WASHINGTON — ' US. offi- 
riate haw acknowledged that three 
US. nnlilary officers traveled oq a 
C-L30 aircraft to Malta with Egyp- 
tian commandos who carried put 
an assault on a hijacked EgyptAir 
jetliner on Nov. 24. 

Hey said Sunday that the senior 
U.S. military official on the flight 
was General Robert Wiegand, who 
oversees U.S. military programs in 
E&pt. 

. -But the officials, who asked not 
to fae named, said the US. officers 
who accompanied the Egyptians 
were not specialists m counterter- 
rorism and did not take, part in the 
effort to retake the aircraft 

two US. olfcers were in Malt&at 
the time of the assault A total of 50 
persons were killed dating die hi- 
jacking. 57 of (ham m the assault 

The U.S.. officers were sent pri- 
marily as a gesture of political sup- 
port for the Egyptians, administra- 
tion officials said. “These three 
men represented United States 
moral support for Egypt” said a 
high-rankiii« official 

Tbe U.S. account was in sharp 
contradiction to one provided on 
Sunday by a senior Maltese official 
in Malta who said that U.S. officers 
helped coordinate the assault by 
the Egyptian commandos. 

The administration has not offi- 
cially disclosed the presence of the 
U.S. officers in Malta. A Stale De- 
partment spokesman declined Sun- 
day to comment on the presence of 
the officers or other operational 
details of the mission. U.5. officials 
spoke on Sunday only after reports 
from Malta about the presence of 
Ihe officers. 

According to accounts provided 
by administration officials; Egypt 
asked for US. support immediately 
after the hijacking of the Egyptian 
airliner began. Behind the Egyp- 
tian request, the officials said, was 
concern that the hij acjring might fie 
port of a larger Libyan action 
against Egypt. 

The officials said that the admin- 
istration took a number of actions 
to support Egypt A decisi o n was 
n«dg to send the US. counterter- 
rorism Delta Force from Fort 
Bragg. New Carolina, to a North 
Atlantic Treaty Organization base 
at Sigonefla, Sicily. 

But administration officials fdt 
that there might not' be enough 
rime for the UJ5. unit to act It was 
therefore decided that the U.S. role 
would be to assist the Egyptians in 
carrying out their own rescue mis- 
sion. 

The aircraft carrier Coral Sea 
was instructed to provide air cover 
for the Egyptian C-130 that carried 
the Egyptian commandos to Malta 


Stock Crisis 
In Singapore 
Is Widening 

By Francis Daniel 

Reuters 

SINGAPORE — The crisis cm 
the Stock Exchange of Singapore 
spread Monday, with official trad- 
ing suspended indefinitely in Kuala 
Lumpur, Malyasia. Markets in 
Hong Kong and London also were 
affected. 

The Singapore exchange an- 
nounced Sunday that it was sus- 
pending trading indefinitely fol- 
lowing the collapse of a major 
industrial group. The exchanges in 
Singapore and Malaysia are dosefy 
linked 

The crisis, set off when Pan-Hec- 
iric Industries Ltd. was put into 
receivership, with debts of 390 mil- 
lion dollars ($186.6 million), is ex- 
pected to further dampen Singa- 
pore's economy, which has been 
forecast to shrink by 2 percent this 
year. 

The dosings of the stock ex- 
changes could affect several inter- 
national stockbrokages, a senior in- 
vestment analyst in Singapore 
warned. 

The c hairman of the Singapore 
Slock Exchange, OngTjin An, said, 
“The decision to suspend trading 
was taken to cod off the market 
and for the public to digest the 
news" of Pan-Electric’s problems. 

Concern about Pan-Electric’s 
problems also spilled over into 
Hong Kong, where share prices fell 
sharply Monday. The Hang Seng 
index lost 22 points, to end at 
1 ,694.57. News of the market sus- 
pensions also prompted wide- 
spread idling Monday by compa- 
nies with interests in East Asia on 
the London Stock Exchange. 

Pan-Electric, with holdings in 
shipping, property and electrical, 
manufacturing, has 68 subsidiaries 
in Hong Kong, Bermuda, Brand, 
Malaysia and Britain. 

Some Singaporean officials 
questioned ibe wisdom of the mar- 
ket suspensions. They said they 
fear that when the market reopens,

— in case of a Libyan attack. To do 
this, F-18 aircraft from the carrier 
flew to the base at SSganella so that 
they would be close to Malta, an 
adminis tration official said. 

In addition, it was decided in 
Washington that U&xriEtaiy per- 
sonnel should accompany the 
Egyptian commandos. This deci- 
sion was taken after Egypt's de- 
fense minister, Abdel Haum. Abu 
Ghazala, told the US' ambassador 
to Egypt, Nicholas A. VeHotes, that 
Egypt.wasted sons; form of Ameri- 
can presence as a gesture of sup- 
port, according to U.S. officials. 

“The idea never was that these

and they didn’t,” said an adminis-

Sakharov 9 s Wife Leaves Russia for Italy 



Yelena G. Bonner at a 
Moscow airport Monday. 


United Pros International 

ROME — Ydena G. Bonner, the 
wife of- the Soviet dissident Andrei 
D. Sakharov, arrived here Monday 
for medical treatment in Italy be- 
fore going on to the United States. 

Mrs. Bonner, 62, arrived from 
Moscow aboard an Alitalia flight. 

During a stopover in MBan, Mrs. 
Bonner said that she could not 
speak about her husband, who has 
been in internal exile in the city of 
Gorki, 250 mi1« (400 kilometers) 
east of Moscow, for nearly six 
years, because she “absolutely 
must return home." 

She had said when she left Mos- 
cow that she had promised Soviet 
authorities that she would not talk 
with journalists during her stay 
abroad. 

Mrs. Bonner was met in Milan 


by her son by a former marriage; 
Alexei Semyonov, a computer sci- 
entist, and her son-in-law, Efrem 
Yankdevkh, who live in Newton, 
Massachusetts. 

. “I can only talk about my 
health,” she said doling the stop- 
over. “I have come for treatment 
for my eyes and my heart after 
having a major heart attack." 

■ Vow of Silence 

WUEamJ. Eaton of the Los Ange- 
les Tones reported from. Moscow: 

Mrs. Bonner said she had agreed 
notnrmeet the press in return for a 
Soviet govemnnsut guarantee that 
she would be allowed to return to 
her husband. 

It was a bargain that allowed 
Mrs. Banner togo to both Italy and 
the IMied Stales far medical care.

Airline Incentive Plans Hit Turbulence 

Government, Business Criticize Trequent Flier 9 Benefits 


By Ralph Blumenthal 
New York Times Sendee 

NEW YORK — Kenneth S. Kramer had no sooner 
checked in for a new airline’s inaugural flight, from 
Washington to Hartford. Connecticut, last month 
than a ticket clerk banded him a blue booklet and 
pressed two fresh ink stamps onto the first page. 

Instantly, Mr. Kramer, a lawyer, became a Presi- 
dential Airways “Frequent Flyer with 200 points — a 
fifth of the way to '‘Award Level A” for a free 
upg rading ro ftrst-dass or three-month membership in 
the airline’s “Oval Office” V.LP. flight dub. 

But after almost five years of unbridled growth, the 
airline promotional programs that reward frequent 
fliers have come turner hostile scrutiny and legal 
attack by government and basmess. Increasingly, crit- 
ics question why such benefits escape taxation and 
why companies that often pay the travel bills are 
barred from reaping the benefits. 

The government has moved to circumvent this ban 
by insisting that federal employees use benefits they 
may earn on official travel for future business trips. 

“It's a fighting issue," said Leigh Kimball, vice 
president for sales and marketing at Ask Mr. Foster, a 
chain of travel. agencies that does a growing business 


helping companies keep track of benefits being accu- 
mulated by their employees. 

Widely regarded as the most successful promotion 
in air Hue Moray, frequent flier programs award more 
than seven million members boons points toward free 
round-the-world tickets, rental car and hotd discounts 
and other benefits. The programs are open to Ameri- 
cans and foreigners alike. 

They have transformed spending and mar k e ti n g 
patterns and have become a potent competitive weap- 
on of air carriers out to instill brand loyalty in their 
customers. They have become anew way for airlines to 
collect valuable information about these customers 
and to communicate with them. They have fostered a 
new travel specialty; monitoring frequent flier bonus 
miles. And they have even created their own gray 
market of benefit brokers and traders: 

But they also have provoked opposition and raised 
these questions, among others: .. 

• Do the awards constitute a form of income that 
the airlines should report to the Internal Revenue 
Sendee?. 

• Do the progrtuns promote inefficiency by encour- 
aging b usin ess travelers to fly roundabout routes, paid

“Thank God it’s all over,” Gen-

Publicity Assists Polish Surgeon 

Heart Transplants Draw Attention, Much-Needed Supplies 


By Jackson Diehl 

Woshuigtat Port Service 

ZABRZE, Poland — Dr. Zbigniew Rdiga arrived 
here a year ago determined to transform this city’s 
a ging hospital into a cardiology clinic that would set a 
new standard for Poland's beleaguered health system. 

It was not a task for a cautious man. Dr. Rdiga, a 
heart surgeon, began with three hand-picked special- 
ists and five experienced nurses, and coaxed about $15 
million in donations from factories in the surrounding 
Silesian industrial bed. 

But his clinic could not surmount the chronic trou- 
bles of all Polish hospitals: shortages of drugs, ambu- 
lances, cl eaning staff and even basic sanitary 

equipment. 

Then last month. Dr. Rdiga, 47, took the step he 
knew would get him attention: He performed two 
heart transplants, the first in Poland since a failed 
attempt in 1969. 

One of his two patients died. Bat within a week, 
supplies were pouring into bis aging, Spartan facility, 
and the local Communist Party secretary called to 
promise that cleaning personnel would oe detailed 
from factories. 

“It was one of the reasons I did the heart trans- 
plant,” the doctor said on a recent morning between 
bypass operations. "Now I have all the drags I want.” 

"That’s so typical of Poland,” added a colleague, 
Dr. Jerzy Wdczylc. “You do something interesting 
and only then you get some attention.” 

Although he scheduled its first heart operation only 
three months ago. Dr. Rdiga’s dime now aims to 
outstrip the combined performance of all the other 
cardiology facilities in Poland. The four surgeons, 
working at the rate of one major operation a day, 
already have performed 120 open-heart operations 
and have a waiting list of 200. 

"Our goal," Dr. Rdiga said, "is to create a cardiolo- 
gy clinic as good as the average facility in Western 
Europe.” 

The dizzying speed of the project's development 


and the stagnation m more esta b lish e d facilities reveal 
the extremes of a hospital system that is piobaMythe 
most erratic in Eastern Europe. 

For many Poles, health care — more than job 
conditions, material supplies or even bousing — is the 
atest frustration of daily life and rise symbol of the 
lures of their state-run social services. 

Even I>. Rdiga’s record, cdd>ratedasa triumph by

Dirt and the risk of infections are only the begin- 
ning of the problems patients confront Poland has the 
lowest number of hospital beds per head of population 
in Eastern Europe, and places are so short that pa- 
tients not in critical condition sometimes must wart a 
month or more for surgery. With regular wards al- 
ready crammed to double capacity, many of those 
admitted are quartered in hallways and bathrooms. 
Food has to be brought to many patients by their 
relatives. 

Drags are so scarce in some clinics that up to 40 
percent of supplies come from donations provided by 
the Roman Catholic mH foreign organiza-

common horrors came last August with the deaths in a

General Dynamics, NASA Head Indicted in Fraud 


Compiled by Ovr Staff From Ddpauka 

WASHINGTON — General

Monday, along with James M. 
Beggs, now the administrator of 
NASA, and three other present or 
former executives of the company.

charged with frying to defraud the 
gove rnment of milling, of dollars 
on the Sergeant York anti-aircraft 
gun, the Justice Department said. 

General Dynamics, the thiid- 
largest U.S. military contractor, 
and the four men were charged 
with conspiring to reduce losses on 
an army contract to build the pro- 
totype gun systems by illegally mis- 
chaiging contract expenses to other 
government-funded accounts. 

The seven-count indictment was 
returned in federal court in Los 


individuals and the corpora- 
tion were charged with one count 
each of conspiring to defraud the 
Department of Defense between 
January 1. 1978, and Aug. 31, 1981. 
They also were charged with six 
counts of making false statements. 

Mr. Beggs became head of the 
National Aeronautics and Space 
A dminist ration on July 10, 1981. 

A gover nm ent source raid $7.5 

million was utischaigcd, ^wring a 

$3j 2 ntiHioa loss to the government. 

The Sexgeant York, also known 
as DIVAD for Divis ion Air De- 
fense weapon system, was a gun 


mounted on a tank and was de- 
signed to protect tank* and infan- 
try against enemy aircraft. 

If convicted, the corporation 
(aces a maximum fine of $10,000 
cm each of the seven counts. The 
individuals face mariamm sen- 
tences of five years in prison and 
510,000 fines on each count. 

General Dynamics and Ford 
Aerospace Corp. competed for the 
final contract for the the Sergeant 
York. Ford Aerospace won. But 
the later versioas of the weapon did 
not work and, in August, Defense 
Secretary Caspar W. Weinberger 
canceled the order. 

At that paint, the Pentagon had 
already spent SIB billion of a 
planned $6.8 trillion. 

In addition to Mr. Beggs, .the 
indictment named as defendants: 

Ralph E. Hawes, Jr., a corporate 
vice president and general manager 
for General Dynamics who helped 
run the anti-aircraft program at the 
company's division in Pomona, 

California. 

David L. McPherson a General 
Dynamics employee who (Erected 
the anti-aircraft program. 


Janus G Hansen, Jr., a General 
Dynamics employee who was assis- 
tant program director. 

According to the indictment, the 
company officials fraudulently 
charged several million dollars 
worm of expenses on the contract 
as "bid and proposal” and inde- 
pendent research and development 
expenses. 

They did litis, die indictment 
said, to reduce multiimllioQ-dollar 
losses on the com pan ds $40 mil- 
lion army contract for the produc- 
tion of the Sergeant York proto- 
type systems. 

Contractors are reimbursed by 
the Department of Defense tor 
those two types of expenses, but 
they are not permitted to use the 
funds for work required by an ex- 
isting contract

Ver, Others Acquitted 
In Aquino Murder Case; 
Foes Condemn Verdict 


(Continued from Page 1) 

didacy to oppose Mr. Marcos in a 
presidential election Feb. 7. 

“Now that the verdict is out, the 
Filipino people can Fully under* 
stand why I said from the very 
beginning that justice is not possi- 
ble $o long as Mr. Marcos contin- 
ues to be head of our government,'’ 
'Mrs. Aquino said Monday. She has 
said she believed that Mr. Marcos 
was the “No. 1 suspect” in the 
murder. 

Salvador H. Laurel another can- 
didate for president, vowed to re- 
open the case if he were dected. He 
was reported to have said that Mir. 
Aquino “has in effect been assassi- 
nated anew by this ghastly ver- 
dict." 

The court supported the mili- 
tary’s contention that Mr. Aquino 
was killed by Rolando C. Galman, 
a lone gunman who was possibly 
working for the Communists, ana 
not by a military conspiracy. 

Mr' Aquino was shot Aug. 21, 
1983, as he arrived at Manila air- 
port after three years of self-im- 
posed exile in the United States. 
Mr. Galman was killed immediate- 
ly afterward. 

The 26 defendants, all but one of 
them soldiers, were also cleared of 
involvement in the wnrfe of Mr. 
Galman. 

All of the defendants pleaded 
not guilty when the trial began in 
February. General Ver and seven 
other military men faced posable 
40-year sentences on charges of be- 
ing accessories to the murder. Sev- 
enteen other soldiers charged as 
principals faced the death penalty, 
and one civilian charged as an ac- 
complice faced life imprisonment. 

Testimony in the eight-month 
trial, which followed 1 1 months of 
hearings by a fact-finding board, 
did not settle the many questions 
surrounding the assassination. It 
also led to a widespread sense of 
cynicism about the proceedings. 

Several witnesses, including 
friends of Mr. Galman and mem- 
bers of his famil y, and airline em- 
ployees who had said they wit- 
nessed the shooting, disappeared 
before or after giving testimony. 

In reaching their rffriann, the 
judges dismissed as of “dubious 
character” the testimony of Rebec- 
ca Qugano, who was the only pros- 
ecution witness to say she had seen 
a soldier kill Mr. Aquino. The pros- 
ecution relied on her testimony in 
asserting in its concluding state- 
ment that one of the soldiers killed 
Mr, Aquino with a pistoL

The San Francisco Examiner as 
saying she was offered a Philippine 
government-inspired bribe by an 


Monday, Mr. 
rtheeleo- 


mtennediary to change her testi- 
mony at the trial, The Associated 

Press reported Tuesday .] 

Well before the trial neared its 
coprJnqVtn , the court had excluded 
several potentially idling pieces of 
evidence: 

Most crucial was its ruling, sup- 
ported by the Soprano Court, that 
testimony by General Ver before 
the fact- finding board could not be 
ji/tmiimH as evidence: This was the 
primary evidence of the charge that 
General Ver had engaged in a cov- 
er-up. 

After midnight 
Marcos called formally for 
lion by signing a parliamentary bill 

that sets a vote for preadent and 

vice president IS months before the 
expiration of his six-year term. 

■ Criticism by Washington 

In questioning the verdict, the 
U.S. State Department dted the 
conclusions of the earlier fact-find- 
ing board, headed by Corazon J. 
Agrava, Renters reported. 

Charles E Redman, a State De- 
partment spokesman, said that the 
Agrava commission, which he 
termed a “board of respected, inde- 
pendent-minded” Philippine citi- 
zens, had “refuted" the govern- 
ment claim that Mr. Aquino was 
lrfiiarf by Mr. Galman. 

“It is very difficult to reconcile 
the exemplary, thorough work of 
the Agrava board, and the conclu- 
sions it reached after a year of hard 
work, with the outcome of this tri- 
al” Mr. Redman said. 

The State Department also ques- 
tioned the reinstatement of Gener- 
al Ver as chief of staff. 

“How the reinstatement squares 
with President Marcos’s professed 
desire to initiate serious reforms.” 
Mr. Redman said, “is a question 
only he can answer.” 

Senator Richard G. Lugar, an 
In diana Republican who is chair- 
man of the Senate Foreign Rela- 
tions Committee, said the derision 
did not “contribute to the dying 
need for credibility in the Philip- 
pines government nor does it an- 
swer the need for reform and reor- 
ganization of the military.” 

Alan Cranston, a California 
Democrat and assistant Senate mi- 
nority leader, said that the verdict 
would “hurt democracy in the Phil- 
ippines, bin American security in- 
terests and help only the Commu- 
nists.” 

Representative Stephen J. So- 
larz, a New York Democrat who is 
chairman of the House Subcom- 
mittee on Asian and Pacific Af- 
fairs, called on the Reagan admin- 
istration to suspend military aid to 
the Philippines as long as General 
Ver remained as chief of staff.

Judith Miller of The New York

who were Kllcd in (he assault at

Frequent Flier Plans Hit Turbulence 


(Continued from Page 1) 

for by their employers, to accumulate mileage points 
for personal benefit? 

• Are the programs a form of bribery in which die 
airlines seek to influence business travelers who spend 
their company’s travel dollars? 

American Airlines offered the first program in May 
1981 wwid the early uncertainties of airline deregula- 
tion. It was a time when some new carriers, free of 
unprofitable rente structures and Hi gh labor costs, 
were successfully challenging the hegemony of the 
airline giants. 

