RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTONPerhaps the richest man in Europe is almosl certain to get richer He is not a British press lord nor a Greek shipping magnate nor an Italian automobile manufactur er As recently as U years ago he was in prison as a war crim inal His full name is Alfried Krupp Von Bohlen Und Halbach The world knows him to the extent that it knows him at all as Al fried Krupp This heir of Germanys can non a former playboy but now both energetic in busi ness and reserved socially has won three extensions of an order to sell Ms huge Rheinhausen Steel Works and other steel and coal holdings He has applied for still more time His reason is that he cannot find a poten tial German buyer with enough inoney Western officials are inclined to agree

sevenman inter national commission The chair man is a Swiss three members are from West Germany and one member each serves from the United States Great Britain and France After World War II an Ameri can war crimes court convicted Krupp standing trial for his ailing father of using slave la bor and of exploiting occupied territory He was sentenced to 12 years in prison AH the Krupp properties were confiscated The Krupp industrial empire was to be broken up so that it could not ever again serve as a source of German war strength But in January 1951 Krupp was released from prison and his property was restored U S High Commissioner John J Mc Cioy said that his punishment had been generally repugnant to American concepts of jus tice In return Krupp pledged never io manufacture munitions again
