the part of the great state of Iowa to repudiate a transaction that was entered into in good faith and was legal in every aspect Had Legal Advise The treasurer based his opinion on legal advice he said he had ob tained which gave the state no more right to refund the warrants than the Beh company the opportunity to deny the warrant purchase if the transaction had proved to be a bad investment

opinion nor had I asked for one Wegman said The opinion in question was ad dressed to Gov Clyde L Herring and was delivered me by the governor after the council meeting Would Have Approved The statement that the council would have approved a refunding issue if such approval had been sought by the treasury is guess work The council in the main took the stand that the warrant sale is a closed

signed by the governor Motion Lacks Second Wegman told Storms that the treasurer was running the treasury department and that the same op portunity in the auditors office was offered to Storms The motion died for want of a second after an opinion from Attorney General Ed ward L OConnor supported Weg mans position The authority for originating action towards refunding of war rants issued under the Brookhart Lovrien act is vested in the treas urer of state under the acts of the fortysixth general assembly Weg man said today The treasurer reiterates that there is to be no refunding Recorder
