KKK activity disturbs
new state FBI director
DETROIT (UPI) - The new director
of FBI operations in Michigan said
yesterday the increase of Ku Klux Klan
activities remains a "definite" concern
of the agency.
"It (Klan activity) is a definite and
legitimate concern," said Wayne
Davis,.the first black chief of the FBI in
Michigan. "The upsurge of Klan ac-
tivity is something to be concerned
HE NOTED, however, the FBI was
somewhat limited in its investigative
powers regarding the Klan and other
"In the past we were able to obtain in-
formation on these'people through sur-
veillance," he said. "Now, if no laws
are being broken, we can't begin in-
Recently, a group of men identified
as Klansmen were convicted of

DAVIS, 43, began his career with the
FBI in Detroit in 1963 and served as an
agent in Newark, N.J., and
Washington, D.C. In 1970, he was
assigned supervisory duties at FBI
headquarters, including responsibility
for the bureau's Equal Opportunity and
He was named special agent in
charge of the FBI's Indianapolis Office
in June 1979 and headed the in-

Davis said the investigation of the
Jordan shooting turned up no evidence
that the assault was part of a larger
movement concentrating on blacks and
civil rights leaders.
"WE WERE aware of those concer-
ns but there was nothing to point to such
a thing," he said.
He refused specific comment on, any
ongoing FBI investigations in
Michigan, saying only that organized
crime and government fraud probes
were under way.
Davis said the mysterious disap-
pearance of ex-Teamsters President
Jimmy Hoffa six years ago was still a

look at it," he said.
Davis said he saw nothling
"significant" in his appointment as the
first black chief in Detroit.
"This is 1981 in the freest society in
the world," he said. "It's too bad we
have to have a first black anything."

NEW YORK (AP) - More than a
*quarter of heavy combat veterans in
Vietnam have been arrested since
returning home, while other veterans of
that war have "significantly more"
social, psychological and career
problems than non-veterans, a gover-
nment study said yesterday.
Among the gravest of problems,
which still occur more than 10 years af-
ter the war experiences, was a much
lower education level, and thus em-
Sployment level, than their peers who
did. not serve in Vietnam or in the
BECAUSE MOST of the veterans are
now in their mid 30s, the damage done
to many of their careers may be

which was based on an eight-year
Other serious problems, linked

after 1968, when public anti-war sen-

rate of alcohol and drug abuse, medical
and stress-related problems, and a
higher arrest rate than aiiy other
About 26 percent of heavy combat
veterans were arrested in the post-
combat period, a figure "significantly"
higher than non-veterans, said Dr.
Robert Laufer, one of the psychologists
who wrote the report.
THE REPORT said 70 percent of all
veterans went back to school after their
service, but "relatively few" - one-

college degrees. Only seven percent of
black Vietnam veterans earned

n WASHINGTON (AP) - Two
Salvadoran opposition leaders say the
1.eagan administration last month ac-
cepted, and then canceled, face-to-face
talks with representatives of El
Salvador's left-wing guerrillas.
State Department officials would say
only that no date was ever fixed for
such a meeting. One, who asked not to

were now "floating" stories about can-

secret diplomatic effort collapsed Feb.

campaign charging Cuban and Soviet
involvement in El Salvador's civil war.
