Mossa- degh now lias more power than any Jrankm premier ever had and n completely free hand to Implement his nlne-iiolnt program Intended to put Iran back in the black, financially. The Senate session was punctuated by attacks on American advisers. The speakers did not refer to them directly as Americans but us* the term "foreign advisers." however, since the Americans are th« only ones with military mis- »fon» and advisers here, it was plain whom they meant. Dr. Martin Daftarl, son-in-law of th* premier, after defending the government's program, told the Senate: "We do not need foreign •dvlsen in this country."

Police Stand BT Aware the broken locks made U Impossible to keep the convicts behind bars for the night, the police Mood by and allowed the prisoners to blow off steam. Quiet finally »a» restored shortly alter midnight and the prisoners bunked down as best they could, many in the prison yard. The demonstration was almost an exact duplicate of the two separate days of rioting thnt erupted In (he prison curly in May. Injuries in those riots, however, were comparatively mtnir. After the May disturbances an , official investigation was promised by the Quebec provincial government, but no results have been announced. One prisoner was heard to shout last night "we could pick the steel wool out of the corn we had tonight for supper." There wns no immediate statement from the jnll governor, Dr. Zenon Lesnge, or other prison authorities. Jail sources said, however, that the trouble began when 'one pri?on- er pretended to be stricken ill In his cell. He called a guard, overpowered him and used his keys !o free other convicts from their cells.

McM.ith and "Silent Voler" The McMath forces npaiently attempted to turn the Cherry talka- thon to their.own with a series of questions directed to the candidate, from a "silent voter" over three Texarkana radio stations immediately before Cherry wns to go on the air. Cherry later answered them. After the Cherry program was over, the some "silent voter" came back with a repetition ol the questions which he snld hadn't been answerer! fully along with tome new ones. Tills second phase of what the silent one said wasn't designed as "heckling" was timed to follow Immediately after Cherry finished. But Cherry quit talking 10 minutes before Hie scheduled hour nnd the interval was filled with music. Connection In Obvious The direct connection with Mc- Malh wns obvious. Some of the Issues raised were the same ones used by McMath In a speech nt Olen- wood last night. For example questions about Cherry's connection wiili an East Arkansas "divorce mill" nnd the part Hint Sen. John L. McClellan. no political friend of McMath, is playing In the Cherry campaign. Cherry said Arkansas divorce laws are "bad" nnd that he had prepared for a group of interested women proposed legislative revisions. McMath, he said, promised support !

Murry Ruled State Defender In McMqffi Suit LITTLE ROCK W) — I'utnski Chancellor Frank Dodge ruled yesterday nlternoon that Atty. Gen. Ike Mllrry was Arkansas' legal defender in the suit of Gov. McMnth to recover some S900 in back state income taxes. Chancellor Dodge upheld Murry's petition that he should be allowed to defend the state, and overruled fi motion by the defendant. Revenue Commissioner C:irl Parker that Murry's intervention was "a political move." Parker's attorney, o. T.

