And to assist you in <br />knowing what the duties will be when the Court work is no longer the responsibility of the Clerk <br />we are attaching a photostat copy of the duties as listed in Burns Statutes. <br />The above recommendation is made after review and study by our Executive Committee and Board of <br />Directors. <br />Respectfully submitted, <br />enc.: salaries of officials 1960 -1971 /s/ Keith J.
