GIhb Is Questioned
On Relief Reports

(Continued from Page 1) ,

swering directly to Prosecutor Rapp's
questions, Gibb revealed that he had1
never given receipts to the townships
for their relief checks, believing that
the cancelled checks were sufficient
receipt. B-ut when Rapp referred to
the cancelled checks totalling the $5,-
547.52 that Gibb is charged with em-
bezzling, the former county clerk was
unable to say what happdened to the
money on those checks.
"Probably it's still in the county
funds," he said. "I don't know."
To several other questions by Rapp,
he resorted to "I don't know" or "I
can't account for that" as his only
answer. When Rapp pointed out dis-
crepancies between the amount on the
relief checks turned over to him and
the amount he had forwarded to the
county treasurer, Gibb was unable to
account for the difference.
In one instance, he stated that he
had turned all the money over;, on
another, that "he must have made a
refund to the township, and on still
another, "I can't tell you and I can't
explain it."
At the morning session, Attorney
Conlin finished his questioning of
Gibb, pointing out that (,here was
$5,283.25 in fees due the former clerk
from the county. Gibb testified that
he had filed the claim after he had
resigned, and that he was making
it again, because "when you've got
your back against a wall, you're going
to fight."
