34 Golesburq Reaister-Mqil, Golesburo. Ill Wednesday, Oct, 2, 1963 Italian Reds Wait Eagerly On Sidelines By ALLAN .JACKS ROME (AP)—Italy is traveling a rocky road, both politically and economically. A resurgent Communist party is waiting patiently on the sidelines to take advantage of the situation. For the present the party and its experienced leaders seem content to watch deteriorating conditions and save their big guns- strikes and riots—for the future. With summer vacations over, the so-called stopgap government of Premier Giuseppe Leone has announced a semi-austerity program providing for cutbacks in government spending, reduction of imports, higher taxes on luxury items and other measures. Said Leone in a recent speech: "We do not deny, or ignore, that current problems are heavy and serious." He went on to exhort Italians not to lose faith in the government or the economy. Italian politics was left in a turmoil by the 14-month, left-leaning government of Amintore Fanfani. The government was defeated last April in an election in which the Communists made an astonishing showing. The Reds polled 25 per cent of the vote. Fanfani's Christian Democrats, who have governed Italy since World War II and once could count on half the voters, polled only 38 per cent. The rest of the ballots were split among six other parties. During the same 14 months Italy's economic boom began to falter. Prices have been spiraling upward for months. Some Italians, and foreign observers, blame circumstances as much as Fanfani for these price rises and other problems. Full employment, for the first time in Italy's history, and general prosperity have had inflationary effects. Whatever the cause, politicians have taken little notice until Leone's recent speech. Instead they have been debating the merits and demerits of Fanfani's experimental "opening to the left," the ideological formula under which he ran the government with the support of the country's bright pink Socialist party. The Leone government was formed as a post-election stopgap to handle routine business until various parties, particularly the Christian Democrats and Socialists, could settle internal disputes and form some sort of working coalition. Five months after the elections, the internal disputes are no nearer solution and efforts to resolve them are. exhausting politicians who should be attending to national rather than party problems. The major exception is the Communist party. It stands solidly behind veteran Palmiro Togliatti, undivided by the Chinese-Soviet feud, and ready to make the most of the growing crisis.
