PAGE TWfcNTY-SIX ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 5,1963 FORTY ODD By Peg Bracken and Rod Lull "Okay, Gleason, your turn." West German Intelligence Agency Drawing Criticism By HANNS NEUERBOURG MUNICH, Germany, (AP) — A whitewashed wall rings a wooded estate in a fashionable Munich suburb. This is alxnit all the outsider sees o( the tightly guarded and mystery-iaced headquarters of the "Bundesnachrichtendierist" — (the German Federal Intelligence Service), or END for short. A more popular label is "Gehlen organization", named after its leader who set up the espionage network under American auspices when the cold war broke up the World Wai- 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. His agency became the target 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 Kaarlsruhe disclosed Felfe and a codefendant Hans Clemens, during the Nazi era were both intelligence officials of the SS-controlIed Reich security head office—which also employed Adolf Eichmann. Clemens admitted that he took part in 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 END 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 — Star-Kist Tuna PILKINGTON BROKERAGE CO. St. Louis, Me. showed 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 awp.y in secret places. It is said that Gehlen got in touch with Gen. Edwin L. Sibert, then assistant director of the U.S. Central Intelli' gence Agency. U.S. Gen. George S. Patton, sen sing 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 wa put under German control as a Bonn government agency in 1955. Worden WORDEN — Pvt. David Tweedy of Ft.
