To the President of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Repre
sentatives of the Twentieth General Assembly:
Your joint committee, appointed to visit the State Normal School at Cedar Falls, have performed that duty, and beg leave to report as follows:
We were cordially received by the Principal, J. C. Gilchrist, and other officials, and by them shown over the building and grounds, and accorded free access to the books and accounts and the departments of the Institution.
We made thorough examination of the educational and boarding departments, and found them in a gratifying condition.
Your committee find that while the funds have not been applied to the specific purposes for which they were appropriated, as will be seen in a subsequent part of this report, we are of the opinion that they have been wisely and economically expended.
Your committee would report that there was appropriated by the last General Assembly the sum of fifteen thousand five hundred dollars ($15,500) for the payment of teachers' salaries, that there was paid out for that purpose to June 30, 1883, the sum of fifteen thousand nine bundred and sixty-nine dollars and eighty-four ($15,969.84), being in excess of the appropriation four hundred and sixty-nine dollars and eighty-four cents.
Your committee would commend the Trustees and Steward for their economical management of the finances of the Institution, but find that they have incurred an indebtedness contrary to the provisions of chapter sixty-seven (67) of the acts of the Seventeenth General Assembly.
Your committee find that there has been the sum of six hundred
and twenty-eight dollars and five Ccents ($628.05) diverted from library and apparatus fund to building fund.
