BEIRUT, Lebanon- A key Iranian
clergyman threatened yesterday that
Iran would seize the French Embassy
in Tehran just as it "rubbed America's
snout in the dust" unless ex-President
Abolhassan Bani-Sadr is returned for
"If you are not prepared to return
these terrorists to Iran, then the
Iranian nation will do to you the same
that has been done to America, when
with clenched fists and the 'God is
Great' slogans America's snout was
rubbed in the dust," the Moslem leader
said in a speech broadcast by Tehran
MOST OF THE 144 French citizens in
Iran have been denied permission to
leave immediately for France and are
believed to be inside their embassy. Af-
ter France gave political asylum to
Bani-Sadr last week, angry demon-
strations outside the building in Tehran
prompted French President Francois
Mitterrand to ask his countrymen to
return home.
Iran would not permit the French to
leave on planes provided by their
government, but said arrangements
were being made to send them home on
Iran Air flights next week. The French
government has said it does not have
cause to worry yet.
France has said 116 of the French
citizens had asked to be repatriated.
Witnesses in Tehran telephoned by The
Associated Press in Beirut said there
were more than 100 people in the em-
bassy and that the small street where
the building is located was deserted.
They said the building was shuttered,
guarded by two Iranian policemen and
that the French flag was removed.
MEANWHILE, Iran's official Pars
news agency reported 38 "counter-
revolutionaries" were executed for
"killing innocent people" with hand
grenades and fire bombs. That was
believed to be the largest number of
executions in a single day in recent
months and brought to more than 300
the number of known executions since
Bani-Sadr's removal June 22.
In still more action, two dozen
Iranians opposed to the Khomeini
regime staged a brief takeover yester-
day of the office representing Iran's in-
terests in the United States. One man
was shot and critically wounded as they
gave themselves up.
TWO OTHER Iranians also were
taken to hospitals, one with bruises and
the other because he wag "overex-

The demonstrators, supporters of the
leftist guerrilla group People's
Mojahideen-e Khalq, invaded the
Iranian Interests Section at about 8:30
a.m. EDT and took five employees of
the office hostage, police said.
Police talked the militants into.giving

Two University students and two
other Michigan residents were among
60 Iranian students arrested in New
Jersey Wednesday morning, following

Police reportedly stormed a house
the students were staying at in
Englewood, N.J. without a search or
arrest warrant and proceeded to arrest
60 occupants, without naming charges,
according to an Iranian University
student, who was also in New York for
the demonstration.
AN IRANIAN University instructor
who is in contact with the group said
neighbors were suspicious because
there were so many Iranian students in
one house and they called the police.
The student, who requested
anominity, said that the police entered
the house between 7 and 7:30 a.m. Wed-
nesday and demanded that the students
give their names and addresses.
When the students refused, they were
arrested, he said, because the police
felt that there was probable reason to
believe that they were illegal aliens.

The declining enrollment of black
students at the University, a trend
reported in the administration's annual
minority report released last March,.
shows up most sharply at the School of
Education, where the enrollment of
black students suffered its most
dramatic drop in 1980.
Although overall minority enrollment
in some of the University's 17 schools
and colleges has remained stable or
slightly increased, the number of black
students has shown a marked
decrease, according to the report to the
University officials stress that each
school and college is unique in its
minority enrollment, counseling, and
financial services problems or suc-
cesses, but a representation of the
general trend and the factors involved
can be seen in the School of Education.

ALTHOUGH THE education school
had the highest. undergraduate
minority enrollment last year - 14 per-
cent - and its graduate minority
enrollment is the fourth highest at the
University, the School of Education had
the greatest decrease in minority
students, due to a drop from 155 black
students in1979 to 97 in 1980.
Rising tuition costs, inflation,
recruitment problems, and reductions
in overall enrollment are some of the
factors that appear to have contributed
to the problem, officials say.
Lack of sufficient financial aid does
not appear to be a factor, however. The
School of Education has reported that
minority scholarship money has
declined by 50 percent since 1975.
However, this reduction is an "effect of
rather than a cause of" the enrollment
decrease, said Harry McLaughlin,
director of the School's Office of
