STUDENT PATRONAGE
NETS LITTLE . PROF
FOR ANN ARBOR BANK
STUDEN' ACCOUNTS ADD ITTILE
TO BALANCES OF BANKS
DURING YEAR
CHARGE MADE BY BANKS
* Carl Braun Says Accounts Are Handled
Only Because 1nkers Like
Students So Well
Handling checking accounts for stu-
dents is not a paying proposition, ac-
cording to Carl F. Braun, vice-presi-
dent of the Ann Arbor Savings bank.
The insignificance of the students'
accounts is shown by the balance of
tx the bank's accounts for each month.
June, the month in which students
draw out all that they hve left to
their credit, has, save in a very few
instances, a larger balance than the
average for the first six months, and
is larger than February usually has.
A glance at the record of any stu-
dent's account' will show that in most
cases seventy-five dollars, or less, is
deposited at the first of every month.
By the end of the month the balance
is usually less than two dollars, often
zero. The money has been drawn out
In very small amounts, checks of from
fifty cents to ten dollars. Rarely do
students draw large checks.
Until a charge was made of fifty
cents a month for checking accounts,
the bank last several thousand dollars
a year, Mr. Braun pointed out. Even
at present, when a charg'e is made,
the bank still loses.
A few years ago Mr. Braun made
an examination of all the students'
accounts and found that fifty-one per,
cent tried to overdraw their accounts
at least once during the year.
"I guess the only reason we handle
students' accounts is because we like
them so well," Mr. Braun remarked.

Replying once more to the "Red
Jacket" decision, corporation counsel
quoted: "It is clear that no more
effective way of shutting down the
mines could be devised than to get
the houses of the mine villages in pos-
session of persons who refuse to work
in the mines and withhold possession,
of the houses from the possession of
persons who are willing to work.'
Answering the corporation's claims
for damages, the union denied that its
members had abused non-union men
and had damaged company property.
Union counsel claimed much of the
disorder at mining villages, and mnich
of the property damage due to ex-
plosions, pistol and rifle fire, was
caused by police emnloyed by the com-
pany. The police, they claimed, after
causing disorders and damages,
sought to place the blame upon union
workmen. They complained that
these police abused union nen and
membersof their families.
The Pittsburgh Coal company, first
big corporation in this field to dc-
Clare its mines open shop, was
brought into the case by Mr. Lewis.
In an affidavit, the union chief claim-
ed that during the Miami wage con-
ference, Frank E. Taplin, Cleveland
coal and railroad magnate and a lead-
ing Terminal stockholder, had ap-
proached him with a proposition for
a secret agreement with the union.

NEW YORK, Oct. 4.-The entire
sixth floor of the International Ladies'
Garment Workers' Union building at'
3 West 16th treet has been donated
-to the Debs Memorial Radio fund,
trustee of Station WEVD, 31 Union
Square, New York City, the only labor
radio station in the East, by decision
of the General Executive Board of the
International Union, it was revealed
yesterday.
The decision was unanimously
reached at the conclusion of the
Board meeting in Boston this week
after Morris Sigman, President of the
International, urged the measure as
an inevitable one, since WEVD,
named in honor of the late Eugene
V. Debs, has been established as a
crusading vehicle in the interests of
the organized labor movement of
America. Great appreciation was ex-
pressed yesterday by Norman Thomas,
chairman of the Debs fund, and G.
August Gerber, Secretary.
