"The Republicans seem to have all they can find ways to spend," added Chairman Stephen A. Mitchell. "We don't." Mitchell addressed the National Press Club on the eve of the beginning of an Intensive eight-day Democratic drive for J5 contributions, to b« carried out by thousands of party volunteers throughout the country. In his prepared speech, Mitchell said: "The Republicans seem to have most of the big contributors on their side. There are some psople, you know, who want to help the Republican party try to persuade this country that the Democrats have (hrotlled private enterprise, and made It Impossible for a bus- v inessman to make any profit. "Strange as It seems, these are the people who always seem to have $5,000 burning & hole in their pockets. ... "The unfair balance of monej in political campaigns Is nothing new. The Democratic party nar rowly missed having broadcast canceled in 1918—and it was unable to order as many as it needed It Is no closely guarded secret tha we have come within en eyelas oJ having to cancel some of Gov Stevenson's telecasts and broac casts in th's campaign." Mitchell continued: "Whether such a situation shoul be called one party's buying a election or another party's forfel ing an election because of povert> 1 do not presume to decide. ^ "But I do know that such a si uation would be bad for this natio —and the announced Republlca plans for a blita saturation of tol vision and radio spots costing tv> million dollars are a step towar this dangerous monopoly—not monopoly of facts and issues, bi a'^nohopoly of some of the most werful media for letting tha peo- e know about them."

(Reeves, whose agency was re- ained by the Citizens for Elsen- ower organization to handle radlo- V promotion, said the plan was Iscarded because (I) the desired ir times were not for sale, and 2) "the money Is not available.") (Bob Mullin, a spokesman for itlzens for Eisenhower, said his rganizatlon planned an intensive adlo-TV campaign but its extent ld depend on how much money s contributed to pay for it, and m the availability of program pots.) Mitchell said: "The news coverage given to iresidential candidates by the press s the greatest safeguard \ve have against this sort of monopoly. But 1 do not think I am belittling the lower of the press when T say -hat it does not take the place of .elevision in making a candidate cnqwn to the people." Asserting "We just don't attract the big contributors," Mitchell added: 'But there is a danger In big contributions, a danger that applies equally to either party. "That danger is the influence of contributors upon the political party to which they contribute."
