There was a publication by the far, far left in Minneapolis in the 30s (lasted less than a year) for which FLW wrote an article. While it was mentioned in a book about Mpls. which Geiger owned, I cannot recall the name of the publication, nor was I ever successful in finding any reference to it at the Mpls Public Library. It does not appear in "FLW Collected Writings."
