Hopefully after this week the
Associated Student Ko-op (ASK)
cardholders will receive a discount
Sue Overing, second ASUN
vice president, said she has been
working out details with two
grocery stores and hopes that
Ideal Grocery, 905 S. 27th Street,
will sign a contract with the
Ko-op this week.
She said Ideal Grocery would

University officials have "no idea" if the tuition and
dormitory increases scheduled to take place this fall will be
allowed under Phase 4.
Howard ,Jleyille, administrative vice president said the
University is expecting the increases to be allowed. He said the
University was not working on an alternative budget, if the
increases were not okayed.
Phase 4 has also effected the vending machine food prices in
the Union and throughout campus. Bob Richardson, Union food
service manager, said the Union would receive a legal opinion on
whether it could raise prices.
Richardson said he would receive the opinion this week and
would immediately raise prices to the June 11th level, if legal.
Union raised prices
The Union raised its prices on June 11th. On June 13,
President Nixon ordered prices frozen at the level they were
during the first eight days of June.
Prices were kept at the increased June 11 level, until an
invetsigation determined that the price freeze applied to the
Union and its pr ices were rolled back.
Vending machine prices outside of the Union were raised on
July 1 on three items, cigarettes, soft drinks and ice cream.
However, these price increases also were rolled back after the
Internal Revenue Service (IRS) investigated the situation after
receiving a number of complaints.
Geraid Christof fersen of ARA Services, which handles the
University's vending machines, said he had received an
intreprctation from the company's Philadelphia office, which said
the price increase was allowable under Phase 3V.
Separate trade area
According to Christof fersen, if 10 per cent of ARA's total
trade area, which includes Nebraska and Iowa, has the higher
price, the price can he raised.
But, Christof fersen said, the IRS considered the University a
separate trade area and ruled that the prices could not be
Christof fersen said that his company disagreed with the IRS
ruling, but instead decided that a legal fight was not worth the
time and effort for the short period remaining under the current
He said he is waiting for an interpretation from his company.
He said the vending machine price increases on cigarettes, soft
drinks, and ice cream would go into effect immediately, if he
received an okay from his company.

The Ko-op began with a

estimated that 500 memberships
are needed in order for the Ko-op
to break even.
Lack of advertising
She blamed the low
membership on lack of
advertising. She said, however,
that "it will make a big difference
when we get a grocery store".

Seagren attributed the increase
to more interest in summer
workshops. He said workshop
leaders had more effectively
publicized their summer
workshops than in past years.
Ho also said a survey was
conducted last fall to determine
the type of workshops desired.