“We realized we had to do something that recog- 
nized and rewarded our better customers.” said Frank 
J. IK Nuzzo 3d, vice president for sales promotion at 
American. Consequently, the airline's pioneering 
“AAd vantage Program” awarded prints to 

registered passengers for every flight taken on the 
carrier. The accumulated prints could then be re- 
deemed for free tickets and other benefits. 

A key Feature of the promotion and others hurriedly 
begun by competitors was that the benefits could not 
be transferred to a corporation, even if it paid for the 
ticket. 

Today, all 12 major can i ns in the United States, 
most of the nearly 100 regional and commuter airlines 
and many foreign airlines offer frequent flier pro- 
grams nnHw one name or another. Typically, Presi- 
dential Airways, which began regional service Oct 10 
out of Washington’s Dulles International Airport, 
began signing up frequent fliers with its very first 
fUghts. 

Many airlines cot in dir e ct route competition have 
teamed up to honor one another’s programs. Far 
example, bonus prints *nr»tpmiai»d on Trans World 


flight 

Eastern Amines and vice versa. There are mnrilar tie- 
ins with car rental agencies and hotel rfiafns. 

The exact number of those enrolled is the airimes 1 
secret, as is the number of chose who have reaped 
awards. Mr. Di Nuzzo said that American had rimed 
up more than three ntiflywi members, and travel ex- 
perts estimate the industry total at more than seven 
mill ion Fewer than half, however, are estimated to be 
active members, and only a small minority would do 
enough traveling to qualify for die top awards. - 

Frequent Flyer magazine, a publication of the Offi- 
cial Airline Guides not directly related to the airline 
promotions, found m a recent survey of its readers that 
99 percent of 17,000 respondents were enrolled in at 
least one frequent flier program. 

But increasingly, the programs have been coming 
under scrutiny and criticism. 

According to Representative Harold E Ford, 
Tennessee Democrat on the House Ways and Means 
Committee, frequent flier programs cost US. compa- 
res 5 percent to 7 percent extra in their travelbudgets, 
which totaled $66.5 billion last year. 

What mokes the programs so difficult to combat, 
the congressman and other critics have noted, is the 
fact that many of the beneficiaries are high-level 
business executives who set company poBcy. 

Mr. Ford introduced a bill in April that would for 
the first time require the airlines to report to die 
In tonal Revenue Service each year the names of those 
who received benefits and the dollar value of the 
awards. The IRS has said for several yean that it was 
considering whether to strengthen its own reporting 
requirements in this area. 


with a s**t«ncn* made at a news plane and its immediate surround- 
conference by President Hosni Mu- ings said they had found two gre- 
barak of Egypt- He said the United nades, which they believed were of 
States, Britain, and France had of- Soviet origin, aboard the plane, 
fered hdp co deal with the hijack- The investigators have also found 
ing, but Egypt had refused. 

On Sunday, a Maltese official 
confirmed that Malta had declined 
to permit anti-terrorism experts 
and listening equipment from the 
US. Delta force to land in a mili- 
tary aircraft. Malta finally gave 
permission for the experts from S- 
■ gonella to land in a private aircraft, 
bat the ^jprqval came too late, the 
' Maltese official said. 

The experts and their equipment 
were in the air ea route to Malta 
when the. Egyptian commandos 
stormed the plane. The team 
turned back when it learned the 
MMnit bad begun and never ar- 
rived in Malta, the official said. 

The hstaimg equipment would 
have enabled the team to identify 
the exact location of the hijackers 
in theaircraft, a source in Washing- 
ton said. 

The involvement of senior U.S. 
military officers in rite operation 
raises additional questions about 
the conduct of the assault, Maltese 
and other sources said. A~- senior 
Maltese official asked why the 
Americans, who had reportedly 
trained the Egyptian forces in 
Egypt, had not brought die equip- 
ment they needed for such an as- 
sault with them from Cairo. . 

Questions are also being raised 


at least two of the weapons used by 
the hijackers, which the sources de- 
scribed as of Czechoslovak origin. 
They said that the bullets used by 
the hijackers, based on their analy- 
sis of tire bullets taken from passen- 
gers who were shot, were 38-cali- 
ber and had less than tire normal 
amount of gunpowder in them 
Either the hijackers purposely re- 
moved some powder from the bul- 
lets before the hijacking so that 
Lhey would not pierce the plane’s 
shell when fired, or the hijackers 
had bought cheap bullets, the 
sources said, in either case, a 
source close to the investigation 
said, the small amount of gunpow- 
der in the bullets may help explain 
why most of the passengers shot by 
the hijackers survived. 


Egypt Lets Some Troops 
Near Libya Take Leave 


Reuters 

CAIRO — Egypt has signaled an 
i»asing of tension on its border with 
Libya by allowing some troops to 
take leave, military sources said 
Monday. 

The sources said that officers be- 
gan to rotate on 48-hour home 
leave for the first time since an 
armed alert was called after the 
hij ackin g Of an Egyptian airliner to 
Malta. Egypt has charged Libya 
with involvement in the Nov. 23 
hij acking but Libya has denied it 

“The start of leave indicates 
things are slowly returning to nor- 
mal'* one source said. 

Egyptian officials had said bor- 
der security was stepped up for 
defensive purposes after the hijack- 
ing. They denied Libyan charges 
that Cairo was preparing for war. 

Syria said Monday that anyone 
considering an attack on Libya 
would have to face the combined 
strength of the two countries. 

Abdel Halim Kb ad dam. Syria’s 


vice president for political and for- 
eign affairs, issued the warning in a 
statement to JANA the Libyan 
news agency, after arriving in Lib- 
ya for a visiL 

“We are warring those who arc , 
thinking of attacking Libya that * 
they will be confronted with Lib- 
ya's and Syria's capabilities togeth- 
er simultaneously. Mr. Khaddnm 
was quoted as saying. 

Egypt, meanwhile, is preparing 
for talks with Israel on the disputed 
Sinai coastal strip of Taba. 

The talks are scheduled to re- 
sume here Tuesday for the first 
time since they were suspended by 
Cairo to protest Israel's Oct. 1 air 
raid against Palestinian targets 
near Tunis. 

Foreign Minister Esmat Abdel 
Meguid met with the Egyptian del- 
egation to the talks, headed by 
Abdel Halim BadawL and also with 
tbe UjS. team that will attend as 
observers.

U.S. Reportedly to Question Israelis 


(Coetmned from Page 1) 

issued a qualified statement of 
for Israeli involvement in 
Pollard spying case. 

A number of questions remained 
unanswered, however. Among 


and technology developments from 
the public record and other nonse- 
cret sources. 

Israeli sources said that IE- 
KEM, under Mr. Eitan’s direction, 
gradually evolved into an indepen- 
dent annex to the traditional Israeli 


them were whether the spying apex- in trffi gence network, heart e d by the 
ation reached high levels of the Mossad.

coordinated with tbe Israeli Em- 
bassy in Washington or was, as 
claimed by Israeli government offi- 
cials, part of an unauthorized intd- 
h genoe ncfwutk operating indepen- 
dently under tbe direction of Mr. 
Eitan;an<Fhow extensive are espio- 
nage activities allegedly carried out 
byLEKEM. 

LEKEM long has been fisted 
openly in in . Israeli government 
agency directories, and has routine- 
ly posted its employees to foreign 
capitals to gather data cm science 


American Jewish leaders, who 
are meeting here, rallied befamd Is- 
rael on Mriaday after the govern- 
ment’s qualified apology to the 
United States over the espionage 
case. After private talks with Mr. 
Pats, they said that they consid- 
ered the matter dosed and that 
publicity would soon subside. 

Tbe Jewish leaders said they 
were not disturbed by what they 
conceded was a long Kst of unan- 
swered questions surrounding the 
rase. Nor did they fed that Israeli 
intdligenoe operatives had jeopar- 


dized the standing of the American 
Jewish community by apparently 
recruiting an American Jew, Mr. 

Pollard, for a spying mission in his 
own country. 

Julios Berman, former head of 
tire Conference of Presidents of 
Major American Jewish Organize- Kong to raise cash, 
tions, said Monday that it was “ob- “The retreat was widespread as

gaponc and Malaysian suspensions 
to last up to a week. 

“Once you dose, there is never a 
good time to open. Share prices are 
definitely going to slide,” a senior 
bank official in Singapore said. “A 
prolonged closure will worsen mar- 
ket sentiment." 

But stockbrokers generally wel- 
comed the suspension of both ex- 
changes because it prevented panic 
selling and a possible collapse of 
the stock market. 

Brokers and bankers in Singa- 
pore and Malaysia said a number 
of small er companies tied to Pan- 
Bee trie might be forced to close if 
banks did not bail them out 

The Singapore exchange sus- 
pended trading in Pan-Electric and 
two of its related companies Nov. 
19, and the Straits Tunes Industrial 
Index has since lost nearly 70 
points, to 691.81 Friday. 

Hoog Kong stockbrokers said 
prices were forced lower as Singa- 
pore interests sold shares in Hong 


nage did take place in Washington 
— was coordinated in advance with 
U.SL officials. 

Howard M. Squadron, another 
past preadmt of the conference, 
said: “We live in a television age, 
and we are so inundated with infor- 
mation that our memories have 
gotten a lot shorter than they used 
to be. You can’t realty recall any- 
thing for more than a week." 


Kong. 

[In Singapore, another broker 
said: “The whole affair has left us 
numb. Almost every investor just 
wants to gel ont of the market,” 
Age nee France-Presse reported 
from Singapore.] 

The suspensions do not spell the 
end of buying and setting. Traders 
can still come together in the so- 
called “gray,” or unsupervised 
market.

CARTAGENA Colombia — 
The Organization of American 
Stales opened a special session here 
Monday aimed at rewriting its 
charter and giving the 37-year-old 
body increased efficiency to deal 
with, regional conflicts, diplomats 
said. 

The three-day meeting is bang 
held just before the 32-nation orga- 
nization’s annual general assembly. 

The U.S. secretary of state, 
Gouge P. Shultz, was to address 
the opening session Monday. 

The OAS reforms to be consid- 
ered include a plan to give the sec- 
retary-general, Jo So Clemente 
Baena Soares of Brazil, executive 
powers modeled on those held by 
the United Nations secretary-gen- 
eral. 

The meeting and the annual con- 
ference, to be attended by 350 dele- 
gates, are to last 10 days. 

Foreign Minister Augusto Ra- 
mirez Ocampo of Colombia said 
Sunday that the OAS was ready to 
adopt decisions regarding its work- 
ing principles. 

“This is not only a 72-hour meet- 
ing but the culmination of 12 years’ 
study to see whether member coun- 
tries have the political will to build 
a strong and effective OAS,” he 
said. 

, However, diplomats doubted the 
planned overhaul would occur at 
the Cartagena meeting. They noted 
(hat the lack of political will that 
led to the setting up of the Conta- 
dora group in 1983 remained a 
problem. 

The Contadora group, made op 
of Mexico, Panama, Colombia ana 
Venezuela, is trying to settle differ- 
ences between Nicaragua and its 
U.S.-backed neighbors. 

Nicaragua has said it win not 
sign any pact until the United 
States halts its support for rebels 
fighting to overturn Managua’s 
leftist government 

■ US. Will Continue Rebel Aid 

Mr. Shultz said Sunday that the 
United States would indefinitely 
continue funding Nicaraguan re- 
bels. the Los Angeles Times report- 
ed from George Town in the Cay- 
man Islands. 

Mr. Shultz, traveling to the OAS 
meeting, suggested Sunday that the 
United States would continue 
funding the rebels even if the Cen- 
tral American countries signed a 
peace treaty. 

"Our commitment is indefinite.** 
Mr. Shultz said. “It's just going to 
go on.”

Yelena V. Kaplan, whose American husband has filed for divorce, in a Moscow park. 

Russian Woman Contests U.S. Divorce 

Ostracized by Her Family, She Fears Being Left ^Helpless’ 


By Philip Taubman 

New York Tima Service 

MOSCOW — like other Russians married to 
Americans bat barred for years from joining them in 
the United States, Yelena V. Kaplan was canght 
between two cultures. 

After marrying Gary D. Kaplan in 1978 whOe he 
was studying Russian in Moscow, Mrs. Kaplan was 
ostracized by her family and friends. 

She says she corresponded regularly with her bus- 
band, who, like his father, changed his last name to hia 
grandparents’ name, Talanov, several years ago. He 
returned to California shortly after their marriage 
when his student visa expired, she said, and they often 
spoke go the telephone. 

Then, four months ago, Mrs. Kaplan’s case took a 
turn that she said became particularly painful in 
recent weeks as some at the other 20 or so Russians 
who have been separated from American spouses 
received word that they would get exit visas. 

On July 29, after not hearing from her husband for 
several months, Mis. Kaplan received a U.S. court 
document in the mail. 

It was a petition for divorce, eating irreconcilable 
differences, filed by her husband in superior coart in 
Auburn, California. 

Since then, with the help of a sympathetic judge and 
two court-appointed lawyers in California, she has 
contested the divorce, requesting that the marriage not 
be dissolved because, as die wrote the court. “In our 
situation, divorce involves not only matters of person- 
al relations and financial claims, but my husband’s 
responsibility for my very life." 

Mr. Talanov has refused to comment, his lawyer 
said. The lawyer, Rick A. PeasJey of Auburn, said his 
client had “tned in the last seven years to get her to 
come to the United States but the Russians are refus- 
ing to permit it.” 

The lawyer said that Mrs. Kaplan’s parents were 
scientists involved in nuclear submarine research and 
that “children of individuals in those positions are not 
permitted to emigrate.’’ 

Mr. Feasley said that Mr. Talanov, believing that 
permission would never be granted, wanted “to go on 
with his life.” 

“Everyone holds this unfo rtunate situation a gamst 
Gary, like be is the villain,” the lawyer said. “That is 
not the case. He did everything to try to get her to the 
United Stales.” 

Most Russians who many Americans are permitted 


_ to leave, according to diplomats. Last year, there were 
about 100 marriages between Americans and Rus- 
sians, and about 80 of the Soviet spouses got exit visas, 
they said. Those who do not gpt permission rarely get a 
full explanation of why they are turned down. 

Mrs. Kaplan, 27, says she has written her husband 
repeatedly since she received the divorce petition but 
has received no response. 

T keep asking myself,” she said, “how can he do 
tins. I always thought we would work oat any prob- 
lems that developed because of the long separation.” 

In a letter to the court, Mrs. Kaplan add there were 
no irreconcilable differences in her marriage. She 
added that divorce would deprive her of the help of the 
U.S. Embassy and leave her “helpless and without any 
protection before the biggest prosecution machine in 
the world." 

Thejudge, James D. Garbohno, ruled that he would 
allow Mrs. Kaplan to contest the divorce. The case is 
to be decided next year. 

Mrs. Kaplan said she hoped more Soviet spouses 
would be granted exit visas after last month's summit 
meeting between President Ronald Reagan and Mik- 
hail S. Gorbachev, (he Soviet leader. 

Before the nw^rngj the State Department that 
Soviet officials had provided a fist including the names 
of eight Soviet spouses who were to be given permis- 
sion to leave the country. So far, only three of the 
spouses have been notified formally that their requests 
will receive favorable treatment. 

Mis. Kaplan last saw her husband in April 1984, 
when he visited Moscow for two weeks. Hie trip was 
his first return to the Soviet Union since Ins student 
visa expired in 1978. 

Mrs. Kaplan and Mr. Talanov were married in 
April 1978, 18 months after they met at Moscow State 
University. 

After mar r ying her husband despite the objection of 
her parents, whom she said were mathematicians, Mrs. 
Kaplan said she was forced to quit the university and 
was denied permission to live in Moscow. 

Since retaining to Moscow several years ago to 
study at a textile institute, Mrs. Kaplan said, she has 
lived life a nomad, staying with American friends. She 
said she lived with a U.S. diplomat and his family for a 
year. 

Mrs. Kaplan said her parents lost their jobs, appar- 
ently because of her marriage. She said all her rela-

Den locrats, Coy or Keen, Look to ’88 Race 


By Phil Gailey 

New York Tunes Service 

WASHINGTON — So far this 
year,, both Senators Edward M. 
Kennedy of Massachusetts and 
Gary Hart of Colorado have de- 
clined to cross the New Hampshire 
state line, as some lesser-known 
Democratic presidential aspirants 
have eagerly done. 

“Remedy hasn’t even called me 
in three months,” said George Bru- 
no, the state Democratic chairman, 
who was, however, not ungrateful 
for the postcard he received from 
Geneva, where Mr, Kennedy was 
observing the arms control talks. 

Mr. Bruno and other Democrats 
know it is only a matter of time 
before New Hampshire, which 
holds the first primary in presiden- 
tial election years, commands the 
attention of presidential hopefuls. 
The fact that some candidates are 
not ready to begin making snow 
tracks in New Hampshire does not 
mean they are not stirring. 

Mr. Kennedy, the early favorite 
in most public opinion polk, has 
been taflung to political fund-rais- 
ers, trying to soften his image as an 
ideological liberal, holding strategy 
sessions and giving selected inter- 
views to let it be known that he is 
seriously considering the race and 
will make op his mind after the 
1986 Senate elections. 

His advisers are already mailing 
potential running mates and debat- 
ing whether his choice should be 
announced early in the p rimar y 
campaign. One aide said that Mr. 
Kennedy, 53, at this point probably 
would choose a Southerner. Two 
names being mentioned are those 
of Governor Charles S. Robb of 
Virginia and Governor Mark A. 
White of Texas; but consideration 
of Mr. White would depend on his 
winning re-election next year. 

Aides say that Mr. Kennedy’s 
current priority is to pnt together a 
fund-raising network to make sure 
that his presidential campaign, if 


there k one, does not run out of 
cash and get caught in the kind of 
financial bind that crippled his un- 
successfnl primary challenge to 
President Jimmy Caner in 1980. 

Mr. Han must wish be had Mr. 
Kennedy’s basically forward-look- 
ing money concents. The Colorado 
senator is still struggling to retire a 
debt of more than 52 million from 
his 1984 primary campaign. 

He has spent the last year mak- 
ing a series of thematic speeches to 
refurbish his image as a futu re- 
oriented politician. Mr. Han, 49, 
plans to announce Jan. 4 in Denver 
whether he intends to seek re-elec- 
tion to the Senate. If he gives up the 
seat, as many think he w3L, his 
supporters will read that as an un- 
official announcement of a 1988 
presidential bid. 

Still something of a loner, Mr. 
Hart has opposed the protectionist 
legislation that briefly engulfed 
both parties on Capitol Hill and he 
has offered harsh assessments of 
what he views as his party’s lack of 
leadership on such issues as the 
federal budget deficit. 

Governor Mario M. Cuomo of 
New York says his only political 
interest is in winning re-election 
next year. He has raised more than 
S9 million for his campaign chest 
perhaps, some suggest to assure 
that no Republican challenger will 
be able to deprive him of a convinc- 
ing re-election victory that would 
improve his presidential rating. 

Martin Steadman, the governor’s 
spokesman, said of speculation 
about Mr. Cuomo's interest in 
presidential politics: “He doesn't 
talk about it and there is no game 
plan. I sense that this guy’s whole 
method of operation is to tackle the 
issues and see where that takes 

him " 

One issue Mr. Cuomo tackled 
was President Ronald Reagan’s 
proposal to end the deductibility of 
state and local taxes as part of the 
administration's tax overhaul bilL

Mr. Cuomo. 53, may have gotten

than has Representative Richard 
A. Gephardt, Democrat of Missou- 
ri. who identified himself with the 
issue more than two years ago. 

Since then. Mr. Gephardt, who is 
already stirring in Iowa and New 
Hampshire, has moved on to the 
issues of trade policy and budget-

to reconnect politically with 
“mainstream*' voters.

