By EUGENE LEVIN ! ROME (AP) — Bloody Com-j munist rioting, aimed at ousting j Premier Fernando Tambroni's | Christian Democrat government.] appeared today to have backfired and to have strengthened his hand instead. The rioting, Italy's worst-in years, has brought death to 10 and injuries to more than a thousand —both demonstrators and police. No major Italian city has escaped the disorders during the past two weeks. Communist orators have repeatedly demanded that Tambroni must go or, as one pro-Communist senator put it, Italy will "be a government of civil war." But the strife seems to have warring factions of Christian Democrat united the Tambroni's party behind him. at least for the present, and to have made it more difficult for the Fascists to withdraw their support from him. Tambroni's government %vas a shaky one when it came to power in April. The left wing of the Christian Democrats openly opposed the government. Tambroni needed Fascist votes to survive a vote of confidence in the Chamber of Deputies. The Communists and Socialists on the left, and Liberals and the Monarchists on the right, all opposed Tambroni. A week ago the Premier looked as if he was in trouble. In the early stages of the rioting, Communist demonstrators forced the government to order the cancellation of a Fascist national congress in Genoa. Irate Fascists threatened to withdraw their support from the government. They said it should have given them more protection. But in the past three days violent rioting has created a new, critical situation in which the Fas- Extension OfMarket Protested Presenting objection to the proposed extension of Market! street, north of 19th, as part of a route between the Clark Bridge- McAdams "Berm" complex and the Belt Highway at the northerly edge of the city a remonstrance signed by 167 persons has beeTi filed for consideration of the City Council at its meeting next Wednesday.

A tavern owner confirmed this today when queried by the Telegraph. He said Mayor P. W. Day as head Of the Alton Liquor Commission, has sent letters to ponsibility.
