Low Wednesday Morning — 39 at Marquette Mich. MARKET Broad rise NEW YORK (AP) — Stock prices rose broadly this morning, escaping a two-day slump caused by uncertainties in the turbulent Middle East and fears of higher U.S. inflation and interest rates. The Dow Jones average of 30 industrial stocks, which relin-' quished 25.35 points over Monday and Tuesday, gained 27.74 as of noon EDT to 2,574.46. Broader market barometers also gained. Analysts said heightened foreign demand for U.S. stocks, caused mainly by improved corporate earnings and the dollar's rising value against some other key currencies, was a major reason for Wall Street's strength. Market strategists also attributed the rebound to waning anxiety over Iranian threats against Saudi Arabia and U.S. military forces in the oil- producing Persian Gulf region. "The Japanese and Europeans are now more inclined to come into the American market," said Theodore Halligan, an analyst at the investment firm Piper Jaffray & Hopwood Inc. The New York Stock Exchange's composite index measuring ajl listed issues rose 1.67 to 179.06. On the American Stock Exchange, the market value index rose 0.73 to 359.05. Gaining issues outnumbered losers by more than 2-1 on the NYSE, with 970 stocks up, 466 down and 391 unchanged. Volume on the Big Board totaled 97.30 million shares in the morning session, versus 84.54 million Tuesday morning. Among gaining blue-chip issues, IBM rose 1% to 161, Eastman Kodak rose T/J to 95'/«, Procter & Gamble rose 1% to 94'/« and General Electric rose 1 to 58 7 /i. Precious metal stocks were widely lower, reflecting a decline in gold prices. Asa fell 2'/i to 687., Hecla Mining lost 1 to 217s and Homestake lost '/• to 43'/i. Among takeover-related issues, Kidde jumped 2/2 to 66% . Fast food market share According to statistics compiled by Restaurants and Institutions magazine, the dominant fast food chain is McDonald's, which captured 23 percent of 1986's $53-billion market. The closest contender for the hamburger crown was Burger King, which accounted for more than 8 percent of the market. U.S. FAST FOOD MARKET SHARES As percentage of estimated total sales: COMPUTER (Continued from page 1) Know as CAD, for Computer Aided Dispatching, the $12,000 computer program is the latest advance in a long-term program to computerize the Ukiah Police Department. „ The CAD system allows dispatchers to receive a call, type in the name, address and phone number of the caller, and know at a glance what officers are available and what other calls are waiting for an officer to respond. "Without the computer I would be filling out little cards and they would be falling off the console herp," Fisher said, pointing to her radio. A glance at a computer screen was enough to tell Fisher that the two officers on duty this morning were at 799 Cunningham checking out a report of juveniles stealing gasoline. The sergeant was on the freeway looking for a gun somebody thought they saw while whizzing by at 60 mph. Meanwhile, some else had called to report a two-ton, flat-bed truck apparently abandoned on Jones Street Another man thought somebody had broken into his car at the -SAUDIS- Motel 6. The computer kept track of all of it, automatically. As convenient as the CAD system is, it is the officer safety features tham most impress Chief Fred Keplinger. When an officer begins an activity, such as a traffic stop, the CAD system will begin flashing beside his listing on the screen if he has not radioed back within three minutes. "It's a safeguard that you don't forget about somebody when they have been out for too long," Keplinger said. When an officer stops a car and calls in the license number, the computer automatically screens the number to see if the vehicle is stolen or if the registered owner is wanted on local warrants. A separate computer can check for warrants or theft reports nationwide. The computer also has a memory for addresses. When a call is received requesting an officer at a particular location, the CAD system checks for wanted suspects at the location and a "premise history" of reported incidents there. The CAD dispatching system has only been in place the past week. It is the latest improvement in a program begun three years ago under then-Chief Dave Johnson to bring Ukiah police into the computer age. The process has advanced, Keplinger said, the point where all files are computerized. Officers can swiftly check suspects for prior arrests and outstanding warrants. Computers tabulate statistics for monthly crime reports to the Bureau of Crime Statistics Supervisors. That task once took one person a week each month, but is now down in minutes, Keplinger said. With the coming of the computer, Ukiah police have broken the city in to two dozen "report areas." By shuffling and reshuffling crime reports, investigators can see, for instance, where and when the most drunken driving arrests are made, or track vandalism reports or burglaries. "It makes it extremely easy to sec what kind of activities you have at what time of the day," Keplinger said. "Police officers have been doing that for years, but this takes the hand searching out of it." Within the next couple of years Ukiah police will put computers in patrol cars. Officers will be able to nin motor vehicle checks and warrant checks themselves, as well as writing the synopsis of the incident at the scene. They will also have the same information as the dispatcher on calls pending and what other officers are doing. So far, the city has spent about $52,000 on computers and software, Keplinger said. The estimated cost of computerizing five patrol cars is well under 540,000, at current prices. "The longer we wait, the cheaper it gets," Keplinger said. Fisher, herself a reserve officer, has dispatched for the county sheriff, Clcarlakc and Willits police. The dispatch center in Ukiah is the most modem she has worked with, and she credits KcDlinger for that. "Our chief feels it all begins right here," she said. "Most people don't realize how important the dispatcher is. We screen the calls. You have to deal wi th us before you ever sec a cop." "We r< ,;nizc dispatch as usual- lyour ' '-ontact with the public." KcpliiiH-- "ced. "It is a lifeline io<- our office . needing help, and for the public needing an < fficer." (Continued from page 1) diplomats had said Tuesday they might hold the plane until four Saudi diplomats were allowed to leave Tehran. IRNA quoted one pilgrim, Sey- yed Rahim Dezfuli, as saying that women pilgrims were the main target of Saudi police. Without giving direct quotes, IRNA said Dezfuli recounted that "pilgrims were subjected to a barrage of stones from nearby buildings and were also shot in the streets below, and when ambulances of the Iranian Red Crescent Society approached the scene, the Saudis riddled them with bullets as well." The pilgrims' accounts contradicted Saudi claims that no shots were fired. Saudi officials said the violence grew out of an anti- American dcmonstratioivby the Irani ans and that 402 people, including 275 Iranians, were killed. When news of the Mecca violence broke in Tehran on Saturday, angry mobs attacked the Saudi Arabian Embassy 3 O" *- M Men's Cord Shorts Assorted colors, waist sizes 30-38. $12 Value Men's OP, Hobiit- Surfer's Alliance Sc reen Print T-Shirts Assorted < cilurs.
