IMPERIAL Chemical Indus- 
trie* is to make an early repay- 
ment of £ Mm. in 031 loans on 
which it has made an exchange 
loss of just over £40m. 

The company says it docs 
not regard the exchange loss 
as serious in view of the 
matching asset* in Germany 
which have correspondingly 
had an exchange gain. 

But the German assets con- 
sist largely of an artificial 
fibres operation which has had 
great trading difficulties. 

The reason for early repay- 
ment is that the interest cost 
on the Joans is higher than 
the market rale. The coupons 
on the three loans, due to be 
repaid In 19$5 and 1986. range 
from 8 lo 8! per cent. 

ICI estimated yesterday that 
in present market conditions 
ihe company could obtain 
money in Germany at a 
cheaper rale, say 6 per cent., 
even Tor longer-term money. 

In the circumstances it 
would he ” illogical ** nol to 
make an early repayment. 

Under ihe terms of thc 
loans, ICI is able to repay at 
only J 1 to 2 per cent above 
Ibeir nominal value. 


| THE Government had to inter- 
i vene in foreign exchange mar- 
;kets on a much smaller scale 
last month than in April in 
I order to meet its aim of keep- 
ing the pound stable. 

There was an underlying de- 
cline in thc U.K.’s official re- 
serves of 3650 m last month, 
compared with a fall of SJ.llbn 
m April. 

After taking account of new 
borrowing from overseas, thc re- 
serves dropp'-d last month by 
8377m overall in S16.66bn after 
a $3.2$hn decline in April. 

The figures .announced yester- 
day by Ihe Treasury, were much 
as ih’c market expected, anti 
sterling closed only 35 points 
down at $1.8230. The ’ trade- 
weishied index finished 022 
lower at 61.2. though dealers 
suspected some official support 
in order 10 prevent a further 
decline. 

The pound changed little over 
last month as a whole. The over- 


The public sector borrowing 
requirement for 1977-78 was 
£5.58bn, or £i-7£m less thnn 
provisionally estimated at the 
time of the Budget. Thp figures 
tentatively confirm indications 
of an acceleration in pnblic 
spending towards the end • of 
the financial year.

ICf is fairly liquid at the

the borrowings from its 
currency holdings. 

Thp January 25-year bond 
issue of 8175m in New York 
ha.-> lakpn carp of much or thc 
cnmpxiiv's long-term financing 
needs. Bui thc dollar borrow- 
ing was not specifically 
designed lo finance this DM 
repaymi-ni. 

ICI tines not always match 
its borrowings with assets. It 
has substantia! Swiss franc 
borrowings but only minimal 
assets in Switzerland. 

However, its DM borrowings, 
believed lo be about DM 700m 
before this DM 280m repay- 
ment, are exceeded by the 
value of assets in Germany. 

The DM/slerllng exchange 
rate at the time one of the 
loans was taken out in 1971 
was 8.3647. Last night in 
London the rate was 3.7950. 


all level of support was lower 
than in April, partly because of 
the renewed weakness of tbe 
dollar during May. 

The intention appears to be 
j to absorb any short-term 
pressures — caused, say, by un- 
favourable economic statistics. 
But in the longer term, the aim 
remains that of allowing the 
exchange rale to he determined 
primarily by market force? and 
] of ensuring that competitiveness, 
] measured by relative labour costs, 
is at last year’s average levels. 

The official view— without com- 
plete data avatlahle— is that a 
large part of the 53.04bo under- 
lying decline in the reserves in 
tbe last three months probably 
represents a withdraw :•! of pa it 
of the very large speculative in- 
flows attracted early last autumn 
when sterling was being held 
down. The inflows amounted to 
S3bo in October alone. 

Apart from underlying out- 


193 1976 1977 1978 


Hows, the reserves have been 
reduced front their peak level 
of $20.6Sho at the end of January 
by substantial repayments of tbe 
UK's official overseas debts. 

Repayments of public sector 
debt last month amounted to 
only £7$ni and were more than 
offset by new borrowing of 
#35Itn. almost entirely from the 
i«sue oi Government bonds in 
the New York capital market. 

The Government’s intention is 
spread the burden of debt repay- 
ment away from Ihe peak years 
of Ihe early 19S0s. The early 
repayment this year of loans 
totalling S3.14bn bas bpen 
announced, including $2hn to the 
International Monetary Fund. 

In addition nearly Slbn is 
due for repayment in 197S. so 
that borrowings of S4.1bn will at 
present be repaid this year The 
total may rise to around $4.5bn 
or so by the end of the year. 

This has partly been offset by 
new’ borrowing with maturity 
dates from the mid -1980s onwards. 
This amounts to S1.2hn since last 
October. Thi< programme will 
continue and the markel expects 
JbaJ the Governnivni will tap the 
New York market again. 

Thc rate on Treasury bills 
rn*c sharply ,<t yesterday's 
weekly tender to a level which 
would have trigger*! an increase 
in the Bank of England’s mini- 
mum lending rate to 9! per cent 
under the market-related for- 
mula which was abandoned last 
week. 

The Bank fixed MLR at an 
unchanged 9 per cent on Thurs- 
day under tbe new administered 
system.

Although share prices in the USA have recently moved 
■upwards, they are still near their lowest point for well over 
two years. 

We believe that at present they still offer excellent value 
to the investor who’s prepared to lookahead. 

A simple way to invest in the USA- and in other _ 
overseas markets to the extent that changing conditions 
may suggest -is to buy Midland Drayton International 
Units. 

Worldwide Portfolio 

This trust aims for capita) gTowth from a diversified 
worldwide portfolio. Currently, 67% of the fund is invested 
in North America. 14% in the Far East, 5% in U.K. 
interna tionaJs, and 4% in Europe. 

Since ite inception in December 1969, the offer price nf 
Distribution Units has increased by 106.8% (as at 1st June 
1973) , compared with a rise of only 51.5% in the F.T. 
Actuaries All -Share Index over the same period. 

The investment managers, Drayton Montagu Portfolio 
Management, believe that prospects for further growth are 
good, but unitholders should regard their investment as a 
long-term one. 

At the offer price oF51.7p on 1st June 1978, the 
estimated gross yield was £2.49% p.a. 

The price of units and tbe income from them can go 
down as well afi up. 

To buy units simply fill in the coupon and return it 
to us, or hand it in at any hraneb of Midland Bank, 
Clydesdale Bank or Northern Bank .

BY ROBERT GRAHAM 


MADRID. June 2. 


MOSCOW. June 2. 
U.S. SECURITY men burst in oo 
a Russian inside a secret elec- 
tronic listening post after crawl- 
ing down a tunnel discovered 
under their Moscow embassy, 
informed sources said to-day. 

Tbe startled technician was 
sealed in front of a bank of con- 
soles and Hcd when the Ameri- 
cans entered, they said. Details 
of the dramatic encounter 
emerged after a Washington 
announcement last night that the 
United States bad protested to 
the Soviet Union over bugging 
of the embassy. 

Official spokesmen in Washing- 
ton aod at the embassy here said 
that bugging devices were found 
in the building earlier this week. 
But details provided by various 

sources indicated that the alleged 
Soviet eavesdropping operation 
was one or the most extensive 
ever uncovered by a Western 
embassy here. 

The State Department dis- 


rs A SURPRISE move Spain's 
second largest bank. Banesto. 
to-day took over the administra- 
tion of the medium-sized Banco 
Coca, controlled by the Coca 
family. At the same time 
Ear.es to issued a statement 
guaranteeing the money of all 
Coca’s depositors and clients. 

The decision was taken yes- 
terday as a resuit of & scries 
of top-level meetings between 
the two banks, and with the 
approval of the Bank of Spain. 

11 comes only a week before 
the formal merger between lh.; 
two banks, announced last 
December, is due to take place. 


According to Banesto. the 
takeover of the acimir.lslraUur

One of the men charged. Sr. 


Coca is distinct from the legal Enrique Minarro Montoya, was 


aspects of the merger. 

Banesto is understood to 
hate been obliged to lake this 
action because of evidence of a 
withdrawal of deposits from 
Banco Coca in recent days. The 
withdrawal appeared to be 
related to revelations that In- 
speciors from the Minis! ry of 
F i na nee were i n vest jga ting 
property cleats in Malaga by 
companies with which Banco 
Coca is allegedly involved, and 
further the publicity following 
the charging of three men with 
alleged breach of foreign cx- 


until recently a senior hoard 
member of Baoca Coca. 

Banca Coca on Wednesday 
issued a statement denying any 
involvement in breaching ex- 
change control regulations 2nd 
insisted that the various inves- 
tigations being carried out on 
its activity were solely designed 
to finalise its proposed merger 
with Banesto. 

Banking sources say' it is too 
soon to speculate on how 
Banesto’s action will affect the 
nature of its merger with Cora. 
Under the terms of the merger 


already approved by the share- 
holders of the two banks, tbe 
Coca family wiil become the 
largest single shareholder with 

approximately 8 per cent, of 
Baneslo’s equity. Sr. Ignacio

In-itsCa^liaal survey of build-

Kawdea;;- the surveyors show 
that .amnugh the number of 
societies declined from 5?6 in

of branches has increased hy 
250 to 300 a year . throughout

• This has- increased the-polarisa-

There are still some 250 societies

The Abtaey now leads the rest of 
the movement with 487 branches. 

The Halifax, which is the 
largest of the societies in terms 
of assets, now has 374 branches. 
23 more than in 1976. The 
Nationwide has 329 branches, 
Leeds Permanent 264 and Wool- 
wich 220. 

Hillier Parker notes that the 
growth of societies’ branches 
outpaces growth in any other 
area of the retail property mar- 
ket. 

It believes that the expansion 
of brandies may begin to slow as 
the movement nears an optimum 
national coverage of between 
4.500 and 5.000 outlets. 

The leading societies have a 
similar . number of branches to 
the leading retail multiple 
groups;’ but they are still over- 
shadowed by the main clearing 
batiks each of which run branch 
networks of several -thousand 
offices.

WELSH local authorities under-

the second financial year run- 
ning. Mr. Alec Jones. Parlia- 
mentary Under Secretary for 
Wales, told a conference in 
Llandrindod Wells yesterday. 

This is in spile r»f the fact 
: that Wales has the worst housing 
.slock of any reqion of the UK. 

; Nearly one in five houses is still 
| officially classified as . unfit

I Mr. Jones told the National 
Housing and Town Planning Con- 
ference that some £16m was 
underspent in 1977-7S and there 
were indications of further 
underspending in the current 
financial year. In 1976-77. Welsli 
local authorities also failed In 
spend £12m of their housing 
budget. 

The Minister attributed the 
shortfall to local authorities 
learning to live with cash limits. 

It made matters very difficult

Wales in his arguments with the 
Treasury over the size of the 
housing budget for Wales.

A ROLLING programme for 
largo-scale electrification nr 
British Rail's mam lines i.s 
likely to be recommended by a 
Briltsh Rail and Transport 
[Department v.urkiog party. 

The working party, under the 
joint chairman. hip of Mr. David 
Bowick u British Bait vice- 
chairman. /ind Mr. John Palmer. 
l-nder-Secrelary for Railways tn 
the Department of Transport, is 
due to hold its arst formal meet- 
inq later this month. 

It is understood fmm prelimi- 
nary meetings that the working 
party favours some form of 
rolling programme for electrifica- 
tion. probably based on sugges- 
tions made by Mr. William 
Rodgers. Transport Secretary, in 
, -j discussion paper published last 
! week. 

; He suggested that large-scale 
electrification rould create jobs 
land save 700.000 mpnc* of fuel 
oil a year while helping to u«e 
Britain's present and future sur- 
plus of generating capacity, 
i Britain lies well down the 


international table for railway 
electrification, with only 2.341 
miles or 21 per cent nf route 
mileage electrified. 

Electrification has taken pktee 
on a selective and piecemeal 
basis. Mr. Rodgers suggests a 
ihw-xlage accumulating pro- 
gramme covering 17 years. ' 

The first st use. called Situation 
A. would raise ihe_ electrified 
route mileage by 370 nules io 
nbour 2.700' mile.? With infra- 
structure capital costs' of £60tn. _ 
This would complete the Inter-' 
City elements already included 
in British Rail's current ton? 
term investment forecast. 

The second. stage. Situation B, 
w.iiUd increase electrified track 
mileage to 4.10Q utiles al a cost 
nf £350111. and would electrify 
primary main routes. 

Stage three. Situation C. would 
increase electrified track hy 2.970 
mile-j to 5.30U miles at a cost-nT 
f52ftiit. and result in the electri- 
fication nf nearly all ibe 
remainder o( Inter-City routes. 


Britain ‘leads world’ in research 
into energy from ocean waves 


UK fuel-saver may 
be made overseas 


FINANCIAL TIMES REPORTER 

BRITAIN IS “ way ahead " in the 
research and development of 
systems for generating power 
from ocean waves, accord- 
ing to Mr. Clive Grove-Palmer, 
programme manager responsible 
for wave energy at' the Govern- 
ment's energy technology support 
unit at Harwell. 

The current official hudget for 
research into these devices — It 
was £6S.0Q0 when research began 
in 1974 — is about £2.5m. or about 
a third of all the funds available 


energy sources They include 
solar system*, tidal barrages, 
wind machines, and organic 
energy conversion projects. 

Most observers expect this 
budget to be significantly 
increased soon, reflecting sus- 


tained entbusiasni among senior 
energy officials and Government 
Ministers for the development of 
alternatives to nuclear and fossil 
fuel. 

A few weeks ago Mr. Alex 
Eadie. Under-Secretary of Slate 

for Energy, said wave power was 
“ not jus) » boffin.*’ piped ream “ 
when be attended the first *ea 
trials of Sir Christopher 
Cockerell’s energy raft, one nf 
four devims, heine investigated 
with finam-i.'l .support from the 
Departmem nf Energy. 

This Week. Mr. Stephen Salter 
showed at the University of 
Edinburgh :< new and enlarged 
wave tank in a £100.000 labtira- 
lory specially designed to tett 
the Salic i ” duck ‘—a system of 
oscillating vanes, regarded hy 
some as the front r.inner for a 


viable wave energy technology. 

Tbe new tank can model three 
dimentional w aves on a 1/30 
scale, simulating the effects of a 
teal sea on arrays of “duck" 
moored oflf-sbore. These will con- 
vert the wave energy into 
hydraulic energy which will be 
used to drive Pelton wheel 
turbines. 

Mr. Salter, who gave evidence 
al the Wtndscale inquiry in 
.support of alternative energy 
possibilities, said he believed 
ihut. if pri-cJ correctly, wave 
deuce.* could produce elec*, rid Ly 
at a cost of roughly E1.0U0 per 
i i(3*l ailed kilowatt in four or five 
years. This is generally con- 
sidered to be the break-even 
figure for any system in compete 
with existing methods of pro- 
timing grid power. 


BY SUE CAMERON 

A BRITISH invention, said to he 
capable of culling motor fuel 
crisis l»y 25 per cent, is likely li> 
he manufactured overseas 
because of Ihe lack of interest 
shown :n it by UK companies. 

Dr. Alan Williams, a mech- 
anical engineering researcher 
from Cardiff said yesterday he is 
negotiating manufacturing licen- 
sing rights for his petrol-saving 
device with a French concern. 
The deal, which would give the 
French manufacturing rights for 
the whole of Europe including 
the UK, almost certainly would go 
through unless British concerns 
started laking a real interest in 
the device. 

Ur. Williams and Mr. Ken 
Pleass his step-brother, also a 
mechanical engineer, took out a 
provisional patent on their di-vicv 
— known as a ca recon eeunoiniM-r 
—in 1977 and sub-eon traded pro 
duct ion of it began last week in 
Wales. Nearly 2.000 a week, arc 
being mamifaci tired and “.000 a 
month will be exported to 
Scandinavia. 


Dr. Williams says fha? about 
30 per cent of the petrol used 
in motor rn zincs escapes down 
the wall of the carburettor and 
is lost. His economiser stops the 
petrol escaping, collects it. re- 
vapourises it and pushes it 
directly back into the induction 
manifold. 

Tests of the device at the 
U Diversity of Wotes have shown 
it can bring about a mean 
saving of 25 per cent of petrol. 

Negotiations are under way to 
grant licensing rights for produc- 
tion of the economiser in Austra- 
lia and South Africa. 

U.S. companies have shown 
interest in it. Dr. Williams said 
reaction m Britain had been 
extremely slow. 

'■ I would like in grant licens- 
ing rich's to a I. i K organisation 
and have the economiser manu- 
f.vwred m Wales," he said. 
** Bui all the people who have 
approached us in the UK have

S:;. ' .^fi^actody receive a General Secoi«lary School 


on non-Qatari teachers, which is contrary to the State's 
poKcy of Qatarization. With this in mind, holders of the 
Primary Stage Teaching Diploma have had their basic sal- 
aries increased, and newly introduced three-year in-service 
courses enable them to upgrade their qualification to the 
Diploma of Qualified Teacher. The University runs evening 
courses for intermediary and secondary school teachers 
which last eighteen months, and qualify the participants for 
^General Diploma of Education, besides offering the pos- 
- sibility off further study abroad. 

The first 117 graduates of the University of Qatar, 79 
of them women, received their degrees last year, and SI 
teachers were awarded diplomas. Enrolment in the academic 
year 1977/78 was 925, of whom nearly two-thirds were 
women. A self-contained campus is under construction at 
an estimated cost of QR 740 million (.over £105 million). 
The State Library, with its magnificent collection of rare 
manuscripts and books, will eventually be relocated there. 

The University is open to any Arab student whose 
father is resident in Qatar, and provides scholarships to 
Arab-speaking students from friendly countries as far afield 
as Ghana and Tanzania. Arabic is the medium of instruc- 
tion, though the English Department provides courses for all 
. faculties. The American credit-hour system is used. 

In the academic year 1976/77 902 students were sent 
abroad on scholarships, compared with 209 in 1970/71. 
They are scattered over 15 countries in the Arab World, 
Asia, Europe and North America, with the majority in 
Egypt, Lebanon and the USA. 

Adult education receives a great deal of emphasis, 
hardly surprising given the swift pace of development in 
Qatar in the last few years. Government employees can 
attend three-year evening courses leading to better jobs, and 
• by mid-1977 over 2,000 attended. A number of specialized 


Faculty of Education Building, University of Qatar 


institutions exist: the Regional Training Centre, set up with 
the help of the ILO in 1970, whose courses now conform 
with the London Institute's City and Guilds; the Ministry of 
Education’s Training and Career Development Department, 
which trains Qatari civil servants for up-grading and to 
replace expatriates; the Management Institute, providing a 
two-year in-service course for Qatari employees an admin- 
istrative posts; and the Foreign Language Institute, provid- 
ing free tuition with the latest techniques in a number of 
languages, including Arabic for foreigners. 

Jn 1977 over 2,000 women enrolled in the newly 

established adult literacy courses inaugurated at purpose- 
built centres. 720 men were already attending similar 
courses. 

A number of private schools also exist, catering mainly 
for the children of expatriates. 

Qatar provides its youth with a highly advanced 
educational system in schools built to the latest internation- 
al specifications and housing the most modern equipment 
and teaching aids. The ratio of pupils to teachers is 23:1, on 
a par with the most advanced nations. Enormous strides 
have been made in the last few years. The importance 
attached to education was again emphasized earlier this year 
by His Highness the Heir Apparent and Defence Minister 
Sheikh. Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani on the 17th anniversary 
of the National Day of Education, and its role is clearly 
stated in the State’s provisional Constitution, which calls 
for ‘the promotion and guarantee of education as a means 
to expand culture and as the pillar of progress and the well- 
being of society’.

be seen from these figures, changes in 
exchange rates and in the investment currency

Remember the price of units and the 
income from them can go down as well as up. 


Although there are still a number of major

Disturbance from 
cattle 


l DISCUSSING home contents 
insurance a few weeks ago I 
asked the question — which 
would you rather face, an 
increase in the rate of premium 
that you pay (perhaps in the 
j order of 20 per cent to 25 per 
I cent) on a substantial excess 
(of £50 or so which would 
leave you having to meet not 
| only small claims but part of 
larger claims out of your own 
pocket)? This question is per- 
haps theoretic rather than real 
{because premium increases and 
excesses are underwriting 
measures which insurers are 
more Mkely to use in combina- 
tion rather than in the 
alternative. 


Not SO 



insurers to pay. proportionately 
on any claim if at the time of 
the loss the sum insured does 
not equate with the full value 
of the property at risk. 

