Accompanied by a single-page leaflet issued a week later. that effectively continued the controversy. The reason given for the suspension was that the IWW appeared on the Attorney General's list: "membership in or affiliation with a designated organization is one factor to be considered by the department and agencies of the Federal government in connection with the employment or retention in employment of individuals in Federal service." Most significant is that this is one of the first activities of the nascent Surrealist Group in Chicago.
