Vietnamese 
In America 
Are Looking 
Homeward 


By Seth Mydans 

New York Tima Sen-ice 

DA LAT, Vietnam — She could not 
stop sampling the tropical fruits, the 
steamed snails, the candied plums. 
She was enthralled by the children, 
with their red scarves, trooping along 
the dirt paths to school Almost every 
conversation seemed to end in laugh- 
ter; she was home, and she was happy. 

"This is where I want to raise my 
family,” she exclaimed. 

Nearly 20 years after she fled the 
fall of Saigon with her parents. Camel- 
lia Ngo, now a thoroughly American 
28-year-old lawyer, has decided to re- 
turn to Vietnam. 

She is not alone. As one of the most 
dramatic refugee tides in modem 
times draws to a close, a new genera- 
tion of Vietnamese raised in the Unit- 
ed States is heading home in small but 
growing numbers to do business and 
sometimes, tike Miss Ngo, to stay on. 

With the lifting of the American 
trade embargo in February, as many 
as 10,000 Vietnamese a month are 
returning for visits to a country 
hungry for their cash but often suspi- 
cious of their Western ways. 

They are greeted by frequent ineffi- 
ciency, red tape and primitive working 
conditions, even while fen ding off a 
continuing backlash at home among 
many older refugees who oppose con- 
tacts with the Co mmunis t nation they 
fled. 

These homeward journeys, coming 
near the end of an exodus of some 
800,000 people to the United States, 
are a crossroads in V ie tnamese- Amer- 
ican relations. 

I Although there are no official esti- 
mates, Miss Ngo is a member of an 
; emerging new group, young Vietnam- 
* ese- American professionals who see 
Vietnam as a land of business oppor- 
. tunity as well as roots: the first opti- 
mistic generation of refugees, without 
the scars of war and loss their paren ts ; 
cany. 

“I know the image of Vietnam is 
always associated with war, but I was 
too young for those memories,” Miss 
Ngo said. "All I remember about my 
country is how beautiful it is.” 

Last month. Miss Ngo was on her 
second visit to Vietnam, negotiating 
projects for her Oakland law firm, the 
Miller Group, which is acting as a 
middleman for foreign investors. 

She was also preparing to take up 
residence here next year as her compa- 
ny’s representative, along with her 
Vietnamese- American husband. Mi- 
chad Nguyen, a mechanical engineer. 

“We want to do business here, but 
business is mainly our means of get- 
ting here,” she said as she sal at a tiny 
outdoor food stall in the small moun- 
tain dty of Da Lat, surrounded by the 
bustle and banter of the marketplace, 
eating a grilled banana sweetened 
with coconut milk. 

‘This is why Michael and I want to 
come back to Vietnam, to live the 
simpler life our parents lived,” she 
said. “We want our children to grow

PARIS — As government leaders pre- 
pare for the European Union summit 
meeting in Essen on Friday and Saturday, 
many leading business people fear that the 
politicians will fall to take action to make 
Europe more competitive and to tackle the 
jobs crisis. 

Corporate leaders worry that the meet- 
ing will produce more rhetoric than sub- 
stance. 

A common theme that emerged in inter- 
views with the top executives of Barclays 
Bank, IBM Europe, Imperial Chemical In- 
dustries, Mercedes-Benz, and Olivetti was 
that Europe's economic recovery risks 
making political leaders too complacent 

As a result, they said, governments may 
be less likely to push for urgent reform 
measures such as deregulating large 
chunks of their economies or slashing pub- 
lic spending to reduce budget deficits. 

“We are approaching recovery perhaps 
too soon, and this might dilute some ef- 
forts and take away some of the willing- 
ness and aggressiveness to tackle prob- 
lems,” said Helmut Werner, chairman of 
Mercedes-Benz. 

All of Europe’s governments share the 
problems of high unemployment, future 
pension costs and a lack erf competitive- 
ness with other parts of the world, said 
Martin Taylor, chief executive of Barclays 
Bank in London. Yet Mr. Taylor said he 
was worried that government leaders 
would not work for the huge structural 
adjustments that are needed “because the 
phase of the economic cycle has moved to 
a more benign one.” 

Sir Denys Henderson, chairman of Im- 


perial Chemical Industries of Britain, 
warned against “complacency based on 
recovery and growth." He added that 

First of two ankles 

“when things get easier, people back off on 
reform.” 

Sir Denys said he feared the Essen sum- 
mit meeting would be characterized by 
political posturing on issues such as ex- 




pan ding the EU to include Eastern Euro- 
pean members and the debate about feder- 
alism in Europe. 

Among the other themes stressed by the 
businessmen in interviews were these: 

• EU governments have not done 
enough to make the single market for. 
goods, services and capital a reality. 

• It will not be possible for Europe to 
create new jobs in the future unless EU

Latins Warm to NAFTA, but U.S. Cools to Expansion 


By Tod Robberson 

Washington Post Service 

SAN PEDRO DE LAS COLONIAS, Mexico - 
About six years ago, this windswept dust bowl of * town 
when tbelrraden.*] candidate 
Carlos Salinas de Gortari arrived to deliver his campargt 
m acM oft of economic reform, el im ination of trade bam- 
ersaal other measures to redirect Mexico s state-dnven 

me out of town." Mr._Salinas recalled 
recently. “They threw tomatoes at me. 

Today, San Pedro represai^ on ® of th« ® “K! 

that Mexican suDDorters of the North American Free 
Trade A^Sitrepeatedly cite. Employment is up, 
S^^ASoowned manufacturing plants 


are moving in, and hope and optimism are in the air. - 
When Mr. Salinas returned here in September to say 
good-bye as his six-year presidential term came to a 
close, the streets were so packed with supporters — tens 
of thousands erf them — that his motorcade was barely 
able to squeeze through. 

As NAFTA nears its first anniversary on Jan. 1, Latin 
American and Caribbean leaders are pressing for inclu- 
sion in the same trading bloc that appears to nave vastly 
broadmed Mexico's economic horizon and opened a 
new range of employment possibilities for its people. 

But even while leaders from around the region gath- 
ered in Mexico City to toast Mr. Salinas’s economic 
successes and welcome the newly inaugurated president, 
Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de Le6n, the United States ap- 


peared to be growing cooler by the day to expanding 
NAFTA-like trade ties farther to the south. The intense 
congressional debate about tariff lowering under the 
General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade served as a 
warning of what Latin American heads of state can 
expect from the United States when they gather at the 
Summit of the Americas in Miami on Friday and Satur- 
day. 

U.S. officials expect that at a minim u m, I -atin Ameri- 
can leaders will press President Bill Clinton to commit 
his administration to a firm Western Hemisphere trade- 
preference policy around which regional blocs can be 
established.

Clinton NATO Vision 
Leaves Yeltsin Cold 

Russia’s Mistrust of Expansion Plan 
Muddles European Security Talks 


Win McNamee/ReaM 


Presidents Boris N. Yeltsin of Russia, Bill Clinton and Leonid Kuchma of Ukraine and Prime Minister John Major of 
Britain signing the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty on Monday in Budapest during the European summit conference. 

Business Fears Complacency by EU 

Corporate Chiefo Say Recovery May Derail Essen Summit 


By Elaine Sciolino 

New York Times Servin’ 

BUDAPEST — President Bill Clin ion 
on Monday laid out his vision for the 
future of European security, but President 
Boris N. Yeltsin of Russia declared that 
NATO should not admit new members 
and that the United States should not be 
allowed to dominate the world. 

Mr. Yeltsin’s Cold War-era rhetoric, 
coupled with scornful denunciations by 
President Alija Izetbegovic of Bosnia 
about the world’s failure to end the war 
raging in his country, marred the opening 
of the two-day, 52-nation s ummi t meeting 
here. 

They also overshadowed a watershed 
event in the history of arms control, the 
formal accession by Ukraine to the Nucle- 
ar Nonproliferation Treaty, which will al- 
low for the implementation of the START- 
1 treaty and eliminate more than 9,000 
warheads of the United States and the 
former Soviet Union. 

The meeting was intended initially as a 
scat of headsHof-state love-fest to trans- 
form the unwieldy and powerless Cold 
War organization, known as the Confer- 
ence on Security and Cooperation in Eu- 
rope, into a more serious place for resolv- 
ing regional conflicts and preventing them 
from starting in the first place. 

In particular, the Clinton administra- 
tion had wanted the meeting to train the 
spotlight on an American initiative to 
speed up NATO expansion and strengthen 
the larger all-European group. 

But that was before the North Atlantic 
Treaty Organization decided not to launch 
air strikes to help protect the Bosnian dty 
of Bihac from Serbian attacks and before 
Foreign Minister Andrei V. Kozyrev of 
Russia embarrassed the United States and 
its European allies in Brussels last week by 
unexpectedly refusing to sign on to their 
Partnership for Peace plan for cooperation 
with NATO. 

On Monday, like a spoilsport at a family 
reunion, Mr. Yeltsin sdzed the moment to 
remind his European and North American 
partners gathered in the Budapest Conven- 
tion Center of Russia's preeminent role in 
making foreign policy on the European 
Continent. 

Obviously angered by the NATO deri- 
sion last week to begin defining the condi- 
tions for NATO membership, Mr. Yeltsin 
lashed out at those nations that would 
leave him out of what the Americans call 
“the new security architecture" for Eu- 
rope. 

“Why are you sowing the seeds of mis- 
trustr Mr. Yeltsin asked the 16 NATO 


nations about the prospect of increasing 
the alliance’s membership, adding that in 
the aftermath of the Cold War, “Europe is 
in danger of plunging into a cold peace." : 

In a thinly veiled criticism of what Rus-j 
sia perceives as the emergence of the Unit-| 
ed States as the only global superpower,] 
Mr. Yeltsin said, “History demonstrates' 
that it is a dangerous illusion to suppose: 
that the destinies of continents and of the] 
world community in general can somehow 
be managed from one single capital Blocs 
and coalitions can provide no security 
guarantees." 

Although the United States and its 
NATO partners insist that no European 
nations would be prevented from eventual- 
ly joining NATO, a point Mr. Clinton 
reiterated Monday, both NATO and Mos- 
cow know that Russia remains the per- 
ceived enemy in Europe and certainly 
would be at the bottom of the list. 

Mr. Yeltsin made that point about 
NATO expansion when he said, “We hear 
explanations to the effect that this is alleg- 
edly the expansion of stability just in case 
there are undesirable developments in 
Russia.” 

The hurried appearance of Mr. Clinton! 
at the opening of the two-day conference! 
did not bridge the expanding gap between; 
the two countries. 

“NATO will not automatically exdude 
any nation from joining,” Mr. Clinton 
said. “At the time, no country out- 
side will be allowed to veto expansion.” 

As for the broader European security 
group, Mr. Clinton said that it should be 
“our first flexible line of defense against 
ethnic and regional conflicts," adding that 
“by focusing on human rights, conflict 
prevention and dispute resolution, the 
CSCE can help prevent future Bosnias.” 

But Mr. Clinton did not define the struc- 
tural flaws in NATO and the security con- 
ference in connection with the tragedy in 
Bosnia. When Secretary of State Warren 
M. Christopher was asked to define those 
flaws in a news conference on Sunday, he 
spoke less about architecture than he did 
about the lack of political will. 

like Mr. Clinton, other heads of state 
and government, including Chancellor 
Helmut Kohl of Germany, President Fran- 
cois Mitterrand erf France and Prime Min- 
ister John Major erf Britain, called for a i 
settlement at the peace table as the only, 
way to end the Bosnian war. Although Mr. 
Clinton urged the summit meeting to act 
on “the lessons” of Bosnia,” neither be nor 
his European counterparts made any new

To Fight Police Harassment, 
An ’89 Activist Sues Beijing 


Compiled by Our Staff From Dispatches 

BEUING — A leading Chinese dissi- 
dent sued the government on Monday, 
demanding that a Beijing court halt what 
he described as intense police surveillance 
and stop security officials from following 

him- 

“Espetially in the last few days the po- 
lice have started following me everywhere, 
and really close behind me so that every 
one of my actions is affected," said the 
activist, Wang Dan, 25. 

The former student leader of the 1989 
pro-democracy demonstrations that were 
crushed by the army said he decided to file 
a lawsuit in a Beijing court to try to stop 
(he harassment. 

“They even follow me to the swimming 
pool and watch while I go swimming" said 
Mr. Wang who has been a freelance writer 
since serving a prison term for “counter- 
revolution.” 

Mr. Wang said he was unaware of a 
reason for the tighter surveillance, noting 
that he had not changed his daily activities 
and had made no attempts recently to 
contact foreigners or foreign reporters. 

In a sign that the police still are keeping 
a dose watch on Mr. Wang and tapping his 


phone line, the police called him just a few 
minutes after he told The Associated Press 
about the suit. They Later visited him in bis 
home and took a copy of the suit, Mr. 
Wang said. 

Mr. Wang’s suit is unlikely to even be 
considered by a Chinese court In recent 
years, other activists have sought court 
action to try to force the government to 
treat them Fairly under the law, whether it 
was to get a passport or to fight an arbi- 
trary job transfer. However, not a angle 
suit has been accepted for a court hearing 

The police last detained Mr. Wang in 
August, taking Him away for questioning 
for seven hours before releasing him. He 
had been held for 12 hours a few days 
earlier after the police seized him during an 
interview with American journalists and 
told him to stop complaining about the 
surveillance. 

“1 believe the Beijing Public Security 
Bureau is invading my right to privacy as a 
private citizen ana is hampering my right 
to personal freedom, and I am therefore 
appealing to the courts,” he said in his 
formal complaint. 

“I hope the court will decide according

across the desert plateau that includes the 
site of the three pyramids of Giza, one of 
the world’s most famous tourist destina- 
tions and also the home of the Sphinx. 
Critics say a land rush is sure to follow. 

The new highway, if completed as 
planned, will pass within about three kilo- 
meters (two miles) of the Giza pyramids. It 
violates both Egyptian law and an interna- 
tional convention protecting such globally 
significant sites, according to Said Zulfi- 


car, director of safeguarding activities of 
the cultural heritage division of the United 
Nations Educational, Scientific mid Cul- 
tural Organization. 

Other encroachments, he said in a tele- 
phone interview from Unesco headquar- 
ters in Paris, include high-rise buildings, 
housing projects, two garbage dumps, mili- 
tary barracks and a military factory 
“bdehing filthy black smoke.” 

“The problem is you turn a pristine 
desert archaeological site into an urban 
site Eke the Acropolis in Athens, which is 
surrounded by bufldmgs,” he said. “There 
will be hotels, restaurants, gas stations. It 
will lose its uniqueness.” « 

Haphazardly and often illegally built 
apartment houses already block the pyra- 
mids from view on the m am road ap- 
proaching from central Cairo. A warren of 
tourist shops sprawls to within a few 
hundred meters erf the Sphinx. 


The new road, a bypass route on Cairo's 
southern side, would, if eoqmjeted, cut off 
the last expanse of empty desert that re- 
mains contiguous with the Giza pyramids, 
which already are hemmed in by develop- 
ment cm two sides. Mr. Zulficar said that 
when he raised the matter with Egypt’s 
culture minister and other senior officials, 
they told him they were unaware of the 
intrusion and would consider options for

Russian Security Team 
Pressures the Chechens 


Compiled bv Ovr Staff From Dispatches 

GROZNY, Chechnya — 
Russia stepped up pressure 
Monday on Chechnya by flying 
three top ministers to a town 
near the rebel region's border 
and accusing its leaders of har- 
boring international terrorists. 

Defense Minister Pavel S. 
Grachev, Interior Minister Vik- 
tor F. Yerin and Sergei Stepa- 
shin, head of the counterintelli- 
gence service, flew to Mozdok 
in North Ossetia, an autono- 
mous region bordering Chech- 
nya in southern Russia. 

General Grachev admitted 
Monday that Russian jets had 
attacked airfields in Chechnya. 
He told the Itar-Tass press 
agency that the raids last week 
were carried out on airfields 
where aircraft that had bought 
weapons and mercenaries to 
Chechnya were parked. 

Russia had previously denied 
military involvement in the 
Chechen conflict, although 
Russian troops have been mass- 
ing near the mainly Muslim 
area that declared indepen- 
dence in 1991. 

in the regional capital, Groz-

leadership at the corresponding 
level,” Itar-Tass quoted Mr. 
Dudayev as saying. 

A Russian government infor-

ing him of turning Chechnya 
into a training ground for inter-

Italy to Probe How Liner Was Evacuated 


Compiled by Ov Staff From Dispatches 


ROME — Italy announced 
an official inquiry Monday into 
the fire that sank the Achille 
Lauro after some survivors 
complained that the cruise liner 
had been unsafe and that crew 
members scrambled for life- 
boats first 


“Their behavior left a lot to 
be desired,” said a survivor, 
Pauline Best 58, of Britain. She 
accused some crew members of 
abandoning elderly passengers 
in lifeboats as they scrambled 
onto rescue ships. 

Transport Minister Publio 
Fieri said the inquiry would try 
to establish what caused the 
blaze in the Indian Ocean and 


how the emergency had been 
dealt with. 

“We want to understand 
what happened — the reasons, 
the causes, how people be- 
haved,” Mr. Fiori said. 

*T also want to get a dear 
idea of how the owners behaved 
in assisting the evacuees. I’ve 
been (old that some thing s 
didn't work as they bad prom- 
ised they would.” 

Another passenger, Hille 
Stockmann, 68, said that the 
crew appeared to be inexperi- 
enced in launching the lifeboats 
and that the lifeboats them- 
selves “were an absolute scan- 
dal.” 


even a bucket to bail in case we 
took on water,” Mrs. Sieck- 
mann said. “There were no en- 
gines in some of them, no water 
to drink, no blankets, no noth- 
ing.” 


The ship’s owners. Naples- 
based StarLauro, have ngected 
claims that their emergency 
procedures functioned poorly. 

Survivors taken on rescue 
ships to the Red Sea port of 
Djibouti and Mombasa in Ke- 
nya have said the Achille 
Lauro’s alarm system failed.

ouse of Britain said in Momba- 
sa: “None of it worked. It was 
just buckets of water.” 

Survivors painted a scene of 
confusion following the out- 
break of fire in the engine room 
of the ship, which was built in 
1947. 

Some passengers said they 
owed their lives to the liner's 
cruise director, Nadia Eckhard, 
a South African, and her staff, 
who calmly shepherded passen- 
gers into groups to evacuate the 
blazing ship, while some crew- 
men scrambled for the first life- 
boats. 

Asked to comment on the re- 
ports, a StarLauro official Ser- 
gio Santapaolo, said the compa- 


ny had not received any 
complaints. “As far as we are 
concerned, everything was han- 
dled in the best possible way.” 

One of the Italian passengers, 
Sergio Panin, said the evacua- 
tion had been well managed. 
“Things were bandied proper- 
ly,” he said. 

Officials said 170 South Afri- 
cans, 66 Britons, 8 Americans, 7 
Germans and a handful of oth-

crew members, mostly Italians,

The Associated Pros 

KARACHI, Pakistan - The 
editor of a popular weekly po- 
litical magazine was killed by 
gunmen who ambushed him as 
he left his office, the police said. 

