SBX Selling
Of Volumes
To Continue
By GAIL EVANS
Students can saveup to 20 per
cent on text books at the Student
Book Exchange, a Student Gov-
ernment Council book transfer
service.
Starting last Wednesday, the
SBX, headed by Chris Cohen, '64,
began buying and selling text
books. Today and tomorrow it will
be open from 12:30 p.m. until 5
p.m. in the basement of the SAB.
Next week sales will be trans-
acted 2 to 5 p.m.
Set Prices
Students bring used books to the
exchange and establish their own
asking price. SBX acts as a trans-
fer agent or middle man for the
student by displaying the books on
sale, Cohen explained.
During an organized return per-
iod, students either. get the pro-
ceeds or can claim their unsold
book. Sales usually depend on de-
mand and the reasonability of the
student's asking price, Cohen said.
Unclaimed books are forfeited
to the SBX and are sold in the
Fish Bowl.
The SBX keeps 10 per cent of
the proceeds to defray operating
expenses and the student receives
the other 90 per cent.
Last year the SBX doubled sales
with proceeds totalling $3,000.
Cohen hopes that the intake will
reach $4,500 this year, with stu-
dent support and the help of
three assistant, managers, Pat
Cook, '65; Pete Eisenger, '64, and
Ken Stiebor, '65.
Not a Store
At present the SBX cannot sell
books or supplies out-right be-
cause of a Regents bylaw which
states that "it is not and will not
be the policy of the Regents to en-
courage or approve the establish-
ment of a cooperative mercantile
organization within the University
buildings or under circumstances
that will give such enterprises
special advantages in the way of
lower rents, freedom from taxation
or other cooperation on the part
of the University."
In the past, student groups have
attempted to get around the Re-
gents' policy. The Union consider-
ed establishing a book store in
1958, but that attempt was
squelched when the Regents re-
affirmed their policy, originally
established in the 1920's.
At the end of the fall and spring
semesters SBX representatives vis-
it residence halls to collect books
students wish to sell.

A Peace Corps contingent of 55
members, trained through the fa-
cilities of the University, will trav-
el to Thailand at the request of
the Thai government.
The students will join 45 mem-
bers previously trained at the Uni-
versity, who are already in active
service there.
On Sept. 20, the new contingent
will assemble in Seattle, Wash.,
preparatory to leaving by air to
arrive at Bangkok, the capital of
Thailand, on Sept. 22.
While in Thailand, the corps
members will find much to busy
Niehuss To Headh
Charity Campaign
University Executive Vice-Presi-'
dent Marvin L. Niehuss has been
appointed to head the University
division of the United Fund cam-
paign.
Niehuss was appointed along
with Edward M. Sherburne, who
heads the utilities division, and Dr.
William E. Brown III, who will
head the St. Joseph Mercy Hospi-'
tal division.
Prof. Robert A. Bowman of the
school of public health will serve
as vice-chairman of the University
division. The division has a goal of
$130,000.

themselves with, including instruc-
tion in English, vocational agri-
culture, and physical education, as
well as laboratory technology.
The training program in* which
the members took part was rigor-
ous. The average student spent 65
hours a week attending seminars,
lectures, and laboratories with
members of the University facul-
ty. They were instructed in every-
thing from first aid to the difficult
Thai language.
Second Marriage
Gerald L. Paul, 24, of Bourbon,
Mo., and Dian M. Deming, 22, of
Bronxville, NY., were married
Sept. 1, becoming the second cou-
ple to exchange marital vows while
still in training at the University
for work with the Corps. It was
through their mutual efforts as
members of the organization that
the -two met.
Following the close of the train-
ing program, the students attend-
ed a banquet at the Michigan
Union. Present were the Thai am-
bassador to the United States, His,
Excellency V i s u t r Arthayukti,
Peace Corps training director Dr.
Joseph Kaufmann, and University
officials.
Kaufmann praised the efforts of
the Peace Corps, saying, "I hope
you (the trainees) will never un-
derestimate the response the Peace
Corps. idea has evoked here and.
abroad."

By MALINDA BERRY
Americans, regardless of wheth-
er they live in cities, suburbs or
the country, pick the out-of-doors
when they seek recreation.
However, the activities they
choose are dependent to a certain
extent on age, income, education
and other social factors, the Uni-
versity Survey Research Center
reports.
Participation in outdoor recrea-
tion rises with income up to the
$7,500-10,000 income group, shows
no further rise and even a slight
decline thereafter, the Center's
national studies for the Outdoor
Recreation Resources Review indi-
cate.
Some Limitation
"Apparently in the lower income
brackets lack of money now im-
poses some limitation on outdoor
recreational activity," the SRC
project directors Eva L. Mueller
and Gerald Gurin report.
"We would therefore expect an
increase in participation rates over
time as more people move into the
income brackets over w $7,500.
Money is not the only factor at
work, however."
"It has been said that over the
past two decades the middle and
upper middle classes have been
leaders in the trend toward a new
life style, characterized by infor-
mal living.
More Participation
"Outdoor recreation is part of
this new life style. In the next few
years, as lower income people be-
come more affluent, as the level
of education rises and more people
are engaged in skilled occupations,
it is likely there will be more wide-
spread participation in this new
way of living" barring drastic
change in popular taste.
They report that women are less
active participants in outdoor rec-
reation than men. Less than half
of all women (48 per cent) re-
ported that they engage in more
than four activities, compared to
61 per cent of men. Only fishing
and hunting, however, are clearly
To Examine
Brain, Disease
"The Brain in Relation to Sys-
temic Disease" will be the topic
of a two-day conference to be held
at the University's medical cen-
ter starting tomorrow. About 500
physicians and scientists from
twenty states are expected to be
present.

"masculine" activities, the re-
searchers report.
Young People
As would appear obvious young
people are much more active than
older people, however, the differ-
ence is not entirely due to loss of
physical skills and energy.
"The older people of today differ
from the older people of tomorrow
regarding experience with outdoor
recreation in their youth.
"In the present older generation
there are many people who never
learned to swim or fish, and who
never went camping in their youth.
Such activities are seldom started
in middle age," the analysts said.
African States
Send Request
For Athletes
Newly independent African na-
tions have invited United States
athletes to participate through the
Peace Corps in the training of re-
gional and national athletic teams.
Boxers, wrestlers, Judo experts,
swimmers, basketball players, and
track and field athletes, both men
and women, Are needed.
Fifty Positions
About 50 positions are open for
athletes who have participated in
college sports, though they need
not be college graduates.
African government officials vis-
ualize sponsoring sports activities
in their countries as an aid to the
development of unity and cohesive
national feeling.
Common Bond
The common bond of sports in-
terest and activities may unify
those peoples whb are tradition-
ally accustomed to decentralized
tribal living, and may help to de-,
velop national loyalty from the old
"tribal loyalties.
In addition, they hope that
sports activities may prove to be
an especially effective method of
incorporating national y o u t h
groups into national endeavor.
The enthusiasm generated by
sports may thus be channeled into
a stronger sense of national iden-
tity.
Leading sports organizations
and associations are contributing
knowledge and experience to Peace
Corps officials in administering the
training program.