U.S. Warns China on Envoys 9 Activities 


By Jim Mann 

Los Angeles Tima Service 

BEUING — The UJL govern- 
ment recently warned China that 
Chinese diplomats have been con- 
ducting what are considered to be 
improper and clandestine activities 
in the Los Angeles area, according 
to a knowledgeable source. 

In one instance, the source said, 
a diplomat was found to be in- 
volved in tbe establishment of an 
organization for Chinese students 
in Los Angeles. In another case, a 
Chinese diplomat quietly attempt- 
ed to purchase real estate in the Los 
Angeles area without the permis- 
sion of the U.S. government. 

American officials “had to tell 


them to knock it off,” said the 
source. Tbe Chinese Foreign Min- 
istry would not comment on the 
reported activities. 

On Nov. 22, law enforcement of- 
ficials arrested a former CIA em- 
ployee, Larry Wu-Tai Chin, cm 
charges of spying for China over a 
period of more than 20 years. Chi- 
na has denied the charge- There 
was no indication of any connec- 
tion between Mr. Chin's arrest, 
which was the result of a two-year 
investigation, and the U.S. warning 
to Chin* concerning its diplomatic 
personnel in Los Angeles. 

Both actions, however, appear to 
be the result of heightened interest 
by tbe FBI in uncovering possible 


Chinese intelligence activities in 
the United States. 

It was not clear why the Chinese 
diplomat was seeking to buy real 
estate in Los Angeles or where the 
property was located. 

The attempt to set up a student 
group apparently was aimed at 
keeping watch on the steadily in- 
creasing number of young people 
from China at American colleges 
and universities. 

China now has 13,000 to 14.000 
students in the United States. They 
sometimes find themselves out- 
numbered by Chinese-speaking 
classmates from Taiwan, which has 
more students in the United States 
than does any other country.

performances from Maine to Cali-

keynote speaker at the state Demo- 
cratic Party dinner in New Hamp- 
shire next February, an invitation 
he sought. Bui he says he is “not 
prepared to make a commitment 
for ’88.” 

Judging from his standard stump 
speech, Mr. Biden, 43, who is re- 
garded as one of the best orators on 
the political circuit, could be a spir-

Thai Border Area Braces for Offensive 


, By William B rani gin 

Washing tor Past Service 

BANGKOK — Thai military 
forces, Cambodian guerrilla groups 
and more than 300,000 Cambodian 
and Thai civilians are bracing for 
another seasonal offensive by Viet- 
namese troops along the Tbai- 
Cambodian border amid conflict- 
ing reports about Hanoi's 
intentions. 


As Vietnam approaches the sev- 
enth anniversary of its December 
1978 invasion of Cambodia, the 
prospect of a bloody annual exer- 
cise — the dry-season offensive 
against Cambodian resistance 
groups — has aroused more than 
the usual fear because of the high 
vulnerability of Cambodian refu- 
gees encamped cm the Thai side of 
the border. 


In recent months, Thailand has 
been moving to consolidate refugee 
settlements into three main “evacu- 
ation sites." This has made them 
easier to control and administer, 
but also more vulnerable and hard- 
er to mow to safety in the event of 
a Vietnamese attack. Western relief 
officials say. 

Contributing to the Cambodi- 
ans' anxieties have been reports 


from the Thai military and from 
Cambodian resistance groups of a 
Vietnamese buildup in preparation 
for the dry season, which ram from 
November to May. 

But (he- Vietnamese insist that 
they have no intention of at tacking 
along the 450-mile (730-kilometer)

Some Western diplomats and 
Thai military sources are inclined 
! to take Hanoi at its void this time. 
They point out that the mam resis- 
tance problem for Vietnam this 
year is in the Cambodian interior. ; 

The largest of the three resis- 
tance groups, the Khmer Rouge, 
has stepped up its activities inside 
Cambodia in recent months, am- 
bushing Vietnamese troops and re- 
cruidng Cambodian youths in rural 
areas, intelligence sources say. 

Khmer Rouge units have beat 
righted less than 10 miles from the 
Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh, 

the seat of the Vietnamese- installed 
government of President Heng 
Sam ri n Last month, rockets fired 
by the Communist rebel group 
landed in the capital’s northern 
suburbs about three miles from the 
city center, the sources said. 

According to a Western diplo- 
mat based in Hand, the Vietnam- 
ese now admit that there are as 
many as 10,000 Khmer Rouge 
troops inside Cambodia. Western 
estimates generally put Khmer 
Rouge strength at 30,000 to 40,000 
guemttas. 

By contrast, two noo- Commu- 
nist resistance groups, the Khmer 
People's National Liberation 
Front, which is led by former Prime 
Minister Son Sami, and the Na- 
tional Army, headed by Prince 
Norodom Sihanouk, have not done 
as weUin mounting guerrilla opera- 
tions in the interior. 

Particularly disappointing to its 
backers has been the performance 
of Mr. Son Sami’s group, the larg- 
est non-Communist resistance 
group, which has been practically 
paralyzed by internal squabbling 
since the last Vietnamese diy-eea- 
son offensive. 

That offensive, which ended ear- 
lier this year, destroyed every major 
resistance base on the Cambodian 
ride of the border, forcing nearly a 
quarter of a million Cambodians to 
flee to the evacuation sites in Thai- 
land. In a departure from previous 
tactics, the Vietnamese this year 
remained in their forward positions 
along the border through the rainy 
season in an effort to cut guerrilla 
infiltration. 

Vietnamese military and govern- 
ment officials told Western visitors 
recently that there was no need for 
a big campaign on the border this 
year because, as one Hanoi official 
was quoted as saying “there is 
nothing to laimeh ^ major offensive 
against.”

ROME — Pope John Pad H 
pledged to remain open to the sug- 
gestions and conclusions of the ex- 
traordinary Synod of Bishops be- 
iqg held in Rome: 

“1 have followed and will contin- 
ue to follow the work with. an open 
heart and attentive listening to the 
members of the synod," the pope 
said in his Angdus message Sun- 
day. ■ 

Noting that the two-week synod 
had reached the halfway mark, the 
pope asked his audience of about 
20.000 in St. Peter’s Square to give 
fl unky for “the grace” that had 
guided iL 

The pope's words reinforced his 


the authority to set policy. The 
pope will review the meeting's find- 
ings and decide what to do with 
them. . .. 

The bishops have already decid- 
ed to issue a pastoral message at the 
end of the synod. A committee will 
write the message and, after discus- 
sion by the synod, the pope will he 

asked to approve it. 

Beyond that, the bishops could 
decide to write another document 
offering conclusions on concrete 
matters. That decision has yet to be 
made.

■ vistas” of the Second Vatican 
Council, whose effects the synod 
has been assigned to explore. 

Before the synod, some liberal 
Catholics feared that the pope 
would take a direct hand in guiding 
its actions along conservative lines. 
But John Paul has remained non- 
committal about the synod's direc- 
tion and buoyant toward the work 
of Vatican U, which ended 20 years 
ago. ‘ ' 

IBs message Sunday helped fur- 
ther dispel the likelihood that he 
would in any way undo Vatican ITs 
vast transformation in the church's 
thought and practice, 

John Paul said that he had re- 
ceived from .the words of the syn- 
od’s bishops “a fervid testimony of 
their love for the church," and be 
praised their devotion to the minis- 
tries they have been given. 

. The question of the pope's stance 
lias shifted from whether he would 
endorse Vatican 11 to how strictly 
he interprets its concepts. Debate 
turns more and more on whether to 
observe the letter or the spirit of

A group of Italians recently 
signed a petition requesting that 
the synod issue such a statement 
Vatican II had condemned anti- 
Semitism and recognized the spiri- 
tual bond between Christians and 
Jews. 

“We still need much more confi- 
dence between the two communi- 
ties before a statement like that 
could be taken seriously," said the 
Dutch cardinal, who is president of 
the Vatican Secretariat for Chris- 
tian Unity. 

Only when there is such an atmo- 
sphere of confidence, he said, 
would it serve a purpose. “Other- 
wise,” he said, “such a document 
will not be accepted as real." 

In his synod speech last week,

“The council introduced a real, 
almost miraculous convention in 
the attitude of the church and 
Catholics, but ignorance and dis- 
trust are a heritage that cannot be 
overcome in 20 years,” be said. 

The petition, signed by Italians 
in the Rome area, was delivered on 
the eve of the synod by an auxiliary

Officials, Black Pnpils 
Dig In Over Boycott 

By Alan Gowcll

SOWETO, South- A&fca— -Each 
tbe father raid, he wastes and dresses and 1 
off to work, leaving behind a daughter whose 
fate for the day be will not know until evening. 

Id normal times, the man said, his 16-year-dd 
daughter would be at school and he would not 
beso^^edabomherfntuitBmschoolsand 
year-end examinations are bong boycotted by 
many high school students in this sprawl of 
segregated, black housing outside Johannes- 
burg, so the concerns are different 

“The doctors are saying the rate of teen-age 
pregnancy has risen tremendously because of 
the boycotts,” said the man, an insurance dak 
who works in Johannesburg. “And crime will 
come, teen-age crime.” 

And there are tbe protests that sometimes 
erupt here, he said, and the army patroQmg 
streets in armored trucks Aeta^neA for bosh 
warfare. 

Then, be added, there is the question of next 
year, if the school boycotts continue into 1986, 
to the 10th anniversary of the black uprising in 
June 1976. That was the previous besdunaik of 
black protest before the latest turmoil began in 
September 1984, daiming so far more than 850 
lives and prompting tbe authorities to declare a 
state of emergency in 38 districts. 

“The black community in South Africa,” the 
nun said, “is facing up to its harshest year. The 
schoolchildren are saying that if they don’t go to 
school next year, that die parents won’t go to 
work either. 

The implication, he said, was that student 
coercion would be extended to those who make 
the daily trek to jobs 10 miles (16 kilometers) 
away in Johannesburg. 

In theory, this should be a time of hope and 
trepidation. The qualifying m m intiwn that 
determine university entrance have been taken 
and the results are not yet known. In theory, 
many teen-agers should be caught in the betful 
hiatus between high school and college. 

But after 21 months of unrest in some nan- 
while schools and 14 months of violence in some 
nonwhite residential areas, tbe hopes of many 
are blighted. 

In Soweto, for instance, 6,600 high school 
students should have mlmn their final examina- 
tion. known as matriculation. But it is estimated 
that only 350 completed the test because of 
boycotts, supp or ted by many and sometimes 
enforced cm reluctant peers. ■ 

In the Cape peninsula, about half of the 8,000 
mixed-race students supposed to complete the 
matr iculation examinations failed to do so, ei- 
tha - out of co mmitment to a cause whose slogan 
is “liberation first, education later.” or because 
they were prevented bon doing so by squads erf 
students who disrupted examinations with fire- 
hoses. 

Those that did take the examination did so 
under army guard. In other schools, teachers 
said, students farced to their classrooms by a 
police ruling that they must attend school sat

“The school is associated, with everything 
they hate,” said Peter Nixon, headmaster of 
Woodmead, a muhiiaaal, mostly white school 
outside Johannesburg, in reference to segregat- 
ed black schools. “It is a symbol of inferiority, 
state control. It’s a symbol of incompetent and

makes tbeir teen-age years of very Httie value, so 
it's a natural target for them.” 

And. as with so many other of die intertwined 
strands of the nation's crisis, tbe present is 
haunted by a past of indignity and neglect 

In the 1950s, apartheid’s designers formulat- 
ed the notion of Bantu education, a formula, 
drawn from the tenets of the day that held there 
was no need to educate bladts beyond the levels 
of the menial work they would be required to 
perf or m as noncitizens of white South Africa. 

Three decades later, the authorities have ac- 
knowledged the permanence in South Africa <rf 

miTKo ns of what are called urbanized blades, 
and business leaders say they wish to draw black 
talent into their corporations. 

Yet the generation of teachers at the nation’s 
segregated schools for blacks are the products of 
rfhe educational system of the 1950s that accord- 
ed blacks a permanently inferior status. Four- 
fifths of the teachers have not completed high 
school themselves. 

The statistics that frame South Africa’s miser- 
ies tdl their own stray. In 1984, the state spent a 
total of 234 rand (S90) on the education of each 
friarfr ditM l compared with 569 rand for each 
rhiM of mixed race, 1,088 rand for each child of . 
Indian descent, and 1,654 rand for each white 
child. 

The authorities say the proportion Spent on 
blacks is low, in part, because blade teachers are 
underqnalified, wit so their — are lower 
than those of qualified white teachers. 

Then, there is the pupQ-to- teacher ratio, 40 to 
I far blacks, 19 to 1 for whites. Whites may 


generally study in peace and at leisure. But a 
survey among 815 Made pupils in the restive 
Easton Cape eadier this year showed that most 
lived in cramped homes. 

The rates of examination success reflect the 
pattern Only a quarter of bl a c k students enter- 
ing a secondary school reach the final year of 
study, known as Standard 10. The number of 
those qualifying for u niv ers i ty entrance bas ris- 
en from 3^36 in 1978 to 9,356 in 1984, but those 
figures, according to official statistics, represent 
a drop in the proportion of contenders qualify- 
ing for university from 33 percent to. 11 3 per- 
cent 

Mr. Nixon, tbe Woodmead headmaster, said 
appheations for places by black parents had 
risen by four or five times this year because they 
wan seeking schools that operated all year 
round/ 

In Soweto, parents have formed a Soweto 
Parents Crisis Commi ttee to negotiate with the 
authorities. But, according to a spokesman far 
the group, it has readied a stalemate in negotia- 
tions with die white authorities. 

“We say, *Get the troops out of the township, 
and ther^n be an atmosphere conducive to 
lifting the boycotts and getting education going 
a g ain,* " the spokesman said. ‘'They say to us, 
‘Yon Tn«lte the atmosphere conducive and we’ll 
remove the troops.’ If s Catcb-22.” 

The parents, the spokesman said, may not 
negotiate without the consent of their children, 
who have set tarns and demands, primarily for 
the withdrawal of the army, the release of de- 
tained students leaders and the deferral of the 
year-end examinati ons until next year. 

Where is it leading? The answer, among many 
educators, was that with recession biting deep, 
unemployment and riiMffr irfinn seemed the 
only prospects for many young blacks. 

“The kids realize there is no hope,” the 
spokesman for the Soweto parents 
said. ‘There wfll be a gravitation towards more 
miBtflnc y” 


The Assoetaied Press 

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — 
The government announced Mon- 
day that it was halting the Ethi 
an operations of the French 
organization Doctors Without Bor- 
ders and taking over the agency’s 
programs. 

The action culminated a six- 
week dispute between the govern- 
ment’s Relief and Rehabilitation 
Commission and the private 
French group, which had criticized 
aspects of the Ethiopian famine re- 
lief effort, induding a government 
program to resettle hundreds of 
thousands of famine-stricken peo- 
ple. 

Berbane Deressa, the deputy 

head of the c ommis sion, said the 

French agency's staff members 

“are not doing their work since 
they started this campaign." a ref- 
erence to the criticism. "The people 
they are supposed to be serving are 
suffering as a result," he added. 

Tbe commission called criticism 
of tbe government by Doctors 
Without Borders “politically moti- 
vated” and its “refusal to follow 
nouns and procedures” had “not 
rally cast doubts an the motives of 
the organization but also seriously 
undermined their field work." 

Because of this, the statement 
said, the commission “decided to 
discontinue the services" of the or- 
ganization as of Monday. 

Mr. Bezhane, in a telephone in- 
terview, said the government did 
not intend to expel individual staff 
members and indicated that they 
would be permitted to join other 
relief agencies. 

The statement denied charges 
that tens of thousands of people 
had died as a result of Ethiopia’s 
resettlement program and that an 
application by Doctors Without 
Borders to open an emergency 
feeding center had been rejected. 

Michel Fizsbin, director of the 
Doctors Without Borders office in 
Ethiopia, said earlier Monday that 
the government had grounded an 
airplane used by tbe organization 
and indicated it might bar the entry 
of replacements for its current 
staff. He said the agency has been 
working in Ethiopia since the 
spring of 1984 and has 29 staff 
members in the country, including 
seven doctors. 

Officials of Doctors Without 
Borders have estimated that tens of 
thousands of people who have been 
resettled in the southern part of the 
country died of malaria 
other causes. The organization has 
called for a temporary halt to the 
resettlement program, which has a 
high priority for the government, 
while an international inquiry was 
conducted. 

■ Famine Eases in Ko iym 

Blaine Harden of The Washing- 
ton Post reported earlier from 
Koran, Ethiopia : 

There was a party here last week 


for three French curses from Doc- 
tors Without Borders who art leav- 
ing the feeding center at Korem. 

Parties being a rare commodity 
in these highlands, it had been 
planned and talked about for 
weeks. 

But for all the planning and an- 
uripation, the gping-away party 
was a subdued, almost melancholy 
affair. The three nurses who were 
leaving would not be replaced. Re- 
placements, it had been derided, 
would not have enough work to do. 

The feeding center at Korem is 
losing its reason for bring. There 


were 55,000 people here last year, 
most of them starving and rick. At 
the end of last week, there were 
about 15,000. By Ethiopian stan- 
dards, they are well fed and 
healthy. 

Places like Korem breed disease 
when they ore beyond the control 
of medical workers, as Korem was 
for more than half a year. Once 
brought under control as Korem 
has been for the past few months, 
they breed dependency. Relief 
workers agree that the sooner 
Korem is emptied, the better. 

And yet for the nurses and doc- 


tors who left their jobs in Euro; 
hospitals to come to Ethiopia, there 
is a wistful feeling that perhaps the 
best and most useful lime of their 
lives is ending. 

“There was so much to do when 1 
got here," said Valery Thomas. 29. 
the senior nurse at Koran's child- 
feeding center ran by the British 
chapter of Save the Children. 

“Children were near death all 
around you. If you didn’t get an IV 
into them within two hours, they 
would die. It was terrible, but it was 
very exciting." said Miss Thomas, 
who has been here since May. Now, 
she said, u lt is a bit dulL"

Today, many banks are realising that there’s 
no substitute for personal service. And while speed 
is essential, it musn’t be at the expense of the perso^ 
nal touch. 

Philips PTS 6000 banking systems free bank 
staff from routine work, giving them more time to 
serve customers. 

At the Royal Bank of Canada, some 3000 
Philips work stations are used for just this purpose. 
Other Canadian banks have installed a large number 
of Philips Automated Teller Machines, both for lobby 
and through-the-wall operation. 

In total, Philips has supplied more than 
100,000 work stations to banks all over the world. 

But as well as helping banks improve service, 
we also help them to provide an optimal working 
environment. 


For example, in the 26-storey Munich Hypo-

A Regional Nuclear Race 


iributt* T^Me^nts^VotPeopte^ CauseDesert 


The nuclear arms race between India and 
Pakistan has progressed with disquieting 
speed in the past year. Both countries continue 
to deny that they have nuclear weapons or 
ip tend to build them. It may well be cue that 
neither actually has a bomb at this moment, 
but the evidence strongly suggests that both 
are working rapidly toward a capability to 
produce nuclear weapons very quickly — and 
more than one or two of them — in a crisis. 

Last winter President Mohammed Zxa ul- 
Haq announced that Pakistan had succeeded 
in enriching uranium to the low kvd required 
for power reactors. That implies a capacity to 
enrich to the higher grade required for weap- 
ons. The work is being done at a facility that 
Pakistan has never opened to international 
inspection. In July, ABC News reported that 
Pakistan bad successfully tested the trigger 
ejevice for a nuclear bomb. In August, India 
said it had started up its new research reactor 
.i-an unusually large machine for research — 
4 Dd emphasized its plutonium output. It is not 
open to international inspection. India dem- 
onstrated in 1974 that it knows how to produce 
an explosion. Its present supply of plutonium 
is enough for 15 or more weapons a year. 

