 This refers to No. 1 of the journal Kommunist.—Ed.
 This refers to: 1) Paul Golay’s pamphlet Le Socialisme qui meurt et le Socialisme qui doit rena&ihat;tre; 2) U. Sinclair’s article “A Manifesto Against It” in the pamphlet Socialism and War by Upton Sinclair and Richard Blatchford, and 3) the journal Die Internationale published by the German Left Social-Democrats in April 1915.
 The nickname “Japanese” was applied to G. L. Pyatakov and Yevgenia Bosh, who emigrated to America via Japan. Here the reference is to their departure for Norway.
