Comments On The Audit Of The Books For The Year Ended
December, 31, 1918

Exhibit A, Schedule No. 6, shows the Cost of Publications sold. The overhead this year is $11,852.64 and 5.45 per cent should be added to the cost to include these items.

Notwithstanding a marked reduction in the value of the inventory and a charging off such an amount as will bring the value of investments (bonds) on the book at the market value the Net Profits for the year is $53,121.35.

There has also been charged into this year's expenses, cost of books, etc., sold during the year ended December 31, 1917, to the amount of $2,359.81, which makes the Net Profit for this year just that much less.

Heretofore all receipts from Dues, Advertisements and Subscriptions have been taken up as an earning for the year in which they were received. This year, however, there has been taken up as an earning only those items that have actually been earned during the year and all items paid in advance have been carried as a payment in advance, for details see Exhibit A, Schedule No. 5.

Our examination has been very carefully made and no discrepancies or inaccuracies were disclosed. The records, books, accounts, etc., were found to be in good condition and worthy of commendation.
