'U,' MSU promote
The Michigan Daily-Wednesday, March 10, 1982-Page 3
By INDRE LIUTKUS
Both the University and Michigan
State University, faced with the
prospect of declining student
populations, have adbpted more
aggressive marketing plans to per-
suade students to continue living in
university dorms rather than moving
At Michigan State University in East
Lansing, university housing officials
have decided to reinstitute a policy
which requires undergraduates to live
in university housing for their first two
years of school. The requirement has
been on the books for seven years, but
university officials did not enforce it
because there were always enough
students to fill open spaces in dor-
NOW, HOWEVER, facing declining
enrollment and severe budget cut-
backs, MSU officials plan to start en-
forcing the plan in the fall of 1983 to
keep the dorms filled, said Robert Un-
derwood, the manager of MSU's dorms.
In Ann Arbor, University officials say
they have no problem yet finding
enough students to fill dorm rooms. But
they too have decided to make a greater
effort to attract students to the dorms.
University housing officials said,
however, wlile there may be no shor-
tage of students in the immediate
future, the student population might
shrink in the long run enough that dorm
rooms be left empty.
"WE SEE THE writing on the wall,"
said Leroy Williams, the director of
residence hall operations for the
University. "We have a great program
here and are having no problems now,
but we want to avoid the difficulties
(Michigan) State is having."
"We are not at a point where we are
begging for occupants. We still have to
monitor re-entry into the University
housing in order to have room for each
incoming freshperson," he said, noting
that since the University has fewer
dorms than MSU the problem in Ann
Arbor will probably never be as severe
as it is in East Lansing.
TO PLAY IT safe, however, Univer-
sity housing officials have come up with
new pamphlets which stress the
benefits of living in University housing
and have extended meal hours and
started serving breakfast in some dor-
mitories in an effort to attract more
students, Williams said.
"We are aware that University
housing and the different types of
private housing are all going after the
same student population," he said.
"We'll just have to keep pushing harder
to let students know about the benefits
of living in University housing."
MSU officials have takn much the
same approach in marketing their
dorms. "The last thing we want to do is
take a defeatist attitude," said Under-
wood. "We have good, reasonably
priced, conveniently located housing,
and are attempting to actively attract
students by making the halls better
adapted to varying student needs."

MIAMI (AP)- Nearly two tons of
high-grade Colombian cocaine was
seized yesterday at Miami Inter-
national Airport by U.S. Customs and
Drug Enforcement Administration
agents and officials said it was the
largest cocaine seizure in history.
About 3,748 pounds of cocaine, worth
an estimated $175 million on the street,
was found in a shipment of clothing that
arrived from Colombia aboard a Tam-
pa-Colombia International Airways
cargo plane, said Robert Battard,
regional commissioner of Customs in
HE AND OTHER Customs and DEA
officers described it as the nation's
largest cocaine seizure. Federal of-
ficials previously had said the largest
amount seized was 826 pounds, con-
fiscated in February 1981 in Miami.
DEA officials interviewed the crew of
the plane and many of the airline's em-
ployees, but no arrests were made, Bat-
"We've been working (watching) this
particular carrier for at least the last 12
months and we've suspected them of
carrying contraband," Battard said.
Custom inspectors met the Boeing 707
cargo jet as it arrived and began
checking its cargo, Battard said. At
least 22 unconcealed boxes of cocaine
were found among 22 other boxes of
dresses and suits from Medellin,
Colombia, he said.
According to Battard, the airline is
about 3 or 4 years old and has daily
flights between Miami and Colombia.
