This, he'said, would give the party ! a total of $3,000,000 for the prcsi- | dential campaign. The amount | would be adequate, Knox said, if the cost of radio broadcasting were eliminated. In this connection, he suggested that just after Labor Day the election year both great parties be allowed an equal amount of time on the radio without expense. Knox asserted that the feeling that the Republican party "had become . . . the spokesman and defender of entrenched wealth" grew out of the party's source of campaign funds and the system of excessive tariff rates. "It is sheer political suicide for the Republican party to continue to sponsor and support a system of indirect subsidies to industry--which is exactly what a system of excessively high tariff rates is. "We must, of course, continue to support a protective tariff high enough to compensate for the wide difference in wage standards between this country and foreign countries ... but beyond this we should not go."
