I Trade Organization ? Union Is Strong
or Weak as Membership Wills.
| Some recent court procedure, -while
| aimed at the very existeuce of the
j trade uuions, will nevertheless l?e pro

| iudividuu! member his responsibility

, as to whether he was or was not pres- 1
I ent at the meeting at which certain ao- !
! tlon may have been taken. The stay j
i at home element is the greatest dray
to trade union effort. The trade union
is the most important society with
which the wage earner is affiliated,
it is his bread and butter organization.
Under our present wage system it fixes ;
the couditious under which he works
i and the money return /or his labor.
Nothing can be more Important to the
toiler from an existence standpoint
than the wage and conditions under
which he labors, for these directly af
fect the enjoyment of life and the pur
, suit of happiness.
Radicalism used in its worst and de- 1
j structive sense means the ruination of I
the trade unions and the consequent
J and sure deterioration iu conditions
i which have been established by trade

i that the disintegration of the trade uu- I

j The hypercritical member of tbe
J trade union, tbe suing- and contented
member, the member with the idea
that he is socially superior to bis en
vironment and his fellows, the self
centered member? In brief, the short
sighted and unwise member who ab
sents himself from the meetings of his
trade union? is directly and surely aid
ing the disciples of radicalism to
achieve their masked desires.
Kemember that you are responsible
[ for your union and its welfare. Von
j cannot shirk that responsibility. The
union is what you and your colleagues
make it. it can and should be a pow
erful engiue for Justice for the ?:t'e
earner. Tbe wage earner's future is in I
his own hands. He must work out bis j
own destiny. He has an instrument |
ready at hand in his trade union for j
his elevation to a higher and better i
I sphere. He must use that instrument j
! with care and discretion.

depended upon you.
Attend the meetings of your union.
That many of the evils ot' which we
complain -nearly all of the misunder
standing and a great proportion of the
unfounded criticism would be eliminat
ed if we had a better attendance at
union meetings is an opinion formed
by ine as a result of many years of
! trade union experience, both as a
member of a local union, an officer of
that union and an otlicer of the inter
national organization. The men and
women who tret to the union meetings
understand the policies that are being
made effective and, as a general rule,
are well satisfied with the progress
that we are making. Hut whether
rbey are satisfied or not they know j
what they are talking about, for they I
have the facts first hand, in a num
ber of our local unions the rebate sys
| tem of dues is in effect and seems t<>
, be giving satisfaction, or at least
! brings about a large attendance of
j members. But whatever method may
j Pe adopted, if it will result in more
! members at the meetings it is bound
| to be a source of strength to the un
? i<>n. We want intelligent criticism, j
and we want suggestions that are
i based on knowledge and experience,
j This criticism and these suggestions
j will come in greater proportion of wis
j dom if the members tirst learn of their

j ganizatiou from attendance at local 1111
