One dorm resident, who asked not to
be identified, said that because false
alarms are so commonplace in the
dorm, most students ignored the alarm.
It was only after the alarm continued to
ring that students evacuated the
building, he said.
According to Ann Arbor Fire Mar-
shall Wesley Prater who inspected the
room after the fire, the fire was caused
by melting wax that dripped onto
a clothes chest.

A former University engineering1
professor and his brother pleaded
guilty Wednesday to charges of con-
spiring to import and distribute more
than 40,000 pounds of marijuana.
The two also pleaded guilty to tax
evasion charges at U.S. District Court
in Ann Arbor.
Fred Shure, a member of the nuclear
engineering department from 1962 to
1981, and his brother, Ned Shure, each
face a maximum penalty of 40 years in
prison and a $140,000 fine.
DISTRICT JUDGE Charles Joiner
set sentencing for Feb. 1.
The Shures, both Ann Arbor residen
ts, ran a coast-to-coast drug operation
in which they used two ships, the
"Shady Lady" and the "Don Frank"
and rented tractor-trailer trucks to im-
port and distribute marijuana.
The Shures surrendered to federal
drug officials last spring after the "Don
Frank" sank off Cape Hatteras, N.C.,
with an estimated 48,000 pounds of
COAST GUARD officials found 236
bails of marijuana, or approximately
10,000 pounds, floating from the ship's

It may become easier for students
living in University housing to switch
dorms or swap roommates beginning
winter term if the panel in charge of the
procedure has its way.
The housing office committee which
annually reviews the reapplication
procedure will meet Tuesday to for-
mulate a recommendation for policy
UNDER THE current system, there
is a 42 percent ceiling on the number of
returning students allowed into the
dorms. The remaining spots are reser-
ved for incoming freshmen.
In addition, students wishing to swit-
ch dorms must first enter a lottery in
their current dorm to secure a Univer-
sity lease, then get on a waiting list for
the dorm Feywant to move into.
But the Fall Planning Committee
wants to change all this.
ONE OPTION would be to open up the
dorm lotteries to all students, both
residents and non-residents, according
to committee member Matt Burley.
"It would alleviate a big bureaucratic
problem of students rushing to the
Student Activities Building," said
Burley, who also is a member of the
Residence Hall Association.
The RHA also would like to guarantee
that all students already living in the
halls have first priority for leases, not
just those who win the lottery.
"We want to accomodate students
who want to switch dorms and at the
same time preserve the unique at-
mosphere in individualhhall," Burley
said. "We also want to preserve the
privileges of in-hall students so they
will have more security in getting first
dibs at places on their own halls."
