Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta IB THE LETHBHIDQE HERALD Monday, DtCtmovr V, 1V74 'Playboy officials ignored warning about drug use9 CHICAGO (AP) The for- mer head of security for Play- boy Enterprises said he testi- fied three months ago to a fed- eral grand jury about drug use at the mansions of Playboy publisher Hugh Hefner in Chicago and Beverly Hills, Calif. In a telephone interview, Al- len Crawford said Sunday he resigned his post last July because Playboy officials ig- nored his warnings about "the narcotics problem and people of questionable character that might be associated with Playboy." Seven Playboy employees were reported to have been subpoenaed to appear this week before a grand jury in Chicago in connection with a federal investigation into drug use inside Hefner's enclaves.

TV Guide The investigation was dis- closed after the recent federal conviction of Hefner's social secretary, Bobbie Arnstein, for conspiring with a boy- friend and another man to distribute cocaine. Miss Arnstein's arrest last March was reported to have sparked an order by Hefner, who was in Las Vegas at the time, to remove all drugs from both mansions, officials said. Crawford said from his home in Mendham, N J., that he learned of the problem about 2Vz years ago when he became head of security. "I certainly had knowledge that there were people that were using drugs, but not on the basis that this was a place of distribution or anything said Crawford, vice- president in charge of investigations for Wells Fargo Investigative Services, Inc. "Hefner is a very congenial host and has the Playboy phi- losophy that people are adult and make their own decisions. But that doesn't mean Hefner has knowledge of it, or con- dones it, or distributes." Playboy officials in Chicago said Hefner has received no official notice of the investiga- tion and hasn't been sub- poenaed to appear before the grand jury. He was expected to return to Chicago shortly from California. E. Leonard Rubin, lawyer for the corporate enterprise that includes hotels, magazines and clubs, said he was aware of only three subpoenas received by company employees. Two close associates of the multimillionaire were reported to have appeared before the grand jury and seven others, including two Playboy bunnies, have been subpoenaed. Narcotics investigators con- tended that drugs were not sold in the mansions, but were made available to guests and some staff members.

VICTORIA (CP) The provincial government would be "going into a blind alley" if it attempted to get involved in Indian land claims questions now, special Indian affairs consultant Frank Howard said Friday. Mr. Howard said the federal government has never outlin- ed any terms of reference with regards to land claims "and until that occurs, it is difficult for the province to get involved in land claims discussions." Mr. Howard, who said the land claims issue is the most important question facing B.C. Indians, said he was not ruling out working on the issue later, but will await "some other decision from the federal government." Indian fishing rights, another issue which comes un- der federal jurisdiction, can be dealt with on a "co- operative, federal-provincial said Mr. Howard. Vesco to stay in Costa Rica SAN JOSE (AP) Presi- dent Daniel Oduber announc- ed Sunday that fugitive United States financier Robert Vesco will be permitted to stay in Costa Rica despite a public campaign to expel him as an undesirable. Oduber said the government has given Vesco no special privileges. He said that Vesco has had not "the slightest shadow of influence in govern- ment affairs." It was the latest in a string of controversial moves concerning Vesco, wanted in the United States on criminal and civil charges. Pleas for his extradition were rejected in 1972 by a Bahamas court and the Costa Rican Supreme Court has thrown out two similar pleas on technical grounds. Oduber's decision was in re- sponse to a petition by 26 lead- ers of Costa Rica's legal, political, academic and religious communities urging Vesco's deportation for alleg- ed undesirable conduct and il- legal activities. Vesco has been living in Costa Rica since 1972 to es- cape U.S. prosecution on charges of making an illegal contribution to the re- election campaign of former president Richard Nixon to influence an investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission The SEC says Vesco looted the scandal-ridden Investors Overseas Services a mutual-funds firm he controlled, of 1224 million, while investing heavily in Costa Rican enterprises. Stockholders of IOS and in- dividual mutual-funds organ- izations within the firm are suing the financier for recovery of some of the money. Oduber told the petitioners: "It is possible that much of the scandal that has been in- stigated in the press is owed to the fear of the eventual appearance of the newspaper Excelsior, which is said to be the property of Vesco and his group."