I am constantly - hearing It 
said by brokers — not the large 
national ones who try to avoid 
handling personal' insurances, 
but the smaller provincial and 
high street .firms — that modern 
house contracts are now far too 
complicated and moreover , far 
too expensive to sell jtp ‘the 


A gable of my house abuts a 
field and in inclement weather 
the cattle therein often shelter 
against the wall, banging it and 
dislodging stones and, at night, 
disturbing us. Have I a 
remedy ? 

You may have a claim in 
nuisance for the damage to the 
wall, provided the dislodging of 
stones is not contributed to by 
want of repair of the wall. We 
think that you would not have 
any basis an which to claim 
damages or seek an injunction 
for the disturbance of occupiers 
of the house. 


Most major insurers charge 
124 pence per cent for buildings 
cover and 20 pence to 25 pence 
per cent for contents insurance: 
these rates are for the best risks 
and you pay a lot more if you 
have a thatched or cedar roof 
or a fiat in the North West 
postal district of London. But 
it is possible to pay lower 
prices than these and a new 
contract introduced at the 
beginning of May by National 
Employers Mutual — its Home 
Economy Plan — cuts out many 
of the frills that the modern 
household package provides, 
but still affords basic material 
damage cover, fire, theft and so 
on. at rates well below current 
market prices.

Genuine joint 
account 


You have stressed recently that 
joint accounts must be 
genuinely operated by both 
joint owners in order to avoid 
having to apply for probate. 

My wife and I both earn and 
each pays moneys into a joint 
account for housekeeping 
purposes, hut I write all the 


to have further defects 
remedied until such time as 
they cause trouble, could we 
deduct the notional cost of the 
work required ? 

You can do the work and deduct 
the cost of the materials, but 
not your own labour (or sue for 
the baiance). But you should 
not wait too long to act, as your 
claim may be difficult to estab- 
lish at a later date. After six 
years (without acknowledg- 
ment) both your claim and the 
builder’s claim for the price will 
be barred. 


My will leaves my estate 

(£70,000) In trust to my wife 
for life and then to my two 
chldren. (a) Is this advisable 
in the light of CTT? (b) Do 
you advise a division of my 
assets 50/50 between my wife 
and myself? (c) If so, I 
shall transfer the non -matri- 
monial property (£20,000) from 
myself to my wife as a gift. 
What will the stamp duty be ? 
and what do I state on form 
19 in place of the words 
“ for the consideration of 
£...”? (d) What would be 
required In written form to 
establish words of severance, 
in order that my wife could 
become a tenant in common 
and so by will pass her share 
in the property to the 
children ? 


In the absence of full details 
of your fiscal position we can 
only advise in very general 
terms. However: 

(a) The formula used in your 
present will is unlikely to be 
advantageous in present cir- 
cumstances. 


(b) A division of assets with 
your wife is advisable. It may 
be that a division in propor- 
tions other than 50/50 could he 
more useful — this would de- 
pend on your wife's assets and 
age, and on the ultimate desti 
nation of assets. Sample sums 
worked out with other fractions 
will help you decide. 

(c> Stamp duty will be based 
on the current value and must 
be adjudicated. If the value is 
below £20.000 and a certificate 
of value at that sum given in 
the transfer no stamp duty will 
be payable. The words to be 
substituted are: “In considera- 
tion of the natural love and 
affection of the transferor for 
the transferee." 

(d) . . . “ to hold the same as 
tenants in common in equal 
shares in equity." 


N-EJVL will be charging S 
pence per cent for buildings, 15 
pence per cent for contents, but 
before you rush to buy I must 
add that insurers have set a 
minimum premium of £10 for 
the provision of either build- 
ings or contents cover. You 
[should also note two main res- 
trictions: you -have to pay the 
first £25 of each claim and you 
have to accept an under- 
insurance clause which entitles 


ordinary householder. Their 
cry is for greater simplicity and 
lower rates, although I am not 
certain that they accept that 
this logically involves a reduc- 
tion of cover. 

If these brokers are right and 
there is a real demand for 
cheaper basic household cover 
then NEM should attract a deal 
of business, and other insurers 
may well introduce- similar 
economy contracts. 

With the sun blazing down, 
these last few days many 
people must have thankfully 
dismissed from their minds the 
rain and floods of the last few 
months. But all the evidence 
coming from the main house 
insurers is that on the domestic 
buildings front there was a 
tremendous surge in the num- 
ber of claims notified in the 
first quarter of '"the year, by 
about 50 per cent or more. 
What this involves in claims 


costs cannot yet 
but some of the published com- 
ments accompanying the 
companies’ first quarter pro - 
stonal trading results underline 
the unhappy " winter that 
insurers have had — first tne 
extra losses due to the firemen s 
strike and then the hard winter. 

Both batre provided increased 
pressure for the rating changes, 
hi price and cover; on domestic 
buildings so long predicted bur 
s till not implemented. 

On the contents side Insurers- 
make most of their payments 
on fire and theft claims. Indi-. 
vidual companies’ experience 
must vary considerably but 
most reckon to spend up to 80 
per. cent of their claims outgo 
under these two headings: it is 
significant that at the- present 
time threequarters of this 
amount, getting on for 60 per 
cent of total expenditure/ is 
now spent in settling theft 
claims that arise particularly in 
London and the , other major 
urban areas. The Writing 1 seems 
on the wall that urban and 
suburban policyholders, will 
soon have to pay a lotmore for 
their contents insurance than" 
they do now. - 

■ One. of the features of many 
modern contents policies is. the 
provision, of “New for Old 
Cover”: individual companies’ 
practice varies but this cover - 
is normally provided for furni- 
ture . and other consumer 
durables with a low rate of 
depreciation, for a given period 
from date of purchase and per- 
haps for a maximum of five 
years. 

From the policyholder's. point 
of view this cover has been and 
still is an excellent buy because

Development in the dry season 


Trials of travelling to work 


THE DRY season is about to 
start in the Northern Territory 
of Australia. The floods follow- 
ing the heavy rain nf the wet 
season seep away. <the rivers 
cease flowing. Over the coming 
months it is the Australian Gov- 
ernment's hope that construc- 
tion wiH start at the rich ura- 
nium deposits of the region. 


The hope this week began to 
change into reality when the 
Parliament in Canberra passed 
a package of six bills setting 
out the conditions tor the deve- 
lopment of an Australian ura- 
nium mining industry. 


stance of political develop- 
ments. 

But there is another point. 
Now that the Bills have passed, 
the attitude to companies solely 
dependent on uranium like 
Pancontinental is changing. 
Investment is becoming more 
closely linked to potential earn- 
ings than to airy aspirations 
and projections. 


Arguably it was the most 
important event in the 1978 
Australian mining calendar, the 
most significant step taken on 
uranium since Mr. Justice Fox. 
3-lmost exactly a year ago, pro- 
duced a framework in which the 
Government cnuld proceed with 
uranium mining while caring 
for the special interests which 
would be affected by it 


It is a natural development 
now that the anguished 
Australian debate on whether 
uranium deposits should be 
developed at all draws to a 
close. But while this debate 
has been waged — and it has 
lasted since the early 1970s — 
Australia's competitors in the 


MIN3NG 

PAUL CHEE5ERIGHT 


But there was one thing miss- 
ing from the legislative struc- 
ture — and that was the power to 
establish a uranium export 
authority, along the same lines 
as the Canadian Atomic Energy 
Board. Mr. Don™ Anthony, the 
Deputy Prime Minister, jumped 
over the gap when he told 
Parliament that he would 
exercise control over sales con- 
tracts. 

The Bills have not passed 
through without a struggle. The 
states have been anxious to pre- 
serve their rights and tricky 
constitutional issues have been 
raised. This was reflected by 
Mr. Anthony when he said he 
would not proceed with legisla- 
tion on the export authority 
until there had been consul La- 
Lions with the states. 

Given all the speculation 
about the future of the uranium 
mining companies, it is a little 
surprising that the market 
reaction to Parliament's action 
has been at best lukewarm. The 
explanation probably lies in the 
technical state of the market. 

For more than a fortnight 
there was a heady boom in 
prices and the spirit of the 
Poseidon days of 1969-71 seemed 
pervasive. This continued into 
rhe first half of this week. 
After that there was a pause 
as the market consolidated arrd 
investors in some of the more 
speculative issues took their 
profits. 

This latter period started just 
as the Australian Parliament 
was -pushing the six Bills 
through, and, in the event, 
the technical factors governing 
the market's movements proved 
more important than the sub- 


international uranium market 
have been expanding as quickly 
as they can. 


Further evidence of this came 
in the annual report of General 
Mining, the South African 
mining finance house built on 
Afrikaner financial interests. 
General Mining is clearly on 
the verge of hringing a new 
deposit in Namibia (South West 
Africa) to production. 

Mr. W. ,T. de Villiers. the 
chairman, stated that at the 
Langer Heinrich deposit near 
Swakopmund a prospecting 
trench had been excavated 
partly to provide ore for a pilot 
plant. This is part of the pro- 
cess “ to determine the optimum 
design parameters tor a future 
recovery plant." Meanwhile, 
marketing and financing investi- 
gations continue. 

General Mining produces 
about 26 per cent of South 
Africa's uranium and its mines 
account tor about 18 per cent 
of the national gold output. 
These two minerals provided 
14.5 per cent of the group’s 
attributable income last year, a 
slightly smaller portion than in 
197B. 

But the breadth of its 
interests has widened since it 
took a controlling interest in 
Union Corporation. Its tentacles 
stretch into the corners of the 
South African economy and it 
is now second only to Anglo 
American among the major 
South African mining finance 
houses. 

Despite this, the group’s con- 
fidence about results for 1978 
is muted. Mr. dc Villiers would 
bo no further than saying that 
they “should once again be 
satisfactory." 


This is hardly surprising in 
view of the problems he listed: 
weak demand tor asbestos and 
chrome ore, overcapacity in thp 
international ferro-alloy indus- 
try and the low level of capital 
work which is affecting indus- 
trial subsidiaries. 

He is no doubt finding some 
■compensation in the movements 
of the gold price, which this 
week climbed $5.50 to $185,375 
an ounce. The rise in the price 
over 1977 helped the results 
and the market has since 
remained firm. But all is not 
well in thp gold industry. 

Mr. de Villiers urged both the 
State and the industry to 
examine the high rate of pro- 
duction costs. He alluded to 
the possibility of a decline in 
the number of mines able to 
produce gold profitably. “ Pos- 
sible unemployment resulting 
from the closure of mines and 
the decrease in foreign 
exchange earnings are particu- 
larly important." be stated. 

It was a warning of trouble 
to come. Productivity has 
declined and in 19/ 1 the gold 
mines adminstered by General 
Mining had overall costs of 
R218.56m (£ 133.29m) compared 
with R166.29m in the previous 
year. 

The costs phenomenon is not 
peculiar to the South African 


mining industry. It is a factor 
which has made investment 
policy more cautious and will 
retard general recovery when 
the strains of recession ease. In 
Canada, at least, recovery looks 
as it it is some years away. 

Mr. Mervya Upham, the presi 
dent of the Mining Association 
of Canada, told the annual meet- 
ing in Ottawa that there will be 
two or three more difficult years 
It would be in the early to 
mid-1980s that the better times 
would come. 

For all that he was encouraged 
by the underlying strength for 
a broad range nf minerals 
Demand was not increasing in 
all cases at the high rates of 
decade ago, but the fundamental 
strength was evident. 

If there is one section of the 
industry which has been un 
affected by the general gloom 
it is diamonds. This week De 
Beers Consolidated announced 
that it would spend R39m 
(£24.8m) on a scheme to treat 
the accumulated dumps at four 
of its Kimberley mines. 

This will extend ihe life of 
the mines to about 20 years. The 
idea is to use the more exact 
recovery techniques which have 
developed over the last ten 
years to find diamonds in the 
waste which has built, up since 
the turn of the century. 


ONE OF the Inland Revenues 
strictest rules is that travelling 
expenses from home to office 
cannot be “deducted." This 
slightly odd jargon stems from 
the concept embodied in the tax- 
law applying to employees earn- 
ing £7,500 or over (£8,500 from 
April 6 1979 if the Finance Bill 
survives >, which makes liable 
to tax all reimbursements to an 
employee in respect of expenses 
he has incurred in and about 
his employer's business. He is 
then entitled to deduct travel- 
ling expenses necessarily in- 
curred. and other expenses 
incurred wholly exclusively and 
necessarily in the performance 
of his duties. 

The home to office rule is 
strict, hut there have been tax- 
payers who have proved in the 
courts that all rules must have 
exceptions. In this area we all 
want to be exceptional, so let 
us take a close look at one who 
has shown the way. 

A Dr. Owen (another one), 
had a part time employment in 
the la re 1960s with a hospital 
in Haverfordwest, although he 
lived 15 miles away in Fish- 
guard. and it was in the latter 
town that he was mainly occu- 
pied — he was in general 
practice there. 

When he claimed his travel- 
ling expenses to Haverfordwest 
and back, and had his claim 
rejected, he appealed to the 
General Commissioners of 
Income Tax. He proved in 
front of them that all his duties 


nor that he might be called on, could not therefore be 
or might volunteer, to give “ hecessary" 
advice on the telephone. Lord In mother.- later, case Lord

for the hospital related to emer- 
gency cases. The hospital would 
telephone him at home. He 
would generally give instruc- 
tions on the telephone to the 

hospital staff, for instance to ^ 

prepare the patient for an responsibilities with them comm7 n “ts‘areUw£rs wJrihr of 

operation. He would then set 

off to the hospital by car. 

What Dr. Owen also proved 
to the Commissioners was that

his responsibility for the patient 
began a« soon as he received a 
telephone call from the hospital. 
Such questions of fact are 
decided by the Commissioners, 
ir the case is appealed to the 
High Court or beyond, the facts 
already found by the Commis- 
sioners are sacrosanct, and not 
subject to judicial review 
(except in the uniikely event 
that the Courts consider a par- 
ticular finding so perverse that 
□o right thinking Commissioner 
could have reached it on the 
evidence before him). 

When Lord Wilberforce heard 
Dr. Owen's case in the Court of 
Appeal, he accepted that the 
travelling expenses were deduct- 
ible. He said that it would not 
have been sufficient had Dr. 
Owen merely been on standby.

a moral in that! Personal money

sured up to £500 while medical 
expenses of up to £500 per 
person will also be paid. 
Thoughts of macabre accidents 
seldom spring to mind when 
marriage is being considered 
but the policy also takes into 
account death (a £5,000 lump 
sum in ihe case of the husband 
t £1.000 in ihe case of the wife), 
l»*s of a limb or eye (same 
figures.) and disablement (£20 
a week for the husband, £10 for 
the wife). 

Another, less comprehensive 
and little-known policy has been 
available for 20 years from a 
firm of sub-contract brokers 
Adam Brothers. Underwritten 
by a Lloyds syndicate rates 
here are usually negotiable and 
there are no limits to the 
amount of cover which can be 
taken out. The basic policy will 
insure ail '* unrecoverable 


costs” against the sickness ur 
death of bride and groom. For 
the privilege, you will pay j 
per cent of the total insured 
sum. On top of that, you can 
add cover for other specified 
participants, such- as brides- ; 
maids, best man, page or grand- 
mother. 

The extra premium depends 
on the age and health of the, 
individual and can vary’ from S 
per cent for a small child to li 
per cent, for an ageing grand- 1 
parent. Adam Brothers says 
the policy is only taken up once 
or twice a month. The firm 
does not deal direct with the 
public so contact your local 
broker for further advice. Some

LOCAL AUTHORITIES and the 
Inland Revenue are bulb much 
maligned organisations, hut the 
first at least can offer a reason- 
able return on a cash investment- 
And investors can look upon 
such an investment as virtually 
as sound as a gilt stock. 

Investment tn local authori- 
ties can be channelled through 
one of several ways, hut basic- 
ally investments break down in- 
to two broad areas. These are 
slocks and bonds which are 
quoted on the Stock Exchange 
nr direct investments with an 
authority which are not negot- 
iable. and with very few oxcep- 
lions lock the holder in for the 
! duration of the bonds. 

Each Wednesday, a list i« pub- 
. lislied of authorities which have 
placed bonds on the stock niar- 
1 ket. Most or these have a life r#r 
one year, though each week a 
tmaUerin? of bonds up to live 
years are included. There are 
even a few variable rale bonds. 
All lhu issues share common 
coupons for the various length* 
of life. For example, this week 
on*' year bonds were placed wlih 
a coupon of 9^ per cent, while a 
few three year issues were 
offered at 11* per cent 

For the invi«ior. the advan- 
tage of these issues is that they 
can be bought and so id in the 
stuck market at will. Though 
it is worth noting that must of 
them are relatively small issues 
— amounts of £250,000 and 
£500.000 are common — which 
means that dealing may prove 
difficult. 

The other quoted vehicle for

enticing 


sums of stock through a bank

investment can be found in 
Lincolns 13 per cent stock 
dated 1980. There the running 
yield is 12 * per cent — (he stock 
stands above par — and the 
redemption return is 11 per 
cent. 

investors can huv very small 


Direct investment in an 
authority normally takes one of 
two forms, either replying to 
advertisements or for large 
organised investors direct deal- 
ing through the money market. 

Many authorities advertise in 
the Press. The popular Sunday 
papers carry a fair number of 
advertisements asking for 
money, and the Financial Times 
carries a block selecting a few 
authorities ever}' week. 

The rales and dates of the 
bonds vary, and investors should 
simp around to get the best deal. 
Sometimes two authorities can 
he offering on the same day 
bonds oF identical duration, with 
different rates. 

The Loans Bureau is a good 
line of attack, for they can 
supply a comprehensive list of 
local authorities wanting money 
and what they are prepared tb 
offer. Their phone number is 
01-S28 7S55. 


But with Hus type of invest- 
ment there is tin secondary 
market so investors must be 
prepared to leave their invest- 
ment alone for the life of the 
bond. 

For larger investors, and here 
we are really talking of a deal 
of at least £50.000. investment 
through one of the money 
brokers or money sides of the 
large stockbrokers is the 
obvious answer.

cover that one :has lost con- 


siderable pension rights on 
change of jobs compared with 
staying put and the Govern- 
ment and Trade Unions do not 
think this is right at all. They 
consider that an. employee 
should get the same pension 
irrespective of how many jobs 
he has in a working life. It 
has asked the Occupational 
Pensions Board to look Into this 
question, and the. Board, being 
a democratic organisation. Is 
seeking the views of indi- 
viduals as well as employers 
and the pensions industry. 

You may think this move 
superflous in that it is self 


evident that all individuals will 
want full transferability of 
pension rights on change of 
job. Brit the cost may mean 
giving up the right to refunds 
altogether — you cannot have 
your cake and eat iL But the 
OFB is discovering, not for the 
first time, that there is very 
little published information on 
current pension scheme prac- 
tice fid so it would like to hear 
from you. If you feel strongly

THE BISE J» ihc general level 
nf interest rales, which has 
been reflected in a 21 poim 
increase in the cost of over- 
drafts sim-e the Budget, has now 
begun to work through to the 
raics being charged by the 
hanks on their personal loans. 
These loans, for fixed periods 
and ai fixed rates, are widely 
used as a method of unsecured 
consumer finance, and ihe 
charges made are chanced a 
good deal less frequently than 
the base rales for overdraft 
(ending.

example, bringing its rates down 
last October, the Co-op Bank 
cutting its loan rate to 14 per 
rent in December and Lloyds 
coming down only in late 
January. Until the latest in- 
creases spread throughout the 
system, therefore, there is for 
the time being a fairly wide 
spread of rates being offered by 
different banks. 

The changes have also again 
presented the problems which 
are regularly associated with 
ihe distinctions which need to 
be drawn between two ways nf 
describing the interest rate 
charged. National West- 
minster. Ihe first to move up 
this time, announced (he change 
in terms of a I per cent rise in 
rhe flat rate of interest charged 
on personal loans from TJ per 
cent to 81 per cent. 

This is the rate which i* 


charged on ihe initial amount 
of the loan: but it is not the 
true cost. Because the loan is 
repaid in instalments over its 
life, i lie average amount of 
hi * r rowing outstanding is 
around half the initial loan, 
and the true interest rale 
nearly double ihe fiat rale. 

For a two-year period, the 
most popular. NatWesfs new 
8] per cent flat rate is equiva- 
lent to a true interest rate nf 
16.7 per cent, a rise of 2 per 
cent front the previous level. 

Both Midland and Lloyds 
made similar changes 1« Nat- 
West. But in line with the 
emphasis or the consumer credit 
legislation, they both quoted 
only the true rate equivalents. 

