Secrecy to Help The secrecy was to help the sub- committeemen fulfill the recommendation of Vice Adm. C. Turner Joy, chief U.N, delegate, to meet "around rather than across" the table. Joy suggested there would be better opportunity of progress toward ending the shooting in Korea If the problem were tackled without the speech making that has marked Kaesong negotiations. This is exactly what happened.

They have offered to give up nationalized installations of the British-owned Anglo- Iranian Oil Company, but would form British companies to market- Iranian oil, manage the Abadan refinery and direct oil field work under Iranian supervision. The Iranians, on the other hand, appear set in their determination to carry out the nationalization law under which British oil workers remaining here would become employ- es of Iran's own agency—the Iranian National Oil Company.
