Tire/Tube Combo

Can I use 700 x 23 tubes on my 700 x 32 cross tires?

I'd always been told I need to use the larger tubes and not the 23's but a LBS told me that using the smaller tubes on the larger tires is not a problem...............

What do you all think?

I use whatever I have in stock and have even given a friend a 35 to put in his 23 they seem to work ok though I do get the occasional flat.
