Washington Post Service 

WASHINGTON —The United 
States has asked to inspect secret 
nuclear installations tn Israel to 
verify that American-made timing 
devices, allegedly obtained by sur- 
reptitious means, have not been 
used in making atomic weapons or 
re-exported to other countries, Ui 
and diplomatic sources report. 

The devices, tiny switches known 
as loytrons, provide the precise 
tinting necessary for nuclear explo- 
sions. They are also used in ad- 
exploration equipment and medi- 
cal equipment 

According to the sources, Israel 
has not replied to die formal re- 
cjucstsf or mqiectiOTjma de^the 

the ritnatiou had potentially sensi- 
tive implications for U-S.-Isradi re- . 
lations because the Israeli govern- 
ment was aware that U-S. pdicy 
forbids overseas sales of krytrens 
unless th^y are subjected to strict 
case-by-case review and licensed by 
the State Department 

If Israel is unwilling to permit 
such inspections, the United States 
wants Israeli officials to come op 
with an alternative means of ac- 
counting for an estimated 500 to 
600 devices. 

Washington has also called on 
Israel to return unused devices still 
in its possession, because they were 
never licensed for export, the 
sources said. 

Jl became known this week that a 

{ federal grand jury in Los Angdes 
\ras investigating whether the de- 
vices were smuggled out of the 
country in violation of U-S. law.

Under the Atocuc Energy Act and 
tiie Export Administration Act, vi- 
olators could be liable to a 20-year 
prison term if it were proven that 
the devices had been exported for 
tire national security advantageof a 
foreign country. 

' It has been widely assumed for 
years that brad' can make atomic 
weapons. U.S. officials have said, 
however, that Israeli secrecy pre- 
vents the United States from team- 
ing whether Israel has such weap- 
ons. 

Israel's refusal to submit to inter- 
national controls and inspection 
has. also meant that, despite its 
dose ties to the United States, it is 
barred by UJS. nodear prohfera- 
ticn rules from obtaining devices 
snch as kzytrons that could be used 
in developing nuclear weapons. 

The Israeli. Defense Ministry, re- 


jury investigation, admitted that it 
had obtained a number of krytrons 
between 1979 and 1983 and still 
had a large stockpile. The ministry 
said the devices bad been used only 
in conventional equipment for re- 
search-and development and test- 
ing and that none had been sent to 
other co unt ries. 

A Pakistani citizen, Nazim Ah- 
med Vaid, wg arrested in June in 
Houston on charges that be had 
tried to obtain 50 krytrons and 
smuggle them out of the counby. 
The Pakistani government denied 
that ills actions were, connected to 
■its reported atomic bomb program.

Armed Men 
Kidnap a Top 
UN Official 
InBeirut 


Reusers 

BEIRUT — Armed men kid- 
napped a senior United Nations 
official in Moslem West Beirut on 
Wednesday, bundling him jato a 
car after smashing the windshield 
of his UN vehicle and holding a 
gun to his. driver’s h«»d. 

Aidan Walsh, 46, deputy direc- 
tor for the United Nations Relief 
and Works Agency, which asssts 
Palestinian refugees in the Middle 
East, was seized on a seafront bou- 
levard white going to work, officials 
of the agency said 

Mr. Walsh, an Irishman, was the 
second officer of the agency and 
the 12th foreigner abdneted in Leb- 
anon this year. He was the first 
person abducted since a wave of 
kidnappings in March. 

There was no hmnediat^ indica- 
tion of which group was responsi- 
ble for tire abduction. 

An official of the UN agency 
said that two cars containing eight 
gimtnen in- green camouflage fa- 
tigues blocked Ml Walsh’s, car. 
“Foot mm jumped out, pointed 
Kalashnikov rifles and' pistols at 
Walsh and ordered him out of the 
Gar," the official said. 

“The Palestinian driver tried to 
argue wilh them, saying Walsh was 
Irish and UNRWA' was hripmg 
people in Lebanon," tire official 
said, ?bnt one of the men smashed 
his windshield with a rifle butt and 
hdd a cocked rifle to his head.” 

Two gunmen then grabbed Mr. 
Walsh by tire arms as another 
poshed him from behind They 
bundled him into the back seat of 
one of their cars and drove off. ' 

{The police said that nine per- 
sons were killed and 22 were 
wounded in sectarian battles that 
raged along Beinn’s Green Line, in 
the 18th straight day of clashes on 
the line dividing tire city’s Christian 
and Modem sectors, The Associat- 
ed Press reoortcd.1 

Mr. Walsh has been in Beirut 
since September. His wife and 
three children live in Dublin. 

He was seized nearly two months 
after a British joarnafist, Alec Col- 
lett, who was on assignment as an 
information consultant in Beirut 
for tire agency, was kidnapped 
south of Barm on March 25. 

Mr. Collett was among nine for- 
eigners abducted in March. One, a 
Dutch Jesuit priest, was found 
murdered in the eastern Bekaa Val- 
ley and four^ were freed, but the rest 
are still held 

Mr. Walsh’s kidnapping brought 
to 10 the total of foreigner still 
rmaring after abduction in Mos- 
lan-cmtrdkd regions of Lebanon 
tins year and in 1984. 

Aside from Mr. Walsh and Mr. 
CoQett, those hdd indude five 
Americans, two French diplomats 
and a Saadi Arabian d i p lom at. 

Anonymous callers saying they 
represented Tshnmic Jihad, a Mos- 
lem fundamentalist group, have 
dawne d responsibility for most of 
the abductions.

PHILADELPHIA —The police 
reported Wednesday that they had 
found eight bodies in the charred

group MOVE. 

The house was destroyed after ; 
the police bombed it in an attempt 
to gain entry, and about 60 neigh- . 
boring dwellings also were burned. 

On Tuesday, Mayor W. Wilson

the police to drop a bomb on the 
house as appropriate, although the 
action “did not turn out as intend- •

MOVE follows a philosophy es- 
poused by its founder, Vincent 
Leaphart, who later took the name 
John Africa. Its members, who use 
the surname Africa, avoided con-

uncooked food and welcomed ver- 
min in their home as pert of their 
back-to-nature outlook. 


U.S. Progresses With Laser Weapon 


■ By William J. Broad 

New York Tunes Service 

NEW YORK — Scientists tit the 
Lawrence Livermore National 
Laboratory in California have 
made what appears to be an impor- 
tant advance m developing an X- 

anudear^^>?uJ^sc^^^ss^ 

The government scientists and 
others familiar with the top-secret 
research said Tuesday that the ad- 
vance has increased the brightness 
and thus the power of the X-ray 
device by focusing its rays. 

Major critics of a space-based 
missile defense system, which is 
strongly supported by President 
Ronald Reagan, have been briefed 
on the advance. 

Dr. Hans A. Bethe, the Nobd 
laureate physicist who has been a 
key aide, wrote to the chief scien- 
tist cm the space defense project 
soon after the briefing to say, “The 
X-ray laser should not be disquali- 
fied simply because it exploits a 
nuclear explosion as a power 
source:" 


Previously, Dr. Bethe has been 
publicly disparaging of the X-ray 
weapon, but it was not dear if the 
briefing was what changed his posi- 
tion. 

The X-ray laser has been under 
development for nearly five years 
at the Uvermore laboratory! It was 
a major catalyst in the start of the 
space defense plan, which Mr. Rea- 
gan calls the Strategic Defense Ini- 
tiative and which is widely known 
as “star wars." The first-generation 
device was known as Excalibur, 
from the le ge n d of King Arthur. 
The new device is known as Super 
Excatibur. 

In recent months, Reagan ad- 
ministration officials have tended 
to play down the X-ray laser’s im- 
portance in the five-year, $26 bil- 
lion research project on space 
weapons, emphasizing instead the 
use erf nonnuclear devices to de- 
stroy enemy missile s in space. Far 
example, these devices might hurl 
hanexplosive projectiles to destroy 
targets through their speed and im- 
pact 


As a result, one critic said Tues- 
day, the recent development at the 
Livermore laboratory is politically 
embarrassing, in a sense, to the 
Reagan administration. 

Increased brightness is crucial if 
the laser in the X-ray tang: of the 
spectrum is ever to be effective 
against and mresfles in 

space, according to both defenders 
and detractors of the device: 

The nuclear X-ray laser takes the 
power of a nuclear explosi o n and 
channel p jt into laser rods tha t emit 
powerful bursts of radiation. Over 
long distances in space, these rays 
would tend to spread out, gradually 
reducing the destructive power of 
the weapon. 

According to government scien- 
tists, a method at focusing the rays • 
was tested in Nevada in an under- 
ground explosion. The test oc- 
curred March 23, the second anni- 
versary of Mr. Reagan’s speech 
proposing a space shield to raider 
nuclear weapons *lmpoieQt and 
obsolete.” 



Hans A. Bethe 

According to the scientists, the 
key aspect of the advance is to use 
special optics to focus X-rays as 
they stream out of the nuclear ex- 
plosion. Many critics had viewed 
the task as virtually impossible, 
since X-rays penetrate matter rath-

ESTABLISHED 1887 

Output 
Declines 
In U.S. 

Drop Is First 
In Six Months, 
The Fed Says 

The Associated Press 

WASHINGTON — UB. indus- 
trial production fell 02 percent in 
April, the first decline in six 
months, the Federal Reserve Board 
reported Wednesday, 

The central bank said its index of 
the total output at U.S. factories, 
mines and utilities fell for. the first 
time since a 0.4-percent drop in 
October. April's decline followed a 
03-percent rise in March. 

[As the report of a dccline < ’in 
output was being made public, 
Larry Speakes, the White House 
spokesman, sought to allay fears 
about savings and loans associa- 
tions in Maryland, where two such 
institutions have been placed under 
a state-appointed overseer. United 
Press International reported from 
Washington. 

[“The federal system is safe and 
protected,” Mr. Speakes said. 
“We’re monitoring the situation at 
the Treasury. It has been discussed 
at the White House, but these are 
state matters." Details, Page 13.[ 

Sales of manufactured goods 
rose a slight 0.4 percent in March, 
and inventories declined for the 
first time in two years, the govern- 
ment said Wednesday. 

The Commerce Department said 
that sales totaled a seasonally ad- 
justed $4202 billion during March 
after a 03-percent February in- 
crease: 

Total business inventories 
dropped 0.1 percent in March to 
$578.2 billion. It was the first de- 
cline in inventories since a 0.6-pcr- 
cent drop in March, 1983. 

The setback in production re- 
flects the industrial sector’s strug- 
gle to overcome the effect of Amer- 
ica’s worsening trade performance, 
where imports are outpacing UB. 
exports by a record margin. Econo- 
mists have also cited (he trade defi- 
cit for limiting overall U.S. eco- 
nomic growth so far this year. 

' Analysts said the inventories de- 
cline reflected the general weakness 
in the overall economy and showed 
that businesses were trying to cut 
their stocks of unsold goods be- 
cause of weak demand. 

.. The Reagan administration and 
some economists said they viewed a 
03-percent increase in retail sales 
last month as an encouraging signal

Shultz Says 
Nothing Set 
On Summit 

The Associated Press 

VIENNA — Secretary of State 
George P. Shultz said Wednesday 
that in talks Tuesday with the Sovi- 
et Foreign Minister, Andrei A. 
Gromyko, the superpowers had not 
set a time or place for a U.S. -Soviet 
summit meeting. 

Mr. Shultz then left for Washing- 
ton, declining to say whether the 
proposed meeting had been dis- 
cussed during the six-hour session 
at the Soviet Embassy. 

He had said previously on Aus- 
trian television. “We have not been 
able to settle on when or where that 
meeting will take place." 

Mr. Shultz said that both sides 
obviously were interested in an ex- 
change of views between President 


not Social Security. Page 3.

Waxfuttgum Pea Service 

: MUNICH— After three and a 
half years of trying to persuade 
officials in Washington to toughen 
(tytr approach to Romania, David 
B. Funderburk has resigned as the 
U.S. am bassado r to Bucharest and 
decided to publicize a pdicy dis- 
pute with senior administration of- 
ficials. ' . 

Mr. Funderburk contends that 
UR. policy toward Romania is 
largely misconceived and ineffec- 
tive. 

Mr. Funderburk, in an interview 
Monday, mJM for .a revision of 
.UR. policy and a possible end to 
the mosl-favored-nation trading 
status and other concessions Wash- 
ington regularly grants the Bucha- 
rest government. 

Romania has received preferen- 
tial UJ3. treatment since tbe late 
1960s on the basis of a foreign 
policy that ofteo diverges from 
Moscow’s, But Mr, Funderburk 
contends that Romania’s indepen- 
dence is exaggerated and that its 


ties to the Soviet Union are more 
extensive don Washington policy- 
makers are willing to recognize. 

Moreover, he says, Romania's 
abysmal record on human rights 
and its lack of internal reforms are 
a mockery of U.S. policy goals. 

For example, he said, on tbe sur- 
face. it looked recently as if the 
Romanians woe complying with 
U.S. 'wishes to rekx emigration 
constraints. Hundreds were being 
granted permission to leave Roma- 
nia and were flooding the U5- Em- 
bassy requesting visas. 

But on closer examination, U.S. 
officials found they had been out- 
witted by tbe Romanian president, 
Nicoiae Cemsescn, he said. Many 
Romanians being let go turned out 
to be unqualified for admission to 
the United States. 

“We were ontfoxed by 
C eauses n i," Mr. Funderburk said. 
“He in effect domed people on ns

Soviet Raids in Pakistan 
Viewed as Bid to Deter 
Aid lor Afghan Rebels 


1 By Steven R. Wrisman 

New York Times Serna 

- ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — The 
■Soviet Union has stepped m air 
and artillery attacks Tn<iVto Paki- 
stan in recent months in what Paki- 
stani officials say is an attempt to 
undermine support here for Af- 
ghan rebels. 

The officials said Monday that 
their latest figures showed a dou- 
bling tn the rale of attacks by Sovi- 
et planes along the northwestern 
border. 'They said there had been 
"83 violations of Pakistani airspace 
since the b eginning of the year, 
compared with 88 such violations 
of 1984. 


The increased activity has stirred 
new concerns among American 
and Pakistani policy- makers that 
the attacks could generate resent- 
ment and fear among Pakistanis 
over the toll being taken by the 
fighting in Afghanistan. 

“The air incursions are impor- 
tant.” a U.S. official said, “because 
if they keep continuing, they could 
create a public perception that Pa- 
kistan is somehow helpless in the 
face of them. They have a bad psy- 
chological effect, and they give am- 
munition to the opponents of Paki- 
stan's policies." 

Indeed, the attacks appear to 
have been a factor in what some 
call a growing tendency by critics 
of President Mohammad Zia nl- 

Haq to question the government's 
strong support of the Afghan re- 
bels. Three milli on Afghans — one- 
fifth of the population — have fled 
into Pakistan since 1979. 

In interviews, Pakistani and 
American officials expressed full 
confidence that public support for 
the Af ghan rebels would not dimin- 


ish. They predicted, however, that 
be a debate 


there will be a debate over the wis- 
dom of that support when the Paki- 
stani Notional Asse 
next month. 

Such a debate would be likely to 


Assembly convenes 


force General Zia’s government for 
the first time to mount a vigorous 
defense of his policies and answer 
his critics in a public forum. 

A senior Pakistani official said 
that after meeting in Moscow in 
March with the Soviet leader, Mik- 
hail S. Gorbachev, General Zia 
concluded that the Russians were 
growing “impatient” with the stale- 
mate in Afghanistan. 

