ask increase
in funding
By ALAN LENHOFF
University officials yesterday concluded a series of
talks with the State Senate Appropriations Committee in
an attempt to gain additional state funds for the Univer-
sity for fiscal 1971-72.
Yesterday, University vice presidents Allan Smith, Fe-
dele Fauri and Wilbur Pierpont met with committee mem-
bers and asked for additions of $407,000 and $80,000 to Gov.
William Milliken's budget requests for the University's

With more than two million
Americans expected to go
abroad this summer, the D e -
partment of State is making a
determined effort to spread the
word that the drug picture
abroad is not as rosy as might
be thought.
In many countries, accord-
ing to the State Department,
drug peddlers are also police or
customs informers. After mak-
ing a sale, the seller will de-
scribe the buyer to the police
as a possible user. The buyer
is thon detained, usually found
in possession of the drugs, and
arrested and charged with a
serious offense. The seller bene-
fits two ways: he makes money
on the sale and receives a re-
ward from the police for in-
forming.
Many countries have no pro-
vision for bail, so pre-trial de-
tention can be prolonged to as
much as a year. Possession alone
can result in a jail term of
six years and a heavy fine in
some countries, while in others
the offender is placed in a
mental hospital for one to three
years. Trafficking sentenc'-s
range from 10 years to life.
State Dept. statement issued
to the press says that, "Prison
conditions in some countries
are primitive: overcrowding,
lack of sanitary facilities and
bedding; limited, poor-quality
food; little or no heat or light;
damp, underground locations;
rats and virmin; sometimes
solitary confinement,"
