For All Newspaper'Depo Telephone 4H1 Price Per Copy, Ten Cents HALT BERLIN INCIDENTS I State Changes Ruling The Cass county council approved $15,610.14 in additional appropriations and transfers of county funds Monday morning in a special session in the auditor's • office. At the same time Auditor Raymond Beckley revealed that the State Board of Tax Commissioners has given belated approval to $1,427.92 in additional appropriations which it previously had rejected on the grounds that they did not represent a real emergency. THE ITEMS which the state board approved in a reversal ol its previous action were $762.92 for repairs to a damaged voting machine, $1,10 for assessment supplies, $75 for furniture for the county assessor, $160 for furniture for the courthouse, and $30( in tax refunds, resulting from the discovery of some duplicate assessments on (he same property. The Pharos . Tribune recently pointed out in an editorial thai the state board apparently didn'l know what it was doing when il rejected the $130 item for assessment supplies since the board itself previously had instructed county officials to purchase those new assessment forms. THE ADDITIONAL appropriation requests submitted to the council Monday totaled $16,640.38, but the council trimmed these to $15,610.14 before approving them. The largest item was $14,507.14 taken from the cumulative bridge fund, $6,552 of it for the construction of a new Benner bridge and the other $7,955.14 for repair of the Beck bridge. The council allowed a'$500 transfer for county road signs, $193 for fox bounties, and a $50 transfer from county superintendent office supplies to the county attendance officer's salary. IT,CUT OUT $500 for repair of the courthouse and $130.24 for tax refunds, the latter item because the state board already had belatedly allowed it. It reduced the county agent's- request of $260 for furniture to $60 and his $500 request for wages of extra help to $300.
