Co-op members

convene in A2

Volunteer commitment and.
cooperative education are among the
issues under discussion this weekend as
co-op members from all over the United
States and Canada gather for the an-
nual cooperative institute being held in
the Union.
North American Students of
Cooperation, a non-profit organization
based in Ann Arbor, is sponsoring the
event. NASCO acts as a resource for co-
ops all over North America, according
to coordinator Tom Laichas.
This weekend, NASCO is host to more
than 400 members of food, housing, and
energy co-ops and others interested in
working and living together to achieve
mutual social and economic goals.
This story was written by Daily
reporters Greg Davis, Joyce Friedeti,
and Pam Kramer.

Workshops began on Friday and will
continue throughout the weekend.
Twenty-eight workshops were held
Saturday, including:
Luther Buchele of Ann Arbor's Inter-
Cooperative Council and Jim Jones
from College House Cooperatives in
Austin, Texas gave an overview of the
history of co-operative housing in the
United States.
Buchele began by describing the
"Golden Age of Co-ops," which he said
occurred around 1880-1890. It was then,
Buchele explained, that book co-ops
began springing up at universities like
Harvard and Yale that enabled studen-
ts to buy textbooks cheaply.
Jones covered co-op development
durinj the 1960s and '70s. "Most of the

development during this period oc-
curred in places where the idea of a co-
op was already in place; existing co-ops
were just further developed," he ex-
NASCO membership chairperson
Francie Ferguson led this workshop,
which explored various methods of
assigning work responsibilities to food
and housing co-op members.
Ferguson said work systems should
be looked at with three goals in mind:
" A management system for getting
tasks accomplished;
" A mechanism for getting members
to know each other; and,
* A mechanism for education of
members in various skills.
"The skills you learn are very impor-
tant. I know people who have gotten
jobs as cooks because they learned to
cook in the co-op," Ferguson said.
Participants discussed ways in which
their co-ops assigned jobs. One
Michigan State University co-op mem-
ber said his group put up a list of
cooking and cleaning jobs each week,
for which people volunteered.
Still another co-op member talked
about Neill-Wycik Co-op in Toronto,
Canada. Neill-Wycik is a 22-story high-

rise co-op of 650 residents. "We don't
really have a work system, since
everyone has his own apartment," he
Skip Kutz from the Cooperative
College of Canada led a workshop on
cooperative education in American
public schools, arguing that the
philosophy of standard schools is
detrimental to the people's well-being.
The cooperative curriculum places
more emphasis on practical topics and
experiential learning, such as how to
use credit cards, in addition to reading
textbooks Kutz said.
Lynn MacDonald, general manager
of the Arcata Cooperative of northern
California, described the fundamental
differences between the co-op grocery
store and the traditional grocery store.
"We buy (wholesale) for the con-
sumer, not for profit," MacDonald said.
She said that product mark-up is 25
percent on the average, with very com-
petitive markups on such items as cof-
fee, milk, and eggs.

MADISON, W.Va.-A rescue team
yesterday found the bodies of five
miners killed in a methane gas ex-

Strong fumes forced the searchers to
