Don't Tell Half tlicj Story of Expenditures • : BY.RODNEV DDTCHEK WASHINGTON — No Oiie ever knows how much money has been' .•>[««(. during- a presidential com-' p.iign. Experts have estimated i normal qutlay of $20,000,000 to 525,000,000, and all the evidence indicates that the campaign a! 1936 was abnormal enough to set aix all-time record. I The lasl pre-election statements of the Republican and Democratic notional and congiessional com-' mittees showed the G. O. P. had spent about $7,500,000 and the Democrats 'uliout $3,5CO,000. : I Those sums Included neither the V)ig last-minute ellort to get out' the .vole nor the final payment 1 of bills. Even If they had, the official total wouldn't have been the. half of it. • Lots' of moi|3y gets slltycd surreptitiously In n campaim in such -my that it can't be traced. How much, for instance, did the great payioll-envelojie campaign—in which cmplojcrs tried to arouse workers against the New Deal Social Security Act—I really cost? Employers paid most of the bin and were not re- ' quired to report expenses No one could guess the total of personal expenditures designed to help elect candidates Private campaigns aealnst certain phases of the New Deal, costing lens of thousands of dollars, needn't be reported us aimpnlgn expenditures. No one knows the total ot expenditures by state, county, andj city committees. County "expcn- •dUures are often; larger than I slate committee expenses, because! they usually cover the big ' cost! of getting out tlie voto. I The Democratic national com-| inltlee originally estimated its! budget at $2,000,000. raised that to $3.000,000, and was going much stronger than Hint nt the llnlsh. The Hepubllcan committee's budget was $8.636,000 and almost certainly no less than that was spent. ' ''The 1 ' American Liberty league, the' 'National Union for Social Justice, and the United Mine Workers cneli spent more than $5GO,OCO this year. Labor's .Non-' Partisan Lcasuc, with its state organizations, spent an estimated million dollars. I The Good Neighbor League and the Progressive National Committee, both working lor Roosevelt, cnch spent more llran $100.000. So did the Jen~en<w>ian Democrats. Personal expenditures of congressional and somitorlni candt-' dntes have been estimated as us S2,ODO,CCO aij:l money spent for local mid state tickets has teen placed between five and ten millions. About M.OOfl.OOO Appears to have been spent by political par- lies for radio—Republicans and other anti-New IJealcrs buying at least 50 per cent more than Iho Democrats. Other Ini'ise sums were spent for newspaper advertising, billboards, sound Irucks, cnmunlgn literature, buttons, office space, thousands of paid 'Workers, nncl travel expenses. Organized labor raised or contributed more than a million dollars In the campaign. But even more valuable wns the assistance it (>iiv« in organizing the Roosevelt vote. Conspicuous Republican' contributors wlio gave 55,000 or more included William Randolph Hearst —first reported down for $:!0,000 and Inter for 515,000 more—John 13. Rockefeller, Ogden Mills.
