Pleasant. Work was started early this week on records at the state prison at Ft. Madison, State Auditor C. W. Storms announced. One of the most intricate sets of records of all state institutions Is necessary at the prison because of the varied industries carried on within its boundaries, .Storms said. Work of the department after Jan. 1 will- be divided into three divisions under the new law. Storms explained. Accounts will be, examined for counties, cities and schools in one division, state offices and departments will form a second division and the third will consist of a group of 60 or more Iowa building and loan associations, that may be audited by the department or hire outside auditors at their own discretion. One of the best features of the new plan viV be the opportunity to organize a uniform method of accounts in all phases of the state and local government. Storm* said. Most important in the state auditing plan accounts rrill be the public school records which heretofore largely have been handled by outside auditors. Storms said.
