the state charged was used in the Lindbergh kidnap ladder was not noted by him to be missing when he investi gated a leak in August 1934 Gustave Miller the plumber said he examined the attic at that time for six or seven minutes and could remember no boards missing The state had produced testi mony that after Hauptmanns ar rest police found a board missing from the attic and that an upright from the kidnap ladder fitted into the vacant space jibing with it even to the nail holes and the slant of the nails Supported by Expert This evidence was further sup ported by a wood expert who said the grain of the ladder upright matched that of a section from which the missing floorboard had been sawed Baby Charles A Lindbergh Jr was kidnaped and slain on March 1 1932 The states contention is that the floorboacj was torn up before thattime for use in the ladder which was left near the scene of the crime Did you look at the boards Ed ward J Reilly defense chief asked Miller I looked at them

Treasurer Leo J Wegman in a signed article in The Northwest ern Banker In his exposition the state treas urer explains in detail the method of financing the benefits to be de rived from such issues of warrants and relates the history of the most recent issue of to the Carleton D Bah company of Dea Moines The first issue of sinking fund warrants was authorized on May 2 192 and since then a total of 030000 has been issued in addition to in refunding warrants the state treasurer says Cites Various Issues Wegman cites various issues ex plaining their maturities and notes tie warrants were not only sold privately but in many instances the records will show that banks with whom the office of the treasurer of state conducted its business were almost forced to take these war rants from the treasurer Of another series Wegman says It is interesting to note that of the million dollars of warrants offered on Oct 1 1932 of them matured in the bands of the treas urer uncalled for and unsold This was the main reason why our office was able to pay the balance of this issue and interest at its maturity without default The approval of the executive council for the most recent issue sold to the Beh company a subject of controversy which threatened to split the council at one time is de scribed bv the treasurer All but Not Part After relating the receipt by him of an application from the Beh company for all but not any part of the issue Wegman says the warrants were sold to Beh in strict conformity with the statute and ic form identical to applications made on previous issues by prospective purchasers This application was nade with full knowledge consent and approval of the executive coun cil as a whole in harmony with the law that governs this matter and n keeping wilh past precedents ong established The financing method of anticip atory warrants is cited by the ireasurer as beneficial to county town and school districts for pay ment of expense after public funds I Turn
