During the past couple of weeks, we were compelled to write almost 100 letters to our lodges as to why certain checks were not cashed with in 90 days. The surprising part is that many such checks are for fairly large amounts and in many cases are a year, or more, old. Not only does such a situation cause havoc with our bookkeeping, but it al so costs the Society and lodges unnecessary postage and much valuable time which can be well utilized for other purposes. Therefore, we strongly urge our lodge secretaries and the Bar*3 s membership to show more individual Highs concern in this phase of our operations SO as to alleviate the burden and unnecessary 576 work for all those concerned. And since we are bringing up matters for the better 486, ment of our operations, we also urge our Secretaries to examine more carefully all forms, applications and claims which are mailed to the Home Office. Here too, much time and postage is wasted due to the fact that a certain form, claim or application was not prop erly completed by the lodge, with the result that same must be returned for correc tion or completion. Therefore, please let'« be more concerned with these matter® as they are impor tant to the member as well as the lodge and the Society. Joseph Bella, Supreme Secy. WEST ALLIS, WISC. C. F. U.
