and soft goods, such as paper and

Feldkamp felt a bookstore would
definitely need a subsidy to get
started no matter what its dis-
count. He estimated that from
$40,000 to $50,000 would be re-
quired for fixtures and about
$500,000 for the first year's texts.
These figures assume a full-
scale, year-around operation, not
the limited, seasonal operation of
previous co-op bookstores, he de-
Feldkamp said that consultants
have estimated a bookstore would
require 14,000 square feet of sell-

ing space and 7,000 square feet
for storage.
It had earlier been thought that
the bookstore might use facilities
in the Michigan Union, but only
5,000 square feet of space is avail-
able there.
Feldkamp mentioned the pos-
sibility of acquiring space in the
administration building but said
that many departments are al-
ready clamoring for its space.
Feldkamp said that the only
other possibilities for acquiring
plant space would lie in the con-
struction of a new building or

renting a building. But even these
plans would require additional
funds, which would have to come
from a University subsidy, he said.
Salaries for a full-time manager
and several clerks and secretaries
also increase overhead costs which
would make the offering of a 10
per cent discount infeasible, Feld-
kamp felt.
Nationally, book merchants make
a very low net profit on texts,
about two to three per cent, and
make their money in specialities
or other areas such as real estate,
he added.
He cited examples of university-
operated bookstores at other state

schools, which either offer no dis-
count or which have university
* Though the bookstore at
Wayne State University offers a
10 per cent discount, the univer-
sity there provides its plant space.
0 Not only does the university
provide plant space for Western
Michigan University's store, but no
discount is offered. Profits go into
a scholarship fund.
" Michigan State University's
bookstore receives no subsidy and
offers no discount. Profits are
used for other university activities.

Feldkamp mentioned several
sources of a possible subsidy for
a University bookstore which
would allow it to offer a 10 per
cent discount.
He said the possibility of receiv
ing a private gift for the store is
highly unlikely, and that it is also
improbable that the Legislature
would be willing to grant funds
for a store, since it has stressed
teaching salaries and classroom
But bookstore subsidies might
be appropriated from student fees
or other areas of the general
fund, Feldkamp mentioned. To re-
ceive money from these sources,

the bookstore requests would have
to be submitted to the University
budget committee on a par with
requests from all the University's
departments, he said.
Whether or not the committee
would be willing to recommend
the allocation of funds for a book-
store would depend upon the needs
of other departments and the
priorities established, he said.

Council off-campus housing committee and representative to
the newly formed housing advisory council which will be wdrking
with Vice-President for Student Affairs Richard Cutler and Vice-
President for Business and Finance Wilbur K. Pierpont, said last
night the council will recommend the establishment of a perma-

and report back their tastes and desires in University housing.
Next week the council, will meet with Pierpont to discuss

Student Government Council's committee for off-campus
housing is submitting to the Office of Student Affairs student-
written leases. These leases, hopefully, will become official Uni-
versity policy, chairman of the committee Russell Linden, '67L,
commented. It is expected that students will stress eight-month
rentals rather than the current 12-month plan.

The John Birch Society and an Ann Arbor ad hoc committee
for the support of local police will pass out "Support Your Local
Police" handbills Friday just before the Homecoming parade, it
was announced at a meeting of Young Americans for Freedom
yesterday evening.
It was also announced that YAF is sponsoring a national
contest with a $2000 first prize for the best essay on John Storm-
er's controversial book, "None Dare Call It Treason."
Tonight, Student Government Council will consider a pro-
posal to establish a Sponsorship Fund, providing financial assist-
ance to needy student organizations. As suggested, the fund will
consist of $800 allocated from SGC general funds. In order to
maintain the SGC general fund at a level sufficient to permit the
Sponsorship Fund, it is proposed that SGC collect from organi-
zations and groups sponsoring concerts in Hill Aud a fee (per
concert) equal to three per cent! of the net profits off such con-
The Council will also consider a motion proposed by Inter-
quadrangle Council President Lee Hornberger, '66, to rescind the
motion passed by SGC supporting the case of Paul Schiff. "After
further investigation it appears that Michigan State University
had valid reasons for expelling him, and I think the Council
should consider the matter more thoroughly," Hornberger said.

Arthur Collingsworth, '66, will participate in the Symposium
for Freedom in Viet Nam to be held in Washington, D.C., this
Saturday. Collingsworth, who spent part of the summer in
Viet Nam on a grant from the American Friends of Viet Nam,
will be part of a student panel discussion on American and
Vietnamese student reaction to the Southeast Asian war.
The University was featured in this week's Nation magazine
in an article by Christopher Lasch entitled "New Curriculum for
Teach-Ins." Lasch pointed out the great affect the University
teach-ins have had on the Viet Nam situation by sparking other
teach-ins and discussions. However, he criticized the failure of
the University teach-in to get to the heart of the problem. He
considered the most important function of the teach-in should
have been to find new ways to make the U.S. government change
its policy in Viet Nam and to go to the heart of American foreign
policy and the society that created it. This year's University teach-
in :Sept. 14-18) failed in this respect, Lasch said, because it be-

Also in regard to need, Lemble
and Hertz argued that the city
should conduct a door-to-door sur-

exactly. Hathaway argued that
this w- s unnecessary since the
commission would undertake this
study with federal funds after its
establishment - as required of it
by law.
In the area of control, the con-
troversy was similar. Lemble de-
manded that the number, type
and cost of projects be delineat-
ed beforehand instead of leaving
it up to the commission.
In regard to cost, a key factor
stressed last night was the amount

low as five per cent in some cases,

Five youths were arraigned yesterday morning in the Lansing
Township Justice Court for having set up an exhibit on the
Michigan State University campus attacking U.S. policy in Viet
Nam without permission of university authorities.
Rehard Bernitt, director of MSU's Public Safety Depart-
vent, said about 10 youths set up signs and began passing out mate-
rial criticizing the United States' role in Viet Nam.
When five refused to leave, they were arrested on charges of
trespassing on state property and violating a university regula-
tion against distribution of materials without a permit.
State Rep. Jack Faxon (D-Detroit), chairman of the House
subcommittee on higher education of the ways and means com-
mittee, said yesterday that the investigation of the University's
books, begun by state auditors last July 27 following the tuition
increase, will be concluded by Oct. 31. He added that his com-
mittee will visit the University the first week in November and
closely scrutinize the University's finances itself.
