late in September, are being felt on
the Oregon campus in the form of
prolonged textbook shortages.

Because of urgent demand for
dictionaries the Co-op saved several
weeks’ delay by ordering a shipment
of Funk and Wagnall dictionaries
direct from the bindery without
waiting for them to be indexed.
General psychology texts have
arrived at the Co-op in adequate
quantity to handle the demand.
Shipments expected to arrive
next week include texts in account

Brook, Cunliffe and MacCracken,
Economics by Gemmill and Blod

for English by Perrinn.
