Gets American Punch
MARHAM, England. March 22—
W—The first four of 70 Super-

BONN, Germany, March 22—</P)
—The West German government
today proposed an election In both
East and West Germany, designed
to unify the entire country.
The election would be for a
constituent assembly empowered to
draw up a constitution for all Ger-
many. The voting would be super-
vised by all four occupation powers.
The proposal grew out of a re-
cent suggestion by American High
Commissioner John J. McCloy that
free and democratic elections
should be held throughout Ger-
many, including the Russian zone.
McCloy's suggestion was sup-
ported by the British high com-
missioner, Sir Brian Robertson.
The German proposal expressed
confidence the French also would
back such a plan and said the Rus-
sians have made it clear on sev-
eral occasions that they too want
a unified Germany.
McCloy suggested the election
be held Oct. 15—the date the Com-
munist-led east zone republic will
name a new parliament. Today the
Christian Democratic union, larg-
est non-Communist party in the
zone, yielded to Communist pres-
sure and agreed to a single party
ticket In the election that will as-

ROME, March 22—(JP)—The Ital-
ian government met a Communist
strike challenge today with a mass-
ing of police strength that put 3,000
persons under arrest In Rome and
rigidly suppressed demonstrations
throughout the country.
There appeared to be only scat-
tered violence as a result of the
12-hour nationwide general strike

ian confederation of labor.
The call was issued after a clash
last night between police and farm-
hands carrying red banners in a
village In central Italy. Two farm-
hands were killed.
The confederation Is protesting
government proposals to Increase
the country’s police force and au-
thorize bans on political demonstra-

several persons in recent days.
The police In a show of strength
unequalled In more than a year ar-
rested hundreds who took part in
nUnor clashes. Among those held In
Rome was Adele Bei, woman Com-
munist senator who led a group
carrying red flags.
Challenge Is Met
The government met the 12-hour
Communist challenge to Its author-
ity by sending 144,000 armed police
and carabinieri into the big cities
to preserve order.
Powerful police forces on guard
in Rome used fire hoses effectively
to drive back crowds attempting to
stage demonstrations in the squares.
Public rallies were banned for the
day in all big cities.
In Rome and elsewhere Commu-
nist strikers stoned streetcars run-
ning in defiance of the strike, over-
