Next Week Program:
"Who you going to call?"
In 1931, at the height of the Great Depression, Joliet was broke.
Government workers, teachers, firemen and police were being
paid in tax-anticipation warrants. The banks were closed and
merchants--who were accepting the warrants--had nowhere to 
cash them. On May 27,1933, a group of eleven Rotarians
formed the Joliet Clearing Association and printed new
script that they backed by thousands of their own money. They 
arranged with two Rotarian-owned businesses to pay their 
employees in 2/3 cash and 1/3 script. The script was quickly 
circulated. Local merchants were able to redeem it at the new
Clearing Association, and purchase needed inventory to stay
open. 13 months later the script was called for cash with a 
profit of $1,000 which was donated to local charities.