Barclays, which has not so far 
favoured the upward trend, is 
the one which stands out. This 
hank not mily quotes in terms 
of a l me rate, hut also uses a 
constant rale. Ai present. Bar- 
clays is charging ai a rate of 
14.93 per cent, which was re-

CHESS 


games even against the strongest 
clubs in the major cities. 


LEONARD BARDEN 


CAPABLANCA, world champion 
from 1921 to 1927, was the finest 
simultaneous player of bis day 
and probably of all time. His 
strengths included total recall of 
all moves of every game, and an 
instant appreciation of position. 

In more recent times the most 
successful simui/players — among 
them Flohr. Smyslov and Karpov 
— have mostly been, like Capa, 
grandmasters with a preference 
for strategic chess and endings. 
This is not only an economic 
style for simultaneous play, but 
means that the opponents in an 
exhibition are forced into areas 
of the game where they are not- 
ably weak. 

Capa’s simul record, fully 
documented in David Hooper's 
The Vnhniywn Capablnnca (Bats- 
ford. £3,95) includes a selection 
of the best games from the 
Cuban cbampion's numerous 
European and American lours. 
His 1919 British tour, at the 
height of his fame and strength, 
was one of the most successful: 
the exhibitions almost ail took 
place over around 40 hoards but 
he never lost more than three 


This week's game is an echo 
of that tour: it took place in 
London on September 18. and 
Capa made a normal score for 
him of .36 wins, two draws and 
two losses. 

The venue was the Gambit 
Chess. Rooms, ic the now de- 
molished Budge Row off Cannon 
Street close to the Financial 
Times office, and that in itself 
deserves comment. The Gambit 
was for decades a focal point of 
London chess activity. Though 
best known for its lunch time 
play, it also provided a venue 
for major events such as the 
.Anglo-Soviet radio match of 
1946 and it ran a Saturday even- 
ing tournament at ten seconds a 
move which gave many young 
players their first taste of com- 
petition against the strongest ex- 
perts in London. 

It was no accident that the 
closing and demolition of the 
Gambit in the early 1950s was 
followed by a decade of stagna- 
tion in London chess with few 
new talents emerging until the 
growth in recent years of the 
weekend congresses". Apart from 
St. Bride’s Institute, the head- 
quarters of the London League, 
where there are severe limita- 
tions on space and no Sunday 
play, London still lacks a regular 
centre for evening and weekend 
chess and for running small 


national and international tour- 
naments. 

The contrast is marked with 
the celebrated Manhattan Chess 
G’-uh in New York, the Chess 
House in Stockholm, and the 
central facilities provided as a 
matter of course in major cities 
throughout Eastern Europe 

Many of its customers grum- 
bled at the Gambit’s frayed 
Edwardian ambiance, hut its 
presence to-day, or a substitute 
provided by a sympathetic busi- 
ness house, would be a major 
advance for British chess. 


But hack to Capahtanca and 
1919: the game below was sent 
to me by Maurice Fox. then a 
young engineering student who 
later emigrated to Canada where 
he won the national title eight 
times. Several decades later he 
completed a rare double when 
he heat Fischer, then a rising 
young master, at the 1956 
Canadian Open. 

Few can boast heating the two 
best-known chessplayers of all 
time, even when one game is a 
simul: the select list nf those 
who defeated both Capahlanca 
and Fischer in one-tn-nne play 
is Eliskases. Euwe, Keres and 
Reshevsky. 

As for the game, it is a remark- 
able con^asr between Capa's total 
stin«-*“ >- in the opening and 
Black's imaginative middle game 
tactics. By move 16. White is a 
pawn up with a fine position: 


and that fact evidently led to 
some underestimation of the 
opponent Simply 17 0-0 would 
leave Black little for his pawn: 
castling long, the champion 
found his own king a target.

• That said, even ignoring 


IF YOU really want to look 
comme iZ jaut on the beaches 
this summer there are several 
looks that are currently very 

fashionable. One-piece swimsuits 
have come back in a big way. 
All of you who remember the 
early films of Esther Williams 
and Betty' Grable and the days 
when swimsuits really had 
glamour will give a nostalgic 
welcome to a range of very 
glamorous one-piece swimsuits 
recently brought out by Straw- 
berry Studio — these have all the 
authentic film-starrisb insignia. 
Some have niching down the 
centre, most have cut-away 
thighs, some are strapless with 
bandeaus across the bust while 
others have just one shoulder 
strap. 

If you feel that's a bit theatri- 
cal for you, then racing swim- 
suits, in particular the very 
elegant ones made by Specdo, 
are equally popular at the 
moment. My feeling about them 
though is that you need a well- 
nigh perfect figure to wear them. 

There is also the perennial 
bikini. Tbese have become yet 
smaller, with the two main pieces 
often being connected by little 
pieces of string or beads. " 



This is one of the prettiest 
beachwear sets around. Made 
from pure cotton, there Is s 
bikini, £17.75, and a matching 
wrap-around dress (£43.50). 
Made by Laetttla of France, 
they are sold by Harrods and

colours.

beach wear labels to look out for. What I like 
about the company is that- It produces 
co-ordinated collections so that you can usually 
find a top that goes over a swimsuit, a sundress 
to slip on over a bikini. This year there is a 
particularly attractive collection of pale blue

WHEN I was very young, sun- 
glasses were strictly for filmsla rs 
or Mafia chieftains. Anybody else 
caught weanng them looked 
miscast- On the odd occasion 
when 1 had a stye or con- 
junctivitis and wore them as 
camouflage they always brought 
forth some flippant comment. 
Nowadays, of course, they're 
almost as common an accessory 
as shoes nr handbags. Almost 
everybody I know has at least 
one pair, most people have two 
or three. 

However, whereas once it was 
a simple matter to decide which 
pair you wanted— you either 
needed prescription sunglasses, 
in which case you went to your 
Optician, or you bought the shape 
you liked best — nowadays there 
are so many new developments 
that its difficult to weigh the 
advantages of one against 
another. 

To start at the beginning— do 
you need sunglasses at all? The 
answer is that strictly speaking 
you probahly dun’t. Most healthy 
eyes are able to make all the 
necessary adjustments to sun- 
light: hnweier. many people have 
discovered that they feel much 
more coin fort able wearing them, 
their eyes seem less tired, they 
don't have to strew them up and 
they are often useful camouflage 
if very tired. I like to wear them 
to keep the dust out of my eyes 
in very windy weather. 


Cool numbers 


Which ?. in its report on sun- 
glasses Iasi June, found that 
almost all sunglasses from the 
very cheap upwards were 
efficient at keeping out enouch 
glare lo stop you screwing up 
your eyes. Equally, all the 
lenses they tested (including the 
very cheapest plain plastic ones; 
were efficient at outline down 
ultra-violet rays whereas with 
infra-red ray* I which can harm 
the eyes, though there is seldom 
enough in Britain to create much 
of a problem) glass lenses were 
distinctly better than plastic, 
while mirror lenses were best of 
all. 

Everybody I spoke to wished 
to emphasise- that it Is vital that 
sunglasses should not be worn 
in certain conditions — chiefly 
when driving at night tthe new 
Highway Code. loo. stresses this) 
or in poor visibility. 

Of the main types of sun- 
glasses on sale, ordinary plastic 
ones are the cheapest. These 
can be an added strain on the 
eyes if there is any distortion 
and a good way to find out if 
they are any good is by holding 
the glasses out at arm's length. 


A charming new collect I on of plates has just 
been launched by Royal Doulton. There is 
one plate for each sign of the zodiac (the . 
quicker among you. will immediately realise, 
that that makes 12 in ait) and I think it would 
be rather fun .lo have one for each member 
of (he family. 

Each plate,- each, sign of the zodiac, has 
Its own coloured dedgu. featuring Kate 
.,GrOertawa5^ weU r ',known>r and. ./well loved 
smot^^Wtfi stm-IwnTOfeii cWiaren in. some 
- picturesque garden 'sfftjng br ^fher. Every 
• design incorporates some aspect- of Lhe sign 
'so - that, -for instance, 'on.- the Libra plate 
(photographed here) the two children are 


sitting on a sec-saw to symbolise the sign of 
the scales. The border of Hie plate not only 
has some charming and delicate sprigs or 
weld flower.v. It is also embossed with a 
chain of dancing children holding hands 
which completely encircles the plate. 

, On the reverse side of each plate Kale 
Greenaway'*, original calendar of events for 


the month Is reproduced. All. these are taken 
from..,Ka)e Greenaway's, original 1»84 
Almapack. The plates are attractively boxed 
and would mike a lovely present. They cost 


ONE OF the most attractive 
aspects of summer in my view 
is the clink of ice in glasses full 
uf . cooling • summer drinks. 
Because our hot weather is so 
I sporadic and so uncertain most 
j uf us don't have the truly 
formidable array uf equipment 
needed for cooling drinks that 
is to be found in hotter climates. 


It is. fi*r instance, almost 
impossible to track down a really 
attractive ice-bucket. Few 
people seem lo luxe fridges with 
a continuous ire-making facility 
— almost ;« standard feature on 
most Anu-rri iR fridges — and also 
the range of summer drinks we 
proffer- in mir friends, nr 
refresh ou f-.ei-.es with ai liie end 
of the day. is pitifully small. 


though admittedly in Pimm' we 
have one of the most refreshing 
of a li summer concoctions. I 
hope to track down more 
genuinely useful hoi weather 
survival equipment in the coin* 
in.? weeks but in the meantime 
here are three ideas, some 
inexpensive, one very expensive, 
to add a little lustre to the 
summer days.

Look through each lens in 
turn, aiming at a vertical object 
like a window or doorpost. 
Rotate the lens slightly and you 
will find that ir the lens is of 
acceptable quality, the vertical 
image von are looking at will 
remain still, ir it seems to move 
or alter shape, the quality is 
puor. 

Flawed lenses mean that the 
eyes have to work harder to 
compensate for the blurred 
image so that your eyes may end 
up feeling more tired than if 
you weren't wearing them. 

Both glass and plastic can prn- 
vide good lenses— on the whole 


plastic ones are light, but scratch 
more readily. They also lend 
themselves to more exciting 
shapes and are more impact- 
resistant than ordinary glass 
ones (though toughened glass, of 
course, is also impact-resistant). 

Polaroid lenses were first in- 
vented in America (where else?) 
in The 1930s and they offered a 
genuine innovation in that they 
contained a core which filtered 
the light so that glare was 
eliminated. Until the early 1970s 
the sunglass market was almost 
entirely dominated by polarised 
lenses. In the mid 1970s some 
very fashion-conscious firms with 

very aggressive marketing 
policies began to make a big 
impact on the sunglass market 
(anybody who ever watches tele- 
vision must have noticed some 
very stylish advertising t. 

Nonetheless. even though 
Polaroid's own patent on the 
polarising process has run out. 
polarised lenses still account for 
about 50 per cent of all sales. 

Polaroid themselves still sell 
more sunglasses than any other 
company in this country and are 
trying hard to combine the good- 
quality image they've developed 
over the years with a high- 
fashion approach. They havp just 
launched a series of very attrac- 
tive frames designed for them 
hy Mary Quant (one of them is 
photographed near left i . 

Phntochroinalic lenses have 
recently become ail the rage — 
those are lenses that darken and 
lighten automatically according 
to the amount oT sunlight. The 
early models used to darken rela- 
tively quickly when worn in the 
sunlight but took quite a long 
time to lighten again on going 
inside — this could occasionally be 
quite dangerous (for instance, 
when driving and suddenly enter- 
ing a dark tunnel). However, 
this year's latest development is 
the Reacioitle Rapide lenses and 
these react very much more 
quickly to changing light condi- 
tions. The lenses are made from 
a special aluminium orthophos- 
phate glass and one of the best 
brand-names to look out for is 
Pilking ton's Concorde glasses — 
these are priced between £12.50 
and £13.75 and conic in a good 
range of fashionable shapes and 
colours. 

Anybody needing to have pre- 
scription sunglasses made tip 
should choose pbotochromatic 
lenses because this means they 
can he worn all the time— they 
will be quite clear on winter days 
and obediently dark when the 
sun comes out. 

Many people like to have 
“ graduated '' glasses— that is. 
ones that arc clearer at the 
bottom so that beautiful eyes are 
not hidden ! 

Anybody wanting to buy sun- 
glasses this summer and wanting 
to know more about the do's and 
don'ts of the matter could send 
a self-addressed stamped 
envelope to the Optical Infor- 
mation Council. Walter House.

Of a few' days fine h35 the oppor-

by Racine. Marivaux. Cocteau 
and a bicentenary programme 
about Voltaire bur such recently 
has been my fortunate fate. This 
little festival of French drama

Britannicrus in an English trans- 
lation on Radio 4 (May 28) and 
Maurice Cranston's feature about 
Voltaire (Radio 4. Mat 31 ». 

Reactions tn these per 
romances have convinced me 
that if politically we are now 
Europeans, theatrically we re -

BY JANET MARSH. 

LAST WEEK -ix» this'- coluraiJ: 
June Field . mentioned ' the 
Robert Ton Hirscb collection - , 
which Is td 'be dispersed by 
Sotheby's fira series of sales be-' 
tween ■ the 25th And the 27th 
of June. This week-, until June . 
8, there in a ’chance to' see a 
selection of ran Hiisch’s choicest 
treasures in an exhibition at the 
Royal Academy. In some cases 
the works of art are: grouped 
exactly as they were in his home 
and treasure house in the Engel- 
gasse in Basel. '• 

Breathtaking 'as. are the in- 
dividual items,, what emerges 
most strikingly from the exhibi- 
tion and the four handsome 
volumes of the' - sale catalogue 
(selling at £50 the set) is the 
personality of the cblleetor.hira-- 
self. It is . impossible not to 
sense that von Hirscb was a 
man of enormous charm and 
humanity as well as of an 
exquisite and highly educated 
taste; and this is confirmed by 
everyone who knew him or 
visited his Collections. (Believ- 
ing that people should come to 
art, and not art to people, 
Hirsch always welcomed stu- 
dents in his home but was 
reluctant to send his treasures 
to exhibitions outside. Basel.) 

As a collector, von Hirsch 
enjoyed the two inestimable ad- 
vantages of- time and money. 
When he died last November 
he was 94; and had begun col- 
lecting 80 years: earlier when 
he and his brother together 
started the collection of French 
and German first editions which 
remained one of his great loves. 

His first art purchases were 
made in 1907; when he bought 
Toulouse Lautrec's La flousse au 
Caraco Blcmc and Picasso’s Sc£ne 
de flue— -b y any standards dis- 
cerning buys for a beginner. 
The Picasso - was bought in 
Hirsch’s native Frankfurt; and 
because.. it had left France so 
soon after' being painted, (about 
1901); this wonderful, sombre 
painting of shabby people in a 
dark Paris street has Remained 
for.- practical purposes, un- 
recorded until now. 

Even in 1907, of- course, fine 
first editions and Lautrec- oils 
were not exactly inexpensive. 
Von Hirsch had gone into his 
unde's leather house as a 
youngster, and proved himself 
so good a businessman that he 
built up international fame for 
the firm. He acquired his " von ” 
after the Grand Poke of Hesse

the Angel Representing Operatic (Charity) from the Spandrels of 
die 5taveIot Retable. Circa 1150. 


had visited the factory, with his 
sister the Tsarina, in 1913. 

Hirsch was thus already a 
distinctly rich young man when 
his interest was turned in the 
direction of art and collecting 
by friendship with the. newly 
appointed director of the Frank- 
furt Stadtliches Kunstinstitut. 
of which he eventually became 
an administrator. Von Hirsch 
remained in Frankfurt until 
1933 when .political events 
caused him to remove to 
Switzerland. The price of per- 
mission to emigrate with his 
entire collection was the dona- 
tion of Cranach's The Judge- 
ment oj Paris to the German 
nation. When the picture was 
restored to him in 1945, he 
bequeathed it to the . Kunst- 
museum in Basel. 

His friends say that his acute 
business. sense never influenced 
his collecting: he always bought 
for love, and not investment 
(though with ,a connoisseur's 
eye like his, it was impossible to 
buy badly). True, the impetus 
for the unrivalled collection of 
mediaeval and renaissance works 
of art may well have been the 
cnIlector*5 inability to let pass 
the opportunities of several 
exceptional sales .in the late 
twenties and' early thirties. In 
those years the Hohenzollern- 
Sigmar ingen collections, the 
Guelph Treasure (donated be- 
tween the llth -and 15th 
centuries to the Cathedral of St. 
Blaise by the. rulers of Bruns- 
wick) and several "other famous 
■collections came on . the market, 
while the Soviet government 
sold off a. group of treasures 
from the Hermitage. • 

One of the most celebrated 
pieces in the -collection, the 
armilla or bracelet .thought to be 
from the imperial regalia of 
Baybarossa, came T from the 


Hermitage. The pnamel medal 
lion form a reiable, illustrated 
here, is attributed ro the same 
supreme 13th century artists. 
Godefroid dc Claire, and came 
from the Signiaringen collet- 
lion. 

Whatever he bought, however 
— -mediaeval works of art. old 
master paintings and drawings 
impressionists or the 20th cen 
tury works acquired after his 
marriage to the sculptress 
Martha Dre>Tus-Kuoli — he still 
exercised the same rigorous and 
personal taste. 

Hirsch clearly admired in art 
— ancient or modern — the un 
mannered, the human, charm 
None of the works at the Aca 
demy is ever aggressive in sub 
ject or technique. Everything is 
superb of its kind, whether a 
Byzantine ivory or a Seurat 
sketch. 

You detect areas of special 
Interest. He clearly liked to find 
painters in uncharacteristic 
mood — Renoir painting snow 
C Les Patineurs a Longchamps") 
which he regarded as ‘cette 
lepre de la nature.’* Lautrec a 
romantic and quite untheatrical 
portrait <‘T,a Rousse") or a 
comical dachshund, Bonnard an 
irresistible sketch of three 
schoolgirls skipping on their 
way home. He also seems to 
have enjoyed seeing painters 
copying other roasters: Van 
Gogh interprets Millet's “La 
Grande Bergfere assise” and 
Cezanne a Rubens nude: Dela- 
croix. Ingres. Cezannes and 
Redon all make copies from Hol- 
bein; and the impact of Michel- 
angelo on Fuseli is revealed in 
his drawing of “Learning.” 


BY JOE RENNISON 

WITH MIDSUMMER coming up 
soon and rumnurs of unending 
boom finally scotched il hope) 
it is interesting to note what a 
couple of agents think abuut 
how the market has performed 
in the first half of ihe year. One 
is in a fairly restricted area on 
the south coast, the other has 
offices in many parts of the 
country — but the menace seems 
lo be the same. Fir<t ihe 
thoughts of Jackson and Jackson 
who operate out uf the New 
Forest area. 

Ninleen seven ty-eip hi began 
with bitter weather, a >h«»rtagc 
of houses, a surplus of buyers 
and ample mortgage funds. It 
was with this background that 
they witnessed a iransfnrma- 
lion from a buyers' to a .sellers' 
market, and with this an inevit- 
able increase in house prices. 

The values hate risen in the 
past five months by 311 average 
of 15 per cent and. whiM they 
cannot see this dramatic rise 
continuing, they still expect 
[hen? to be a further rise of at 
least 5 per cent over Ihe year 
as a whole. They are forecast- 
ing that over 1978 it is likely 
that there will be at least a 
20 per cent increase in values 
nf mo>t of the properties in 
the New Forest area. 

The Government having 
placed a restriction un lending 
hy htulding societies has 
caused an obvious slowing 
down in the time it takes for 
certain ?ales to proceed through 
to contract stage, and this has 
resulted in the building up of 
chain sales. 

The type nf property in 
demand at the moment includes 
4/5 bedruomed family houses 
anywhere in the New Forest 
between £50,000 and £75.000. 
Terraced houses and hunsalows 
are also popular close lo village 
and town centres. Properties 
overlooking the Lymington 
River or the Solent continue 
to be keenly in demand. 

Valuations have not bpen easy 
over the past five months, and 
it .is now more the rule than 
the exception that properties 
are selling for the prices being 
asked, except in the few cases 
where prices have been wildly 
out of line. There have in con- 
sequence been a number of 
auction sales so far this year, 
but the majority of property 
still seems to be sold in the New 
Forest by private treaty. The 


vendors are al?n beginning to 
realise the advantages of a sole 
agency, whereby they appoint 
one agent entirely responsible 
for the disposal, advertising, 
handling and negotiating fur 
their property. This can avoid 
confusion as between agents and 
clients and. in ihe long run, sole 
agencies du in their npinion 
benefit bnih the vendor and 
purchaser. 