This official said that Mr. Gor- 
bachev had told General Zia that 
the Soviet Union was highly con- 
cerned about Pakistan's support 
for the guerrillas. The official said 
that Soviet incursions into Paki- 
stani airspace were thus seen as an 
attempt to “in timi date" Pakistan in 
what be called “a war of nerves." 

Far years, it has been widely 
known that the United States has 
joined with Arab countries and 
others to help provide covert assis- 
tance to the Afghan rebels, who are 
waging a fierce battle against more 
than 100,000 Soviet troops, who 
began entering Afghanistan in De- 
cember 1979. 

[The UR Senate voted unani- 
mously Tuesday to proride SIS 

mill i nn in direct hnmanitarian aid 

to Afghans affected by the Soviet 
occupation. The Associated Press 
reported from Washington. The 
vote marked the first time that the 
Senate had publicly designated 
funds for this purpose.) 

The Soviet intervention prompt- 
ed Resident Ronald Reagan to 
provide Pakistan with a 51. 6-bil- 
lion mili tary aid package, including 
40 F- 16 jet fighters. 

"Those planes are not meant for 
Pakistan to go out and find Soviet 
planes to attack-in Af ghanistan, ” a 
U.S. official said. “They are meant 
to prevent the Soviets from attack- 
ing the bean of Pakistan. That de- 
terrence has worked."

CAIRO — Israeli and 
negotiators held talks Wednesday 
to resolve issues that have clouded 
their relations and have blocked a 
proposed summit meeting between 
President Hosni Mubarak and 
Prime Minister Shimon Pines of 
IsraeL 

If the talks succeed, sources close

DHAKA — Exporters of frogs’ 
legs, claiming financial loses, urged 
Wednesday that a ban on those 
exports be ended, but the govern- 
ment replied that Bangladesh 
needs more frogs to fight insect 
pests. 

The four-month ban on frog 
hunting was to “give the frogs a 
chance to breed in safety,” an offi- 
cial statement said.

million frogs each year, officials 
said. If the frogs were left alive, 
they would eat more than 100 tons 
of insects, particularly mosquitoes,

the knowledge of the Pakistani gov- 
ernment. 

The Soviet Union asserted re- 
cently that 24 Soviet and Afghan 
soldiers were killed whOe trying to 
escape April 27 from a 
camp about 10 miles (16 
ters) from Peshawar, near the Af- 
ghan bonder. The Pakistani goveru- 
ment, however, has denied 
knowledge that any Soviet or Af- 
ghan prisoners have been held in 
the coantry or that any were lulled 
in an escape attempt. 

Senior guerrilla and other Af- 
ghan sources, speaking an condi- 
tion of anonymity, said in inter- 
views that the guerrillas had been 
bringing Soviet prisoners across the 
border since 1981.

York, and Senator Robert W. Kas- 
ten Jr., Republican of Wisconsin, 
authors of a major tax-simplifica- 
tion proposal in Congress, have 
urged the White House to bring the 
top rate below 30 percent. 

Officials said this idea was dis- 
carded Tuesday became the reve- 
nue loss could not be easily offset 
elsewhere in the plan. Mr. Ragan 
has pledged that the plan will be 
revenue-neutral, m«mmg that it 
will bring in approximately the 
same revenues as existing tax laws. 

White House officials said they 
did not expect congressional advo- 
cates of tax simplification to em- 
brace the new plan immediately. 
They said they hoped it would be 
seen as a “framework” for produc- 
ing legislation in the next few 
months.

diation first. 

A four-member US. team at- 
tended the afternoon session of die 
talks. U.S. Embassy sources said 
the Americans were participating 
as observers only in talks concern- 
ing the border dispute and would 
not be on hand for other talks 

Relations between Israel and 
Egypt soured after the Israeli inva- 
sion of Lebanon in June 1982. Mr. 
Mubarak recalled his ambassador 
to protest the invasion and a mas- 
sacre of Palestinian refugees by 
Lebanese Christian militias who 
supported IsraeL 

Meanwhile, riot police used 
truncheons to rout hundreds of 
protesters outside Cairo’s mam 
synagogue. The protest appeared 
related to reports that a ceremony 
commemorating the 1948 founding 
of Israel was planned inside the 
syna g og u e. The Israeli Embassy 
dented that a ceremony was 
planned. 


Mr. WIesenthal wrote to Chan- 
cellor Kohl in response to a letter 
requesting assistance as West Ger- 
many prepares for a visit in early 
July by General Alfredo Stroess- 
ner, the Paraguayan leader. 

A West German government 
spokesman, Karin Konrad, said 
Tuesday that she was unable to 
confirm the exchange of tetters. 

General Stroessner, who was 
bom in Hof, Bavaria, mid last viat- 
ed West Germany in 1973, win be 
ftted in Bavaria by an organization 
called the Institute for the Devel- 
opment of German-Paraguayan 
Relations. He is expected to be re- 
ceived by Bavaria's premier, Franz 
Josef Strauss. 

The visit has been criticized by 
the main West German opposition 
party, the Social Democrats, and 
President Richard von Wrizsficker 
has, according to officials, extend- 
ed a summer vacation abroad to 
avoid having to greet General 
Stroessner. 

Mr. Wiesenthal said recent re- 
ports from agents and informers 
had convinced him that Dr. Men- 
gele remains in hiding under Para- 
guayan government protection. 


Mr. Wiesenthal said that Chan- 
cefiorKrihL in a letter dated March 
8, said be intended to “raise em- 
phatically” the issue of Dr. Mea- 
gde’s extradition. In view of the 
Paraguayan government’s asser- 
tions that the wanted man is not in 
Paraguay, the chancellor contin- 
ued, West German pressure would 
be more effective if Mr. Wiesenthal 
were to supply particulars to sub- 
stantiate ms belief that Dr. Men- 
gele is there. 

Mr. Wiesenthal told the chancel- 
lor that the Paraguayan govern- 
ment was in a position to profess 
that Dr. Mengele does not live in 
Paraguay because he has been liv- 
ing there since 1979 under an as- 
sumed name and as a citizen of an 
unidentified Central American 
country. 

In Februaiy 1981, Mr. Wie- 
senthal informed Hans-Eberhard 
Klein, the Frankfurt prosecutor re- 
sponsible for the West German 
case against Dr. Mengele, that the 
doctor obtained a passport of that 
Central American country in 1979. 
He was said to have done so 
through an office in the Washing- 
ton area.

Swedish Teachers’ Strike Is Ended 


STOCKHOLM (Reuters) — The main public employees’ union a 
Sweden called off a 13-day strike by teachers on Wednesday hut said that 
work stoppages by other civil servants would continue until wage de- 
mands were met 

Lara Backfill of the TCP-5 union said the strike by same 6,000 teachers 
would end at midnight Wednesday .to refieve pressure cm students and # 
their parents. “We baieve the teaems' strike has made hs point," hesaid. 
About 23,000 teachers still will fac affected by a lockout imposed hut 
weekend, unless employers respond to the union ges ture and allow 
schools to reopen. 

The union’s chief negotiator, Rune Larssan, said the union waseigar to 


get negotiations started again. Swedish companies said Wednesday they 
would face serious problems if the strike, winch has reduced the coantiy's 
foreign trade to a trickle, was not settled soon. About 70,000 poUfo-sector 
posts have been unmanned because of the strike and retaliatory lockout, 
which have halted air traffic and dosed customs offices at aD dux a few

a central role in developing the 
drogen bomb and has vigorously 
promoted development of the mi- 
clear X-ray laser. 


“To turn it into a weapon system

tests,” the scientist added. 




Trying Lo interpret the results of 
underground nurfwir tests is com- 
plex. Analysis and debate often 
continue for months after. ' • 

In an interview, Dr. Bethe re- 
ferred to Mr. Reagan’s plan, say- 
ing: “I stifl fed thatSDI asa whole 
is nonsense, but within it one 
should not disc rinmiarft agains t the 
X-ray laser. You should not rule

litical^ nasoos.” 

Although weapons experts in the 
national laboratories are eager to 
pursue X-ray laser research, son* 
military officials in the paragon 
see substantial difficulties.. The 
problems include treaties barring

LONDON —Unease within the 
Conservative Party over Prime

hardline economic policies contin- 
ues to grow, keeping pace with in- 
creases in the unemployment rate 
and the opposition's standing in

The latest attack from within 
Mis. Thatcher’s party, ioUowinpits

splinter group, called Conservative 
Ceater Forward, by32 Conserva-

these are anathema to Mrs. Thatch- 
- ^ ex’s free-market, private-enterprise

Such outspeten dissent is nor- 
mally the province of the Labor 
Party, with militan t leftists fre- 
quently differing with the party’s 
more subdued center-left. Mr. Pym 
tempered his remarks with opening

bers of his group were not “disloy- 
al** and disagreed not with Mrs. 
Thatcher's objectives but with her

of those polled said Labor was best 
able to deal with it 

Only 38 percent said they were 
satisfied with Mrs. Thatcher as 
prime minister- As have other re- 
cent surveys, the Gallop Poll 
showed voting support for Labor to 
be several points higher than for

MANILA — Several human 
rights lawyers have been arrested, 
recently, and attorneys* groups and 
opposition politicians say that 
President Ferdinand E. Marcos’s 
government is Dying to iotiondafe 
rights lawyers andfrighten opper 
seats. 

Five he” 1 ™ rights lawyers have 
been arrested and detained by the 
mili tary in the past two weeks. All 
are membra of the Free Dgal As- 
sistance Group, an organization of 
290 lamas throughout the Philip- 
pines who handle human rights and 
national security cases. 

The lawyers in the group typical- 
ly defend clients against the gov- 
enunoai and the rnSiary. They are 
often some of tbe most outspoken 

, ; members of the political opporitkm 

in then local regions. 

“These arreas are politically mo- 
tivated,” said Homobono Adaza, 
an opposition member of the nar 
tional assembly Iran die sonthem 

island of Mmdarao. “The govern- 
ment is trying m dismantle the legal 
apparatus of the of^osition.” 

A human rights lawyer, Marcos 
^ Rbonar Jr^ was arrested Monday 
' in Davao, the largest dty erf Minda- 

nao, the southern Philippines is- 
land where the Communist New 
. V People’s Army has its stronghold.. 
V Two otbermembcisof the Frre 
Legal Assistance Groiqj, Laureate

arrested Friday in Davao. Romeo 


Astudfllo and Alberto 'Benesa, two 
lawyers from thc l^al group in 
Abra Province on the mam is 
of Luzon, were taken into militaiy 
custody two weds ago. . 

The lawyers have been arrested 
on the authority erf so-called pre- 
ventive detention actions. A pre- 
ventive detention action allows the 
military to arrest a person without 
an application to civilian authori- 
ties if, with Mr. Marcos's ; 
it is detemrined that an h 
would “findaagerpuWic coder and 
safety as w^l as the stabffity of the 
state beforeproper warrant could 
be obtabmd.*^ 

The detained lawyers have not 
yet been shown, the charges or de- 
tention actions rnithoriang their 
arrests, according to lawyos from 
the lepd assistance group. 

“Marcos can do whatever he 
wants and he has decided to crack 
down on human rights lawyers,"’ 
said Joker Arroyo, chairman of the 
Human Rights Committee of the 
Free Lqgal Assistance Group. “The 
government is instilling fear in 
those who oppose h.” 

The ntight erf the lawyers has 
alarmed a UR. legal group, .whidi 
monitors devdopments in the Phil- 
ippines. 

“This sysematic harassment of 

lawyers fato With hmnan rights 

cases is vary disturbing to us." said 
DianeOrenthdier, deputy mrector 
-of the Lawyers Coriumfiee for In- 
ternational Human Rights. 

The. government has essentially 


contended that those arrested were 
in subversion or aiding 
Little has been said 


'officially about the two lawyers in

lary in Mindanao did issue a press 
release explaining the detention of 
Mr. Hagan. 

In tire press statement, the mili- 
tary $ajd that Mr. bad “late-

“So now the militaiy has a free

tough contract negotiations.

* Weinberger Makes Proposal 

Defense Secretary Caspar W. 
Weinberger recommended Tues- 
day that Congress reduce inflation 
and other contingency accounts in 
the Pentagon budget rather than 
cut weapons prog rams. The Wash- 
ingionPost reported. 

He listed 54 billion marts from 
the fiscal 1985 budget that could be 
credited to fiscal 1986 to avoid an- 
ting into military programs. This 
would “reduce meukesbood” that 
the Pentagon would have to come- 
to Congress later this year to re- 
quest supplemental funds for fiscal 
1986, he said. 

Mr. Weinberger's recommenda- 
tions came after he had studied the 
impact of the Senate’s action on 
military spending, the Pentagon 
said in a press release. It said he 
concluded “that tbe new budget 
levels cannot be accommodated 
without seriously impacting Che de- 
fense program." 

Under Mr. Weinberger offer, 
$1.6 inDion would come from the 
surplus in this year’s account to 
cover inflation; $15 billion from 
money that has been set aside but 
not obligated to contractors, with 
$1 bffKoE of tfrat amnnnt in pro- 
curement and most of the remain- 
der in research; and $900 milli on m 
cash kept in various funds to pay 
bills. 


ay and, if there is no resolu- 
tion, tbe i 


pilots’ group says that Un- 
ited’s 4,900 pitots wiU walk out. 

[Negotiators opened their third 
consecutive day of federally medi- 
ated talks Wednesday, United 

Press Infwnatinnai reported frOXD 

Boston. Both sides reported little 
pro gres s Tuesday.] 

The central icctk is whether the 
pilots' group win let United hire 
new pilots for lower wages than it 
now pays beginners and main tain 
them for many years at Iowa pay 
than that earned currently by Unit- 
ed pilots. 

United says that in a strike it 
would fly some of its schedule with 
new pilots that it has been training, 
a nd with an u ndetenmned number 
of management pilots. 


By Robert C Siner . 

fiuenuuional Herald Tribune 

WASHINGTON — Provisions 
that could levy a minimum tax on 
many Americans working abroad 
who claim the earned income and 
bousing exdnaons have been intro- 
duced by. Senator Daniel Patrick 
Moynihan, Democrat of New 
York. 

The measure would impose a 15- 
percent tax an combined salary 
and allowances, interest, and divi- 
dend income exceeding $40,000, or 

550,000 for a roamed couple filing 
a joint return. Corporations would 


have to pay a 1 5~pereenl anmmum 
tax on income exceeding $100,000. 

At present, the first $80,000 of 
income earned by Americans 
abroad is excluded from UR. taxes. 

Taxpayers would still be allowed 
to take snch personal deductions as 
charitable contributions, medical 
expenses, home-mortgage interest, 
UR. state and local taxes and casu- 
alty tosses. However, tax-shelter 
losses and preferential treatment of 
certain forms of income would not 
be allowed. 

Applied to taxpayers abroad, the 
mininmm tax would be computed 


by finding tbe “net taxable in- 
come,’’ the total of all salaries, bo- 
nuses and allowance. 

From this amount tbe taxpayer 
would subtract $40,000. or $50,000 
for a married couple; the personal 
exemption and the major personal 
deductions or the standard deduc- 
tion. 


Police in U,S, Turning 
To More Powerful Arms 


However, industry observers say 
many pilots who bde 


long to the as- 
sociation would have to cross the 
picket Hue before United could fly 
a agmficant portion of its schedule. 

United carried 41 million pas- 
sengers last year, the most of any 
UR. currier Hie number repre- 
sents about 15 percent of all do- 
mestic aMinc trips. 

Tbe salary table United wants 
for the pilots is caBed a “two- tier" 
schedule. American Airlines nego- 
tiated such a contract with the Al- 
lied Riots Association in Novem- 
ber 2983. and United says if must 

haw* the <am»» filing tn remain po m - 

pedtive. 

