Assails communists a in my judgment a he wrote a the convention will not command the support of the Farmers the workers or other progressives because those who have had charge of the arrangement for this convention have committed the fatal error of making the communists an integral part of their organization. The communists have admittedly entered into this political movement not for the purpose of curing by Means of the ballot the evils which afflict the american people but Only to Divide and confuse the progressive movement and create a condition of chaos favourable to their ultimate Aims. Their real purpose is to establish by revolutionary action a dictatorship of the proletariat which is absolutely repugnant u democratic ideals and to All american in his letter senator la Follette quoted an official statement of the Central legislative committee of the workers party of America and a cablegram from the communists International at Moscow respecting plans for the St. Paul convention which he declared a show clearly that they Are seeking to use the Farmer labor party of Minnesota and other progressive organizations who have Lent their names to this convention As a Means of advancing their own will Continuo Light a i have devoted Many years of my life to an Effort to solve the problems which confront the american people by the ballot and not by Force a wrote the Wisconsin senator. A i believe that the people through the ballot can completely control their government in every Branch and compel it to serve them effectively. I have fought steadfastly to achieve this end and t shall not abandon this fight As Long As i May live. I believe therefore that All progressives should refuse 1 a a participate in any movement which makes common cause with any communist senator la Follette a letter closed with his declaration respecting the Republican and democratic conventions which was acknowledged by his close friends As an announcement of his candidacy should the action and platform of the two major parties fail to accomplish the changes he regards a necessary.
