FRIDAY, TUNE 2, 1050 BLYTnEVTLLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS U.S. Needs Socialism/ Norman Thomas Claims At Party Convention United States needs socialism^ Nor-*man Thomas said today, f jjjfceace, plenty, freedom and the "aternlty of free men can never exist under the supremacy of king private profit." The tall, while-haired socialist leader who carried his party's banner in many Presidential elections condemned Democratic administration and Republican opposition alike in a prepared address opening his party's 21th national convention here. "What democratic socialism of- PAGE FTVH WILSON NEWS By Mrs. B. F. Boyles fers to America," he said, "is a philosophy and a set of Ideals, a standard of ethics without which our marvelous machinery will never be operated for human values." President, Truman's "Fair Deal" program, Thonins said, "offers hope io the masses of people" but is dangerous "not because he has left the old capitalist moorings but because. he rejects the socialist compass to guide liMn." "Socialism vs. Liberty" The Republican claim that the tiiy Issue today is "socialism versus liberty" Thomas dismissed as "ill- informed." "Senator Taft's hatred of socialism never protected him from being dubbed a Socialist- bv real es- interests \vhen he fought for I subsidy to housing," Thomas declared. He charged both parties had failed to give any "hold, imaginative leaders*'!!) for world peace." The Socialist leader said Truman "heads a warfare rather than a welfare state" with a budget that is "six to eight per cent welfare and 75 per cent warfare." Objectives Outlined These, Thomas said, are the main objections to the administration program: 1—The President "delivers effective speeches on campaign trips and accomplishes practically nothing in t , ve fluty Washington." Here Thomas placed a major share of the blame on "the Irresponsibility of our political par- ly system." ' 2—There Is a "low standard of administrative honor and competence in Washington. New York City and scores of other cities and states under Democratic administration." 3—Truman's specific welfare proposals "are at least headed In the right direction" but are "uncoorOin-- ated." The program lacks the philosophy tliat "the supreme loyalty of our time be given to the spirit of cooperation." Turning to the question of Socialist Great Britain, Thomas ridiculed the argument that this coun- ^try's relative prosperity compared to ^England proves that capitalism is superior to socialism. "Capitalism Fallen" "The thing that failed in Britain and all of Europe was capitalism, not socialism — the same sort of capitalism that we have had in America," Thomas said, adding: "The Socialist doctor was called to save the British patient very late. He hasn't worked a miracle, but, by and large, he's done a good job." On the other hand, Thomas as- fierted, "such prosperity as we have here Is due In large part to the magnitude of government expenditures on an arms economy in no way an expression of free enterprise." "Indefinitely continued, that arms economy will lead to bankruptcy if it does not first lead to war," Thomas said. Volcano Erupts In Hawaii After 18 Months Calm HONOLULU, June 2.