United is healthy financially . It 
led the industry in revenue last year 
at $6.2 billion and operating profit 
of $564 mfiffon. Inexorably, as 
American Air hires more banners 
at cheaper wages, its costs will go 
down compared with United's. 

“Tbe company’s No. 1 objective 
is to obtain a cost-competitive con- 
tract without a strike," said a Unit- 
ed spokesman. Chuck Novak. He

Local Balloting 
In Ulster Tests 


IRA’s Following 


The Associated Pros 

BELFAST — Northern Ireland 
voted in local elections Wednesday 
that were seen as a significant test 
of tbe outlawed Irish Republican 
Army’s following in the province. 

Tbe ballot marked the fim time 
that the overwhelmingly Catholic 
IRA’s legal political wing, Sinn 
Fan. has competed in elections 
across the predominantly Protes- 
tant province and promised to par- 
ticipate actively in politics. 

About 1.1 milKon people were 
eligible to vote for party lists cover- 
ing 989 candidates for 26 local 
councils. First results of the hand- 
counted ballot were not expected 
before Thursday. 

For the first time, Shut Fern is 
entering elections across the prov- 
ince and, equally important, is 
promising to take whatever seats it 
wins and participate actively in 
politics. 

Candidates from Sinn Fein con- 
tested 91 of the 566 seats up for 
electi o n. 


In most police dep artm ents, the 
six-shooter is still standard equip- 
ment. But many police depart- 
ments have replaced the 38-cali- 
ber, six-shot revolver with 
semiautomatic weapons that fire 
more shots, reload more quickly 
and are more powerful. 

It is generally the smallest of the 
nation's 19,000 police and sheriffs 
departments that are first to adopt 
new weaponry because they can 
make changes with less expense, 
according to Leslie Dees, president 
of the Police Marksman Associa- 
tion, an organization of policemen 
who are gun enthusiasts. 

Another reason, Mr. .Dees said, 
is that the smaller departments 
“are the ones where the Green Be- 
ret goes back and becomes the man 
in charge of the potiee department 
because he’s the expert” Green Be- 
rets are members of the UR. Army 
Special Forces, an elite unit trained 
in the use erf special weapons and 
tactics. 

“We see that,” said Robert Haas, 
a spokesman for Smith A Wesson, 
K .gun manufacturer. “The guys 
who were in Vietnam are touch 
more concerned about their weap- 
ons than older officers." 

Ubi A. Kooks, 52, Philadel- 
phia’s managing director and the 
man wfap coordinated Monday’s 
daylong siege against toe MOVE 
stronghold, is a retired major gen- 
eral who saw two tours of duty in 
Vietnam. » 

There are^reasons for using new 
weapons other than the simple fact 
that they are available or because 
officers arc mtrigncd.by high tech- 
nology. Reasons contributing to 


r esson six-shoot- 
as wito 9mm scaaiaiiiomaiic weap- 
ons made by Heckler and Koch. 
The new weapons carry nine bul- 
lets and reload three times as 
quickly as toe old ones, according 
to Capuin Joseph Kobus. a 
spokesman for toe department. 

• In Chicago, toe Hostage, Bar- 
ricade and Terrorist Incident Team 
was having a tough time maneuver- 
ing with their 12-gauge shotguns 
and 30-06 rifles, said John Gavin, 
an officer in the Uniform Equip- 
ment Standards section. 

“We looked for an intermediate 
assault weapon fra going up small 
stairways in crowded apartment 
braises," he said. They chose a 323- 
caliber rifle wito a collapsible 
stock. 

• In New York, where police 
killed an emotionally disturbed 
woman in an eviction proceeding 
last year, toe search is on fra nonle- 
toal weapons. The Emergency Ser- 
vices squad has purchased several 
stun gyms called lasers and is ex- 
perimenting wito a type that atta- 
ches to poles, said Inspector Ray- 
mond Abruzzi. commanding 
officer of the squad. 

Tascrs shoot electrically charged 
darts that cause a loss of muscle 
control Stun guns are similar in 
effect, but the pocket-size weapons 
must touch a person directly. 

Five police officers have been 
indicted in New York on charges of 
using stun guns to torture suspects^ 
but stun guns were not issued to 
them from the department. They 
were not members of Inspector 
Abruzzfs squad.

The excellence of Beefeater Gin springs initially 
from the water. 

In factfrom the Burrough family's own artesian 
well, a mere mile or so awayfrom the Houses of 
Parliament 

It is the singular quality of this water that is 
so important to the distillation of really fine London 
DryGin. 

And a vital ingredient in the original recipe 
passed down by James Burrough in 1820. 

Upon which, you could say, Beefeater's

Carry On With SALT-2 


Id kinder tunes, there would be no question 
but that the United States would deride with- 
out much fuss to keep in force the terms of an 
old, admittedly imperfect arms control agree- 
ment while working on a new and supposedly 
better one. For the Reagan administration, 
however, it is a tough question whether to 
continue respecting the never ratified SALT-2 
treaty, which the president at first pronounced 
“fatally flawed” but later reluctantly agreed 
not to undercut so long as Moscow did not 
undercut it either. The date at which the treaty 
would haw aspired is coming up, and even 
sooner the United Stales must deride whether 
to retire some old missiles in order. to make 
room for new ones under the SALT-2 lid. 

Within the administration a range of opin- 
ion is evident. Important figures on the politi- 
cal side continue to regard SALT-2 as a sym- 
bol of the failure of past arms control accords 
to do more to strengthen American security 
and as a damaging restraint on American 
arms. b uilding programs. That the Soviets say 
they can still live with SALT-2 is taken as 
evidence that the restraints are not tough 
enough. It is suggested that breaking out of 
SALT-2, far from complicating the Geneva 
talks, would give Moscow added incentive to 
consider the proposals Washington is making 
there. Anyway, why should the United States 
honor an" agreement when many questions 
about Soviet compliance are still hanging? 


Elsewhere in the administration, including 
on its. 


There is, for instance, a disposition to 

that the Soviets are considerably better placed 
to deploy threatening new weapons than is the 
United States without SALT-2. To understand 
why, you need merely look at the bedraggled 
history of the MX. Military officials can iden- 
tify no good military reason to go past the 
SALT thrifts. Diplomats worry how American 
allies would react to the spectacle of an Ameri- 
can breakout. Many observers fed that Con- 
gress would reset sharply to that spectacle by 
miring new budget hostages. The best cure for 
the flaws in past restraints and verification 
standards, many of these officials fed, is pro- 
gress in Geneva — something arguably more 
likely to come in an atmosphere undisturbed 
by the detonation of SALT-2. 

Liberal arms controllers argue that the very 
process of arms control is as important as the 
product — the agreements, which so far have 
turned out to be pretty thin. At this late d ate, 
however, no one can orally think that President 
Reagan is going to change spots and adopt this 
sort of questionable reasoning. 

Nor is h necessary for him to do sa In his 
own administration, among people devoted to 
his conservative principles, there is comfort- 
able support for continuing to observe the 
terms of SALT-2. He should do it

Helms vs. Birth Control 


Senator Jesse Helms and his supporters are 
continuing their fight to dismantle U.S. aid far 
birth control programs in developing coun- 
tries. Senator Helms has attached a crippling 
amendment to the Foreign aid bill now being 
considered on the Senate floor and may try to 
odd even more destructive language. 

Ostensibly the Helms amendment is intend- 
ed only to prevent U.S. money from being used 
for coerced abortion and infanticide in China 
— alarming reports of such practices have 
been widely circulated — and this is an objec- 
tive with udiich no one would quarrel But the 
fact is that, under current law. no U.S. money 
now supports such activities either directly or 
indirectly. The Helms amendment is- thus un- 
needed for its stated objective. 

It is also dangerous. It would prevent any 
U.S. money from being used, either directly or 
indirectly, in any country that “permits, offi- 
cially or in practice, infanticide or coerced 
abortion,” or by any organization that gives 
any kind of direct or indirect aid to such 
country. Senator Helms states in a draft report 
that the language is dehberatdy “very broad'’ 
so that aid may be cut off not only to China 
but also to any other country in which the 
forbidden practices might be suspected, even if 
they were without official sanction. 

Since infanticide is a tragic occurrence in 
nearly every country of the world, including 


the United States, a rigorous application of the 
amendment obviously could serve to terminate 
all birth control aid. The most direct casualty 
of this amendm ent would be U.S- assistance to 
the useful and well-accepted United Nations 
birth control programs. The United Nations 
includes China among its aid recipients. How- 
ever, contrary to recently published allega- 
tions, UN money is narrowly confined to stat- 
ed purposes and no UN money has ever been 
used for abortion, whether voluntary or co- 
erced, much less for infanticide. 

Senators who are rightly concerned that 
U.S. money not be misused do not have to rely 
on birth control advocacy groups for this as- 
surance. The Reagan administration's own 
Agency for, International Development has 
repeatedly investigated UN programs and re- 
affirmed that they conform to long-standing 
U.S. policy against aiding even voluntary 
abortions. The most recent report, issued only 
two months ago, once a gain gave the United 
Nations a clean bill of health. Of course, the 
United States should use all its moral suasion 
to press for stronger action by the Chinese 
government against coercive practices. But 
senators should remember that voluntary fam- 
ily planning programs are the best-proven and 
most humane way to reduce resort to the age- 
old practices of abortion and infanticide.

Private Bank Insurance 


Only a few weeks ago Ohio’s privately 
insured savings and loan associations budded 
under a wave of scandal and depositor panic. 
Now Maryland’s privately insured thrift insti- 
tutions are under severe strain due to large 
withdrawals of deposits. Two of these institu- 
tions have been takeover by the conservators 
of the insurance fund but others are in jeopar- 
dy and looking for federal help. 

Nothing that has happened in Ohio or 
Maryland puts federally insured bank deposits 
at risk. But the federal government’s concern 
is certainly justified. The two crises suggest 
that private insurance offers inadequate pro- 
tection to depositors and poses a threat to 
America’s national banking system. 

Congress should insist that privately insured 
thrifts switch to federal insurance or, if they 
cannot qualify, dose up shop. 

In Maryland — and also in Massachusetts, 
Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Ohio — 
siate-chartered savings and loans have been 
able to avoid tighter federal regulation of lend- 
ing and higher federal insurance p remiums by 
joining private insurance pools. When two 
such Maryland thrifts were about to default on 
obligations last week, the insurer stepped in. 

The Maryland Savings Share Insurance 
Corporation could probably have covered the 
losses of the two. but if others also get into 
deeper trouble the fund might run short. If 
that should happen, the Maryland Legislature 
would have to decide whether to make good on 
the insurance fund's unpaid debts or leave 
depositors to lose some of their money. Surely 


the state bears some responsibility to deposi- 
tors who had reason to believe that state regu- 
lators would protect them. 

That is not, however, the end of the matter, 
as uneasiness in North Carolina shows. The 
line between a state's private insurance system 
and federally insured systems elsewhere is not 
a reliable barrier against losses of confidence. 

When Ohio's private system went belly up, 
depositors in nearby federally insured Ohio 
banks were sophisticated enough to under- 
stand that their money r emained safe. But the 
Ohio crisis triggered an abrupt decline in the 
value of the dollar overseas. How foreigners — 
or Americans — would react to marc bad news 
from Maryland is not known. Bat a world 
financial system already buffeted by explosive 
movements of capital 1 would surely be better 
off if it avoided gratuitous strains. 

The prudent course would be for Congress 
to set a timetable for ending all private deposit 
insurance systems. Even federal insurance is 
no panac ea. Many federally insured savings 
and loan' institutions are in weak financial 
condition — and getting weaker. Regulatory 
reforms to prevent their manager s from bet- 
ting the store on speculative loans and in- 
vestments are overdue. 

But federally insured thrifts, however seri- 
ous their problems, at least have the benefit of 
Congress's determination — and capacity — 
to guarantee their deposits. That cannot be 
said for deposits in the still privately insured 
offshoots of the thrift industry.

FROM OUR MAY 16 PAGES, 75 AND 50 YEARS AGO 


1910: A Leader Soon in South Africa 
JOHANNESBURG — The situation here on 
the eve or Lord Gladstone's arrival is most 
interesting. Every colonial Premier is on the 
way to Cape Town, where they will meet the 
new Governor-General of South Africa [on 
May 17]. Lord Gladstone will also meet Lord 
Sdborae, high commissioner for South Africa, 
and will hold consultations with him in order 
to familiarize himself with the situation. Mr. 
John X. Merriman, os the oldest politician in 
the oldest colony in South Africa, Cape Colo- 
ny, would in the ordinary course be constitu- 
tionally chosen Premier or United South Afri- 
ca, but the whole country, with the exception 
of the Orange River Colony and the western 
portion of Cape Colony, favors the appoint- 
ment of General Louis Botha on account of 
the latter’s youth and striking personality. 


1935: European Trade Talks Begin 
BRUSSELS - — Fresh attempts to promote the 
economic unity of Europe were launched when 
the European Economic Congress opened its 
three-day session here [on May 151. Among the 
delegates are the former Belgian Premier, 
George Theums, and M. Pierre Forthomme, 
who negotiated the Belgium-United States 
trade agreement M_ Paul Hymans, Belgian 
Foreign Minister, delivered the op ening 
speech. Most delegates approve of Aristide 
BriancTs proposal in 1930 for a “pan-Europe- 
an customs union,” but owing to the present 
political difficulties it is expected that the 
congress wfl] content itself with urging that the 
advanced ground seized by the League of Nar 
lions committee of experts in September, 193], 
and lost in the subsequent outburst of national 
tariffs and quotas, be again attempted.

The CIA in Beirut: Less Than Extreme Caution 


W ASHINGTON — The latest front-page 
appearance of the CIA provides one 
more piece of irrefutable evidence that the 
United Slates should engage in ambitious co- 
vert operations only with the utmost caution. 

Even if the agency were absolutely first-class 
in such matters, which it is not, the nature of 
American society makes exposure of failure' 
practically certain. When that occurs, Ameri- 
can agents become subject to retaliation and a 
precious resource of national security, the 
whole intelligence community, ^ets a black eye. 

Terrorism in Lebanon provides the back- 
ground to the most recent fiasco. As that coun- 
try began to disintegrate in factional warfare 
last year. Americans on the spot became in- 
creasingly subject to violent incidents, ranging 
from threats through kidnapping to car bomb 
attacks on the U.S. Embassy and the marine 
headquarters in Beirut Several top officials — 
including Secretary of Slate George Shultz, 
CIA Director William Casey and National Se- 
curity Adviser Robert McFarlane — came to 
the conclusion the United States should devel- 
op, if only to protect its agents, a covert capari- 
ty to penetrate and pre-empt action by anti- 
American terrorist organizations. 

At the end of 1984 Mr. Reagan signed the 
order authorizing such action, ms decision was 

cleared with the chair men and vice chair men of u 
the House and Senate intelligence commitiees. ’ 
With those mandates, the CIA began to devel- 
op a covert counterintelligence capability in 
cooperation with the intdligaice arm of the 
government of President Amin GemayeL But 
the Lebanese regime is more a faction among 
factions than a central government. 

After receiving American training in coun- 
terterrorism, Lebanese intelligence agents went 
into business for themselves. On March 8 
tried to wipe out Mohammed Hussein Fi

la Vi the leader of an extremist Shiite group 
thought to be responsible for terrorist attacks 
against Americans in Lebanon. 

