Communism's greatest soldier outside Russia has been a deciding factor in the turn of the Spanish civil ward toward Loyalist success. He is Emil Kleber, commander of the International Column, the volunteer "Foreign Legion," which has been one of the Spanish government's best assets against the Rebels. Kleber is a man of mystery. He is Austrian-born, and Kleber may or may not ba 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 Baptiste Kleber, who also was Austrian by birth. Joined Bolsheviks. At any rate during the World war Emil Kleber was "captured" from the Austrlans 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 helped fashion the Far Eastern Republic, since merged in the Soviet Union. Kleber then became an organizer of Communist "Storm Troops" in Hamburg until that movement was suppressed. Years of comparative obscurity followed, though New York Communist circles knew him well. He became a naturalized Canadian. Kleber next turned up as a general of a Red army in China, where he conducted a masterly campaign to save an army of 56,000 Reds from capture by a vast army of Chang Kai-shek, who had him almost surrounded with 1,200,000 troops. Kleber marched 3,500 miles, continually defeating nationalist forces sent against him in a campaign which many consider the most amazing of modern times. He saved his army, much of which is still intact in Northern China. Then he returned to Canada to carry on iommunist work with Tim Buck, lanada's No. 1 Communist. Bolstered Loyalists. A year ago he went to Spain and offered his services to the Spanish government. The International Column, which Kleber commands, is made up of volunteers from many nations; Communists, Socialists, or others sympathetic to the Spanish cause, including many Americans Gfay County Records Compiled by Pampa Credit Association Mineral deed: City Bank Farmers Trust Company to Virginia Fisher Lombard, all of Sections 63. 89. 91. 92. 93, 120, and 119, block B-27 I&GN and the E',4 of section 85, block 3, be of the value of $300.00 per annum, and which caused damage to plaintiff Mrs. E.

Plaintiffs further respectfully show unto the Court that since the date of the execution and delivery of said lease the defendant herein las sold water from said premises, to adjoining lessees, for drilling operations conducted upon lands other than those owned by any of the plaintiffs in this cause, in excess of the value of $1,000.00, and for none of which has the defendant herein accounted to plaintiff Mrs. E. J. Case, as the owner thereof, all to her additional damage in said sum of $1,000.00. 4th. Plaintiffs further respectfully show unto the Court that since the date of the execution and delivery of said lease, and during the year 1928, plaintiff Mrs. E. J. Case sold an undivided one-half interest in the oil and minerals under said land to plaintiffs Ellen M. Case and H. B. Tiemann, who have been the owners of an undivided one-half interest in the oil and minerals under said lands since said date, and that plaintiffs herein have been entitled to receive the oil and gas royalties payable under the terms of said lease since 1928, and that since said date the defendant herein has sold gas from said premises to other operators for their use in conduct- Ing drilling operations upon lands owned by others than the plaintiffs, to the value of $5,600.00, plaintiffs' one-eighth royalty thereunder being the sum of $700.00, and for none of which has the defendant herein accounted to plaintiffs, to plaintiffs' damage in said sum of $700.00. Wherefore, premises considered, plaintiffs pray that the defendant be cited to appear and answer herein and that at time of trial hereof they have judgment against the defendant for their said damages, together with all costs of this suit, as well as such other and further relief, general or special, legal or equitable, as may be their due upon the facts herein shown. Herein fail not, and have you before said Court, at its aforesaid next regular term, this writ with your return thereon, showing how you have executed the same. Given under my hand and the seal of said Court, at office in Pampa, Texas, this the 27th day of March, A. D. 1937. MIRIAM WILSON, Clerk, District Court, Gray County. (Seal) (March 31-April 7-14-21.) Gen. Emil Richer Legend is growing around this man, who, as the mysterious Emil Klebcr, has campaigned in revolutionary battles around the world. In his latest exploit, he is commander of the International Column, a key unit in the Spanish Loyalist fight against Rebel forces. His men were thrown in at the crucial point in the siege of Madrid, and are believed to have had a great part in the sudden stiffening of resistance and the reassuming of the offensive by the government forces. Kleber is 41, a large-boned, powerful man with high cheek-bones, a broad nose, thick lips and heavy eyebrows. He is idolized by his troops, who have seen him come into the front lines and shoulder a rifle at times. Only on special occasions does he wear a military uniform, frequently being seen in breeches, golf hose and a sweater. Many consider that the International Column which Kleber molded from his volunteers, Is the best military unit on either side of the Spanish war, and that Kleber is one of the greatest soldiers of 'this century, a genius at building, armies out of undisciplined masses.

China's imports of cigarets, which averaged 7,310,000,000 annually during the 1926-1930 period, receded to 75,000,000 last year as a result of increasing domestic production and tariffs.

Stormy spring weather mixed death and hope in Texas last night. Two San Antonio high school seniors died from contact with a live wire torn from a pole by a 40- mile wind during a Storm which piled up half an inch of rain in an hour. The victims were Brandt Badger, 16, and Glenn Cochran, 17, a senior in Thomas Jefferson high school. Firemen believed the younger boy died instantly as he and Cochran tried to push a water-stalled auto- moblle ; Cochran died in a hospital shortly' after the accident. A companion who stayed in the car while the other two pushed said he saw Cachran trying to pull the prostrate Badger from the charged wire.

Rains elsewhere in Texas heartened farmers. Panhandle and north Texas areas reported prospects good for the best wheat and oat crops in years. A yield of 10 bushels ah acre was forecase for the upper Panhandle region and the rains have put land in fine condition for cotton and row crops, Amarillo sources said. Wichita Falls area farmers waited for fields to dry to dry to plant cotton. Wheat and ots growers an* ticipated the best crops In several years. Steady rains mounting in some cases to one and a half niches have given the south plains area a sub* stahtial sub-soil seasoning needed for cotton planting later. The rains extended almost the breadth of North Texas, touching Dallas and Fort Worth. Strong puffs of wind briefly preceded the Dallas shower dast night. Other points reporting good rains included Abilene, Lubbock, Electra, San Angelo, Olney, Olton, Littlefield. ' TEMPERANCE PLUS LINTON, Ind.
