West Eupl atieily Denies Assisting
Vluuii to (Clear IUp lDeflt
(fay Associated Press.)
CHICAGO, March 15.-Examining
more 'than a score of witnesses on
the opening day of the inquiry here,
the Senate Teapot Dcme sub-commit-
tee today traced disposition of some
more of the Sinclair Continental Trad-
ing company bonds and uncovered
some Republican party financing
which intrigued its two members,
Nyc, of North Dakota and Norbeck,
of South Dakota.
From Miss Flora H. Johnson, secre-
tary of B. A. Eckhart, who twice was
examined in Washington, the inve'sti-
gators learned that $2,000 worth of
the $60,000 of Sinclair bonds which
Will H. Hays sent to the late Fred
H. Upham, went to Eckhart on De-
cember 5, 1923. This was the day
before the Republican National com-
mittee met at Washington to select
the place for the 1924 convention. !
Relates Conversation
Relating a telephone conversation
she had yesterday with Eckhart, who
now is in California, Miss Johnson
said she had been informed that Up-I
ham called her chief on the telephone
on that day and asked him to take
$5,500 of Liberty bonds as security
and make a donation to the national
committee in a like anount.
Eckhart drew his check for that
amount and went to Upham's office,
but when he arrived he learned that
$3,500 of the bonds had been disposed
of before his arrival. He took the re-
maining $2,000, selling them later, and
$3,500 in cash, since his check was
drawn for that amount.
From Homer K. Galpin, chairman of
the Cook county (Chicago) Republican
committee, the senators learned that
tdae Republican rptional committee
had not made a contribution to that
organization in early 1924, although
the records of the national committee,
as Upham gave them to William D.
Hodges, the present treasurer, showed
that such a contribution was made.
Committee members are wondering
whether $25,000 of the Sinclair bonds
were disposed of, and the Cook county
committee credited with the contri-
Morand Testiies
After Joseph J. Morand, a manufac-
turer, had testified that in 1923 he
made a cash contribution of $2,500
to the national Republican fund
through Upham, Chairman Nye indi-
cated that this might represent an-
other liberty bond transaction, but
Morand denied that he took any bonds
as securities and later in the (lay pro-
duced a check for $2,500, representing
a contribution made in 1922 and not
1923. .
Roy o. West, secretary of the Re-
publican national organization since
June 1924, testified emphatically that
he did not assist Upham to clean up
the deficit in 1923. Asked if he knew
of any Liberty bonds made available
to wipe out the deficit, West said he
had never heard of it until the Senate
investigation was put under way. He
added that he was "surprised," that
this method of financing had been re-
sorted to by Upham and Will H. Hays,
a former national chairman, and
"Herbert Hoover is the best quali-
fied man for the presidency in the
country today, The Republican party
would do well to clean house with
him," stated Prof. Everett S. Brown

of the political science department,
speaking last night at a meeting of the
Hoover-for-President club of the Uni-
"The opposition has so far spent its
time working against Hoover rather
than helping others, but the way toj
win is to show that you have the best
man in the field rather than to criti-
cize," Professor Brown continued.
Ile then briefly outlined Foover's
life, laying special emphasis on inci-
dents that proved his honesty, sincer-
ity and administrative ability.

Inadequate supervision of athletic

among the charges filed by the 'ex-
