The President of the District of Columbia Board of Directors requested advice concerning payment of a voucher for traveling expenses in favor of Caroline A. Whipple, in the amount of $50.00, purporting to cover an honorarium for addressing the Emergency Adult Education Institute, with the note that the expenses incurred in connection with this institute were approved by Doctor L.R. Alderman under date of September 20, 1935--traveling expenses taken care of by Miss Whipple.

Under the circumstances, this office will interpose no objection to the disbursement in question in the accounts of the disbursing officer for the District of Columbia, it appearing that the expenditure in the amount of $50 may be considered as an allowable administrative expense in carrying out the purpose of the approved project.
