With Revolt
Iranian Officers
Scatter Leaflets
TEHRAN, Iran-(P)-An anony-
mous group calling themselves ac-
tive Army officers last night ac-
cused Premier Mohammed Mos-
sadegh of being a "foxy, stubborn
old man" and threatened to lead
an armed revolt to protect the
The announcement, in the form
of leaflets scattered in Tehran's
streets, threatened to bring to a
head a constitutional dispute be-
tween the Premier and young
Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlevi
which has been boiling since Feb.
2 when a mob chased Mossadegh
out of his house.
S* * *
THE ARMY officers made their
threat on the eve of a meeting of
the Mailis, lower house of Parlia-
ment, at which sufficient deputies
were expected to be present to act
on a resolution separating the
powers of the government andthe
1 royal court.
The resolution interprets the
constitution as Mossedegh
wants-depriving the Shah of
control over any government
agency and especially the Army
and security forces.
But many Army and police offi-
Scers regard the Shah as their ac-
tual as well as constitutional com-
mander in chief.
dThe scattered leaflets, headed
"declaration of danger by active
Army officers" said in part:
"The Iranian nation, which
is now in the hands of foreign
agents, is nearing the end of
its life.
"Foreign spies are pushing it to-
wards death. We, soldiers and of-
ficers on duty, in order to safe-
guard the monarchy and the
greatness of Iran and save our
motherland from the hands of
foreigners and their tools . . . de-
clare that in the near future if
this foxy, stubborn old man Mos-
sadegh Gnd his criminal collabora-
tors do not cease their impertinent
activities we will leave our serv-
ice and together will rise and do
whatever we can by sacrifices on
behalf of our dear motherland."
The reference to foreign agents
appeared to be to the Tudeh Com-
munist party which is giving Mos--
sadegh energetic support in his
clash with the Shah.
'U' Students
Report Clean
Florida Record
Three hundred University spring
vacationers came back from Fort
Lauderdale, Florida, scene of col-
lege vandalism, with deep sun-
tans and clean records, local re-
ports indicate.
R According to the students who
were at the well known vacation
spot, the vandalism and pranks
took place before most University
students arrived.
HOWEVER, Sally Gouldthorpe
'53E, said the antics of other col-
a lege students made it more diffi-
cult for University students to ob-
tain hotel rooms and other hous-
ing accommodations.
One coed claimed that most
students involved in the pranks,
which ranged from throwing co-

conuts through car windows to
parading nude on the beaches,
were from the University of Vir-
ginia, Michigan State College
and Miami University.
After the week of trouble ended
in a fatal auto accident involving
five students, city officials and
students met to discuss plans for
future years to avoid a recurrance
of this year's events.
Mike Scherer, '54, explained that
suggestions to place limitations
on college students were voted
down largely because they were
impractical and because "Fort
Lauderdale does not want to lose
their college trade which amounts
to 16,000 student visitors during
spring vacations."

the move a "pretty routine thing."
He pointed out that Summerfield

Two Added
Convoys Due
Actual Exchange
Set for Monday
MUNSAN - (A)-- UN war-
planes roared northward across
the cold Korean skies early today
on a hunt for the first convoy of
Allied sick and wounded rolling
southward from Communist prison
eamps to freedom.
The planes had a new mission-
to fly a friendly vigil over the con-
THEIR JOB was to make sure--
to make absolutely sure - that
other Allied warplanes intent on
their hunt for Red transport do
not bomb and blast the freedom
convoy by mistake.
The Reds said two more con-
voys would start out Wednesday
from camps in the mountainous
north-central section of Com-
munist Korea.
In all, the Reds will send home
120 Americans and 480 other cap-
tives, mostly South Koreans.
If Communist advices proved
true, the first convoy left the
Chonma camp in extreme North-
western Korea 14 miles from the
Yalu River border to Manchuria
at 6 a.m.
t* * *
MARKED with bright red flags
and banners on each truck, the
convoy will take 21/2 days to reach
the Red armistice camp at Kae-
song. The acual exchange will
start Monday.
Red staff officers disclosed at
Panmunjom early today that a
25-truck convoy would start out
at 6 a.m. tomorrow from the
Manpo camp on the Yalu River
125 miles inland from the Yel-
low Sea.
A second convoy of 20 trucks, the
Reds said, would leave at the
same time from the Pyoktong
prison camp, 58 miles southwest
of Manpo.
There was no hint as to the na-
tionality of the captives.
The Chonma camp, 37 miles east
of the Yalu River delta city of Sin-
uiju, is only 175 air miles from
Kaesong. Manpo is 225 air miles
away. But the distances are much
farther on the winding mountain-
ous roads.

undoubtedly discussed this matter
with political leaders and people
in the state before acting." Dorr
said that he does not believe how-

played any part in the matter.

had to be taken at face value, that
Summerfield's reason for resigning
be accepted as valid.
