Transcript The red card is necessary for admission; but once in, the card may become as black" as pitch, and membership is not forfeited. From this central defect flow all the other evils. Even if the Party were to yank out of its own midst every unworthy member, such action would -not rid the Association of them; on the contrary, the Party might even be "held up" by such people, out of fear that, if it expels them and they are already members of the Association, they would then seek there to wreak vengeance, by turning the paper against the Party. More closely connected with that evil, than might seem at first blush, is this other, which is just now illustrated in the Association: An opposition element (that not only is a mere minority of the Party membership in this locality, as is conclusively shown by the recent vote on national officers, but that represents a pitiable minority of the Party at large, as happens in this instance) may have (as in this instance) the majority in the Association; and, due to defective safeguards on the part of the Party in the organization of the Association, that minority, held under control within the Party, can effect, in the Association, a coup de main, capture the paper and thus seek to lord things over the Party. And that is just what is happening. And when it is considered that this Party minority, but Association majority, is conspicuously composed (apart from the outright hostile and non-Party member contingent, and a few downright vicious individuals) of an element among whom not one active and experienced Party worker is to be found, but mainly old, tired-out Party members, tired-out and disheartened through past efforts and the failures that were inevitable, due to their unfamiliarity with the country, its ways, its language, and its people—when all this is considered, then there appears glaringly both the full significance of recent occurrences, and the preposterousness of the situation. Then also will be understood the attitude of Section Greater New York, as reported elsewhere in this issue. The Party is in no humor to be trifled with. All of which should serve as signposts for guidance in framing the organization that will have to be entrusted, at least technically, with the publication of the now all the more urgently needed DAILY PEOPLE. 16