The police said they did not 
know who was responsible for 
the attack Sunday on Moham- 
med Salahuddin, editor of 
Takber, an Urdu-language pub- 
lication. Mr. Salahuddin, whose 
house was attacked and burned 
in 1991, wasa harsh critic of the 
Muhajir National Movement, 
an opposition group that repre- 
sents Muslims who migrated to 
Pakistan from India. 


ROME — The center-left 
swept four of six big Italian 
towns in mayoral run-off races, 
results showed on Monday, re- 
warding a new opposition alli- 
ance and sparking tension in 
Prime Minister Silvio Berlus- 
coni's coalition. 

The most notable coup for 
the center-left in Sunday’s elec- 
tions come in the northern town 
of Brescia, where a Former 
Christian Democrat leader. 
Mine Martmazzoll easily beat 
the Northern League industry 
minister. Vito GnuttL 

Mr. Martinazzoli enjoyed the 
backing not only of his own 
Popular Party, successor to Lhe 
scandal-tainted Christian Dem- 
ocrats, but also of the Demo- 
cratic Party of the Left, as the 
former Communists call them- 
selves, Italy’s biggest opposi- 
tion grouping. 

By contrast, the hard right 
National Alliance, an ally of the 
League in Mr. Berlusconi's six- 
month-old government, refused 
to endorse Mr. Gnutti. 

Opposition candidates also 
triumphed in the northern town 
of Sondrio, in Massa in Tusca- 
ny and in Brindisi in the south- 
east 


The coalition parties won 
narrowly in the Adriatic town 
of Pescara, while the League 
won convincingly in the north- 
eastern town of Treviso. 

Commentators said the re- 
sults indicated a route out of the 
political wilderness for the cen- 
ter-left following its defeat by 
Mr. Berlusconi's coalition in 
general elections in March. 


Washington Past Service 

VFT.TKA KLADUSA, Bos- 
nia — Croatian Serbian forces, 
firing t«nk and artillery shells 
every 45 seconds for at least 
several hours, blasted remain- 
ing Muslim positions in the 
northern Bihac pocket Monday 
and UN officials said they 
lieved the fall of the pocket's 
northern approach was near. 

Launching artillery, rocket- 
propelled grenade, mortar and 
tank attacks from three direc- 
tions, Croatian Serbian gun- 
men, manning batteries in Cro- 
atian Serbian territory and 
inside Bo snia itself, hit Muslims 
positions throughout Vetika 
Kladusa. 

Huge explosions rocked the 
area as Sexton tanks and how- 
itzers echoed throughout the 
hilly zone: Lacking heavy weap- 
ons, the M uslims fought back 
with small arms. 

Croatian Serbs have taken 
enough of the territory that they 
began the first steps toward re- 
installing Muslim renegade 
Fikret Abdic to power. On 
Monday, Mr. Abdic made his 
first public appearance inside 
Bosnia since Muslim govern - 
.ment troops quelled his upris- 
ing in August. Mr. Abdic, tht 
biggest chicken Tanner in the 
former Yugoslavia, led a rebel- 
lion against the Sarajevo gov- 
ernment for more than a year. 

LIN officials said the re- 
newed fighting indicated that 
the Croatian Serbian army has 
decided to throw more armor at 
the remaining Muslim defend- 
ers in the northern section of 
the Bihac enclave in an attempt 
to return Mr. Abdic to power 
and begin the process of con- 
necting Croatian Serbian terri- 
tory to Bosnian Serbian turf via 
the roads and rail link bisecting 
Bihac. 

“They don’t want to talk — 
they want td kin,” said one UN 
officer in the region, who was 
monitoring the fighting from 
Croatian Serbian territory. 

A UN spokesman said the 
UN mission bad received re- 
ports that Serbs were using in- 
cendiary shells and had torched 
numerous houses in Vdika Kla- 
dusa in an attempt to bum out 
the last of the pro-government 
Muslim fighters. Blazes illumi- 
nated the night as the Serbian 
assault raged. 

“It’s an indication of the fe- 
rocity of the fighting,” said Paul 
Risley, a spokesman for the UN 
Protection Force. “It is mali- 
cious damage.” 

Mr. Risley said UN military 
officials have noticed more 
Croatian Serbian artillery head- 
ing toward the battleground, 
leading them to conclude that 
the end was near f or Vetika 
Kladusa. 

In the south and west of the 
pocket meanwhile, the Bosnian 
Serbs, allies to the Croatian 
Serbs, also kept up the pressure 
on the Muslims, but at a re- 
duced rate, UN officials said. 
Clashes persisted between them 
and Muslim forces near the 
Grabez plateau and around the 
town of Bihac.

Party Joins Japan Opposition Bloc 


TOKYO (AP) — In another step in Japan's political transfor- 
mation , a Buddhist-backed party ended its 30-year history Mon- 
day by dissolving itself to join a united opposition. 

Like all opposition groups except the Communists, the centrist 


Clean Government Party has agreed to join in the inauguration of 
the New Frontier Party on Dec. 10 to challenge the government of 
Prime Minister Tomiichi Moray ama. 

Most national legislators in the Clean Government Party will 
join the New Frontier Party. Party members in local legislatures 
wifi stay separate from the New Frontier Party and form a new 
party. The Clean Government Party was founded in 1964 as an 
official arm of the Buddhist lay organization Soka Gakkai. They 
officially separated in 1970. 


Spain Keeps Up Gibraltar Controls 


MADRID (AP) — Spanish authorities said Monday that police 
controls that have caused long delays in traffic to and from 
Gibraltar would continue as part of a crackdown on drug- and 
cigarette-smuggling from the disputed Rode. # 

Gibraltar officials criticized the Spanish police action last week, 
saying it was a political move prior to the annual British-Spanish 
talks on the status of Gibraltar. 

Foreign Minister Javier So lans Madariaga and his British 
counterpart. Douglas Hurd, are to meet in London this month for 
the ninth round of annual talks since both countries agreed in 
November 1984 to discuss issues involving Gibraltar.

TRAVEL UPDATE 


Where Britons Care Least to Visit 


LONDON (Reuters) — British tourists rate India and Vietnam 
among the most dangerous places to visit, and many are still 
paranoid about traveling to Florida, according to a survey re- 
leased Monday. 

Fifty-nine percent of 1,000 people questioned in October said 
they were afraid of going to India and Vietnam, and 41 percent 


said they would be worried about traveling to Florida. “Publicity 
about plague in India and isolated incidents of kidnapping and 
murder in other countries seems to be brin g in g out the paranoia in 
British holidaymakers,” said Sarah Joannides, deputy underwrit- 
ing manager for the trayel insurance company Home & Overseas, 
which conducted the poll. 

Colombia, Cuba, Israel and Bolivia were also high on the list of t* 
destinations considered as dangerous, while Hong Kong, Greece, 
Japan, Australia and New Zealand were considered among the 
safest countries to visit. 

Fnturoscope, a high-tech theme park near Poitiers, France, will 
no longer close during the winter, joining Euro Disneyland as a

century, "the golden age" of commercial Liverpool. (AFP)

Bentsen Will Leave 
Treasury in Early ’95 


Abortion Foes Take Heart in Tally for New Congress 


By Keith Bradsher 

. N*" *’«* Tima Seme c 

WASHINGTON — Trea- 

MS told President Bill Clinton 
™ he wants to step down 
soon, although the two men 
have not yet agreed on the tint- 
administration officials 
said Monday. 

In a series of discussions that 
began before Election Day Mr 

Bentsen has told Mr. Clinton 
thw he is not prepared to stay in 
office through 1996 and that he 
believes someone else should 
replace him before the next 
round of budget struggles be- 
gins later this winter, the offi- 
cials said 

While Mr. Bentsen might 
stay for a couple more months 
u asked to do so by the presi- 

fte 1 * ’ s un]ikeI y 10 remain in 
office any longer, they said. 

Mr. Bentsen said before a 
speech Monday afternoon on 
; j trade policy that recent specula- 
• tion on his departure was pre- 
mature. 

“When I have more informa- 
tion, I’ll let you know,” he said. 

Robert E. Rubin, the assis- 
tant to the president for eco- 
nomic policy and the head of 
the National Economic Coun- 
cil, has emerged as the leading 
candidate to replace Mr. Bent- 
sen. The only serious concern 
that at the White House about 
moving Mr. Rubin has been the 
difficulty in replacing him on 
the National Economic Coun- 
cil, said the officials, who spoke 
on condition of anonymity. 

An administration official 
speculated that Mr. Rubin 
might end up running both 
agencies, much as Henry A. 
Kissinger once ran the National 
Security Council and the State 
Department. 

But Otl^r officials riismk«»ri 
this idea, saying that the Na- 
tional Economic Council's role 
as an honest broker in policy 
debates would be crippled if it 
were closely identified with the 
Treasury Department. 

Mr. Bentsen’s departure 
would represent a political set- 
back for the president, the offi- 
cials said, becanse Mr. Bentsen 
V 5 more influence and experi- 
ence in working with congres- 
sional Republicans than any 
other senior administration of- 
ficial 


Unlike other administration 
officials with congressional ex- 
perience, such as Leon EL Pa- 
fletta, the White House chief of 
staff. Mr. Bentsen served in the 
Senate and had the experience 
of working on the minority side 
when the Republicans con- 
trolled dial chamber from 1980 
to 1986. 

Even administration officials 
accustomed to putiing the best 
possible face on bad develop- 
ments were unable to portray 
Mr. Bentsen 's departure in a 
good light on Monday. 

“If you could only have one 
person on your side in an eco- 
nomic debate, most people 
would have chosen Secretary 
Bentsen,” said Gene Sperling, a 
deputy assistant to die presi- 
dent for economic policy.

1 Washington Post Service 

WASHINGTON — Abortion foes gained at 
least 39 House seats and fire Senate seats in the 
November elections, according to groups on 
both sides of the issue, giving them a majority 
or near-majority in Congress on many abortion 
questions. 

“The pro-life side had its biggest victory in 
the history of the movement,” said Representa- 
tive Christopher H. Smith, one of the chairmen 
of the House anti-abortion caucus. 

Although abortion may be secondary to the 
Republican “Contract With America," which 
focuses heavily on economic, tax, welfare and 
congressional procedure reform, the New Jer- 
sey Republican said abortion foes had an excel- 
lent chance io roll back administration policies 
or existing laws and regulations that Republi- 
cans view as fostering abortion. 

In what abortion opponents assert was a bow 
to the election results. President Bill Clinton 
barred the use of federal funds for creating 
human embryo cells outside the body to be 
used for research purposes — on the very day. 
Friday, that a panel recommended guidelines 
for canying out such research. 


Although the embryo issue does not involve 
abortion in the sense the word is normally 
understood — terminating a pregnancy — 
abortion foes consider it lo be a “right to" life” 
issue involving deliberate destruction of a po- 
tential human life. 

“It crosses a line that is barbaric,” Mr. Smith 
said. “We’re creating human life for the sole 
purpose of experimenting on 1 l” 

The anti-abortion measures envisioned bv 
Mr. Smith, the National Right to Life Commit- 
tee and the Family Research Council include 
locking such an embryo cell research ban into 
law, as well as: 

• Cutting off funds for international family- 
planning organizations that abortion foes con- 
tend use public funds directly or indirectly lo 
work for legalization of abortion in foreign 
countries. Senator Jesse Helms offered such an 
amendment last year, but it lost. 

Sources said that now, as incoming chairman 
of the Foreign Relations Committee, the North 
Carolina Republican is likely to bring it up 
again. 

• Barring federal support for research on the 
use of transplanted tissue from aborted fetuses 
to allay the effects of Parkinson’s disease. 


• Continuing or broadening restrictions on 
Medicaid-financed abortions, which are al- 
lowed only to save the life of the woman or in 
cases of rape or incest. 

• Restricting research and sale of the abor- 
tion pill RU-486. 

• Barring federally funded family-planning 
groups from counseling young women that 
abortion is an option. Opponents call this the 
“gag rule.” 

• Barring the Federal Employees Health 
Benefits Program. U.S. military hospitals over- 
seas and the District of Columbia (even if using 
its own money) from providing abortions. 

“All of it’s on the table,” Mr. Smith declared. 

Some groups also favor action to modify 
restrictions on demonstrations against abor- 
tion clinics. 

But House Republican leaders have not sin- 
gled out abortion for priority action in the 
104th Congress, and any votes engineered by 
Mr. Smith and other anti-abortion forces prob- 
ably will not come for months. 

“We will absolutely oppose them.*’ said Ann 
Lewis, vice president or Planned Parenthood of 
America. “They want to eliminate the right to 
choose.” 


Kate Michelman, president of the National 
Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action 
League, acknowledged: “They did pick up a lot 
of votes." 

She predicted that Republicans were not 
going to announce anti-abortion legislation as 
a major goal but she added: “I do think they’re 
going to assault the freedom to choose.” 

She vowed strong opposition to that agenda. 

According to a league analysis of the election 
results, the 103d Congress contained a core of

POLITICAL NOTES 


Gingrich Called ‘Rec k less* 

WASHINGTON - The Clinton ad- 
ministration denounced as untrue and 
“reckless” on Monday an assertion by 
Representative Newt Gingrich that up 
to one-fourth of the White House staff 
used illegal drugs in recent years before 
joining the administration. 

The White House chief of siatT. Leon 
E. Panetta. said, “we cannot do business 
with the speaker of the House who is 
going to engage in these kind of un- 
founded allegations.” 

Mr. Gingrich made the claim on Sun- 
day in a broadcast interview, saying: 
“It’s very clear that they had huge prob- 
lems getting people through security 
clearance.” On Monday. House Repub- 
licans elected Mr. Gingrich to be speaker 
when the party takes control of the 
chamber in January. 

Mr. Panetta, when asked whether use 
of drugs at some point in the past would 
have disqualified someone from serving 
in the Clinton White House, replied that 
it would not, “any more than it was an 
automatic disqualification for Newt 
Gingrich to be speaker." Mr. Gingrich. 
51, has acknowledged smoking marijua- 
na as a graduate student more than two 
decades ago. (AP, Reuters ) 

Travel Office Indictment? 

WASHINGTON — A lawyer for Bil- 
ly Dale, the former head of the White 


House travel office, said that he expect- 
ed federal prosecutors to seek an embez- 
zlement indictment against Mr. Dale 
this week, charging him with stealing 
S69.000 in money paid by news organi- 
zations for presidential trips. 

Steven Tabackman, Mr. Dale's law- 
yer. said his client would plead not guilty 
to the charges, which are likely to revive 
an embarrassing issue that created a fu- 
ror when it erupted in May 1993 and left 
a powerful impression of White House 
bungling on ethical matters. 

“No one who has worked with Billy 
Ray Dale or had any contact with him 
either personally or professionally dur- 
ing the 3 1 years that ne served the "White 
House and the media believes for an 
instant that Mr. Dale embezzled a cent 
from the travel office,” Mr. Tabackman 
said. 

Mr. Dale, 57, began working at the 
White House in 1957 and became bead 
of the travel office in 1982.

More Base Closings Coming 

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon is 
preparing to begin another major effort 
lo shut unneeded military bases, with 
signs that this one will be the biggest — 
and by far the most painful — such 
effort in recent history. 

Defense Department strategists be- 
lieve that the coming round of base dos- 
ings. in 1995. may be the most crucial of 
all. In drawing down the Cold War mili- 


tary, the Pentagon has slashed the total 
number of troops, but it has not reduced 
the infrastructure — bases and depots — 
as shaipiy. 

Pentagon budget-makers fear that un- 
less the services get rid of large numbers 
of those unneeded bases this lime, they 
will be stuck with hefty overhead costs 
that will leave them unable to channel 
funds into critical weapons systems and 
modernization programs. 

Moreover, as the generals are painful- 
ly aware, the next round may well be 
their last chance. Congress authorized 
base-closing efforts in 1988, 1991 and 
1993 and may not be willing to approve 
another one. 

Robert W. Gaskin, a former Pentagon 
strategist, points out that the pain in the 
coming round is likely to be exacerbated 
by the fact that “all the easy choices have 
been made.” 

Planners hi all four services are pre- 
dicting that the list of bases that the 
services will propose for dosing in 1995 
is apt to be the biggest ever.

Moscow’s Asian Arms Bazaar 

Danger Seen in Spread of Military Technology 


By Michael Richardson 

Intcnutwnal Herald Tribune 

SINGAPORE — Aggressive 
sales in Asia by makers of Rus- 
sian-designed arms are likely to 
become a continuing source of 
friction between the West and 
former members of the Soviet 
bloc, especially Russia, as they 
compete for orders in the 
world's fastest-growing military 
market. 

Western officials and ana- 
lysts warn that the increasing 
commercial rivalry is hastening 
the spread of advanced weap- 
ons and technology in Asia, and 
may ultimately lead to a dan- 
gerous arms race in the region. 

Following the purchase of IS 
MiG-29 fighters from Russia in 
June on very favorable financial 
terms, Malaysia is testing the 
Russian-designed T-72 tank 
and may soon place an initial 
order for more than 60, Malay- 
sian officials said Monday. 

The relatively low-cost tanks, 
manufactured under license 
from Moscow, would probably 
come from Poland or Slovakia, 
they said. 

China, India, Smith Korea 
and Indonesia have all shown 
strong interest recently in Rus- 
sian-designed military equip- 
ment, whidt is generally much 
less expensive than comparable 
Western weapons. 

Asian nations assert that 
wider access to military equip- 
ment and technology will pro- 


vide much-needed moderniza- 
tion of their defense capability 
and increase stability in Asia. 

But “cut-price transfers of 
advanced combat aircraft and 
main battle tanks could alter 
the balance of power in particu- 
lar regions," said David Muss- 
ington, a former defense scien-

tist in the Directorate of 
Strategic Analysis of Canada's 
Department of National De- 
fense. 

He said that over the long 
term, the transfer of Russian 
production technology could be 
much more important than 
weapons sales in die global 
spread of military power. 

In its latest annual strategic 
survey, the London- based In- 
ternational Institute for Strate-

result of the rapid diffusion of

Pentagon Plans to Destroy 
Re maining Napalm Stocks 

The Associated Press 

FALLBROOK, California — Twenty years after the Viet- 
nam War, the government is planning to dispose of its last 
stocks of napalm, the sticky, fiercely burning weapon. 

More than 35,000 aluminum canisters containing 10.4 
million kilograms (23 million pounds) of napalm are soon to 
be removed from the Fallbrook Naval Weapons Station, 
where they have sat in wooden crates for two decades. 

Officials of the Southern California center plan a public 
hearing next month to brief the public on the latest disposal 
plan. Past attempts to remove the napalm failed for various 
reasons, including a lack of money. 

“This time we think we have a belter handle on it," said a 
spokesman for the Naval Ordnance Center. 

The navy plans to hire a contractor to extract the napalm 
from the canisters for use as fuel in loins at cement-making 
plants around the country, the spokesman said. The process, 
which is scheduled to begin within two weeks, could take up 
to five years and cost more than S24 million. 

Napalm was dropped in bombs from aircraft and used in 
flame throwers. 


ous tensions with their neigh- 
bors and are increasingly free of 
the constraints imposed by 
Euro-Atlantic arms exporters." 

