The student book trading
post which opens Monday isn't
any new idea.
But if it succeeds, it will be
the first to do so in campus
H. R. Ritchie, Book Ex
change manager, said yesterday,
"I wish the swap shop .the best
of luck in their project." Then
he went on to explain how sim
ilar projects were attempted in
former years and failed.
The last project of this type
was started in March of 1942 by
student government, headed by
President Truman Hobbs. The
book swap shop, then tagged "co
op student book exchange" was
maintained in Graham Memorial
basement. Curry Jones, head
cheerleader, managed the store.
The co-op store lasted less than
a quarter. When it died, student
government leaders went to Rit
chie and held a post mortem. Af
ter thanking him for his support,
they explained why the idea had
The old student book swapping
center failed according to Hobbs
and Jones, because:
1. Students wanted too much
for their used text books.
2. Many of the books placed in
the shop were old, outdated books.
3. Leaders of the project didn't
realize the time and skill required
to maintain the shop.
The question facing sponsors
of the student swap shop now is:
can the project be carried out?
Leaders in student government
and Alpha Phi Omega, sponsors
of the project, seem to think the
idea can succeed and serve stu
dents. The new plan appears to have
remedied most of the faults of for
mer ones that failed. This swap
shop will only be maintained dur
ing the first 10 days of the quar
ter. The former ones were set lip
to operate for the entire year.
The swap shop will succeed,
say student government leaders,
if students don't ask too high a
price for their books.
President Ham Horton said yes
terday, "We are very happy to
have the blessings of Mr. Ritchie.
We believe that any faults of old
student swap shops have been
corrected and that this one will
fill the needs of students."

L. Whipple of Harvard, which

Whipple's basic idea, accord
ing to Dr. Davis, is that a comet
is composed of a matrix of me
teoric material having a high
melting point, which is sur
rounded by the gases methane,
ammonia, carbon dioxide and
water. Normally these gases are
frozen into ices in space so
that a comet may be thought of
as a ball of ice.

that the comet travels in an el
liptical orbit around the sun
