TEN Skah. Asks Financial Aid For Iran's Empty Coffers By RICHARD EHRMAN TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — The world had a pointed appeal for financial help toda; from Iran's Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlevi. He indicated that even Russian rubles wouldn' * go begging. The 33-year-old monarch, back in power after the violent overthrow of ex-Premier Mohammed Mossadegh last vveek, told newsmen at a palace garden party yesterday hi" nation's treasury "is very empty." "Immediate help is imperative, the Shah declared. "We need helj in the next few days. We do no ask any nation in particular ant we are not beggars. However, must have help now if we are save the country." Asked . whether Iran would be willing to accept help from Russia the Shah said, "We are ready tf accept help from anybody." His new finance minister, AI Amini. underlined the emptiness o the treasury. His first job, he told newsmen, is "to find enough mon ey to pay the August salaries of government employes." "If help does not come," saic the Shah, "we will have a nightmarish struggle with the present situation." Oil Markets Lost Iran's acute financial troubles result from her loss of oil markets following Mossadegh's nationalza' tion of the British-ozned Anglo- Iranian Oil Co.'s vast holdings in the country. The stubborn old ex-Premier's refusal to compensate Britain for the seized properties and lost oil revenues brought a British boycott of Iranian oil which cut off the royalties that had been the chief support of Iran's treasury. Neither the Shah nor Mossa- degh's conqueror, Premier Gen. Fazollah Zahedi, showed any public inclination, however, to get together with Britain.

Most Western observers concede that Mossadegh did such a good job of making the British the butt of aroused Iranian nationalism, th( new government must be extreme ly cautious in any renewal ot re lations. They anticipate, however that eventually Zahcdl will be able to work out a "reasonable" settle ment with the British. Midnight Sprinkle Is Long Chore STANTON, Tex. (ff) — Mrs. Yuell Winslow, a pretty young woman, gets up at midnight every night and drives 28 miles to move sprinkler system. It's a system tha makes three inches of "rain" on 9C acres of paetureland grass every 1 days, and it makes the grass green for the cattle Mrs. Winslow anc her husband own. The sprinklers are on their ranch 14 miles out from town. They have to be moved every six hours to keep up the irrigation schedule. Henry Celf, ranch foreman, makes threi oi the sprinkler moves every 24 lours, but the Winslows take the midnight trick. The sprinkler pipe is 1,050 fee ong and mounted on wheels.

We should noL nt- tethpt to require a conformity in thought and beliefs that hns no relevancy to n present danger to our security." The government appeal urgueci that the first count "cannot include a First Amendment question because the defendant volunteered his statement." and it added: "Privilege, if any, under the First Amendment was thereby waived."
