they fear it will lead to abortion services 
becoming more widely available around 
the world. As Mr. Gore noted, 173 coun- 
tries already permit abortion under at least 
limited circumstances. 

The vice president said the proposed 
alterations to the plan's language rep re- 

hays waged an increasingly vociferous 
campaign against the meeting, which is 
sponsored by the United Nations, because 

toward compromise. The draft plan of 
action, which would not be binding in any 
case, already said, “Women should have 
ready access to quality health-care ser- 
vices that include reliable information, 
counseling and medical care to enable 
them to terminate pregnancies in those 
cases where it is allowed by law. if they so 

have long contended that the CtintOD ad- 
ministrauon was trying to push the Cairo 
document toward a more aggressive posi- 
tion on abortion. 

Some, for example, cite a cable that the 
State Department sent to its ambassadors 
in March saying: “The United States be-

been reduced to 506 times at a temperature

The modification might seem trivial, but 
it is part of a broader change of mind-set

car company and through the rest of the 
nation’s auto industry.

obsessive attention to detail, a shift that 
they contend will not compromise basic 
quality or reliability. 

“With excessive standards, we designed 
overengineered cars,” said Akihiro Wada, 
a senior managing director at Toyota. A 
few years ago, he said, “wc had a philoso- 
phy that as long as we made good-quality 
vehicles, no matter how expensive they 
were, people would be satisfied.” 

Now, however, the first expression out 
of a Japanese auto executive's mouth is 
likely to be “value for money.” In a sense, 
Japan’s automobile companies, which first 
made their mark with low-priced but reli- 
able vehicles, are returning to their roots. 

The new philosophy has found its ex- 
pression in a series of relatively inexpen- 
sive vehicles that have been introduced in 
Japan in the last few months. 

Toyota’s new small sport-utiHty vehicle, 
known as the RAV 4 and made on a lightly 
automated assembly line here, is consid- 
ered to be the first embodiment of the new 
approach by Japan’s largest car company.

RABAT. Morocco — The deaths of a 
pilot and his 43 passengers and crew 
members took on an air of mystery 
Friday. His relatives and friends de- 
scribed the pilot as a happy man who 
would not have committed suicide, yet 
the official investigation said no expla- 
nation was possible except a deliberate 
decision to ram his plane into the side of 
a mountain. 

“My son is sane,” the mother of the 
piloi told the Rabat daily L’Opinion. 

He cannot commit suicide, much less 
loll anyone, because he loves everyone.” 

“He has no problems, family or oth- 
erwise,” said Amina bait Tayeb. the 
mother of the pilot, Younes KhyatL 

An official inquiry into the crash said 
no technical problems could be found. 

“The only reason for the accident is 
the deliberate desire of the captain, who 
switched off the automatic pilot and 
hurled the aircraft at the ground,” the 
head of the inquiry, Mohammed Mou- 

fid. said at a news conference Thursday 

It was a “deliberate decision to com- 
mit suicide,” be said. 

Bui relatives and friends said thai 
Mr. Khyati, 32, had planned to marry at 
the end of the year and was due to be 
promoted. He had even purchased fur- 
niture for a new home. 

“These are things that would general- 
ly make someone feel life was rosy.” 
Mustapha Ouakine, head of the Moroc- 
can air crew union. Personnel Navi-

with French radio.

Hopes Fading for Clinton 9 s Health Push 

By R. W. Apple Jr. 

Sew York Times Service 

WASHINGTON — As the Senate tot- 
tered toward a two-week recess, even a big 
victory cm the crime bill did relatively little 
to Hft flagging spirits in the White House 
about the health care legislation which 
President Bill Clinton has made the center- 
piece of his administration. 

Mr. Clinton said Thursday that he did 
not consider the legislation dead, and add- 
ed that he did not think the recess would 
kill it. 

But it is very sick, and there is no effort 
to hide that fact among the people who 
have labored for two years to fashion a 
new health care system. 

In fact, the president and his advisers 
have decided to rethink their situation 
while Congress, and many of them, are on 

Having scaled back his bottom-line de- 
mand from a system that would provide 


universal care to one that makes decisive 
progress in that direction, the president 
must now consider whether he would ac- 
cept an incremental bill achieving much 
less or whether, as he promised not too 
long ago, be would veto it. 

Speaker Thomas S. Foley, Democrat of 
Washington, said this week that he could 

settle for a bill providing progress on in- 
surance-law changes — something, as he 
said, “that can pass and make significant, 
if initial, steps toward the goals of cover- 
age, avoidance of cost-shifting, mainte- 
nance of all quality, aS those things.” 

A number of senators, both Republican 
and Democratic, tend to agree with him. 

Mr. Clinton does not appear to have 
readied that point yet. But in discussions 
in recent days, he and his aides axe report- 
ed to have been asking one another ques- 
tions about some of the measures that 
might be attainable in September, if in- 
deed anything can be attained. 

Among them: Does this do more harm

Traders Cheer 
Cool Growth 
And Benign 
U.S. Inflation 

Dow Soars by 51 Points 
And Dollar CUnibs on 
Belief Rates Won 9 t Rise 

By Lawrence Malkin 

haemanomi Herald Tribune 

NEW YORK — The government’s lat- 
est picture of the American economy 
showed it growing benignly on Friday, 
cheering the world's financial markets with 
the hope that a moderate expansion would 
dissuade the U.S. central bank from push- 
ing up interest rates to cool inflation. 

Wall Street spurted ahead so sharply 
that automatic trading curbs were imposed 
on the New York Stock Exchange, and the 
rush from abroad to get in on the action 
sent the dollar shooting up in New York by 
three pfennig against the Deutsche mark. 

The Commerce Department’s revised 
figures for the gross domestic product dur- 
ing the second quarter showed the econo- 
my growing at an annual rate of 3.8 per- 
cent — not much different from the 
preliminary estimate issued a month ago of 
3.7 percent but as much as a half a percent- 
age point lower than expected by financial 

The government's revised data caught 
more of the late spring buildup in inven- 
tories by business, especially retailers, as 
consumers pursued a steady and relatively 
weak spending path after last fall’s post- 
recession splurge. 

Consumer spending rose by 1.4 percent 
during the period, a slight improvement 
over the earlier figure but far more sustain- 
able than the spending rate of almost 4.5 
percent during the fall and winter quarters. 
This left more goods on store shelves, so 
growth in inventories was adjusted upward 
to 556.3 billion from 554 billion. A reduc- 
tion in inventories curtails, which holds 
down GDP growth in a statistically ob- 
scure relationship that is only vaguely un- 
derstood by most traders. 

Inflation continued to be moderate, 
measured at 2.9 percent. This was clearly 
good news for bond markets, where vola- 
tility this year has made stock markets 

The underlying ouesvion posed by the 
data, said John Williams, chief economist 
of Bankers Trust, is whether the U.S. econ- 
omy will level off before it reaches capaci- 
ty, or will it hit the wall and force the 
Federal Reserve Board to raise short-term 
interest rates this autumn. 

The Fed has pushed up rales several 
times this year, beginning Feb. 4 and most 
recently on Aug. 17. These tightening 
moves increase the cost of loans, dampen- 
ing demand for credit and thus slowing 
economic growth to what the central bank 
hopes will be a noninflatiooary level. 

On Friday, the financial markets bet on 
the benign economic scenario that does 
not require Fed tightening. 

Bond markets finned in the United 
States and Europe: Interest yields on the 
benchmark 30-year U.S. Treasury bond 
fell on Friday io 7.48 percent, from 7.53 

Lower interest rates meant that the com- 
puterized black boxes, which determine 
big institutional stock trades sent buy sig- 
nals, even though a slower economy even- 
tually will mean smaller stock dividends. 

Demand for stock was further exagger- 
ated by professional traders who have sold 
more than a billion stocks short this year in 
a bet that Wall Street’s decline will contin- 
ue. U they are wrong, they will have to pay 
more to buy stock they don’t own. 

The stock market immediately took off. 
with the the Dow Jones industrial average 
jumping 27 points within the first half- 
hour of trading and then advancing steadi- 
ly through the morning more 50 points, 
setting off the stock exchange's trading 
curbs. The index closed 51.16 points high- 
er, at 3,881.05 in New York. 

A few European markets were still open, 
and in London and Paris they moved up 
sharply in sympathy. 

At the bean of all this movement was 
the effect of the inventory numbers in 
holding down growth in GDP. What the 
inventory numbers measure is essentially a 
change in the rate of growth, and no one 
really can tell whether inventories have 
risen because businesses have bought more 
goods in the hope of selling them or are 
simply stuck with them because they 
guessed wrong about future sales. 

Could the higher inventories imply a

A Light-Hearted, Light- Weighted London-Paris Flight 

By Joseph Fitcheu ■ 

tnamatisted Herald Tribme 

PARIS — Moments out of Heathrow International 
Airport in London and still weH short of the English 
Channel, the stinging rain that had drenched the fliers, in 
open cockpits, turned into impenetrable cloud, a wall of 
weather down to the deck. 

A single plane slipped through, but the other 17 
aircraft swung into line as the flight leader circled once 
and then led them down to land on a grassy field in Kent, 
bumping to a halt not far from grazing sheep. 

“Thai’s the way they did it in 1919!” the flight leader, 
Brian Milton, shouted enthusiastically about the forced 
limiting . “When the weather socked in, they set down in a 
field to wait it out — something most planes can’t do any 

It seemed a long way to La Coupole, the Paris restau- 
rant that was their final goal, but even in the dripping 

grass, the expedition clung to its plan of duplicating the 
first regular London-Paris air service 75 years ago. 

Because the Aug. 2S date coincided with the 50th 
anniversary of the liberation of Paris, the pilots and 
journalist passengers planned io join those festivities, 
perhaps with a forbidden flight past the Eiffel Tower. 

The re-creation had two other goals. One was promot- 
ing a chari table cause, the Cancer Relief Macmillan 
Fund, a London organization that finances specialized 

But the pilots, who cared enough to pay for their own 
fud, were also setting a new standard for their aircraft, 
microligbts. These craft are plastic-and-canvas doodle- 
bugs, each with an engine scarcely larger than a big 

An outgrowth of powered hang-gliding, they offer 
enthusiasts a taste of flying at its purest, soaring with the

For Mr. Milton, a television producer and aviation 
historian, microlights offer the best of aviation’s future 
and its past. Cheap and practical, these tiny craft are so 
versatile that almost one private aircraft in five in Britain 
today is a microlighL 

At the same time, miciolights incarnate flying’s heroic 
past by matching old records with modem courage: Mr. 
Milton himself flew one to Australia, and an old Etonian 
who was also on the Macmillan Flight flew solo to South 
Africa, two classic Empire destinations. 

The expedition started on a heartwarming note for 
microlighters when Heathrow’s frequency crackled with 
the voice of a 747 captain sounding as though a UFO had 
trespassed in his air lane: “I think I just saw a micro-

Returning Jews Take Fond Last Look at Lodz Ghetto 

By David Margolick 

New York Tima Service 

LODZ, Poland — For three days this week, 
Lodz was once more filled with the w ailin g 
sounds of klezmer music and Yiddish songs. 
Men with beards and hats once a gain strolled 
down Piotrkowska Street. Cries of "Maze! tov 
Filled the air as a rabbi hammered a shiny new 
mezuzah into a doorway at Revolution of 1905 
Street And Jews again lined Lutomierska Street 
unrestrained by ghetto walls. 

Fifty years ago this month, the Germans 
cleared out all but about 800 of the Lodz ghetto's 
220,000 Jews, deponing to Auschwitz the 80,000 
or so who had not already been gassed or died of 
starvation or disease. By war's end, all but 10,000 
of them, remnants of what had been, after War- 
saw, the second-largest Jewish site in Europe, 
had perished. 

This week, 200 former ghetto dwellers re- 
turned to Lodz, many for the first time, most for 
probably the last. They came from Israel, the 
United States, Germany, England, Sweden, and 
in a few cases, from only a few blocks away. They 
are the survivors of postwar anti-Jewish cam- 
paigns in Poland which purged Lodz of all but a 

handful of the Jews who returned here after 

Most of the visitors were around 70 — old 
enough half a century ago to be sent to Lodz’s 
factories for the German military rather than to. 
the crematories of Chelmno, but young enough 
now to make the arduous trip home. Most are 
short their growth stunted by meager rations 
during adolescence. But most seem tough, just as 
they were tough enough to last a year in Ausch- 
witz after fair years in Poland’s First and final 

Until the Germans arrived Lodz was Poland’s 
most Jewish city. A third of its residents, includ- 
ing many of the magnates whose textile mills and 
palaces still stand here, were Jews. So were its 
most famous sons, like Arthur Rubinstein. But 
aside from the ornate, largely derelict Jewish 
cemetery, where 135,000 people who died before 
1940 rest beneath wobbly headstones and the 
50,000 who perished in the ghetto lie in un- 
marked graves, almost nothing explicitly Jewish 

Still, Jews returning here at least have the 
luxury of seeing much of what they left behind. 
While the war leveled Warsaw, much of the 19th- 
century splendor of Lodz remains. 

One of the returnees was Dr. Helena Zymler- 
Svantesson, a pediatrician in Lund, Sweden. 
Along with Dr. Helena Bergson, one of the 887 
Jews still in the ghetto when the Russians ar- 
rived, she read the historic marker where the 
Gestapo headquarters once stood then crossed 
Zgierska Street to the Baluty market There, 
vendors sell vegetables, shoes, and compact disks 
where Mordacnai Chaim Rumkowski, chairman 
of the ghetto’s Jewish council and among the last 
to be sent to Auschwitz, had his offices. 

Proceeding along scruffy streets where young 
boys now smoke cigarettes and play soccer. Dr. 
Zymler-Svantesson found the room at No. 13 
Mlynarska Street she shared with her parents, 
brother, and an elderiy couple from Vienna. 

Dr. Zymler-Svantesson seemed shinned by the 
sight of her old quarters. The spell was broken 
only when she . spotted a young mother and her 
baby in the courtyard outside. “You see children 
everywhere; that's the only good thing,” shesaid 

The Germans killed over 90 percent of Po- 
land’s 3.3 million Jews, and no one is quite sure 
how many remain. The guesses range from 7,000 
to 40,000, depending on whether one includes 
people of Jewish ancestry. But certain facts are 

dear. Poland’s only kosher butcher, for i nstance, 
can meet the Jews’ monthly demand for meat by 

lrfflrng a sjn gj g COW. 

But in Lodz as elsewhere, these is a nncro- 
renaissance, captured Monday when Rabbi Mi- 
chael Schudrich of the Ronald S, Lauder Foun- 
dation nailed a mezmah at the organization’s 
new Jewish youth center here. Beforehand, Sin>

many Jews chanted as they entered the gas cham-

Jewish property, of combating Holocaust

Kohl Rival 


BONN — Rudolf Sc harping, 
leader of the opposition Social 
Democratic Party, appeared to 
back down on Friday from ac- 
cusations by a senior aide that 
the German government had 
staged a spectacular seizure of 
smuggled plutonium. 

Mr. Scnarping declined to 
say whether be believed the ac- 
cusation, saying only that ques- 
tions remained about an under- 
cover police operation that 
netted illegal plutonium at Mu- 
nich airport two weeks ago. 

Germans have been shocked 
by four seizures of atomic con- 
traband in as many months, 
raising the specter of a “nuclear 
mafia” trading in stolen pluto- 
nium and uranium from the for- 
mer Soviet bloc. 

The Social Democrats' cam- 
paign manager, G (inter Verheu- 
gen. drew angiy denials from 
Chancellor Helmut Kohl's gov- 
ernment on Thursday after he 
said the Munich case looked 
Hke a campaign stunt before the 
October elections. 

Mr. Verheugen said the plu- 
tonium seizure had been an at- 
tempt at scaremongering in- 
tended to give the government 
an internal and foreign policy 
success before the election. 

Asked by reporters if he sup- 
ported Mr. Verheugen’s claim, 
Mr. Scharping answered: “Ev- 
erything that can be said about 
this has already been said. 

“We maintain that open 
questions remain which the 
government must answer.” 

Mr. Scharping and his party's 
parliamentary expert on securi- 
ty issues. Ulrich Maurer, said 
the government must explain 
why undercover police posing 
as nuclear buyers waited until 
the plutonium was brought into 
Germany before seizing the 

Bavarian state police who ran 
the operation captured 300 
grams {10.5 ounces) of highly 
toxic plutonium from couriers 
on a flight from Moscow. Un- 
dercover agents had asked sus- 
pected nuclear dealers to supply 
a sample of their wares.

