Call for Socialist Appeal Institute

February 20-21, Chicago, Ill.

THE FAILURE of plans set into motion for the holding of a general united national left wing conference makes it necessary for the Socialist Appeal Association of Chicago to take the initiative in the calling of a gathering where revolutionary Socialists will be able, prior to the convention, to discuss the problems and perspectives confronting the left wing and the party. The reasons for that failure are explained in the lead editorial in this issue. Whatever they may be and whoever may be to blame, the fact remains that it is impossible to permit a situation where left wingers keep silent about their attitude to the convention and to the future of our party. A discussion on resolutions to be presented by left wingers at the convention is imperative and since no national left wing conference could be arranged the Appeal Association must assume the task of conducting such a discussion.

We are still hopeful that before the convention it will be possible to hold a united left wing conference. If that proves to be impossible the Appeal Institute will surely lay the basis for friendly co-operation between the genuine left wing forces in the party.

All Appeal groups and all left wingers anxious and determined to transform the party into the revolutionary instrument of the American working class are invited and urged to attend the Institute. We realize that there are many difficulties which will confront the comrade who are anxious to come to the Institute and participates in the discussion. But every effort should be made t overcome the obstacles. Communicate immediately with
