Longines Chronoscope [With Henry F. Grady], 24Oct51

Opening commercial for Logines Wittnauer Watch Company. Main title: typewriter typing it out. A Television Journal of the Important Issues of the Hour

16:00:54 Frank Knight w/ Frazier Hunt co-hosting w/ William Bradford Huie, editor of American Mercury. Guest is Henry Grady, ex-Ambassador to Iran since Jun50 says the US was aware that something needed to be done to settle the oil question. Iranian govt. had before their Parliament a supplementary agreement, signed but not ratified, to one they had signed in 1933 which would increase royalties. Originally 13-15% royalties; supplemental would about double it to 25 to 30%.

16:03:15 Hunt: What royalites were we paying to Saudi Arabia? Well shortly after that we went to 50/50 basis which was an increase over what we had been paying (a considerable increase).

16:03:58 Huie: Were the British at fault that they weren t meeting our terms? It wasn t not meeting our terms but making a number of non-monetary concessions. Razmara became PM a few days before I arrived & he was anxious to get the supplement ratified. I believe if the British had given some non-monetary concessions...I mean employ more Iranians in the plants, matter of prices charged for oil w/in Iran, only 5% was being sold to Iran (thought they should have provided at same price as to British Navy & Air Force.

16:05:05 Huie: Did you urge the British to make those concessions? Yes....and this nationalization movement would not have started... Talk about British Labour Govt. not being very worried about nationalization.

16:06:15 Huie: By Nationalisation do you mean confiscation? It shouldn t mean that. Have the Iranians offered to pay the British for these properties? Yes, setting aside 25% of the proceeds for paying the British claims...but British think there won t be any profits...

16:07:12 Grady: ...vital importance for the future...industrialization, warfare... aka industrialisation

16:07:50 Hunt: ...biggest fear we have is the intrusion of Russia into this would Russia get this oil oul? Say we went from one failure to another & there was a coup d etat... Grady talks about moving a considerable amount by trucks, ships etc. if a govt. friendly to USSR got in. But then says: I don t think Russia could get any of the oil.

16:09:29 Huie: ...Mossadegh is a visitor in the United States, do you know him... Extremely well...he s extremely able, he s a patriot...I think he s misguided in the way he s carrying out the Nationalization Program...may be very harmful to his country. I doubt the Iranians can operate this industry themself. ...he s not easily influenced by anybody. We ve found that out. He s the man who makes the decisions...

President Carter State of the Union Address 1980 - Part One

Carter enters Congress with others. CU Members of Senate. Applause. Carter in crowd. Carter family on balcony.

Behind Carter during speech are Speaker of the House O Neill and Vice-President Mondale.

Speech topics: Iran hostage Crisis, Soviet invasion of Afghanistan

... Three basic developments have helped to shape our challenges: the steady growth and increased projection of Soviet military power beyond its own borders; the overwhelming dependence of the Western democracies on oil supplies from the Middle East; and the press of social and religious and economic and political change in the many nations of the developing world, exemplified by the revolution in Iran.


re Iran: In response to the abhorrent act in Iran, our Nation has never been aroused and unified so greatly in peacetime. Our position is clear. The United States will not yield to blackmail.

We continue to pursue these specific goals: first, to protect the present and long-range interests of the United States; secondly, to preserve the lives of the American hostages and to secure, as quickly as possible, their safe release, if possible, to avoid bloodshed which might further endanger the lives of our fellow citizens; to enlist the help of other nations in condemning this act of violence, which is shocking and violates the moral and the legal standards of a civilized world; and also to convince and to persuade the Iranian leaders that the real danger to their nation lies in the north, in the Soviet Union and from the Soviet troops now in Afghanistan, and that the unwarranted Iranian quarrel with the United States hampers their response to this far greater danger to them.

If the American hostages are harmed, a severe price will be paid. We will never rest until every one of the American hostages are released.

We can provide complete transcript of speech.

17:37:34 Holman: they want crushing military superiority over the United States & all other possible enemies.

17:37:46 Air Force Now Presenter at desk & standing up dramatically: Today we see a nation who s leadership is taking extreme measures in an effort to achieve military & scientific superiority; we have seen that a history of brutal, bloody invasions, internal rebelliions & the cumulative effects of Communist rule have forged a national character that perceives the rest of the world w/ fear & distrust. The Soviet response to that perception has resulted in a reversal of their historic role. No longer are they the victims, they ve now become the aggressors.

17:42:57 Presenter: Direct effort, direct involvement, deliberate oppresion in violation of International Law & basic Human Rights. Its a pattern that is all too clear; and a direct reflection of Soviet Doctrine in the International Arena. Today the Air Force &, indeed, the entire Free World is faced w/ a potential enemy whose continuing military expansion far exceeds the legitimate needs of self-defense...but we re also facing an adversary w/ its own internal problems. The Soviet fighting man is not ten feet tall, nor are we impotent...
