ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, AUGUST 3, 1951 FOURTEEN PAGES British Oil Mission Leaves for Tehran *To Resume Parley LONDON, Aug. 3. (AP)—Britain's cabinet mission to Iran left by p!an« Jor Tehran today to begin new negotiations toward settling the bitter dispute over nationalization of Iranian oil. SINGLE COPIE* FIVI CENTS 4 Ted-Up' Poles Flee In Makeshift Plane STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Aug. 1. <AP)—Four young Pol*, one * woman, landed their bullet-riddled, makeshift plane in southern Sweden today and told of a dramatic escape from Red Poland amid gunfire. They asked asylum, saying Congress Gets Armed Services 'Air r Wrangle House Group Asked To Study Problem Of Ground Support WASHINGTON, Aug. 3. W> ( — Congress has been asked to settle what is described fay a House member as a critical wrangle in the armed services over air support of ground troops. Rep. Cole (R-NY) proposed yesterday that the House Armed Ser^•Ices' Committee study the prob- W^m as soon as possible. He told the House there can be no doubt, that there exists very definite inter-service antagonism and basic disagreement on the important problem of the role oi tactical air support. In fact, he added, there is serious disagreement within the Air Force Itself. Cole advocated the return of close air support operations to Che Army. He said that in taking this command from the Army and giving it to the Air Force, Congress went too far in its armed forces unification program. This statement recalled an earlier assertion by Chairman Vinsoir (D- Ga> of the House Armed Services Committee that he had in mind a review of the workings of military unification. In close air support, aircraft use bombs, rockets and guns against the enemy immediately opposing friendly troops. Such operations require accuracy and other specialized skills. In an exchange of formal notes it, Tehran, Britain and Iran today agreed to ihe round table discussions. Britain accepted the "principle of nationalisation of the oil industry in Iran." The leader of the British mls- .ion, Richard R. Stokes, lord privy seal, told newsmen at the airport: "I'm quite sure that the conversations will be conducted in an atmosphere of what i would describe as the utmost goodwill. As long as we do that, we should find some solution which will be acceptable to everyone."' But he added that "It doesn't mean everybody will get everything they want." To Arrive Tomorrow The group — including Stokes, lour additional government officials and about 10 others counting clerical assistants—expects to arrive In Tehran tomorrow evening. Stokes said he hopes to see Iranian Premier Mohammed Mossadegh Sunday morning, at which time the negotiations are expected to begin. Iran agreed In the exchange of notes that the way in which the government takes over the vast oil resources — heretofore exclusively exploited by the British-owned Anglo-Iranian Oil Company—"shall be subject to negotiations between t he tv;o governjue nt s." Previously Iran had declared the dispute was a matter between Iran and the oil company and would not accept British government negotiator. Talks to Be in Palace The conferences will take place in the summer palace of the ministry of foreign affairs, 15 miles north of the Iranian capital. Stokes expressed optimism, adding: 'T don't: believe there is anything that can't be solved, given the goodwill of both sides. I hope that the mission will he a success."

(AP)—Commercial planffi lifted 90 tons of Berlin •xport products to West Germany in the last-^4 hours in an expanding effort to defeat Russian controls which have curbed overland shipments. This more than doubled the tonnage of two days ago, and the three participating airlines said they were awaiting the arrival of mort freight planes to increase it jtill further. Allied transport officials here would not speculate how big the "baby airlift" might grow. Unofficial quarters talked of a goal of 200 tons dnily but everybody hdped the Russians would soon back down.

The Zeitung said it was all "a profiteering scheme" which would be unnecessary, if West Berlin firms met, Soviet demands to present certificates of origin for their products. The Communists claim that such certificates would show that most West Berlin products are manufactured from materials "smuggled out oJ (Soviet) East Germany." The West has refused to deliver such certificates and. in nn attempt to make the Russians retreat on the issue, has stopped trade between West and East Germany.
