THE Labour Party asked tradt 
onions yesterday to contribute 
Elm towards Us cost during the 
forthcoming general election. 

Mr. Ron Hayward, general 
secretary, said after a meeting 
with union leaders in Brighton 
for the TUC that their 
response* was without 
parallel in his experience. " .VI! 
realised the seriousness of (he 
next general election," he said. 

The £tm that Labour is seek- 
ing is equivalent to two-thirds 
of the toial fee paid each year 
by the 58 affiliated unions. A 
written appeal will he going 
out next week. 

The only declared contribu- 
tions to the party so far are 
£100,000 each from the General 


and Municipal Workers and the 
National Union of Mlne- 
workera. 

The party Itself has already 
started spending on a poster

Portuguese 


faces key 
test in 
Assembly 

By Jimmy Burns in Lisbon 

TODAY. TEN days after his 
formal appointment as Portu- 
gal's new Prime Minister, 
exactly as the constitution 
demands, Sr Alfredo Nobre da 
Costa. a 55-year-old engineer. 
tviH presed his Government 
programme to Parliament. The 
263 delegates of the Portuguese 
Assembly of the Republic will 
then have tomorrow and the 
weekend for "reflection" before 
returning on Monday at the 
beginning of wbat promises to 
be a gruelling five-day debate. 

At the end of the debate, 
scheduled for late Friday night 
or early Saturday morning, any 
nf the major political parties 
is constitutionally allowed to 
present a motion of rejection 
on the Government pro- 
gramme. If the motion is 
carried bv over half of the 
delegates. Sr. da Costa and his 
team must resign. 

Latest Indications suggest that 
tfic Government's chances of 
survival in next week's crucial 
Parliamentary test are slim. 

Recently both the Socialists and 
the Centre Democrats CCDs) 
whose six-mo nth -old Govern- 
ment alliance collapsed at the 
end of July, declared Lbeir 
opposition both to the form 
and content of Sr da Costa's 
Government of "political 
independents and technocrats." 

The Socialists, who with 102 
seats in the assembly are 
Portugal's major parliamentary 
party, dissociated themselves 
front Sr da Costa when be was 
designated as Prime Minister 
by President Kanialho Eanes 
early last month. They claimed

and have been picked in return 
for a measure of stability in 
industry where the labour 
movement is largely Com- 
munist-dominated. 

Conservative concern at the 
“ red tinge " or key ministries 
lay behind the collapse of 
tbeir alliance with the 
Socialists in July. The CDs 
then wanted the sacking of 
Sr. Luis Sais. the Minister of 
Agriculture, who was accused 
of another “ secret ’’ deal with 
the Communists over agrarian 
reform. 

The Socialists (102 seals) and 
the CDs (41 seats) have it in 
their power to vole together on 
a motion or rejection and 
topple The Government. If 
their initial reactions to Sr 
da Cosla appear different and 
contradictory, they are linked 
by a third and most important 
factor which could force the 1 
two parties into an agreement 
against Sr. da Costa. 

Both Die Socialists and the CDs 
feel increasingly th3t the 
Portuguese parliamentary 
system is threatned by a 
formation of a Government 
that has no official links with 
the main political panics, but 
has simply ihe support of the 
President. 

Their apprehension has grown 
with the new administration's 
apparent intention to play 
much more than a transitional 
role.

politicians claim, the parties

Chancellor 
dismisses 
latest spy 
rumours 

By Jonathan Carr 

BONN, Sept. 6. 
CHANCELLOR Helmut 
Schmidt has dismissed allega- 
tions of a new West- 'German 
spying affair as a “giant air 
balloon ** sent . aloft * by - the 
political Opposition to damage 
the ruling Social Democrat 
Party (SPD). 

In his first public comment 
on' the affair, made at a pro- 
vincial election campaign rally, 
Herr Schmidt described as a 
“dirty invention” allegations 
made by some Opposition poli- 
ticians and newspapers about 
the SPD and Herr Egon Bahr, 
Its executive secretary. 

It has been alleged that a 
Romanian defector to the West 
passed on le the V£. informa- 
tion suggesting spying in the 
SPD’s ranks and the existence 
of a plan by Herr Bahr for 
West German withdrawal from 
NATO. 

Herr Schmidt said that when 
be met Mr. Walter Mandate, 
the UJS. Vice-President, In 
Rome recently, he was assured 
that Washington had been 
given no sucb indications from 
any source. 

Clean while, the Cabinet to- 
day postponed a decision on a 
request by the Federal Attor- 
ney's office to start legal pro- 
ceedings against -some jonrnal- 
ists in connection with the 
affair. More detail were asked 
for. 

It i$ suggested that some of 
the media made public details 
of the investigation into the 
spying affair in sucb a- way as 
to prejudice its outcome. 

Reuter reports from West 
Berlin: The city’s authorities 
flew 129 Pakistanis home to-

Opposition 
presses for 
broad 
amnesty 

By Our Own Correspondent 

MEXICO CITY. Sept. G. 

MEXICAN OPPOSITION par- 
ties arc Uicreaning thwr cam- 
paign to maki' sure that the 
promised amnesty announced 
by the President, Sr. Jusi< 
Lopez Portillo, last week, is as 
wide as possible. 

The President has said (hat 
an amnesty law will he sub- 
mitted to CflBRif.ss. in order 
to make' *■ social and polltiral 
peace" easier to achlric. But 
Ibe terms of the law are not 
yet known, other than that 
people imprisoned Tor politi- 
cal!^ -motivated crimes of 
violence arc unlikely to bene- 
fit. 

Another problem Is that the 
government line is that there 
are no people imprisoned in 
Mexico for their political 
beliefs, bat only political activ- 
ists. The Left-wing opposition, 
however, claims (hat there are 
several hundred political 
prisoners, in the generally 
accepted sense of the lerm, an 
estimated 3G7 people who have 
“ disappeared,** and SB political 
exiles. 

Sr. Hcbrrfo Castillo, the 
president of the Mexican 
Workers* Party, said In the 
magazine P nice so that police 
were a law onto themselves 
and Hut an end most be put tu 
their excesses. 

The most feared is the 
Brigarla Blanca (Ihe White 
Brigade), an anti-terrorlsi unit 
or the army whose activities 
are rarely dJscnssed. 

The last amnesty in Mexico 
was granted in 19715 hy the 
previous President, Sr. Luis 
Eckeve rria. This henetifiert 
about 300 people awaiting trial 
in connection with the con- 
frontation in - 19G8 bet u cell 
police and students which left 
300 dead- at the time of the 
Olympic Games. 

AP-DJ adds; Mexican retail 
prices in August rose hy I per 
cent above those of July. Uie

years- the economic vrov.th rale, 
which he npti(ii<»iicu!]y forecast 
at 5 ; per cent ifds year, is higher 
than the population growth rate, 
and Sr. Lone/ has some reason 
for expressing confidence. 


Eat set a!j tiis 3i'ainit “the 
grim picture of unemployment

rale of 3.5 per can: and with 
fewer than j) p-er cent uf the 
fi5m population controlling more 
than 70 per cent of ihe country’s 
wealth then the limns to opti- 
mism coin-* into relief. 

No wonder then that Sr. Lopez 
was at pains lo stress throughout 
tins speech that "we still have 

nut seen the improvement in the 
general characteristics of our 
economy reflected in real benefit 
to everyone.” He warned that 
unless this happened quickly, 
the majority of Mexicans would 
have uvery reason to feel 
defrauded. Th? main crisis now 
was social, he said. 

Sr. Lopez faces a herculean 
task, for even if the economy 
were to return to the target 
growth r^tc of 6 to 7 per cent, 
industry could still only provide 

150.000 new jobs a year, while 

800.000 jobs need to be created 
every year just to keep the 
unemployed rate from increasing. 

The President admitted that 
3m. dwellings need tu be built 
by lSSi! just to keep up with the 
population growth, but that only 
1.5m will in fact be built. 

How lo balance The social 
forces and keep production in- 
creasing — which in Turn means 
satisfying the very conservative 
business community — while 
keeping workers from becoming 
too disgruntled is an awesome 
task ip. Mexico. Wage invrea-es 
art- out of step with initiation. Last 
year the trade un.un chief Sr. 
Fidel Velazquez agreed to limit 
wage demands lo 10 per cent 
when inflation was double the 
current rate. Sr. Lopez says that 
the time has come to reward 
workers for their sacrifices but 
how remains to be seen. 

Sr. Lopez shotcs every sign of 
being aware of the problems but 
their size, especially ip. popula- 
tion growth and unemployment, 
make anything he achieves seem 
slight. For example, according 
to official figures l.OW people a 


day arc arriving in Mexico City,’ 
whose population is 13m, from 
outside. 

It is costing the Government 
this year more than $!30m just 
to maintain the price of milk and

Sr. Jose Lopez Portillo — 
after an economic crisis, Uie

cost of Government subsidies to 
hold down price increases is 
5321m. 

• 

Oil is seen as the country's 
salvation and here there appears 
to be u glut. Sr. Lopez once .-aid 
thin "this opnrtunity ltd get oih 
will only crime once in history. 
We have to Transform a non- 
renewable resource into -i 
permanent source of wealth." 
Peraex, the State-owned oil com- 
pany. is certainly getting at it 
quickly but many people are 
sceptical of the Governments 
(understandable) optimism that 
oil will be a panacea for many 
national problems. 

Sr Lopez warns that the 


country must be “ careful ” how 
the oil is used. Clearly it can 
be used as a bargaining counter 
with i.i tlier countries, particu- 
larly the U.S. The idea is to 
export and generate foreign 
exchange earnings, tn reduce 
the huge current account de- 
ficit, and also to boost related 
industries like petrochemicals 
and expand capital intensive 
sectors such as steel. 

The transition to a more 
industrialised society which the 
nil should bring, will inevitably 
mean greater social and political 

tensions. 

Sr Lupez has foreseen this 
and made special' mention of 
political reforms in his speech.

deputies also sit in ihe chamber 
through a stem of minority 
representation. 

The President intends to open 
iiu ihe tnssilibcd political system. 
Next year during the con- 
gressional elect ions the size of 
the chamber will increase in 300 
members elected directly and 300

banned for 40 years, will take

a " cr.sis of conscience ’’ after 
the 19*5$ confrontation between 
atudems protesting at social 
injustice and police which left 
300 dead. Now, says the Presi-

open £144m 
chemical 
plant 

By Quentin Peel 

JOHANNESBURG, Sepl- . 

A NEW South African chemi- 
cal plant the R23«m t£l« m » 
Coalplex scheme at Sasolhurp, 
was formally opened today »>' 
Mr. Chris Hennls, Minister ot 
Economic Affairs. , 

The plant produces PVC and 
other by-products Including 
caustic soda and chlorine, 
from coaL Mr. Hennis PJ®* 
dieted that it would eventual 1 ? 
save the South African 
economy some R60m i£40m) 
in import replacements. 

Coalplex, which is 60 
cent owned by AECI (itself 40 
per cent owned by Britain s 
I Cl) and 40 per cent by 
Sentrachem, is sited beside 
the original Sasol oil-f rom- 
eoal plant at Sasolburg, from 
which it gets, its ethylene 
supplies. The plant has been 
in operation since the last 
quarter of 1977. At full capa- 
city, it will employ some 1,«°° 
people. 

Outpnt of the plant is pnt 
at 100,000 tonnes of PVC a 
year, of which' more than 

40.000 tonnes will be exported. 
Coalplex Is currently tender- 
ing for an Iranian order for 

90.000 tonnes. 

Mr. Hendrik Smlt. chairman 
of Sentrachem, said that 
although export orders bad 
already been obtained for the 
fall production capacity of one 
carbide furnace, a second 
furnace could be commissioned 

if the Government would pro- 
vide better export allowances. 

The Sooth African Govern- 
ment played ah important part 
In persuading the two South 
African chemical -giants to join 
force* for the Coalplex project,

chairman of AECL earlier des- 
cribed as of . great economic

Indian state 
asks for flood 
assistance 

NEW DELHI, Sept 6. 

THE DEVASTATING Indian 
floods now stretch In an almost 
continuous r belt from Delhi, 
along the. mighty .Ganges river, 
tbrtfugh ilfe of Uttar 

Pradesh and Bihar and down 
ihtp- West 'Bengal and Orissa, 
according to latest reports. 

- Total crop loss and cost of 
reconstruction in hundreds of 
villages where thousands of 
mod^hd-straw huts have dis- 
. solved in the flood wafers vriff. 

- ran into hundreds oTrmiUlons 
iff dollars. * 

The Uttar -Pradesh . Chief 
Minister, Blr. Bam Narcsh 
Yadav today asked the central 
government for a grant of 
2,500m rupees ($3 10 m) for re- 
lief work. In adition to the 
15.000 tonnes- of wheat already 
made available for free distri- 
bution, at least 20,000 tonnes 
more were required, he said. 

So far 498 people have died 
in the Uttar Pradesh floods, 
281 In Himchal Pradesh, 181 
in Bihar and at least 200 more 
in Delhi, Rajastan, Haryana, 
Punjab and Kashmir, accord- 
ing to official figures. 

When the flood waters re- 
cede, both the death toll and 
damage estimates In . West 
Bengal could exceed all these 
figures. . Correspondents visit- 
ing the Midnapore district, 
west of Calcutta, reported that 
several hundred people have 
died and scores of villages 
hare disappeared. 

The West Bengal Govern- 
ment has so far confirmed, only 
50 deaths. But Indian stale 
governments are often anxious 
to play down casualties in 
major natural disasters, and 
it is believed in Calcutta that 
this may be the case in- West 
Bengal. 

The slate’s fear allega- 
tions of negligence from their 
political opponents or charges 
that they failed to give suffi- 
cient warning to endangered 
populations. The Andhra 
Pradesh disaster last year 
became a political issue, with 
the central and stale govern- 
ments trading charges while 
little was done to help re- 
habilitate the sun h ors. It was

GEC problems 
in Taiwan 

By Lynton McLain 
TEETHING troubles with trains 
supplied by GEC Transportation 
Projects to Taiwan may lead to 
payments being suspended until 
the problems ate rectified, the 
Taiwan central news agency said 
yesterday. 

GEC Transportation Projects 
was appointed as project manger 
for the electrification of the 
450km west coast railway line in 
1974, in an £S0m contract The 
overhead power tines and tele- 
comm uni cations equipment sup- 
plied by GEC companies were 
installed satisfactorily earlier 
this year and the project was 
said to be on schedule. 

But only 20 days after the 
multiple-car units entered 
service, the shock absorbers were 
found to be rubbing with the 
gear boxes. This could have 
caused nrishaps at high speed 
the Taiwan railway company was 
reported to have said. 

GEC said the repaired trains 
would be back in service next

Ho said that the cash would go 
to 29 districts mast in need of 
being spruct'd up. The scheme 
will consist of a range of small 
projects which can be carried out 
quickly. 

" The kind of tbrag 1 have tn

tion has failed to agree on a date. 

