IIIGHTOWUR WASHINGTON IB— The Communists have mounted a major propaganda offensive to try to defeat the Truman - Churchill proposals for a settlement of the Anglo- Iranian oil dispute. The voice of Soviet communism beamed into Iran is a clandestine "Azerbaijan democratic" radio station which officials here believe to be on Russian territory. A record of broadcasts from this station dur ing the past lew days has been circulated in the State Department and it shows a violent opposition to the oil deal offered Iran by the United States and Britain last Saturday. 3 Pulnl Plan The three-point plan, sent to Premier Mossadegh by President Truman and Prime Minister Churchill, is being denounced bj the Reds as "plundcrous propos als," a device for "American im- he Iranian people—in Communist parlance the Communists and their oltowers in Iran—to demonstrate and protest against this latest effort to settle the oil dispute. Truman and Churchill proposed Saturday that the World Court de termine compensation for British property in Iran which the Tehran government has nationalized, thai Britain's Anglo-Iranian Oil Co. ar range for sale of the Iranian oi in world markets, and that specific steps be taken lo end prompt!} the Iranian government's financia distress.

Intercepted Private Letter to Be Big Evidence in McCarthy Case Sparkman Says Eisenhower 'Giv Away GOP Platform Every Day' WASHINGTON for Sen. .McCarthy — Attorneys <R-Wis> indi . cated today that an intercepted private letter will become major evidence in the senator's two million dollar libel-slander suit against Ben. Benton CD-Conn). But Edward B. Williams, one of McCarthy's lawyers, declined to tell newsmen, how he got a copy of a confidential note to Charles Stanley Allen, Benton's administrative assistant, Allen testified at a pre-trial hearing yesterday that the letter reached him in February from the Senate postoffice marked "Opened by mistake." One end had been snipped open, then stapled together he said. Robert Fleming, described as a political writer for the Milwaukee Journal, wrote the note asking Allen's help in getting material from the files of a Senate subcommittee investigating McCarthy's fitness to continue as a senator. Fleming suggested that the letter be destroyed. But Allen said he still had a copy ot it and said he thought he could produce it along with copies of other correspondence with Milwaukee Journal em- ployes which McCarthy's counsel hss subpoenaed. The hearing was adjourned in- definitely until Allen could collect this correspondence. He said it was somewhat voluminous and scat- lered.

Then he said to Theodore Kiendle, one of Benton's attorneys, "There goes your case." Fleming wrote he was "increas-' ingly distressed" by the attitude of a Senate rules subcommittee! headed by Sen. Gillette (D-Ia), which Is considering a resolution by Benton seeking McCarthy's expulsion from the Senate. In order to salvage "The Project", Fleming said, he was "wondering what happens to the com- nitlee's files if they do nothing on this case . . .

Benton charged that McCarthy's campaign against Communists in government has been marked by fraud, perjury and calculated deceit. McCarthy then accused Benton of following a pro-Communist line while serving in the state department. The libel-slander suit arose from this and other phases of Benton's critical speeches.
