How To Defeat The White Guards.
We can do this. With your help we can not
only sell to other workers these thousand copies,
but we can do even better, far better, with your co
operation we can sell four pamphlets where we
would have sold only one at the meeting.
The pamphlets are 25c each. One dollar buys
four of them. WE KNOW there are at least one
thousand readers of The Toiler who have ONE
dollar each to spend RIGHT NOW for four pamph
lets, one for themselves and three to sell to other
workers. It is easy, it is NECESSARY, it MUST be
Hone. The education of the workers must continue.
No interrupting White Guard activities shall be
tolerated. We must circumvent them by this meth
od. A dollar each from one thousand Toiler
waders and the victory is OURS. The ignorance
of the workers is our defeat, it means victory for
the White Guards. Let's do away with ignorance,
shatter the power of the White Guards by educa
ing the workers.
. Victory is in your hands. Your response will
decide whether the hired sluggers of the robbers
of the workers shall gloat, over on easy victory, or
whether we shall turn a momentary defeat into a
great and lasting victory. What is your answer?
Show this to other workers. Take their orders
for copies and then send them in on this blank or
a sheet of paper.

Comrades: I am opposed to the slug

I am enclosing herewith $ for
copies of "Lenin, His Life and
Work" in order to defeat the Czars and Kai-
prs of America.

MOSCOW (Via Christiania and London.)
(N. Y. Bureau) .Emma Goldman who has just
returned here from a three months absence in tiic
Ukraine has issued a statement denying the re
marks attributed to her in an alleged interview
last June with a Chicago Tribune correspondent,
"The statements published in American news
papers which have been attributed to me are ab
solute falsifications full of lying insinuations.
"I love America of the common people. They are
brave spirits fighting for the freedom and well
being of the workers.
"The America which has betrayed all revolu
tionary traditions, which has outraged liberty,
which has enslaved the people, and which is now
seeking to crush Russia that America I hate
with a deadly hatred.
"With all the fibre of my being I am with the
Russian revolution and with the Russian people
in its heroic struggle against the imperialism and
conspiracy of the Allied pack at the throat of
Russia trying desperately to drive and torture the
people back to the old regime. r

INDUSTRIAL CONDITIONS IN
The Ship Yard laid off about 300 men last
week. Most of those laid off were bolters-up ship
fitters and reamers, other workers of the same
kind were' hired to take their places but at a low
er wage. Bolters-up were formerly paid 58 centi
per hour, but were rehired at 46 cents per hour.
Rates for other trades were proportionely low
ered. A systematic campaign is being carried oa
in the shipyards to change them from closed shops
to open shops, here we find one of the advantages
the worker receives through the "American Plan".
If the American worker is not yet convinced that
American democracy and Americanism are the