\ The pattern of these events is laid out in 
detail by Leonard & Specter of the Carnegie 
Endowment for International Peace in his 
book “The New Nuclear Nations,’' the second 
in a valuable series of annual assessments. 


Other countries will doubtless always have 
far fewer of these terrible weapons than the 
United States or the Soviet Union, but the 
chances that the others will use them, if they 
have them, are certainly no lower. Among the 
countries that either have built unclear weap- 
ons covertly or have recently been working 
toward them, two — Israel and South Africa 
— are surrounded by hostile ndghbora Others 
are locked in sharp regional rivalries. Argen- 
tina and Brazil seem to have slowed down their 
respective military nndear programs since 
they recaitiy returned to elected government 
But Indo-Pakistani tensions appear to be con- 
siderably less under control. 

Mr. Spector points out that President Rea- 
gan — contrary to the impression that his own 
words sometimes leave — has been playing a 
useful role there. A year ago he sent General 
25a a letter apparently suggesting that Paki- 
stan would jeopardize the flow of U.S. aid if 
it began producing wea pons-grade uranium. 
When India’s Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi 
was in Washington in June, Mr. Reagan per- 
suaded him at least that the United States was 
seriously trying to restrain Pakistan. 

And perhaps Pakistan will not build a 
bomb. But both it and India are still marking 
hand to put these weapons within their easy 
reach. By no all of the world’s n u d e ar 
dangers are under negotiation in Geneva. 

— THE WASHINGTON POST. 


The United States ran a merchandise trade 
deficit of SI 1.5 billion in October, the Com- 
merce Department says. That is less than the 
tremendous $15.5 bQlioo reported in Septem- 
ber — which is nice but unfortunately is also 
irrelevant. Variations from month to month, 
are being caused by irregularities in processing 
the Customs data on which these statistics are 
based, rather than by fundamental changes in 
i^ie trend. The trade deficit is now running 
about $140 billion a year and will probably 
continue at that level through next year. 

, These continuing trade deficits are a signal 
that Americans are consuming more than they 
ji reduce. The deficits are being financed by 
foreigners and. like any lenders, they are col- 
lecting interest- The weight of those interest 
payments is beginning to make a difference in 
the way the American economy behaves. 

■ Analogies with family finances have their 
limitations, but in this case the analogy works 
pretty welL Suppose a family saved its money 
4ili gently, invested it and, as the years went by, 
began to enjoy a steady stream of dividends 
and interest That would enable it to spend 
more than it earned in its weekly paychecks. 
And that is roughly the situation that the 
United States had achieved by 1981, when its 
investment income from abroad came to $34 
billion. Although it ran a trade deficit that year 
of $28 billion, the deficit was harmless because 
the investment income covered it with $6 tril- 


lion to spare, which was reinvested abroad. 
But 1981 was a pivotal year when the Reagan, 
administration set a tone of national optimism 
and good dicer based, in economic terms, an 
the chronic and increasing overconsumption 
that has continued for four years. 

To return to the family: It stopped saving 
and started spending more money, which was 
good for everybody’s morale. Wheat it exceed- 
ed its income, it borrowed. Eventually its inter- 
est payments equaled its investment income. 
Then, as it wwHnntJ to borrow and interest 
obligations continued to rise, it found itself 
with less money to spend than it was earning. 

That is the position in which die United 
Stales is now beginning to find itself. That $34 
bOlion-a-year cushion of foreign investment 
income in 1981 had shrunk to zero by the 
middle of last year. By now it has probably 
reversed to a net outflow, and the outflow will 
increase as long as die trade deficits continue. 

When the foreign lenders deride to cot down 
additional lending, as lenders eventually do, 
Americans wfll fed the weight of those accu- 
mulated interest payments. like the family in 
the example, the country will have less to 
spend than it is earning. If o v erc ons umption 
helped generate the mood of good 

feelings of the past four years, it is troubling to 
speculate an the political effects of the en- 
forced underconsumption that must follow.

A One-Sided Sex Pitch 


“A family is formed when a child is bora," 
Senator Daniel Patrick Moymhan of New 
York said in a lecture last spring. “When an 
unwed teen-ager gives birth, a broken family is 
formed.*' More than 270,000 broken families 
are formed every year in the United States. 
And those 270,000 mothos are only a quarter 
of America’s pregnant adolescents. There are 
more than a mflUan yearly, half miscany or 
choose abortion, a fourth hastily marry. 

What do these youngsters have in common? 
Not poverty youthful sexual activity is hardly 
restricted to the poor. Nor race. The pregnan- 
cy rate among black teen-agers is high, but the 
white rate exceeds that for adolescents in 
France, Sweden, England, Canaria. Wales and 
the Netherlands. What these American girls 
have most importantly in common is America 
— the undisputed champion of the sexual sdL 

What has America done to prepare its chil- 
dren for life in a country where sex is used to 
hawk everything from jeans to detergents — 


and whose citizens are told to “have good sen" 
as routinely as they are advised to Doss their 
teeth? Until recently, next to nothing. Contra- 
ceptive counseling and sex ed uc a t ion in the 
schools have suffered constant attack. 

But Americans are not as reluctant to ac- 
quaint their children with sex as such quasi- 
censorship suggests. Last winter a survey 
sponsored by the American College of Obste- 
tricians and Gynecologists showed support for 
sex education; 54 percent of the female re- 
spondents said it should start in elementary 
school Last month a study sponsored by 
Planned Parenthood reported similar findings. 
Yes, said 85 percent of those polled, sex educa- 
tion should be part of the school curriculum. 

If recognizing a problem is halfway to striv- 
ing it, America may finally be on its way to 
doing something about children who bear chil- 
dren. Otherwise, the number of broken fam- 
ilies formed every year win keep on growing.

Other Opinion 


Moscow and Southern Africa 

The visit to Moscow of Robert Mugabe, 
Zimbabwe's prime minister, gives rise to fears 
thm the Russians are about to forge stronger 
links with the front-line states to bring down 
the South African government. The indica- 
tions are that Russian policy is directed not 
toward the rapid overthrow of the Pretoria 
government but rather to a long period of 


destabilization leading only eventually — if 
possible — to the establishment of a govern- 
ment dominated by Moscow. Commercially, it 
would increase the market for Soviet minerals 
if the Western source of supply were cut off or 
reduced. Politically, a sympathetic Marxist re- 
gime in Pretoria would have obvious benefits 
in what remains an important strategic part of 
the world. But the Russians are in no hurry.

FROM OUR DEC 3 PAGES, 75 AND 50 YEARS AGO 


1910: Toward Secession by Ireland? 
PARIS — To the American onlooker the Eng- 
lish political crisis bears a striking resemblance 
to the one which ended in the American War 
of Secession. It is plain that complete separa- 
tion, not mere local autonomy, is John Red- 
mond's aim. The Redmon dices, when the ora- 
torical embroidery is stripped off their 
arguments, claim the right to secede from one 
political organization and form another on a 
basis of absolute independence. That was the 
veiy claim which the Northern states contested 
and defeated in four years of bloody war. Is 
history about to repeat itself? The secession 
of Ireland from the United Kingdom means 
distintegration of the Empire. It also means 
the beginning of a fierce internecine wSr, en- 
venomed by religious intolerance. 


1935: French Wine From Heaven 
DEN AN, France — A red rain has been dis- 
turbing the citizens here. A local druggist 
caught a tumblerful and when it proved to be 
rose-colored, the inhabitants predicted the dir- 
est calamity was about to befall the town. The 
druggist decided to analyze the rain. It con- 
tained alcohol ftmt juice, all the ingredients of 
good wine, even sugar. Explanation was given 
by Georgies RodiUon of the Association of 
Biological Pharmacists. Herrferred to an issue 
of the “Revue des Denx-Mondes” in winch 
Georges Fabri, of the Academy of Sciences, 
explains the mechanism of fogs and dusts 
whereby rains of mud or pollen are frequent It 
is believed minute bits of fruit containing 
sugar were transported here by a wind during 
the rainy season and underwent fermenta tion.

T EXENGTON, Massachusetts — Fflms of the 
JLs drought disasters in .Ethiopia, Sudan, Mo- 
zambique and other African countries are heart- 
wrenching. Alnx^ as disturbing, though, are the 
pe rcep tion s of cause and effect that pervade 
most camnent on thesitnatkm. 

Many experts would have us believe that 
somehow the people involved bear responsibility 
for their misfortune. We are repeatedly told that 
it is the nomads in these parched lands who rum 
the environment They misuse the land, we are 
told, chop down the trees and allow their animals 
to overgraze. Thus the place becomes a desert 
The impress] on is conveyed that the desert is 
man-made. This mistake is typical Of the simple; 

minriarirag nf b laming all the HU rtf the Kflrtn OB 

mankind If this misconception were simply na- 
ive and rather harmless, it would not matter. But 
accepting it may be counterproductive, because 
it has two very dangerous implications. 

It suggests that the people who five in the dry 
parts of the world rum their environment bo- 
cause they do not understand it With this as- 
susqnkm goes the arrogant notion that our “con- 
sultants,” academics and development planners 
knowthc desert better than local inhabitants da 
And the misconception insinuate s that be- 
cause such “ignorant” and underdeveloped peo- 
ple made the desert, then our new technologies 
and scientific techniques can surety fix ft. 

In reality, deserts form in any segment of the 
1 sm<j ma«M« of the Earth fra one reason alone: 
scarcity of ram. The term “desert** came to us 
from an Egyptian hieroglyph pronounced “te- 
sat,” which means abandoned or forsaken. This 
idea correctly implied that today’s deserts used 
to be kinder places in which there was life. 
From rain sprang abundant vegetation, and

sphere, which are fueled by energy from the sun. 


By Farouk El-Baz 

This b At first cf two articles. - 

moisture-laden air rises, it cools and the moisture 
condsises to fonndouds. As the clouds continue 
to climb, their moisture cools into droplets, and 
beads of ram fall to Earth. 

Most tropical. donds burst into precipitation 
between latitudes 15 degrees north and south. 
The resulting heavy rains not oily account for 
the lush tropical forests, they also foreshadow the 
aridity of the lands lying in higher latitudes. The 
same air mass that soaked the rain forests is now 
cool and contains littie moisture. 

Winds force the cool air downward, and as it 
circulates back toward the Earth's surface the air 
warms up This <Wwiil!n g dry air be- 
comes ahot breath blowing across land masses in 
rainless belts wherein exist some of the world’s 
most arid lands: die Sahara of northern Africa, 
the Arabian Desert and the TakHmakan Desert 
of Central Asia. In most of. the. two belts that 
girdle the earth between 15 and 30 degrees north 
«nd Krairfi of tiw equator, desert reigns.' 

Changes in the amoont.of energy received 
from the sun, which are related to the 11-year 
sunspot cycle and the corresponding magnetic 
activity, constantly shift desert boundaries. 
These changes cause floods as well as droughts. 

My studies of the records of water levels of 
Lake Nasser behind the Aswan High. Dam depict 
a complete picture:. The levels of water were 
dangerously low in 1973 and 1984 after periods 
of African droughts in 1968-1971 and 1980-2983; 
thk corresponds with the period of highest sun-, 
spot activity. Furthermore, both periods were, 
followed by dangerous floods in 1975 and 1985, 
at the point of lowest sunspot activity. 

This cycle is superimposed cm a rhythm whose 
phases last fra thousands of years — that of 
alternating wet *nd dry climates in the desert, 
which are related to global changes in the Earth’s 
atmosphere and perhaps to the ice ages. In to- 
day’s African, deserts, which straddle me tropica 
of Cancer and Capricorn, I have encountered 
bones of awwnala, offlieh egg shell fragments and 
human-fashioned hand tools, mining «nH gritiri- 
ing stones and pot f ra g me n ts. Such remains bo- 


mow than 300 miles farther south than they are 
today. That dry episode left sand donas so cnor- 

dkjus dun they arc viriblein sp^photc^aphs. 

The last wet episode persisted from IftOOu to 
5,000 years ago, which is the time of jmtration or 
civilization along the banks of the Nile. 

The lessen, to be learned is that the desert 
forms when the global circulation pattern or the 
atmosphere limits the amount of rain. 
According to my observations doting a dozen 

journeys ***♦» the Sahara, that desert was born ot 

water and shaped by toe wind. Its flat terrain was 

the result of thousands of years of erosion of rock 



Heating of the air by the sun’s rays causes it to 
rise in the atmosp here. If the air bang heated is 
over an ocean, moisture is picked up by evapora- 
tion. Since the sun’s energy is strougest’over the 
equator, tropical storms that farm over those 
oceans tend to contain a lot of water. As that hot

fra the Soviet leaders to think of then-

The developing conflict with 
America conformed to the Soviet 
ideological conception of a worid 
divided between revolutionary and 
couaterrevohitianary forces. But of 
course this amception, while theoret-

power from its ratiouafization of tra- 
ditional Russian nationalism.

at work, then, when dm Soviet gov-

What the president’s best-friends-'

what exists in Western Europe and 
fee United States. The Soviet econo- 
my is backward and no one has yet 
found a way to make it work well

paratus and planning system. Re-

turally stultified, a museum of 19th 
centmy Russian cmBzatioo, with in- 
novation forced underground, artists 
and writes compelled to say what 
they think only outride the estab- 
lished cultural apparatus. 

It is a country rapidly being over- 
taken in industrial weight by Japan, 
winch long ago surpassed Russia in 
the quality and sophistication of its 
products. Important baric scientific 
research is largely Western. Innova- 
tive technology is Weston and Japa- 
nese; fee Soviet imdfigaoce service 
devotesitsdf to stealing it 
. The Soviet system is not a riv xys s 
even by its own material standards. 
The ambitious economic and social 
.forecasts of the Central Committee’s 
program in 1961 were largely with- 
drawn this year. The transformation 
of Soviet Russia from its present offi- 
cial status, that of “mature social- 
ism,” to communism itself — when, 
as the student wiD recall, the state 
itsdf begins to melt away — is some-

paid each other to the unbridgeable 
Ideological gulf between fee two sys- 
tems and the innate treachery of the 
Other Side. Their conclusion: An ex- 
change of fee Bolshoi fra the Beach 
Boys is about as far as U.S.-Soviet 
relations should be allowed to go. 

The proof of feat proposition is 
supposed to be the emptiness of sum- 
mit encounters in the postwar era. 

It is an easy argument to make: A 
succession of summit exercises con- 
ducted by Eisenhower, Kennedy. 
Nixon, Johnson, Ford and Carter did 
not resolve fee Cold War; they did 
not forestall the crisis in Hungary, 
the Berlin Wall, the missiles in Cuba, 
fee assault on Czechoslovakia, Com- 
munist encroachments in Ethiopia, 
Yemen, Afghanistan, Angola, Nica- 
ragua and Cambodia, or the shooting 
down of a South Korean airliner. 
They did not put an cod to Soviet 
espionage, or to gross violations of 
human rights in fee Soviet Union. 

So n mifo for the whole idea of the 
leaders of the two great superpowers 
getting together. “The sheer nothing- 
ness of the [Geneva] conference is its 
paramount achievement,” William F. 
Buckley Jr. argued recently. That 
land of talk is coming from what is 
thought to be an ascendant body of 
opinion in American politics — a 
conservative renaissance. 

Yet the political leader of this re-. 
naissancc, Mr. Reagan, appears to 
have moved into the camp of those 
who come to grips wife the reality of 
manag in g relations wife a powerful 
adversary and anxious allies while 
responding to the mgs and hauls of 
politics at home. He has joined the 
rest of the postwar presidents, who 
accepted summitry as a necessity of 
life in fee nudear age. 

The awful things that have hap- 
pened despite summits are not neces- 
sarily the whole stray. It is not entire- 
ly imnriiftw to ponder a hypothetical 
question: How much worse might 
things have been if the leaden of the 
United States and the Soviet Union 
had coolly kept fear distance? 

That is the tormenting dilemma of 
what is called preventive diplomacy. 
There is no way to demonstrate the 
consequences averted by trying to 
diffuse confrontation, by trying to 
define what is intolerable behavior by 
both sides, by trying to readt modest 
treaty agreements. There is no handy 
measure of the good things derived or 
fee bad things avoided by having the 
two top men take each other’s mea- 
sure and bear each other’s case. 

But feat is no reason to abandon 
preventive diplomacy. 

Leaving asde what each man may 
think he gained in the Geneva meet-; 
ing, I would argue that the meeting 
justified itself with one accomplish- 
ment: the agreement to meet again, 
not once but twice. There is some; 
thing to be said for making these 
encounters commonplace. 

That is what Harold Macmillan 
had in mind 25 years a^o when he 
deplored the cnris-creating, propa- 
gandists quality of one-time summit 
meetings and argued fra a “dram ctf 
peaks." To a Ira of people it rounded 
too sensible and too orderly for a 
disorderly East-West relationship; 
And yet we are closer to fee concept 
of regularity in summitry as a way of 
easing the confrontation between the 
superpowers than we have ever beeri 

That opportunity would not be 
presenting itself if the head-knocking 
at the most recent summit meeting 
had not been vigorous enough to test 
just how far' either ride was ready to 
go and at what risk of a blowup and a 
bad scow. There was a recognition 
on boflradet feat while some of their 
differences were p ro fo u n d and irrec- 
oncilable, some were not — and that 

there were good reasons to address 
those that might be reconcilable. 

Not the least of fee reasons was an 
apparent mutual recognitio n ihm ihit 
was not just a debate between two 
great powers over dashing concerns 
and opposite -ideologies; that others 
had a stake -in the handling of the 
superpower crarflict; that how well 
badly it was handled would directly 
affect the s up erpo w ers * standing and 
interests in tne rest of the worm. * 

Insofar . as Ranald Reagan and 
Mikhail Gorbachev aune to those 
conclusions at Geneva, the worid is 
markedly better off.

IAs pannings, they’re seen in dif-

For Federico Armijo, a sculptor

Mexico, doors are a sculptural op-

wouldn't buy a sculpture would 
buy a sculptural door because it’s

The artist finds and cuts scraps 
of tin, at taching them to a solid 
wood door with small brads as a 
type of collage or mosaic. At a 
distance the image is clean dose 
up, the construction is viable. 
"Tony finds old metal boxes and 
suitcases, and suddenly you have a 
new door to your kitchen, and it’s a 
Garden of Eden,” Strauss said. 

For David and Ginny Fax. the 
idea for decorated doors in their 
New York apartment came as the 
couple walked through a furniture 
showroom and saw large walls of 
textured lead glass dividing one 
space from another, establishing a 
sense of privacy but admitting 
light. The couple had just bought 
two apartments, which were bang 
combined by Richard Lewis, a 
New York architect, into a single

huge granite booldera in Carefree, 
Arizona, near Scottsdale— a group 
of boulders once occupied by Indi- 
ans — the sculptor made a free- 
form wood door surfaced in alter- 
nating bands of copper and bronze. 
The metal protects the wood from 
the great beat of the desert. 

While the heaviest of Armijo’s 
doers weighs about 1,200 pounds 
(545 kilograms), that in the Empie 
bouse is about 400 pounds. Hang- 
ing a door of this weight requires 
hinges with ball bearings; often Ar- 
mijo uses concealed tinges, bet 
sometimef. he adds another piece to 
cover an exposed hingp. 1 Tie sculps 

tor said he had to consider secnriiy 
in his doors and bad 
used electronic equipment Prices 
for his doors, which are done on 
commission, have ranged from 
51,500 to 59,000. 

Tony Beriant, a California artist 
who has fashioned more than a 
half-dozen doors out of scrap tin, 
relates the interest to a long tradi- 
tion of decorated doers. “North- 
west coast Indians centered their 
doors and painted them as a mouth 
of a fish or a serpent," he said 
"Italian Renaissance artists' did 
elaborate wood doors.” 