One" possible reason for the 
delay is that the Japanese want 
to keep tlieir options open until 


it is clear whether there will be 
a General Election this autumn; 

.Bui, {here are fears among 
British manufacturer*, v.-j-.u want

The eon* of the Uo.iln; ease 
is that their- voluntary restraint, 
designed to give EL dr*, a.

British company at all. IristiMil.

off-peak tariff: how it works, and how

Economy Seven is a completely new off- 
peak tariff for electric storage heating and 
water heating. 

It gives you seven hours of nigh toff-peak 
electricity at just over a penny a unit. That's 
a-lower rate than any other domestic tariff. 

So if you already have electric storage - 
heating and/or water heating, on a tariff 
that gives you off-peak electricity at night 
only, without a daytime boost.it could pay 
-you to switch to Economy Seven right away.

And that’s only the start of Economy 
Seven's economies. 

During off-peak hours. Economy Seven 
means lower running costs for everything 
electric in yourhome, for example your 
fridge and freezer which continue to 
operate during the night. 

Economy Seven marks an important 
new step towards more stable prices for 
electricity. 

. It ? s the result of improved efficiency in 
the operation of Britain's big modern, 
power stations, and of the steadily 
increasing development of nuclear power.

/Electricity Board will be pleased to advise 
on how you too might get benefit from 
Economy Seven. 

- .And if you’re planning to start electric 
central heating, then Economy Seven will 
give you ycur off-peak units atthe lowest 
possible rate.

THE TL'C -conferencc carried 
three major economic and pay 
motions yesterday which made 
dear to the Government that 
there would be no farther 
overall co-ojteration ljt a rigid 
pay policy and that the TUC 
would firmly oppose any 
Government attempts to inter* 
fere with. .wage bargaining 
under Phase Four of Its anti- 
luDatlon policy. 

In ramptKite motion 18. 
Congress pledged itself to 


placing Its "part "ft pursuing 
policies alnidl it reducing

Priorities Included nego-

UNIONS should not be 
impeded in their efforts to 
achieve a .shorter working week 
by the Government's pay policy. 
Mr. * Moss Evans, general 
secretary of the Transport and 
General Workers' Union, told 
Uongre«s. 

Mr. Evans was moving a com- 
posite motion demanding a major 
reduction in working hours to 
help overcome continued high 
uaeinpUi.wr.eni. Many delegates, 
be sjitl. remembered what mass 
unemployment meant before the 
war; Social security might have 
taken the sting out uf unemploy- 
ment today but there remained 
no really adequate compensation 
for being without a job. 

Between now and 19S1, another 

900.000 wnrkers would come onto 
the labour market at a time 
when there were fewer and 
fewer job opportunities. He was 
confident that a reduction in the 
working week would be a major 
way in which to create jobs. 

Mr. Evans suggested that full 
achievomcnt of the 35-hour week 
could create up to 750,000 jobs, 

200.000 of them m the public 
seei or. 

The trade union movement 
must make n clear that 
mitionaity determined pay levels 
could impede moves to create 
jobs through the . shorter 
working week. He regretted the 
negative attitude or the Govern- 
ment's White Paper on pay policy 
for the coming year. 

"The Government must con- 
tinue tu be made aware of our 
determination to bargain for the 
shorter working week without 
being impeded by the a per cent 
pay policy." 

An effective attack on low pay 
in the public .services must be 
made this year, declared Mr. 
Alan Fisher, general secretary of 
the National Union or Public 
Employees.

'THE Caterpillar Tractor Com-

was under police guard last night 
after violent picketing yesterday 
by .tonie of Its 1,700 manual work 
force, which is «m strike. 

Most of the strikers, who 
walked nut on Tuesday after the 
breakdown of annual pay talks, 
are expected io picket the plant 
this morning. 

Yesterday,'- only a handful iff 
senior management executives 
managed, with police aid. to gel 
through n line uf about 200 men. 
Some 800 other staff and super- 
visors were turned back despite 
the - police presence, and had to 
return home. 1 

The dispute is over the men’* 
claim for a 10 per cent rise and a 
productivity deal. After four 
months' negotiations, the com- 
pany's final offor comprised a 9j 
-per cenl rise together with an

motion urging the adoption by 
the Government of an economic 
strategy providing for increased 
public ownership and enierpriM-. 
public supervision of investment 
and the development of new 
systems uf planning. 

The first priority, said Mr 
Fisher, must be to attack low- 
pay. His union had decided to 
press fur a £60 minimum wage. 

“The employers will not like 
it and 1 don't suppose the 
Government is going to like ir 
but this year we have said we 
must make an effective attack on 
low pay in the public services." 

Mr. Roy Grantham, general 
secretary of the Association of 
Professional Executive Clerical 
and Computer Staff, warned trade 
unionists against the danger of 
taking for granted a close rela- 
tionship with the Government. 

He applauded the Labour Gov- 
ernment's achievements in 


cutting in da tion and urged 
delegates to heed the dangers 
that lay ahead 

Trade unionists needed-lo work 
with the Government, with joint 
acceptance of the peed for 
recognition of the problems of 
differentials and of the low-paid. 

Mr. Geoffrey Drain, general 
secretary uf the National and 
Local Government Officers 
Association said that in tackling 
unemployment there were three 
main routes. 

The first was the operation of 
greater work sharing through 
the organisation of overtime and 
the introduction of earlier retire- 
ment. 

He regretted the Government's 
insistence that agree menls with 
employers on a 35-hour week 
should ho ensted in the overall 
pay package.

CONGRESS gave the minimum

motion expressing “ gravest 
concern " at the Chrysler Cor- 
poration’s agreement to sell its 
European operation to 
Peugeot- Cltreon without con- 
sulting the British Govern- 
ment. 

The motion demanded the 
firmest guarantees on Jobs as 
a condition of any take-over. 
Congress also called on the 
Government to urgently draw 
up an overall strategy for the 
entire British motor industry. 

Mr. Gavin Laird, moving the 
motion for the Amalgamated 
Union of Engineering Workers, 
said Chryslcr’s conduct ranked 
among Ibe worst examples of 
autl-soctal and anti-trade onion 
behaviour. 

Among the guarantees the 
union* would be seeking would 
be a new planning agreement, 
a commitment to honour a new 
model programme and Govern- 
ment imolvemeot in Pengeol- 
Citrcon through cash equity.

The British unions would 
not be prepared to tolerate 
“ Semi-Fascist " company 
unions lhat existed In Peugeot-

Mr. Grenville Hawley said on 
behalf of the Transport and 
General Workers’ Union that 
Ihe British Gu\«>rnmi*ul bud 
been “ exploited " hy the 
Chrysler Corporation. The com- 
pany had obtained up to £165m

improving Ihe saleability of 
Chrysler UK or had been 
retained in the United Stales. 

Mr. Doug Hoyle. SIP, presi- 
dent of (be Association of 
Scientific Technical and Man- 
agerial Staffs, urged the British 
Government not to be 
stampeded into making a 
hurried decision on the 
Peugeot - Citroen offer. If 
Ley land and Chrysler were to 
merge BL would be able to stay 
in the big league. This was one 
of the alternatives to be 
considered. 

Demand 
for unions 


CONGRESS called for the 
Government to prepare a White 
Paper proposing decasualisation 
of the building industry. 

Mr. Frank Chappie, general 
secretary of the Electrical and 
Plumbing Trades Union and a 
member of the TUC Construc- 
tion Industry Committee, said 
that the voluntary registration 
agreed between employers and 
unions, announced by the 
Government on August 1 must 
be made to work. That did not 
mean, however, that the union 
accepted that there should not 
be a statutory registration 
scheme. 

Mr. Les Wood, assistant 
general secretary of .the Union 
of Construction and Allied 
Trades, proposing a motion on 
decasualisation and supporting 
direct labour in the industry, 
said that a compulsory register 
with statutory hacking was the 
first major requirement. 

It could pave ihe way to 
proper manpower planning, and 
would be the springboard from 
which trade uniun demamls- 
cnuld be met for full buck-pay 
during periods of unemploy- 
ment redundancy pay on the 
basis of service to the industry 
rather than to a particular em- 
ployer. and an industry- based 
pension scheme. 

Construction workers in an 
industry with no job security. 


“atrocious" working conditions, 
“appalling” safety standards, 
and very little chance of redun- 
dancy pay were now well behind 
workers in any other indnstry.- 

Decasua lisa tion in Direct 
Labour Organisation (DLCD, 
accountable to local electorates, 
was reflected in a high level pf 
unionisation and extensive joipt 
regulation of working conditions. 
Mr. Bill Rankin, deputy general 
secretary of the National and. 
Local Government Association, 
said. 

“The public must be made 
aware of the great advantages bf 
direct labour and not be 
deceived by the propaganda of 
the free enterprise lobby. 

“The defence of existirig 
direct labour departments in the 
face of these politically 
motivated attacks Is very impor- 
tant boita to preserve jobs aqd 
to prevent the destruction of 
valuable local authoritv assets.!" 

DLOs made far better provi- 
sion than most private contrac- 
tors for pensions, holiday pay, 
sick pay. and welfare facilities. 
The best DLOs produced work 
which was cheaper, done more 
quickly, and to a higher standard 
than private contractors. 

In future. DLOs should be 
allowed to compete for the work 
of other public hodies in their 
area, and eventually to compete 
for any construction work in the 
area. 1

angry complaint 


on rigs 


THE MAJORITY of workers 
applying for jobs hooking up 
oil rigs In the North -Sea were 
frightened to disclose their 
trade union membership, said 
Mr. John -Baldwin, general 
secretary of the Construction 
Section of the Amalgamated 
Union of Engineering Workers. 

Ministers and trade unionists 
were always looking to the 
reicque from North Sea oil to 
help Britain's economic re* 
coiery, but there were \ery- 
srrious problems 

Rigs constructed on shore 
were subject to the national 
agreements of the construction 
industry and work was carried 
out bv union labour. A number 
of the companies hooking up 
rigs in the North Sea also 
employed credited trade union 
members. Ru< many were using 
non-uuioii labour 

Today’s agenda 

TODAY'S BUSINESS will con- 
centrate on international 
issues, including the problents 
of Northern Ireland and Gbile. 
Several education motions are 
scheduled for debate, with 
further discussion expected on 
youth unemployment. Another

media censorship. 


THE TUC Finance and General 
Purposes Committee was 
criticised for its refusal to 
hack the. firemen in their 
strike against the Govern- 
nionl’s Phase Three 10 per 
cent pay policy last year. 

Mr Wiir Barber, president of 
the Fire Brigades' Union, said 
that the decision by the com- 
mit lec. which, though very 
close, was far from unanimous, 
bad not been received kindly 

- by his members. 

He thanked the trade unions for 
their support in the strike. 
More than £}ui was given to 
the union's strike hardship 
fund, all of which had gone to 
members. 

More research 
funds wanted 

THE CONFERENCE called on 
the Government tu increase 
substantially investment in 
basic and applied civil research 
as a contribution to the 
country's technological and 
economic recovery. 

Mr. AJex Pritchard, of the Asso- 
ciation of University Teachers, 
said that Britain was in the 
Cinderella category in civil 
research, when compared to 
European competitors. In 1975 
the UK. spent 21 Eurodollars 
per person on civil research 
and development. West 
Germany spent three times, 
that amount, and France. 

. Holland. Belgium and Denmark 
doubled it.

PATENTS HAVE been obtained 
on an automatic electrostatic 
powder coating . system which 
can provide efficiencies, as high 
as 9S per cent, which, according 
to Volstatie. compares with 
typical run-of-the-mill efficiencies 
around 50 per cent. 

Thought to be tbe first sucb 
process to reach these levels of 
materials economy, it offers the 
further benefit that productivity 
is unproved through a consider- 
able speed-up in tbe conveyor 
unit carrying the workpieces. At 
the same time, the laborious 
task of cleaning cult he coating 
booth for a change of colour 
is made much easier, while 
powder recycling is virtually 
eliminated. 

Supercoater is tbe name which 
has been chosen for the equip- 
ment. which is relatively simple 
to tailor to user requirements. 

Basic equipment is the booth, 
fitted- on both sides with high 
voltage booster electrodes 
mounted alongside the conven- 
tional reciprocating powder guns. 

These electrodes recharge all 
the powder particles that have 
lost their initial charge from the 
guns and thus have failed to 
reach the workpieces travelling 
through tbe enclosure. In this 
way. any overspray powder is 


continually recharged till it is 
actually captured by a work- 
piece. 

Experimental work baa also led 
to modifications to the air flow 
arrangements and is in the 
opposite direction to the move- 
ment of the work, giving more 
uniform powder distribution and 
better coverage. An aerofoil and 
air curtain are used to levitate 
and recirculate uncharged 
powder lying on tbe base of the 
booth — in this instance a con- 
tinuous plastics belt moving jn 
the same direction as the con- 
veyor. away from the air extrac- 
tion port. 

Sides and top of the booth are 
made of a plastic material which 
assumes a -charge of the same 
polarity as the resin panicles 
and repels them back Into the air 
stream and towards the com- 
ponents being treated, again con- 
tributing to efficiency and help- 
ing where colour changes are 
frequent. 

Steady air transfer back 
through the booth is maintained 
by a cyclone powder reclamation 
unit to which after-filters can 
be attached, if desired, and fitted 
with shakers to give close on 100 
per cent powder utilisation. 
Volstatie points but that this 
underlines one advantage of 


powder spraying, over con- 
ventional wet paint spray systems 
in that oversprayed paint- 
expensive commodity— -cannot be 
reclaimed. 

Super coatere have very little 
overspray powder to recirculate 
and it is sometimes possible id 
dispense with the reclamation 
system altogether, providing 
considerable saving ha space and 
in capital outlay. Otherwise, it is 
possible to downrate the 
reclamation system. . . 

When there is no -reclamation 
unit, colour changes: -are very 
quick to achieve, faking about 
seven minutes under itypieal pro- 
duction conditions.. AH that is 
needed is to clean out the booth 
recharge the powder- supply con 
tainer and purge the-guns. 

Developers point' out that a 
single installation could be used 
to replace a series of mobile 
booths, each devoted to one 
colour, with considerable .advan 
lages to the user. 

They claim a noteworthy in- 
crease in consistency of finish 
particularly -important where 
textures or hammer-type sur 
faces are desired. . . r ''

UNDER-DEVELOPED countries 
are always concerned about 
future supplies of coal and oil 
fuels and their effect on the 
countries' balance of payments. 
Now. it appears, they are showing 
particular interest in the use of 
waste materials as a source of 
fuel. 

A range of plant available for 
conversion of agricultural and 
forest waste into carbon fuel has 
heen introduced by Alfred 
Process Plant Oakwood Chemical 
Works. Sandy Lane. Worksop, 
Notts SS0 3EY (0909 68611. 

Charcoal, says the company, 
ranks as one of the most ancient 
products made by man. yet today 
many people are totally unaware 
of the wide variety or its uses 
or its great economic potential. 
Many manufacturing processes 
rely on this material in its 
various forms and new methods

of use constantly appear. 

The material has an important 
economic position in certain 
parts of the world because it may 
now be made from certain items 
which hitherto were dismissed as 
waste. 