Mr. Mussington said recent 
Russian sales to China had. led 
to the transfer from Russia of 
production facilities for the ad- 
vanced Su-27 fighter and SA-10 
surface-to-air missiles, as well 
as Russian technical assistance. 

He said that Russia and its 
former Soviet-bloc allies, anx- 
ious to expand aims exports to 
earn hard currency ana offset 
falling military orders at home, 
were “vulnerable to the same 
cost pressures that afflict West- 
ern arms producers, as evi- 
denced by the feverish activity 
of Russian defense enterprises" 
in Aria and elsewhere in the 
developing world. 

Mr. Mussington said that 
Russian weapons previously 
unknown to Western intelli- 
gence agencies, such as theR-73 
air-to-air missile, were appear- 
ing for sale to developing coun- 
tries even before they were ac- 
quired by the Russian military. 

Following the breakup of the 
Soviet Union and its defense 
industries, Russian arms ex- 
ports to developing countries 
plummeted to $13 billion in 
1992 from just over $14 billion 
in 1988, according to a study by 
the U.S. Congressional Re- 
search Service in Washington. 

In the same period, U.S. mili- 
tary exports to the Third World 
rose to $133 billion from $10 
billion, while British exports 
nearly trebled to $2.4 billion 
and French exports more than 
doubled to S3.8 billion. 

Gennadi Chufrin, deputy di- 
rector of the Institute of Orien- 
tal Studies at the Russian Acad- 
emy of Science in Moscow, said 
that Russia's share of global 
arms sales fell to “a mere 11 
percent" in 1992, from 37 per- 
cent in 1989. 

“It is little wonder then that 
practically all major political 
parties in Russia have displayed 
a rare unanimi ty in calling on 
the government to actively pro- 
mote arms exports to restore 
positions with traditional buy- 
ers of Soviet-Rusrian weapons, 
and to explore new markets." 

Mr. Chufrin said that Mos- 
cow would expand arms sales to 
Aria, including China where it 
would supply T-72 tanks, C-300 
surface-to-air missile systems , 
and jet fighters, among them 
“most modem variants" of the 
MiG-29 and MiG-31.

U.S. Judges Seek to Limit Caseload 


Net* York Tunes Service 

WASHINGTON — A panel 
of federal judges is proposing 
new limits on access to federal 
courts for Sods! Security bene- 
ficiaries, victims of job dis- 
crimination and consumers, as 
pan of a long-range plan to 
cope with huge increases in the 
cakdoad. 

If recent trends continue, the 
judges said, the federal courts 
will be inundated with civil and 
criminal cases. The crime bill 
>assed this fall for example, 
extended federal jurisdic- 
tion to a new range of crimes. 

The report says there are al- 
ready signs of "impending cri- 


pass 

has 


ris" and predicts that the prob- 
lems will grow steadily over the 
next 25 years. 

By the year 2020, the judges 
estimate, more than a mfllion 
new cases will be filed each year 
in federal district courts, up 
from the 281.740 in the year 
that ended June 30. 

“Numbers alone do not ade- 
quately capture this frightening 
picture," the report said. To 
handle the anticipated case- 
load, even assuming some in- 
crease in judicial productivity, 
would require more than 4,000 
judges, up from the current to- 
tal of 846, the report says. With- 
out hiring new judges, delays 


would grow intolerably. 

With so many judges, the re- 
port says, it will be difficult to 
maintain the coherence and 
consistency of federal court de- 
cisions. 

“Federal law would be Babel 
with thousands of derisions is- 
suing weekly and no one judge 
capable of comprehending the 
entire corpus of federal law, or 
even the law of ids or her own 
circuit,” it says. 

After hearings, a final version 
of the repent will be submitted 
in March 1995 to the full Judi- 
cial Conference, which is ex- 
pected to accept most of the 
recommendations.

Sew York Times Service 

NEW DELHI — When 

Kiran Bedi was named warden 

of India's largest and mast no- 
torious prison, a job considered 
a professional graveyard, many 
of hex critics shed crocodile 
tears. 

The assertive Miss Bedi a 45- 
year-old Punjabi has ruffled 
many a feather since becoming 
India's first policewoman 23 
years ago. 

Now, 18 months alter taking 
the prison job. Miss Bedi ~ 
who was once women's tennis 
champion of Aria — has staged 
a scrambling comeback. In- 
stead of getting bogged down in 
the corruption and violence as- 
sociated with the New Delhi’s 
Tthar prison, she has pushed 
through reforms that have be- 
gun to change its reputation. 

Miss Bedi's popularity has 
ban fostered by the education- 
al and recreational activities she 
has brought to the prison, as 
well as by the pressure she has 
put on judges to adopt more 
liberal bafl policies. With more 
than 150.000 prisoners awaiting 
trial in India’s jails while courts 
work ponderously through a 
huge backlog, it is not unusual 
for accused people to serve 
more time awaiting trial than 
the maximum term they would 
face if convicted. 

When 711181*5 9,700 inmates 
were told that she had been 
awarded one of Aria's most 
coveted public service awards 
this summer for her work there, 

man y inmat es — who range 

from prisoners awaiting trial to 
convicted murderers awaiting 
execution — broke into danc- 
ing. 

But many of the politicians 
and police superiors Miss Bedi 
has crossed in hex career are 
more likely to have reacted with 
a gnashin g of teeth. 

While she has been celebrat- 
ed by many in India as the ar- 
chetype of India's new career 
women, she is deeply resented 
within the still overwhelmingly 
male police force. More than 
one effort has been made to 
check her rise by assigning her 
to jobs considered dead ends. 

Her assertive style was dis- 
played on a tour of Tihar. Strid- 


ing across the prison yard, she 
punctuated her remarks with ■ 
d isp aragement of the estab- 
lished ways of Indian politics, 
particularly the dose bonds be- 
tween powerful politicians and 
the poUce hierarchy. - 

Ail three major national po- 
litical parties invited Miss Bedi 
to run as a parliamentary candi- 
date in the last general election 
in 1991. She roused, and rite 
says she has not Cha n ged hoc 
zniad. “When I look at our poli- 
tics, I don’t see ethics at all" 
she said. “Here at Tihar, I have 
power with ethics, so why sub- 
stitute it for a world where I 
would end up with neither?" 

At Tihar, where she is the 
first woman to serve as warden, 
her philosophy of rehabilitation 
is at odds with the prison’s re- 
pressive reputation. Thepem- 
tentiary, built to serve Britain’s 
c olonial rulers in the 1880s, is r 
four prisons grouped together* 
behind 30-foot walls, with sepa- 
rate sections for men and wom- 
en. The jail is heavily over- 
crowded. 

On her tour of the prison 
yard. Miss Bedi chatted easily 
with prisoners. Several times, 
her progress was halted by pris- 
oners shouting “Madam! Mad-, 
am!" — followed by an plea for 
help in obtaining bail or a 
speedier trial. 

In the prison yard, Gerald 
Victor interrupted the literacy 
class he was teaching to step 
forward. The 38-year-old one- 
time businessman was awaiting 
trial on a charge of disposing of 
a pistol used to kill a prominent 
lawyer. The maximum penalty 
for that offense is three years in 
jafl, and he had been there for 
40 months awaiting trial “Let’s 
go to legal aid," she said. “This 
man does not belong here." 

With the lithe buQd and 
cropped bur of an athlete, and 
a preference for loose trousers 
and long shirts instead of saris, 
Miss Bedi has prompted criti- 
cism from traditionalists who 
say she has aimed her bade on 
traditions of In dian woman- 
hood. Supporters regard her as 
a champion of women’s emart 
dpation. She rebuts both view? 1 

“I like to think that what at- 
tracts attention to me is my 
work, not my gender," die said.

predicted 
not attack Russia. Still a legend 
[mined: Dulles the spymaster. 

ha 1950, Dulles, at the age of 
57, was appointed deputy direc- 
tor of plans for the young CIA. 
Three years later, he ascended to 
the post of CIA director. In these 
positions, he defined the intelli- 
gence system of the United 
Slates, He fancied political war- 
fare — coup-making, propagan- 
da, political fronts — and this 
activity, despite the objections of 
others in the CIA and the gov- 
ernment, became a priority for 
the service. Intelligence collec- 
tion — Dulles’s strong suit as an 
OSS man — received less atten- 
tion in his CIA than the fun and 
game. A large and insular bu- 
reaucracy grew under him, even 
though he irnnsdf hated such 
Structures. And within this cul- 
ture a dubby atmosphere devel- 
oped, one that protected malfea- 
sant and less-thas-stellar 
officers. After CIA officers 
dipped LSD to an unsuspecting 


American 

causing his suiode, Dulles issued 

the slightest of reprimands to 
those responsible- No one in the 
chib would suffer. 

Modi of the second half of 
“Gentleman Spy" covers turf 
already well-traveled in the lit- 
erature of intelligence: the CIA- 
choreographed coups in Iran 
and Guatemala; the develop- 
ment of the U-2 plane ; tie 
procurement of Nikita Khru- 
shchev's 1956 anti-Stalin 
speech (Dulles later called this 
“one of the major coups of my 
tour of duty," but the CIA was 
handed the speech by the Israeli 
intelligence service); the anti- 
Castro Bay of Pigs debacle of 
1961, and the now all- too famil- 
iar assassination operations 
against pesky socialist leaders 
of tibe developing world. 

A bit frustrating is the reluc- 
tance of Grose, a former New 
York Times reporter, -Foreign 
Affairs editor and State Depart- 
ment official, to confront fully 
the sense of elitism and self -righ- 
teousness that imbued Dulles 
and bis comrades. The “Park 
Avenue cowboys,” be writes, 
“were highly intelligent and n 
deeply motivated to do the pub- 
lic good." Dulles and his like- 
minded colleagues were blinded 
by their own hubris. They be- 
lieved that because they woe 
gentlemen they could do dirty 
deeds for causes they deemed 
just, that the world was theirs to 
fiddle with — and in secrecy. 
“Gentleman Spy” does sot re- 
write the history of this set, but it 
does remind us that the distance 
between a self-proclaimed gen- 
tleman and a deceitful plotter is 
not always that far.

INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1994 



Good morning. Want to be here tomorrow? 

- -Here’s a little something we- learned. Success is not 
the result of spontaneous combustion. 

You must set yourself on fire. 

If your competition does 50 push-ups, you do 51. If 
they go the extra mile, you go the extra 10. If they are fast, 
be faster. If they are smart, be brilliant. If they have the 
bigger hammer, you have the sharper nail. 

Don’t solve problems, anticipate them. Don’t promise 
results, get them. Treat every challenge as an opportunity 
in work clothes. 

Know that well done is better than well said. That it is 
not just the hours you put in, but what you put into the hours. 

Let others dream of worthy accomplishments. That’s 
okay. You stay awake and do them. Believe you can’t be beat 
and you won’t be beat; that there is plenty of room at the 
top. But not enough to sit down. 

It’s easy to put these words down on paper. At Digital, 

we’re putting them into practice. 

Whatever it takes. Not fancy words. Just real ones. 

Mission-critical marching orders for everyone. From 


our president to the person who turns the lights off very 
late at night.. . ' ' 

Today, Digital is working as never before to be the 
company you rely on to implement networked platforms 
and applications in heterogeneous environments. 

Today, we are working hard to do it quicker and more 
cost-effectively than anyone else. 

Simply put, today we are working to make ourselves 
indispensable to our customers. 

And you will begin to see tangible examples of that 
effort every day at Digital. 

Whatever it takes does not mean that we will compete 
unfairly or bend the rules; that ethics and integrity will be 
sacrificed on the altar of profits. 

It does mean that we will go to the nth degree to win 
your business. And keep your business. It means we will 
play tough. But fair. 

We intend to go as far as guts and talent and vision will 
take us. And share the benefits with you along the way.

or reach us via our Internet address: moreinfo@digital.com.

Be President 


The Clinton adminis tration’s shell- 
shocked first response to the election re- 
turns was full of the wrong questions. 
They had to do with image rather than 
substance, as if the business of being 
president were a kind of con. How should 
the president try to reposition himself, 
was the instant quay. What kind of new 


or the less liberal ones? Which (if any) 
former presidents should he emulate? 
Should he prepare to cooperate with the 
Republican Congress or set the political 
stage to run against it? 

Now, however, if only by virtue of the 
calendar and the press of business that 
can't be ignored, reports from the White 
House suggest that some grittier ques- 
tions are asserting themselves. That 
could be good news, for the country and 

E resident alike. It's old-fashioned, we 
now, but what the president could do, 
if he chose, is decide on the merits what 
national policy ought to be — what he

But the “Contract with America” is ex-

functions of government while shifting 
enormous burdens to the states. It goes 
too fart the president can and ought to 
make the argument for a balanced alter- 
native. Balanced in that sense does not 


mean weak; to the contrary.

for it as best he can, and let that detine 
him. First make the wine and only then 
design the label. How’s that for a revolu- 
tionary proposition? 

It shouldn’t be all that difficult The 
president could adopt as a model his own 
first year. The immediate issue then as 
now was the budget Bill Clinton had to 
decide what to do about the deficit — 
whether and how far to try to drive it down 
—and then how to fir within that goal the 
rest of what he wanted to accomplish. 

■ In that year, wisely, in our view, he 
chose not a temporizing but an aggressive 
compromise, a set of measures that not 
only reduced the deficit but left a little 
money over to finance the mostly modest 
spending increases he called investments. 
He should pursue the same mix of objec- 
tives again — not the exact same mea- 
sures. which can’t be repeated, but the 
same broad pattern, which can. It has the 
advantage of being the right thing to do, 
good policy and, because iL is good poli- 
cy, conceivably even good politics, too. 

- The deficit will turn back up again in a 
year or two if the president and new 
Congress don’t act to suppress it. For the 
sake of future generations they should 
keep the fiscal pressure on. but do it 
responsibly. In the House particularly, 
the Republican majority-to-be would 


money he would need? There is hardly a 
shortage of ideas or possibilities. Step up 
the means- testing of entitlements (in- 
cluding Social Security and Medicare; 
the math doesn’t work if you leave them 
out). Begin to raise the retirement age. 
Tighten the eligibility rules in some pro- 
grams. Toss out tbe likes of the dairy 
price supports, which are dysfunctional 
anyway. Impose some new limits on tax 
breaks. Toss out some more discretionary 


spending. Does the country really need a 
Small Business Administration or an 
Amtrak subsidy or a special low-income 
home heating subsidy atop the rest of the 
aid the government gives the poor? 

Mr. Clinton should go first, propose 
some serious, specific budget cuts but at 
tbe same time — novel notion — defend 
the legitimacy and importance of other 
things that government does that ought 
not be cut There is plenty of room for a 
forceful, responsible proposal Let some- 
one else decide where that puts him in the 
great, confused and pointless war of po- 
litical left-to-right labels. 

No, a single budget won't redefine an 
entire administration. And it won’t ad- 
dress tbe whole array of organizational 
weaknesses and personal and political 
bad habits that have landed Mr. Clinton 
and his presidency in so much trouble 
and that desperately need attention, too. 
But it’s not a bad place to start.

The Obesity Gene 


The identification of a genetic flaw 
that seems to cause obesity in mice, and 
possibly in humans as welt caused rip- 
ples of excitement when it was an- 
nounced last week. The finding holds out 
the dazzling hope that scientists may, 
eventually, come up with a drug treat- 
meat to help overweight people shed un- 
wanted, unhealthy pounds. But don’t 
count on the discovery changing your 
life any time soon. Any treatment is said 
to be five to 10 years away. And the field 
of genetic disease is littered with false 


taut, known as the ob gene. In two strains 
of obese mice, the ob gene was found to be 
defective, suggesting mat when it malfunc- 
tions, it causes obesity. The researchers 
hypothesize that tins gene, acting only in 
fat cells, normally produces a protein that 
circulates through the blood to reach the 
part of the brain that controls appetite. 

When a large number of fat cells churn 
out a large amount of the protein, the 
brain tells the body to reduce food intake. 
Unless, of course, the gate malfunctions. 
In that case the brain will be fooled into 


hopes gone unrealized. 
It is humbling to rec« 


It is humbling to recall the excitement 
that greeted past announcements of ge- 
netic defects associated with alcoholism. 


thinking there is not enough fat in the 
body and will encourage the intake of 
even more food. The gene probably con- 
trols long-term food intake, not the hour- 
by-hour changes in appetite that deter- 
mine when one feds hungry. 

That all sounds plausible, but scientists 
have a long way to go to prove iL Thus far 
they have simply found the defective gene 
in mice that are obese. Now scientists 
must show that the protein the ob gene 
produces does in fact circulate in the 
bloodstream and that when injected into 
an animal with the genetic defect, it win 
cause a weight loss. Once they do that, 
there will be real cause for excitement. 

Even then, there is no guarantee that 
the same effects would be seen in humans. 
The shimmering hope is that, if a faulty 
satiety signal triggers obesity, scientists 
may be able to administer the missing 
satiety protein to patients, much as diabe- 
tes is treated with insulin injections. 

But obesity in humans is apt to be 
much more complicated than obesity in 
mice, with multiple genes and hormones 
involved, and many behavioral factors as 
well. It may be hard for scientists to find 
a single magic bullet. 

So keep your fingers crossed. And keep 
up the diet and exercise.

and other ailments. Only later did scien- 
tists realize that, they had misidentified 
the gene or else had no idea how it oper- 
ated, and thus no idea bow to devise a 
treatment. Still, there is some reason to 
hope that the new gene discovery might 
be an exception. Thai is because there is a 
long history of research in physiology 
and biochemistry that points in the direc- 
tion of the new finding. 

Scientists have long hypothesized that 
body weight is regulated by a feedback 
mechanism that keeps weight near a par- 
ticular set point They have also done 
experiments suggesting that some factor 
circulating in the bloodstream tells the 
brain when to raise or lower food intake 
and energy metabolism. If an obese 
mouse is surgically attached to a thin 
mouse, for example, the obese mouse will 
lose weight, apparently responding to a 
substance in the blood of the thin mouse. 

At least five mutant genes are thought 
io be involved in obesity in mice. What 
scientists at Rockefeller University in 
New York City have now accomplished is 
the isolation of one of tbe most impor-

What Taiwan Voters Want 


; The election in Taiwan was seen by 
many as a test of the Kuomin tang’s pro- 
unification stance and the Democratic 
Progressive Party's advocacy of Taiwan 
independence. It was and it wasn’t The 
Kuomin tang did use the emotional “China 
will attack if Taiwan declares indepen- 
dence” ruse to its fullest This had some 
effect with the less well-informed elector- 


ate in rural areas; in Taipei it did not work. 
It is thus dangerous to interpret the results 
as an outcome for or against indepen- 
dence. A more fair and open debate on the 
issue is needed before far-reaching candu- 
sions can be drawn on what the people 
want If they want independence, this 
needs to be respected by China and recog- 
nized by the international community.

acknowledged, from which the authors 
would nonetheless exempt Social Security

The way the so-called interna-

Bosnia reproduces the League of 
Nations* ha n dl i n g of the Italian 
invasion of Ethiopia in 1935 and 
1936 and, in a somewhat different 
respect, the British-French treat- 
ment of the Czech crisis of 1938. 

When Italy invaded Ethiopia, 
the League imposed economic 
sanctions cm the aggressor, but at 
the same time the British and 
French tried to negotiate a settle- 
ment with Mussolini. The sanc- 
tions, limited to certain products, 
were too mild to hurt Italy. 

