A small cash settlement was eventually awarded for my care.  Then Congress extended the draft to include forty­five­year­olds.  The doctors who treated him strongly urged him to get out of the city because it was so full of pollution and poison that he was in constant danger of infections that could cause loss of his legs or even prove fatal.  Although my father's sympathies were with the left wing, his health prevented him from actively supporting the new Party.  In fact, my father was completely fed up with the "old Socialists" because of their endless talk without deeds.

These classes kept me quite busy outside of my teaching duties.  Fred Walker arranged everything, including a stop at a farm near Woodland, Washington, run by some Finns, to whom he was related by marriage, where we were treated to sauna baths and banquetlike meals both going to Seattle and returning to Portland. " Those words were never used in normal school or when teaching.  Later I learned that my first impressions about those disagreements were accurate and that there were very real, severe conflicts among those leaders; some of this was what was later identified as factionalism—personal disagreements not based on principle.

They maintained that no one should trust an agreement with the Communist party.  The "United Front from Below" was paramount.  They were public organizations, but Page 24 they were mainly controlled by Party leaders as our "transmission" belts.  At that time, when there were indications the industrial union movement would begin, the TUUL ended its attempt at separate organization and dissolved.  That was the usual way in which the personal integrity of a prominent leader was undermined before he was expelled and politically destroyed.
