PAGE TWO BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COOTT NEWS State Department To Confer with Ike On Iranian Problem .By JOHN M. HTOHTOWER WASHINGTON Wi—Slate Department officials are expected to con ler with President-elect Elsenhoivcr or his representatives next week on & new formula for solving the Iranian problem. It is understood also that the new approach is a subject for discussion between secretary of Stale Acheson and British Foreign Secretary Eden in their talks in Now'York. The central idea of the formula seems designed to get Iranian oil flowing out and money for U (lowing in again at the curliest possible moment—without final settlement of the dispute between Iran and Britain over nationalization of Iran's oil industry. Stal« Department authorities feel that the 'longer the present impasse continues— find various Irnn- ian agencies like the army and civil service go unpaid—the greater becomes (he danger of a collapse of civil authority and the rise of Communist power tn this strategic Middle Kastern land. In the past these authorities have worked'on the theory that a legal settlement of the Anglo-Iranian dispute, critical since Iran seized British-owned oil properties there last year, should logically precede or be a part of any settlement reviving the oil industry umlsr Iranian control. Dul the new approach .would relegate legal set- tlement to a lesser priority. To Talk With Truman Elsenhower will have a chance to henr about this j>lnn when lie meets with President Truman—at 2 p.m, <EST) next Tuesday, according to the White House—lo prepare for an orderly change of administrations. Eisenhower has designated Sen Lodge (R-Mass.) as his State Department liaison man. Despite appeals from Prime Minister Churchill of Qreat Britain and President Truman, Iranian Premier Mossadegh has failed to agree to any : settlement formula Ihus far put forward. Mossadegh last month broke relations will) the British government. Informants do not appear highly optimistic about the new proposition. For Ihc proposal to succeed, the British would have to agree to let oil begin moving out of Iran to world markets ngoln without having t!nal agreement on the amour/ of compensation Iran should pay for the nationalized properties, It Is understood, United States authorities tire!(Milking about Ihe problem of Betting agreement of oil companies to cooperate in (1) opening up and ; operating oil production facilities under Iranian government control, (2) making arrangements for transporting the oil which requires about 13 tankers n day, and (3) hnudJtng the ultimate sales.

At night you can see farther and better on concrete. Its light-colored surface spreads illumination. Pavement edges, obstructions and pedestrians are clearly defined. Night or day, wet or dry, concrete has uniformly high skid-resistance because of it* permanently gritty texture. You can stop quickly, safely. Concrete saves money, too. It is moderate in first cost yet can be designed accurately for any axle load— and concrete keeps its load- carrying capacity throughout its long service life. Concrete pavements cost less to maintain, last much longer. All this adds up lo (ow-onnwof-cotf service.
