Regents

By MARTIN HIRSCHMAN
The Regents are expected to take final action Friday
on the Student Government Council proposal for the creation
of a University discount bookstore.
The proposal, which has the active support of Acting
Vice President for Student Affairs Barbara Newell, was
the subject of a prolonged discussion yesterday during a meet-
ing of the University' executive officers - the vice presi-
dents and President Robben Fleming.
Vice President for Academic Affairs Alan F. Smith re-
ported the meeting resulted in "no final solution" on the
question of whether the exe- -

cutive officers would recom-
mend creation of the book-
store.
Newell, however, described the
discussion as "hashing out me-
chanics of how we'd handle things
with the Regents." She said
SGC would have to prepare a new
report on financing the book-
store in time for the Regents
meeting.
In addition to SGC's recom-
mendation, the Regents will also
receive the results of a survey ofl
other college bookstores, a com-
munication from local bookstore
owners and a study on the book-
store question prepared by the
Ann Arbor Chamber of Com-
merce.
The college bookstore survey,
compiled by Tom Brown, assist-
ant director of student-community
relations, sampled 11 schools in-
eluding six universities in t h e
state and five other midwestern
hools.
The report shows that most col-
lege bookstores sampled sell books
at list price. In postponing ac-
tion on the bookstore last month,
the Regents expressed concern
that a bookstore here would be
unable to offer a discount unless
it were continuously, subsidized
through tuition moneys.
However, none of the univer-
sities in the state collect sales
tax on educational materials.
Thus; they are selling the dis-
counted items four per cent lower
than most private stores. This is
because private stores must col-
lect the sales tax.
Of the six schools' in the state,
only the Wayne State University
bookstore offers a discount over
and above the sales tax. Offering
a 10 per cent discount of text-
books, the store operates rent-
free but has not received a sub-
sidy since it was formed. The
WSU bookstore has shown a pro-
fit.
And except for the stores at
Michigan Techhological Univer-
sity, all six stores in the state
are showing profits. The MTU
bookstore is only breaking even
but offers a 15 per cent discount
to members of the academic staff.
Most of the others offer a 10
per cent discount to academic
staff.
The Michigan State University
bookstore, Nyhich sells at.list price,
has shown a profit of $75,000 over
the last five years.
All five of . the out-of-state
bookstores report a profit over the
past five years, but only one offers
a discount.

Discussion1
to, be held
Senate Assembly's Academic
Affairs Committee will hold
an open meeting tomorrow to
explore the relationship of the
University to the Reserve Of-
ficer Training Corps.
The committee will issue an
interim report by Sept. 1 on
ROTC's role in the University. A
final report is scheduled for Oct.
1.
The format of the meeting to-
morrow has been loosely planned.
Prof. T. V. Buttry, co-chairman of
the committee, said yesterday the
agenda will probably begin with
a short presentation to enumer-
ate and define the arguments
which have been presented to the
committee.
A discussion period between re-
presentatives of the committee
and the audience will follow.
Any individual wishing to place
his name on the agenda is ask-
ed to contact Buttrey at 764-0360
or Prof. Horrace Davenport at
764-4352.
The meeting will be held at
8 p~m. in Aud. A of Angell Hall.
In May, Senate Assembly auth-
orized the Academic Affairs Com-
mittee to study the ROTC ques-
tion. The Assembly acted on a
proposal from the Senate Advis-
ory Committee on University Af-
fairs.
The ROTC issue was referred to
SACUA by literary college Dean
William Hays at the end of the
winter term.
Two student members were in-
cluded on the 13 member com-

By JUDY SARASOHN -
Following the footsteps of the Washte-
naw County sheriff deputies, the command
officers of ti~e Ann Arbor police depart-
ment have informed the city that they
will join the Teamsters Union.
- Teamster attorney Donald J. Prebenda
wrote City Administrator Guy Larcom, Jr.
that a "substantial majority" of command
officers want to affiliate with the union.
Command officers-from uniformed cor-
poral through deputy chief-are supervisory
personnel and thus are not allowed to
join the Ann Arbor Police Officer Associ-
ation.
The major event instigating the depu-
ties' unionization was a running dispute
with the County Board of Supervisors con-
cerning overtime pay, but money does not

ter Krasny-who has an appointed office
and cannot belong to the union-says that
the officers have no special reason to fear
the city administration even though they
do not come under civil servant codes,
Krasny says there is, in fact, no real job
insecurity.
Mayor Robert Harris has said he has
no intentions to fire present command
officers.
"The command officers have no prob-
lems with the city administrator or the
city council." said Larcom. He added that
he had not been in touch with the officers
on the issue and now that he has been
contacted by Prebenda it would be unfair
labor practice to talk with them.

Krasny said he doesn't approve of the

While reasserting that the officers had
the right to join any union they wished,

Weeks said Mrs. Mhoon's state-

Weeks cited two "key" sentences
from the commission's bylaws
which say the commission "may
