WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, '1949 THE NATION TODAY— Rich Young Shah of Iran to Get YIP Treatment on Visit to U.S. Because of His Country's Oil By James Marlow WASHINGTON, Nov. 16. (fly-The 30-year-old king of ancient Persia, Mohammed Rcza Pahlevl, Shah ol Iran, arrives here today for a 23-day look around. + . '1'hls ' Is the lirst visit to Ihfs BLYTHEVTLL! (ARK.) COURIER NEWS country of the young Shah, who has his own publicity man, speaks English, has a brother now at the University of Michigan and another who was graduated from Harvard. The Shah will he well taken care of while he's here. He was flown over on President Truman's plane, the Independence. And Secretary or State Acheson flew back •tyom Europe so he could be here '0 meet and help entertain the royal guest.. While he's here, the Shah will be give 21 dinners, luncheons and receptions, starting tonight with a state dinner by President and Mrs. Truman. In turn, the Shah will give one dinner and hold three receptions. He'll be flown around the country, visiting New York, a football game, Detroit, the Grand Canyon, California, and Su Valley for a rest. This country .is very - intereste'd in keeping fran and the Shah very friendly to the U.S. Iran is on Russia's southern border and would be a helpful ally if Russia got rough and tried to push south. Iran Rich is rich in Oil with oil which Is important now and would be more important In wartime. The Persian economy is being supported largely from royalties and payrolls of the British controlled Anglo-American Oil Company. Russia, has its eyes on Iran's oil- The Shah was shot at recently by a would-be assassin. But, with American .backing, he has a better chance of keeping his throne than he might otherwise have In his often-troubled country. Keeping Iran fairly stable, with a ruler who has good will toward the United States, fits in the U.S. foreign policy. A couple of years ago when ..Russia to set up the puppet ^fvu»oi<i triea to sei up me puppec ^•republic at Azerbaijan in Iran, the U.S. backed Iran, the United Nations rapped Russia's knuckles, and the republic folded. Americans have been busy Iran for five years, advising the Shah's army, when Congress this fall voted 41,314,000,000 military assistance for Western Europe and other non-Communist countries, >27,640,0<H>0 was earmarked for Iran, Korea and the Philippines Iran also has been supplied with substantial quantities of American war surplus equipment. And Iran may make requests for loans from the World Bank and the American Export-Import Bank. The king, who likes tennis, skiing' and flying his own plane, has about 20 palaces and a treasury of jewels and heirlooms. He's a rich young man. But Iran itself, except for the royalties it gets from its great oil supplies, is not rich. It has a population of around 15,000,000 people. Only Two Classes In fact John Roderick, Associated Press reporter in Iran, wrote last May that "In Iran there are only two classes: the very rich and the very poor . . "Tehran, the capital, Is a city of nearly a million people. Yet it does not have modern water or waste disposal system. The water which goes into most people's homes flows in muddy, polluted streams in open sewers on both sides of each street. . . . "The population is a prey to many diseases. Skin rashes are common. Most foreigners avoid even the drinking water, rarely eat raw vegetables, whole milk or ice cream ... In the rurU, arena, malaria is widespread.' Only through extreme frugality are the peasants able to keep alive." But the Iranians have a plan, or are working on it, 1 a seven- year plan costing $650,000,000. to raise the country's living standards. Royalties from the British-controlled oil fields are expected to pav the bill. The Iranians consider themselves Aryans, not Arabs, and although the Shah is a Moslem, his country was not In {he recent Arab war In against the jews of Palestine. with N. Y.

I6-(.4>>—The fwank Hotel Pierre opened Its door to a dog show today—about the doggiest dog show, in fact, that anybody ever dreamed up. Among those present: A Welsh terrier wearing a coat from Paris, with a little white handkerchief peering from the pocket. *, " A boxer wearing a red raincoat with a hood," and waterproof leather boots to match. An Afghan- (name of "Jitterbug") wearing a grcan peaked hat with a bird—yes, a completebird— on it, to say nothing of an emerald green coat with a deep fringe. Some 250 women, mostly from the • social register, plunked down $3.25 each for a bite of lunch and a j ^•close-up view of these and assorted Mother canine specimens. And Mrs. Olga Hone Rogers, president of Dogs, inc., and chicf- ronnder-up of tour-logged fashion models for the occasion, said their money was well spent. * "This," she said "is easily the greatest collection of champions ever "seen outside of a regular dog show." The show is for the benefit of the New York Tuberculosis and Health* Association, and the spon- sors decided to run i.t perfectly deadpan—just a two-legged fashion Alexandria's Benders Subject of Research LOS ANGELES - -(/P>— Wild] Alexandria, Egypt, went on'a bender in the second century, B.C., the city was really equipped for it. This fact was dug up by Dr. Arthur Patcl McKinley of the University, of California. 'In Bacchic festivals, giant-wine containers were drawn through the streets by the faithful. One great cart was drawn by" 600 men ant carried 30,000 gallons of wlue. show. Spotlights were s et to train on tile prize-winning pooches as thej descended a ramp—unclad at first then all dolled up in their finery for a repeat performance. ' House detectives were on hand too. Not only were the dogs valuabl but some of their costumes ran into money. , . A miniature Pinscher, for in. stance, came wearing—brace your self—a white angora sweater, a silver leash and a guaranteed genuine diamond collar. Mrs. Rogers said. "Do the dog like it? Mister, they love it! You can just her the lovely, dumb things saying, 'Isn't this fun? Look what they've put on me now!"

He was a big, rawboned Edith Mae Harris, both of Russellville. with a long face, hair like mane and huge buck teeth. "Well, I feel a little silly about ils," said Gilbert. He fished out newspaper clipping and showed to the doctor. The clipping said: London veterinarian says neurotic nlmals need 'psychological teat- ient just like humans." Dr. Withers nodded his head provisionally. 'Very true," he said. "Just what re your horse's neurotic symp- oms?" , , . . "Well." said . Gilbert. "I bought ilm for $200 at an auction as a addle horse for my wife. But the lam fool won't run like any other lorse—he will only run sideways." "H-mmmm. refusal to face life," mil-mured the doctor.

"This goes against her grain. And she expresses this frustration by going sideways Instead of forward. I'm ^afraid she's a very mtxcd-up "But what can I do to cure her?" demanded Gilbert. "I'll have to psychoanalyze her. Leave her with me for a few months. I'll give her three consultations a week—at $15 each—nnd try to convince her she should forget her father and face life on her own four fee"t." Six months later he called Warb tack, handed him a bill for $1,170 and announced—"she's cured." <-<i|iiert saddled the smiling horse, and she galloped confidently home —straight forward. Exactly a week Incer he rode Gladys back t o the psychologist. "A fine thing you did to my horse," he said sternly. ' 'What's the matter, Is she going sideways again?" asked the surprised doctor. "No, Gladys runs all right." said Gilbert, "but every morning nt 10 o'clock she insists on coming Into the living room, plopping down on the sofa and telling her troubles to my wife for an hour.
