PAGE SIX PUBLIC OPINION, CHAMBERSBURG, PA., WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1956 LEADER CIS AVOWS USE OF 'PLATES' Promises Dismissal of Any One Who Use Records to Solicit Party Funds HARRISBURG !.F Gov. Leader said today he disapproves using state address plates to solicit' political party contributions. He, promised that if this has been; done the person responsible will' be fired from the state service, j The governor issued his state-j ment in renly to a demand madej yesterday by Postmaster General! Arthur E. Gummerfield that anj investigation be made of the practice. Summerfield quoted newspaper stones charging tha. address plates of the state were used to circulate letters to official auto inspection stations inviting pur chases of $53 tickets to last Thurs- 1 day's fund raising dinner for Ad-lai Stwrenson in Harrisburg. i -With regard to the $50 contributions neither Secretary (of Revenue Gerald A.) Gleeson nor I was aware of the fact that any commonwealth address plates were being used to solicit contributions," the governor said. He added: "Needless , to say we disapprove this practice emphatically. The secretary and I are investigating this matter and I wish to state at the outset that the person or persons responsible for this viola-, tion will be dismissed from state service." Leader attached to his statement a photostat of a letter dated Oct. 19, 1948, signed by Anna R. Decker, secretary to the wife of former governor and now U.S. Sen. James H. Duff. The letter accompanied $30 in "contributions for the Republican State Committee of Pennsylvania on behalf of two telephone operators at the executive mansion," according to Leader. The last sentence of the letter reads, "I assume the receipts will come through in the regular way" and Gov. Lender in his statement said thus is "a clear indication that this practice was so widespread that it had become systematized." Leader said that anyone who contributed to the Democratic party "under the impression that he would receive special consid oration or favors will not receive such consideration and favors." ; He directed the finance committee to refund any such con-' tribution and asked for anyone "who feels he falls in this category" to contact him personally. ; PUBLIC SALE The undcislKin'il administrators of tlir t 'ha liner fimey Kslutt'. will M'I1 ;il tils lute residence In Kfiikllill, 1.4 mile southwem of ii l.i.xeiiUM, lltitiliiiLtilon Comity, on Saturday, Sept. 22, 1956 At l-'::t(l P.M.
