(AP Wire photo) Kidnaped Girl Returned After Seven Months LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A 5- year-old girl who police said -was kidnaped and "b r a i n- washcd to the point where she didn't know who she was" saw her mother Thursday for the first, time in seven months. Karen Joyce Hubcr was found in a foster parents' home in San Diego where she was placed after her alleged abductor was arrested Jan. 15 on an auLo t h e f t charge, Stg. Harry Gilpin said. At the lime, police thought 45-year-old William Knapp was the father of the little blue- eyed, nlojule-liaircd girl. She called him Daddy and said only t h a t her name was Karen. Then, last Friday, San Diego police arrested Knapp, a convicted child moloster. for Ihc kidnaping of another blue-eyed, blonde-haired girl. "When we arrested him with the oUicr kidnaped girl, we realized the connection." said San Diego Police Inspector O.W. Burkett. "We started looking at him and found out the girl in January apparently was not his daughter, but -she did call him Daddy when we talked with her." Mary Hubcr and her daugti lor .spoke to reporters at tbe police station in Los Angeles. The little girl said "Oh, I'm fine" and giggled as newsmen asked her questions, "I'm going to spend all the time 1 can with her," Mrs. Huber said. "I'm not going to leave her for a minute . . Deep clown I knew she was a right because I knew no one could do anything evil to someone so lovable." K a ren was abd uctctl Nov. 13 from Logan Elementary School here, where she was a kinder gartcn student. The other gir 4-year-old Michelle Boohcr, wa abducted from her home Long Beach on June 17, day after Knapp was release from jail. Knapp was arrested five da later al a San Diego board Er house after the .landlady be came suspicious and called p lice when K n a p p claimed Mic elle was his daughter, autho ities said.

Night Stand $68 Furniture--DILLARD'S--Second Floor Monday Through Saturday 10 a HHH Spent Own Money WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sen. ubert H. Humphrey, stung by StriaIc Walergale Committee taff report on his 1972 presi- cntial campaign finances, says e did nothing illegal in using lore than (11)0,000 of his own loney in his campaign and oncealing that fact from ths ublic. "With the Lord Jesus Christ s my guy, that was as honest deal as kissing your mother." he Minnesota Democrat said. Humphrey, in a sometimes motional, late-night telephone all to an Associated Press re- orler Thursday, said the mon- y represented "a lifetime of nvestment" by himself and his ·ife Muriel. Humphrey said he omitted ny mention of the use of per- onal funds when he voluntarily iscloscd has finances during )emocratic presidential pri aries because at that time the aw didn't require full clis- losure and because he wanted o conceal the matter from his amity. "I didn't like to have to con- ribute that money, but we had do it if we were going to ampaign," Humphrey said. RESENTS IMPLICATIONS Humphrey said the Watergate staff report was written b.\ Republican staff member )onald Sanders, and he said he ·esented the tone and implies ions of the report. "It jus' ends up that you look like i Burglar," he said. Meanwhile, the committee staff an Thursday circulated a new report dealing with presi dential campaign finances o 3emocrats George McGrwerr and John V. Lindsay. It said McGovern is cam aligning for Senate re-electior ihis year with the aid of $:t40 417 in left-over 1972 presidentia Funds. It said he shifted Hies funds out of presidential cam paign committees while thes committees were forcing crbdi' ors to write off $35.322 as ba debts. Such transfer of fund has been used by other cand dates and the report did no challenge its legality. But it said the mancuve raises a question of whethe McGovern violated at least th spirit of the federal law ban ning corporate gifts to federa candidates. A McGovern spokesman ohn Holum. said the left-over residential money was shifted o the Senate race on the or- ers of several state and local residential finance chairmen ho controlled the money. Houm said McGovern would try o keep the senators on the Wa- ergate committee from adopt- ng the staff's findings. MAKES ACCUSATIONS The report said *10,000 in ash was raised for former Jew York Mayor Lindsay's residential campaign by a city iighway Department official who solicited the money from wo contractors who later got a !.7-million job to supply the ity with asphalt. It said the money, in $20 bills tufted into an envelope, passed hrough the hands of Lindsay's op campaign aide. Sichard Au- clio, and eannot be accounted T. Aurelio responded by calling he report an example of "slop- ly reporting by the committee taff and said all .the cash had wen properly recorded and reported publicly. The committee t a f f s said review of Lindsay finance records "fails to reveal any recording of the cash con- .ributions. Although the report was edited by Democratic staff members before being circu- ated to the committee, ; iumphrey aide said he beli'eveo the senators on the Watergate committee will reject many of the findings. "Most of that stuff is going to be totally eliminated." the aide said. "We're just being used to balance off all this Nixon-Re bozo stuff." ORDERED TRANSFER The staff report said Humphrey ordered transfer of $89 000 in stock and $23.000 in cash from a blind trust into the presidential campaign during Janu ary and February of 1072, t w o months before a new feciera law made it illegal for a presi dential candidate to use more than $50,000 of his own funds in a campaign. Humphrey said the stock actually was. worth somewhat less, $86.000. putting the t o t a 1 amount of personal funds used 1 at $109.000. The report said the committee staff was unable to get answers about how and when the blind trust was set up or low *»d. when Humphrey came to own the stock. Humphrey said the trust was established in !965 when he was vice president and that this was reported! in the New York Times. Such trusts are used by some federal officials to avoid the appearance of conflicts of interest. Their owners are supposed to be kept ignorant of where the money is invested. The report said Humphrey turned down a committee request to be interviewed and had failed to produce all the documents investigators sought. TWO LETTERS Humphrey gave The AP copies of two letters from committee Chairman Sam J. Ervin Jr., D-N.C., and pointed out that neither of them asked that he be interviewed about the trust or his personal funds, bul only about an allegedly illega donation to his campaign by a large dairy cooperative. Humphrey said he gave com nuttee investigators more than 200 documents from his f i l e s and balked at supplying further documents because he wa« asked to give up all his correspondence for a year. The staff report disclosed .hat all records of Humphrey » early campaign finances were destroyed in the summer of 1972 by his campaign manager. Jack Chestnut whom the re" port said apparently instigated an illegal corporate payment scheme and who invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to testify about it. "I didn't know that Jack Chestnut had done away with the records." Humphrey said; "I don't think that 1 should M made to look like a burglar, because I didn't violate the law."
