Utah-Page 27 Guerre/ Plays Part In Blowing Cover On Big Spy Scheme LOS ANGELES (UPI) - A former security guard for billionaire Howard Hughes has admitted that he unwittingly set off a chain of events that blew the cover of one of the most expensive and elaborate spy schemes in history. "It was just an absentminded thing," Davis told authorities. "Whew, am I glad to get that off .mychest." Davis said it all began when he was bound and gagged by burglars who ransacked the files in Hughes' personal communications center "Romaine" last June 5. After the burglars left, Davis said, he noticed some papers on the floor and absent-mindedly stuffed them in his pocket. One of the papers, he said, was a $100,000 certificate. The other was a memo outlining a secret contract whereby Hughes agreed to front for the CIA, by pretending to build an "ocean mining research vessel" called the Glomar Explorer. Actually, the ship was owned and run by the CIA and was built, at an estimated cost of $400 million, to retrieve a Russian submarine that sank in the Pacific years ago. Reportedly, it succeeded in recovering half the sub in an operation the CIA dubbed Project Jennifer. But when the memo outlining the project vanished after the burglary —and a man purporting to have contact with the burglars tried to extort a $1 million ransom for the stolen files -4he CIA became alarmed that the thieves had the memo and could make public the secret of Project Jennifer. It was the concern over the missing memo that gradually filtered through law enforcement sources to reporters and eventually blew the project's cover. But the burglars didn't have the memo. Da vis did. "After the burglars had gone, and I had been able to get to a phone to call for help, I noticed two pieces of paper on the floor," Davis said. "The burglars must have dropped them there." He said he scooped the papers and jammed them in his pocket. "In all the excitement that followed, with the arrival of the police and everything, I just forgot that I had the documents. "It was just an absent minded thing." When he got home and saw what he had, he said, he panicked. He said he kept both the memo and the note in a bedroom drawer for several months, but that when all the publicity began to break on the submarine spy mission about a month ago, he tore up the memo and flushed it down the toilet. Then he took the $100,000 note and put it in a friend's safe, he said. Thursday he told his story to detectives, district attorney's investigators and a reporter. The district attorney's office said Davis "did the right thing" in coming forward, but would not say whether charges would be brought against him. S.L County Commission Okays Power Substation SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) The Salt Lake County Commission has pre-empted its planning board and approved installation of a Utah Power & Light Co. substation at Valley Regional Park. The Planning and Zoning Commission had disapproved the proposal to build the substation at the Taylorsville park. UP&L officials subsequently appeared before the County Commission, promising to darken the skies over Taylorsville with overhead transmission lines if the project were not approved. Utility spokesmen said without the substation, they would have to string the lines to carry increased electric power for their fastest growing customer area. The commission insisted on a number conditions to approval of the project, including that the substation must be screened on all sides. Natural Gas Well Seals Itself Oft RICHMOND, Utah (UPI) - A natural gas well accidentally struck by water drillers about a month ago has turned itself off. District Engineer Mike Turnipseed said the well suddenly sucked the casing and well head into the ground and pushed up a lot of mud, which effectively sealed it off. The engineer said today the small pocket of natural gas had declined in pressure prior to its sealing by its own action about two weeks ago. is David Poling, P.P. Centenary thoughts: Did Schweitzer fail? gratifying to note the world-wide celebrations that will mark the Albert Schweitzer Centenary — 1875-1975. There have not been many people who excelled in so many fields as did this German preacher's son from Alsace-Lorraine. Yet this scholar who made major contributions in music, philosophy and theology is perhaps best known for his jungle hospital in Africa and his medical attention to lepers. Schweitzer turned his back on Western civilization just before Word War I and gave himself to the deprived peoples of Central West Africa. He died at the age of 90, facing the critics that are attracted to the famous and pondering the ethical future of the world. He was hopeful but not optimistic. Schweitzer's major phrase and philosophy for the world was Reverence For Life. He was the first in this century to sense the close working relationship of all Creation. Wind, sea and sky were interconnected and so were man, animal and space. He urged the end of war, warfare and the weapons of death. For his opposition to atomic testing he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952. He believed in the living rights of animals, insects, plants, trees — outdoors was sacred and the universe was a graceful sanctuary of life, therefore, Reverence for Life. Did Schweitzer fail? Has Reverence for Life taken hold anywhere worth mentioning? Wars increase, starvation follows hunger and the animal kingdom knows slaughter instead of kindness. Yet he wrote and worked in this sort of grim setting and produced some ideas and actions that continue to operate around the world. The Schweitzer Centenary Year began with a concert in Carnegie Hall in January and found a variety of expressions in planned events. The Schweitzer legacy can be seen in a variety of organizations in the humanitarian and environmental areas. The Humane Society of the United States and its KINDNESS club for children and youth has done much to extend the realm of Reverence For Life. Colleges and graduate schools address themselves to the questions raised by Schweitzer in philosophy and religion. Erica Anderson's Albert Schweitzer Friendship House in Great Harrington, Mass., is a fine, international media center that attracts thousands of visitors each year. Never financially secure, the Schweitzer hospital in Africa faces a gloomy future. The famous doctor's daughter, Rhena, no longer administers the overseas work and presently lives in Atlanta, Ga. Soaring medical costs are universal and the clinic along the Ogowe River struggles with inflation, newer nearby facilities and personnel turnover. Schweitzer's interpretations of Bach are standard texts in the music field, treasured today as they were 50 years ago. (He played the piano at 5 and was church organist at age 9.) But electronic organs flourish and for Schweitzer, that would be failure, for he battled constantly for the supremacy and dominance of the pipe organ. Whatever else endures of this caring and concerned man, sure- 475 NORTH STATE STREET, OREflfl good father: I'm a good very well, but you must do something more.
