he had loft control of the car as
it rounded the curve. He also'

versity officials he did not have a
student driving permit. However,
no action was reported pending
against him.

Less than six hours before the
Mailis voted, the company an-
nounced in London it had pro-
tested against the parliamentary
moves to take over British oil in-
terests. The company repeated
past offers to adjust in Iran's
favor the trends of its conces-
sion, dated to run until 1993.
British foreign-office leaders
were at their desks throughout the
day, studying first-hand reports
of the situation, and planned to
be on duty today. A foreign-office
spokesman said about 3,500 Brit-
ons work for the company in Iran.
The British plan to send war-

THE MAJLIS acted in secret
session in recommending that
Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlevi
name the anti-British Mossadegh
to the premiership vacated Friday
night by the pro-western Hussein
Ala under pressure of the oil crisis
and threats of widespread demon-
strations on May Day.,.
The Majlis then voted in open
session to give the oil nationali-
zation proposal a rating of "tri-
ple urgency." In a matter of
hours, it approved the seizure.
The Senate, which has indicated
before it fully shares the Mailis'
sentiments, is to act next.

VIENNA, Austria-(RP)-Robert
Vogeler, pale and shaken from 17
months in the hands of Hungary's
Communist police, got his bartered
release yesterday and stammered
mental and physical coercion at-
tended his confession to being an
American spy.
"I think there was some truth
in my testimony, which I read last
night for the first time," he told a
news conference. "But I think un-
der the law any testimony obtained
by mental or physical pressure is
not legal and is coerced."
The 39-year-old assistant vice
president of International Tele-
phone and Telegraph Company
was brought this morning to the
Austrian border at Nickelsdorf,
where he was met by an American
legation car.
Shortly afterward, the Hungari-
an and United States governments
announced that the young busi-
nessman had been released on
these conditions:
1. The Hungarian consulates in
New York and Cleveland, O.,
closed following Vogeler's arrest
Nov. 18, 1949, will be allowed to re-
2. The United States also will
rescind its ban on American travel-
ers to Hungary.

WASHINGTON - ?P) - Harold
Stassen proposed yesterday Presi-
dent Truman invite Gen. Douglas
MacArthur to the White House for
a "reconciliation" conference, but
Stassen got no immediate reply.
Stassen, University of Pennsyl-
vania president who ran for the
Republican nomina'tion for Presi-
dent in 1948, gave reporters copies
of a letter to President Truman
"For the good of America please
permit me to respectfully suggest a
reconciliation be brought about be-
tween you and Gen. MacArthur. If
the disagreement runs its bitter
course to the end, whatever the
outcome may be, it can do no good
for our country.
"I therefore ask you with humili-
ty that you consider extending an
invitation to Gen. MacArthur to
meet and confer with you."
STASSEN delivered the letter
personally to President Truman's
aides at the White House. He also
sent a telegram to MacArthur, who
yesterday was receiving another
triumphal greeting in New York,
