Transcript most important points in its tactical program. If the claim were honest that the issue was not one of the Party's tactics; if the claim were honest that the issue did not involve the violation of the Association's constitution, and thereby imply disloyalty to the Party, this resolution would have been adopted, at least to save appearances. But IT WAS DEFEATED BY A VOTE OF 54 AGAINST 30 REFUSING TO CONSIDER IT. All false pretense was scraped off. There is a third incident that took place on that evening and that deserves mention in this connection as indicating the trend of events. About a year ago, one Rudolph Modest was tried for injuring the interests of the Association. His guilt was manifest; his expulsion was demanded ; to get rid of the fellow was a desirable thing to the Party. The fellow admitted having joined a hostile political party. For the Party to rid an Association, that published Party organs, of an avowed Party enemy was the evident duty of every ^Party member in the Association. But the motion to expel Modest failed of the constitutional majority. One of the members of the Association, Leib by name, who voted against the expulsion of Modest, and who is a member of the Party, was censured for his conduct by his Assembly District. He protested emphatically against such action, his principal ground being that he was not accountable to the Party for his conduct in the Association. This was thought a queer attitude. On the 23 rd of last month the attitude lost its queerness and sprang forth in its serious significance. Careful followers of Party affairs will not have missed the report of the session of February 25 of the General Committee of Section Greater New York, published in The People of last March 5. Resolutions were there introduced by Comrade Vogt, in which the Volkszeitung was condemned for first mutilating the reasons given in the Committee why certain candidates, then running for national offices, were unworthy of support, and then publishing letters by these same candidates calling upon Vogt to state the reasons, which the paper itself had suppressed and mutilated. The resolutions were adopted. Now, then, the identical Leib, who protested against being called to account by the Party for his actions in the Association, brought, on that evening of March 23, charges against Vogt demanding his expulsion for his action in the Party! Thus a member of the Association, who is a member of the Party, is not responsible to the Party for his acts in the Association; but a member of the Party, who is a member of the Association, IS responsible to the Association for his acts in the Party. IN OTHER WORDS, THE ASSOCIATION IS THE SUPERIOR, THE S. L. P. THE INFERIOR BODY! These three successive incidents— the vote justifying the Volkszeit- ung's articles to the orchestration of denunciations of the Party; next, the vote rejecting the constitutional clause of loyalty to the Party; and, finally, the action of Leib countenanced by the Association, are three culminating gradations. When to them is added the circumstance that at no time did Schlueter, the editor 14