The British-French plan con-

Mussolini, but public opinion in 
England killed iL Mussolini went 
on to conquer all of Ethiopia. 

The international community 
made the mistake of simulta- 
neously pursuing two incompati- 
ble policies: collective security 
against aggression, and a negoti- 
ated compromise between parties 
that were treated as morally equi- 


valent The hope of reaching a 
compromise kept the resort to col-

tained pretty much all he had de- 
manded. His only “concession" 
was to refrain from seizing by 
force what the British and the 
French were willing to offer him. 

The Clinton administration be- 
gan by condemning the Vance- 
Owen plan of early 1993 as a 
sellout of Bosnia. Now it seems 
ready to concede to the Bosnian 
Serbs both the right to confeder- 
ate with Serbia — to form what 
■would be the Greater Serbia of 
President Slobodan Milosevic’s 
dreams — and the right to remain 
in control of all the territory they 
have seized by force until they 

obtain satisfactory constitutional 
arrangements from the Bosnian 
government AH of this, offered 
behind the backs of the Bosnian 
authorities, would be conceded in 
exchange for the Serbs’ wiQing-

Are there differences between 
the situations? Weren’t the two 
crises of the 1930s conflicts be- 
tween states, whereas Bosnia is a 
civil wax? 

Some had tried to characterize 
Italy’s invasion of Ethiopia as 'a 
legitimate act of colonial expan- 
sion. As for Hitler's dismantling 
of Gxchodovaloa, many chose to 
see in it an intervention on behalf

been sabotaged by the Bosnian 
Serbs’ decision to form a “repub-

The relations between Serbia 
and the Bosnian Serbs faithfully 
reproduce the relations between 
Nazi Germany and theSudeten- 
Iand. The only real difference is 
that President Milosevic does 
not have Hitler’s power and 
global ambitions. 

But can we be sure that Serbia’s 
nationalists will be satisfied? A 
victorious Serbia could spread vi- 
olence to .Kosovo or to Macedo- 
nia or Albania. There is still the 
danger of a major international 
crisis in the Balkans, provoking a 
showdown between Russia and 
NATO, a split between the West- 
ern powers and Greece, and in- 
creasing tensions between Western 
Europe and the United States.

W ASHINGTON — Mexico has a new

move from dictatorship to democracy with- 
out first plunging the country into anarchy. 
Unfortunately, the United States isn't help- 
ing ease the transition. By pushing Mexico 
to fully embrace dramatic democratic re- 
forms m the short run, Washington may be 
helping to ensure the triumph of dictator- 
ship, or worse, in the long run. 

signs of stability were in short supply as 
Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de Leon began a six- 
year term on Dec. 1. The secretary-general 
of the governing Institutional Revolution- 
ary Party (PRI) was murdered in Septem- 
ber. Mr. ZediDo would not be president but 
for tbe assassination of the party's first 
candidate. And the rebellion in the southern 
state of Chiapas shows signs of reigniting. 

Mr. Zedillo is caught between the United 
Stales (and many Western-educated intel- 
lectuals in Mexico) pushing for a decentral- 
ization of power and the dinosaurs in his 
own party who are not above using violence 
to maintain their grip. So far he has veered 
toward those urging quick democratization. 

He has pledged to make the PRI indepen- 
dent of the government and to devolve fed- 
eral powers to the states. But by doing so he 
will be giving up the very powers necessary 
to ensure Mexico's democratization. 

That is Mr. Zedillo’s catch-22. Funda- 
mental change in the PRI and in the role of 
Congress means surrendering his power to 
keep Mexico calm through a mixture of

patronage and authoritarianism, it is a reci- 
pe for resistance, reaction and violence. 

There is another way. It is the way of Mr. 
Zedillo's predecessor, Carlos Salinas. Mr. 
Spinas followed the Asian model: good 
economics before good politics. He used Ms 
status erf being above the law to dismiss 
more than half of the country’s state gover- 
nors. But during his reign the budget was 
balanced, triple-digit inflation came down 
to a manageable 7 percent, and most state- 
owned companies were privatized. As a re- 
sult, Mexico has a burgeoning middle class 
and, through the North American Free 
Trade Agreement, much closer ties with the 
United States and Canada. 

Today Mr. ZedElo faces problems and 
opponents even more formidable than those 


confronted by his predecessor. He needs to 
create a safety net for the tens of millions of 


create a safety net for the tens of millions of 
Mexicans still living in poverty. He needs to 
radically restructure a corrupt judicial and 
legal system. But fiisu he must face down 
those who have amassed huge personal for- 
tunes based on ties to the PRL 

He must also contend with the Zapatista 
rebels in the south and the narco-criminals 
in the north, whose profits from moving 
drugs into the United States each year are 
estimated to be more than twice the total 
revenues of Mexico's petroleum industry. 

To deal with this unholy triumvirate, he 


will need to wield more power — not less. 

The United States has much at stake. 
Mexico is now its second largest trading 
partner, after Canada. Mexico is also its 
greatest source of illegal aliens and drugs — 
problems that wifi only get worse if condi- 
tions become less stable. And the U.S. rela- 
tionship with Mexico can set a pattern for 
relations with the burgeoning democracies 
elsewhere in Latin America, many of which 
are clamoring for inclusion in NAFTA. 

What should Mr. Zedillo do? Take a page 
out of his predecessor’s playbook. In his 
first 100 days. Mr. Salinas attacked the 
corruption that was at the heart erf Mexico's 
economic problems. He arrested the gang- 
ster head of the oil workers’ union, the top 
executive of Mexico’s largest brokerage 
house, and a major drug trafficker. Tint 
asserted Ms authority and gave him the 
breathing room for his economic reforms. 

President Zedillo, too, should go after 
Ms enemies. He must face down toe anti- 
democratic element within the PRI, pursue 
and arrest the leading drug dealers, and tell 
the Zapatistas that he will treat them fairly

North Korea: Washington Has Some Hard Selling to Do at Home 


W ASHINGTON — It was a 
few weeks ago. in the Green 


YY few weeks ago, in the Green 
Room of NBOTV’s “Meet the 
Press.” James Carville, due on 
next, squirmed in his seaL On the 
screen m front of us. Madeleine 
Albright, the Clinton administra- 
tion’s diplomatic bulldog, was 
telling interviewer Tim Russert 
why the United States had just 
agreed to guarantee energy sup- 
plies for North Korea. 

“Paid for by South Korea and 
Japan! Paid for by South Korea 
apd Japan!” I hear Mr. Carville 
chanting in a stage whisper. The 
president’s political adviser is try- 
ing to beam to the president’s UN 
ambassador a selling point for the 
administration’s controversial nu- 
clear deal with Pyongyang But 
Ms telepathy doesn't connect. 

“Tell ’em Americans won’t 
have to pay for iL" Mr. Carville 
mutters with growing dismay as 
Mrs. Albright plows ahead with 
strategic and diploma tic justifica- 
tions and ramifications. 


By Jim Hoagland 


Mrs. Albright is considered by 
hear media-savvy colleagues to be 
the best television foreign policy 
spokesman the administration 
has, in part because she resolutely 
refuses to commit nuance. She 
steams into each answer as if it 


were illegal to hold another point 
of view. But in the holding room 


of view. But in the holding room 
where Mr. Russert stashes bis 
program’s waiting guests, Mr. 
Carville frets about the ambassa- 
dor missing out on tbe politics of 
selling tbe North Korea deal. 

Fret he should. It is not imme- 
diately obvious to heartland 
America why North Korea is be- 
ing rewarded with two nuclear 
reactors worth 54 billion for hav- 
ing agreed conditionally on Ocl 
10 to abandon, slowly and grudg- 
ingly, the nuclear weapons it has 
been developing — in defiance 
of international guarantees that 
Pyongyang had already given. 

Mr. Carville’s instinct is right 


The Clin ionites have some heavy 
selling to do. 

North Korea's government is 
isolated. Stalinist and economi- 
cally crumbling. A lew months 
ago it was listed as a “backlash 
state,” an appellation the Clinton 
administration awards only to a 
half-dozen certified stinkers of 
the earth such as Iraq, Libya and 
Cuba. But as part of the Ocl 10 
deal, the United States has agreed 
to lift its trade, investment and 
diplomatic barriers with North 
Korea, while getting South Korea 
and Japan to pay for two new 
Western-style nuclear reactors 


for Pyongyang. 
South Korea 


South Korea initially gagged 
on a deal that if completed will 
save the hostile North Korean re- 
gime from collapse. But it has 
slowly come around to support- 
ing the U.S.-brokered accord, for 
lack of a better alternative. That 
is likely to be the path followed 


by the rest of us as wdl, including 
the Republican majorities that 
wifi now control Congress. 

The administration maintains 
that it does not have to submit the 
agreement to Congress for ap- 
proval and intends to avoid votes 
on the floor of Congress by find- 
ing the up to SIS million the Unit- 
ed States has to shell out (for oil 
shipments and other interim en- 
ergy costs for North Korea) from 
already appropriated funds. 

That strategy avoids having to 
face in partisan debate three 
broad questions that pose big 
problems for senior administra- 
tion officials: (1) Do they really 
believe that North Korea has 
ceased being a backlash state and 
should therefore be trusted? (2) 
Why did Kirn Jong H do the deal 
now? (3) Won’t it serve as an 
incentive for other backlashets to 
pursue nuclear weapons programs, 
to get bought off by the united 
States if for no other reason? 

A Stalinist state depends on an 


external threat to justify its reign 
of terror. If die threat does not 
exist, tbe state invents it, or pro- 
vokes it by belligerent acts. That is 
what North Korea has done for 
decades. For this deal to work, the 
dictatorship in Pyongyang wifi 
have to change its very nature. 

Privately, U.S. officials say the 
economic and political conces- 
sions bong offered the North are 
in fact poisoned bonbons. To get 
the goodies, Pyongyang has to 
open up the system and the coun- 
try so much that the harsh Com- 
munist rule of today will be worn 
away. South Korea’s leaders have 


accepted the deal because they be- 
lieve that tbe regime in the North 
will have been transformed into a 
nonthreatening entity before the 
agreement is fulfilled 

American officials concede that 
they do not have any strong intelli- 
gence on why Kim Jong D decided 
to take the American offer a few 
months after the death of his fa- 
ther, Kim II Sung, and before he : 
himself was officially installed in 
power. Nor do these officials pie-, 
sent hard and fast reasons why tbe 
United States could not have held 
out for faster and more certain 
ways of shutting off the nuclear 
weapons development program. 

The latter point is likely to be 
the strongest line of attack by the 
Republicans, who are in the com- 
fortable position of having a live 
target to shoot at withouthaving 
to destroy it and accept the re- 
sponsibility for what would fol- 
low. Thar attacks are likely to 
make Mr. Carville squirm a tot 
more before this saga is finished.

Taiwan: A Successful Exercise in Smart Democracy 


H ONG KONG — Taiwan 
elections have the outward 


X A elections have the outward 
appearance of what is worst 
about democracy and the inner 
strength of what is besL There is 
high -decibel rhetoric, some vote- 
buying and occasional (but non- 
faial) violence. And a clear but 
sophisticated message to the con- 
tending parties — and to Beijing. 

So it proved again on Saturday, 
when 70 percent of eligible voters 
cast ballots in a range of contests, 
the most important bring those 
for governor of Taiwan Province 
and mayors of Taipei and Kao- 
hs iu ng , the principal cities. 

The elections were more im- 
portant than those contests 
-would suggest. By taking place at 
all they reflected the continued 
political evolution of Taiwan. 
And they were seen to foreshad- 
ow 1996, when Taiwan wifi elect 
its president for the first time. 

The ruling Kuonrintang pre- 
vailed in the most important con- 
test, for the governorship of Tai- 
wan, and its mayor in Kaohsmng 
was re-elected. But it lost the may- 
oralty of Taipei to the candidate of 
the Democratic Progressive Party, 
or DPP, which advocates Taiwan- 
ese self-assertion and ultimately 
independence. The Kuomin tang 
in fact came in third there, behind 
the candidate of the New Party, a 
purist breakaway erf the KMT that 
is critical of money politics and 
suspicious of what it sees as Kuo- 
mintang pandering to Taiwanese 
remonaiist seatimenL 

What conclusions are to be 
drawn from this exercise in de- 


By Philip Bowring 


mocracy by 20 million ethnic Chi- 
nese living in Taiwan? 

• First, popular participation 
was immense, as reflected in elec- 
tion rallies, media coverage and 
voter turnout. Money still played 
some part, but with the major con- 
tests concentrated on a few candi- 
dates with huge constituencies, it 
played a much smaller role than in 
earlier elections, when vote-buying 
by local bigwigs was common. 

The election was a rebuff to 
those who insist that Taiwan’s 
democracy was brought about by 
pressure from Washington and 
not by struggles in tbe late 1980s 
led by the DPP. 

• Second, the results show a 
general endorsement of the mid- 
dle-of-the-road agenda adopted 
by the Kuomin tang under Presi- 
dent Lee Teng-hui on matters re- 
lating to mainland China; name- 


Kuomintang and 39 for the DPP. 
• Third, the Taipei defeat of the 


• Third, the Taipei defeat of the 
Kuomintang showed the voters’ 
willingness to differentiate be- 
tween national and local issues. In 
the capital voters protested cor- 
ruption and incompetence in the 
city administration. People of 
mainland origin, a larger propor- 
tion of the population in Taipei 
than elsewhere, are disillusioned 
with the Kuomin tang’s pro-Tai- 
wanese drift. Middle-class critics 
of the KMT may be reluctant to 
vote for the Democratic Progres- 
sive Party, which sometimes ap- 
pears nativist and rabble-rousing. 

The net result was that the DPP 
got 44 percent; tbe New Party 
candidate, a respected former 
Kuonrintang minister. Jaw Shau- 
kang. 30 percent; and the KMT 
incumbent, only 26 percent. 

But despite its setbacks, the 
Kuonrintang bestrides the center 


short of blockade, that Beijing 
can bring to bear on Taiwan. Chi- 
na relies on Taiwanese-owned 
factories at least as much as Tai- 
wan looks to China as an outlet 
for exports and a source of labor. 

Taiwanese voters may like the 
occasional brawl, and they cer- 
tainly want recognition. But the 
latest election results suggest that 
they have a strong grip on their 
own self-interest.

were entirely Truman’s doing. Some 
came in response to world events. It 
was the sudden withdrawal of British 
support from Greece and Turkey in 
1947 that led to the Traman Doc- 
trine; the Soviet blockade of Berlin in 
June 1948 that inspired the airlift. 
Nor should General Marshall’s im-

Truman was the first to stress.

From his diary entries and private

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Bosnia Fmger-Pointiiig 

Regarding the report “ Bosnia 
Fighting Rages as Allies Point Fin- 
gers ” (Nov. 29): 

After all the mutual recrimina- 
tions, it has been the European ap- 
proach to the war in ex-Yugoslavia 
that has prevailed. 

While the United States may have 
wanted to do more with NATO air 
power and to lift the arms embargo, 
the Europeans vetoed those ideas. 
Whether they would have worked 
will never be known. Similarly, 
while the French and British may 
point to U.S. refusal to commit 
ground troops, it is difficult to be- 
lieve that the addition of, say, 10,000 
American troops acting as mere ob- 
servers of determined Serbian ag- 
gression would have made a differ- 
ence. The European approach was 
not to deter or prevent aggression, 
but merely to soothe the results of it. 
The stark fact is that it is this policy 
and this policy alone that has 
brought the situation in ex-Yugosla- 


via to its present state of affairs.

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 absolure 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 by those who are 
very difficult to please; 
those who will only accept 
the best. For the day that 
you take delivery 7 of your 
Patek Philippe, you will have 
acquired the best. Your watch 
will be a masterpiece, quietly 
reflecting your own values. 

A watch that was made to 
be treasured.

For his part, Mr. izetbegovic, 
whose country is gripped in a 
war that has left more than 
200.000 dead or missing, un- 
leashed a vitriolic attack rarely 
heard at such diplomatic gath- 
erings and vowed that his sol- 
diers would fight to the bitter 
end. 

“What shall be the result of 
the war in Bosnia, which is now 
being prolonged due to a mix- 
ture of incapability, hesitation 
and sometimes even til-will of 
the West?” Mr. Izetbegovic 
asked the other leaders. “The 
result shall be a discredited 
United Nations, a ruined 
NATO, Europeans demoral- 
ized by a feeling of inability to 
respond to the first crisis after 
the Cold War.” 

He painted a picture of what 
he called a different world as a 
result of the European and 
American failure in Bosnia, “a 
worse world in which the rela- 
tions between Europe and the 
U.SkA., the West and Russia, 
and the West and the Muslim 
world shall never again be the 
same.” 

Mr. Clinton, whose trip to 
Budapest initially was opposed 
by his domestic political advis- 
ers, appeared eager to avoid any 
encounter that could have en- 
tangled him in substantive and 
potentially contentious discus- 
sions. 

He spent only seven hours on 
the ground and did not conduct 
a full-scale meeting with Mr. 
Yeltsin except for brief ex- 
changes on the margins of the 
arms control ceremonies.

a caricaturist's idea of Donald 
Duck in horn-rims and likes 
bull sessions with AJ Gore, the 
workaholic whose idea of lei- 
sure is watching soccer games 
and the Tour de France bicyie 
race — this earnest figure 
comes out of the phone booth a 
contender, a man who gets 
mad, ridicules his rivals, speaks 
ringingly about his vision of 
France. 

His political autobiography 
has a plot perhaps best summa- 
rized as follows: Mr. Deiors 
goes to Brussels and gets 
mugged by the real facts behind 
Euro-scleforis. 

Once a Socialist, economist 
and internationalist. Mr. Defers 
has been convened to the belief 
that there is no substitute for 
free markets, political action is 
the key to national destiny and 
French leadership is the only- 
hope for European unity. 

This conversion of Mr. De- 
iors from Eurocrat to patriot 
does not exactly leap off the 
pages of his book, which offers 
lew populist concessions be- 
yond a jacket photograph of 
Mr. Deiors with unnaturally 
bright blue eyes — a gift from 
his publisher who has a way 
with special effects. Most of the 
time, arcane references clog the 
prose until it reads like the 
Maastricht treaty — which, in- 
cidentally, Mr. Defers says that 
he deemed badly crafted even 
when he was promoting it 

At present, such pungent di- 
rectness emerges mainly in 
smallish gatherings of his sup- 
porters, sessions with other 
French leaders or private 
events. 

On one recent such occasion. 


a score of guests, including No- 
bel-winning scientists, publish- 
ers, academics, lawyers, jour- 
nalists and a movie director 
who said that he had never vot- 
ed before, milled around Mr. 
Defers in a private room at a 
Paris restaurant for a pre-pran- 
dial drink. On cue, a tapestried 
wall dropped silently through 
the floor, so guests could move 
next door to the dinner table. 

It was a four-course seminar. 
With the fig leaf of privacy. Mr. 
Deiors can be withering: 
French politicians, he says, are 
hiding the truth from voters 
who are deeply unsure about 
Europe and themselves. 

