One source confirmed that, al though the committee's staf] spent much of last fall tracing lhe rumors to a Florida bank executive, it eventually conclud- ed that "there was just nothing there." The commillee's conclusion was supported by a month-long investigation by the New York Times into reports that a million- investment fund, made up of illegal corporate contribu- tions, was being held for the President in the Key Biscayne bank headed by Charles "Bebe' Rebozo, Nixon's close friend. Bragging The rumor began to spread sometime last year, apparently after Franklin Deboer, then the head of the bank's trust depart- ment, told a 'female acquaint- ance that he managed private "portfolios" for Nixon, Rebozo and Robert Abplanalp, the aero- sol millionaire who is also a close friend of the President. Deboer, then a vice-president of the Key Biscayne Bank and Trust Co., who later resigned under government pressure, ac- knowledged in November that he earlier told the woman he earned a "substantial salary outside of the bank" for ad- ministering the three invest- ment portfolios. But he insisted, "Everything I said to (her) was an absolute fabrication. Don't ask me why I said it." Verifies Statement The woman, who asked to. remain anonymous, verified in a subsequent interview that De- boer told her last year Ihat "I happen to work for Mr. Rebozo. Mr. Abplanalp and Mr. Nixon." and talked of managing their portfolios. In an Oct. 26 news conference, Nixon sharply denied reports of such a (rust fund carried by the American Broadcasting Com- pany and othpr news organiza- tions, which he accused of knowing that the reports "were untrue" when they were pub- Front-Line Farewell Telephoto An Israeli and an Egyptian soldie r bid farewell to each other at Kilomet- er 101 on the cease-fire line, as Israeli forces begin to pull back from front- line positions.

George Rynn, president of the Akron-based Council of Inde- jendent Truckers, declined to release details of the proposal vhich he said came from offi- ials in Washington, but he said he offer is also aimed at end- ng another shutdown threat- ned for the end of January. He aid a meeting would be held iunday in Barberton. The shutdown, called to pro- est soaring fuel prices, low peed limits and freight rates, as been confined mostly to Ohio and has kept hundreds of rucks drivers off the roads. One truck driver was shot in he leg Friday night in Youngs- own and other shootings were eported in other areas. There 'ere also reports of rock throw- ng at moving trucks.

James Akins, former head of :ie state department office of uels and energy, told a senate ubcommittee last October the :xemptions .were made on jrounds of "national interest" lased on fears the Arabs would a k e over American-owned irms. The testimony was made pub- .ic by Sen. Frank Church CD- chairman, of the sub- committee on multinational cor- porations. Church will launch an investigation Wednesday o n whether U. S. oil company influ- ence over foreign policy has led to current oil price and supply problems. Meanwhile, Vice- president ?ord said he supported "some reasonable rollback" in domes- ic oil prices. He said that after alking with federal energy czar Villiam Simon, he concluded hat domestic oil prices could be ut. Bui he said he could not ffer any specific figures. No Concessions Akins lestified that the gov- rnment extracted no conces- lons from the oil industry in re- urn for the anti-trust protec- on, and was shut out of the in- ustry-Arab negotiations intend- d to avoid nationalization. Despite the governmenl-ap- roved oil solidarity, the com- anies signed an agreement ith the Organization of Petro- eum Exporting Countries OPEC) on Valentine's day, 971, for a five-year production rogram which would have rought the OPEC members an dditional billion.
