ITALY'S REMARKABLE RECOVERY IS
ITALY has been through an eaUaordiaary exixrieace aad
has cone out of it with honor that the world 'should not
withhold. The final solution of the d'Annimiio and Flume
problem in good faith and with little bloodshed ii a re
markable proof of the rmdertyinr. good sense of the Italian
oeople and the essential atalnlity of the government. This
s true in spite of the fact that many things about the en
tire episode seem to the avenge American to be the aatitbe
n of good sense and of stability.
It will be recalled that at the outbreak of the gnat wax,
Italy was a member of the triple alliance with Germany
and Austria-Hungary. Both of the central empires had
powerful standing in Italy and had well organised propa
ganda forces. The central empires insisted that Italy most
loin with them, but the Italian government took the stand
that the war was aggressive, not defensive, and refused to
Italy's "neutrality" was undoubtedly influenced by the
direct threats made by Great Britain and France that Italy
ould be blockaded and attacked by sea if she joined Ger
many and Austria. Italy is exceedingly vulnerable on the
Mediterranean, and she is also economically dependent.
The central empires offered Italy ranch important terri
torial gain if she would join them. Italy's claims 'of long
u tiding in AustriaiMenitory to the north and across the
Adriatic were broad, but Austria was ready substantially
to concede them. The temptation was-great; but Italy's
fear was greater, and when the allies offered to back Italy
in her large territorial ambitions neutrality came to an
end and Italy cast in her lot with the allies.
At the trine, American sentiment was generally advene
to Italy, since her action appeared ts be dictated solely by
territorial ambitions and not ts be influenced by any
broader consideration. It is ansecessary to go ista this
question now, but it should bV emphasised that Italy's terri
torial claims had more reason and mare trae patriotic basis
than are generally credited.
Italy fought a splendid war. With her limited iwearces,
she strained herself to the utmost. Site moBBbsed several
minion men and undertook an aggressive war en a large
scale. Ho part of the long front was the field of sore)
romance in the war, if romance there be, than the ltaBaa
front. The entire world was stirred again and again by the
accounts of the transcendent heroism of the Italian treepa
m the Alps and in the marshes
Italy suffered tremendous losses, bat she virtaally pat

allies by reducing the effective enemy mart power on the
western front and narrowing the fieM of actios for whkii
the other allies were responsible, Italy received material
iid, but never any troops to speak of, from the other allies, j
Italy claims to have ended the war, when she defeated
the Austrian army and took 300,000 prisoners. Italy claims
that this was the only rnstaTiro in the war in which an
enemy army surrendered. The blow was a tremendous one.
During the war the people stood by the government wit
more tnan usual ujuluiu
ended than all the disruptive forces
more than usual unanimity. .But no
selves. Socialism and communism had
headway. What is known as Young Italy, the radical poHt
ca! elements largely of the younger generation, was strong
-r. the army and flushed with military glory. When the
government failed to get what it wanted at Paris, the gov
ernment fell. Young Italy demanded its pound of flesh,
and no excuses or arguments went far.
Italy did not demobilise her army. A terrific fead
suited between an extreme radical labor aad agrarian de
ment demanding domobQuation, aad political radicals ef a
different type demanding war against the alBes for fall
territorial satisfaction. The amy and the navy were split
wide open and a state of mutiny, mere or less latent, pre
vailed. The government was powerless aad practically ad
The wiilei of this happened ts be is Italy when dAa-r.nnr-.o
seized Fiume. It was interesting to observe the
attitude of the people generally, aad to read the comments
of the press. Open rebellion did not seem to create much
stir. Even the government press, generally conservative,
spoke in the most restrained way about the outbreak. Hasty
curious things happened. A typical instance: One night in
Turin a major formed his battalion and informed his men
that he was going to join d Annuuio; he asked how many
would like t j join him. Meat assented. Be seised railroad
cars arid a locomotive, loaded hia battalion, aad went sev
eral hundred miles across Italy without interference -and
offered his battalion to the rebel.
This sort of thing was common. Not only individa&l
officers and men in large numbers deserted army and navy
-o join d'Annmnio in Fiume, bat entire units of the army
and ships with their personnel went over to him. These
things caused surprisingly little adverse comment or disor
der anywhere in the kingdom.
The writes had aa opportunity a talk with a number
Italian officers, and fonad them strongly is sympathy
with d'Amrmmo, and hostile to the allies. When they were
asked why Italy still had 1,000,000 men, under arms nearly
a year after the armistice, they replied, The war it net
orr; Italy will have her rights." Generally speaking, the
disorders in Italy at that time rwere greatly exaggerated is
the foreign press.
Things went from bad to worse. The allies and the
league of nations proved powerless. For more than a year
Italy was divided, and a considerable part ef her amy and
navy was in open rebellion, net only against Italy hat
agamst the allies and all the world. ItaHan industrial,

extremists had demanded, bat regarded as a wise compro
mise by the majority. Much ts the surprise of the Italians
themselves, so less than that of the rest el the world, gov
ernment forces were sent against d'Annuniio's rebels and
actually fought them. The demonstration was not so im
portant in a military aense as in a moral sense, proving
that Italy had -palled herself together.
Italy, in spite of her internal trssHes, was the first of
all the great European war powers te go to work after the
war and make honest efforts to recover tost ground. She
dtd.net pass through a long period of idleness as France
did, nor did she develop radicalism of so dangerous a type
as that of Britain,
against odds all but hopeless. After one knows Italy, the
wonder is not that there is considerable domestic unrest,
bat that there is any "Italy" at all.
It is a country with which the United States sbeald dc-
vtiop mere active mtereoBrse. Italy seeds our gooes in
many Sues, and we need hers. Italy would welcome closer
relations. The latest demonstration of essential soundness
entitles her to American aid and sympathy. A shortsighted
policy ef exclusion would hart us both.
The millions of Italians in America are a valuable asset,
net a liability. In spite of Italian hostility toward presi
dent Wilson, they always distinguished between him per
sonally and the people of the United States, and never were
aati-Asericaa, evea though this government steed across
the path of their national ambitions. J(o it is time te lay
