Schlosser and Co. of Alton, City Clerk AJvh WooU'idge reported. reforms turned suddenly—but by no means surprisingly—into vio- ent political uproar. Apparently this has been sparked by diverse groups, each vith reasons of its own for waning to smother the shah's reform program. Street mobs in Tehran, always an important political factor in ran, are marshaled from various slamic societies, from the ranks f bitter anti-shah nationalists, rom among the bullies, thugs and iffraff of the bazaars They can. ie used by any who can buy lem, to support almost any ause. Involved in this new attack »n he reform-minded rhah, appar- ntly, are big landlerds, mullahs f the Shiite Moslems, nationalist joliticians who follow aged former Premier Mohnmmed Mossa- legh, and Tudeh party Commu- lists and their foil iwers. The shah himself is a Shiite Moslem, as are the majority of ranians. The mullahs bitterly re- ent his land reform program be ause, apparently, they feel it en- angers their great acreage hold- ngs. Landlords have similar reasons or resenting the shah's plans. Na- ionalist politicians long have han- <ered and plotted to overthrow he constitutional m< narchy. And the Tudel Communists—though underground and reduced in power over the past decade—are in the show for the usual • obvious reasons—to take advantage of any urbulent situation.

Negroes TOKYO (AP)—Chinese ors;ani zations have expressed suppoit powerful forces in Tehran. In a plebiscite early this year, h? country voted overwhelmingly for the shah's program. This en- visicns breaking up big estates amon<; small ( farmers, sale of government-owned factories to finance repayment of landlords, amendments to election laws to prevent fraud, nationalization of forests, establishment of a force to battle illiteracy, and u profit- sharing plan for factory workers. Both Communists and nationalists accuse the shah of attempting to foist a fraud on the people. But the vote for the program was so overwhelming that it left no doubt how the country felt about it. A political upheaval in Iran is always possible, no matter how much the country might support the shah. Iran is a keystone of the U.S.-backed Central Treaty Organization and a pillar of the Turkey-Iran defenses against Communist designs on the Middle East. Mo.scow, therefore, would have a large stake in Iranian violence. for American against racial Negro struggle.? discrimination in the United States, the officail New China News Agency reported today.
