BUCK SAYS LUNDIN CHECK WAS
RENT FOR CAMPAIGN HALL
Mayor Thompson's attempt to
make Aid. Rob't M. Buck out a liar
may prove a boomerang. It looks to

man to whom this check was drawn

check was from Fred Lundin, the
mayor's chief political adviser, whom
Buck has denounced as "a menace to
Mayor Thompson did not go into
any details about the payment of the
check which was for $40.
"After Thompson defeated Olson
in the primaries last year," said Buck
in explaining the check, "we invited
Thompson to use the Buck headquar

manager, J. G. Schaefer. I don't think
I ever indorsed the check."
On the back of the check the
mayor holds are the names of "J. G.
Schaefer" and "R. M. Buck."