Thais Charge Iranian in Bomb Attempt 

Nuclear Accident in Japan 

The Associated Press 

TOKYO — A nuclear power 
plant in northwestern Japan 
sharply cut its generating ca- 
pacity early Friday when a 
pump that helps circulate cool- 
ing water stopped working. A 
company official said there was 
no fear of radiation leakage at 
the plant, near Kanazawa.

BANGKOK — After a Five-month in- 
vestigation into an attempted truck bomb- 
ing here, Thai authorities are pressing 
charges against a suspected Iranian terror- 
ist, but have released two other Iranians 
for lack of evidence. 

The three men were arrested in June in 
southern Thailand on suspicion of involve- 
ment in making a powerful truck bomb 
that officials say was apparently intended 
to blow up the Israeli Embassy in a suicide 
mission in March. The mission evidently 
was foiled by a minor traffic accident. 

A similar bomb caused extensive dam- 
age last year at the World Trade Center in 
New York. Intelligence sources said there 
was no evidence that the attempted bomb- 
ing here was connected to that attack, but 
they could not rule out a link to other 
bombings, possibly including one in Ar- 
gentina on July 18 that destroyed the Bue- 
nos Aires offices of two Jewish groups and 
lolled nearly 100 people. 

An Iranian identified as Hossein Shah- 
riarifar pleaded not guilty in a Bangkok 
court Aug. 18 to several charges in connec- 
tion with the truck bomb, including mur- 
der, robbery and illegal possession of ex- 
plosives ana Firearms. 

The accused, wbo has also been identi- 
fied as Hossein Dasjiri, is suspected by 
Thai police to be a militant Muslim funda- 
mentalist implicated in other acts of ter- 
rorist violence in various countries during 
the past two years. 

He was arrested June 3 in Hat Yai. 
southern Thailand, with two other Irani- 

ans. identified as Babak Taberi and Basr 
Kazemi. They were released Aug. 16 for 
lack of evidence connecting them to the 
truck bomb. At least one other Iranian is 
still being sought, the police said. 

A Thai government prosecutor has 
charged that Mr. Shahrianfar and one or 
more accomplices built a massive bomb by 
packing a one-ion steel water tank with 
plastic explosive and a large amount of 
ammonium nitrate fertilizer mixed with 
diesel fuel. The bomb that devastated the- 
World Trade Center in February 1993 also 
used ammonium nitrate. 

The tank was loaded into the back of a 
six-wheel rented truck and wired to the 
truck battery via a switch on the dash- 
board. the police said 

The bomb was discovered after a man of 
Middle Eastern appearance in his 30s 
bumped into a couple of motorcycles be- 
side a department store in central Bangkok 
while driving the truck March 11. When 
the motorcycle owners demanded compen- 
sation, the man offered them a wad of 
foreign currency, which they refused An 
argument ensued and the man fled mi 
foot, abandoning the truck. 

Police officers drove the vehicle to a 
lice station, where it sax for a wed: 
ore the owner went to claim it. It was 
only then that police checked the water 
tank and found the bomb inside, along 
with the battered body ol a Thai driver for 
the rental agency. Both his arms had been 
broken, and he had apparently been stran- 
gled with a rope. 

Attorney General Opas Aranin said last 
week that witnesses recalled seeing Mr. 


Shahrianfar and the driver, Chom Hula, 
purchase the water tank that was used to 
bold the bomb. 

At the time of the accident, the truck 
appeared to be heading toward the Israeli 
Embassy about 230 meieis (250 yards) 
away. Officials said it was also possible, 
but less likely, that it was on its way to the 
US. Embassy by. a circuitous route neces- 
sitated by one-way traffic. 

Earlier that day. demonstrators had 
gathered at the Israeli Embassy to protest 
the Feb. 25 massacre by an Israeli settler of 
at least 29 Muslim worshippers at a 
mosque in the West Bank town of Hebron. 
The authorities speculated that the bomb 
may have been intended as retaliation for 
that attack. 

Deputy Foreign Minister Surin 
Pitsuwan said that as a result of the at- 
tempted truck bombing and previous 
warnings about international terrorist ac- 
tivity in Thailand, there had been closer 
consultations and information exchanges 
with foreign governments lately. 

"We are on full alert against terrorists 
and acts of terrorism,” he said. 

Iran so far has not commented on the 
case here. But on Wednesday, the state-run 
Tehran radio demanded that the U.S. sec- 
retary of state, Warren M. Christopher, 
apologize to Iran for having accused it of 
involvement the bombing last month in 

In Argentina, an investigating judge has 
issued arrest warrants for four Iranian dip- 
lomats, but the attorney general has said 
the evidence against them is insufficient. 
Iran has denied any role in the bombing, 
which remains unsolved.

BELGRADE — Yugoslavia 
blocked Bosnian Serbian refu- 
gees on Friday from voting in a 
referendum this weekend on an 
international peace plan. 

The Bosnian Serbian presss 
agency SRNA said Yugoslavia 
had refused to grant approval 
for voting on its soil. The Bosni- 
an Serbs had already an- 
nounced plans for voting in ref- 
ugee camps and hospitals 
throughout Yugoslavia. 

For most refugees, wearied 
by living far from home and 
dependent on charity, the refer- 
endum Saturday and Sunday 
now means watching from afar. 

“Whatever happens I just 
want the war to end,” said Sre- 
ten Kuljanin. a former railway- 
worker, whose five months in a 
Bosnian prison camp make him* 
seem older than his 64 years. 

Yugoslavia's decision to pre- 
vent Mr. KuJjanin and the rest 
of the quarter of a million Ser- 
bian refugees from Bosnia from 

voting was not a surprise, given 
Belgrade’s description of the 
referendum as a fraud. 

The leadership in Pale, the 
Bosnian Serbian stronghold 
outside Sarajevo, said it would 
still try to organize voting 
abroad, in communities in the 
United Stales and Canada. 

Belgrade has demanded that 
Pale accept the international 
peace plan, saying that the vote 
makes the 11 million Serbs in 
Yugoslavia hostage to the 
w hims oF the miTHo n and a half 
Serbs of Bosnia, and it has cut 

off trade, telephone and diplo- 
matic Imies. 

The referendum has been 
called by the Pale leadership to 
back its repeated rejection of 
the latest peace plan, which 
would divide Bosnia roughly in 
half between a federation of 
Muslims and Croats and their 
Serbian foes. 

The Bosnian Serbian leader, 
Radovan Karadzic, has predict- 
ed that the vote will result in 
nearly unanimous rejection of

HANOI — Prime Minister 
Tonriidn Murayama wrapped 
up the first visit to Vietnam by a 
Japanese prime minister on Fri- 
day by signaling Japan’s grow- 
ing role in regional affairs and 
its backing for HanoTs econom- 
ic reforms. 

Mr. Murayama expressed his 
backing for Vietnam's plans to 
join the Association erf South- 
east Asian Nations, amove that 
Tokyo says it believes will aid 
development and bring an end 
to HanoTs decades erf isolation. 

But he rebuffed complaints 
from Vietnamese leaders that 
Japan, Vietnam's largest trad- 
ing partner and aid donor, has 
not been an enthusiastic inves- 
tor, saying that it was up to 
Hanoi to create the right condi- 
tions for private companies. 

Mr. Murayama met Friday 
with President Le Due Anhand

secretary. Do Muoi, who he in-

Mr. Do would be the first 
serving Communist Party chief 
invited to Japan for an official 
visit as a guest of the 'govern-

The 24-hour visit to Vietnam 
focused on economic issues and 
gave Mr. Murayama a break 
from the anger about Japan’s 
wartime history, which donri- 
nated a stay in Manila, where 
demonstrators demanded com- 
pensation for women forced 
into prostitution by Imperial 

Mr. Murayama expressed his 
remorse for wartime atrocities 
and colonial rule to Prime Min- 
ister Vo Van Kiel, wbo said the 
Vietnamese “had dosed the 
door on the past” and now only 
wanted to develop better rela- 
tions with Japan. 

Aid and cultural links have 
been the center of discussions, 
with the signature of five ac- 
cords on grant aid worth more 
than $73 million and an agree- 
ment to allow Japanese peace 
corps workers to teach here. 

Japan, already Vietnam's 
largest aid donor and trading 
partner, pledged further assis- 
tance to develop infrastructure 
here, a key obstacle to invest- 
ment by foreign companies. Aid 
and loans were resumed in 1992 
after a 14-year suspension fol-

KUALA LUMPUR (AP) — The government gave 
sweeping powers on Friday to crack down on a banned L__ 
sect said its members would be caried if they were convicted 
by Islamic courts. , . e 

The action by the Home Affairs Ministry follows a ban Aug. 5 
on the group Al Arqam imposed by the state-controlled Fatwa 
Council, the supreme Islamic body in Malaysia. _ 

It is a powerful blow agamst the messianic sect, much 
authorities fear could cause disunity among Malaysia’s majority 
Malays, who axe almost aU Muslims. Al Arqam o ffic ials said that 
within hours after the action was announced, the police arrested at 
least five of its members. 

Vietnamese at Bisk in Cambodia 

PHNOM PENH (AP) — An immigration law passed unani- 
mously by the National Assembly on Friday fails to clarify the 
status of thousands of ethnic Vietnamese -residents who live in 
legal limbo. 

The new law includes provisions for the deportation and 
expulsion of aliens, which human rights groups fear would allow 
the arbitrary or mas* expulsion of long-term foreign residents, 
such as the Vietnamese. 

Several hundred thousand Vietnamese live in Cambodia. Au- 
thorities often disregard their rfflims to citizenship even when they 
have been settled here for several generations. -The Vietnamese are 
the subject of widespread suspicion and discrimination, because 
Cambodians fear that Vietnam seeks to annex their country.

For more than a century and a half, Patek Philippe has been known as 

the finest watch in the world. The reason is very simple. It is made 

differently. It is made using skills and techniques that others have lost 

or forgotten. It is made with attention to detail very few people would 

notice. It is made, we have to admit, with a total disregard for time. If 

— a particular Patek Philippe 

movement requires four 

years of continuous work to 

bring to absolute perfection, 

we will take four years. The 

result will be a watch that 

is unlike any other. A watch 


that conveys quality from 
first glance and first touch. 

A watch with a distinction: 
generation after generation 
it has been worn, loved and 
collected bv those who are 
very difficult to please; 
those who will only accept 
the best. For the day that 
you take delivery of your

acquired the best. Your watch 
will be a masterpiece, quietly 
reflecting your own values.

‘It Is My Destiny to Go Now’ 

Desperate Cubans Press Ahead With Exodus 

The Guantanamo Base 

Existing refugee camps and 
those under construction will 

j be able to hold at least 

By Maria Newman 

ft’eiv York Tina Semen 

HAVANA — Neither the fierce rains whip- 
ping the palm trees nor the deterrent measures 
taken by President Bill Clinton were going to 
keep Juan Carlos Gonzalez from making another 
attempt to take to the sea in search of a new 
future in the United States. 

In fact, thousands of people like Mr. Gonza- 
lez. fearing that this might be their last chance to 
leave the country, are speeding up their exodus, 
rather than hesitating over the uncertainty of the 

“Maybe if I wait, things will change here," he 
said. “Maybe things will improve economically 
here for people. Or maybe tomorrow they will let 
me leave on a plane. But I think this is the 
moment. It is my destiny to go now.” 

Ail along a stretch of the Cuban coast, from 
the Malecdn in central Havana to Cojimar, sev- 
■ral kilometers east, where Mr. Gonzalez was 
waiting, small clusters of Cubans could be seen 
Thursday bobbing in the water. 

Others were on the beaches, bartering for 
provisions and making final arrangements to 
leave, rather than waiting for a change in either 
the weather or politics. Bad weather was predict- 
ed through the weekend. 

Mr. Gonzalez first tried to leave a week ago, 
when he and five friends boarded a boat crafted 
of inner cubes and boards. After almost 40 hours 
at sea they were out of water and food. One 
became ill, saying he was hearing voices and 
insisting that he could walk on the water. With 
no rescue boat in sight, the dejected group decid- 
ed to turn back. 

A worker in a perfume and soap factory, Mr. 
Gonzalez earns about S3 a month and makes 
candies on the side to help his household of six, 
including his parents. As the youngest son, he 

has an obligation to try to find a different life, he 

And so on Thursday he looked again toward 
the treacherous sea. Along the beaches In Coji- 
mar, many people were aware of the dangers and 
said they had seen bodies washing ashore. But 
Mr. Gonz&lez was determined to go. 

“To me the most beautiful thing in the world is 
Cuba,” he said softly. “Bui truthfully it hasn’t 
worked. I don’t know if it is the fault of the 
United States or of those who govern us here. 
Politics don't interest me. I only want to provide 
a good life for my mother and myself.” 

Every day those who want to leave are becom- 
ing more brazen about their attempts — leaving 
in broad daylight, in view of the lovers strolling 
along Havana’s seaside boulevard, in sight of the 
foreign tourists who axe a mainstay of the 

A downpour drenched Havana by at midday 
on Thursday, whipping palm trees in high winds 
and forcing those on the beach to take cover 
under the canvas sails they had planned to use at 
sea. By late afternoon the skies were still gray, 
but the ocean looked calmer, and there was more 
talk of setting out. 

Most people on the beach said they knew they 
could end up at the Guantanamo Bay naval base 
or another military camp. They said they knew it 
might be weeks or months before their applica- 
tions for asylum would be granted. But for most 
it was almost an irrelevant point. 

“The most frightening choice would be to stay 
here,” said a man who would only identify him- 
self as Rodolfo. “You don’t know hell until 
you’ve lived here.” 

He said that this month the government had 
provided each member of his family with a 
quarter-pound of pork. “It had been years since 
we bad seen pork," he said. His family subsists 
on rice and soy beans, usually cooked without oil 
because that, too, is scarce. 

60.000 refugees. As of 
Wednesday morning, 
about 17,000 refugees

JERUSALEM — Yehosho- 
fat Harkabi, a former army in- 
telligence chief and the first 
leading figure to emphasize Is- 
rael’s need to solve the Palestin- 
ian problem, died Friday. He 
was 72 years old. 

A-- an acclaimed authority on 
Middle Eastern affairs and a 
professor of international rela- 
tions at Hebrew University in 
Jerusalem, Mr. Harkabi was an 
adviser to several Israeli lead- 
ers, including Prime Ministers 
Yitzhak Rabin and Menachem 

each other and began the pro- 
cess that led to Palestinian au- 
tonomy in the Gaza Strip and 
Jericho in May. 

After the 1967 Middle East 
war, the hawkish academic 
joined other Israeli military an- 
alysts in playing down the need 
to negotiate with the Arabs, ar- 
guing that the war victory had 
proved time was on Israel’s 
side. In 1969. he was the first to 
translate the Palestine National 
Covenant, which called for the 
destruction of Israel and the ex- 
pulsion of most Jews. 

A few years later, in the wake 
of the 1973 Mideas! War, Mr. 
Harkabi reversed direction and 
became one of the first Israelis 
to call for negotiating with the 
Palestine Liberation Organiza- 
tion. His writings were de- 
scribed as prophetic by govern- 
ment minist ers in 1993, when

at all to make about modem birth-control 
methods is.itsrikf- a signpost of substantial 
progress, these specialists say. 

Two decades ago, many African govern- 

ments and intellectuals described family- 
planning programs as a racist conspiracy 
' by wealthy, mainly white governments in 
the industrialized world to bold down the 
number of people in the Third World. 

No more. Confronted with swelling 
populations of young urban poor, facing 
widespread environmental degradation 
and shrinking per-capita incomes, most 
African governments have changed their 
tune. Some previously hostile to family 
- planning are neutral today. Other gpvem- 
, ^merits that had .been neutral are now ac- 
tively promoting birth control and smaller 
famines, and they are seeing positive re- 

The long, angry debate about popula- 
tion management in Africa “is dying down 
for economic reasons,” said Pamela On- 
yango. a Kenyan family planning and 
health activist. “Land is getting scarce. 
Children are becoming too expensive to 

As governments in both Africa and the 
West prepare for the landmark Interna- 
tional Conference on Population and De- 
velopment, to be held in Cairo in Septem- 
ber, “not very many people have realized 
how far we’ve come in the family planning 
area," said Sally Shelton, who oversees the 
office of population, health and nutrition 
at the U5. Agency for International De- 

The agency will spend about $500 mil- 
lion on population programs this year. 
“We’re going into Cairo with a fairly 
broad-based consensus,” she said. “A hun- 
dred percent? No. But a substantial con- 
sensus? Yes." 

