    Background: Khabarovsk (pronounced HAH-BAB-ROVSK with the emphasis as in Tovarich), a major city in the Soviet Far East, is making its own preparation for the Revolution Anniversary on November 7. Buildings are decorated with signs marking the 50th anniversary, most of them with a picture of the man who started the biggest uprising the world has ever known, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. Occasionally there are portraits of Leonid Preshnev. Nicolsi Podgorny and Alexei Kosygin. Most of the decorations are on public buildings in the central area - such as department stores, the Young Pioneers Palace, the steamship office and the concert hall - and they are all very simple in design and appearance. Some of the decorations -such as one on Komsolmolskaya Square - recall World War Two (or the Great Patriots War, as the Russians call it). Apartment buildings are observing the occasion with red flags and bunting. Khabarvsk, a city of 450,000 and 5,000 miles from Moscow, lies on the mighty Amur River and is separated from China only by a range of hills. It will celebrate the big day with a parade in Lenin Square of troops and military hardware, including rockets and smaller missiles, which were revealed during a dress rehearsal at two o'clock in the morning recently. Afterwards there will be family parties and reunions, where everyone will stuff themselves stupid with food and get pissed on champagne, vodka and beer. It will be the same in Irkutsk, the East Siberian industrial city on the Angara River. But here there will be only a workers' parade and demonstration. In the central part of the city (not necessarily the suburbs), there are very few indications of the Anniversary. Apart from signs in one or two shop windows, on lamp posts and the occasional building, the city, including major government office blocks, was bereft of decorations with only a week to go to the Anniversary. However, local officials promise & last-minute splash of colour to enliven not only the Anniversary but the snow-covered streets as well.
