KLEBER15 FIGHTING BE Soldier of Revolution Communist General's In- lernalional Column Plays Decisive Role By NBA Service Communism's greatest soldier outside Russia has been a deciding factor in Ihe turn of the, Spanish civil war- toward loyalist, sue- ce.°f. Fie. is Emit Kleber, commander ot the intemnUonal Column, tlie volunteer "Foreign I/jgton," which has been one of the Spanish government's best assets against tlie Rebels/ Kleber is a man of mystery. He Is Austrian-born, and Kleber may cr may not be his real name. Revolutionist figures often make their own names. It is possible that he has taken the name of the famous French revolutionary general Jean Baptists Klcbcr, who also was Ai;s trlan by birth. JOINED VOI.SI1EVIKS At any rate, during the WorlO War Kmil Kleher was "captured" • from the Austrinns by the Russians and "escaped" to go to Canada. There he joined the expeditionary force sent to Siberia but was soon fighting for the Russians instead of the Canadians He heloed fashion the Par Easten Republic, since merged in the Soviet union. Kleber than became an organ izcr Cf Communist "Storm Troops' in Hamburg until that movemen vas suppressed. Years of comparative obscurlt followed, though New York Com numlst circles knew him well. H became a naturalized Canadian. KleBcr next turned up as a general of a Red army In China, where he conducted a masterlv campaisn to save an army of' : 56,000 Reds from capture by a vast army of Chang Kai-shek, who had him almost surrounded with 1,200.00P trooos. Kleber marched 3500 miles, continually defeating nationalist forces sent against him in a campaign which many consider the mosl amazing of modern times. He saver 1 his army, much of which is stil' intact in Northern China. Then )> 'returned to Canada to carry on Communist work with Tjm. Bucl- Cnnnd»'5 Ni. I Communist.
