FBI investigates Hays'
WASHINGTON £4' - The FBI
is investigating an allegation
that Rep. Wayne Hays (D-Ohio)
used public funds to buy paint-
ings, antiques and oriental rugs
during trips abroad, a Justice
Department source said vester-
day. A Hays spokesman said
the objects were bought with
his own money, not with tax-
The source said the investi-
gation is in a very preliminary
stage, and that prosecutors do
not yet have any reason to be-
lieve that it is true, or not
Meanwhile, the House agreed
to turn over to a federal grand
jury the payroll records of four
House committee employes, in-
cluding those of Hays' former
mistress, Elizabeth Ray. The
grand jury is investigating
whether Hays misused public
funds in hiring Miss Ray and
Also yesterday, the House re-
vealed that the same federal
grand jury had subpoenaed pay-
roll records of four staff mem-
bers of former Rep. James Hast-
ings (R-N.Y.), covering a period
from September 1969 to March
31 of this year. The House voted
to turn over the Hastings mate-
rial at the same time it voted
on the Hays subpoenas. It was
the first indication of an official
probe of aHstings' staff.
A Justice Department sou,'ce
said the Hastings investigation
is entirely separate from that

Hays' spokesman Carol Clatw-
son confirmed that Hays has
a collection of oil paintings, an-
tiques and rugs at his Ohio farm
and in his congressional office.
She said Hays had bought the
items with personal funds aver
a period of 20 or 30 years, and
she denied flatly that any gov-
ernmental money was usad.
"He has receipts and can-
celled checks for all items that
were purchased," she said, ad-
ding that FBI investigators had
not yet asked to see the re-
ceipts and checks.
She said she did not know

The Justice Depar';mert
source would not say wno had