Contemporary efforts range 
from examples erf craft and decora- 
tive art to those of fine art. Artists 
design them for a particular door- 
way and client, tailoring the design 
to the nature of the house and fam- 
ily. The doer belongs to the house 
and, unlike a panning, does not 
move with the family. 

“When you do a work in context 
of a house, you don’t have the free- 
dom of an artist painting for your- 
self for a angle buyer you don't 
know ” Beriant said. “Other people 
have to like it, and you somehow 
feel more responsible. That it’s go- 
ing to stay there between a kitchen 
and dining room also stops it from 
being a piece of gallery art” 

The seven doors Beriant has 
done over the Last several years 
have all been for friends — “I like 
making an object that m see for 
many years rather than once in a 
great while," be said- Early this 
year, Beriant installed a kitchen 
door in Los Angeles for Ted and 
Ludy Strauss, a writer and a gallery 
owner respectively, that started as a 
personal appreciation of the inti- 
mate Christmases the family holds 
each year. Beriant. a family friend, 
at fust depicted a Christmas tree on 

both sides of the swinging doer, but 
the door quickly evolved into a vi- 
sion of Eden, complete with a 
snake in the tin grass and a small 
red apple tempting in a blue tree. 
On the door to her studio in the 
house, Mrs. Strauss already had 
another "Garden of Eden," with a 
golden apple, a weaving done in

large apartment, and they realized 
that translucent glass doors would 
admit tight into a dark entry from a 
windowed kitchen. The couple 
commissioned the artist Maya Ra- 
doezy, who lives in Seattle, to do 
the hall doors and a pair of pocket 
doara between the kitchen and din- 
ing room. The four doors, now in- 
stalled, have re gul a r ribs erf lightly 
rippled glass, in an armature of 
lead; diagonal strokes of leaded 
glass break up the regular geome- 
tries. The artist charges 5800 to 
55,000 for her projects. 

Decorative glass was also the so- 
lution in the studio of James Hong, 
a New York architect; the entrance 
had an unattractive, industrial 
front door. La an exchange of pro- 



fessional services, he asked Carmen 
Spera, a New York artist who 
paints an glass, to decorate a piece 
of glass that would simply fit over 
the door inride the studio. The door 
Spera created is a strident pink, 
green and yellow, and features cac- 
tus; a hole is notched out of the ride 
for the dead bolt Hong says be 
only has to nuke sure not to slam

promised the city would “do all in

The underground project, con-

around a main street 100 meters 
long and 10 meters wide. Experts 
said Chemetov treated the develop-

pillars, reminiscent of the SL Eus-

The street, called the Grande

Hind us in U.S. 'Adopt’ Cows 


The Associated Press 

D ETROIT — Hindus who find 
it impossible to keep a cow 
are being offered a chance to aid 
their religion's most sacred ani m al 
through a farm’s Adopt-A-Cow 
program, guarani wing an arumaTs 


Herbert Bressack, director of the 
Gita-nagari Farm Community in 
Port Royal, Peansylvama, said tbe 
farm offered three plans for Hin- 
dus who want to help protect cows. 

Jag Busban Kanl and his wife; 
Veeoa, became life members of 
Adopt-A-Cow three years ago 
while living in Scranton, Pennsjd- 
vania. The couple, who now live in 
Detroit, paid 53,000 to guarantee 


that “a cow will be under your 
protection for her entire life.” 

“Our donation was not that 
much," said Mrs. Kacl, who, like 
her husband, is a native of India. 
“But that was before the present 
campaign started We have seen the 
farm ana if s very weS-operated" 

Another Hindu couple, Howard 
and Edith Best of Detroit, entered 
Adopt-A-Cow under a second 
plan, paying 530 a month for a 
year. They receive a photograph of 
their cow and periodic news about 
iL sweets made from cow's milk 
and other daily products, and a 
weekend's stay at the farm, about 
60 miles (100 lolometeis) northwest 
of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Prices Fall Sharply on NYSE 


United Prat !nternationed 

NEW YORK —The New York Stock Ex- 
change suffered its sharpest loss m almost four 
months Monday as some investors, worried that 
interest raxes might not fall further, took profits. 

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 14.22 
to 1,457.91, the largest one-day decline since 
Aug. 6. 

Broader market indicators also retreated. The 
NYSE index fell 0-92 to 1 15.63, while Standard 
& Poor’s 500-stock index dropped 1.71 to 
200.46. The price of an average share fell 29 
cents. 

Declines ontpaced advances 1,058-563. Vol- 
ume totaled 103-53 million shares, 19 from 
8406 nnDioa Friday. 

Analysts said some investors were concerned 
that interest rates would stabilize or even rise at 
least in the near term. 

The National Association of Purchasing 
Management said the economy strengthened in 
November and retailers reported strong post- 
Thanksgiving Day sales. The government re- 
ported U.S. construction spending rose 0.5 per- 
cent in October. 

“There are two camps on interest rates,'* said 
one trader at a major brokerage firm. "The first 
has a perception that interest rates are 
going to s tabilize and maybe even move a little 
higher. The second camp says rates will trend 
down. Right now, the first camp has the edge." 

Jerome Hinkle of Sanford C. Bernstein sad a 
lade of new leadership from the high technology 
and auto sectors, areas that have been strong 
recently, also weighed an the market 

Participants said “natural profit-taking” af- 


ter two months of Stomg advances also contrib- 
uted to weakness. 

“A Jot of people pot cash in to the market last 
week and there's more cash to come,” a trader 
said. “But some people are taking their chips off 
the table as wdL” 

Ricky Harrington of Interstate Securities in 
Charlotte. North Carolina, said the maricet was 
engaged in an orderly correction that coeld last 
one or two more days bat was not the start of a 
major move down. 

Baltimore Gas & Electric was the most active 
NYSE-listed issue, adding ft to 23ft. 

Baxter Travenol followed, easing $ to 14ft. 

Texaco was third, losing ft to 31ft. 

Sobering Plough was the session’s biggest 
winner, jumping 3ft to 60ft. 

Weakness was pronounced among high tech- 
nology issues, IBM fdl 1ft to 137ft and Digital 
Equipment dropped 2ft to 2 28ft. 

Among semiconductor stocks, Texas Instru- 
ments lost 1 to 101ft, National Semiconductor 
eased ft to 12ft and Advanced Micro Devices 
lost ft to 27%. 

Airlines woe mixed after dimbing Friday on 
expectations of lower oil prices. Eastern Air- 
lines added ft to 6ft. AMR Corp^ parent of 
American Airlines, fell lft to 41, and UAL Inrx, 
parent of United Airlines, added ft to 49. Delta 
rose ft to 38ft. 

In anticipation of lower petroleum prices, the 
oil sector contmned to weaken. Mobil was off ft 
to 30ft, Sohio fell lft to 51, Exxon lost 1 to 52ft 
and Chevron lost ft to 37ft. Atlantic Richfield 
fell lft to 65ft, PhQUps Petroleum lost ft to 12ft 
and Amoco dropped lft to 65ft.

WHAT A 

IS 



■ - V.I -VfV- '■ j* 


f n recent years, new and 
creative financial instru- 
ments have been introduced at 
as ever-accelerating pace in 
the international markets.Zero 
bonds, index futures, foreign 
exchange options, interest rate 
futures are typical examples. 


Stimulating many of these 
innovations, of course, is 
the magic of leverage - which 
allows the acquisition of a 
large portfolio with limited 
capital 


in US. treasury bond futures; 
a subsequent interest rate 
decline of 1% would result in- 
a return of U. S. S 9,750! 

Visions of quick profits 
have at times fueled excessive 
speculation in these instru- 
ments, and for the speculator 
there is the ever-present 
risk of a “leveraged loss" on 
the downside as we!L 


Bank Julius Baer 


" The international Investor" 


As usual, investment 
decisions based on straight- 
forward, timely information 
achieve the best results. 


Although futures and op- 
tions are not new, they are now 
being used in novel ways. 
Take interest rate futures, for 
example. An investment of 
U.S. $ 3.000 serves as “down 
payment" for U.S. S 100,000 


But financial futures are 
nevertheless a well estab- 
lished tool in the day-to-day 
hedging operations of insti- 
tutional investors. 


For Bank Julius Baa; one 
of Switzerland's most experi- 
enced and prestigious private 
banks, furnishing the serious 
international investor with 
professional in-depth analysis 
and sound advice is a matter 
of the highest priority. 


And there can be significant 
advantages for the conserva- 
tive private investor as well 
provided he receives sound 
guidance. 


The Bank’s international 
commitment rests on a 
century-old tradition, based on 
the conviction that excellence 
of service is the foundation 
for a lasting business relation- 
ship with its clients. 


Among the broad range of 
services it provides for the 
international investor; Bank 
Julius Baer offers valuable 
information and advice in its 
quarterly review, "The Inter- 
national Investor.” 

The current issue examines 
the pros and cons of financial 
futures and options in today’s 
rapidly changing investment 
environment

j Heats Up on New Contracts 

. ByliSAYAWatAN 



H1CAGO — The newest mosey game in town has 
pitched Chicago’s leading commodities markets into 
battle in the most elaborately publicized and cosdy 
rivalry between two such institutions in memory. The 
contest, which has featured parties and an airplane trading a 
campaign slogan ova: a football game, is bang fought between 
the Oncago Board of Trade and the Chicago Mercantile Ex- 
change. 

Between them, the exchanges have spent a reported S6 million 
to attract investors to their new over-the-counter stock-index 
futures contracts, which were introduced by both Oct. 75. Hie 
contracts are the latest inno- 


Sofar, the Board 
of Trade’s contract 
has attracted more 
investors.

vationof the exchanges, which 
began life in the last century 
offering fanners and food 
merchants a forum to smooth 
out their accounts by trading 
goods at a fixed price for a 
future date. Farm-goods con- 
tracts are still traded but vol- 

ume in these ccnnmodities has 

waned while exchanges have introduced new contracts ranging 
from oil and bonds to currencies and stocks. 

The contracts offer speculators, who often haveno use for the 
commodity they are trading in, the chance to make fast fortunes 
by correctly spotting future price trends. To outsiders, it may 
sound like gambling and very often is. 

F OR EXAMPLE, with a deposit of as little as $3,500, 
investors can trade one of the new OTC stock-index futures 
contracts, now worth between $75,000 and $90,000 each. 
The deposit allows them to bet on whether the basket of stocks 
included tn that particular index will rise or fall If they choose 
right, they stand to make a substantial sum. If wrong, they may 
well lose everything. 

The Board of Trade is trying to win investors with its NAS- 
DAQ-100 contract which tracks 100 nonfinancial issues on the 
OTC, the last-growing market on which shares are dealt directly 
between brokers’ offices rather than on a traditional stock ex- 
change floor. 

The mercantile exchange’s OTC-250 index, dubbed SPOC, 
comprises 250 domestic industrial stocks quoted on the OTC 
Both have some powerful household names in thdr index. The 
Board of Trade’s index boasts Apple Computer Inc. while Nike, 
the athletic-goods company, is one of the 2S0 shares in the 
Mercantile Exchange’s contract r 

* Analysts say it is too early to tell whether either contract will 
succeed. Sustained and expanding volume is required. However, 
the Board of Hade’s contract has led from the start, with an 
average of 6,200 contracts traded daily, compared with 4,100 for 
the Mercantile Exchange’s contract 
Both exchanges have pushed hard to get traders from other 
commodities pits to spend at least IS minutes a day with their 
colleagues in the stock-index pit This helps provide the essential 
contract volume that allows participants to trade when they want 
to at the lowest cost 

“Traders would like to support the contract but a lot of them 
lost as much as $20,000 the first two days becanse the market for 
it was so thin,” said David Harris, a trader in the sparsely 
populated NASDAQ-100 stock-index-futuxes pit 
- Most of the volume in the two new contracts still comes from 
floor traders and brokerage firms, with only about a fifth of the 
volume coming from public invertors, exchange souxoe& said. . . 

But die contracts have not yet attracted the public and large 
institutional investors, such as pension funds. The interest of

DeHariBandSale 


By Warren Gctlcr 

International Herald Tribune 

FRANKFURT — As expected. 
Boring Co. edged out the Wert 
German indust rialist, Justus Dor-, 
nier, and a Canadian investment 
group in bidding to acquire state- 
owned de Havmand Aircraft of 

fjwiarin t the fimuriim grnffre. 
ment announced Monday. 

Vera Holiad, aspokeswoman for 
the industry minister , fBneTwr Ste- 
vens, said that Seattle-based 
Boeing and Mr. Stevens have 
signed a detailed letter of intent 
that would have Boeing acquire 
loss-reporting de HaviQand for 155 
nnBian Canadian dollars ($112.3 
miHion). The package would be 
comprised of a 90-minion-doBar 
cash down payment and 65 million 
dollara in deferred payments. 

Boemg is the wood's largest pro- 
ducer of commercial aircraft. 

The book value of de HavOland, 
which has bad accumulated net 
losses of 484 million dollars over 
the past decade, was said by Cana- 
dian offiraflk last month to be 130 

mfRirtn iWlar s 

Boeing and the nmariian gov- 
ernment have 90 days to condnde 
an acquisition agreement. Ottawa 
officials said they expect to can- 
dnde the sale before the end of the 
month. 

“The letter of intent that we 
worked out with Boeing was so 
detailed that the final step of can- 
rimtinji »n acquisition agreement 
will be easy, a mere foanatity,” a 
high-placed government official 
ynd 

A Boeing Co. spokesman, Rich- 
ard Schkh, said: “We see this as a 
viable business venture for Boring. 
De Havilland makes excellent 
products, their commuter aircraft 
are of a size and type we do not 
already build and would tnaVe a 
nice c omplement to our product 
line — the marketing efforts of de 
Ha villan d and Boeing should bene- 
fit,” from the linkup. 

The letter of intent allows Boeing 
to pay its deferred payment in cam 
over a period of li yean or, alter- 
natively, to deduct 1 xmDian dollars 
of the 65 million dollars deferred 
sum for icvcry 5 nnOion doll am 
•Boeing agrees to invest in Canada 
to develop de HavQlaruTs business. 

Officials in Ottawa's Ministry of 
Regional Industrial Expansion, the 
minis try responsible for t wnrning 
several major enterprises to the pri- 
vate sector, said they expected 
Boeing to opt for the latter form of 
payment, leading to a 325-nriHkm- 
doUar injection of capital The let- 
ter of intent pledges Boeing to

Bill to Mint 
Gold Coins 
Passed in U.S. 

CompSed by Oia Staff From Dispatches 

WASHINGTON — Congress 
passed on Monday a bill that au- 
thorizes the minting and sale of 
UB. gold coins for the first time in 
more than half a cen tur y. 

Final action in the House of 
Representatives came cm a voice 
vote. The Senate passed the tegisbfc- 
tion on Nov. 14 and no opposition 
is expected from President Ronald 
Reagan’s administration, the bill's 
last stage. 

There wSl be four gold bullion 
coins — for $50, S25, $10 and S5. 
Their prices will fluctuate with (he 
grid market and will not be tied to' 
the nominal d rilw designation on 
the crirn The biggest orin will con- 
tain one ounce (28 grams) of grid 

“No longer will Americans want- 
ing to buy gold coins have to buy 
foreign cons,” said Representative 
Frank Anmmzio, Democrat of Ki- 
no is »md chairman of the banking, 
firnwr^ imd urban affairs’ sob- 
committee on im m mtf affair s otwi 

coinage. 

The new coins wiD not be srid to 
the public ratfl Oct 1, 1986, so as 
not to interfere with the sale' of a 
Statue of Liberty cdn. 

The mintin g of the four coins 
wQl mark the first tune in 53 years 
that the United States has pro- 
duced hs own gemaatrircnlation 
gold corns. 

The U.S. grid coins would be 
legal tender for their face value but 
would be sold by the Treasmy De- 
partment at the market value, phis 
minting , marketing and distribu- 
tion costs. 

Dealers expect the coins to be 
sought mainly by crilecuas and 
investors. Profits from the sales 
wonld be used to reduce the nation- 
al debt. 

Representative Jeny Lewis, Re- 
publican of California, a chief 
sponsor of the bill, said that in 1984 
alone, the United States had a grid 
coin trade deficit of more than $1 
bflhon. 

He said $400 million of that deft-, 
□t went directiy to the South Afri- 
can government for the trading of 
the Krugerrand.

nand EL Marcos went to Cebu 
recently to outline Ms plan for 
economic recovery in the Pftilip- 
-= and to give a pep talk to 


Urging them to look for new 
investment opportunities, he 
spun a little story. The subject 
was kaolin, a da^tike substance 
used in ceramics and other prod- 
ucts. The presideat said he had 
been surprised to learn that the 
Philippines has a lot of the staff. 
He then confided how it came to 
his attention. 

“Several foreign entrepreneurs 
ram*-, to me asked for exclu- 
sive tights to kaolin deposits, ” be 
said. 

The economy of the Hrihp- 

r s is beset by problems and 
stray told by Mr. Marcos in 
Cebu, central Philippines, re- 
vealed one of the banc ones: the 
concentration of power and in- 
fluence at the top of government. 

The fact that foreign investors 
fed they have to go to Malacan- 
ang Palace to ask the president of 
the republic for exclusive muring 
rights flhutraies “exactly what’s 
wrong with the Philippines,” a 
Southeas t Asian diplomat 
If presidential elections are 
held eady next year, as Mr. Mar- 
cos says he wants, the economy 
will be a top issue. The role of 
Mr. Marcos and some a£his po- 
litical allies in " 
tore and industry will 
tain opposition target 
“The badness c ommun ity has 
been demanding r e f or m ^ but 
Marcos has not moved,” said 
Jose Concepcion Jr, who runs a 
food products company and is 
active in the opposition. 

The president has his defend- 
ers. Juan Ponce Entile, the de- 
fense minister, ads, “Is it the 
fault of Marcos that the world 
price of sugar has gone down? Is 
It hia fault that the sugar planta- 
tion owners have had to lay off 
workers?” 

But after 20 years as president.

An issue in the PHlipjptnes is President Ferdinand E. 
Marcos’s policy on agneufrnre, one of whose mainstays 
is sugar-cane growing in Negros Occidental province. 


Mr. Maroos will find it difficu lt 
to deflect the issue of the econo- 
my. These are hard times. Unem- 
ployment is estimated at 15 
cent, underemployment as J 
as 45 percent 

Manila has been particularly 
hard Ml Some garment workers 
here reportedly make only 8 pe- 
sos a day, less than 50 cents. 

Foreign investors are wary. 
Political and Economic Risk 
Consultancy, a Hong Kong- 
based consulting firm for multi- 
national corporations in South- 
east Asia, said in a report earlier 
this “The Philippines 

stands alone as the most risky 
non-Communist country in the 
region for doing business.” 

The report died both econom- 
ic factors and potential political 
instability, specifically tee threat 
of the Communist-led insurgen- 
cy in the Philippines. 


Paul D. Wolfowitz. U.S. assis- 
tant secretary of stale for Pacific 
and East Asian affairs, told a 
House subcommittee recently 
that some economic models 
showed that the Philippines’ 
slide had bottomed out and that 
the economy was beginning a re- 
covery. 

“However, domestic and for- 
eign inv e stm ent is still flat,” he 


Mr. Marcos told the business- 
men in Cebu that the govern- 
ment’s economic policy would 
concentrate on agpcultnral ex- 
ports, particularly products 
That others can’t produce, or 
where we have a competitive ad- 
vantage.” 

