BlyfhcvWc (Ark.) Courier News — Tuesday, December 5, 1%7 — Page NEW YORK (AP) save Santa Claus! For some years there has! been an adult conspiracy afoot to dump the oily Old Saint in NOMADS roam southern Iran today, as they have for centuries, but the landscape has changed. The Iranian government built this S5.5 million cement plant using .$1.3 million in U.S. assistance. Facilities like this one have cut the price of cement in half and stimulated construction throughout Jh^country. NEW AND OLD are combined in Iran. The Kara] Dam, left, provides electrical power and water to serve industry and public needs in the capital city of Tehran. Progress, however, has not brushed aside the-age-old Persian rug- making craft. At right, rugs are washed and sun-dried in the traditional way. U.d.Miu* $605 Million $225 Million in Repayable A Excluding Military & Food Aid SINCE 1952, Iran's government has invested $3 billion of its own money in development. U.S. economic assistance during the same period (excluding military and food aid) amounted to $605 million, ?225 million in the form of repayable loans. EGGS are inoculated at Iran's modern Razi Institute in the process of producing rabies vaccine.

Santa Clans has) • — never so much as asked Lyndon plain Christmas has become terribly overcommercializcd,. has lost its real meaning, and blame it all on the big fat fellow with .he white whiskers. •We'd be better off without] Christmas," they mutter, as the seasonal sound of "Jingle Bells" begins to jangle their nerves. The whole thing has just become a big business promotion of hypocritical sentimentality." There is, of course, some truth in what they say. Undoubtedly there is a high percentage of molasses in the sticky good will that inundates the. western world at Christmastide. Undoubtedly a lot of business inli- tution—perhaps even the U.S. Post Office—make a profit out of Christmas, and a lot of em- ployes earn big sums in overtime pay. And, undoubtedly a lot of people get presents they don't need and, in return, give presents that others don't want. A fellow has to admit also that the incessant din of "Jingle Bells" can weary even the most loyal ear. But none of this is any reason to dismiss poor old Santa Claus as a pious fraud or a tool of capitalism. Naturally he has his faults. In a time of overpowering conformity he remains a stubborn old-fashioned nonconformist. No business luncheon club would admit to membership an oddball who wears a red stocking cap, red suit, and black boots. Production-wise, his manufacturing facilities are overcentral- ized, since he has worldwide distributon but only one factory —and that one in a climate fit only for polar bears. He refuses lo pay tariff or customs duties and smuggles his goods across international boundaries. Although he flies through the skies, he never radios his flight plan to federal aviation authorities. He goes down chimneys asked or unasked, thereby committing the arrcstable offense of breaking and entering. On the other hand, there is much to be said in favor of San- la Claus. For example: He is the only grownup over 30 years of age thai all children still believe and have faith in. He is faithful to his wife. He has never had a divorce or been caught in a love nest. He has a perfect safety record. He lias never been in a traffic accident or dented a pe- destrain. You don't, find many drivers like that, old or young. As a boss, he maintains exemplary relations with his workmen. His elves have fine morale, and none has ever been The Albany Convention of 1754 first formal proposal for a political union of the American i The Celebes Sna is one of th« | world's deepest bodies nf water | according to the Encyclopaedia | Brilaimica.
