Senate Hearing Turns on Buying
of Publicity Bureau by Repub

Dupont, G. 0. P. National Com
mitteeman, Delaware, Admits
Purchasing Advertising Agency
By Li. C. Martin
Washington, Sept. 25. U. P.)
Testimony at the closing session of
the senate committee Investigating
campaign expenditures today was to
the effect that prominent Democrats
had helped buy a soldier newspaper
and that prominent Republicans had
helped buy an advertising agency.
It was not shown that either the pa
per or the agency was being used for
political purposes, this being denied.
The committee asked Richard H.
Waldo concerning the testimony of J.
Lu Hefiernan. who said Waldo, repre
senting the "Duponts." hsd tried to get
hold of the "Stars and Stripes." Waldo
said Herrernan had told him Bernard
Baruch put up $7000 and Secretary of
Agriculture Meredith $2500 to help buy
me paper, or which lietfernan is an
official, and that W. D. Jamieson
lemocratic finance director, had "as
sessed" Baruch and Meredith for these
JAMIESOX LOANS !
Earlier in the day Mrs. E. M. Paries
Jamieson s secretary, aald she shad
bought control of the paper and that
Jamieson had loaned her S4000 to make
the purchase. She had borrowed $34,000
additional, she said, but refused to tell
Waldo an id In his opinion the paper
was not being used as a political organ
and Mrs. Parks declared she had in
sisted that it be kept out of politics.
T. Coleman Dupont, Republican na
tional committeeman from Delaware,
testified that he. William Boyce Thomp
son, chairman of the ways and means
committee of the Republican national
committee, and some others had bought
an advertising agency, which placed ad
vertisements in foreign language news
papers.!.' He denied this was part of a
plan to control the editorial policy of
foreign- language papers so that they
would support Harding and Coolidge.

Guy Mason, Washington representa
tive of" the League to Enforce Peace,
said he helped get a 147,500 contribution
from Bernard Baruch and the league
had tried to get a large aum from Henry
Ford, but got nolhlag.
E. E. Britten, private secretary to
Secretary of the Navy Daniels, said
Daniels paid his own way to the Demo
cratic convention at San Francisco.
In connection with Baruch's alleged
contribution to the League ta Enforce
Peace, committee members called atten
tion to the fact that testimony has
shown contributions, pledgea or invest
ments by Baruch of more than $100,000.
Other contributions of Baruch were $25,
000 for production of a moving picture
entitled "Uncle Sam of Freedom Ridge,"
an additional $12,500 which, it was testi
fied, Baruch has obligated himself for
in connection with . the picture, $12,500
for distribution to newspapers of "Uncle

earnestly desires, and what is more,
the verdict will be favorable to the
league, for no matter what reasons
other states may have for casting

Cox, the fundamental reasons why
Utah is going Democratic this year
is her fervent interest in the League
of Nations as a step in the direction
