STALIN'S HAND IN SPAIN

These reports made it clear that the Ogpu was plotting to crush the "uncontrollable" elements in Barcelona and seize control for Stalin.
On May 2, Sloutski telephoned me at the Hotel Savoy, and asked me to call on an important Spanish Communist named Garcia. He was the chief of the secret service of the Loyalist government, which now had its capital at Valencia. He had been sent to Russia to attend the May Day celebration. Because of preoccupation with the purge, a telegram announcing his arrival had been neglected. No one had met him, and he was all alone at the New Moscow Hotel. Sloutski asked me to repair the oversight as best I could.
I went with a comrade to visit Garcia, and found a neat and vigorous man in his early thirties. He told me that his good friend, Orlov, chief of the Ogpu in Spain, had kindly arranged this little vacation for him in the Soviet capital.
" I was happy to come," he said, "but no one greeted me, and I could not get a pass to enter the Red Square on May Day. All I was able to see of the parade was glimpses of it across the river from my window here."
We extended apologies to Comrade Garcia and took him to dinner at the Savoy. He remarked that the Soviet workers in the streets were obviously much worse off than the Spanish workers, even during civil war. He had observed that supplies were scarce, and he asked me why the Soviet Government was not successful in raising the standard of living of the masses.
When I saw Sloutski, I asked him: "What's the idea of bringing that Spaniard over here?"
"Orlov wants him out of the way," Sloutski said. " We have to keep him amused here until the end of May.
