R1940 (Periodic Compensations) says that "each periodic compensation
required to be paid out shall eb paid out by the Officer required to do
so" and "... the Salary for each wage-earning Office are periodic
compensations". This would lead one to believe that the Statement is TRUE.
Rule 1940/0 (Power=1)
The Rules may designate certain compensations to be periodic
compensations. As soon as possible after the beginning of each
month, each periodic compensation required to be paid out shall
be paid out by the Officer required to do so.
The Minimum Income, the Distributor's Gratuity, the Speaker's
Gratuity, and the Salary for each wage-earning Office are
The Payroll Clerk shall pay out the Minimum Income to each
Player, and shall further pay out to each Player the designated
Salary for each Office that Player held for at least 12 days of
the previous month.
The Registrar shall pay out the Distributor's Gratuity to the
Distributor if the Distributor is a Player and was both the
Distributor and a Player for at least 12 days of the previous
The Registrar shall pay out the Speaker's Gratuity to a Player
if that Player was Speaker for the whole of the previous month.
Judge Murphy's Arguments:
I Judge FALSE.
Not all periodic compensations are required to be paid out. If an Office
is held by a Player who held that Office for less than 12 days of the
previous month, then the Salary for that Office (if any) is a periodic
compensation that is *not* required to be paid out that month.
