Gravity of Trouble in Iran Demads Some Action Three recent developments in Europe and the Middle East deserve attention from the standpoint of mutual defense. They are not nil directly related to each other, but they ench hear importantly on the delicate balance of power in that part of the world. First is the news from Washington, backed up by reports from European capitals, that tliinjis could he better with the North Atlantic Trer.ty Organization program for rearming ICnrope. It appears that original goals for some countries will not lie met. England, caught in another of a series of economic crises, has indicated her defense production program will have to be rejigged in favor of more consumer goods. France, too, is having serious money trouble, what with carrying on an expensive war in Indo-China, among other things, and it seems all too likely that she will not be able to meet her NATO quotas. But while the material substance of the European defense program may be thinning out, tiie moral side has gotten a boost with the ratifying by the United States Senate and the British Parliament of the peace contract with West Germany. That's encouraging, although it still remains for the French and West German governments to ratify. Many Frenchmen still have a deep fear of Germany, and of the independence and political strength which the corftract would give the Bonn government. Some of the German Social Democrats want even greater strength than would be provided under the contract and may try to hold out for it before ratifying. There may be some rough sledding ahead in these two countries, but the beginning made in England and in this country marks the way and sets a strong example to be followed. Meantime, far away to the southeast in Iran, there has developed a situation whose potential seriousness to the Western nations cannot be underestimated. Iran, the oil-vital country directly bordering Russia on the south, has set up a strongly nationalistic government which is voicing strong opinions against both England and the United States. Unofficial demands have been made for this country to withdraw both its military advisers and officials of our BLYTHEVTLLK (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Point Four program, which we were counting on to make us friends. And now the Iranians have restated their claim to Ttahrein Island, in the Persian Gulf, which is under British protection and whose rich oil lands are operated by American capital. If Russia should fake over Iran it would mean she had divided Europe from the Far Bast, had obtained for herself warm-water ports and the rich Iranian oil fields, and was in a position to seriously threaten American oil holdings in that part of the world. The moderate, independent London newspaper, "The Observer," says on the subject: "Of all the countries in the world Persia (Iran) seems most likely to fall under Communist domination by the Russians in the near future ... it is not exaggerating to say that the danger of events leading to a third world war is greater in Persia than in Germany, Vugoslavia, Korea, or Indo- China." Those are serious words from a thoughtful and respected newspaper. Surely there still is time nnd a way to deal with Iran along lines which can lead to peace instead of war. SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, 1952 Views of Others Moscow Please Note Senator Alexander Wiley wants an agreement between the two major parties on Issues relating to Communist ngcrc^sion to prevent an election year "vacuum" which might invite an attempted knockout blow from Russia. To Hint end, the Wisconsin Republican suggests that President Truman and Secretary of State Derm Aclieson should Invite Osn. E'.vight Eisenhower to confer with them on "continuing international problems and challenges that may arise between now and next InnURiirallon Day." Former Secretary of State Cordell Hull initiated a policy o[ this kind in 1944 when Gov. Thomas E. Dcwey wns the Republican Presidential nominee. Its wisdom was manifest then and It U Just ns necessary now, II the occasion should arise for consultation, It should be- had. However, there Is no disagreement between the two major parties on the Russian problem, as the Republican platform and Gen. Eisenhower's well-established views will attest. Partisanship in this country ends where national security la concerned, nnd If the Russians have any doubt on thut score they are invited tc review American hiBlory. Moreover, Moscow might note that there Isn't a pro-Russian element in either of our major political parties. —Knoxville (Term.) News-Sentinel ncreduious 'Tale' An Indian was hailed into court, charged with not paying his income tax. The Red Man tusked the Judge why he should pny income tax. The Judge painstakingly explained that Uncle Sum needed the money so that when he, the Indian, got sicfc or too old to work or got out of a Job, the Great White Father would be able to send him some money to take cure of him. A lifht of understanding flashed over the Indian's face. "JudBe," said he, "tfmt Just like my dog and me. He guod dog. He hard-working dog. When he work much hard he comes to me, bark, and say, "Boss. I work much hard, give me nice piece of meat.' "I take big sharp knife, cut off piece his tall and say. 'You e<xid dog. you work hard, here nice Juicy piece meat for you," He so dumb, he no know difference. It big laugh—he lick my hand for give him piece of his own tnll." And like the Indian's dog. incredulous as It may seem, many Americans, the while they consume themselves, are licking the hand that does the slicing and passes the slice on to them. In gratitude and supplication for more of the same. —Greenwood (Miss.l Commonwealth SO THEY SAY Poetic Realism Peter Edson's Washington Column — Records Show Virginia Deins Signed State 'Loyalty Pledge* WASHINGTON—(NEAl —Extensive digging into Virginia political records, since the great bat tip of the Chicago Democratic convention over the seating of the Virginia lieve in Its principles, that I voted j Stevenson nnd Sen.

If, on the other hand, the Vir RlniR Pledge of Honor is construed to require support of the natlona ticket, then the question Is raised as to what objection there could be to making a similar pledge bjfore the Chicago convention? On top of all this.'it can now be revealed that a protest was mad' to the Credentials Committee of thi. Democratic National Convention tn Chicago, charging that the Vlrginl delegates had not been legally cer tified to the convention. The substance of the protest was this: The Democratic National Convention handbook, page 20, requires that, "the names of all delegates and alternates a.'e certified to the national convention not less than IS days prior to the opening of the convention-" "Hie Democratic convention opened In Chicago July 21.
