laneous." In Part III. are shown all moueys expended for
purposes so far apart from the institution proper as to fall out-
side the uniform classifications. With two exceptions. Trustees'
expenses appear in the miscellaneous column under "mainte-
nance." These two exceptions are expenses for the Trustees of
the Training Schools and of the Trustees in charge of the State
sanatoria. Because of various duties these two Boards of
T^nistees have appropriations apart from the grants for their
institutions. Part III., in addition to these special outlays,
shows also the industries fimd administered by the Trustees
in charge of the State Farm. This fund is self-perpetuating,
and, though a State outlay, is so far separate as to require in-
dividual treatment in the classification. Part IV. summarizes
the whole.

The table shows that $1,635,236.60 was spent for mainte-
nance exclusive of expenditures for special purposes mentioned
in Part II., which amoimted to $275,447.61. By adding to
these amounts $139,662.88 for sundry expenditures, as shown
in Part III., we find a grand total of $2,050,347.09 expended
on account of the twelve institutions.

In addition to the total expenditures as indicated above, two
institutions — Lyman School and the Industrial School for
Girls — have private trust funds which are administered for
the benefit of inmates, but independently of the State's invest-
ment. The custody of each is vested in the State Treasurer,
whose duty it is to invest the same and to pay therefrom at the
request of the Trustees. Three of those trusts — the Lyman
fund, the Lyman Trust fund, and the Lamb fund — apply to
Lyman School, while the Fay, the Mary Lamb, and the Rogers
School funds pertain to the Industrial School for Girls. From
these sources a total of $1,492.68 was expended during the

year, of which $20.52 was for books out of the Rogers fund,
and the balance from the Lyman Trust and Mary Lamb funds.
The major part of the outlay was for entertainments, drill and
band equipment, athletic goods, lectures, prizes, and similar
miscellaneous items.

IV. Analysis op Maintenance and Net Per Capita.

The uniform analysis of maintenance expenditures comprises
eight classes of divisions namely, " salaries, wages, and labor ; "
" food ; " " clothing and clothing materials ; '' " furnishings ; "
" heat, light, and power ; '^ " repairs and improvements ; '^
" farm, stable, and grounds ; " and " miscellaneous." Table
VH. is correspondingly divided into eight parts, with a sum-
mary, and shows for each of the twelve institutions the total
cost of maintenance for each of the main headings in the
analysis. It further shows all receipts from sales or refunds;
the difference, which is the net cost to the institution ; and the
average net weekly per capita cost to the institution, with a
column showing the corresponding per capita for the three-
year period just ended.

V. COMPABISON OF ApPBOPBIATIONS AND ExPENDITUBES

THEBEFBOM.

Table VIII. affords comparison of appropriations for main-
tenance with the respective amounts expended therefrom.
Appropriations are classified as " receipts available for main-
tenance/' and " appropriations in addition to such receipts."
All receipts at the four sanatoria, the Hospital School, and the
Norfolk State Hospital, though turned, like receipts of all the
other institutions, into the State treasury, are by law applicable
to maintenance in the succeeding year. Receipts at the re-
maining institutions are not so applied. By this comparison
the total maintenance expenditures exceeded the total appro-
priations by $14,877.60, that amount representing the net
deficit. Balances covered back into the treasury from all the
several appropriations totalled $5,289.63. Inasmuch as this
sum by such reversion ceases to be available for institutional
purposes, the equivalent should be added to the deficiency just
stated in order to show the apparent deficit which must be met
by additional appropriations. This apparent deficit totals
$20,167.23. The heaviest deficit was incurred at the Westfield
State Sanatorium, where rapid expansion to meet the Trustees'
plan of making this a hospital for tuberculous children has
created unforeseen demands upon maintenance funds.

Receipts of 1912 available for maintenance in 1913 totalled
$155,227.05. This sum was received largely on account of
board of patients at the State sanatoria and the Hospital School.

VT. Appeopeiations for Special Purposes.
The total of appropriations for special purposes during 1913,
as shown by Table IX., was $316,307.89. In addition to this
amount, the several institutions began the year with a total of
$281,728.88 unexpended balance on previous special appro-
priations. The grand totdl available for 1913 was, therefore,
$598,036.77. The amount expended from this total was $275,-
447.61, leaving an unexpended balance of $322,589.16, of which
$320,153.91 will be available in 1914. The small remainder
of $2,435.25 reverts to the State treasury.

VII. Net Cost to the Commonwealth.
The net cost to the State of maintaining or conducting each
institution is the difference between total expenditure and the
total receipts from all sources other than the State treasury.
This total outlay must cover all moneys spent for maintenance
and special jpurposes, together with all expenditures for sundry
purposes apart from the institution, and interest on outstanding
bonds. These items are compared in Table X. For con-
venience, the daily average number of inmates and the net
weekly per capita cost to the State are added. This tabulation
shows a daily average number of inmates of 7,016.35, and
expenditures for all purposes of $2,123,562.24. Total receipts
from institutions, i.e., sources other than the State treasury,
amounted to $196,399.65. The net cost to the State for all
twelve institutions amounted to $1,927,162.59, making the net
weekly per capita cost to the State $5,267.

86 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17.

VIII. Analysis of Pay Roll.
Table XI., divided into six parts, shows a comparative analy-
sis of the pay roll for each of the twelve institutions. The first
five parts divide service into five classes, namely, " general ad-
ministration,'' "medical service," "ward service," "repairs
and improvements," and " farm, stable, and grounds." Part
six summarizes the whole. The table also shows the full roster,
that is, the number of employees deemed necessary to carry on
the institution efficiently, and in an opposite column the daily
average number employed, with the same average for the three-
year period ending November 30, 1912. The same treatment
is given the average monthly compensation and the weekly per
capita cost. Thus it appears that the full roster for all the
institutions together was 1,280. The total average number
employed was 1,225.5, while for the three-year period preced-
ing 1913 it was 1,097.22. The total average monthly compen-
sation paid was $534,723 as against $502,263 in the preceding
three-year period. Miscellaneous and incidental employment
not entered upon the pay rolls of the institutions does not ap-
pear in this tabulation. The number of inmates to one em-
ployee remains about as before.

IX. Average Prices paid for Food.
As a part of the Board's supervision of fiscal administration,
all expense bills for each institution are analyzed and a schedule
made therefrom, showing a comparison of prices paid by each
institution for commodities purchased. Table XII. shows in
convenient form the average price for 1913, and for the three-
year period ending November 30, 1913, of each of the several
staple articles of food.
