Transcript ety of a leaflet attacking the United States Government as, let us say, a "periodical dictatorship," on the ground that under its constitution more power is vested in the president than in any prime minister of Europe, and that he may use this power without any check for four years, even though, during two of these years at least, the people of the United States in a general election may have repudiated his policies at the polls. Mr. French and Dr. Levermore would probably call such a pamphlet anti-American propaganda. And such it would be. CONCILIATION BY ABUSE The American Association for International Conciliation has joined the ranks of eminent and unscrupulous anti-Russian propagandists. The monthly magazine of this organization of the February 1920 issue in pamphlet form is entitled "Some Bolshevist Portraits." It contains a series of brief biographical sketches of prominent Soviet officials that descends in places to the worst kind of personal slander. The apparent object of the pamphlet is to arouse hatred of the Soviet Government in the United States by painting its leaders in the worst possible colors. How such a piece of anti-Russian propaganda can make for "international conciliation" it is difficult to understand. The following are some illustrations taken at random from the pamphlet: Of the twenty or thirty commissaries or leaders who provide the central machinery of the Bolshevist movement not Jess than sevenfcy- five per cent, are Jews. Karachan is an Armenian. .Peters, the head of the Moscow Extraordinary Commission, and Vatseitis, the Commander-in-Chief, are Letts. Only Lenin, Bucharin, Petrovsky, Tchit- cherin, Lunacharsky, and Krilenko are Russians. Of these Lenin is a law unto himself, Bucharin is an independent with independent views, and an independent attitude inside the party, Krilenko is a degenerate, while Tchitcherin and Lunacharsky are to be regarded rather as sentimental and somewhat feeble-minded visionaries than as active revolutionaries, (p. 56.) A type very different from any of the preceding is represented by Lunacharsky. Tall, with sligthly drooping shoulders, silky beard and mustache, and pince-nez, he is a man of mild appearance, mild manners, and soft speech. He radiates mildness and softness, and he dabbles in Bolshevism as he dabbles in art. He is essentially the amiable visionary, the Bolshevist crank, the Bolshevist educationist. While no one could possibly be afraid of Lunacharsky as a revolutionary force, there is no doubt that this revolutionary idealist is of considerable service to the Bolshevists as a propaganda agent. He is at the head of the Bolshevist Department of Education, and in this position he has been responsible 45
