Figures ucd to-day by tho witness ran Into "billions of dollars," he test'fled that one of tho first nets of Chairman rayne when he discovered tho condition of affairs, was to go to the secretary of tho treasury nnd secure from him the services of Alonzo Twcednlo whom he mado treasurer of the hoard. This was dono about August, 1919, and he testi fied that among other conditions dls- closed by following. the new treasurer wero the NO BALANCE SHEET "There was no balance sheetshowlng what funds the board possessed or In what banks its funds were deposited.
