He alio Is temporary chairman of the recently appointed Illinois Commission on Children. He cited effects of credit buying with no possibility of pay* ing, pointing out the hopelessness of some credit situations. Children, he said, copy the pattern set by their parents. "Where is all this going to end?" he asked. "There has to come a reckoning, we should examine our consciences credit wise." Credit No Roller Coaster The social service director said that some merchants don't want to be bothered with credit bureaus to check credit ratings. They just want to sell merchandise, not caring where the money comes from, he asserted. Use of gimmicks in selling merchandise are undermining people's sense of responsibility, he remarked. People have an idea that credit is a roller coaster, forgetting that even on a roller coaster, stops are made and another ticket must be purchased, the monsignor remarked. Some people are violating the commandment, "Thou Shalt Not Steal," as they buy with no intention of paying, Msgr. Middleton commented.

Instability of the home, regarding finances, is affecting children, who feel this instability. "I am convinced we are going to have more mental cases in the next decade due to credit irresponsibility that makes unstable homes and insecure children," Msgr. Middleton stated. This should be a subject of study, he added. Invocation for the dinner was by Rev. Malcolm Shotwell, pastor of First Baptist Church. Phil Burrows, president of the Galesburg Chapter of Credit Unions, introduced Art Webb, state manager of Cuna Mutual Insurance Society, who was toastmaster for the program following the dinner. Special guests and chapter officers were introduced, and recognition was given representatives of participating credit unions. The chapter is comprised of 26 credit unions, of which 17 are in Galesburg, two in Abingdon, three each in Kewanee and Macomb and one in Monmouth.