The consensus is buttressed by recently 
published evidence suggesting that in at 
tost some African countries — Kenya, 
Zimbabwe, Botswana and Ghana most 
prominently — the beginnings of what 
specialists rail a “demographic transition,” 
or a long-term dechne in population 
growth rates, may be under way. 

Such changes reflect a recent, global 
drift in evidence and theory about manag- 
ing population growth. Earlier, demogra- 
phers assumed mat <mly broad prosperity 
and modernization could meaningfully 
slow population growth, as has occurred in 
Europe during the two centuries since the 
beginning of the Industrial Revolution. 

But recent surveys in poor, politically 
unstab le countries nke Bangladesh, which 
has an aggressive family-planning pro- 

gram, have turned up compelling evidence 
“that birth rates in the developing world 
have fallen even in the absence of im- 
proved living conditions, with remarkable 
speed,” the demographers Bryant Robey, 
Shea O. Rulsiein and Leo Morris reported 
in a recent study publuhed by the maga- 
zine Scientific American magazine. 

Even more recent surveys in Ghana 
make the same point. 

These findings are generating 3 re- 
newed, more technical debale, leading into 
the Cairo conference, about how- best to 
slow Africa's population growth. 

To what degree should resources be used 
to supply birth-control devices to meet 
Africa's huge unmet demand for family 
planning, and to what degree should 
spending and programs concentrate on so- 
cial causes of high birth rates, such as low 
literacy rates among women, poverty and 
the lade of control many African women 
have over ibeir lives? 

Many specialists agree that no matter 
which priority is emphasized, the key is to 
get the program working properly at the 
local lewd. That may require the political 
will, of the host government, still not a 
given in many parts of Africa. 

Such partnerships are much more easily 
desired than achieved, however. Burkina 
Faso offers a dismaying case in point. 

Often, just reaching the rural population 
in Africa is difficult. Transportation is 
poor. Many doctors demand that a woman 
undergo a complete physical exam before 
she receives contraceptives, yet in northern 
Burkina Faso at least 80 percent of the 
pramlatioQ lives up to 13 kilometers (8 
miles) from a clinic. Few people own cars, 
and even bicycles are hard to come by in 
the far reaches of the country. 

Cultural traditions can be just as daunt- 
ing. In many villages, it is taboo For a 
pregnant woman to utter the Dame of the 
child’s father. People rarely discuss sex 
openly. Islam, which under some interpre- 
tations can be hostile to birth control, is 
another heavy local influence. 

Moreover, many women reject birth 
control out of fear that their husbands will 
simply take another wife. 

When women want to terminate un- 
wanted pregnancies, there is often little 
choice outer than seeking abortions in un- 
safe and unsanitary illegal clinics. The re- 
sult: Africa has the highest rate of deaths 
caused by unsafe abortions in the world.

Talk about political baggage:

Tour Bus Attack 
In Egypt Kills 
Spanish Teenager 

The Associated Pros 

CAIRO — A suspected Mus- 
lim radical opened fire on a 
tourist bus in southern Egypt 
on Friday, killing a Spanish 
teenager and wounding three 
other people, police sources 

The attack comes little more 
than a week before a United 
Nations conference on popula- 
tion that is expected to bring 
about 15,000 visitors to Egypt. 
Government officials have said 
they hoped the conference 
would help rebuild the coun- 
try’s tourist business. 

The violence was the first in 
three months aimed at tourists, 
who have been targeted by radi- 
cals as part of their campaign to 
overthrow the secular govern- 
ment and install Islamic rule. 

The bus attack occurred near 
Nag Hamadi, about 460 kilo- 
meters south of Cairo. Police 
sources said a 13-year-old 
Spaniard was lolled and his fa- 
ther, mother and an Egyptian 
tourist guide were wounded. 

It was believed that a lone 
gunman was involved in the at- 
tack on the bus carrying 11 
Spanish tourists, the sources 
said. The tourists had been to 
the ancient temple at Dendara 
and were en route to see other 
monuments, they said.

The last few years have 
been rough on South African 
arms- makers, a tight-knit net- 
work of contractors public 
and private, with govern- 
ment-owned Armscor at its 

Armscor manufactures 
nothing itself — not since its 
production arm was spun off 
two years ago as a separate, 
state-owned conglomerate 
called Denel, which sells ev- 
erything from bullets and gre- 
nades to tank turrets and 
combat helicopters. 

Overseen by a board ap- 
pointed by the defense minis- 
ter, Armscor now is an acqui- 

Veterans of the

sitions company, h purchases 
weapons for the army and po- 
lice, cultivates the domestic 
industry with planning and 
technical advice, and licenses 
all arms exports. No legal 
arms trade lakes place with- 
out its involvement. 

Since South Africa with- 
drew its army in 198S from 
Angola, where it was fighting 
to overthrow the Cuban- 
backed government, Pretoria 
has cut its weapons spending 
more than 40 percent. 

The industry’s first solu- 
tion has been to turn to for- 
eign customers. 

Despite United Nations 
sanctions against the apart- 
heid government. South Afri- 
ca built a formidable weap- 
ons industry that is the 
country’s largest exporter of 
manufactured goods, with 
more than 5150 million in 
foreign sales last year. 

The largest customers are 
Middle Eastern countries like 
Oman and Dubai, which buy 
artillery and armored vehi- 
cles. South Africa also sells 

technology to the Far East, 
and s mall anas to South 

With sanctions lifted last 
May, said Tielman de Waal, 
the executive general manag- 
er of Armscor. South African 

exports, now about half a per- 
cent of the world market, are 
expected to double by the end 
of the year, then quickly dou- 
ble again. 

The most rapid growth is 
expected to be in southern 
Africa, where Armscor will 
arrange the servicing and re- 
placement of old weapons 
supplied by the Soviet bloc. 

“These are our natural 
markets, because we’re dose 
by and we have a pretty good 
reputation for quality,” said 
Brigadier William Suss, se- 
nior researcher at the Insti- 
tute for Defense Policy, a Jo- 
hannesburg research 
organization. “If you were on 

you I areeasiy convincedhow 
effective these weapons are.” 

Although industry officials 
say they have little hope of 
capturing much business in 
the advanced and well-pro- 
tected Western markets. 
South African weapons are 
enjoying a new-found re- 
spectability there, too. 

One major impediment is 
the United States, which has 
retained a ban on importing 
and exporting South African 
weapons because Armscor 
and affiliated companies are 
under indictment for smug- 
gling out American compo- 
nents to circumvent sanctions 
against South Africa and 

Armscor has offered to pay 
large fines to dispose of the 
case, and industry officials 
say the reason Americans 
have refused a deal is that 
they want to protea Ameri- 
can weapons- makers from 
new competition. 

Another front in the indus- 
try’s survival plan is Mr, 
Mandela’s war against pover- 

Armscor officials said they 
had approached government 
minis tries and provincial offi- 
cials proposing that Armscor 
become an official acquisi- 
tion agent for purchases of 
medical equipment, vehicles, 
water purification systems, 
electrical generators and oth- 
er goods.

It’s Time to Talk to Castro 

Well, why not open broad negotiations 
with the Castro regime? 

The Clinton administration was quick 
to rebuff Fidd Castro’s proposal of multi* 
issue talks on Thursday. Washington an- 
ticipated a propaganda session where Ha- 
vana would offer to keep its unhappy 
citizens from leaving only if the United 
Stales promised to ease its economic em- 
bargo, halt anti-Castro radio broadcasts, 
ana maybe throw in the return of the 
Guantanamo Bay Naval Base to Cuba. 

The administration says immigration 
is the only issue it will talk abouL Wash- 
ington should respond more creatively, 
insisting that any discussion of issues 
between the two countries must also in- 
clude democracy and h uman rights. 

Fidel Castro has had his dictatorial 
way with Cuba for the past 35 years, 
brooking no dissent, turning neighbors 
into spies, and driving many of his own 
people to risk their lives to get away. 
He blames the United Slates for troubles 
of his own making and would sooner see 
Cuba's economy collapse than make con- 
cessions to foreign demands. 

If that kind of behavior disqualified a 
regime from negotiations, Washington 
would never have been able to reach out 
to Mao's China or Kim II Sung's North 
Korea. Neither could it have talked with 
Syria about Middle East peace tenns, 
Bosnian Serbs about cease-fires or Haiti’s 
generals about the return of President 
Jean-Bertrand Aristide. 

In diplomacy, jt is often more impor- 
tant for governments to talk to their ene- 
mies than to their friends. That is bow 
Israel reached agreement with the Pales- 
tine liberation Organization. But for 
most of the past three and a half decades, 
Washington has never seriously consid- 
ered talking to Havana. 

ft ought to consider such talks now. The 

Castro regime's weakness makes this an 
especially promising moment to negotiate, 
if Washington plays its hand effectively. 

Once a genuine menace as a Soviet 
outpost, Cuba has power to influence 
American politics that has outlasted the 
Cold War. Hundreds of thousands of 
Cuban 6migrts are now U.S. voters and 
their most vocal leaders have made any 
dialogue with Cuba a domestic political 
taboo. The administration is understand- 
ably reluctant to challenge that taboo. 

Yet its attempt to improvise unilateral 
responses to the refugee challenge is al- 
ready damaging its own credibility and 
jeopardizing broader American interests. 

For what good cause is the administra- 
tion preventing Cuban-Americans from 
helping their families stretch meager bud- 
gets with dollar payments? Has it not yet 
learned the importance of setting, and 
holding to, its foreign policy priorities? 

The Cu ban- American hard-liners from 
whom the administration is talcing its cues 
want to escalate internal tensions in Cuba 
rapidly in order to force an explosion, and 
perhaps a U.S. intervention, that would 
bring the Castro regime down in flames. 
The administration is not prepared to go 
that far, nor is it dear that such an Arma- 
geddon scenario would serve Cuban de- 
mocracy or America's best interests. Many 

Cuban-Americans also shy away from a 
confrontation that could turn thdr rela- 
tives into sacrificial victims. 

By agreeing to wide-ranging talks with 
Cuba now, and insisting on the broadest 
possible agenda, the United States may 
find it has some bargaining power to help 
Cubans struggling for democratic 
change. Hie alternative is to punish Cu- 
bans and embarrass the United States. 
That would not hurt Fidel Castro nearly 
so much as it would damage Bill Clinton. 


The Crime-Bill Sausage 

It has been said that the two things that 
should never be watched are the making 
of mneagw and the making of le gislatio n . 
After watching the crime bill maneuver- 
ing in the U.S. Congress for the past few 
weeks, we are prep a red to say that this 
adage is grossly unfair to sausage makers. 

The Senate on Thursday finally moved 
to end the effort of some Republicans to 
deadlock action on a bill that has been 
discussed, amended, debated, amended, 
blocked, amended and finally passed by 
the House only to face more turmoil in 
the Senate. The Republicans opposed to 
the bin were hoping to use Senate rules, 
as they often have this year, to block 
action favored by a substantial majority. 
Deserving of particular praise are those 
Republican senators who broke with 
their party to shut down the absurd and 
obstructionist game-playing. 

None of this is to say that the bill itself 
is so great: It is not It includes a slew of 
new death penalties that have nothing to 
do with stopping the sorts of street crime 
that Americans are rightly worried about 
and some patronage junk and plenty of 
posturing. But it does include a very im- 
portant measure, the ban on assault 
weapons, which one can only hope will be 
a step toward a more rational national 
policy on gun control. The bill also in- 
cludes money for more police on the 

street which is good, and help for states 
on prison construction, and some preven- 
tion programs that cannot be dismissed 
entirely as “pork,” although there is some 
of that left m this sausage. 

S u pporters of the bill have made exces- 
sive rfaims on its behalf. But the contin- 
ued delay being pushed by some Republi- 
cans was endangering the bill's better 
provisions, particularly the ban on 
assault weapons. 

A lot of partisanship was inevitable 
this year, given Republican hopes of 
gaining significant ground in this fall's 
elections (and Democratic worries that 
they might). It is also true that Mr. Clin- 
ton has missed opportunities to reach out 
to potential Republican allies and that 
many Republicans in Congress, especial- 
ly in the House, resent having been frozen 
out on so many issues. 

Nonetheless, the partisan display on 
the crime bill was ridiculous. In the Sen- 
ate, it appeared that the Republican lead- 
er, Bob Dole, who can be an effective and 
fair-minded legislator, yielded strategic 
control to Senator Phfl Gramm of Texas, 
his potential 1996 presidential rival, who 

E refers to bum the house down. In this 
aide, the Republicans have damaged 
Mr. Clinton and the Democrats but also, 
we expect, themselves. 


Nasty, Sloppy, Ineffective 

The U.S. Congress heads out on vaca- 
tion not having passed a health care bill, 
but that is hardly all. It has not passed 
any other significant legislation this year. 
It will have another month, an extremely 
crowded one, when it comes back after 
labor Day, and the final weeks tend to 
be die busy ones in any Congress. A lot of 
business may be transacted then. So far, 
however, the record is as dismal as in any 
legislative year in recent memory. It is 
back to gridlock, or so it has seemed 
lately — but of a nasty, internecine kind 
that makes the Bush administration seem 

like a checkers game by comparison. 

The president and this same Congress 
did pretty well last year, their first in 
office. They moved to reduce the deficit, 
restore the tax code's cutting edge, revive 
and expand assorted programs for the 
poor, restructure college student aid, 
adopt a national service program, pass 
the family leave bill and approve the 
North American Free Trade Agreement. 
Not bad. But this year? 

The health care bill is stuck, of course, 
but health care is hard. Campaign fi- 
nance reform is also stuck, and it ought to 
be easy. Congress passed the present bill 

This Congress is supposed to approve 
the new international trade agreement It 
has not done so. Who knows if there will 
be time? A bill to modernize federal regu- 
lation of the telecommunications indus- 
try is in an uncertain state. Welfare re- 
form has been put off. A housing bill may 
or may not pass; no matter that it would 
make overdue improvements in aspects 
of public housing policy that members of 
both parties constantly deplore. A bill to 
reauthorize the main forms of federal aid 
to education — surely a Democratic Con- 
gress can do that — has only recently 
been sent to conference. 

A proposed strengthening of the Clean 
Water Act has been shelved; so also a 
proposal to straighten out the regulation 
of pesticides, a chronic mess. A restruc- 
turing of the inaptly named Superfond 
program for toxic-waste cleanup may or 

may not pass; it has been dragged out 
until there is barely time. The safe driok-

tions bills have been signed. Sure, legisla- 
tors will complete work cm these and no 
doubt some of the rest before they are

iting process it is. Both parties bear then-

Clinton has taken the initiative in 
addressing that issue and those of 
NATO structure and the alliance 
role in and beyond Europe. 

At the NATO summit meeting 
in January, Mr. Clinton noted that 
the affiance's role is critical in the 
task of extending security to the 
new democracies. With U.S. lead- 
ership, NATO moved to do so 
through the Partnership for Peace, 
winch gives members and poten- 
tial members the chance for practi- 
cal experience in military coopera- 
tion without waiting to resolve the 
debate over NATO expansion. 

It tailors the relationship with 
NATO to the condition of each of 
the partners, thus avoiding the 
premature drawing of new lines. 
Russia is a partner, though it wiQ 
not, in my view, ever become a 
NATO member. The admmistra-

by Russian knowledge mat it 
would result in anew Cold War m 
circumstances far less favorable 
to Russia than prevailed in the 
struggle that had such catastroph- 
ic consequences for h. 

But more insurance is needed, 
and it is provided by the U.S. 
commitment to European securi- 
ty, evidenced by the continuance 
of a strong U.S mffitary presaice 
in Europe and reaffirmed in two 
Clinton budgets. The initiative, 
and considerable flexibility is pro- 
vided by the Partnership f° r 
Peace; Mr. Clinton’s $100 nritfion 
for partnership initiatives is a sig- 
nificant down payment of re- 
sources to support the cooperation 
of NATO and partner militaries. 

