Confict of interest
probed in Abplanalp
bank charter deal
WASHINGTON (/)-New York industrialist Robert Abplanalp is a
principal stockholder in a new bank which sought its federal charter
during the year after his undisclosed purchase of much of the land at
President Nixon's San Clemente, Calif., retreat.
The agent for the bank and one of its founders was William Griffin,
Abplanalp's attorney. Griffin purchased two Key Biscane, Fla., lots
from the President, at a substantial profit to Nixon, late in 1972.
A SPOKESMAN said no one at the White House was involved or
aware of the chartering of the Yonkers, N.Y., bank, opened just over
a yeaor ago.
Available records indicate the application was processed and
approved routinely before the charter was granted to Hudson Valley
National Bank, although one examiner found "no real need" for the
Griffin said he talked to no one at the White House about the
ABPLANALP HAS BEEN ill and was unavailable for comment.
Gerald Warren, deputy White House press secretary, said: "No
one at the White House was aware of, or involved in any way, with
this charter application."
Records show that Abplanalp, a multimillionaire and close per-
sonal friend of Nixon, bought $115,000 worth of stock in the bank. That
made him the largest single shareholder other than the bank's
organizers. None of them purchased more than $125,000 from the
initial stock issue of $2.5 million.
The White House disclosed Friday that Nixon had borrowed $625,000
from Abplanalp to help purchase his San Clemente estate in 1969.
