, j AN u AR.Y. i BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Alexander Troyanovsky Son o( An Army Colonel, HP Suffered Exile for His Views Under Czars. I BY WILLIS THORNTON SEA Srrvlw Siaff Correspondent WASHINGTON.—Alexander An- tonovitcli Troyanovsky, ihe new Russian ambassador, Is rushing through tUc customary round of diplomatic visits and courtesies ulih unusual speed, so that he tod gtt down to the real business of .settling the details of Russian- American relations, left unfinished after ihe "recognition visit" of Maxim Lllvinoff. The new ambassador is another of those many substantial contributions to the proletarian state made by tne upper middle classes He is the son of a Czarist colonel v;ho fought for Russia \n the Crimea at Sebastopol—and a Russian colonel was somebody socially in those days. Trained himself as an artillery officer. Troyanovsky's college days were interrupted by service in the Russo-Japanese War, and he served also as a battery commander for the revolutionists ' against the Austrians in 1911. Story Is Romantic So the heavy gold cordons and braid on American blue dress uniforms that flanked Troyanovsky a.i he made his bow at the White House were probably not impressive to him. The story of this squat, heavy- pet man. whose square face dominated by thick black eve- brows until a pleasing smite lights it uo,, is one of those romances Russia hns bred so plentifully in 1h" last 15 years. . | Not quite 52 years old today,! Troyanovsky was born in Tula. a. metallurgical center of central Russia, in 1882. Son of an "old army" man, he sent to a military academy. Later he studied -chemistry and jurisprudence at the University of Kiev, and he smiles today in con-1 ferine this strange combination. Those were the days when the ] universities were the hotbeds of revolutionary activity against Czar- Ism in Russia, and. by 1904, Troy- anovsfcv was a member of the Social-Democratic .party. • c » • Esrines From Siberia When his service as n young F'ibaltem in the Russo-Japanese War was over, with all the eravity of a colleftian, he wrote and submitted a formal resignation of his commission.., taying that. he... abhorred war the more for having seen it, and that he no longer could -serve the Czar in the armed lorces. ' Those were davs when mere mefnbershio in the Social-Democratic party was. a one-way ticket to Siberia, and in 1908. Troyanov- skv got his ticket. But within -a year he escaped, find for nine years he lived abroad, in Prance. Switzerland, and Austria, making a living by writing and teaching During this nflriod. as. a .young revolutionary Idealist of 28. he met Lenin and Stalifi. both of whom ns fellow-exiles were conducting their revolutionary work from Switzerland. When 1917 came, and Kerensky topoled the Czarist shell. Ttovan- ovsky was one of the Russians who rushed home to the fatherland to offer their services to the revolution. It was then that he fought with the revolutionary army. * * * Ambassador to Japan The campaigns concluded, Troy- anovsky entered the government service and worked in turn in the archives department, the commissariat of workers and peasants inspection, the state tradine coroor- ation iGostorg). nnd in foreign tinde work. Five years ago he became ambassador to .Tanan, his first diplomatic post. While there he suoer- vised adiusttnent of several difficult controversies with Japan over fisheries^rtehts in the seas that lie between the Jananese islands and Siberia, and which nt one time aci"allv threatened war. Trv;n. after brief service with the state planning commission anc wllh the cemral executive committee fof which he still is a member). Trovnnovpky was sen' to Washington.