High quality charcoal can be 
made — without the need for high 
level technology — to provide an 
ideal fuel for domestic and 
industrial purposes from such 
substances like groundnut husks, 
sawdust and shavings, forestry 
and sawmill wastes, coconut 
husks, etc. — 

Of three different types of 
charcoal manufacturing plants 
now available, the first in the 
range is a portable batch kiln, 
intended for use in the forest 
environment or on a village 
industry' basis. 

The second is the vertical 
continuous kiln designed for 


Expansion by Charmilles 


FIRST TWO models jo a new 
series of generators for spark 
erosion machines has been 
announced by Charmilles (UKi 
These generators have been de- 
veloped at the company's 
Gloucester factory and 50 and 
100-amp versions are now in 
production and will he widely 
available early next year. They 
are designed to complement the 
Cba nn i lies Eleroda range of 
spark erosion machines. 

About 25 per cent of the total 
development cqst has been pro- 
vided by a grant from tbe De- 
partment of Industry. Totai 
outlay has been in the region 
of £200,000. 

Tbe company has also 
announced plans to double the 
output of its Gloucester factory 
where it manufactures spark 
erosion machines for home and 
overseas markets. 

Us British factory, which bas 
been in existence for five years 
is the only major manufacturing 
centre for the Swiss based group 
outside Geneva. 

Future proposals include the 
introduction of a more. advanced 
computer control system io 
streamline work progress, stock 
control and delivery scheduling. 

Tbe Gloucester factory is now 
also assuming responsibility 
within tbe Charmilles Group for 
all special machine develop- 
ments. This includes modifica- 
tions and adaptations to 
equipment for special require- 
ments. 

Considerable potential for 

production work using spark 
erosion, both die sinking and 
wire machining, is seen by the 
company for tbe future. 


Another recent move has been 
the purchase of a controlling 
stake lu the Andrew Engineer- 
ing Company of Minneapolis, 
Minnesota by the Charmilles 
Group. This acquisitiaa win 
broaden the range of spark 
erosion, machines marketed. 

The latest type of machines 
from the Andrew range will be 
added to the products marketed 
by Charmilles cUK) and It is 
expected that these will become 
available next year.

mill offeuts. forest thinnings, 
waste woods and similar 
materials. The pyrolysis gases 
are controlled and used to pro- 
vide heal to maintain kiln 
temperatures whilst controlling 
pollution. 

The third unit is the horizontal 
continuous kiln developed 
recently to use a wide range of 
agricultural and sawmill wastes. 
Nut shells, rice husk, sawdust 
sharings, coffee husk, sunflower 
seed husk may also be converted 
by this moving bed unit. This 
horizontal unit claims the -com- 
pany. represents a groat step 
forward in the use of alternative 
materials in energy production. 

Apart from its use for domestic 
and industrial purposes, the 
untilisation of charcoal is grow- 
ing in the metal industries, in 
copper,, iron and steel, in 
ceramic production, steam rais- 
ing and producer gas. and said to 
be particularly important where 
special atmospheres are needed- 

In time and cement manufac- 
ture. charcoal is used as an 
internal fuel, being mixed with 
the limestone and fired to obtain 
quicklime. 

As a pulverised fuel, charcoal 
powder .may be used instead of 
coal in pulverised fuel firing for 
steam raising and power genera- 
tion. It is easily ground to a 
fine powder and able lo he used 
with standard pulverised fuel 
firing equipment.

‘ search bv Wood, Brigdale and 

. Co. earlier this summer which 

SA300 


appears fn have laid bare an 
extraordinary state of affairs 
among Britain's top marketeer*. 
.Wood. Bngdale polled 30 
marketing professionals in htue 
chip companies in a bid tn riis> 
ittver What they thought about 
thu role and effectiveness of the 
near*£2bn advertising business. 
The results read like an exer- 
cise m grievous bodily harm. 

Only five of the 30 ronxidered 
advertising to he vital to market- 
ing. Virtually four-fifths thought 

that advertising’s key function 
was to accomplish task* other 
than selling. Only three listed 
" value for money " as the most 
important quality they looked 
for in an agency's advertising. 
As for the notion of advertising 
creativity, it was assessed as a 
central criterion iD judging 
agencies, though few could agree 
on what creativity meant. Only 
one thought It meant advertising 
that 1 sells. Sewn thought it 
meant producing a " novel 
approach " and two that it meant 
original art direction or cupy- 
writing. The most agreed des- 
cription was “ an ability to pro- 
duce memorahle " advertising, 
though again, none could agree 
on -what that was. 

- This confusion, it seemed, 
stemmed from an apparent 
belief among marketing pro- 
fessionals that advertising was 
responsible chiefly for producing 
images and memories and 
associations rather than a 
concrete payout of sales. 

Docs it matter? According to 
Jeremy Bullraore: “It seems to 
me that it matters a great deal if 
advertising is thought to have no 
commercial effect because if it 
doesn't, then what the belt is 
anybody spending any money on 
it for? Its effect can be very 
direct, like selling off tbe page. 
It can well be long-term. The 
fad that it becomes increasingly 
difficult to measure aver e period 
oF time doesn't mean that you 
shouldn't continue to think of 
advertising as an- investment 
just as any other kind of invest-

there is indeed an increasing 
belief that what they are looking

for te ‘memorable’ advertising. 
Forty-two per cent of Wood. Brig- 
dale’s respondents said creativity 
meant tbe ability to produce 
memorable advertising. As I 
understand it. they were given 
the opportunity to follow that up 
by saying that by memorable 
advertising they mean advertis- 
ing that would sooner or later 
have some effect on their com- 
panies’ sales and profits But they 
didn't. They slopped dead " 

But why should advertising's 
role still nor be understood: why, 
In some quarters, should it 
apparently sustain a reputation 
as a frivolous adjunct of the 
business process? 

“1 believe the main reason is 
tha^,a lot of the valuable effect 
nf advertising is, in the short 
term; not measurable, whereas 
cutting prices to the trade 
or ffitting 5p coupons around 
cap Sbe measured very quickly. 
It has .always been extra- 
ordinarily - difficult, and will 
continue to be very difficult, to 
quantify the effect of long-term 
advertising. particularly on 
repeat purchase goods with high 
distribution and reasonably high 
market share. \ 

" Another reason - comes back 
to the definition •. of sales 
Advertising and bran d\m ana ger*’ 
targets have for a very long time 
been set in terms of brand share 


or volume sales not profits, and 
if vtiuVe sol a fairly short-terra 
new of life and your objectives 
are set in terms of volume or 
share, there is no question that 
in many i os lances there is a 
quicker way of proving yourself 
to be successful than by spend- 
ing money on consumer 
advertising. 

“Advertising is not alone in 
this. R and D spending, train- 
ing programmes, management 
development, painting the fac- 
tory. labour relations, the office 
party — all these things are sup- 
posed to be of long-term value 
but tend to be seen as very nice 
to do at the end of the year if 
you have some spare cash left 
over. 

“Let me make a point that 
particularly over the last 20 or 
30 years has become forgotten. 
You can demonstrate, almost 
beyond doubt that the familiar 
is more valuable tban the un- 
familiar, that there is a value 
in a famous brand, a famous 
person. The very act of advertis- 
ing adds a value to a product. 
First. -it creates a value and a 
familiarity and a sense of safety 
in the mind of the consumer. 
Second. 2 nd no less important, 
it puts a very considerable obli- 
gation on the advertiser to see 
thai he lives up to the promises 
he is making. Branding and 


advertising make it quite clear 
that the manufacturer is pre- 
pared to be accountable. I think 
we have forgotten about that 
because it ha< been taken so 
much fop granted. 

“Forget about content for the 
moment: creativity on tbe whole 
is about content, it is difficult 
to put numbers to it. but It does 
seem to me that you could argue 
that 75 per cent of the value nf 
advertising is to advertise at ail. 
irerspective of content, whereas 
over the last 20 years, all the 
argument, alt the discussion 
about advertising between 
agencies and sophisticated 
marketing companies lias been 
about the 25 per cent oF content. 
This may be one of the many 
reasons why advertising expendi- 
ture in real terms has declined, 
because nobody has dared to 
stand up and tell advertisers that 
they aren’t spending enough. 

“Tf you go hack to the 
beginnings of advertising, the 
manufacturer or the retailer 
simoly pul up a sign with his 
name on it. Nobody got in a 
twitch whether is was creative or 
not. You were making a public 
sraiement and commitment t 
don't think that element of 
advertising has been stressed by 
anybody for years. 

“One has heard many times 
.that advertising has put to zrorfe 
harder this year. 1 have never 
been told that advertising has to 
work less hard this year than it 
did before, it's a ludicrous 
statement, and ail the emphasis 
is going on content rather than 
on advertising weight because it 
is on content that agencies com- 
pete. 

“ One comes back to the effect 
of the emergence of this word 
creativity and the almost total 
inability" of anybody to define 
what they mean by it other than 
judging advertisements as if they 
were ends in themselves rather 
than a means to an end. I define 
creativity in this context as an 
ability so to understand the com- 
munications process that that 
which you are wishing to com- 
municate to the people most 
likely to be interested m your 
brand or your service nr your 
machine tonl is most quickly and 
persuasively, mosl accurately and 
economically, understood. Adver- 
tising must work. It is not an 
end in itself. 

“That is why I am appalled 
that the ability to produce 
•memorable* advertising should 
be seen by 42 per cent of re- 
spondents in this research as 
advertising’s most important 
function. Nobody in the world 
has eveT demonstrated a relation- 
ship between memorability and 
effectiveness, though there may 
well be a relationship between 
effectiveness and memorability. 

“Creativeness, to me. means 
getting people to understand 
what it is there might be in it 
for them if they buy or stay 
with nr contemplale doing what 
the advertiser wants them to do. 

"As with any piece of research, 
one has to read this report at 
two levels. It is possible that 
there is in some of these res- 


ponses an element of self-justi- 
fixation for not having spent 
enough money on advertising: • 
over the past few years, hut it, 7- 
came at an uncanny moment 
when we in this agency were ; 
getting increasingly angry about j7 • 
advertisers’ attitudes to the 
investment value or advertising, , 
and the way that advertisements 
wore being evaluated both by .. 
agencips, including people within 
tiur own agency, and by . 

advertisers. 

"if you follow that line of ■> 
thought, people say you mean ■ 
you are against awards. I am 
not against awards. 1 am only 
against awards if they become 
the only criterion against which • 
advertising and advertisements 
are measured They do a lot of 
good In trying to get people to 
find original solutions to com- 
monplace problems. 

" Increasingly it has seemed to ■ 
me that advertising is being 
evaluated now on a non -f uric- ■ 
iiona.1 basis. This report summed 
up uur sense of frustration that 
something was fundamentally - 
wrong. Recently an agency took 
a double-page ad saying it had 
won a couple of awards at 
Cannes and that if you wanted 
to win an award, ring the 
managing director. It was a 
good agency, but it is at that .. 
point that I began to think the *' 
whole world's gone mad. The 
presumption behind that ad was v 
that somebody was going to 
spend their shareholders' money 
with the primary aim of winning 
a Cold Lion from the jury in 
Cannes. It was evidence that 
what we suspected was true. 

" There is a danger that 
people writing advertisements . 
will consciously or unconsciously 
set the winning of an award as 
their aim when they set out to 
write an a<L There is a precise • 
parallel in American advertising 
where day-after recall rules. •• 
Consciously or unconsciously, 
creative people are now trying • 
to write commercials that get a 
good day-after recall score, des- . 
pite the fact that no-one has 
demonstrated a correlation ■ 
between day-after recall and 
effectiveness. I am nnt saying • 
that the best creative agencies 
have forgotten what they are in 
business for, but that it looks 
as though some people who are ‘ 
spending the money have for- 
gotten what they are spending 
it for. 

“I am not saying that all 
advertising works in the sense 
of increased margins or volume 
sales, because that is by defini- 
tion impossible. Nor am 1 say- 
inj 2 that every time we advertise 
a brand we increase its profit- 
ability or brand share or both. 

All T am saying is that that 
should be the only criterion 
against which advertising is : 
judged. 

“This is not an anti-creativity 
campaign. It is a let-us-for- 
Christ-sake understand what we 
mean by creativity campaign. 

Let us remind ourselves what 
advertising is there for in the 
first place. Tt appears it is being

The most important aspect 
of a company is usually the 
mostn * ' * 



And that is internal 
communications. 

Whether it’s a new develop- 
ment in company strategy, the 
launch of a new product or 
the opening of a canteen, the 
employees are, inevitably, the 
last to find out 

Then you get misunder- 
sta ndi ng, someti mes 
resentment which reflects itself 
in their work. And in your 
balance sheet 


Howmuch does it cost to 
give employees an interest in 
their company? 

Initially,justaphone call. 

To Air-time Productions.

About howwe even assist in the

We will also tell you about

For most men of substance, the thought 
of owning a farm or country estate is an . 
attractive proposition. 

It can also make very good financial 
sense, as any professional adviser will 
confirm. 

Savills have an excellent track record in 
finding farms for private buyers, and in 
providing a full management service. 

People are sometimes put off by the 
thought that they know nothing of 
farming, forestry or agricultural finance. 

Never mind. Savills can take care of it all 
for you,- while you drive up to townfor your- 


f/ 


/ • own kind of working day. 

We prepare farm budgets, 
employ and supervise staff 
and provide a full farm accounts 
_ arvice from our local office. 

Stuck in the sticks? 

Not at all. Fine farms within easy 
commuting distance of London regularly 
change hands. And if you’re careful to pick 
the right one, you can successfully enjoy 
the best of both town and country worlds. 


As well as doing your financial best for 
your family and yourself. 

First steps to the country life 

In our London office we have qualified 
agricultural surveyors, who know a great 
deal about land and about the many farms 
within daily travelling distance of London - 
and further afield as well. 

You’ll find sound advice on every aspect 
of farm purchase, finance and management.

and Guy Galbraith.

CHINA HAS overcome its 
qualms concerning the re intro- 
duction of material incentives to 
increase industrial production. 

Hie " idea of ' production 
bonuses is inseparable from -the 
newly - fashionable Chinese 

slogan : " From each according 
to his ability, to each according 
to his work,” although, for many 
years the principle was dis- 
credited as being on the 
capitalist road,, encouraging self 
interest and leading to “class 
polarisation between rich and 
poor.” ; 

Now, however, following 
instructions from the . central 
Government to mobilise .the 
workers* enthusiasm for inr 
creasing production, mines and 
factories throughout China are 
adopting a variety of incentive 
schemes. 

Basically the schemes mean 
more money for workers who 
pull their weight. But officials, 
cautious abo.ut placing too niuch 
importance on-financial rewards, 
insist that “moral encourage- 
ment ” . must be given equal 
emphasis. 

The magazine Peking Review 
reports that In a pilot scheme 
which has been operating in a 
Peking aluminium goods factory

BY DAM WIGAN 


Alber Run, who on his last 
appearance at Ayr on August 1, 
finished .third behind Warming- 
ton and' Tap on Wood. Since 
then -Wirmington has won the 
Fitzroy House Stakes at New- 
market and Tap on' Wood the 
Group Two National Stakes at 
The Curragh. 

