Birthday Greetings to William "Red" Davis

In December 1995 the Communist Party USA newspaper Peoples Weekly World published a page of 75th birthday greetings to William (Red) Davis - "Lifelong working class fighter and Communist"

In the fight for the unity and integrity of the Party in St. Louis, Missouri, in the post-war years, "Red" has been a rock of confidence and commitment to building the Communist Party.

Greetings were sent from E. E. W. Clay of Missouri[2].

Friends of the Peoples Weekly World

The Communist Party USA's Peoples Weekly World 1997 May Day Supplement listed several St. Louis Friends of the Peoples Weekly World. they were Lew Moye, Melanie Shouse, Jay Ozier, Zenobia Thompson, E. E. W. Clay, Luther Mitchell, Susan Davis, Jim Wilkerson, John Pappademos, Nafisa Kabir, William (Red) Davis.

In answer to "Moving towards a leadership criteria"

In 2010, E.E.W. Clay submitted a paper as part of the discussion leading up to the Communist Party USA's 29th National Convention May 21-23, 2010. [3]

In this whole piece, "Moving toward a leadership criteria", there is no clear reference to our basis of thought and action as communists: class struggle and our relationship(s) with workers, and therefore with ourselves.
Every worker is important because each is a potential recruiter for more workers, or a "crowd" of workers conditioned by a vast and awful set of historical production relations of class struggle. The CPUSA has a long established Constitutional and political policy of developing individuals and worker "crowds" within the club structure. Unfortunately, this structure has disappeared in the MO/KAN district of the CPUSA. Because of this, the whole basis and Party Constitutionality of our operation may be in question.
