HAS GOT IT, TOO
Iuotterdali. --- With four aivowed
bolshevists in the national parlia
menlt, andt with coinunist conmmnit
tees organized in practically every
town of Holland. the threat of oPa id
\Vynkoop, who is called ."Holland's
little I~iebkneeht," that a general
strike will soon be declared appears
to be backed by more than mere
words. In fact, the three biggest
trade unionist groups in Holland are
in active relation with the four .depu
lies. These groups are affil;ated with
the National Worknten's Secretariat~
of which Bernard Lansink is the di
recting head. Lansink works hand
in glove with WX\ynkoop and arranges
for labor demonstrations w(ihenever
WVynkoop desires this reinforcement.
The head of the communist group is
Engeldor Bouwman, an ultra radical
who maintains close relations with
the soviet leaders at Moscow, and
with the Spartacides of Germany.
