Was the ukulele embezzeled?

The Sarasota Herald of 2 August 1927 reported that the City Council’s ukulele had gone missing. It was ordered C.O.D around February 1926, and the agent who delivered it wants $15, but no one in authority at Council can lay hands on it. Councilman Stephens said that Council didn’t mind paying for it,  but ‘we might as well get some good out of it’. It seems that some greedy soul was hogging public property. The Council was anxious to retrieve its ukulele.

At $15 in 1926, that’s probably a Martin or a Gibson.
