MSA
Continued from Page 1
MSA's coursepack store would eliminate the high costs that
students pay at other coursepack distributors because students
would just pay for the cost of the paper and the cost of the
,copies instead of paying for overhead costs. The store would be
open the first two months of each semester and would operate
): - of the basement of the Michigan Union Bookstore.
Coursepack copies would cost $ .03-.04 per page.
Nagrant also explained that the delay in the operation of the
studetit-run coursepack store is partly due to complications itr
finding an affordable copy machine to do the job. MSA has
.been working with Lanier Copy Company.
Lanier, Copy Company "won't sign a contract with us unless
it's for a year. And that contract works out to $10-20,000 for
I^"ofle year," Nagrant said.
It would be difficult for the coursepack store to put out
enough coursepacks in such a short time to pay for the copi-
er, Nagrant said.
"One of the negotiations we're going to try is to get
coursepacks for 115 and 116 level math," Nagrant said. The
earnipgs from the math coursepacks "would sustain the copi-

er alone. Right now it's all about cutting costs"
LSA first-year student Brian Reich, who is working with
Nagrant to organize the coursepack store, said MSA had every
intention of having the copier ready by this semester.
"The goal was to get a high-powered copier in our hands
and in place in time for the beginning of the semester," said
Reich, an LSA representative and vice-chair of the Campus
Governance Committee. "It's a tough thing because these
copiers are enormous and enormously expensive."
MSA representatives initially overestimated the altruism of
the copier companies, Reich said.
"Admittedly, at first when we went to Xerox and a couple
of the others, we were hoping they'd be really generous and
just give (a copier) to us," Reich said. "That would be ideal:"
Reich said MSA has the support and commitment from
some University professors, but MSA still ran into obstacles.
"It's a lengthy process to convince these professors to change
the way that they're doing things," Reich said. "It's basically the
kind of process where you have to sit down with each one indi-
vidually and explain the merits of the coursepack store"
Despite the obstacles that have delayed the opening of the
store, Nagrant said he is confident that cheaper coursepacks
will be available to students by the fall.

Foundation pledges $55M to schools
WASHINGTON - Saying every child needs a place to go after school,
President Clinton announced yesterday that a Michigan foundation has
pledged $55 million over five years for after-school programs.
The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation in Flint, which has long been asso
ciated with after-school programs, is providing the funding to help commt
nities start or expand after-school programs for children from lower-income
families.
The funding is aimed at boosting the quality of such programs by provid-
ing technical assistance and training. It comes as the Clinton administration
is asking Congress for $1 billion over the next five years for after-school
programs.
The administration's request represents a significant increase in such funding.

ha- school programs. The new request would help some 4,000 after-school programs
