A conservative American fund-raiser linked to fired White House aide Lt. Col. Oliver L. North asked a prominent Mexican politician to donate $210,000 to fund television ads in favor of U.S.-supported rebels in Nicaragua, U.S. sources said Wednesday. In return, the Mexican's right-wing political party would get at least a nod of recognition from President Reagan for its efforts to wrest power from Mexico's ruling party, the sources said.

At least one wealthy contributor who gave money to a private contra aid effort believed Lt. Col. Oliver L. North, then a National Security Council aide, was controlling how the funds were spent, documents show. A note from the contributor to an employee of conservative fund-raiser Carl (Spitz) Channell included a $100,000 check and said: "Please have Ollie contact me to let me know what he's going to do with it."

A diagram found in the safe of fired White House aide Oliver L. North suggests that organizations controlled by conservative fund-raiser Carl R. (Spitz) Channell helped to fund a network of private groups secretly providing military aid to the Nicaraguan contras. The hand-drawn diagram, printed in the Tower Commission report, indicates that money flowed from two of Channell's groups through a public relations firm into a North-connected company.
