By STEPHEN a MILLER AP Business News Editor NEW YORK (AP) - In 48 years, Franklin National Bank has grown from a little-known Long Island operation to one of the nation's biggest and most troubled commercial banks. By week's end, it found itself with a former Treasury secretary at its head, an apparently growing rate of heavy withdrawals — and a loss of more than $50 million on the books for this year. Still, the bank and federal officials indicated the bank remained solvent — aided by funds loaned by the Federal Reserve. And while just what went wrong remained unclear, there were no signs that whatever happened was part of a vastly wider picture in the banking industry. Franklin announced May 12 that unauthorized foreign currency transactions had been uncovered and it was recalculating the first-quarter financial report which already showed it made only $79,000 in the period, down from $3.1 million the year before. Several observers have contended that the foreign exchange problems came atop other woes resulting at least in part from loan policies' employed as Franklin worked for a bigger share of the New York banking business. This week, Franklin announced the new figures: a loss of $40.4 million for the first quarter, largely from foreign exchange operations, and $19.1 million lost since then. The New York Clearing House, meanwhile, said foreign and domestic depositors had pulled a total of $900 million out of the bank since its May 12 announcement — including $119 million in the last week alone. Federal officials indicated however, that the effect of the additional withdrawals had been softened by the Federal Reserve assistance. "Nothing in our daily contacts with the (federal) comptroller's office has suggested any change in his view of the bank's solvency, nor in our view is there any question as to the bank's solvency," said Har- FOR SALE: Registered Springer Spaniel pjps.

Wright Shop, River Inn, Fergus LOS ANGELES (AP) — Driving down U.S. 101 south of Santa Barbara, Linda Lipsett, her husband Don and a female friend were trying to figure out why a Highway Patrol car had tailed them for 20 miles. Suddenly another patrol car appeared behind them and then a sheriff's car shot off a ramp, followed by another patrol car. Roubideaux steps down RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Ramon Roubideaux confirmed today that economic and family matters have forced him to step down as chief counsel of the American Indian Movement Roubideaux, 49, has been representing persons charged in connection with the Custer disturbance and Wounded Knee takeover for the past year. "My legal practice in Rapid City has been neglected quite a bit, and I'm trying to get back into it," Roubideaux said "Also, I've been away from home too much." Roubideaux, a well-respected trial lawyer, is married and the father of two children, 11 and 13. Roubideaux was asked to represent AIM defendants following the Feb. 6, 1973, protest at Custer. Since then' under the unofficial title of "chief counsel," he's helped defend and coordinate the defense of Custer and Wounded Knee defendants. "I've been paid nothing but part of my expenses," he said. "I've kept up with my private "~~K 6"uig 11 i 114U11 I. "If I get my pratice going I might be able to help ATM in some way, but I don't plan to take an active role anymore." Roubideaux, a full-blooded Indian, recently lost a primary election race for circuit court judge in the Black Hills area. He also was an unsuccessful Republican primary election candidate for attorney general in 1970. The children in Burma learn to swim before they walk, with the help of water wings made from gourds.