Both initiative and insurance 
are evidenced by U.S. coopera- 
tion in strengthening the Europe- 
an pillar of NATO in the fonn of 

not others, and NATO’s relations 
with nonmember partners 
through and beyond a transition 
will need to be worked out in the

will include the economic rela-

None of us can be certain 
where Russia’s evolution will take 
it. Some expect it to become a 
large but peaceful member of a 
cooperative international security 
order, others, a resurgent and ex- 
pansionist state seeking to domi- 
nate its neighbors. The principle 
the Atlantic alliance — and the 
United States, as its leader — 
should follow is to be prepared 
politically and militarily to ap- 
pose anc deter an expansionist

avoiding actions that unduly in- 
crease the likelihood that it wQL 

Most Central European and 
former Soviet nations also face 
alternative paths: toward West- 
ern values and practices or to- 
ward authoritarianism, statism 
and poisonous nationalism. 

The balance for U.S. policy is 
not easy to strike, especially in 
dealing with the Central European 
states, whose history and geogra- 
phy — between Germany and 
Russia — do not, to put it mfldly, 
make them naturally secure. The 
Bush administration, which 
should be commended for its han- 
dling of the events of the reunifica- 
tion of Germany and the collapse 
of the Soviet Union, never faced 
up to the issue of post-Cold War 
security relations east of the new 
German border. President Bin 

tion has rightly been ambiguous 
on that question. But as Mr. Clin- 
ton stressed in Warsaw, Russia 
will not have the right to veto, 
comp r o mise or threaten the Inte- 
gra turn of any of the new democ- 
racies into Western institutions. 

Speaking to the Polish Parlia- 
ment on July 7, Mr. Clinton ex- 
plicitly rejected a “gray zone" of 
uncertain security for Central Eu- 
rope’s new democracies and af- 
firmed that NATO’s expansion 
was no longer a question of wheth- 
er but of when and how. 

Those who argue that the when 
and bow are full and iTwwwtiate 
NATO membership should say 
for which nations those condi- 
tions apply. And they should ex- 
plain their confidence that the 
U.S. Congress, tire parliaments of 
the 15 other NATO members and 
the NATO publics are prepared 
to extend credible guarantees to 
the newcomers that an attack on 
one is an attack on att. 

They should ai«n explain what 
effect the drawing of such a line 
would have on the relationships 
between Russia and the other na- 
tions on the far side of that line. 

NATO membership should not 
be automatic for any country.

Cuba: Clinton Can Got Out of the Hole 

By Pamela S. Falk 

N EW YORK — President Bill Clinton has 
backed himself into a comer. As thousands flee 

policy are appropriate criteria. 
How and when to expand, how to 

_L v backed hims elf into a comer. As thousands flee 
Cuba on leaky rafts, the president has just three 
choices, all unpalatable. 

He can abandon his new detention policy and 
admit arriving refugees. He can lift the embargo 
against Cuba, easing some of the island’s economic 
woes. Or be can escalate tire raft wars with a full 
naval blockade erf commercial shipping to Cuba. 

Of these choices, only the first makes sense. 
Lifting the embargo now would enrage Cuban ex- 
iles in Florida and elsewhere, because it would 
strengthen Rdd Castro’s hand. A naval blockade 
would enrage U.S. allies that trade with Cuba. 

instead, the president should fortJirightly re- 
nounce the detention policy; stem the tide of refu- 
gees by reinstating the payments ti*** exile families 
m the United States can make to their relatives in 
Cuba, and ease tire burden on Florida and other 
states by picking up resettlement costs. 

The detention policy has not decreased tire flow 
of refugees, nor is three any sign that it wilL The 
pediey is cnid to refugees and their families. It holds 
no prospect of creating a tiadreboxin Cuba, speed- 
ing Mr. Castro's departure from power. Aud it 
burdens U.S. taxpayers. 

Nor can the United States have much hope of 
returning the refugees to Cuba. As a Cuban official 
told me recently, Mr. Castro is not likely to take 
back a angle Cuban who left. 

To dig hims elf out of this bole, Mr. Clinton needs 

to start tfiitiVfng of this crisis as a foreign policy 
issue, not a domestic political one. When he does, 
several thin g* will become dear. , 

First, tire more in formation that is allowed mto 
and out of Cuba, the better. U.S- news organizations 
would like to open bureaus in Havana, and the 
necessary laws have been passed by Congress; the 
approval process should be expedited. . 

tire United States needs to begin talking 
Mr Castro. If it does not. things could 

again with Mr. Castro. If it does not, things could 
get worse in a hurry, as they did in 1980. 

Even with the trade embargo still in place, it 
would be strange, if the Clinton administration 
could not even get to the level of negotiations the 
Reagan admmistratian achieved — talks that led to 
agreements on immigration and nuclear energy and 
cooperation on drug traf fic ki n g. 

Third, the United States should find ways to 
encourage Mr. Castro to step aside peacefully. But 
he needs to be coaxed, not pushed, or a new trader 
could ^mpay from the Cuban miHtaiy who is as 
oppressive politically as Mr. Castro is. 

To encourage a transition to responsible leader- 1 
< hip aHmfni.trir arirm should quietly pursue PCgiQti- 
ations with Cuban leaders as well as dissidents. 

Mr. Clinton must lode beyond this crisis, focus 1 
on the long-range foreign policy issues and let 
tire negotiations-begin.

In the Population Debate, Think About Life and Not Just Birth 

B IN1 CALAF, Minorca, Spain 
Prosoects for the United Nati 

U Prospects for the United Nations 
population conference in Cairo next 
month have dramatically chang ed from 
a useful global assessment of how to 
match demography and resources to an 
ominous donnybrook. 

This holds threats of ideological, polit- 
ical and social disaster on a world scale: 
The issues, and the facts, have been va- 
porized by emotional steam released not 
only by traditionalists insisting on bibli- 
cal strictures to “multiply" but by mili- 
tants insisting on women's right to deride 
alone. They have lost right of the point, 
which is improving humanity’s healthy 
survival chances. 

The seemingly tactical alliance be- 
tween the Vatican, Islamic fanaticism 
Tehran-style and Arab nationalism Trip- 

By Flora Lewis 

oli-style is shocking. It suggests an un- 
principled crosadc for a religious dictate 

that discards all appeals to tolerance 
and moderation. 

In the Pope's view, it probably goes 
deeper. Since the collapse of communism, 
to which he rightly feels he made a large 
contribution. Pope John Paul II has beat 
seeking to revive a universal “spiritual 
message" to CD the vacuum. 

It does have affinities with the anti- 
bourgeois, anti-secular, anti-heartless- 
capitalism, traditional communal pre- 
cepts of fundamentalism. At one of his 
political-intellectual seminars at Caste! 
Gandolfo, the Pope answered a question 
about his hostility to the Cairo confer- 
ence tersely. “The question of life is a 
fundamental right," is all he would say. 

Nobody is really challenging that. But 
the agenda has been turned into a battle- 
ground by two sets of militants, leaving 
behind tire real issues of population. 

“It’s fascism with a feminist face." an 
agitator for the American right-winger 
Lyndon LaRouche shouted at Nawfis 
Sadik, president of the UN Population 
Council, at a meeting in Stockholm. 
“What?" she said with astonishment, 
“You don't want to empower women?” 

There is a farcical ride. But it is this 
militam feminist attempt to tom popula- 
tion into a power question instead of a 
survival queriion and a development ques- 
tion that underlies the trouble. 

At the New York preparatory meeting 
last spring, women’s organizations suc- 

ceeded in recasting the agenda to focus 
on their demands. They are reaping a 
backlash. “Empowerment,” a modem 
political go-go word, provokes resis- 
tance. To many societies, the vague, ap- 
parently unlimited goal of turning power 
over to women is unsettling. 

There is overwhelming evidence that 
where gills have access to education, 
which in turn brings health information 
and employment opportunity, fertility; 
rates decline to what the society can man- 
age. It isn’t a matter of total numbers. It is

makes possible escape from poverty, op- 
portunity for education, for baric health 
care, and, yes, for reproduction in a way 
that does not just condemn new billions 
to the same old trap. Malting that possi- 
ble is the real population issue, not how 
many births are allowed. 

What is new in human history is pre- 
casely that human ingenuity has reached 
tire point where it can create far more lives 
than it has found the way to sustain in 
decency. The capacity of women to bear 
children has not increased. If the .world

and is tearing it with 6 trillion, it is because

The United Nations Should Prepare for the Borderless World Ahead 

T OKYO — The United Na- 
tions may have suffered 

JL tions may have suffered 
from low expectations during 
the Cold War. but today the 
world expects much more of it. 
The end of the Cold War, I be- 
lieve, will transform or even end 
the traditional nation-state sys- 
tem. To adapt, the United Na- 
tions wifi have to implement a 
number of measures. 

The new world order that will 
emerge as the nation-state loses 
its relevance in the next century 
will be more highly integrated — 
economically, politically and cul- 
turally. There be movement, as 
some have predicted, toward a 
single “borderless economy.” 
And the trend toward political 
integration will continue, as sug- 
gested by the proliferation erf suc- 
cessful regional organizations like 
the European Union. 

Historically, there have been 
two prerequisites for integration 
among nations. The first is a 
sharing of values; the second is 
the existence of a common task. 
Both requirements will be satis- 
fied in the world of the 2lst cen- 
tury. Today, most nations are 
bound together by a common 
desire for pluralistic democracy, 
and by the need for international 
cooperation to tackle such glob- 
al problems as population 
growth, nuclear proliferation, 
environmental degradation, 
drug-related social problems 
and regional conflicts. 

Only the United Nations can 
provide a forum for shaping such 
a global transformation. But if it 
is to deal adequately with this 
new situation, the UN itself will 
first require reform. It must be 
given the power to address glob- 
al threats effectively and it must 
become a forum where the 
shared ideal of pluralistic de- 
mocracy is promoted. 

How can we do this? How are 
we to make the UN more effec-

five in the transformation away 
from the nation-state system? 

First, the UN should support 
the establishment of democratic 
governments by providing greater 
assistance for tne holding of free 
and fair elections. Toward this 
end. the Electoral Assistance 
Unit of the UN Secretariat 
should be reinforced. 

Second, UN peacekeeping op- 
erations are playing an ever 
more important role and need 

Only the UN can provide 
a forum for shaping the 
global transformation 
ahead. But first it must 
res hope itself ; reforms 
are badly needed. 

proper support to continue m 
that direction. The successful 

elections in Namibia, Cambodia 
and El Salvador testify to the 
essential role of the peacekeep- 
ers’ election-monitoring and ob- 
servation units. Civilian partici- 
pation is becoming increasingly 
important. I therefore suggest 
the endowment of a memorial 
medal honoring the contribu- 
tions of civilian participants. 

Third, the long-awaited post of 
UN High Commissioner for Hu- 
man Rights needs adequate sup- 
port and resources. The protec- 
tion of human rights can be 
assured only if a multitude of 
conditions prevails. These in- 
clude political stability, estab- 
lished legal procedures, an ample 
number of jurists, wide public 
awareness of the importance of 
human rights, economic develop- 
ment and a rise in living stan- 

dards. These conditions demand 
considerable effort over time. 

To facilitate change, the UN 
must offer advisory activities to 
establish due process of la w. Pub- 
lic information program s are im- 
portant. A strong, permanent sec- 
retariat will be needed; dose 
coordination among the relevant 
UN agencies is crudaL I would 
propose that the UN Center for 
Human Rights be given enhanced 
resources md that the coordinat- 
ing role of the High Commission- 
er for Human Rights within the 
UN system be consolidated. 

Several reforms are needed in 
the United Nations. The Security 
Council should be a focus of these 
reforms, though remedies are also 
needed in the economic and cul- 
tural fields. The dramatic increase 
in the number of member-states

effectively address the complex 
global problems of today’s world.

The new world order will see a

peoples of the wodd for pluralis-

trend. In the mean while, cadi 
state must attain democracy in its 
own way. The worldwide move-

lbe newer global powers should 
be encouraged to take a more ac- 
tive rote in efforts to ensure world 
peace and stability. Japan has the 
will and capacity to do so. 

The Security Council should 
also better represent the interna- 
tional community by in creasin g 
the number of nonpennanent 
members and redressing the im- 
balancein the geographical distri- 
bution of nonpennanent seats. 

Unesco, which for almost a 
half century has sought to con- 
tribute to peace through its ef- 
forts in educational scientific 
and cultural fields, must now 
tackle new issues. These include 
disputes between different ethnic 
and cultural groups- 

BAYREUTH — 'The truth is 
that people will continue logo to

ligence of the highest order, but 
she is only one woman, and as it 
is she who m an a ge s everything,

S POLETO/ltaly — bo-

of this exjhihWMi of 
works by EraBo^Anxame

sculpture that doranates the

It has remained rooted to its 
pedestal outside the Museum of 

Bourddlefs hometown. 

Boufdefle Worked there as an 
assistant cafthtetropfeer to his 
father until 1676, when he ob- 
tained a grknt to study at the 
Ecole tea Beanx-Arts in Tou- 
kai5e, - and later in Pans. In 
1895, when the city of Mooum-

After winning the conmtifv

of. much of Bourdelle’s later 
work. This search for stylistic 
economy was certainly inspired 
by two great periods of the 
Western artistic heritage: Hel- 
lenic archaism (Cl&opatre, the 
artist's wife, came from Athens, 
and 'certainly stimulated her 
husband’s interest in Greek my- 
thology); and Romanesque ar- 
chitecture and sculpture, partic- 
Hlariy of medieval France. 

“Those who don’t like mv 
work, and there are plenty

is known after the village where he was 
bom in 1494. Just published in New 
York, “Pontormo Paintings and Fres- 
coes,” with a short text. by Salvatore S. 
Nigro, illustrates Phase Two in the re- 
construction process. 

After the groundwork laid by cata- 
logues raisotmfcs — K-W. Forster’s ex- 
haustive “Pontormo: Monograph with a 
Critical Catalogue” was published long 
ago in Germany (and in German exclu- 
sively) — here is the essential Pontormo, 
cut down to 40 paintings and eight fres- 
coes. Trust Harry N. Abrams, toe pub- 
lishers, for fine color. The volume is 
beautiful, the artist admirable. The art- 
ist? Even pared down to a minimum, the 
oeuvre is not quite so solidly entrenched 
as the presentation may suggest There 
are no signatures. In Renaissance Italy, 
established painters had studios in 
winch the pupil imitated the master as a 
matter of course. And the master was 
not above adding his contribution to an 
esteemed disciple’s effort 

Bedeviling the problem, contempo- 
rary accounts documenting the works 
considered “safe” can be infuriatingly 
ambiguous. Take the great Giorgio Va- 
sari, a painter in his own right, a greater 
draftsman, a fabulous collector of draw- 
ings and, by general consent, the first an 
historian. In his “Lives of the Most 
Excellent Painters, Sculptors and Archi- 
tects,” Vasari makes several references 
to the frescoes in the Ludovico Caponi 
chapel, winch forms part of the Church 
of Santa Fetidti, in Florence. When 
dealing with Pontormo’s life, the great 
man says he painted God the Father 
surrounded by Patriarchs. The artist 
also did three of the four medallions 
enclosing the Evangelists. The fourth. 
Vasari explains, was the work of Agnolo 
Bronzino, one of Pontormo's pupils. Va- 
sari, alas, is not too worried about con- 
sistency. In the chapter on Bronzino, the 

Pontormo 's “Saint Veronica " ( detail), in the Pope chapel of Santa Maria Novella church in Florence . 

painter-historian credits the latter with 
painting two Evangelists, not one. 

Is this why Saint John and Saint Luke 
differ somewhat in spirit? Saint John 
leans forward, in a rolling movement. 
The wind runs through the drape float- 
ing over his shoulder. If we know any- 
thing about Pontormo, this is the real 
article. Luke, leaning on a tablet, pen in 
hand, looks different, more compact, 
more tense. Pan of the head of a bull is 
seen behind his shoulder, peering at the 
viewer with the one eye that is visible. It 
gives the painting a strange, slightly dis- 
turbing feel Perhaps Pontormo owes 
this to Dflrcr, whom he admired. He 
probably did paint Luke. Bat we may 
never be entirety sure. 

A glance at the biographical data 
makes it plain Pontormo underwent 
many strains of influence. He was the 
son of a Florentine painter who had 
worked in the studio of Domenico Ghir- 
landaio and that surety left a stamp cm 
young Jacopo, if only through early ex- 
posure to tbe pictures. 

