Socialist Labor Party Wages Class Struggle
By LEONARD GREENBAUM
Daily Managing Editor
40,000 American voters going to
the polls this November will cast
their vote for a revolutionary party
advocating the complete overthrow
of the political state and capital-
However, the revolution of the
Socialist Labor Party--if and
when it comes-will be a peaceful
one, by ballot as prescribed in the
Conrstitution of the United States.
* * *
THE SOCIALIST Labor Party,
founded in 1890 by Columbia Uni-
versity Professor Daniel De Leon,
insists that peaceful, law abiding,
revolution is possible.
In place of capitalism, the So-
cialist Labor Party wants a society
based on collective ownership of
the land and all the instruments
of production, with the manage-
ment of industry completely in the
hands of the workers.
Until the revolution by ballot
comes, the party mission is to agi-
tate and educate and to keep the
issues before the people so that
when they decide they do want
Socialism, they will be able to vote
* * *
THE PARTY, which has been
running candidates for president
and vice president since 1892, will
be active this year in more than
half of the 48 states.
Nominated for president is
Eric Hass, a 47 year old Nebras-
kan who edits the party's news-
paper, The Weekly People.
Vice presidential candidate is
Stephen Emery of New Jersey. The
45 year old Emery; who works as
a subway train dispatcher in New
York City, was the veep candidate
In Michigan, the SLP will pre-
sent a full, state ballot with candi-
dates for United States Senator,
Governor, Lt. Governor, Secretary

operated" and accept capitalism
as a finality.
The SLP attacked the Taft-
Hartley Law and claimed that the
American worker is being reduced
to the status of an unresisting in-
The SLP also condemns theo-
cracy and militarism.
Reforms or compromise are rul-
ed out by the SLP, which holds
that "every reform granted by
decadent capitalism is a concealed
measure of reaction."
Despite its low following, the
SLP carries on a full time infor-
mation program through its week-
ly paper and through the annual
distribution of over two million
pamphlets on current topics.
Most of the party's standard
literature was written by found-
er De Leon whose centennial is
being celebrated this year.
But until it can celebrate the
workingclassrevolution, the So-
cialist Labor Party, which claims
no affiliation with the Socialist
Party, the Communist Party, the
American Labor Party or any oth-
er group, will continue its lonely
but patient efforts.

Eric Hass Stephen Emery
of State, Auditor General and At-
torney General. The candidates
will be chosen at the state conven-
tion August 5th in Detroit.
The SLP drew 1500 votes from
Michigan and 40,000 from the en-
tire nation in the 1948 election.
IN ITS 1952 platform, adopted
at the national convention, May
4, the SLP warned that capitalist
rivalry for world trade is leading
to World War III.
All the ills of society, accord-
ing to the SLP, can be traced to
the class division of society un-
der capitalism which breeds war,
fascism, exploitation and pov-
The party platform called the
Korean war senseless to all but
the capitalists and the Russian
The Communists are as much an
enemy of the SLP as the capital-
THEaSLP "repudiates the kind
of bureaucratic despotism masque-
rading as "Marxist" in Soviet Rus-
sia, and the reform outfits such
as the British Labor Party, falsely
claiming to 'Socialist.'"
British socialism, the SLP
claims, is merely a scheme to
save British capitalism.
Also attacked in the party plat-
form are the CIO and the AF of L,
