6 THE JOPEKA DAILY STATE J OURNAL TUESDAY EVENING, APRIL 27, 1920 ON A CASH BASIS J. X. Atkinson Would Instill Business Ideas in State. , Accountant Dans to Ask Changes in Existing; Law. "WOULD MAKE FOR ECONOMY" ew Policy Will Apply to Print ing Plant Mree. Also Affect Penitentiary Make Departments Pay Bills. Placing of all state Institutions and departments on a. casn oasis is a plan being worked out by J. N. Atkinson, state accountant. He will doubtless ask for several changes in existing Ikws in order to carry out his program. The new policy will apply particularly to the state printing plant at Topeka and the state penitentiary at Lansing. At present the printing plant and stale prison coal mine are operated on the system of "everything going -out and nothing coming in." Every piece of printing costs the state plant mon ey, but the department using the work pays nothing. Every ton of coal pro duced at Lansing is charged against the prison fund, but the institution which receives the fuel pays nothing for it. 'Would Make for Economy. "There is obviously something wong with the present system," At kinson said today, "and it may if quire some new legislation to correct thi apparent evil. When a depart ment orders a thousand letterheads or a frw hundred circulars or printed copies of a speech, there should be a transfer of funds from the department crdoting the work to the printing j.mm. LTnder the present system ihe more work handled thru the state printing plant, the more rapidly it eats up its funds. Adoption of the policy of paying for the. service would have a tendency to conserve the paper sup- ply and to economize on many large or entirely unnecessary orders. "PracticaUy similar conditions exist at Lausing. The convicts are supplied with machinery purchased from the prison fund. The prison feeds and cl ti es the men. But when a ton or car of coat is produced, it is sent to ail institution, which makes no remit is nee. To Sock CliaiiRC In I .aw. "In the case of the state heating plain, it is very difficult to determine tbo cost of operation owing to the fu t thai, the fuel is supplied by the stale and no charge for this supply is maio RKair.st the plant fund. I want to 6 into a number of these matters and wii". no doubt make recommendations. t: t'ni. next legislature for change in tiio prrscnt law. Some sort of a cash batls must be established if th-i state is to know Just what ft really costs l. maintain several of the institutions and C partments." SAYS SEND BOYS TO FARM. v - -- w I nf (' trt KPIt lwmiiv v . . - Them from Fiicssciitial Trades. Declaring that the youth of the land nnift be "starved" from unessential industries offering exceptionally high jiav and turned into the channels of production. Di. Win. A. McKeever, of lwrence, told the industrial commit tee of the Chamber of Commerce to day. "The necessity of sending high school youths to spend the summer va cation on the farm is little less urgent today than it was during the rush of the war," McKeever said. "The food situation, as all know, is very tense, and the scarcity of farm help was per haps never greater during the century than it Is today. Therefore. I appeal to the Chamber of Commerce to ap peal to parents, school officials, and others concerned to send the largest Dossible ouota of their high school youths out for the summer to the food producing Industries. "Do not permit your half grown son to seek an easy place in the shade." MeKeevcr asserted, "a soft snap in doors, where there is good pay and little to do. He and you should both be ashamed of such retardation of his strength and such under-develppment of his integrity. Keep him away from tlw? automobile business for a season. Kvery time he goes by whizzing down the street during the working hours of the day. gaGding about from one lazy pastime to another whenever he is seen doing this, the ordinary citizen so observing him should think of both his weakness and yours." The industrial committee decided to investigate the situation. " FREE FAIR GRANDSTAND Association Asks for $70,000 to Build Concrete Stand. After several years of unusual suc cess and the total payment of indebt edness, the Kansas Free Fair in To peka comes out today in its first re quest for aid from the public in the erection of a steel and concrete grand stand, to be built in time for the ac-I commodation of the patrons in Sep- temper. At a meeting of the board of direc tors of the fair association Monday evening it was decided to raise $70,000 at once for this improvement at the grounds. Under the plan as outlined by Sec retary Phil Kastman. the new stand will seat more than 5,000 persons or 1.300 more than the present stand. The revenue from the stand will be used to pay up the 170,000 in bonds to be issued for the erection of the stand.

A glass of dirty water was placed on the desk of Judge Rad Lee in the court of Topeka this morning by Paul Edgar, assistant county attorney,' and introduced as evidence in the case against Frank Dcmboskl. proprietor of a soft drink parlor at 314 Kansas ave nue. He was charged with violating the pure food ordinance. George V. Denton, city food inspec tor, said Demboski kept a bucket of this water on the floor and dipped tumblers in it fter serving drinks in them. This was all the washing they got, he said. The case was continued until May 7 at the request of the de fense. To Rebuild Prairie Home Church.
