Stratetfe Position Developments during recent months have made both Iran, the third-largest oil producer in the world, and the tMted States anxious to solidify an already amicable relationship. the United States has two principal reasons for attaching more importance than ever to the continued existence of a Witft United,strong government, TT it'll Ol quate fnimary forces in If -Iran Occupies a critical strategy potion in the otf-rteh Persian Gulf. It has as its neighbors the Soviet Union, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey and Iraq, Uncertainty here over eventual Russian intentions in the area gives 1 fart increased importance in the eyes of U.S. officials, who consider the Shah's government a major element of stability in art otherwise uncertain situation. -Iranian oil could become of critical importance to the united States, Western Europe and Japan if the big oil* producing countries to the south and west .of it ever go through with their threats to curtail supplies to the United States because of its pro-Israeli Holiday Liquor Specials At Benny's SCHLITZ or HAMM'S 24 cans $4.39 FALSTAFF 12 c « n » $ 2 09 24 can * 3 99 CHOICE DREWRYS STAG OLD MILWAUKEE 12 Can8 1" MILLER'S 12 cans $2.09 BLUE RIBBON WARM or COLD 6 Pak NR,f 99c 24 cans $3.99 CHOICE DREWRYS STAG OLD MILWAUKEE 12 Can8 1" SEAGRAM'S "7" FIFTH - $4.29 BLUE RIBBON WARM or COLD 6 Pak NR,f 99c 24 cans $3.99 JB SCOTCH FIFTH - $6.29 SEAGRAM'S "7" FIFTH - $4.29 BLUE RIBBON WARM or COLD 6 Pak NR,f 99c 24 cans $3.99 - QUARTS OLD THOMPSON WALKERS 10 HI IMPERIAL $4.39 — FIFTHS — WINDSOR CAN.

Although only 10 per ciht of U .S. oil import* now corns from Iran, u.s. officials atty that within a few years the United State* will upon the Persian Gulf area for at least 2$ per cent of its imported oil. Plot Suspected -The motives impelling the Shah tO increase his military Strength are concerned with his uncertainty about the intentions of iOme of his neighbors. U.S. officials who have recently conferred with the Shah say that he strongly suspects that Russia and India are conspiring to foment tribal uprisings in Pakistan With the Objective of eventual dismemberment of that country. He also continues to have trouble With Iraq, on his western border, where a hostile govern- fment disputes his rights to use the Strategic gulf. ; And finally, the Shah must always be alert against the possibility that Arab guerrillas in nearby countries Will move into his border area because of his friendly attitude toward Israel.

The Amaquon District Camporee was held at Fell* heimer Scout Reservation in Knox County. Ray Miller, Monmouth, was camporee leader. Other camporees were held in Stark and McDonottgh coun* ties. Programs at the three camporees included competitive events, display events, demonstrations, adventure trails, field sport activities and campfire programs. In addition to camporee activities, a number of other events were carried out by the Prairie Council over the weekend, including; canoe trips on the Spoon River and area lakes. Bus Driver King Of the Highways (Continued From Page 18) SPECIAL PRICES ON FULL CASES OF BEER, CANS or BOTTLES down the road at 68, passing somebody going 65, it seems to them we're going a hundred and ten." THERE MAY BE times, truth to tell, when Drury and other drivers wish they could wind up to 110. What with limited access highways, heavily regulated scheduling and laws which forbid drivers from on-road conversation, the job can be deadly dull. What's more, coach improvements are making it even duller. Greyhound now is building buses with electronic braking systems, automatic shifts and hush-hush turbine engines. Gone forever are the days when bus drivers Could keep busy just worrying whether they'd make the next town... ACTUALLY, SAYS One Montana - based Greyhound employe, "Driving is so simple today that it can be dangerous. I know several of us worry about nodding off on HEY!

I understand riding in a bus is 17 times safer than riding in a car. But there is always a risk. After several thousand miles, after 15 years — well, I drink a lot of black coffee." And monotony is not the only drawback on the job today. Drivers complain they have to double as baggage handlers at terminals which are too small to hire help. Others gripe that they receive he compensatory time or money for many nights spent away from home. There is a general agreement that they are not paid enough (an average $12,000 a year, which says one driver, "is not as much as garbagemen get in some cities"). Finally, since bus trade is largely seasonal, drivers say there are two distressing extremes: "Yoij work your rear off in summer Jthen you get laid off in winter." STILL, THERE IS no shortage of drivers. The" routine may be dreary at times — "have you ever gone all across the Montana plains?"; the rules a bit tough — no drinking within nine hours of driving; the hazards sometimes unseen — "hemorrhoids and hernias," says Jim Drury. But there is still the draw. "Well," grins one veteran, "when I'm wide open I really enjoy it. I'm bigger than the cars and I'm faster than the trucks. King of the road — that's it, I guess, I'm king of the road."
