Kinsmen also participated in a project to
help prove that sometimes getting involved
with plastic money can pay. The club was
paid to distribute credit card applications

- by fellow Kinsmen members. He was

given a kilt, with which to clad himself.
The kilted member was then dropped off
on Washington Boulevard and had to run
back to Gardner Dormitory, where his
clothing awaited him in the arms of his
