The Union's Problem
Of Fixing Prices. *a
W E HESITATE in making policy
recommendations to the Union,
because, in the past, the Union has not always
welcomed even obviously good suggestions from
The Daily. Nevertheless, since the Union is a
student club and since The Daily is a student
publication, we feel that suggestions, particularly
regarding its business policy, are entirely within
our scope. The more so as the business depart-
ment of the Union is in the hands of a profes-
sional manager and, consequently, the student
angle is, perhaps, sometimes forgotten in the rush
of big business.
We sincerely hope that in the future officials
of the Union will co-operate more willingly than
they did in the recent barber shop price cam-
paign. Following an editorial in The Daily, barber
shops in the city immediately cut their prices to
35 cents. The Union cut its price to only 45 cents.
When asked why the barber shops did not
come down to the agreed price of local shops one
Union official said, "The Daily has gone off half-
cocked." Another said, "We can't cut our prices
now. It would look as if The Daily forced us to
come down."

A PPROXIMATELY 300 student hold-
ers of deferred tuition notes were
granted time extensions at the meeting of the
Board of Regents two weeks ago. Announce-1
ments were published daily, immediately follow-
ing the time grants, notifying these note holders
to report to Herbert G. Watkins, assistant secre-
tary of the University. New notes designed to
take the place of the old ones and expressly
prepared to take care of further time extensions
were to be secured through him. They would cost
nothing. They were made possible simply to assist
the embarrassed students.
