PRESIDENT TODD :— The next order of business is the Report of the Treasurer, Mr. Barron Collier, of the Barron G. Collier Company. It may be of interest to the Association membership to know that our Treasurer, Mr. Collier, is today being installed as a Deputy Police Commissioner of the City of New York so that he cannot be with us, and in his place Mr. E. C. Faber will read his report.

(Mr. Faber presented the report.)


To the American Electric Railway Association:

GENTLEMEN: In accordance with provisions of the Constitution, I wish to present herewith to you the annual report of your Treasurer.

The Constitution provides that the Treasurer shall be responsible under the direction of the President and the Executive Committee of all funds of the Association, and shall disburse these funds in accordance with a prescribed method. I am very glad to report that the finances of the Association are in excellent condition.

An audit of the Association's accounts has been made by certified public accountants engaged by the Auditing Committee and I beg leave to submit herewith their latest report for the nine months of the Association year, ending July 31st, 1922. At that time the cash net bank balance was $55,056.

The total receipts for this period amounted to $173,219.00, of which $142,654.00 were for dues. The corresponding expenditures for this period were $104,951.00 making the net income $68,267.00. Adding this to the surplus existing November ist, 1921 of $2,372.00, there was available on July 31, 1922, a surplus of $70,640.00.

Owing to the fact that the Association year, however, does not end until October 31st, it is not possible to present a financial report for the year. We have secured, however, an audited cash bank balance of our account up to September 30th, 1922, and the amount of this balance is $77,038.01.

I wish to call your attention, however, to the fact that the major portion of the Association's expenditures result from the holding of the Convention and Exhibit. As a result the principal bills of which the Association will yet be called upon to meet have not as yet been received. In other words, while our cash balance reflects a very gratifying condition of our treasury it represents practically the total available income which the Association will enjoy for the remainder of the Association year. Out of this must come whatever expense there shall be over and above the income derived from sale of space accruing from the holding of the Convention and the putting on of the Exhibit by the manufacturers, leaving a substantial balance in the treasury.

Following the custom in the past the final audited report for the twelve-month period ending October 31st will be published in complete detail in the Proceedings of the Association.*

Respectfully submitted,



* See appen dix to Treasurer's report.
