Italianl Gov
Troubles,~
ROME (A)-President Giuseppe
Saragat stepped into Italy's gov-
ernment crisis yesterday in a last--
ditch effort to prevent total fail-
ure of attempts to form a new
cabinet. Failure could bring on
general elections.
For the second time since Pre-
mier Aldo Moro resigned Jan. 21,
Saragat started a round of con-
sultations with parliamentary
leaders. He acted after Moro re-
ported an impasse.
Collapse
Moro's negotiation in an at-
tempt to form a cabinet with
leaders of the four parties of his
center-left coalition have col-
lapsed.
This appeared to leave Saragat
with three choices-to ask Moro
to resume his efforts, to. send
Moro and his caretaker govern-
ment back to Parliament to seek
a vote of confidence or to dissolve
Parliament and call elections.
There was yet a fourth choice
-call on someone other than
Moro to try to form a government
-but this seemed unlikely. The
Christian. Democrats, Socialists,
Democratic Socialists and Repub-
licans in Moro's coalition support
a continuation of a center-left
government, but only with Moro
at its head. These parties gave
their support with strings at-
tached, however, and Moro has
tripped over them.
Rightist Support
The right wing in Moro's own.
A Christian Democrat party agreed
to support him again providing
its faction leader, former Premier
Mario Scelba, got a cabinet seat.
But the Socialists told Moro that
rather than accept Scelba they
would desert Moro. They' said