If form has any meaning, 
therefore, it is reasonable .to 
expect Alber Run to be able to 
concede 3 lb successfully to the 
Yarmouth winner, Monief, and 
8 lb to Two of Diamonds, runner- 
up- to More Bight at Kempton. 

The FoHifbot Handicaps is a 


tricky affair. Judged on their rul- 
ing in the Rose of York Handicap 
at. the Ebor meeting here, there 
is little between Petronisi and 
Abercata, though both would 
appear to have a slight advantage 
over Carriage Way and Blustery. 

I hope to see Petronisi, ridden 
by E. Hide, who knows this 
course like the back of his hand, 
defy top weight of 10 st 1 lb. 

Olympios, a colt by Basted,, 
who was runner-up to Nicholas- 
Bill in the Melrose Handicap at 
the Ebor meeting, is a suggestion 
for the Rufforth Handicap.

Bluebell judged on their -running -

neither may cope with EldoreL

Best bet of the-day should be

the 'entire cycle had been reached 
in. thf scene of Penelope's woo-

A vote for 
inflation 


KING CANUTE bad tbe help of 
Nature. When he needed to 
convince his courtiers that he 
was less than omnipotent, he 
had only to command the tide 
to retreat and leave them to 
watch his feet getting wet The 
Prime Minister has had less 
luck with his supporters at the 
TUC. Despite his repeated 
attempts to explain the limita- 
tions of State economic power, 
the trade unions vote ever more 
resolutely for never-never land. 

Rigidities 

The rejection of a 5 per cent 
wage norm could be defended, 
in isolation, as a perfectly 
serious vote against the rigidi- 
ties and distortions which result 
from incomes policy, and tend 
to get steadily worse as the 
period of controls is extended. 
A resolution which speaks of 
■■ normal and responsible " 
collective bargaining is super- 
ficially attractive. Respon- 
sibility, after all, implies not 
pricing your memhers out of 
their jobs, negotiating the 
means— higher productivity — 
as well as the end, higher real 
wages, and keeping fratricidal 
wars over differentials within 
bounds. Unfortuantely the con- 
text of the TUC resolution 
makes it clear that any refer- 
ence to ** responsibility " is 
purely oratorical, as far as the 
TUC is corporately concerned. 

On the wages front alone, 
the unions apear to be demand- 
ing their rises this year twice 
over — an increase in pay of 
unknown size, and on top of 
this a substantial cut in work- 
ing hours. The Prime Minister 
got a bad reception when he 
reminded the unionists that they 
could demand extra money or 
extra leisure, but one would 
have to offset the other. There 
are also the routine demands for 
special treatment for low pay, 
reviving memories of a union 
official who once argued in a 
broadcast that everyone should 
get at least the average. 

However, claiming more than 
you expect to get is a normal 
part of bargaining, and un- 
realistic targets will not seduce 
the more realistic man on the 
shopfloon there are still en- 
couraging signs that a large 
rise in real wages does not 
encourage the sillier sorts of 


militancy. It is the economic 
policy context of these claims 
-which is more wrong-headed, 
more Inflationary, and more 
likely to mislead. 

It would he hard to contrive 
a recipe more likely to provoke 
inflation and inhibit growth than 
the blend of job protection, 
higher public spending, tighter 
price controls and" confiscatory 
attacks on wealth applauded T~ 
the delegates. Unfortunately 
is only too easy to persuade 
some men in the-, street that 
price controls stop inflation, 
that giving unproductive work 
to the jobless solves the prob- 
lem of unemployment, and that 
any damage done by compress 
ing profits and destroying incen 
lives can be put right by ac 
indiscriminate application cl 
North Sea Funds. Most people 
have now learned that they 
cannot get the moon by bein. . 
paid in confetti: some may still 
be persuaded that they could 
after all have the moon if only 
the Government would adopt 
the illogical “ alternative 
strategy” sponsored by the 
TUC and supported by some 
Labour MPs. 

Cost of harmony 

The Prime Minister and the 
Chancellor, of course, are men 
who have learned realism in a 
hard school, and there is no 
chance of their believing this 
nonsense; a Labour Government 
under either would be one 
which, while sympathising with 
trade union aspirations, would 
seek to reject most TUC policies 
for achieving them. However, 
a Labour government opposing 
the basic ideas of the trade 
union movement has to pay a 
price in -what it considers less 
essential matters — exchange 
controls, the structure of tax- 
concession s. expensive rescue 
operations, an attempt to 
enforce wage norms through 
back-door pressure on em- 
ployers, unrealistic proposals 
for workers’ participation, and 
burdensome employment legis- 
lation. In total this is a high 
price to pay for the apparent 
harmony between Government 
and the trade union movement. 
The TUC’s resolutions suggest 
that future harmony would also 
be bought dearly. 


The moment to 
retire 


FOR SOME years past and more 
noticeably since last month 
when they seized the Govern- 
ment palace in Managua it has 
been the left-wing Sandinista 
guerrillas who have made the 
running among the opposition 
to the Government of General 
Anastasio Somoza, the Presi- 
dent of Nicaragua. With a good 
deal of help from the Cuban 
government the Sandinistas, 
despite deep and bitter internal 
disagreements, have mounted 
a number of hit and run opera- 
tions against General Somoza, 
the third member of his family 
to occupy the presidency of a 
country which they have con- 
trolled since the early I930's. 

Conservative party 

At times the Sandinistas hit 
the front pages of the world’s 
newspapers as when tbe seized 
a group of diplomats and politi- 
cians during a Christmas party 
in Managua or when they made 
raids over the border from 
neighbouring Costa Rica. It is 
doubtful, however, if they made 
any real dent in the well 
entrenched position of the 
Somoza family in the country. 
Tbe statistics show that last 
year the gross domestic product 
grew at no less than 6.2 per 
cent a rate o finer ease which 
many more developed countries 
of the world have reason to- 
envy. 

In the past few weeks how- 
ever a major change has come 
over the opposition to the 
Somoza government, prompted 
perhaps by the murder of the 
noted newspaper editor and 
leader of the Conservative . 
party. Sr. Pedro Joaquin 
Chamorro, some months ago and 
the insurrection of many young 
people in the city of Matagalpa. 

The Conservative party which 
had gone for decades without 
making any protests against the 
practices of the ruling family 
and its followers in the Liberal 
party suddenly recovered its 
voice and the business commu- 
nity which bad remained silent 
about the past excesses of the 
Somozas also raised its protest 

The situation today in 
Managua is that much of the 
economic life of the country has 
been brought to a halt as a 
result of a strike decreed by 


business leaders against tbe 
Somoza government Despite 
pressure ranging from arrests 
to the severing of lines of 
credit to protesting business- 
men the stoppage continues 
Traders and manufacturers 
argue that the longer General 
Somoza stays in power the 
greater the threat of full blown 
civil wax' in Nicaragua. Civil 
war, they argue would bring 
ruin to the economic structures 
of the country and would have 
the political effect of strength- 
ening those sectors of the left 
which had hitherto not been 
notable for their successes. 

At the same time the General 
himself has shown signs in 
the past few days of not being 
in control of the situation. He 
has not been able to stop a 
run on on tbe banks and whiTe 
his soldiers have been attempt- 
ing to quell the insurrection by 
force of arms he h§s made 
liberal use of verbal violence 
against those who are unsympa- 
thetic to him. He has made the 
astonishing assertion that the 
U.S. administration is under 
Marxist influence and he has 
launched a direct personal 
attack . on President Carlos 
Andrds P6rez of Venezuela, 

The economy 

While he has claimed that all 
opposition to him is Communist- 
inspired he has included among 
the . detainees numerous well- 
known businessmen who are 
anything but Communists, in- 
cluding, for instance, the 
general manager of Coca-Cola 
in Nicaragua and members of 
the Nicaraguan equivalent of the 
Confederation of British 
Industry. 

Faced as he now is with vir- 
tually universal opposition to the 
rule of his family it would be 
much better for his country and 
for hint. if he decided to retire 
immediately and not try to hang 
lamely on till his official presi- 
dential term expires in 1981. 
Nicaragua and its economy 
would avoid unnecessary damage 
if General Somoza were to call 
it a day, forget any ideas he had 
of installing his son as a member 
of the third generation of the 
family to rule tbe country and 
bring the curtain • down on a 
dynasty which has ruled with 
mixed success since 1932.

cent growth rate in its 1978 
fiscal year is coming un- 
stuck, for a reason which, 
ironically, should be very much 
to the taste of its partners and 
competitors in world trade. The 
reason is that the export boom 
which kept the economy grow- 
ing through the years of global 
recession following the 1973 oil 
crisis at long last seems to be 
coming to an end. 

The collapse of exports (if 
that is not too strong a word— 
though some officials at the Eco- 
nomic Planning Agency and the 
Ministry of International Trade 
and Industry would certainly 
not object to it) seems likely 
to leave the growth rate at least 
a percentage point short of the 
7 per cent to which the Prime 
Minister, Mr. Takeo Fukuda, 
committed himself at the Bonn 
Summit in the interests of a 
global economic recovery. It 
could also mean that growth in 
1979 .(about which Japanese 
officials are already worrying) 
will be substantially less than 
whatever turns out to be the 
final figure for 1978. 

To say that tbe export boom 
is ending is not the same as say-, 
ing that Japan's current account 
surplus is about to return to 
modest levels from the exces- 
sive heights of the past year or 
so. Expressed in terms of dol- 
lars, the surplus is still tending 
to get larger. Exports in the 
first three months of the 1978 
fiscal year (April to June) were 
running 23 per cent above the 
level of the previous year in 
dollar terms, while the value of 
imports was only 5 per cent 
higher. For the-fiscal year as a 
whole, Japan looks like running 
a trade surplus of weU over 
$20bn, while the official esti- 
mate for the current account 
surplus (including invisibles) 
now stands at Y2,700bn. (At 
tbe current exchange rate, this 
works out at $142bn). 

These figures for the nominal 
value of Japan’s exports in 
devalued dollars must, however, 
be set against "the figures for 
the actual volume of shipments, 
which show very different 
trends. Measured on a volume 
basis, exports showed a 2.5 per 
cent decline- from a year ago 
during the three months from 
April to June, while In July 
alone the fall came to 7-6 per 
cent Conversely, import volume 
showed a 1.9 per cent rise from 
April to June, and scored a 4.4 
per cent gain in July. 

The reason for the downward 
trend of the volume of exports 
and for the beginnings of an 
upward trend of imports is 
simple enough. Yen revaluation 
(hy 53 per cent against the 
dollar since the beginning of 
1977) has at last begun to blunt 
the competitive . edge of 
Japanese goods in world mar- 
kets, while simultaneously 
making imports cheaper. The 
effects of yen revaluation on 


exports can be measured by 
looking at the trend of ship- 
ments by four of Japan’s 
strongest export industries over 
the past few montoa. 

The industries concerned are 
motors, ships, steel and TV sets. 
The last three suffered declines 
in their export volume ranging 
from 45 per cent (for ships) to 
9.5 pdr cent (for steel) fro™ 
April-June 1977 to the second 
quarter of 1978; Car exports 
were still running ahead °f 
1977 levels ' in ' AprilJnne, 
chiefly because distribution 
pipelines in Japan's largest 
export market, the U.S., bad 
been allowed . to run dry and 
were being, replenished. In 


appreciation of the yen may 
almost have run its course and 
is not likely to produce any 
further savings in the prices of 
such goods (expressed in yen) 
in the near future. On the con- 
sumer durables front, an 
instance of - yen' revaluation 
taking effect is that of car im- 
ports. They have risen in 
volume by 16 per cent since the 
start of 1978. Waiting lists of 
‘*up to three months” are being 
reported for some European 
cars (notably Mercedes ' and 
Jaguar). 

The growth of- imports of 
manufactured goods and the 
levelling off of exports has 
begun to have an appreciable 


relations with the outside world 
are concerned, and why It may 
not be free of such troubles for 
some time. The second, and 
more serious, reason for anxiety 
is that the' si owing-down of 
exports has removed a much- 
needed prop from the Japanese 

domestic economy. 

The importance of exports (or 
rather of the overseas sector 
as a whole) to the progress or 
lack of- progress made by the 
rest of the economy can " be 
understood- from a brief glance 
at the-, GNP for the first two, 
quarters of this year. In' the 
first quarter, when the .economy 
registered impressive 2.5 per 



P0 



Japanese "cars exports have started falling 


Fraase-Vartfetf 


July, car exports also, started 
falling, and the expectation is 
that the trend will continue. 

The behaviour of imports 
over the past four months is 
harder to chronicle tn detail 
because no figures are available 
for the volume of individual 
items. The most that can. be 
said is that raw material- and 
food imports, which traditionally 
make up the overwhelming bulk 
of Japan's purchases from the 
outside world, are apparently 
not growing, but that imports 
of manufactured goods have 
started to rise. Official figures 
indicate that the ratio of manu- 
factured imports to total imports 
has risen as high as 30 per 
cent in some recent months 
from the 20 per cent level, at 
which it was hovering until a 
year or so ago. 

Japanese trading companies 
are said to be stepping up their 
order for European and U.S. 
machinery and other capital 
equipment in the belief that the 


impact on Japan's trade bal- 
ance with the EEC, for long a 
source of friction and argu- 
ment It began .to show signs of 
stabilising during the .early 
months of 1978, after at least 
five years of Inexorable growth 
of the Japanese surplus with 
Europe. The trend seems to 
have- continued up to July, 
although EEC officials remain 
sceptical whether it will last. 

The signs of a turn-round in 
Japan-EEC trade " contrasts 
rather glaringly with the posi- 
tion vis-a-vis the U.S. • For a 
variety of reasons, including the 
relatively low share of manu- 
factured goods in U.S. exports 
to Japan, the Japan-U.S. trade, 
gap has opened still wider in 
1978 than in the previous year. 
It win almost certainly set an 
all-time record for the year as 
a whole. 

The uneasy trading relation- 
ship with the U.S. is one reason 
why Japan is still not out of 
trouble, as far as its economic 


cent growth' over the previous 
quarter in real terms,- exports 
were booming and imports were 
static, with the result that GNP 
growth of no less than fl.7~per 
cent came from . the external 
sector. .. 

The situation in the. second 
quarter of the year was the 
reverse. The external sector 
made a negative contribution to 
overall growth, so that.G^flP ex- 
panded by a mere XI cent, 
less than half the rat&4chieved 
at the beginning of/the year. 
Foreign trade though yielding 
a net surplus oh a monthly 
basis, will be making a 
diminishing ^contribution . to 
overall GNP growth for the rest 
of this calendar year and prob- 
ably well into 1979. The Gov- 
ernment thus seems to have a 
serious problem on its hands — 
how to keep the economy grow- 
ing on schedule for the rest of 
the fiscal year without the 


assistance of what used to be 
its most dynamic sector. 

