Italian Election Victory Insecure;
Reds Still Threat-Schleicher
Although the Christian Demo
crat victory in the Italian elections
is important, Dr. E. P. Schleicher,
professor of political science, em
phasized Thursday that the “vic
tory is not secure.”
Dr. Schleicher will speak on
“Italy Today and Tomorrow” at a
Westminster house forum Sunday
evening at 6:30.
Not claiming to be an expert on
Italy, the professor has studied
their governments and closely fol
lowed recent events.
He said he feels that de Gasperi’s
party will have to bring about so
cial and economic reforms or the
people may turn left. It will have
to be a “really unified party.”
Not Won Completely
“Had the Popular Front won,
there never would have been an
other free election in Italy,” ac
cording to Dr. Schleicher. “But,”
he continued, “the Communists did
not lose this one so completely that
they will not have another chance.”
A vote taken before the election
in one of Dr. Schleicher’s classes
gave a large majority to the Chris
tian Democrats, with four stu
dents supporting the Popular Front,
three the right wing Socialists, and
three the Republicans.
The professor credited the vic
ican parties in the coming election.
Uian coup that demonstrated “glar- |
ing stupidity on the part of Rus
sia.” Besides the Czech affair, Dr.
Schleicher listed (1) the church’s
influence (2) the Trieste incident
and (3) “the millions we paid for
each vote”
He wondered what would happen
if the Italian government attempt
ed to influence our election as much
as we did theirs.
“Anything is possible” was the
professor’s opinion about a revival
of fascism, considered because of
the fascist Italian social movement
that won a small percentage of
votes in the election.
Dr. Schleicher believed the Com
munist defeat will not affect Amer
ican parties in th ecoming election.
“It may have made a difference if
votes had gone the other way.
Not Weakened
The Communists in France will
probably not be weakened either,
he declared. Expressing an optimis
tic opinion about possible uprisings
in Italy, Dr. Schleicher was quite
sure “there will not be any organ
ized rioting.”
Comparing our foreign policy to
the de Gasperi party, he said wc
are “against something, but what
are we for?” The importance of
distinguishing between friend and
