Bookstore Predicament ...
It was rather disappointing to return from Easter va
cation to find that no action had been taken by the Regents
on authorizing the University book store to carry suopnes
other than textbooks. In view of the fact that the students
do favor installing such a business at the bookstore and
that no obvious reason exists for not setting it up, the
Regents must have some other motive for not acting on tne
Tiro to sal.
It wasn't that they didn't know that a supply business
had been suggested for the University bookstore. Members
of Regents had been approached on the issue, dut. no one
was willine to bring it up at the vacation meeting
The inertia or deliberate refusal to consider the issue,
whichever the case may be, has left the bookstore in a fad
predicament, because only the Regents can authorize the
MtAblishment of such a business.
It remains for some outside individual or organization
to see that the issue gets proper consideration by this Uni
vprsitv directine croup. Last year the Student Council man
ifested its interest in the matter, and it seems logical, if this
interest has survived, that the Council should take up the
Issue ASTcUXl
The Council has a list, compiled last year, of 20 typical
supplies carried by college bookstores tnrougnout uie coun
trv Tt investio-ated the purchasing cost of supplies, pricing
the items on its list from several suppliers and comparing
them with retail prices which were being cnargea Dy iocai
stores. 4.x. -t
Tim nnlv obstacle which the Council met was that, it
the University bookstore were to carry supplies, -it would
need more space to operate man it naa m 11s iocuuuii m
the Temple. This set-back to the Council's plan was obvi
ous, since the store hardly could establish a supply stock
when it scarcely had enough room to handle a book busi
ness. But this obstacle no longer exists. The University
bookstore is moving to a larger location in Temporary B
where it will have the space to operate a supply business.
And since there is no other obvious objection to the
bookstore's purchasing supply stocks and getting a supplv
business going, it should be tne uouncu a tasx xo see uia
the matter is broueht up before the Regents.
Council investigation has shown that the University
bookstore, doesn't even share student trade equally with
the other campus bookstores. If the store is gomg to insure
its own self sufficiency, meeting book-purchasing, manag
erial and other operational costs on a non-profit basis, it
will need the additional source of revenue which a supply
business would bring. Operational costs now come indirectly
out of the student's pocket, for the store at present is sub
sidized by the University. The students naturally are eager
to put the store on a self-supporting basis, and a suprfy
business would contribute to the store's ability to pay for
A supply-carrying University bookstore, centrally lo
cated, promises evident advantages for all students. As a
representative voice for the student body, the Student
Council has the task of pressing for the establishment of a
supply business.

With all the hustle and sup

the initial planning of a large
exposition, something is bound to

marked it was just like home.
WITH REGARD to the new Ag
Union. ...
I was over at the agronomy
department and saw Dr. Good
ding about it all. In a quiet
manner of speaking that belongs
to him alone, the doctor related
just what the present standing is.
He said: "Well, we've had to
fight for the thing . . . are we
going to linger around now, or
we going to be ready to go?
At a future student rally,
whether to linger or go forward
will be thrashed by all Ag

we young squirts knew of all the
sweat and fight that has been
endured in the past, we would
see that we have it easy going
now. All we have to do is okay

ing. Sounds easy, doesn't it?
Another spokesman said this
with regard to just what the
Union will stand for if and when
it is built. An adequate Union is
needed on Ag, if for no other
reason than to serve as a "Hub"
to pull a pretty much divided
campus into a common meeting
place, and thus it is hoped, a
closer knit campus.
Each of these talks pretty
straight to me. And. come to
think of it, I haven't yet heard
one dissenting view.

