Bill Prohibiting Campaign
Fund from Going to Other
States Passes Senate
The first direct results of the con
gressional Investigation of campaign
expenditures came when the senate
passed Senator Clapp's bill prohibiting
the sending of campaign funds from
one state to another.
If the house approves the measure
It will put rigid limitations, not only
on the activities of general political
Interests, hut also on the work of such
organizations as the National Associa
tion of Manufacturers, the American
Federation of Labor and the National
Association of Woman's Suffrage.
The bill prohibits the carrying or
sending of funds from one state to
another to be used In the eelctlon of
president, vice-president, presidential
electors or members of congress.
The propopcii new law would not
prohibit the present work of national
political committees, so long as they
make public reports of all contribu
tions received nuil cxpoditures.