He also anno unced approval 
by International Monetary Fund 
negotiators for the government’s 
economic and fiscal policies,

Argyll Offers 

$2.8 Billion to 
Buy Distillers 


By Bob Hagcrty 

International Herald Tribune 

LONDON — Argyll Group 
PLC, a food retailer, announced 
Monday a £1 .86-billion (S177-bil- 
lion) takeover bid for Distillers Co., 
the biggest producer of Scotch 
whisky. 

Distfllexs, whose brands include 
Johnnie Walker and Dewar’s 
Scotch as well as Gordon's gin, 
rejected as “completely inade- 
quate” the long-expected bid. 
which is ibe largest ever in Britain. 

Because of the importance of 
whiskey to the depressed economy 
of Scotland, analysts said, the offer 
was likely to be referred to the 
Monopolies and Mergers Commis- 
sion. The commission would have 
about six mouths in which to advise 
the government on whether the 
combination would be against the 
public interest 

Argyll’s bid is the latest in a 
series of recent takeover offers for 
British and U.S. companies with 
internationally known brand 
names. 

Last summer, for example, 
Guinness PLC wrested control of 
Arthur BeD & Sons PLC, another 
Mg Scotch producer. Elders IXL 
Ltd. of Australia currently is seek- 
ing to acquire Allied-Lyons PLC a 
brewing and food giant with a hos- 
tile bid of £1.8 bQlion, which is 
expected to be increased. 

In each case, the bidders have 
ctaipierf superior marketing exper- 
tise and promised to squeeze out 
higher returns from the brands. In 
addition, according to a financial 
adviser to Argyll, bidders regard 
buying well-known brands as “a 
safe way of baying reliable prof- 
its.” 

For every 10 ordinary shares in 
Distillers, Argyll offered eight new 
Argyll ordinary shares, 10 Argyll 
convertible preference shares and 
£14.50 in cash. Argyll valued that 
package at 513 pence per Distillers 
share. As an alternative, Argyll of- 
fered 485 pence in cash for each 
Distillers share.

nounced on Monday an agreement

four shares in United, a maker of 
crackers, cookies and other foods.

The Associated Press 

WASHINGTON — The pro- 
ductivity of American business in- 
creased at an annual rate of 2.1 
percent in the third quarter, the 
best performance of the year, the 
government reported Monday. 

In a separate report, the govern- 
ment said U.S. construction spend- 
ing rose 03 percent in October, the 
best showing in four months. 

In its productivity report, the 
UJ5. Labor Department said that 
business output nxe at an annual 
rate of 33 percent in the third quar- 
ter while the number of hours 
worked rose IB percent, according 
to figures revised from prethninaiy 
data a month ago. The figures ex- 
clude farm activity. 

Productivity had declined 3.1 
percent in the first quarter and ris- 
en L2 parent from April to June. 

In the manufacturing sector, 
productivity increased at a 3.7-per- 
cent arm™! rate from July to Sep- 
tember, the Labor Department 
said. Output increased 33 percent 
while hours worked fell 03 percent 

The increase in output was the 
strongest in a year. The dedme in

employment and an increase in the 
of the manufacturing work- 


Analysts attributed the poor 
showing in the first half of the year 
to sluggish economic growth, and 
they said the latest figures boded 
wefl for holding down inflation. 

"Manufacturing continues to cut 
back and grow leaner and that’s 
very positive for inflation and for 


crease in four months as growth in 
residential building offset a big de- 
cline in construction of shopping 
centers and other commercial 
buildings. 

The October gain left construc- 
tion spending at a seasonally ad- 
justed annual rale of $347.8 buEon, 
93 percent above the levd of a year 
ago. 

Residential construction rose 2 
it, to an annual rate of $151.4 
with construction of single- 
family homes rising by 2 percent. 
Apartment construction jumped 4 
percent. 

Nonresidential construction 
edged down 1 percent last month, 
to $88.7 bflHon, with the biggest 
downturn a 5-percent drop in 
building of shopping centers and 
other commercial units. Construc- 
tion of office buildings was un- 
changed at a rale of $313 billion 
while construction of factories 
climbed 2 percent, to $16 billion. 

Government building projects 
rose a slight 1 percent, to an annual 
rate of $64 bfllion. 

Spending on mflitaiy facilities 
ported the biggest increase in the 
public category, rising by 13 per- 
cent over the September rate. Gov- 
ernment housing prqjects posted 
an 8-percent gain winks spending 
for schools and water-supply facili- 
ties rose by smaller percentages. 

During the first 10 months of 
1985, $285.7 bOHon in new con- 
struction has been put in place, 9 
percent above spending for the 
same period in 1984. 


whose stock market 
value is about £13 bflHon, makes 
such cigarette brands as John Flay- 
er and Embassy. Along with 
macks, it also makes frozen sea- 
foods, HP Sauce and Lea & Perrins 
Worcestershire sauce. The compa- 
ny’s brewing division, whose best- 
known brand is Courage, owns and 


supplies about 5,000 public houses. 

United is the world's second 
largest maker of cookies and crack- 
ers after Nabisco Brands Inc, itself 
recently acquired by RJ. Reynolds 
Industries Inc. United’s Keebler 
Co. unit is the No. 2 biscuit maker 
in the United States, and United is 
budding up a U-S. snack-foods 
business. In Britain, United also 
operates Wimpy hamburger stands 
and Pizzaland restaurants. 

Many analysts called the pro- 
posed merger a defensive move by 
two companies considered vulnera- 
ble to hostile bids. The companies 
had annfonw/t a week, earlier that 
they woe discussing the move. 

Announcing the agreement, the 
two stressed the advantages erf size.

increasingly dominated by interna- 
tional com pani es, marketing their

Distillers shares closed on the 
London Stock Exchange at 508 
peace, down 2 pence from Friday. 

Analysis expect that Argyll will 
have to’ sweeten the bid. Some re- 
cently have said Distillers was 
worth around 600 pence a share, 
but John Dunstnorc of Wood, 
Mackenzie & Co., a big Edinburgh- 
based stockbroker, said Argyll 
would have a strong chance of win- 
ning if it raised its bid to about 550 
pence. 

Argyll is only slightly more than 
a third as large as Distillers in terms 
of stock market valne. Argyll re- 
ported pretax profit of £53.1 mil- 
lion in the year ended last March, 
compared with £236.2 million for 
Distillers. 

Justifying its bid, Argyll said the 
Distillers share of the world Scotch 
market by volume had fallen to 35 
percent last year from 46 percent in 
1977. Distillers responded that, in 
value terms, it had held its share of 
the market at around 50 percent by 
concentrating on premium brands. 

Argyll’s chairman, Janies Gulli- 
ver. said the “loosely coordinated 
federal structure” of management 
at Distillers had led to units com- 
peting unnecessarily with one an- 
other. He also condemned the “in- 
bred management” of the company 
for having failed to score big in 
growing markets for vodka, wine 
and malt whiskey. 

Distillers, whose earnings were 
stagnant in the five years ended last 
March, replied that Mr. Gulliver 
did not understand the selling of 
high-prestige products internation- 
ally. “He deals in potatoes, he deals 
in cans of beans, and those are 
commodities,” W illiam F. Speng- 
ler, deputy chairman of Distill ere, 
said at a press briefing. 

Distillers has sought to improve 
its management by recruiting out- 
riders such as Mr. Spender, a U3. 
citizen and former vice chairman of 
Owens-Illinois Inc., and the com- 
pany recently ended a much-derid- 
ed system of management by com- 
mittee. 

But Mr. Gulliver dismissed these 
changes. “The record is appalling," 
be said in an interview, "and 
change in the past few weeks is 
more in the nature of a death-bed 
repentance.” 

To please Scottish politicians 
and investors, both companies 
played up their Scottish connec- 
tions and sent their chairmen to 
Edinburgh to hold press briefings 
Monday. Mr. Gulliver, a Scot, 
promised to move the bead quarters 
of both Argyll and Distillers to Ed- 
inburgh from London. 

Argyll also announced Monday 
that its pretax profit in the six 
months ended Sept. 30 jumped 26 
percent to £29.8 million from £23.6 
million a year before. Sales in- 
creased 14 percent to £876.1 mil- 
lion from £769.6 million. 

Since forming the company six 
years ago, Mr. Gulliver has used 
rapid-fire acquisitions to build il 
into a major food retailer. Argyll 
also has interests in making cook- 
ies, confectionery items and tea 
blends, and it derives about one- 
fifth of its operating profit from a 
drinks division. 


the outlook for corporate profits,’ 
said Allen Sinai, chief economist at 
Sbeanson Lehman Brothers Inc 

The improvement in productivi- 
ty since the trough erf the 1981-82 
recession has bon disappointing. 
In the 1950s and 1960s, productivi- 
ty at this stage of economic recov- 
eries generally ran at bettor than 4 
percent. Productivity last year rose 
2.7 percent 

Recent signs of more rapid eco- 
nomic expansion — a 33-percent 
increase in third-quarter growth — 
suggest that productivity will move 
up closer to the rates of past eco- 
nomic recoveries, analysts said.

F or investment professionals 
in the United Kingdom, 
1986-the year that is sup- 
posed to end with a bang- 
will also start with one. After well 
over six months of extensive 
planning and research, the edi- 
tors of Institutional Investor will 
present in January the most 
comprehensive report on British 
securities analysts ever pre- 
pared: The Institutional investor 
All-British Research Team. 

Following in the tradition of life in- 
ternationally known All-America 
Research Team, the British 
Team mil be based on a survey 
of leading money managers that 
will rank analysts in nearly 40 in- 
dustry groups and other invest- 


ment categories. The result will 
not be a mere listing, but an in- 
depth analysis of the state of the 
research art that no Investment 
professional in the U.K. or in any 
of the world's financial centers 
can afford to miss. 

For corporations, brokerage 
houses and firms facing the 
fierce competition sure to result 
from next October Ist’s Big 
Bang, the All-British Research 
Team issue affords a critical, 
strategic opportunity: the 
chance to command the atten- 
tion of the world’s business and 
financial elite-the more than 
95,000 subscribers to Institu- 
tional Investor worldwide. (In- 
cluding the nearly 10,000 in toe 


U.K.-over two and a half times 
as many as delivered by Euro- 
money.)

Profile of a winner 


T rinkaus & Burkhardfa success is built on 
dearly defined marketing goals with a 
strong praptmriq nn expanding financial

. to be wav* smaller than for bmks geared to

Net operating profits desurphiscf net interest 
income and net commission income ewer ad- 
ministration expenses) were slightly down in 
1984 compared wito their high levels in 198 3 , 
due to higher expenses for wages and salaries 

as well as to higher operating expenses. In the 
first half of 1986, there was an abov e - o v e r age 
improvement -to DM 24.7 million atlhe Bank 
(compared with DM 14.6 million for 6/12th 
of 1984) and to DM 35J2 mflEcn far the Group 
(DM 2L7 million for 6/12th ofi 1984). Because of 
the special income pattern of the Bank it is not 
advisabfe to extrapohte th» exception^ devel-

QUESTION: On vrirtf: advantages do you base 
your strategy? 

JACOBL The Bankis particularly innovative in 
the field of terimdc«y. Extremely flexible sys- 
tems are used and their advantages are made 
available to oar customers. A further significant 
advantage which TVinbnw enjoys over its coro- 
petitors is the direct access it has to the worici- 
wide network of the Midland Bank Group. Mast 
important of all, however, is its team of highly

Slower Growth 
Forecast in Asia 
This Year, Next 

Agntoe Fnmce-Presee 

HONG KONG — Asia’s eco- 
nomic growth will slow from 6.6 
percent in 1984 to 4.6 percent this 


1986, the Bank of America forecast 
here on Monday. 

Eric Nickerson, the bank’s senior 
economist for Aria, said at a news 
conference that the prediction was 
based on slower growth in U.S. 
demand, protectionist threats, and 
continued weakness in oommodity 
prices. 

China's economy was expected 
to experience the fastest growth in 
the region, as the country became a 
“more active and aggressive partic- 
ipant in the world market,” he said, 
presenting the bank’s economic 
outlook for 1986. 

For Chma, the bank forecast 6 


with 9 percent in 1985. For Japan, 
Bank of America predicted the 
economy would skw broadly in 
1986, growing by 3 percent, com-

J - HONG KONG — Caledonian Far East Airways, a subsidiary of 
British PataHnniaw Airways Ltd, said Monday thm it had withdrawn 
. _ ts petition to provide air services from Hong Kong, 
ii J? A statement on (he Oral day of Tiparingg by the Air Transport 
; b licensing Authority said the decision was made became of imcer- 
y r-ainty about routes to China and competition from the leading Hong 
vong-based airline, Cathay Pacific Airways, 
i . The authority was due to consider applications by Caledonian 
; £2ast and Hongkong Dragon Airlines Co. for scheduled service 
^ China and other Asian destinations. 

The company had planned to establish Caledonian Far East, now a 
;argo handler at Hong Kong's airport, as- a new regional airline with 
~-Jie majority erf shares bdd in the British colony. 

^ Civil aviatkm talks between Britain and China last month resulted 
n Cathay Pacific being granted two scheduled flights each week 
r between Beijing and Hong Kong. 

i; Hong Kang’s financial secretary, Sir John Bremridge, ruled out the 
'■< possibility last month of any other airline’s bring allowed to fly that 
xjute. 

Caledonian Far East had applied for six destinations in China, 
. nduding Beijing, and 18 others in the region, including Nagoya in 
~fapan and Kaohsnmg in Taiwan. 

•Cathay Pacific, 70-percent-owned by Swire Pacific Ltd., said a! 
Monday’s hearing that it would resume flights to Nagoya and Kao- 
i siting next April under a license it now bolds.

United's deputy chairman. Wil-

company could use Imperial’s

restaurants and convenience foods. 

Analysts were mated in their re- 
action. “It’s not a case of one plus

Talks Progress 
On Power Plant 
Soughtby China 

Ae&tct France- Prate 

■HONG KONG — Negotia- 
tions between China, France 
and Britain on China's first ma- 
jor nudear poorer plant should 
be completed in the next two 
months; the British trade com- 
missioner said here Monday. 

The official, Christian Ad- 
ams, said that although the par- 
ties still have agreements to 
work out, particularly over 
prices, negotiators were now 
working on the final stageof the 
contracts. 

Disagreement over prices 
with the Chinese prompted 
Britain's General Electric Co.

October. But the talks were re- 
sumed last month. 

GEC is negotiating to supply 
conventional generator equip- 
ment for the plant to be built in 
Daya Bay, southern China, 
while Framatome of France 
hopes to supply two nudear re- 
actors. 


U.S. Automakers Leaning on Price Incentives 


By John Holusha 

New York Times Sendee 

DETROIT — Chrysler Corp.’s 
derision to end the year with yet 
another round of sales incentives 
clearly indicates Detroit’s current 
preference for cutting prices rather 
than cutting production. 

But the Chrysler move may also 
be a sign that consumers have got- 
ten used to incentives and are 
avoiding dealers' showrooms un- 
less a special offer is in effect. 

“The customers are trained 
now ” said Michael K. Evans, the 
head of Evans Economics. “They 
were waiting for this to happen.” 

Chrysler’ s move was foreshad- 
owed when all the auto companies 
kept their production lines hum- 
ming even though sales fell as ex- 
pected in October and November, 
following a major round of sales 
incentives in the previous two 
months. 

Unless the stocks of unsold cars 
can be pared, the three largest U.S. 
automakers — General Motors 
Corp.. Ford Motor Co. and Chrys- 
ler — will almost certainly have to 
reduce their planned production of 
2.2 million cars in the first quarter 
of 1986. 


Such cutbacks would send a 
ri.-impgmng effect rippling through 
the entire U.S. economy, particu- 
larly the vast array of companies 
that supply automotive compo- 
nents. The auto and supplier indus- 
tries account for about 5 percent of 
gross national product, Mr. Evans 

NEWS ANALYSIS 

said. GNP measures a country’s 
output of goods and services, plus 
income from operations abroad. 

“The only surprise was that they 
didn’t do it in November,” said 
Mkhad M. Luckey, an analyst 
with Merrill Lynch Economus, 
speaking of ihe new round of in- 
centives. “They didn’t have much 
choice, because GM was up to an 
88-day supply of cars at current 
selling rates and Chrysler was at 
90.” A 60-day supply is usually 
considered ideal 
Chrysler said last Wednesday 
that it would offer 8.6-percent fi- 
nancing or rebates of $500 to 
S 1,000 on about half of its 1985 and 
1986 product line, mostly smaller 
models. Announcements by GM 
and Ford are expected this week. 
Price cuts in the auto industry 


were almost unheard of a decade 
ago. If sales were slow, the car mak- 
ers would offer incentives to deal- 
ers to make them more willing to 
haggle, but the public was not di- 
rectly involved. To balance produc- 
tion with sales in those days. De- 
troit was more willing to slow the 
assembly lines or simply dose 
plants. 

But shutdown costs are higher 
today, and the automakers are try- 
ing to develop a closer relationship 
with parts suppliers and labor. 

The practice has sent some eco- 
nomic indicators on a roller coast- 
er. 

Retail sales plummeted a record 
3 J percent in October as a big drop 
in auto purchases offset modest 
gains elsewhere. Sales had risen 2.1 
percent in September and 12 per- 
cent in August as consumers went 
on an auto-buying spree inspired 
by cut-rate financing. 

The Consumer Price Index 
climbed OJ percent in October, 
slightly more than the string of 0.2- 
percem increases that prevailed 
from May through September. Pan 
of the reason was that automobile 
finance charges jumped 1.9 percent 
after 10 consecutive declines as 


manufacturers eliminated some of 
their incentive financing programs. 

And GNFs third-quarter growth 
rate of 4.3 percent was significantly 
influenced by the strong output of 
automobiles. 

Economists say lhai the main 
issue is whether the incentives stim- 
ulate an increase in tout! sales for 
the year that would spur additional 
production. 

Modest incentives, such as the 
ones now being offered by Chrys- 
ler, have been regarded simply as 
time shifters that pull in sales from 
future periods by persuading peo- 
ple to buy cars earlier than they 
otherwise would. But major incen- 
tives, such as the 7.7-percent fi- 
nancing offered in August and Sep- 
tember, changed the economics of 

buying a car sufficiently to attract 
additional customers. 

Harvey Heinbach. an analyst 
with Mcml] Lynch, has estimated 
that the 7.7-percem campaign re- 
sulted in 400.000 extra car sales. 

Annualized car sales rates fluctu- 
ated wildly this year because of 
incentive campaigns. The rate for 
domestic cars went from 7.4 mil- 
lion units in July to 1 1.3 million in 
September.

The agreement to enter final Do- 
nations with Boring comes near- 
■ a year after Boeing expressed an 
erest in de Havilland, particular- 
in developing its fast-selling 
in -engine Dash 8 model Boeing, 

_lustry sources say, is eager to 

3 .^i Xune a supplier of commuter air- 
;.j. ft for regional airlines. 

. ."anariian officials had indicated 
>- math ago that Boeing was dear-

for de Havilland. which included 
laie-placed bids from Mr. Donna 1 
and Rimgate Holdings LuL, a Ca- 
nadian investor groap that includes 
the Dutch aircraft group, Fokker 
NV. 

. The choke of Boring, flip offi- 
cials said, secures an unparaHeled 
marketing network for de Havil- 
land aircraft and also assures ade- 
quate capital investment needed to 
cover further development costs in- 
volved in building a stretch 50-seat 
version of the current 36-seat Dash 
8 plane. Boeing helped establish a 
world-wide marketing program tra- 
de HaviOand’s struggling Dash 7 
model in the late 1970s. - 


Mr. Doraier last month an- 
nounced a 300-milbon dollar take- 
over package fra both de Havilland 
and a second state-owned aircraft 
group, Canadair, with an added 
200 ariUkm dollars in spira l in- 
vestment On Monday, Mr. Dor- 
mer said he would fly to Ottawa 
this week to discuss a possible bid 
for Montreal-basea Canadair 
alone. 

