Yefger am Clifford Nelson. lousing program on national hony. The day has gone when such roni'ses impress the Italians, even n Milan, which is definitely a Red' 4 city. It was expressed by ft otel 'maid, a Frenchwoman mar- ted to an Italian, who had lived nere 30 years. She denied emphati- ally th^t she or her husband was -ommimistic. "Why should we be?" she retort- d. "After all, we are smart enough o realize that their promises never ome to anything, except for the •arty big shots- Little people like s know we shall always have to work for cur livings- Now that we lave recovered our liberty, we want o keep it." But there is sti.. a crying need for elorms to undermine the Reds jropaganda. They h?.ve become F ery powerful. Not only do the> number close to one member out o every 20 Italians, but also they are better organized and more active ban other political groups. Throughout Italy are signs that read "We are not an American colony." Or "We do not serve Amer- We do not fight Russia—We defend Italy." Or "The Atlantic Pact Equals War." On the farms, as we P. as in the factories, the Reds are relentless in their efforts to sabotage ERP. But they reach only a small percentage of the people. The majority of Italians stil] have not tlie remotest Idea what the Marshall Plan does mean for Italy. All they really know is that the country is better off than last year. A dark cloud on the horizon of Italy's future is the threat of future unemployment. Already there are close to 2,000,000 out of work, including some 345,000 youngsters looking for a first job. The population is increasing at the rate ol between 400,000 and 500.000 a year. * • . This could provide fertile soil for Communist propaganda. It poses a real problem ror the government. ERP projects can absorb only small percentage of the surplus workers. Many believe thai, the only scale. But few informed Italians jelievc that either or both of these can do what is necessary. The Communists are maklnp r rreat capital out of the fact that lovhing is being done for the unemployed, beyond the overall program to pul the nation back on Its eel. which is small consolation for these who wonder how they will eat fpr the next few years. The StalinisU contend that economic recovery is just "capitalist talk. 1 Optimists — those who believe that the Reds can be curbed until •ecovery finally discredits them— j place their great reliance upon the belief that Communism is completely alien to Italian nature, even without the anti-Red influence at the Church. They illustrate this by pointing out that even Communist housewives, if they can afford it. have maids to do their housework, just like, the anti-Communist bourgeoisie. They suggest this proves that ideology is only skin deep.
