8 Galesbura Register-Moil, Galesburg, III, Thursday, Sept, 5 P 1963 By Dick Turner West Germany I CARN1VAL BND Watches Over Nation liy tf ANNS NEUERBOURG MUNICH, Germany, (AP) — A whitewashed wall rings a wooded estate in a fashionable Munich suburb. This is about all the outsider sees of the tightly guarded and mystery-laced headquarters of the "Bundesnachrichtendienst" — the German Federal Intelligence Service, or BND for short. A more popular label is "Gehlen ov " ' 'ii.' - named after lis leader who set up the espionage network under American auspices when the cold war broke up the World War II alliance. Former Lt. Gen. Reinhard Gehlen, in the business for more than 20 years, has an outfit of perhaps 4,000 men. Recently they have weathered an unprecedented onslaught of public criticism.

Lane Dixon and his parents, "When you get to college, Son, the most important things in picking a roommate are congeniality, cooperative attitude and one whose father is as big a sucker as I am!" of violent attacks after a senior official, Heinz Felfe, was convicted as a Soviet agent in Germany's biggest spy trial since the war. Court testimony at Karlsruhe disclosed Felfe and a codefendant, Hans Clemens, during the Nazi era were both intelligence officials of tlic SS-controlled Reich security head office—which also employed Adolf Eichmann. Clemens admitted that he took part hi the shooting of 330 Italian hostages. Leaders of both opposition and government parties urged that the outfit be given a thorough going over. Newspapers spoke of a "Nazi nest in Munich." Some politicians clamored for merging BND with the two other German intelligence organizations. The government took things in stride. The federal chancellory, to which Gehlen is immediately attached, let it be known that "far less than one per cent" of the Gehlen staff formerly were in SS ranks. What's more, officials said, the fact that Felfe and Clemens were tracked down by the Gehlen people themselves — in 1961 — showd the agency's efficiency. Gehlen first got into the espionage field in 1942 when he took over as head of the German army's "Foreign Armies East" department, assigned to collect information on buildups in the rear of the Red army front. When the war ended, Gehlen possessed a wealth of data copied in triplicate and carefully stowed away hi secret places. It is said that Gehlen got in touch with Gen. Edwin L. Sibert, then assistant director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. U.S. Gen. George S. Patton, sensing early East-West tension, reportedly sent Gehlen to the United States where the German agreed to set up a new spy organization, provided he got a free hand in picking his staff. The Gehlen organization was provisionally headquartered in the wooded Spessart Mountains south of Frankfurt in 1947 and eventually moved to Pullach, a suburb of Munich. The Americans spent many millions on it before it was put under German control as a Bonn government agency in 1955. Viola Club Takes Trip To Wisconsin VIOLA-The Viola Sew-So 4-H Club took its annual trip Aug. 31. The group went by chartered bus to New Clarus, Wisconsin. There were 21 members and 13 guests on the trip. The group went to the Chalet of the Golden Fleece. There they saw over 3,000 items—some going back to before the time of Christ. One old cut glass vase on display is worth over $3,000. The next stop was the Swiss Museum Village. The group had lunch at the New Clarus Hotel where a Swiss accordion band played.