Within ihe past month there 
has bwn a cun-iderabie increase 
in the number of properties 

coming unto ihe market in the 
New Fvresi Vendors perhaps 
feel that inter ihe long winter 
now is tin.* lime tu sell, and 
especially if house prices are 
not point; n> rise quite so drama- 
tically during ihe second half 
of the >car as they did in the 
first half. 

The possibility -if an autumn 
election still remains and. 
should wo he going in ilic polls 
in October, u in hound to have 
a temporary holding effect mi 
the market until ihe result is 
known. 

JackNon-Slop.* and Staff, who 
have many ofiice> around ihe 
country, lake a philosophical 
approach i«i ihe whole situation 
but ha>ic:illy remain well away 
from the huili-h stance taken hy 
some a item*. They say that 
it is imeru-iing i«» contract 
Ihe rea-nn* behind she recent 
upsurge in hoit.-e prices, as 
compared with ihe boom of the 
early 1970-. which came about 
almost entirely as a result of the 
steady increase over the pre- 
ceding four lo five years uf 
people'* purchasing power, in 
an almost static house market. 

Since the rapid decline in 
values of late 1973 and 1974. 
which brought grey hairs In 
many a crown, at the frightening 
escalation of interest charges, 
where two properties were 
owned, often for -lengthy 
periods, vendors have been 
extremely wary of purchasing 
an alternative property, until 
the sale of their present house 
was well under way. This trend 
was, however, completely re- 
versed in late autumn of 1977 
and ha-> accelerated so much in 
recent months, to rhe extent that 
hardly anyone has been pre- 
pared lo seriously offer their 
own property until an alterna- 
tive had been secured. They 
consider that this unwelcome, 
though understandable trend. 


".Hi N" ^ , 


Strutt and Parker, acting on 
behalf of trustees, have been 
Instructed to sell this very 
fine Georgian former rectory 
near Woodbridge in Suffolk. 
It comprises ball. 4 reception 
rooms, kitehen, utility room, 
5 principal bedrooms and 2 
bathrooms with 4 further bed- 
rooms and bathroom and oik 
fired central heating. Further 
land and also a modernised 
3-bed roomed cottage might be 
available if required. Offers 
around £75,000 are being 
Invited for the freehold. 
Strntt and Parker. 11. Museum 
Street, Ipswich, Suffolk. 


has had a major effect in the 
upsurge of properly values, by 
creating a totally artificial 

shortage. 

Without exception, their 
uftices throughout the regions, 
while extremely active, report 
a picture of depressingly little 
choice of property on the mar- 
ket for the time uf year, which 
has naturally led to an un- 
healthy and over exuberant 
lush after anything at all 
attractive that comes on to the 
marker. 

A marked upsurge in the 
number of auctions is evident 
and. indeed, it is a bold' agent 
that wells a property in advance 
of an advertised auction, when 
results are achieved like that 
or their London office, when a 
properly known as Avon Cot- 
tage. near Salisbury. Wiltshire, 
a 16th century house wilh 
frontage l» a river, with six 
bedrooms and three bathrooms, 
which was expected to realise 
£7lMi00 and fur which a figure 
nf £95.000 was paid. In Cumbria, 
ihe Lortun Park Estate, 
L'umpriMng a Georgian style 
country hmi.se. in need of 
extensive repair and having a 
tenanted cottage attached wtd 
some 27 acres of parkland, 
realised £117.000: a figure 
nearly double the anticipated 
reserve price. A more modest 
property in Cheshire, compris- 
ing an attractive period farm- 
house in three-quarters of an 
acre, but requiring complete 
renovation, which had failed to 
sell at auction last summer, was 
re-offered this spring, having 
suffered a severe bartering from 
the elements and vandals this 
winter, at offers in excess of 
£15.000. Such was the. demand 
that over 12 offers were 
received the first week and it 
was sold for around £25.000: 
emphasising the irend towards 
modernising and ' restoring 
older houses. 

Reports from their West 
country. East Anglia n and 
Cols wold offices underline the 
ever buoyant market for coun- 
try houses with land, but there 


are a few signs that as more i 
properties have come on to the i 
market since Easter, the price i 
increases have steadied and ■ 
over-priced second rale houses i 
are finding a slower market very i 
different from the 1970s boom, 
where literally anything sold, i 
In the I30.00U to £35.000 range ' 
the Government instigated ; 
mortgage famine has had a 
marked effect: more especially 
in their northern offices, where 
a recently renovated four- 
hedroomed farmhouse with two 
and a-half acres failed to 
achieve a single bid at a recent 
auction, although three buyers 
in the room expressed keen 
interest afterwards at a figure 
in excess of the reserve, pro- 
vided a delayed completion date 
could be accommodated. 

The market in properties in 
the coastal regions of the coun- 
try seems unabated. The house 
with a boathouse in South 
Devon achieved towards £60.0OU. 
while a bid in excess of that 
figure was paid for a 17th cen- 
tury house in eight acres, near 
Cunway. North Wales, and on 
the south-west coast of Scotland, 
near Kireudbrightshire, a 
development of high quality 
luxury, Norwegian style log 
houses, which were originally 
on offer at f UMNO are now sell- 
ing for £17.5U0: a particularly 
good investment in a little over 
three years. 

The buoyant market is not 
confined only to older country 
houses and, despite the high 
cost of new building, both our 
Midlands and North-West offices 
report unprecedented demand 
for one off individual four bed- 
roomed houses on quarter tfo 
half acre plots, at prices up to 
£45.000 and at a recent auction 
in the Wirral Peninsula, twelve 
miles front Liverpool, a quarter 
acre single building plot 
realised the staggering figure of 
£19.500. 

There are. they feel, darker 
clouds on the horizon, in the 
form of rising interest rates and 
increasing speculation of a 
General Election, a certain 
darapner on any property 


market, which reluctant vendors 
would do well to heed. We have 
no doubt that a lot of the 

apparent hysteria experienced 
in recent weeks would disappear 
if more vendors were prepared 
to put their properties on to the 
market before they had pur- 
chased an alternative, this in- 
creasing the pool of available 
houses and helping to stabilize 
prices in their own interests. 

Turning to the agricultural 
market, the steady increase in 
prices of top class farms con- 
tinues unabated, with many 
European buyers coming into 
the market, reflecting that, 
even at £2,000 per acre, British 
land is cheap, in comparison to 
most other EEC countries, but 
expensive as it may appear 
when contemplating the pur- 
chase of a farm, it must not be 
overlooked chat the price per 
acre indicated, often includes 
substantial capitalisation by 
way nf farm buildings and in- 
variably. a sizeable house, 
representing many hundreds «*f 
pounds per acre of the sale 
price. 

In conclusion, they refer to 
their end of year report for 
1977. when they predicted an 
; uncertain market in the spring 
of 1978. hut felt that prices 
should hold up and continue to 
rise Steadily. If the usual spring 
influx of properties on to fhe 
market had taken place, these 
: predictions might well have 
proved more accurate than what 
i has in fact taken place. 

Rapidly escalating property 
: prices help no-one for, in the 
1 end, it is all relative and what 

• really counts is the ability to

market, prices will tend lo

T HE swift and dramatic 
intervention of French 
paratroops in Zaire's 
Shaba province iwo weeks ago 
did more than just protect 
European civilians and invest- 
ment: it served yet again to save 
ihe political neck of one of 
Africa's greatest survivors, the 
country's President for the past 
13 years. Mobutu Sese Seko. 

For ihe second time in just 
over a year it required a foreign 
power to defend the territorial 
integrity of the second biggest 
country on the continent with 
its 25m people. That Zaire was 
unable to defend itself against 
a rebel force of about 2.000 says 
something about the ungovern- 
ability of the vast country and 
a lot about the state of its 
Government 

There is no doubt that the 
war in Shaba further weakened 
the position of President 
Mobutu both politically and 
economically. But as the meet- 
ing of Western powers in Paris 
on Monday will show, he is not 
without powerful friends 
abroad. 

The Paris meeting will 
examine fresh ways of propping 
up the crippled Zaire economy 
and will also look at the 
country's security problems. 
But some countries, notably 
Britain, are known to have 
strong reservations about one 
idea currently being floated — 
that of Western support for the 
stationing in Shaba of a 
permanent foreign force drawn 
from African countries (such as 
Senegal and the Ivory Coast) 
which take a staunchly anti- 
communist line. 

The West has already made it 
clear that it is not prepared to 
provide permanent combat 
troops itself for Zaire and it is 
only a matter of time, probably 
one to three months, before the 
French and Belgians pull out. 

But President Carter, speak- 
ing at the Nato Summit 
in Washington, underlined 
Western determination to stop 
the spread of Communist 
influence in Africa, and given 
Western aid, President Mobutu 
promises to remain a bulwark 
against Soviet and Cuban expan- 
sion in the continent. 

It was this consideration, as 
well as humanitarian ones, 
which prompted the French and 
Belgians to drive the ra;-tag 
rebel army out of the mining 
town of Kalwezi. But not before 
the rebels had delivered a 
deadening blow* lo Zaire’s 
economic solar plexus. At first 
it seems surprising that the 
rebels could have done so much 
damage so easily, but a number 
of factors were working in their 
favour. 

First of all they were among 
friends. The force which 
crossed into Zaire had its roots 
in the misleadingly named 
Gendarmerie, a paramilitary 
force formed by Mnise Tshombe 
when he declared the then 
province of Katanga (now 


Shaba) independent in I960. 
Some 6-S.Ouu of them UL-re 
driven out of the country into 
neighbouring Angola when the 
secession was crushed and ihoy 
have remained a rhorn in 
Mobutu's side ever since he 
came lo power In a bloodies* 
coup in 1965. 

Psychological 

victory 

The rebels were therefore of 
the same Lund a and B.iluba 
tribes which inhabit Shaba. In 
many places they were wel- 
comed by the population as 
conquering heroes and even 
some of the Zairean army 
threw in its lot with them. 
Without foreign intervention, 
there is no doubt they could 
have stayed as lung as they 
liked. But there was no need 
for them to stay any longer— 
they had already achieved a 


In the face of a well-armed 
and. to begin with, well dis- 
ciplined force, the Zairean 
army melted into the bush. De- 
moralised by irregular pay. 
poor framing and successive 
purges to stamp out opposition 
to the Government, it had no 
heart for a fight and left the 
European population as well as 
the Zaireans to the mercy of 
the rebels. 

And the rebels will be back. 
Intelligence reports and satel- 
lite pictures suggest a fairly 
sizeable force may slill be in 
Shaba preparing for another 
.strike. 

There is a very' real panic 
ammsphere in the regional 
capital of Lubumbashi. It would 
not tyke much to put the entire 
white population of the town 
to flight and many are already 
leaving. H the whites went, 
the economy would break 
down. 

The West obviously does not 


resist interference in the murky 
world of Zaire's , finance.' How- 
ever, the West is not only trying 
to prop up President Mobntu. it 
is also anxious to get Zaire 
back onto a sound economic 
footing to recoup some 'of the 
$2bn to 53bn the country owes 
in both official' and commercial 
loans. 

One question Western nations 
must be asking themselves is 
whether, after the Shaba 
debacle, Mobutu is really still 
in control: He certainly thinks 
so. or he wouldn't feel comfort- 
able leaving the country for a 
long trip around Europe - and 
Africa now, while the country 
is in such a mess. And on his 
tour he wifi not have failed to 
point out to fellow heads of 
state that throughout the week- 
long Shaba fighting there was 
not a hint of a sympathetic 
uprising elsewhere in Zaire. 

The lack of sympathetic un- 
rest is not just the ’result of. 




President Mobutu at the Elysce Palace earlier this year with President Giscard d’Estaing: 
Monday's meeting of the Western powers in Paris will look at new ways of propping np 

Zaire's economy. 


major psychological victory by 
driving the white population 
from Kolwezi. White technical 
expertise puts the iron in the 
country's otherwise anaemic 
economic bloodstream. 

Western strategists believe 
the rebels intended to mount 
a hit-and-run raid. They were 
not simply ageing exiles hun- 
gering for their homeland, most 
of them were young men well 
steeped in the ideology of their 
adapted country. Though there 
is no conclusive evidence nf 
Cuban participation in the in- 
cursion. there is little doubt the 
rebels were Cuban trained and 
their aim was not simply the in- 
dependence of Shaba, but the 
overthrow of Mobutu and the 
end of the Congo’s pro-Western 
stance. 


want that to happen and the 
U.S., Belgium and France, in 
particular, will be looking at 
ways of reassuring the whites 
and containing, if not defeating, 
the rebels. 

However, the idea of a 
Western-supported pan-African 
force presents immense pro- 
blems. To whom would it be 
responsible/ What would be 
the definition of its task? 

Whatever the West decides, 
either as regards the economy 
or Zaire’s security, it will lay 
down tough conditions to Presi- 
dent Mobutu over Ihe running 
of his country. 

President Mobutu has shown 
a public willingness to put his 
country under the tutelage of 
the International Monetary 
Fund but is said in private to 


Mobuto’s brutal repressing at 
dissent but also of the purely 
physical communications prob- 
lem in Zaire. One thousand 
miles from Kolwezi, the people 
of Kinshasa had to depend for 
their news on the Government- 
controlled media. Foreign 
papers and news magazines 
were carefully vetted before 
going on sale. 

There is no doubt that 
Mobutu is intensely unpopular 
in many parts of the country- 
But he can count on the frag- 
mented nature of his opposition, 
divided as it always is along 
tribal and ideological lines. 
Among the 250 tribes of Zaire 
with their many languages and 
different cultures there is no 
common cause stronger than 
their mutual antagonism. The 


. mere fact that Zaire is drawn 
on a map gives an artificial im- 
pression of nationhood which is 
-still -not widely felt on the 
ground. 

Not that the Pres id erst takes 
any chances. Since- - he came to 
power he has pursued an active 
policy of suppression of ' opposi- 
tion, both real or imagined. The 
civilian population is watched 
by the secret police of the 
National Documentation Centre 
(-GND) and on the army there 
is a parallel hierarchy to' the 
military command which owes 
its allegiance directly to 
Mobutu. 

-There have bean numerous 
purges In the array, especially 
after last year’s fighting in 
Shaba. In March this year the 
President ignored international 
appeals .for clemency and 
executed 13 people, including 
nine array officers, for allegedly 
plotting a coup. 

Observers say Mobutu holds 
the country together with “ 'mir- 
rors, string and bits of chewing 
gum.” But whatever Western 
reservations about the man and 
bis policies, there is no one 
obvious alternative to him be- 
cause he has taken pains to 
make sure there is none. Pro- 
mising newcomers to the politi- 
cal scene are eased out before 
they can form a power base of 
their own. 

The President continues to 
hold the reins, though the horse 
keeps bucking. His special plea 
to the West will be to bail him 
out economically, for the one 
thing which couid finally over- 
throw him is the economy. 

“Most of the people are not 
against the President But there 
has to be a change. When the 
people haven't got enough to 
eat they are going to go mad,” 
said an unusually outspoken 
taxi driver. And there are per- 
sistent food shortages. 

In March, flour was in short 
supply in Kinshasa and bread 
shops in the city were empty. 
In country areas, flour has been 
unobtainable for up to six 
months at a time. The price of 
a sack of manioc, one staple 
food, is now the equivalent of 
a rural worker's monthly wage 
and the sacks, just enough to 
feed a family for a month, are 
getting smaller. In the country 
a jar of caterpillars finds a 
ready buyer. 

The rumblings at the moment 
come mostly from people's 
stomachs. “It* incredible what 
they have been putting up with,”

fighting broke out Foreign . 
exchange is desperately short 
and will get even more scarce 
now that the mines, which pro-

foreign exchange earnings, are

If the West were to provide 
both military and economic aid 
and lay down strict guidelines 
on how to run the economy. 
President Mobutu would be able 
to count himself secure for as •

said: “ When I count my bless-

was not born to rule Zaire." 





Letters to the Editor 


Good life 


From Mr. H M. F Mallett. 

Sir. — I read with interest Mr. 
,1. Smiths letter iMay 31 1 . his 
second on the financial advan- 
tages nf upimg out and taking 
up wbat he describes as the 
"guod life.” 

it seems that this has so far 
involved collecting unemploy- 
ment benefit, lax and pension 
rebates. and a profit on amnieur 
l private) improvement of a Vic- 
torian properly. .Ahead for Mr. 
Smith and his cnumum law wife 
lie larger, hut as yet unrealised, 
profits from further development 
in much more expensive property 
fields: and even further on the 
horizon, dealing in the export nf 
antiques, and writing books 
about them, mainly in order to 
be able to set off huge expenses 
against nebtiJmis future earnings. 

It may be too late for Mr. 
Smith, if he really exists, which 
docs nor worry me much, hut in 
case your readers should be 
tempted to adopt a similar 
course j little aniaieur advice : n 
the opposite direction seems 
timely. 

Starting hackwards, it is very 
difficult to make a living out of 
writing, even about antiques. 
You haven't only to write, you 
have lo find a publisher. Tax 
men. as writers and publishers 
are aware tand as a bit of each, 
in a small hut at least regularly 
profitable way, 1 should know) are 
resistant even in justified ex- 
penses against earnings. Over- 
seas holidays spent on sunny 
beaches, allegedly researching, 
arc just not on. 

1 am also reasonably convinced 
that trading in antiques is very 
risky and needs a fair amount of 
capital, not lo say expertise. 
Developing properties privately 
owned on the assumption that 
prices always go up and that 
buyers and sellers are always 
around to suit your plans is one 
of the quickest ways to bank- 
ruptcy the statisticians know. If 
ever I read a phrase portending 
doom it was Mr. Smith’s analysis 
to the effect that " at an annual 
compound interest rate of 10 
per cent the house could be sold 
for £100.000 in five years' lime. 
The return is thus £10.000 a year 
tax free . . - and the investment 
is safe.” My father bought a 
house after the First World War 
and it didn't roach the purchase 
price again until the mid-fifties. 
Mr. Smith would do a lot better 


to try to get bis old job back, 
even to marry his common law 
wife in case the tax situation 
ever makes it worih her while to 
leave him and shack up with 
some more export property 
developer (and there aren’t 
many of those, either, as the last 
slump showed). He could even 
develop, in due course, a sensa- 
tion of leading the “ good life " 
by making a coni ribu linn, 
through work and lax. to a 
society with many faults iwho 
more aware of it than one nf 
ihe self-employed? j blit also 
many advantages. It can be 
great simply to feel that you 
aren't a parasite.

Values 

From Mr. D. 31. Toff 

Sir. — We are told that money 
is not wealth hut a claim on 
wealth. Quite su. hut the whole 
problem of money is that the 
Slate has appropriated to itself 
the monopoly right* of produc- 
ing what its subjects are obliged 
to accept as legal tender. This 
might work if governments could 
he trusted not to tamper with the 
purchasing power of these 
claims by recklessly increasing 
the supply of “ claim units " thus 
defrauding their creditors and 
lowering the value of the means 
of exchange. The virtue of gold 
is ihat if acts as an automatic 
and universal regulator of the 
value of “claim units" and 
therefore acts a constraint on 
governments and h ahhorred hv 
them for this reason. Because an 
increasinc number of people nn 
longer have any confidence in 
the ultimate managers nf their 
wealth they are lurninc to gold 
which will cslabli-h itself as an 
authentic parallel • system of 
exchange.

Gold hoard 

From Dr. Geoffrey Middleton. 

Sir,—- Mr. C. E. Lee (May 25) 
calls distrust of the present 
international monetary system an 
“ obsession " and suggests that 
permission to buy gold “ as a 
commodity" would satisfy those 
who are alarmed at having to 
hold paper money, u j s no t j us t 


a question of what people hoard 
— that can be done in gold aow 
in most of western Europe — but 
of how to make investment in 
industry a safe monetary proposi- 
tion. At the moment the lender 
of paper money, be it dollars, 
pounds or anything else, is invit- 
ing a certain long-term loss, 
the “financially incompetent" 
governments of the world, who 
both manage the currencies and 
do most of the borrowing, are 
really pursuing a policy nf 
clandestine confiscation. It is the 
steadily growing realisation of 
this that is now producing the 
greatest slump the world has ever 
known. 

The only two remedies for this, 
as the late Jacques Rueff pointed 
out back in 1972. are the re- 
establishment of a gold standard 
or succumbing to totalitarianism. 
The attitude of the United Stales 
monetary authorities has always 
been " I'm alright. Jacques ! " 
and to let the world's currencies 
go hang. Merely sneering at sold 
is not going to sare the dollar, 
and France's greatest economist 
happened to be right. When the 
day of reckoning arrives there 
will be an avalanche of panic 
liquidation of credit and every- 
one will find, to their horror, 
that paper money, has become of 
very little value. Then, in 
desperation, dictatorship may 
well prevail, and Lcnm (and 
Keynes) will have won the day.

