Italian scene The interest of the United States is twofold First America is always con cerned when the flag of a free government is in jeopardy Thesecond point of interest concerns future bases for our Polaris toting nuclear subma rines now on patrol inthe Medi terranean The Polaris subs replaced Jupiter missiles stationed at NATO bases in Turkey and Italy There were 30 Jupiters poised for firing from Italian soil when the decision was made to disband the bases in favor of the Polaris The Mediterranean offers a vast area where our subs can cover vital targets in Russia and be almost impercetible to enemy weapons This is the big advantage of the Polaris over the obsolete fixedsite Jupiters which presented an easy target The one big problem is lack of bases of proximity Current ly the subs are based in Holy Lock Scotland and the United States If war started these auto raccd off bases would prove far too dis tant and would greatly impair the effectiveness of the Polaris sub

NATO missiles in its boundaries So viet Premier Khrushchev has apparently been successful on that score when he threatened repeatedly to rain rockets on any soil from which NATO mis siles were launched There is no reason to believe Spain will allow the Polaris to refuel and rearm in its continental waters even though the point has not been pressed This gets us back to thc Ital ian elections Premier Fanfani has been reluctant to make any promises with respect to thc bases This is understandable since they were only recently placed on patrol there at a time when he was in the heat of the campaign which will de cide his political future i He has indicated an interest i in Polaris negotiations and ob servers believe he will provide the needed stations in which a Polaris sub could dock to re plenish her supplies This seems to be a logical conclusion since he allowed thej fixedsite Jupiters to rest on Italian launching pads with theirj tips pointed toward the Kremj lin in spite of
