Jewish War Veterans yesterday set up a 24-hour guard at the West iami Synagogue and Lou Phillips, national vice commander of the JWV. said similar guards were planned in Coral Gables and at other places. Sheriff J. B. Henderson said .bout 50 veterans had been depu- ized at their own request. He said they were to maintain the watch at the West Miami Synagogue. In a statement released last night the rabbis affirmed their "com- plete faith in the determination and willingness of properly constituted authorities, augmented by the FBI, to protect synagogues and all houses of worship from dyna- mitings." The statement said action by the JWV was "seemingly well in- tended" but that it is "considered inadvisable." Recent dynamitings have dam- aged a Jewish synagogue in Miami and Carver Village, a Negro hous- ing project. An unexploded stick of dynamite was found in front of a Coral Gables synagogue Sunday morning. No one has been injured in the bombings and no arrests have been made.

"Ht with a and ht hii v Blood TEHRAN, Iran W) Opposition Deputies made a bold bid today to topple the Government of Pre- mier Mohammed Mossadegh as a nationalist mob battered on the Parliament (Majlis) gates, shCut- ing for the blood of the' aged pre- mier's opponents. But.the frail premier, in a two and a half hour speech defending his regime, said he would stay in office unless and until the Majlis voted him out. The session ended after his speech. Inside the packed building sev- eral persons were injured as sup- porters and opponents of the Gov- ernment fought briefly with fists and feet, delaying the Parliament session. Verb-ally Attack Premier When the Majlis chamber finally was cleared of press and public and the session opened, opposition Deputies at once leaped to verbally attack the Premier, whose oil nationalization program ejected the British-owned Anglo-Iranian Oil Company and ended Iran's chief revenues from oft production. Yelling at the top of their lungs, the opposition accused Mossadegh of leading Iran into terror and ruin and demanded that fie resign. The. crowd outside, realizing that the eight-month-old Government was at stake, raced for radio loud- speakers to hear the broadcast of the session. Troops Parked Outside Some 500 army troops, armed with rifles and bayonets, were parked outside the building in trucks. Opposition Deputies didn't heed the clamor outside. As Mossadegh walked unsteadily to the rostrum, his opponents in the chamber jeered, booed and banged on their desks in any angry uproar. Mossadegh threatened to go out- side to deliver his address, but finally yielded the floor to oppo- nents, telling them to talk first. The Premier had been slated to deliver an ultimatum to the West to start buying Iranian oil within 10 days. If the West, did sum'ably the oil would be' offered: to the Soviet bloc.

Lamar Caudle, as a public official guilty of indiscretions amounting "to a breach of your public trust" while head of the department's tax fraud division.

Nixon (R-Calif) said mean- while that both McGrath and Secretary of the-Treasury Snyder 'should be fired" because of the ;ax scandals.
