2A~Sept. 10, 1972 *5u nday Gazette-Mail --Ch«rT«ten, Wwt Virginia It's a Love Nest for Wayward Parakeets ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.-wwjoseph Lazzaro runs a lovebird nest for about 100 wild parakeets who enjoy free housing, three squares a day and a dose of bonded bourbon whenever they're down with a cold. Lazzaro, a 79-year-old retired hairdresser from Lyndhurst. Ohio, said he first set up birdhouses in his back yard two years ago but was unable to attract any of the bright green and biue parakeets to the rent-free housing. Then he discovered that "if you want birds to come to your yard, you must have live birds to attract them." So he put a couple of store-bought parakeets in a cage in his back yard. Within a month he had treeloads of their wild chattering cousins, which biologists believe are the offspring of escapees from animal importers. DONORS New York Rockefellers Appea On Nixon s Secret Fund List Bv .lames R. Polk © The Washington Star WASHINGTON--The Rockefeller family in New York is among the hidden donors who helped compile a S10 million secret campaign fund for President Nixon. Others range from former Undersecretary of Defense David Packard to a former Dallas mayor, a drug company head in Indiana and Chicago insurance tycoon W. Clement Stone. "Nixon's aides have repeatedly refused to reveal the sources of that S10 million, which was collected before the April 7 effective date of the new federal campaign spending law. The new law requires disclosure of the names of major donors, and the amounts. The early donors' names were found on a VIP list prepared by the Nixon campaign for the Republican National Convention last month. Nixon sources acknowledged the list contains numerous donors names. "Some were contributors before April 7, some were after, others didn't give anything," said a person at the top level of the campaign. Of the first 16 reached by telephone, 14 confirmed--either personally or through aides- thai they had made donations in the non-disclosure period. One said he did not. The other hung up the telephone s h a r p l y "That's my business, I believe, said Lief J. Sverdrup, a retired general with the engineering firm of Sverdrup Parcel, in St. Louis, who then hung up. The VIP list has 82 names, including four Rockefellers who gave early contributions. Two other Rockefellers who gave publicly after the April 7 disclosure date were not on the special list. GEORGE H1NMAN. a family aide who is former GOP national committecman from New York, confirmed that pre-April donations were made by Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller, his brothers, John D. and Laurence,and Mrs. Abby Rockefeller Mauze. Hinman would not say how much they gave. "The solicitation was made, and those three and the governor sent in their checks, and the others didn't until afterwards," Hinman said. David Rockefeller, head of Chase Manhattan B a n k , is shown on the public Nixon reports as giving 527,000 later. Another brother, former Arkansas Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller, gave $11.000 openly. Nixon's largest donor is he- licved to be Stone, who ha» confirmed he made "a substantial contribution" before the April disclosure date. Stone gave more than 5500,000 in 19KX and has indicated his year's total may be the same. Other verified hidden donors include Henry Salvatori, a Los Angeles oil tool executive; Dwayne 0. Andreas, the Minneapolis soybean king whose $25,000 has been linked to the Watergate break-in affair; and 0. C. Carmichael Jr., a Gulf Western executive in South Bend, Ind. Packard, a multimillionaire who left the Pentagon to return to his Palo Alto. Calif., electronics firm, said "I'm certain that 1 contributed something beforej the 7th," but didn't recall the| figure. Walter 0. Boardsley. chairman of Miles Laboratories in Elkhart. Ind.. verified a m a j o r j rionation and said. "It was before April 7." THK NIX.\ campaign organization Thursday issued a statement branding newspaper reports based on the list as "a hoax." It said the list in this reporter's possession was nothing more than a tally of persons who had asked for tickets to the Republican convention. When advised the list named, the four pre-April Rockefeller: donors, yet omitted the later two, including Winthrop, who wa.s a recognizable figure at M i a m i Bench, a high campaign o f f i c i a l suggested, 'Maybe we rJ.Hn'l know he was coming." The VIPs were hard to locate after the headquarters' statement. Of 27 calls made then 26 Muskie Will Address Brooke County Fete WASHINGTON - AP) - U.S. Sen. Jennings Randolph. D- W.Va , announced Saturday that Sen. Edmund S. Muskie. D-Me., will address the Brooke County Executive CommiKee's Jefferson-Jackson banquet in Wellsburg Oct. 28. Randolph said a group of about VOO persons are expected to be on hand to hear Muskie. DAVID PACKARD Secret Donor persons were out of the country, out of town, out of office, or otherwise unavailable. The only man who answered, a personal Nixon friend, said he had made no donation this year. On the list but unrcachable were such executives as the heads of Boise Cascade Corp., N a t i o n a l Airlines, Leaso Corp., Star-Kist Foods, and L. M. Berry Co. (publishers of the yellow pagjs). Of all those on the VIP file, only seven are named in public Nixon reports as making a contribution from April 7 through the final pre-convention period. Another campaign filing is due this weekend. The secret contributors on the VIP list are only part of the campaign contributions in the pre-Apri! drive. The full ledger may never be known because many of the records at the Nixon headquarters have been destroyed.
