Italy moves to curb By PHIL NEWSOM UPl Foreign News Analyst The end o£ the first 100 days of Italian Premier Aldo Moro's centcr-Icft government finds important changes occurring, both in the nation's "miracle" econ omy and among its left-winj political parties. Italy's economic growth in recent years has surpassed even that of France and West Germany. But it also has led to galloping inflation which recently has caused a flight of capital and a trade deficit threatening her gold and dollar reserves. Over the weekend, the United States and a number of European banks moved to tide Italy over its financial emergency until the government's own attempts to put on the inflationary brakes take bold. The help came in the form of a billion dollars in credit designed to halt speculation in the Italian lire. Spending Curbs The government's own efforts have included new taxes to help meet a budget deficit and measures to curb consumer spending. Particularly hard hit was the booming business in new auto mobiles which rapidly has been converting Italy to a nation on wheels. The curbs include tightened restrictions on instaUment buying, a new auto sales tax and vastly increased gasoline taxes. The austerity measures have brought complaints from both labor and bu.siness and have led to strains within the Jloro government in which left-wing socialists are participating for the first time since the years just after World War II. Uo Alternative However, since there seems no pratical alternative to the center-left cooperation of Socialists and Christian Democrats, the government is expected to survive and there are hopes that steps to halt the inflation ary spiral have been taken in time. Directly connected with Socialist leader Pietro Nenni's de cision to lead his left-wing party into the government has been an important party split. Leaders representing 40 per cent of the party membership announced in January they were breaking away from the Nenni leadership and forming a parly of their own to be known as the Italian Socialist Party of Proletarian Unity. It gave Italy three Socialist parties, including the Democratic Socialists of Giuseppe Sara- gat, who now is Italian foreign minister. Nenni is a deputy premier. Communist Split Outside the government but pressuring for a voice are the Italian Communists, who themselves are split. One out of four Italians votes Communist, but in the party conference which ended Sunday in Naples there were com plaints of a declining membership and charges that the leadership had lost touch with the people. An important element in the debate was the split between a pro-Chinese faction and the leadership of Palmiro Togliatti, the Communist veteran who cautiously advocates (he coexistence line of Nikita Khrushchev. Khrushchev's suggestion that Italian Communists improve their relations with the Catholic Church in a spirit of coexistence drew little public reaction from the delegates. It had been interpreted as a move by Khrushchev to improve Communist chances for a role in government and to check the pro-Chinese.
