Socialist Norman Thomas at peace rally. Washington, D.C., June 8. 1,100 people crowded into an antiwar mass meeting held here last night. Condemnation of 'war hysteria' and defense policies were voiced by leaders of congressional, labor, student, and women's groups. Norman Thomas, socialist candidate for Presidency, urged the establishment of camps in this country to care for European refugees. He warned against 'hysterical armament economics - unnecessary for the protection of our homes' - and declared American civil liberties had already been infringed upon by 'war hysteria'
