Drive Safely NEW YORK (AP) - City Comptroller Harrison Goldin says a 1972 audit shows that nearly $4 million worth of highly negotiable bonds were missing when Mayor Abraham Beame held the job. Goldin, Beame’s successor, made the audit public for the first time Monday, one day after he disclosed that his own contracted audit revealed a total of $5.4 million in securities were not presently in the steel-lined. time-locked city vault although they were still on the ledgers. The securities could have been stolen, the audit reported, or the whole mystery could simply be the result of a massive bookkeeping error. Goldin did not accuse Beame, a fellow Democrat, of any impropriety. “These audits speak to the status of the records, assets and procedures which I inherited Jan. I,” Goldin said. A spokesman for Mayor Beame confirmed the 1972 audit showing that $3.95 million of securities could not be accounted for, but he said “a reconciliation of these figures had been made.” The same assertion was made Youth Returns, Quickly Jailed SAN JUAN, P.
