Former Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger, in an interview released
yesterday, predicts "grave conse-
quences for the entire West" if "the
slide toward communism" in Italy is
not halted.
The interview, to be broadcast by
NBC Friday night, was shown to
newsmen as Italy's 18-month-old
Christian Democratic government is
engaged in a fight for survival, faced
with a Communist demand for direct
participation.
A COMMUNIST role. in the Italian
government, he said, would create a
situation in which the West would
find itself "with an ally which is at
best unreliable and which may even
take the Soviet side in a crisis."
Christian Democrat 1 e a d e r s
reached their decision shortly before
midnight. Earlier party secretary
Benigno Zaccagnini said the Com-
munists and the Christian Democrats
have different ideas on how best to
serve the country.
He said the current difficulties can

be solved only by all groups stick
ing to a social and economic program
agreed last July.
COMMUNIST Sen. Paolo Bufalini,
a member of the party secretariat,'
said only a government including.
Communists can deal effectively
with rising political violence and.
other national problems. "Every day
that passes, the situation becomes'
more entangled and dramatic," he
said.
Bufalini added that as the situation,
worsens, conditions favor "serious
and inadmissible external pressures
and blackmail against our national
independence."
The Communists and other leftists;
have complained recently about the'
prospects of U.S. interference, citing
the recall of U.S. ambassador Rich-'
ard Gardner for consultations.
In Washington, State Department
spokesmen said the United States has
no intention of interfering in Italy's
internal affairs, but is concerned it
the prospect of possible Communist
participation in the government.

Asked by the president if the
proposed $25 billion tax cut is still im-
portant, Schultze replied, "That's right
... the point was always that this was a
tax cut that wasn't to rescue an
economy that was on the verge, of
recession or stagnation, but a rather
sober way to keep it going in the
future."

race with these candidates cutting
each other up," Bracy said.
"I look forward to debating all of
the candidates - at any place, or
time," he added. "And I'll enjoy
every minute of it."
Bracy said the only candidate who
he feels is a threat to his candidacy is
Levin. "If Levin doesn't make it," he
maintains, "I'll win the election."
BRACY expects the race to cernter
around domestic issues rather than
national concerns.
"There is an absence of world
issues," he said. "It is my prediction
that the election will be fought on
domestic issues."
Bracy said he is especially inter-
ested in urban problems, such as
sub-standard housing and wide-'
spread unemployment, particularly
among young blacks.
"I AM going to try to get more
money for the urban areas," he said.
"We have some real problems that,
must be taken care of.
Besides the urban problems, Bracy'
said he is concerned with economy,
mandatory retirement, mass trans-
portation, and the further develop-'y
ment of energy sources.
"We must find our legitimate ener-_
gy needs and the development of
alternative energy sources," Bracy
said.
Bracy said he thinks the Carter ad- M
ministration has done a good- job in
its first year, especially in providing
the people with an open goverr-;
ment.
"I think the manner, style, and air
of openness in the administration is
refreshing," Bracy said.
