-Following suggestions made at
the recent meeting of county
school officers, Mrs. Mary L. Ful
kerson, superintendent, will to
day notify all districts that a text
book exchange will be operative
in her office Immediately, pure
ly as a matter of convenience to
districts and withoci charge. -
""The superintendent's office
makes no guarantee to sell books;
we are doing this simply as ac
commodation to districts In line
with the recent suggestion", Mrs.n
Districts which have a surplus
of books will be able, if they so
desire, to bring them to the eoun
ty school superintendent's office,
where they will be available to
any district -which wishes to buy
them. A uniform price for all
books so handled has been estab
lished as follows:
Books labeled but not used, 90
percent of list price.
Books used hut in very good
condition. 75 per cent list price.
Books with good covers, but
just ordinary second-hand books,
50 per cent of list price.
Books less usable, 25 per cent
of list price.
Only textbooks that are used In
the schools under the official ad
options will he handled.
At the recent meeting, some
school officers said they owned
more textbooks than, they could
use, and declared a clearing
house for selling and purchasing
ot those each district was short or
long on would be beneficial.
Archerd Company Assets
, Suffer Much Shrinkage;
Grand Jury Probe Plan
According to the preliminary
report of the' receiver for the
Charles R. Archerd Implement
company, H. O. White, a shrink
age of $55,504.44 Is anticipated
on book assets ot $129,395.31.
The deficit between the book
assets and the liabilities Is $7-
832.3; but since the book assets
are subject to such shrinkage the
total deficiency Is reported at
$77,672.12. The net free assets
for unsecured creditors with
claims of $31,544.77 are only
$4,262.02 after the estimated
shrinkage is deducted.
There Is the possibility that
many of the secured creditors
will find their security inade
quate and will come back as gen
eral claimants for the deficiency.
A large liability Is the item for
shortage of grain and seed. This
Is estimated at $19,420.56 after
realization from the surety com
panies on bonds . ef the ware
house. The holders of warehouse
receipts win be general claimants
also for the portion not covered
by the surety company protec
tion. The statement which was pre
pared by Lester Barr.. accountant
for the receiver, follows. A copy
of the statement will be filed to
day with the circuit court and a
copy with notice to file claims
will be mailed immediately to all
