MONDAY- APRIL 26, 1948 BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Italy Needs Four Years of ERP Aid Marshall Plan Help, ||'' Treaty Revision Called For to Overcome Reds Ky Hugh Baillle • (President of Ihe Drilled Press) (World Copyright by United Prens) ROME, April 20. (UP)—Italy needs the entire four years of the Marshall Plan lo keep lier Communists on the run. and revision of her peace treaty to play a full part In _the Western European union. Premier Alcide cie Gasperi outlined Ihese two aims to the United Press In his nrst exclusive interview since he icrt his Christian Democratic party to a smashing election victory over the Communist front. Despite the victory, lie said Communism will continue as an Important factor in Kay "because the parly inlernal machinery is an iron one." "The Communist front got 8,000,000 votes and many votes are always a danger," de Gasperi said. "But we are working to convert them." In connection with reducing Com- mmist strength, dc Gasperi also "Yon can be sure the money Ihe American taxpayer is spending here will not be wasled." The 87-year-old prime minister, whose electoral victory made him Ihe indisputabe leader in Italy and a leading contender for the biggest man in Western Europe, spoke for 50 minutes on the post-election outlook tor Ms country. He made these main points: ' ^ Firstly, the Italian government's own program for land and social reform and revived economy, which are the greatest factors in further reducing Communist strength, is based squarely on the Marshall Plan. Secondly, the non-Communist political parties will continue their already effective policy of whitling away at Communist strength in the big labor and partisan organizations. Treaty Revision Essential Thirdly, peace treaty revision Is essential to give Italy full parity, with other nations, enable her to| defend herself, restore her influence in the colonies and permit her full participation in the Western Euro- lean union. "Speak as little a.s possible of war," de Gasperi said. "It is not approaching. I don't think It will soon." Sitting at ease behind the carved oalc refectory table which is his desk in the Viimriitle Palace, de Gasperi spoke earnestly and with commanding self assurance. He was tired and suffering from a cold, but he was obviously a happy man. Joking about his recent strenuous campaign in which lie made 52 speeches in less than one month he said: * > • "We did better than you in America thought we would, didn't we?" He added: "The key to' my campaign was my aggressive attack against the Corn- inform. Such an attack was unprecedented for a prime minister of Italy. It surprised those who did not know^my earlier background. I always loved a battle."

Presented with a list of eight questions, de Gasperi read them carefully, wrinkling his brows, and then • looked, up and began answering Ihem in order. He smiled quizzically at the tough ones, but he tackled them all. The first two dealt with how long United States aid will be necessary for Italy and specifically how it will be used. He replied in part: "I believe the four year plan of the European Recovery Program will be sufficient for Italy to reorganize her economy and increase her production in order to reach ecmili- Brkim In her trsde balance. And all four years of the plan will certainly be necessary. (Present appropriations cover only 15 months.) Tourist Trade Necessary "Naturally this means lhat behind the Marshall Plan there will be tourist traffic which we can revive through EBP and by rebuilding our merchant marine, which again depends on ERP. Tourist and maritime transportation have been absolutely necessary for the Italian trade balance. The Marshall Plan and the international bank now consider as secure such tourist investments as hotels and other equipment. The same applies to transportation. "We already have a fair merchant marine, which enables us to benefit from the freight trade to South The One in the Middle's on Alien er the main aims "according to the intention of the American Congress Besides there will be an American commission here to see for itself. He said Increased production under ERP would be obtained by lin- porthiB raw materials such as con and gasoline, by improving obsolete equipment, especially In heavj Industry, and by spending for land reclamation and irrigation to speed land reform. De Gasperi smiled broadly at the third question, whether the Communist threat will continue or disappear before the next election scheduled five years hence. "Prophecy?" he said with a sharp rising Inflection. "That's dangerous." But after emphasizing the size of the Communist front vote and the thoroughness of its party organl- Rioting in Japan Blamed on Reds U.S. Occupation Fore* Bans Demonstrations; Averts Big Outbreak KOBE.
