3A - Mav 19. 1974 ' Sunday Gazette-Mail ^ Ch*-!«iftn. Wwt Virginia PLENTY Fulbright's Campaign Reaps Funds Support APK- York Time* Service WASHINGTON - Sen. J. W. Fulbright. the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, whose political career is being threatened in Arkansas's Democratic pri- 'mary. may lack support in the opinion polls but not in his ·campaign purse. F u l b r i g h t . according to campaign spending reports Tiled with the secretary of the Senate this week: has re- Reived almost three times as much money as his opponent. :Gov. Dale Bumpers -- $428.- ·711 to $151.575. ! Fulbright has spent $337.318 . in the campaign and Bumpers :$103.527. The primary election ·will be May 28. * * * THE REPORT does'not support rumors about the ;source of each candidate's financing. ; One rumor has it that the banking industry, which had expressed concern over Fulbright's possible defeat because that could open the way for Sen. William Proxmire. D- Wis.. to head the banking and currency committee, contributed heavily to Fulbright's campaign. Under the seniority system of Congress, if Fulbright lost. Sen. John J. Sparkman, D- Tuition Cut For Children Of Ministers B D C K H ' A N N O N - The board of trustees of West Virginia Wesleyan College-has authorized a 25 per cent tuition discount for a student whose p a r e n t is a U n i t e d Methodist Church minister at any annual conference. A discount already is granted to the children of ministers who are members of the West Virginia or Western Pennsylvania annual conferences. The board also waived tuition and fees for college level study by elderly persons who may attend the school on an audit basis. Four foreign students per year also will be granted tuition waivers.; President John D. Rockefeller IV said the move was made because.the board recognizes that attendance of students from foreign countries enriches the college community life. " Ala., could give up the chairmanship of the banking and currency committee to head the foreign relations committee. This would leave Proxmire in line for leadership of the banking committee. It is clear from the preliminary election spending report that more than $40,000 of Fulbright's campaign money came from individuals or organizations with banking and investment interests, because they identified themselves as such in the reports. However, many people did not state their occupations. Most of the $40,000 was donated by Arkansas bankers, but Fulbright'also received, broad financial support from out-of-state oilmen, businessmen, bankers and people who share Fulbright's views on foreign policy. Foreign policy associates such as W. Averell Harriman, former Treasury Secretary C. Douglas Dillon, Clark Clifford, former secretary of defense, and former.Ambassa- dor J. Kenneth Galbraith are among Fulbright's contributors as well as Stewart R. Mott, the millionaire contributor to liberal cuases, and Erich Fromm, the author. IN CONTRAST, the vast majority of Bumpers' support comes from local Arkansans, despite the continuing rumors that the eastern Jewish community has offered to contribute money to Bumpers. Fulbright has been unpopular with some Jewish groups because of what they consider his lack of support for Israel in the Middle East controversy.

The sources said Bumpers' campaign would be harmed if he received widespread out-of-state Jewish support. Only five of Bumpers's contributors listed in this week's report were not from the state. IRS Procedures Probe Topic SEN. J. W. FULBRIGHT Broad Financial Aid (C) New York Times Service WASHINGTON - For the first time in 20 years, the treatment of taxpayers by the Internal Revenue Service is to be the subject of a major investigation and review by an independent federal agency. The year-long study, which is expected to cost at least $100,000, will examine the policies and practices of the IRS in such areas as the summary seizure of the assets of delinquent taxpayers, the extent to which confidential taxpayer information is given to other agencies and the manner in which taxpayers are selected for audit. * * * THE INITIATION of the study was announced by the Administration Conference of the United States, a little known agency which has the objective of identifying the causes of inefficiency, delay and unfairness in the adminis- Money Problems Luncheon Topic Jacob Isacoff, president of Charleston Federal Savings and Loan Assn., will discuss "Mortgage Money Problems," at a luncheon meeting of the Kanawha Valley Board of Realtors Wednesday in the Rose City Cafeteria in South Charleston. trative proceedings of all federal agencies and recommending how these proceedings can be improved. The conference, which began operating in 1968. conducts most of its investiga- t i o n s t h r o u g h c o n s u l t a n t reports prepared by law pro-" fessors. ; Congress's Joint Committee on Internal Revenue Taxation has a mandate to monitor the IRS but because of the heavy pressure of writing substantive tax laws, the question of how the laws are administered has been mostly ignored.
