If the major parties give the ]ieo- .ple no choice except "reactionary • capitalism," a third party mi\y be 'necessary in 1948. he said. ' "If the Democratic Party is a war ; party, if my party continues to :U• tack civil liberties, if both parties •stand for high prices nnd depres- [sion—then the people must have a .new party of liberty and peace," he declared. "The people must have n 'choice." ' Wallace spoke from the same ros- 'trum where a year ft&o he denounc- •ed the administration's "get tough '.with Russia" policy.
