87 To the Board of Trustees of the University of North Carolina Met at Raleigh, N. C. January twenty-fourth, 1933, A. D.

Joseph B. Chesire, Jr., your Escheator, begs to make the following report:

First: That he has received no monies since the last report, in which he reported the balance on hand paid to the University of North Carolina. He thinks that, perhaps, two or three thousand dollars may be collected from certain Clerks of the Superior Courts within the next few weeks, but he is, of course, not absolutely certain

Second: That Mr. W. B. Snow, an alumnis, of Kinston, N. C., has submitted an opinion that the Ninteen Thirty-one (1931) Amendment to the Workmen's Compensation Act is unconstitutional, in that it attemps to pay the North Carolina Industrial Commissions awards to persons who have no next of kin. Your Escheator agrees with this opinion entirely.

Third: That for sometime it has been quite evident, and your Escheator has made several reports thereon, that much larger sums could be secured from the Clerks of the Superior Courts of unclaimed funds due the University of North Carolina by employing some reliable person to examine the Annual Reports and records of the CLerks of the Superior Courts throughout the State. Your Escheator again brings this matter to your attention and urges that it be referred to the new Escheat Committee with power to act.

Respectfully Submitted, (signed) Joseph B. Chesire, Jr. Escheator University of North Carolina.
