Ahm- odi, Iranian, war minister, said he received,at 2 p. m. a message from Jaafar Pishevari, leader of the semi-autonomous Azerbaijan regime, announcing tbe decision to capltu- „ late to the,Tehran demands. Premier Ahmed Qavam's troops Sad pushed deep into, Azerbaijan-in the two days since they invaded the province, which was occupied by the „ Russians during the war. Head for Tabriz The latest reportss said Qavam's - troops had passed beyond the Gha- flankuh ranges of, hills along the provincial border and ,were headed for Tabriz, capital of Azerbaijan. General AH Rasmara, cHlef of staff, said troops operating from Zen- Jail and Takab reached ^Mianeh, _the ,, "The v -2enjan"'coTifain*'jpeneti.3?ed through the- Gharlankuh „ passes, 1 which 'is the doorway' to Azerbaijan," Rasiuara said. "This "decided the Azerbaijan leaders -to announce their decision to* submit 'to ^e central government." He said the Zenjan column would continue on from Maineh to Abriz while other units fanned through tHe province and took up posts for the suprevision of the forthcoming Elections to the Iranian parliament.

Although ^earlier reports of the advance into Azerbaijan had referred to heavy casualties, many prisoners and some', fighting, the accompanying accounts of advances of 25 miles in a single day suggested that Qavam's units were moving forward virtually at will. ,\ More Coal Court Action Muroc Rocket Tiip Heralds ^B - _ j- -" • f son ic By United Press A new air age was heralded today with an official announcement by the United States' Army that its first rocket plane, the Bell XS-1, has been successfully test flown at Huroc Army Air Ease. Designed to rocket man into the unexplored realms beyond the speed of sound, the tiny knife- winged ship was dropped from the belley of a huge- B-23 bomber Monday and leaped away in a", 19- minute flight, nearly 7 minutes on rocket power. "Crawls" at 550 M. P.-H. Test Pilot Chalmers "Slick" Goodlin of Greensburg, Pa., held the plane's 40,000-horsepower rocket tubes carefully in check, keeping the needle-nosed craft down to a "crawling" 550 miles-an hour. Next summer, after at least 20 ' more preliminary flights, Goodlin will unleash the plane's.full power, capable of blasting the ship to speeds as high as 1700 miles an" hour at 80,000 feet. Gliding silently sway from the mother ship which seemed to be standing still, the two-tone orange- colored craft shot up 10,000 feet to 35,000 when Goodlin tested the four rocket tubes, one at a time. He turned on all four only momentarily, Praises Plane The handful, of top military men and engineers permitted to observe reported the XS-L climbed, dived and banked in wide./easy Chalmers H. (Slicli) Goodlin spirals, tracing a faint white trail in the blue desert sky. "Everything was tops, the plane,the engine, the flight," the 23- year-old ex-R. A. F. pilot said. ' "It wasn't, until rturned on the fourth cylinder for a lew seconds that I got a noticeable shove' forward. But my main impression was an eerie silence'in the cockpit, no roar, ,no noise at all." The XS-1 -has a &kfr. 2 5J times' ' stronger than on normal planes la - order to resist the terrific punishment expected when the ship cracks the wall of sound, about 763 miles an hour at sea level. No plane has.yet hit that -wall. - ;The experimental ctaft is'pow- ered by the same basic propulsion mechanism as in the German. V-3 rockets. .At full speed,- its fuel mixture of alcohol and liquid oxy-" - geruwill blast through the tubes at " at aXon a. minute. Its thunder'will _ be inaudible on the ground until tbe ship is long past. In the inaugural powered x flight, "the plane carried only 600 'gallons of fuel, which' lasted Wo seconds less than seven?minutes because of the "loafing" speed of the, craft— actually as fast as the rated sp,eed of P-80 jet fighters.- Fuel fQr,-a- full speed flight flares^ from ..the tubes at a ton. a minute". Months of Planning The first power flight of the XS-1 followed months of careful" planning, and a series of ^glide tests. Only a small group of-Bell engineers and arrny officials witnessed the flight. " - The flight had been .delayed , months by death of Bell's 'chief*- 1 test pilot. Jack: Woolams, killed last summer when his .racing plane plunged .into Lake Ontario. Woolams had ,dorie'preliminary, glide tests with "the ; 'rOeket plane. Designed for research Intd'super- ' sonic flying, the XS-1 is 31 feet long and has a 28-foot wingspread. Report for C.^.3. Say.s Bring Home Germanjrides FRANKFURT, Dec. 11. <UP.)~ General Joseph T.

Y., Dec. 11. <U.E)—The United States, Russia and Britain agreed tentatively today to drop their demands for a 'count of the world's armies and armaments, and passed to the all-powerful United Nations security council responsibility for taking early steps to disarm and ban atomic weapons. The surprise moro, engineered by Paul Henri Spank of Belgium, president of the general assembly, would supplant a British resolution for an immediate .count on troops and arnments — including atomic bombs. The new plan would require no actual disarming for at least a year. The plan, adopted in principle at a closed conference of a 10-nation drafting committee, calls upon the security council and U. N. members to: 1. Draft treaties fnr arament re- diction snd atomic energy control. 2rEstablish veto-free machinery to assure compliance with such agreements. ?. Trim their armies now In ox- enemy states and withdraw troops in friendly countries unless they have explicit permission of those countries. .Withhold Answer Delegates of the Big Three countries agree in principle, but withheld a final answer until they consulted with their delegations.

The new move aimed at meeting United States objections to revealing immediately the size of America's A-bomb stockpile. The plan would be added to a partly drafted resolution calling upon the security council to draft a program of arms reduction and enforcement measures,, and to speed work on an agreement to outlaw atomic weapons. Sir Hartley Shawcross of Britain and Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Vishinsky of Russia declared themselves "agreed in prmciple" on "the program. Senator Tom Conrially ID-Texas) indicated that he would ask the United States delegation to support the proposal.
