McGee Tells 10 Agencies to Return Stock, Plates

FAIRFAX, Va. -- Travel agent arbiter William McGee ordered the following agencies to return any remaining ticket stock and plates to the Airlines Reporting Corp.:

* A Discovery Travel Center Inc. of Oklahoma City, which the arbiter said failed to pay for a dishonored sales draft worth $961 and to submit sales reports.

* AIA Travel Service Inc. of Riverdale, Md., which McGee said lost ARC accreditation in October for failing to pay a default in full.

* Diana E. Murray (doing business as Travel Free Travel Agency) of Miami, which McGee said lost ARC accreditation in October.

* Doyle W. Dewoody (doing business as Travel Quest) of Little Rock, Ark., which McGee said voluntarily relinquished ARC accreditation in October and accounted for all but 49 tickets.

* Eduardo Galvan (doing business as Elegant Traveler) of Paterson, N.J., which McGee said lost ARC accreditation in October for failing to reply to an ARC notice asking whether it abandoned its authorization location.

An agency executive said the tickets were in the bank and asked McGee to hold the firm's accreditation in abeyance until it relocates to a new building. McGee, however, said termination was automatic when the agency failed to reply to ARC's notice.

He said the firm can reapply for accreditation when "a new location is actually in place."

* Janet D. Lemmons, General Partner (doing business as Classic Travel) of Temple, Texas, which McGee said lost ARC accreditation in November.

* Jeff S. Waterson (doing business as Dry Creek Travel Center) of San Jose, Calif., which McGee said failed to pay $14,867 for dishonored drafts.

* London Town Inc. (doing business as Penthouse Travel) of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., which McGee said lost ARC accreditation in October.

* Manara Travel Agency of Washington, which McGee said voluntarily relinquished ARC accreditation and did not account for all its tickets.

* Remedios Poblete (doing business as Agape Travel) of Houston, which McGee said lost ARC accreditation in October.
