" The clement -which intrigued Mac Arthur's intelligence was the sm--
■mediate recognition that the Sorge story did not begin or end with Tokyo
hut was only a chip in the general mosaic of Soviet strategic design. An investigation was opened into the Shanghai period and the Comintern 'apparatus.'
In Shanghai, in the early Thirties, we are not dealing with the period
of uneasy alliance with the Soviet, 1941-1945, but with the prewar years of
I929-19}9, in the heyday of the Hid International, prelude to the infamous
Stalin-Httler Pact, sole factor that made World War II at all possible.
We are dealing here with a conspiratorial epoch in the history of
modern China. Shanghai was the vineyard of Communism. Here were sown
the dragons' teeth that have ripened into the Red harvest of to-day, and the
farm labor was done by men and women of many nationalities who had no
personal stakes in China other than an inexplicable fanaticism for an alien cause,
the Communist 'jehad' of Pan-Slavism for the subjugation of the Western
World. Most of the old wheethorses of the American Communist Party appear
to have been operating in Shanghai, in one period or another, the 'professionals'
of the clandestine fraternity, as well as the mere acolytes and dupes, who are
flirting with the Red menace. There are Earl Browder, Eugene Dennis, Gerhardt
Eisler, Harry Berger, Sam Darcy, and many others. The cumulative report
contains over ISO identities, surnames, aliases and code-designations, derived from
authenticated Court Records or the dossiers of the French and British Sections,
Shanghai Municipal Police.
The exact degree of relationship or association ranges from direct
espionage by Comintern agents to the twilight-zotie of fellow-travelling dupes
and befuddled liberals—apparently unaivare that they have drifted into an
international conspiracy for the sole benefit of an alien Government
