When asked then if she was still a Red sympathizer, she answered: *'I wouldn't say that. I certainly am not a reactionary. I consider myself a progressive." She also commented at the time: "I say I quit the party, but .1 have a notion it's possible they expelled me as a weak sister . . . Maybe my convictions weren't so strong.
