I It was estimated that less than one-half of Americans seek dental Prevalence of Cancer Varies Geographically, by Condition U.S. May Press Great Britain For Policy Change in Iran -, JOHN M. mOflTOWER WASHINGTON HI — The United States Is prepared to press for a radical change in Britain's policies toward Iran If It appears such a step would help avert the danger of Communist seizure of Iran from . the Inside. American officials, facing a new round of consultations with the British on the Iranian situation this week, appeared uncertain today whether political conditions in Iran would offer opportunity for effective action by the Western powers. They were hopeful, however, that some steps could be taken fairly quickly.- Intensive lalks to date have produced an understanding between Washington and London, informants said, that the best bet for blocking the intrigues of the Communist Tudeh party and of others who might play Into Communisl hands Is to strengthen, If possible the position of Premier Moham med Mossadegh. How that could bi don* Is problem. American officials privately suggest that If Britain could «nd "a way to relax its economic blockade of Iran and permit Iranian oil to ba sold to the outside world Mossadegh's anti-Communist In fiuence in his badly split countrj would ba reinforced. This is he cause he would have gained both 8 political objective and 20 to 30 million dollars of Income from stored oH. Only by a drastic modification of pol'jy, however, could the British permtt Iranian oil to flow to world markets. Furthermore. Mossadegh — A tearful old man even In official conferences—is such an unpredictable person and the forces around him are so explosive that authorities said It was difficult to tell whether (my effective steps could be taken. Two events contributed to this latest outburst of worry over the future of Iran: I. On Friday the British government received a proposal from Mossadegh to reopen negotiations for a settlement of the British- Iranian oil dispute. But the con- Copt.

Carlsen s parents live in Denmark. dltlons which Mossadegh laid down were described by authorities here as wholly unacceptable from either the British or the American viewpoint. 3. On Saturday the Iranian Senate—a parliamentary body which usually exercises little more power than Britain's House of Lords— suddenly asserted Its constitutional rights and blocked, for the time being at least, a bill to Brant dic- tatoria; powers to Mossadegh for six months. The Iranian Senate's action came as a shock to official Wwashington and raised anew the question whether even Mossadegh is a strong enough "strong man" to constitute a defense against the Reds which the United States can back.
