SOCIALISTS CENTER FIGHT IN
NINE CONGRESS DISTRICTS
By centering their efforts in con
gressional districts where they have
a strong following, Socialists are
working from a new angle. They
are attempting to establish a group
in congress which shall be the
spokesman for labor and the Social
ist ideals after the manner of the So
cialist groups in European legislative
bodies.
This is the purpose which has
dominated the present campaign, by
which the Socialists expect to elect
nine congressmen and one senator
Tuesday, according to Adolph Ger
mer, national secretary of the party.
"The success of Victor Berger and
Meyer London in congress shows
what lone congressmen can do," he
said.- "Now we are going to put in
a Socialist group'to raise a mightier
voice. One man in congress is worth
a hundred on begging committees
and commissions."