A powerful bomb was exploded near his 
home in the outskirts of Beirut. Some 80 people 
were killed by the explosion, box not Mr. Fad- 
lallab The story of that fiasco leaked. An ac- 
count was published in The Washington Post of 


trying to shift the blame to others. But there are 
constants that run bade from the Beirut ind- 
dent through the muting of Nicaraguan harbors 
to many previous episodes. They provide a set 
of the givens, the normal ingredients that have 
to be considered in planning any covert opera- 
tions - — the material for fust-guessing. 

For one thing America is an open society.

criminal stupidity to suppose

May 12. Even before the story was out, various 
parties began running for cover. 

Some officials in t fee CIA claimed they had 
always insisted that the operation be limited to 
fact-gathering because anti-terrorist opera- 
tions were too dangerous. The CIA itsdf put 
ota a statement saying it had "no foreknow- 
ledge of the bombing modem." The agency 
disclaimed “any training of 'Lebanese security 
forces” involved in the Marti 8 incident. 

Other intelligence operatives blamed Con- 


gress for leaking the story, and the press for 


along toe 

publishing iL They asserted that vengeance 


would now be wreaked on American agents in 
Lebanon. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the new 
Democratic vice chairman of the Senate Intelli- 
gence Committee, indicated that he wanted to 
some questions — as if he were not bound 
the actions of the previous vice chairman. 
Second-guessing faunre is nearly as odious as 


pul : 
by tl 


grass and to the press and television. It is naive 
to 
thm 

ceed, can long be" kept ; 

Second, working with foreign agents is par- 
ticularly tricky. They have thor own agendas. 
They usually have scores to settle with various 
parties in their own country. Some of their 
targets are not necessarily the targets of Ameri- 
can foreign policy. Foreigners working in the 
terrorist field especially tend to be flaky, and 
they are therefore doubly unreliable. 

Third, the cost of publicized failure runs 
high. The intelligence community comes back 
into the public pulonr. U.S. agents abroad be- 
come subject to retaliation. A major asset of 
foreign policy is weakened, if not paralyzed. 

Extreme caution should be exdreued before 
en gaging in covert operations. But the Reagan 
administr ation has thrown caution to die 
winds. Exrept for the oversight committees of 
Congress, it has practically wiped out institu- 
tional checks on dubious intelligence business. 
It has converted the presdent’s Foreign Intelli- 
gence Advisory Board into a haven for right- 
wingers. And it has maintained at the helm of 
Central Intelligence a figure who combines in- 
sensitivity to ethical questions with a gung-ho 
spirit when it comes to clandestine operations 
of the most extensive kind — Wflliam'Casey.

The argument has been made that Marxism 
itsdf is really the means by which the intel- 
lectual revolutionary puB down his rival for 
power, the working-class rebel. Marxism says 
that revolution is a science. You have to be an 
educated person to understand it, so as to be 
able to tell the workers what to do. 

Power and fame are the spurs, more often 
than altruism — which is exactly thesame as 
for the politician himsdf. except foathe is more

In the end, nonetheless, tbepofitirian is near-

innocent slave, as Keynes said, of some long- 
dead economist orphuosopher. The intellectual 
wins in the end. There is no joy in this for the

fared the Nobd Prize and rich consultancies 
while alive; but it is probably safer that way.

“On our own initiative,” he said, 
“we looked in registries, checked 
schools, traced license plates and 
came up with an ungodly number 
of resident Soviets, including Sovi- 
et agents in factories mom toting 
Romanian exports to the Soviet 
Union. - . 

“This should have been an indi- 
cation that Soviet-Romairian coop-

viously repealed and a sign that 
Romania isa more refiaMe Warsaw

LUXEMBOURG— 1 
Paul FI was welcomed by 
bourg’s head of state on Wednes- 
day as a “tireless pilgrim of peace” 
when the pope arrival in the coun- 
try after a turbulent four-day stay 
in the Netherlands. 

In a speech to greet John Paul at 
Find el airport, Grand Duke Jean 
also described the pope as the voice 
of conscience in a troubled world. 

John Paul shook hands 
the small crowd that bad gat 
at the airport before traveling to 
tbe cathedral of Our Lady of Lux- 
embourg. 

At a service attended by the side, 
handicapped and aged, the pope 
recalled Luxembourg's tradition as 
a bastion of the Roman Catholic 
frith. Faced with sickness, war, 
death, destruction and famine, 
Christians needed to trust in God 
as never before, he told his listen- 
ers. 

“Are not the riders erf the apoca- 
lypse still abroad, with ever new 
names?” he said. “If we no longer 
have the plague today, there are 
still all too many other sicknesses 
and scourg es that befall human- 
ity” 

Speaking in Ger man, one of 
three official languages of the 
grand duchy, the pope urged Catb- 
oticsiD Luxembourg to remain true 
to the Blessed Virgin Mary, their 
patron for more man three centu- 
ries. 

The pope’s two-day visit to Lux- 
embourg was expected to give him 
a brief respite after the protests and 
criticism he witnessed in the Neth- 
erlands. 

In the first official reaction to the 
papal visit by die Dutch episcopal 
authorities Tuesday night. Hans 
van Munster, general-secretaiy of 
the national conference of bishops 
said in Utrecht that John Paul had 
pointed to defects without suggest- 
ing remedies. 

The pope is to travel Thursday 
night to Belgium, where police 
leave has been canceled following a 
wave erf bomb scares and other 
threats to security, on the final 
stage of his tour of the Benelux 
countries.

MADRID — Spanish officials 
have acknowledged that a govern- 
ment intelligence agency has infil- 
trated opposition political parties. 

Deputy Prime Minister Alfonso 
Guerra said Tuesday that the gov- 
ernment would conduct a thorough 
investigation of the spying. 

The political espionage, first re- 
ported Sunday in El Pais, a leading 
daily newspaper, has angered op- 
position parties. The conservative 
opposition, the Popular Alliance, 
filed a lawsuit Tuesday demanding 
a court investigation. The group 
said that some of its confidential 
papers were taken. 

Interior Ministry officials in tbe 
Socialist government of Prime 
Minister Felipe Gonzilez sard that 
they had moved to curtail the polit- 
ical spying since they uncovered it 
in 1983. But tbe officials said that 
some of the espionage continues. 

Mr. Gonzilez, who is attending a 
disarmament conference in Swe- 
den, has made no comment on tbe 
disclosures. 

Alberto Elias, head of the intelli- 
gence agency, the Interior Brigade, 
said that the agency has conceo-

Michigan Inyentor’s Device Helps Eyes Speak for Paralyzed 


By Jane Leavy 

Washington Past Service 

E AST LANSING, Michigan — 
Her name is Blanche. She lies 
in bed, as sbe has once the fall of 
1978. She waits for her husband 
who has nft come in two years, for 
her children who sometimes visit 
on holidays, for someone to change 
the television channel 
Today she waits for Martin 
King, the inventor of a computer- 
ized eye-monitoring system that 
gives voice to people who have no 
other way to speak. 

Mr. Kmg lives a life of chips and 
diodes, input and output, modems 
and programs. He is e xhilara ted by 
high-speed CMOS integrated cir- 
cuits, enthralled by EPROMs. He 
is (he new American' hero: the cora- 
puter-nerd-cum-inventor. 

“Invention is not bow to do 
something but the perception of 
need,” be said. Blanche’s need is 
dear. Six and a half years ago sbe 
entered a hospital Tor minor back 
surgery and left a quadriplegic. She 
can feel but she cannot move, ex- 
cept to nod. She can snwie but can- 
not tell you why. 


Her main communication aid is 


a 4-by-6-inch (10- by- 15-centime- 


ter) card crayoned in primary col- 
rith the' letters of the alphabet 


ors. with the 

aligned under the numerals 1 
through 5. Mr. King reads the num- 
bers and letters aloud. Blanche 
nods when he reaches the right one. 

“One, two, three, four, five," he 
says. “One, two. three, four, five" 
Plflimhe nods at a four, then an L 


then a T and an H, until slowly. 

jld 


inexorably, sbe says, “I think of old 
men being inventors.” 

Mr. King, who is 35, kneels by 
her side, holding her hand He is 
tall about 6 foot 4. Kneeling, be 
can look into her eyes, which is not 
so much a nicety as . a necessity. 
Blanche says people who know her 
can read her eyes. Mr. King’s de- 
vice, the Eyescan Communicator, 
can read her eyes and translate 
their position into written speech. 

Blanche has been testing the de- 
vice for Mr. King since December. 
The first time they used it. she 
broke her glasses. Today they will 
buy new rates. 

' Will Mr. King's machine make a 


sig nificant difference in Blanche’s 
“Yes,” said Blanche, who agreed 

to be Interviewed as long as she was 

not further identified “I like to run 
my mouth all the time.” 

Mr. King sighed “You're going 
to tins funny, aren’t you?" he 

said 

The question was posed ag a i n: 
Will it make a significant differ- 
ence in her life? 

She looked at him, but his head 
was buried in his hands. 

“The bottom line is, *Who gives a 
Hamn while rm lying here? " Mr. 
King said “Blanche won’t tell you 
that. So I will Isn't that so, 
Blanche?” 

She nodded vehemently and 

“One. two, three, four, five,” Mr. 
King said “One, two, three, four, 
five." , 

“Let's go get the glasses, 
Blanche said 

Mary Brady, assistive-device 
specialist at Pennsylvania Special 
Education Resource Center, calls 
Mr. King “typical of the crazy- 
inventor type.

NE night three years 
read a novel about the 
of a Mafia family. “He had a stroke 
and the only thing be could do is 
move his eyes.” Mr. King said. “1 
bis is really stupid. I 
help tins guy communicate 
with a computer that monitors 
where his eyes are looking while he 
is looking a a display of charac- 
ters,” 

He quit his job and founded 
Eyescan Inc, gambling that he 
could find a way to make his idea 
work- He put 550,000, all of his 
savings, into the company. An 
equal amount hiss been invested by 
his mother; his girlf riend, Ritchie 
Patterson; and her brother, Hugo, 
the president of Eyescan. 

Last fall be became an adjunct 
specialist at Michigan State Uni- 
versity, working with Dr. John En- 
lenberg, director of tire Artificial 
Language Laboratory. He works 
16 to 20 bouts a day. Some nights 
he never leaves tire office. Some- 
times be struggles with depression. 

“It’s my life," be said. *Tm 100 
percent into iL This is not at all like 
work to me. It's tqyiand in a certain 
sense. Going home to sleep is actu- 
ally a distraction.” 

For Blanche, Eyescan means a 
visitor, a touch of the hand. “What 
she doesn’t realize is how the ma- 
chine will put her in contact with 
people,” Mr. King said. “She hasn't 
seen that yet.” 

The device — if it works — will 
allow her to make phone calls and 
receive mail, to shop, perhaps to 
hold a job. Mr. King hopes she will 
be able to do these tilings by Sep- 


tember, which is when he expects to 
market He 


have Eyescan on the 
hopes to sell it for less than S2LD00. 
one-fourth tire price of the Eye- 
typer, the only other comparable 
device available. 

Companies in Australia, the 
Netherlands and Canada, as well as 
the United States, are working on 
eyc-moniioring systems. Dr. Euten- 
berg has estimated that a milli on 
people worldwide could use a de- 
vice like Eyescan. Mr. King said 
there were 20,000 to 50,000 people 
in the United States for whom eye 
communication would be the only 
appropriate technology. 

“The population with that par- 
ticular disability is increasing enor- 
mously, " says Virginia Stern of the 
American Association for tire Ad- 


vancement of Science, because 
stroke patients, disabled newborns 
and others with cerebral palsy and 
Lou Gehrig's disease are all living 
longer. 

The Eyetyper, which has been on 
(he market since December, is a 
stationary device that requires the 
use - to sit motionless in front of it. 
But Made Friedman, who devd- 
c^>ed the Eyeiyper for Sen tknr Sys- 
tems Technology Inc. with students 
from Cariregie-Melkm University, 
said the company would market a 
head-mounted device in the fall. 

The Eyescan prototype is a pair 
aS black-framed glasses, the right 
lens fixed with a cyBndncal donee 
about the size and shape of a rail 
shaker. The eye sees a multicolored 
display co mpos ed of seven hexa- 
gons, the lotos of tire alphabet 
divided among them and grouped 
around centered dots. In order to 
produce an A, the eye fixes on the 
tetter, which is blue, and then on 
the hexagon with the blue dot An 
A appears an the screen. 

Although it is slower than a di- 
rect gaze mechanism, which re- 
quires the eye to fix an only one 
character, it is also more reliable. 
Mr. King expects users to be able to 
produce at least 50 characters a 
annate. 

Research in the area is not new. 
"The milit a ry hre hwwi inra»as i rg jy 
interested in hand-free control, us- 
ing the eye and the head to operate 
devices m the environment of the 
cockpit," said Maty Brady at the 
Pennsylvania research center. She 
supervised a Defense Department 
project involving the development 
of an electromagnetic head-track- 
ing device for aircraft pilots. 

“At the same time, rehabilitation 
researches have been interested in 
eye control" she said, “because 
with most disabled people it's the 
Iasi site of bodily controL When 
everything else goes, what they 
have left is control of the eye." 

The essence of the Invention is 
a sensor rin g within the cylinder, 
composed of six infrared light- 
emitting diodes, “which are solid- 
state tight sources tike tiny light 
bulbs, and six photo-transistors 
that have the ability to sense the 
light being reflected back from the 
eye," Mr. King said. “We turn on 
one of those light bulbs at a time 
and we look at the reflected intensi- 


ty at various positions around that 
nng. You can imagine if I shine a 
flashlight in your eye and watch 
how much light is reflected back, 
that the light will vary depending 
ou where you are looking from. 
This change is what we use to mea- 
sure eye position. The computer 
processes the reflection. 

. “The novdty of the technique is 
that the sensing mechanism is very 
simple — there is no hardware, no 
optics, no lenses. The complexity 
resides in the software. We let the 

microprocessor do the w rat." 

The device can function as an 
independent communication aid or 
can be plugged into a personal 
computer equipped to perform 
such tasks as dialing the phone. 

Mr. King was working at the 
Cornell High. Energy Synchrotron 
Source laboratory when he read the 
book about the Mafia don. His 
former bass there. Professor Boris 
Baucrman, said; “I think Martin is 
as dose to a genius as I’ve ever 
come across. Also, he’s crazy. He 
really is. His mind bubbles more 
than he can handle.”

XT WAS Eyescan that enabled 
Michael Ryan, a 6-year-old boy 
who became a spastic quadriplegic 
because of medical malpractice, to 
convince insurance „ companies 
that as Mr. King put it, “he was 
capable of an intact intelligence 
ami thus capable of using a com- 
munication device and that he 
needed more money than just life 
support, he needed money to sup- 
port a technology to give him an 
education." 

The insurance companies agreed 
to a settlement that guarantees Mi- 
chael a minimum of 526 millinn 
over the course of his life 

Questions about the device re- 
main. “The questions I have are the 
visual fatigue, the difficulty cali- 
brating and the cosmetic problem 
of having a big glob hanging in 
front of your eye," Mary Brady 
saRL 

Eventually, Mr. King said, tbe 
user should be able to memorize 
the display ami remove the cylinder 
from the glasses, leaving only the 
sensor ring. Patterson made a large 
plexiglass display for Blanche so 
she could bran to memorize the 
positions of the letters. 


IN BRIEF 


Fossilized Leech Found in Wisconsin 


. WASHINGTON (NYT) — Paleontologists have reported finding a 
fossil bed in Wisconsin that contains the remains of what appears to be 
the oldest known leech, among many other soft-bodied creatures — 
animals that are not usually preserved as rock fossils. 

