ARROWSMITH DENVER Eisen- hower today granted the new government of Iran 45 million dollars in emergency economic aid in an obvious move to prevent any Iranian alignment with Russia. The President acted just 10 days after Prime Minister Fazollah Za- hedi appealed to him for swift assistance, saying Iran's treasury was empty and that money was needed urgently to enable the coun- try "to emerge from a state of economic and financial chaos." i Last Tuesday Eisenhower made public a reply assuring Zahedi the United States would give "sympa- thetic consideration" to his appeal. Today the summer White House issued this statement: "In response to a request for urgent assistance from the new government of Iran, the President has made available on an emer- gency basis 45 million dollars which will be used for the immed- iate economic assistance Iran in accordance with the procedures of the Foreign Operations Admin- istration under the Mutual Secur- ity Act. "This amount is in addition to existing United States technical assistance and military programs in Iran. "There is great need for immed- iate assistance to1 restore a mea- sure of stability and establish a foundation for greater economic development and improvement In the living standards for all the people of Iran. "It is hoped that, with our assis- tance, there will be an increase in the internal stability of Iran which will allow the development of a healthy economy to which an early effective use of Iran's rich resources will contribute."

A Socialist victory, however, would bring in a policy of unarmed neutrality in the cold war, which Moscow demands. For most Germans, however, the main question was: Which policy offers the most hope of achieving that alljGerman dream of reuniting both the Soviet-occupied East zone and West Germany in peace and freedom? Tass said last night that the mo- ment Adenauer achieves his goal of a Western military alliance "it will become impossible to revive the unity of Germany." Dulles declared Adenauer's de- feat would be disastrous for the prospects of German unification. Although observers generally de- clined to speculate on the outcome of the voting, at least one thing seemed certain; the Communist party won't win. The German Red organization has grown so weak during the cold war that it may not even carry one of the 484 parliamentary seats at stake. Apparently realizing their weak- ness, the Communists switched ur- ing the campaign's last week to plans of violence and sabotage de- signed to wreck the election. Thousands of tough Red agents were sent in from East Germany to raid polling booths, steal ballot boxes, attack election officials and incite riots. West German federal police ar- rested over agents and mob- ilized four million volunteer youths and athletes to help guard the polls against attacks by any agents who might have slipped through the police net.
