ITALIAN GOVT. THREATENED
Socialists hit new abortion law

ROME (P) - Socialists threat-
ened yesterday to' topple the
fragile 55-day-old Christian-
Democrat cabinet over the ex-
plosive issue of abortion and
possibly pave the way for a
Communist role in governing
Italy.
The United States has con-
sistently opposed any such role
for the Communists because of
Italy's strategic position in the
North Atlantic Treaty Organ-
ization. Some U. S. officials
hinted that there would be eco-
nomic reprisals if the Com-
munists are let into the govern-
ment.
THE SOCIALISTS, the third'
largest party, have the power
to bring down the government
and force a general election.
Calling for an immediate,
meeting with Christian Demo-
crat leaders, the Socialists said
the only alternative to early
elections would be a national
emergency government with a
policy-making role for the Com-
munists.
Premier Aldo Moro, a Chris-
tian Democrat, has been oper-
ating with a minority govern-
ment only by the good will of
the Socialists, who left the rul-
ing coalition but have abstain-
ed on votes of confidence.

over abortion.
The Christian Democrats,
spurred by the Vatican, joined1
the right-wing Italian Social
Movement party last week tol
pass an amendment restricting
abortions to rape and therapeu-
tic cases. This led to a weekend!
demonstration by more than'
50,000 feminists attacking Moro
and the Vatican.
Abortions are illegal in Italy3
under a 1930 Fascist law, and
the Vatican recently called
abortions "a regression to bar-'
barity."
THE PRESSURES on the Mo-
ro government were compound-
ed by scheduled negotiations to-l
day between the government
and three big unions. The coun-
try is in the grip of a monetary
crisis and rising labor unrest!
typified by a series of scatter-
ed strikes yesterday.
Lori Fortuna, Socialist leader.
of the proabortion movement in
the House of Deputies, said
parliament should bed isbanded
by April 21-22 and new gener-
al elections held before the end
of June, a year earlier than
scheduled.
"To prolong the agony of this
legislature means to let prob-
lems rot," he said. "In any
case, the grave measures that
a serious government must
adopt cannot be decided in a

confused climate."
EARLY elections would have
to be called by President Gio-
vanni Leone, but he would have
little other choice if the gov-
ernment falls.
The Communists favor a free
abortion policy, but they have
moved cautiously so as not to
jeopardize chances for a "his-
torical compromise" that would
give them a share of power in
the government for the first

munist administration decided
to hire about 2,000 jobless as
street cleaners and office aides
as over 1,000 unemployed con-
tinued a two-day occupation of
the local employment office.

SAN FRANCISCO (A') - Lead-'
ers of striking city employes
yesterday revived threats of
trying to shut down this city
of 677,000 as commuters strag-
gled in to work because of the
crippled public transit system
and a separate strike involving
a taxi company.
Municipal strike leaders said
AFL - CIO chieftains pledged
yesterday morning to support
a general strike that could vir-
tually cut off access to the city,
by closing San Francisco Inter-
national Airport, the Golden
Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge.
THE EXECUTIVE committee
of the San Francisco Labor
Council unanimously approved
a motion pledging escalation,

cooperation and information to-
ward the goal of "complete sup-
port by all AFL-CIO unions to
the workers presently on strike
against the city and county of
San Francisco."
Jack Crowley, executive sec-
retary of the Labor Council,
said a date for the general
strike would be established "in
coordination with all sectors of
the labor movement of San
Francisco."
Crowley said that in addition
to public facilities, a general
strike would affect such estab-
lishments as hotels and restaur-
ants.
LABOR LEADERS and a city
negotiator met for about seven
hours Monday before recess-
ing.
