are in the, $892,000 Eagle Heights project, 48 have been in
operation for a year and a half on Harvey Street. Another
500 apartments are now in various stages of planning and
construction in the Eagle Heights area.
   University administrators, including President-Designate
Conrad A. Elvehjem, dean of the Graduate School, are par-
ticularly pleased with the apartments, which are attracting
favorable attention from top-caliber graduate students all
over the country.
   Students occupying the apartments are virtually unanimous
in their approval of them. When one wife wrote a letter
to a Madison newspaper complaining about some aspects of
the buildings, a host of other residents indignantly asserted
that they couldn't understand what she was complaining
about.
  The nine brick veneer buildings at Eagle Heights contain
52 one-bedroom apartments at $72, and 48 two-bedroom
units renting at $85. Occupants pay for electrical utilities.
Mrs. Fritz Stratman, whose husband is a graduate stu-
dent in animal husbandry, finds frequent use for a
basement utility room with its washer, extractor, dryer
and stationary tubs. There's one such room-which
also contains some storage space-for every eight to
twelve apartments. The machines are coin-operated.
