Pauley's own story of profits "honestly and honorably made" In commodity speculation was published loday by scnat* investigators. In a Jan. 3 letter made public by a Senate Appropriations Sub-committee. Pauley said his market operations were successful — he has made nearly $1,000.000 since the war ended—but were not based on any Inside Information. "It is a slory of profit honestly and honorably made, legally ethically and In the American tradition." The West Coast millionaire, former treasurer of the National Democratic Committee and now assistant to Army Secretary Kenneth Koyall, asked the senators to "ice that I am vindicated" ot any wrong-doing. Explaining that he did not presume to compare himself with Bernard M. Baruch, Pauley sard current suggestions that "success is a misdemeanor" reminded him of a conversation in which Baruch told him ol his o\vn investigation by Congress. That was back in 1917 and concerned substantial profits Baruch made by selling securities short on the strength of peace rumors. Pauley wrote that Baruch's selling activity resulted in "whispers that he had been cashing in on White House 'leaks.'" But it was later established that Baruch was "simply out-thinking others in the market." he said "I submit to you today my own story oi profits, and while it is obviously not as spectacular as the one i just cited, it is a story of success- | fill operation, nonetheless," Pauley j said. Pauley said he has been 'convinced thrmiKlimit the past three years that prices could only g» one way—up. He said information on which Ihat belief was based was available to everybody reading the newspapers anil was used by thousands. Pauley noled that (he New YorK Times on Jan. 2 said In an editorial th&t the Idea of "profiteering by 'insiders'" was "just plain nonsense." He said he agreed and gave these examples from his own speculations to show that he did not take advantage ol any inside Infor- East and West Show Signs of Getting Together At Crucial Meeting of Allied Control Council IBKRI.1N, Jan. 20.
