Director Campbell insisted, however, that the bill was not specillcal- ly listed. Mayor Younkin recalled that the published legal advertisement carried the names of the county commissioners, Board of Education and Council, declaring: "If there had been any question on the part of the School Board then that was the time to have made an objection." Direcor Campbell denied he had ever seen the legal notice and went on to say that he had "never objected and still want to pay the bill but I'm only one of the board." Director Strawn said the committee did not complete its prescribed duties when it neglected to make a recommendation, adding that the report as adopted was conflicting. Ho said the committee "passed the buck." Director Campbell then reiterated that he's ready to vote "to pay the bill but we'll have to put it in the budget next year." Councilmen B. M. Swartzwelder and Clarence A. Port asked if there would be any necessity of further delay in paying the bill if the board was assured by Director Zollars that the item was listed in the budget, both pointing out that none questioned his integrity and honesty, whereupon the board committee chairman said that it "is not what he says but he'd have to show me it was in the budget." The Mayor said Director Zollars informed him the addrcssograph item had been covered under "capital outlay" although it was not recorded specifically. When Director Campbell tolc Council that the entire School Board personnel was in favor of paying the b i l l . Councilman Swartzwelder asked: "If all are in favor of it why didn't they pay for it?" The councilman then charged: "I don't think this is an oversight If the expenditure had been set up in the budget as the finance committee chairman says it was I fee the School Board should pay the bil now." Director Balsley, who had insisted the item was not in this year's budget asked: "Did the School Board ever order it bought?" When Councilman Swartzwelder replied there had been a gentleman'! agreement to that end, Directo: Campbell broke in to say that "it ha: to be on black and white to be bind Mayor Younkin informed th School Board committee that Coun cil had spent considerably more tha the directorate was boinc asked t pay for installation of the system adding that filing cabinets and th like had been installed without th board or commissioners being aske to pay a proportionate share. (When President Weihe spok about teaching Council a lesson i economy by withholding payment o the bill he said if Council, was no halted it would proceed to buy ftlin cabinets and what not and expec School Board to help pay for them The Mayor added that the WP/ project expired 'before the work wa completed and the city was com polled to finish the job, pointing ou however, that the School Board wa not asked to help share that ext: cost. In reply to a question by Directo Strawn to an Item of $1,000 for a addressojtraph as listed in the city report for 1937, It was pointed ou that the figure showed how much ha been appropriated for the machinery and that the additional expenditur required, also enumerated in th same report, was obtained from th city's contingent fund. (Last Mon day President Weihe had asked th committee to Bpecificially find 01 why the city's share was listed on] at $1,000 when the board was aske to pay $1,015.) City Clerk S. T.
