MONDAY, AUGUST 17, 1953 BLYTHEVILLK (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Revolt Crushed, Mossadegh Has Supreme Power in Iran TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Aged Premier Mohammed Mossadegh held supreme power in Iran today after crushing a bloodless attempt to unseat him by supporters of Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlevi. The young ruler and his beautiful Queen Soraya fled to neighboring Iraq and Communist mobs screamed for an end to the monarchy. Acting swiftly in the wake of the attempt against him early yesterday, Mossadegh jailed top leaders of his opposition and dissolved the remnant of the Parliament. Though tile 34-year-old monarch had not abdicated, the government Was believed readying a regency council to take over his powers. The leader of the coup attempt, Maj. Gen. Pazellah Zahedi, hid in the hills. In a statement to newsmen he claimed the Shah had given him an imperial decree ousting Mossadegh and proclaiming Zahedi Premier. Police and troops, armed with rifles and sten guns, started a determined hunt for the rebel leader. Tehran radio broadcast orders from Mossadegh to customs and racks and bases. Yesterday the city had bristled with troops pro tecting the government against their titular commander in chief, the Shah. Along the capital's main streets today shop owners cleared away broken glass left by anti-Slwh demonstrators who stoned the monarch's portraits in shop windows last night. The mob of Communist and Mossadegh supporters—more than 100,000 strong—had packed the capital's main Parliament Square last night, howling for the ruler's blood. Banners demanded "Death to the Shah" and "End the dy- frontier forces to prevent his escape abroad at any cost. Tensions Lessened Tension lessened in Tehran today as truckloads of armed troops and Sherman tanks called out by Moss- adegh rumbled back to their bar- Commodity And Stock Markets- New York Cotton Oct .

Fatemi. in a newspaper blast called the Shah a "snake" who had "robbed the property and chastity of the people." No Statement There was no immediate statement from the Shah in Baghdad. He and his queen flew in his private plane from a Caspian Sea resort in north Iran where they had been vacationing. They arrived 'n the Iraq capital unheralded and went into seclusion in a government guest house. The Shah's flight to Iraq drew new government blasts at Britain, a favorite whipping boy for Moss- adegh and his followers. Fatemi told the mob the Shah, "a traitor . . . ran away to the nearest British Embassy." This referred to Iraq's friendship pacts with Britain.

The POW Command said the delay would not affect Tuesday's debut reduce Wednesday's shipment to 600. The UNC has been sending back about 2,400 Reds at Pnnmunjom daily. The Communists said their big shipment Tuesday would include V5 British and 300 south Koreans. They usually have been sending back about 400 Allied POWs n day. There was no reason given immediately for the stepup.

I Waters said that men from othei companies also were taken away on trucks suddenly but he did not know the number. Blytheville Artist Invited to Show Work in Memphis Samuel p.

BIG FOUR (Continued from Page D War IT. In recent months there ha; been a marked spurt in sentiment for unification. As Western diplomats here and in other capitals saw the Moscow note, the idea was to capitalize on this sentiment in an effort to defeat the Adenauer government, which has been friendly with the Western Powers. The invitation to East German representatives to visit Moscow ,vas seen, likewise, as an effort to juild up the prestige of the East German government and to try to nit 'Adnmmer on the spat for refus- '^ ng to agree to Communist pro- "~ posals for all-Gcrmnn elections in- lependently of the Western nations. The fact that the 14-page note i'Eis released through the Soviet- icenseci German news agency ,DN offered a further indication liat the note WAS written primarily for political purposes. West Couficlrnt The three Western nations had proposed on July 15—also with an eye on the September elections —that the Big Four foreign ministers meet in late September to arrange j for a German election. The Western Powers have maintained that this .should be arranged by the occupying nation-;, rather than by the two German governments. Western officials are openly confident that in free elections throughout the country, the Communists would be soundly defeated. Moscow replied to this Western proposal Aug. 5, but the reply was generally regarded as confusing, and officials of the United States, Britain and France are to meet Jn Paris this week to consider what reply they should make. Moscow's note proposed an "immediate agreement" between the West and East German parlia- iients to form a unified, government or, if that was too difficult, provisional regime with limited Manila Soldier Killed in Action Sst. lie Charles DwiRht Tennlson. husband ot Mrs Hellen P.
