PAGE FOUR "i V 'S 1 V kVJ' EMBEZZLER GETS FIVE-TEAR TERM IN PENITENTIARY Harry Nail Sentenced for School Thefts at Woolstock. Harry Nail, who was arrested here in February to answer grand jury charges at Clarion that he had embezzled funds belonging to the Woolstock independent school district, has begun serving a five year penitentiary sentence at Fort Madison. Nail had lived here six or seven months. He had a family and some children. He came here from Woolstock, but had not tried to conceal his removal to Algona. The Wright county authorities knew where to find him when he was wanted. Nail pleaded guilty to a shortage of more than $500. He made a written confession and listed nearly 60 warrants totaling $644.25, admitting that he had used the money for his own purposes. Judge Scores Board. Nail was sentenced by Judge T. G. Garfield who expressed amazement at loose methods of administration by the Woolstock school board and in view of Nail's confession said that members of the board ought also to be in court. The Clarion Monitor, which last week published an editorial to the same effect, said that public opinion at Woolstock accords with the judge's opinion. For some reason undisclosed there has apparently been no effort to convict anyone except Nail. The Monitor charged that this was the second or third; case in Wright county where "whitewash has been applied without the semblance of a court trial. The whole case seems to be powerful argument for publicatio of proceedings by school boards a bill for which failed in the re cent general assembly. What Nail Confessed. Nail said in his confession tha the board authorized him to sig warrants without first submittin bills to the board and getting a formal order for payment. Some times some bills were discussec SorojJty Observes Founder's Day— The annual Founder's day banquet of the Beta Sigma Phi sorority took place last night at the Cpunitry club clubhouse. A formal dinner was served at 7:30 to the 21 members of the 'local club, the husbands, and friends. The sorority colors, black and gold, predominated, and the gues-ts were seated at a long table with a centerpiece of yellow roses. A written message from Mr. Ross, founder of Beta Sigma Phi, was read by Buena Raney, retiring president. A Toast to the Pledges was given by Mrs. Kenneth Knudson, and the Pledges' Response was given by Esther Pratt. Mrs. Donald Miller and Mrs. Bob Williams sang a duet, and Mrs. D. P. Smith gave a toast to the charter members. A surprise toast to a June bride-to-be, Deane Afndorfer, was given by Bea Hanson. The program was followed by dancing. News of Catholic Daughters— The Algona Court of the Catholic Daughters entertained the Wesley court at pot-luck supper at special meetings, but as a rule the board never tion. took official ac Methods of accounting were slip shod. Board proceedings were no. entered in a minute book, am claims were paid without verifiec statements. Neither the secretary nor the treasurer was required to furnish bonds, though state auditors had called the board's attention to its duty to require bonds. At the annual meeting of the board Nail would submit an annual report of "summarized" penses. "While there records were open to the inspection of members of the board," he said, "So far as I know my records were never examined." Beer Parties Paid For. Nail, who had been secretary some 25 years, said that after annual board meetings it was the custom to adjourn to the janitor's home for a beer and lunch party. On three occasions the beer aiid lunch were paid for with school district warrants. This was done on order of the board. At such a party in July, 1936, a fictitious sales ticket was made out for school supplies, and the party was paid for in that way. In the case of another patry in July, 1937, a fictitious bill for expenses incurred on a supposed trip to Clarion, Eagle Grove, and Webster City on alleged school business was paid in the same way. Hoard .HeinlMjr Gets $5. Nail said he began to embezzle school fundk in February, 1936, but the first embezzlement was not for himself. A man who had been on the school board 15 or 20 years came to him and, alleging a shortage of personal funds, asked for a small warrant. Nail gave him one for $5, supposedly as payment for official services, though there was no provision for payment for •'the services of board members. Nail's own salary was $75 for the year ending July, 1937, and t 80 for the following year. A Woolstock teacher who wanted release from he r contract paid $50 for it, and Nail converted part of the money. He also converted $40 paid in tuition money, but said that an unidentified party got part of it. . _ So far as the local sheriff's office knows, Nail had no employment while he was living here.
