More Money

A clever, but financially strapped college student discovered that he had spent all of his room and board money on less academic pursuits. Quickly, he telegrammed his dear old parents for cash. However, he was so destitute, he could only afford three words. By an amazingly serendipitous stroke of fortune, he was able to send his request, the total amount needed, and the breakdown in this simple message:

    + MORE
    ------
