The SGC Committee for a University Bookstore met Thurs-
day night to set up the machinery for an organized campaign.
The committee plans to circulate petitions urging the repeal of
the Regents ruling of 1929, which precludes the establishment of
a University-run bookstore. The committee was organized to work
for the creation of a bookstore which could save students up to
10 per cent on new textbooks, and stresses as a key argument
the existence of such a store on the University's Flint Campus.
The petitions will be submitted to the Board of Regents at their
meeting Oct. 21-22, as tangible evidence of student support.
' Committee members emphasize, however, that their object is not
to reveal student support so much as the true attitude of the
administration toward the economic welfare of those students.

The University is receiving an anonymous donation of $1
million as part of its $55 million fund-raising drive. Paul G.
Goebel, national chairman of the coast-to-coast fund-raising
campaign announced that the total of all gifts -and pledges has
risen to $24,536,016. The purpose of the drive, according to
Goebel, is "to ensure the vital margin" of private support for
the University.
The Chrysler Corp. donated $1.3 million to the University's
fund-raising program yesterday. Lynn A. Townsend, president of
the corporation, told the National Leadership Conference of the
program that "the educational system of America is industry's
most important supplier," and "no other university has provided
us with so many people."

An Office of Religious Affairs census compiled from fall
registration figures indicates that Protestants lead in the re-
ligious preference of the student body at 7,176. There were 3,420
Catholic and 2,496 Jewish preferences listed. However, from a
total student body of 28,003, there were 14,277 students who
indicated no religious preference on their registrationnaires.
The figures were compiled by the ORA as a service to those
interested in a religious breakdown of the student population,
primarily for the benefit of the directors of campus religious
Ann Arbor will eventually be engulfed by the Detroit metro-
politan area, according to a report released yesterday by United

The University Activities Center and the Literary College
Steering Committee have announced that the student counselling
seminars will be held Oct. 5 in rms. 3c, 3d and 3g of the Union.
Qualified seniors will be available to offer advice on their fields
of concentration, distribution requirements and methods of
approach in various courses. The seminar is mainly for freshmen
and sophomores. The departments represented will be zoology,
anthropology, economics, English, mathematics, philosophy, poli-
tical science, psychology, chemistry and sociology.
Some sororities at the University have responded to the recent
fuss over the distribution of birth control pills to students. They
have held polls among their sisters on whether or not the pills
ought to be distributed by the University. In the one case re-
ported (the others refused comment). favorable responses out-
numbered unfavorable responses "at least two to one," -one
sorority member stated yesterday. She asked that her sorority
not be named "for obvious reasons."

Stockwell Hall was overcrowd-

a, large part, provided by others,
both taxpayers and donors, and
their willingness and desire to
perpetuate the system.
Goebel is the overseer who is
still creating his formal organiza-
tion. He is a man with a real pur-
pose and, as he puts it, "quite a
product to sell." The status of the
University in 20 years will, to a
large degree, depend upon this
man's efforts now, yet he wears
his role well, with little sense of
self-importance or pomposity.