Money control 

F rom Mr. Malcolm Roberts 

Sir. — The current impasse 
between the financial institutions 
nnd the government rests on 
the government's Canute- like 
posture over monetary control. 
Bank lending to the private 
sector and overseas has grown by 
£I.7bn during the last three 
months, in sharp contrast with 
the fall of £0.2bn during the 
same period last year. On 
present policies it is highly un- 
likely that the £6bn DCE limit 
can be met: indeed it would 
require the entire increase in 
institutional cash flow to be 
devoted to new gilt issues. 

In order to break tbe deadlock 
a much firmer commitment to 
monetary control is required.

performance^ it : wifi cost me

To most people that will 
Seen) a fearful waste of a very 
large sum of money; though in 
comparative terms it is a pretty 
minimal budget. *. 

So the announcement this 
week that British industry, and 
the general- public, ’■ is being 
asked to sponsor the purchase 
and racing of a couple of boats 
to take part in -the l&SO 
America's Cup series -to -the 
tune of neatly £2m will no doubt 
have caused raised eyebrows 
everywhere particularly those 
of a few committee members 
on leading charities.- 

NOr is there any guarantee 
that, after *11 this expense, the 
British challenge Will reach the 
start line off Newport, Rhode 
Island, against the .American 
holders. There are five other 
challengers who must- be beaten 
in a series, of eliminators be- 
fore the: big battle begins. 

Even- the brochure inviting 
membership of a British Indus- 
try 1500 Club — minimum sub- 
scription £1,050, tax deductible, 
open to rire first 1,500 appli- 
cants—^ drafts that the chal- 
lenge is . the pursuit of an 
“ impossible dream ” though 
surprisingly it adds that it also 
feels the challenge is “ almost 
exotic.” - 

There will be no doubt in 
most people's minds, both in 
mid out of yacht racing, that 
the project truly qualifies for 
the adjective exotic, and has 
about: as . much relevance to 
everyday sailing as a rocket 


car across Pendipe ' Sands has 
to ferrying auntie to the Cots- 
Wolds.on a Sunday afternoon. 

While Britain has an enviable 
irecord of ~ success in the 
A dmir al's .Cup— always sailed 
in home waters — and in various 
level-rated events and dinghies, 
there are few Britons who 
could claim -to know the hows, 
why s ' and. wherefores of 12- 
metre racing in American 
waters. (A 22-metre boat is 
standard for the America’s 
Cup. It is about 65 feet long 
. and 12 metres' on the water- 
line.) 

“Dirty tricks” 

Many of the other five chal- 
lengers have been io Newport 
before only to be beaten by 
the expert crewing and seasoned 
tactics of the locals. They have 
also been subjected ta severe 
psychological pressures both on 
snore and on the water and the 
‘British contingent has already 
budgeted both for a travelling 
■war games expert . and a 
“department of dirty tricks" 
to take the battle of Che minds 
onto the American camp. 

This seems to be more a case 
of silk-lined cloak and jewel- 
encrusted dagger than sailing 
and it probably is. But the one 
thing in the brochure inviting 
membership of. the; 1500 Club 
which is beyond dispute is that 
this latest challenge wall be the 
most professional ever put 
together. 

The cup,- formerly . the 
Hundred Guinea Cup, has never 
been won by anyone but the 
Americans. The name of the 
trophy was changed because it 
was first won by a yacht named 
America in a race round the 
Isle of Wight in 1851. The 129 
years to 1980 will have seen 23 
challenges some of the most 
famous from the British Isles. 


and yet no British boat has ever 
wan more than two of the best* 
of-seven series. And on an 
embarrassingly Targe number of 
occasiuns the Americans have 
won by a straight four-lo-nil 
margin. 

This time, however, there 
should be enough careful crew 
selection and enough oppor- 
tunity for them in practise 
against other •■twelves" to 
ensure they are raced- tuned 
and fit 

While the Americans have 
for some time been able to use 
a more accommodating tax sys- 
tem to encourage sponsorship, 
and the Swedes relied heavily 
on Volvo for their 1977 chal- 
lenge. Britain has hitherto 
always depended on rich indi- 
viduals to dig deeply into their 
own pockets. 

Our last challenge in 1964 was 
financed by Mr. Tony Boyden. 
wbo is now chairman of the 
British Industry 1500 Club. 
Although he has underwritten 
the purchase of the first boat 
from Joyce Marine at Gosport, 
he obviously hopes (hat this 
time enough money will be put 
up by industry to keep his per- 
sonal contribution within 
reasonable bounds. 

The recruitment of .Sir John 
Methvcn. director general of 
the CB1. as the club's president 
is a valuable coup. Apart from 
Sir John being an enthusiastic 
yachtsman and former RNVR 
officer, his ability 1o spread the 
gospel to all the most influen- 
tial men in British industry is 
almost unrivalled. 

On Mr. Boyden’s other flank 
is Sir Peter Vanneck. Lord 
Mayor of London, a 1500 Club 
vice-president and, of course, 
another yachtsman. That takes 
care of both industry and the 
City and involves the support 
of the two men who, between 
them, probably make more 
speeches to more men control- 


ling company funds than any 
other pair in Britain. A dynamic 
duo indeed. 

So the financial side is being 
handled professionally and an 
international public relations 
firm is there to back if up. The 
one-man crusade has given way 
to the business-like approach. 
Ir is now a commercial as well 
as a sporting enterprise. In 
the outline of the scheme it is 
emphasised that yachting is an 
amateur sport and that the crew 
will be amateur. However, 
when the challenge was first 
explained to the British public 
Mr. Boyden said that he ex- 
pected employers to cast a 
benevolent eye on the time 
demands made on crew-men 
whom they employ. If not. he 
said, he thought that there 
would be companies who would 
be able to make arrangements 
to ensure that crew would have 
good jobs on their return. 

Thar seems to be as delirate 
a dividing line as possible 
between professional and 
amateur status. However every- 
one is aware that there axe 
professionals in yacht racing — 
staff of sailniakers and boat 
builders are most prominent— 
and before the war. when most 
yacht racing was truly a rich 
gentleman's sport, professional 
crews were the order of the 
day. and the order of thp day 
was tn work damned hard for 
your shilling. 


Fit men 


With the most experienced 
men from the British Olympic 
yachtin'; scene involved, the 
fitness and competence of the 
crew should not be a problem 
and the promised 100-day work- 
up in Newport ahead of the 
elimination series should mean 
that tile best approach pro- 
gramme will be followed. . 

As for the design of the bnat, 
or boats, some doubts have been 


expressed about the man chosen. 
Ian Hewlett, on the grounds 
that he has not been in the 
mainstream of designing large 
winning yachts. 

However. Mr. Boyden pointed 
out that 12-metre design has 
reached its optimum point, and 
in Ian Howlett's favour are seven 
years of playing around with 
12-metre design in the water 
tanks and wind tunnels of 
Southampton University. 

Much more important will 
probably bo the problem of 
producing a perfect suit of sails, 
and undoubtedly this is some- 
thing that will exercise the 
minds of the committee con- 
siderably. Other equipment such 
as mast, spars and rigging, deck 
gear and electronics are well 

within the capability of a British 
yacht equipment industry as 
highly tuned as any of its world 
competitors. 

To add a little gilt to the 
gingerbread. Southern Tele- 
vision proposes to sponsor a 
series of 12-metre yacht races 
in the summer of 1979 to which 
the French. Swedes and even 
Australians ha\e been invited. 
It is not clear bou successful 
the idea will he. but the pro- 
spect of 12-metre racing in 
British waters again is a stirring 
one. 

Even taking into account all 
the improved organisation, the 
hopes of a Substantia! budget, 
and the wealth of good crew 
men to choose from, the rail- 
}j on-doll a r question is still: what 
is the chance of a British win? 

Ladbrokes, who will take a 
bet on most things, is reluctant 
to quote any odds at such long 
range, but privately the Ameri- 
cans would probably enter the 
frame at rive-to-one on at this 
stage. And the best odds given 
by one knowledgeable yachting 
man after Die announcement 
was two-to-one against the Bri- 
tish boat ever making the final 
series.

SAILED OVER 24-3 MILES OLYMPIC COURSE 


(WIND 


anck^fxh vw-«sl 





Although two years may seem 
a long time, the first boat will 
not be in the water until next 
January or February. That 
leaves only 15 months at best 
before shipping out to Newport 
having first caught up on an 
area of sailing in which we 
have little experience and which 
is an art of its own. 

Just to complicate matters, if 
the full amount the committee 
wants is donated a second boat 
will be built for launching in 
the year of the series. 

To put that into full racing 
order and run trial races against 
the first boar would leave the 
schedule very pressed, and 
•• twelves " being delicate crea- 
tures they cannot be sailed in 
all weathers. 

In contrast the Swedes will 
be going back to Newport only 


three years after .their last 
attempt and able to benefit from 
the experience they have so ex- 
pensively acquired. The same is 
true of the French and the 
Australians — and all the other 
challengers already have a 
selection of boats to use as trial 
horses. 

In the short time remaining 
to Britain the most important 
asset would be a smooth 
approach run: early and sub- 
stantial cash flow, unhindered 
building of the first boat, good 
weather when it is launched to 
allow the maximum number of 
days on the water, and freedom 
from major gear failures. Any- 
thing like a large hiccough 
would reduce significantly the 
prospect of success, for there 
will be little spare time in 
which to catch up.

' TWa YEARS' ago almost exactly 
•world environmentalists held a 
; huge warmhearted conference in 
Vancouver called Habitat and 
Human settlements. Almost all 
the nations attended. The 
. Canadians, proud that Habitat 
should be held In Vancouver, 
spent miUions on it

the 

year.’ 


, to press 

ahead with a" Habitat and Human 


Settlements Foundation to get 
the whole thing off the ground. 
But what happened to Habitat? 

Two years, and millions of 
words, later the foundation has 
not yet got a home, altough one 
U promised in Nairobi. 

Habitat has no executive 
director. The Secretary General 
of the UN has still to appoint 
one, and it has no money for 
its task of improving the world’s 
life-style- World governments 
are supposed to pledge money 
to the foundation, but up to 
end January this year there was 
only 51.56zn pledged for the 
kitty, of which only $360,000 
had been paid up. 

Dr. Mostafa Tolba. head of 
UNEP (the U.N. Environment 
Programme) who is caretaking 
the Habitat Foundation in 
Nairobi pending the appoint- 
ment of an executive director 
and an admistration, said a 
target of $50m was a minimum 
for government's voluntary con- 
tributions for 1078-1981. 

The permanent home Is hav- 
ing to wait till a huge combined 
building for UNEP and Habitat 
is built in Nairobi. A temporary 
home has been provided in 
Nairobi, but nobody has moved 
in yet. 

What environmentalists are 
wondering is why spend mil- 
lions creating a new UN 
environment agency when a 
huge working environment 
agency, UNEP, is already in 
existence with a top manager 
and a specialist staff. 

Could not the money be 
better spent they say. advising 
and helping poor nations how 
to dear their slums and improve 
rural life styles? 

But the UN machinery is 
grinding slowly on. An executive 
director of Habitat will be 
appointed, and he will occupy 
an office with an expensive staff 
almost next door to another 
environmental manager with 
another expensive staff, two 
years alter Vancouver. 

Swell 

affair 

This week should have seen the 
Start of cross-Channel services 


with British Rail Seaspeed's 
new Super 4 hovercraft, the 
largest in the world. Technically 
the 300-ton craft has performed 
well, reaching over 70 miles an 
hour in tests, but a dispute, in- 
volving 18 pilots over a pay- 
claim for parity with BR Sealink 
ferry captains, moans the craft 
will not carry paying passengers 
until July. 

In spile of this hitch some 
days ago a group uf journalists 
and, significantly, engineers 
from the Belgium Marine Trans- 
port Authority, slid across the 
Channel from Dover to Oslend. 
ostensibly on a joy ride. For 
BR and the British Hovercraft 
Corporation, the ride had a vital 
commercial aspect The real 
purpose was to carry-out test 
moorings in the heart of Ostend 
harbour. The data from the 
tests will aid a Belgian evalua- 
tion of the craft. Success could 
lead to orders for two £l5in 
craft. 

Would-be passengers, whose 
own rides have been hit by the 
pilots strike, are likely to be 
more interested in what hap- 
pened to the landlubbers when 
they set off on a cushion of air 
bouncing through eight feet 
waves at 65 miles per hour. 

Our pilot for the day was Mr. 
Bob Strath, operations manager 
of the British Hovercraft Cor- 
poration and not involved in the 
dispute. 

We were promised “ fresh 
eondiiiuns, a northerly breeze 
and a 1 to 11 metre swell in 
mid-Channel." A> the era Ft slid 
backwards off the ramp at 
Dover, the first sensation was of 
a drart »[ air up one’s trouser 
legs. Tins later paled into insig- 
nificance as staunch British and 
Belgian stomachs coped with 
waves i wice the size uf those 
predicted- 

Those promises about mid 
Channel conditions were 
remembered with some dismay 
when the wind picked-up to 
Force 7. the craft ** slowed ’’ to 
50 niiJcs per hour, and waves 
became grey concrete walls 
over 8 ft high. 

Stewardesses, some who had 
been with Soaspeed since its 
inception in 1968. served drinks 
and proudly proclaimed that on 
the older, unstretched SRN4 
craft, i he bar vouid have dosed 
long ago. conditions were so 
rough. But few drinks, even 
on the monster Super 4 survived 
the swell- Stomachs and drinks 
rose and sank as in the fastest 
hotel lifts- 

Sitting at the bulbous nose of 
the craft as it passed Calais 25 
minutes from Dover, the *' joy 
ride” passengers were notice- 
ably relieved when Bob Strath 
said we would then follow the 
coast over sandbanks and 
shallow’ water. White-water 
racing followed, with the entire 
horizon seething with loam, as 
the craft accelerated For Osiend 
to be greeted on the local beach 
by awestruck locals. 

To he fair to BR and the 
hovercraft company, it was an 
unusually rough day. But when 
sales of £30m and a potential 
rise iu the use by Belgium of 
the new BR boverport at Dover 
West are at stake, the show 
simply had to go on.

That was the riposte Frank Abramson gave us when we recently pepped the 
question: 

Why do W. H. Smith advertise in Radio Times? 

However he went on in a more encouraging vein: 

“Obviously, to any retailer, the sheer numbers of people his advertising reaches 
is important.' When you've over 350 outlets it's vital. 

“So we're influenced, of course, hyyourIO.7 million 
audience. 

“We’re after, to use the jargon, your C2DE readers as well 
asyourABCTs. 

“After all, everyone’s a potential customer to us. 

“That’s why we go out of our way to carpet our shops, 
light them attractively, make them a browser’s home from 
home. 

“And hopefully you’ve noticed how our staff are friendly 
but professional. They know their products. And they also 
know when to help you and when to leave you alone. 
“Also” he added, having a dig, “as you never tire of telling 
us.you’ve more ABC1 readers than any other magazine or newspaper. 

“What’s more,” he went on, ticking ofifhis fingers, “the highest proportions 0 ^ 

I think) of your readers is in the 15-24 age group, which is an important part of our 
target group. 

“Do you want me to go on?” he said, looking at hi s watch. 

Please, we replied. 

“Okayfhe muttered “Most of ourcustomers are women. But men are, naturally 
also importan t. So, indeed, are children, 

“We’re nothing if not a family shop. And you’re nothing if not a family magazine. 

“Also you give people plenty of time to see and consider our ads (what's your 
phrase;you stay in the home nine days including two shopping weekends?). 

“Furthermore, the fact you publish thirteen regional editions gives us flexibility. 

“Finallyrhe said (stressing the word) as well as newspapers and magazines, 
we're largely in books and records, the reading and listening market, if you like. 

“And',' he added, standing up “so are you. Which means your editorial is in 
sympathy with our ads. 

Door knob in hand, he summed up: 

“You give us the numbers, you give us the nine day stay in the home, (you give us 
grey hairs with your copy dates, but they’re shorter than most magazines), you give 
us regional flexibility 

‘in short, you give us what we want 

“Besides which,’’ he called from the lift, “you’re always a prime recommendation 
from our advertising agency, D’Arcy-MacManus & Masius Limited. 

“And when one of the leading agencies in the country speaks, we listen.”

per cent rise so far this year,

well above that for toe UK equity

has received £9m since its incep- 
tion just over & year ago. This is 
a straight forward high income 
fund, invested entirely in high 
yielding equities for growth in 
both income and. capital, with the 
initial yield 9.6 per cent gross.

the Middlesex-based hydraulic coupling group. The offer 
compr.&s five Tilling shares fur every eight Fluidrive. Although 
the Board of Fluidrive has yet to respond, the bid's success is 
lskely i:» hinge on the reaction of the institutional shareholders

lo buy out the 22.99 per cent minurity shareholding which it 
does nnf already own in its subsidiary Mitchell Coils Transport.

Poijits from Mr.-C. Alan McLintock’s review 
— Earnings per share show a rise of over 12 per cent, to 
2.66p~out of which we are recommending dividends totalling 
*.4p. Compared with 2.1 p in the previous year. The manage- 
ment remains committed, so far -as circumstances will allow, 
to a continuing increase both in earnings and dividends. 

—The future course of currencies is most uncertain, which 
underlines the need for all investment portfolios to have the 
international flavour which is provided by many investment 
trusts. At present we find the outiopk for overseas markets 
relatively attractive and we hope to exploit them profitably 
in the current year. 

— The world economic outlook remains overlaid with doubts 
about the extent and timing of recovery as well as continued 
threats of protectionism in the face of rising unemployment. 
At home we shall doubtless be faced with a General Election 
and all Us accompanying uncertainty. Despite the sombre 
background, we believe our managers will continue to give 
a good account of themselves for toe benefit of shareholders.

Invest in 
America now 

withlyndall 


■&A stake in the world’s richest 
economy. 

^An opportunity to invest when 
US shares are still cheap. 

Many shrewd investors see the good sense of 
having a part of their investment in the US now. 

Tyndall believe that US shares today still 
stand at attractively low prices and that the 
economic facts justify further substantial rises. 
Economic Strength 

On such fundamentals as profits, dividends and- - 
assets, American shares are now cheaper than 
they have been for a long time. Yet the U S 
economic indicators are strongly favourable, 
with an inflation rate of 6.7% last year and a rise 
in GNP of 5% in real terms. Corporate profits 
too continue to grow at a sustained pace - . 

This is why Tyndall believe that now could be 
a good time for investors to put some of their- 
money into America. 

Benefit from Tyndall experience 
Investors can how benefit from a unit trust 
managed by Tyndall, the London Wall 
International Fund, which is now invested 
exclusively in American shares. The Tyndall 
Group have extensive experience in American 
investment from their substantial overseas 
involvement over the past 10 years. 

The portfolio of investments concentrates on 
those leading U S shares which Tyndall believe . 
are now especially undervalued. For your 
information the estimated gross commencing 
yield on 3rd May 197S was 2.15% and the offer 
price 33.0p. 

You can invest from £500 upwards in the 
London Wall International Fund. For further 
information, including a statement of 
investments, please complete the coupon below 
or telephone Tyndall at London 01-242 9367,

THE M&G GROUP 


HONG KONG STOCK EXCHANGES 


Merger meets opposition 


BY ANTHONY ROWLEY IN HONG KONG 

FROM AN overseas point of of merger, 
view, the moves gaining pace to problem fa 
merge the four existing stock committee 
exchanges here— the Far East, the workin 
the Hong Kong, the Kam Ngan have the ; 
and the Kowloon — into one united exch 
" United Stock Exchange " must Another 1 
appear sensible and tidy. The log suitable 
internal politics are formidable, body to op 
however. here admi! 

There would have been more building in 
than four exchanges had not of providing 
securities legislation been square feet 
brought in around the time of be needed f

about to open when the ban There ar 
came in, as stockbrokers, com- existence a 
modify brokers, lawyers, accoun- East and K 
tants and all and sundry bought share rradi 
scats. step tnwarc 


of merger, will not be the only 
problem faced by the executive 
committee (to be formed from 
the working party) which will 
have the job of running the 
united exchange. 

Another headache will be find- 
ing suitable premises for the new 
body to operate from. Officials 
here admit that there is no 
building in the Colony capable 
of providing the 20.000 to 25,000 
square feet of space that would 
be needed for the four exchanges 
to operate on one floor. As a 
compromise, the new exchange 
might have to operate fnm two 

floors, initially at least. 

