Asserting that the purpose of the Public Works Administration always has been to win recovery, not votes, Secretary of the Interior Ickes as sailed last night "fantastic charges unsupported by even a scintilla of evidence that P. W. A. was playing politics" in the campaign just cloeed. Fewer and fewer projects were ap proved as the campaign advanced and not one after October 17, the Secretary said. On the contrary, hundreds of allotments were rescinded in the weeks preceding the election. Having refused to talk it out with critics In pre-election days, Ickes said in a radio address last night that his unusual silence under fire was be cause of an unwillingness to be a party to injecting P. W. A. into a political campaign In any manner. If P. W. A. had been playing politics, the Secretary said. It would have been particularly active during recent weeks when it was doing nothing. He added: "We would have held back a few hundred millions of dollars to put to use where they would do the most good as the campaign developed." One of the false charges by "Re publican leaders and their partisan organs," Ickes declared, was that he had bought the State of Maine with public works funds. Actually, he said, "fewer projects were approved for Maine than for any other State," although expendi tures there were comparatively large because the Navy, with funds from P. W. Α., chose to build a number of ships In Maine shipyards. RED CROSS JUNIORS LAUDED ON RADIO Undersecretary Phillips Refers tc Aims and Activities of 7,000,000.