. In thejoomal Science. Donald K_ Mikulic of the Illinois State Geologi- 
cal Surrey and colleagues from other institutions said the remains 
resulted from a “unique dqpqsitional environment” that preserved the 
fossils during the Silurian period about 400 milli on years ago. 

The investigators believe tbe leech was probably predatory rather than 
parasitic. Another find in tbe fossil bed was a hitherto unknown crusta- 
cean with compound eyes, tike those of a fly, adjacent to pincers that may 
have been used to seize prey.

they’re getting propagated ones,"' 
said Linda McMahan, a botanist 
with the World Wildlife Fond-UA 
in Washington. 

Most of the bulbs sold try mail- 
order houses and flower shops are 
propagated from seeds. But mil- 
lions of bulbs are dug up from 
mountain fields, mainly in Turkey, 
and trucked to tbe Netherlands and 
other European countries for resale 
in Europe or the United States. 

Several of the wild species being 
traded are disappearing and a few 
face extinction, botanists say. 

The greatest attention has been 
focused on cyclamens — actually 
tubers but commonly referred to as 
bulbs. Half the known pedes erf 
cyclamen are in danger in their wild 
habitats, Ms. McMahan said. 

Bulbs of same popular species of 
snowdrop, inducting Gamahus el- 
wesii, have been gathered in bulk 
from natural fields. Some spedes of 
anemone and a few rare varieties of 
tulip and narcissus from the wild 
hare turned up.

TUCSON, Arizona (AP) — Arches and loops of huninous gas that rise 
far above the sun's surface after a major solar flare may represent a kind 
of healing of the sun’s magnetic field, tbe Solar Physics Division of the 
American Astronomical Society has been told. 

Dr. R. N. Smart: of the National Optical Astronomy Observatories 
said tbe loops marked a recovery from a disruption in the magnetic field 
caused by the flare: He said tbe loops could define a healing process that 
occurs over many hours, during which strands of the magnetic field 
reconnect gradually. The loops then fade and disappear after the magnet- 
ic fidd has reformed, be said. 

Dr. Smartt's observations were based on photographs of a series of 
coronal loops associated with solar flares in 1980, obtained through.a 
coronagraph at Sacramento Peak Observatory in New Mexico. 


- Human Link to Animal Virus Found 


WASHINGTON (NYT) — Immunologists in West Germany, working 
with biologists and psychiatrists at tbe University of Pennsylvania, hare 
found evidence that certain psychiatric disorders might be related to a 
rare virus disease of sheep and horses. 

The affEction, Brona disease, causes spasms, paralysis and either 
excitability or apathy in affected livestock in Germany and Switzerland. 
Brain tissue from infected animals and injected into healthy chickens, 
chimpanzees, tree shrews and other spedes had been known to cause 
behavioral abnormalities and reduction in cognitive ability. Now, accord- 
ing to a report in the journal Science, researchers suspect a human link. 

The sdentists took serum samples from 979 psychiatric patients in 
West Germany and the United States and tested them for the kind of 
antibodies that would indicate (hey had been exposed at some time to the 
Brona virus. The screening turned up 16 patients with positive Brona 
antibody reactions, all of whom also had depression, mostly rtf a cyclic 
nature.

T HE inner planets of the solar 
system appear to hare been 
formed in a planetary Armagpddon 
in which contenders for ultimate 
survival, some of them three tunes 
larger than Mars, repeatedly collid- 
ed with one another until only one 
survived in each of the present 
planetary orbits, according to a 
newly published analysis. 

Dr. George W. Wetherill believes 
the planets had “lots of brothers 
and sisters,” not much smaller than 
those of today, which collided to 
form “trial" planets. “The four we 
see today," be said, referring to 
Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, 
“are the survivors." 

One of the final collisions, he 
said, probably increased the spin of 
Eaith sufficiently to throw off ma- 
terial that then consolidated to 
form the moon. 

Dr. Wetberin, director of the de- 
partment of terrestrial magnetism 
at the Carnegie Institution of 
Washington, published his findings 
in the journal Science. His hypoth- 
esis is derived from a computer 
simulation of what probably hap- 
pened after the solar system began 
to take shape from a rotating cloud 
of dust and gas about 43 billion 
years ago. 

The analysis took into consider- 
ation various factors affecting the 
formation process once about- 500 
bodies, each one-third- the- size of 
the moon, had formal in the region 
around the sun now occupied by 
Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. 

Among those factors were the 
gravitational fields around each 
object, tbe frequency of near-hits 
that would throw the objects into 
eccentric orbits, and the ooUisons 
that might have canceled tbe eccen- 
tricity. K 

Collisions would have generated 
enough heal within Earth to melt 
most, if not all, of its interior. Such 
melting would have occurred 
throughout the bombardment, al- 
lowing heavy material to rink and 
form Earth’s metallic core. 

The calculations assumed that 
not enough gas was present to af- 
fect motions of tbe ejects as they 
sped past one another. The inner 
solar system, many sdentists be- 
lieve, was swept clear of gas by a 
violent “wind” from the sun. 

Furthermore, each collision 
would hare driven off most of any 
planetary atmosphere that had be- 
gun to accumulate. Since the im- 
pact histories of Earth and Venus 
woe different, this could account 
for the differences in their atmo- 
spheric abundances erf inert gases 
such as argon. 

Initially, material destined to 
form the planets was so uniformly 
spread around the sun that its mo- 



tions were- „ 

collisions much like those i 
cules in a hot gas. By the tiBtelhis

the bodies were “quite smaU," Dr. 
Wetherill said — about 30 miles in 
diameter. 

It may be, he added,*thal no 
planet formed in the asteroid beta, 
beyond the orbit of Man but inside 
Jupiter’s orbit, because the im- . 
raense gravitational pull of Jupiter 
threw much of the material there

Women Smokers 
Victims of Disease^ 


Linked to Cancer 


United Pita InlcrmlKfnaJ 


L OS ANGELES — Women who 
* started smokmgriimng World 
War II are being treated in increas- 
ing numben for a chronic lung dis- 
ease that has now been Baked to 
cancer, researchers say. : - 
Dr, Dorothy Sexton of the Yale 
University School of Nursing said 
Tuesday at the annual American 
Lung Association meeting that a 
study of 112 women compared 
those with chro nic obstructive pul- 
monary disease— apo^x of disor- 
ders usually characterized by 
“smoker’s cough” — to healthy 
women who did not smoke. • 

Tbe results showed that women 
with tbe disease were more restrict- 
ed in activity, suffered more from 
loneliness and depression and felt * 
ill more often, she said. P 

Emphysema and chronic bron- 
chitis are the most frequently diag- 
nosed forms of the- disease, the 
most common chronic lung disease 
in the United States. Although it is 
most often caused by smoking, re- 
search also shows it can develop 
after long exposure to environmen- 
tal and occupational pqflutanls. 

A report at (be meeting by doc- 
tors from the Mayo Clinic in Roch- 
ester, Minnesota, said the disease 
was also linked to lung cancer.

dock time is 
frequency of the cesi- 
um atom. Solar time is based on the 
Earth's rate of rotation. The two 
are not always the same. . . 

Tbe official time represents the 
average of many cesium-beam 
atomic docks. The system, says the 
naval observatory, is accurate lo 
within a billionth of a second per 
day — “a time-measurement pred- 
aon equivalent to measuring the 
distance to tbe sun to within less 
than oae-tenlh erf an inch." 

But humans, whose timekeeping s 
predates atomic docks, like to & 
watch tbe sun and tbe stars to set 


their docks. When a given heavenly 
body is at tbe same pace tomorrow 


as it was today, that's one revolu- 
tion, one day. And Earth cannot be 
counted on like cesium atoms. 
Sometimes it speeds up. Mostly it 
slowsdown. 

The rotation is uniform only to 
within one-thousandth of a second 
per day. In the observatory's analo- 
that is equivalent to measuring 
tne sun's distance to within about a 
mile or 1.6 kilometers. 

To get the atomic and solar time 
standards together, a “leap second" 
is slipped in evenr so often. It was 
done twice in 1972 and has been’ 
done once every year since except 
for 1980 and 1984.. The extra see*

where entire tribes withdrew their

very soon led to the establishment 
of the sheikhdom of Dubai under 
the descendants of Makimn bin

Tribal politics and the personal 
standing of leading sheikhs have 
been eclipsed by a new political 
dimension. 


The London-based Iraq Petro- 
leum Co., an imernatinnal anman r- 
t mm obtained concessions in all 
the then Trucial States from 1938 
onwards. As soon as h began ex- 
ploring for ofl in 1946 the defiuea- 
-tionof the boundaries of the con- 
cessions became all impohant. 
Henceforth, politics was no longer 
only a matter of the loyalty of tribal 
people, but of possession of square 
miles rtf desert with the potential of 
off-bearing rock beneath. 

OQ was first found in commer- 
ce] quantities in Abu Dhabi terri- 
tory m I960, and in dne course that 
state became one of the foremost 
exporters of off and gas in the 
world. 

Today, after two dec a d es of oil- 


exportnig, (he population of Abu 


has grown from 47,000 in 
1968 to some 520^000 inhabitants, 
of many nationalities in two highly 
urbanized centers. 


Since the state of Abu Dhabi is 
host to the U-AJL’s capital of the 
same name, the ever-present ques- 
tion is: Where does the emirate end 
and the federal state begin? The 
simplified answer is that ji begins 
at the purse strings. Haring pro- 
moted with singleminded dedica- 
tion the formation of the federal 
state and having been its twice re- 
elected only president, the Ruler of 
Abu Dhabi bved up to expectation. 
In the initial years he committed 
unKantcd funds from Abu Dhabi 
for developing and naming the en- 
tire federation 

This generosity, vyfnch stands in 
the tradition rtf a successful tribal 
sheikh, was linked lo one condi- 
tion: to progressively solidify the 
newty created federation. In a mul- 
titude of aspects this has certainly 
been successful Backed by Abu 
Dhabi's funds and an army of bu- 
reaucrats, most federal ministries 
extended their operations into the

ABU DHABI — The United 
Arab Emirates is a rich country by 
any standards, despite the cries of 
economic hardship from individual 
emirates. Its dependence on ofl and' 
gas revenues, however, has left the 
economy vulnerable to the fluctua- 
tions of world energy prices. Oil 
revenues have been halved over the 
last three yean and may fall fur- 
ther. 

The effect is most strongly felt by 
the smaller, poorer emirates, whose 
individual economies have been fi- 
nanced principally by federal 
(pending augmented by the per- 
sonal generosity of Sheikh Zayed 
bin Sultan al-Nahayan, the 
UAE’s president. 

Today, with the reduction in fed- 
eral resources, especially develop- 
ment spending, which was down 
last year by around 27 percent on 
t983's figure, the institutional 
weaknesses of the federation and 
die old rivalries among its members 
have resurfaced. 

The federal budget should run 
from January to Deoember but for 
the last two years it has only been 
approved in midsummer, and 1985 
is Hedy to be the same, both in the 
timing and in the amwmtu- In 1984, 
expenditure was budgeted at 17.2 
billion dirhams (54.69 billion) and 
income was around 12B bOHon dir- 
hams; the wrii^ifeH 4.4-bflfion (fir- 
ham deficit was funded by Abu 
Dhabi Dubai. Actual expendi- 
ture is generally lower than esti- 
mated. 

All the ofl-produdng emirates 
are supposed to contribute half of 
their cu revenue to the budget, but 
in practice, only Abu Dhabi and 
Dubai do sa Abu Dhabi contrib- 
utes around 80 percent of the total, 
half its oil revenue of 34.7 bflfion 
dirhams, plus its share of the defi- 
cit. Dubai's oil revenue, is a some- 
what mysterious figure because it 
sells its ofl independently but the 
total is around 13.1 bflfion dir- 
hams. 

Dubai usually wi thholds some of 


its contribution to federal spend- 
ing. When Abu Dhabi complains, 
Dubai argues that Abu Dhabi gams 
most from federal spending, and it 
also disputes federal military pur- 
chases made by Abu Dhabi. De- 
fense absorbs about half of federal 
budget allocations but the emirates 
spend without much consultation 
among one another. In Abu Dha- 
bUs case, such spending, includes 18 
Mirages bought from France, the 
building of special shelters for the 
aircraft and three military schools. 


Ike institutional 

weaknesses of the 

% 

federation and the 
old rivalries among 
its members have 
resurfaced. 


Hie Mirage purchase was mainly 
covered by an ofl barter arrange- 
ment Abu Dhabi also considers 
that Sharjah, whose condensate 
production is now at 60,000 bands 
a day, should contribute to the 


budget. Shariah replies that this 
" i only if there were 


would be possible < 
more signs of accountability from 
ministries in Abu Dhabi. 

Consensus is not always easy in 
the UAE, and the frequent ab- 
sences abroad of Sheikh Zayed and 
the prolonged illness of Sheikh 
Mai turn bin Rashid of Dubai ac- 
centuate the impression of a rud- 
derless economy. 

Both in the Federal National 
Counril and in the chambers of 
commerce, local merchants are 
pressing the authorities for a 


prompter budget and, above all, 
[ of fede 


the revival of federal development 
spending. There has also been criti- 
cism of the lack erf an overall devel- 
opment plan. This stems partly 
from the fact that outride the fields- 


of health and education, few feder- 
al ministries have effective writ. 

Federal action, not only In bud- 
getary matters, is generally the re- 
sult not of ministerial action but of 
meetings among three or four offi- 
cials from Dubai and Abu Dhabi 
Council members have asked to see 
u report by an economic committee 
set up by the president lost autumn, 
in the hopes that this will lead to 
some kind of activity by the au- 
thorities. 

Abu Dhabi's economy often 
seems in a worse plight than Du- 
bai's because of its greater depen- 
dence on ofl and gas and the vaga- 
ries of the worid market. Much of 
its administrative structure is still 
finding its feet; it is not easy for so 
young an economy to deal with a 
31-percent fall in revenue since 
1980, when many projects that 
seem extravagant in today's terms 
were conceived. 

Attempts to diversify from hy- 
drocarbons have been unsuccess- 
ful but there are oil reserves to 
cover 50 years of production at 
current rates and tnis output re- 
leases a steady flow of dir hams into 
the local market through oil-servic- 
ing business. 

Last year, the Abu Dhabi gov- 
ernment borrowed 1.5 billion dir- 
hams from the National Bank of 
Abu Dhatn to cover its deficit. The 
chair man of the bank and of the 
Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, 
Mohammed Habroush, recently 
said that such borrowing would 
probably be needed for another 
two years before the winding down 
of projects leads to a balanced bud-

Moreover, Dubai's reputation as 
an enirepat has made it an obvious 
choice as the focal point for sea and 
air activities, which generally in- 
volve goods being shipped from the 
Indian subcontinent and the Far 


points to be included in its net 
work. 

At the same iim*» the carrier has 
extended its network westward to 
include Sana'a, North Yemen, and 
Khartoum, Sudan, and it j$ looking 
at adding Nairobi and Mogadishu, 
Somalia, so opening up further 
freight transhipment possibilities 
via the Guff, with Dubai and Bah- 
rain the obvious choices for such 
activities. 

Other airlines, too, are building 
up their Dubai transshipment busi- 
ness as a means of general! 
much-needed freight traffic out of 
the Gulf. British Airways has been 
looking to develop more sea-air 
and all-air transshipment fndi 
business through Dubai and otl 
Gulf centers. 

“For transshipment in the Gulf 
there really is nowhere to compare 
with Dubai; here you have a very 
flexible pint managemen t SO you 
turn to expand its Far East opera- can, for instance. undertake res- 
tions. At the moment the carrier towing operations in the port for

on Singapore and Seoul as future one Dubai-bared executive said. 


