VOLUME 92 NUM BKK 18 MM * CUDAK RAPIDS, IOWA, SUNDAY, JANUARY 27, 1974 CITY FINAL 35 CENTS ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NKW YOUK TIMES Nixon Fund Charge Is Discounted By John Crewdson New York Times Service WASHINGTON No evidence to substantiate widely publicized rumors of the existence of a “secret trust fund” belonging to President Nixon bas been found thus far by investigators for the senate Watergate committee, according to knowledgeable sources. One source confirmed that, although the committee’s staff spent much of last fall tracing the rumors to a Florida bank executive, it eventually concluded that ‘‘there was just nothing there.” The committee's conclusion was supported bv a month-long investigation by the New York Times into reports that a $1 million investment fund, made up of illegal corporate contributions, 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 hank’s trust department, told a female acquaintance that he managed private “portfolios” for Nixon, Rebozo and Robert Abplanalp, the aerosol 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, acknowledged in November that he earlier told the woman he earned a “substantial salary outside of the bank” for administering the three investment portfolios But he insisted. “Everything I said to (her) was an absolute fabrication.

New Vitamin C. Colds Data The woman, who asked to remain anonymous, verified in a subsequent interview that Deboer told her last year that “I happen to work for Mr. Rebozo. Mr. Abplanalp arni Mr Nixon.” and talked of managing their portfolios. In an Oct. 28 news conference,! Nixon sharply denied reports of such a trust fund carried by the American Broadcasting Com pany and other news organizations. which he accused of knowing that the reports “were untrue” when they were published and broadcast Nixon's denial was reinforced by a statement of his personal finances, released by the White House last month It showed that he held no stock and that his only major investment, except for Florida and California real estate holdings, was $250,000 in savings certificates on deposit in Rebozo’s bank There were these other Watergate* developments: A President may he impeached and removed from office1 for an offense1 that need not be a violation of criminal law Nine persons were1 arrested on the Linn county according to a study released controlled substances charges in i)on<] «.a(.h Saturday by the Ne w York City a    raid    by the Cedar    Rapids Bar Assn.
