Book Pool Helps
Dollar Shy Pupils
The philosophy of the planned
student book exchange, which
helps money-hungry students to
save through cooperation, has
been explained by Tom Neff,
chairman of the Student Council
committee in charge of coordinat
ing the exchange.
Neff said:
At the present time, the book
store operating on campus buys
used books under the present
"Regents Book Store will buy
tised books from students at 50 per
cent of the new retail price if, 1)
the book is in good condition, (2)
It is the latest or current addition,
and (S) if the book is scheduled to
be used in a course next semester.
'The bookstore then takes these
hooks and sets a used price on
them of 70 per cent of the original
new retail price value. This
means that a book that costs $5
new could be sold to the book store
in a nsed condition for $2.50 if it
fulfills the above three criteria.
"Then the bookstore puts this
book on its shelves as a used book
with a $3.50 price tag. This 20 per
cent markup, or $1 markup in this
case, doesn't allow the bookstore a
profit because no matter how
carefully they buy used books,
some of them left on hand are not
used by instructors the next
"The 20 per cent markup by the
bookstore is used only to cover the
loss the bookstore suffers when it
is left 'holding the books. The
bookstore, therefore, does not plan
to make money when it buys or
sells used books. The 20 per cent
margin is necessary to cover the
gamble the store taken when it
tries to never have any used
books on hand when an instructor
changes the text for his course.
"The book exchange, which will
be operated by Alpha Phi Omega
Modern Crisis:
Expert Claims Television
Heeded To Aid Education
"This is madness."
That's how a New York Uni
versity professor of education de
scribes America's attempt to run
its affairs in an electronic age
with 51 per cent of its high schools
not teaching physics.
Dr. Charles Siepmann said,
"Sputnik hit at the worst possible
tima. The demand for educational
facilities and for teachers has
made for a crisis in itself, without
being aggravated by keeping pace
with scientific achievements."
The head of the New York Uni
versity's department of commun
ications is visiting the University
of Nebraska's educational televi
sion programs as a consultant for
the Fund for Advancement of Ed
ucation. The Fund finances the tel
evising of courses over KUON-TV
to 26 high schools in the surround
ing area.
"Russian schools teach students
five years of physics even though
they don't enter a scientific field."
"The situation is critical. Even
if we didn't believe in educational
television, we would have to use
it in the teaching of our children.
We haven't the luxury of time to
experiment with other methods to
catch up."
The British-born educator said
that television alone cannot only
solve the school crisis but can
raise the level of education gen
As related to the immediate cri
sis in education, he said the merit
of television can be summed up
as follows:
"While bulging enrollments and
shortage of teachers combine to
create appalling difficulties, they
do not constitute the heart of our
problem the increasing prev
alence of bad teaching. Adding
more poor teachers will net help.
"But television makes possible
the spread of good teaching as
never before. By using TV to ex
ploit the skills of our best lec
turers we release other teachers
to display their variant talents in
other directions."
He explained that "one fact of
nature has retarded education as
long as teaching has gone on. A
great teacher is confined by the
range of his voice and by the
square footage of his classroom."
Television removes this obstacle,

service fraternity with Ken Tem
pero as chairman, will save the
students money by eliminating the
necessary 20 per cent 'gambling'
margin. The exchange will just
handle the sale or exchange of
the books for the students. It will
never own the books.
"The student, therefore, will put
the 20 per cent or $1 in the case
of a $5 book in his pocket. If a
student sells four or five texts
(the average for a semester)
through the exchange, he may
save $4 to $5.
"The book exchange will be held
in room S13 of the Union. It will
be open to take students' books on
Jan. 24, 27 and 28.
"The first three days of second
semester it will be open to sell
the books. The exchange will ac
cept late books on these days, but
the chances of their being sold
will be proportionally less.
"February 10 and 11 are the
days students may claim the
money for books sold or reclaim
their unsold books."
Spring Day
Spring Day committee appli
cations are available in the Hn
dcnt Council office until Satur
day, according to John Kinnier,
Student C a a c i 1 Nominating

a 5.7 average; must be interest

be said. Dr. Siepmann denied the
opposition's criticism that TV is
an ultimate instrument to replace
the teacher.
He added that the educational
TV critics must admit that "where
no teaching of essential subjects
foreign languages, physics, and
chemistry exists, some teaching,
however slight, is obviously better
than none at all."
"The major obstacle to bring
education abreast of these elec
tronic times is not monetary. It
is rather habitual and outworn
practices and patterns of thought,
false fears among teachers that TV
will displace them, inflexible at
titudes to the realities of educa
tion. "The success of experiments in
educational television suggests
that experimentation has gone far
enough, that we are now ready for
a rapid extension in the practical
uses of television in the schools
across our lands."
Dr. Siepmann has been a pro
fessor of education at New York
since 1946. Before coming to the
United States, he was an execu
tive of the British Broadcasting
Company for 12 years, heading
their school broadcasts and adult
education division.
Retreat Scheduled
The all-campus Inter-Protestant
Retreat will be held Jan. 28-30 at a
camp near Dannebrog, Nebr., ac
cording to Mai Seagren, chairman.

the study will be led by Gustave
Free from Cotner School of Re
ligion. Transportation will be arranged
by the local student houses. Inter