Several bids, including one from 
a Canadian aviation consortium. 
Fleet Aerospace, have been entered 
for profitable Canadair, but Otta- 
wa officials have said they, do not 
expect to privatize the company 
until well into 1986. 


American Motors Corp. plans to 
import 60,000 R-R21 compact cars 
from Renault of France up to the 
first quarter of 1987, the U.S. trade 
journal Automotive News, said.

Christman 1988. No finflnrial de- 
tails were available. 

Befl Ghroup Ltd., the Australian 
energy concern, said' it hdd 176.17 
mil li nn shares in Broken Hill Pro- 
prietary Co_, or 17.1 percent of 
BHFs issued shares, by last Friday, 
renewing speculation cm another 
Bril bid fra ril or part of BHP. Bell 
made an unsuccessful bid in Au- 
gust 1983. 

Evening News Association,

its president and directors will urge 
shareholders to approve the com- 
pany’s proposed takeover by Gan- 
nett Co. at a special meeting Dec. 
20 . 

Honda Motor Co. of Japan said 
it raised the retail prices of cars in 
the United States by an average 4 
percent to offset losses expected 
from the Japanese yen’s rise against

week.

MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s 
ade balance was in surplus by 
L27 billion in the Gist 10 months 
’ this year, a 42-percent decline 
om the same period in 1984, the 
. jvemmenl said Monday.

Lost of five articles 

rested that they had overdone it. 
OPEC’s total production is esti- 
mated at 18. nnQion bands a day, 
well above the gram’s self-imposed 
cefling of 16 miltipn width ac- 
counts for about a third of demand 
in die non-Communist cotm tries. 

“OPEC is already sowing the 
seeds of its own destruction fay pro- 
ducing far too much," David 
Gray, chief oQ analyst at James 
Capel A Co_, a London stockbro- 
kerage. 

In die old days, the Saudis could 
have been counted cm to cut bade 
their production enough to prevent 
a preemptions drop in prices. Last 
$nmpiff hOWeVCr, itwhngrinm put 
its OPEC partners on notice that it 
no longer would serve as the 
“swing" producer, responsible for 
trying to balance world supply and 
demand. 

Many Saudis say their swing role 
only benefited other producers, let- 
ting them increase their sales with- 
out causing a price collapse. 

“Nobody’s appreciative,” a se- 
nior Saudi di plomat complained 
recently. “They took it for granted. 
Now we’re saying, This is it. Every 
man for hunsdf.’ " 

Other OPEC members some- 
times argue that Saudi Arabia is so 
rich that it can afford Anther sacri- 
fices. Though Indonesia's popula- 
tion is more than 16 rimes mat of 
Saudi Arabia, for example, the In- 
donesian quota is less than one- 
third of that accorded to the Sau- 
dis. 

For domestic political reasons, 
however, it would be extremely dif- 
ficult for the Sandis to reduce their 


output sharply again, observers in 
the kingdom say.- 
Already; the recession is squeez- 
ing hard. Last summer, the drop in

The government is seeking ways to 
reduce spending further, but cut- 
badss are provoking grumbles from 
powerful businessmen^. 

. While the government could bor- 
row, that would offend S&udi-pnt- 
dimse and rdiffous objections to 
paying interest, at least in so open a 
way. 

T ire Sandis also generally oppose 
the idea of eating further into tire 
country’s estimated $90 billion of 
foreign reserves. Though sti& sub- 
stantial, the Squid part of the re- 

serves has been dwindling at a wor- 

risomerate. . 

When production dropped near 

2 miffin ri bmrrin a day last summer, 
"“they had nothing to lose" by risk- 
ing a price war, a diplomat in Ri- 
yadh reasoned. At that levd of out- 
put, the Saudis had only about a 
million barrels a day of revenue- 
producing crude, since domestic 
usage and aid to ocher nations was 
soaking up nearly a 

By doubling production to

3 miffi on. Even if prices had 
crashed to $10 a band from die 
current range of about $25 to $30, 
the Saudis would have had slightly 
more income rtian at last summer’s 
low paint. 

For the futu re, the kingdom has 
not ruled out producing above its 
quota if other OPEC members per- 
sist in doing so. “Our policy is that 
if if s free for some, it’s free for all,” 
ShdVh Ahmed 7*lri Yamam, the 
ml mhnstra, said in a recent inter- 
view. 

The minister, who has been in 
office since 1962, raid an oil-price 
war not year could still he avoided 
if all producers, including those 
outride OPEC, cooperated in re- 
straining, output. But, he receded. 
such cooperation did not appear 
likely, at least not yet.

see ofl prices drop below $20 for a 
short period. The Saudis don’t 
really see any way around it a: this 
point,” said Joseph C Stray, presi- 
dent of Gulf Consulting Services, a 
Virginia-based firm. Such a plunge, 
he suggested, might convince Brit- 
ain, Norway ana other non-OPEC 
producers to trim their output 

la any case, be noted, the Saudis 
have always tried to keep ral prices 
low enough to be competitive m the 
long term with other fads. la the 
1970s, Saudi Arabia refused to 
raise its prices as high as other 
OPEC mothers. Such a conserva- 
tive policy makes sense for a coun- 
try whose oQ reserves are large 
enough to continue pumping at the 
current rate fra 116 years. 

Others argue that the kingdom is 
too cautious to ramrairage. a prim. 
war, though it probably is p r ep are d 
fra the possibility that others will 
start one. 

Shaikh Y amani said that it 
would be preferable to try to regu- 
late oil output and avoid unleash- 
ing the full effects of market forces. 
When he was asked whether a price 
war would lead to violent upland- 
down swings in prices, there was no 
hesitation. 

“Very violent,” he said softly.

which, if endorsed by the IMF 
board in Washington, will release 
another $106 million to help the 
Philippines handle its debt prob- 
lems. Half the country’s export 
earnings now go to pay interest on 
its S26-taHion foreign debt. 

The economy has been in a tail- 
spin since late 1983, initially the 
result of a financial crisis- In 1984, 
economic growth d«4med by 5.3 
percent, its sharpest contraction 
since World War IT, and a similar 
figure is likely this year. 

The government has followed an 

»nelprity p ro g ram imilyf IMF guid- 

ance and has succeeded in reducing 
inflation from the 50-percent mark- 
in 1 984. The rate this year is expect- 
ed to be about 20 percent Interest 
rates have also fallen sharply. 

The proposed presidential elec- 
tions themselves pace a threat to 
the fragile economy. Opposition 
spokesmen and businessmen esti- 
mate the ruling KHusang Ba- 
gong lipiman, or New Society 
Movement, wQl spend at least $300 
million on a campaign to re-dect 
Me. Marcos; some estimates are 
double that 

Any figure in this range could 
ysid inflation sn aring a g* ac- 
cording to Mr. Concepcion, the 
businessman- A smaller amount, 
however, might put a tittle life back 
into the cnnquwg- economy. 

Coconut oil and sugar remain 
the country’s top agricultural ex- 
ports. More than 35 percent of the 
54 million FSipinos are involved in 
their production, processing and 
sales. But the world price of sugar 
collapsed several years ago, and 
this year the coconut dl industry 
has Seen affected by competitive 
products and storm damage. 

“Agriculture is doing OK.” a for- 
eign economist in Manila said. It 
showed a slight growth last year 
while the industrial and service in- 
dustries slumped. “The problem is 
to redistribute the benefits," he 
said. 


Return 

NEW YORK — The British 
pound climbed above SI JO Mon- 
day in European and U.S. trading 
for the Orel time in more than two 
years, but fell back in later trading 
amid a general dollar rally. 

Dealers said comparatively high 
UJL interest rates combined with 
the fall of the dollar against most 
currencies helped posh sterling 
gradually op to $1.5017 during 
morning trading from Friday's 
dose of $1.4880. 

Tbe British currency later fell 
back to dose in London at $1.4885 
as the dollar recovered. In New 
York, the pound also closed at 


$1.4885, down from $1.4900 on 
Friday 

Sterling was last quoted above 
5130 m London in October 1983. 

The dollar, meanwhile, bounced 
back from two-year lows against 
the Deutsche marie amid heavy 
buying by profit-taken. 

[n New York, the dollar rose to 
23180 DM from a session low of 
2.4900 and iis dose on Friday of 
2.5140. Hie U.S. currency also rose 
to 203.70 Japanese yen from 20130 
on Friday: lo 7.6805 French francs 
from 7.&S5G and to 2.0960 Swiss 
francs from 10800. 

In earlier trading in Europe, the 
dollar closed in London at 23185

Copper Prices at 2-Year Low 
As Tin’s Problems Spill Over 


United Frets International 

LONDON — Copper hit a two- 
year low Monday and dealers laid 
tbe blame partly an the problems 
of tin trading, as the International 
Tin Council resumed efforts to re- 
solve that crisis. 

At the pre-market unofficial fix 
in London, high-grade copper was 
at £938.4 ($1,48030) a metric ton 
(1.1 short tons) for cash. By the 
morning official fix on the London 
Metal P»r*angr, the price was 
down to £915. 

“The London tin market fiasco 
has now spilled over into other 
metals, notably copper where 
prices now are very depressed," one 
d e al er 

The two metals are mined and 
consumed separately. Bui because 
tbe LME*s ex p os ure to tin is so 
hi g h , trading houses that deal in a 
variety of markets are reluctant to 
tie up cash m other met nit 

Three months higher-grade cop- 
per was early Monday at tbe equiv- 
alent oT $1,49230 a too, compared 
with levels of $2^50 a ton 12 
months ago. London Metal Ex- 


change higher-grade copper, one of 
the two copper contracts traded on 
the market, is tbe benchmark for 
copper prices worldwide. 

Without investor-speculator 
cash flowing into the market, cop- 
per has proved to be sluggish in its 
trading habits, traders said, and the 
market is perhaps $300 a ton below 
its current potential price. 

The short-tenn outlook for con- 
sumption remains good. 

Industry bodies such as the In- 
tergovernmental rwmeil of .Cop- 
per Exporting Countries, CTPEC, 
which includes Chile. Zambia and 
Zaire, and the International 
Wrought Copper Council which 
includes consumers in its member- 
ship. expect demand to outstrip 
supply over the next two years. 

■ Britan's Pledge on Tin 

Britain renewed Monday its 
pledge to honor its share of debts 
and other commitmaits contracted 
by the International Tin Council 
in order to solve tbe five-week-old 
tin-trading crisis, Agence France- 
Presse reported from London. 


14923 hit earlier Monday, and 
above its close on Friday of 15075 
DM. At the earlier fixing in Frank- 
furt, however, the dotiar was set at 
15030 DM. down from 1S120 at 
the Friday fixing. 

Earlier in Tokyo, where trading 
ends as it is getting under way in 
Europe, the dollar rose to 203.10 
ven from Friday’s close there of 
201.40. 

In other European markets 
Monday, the dollar was fixed at 
midaftemoon in Paris at 7.6350 
French francs, down from 7.6645; 
at 18160 Dutch guilders m Am- 
sterdam, down from 1S260, and at 

1.703.00 lire in Milan, down from 

1.708.00 on Friday.

By James T. Yenckel 
< C TT WOULD be going loo far to say that I 

: J. felt myself to be an ancient Egyptian. 
Bat I fdt a connection, an unusual sympathy," 
writes WOHam Golding, a Nobel Prize-winning 
author/whose lifelong fascination with Egypt 
tempted him in 1983 to hire a small motor 
yacht and crew to sail up the NQe River. 

For a man of 72, and his wife, it was no small 

adventure, especially because the motor and 
other equipment on their rickety vessel proved 
unreliable. In a i»"d that in many ways still is 
primitive, where one doesn’t speak the lan- 
guage, mechanical breakdowns can be mo* 
meats of hi gh drama. 

Golding, an Fji gtish writer best known for 
his novel “Lord of the Flies,” adopted a neces- 
sarily slow pace as he explored Ihe river and the 
villages on its banks from Cairo to Luxor and 
back again But, as be explains, his account is 
“about me as much as about Egypt-” 

- As a reader, voa must recognize his intent or 
you may fed cheated by what you find in “An 
Egyptian JoamaL” Sadly, there is not much to 
be learned about Egypt from iL 

Though this disappointment lingered, I be- 
gan to enjoy the book for what it is: a simple, 

' sometimes mmnang tale of one man's unusual 
journey- and how it change s him. Golding em- 
barks- as a mil dly grumpy man in a hairy, 
obsessed with a timetable. Before the trip ends 
he accepts, reluctantly, the philosophy of the 
Nile, as revealed by a member of his five-man 
crew: “He who rides the sea of the Nile must 
have sols woven of patience.” 

Whai we learn of Golding is that he really is 
a rather good-humored traveler in the face of 
adversity. Bouncing in a wagon over a deeply 
rotted road on a shore excursion, he is seated 
between two Egyptian students determined to 
quiz the Nobd laureate: 

“Our bodies were bounced six inches off the 
wooden seats at each explosion and through it 
aQ Ac questioning went on. Airborne, I heard 
the shouted question, ‘What is your opinion of 
Virginia WoolfT It was too much. I burst into 
rude but unstoppable giggles, tried to explain 
but gave up as we contained on our Brownian 
way? • 


We also watch Golding, tb* writer in quest j. ! 
of a book, thrash about Hying to find a fen*. . ■ ■ 

are heavy - but he admits on a half- 
dozen occasions thaibe is stumped. Y«« 
almost hear the sigh of exasperation: Isatoa 
M and tntA in hrine some 


how me aevii ** * tr~ . " , . . 

Pari of his problem, I suspect, is that his ! 
journey was too short, only three or four weeks, . 
i seem. It s not much time to absorb a culture 
centuries old. And by chooang to bv 
boat he isolated himself from much of the hfe 
of the countryside. Only well into his journey 
does he make earnest attempts to get off the 
boat and meet some Egyptians. . 

Golding never does come to grips will a , 
Ejsypl and in that the book must be judged w-v 

Shire- He xaa& 10 **“ himself. But 

by the time you have finished his tale, you have 
come to like the guy. and so you don t really 

^For a lesson in travel writing, Golding would 

be wise to retd one of the current masters a? it. -

By Robot Byrne 

F OR die second straight 
year, Lev: Albeit has won 
tiie United States Champion- 
ship. - 

Id the seventh round, Albert 
was putting. strong poatanal 
pressore on Walter Browne, a. 
six-time United States champi- 
on, when a blunder decided the 
game. .- 

The opinion impheitty ex- 
pressed by the retreat with 
4 . . . B-K2 is that the white 
QB. has not really gained a 
move of development since it is 
awkwardly placed at Q2 and 
will have to move again later. 
This stratagem commits Black, 
after 7 0-0, to the Catalan 
■Gambit Declined with 
7 . . .JP-B3 because accepting 
it with 7 . . . PxP is consid- 
ered to yield. White the upper 
band by 3 Q-R4, P-QR3, 9 
QxHP, P-QN4; 10 Q-N3, B- 
N2; U B-N4, winch puts obsta- 
cles in the way of Blade’s 
achieving the. freeing advance 
with ... P-B4. 

Alburt bekLback the capture 
with 11 PXP until after Browne 



M3RT/m«TC 1 1 mu on 

Postttea after Z 7 ... K-Bl 


had developed his QN with 
9 . . . QN-Q2, so that the 
preferable . . . N-B3 never 
became posable. 

After 18 . . . Q-K2, Alburt 
firmly kept the initiative with 
19 P-QR4! which forced 

19 ... PxP (19 .. . P-N5?; 

20 N-Q3); 20 QxRP, thus ex- 
poring the black QRP to posa- 
ble attack. 

On 23 . . . BxR, it may 
have been stronger for Alburt 
to play 24 Q-B6, B-N2; 25 Q- 
N67, when 26 B-BI becomes a 
serious threat. 

After 27 Q-R4, Browne had 


to play 27 . . . Q-R4, allow- 
ing 28 Q-KSch, B-Bl. White 
would have the advantage, of 
course, but a decision is still far 
away. 

Instead, Browne erred with 
27 . . . K-BI, losing a vital 
pawn to 28 BxP!. QxB. 3f‘ 
QxN. What was left was fa* 
Alburt to demoastate his fine 
winning technique. 

After 45 . . . Q-B7ch, 
Browne foresaw 46 K-Q6, Q- 
Bl; 47 Q-B5. followed by the 
quick promotion of the QNP. 
and thus gave up without wak- 
ing for Alburt to play.

“If you don’t do something tomorrow,” the man 
said, “you're going to cost me $9." 

“Here's $10,” Zodler said, fishing into a pocket 
“Take tbe pressure off me.” . : 

' AS week, Zodler had joked about how he 
“wanted a dunce to choke far 5450,000” —the 
total prize money. But when the pot had boiled to 
$150,000 on Sunday’s 204-yard 12th hole after five 
carryovers, Zodler stroked ft 15-footer into the 
hole for a hirdSe.2. 

”Iludabigh<^mmystanadi,inynerveswere 
jmi^ang, n )wsaidlater.“IwasriM)dcedthmIhitit 
on the button. It surprised the hdl out of me. 
That’s the most I’ve ever putted foe.” 

Zodler, Iangtring, recalled putting for $10, $15 
and $20 akmsgiowmgup m New Albany, Indiana. 
“But I only had a quarter in my pocket then — . 

that’s pressure.” When heWt the Bear Creek Onb 
Sunday he. had $255,000 in his pocket after a 
$70,000 putt on the 15th bole and aS35,000 putt on 
the 18th. 

Tom Watson earned $100,000, Arnold Palmer 
$ 80,000 and Jade Nkddans $15,000. But just as the 
two previous Skins Games featured Nicklans’s 8- 
footer for $240,000 on the 18th hole last year and 
Gary Player’s 4-footer fox $150,000 on the 17th 
two yean ago, this year’s event wffl.be remembered 
for Zodkr’s $150,000 putt. 

“On that 12th hole,” Zodkr said, “Arnold hit a 
great putt from 50 feet that just then 1 

dodged a couple of bullets. I got a good read off 
Jades putt, then I got another read off Tom’s. That 
convinced me my putt was dead straight. Putting 
for that kind of money, the most difficult putt to 
hit is a straight putt." 

‘Tommy Boh,” someone mentioned, “always 
said there’s no such thing as a straight putt” 

said Zodkr, smiling at the mention of 
tbe 1958 US. Open champion, “so il broke to the 
left a little.” 

At die 412-yard 15th — another carryover hole 
— Zodkr’s 20-footer (fid break slightly to the left 
for another bird. And when Nkklaus lipped out 
bis bndk'attemptfxom 12 feet, Zodler had anoth- 
er $72,000. In the Sirius Game format, each of the 
first six hoiks were worth $15,000, each d the natt 
six $25,000 and each of the last six $35 ,000. Upon 
leaving that 15th green, Zodler leaned over and 
pretended to kiss Nicklans on the cheek. 

At the 430-yard 18th, Zodkr rolled m ft 25- 
footer for another $35,000, his fourth birdie on the 
heck nine after none on Saturday. His comeback 
did not surprise anybody familiar with the c are er 
of the friendly fast talker who underwent spinal- 
disk surgery three months after having won the 
1984 U.S. Open at Winged Foot 

“I was hurting Saturday, I was getting spasms in 
my right hip,” he said. “But then I got my Uttk 
doctor bag and took that wonderful Ettiepam pill 
and I fdt pretty good.” 

With his $255,000 Sunday, Zodler leaped into 
second dace in total earnings for the three Siring 
■ Games. Nicklans is the leader with $295,000, Wat- 
son has $230,000, Palmer $220,000 and Player 
$170,000. 

