Not subversion of the government Here but of govern ment in other countries. For the cold hard facts Are that As the threat of external communist aggression appears to diminish the threat of internal subversion grows. Most worrisome of the state department s Many headaches is Italy. Travellers from that coun try and official reports bring Here Only the worst kind of news. The possibility that communists May have to be incorporated into the government looms As a Dis Tinct reality. Indeed others go further and say that some communist representation in the country s Cabinet is inevitable. Complicating the italian Pic Ture is the communist tight listed control of the labor unions. Most of Italy s Indus trial workers Are and i the Complete domination of red slanted Union officials. So bad has the situation become that our so called off Shore procurement program in Italy has been somewhat curtailed and May possibly be completely eliminated. Under that program Many military items supplied to nato Are manufactured in countries other than the u. S. Although we put up the Money. But experience has shown that italian communist dominated unions have indulged in delaying tactics outright sabotage and such incessant trouble making that the program is All but bogged Down. In the Industrial North of Italy the communists Are making Good headway. Sober and thoughtful americans who have studied the italian situation closely Are inclined to take the most pessimistic of views and at least one very highly placed official has stated that unless something drastic is done Italy will have gone communist within the next Twenty months. Nor is the internal communist menace in Italy the Only place at which the state department is casting anxious eyes. France to a lesser de Gree is also having its communist troubles and there again the lever is communist control of the labor unions.
