AUDIT REPORT MENTIONED IN CERTIFICATE OF 1st OCTOBER, 1954



The total of the balances of individual depositors accounts exceeds the balance of the
Depositors account by $164.13, a discrepancy which the Treasurer is attempting to locate.

2. The net Appreciation of investments during the year is $7,321.76 comprising a genuine
Appreciation of $7,321.78 less a sum of $0.02 Depreciation undershown in 1952, which sum has been
incorrectly included in the Reserve Account instead of in the Investment Adjustment Account in these
statements.

3. As the Reserve Account, due to Depreciation of Investments in recent years, shows a
debit balance, the term Reserve Account used in the Balance Sheet tends to give a wrong impression
and it has been suggested that in future years the word Deficit be used.
