He said the fu- iture of Italy was endangered'and his proposal won some early sup- iport. 1 Earlier the government had threatened tougher police action unless the Communists halt the wave of violence which has cost seven lives nnrl injuries to 750. Giovanni Leone, president of the Chamber of Deputies, an• nounced his support of the truce, and similar indications of approv- ,al tame from parties of the cen- i ter and right, and non-Communist {unions. , The pro-Communist Socialist ; party of Pietro Nenni approved jthe truce, "provided the government afterward does not revert to the same police tactics." There was no word from the Communists, or the Red-dominated Confederation of Labor. Merzagora said he was motivated by "the gravity of the situation and the realization that the jmost sacred values of the consti- Jution had been compromised, and ithe future of the country en- jdangered." ' Violence erupted at Palermo, j where demonstrators hurled pav- |ing stones at police and ripped | boards from a construction proj- ;ect to barricade a street. Premier Fernando Tambroni .accused the Reds of using anti- ifacism as a front for an attempt jto seize power and warned the government would do its "Ml die ty" to restore order. The Communist-led Confederation of Labor (CGID called a nationwide 10-hour general strike this afternoon in protest against "police brutality."