His analysis — summarized 
by intimates since Mr. Deiors 
did not spell it out — centers on 
a paralyzing French fear of re- 
united Germany's growing 
power. As a result, France is 
regressing into narrow chauvin- 
ism. a paranoia liable to be- 
come self-fulfilling prophecy. 

To break this vicious circle. 
France must bank on a more 
deeply integrated European 
Union. Mr. Defers says, quickly 
adding that it can be largely 
shaped to French designs on 
condition that Paris sacrifices 
enough sovereignty to make 
unity credible in German eyes. 

German politicians, who 
gave Mr. Deiors more backing 
in Brussels than French leaders 
did, make no secret of their 
hope that Mr. Deiors will beat 
out his conservative rivals, all of 
whom are less pro-European. 

Accusations that he is “Ger- 
many’s candidate” are part of 
the image Mr. Deiors would 
have to dispel in order to win 
election. In a nation shifting to 
the right, Mr. Delots insists that 
a strong state is needed to cor- 
rect social tensions. 


This vision of big problems 
and big solutions often sounds 
similar to the views of candi- 
date Bill Clinton, one of the 
rare leaders whom Mr. Deiors 
seems to admire warmly. At 
least momentarily, he has run 
up a lugger lead than Mr. Clin- 
ton ever had in 1992. Since his 
book’s publication last month, 
opinion polls have started 
showing that a majority of 
French people want him to be 
the next president 

Mr. Delors’s political 
strengths come partly from his 
sterling integrity in a scandal- 
racked age, partly from the 
prostration of the French So- 
cialists. He shows no affection 
for his old parly, but the Social- 
ists desperately want to rally 
behind him. In contrast the 
French right is spliL 

The only credible blueprint 
for an effective Defers govern- 
ment hinges on the chance that 
many center-rightists would de- 
sert conservative ranks to work 
with Mr. Deiors because of 
their shared commitment to Eu- 
ropean unity. 

Mr. Deiors could then pro- 
mote his personal vision of 
strengthening the French state 
in areas where it can alleviate 
social tensions and yet abolish- 
ing state control in the economy 
— for example, privatizing tele- 
communications and other in- 
dustries that are still able to 
compete internationally. 

That crossover would juggle 
the French political landscape 
as the centrist parties pulled 
Mr. Deiors to the right. The 
prospect makes Mr. Deiors a 
candidate, not just for the presi- 
dency, but for the history 
books.

plateau is protected under the 
1972 World Cultural and Natu- 
ral Heritage Convention, of 
which Egypt is a signatory. 
Egypt asked that the plateau be 
listed under the convention in 
1979, Mr. Zulficar said. 

On a tour earlier this month, 
Mr. Zulficar found that the 
highway cuts through the pro- 
tected zone, a strip of desert 
that encompasses both the Giza 
plateau and the lesser-known 
Dahshour pyramids about 27 
kilometers to the south. Con- 
struction now is nearing the im- 
mediate area of the Giza pyra- 
mids. 

“I was horrified to see what I 
saw,” he said. “The thing is 
practically finished. It's in total 
violation of the world heritage 


convention they signed; it's is 
violation of Egyptian law.” 

Although the government 
has yet to make public a map of 
the sew road, “there already are 
private homes going up” along 
the completed portion, Mr. Zul- 
ficar said. “They’re expensive 
homes. The people who knew 
where the road was going 
through obviously were buying 
land. In no time it will become 
an urban site.” 

Zahi Hawas, who directs ar- 
chaeological activities at the 
Giza pyramids, said the bypass 
road was approved by the 
Egyptian Antiquities Organiza- 
tion in 1984 after a survey 
found no archaeological ruins 
in its path. He added, however, 
that he was not involved in die 
decision and hopes it can be 
reversed in light of the rapid 


development that already is oc- 
curring in the area. 

“It's in downtown Cairo,” be 
said of the Giza pyramids. “It's 
all high buildings, six floors. 
You can't really see the pyra- 
mids. This was the only hope — 
to leave the south side free.” 

Mr. Zulficar said the antiqui- 
ties organization appeared to 
have rushed approval for the 
road project after only the most 
cursory of archaeological sur- 
veys. The archaeologist who 
carried it out, be said, was in- 
structed to make test borings at 
intervals of no less ifem 300 
meters, was given no labor to 
hdp him and was told to com- 
plete the project in a week. 

“We think there are 1 1 pyra- 
mids still under the sand” in the 
area traversed by the highway 
route, Mr. Zulficar said.

Tories Recoil as U.K. Taboo Is Broken 


By Fred Barbash 

Washington Pat Sertice 

LONDON — A leading opposition 
member of Parliament broke a taboo 
Monday by proposing a re-engineering 
of the monarchy. 

Jack Straw, the Labor Party’s shadow 
Home secretary, a high post within the 
opposition, set off a noisy partisan argu- 
ment by suggesting that the number of 
people entitled to be called His or Her 

Royal Highness be reduced from 40 to 20 

and that tfce whole institution be stream- 
lined on the order of the monarchies of 
Scandinavia, where kings and queens 
ride around on bicycles. 

Mr. Straw's views, not to mention pro- 
posals for abolition of the monarchy, 
have become common in Britain, espe- 
cially since the beginning of the long 
running breakup of the marriage of 
Charles and Diana. And in recent years, 
the queen, acknowledging the disquiet, 
has voluntarily shed perquisites of office, 
such as the royal yacht Britannia. 

But for anyone with a real opportunity 
for high elected office, such opinions are 
rarely uttered in public. 

The ruling Conservative Party imme- 
diately seized on Mr. Straw’s comments 
to accuse the Labor Party of trying to 
destroy the United Kingdom. Despite 
objections from the speaker of the Par- 
liament, Betty Boothroyd, they injected 


it Monday into a Commons’ debate on 

the budget. , , .. 

The government’s national heritage 
secretary, Stephen Dorrell, said, if the 
pageantry were scaled down, the first 
thfeg to be hit would be our tourism 
earnings, never mind our national re- 

SP Meanwhile, Labor Party officials went 
into tbe damage control mode, stressing 
that Mr. Straw’s views, taken from a 
transcript of a BBC television program 
to be aired Monday night, were not offi- 
cial party policy. 

In Britain’s political system, a shadow 
secretary is the opposition s designated 
combatant against his or her government 
counterpart as well as the person most 
likely to take over the job in the event of 
victory at the polls. 

The Home secretary is the highest pro- 
file domestic office of the British govern- 
ment and the formal link between the 
queen and the public in a number of 
matters. 

Mr. Straw, a longtime critic of ine 
institution of the monarchy, told the 
BBC that trimming the monarchy would 
strike a blow against Britain’s ”very hier- 
archical class system.” 

He said that a Labor government un- 
der its party leader, Tony Blair, would 
“hasten tbe process toward a more Scan- 
dinavian monarchy, a monarch symbol- 
izing a much more classless society.” 


“That doesn’t necessarily spell Acted 
of the monarchy, not for a Be 

said “But it does mean of couiy d^Uhe 
monarchy’s role wfll be redefined. : 

In fact, a Labor Party commission 
headed by Mr. Blair has proposed major 
^rational refonmfor BjtoBjU. 
Sesman for Mr. Blair stressed Mao- 
party has steered clear d any 
radical proposals for stripping down the 
monarchy. ■ . <

portrayed things otherwise. Taken 10- 
getber. Labor’s proposals for coostrtn-' 
tional change would produce ibe break- 
up of Britain,” said Home Secretary . 
Michael Howard in a BBC mtepew. 

“It's a matter of some regret that we 
need to have this debate, because the 
royal family have always been beyond 
politics,” Mr. Howard said. “But it does 
raise very fundamental questions indeed, 
and the most fundamental of aB is this: 
Are we proud of our history and our 
traditions, of our institutions, or are we 
somehow ashamed of them?” . 

What Labor wants to do, Mr. Howard -j 
said, is to play down the institutions and 

downgrade them. 

“And if you take the whole Labor 
package of constitutional reforms,” he 
said, “they add up to ^the breakup of 
Britain as we know it.”

• Bureaucratic red tape and 
other regulatory restrictions are 
holding back sizable potential 
investment plans across Eu- 
rope. 

• Domestic political consid- 
erations are distracting the 
leaders of Europe's most impor- 
tant economies at a time when 
closer cooperation on economic 
reforms is desperately needed. 

In recent days, Europe’s busi- 
ness leaders have made a point 
of communicating their con- 
cerns directly to both govern- 
ment heads and to Jacques De- 
iors and Jacques Santee, the 
outgoing and incoming Europe- 
an Commission presidents. 

Mr. Defers and Mr. San ter 
have met individually with 
business leaders and have re- 
ceived a delegation represent- 
ing the European Round Table, 
a grouping of heads of 40 of the 
Ell's biggest industrial compa- 
nies. 

In a recent report, tbe round- 
table called on £U leaders to 
establish what it calls a Europe- 
an Competitiveness Advisory 
Group, which would acz'.as a 
bridge between industry , and 
the Union and keep, competi- 
tiveness high on the EU policy 
agenda. 

The businessmen have told 
Union leaders that Europe is 
uncompetitive with other parts 
of the world in areas such as 
energy, telecommunications, 
the cost of capital, transporta- 
tion, and taxation regimes. 


For example, the European 
Round Table said energy mar- 
kets should be liberalized be- 
cause energy costs to industry 
are at least 30 percent higher in

Stales. 

Tbe cost of telecommunica- 
tions services in some parts of 
Europe is as much as 22 times 
that of the United States. 

Mr. Deiors has responded by 
railing for action on Europe's 
jobs crisis and trying to revive 
his year-old proposals — con- 
tained in a white paper on jobs 
and competitiveness — for ex- 
pensive trans-European road, 
rail and other infrastructure 
projects. But the businessmen 
are cool to make-work pro- 
grams, and Sir Denys warned 
against “spending the recovery- 
dividend on the wrong things.” 

Ludo Stanca, president of 
IBM Europe, and Carlo De 
Beoedetti. Olivetti's chairman, 
each offered specific examples 
of how the inadequate imple- 
mentation of single-market 
guidelines and excessive regula- 
tion were proving cosily to their 
companies. 

“The IBM organization is 
moving to a pan-European or- 
ganization." Mr. Stanca said, 
“but in some countries we have

Helmut Newton’s Cover-Up: No More Nudes 


By Suzy Menkes 

International UtrxM Tnburr 


— At the age of 
/4 Helmut Newton has 
taken a radical deci- 
sion: no more nudes 

images of naked women, starkly 
btack and while, in a Paris Left 
Bank gallery, “Mes demiere 
nus" (My Last Nudes). And 
Newton, who has dodged the 
flak from feminists for ]5 years 
over his so-called “porno-pho- 
tography," says that he sudden- 
ly has had a “strong reaction” 
against the exposed female 
body. 

“I think 1 have done 
enough,” he says. “Even when 
you see a lovely body or an 
interesting body, I don’t think ] 
am going to be seduced. 1 have a 

very strong desire to photo- 
graph women clothed from 


head-to-foot with hardly an 
* inch of flesh.” 

It may be a presdent decision 
from a controversial photogra- 
pher who has always been 
ahead of the trend. His sexually 
ambivalent images of the 1970s 
were precursors of fashion an- 
drogyny; his hard-edge bond- 
age and fetish references ulti- 
mately reached the runways. 


I am sorry for Guv Bourdin 

that he is not alive," says New- 
ton, referring to a fellow pho- 
tographer who died in 1991; 
Uieir twin influences gave 
french Vogue the stamp of 
fashion authority for two de- 
cades. 

What fashion pros describe 
as “very Helmut Newton” 
means images of Amazonian 
bodies (even before women 
worked out), pictures suggest- 
ing erotic relationships, often 
with voyeurs, and strange, un- 
settling scenarios, like the 1979 
photo of models in a steam bath 
while another woman is laid out 
cadaver-like in a herbal wrap. 

Newton says he is fascinated 
by images from the 1920s and 
1930s, especially the work of 
the Hungarian-bom photogra- 
pher Brassal and his low-life 
virions of Paris. 

I N a striking Newton im- 
age of 1975, a mannish 
woman in a Saint Laurent 
tuxedo poses in a mean 
street (another version had a 
nude beside her). It not only set 
the fashion agenda for the' an- 
drogynous 1980s, but also 
looked back to the Marlene 
Dietrich Berlin in the 1930s, 
where Newton spent his teen- 
age years, before his Jewish 
family fled Berlin for Australia.

claims. It is much more inter- references to fetishism, or in the 
estrng to work under certain re- symbolic monocle (even for 
stramts than to work masoa- QlKie s). Newton claims it origi- 
ety where anything is allowed, nated as a teenage crush on the

N for fashion. For 
Newton has signed a 
contract to work ex- 
clusively with American Vogue 
— 20 years after his images of 
louche, sexually predatory 
women first shocked the fash- 
ion-world. 

Since those images, especially 
the work with Yves Saint Lau- 
rent in the 1970s, are a current 
source of inspiration to young 
designers and photographers, 
Newton’s second flowering is 
also a double-take. A recent 
spread in a British magazine 
was a pastiche of the images of 
divine decadence that Newton 
'look on his favorite setting of 
Tvlonte Carlo Beach. (He lives in 
the principality with his wife, 
June, known as the photogra- 
pher Alice Springs). 

What does Newton think of 


monocled woman who worked 
with him at the studio of the 
photographer Yva, where New- 
ton was apprenticed at age 16. 
It could just as well be taken 
from the painting by Otto Dix. 

The first photographic shoot 
for American Vogue took place 
in Monte Carlo last Friday and 
featured that other Newton ob- 
session, with medical imagery. 
To create an ambience for a 
high-heeled shoes story, tower- 
ing model Nadja A nermann, 
with one leg in a plaster cast, is 
carried aloft by men or pushed 
in a wheelchair. Newton puts 
down such surgical obsessions 
to “my hypochondria.” His 
critics suggest it is part of his 
instinct to portray women as 

vic tims. 

“I am not going to defend 
myself,” says Newton, reciting 
the rhetorical question of why

Newton's warts-and-all pho-

shock. A jewelry spread last 
summer in French Vogue had 
wrinkled bands in Bulgari rings 
gutting the entrails of a chicken. 
He was inordinately pleased at 
the reaction.

“Terrorists” was the original 
title, because the inspiration 
for these life-size figures, 
stripped bare, came from see- 
ing pictures of Baader-Mem-

an adjacent room, Newton pre- 
sents “mutations,” distorted 
versions, when he re-photo- 


graphed the images on differ- 
ent planes to show dose-ups of 
genitals or breasts swelling 
from armless torsos. In- 
stead of the familiar sparkling 
water of Monte Carlo Beach, 
bodies float as if dissolving in a 
bath of add. The pictures are 
weird and disturbing. 

“You destroy what you 
love,” says Newton. “They are 
the last of the line."

International Herald Tribune 

P ARIS — When a new biography of Chris- 
tian Dior is “baptized” at the couture 
house Wednesday, two famous faces will 
be missing: Dior's elderly aster Cather- 
ine, who shared a sheltered bourgeois childhood in 
a flower-filled Normandy garden; and Jacques 
Routt, the genie of tiKConyan/s expansion from 
its foundation in 1946 until 19o4. 

The book’s “outing” of Dior as a homosexual 
although deBcatdy done, has appalled the tight- 
knit circle of people who still revere the master 
couturier, who died in 1957, a decade after his 
“New Look” revolutionized postwar fashion. 

Catherine Dior is also perturbed by what she 
feds is an unjust portrait of their mother as a 
social climber. Routt is concerned that a veil has 
been lifted on a private life about which Dior 
hiim«»1f was ultra-mscreeL 

To its credit, the house of Dior, now undo - the 

ownership of Bernard Arnault, has stood by 
author Marie-France Pochna, a French journd- 
ist and broadcaster. Arnault is tdlrng friends 
privately that he finds nothing shocking m 1994, 
£ discussing the life of a designer who died 37 
years ago — and in the context of a serious book 
♦hat presaats Dior as a marketing pioneer as well 

as a creative spirit 

fa “Christian Dior” (Flammanon), the effect 
of Pochna’s infamous “outing is rather to en- 
hance Dior's stature, because site places him m 
rustic milieu of the 1920SjWhen he was part 
of a quasi-Bobexnian circle that included Jean 
Cocteau and Christian Berard. 

Thr hook oortrays the family as less than the 
Ed^Sdian idyll t£t Dior himself suggested. 


(One brother had Bolshevik leanings and anoth- 
er was mentally disturbed). Yet Dior, obliged to 
earn his living after his father was ruined in the 
1930s crash, cranes out as more astute and inter- 
esting than the marshmallow portraits previously 
painted. 

In the same week as this literary strain in a 
thimble, the Lyon-based “University de la 
Mode” announced a new annual prize for a 
fa shi on book, in French and in a foreign lan- 
guage. It may have trouble malting a short list 

The good news is that an extensively re- 
searched “Dictkranaixe de la Mode au XXe Ste- 
ele,” or fashion encyclopedia of the 20th century, 
edited by Bruno Remauxy, was published by 
Editions du Regard this fall Most fashion books, 
funded by the designers themselves, are gush and 
puff, with self-oongratulatory texts filling the 
(small) space between lavish pictures. 

Even serious authors who have had the co- 
operation of a fashion house may find them- 
selves frozen out if the results do not please ( Eke 
the biography of Saint Laurent by journalist 
Laurence Benalm, which was ultimately ignored 
by the bouse). 

Nobody wants fashion biographies to focus 
only on the private side — like the recent unau- 
thorized “Obsession: The Life and Times of 
Calvin Klein,” which tells all about homosexual 
parties on Fire Island in the 1970s and little 
about the designer's contribution to fashion. But 
an artist expresses himself in his work, and it 
helps to know about the man behind the myth.

BRUSSELS — The Europe- 
an Union on Monday declared 
its 1993 battle with foreign-ex- 
change speculators a success 
and cleared the way to adopt a 
single currency this decade 
without tightening trading lim- 
its between national currencies. 

EU finance ministers en- 
dorsed a written opinion of the 
European Monetary Institute; 
the forerunner of an EU central 
bank, that the widening of trad- 
ing limits to plus or minus 15 
percent from plus or minus 2.5 
percent had succeeded in 
thwarting speculation against 
EU currencies and should be 
maintained. 

The language of the agree- 
ment was vague, and ministers 
made it apparent they would 
keep things that way. 

Asked whether the decision 
meant the EU could proceed to 
a single currency without tight- 
ening trading limits. Theo Wai- 
gel, the German minister who 
chaired the meeting, said only, 
M I am not prepared to open the 
door today to new speculation." 

The Maastricht Treaty allows 
countries to adopt a single cur- 
rency beginning in 1997 or 1999 
if their currencies have stayed 
within "normal*' limits for two 
years. 

When ministers widened the 
range in which currencies are 
allowed to fluctuate “normally" 
to 15 percent on Aug. 2, 1993, 
amid a full-blown currency cri- 
sis, they called the move tempo- 
rary. But the system has worked 
so well since then — all major 
currencies in the exchange-rate 
mechanism have gone back 
within the old 2 J percent bands 
— that no one wants to tamper 
with it 

" Separately, Mr. Waigef and 
Finance Minister Lamberto 
Dini of Italy denied that Rome 
had opened talks aimed at re- 
turning the lira to the exchange- 
rate mechanism. Several Italian 


The ministers also gave a 
thumbs-up to an EU plan to 
break ground on 14 cross-bor- 
der road and rail projects by the 
end of 1996 but, al British insis- 
tence, dropped a reference to 
considering new borrowing. 

