IRAN SEEN U.S. ASSET

WASHINGTON – (AP) U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas said Sunday night that if Premier Mossadegh of Iran gets his land reform program going the U.S. should "tie on to it" with all the help we can give.

Douglas, interviewed on CBS' "Man of the Week" television program, said this was one example of his frequently-stated policy of backing up, with technical help, any "strong, vigorous, anti-Communist nationalist movement" in Asia or the Middle East.

He said the situation In Iran, with the land in the hands of a few men, had at one time seemed "just ripe for Communist exploitation." But Mossadegh, he said, had defeated the Communists politically, and the United States should offer the Iranian premier help in carrying out his program.

Douglas said he also believed that the Iranian oil situation should be solved by the world bank or some other international body to pay off British investments there, and that the U.S. should then send private oil experts to help Iran produce oil.

Asked if he were recommending this country "doing what British did", Douglas replied: "Oh heaven forbid!"

He said that "what the British did" consisted of "looking down the long nose to little people."

The United States, he said, should lend technical help, back the loan "and let the oil start running" without interference in Iranian politics.

"The alternative", he said, "is Russia taking over Persian oil".

Douglas said an example of this form of aid to underdeveloped countries already had occurred in Burma.
