moneys from the government of the United States or any agency
thereof, shall file with a fiduciary commissioner annually, on
the anniversary date of the appointment, or within thirty days
thereafter, in addition to such other accounts as may be
required, a full, true and accurate account under oath of all
moneys so received by him, of all disbursements thereof, and
showing the balance thereof in his hands at the date of such
account and how invested: Provided,
That in cases where the
income received by the committee or guardian does not average
annually more than eight hundred dollars, the committee or
guardian may make his report of account to the commissioner once
in every three years. The fiduciary commissioner shall send a
true copy of each such account to the office of the bureau or
other agency of the government having jurisdiction over the area
in which the court is located and from which payments are made.
The fiduciary commissioner shall fix a time and place for the
hearing on such account not less than fifteen nor more than
thirty days from the date of filing the same, and notice thereof
shall be given by the fiduciary commissioner to the aforesaid
bureau or other agency of the government not less than fifteen
days prior to the date fixed for the hearing. Notice of such
hearing shall in like manner be given to the guardian.