Guff Air leads in tins 
mani The wilting although 
quartered in ’Ruhram , has concen- 
trated its sea-air operations on 
Dubai. la addition to sea-air busi- 
ness, it is also developing all-air 
traffic in a similar way.

could result from Gulf Air’s mien-

year, compand with 205 jOOG bar- 
ids in 1982, and there has been 
some hard bargaining for conces- 
sions bn payment teems. ADNOCs 
officials are holding their own, bnf 
most recently the Japanese suggest- 
ed they should pay in yen rather 
than in dollars. . 

There have been several offshore 
gas finds over the last year and 
development of the Khuu field is 
going ahead to reinject 250 rntDion 
cnWc feet a day into die Uweinat 
formation. Uweinat cap gas is now 
providing at least half the needs of 
the voracious Abu Dhabi Gas Liq- 
uefaction Cou, which was in danger 
of failing its commitments because 
of erode production cuts. 

Aba Dhabi Gas raised produc- 
tion in 1984 over 1 983 (when it was 
affected by technical problems) as 
a result of this additional supply. 
But it, too, has had to bargain with 
Japanese customers (Tokyo Elec- 
tric exclusively for its LNG and 
others, through «pnty holders BP 
and Con mag nie Fatn$aue de Pfc- 
trofe, for ns LPG) because of the 
link bewteen,the price of crude and 
the price of gas. 


The most interesting develop- 
ment in the last few years in the 
Fjrtiratwi tme been the gas conden- 
sate discoveries in other parts of 
the country — a geological break- 
through uang rapidly evolving seis- 
mic techniques mat has attracted a 
host of fonagn oH companies of an 
sizes. 

The discoveries include Dubai’s 
Maigha field, a concession owned 
by Axco mad Bfitoil, which has 
been producing about 25,000 bar- 
rels a day of condensate since early 
last year and reinjecting the gas. 
Sharjah's Sajaa field now produces 
about 60,000 barrels a day of con- 
densate and is Haring 400 mini on 
cubic feet a day of gas, having sold 
only about 100 mfilion cubic feet a 
day fora remarkably high price to 
Emirates General Petroleum Co. 
for power generation in the north- 
ern emirates. 

There is also Ras al-Khaimah’s 
offshore Saleh field, now produc- 
ing about 13,000 barrels a day, flar- 
ing some of the gas and raping 
same onshore for cement kilns. In 
Abu Dhabi, Amoco is exploring a 


continuation of the Margham- Sa- 
jaa structure; its first wdl found 
noncommercial quantities of gas 
condensate and is now drilling a 
second. 

There is hide new downstream 
activity in the Emirates despite ru- 
mors. Bhwnah has gone ahead with 
its $300-mflHon LPG plant in part- 
nership with Amoco and the Japa- 
nese but the proposed fertilizer 


minsiter of petroleum, Mr. ai- 
Oteiba, has the unenviable task of 
combining the roles of chairing the 
OPEC production monitoring 
committee, heading the federal 
ministry and also Abu DhabTs De- 
partment of Petroleum. 

Dubai does not fed bound by the 
ministry, and Abu Dhabi 
therefore, had to bear the brunt of 
cuts in OPEC production quotas.

Oil observers criticize Sharfah’s 
flare but in preseat market condi- 
tions the government’s hesitancy is 
understandable. Agreement is re- 
ported to have been reached with 
Dubai for purchase of Sharjah gas 
for power generation; Dubai needs 
the gas, rod anything would be 

better than Shar jah flaring it But 
relations between Ihe two emirates 
are still clouded by their border 
dispute, which also affects delinea- 
tion of their respective dl fields. 

The uncertainty of federal au- 
thority as a whole is most dearly 
demonstrated in dl matters. Hie 


bands a day and the 
Dubai government refuses to be 
bound by OPEC decisions on the 
grounds that it produces less thro 
Abu Dhabi anyway. Condensate 
production is not included in 
OPEC's quotas.

NEW YORK — Places on the New York 
Stock Exchange were slightly lower lace 
Wednesday in active trading. 

The Dow Jones industrial average was off 
0.88 to 1J7241 an hour before the close. Ad- 
vances led riwrirnfts by a 4-3 ratio. Volume was 
about 88.5 million shares, up from 82.6 mfilian

Analysts said a prime-rale cut to 10 percent

had aided the market in gains earlier in the 
session. 

"The prime rate cut is good medicine for us 
and the market greeted it with open arms,” said 
Keith Hertefl of Drexd Burnham Lambert- 

Other analysts were more skeptical. 

The prime rate cut stirred a lot of activity 
but we might just be seeing another spurt on the 
upside,’' saidHUdegardZlagorskiof Prudential- 
Bache. 

A slowing economy, interest rates not yet low 
enough to trigger a recovery in mannfactaiing, 
low cash positions in institutional portfolios, 
and expectations for depressed second-quarter 
corporate profits will keep the market from 
breaking through the upper end of its trading 
range. Miss Zagorski said. 

**A discount rate cat might cause a blip in the 
averages but that’s partially in the market as 


wen,” she said. “The market will probably re- 
sume its drifting phase." 

Before the market opened the Federal Re- 
serve Board said that Uj. industrial production

Department said later . 

AT&T was near the top of the active list and 
higher at midday. 

Western Union and Federal National Meat- 
gage Association were also active and higher. ; 
" frank stocks moved higher. Citicorp, Chase 
Manhattan, Manufacturers Hanover, Chemical 
New York, Marine Midland and Bankers Trust 
were all up. 

IBM and Digital Equipment were up. Na-

General Motors and Chrysler were higher. 
Ford was off slightly. 

LTV Coro, was off. 

TWA and UAL Inc. were lower. 

Unocal was off slightly. The company said it

^ Men’s Long Skirts in Vogue 
si As Investors Torn Bearish 


6&S(£VE 



I By EDWARD ROHHBACH 

International Herald Tribute 

P ARIS — Men's skins are “all the rage in New York,” 
according to a newspaper item cited by Edward S. 
Hyman Jr. o£ Cyrus J. Lawrence Inc, called “Wall 
Street's favorite economist” He comments: “That has to 
be bearish for the stock market,” since a photo accompanying the 
article shows a sheepish, bespectacled man who is wearing a long 
skirt and is. about lo step pot into traffic 
Mr. Hyman’s whimsic al point, of coarse, is that the relation- 
ship between rising hpfnKn^ qn women's skirts pnd rising stock 
. prices has long been recognized — so men wearing long darts has 
r to be too ranch even for Wall ——————— 


punishment on 
Wall Street 


Street to bear. ‘ c . . ' 

while the fashion world ‘ ^woe investors are 

tiring of taking 

ness, Stan Weinstein, editor T nmiahmpjit on 
and publisher of the Profes- JL 
sional Tape Reader, evokes Wall Street, 
the traditional macho imy ■ 
in his latest commentary: 1 

“Like a prizefighter fei g nin g with his right hand and then 
jabbing with his left, this market is bobbing and weaving and 
totally confusing the street. More arid more investors are throw- 
ing in the towel and becoming bearish as the market whipsaws 
back and forth.” .. . 

But that is giving up too early, he believes, because the Dow- 
Jones Industrial Average is “overstating flic market’s weakness” 
and there is “sub-surface strengthening taking place.” * 


Y *ET Mr, Weinstein, who reties solely on technical analysis, 
is more sane of Wall Street’s favorable trend over the 
distance than he is about the next few rounds. For one 
thing, he does not like the way General Motars’s has been 
staggered lately. 

Has top gronps for investment are broadcasting, drugs, hospital 
companies, oil-rdaied concerns and restaurants. Sectors to avoid 
are al uminum stocks, autos, auto parts and semiconductors. 

Tins contention that investors are getting tired of ta kin g 
p unishm ent on Wall Street is reflected m the latest “decision- 
makers” poll conducted by Richard B. Hocy, economist at Drexd 
Bu rnham 

■ Between February of this year and April “optimism about the 
stock market declined abruptly,” he disclosed, according to 
responses bom 106 big institutional investors such as banks and 
pension funds. He calculates Ms Institutional Sentiment Stock 
Index by subtracting from the percentage of investment manag- 
ers expecting to be in a bull market in three months the percent- 
age a bear market • 

In February, the index readied the highest level of the 1984-85 
period at 4S.1 percent, as 5&1 percent of the those surveyed 

hd jgqwl thaf otw stock marfe-if wriuM in a hull marker fn three 
months, with only 1 1 percent expecting to be in a bear market by 
May. Bui two months later, optimism had waned as the index 
dropped 38_5 percentage points to 6.6 percent, the lowest level in 
the 1984-85 period 

Describing the index as a “useful intennediate-tenn contrary 
opinion indicator,” Mr. Hoey added, “Thus, we takethe erosion 
of the extreme optimism of February as an encouraging sign for 
the stock market.” 

The firm’s director of research. Burton M. Siegel, put it this 
way: “Consensus expectations have plummeted in recent weeks 
and. now they incorporate most cif the disappointing news. 
Positive surprises havehecome riiore hkriy . 

Noting that the key assumption behind Drexd Burnham’s 
market optimism is the sustainability of the economic cycle, Mr. 

continued: “The recession and growth recession senarios 
that are attracting great interest axe likely to recede as favorable 
economic data axe reported later tins spring and s ummer . The 
negative company earnings surprises and the adjustments in

Speakes 
Calls S&L 
Units Safe 

But Maryland 

Acts on Crisis 


Untied Press hammmti 

WASHINGTON — As steps 
were being taken to resolve the cri- 
sis among Maryland's savings and 
loan associations, Larry Speakes. 
the White House spokesman, said 
Wednesday that the UB. federal 
savings ami loan system “is safe 
and protected” 

Asked if there is any concern in 
the White Haase over the federal 
system in view of the Maryland 
savings and loan situation, Mr. 
Speakes replied: “The federal sys- 
tem is safe and protected. We re 
moni torin g the gjirrarirm at the 
Treasury. It has tv»*n at 

the White House, but these are 
state matters.” 

Both Ohio and Maryland have 
undergooe problems with savings 
and loans associations. The gover- 
nor of Maryland, Harry Hughes, 
took control Tuesday of die state’s 
102 savings and lorn associations 
that do not have federal insurance 
md miio*? fie state legislature into 
emergency session Friday to con- 
sider a new insurance plan u> pro- 
tect investors. 

A run fay nervous depositors on 
• Maryland’s privately insured sav- 
ings and louts eased Wednesday, 
but measures taken to save the 
shaky thrifts disrupted business ac- 
tivity in the stale. 

Mr. Hughes, who dedared a 
state of emergency Tuesday, met 
with F ederal Reserve nffiriak and 
a team of attorneys to search for 
solutions to new problems created 
by his iWkinn an Tuesday to limit 
withdrawals by depositors to 
S1.000 a mooth. 

JEjner Johnson, the governor’s 
chief of staff, said the state would 
set up a hotline to answer questions 
from nervous readmits — some 
trying to dose deals on new houses 
or pay large bills or payrolls. 

But Mr. Johnson said it was un- 
likely Mr. Hughes would make ex- 
ceptions to the withdrawal limit, 
imposed to stop the drain on assets 
at the state-chartered saving; and 
loans. 

“There are no plans to modify 
that at the moment,” Mr. Johnson 
said. “We have to^ make a determi- 
nation what kind ofhqnklitY is out 
there. We want to staunch the flow 
of withdrawals.” 


Nigeria’s Foray Into QUrBartermg 


Its Swaps Have Depressed 
World Prices, Traders Say 

By Bob Hagenr 

Immotianai Henud Trmune 

LONDON — A spate of oQ-bartering by Nige- 
ria is hetpmg to depress petroleum prices, traders 
say, and more such sales stem the works. 

Barter — or countertrade; as the more complex 
arrangements arc called — in recent years has 
become a major selling method for many members 
of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Coun- 
tries, notably Iran, Algeria, Libya and Saudi Ara- 
bia. Bat Nigeria, one of OPEC's biggest producers, 
has become a big user of countertrade only in 
recent months. 

Already, it has readied agreements involving SI 
billion worth of spare parts and other goods from 


Dornier Holder 
Ends Resistance 
To Daimler Pact 



A 


France, and S200 miHjon worth of machinery, sled 
and other building materials from Austria’s state- 
owned Voest-AIptne AG. 

Countertrade allows oil producers to give well- 
disguised discounts from oftirawl OPEC prices. 
Though the producers generally deny this motive, 
“You don’t undertake a barter deal if you can sell 
crude at official prices,” said Mehdi Varzi, an oQ 
analyst at the London stockbrofcerage of Grieve- 
son. Grant & Co. 

Tbe ofl market in genoal has been weak recent- 
ly, and it is difficult to isolate one factor from 
another. But traders note that Nigerian crude 
prices have fallen mere steeply than some other 
widely traded crudes. 

Petroleum Argus, a trade newsletter, reports 
that Nigeria's Bonny light crude is quoted on the 
spot, or noncon tract, market at around $26.80 a 
band. That is down about $1 JO from .two months 
ago and compares with the official price of $28.65 
a band. Forcados, a lower-grade Nigerian erode, 
was quoted Wednesday at around $26.70 a barrel, 
down SI .50 from two months ago. Nigeria’s Bonny 
medium has slumped $1.80. 

Britain’s Brent mend and West Texas interme- 
diate, a widely traded UJ3. crude, are down less 
than $1 from their mid-March levds. 

Nigeria's oil minister, Tam David-West, said in 


Tam David-West 

a telephone interview from Lagos that his country 
was trying to structure its countertrade in a way 
that would avoid undermining the market The 
minister added that he was analyzing bow the new 
practice was affecting spot prices. 

“I owe nobody any apologies for doing counter- 
trade — provided we do not rock the boat,” Mr. 
David-West said. 

In theory, countertrade need not rock the boat 
any more ih«n rach sales do. In practice, however, 
it often does. 

For one thmg , countertrade allows producers to 
pump more crude than they would if they retied 
solely cm cash sales. Oil executives estimate that 
Nigeria in recent months has been producing 
about 1.7 milli on bands a day, well over of its 
OPEC quota, which the Nigerians define as 1.45 

million 

Mr. David-West declined to comment on such 
estimates, but be said Nigeria next week would be 
hosting KMG Kfynveld Kraaymboff & Co., a 
Dutch accounting firm recently hired by OPEC to 
monitor members’ production. “Our doors are

BigU.S. Bank Lowers Prime to 10% 


Compiled br Our Staff from Dispatcher 

NEW YORK — Bankers -Dust, 
the eighth largest U.S. bank, cut its 
prime lending rate Wednesday by a 
half percentage paint, to 10 per- 
cent, the lowest level for the bench- 
mark rate in more than 6% years. 

Although a few small banks low- 
ered thar prime rate last month, to 
1054 percent, the major ILSL banks 
have posted a 103^>ercent prime 
since mid-January. No other major 
bank followed Bankers Trust's lead 
an Wednesday. 

The reduction follows a sharp 
decline in money-market rates in 
tire past week, partly as a result of 
speculation that the Federal Re- 
serve will farther relax its grip on 


credit to stimulate the stuttering 
U.S. economy, analysts smd. 

The deposit rate for 90-day cer- 
tificates of deposit, adjusted for de- 
posit mgiranrfi and reserve re- 
quirements. was around 8.40 
percent Wednesday, or more than 
200 baas points below the 103- 
percent p ri me rate; A basis point is 
one hundredth of a percentage 
point. 

Some analysts said tow financing 
costs would have justified a cut in 
the prime rale much earlier. 

“On balance this comes as no big 
surprise," said William Sullivan erf 
Dean Witter Reynolds Inc. “Banks 
have dragged their heels, and a re- 


duction in the rate was long over- 
due,” he said. 

