An employee surveys the food at Betty erector's Kitchen, which will start providing items to Ttojan Grounds in January. Coffeehouse to sell baked goods Baktry: Trojan Grounds to stock merchandise from Crocker's Kitchen By LaNEA AUSTIN Suff Writer Although Commons’ newest addition, Betty Crocker’s Kitchen, has not taken away from the business of other campus eateries, its merchandise will be sold at Trojan Grounds starting next semester, replacing all other bakery items sold there. “We have decided to introduce Betty Crocker’s bagels, muffins and breakfast breads at Trojan Grounds,* said Jerry McKnight, the senior manager at Trojan Grounds. “This way the prices will be the same and products will still be fresh, sent here straight from Betty Crocker.* Since the November opening of Betty Crocker’s Kitchen, Commons has been overwhelmed with long lines, coffee cups and wax paper bags bearing the Betty Crocker emblem and the sweet smell of cinnamon rolls. Cashiers say that business has been booming at Betty Crocker’s Kitchen and that it is not declining as the semester ends. “Everybody loves hot,’ said Laura Vega, a cashier at Main Street Commons. ‘Almost nobody goes over to (the bakery bin in Main Street). Customers go to Betty Crocker since it’s new and (the food) is wanner, especially since it’s cold (outside).’ Daniel Cervantes, a graduate student in electrical engineering, said he ti: goes to Betty Crocker’s for the bagels. “The selection is better at Betty Crocker,* he said, “and the food is freshly baked.’ Business at Trojan Grounds has not decreased despite the appearance of the slightly lower-priced cross-cam-pus competitor, said Socorro Delacruz, assistant manager at Trojan Grounds. “Students don’t even care about the prices,* Delacruz said. *1 ask them if they want to put food on their Flex plan, and they say no and just pay for it They don’t go anywhere else because they like the coffee here. Why come here to buy coffee then walk all the way over there for food, especially when they study at (Leavey) Libraiy?* Brian Erwin, a junior majoring in (see Kitchen, page 2) Tryouts for song and yell leaders rescheduled SpMt: New cheerleaders to replace current ones in January rather than August; seniors frustrated By JENNIFER KELLEHER Staff Writer The Norwest Sun Bowl football game in El Paso, Texas, on Dec. 31 will be the last time the current yell and song leader squads cheer for USC Because of a change in tryouts this year, new yell and song leader squads will replace the current squads during basket-baU season aa of Jan. 2, leaving them three months ahy of a full year of cheering. Usually, tryouts for a new squad are held in tbe spring semester. But this year, tryouts were held in the foil to give the new squad more exposure before football season starts again, said Justine Gilman, adviser for the yell leaders and song leaders. Hie new squad will serve until the 1999 football season ends. This change will affect the seniors who are currently on the squad because they were not allowed to try out for another season. “It’s kind of unfortunate for the seniors because they won’t be able to do the basketball season that they were brought on thinking that they were going to do,” said Troy Remelski, captain of the current yell leader squad and a junior majoring in psychology and critical studies. The new yell and song leader squads have already been chosen and will perform during basketball season. All of the current members who tried out for the yell leader squad made the team, while two members who tried out again for the song leader squad did not. The decision to hold tryouts in the foil was made during the summer, said Don Ludwig, intramural recreation director. However, some yell leaders and song leaders said the decision came as a shock. “I’m really upset and hurt that the university would do this,” said Charlotte Hufechmidt, a senior majoring in communications and business who was a yen leader during the foil. Because she is a senior, she will not have a chance to cheer next semester. « (see Squads, page 6) HOLIDAY HOURS Student Financial Services: Closed starting Dec. 25 and reopening Jan. 4.

Students have two options to resell books Buyback: Bookstore and campus Senate to purchase used semester texts By JENNIFER MEDINA Staff Writer Students have two options to get rid of used books this year. Student Senate Academic Affairs Committee will be running a Student Book Exchange and Pertusati University Bookstore will also continue to buy back books. The Student Book Exchange will run all next week from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of Associates Park, across from the bookstore. Students can drop off their used books and will receive a contract stating the terms of the exchange. If their books are sold, students will receive 65 percent of the retail price about a week after the sale ends, said Anusha Ramanthan, chairwoman of the book exchange and a sophomore majoring in biology. Only boob that are being used for next semester will be accepted. Hie buyback program at the bookstore will run from Dec. 14 to Dec. 22 and again from Jan. 11 to Jan. 19. If the book is being used in the spring semester, students receive 50 percent of the purchase price in cash. If not, students will receive anywhere between 10 and 30 percent for their books, depending on national demand, said Raymond McDermott, course materials manager of the bookstore. Students can buy used books from the Student Book Exchange from Jan. 11 to Jan. 14 in front of the Student Union for 65 percent off the retail price, Ramanthan said. Senate will return unsold books Jan. 14 so that students will still have time to sell them to the bookstore. The bookstore sells used books at 75 percent of the retail price. Last year was the first time tbe Student Book Exchange was held, and of the 120 books turned in, 80 were sold, Ramanthan said. She said letters were sent to professors of large lectures this semester to encourage their students to turn in their books. Last year’s vice-chair of the exchange, Adam Levine, a junior majoring in biomedical engineering and creative writing, said that approximately 65 of the 127 submitted books were sold. “We weren’t all that affected by (the Student Book Exchange) last year,” McDermott said. “I think most students want cash back right away.*
