Found on a table at JP Licks

Last night after the Contra Dance a bunch of us went to JP Licks as we usually do. When I went to move a nearby table to the set we were occupying I found this intriguing list lying on the table.



What is Stoltzfus? There is a yogurt brand...

When I turned it over it was a specially formatted unused punched card. I wonder how old it was. I googled MATC and found Milwaukee Area Technical College. On the card was Albany refund? there is an Albany, WI but it is pretty far away from Milwaukee.

do not fold, spindle, or mutilate this card

.
not so much a punch card as a marksense card, in customised format. I answered many multiple-guesschoice on those beasties. And I notice the unconventional clipped corner -- usually that was top-LEFT, not right.

I haven't laid eyes on a card in that size and shape for many years. (nibbling on madeleine biscuit here)

As I remarked at the time, if our lives were a work of detective fiction, this card would be an absolute treasure trove of important clues.

690/481 are Interstate highways in Syracuse, NY, for what little that's worth...

Which suggests that the "Albany refund" field refers to the capital of New York.