The prime rate is the benchmark 
against which banks measure rates 
on other short-term loans to small- 
and medium-size businesses. Large 
businesses are often able to borrow 
at rates below the prime rate, while 
many smaller box t owers frequently 
must pay more. 

The prime has been falling since 
Sept. 27, when it was cut to 12.75 
percent from the 13-pocent level 
that had prevailed for three 
months. The last time the prime 
was cut was Jan. 15, when it was 
reduced by a quarter percentage 
point, to the anient 103 percent

By Watreo Oder 

International Herald TrSaaie 

FRANKFURT — A battle for 
control erf Dornier GmbH ended 
Tuesday when Claudius Dormer, 
the senior shareholder of the fam- 
ily-owned concern, agreed to a plan 
to sell a 68-percent stake in the 
oonmany to Daimler-Benz AG. 

Under the plan, Mr. Dormer 
wonkl retain a 20-percem stake in 
Dornier, West Germany’s second- 
largest aerospace group with 1984 
sales of about 1.6 billion Deutsche 
marks (about $520 million). The 

era! Cartel OfljctTwfaerc no major 
objections are foreseen. 

Tbe takeover, if approved, would 
make Daimler one at West Germa- 
ny’s leading military contractors. 
The automaker earlier this year ac- 
quired full control of MTU GmbH, 
a major Uialrw of engines for nrfli- 
taiy aircraft with 1984 sales of 22 
billion DM. Abont half of Dor- 
mer’s sales are imlitary-rdated, a 
Dornier spokesman said. 

Mr. Dornier, the only one of six 

objected to the Daimler Utleover 
plan announced April 23, said 
Wednesday in a telephone inter- 
view that he frit he could not go 
against the^ wishes of the company s 
work force and the government in 
his effort to Node Daimler's bid. 

Under tana of the company 
founder’s will, Mr. Dormer holds 
de facto veto power over the sale of 
stock to outsiders. 

Mr. Dornier, whose stake would 
rise from a current 12J5 percent 
under terms of the agreement with 
Daimler, had the legal option of 
baying shares of the other family 
monbers before those shares could 
be offered to outriders. He had 
hdd. out for a 25-percent stake, 
which under German law would 
have granted him veto power over 
manag ement decisions. 

On the eve of Daiml er’s April 
announcement, a large majority of 
Dormer’s 9,000 employees had vot- 
ed in favor of Daiml er’s acquisition 
proposal, which also was strongly 
endorsed by- the regional govern- 
ment of Baden- Wuerttemberg 
where the two companies are locat- 
ed. Under the agreement, the state 
government would become a mi- 
nority shareholder, taking a 4-per- 
cent stake, while the remaining 8 
percent would be hdd by Claudius’ 
brother. Savins. 


Union members at Dornier had 
become increasingly agitated over 
Mr. Dormer’s resistance to the* 
Daimler {dan and were understood 
to be set oo calling a strike if the 
future ownership a the company 
were not settled prooptiy. 

Justus Dormer, Gandhis’ step- 
brother and a rival for conuoHhog 
influence within the comp an y, said 
in an interview that other family 
shareholders had repeatedly 
warned the elder Dornier in recent 
weeks that they “did sot want to 
see the dock turned back” on 
Daimler’s plan. He said his step- 
brother’s opposition to the Daimler 
agreement broke depn. because 
“Claudins could not come up with 
a viable alternative." 

“With Daimler's acqnaing ma- 
jority control, we re-establish credi- 
bility at Dormer,” Justus said. 
“Dormer has never been a compa- 
ny with financial uoubks: the 
shareholders have created prob- 
lems, not the company itself. 

Claudius Dormer had said re- 
peatedly that his objection to any 
outside group acquiring majority 
control of the company doived 
from a desire lo observe the testa- 
ment of his father, the company 
founder. He declined to elaborate

BEIJ ING — r^rina anztonneed

The 15-percent “enterprise in- 
come tax” will be levied on foreign 
offices that earn money from ser-

the stale-run press said. 

They also said a 5-percent “in-

would be levied on all foreign, 
Hong Kong and Macao enterprises 
starting June 1. 

Overseas business representa-

Nissan Agrees 
To Purchase US. 
Supercomputer 

Washington Post Service 

WASHINGTON — Nissan 
Motor Co. has agreed to buy a 

nnihmriHion-dollar U-S.-made 
supercomputer for its Japanese 
design facilities after negotia- 
tions that were seen as a test of 

Japan’s willingness to purchase 
UJL high- technology products. 

The contract, which Nissan 
announced Tuesday in Tokyo, 
was awarded to Ckay Research 
Inc, a Minneapolis company 
considered the world l ea der in 
supercomputers. 

Hitachnaoncbed a late, high- 
level attempt to win the con- 
tract. . 

The U.S. commerce secre- 
tary, Malcolm Baldiige, wrote 
to Kajiro Murata, Japan’s min- 
ister erf international trad e and 
industry, in February to suggest 
that Nissan's decision should be 
made cn “tbe technical merits 
of the equipment and soft- 
ware." 

Nissan said it selected Cray 
after “an exhaustive evalua- 
tion” of Japanese mid U.S. 
products. 

Cray has persisted in its ef- 
forts to sell s uper c omputers to' 
lappraw. commercial compa- 
nies despite what appeared to 
be a ban on the pnrdiase of the 
American product by Japanese 
government concerns. . 


payments and sudden cancellations 
of foretgQ business agreements. 

“This appears to be part of a 
pattern to stretch out Diet; pay- 
ments.” a diplomat said. “It’s just 
another form of gpoeration of reve- 
nue.” 

US. business sources said at 
least five U.S. companies had com- 
pkuned in tbe last two months 
about Chinese delays in repaying 
debts, and said this indicated that 
Beylng had a cash-flow problem. 

After a spate of bonus-giving, 
leading and spending, China’s 
hanking system has tightened np 
significantly on the spending of 
foreign currency. 

The newly appointed director of 
the People’s Bank of China, Stale 
CoundUor Chen Mnbua, is known 
as a conservative spender. 

Enterprises liable for the new tax 
appear to indude the China-based 
offices of more than 60 foreign 
banks, which offer consulting «nrt 
liaison services to foreign clients 
but are restricted firom conducting 
ordinary banking activities. 

Several foreign law and account- 
ing firms have also set up represen- 
tative offices in China to provide 
consultancy sendees for economic 
contracts between CHinrse and 
overseas partners. 

The reports said the enterprise 
income tax would apply to afi of- 
fices receiving commissions, re- 
bates, fees arm other income for 
provixfii^c on sultat k a , market sur- 
veys, Haisou and other services to 
riienfac in fhnra 

They quoted Jin Xin, director of 
the finance Ministry’s . general tax- 
. ation bureau, as saying that such 
offices would be taxed “so matter 
where the payments are 
whether in Hm-m qj- elsewhere.” 

Asked whether this mi ght dis- 
courage foreign businesses from 
coming to China, the Foreign 
.Trade Ministry spokesman, Huang 
•Wenjun, said if they “come to Chi- 
na just to have general contacts, 
then there will be no taxation.” 

The announcement ■ coincided 
with the end of a visa by the U.S. 
commerce secretary, Malcolm Bal- 
drige, who said he had complained 
to the Chinese about the high cost 
of doing business m China. 

Foreign businesses have long 
protested what they call “bidden 
taxation” by the nibieac govern- 
ment, indudiTTg high prices for la- 
bor and sup^ms and 100-percenl 
ditty on imported equipment. 

Foreigners mast mre all Chinese 

fcdp through a government-run 

agency, which in some cases 
charges 10 times the amount the 
Chinese employees receive in 


All of these securities having been sold, this announcement appears as a matter of record only.

“These are positive step, but 
only the fast stqx,” said John A 
Martin, a rese arc h analyst with

New York Times Service 

NEW YORK — British Airways 
and tbe other 1 1 HafanHomo in an 
antimist suit filed by the liquidator 
of Laker Airways are optimistic 
that they will have an out-of-court 
settlement ready by Monday to 
present to a United States judge in 
Washington, according to a source 
close to the negotiations. 

The settlement, winch is expect- 
ed to total about $65 millio n, would 


be presented to Judge Harold H. 

S. District Court 


Greene of the UK 
of the District of Columbia, who 
has presided over the suit. The 
source said Tuesday that all the 
defendants have agreed to the 
amounts each would pay toward 
settling with 1-aVer creditors and 
bankers. 

The sauce also said that Sir 
Freddie Laker had indicated at a 
court conference in Washington on 
May 8 that be would be satisfied 
with the $8 millio n offered him, 
although he had some reservations 
about the terms.

consensus pstimams that they en- 
courage are expected to abate 
shortly." 

David A. Levine, economist' at 
Sanford C. Bernstein, agrees that 
chances at arecessioc occurring in 
1985 are dim — less than one in 
five — but believes die dunces of a 
major business upturn beginning as 
early as the second quarter are even 
less. However, he thinks interest 
rates will decline sharply in June 
and July as the Federal Reserve 
eases, igniting the economy. 

While tbe senario of a burgeon- 
ing economy, whenever it might 
crane, would indeed be bullish Tor 
Wall Street, not everybody sees the 
world unfolding that way. Joseph 
Granville, an influential market ad- 
viser. believes strongly that the 
stock market anticipates the econo- 
my, but says whal is being cast now 
is a “bear market shadow.” 

Citing whal he views as numer- 
ous current similarities to 1929, he 
is particularly fearful of the federal 
deficit's ultimate impact on stocks. 

“While it took McDonald’s over 
20 yems to sdl 50 billkm hamburg- 
ers, the Reagan administration re- 
duced the significance of that fig- 
ure by producing a deficit of over 
$800 biflion in only four years, thus 
outrunning McDonald’s growth by 
80 to 1,” be said..

open,” the minister said. 

Countertrade also tends to weak- 
en the market because it generally 
involves substantial discounts. 

In a typical arrangement, the oO- 
prododng country transfers crude 
to a trading company. The trader 
then sells the ofl on the spot market 
and puls the proceeds mto an es- 
crow account. -

ever, the price of the goods proba- 
bly has been artificially inflated to 
offset any loss on resale of the raL 
“That is precisely the sham,” said a 
trade spraialist at a U.S. bank in 
London. 

Countertrade also can result in 
the damping of large quantities of 
oil oo a weak market. CM compa-

THE COMPLETE LETTERS OF 
SIGMUND FREUD TO WILHELM 
FLIESS, 1887-1904 

Translated and edited by Jeffrey Moussaieff 
Masson. 505 pages. Illustrated. S25. 
Belknap-Harvard University Press, 79 Gar- 
den Street, Cambridge, Mass. 02138. 

Reviewed by 

Christopher Lehmann- Haupt 

Y OU PICK up this book expecting it to 
blow up in your hands. After aS, it con- 
tains the complete letters written by Sign and 
Freud to his friend and colleague Wilhelm 
Fliess, which means that it adds 133 previously 
unpublished items to the 168 letters that com- 
posed “The Origins of Psycho-Analysis," 
whose English-language edition first appeared 
in 1954. 

And, after alL it was these 1 33 letters that set 
off a chain reaction whose main explosions 
included the following controversial events: 
the falling out between the present volume's 
editor, Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, and the 
trustees of the Sigmund Freud Archives over 
the significance of the letters; the assertion by 
Masson in his 1984 volume, “The Assault on 
Truth: Freud's Suppression of the Seduction 
Theory." that the letters revealed how Freud, 
in developing his psychoanalytic theories, had 
dishonestly denied the evidence of actual se- 
ductions of children by their parents in 19th- 
century Vienna, and the publication of Janet 
Malcolm's book, “In the Freud Archives,” 
which deftly- traced the history of the entire 
unseemly affair. 

But what impresses one about “The Com- 
plete Letters” are the peaceful perspectives 
unfolded in its pages. Surprisingly enough, this 
results from the meticulous scholarship that 
Masson seems to have applied to his project 
He is above the battle here, throwing no 
punches and digging no elbows. His energy has 
gone into putting the letters in their proper 
historical perspective, into painstakingly cor- 
recting the errors of “The Origins of Psycho- 
Analysis,” into annotating obscure references 
in Lhe correspondence. 

Indeed, Masson has done such a conscien- 
tious job that one can't even distinguish be- 
tween the old letters and the newly published 
ones unless one troubles to consult the appen- 
dix as one reads along. The most dramatic 
result of this seamless rrwldrng is that there 
appears to be no dramatic revision of the

RS OF seduction theory. Just as one had always beard, 
M Freud at first took his patients hieraBy ^ when 


them when they were children, then decided, 
by tuTSf of the statistical unlikelihood of such 
prevalent abuse, that these “assaults must 

nave been fantasized. Masson even takes rams 

to clarify and sharpen Freud’s rejection of his 
wirlier views, which would seem to counteract 
Masson's assertion of Freud's dishonesty. 

What absorbs one instead, reading Freud’s 
letters to Fliess, is the peculiar nature of their 
relationship. It is a two-sided view, of course, 
because, except at the tnd, we get only Fraids 
side of the correspondence. But if one may be 
permitted to draw the briefest thumbnail 
deftrfi of the friendship as it emerges in these 
pages. It began with passionate courtship on 
Freud's part, gradually subsided into gentle 
pammization (interrupted by the subtle but 
savage satisfaction that Freud seems to have 
derived from Fliess' medical blunder in the 
Fmmfl Frinrfein affair), and finally collapsed 
because Freud had outgrown his friend. 

Why did Freud need Fliess’ friendship? 
There are pitfalls and dragons here, and mate- 
rial for a thousand monographs, not a few of 
them focusing on what Freud refers to in an 
unpublished 1910 letter to Sander Ferencs as 
“the greater independence that results from 
having overcome my homosexuality.” 

But the drama one plays out in one’s mind as 
one reads this volume is that here are these two 
characters, one in Beriin, the other in Vienna, 
working on these absolutely off-the-wall ideas. 
Freud starts off proposing, among other 
things th at n eur asthenia is ca used by mastur- 
bation in mains and tr ansmi tted (0 the normal 

females they many. Fliess is working on a 
theory relating the nose to the sexual organs. /[. 
Freud sends rliess patients with sexual prob- 
lems. Fliess performs surgery on their noses. 

In time (and in a series of drafts that unfold 
dramatically in these pages) Freud, constructs 
the foundations of psychoanalysis. He writes 
“Studies of Hysteria,” “The Interpretation of 
Dreams,” and other masterwarks. Meanwhile, 
Fliess continues with the nose, develops a the- 
ory of periodicity that sounds like the ancestor 
of biorhythms, and propo s es that left-handed- 
ness is a sign of homosocnality. The friendship 
grows shamed. Fliess throws a tantrum be- 
cause Freud has insufficiently acknowledged 
his ideas on bisexuality. Freud apologizes. 
Fliess rejects the apology. The relationship 
cods. This, at least, is the way that I would 
draw it ifl had to do “The Complete Letters” , 
for Classic Comics. f\ 

Meanwhile, what became of the seduction 
theoiy? What was all the biting and scratching 
about? In the sequel to the first Classic Comics 
I would depict Jeffrey Masson enraged in a 
titanic Oedipal struggle with the elders of (he 
Freud Archives. Or maybe I would have him 
ranting like the man in the old Philadelphia 
Bulletin advertisements, just eying to draw 
attention to himself. 

In any case, he has got his way. He has 
■ created a fuss that makes ns want to read “The 
Complete Letters of Sigmund Freud to WII- 
hdm Fliess.” There, instead of a minefidd, we 
find a landscape whoe scholars may safely 
graze. It is an nnHfcdy outcome of a war, and 
Masson should be given all due credit.