The decision could set the 
stage for a new clash over fund- 
ing if Jacques DeJors, the out- 
going president of the EU com- 
mission, decides to make a push 
on financing at a two-day sum- 
mit meeting that opens Friday 
in Essen, Germany. 

Henning Chris top hersen, the 
commissioner for economic af- 
fairs, criticized the ministers for 
dosing the door on the possibil- 
ity of fresh funding, saying that 
Britain, France and Belgium 
alone had lodged requests for 
funds that would deplete the 
existing EU budget for such 
projects, according to officials 
attending the meeting. 

The minis ters also endorsed a 
plan for combating long-term 


NEW YORK — Under pressure from 
the public and Congress to regulate the 
burgeoning trade in derivatives, the Fed- 
eral Reserve Board warned banks Mon- 
day that they must explain to customers 
exactly what they are buying. 

The warning came in an announce- 
ment that Bankers Trust New York 
Corp. had agreed with Fed regulators to 
ensure that any company “has the capa- 
bility to understand the nature and mate- 
rial terms, conditions and risks" of the 
complex instruments. 

Bankers Trust, the most aggressive of 
the big New York banks dealing in the 
instruments that were designed to- pro- 
tect companies against interest-rate and 
currency fluctuations, is under investiga- 
tion by the Securities and Exchange 
Commission after settling a 573 million 
suit filed by Gibson Greetings Inc. over 
losses on derivatives. 

A $130 million suit has been filed by 
Procter & Gamble Co., which also says 


Bankers Trust (fid not explain the risks 
of the contracts. 

Bankers Trust's credit rating was 
placed under review Monday by Stan- 
dard & Poor's Corp., the first review by 
the credit-rating concern related to a 
company's concentrated exposure to the 
derivatives business, Knight-Ridder Fi- 
nancial News reported. 

Adding to these high-profile cases was . 
the disclosure last week by the treasurer 
of Orange County that its derivatives 
fund had lost more than S1.5 billion on 
the book value of its securities. That 
prompted Senator Alfonse M. D* Amato, 
the Republican from New York who is 
expected to become chairman of the 
Ranging Committee, to pledge to investi- 
gate the derivatives business. 

With the foil support of the Fed, banks 
and banking groups have pleaded with 
Congress not to regulate derivatives and 
ajgued that the remedy for excesses in the 
business was fuller disclosure by banks. 

Another example of this came Mon- 


day in London when the Group of Thir- 
ty, a study group of bankers and academ- 


ics chaired by Paul Volcker, former 
chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, 
released a survey showing 88 percent of 
274 firms polled either followed the 
group’s guid elin es on derivatives or 
planned to do so within the next year. 

Bankers Trust said its agreement with 
the Fed was limited to leveraged transac- 
tions, which are the most risky because 
they involve borrowed money. But they 
also are the most potentially lucrative for 
companies that use derivatives to specu- 
late for profit, not just to protect theziH 
selves against market moves. 

Charles Sanford, chair man of Bankers 
Trust, said leveraged transactions ac- 
counted for less than 5 percent of the 
bank's total revenue from Jan. 1, 1993, to 
SepL 30, 1994. 

The agreement said the bank had al- 
ready reviewed its derivatives business 
for controls, and Mr. Sanford said the 
new code of conduct, to be submitted to 
the Fed by year-end, “will bring to the 
leveraged derivative transaction business 
a level of transparency and supervision 
that will benefit our clients.”

■ Ukraine Gets EU Loan 

EU finance ministers ap- 
proved a loan of 85 million Eu- 
ropean currency units ($103 
million) to Ukraine but at- 
tached such stringent condi- 
tions that the funds are unlikely 
to be disbursed soon. 

The package is conditional 
upon Ukraine reaching a stand- 
by agreement with the Interna- 
tional Monetary Fund and 
agreeing to a definitive shut- 
down of the Chernobyl nuclear 
complex, neither of winch is ex-

New York Tunes Service 

NEW YORK — The treasurer of Or- 
ange County, California, investing 58 
billion of money from the county and 
local government agencies, did not buy 
any securities that have defaulted. Nor 
are any likely to do so. 

Virtually every security he bought will 
be worth, at maturity, about what he 
paid. So how did the treasurer, Robert L. 
Citron, manage to lose S1J> billion of 
that money, as the county acknowledged 
last week? 


[Mr. Gtron has submitted his resigna- 
tion, Knight-Ridder reported late Mon- 
day from Santa Ana, California.] 

To put more money to work, the fund 
borrowed about $2 for every $1 that had 
been entrusted toitto manage. The fund 
must pay interest on those borrowings, 
and that biE has risen rapidly this year. 

That part of the loss has nothing to do 
with derivatives — securities whose val- 
ue is based on the value of simpler under- 


lying securities or commodities — and 
everything to do with the risk of taking 
on debt to make investments. 

Meanwhile, the interest the fund earns 
on its investments has stayed the same 
on many and declined rapidly on others, 
including some of the more exotic securi- 
ties that can be classified as derivatives. 

While those securities will return to 
face value in a few years, they may not 
produce enough interest in the meantime 
to support the loans Mr. Citron took out 
to buy them. 

Some of the securities conceivably 
could go for years without paying any 
interest. The $15 billion of losses refers 
not to the cash that has flowed out of the 
fund but also to the current market value 
of the securities the fund owns. 

The fund cannot afford to let its cus- 
tomers withdraw money now, because its 
securities are not worth what it paid, and 
it would take losses if it sold them. So last 
week, it notified the customers that any 
withdrawals would carry a 20 percent 
penalty. Had it not done so, the first 
customers out would have got their money 


while later ones took even larger losses. 

What follows is a look at some of the- 
securities Mr. Citron bought and the 
financing strategies he followed: 

• Lend long, borrow short. Orange " 
County bought large quantities of Trea- 
sury and government agency securities, 
mostly with maturities of five years or 
less, with some miming to 10 years. It 
generally financed those purchases 
through what are called reverse repur- 
chase agreements, or reverse repos, in 
which securities — either those that are 
being bought or others — are pledged to 
secure loans. Those loans were generally 
rolled over every three or six months and 
became more expensive as market inter- 
est rates rose. 

For example, in October the fund 
bought 5124.8 millio n face value of Trea- 
sury notes paying 4.75 percent interest ^ 
and maturing in September 1998. It paid 
an average price of slightly more than . 
par value, so it got an effective yield of ‘ 
4.61 percent Most of the money it spent t

Thinking Ahead /Commenfgry 

Clinton Should Go for Three in a Row 


Seoul Plans to Loosen Financial Rules 


Compiled by Our Staff From Dispatches 


•r By Reginald Dale 

ItaentarionaT Herald Tribune 

W ASHINGTON — In the 
past few days, President Bill 
Clinton has again nail ed his 
colors to. the free-trade mast. 
First, he signed on to an Asia-Pacific 
free-trade area. 

Now he is H aiming credit — though 
much more than he deserves — for Con- 
gressional approval of the Uruguay 
Round world trade pact But just as Ire 
has a chance to make it three in a row, it 
looks as if he is running out of steam. 

At the Summit of the Americas in Mi- 
ami this weekend, Mr. Clinton will have a 
historic opportunity to lay ^founda- 
tions for free trade throughout, the West- 
ern Hemisphere now that a booming Lat- 
in America has suddenly become one of 
the world's fastest-growing regions. 

Bnt it looks as if Mr. Clinton is going 
to miss the opportunity. Largpfo as a 
result of short-term thinking and Wtate 
House bungling, the Miami 
shaping up as a turkey, said Gary Huf 
Kero! the Institute for International 
Economics in Washington. ^ 

^That’s a pity. At home, 
should not allow the free- bade 
tum to falter as isolationist forces rgwp 
for new battles in the montte “hod. 

Abroad, it will do no good for Ameri- 
can leadership if Washington cannot of- 
at least as fawtadung 
a deal as it strode with the Asia-Paafic 
countries in Jakarta just three weeks ago. 
.1; «r new moves to 


freer trade in Latin America, preferably 
with a timetable, will seem weak and 
indecisive. The general idea of hemispher- 
ic free trade was already endorsed two 
years ago under President George Bush. 

Miami is looking like Jakarta in reverse. 
In Jakarta, the Asia-Pacific Economic Co- 
operation forum endorsed the vision with- 
out the details. In Miami, L atin America 
is likely to get details, in the shape of more 
meetings, without the vision. 

In contrast to APEC the Miami sum- 
mit meeting is unlikely to set a target 


Hie United Stales 
should offer Latin 
America at least as far- 
reaching a trade deal as it 
struck with APEG 


date far free trade. Nor is Mr. Ctinton 
expected to propose further Latin Amer- 
ican summit meetings, although the 
APEC summits are now annual events. 

And yet the economic and political 
azgumsi ts for the United States to em- 
brace free trade with Latin America are 
just as good, if not better, than they are 
for tire Pacific. Now that they are virtual- 
ly all free-maiket democracies, the Latin 
Ameri can countries are much more ho- 
mogeneous than these in APEC — polit- 
ically, culturally and economically. 

A h em« pher&-wide dismantling of 
economic frontiers would help underpin 


the new democracies, defuse long-stand- 
ing cross-border antagonisms and create 
an internationally minded middle class. 

Without waiting for the United States, 
the Latin American countries are already 
p ushing ahead with a plethora of their 
own plans for free-trade areas and com- 
mon markets. Many of them also are 
looking to forge new trade links' with 
Europe and Asia. 

If the United States wants to be at the 
center of these new economic structures, 
it should take the lead now, with the first 
step being a formal invitation to Chile to 
join the North American Free Trade 
Agreement. Other countries would join 
when they are ready. 

A hemispheric area would make more 
sense than the perplexing network of 
subregional agreements that is already 
causing some confusion to business. 
And, according to a study by Mr. Huf- 
bauer and Jeffrey J. Schott, it would 
divert little trade and investment from 
other countries. 

That is a key point. Like APEC, a 
hemispheric free-trade agreement should 
be a building block of a more open 
multilateral system, not an inward-look- 
ing fortress. 

To implement such a strategy, Mr. 
Clinton will need broad new fast-track 
negotiating authority from Congress. To 
help ensure that he gets it, he should use 
the Miami summit meeting to continue 
to campaign vigorously for freer trade, 
not send a message that he is sudd rally 
shirking the challenge. 


SEOUL — The government 
announced Monday a five-year 
deregulation program that 
would ease the movement of 
funds in and out of South Ko- 
rea and allow foreign compa- 
nies to list on Seoul's fast-grow- 
ing stock exchange- 

By 1997, South Korean com- 
panies will be permitted to freely 
borrow and invest outside (tie 
country. Currently, they need 
government approval for foreign 
investments exceeding $20,000. 

The measures, subject to par- 
liamentary approval, will be im- 
plemented in three stages be- 
ginning next year, the Finance 
Ministry said. 


The limit on foreign currency 
that individuals may take on 
overseas trips will be doubled to 
510,000 pcT trip; students 
studying abroad will be permit- 
ted $3,000 a month, compared 
with $2,000 now. 

The ceiling for overseas secu- 
rities investment will be raised 


to 1 billion won ($1.3 million) 
next year from 300 million won 
for companies and to 500 mil- 
lion won from 100 million won 
for individuals. 

The limit on foreign stock 
ownership in local companies 
will be raised to 15 percent next 
year from 12 percent now. The 


China to Direct Lending 
To Strategic Industries 


The ministry said the mea- 
sures were needed to help South 
Korean companies build their 
offshore operations and be- 
come more competitive. 

The government also will 
scrap some restrictions on for- 
eign currency beddings. Current- 
ly, individuals and companies 
with more than' $50,000 in for- 
eign currency must report then- 
holdings to bank authorities. 

The new plan wfll permit in- 
dividuals to deposit as much as 
$30,000 in overseas accounts.

currently barred from keeping 
overseas accounts.

HONG KONG — China has imposed s'tringent measures to 
restrict commercial loans to strategic industries, to by to shore up 
the credit rating of local companies amid a spate of bad debts. 

The measures came as once-generous lenders tightened their 
own procedures for approving credit to joint ventures, which have 
mushroomed in the booming Chinese economy, currently growing 
at between 1 1 percent and 12 percent. 

“There were internal circulars sent recently to all local govern- 
ments as well as stale- run banks to limit loans to approved credit 
limits in major am tracts," said an official at an affiliate of the 
Bank of China. “Authorities have decided to restrict foreign 
investment to those that meet strategic economic development 
needs of the country,” he said. 

Foreign investment in China this year is expected to rise 30

1996 and 1997. The abolition of 
the investment ceiling will be 
discussed after 1998. I 

“The opening of stock add 
bond markets wfll be carried out 
gradually to prevent sudden in- 
fluxes and outflows of foreign 
money," the assistant finance 
minister. Shin Myoung Ho, said. 

While allowing foreign firms 
to list shares on the stock ex- 
change, Seoul will continue to 
prohibit foreigners from own- 
ing more than 10 percent of; a 
domestic company. 

South Korea has had tight 
controls on foreign exchange

mestic money supply. 

The five-year plan was bas$d 
on a report submitted in Sej>

. Compiled by Ow Staff From Dispatches 

. NEW YORK — The dollar 
was mostly lower Monday as 
traders took profits after the 
currency’s gains last week, deal- 
ers said. 

; A series of stronger-than-ex- 
pected economic reports last 
week sparked speculation that 

Foreign Exchange 


.the Federal Reserve Board 
would have to follow up its 75- 
basis-point rate increase of 
Nov. 15 with another increase 
to keep inflation in check. 

* The dollar closed at 1.5717 
Deutsche marks, down from 
d.5800 DM on Friday, and at 
il 00.355 yen, down from 
000.605 yen. The dollar was 
Jalso at 13950 French francs, 
•down from 5.4210 francs, and 
jat 1.3255 Swiss francs, down 
[from 1.3337 francs. 
t The pound was at $15570, 
Jdown from $1.5610. 
i Traders said dollar trading 
*was light because of a firmer 
jmark against most other curren- 


cies amid speculation Germa- 
ny’s central bank was more like- 
ly to raise rates than lower them. 

Higher German rates would . 
make mark-denominated de-j 
posits more attractive. 

“There's nothing too much in 
that apart from a lack of inter- 
est in the dollar,” a dealer said. 

The dollar failed to react 
much to a wanting from Trea- 
sury Secretary Lloyd Bentseu of 
the dangers of allowing the dol- 
lar to collapse. 

"If you see the dollar go 
down the tubes, you end up 
with serious problems, 1 ' Mr. 
Bentseu said. 

Mr. Bentsen said the U.S. 
government and the Fed had to 
balance the need to avoid a dol- 
lar collapse, fight inflation and 
bring down die budget deficit 

“We had some profit-taking, 
and the market is taking a bit of 
a break,” said Kaori Muto, a 
corporate adviser at Bank of 
America in London. “But peo- 
ple want to buy on dips.”

LONDON — World oil prices plunged 
again Monday, extending a decline that 
has knocked more than $1 a barrel off 
prices in two trading days. 

Traders sold oil futures heavily on fears 
of a muter supply glut Analysts say oil 
refiners have produced too much gasoline 
and heating oil and think demand will not 
absorb it 

The benchmark Brent blend crude oil for 
January delivery traded at $16.04 a barrel in 
London, 15 cents below Friday’s close. 


Analysts said mild weather across the 
Northern Hemisphere was keeping a lid on 
demand for heating oiL 

The price of oil is now almost exactly at 
the midpoint between the year’s high and 
low of $19.01 and $12.90 a barrel reached 
in August and in February. 

Starting Jan. 1, motorists in the most 
polluted cities across the United States will 
be fining up with cleaner “reformulated” 
gasoline as part of the government’s anti- 
pollution program. 

Oil refineries have been working to pre- 
pare for the switch, producing gasoline at 


rates to ensure the avail- Witkud Box Office 


ability of supplies. 

■ Nickel Price Soars in Siberia Panic 

The world price of nickel soared amid

Exchange, the metal .was up more than 25 
percent from a week earlier and had gained 
7 percent in just a few hours of trading. 

The price eased later to 58,800 as the 
fears abated.

Plans for 
Survival 

Bloomberg Bmbnsn Newt 

AifeE U AG C S "“*? ebrQdcr 
M&iz AG , the indebted Ger- 
man brewer and drink-ma ke r 
said Monday it planned a thor- 
ough reorganization, including 
sdfing or dosing subsidiaries. 

Dieter Jtmemann, a member 
jOf -the company’s supervisory 
r board i detailed the rescue plan 
at a medal meeting of Marz 
shareholders. 

: .“Since it is not possible to 
bring the company into profit 
in the short term, this will m«Hn; 
selling or, when that’s not possi- 
ble, dosing” MSrz subsidiaries, " 
Mr. Jtmemann said. 

- Shareholders on Monday 
overwhelmingly approved a 
plan to sell a 95 percent interest 
m Bavaria-St Pauli Brauerei 
and its Jever beer brand to rival 
Brau & Brunnen AG. The plan 

x was announced in October. 

; Mfirz said it would get 400 
milli on Deutsche marks ($254 
million) from the sale of Jever 
and its brewery. That windfall, 
and the Mhrz family's decision 
to write off more than 200 mil- 
lion DM in loans to the compa- 
ny, will reduce M&rz’s accumu- 
lated bank deb t from 1.1 billion 
DM to 517 million DM. 

But Mdrz executives said that , 
would not be enough to save the , 
company, Germany's largest- 
vohime bcer producer in 1993, 
without additional measures. 

The sale of the Jever brand 
and the Hamburg brewery is 
expected to make Brau & Bran- 
next Germany’s largest-volume 
beer maker, succeeding Mdrz. 

- - Shareholders were not ex- 
-■ peeled to vote on the overall 

direction of the proposals made 
by the Mare family, who hold 
more than 90 percent of the 
company’s common shares. 

Trading in Mfire stock, which 
was suspended Thursday pend- 
ing Monday’s announcement, 
will resume Tuesday. The 
shares last traded at 216 DM. 

M&re executives did not say 
which subsidiaries the company 
planned to sell or close, but they 
promised there would be “a 
new M&rz” at the shareholders’ 
Meeting in May. 

MSre owns the national beer 
brands Henninger, Eichbaum 
and EKU.

SCHKOPAU, Germany — Building 
after building sits vacant. The rust is 
everywhere — on miles of piping that 
run overhead, on stanchions supporting 
huge water tanks and on smokestacks 
reminiscent of the last century. 

This mournful site a few miles west of 
Leipzig is the Buna chemical complex, 
once the heart of the East German state 
chemical industry and, more recently, ail 
but destined for the scrap heap. 

But the European subsi diar y of Dow 
Chemical Co. is betting on the revival of 
ihe l ,250-acre (500-hectare) plant and its 
antiquated technology, as Dow Chemi- 
cal makes its boldest move yet into Eu- 
rope. 

