Seems to Be Bookkeeping Matter or Point of View— State Agencies, Governor Disagree on Whether Appropriations Spent or Not , By ©WIGHT MCCORMACK DES MOINES Wl-When is an earmarked; capital improvements appropriation spent and when Isn't it? The answer appears to be a matter of bookkeeping, and to some-exent the point of view. The question arises out of a recent comment by Gov. Herschel Loveless. He said the State Board of Regents, the State Board of Control and the State Conservation Commission have more than eight million dollars in unspent building funds. He indicated a belief the money should be reappropriated. The state comptroller's office said the total was about $9,200,000. The three agencies answered that the amount all ear-marked by previous legislatures and was now considerably less than that. They said, in effect, that the money was obligated for the most part in construction under way. or being held up for specific reasons. On the comptroller's books, funds are "unspent" until the money is actually paid out. Capital improvements appropriations have been under discussion as a« result of vetoes by Loveless of the 1^57 Legislature's tax program and of more than 15 million dollars in building fund measures. Special Session Also involved is the possibility of a special legislative session. The governor has said that the major reason for such a session would be to re-enact capital improvements measures "as need­ ed." When he wrote the vetoes he said he probably would call a special esssion for September. Recently he indicated any such session would be delayed beyond that time. The comptroller's figures, as oM July 13, showed the Board of Control had about $4,500,000 in unspent funds. But the board says it has about $215,000,* after copsideration is given to contracts being paid off now. The total for the Board of Regents, as given by the comptroller, was $3,500,000. The board said that as of July 18 it had $2,351,244, all either earmarked or being used. It added that several large projects are unavoidably delayed, but others are in progress and the Times Herald, Carroll, ' owt Friday, July 24, 1957 money is being droiWn upon from time to time. The Conservation Commission, according to the comptroller, had Sanatorium, $106,739. Fund Not Spent Half a million of the amount credited to SU1 has not been spent, the regents explained, because it is for a new Law Building, and an additional $350,000 is needed. The money will not be obligated until the total of $850,000 $1,200,000 to its credit. The com ,. ,, ., L nnn mission said litigation is holding j l^™"^ 1 * I^A^f rill 0 : 0 .? 0 up the use of much of the amount. The regents said its $2,351,244 includes; State University of Iowa, $1,00*5,399; State University of Iowa Hospitals, $130,000; Iowa State College, $625,672; Iowa State Teachers College, $101,500; Vinton Braille and Sight Saving School, $91,236; Council Bluffs School for was in one of the capital improvements measures which Loveless vetoed. Another $100,000 of the SUI total is for remodeling of vacated space. Much of this amount will be used to remodel the present Law Building when it is vacated. The total also includes $277,138 the Deaf, $290,697; and Oakdale for a turbogenerator. This has been ordered but payment awaits delivery and testing of the generator. Another $100,000 item Is for a. Laundry Building, now under construction. Payments are beirtg made as construction proceeds. The $130,000 for the SUI Hospitals is for a unit for emotionally disturbed and mentally retarded children. An additional amount of about $50,000 is needed, but the Iowa Legislative Interim Committee said recently it could not legally supply the amount. The $625,672 credited to ISC includes $500,000 for a Home Economics Buildmg addition now being built. Another $95,448 Is for sewage improvements, which are about completed, at which time that account will be closed. Fdr ISTC, the $101,500 total includes $97,500 for a campus Laboratory-School Field House, which is nearing completion. The Vinton institution's $91,236 is the balance of an appropriation for remodeling, after a series of small projects, most of which have been completed. The balance will be held for other repair jobs, as directed by the Legislature. The $290,697 credited to the Council Bluffs school includes $280,000 for a Primary School Building, which is well under construction. Nearing Completion For the Santorium, the $106,739 Install Real Marble fo Give Foyer Luxury Look An entrance foyer that is beginning to look rundown at the heel can be given a luxury touch with the installation of real marble. This is possible with a thin marble tile now on the market . . . half the thickness and half the weight of a regular marble slab. Over the floor, lay strips of the desired color hardwood, two inches wide and half-an-inch thick. The strips are laid so that squares are formed into which the tile will be set In place with mastic. How large the squares are will depend on what size marble tile you buy. They come in three sizes — 8 inches by 8 inches, 8 inches by 12 inches, and 12 inches by 12 inches. • For*' the best effects, contrast the tone of the wood with one of the 18 different marble colorings, a dark wood-light marble or light rooms and even living rooms with the outdoors. Newer, lighter and stronger materials have permitted the use of double-paneled glass in cold climates and the consequent elimination of drafts and heat losses.
