(Staff Photo by Leo Chabot) Campaign Falls Silent to Give '«. J. C7 :"' Italians Chance to Choose By Victor L. Simpson ROME (AP) - Italy's violence-marred political campaign fell silent Saturday -- a day legally set aside to give voters a chance to make up their minds on parliamentary elections that could propel Communists into the government with possible international repercussions. But the voice of the Vatican was heard in a radio commentary on the eve of the balloting today and Monday. "God preferred man free with the risk of disorder rather than order without freedom," the Vatican radio said at the end of a newscast. It added in the broadcast that it is better to risk "some disorder than institute an order without the risks of freedom." The commentary appeared to be part of the anti-Communist campaign the Vatican has been conducting from the start. * * * NINE PARTIES, ranging from Neo- Fascists to groups to the left of the Communist party, are vying for 630 seats in the Chamber of Deputies and 315 in the Senate.' Other important races include local elections in Rome, the city of Popes and the Italian capital. A victory in Rome would give the Communists a hand in power in all major mainland cities. The five-week campaign officially ended at midnight Friday with the two largest parties -- the Christian Democrats and the Communists -- trading accusations at rallies in Rome. New disorders erupted in the early " hours, further staining a campaign that claimed four lives and scores of injured. In San Remo, on the Italian Riviera, police reported two officers trying to separate battling leftists and rightists were injured when hit by a car driven by an official of the far-right Italian Social Movement MSI. . In Milan, Italy's financial hub in the north, a Christian Democratic city councilman was attacked by leftist extremists and hospitalized, police said. In Rome, police surprised a dozen youths smashing '.cars with iron bars. Police fired but the " youths all got away. More than 40 million Italians from the Alps to Sicily are eligible to cast ballots in 73,178 polling places which close Monday at 2 p.m. -- 8 a.m., EOT - after remaining open for a total of 22 hours. The elections are expected to have repercussions in Washington, other Western capitals and Moscow because of the possibility that the Italian Communist party will win a place in the government. The United States is opposed to Communist participation, warning it would force a reassessment of American relations with Italy. * * · THE COMMUNISTS, pledging allegi- ence to civil liberties and Western parliamentary democracy, have asserted their autonomy from Moscow. Enrico Berlin! guer, the 54-year-old Sardinian who has guided his party's attempt to seek power through the ballot box, declared that Italy's continued membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization serves to protect him from becoming another Alexander Dubcek, whose attempt at liberalization in Czechoslovakia was crushed by Soviet-led Warsaw Pact tanks in 1968. But the Christian Democrats, backed by the Roman Catholic Church, have warned voters of alleged risks of a Communist victory and repeatedly rejected Communist offers for a postelection alliance. Amintore Fanfani, former premier and party leader, has campaigned on the theme that a Communist victory risks isolating Italy from its traditional Western partners. The Christian Democrats, in power since the end of World War II, bear the burden for a string of scandals, inflation of 35 per cent on an annual basis from January through April, and unemployment of 7 per cent of Italy's 20 million-member labor orce. Premier Aldo. Moro leads Italy's 3th postwar government. ' the »rty, which received 48 per cent of the votij) 1948, saw its share drop to 38.8 per lenln the last parliament elections fouf'eai'ago and to 35.3 per cent in regions efBjons last June. The Communists ran neck and neck with the Christian Democrats a year ago, winning a third of the votes. * * « FOR THE FIRST TIME, 18-year-olds are allowed to vote, but only in the race for the Chamber of Deputies -- a factor that is expected to help the Communists. Voters must be 25 years old to vote in the LACY and SHORT Senate race, however, and this raises the prospect of a more leftist Chamber. Both houses have equal powers. While Pope Paul VI himself has called on the faithful to vote against the Communists, Berlinguer's party needs the Catholic vote to be successful. The party claims 1.7 million card-carrying members but it won more than 9 million votes in 1972. 2 /2 YEAR CERTIFICATES of DEPOSIT 11 % EACH DEPOSITOR INSUREDTO S 40,000 00 BY mm FEDERAL RESERVESySTEM 1 YEAR CERTIFICATES OF DEPOSIT 6% 90 DAY 'City Savings REGULAR Passbook Savings 5% (Federal law and regulation prohibit the payment of a time deposit prior to maturity unless three months of ihe interest thereon is forfeited and interest on the amount withdrawn is reduced to the regular savings rote.)
