The decision, by Revenue Commissioner John B. Dunlnji, doc.s not meet fully a request of the American Society of Newspaper Editors. The society, in the efforts to break. da\vn secrecy in government, hns asked for nutomnlic publicity on all cases where settlements are made for n mount less than the taxpaper owed. May Check Files Only But Dunlnp' said tlint, whenever the existence of such a compromise case has been publicized by persons outside the bureau nnd the propriety of the settlement is challenged, newsmen mny examine the settlement files — but not the tax returns themselves— and write of thoir finds. In other words, there will hiwe to be a "leak" of the supposedly secret settlement data — through congressional sources or otherwise — before the files will be opened to reporters. The bureau submits details on settlement cns- cs to sennte and house committees concerned with 40 tnx matters.

When Premier Mnhamined Mos- sadegh kicked the British out 15 months ago and nationalized the oil industry, one-third ol Iran's revenue disappeared.
