Nov. 29—Francesco Saverio Nitti, 79-year-old former premier, gravely warned Italy today that she wa- in danger of drifting into civil war. The leftist newspaper La Republica, which follows a Communist-like line, declared however that "there is nobody who wants revolution." War Danger Cited Answering its own question in a large headline. "Will there be revolution?" La Republica backed up its opinion by printing sample quotations from leading Italian politicians. Nitti's "manifesto to the nation," written after weeks of private negotiation trying to find some area of agreement among bitterly contesting forces, declared "we are witnessing a continuous, and always more dangerous, process of division among the parties and among Italians." Citing strikes and disorders which have taken a toll of 24 lives in about two weeks, NHti said "it is neces.sary to flee the specter of civil war." His solemn warning was drown(Turn to Page 12.

Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek, striving to counter the Communist blows, wound up a series of military conferences in Peiping, while his minister of national defense, Gen.

PARIS, Sunday, Nov. . 30—The French government and labor were deadlocked in a.tense atmosphere of political crisis today over a drastic measure to stop strikers from molesting,' non-strikers in a walkout of 2,000,000 workers. Both the government and the Communist-dominated General Confederation of Labor CCGT) wanted to return the workmen to their jobs by tomorrow. Deadlock Develops But the government insisted that it would discuss 'modification of its proposed "law for the defense of the republic" only after receiving written assurance from the CGT th'at the strikes would end. 22nd Tech Reunion Snid Biq Success s Of Exes Attend Homecoming CGT leaders said they would sive such assurances when they had been advised that the government was ready to withdraw its bill now before the National nssomniy. In the Assembly, Communists resorted to every obstructionist method possible to slow passage of tho measure, which would provide imprisonment and fines for those molesting non-strikers, or inciting them to leave their jobs. Continuous Session Held At one point Interior Minister Jules Modi cried that if Communist obstructionism continued, the government would put the law into effect by decree. The Assembly was in continuous session most of the night. The cabinet met almost without a halt in tho Assembly corridors.

Molotov condemned in advance today any attempt by the western powers to establish a provisional German government over their occupation areas. He indicated Russia would not allow such a government xto speak at the peace table. The American source said Molotov told the Big Four foreign ministers council: "If an ersatz government was set up for Bi- Zonia, (the economically merged British nnd American zones), it would not be adequate to speak for Germany." Soviet Sinnd Hit As the first week of the conference ended without agreement on any major issues, Molotov demanded that the establishment of a central German government be required before n peace conference is held.' He met a solid lineup of foreign ministers of the ^United States, Britain and France who disagreed with him, informants said. Officials present quoted U.S. Secretary George C. Marshall as saying: "We regard both the question of a peace conference and establishment of a German government as important.
