WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 8,1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Senafe Must Prove Bribe Intent in Gas Vote Case By JAMES MARLOW Aisoclated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — Is it a crime if you give a senator $2,500 for his re-election campaign? Not if your only purpose is to help him get re-elected. You can, under law, contribute up to $5,000 if that is your purpose and the money is for use in a general election. There's no limit on what an individual can contribute for a primary election campaign. It would be a crime if your real*— purpose—which might be very hard to prove—is to influence the «enator's vote on some bill in which you are interested. That would be bribery. . . And it is a crime for a corporation to contribute directly to a senator's political campaign—in a primary or general electis_rj>-al- though it is all right for officials of the company to contribute as individuals. These questions hover over the disclosure by Sen. Francis Case (R-SD) that a stranger—who later proved to be John M. Neff .small- town Nebraska lawyer—had contributed $2,500 to a campaign fund for Case's re-election this year. Spumed Money Case, saying; he spurned the money, indicated he thought it was intended to influence his vote on the bill to free natural gas ducers, including big oil compa ies, from direct federal control of their prices. Case said Neff. who had been registered last year in Nebraska as an oil company lobbyist, had made references to Case's stand on the gas bill before turning the money over to a mutual acquaintance. Until that happened. Case said, he .had been Inclined to vote for the bill which the Senate later passed. He voted against it. Neff. whose home is in Lexington. Neb., has denied any intention of influencing Case's vote on the gas bill. He said no strings were attached. He has not disclosed where he got the money to give a senator he had never met. saying a confidential relation with his client is involved. Maybe Two Probe* It is not yet clear whether Case •will face a Republican opponent in a primary election or whether he will go into the general election directly against a Democrat next November. Case's statements have set off at least one. and perhaps two. Senate investigations. The Senate yesterday unanimously voted to set up a special four-man committee to look into the matter. This committee, headed by Sen. George (D-Ga), plans to limit its inquiry strictly to the one situation caused by Case's disclosures. Sen. Hennings D-Mo). chairman of a regular Elections subcommittee, wants to investigate too. Hennings says he wants to make a broad investigation of oil and gas corporations, -perhaps questioning other senators. The Senate flo far has shown little enthusiasm for the direction Hennings wants to take. Mother Drops Three Children From Window, Is Critically Burned BALTIMORE W) — Mrs. George A. Bausman, who dropped three of her children from a blazing second-floor apartment into the arms of passers-by yesterday and then jumped from the building with her clothes afire, remained in criical condition today.

They've been there two hours now—just as they have stood there every day for a year and more. They are two of Northern Ireland's 38,000 unemployed. That figure Is 8 per cent of the working population—eight times the unemployment rate in the rest of the United Kingdom, In Londonderry, with 50,000 population, people talk of old men who have never had a job except in the two world wars. Belfast, despite its booming shipyards, has nearly 11,000 out of work. In the villages even farm workers are idle. The main reason is the decline of linen, Northern Ireland's biggest industry next to shipbuilding. Irish linen has lost ground to new textiles and to competition from Czechoslovakia and Japan. This decline in turn has which grew the flax. There's some hope for the jobless, however. Britain's wartime njinister of production — Oliver Lyttelton, now Lord Chandos — heads a development council trying to bring new industry to these six counties. Soon Chandos will go to the United States to tell American businesmen that Ulster is a fine field for development. Careys Have Son SANTA MONICA, Calif.