The 7 per cent real growth 
target, to which My. . FJikuda 
originally committed himself 
lastDecember at the height of 
what looked tike an alarmingly 
intense confrontation with- the 

US, can be attained if, bnt only 
if, the economy manages to 
■deliver a quarter-toquaiter 
growth rate of 2 per cent In 
real terms during the remainder 
of the fiscal year (he. from now 
until March 31, 1979). . This is. 
nearly double the growth rate 
of the April-June quarter. Some 
thing drastic will clearly be 
needed to put the economy back 
on .'trend during the next few 

months. . . • 

The need for decisive action 
: was underlined in a White 
JPaper on the economy published 
by the Economic - Planning 
Agency shortly before - the 
summer holidays. The warning 
seems to have been taken to 
heart by the committee J of 
economic Cabinet Ministers, who 
spent much of August ’discuss-' 
in g ways of putting life back 
into the economy. Even so, there 
are doubts whether enough has. 
been or will be done to boost 
the growth rate during the rest 
of the year. . 

. The centrepiece in the" 
Government's ’ short - term 
economic strategy is * the 
Y2,500bn public investment 
package presented last weekend. 
It provides for the pumping in 
of funds equivalent to about 1.5 
per cent of the 1977 GNP Into 
a wide range <*£ public Works 
projects, such as roads, 
drainage, schools and. hospitals, 
and -for the allocation of extra 
funds to State-subsidised 
housing programmes. / 

Alter allowing tor the cost of 
acquiring land and for delays 
which may extend the impler 
mentation of the programme 
beyond 'the .end of the fiscal 
year, the Government estimates 
that the net contribution of .the 
package to GNP will" be around 
1.3 per cent, or enough to bring 
7 per cent, growth “com- 
fortably” within reach. Private 
forecasters doubt this, estimate. 
and ^are more inclined to think 
that, even with the package, 
growth may barely reach- 6 per 
cent during the fiscal year* 

They also ask whether the 
Government has not been over- 
cautious in confining itself to 
finan c in g the package mainly 
from reserves accumulated from 


the 1978 main budget, 
than from new defieit 
There will apparently be r .

Government’s bond issued 
autumn, beyond the 
already allocated- for thesis 
1978 budget, so timtth&eflfc 
of the package oh money^m* 
witi be" neutral. * < - 

Another option which i 
Government seems detemfo •" 
not to exercise is to stihug 
demand by «^oans of a tax < . 
Mr. Fukuda and other eraser 
tively-mihded economists in* 
Government argue "Qjat wtt

MEN AND MAHERS 


Switching the 
court circuit 

The Crown jeweller. Bill 
Summers, tells me that be was 
slightly caught out ” this week 
when Buckingham Palace 
announced that Prince Charles 
was to switch on the Christmas 
lights in Regent Street It was 
only at the end af the month 
that he was planning to 
announce that, after seven years 
of austerity, the lights were to 
make a comeback. 

Summers, a director of 
Garrard and Co., and presi- 
dent of the Regent Street 
Association, says that the fault 
was his for not checking with 
the Palace on when the 
announcement was to be made. 
But at a hurriedly-convened 
press conference yesterday he 
had no apologies for the way 
that Regent Street is sticking to 
light bulbs while Oxford Street 
is moving with the times and 
switching to lasers. 

The Oxford Street laser jam- 
boree of a “moving ceiling of 
lights just above the roofs of 
London’s buses ” is to cost 
some £250.000 to instal and 



I can sec you lostng the 
election on toe music lovers 
- vote!” 


promote. But Summers, as 
befits a spokesman for a street 
laid out by Nash, adopts a more 
traditional approach: ■“ One 
doesn’t want to be tboujght 
stuffy, but I think laser beams 
in Regent Street would sot be 
quite right." 

Prince Charles is to switch on 
the more conventional display 
of silver garlands on his birth- 
day, November 14. The cost of 
the 5,000 bulbs is £60,000, rela- 
tively modest by Oxford Street 
standards. But from Summers’ 
air of confidence I had the im- 
pression Regent Street thought 
a Royal hand throwing the 
switch was worth any number 
of argon lasers round - the 
comer. 


Flights of fancy 

Flying is fun. For those who 
missed out this summer while 
waiting two days and more for 
a plane, British Airways is 
thoughtfully spending £&5m to 
brighten up its image. 

A " warm and friendly " tele- 
vision family called tbe Taylors 
will soon take up the challenge 
of showing how enjoyable flying 
has become since those heady 
summer days. The aim of BA’s 
advertising spree is to bring a 
" sense of adventure to the air- 
line business,’* says a spokes- 
man. - 

BA,_T am told, is seeking to 
reflect how it has changed its 
face. Tbe big change was,’ it 
seems, when BEA and BOAC 
merged four rears ago — which 
shows that facia] surgery in the 
airline business takes time. Now 
the top priority is tn rid BA 
of its “ snob appeal airline 
image," and to show it as a 

“human, caring airline." What 

about tbe “Fly the Flag" Cam-, 
paign ? Well, that had been a 
“ bit heavy,” and in any case 
the airline “is now a changed 
outfit, absolutely committed to 
low fares," I was told. 

. Britain's new mass-appeal' air- 
line admits that businessmen are 
facing problems caused by the 


pressures on counters and seats 
from toe low-fare end of the 
market But now special dis- 
count sales centres are to be 
established. In a cruel cut, 
businessmen are to be dis- 
couraged from buying at these 
— though It may be a consola- 
tion that they should receive a 
faster service from the usual 
channels. It all sounds marvel- 
lous fun'. 


Stirring the sands 

When toe Nile turned to blood, 
red volcanic dust was toe 
reason. As for the pillars of 
fire by night -and of smoke by 
day, they could possibly have 
been the island of Santorini 
erupting. These challenging re- 
interpretations by Exodus are 
only two of tbe theories put 
forward this week by the metal- 
lurgist, John Dayton. ' 

His recasting of the history 
of the ancients includes bring- 
ing forward toe date of the 
eruption—and thus of the des- 
truction of toe legendary 
Atlantis — by soipe two centuries 
to 1350 BC. He also argues that 
the dynasties of supper and 
lower Egypt were not united by 
tbe first Pharaoh. Menes, until 
2000 BC, 1000 years later than 
customarily accepted. Even 
more controversial is his sugges- 
tion that Menes of Egypt and 
Minos of Crete could be one and 
the same character. 

Slightly far fetched. I ventured 
to suggest, only to be told that 
his dates actually fit in with the 
dates established by carbon 
dating — 'provided these are 
not “corrected.” The usual 
correction is to apply the 
changes necessary to adapt ages 
established by carbon dating to. 
those of the rings in the long- 
lived bristle-cone pine in 
Arizona. Such adaptations may 
be suitable tor North America 
bnt not tor this side of the 
Atlantic, Dayton firmly says. He 
is even more dismissive of dating 
systems based on pottery, 
“Styles from one year can be 
made much later too. In any 


case, if a future archaeologist 
tried to compare a plastic mug 
with a Royal Worcester cup, he 
would not get very far.” 

- His own dating is based on 
the sophisticated technology 
used in metal smelting and 
glazing. He thinks it "barmy” 
that under present dating tech- 
niques bronzes with tin 
apparently took 1000 years 
merely to cross the mountains 
from Mesopotamia to north 
Syria. 

In his book Minerals, Metals. 
Glazing and Man, which bas just 
been printed he lists “techno- 
logy horizons'* which abolish 
such anomalies, he claims. And, 
working from the premise that 
the processing of raw materials 
had first to "take place’ near! 
where they are found, he insists 
that civilisation could not have 
begun in the Fertile Crescent j 
Silver, tin, cobalt and 23 other 
elements essential to this civi- 
lization are not found there. 
Instead Dayton' suggests 
Bohemia is a more likely venue 

— which, instead of Egypt, may, 
have been the true source of! 
the blue faience beads found 
from Wessex to the River 
Indus. 

How did the archaeologists at! 
this week’s international con- 
gress react to all this? " Well, 
it is quite a task cutting the 
Gordian knot of accepted chro- 
nology. Some have said that it 
was about time something like 
this happened. Others gasp 
that my 496 pages will take a 
lot of reading.” 


Think positive 

A Surrey reader watching 
football with a Jordanian friend 
remarked oh the. lack of enthu- 
siasm of one side's half-backs. 
“You English are defeatists,* 
remarked the Arab, “in my 
country we would make such 
players feel good by telling! 
them they were half-forward.’

Boris, the construction division, 
after adjusting for the i-xpectional 
claim of £5.{Jm received in Ve 
first half of last year, and P and 
O Cruises took advantage of 
belter trading conditions to 
return improved results while the 
other divisions taken together 


produced profits only . slightly

perio\ they add. 

Cruising, the European awl Air 
Transport division and Bovis are 
expected to benefit from seasonal 
factors in the second half of this; 
year while property, banking and 
insurance should also increase 
contributions, the directors state. 

Conditions in the deep-sea 
trades are showing tentative signs 
of having stabilised, although at 
unsatisfactory levels, but without 
as yet any indication of a 
sustained upturn, they add. 

Conscious of the need for 
resolute action in the difficult 
conditions which are foreseen the 
Board has appointed Lord Inch- 
cape, the present chairman, to be 
executive chairman aud chief 
executive of the company. This 
will free Mr. A. B. Marshall, 
managing director, to .supervise 
and co-or\ : nate operations.

REFLECTING VERY heavy claims 
in the UK in the early part of 
the year fire, accident and marine 
underwriting at Son -Alliance and 
London Insurance fell from P «m 
surplus to a £VL5m loss slicing 
taxable profit for the first half 
of 197S from' £3(L4m to £20.7m. 

There was a total underwriting 
loss Of £6.9m on home business 
which was more than accounted' 
for by the abnormal weather 
claims, estimated at £8.5m, and 
exceptional fire losses. The hotne 
personal account was particularly 
unprofitable and the home- motor 
account also showed an under- 
writing loss with an increase in 
claims frequency the • directors 
say.

Portals' first-half figures confirm 


fhe trends shown since mid-1977 
— substantial profiLs growth for 
the group’s water treatment and 
engineering divisions alongside a 
stagnant performance from the 
papermaking concern. , Water 
treatment contracting continues 
to show a particular improvement, 
especially on the export side as 
spending by UK water authorities 
is still relatively low. Around 
half the company's total business 
is now done abroad. The bank- 
note side is unlikely to show 
much earnings growth at present 
with central banks continuing to 
economise on the issue or new 
notes and. inflation generally lower 
than- for some time. On unchanged 
profits front this division the 
group as a whole can look for 
pre-tax profits o[ £9.5 m to £10m 
this year against the 1977 figure 
of £8.7m. At present the orjier 
book suggests the water and 
engineering divisions should con- 
tinue their present growth into 
1979. The shares, down 2p at 23Sp. 
stand on a prospective yield of 
3.5 per cent and a p-e of 9 on 
a full, tax charge. 


DESPITE A _ . downturn _ i n 
associates' earnings from £2.76ni 
to £2.l9ra. profits before lax of 
Guinness Peat Group advanced by 
£2m to £U.07m for the year ended 
April 30. 1978. Turnover, compris- 
ing sales, brokerage and fee 
income, was higher at £444 .7:1 ru 
against £359.02m. 

Profits within -Ihe group's 
trading divisions rose by over 40 
per cent and disclosed profits in 
the banking division by 33 per 
cent to £I.6m. However, earnings 
from the group's main associates, 
Linfood Holdings and Esperanra 
Trade and Transport significantly 
declined in the year.' 

In January, in their interim 
report, the- directors said 'that 
results to date were comfortably 
ahead of those of the previous 
year's same period.. 

They now report that sub- 
stantial progress was made in all 
division*, particularly in Gainness, 
Peat International which is 
steadily gaining ground .and estab- 
lishing new products throughout 
the world.. The groups chemical 
division has been strengthened 
by the acquisition of Willows

The group continues to trade at 
an encouraging level and is 
proceeding with an organic expan- 
sion programme of its basic 
activities. The directors maintain

their .confidence’- ih the future 
potential of the group and its 
main Associates, but say that at 
this point they can give no fore- 
cast as to the outcome of the 
current year.

currently' payable. £0.29m 
(£1.57 ri): • deferred. £2.19ra 

(£1.07mj; and overseas, £lB8m 
f£1.2Tm).' The directors say if was 
no longer considered necessary to 
provide further deferred tax tn 
certain subsidiaries which partly 
accounts for the reduction in tar 
charge from A3 per cent to 40.3 
per cent. 

Earnings per 25p share are 
2-L32p f20.06p J and the dividend 
total is raised from 9.9o205p to the 
maximum permitted 10.25p, 
absorbing £3.76ra (£2J»9ra), with a 
final of fip. 

' In line with current practice, 
the directors have decided to 
write off part of 4he goodwill 
shown in the balance sheet. This 
Will mean that the tola) extra- 
ordinary write off will be much 
greater than usual, amounting lo 
£1. 835.000. or which £1,010.000 vvilJ 
represent goodwill. 

The balance includes losses" of 
r exchange on a Swiss .franc loan 
raised in- connection with an 
acquisition some years ago. which 
has now been fully repaid. It 
also includes the terminal costs of 
two subsidiaries which no longer 
fit within ihe framework of the 
group's activities.

reached £2 2m at the end af the 
first three months. The UK fire

In Australia pressures on rate 
levels produced an adverse under-

The proposed changes in our South African organisation 
are not expected to have any material effect on our overall 
earnings in 1978 (nor on the comparative figures in 1977) 
as the removal of the 1978 South African Life profits wiii 
be offset by the short-term South African business now 
directly owned. The Life new business figures for the year 
1 977 and the half-year 1 977 have been adjusted to exclude 
the South African business. 

In the U.K. the second quarter's underwriting was 
profitable after a poor start to the year caused by adverse 
weather and the firemens' strike. In Canada the Anti- 
Inflation. Board regulations still diminish the satisfactory 
profits that might otherwise have been made. In Australia 
lower profits have resulted in response to very keen com- 
petition. In both Germany and Holland the underwriting 
results continue to be poor. Corrective measures have been 
taken but have not had time to be effective. Brazil, Hong 
Kong and departments writing overseas risks from London 
have made good profits arid, in other areas, no material 
change has been encountered. 

Exchange movements have depressed our premium 
income by £4.6m and our investment income by £1 .1 m. 

Life business has continued to devejop well and despite 
the changes in our South African organisation life profits 
have been maintained.

Mr. Peter GoodalL, chairman, 
reports that the six-months under

what little added momentum 
there was in the private house 
building sector was very much 
more than offset by the worsening 
of the deep-seated recession in the

Wagon Finance £1.3m midyear 


ALTHOUGH pre-tax profits of 
Wagon Finance Corporation rose 
by £191,744 to £3^07,465 in the 
first half at 1978, at present rates, 
higher interest charges are 
expected in the second half and 
the directors say ' they do not 
expect the first half' profit 
increase to be reflected In results 
for the full year. 

With lower rates prevailing for 
most of the first half, interest 
charges were nearly £300,000 
lower despite higher borrowing 
to finance expansion of business. 

However, despite these fluctua- 
tions, Mr. S. M. de Bartolome 
reports that the underlying busi- 
ness is going ahead wen and that 
amounts advanced under new 
credit agreements were 31 per 
cent up in the first half. At 
June 30 the group's instalment 


balances, before deducting 
unearned finance charges, 
amounted to a -record £43 .9m. 

