Audit on Institute is Reported An audit report on the Mental Health Institute at Cherokee for the year ended June 30, 1973, was released Wednesday by State Auditor Lloyd R. Smith. The institute provided services to an average daily population of 283 at an average annual cost of $14,491.70 per patient. This compares with prior years as follows: (Year, average number of employees, average daily population, average cost per patient per year) 1965, 513, 545, $5,023.42. 1966, 450,496,$5,904.50. 1967, 440, 409, $7,358.07. 1968, 453, 362, $8,955.56. 1969,433,312, $10,301.77. 1970,420, 294, $12,036.33. 1971,432, 274, $13,072.73. 1972, 421, 282, $13,379.67. 1973, 439,283, $14,491.70.

Receipts used by the Institution were not properly prenumbered, and it was recommended that prenumbered receipts be used for all funds. 2. Cash boxes were readily accessible to unauthorized personnel, and it was recommended that all boxes be locked and keys be safeguarded. 3. The institute has made a practice of reimbursing prospective employees who come for job interviews. Smith requested that the Department of Social Services review this practice and cite the statutory authority for these reimbursements. A copy of Smith's report is on file in the office of the auditor of state. Thorpe Family Hosts Visitor CARNARVON — Denzel Thorpe of near Nemaha was a caller in the Roland Thorpe home here Friday.'

Iowa Bookshelf The Crime of Our Citi Edited oy Mary Ann Riley JERRY FORD, UP CLOSE. By Bud Vestal. (Coward, McCann & Geoghegan, $7.95) Called an "investigative biography", this book contains a bit more information about Vice-President Ford than has been noted in the daily paper. Furthermore, the information is quite thorough and between covers; that's a help to those wishing to own a biography of the man who, currently, is "only a heart-beat away from the Presidency." This book certainly enforces the general public feeling that Jerry Ford is decent, well-meaning, loves people and has a mind of his own. His long and successful, if not particularly glamorous, career as Michigan's 5th district representative in the U. S. House is well told. He never sang for the job of president; his highest ambition, never realized, was to become Speaker of the House. Some items about him not generally known include: he's much bigger physically than he looks on TV; 6 feet, 1 inch tall and weighs 200 pounds. He married a divorced woman—if that adds up to any eyebrow lifting these days. At one time in the distant past he earned some money modeling for the Conover Agency—a ski picture. He endured. somewhat naively, according to this book, a friendly association with an influence-peddler named Winter-Berger who' later wrote an expose called "Washington Pay-Off." And here's one for the graffiti-lovers; Jerry Ford likes catsup on cottage cheese. — Kelly Adrian. THE ISLANDS. By Stan Steiner. (Harper & Row, $12.50) This compassionate recounting of the history, cultural decay and economic disaster of Puerto Rico was written by the author who produced the exceptional "La Raza: The Mexican Americans"; and both books are studies of the exploitation of a people and their struggle against invasion, suppression and the new 20th century kind of ruin, corporation colonialism. The author traces the long degradation of the islanders from a happy peak of original Indian through succeeding periods of Spanish, French and British occupation and down to the present era of domination by foreign investment and tourist-commercialism. The land is long gone and the people, primarily agrarian, have no economic or cultural place in the current scheme of things, says Mr. Steiner.

"They may as well stay in Miami", said one native. During the post-World War II years, Puerto Ricans were welcome on the mainland because of a booming U.S. economy; but as the economy cooled, so did the welcome. They are now relegated to the human ash-heaps of city slums or migrant farm-workers camps, along with other unloved minorities. Unwanted at home and unwanted anywhere else, many people turned to revolution. The answer to their collective plight is in the future. The sun's density is a little higher than that of water.
