McAdoo. speaking at the dinner
of the national league of Ma-

"there Is no menace so great to our
nation as the corrupt use of money
for campaign purposes."
I was secretary of the treasury
for six years and know the harm that
is done by the misuse of money in
this way." he said. "T am not taJkinc
about Republicans alone but Demo-
crats as well for they all look alike
to me when they are guilty of spend
ing money m tse manner indicated."
Mr McAdoo declared camnaign
contributors would seek tbefr reward
In various ways one of which was

pointed out that a iraction or a cent
reduction would run into big figures.

paign expenditures he declared was
one of the few "intelligent things the

There is one thing America can

that is the purchase of the presidency
of the United States."
"In my opinion the election law
should be changed b$ said. The
expenses for running the national
elections should be paid out of the
national treasury and If this were
done the cost would be infinitely
less. It would be reduced one fifth.
The money should be taken from the
federal treasury and the law should
prescribe specifically how the money
should be spent.
"It then would be out of the ques-
tion to pass laws for crooked poli-
ticians who have to be repaid in some
way for the moneys they have ad-
vanced for some candidate's campaign-"

must first be purified.
