Only a few weeks remain before the August 3rd primary in Michigan. All parties with the exception of the Democratic and Republican, are being forced to acquire at least 5000 votes in order to remain on the ballot. The Communist Labor Party is one of these whose position on the ballot depends on the progressive people of Michigan.

Once the party of the proletariat retains its position on the ballot, then the struggle to win the November election begins. The candidate we are running is General Baker, leader of the working class. A Negro auto worker, who has been fighting for working people for 10 years, General Baker pledges himself to continue this struggle on the floor of the state legislature. Whereas most of the legislators of this country are paid for and supported by the capitalists, General Baker’s constituency is the working class. He receives no money from the big time industrialists or bankers. His only support comes from progressive people throughout Michigan, in fact throughout the USNA.

General Baker knows the unbearable conditions in the auto plants. He knows about the high rent payments; he knows how hard it is to keep a family alive on the steadily decreasing wages and the rising inflation. He has a family and fears like any worker the depth of the dope and crime in the streets. He lives in a working class community in the heart of the city, not in the mansions and grandiose houses of the bourgeois politicians.

Fellow workers and progressives. We urge you to vote for the Communist Labor Party on August 3 so that the working class can have their spokesman in the state legislature. We urge you to vote Communist Labor Party on August 3 so that General Baker can run in the November elections, and for the first time in 30 years, the revolutionary workers and progressives will have a spokesman who can speak out against speed-up, inflation, unemployment, the Nazis and segregation.
