For Co-op Posts
Freshmen Karla Van Loan and
Norman Olds and sophomores Rob
ert E. Davis, Bob Pearce, Fred
Thompson, Bob Knollin, Barbara
Stevenson, Robert Bodner, John
McNutt and Janice Hughes were
nominated for positions on the
1949-50 University Co-op board
Tuesday at the annual board meet
Outgoing board members are
Don Dole, Ann Woodworth, and
Joe Richards. Barbara Heywood
and Bill Green will continue as
members next year.
Co-op Manager G. D. Henson
outlined the expenditure of the
yearly Co-op membership fee with
the aid of an illustrative chart. 73.8
per cent of the member’s dollar
fee goes for the cost of goods sold,
he said, with textbooks consuming
over half the sales.
Personnel salaries account for
12.7 per cent of the fee, Henson
said. The remainder includes 3.6
for administrative expense, 2.1 for
taxes, and 3.3 for patrons’ rebate.
Four and one-half per cent goes
for net profits.
A net profit of $22,000 was real
ized for the past year, according
to Henson. Of this approximately
half has been set aside for revalu
ation of inventory. Another half is
put aside for possible contingency.
Primarily, Henson said, these are
bookkeeping figures, and a cer
tain amount of the sums is includ
ed in merchandise.

Faculty Considering Proposal
To Halt Military Service Credit
Today's faculty meeting will in-1
elude on its agenda a proposal to
"terminate wartime legislation
granting credit in military sci
ence and physical education for
training received in military ser
According to Dean R. W. Leigh
ton of the school of health and
physical education, the change, if
approved, would not affect veter
ans now enrolled in the Univer
sity, on those discharged before
spring, 1949. However, veterans
discharged after this spring would
be required to enroll in regular
physical education, health, and
military science courses required
for junior certificate and gradua
“Our wartime provision,” ex
plained Dean Leighton, “was to aid
veterans who had undergone stren
uous physical and military train
ing. However, conditions have
changed. Men now get a different
type of training, and are in the ser
vice for a shorter period of time.”
The faculty committee which
has been studying the plan ia
headed by Paul R. Washke of the
physical education school.
Also on the faculty meeting cal
endar are a motion which would
allow graduate students to register
in the University courses for less
than the number of term hours re
quired in the catalog, and the nom
ination of candidates for member
ship on the advisory council.
