Among positions which Fer jencik has held were Slovak minister of the interior and min ister of defense. He remained in Czechoslovakia after the Communists completed their seizure of power. But in July. 1948, he escaped over the border with another Czech gen eral. Antonin Hasal, and both men contacted American Army I authorities in the western zone of Germany. At that time, Hasal said that if war broke out elements of the Czech army would "certainly try to operate with the West." When the Ferjenciks were es corted by armed guards from the ship to Eilis Island, the immigra tion inspector said "The general is being held as a suspected Com munist,” and declined further comment. Newsmen were not permitted to talk with the general, but he was heard to say “some good will come of all this.’ The general and his wife came to this country as individuals and were not sponsored by any organ ization as displaced persons.
