PAGE TWO Socialist Party Seeks To Change its Course; Thomas Is Rebuked DETROIT, June 5. (#)—A more* militant Socialist Party may emerge from decisions made at its 195i convention here. The delegates to Ihc meeting which ended Sunday, picked a nev executive committee pledged to implementing the Socialist cause. In so doing, they repudiated the course advocated by Norman Thomas, their six-time candidate for president, He wished to keep the party primarily an educational or- granlzatlon at this time. The more active way was sup ported by Darlington Hoopcs, newly re-elected national chairman. Board Is Named Hoopes and eight of his supporters were named to the 12-man cx- pcutlve board. Thomas and two of his followers were picked a.s minority members. Platform ]s Approved The Socialist platform, as approved by the delegates, called for world disarmament and a stronger United Nations. They urged a 'bold appeal to all governments and peoples" for disarmament. "Simply making the appeal," the Socialist declared, "is-Ul recapture an initiative for peace which the United States Is losing with dangerous rapidity." The plea for disarmament, the platform said, should be accompanied by a pledge to invest a large part of the billions saved in arms for the improvement of agriculture and industry throughout the world. "End Profit System" "The most effective way to fight communism," It continued, "is to end the profit system, to abolish poverty, to banish fear of war, and to keep and extend our democratic freedoms." Although the party broke away from Thomas' control, the delegates adopted a resolution reaffirming "our faith In Norman Thomas as spokesman for American Socialists."