— * The trio combined for 6 goals 
and IS points to spade the Oilers to 
a 10-5 rout of Chicago, putting Ed- 
___ monton within cme victory of sob- 
duing the stubborn Blade Hawks in 
1 their best-of-seven National Hock- 
ey League semifinal ptayoff series. 
1 The teams return to Chicago for 
1 Thursday’s Game 6 in the Camp- 
beD Conference finals. 

\ Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 
■ Flyers rallied to down Quebec, 2-1, 
*' and took a 3-2 lead in the Wales 
Conference finals. Game 6 will be 
played Thursday night in Fhfladd- 
phik. 

' The Oilers knew they needed an 
explosive showing after being 




shackled in two losses in Chicago. 
“Everyone jnst did their own job,” 
said Kiuzi, who bad three goals and 
two assists after failing to seme in 
Chicago. 

It was Kura’s third hat trick in 
the current playoffs, tying the re- 
cord set in 1983 by Mike Bossy and 
Mark Messier. 

Edmonton n eede d two first-peri- 
od goals from Kurri and one by 
Mike Krushduyriri to offset the 
first three of five Chicago power- 
play goals. But the Oileis were get- 
ting skating room: They had 17 
opening-period shots at goal tender 
Murray Banserman ana their of- 
fense was at fidl flow. 

Coffey wound up with a goal and 
five assists; his six prams were the 
most points ever in a playoff game 
by a defenseman. 

He assisted on three of the four 
second-period goals the Oilers 
scored to assume control after the 
Hanks had taken a 4-3 lead. Mark 
Messer tallied 21 seconds after De- 
nis Savard banged in Chicago's 
fourth power-play goal; and the 


Oilers then started to pull away on 
two goals by Gretzky and Klim’s 
third.

In Qodiec City, after two lack- 
luster periods — and a tongue-lash- 
ing from Coach Mike Keenan — 
the Flyers exploded to edge the 
Nordiques. “Mike gave us a very, 
very stiff talk between the second 
and third periods," said Murray 
Craven, who scored the winner at 
15:01 of the final period. “He told 
us we didn’t look like we wanted to 
win." 

Outsbotby 18-12 in the first two 
periods and loang by 1-0, the Fly- 
ers came out winging for the final 
20 imputes. 

Joe Paterson tied the game on a 
power play at the one-minute mark 
when he tipped a Mark Howe pass 
past goalie Mario Gosselin and 
into toe right side of the net Cra- 
ven’s decisive goal came on a wrist 
shot from the right face-off circle; 
he took a cross-ice pass from Brian 
Propp and put the puck over Gos- 
scHn's shoulder. (AP, UPI)

Celtics 2-Up on 76ers; Nuggets Even Series 


The Associated Press 

BOSTON — It was just one bad 
quarter, but it left the Philadelphia 
76ers perilously dose to the end of 
one fine National Basketball Asso- 
ciation season. 

Robert Parish and Dennis John- 
son oatscored the entire 76er squad 
in the third period here Tuesday 
night as the Cdtics rolled to a 106- 
98 victory and a 2-0 lead in the 
Eastern Conference final playoff 
series. 

Meanwhile, Denver evened the 
Western Conference final by blow- 
ing out Los Angeles, 136-114. 

"7116766X5 didn’t show up in the 
third quarter,’’ said the losers’ Ju- 
lius Erring. “You have to play all 
four quarters to play basketball — 
winning basketball. . The next two 

NBA PLAYOFFS 

gaTMB, rm Saturday and Sunday, 
will be in Philadelphia. Only four 
NBA teams have ever won best-of- 
seven series after losing the first 
two games. 

The 76ers, with the NBA’s 
fourth-best regular-season record, 
led by 13 in the second quarter, but 
managed jnst 18 points — to Bos- 
ton’s 32 — in me third period, 
when Johnson had 10 points and 
Parish 9 pom ts and 8 rnxmnds. 

Boston-hit only one-third of its 
first-half flora - shots. “We could 
have crumbled," said Coach K.C. 
Jones. “They went ahead by 8 to 10 
points. At halftime we just talked 
about what we weren’t doing. We 
weren’t running the offense with 
any semblance of patience." The 
Cdtics improved to 473 percent 
from the field in the second half. 


points in the spurt to spark Boston 
to a 62-58 advantage with 7:38 left 
in the third period. The 76ers came 
back with 5 consecutive points on a 
free throw by Charles Barkley and 
field goals by Malone and Erring, 
but Boston dosed the quarter with 
an 18-7 surge and its 8-point bulge. 

□ 

In Inglewood, California, Alex 
.English poured in 19 of his 40 
points in the fourth quarter as Den- 


ver outsorted Los Angeles by 47-28 
to ice the victory that squared mat- 
ters in the Western Conference fin- 
als at a game apiece. 

A late-game scuffle between Los 
Angeles center Kareem Abdut-Jab- 
bar and Denver's Danny Schayes 
resulted in Abdul-Jabbar’s second 
technical foul and his automatic 
ejection. “They keyed on Kareem," 
said the Laker coach, Pat RHey. 
“Some call it good defense and otn- 
ers call it karate." 


Doug Moe. Denver's Coach, saw 
it differently: “We were playing — 
they were the ones throwing the 
elbows and doing the tackling." 

Dan Issel adds! 22 points for the 
Nuggets; teammates Calvin Nan 
and Elston Turner contributed 18 
apiece. The Lakers were plagued by 
turnovers and poor shooting 
throughout — including Abdul- 
Jabbar's 4-of-16 from the floor. By- 
ron Scott led Los Angeles with 22 
points and James Worthy had 17. 


Abdul-Jabbar was held to 13. as 
was Johnson. 

Abdul-Jabbar’s ejection came af- 
ter Schayes and Earvin Johnson 
tangled briefly. Abdul-Jabbar 
grabbed Schayes. riding him to the 
floor and holding him there. The 
two had exchanged words and' 
shoves a minute eartira , resulting in 
Abdul-Jabar's first te chni cal. 

“TTiere wasn't one person in tht 
NBA who gave us a prayer of win- 
ning ibis game," said Moe.

For the game, they outscored Phila-

Bird scored 13 of his 24 points and 
the lead ranged from 4 to 10 points. 

It was the second consecutive 
game in which Boston held the 
76ers under 100 points (the Celtics 
won Sunday’s opener, 108-93). 

In stretching its home playoff, 
winning streak to 10, Boston was 
led by Bird’s 24 points, and 22 each 
from Johnson and Kevin McHalc.

May 10, 1985 

Dear Freddy. 

The dinner has been called off. 

1 don’t know if you saw it in the 
papers or on TV but my bank has 
been taken over by the slate. Whal 
happened was this dipsy -doodle se- 
curities outfit in Florida walked 
away with our money. 

We could have survived that but 
the news or our losses got into the 
papers, and suddenly the deposi- 
tors made a run on the h ank. 

It was a small run until the TV 
stations showed the people with 
their beach chairs and paper bags 
waiting to take their dough out 
Then all hell broke loose. 

Obviously we couldn't give ev- 
erybody their money back since it 
was all out on loans or lost some- 
where in the swamps of Florida and 
New Jersey. 

What with the unfortunate pub- 
licity, the bank examiners decided 
to come in with their crummy little 
hand calculators. They found some 
minor discrepancies on the books, 
which they claimed were fraudu- 
lent but which were really little 
mistakes in bookkeeping. 

They also said 1 took out several 
million dollars for my own person- 
al expenses, which they’re going to 
have to damn well prove. 

Anyway, the governor is blazing 
mad and the people who lost thdr 
savings are kmda upset, so we de- 
cided to postpone the “Citizen of 
the Year” dinner until I could work 
out some sort of plea bargain with 
the attorney general. 

Besides, I’m now living in the 
Bahamas and it’s hard to pin me 
down for a date when 1 can pick up 
the award. 

All the best, 
George 


figurine how to spread it around 
Heh, hah, heh. What I mean, 
Freddy, is that, if I’m paying 7 
percept to the depositors, 1 have to 
loan it out at 15 percent to make 
any money. 

Well, fortunately, there are a lot 
of people in the United States who 
are more than willing to pay more 
than the going rate to borrow mon- 
ey. Most of them were turned down 
by the other banks for one stlly 
reason or another. 

These guys and dolls are salt of 
the earth, they’re real estate devel- 
opers, commodities speculators, oQ 
drillers, takeover artists and horse- 
racing enthusiasts. 

Besides the money I make on 


year-old British children and re- 
peated every seven years until 
they are 28. The result is “28 Up," 
Michael Apted’s award-winning 
documentary, which has touched 
audiences in the United States 
and abroad It has also given edu- 
cators and psychologists a rare 
longitudinal glimpse of the myste- 
rious proc e s s of growing up. 

Shown recently as pan of the 
Los Angeles film festival, “28 
Up" won wide critical acclaim. 

A pied, 44. best known in the 
United States for “Coal Miner's 
Daughter,*’ was a researcher at 
Britain's independent Granada 
Television in 1963 when the pro- 
ject had its modest be ginning. 

“At the time," he recalled re- 
cently. “we were being fed a lot of 
stuff in England — the social rev- 
olution, the swin ging '60s and 
‘You never had it so good' This 
was to be a kind of salutary tale 
about the class system." 

He chose 14 children, not 
knowing be would follow them 
into adulthood across continents, 
up and down dreams. They were 
rich, poor and middle-class. They 
came from cities, suburbs ana 
farms. Ten were boys, four were 
girls. One was black. All looked 
into the camera and in response 
to Apted’s questions, poured out 
their views on such topics as love, 
work, money, class and race rela- 
tions. 

“What are your plans, John?" 
an upper-class 7-year-old was 
asked. John spoke confidently of

private schools, “if 1 pass the 
exam, and then Cambridee." Cut 


exam, and then Cambridge." Cut 
to Paul in a children's home, who 
asked “What’s a university?" 

The resulting program, “7 Up," 
was a sad funny, touching, suc- 
cessful piece of television. The 
young researcher thanked his 
small subjects and wished them 
well. That, be thought, was that. 

No one was more surprised 
than he when “7 Up" became a 
standard work in teacher colleges 
and psychology classes. Child de- 
velopment experts uiged Apted 
then a director at Granada, to 
film the same children as adoles- 
cents. It was a challenge. Ip re- 
called “but also a burden because 


I'm not a psychologist or an edu- 
cator and I kept thinking. ‘Am I 
asking the right questions?' ” 

In “14 Up,” the children hid 
from the camera. They appeared 
confused self-absorbed and in 
one or two cases, drugged. 
Though “21 Up" was more suc- 
cessful its director admitted: “It 
was far more interesting to pro- 
fessionals than general televirion 
viewers." 

In the next seven years, Apted’s 
filmmaking career flourished in 
the United States. Some said he 
had “gone Hollywood" and 
would not return to Granada for 
“28 Up." But be did. Two of his 
subjects refused to be inter- 
viewed one had become a barris- 
ter — and the other a documenta- 
ry filmmaker. Still with the 12 
left, the film came alive. 

“It catches fire at age 28," Apt- 
ed said “because it shows human 
beings making major decisions 
about their lives — careers, mar- 
riage, children. The dreams ex- 
pressed as children, adolescents 
and young people must be mea- 
sured against reality. They are 
adults now. painfully getting 
through the day." 


Shown , in Britain six months 
ago. “28 Up" won a television 
academy award. It is expected to 
be broadcast in the United States. 


28 Up" uses footage from the 
earlier films . The effect is similar 
to time-lapse photography: The 
children seem to sprout, bud and 
blossom into maturity in seconds. 
Wives, husbands and children 
spring up beside them. 

If there is a star, it’s Tony, from 
London's East End. At 7, he got 
into fights, stayed out too late and 
haled the rich. At 21 be was a 
bookie's runner after a failed ca- 
reer as a jockey. At 28 he is driv- 
ing a cab. supporting a family and 
parlaying his celebrity from the 
earlier f ilms into bit acting parts: 

Apted recalled the young 
Tony: “I was convinced that little 
tear-a way jockey boy would end 
up in prison because of his envi- 
ronment and the pressures on 
him- In the early interviews I 
dwelled on that and he kept say- 
ing. Tm not like thaL’ I didn’t 
believe him and I was wrong.” 

Bruce, an almost saintly child 
of privilege, planned to be a mis- 
sionary. After distin guishing him- 
self at Oxford, Bruce taught 


mathematics in a poor pan of 
London — at Tony's old schooL 
His students are from Bangla- 
desh. Of all the subjects, only 
Bruce consciously set out to 
change his social class and suc- 
ceeded, Apted said. 

Two boys who fared better 
than might have been expected 
ended up leaving Britain. Paul, an 
orphan who vowed to remain a 
bachelor because a wife would 
force him to “eat greens," is a 
happily married, fairly prosper- 
ous bricklayer in Australia. Nick, 
bom on a Taim. or educated par- 
ents, longed to know “all about 
the moon.” He became a nuclear 


physicist and is an assistant pro- 
fessor at die University of Wis- 


fessor at the University of Wis- 
consin. 

Nick's outspoken wife is one of 
what Apted calls the film's “re- 
flective girls." The wives of the 
film subjects are substitutes for 
the girls he wishes he had chosen 
in 1963. “We missed the boat by 
not choosing enough girls," Ire 
said. “Perhaps the most impor- 
tant cultural issue of our time is' 
that choice between working and 
bringing up a family ” 

At this point he said, “our four 
girls have only got bigger and ful- 


filled thdr biological function.” 
He added, however, that the 
women might “pay off* dramati- 
cally at 35. “As their children get 
older " he said, “they’re going to 
have to make serious choices.” 

The three working-class wom- 
en, Jackie, Lynn ana Susan, seem 
content at 28. Their marriages are 
solid, their childr en healthy and 
thdr homes better than the ones 
they grew up in. When the direc- 
tor a s ks if they think the rich have 
an advantage, one of them says: 
“We never think about it for sev- 
' en years until you come along and 
ask os again.” 

But it is the middle dass that 
intrigues Apted. an insurance in- 
spector’s son and a Cambridge 
graduate who drifted into film. 
“In England,” he said, “and to a 
lesser extent in this country, tire 
lower-middle classes are hurting. 
All you hear in America is' tins 
nonsense about Yuppies, but 
once you get out of Los Angeles 
and New York you find that these 
young people are being hung* out 
to dry. 

Clearly, two of his middle-class 
subjects, Neil and Peter, are hurt- 
ing. Both warned to be astronauts 
when they grew up. Both come 
from Liverpool 

Neil was among tire smartest 
and most charming of the chil- 
dren. He dropped out of college, 
suffered a series of nervous break- 
downs and became a red use. He 
roams the countryside in search 
of odd jobs. 

- Peter, another promising child, 
is an embittered schoolteacher, 
railing against tire Conservative 
government — “the most incom- 
petent, uncaring bloody shower 
we’ve ever had.” He admits to 
being lazy and his wife says be 
looks “on the negative side of life 
before the positive.” 

Apted worries about tire Peters 
of this generation. “That’s a voice 
you don’t often hear in the me- 
dia," he’said: “the voice of lower- 
middle-dass kids who grew up in 
the ’60s and 70s on the wave of 
tire brave new world, tire educa- 
tion, the hope and tire rest Those 
people now are stock. There’s a 
stagnancy about them and it’s 
tragic.” 

There is a larger tragedy in tire 
film: Children who are bright, 
hopeful and spontaneous at 7 be- 
come disillusioned. 

“Yes, it is tragic,” Apted said, 
“but lhaf s life, isn’t it?*
