Stewart Says By CHARLES P. STEWART •' Central Press Columnist. IRAN (latest country to be •Ides wiped by. the war) pronounce* it* name Ee-ran—Just like "h* ran" (he ran /or president or some such thing), the course. The Iranian* always called it Iran. In Washington it used to be referred to as Persia. It figured under that name In English versions of the Arabian Nights. How so peculiar an error originated is a mystery, but the state department fell for U, and formerly officially listed It as Persia in its roster of foreign diplomatic representations in the Congressional Directory, Comparatively recently the Iranian legation In. Uncle Sam's capita) created a te'rriflc outcry over the misnomer its country's properly on record as Iran. Sianvalso got its name corrected Into Thailand. Greece wasn't so successful. Its Washington'legation raised a holler in favor of a translation into Hellas, but the Congressional Directory still stands pat for Greece what's left of it since the war •lopped over onto its soil. The state department knows where Iran is on the map, but isn't very well acquainted with it otherwise, . and consequently hasn't much to say yet concerning Win•ton Churchill's and Joe Stalin's contention .that their forces had to invade the small monarchy to put a atop to Nazi plotting there, Mohammed Schayesteh, Iranian minister here, has made a fearful howl. to Secretary Hull, on the ground that his country has only the merest handful of Germans, as experts in its oil fields, instead of the small army of 'em, alleged by Winnie and Joe to be making medicine in the direction of an Axl« grab of the whole place. Revolution Feared , That there weren't enough German* actually on the spot to take over the Teheran government, all by themselves, is considered pretty likely, That isn't the point, though!

Comrade' Oumansky represent that Rlzt Khan Pahlcvi, Iran's present ruler, might bo pretty susceptible to an overthrow, He got in by a revolution himself, and perhaps the element ho supplanted needed only a little encouragement to try tq abolish him, Ho was a hostlei originally, and there are suspicion* that it wasn't a job to train him to direct affairs like today's. Being as anti-Nazi as it is, the •tate department's inclination is to give the benefit - of all doubts to Winnie Churchill and Joe Stalin, who,. in tho midst of thoir othei troubles, presumably wouldn't It* bothering with Iran if. they didnjt doom it imperatively'necessary to do so. Geography enters into the question, too. ; We want to send war suppliea to Russia,'don't we? Well, to deliver 'em via Siberia, wo must ferry 'em across the Pacific and then, through Japanese waters', to Vladivostok, for' transshipment by rail. And the .Jap's may ro.sist navigation of their waters. No doubt we can lick 'cm. with our navy, but it would involvo. delay and some losses, in all probability. But suppose we send 'em from our west coast, around India, through the Indian ocean, into the Arabian sea and then into the Persian gulf, landing 'cm at the northwestern end of the latter, on Iranian soil. Thence there's good < rail transportation across Iran, plus a short hop over the Caspian sea, and we hand the stuff over to Joe Stalin. It may sound complicated, but it's the quickest way of getting to Russia through no war zone. But, of course, it wouldn't be available if the Axis could get control of Iran. Kegrctti for the Envoy The atate department is sorry for Iranian Minister Mohammed Bchayciteh, .who naturally doesn't like to have Iran invaded by anybody. Nevertheless, maybe he wouldn't'like having hio boss, the ex-hostler, Riza KKan Pahlevi, rey- olutodiout of his rulership by the Nazia, cither. Anyway, the do- partmcnt's hunch is that Winni« Churchill'* and Joe Stalin's, ver- iion* are more pro-democratic than Mohammed's. ', •But one thing stumps me.
