(UPI) — Trade continued ralher slow late Monday and early Tuesday morning; few sales slaughter steers & heifers By JIM COOK Of The News Staff Plans by the State Fire Marshal to step up inspections of hotel and boarding houses will have little immediate effect in Hays. Hays Fire Chief Don Ford said Tuesday he has not received any word from Fire Marshal Floyd Dibbern to scrutinize local hotels and motels, although Dibbern's staff has been eyeing several such struclures across Ihe slate. Ford suspects one major reason Hays firemen have not been asked lo begin such inspections. "We're not in the position where we have big hotels or boarding houses," he observed. But Ford said his department is always willing to conduct fire safety Inspections on request. Holels and molels on Ihe Fire Marshal's list, which already included studenl housing and apartmenls, he came known after a hotel fire in Hollon claimed five lives recently. The major inspection push began after an Augusl 29 fire al a Baker Universily fralernily house killed five students. Ford said his inspections of student housing in Hays have not brought aboul any closings. "Not yet, anyway," he said. The department, acting under Ihe Fire Marshal's guidelines, has been inspecling all local housing in which five or more college students live. Ford said initial inspections turned up some shortcomings, primarily a lack of proper escape routes, the need for fire alarms, and electrical wiring 1 . "We're still making follow- up inspections," he said. After finding problems, Ford gave apartment owners a period of time lo correcl the deficiencies or face possible closure of the building. may face a shut down within 30 days. "Everything's wrong with It," he said after inspecting the building with Its owners. Dibbern said he doubts the building can be brought up to safety standards. The Fire Marshal has eighl inspeclors working throughout the state, and will add three more in January. Dibbern told the Dally News Tuesday he is not aware of any hotel or motel problems in the Hays area. "We're not aware of any unless they arc drawn to our attention or our Inspector picks them up," Dibbern said. "Chief Ford is doing a good job on the inspections out there," he said of the Hays Fire Chief. "As long as he keeps checking under the life safety code and the uniform building code, you're In good shape." State Has $28 Million In Uncollectable Bills TOPEKA, Kan. (UPI) - \n estimated $28 million that individuals and firms owe the state is uncollectablc, according to a report by the Legislative Post Audit Division. The audit, distributed to the public Monday, said the amount is included in a total $109 million owed to the state for services provided by state agencies such as charges for care at state mental hospitals and overpayment of unemployment compensation benefits.

"Legislative Post Audit has concluded, however, that at least $28 million, or 25.6 per cent, of the reported balance of $109 million is un- collectable," Brown said. "This means that one of every four dollars currently owed to the state should not be expected as future revenue." The auditor said lack of fully reliable information makes it impossible to estimate what portion of the remaining $81 million also may be tin- collectable. For effective management of accounts receivable, Brown said an agency must have an accurate balance in order to anticipate revenues accurately and allow for effective budgeting and financial planning.

Commissioners said all agency musl know and use Ihe mosl effcclivc collection techniques for its particular needs to insure minimum loss from uncollected accounts. "The audit found that most stale agencies have not developed the information necessary to meet either of these requirements," Brown said. "In the absence of any statewide system or guidelines, each agency has established Us own procedures for handling accounts receivable."

The report recommended lhal state agencies implement a basic • system of accounts receivable management and oullined how such a system could be implemented at various agencies.
