W) — Iran'i nationalist premier ihreat- ened today to throw Britain's oil refinery technicians out ol Iran unlest the British resume Anglo- Iranian oil negotiations witliin 15 day*. The Iranian senate gave Premier Mohammed Mossadegh a vote of confidence on this "get tough" policy, and he will ask a similar vote in the lower house tomorrow. The ultimatum faced the British with the prospect at reopening talks on proposals they already consider inacceptable or having their technician,'; who have remained at the Abartan refinery tossed out of Iran. (In London, British government officials said BriSain is ready at any time to resume oil talks with Iran It the Iranian government has any "worthwhile" counter - proposals", but Britain has received no new proposals which could form the basis of an agreement.) No Compromise Indicated Mossadegh's speech gave no indication that he planned any compromise In his nationalization program. Apparently he stHl opposes the British demand that a British general manager be Installed for the oilfields and refinery, working under supervision of the new National Iranian Oil Company. He said only that he would be willing to have an operating board of directors Irom "neutral countries, plus Iranian experts. Mossadegh appealed for a vole after saying he would cancel the residence permits of 300 technicians remaining at the key oil refinery city of Abadan unless the Britlsl government agreed to resume negotiations. British to Hold Control Following the breakdown of negotiations, Britain made clear that she would retain her control of the giant British-built Abndan refinery until a settlement was reached Earlier Britain said she would take "necessary measures" to protecl British citizens In Iran. Mossadegh said today talks shouh he reopened on the proposals Iran submitted Aug. 22, when the talk broke down. Britain abruptly halted the talk on way to produce and sell Iran ian oil Jointly under Iran's nation alizatlon law after Mossadegh re Jected British proposals that thi oil production be under Britlsl management. Stokes Refuted Proposal : In turn British Mission Chle Richard Stokes turned down i three-point proposal presented b; Mossadegh. It said: - I—Former customers would be given priority to buy oil In the ame amounts they had as custom- •rs of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company.

(£>>—An order to permit all automobile manufacturers to rai^e prices on new cars by Oct. l was being rushed today Tor early Issuance. At the same time, price control officials hinted that because of ihanges made by Congress In the Defense Production Act the car- makers probably can be expected to ask further increases in the near future. Such price boosts would be lasscd on to buyers, although per- :iaps not all at once. There was no indication whether the manufacturers would get the full nine to ten per cent average increase requested. One official expressed doubt the boost might run Lliat much. Price Director Michael V. DlSalle put the hurvy-up tag on the auto price order yesterday, tfe told his aides to have the regulation ready for his'signature if possible before leaves late in the day on a southern speaking trip. Oonllnuid from pag« 1 considered. Acheson denied the request. The Kremlin's chief delegate, un- millng Andrei Gromyko, grimly heard the President's challenege at the conference opening last night. 'The treaty now before us offers more than lalk of peace." Mr. Truman said emphatically. "It offers action for peace. Tills conference will show, therefore, who seeks to make peace and who seeks to prevent ft; who wishes to put an end to war, and who wishes to continue it," Gromyko, who had joined briefly in the swelling applause of historic assemblage when Mr. Trumar rose to speak, sat with folded hands throughout the talk. Later he told reporters he had no comment. Still later at an American reception for all the delegates, the Soviet deputy foreign minister shook hands with the American Pres! dent and spoke briefly with somi of the diplomats present. To one of these, Kenneth Young er of Britain, he expressed thi belief that the conference will las month. "After all," '"Time isn't Deadline Effort Made Every effort was being made to for cars.

One Officer of Price Stabilization official told newsmen the permission to raise car prices will be Industry-wide, When or how much the car manufacturers will raise prices up to the limit allowed probably will be up to each Individual company, but the official said the order would enable them to make 'adjustments" before the end of his month.

It will ,ake Into account increases In costs )i raw materials nnd factory labor since the Korean War started and allow raises based on these factors.

Mac Arthur Given Tribute For the remaking of Japan he a Id trl feu U to the "o u t-s land in g eadershlp" of Gen, Douglas MacArthur, whom he ousted as occu- ation and far Eastern commander ast April over Korean issues, and MacArthur's successor, Gen. rtathew B.

Again applause broke out. World Given Warning But the sections of his speech in which th$ President placed his leavlest emphasis, speaking slowb jind in a loud voice, were those dealing with present world dangers and American steps to meet them ncluding" new defense treaties In the Pacific. He had, perhaps deliberately, set :hc scene for this theme when he ,old a Democratic Party luneheoi meeting yesterday that the United States Is building "fantastic" new weapons which could wipe out civilization In a neto war. Mr. Truman added: "I hope we will never have to use them." Last night he told the confer ence -"unfortunately, today, the world Is faced with new threats aggression.

At that point he departed Iron fe prepared text and «ald: "Thert re thugs among nations just as here are among individuals." In this situation Mr. Truman aid, It is necessary for unarmed apan to protect Itself against ag- ressloh, and it has requested "to nter into a bilateral treaty (with :ie U, £5.) for Japan's immediate ecurity." That pact would provide or American forces in Japan after he peace treaty ends the occupa- lon. Mr. Truman also held out frankly he prospect of Japanese rearmament in association "with the defense forces of other nations In he area." He added "the Japanese ontributlon, by itself, would not onstitute an offensive threat." "At the present time " Mr. Trti- nan said with heavy emhasi*, "the 'acific area is gravely affected by outright aggression and by the threat of further armed attack." In tins connection the President declared it is important to bring Japan under the principles and within the protection "of the mutual obligations of United Nations members."