Earnings per 25p share are 
shown to have risen from LSSp 
to 2„>p at halfway and the net 
interim dividend is effectively 
held at 0.625p. Last year’s total 
payment was equivalent to 2.0625p 
from taxable profits of £2.15ni.

comment 


Wagon Finance has taken care 
that shareholders should not draw 


the wrong conclusions from the 
60 per cent leap in its first half 
profits, and has left its interim 
dividend unchanged to reinforce 
the message. Hie .current six 
months may show a downturn 
following pre-tax profits of £L3m 
in each of the last two half-years 
when -interest rates were at their 
lowest and the company’s margins 
high. However, the outlook for 
turnover is promising as tbe 
consumer boom in the UK is 
keeping instalment credit 
business strong. The company 
is still overwhelmingly concerned 
with the buoyant motor vehicle 
and motor-cycle markets, which 
account for 87 per cent of its 
credits. The shares at 44p, yield 
S per cent on the assumption that 
the final dividend gives a 10 per 
cent rise in the year’s overall 
pay-out.

Fairbaim Lawson £0.75m in first half 


RESL^LTS OF Fairbarrn Lawson 
for tlie first half of 197S are close 
to plan at £747,000 pre-tax and 
the board is looking for the profit 
improvement— 3.6 per cent and 
20.3 per cent over the first and 
second halves of 1977 respectively 
— to contiue in the second six 
months. 

Turnover advanced from £8.S9m 
to £8.7Sm, including a contribu- 
tion from the Westwood Group 
acquired in January this year. 

Tax charge is £191,000 (£105.000) 
giving earnings per share of 4.84p 
against 6^4p. 

At the time of the Westwood 
a-rqufcrtton, a total dividend of 
5p was forecast for the current 
year. 

Sir John Lawson, chairman, now 
says tradinjrconditions and results 
experienced continue to be in 'line 
with forecast and Treasury 
approval has been received to 
implement the dividend policy “on 
the understanding that the current 
regulations are still in force when 
we recommend our final 

dividend.’

Under these circumstances and 
in view of the reduction in ACT, 
the interim dividend is doubled 
to 2p and the chairman reiterates 
the commitment 'to achieve earn- 
ings in the second half which 
will support payment of a 3.0757 p 
final. 

Jn 1977 a total dividend of 
3.&460p was paid on pre-tax profits 
of £1.34m. 


•The capital goods division 'ales 
increased in the half year and a 
significant element of this has 
been in sales generated by invest- 
ment in development expenditure. 
However, the contribution of this 
division as a percentage of total 
group sales has fallen to 50.3 per 
cent compared with 62.5 per cent 
and 33.2 per cent in the first and 
second halves of 1977. 

There is under-utilised capacity 
in this division and working capi- 
tal requirements have steadily in- 
creased under the severe market 
recession. 

Filtration and fluid control has 
grown materially following the 
Westwood acquisition and will 
continue to benefit in the second 
half not only from Westwood* but, 
also from the acquisition of 
Bolton's Superheater and Pipe 
Works and Stockport Engineering 
Company.. 

There has been further substan- 
tial growth in. officp furniture 
following the acquisition of 
Kasparians. Sales and earnings 
have shown a satisfactory im- 
provement over both the first and 
second half of 1977. 

Packaging division sales are up 
over the first half of 1977 but are 
slightly down on the second half 
of that year. However, earnings 
have shown a steady increase over 
Ihe first and second halves of 
1977. 

This division has not made the 
progress it anticipated in its new 
product development, the expendi- 
ture oo which is written off as in- 
curred. but its existing products 
have done well in the market- 
place and have stabilised sales 
volume and earnings, the chair- 
man says. 

In property, progress in letting 


continues to be satisfactory and 
the property has been substanti- 
ally filled. Income from third 
parties accounted for 61 JB per 
cent of total rents compared with 
47.3 per cent and 55.4 per. cent 
respectively over the first and 
second halves of 1977. 

The directors are concerned 
about- the value of a part of the 
investments shown in the balance 
sheet at £357,000. The unquoted 
investment In Ausack In Australia 
represents £132,000 of that total 
or i.i4p per share. A receiver has 
been appointed, and directors are 
currently negotiating to protect 
their interests. 

As a result of the acquisition of 
Bolton’s Superheater and Stock- 
port Engineering it is intended to 
incorporate the surplus arising 
from the revaluation of their free- 
hold property at the year end. 
This sain is expected to be 
£165,000 or 1.43p per share.

Chairman’s statement 



Prieska Copper Mines (Pty) Limited 

(Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa) 

Improved efficiencies outweighed by weak metal, prices 

— Mr R. T. Swemmer 


Despite an outstanding achievement in milling and treating a record 
tonnage of ore. producing the highest ever combined quantities of copper 
and zinc concentrates ana reducing unit milling costs by 1196 (R12.06 to 
R1 0,74), the profit of R8 221 000, including sundry revenue of R961 000, 
for the year ended 30 June 1978. was substantially below last year's 
R17 252 000. This results from the weakness of copper and zinc metal 
prices on world markets — factors that have affected our operations since 
inception with only brief periods of respite. After deducting R2 234 000 
(1977: R3 585 000) for interest paid and other expenses, appropriations of 
R3 231 000 (1977: R5 01 5 OOO) for capital expenditure. R4 267 000 
(1977: R4 742 000) for loan repayments and taking into account 
R1 539 000 raised through a further note issue, R28 000 (1977: 
R3 910 000} was transferred to general reserve. 

The continually bearish influences of weak demand, high stock levels and 
over-production of copper and zinc were reflected in prices. The European 
producer price for G.O.B. zinc retreated very rapidly over the past 15 
months, failing from S795 in May 1977 to S55Q/m ton in February 1978. 
The average price for zinc during the year was therefore only 5604/m ton. 
compared with S784/m ton in 1 976/1977. With signs of discipline emerg- 
ing among major zinc producers, evidenced by real and significant produc- 
tion cutbacks, there ar e indications of some stability returning to this 
market As supply and demand patterns come into better balance, the price 
should benefit This is evidenced by the increase on 11 August 1978 in 
the producer price for zinc from $550 to $625/m ton. However, in the absence 
of a strong economic upturn in major consuming countries, ws do not 
foresee a rapid return to the early 1 977 price levels. 

The average price received by the Company for copper was £668/m ton 
(1977; £81 9/m ton). Recant events affecting copper production In some of 
the major third world production areas did not have any lasting effect on the 
London Metal Exchange copper price and the past financial year has been 
one of the worst for the copper industry since the second world war. if these 
events and other production factors (such as the loss of expatriate miners 


from tbe Zambian mines) have the effect of reducing stocks and the supply 
of metal to the market there may be same improvement However, as with 
zinc, a strong upturn in demand must occur before the price recovers to a 
more realistic level in real terms, which is essential for producers to earn 
adequate returns on their investment as well as to encourage new 
investment 

Although capital expenditure lagged behind our forecasts for the 
year and stringent financial controls kept mine .working costs in check, 
■t was still considered prudent to negotiate the substitution of the 31 
December 1977 loan repayments lo United States Steel Corporation and 
Anglo-Trarrsvaal Consolidated Investment Company, Limited ("Anglo- 
vaal") with a further note issue of R1 454. 000 and, simultaneously, to 
raise an additional loan from Anglovaal and Middle Witwatersrand 
(Western Areas) Limited of R1 539 000. also represented by notes. These 
arrangements were effected on the same basis as those made in 1976. 
Without these funds, which totalled some R3 000 000, the Company's 
cash resources would have been seriously depleted by the year end ; in any 
event, cash reserves were reduced from R8 977 OOO at 30 June 1977 to 
R7 099 000 at 30 June 1 978. 

CapiralexpBndrture in the current year is estimated at about R7,4 million 
and will be confined mainly to gaining access to the deeper parts of the 
orebody involving, amongst other items, preparations for deepening the 
Hutching!* shaft and the sinking of a 1,7 by 3.4 metre sub-vertical shaft. 
V ery much improved metal prices during the current financial year will be 
required to enable the Company to meet this expenditure and loan instal- 
ments of some R5.7 million from internal sources. 

Prospecting work on the orebody and of its environs continued and it is 
estimated that this will absorb about R300 000 to June 1 979. Drilling from 
surface into the area where the upswing of the orebody takes place 
(referred to last year) is presently in progress. 

25 August 1 S7S

Occidental Petroleum bid 
attempt for Mead blocked 


BY DAVID LA5CELLES 

MEAD, the large forestry pro- 
ducts company which is fighting 
a takeover bid -by Occidental 
Petroleum, won breathing space 
today, when the Ohio division of 
securities announced that it will 
hold bearings on OccidenlaTs 
proposed tender offer. 

The hearings will take place 
from September 11-23 and mean 
that Occidental cannot go ahead 
with its offer in the State of 
Ohio, where Mead is head- 
quartered. until October 20. the 
date when the securities division 
says it expects to be making a 
final decision. This effectively 
blocks the whole tender offer for 
that period. 

The bearings are planned 
primarilv to decide whether 
Occidental is providing enough 
information about itself to 
enable Mead shareholders to 


make up their minds about its 
offer. ET the division decides 
that Occidental has not supplied 
enough information, it can either 
ask the company to disclose 
more or reject the. offer in Its 
present form. 

Occidental's tender offer, which 
has no officially stated value 
chough analysis have put it 
between S730m and SI bn, is the 
largest in the U.S. this year. It 
has attracted interest because it 
brings together an oil company 
with a forestry company and is 
thought to mark a growing trend 
among energy companies into 
sectors with self -reproducing 
assets. 

However. Mead has strongly 
resisted the offer with a barrage 
of publicity and letters to share- 
holders, mainly on the grounds 
that Occidental is offering con- 
vertible preferred stock, or 


NEW YORK, Sept- 6. 

“ paper,” and not cash. But it 
has also pointed out that Occi- 
dental's chairman. Dr. Arm and 
Hammer, is SO years old. that the 
company is subject to numerous 
lawsuits, and that in 1976. Dr. 
Hammer pleaded guilty to 
Federal criminal investigations 
in California. 

In an interview with the Wall 
Street Journal today. Mead’s 
chairman. Mr. James McSwioey. 
claimed “ we’ve run a good 
show.” Mead’s liquidity is now 
said to he such that it will he 
able to invest Slbn in new facili- 
ties and businesses over the nest 
five years and still hold debt at 
a conservative 30 per cent of 
shareholder equity. 

Mead officials also say that the 
company, which has raised divi- 
dends for five consecutive years, 
will be able to pay out about 30 
per cent of earnings. . 


Strong third quarter for Fluor 


BY OUR FINANCIAL STAFF 

AN “ EXCEPTIONALLY strong " 
third quarter . is reported by 
Fluor Corporation, the process 
plant and construction group, 
whose earnings in the first half 
were hit by the prolonged strike 
in the U.S. coal industry. 

Net earnings for the third 
quarter have jumped to $23.5in 
nr S1.3H a share, from the S20.4m 
nr Si. 21 of the comparable 
period. Sales of S747.0iu compare 
with S579m. 

The upturn brings the total 
earnings for tbe nine months to 


Julv 31 at $55.1 m against S56m 
or S3.26 a share against S333. 
Sales have totalled $2.03bn com- 
pared with Sl-37bn. 

Tbe strength disclosed by the 
latest figures will provide addi- 
tional backing for the Board's 
prediction in June that earnings 
for the full year would surpass 
last year's $4.48 a share. 

Providing further encourage- 
ment for shareholders is the 
disclosure of a substantial rise 
in the orders hooked by the 
Irvine. California-based group. 


whose interests include a 10 per 
cent stake in Peabody Coal in 
the U.S. as well as leadership 
of a consortium drilling for oil 
in the British section of the 
North Sea. 

At the end of the third quarter, 
reports Fluor, enters outstand- 
ing at $765m showed an increase 
of or more than 250 per cent 
over the figure of a year ago. 
and contributed substantially to 
i he increase in the backlog at 
tiie nine-month stage from 
SS.56bn to S12JbD. 


Agreement 
expected on 
on Pan Am 
takeover 

By Stewart. Fleming.. 

NEW YORK. Sept- 6. 
MR. WILLIAM SEA WELL, 
chairman of Pas American 

World Airways; predicted today 
that the company’ would reach 

a definitive merger agreement 
with National Airlines today. 

The two computes were 
negotiating throughout yester- 
day on the terms of- the $550m 
proposal to acquire National 
which Pan Am announced last 
month. National Is fending off 
a rival takeover attempt from 
a smaller regional airline, 
Texas .International Airlines. 

If. .the two ■ companies do 
reach formal agreement — and 
Hr. Seaweli gave no indication 
of whether the proposed S41 
a share terms were being re- 
vised — the deal would have to 
be approved by the Civil Aero- 
nautics Board (CAB), whose 
chairman. Mr. Alfred. Kahn, 
has indicated that he would 
prefer lo see Pan Am expand 
its domestic routes itself rather 
than through a merger. 

After yesterday’s negotia- 
tions. National , said, that its 
board would meet today to 
consider definitive -. merger 
terms. Mr. Seawall said this 
morning that “final negotia- 
tions are in progress and it is 
expected that a final agree- 
ment will be submitted to the 
Pan Am board today." 


Analysts’ new look at Deere 


DEF.RE's strong third quarter 
profit performance has caused 
financial analysts lo raise their 
197S earnings estimates for the 
company. 

Merrill Lynch Pierce Fenner 
and Smith analyst. Masses 
Mi oh as. raised the estimate of 
Deere's fiscal 197S fending 
October i earnings to $4.57 a 
share from the previous estimate 
or $4.10 lo S4.30. 

Despite significant losses from 
translation of Foreign currencies, 
he said. Deere's third quarter 
result “were 20 cents a share 
above Hie estimate we had pub- 
lished in April this year” and 
30 cents above the earnings a 
year ago. 

Tin? company recently re- 


ported third quarter net of SI.3S 
a share against SIJiS a year ear- 
lier. 

Deere's retail sales of equip- 
ment during the important 
spring selling season were 
strong, causing dealer inven- 
tories to remain at a low level. 
Mich as said. “We now expect 
the company to increase pro- 
duction schedules next year and. 
based on that assumption, we 
estimate an increase in earnings 
in fiscal 1979 of about 10 p:-r 
cent.” The Merrill Lynch esti- 
mate for Deere for fiscal 1979 
is S3 a share.

analysts. Piper Jaffray and Hop-

fiscal 1978. raised his estimate to 
$4.40 a share from $4.25 and is 
looking to the range of $5 to 
S5.I0 for fiscal 1979. .In 1977, 
Deere earned S4.24 a share. 

s 

Roberts added that even 
though he recently raised his 
estimate, he is reviewing it. 

Mich as expects that a t the end 
of the current fiscal year Deere's 
balance sheet will be fairly 
liquid, with trade receivables and 
inventories at or near last year’s 
level and with much lower short 
term debt. 

