H u m p h r e y and George McGovern. In its final report, the panel seemed to clear Humphrey of violating the law in the use of $109,000 in personal funds for his unsuccessful campaign for the 1972 Democratic presidential nomination. And it dropped an earlier statement by staff investiga- ors, who had said McGovern may have violated at least the spirit of the law when he underpaid leftover campaign bills by some $35,000 while shifting $340,000 from his presidential coffers into his current Senate race fund. Both McGovern and Humphrey had registered strong protests about the staff findings Today In History By The Associated Press Today is Monday, July 15, the 196lh day of 1974.

Changes His Name MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) James L. Groh says he plans to be on the ballot in the November gubernatorial election and he's changed his name for the occasion to "Crazy Jim." The 40-year-old used car dealer, who also promotes local demolition derbies and operates a fruit stand in his working-class South Side neighborhood, had his name legally changed to "Crazy Jim" in Milwaukee County Circuit Court. It said Mills was personally wolved in setting up an ap- ·earance at one lawa farm ral- ,' which the co ops financed TM llh corporate funds. It .said Mills' former cam aign chairman, Joseph Johnon, a former official of one of le co-ops, had refused to lesii- ' about the matter on grounds f possible self-incrimination. · SAYS HE'S UNAWARE Mills has said publicly he vas unaware of what was going n in .the.

The report also said Humphey's campaign received the enefit of an apparently illega jenefit of an apparent! yillegal $25,000 corporate payment for omputer-mail lists.-The money vas paid by the largest dairy ^operative, Associated Milk 5 roducers Inc. The report cited evidence iiat Humphrey's campaign manager, Minneapolis attorney "ack Chestnut, was aware o'f -he use of corporate money and iclped arrange it. It said Chestnut also invoked he Fifth Amendment and reused to testify. Humphrey was asked to an- wer questions about the mater, but sent a letter saying he didn't know anythin gabout it. add senae panel The .same dairy co-op do- ated corporate money to Humphrey's 1968 presidential ampaign, and allegedly did so again in his 1970 Senate race. The report did not deal with hese payments because Ihe committee's inquiry was limit- id to the 1972 presidential elec- lon. The committee's invesliga- ors found that Humphrey had used $86,01,0 in stcck an(1 $23 ODO n cash of his own funds in the campaign, and originally said donations apparently violated he old federal law against campaign gifts of over $5,800 each.

The report still said Humph rey had hidden the use ol per sonal money when he made a voluntary public disclosure o ins campaign finances during the primary campaigns, whei secret donations were an issue NOT INTENTION On the McGovern malter, the final report said neither McGovern campaign workers nor the corporate creditors who wrote off bad debts had in tended to violate the lav. against corporate campaign do nations. It said the law never had been used to cover such a situation. The report said Presiden Nixon's campaign received the vast bulk of known, illegal cor porate donations of $749,OOC from a dozen companies. It said it found no evidence Nixon f u n d raisers had specific ally asked for illegal corporate money, but it also found (hut a n u m b e r of them didn't seem to care where the money came from and made no effort to see that it was fro ma legal source It said Nixon workers sy« tematically sought donation from high-nnd middle-level cor poration executives. It also seemed to question llu ambassadorships had been fo President's public denial tha sale during his administration. The report noted that one o Nixon's key fund raisers, Her hert L.
