Summons 19-Year Olds After Reports of Kurdish Attacks on Garrisons JOSEPH C. GOODWIN TEHRAN. March 21. <A*>—Iran’s 19-year-olds were summoned to the colors today in the wake of reports that three Iranian army garrisons were under attack by Kurdish tribesmen in the isolated region near the border of Iraq. At the same time, leaders of i? 5 leftist tudeh party were called into private session and rightist elements expressed belief the tudeh party might lead leftist demonstrations against the gov-ernment because of its appeal to the United Nations security council against continued presence of Russian troops in Iran. Fear Communist Coop (In Baghdad, a former Iraq diplomat declared Tuesday upon returning from Tehran that the tudeth party could stage a coup detat at any time. He added: the jp-eat fear in Iran today is that if the Iranians officially announce that they will take the matter to the UNO, then the communists will be given the word to strike.”) Rightist deputy said Zia Edom, described by political writers as anti-Russian, and gereral-I known as a leading opponent S i.

Truman States Flatly That Monday Meeting of Council Won't Be Postponed By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON, March 21.-(AP)—Soviet Ambassador ndrei A. Gromyko said today that any hasty action by the United Nations security council on the Iranian dispute would merely complicate it. His comment was made shortly after a flat statement by President Truman that next Monday’s UNO meeting will not be postponed. Mr. Truman told his news con-3^--- ference today that the United States delegation will press for action in the explosive controversy despite Moscow’s request for a 16-day delay. Gromyko talked with reporters at the state department after a hurriedly-arranged 20-m i n u t e conference with Secretary Byrnes. The Soviet ambassador, who returned unexpectedly last night from New York, declined to tell newsmen Arhat he said to Byrnes, but he reiterated that Russia believes the Iranian case unquestionably should be delayed because negotiations are now under way between Iran and Russia. Could Complicate Matter Asked in what way these negotiations are taking place he re-plied they were being carried ,on through diplomatic channels and that for the security council to take any hasty action now would complicate the situation.

I said I felt that to do nothing was out of the question and the president agreed with me. As to the other two alternatives, the desirable thing to do from the point of view of our own tactics and safety was to take the in-lative and attack without further warning. It is axiomatic that the best defense is offense. It is always dangerous to wait and let that the situation could be made more clean cut from the point of view of public opinion if a further warning were given.” (During its hearings, closed a month ago, the committee learn-ed from state department records that Mr. Roosevelt warned the amba ssador in August. 1 \a 4 th , at the United States w<.uld take steps to defend its interests if Japan engaged in fur- Asia ) aggress,on towa rd southeast “War Cabinet” Met , At noon on that same Friday.

( Rabb »t) Goodwin and Mrs. Betty Boyd Goodwin, wife of James (Topper) Goodwin who was shot in the hip late Tuesday night, told officers how they had robbed 14 firms in 12 cities of more than 250 tires. Rabbit Goodwin told authorities that his brother and sister-in-law had participated in the robberies. He said that tires were taken from stores in Davis, Sulphur. Bristow Seminole, Prague, Tulsa, Muskogee, Hugo, Atoka, and twice each in Antlers and Ada. Scared Away In McAlester Goodwin said that he had not participated in either of the robberies in Ada and then told how they had been scared away from a place in McAlester. The group had several tires ready to load into their car when an officer walked by. Mrs. Goodwin said that she had not participated in all of the tire jobs, but knew about most of them as she went with her hus- opper Goodwin, on some of the numerous occasions. Stories Similar The woman told practically the same story as did her brother-in-law. In addition to the tire stealing deals, five cases in Ada were cleared up when Lindy Goodwin told how he hod purchased gasoline coupons from a negro, who had broken into five warehouses in Ada. Chief Dud Lester said mat 22 tires were stolen from Consumer’s Service Station and 16 were taken from the B. F Goodrich store. In addition to stealing tires in Antlers, a check protector was stolen from a store. 4 HS?? Goodwin told Chief Lester that his family did not start operating until July of last year but explained that all of the tire stealing had been going on since September. Silent On Hb “Fence” James (Topper) Goodwin is in Valley View hospital suffering from a gun shot wound received at Antlers late Tuesday night following a fight with Bill Gardner, sheriff 0 f Pushmataha county. His wife, Mrs. Betty Goodwin, and his brother, Lindy (Rabbit) Goodwin, are being held in Pushmataha county jail. Topper Goodwin learned early Tuesday afternoon that his broth-- was being held in the county jail at Antlers. He went to Antlers and took several means of trying to get a chance to talk with his brother. Officers said that when the jailer would not let Topper talk with his brother. Topper called for the sheriff and under an assumed name told the sheriff he was leaving the state for a week. He said that he was going to Texas and needed to talk with his brother. Less than five minutes after the conversation with Goodwin, the sheriff received a telephone call (rom Police Chief Dud Lester rn Ada, who told him that a warrant for the arrest of Topper Goodwin had been issued at Atoka. Sheriff Gardner rushed to the jail where He found Goodwin waiting for him and was still trying to persuade the jailed to give him entrance to the jail. Started To Ran The sheriff told him that he was Goodwin and started to place him in jail. Topper wheeled and *2/° * ra PP Ie wR h the sher-After some struggle in a small passageway of the jail, Goodwin turned loose the sheriff and started to run. Goodwin got out of the build-‘HK and had started for his car when Sheriff Gardner reached the jail house door and fired, hitting Goodwin in the hip. After receiving emergency treatment from a doctor at Antlers Goodwin was placed in an ambulance and returned to Ada where he was turned over to city and county authorities. Dynamite In Car Members of the Pushmataha county sheriffs force searched the Goodwin car and reported that they found four sticks of dynamite. Two sticks were tied together with some sewing thread and a cap with a short fuse had been attached. The other two sticks were lying loose iii the seat. .Neither members of the sheriff s force there nor local authorities have been able to get Goodwin to tell why he* had the explosives in the car.