The company currently pays a 
quarterly dividend of 35 cents a 
share.

BANK OF NEW YORK 



with the 


BY: DAVID LASCELLES IN NEW YORK 



DURING THE RECENT fiurry of 
foreign banking takeovers in the 
U.S., one bank has featured more 
than most as a possible target: 
the Bank of New York. Apart 
front possessing a memorable 
name and som c S6.4bn in assets, 
it is the. city's oldest bank, all 
points which seem to make it a 
prize worth seeking. 

Bui Mr. Elliott Averett, the 
Bank’s chairman and chief 
executive officer,- scotches all 
rumours of a takeover. In a 
recent interview, he said: “I’ve 
beard these rumours too, but I 
can tell you we -have not had a 
single serious approach/* 

In a city where hundreds of 
banks vie for status and business. 
Bank of New York (BNY) takes 
a somewhat low key approach. 
This bas partly to. do with its 
history, which confers upon it a 
lustre no other bank can match. 
But it also has something to do 
with its size which puts it con- 
veniently between 1 the big 
leaguers, who come under 
constant public scrutiny, and the 
medium leaguers, who seldom 
get to open offices plumb on Wall 
Street. 

Bank of New York, whose 
telegraphic address is a simple 
BAXKONE, was founded in 17S4 
by Alexander Hamilton who 
later became the nation’s first 
Secretary of the Treasury. This 
date. Mr. Averett says makes an 
impact even in London, where 
the bank has a branch in Leadep- 
hall Street, and to reinforce it 
in people's minds. BN Vs New 
York phone number is 530-17S4. 
Amid the antique furnishings of 
the executive floor at the Wall 
Street headquarters, the bank 
has framed its first warrant, for 
S20.000 advanced to the Treasury 
in 1789. This was the opening 


instalment of a S200.000 loan, the 
first ever obtained by the U.S: 
Government 

“Werget blamed for starting 
the Federal deficit” said Mr. 
Averett, whose office features, an 
ISth century partners desk’ of- a 
quality rarely seen this side of 
the Atlantic.

New York's only bank, and until

Amid the flurry of foreign bank takeovers in the ILS- the Bank 
of New York, the eity’s oldest hank, appears a P 1 *?® ' 

iag. Snrii rumours, however, have been scotched nyimBmto. 
which though “marching with the parade.” accordlngto ■

banking -tread towards electronic gadgetry 

BNY claims to run its retail 
business at a profit *• 
tbe general experience of the 
New' York banking mdustg. Mr. 
Averett attributes this partly to 
well-placed branches.-. and partly 
16 the care they take not to look 
like further outgrowths of Wall 
Street Perhaps for this reason, 
BNY is still in two. minds about 
the growing trend towards, elec-, 
tronlc banking led by the indus- 
try giants who seek to. make 
banking more attractive to he 
public, and profitable to the 
banks themselves. 

“You could say we’re march- 
ing with the parade,” he said. 
But the Bank has yet to take 
any decisive steps of its own, 
fearing possible consumer resis- 
tance to electronic gadgetry in 
the touchy world of personal 
fl nance. 

Despite its strong ‘local '.in- 
terests, though. Bank of New 
York shares the concern of the 
giant Manhattan banks about the 
"high level of Government regula- 
tion of tbe hanking business. As 
current chairman of the Execu- 
tive Committee of the New York 
Clearing House Association. 
which represents the big banks* 


1820. all its accounts were kept 
in pounds, shillings and pence, 
while most of its business was 
conducted in foreign -currencies. 
Apart from financing trade. -the 
Bank's early growth came largely 
through personal and corporate 
trust services, an image which 
still lingers in the public mind 
even though this activity now- 
accounts for oniy an eighth of 
gross income. 

Today'. Bank of New York- is 
in many ways representative of 
that segment of the U.S. bank- 
ing Industry which has expanded 
abroad, often in the wake - of 
clients; but which cherishes its 
home base and community image' 
for the strong dollar-earniag 
ba?e it gives them. many, of 
BN Vs branches, for instance, 
are designed in English Colonial 
Style. with white painted 
weatherboarding and ’a. -dovecote . 
on lop. though there , may be a 
drive-in teller round tbe back. 
There are only three overseas 
branches. London. Singapore 
and the Cayman Islands. . 

BNY's main domestic activi- 
ties now revolve around cor- 
porate and retail . banking, 
following expansion ' in New 


interests. Mr. Averett babe* 
that deregulation would ioctti 
the efficiency— and. profitaiffl 
— of the banking system. 

” At the moment we baye r^ 
14,000 banks in the country* 3 , 
says. That’s far too many -w 
ticularly when you consider hi 
a fraction of that number on- 
age to. provide natlonvi 
services' in., say. Cahad£.v 
Britain 

Part of ’his concent ■ iivfe 
legislation currently 
through Congress 7 to iegufc ’ 
foreign banks in the 
set back rather than advancki 
danse of reform. This iCglsfeo ‘ 
will subject foreign hauls’ 
many of- the controls ' coved 
domestic banks. when it 
Have tackled- the problem- -fri 
tbe other end — by.gfrf 
domestic banks the same free* 
as foreign hanks. " . . 

However, Mr.. Averett am 
that when deregulation fln» 
domes. ..it wUl 'not -iuwessax 
produce, a stampede as the l 
bahks sweep across the cdubi 
gobbling up every small hafifc 
their . way.. For a start tigru 
deregulation would" come 
ally, probably by geogrS 
region. And even.ihen. tog-bar' 
wottid -have., difficulty acqnfii 
or merging because of the' at 
trust iaws. -\i - V\ 

• ' Smaller banks like histWh.- 
says. will be fn a better ppsfo 
to expand because there. irBK 
less doncern abouta reduction

Meanwhile, though; BNY see/ 
to- be managing pretty welLT 

improvement 'in spreads ;fa 
enabled it tb reverse the deefi ' 
in earnings last year, incet 
before . securities transactions; ' 
the; . .first half . was 81 7.7m. soi -

Syntex maintains 
growth in earnings 


BY OUR FINANCIAL STAFF 

THE STRONG upturn In earnings 
at Syntex Corporation, the 
pharmaceutical and animal health 
Foods firoup. was maintained in 
the fourth quarter, bringing an 
Increase in net earnings for the 
full year of 43 per cent to 853.Sin 
Or S2.90 a share against 81.83. 
Sales jumped from 8313.6m to 
S3Rl.lm. 

The fourth quarter returned 
earnings of Sl3.1m. a gain of 
50 per cent on ibe comparable 
period, following a gain of 54 per 
cent in tbe third quarter. 

The Board says that it will 
"Pek to recover some damages 
exceeding S3m from Philips XV 
which has terminated an agree- 
ment under which Syntex was to 
supply CT scanners to Philips 
for resale outside the U.S. 

Syntex says’ it will seek to 
recover damages from Philips 
which also claimed undefined 
damage? when it terminated the 


marketing agreement ... either 
through negotiation or through 
the arbitration procedures- pro- 
vided in the agreement. . 

The scientific and a medical 
instruments division which manu- 
factures the CT scanners suffered 
a decline in sales during 197S 
after focussing attention on the 
international market via the 
Philips agreement, a move 
prompted by the continued, 
deterioration of the U.S. mark® 
for the scanners. 

Because of the action by 
Philips and also of the staie'of 
the U.S. market for scanners. 
Syntex has increased its reserves 
for the writedown of assets and 
for the estimated lo^ in tbe 
scientific and medical instru 
ments section by- about S3.5m 
to about 36.3m for. -1978. Syntex 
describes the scientific and 
medical division' as “a small 
portion of its business." 


“Excellent 
Second Half” 

Mr. John D. Saville, Chairman, commenting on the 
results of the year to 30th April. 197S said: — 

"Tbe results shown below, whilst falling short 
of the record level -achieved to 30th April. 1977, 
are still I feel, commendable in view of the very 
difficult trading conditions experienced earlier in 
the year, resulting in pre-tax profits for the first 
6 months of only £202,035. ' 

"On the basis of the prevailing market con- 
ditions. the Board is confident that the current 
year will show a significant improvement in 
profitability."

Let's sUrl with Frankfurt. 

Why Ls Frankfurt so important? 

"Frankfurt ranks among the 
w orld's foremost banking and finan- 
cial centers. 152 German banking 
institutions operate here, and 
Frankfurt has 161 international 
banks, more than any other city 
in Continental Europe. 

The Bundesbank is headquar- 
tered here, and the Frankfurt Stock 
Exchange is Germany’s largest, 
accounting for nearly half of the 
stock exchange transactions, 57 per 
cent of dealings in foreign shares 
and 80 per cent of the business 
in foreign fixed-interest securities. 

Perhaps less well known inter- 
nationally is that Hessische Landes- 
bankis one of Frankfurt’s big 
native-born- banks. Half of Ger- 
many's top 10 banks are Frankfurt- 
based. We're one of them.*’ 

Now about the bank itself. 

Whafs its size and structure? 

“With total assets of DM42 billion, 
Hessische Lundesbank is Ger- 
many's Sih hugest bank, 3rd among 
Landesbanks. Asa government- 
backed regional bank, our liabilities 
are guaranteed jointly by the Stale 
of Hesse and its Spurkussen and 
Giro Association. We also act as 
banker to thc State of Hesse, from 
which our name is derived, and 
perform clearing functions for the 
52 regional Sparkasson." 




What about your sen ice facilities? 

“We concentrate on wholesale 
banking and medium to long-term 
fixed-rate DM lending. As a Ger- 
man universal bank, our facilities 
cover the lull range of commercial 
and investment banking services. 
Because we don't operate a branch 
network, we caii devote our lime 
and energy to wholesale banking 
activities. 

In recent years we have strength- 
ened our international investment 
banking capabilities considerably. 
For example, in 1977 we participated 
in 289 international issues. And 
we provide comprehensive invest- 
ment management and brokerage 
service*, including securities trading. 
Our membership of lhe Frankfurt 
Stock Exchange facilitates dealing 
in quoted shares and fixed-interest 
securities.'’ 

And sources of funds? 

"A large part oi our funding is 
done by issuing bearer bonds and 
SD Certificates (Scjiuldschein- 
dariehen). The total in circulation 
is more than DM 20 billion." 


Helaba F^otMos-tt' 

Hessische Landesbank -Girozenlrale- 


Who are the bank's main clients? 

“As a wholesale bank, our service 
facilities are tailored for large, 
internationally active curpor.it nms, 
tbreign govcmmcnis. and other 
financial institutions, as well as 
subsidiaries of international 
companies operating in Germany. 
As bankers to the Stale ot : lesse. 
we naturally support its state-wide 
and municipal program*. We also 
work closely with i iessc's Spar- 
kassen and their clients, especially 
on the foreign side." 

How do you see \our position 
developing intemafiuisulh ? 

"Frankly, a number uf German 
banks oiler similar high-qu.iliii 
services, and some «>i them have a 
head start on u*- in the international 
field. Without neglecting our home 
base in Frankfurt, we h.iv e assembled 
a team of banking prolessionals 
devoted to building a strong inter- 
national track record based on 
pragmatic banking principles, the 
most modem technical ami support 
facilities, and the highest standards 
of client service. Banking in Frank- 
furt is quite competitive, anil ihc 
banks who try harder lor their 
clients and give them last, personal 
serv ice often have the edge. This is 
one of our major objectives."

GRQUP LIMITED 

Interim Statement 

Unaudited profits amounted to £729,420 for 
the half year to 30th June, 1 978, compared 
wrth a loss of £431,908 for the first six months 
of the previous year. 

The Directors declare an Interim Dividend of 

12*%. 

Sales for the first half-year amounted to £23.85 
million showing an increase of 22% over the 
same period last year. The higher level of sales 
is continuing into the second. half and will be 
improved by the production now emanating 
from the new Cardiff radiator plant and by the 
improvements made to the French manu- 
facturing facility. 

Given continuance of the good industrial 
relations experienced in the first half, a further 
improvement in profitability should be seen in 
the second six months.

GOVERNMENT OF CHAD 
PRESELECTION OF BIDDERS 
SEDIGI-N'DJAMENA PIPELINE 

The Republic of Chad has applied for a credit from the International 
Development Association (IDA) and other aid agencies to help 
finance a petroleum development project supported by oil com- 
panies active in exploration in Chad. The project aims at meeting 
part of internal demand for oil products and consists of bringing 
into production one of the oil heating fields already discovered, 
of constructing a pipe line for cude transportation and of building 
a refinery in n’Djamena. 

The pipe line will link the Sedigi Field, situated on the northern part 
of Chad Lake about 250 km away from n'Djamena. to the refinery. 
It will be 350 km long, the diameter will be 6 inches or less to allow 
for a maximum annual flow of I million barrels of crude, without 
intermediate pumping stations under normal operation. However, 
since the crude has a high wax content, the line will be divided into 
several sections with scraper traps at the ends together with 
foundations for pumping equipment of temporary use. 

The route will cross semi-desert area without special points nor 
afrimctric difference between extremities Soil characteristics w ill 
facilitate ditching but adverse conditions may prevail for trucking 
and joining pipe line route, since no roads exist in the northern part 
of the route. 

Detail engineering — Following site investigation — supply/transporta- 
tion and laying of pipes, supply/transportation and implementation 
of all equipment, including cathodic protection and telecom system 
will be soon procured following international competitive bidding 
for a turn key contract extending to start-up and design flow 
operation together with a training programme for local operational 
teams. 

Potential engineering, suppliers and contractors who wish to be 
called for a joint offer, possibly extending a suppliers' credit, are 
invited to register their names, qualifications and references 
indicating who will lead their ioint venture, in a letter addressed to; 
Monsieur !c Ministry de I'Economie. d«i Plan et des Transports. 
Palais du Gouvernement, n'Djamena Tchad not later than September 
30, 1978.

(since June S. 1DT8) 

Pay lo day credit was a£am in 
sraod supply m the London monpy 
market yesterday and the 
authorities mopped *ip the 
.surplus by selling a moderate 
amount of Treasury hills all 
direct to the discount houses. 
This may have been slightly over- 
done with the likelihood of hanks 
carrylnc forward run down 
balanres to today. 

Discount houses were pay me 


Si -SI per rent for porinrd ran 
loans at »he jt.art and closinr 
haJance-; were taken between 7 
prr rent and 8} per cent. 

The market was fared with 
bank? bringing fnniard run dov- n 
bnlanres and a small nor takn-up 
or Treasury bills. On the other 
hand i here was a modest excess 
of Government disbursements 
nver revenue transfers to tile 
Exchequer and a small fail in the 
note circulation. 

In the interbank mark'd over- 

niphl loan? opened a» R ?-8i per 


cent and on news of a slight 
surplus! eased to S-Bl per cent. 
Bates soon firmed however lo 
Si-SJ per cent before e^sim; back 
to 7-7J per cent. With some de- 
mand for late balances, rates 
rinsed around 10. per cent. 
Activity now seems to have sub- 
sided jrenerally with little 
enthusiasm to take new positions 
ahead of what many people Fee 
ac nn inevitable October general 
election. 

Rate? In the table below are 
nominal hi SO me cases.

