wise. Foe Protection.
Mr. Bertelsen in an interview this
morning said: "It often happens that
a guest will hand us a bogus check.
After we discover it we try to make
it good, but often fail. Often a man
who puts one over on us here will go
to Davenport the next time and do
the same at some hotel there. With
this association of clerks, we can put
each other on guard."
The meetings will be devoted also
to social diversion and following the
regular business, each time the clerks
gather, refreshments will be served
and an hour or two devoted to socia
bility. It Is planned to hold the meetings
