A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE THE LOGANSPORT PHAROS-TRIBUNE A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE No Party Alliances In Italian Election ROME — The Italians will vote again in a general election next spring to choose the new Parliament. It will be a free-for-all 'in the sense that this time they will be no electoral alliances; each party will fight for its own victory. In the preceding general election of 1953, the center coalition parties- (Christian Democrats, Social Democrats, Republicans and Literals) stood together against the alliance of the Communists and the left-wing Socialists and 'he bloc formed by the Monarchists and the neo-fascists of the MSI. This time each party of the old democratic coalition of center par- 'ies, which has ruled the country for the past 10 years, is against .he other three members of the old coalition. The Christian Democrats of Amintore FanEani are determined to get an absolute majority as they did in 1948. Fan- ianl does not want the Christian Democrats to need any allies in future governments. The old right-wing bloc of Mon- achists and-MSI is disrupted by th- split among the Monarchists. This occurred in 1954 when Commander Achille Lauro, the mayor of Naples, left the National Monarchists and founded the Popular Monarchist group. Lauro is all- out in an offensive to defeat his old companion, Alfredo Covelli, leader of the National Monarchists, and the neo-fascist MSI. The 70-year-old Lauro, according to political observers, is well in the south of Italy, in Sicily and in Sardina. Last June in once solidly allied with the left- wing, Socialists of Pietro Nenni will fight'alone, as the relations aetween the two groups are now, to say the least, rather cold. Political experts point out that even inside each party there will be groups and "currents" fighting each other. Nenni will have to defend himself from the attack of elements determined to remain faithful to the Communists. Communist Division Giuseppe Saragat, leader of the Social Democrats, will have to face the hostility of those who want unification with Nenni at any cost and as soon as possible. Among the Christian Democrats, Fanfani will face disscssion from former Premier Mario Scelba, while Guido Gonella .and Foreign Minister Giuseppe Fella have foreign policy differences. Fanfani regional elections of Cardinia, ! is for a new all-Christian Demo- Lauro's party scored a resounding jcrat government, while Scelba success by polling 60,000 votes, i wants to return to a four-party compared with 38,000 for Covelli. Political observers said at the time that the 21,000 votes the Communists lost in Sardinia went to Lauro's party. Next spring the Communists munist members ol Parliment and intellectuals to quit the party ftave created an uneasiness which led to the formation of a group who does not intend to follow the Moscow line any more. The over-all picture of the next elections will be as follows: The Christian Democrats trying to get the upper hand by snatch ing votes from the center-left parties and the right-wing bloc; all other parties trying to prevent the Christian Democrats from getting an absolute majority in the new parliament which would permit Fanfani's party to rule the country with .a free hand.