The report points out that 
cereal prices in world trade have 
already eddied or dropped in 
anticipation of a bigger supply 
be im; available. 

The food outlook report pre- 
dict smaller cereal trade needs 
in 15)76-79. because of the favour- 
able crop prospects in most im- 
porting counlriejL. It also fore- 
sees improving 'food supply 
prospects for many developing 
regions, with an expected sub- 
stantial boost ;in developing 
country cereal crops. 

Most of the prospective gain 
will be in wheat, notably in tbe 
Africa and Far East regions, 
which had accounted for most of 
1977's crop shortfalls. 

World wheat and coarse grain 
imports could decline after ad- 
vancing sharply to a record 
132.5m. tonnes in 1977-7S: the 
report notes. Total world im- 
ports could drop by 10m tonnes 
for 1978-70. Expected world rice 
trade of 9.0m tonnes for 1078 
would be 9 per cent under 1977s 
tqtati 

i. - 


Coarse grain export prices 
dropped by one-fifth in the four 
months ending in mid-August, 
reflecting ample exporters' sup- 
plies and slacqening import pros- 
pects. 

Wheat prices have- been rela- 
tively stable due lo a tighter 
prospective supply balance than 
for course grains and withdrawal 
of as much as 10.5m tonnes or 13 
per cent of U.S. wheat supplies.- 
under tbe three-year U.S. re- 
serve programme. 

Thai export rise prices eased 
8 per cent during July and mid- 
August to $365 per ton, but re- 
mained $90 over a year earlier.

BANGLADESH AGRICULTURE 


New role for women 
on the land 


AGRICULTURE IN Bangladesh 
may soon be given its biggest 
sh3ke-up for decades by tile 
intrusion of a new group of 
workers. At 50. their number is 
smaii, but that is not important. 
What is significant is that they 
are women. 

Tbe Agriculture .Ministry of 
Bangladesh is aboul to recruit 
50 women to its team of 
instructors which is a liule more 
than 4.000 strong and aU male 
10 dale. 

The Ministry hopes that with 
women members in the teams 
the country's agriculture will be 

able to make progress in 
important new areas such as fish 
farmim.’ and vegetable produc- 
tion. The women may also be 
able to help the country round 
a numher of important problems 
winch have slowed down the 
growth of agriculture. 

Women hardly figure ai all in 
Bangladesh labour statistics. As 
in xnanv developing countries, 
especially those where Islamic 
influence is predominant, their 
overall role in society is played 
down. Paradoxically, in certain 
areas the women’s influence is 
powerful. 

Paradoxically, in certain fields 
the influence of women is power- 
ful. They obviously have a 
formative role in shaping the 
young, and in agriculture they 
have a critical importance-— as 
officials found when they tried 
10 develop new programmes. 

The officials had the idea that 
Bangladesh’s 600.000 village 
ponds, covering 200.000 acres, 
could be used 10 breed fish and 
so provide a valuable source of 
food and protein for an under- 
nourished people. 

Given that even on a rough 


ST KEVIN RAFFERTY 

per capita basis Bangladeshis do 
not get enough to eat and are 
particularly deficient *fo protein, 
it seemed an especially sound 
idea. Breeding of tbe Nilotica 
curp imported from Thailand 
had proved prolific in tests, and 
the fish would help supplement 
the predominant diet of grain. 
Then it was found that looking 
after fish was traditionally work 
done by women. 

Other officials 3lso found. that 
Bangladesh's programme- of im- 
proved agricultural production 
was moving more slowly than 
hoped because of problems 
about the quality of seeds. The 
task of preserving seed also 
falls to women. 

Other jobs usually done by 
women include threshing and 
winnowing of rice, which is the 
country’s siaple die!, erowing 
veselahles and tending domestic 
animals. In each of the main 
areas of potential actvnneement 
for Bangladesh a°' ’eiilture. 
women are crucially involved. 

So. with the encouragement of 
President Ziaur Rahman, who 
recently directed thai women 
should be given at least 10 per 
cent OF the jobs in the labour 
force. Mr. Ohaidultah Khan, the 
Agriculture Secretary, gave the 
go-ahead. 

The potential repercussions 
and benefits from women work- 
ing officially in aari culture arc 
enormous, provided that the 
obvious, immediate difficulties 
can be surmounted. Although 
tbc Government's taking on 
women is a breakthrough, it 
remains to he seen how the 
instructors will get on with their 
male colleagues, and indeed, 
how they will be accepted in the 
fields. 

The numher of women instruc- 


tors taken on initially is tiny. 
Bangladesh has 65.000 villages 
and S4m people. 90 per cent of 
whom live in villages and 75 per 
cent of whom derive their liveli- 
hood from agriculture. 

If they are accepted, though. 
Bangladesh’s agriculture could 
grow quickly precisely because 
women, though not officially 
counted as members- of the 
labour force, do piay a vital part 
in agriculture and its support 
operations. 


Dynamic 


Perhaps more important, there 
would he an important, dynamic 
effect on society. Acceptance of 
women as workers would be 
important as a general principle. 
The roles carried out in lhc 
home by women mean trial the 
lessons would be picked up 
quickly l»y children nnd "the 
whole pattern of society could 
change rapidly. 

One example of the dynamic 
effects of this development is 
provided by a village u few 
hours' drive from Dacca, the 
capital of Bangladesh. In this 
village women were encouraged 
10 play a bigger part. No only 
did traditional agriculture grow 
faster, but new crops were tried, 
women's clubs were formed in 
which the principles of family 
planning were taught and 
attempts were made to get over 
longstanding caste barriers that 
affect even Muslim countries on 
the subcontinent. 

The women began to make 
jute goods and other handicrafts 
and progressed so well that last 
year they earned more than 
810.000 m exports with their 
cooris. 


Recipe found for shrimpers 9 waste 

BY WILLIAM CHISLETT MEXICO CITY, Sept 6. 


BY WILLIAM CHISLETT 

A JOINT British-Mexican 
scientific team has produced a 
nutritious substance from shrimp 
by-catch which could have 
important repercussions on fish- 
ing industries in . developing 
countries. 

Previously the shrimp by-catch 
(small fish brought up with the 
shrimps!, which accounts for up 
to SO per cent of what shrimp 
fishermen trawl up. had to be 
thrown away because it could 
not be pul to good use unless 
some was used for. animal fped.

with a kind of fish-cake made 
from shrimp by-catch which has 
been satisfactorily tested. 

It is cheap and has tbe advan- 
tage that it does not need to be 
refrigerated. As a result it could 
be transported inland to rural 
areas and its use need not be 
restricted to coastal zones. 

The product was tested on

.* “ New time “ dealings may lake place 
train 930 a.m. two business days earlier. 

Lead mu industrials managed to 
consolidate the previous day’s 
.sharp technical recovery despite 
continuing political uncertainly. 
Once again, trading was ai a low 
ebb. with potential investors con- 
tent to hold oft ponding today's 
half-yearly results from ICI and 
British Petroleum. 

The equity leaders tended a 
shade easier at the opening, bur 
the virtual absence of selling 
prompted a gradual improvement 
and by 2 pm the FT 30-share 
index was showing a rise of 1.6. 
Although not unexpected, news 
that the TUC had voted over- 
whelm inelv against the Govern- 
ment’s five per cent pay guide- 
lines tended to dampen sentiment 
in the late afternoon, while 
vague talk of a large funding 
ipMie In offing also nude Tor un- 
.•-/■tl lenient. As a result, the index 
slipped back in close uilhuut 
nl [era lion ai 503.5. 

. Elsewhere, in the equity sector, 
company news provided the 
nia it source of interest. Poor

panies. in partimlar. Sun Alliance, 
down 24 ai £i+p. made Tor 
maejeed dullness in this area The 
read in n was well illustrated bv 
the FT-Actuarios index for the 
subsection which Tell 2.3 per cent 
tb 128.34. Overall, however, the 
trend was to higher levels and 
rises led falls by about 11-4 in 
FT-quoted Industrials. 

Interest in British Funds again 
centred mainly on short-dated 
stocks. Cautious Press comment 
on the mid-August banking 
figures prompted a slightly easier 
opening trend in rhi« area of the 
market before scattered buving 
on yield considerations pushed 
prices higher to finish with net 
rises of i on balance The longer 
maturities were neglected, but 
followed in the wake oT the 
short® - early l»v.«ps uf ) were ibus 
recouped by the close. 

A varied and good -"red trade 
made for brisker dealings thjn 
oF late in investment currency 
with the result that the premium 
fluctuated between M2 and 00 J ner 
cent before settling a net ' lower 
at per cent. Yesterday’s C E 
conversion factor was 0.7030 
10.0977). 

Disappointing first-h3lf profit 
performances from the three 
major Composite companies which 
reported yesterday made for dull- 
ness in Insurances. interim 
figures from Sim Alliance were 
deemed especially disappointing 
and the shares fHI 24 to 53 +p, 
after 524p, while Phoenix dipped 
6 to 244p and GRE softened 4 to 
232p, after 232p. In sympathy 
elsewhere, Royals dipped 8 to 


370p, while General-:- Accident, 
222 p and Commercial Union, 149p. 
fell 6 and 3 respectively. ’ . 

Comment on the mid -August 
banking statistics helped the 
major dearine banks improve 
afresh. Barclays put on 6 more to 
3.130 and Lloyds added 3 at 2BSp 
as did Midland, at 338p. whiie 
NalWest closed the turn harder 
at 270 p. Leopold Joseph put tin

Rhodesian Government 
to meet black-rule date 


BY OUR FOREIGN STAFF 

THE RHODESIAN Government 
finally admitted yesterday that 
ft would now be administra- 
tively impossible to meet the 
December 31 target date for 
Ihe hand-over of power to a 
black government. 

At the same time, Mr. Ian 
Smith, the Prime Minister, 
promised the nation tough 
action in the wake or the 
killing by guerrillas of the 
survivors or last weekend's Air 
Rhodesia plaue crash. 

He did not spell out what 
measures lie was contemplat- 
ing. but be toid a hushed 
Parliament that they might 
upset Rhodesia's friends in the 
world. “ They have got to 
realise there is a limit beyond 
which we cannot go,” he said. 

“Wc cannot go on allowing 


ou r reasonableness to be mis- 
interpreted by others as 
weakness. They believe they 
have got us on the run and can 
push us around. 1 warn them 
they have seriously misjudged 
the case.” ■ 

Although Mr. Smith did 
describe the Government's 
promised action, there was 
speenlatiou that it might launch 
a revenge strike into neigh- 
1 jouring Zambia and Mozam- 
bique against guerrilla bases. 

.. Mr. Hollo Hayman, Joint 
Minister for Internal Affairs, 
told Parliament that it would 
be impossible to meet ibe 
December 31 hand-over date. 

The Government set np under 
Rhodesia's so-called Internal 
settlement last March has still 
to publish its Independence 


constitution. Mr. Hayman esti- 
mated that it would take at 
least four months from agree? 
meat on the constitution before 
a majority rule Government 
could come into being. 

The December 31 date bad 
been pyschologieally impor- 
tant for the Salisbury Govern- 
ment and Its deferral Is yet 
another severe blow to the 
credibility of the interim 
administration, which .has 
failed to stop the guerrilla war. 

Government officials have 
also acknowledged that It 
would be extremely difficult to 
conduct a free and fair elec- 
tion while large tracts of the 
country are under guerrilla 
control. 

Meanwhile, in London, Dr. 
David Owen, the British 
Foreign Secretary, yesterday 


delivered ah lltb-hour appeal 
for a spirit, of •• compromise 
among the parties to the 
Rhodesia dispute— but be 

offered no- real hope that such 
a compromise whs in prospect. 

Speaking to a meeting of the 
Royal Commonwealth Society, 
he said Britain was still work- 
ing for a round-table con- 
ference on Rhodesia and added 
that it would “be preferable 
to have a temporary ceaseHrc 
while negotiations continue.” 

If this was not possible then 
at the very least he would 
urge leaders on all sides to 
send out orders that “they 
will not tolerate incidents 
involving the loss of life of 
innocent civilians and that, if 
there are such incidents, those 
responsible would be brought 
to account.”

£ 10 . 5 m 
first half 
loss by 
Sun 

Alliance 

BY ADRIENNE GLEESON 


ALMOST £12m was wiped off 
the stock market capitalisation 
of Sun Alliance & London Insur- 
ance yesterday afternoon, when 
publication of the company's 
interim results . : showed the 
extent of its underwriting 
losses in the six months to the 
end of June. 

Against the. £2.Sm profit made 
on underwriting fire, accident 
and marine business in the first 
six months of 1977, Sun Alliance 
lost £10.5m in the first half of 
this year. 

Mr. W..G. Niven, one of the 
company’s general managers, 
said yesterday that losses were 
likely to continue into the 
second half of the year, but on 
a smaller scale. Nevertheless, 
the company's shares closed 24p 
down at 534p. 

After allowing for £1.4m 
profits on the long-term insur- 
busines. and investment 
income up 12.5 per cent at 
£29.7m. pre-tax profits for the 
first six months showed a decline 
of jnst under £10w at £20.7m. 

Jreraium income, up by 11 per 
cent at £26S.2i7i. reflected the 
effects of parity chaoses. If 
currencies had been stable the 
increase would have been nearer 
14 per cent 

Lord Aldington; chairman of 
Sun Alliance, told shareholders 
at the annual meeting In May 
that underwriting eimerience in 
ihe first miarter had been had 
because nf the severe weather, 
the firemens’ strike and the in- 
creased incidence of motor 
claims.

EXPRE5S NEWSPAPERS 
plans to launch the Daily Star 
• — a tabloid— on October 9 or 
16. 

The group's circulation 
managers have given notice to 
wholesalers Hint they would 
iike to distribute (lie new*- 
paper from one dt those dales. 

Time has been hooked with 
independent television com- 
panies for an advertising cam- 
paign to start on one of those 
two days. 

The paper is to lie published 
from Manchester and is 
intended to compete iu the 
Sun and Daily Mirror market, 
ralber than with the Daily 
Express. 

Mr. Derek Jameson, editor of 
tbe Daily Express, said Iasi 
night that a firm date bad not 
been decided for the launch 
bat the aim was to get the 
paper out as early as possible 
in October. 

One factor which will decide 
how soon the launch conn's will 
be agreement with unions. 

Earlier losses 

Mr. Jameson confirmed that 
Express is exploring the 
possibiiily of printing 50,000 
copies by facsimilte reproduc- 
tion in Inverness. Tbe campany 
has been negotiating with 
North Press, a recently-formed 
printing business in the town. 

The north of Scotland and 
Aberdeen were areas in which 
the Daily Express lost circula- 
tion heavily after it withdrew 
from priming in Glasgow. 

Now it has to fly copies of 
ihct paper from Manchester to 
Lossiemouth in order to pre- 
vent further losses to the Daily 
Record — owned by Mirror 
Group Newspapers and printed 
ui Glasgow — and The Sun.

“ We are hopig that, with Ihe 
support of the Highlands and 
Islands Development Board, we 
can trv fascimile printing in

Jameson added. 

“We are looking at produc-
