It is the right of every official and
every member of organized labor to
disagree with Foster and those who
believe as he does. It is also the
right of Foster and his followers to
disagree with every official and with
members of organized labor.
With logic lacking to answer the
arguments for amalgamation and in
dependent political action, no good
will is to be aroused for those who
differ with Foster and his ideas by
attempting to make it appear that
Foster and his associates have never
done anything constructive for the
labor movement, and are a menace to
. Foster was years ago a member of
the I. W. W. He toured Europe in
working class fashion. He studied
the labor movements of that contin
ent and returned to this country con
vinced that dual organizations like
the I. W. W. were a menace to the
welfare of the labor movement.
Acting as he believed he left the
I. W. W. and became a staunch mem
ber of the American Federation of
Labor. For a while he was the prize
boy with the A. F. of L. officialdom.
He was asked to contribute and did
contribute articles to the Federation
ist, official organ of the American
Federation of Labor. .
Things went smoothly until it be
came apparent that while Foster was
an opponent of dual unionism, he be
lieved that there should be one union
for each industry and that the A. F.
of L. should work to bring about this
needed change in organization. Then
the ardor of officialdom for Foster
commenced to cool.
That these unions in later years
were unable to meet the onslaught of
the employers was not the fault of
Foster but of those who insisted in
the disintegration of a council that
had been formed to bring more united
action among the packing house un
In the big organizing campaign in
the steel industry, it was Foster who
was intrusted with its leadership by
the international union officials,

Men organized at one point would
become restless and demand action.
Finally this culminated in a premature
strike. Premature for the reason that
the money was lacking to send suf
ficient organizers to all points where
steel was manufactured at the same
time. . v

worthy of notice that conservative

It also should not be passed without
consideration that one of the greatest
influence against dual unionism in
the United States has come from the
leaders of the soviets. Radicals who
could not be influenced by the con
servative A. F. of L. officials have
been influenced to stay in the A. F. of
L. where they belong by the leaders
of the Russian movement.
And in this fight against dual \m
ionism none has been more active
and loyal than Foster.
It is the influence of Foster to
with the opposition to dual
ism by Russian radicals, that as much
and more than anything else is to be
credited with checking the headway
of dualism in the United States.
Foster and those arrested with him
at Michigan face pealties of from one
to ten years in prison under the stone

They face that penalty not for any
thing they were doing to promote
their own selfish purpose but for what
they conceived to be for the benefit
of the workers of the entire nation.
Hounded and harried by a govern

It is the right of every worker and
