Next Move in Italy Is Up to Communists Moscow certainly, and Washington probably, had a political strategy for whatever way the Italian elections went. Now that the gratifying results are in, w« shall probably see one of those strategic plans put into action. The first move may be expected from the Communists. They have nothing lo gain by.wHing'stili. But "they have con- •iderable to lose by unwise action. It appears, fromtthe count of votes, that th« country i« strongly behind the da Gaiperi government, and that any large- icale violence by the Communists would be met by vigorous government action backed by popular support. This must present a serious problem to the Moscow strategists. If the Social Democrats had barely squeaked in, the Popular Front could have demanded a place in the government. And being refused as they surely would have been, they might have had strength to follow the Greek pattern and set up a "people's democracy" in the north of Italy. But the loss of the northern industrial cities, heavily Communist in 1946, •hould end any such ideas. They accompanying lo»s of prestige, while it won't stop the Red*' agitation, probably will •low them down. 'The whole story behind this loss is not readily apparent to an American, but some of the big issues are. The Communists as well as their opponents free. ly admitted that the choice in the election lay between America and Russia. Passage of the European aid program in this country was a decisive factor, of course. So was the Catholic church's stand against-communism. The smnrt Anglo-American move for a return of Trieste to Italy, an d Russia's rejection, carried weight. Probably the letters and broadcasts from friends and countrymen in America helped, too. But the Communists are stil] numerous enough to make plenty of trouble They seem to be well led, well disciplined »nd. well financed. It is not likely that , the Kremlin will risk touching off World War HI by a civil Italy. But it can order incessant criticism of the government and industrial sabotage to pro } t mote turmoil and retard recovery. . As for America, the Italian elections . have averted » crisis which would have dealt a near-fat*! blow to European r e, ,eov*ry, to our foreign policy and pm _ ' C*- *"<* to the hope of peace. That ^ . *~ ut 8Ums Jt "P. b«t it is enough. • ; Now ti* ERP can go *he»d M p)an . '• »**• The«progress i« bound to be rough ' «*« -tew. But thuik. to the Italian peo- Pfe, who made-perhaps th e most decisiv9 ««ce in their democratic history, Eu- mov« ahead. Wai lace for Toft? Henry Wallace, in his "police state" »pe«ch in New York, said that communism it spreading "because the policies of Truman, SUssen. Martin and Dewey are policies which i-un counter to the needs of people everywhere." Conspicuously absent from this roster wa» the name of Senator Taft. W« imagine the senator regrets being left out. Mr. Wallace can't have forgotten him, so there must be a reason for his exclusion. We don't know the reason. But we would guess it has something to do with the not-so-fantastic notion that Mr. Wallace, who cannot hope for victory, is in the race in the hope that Mr. Taft will be elected President. It has been said before that Mr. Wallace may entertain the faint hope that Mr. Taft's tepid internationalism would approximate his own policies of appeasement toward Russia, and that Mr. Taft'* economic philosophy would create a depression—and a demand of "Wallace for President" in 1952. The record of Mr. Wallace's past statements bolsters this.theory, and the above quotation might be said to add further support to it. VIEWS OF OTHERS An Answer to Russia? Th« Ferguson retolution for drastic change* in th* United Nations charter pos*> » basic policy decision for the United states. For this plan, put forward by 16 Senators, appears to be aimed actually at the formation of a new International body with Russia and her friends left out. Th« question is: To work along wtth UN, or to abandon It and form a new league of slat*s dominated by America. To many peoplo the Ferguson proposals will seem attractive. Nearly anyone would endorse the announced purposes, but it U necessary to question seriously whether the mean, proposed will achieve the ends desired. The fact that Senator Vandenberg Is reixuted opposed to the project and that It repudiates present State Department judgments indicates that more— and less- may be here than m eeU th« eye. It is true that UN hu not been getting the hoped-for retults— partly because the peace it wa» supposed to keep hn never been made, ir present - policy continues, the United states will whittle away^at the veto power and attempt to use UN •in any way which seems feasible. Even in building up a western European bloc much will b« done through UN. But until there is big-power agreement UN win not become a world policeman. Senator Ferguson suggests that If Russia were pushud out, then the "rest of the world" would unite to form an "unchallengeable world policeman." Many competent students of foreign al- fairs will question the easy assumption that the "rest of the world" would today Join America in an alliance against Russia if the Issue were presented that sharply. Even outside the ring of Russian satellites yuu can count many which though not as afraid of the United States a« of Russia are yet more afraid of war than ol Rusala. And what about this body from which Russia and her friends had been purged? The reforms used for the purging-restrictions of armament and abolition of the veto In cases of aggression or "arming for aggression" _ appear reasonable enough. But would the united Slates want its present arms program restricted by an International body in which it was outvoted and had no veto? Questions of aggression are precisely those on which America lias always Insisted on » veto Who would determine when arming was for aggression? With Russia out might not small countries tend to unite a B ainst the United States? with the world more sharply split, would an economic iron curtain be added lo the political one-ami all Europe's recovery be retarded? Would this splitting increase the war-like tensions and push the cost of arming to bankruptcy's brink? HOW would this affect America's lon g - ra n ge rtclcllsc Some advocates of this project apparently M UN W " e wrccked * ncw ons-nta- ion might make a beginning toward a stronger international body.

He drew up a series of spread to the glands in the armpit or elsewhere, cures can still be obtained,, but not so many.
