(Courier News Photo) Iran Flatly Rejects U.S., British Proposal on Oil _ TEHRAN, Iran (AP) _ premier Mohammed Mossadegh flatly re- muddled issue. Blasting the recent Truman° — -~v.tnu Aiuinaii- churchill proposal as the worit yet made in the dragged-out negotiations, Mossadegh told newsmen, "The solution proposed in this message is not only altogether inequitable, but more severe and impracticable than earlier proposals." Mossadegh's point-b y -point rejection of the British-American offer was contained .in a three-page statement read to reporters at his home. Shortly after the news conference, George Midrtleton, British charge d'affaires, conferred for more than an hour with Mossadegh at the latter's home. He refused to divulge the nature of the discussion. Rejection "Expanded" Mossadegh's statement was an expansion of his off-lhe-cuff rejection Aug. 30. when Ihe joint offer was made. He has called a special parliamentary session Wednesday to frame a formal reply to Britain and the United-Stales. Observers believe Parliament will echo the Premier's stand. However, some quarters pinned hope negotiations might continue on Mossadegh's reference last night to a court settlement. The Nepro Fined for Pulling Knife on Constable JOSMC L.

"The first condition of this agreement," he added, "is that the parties to Ihe suit should determine the limit and the nature of their dispule."

Tyronza, West An American combat officer reported the lighting was largely hand-to-hand — "with bayonets, fists, grenades, satchel - charges, daggers and clubs." The officer said "It's a hide and seek affair at night, all hand-to- hand because there's not anything to shoot at in the dark." He said no one controlled the crest of the central front height because ot Ihe heavy artillery barrages from both sides. The U. S. Eighth Army earlier had reported that the South Koreans— who in three days have attacked five times in the face of 48.000 rounds of artillery fire—had reached trie top only to be driven off an hour later. Two Red Units "Ruined" The American said U. N. artillery ruined two Red battalions. Brig. Gen. Lee Yong Moon, commander of the capital division, said ! Chinese casualties "ran into hundreds killed." Another officer said no accurate figure on Red casualties could be given because many of the dead and wounded "arc in a territory we don't control." The U. S. Fifth Air Force said its Sabre Jet pilots knocked five MIGs out of the air today and damaged five others in battles near the Manchurian border. The air victories raised the September bag of Rusisan-built MIGs to 22 destroyed, one probably destroyed and 15 damaged. This pace If, well ahead of the record 44 MIGs destroyed En April.
