MOSCOW - The Soviet Union,
in its apparent bid to become Al-
geria's best friend, is making somet
progress but has a long way to go.
Algerian President Ahmed Ben
Bella, here on a state visit, has
been given every honor the Soviet
Union could heap upon him. And
a Soviet commission in Algeria is
talking with money.£
Somehow, his visit hasn't cre-
ated the public excitment created
by the surprise visit here last May
Day of Fidel Castro. But official

tion than was given the Cuban

Unofficial reports here are thatE
the Soviet commission now in Al-

a hundred million rubles ($111
million) worth of machinery, sup-
plies and general help. This is real1
money, and puts Algeria in the1

A Few Remarks
If verbal commitments count,
Ben Bella has made quite a few

He has supported the limited
nuclear test ban, peaceful coex-
istence and disarmament. In an
answering speech Friday night, he
credited the Soviet Union with
giving great aidnto the Algerian
republic, even during the time it
was fighting the French for free-

had shed blood for Algeria. This
referred to a number who had
been caught by mine explosions
while trying recently to clean out
the vast fields the French had
sown along the frontiers to keep
out supplies and specialists the
Communist states and others were
providing to Algerian rebels.
But Ben Bella has piloted his
newly-liberated country along the
route of nonalignment, and in fact
is getting far more aid from others
than from the Soviet Union.
France has been supplying about
a quarter of a billion dollars a
year to help the country get start-
ed, and about 80 per cent of Al-
geria's trade still is with France.
Ben Bella spent most of the
years of the rebellion in a French
prison, but such bitterness as that
engendered has not prevented his

"The femal gender," an edi-

cigar or me'."
But some males, the paper

STUDENTS If you have Used Books
to Sel -Recad This.
As the Semester end approaches-bringing with it a period of heavy book selling by students-ULRICH'S
would like to review with you their BOOK BUY-BACK POLICY.
Used books fall into several categories, each of which-because of the law of supply and demand-has
its own price tag. Let's explore these various categories for your guidance.
A textbook of current copyrights-used on our campus-and which the Teaching Department involved
has approved for re-use next semester-has the highest market value. If ULRICH'S needs copies of this book
we will offer 50% of the list price for copies in good physical condition. When we have sufficient stock of a title
for the coming semester, ULRICH'S will offer a "WHOLESALE PRICE" which will be explained later in this
article. (THIS IS ONE REASON FOR SELLING ALL YOUR USED BOOKS AT ONCE.)
Some of the above Class I books will be offered which have torn bindings, loose pages or other physical
defects. These will be priced down according to the estimated cost of repair.
Each semester various professors decide to change texts for a given course. These decisions on change of
textbooks are made in echelons of THINKING AND AUTHORITY for above the level of your local book retail-
ers, AND ULRICH'S HAS NO PART IN THE DECISION. (QUITE OFTEN WE HAVE MANY COPIES OF THE
OLD TITLE OF WHICH YOU HAVE ONLY ONE.)
However, ULRICH'S DO enter the picture with our WHOLESALE connections. Somewhere there may be a
professor who will adopt a cast-off book from Michigan. WHOLESALE BOOK JOBBERS take a gamble on this
and offer to buy our over-stock and yours.
If the dropped title is a current edition, and from a well known publisher, the Jobber offer to us is us-
ually 25% of list. AS A SERVICE TO YOU, ULRICH'SWILL BUY THESE DROPPED TITLES FOR WHAT THE
Authors and publishers frequently bring out new editions. When we "get caught" with an old edition,
let's accept the fact that it has no value on the wholesale market, and put it on the shelf as a reference book
or sell it cheap for a bargain reference book.