They're really after somebody." She was right. Officers thought the lipsetts and their friend were Patricia Hearst and her two Symbionese Liberation Army captors-turned- comrades. Moments later, terrified and bewildered, the three were lying face down on the pavement, seven officers holding pistols and rifles on them. Mrs. Lipsett said they pleaded with the officers to explain what was happening but were told, "Be quiet." The explanation came minutes later. "We thought you might have been Patty Hearst and Emily and William Harris," an officer said. Their identities established, the Lipsetts and their friend, Katie Rowland, stood up and brushed off their clothes "We were absolutely panicked," Mrs. Lipsett said. "We thought they were going to shoot us." Other Californians have had similar experiences during the police search for the Harrises and Miss Hearst, the newspaper heiress who was kidnap- ed Feb. 4 and is now sought as an SLA terrorist. The FBI says it has no clues to the trio's present whereabouts. The last confirmed sighting was at an Inglewood, Calif., sporting goods store on May 16, the day before six other SLA members died in a fiery Shootout with authorities in Los Angeles. Police say they don't know how many people they have stopped since. Some persons are merely questioned briefly and released. Others are held at the gunpoint until police establish their identities. Steve Thorp, 25, who owns a van and lives in Los Angeles' Topanga Canyon, said he was stopped twice, and the second time police "tore apart" the van looking for evidence. A Pasadena Star-News reporter was stopped by officers from three squad cars and four motorcycles after he and his wife, while in a coffee shop, showed interest in a newspaper headline about the three fugitives. Whether a police officer' draws a weapon on a Patricia Hearst look-a-like "depends how strongly he feels she looks like Patty," said a Los Angeles police spokesman, Lt. Dan Cooke. "Once it's been established they're not who we're looking for, we try to explain the necessity for the guns. Some understand. Others are outraged." Cooke said almost everyone stopped has acknowledged the need for it. "We haven't received a single complaint,"he said. Mark Rosenbaum, an attorney for the American Civil Liberty Union, disputed this, saying: "When the police say they 'don't receive complaints, that's nonsense. They complain, but not to police." Watergate at glance WASHINGTON (AP) - Here are the latest Watergate developments: COLSON - Former White House aide Charles W. CoLson said President Nixon urged him lo disseminate damaging information about Daniel Ellsberg. Colson made the statement as he was sentenced to one to three years in prison on his plea of guilty to a charge of obstructing justice. Colson had admitted to scheming "to defame and destroy" Ellsberg's public image. JUDICIARY COMMITTEE — Several Judiciary Committee members said Colson should be called to testify about Nixon's role in the attempted smear of Ellsberg. Chairman Peter W. Rodino Jr. would not comment directly on whether Ellsberg would be called to testify in. the committee's impeachment probe. But he said the committee "absolutely" would look into the matter. FORD- Vice President Gerald R. Ford said he does not believe that Nixon ordered Colson to carry out the break-in into the office of Ellsberg's psychiatrist. Ford said there is a difference between the President asking an aide to smear someone, as claimed by Colson, and ordering a break-in. KROGH - Egil Krogh Jr., who supervised the White House agents who carried out the Ellsberg burglary, returned home from prissn. old V. Gleason, as he resigned as the bank's president and chairman. Gleason had been chairman since 1970 and had been serving as president since May 13, when directors voted out Paul Luf tig Gleason said his successor would be Joseph Walker Barr who served as Treasury secretary in 1968-69. Gleason said the'losses announced this past week were CROSSWORD PUZZLE ACROSS "primarily caused by actions which were taken without my knowledge and without my authorization." "In most cases, they were deliberately kept from my knowledge," Gleason said. "However, the fact remains that I was the chief executive officer when they took place. There is an old saying that 'the buck stops at the top,' and I believe that to be true." c SEA ANEMONE 1. Accelerate an engine 4. Seize 8. Bleat 11. Dusk 12. r>p*er wolf 13. Abolish 14.

Pull QUESTION: What is a sea anemone? * * * ANSWER: Sea anemone is a popular name for a group of primitive marine animals. There are many species and some of the tropical variety are beautifully colored Sea anemones were so called because they look like the anemone flower, as they grow attached to rocks and piles. They are a sac-like animal with a cylindrical body and a mouth with fringes or tentacles around it They attach themselves to rocks or other places by their feet I hey are carnivorous and grasp their food through the tentacles. A substance in the tentacles paralyzes their prey. They are limited in the powers of locomotion and depend on food coming within their tentacles. The sea anemone makes an attractive flower-like appearance with its beautifully colored tentacles but its touch means death to fish and other sea animals 'it varies in size from.about one quarter of an inch to more than three teet. 6-" > 4 (Linda Cogswell of Olalhe.
