Ohms notes that the store is subject to its heaviest traffic between the hours of 10 a.m. and p.m. He adds that although business picks up from 4 to 4:30 p.m, the afternoons are the slowest part of the day. Currently, the Bookstore is open daily during the school week 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 1 Saturday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The majority of the students polled are satisfied with the organization of the Bookstore, with 66 percent approving of the present system. Several of the remaining 34 percent suggested reorganizing the Whether to stack books according to course titles or numbers will be examined by SUSC's Bookstore staff. textbooks according to department, not class number. Ohms says that a decision has not yet been reached as to the organization of texts in the new facility, but notes that arranging the texts by class number cuts down on confusion by allowing lower classmen to pick up most of their books in one area. If organized by department, the book Nutrition would be located under science, he says and adds that this would undoubtedly cause confusion to new students who would perhaps look for a home economics department. Chaos would result from students searching for books while not being sure of the department they are registered under, says Ohms. However, locating books by the prefix name of the class would alleviate both problems. Of those polled, 61 percent say they are satisfied with the availibility of items in the Bookstore, while 82 percent agree that the Bookstore carries an adequate stock of class supplies. Several noted that a larger and paperbacks dealing selection of notebooks, with the classics is needed. With such limited space available in the present Bookstore, Ohms says that items like videos, which do not prove to be cost effective, are replaced with items that do better. Although 60 percent responded that they were satisfied with the availibility of ordered items, most students commented on the delay when special-orderin- g textbooks. Ohms attributes some of this delay to the student. In books generally take a most cases, special-ordere- d maximum of 10 days to arrive from the publisher, he says. Although there are exceptions, Ohms notes that it then usually takes students several days to pick up their book after they have been notified. Many students suggested ordering more books to have on hand. In response, Ohms says that many publishers won't take books back if they are not sold. By ordering more than the amount needed, the Bookstore runs the risk of having to sell the new books to a used book company and take a loss, he says. "If we lose money on one end of the books, we have to recover it somewhere else," he says and adds, "We don't want to have to do that." Chess Club Meeting, 3 p.m., Old Main Rm 304. MB Eastern Montana vs. SUSC, 7:30 p.m.. Centrum. Campus Bible Study, 6 p.m.. Library 106. Enrollment tops priority list (continued from page 3) Legislative analysts report several recommendations for SUSC. These include: funding mandated costs associated with employee benefits and of the liability, funding one-thir- d in higher education anticipation growth and funding part of the request for operation and maintenance of new space. Another point of interest discussed at Friday's meeting was changing from quarter system to a semester system. Sherratt said he was in favor of the proposal, but he would leave it up to the faculty to decide. Foreign language credit available Students with experience in almost any foreign language can receive credit at SUSC through language exams. Tests will be administered Feb. 6, but interested students should register for the exams before the end of this month.
