Monday Evening, June 3, 1957. Republican Party Concerned About Low Bank Account By LYLE C. WILSON United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON (UP) — This is the season for the Republicans to have money trouble, and bad trouble it is. In its strongest form the story is that the Republican National Committee is broke, or near it, and cannot, raise more money. Others claim the situation is bad enough, but not that bad. Something seems to be persuading con'.ributors not to contribute. It is freely conceded that the committee is looking for a finance chairman and may get its man this week. . Some party men blame President Eisenhower for the money drought. They believe the flow of Republican political funds was slowed or stopped because likely contributors object to Eisenhower's big 1958 spending program and to what sometimes is called his from the National Committee. The custom has been for the two congressional committees and the National Committee to raise funds jointly, a kind of political united fund. For the two congressional campaign committees to go off on their own fund-raising campaigns would have the appearance of a monumental vote of no confidence in Eisenhower. Moreover, • if committees proved capable of getting contributions while the National Committee floundered, the no confidence aspect of the situation would be even more emphatic. It would mean that the Republican Party in Congress could outdraw the Republican Party in the White House — outdraw, at least, among campaign contributors who count. Two Key Men Sen. Andrew F. Schoeppcl (Kan) Is chairman of the Senate Republican Campaign Committee. Rep. Richard M. Simpson (Pa.) chairs the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee with special responsibilities for electing members of the Hou.se. These two are regular Republicans, strong parly men and good politicians. They will not Ughtly go off on their own to raise money. All the more significant, therefore, would be such action on their part if Schoeppel and Simpson decided finally it had to be done. Back there in 1956 the campaign funds rolled in. The National Committee divided the loot and overy- body was comparatively happy. Just maybe, however, loo much of that money was spent on electing Eisenhower and not enough on helping Republican candidates for the Senate and the House, which remained Democratic after the returns were in. CHURCH PRESIDENT Indianapolis Divorcee and Ex-suitor Die Former Convict Kills Mother of Three and Wounds Other Man Before Ending Life INDIANAPOLIS (UP)—A divorced mother of three children was shot to death early Sunday by a former suitor, an ex-convict, in her four-room home.
