N6table examples of the vast success that co-
operative stores have had in other universities -
Dartmouth, Harvard, Stanford-would seem to
point toward nothing other than success should
Michigan attempt the management of one.
The co-operative store means that students them-
selves share in the profits derived from all sales of
goods to them. It would eventually mean that
students get all their purchases at nearly the actual
wholesale cost, the only surplus on .the wholesale
price being the cost of upkeep and management of
the store. The manager of such a store is usually
one who can devote his entire time to it, and to
whom a salary is paid.
Usually, at the start, the store-will need capital.
The best advertisement in the world is to give the
undergraduate body the opportunity to buy shares
in the corporation and let them* know that the cor-
poration will thus be entirely owned by them, A;
certain percentage of the net profits each year
would go to the stockholders as dividends. Another
percentage would go to the patrons of the store as
dividends on their purchases based on the. total
amount each had bought during the fiscal year. And
another percentage would be used to buy back and
to place in the treasury of the corporation out-
standing stock. Through this sinking fund the cor-
poration would eventually own itself, at which
time it would be placed in the hands of a board of
trustees composed of alumni, faculty and under-I
graduates. When the association owns itself and
is placed in the hands of the board of trustees, then
all the profits go to the profit sharing members.
The advantages of such a system are+ numerous.
The co-operative store would give students a
chance at actual business management; it would be
one more campus activity, and one which many stu-
dents would enter who at present are not inter-
ested in any particular thing. It would, promote
the feeling of mutual interest between students
themselves, in business as well as other relation-
ships. Lastly, it would be fair to the student, low-
ering the exaggerated prices of the day and return-
ing to him the profit derived from his individual
There are disadvantages, of course, but so far
as we have been able to determine they are only
the disadvantages that might be' overcome without
great difficulty by any interested student body.
The Telescope
The following pathetic little ballad entitled
"Making Both Ends Meet" was penned by an in-
mate of the insane asylum at Pontiac. Any student
who has lain awake nights pondering over the in-
creased cost of candy, flowers, taxi fares, and'
other necessities can readily understand how worry-
ing over the H.. C. of L. put the authir where he is
The baby rolls upon the floor,
Kicks up his tiny feet,
And pokes his toes into his mouth,
Thus making both ends meet.
