Further, customers have com-

Dave Rock, Cellar book manager:
points to two reasons for this.

In January of 1970, the bookstore

books.
As Wilson explained, "Although
it is too early to give figures on

generated a profit and that the
pattern will continue."
"We were faced with a sign.fi-

starting any business but we are
optimistic that losses will only be
temporary," he says.

We Were Not Ready for You-And We Apologize!
During registration and the first two days of classes almost 15,000
people contacted 76-GUIDN, the University's 24-Hour, Counseling,
Information, and Referral Service (this is almost one third of the total
calls GUIDE received all last year). Many of you called and were not
responded to because of an overload on our lines and the impossibility
of GUIDE counselors being able to handle all the incoming calls on a
new telephone system.
You can help yourself and others calling GUIDE if you will use
University Centrex operators for faculty numbers and departmental
t listings, and Student Locator Service for addresses and telephone num-
4 bers of students.
Centrex Telephone Information: Dial "0" (outside University
phones: 764-1817).
Student Locator: 764-2330.
These two numbers can provide you with more accurate and current
telephone listings of faculty, staff and students than GUIDE.
We feel very bad about those of you who were inconvenienced by
GUIDE's problems during the past week, but now that things have
settled down and some of the "bugs" have been worked out we hope
you will feel free to call GUIDE with your questions and problems.
We appreciate your cooperation and thanks for bearing with us.
