Cassino Bitter Over U. S. Aid;

This dreary little town, lying at the
foot of a ruined hill, has been of
world importance twice in Its life—
once when hundreds of American
boys died taking it from the Ger

constructive is going on. Brick
houses are being built with Ameri

But inside, Cassino shows possi

Once' the people there were religi

fluence of the abbey, like its walls,
seems to be crumbling. Among the
hundreds lounging jobless in the
streets some talk openly in favor of
the men who were condemned by
the Pope as the “enemies of that
which is most sacred.”

Julie said the papers carried
stories of American aid being cut
oft if Italy goes Communist April
The citizens of the town greeted
this announcement with bitterness.
Even while houses are being built
there with American money, they
claim they have seen no convincing
evidence of real help.
"How can they cut it off? There
hasn’t been any,” Julie said. He
used to keep a gas station, but now
he lives off a small plot of ground
near a shack he built from broken
bricks and wood fragments,
i "America, she says she will give
but it takes so long,” Antonio said.
"When the American soldiers were
here they had more to eat, right in
the midst of the bombs, than any
one else had. Why doesn’t Ameri
ca feed us fast again?”
This lice-bitten little man, dark
from standing in the sun doing
nothing, put his finger on a promi
nent question in Italy. The people
do not know how much America
has given already. Houses may be
built, ships may arrive but until
they see food trucks draw up in
front of their doors as they used to
do for American soldiers, many
Italians do not seem to believe in
American aid.

James C. Dunn, met the five hun

as has met many others. He told
the dock workers in a speech re
ported by many Italian papers how
much America is sending to Italy.
Premier Alcide de Gasperi speaks
nearly every day, mentioning Amer
ican help.
But the. Communists counter by
asking how long Italians think the
aid will go on if the democrats win
and America is no longer worried
about possible Communists airbases
in Sicily.
"Before the election, maybe a
truck, eh?” Julie sneered. “After
the election, only posters promising
help—we know America.” Antonio
laughed with Julie.
