The embezzlement scandal of 1973

Being the president for
sny organization csn be
a dsunting task, snd for
the University's 1973 Stu-
dent Government Council
president, this task was
made even mnre daunting
when he was charged with
Lee Gill's rival can-
didates pointed fingers
when $8,500 from the SGC
account was transferred
to another account in
Detroit under Gill's name.
The word embezzlement
was thrown around, but
solid evidence could not
be found, according to an
Oct. 16, 1973 article in The
Michigan Daily.
The $8,500 was with-
drawn by Gill from the

Huron Valley Bank in the
formo of a cashier's check,
and the transfer was made
tn provide easier access to
the money, he claimed. It
also kept the money away
from University officials.
Once in the Detroit bank,
however, the money story
becomes a little murky.
Gill claimed that he put
the money under his name
because several bank tell-
ers told him that he lacked
the proper identification to
open a corporate account.
He then set up two
accounts, one under his
name, and another under
K. Haywood, a friend who
went to the bank with
Gill, because Gill had only
brought a student ID.

Gill asserted that he had
every intention of return-
ing the next day to properly
open the account.
HoweverMonte Labadie,
the offical of Manufac-
turer's National where Gill
opened the account, gave
a different report. Labadie
said that Gill made no men-
tion of corporate accounts.
His suspicions were only
heightened when Gill did
not have appropriate iden-
tification, and the cashier's
check was made out to the
bank instead of the orga-
nization from which the
money came.
The bank's Loss Preven-
tion Department called
Huron Valley Bank after
receiving a call from

Labadie. According to John
Kennedy, the head of the
department, Gill had the
money taken out of the SGC
account and made into a
cashier's check per his per-
sonal request.
Henry Johnaon, vice
president of Student Ser-
vices, looked into the mat-
ter, and had no reason to
suspect that there was any
criminal activity going on.
In the end, Gill, David
Fowler, the SGC adminis-
trative vice president, and
SGC Treasurer Rosemary
Mullin went into the bank
the next day and removed
the money, which waa
promptly returned to Ann

LSA freshman Kari Chen sits by the Angell Hall post-
log wall, which she says is a good way to share infor-
mation despite the fact that ads ultiwatelp bleed is
with one another.
