but OIL IS A PROBLEM By GEORGE E. SOKOLSKY 1Vhen one comes to A town like Tulsa, Oklahoma, the conversation soon turns to the subject of oil. Imports from foreign countries come to nearly two times the daily production of petroleum in Oklahoma, I am told, and nobody quite likes that. One matter that concerns oil men is the prospect of flooding the market with Iranian crude oil, which has been off the market since old Mossadegh drove the British out and to which act the world adjusted. That adjustment could be upset if the Iranian oil industry comes into full production. The United States has undertaken to uphold the government of the Shah against the combination of Mossadegh and the Communist Tudeh Party. The Iranian government is financially bankrupt and must have the assistance of the United States either by subsidies or by the rehabilitation of the oil industry. Whether the British lien on the Iranian oil industry will be upheld by the United States or Iwhether some other method will be worked out, Iranian oil is likely to come back on the market sooner or later. The Independent Petroleum Association of America is to meet at Fort Worth this month to discuss the problems arising from WINNING BALL 18 NOT EASY WITH YANKEES ON DIAMOND Well, once again, for the fifth straight time, the New York Yankees have enthroned themselves as champions of the baseball world. Since nobody ever did this before, the feat confers some sort of immortality on the team and its rtianager, the venrable Professor Casey Stengel. A good many sports fans evidently are tired of getting hit in the teeth with a sackful of impressive Yankee statistics, so we'll deliver that blow fast and move on. The Yankees have now won 16 of the 20 world series they've taken part in, and their 20 American League pennants have been collected in the past 33 years, Partisans of the muscular Brooklyn Dodgers said this year would be different. They said their fence-busters would pulverize Yankee pitching. They were almost — " not quite—right. Yankee hurlers could not have felt relaxed as the parade of murderous Dodger sluggers passed through the batters' box. About the only time they could ease up was when the Dodger pitchers strode to the plate. And often even that was a mistake. No matter vhere they were, the Dodgers laced base hits all over the park. They averaged better than 10 a game. There was only one trouble. The Yanks many times forced the Brooklyn fellows to space their blows too widely. The result: in the six games the Dodgers left a veritable army of men stranded on the base paths. Surrounded by Brooklyn runners, Yank pitchers again and again summoned just enough cunning to keep the next menacing batsman from getting the devastating smash that would break the game open. Yankee outfielders spent a good deal of time rubbing their backs against the fences,! but they pulled down a lot of hard ones. ! They could not keep Brooklyn from laying the wood to the ball in habitual style. They could, and did, keep Brooklyn from scoring too much. And here the nearly perfect Yankee defense should not be overlooked. Yanks committed just one error in six games.. They showed a nice talent forjitself so far as American oil pro- snuffing out rallies with snappy fielding plays. (duction is concerned. Nor should it be ignored that the Yankees, to a certain extent, beat the Dodgers at their own game. In two of the affairs, Dodgers piled up a total of 12 runs, yet they lost them both. Yankee triumphs of 9 to 5 and 11 to 7 told a significant story. The New Yorkers didn't connect so frequently, but when they did, it more often than not meant the whole ball game. Before the struggle began, cool heads said pitching would be crucial, and in the end, of course, it was. In two victories, the Yanks found their hurling almost wholly satisfactory. In the other two, it was good for important stretches. It was even good in one of their two defeats. The Dodgers simply could not say the same. Between now and next spring, some enterprising chap may show up at the XL S. Patent Office with a miracle device known as a Yankee-stopper. But more than likely he won't. It doesn't really require a miracle. All it requires is timely hitting, air-tight defense and good pitching in the clutch/ This combination seems awfully hard to come by when the Yankees share the field with you. Washington NEW AGREEMENT WITH SPAIN SPECIFIES ECONOMIC REFORM Fulton Lmh* Jr. 9 (Copyright, 1953, King Features .Lindbergh Baby ^ kidnaping case. Syndicate, Inc.) toJLY WASHINGTON, Oct, S There By PETER EDS ON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON (NEA) — Most public attention has been focused on the military-aid agreements just signed by the United States and Spain, but the economic agreement may be no less important if it means anything, and if the Spanish government carries out its terms. One reason the economic agreement may not mean much is that this is more or less the standard economic agreement which the United States requires all coun tries to sign in exchange for Amer ican aid. But in this case, the things it would require Spain to do are things the Spanish government has never done be/ore. And if it does half of them, it will offer the poor, beaten-down Spanish people the first opportunity they have had in a long time to improve their sorry not. Spain has now, at long last, agreed to stabilize its currency, establish a valid rate of exchange, and balance its budget as soon as practicable to restore confidence in the monetary system. None of these conditions has existed for years. i i- « * i !