Pontormo was 14 when be was taken 
to Florence to visit the studios of Leo- 
nardo, Piero di Cosimo and Mariotto 
AlbertineUi. Mariotto took the teenager 
under his wing. If Vasari’s word is to be 
trusted, the first painting by Jacopo was 
a small Annunciation done for a Mead 
who died before it was finished. Jacopo 
kept it with him and “Mariotto. who was 
very proud of it, showed it off as some- 
thing very rare to whoever entered his 
workshop.” Raphael Vasari goes on, 
saw it, and was amazed at its quality. 

Tbe next port of call for Jacopo "was 
the studio of Andrea del Sarto. Accom- 
panying his master and the painter 
Rosso FiorenLino, Jacopo went to 

Rome. There be looked at Hdlenistic 
sculpture, which was to leave an indeli- 
ble impression on his young mind. It is 
probably to this that his love of flutter- 
ing drapes can be traced. 

Shortly after, Andrea del Sarto invit- 
ed him to take part in the execution of 
the preddla for an “Annunciation" in a 
Florentine church. He and Rosso 
worked together, and Andrea helped 
Pontormo complete his work. No won- 
der, therefore, if there is an Andrea del 
Sarto touch to the canopy in a fresco 
that Pontormo painted later in the 
church of Santa Maria Novella. 

In another work, the marvelous fresco 
painted by Pontormo in the church of 
San Usama Annunziala in Florence in 
the years 1514 to 1516, a multiple legacy 
can be detected. Leonardo perhaps, An- 
drea del Sarto certainly, Raphael prob- 
ably, in some of the faces. In his 30s the 
artist finally developed a curious style 
that singles him out at first glance. Tall 
figures hardly seem to touch ground, 
when shown full length. They move ef- 
fortlessly as if wafted by the wind blow- 
ing through their drapes. The faces gaze 
in a kind of trance at unseen sights 
located behind the viewer, their eye- 
brows lightly raised in dreamy, yet anx- 
ious surprise. 

This creates an astonishing kinshi p 
between deeply different subjects. In 
one of Pontormo’s early masterpieces, a 
“Visitation” now in the parish church of 
San Michele, in Carmignano, it is in- 
stantly apparent. That same unreal 
lightness, that slight twirl to the body 
moving with a ballet-like bounce, can 
also be recognized in the portrait of a 
halberdier, one of (he most beautiful in 
the Mannerist school 

His identity remains elusive. When it 
set a world record for any Old Master 
sold at auction on May 31, 1989, at 
Christie’s and was acquired by the J. 
Paul Getty Museum for S35.2 million, it 
was presented as tbe portrait of Cosimo 
de’ Media. Herbert Keutner, the Ger- 
man art historian, first expressed that 
opinion a long time ago. convinced that 
he recognized the features of the Prince 
known from other works. But we hear 
from Vasari that during the siege of 
Florence, from 1529 to 1530, Pontormo 
“did a portrait of Francesco Guardi in 
the garb of a soldier ” That description 
surdy matches the halberdier. The game 
r emains open — perhaps Vasari referred 
to another picture now lost, or perhaps 
he got this one wrong too. 

W E have yet to recognize that 
the narrowing focus, zeroing 
in on individual artists who 
lived several centuries ago, 
does not lead to greater certainty but, at 
best, to more methodical speculation. To 
avoid the tedium of perpetual hypothesis, 
die publisher entrusted the text to a pro- 
fessor of Italian literature at the Universi- 
ty of Catania. The style is chirpQy allusive 
when not downright incomprehensible. A 
ample list of plates and an index would 
help. But in the end the only thing that is 
new and worth pondering again and 
again is tbe photography. 

A dose-up of the Santa Maria Novella 
fresco shows quick slanting strokes invisi- 
ble to the visitor standing in the church. 
These seem to echo the remark of a 16th- 
century writer that the fresco was done 
“in great haste.” Such details are enough 
to make tbe book indispensable. 


to aS tunes and the title they 
have given me, far from being a 
punishment, is the purest of re- 
wards. All that is synthesis is 
archaism, tbe archaic is the op- 
posite of copying, is the bom 
enemy of lying — of tbe whole 
stupidly odious art of trompe 
Tool that makes a corpse out of 
marble. Archaic art penetrates 
the universal and is in harmony 
with it; h is both the most hu- 
man and the most eternal art.” 

The Montaoban monument 
thus embodies the dramatic im- 
pact of Bourdelle’s earlier weak 
and suggestions of his .later 
sculptures. These latter include 
some fine pend ve portraits (Ro- 
din with a flowing beard, the 
writer Anatole France, the 
painter Ingres, a curious self- 
portrait (1908), full-length but 
bereft of arms, in which the 
artist appears immersed in 
thought, lus head bent forward) 
as well as a series of more alle- 
gorical sculptures that capture 
and explore movement. 

I N view of Bourdelle’s j 
commission far tbe Th6- • 
litre des Champs-EIysSes 
and the opera in Mar- 
seille, many of these are actual- 
ly devoted to dance, inspired by 
Isadora Duncan and Nijinsky. 
However, gentler rhythms 
abound in the studies for myth- 
ological subjects and their 
translation into three-dimen- 
sional form, where the archaism 

is more evident. 

Less constrained by academe 
than some of his older contem- 
poraries, Bourdelle was also less 
polemical and subversive than 
the avant-garde of his time. He 1 
thus mapped out a road of his 
own that, though interesting at 
every turn, has tended to elude 
the pilgrim hordes. The exhibi- 
tion, here until Sept 4, is a 
chance to see the work of a 
great artist in the right light: 
IBs own. The show will be at 
the Palazzo Ducale in Genoa 
from Sept. 16 to Oct 30.

Dollar Surges 
On Renewed 
Bond Demand 

Greenspan Warns Against 
Too Much Monetary Easing 

Compiled by Our Staff Front Dispatches 

NEW YORK — The dollar 
surged Friday on strong de- 
mand for U.S. securities and 
indications U.S. interest rates 
are at least on firm ground and 
possibly beaded higher. 

Alan Greenspan, chairman 
of the Federal Reserve Board, 
said Friday that central banks 
must resist the urge to fight high 
unemployment with loose mon- 
etary policy. 

Higher interest rates increase 
the return on doUar-denominal- 
ed deposits. 

The dollar also was bolstered 
by a rally in Treasury bond 

f irices as investors bought dol- 
ars to buy bonds. The price of 
the benchmark 30-year Trea- 
sury bond rose 21/32 point, to 
100 8/32. sending the yield 
down to 7.4S percent from 7.53 
percent Thursday. 

At one point, bond prices

ZURICH — NestJ6 SA on Friday raised 
its stake in an Italian mineral-water com- 
pany, a decision that analysts said showed 
the food company was likely to renew its 
expansion in the sector. 

The Switzerland-based conglomerate al- 
ready is the leading bottled- water compa- 
ny in the world. It enlarged its stake in the 
Luxembourg holding company Compag- 
nie Financifcre du Haut-RJhin SA. which 
has majority control of San Pellegrino 
SpA, to 42 percent from 28 percent. Nestle 
purchased the shares from two Italian fam- 
ilies, the Gardinis and the Malagars. 

It added h was still negotiating with the 
Mentasti group, which controls Cotnpag- 
nie Financifcre du Haut-Rhin, to buy more 
shares and raise its stake further, to 49 
percent. No financial details were given. 

Nestifc also has a direct 25 percent stake 
in San Pellegrino, Europe's sixth-1 argest 
maker of soft drinks. 

San Pellegrino is one of two or three 
“truly international” mineral-water 
brands, said Fran^ois-Xavier Pierroud. a 
Nestifc spokesman 

Since buying Source Pemer sa 01 
France two years ago, Nestle has said re- 
peatedly that it sees good prospects for 
nirther expansion in the mineral water 
business. Last week it acquired Sources du 
Col Saint Jean SA a small French mineral- 
water company. 

Wilhelm Blaeuer, analyst at Union Bank 
of Switzerland, said he expected Nestle, 
already the world leader in mineral water, 
to make more acquisitions, mainly in the 
United States. 

He said Germany presented opportuni- 
ties for expansion, as the market there was 
highly fragmented. Another opportunity 
lay in Volvo AB’s Branded Consumer 
Product^ the former food operations of 
Procordia AB. 

Nestifc has said it was interested in buy- 
ing certain parts of Branded Consumer 
Products, which Volvo wants to sell. 
Among the unit’s activities is the Ramlosa 
mineral water line. 

Through its direct stake in San Pelle- 
grino and the indirect stake via Compagnie 
Financifcre, Nestifc will have an effective 
overall holding of 53.8 percent in. the Ital- 
ian min eral water concern. But it will still 
not have control, which will remain with 

the Italian Mentasti family. The Mentastis ^ 
will continue to have 51 percent of Com- ? 
pagnie Financifcre; which reportedly owns . 
58.7 percent of San Pellegrino. 

Swiss analysts said they expected Nes- 
tle. which traditionally shuns minority ; 
slakes in companies, eventually to seek • 
control of Compagnie Knandere du Haut- 

But Mr. Perroud of Nestle said, “We wifi • 
not be running the company; it’s a finan- I 
rial participation. 

James Amoroso, an analyst at Credit 
Suisse, said Nes lie’s move to increase its 
holding in San Pellegrino was “totally in 
line” with the company's strategy of ex- 
panding its mineral-water business, 

Nestie’s stock rose 27 Swiss francs ’ 
($20.72) to 1.229. a gain that was about 
double that of the overall market, dealers 
noted. Mr. Amoroso said Nestle had 
“stormed back” in the past five weeks after 
a period of weak performance. “Investors 
are returning to the stock.” he said. 

Nestle shares have been as high as 1.426 
francs this year, but they slumped from 
that high in late January, reaching a low of 
1,070 on July 13.

at 3,881.05, while gaining issues 
outnumbered losing ones by a

short positions, analysts said, 
speeding the dollar’s rise. 

In a short sale, traders sell 
dollars for other currencies on 
expectations that they will be 
able to buy them back at a low- 
er rate and make a profit. 

“The interbank market was 
really short and had to cover 
their positions on the way up,” 
said Peter von Maydell, curren- 
cy strategist at First National 
Bank of Chicago. 

The dollar’s rally gathered 
further momentum as its rise 
triggered stop-loss orders, which 
are set in advance to limit losses 
when a currency moves against 
expectations, traders said. 

But analysts warned that the 
dollar’s gains against the yen 
could be short-lived if the Unit- 
ed States and Japan did not 
make progress in their trade 
talks . 

“We would agree if a trade 
agreement is reached, that 
would be good for the dollar," 
said Adam Chester, interna- 
tional bond strategist at Yamai- 
chi Securities in London. “Bui 1 
don’t think we’re at a stage 
where a near-term agreement is 
on the cards." 

The dollar got some support 
against the yen from rumors 
that George Soros, the financier 
and currency speculator, was 
buying the currency. (Reuters,

buyback of 10 tniTKnn shares, or abbot 19 percent outstanding .

above 5 percent this year, in-

securities company Goldman, 
Sachs & Co. has taken a 25-2 
percent capital stake in the Ger- 
man television station Vox, 
German officials announced 

But a Goldman Sachs official 
in Frankfort said the company 
bad yet to decide on the pur- 
chase and continued to study 
the move ‘intensivdy.*' 

Media regulators in four Ger- 
man regions covering the Co- 
logne-based station approved 
the purchase at a joint m eetin g 
Thursday in Frankfurt, the 
North Rhine- Westphalia re- 
gional broadcasting authority 

Rupert Murdoch's News 
Carp, bought 49.9 percent af 
Vox last- month, and the Ger- 
man communications group 
Bertelsmann bolds a 24.9 per- 
cent stake. 

Vox, launched in January 
1993 by Bertelsmann and a 
number of other Gunman media 
groups, has lost more than 300.

Capital spending for fixed as- 
sets in the first half-year in-

VIAG is fully consolidating

that it said would be reflected in 
its full-year figures. As at the 
half-year stage, that m ea ns fig-

2 Paths to Biotech Payoff 

British Firms Pursue Divergent Strategies 


LONDON — Britain’s two leading bio- 
technology companies are pursuing different 
paths toward a common goal of achieving 
profitability by the end of the decade. 

At first sight, British Biotech PLC and 
Cell t ech Group PLC look almost identicaL 
Both have an asthma drug with a big partner, 
both have the same type of cancer drug, and 
both are working on septic shock. 

But industry sources say the similarities con- 

i Biotech plans to become a fully 
phar m aceutical company in its core 
cancer business. Cell tech aims to be a drug 
discovery “boutique,” serving big partners. 

“It’s a real difference,’* John Berriman. 
Cell tech's business development director, 
said. “British Biotech have focused their fi- 
nance on one or two projects and have kept 
the ownership to themselves. We’ve chosen, 
by having partners, to have more projects — 
but dearly we don’t retain as much of the 

Cell tech has followed the example of such 
U.S.-based biotech outfits as Biogen Inc. 
Chiron Carp., while British Biotech has been 
closer to the model of Amgen Incx, Synergen 
Inc. or Ceatocor Inc., Mr. Berriman said. 

Many large pharmaceutical companies, 
looking to biotech start-ups to supplement 
then flagging flow of new drugs, would prefer 
such companies to follow the Biogen/ Cell- 
tech model and bring in outside partners to 
fund drug development. 

“Biotechnology companies can best add 
value to the health care system by helping 
pharmaceutical companies get to the basis of 
chronic disease,” the chief executive of Glaxo 
Holdings PLC, Sir Richard Sykes, said. 

“That is why I firmly believe that biotech- 
nolgy companies who wish to become fully 
integrated pharmaceutical companies are 
the point.” 

But James Noble, finance director of Brit- 
ish Biotech, said retaining full control of 
development and marketing was still a viable 
option for well-funded European biotech 
groups working in certain hospital-based 
therapeutic areas, such as cancer treatment. 

Clinical trials for cancer, typically requir- 
ing few patients, are relatively cheap. Fur- 
thermore, the hospital doctors who use cancer 
drugs can be reached with a small sales force. 

Cancer compares sharply with such chronic 
therapeutic areas as asthma and arthritis, ar- 
eas where British Biotech would never con- 
template developing drugs on its own, Mr. 
Noble said. 

Both companies can claim recent successes 
in their diverse strategies. 

British Biotech shares rallied 40 percent in 
the first quarter on optimism about clinical 
trials of its batimastat cancer drug, before 
falling bade on profit-taking. This month they 
have climbed again. 

Celltech’s stock, meanwhile, rose 10 per- 
cent in July amid news of an asthma drug it 
had developed with Merck & Co. 

Premiiun-Income Gain Lifts Aegon 

Canvihdby Otr Sufi From Dijpauha 

NV said Friday its first-half net 
""It rose 11 percent, helped 
a sharp j ump in premium 

Aegon earned 550.7 million 
guilders (5318 million) in the 
first six months, up from 497 
million guilders in the 1993 first 
half, on revenue of 9.36 billion 
guilders, up 5 percent 

Premium income from Ae- 
gon’s insurance activities 
soared 46 percent to 7.66 bil- 
lion guilders, buoyed by the 
consolidation of the insurer 
Scottish Equitable, which was 
acquired Inst year. 

Profit from life insurance op- 
erations rose to 478 million 
guilders from 426 million guil- 
ders, with profit from accident 
and health insurance dropping 

Despite turbulent financial 
markets, returns on investments 
rose to 3.34 billion guilders 
from 3.14 billion guilders. 

Exchange-rate developments 
had a slightly positive effect in 
the first half, the company said. 

Shareholders greeted the re- 
sults by sending Aegon’s stock 
up to 104.60 guilders from 
101.80 guilders. 

Aegon said revenue and prof- 
it rose in the United States, 
marked by buoyant results at 
the individual and financial 
markets divisions. 

In European countries outride 
the Netherlands, Aegon said re- 
sults were positive at all opera- 
tions except those in Britain. 

Aegon said its Dutch insur- 
ance operations saw a contin- 
ued upturn in the first half, de- 
spite strong competition in life 

sector, results at FGH Bank 
were considerably higher be- 
cause of higher interest rate 
margins. (AP, Bloomberg )

losses on or wrote down the 
value of securities by 4S2 mil-

U.S. Banks 
Help ABN 

Compiled ty Our Staff From Dispatches 

AMRO Holding NV said Fri- 
day its net income rose 15 per- 
cent in the first half, as strong 
p»mings from U.S. subsidiaries 
offset a drop in trading income. 

