Budenz stated that he knew that Reuther made no such attempt, because he, Budenz, had been sent to Detroit by the Politburo to persuade Reuther to join the Red "top faction" in the UAW and Reuther had refused to do so. Budenz stated that ~ester was provoking the recollection that Reuther had gone as a very young man to Soviet Russia, had worked in its auto factories, and originally had not been hostile to the Soviet regime. 61-330-530 (131' According to a Detroit teletype dated 6/10/41, Walter Reuther, was reportedly siding with Frankensteen and Phillip Murray and was holding caucuses in the Detroit area for the purpose of purging the communists from the UAW-CIO. 98-3129-53X3 ( 64-f Correlator' s Note: The above information c·o ncerned the strike at the North A~erican Aviation Company, Inglewood, California (98- 312g)'.

They have trans~ o ~e : the Soviet Unicn into one of the Gre•test industrial nationB in t he world • . They t~ve l&id the economi c rounda t ion for Socialise, for a classless society. · I! 7ou could be with us !or just one day in our ahop you ~uld • realize the significance o! the Soviet Union. To be with us in our !&ctory Red Corner at a •hop ~eeting and watch the workers as they offer suceestions and constructive criticism or production in the ahop. Bere are no bosses with power to drive !ear into the he~rts or the workers. No one to drive them to mad •peed-ups. Here the workers &rP. in control. Even the ahop superintendent has n~ more right in these meetings than any other worker. I have witnessed aany times already when the Superintendent spoke too long, the workers in the hall decided that had already consumed enough time and the noor was given to the lathe hand who told or his problems, and o!!ered hie suggestions. Try and . imagine tha. t at Fords or Briggs. fhia is what the outside world calla the "Ruthless Dictatorship 1n Runi&." Let ae aay that in all the countries we have tbu.e !ar been in,. we have never seen such genuine proletarian democracy. It is unpolished &nd crude, rough and rude, but workers democracy in every respect. The workers in England have more culture and polish when they apeak at their meetings but after all- they have no power, they·are still but the tools of an owning class. Bere the workers are unpolished and rude, but are genuinely class conaciouzs and they have powers. In our factory, which ia t.he la.rgc~t and most modern in Europe (and we have aeen them all) there are no pictures or Ford or Rockefeller, Roosevelta, or Mellon, Jo such parasites, but rather huge pictures or Lenin and St.Uin etc, gr.,et the workers 1 ey-es on ev«:lry 1ide. Red bLnnera with alogans o! -.orkers of the World United" are draped across the craneways. little red !l&gs !ly !rom the tops of pressezs, drills, lathe kellera etc. )len and woman WJrk side by . ~idethe women with their red cloth about their heads, the men with their fur eaps . •e work here seven houra per day, !iva days a week (our week here is aix days long). At noon we all eat in a larg~ factory restaurant where wholezsome plain food is zserved. J. workers 1 ban furnishes IIUsic to u.a !rom an adjoining rooz:1. lor the remainder of t he one-hour lunch period we adjourn to the Red Corner Recreational roo~ where we play games, rea.d papers or technical books or • rely ait L~d smoke or chat. Such & !ine apirit or cocradeship we have never betore witnessed 1n our lite. No distinctions exi~ between Supe~in ­ "tendents, lea.de!"::; and ·ordinary workers.
