Laws Aid Lender
John M. Scoville of Detroit pointed
out at the same session that most
regulatory laws passed thus far have
bene more beneficial to the lender
than to the borrower.
William G. Sutcliffe, director of
the Graduate School of Business Ad-

pointed out at a luncheon meeting
in the Union the final session of the
Conference, that education in the use
of credit is necessary.
Credit, he explained, is used today
for many non-durable goods which
canot be termed necessities. This is
bad, as it leads to depreciation of
purchased articles to values below
the amount loaned for their pur-
chases by finance companies, Sut-
cliffe added.
