P. M. Headlines By SALLY ADAMS ' R1CHARD NIXON ordered the books on his controversial 516,000 expense fund opened for public inspection Friday night The Republican vice-presidential candidate said he told attorney Dana Smith of Pasadena, trustee of the fund, to make public where the money came from and how it was used. He told whistle-stop crowds on the West Coast that the issue of the expense funds was a "Communist smear." The California senator has been accused of using iunas contributed by constituents to influence legislation In a message to Dwight Eisenhower, his running mate, Nixon said "The facts will show that not one red cent was spent by me iui my personal use. ine iacis win make it clear that such a legitimate political fund originated in an earnest and unselfish de sire on the part of the contributors to support my fight against Communism and corruption in government." Several pro-Eisenhower newspapers have severely criticised Nixon. The New York Herald Tribune said the California senator should withdraw from the race. The New York Times and the wasnington east also found fault with Nixon's conduct GOV. ADLAI STEVENSON refused to condemn Nixon without Knowing all the facts. He said, "Condemnations without all the evidence, a practice all to familiar to us, would be wrong." The Democratic presidential aspirant said the Remiblican nartv should reveal all the facts concerning the expense fund privately financed dj weaimy cauiornians. SEN. ROBERT TAFT said he saw no reason why senators and congressmen should not accept aid from their constituent "to help pay even personal expenses in Washington." He said the only rea son for criticism would arise if the donors asked for or received special favors. The Ohio senator declared, "I know that no such motive inspired the expense payments in the case of Dick Nixon." SEN. HUGH BUTLER knew of several senators from both parties who received financial aid in running their offices but got no part or sucn funds lor pay. He said the practice was fairly com mon in larger states "like New York and Illinois and California." The Nebraska senator said ihe extra expense accounts allowed by the government are not large enough "particularly for a young fel low like Nixon who has no outside income." ROBERT CROSBY. Republican gubernatorial candidate, said Nixon's action in accepting between $16,000 and $17,000 from private sources to defray expenses was "inexcusable," if it is true. Crosby, addressing a Lincoln luncheon club Friday, said he knew little of the details of the affair. Highlights of Crosby's speech were that he favors a return to the two-party system in the Nebraska legislature but supports the present unicameral system. In answer to a question from the floor, Crosby said he opposed a sales tax since the stale government does not need more money except for the highway fund.

Following college, he married Ivo Hall and practiced law in the city of Huntsville for 10 years. The political fever which the Senator contacted led him to campaign for a house seat He was so successful that a four piece band, hired by one of his opponents, shifted its alliance and played at Sparkman's rallies. Going to Washington as a fresh man senator In 1937, he became the protege of a senior senator and, with his aid, Sparkman be came a power in Congress. Senator Sparkman's attitudes on certain political points .is not clearly known at this time, but in 1950 he stated, "We Southern democratic Senators 21 of us are banded together and pledged to use every pariamentary de vice possible to defeat civil rights legislation. In 1950 the State Department selected Sparkman as one ef the five V. S. delegates (3 the U. N. General Assembly. Senator Sparkman's hig moment came when he delivered a brilliant speech la answering the Polish delegate's charge that the 17. S. land-compromise program was not as extensive as the program i n Communist c on trolled Poland. "Time" says of his work, "In the Serate, Sparkman has not been a standout on the floor. He is roost effective in Senate com mittees (Foreign Relations, Bank ing & Currency, and Small Busi ness."! His best work seems to come when meetings become very heated, and his great ability xo use facts comes forth in the form of acceptable solutions for all parties involved. Senator Sparkman and his wife have lived in Washington for 16 years. They have on child, 28 year old Julia Ann, whose husband is awaiting orders for carrier duty. A mem ber of the Methodist church.
