Mr. Hays also testified the re

seeking to raise approximately
11,000,000 to be donated to the
various stato committees for their
local campaigns, making a total of
slightly moro than 4,000,000 In tho
republican campaign for all pur
Mr. Cummlngs declared he be
llcved this amount wns excessive nnd
pointed to the 191ft campaign, say
ing that ho learned ln his home
stato of Connecticut tho republicans
spent $250,000 ln that year. He
considered this was too much for
a commonwealth of that slxe. "If
you let , the state commltteo run
wild," ho said, "you get an accumu
lated expenditure which In Itself Is
nu outstanding evidence of corrupt
purpose. I suggest that this Is Just
what Is going to happen with tho
republicans this year."
"Has either party any monopoly ln
this practice." asked Senator Kdgo.
"Thero Is no monopoly upon the
system, rejoined Mr. Cummlngs,
"but there Is no doubt about repub
lican success ln that direction."
Hoth Mr. Hays nnd Mr. Cummlngs
refused to discuss details of their
commltteo financing, asserting that
as chairmen they had only n general
knowledge of such subjects nnd that
tho books and records of tho com
mltteo trensures would have to bo
relied upon In that respect. '
Neither chairmen knew of nny
largo Individual contributions and
Mr. Hays was rather positive, thnt
the republican plan to limit Individ
ual gifts to 11,000 was being carried
out succissfully. IIu knew of 38 ex
ceptions to tho rulo, tho largest be
lug for (9.000, two for (5,000 each
and the other 35 for lesser amounts.
Mr. Cummlngs explained to the
committee that tho organization of
which ho was chairman was poverty
stricken when he ussumed that of
fice and he left It to his successor
(651 In cash and a net Indebtedness
of slightly moro than (100,000.
A charge by Mr. Hays that as
early as July, 1919, the democratic
commltteo had an elaborate fund
gathering organization In tho Ilond
building, Washington, was explained
by Mr. Cummlncs as n bureau for
both propaganda and finance He
said It '.grew from a hope," hut was
reduced In size when It was found
tho overhead charges for maintain
ing the organization exceeded the re
ceipts by (10,000 to (15,000 a month.
Tho two chairmen agreed that
legislation looking to federal con
trol of presidential campaigns was
desirable. Senator Pomercnn argued
that congress wan powerless nt pres.
ent because the supremo court had
held that presidential electors wero
state officials. A suggestion that a
constitutional amendment might bo
necessary lo glvo congress oversight
of presidential campaigns brought
from Mr. Hays a proposal thnt tho
parties might unite In an effort to
obtain such a change on tho basic
