ABSTRACT
This article focuses on Austrian Communists. Of all the Communist parties, both in the East and West, none is in such a peculiar and paradoxical position as the Austrian. It has been unable to obtain more than a steady five percent of the total vote in a country whose unemployment problem among its youth is phenomenal. So inept have Communist efforts become that during the last elections they could find no better campaign issue than increased pensions for the aged. Victor Matejka is as fine an illustration of the paradoxical nature of Austrian Communists as one is likely to find.
