Florence Morning News (Newspaper) - March 17, 1940, Florence, South CarolinaSunday morning March 17, 1940 morning news. Florence. 8. C. Much speculation on which Way Italy will move uneasy lie Heads of fascists while awaiting actions he join with allies or Germany or against Russia or stay Neutral by c11a11lks cupt1li. Rome of the associated press it is the Fash Ion these Days for fascist Lead ers to assure their followers that they May to compelled at any moment to Exchange comparative comforts of non belligerency for the Rigours of War. Ettore Muti the new party Sun re tiry said so i few weeks ago. Go Neil Attilio Teruzzi minister for italian Africa recently car ried a similar message to l Blac shirts in Ethiopia. If Italy s potential soldiers my observing Premier Benito Musso Lini s admonitions literally their uneasy Heads lie at night on Bulg ing Knapsacks and they never arc further than sprinting distance from their muskets. Although he True fascist is pictured in party lore As a Man eager to prove his strength Ana morale in Battle the average ital Ian does not always find Tula Tough talk soothing. Furthermore it puzzles him. If he argues he must be Eter Nally prepared to leap into the trenches it would be useful to know beforehand in what direction the trenches might face. Or May find sonic Comfort in his perplexity in the knowledge that it is shared by Many of Tiu Sage Gen hem in in the embassies who arc paid to give their governments reliable information about just such matters. These circles to give the Diplo malic corps its customary geometrical designation Are spending some uneasy Days themselves tying to decide whether to slake Iligir reputations As prophets on italian intervention in the War the Side of Germany intervention on the Side of the allies o ration of formal neutrality or continuation of uie present Suilo of non belligerency an amphibious stain particularly irksome to he British. The grounds for forecasting Italy s eventual Entrance into War 11 in first that party leaders por Sist in talking about its possibility and secondly precedent of Mussolini s attitude Twenty Fiva years ago when he campaigned successfully for italian in Erven Tion in the world War on he Side of Britain and France. At that time he said the vanquished will have a history but not the absent. If Italy Mains Abnel she will be More the land of the dead Mussolini has made it Plain he expects Italy to play a major part in constructing the new Europe. But diplomats wonder if in May not be pondering just As Quarter of a Century ago what influence Italy will have in converting the fruits of an eventual Victory to which it. Has made no direct contribution. Opposing ibis reasoning Are Hie doubts of Many experts who b j Lievow Italy does not yet consider itself entirely prepared to under take n major War especially since recent even is have so largely dissipated former dreams of Hie War of lightning less than a year ago Italy formed Germany it would no reach its Peak of military Prepa Lallon before 1012. Although she has strained in the meantime to expedite her program of Orsi Sii observers consider her is ill handicapped seriously by a Short ago of raw materials especially Oil Iron and steel. The fact be government has found it advisable to inquire to the availability of housewives Copper saucepans in the event of War need is one of the Illuminat ing sidelights on the dimensions of the Supply problem. Those deficiencies. Naturally would not be As serious if in ill were fighting with the allies As if she were supporting and subject to the British Block Ade. There is general Arre Cincil among Neutral observers hint ital Ian intervention on the Side of Germany is unlikely. If Over it was to have occurred they say it would have been at the very outset of the even when the Rome Berlin Axis was the Kingpin of fascist foreign policy italians were stubbornly impervious to propaganda Desi trn a to persuade them that the nazis were their spiritual Broth ers and that the destinies of their countries were Inglis Shibly linked. Nevertheless it generally wis agreed that Mussolini s prestige among his people was such that of would have led hem into War or the Side of Germany if he and wished. Now the German soviet Alli Ance has created a new situation. A major rearrangement of fas Cist ideology would be necessary to make Italy the great anti bolshevism Power Happy in us company of the nazi communist fraternity. On the other hand there is no substantial evidence that Italy is considering tin owing in its lot with the allies. That too in the opinion of Neutral observers would involve too violent a reversal of recent policy dominated by constantly As cried hostility to the great Pluto Ahhong i Many contend that the creation of the proper psychological atmosphere for such a switch would not exceed the Verna file Powers of the fascist propaganda machine there is not Hing to indicate that they Are Likely to be employed for that purpose criticism of the British a it French continues to to the Rule of the fascist press. The Ger mans get much the better of tli2 break. Italian newspapers have not ceased to complain of the treat ment Italy received at the Hamaj of the allies after the last War nor to remind them that Italy considers them in arrears in he settlement of old accounts. They discuss Franco British War Aims with an irony which they spare the germans. Fascist leaders occasionally take pains to recall that the policy of the regime still is Anli demo crr. Despite the silencing of Ihu old Axis hallelujah. At the same time the italian attitude toward the British Block Ade plainly shows that the government Means to keep its bait ing of the allies within limits. The fascist press always ready to bristle and snarl at any tres pass upon italian prestige has Dis played an unaccustomed complacency in the face of Britain s halt ing of italian mail and Carp boats its removal of German Uiti Zens from italian liners and the detention of supplies consigned to Italy but suspected by the British of being destined for Germany. Adding up these various the analysts conclude that even though Italy is not by rating with enthusiasm for that Allied Caus a she likewise is bursting with no desire to combat it. There is a third Way in a Hin Italy might become involved in the Russia in the Balkans. Many believe it the moot Likely of All. Italy considers herself a bal Kan Power thanks to the Albania n Conquest. She already Iris Russia she would Brook no interference with her interests in Southeastern Europe. War Slih Russia would present Italy in her favorite rope s bulwark against bolshevism. It would preserve her from 11 in j embarrassments which inter Var. Tijon a behalf of Germany or the allies tight entail. T 1 would not be against Germany unless Germany chose so to consider it. It would not of directly in favor of the allies. It might however play into the allies hands or More specifically into the bands of general Wey Cand s near Eastern army by establishing a. New theater of War in Southeastern Europe which would open the Way to out Flaim ing the Siegfried Lino. There remains the pos Sibilev that Italy will continue to sit on the sidelines of the conflict ii Spile Mussolini s earlier prediction As to what happens to sedentary Peoples in time of War it is a role with certain attract Lions some of which Are translatable in foreign Exchange. 11 is popular with Large sections of the Public.
