00*. M, MM COURIER JTHlfl What Does Campaigning Cost? Douglas Estimates Near 75 Million Dollars By FBANCIS J. KELLY WASHINGTON l*-Sen. Paul H. Douglas <D-1I1) estimated today that'the two major parties spend "not far from 75 million dollars" between them on campaign costs at all levels In a presidential year. Douglas said small contributors furnish only a minor fraction of the funds, and that the big donors, In, the main, expect something In return for their money. Douglas proposed three remedies In his new book, "Ethics in Government," published today by the Harvard University Press. He said small contributors should be encouraged to give greater financial support to can- dlclales and particS; a limitation of perhaps-10 cents per registered voter should he set on the campaign spending for presidential and congressional candidates; and /consideration should be given to "moderate" community support of the campaigns out of tax money. The Illinois senator estimated a House member' has to spend ,a minimum of 510,000 on his campaign in a closely contested district, and more commonly two or three times that amount. For a senator from a fairly large state, he set the necessary cost at from $150,000 to $200,000. Douglas's book, based on a series of: lectures he delivered at Harvard last January, recommended the setting up of a "code of ethical proprieties" to which public officials would be expected to conform, subject to dismissal from office for violation. This code, as drawn by a Senate subcommittee which Douglas headed, would forbid: v 1). Engaging In any personal business transaction or private arrangement for personal profit based upon the official position or confidential information of the official, !). Accepting any valuable gift or favor from any person or organization with which the official transacted government business. 3). Discussing luture employment outside the government with any person or organization with which there was pending official business. 4). Divulging confidential commercial or economic information to unauthorized persons. 5), Becoming unduly involved ("for example, through frequent luncheons, dinners., parties, other expensive social engagements") with persons outside the government with whom the officials did business. Douglas disclosed' that he has set an arbitrary S2.50 cutoff on the worth ui any gift that he .will accept. Anything estimated to cost more than that goes back to the sender, he said. He reported tWs policy has kept him free of major involvements, "with a minimum of spiritual wear and "tear." Police Probe Murder, Robbery ' Of California Grocer, Children CHESTER, Calif.
