Clyde to express their views. r All six juvenile Judges were In Salt Lake City Thursday and Friday conferring with I welfare commissioners about the proposed change. Commissioners were studying the plan with the judges to see if it is advisable from their point of Tview and if they foresee any problems which might arise. i- The three part-time judges questioned whether Jt would be practical to have full-time judges, who wouldtravel over considerably larger districts than at present When Miss Lucy Rigby, Immigration Service attorney, called the roll at Thurs-- day's naturalization ceremonies In the City-County Building, all 180 candidates for citizenship smiled. - Miss Rigby, that amazing lady, read . all the names without making n single' mistake.

The state office said they repeatedly were unable to contact anyone in the city office,-Charles H. Foote, budget director and special assistant to the mayor, said one of the major phases of the investigation would be to determine all property and equipment purchased by the CD office since May of I960. ' Mr. Foote said that Mr. Smith is in California for an operation and that preliminary Investigation failed to show whether oc not the office keeps an up-todate inventory or file of equipment purchased. Because the CD office is able to purchase many surplus items and other property, for as little as two cents, on the dollar, purchases have been made through that office for other city departments, including the finance department and City Cemetery, Mr. Foote said. However, he said apparently no' records of property transferred to other departments have been kept Mr. Foote was critical of lack' of organization of the office in his initial Investigation', Including storage of equipment purchased, lack of proper record-keeping, lack of organization and inability to locate some items of equipment which have been purchased, Budge Appoints Claims Assistant Appointment of Don L. Bybee as an assistant attorney general and claims officer for the State Highway Department was announced Friday by Atty. Gen. Walter L. Budge. Mr. Bybee, now an adjudicator for theU.S. Veterans Administration, Monday will succeed Robert C. Gibson, who resigned to take another position. n ix Vi ? 6 Sit Mfe'k..
