(Bulletin Staff Photo) PERCY INSISTS Fund No Campaign Move By WALTER R. MEARS " Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican Sen. Charles H. Percy insists there is no trace of presidential politics in an effort by his homcystale Illinois supporters to raise $100,000 to help fi- FREE! nance his Senate office. Nor, said Percy, does the fund bear any resemblance to the one which exploded into political trouble for Richard M. Nixon when he was running for vice president 15 years ago. ''It's a mistake to compare Illl them," the Illinois senator said in an interview. Percy, who plans to leave Dec. fi on a personally financed world tour, said again he is not a candidate for the 1968 Republican presidential nomination. In Chicago, Thomas J. Hous- FREE!

Tenti»|nfrt I » «' B 1 er, a lawyer who managed Percy's Senate campaign last year, said a group of supporters is trying to raise a minimum of $100,000 a year to defray Ihe expenses the senator faces in maintaining offices in Washington, Chicago and Centralia, 111. Houser said it is "simply erroneous' 1 to consider the fund a part of any national campaign move in Percy's behalf. He said Percy has .spent $70,000 of his own money this year—his first in the Senate—to pay office expenses in excess of congressional allowances. "Despite the fact that ho has some personal wealth, this is a burden some of his supporters want to help him with," Houser said. Percy became a millionaire in business before he turned to politics. "7 thought it was a very nice gesture on those people's part," said Percy. "The allowances here are simply inadequate. You just can't possibly maintain on a Senate allowance an ade- quale office for a slate the size of Illinois." Percy said he couldn't coin pute off-hand just how much the official allowance is. It is based on several factors, including the size of the state a senator is from and staff size. He has a staff of about 40 but his official allowance is sufficient only for 22 employes. Per< cy said he already is putting his $30,000 Senate salary and all his speechmaking fees back into the cost of running his office. Percy said the money the Houser group js soliciting would be controlled by a committee, carefully audited and used to help cover staff salaries and ex penses, mailing, printing, reports to Illinois residents and similar expenses. Furthermore, Percy said, he will continue to put in most of the money, himself. He said that and the lack of secrecy about the operation make jt unlike {he fund for which Nixon was criticized Jn J952, H§ said only by "twisting the facts" can the two, be Jikeued. "So far, the support funds have all been put in by me," Percy said, Sell Those Unwonted Items In The Bulletin Classifieds IffiNEWJ SWOV . . . § 'For US, Troops in Vietnam this war."
