Britain's Socialist Regime
Faces Fight For Re-Election

a itormy showdown In the next

wishes to continue the regime or
return to the old system of free
enterprise on which the great

The Labor (Socialist) govern

July of '45 would have a normal
life of five' years-thai is until
next summer. However. Eng
land'! economic crisis has reach

anybody's guess whether it will
get better or worse. This con

the problem of whether to hang
on until the end of their term
In hope of improvement-or to
force an early election on the
chance that things are better
now than they will be later.

slrikes me, on the outcome of
the British-Canadian American
conference opening In Washing
ton to seek a solution of John
Bull's predicament. If relief can
be devised, the socialist political
chances might be improved.
England's socialist leaders are
under no delusions about the po
litical dangers ahead. Both Sir
William Lawther, president of
the great British Trades Union
congress, and James Griffiths,
chairman of the Labor party,
warned the annual conference of
the T. V. C. Monday that Social
ism is facing a tough fight.
This blunt warning Is aimed at
wildcat strikes which have been
complicating the economic cri
sis. Both leaders declared labor
might lose the next general el
ection if It didn't stay on the
job. Sir William asserted t h a t
some work stoppages have been
Instigated by Communists.
So Britain's socialist leaders
are worried- -and for good rea
son. Things haven't worked out
as they anticipated when they
took office. Economic difficulties
which they inherited as the re
sult of the war, have gone from
bad to worse.
Inevitably there has arisen the
searching question of whether
the situation has worsened be
cause of socialist policies or whe
ther the same misfortune would
have dogged the Conservatives
if they had been continued i n
power. That's a question which
the voters most certainly will
want answered before they go to
The burden of proof will rest
with the Socialists, and it won't

They can claim with perfect
right that they inherited serious
economic difficulties. Few will