There are in fact plans in 
existence already for the Far 
East and Kowloon exchanges to 
Share Trading floors an a first 
step towards rloser union, and 


Persuasion 

Since then the Government has 
sought to reverse the trend and 
to persuade the four exchanges 
to merge into one “ voluntarily.” 
Mr. Thilip Haddon-Cave, the 
Financial Secretary, has hinted 
that if persuasion fails he might 
legislate for a marriage. 

Even so, several of the 
exchanges have been dragging 
their feet heavily, although with 
the official tareet date of January, 
1980, for union getting closer 
they have come under increasing 
pressure from the official 
Securities Commission here to 
produce a merger scheme. 

Earlier this month, the 
exchanges produced the form if 
not the suhsfance of a merger. 
The working party on unification, 
set up at official behest, and com- 
prising two representatives from 
each of the four exchanges, 
agreed that a new holding com- 
pany be set up to effect the 
merger and that the four exist- 
ing exchanges become its initial 
subscribers. This holding com- 
pany is expected to be registered 
soon. 

This “Hongkong United Stock 
Exchange " as It is being pro- 
visionally termed, will subsume 
the Federation of Stock 
Exchanges, the chairman of 
which (curronnly Mr, Peter Chan, 
bead of the Kowloon Stock 
Exchange) will become the chair- 
man of the new holding company. 
Thereafter the chairmanship is 
intended to rotate among the 
exchanges although some of them 
may choose to liquidate if and 
when the united exchange is 
formed it may not be possible to 
fulfill this plan. 

Reconciling the existing power 
groups and loyalties within the 
present four exchanges, most of 
which seem opposed to the idea 


R ossibly full merger. The Kara 
Igan and Hong Kong arc expec- 
ted to follow suit, so that within 
six to nine months the four 
exchanges should be operating on 
two, instead of four, floor*. 

Many brokers argue that the 
partial merger of the four 
exchanges effectively into two 
units is as far as rationalisation 
needs to go, particularly if the 
initial links develop into full 
mergers. Given intcr-cxchange 
trading, which exists here 
already, and unified trading and 
listing rules, planned for this 
year, the four will be as one any- 
way. the brokers argue. 

Brokers are also cynical about 
the cost benefits which Mr. 
Haddon-Cave has pointed to in 
justification of his pressure for a 
merger. The more wealthy 
exchanges, such as the Hong 
Kong which derives a great deal 
of its income from investments, 
foresee a substantial leakage of 
capital from the system in the 
event of existing exchanges 
liquidating after the formation of 
the new one, and thus high costs 
for those brokers who choose to 
become members of the new 
exchange. 

The assumption is that many of 
those who bought seats on the 
stock exchanges in the hoom five 
years ago — they included lawyers 
and accountants who got in 
before the 1974 securities ordi- 
nance banned such people from 
membership — would opt out. 
Market turnover has slumped to 
levels where no members are 
thought to have made a profit 
last year, and once-lucrative new- 
issue activity, including private 
placements, has largely dried up. 

The projection of a better 
image abroad for the Hong Kong 
stock market as a whole, which 
Mr. Haddon-Cave foresaw result- 
ing from the merger is not some- 
thing which impresses the brok- 
ing community here overmuch. 


Neither is the supposed ability of 
foreign institutional Investors to 
monitor prices more closely □□ 
one exchange instead of on four. 

Most of the overseas invest- 
ment in the Hong Kong stock- 
market nowadays comes from the 
overseas Chinese in south-east 
Asia, with London probably 
being the second most important 
source and Switzerland the third. 
There Is some U S. investment 
and Japanese portfolio invest- 
ment here is said to be on the 
point of revival. 

A good deal of this investment 
is channelled through the bigger 
brokers and the banks, who deal 
through all four exchanges here, 1 
anyway, the leading stocks being 
quoted on all of them. It is 
argued that, with inter-exchange 
trading in operation since last 
August, prices are rarely far 
apart Common listing require- 
ments, which are being intro- 
duced regardless of whether the 
exchanges alt merge, may 
impress disclosure-conscious U.S. 
institutions hut they will hardly 
sway Chinese or even Japanese 
investors, hrokers argue. 

One official argument which 
looks incontrovertible, however, 
is that common listing and trad- 
ing rules (covering settlement 
and delivery! would he easier to 
police through one exchange 
rather than four, and that this 
would enhance the credibility of 
the Hong Kong market with out- 
siders. 

Commission rates 

Tire exchanges are thought to 
oppose being merged intn one 
on the grounds that it will er.d 
their abiliiy to compere on com- 
mission rates around the national 
level-— currently 0.5 per cent on 
equities except in the case of 
banks, for which it is 0.25 per 
rent, The hank*, it is said, like 
to play off the exchanges against 
each other on commission rates. 
The Securities Commission, how- 
ever. says that in the end it will 
tolerate “competition among 
brokers, not among exchanges, 
and on service rather than com- 
mission rates." 

Even so. there are some real 
doubts ahout whether the 
Government will succeed in get- 
ting the merger implemented by 
1980 and whether, if it came to 
the point, the Government would 
overcome its traditional reluc- 
tance to intorfrre in the private 
sector and legislate rnr a merger. 
A test may be Mr. Faddcn- 
Cave's success nr otherwise in 
getting his controversial amend- 
ment proposing taxing of hanks' 
offshore profits through the 
Legislative Council bere in July.

Stakes changing in Proton Chemical 


. BY LEO GONZAGA 

“MAJORITY OWNERSHIP of 
Proton Chemical Industries, 
which is undertaking a coconut- 
based chemical manufacturing 
project, has changed from 
Filipino hands to Japanese. Until 
recently Proton was a 6040 joint 
venture between Coco Chemical 
Philippines and two Japanese 
partners, New Japan Chemicals 
Company and Toyo Mcnka 
Kaisba. 


Proton is setting up a proces- 
sing Complex consisting of a 
methyl ester plant and an alkonol 
anide plant In Atimonan Town. 
Quezon Province, on the Pacific 
side of the main Philippine 
island of Luzon. Both plants will 
utilise coconut as their main 
processing material.

National distributors of timber, building materials,

Extracts from the Chairman’s statement year ended 
December 31 st 1 977, 

Profits before tax for the year were £3,794,000 against £4,232,000 
the previous year. 

This year it has been decided to follow recommendations of 
the Accounting Standards Committee Exposure Draft 19. 

As a result net tangible assets for ordinary and deterred 
ordinary shares have increased to £18,336,000, equivalent to 
• £2.15 pence per share. 

•- - Profit margins-for general building and plumbing materials 
came under pressure as a result of the continued low level of 
activity in the construction trade. During the year private 
housing starts fell by thirteen per cent and public sector starts 
by over twenty per cent Prices of softwood, plywoods and 
' ‘ wallboards fell sharply In the second half and we felt It prudent 

to reduce the value of certain timber stock holdings at the 
. . year end. 

The indications are that the sustained period of lower 
interest rates and high -levels of lending by the Building 
Societies are leading now to a revival of confidence by house 
builders and that the rest of the year will show an improvement 
in building activity.

MANILA. June 2. 

Fllipisation in the corporate 
scene in recent weeks. Earlier, 
foreigners took over control of 
Diabort Products Philippines 
Incorporated from Filipinos. 

DiafmrL a manufacturer of 
diamond drill bits, used to be a 
subsidiary' of the copper pro- 
ducer, Lepanto Consolidated 
Mining Company. Dbmanl Board 
S.A. of Belgium bought 17 per 
cent of Lepanto's 51 per cent 
holding In Diabort as well as the 
ten per cent combined Diabort 
holdings of two other Filipinu 
stockholders, Marblecraft Incor- 
porated and P. D. Ocampo — 
making a total of 27 per cent. 

Proton, which is registered 
with the government's Board of 
Investments (BOH as a preferred 
pioocer enterprise, informed BOl 
the other day that the two 
Japanese partners have raised 
therr equity in the company from 
40 to 51 per cent and that Coco 
Chemicals, the former majority 
owner of Proton, has just 
become a minority joint venture 
participant. 

The reaction of the govern- 
ment is not yet clear as this 
point. There is no ceiling on 
foreicn investments in preferred 
pioneer enterprises. But such 
an enterprise, where non- 
nationals own more than 40 per 
cent of the total equity, is 
requir’d to " Filipinise." or 
bring down foreign ownership 
to (he prescribed ceiling within 
a certaio period. 

Earlier moves 

The Filipino equity in Diabort 
was thus reduced to Le panic's 
34 per cent, while the foreign 
equity was expanded to 86 per 
cent, made up of the 27 per cent 

recent acquisition by Diamanl 
and the existing 39 per cent held 
by iis Australian-based sub- 
sidiary. Boart Ply Limited. The 
majority ownership change took 
place without Board of Invest- 
ments approval, since the area 

of activity involved is not 
covered by the 60 per cent 
minimum nationality require- 
ment.

Exf reefs from the Chairman's Statement 

It gives me great pleasure to pay tribute to Sir Charles Ciore who retired at the 
end of last year after serving as Chairman of your Company for 25 years. From 
a group which had about 8,000 employees, gross assets of £1 0 million, turnover 
of £1 0 million and profits before tax of £1 million, it has now become an inter- 
national group with over 60,000 employees, gross assets of £750 million, turn- 
over of £981 million and profits before tax of £65 million. It is an achievement 
which must be almost unique in the modem business world. 

1 am very pleased that Sir Charles has agreed to remain a director of your Company 
and will continue to involve himself with our affairs, primarily those overseas, 
which will be of immense help to us in our expansion programme. 

We continue to invest in each of our activities and have confidence in the future, i 
based on our inherent strengths of assets, liquidity and manpower, 
ft is your Board's intention to continue our present policies of consolidation and 
expansion of our businesses, enlarging them where possible, particularly in 
Europe and North America. 

The Sears group is primarily engaged in the retailing and services industries; If 
the U.K. economy improves, we should benefit In all aspects of our businesses 
anc[_l look forward to an increased group profit in the current year.

Why all equities? 

Schlcsingcrs' Extra IncomcTrusl isa trustee 
in vest men l and offers one of the highest returns 
currently available from a unit trust invested only in 
ordinary shares. 

Whilst the managers could obtain a still higher 
yield by including some fixed interest investments, 
such investments cannot increase their dividends and 
also have less potential for capital growth. The all- 
equity portfolio of the Sehlcsingcr Extra Income 
Trusr. by conirasr, _ maximises the potential for growth 
of income and capital. 

A current opportunity 

By careful selection of sound stocks including 
attractive recovery situations and well-researched 
regional equities. Sehlcsingcrs provide a particularly 

high equity-based yield. 

However the grow ing relative attraction of 
ordinary shares with very high yields suggest that 
such yields may not be available to new investors 
indefinitely. 

Indeed, many investors have recognised the 
urgency of securing this opportunity by placing over 
£*>ni in the fund since its inception in May 1977. 

Over this period, (he unit price has risen 24% and the 
FT Actuaries All-share Index 17 

We therefore recommend immediate investment 
at the current, high rate nr return to gain the potential 
of capital appreciation. Your investment should be 
regarded as long-term. 

Schlesingers’ P3MS service 

Minimum investment in the fund is £500. 
Investors of £2.500 or more will receive the Schlcsinger 
Personal Inxesimcnt Management Service (PI MS)

KEMPT ON'S CENTENARY cele- 
brjthn day programme looks set 
lo attract a deservedly large 
croYvd to the Sunbury course 
today. 

The jackpot supported pro- 
5 rajuiiie has several formating 
contests including the trainers' 
centenary cclcbraliun invitation 

KEMPTON

2.45— Ri be 11am 


race in which Guy Harwood. Pat 
Rohan. Frod Winter. Pat Taffe. 
Jan Balding and Barry Hills all 
have mounts. 

I am prepared to take a chance 
with the ex-Irish Silly Season 
four-year-old Vital Season. ThU 
gelding trained by Herbert 
Bla grave vou a competitive 
maiden CYent at Wexford last 
year and by all acu-iunts he is 
ready to dn himself and rider Ian 
Balding full justice. 

The best race from liie belling 
point of view is the S.H. Hyde 
Founders tv. o-v ear-old slakes. In 
this race Schwvp pc shire Lad 
should become the first juvenile 
in win four races this year in 
Britain. 

Trainer. Michael Stout c has 
made nn secret of the fact that 
Schweppeshire Lad needs a fast 
surface to show himself at his 
peak, and with aroand conditions 
Idea) Tor him ir will be 
disappointing if he cannot out- 


pace his two opponents Pedihus 
and Nocturnal Buy. 

Although Pedibu*. a bay colt 
by Sauiingo did well to defeat 
Native -Jewel by 1J- lengths at Ayr 
in his only race, after disputing 
die lead lbrnughoui. 1 believe 
forecast hackers may do best to 
rely on Nocturnal Boy. 

This. 17,500-guineay yearling 
purchase, a bair-hroUier by 
Realm to the Irish 1.00U Guineas 
winner Nocturnal Spree, has 
been working extremely YveU and 
it seems significant that trainer 
Neville Callaghan has opted for 
this event, in preference to 
several alternatives. 

Although Lester J'iggott has 
nnted for the recent N'evrmarket 
winner. Double Form in the 
ppven-fur longs Heror. Stakes 1 
intend siding with that extremely 
speedy sprinter. Persian Bold, 
who. despite not quite getting the 
trap, finished 5lh behind Rowland 
Gardens in ihe 2.non Guineas. 
Persian Bold is another who will 
be in his element on the fast 
ground.

Granges to sell shipping 
side as losses mount 


BY JOHN WALKER 

GRANGES, the Swedish steel, 
shipping and engineering group, 
told shareholders at the annual 
meeting that plans to divest the 
loss-making shipping division 
were in hand. Earlier hopes of 
saving the shipping sector have 
thus been dashed. Both the chair- 
man Hans Werthen and the 
managing director Bo Abrahams- 
son said that they had hoped to 
keep this sector going but it was 
now out of the question. 

For 1977 the group's losses 
have amounted to Kr 891m on 
turnover of Kr 5J.bn, which gives 
an accumulated loss of Kr ibn 
($2 15m ) f or the past two years. 
But, Mr. Abrahamsson said that 


he hoped the loss would be 
heavily reduced this year and 
that the company could well re- 
turn to profit in 1979. 

During 1977 Granges disposed 
of its mining and steel operations 
to the semi-stale owned slcel 
company SSAB. closed down jis 
offshore engineering operations 
and cut back its civil engineering 
operations. The closure of the 
shipping division will mean re- 
dundancy for about 4(10 crew, and 
some 50 administrative jobs at 
the company's headquarters.

STOCKHOLM, June 2. 

KraOOm over the next three 
years, chairman Mr. P. Soltoeft 
told the annual meeting yester- 
day. Overall profit this year is 
expected to be 11 considerably 
improved " in comparison in 
1977, providing the current 
foreign exchange value of the 
krone is maintained. 

Fertiliser sales had been “ par- 
ticularly good " this spring and 

the group expected that the 
second half of the year would 
also see favourable sales on 
home and foreign markets. In 
1977 Superfos made pre-tax 
profits nf XrlOTra on sales of 
Kr2.9Sbn.

Hansa 
dividend to 
be axed 

By Guy Hawttn 

FRANKFURT, June 2. 
BREMEN-based shipping line, 
Deutsche Dampfschifffahrts- 
Gesellschaft “Hansa" tp-day re- 
ported that it had been bard hit 
by the heavy over-capacity in 
the world shipping market last 
year and would be passing its 
dividend — for the first time since 
1956. 

Both the charter market and 
line services were severely 
affected. Freight rates were 
pushed heavily downwards, said 
the group’s report 
While news of the group's poor 
trading performance came as no 
surprise, the management’s state- 
ment gave shareholders few 
crumbs of comtort No signs of 
an end to the state of surplus in 
the market could be seep, it said. 
There was major Improvement in 
the transport sector in sight 
The year was “ thoroughly un- 
satisfactory." Good results from 
subsidiaries, including ship sales, 
had served to offset « DM 33m 
loss from the shipping business. 

Net profits slumped from the 
previous year’s DM6.3m to just 
DM37.400. Overall sales increased 
slightlv from DM475 .Sin to 
DM50&6m ($243m.). Capital 

investment increased from DM 
143.3m to DM245J2m, while 
depreciation rose from DH40.7m 
to DM44.9m. 


Rapid growth in Swiss 
foreign bank assets 


BY JOHN WICKS 

THE expansion of the Euro- 
money. market has taken place 
in financial centres like London 
and Luxembourg rather than in 
Switzerland in recent years to 
judge by the rapid growth of 
| foreign bank assets. This was 
staled by Dr. Eric Gasser, chair- 
man of the Association of 
Foreign Banks in Switzerland, at 
a Zurich Press conference. 
Gasser added that all signs 
pointed to a continuation of this 
pattern. 

In the past five years the share 
of foreign-controlled banks and 
foreign banks’ ‘branches in 
Switzerland has stabilised at 
about 10 per cent of the coun- 
try’s total hank assets. The 
number of foreign banks, includ- 
ing branches, has also remained 
almost unchanged at rather 
below one hundred. 

Gasser attributed what he

called the “relative stagnation” 
of foreign banking activities in 
Switzerland to restrictive 
reciprocity regulations, high 
equity requirements. Increasing 
restrictions on international 
hanking by the Swiss authorities 
and the difficulty to obtain work 
permits for foreigners. 

The combined assets of foreign 
banks in Switzerland reached 
some SwFr 36.7bn in 1977. a rise 
or 7.3 per cent over the previous 
year. There is a much greater 
relative importance of fiduciary 
business. however. some 

SwFr 25.1hn of last year's total 
Swiss fiduciary business of 
SwFr 56 bn having been 
accounted for by foreign hanks. 

Profitability of foreign banks 
in Switzerland was “generally 
satisfactory ” In 1977. Gasser told 
journalists. though profit 

prospects for the current year 
were less certain. 


Pan Malaysia Cement setback 


BY WONG SULONG 

ANOTHER bad year for Pan 
Malaysia Cement Works has 
ended with profits falling by 27 
per cent to 3.23m ringgits. The 
group is cutting its dividend — 
for the year ended March — to 
15 per cent from 17 per cent. 

The parent company derives 
most of its income from divi- 
dends of associates, whose profits 
fell by 20 per cent to 23.9m 
ringgits of which PMCW’s share 
fell by the same percentage to 
9.65m ringgits. The company’s 
operations in Singapore were hit 
fay oversupply, as well as higher 
costs for clinked while the 
Malaysian business was hit by 
higher production costs, and a

fixed - government controlled 
price for cement. 

The only bright spot came from 
its shipping and trading associ- 
ate Twincem. which increased 
profits by IS per cent to 3.1m 
ringgits.

Ganda. a Malaysian group of 
companies. with oil palm 
interests in Perak State, has 
secured loans and credit facili- 
ties totalling 22.4m ringgits from 
five Malaysian banks. The Joans 
would be used to finance the 
building of an oil palm refinery, 
and to repay loans which the 
group had earlier borrowed at 
higher rates of interest. 


Dollar slide 
underpins 
bond revival 
in Germany 

Bjr Jeffrey Brown 

WITH this week’s consumer 
price statistics putting double 
figure inflation rates in the U.S. 
beyond doubt. international 
money has been flooding back 
into the hard currency centres 
of Europe. In the domestic 

bond market in West Germany 
this has been reflected in some 
very sharp price movements over 

the past few days, notably among 

longer maturities with ten year 

bonds rising by more than two 
points on average. 

The Bundesbank has been re- 
versing earlier support policy 
and selling substantial amounts 
of stock — in the first two days of 
the week central bank purchases 
totalled DM 178m but subsequent 
sales have swamped this figure 
— and dealers are once 3gain 
beginning to speculate on the 
possibility of a revival of the new 
issue market. Mucfe depends on 
the success or otherwise of this 
week's tender in Kas.senoJ>hga- 
tinnen Jthree and four year 
paper which raised DM l.Tbn 
when last issued in March i which 
closed for subscription noon 
yesterday. 

Beyond this, a DM 700m issue 
by the Federal Railways (Bun- 
desbahn) which was first 
mooted at the end of April could 
now shortly appear, and a num- 
ber of local Government 
borrowers are known to be wait- 
ing eagerly in the wings. 
Bavaria and the Saarland be- 
tween them could shortly tap 
the market for around DM 650m. 

Foreign exchange considera- 
tions remain the markets over- 
riding influence, however, and 
not all dealers are entirely 
sanguine about the chances of 
a ” finm consolidation " at the 
present level. The dollar has 
shed something like 2 per cent 
against the Deutsche Mark since 
Monday last and clearly the 
foreign exchange situation is 
very fluid- 

At the same lime, there is a 
danger, as things stand, that any 
rush to float new paper will get 
out of hand. The backlog of 
borrowers huilt up in recenl 
weeks could quickly unsettle 
what is still a relatively fragile 
new fouDd market confidence. 

