Transcript —————— ^■"■a" ■MM ^^^■■■■■■■■■■■■■B superintendent demanding that the boss be removed. ° ° ° When the whistle blew, none of the workers returned to work. • • " The activity of the shop club is not limited to the exploitation of minor grievances but is consciously integrated into current Communist international policy. During World War II these shop clubs were allegedly dissolved as a token gesture from our Soviet allies. Today Communist parties throughout the world are emphasizing, as their chief issue at the present time, the drive to immobilize the democratic countries through a peace offensive. Literature distributed is slanted to give the impression that the United States is controlled by warmongers while the Soviet Union is referred to as "peace-loving." The Party is quite flexible in its organizational forms. In some cases, industry clubs are formed including members from a given industry represented in a certain area, concentrating upon local factories and union activities. Community Clubs The bulk of the Party membership is to be found in the community clubs. These clubs serve a number of essential functions: (1) as a local political dynamo contact and sparking point to stimulate activity in local front organizations, unions, mass organizations, and neighborhoods generally; (2) as a support and aid to nearby shop clubs; (3) as a channel for intelligence information for officials at the Party center. These clubs usually operate under some protective cover. In determining the size of the community club, the Party is caught on the horns of a dilemma. On the one hand, if it would attract public attention and support, it must hold public meetings and encourage large attendance. On the other hand, it is compelled to resort to conspiratorial secrecy by the fact that its activities in the present period increasingly demand defiance of the law, outright disloyalty to the United States, and sacrificial loyalty to the Soviet Union, thus arousing the ire of the public and subjecting it more and more to stern punitive legal measures. The Party has definitely chosen the second alternative, especially since 1945, dividing the community clubs into small groups of about five. Public meetings are held under the auspices of some convenient front organization not under the Party. In his Communist Party — A Manual on Organization, J. Peters has indicated the type of issues to be exploited by street or town units, including unemployment relief, the high cost of living, sanitary conditions, sales tax, civil rights, police brutality, injunctions. He adds: Another important task of the Street and Town Unit is to help the Shop Units in its territory and near to it * • • for example, systematic sale of the Daily Worker in front of the factory; or systematic holding of shop-gate meetings; distribution of leaflets or shop papers from the outside. The Street Unit can also help the Shop Unit do open work around the factory, in the streetcar and bus stations. • • • The Street Unit supports actively and takes part in the strike struggles of the factory workers, and also mobilizes the neighborhood for support, furnishing reserves for the picket lines, conducting demonstrations, collecting strike relief, etc. Again by way of illustration, we cite an article in Contact for September, 1947, by Oleta Yates, chairman of the San Francisco County of the Communist Party: Clubs must think in terms of moving people —ten, twenty, one hundred or five hundred — in protest delegations, picket lines, demonstrations or other forms of struggle. The Daily Worker of April 26, 1950, cited, as an emula- tory example for its Communist readers, the fact that Page 48 "twenty men and women were found guilty of 'disorderly conduct' last week on a charge that grew out of a demonstration at the 44 Stanton St. Welfare Department center three weeks ago." A representative list of Communist community clubs in the city of New York as shown in the Daily Worker in the middle 1940's follows: Bedford Club Begun Club (Mt.
