Election Campaigns Cost Huge Amounts WASHINGTON (UPI) - More than a third of the Senate campaigns waged in 34 states last fall were million dollar contests and four of them were i n the $2 million class, a new study shows. The citizens action group Common Cause Thursday released total spending figures for the 1974 congressional campaigns: Nearly $74 million, with Democrats outspending Republicans by nearly $8 million. There were 12 Senate races in which total spending by candidates exceeded $1 million, which was not significantly larger than 1972, when 10 of the 33 Senate campaigns hit the million dollar mark. But only one contest in 1972 reached $2 million. The big spenders last fall were in California, where Democratic Sen. Alan Cranston, spent $:l.3 million to $702,000 by Republican H. L. Richardson; New York, where GOP Sen. Jacob Javrts laid out $1 million to defeat Democrat Ramsey Clark, $855,000, and Conservative Barbara Keating, $192,000; Kansas, where GOP Sen. Robert Dole spent $1.1 million against Democrat William Roy's $837,000; and Indiana, where Democratic Sen. Birch Ba^h spent $1 million, Republican Richard Lugar spent $614,000 a n d the state Republican Central Committee spent $418,000 for the GOP candidate. The other $1 million-plus Senate races were in Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and South Dakota. The biggest individual spender was Cranston, who still was $1 million under Sen. John Tower's $2.3 million in Texas in 1972. The largest gap in the million dollar campaigns was in Ohio, where Democrat John Glenn spent more than $1.1 million against Republican Ralph Perk's $292,000. Common Cause, in adding up the campaigns, said 16 of the 65 major party candidates for the Senate had spent more in 1974 than would be allowed in future elections. The new election finance law limits Senate campaign spending with a formula based on each state's voting age population. In contests for the House, there were 42 races in which more than a quarter of a million dollars was spent. Commong Cause said, however, only 22 of the 810 major party candidates for the House spent more than $168,000 set as the ceiling for individual candidates injfuture elections.

ByCARRICKLEAVITT SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) - Jo Daly, 29, may be the first official anywhere on a government payroll whose job is designed to serve members of the gay community. Assisting San Francisco's estimated 100,000 homosexual men and women seeking "a fair deal from employers, landlords and police" is a perplexing vocation, she says. Ms. Daly started work March 5 on her $7,400-per-year job as a member of the city's Human Rights Commission. Wearing faded jeans, a blue sweater and bright blue suede coat with silver snaps, she sat in her downtown fifth-floor office, answering the telephone and sipping black coffee. Overhead, a poster quoting Women's Liberation Movement leader Gloria Steinem said: "There is no such thing as masculinity or femininity; but in fact, there is humanity first." At 5-foot-4 and 140 pounds, Ms. Daly is a little plumpish. But her brown eyes dance with excitment as she sorts through Human Rights Commission reports and the surveys beginning to accumulate on her desk. "Employment is the biggest area that can be documented," she said. "We have to identify the people and the employer. I'm just beginning a big program at, the telephone company. They have a policy against gay people." Homosexuals do work at the telephone company, she said, but "they must remain closeted. I've had three complaints today from workers there who are gay." What can she do? "Start with the attitudes of employers." "People have fears that we're always trying to convert others into a gay life style," she said. "There's no need to worry. After all, I grew up in a heterosexual environment and it didn't rub off on me." Ms. Daly refers to her self as an "out of the closet" lesbian. She was raised in the Washington, D.C., area, were as a youngster in community schools she first became aware that she was gay. "I came out of the closet three years ago," she said. Gay women don't "cling" like they used to, she said. "It used to be role playing —the 'Butch' -things like that," she said. But the Women's Liberation Movement made us start thinking.
