He was a man of litlle vealth and his name meant nothing. · "' Seven generations later, the Rockefeller name is synonymous with power and wealth, with public service and with philanthropy. The second son of that seventh generation, Nelson A. Rockefeller, was named on Tuesday by President Ford as his nominee for vice president. In a country not given to titles' and ruling class, the Rockefellers have perpetuated a dynasty of great influence on economic affairs and now political life. Family members are spread through corporate, industrial banking, real estate and international business ventures. The Rockefeller Foundation anc other organizations annuallj dispense millions from famil, endowments and gifts. In the past decade and a half, Rock etellers have found a new role in the political arena. It is a dynasty based on wealth, and the origin o f - t h a wealth can be dated with pre cision. On Jan. 10, 1870, the Standard! il Co. was incorporated in ihio with John Davison Rockfeller as president. He was ailed a robber baron by many. He gave away $530 million be- ore he died. He was Nelson Rockefeller's 'grandfather. The early generations of Rockefellers had survived in America as tradesmen and armers, neither- spectacular successes, nor failures. The sunily now dates its history rom'the birth of John D. Rockefeller in 1839. His father was itinerant salesman who sometimes used the name "Dr. Rock" to peddle patent medicines. John .D. Rockefeller had a ,nack for acquiring money and a willingness to give it away. He yas imaginative and ruthless in his business dealings, pious and utterly correct in his private life. His attributes have become trademarks of a family that considers wealth a public trust and waste a sin. Under his direction, Standard Oil acquired control of the oil industry through mergers, favorable railroad fates, rebates and other practices, many now illegal. By 1885, the. company controlled 95 per cent of the nation's oil refining capacity. At the turn of the century, John D Rockefeller's annual income .vas estimated at $50 million. He was called the richest man in the world. The break-up of Standard Oil in 1911 under new federal antitrust laws had little effect on the family fortune. John D. Rockefeller had retired from active business life, . His most trusted adviser, a Baptist minister named Fred erick T. Gates, had warned lim, "Unless you distribute i'our vast fortune quicker than ,t 'grows, it will crush not only you and your children, but your children's children." With the aid of his son, John 3. Rockefeller Jr., the senior Rockefeller spent the rest of hi: life, giving away money and polishing his public image. He died in 1937. three months shor( of his 97th birthday. John D. Rockefeller Jr. spen mated $2,5 billion to education, icdical research and other so- ial and charitable causes. Despite such philanthropy, ic children of John Jr. inlicr- :ed considerable fortunes. A aughter and five sons. Nelson kldrich Rockefeller included, cemed to wear their 'millions more comfortably. While their ather was content with the qui- ·l bankrolling of philanthropy, his life in the shadow family fortune. He was of th a shy retiring man with little taste for the world of business anc apologetic about the family'; wealth and spent most of hi; life giving part of it away. In 1913, he organized tin Rockefeller Foundation. By th time he died in 1360, the foun dation and other family-fundei agencies had given an esti they have acquired a taste for active control. and public leadership. John D. Rockefeller 3rd, 68, eldest of the brothers, has been a leader in efforts to assess and deal with world population problems as founder and chairman of the Population Council. Nelson Rockefeller, G6, spent much of his lite in government service and politics. ; Fayetteville Business College Proudly Announces the Affiliation of Ora Lee Boss 'Broker, Gallery of Homes Proven, Successful, Sales Method REAL ESTATE CLASSES Begins Wednesday' August 22nd Fayetteville Business College 221 South Locust, Fayetteville -- Phone ·! 12-2241 Licensed by Arkansas Department of Education Maintenance higher than costs were up expected, with $163,800 set aside for this category and $182,366 spent.

Court Denies Munson Petition LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The U.S. 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has denied a petition filed by Pros. Atty. Lee Munson of Little Rock, who was seeking to prohibit the adjudication of : suit filed against him by Dr. Grant Cooper in U.S. District Court here. Munson had maintained that the court in Arkansas had no the case. Cooper, a Communist, was recently ousted as a history professor at the University of Arkansas--Little Rock. He sued Munson in May contending that he was in danger of being prosecuted · by Munson under Arkansas' anti-Communist statutes. The suit challenged the constitutionality of the statutes and asked for a declaratory judgment on their constitutionality. Federal courts cannot issue such declaratory judgments un- .ess the plaintiff asking for such a judgment is in danger of being prosecuted under the challenged law. Judge G. Thomas Eisele of U.S. District Court here, ruled Aug. 2 that Cooper was in dan- ;er of prosectuion and he agreed to enter a declaratory j u d g m e n t on the constitutionality of the statutes. Munson then filed a petition with the appeals court, asking that Eisele be enjoined from hearing the suit. Munson argued that he would not prosecute Cooper--at least not until the Arkansas Supreme Court had ruled in an appeal of a suit by which Cooper's teaching salary had been cut off. However, evidence presented at the hearing in Eisele's court showed that Cooper might be prosecuted.before the Arkansas Supreme Court made a ruling if Cooper committed certain acts that Munson believed fell into the confines of what Munson expected the state court decision woud be.
