Wallace's 3rd party went to work Tuesday on a platform which followers are confident will take votes away from both the republicans and democrats in November. The 74-member platform committee, headed by one-time new dealer Rexford Guy Tugwell, met in closed session in Philadelphia to talk over the new party's policies. Wednesday and Thursday the group will hold open hearings on the platform. Convention sessions get under way Friday. With the Wallace-Glen Taylor ticket settled in advance, the platform will be the chief concern of the 2,500 delegates who^ are expected to attend the 3-day convention. Besides Tugwell, other prominent committee members who will have a hand in Xvriting the,platform, include former CIO Counsel Lee Pressman, Author Louis Adamlc, Union Leaders Harry Bridges and Julius Emspak, and former Assitant Attorney General O. John Rogge. The Wallace forces are claiming upwards of 10,000,000 votes in the fall elections. Neutral poltical observers estimate the new party's strength between 2,000,000 and 3,000,000, but concede that the Wallaceites may hold the balance of power in key states like New York and California.
