Continually harassed by firms to which they owe Money they become suspicious of the company and leave. To counter act this loss of customers credit advisors demand that must be payed in escrow when the contract for debt adjustment is Sig Ned. This amounts to a fee which the company holds in the event the debtor decides to Rem Ove himself from under the auspices of credit advisors. Most credit managers charge approximately per separate debt. This amounts to 3 or 4% of the amount the Deb Tor is Able to pay which Points to the fact that credit advisors is clearly Over leaping the Bounds of most respectable debt adjusters. In fact our unidentified source has checked Over two dozen of the major credit adjusters in Waterloo and none of them would a consider paying any relations Dit advisors. None of these firms considered them trustworthy. How does the attorney general intend to pre vent credit advisors from taking per annul out of the state the injunction of Scalise is divided roughly into two parts 1 that the firm Stop advertising fraudulently and 2 that they take no funds out of the state. It is problematical at this time How much Force Scalise s request has behind it.

Our undisclosed source commented that this is one reason that he was sorry Scalise was Defeated in la St week s he Wouldr kelp to a Bill which would Cor rect these abuses. He also conjectured however that the juror which has been aroused Over credit advisors conduct would probably Spur some kind of legislation in the coming session. Incident he remarked Many of the people be Hind such a Bill were responsible debt and jus tors who were tired of the Black Eye people like credit advisors were giving at this i Ime credit advisors is giving no indication of leaving Iowa.

New Gar Bage and waste cans we got. Our mayor Robert Johnson has got the people of Cedar rapids eat ing out of his hands. By that i mean he does things in a smart and sly manner. We need buses. Not new garbage cans. Not As though the Money spent for the new garbage cans would Benear by enough for even a minute part of what it would Cost for a bus subsidy. Even i know better than this. Something is wrong when More and More local businesses leave our downtown area deserted and forlorn looking. Down town parking lots we got. Buses we Don t. I think the bus strike will go through this Winter and next and Only then will it break because the bus company will pick up their buses and leave town completely. People can keep walking. William Burrows 1012-15th Avenue so Cedar rapids the grandmas today Are quite different somehow.
