SGC Committee Asks
Changes in Bicycle Sale



(Continued from Page 4)

A report on the bicycle auction
was presented by the Student Ac-
tivities Committee to the Student
Government Council at its meet-
ing Wednesday night.
The auction, which was held as
planned Sept. 26 on the loading
dock behind the Student Publica-
tions Bldg., netted a profit of
$46.46, which was given to the
Student Activities Scholarship
"The main objective of the bike
auction is to provide a service for
the students," said Nan Adams,
'60, chairman of the Student Ac-
tivities Committee. "We of SGC
are representatives of the students
and try to serve in any way we
To Give Opportunity'
The purposes of the auction
were to give the students an op-
portunity to sell their bicycles at
a better price than they could ob-
tain from, the local merchants,
and to offer students an opportu-
nity to purchase their bicycles at
a reasonable price.
The first function was fulfilled
since all but two sellers received
checks after the auction which av-
eraged almost 50 per cent more
than the appraisal price for his
Improvement was needed in the
area of the purchasing of bicycles,
because they sold for more than
they were worth. This was esti-
mated by their appraised value.
Competition Keen
One reason for the prices being
too high is that there were too
few bicycles for too many people,
and conisequently the competition
for them was keen. Also, most of
the students apparently had little
or no conception of the worth of a
The SGC auction gave the stu-
dent a wider market for his bike.
The bike auction operated in the
area of 'student to student and
not into the area of new bikes.
Upon the basis of the results
of the auction, the Student Activ-
ities Committee made their rec-
They asked for an increase from
$100 to $150 for expenditures since
their allotment was insufficient to
run two effective publicity cam-
paigps and to handle the expenses
of the auction.

A request was made for SOC to
take from 10 per cent to 15 per
cent out of the selling price to
cover the increase in total expen-
Recommend Changes
Changes in procedure of the
collection and sale of the bicycles,
similar to that of the Student
Book Exchange in- collecting and
selling books, was recommended.
The bicycles would be collected,
as before, during the final exam-
ination period in June.
In the fall during the after-
noons of the first week of classes,
students would be able to pur-
chase the bikes for the price pre-
viously set by the seller. All the
bikes which had not yet been pur-
chased plus those which students
brought in during the week would
be auctioned in' the same manner
as this year.
Advocates Change
The committee felt that this
change of procedure would better
fulfill its purposes. The buyers
would have a chance to carefully
examine the bicycles and to pur-
chase one without the competi-
tion and pressure of the auction.
Also, this procedure would allow
the handling of more bicycles.
The report of the committee
was received by SGC, but the rec-
ommendations were not consid-
ered, since it was felt that such
discussion should be held at a
more appropriate time.
Comments were offered, how-
ever, by members of SGC.
One was that the program itself
is adequate in fulfilling its pur-
pose of acting as the agent who
receives a considerably less fee
than the Ann Arbor dealers do.
However, the method in which the
auction was held- might not have
been adequate.
Another comment was that the
function of the bike auction is
similar to the Student Book Ex-
change in saving the students
money, but this purpose was not
adequately being carried out. It
was not possible to have saved the
students money and make a profit
at the same time. If an outline of
functioning similar to the current
one is adopted, it will not be ade-
quate for the aim of the Student
Activities Committee.