Dow Deutschland is expected to pay 
several hundred million dollars for a 75 
percent stake in Buna and two other 
nearby plants while the giant Russian 
natural gas company Gazprom pur- 
chases the rest. The German government 
will bear the brunt of the restoration at 
Buna with a $2 billion investment that 
nonetheless could save only 3,000 jobs at 
the plant, which once employed 18,000. 
It now has 4,600 workers. 

“When we’re done. Buna will be possi- 
bly the most modem chemical complex 
in Europe,” said its managing director, 
Bernhard H. Bnimmer. “There were 
many in the West who amply wanted to 
shut us down so they wouldn’t have any 
new competition. But that’s not going to 
happen. Buna will live.” 

Dow Deutschland is already the domi- 
nant American chemical company in Eu- 
rope, challenging the European chemical 
giants Bayer, BASF and HoechsL 


Leipzig 


Frankfurt 


GERMANY 


If Dow acquires a majority of Buna 
and die two other plants — a steam 
cracker in Bohlen for beginning the 
chemical refining process and a polyole- 
fin producer in Leuna — it will become 
Germany’s fourth-largest chemical com- 
pany. 

“The East German operation is, more 
than anything, a beachhead for exports 
to Poland, the Czech Republic, the 
Ukraine and the Baltics,” Elmar J. 
Deutsch. head of Dow Chemical’s Ger- 
man subsidiary, said in a recent inter- 
view with the German business weekly 
Wirtschaftswoche. Mr. Deutsch declined 
to be interviewed for this article. 

Buna embodies many symbols. 

For the German government strug- 
gling to integrate East and West, it is by 
far me largest bailout of failed East Ger- 
man industry, and, if sold to Dow Chem- 
ical, it will be the hugest privatization 
among the 13,000 former East German 
companies. 

For East Germans, it represents an 
assurance that despite the failure of com- 
munism, their chemical industry not 


only will not disappear but also will 
probably be competitive eventually, ear- 
ly in the next century. 

But the decision to invest a vast 
amount of capital to save a few jobs is 
also a politically delicate one. Buna will 
be left with oue-sixth of its former work 
force. But the project is an attempt to 
salvage at least some jobs in an area 
where unemployment is running at 30 
percent. 

Dow Chemical has signed a letter of 
intent with Treuhandanstah, the govern- 
ment agency handling East German pri- 
vatizations, to analyze the value of the 
operations at Buna, Bohlen and Leuna. 
Dow proposes to purchase as much as 76 
percent of the operations. 

Buna's move into free-market hands 
will mark a new era for this complex, 
which was built by the prewar chemical 
giant I.G. Farben. 

During World War II, Buna made 
tires for the German war machine. But it 
was not bombed by the Allies at the end 
of the war, as were many German chemi- 
cal plants. Some company officials con- 
tend that the Allies did not destroy the 
plant because they wanted to benefit 
from its substantial strides in the devel- 
opment of synthetic rubber. 

Under Communist rule. Buna provid- 
ed for the East German market because 
the country had little access to Western 
chemicals and technology. It made its 
chemicals from coal, an expensive, pol- 
luting process that has now been shut 
down. Despite the severe pollution that 
resulted, the technology was studied by 
other chemical companies in the after- 
math of the 1973 Arab oQ embargo. 

Mr. Brummer, who keeps a color post- 
er of the former East Ge rman leader 
Erich Honecker as a reminder of the 
company’s past, acknowledges it is not 
easy for a Western manager to run Buna. 
“There is real resentment here that West- 
erners have come in and exploited the 
East Germans,” Mr. Br umme r said. 
“East Germans want to run their own 
destiny now.”

Tourism Booms in China 

Compiled by Oar Staff From Dispatcher 

BEIJING — China’s earnings from tourism this year are 
expected to jump by about 50 percent to more than $7 billion, the 
official Economic Information Daily said Monday.

Japan: The Day of the Dead Cross 

Some Fear the Charts Portend a New Slide in Stocks 


Bloomberg Business News 

TOKYO —The sign of the dead cross 
has fallen across this stock market, serv- 
ing as an omen to many that the time for 
owning Japanese equities has passed. 

“It means the long-term trend in the 
Japanese market is to be changed for the 
negative.** said Takafaaru Nakamura, 
general manager at Commerz Securities 
(Japan) Co. 

Though it may sound like some sort of 
hex, the dead cross is little more titan a 
mathematical coincidence. 

The term describes the point at which 
the graph of stock prices averaged over 
five years crosses below the graph of 
stock prices averaged over 10 years. The 
opposite phenomenon, when the five- 
year graph line rises above the 10-year, is 
known as a golden cross. 

Last month, the Nikkei Stock Aver- 
age. Tokyo’s benchmark index of 225 
stocks, witnessed a dead cross for the 
first time since World War II. 

Some fund managers and analysts say 
that spells more trouble for a market 
where prices have already fallen 10 per- 
cent since mid-June. 

What makes the dead cross so dread- 
ed, they say, is that it has a track record 
in New York. When the five-year moving 
average crossed below the' 10-year in 
November 1977, the Dow Jones industri- 
al average fell more than 8 percent in the 
next three months. After they crossed in 
this manner in December 1973, the Dow 
fell almost 9 percent in 10 months. 

Some Tokyo investors border on the 
superstitious when it comes to statistical 
analysis.

Books that chart the Nikkei and Japa- 
nese stock prices are popular sellers at 
newsstands in Tokyo. “If people weren’t 
looking at it. the chart books wouldn't 
sefl,” said Alexander Kinxnont, a strate- 
gist for Morgan Stanley Japan. 

The dead cross did not cause the mar- 
ket to mdt down Monday. Instead the 
Nikkei average rose 1.6 percent to dose at 
19305.66. Investors were encouraged by 
the rise in the dollar against the yen and 
by mins in US. stock markets Friday. 

Not everyone is afraid of the dead 
cross. Some in Tokyo have not even 
beard of it, and many said they did not 
need any statistical mysticism to tell 
them that Japanese equities are beaded 
for trouble. 

There are some basic reasons for pessi- 
mism that do not have unusual nick- 
names. 


Stock prices are still too high com- 
pared with corporate earnings, analysts 
say. The average ratio of price to earn- 
ings in Japan is about 70, while in the 
United States, anything higher than 20 

raises eyebrows. 

Also menacing the market is the yen, 
which has appreciated 1 1 percent against 
the U.S. dollar this year, making Japan’s 
exports less and less competitive. Many 
traders said they thought the dollars 
recent slight recovery was a short-term 
phenomenon. 

The decline that Mr. Nakamura and 
others foresee may have less to do with 
the dead cross than with something in- 
vestors all over the world are grappling 
with: higher interest rates. 

"My experience,” said James Bush, a 
trader at Barclays deZoete Wedd Securi- 
ties (Japan) LuL, "is that six rate rises in 
the States wouldn't be conducive to buy- 
ing equities.” 

Eric Kent, vice president of overseas 
equity trading at Nomura Securities 
Ltd, said: "Individuals are so sour on 
the market, I think it’s going to take a 
long time before they can be convinced 
to come back in.” 

Is the dead cross ruining investors* 
appetites, or did their growing awareness 
of the problems cause the upsetting sta- 
tistic in the first place? 

The answer is a little of each, according 
to Mr. Nakamura of Comment Securities. 
Investors looking at the dead cross are 
also aware that the days of ironclad cor- 
porate cross-shareholdings are ending. 

He shares a growing consensus that the 
N ikkei average is likdy to drop to near 
where it began the year, just bekrw 1 8,000. 


Fund Chief Sees Leading Role for Yen 


Agence Frmce-Presse 

SYDNEY — The yen could topple the 
dollar as Asia's predominant currency, 
the manager of one of Japan's biggest 
investment funds said Monday. 

N abumitsu Kagarni. vice president of 
Nomura Investment Management Co„ 
told a conference here that trade and 
investment between Japan and other 
Asian countries would lead to closer in- 
tegration and interdependence. 

"This may, in turn, lead to a gradual 
formation of a de facto yen bloc within 

the region in which the use of the yen will 

begin to increase as a regional key cur- 
rency,” he said. 

Japan’s increasing role as an Asian 
investor made such a forecast "logical 
enough, especially now that the persis- 
tent weakness of the U.S. dollar has 


seriously eroded the confidence that the 
countries in the region traditionally have 
held in this currency,'’ Mr. Kagarni said. 

He said 1994 could be remembered as 
a “major watershed" in the yen’s pro- 
gress as an international currency, add- 
ing that Japanese investors were shifting 
alkgiance from U.S. bonds to Euro- 
bonds denominated in yen. 

“in view of the fact that the countries 
in East Asia such as Indonesia. Korea, 
Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines 
have a significant portion of their official 
liabilities denominated in yen, there 
should be substantial potential demand 
by these countries for yen-denominated 
assets to be included in their foreign- 
exchange reserves,” Mr. Kagarni said. 

Asian countries had improved their 
competitive positions with Japan by ty- 


ing their currencies to the U. S . dollar, he 
added, but when those economies ma- 
tured and needed price stability, they 
could turn to the yen. 

■ Capital Spending Called Weak 

Hkleaki Kumano, a vice minister at 
the Ministry of International Trade and 
Industry, said capital spending remained 
weak, indicating that the Japanese econ- 
omy had not entered a full recovery, 
AFP-Extel News reported from Tokyo. 

Separately, die ministry said sentiment 
in Japan’s corporate sector improved in 
the third quarter from the second quarter, 
reflecting firm consumer spending and 
pro gr ess in inventory adjustment. 

Mi l l said 35.5 percent of the compa- 
nies that responded had reported an im- 
provement in the business environment in 
the third quarter from the second quarter.

F or years, Zimbabwe succeeded in concealing from the 
world its combination of an orderly infrastructure and huge 
expanses of wilderness, which include a geographical mar- 
vel on a gargantuan scale. 

At independence in 19S0, the country gave itself a name 
that made it the last alphabetical entry in the tourist cata- 
logue index. Then it had a tribal conflict and gained a reputa- 
tion of being fiercely leftist. But in I9S9, as die world began 
to change, the small Southern African country and its 10 
million people settled political differences and emerged into 
the world's consciousness with a more positive image. 

in a leap that began in 1989, arrivals more than trebled to 
880.000 last year, and tourism is now growing annually by 
10.4 percent, well above the global average. Receipts from 
international tourism rose fivefold, to $95 million, last year. 
Spillover benefits of the sector nearly double that figure, to 
represent 4.S percent of the gross domestic product. 
The prime attraction is Victoria Falls, the world’s largest war 
ferfall. a spectacle that draws an involuntary **aah” from vis- 
itors. This high drama is complemented by the impressive 
diversity of African flora and fauna in the sprawling, effi- 
ciently run national parks. All this in a country whose cities, 
transport and communication networks are of a high stan- 
dard and which is populated mostly by friendly, hospitable 
Africans. 

In the last five years, the tourist industry has been radically 
altered. .All of the established hotel companies have invested 
heavily in refurbishment. The growth area has been the low- 
density, high-cost bush lodge. In 1989, there were eight such 
camps around Victoria Falls. Now there are 28. These were 
mostly developed by small, independent local companies, 
which often work at a breathtaking pace. Landela Safaris, 
one of the first to see the opportunities five years ago, grew 
from virtually nothing to spending $1.5 million in the last 
three years on four lodges that take visitors on a circuit of the 
major wildlife destinations. The company plans to spend an- 
other 5 1 million on three more lodges next year, says man- 
aging director Stewart Cranswick. 

Zimbabwe Sun Hotels, the leisure wing of the country's 
biggest, pan-siate-owned conglomerate, has been the most 
aggressive of the big corporations. It has had a capital invest- 
ment ol S 10 million since 1989, when it abandoned big ho- 
tels to build new lodges or buy up existing operations. This 
y ear, the company broke new ground when it moved into the 
severely underdeveloped southeast of the country. To begin 
w ith. there will be five lodges on the 700,000 acre Save Riv- 
er Conservancy, jointly owned by 14 former cattle ranchers 
who pulled up their fences two years ago and trucked in 150 
elephants* from the Gonarezhou national park next door.

Villages Combine 
To Greet Visitors 

Rural communities put in charge of development 


When it comes to trading on esoteric names, Zimbab- 
we’s Uzumba-Maramba-Pfungwe f district council could 
compete with some well-known Welsh 
InJuiy, the council received an 
rourisro award from British Airways. Framed [and Jwed _to 
the mud wall of the council s Sunungukai Camp on the 
banks of the Mufunidzi River in northeast Zimbabwe, the re- 
ward recognizes a radical change made by a tiny rural 
African community that wants to thrive m its fragile, wild 


It took three years to bring the three villages of 600 people 
to accept collective responsibility for setting up the four ron- 
davels (round huts), in which visitors stay for $2 a night 
Scores of gold partners had to be persuaded to mow away 
from the river front, tree felling had to be stopped, and 
poachers had to be policed. The camp made a profit of only . 
§370 in its first year, but things are improving fast. Liz Ki- 
hoy, field worker for the local aid organization, Zimbabwe 
Trust, says, ‘There was a lot of mismanagement but they 
have learned a lot." 

The trust is one of a small group of organizations backing 
an initiative called CAMPFIRE (Communal Areas Manage- 
ment Program for Indigenous Resources), a farsighted con- 
cept of rural development introduced by Zimbabwe's Nar 
ri nn.il Parks Department in 1984. It puts remote rural com- 
munities m charge of the bush and wildlife they live in, so 
they can benefit from tourism profits earned through their 
own carefully managed conservation. 

By 1989, 12 districts had adopted CAMPFIRE programs, 
but they were devoted to safari hunting and leased hunting 
rights to operators. Last year, total earnings of the 12 dis- 
tricts rose 60 percent, to $1.13 million, far beyond the re- 
turns of traditional subsistence agriculture. All the profits 
were plowed back into the communities. 

Sunungukai camp, aimed at the lowly backpacker market, 
was the first CAMPFIRE operation that did not involve 
hunting. Two other deals concluded this year show how 
CAMPFIRE has brought rural communities into the world 
of corporate finance. i 

Zimbabwe Sun Hotels and Landela Safaris have each I 
signed with separate district councils for the lease of land for 
luxury game lodges, under terms drafted by Price Water- 
house that give die councils a percentage of turnover, but 
also oblige them to maintain the land in a wilderness state. 

The Hwange council, east of Victoria Falls, will soon be 
developing what is likely to become hugely valuable real es- 
tate - 12 camp-lodge sites on die banks of die Zambezi Riv- 
er for lease. 

Hwange council is also charging white-water rafting a 
levy if visitors end their rides on council land, and when a £ 
hotel dug 200 silver fig trees from Hwange's territory, they 
were obliged to pay. 

“Councils are realizing they can demand payment for their 
resources,” spys ML .Ripoy. ' •

R ills Bolt Back Into Contention as ]NFL Playoff Races Enter Home Stretch 

* fnmMl dr tumflv 


The Associated Pros 

Don't count the Buffalo Bills, 
or several other teams, out of 
the National Football League's 
playoff race. 

" Jim Kelly threw for four 
touchdowns, two to Andre 
Reed, who also completed the 
first pass of his 10-year NFL 
career, as Buffalo prevailed in a 
42-3 1 shoot-out Sunday in Mi- 
i mi. The Bills, who have been 
hammered in the last four Su- 
per Bowls, scored 35 points in 
the second half. 

’ “This was a stepping stone 
for us," Kelly said. “If everyone 
does their job, there’s no telling 
what we’re capable of." 

The day's results did nothing 
to clear up the playoff picture 
with three weeks remaining. 
Dallas f 1 1-2) clinched the NFC 
East title with an easy victory in 
Philadelphia and Pittsburgh se- 
cured at least a wild-card in the 
AFC by winning in Cincinnati. 


The Steelers got sole possession 
of first place in the AFC Cen- 
tral when Cleveland lost to the 
New York Giants. 

But with 13 of the league’ s 28 
teams at 300 or within a game 
of it entering Monday night’s 
Raid ers -Chargers game in San 
Diego, the scramble for the 
playoffs has gotten wild. 

Already in is San Francisco, 
which routed Atlanta and has 
secured the NFC West crown. 
San Diego wins the AFC West 
title by beating Los Angeles. 

Denver, despite losing John 
Hway to a knee injury — he will 
be diagnosed further — moved 
into a tie with Kansas City in 
the AFC West at 7-6 with an 
overtime victory. New England 
and Buffalo remained tied at 7- 
6. with the Patriots beating the 
New York Jets. The Indianapo- 
lis Colts moved up to 6-7 by 
winning in Seattle. 

In the NFC East, the Eagles 


fell to 7-6, one game in front of 
the Giants and Arizona, which 
beat Houston. Detroit’s victory 
over Green Bay gave it a 7-6 
mark and dropped the Packers 
to 6-7 in the Central The Fal- 
cons are 6-7 in the West. 

AFC EAST 

Bills 42, Dolphins 31: The 
Bills were sensational in the sec- 
ond half, getting some breaks 
and malting all the big plays. 
They have won 15 of 18 games 


NFL ROUNDUP 


against the Dolphins since 
1987, including eight of nine at 
Joe Robbie Stadium, site of this 
season’s Super Bowl. 

“We had some lucky plays." 
said the Bills' coach, Marv 
Levy. “But you’ve got to do 
something with it after you get 
the lucky plays." 

The lucky plays included 
Don Beebe’s 72-yard touch- 


down on a ball that was tipped; 
Reed’s throw to Bill Brooks for 
32 yards after Reed had 
dropped the ball; Mike Du- 
mas’s catch of Yonel Jourdain’s 
fumble on a kickott return, 
which he turned into a 62-yard 
play to set up a touchdown. 

Patriots 24, Jets 13: In Fox- 
boro, Massachusetts, the Patri- 
ots also got a crucial intercep- 
tion touchdown, as Ricky 
Reynolds scored from 1 1 yards 
after stealing Boomer Esiason’s 
pass. 

The Jets’ Art Monk tied 
Steve Largenfs NFL record of 
177 straight games with a catch, 
on a 7-yard completion from 
Esiason with 3:25 left in the 
first quarter. 

Colts 31, Seahawks 19: Mar- 
shall Faulk gained 129 yards for 
Indianapolis, and has 1,086 
yards this season, a single-sea- 
son rookie rushing record for 
the team. Seattle lost quarter- 


back Rick Mirer with a broken 
thumb on his left (nonihrow- 
ing) hand and played listlessly 
alter an auto accident that left 
defensive tackle Mike Frier par- 
alyzed and with pneumonia. 

Running back Chris Warren, 
also injured in the crash, played 
and rushed for 81 yards. 

AFC CENTRAL 

Steelers 38, Beogals 15: 
Pittsburgh’s overpowering de- 
fense got plenty of help from its 
offense as Bam Morris rushed 
for 108 yards and two touch- 
downs and Rod Woodson re- 
turned one of Pittsburgh’s two 
interceptions for a touchdown. 

The Steelers have won five 
straight for the first time since 
1983. 

Giants 16, Browns 13: Back- 
up kicker Brad Daluiso was 
good on a 33-yard field goal 
with 19 seconds to go. Daluiso. 
usually used only on kickoffs, 
kicked three field goals after 


David Treadwell was benched 
for missing a 37-yarder in the 
first half. 

