Archaeologists from Louisiana state University and the army corps of engineers who discovered the remains last week said wednesday the 4-foot-Long Skull along with an intact spinal column and other Bones represented the most Complete remains Ever found of the ancient Basil saurus. A it s a one in a billion said corps archaeologist Bert Rader. A i know of no Complete Basil saurus Skull anywhere. It will give us hints of the ecology of that the Bones buried in an area to be covered with water when the corps widens and deepens the red River to accommodate barges were found by archaeologists who ordinarily investigate such areas before projects begin. Geologists believe the Gulf of Mexico was much farther North than it is now when the whale was alive at least 130 Miles farther North. A this particular whale did not die and Wash up on the Shoreline a said Judith Schiebout an leu geology professor. A its position indicates it died in deeper water from 150 to 200 feet an eight member team of leu graduate students and professors received a contract from the corps to study the red River area for fossils. They dug up 14 vertebrae thin Bones possibly from front fins shoulder Bones and Teeth several Days ago. Removal of the Skull began wednesday. The Skeleton was Complete from the belly Forward scientists said. No Tail Bones were found. Rader said the whale was about 55 feet Long. It was an evolutionary forerunner of the modern sperm whale he said. A whales started out in the water we All started out in the water crawled up on land and later returned to the sea a the archaeologist said. The changes also Are linked to inflation to rising costs in the banking Industry including the Cost of Money. A to the extent that the costs of delivering the services. Are going up it s going to be reflected in pricing. Customers will receive credit for what they have on Deposit and they will pay for transactions a Plechaty said. A somebody who wants to write a lot of checks will have to pay for each one of those checks. There Are going to be some winners and there Are going to be some the winners according to financial experts Are going to be people with hefty Bank accounts. A the people that have Money can make More Money a said Bob Walters of Sheshunoff amp co. Inc., an Austin. Texas firm that advises Banks on pricing and services. The losers Are going to be the people who keep Only a Small amount in the Bank but who. In the past have had free checking accounts. A i would say that free checking in the context of How it has been viewed in the past is probably dead a said Plechaty. Walters estimated Only 5 percent or to percent of Banks offer free checking today. He said most Banks require a customer to keep a minimum checking balance of several Hundred dollars or pay a monthly service fee and possibly a per Check charge As Well. Banks savings and loan associations and Thrift institutions traditionally make Money on what is known As a the spread the difference Between what they have to pay for Money deposited in accounts and the interest they can charge on Loans. High interest rates on savings certificates have Cut the spread. The removal of ceilings on passbook savings due in six years under the legislation passed in March will narrow the margin again. Checking accounts Are the Banks last source of a a free Money on which they do not have to pay interest. But that a changing. Now negotiated order of withdrawal accounts which Are in effect interest bearing checking accounts were introduced in new England eight years ago and spread to new York and new Jersey. Thanks to the Spring legislation they will be Legal on a nationwide basis starting Jan. 2, 1981. Credit unions started offering share drafts also interest bearing checking accounts in 1974, and Jim Williams head of the credit Union National association inc., estimates there will be 2.3 million share draft accounts by the end of the year. A Banks can to make Money like they used to taking in Low Cost deposits and converting these into Long term higher rate yields a said Herb Wegner head of a Washington d c., consulting firm. A the Banks have to go to a transaction charge a regulators Are still considering what rate of interest to allow on now accounts but most Industry spokesmen said they expected it to be in the Range of 5 percent. Passbook accounts and time Deposit certificates will continue to carry higher interest rates no one can predict what interest bearing checks will Cost. Ken Reich of the . League of savings associations said that As of the Middle of last year 56 percent of the savings and Loans offering now accounts had no service charge or minimum balance requirement. Curt Prins staff director of the consumer affairs subcommittee of the House banking committee said holders of most new York City now accounts must keep big minimum balances More than $2,000 in some cases in order to avoid stiff service fees. A the average person is not going to be Able to afford a now account a said Prins. Walters said the monthly Cost to the Bank on the average checking account today is $5 50.
