It is admitted by all that the leaders of the Bolsheviks have made the most effective use of propaganda in the history of psychology. They have anticipated the moral and mental reactions of laboring and farming classes General Denikine's government is making an attempt to counteract the mis-education of the Reds by a very active bureau of propaganda contra Bolshevism. This photograph depicts one of the most ambitious attempts of the Denikine bureau of propaganda. It is a picture 20x20 feet at the head of the main square of Kharkof. Over the rampart of the castle of Bolshevism which significantly includes the spires of synagogues, is climbing clovenfooted, scarlet Trotsky. In the dungeon are piles of skulls, the victims of his evil genius. To the left rides the grinning mercenary of the Bolshevik army. At the lower right hand corner is a Russian peasant in his working shirt, being questioned by an intellectual, whose eye-glasses are ostentatious. Eager to get at the bound peasant is a group of chinese torturers, who, as a matter of fact, are attached to the "extraordinary councils" of the chief cities. Wild-eyed and curious, throngs study this poster by the hour
