Disbanding of Red Youth Groups in Italy Asked ROME. Mar. 2. (UP)—V9lce Premier Randolfo Pacciardi. the cabinet chief in charge of public order during th e Italian election campaign, demanded today thai uniformed Communist youth brigades be disbanded by force if necessary. Pacciardi charged in his newspaper, Voce Republicans, that the police have documented evidence the brigades were being used Illegally and were Intended for violent action In the election campaign. "Therefore, on this hot electoral I eve, Jt is indispensable to disband [ them by invitation or with force because In » Democratic republic only the state must have armed forces," the paper said.

Rush said in that same low insistent tone, "that it might have been the power of "suggestion?" He let the words sink in, heavily, relentlessly, and she thought, It could have happened that way.

The bridge collapsed and Luke was on it—it could have been you—sure. But you didn't think until alter you got th* letter that it had been a trap, did you?

She was never sure iust how she got there but .she was, her face pressed against his coat. She was sobbing and trembling and Hush was holding her tight and kissing lier hair and making soothing comforting sounds. '•' "Oh, Rush," she said brokenly, "oh, darling, it's all been so horrible! I've been so—so— Oh, Rush, I guess I have been nearly out of my mind! I've had an awful lot of headaches lately. And— and—Hush, I'll do everything I can to help it you think I'm—if it's . . ." Her eyes filled with quick tears. "Now, look, Ann, there isn't thing the matter with you that a few days of rest and quiet and sunshine won'ticure.

I've missed you." The chill was leaving her body. The fear wtis draining away. Her blood wai tingling and she was growing warm all over. Rush held her face close to his, waiting for her answer. She ran her finner- tips over his smooth-shaven jaw, and slowly turned her lace so that her lips met his. "All right. Rush," she whispered. "All right." • • • r PHEY made their plans hurriedly. Rush wonted to gel started right away. •' ^ "It is important for your peace of' mind." he said, "that no one lias a chance to get to the cottage before we do." Ann should get up and pack just toss a few things into a suit case, Rush would go to the lab and give Gay a few instructions then he would find the othen am tell them they were going. She got ou; a big suitcase. On would do for both of them. .Sh was in her closet searching fo bathing suits when she heard Rusl at the dresser. "Still there, darling?" she called "Want anything?" "Ann, don't take a lot of stu for me. Just some shorts and decent pair of slacks in case w eat out." "I know." She came out of 11 closet and kissed his cheek.

She couldn't llnd it. Not In the tiest bathroom either. She came back to their room, frowning 'lightly, trying to think where it might be. And then her face cleared. There would be a spare n that case of hit, she'd get Uiat. She opened the dresser drawer, ook out the leather kit Rush had iust held in his hands. It was snapped shut but not locked and she remembered later that she was still humming a silly little tune ns she pressed the catch and opened it The tune stopped «ven at tinw stopped and the earth stopped and every thing else that might have moved stopped.. Because the leather case—the case Rush had just tossed casually back into the drawer—the case he'd said so blandly they wouldn't take—held not only the usual equipment of a man's toilet cose but, lucked to one side, the letter from Mr. Stark in Cheyenne, the note she had scribbled to Enos about Ihe can of wax and the bent and twisted lock to the grondtather clock.
