The anual Valkyrie Sing will folow the tapping procedure. Prior to this tapping ritual in the Fleece's only public appear ance this year, the names of the newly selected members have been kept a close secret.

Following the tapping cere monies, the names of the Fleece officers for the year 1950-51 will be revealed for the first time.

Owner of some 1,000 villages with a populance of 250,000 the Shah has announced that he will use the money realized from the sale to effect agricultural improve ments. Although the Tudeh Party was outlawed about two years ago, it has successfully retained power and won over many Iranians, the University student pointed out.
