This article is a later and expanded version on Archie Green's presentation
in April 1988 at the University of Missouri for the 3rd Annual Peter Tamony
Memorial Lecture on American Language.  The title he used here was "'Fink':
The Labor Connection" and was part of a panel on labor lore and language.