The Dutch bank holding com- 
pany earned 1.16 billion guilders 
(£668 million) in the half, up 
from 2.01 billion guilders in the 
first six months of 1993, exceed- 
ing analysts’ forecasts. 

Income from North Ameri- 
can operations more than dou- 
bled, to 452 million guilders 
from 213 million guilders, al- 
though the year-earlier result 
was depressed by the write-off 
of some U.S. bond holdings. 

The bank attributed the jump 
to increased business volume at 
its LaSalle National Corp. in 
Chicago and European Ameri- 
can Bank in New York. 

Net interest income rose 9 
percent, to 4.80 billion guilders, 
mainly on volume growth and 
slightly higher interest rate mar- 
gins abroad. 

Net commission income rose 
15 percent to 1.95 billion guil- 
ders, mainly because of a 32 
percent rise in securities com- 

But results from financial 
transactions — including secu- 
rities and foreign exchange 
tr ading — fell 22 percent, to 496 
milli on guilders, because of the 
unexpected uptrend in interna- 
tional capital market rates. 

ABN stock rose to 62.80 guil-

Ex-Soviets Shop in India 

f Little Russia ’ Clients Baying for Export 

By Sanjoy Hazarika 

Hen York Tima Service 

NEW DELHI — At a bustling little market 
on the edge of New DdfaTs diplomatic enclave, 
foreign window-shoppers and serious buyers in 
s ung lasses, shorn and T-shirts stroll m the 
summer heat, glancin g at sig ns in Russian. 

This is Yashwant Place Shopping Center, 
better known as Little Russia, where store- 
keepers speak fluent Russian. Even the menus 
at the tiny Tibetan restaurants are in Russian. 

And, of course, the buyers of carpets, leath- 
er coats and fur garments, as well as jeans and 
jewelry, are predominantly from Russia, oth- 
er republics of the former Soviet Union or 
Eastern Europe. 

Every week, chartered jetliners disgorge 
hundreds of passengers, mostly Russians ami 
Ukrainians, with a sin gle agenda: to buy. 
They spend a good part of then* rime in Little 
Russia, a jumble of 124 stores, most of which 
occupy the first Door and basement of a 
ample concrete building. 

Few purchases are for personal use. The 
buyers are primarily small entrepreneurs who 
boy goods- to sell at home for luge profits. 

‘become here because of two things,” said 
Marina Gahishkevitz, who runs a small im- 
port business in Kiev with her husband. 

“One, yon get a wide variety of products — 
whatever you want to buy you get in one 
place,” die said. “The second reason is that 
yon are sure of the quality of what you buy.” 

Ms. Gahishkevitz lived seven years in Chao- 
digarh, in northern India, where she taught 
ballet and aerobics while her husband, Vladi- 
mir Popov, taught Russian at a university. 

Ms. Gahishkevitz said she and many others 
from the former Soviet Union, which had 
extensive trading and political connections 
with India, were taking advantage of Indian 
contacts built up over the years. 

Russians were once unwelcome buyers be- 
cause they traded in rubles, a result of a deal 
between India and the Soviet Union that 
permitted trade in their respective currencies, 
with the collapse of communism and the 
breakup of the Soviet Union, all business is 
strictly in hard currency. 

Sales are estimated by store owners at 
about $25 milli on a year. But business could' 
improve, they add, if air freight were less 
expensive ana the planes more reliable. 

Little Russia is about 25 years old, but it 
saw wily indifferent growth until communism 
tottered and ultimately fell 

“The profile of the buyer has changed dra- 
matically, especially after the end of the Sovi- 
et Union,” said Sanjiv Duggai, a carpet deal- 
er. “They are no longer looking for cheap 
bargains; they want quality goods. They are 

The buyers include airline staff and diplo- 
mats as well as charter groups. 

As Little Russia has prospered, similar 
markets have appeared across New Delhi 
Savvy buyers are also going directly to plants 
in northern India, especially Punjab, where 
large amounts of sporting goods and winter 
clothes are produced. 

“Once that trend catches on, then we will 
suffer,” a trader at Yashwant Place said 
“They won't need us, and they’ll save on our

Hong Kong Raises ’94 Growth Forecast to 5.7% 

Ccm/rUtd by Oar Sutff From Dispatches 

HONG KONG — Hong Kong’s econo- 
my should expand S.7 percent in 1994, 
rather than the 53 percent originally fore- 
cast, the government said Friday. 

In its half-year economic report, the 
government said the territory's economy 
continued to show “robust growth” in the 
first half of the year. Gross domestic prod- 
uct grew an estimated 5.9 percent in 1993. 

Consumer spending in the first half was 
encouraged by full employment and sus- 
tained increases in real incomes; the gov- 

ernment said. Retail sales rose 8 percent in 
the half, it said. 

Inflation is forecast to remain at 83 per- 
cent for the year, although the rale has been 
ed ging up recently, the government said. 

“Inflationary pressures, specifically those 
being reflected in the sharply higher prices 
of vegetables consequential to the flooding 
in south China, have already lifted consum- 
er price inflation in July,” it said. 

Total exports grew by about 10 percent in 
the first half, while imports rose 12 percent. 

The gross domestic product revision is 

based on a new formula that gives a greater 
weight to the services sector.

T HE concept of so-called green and 
ethically-acceptablc companies, r 
regardless of -which industrial sec- 
_ tor they come from, presents a 
formidable challenge : to investors, one 
which pose difficult questions. . 

Imagine, for example, that a trusted bro- 
ker rings you up wdh tips bo-some hot 
(albeit, for our purposes, fictionalVcon^ja- 
iries: Shoot ’Em Corp^ wbich makes autor 
ma tie weapons, is poisedforiiuge earmB^ 
growth; its share price is. fikdy to rise 25 
percent wiihutiayear. Geanstreams PLQ 
which through amiraculous new process is 
rejuvenating our polluted oceans, lakes, 
and overs, looks nice a great bet too; its 
shares ought to igafe J5 percent, 

fer to cwwi shares 

cleans the envnoriraeui rather than in one 
which makes guns, most would also prefer 
to have the extra 10 parent retanu 
Choosing between the two wotttd involve 
a crisis of conscience fra some investors. 

Bat not for alL And that’s what makes;, 
the realm of ethical investment; at least at . 
times, so perplexing.- . 

Indeed, while many of today’s ethical 
funds eschew companies that trade in 
products such astotaoco, alcoholic bever- / 
ages and firearms as a matter of course; 
such companies grve litfle pause to some - 
investors. Guns, for example, while often ; 
an instrument erf tragic, unnecessary vio- 
lence, can also .beviemd as a Godsend. 
The Allied soldiers who liberated Flans 
from the Naas 50 years ago. this week 
probably thought die people who manu- 
factureo then rifles woe a pretty swell 
bmidL Times, of course, have changed. • 

Thepoint, however, is that like physical 
beauty, the notion ofw&ai is ethical or not 
is in the eye of die beholder. First, people 
must decide if conscience, not just capital 
gain, plays a role on tharpersaaal invest- 
ing stage. If it does, they must then begin 
to listen to its often lengthy dialogue. 

For global investors, this column can 
think of few more worthwhile endeavors. 

' d .Y / HEN shares of Hoechst AG, 
w ja / the German chemicals con- 
. VV cern ’ jumped earlier this 
w"- T - . month on the news that it had 

devel oped a product capable of filtering 
out harmful levels of ozone gas inside 
.hmldmgsaQd vehicles, some analysts fm id 
tbectovetopment highlighted the dilemma 
facing,' investors interested in so-called 
green er ecological investing. 

Indeedj does the development of envi- 
mn men tall y friendly products by chemi- 
cal 'companies make them acceptable 
gjren investments? Or must they be ruled 
out because elsewhere in their spraw ling 
£inpue8,-they may still have waste pipes 
spewing out harmful effluent? 

. Not long ago, chemical companies were 
seen- as rate of the main culprits in the

Andfhey still do their share of damage, 
say analysts. The irony, however, is that 
they arealso the companies most likely to 
find ways of cleaning up the mess, and to 
help others, cot manufacturing pollution. 

• :Tlris paradox is tying Europe’s bur- 
geoning $1 billion green fund industry — 
overhalf of whichis in Britain — in knots. 

Each fond, for example, uses different

of investing in the waste management sec- 
tor are equally tricky. Waste companies,

“You are always skating on thin ice, but 
yon have to take a sensible view.” said 
Struan Simpson, an officia l at the Lou- 
don-based Conservation Foundation 
which, among many activities, helps green 
fund managers assess companies. 

“Most ethical funds tend to avoid the 
biggest companies. But in my view, the 
environmental investor should invest in the 
more responsible large companies, even if 
they are chemical companies. They have 
the hinds to batik environmental improve- 
ment and to sponsor health and safety 
standards. They have to be encouraged.”

with this approach. Tessa Tennant, chief 
of green and ethical investments at NPL 
the London life insurance concern, says: 
“It is not sufficient for a company to say 
Chat it is moving in the right direction or 
that it has developed a new great technol- 
ogy. That does not write off other ques- 
tions about its environmental record.” 

The ratty European chemical company 
in NFTs $20 million Global Care Fund is 
Kalon Group PLC, which makes solvent- 
free paints. “It doesn’t mean that Kalon is 
the only green chemical company in Eu- 
rope," said Miss Tennan t. “We are only 
just beginning to focus on the industry.” 

Catherine Westover, a researcher at the 
London-based investment management 
firm Jupiter Tyndall Merlin Ltd., which 
runs the Jupiter International Green In- 
vestment Trust and the Merlin Jupiter 
Ecology Fund, takes a similar approach to 
that ofNPJ. She also sees Kalon as a green 
stock, along with Greenway Holdings 
PLC a amah British chemical company 
which recycles waste oiL 

“It would be shirking the challenge just 
to pick companies that don’t harm the 
environment,” she said. “Instead, we try 
to pick companies that try to do some- 
thing /or the environment without damag- 
ing it at the same time. Unfortunately, 
that rules out most chemical firms.” 

Her view is one step away from the 
harder-line green funds which will only 
invest in companies involved in businesses 
which actively clean up environmental

Gary McKenzie, a fund manager at

White most of the European green 
funds agonize about whether or not to 
invest in chemical companies, one French 
fund, the Biosphere fund, which is run by 
Cyril Finance, doesn’t get bung up rat 
philosophical debate. Their criteria allow 
investment in any company in which at 
least 25 percent of total sales are in either 
environmental or health care products. 

Picking waste management stocks is an 
easier task, once it is dear that the compa- 
ny is not actually adding to environmental 
problems. Some of the favorites among 

Inicnuuional Herald Tribone 

UJC fund managers are Tomra Systems 
A/S, a Norwegian concern which manu- 
factures recycling machines, and Vetro- 
pak Holding AG, the Swiss gl«« firm 
which has a large recycling operation. 

Looking forward, many observers say 
that individual investors as well as fund 
managers can influence corporate sensi- 
tivity to environmental concerns. “We 
have got to use the stick and carrot more 
effectively,” said Mr. Simpson. “We 
should publicly divest if companies don’t 
meet certain targets.”

F OR individuals, the most diffi- 
cult part of entering the realm 
of ethical and environmental 
investing can be, first, figuring 
out one’s own criteria, and second, find- 
ing companies to match them. The Lon- 
don-based Ethical Investment Research 
Service, known as E1R1S, is one organi- 
zation which can aid in that process. 

A registered charity since its inception 
in 1983, EIRIS has developed a detailed 
questionnaire enabling prospective in- 
vestors to identify multifarious corpo- 
rate characteristics, and to establish 
which ones they find acceptable or unac- 

The questionnaire uses both the posi- 
tive and negative approach, prompting 

investors to specify which types of com- 
panies they wish ’ to avoid, as well as 
which types they wish to encourage. 

Once an individual’s criteria have 
been established, EIRIS will provide a 
list of up to 50 U.K.- based companies 
with which they are compatible. The fee 
for this service is £94 ($145). 

EIRJS’s executive director, Peter 
Webster, said the organization is in the 
process of expanding its research capa- 
bilities for individual investors to indude 
U.S.- and continental Europe- based 

He also said that most ethical inves- 
tors seem more concerned with negative 
rather than positive criteria.“People feel 
strongly about what they don’t want 

their money to go into,” he said. “But 
many people do want to support the 
investments they believe in.” 

Other analysts add that while many 
people say they are interested in ethical 
investment, relatively few have the time 
to do the necessary research. 

While EIRIS does not advise clients 
on potential investment returns, it does 
provide free lists of fund managers who 
use its service, aod of independent finan- 
cial advisers and stock brokers who spe- 
cialize in ethical investments.

tf.S. Waste Firms Picking Up 

I By Mkted D. Mc-NicHe 

TS a dirty job, bat some^

TJ rated - States, waste 
managemem and disposal 
grown' into an es ti ma t ed 
530 biffion-a-year business for 
solid waste alone. . 

■ It. wasn’t always so. In the 
j>ast 13 yearn, the waste man- 
ne&t field has mushroomed. 

: market now includes niche 
specializing in areas sodb 
as : ehwonmen tal engineering . 
£nd consol ting, water purifica- 
tion, air emission control, and 
hazardous waste disposal. 

A-decad&ago* say observers, 
the industry appeared to have 
fmlixmted potential But subse- 
quent recessions, - legislative 
wntngSng, and ttamges in the 
way people and companies sep- 
arate then garbage has, to some 
degree, redefineathe industry; 
Analysts who once had bound- 
less enthusiasm for the entire 
sector now seem more focused 
on specific segments. 

) Kenneth C. Leung, a manag- 
ing director at the New York 
brokerage Smith Barney, said, 
for example that while his firm 
fiad no current interest in haz- 
ardous waste disposal compar 
nies, it did have an interest in 
companies that handled ’sbKd 
waste. He noted that, generally 
toealang, industry has become 
better at processing its own haz- 

jbr Specialist firms vririch col- 
lect and dispose of i t : 

\ The solid waste business, he 
said, “had a sl owdow n over the 
{ast three years, but is now be- 
ginning to pick-up again. “In 
1993, volume was nice in solid 
waste collection, and this year 
volume is pretty good, and pric- 
ing on the collection "siae is 
starting to moveup.” 

Mr. Leung said his principal 
share recommendation in the 
sector is Houston -based 
Browning-Ferns Industries Inc. 
‘*We*ve been -recommending 
that stock since abont the $16 
level, and. it is now at about 
$31,” he said.. “Wefre looking 
for a juice target in the $35 to 
$40 range/ 

die much lamer WMX Tech- 
nologies Ino, has also started to 
renew analyst confidence, re- 
cently breaking a long string of 
earnings disappointments with 

two favorable quartets. Some 
analysts, however, feel that 
WMX is a behemoth still in the 
process of reining itself in, and 
that Browning-Ferns has a 
more focused business. 

Pip Barton, a.senior technol- 
ogy analyst and' portfolio man- 
ager with Fidelity Management 
and Research in Boston, said: 
“I consider Browning- Ferris 
more attracti v e ; because they 
have a much mare active land- 
fill development program. 
They’re more Hkdy to gain 
share on WMX zu the next three 

- Mr. Barton- added that 
Browning-Fems recently 
bought a 50 percent interest in a 
German anti) waste concern, 
and that operating margins in 
Europe were rigo^cantly high- 
er than in the United States. 

Andrew Banish, vice presi- 
dent of the San Francisco- 
based brokerage Robertson, 
Stephens & Company, also 
likes WMX. He . said that the 
company, in addition to having 
favorable pricing structures and 
vohnM, “also is potting in place 
a number of programs that are 
increasing profitability by mak- 
ing its sohd waste operations 
more productive.” 

The environmental and ethi- 
cal investment community, for 

its part, generally feels that 
while shares of WMX and 
Browning-Fems may be attrac- 
tive from an earnings point of 
view, neither company warrants 
a listing on anybody’s “ap- 
proved” list, say analysts who 
follow green investment trends. 

For those'with a taste for a 
.smaller company , Mr. Banish 
suggested U.SA. Waste Ser- 
vices Ino, based in Dallas. He 
noted that with a recent merger, 
U.SLA. Waste was able to ex- 
pand into several new regions, 
essentially establishing a na- 
tional presence. He predicted 
eammgs-per-share of over $1 
for the company in 1995. 

He also recommended Con- 
necticut-based United Waste 
Systems Ino, which he said has 
attractive acquisition opportu- 
nities and “very predictable 
earnings growth due to strong 
pricing gains and volume gains 
in its existing markets.” 

