Honesty is undoubtedly the best policy, but sometimes it can get complicated. Several weeks ago Paul Watkins, 9, son of Mr and Mrs William Walking, picked up a $10 bill near the Security State Bankl He was with two companions, Jeff Pickett and Paul Christiansen. The three boys went to the police station and turned in the money. They were told that if it: was unclaimed, the money would be given back. i Nobody claimed the money. ?he boys returned to the police tation and each received a third, aul Watkins received $3,34. Mrs Watkins later went back tj> he police station with her son and the $3.34. Inquiry was made as to why the police divided the money, three ways, and wKen they left the $3.34 was placed on the police counter toy, Mrs Watkins. Mayor C. C, Shierk was contacted by the Watkins and asked to 'review the matter Saturday morning. The Mayor ^as .called to attend the Weidenhoff expansion program announcement, and Mayor Shierk, in the meantime,"^ had mailed a check to the Watkins for $3.34 stating it had been' ,* left at the city hall and rightful- -T ly belonged to Paul Watkins.