Meantime, the oversupply posi- 
tion in the market for foreign 
denominated Deutsche Mark 
bonds is gening close to equali- 
briura. A decision on whether 
or not to reopen this market to 
borrowers is likely to be taken 
next Wednesday: this market has 
been closed to new issues for 
almost a month. 


Flick in SlOOm. deal 


BY JOHN WYLES 

WEST GERMANY'S Flick Group 
has added to the rising tide of 
foreign investment in the U.S. 
hv purchasing for -SlOOm in cash 
some 4J5m cf convertible 
preference stock of United States 
Filter Corporation, a leading 
engineering supplier for the 
energy industries. 

The new preference stock is 
convertible into the New York- 
based company's common shares 
on a one-for-one basis and 
amounts to about 34.5 per cent 
of U.S. Filter's total voting stock. 

Three Flick representatives 
will he joining ihe U.S. Filter 
Board immediately with a fourth 
to be added later. 

The Flick Group is one of West 
Germany's leading privately- 
owned companies which in 1975 
disposed nf a '-9 per cent stake in 
Daimler Benz for S975m. Its 
decision to commit some of the 
proceeds to direct investment in 
the U.S. adds to a stream of in- 
vcslmenis made this '-ear by 
West German companies. Accord- 
ins to a recent survey. West 
German and UK companies 
accounted for 39 of the SI direct 
investments in U.S. manufactur- 
in': in the first quarter of this 
vear. 

Mr. Raymond Rich, chairman 
and chief executive of U.S. 
Filter, said today that the deal 
with the Flick Group “ sub- 


stantially enhances the com- 
pany’s financial resources hy 
increasing the total stockholders 
equity to about S250m.” He 
added that U.S. Filter would now 
be in a good position to achieve 
its growth objectives. 

The company’s first quarter 
results this year were bit by 
delays in implementing several 
pipeline and energy’ projects 
which w mil i.l have been pur- 
chases or its air and water pol- 
lution control equipment. 4t 
11 cents a share, earnings were 
only one-third of last year’s first 
quarter. For 1977 as a whole, 
U.S. Filter returned a net profit 
of Sl3.9m on sales of S423.7m. 

However, ihe company's pros- 
pects have been improved by its 

recent tender offer which raised 

its stake in Filtml. a leading pro- 
ducer of catalysts, from 50.7 per 
cent to around 84 per cent. 
Filtrol bad net profits in 1977 of 
S6.1m on sales of $S9m. 

Adrian Dicks unites from Bonn: 
A spokesman for ’the Flick 
group in Duessvldorf this eve- 
ning described U.S. Filters as 
one of the most progressive and 
technologically advanced engin- 
eering companies in the world.

CBS response to suit 


; BY DAVID LASCELLES 

! COLUMBIA BROADCASTING 
• System, one of the country’s lar- 
gest broadcasting and publish- 
ing companies, has been charged 
by the Justice Department with 
violating anti-trus! laws through 
its acquisition last year of a 
large paperback publisher. 

In a suit filed yesterday, the 
Justice Department, wants CBS 
to divest itself of Fawcett Publi- 
cations on (he grounds that the 
! acquisition eliminated competi- 
tion between the two companies 
in the highly competitive mass 
publications market. 

CBS already owned Popular 
Library Books, the llih largest 
mass market publisher which has 
sales of SlOni, when it bought 
Fawcett last year for $50m. Faw- 
cett then ranked fifth in the 
market with sales of $37m. and 
brought CBS total market share 
to about 12 per cent. 

CBS reacted sharply to the 
suit, saying that it was both 
unjustified and surprising in 
view of the fact that the Justice 
Department had been notified of 
the proposed acquisition long be- 
fore it went through, and had 
said it bad no objection. 
FIRST MISSISSIPPI Corporation 
said it cannot explain why its 
stock price has risen on the 
NYSE, reports AP-DJ from 
Jackson. 

"There’s nothing." said Mr. 
James Lange, secretary and 
treasurer of the company. 

Mr. Lange said the company

in South Louisiana and there 
has been activity in that area 
by other companies. However, 
First Mississippi’s prospect hasn’t 
shown any results and “I cer- 
tainly wouldn't say that was the 
cause" of the stock activity.

tion control would be comple- 
mentary to those of the Flick 
companies. 

With a turnover of DM 7 ^bn- 
in 1976. Flick’s principal interests 
are in the foundries and mech- 
anical engineering industries, 
chemicals, paper end board, and 
plant construction. Its major 
subsidiaries in West Germany are 
Buderus/Krauss Mallei. Feld- 
muehle and Dynamit-Nobel. 

Flick’s U.S. Filters deal is its 
second large investment in a 
major American company. In the , 
autumn of 1975 it acquired 12 
per cent of W. R. Grace, the 
chemicals group, to become the 
biggest single shareholder. 

The DM 2bn which Flick re- 
ceived from the sale of its 29 
per cent stake in Daimler-Benz 
in early i£175 must be reinvested 
by the end of this year in pro- 
jects approved by the West Ger- 
man Ministry of Economics, if 
Flick is to avoid paying capital 
gains tax on iL 

Including its move into U.S. 
Filters and its recent acquisition 
of 75 per cent of Versicherunss 
Holding der Deuischcn Industrie, 
which in turn owns 51 per cent 
of the Gcrling insurance group. 
Flick now appears to have in- 
vested rather more than 
DM 750m in purposes which 
would qualify for a tax break. 

Despite speculation in Ger- 
many that Flick i s in a hurry to 
find further acquisitions for the 
DM 1-1 -bn cash which it is still 
believed to have in hand, the 
privately - controlled group's 
spokesman emphasised this eve- 
ning that it remains primarily 
interested in finding attractive 
prospects with promise for the 
future. “No one is forcing us. 
and we do not feel under 
pressure of time." the Flick 
spokesman told the Financial 
Times.

coffee state of ParafiS. is 
believed not to have damaged 
the crop, but coming so early 
in the season it produced near- 
panic reactions on world 
markets. • . 

Brazil's 1978 coffee crop is cur- 
rently estimated at about 17m 
bags (00 kilos each), after a cut 
of 2m bags in the estimate 
because of a severe drought. If 
the frost does any damage it will 
•be fo the 1979 cron which is 
flowering at the moment. 

. Early in the week the market 
was boosted bv the tight supply 
situation on the Mav position, 
which expired on Tuesday. This 
was due to an unusually large 
uncovered- position, which was 
maintained right ut> until the 
fijial afternoon of trading. 

Cocoa prices moved lower on 
Tuesday and Wednesday, but 
steadied on Thursday as atten- 
tion- was distracted by the sharp 
rise .in coffee. The market rallied 
briefly yesterday morning, but 
buying dried up as signs of pro- 
ducer selling emerged. 

By lhp end of the day Septem- 
ber cocoa was quoted at £1,6455 
a tonne, down £15 on the day and 
£71.on the week. 

In Abidjan. Ivory Coast a 
meeting of the Cocoa Producers’ 
Alliance decided to seek renego- 
tiation of the existing inter- 
national Cocoa ' Agreement, 
renorts Reuter. . 

The present agreement expires 
next October, but one of its 
articles provides for new pro- 
posals to be made for its exten- 
sion or renegotiation- ,

Rise in bill rate 


Bank of England Minimum 
Lending Rate 9 per eent 
(since May 12. 1978) 

The Treasury biU rate rose by 
0.29D3 per cent to S.7728 per cent 
at yesterday’s tender, which 
would have produced a rise of 
I per cent in Bank of England 
Minimum Lending Rate under the 
old marker related formula. 

Under the present system MLR 
remains at 9 per cent however. 
The minimum accepted bid was 
£97.79, compared with £97.8$i, and 
bids at that level were met as to 
about 8 per cent, compared with 
92 per cent. The £400m bills 


tendered and allotted attracted 
bids of £686.3901, and all bills 
offered were allotted. 

Next week £300m will be on 
offer replacing a similar number 
of maturities. 

Day-to-day credit was in good 
supply in general, although con- 
ditions tended to remain patchy. 
The authorities -sold a small 
amount of Treasury bills to the 
discount houses, hut this was 
probably not enough to absorb 
the full surplus. 

Banks brought forward the 
expected surplus balances, and 
the market was also helped by 


an excess of Government dis- 
bursements over revenue pay- 
ments to the Exchequer. On the 
other hand there was a slight rise 
in the note circulation. 

Discount houses paid up to 7} 
per cent for secured call loans, 
and closing balances were taken 
at 6-7j per cent. 

In the interbank market over- 
night loans opened at 7j-8l per 
cent and traded at a general level 
of 71-7} per cent, :but> touched 
8-8} per cent before lunch. Rates 
finished at around 4-6 per cent. 

. Rates in the table below are 
nominal in some cases. 1

EXCHANGES AND BULLION 


FOREIGN EXCHANGES 


The dollar finished around its 
weakest level 0 / the day against 
most other major currencies 
yesterday, but showed signs of 
recovering later in New York, 
possibly with the help of inter- 
vention by the U.S. authorities. 
The dollar closed in London at 
StvFr I.RR10 against the Swiss 
franc, compared with SwFr 1.8920 
previously, and at DM 2.08071 in 
terms of the D-mark, compared 
with DM 2.09024 on Thursday. 

The U.S. currency’s trade- 
weighted depreciation since the 
Washington Currency Agreement 


York, widened to 5.91 per cent 
from 5.72 per cent Its index, on 
Bank of England figures, fell to 


Sterling also bad a softer tone. 


and may have received some 
support from the Bank of 
England. It opened at S1.S215-

Stock markets were looking 
rather jaded as the week drew to 
a close yesterday. Recent dullness 
in the Gilt-edged sector became 
more pronounced against the 
background of the continuing 
deadlock between the institutions 
and the authorities over the 
money supply. Scattered offerings 
were sufficient to push the longer 
maturities down by 2 be Tore bear 
covering left final quotations ! 
off on balance; the shorts also 
finished above the worst with 
losses ranging to 3. The Govern- 
ment Securities index fell 0.54 to 
a fresh 1978 low nf 69.36. making 
n loss of 0.74 over the last four 
trading days. 

The equity leaders were not 
helped by the reaction in Gilts. 
A leading broker’s bearish circu- 
lar on the outlook for the UK 
economy also tended to dampen 
enthusiasm and light selling took 
the FT 30-share index down 4.6 
to its lowest of the day at 11 am. 
Prices, however, recovered a little 
and the index ended 2.7 off on 
balance at 475.5. 

Secondary issues followed in the 
wake of the leaders — falls were 
in a majority over rises by nearly 
2-1 in FT-qubted Industrials — but 
a number of useful rises were 
recorded following favourable 
trading statements, while bid 
situations, both rumoured and 
actual, alsn produced the occa- 
sional bright spot. Official mark- 
ings of 4.99S compared with 4 .S3 1 
on Thursday and 5,568 a week 
ago. 

Gilts down again 

The rise in Treasury BUI rates 
coupled with continuing worries 
over the lack of any initiative 
from the authorities over the 
money supply made for marked 
weakness in the Gilt-edged sector 
yesterday. Selling was fairly 
modest, but the market was vul- 
nerable in the prevailing thin con- 
ditions and prices were quick to 
react to the smallest of offerings. 
Long-dated stocks fell away quite 
sharply to record falls extending 
l before staging a small rally 
which left final quotations with 
losses on the day ranging to l. 
It was a similar story in the shorts 
which closed with falls to around 
g, The announcement of the gold 
and currency reserve figures for 
May and the estimated Public 
Sector Borrowing Requirement 
for the first quarter of 1978 
appeared to have little impact on 
sentiment 

Just two days after recording 
the second heaviest traded total 
of 906, dealings in London 
Traded Options yesterday fell 
away to a mediocre 277 contracts. 
This is only 7 above the lowest 
total of 270 recorded on April 26. 
Yesterday, GEC registered the 


largest volume with 53 contracts 
done. .*2 of which took place in 
the newly-created July 280 series. 
Land Securities followed with 44 
and 40 were done in Marks and 
Spencer. 

Buyer's began to show interest 
in the investment currency pre- 
mium at the lower levels and. 
after moving between extremes of 
1051 and 104} per cent in good 
two-way trading, the premium 
closed at the former level, a frac- 
tion higher on the . day. Yester- 
day's conversion factor was 
0.6958 (0.6880). 

Banks easier 

Lethargic conditions prevailed 
in the Banking sector, as the 
major clearers drifted gently 
lower on lack of support. Barclays 
and Midland both closed 3 
cheaper at 330p and 3BQp respec- 
tively and NatWest ended a 
similar amount lower at 270p. 
Llovds closed a couple of pence 
off at 2S0p. after 27Sn. Australian 
issues were mixed. Bank nf Mew 
South Wales hardened 7 to 552p 
but Commercial Bank of Australia 
lost as much to 20Sp. Revived 
fears of higher interest rates 
unsettled Hire Purchases and 
Lloyds and Scottish softened 3 to 
SSn. 

Proceedings in Distilleries were 
dominated by the performance of 
McDonald Martin A which jump 
40 to 41 Op in a thin market od a 
report that Bass Charring ton will 
distribute the company's Highland 
Cream brand throughout Its 
branches; BC closed 3 cheaper at 
165p. but Toma tin closed a like 
amount up at 116p with the help 
of Press comment. 

Lethargic Buildings drifted low- 
er but demand developed for 
John Lalng A which put on 5 to 
168p. In secondary issues, special 
situations were responsible for 
the occasional adverse reaction. 
J. Smart closed 7 lower at 48p 
after sharply reduced first-half 
returns and the accompanying 
profits forecast, while Johnson- 
Richards Tiles fell 7 to 94p on 
the announcement that Hep worth 
Ceramic is not to proceed with 
its offer after the decision to refer 
the proposed merger to the Mono- 
polies Commission. ITEM remained 
dull after the results and eased 
2j more to 69jp, but further buy- 
ing prompted a rise of 21 in Jit. 
Holdings to a 1978 peak of 75p. 
In contrast, housebuilders Barrett 
Developments eased 3 to llOp on 
higher mortgage rate fears. 

Initially 4 easier, ICI picked up 
in late dealings to close just a 
penny lower on balance at S89p. 
Fisons cheapened 3 to 360p after 
35Sp. Coalite and Chemical shed 
3 more to 72p after Thursday's 
results and Carless Cape! eased 2 
to 35p in front of Tuesday’s 
figures. 

Electricals doll 

Electricals drifted gently lower 
in idle trading. Philips’ Lamp 
stood out at 935p, down 20p, while 
losses of around 6 were recorded 
in Decea A. 43Sp, and Thorn 


Electrical. 326p. Normand. at 4Sr». 
gave up half of the previous day's 
rise of 4 which followed the re- 
cord results. 

Stores had the occasional small 
fall. Martin the Newsagent 
shaded 3 to 248p in front of Mon- 
day’s interim statement, while 
Marks and Spencer. 145 p. and 
Mothercarc. 160p, lost 2 apiece. 
Dealings in Kunick Holdings were 
suspended yesterday at 5fp at pie 
company's request following 
acquisitions. Shoes had an isolated 
feature in Hiltons Footwear 
which advanced 4 to a 1978 peak 
of 9Sp. 

With the exception of Tubes, 
which edged forward 2 to 384 p. 


Kills, the miscellaneous Industrial 
leaders drifted gently lower in 
thin trading conditions to end the 
week on a dull note. EeecJiam, 
653 p. and Turner and New all. 
177p. lost 4 apiece, v.hiic Rank 
Organisation shed 5 to 2.Vjji and 
Unilever lost U tn 514. Ahead of 
Monday's preliminary result®. 
Metal Box softened 2 lu 3(l2p. Else- 
where, Newcy Group rose 7 to 
in response to the overnight offer 
from German concern William 
Prym-Werke and Carlton Indus- 
tries. currently in receipt of a 
cash bid of 165p per share from 
Hawker Siddeloy, gained 9 to a 
1978 peak of 202p following the 
better-lhan-expeclcd annual re- 



1974 1975 1976 1977 1978 


the Engineering majors contri- 
buted to the dull trend. Hawker 
lost 4 to 216p and Vickers softened 
a penny to 175p, after 173p. Else- 
where, Half Engineering became 
a notable firm feature, rising 6 to 
107p, after llOp, following country 
buying. Down i brae hardened a 
penny to 34p in response to the 
results and 600 Group closed a 
like amount better at 83p ahead 
of next Thursday’s preliminary 
figures. Anglo-Swiss picked up 
3 at 40p, while improvements of 
a couple of pence were seen in 
Baker Perkins, 95p, and Burgess 
Products, 44p. Capper-Neill, at 
76p, held on to the previous day’s 
gain of 5 that followed the good 
results and reports of record 
order books. 

Still reflecting seasonal in- 
fluences, Alpine Soft Drinks rose 
6 to 136p for a two-day gain of 
12 in Foods. Morgan Edwards 
rose 4 to a 1978 peak of 51p on 
renewed speculative interest, 
while Blnebird Confectionery 
picked up a like amount at 170p 
on the capital proposals. In 
Supermarkets. Hil lards, at 233p, 
gave up 10 of the recent good- 
advance. 

Newey up on bid 

Reflecting a sharp reaction in 


suits. Peter Black at 143p. re- 
corded a Press-inspired improve- 
ment of 6 and Photo-Die revived 
with a rise of 10 to 275p. while 
Securicor were firm again, the 
Ordinary rising 2 afreish to USp 
and the N/V 4 to lltip. Sale 
TIfney put on 4 at 272p and Elson 
and Robbins hardened 2 to USp; 
the latter's first half figures are 
due next Tuesday, Profit-taking 
after the previous days gain of 
10. prompted a reaction of S to 
332p in De La Rue: the pre- 
liminary figures are expected next 
Tuesday. 

Noteworthy movements were 
few and far between in a lack- 
lustre Motors and Distributors 
section. Brown Bros, were on offer 
at 23}p. down li. while Reliant 
eased a shade to ZOjp and Rolls- 
Royce 2 to Hop. 

Investment demand lifted Asso- 
ciated Book Publishers 7 to 192 p. 
while Benn Bros, added S to 72p 
on buying in a thin market. 
Thomson. 245p, held a small im- 
provement after recent dullness 
on reports downgrading North Sea 
oil prospects. In quietly’ traded 
Paper/Printings, Culler Guard 
Bridge gained 2 to 22p on the 
better-than-expected results and 
the Board's confident statement, 
whHe Saatebi firmed 5 to 152 p 


After a dull start, Properties 
steadied and were sometimes 
fractionally better by the dose. 
Lund Securities picked up to end 
u couple of pence to the good at 
21 Ip. Eisewbere, selective buying 
left Great Portland 6 higher at 
302 p and Country and New Town 

2 up at 2op. Further speculative 
interest left Property Partner- 
ships 5 dearer at LlOp, an appre- 
ciation of 30 on the week. On the 
other hand, 

BP down 

Oils remained depressed follow- 
ing Thursday's first quarter state- 
ment from British Petroleum. Ihc 
shares of which were fur-lher un- 
settled by rumours oF an immi- 
nent bearish circular and the 
price reacted to lower British 
Petroleum 10 to S68p. In sym- 
pathy. Shell eased 4 to 560p. 
Bormah shed 2 to «7p ahead of 
next week's AGM and Ultramar 
cheapened 4 to 274p. Elsewhere, 
Siebens UK met renewed profit- 
taking and retreated IS more to 
3SDp. a fail of 57 on the week in 
contrast tn the previous week's 
speculative advance oC 55. 

Lonrho featured laic, losing 4 
to a 1UTS low’ of 64p on the 
announcement by the Tanzanian 
High Commission in Loudon that 
the company must divest itself of 
Its Tanzanian interests within the 
next three months by selling them 
to the Tanzanian National 
Development Corporation. Ocean 
Wilsons, at IQSp, gave up 4 of the 
previous day's gain of 7: the pre- 
liminary figures are expected on 
June 12. 

Although closing w r ith wide- 
spread and often substantial gains, 
Investment Trusts attracted only 
a small business. Investment Trust 
Corporation hardened slightly to 
24fip following Thursday’s late 
jump of 42 on the bid approach, 
while rises of 5 were seen in 
Fundinvest Capital. 59 p, and Aus- 
tralia and International. 95p. Man- 
chester and London edged forward 

3 penny a 22p on the bid from 
Metropolitan Investment, while 
Crescent Japan finished 2 better 
at 160p on the company's financing 
arrangements. Numerous gains of 
between 3 and 6 included British 
Investment. 4 better at 163p. and 
City and Commercial Capital, 5 
higher at 106p. Financial had con- 
trasting movements in Fashion 
and General, 4 to the good at 120p, 
and London European Group, a 
like amount lower at 26p follow- 
ing the recent good speculative 
advance. 