HAAKINSON WASHINGTON W> — One of the architect* of the Democratic platform said today R'LJ probably a good thing that Northmi J 'a'nd "Southern Democrats contend tlie new civil rights plank means different tilings. "That's all right with me as long as they all vote right In November." Sen. Theodore Prancis, Green of Rhode Island told a reporter. Despite mounting Dixie-Yankee disputes about. Just "what the civil rights plank p%lgcs, Green said the compromise should eliminate any bolt by Southern states similar to the 19!8 defection. Oreen, oldest senator—he will be 85 on Oct. 2—was one of the 18 members of the preliminary platform drafting committee that worked day nnd night at Chicago. Their two-phase compromise avoided a party-splitting fight bolh In the 125-member Platform Committee and later on the convention floor. Action Promised Tlie civil ri|;h(.s section promised continued Democratic Activity In the field of racial relations to eliminate discrimination In political rights, employment and other fields. A separate section pledged Im- Southern and Northern Democrats have used the words of the platform as a mirror for their conflicting views. Pl«ult "J.tM Threittnlnt" Sen. A. Wiss Robertson of Virginia, In announcing his'support for a straight Democratic ticket thts fall, said the new civil rights plank "Is less threatening to the Southern viewpoint than the 1948 plank." Other Southerners say flatly that the new plank, is weaker than the 13-18 pledge, which caused a convention walkout of Dixie delegates and loss of 33 electoral votes for President Trnman four years ago. Sen. Blair Moody of Michigan. Sen. Herbert H. Lehman of Nev: York and Sen. Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota and other Northern Democrats insist the new platform is much stronger. They argue that the pledge to improve congressional lawmaking machinery amounts to A promise to end Senate filibusters, or at least try to change Senate rules to accomplish this. Caught In the middle of this political tug-of-war' Is Sen. John Spnrkman of Alabama, who won the Democratic vice presidential nomination after helping shape the platform compromises. Without detailing his view provement of congressional piece- civil rights or related issues, Spark- dnres so that a minority could not; man said It is his "firm conviction obstruct legislation in cither the j that our platform provides a pro- Senate or House. • ~ ' Since the convention at McMATH gram on which we can wage our campaign and win." W. Berlin Alerts Riot Squad Against Red Youth Invasion BERLIN Wl — Tension mounted in divided Berlin today as West Berlin police alerted riot squads to combat a threatened invasion of Western sectors tomorrow by thousands ot demonstrating Communists youth. The planned invasion to demonstrate 1 "for peace" was announced by the Communist press in the wake of last night's demand by Russia that the Big Three Powers lift restrictions, on trade between the East-West zone* of Germany. The Soviets charged the trade . bars violated the 1D48 agreement ending the Red blockade of Berlin. i Western Allied officials In Ger! many will meet in Bonn next week to consider a reply to live Soviet charge. They declined comment until expert.s have studied the demands made by G e n. Vassily Chuikov, Soviet Control Commission chairman. Although the air of the Russian move was not immediately apparent, observers considered it significant in view of the tension in this re-cnclrclcd city. It could foreshadow another blockade if the Soviets are looking 1 for an excuse for such a maneuver. Shortly after the Soviet licensed news agency AON reported the protest. West German officials announced that East and West Ger- WonHnwd from Psgt 1) tloned as a probable contender for McCtellan's Senate seat In 19S4. Dkore« "MIH" Hit Waving his coatless arms In nghT- Ing gestures, the governor told a crowd estimated by Glenwood Mayor Ervis Lively at 2,000 and a statewide radio audience that Cherry ; a hypocrite who was granting "fraudulent divorces on the testimony of professional witnesses." He said he had made a spot check of 38 divorces In Cherry's Chancery Court In East Arkansas, adding; "One attorney handled 25 of these cases and used the very same witnesses In nine of them. Two other witnesses were used In 13 cases. It looks like It would soak Into cherry's head that fraud was being perpetrated In his court. "There have been thousands ot other cases like this in his court breaking up homes—the very cornerstone of government—and leaving wives and children without adequate support. . . "Francis has bragged that the lawyers of his district are behind him. These are the shysters who are benefiting from the divorce racket. "Francis Cherry is a good man He is an honorable man, champion of the weak, defender of defenseless women and children. All this must be true because he has told us all about it on his talkathon over and over and over. "Mask Is Hypocritical" "You can't fool the Arkansas people, nnd one of the first things they can see through Is a mask- that hides n hypocritical face." McMath last night also made his first reference to the action of Jack Holt and Ike Murry in throwing their support to Cherry after they were eliminated from the race in the preferential primary. Said the governor: "I'm sure they went to the political bed with Francis because they love him so well." Rep. Boyd Tackett also was defeated last Tuesday and also voiced support of Cherry, but McMath did not criticize the Congressman. Glenwood is Tackctt's birthplace. The governor put In a strong bid for Tnckett's Southwest Arkansas vote by shouting, "Although we were opponents and have political differences, : didn't like it a bit when John McClellan pulled the rug out f45,000 Lo«t To 4 Gunmen HEADS AEC — R«P- Carl T.
