Union Will Put
Bad Checks On
Public Display
Students' checks returned from the
bank marked "short" or "no funds"
have always been a source of trouble
for the Union, the amounts of ,ad
checks on hand usually averaging $30
to $50 and the total often running as
high as $75. Various plans have been
tried in an attempt to cut down the
amount of bad checks which are cash-
ed for students, but none has proven
successful to date.
Peng a club for the students, Union
officials do not care to refuse checks
entirely, and as a result a new plan
has been inauigurated, which it is hop-
ed will tend to ininimnize t'he cashing
of worthless Checks.
All checs which Pave been return-
,d from banks because of lack of
funds to cover the amount have been
placed in a glass framo -nd hung in
a conspicuous place at the main desk.
Yesterday $35 worth were hung in the
frame and as more come back they
