THURSDAY, APRIL 17, 1941 BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREfc New York Honeycombed With Fascist esti- num- I5V TOM WOLF N"KA Service Stuff Correspondent NEW YORK — After Rome, all roiui.s u-ad to New York. About li,000,000 persons of Italian origin crowd iiie moiropoliuin area's muny "Little Italy" districts. Tiuit is iv.ic.x- ihe total population of Italy's capital, and largest city. Wiiii relations bouveen the United Suites and Italy severely .strained over American seizure of Italian .ships and the recent request for the recall of Admiral Alberto Lai.s. Italian naval attache at Washington, the conduct and attitude of these Italian-Americans becomes of the utmost importance. Most informed observers mate an "appalling hiyh" bi.-r of pro-fascists among York's Italian-Americans — from :iu to 5<J per cent. How is this potential fifth column group organized? How will the strained U. S.- Halian relations affect, its activity? FEW WEAR lil.ACKSlllRTS Practically without exception there are no organizations in New York ciiy whose members actually wear blackshirts. Prior to H)i>U many Italian fascists openly strutted clown New York's streets in raven-hued shirts. Bui in that year their chief organization, the Fascist League of North America, was broken up and driven underground. Today most of the fascist activity is carried on under the guise of various "cultural" and "educational groups." These groups are under spervision by a central, local Italian organization. This, in turn. Ls directed from Rome by the Asi-ociation of Italians abroad. Many of the "educational" clubs hold classes for young arid old alike. Thee cost of these classes, including teacher's salary and textbooks (from Italy), is usually jointly underwritten by the students and the Italian consulates. NOT ALL PROPAGANDA. As in the case of Nazi pron-i- gandn in this country, the siphons which suck fascism from Italy and spew it into America are the Italian consular officers, v;ho can operate with certain immunity. Assigned to every consulate are a number of "cultural attaches," whose duty is obviously the spreading of fascism. That the work of the various attaches may call for more than propaganda, however, is seen in Secretary Hull's request for the recall of Admiral Lais, connecting him "With the commission by certain persons of acts in violation of the laws of the United States." The consul, or one of his attaches, usually addresses the meetings of the ' "cultural" societies^ They extol the aims, ideals, and work of Mussolini and generally whoop it up for fascism. All of this. of course, is done under the guise of informal, social gatherings. PROCEEDINGS ARE WIDELY PUBLICIZED j These "cultural" gatherings and | their proceedings are widely pub- j licized in New York's two biggest I Italian dailies, "II Progresso Italo- Americano" and "Corriere D'Amer- ica." thus giving the doctrines expressed even further audiences. Both papers are owned by Italian- t ^ born Generoso Pope, who at least twice since Mussolini's rise to power has been decorated by Italy. While constantly proclaiming 100 per cent Americanism for Italians in the U. S.. they have also been loud in their editorial praise of II Duce and his work. In addition to propaganda pressure, another subtler form of pressure is exerted on italian- Americans through fascist control of many of the Italian-American trade organizations and "banks. It is often difficult for known anti-fascist Italians to secure trade privileges from his community organizations. Opposing this formidable pro- fascist structure are a score of small independent journals and many prominent citizens of Italia descent, including New York's bitterly anti-fascist. Mayor La- Guardia. The anti-fascist opposi- tio, however, lacks the smooth organization of the pro-fascist groups. Perhaps as effective antifascist propaganda as any ha.s been the terrific shellacking the British and Greeks have handed Mussolini's "invincible legions." It is unlikely that the strain on U. S.-Italian relations will materially change the methods of the fascist Italian - Americans, They reach large audiences operating as cultural, social and educational organizations. They can spread the good word in safetty and await the moment to strike. j s And Dangers Lure Stenographer On Vacations The luo sous of Italy, pictured at left, ubove. giving the fuscjsi salute :it a )no-N';i7.i c«'lebr:Uion neur New York, an- in the minority.

He accomplished this by placing lights on his tractor and working at night. His fast work was due to a "hunch" that a rain was threatening the Easter holiday. Last season, Grummer produced the first bale of cotton in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi. Apparently, he has his eye on the record again this year.
