That boosted to seven the espionage charges here in the last three months. Pravda published the accusa- tions, complete with a declaration that charcoal markings on a Moscow boulevard lamp post were one means for the relay of .nformation. The Soviet Communist party newspaper illustrated them with two photographs, apparently tak- en with concealed police cameras purporting to show two embassy staff members in the act of work ng out a system for collecting Soviet science secrets. Headlined its ob viously official article named: Capt. Alexis H. Davison, 31. Atlanta, Ga., a physician attache! ,o the embassy as an assistant air attache to permit him to acl as doctor for the embassy, Robert K. German, 35, Dallas, Tex., a second secretary. Hugh Montgomery, 39, Spring- field, Mass., embassy security officer. It appeared likely all will be put on the diplomatic blacklist and obliged to leave the Soviet Union In Washington, a State Depart ment spokesman said "the allegu- -ions are completely unfounded.' Press officer Joseph Reap was Story on Texan, Pg. 2-A According to Pravda, this is how the spying operation was supposed to work: Secret scientific-technical, polit- ical and military data was avaii- a sort of roving guide for foreign visitors traveling through Soviet scientific institutions. When he got secret material, he was to write it on paper with in- visible ink, put it in a matchbox See CHARGED, Pg. 15-A, Col. 1 Plane Wreckage Sighted in Brazil RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (AP) Brazilian air liner missing with so persons on board was sighted crashed in an Amazon jun- ;le clearing 30 miles short of its destination on a flight from Rio de Jan- eiro, the airline Panair do Brasil reported. It said there was no word on survivors. Fernando Hupsel de Oliveira, chief spokesman here for Panair do Brasil, said the airline's own search planes spotted the downed plane. But he said there were no details to report, other than that he four-engine Constellation, propeller-driven plane, had "crash- ed in a clearing." It had been preparing to land at the Amazon River port of Man- aus. Communications in the Amazon area are poor. This apparently ac- counted for erroneous announce- ments by the Air Ministry and the airline that the plane had been ocated Friday. The Air Ministry said its false all aboard had survived a forced anding on a lake 'rom its Search and Rescue Serv- ce based in Manaus. The plane, captained by a vet- eran Amazon area pilot, disap- peared six minutes before it was due to land. It had left Rio de Janeiro about 3d hours before on lumbering, nine-stop flight ui the Brazilian coast, then inland over the Amazon River to Man- aus. A spokesman for the air force's search and rescue service said its search planes reported no sign o life at the crash scene. He salt the air force therefore decided against the risky operation o parachuting rescuers into the jun gle or dropping supplies. Ground teams were hacking a through the jungle toward the wreckage, he said. The pilot, Capt. Dalvo da Costa, gave no indication of trouble when he messaged, "Ready to ai a.m. The control tower at Manaus said it lost contact with the plane after that. Panair do Brasil said long layovers en route accounted for the long time pe- riod involved in the flight from Rio de Janeiro. The plane had picked up a fresh crew of seven at Belcm, tile next to last stop, at the mouth of the Amazon. It carried 43 passengers, ncluding three babies, on the final leg of the flight over the Amazon. a.m. Monday in Elliott's Chapel of Memories with the Rev. Fran- cis E.
