Inc. New book gives details Tibetan guerrillas trained in U.S. By SEYMOUR M. HERSH New York Times SERVICE WASHINGTON Th Cen- tral Intelligence Agency set up a secret base in the Colorado Rockies to train Tibetan guer- rillas in mountain warfare in the late 1950's, when there was an uprising against Chinese rule in Tibet, a new book dis- closes. In the book, "The Politics of David Wise, the author, said that the agency began training Tibetans in 1958 in a deserted World War II army base near Leadville, Colo, the operation continued into the early months of the Kennedy administration, he said. A spokesman for the agency said that'there would be no immediate comment on the re- port. Wise, the former Washington bureua chief of the New York Herald-Tribune and co-author. of "The Invisible a 1964 book about the Central Intelligence Agency, wrote that the Tibetan training program apparently ended abrubptly in December, 1961, six months af- ter the Bay of Pigs fiasco and a few days after its cover was almost blown in an airport near Colorado Springs. "Ironically, it was the snow and the mountains the very factors that led the C.I.A. to select Colroado for the training base that almost caused the operation to Wise wrote. A group of Tibetan train- ees were loaded aboard a bus at the army camp for a 130- mile trip to a nearby airfiled in Colorado Springs, where a large air force jet was waiting to quietly fly them out of the country before dawn. "But coming down the moun- Wise wrote. "The bus skidded off the road in the Politician dashes off tune on messy Watergate case snow. As a result of the delay tries broke out In 1950 and Tl- bet was conquered by China the next year. During the mid- 1950's, however Wise wrote, Ti- betan guerrillas began insur- gent warfare against their con- querors and C. I. A. officials "concluded that the situation offered in ideal for covert U.S. aid. In 1959, the Dalai Lama, who had been permitted to rtay in the country by the Chinese, was forced to flee to India after a Chinese mortar attack on his palace. C. I. A. officials later concluded, Wise wrote, that some of the guerrillas who had been trained in the Colorado Rockies were reponsible for guiding the Dalai Lama to safety. Open warfare broke oat again after the escape; thous- ands of Tibetans were killed and the Dalai Lama's govern- ment was dissolved by the Chi- nese. India's decision to grant sanctuary to the Dalai Lama also increased the pressure between that nation and China, the book said. By BRUCE LEVETT WASHINGTON (CP) Not since Harry Truman waltzed out of Missouri nearly 40 years ago has there been a good, Democratic piano player on the political scene here. Today there tive William L. (BUI) Hun- gate, like Truman a Missouri he's giving the Republican party an ear- ache in the key of G. Hungate has been around for some serving his sixth consecutive term as a he has been writing and playing po- litical satire for years. But only recently has he be- come a celebrity, all because of something he dashed off called Down at the Old Water- gate to the tune of the Eng- lish music hall selection Down at the Old Bull and Bush. It's probably the only light- hearted touch to be found in the messy Watergate political espionage affair. So dial 797-5972 and, if you can get through, which is un- likely, you'll hear a record of the congressman singing in a stringy Missouri twang: "Come, come, come and play spy with me, "Down at the old Water- gate.

Once there, the book went on, over-zealous military secur- ity officials herded the airport's employees around at gunpoint, but not until at least one of them saw the Tibetans board the jet. Complaints to the local sher- iff were made about the man- handling of the civilians, and a few newspaper articles de- scribing the bizarre encounter were published in Colorado Springs and Denver. But, Wise writes, the full implications of the incident did not become public. When a reporter for the New York Tunes subsequently be- gan a routine inquiry, based on a brief news-agency dispatch about the incident, the book said, then secretary of defense Robert S. McNamara telephon- ed the Washington bureau of the Times and asked that the story not be used because of "national security" reasons. The Times acquiesced, Wise wrote, in line with the general newspaper practice in those years of not challenging the government's definition of "na- tional security." In his book, Wise wrote that the issue caused some "nerve- racking moments" at the cen- tral intelligence agency's new million headquarters in Langley, Va., because the in- cident Occurred a week after President Kennedy announced the appointment of John A. McCone as the new director of central intelligence. McCone re- placed Allen W. Dulles, whose resignation was accepted after the Bay of Pigs wrote. The dispute between Tibet and China began in the 13th cen- tury, Wise wrote, with China periodically claiming Tibet as part of its territory. After main- land China fell to Mao Tse-Tung in 1949, the border strife inten- sified and China also began to increase its support for the Panchen Lama, an incarnate who was regarded by the Ti- betans as second only to the Dalai Lama in religious import- ance.

Hendershot said a person who rents a tree is entitled to all the apples it produces, which he estimated at 20 to 30 bushels. He said apples nor- mally seE for around a bushel. Tree renters also may use the grounds for picnics. He said tree renters may enter his 200-acre orchard during daylight hours from May 1 to Nov. 15. He opened the orchard for public in- spection Sunday and said he rented about 100 trees the first day.
