MONDAY, AUGUST 17, 1!)S3 Two Old M7n^— " BLYTHEVIU.K (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Rhee and Mossadegh Tread Heavily on Explosive World By JAMES MARLOff WASHINGTON (AP) — Two strong-willed old men, Sygnman Rhee and Mohammed Mossadegh, walk dangerously close to the woJMossaclegh, walk dangerously close to the worl hands. Both move toward the climax of their lives in their late 70s. And the best the world — the Jon-Communist world, at least — do is watch them, hold Its breith, and just hope they'll be shrewd «nd nimble enough not tc stumble or fumble. Rhee, the peppery President o] South Korea, is 78. Mossadegh Iran's Premier, Is believed close to 78 too. Both march into the future as determinedly as II they had a lease on life. But— If Rhee, exasperated by the forthcoming peace conference wrecks the truce by attacking the Chinese, what then? The Chinese tetm capable of slaughtering Rhee and his people. Long-time Politicians Would the United States and the United Nations stand idly by? Or would they go In once more to bail out the South Koreans, thus renewing the war which might soon become bigger than Korea? Mossadegh, became Iran's No.l man Sunday when the Shah fled Into exile. What now? Has Mos- sadegh so weakened the structure of government that, unwittingly, he has opened the door for the Iranian Communists to bovmce him and take power? That would make Iran another Russian satellite. What would the United States ind the United Nations do In that case, since Iran is strategic in the Middle East and its rich oil fields are important to both Russia and the West? Debt Ceiling Issue Seen As Milestone WASHINGTON — Sen'. Byrd (D-Va.) said today he regards the controversy over lifting the ceiling on the national debt as "one of the milestones in the preservation of the solvency of our government," "If we Increase the debt limit now to 290 billion, it will reach that and then go to 300 billion and then over the precipice of financial disaster," Byrd said in a Copyrighted Interview with the U. S. News and World Report. "I feel it is virtually important not to exceed the present debt limit because I think if we do we will go to greater expenditures and greater deficts. . . we can retain this present Rhee has made it abundantly clear what he wants, in Korea: unification under him. Mossadegh's ultimate ambition for Iran is far from clear, unless it is making over the country to his liking. Both men have been in the politics of their homeland most of their lives. Because the two are intense nationalists, both are national heroes. Both use their popu larity for all its worth. Where they differ profoundly is in the way they go about getting what they want. The chunky, well-fed looking Rhee is defiant as a rooster. He keeps the aircvackling with pronouncements on his attitudes and desires. Not so Mossadegh. That lean man with the mournful face looks hungry. He has fits of fainting and weeping spells which he manages in public places. He doesn't cry in private conferences. He has stalked success like a cat, eliminating opponents one step at a time, letting his people and the world guess where he'll jump next. Rose After World War II For half a century there was no doubt about the prominence of Rhee among his Koreans. But Mos- sadegh, a Johnny-come-lately to nigh office, was a minor figure in Iran until he became premier a few years ago. For years he had been a minor member of Parliament, making a hobby of criticizing the government. Although he was reportedly one of the richest of Iranians, h consistently backed liberal measures for the people. He swam to the top on the wave of nationalism which swept over Iran after World War II, appealing o the Iranians' ancient pride, denouncing foreign interference in lis country's affairs, and finding he British a handy target. For 40 years, through their ownership of Iranian oil production, he British had been a force, per- the controlling force, in Iran. Mossadegh led the Iranians in browing out the British and taking he oil. That's a problem that has never After 10 Years Annulment BALTIMORE Ifl — The 10-year marriage of the parents of five children has been annulled. -. . , , I The marriage of Mr. and Mrs. hebt ceiling there is some hope of ]Earl Bobbins of Baltimore was balancing the budget.

Actor Lawrence Tierney Freed On Assault Charge NEW YORK W— Actor Lawrence Tierney, who once portrayed out law John Dillinger in the movies was acquitted yesterday of charges that he hit a night club pianist on the head with ft microphone.

But Mossadegh moved from one Internal crisis to another until now the question of a settlement on oil is overshadowed by the question of Iran's whole future. Educated In U. S. Rhee, on the other hand, had been a Korean rallying point most of his life. It was only natural he should become president of South Korea when the people had their first chance to elect one, In 19948. He began fighting the Korean monarchy for reforms In 1894. For this he was Jailed and tortured. He came to this country, Was educated at Harvard and Princeton, returned to Korea when the Japanese grabbed it. He soon had to flee. Prom then until the end of World War II he was in exile, fighting for Korean independence, and for more than 20 of those years he had been considered by Koreans the president-in-exile of the Korean Republic which didn't exist. Mossadegh, too, had his troubles with monarchy in his homeland. Long ago he was jailed by Reza Shah, father of Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlevi, who had to flee from Mossadegh Sunday. Mossadegh evened an old score with that one. Maryland Drought Aids Underwater Farms ANNAPOLIS. Md. W) — Maryland land farmers were hit recently by a lengthy dry sped. During the same drought, underwater farms were prospering — as a direct result of the dry spell. Chairman Arthur H. Brlce of the Tidewater Fisheries Commission explained that during the drought less fresh water ran into the Chesapeake Bay, thus boosting the amount of salt which favors the rowth of oysters and other sea- foods.
