The article reports that Rome and France are getting into controversy as they are evolving their own peculiar techniques of McCarthyism. Numerous candidates from France were not allowed to take the qualifying examinations of the National School of Administration on the ground that they were reported to have Communist views or links. The central issue in the Italian controversy concerns the Republican Italian Government's sticking to the letter of old Fascist laws. Thus, the effect of McCarthyism, of thought-control censorship in Italy is to help the very persons it is supposed to hurt, i.e., the Communists.
