hollowing are excerpts from an official pamphlet of the Communist Party, publishing the program ratified unanimously Ivy
delegates to the party's National Election Conference, held in New
York August 7-8, 1954. (Published by New Century Publishers,
832 Broadway, New York, September, 1954.)
The Communist Party says: "The issue today is not communism. . . . No social system can be imported from abroad. Nor
do we propose to do so. We deny that the Soviet Union . . .
threatens our country, or could threaten our country."
There can be no hope for a lasting
peace and world disarmament without
accepting the principle of peaceful coexistence between the capitali-l I .S.V
and the socialist Soviet Union and
I'cople's China. This i- necessary
whether one agrees or disagrees with
Socialism, whether one likes or dislikes
Peaceful co-existence does not pre^
elude, but includes, a peaceful competition between the different social systems. It does exclude, however, a settlement by force of arms of the question
as to which social system is superior.
To ease world tension and to restore
the United Nations as an instrument
for lasting peace we propose:
|1 I A return to President Roosevelt's
policy of big power negotiation and
agreement. This musj include the admission of People's China, ihe established
and effective government of the greal
Chinese nation, lo ihe UN and its recognition by the U.S.
 An end to the arms race and to
the policy of encircling the globe with
I S. miliian bases. What is needed is a
world han on the use of all atomic
weapons and an agreement for a drastic
reduction in all types of armaments. We
oppose the militarization of our youth
and Universal Military Training.
IMS] The widest promotion of peaceful
world trade. Our country, in its own
interests, must take advantage of the immense markets for American goods
mailable in the Soviet Union, China and
Fasten) K.urope. These markets c-cin profile millions of jobs for American
workmen for years to conic. We- favor
the extension of credit to holster world
trade and to help overcome the hunger
and under-development of ihe colonial
lands. The colonial and semi-colonial
countries need machine tools, agricultural implements and farm products. Bill
they rightfully reject fraudulent "Point -r
T" programs which aim at robbing them
of their national independence, natural
resources, and keeping them as backward hinterlands.

world peace and to the security of the
I ,S. We stand for a united, democratic
and peaceful Germany.
 No intervention in the internal
affairs of other nations and the recog-
|nitron of the right of all nations to govern' themselves. This means an end to
the Dulles policy of instigating civil
wars in other countries and of aiding
the oppressors "1 the colonial peoples of
Indo-Ghina and of all Africa and Asia.
This also means freedom ami inelepe-n-
deuce tee the peoples enslaved in America's colonial empire and ils military
bases scattered throughout the world.
We support the struggle of the Guatemalan people for the restoration of their
national independence and democratic
Liberties and for an end to the illegal
rule of the Wall Street-United Fruil
Company puppet dictatorship. We favor
full and unconditional independence for
Puerto Rico; full equality and demo-
< ialii- rights for Hawaii; and complete
political and economic freedom for the
Philippines. We support ihe struggles
for national independence of the peoples
of the Arab state's and of Israel, and the
cause of Arab-Jewish harmony in the
fight for peace1 and national freedom.
The right of all nations to restrict and
control all foreign investments on their
territories should be recognized and respected. We favor a policy of the good
neighbor to the Latin American lands
and to all nations.
The answer to our present national
plight is not a switch-back to another
Truman-type administration. The Truman administration, by departing from
Roosevelt's foreign and domestic policies, paved the way for the Republicans
to grab political power, for McCarthy-