As the defending champion, Zodler qualified to 
return next year, when die event is expected to be 
held at the new PGA West course in Palm Springs, 
California; Palmer also is likely to return as tbe 
sponsor's dunce: Next year’s other two players 
mig ht be chosen by a popular balloting similar to . 
that of baseball's All-star Game: 

But for all its lemrinn, the Slrins Game has a 
weakness: None of the four golfers risk the loss of 
money, unlike any duffer who bets a few backs in 
his own dans game. Let each of the four golfers in 
the Skins Game put, say, $50.000 ofhis own money, 
into tbe pot Let him be concerned about losing 
some money, not just about how much he might 
win. 

Asked if tbe Skins Game would be as much fan 
if the gotten had to put up some of their own 
money, Zodler replied, “About the same. That 
feeling would still be there." Phis tbe anting 
fading, as every duffer knows, of maybe losing . 
your own money.

MELBOURNE — John McEn- 
roe staged a dramatic comeback 
Monday to subdue Henri Leconte, 
5-7, 7-6 (7-4), 3-d, 7-d (7-5), 6-1 in 
the fourth round of tbe Australian 
Opm tennis chamraoushipfr. 

McEnroe came back from a 2-1 
sets deficit and was down 1-5 in die 

AUSTRALIAN OPEN 

fourthhset tie breaker before sub- 
duing the Frenchman in 3 boms 
and IS minutes. 

McEnroe will meet Yugoslav 
Slobodan Ztvojmovic in Wednes- 
day’s quarterfinals; in Monday's 
other fourth-rounders, Zivopnovic 
defeated 'Em Mayotte of the Unit- 
ed States, 2-6, 64, 6-4^ 64, and 
Johan Knek downed fellow Ameri- 
can JayLmidns, 6-3, 64, 6-3. 

“I mD always remember today's 
match when I look bade on this 
crazy life of teams,” said McEnroe. 
“At 5-1 in the tie breaker, I was 
thinking about getting our reserva- 
tions, and wondered what rim* the 
flight left tomorrow. 

“1 was even thmiring of getting a 
wild-card entry to improve my 
grass-court game in tbe New South 
Wales championships next week,” 
he said. 

“It was a wonderful match, it 
was one erf those great matches. 
Leconte played great tennis. He’s a 
wonderful competitor, and he’s go- 
ing to finish op in the top 10 for 
sure.” 

Leconte, 22, was far from deject- 
ed. “I am very happy at the way I 
played. I tried hard and I played

tired — John played brilliant ten- 
nis. He is a wonderful competitor, 
and that’s why he is the best grass- 
coart player in the world. 

“Of course Tm sony I lost But I 
had my chances, didn’t 1?” 

Primed nearly three and a half 
hours by early-morning showers 
that soaked already soggy grounds, 
the encounter was played cm an 
outside court at McEnroe’s request. 
Nearly 3,000 spectators jammed 
the 1,500-seat facility. 

Ibe two left-handers sparred 
with cross-opart drives, tnpspin 
lobs and strings of valleys as they 
sought out each other’s weaknesses. 

McEnroe, the No. 2 seed, played 
with his left upper thigh bandaged, 

. but appeared unhindered. Leconte 
showed the better control of first 
service and moved into McEnroe’s 
less lethal second defiveiy to ham- 
mer crisp, deep volleys. He brake 
serve in the eighth and 12th games 
to take the opening set 
McEnroe was also in trouble 
with his service in second set, and 
had to save three break points to tie 
at 1-1. 

Leconte broke is tbe fourth 
game for a 3-1 lead when he flicked 
a backhand crosscourt that left 
McEnroe stranded at the net 
At that stage, McEnroe was hit- 
ting on only 44 percent of his first 
serves; Leconte, serving with delib- 
eration, was keeping 61 percent in 
play. McEnroe was foot-faulted 
three times by lmesman Tom John- 
ston. 

Leconte went to 4-1 cm service, 
but McEnroe came up to 24 and 
then, when Leconte double-faulted 
twice, brake in the seventh to make 
it 34. In the next game, McEnroe 
was down by 1540 but fought back 
brilliantly to 44. 

Leconte led again at 5-4, and 
McEnroe, struggling to stay in the 
niAtrfi, saved two set points in the 
tenth game and finally held for 5-5. 

At that point McEnroe, 26, was 
talking to spectators, and umpire 
Richard Kaufman issued a warn- 
ing. *T don’t want you to talk to the 
crowd anymore,” Kanfiman said to 
McEnroe as play stopped to sever- 
al minutes. The crowd, which had 
been for Leconte when he was on 
top, began chanting to McEnroe 
as the American came back to win 
the set. 

But in the third set, McEnroe 
was still having trouble with his 
service rhythm. In the seventh 
game, Leconte punched a back- 
hand paring shot that fcD just in- 
ride the baseline to break and lead 
by 4-3. Leconte held serve and, at 
1540 in ninth game, look the set 
with a aosscourt. 

In the fourth-set tie breaker, Le- 
conte led by 5-1 before McEnroe 
rattled off six straight points to win 

jand even the match, 

Leconte lost hu opening service 
of the final set and McEnroe, an- 
gling shots wide of the tiring and 
slightly demoralized 13th seed, 
jumped to 3-0 lead and ran oat the 
match in the seventh game.

49ers Romp 9 Are Set for Rams

WASHINGTON — The Los 
Angeles Rams had better not look 
over their should exs. That oncom- 
ing locomotive is the San Francisco 
49ers, who are beaded for a first- 
place collision with the Rams. 

Whfle the Rams, not long ago at 
7-0, lost to the fourth time in six 
games on Sunday, tbe National 
Football League champ ion 49ers 
were trampling Washington, 35-8. 
The 49ers, who earlier this year 
trailed by four games in tbe Na-

game behind the Rams — whom 
they will host on Monday night

“Offensively we've staggered a

With the game still within read

San Francisco parlayed five sec-

Baltimore Colts cm Oct. 17. 1965. 

The loss dropped Washington

season, but still it’s a good time to

quite a start 

TOP OF THE CLASS 

• Patrick Ewing, New Yoik: The 
top draft pkk is everything he was 
supposed to be and more; the 
Knicks are everything they were 
supposed to be and much less. As 
good as he is, Ewing; can’t do it 
alnrw. Thanhs to injuries to key 
players and some front office mis- 
management of personnel, Ewing 
represents just about the whole 
New York attack. He leads the 
team in shots, shot attempts, free 
throws, free-throw attempts, offen- 
sive rebounds, defensrve rebounds, 

turnovers, Mocked shots, paints 
and sailing average. 

Ewing has played hurt and is 
now playing tired. He has to get 
most of nis points on Ms own; he 
scores on offensive rebounds and 
on the break, because he gets out 
and runs. Bui the upside is that he 
migh t be developing faster because 
of tbe circumstances around Mm 
and because he’s about the only 
player the Knielcs have. 

Ewing’s best shot is a shod 
jumper, although Ms one-handed 
Qying-down-th e-baseline dunks 
strike tenor in the hearts of defend- 
ers. His defense at center is rated 
mud) better than most rookies’ be- 
cause he can intimidate drivers, 
block skits and doesn’t foul oat 
too often.

He moved ahead of Atlanta’s Ger-

three of Minnesota’s four final-pe- 
riod touchdowns, including a 42- 
yarder to Anthony Carter with 1:11 
left, as the Vikings roared back to 
beat the Eagles. Minnesota had 
gai ned only 67 yards rushing and 
was under 100 passing until the 
eruption. 

The Vikings drove 58 yards, Wil- 
son hitting Allen Rice for a 7-yard 
score, to make it 23-7. Minnesota 
cut the deficit to nine when comer- 
back Willie Teal picked up a Ron 
Jaworski fumble and raced 65 
yards for a TD. Philadelphia tight 
end John Spagnola then fumbled at 
his 36; Joey Browner recovered, 
and on third down Wilson threw 36 
yards to Carter for the third touch- 
down in a span of 4:29 to make it 
23-21. Tbe Eagles were stopped 
cold and punted to Carter, who 
returned the ball 22 yards to the 
Minnesota 40. On 4th-and-S at the

bined on the game-winner. 

“I can’t remember gong from

coaching veteran. “You can only 
get humiliated for so long" — the 
Vikings had lost three straight — 
“and then you rise up." (AP, UP] )

African Rugby Board on Mon- 
day canceled plans to invite the 
British liens to tour the coun-

Tbe board also said in a brief

While a 1986 tour by the Li-

when Long John 3sked me for

stared him down. 

“I'll give you $4,900.” 

“I see I’ve met my match,” Long 
John said. “That mil teach me to 
try and fool someone who lives in 
Northwest Washington. We have a

“Can I drive it right off the 
OoorT 

“Of course you can. Let's go into 
this office ana m write it up.” 

I walked into the cubbyhole 
where Long John started to tap 
numbers into a computer. 

“Do you want my check?’ I 
asked. 

“In a moment — " Tap, tap. 
“That will be $4,900 for the car 
and an extra $1,500 for the wind- 
shield wipers.” 

“Suppose I don’t want wind- 
shield wipes?” 


“You have no choice since they 
come with the car, just like the 
wheel Kp moldings which I also 
have to charge you for” 

“Howmuch'r 

“Two thousand dollars. That’s 
exactly what they cost me.” 

“I don’t like wheel lip moldings." 

“No one does. Hare’s one you 
won't object to — ibe installation 
of rubber floor mats. You get one 
free and the other one for $1,600.” 

“Forget the mats.” 

“Federal safety regulations re- 
quire all Tongas to be equipped 
with rubber floor mats,” be said. 


“What else do I have to pay for?” 

“Four tire rims to keep stones 
from bursting the gas tank. The 
cost to you is $999 per wbeeL Then 
there is the rustproof undercoating 
for $2,250, the front and sideview 
mirrors for $500, and the wind- 
shield for $2^00 ” 

“Is that it?” 

“Those are the major items, ex- 
cept for dealer car care, $ 2 ^ 00 , and 
the dealer markup which is 
$ 2 , 000 .” 

“Why the dealer markup?” 

Long John said, “That’s to make 
up for the discount I gave you at 
the beginning.”

“This is much mote than I in- 
tended to spend.” 

“I assure you you won’t be sorry. 
Once you own a 1986 Tonga you

The Associated Pros 

NEW YORK — A human-sized 
bronze copy of the Statue of liber- 
ty, one of several designed by Fre- 
dfcric-Auguste Bartholdi to raise 


money to build the statue, has been 
sold for 5148,500, Sotheby’s auc- 
tion bouse said. 

The figure, 4 feel, 5 Vi inches tall, 
was designed in about 1885. Nei- 
ther seller nor buyer was identified. 
Sotheby’s had estimated it to sell al 
$125,000 to $175,000. 


“As long as you put it that way, I 
guess HI take it” 

“Did you want to purchase a 
5Z500 service contract?” 

“You just told me it has a five- 
year warranty. Why do I need a 
service contract?” 

“If you have a gasket or seal go 
on you it will wreck the engine, and 
your regular warranty will leave 
you high and dry. I wish I'd had a 
service contract on the last three 
Tongas I owned.” 

“You're very persuasive, but the 
extras are killing me.” 

“Don’t give up on me, man, just 
after I stuck my neck out to get you 
a thousand dollars off on this car."

T OKYO — “I did not want to use the 
term ‘suicide, 1 ” said Maurice Pmguet; 
professor of French literature at die Uni- 
versity of Tokyo, who has written a history 
of sdf-inflicted death titled ‘‘La mart vo- 
lantaire au Japon” (Voluntary Death in 
Japan). 

“ ‘Vohmtaiy death* impties a rational 
decision, not pathological behavior. If I 
had used ‘shade,’ it would have been a 
psychological study.” 

Choba Nemo to, critic for the Asahi 
Evening News, called the book “extraordi- 
nary” and “a work of prodigious scholar- 
ship” about the “culture and philosophy of 
modem Japan.” The British poet and es- 
sayist James Kiricup wrote that the history, 
“composed in a French of unobtrusive ele- 
gance," was the “best ever written on this 
sad subject." 

Published in Paris by GaOimard in Sep- 
tember 1984, it has been translated into 
Italian and Portuguese, and will appear in 
a Japanese edition in January from Guko- 
mashobo Co. No plans have beat made for

“It’s a symptom of the contradictions of

in Japan more than 20 years, gives statistics 
showing that Japan is not the country with 
the most suicides: Hungary, Denmark and 
Austria have higher rates. But, he reveals, 
voluntary death in Japan is often a glori- 
fied, theatrical exhibition. 

From the disembowehnent of dishon- 
ored samurai in the Middle Ages to the 
poignant double suicides of courtesans and 
then 1 lovers during the Tokugawa dynasty, 
through unswerving tfatnilniw. pilots to the 
death of the writer Yukio Mi shim a on Nov. 
25, 1970, Pinguet’s cultural history is a 
drama of conflicts resolved. 

The final chapter, “The Mishima Act,” 
proves a fitting coda for the nation's meta- 
morphosis from a defeated imperial power 
into a victorious economic one. 

“Mishima wanted to take the whole past 
of Japan and throw it in their faces.” said 
Pmguet. “They received it as a strike in 
their economic befly. He rebelled not in the 
nam e of progress or the future, but in the 
name of the past, for the dead. The Japa- 
nese wanted to forget, forgive, far the past 
to be past, to live a new era. *No, no!’ cried 
Mishima. There’s a past and you must face 
it.’ 

“On Out,” added Pmguet, “he was 
right.” 


After giving a final harangue from a 
balcony, Mishiina frilled himself, with his 
dose friend Morita, by seppuku, at disem- 
bowebnent, at the Self-Defense Forces 
headquarters in Ichigaya, Tokyo. “KBs 
death was hill of violence, bordering on the 
psychotic,” Pmguet said. It was ineptly 
done, and bloody. 

The writer’s death was in part a protest 

against the new age and also a final display 
of na rcissism hy the man who had enacted 

such death scenes in films and photo- 
graphs. P mg uet said Mxshiina's death was 
.coldly rational, even intellectual, for he had 
“acted in harmony with his decision.” 

“His sacrifice was absolutely useless,” 
Pingoet said, “but he was a figure^ impor- 
tant in the media age, when people live for 
images of themselves. In this sense only 
was Mishima a modem hero.” 

To Japanese today, Mishima is regarded 
as an embarrassment. Middle-class busi- 
nessmen and intellectuals alike “regard 
him with discomfort,” Pmguet said. 

Use suicide of the tortured writer is al- 
most commonplace in Japan: Ryunosuke 
Akutagawa, Osama Dazm. Yasunari Ka- 
wabaia also kille d themselves. In 1972, 
Kawabata, Japan's only Nobel Prize win- 
ner in literature, died quietly, masking 
what is considered a suicide as an accident 
with a gas stove. 

The most com pelling instances to sap- 
port Pinguet’s theory of suicide in Japan as ■ 
“a moral act” were the deaths of General 
Maresnke Nogi and the young kamikaze 
pilots of World War DL (general Nogi and 
his wife killed themselves in September 
1912 after the funeral of Emperor Mriji. 
Nogi had long served the emperor, most 
notably in the 1904-1905 Russo-Japanese 
War, so he decided to follow him in death, 
as loyal retainers had died with thar mas- 
ters m the past 

Japan’s secret weapon during World 
War U was voluntary death, especially that 
of young pilots. As Finguet said, translat- 
ing from his book; “Good sen, good stu- 
dent, good soldier: The young pilot of the 
Vamnrare special umi was less the martyr 
of a fanatic faith than of -Ms own good 
heart and good will. He was not a dare- 
devil not a swaggerer or a reckless feDow. 
He was serious-minded, studious and dili- 
gent; tiie well-behaved child who has al- 
ways given satisfaction to his parents and 
to his teachers.” 

Thirty and forty years later other well- . 
behaved children, frustrated by the de- 
mands of school and family, killed them- 
selves because of failure, not for country. 
Pinguet describes child suicides as “coming 
in waves.” From 1965 to 1975, according to 



Qeirina Chopmon 

Pingoet: After death, Kfe 


the bode, the number of suicides of chil- 
dren under 14 doubled, from 46 to 95. For 
min ora, younger than 20, suicides num- 
bered around 700 each year. 

Today the nation is concerned about 
yime, or the bullying of elementary and 
junior high school students. A few of the 
victims are so desperate that they attempt 
to kill themselves. Seven children under 14 
have died this year by suicide because of 
harsh bullying by other children. Countless 
others react by attempting suicide, drop- 
ping out of school or running away. 

Another modern instance of voluntary 
death is pyako sfanju, family suicide, which 
is ?not a fashion, but a permanent trait of 
the Japanese. mentality,” said PingpeL 

“It stems from the too-close relation of 
mother and child, in which the mother 
considers the child her property. When sbe 
decides to kfil herself, sbe takes her own 
flesh with her." 

Praguer's book reports that more than 
200 Japanese mothers each year “consum- 
mate this double sacrifice." In 1975 alone, 
one expert counted 494 family suicides. 

- Oyako shirtju caused the professor to 
r uminate on Marcel Proust’s sorrow over 
his mother’s death when he was 35. Writing 
to a friend, Proust said how sad he was that 
he could not die with his mother. 

. Pinguefs approach to imderatandinfi 
Japanese suicide is one of comparison an# 


contrast- The narrative reminds readers of 
ciiwiiar attitudes and incidents in Western 
culture. The bloody suicide of the Roman 
Stoic Cato in the first chapter sets the 
book’s tone, while Sl Augustine’s condem- 
nation of suicide in the 5 th century, “being 
absolutely foreign to Buddhism," points up 
the' opposing ideas of the West. 

Finguefs fascination with Japan began 
when be arrived in 1958 to teach French 
literature and civilization at the University 
of Tokyo. He taught there untQ 1963. then 
was director of the French Institute in 
Tokyo until 1968. 

T fell in love with Japan at first sight— 
with the Japanese people and their way of 
living,” he said. 

In 1968, Pmguet returned to France and 
taught at the Sorbotme for 11 years. He 
visited Japan often during that time, and in 
1975, the critic Roland Barthes asked him 
to give a series of lectures on Japanese 
avflzzationat the Ecoles des Hautes Etudes 
in Paris, Finguet lectured on voluntary 
death. 

In 1979, he returned to Japan for anoth- 
er Tea ch in g assignment in the French de- 
partment of Tokyo University, and began 
writing his book. 

“The interest of the French in Japan is 
both an old and a new phenomenon,” he 
said. “France was the first Western country 
to be interested in Japanese culture in the 
19th century. But, 15 or 20 years ago, the 
French were not interested in Japan but in 
fhina and indnrfmigse Asia. Now it's very 
different, for the French were disappointed 
in the Cultural Revolution and the Viet- 
nam War. They felt deceived by Mao and 
the Vietnamese. 

“They understand that the Japanese had 
not the dramatic upheavals but a steady 
development that puts her in the forefront 
economically and strategically in Asia.' 

Bom in 1929 in the industrial town of 
Montlu$on, Pmguet went to Fads in 1947 
to study at tbeSorbomie. In 1949, at tie 
Ecole Nonnale Superieurc, he studied 
Greek, Latin and French literature in order 
to tearfi French classical humanities. In 
1953 he passed the examination agrigation, 
which earned him a teaching post in a 
secondary school in Troyes in Champagne. 
After two years there, he entered the 
French National Center for Scientific Re- 
search to study 19th-centuiy French litera- 
ture flTiH civilization. 

Now he wants to do for Japan what the 
Greek biographer Plutarch did for the an- 
cient worid: write about the lives of famous 
historical figures. 

“I want to write biographies of impor- 
tant people as Plutarch did, of emperarc, 
generals, empresses. Buddhist nuns, how 
they lived and bow the Japanese knew of 
them. 

“Tve spoken of death; now I want to 
write of life.”
