ing. It costs $7,781.40 to print 131
issue of 2.700 copies each.
Contrary to popular belief, the
ASUO does not "clean up” on its
concert series.
Artists Come High
This year's series is expected to
cost §8,408 and to clear only an
estimated $7,000 in order that stu
dent body card holders may attend
their performances without extra
expense. Although expenses of pre
senting these concerts total §1,
540.00. the main cost is in artist’s
fees which average nearly $1,000
and total §6,500 for seven events.
Canoe fete, homecoming, student
directory, the check room, class
fund carrying charges, and the
Oregon high school band concert
all produce some income. (Band
concert expenses outstrip income.)
Activities which contribute no
income include forensics, women's
rifle team, Philomelete, band, or
chestra, associated women stu
dents, and women's athletic asso
