In the U.S., Tin Pan Alley was crowding Communism's anthem, The Internationale. Last week, Manhattan's Communist Daily Worker printed words and music of a catchy new song which "can be sung with great effect by large numbers of people." The composers: Hans Leo Hassler and Johann Sebastian Bach. The lyricist: Balladeer Tom Glazer, onetime baritone of the "Priority Ramblers," the United Federal Workers Union's singing team. Sample:
Because all men are brothers,
Wherever men may be.
No Fascist shall defeat us,
No nation strike us down.
All men who toil shall greet us
The whole wide world around. ...
The union shall unite...