Shippings put on another good 
showing, closing firmly after a 
reasonable trade. Furness Withv 
finished 3 harder at 263p, while 
British and Commonwealth. 2S7p, 
and Hunting Gibson. 150p, put on 

4 and 6 respectively. 

Levex came on offer at !£•», 
down a penny, on the report of 
continuing losses. Other dull 
Textiles included Courtaulds. 2 
easier at I23p, and Dawson Inter- 
national, 4 off at 131 p. Sidlaw. 
however, rallied 2 to 93p on 
further consideration of the 
interim report. 


South African .industrial issues 
drifted lower on investment doUair 
premium . influences. ' Abereom, 

9 0p, and Tiger Oats, 54p, both 
eased 5. 

A firm market of late, <jn buy-, 
ing in. anticipation of next Thurs- 
day's annual results, Gathrie.-en-: 
countered light pn fit-taking and- 
cheapened 2 to 320p. 

Australians quieter; 

Activity in the Australians, sec- 
tion of naming markets was much, 
quieter than of late. . ' 

The members of the Ashton 
diamond consortnan continued to 
attract speculative activity with 
Northern Mining recovering 
modestly to- close 5 better, on the 
day at 112p, although still 20 down 
on the week, while Gonzinc Rio- 
tinto were finally unchanged on 
balance at 230pr-14 lower over 
the longer period. The. London- 
registered “Tanks” eased’ a. penny 
more to 165p mainly reflecting the 
lower profits and reduced,. finaL 
dividend announced on Thursday. 

Australian 'base-metal miners 
opened showing modest losses re- 
flecting the overall downturn in 
overnight Sydney and Melbourne 
markets. But prices tended ' to 
pick up in the after-hours*: trade 
as arbitrage buying became 
evident. MUif Holdings rallied 
from 204r> initially to dose - a 
penny cheaper on ; balance at 2Q8o, 
while Western Mining were finally 
the same amount easier at'124p, 
after 121 p. . 

On the other hand, the - mare 
cnefrialative issues opened slightly 
firmer and remained .steady 
throughout the day. 

Uranium generally dosed . -a 
fraction easier on the - day and 
the week despite Wednesday’s, 
news that the Federal Parliament 
had passed six Bills backing the 
Australian Government's decision 
to re.su me the mining and export 
of uranium. „ 

In contrast with Australians; 
South African Golds were sub- 
dued throughout the week despite 
the strength of the bullion price, 
which was finally S2 higher at 
$185,375 per ounce yesterday and 
85.50 belter over the longer 
period. 

The Gold Mines index, 2.5 off at 
152.7 yesterday, ' was barely 
changed on the week. 

South African Financials moved 
similarly to Golds. Anglo Ameri- 
can and De Beers both 4 lower 
closed at 298p and 346 p respec- 
tively; the former's 15-month 
figures are expected early next 
week. 

London-domiciled Financials 
were quietly firm. HTZ ended un- 
altered yesterday at 22Sp but still 
6 better on* the week* reflecting 
the recent gains in. base-metal 
prices. .. ; 

Elsewhere, Northgate advanced 
2D more to a 197S high of 415p 
on consideration of the company’s 
holding in .Anglo United which, 
although unchanged yesterday at 
163p, showed a rise on the week 
of 30.

MAN OF THE WEEK 



Callaghan warnin' 
on Africa peace 


BY ELINOR GOODMAN 


HE IS. tn Im« rhantabk-. ar»und 
55. He wears a plain shirt and 

a rather baggy <mi and looks as 
if he would be at home on a 
•howljng green. .\ man who 
prides himself on being a blunt 
speaker, he js probably an active 
member of his trade uninn and 
can quote the rule honk chapter 
and verse. Ho has no conven- 
tional commercial experience 
but believes he has a right to 
participate in business. 

His female counterpart is 
about the same age Her whole 
appearance ia eminently sensible. 
Not for her blue rinses or 
flowery hats. She is a busy 
person who long ago learned 
that women have more to do in 
life than rear children. 

Both arc rather earnest wtih| 
a set nf beliefs to which they, 
are deeply committed. The* are! 
proud of their working class 
origins. Even though they own; 
a car— and quite possibly a. 
colour television — they can' 
remember the time when money 
was short and when people had 
to look to something other than 
the Stale when times were hard. 
A punchy verbal onslaught on 
capitalism will get them clapping 
appreciatively but they are 
suspicious of long haired tmellec- 
fuals {no. Theirs is a rather 
conservative form of radicalism. 

They are the active members 
nf Britain's 20*5 retail cn-nperative 
societies as wen this week in 
Scarborough, dutifully deserting 
the heath for the windowless 
Futurist theatre. It is these 
people who are delegated each 
year to represent the 10 6m 
co-operative members who ulti- 
mately own the Co-op. Britain’s 
largest retailer, milkman, farmer 
and undertaker. 


BY REGINALD DALE 

MR. JAMES CALLAGHAN, the 
Prime Minister, today called on 
African countries to speak out 
against outride interference in 
their affairs before it was too 
late. 

In a strong attack an Soviet 
and Cuban intervention in 
Afnca. he told the United 
Nations he was not content to 
see the continent “ misused by 
a new imperialism ” or become 
a neiv breeding ground for Ea»l- 
Wcm discord. 

Mr. »:allHghan. addressing the 
special tieneml Assembly session 
on disarmament, urged African 
countries to stand up for the 
principle.-* "f nun-Htlerference 
and the pea'.fFul settlement of 
disputi'S. If they did nni. they 
would find themselves caught up 
in an arms race, "with growing 
instability for their countries 
3nd increasing danger of wars." 

Before proceeding with longer 
term disarmament efforts, all 
countries should start immedi- 
ately by restraining the use of 
their armed forces, he said. 

*■ Countries will not renounce 
the further buildup of military 
power — still less will they take 
the first steps to reductions id 
armaments — if they see others, 
whether directly or by proxy, 
using existing military force as 
an instrument of foreign policy 
to scire advantage wherever 

they c.in." 

He supported an American pro- 
posal Tor the creation of a per- 
manent \jy standby peacekeep- 
ing force and called on the 


special session tn launch a study 
on ways of restricting the growth 
or conventional weapons through- 
out the world- 

One approach would be Lo 
tackle the problem regionally 
and multilateral!}' with the in- 
volvement on an equal footing 
of both suppliers and recipients. 

Mr. Callaghan called For 
changes in the chairmanship 
system at the Geneva disarma- 
ment conference under which 
only the U.S. and the Soviet 
Union are entit/ed to take the 
chair. He urged France and 
China, which have boycotted the 
Geneva talks at least partly in 
prole*! at this superpower 
monopoly, to take up their seats 
at the conference. 

Realistic 

The UK would he prepared to 
join other nuclear powers in far- 
reaching and permanent assur- 
ances not to use nuclear weapons 
against non-nuclear states. It 
would also support the establish- 
ment of further zones free nf 
nuclear weapons where all stales 
concerned agreed. 

General and complete dis- 
armament could not be an 
immediate objective. But there 
were area* in which real pro- 
gress could be made in a short 
but realistic time scale. 

The UK was ready In pul 
forward new proposals in the 
Geneva negotiations on a treaty 
banning all nuclear testing to 
open the way for speeding pro- 
gress on the outstanding issues. 


NEW YORK, -Jud" 5. 

An international nyaiein "f 
seismic stations would be 
needed to verify the agreement. 

Preparations should nov >t«fl 
fur a further round or strategic 
arms limitation talks, between 
Moscow and Washington I SALT 
llh. which should aim to reduce 
significantly the numbers *»f 
strategic systems and resinci 
their development and refine- 
ment. Ways must also be found 
In restrain nuclear armouries in 
Europe. 

Mr. Callaghan called for multi- 
lateral negotiations in Geneva *iu 
a pact banning the use of 
chemical weapons, and a success- 
ful conclusion to the Vienna 
negotiations aimed at reducing 
force levels in Central Europe. 

To aid disarmament negotia- 
tions all countries should pub- 
lish complete defence budget 
figures, he said. Britain was pre- 
pared to take part in a pilot 
scheme to try out a new U.Y 
system of budgetary measuring 
and reporting. 

He supported plans for a 
second special session on tlis- 
armament in 1981 " to call us all 
to account fur what we can 
achieve between this special 
session and the next." 

Mr. C. A- van der Klaauw. the 
Dutch Foreign Minister, pro- 
posed the establishment of 
an International Disarmament 
Organisation to deal with verifi- 
cation and implementation of 
Present aod future disarmament 
treaties, particularly those ban- 
ning chemical weapons and 
nuclear testings. 


Angry Carter denies 
freeze on SALT talks 


Sacred 




No single per«nn i* m charge 
of the Co-op. The movement ha. 4 
more than its slit 4 re of ehief 
executives and chairmen but. 
just as the Co-op itself i* com- 
posed nf over 200 autonomous 
societies, control is vested m 
many hands. The delegates are 
only typical of the minority of 
members who participate in elec- 
tions. But it is the active mem- 
bers who appoint the manage- 
ment and exert the power 
enshrined in the const i lui.ion. To 
them the constitution is almost 
sacred. 

They arc both the Co-op's 
greatest assets and its greatest 
handicap. The Co-op would have 
no- reason, for existing without 
them for it is they who ensure 
that ihe Co-op is not just 
another chain fighting the High 
Street war. Thev are rhe 
embodiment of that middle 
ground which the Co-op occupies 
somewhere between stale owner- 
ship and private enterprise. 

At Congress they repeatedly 
remind each other of the move- 
ment's sneial purpose — a phrase 
of almost mystical importance 
which encompasses everything 
from financing children’s groups, 
likely the woodcraft folk and 
adult education, to the move- 
ment's fundamental purpose of 
fighting private enterprise and 
ensuring that the members get 
the benefit oF mutual trading. 

Some nr these characteristics 
may be arimirahlc hut they do 
not make if easy for professional 
managers trying lo fighi a High 
Sired war which leaves little 
room for conscience. The profes- 
sional ui-inageim-ni has become 
increasing l\ strong over the 
years Bui grand schemes, such 
as Ihe much discussed plan to 
reduce the number of societies 
tn 2fi. are. for the mn*i part, 
ignored nnre delegates have left 
the almost evangelical atmo- 
sphere of congress and gone 
hack lo ihe terrimrial patches 
which they guard jealously. 


BY DAVID BELL 

PRESIDENT CARTER took the 
highly unusual step this morning 
of summoning news reporters lo 
his office and angrily describing 
a* "totally inaccurate” a report 
that hi» Administration had 
" frozen " talks with the Soviet 
Union on strategic arms limita- 
tion (SALT!. 

The report, in today’s Wash- 
ington Post, raised fresh ques- 
tions about American policy 
towards the Soviet Union follow- 
ing the deep divisions in the 
Administration thm were 
reflected both publicly and 
privately during this week’s 
NATO summit here. 

The Washington Po-q report 
said the Administration had 
deliberately adopted a new and 
much tougher line in the SALT 
negotiations, partly because «>f 
Soviet and Cuban activities in 
Africa and partly because it did 
not want to sign :i new treaty 
until after the November Con- 
gressional elections. 

The net effect of the new U.S. 
refusal to make any further con- 
cessions in the arms talks — dis-r 
closed earlier by Dr. Zbigniew 
Brzezinski. the national security 
adviser — bad been ” effectively 
to freeze ” the arm?, negotiations 


indefinitely, thp report said. 

Mr. Carter, pointing to a copy 
of the paper as he spoke, said 
the story was wrong and that "it 
damages our country and it 
damages my credibility." 

The Administration bud never 
even considered freezing the 
arms talks but wanted a new 
treaty “without delay because 
of political considerations," he 
said. 

Mr. Jody Powell. Hie Presi- 
dent's Press secretary, told 
reporters that the Adnunislra- 
l ion’s policy was unchanged and 
that "events in Africa have not 
in any way affected our negotiat- 
ing position over SALT." But he 
acknowledged that recent Soviet 
actions in Africa and elsewhere 
had " affected the general lone 
of U.S.-So"ict relations and the 
political climate io the United 
Stales." 

He said it was true that the 
Administration as part of the 
negotiating process, had made it 
clear to the Russians that it was 
now up to them to make conces- 
sions on the remaining obstacles 
in the way of a new strategic 
arms agreement. 

" It is important nor m confuse 
tough negotiating with some sort 


WASHINGTON, June 2. 

nf decision to freeze the talks or 
to slow down or to mark time.”! 
be said. 1 

Yet if some i*ch confusion 1 
now exists, Lhis must in part be 
tbe Administrations responsi- 
bility Last Sunday Dr. Brze- 
zinski came very close to malting 
a link between SALT and tbe 
Soviet and Cuban "adventurism" 
in Africa— in one of the toughest 
statements about U.S.-Soviet 
relations made in recent years. 

At this week’s NATO meeting 
Mr. Carter also used strong lan- 
guage lo warn the Soviet Union 
about its AFrican policy. 

Mr. Powell said, however, that 
this language did- not signify a 
real change in U S. policy, cer- 
tainly as regards the SALT talks. 
This, in turn, raises doubts about 
its real meaning and about the 
President's own attitude. 

In the face of these doubts, 
and in the ab:r-nce of any really 
agreed Administration policy, it 
might make soiie sense to "go 
slow” on SALT so that it does 
not become an issue in the mid- 
term elections. But any sugges- 
tion that this might be in j 
Administration minds was 
"flatly incorrtct " Mr. Powell] 
said. i 


Rothmans

!to extend 

i 

Canada 

links 

By Stuart Alexander 


ROTHMANS International, 
the UK tobacco group, is 
poised to take an 85.fi per cent 
stake In Rothmans of Pall Mall 
Canada, with which it is al- 
ready linked through the ex- 
tensive business interests of 
Dr. Anton Rupert, the South 
AFrican industrialist. 

Talks are still going on 
about the deal, thought to be 
north over £4Qm and could take 
some time lo complete. 

Rothmans International's 
wholly-owned West German 
subsidiary. Martin Brinkniann. 
would buy ail the issued share 
capital of a specially-formed 
Canadian company holding 85.6 
per cent or the Canadian Roth- 
mans. 

The shares are now held by 
Rupert interests, which also, 
own 43.77 per cent of the shares 
in Rothmans International. The 
acquisition would be for cash, 
with Brinkman n the chosen 
purchaser because or the 
strength of the Deutschmark. 

Brewers 

Rothmans of Pall Mall Can- 
ada is the second biggest 
manufacturer and distributor 
of tobacco products in Canada, 
.standing behind British .Ameri- 
can Tobacco, with 28 per cent 
of tbe cigarette market. 

It also owns 50.1 per cent of 
brewers Carling O’Keefe. Car- 
ling controls a major wine 
producer and has interests in 
oil and gas. It has about 5,000 
employees in Canada. 

fn the financial year to March 
31, 1978, it turned in net pro- 
fits. after ail extraordinary 
items, of Can.S24.47m (£l2m) 
on sales uf Can.$7S0nt. 

"The Canadian tobacco in- 
terests would be -a logical 
extension io the business of 
the Rothmans International 
gorup and operational advan- 
tages. particularly in terms of 
marketing, are envisaged,” 

Rothmans International said 
yesterday: "The interests in 
beer, wine, oil, and gas would 
represent for Rothmans Inter- 
national and Brinkmann a 
measure of beneficial diversifi- 
caffon." 

Interests 

The deal further tidies up 
the world-wide tobacco inter- 
ests of Rothmans and gites it 
operating subsidiaries in Hol- 
land, Germany. Australia, New 
Zealand and Malaysia, as well 
as Canada. 

Whilc it has increased sales 
In the UK. from just over 6 
per cent, to slightly under 11 
per cent of the market, domes- 
tic profits have always been 
thin. In contrast Us exports 
hate been very successful and 
the company is highly profit- 
able in the Middle East and the 
Wes l indies.

New surge in coffee prices 


Agonising 


BY RICHARD MOONEY 

COFFEE PRICES on tbe London 
Tutures market leapt nearly £200 
a tonne at one stage yesterday 
in response to news that there 
was frost in Parana, Brazil’s 
main coffee growing state, on 
Thursday night. 

It is believed no damage was 
done, but one London trader said 
it was " very, very frightening ” 
that there should be frost in 
Brazil's coffee area so early in 
the season. 

This is the fii>t frost since 
1975 to hit Brazil's coffee 
growers, who normally produce 
more than 30 per cent of the 
world crop. 

The 1975 Crnst was the worst 
on record, cutting the country's 
coffee output by three-quarters. 
Coffee traders have since been 
hyper-sensitive In the possibility 
of major frost damage. 

This week’s outbreak is the 
earliest frost in memory, and as 
surf? is hem” taken very 
seriously. It will be imd-Augusl 


before the 1979 crop can be 
considered safe.. 

Frost affects the flowers which 
should produce the following 
year's crop. In very bad cases 
it can destroy the trees This 
was the case in 1975 and tbe 
crop has still not fully recovered. 

It is not possible to estimate 
the rise in prices which a serious 
Brazilian frost would cause, but 
any significant advance could dn 
irreparable damage to the world 
coffee ruarkeL Conservative 
estimates put Ihe cut in con- 
sumption caused by the tenfold 
rise in raw coffee bean prices 
after the 1975 frost at 15 per 
cent. 

Some recovery has taken place 
as a result of the recent retail 
price fall but world consumption 
is still thought to be about 10 per 
cent, below pre-1975 levels. 

July delivery coffee on the 
London futures market reached 
£2.000 a tonne yesterday but

Japanese promise curb on cars 


BY OUR INDUSTRIAL AND FOREIGN STAFF 


JAPANESE car makers have 
promised their Government to 
tighten curbs on bbtptncoLs of 
cars and small commercial 
vehicles to the UK after a 
request from the Ministry 
of International Trade and 
Industry. 

The Ministry has asked the 
industry to take further restrain- 
ing measures because shipments 
during the first four months or 
the year have reached about 50 
per cent of last year's total, in 
spite of a pledge to the British 
Government that they will be 
kept to last year's level. Up to 
April they totalled 59.900 cars 
and 12,200 lorries. 

According to the Japanese 
Automobile Manufacturers Asso- 
ciation in Tokyo, the restraint i n 
exports will become more effec- 
tive later in the year. 

These developments come 


after yet another period of 
rapid export growth by the 
Japanese motor Industry, which 
pushed up overseas car sales by 
22 per cent, in tbe first three 
months of this year to 832,000 
vehicles. 

In the face of mounting inter- 
national anxiety about this rate 
of growth. Mr. Takashi Ishihara, 
president of Nissan, predicted 
yesterday that its worldwide 
vehicles exports would fall four 
per cent from the 430.000 units 
recorded in 19i j. 

He insisted that the company 
will not export more cars to 
Britain in 1978 than it did last 
year. 

Mr. Ishihara's statement con- 
flicts to some extent with sug- 
gestions in Britain that shipments 
from Nissan, which makes the 
Datsun ranee of cars, will be cut 
to about SO per cent of last year's 


level. Indeed, with a number of 
new Japanese companies coming 
into the UK market recently, it 
would seeiu that the larger 
groups will have to give up 
some of their quota of vehicles 
to allow the smaller companies 
sufficient stocks. 

Nissan's view r.r ihe overall 
downturn in its exports later this 
year seems to have been coloured 
by the depressing impact the 
revaluation of the yen has bad 
on sales in the L T .S. in addition, 
tbe Japanese ear market itself 
i$ improving, after a great deal 
of international pressure for 
stimulation of home demand. 

The Nissan president said that 
the company sold 121.422 Datsun 
passenger cars in the Lf.S in 
the first four months of this 
year, a negligible rise of 04 per 
cent over the same period in 


1977 "This is proof that our 
exports to the US. are not 
increasing." 

• Nissan is looking at sites 
for its first car manufacturing 
plant in the U.S. Mr. Ishihara 
said that a dozen Nissan officials! 
arc in Amurica for a survey 
which he called a forward step 
in Nissan's strategy to begin 
manufacturing in the U.S. 

Mr. Ishihara added that Nissan 
expects a 12 per cent boost in 1 
domestic car scales this year, lie 
predicted that on (he basis of 
this recovery in the home mar- 
ket .noticeable since March, the 
car company can hope to record 
gross sales of Y2.350bn in fiscal 

1978 and cam ordinary' income 
of YISSbn for the year, com- 
pared with Y2,24Bbn and Y138bn 
for the fiscal year ended last 
March and announced earlier 
this week.
