PolI. Sci. helps MSA
By LISA CRUMRINE
The Political Science department is giving students
an extra chance this term to participate in the bi-
annual rite of filling out course evaluation forms.
The department has agreed to become the first LSA
department to hand out Michigan Student Assembly
Course Encounters evaluation forms to students in its
In the forms, students are asked to grade their
professors and courses. The information is then com-
piled by class and printed in Course Encounters. The
first edition of the student-supplied booklet was
published one year ago.
"WE WERE asked to use the forms by the
Michigan Student Assembly," said Professor Samuel

Barnes, chairman of the political science depar-
tment. "We were sympathetic to their request
because we're involved with questions of survey
sampling in our department. If we're going to have
MSA evaluations of our department, we would rather
see them filled out by all students, rather than by a
minority of them.
"We're using the MSA forms to help MSA do what
they're doing better-so the results will be more
reliable," he added.
MSA hopes to persuade other LSA-departments to
introduce the forms into their classrooms, according
to MSA Course Encounters committee chairman
"Originally, our evaluations were intended to ap-
pear on the forms done by theCenter for Research on
Learning and Teaching, but there was some con-
fusion, and the questions weren't printed on their
form," Kuehn said.
The CRLT evaluation forms are used by several
LSA departments. Next semester the MSA questions
probably will appear on the CRLT forms, Kuehn said.
"We were hoping that other departments would
follow our step in using the forms," Barnes said. "We
were also hoping the MSA questions would be part of
the CRLT form which our department uses."
Other departments are expected to use the MSA
evaluations in class next term, Kuehn added.
Barnes said the political science department will
continue to use its own evaluation forms.

*ecipients of Fulbright scholarships are
riding to the rescue of the prestigious
award and other cultural exchange
programs facing President Reagan's
budget ax. So far, they have made some
progress in convincing Congress.
"Fulbright alumni and other scholars,
argue that the exchange programs are
a good way to educate future foreign
leaders about America.

restore all the cuts, but also would add
an extra $9 million -for the Fulbright
scholarships and direct the ad-
ministration to spend the money. A bill
restoring the cuts has already passed

his cuts stick. Congressional sources
say they're getting no signals on

- NAMED FOR former Sen. J. William
Fulbright, the scholarships have
brought about 85,000 students from
other countries to the United States sin-
ce World War II and have sent about
45,000 Americans abroad to study.
The Arkansas Democrat, 'who was
chairman of the Senate Foreign

says the.program gives foreign studen-
ts, many of whom become leaders, an
understanding of America. And he once
testified that he doubts the late
President Lyndon Johnson would have
escalated the Vietnam War had John-
son been a Fulbright alumni and known'
more about Asia.
"If he had lived in Asia for a year un-
der, this program, he would not have
engaged in that conflict, I believe,"
Fulbright told a House committee three
years ago. "This can apply to anybody
in a powerful position. I think it's one of
the reasons there is so much sympathy

Wolpe said five of Zimbabwe's 15
Cabinet members are Fulbright alum-

The ICA says the cuts would
eliminate scholarships in 61 pf the 120
countries in the program, wiping out
nearly all in Africa and many in Asia,
the Middle East and South America.
Fewer of the European scholarships
would be eliminated.
RYAN SAID Europe is not being
favored. Instead, he- explained,
longstanding treaties and agreements
prevent cuts there.

The center said the women are
helping to keep enrollments on the rise.
Other factors are a peak in 1981 in the
number of 18- to 24-year-olds, "the last

If you -have Used Books
to Sell-Read 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
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
I ,' ~
CLASS 1. CLOTHBOUND
A textbook of current copyright - used on our campus - and which the
Teaching Department involved has approved for re- use in upcoming
semesters- has the highest market value. If ULRICH'S needs copies
of this book we will'offer a minimum of 50% off 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!)
CLASS II. PAPERBOUND
Paperback are classified in two groups: A. Text Paperbacks; B. Trade
A. Text Paperbacks will be purchased from you as Class I books above.
B. Trade.Paperbacks would draw an approximate offer of 25% of the
list price when in excellent condition.
Some of the above Class I or Class 11 books will be offered which have /
torn bindings, loose pages,large amounts of highlighting and under-
lining, orother physical defects. These will be priced down according
to the estimated cost of repair or saleability.
Each semester various professors decide to change text for a given

of THINKING AND AUTHORITY far above the level of your local book retailers, 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 does enter the picture by having connections with over 600 other bookstores
throughout the country. We advertise these discontinued books and sell many of them at schools
where theyare still being used. ULRICH'S does this as a service to you and pays you the BEST
POSSIBLE price when you sell them to us with your currently used books.
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 fora bargain reference book.
You will find that you come out best in the long run when you sell ALL your books to ULRICH'S.
