will not be made until after a
complete audit early this summer.
By doing this, he said, the board
will be able to find out exactly
how moch money the co-op has
the audit the board will meet to
before it starts to return it. After
the audit, the board will then
decide upon the amount of the re
fund and the checks will then be
sent to members, Henson said.
Another Change
Another change which will take
place next year will be that stu
dents will be asked to save their
purchase tickets until the end of
the year instead of turning them
in at the time of the purchase. The
present system, Henson said, has
proved too expensive as it has been
necesary to have several employees
filing the tickets, adding about
$4,000 to the cost for operating
the store.
With the side remark that this
year the total sales of the co-op
are expected to hit near the half
million dollar mark, McClain pre
sented the store's financial report
showing the costs and the profit
of the store.
Out of every dollar purchase, he
said, 21.7 cents are used for store
expenses, 13.2 cents are used for
salaries, 3.4 cents are used for ad
ministrative expenses, 4.2 cents
are used for taxes and 78.3 cents
are used to purchase the goods.
