The examiners said that the city had refused to pay for maintenance of its prisoners in the county- jail because of a controversy over the exact amount of its debt. They pointed out. however, that records of committment are incomplete, making it almost impossible to determine the correct bill. Findings of $1.190 and ST75.25 were returned against Mrs. Fannie C. Matthews. ?«'S*?."t matron of the county jail, for furnishing meals to women prisoners and delinquents contrary to state law. The examiners reported that Dr. Ray McDaniel, former county coroner, had received 560 for two un- authrized autopsies: 513.40 lor an inquest in Coshocton county on order of the prosecuting attorney here, and 519 for excessive mileage while on official business. j It is illegal, according to the e»| aiTiiners. for officials of tn'c "Avon- j dale children's home to spend 1 $38.75 for a course for a ward at Meredith Business college. It is likewise contrary to law, for them to pay S3 to Guy C. and David R. Fitz for a Lash higii school class ring i'or another ward.

The Nazi armies from the north reported they had: captured Thebes and Chalcis, circled to within 25 miles of : the Greek capital and pushed on against the weakened allied defense lines. British troops, tired but still unbroken, fought back from mountain slopes northwest of the capital V in an effort to protect the only road to southern Greece and permit the bulk of their expeditionary force to embark. With the battle admittedly lost in Greece, the British : prepared to fight on from Crete and south to bolster their= I position against expected attacks on both ends of the MedK terranean.
