FRIDAY, SEPT. 24, 1080
U. S. Troops In Europe
There are 18,000 American soldiers iin
Europe. Senator Capper points out, in his news
paper, that this means any number of chances
to get war started without Congress having a
word to say a!bout it. Once these soldiers get
mixed up in anything, the president can order
forward any additional number of soldiers
which he may consider necessary for protec
tion of the "national honor." ,
We have already noticed 'that the president
can get wars started and keep them going with
out bothering to ask Congress about them. He
asks no one, as far as the records show, but
he does manage to keep things going along the
lines of policy desired by 'the international
financiers. The Constitution says something
about Congress having the power to declare
war, but what's the , Consitution between
friends? The Constitution is something for the
workers to respect.
"World Literature"
The greatest scheme of popular literary edu
cation ever conceived by the mind of man is
being carried out in Russia. Under the People's
Commissary for Instruction, a great publishing
house has been founded by Maxim Gorky to un
dertake a comprehensive publication of "World
Literature."
This includes 1500 books, representing the
best published in all countries during the past
150 years; also 3000 5000 small volumes, for
the masses, con'taining the most notable pieces
of literature of Eqrope and America, with bio
graphies, notes, sociological sketches, etc. The
plan will later be extended to include the liter
ature of the Middle Ages, of the Slavonic peo
ples, of the Near and Far Earft. 1
The honor for this great undertaking, says
Gorky, "belongs to the creative forces of the
Russian Revolution of the revolution whose
enemies consider it 'the rising of the bar
bariahs.' "
It is, indeed, an inspiration to think of this
'ami other projects inaugurated in the midst of
bloody conflict to bring to the workers and
peasants of Russia the enlightenment of all the
world and of all the ages.

Bloodhounds
JuSt before the Civil War bloodhounds were
used to run down fugitive slaves. Sixty years
later on the eve of the Aemircan proletarian
revolution! 4he masters are iblood-huntmg for
workers who tell their fellow-workers that
the't job as men, ndt as slaves, is to overthrow
the capitalist system. As slaves, these workers
make enormous profits for their capitalist ma
sters. As men, realizing their own worthiness
as human beings, -they will make revolution
agajnst capitalism.
Six miles out of Spokane, in the woods, 10
members of the I. W. W. wore caiught by tho
bloodhounds. They were trying to hold a con
ference. They are now jtiiled as "criminal
sywlicalisits."
There will be many thousands of cases like
this. They will only end when the workers re
alize that they are far more numerous than all
the others together, and that by a little intel
ligent teamwork they can take over the con
trol of the social system.
