Mrs. Rockefeller, blonde daughter of an immigrant coal miner, moved into the apartment while her husband, Winthrop Rockefeller, heir to Standard Oil millions, was in Little Rock, Art. She talked briefly last night with newsmen by telephone, indicating she was not impressed by a million dollar trust fund being set up by Rockefeller for her, and then announced she would hold a news conference some time today. The 36-year-old Mrs. Rockefeller and the oil heir were married in a storybook wedding five years ago. They were estranged shortly after the birth of the son. Winthrop Paul, who has since been in the exclusive custody of the mother. Early this month Rockefeller announced he was establishing a million dollar trust fund for his estranged wife. She had complained previously she was broke and living off the charity of friends. Rockefeller replied he hart supported her and the son with $1,000 a week. He added that a million dollar trust fund had been set up earlier for the son. The oil heir on June 7 moved to Little Rock, and nn attorney said he would establish permanent residence there. The lawyer snirl the New York apartment was up for sale. His move to Arkansas brought reports Rockefeller planned a divorce, but he scoffed at this. Arkansas permits a decree after 80 days residence.

Mrs. Rockefeller was asked whether she thought she could reenter the apartment If she leit it. Her reply was: "J don't know. I have food enough for a day or two." She made It clear she was unimpressed by her husband's establishing the trust fund for her. "That's something that can be changed at a day's notice; there's a dubious clause In it," she said without elaboration. The New York Daily News said today in a copyrighted article that she spurned the trust fund as a device thgough which her husband might obtain a divorce. She was quoted as saying she does not believe in a divorce where children are involved. The News added that she described the fund as "a publicity stunt to give the public the Idea that I had been negotiating for a settlement, which I had not." The News quoted Her as saying: "Furthermore, it is a revocable trust, which means Winthrop can stop it at any moment and contains a Joker clause which states in effect that. ;C I accept it, I place myself under the jurisdiction of the State of Arkansas, where he has gone for a divorce."
