Prof. Kish Gages Ital y's
Election Trends on Map
Across the Atlantic Italy prepares for its election, but here on
campus Prof. George Kish of the geography department has Italy's
future right at his finger tips.
On a large map in his office, Prof. Kish has traced the strength
of the major parties in Italy, reducing Italian voting habits to black,
white and shaded sections.
* * * * -
PROF. KISH first became interested in Italy following the 1948
election. He spent a year "in that land of regional loyalty" studying
the voting habits of the country and the surrounding islands.
Commenting on the 1948 election, Prof. Kish said, "Premier
De Gasperi headed up a government coalition consisting of the
Christian Democrats, the Communists and their followers and
the Social Democrats. Christian k

Out of Country
WASHINGTON- (P) -A cocky
stranger strode into a New York
home last week and asked a father
to make this almost impossible
1) Turn Communist spy and be-
tray his adopted country, the Unit-
ed States, hoping this might save
his two children in Red Romanian
Romania who were pleading for
his help.
2) Remain true to this nation,
and take a chance on the safety
of the youngsters he hasn't seen
in six years.

his "immediate departure" from
this country.

"IT'S a STRANGE story-almost
like a movie," Georgescu describ-
ed, as if he still couldn't believe
it happened to him.
Georgescu, 49, is a petroleum en-
gineer. In 1937 he became head of
the Romanian affiliate of the
Standard Oil Co. of New Jersey.
After the war, the company
ran into the tremendous prob-
blem of rebuilding an industry
shattered by the war. And, even
as early as 1947, it was hard for
American business men to get in
and out of Romania.
So it was decided to bring Geor-
gescu to this country for confer-
THEN THE bottom fell out of
Georgescu's world.
Romania's government began
moving in on the oil industry. His
friends and business colleagues
were being arrested. It was im-
possible to return.
Early last Wednesday, a
stranger called and identified
himself as Chris Zambeti, first
Secretary of the Romanian Pop-
ular Republic Legation in Wash-
"If you want to see your child-
ren," Georgescu quoted Zambeti as
saying, "this can be arranged and
I am proposing to you the follow-
ing deal. You may see your child-
ren within a year if you will ac-
cept to collaborate with us."
Georgescu's answer to the ques-
tion was a hard one for the father
but he remained loyal to his coun-
try. (Georgescu was naturalized
last year.) His reply to t1e Ro-
manian diplomat was "NO!"

last election reveals the reasons
for a prominence of sector voting
in the Italian mainland.
According to Prof. Kish's analy-
sis the southern area casts fifteen
to twenty percent of the MSI vote.
In disfavor with the present
coalition, they are cooperating
with the Communists in the
hope that they not the Reds
will eventually capture Rome.
In Northern Italy and the Po
Valley and in Southeastern Italy
near the Adriatic, tradition has
been the important factor in vot-
ing, Prof. Kish said. There has
been a strong agrarian Socialist
movement since 1880. They have
even yet to completely break away
from the Fascism chains which
binded them, he added.
