The united front pact between the Socialist and Communist parties of France has engendered a tremendous discussion. One of the salient points in it revolves around the problem of “organic unity” of the two parties for which a number of spokesmen of both sides have already declared. Because the fusion of these two parties into one would have incalculable international consequences, we are reprinting three documents here for information and discussion purposes. One is the text of the united front pact. The other two are taken from a recent issue of La Verité, weekly organ of the Communist League of France, which present opposing views on the question involved. As additional material of interest and weight appears, The New International will publish it in its columns. – Ed.
