SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 23 1934 IOWA LOST $414,363 IN PENITENTIARY FACTORY OUTPUT CONTRACTS WITH COMPANY SCORED Findings of Unsatisfactory Condition Not Related to Present Warden. DBS MOINES, March 23. CrB-- Jlfce state lost $414,363.37 plus a $100,000 outlay for machinery in connection with .the contract with the Dearborn company o£ Chicago for the output of the chair and furniture factory at Fort Madison penitentiary, G. S. Worden, supervisor of state 'audits, reported today. The Dearborn contracts, which ran from Jan. 1, 1928 to Oct 2S, 1933, were discussed by the. auditor in his report to State Auditor C. W. Storms on the examination of the institution for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1933. The report also commented upon e. finding that "authorized payments ranging from ?25 to ?2,500 were made from inmates' personal accounts for legal services- in connection with paroles." Based on Balance. Stating that these payments in some cases "apparently were based on the balance on deposit in the particular accounts" the report recommended immediate action "to suppress the payment of excessive fees for legal services given to inmates and that under no circumstances should the amount on deposit in the prisoners' accounts be revealed." It was pointed out in the report that none of the findings covered the incumbency of the present warden, Col. Glenn Haynes and that none of the present members of the state board of control were in office at the time the first contract was signed with the Dearborn com- -pany. Relations with the Dearborn, company, the auditors reported, were unsatisfactory almost from the start and "continued throughout the life of the contract." Adjustments Made. Pointing out that the contract . provided that the state should receive not less than ?50,000 a year profit, .the auditors noted that the state was compelled to make a $25,- ·046.97 concession in the first six months, and later made other adjustments. The Dearborn company was reported still to owe the state $10,561.92, and the auditors recommended that no compromise be made and that necessary legal steps be taken if payment is not forthcoming immediately. The auditors placed on the loss ^sustained in the chair and furniture responsibility for an increase in the total operating costs of $427,003.08 for the fiscal year 1932 to $511,021.88 for the 1933 fiscal year. Quarry Shows Loss. The net loss from prison industries was placed at $72,694.88 for the current year compared with a profit of $18,138.92 for the previous year. The quarry was said to have shown a loss of; $15,531.19 for the 1933 fiscal year and a combined loss ^of $39,535.42 for the last three years. An increase of $8.21 an inmate in subsistance costs during 1933 was said to have been offset partially by farm and garden profits. operating costs an. inmate was reported to have dropped $7.44 to $299.73 a person during the year. Declaring that operating costs for the quarry were found to be excessive, the report said that unless sales can be increased there is no justification for continuing the quarry. The quarry is now being operated only to procure stone for extension of the prison walls, the state auditor was told.