Competition is to be encouraged, productivity promoted, and barriers to international trade removed. As if in exchange for these almost revolutionary concessions, the U. S. has agreed to furnish technical assistance to Spain, to help it increase productivity and stabilize its economy, wherever such aid is requested and to the extent U. S. laws permit. To grant these concessions may have cartsed the Spanish government leaders much soul searching. This may explain why it took two years of negotiation. Economically as well as militarily, these agreements represent a radical change from past Spanish government policy. Throughout World War II and since then, Spain has tried to be a neutral—aloof from foreign entanglements. Spanish Never Stated Terms in Long Talks It is doubtful if Spain got everything she wanted. The Spanish negotiators, led by Minister of Commerce Arburua and General Vigon, never stated their demands in terms of dollars. But it is States were directly involved in the recent Iranian revolution which brought the Shah of Iran back to his hereditary throne. The full and true story of events leading up to the overthrow of Premier Mohammed Mossadegh and of the actual revolt, still are known only to a comparatively few persons. But fragmentary reports seeping back from the oil- rich but money-poor Middle Eastern empire make it clear that it involved all the cloak-and-dagger elements of the best of E. Phillips Oppenheim. The key public figure, of course, was the Shah himself. But grapevine tales make it evident that behind the scenes, equally important roles were played by a small group of Americans and by the Shah's twin sister, the colorful, competent and strong-willed Princess Ashraf. Among the Americans who appear to have been involved to a greater or lesser degree are Loy Henderson, our ambassador to Tehran; Allen W.

Cut Allowables Already some of the oil states have cut the allowables, by which term is meant the amount of oil that may be taken from the ground each month. Oklahoma, Louisiana and Texas are cutting allowables by 35,000 to 85,000 bar* reJs daily for October. Kansas has instituted a 10-day shutdown of oil wells beginning Oc. 15. Oil is an irreplaceable natural resource which has become essential to our civilization. Estimates about how soon we shall run out of oil have proved to be unfounded prophecies. Everytime a frightening article on the subject is published, a new oil field is found or American engineers learn how to dig deeper or how to bring oil out of the ground more efficiently. Therefore, we are not dealing with an immediate lack of oil deposits. On the other hand, it would seem stupid to waste any natural resource and it would be wasteful if the price of oil were forced down to where it would be given away for practically nothing. During a war period, such commodities as oil and steel are ex- POWEH OF PRINTED WORD IS POTENT People still like to read.

I traction of Deduction for two The story of America, with its risks and gains and tastes, could well be written using advertisements as historical basis.

At first* the retraction is resisted because it may involve some unemployment, possibly a reduction in wages, surely a reduction in taxes. But the economics of the situation will assert themselves: When production exceeds consumption, production must be reduced. Governments Determine Volume This situation is complicated by the fact that we live in an era when government controls determine the nature of the market. The Doctor Says EVERYONE IS HANDICAPPED FOR CERTAIN KINDS OF EMPLOYMENT By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. Written for NEA Service October 4-10 was named as National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week. The purpose of the action was to focus attention on the desirability of employing those persons who are physically handicapped to increase the nation's productive capacity and to give the handicapped person a better place in our society. This was the ninth annual observance of this special week and it has doubtless been successful in its principal objective of stimulating the employment of the physically handicapped. Some plain speaking on this subject, it seems to me, is in order. The so-called physically handicapped person is not really in a separate class of society. A physical handicap is really only relative, since everyone should have the kind of job he or she can do to the satisfaction of the employer. Everyone is "handicapped" in one sense or another: the middle-aged man is handicapped for professional football; a young man . •>• . 1 _ „c equipment and modernization of the Spanish armed forces. And they wanted more economic aid without any strings attached. Though Spaniards are notoriously shrewd bargainers, in this case they got neither of these requests. The American negotiators, under Maj.-Gen A. W. Kissner of the Air Force and George F. Train of Foreign Operations Administration, proved they were good, too. They did not commit the U.

On the contrary, the stories about the revolt would make it appear that we have learned a lot, that we have gone far toward eradicating the do-nothing wishy-washiness of the Truman-Acheson regime.

Of this, $141 million will be direct military aid and $85 million will be defense support, which is disguised economic aid. The cost of the military base building will be additional, but Spain will contribute by supplying all land free and pesetas equivalent to 90 per cent of U. S. dollar aid. And there will be on Spanish taxes on tionalist Mossadegh. Briefly, the story leading up to the revolution might begin back in late May, when Mossadegh wrote President Eisenhower asking financial help for his country and hinting broadly that if it was not J forthcoming immediately, he would be forced into closer cooperation with the Communists. Mr. Eisenhower let that one cool for a month before he replied with a flat "no, thanks.' 1 From the hind- MARCHING? FUN?

For instance, countries which need dollars will flood the market with commodities with the object of getting dollars. This problem is further complicated by the fact that must currencies are "soft" money with which the governments arrange to pay their workers, but when they export the commodities they produce, they sell for "hard" currency, that is American dollars. They therefore undersell not because they are more efficient producers but because it pays (hem to get dollars at almost any cost.
