LABOR TEMPLE (AND SCHOOL)

A settlement maintained by the Presby-
terian Church; a center and meeting place
for Communist unions and radical organ-
izations; features radical lectures, such as
the 1929 "New series of lectures by V. F.
Calverton" (the Communist) on Freud
and "The Sexual Motif as an Economic
Corollary in Contemporary Literature,"
etc., announced with an appended com-
mendation by Harry Elmer Barnes (vice
pres., Freethinkers (atheist) Society) ; the
1932 lectures for industrial workers and
"consultation and guidance in mental
hygiene with 5 lectures in this connection:
'Substitute for Religion,' 'Biology of Sex' ",
etc. The director is Edmund B. Chaff ee,
whose sympathies for Communism are
clearly shown by the following example:
Communist organizations commonly buy
space in each other's periodicals to send
"Greetings" as a "comradely" gesture and
a financial contribution. The March 18,
1932 issue of the viciously revolutionary
race-hate-inciting "Liberator," organ of
the communist Lg. of Struggle for Negro
Rights (see), carried nearly two pages of



such advertisements headed "Greetings to
the Liberator." Such communist organ-
izations as the Daily Worker, Icor, I.L.D.,
T.U.U.L., W.I.R., Workers' School, Coun-
cil of Working Class Women, and various
Communist Unions and Party Sections
contributed "Greetings," and among these
appeared the "Greeting" of "Labor
Temple, Edmund B. Chaff ee, Director, 242
East 14th St., New York City." Dr. G. F.
Beck is director of the School and radicals
Harry A. Overstreet, Will Durant, E. C.

LEAGUE FOR AMNESTY OF
POLITICAL PRISONERS

See also Anarchist- Communism; "New
York anarchist organization" (Lusk Re-
port) ; formed in 1917, after anarchists
Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman
were arrested, "To obtain the release of
all political offenders"; this organization
first popularized the title "political prison-
ers" now generally given by Reds to revo-
lutionaries who are jailed for seditious
activities; M. Eleanor Fitzgerald, said to
have been one of Berkman's "loves," was
sec. at that time.

The legal advisory board consisted of Isaac A.
Hourwich (head of the statistical dept. of the
Russian Soviet Bureau), Jessie Ashley, Theo.
Schroeder.Harry Weinberger (counsel for Emma
Goldman and Berkman) and Bolton Hall; gen.
com.: Leonard D. Abbott, Lillian Brown-Olf, Dr.

LEAGUE FOR INDEPENDENT

POLITICAL ACTION
L.IP.A.

Socialist in officership and platform.
Advocates: socialistic public ownership;
"free speech for minority groups" (radicals
call revolutionaries "minority groups") ;
repeal of the syndicalist and espionage
laws (against sedition) ; Negro social
equality; revision of the Constitution (!);



complete disarmament for America and
abolition of military training; that we
"safeguard conscientious objectors" and
admit aliens without any pledge of alle-
giance to serve the U.S. Govt. in time of
war; urged recognition of the bloody,
militaristic Soviet Government, which is
frankly bent on attaining Socialist world
power through causing world revolution.
It opposes deportation or exclusion of
alien "Reds" (American Labor Year
Book). Howard Y. Williams, exec, sec.;
John Dewey, chmn.; Paul H. Douglas and
Anna Clothier Hull, vice chairmen; Oswald
Garrison Villard, treas.; The Federated

LEAGUE FOR INDUSTRIAL
DEMOCRACY

Militant Socialist; headed by Robt.
Morss Lovett, active in Communist organ-
izations; founded by the revolutionary
Jack London in 1905 as the Intercollegiate
Socialist Society; changed its name in 1921,
after Socialism acquired a bad odor owing
to the jailing of many Socialists during the
war for seditious activities; heavily sub-
sidized by Garland Fund; spreads Social-
ist-Communist propaganda and literature
in colleges; operates chapters of its Inter-
collegiate Student Council in about 140
colleges, many under the guise of "Student
Councils," "Social Problems," "Radical" or
"Socialist" Clubs, etc.; in 1933 it claimed:
"Last year the speakers corps of the L.I.D.
reached almost every state in the union and
spoke to some 175,000 people. Norman
Thomas, Harry Laidler, Paul Blanshard,
Paul Porter and Karl Borders reached
about 60,000 students in 160 colleges and
universities in 40 states. Likewise they
spoke to about 100,000 people in non-
college meetings. In addition to these
speeches there were innumerable general
meetings, political meetings, and radio
broadcastings at which L. I. D. speakers
appeared"; very closely interlocked by
officership with the A.C.L.U.; prepares and
widely distributes thousands of Commu-
nist and Socialist leaflets, and pamphlets;
publishes four publications: "Disarm,"
"Unemployed," "Revolt" (now "Student



