land of Omar Khayyam long known as Persia one fifth the area of the United States but scarcely a hundredth as productive has quite a few monuments But theres none to a man named Mossa d e g h and theres not about to be one Moss adegh has two claims to distinction 1 He could cry at slight or W Earl Hall even no pre text being possessed of free Wheeling lachrymal ducts 2 He played hob with Irans vast petro leum industry by biting the hands that Mere feeding not only him but most of the 21 million others who make up the population of this mountainous and desert wasteland The former dictator

neighboring Iraq a land referred to in the Bible as Meso potamia In that area the Garden of Eden was found and lost It was the site of such places as Ur Babylon Ninevah and Samorra The name Baghdad calls up vis ions of Arabian Nights Industry Courted Whereas Iran kicked its petrol eum industry in the teeth Iraq has courted it Something more than half of the vast income re ceived from oil is
