Nearly 79 per cent of the 37 million voters cast ballots in fine weather Sunday. There was another seven hours of balloting today. It was Italy's sixth election since it became a republic 26 years ago. With the country' beset by an economic slump and social unrest, the outcome appeared to be as important as the first one in which the war- weary Italians rejected commu nism and Ihe revival of fascism. The Christian Democrats, who are backed by the Roman Calh- olic Church, always have been the largest party although never winning a majority. They have governed alone or with junior partners. But in recent years their support has declined, with their vole percentage slipping from 48.5 in 1948 to 39.1 in 1968. For the last decade the Social- ists were the Christian Demo- crals' cla'ef allies in a centre- left coalition.

Sagging bridge sinks font' feet PEMBROKE, Onl. fCP) More an Inconvenience than a disaster, the sagging Pctawawa River bridge on the Trans-Can- ada highway has caused a ae- ries o[ emergency manoeuvres. Tlie heavily-used bridge, built in the 1940s, joins Pembroke and Petawawa Village wiUi CFB Pelawawa and Ihe Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. plant at Chalk Ilivcr. It began to sag Saturday and by Sunday had buckled and sunk about four feet with a break of about seven Inches in the middle span. A spokesman for the Ontario transport department said today the bridge damage was caused by heavy flood waters which un- dermined the structure's foun- dations. With most married Camp Pe- tawawa personnel and many of the AECL workers living either In Pembroke or Petawawa Vil- lage, the problem became mainly one of transport, About military and AECL work- ers are involved. The only highway link be- tween the four poiuls now is 80 miles of gravel side road, al- most two hours of driving each way. The army immediately started a shuttle ferry service, using assault boats, across the river. For n time Uie only highway link between the four points was 00 miles of gravel side road, al- most two hours ol driving each way. But another dolour, involv- ing an eight-mile trip, has been opened for vehicles of under a half-ton. This goes over an eld- erly bridge. But AECL Immediately ar- ranged willi CP Rail to provide a rail shuttle of three connected self-propelled diesel passenger cars over the railroad bridge between Petawnwa Village and a spur off the main trans-Can- ada line at the military camp. Although the distance from the village to the AECL plant is about 12 miles, the distance the rail shuttle will travel Is only five or six miles with AECL buses taking their workers the remaining distance. A CPU spokesman Sunday said the service would start at about a.m. EDT today and would be available about 20 hours a day until normal road traffic is restored.
