Police department

The Michigan Daily - Tuesday, November 11, 1986 - Page 3
French hostages
reported freed

The Ann Arbor Police officer
who served as the University's
liaison died Sunday evening.
Captain Kenneth Klinge suffered a
major heart attack and was
pronounced dead on arrival at the
University Hospital. He was 50
years old.
Klinge headed a special services
division for the 29 years he served
on the police force. His division
coordinated patrolling University
land and buildings, and the
University paid a portion of his
salary. His replacement has not yet
been chosen.
KLINGE oversaw scheduling
security and traffic control at foot-
ball games and major University
events requiring extra workers,
according to Bob Pifer, assistant
director of public safety. Klinge
even traveled with the football team
in his role as security coordinator
for the games, which often draws a
crowd of 105,000 fans.
The Ann Arbor police has patrol
officers on call around-the-clock to
respond to campus calls. University
Public Safety officers are not
authorized to make, arrests, carry
guns, or collect evidence in crim-
inal investigations.
Pifer said Klinge worked with
Public Safety officers to "decide a
plan of action" for problem crime
areas on campus, such as the
"We worked very closely with

him; he'll be missed," Pifer said.
IN ADDITION to his job at
the police department, Klinge
worked for several Ann Arbor
organizations. He was an active
member of the Salvation Army's
Advisory Board for nearly 20 years.
According to Col. Harold Corwell,
the Salvation Army's community
relations officer, Klinge was the
Chairman of the Board during their
"Capital Campaign," which earned
more than $1 million seven years
ago. The money helped fund the
construction of the Citadel
Building, Salvation Army head-
quarters, on Huron street.
Klinge was a motivating force
for the police department's
Salvation Army bell ringing cam-
paign every Christmas. According
to Corwell, 35 different organ-
izations ring bells on the Friday
before Christmas, but the police
department was "always top" in the
amount of money raised.
Klinge's death "is one of the
greatest losses to the Salvation
Army," Corwell said.
Klinge was also involved in the
Ann Arbor chapter of the Boy
Scouts of America. For 19 years,
he worked with the "Explorers"
program, which gives the scouts
on-hand experience with careers
such as law enforcement. Klinge
was a leader on the "Police Post"
division, according to Joyce Leslie,
office manager at the Boy Scouts of
America headquarters in Ann Arbor.

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - Two
anonymous telephone callers to
Beirut newspapers said yesterday
night that two French hostages had
been freed by their Moslem
kidnappers, but the reports could
not be confirmed.
One of the callers indicated the
captives might be taken to
Damascus, Syria, and reliable
sources in the Syrian capital said
the freed hostages had arrived there
and identified them as Marcel
Coudari and Camille Sontag.
One of the two communiques
distributed earlier yesterday by the
Revolutionary Justice Organization
said some of the group's French
hostages would be freed within 48
hours as a goodwill gesture made
possible by Algerian and Syrian
mediation. The group, believed to
be composed of Shiite Moslems,
claimed that France had made
promises on unspecified demands.
midnight an anonymous telephone
caller told the independent Beirut
newspaper An-Nahar that two
French hostages had been freed in
Moslem west Beirut's Ramlet al-
Baida residential district at 7:30
p.m. (12:30 p.m. EST).
The second communique signed
by the Revolutionary Justice

Organization said the release would
take place at 7:30 p.m. at the Hotel
Beaurivage in Ramlet al-Baida near
the headquarters of Syrian army
officers, but reporters at the hotel
said no hostages had appeared there.
At 7:55 p.m., French Diplomat
Guy Letrange arrived at the hotel
with three bodyguards in a bullet-
proof green Peugot embassy car. A
bodyguard stepped out and told
reporters French Ambassador
Christian Graeff had instructed them
to take delivery of any freed
"We will wait," said the man,
who identified himself as Jean-
Claude la Bourdette, the head of
Graeff's bodyguards.
newspaper As-Safir reported late
yesterday that it had received a
telephone call from a person
claiming to speak for the
Revolutionary Justice Organization
and it said he asked if the paper had
received the report from An-Nahar.
As-Safir said an editor told the
caller, "Yes we did. But can you
tell us the names?" of the hostages.
It said the caller, speaking
Arabic, replied, "Not right away.
You will know tomorrow. Go take
their pictures in Damascus."

remains below the University's
goal of 10 percent black enroll-
"Despite declining black enroll-
ment nationwide," said Sudarkasa in
a news release, "we at Michigan
have reversed the downward trend."
Robert Eckstein, a research
analyst in the Office of Affirmative
Action, said, "We may not be
zipping along...but are definitely
bucking a state and national trend"
for black enrollment.
MUCH of the overall increase
comes from increased minority
freshperson enrollment which is the
highest (699 students) it has been
since 1983. All minority groups
showed increased freshperson enroll-
ment, particularly for black students
whose numbers rose by 38 students
to reach the highest level (271
students) since 1978.
"I'm very pleased with
undergraduate admissions," said
Sudarkasa, "every year we're
enrolling an increasingly larger
number of minority (freshperson).
But we must also pay attention to
the rate of persistence and gradua-
Sudarkasa said that one reason
Asian enrollment is growing so
rapidly compared to other minority

groups is that the percentage of
Asian students obtaining a degree
within six years-the retention
rate-has been high.
SHE SAID "the University
should continue to provide neces-
sary support services" for students
already enrolled.
In addition, Sudarkasa said that
in the coming year, special efforts
will have to be made to enroll more
Native American students, who
have remained at about 0.4 percent
of the student population since
While undergraduate minority
enrollment increased from 11.5
percent to 12.5 percent of the entire
undergraduate population, graduate
minority enrollment in Rackham
dropped from 13.2 to 12.3 percent.
Much of this drop comes from
the decline in black graduate
enrollment from 5.1 (213 students)
to 4.2 percent (178 students). Black
enrollment in Rackham has de-
creased each year since 1975 when
654 blacks enrolled.
Both the University and the state
are addressing declining graduate
school enrollment by establishing
new scholarship and fellowship
