The Commissary’s new quarters in the north-central wing of An chor Halt are small, put student manager Carey Clark has been able to stock a variety of the staple groceries found an this area, although no perishables are hand- Iqd. ! jj j. “There are two Reasons why meats and vegetables aren’t stock ed,” Clark said, “the first reason is because there isn’t enough space I and secondly, if there was enough 1 space, the Commissary couldn’t handle perishables on the extrente-. ![ ly low margin of profit it operates j ; °n,” .1 | J The Commissary is now open' from 4 to 6 every afternoon, Mon day throtigh Friday, and from 1 j to 6 on Saturday afternoon. Clark | points oqit that these hours may have to be shortened during the summer semesters, since the Com missary depends on high volume and quick turnover, two factors which will be affected by decreas ed summer enrollment. “It hap been a long, tough grind to get the Student Commissary established and to get its roots in the ground,” Clark said, “but now it looks: like the Commissary is here to stay as long as the situa tion demands and the students) want it.’f Newmans to Hear Bryan Pastor At Monday Meeting V ;• ! . jl , H: 1 Rev. ‘Donald R.
