f World for Djdmocracy", and that sort of stuff. And now you are asking yourself, "What have I got out of itr ? And the answer is that you have not gotten anything out of it except enough to keep you and ; rour family in semi-comfort WHILE YOU WERE FORKING! And it's making a Bolshevik of you. It's getting into your head that those Bolsheviks must be pretty clever to put a game accross like that on the Bosses taking the factories away from them and running them all for the workers. And making all the conditions of work themselves too, setting the hours, the rates of pay, making it so that no worker can be fired as long as his work is up to the standard fixed by the workers themselves. And guaranteeing every worker a job too, never closing down until all have what they need, and plenty too. Pretty clever, those Bolsheviks. THE TOILER page m To tell the truth, John, the only ray of hope you have now is that which comes stealing accross the world, the thin red line that already has. en circled the globe and is spreading wider and wader every day.

It's precisely the same things that made Bolsheviks of the Russians that are making Bolsheviks of you and' workers everywhere. And the Bosses can't stop this. ) Yes, John, they turned you out of the shop a merely more or less contended slave.

With R ors ah brand ous. f Thd Societjy for Resumption of ti ican Labor Alliance usspa has sent out a letter to the goytrn- (f newspapers throughout the country g the statement as un-American and libel- telegram issued by the American Defense states that the campaign of labor is being made "falsely in the name of organized labor by radicals who opposed the interests of the United States in the great war," and calls upon the Governors to give publicity to this statement so that everywhere citizens' committees may be or ganised to combat the action of labor. It further states that "there is reason to believe that the movement to promote commerce with Soviet Rus sia, is backed and financed by Lenine and Trotzky and their agents."' Officers of the American Labor Alliance for Trade Relations with Rusisa declare that the work of their organization has not only been planned and financed by labor unions of New York but that the Alliance was formed bf i authorized delegates of labor unions of Greater New York who met in conference on the 'Ztfsat of November when resolutions were drawn. in calling upon the State Department to open trade relations with Russia at once so that the preaeaf unomployment situation might be relieved. FSmt International Unions, they say, were represented at this conference and over one hundred labor organizations, representing all trades, and every cent of their funds was contributed or pledged by labor unions of New York in open meeting. "W: know of no propaganda in this country says the letter, "paid for by the Russian Govern ment, nor do we know whether there exists pro paganda paid for bv other foreign governments that are commercial rivals of the United States.
