Whfn darkness fell, (he warriors cjme out of their "Trojan Horse" »nd let the Greek Army Into the city. Today communism hai evolved the skeleton of a new Trojan Horse—in Europe. It Is being buill up for Moscow's use as the Kremlin needs it. William I/, Ryan, AP foreign news analyst who t> tour Inn areas adjacent to Ihe Iron Curtain, tells about If In a revealing series of articles of which this Is the first. By WILLIAM L. KVAN VIENNA (AP)—A danger signal Is going up over Western Europe today. It is not ft war alarm. It Is a warning against a Stalinist Trojan Horse. ,A mighty fifth column Is being organized with utmost care to serve Kremlin Imperialism, it Ls a long- range program. Diagrammed, this Trojan Horse would have Its belly in Central • Europe, and Its feet reaching out in many directions— to Europe, to Italy, to Western Germany, to Greece, the Middle East. Non-Communists, Including many Americans In official capacity. say the fifth column has reached proportions of alarm and is still building — carefully. The Soviets have a chain of command running from the Kremlin Ihroueh the Cominform and into a tight organization with headquarters in Vienna. The overall brain of the Comin- form Communist Information Organization, essentially a successor to the Comintern is George Mal- enkov. He is one of Stalin's deputies and possibly his heir. Malcn- kov's chief lieutenant Is Mikhail A. Suslov, one of the secretaries of the USSR Communist. Central Committee. The general staff for Europe includes Ptilmiro Togllatti In Italy, Jacques DuClos In France and Walther Ulbrlcht In East Germany. Soon the world will be hearing a new slogan from tha East, "Unity of Action." Coupled with this will be the cry: "National Resistance." This already ii being applied In the Middle East, biit It Is also- to be applied to Italy and France and perhaps to Western Germany. Its central theme will be resistance to the united States. The "Unity of Action" campaign is to be directed largely at labor In Western Europe. The "National Resistance" will play upon nationalist sentiments, using former Fascist*, Nazis and any others who »r« opportunist enough or unwary enough to cooperate. The Commu- xilsts will remain in the background. The burden of "Unity of Action' will be benefits for labor. Everything that labor considers Ideal, everything that is out of labor's reach, at least In present-day Europe, will be promoted. The immediate aim will be to lure workers Into unions controlled by the Communists, with strong emphasis upon the strategic trades— metal workers, communications •workers, transportation workers, agricultural workers, when domination Is achieved the Communists •will have a powerful weapon for Inducing paralysis whenever they strike. The Communist-doriilnatcd unions, meanwhile, will be used for other Soviet purposes: nagging pressure on governments for on end to defense efforts, an end to the- remilitarization of Western Germany, resumption of East-West trade on terms favorable to the Soviet Union. At the same time the unions, coordinating with other Communist- supported organizations, will bo an instrument tor spreading and for slowing down wherever possible the Western defense effort. Vienna, divided among four occupation powers, is wide open from the East for the Influx of Soviet "experts," and from the West for Stalinist collaborators. One of the most Important Communist outfits here In the World Fcderndon of Trade Unions WPTU. Affiliated with this are many domlnatcd unions which may be recognized by the names: International Federation of Trade Unions of Mclal Workers. International Federation of Trade Unions of this and that industry.

Memoirs of the former high command and n flood of "I wax there" thrillers nre heaped high on the counters of every Japanese book store. They nre finding a ready public In n country just Inking its first steps toward rearmament. Very few of these Boons have hem translated into English. Some of the accounts nre complimentary; some decidedly not, ' The boom started last year. Former Navy Cant.

Another best seller wns former Col. Miisonobu Twill's "Hiding Away 0,000 miles." H recounted his underground adventures while he hid for nearly three years in Thailand, Indochina and China, eluding British authorities who wnnti- ed him as a war criminal suspect. One of the two sensational standouts In the book stores In February was TsuJI's "Singapore." This took partly challenged Winston Churchill's memoirs nnd boldly justified Japan's belligerency a.s "forced by the Anglo-Americans" and contended that, despite defeat, It nevertheless brought about liberation of many Asians.
