Uneven Steal a Cedar Tree From Geo. Hackman Lot Irvington:' Mr. and Mrs. George Hackman are very indignant over the fact that some one entered their woodlot just north of their home on highway 169 and dug up a red cedar tree between four and five feet tall. This tree can easily be seen from the highway and It was because of its beauty that the Hack- mans desired to let the tree grow. Mr. and Mrs. Carl Brown, living directly across from this place noticed a car stop about dusk one evening and two men alighted from the car and went into the woods where the tree was growing. However, when they returned It was somewhat later and because of the darkness they could not distinguish what they were carrying. Needles* to say the Hackmans would be very glad for any clue that would lead to the guilty parties. Minister Says Unity Hope of America Rev E. W.

TUESDAY. MAY 17. Kijrlit Popes VOL. :V7.—NO. 20 State Auditor Gives Nine Reasons for Algona Audit "Blue Ribbon" Bargains, 26th Says Completed Reports, Heady Soon, Will Tell Why Time Necessary MUST CHECK TO SEE LAW COMPLIED WITH State Auditor C. W. Storms made public today a nine-point statement in answer to criticism from Mayor C. F. Specht of Algona for the length of time state auditors put In on auditing the city books. Mr. Storms' reply on the criticism follows: We want to make several points clear: 1. The examiner is employed for his ability to perform a highly specialised service. He has had a great deal of training and practical experience and his opinion as to what auditing work must be done to adequately safeguard public monies must prevail over that expressed by the officials whose records and.accounts are being audited. 2. Our records Indicate no present or ultimate shortage of work for our present employees. Therefore, there can be no tendency to prolong work in a particular locality. Neither have we received any complaint to the effect that the examiners were not diligently nt work during regular hours. 3. This office does not ask or expect its auditors to drop their work on an audit before Its completion In order to satisfy the officials whose records are being audited, as the newspaper article in question asserts. Neither does it believe that it behooves public officials to enter such requests. If officials whose records are under audit would be permitted to control audit costs or audit work they would, in effect, be permitted to make the audit so ineffective as to be almost totally worthless. The supervisors happened to be in Algona the day before the examiners left simply because they wanted to review the situation before the examiners moved to another local- corn. ment. 4. A very apt discussion of the •character of the city's records, which will appear in the completed report, explains why a great deal of the time spent In auditing the records was necessary. 5. If repeated recommendations of previous auditors had been followed, most. If not all, of the increased audit cost complained of could have been averted. 6. The examiners' salaries cited In the newspaper article are Incorrect. 7. The audit covers a period of nearly two years (twenty-three months to be exact), rather than just one year. During that time, cash disbursements amounted to approximately $297,000.00 and additional amounts aggregating about $170.000.00 were transferred between funds. The audit covered, as only a part of its scope, operations of such major enterprises as the light, and power plant, the water plant, and the swimming pool. Studied in this light, the expenditure of approximately $500.00 per year to make available to the public, through the medium of a completely independent audit report, an account of the city's revenues and expenditures, does not seem to deserve i great deal of condemnation, even though, as previously stated, much' of the co^t could have been avert- eu had previous auditor's recommendations been followed. 8. The need for increasing auditing diligence is amply demonstrated by the discovery of at least sixteen major shortages in the 105 cities whose accounts are audited, nlnce the beginning of our administration. 9. The duties of the State Auditor are clearly described in the law. A complete examination of the accounts of each city is to be made under his supervision. Inquiry as to whether the laws are being complied with Is also mandatory. These examinations are being made as required by law. The state auditor added that relationships of his office and local officials have, on the whole, been very cordial, and that full cooperation has offered mutual advantages to the officers concerned, and have been a distinct protection to the public. The state's audit report of the City of Algona will be forthcoming in a short time, and Mr. Storms added that he hoped it would prove beneficial to all concerned.

FUND AVAILABLE TO CONSERVATION Pittman-iRobertJBon Act Would Provide Million; la. Share $60 $80,000 An item of particular interest to sportsmen and conservationists is the announcement that on Monday, May 9, the Agricultural Appropriation Bill which includes an item of one million dollars for putting into operation the Pittmnn- Robertson Act, passed the U. S. Senate unanimously. The bill now goes to joint conference and conservationists are hopeful of its enactment. The proposal Is to inaugurate the administration of the Pittman-Robertson Act on or about July 1, 1938. By way of explanation, the Pittman-Robertson Act enacted last year was a law sponsored by tho newly organized General Wildlife Federation. For many years there has been a federal tax on guns, ammunition and sporting equipment, which tax went into the general fund of the U. S. government. Conservationists took the view that this money should be particularly earmarked and used for con- th« use of this equipment. The law provides that the money received from this tax may be and will be allocated back to the states in a manner similar to the administration of the law with reference to the construction of highways. The distribution will be based up on territory and also upon the number of fishing and hunting licenses sold In the respective states. Of course the state will have to appropriate a certain per cont ns is done in the matter of highway construction and it Is estimated that the operation and administration of this law will bring Into the state of Iowa between sixty and eighty thousand dollars per year for the restoration and preservation of wildlife and for conservation purposes generally. This project Is the direct result of the work of the Wildlife Federation and reperesents its first major achievement. Incidentally, this is the first time that the federal government has ever assumed nn\ share of Its responsibility toward Etate conservation problems.
