PAGE BIGHT BLYTHEVJL1.E, (AKK.) COURJKR NEWS SATURDAY, AUGUST 2B, 1W1 Iran Warns People to Expect NewEconomicTrouble,Taxes TEHRAN, Iran, Aug. 2S. <AP) — The Iranian government called on lt« people today to face new economic troubles. Including higher tax»e, because of the collapse of oil talk* with Britain. Deputy Premier Hossein Fatlmi told » news conference "economic difficulties" are likely while Iran tries to sell the oil It took over from the Anglo-Iranian oil company. He »cknowledged the loss of oil royal- tie* has hurt and said the government Is considering new export-Import duties and higher taxes on luxuries. Fatlmi made the statement when he released a letter from Premier Mohammed Mossadegh expressing a desire for new negotiations with Britain on Iran's terms. Mossadegh gave the letter to W Averell Harriman last night before the U. S. envoy left Tehran. Harriman stopped in Yugoslavia today for a visit with Premier Marshal Tito »nd expects to fly to London Sunday for further oil talks. Iran "Could Not Aocept" The Mossadegh letter said Iran could not accept Britain's proposals for settling the dispute because they "lacked & due consideration for the economic and political independence of Iran." Mossadegh said he hopes Britain will give careful consideration to the three-point counter-proposal he handed Lord Privy Seal Richard R. Stokes Wednesday when the talks broke down. Stokes, who arrived in London yesterday, said the counter-proposal was mainly ft restatement cf Iran's nationalization law booting the AIOC out, and not acceptable to Britain. A major point of the British proposal Is that British technicians will stay on the job only under direction of a British general manager. Britain has accepted nationalization Ir: principle. Tor* Speak Ajain Mossadegh's Iranian Toee are speaking up again, now that the talks with Britain have collapsed * second time. Trouble threatens in the political field. Elections are coming up this fall and there will be a battle for control of parliament. The frail, stubborn-willed nationalist has staked Ills popularity refusing an oil deal with Britain despite almost certain economic troubles. But flu breakdown of talks with Britain this week means more than money trouble for the man who won power by nationalising property oi the Influential Anglo-Iranian OH Company. Enontai Spurred Collapse of the negotiations has •purred Mossadegh's enemies, ranging from moderates to wealthy landowners In parliament. They fear the governing national front wil make big gains in the November- December election If Mossadegh controls the ballot boxes. The growing political strife, unemployment and business slump is bound, to stir up Iran as a result of the loss of oil revenue—source of half the government's budget. Only the underground CommU' nlst Tudeh Party and Russia, Iran's northern neighbor, stand to gain Western diplomats fear a continuing oil crisis. They feel the social unrest will soiten Iran for Communism. "Once the Hero of Hour" Nationalizing AIOC operation: here made Mossadegh the hero of the hour in a country which blames most of its troubles on the real and fancied intrigue of the British company. Any parliament deputy voting against oil nationalization would be committing suicide as surely as voting against the Koran (the Moslem Bible). But so far. the nationalistic premier has not made good on his promise of a "life of ease and comfort" for Iran's 15,000.000 persons now they control their own oil riches. Politicians and newspapers who backed Mossadegh's oil takeover are asking for the premised rewards. Tlie newspaper Dad ((justice) expressed the growing opposition sentiment this way after the talks broke down: Results Outlined "After three months and 20 days, the only results of Mossadegh's policy has been the closing ot the Abadan refinery, misunderstanding betv.oen Ir^n and the bis powers, and the danger o( a full econcmic crisis nnd bankruptcy." Desperate attacks—even leading to an attempt to deleni Mossa- degh's government on a vote of confidence m parliament—nuiy be expected within a month.

It was read over the armed services radio. Then the Allies tried repeatedly before contacting the Reds over radio telephone nt Kaesong to Inform them the message would be delivered at Pannnmjom. Preceding the Allied representatives, four correspondents and four photographers went by Jeep to the outpost.

He walked to the middle of the highway and confronted Colonel Chang. Two U. N. interpreters accompanied Lee. Chanpr was flanked by another Red officer, a Colonel T.-ml. Lee started to speak In English. "Speak Korean," Chang barked. "We understand Korean." "It's Up to Me" "I can talk in any Innguage I want to," Lee retorted. "It's up to me what I speak." Then, continuing in English, Lee snapped: "I am ordered by (vice! Admiral (C. Turner) Joy (senior U .N. negotiator) to deliver this message from Genenil Ridgway to (North Korcaii premier) Kim I] Sung and Peng Teh-Hua! (commander of the Chinese lieds In Korea,) Lee's statement then was Interpreted Into Korean by newly promoted Lt. Richard Underwood, of Seoul, son of a missionary. It was translated in turn into Chinese by-Warrant Officer Kenneth Wu, of Plttsburg, Calif. Chang took the envelope without saying a word.

The boss, a big bruiser, came over to help me out, and grabbed them both in armlocks around their necks and started to drag them out, one bruiser under each arm like a man carrying two big sacks. One of the men started to get, so the boss released one of hem and swung under to hit the other one. who ducked. I was lean- ng over like a big goof, and the punch caught me on the Jaw. I went out, staggering back against the wall. When I came to, some big hick was standing over me screaming, knowed I knowed him. I knowed I knowed him when I seen him. It was that waiter's rig that fooled me. The minute he went out I knowed I knowed him from them cowboy pictures." It's been rough.
