She also has her ideas about the subtle kitchenpropaganda employed by enemy aliens here with such conspicuous success during the war. What kind of an American consciousneu can you grow. she added, in an atmosphere of sauer kraut and limhurger cheese. Or what can you expect of the Americanism of the man whose breath always reeks of garlic. If it hadn been for a lot of these despised foreigners. who doubtless spoke in slien tongues. and whose breath perhaps reeked with sauerkraut and garlic, Mrs. Guernsey heroic anoesors would probably be still running from the British red.

Anyway, what we need is not Daughters of the American Revolution but Mothers of the American Revolution.
Look Out Russia! Keep Your Hand on Your Watch!
HE Allie: and the American Government are beginning to talk soft about Soviet Russia.
As several rim before. the diplomats are addressing honeymi words to the Bolsheviki. and carefully spreading rumors that the Soviet Government is ahdut to be recognised Every time this has happened so far, it has bear followed by brutal and treacherous attacks. What are the lmperialists cooking up now? Depend upon it, they do not intend to allow Soviet Russia to exist if they can help it. They inlaid to crush the Proletarian Republics, and with them the international workingclass organization which is now beginning to take shape.
It is now four months since the Gova of the United States and Great Britain solemnly announced that they had decided to withdraw their troops from Siberia and Archangel. They have since been reinforcing them. In fact, we see by today papers that the Allies in the North are advancing, and driving the Russians southward. as they are also pushing on in the East. But they are gating craftier; the newspapers now talk of the loyal Russians? as advancing, and keep the Allied troops strictly in the background. But we happen to know that even by promises of food. conscription, and the starvation and punishment of the inhahitants who refuse to fight, the Allis have only been able to get a handful of Russians to join the loyal troops.
Somahing is up. Some dark business is being hatched. We have no fear of results; so far, the results of the Allied invasion of Russia have bear to unite the Russians around the Soviet Government.

But just the same. Rosa look out for that goldbrink!
What a Program. We shouldn spend our time quarreling among ourselves about right and left wing programs. but fight the common enemy.
Thus writes a Comrade. And immediately we ask What a program? and our anown is: that a program is a weapon, a weapon in the class war against capitalism.
Presumably the comrade isn particular about the weapon he uses so long as he in action. He can bear to waste time deciding upon a choice of weapons, but would seize the first to hand. whether it was an eflective or not whether it melted in his hand or could be sent ripping into the citadel of the enemy. Then the thought comes that through the wise choice of weapons and their elbcient use we will win. Time spent in carefully, even quarrellingly selecting our weapons at each stage of the development of the class war will be well spent. Weapons must be chosen.
Let us chooae them well. And remember. the autocrats of industry do not run business at the ballot box. Neither do they rob the worker there The Ohio Socialist.

The need is desperate, and the Russian organizations can be oi little help with their meagre resources.
Moreover, many lsclories are dosed. and the workers cannot find employment.
Helplas in these terrible circumstances. we. the Workers Red Cross of Russia. have applied (or assistance to the American lied Cross; but this organization. which is any posed to render aid to all without exception, without regard to their political beliefs. has not even favored us with a reply.
