OIL INDUSTRY AIDS Persia Charges British Used Profits Improperly rpEHERAN, Persia, Feb. 10. — The A most Impressive charge against British oil Interests, voiced here Is that they have diverted to alien purposes financial resources which should have Increased tho profits of tho Persian undertaking. The semi-official Iran published a list of eight Anglo-Persian subsidiaries "which have come into existence at the cost of Persian toll and which have accumulated so much capital." Wby, .asks Iran, should wo be debarred from participation—at least to the 16 per cant provided by the concession—In the profits of these subsidiaries? Are we not one-sixth (United Frets Leased Wire) partner? Demand Taxe* Persians also demand that the company pay all Internal taxes, both corporate and on Individual Incomes, like any other business organization functioning on Persian soil. They want enough of a share In tho management to watch expenditures and accounting. Underlying these demands Is a dissatisfaction with British methods In general. It overlooks the benefits of British commercial activities and fastens on those elements which touch national pride. Confronted with the hospitals, schools, rftads, etc., built by tho company and the general civilizing Influences brought by the British, Persians admit the facts, but minimize their Importance, These things, they say, were necessary to British control and arc no altruistic enterprise, Persia Hard-Pressed Annulment of tho concession was a reflection In a double sense of Persia's fledgling nationalism. On the ono hand It wns an Irascible expression of the nation's new-born passion for bossing Its own household, On the other, It attests Its desperate financial straits. With costly railroads being laid, with the first factories under construction, with a real army being consolidated Persia Is extremely hard- pressed for cash. , Naturally oil was tho chief hope. Not only does Persia want a larger share from the oil already flowing but wants undeveloped areas worked. HENRY FORD BLAMED FOR DETROIT STRIKES (United Press Leased Wire) NEW YORK, Feb. 10.—B. C. Forbes, economist and writer, today charged Henry Ford, with responsibility for tho recent strike at various body plants In Detroit. "Tho Ford Motor Company," he wrote In an editorial In the current Issue of Forbes Magazine, "Is about the worst offender In tho whole country in compelling suppliers of materials to cut prices drastically. His extremely hard bargaining compels those doing business with him to squeeze workers. The company furnishing bodies for his new model, In a desperate effort to avoid losses, forced employes to bear part of the brunt. Workers'found their earnings utterly Inadequate. Therefore, they rebelled." TO REVOLT BODY (United Pro/is Leafed Wire) MERCED, Feb. 9.—Organization of Merced county farmers Into chapters of the United Farmers' League, tho association said to bo behind tho "revolt" against mortgage foreclosures In the midwest, reportedly was under way today.

Patterson said the league, when more strongly entrenched in California, will demand a moratorium on mortgage foreclosures and "modification of the tax burden." New, Larger Ford Eight to Be on Display Tomorrow DEVICE HEARI«IIVI1Y Details of New Machine Explained to Physicians by Dr. W. D. Reid (Continued From Page Two) not bo soon In records taken by th« standard tochnlqtie," Dr. Held snld. "The ability to amplify the waves, without loss of accuracy In contour, uppoars to be of much assistance In disclosing tlielr full details, especially In those Instancew In which the waves would otherwise be small." The present status of knowledge about treatment of chronic atrophic arthritis, the form of rheumatism that cripples the Joints, was reviewed by Dr. W. Paul Hoi brook of Tucson, Ariz, He emphasized that there Is no specific cure for this disease and many so-called "cures" and treatments advanced during recent years are not only worthless but harmful. The disease affects not only the Joints but many other parts of the body, Dl«t in Arthritis Gates Ho urged a diet high In vitamins but low In concentrated carbohydrates, such as starchy foods and sugar. Ho- moval of foci or centres of body poisoning such as diseased teeth or tonsils sometimes helps halt the disease In early stages but Is often dangerous when the arthritis Is advanced, ho said. A serleH of small blood transfusions sometimes Is helpful. Use of vaccines, ho said, Is less helpful than supposed, and "It Is time to call a halt on the promiscuous Injection of vaccines for arthritis."

This was the decision reached when the first needy feline was added to tho clty'H relief lists. Tommy, who evidently has been "unemployed" for KOirto time, was set to work exterminating mice and rats from the relief organization's headquarters. and consequently much roomier. Tho attractive instrument panel^ is directly In front of the driver,* with a large package compartment at tho right side of the instrument board. Front seats In closed cars are fully adjustable. Interior fittings are luxurious. Options in upholstery and a wldo choice of body colors are available. The improved V-8 engine Is fitted with all-aluminum cylinder heads, otic of the most noteworthy forward steps In motor design In many years. Because aluminum dissipates heat more rapidly, the use of the aluminum cylinder heads permits higher compression pressure and results In Increased speed, power and smoothness, faster acceleration and added fuel economy. Smooth engine performance results also from the basic 8-cyllnder destRn and tho three-point rubber mounting. Tho frame is cushioned by four Houdallle double-acting hydraulic shock absorbers which are both automatically and thermostatically adjusted for every variation In weather or road surface conditions. The shock absorber links are Insulated In rubber. The rear fuel tank has a capacity of 14 gallons. The transmission is of the synchronized type, with helical constant mesh gears, and functions unusually quietly both in second speed and during speed changing.
