War is not apart from, bul is an Integral "Greatest Work of All" G. H. Leekwood As we see things every movement is made up of two kinds of people, the pullers or pushers, and -the riders or "goalongs." Of course, these "go-alongs" are better than the outsiders who either pull back, or refuse to even notice the movement. But the real important members are the fellows who get in the harness and help lift the load. In the labor movement there are many fine workers and a good chance for a lot more. There never was a great movement before that offered such a good chance for the earnest individual worker to help push or pull. In the first place, as an ordinary member of the rank and file, his voice can be heard and his vote can, and should, decide ev fry thing. To properly function, then, as just a member of the rank and file |g of very great importance, the very life of this wonderful new move ment depends on this intelligent, indi vidual action, collectively exercised. But to be merely a speaking and voting member is not enough. Each individual member, us well as the or ganization, should help to reach the unconverted and uninformed, SUB RUSTLERS State Office, per lecture 29 ! M. Shipley, Seattle lecture II Jack LayiiKiM.

But the working of any particular government can have no part ho long as Its do minion Is capitalistic, in .;iii such governments the workers are subju ■'■ 'i to Cue uses or Its capitalists.

You might as well try to make an acre of a i alt mean frei h i ii follows that internationalism is 11 an Indispensable fundamental of our I movement. Without it ours would The individual has but one vole,?. Few are public speakers. Even the public speakers reach but a compara tively few of the unconverted, the bulk of their audience is already con verted. Public meetings give added strength and understanding, enthuse new life and are important, BUT — THE f!REAT WORK of the move ment must hfi done by the individual members of the rank and file. It is the work of distributing literature, pamphlets, papers, magazines, books, and especially taking subscriptions to papers. The individual pamphlet or book may be forgotten, but the con stant knocking of the periodical at the doors of intelligence is sure to open ' the way for the truth. The great NEED of the movement today is more active workers among the rank and file. In every group of ten members it is safe to say that not over one is an active literature hustler. THERE SHOULD BE TEN. There is not a person but can se cure a few subscribers to papers and magazines; not one but can own a few books and pamphlets and keep them in constant circulation; not one but CAN REACH OTHERS BY PER SONAL WORD AND INFLUENCE, SEATTLE'S NEW PAPER "Red Feather" is the title of ;i new paper just launched in Seattlo, under the editorship «f thai earnest chain iiinn of revolutionary Socialism, Com rade Bruce Rogers, formerly on the editorial staff of the Appeal to llea- Bon, .-ukl a frequent and valued con trlbutor to The Northwest Worker.

To join the great labor movement, the real labor movement, for the com plete emancipation of the working class, does not relieve you from per sonal responsibility. True it greatly strengthens your individual power, but it opens the doors to new duties and obligations. In the movements of the past, move ments that belong to the old regime, when (he individual joined, he al most ceased to function; he became but a part of a great whole that h£d swallowed him. In our movement it 111 different: here the rank and file ARE THE MOVEMENT, and it is up to the individual member of the rank and file to SEE TO IT THAT THEY CONTINUE TO BE THE MOVE MENT. Above all else the rank and file should push the literature. People must read to understand a movement like ours. All this literature cam paign must be aggressive on the IN SIDE as well us on the outside of the movement. See that ALL people are properly informed- then all will be worthy to take the responsibility.
