Soviet Central Committee schedules early meeting

The Soviet Communist Party Central Committee is to hold an unusually early plenum in October at which some changes in the Kremlin leadership may be announced, Soviet sources said Saturday. They told Reuters the plenum would be held ''within the next two weeks'' and be followed by a full session of the Supreme Soviet (congress), which might also ratify changes in the government. Officials at the Supreme Soviet confirmed that a session was planned for the beginning of October and said it was possible that changes in the ruling 12-man Politburo might be approved at the Central Committee meeting, but they refused to comment further.
