With Iran's Freedom The renewal of cforla to obtain a settlement of the Iranian oil dispute probably ought to be viewed as heartening-. But thus far Premier Mossadegh has been making the same old noises and hope of real results is slim. Prime Minister Churchill mid President Truman offered fresh proposals he- cause they know Iran is in difficult 'financial straits through loss of markets for its oil. The West could use the oil. But the primary impulse toward settlement is the fear that a tottering Iranian economy might make the nation easy prey to a Moscow-inspired Communist coup. These problems, of course, have existed all along. The Churchill-Truman offer at this time suggests that the West feels Mossadegh might lie more approachable now that he has felt the heavy financial pressure of the past, several months. But Mossadegh has shown no sign of readiness lo give way. Tic knows the West trembles at the prospect his government might collapse replaced by a Red regime. Therefore hr> seems to feel that time is on, his side, that it" he can just hold out long enough the Wrst will concede his full terms. Those terms arc stiff. Undoubtedly he wants a much bigger loan from America than tho S10 million proposed now iiy Mr. Truman. More than that, in his anti-British fury ho wants absolutely no concession of any sort lo the British who built and managed the Iranian oil faculties and now find themselves out. in the cold. The Churchill-Truman plan would submit all questions of compensation to the British for settlement by the World Court. Mossadegh has reject rd I hat solution flatly. As a matter of fact, ho has publicly rejected the whole program in a drastic, three-page statement that appeared to shut the door to future negotiations. But, in accord with past pr.iclice. Iranian officials have at the same time privately attempted to keep the door to negotiations open. Mossadegh seems to believe that this little game is shrewd and isMiounri to pay of. He behaves as if he holds nil the cards and merely needs to play them. But he already has made one major mistake. He thought the West needed Iranian oil desperately, and would come around long ago. In fact, the West, though at some pains to do so, found other sources of oil and is adding new BLYTHBTTLLB {ARTC.f COtTRTBR refining capacity elgewhers, Today It U not waiting for a single barrel of Iranian petroleum. Wliat Mossadegh is doing is extremely risky. It may gratify his passion to hate the British — and serve similarly the nationalist fanaticism of his people. But at the same moment it is placing grave jeopardy an important Middle East economy that was once on the way to being sound. Mossadegh appears to forget that If his government and his economy should crumble, it would not be just the West that would lose. The Iranian people have cjtiite a slake themselves — nothing less than their freedom. Mossadegh is playing fast and loose with the destiny of his people, not to realize legitimate nationalist aspirations, but lo satisfy unreasoning hatreds.

Nov.- declarer had to find a way to make nine tricks. He decided that even if the spades broke 3-3, he would still need the club finesse or a heart trick. He decided to establish a heart trick at once in the hope that East had the ace of hearts, or that each opponent had four diamonds, West naturally pounced on the king of hearts with his ace. and set declarer immediately by running the rest of Ihe diamonds. South had made the give-up play, and deserved exactly what he got. The correct play is to nm the spades alter taking the ace of diamonds. West Is practically compelled to signal with first the seven of hearts and then Ihe three of hearts. This warns declarer that the ace of hearts is held by West.

Spcc-lal Sesslnn Talk Fades Away That talk about n special session „,. ,.„, of Congress this fall, to deal with I out th, the high cost of living, was started Just before Arnall resigned as price stabilizer, principally to stir up the animals to let them know that Ihe control of inflation was KOin? lo be a harder job. Agitation for Ihe special session was apparently put out with President Truman's approval. But nobody now expects the special session to be called, unless things got a lot worse. The situation Is that Ihe farmers are being promised steadier and higher prices, as part of the campaign strategy. Labor Is demanding higher wages.
