THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: JANUARY 21, 1917. 3 A Nebraska CONTROL BOARD ASDH6F0R MORE Two H.indred Thousand Dol lars Additional Sought for State Institutions. SOME DEFICIENCIES RESUL (From a Staff Correspondent.) , Lincoln. Jan. 20. (Special.) 'The closest scrutiny of our expenditures will show there have been no extrava gances." declare Judge Kennedy and cx-Governor Silas Holcomb, members of the Board of Control. The board had raised criticism in certain quar ters in asking the legislature for $200,- UW more appropriations than two 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 ury. The legislature divides the ap propriation into funds, and each item must he taken from that particular fund. There is no lump sum to draw from. It is pointed out that the deficiency four years ago was $100,000 and two years ago $75,000. To offset the last deficiency $89,400 in other .funds re mained untouched. In spite of the increased cost of maintaining the 4.0C0 or so inmates, which increased in number 10 per cent in 1915 over 1913, on account of war conditions, the two appropria tions of those respective years were about the same, $2,087,000, according to the board's figures. One itc,m in the deficiency list is $625. salary for the first quarter of C. O. Martz of Seward, consulting engineer, employed to look after ef ficiency in managing the lighting and ' heating plants of the institutions and the wiring and plumbing and sewer age.

It maintains electric plants at the penitentiary to supply the capitol, the prison, the orthopedic hospital, the governor's mansion, the hospital for the insane and the home for de pendent children, and has similar plants in Hastings, Omaha', Norfolk, Grand Island and Beatrice.
