The Yankees were not able
to make wage-slaves
out of the Indians.
The Yankees used to say:
8775 A good Indian
is a dead Indian. 8776

who went to California
succeeded in making willing workers

The Catholics of California
have not found the way
to do for the Catholic unemployed

In the meantime

are looking for a panacea
at the expense
of the taxpayers.

To begin with, Emerson asserts that "the poet is representative," standing "among partial men for the complete man," apprising us "not of his wealth, but of the commonwealth."

to turn out Masters of Agitation.

that you, our Master Catholic Agitator,
start in St. Louis University
a School of Catholic Agitation
for the popularization of Catholic Action.
Yours for Catholic Action,
For The Catholic Worker,
