TEHERAN-The Iranian crisis now ap-
pears to have become an endemic dis-
ease, like malaria. So far as can be judg-
ed, the patient has survived the present at-
tack. But there is one vital theme that must
be stressed in this last of a series of reports
from Iran.
Soon or late the disease will prove mor-
tal-Iran and the Middle East will be lost
to the West-unless a drastic but imagi-
native cure is undertaken by America
and Britain.
The reasons are obvious enough. The
Shah, the official government and the Iran-
ian army are all progressively losing author-
ity in Iran, as misery and hopelessness more
and more encourage the masses to take des-
perate steps. Even today, the Kremlin's Tu-
deh party is /the only real organization in
the country. This is a situation made to order
for the Soviet planners, who now plainly
hope to cripple the Western alliance by the
capture of the Middle East before many
more months have passed.
What can happen is easy to envision. On
some pretext or other-most probably as a
protest against the best oil deal the British
government can conceivably offer-a new
wave of strikes will be launched.,The official
Iranian government, its hands partly tied
by the fiery, unreasoning natiofialism that
now grips all classes, will at first be weak.
The army will be scattered to deal with the
disorders, from Khuzistan to Tabriz, from.
Teheran to Shira.
* * *
DESPITE THE optimistic denials of offi-
cial American and British sources, it
can now be stated on rather positive author-
ity that the Soviets have prepared for the
above situation by organizing "liberation"
forces on their side of the border. Specifi-
cally, the masters of the Kremlin have avail-
able two "liberation" forces of approximate-
ly 5000 warlike Barzani Kurds and between
5000 and 10,000 Soviet-born Azerbaijanis.
The result will be a foregone conclusion, if
these forces are launched across the border
when the army is already atomized into a
police force and the whole country is already
on the verge of chaos. With this sort of dan-
ger obviously in the offing, the Iranians des-
perately need three things. They need a
strong government, that can deal firmly
with the fanatics of the Fedayan Islam and
their allies, and thus create a new atmos-
phere in which Iran's basic problems can
be discussed without hysteria. They need
further a sort of crash program, to relieve
the existing unemployment and alleviate
misery. And they need finally a long term
program of social and economic' betterment.
All these needs are actually more ur-
gent than a settlement of the oil contro-
versy, which has only reached the present

acute stage because the feckless folly of
American and British policy aborted all
earlier attempts to deal with the really
basic troubles here.
Unfortunately it is much simpler to des-
cribe what is needed than to achieve it. For
the American policy makers, there are sev-
eral agonizing choices to be made. The first
is whether and how much to work with the
The temptation is to avoid presenting an
Anglo-American common front, because the
mere British name itself is now so bitterly
hated here.
AS A PRACTICAL matter, however, Anglo-
American interests in Iran and the Mid-
dle East coincide so closely that the odium of
the British partnership has simply got to be
accepted. It must, however, be a real part-
nership. Above all it must be based on the
clearest possible advance understanding that
the British will forget the imperialist past
and will co-operate fully with the United
States ,if we, in our turn, cease our pallid
hand wringing F and bring to bear in the
Middle East our full influence and power.
American choice number two is how to
bring our influence to bear. Again it is
tempting to go on with the old pious
lectures. In fact, however, these will not
serve. If need be, considerable political
risks may have to be run, and fairly harsh
diplomatic measures may have to be used,
in order to bring home to the inflamed
and staggering ill-informed Iranians the
crude realities of their situation.
American choice number three is whether
to support this effort in Iran as it mpst be
supported. There is no use saying that
Iran ought by rights to be a rich country
needing no money from us. Unless the Am-
erican' effort in Iran is generously sustained
with funds, at least in the first stages, it
will not be acceptable to the Iranians and
it will fail. At a rough guess a sum in the
neighborhood of $250,000,000 is now needed
to launch a serious program of political
stabilization and economic betterment in
Iran and elsewhere in the Middle East.
Clearly some sort of Anglo-American joint
body is required to give overall direction to
this large and complex program that must
embrace other Middle Eastern countrieg as
well as Iran. Clearly also, the program will
fail if it is handled on the committee sys-
tem within the dark recesses of the Ameri-
can government itself. Add up all these re-
quirements. It becomes clear that the task
now ahead could hardly be more difficult or
more taxing.
Unhappily, the price of shirking this task
will be disaster, irrevocable, irremediable,
and at a rather early date.

