These texts were selected from
more than 100 unsold books not

Lillian Rickel, who supervises servic-
ing of Lending Library books, on the
basis of their condition and their cur-
rent use in University courses.

been taken out for the remainder of

these books from the Exchange," Mrs.

afford to buy all their texts are ap-

has any books he wishes to contrib-
ute to our collection, such gifts, will
always be welcome."
The Lending Library will buy
books to add to the present supply if
a request for one which is not avail-

conducted for students overseas.
Filed with OPA
No applications for rental and food
price ceiling adjustments have been
filed this year with the Detroit office
of the OPA by University League
houses, according to Hicks Griffiths,
Detroit OPA official.
Houses charging prices above those
that prevailed during the period of
April 4-10, 1943, without having first
obtained an adjustment from the
OPA, are violating OPA regulations
and may be subjected to legal action,
Such legal action, involving suits
for three times the overcharge in
some cases, must be instigated by the
person overcharged during a thirty
day period immediately following the
violation, he pointed out. Following
that period the OPA and claimant
may file a joint complaint.
A few League houses did file appli-
cations for adjustments during the
spring of 1944 but failed to supply
necessary data at that time. Those
houses could ask to have their cases
reopened in the event they are
