Transcript HOW TO ORGANIZE INDUSTRIALLY AND BECOME AN EFFICIENT, FIGHTING MEMBER IN THE ONE GREAT UNION KNOWLEDGE IS POWER! Workers remain unorganized or disorganized because they are ignorant—because they do not know the strength of their class when organized along Socialist industrial lines. Education through lectures and literature must be disseminated amongst the workers. This necessitates the expenditure of money and time, elements which must be furnished by the class-conscious workers themselves. In consequence, effective organization, which can only result from systematic education, demands that every worker organize as an active participant in the work and as a regular contributor to this fund—BY BECOMING A MEMBER OF THE W. I. I. U. Join the union of your class; do not delay or wait for "the masses" to guide you; become a member today. If there is no Local Union in your industry or locality, join as a member at large until such a Local is organized—but join! Fill out a membership application, enclose with One Dollar to cover initiation fee and dues, and forward to General Headquarters. However, if a nucleus for a Local exists, send for a charter application blank and circulate it amongst your shop- mates for signatures. Every worker signing is to be taxed One Dollar; the money thus collected to be forwarded with charter application, which must contain more than ten signatures, to General Headquarters to pay for charter, books, supplies, etc. Upon proper approval of application, the necessary organization material including charter will be forwarded, and the Local Industrial Union, after electing its officers as required by the Constitution, is then formally organized and ready to engage in active work. Any additional information and literature will be cheerfully supplied by the undersigned. Again! Don't be a slacker in the class war; don't shirk the duties imposed upon the proletariat by historic development; be one of the real pioneers, one of the class-conscious militants, battling to capture the industries for Industrial Democracy. Join the W. I, I. U.l H RICHTER, Gen. Sec.-Treas., P. O. Box 651, Detroit, Mich.
