years ago for the maintenance of the
fifteen state institutions.
The board is also asking $46,000
for a deficiency appropriation, which
it declares is more than met by other
funds which will lapse into the treas

propriation into funds, and each item
must he taken from that particular
fund. There is no lump sum to draw

years ago $75,000. To offset the last
deficiency $89,400 in other .funds re

stand in the tanks of the pros and
cons. At the present time there is
ito ordinance on the hooks prohibit

is not known just how the council
stands on the proposition, although
two members to date have made put

an ordinance of a restraining charac-
