Sverdlovsk University, at Moscow for training Soviet bureaucrats. The above is, no doubt, only a partial list of Soviet subversive schools. But the terrifying thing about the picture is that the United States and the rest of the West have no political warfare schools at all! For thirty years the Communists wye been training political warfare ex- perts. We have trained none. Is it any V*onder we are losing the cold war? Because Lenin LIniversity is the col- jege attended by most American students "i the U.S.S.R., there is more informa- ,1('ii available concerning it them about the others mentioned. There follows an account of the operalion of that school drawn from the experiences of three graduates. They are Joseph Zack Kornfeder, an American born in Slovakia; "illiam Odell Nowell, an American Ne- 8ro, born in Georgia; and John Hladun. 'Canadian of Ukranian extraction from Winnipeg. The origins of these men Sives a significant clue to the kinds of Jjunority group citizens on whom the Communists like to work. Kornfeder was the first of the three ;° join the party, and the first to go to *»Oacow for special training. His story e'ps explain why so many people, updated by the first World War, turned 0 communism.

In 1916, already a Socialist, he came to this country and lived in the Yorkville section of New York. In 1919 he joined the newly formed Communist party of the U. S. A. After surviving the customary party feuds and changes of leadership, and achieving the rank of Central Executive committeeman he was selected in 1928 by the Soviet General Gussev. then the resident underground Comin tern boss of U. S. communism, to go to Moscow for special political training. He filled the requirements in force at the time by having been a party member for over five years, and being in good health and under 35. Also required was ap proval from the American Politburo. George Mine, a G.P.U. agent, furnish- i el the citizenship papers of one Samuel Fox, and with these and a comrade who signed a false affidavit, Kornfeder obtained a passport in that name. Inciden- tally, this George Mine was later thought to have played a key role in the assassination of Trotsky and was to achieve additional notoriety when he drunkenly tried to rape a chambermaid in a Copenhagen hotel. With his false passport and assumed name, Kornfeder sailed on a Hamburg- American liner to Germany.
