MARTIN INS ForctRn Director • * * Dr. Otto John, the many-coaled loinicr West Ctermany security chief, is an international mystery man—but behind nim is another iiia '1 of many faces. The other man is Gen. Reinhard Gchlcn, a rival for John's original job, and one wlio might have engineered Jolin's announced rcdefec- tion from East Germany. A Western allied diplomatic informant .said In Bonn that the West (ievman intelligence unit under Gehlcn had advance knowledge lhat John, an anti-Hitler plotter, J was about to return to West Germany after his sensational flight eastward in July, Idhi. Who is Gchlen? The "Bureau Gchlen" originally was set up under United States .vponsorship prior to restoration of sovereignty to West Germany. You could pass the American- requisitioned compound of Pullach, a community 12 miles south of Mu tiich, without believing that behind liiR eight-foot -high barbed wire fence there pulsed a very powerful intelligence notworl<. » • » A few nrmcd guards wore outside.

And it wa.s—a university devoted to espionage, under the mysterious Gehlen, a 53-year- old man who once headed the German spy services in eastern countries in World War II. And a man who served under Admiral Wilhclm Canaris, the chief of German intelligence who wasj THE THREE WISHES VHAT NkSWr ^»?tW PISHED, we DID MOT MgAg <StgaL6Sj JUST LOUf> 6UFFAWS ...

Even before West Germany regained Its sovereignty, Gehlen was reported to have received millions ">f dollars of American monev t" create his super-spy network of thousands of agents behind and outside the iron curtain. • « . Aside from his close staff men, only a few people in the: world are credited with the ability to identify this mysterious man Gehlen, who is known as the "new Canaris." He was captured by the American .T at the end of the war, supposedly flown to Washington once his full background became known, then reassigned to Germany when the east-west political struggle became acute. Descriptions of this mysterious figure—who tries to keep it that way—vary naturally. One report says he looks like a professor and wears horn-shellod glasses. Another will say he looks* like the Fuller brush man, whatever that Is. Being a spy extraordinary, he has many faces, many moustach- los, many passports. And leads perhaps a very lonely life.