Another company analysts 
have been talking up is Sanifin 
Ino, also based in Houston. “I 
think they are the premier 
growth company in the solid 
waste management business” 
remarked David A McDonald, 
a managing director with the 
Minneapolis brokerage Wea- 
sels, Arnold & Henderson. Mr. 
McDonald said the firm’s ag- 
gressive expansion of its collec- 
tion business has “paid very 
handsomely. They’ve had the 
stoogest performance in the in- 
dustry over the past two years.” 

There are also some interest- 
ing niche plays outside of the 
solid waste segment. Mr. Mo 
Donald has a “buy” recommen- 
dation on Envirotest Systems 
Corp„ a firm that does auto 
emission inspections. “It is the 
leading provider of these sys- 
tems,” be said. “ It’s got a 
roughly two thirds market 

U.S. Eco-Funds Tap Chemicals , Recyclers 

By Judith Rehak 

I T MAY seem illogical, 
but ethical investing ac- 
tivists In the United 
States can be just as toogh 
on environmental services com- 
panies as they are on chemical 

E iroducers, long-reviled as poi- 
nters of earth, air and water. 

Even more surprising, a 
growing number of chemical 
companies are now passing 
muster with green fund manag- 
ers and environ mental ly sensi- 
tive investors. 

“Chemicals may have a bad 
name, but they have uses,” says 
Patrick McVeigh of Franldm 
Research & Development, a 
Boston-based institutional fund 
manager which also assesses 
companies for ethical investors. 
“We don’t blackball whole in- 

Along with several of bis 
counterparts, Mr. McVeigh is 
recommending HJB. Fuller Co, 
a manufacturer of glue and 
prints. Fuller has attracted an 
ecological fan dub by being 
among the first chemical com- 
panies to sign the so-called Ce- 
res principles (Coalition for En- 
vironmentally Responsible 
Economies), an independent 
code of environmental conduct. 

“They changed their gjue- 
making process from a solvent- 
based process, which produced 
hazardous waste, to a water- 
based process, even though it 
was more expensive,” said Mr. 

Two other chemical compa- 
nies on the “approved” list of 
many ethical fund managers are 
Nalco Chemical Co., which 
makes water purification chemi- 
cals, and Cabot Corp^ a produc- 
er of carbon black, winch used in 
manufacturing rubber tires. 

A more controversial choice 
is Sim Co., an oil refiner and 
petrochemical maker. Disasters 
like the Exxon Valdez oil spill 
have made ofl companies pari- 
ahs to much of the green com- 
munity, but the $114 million, 
San Francisco-based Parnassus 
Fund, a well-known ethical in- 
vestment vehicle, has no qualms 
about owning Sun. 

“Their attitude toward the 
environment is very different 
from other oil companies,” ar- 
gues David Pogran, director of 
research for Parnassus.

Threat of EU Laws Dims Bright Chemical Sector 

By Bale Netzer 

1EN -German 
chemical giant 
BASF AG an- 
nounced its sec- 
ond-quarter results in London 
just over a week ago, its finance 
director. Max Diemch Kley, 
declared that only under one 
Condition could BASF and the 
European rfiemieai industry as 
a whole remain competitive. 

I “Namely” he said, “that the 
EU and national gove rnm ents 

00 not interfere by introducing 
economically unhealthy initia- 
tives or regulations. I am very 
ihankfi ll that the government of 
the United Kingdom has so far 
jnevemed a carbon dioxide en- 
ergy tax within Europe.” 

1 Mock analysts who track the 
European chemical sector say 
that BASF, based in a country 
Already recognized as one of the 
roost stringently regulated, un- 
derstands rally the danger that 
European-wide legislation 
might pose to its bottom line. 

* “Companies which continue, 
to invest in European countries 
will be at a disadvantage to 
those that invest in other pans 
of the world,” said. CampbeD 
Lillies, chemical analyst at 
NatWesl Securities in London. 
*ln terms of environmental reg- 
ulation, the best thing there 
companies can do is lb gel out. 
of Europe." 

Currently, between 10 and 14 
percent of capital expenditures 
in the chemical industry are de- 
voted to environmental issues, 
according to Mr. GiSies. By 
1997, he said, that ratio should 
climb to 20 percent. Indeed, af- 
ter a recent study bv a German 
think-tank found that an 
tax would make both ecol 
and economic sense, the 
man chemical industry issued a 
scathing rebuttal, claiming that, 
within 15 years, such a tax 
would cost the industry $17-5 
billion annually. - 

Analysts say the result of all 
the bickering is that harmoniza- 

tion of environmental legisla- 
tion is untikdy to occur any- 
time soon, despite a wide 
divergence in laws across Eu- 

“Investors, don’t see any 
threatening type of environ- 
mental legislation coming out 
in the mat year,” said Martin 
Gham, chemical stock analyst 
at Lehman Brothers in London. 
“If they did, it would be reflect- 
ed in stockpoces, and prices on 
Europe an chemical stocks are 
at high points how” 

Indeed after fritting a reces- 
sionary bottom in the summer 
of 1993, European chemical 
shares began their cyclical re- 
covery, rising over 20 percent 
since last June. While share 
prices fed between May and 
early. July of this year, partly 
doe to the UJS. dollar's weak- 
ness, chemical slocks may once 
again be rattying. 

In rese ar c h published earlier 
tins month, for example, Gold- 
man, Sachs International in 
London predicted that Europe- 
an chemical shares could very 
wdl climb 10 to 15 percent by 
next spring. *- 

Many, of the shares analysts 
are now touting are located in 
the countries where environ- 
mental legislation is already 
quite stiff, ha recommending 
stocks, many say that pan-Eu- 
ropean harmonization of envi- 
ronmental laws is a longer-term 
conaderatioii, and only a possi- 
bility at that. 

Mr. GSOes at NatWesl said 
he reco mmend* shares in the 
huge Dutch company, Akzo 
Nobd NV. Heforecast that the 
company's share price could 
zee more than 30 percent over 
the next two years. 

While the- - shares currently 
trade at 12 times estimated 1994 
earnings, that valuation is 
cheap m comparison with the 
European sector, Mr. Gillies 
points oul European shares 
were recently trading at 17 
times 1994 estimated earning. 

For investors interested in a 

more cyclical stodc play, Mr. 
Gillies recommends another 
Dutch company, DSM NV. 

“They are more exposed on 
the commodity side of the busi- 
ness than Akzo Nobd because 
they have a substantial base in 
petrochemicals and polymers,'’ 
he said. “But we’re now starting 
to see a big pickup in the de- 
mand for petrochemicals.” 

Mr. Glenn of Lehman Broth- 
ers is currently recommending 
German chemical company 
Hoechst AG, predicting that its 
shares could rise about 15 per- 
cent in the next 12 months. 
Many analysts watching dial 
company are pinning their 
hopes on a new management 

ream that has started & COSt- 

cutting drive. Hoechst shares 
surged earlier this month when 
it announced a new product de- 
signed to filter out harmful lev- 
els of ozone gas inside buildings 
and vehicles. 

Also on Mr. Glenn’s “buy” 
list is the Belgium company SoJ- 
vay SA. 

Although European chemical 
companies tike Hoechst and 
Akzo Nobel may fear the grip 
of environmental regulators, 
analysts say investors have little 
to worry about. Plastic recy- 

S and energy taxes, for ex- 
e, are still under debate. 
Also, any EU initiative “would 
be introduced gradually, giving 
the companies plenty of time to 
meet the requirements,” said 
Mr. Gillies. 

Moreover, today’s investors 
may have learned to take pro- 
pored environmental laws in 
stride: “You won't lose 10 per- 
cent on a stock just because 
some wacky politician comes up 
with an idea,” said Mr. Glenn.

As for environmental ser- 
vices companies themselves, 
many mainstream garbage 
haulers and landfill operators 
are currently viewed more as 
contributors to environmental 
problems than as solvers of 
them tty the ethical investment 

But a new trend is gathering 
momentum, analysts say. Rath- 
er than reactive companies that 
clean up waste after it is creat- 
ed, more social investors are 
placing their bets on pro-active 
companies, whose priority is 
stopping waste before it starts. 

Examples of the new breed 
are companies like Ionics Inc., 
which is involved in water puri- 
fication and desalinization, and 
Kenetech Coro- a wind power 
company. Both are favorites of 
George Gay, who runs the Col- 
orado-based Progressive Envi- 
ronmental Fund. 

Molten Metal Technology 
Lncx, which recycles chemicals 
and hazardous waste in a 
‘dosed loop’ system, is also a 
top choice of many environ- 
mental fund managers. And 
shares of Wellman Inc., a re- 
cyder which makes polyester fi- 
ber out of used plastic soda bot- 
tles. have nearly doubled in 
price over the past year. 

But these are among the rela- 
tively few bright spots, observ- 
ers note. Overall, environmen- 
tal stocks have turned in dismal 
performances for some time. 

As a group, U.S. environ- 
mental funds have lost 12.69 
percent over the three-year pe- 
riod ended August 1 1, accord- 
ing to Upper Analytical Ser- 
vices, the hind data group. The 
average equity fund rose 32.73 
percent over uie same period. 

Some environmental fund 
managers lay much of the 
blame on the Chnton Adminis- 
tration. “A lot of people 
thought the Chilton Environ- 
mental Protection Agency 
would be very 'thou shall, thou 
shalt not, and if you violate our 
roles we’re going to slap you 
hard,’ ” said Mr. Pogran. 

“But they’re taking a very 
collaborative approach, where 
they want to get activists, local 
authorities and company execu- 
tives to the same table and fig- 
ure out what’s wrong and the 
cheapest way to fix it It may 
turn out to be better, but it 
takes longer. Now, you have un- 
certainty, and Wall Street hates 

Some of the problems have 
come from the companies 
themselves, said David Beck- 
with, who manages the Boston- 
based John Hancock Freedom 
Environmental Fund. “Some of 
the smaller ones came out with 
bullish stories, but then earn- 
ings feD short and some compa- 
nies blew up.” he said.

Ex-Player Recalls 
The Way It Was 

By Bob Gibson 

B ELLEVUE, Nebraska — To me, the baseball strike tastes 
like the same old soup wanned over. 

The first strike in whicb I was involved occurred during 
spring training 1969. The players 1 union was just coming into 
its own, and if we were going to have any teeth it was time to 
cut them. The owners had just negotiated a network TV 
contract that raised their revenues from half a million dollars 
to S 17 million, and their next move was to reduce the players' 
percentage. All we wanted was to keep the percentage we had. 

This time, with TV revenues headed Lhe other way. the 
owners want a salary cap. And the players, just like in 1969. 
are trying to protect what they have. 

HI give you a small example of what life used to be (ike for 
ballplayers, before we bad a strong union. During my rookie 
season. 1959, the Cardinals sent roe back to their Triple-A farm 
club in O maha. We were in Cincinnati at the lime, and 1 was 
told to use my meal money to buy a plane ticket to Omaha. 
Meal money back then was $10 a day. and I had three days' 
worth, which should have been just enough for the $30 ticket. 

But I'd already spent some of the money in the hotel gift 
shop, so the team bought the ticket and took the $30 out of my 
next paycheck. 

By the time of the 1 969 strike, 1 was making a good salary. 
But I wasn't striking for myself. I was the Cardinals* acting 
player rep at the time, and I was striking for the future. 

As strongly as I have always felt about the union, though, 
the players' gains over the years have been enormous and I 
now believe that there has to be some kind of cap on salaries. 

But the only way the players are going to accept the owners' 
arguments is if the owners are honest with them — if they 
show them, without smoke and mirrors, that they are losing 
money. If the owners did that, the players wou*ti be idiots not 
to adjust their position. 

The problem is not dollars but trust. Trust is the whole deal. 

Bab Gibson, Hall of Fame pitcher, is the author (with Lonnie 
Wheeler ) of "Stranger to the Game," an autobiography. He 
wrote this for The New York Times.

The Fans 9 Lament for a Lost Season 

By Donald Honig 

C ROMWELL, Connecticut — Some years ago, in 
Cooperstown, New York, I talked with Lloyd Waner, 
the younger of two Hall of Fame brothers who played 
outfield for the Pirates in the 1920s and ’30s. 

Paul and Lloyd Waner bad grown up on a small farm in 
Harrah, Oklahoma. 

Rustling through a haze of fond memories, Lloyd talked 
of their love for baseball, remembering how they played 
with “old rag-and-twine balls,” and sometimes, in a pinch, 
corncobs soaked in water. For a bat, they used a sawed-off 

“Broomsticks and corncobs,” Lloyd said. “That's the 
beauty of baseball — anybody can play it and it doesn't 
have to be done too fancy.” 

And then the world became magical for the Waners-x 
First Paul and then Lloyd reached the big leagues. .’ 

“Can you imagine?*' Lloyd chuckled half a century 
later. “Getting paid to play baseball? Why, we would have 
been happy to play for nothing.” 

A few years after that conversation, the Gokonda of . 
free agency was struck and major league salaries began 
taking bountiful leaps from one plateau to another. 

On another visit to Cooperstown, I met Lloyd again, 
and I asked him what he thought. He didn't begrudge the 
players anything, he replied. They were entitled to what- 
ever they could get 

Then, perhaps mischievously, I said: “Lloyd, you said 
you would have played the game for nothing. Did you 
really mean it?” 

He did not immediately respond. His thoughts might 
have been running back to the open pastures of the 
O klaho ma farm where he and Paul had whipped their 
broomsticks through the air 70 years ago. 

Finally, he looked at me and with a soft, indulgent 
smile, said, “I think I would have asked for expenses.” 

Donald Honig, a novelist and baseball historian, is author, 
most recently, of “ Last Man OuL ” He wrote this for The 
New York Times.

Brazilian Leads Grand Prix Qualifier 

SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium (Reuters) — Rubens Bar- 
rich ello of Brazil outstripped his more celebrated rivals on Friday 
to deliver the Jordan team’s first provisional pole position for the 
Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday. 

Banichello, 22, made the most of a drying track on the high- 
speed Spa-Francorchaffips circuit, the longest on the Formula 
One calendar, to clock a best time of one minute, 21.163 seconds 
in the final minute of the opening qualifying session. He finished 
three-tenths of a second ahead of Michael Schumacher, in a 
Benetton, after an hour of intriguing action on a partly wet track. 

Tampa Bay’s Hugh Culverhouse Dies 

NEW YORK (NYT) — Hugh W. Culverhouse. 75. who had 
owned the Tampa Bay Buccaneers since they were awarded a 
National Football League franchise in 1974. died in New Orleans 
of heart failure after a recurrence of lung cancer 20 months ago. 
He had been undergoing experimental treatment for a week at a 
New Orleans hospital 

Culverhouse was a tax lawyer, real-estate developer, business 
executive and notary public. Fortune magazine estimated his 
worth at $360 million. Fellow NFL club owners had high regard 
for his business sense and made him the chairman of the league’s 
finance committee. He led that group during the player strikes of 
1982 and 1987. 

However, Culverhouse’s frugally run team was a chronic loser. 
After losing its first 26 games, it somehow fell one game short of 
reaching the Super Bonn after the 1979 season. The Bucs finished 
last year with a 5-1 1 record, their 1 1th consecutive season with 10 
or more losses.

day gathering of Olympic offi- 
cials from around the world, 
coinciding with the 100th anni- 
versary of the modem Olympic 

The IOC executive board 
meets Friday through Sunday. 
The 12th Olympic Congress 
will be held next week, with 
more than 2,000 delegates ad- 
dressing issues affecting the fu- 
ture of the movement and will 
be followed by the IOC session 
Sept 4 and 5. 

The executive board will hear 
progress reports from organiz- 
ers of the next three Olympics: 
Atlanta, Nagano, Japan (winter 
1998), and Sydney (summer 
2000 ). 

The board wiQ also receive 
representatives of the nine cities 
bidding for the 2002 Winter 
(tames, including Salt I .ake 
City. The others are: Sion. Swit- 
zerland; Poprad-Tatry, Czech 
Republic; Jaca, Spain; Sochi, 
Russia; Graz, Austria; Oster- 
sund, Sweden; Quebec, and 
Tarviao, Italy. 

The IOC win choose four fi- 
nalists in January before mak- 
ing the final selection next June. 

A key issue for the IOC is the 
list of sports for die 2000 
Games in Sydney. Samar anch 
has indicated that triathlo n and 
taekwondo have a good chance 
of being added, but it appears 
unlikely that any sports will 
eliminated from the p rogra m. 

