This Was Reckless Drivins Once
Stalin Hailed as Lenin's Savior
ilofcow, U. S. S. H. How Joseph
Stalin, undisputed leader of the Soviet
domain, once turned barber and cut
the board and nnistnche of Lenin Is
revealed In a dramatic account of the
scone Just written by Gregory Zlnovlev.
"I remember how Stalin, armed with
scissors, clipped beard and mustache
Rt the very moment,' Zlnovlev writes
In an article In Tavda telling of
Letiln's escape In July, 1017.
The arrest of the foremost Rolshe
vlk had been ordered by Kerensky't
provisional government as a measure
of public safety. Lenin was hidden
In the apartment of a certain AM
douev and a great controversy raged
In Bolshevik ranks as to whether ha
ought to give himself tip.
Zlnovlev gives Stnlln much of the
credit for the fact that the leader was
not handed over. Lenin himself was
Inclined to give up, on the theory ad
vanced by many friends that the gov
ernment would not dare hurt him.
Moreover, the widespread charge that
he was a German agent, some of the
Bolsheviks feared, would find support
If Lenin continued to hide.
But Stalin, OrdJInikidze and others
Insisted that the risk was not worth
It. According to Zlnovlev their work
helped the central committee of the

and rifle fire. Through efforts of bank
officers the police department has been
provided with a machine gun and two
extra magazines of cartridges for di
rect protection of the bnnks. A sei
ond machine pin will be kept at police
headquarters for emergency purposes.
The machine gnn used for the direct
protection of the banks has been
mounted at a concealed point where
It commands the Intersection on which
the three hanks are located, and In
the event of an attempted bank rob
bery the landits would at once be ex
posed to the fire of this machine gun,
which In nn Instant could sweep clean
the street corners housing the banks.
In addition to this machine gun pro
tection, eli'ht citizens who are expert
marksmen and possess high powered
rifles have formed an organization
and will co-operate with the police
and the sheriff and his deputies In
protecting the banks.
Thus at the slightest alnrm, should
bni.k robbers appear at any of the
batiks, they would Instantly be under
a hail of machine gun nnd rifle bul-
