COUNTY LOSES INTEREST FUND FOR NOVEMBER State Orders Earned Income Diverted to Pay MEANS LOSS OF $12,000 County Has Already Contributed Interest for the Last Three Months. Scott county taxpayer having contributed the earned interest on their public funds for the months of August, September and October, amounting to $9,603.18, toward paying "the other fellow's" losses in bank failures, will have the pleasure of donating the November interest,' according to word received here today by County Treasurer J. Frank Reddy. The order, diverting the earned interest for November to the state sinking fund created by the Brook-hart-Lovrein law enacted by the last general assembly, was issued by State Treasurer Ray Johnson, and is the. third consecutive call issued since the law went into force on April 1 last. n The four-months levy upon Scott county will total close to $12,000, according to the county treasurer, and will be equivalent to approximately one-half a mill in the tax "The calls received so far for di verting interest earned on public ! funds means that 50 per cent of the i county's interest money will be di- verted to the state since the law became effective," County Treasurer Reddy said. The call applies to all public funds on deposit within the county wlth the exception ot funds belonging to the city of Davenport. All other funds including county funds, city and towns and rural school districts, townships and towns will be levied upon to pay losses sustained by cities, towns and counties having funds on deposit in banks forced to closed their doors.
