Later in the decade fraternity

completely free student enter-

At this time, in the interests of
greater continuity, larger student
participation and sounder financ-

sold to the University. From
then on, The Daily grew quickly.
By 1932, the combined student
publications had accumulated
enough money to pay for the

LONDON - (P) - The Britisl
Cabinet was reported last nigh
to have decided to defy an orde
of Iranian Premier Mohammed
Mossadegh for the expulsion o
all British oilmen from the Mid-
dle East country.
The aging Iranian Premier, aft-
er repeated threats, finally gave
the order yesterday for some 300
British technicians to get out
within nine days. A British For-
eign Office spokesman said the
order was a "new and seriou
development which is under ur-
QUALIFIED SOURCES s a i d
Prime Minister Attlee and his
chief cabinet advisors reached
their decision immediately after
hearing about the order.
How they expect to make
their defiance effective may be

Britain has 10 warships sta-
tioned within 50 miles of her
giant Abadan refinery in Iran,
warplanes based in neighboring
Iraq and a brigade of parachute
troops only a few hours away.
T H E CANNY Mossadegh is
aware, however, that any use of
force by the British might be un-
popular, not only in the United
States and the world at large, but
also among many British voters
who go to the polls in a general
election Oct. 25.
N Attlee, who has been criti-
cized by Winston Churchill for
being too soft in the Iranian
oil crisis, is expected to confer
with the Conservative leader, as
well as Liberal leader Clement
Davies, and ask their support of
his policy to stay in Abadan.
The Prime Minister thus aims
to keep the issue out of politics
and assurea continuity of policy,
regardless whether Labor or Con-
servatives win in the election.
Mossadegh charged that the
presence of the technicians kept
him from making good on his
promises that he could hire other
foreign technicians to operate the
oil industry and sell the oil to
