have the widest selection of used books," com-
plained Cates.
Cates suggested that PIRGIM went into the
survey with "preconceived results."
Although Follett's, until this fall, knocked off
five per cent across the board on hard-covered
texts along with its competitors, it has dis-
continued the practice "to avoid a deficit, or
just breaking even," according to Cates.
"UNLESS THE STORE is subsidized or is
willing to sell books on a break-even basis, then
you just can't discount," he'said.
"As time goes on and costs go up," he pre-
dicted, "I think the Cellar will have to be
subsidized or else discontinue the discount."
But Dennis Webster, manager of the Cellar,
said "it's unfortunate that we can't discount the
books even more than we do."
"NO STORE CAN discount books enough if

the publishers don't give us a generous enough
discount," he said.
To criticism that the Cellar can afford a larger
discount because of the $5 assessment for the
student bookstore on all tuition bills, Webster
replied that the charge was discontinued last
year, and that at least 40 per cent of those
students charged the fee have reclaimed it upon
graduation.
"It (the assessed fee) was just for working
capital," said Webster.
BOB FOSTER, general manager of Ulrich's,
described the survey as fair, and felt his store
compared favorably with the Cellar.
"Traditionally we sold at list price just as
Follett's does now, but when the Cellar started
discounting five per cent, we had to, too, to
stay in competition."
"But I know we people at book stores are
considered nasty people," he added. "It's
