Marshals sometimes collect
overdue student loan payments
LOANS from Page 1
The writ of execution allows the marshal
to confiscate what is necessary to cover the
debt. The confiscated items are then adver

said, and the amount is rendered against the
If the dollar amount of the items sold is
greater than the debt, the remainder is re
funded to the student, he said.
Semisch recalled one instance in which a
Corvette was confiscated. He said the owner
came in the next day and paid $6,000 on his
debt to get the Corvette back.
If payments are set up to pay back the
debt, the student can expect them to be much

up when the loan was taken out.
Semisch said payments usually run from
$ 150 to $250 instead of the $30 to $50 that 1
was set up by the lender. The time period to
pay back the loan is also much shorter,
usually running from one to two years in
stead of, for example, the 10-ycar payback
set up with some loans when they are taken
out when the student is in school.
One reason many loans aren’ t paid back,

Right now the yearbook committee needs

1985 ballot, 57 percent of student voters said
they would buy a yearbook and pay the extra
