LINCOLN. Nov. 8. (Special.) The two
members of the state board of control
who visited the Kearney hospital for
tubercular patients have returned and
this morning George Weldenfleld, bok
keeper for the board, went to Kearney
to check up the books of the institution,
which, to use an expression of the board,
have been kept In a very "childish"
The board Is of the opinion that the
superintendent, K. R. Vander Slice, has
not wilfully been dishonest, but has ap
propriated the funds from one source
In order to apply them in another where
the deficiency was needed.
Cheeks On Account
It appears that the superintendent was
lit the habit of taking warrants made
out to employes and signing their names
to them with his own underneath and
depositing them In the bank, where he
had his own private account lie then
drew checks for a smaller amount for
the payment of the employe. He gives
as his reason for doing so that the board
of control only allowed a stated sum
for the payment of employes. He needed
additional help and so he took the dif
ference between what the warrant was
made out for and the amount the em
ploye received and applied It In employ
lug more help.
To Keep Ills Farmer
la one Instance, that of the institution
farmer, the board cut the pay of that'
Individual from $45 a month to HO to
correspond to the salary received by
farmers of other institutions of the state.
Van Slice was afraid that he would lose
his farmer and so he cut the warrant
of another employe five dollars and ap
pted It on the salary of the farmer. In
other Instances he hired help, applying
the same methods In order to get the
neegsary funds. The whole transactions
would amount to about $36 a month and
' will probably run about three months.
Hall Starts New Plan
State Treasurer George Hall, will in
the future lay down a new rule which
will make a like arrangement Impossible
upless the employe enters into the ar
rangement. He will require that every
person receiving money from the state
shall make out a voucher. In the past
it has been the custom for the pay roll
of the Institutions to be sent to Lincoln
and the warrants are drawn to each in'