186



The Red Network



Outlook"), and "L.I.D."; issues a news
service and fortnightly Norman Thomas
editorial service to some 250 leading
papers throughout the United States; has
a national board of directors from twenty-
three States composed mostly of leaders
of over 300 other interlocked organizations ;
conducts student conferences on red revo-
lutionary subjects; drills students in rad-
icalism each summer at Camp Tamiment,
Pa.; formed the Federation of Unemployed
Workers Leagues of America all over the
U.S., under joint Communist, Socialist,
I.W.W., and Proletarian Party (Commu-
nist) control; sponsors the Emergency
Committee for Strikers' Relief (see), which
aids Communist-Socialist strikes; agitates:
for government ownership (and against
individual ownership) of all banking,
transportation, insurance, communication,
mining, agricultural and manufacturing
enterprises, forests, and oil reserves; for
socialization of land and other property,
and for social, unemployment, sickness,
old-age, and other State doles to the public ;
its slogan is "education towards a new
social order based on production for use
and not for profit" (of the individual),
which is of course the Socialist-Communist
tenet; joins the Communists in advocating
disarmament of the so-called "capitalist
state" and the arming of the proletarian
state and endeavors to convince students
and workers that this will bring about
"prevention of war," claiming the "capital-
ists" use the armed forces to fight for
markets, etc. not mentioning how the
Socialists use armed forces to rule the
workers after the system they advocate
has made them paupers and slaves (as in
Russia) ; it calls on youth to "help put
the War Department out of colleges by
stamping out the R.O.T.C." and claims it
enlisted 10,000 students in 1931, in 150
colleges, who signed petitions against mili-
tary training (however, J. B. Matthews,
prominent in Communist meetings and an
editor of its "Student Outlook," says he "is
not opposed to a war that will end cap-
italism") ; it boasts that "student mem-
bers of the L.I.D. have been in the thick
of the miners' struggles in Harlan County,
Ky., and in West Virginia" and in picketing
and making "investigations of labor con-
ditions," helping organization work of
unions, and other radical agitation; it
states of its literature: "These publications
are widely used by college classes and
labor, church and Y.M.CA. and Y.W.CA.
groups."
Many of these pamphlets were paid for



by the red Garland Fund. Pamphlets issued
in 1929 dealing with such subjects as Pub-
lic Ownership, Challenge of War, Dollars
and World Peace, Dollar Diplomacy, Im-
perialism, Socialism, Communism, Chris-
tianity and the Social Crisis, Roads to
Freedom, The State of Revolution, Soviet
Russia, The Profit Motive, Economic
Revolution, and Capitalist Control of the
Press, were prepared by such radicals as
Norman Thomas, Kirby Page, Scott Near-
ing (Communist) Bertrand Russell, Nor-
man Angell, Harry Elmer Barnes, Morris
Hillquit, Lewisohn, Stuart Chase, Harry

F. Ward, Harry W. Laidler, Lenin (Com-
munist), Robt. Dunn (Communist), Rex.

G. Tugwell, Upton Sinclair, Prof. John
Dewey, Jett Lauck (employed by Garland
Fund), John Fitch, Prof. J. E. Kirkpatrick,
Paul Blanshard, etc. (nearly all of whom
are listed in this "Who's Who").

Of these pamphlets, "Roads to Freedom"
by Harry Laidler (a "Syllabus for Dis-
cussion Groups") is possibly the most
revolutionary of all. It urges these groups
to use: The "Communist Manifesto" by
Marx, "Socialism Utopian and Scientific"
by Engels (Marx' collaborator), "State and
Revolution" and "Soviets at Work" by
Communist Lenin, "Dictatorship vs. Democ-
racy," "State Capitalism in Russia," "Rus-
sia After Ten Years," and "New Worlds
for Old" by Communist Trotsky. In
"Roads to Freedom," Laidler takes up the
study beginning with a section on "The
Need for Change," then "The Socialist
Society," "Utopian and Scientific Social-
ism," "Guild Socialism," "Cooperative
Democracy," and "Single Tax."