The men also can be identified

Coronet magazine brings a breath of fresh air with its
current article, "Sex on the Campus." Reporting on a
survey of 250 America i colleges and universities, the mag
azine points out that sex standards on the campuses are
among the highest in the country. The article says the
poll reveals high moral standards among college students,
in addition to a "sober and intelligent" attitude toward
sex. With the current attention on sex tragedies in this
area, it is nice, for a change to get a sane, over-all picture
of college morality as presented by Coronet
Ag campus elections "as usual" are now being readied.
Filings for Ag Exec board, Coll-Agri Fund board and
Farmers Fair board are now open. Student interest in the
filings and the election is the only guarantee that well-
qualified, interested people will continue to serve the Ag!
students on the trio of governing bodies for that campus.
A current "hot potato,' loyalty oaths, continue to
bring cries of protest currently from the faculty of Cali
fornia university. Reaction to the oath, asked by the uni
versity's Board of Regents, has been reportedly overwhelm
ingly in opposition. The faculty members and students
have even taken to writing poems in firing on tbe direc
tive. Communism's threat to civil liberties thus continues
to garner headlines from coast to coast, in both political
and academic circles.

Are you tired of classes? Does
your table tennis game need in
spiration? Does your gal like aft
ernoon dates? The solution is
simple. Plan to arrive at the
Union ballroom at 4 p.m. today
and see a game of table tennis
played by Lou Pagliaro.
In addition to the exhibition
game which Pagliaro will play
with his tour partner, Hamilton
Canning, he. also has a trick shot
routine which is guaranteed to
make audiences blink their eyes
in disbelief.
Pagliaro plays a match with an I
imaginary opponent whi'Mi re
quires him to run back ai forth
from one end of the fcible to the
other, returning his .shots. An
other stunt is blowing a ball back
and forth across the net with
unerring accuracy.

lightning called the ball.
One amazing fact about Pag
liaro is his eyes are so keen that
he can read the title on a phono

Holds Titles
The holder of many titles,
Pagliaro plnys offense and de
fense with equal skill on either
forehand or backhand. He has
been reported to be "nimble as a
fawn, as, agile as an acrobat and
i graceful as a ballerina."
According to Bob Russell, spe
cial activities chairman, the
Union is very fortunate to be
able to present Pagliaro at an
exhibition such as this. Russell
continued by saying, '-It will be
a terrific show for both table
tennis enthusiasts and non-players."
It has been reported that once
a proponent of the lawn tennis nifY Stfttt fJVffie
game chided Pagliaro that a Jti i lulls
ranking tennis player could ! J TT. 'Fiieion'
easily beat him at table tennis. " r LUtllVU
A match was arranged with this
player, then at the top of his
tennis career and a good table
tennis player. For a time the ten
nis player was unable even to
hit the ball and it was not until
Pagliaro seated himself in a chair
did his opponent have a chance.
And even from a sitting position
Paeliaro won the match.

States Tuesday accused Russia
of shooting down an unarmed
American navy plane over the
Baltic sea and demanded indem
nities and punishment of the
soviet fliers responsible, lhat
accusation and the accompany
ing demands were contained in a
note handed to the boviet toreign
ministry in Moscow at 5 p. m.
The state department spokes
man, Michael J. McDermott,
made the note public and went
on to deliver an oral denuncia
tion of the Soviet Union for its
"astonishing lack of common in
ternational courtesy and . . . un
usual disregard of human life."
The note it
self denounced
"the unpro
voked destruc
tion of Ameri
can lives and
property." The
plane had
vanished on a
flight over the
Baltic sea on
April 8 with
ten crewmen
aboard, and no
trace of the
ship or its crew have been found.
On April 10, Moscow fired a pro
test to the United States charg
ing than an American plane had
flown over Soviet Latvia and
fired on sWiet fighter planes
that intercepted it. Those alle
gations were denied flatly in
Tuesday's note, which pointed
out that the ship was unarmed.
McDermott further called the
Soviets to task for decorating the
Russian fighter pilots who shot
down the American plane and for
their failure to help search for
the missing men.
The note emphasized the fact
that the plane in question was
under specific instructions to fly
over any foreign territory with
out the express permission of the
foreign government concerned.
The note pointed out that the in
vestigation by the government
has convinced it that the U. S.
navy plane did not fly over any
soviet or soviet occupied terri
tory or waters.
