Norman Thomas Long a Political
Fiaurehead For Socialist Party
Norman Thomas, who will speak
on "The Price of Lasting Peace”
next Tuesday in McArthur court,
has had his finger in political hap
penings since the days he delivered
Warren C. Harding’s Ohio news
paper, the Daily Star.
Though never victorious in his
own electioneering, Thomas and the
socialists have had many of their
policies adopted and put into legis
lation due to their campaigning.
In 1932 Thomas was defeated in
the presidential election by Frank
lin Roosevelt. But in the following
years of the depression Roosevelt
incorporated many socialistic prin
ciples in his New Deal.
This borrowing was especially
noticeable concerning Thomas’s
program for relievifig unemploy
ment. The public works program,
unemployment insurance as a part
of a general scheme of social in
surance against old age and sick
ness, the shortening of the work
week, and social security were all
planks in the Thomas, Socialist,
platform of 1932 and preceding
years. Many liberals and radicals

the Socialist party were enlisted by
the New Deal.
Whether Roosevelt or Landon
won the 1936 presidential election
was a matter of indifference to
Thomas, Who was, as usual, the So
cialist candidate.
“The drift in either case is to
ward war and fascism,” he told the
public in relation to both the major
candidates. “The issue this year is
between socialism and capitalism.”
The American people chose capi
talism and Roosevelt, but Thomas,
always the pacifist, was still warn

for peace in 1940. He went on rec

the journalism building. All writ

military conscription.
After his defeat in 1944, Thomas
predicted a new third party would
emerge to elect a president. In this
the Socialist party would have an
important, “even indispensable role
as an educational factor.”
His forecasts of the third party
and his prediction of a third world
war as a result of Roosevelt's poli
cies abroad, have particular signifi
cance today.
Thomas will be introduced next
Tuesday by R. D. Clark associate
professor of speech and drama.
