V Signed--Charles Le« ···'" ··· ··-···· '-- (Continued from Page 1) Communist Vice-Premier Matyas Rakosi as virtual dictator, would encounter underground' resistance from "about hall' the population", but they said there was no possibility of actually ousting the new regime. The Communist coup, they said, was the direct result of the course of events taken in Europe since President Truman first announced the loans of Greece and Turkey. Hungary and Austria, have been the big question marks for the Russians in the broad expanse of their structure reaching from Poland to Yugoslavia. The question mark In Hungary now has been erased, A similar procedure in Austria seemingly would not be so easy. The country -is not occupied by Russsla alone, but by three other powers, the United States, Britain nnd France. This point was punctuated by Washington dispatches quoting au~ thoritative sources as saying the United States government was prepared to abandon peace-making efforts in Austria and keep occupation troops in the country indefinitely to prevent a Communist grab. Rcgarless of what may happen in Austria, however, the long- rumored Soviat-sponsored "Balkan Federation" may be regarded as an accomplished fact, regardless of whether it ia ever formally organized and proclaimed, In Italy and France the Communists lately have been squeezed out of the governments. Many observers believe that Italy may be the next objective in a frontal Communist attack, Demonstrations against "American dollar tyranny" and against the new non- Communist government of Premier Alcide de Gasperi are regarded as the first skirmishes. All week the Communists and de Gaspcrls Christian Democrats have been engaged in clashes at Florence over control of the Confederation of Labor. .
