If bill collectors ran the Red Cross, they likely would send bloodmobiles into turnip patches. What is more, thsy might turn up a few donors.

When the bill collector wife was employed and what time he could usually be found at home. The deadbeat, thinking he was about to receive a new auto, on which he would not have to default any payments, would complete the form and mail it back.

This can lead to some rather interesting situations, one of which recently turned up before the Federal Trade Commission.

C. - A thoughtful position was taken Monday by New Mexico's two U.S. Senators In a stand over an administration compromise In the fight under way on the anti-poll tax provision inclusion in the voting rights bill. Both Sens. Anderson find Montoya indicated some doubts concerning the constitutionality of the provision which was sponsored by Sen. Edward (Ted) Kennedy, D-Mass. The original voting rights blfl did not include a provision to bar the poll tax in state and local elections, but a group of liberal senators led by Sen.
