"...Ludwig C. A. K. Martens, ambassador for the Soviets and press agent of revolution, will go back to Russia under official pressure from Washington.  He will travel as a guest of the United States Government, which, in the sudden order for his expulsion, provides that he may be treated with every kindness and courtesy on the way.

"News of the government's intention to put Martens forcibly out of the country was unexpected....  And to understand it fully you will have to consider the certain effects of this particular ouster on the governing minds in other countries and on our own west coast, where great dreams have been dreamed ever since Washing D. Vanderlip took a taxicab full of concession guarantees away from Lenine's office in Moscow."
