Chicago socialists held a successful Debs Day dinner in November featuring Norman Thomas and Sidney Lens. More than 200 persons participated in the dinner, netting the Chicago SP-SDF a sum of more than $1,000. Local Chicago also organized a series of activities in connection with the recent visit by Michael Harrington, editor of New America, to that city. Harrington appeared on television and debated M. Stanton Evans, editor of the Indianapolis News and author of a new book on conservatism on the campus. The topic was: Should students go left?