The subject of the 1931 student con-
ference (for the West) held at the Uni-
versity of Chicago was: "The Students in
World Revolution." The Dec. 1931
national conference held at Union Theo-
logical Seminary, New York City, was
entitled "Guiding the Revolution" and
topics discussed were: "America in a State
of Revolution," by Norman Thomas and
Harry Laidler; "College Students in a
Changing World," by Arnold Johnson (of
the Union Theological Seminary, an A.C.
L.U. representative jailed in Harlan, Ky.
for criminal syndicalism), and a representa-
tive of the communist John Reed Club ;
"What Tactics Should Students Use" by
Norman Thomas (who in 1933 was one of
the "militant" Socialist Party executive
committee members voting for immediate
cooperation with the Communist Party
see Socialist Party). A "Forum of the
Revolution" was held at Barnard College



Organizations, Etc.

with Norman Thomas and others discus-
sing plans for the supposedly inevitable
revolution, and such topics as Birth Con-
trol. The students were asked to live like
Communists in preparation for the general
upheaval to come.

The first page of the L.I.D. "Student
Outlook" for Feb. 1933 is headed "Wanted:
Students With Guts" and says in part: "it
is questionable whether the student who
hasn't guts enough to get out on his col-
lege campus and hawk the Student Out-
look will overcome his delicate scruples if
the time comes to face tear gas and machine
guns. The same sort of well-bred doubts
and inertia that afflict one when saddled
with the responsibility of escorting a
petition or putting up posters will arise
more urgently and subtly if the time should
come to refuse to go to war or to picket
the Chicago Tribune. . . . // you have
enlisted under the banners of Socialism
you've got to carry the job through"
A special announcement on this page states:
"With this issue 'Revolt' becomes the
'Student Outlook.' Students felt it was
more important to sell our magazine and
convince by its contents than to shout
'revolution' and have no one listen. Per-
sons ivho give us more than a glance will
not mistake our colors."

In a letter published in the Nation, Feb.
3, 1932, Paul Porter, L.I.D. organizer,
valiantly defended the L.I.D. from the
charge by a Nation correspondent (Mr.
Allen) that the L.I.D. conference "Guid-
ing the Revolution" was an "example of
liberal futility" and retorts: "Had Mr.
Allen attended the conference or secured
a published report of the proceedings . . .
he wculd have discovered (1) that the con-
ference was not a talk-fest of liberals and
(2) that the student participants were not
wholly innocent of experience in the class
struggle," and, after bragging about Arnold
Johnson's "five weeks' jail residence" and
other student activities "in the course of
which more than one has been beaten by
thugs" he says: "Unless Mr. Allen expects
a revolution to be suddenly produced as a
magician might whisk a rabbit from a silk
topper, he will recognize the necessity for
these humble beginnings. They are tasks
in which even college students and college
graduates and readers of the Nation may
share. Paul Porter."

our national income is being cut at least
$300,000,000 a month in wages alone as
the result of unemployment, Max Senior
in a political letter of the League for the
Organization of Progress suggests the use
of this sum in a revolving credit fund to
Soviet Russia, to be used in purchasing
American goods. . . . Senior believes that
the establishment of the loan fund would
relieve the tension now prevailing in Russia
due to the constant necessity of meeting
credit obligations and thus enable her 'to
market her surplus in a more orderly
fashion' "... etc. In a pamphlet entitled

LEAGUE OF STRUGGLE

FOR NEGRO RIGHTS
Official Communist Negro subsidiary
organization; organized originally in Chi-
cago, Oct. 1925, as the American Negro
Congress; changed name to its present one
at St. Louis Congress, Nov. 16, 1930; offi-
cial organ is the Weekly "Liberator,"
recently re-named "Harlem Liberator,"
which agitates race hatred and tries to
make Negroes believe that the Communists
are their only friends and that they must



unite with tthe Communists "against the
common enemy." For example, the Mar.
18, 1932, issue printed a huge caption "I
Ain't Sayin' Sir to Any More White Men"
over "A Story of Camp Hill," also much
revolutionary agitation and lurid horror
pictures of "abused" Negroes, and a poem
entitled "Stop Foolin' Wit' Pray," which
says in part:

"Your head 'tain no apple

For danglin' f'om a tree;

Your body no carcass

For barbecuin' on a spree.
"Stand on your feet,

Club gripped 'tween your hands;

Spill their blood too,

Show 'em yours is a man's."
