Major Critic in Profumo Sex Scandal Now Finds Himself in Same Situation Golesburg Register-MoiLGglesburg, 1II. Tuesday. May 29, 1971 ,4 13 . ... .J... * f • --,,,-..#-f. . . > J By WILLIAM P. WRIGHT LONDON (UPI) ~ When John Proftfflto resigned as war minister lit a «e*and*sectfrity scandal 10 yeara ago, none appeared more outraged than follow blueblood Antony Claud Frederick Lambton. A staunch defender of Queen and country, whose only vices TAKE TIMS to READ Twict Wttkly in the Galesburg R«gi«t«r*Mail seemed to be kippered herring for breakfast, an occasional glass of wide and wearing sunglasses at night, Lambton railed in public print at Profumo for risking the nation's security and disgracing the Conservative Party. Today Lambton 's promising political career lay in tatters, the Conservative party was aghast and the government stood shaken in a call-girl scandal strikingly similar to the Profumo affair. Birds of Feather If not birds of a feather, Lambton and Profumo were of the same flock whose ancient family ties have given the British Establishment a powerful voice in the nation's affairs for generations. Both were born into titled families, Lambton into the (earldom of Durham and Profu­ mo into the baronetcy of the- then Kingdom of Italy. Both went to Harrow, the prestigious prep school, which with Eton has produced prime ministers and other eminent Britons over |the centuries. When Profumo finally confessed to his affair with call- girl Christine Keeler in 1963, Lambton, then a Conservative back-bencher in the Mouse of Commons, wrote a newspaf >er article assailing him for exposing himself to blackmail by the nation's enemies. Seven years later, Lambton was installed as parliamentary under-secretary for the Royal Air Force in a Defense Ministry office down a marble corridor from the one Profumo used. Skillful Lambton quickly showed himself a skillful administrator of the RAF at a time when British air power was undergoing modernization for the 1970s. Prime Minister Edward Heath counted him among his most able junior ministers. A family friend said for all appearances Lambton's. life with his comely wife, the former Belinda Blew-Jones, daughter of a retired army major and a year his junior, "couldn't be happier." Lambton was as "fiercely devoted" to his son and five daughters, now grown, "as they were to him," the friend said. Friends said Lambton had told them his friendship with an attractive Irish-born call-girl named Norma Levy, 33, who also worked as a model, began about four months ago when he started visiting her apartment in Ma id a Vale, a middle-class London suburb near his om home. The girl's neighbors said they recall seeing a "pin-striped, good-looking gentleman" fitting the description of the 50-year- old Lambton and wearing the dark glasses he favors arriving "occasionally" at the apartment building. On a wall in the bedroom of the lavishly furnished flat is a huge mirror, according, to sources close to the building's caretaker. Police sources said a two-way mirror was used to obtain photographs of Lambton naked in bed with two girls. George Spejvin? The original George Spelvin was a myth — a name listed in theater programs to indicate an actor who was playing two or more parts. For the more important role, he would be listed by his actual name; for the lesser role, he would be George Spelvin. DREAMING ABOUT A NEW CAR!
