Communist Party Leader Looks for Unity of Liberals

Big Business, liberal organizations, and reactionary U. S. domestic and foreign policy all came in for a verbal barrage last night in Emerson D when Stanley Gates, legislative chairman and National Veterans' Director of the Communist Party, U. S. A., elaborated on his party's positions before the John Reed Society.

On the question of the Communist's position in today's liberal movements, he issued a call for all progressive groups to work together. "A group like AVC can never be worthwhile as long as it is a debating ground on Communism," he added later. "It does not hurt Communists but does harm the progressive movement."

Terming American Big Business "the real menace to peace in the world today," Gates characterized the foreign politics of the United States today as "reactionary attempts to keep it in supremacy."

In a question period after his talk Gates affirmed that the Communist policies in different countries generally coincide but explained this by saying that Communism is a scientific theory and a scientific approach will give the same answers to everyone who applies it.
