Annual at Discount
Special Rate to
Charles Skade, Business Manager, Announces Copies
Will Be Printed to Correspond With Orders
Made; No Extra Books Available.
Offering the lowtst price in the history of Nebraska's year
book, the 1933 Cornhusker will bepti its initial sales campaign
Monday morning, Oetober 31 and continue until Saturday, No
vember 5. During the week a discount reduction to those who
pay cash will be allowed, which will bring the pricu down to
the figure of $4.25.
Charles Skade, business man
ager, in commenting on the open
ing sales drive said, "This year
' the students of the university will
be given the same high grade
year book at a new low figure.
The price is a special sale price, to
be offered only during the coming
week, after which time the dis
count will not be given.
"The $4.25 price includes the
discount, as has been done in the
sales campaigns during the past
several years when a cash pay
ment is made at the time the or
der is placed."
Use Installment Plan.
Another plan is being offered the
purchasers. "Realizing that many
students will find it hard to dig up
the necessary cash, we are going to
allow those who wish, to purchase
their copies of the book on the in
stallment plan. This same idea has
been used for the past two years
and has been found to work to
the advantage of both the Corn
husker and the students."
The idea involves a one dollar
down payment, one dollar on De
cember 1, an additional dollar on
January 15 and the balance of one
dollar and a half when the book
is delivered.
Skade pointed out that when
the book comes off the press next
snrinp the number of copies
printed will be determined by theH
number or oraers ianuu. u""i
words, it will be impossible to ob
tain a 1933 Cornhusker unless an
order has been placed for it. Sales
will be continued, of course, after
the opening sale closes next Satur
day, but not with the ten percent
Skade Uurges Purchase
The business manager asserted
that inasmuch as the profit-sharing
plan that the Cornhusker is
inaugurating this year makes it
possible for such a low price to
be offered the students would do
well to take advantage of the
possible saving during this week's

the next play Steve Hokuf made it
a first down on the 28-yard line on

Mathis was dumped for a six yard
