An annual relief appropriation of $3,000,000 was voted by the forty- fifth general assembly 'in extra session in the spring of 1934. The same session passed the three point tax law and created the state old age pension system. Several departments showed increases in operating costs in 193435 over 1933-34. The attorney-general office spent $104,331 the last fiscal year, against $87,157 for the : preceding period. New police radio stations, however, required $14,999.19 of the increase. Expenses in the state auditor's office rose from $215,472 to $254,100. County accounting per diem and travel- dropped from $111,022 to $63,897, but an added duty, school accounting, pushed the. total up $81,488. Salary costs moved up from $20,899 to $29,047. Roads Also Larger. "State roads" within board of control institutions was the only substantially larger figure under the board of control, rising from $5,039 to $13,760, or approximately balancing the increase registered in the board's department administra- 'tion expense from $70,012 in 193334 to $78,888 the following year. The same situation prevailed in the department administration report of the board ' of education. This statement registered a rise from $45,003 to $51,879 altogether, because of "state roads." The bureau of labor, the kinpin .employment service unit now, spent $47,989, against $24,856 in the preceding year, all of the increase com ing in the employment division which has charge of relief agency placements.