MR. BOLFRY. Presented by the Arts
Theater Club at 2092 East Washington.
THOSE OF YOU who have been attending
closely to the Arts Theater Club's series
of productions during this past season have
by now, as have , arrived at a strong sus-
picion that the group is incapable of any-
thing resembling incompetence. I therefore
feel a certain familiarity, amounting almost
to monotony, upon being once more called
upon to record my happy reactions to their
Mr. Bolfry.
This is an embarrassing thing for a man
who has lately been accused of being im-
possible to please; yet I am constrained to
report that the Club's production, which
sopened last night, is as fresh and engaging
as anyone with reasonable standards might
This is, so far as anyone knows, the first
time the present play has been done in
America. Happily it is not the sort of
thing we sometimes get in imported works
having to do with Scottish backgrounds.
There is none of the heavy whimsy, the
unpleasant archness, or the sticky coy-
ness about Loch Lomond and oatmeal or
bagpipes, clans, and whiskey. This is
fantasy on an eminently mature level.
Briefly, the story has to do with a High-
lands minister whose concrete Presbyterian
principles collide with the more flexible atti-
tudes of his niece and a couple of British
enlisted men billeted in his church during
the late war. There is a great deal of elab-
orate theological disputation concerning
such things as the Conecpt of the Elect and
the Damned, Infant Damnation, and Pre-
destination, The dissenters, in their anxiety.
for further light on all this, invoke a rep-
resentative from the select hierarchy of
Hell and invite him to air his own views.
Plenty of opportunity to be quaint, yet
there is, praise God, none of it.
Participating were Jeremy Lepard and
Warren Pickett as the two soldiers and
Joyce Edgar as the niece. Their perform-
ances were uniformly fine. I liked best Pat
Newhall's absolutely golden delivery of the
minister's wife, a woman who subjects all
that happens here to rational scrutiny; and
finds none of it untoward. Dana Elcar, who
is, for my money, the best all-around per-
former in these parts, was flawless as the

"Henry V" (Cutting) by William Shakes-
peare; "Century" by Jackie Dougan Jack-
son, Grad.; "Ladies in Retirement" (Act
One), by Percy and Denham, and "Private
Lives" (Act One), by Noel Coward. Pre-
sented by the Department of Speech.
THIS LABORATORY bill of plays, which
closed last night, was varied and consis-
tently enjoyable. It introduced some re-
freshing new talent.
Richard Burgwin was a capable, eloquent
King Henry. He received good support from
William Hadley, ;who brought polish and
variety to the role of the Chorus, Charlotte
Matthews as'Princess Katherine, and Teetah
Dondero as her lady-in-waiting.
"Century" is an inteiwsting allegory-no
mean feat. This play, an original, contrasts
pastoral life with city life. The city episode
is an effective blend of gentleness and vice,
eloquence and sarcasm, Ed Griffin gave the
most impressive performance in this play.
He is a newcomer with a powerful, moving
voice and striking stage presence.
Another promising newcomer, Joanne
Kaiser, headed the cast of "Ladies in Re-
tirement" as the homicidal Ellen Creed. She
has an admirably simple delivery which in-
vested her role with sincerity and life. Ann
Drew created a finely balanced portrait as
the victim and was wonderfully fluttery at
Diane Faulk's perfect control enabled her
to steal the final show, "Private Lives," as a
Southern belle. Mary Anne McCusker as
Amanda was occasionally callow, but at her
best she tossed off innuendos with profes-
sional abandon. These two had adequate
support from VictorHughes and Bernard
The sets were uniformly excellent-taste-
fully designed and well constructed.
