The "Socialise Call 1 ' d< voted less than a column to its convention announcement- and the mention of a couple of likely presidential nominees. Inside thr- paper was a full pege discussion of what the Socialist party is tip against, which is plenty. And what it should do, which is a matter of dispute. Tne Socialist party is up against was to the fact that most of its voters have deserted it. The desertion began in 1936. Socialist presidential candidate Eugene- V. Debs polled .nearly 1 million of abouc 15 million votes cast in 1920. Socialist candidate Norman Thomas got-; nearly 900,000 votes in 3932 of 39.S million cast. Economic depression is body pullir.g food for Socialists. Franklin D. Rooseveit's New Deal-Democratic coalition sapped the Socialist party's strength. The Socialist vote fell to little more then 80,000 in 1944; was a mere 139,999 in 1948. Hundreds of thousands of Socialist votes were not being cast or they had been absorbed into the coalition created by FDR and led in 19IS by President Truman. Socialists are disputing what to do about that. The full page discussion in the "Socialist Call" was an argument for getting out of the presidential candidate business altogether. The nomination of a. So- set out just more than 50 years ago to kidnap a political party and, thereafter, to take over government in good time British Socialists did just that. The party they took over was the Indcpon- cer.t Labor party, although that one was not thoir first choice.

Specifically tagged for penetration were: Liberal party (New York), ''Americans for Democratic Action, CIO Political'Action committee, AFL labor's Lmgue for Political Education. The slump in the total Socialist poll suggreats that many thousands roters already have in those directions.
