Gus Hall Speaks About Marxism To Polite Audience at Brandeis

Speaking at Brandeis last night, Gus Hall, reportedly secretary of the American Communist Party, predicted that the United States would eventually make a peaceful transition to socialism and then communism. The 400 Brandeis students gave Hall a respectful, and at times even warm, hearing. Dealing mostly with Marxist theory rather than current Communist practices, Hall said it "makes no sense to talk about 'exporting revolutions'--they have to come--and will inevitably come--from the experience of a people."
