According to all ethics that budget

newspaper until Comptroller Trager
had reported it to the city council
Thursday afternoon, but the Tribune
printed it Thursday morning.
Trager immediately began a still
hunt for the man who had tufne
over a copy of the budget to the Trib

because they do work cheaply by
means of an open ship, were called
to account for it.
There was much wrangling; Then
the Hartman officials passed the buck
to a city employe, Troyer by name,
and said this man had taken the re
port to the Tribune office. He also
said the man had been discharged.
