Student Book Exchange is a co-
operative service operated by Stu-.
dent Government Council.
It provides University students
a place to sell their used text books
and buy others cheaply.
When books are sold, 10 per cent
is deducted from the proceeds to
cover advertising, wages and sup-
plies of the exchange. Money from
sales and any unsold books must
be called for betwpen the days
listed on the book card receipt
given to every prospective seller.'
Unsold books wpich are not
called for at.this time become the
property of the Exchange.
Exchange administrators recom-
mend that students price books in
good condition at 60 per cent to
70 per cent of their original cost
to the owner.
The Student Book Exchange was
originally operated under the aus-
pices of the Michigan Union. Re-
garded as a "white elephant" by
campus organizations in general
and the Union in particular, at-
tempts were made to have it
adopted by the Student Legisla
tures which proceeded SGC as the
student representative body.
The Legislature, however, main-
tained a "hands.off" policy, toward
the book exchange.
SGC Takes Control
With the dissolving of the Stu-
dent Legislature, and thbe advent
of SGC, the time seemed ripe for
the book exchange to" change
SGC, at first, would have no
part of the'rExchangebut later
took responsibility for it.'
Operating at the beginning and
end of each semester, SBX of-
fers students a limited amount of
time in which to take advantage
of its facilities.
Within a 60-day period from the
beginning of the semester, the ac-
tivities of the Student Book Ex-
change must be terminated.
This means that no more- books
may be 'sold, no more money may
be relegated to student owners of
sold books and no more books may
be brought in for selling purposes
until the Exchange opens at the
Students can present their used
books for sale in various ways.
During the winter semester, a
collection table is provided in the