Last year, a controversial re- 
port by the IOC program com- 
mission recommended drop- 
ping modern pentathlon, 
boxing, baseball, women’s soft- 
ball and synchronized swim- 
ming. But Samaranrh has dis- 
tanced himself from the report 
and indicated that he’s not ea- 
ger to cut any sports. 

At least one IOC executive 
board member believes the pro- 
gram needs more str eamlining . 

“You might have to speculate 
that if the IOC doesn’t dimi- 
nate anything and adds two 
more spoils, who's going to 
take it seriously?” Dick Pound 
of Canada said. “There are 
some sports that you have to 
wonder if they’re really rele- 
vant. You have to ask yourself 
if something like dressage [an 
equestrian event] is really an 
Olympic sport.” 

The Associated Press 

VICTORIA, British Colum- 
bia — Michael Murphy of Aus- 
tralia overcame Robert Mor- 
gan’s early lead to win the 
men’s 10-meterplatform diving 
title at the Commonwealth 
Gaines and collect his second 
gold medal of the competition. 

Annie Pelletier of Canada 
also won her second gold by 
rallying to win the women's 3- 
meter springboard. Pelletier, 
who also won the 1-meter com- 
petition, edged a countrywom- 
an, Paige Gordon, by 0.78 of a 
point, and Australia’s Jodie 
Rogers woo the bronze. 

Murphy, who also won the 3- 
meter springboard and was sec- 
ond in the 1-meter event, was 10 
points behind Morgan, of 
Wales, tile defender, during the 
first four compulsory dives bat 
overtook him during the later, 
more acrobatic ones. 

In round three, Morgan pro- 
duced a piked reverse dive that 
brought whoops of delight from 
the fans. One of the judges 
scored it 10.00 and two others 
gave him 9.5. Even Murpby did 
not score that highly in the en- 
tire 10-dive competition. 

But the 20-year-old Austra- 
lian was more consistent during 
the last six dives and took the 
lead in round six. 

Murphy totaled 614.70 
points, Morgan had 585.96 and 
Claude Vflleneuve of Canada, 
who took up diving only four 
years ago, collected the bronze 
with 58122. 

Canada threatened a sweep 
of the medals in the women’s 
springboard when Mary De- 
Piero, the 1990 1 -meter champi- 
on, placed third after eight 
dives. But her final two were 
disastrous and Rogers, who 
won a silver in the 1-meter 
event, came up with two good 
ernes to overtake her. De Piero, 
who won a bronze off the 1- 
meter board, finished sixth. 

Pelletier, whose last two dives 
produced the highest two 
scores, totaled 529.86 points 
and Gordon had 529.08. Rogers 
scored 474.81 ahead of country- 
woman Vanessa Baker, who 
had 466.77. 

South Africa won its first 
gold medals at the Common- 
wealth Games in 36 years, in 
men’s and women’s fours lawn 

The gold came in a genteel 
sport in which competitors roll 
black balls across smooth grass. 
Swearing is strictly forbidden, 
but competitors are allowed to 
drink beer and smoke cigarettes 
while they play. 

South Africa had won one 
silver and three bronze medals 
before Thursday, and they ex- 
pect to win more. They would 
have to come in track and field, 
the only sport where South Af- 
rica has any athletes remaining. 
The chances rest with the pole 
vaulter Okkert Brits, the 800- 
meter runner Hezefa’el Sepeng, 
the 1,500-meter runner Johan 
Landsman and the women’s 
high jumper Charmaine 

The Australians added to 
their medal cache Thursday in 
diving, cycling, walking and 

The only track events Thurs- 
day were outside the stadium in 
two race walks, both won by 

Kerry Saxby-Junna won the 
women’s 10-kilometer walk in 
44 minutes 25 seconds for her 
second straight gold medal in 
the event. Nicholas A’Hem 
won the men’s 30-kUometer 
walk at 2:07:53. 

Australians won all three cy- 
cling events with Games' re- 
cords. Bradley McGee took the 
men’s 4,000-meter pursuit race 
in 4:31271, Kathryn Watt won 
the women's 3,000 pursuit event 
in 3:48.522, and Stuart 
O’Grady captured the men's 
10-mile race in 18:50.453. 

The Bulgarian-born Kiril 
Kounev, the 1989 world cham- 
pion now competing for Aus- 
tralia, swept all three gold med- 
als in the 83-kilogram class in 
weight-lifting, a competition 
maned when John McEwan of 
Scotland broke his right arm 
during a lift. 

Canada qualified five fight- 
ers into Saturday’s boxing fin-

So We’re Overweight 

M IAMI — Guess what: 

Americans are too fat 
This fact was discovered recent- 
ly by a panel of concerned ex- 
perts and reported extensively 
m the news media, as though it 
were a shocking revelation. 

The truth, of course, is that 
we Americans already know we 
have a weight problem. We no* 
rice it every tune we get out of 
the shower and look in the bath- 
room mirror and see our head 
sitting on top of what appears 
to be a towel-clad manatee. We 
notice it when we're unable to 
get our wallet out of the back 
pocket of our relaxed-fit jeans 
without the aid of power tools. 
We notice it every lime we tune 
in to TV talk shows, which dis- 
cuss weight control almost as 
much as they discuss major na- 
tional issues, by which 1 mean 
O. J. Simpson. 

So we know we're too faL But 
that did not stop a panel of 
concerned experts from re- 
minding us. This was a different 
panel from the one that an- 
nounced recently that — get 
ready — Mexican food contains 
a lot of fat This is also how the 
media reacted when previous 
concerned expert panels an- 
nounced that there was fat in 
Italian food, Chinese food, fast 
food any breakfast food that 
does not taste like mulch, and 
of course the ultimate Death 
Food-movie popcorn. 


What I want to know is, do 
these expert panels honestly be- 
lieve we don't know what these 
foods contain? 

We know perfectly well that 
we’re eating faL We just wish 
you experts would stop RE- 
MINDING us. Because the 
truth is, we LIKE fat That's the 
way we were designed by Moth- 
er Nature (who herself is a size 
24). Thai’s why we DON'T eat 
what you experts nag us to eat, 
namely, 27 individual portions 
per day of raw fruits ana vegeta- 
bles. We want to be like the 
mighty 1 km, which fears nothing 
and eats Mexican food whenever 
it chooses. 

But we never hear this kind of 
good news from panels of con- 
cerned experts. They’re too 

busy doing studies to prove yet 
again that we weigh too much 
and eat the wrong foods and 
don't exercise enough and 
watch too much TV and raise 
our kids wrong and smoke and 
drink and secretly pick our 
noses. And they LOVE to re- 
mind us that we're stupid. Just 
about every week you read a 
news story in which experts an- 
nounce an alarming new study 
showing that seven out of every 
10 Americans don’t know how 
many limbs they have, or can- 
not correctly identify their 
home planeL 


I want you concerned experts 
out there to put your ears down 
next to the page and listen close- 
ly to what I am about to say: WE 
don’t have to keep reminding us. 
We see the evidence all around 
us every day. For example: Vir- 
tually everybody who drives in 
front of me is an idioL I con- 
stantly find myself behind driv- 
ers who are startled and baffled 
by virtually everything they en- 
counter, as though they’ve never 
been outdoors before. They'll 
see, for example, a tree, and im- 
mediately they hit their brakes, 
as if they expea the tree to leap 
into the middle of the road. They 
also brake for mailboxes, build- 
ings and their own rearview mir- 
rors. But above all they brakefor 
the most disturbing and mysteri- 
ous of all earthly phenomena, a 
gre e n traffic light, which causes 
them to come to a virtual stand- 
still, paralyzed, until the light 
turns yellow and then red, at 
which point they accelerate to 
275 miles per hour and shoot 
through the intersection, leaving 
me stuck at the ligbL shouting 
until spittle covers the dash- 

My point, concerned experts, 
is that we already know what 
we're Eke. Your message has 

C etrated even our faL stupid 
ns. Some days we get so 
depressed about it that we think 
about committing suicide by 
deliberately swallowing movie 
popcorn, we would wash it 
down with diet soda.

An American View of Cricket, the English ‘Malaise 

Inuntanorai Herald Tribune 

L ONDON — Groucho Marx, it is 
said, was taken to a cricket 
march and after 30 minutes of watch- 
ing white- flanneled players moving 
balletically, and inscrutably, over the 
green, was asked how he was enjoy- 
ing the game, “fine,” he replied 
“When does it begin?” 

Another American, Mike Marqu- 
see, a Marxist of the Kail rather than 
Groucho tendency, went to his first 


cricket match in 1976 and fell in love 
with it although the game is consid- 
ered beyond a foreigner’s ken. Crick- 
et has been called less a sport than a 
secret code, chess on grass, and, by a 
former Archbishop of Canterbury, 
organized loafing — boastfully self- 
deprecating descriptions that suggest 
only a true-blue Brit can play, or 
understand, iL 

Nonsense, argues Marqusee: 
Cricket is no more difficult than 
baseball “although there are those 
funny little rules that only come into 
play at a certain part of the game." 
As for true-blue Englishmen, they 
may control die sport and give it an 
exclusive public school image, he 
says, but the best players these days 
are those who were considered lesser 
breeds in the days of empire: 

Marqusee has written a novel about 
cricket in India and a study of the 
Labor party’s campaign in the last 
election called “Defeat from the Jaws 
of Victory ” His new book, a history 
of cricket called “Anyone But Eng- 
land,” (published in London by Ver- 
so), got surprisingly friendly reviews. 

“Even if what I said was offensive 
to the establishmenL I'm not a threat 
to anybody,” Marqusee said in a cof- 
fee shop in Islington, north London, 
where he lives. “I'm seen as such an 
eccentric in the cricket world that 
people think it's amusing if they 
don't agree — 'He’s mad but this is a 
jolly interesting book.’" 

No sport is as besotted with its past, 
he says, with its congealed notions of 

mg to the bowling of a ghost/ 
symbol of English democracy and 
continuity: had the French been capa- 
ble of playing cricket with their peas- 
ants, the historian G.M. Trevelyan 
wrote, their chateaux would not have 
been burned. 

Cricket is indeed the first modem 

team Sport played on foot, Marqusee 
says, bin he adds, “Cricket is no more 
the organic outgrowth of the ancient 
community of the village seen than 
Magna Carta is the work of freedom- 
loving Saxons.” it is, he argues, less 
the result of social harmony than of 
social hierarchy: its clubs were for 
the nobility and gentry, its profes- 
sionals the servants of the dubs. 

The batsmen were the elite, the 
bowlers were paid to throw the ball to 
them. The distinction, muddied when 
oonvemoit, between gentlemen and 
players lasted until the final Gentle- 
men vs. Players match at Lord’s in 
1962. The fust full Laws of Cricket 
was publiriied in 1774 by the London 
Club whose president was the Ger- 
man-bom son of George LEL eager to 
prove his Englishness (be died an en- 
viably English death after being struck 
on the head by a cricket ball). 

Cricket’s constitution, Marqusee 
says, is, like England’s, unwritten 
and therefore open u> abuse by those 
dainring to act in its name. A by- 
product of the forces that set the 
industrial revolution in motion, 
cricket’s leitmotiv is nc in urbe, 
country in city. It suggests a tran- 
scendent code of behavior (“that’s 
not cricket”) and is truly English in 
its hypocrisy, in the way it Ees to 
itself about itself — “the cult of the 
honest yeoman and the village green, 
in the denial of cricket's origins in 
commerce, politics, patronage and 
an urban society.” 

Marqusce’s subtitle, “Cricket and 
the National Malaise,” has become a 
clichfe in recent years when the Eng- 
lish team’s defeats seemed to mirror 
the country’s decline. But he takes 
the notion of malaise further back to 
suggest a hegemonic and exclusive 
view that has dogged the game from 
the start 

Even today, women are not al- 
lowed in the pavilion at Lord's and 
Marqusee says they were only ac- 
cepted at Old Trafford a few years 
ago when a member pointed out that 
he was a woman, having had a sex 
change operation. 

Market forces now drive the game 
as they do the country, Marqusee 
says, with company logos and hospi- 
tality boxes and corporate sponsor- 
ships and aberrant inno vations such 
as Sunday ma tches in which the 
teams, instead of whites, wear what 
are called pajamas, wild-colored syn- 

v .V * • 
C , .***-v. 

Mike Marqusee on the playing field of Lord’s. 

thetic fabrics festooned with logos. 
“It’s just ghastly. The reason they 
introduced this is because what they 
call the replica kit is a big seller in 
most sports and you can’t sell repli- 
cas of all- whites.” 

The game also serves politicians. 
Norman Tebbit’s notorious “cricket 
test” suggested that immig rants who : 
rooted for non-English sides were 
not entitled to be considered true 
Englishmen. John Major earnestly 
promotes hims elf as a cricket lover. 

“The Tory party is going through a 
crisis, as you know. Entering mto 
Europe has been a trauma for them 
because it makes it difficult to recon- 
cile old nationalist values with the 
free markeL Mqor goes back and 
forth from one to the other and gets 
attacked tty one side of his party or 
the other, so he grabs onto cricket as 
a way of saying I may be pro- Europe 
but I actually love the old England.” 

Marqusee’s views are admittedly 

tinged by poEtibal bias but the strazi- 
gest part of his book is bis documen- 
tation of ugly radsm encapsulated in 
the accusations in the summer of- 
1992 that die craOk Pakistani team 
had tampered -with the ball 
The cnckei bafi, worthy of a book 
of its own, has baffled physicists and 
befuddled nmpixe&-It remains in- 
play throughout the match (in base- - 
ball there are replacements as need- 
ed) and can, forasc&mple, be damp- 
ened with sweat or spit but not 
orangeade and pressed along Its seam 
but never scratched by a fingernail. 
“Because the nne bail stays m play 
the whole time, die issue of what you 
can and can’t do'has always been a’ 
controversy and the line is gray. ■ 
“My basic argument is that the 
gray lme is ev ec ysq i e i e; it means that 
the powers that enforce the roles dp. 
so as and when it suits them. And 
when it suits fhemrin this country is 
when they play against a black side.” 

This summer, just as 
book was coming out Eagles ^ 

tain, Mike Atherton, 

King dirt from his pocket on to the. 
ball and action had to be to ** 0 
the false accusations agamst raa- 

was not fcSgudty *wi was Dned - ■ 
’ “Whether or not whatAl^toD. 

did is fflegal is uncertain becao^tne 

laws are drafted in the most open- 
ended and ambiguous way and 
consistently enforced. I don t tea 
Atherton did anything 
made no sense, it’s as if people sawui 
all its incoherence, all its inconsisten- 
cy, its incoodusivencss, everyone s . 

refusal to g&sp the nettle that sums, 
us up at the momenL” 

' Marqusee sees no inconsistent; 
between his politics and his love of 
cricket — “A lot of leftwingers, in- 
eluding me, are traditionalists in 
docket mattes’ of many kinds 
and he can easily imagine & national-. ; 
ized cricket in which entrance tickets 
would' be free, a lot more P®*?!"®’ 
would be able to play, women would . 
be- admitte d to the pavilion, and ev- 
eryone would wear white. 

He doesn’t play hhnsdTbut had he 
ihe gift he would Eke to be a left arm 
span-bbwler.“It*s the equivalent of a ' 

arewbaD pitcher or a cwve bafl pitch- 
er mbasebalL It’s a magician’s art. , 
From the start he was entranced 
by the game’s- timeless pace and mix- 
ture of grace and guile. He also likes 
the Ian that, except for fast bowlers, 

cricketers need not be super athletes. 

“You can be fat and be a good 
cricketer, lhaf scare of tfee-things I Eke 
about iL Since the ’80s there’s been 
tins thing of super-muscularity and 
scientific fitness, it’s killed tennis. In . 
cricket you get the short and the tad 
and the lean and the not so lean.” 

Like baseball,' cricket, is a symbol 
of lost innocence arid memories, false 
or .not, of the small town and the 

‘ -~-i — nit., w i. .bivt. 

to is the way cricket has been used as 
a vehicle for the national destiny and 
moral character. “It is distortion and 
it.doesnYdb the game any favors.” 
/ He uses as his epigraph “At the 
Ban Game^by WflEam Carlos Wil- 
liams, with its fast hues “all to no end 
save beauty /. the eternal . .. . ” 
That is also the way he sees cricket: 

‘Tfsjost a game,” he says. “Tt has 
no higher moral purpose than that.”
