TUESDAY, JUNE 26, 1951 THE REGISTER-NEWS MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS EMERGENCY PENTAGON FOR USE IN A-BOMB ATTACK IS BEING CARVED OUT OF HILLSIDE IN MARYLAND HILLfllDE PENTAGON: .Thl» photo from Pathfinder it a long-range view of Camp Ritchie Project. By DOUGLAS LARSiEX BTEA Staff Corespondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Night and day for more than six months, Army engineers have be «n tunneling into Raven Rock Mountain, 90 miles from Washington, to build a stand-by Pentagon for use in case of A-bomb attack. Recent orders issued to all Pen-- lagon employes, giving them specific, secret points to report to in case of attack, indicate that the project might soon be ready ,^ for partial use. ~ What is called the Camp Ritchie Project has been kept under heavy security wraps. The only official announcement of its existence was a terse Department of Defense release a year ago which said, "plans are going forward for the establishment of a supplemental communications installation at and nearby Camp Ritchie, Md." The site is ner the Pennsylvania-Maryland Ixirder, Meantime, rumors of its size, location and use have been rife among Washington's defense em­ ployes. Excitement and curiosity among residents living in the area of the project have Ijeen intense. « • • • Day an** night huge trucks STATEMENT OF^ PUBLIC FUNDS STATE OF ILLINOIS, COUNtY OF .lEFFERSON The following is a statement of Henry L.

DOWNEY, Subscribed and sworn to before me this 21st day of June, A. D., 1951. H. C. LOVIN. (SEAL) H. C. LOVIN, My commission expires February 28, 1954. TOWN FUNDS Received and From What Sources Received April 1, 1950~Balancc on hand $ 824.38 April 1, 1950—Received from County Treasurer 3,181.53 $4,005.91 rumble into the heavily guarded gates, loaded with all kinds of building materials and weird machinery. From a nearby highway you can see corrugated iron .sheds covering what are apparently huge holes In the side of the mountain. Surrounding towns such as Blue Ridge Summit, Penn., are booming with business from the thousands of construction workers. P. J. Healy Co., the firm which dug New York 's Lincoln Tunnel under the Hudson, is the contractor. With the Pentagon's top secret label on (he project, it's only natural that it would inspire wild speculation. But some solid facts have emerged from the rumors surrounding the Camp Ritchie Project. There's no doubt that its main function will be to serve as a stand-by communications center for defense officials to direct America's far-flung defense commitments in case the Pentagon is bombed. * • • « It is iioubtful whether the project is enormous enough to house Tulsa Has New Murder Mystery 6y Associated PrcKs TUf-SA, Okla., June 26. — The sheared, lower part of a Venetian blind provided police with a tangible clui today a.s they mulled the ..andkerchicf-slrangulation murder of a ayoung, pregnant housewife. "Finding of this part of the Venetian blind from the victim's apartment changes the entire picture of the case," Chief Fred Graves said last night. Ho made . his statement after it was discovered in a clump of weeds near Mrs. Dorothy Waldrop's apartment—and not too all of the 31,000 Pentagon workers. But it will rAost certainly be used for key defense officials and their staffs. It is estimated iliat Raven Rock Mountain .vill have carved out of its insides about 3,000,000 square feet of office space. There is no estimate available as to the cost of the undertaking. The orders given recently to Pentagon employes specify 20 secret points on the outskirts of Washington at which they should gather in case of enemy bombing attack on the Capitol, Just how many will be told to report to Cimp Ritchie from these points is also a matter of secrecy. Part of the Ritchie project includes living quarters for persons who might have to be working in (he big hole. FOR SALE OLD NEWSPAPERS 5c RUN DIE Auctioneer T. B. RUSSELL. Mt. Varnen. IM. SALE BARN.
