    Background: DANILO DOLCI, THE ITALIAN SOCIAL REFORMER, IS NOW IN THE MIDDLE OF A 10-DAY FAST IN AN ATTEMPT TO DRAW THE ATTENTION OF THE ITALIAN GOVERNMENT TO THE EMPLOYMENT AND SOCIAL SITUATION IN SICILY.

    AT ROCCAMENA, SIGNOR DOLCI AND A BRITISH SYMPATHISER, PETER MOULE, WERE TODAY (WEDNESDAY) ORDERED BY A DOCTOR TO TAKE A LITTLE SUGAR WITH THE ONE-AND-A-HALF-LITRES OF WATER THEY ARE ALLOWING THEMSELVES EACH DAY. THEY BEAN THE HUNGER STRIKE LAST SATURDAY, AND HAVE PROMISED THAT THEY WILL NOT EAT UNTIL MONDAY - TEN DAYS FASTING.

    EXPERTS SAY THE POVERTY-STRIKEN AREA AROUND ROCCAMENA COULD BE MADE FOR MORE PRODUCTIVE BY CAREFUL IRRIGATION. BUT FIRST A DAM WOULD BE NECESSARY TO PROVIDE A CONSTANT SUPPLY OF WATER TO 15,000 HECTARES OF LAND NOW LYING IDLE. BY DRAWING ATTENTION FROM A SYMPATHETIC NATION BY A FAST, SIGNOR DOLCI HOPES THAT FUNDS WILL BE SENT TO SICILY.
