vr I I -
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.
4 1.a , ,,
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, URLICH'S will offer a "WHOLESALE PRICE"
which will be explained later in this article. (THIS IS ONE REASON
FOR SELLING ALL YOUR USED BOOKS as soon as you are finished
' with them!)
SCL ASS I PA PE RBOUND
Paperback are classified in two groups: A. Text paperbacks; B. Trade
A. Text Paperbacks will be purchased from you as Class I books
B. Trade Paperbacks would draw an approximate offer of 25% of the-
list price when in excellent condition.
CL ASS IL.
Some of the above Class I or Class II books will be offered which haveM
torn bindings, loose pages, large amounts of highlighting and under-
lining, or other 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
course. These decisons on change of textbooks are made in echelons
-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 which
you have only ONE.)
:However ULRICH'S does enter the picture by having connections with other bookstores
throughout the country. We advertise these discontinued books and sell many of them at schools
-where they are still being used. ULRICH'S does this as a service to you and pays you the best
possible "WHOLESALE PRICE" when you sell them to us with your currently used books.
1CL~ A SSv
m 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.
You will find that you come out best in the long run when you sell ALL your books to ULRICH'S.
ALEXANDRIA, Minn. (AP)- A
grandmother accused of playing a
sexual version of spin-the-bottle with
her family has been convicted of
sexually abusing her grandchildren and
faces up to 25 years in prison.
Alice Cermak, 52, is the sixth adult in
her family to admit or be convicted of
abusing the children, and the
prosecutor says she hopes the latest
conviction shows that children can be
believed as witnesses, just like adults.
"ANY TIME abused children can tell
their story and people believe them, it
helps that child and other abused
children," said Scott County Attorney
Cermak, who ran a bar and grill in
Lonsdale, was accused of having sex
with five grandchildren who ranged in
age from 3 to 10 at the time. She was
found guilty Friday of 13 counts of
The convictions were on four counts
of first-degree sexual abuse, meaning
penetration was involved, and nine
counts of second-degree sexual abuse.
THE DOUGLAS County District
Court jury found her innocent on five
counts of first-degree sexual abuse in-
volving children who did not testify.
The two oldest children, girls aged 11
and 9, testified against Cermak, but
Morris decided against putting the
younger children on the witness stand
"because it was in their best interests."
Mrs. Cermak's attorney, Paul Engh,
said he will appeal. He said Cermak did
not abuse the children, and tried over a
period of years to get psychological
treatment for one of her sons.
Cermak's two sons involved in the
sexual abuse cases have a total of seven
children, including the five who
allegedly were abused. All seven were
taken away from their parents and
placed in foster homes in the summer of
The charges dealt with two specific
instances - one in June 1981 and another
a month alter - when family members
allegedly played "the game," in which
a bottle was spun in a sexual version of
the children's kissing game. The
prosecution maintained the game was a
regular ritual with the Cermaks.

Social Security system to
'crash,' former official says
WASHINGTON- Former Commerce Secretary Peter Peterson says the
Social Security system "is heading for a crash" that could pull down the
nation's economy unless immediate steps are taken to slow the growth of
In an article criticizing the pension system's practices, Peterson says it
"is an arithmetic impossibility" to bring federal deficits under control
without fundamental changes in Social Security.
Peterson's indictment of the system and his ideas for reforming it appear
in the Dec. 2 and Dec. 16 issues of the New York Review of Books. Peterson is
chairman of the board of the New York investment banking firm of Lehman
Brothers Kuhn Loeb Inc.
In the article, Peterson called for a one-year freeze on cost-of-living in-
creases, limited increases in the future and a tax on all benefits in excess of
the amounts retirees paid into the system.
The retirement fund faces a possible shortfall of $150 billion to $200 billion
between now and 1990.
Jet makes emergency landing
BRASILIA, Brazil- A jet carrying more than 40 U.S. TV journalists home
from covering President Reagan's visit clipped an airport tower on takeoff
yesterday, mangling its landing gear, then made a belly landing on the run-
way in a cloud of dust after circling and dumping fuel.
The 47 passengers and 11 crew members slid down inflated emergency
chutes and only a few suffered minor injuries, said U.S. Embassy duty of-
ficer Peggy Jones.
In New York, a spokesman for CBS News, which chartered the jet through
Global International Airways, said there were 44 passengers on the plane.
He said one person had a "bruised elbow" and the others were being
examined by doctors here.
The CBS spokesman said the Boeing 707 had been chartered by CBS to
bring home employees of his network, NBC, ABC and Cable Network News,
who had been covering the presidential visit to Brazil that ended Thursday.
Women demand information
on men missing in Lebanon
BEIRUT, Lebanon- More than 500 Lebanese and Palestinian women,
many of them weeping and holding photographs of missing relatives, rallied
at an Islamic center yesterday to launch a campaign for information on
missing husbands, sons and brothers.
"Oh God, do not let us come back empty-handed," a woman in her mid-30s
said, raising her hands in prayer as she entered the center in the low-income
neighborhood of Aisha Bakkar.
The women gathered after a volunteer committee at the center spent four
days registering the names of 1,324 mission people, mostly men who disap-
peared during or shortly after the September massacres in the Sabra and
Chatilla refugee camps.
Committee members said the women plan a demonstration Monday out-
side the Lebanese Parliament, and will continue their protests until they get
information on their missing relatives.
The women said that according to the mimeographed forms filled out by
relatives, most of the men were last seen in the custody of Christian
militiamen, Lebanese soldiers or Israeli soldiers.
Egyptian extremists go on trial
CAIRO, Egypt- Chanting "God is great" along with anti-American
slogans, 300 Moslem extremists yesterday went on trial for conspiring to
overthrow the Egyptian government and replace it with an Iranian-style
The defendants, ushered into court in group's and locked behind cage-like
docks, repeatedly disrupted court proceedings with anti-Jewish and anti-
American slogans and claims they had been tortured in jail.
One man stripped off his shirt to show signs of torture on his back and
another ripped off a skull cap to show head wounds. Others charged they had
been subjected to electrical shocks and sexual abuse.
Some called on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to "repent."
Holding copies of the Koran, the Moslem holy book, the mob of defendants
sat in docks divided into 12 compartments for the first day of the trial.
Hearings were to resume Monday.
U.S. official caught smuggling
NEW DELHI, India - A U.S. official was sent home yesterday after In-
dian customs inspectors reportedly caught him with $240,000 worth of con-
traband in his suitcases and as much as $2.1 million more in his home.
The U.S. Embassy and the Indian government said Leon Wight, 53, of
Springfield, Va., was under investigation for allegedly smuggling con-
traband into India:, but refused to say what the results of the investigation
Wight, a 28-year veteran of the U.S. Foreign Service, was sent to India two
years ago as comptroller of the Agency for International Development.
The Indian Express newspaper said that Wight's passport showed he
made six brief trips to Hong Kong in recent months.
When he returned from one of those trips Nov. 3, the paper said, customs
agents found about $240,000 worth of undeclared watches, watch parts, elec-
tronic circuits and costly pharmaceuticals in his baggage.
