State Treasurer Gregory Hatcher.
Hatcher in a statement Saturday
declared an opinion of the Attorney
Generals’ Department to be without
foundation in law, and charged State
Auditor Moore Lynn with an attempt
to reflect on the Treasurer’s Depart-

The opinion under fire was recently
issued by the Attorney General’s De-

State Auditor and Efficiency Expert
for the purpose of determining the
proper procedure in transfers of se-
curities to and from the Treasurers’
office. The transfers are not being
made properly, the opinion indicated.
“The Attorney General’s Depart-,
ment has not stated the law.” de-
clared Hatcher. "The'State Auditor
and Efficiency Expert h*s not given
me co-operation or oJwwe. mg,,'.com-

always furnished any information de-

“It should be borne in mind that
the Statutes of'Texas, like the ‘Book
of Htily Writ,’ in bad hands, can be
used to prove or disprove any conten-

as much sense as a grass hopper, and
as much backbone as a jelly fish,
ought to know and be capable of in-
terpreting and carrying out the pur-
pose of the law, and that is what I
shall continue to do, and I welcome

only asking that the newspapers give
the public both sides of the question
presented in their columns.”