The Browns (8-4) could have 
clinched their Gist playoff berth 
since 1989, but committed turn- 
overs cm four of their first five 
second-half possessions. Vinny 
Testaverde threw two intercep- 
tions and lost a fumble: 


AFC WEST 

Broncos 20, Chiefs 17: Elway 
was replaced in Kansas City by 
Hugh Mfflen, who led the Bron- 
cos to their winning field goal a 
34-yard er by Jason Elam in 
overtime. Denver has rallied 
from a 0-4 start. 

Steve Bono, starting for die 
injured Joe Montana, hit 61- 
and 62-yard passes Tor Kansas 
City, which has lost three of its 
last four. The Chiefs made it 1 7- 
15 on Bono's 62-yard touch- 
down pass to Willie Davis with 
7:08 left, then forged a 17-17 tie 


on Bono’s two-point conversion 
pass to Davis. 

The Broncos’ Shane Dronett 
blocked Lin Elliot’s 37-yard 
field goal attempt as time ex- 
pired, then Elam won it in over- 
time. 

NFC EAST 

Gmboys 3L Eagfes 1 9z Dal- 
las (11-2) won its 14th straight 
division game as Emmitt Smith 
carried 25 times for 91 yards 
and two touchdowns, and Mi- 
chael Irvin had 1 17 yards and a 
touchdown on four receptions. 
It was Philadelphia’s fourth 
straight loss. 

The big play was made by 
safety Darren Woodson- With 
Philadelphia at the Dallas 8, be 
picked off Randall Cunning- 
ham’s pass and went 94 yards 
for a touchdown. 

Cardinals 30, OBers 12: Ari- 
zona handed- Houston (1-12) its 
ninth consecutive defeat with 
its usually powerful defense. 


Bold Dates 
A Plus for 
Penn State 


By Malcolm Moran 

‘ Yew York Tima Service 

ATLANTA — When a 
tional championship is an ex- 
pectation and perfection 
conies the goal, it makes little 
difference when the disappoint- 
ment arrives or what form 
takes. The end of Alabama's 
hopes, with the 24-23 loss to 
Florida in the Southeastern 
Conference championship 
game, seemed more iraumat- 
Coloradr’ 

r u-nda >. ur Florida i>Uu«. a. 
The end for the Crimson Tide 
just came later. 

As a politically bizarre year 
of college football reaches' the 
pause before the finish, an out- 
come on the final Saturday of 
the regular season conti,..; .J to 
produce a set of winners and 
losers. 

Although the regular season 
had already ended for Nebras- 
ka and Penn State, the last two 
contenders with perfect re- 
cords. the elimination of the 
'Crimson Tide and a unique 
bowl schedule combined to give 
the Comhuskers one additional 
complication and the Nittany 
.Lions one small added edge. 

Nebraska maintained its lead 
over Penn State in the polls that 
determine a champion. The 
Comhuskers reached the lop 
spot in the final regular-season 

? 5Us for the second time in 
om Osborne's 22 years as head 
coach and the first time since 
1983, when Nebraska faced a 
challenge similar to the one it 
-■will deal wiih next month. 
.Then, and now, the Husker sea- 
son will be defined by a game 
'.against Miami at the Orange 
-Bowl, the home field of the 
Hurricanes. 

Alabama's loss removed a 
significant obstacle from a Mi- 
ami hope that would have 
.seemed unthinkable two 
months ago, and that is where

in range for a 34-yard field goal in overtime that gave the Broncos a 20-17 victory. 


the riming of the schedule be- 
comes a factor. 

Miami’s chances will depend 
on a Penn State loss to Oregon 
in the Rose Bowl, a game uiat 
has preceded the Orange Bowl 
in each of the past 30 games 
since the game in Miami be- 
came a prime-time event in 
1965. With Jan. 1 falling on a 


Sunday this year, almost all of 
the major bowls took the cus- 
tomary step of moving their 
games back one day. The Or- 
ange Bowl, seizing an opportu- 
nity of avoiding a confrontation 
with the Sugar Bowl, chose to 
remain on Jan. 1. 

If the Orange Bowl had con- 
tinued its past practice. Miami 


would have known early in the 
evening whether Penn State 
had won or lost. But that infor- 
mation will not be available 
this time, a factor that wifi give 
the Hurricanes one more rea- 
son lo believe and wifi intensi- 


fy Nebraska's problem of play- 
ing for a championship on the 


road.

Swimmer Lu: 

Tm Innocent 


TOKYO --- Lu Bin, who broke the 
worid record for the 200-meter individual 
medley at the games in Hiroshima, has 
denied nsmg a banned substance to help 
set the record and win four gold medals at 
the Asian Games in October. 

“I absolutely did not use any kind of 
doping substance,” Lu said in an interview 
with the Japanese news agency Kyodo in 
her hometown of Shenyang. ' 

Lu, 17, said she did not know why she 
tested positive b ecau se the administration 
of fo od and drink was very strict in the 
training camp in Beijing.

championships are the second most impor-

she said. 


Lu faces a probable two-year ban from 
competitive sw immin g, but insisted: “I am 
certain of my innocence and am trying to 
keep my composure ... 1 still want to win

Earlier, Kyodo reported, a member of 
the Chinese Olympic Committee, who in- As- 
sisted on anonymity, had said that “at .rt.4, 
present there are many coaches who are gw/

coaches use these kinds of drugs. gggyf

OCA and IOC Experts Say Testing 
Points to China’s Wider Drug Use 



fi n\ ’'Jr - m ■

Lu Bin in China: “I absolutely did not use any kind of doping substance.* 1 


Compiled by Our Staff From Duponha 

TOKYO — As one medical expert said 
Monday that it appeared there may have 
been more athletes usin g drugs at the 
Asian Games than the 1 1 Chinese who 
failed tests, another said that the tests 
showed that China is systematically giving 
its swimmers performance enhancing 
drugs. 

Dr. Yoshio Kuroda, chairman of the 
Olympic Council of Asia's medical com- 
mittee, said that urine samples of the 11 
Chinese who failed tests in October had 
contained an overly high density of dehy- 
drotestosterone (DHT), a male sex hor- 
mone which is very difficult to detect. 

Kuroda, who had returned to Tokyo 
from Kuwait, where he presented details of 
the tests to an OCA executive board, said 
there had been other athletes in Hiroshima 
who were suspected of using drugs. 

“We ruled that the athletes who sub- 
stantially exceeded the standard level of 
drug tested positive. But there were other 
athletes under the category of grey zone,” 
Kuroda said without giving further details. 

But, he added, “The young athletes have 
no knowledge of drugs. There must be 
some experts who have a good knowledge 
of doping. Otherwise it would be impossi- 
ble for such doping to be carried oul" 

In Cologne, Professor Manfred Donike, 
an International Olympic Committee offi- 
cial who has been involved in detailed 
analyses of the tests, said that because 
seven of the 11 positive Chinese samples 
came from swimmers “it can be concluded 


that there is systematic doping with the 
substance dehydioiestosierone.’’ 

“This is no surprise to me," added Don- 
ike, who runs a IOC-approved testing lab- 
oratory in Cologne. “It is another matter 
whether this stretches to other sports.” 

According to China’s official Xinhua 
News Agency, the 1 1 comprised five wom- 
en and six. men. The women were swim- 
mers Yang Aihua, Lu Bin and Zhou Guan- 
bin, hurdler Han Qing and cyclist Wang 
Yan. The men were swimmers Xiong 
Guoming, Hu Bin, Zhang Bin and Fu 
Yong, and canoeists Zhang Lei and Qiu 
Suoren. 

Yang won the 400-meter Freestyle at the 
World Championships in Rome in Sep- 
tember. Lu won four gold medals at the 
Asian Games and set a world record in the 
women's 200-meter individual medley. 

The Chinese Olympic Committee, ac- 
cording to reports, has ordered a full inves- 
tigation into the matter and has promised 
to punish offenders severely. But it re- 
mained adamant that drug use was the acts 
of individuals and not official policy. 

In Tokyo, an official of the laboratory 
that conducted the tests said Monday that 
new testing methods had made it possible 
to discover that the Chinese athletes were 
using drugs. 

“We would not have been able to detect 
the drugs with the methods that were used 
a year ago," said the official at Mitsubishi 
Chemical Biochemical Laboratories Inc., 
who spoke on condition of anonymity. 

Dehydrotestosterone is reportedly much 


harder to detect than testosterone, a male 
hormone sometimes used illegally by ath- 
letes to bitiJd strength. u 

The IaboraUHy official said he was liv- 
able to rfisetrreg information about the na- 
ture of the new tests. 

The laboratory, affiliated with Mitsubi- 
shi Chemical Corp., a major Japanese 
chemical company, is licensed by the IOC 
to conduct drug tests. 

* In t Jiiwnne , Switzerland, the director 
of the international swimming federation, 
FINA, said the seven Chinese swimmers 
face a two-year ban from international 
competition. 

Cornel Marculescu, head of the govern- 
ing body, said he was still awaiting the 
official report from the Olympic Council 
of Asia. 

If the report confirms that the swimmers 
tested positive for the performance-en- 
hancing substance dehydrotestosterone, 
FINA will suspend them fen: two years, he 
said. « 

“We will take the same action we take m 
any doping case," Marculescu said. “It 
depends on the substances, but in this case 
it would be a two-year suspension." 

Marculescu said that FINA was examin- 
ing at least one more positive test taken 
before the Asian Games, although be 
would not disclose details. 

“The procedures aren't finished yet," he 
said. “We should have the final result any 
day now."

Sweden: After the Davis Cup Victory, Discord 



G merited by Our Staff From Dtspattha 

STOCKHOLM — A simmer ing feud 
among Sweden’s tennis officials has 
erupted just 48 hours after their team 
won the Davis Cup title in Moscow. 

- All six members of Sweden's Davis 
Cup Committee announced Monday 
that they have stepped down. 

They said the last straw was a decision 
by the new Davis Cup captain, Carl-Axel 
Hageskog, to name Anders Jarryd as 
assistant coach without consulting the 
committee, the Svenska Dagbladet news- 
paper reported. 

Hageskog “seems to want to take ail 
decisions on his own,” it quoted one 
committee member, Thomas Eklund. 

Other committee members said the 


federation had ordered Hageskog to re- 
port directly to the federation rather 
than to the committee. 

Sweden’s 4-1 victory this weekend was 
attributed by many to excellent coopera- 
tion and high team spirit. Behind the 
facade, however, was the power struerie 


facade, however, was the power struggle 
between the board of the Swedish Tennis 
Federation and its Davis Cup Committee. 

Svenska Dagbladet said the commit- 
tee, formed in 1989 to re-in vigors te 
Swedish tennis, had told the federation 
before the final that it would resign, but 
would wait until this week before going 
public. 

Jonte Sjogren, who capped his tenure 
as Davis Cup captain with the victory in 
Russia, told a correspondent in Moscow 


that the conflict “is lamentable and very 
sad” for Swedish tennis. 

Cracks started showing last month, 
when the federation announced a new 
Davis Cup organization, headed by Ha- 
geskog. 

Hageskog, 40, has been a well-respect- 
ed Davis Cup trainer under Sjogren for 
years.' Few contested his appointment. 
But the committee was angered first 
when Hageskog dismissed its choice for 
Davis Cup trainer, Martin Bohm, the 
Svenska Dagbladet newspaper said. 

Bohm had worked closely with players 
such as Magnus Larsson and Thomas 
EnqvisL He quit as the federation's 
trainer when told he would not be part of 
the Davis Cup group. (AP, Reuters)

NEW YORK — Michael Jordan, the 
National Basketball Association superstar, 
may be a minor league baseball player 
these days, but he is still a major earner. 

Jordan, now getting less than $10,000 a 
year in salary, still ranks as the No. 1 
money maker in sports, according to 
Forbes Magazine. 

Its annual “Super 40" ranking of the top 
money makers- m sports, in its Dec. 19 
iss ue released Sunday, has Jordan canting 
$30.01 million this year, down from $36 
million in 1993. He topped the list for the 
third consecutive year. 

Jordan’s estimated income for 1994 is 
almost twice that of the list’s No. 2, center 
Shaquille O’Neal of the NBA’s Orlando 
Magic. He is estimated to have made $1 6.7 


ntfffl nn this year $4 2 million in salary and 
J12J5 million in outride income from en- 
dorsements and record deals. 

The senior golfers Jack Nicklaus and 
Arnold Palmer came in third and fourth on 
the strength of endorsements. Each earned 
only about $100,000 from golf, but Nick- 
i«n< earned a total of $14.8 million and 
Palmer took in $13.6 million. 

Austrian Formula One driver Gerhard 


Berger was fifth on the list at $13.5 million, 
followed by National Hockey League su- 
perstar Wayne Gretzky of the Los Angeles 
Kings at $13.5 million, then by boxers 
Michael Moorer ($12.1 million) and 
Evander Hdyfidd ($12.0 million). 

Tennis player Andre Agassi was ninth at 
$11.4 mini on. The British Indy car and 
Formula One driver Nigel Mansell round- 
ed OUt the top 10 at $1 13 milli on. 

Quarterback Joe Montana of the Kan- 
sas City Chiefs was the lop National Foot- 
ball League player, 12th at $103 million. 
He was just behind the No. 1 -ranked ten- 
nis player, Pete Sampras, at $10.6 million. 

A soccer player worked his way into the 
top 40 this year, with Roberto Baggio of 
Italy ranked 35th at $53 million. 

Will Clark, in 37th place at $5.2 zmllion, 
was the only major league baseball player 
on the list because many players with mul- 
tiyear contracts anticipated a strike or 
lockout and took lower salaries in 1994. 

Only two women made the top 40, both 
of them t ennis players. Steffi Graf was 
1 9th with $8.0 million and Gabriela Saba- 
tini was 39th at $4.9 million. Forbes said 
Olympic silver medal figure skater Nancy 
Kerrigan just missed making the list. 


CROSSWORD 


GENEVA — The French resort Tignes 
will stage two more men's World Cup races 
this weekend as pom snow conditions con- 
tinue to plague Alpine skiing organizers. 

A super-giant slalom called off in Val 
dls&re last weekend, and a giant slalom set 
for Alta Badia, Italy, on Sunday, wiD now 
be skied at Tignes on Dec. 10 and 1 1, the 
International Ski Federation said Monday. 

Tignes was an alternative venue last Sat- 
urday and Sunday, for a men's riant sla- 
lom and slalom switched from Sestriere, 
Italy, because of the poor snow there. 

This latest disruption followed a string 
of earlier postponements caused by warm 
weather, with only two of five scheduled 
men's events completed. 

There were also reports of insufficient 
snow at Sl Anton, Austria, and at Veyson- 
naz in the Swiss Valais region. ISF said 
decisions will be made Wednesday on the 
men’s and women’s races on Dec. 17 and 
18 in Sl Anton and Veysonnaz. 

If Veysonnaz has to withdraw, there is a 
possibility the two women’s races, a down- 
mil and slalom, could be rescheduled in 
North America, where five races have been 
held so far.

The Roots of Anger 


YY7ASHINGTON — In- “Young people of voting age 
tt depth studies ore now be- also said they were as ticked off 


mg conducted at every universi- 
ty and think tunic to discover 
what caused the fatal Demo- 
cratic train crash in November. 

Everyone agrees that the an- 
ger of the voters was the main 
reason why so 
many people 
voted Renubli- 





voted Republi- 
can. 

What is not 
agreed upon is 
the cause of 
that anger. 

Professor 
Dan Kilcup of 
the “None-of- 

the-Above In- ■» — . . ■ 

stitute of PoU- 

tics” showed me a paper he had 
written on the subject. 

He said, “The fury of the 
people manifested itself at the 
polls, but it wasn't the political 
issues that made them vote the 
way they did. They were furious 
about other things but the only 
way they could vent their rage 
was to vote against the incum- 
bents.” 

□ 

Professor Kilcup continued. 
“We decided to survey the an- 
ger factor in the electorate. 
When asked why they voted an 
incumbent congressman or sen- 
ator out of office, these were 
some of the reasons they gave. 

“ ‘The night before the elec- 
tion we told our son to be in by 
1 1 o’clock and he didn't come 
home until three. I was so furi- 
ous that I voted Republican for 
the first time.' " 


Teddy Bear Nets £110,000 

Reuters 

LONDON — A small brown 
teddy bear belonging to the 
world’s most noted collector — 
British Army Colonel Bob Hen- 
derson — was sold for £1 10,000 
(SI 71.500) at Christie's on 
Monday, doubling the world re- 
cord of £55,000 for a teddy. 


“Young people of voting age 
also stud they were as ticked off 
as their parents. One coed told 
us that she had to wait six hours 
to buy tickets for a Grateful 
Dead concert, and when she fi- 
nally reached the head of the 
line the only seats left were on 
the side. She said that if that 
didn't tell you something about 
what’s rotten with the political 
system nothing would.” 

a 

Professor Kilcup turned the 
page, “A housewife wrote. ‘I 
went out to the shopping mall 
last Saturday and it was a mess. 
I finally got to the store to buy 
some pantyhose and they didn't 
have my size. To make matters 
worse, the sales girl was ex- 
tremely rude. That's when I de- 
cided to send a message to 
Washington.’ 

“ “You want to know why I 
voted Republican?* a truck 
driver asked one of our inter- 
viewers. ‘Because I decided that 
if Clinton couldn't settle the 
baseball strike he wasn’t much 
of a world leader. You can't call 
yourself a great country if you 
pay your baseball players pea- 
nuts.’ ” 

The professor said, “The mis- 
take of the Democrats was that 
they underestimated the dis- 
content of the people. Many 
voters were angry over crime — 
not crime in the streets but the 
fact that the administration 
waffled on whether it was in 
favor of televising the O.J. 
Simpson trial Fear of being 
shut out of the courtroom pro- 
ceedings drove many people 
into the GOP camp ” 

“What about Proposition 187 
in California which called for 
an extremely punitive policy to- 
wards illegal aliens?” I mM 
Kilcup. 

“It played a major role in 
Beverly Hills. One respondent 
said that she voted for 187 after 
she hired an illegal alien to 
dean her house and the person 
kept refusing to dust the pi- 


Anniversary for Marcel Came: Will He Direct Again? 


By Alan Riding 

New York Times Service 

P ARIS — Marcd Came patted his paunch 
and pointed to the culprit, an arthritic knee 
that he also blames for the way be now shuffles 
around his Left Bank apartment. But once he 
had settled into his favorite armchair, the 
French movie veteran was again ready to di- 
rect. 

“I could do as Visconti mice did and work 
from a wheelchair,” he said, moving his arms as 
if he were suddenly mobile. “Nowadays you 
can follow everything on a little screen, and 1 
could go over to talk to the actors on wheels. 
But I doubt that any French producer would 
accept that” 

At the age of 88, just months before the 50th 
anniversary of the release of his much-loved 
movie classic, “Les Eafants du paradis,” Came 
is eagQ- to demonstrate that ne is still very 
much alive. He is full of ideas for a next movie, 
and if it is to be made, he wants it to be good. 

But he is also realistic. His last Elm, “La 
Merveflleuse Visite,” made 20 years ago, was 
not a success, and since then, no producer has 
been willing to back him. None, that is, except 
a French television company that invited him 
to make a film in five weeks. “Five weeks!” be 
exclaimed with disgust. 

His problems, though, had begun even earli- 
er with the arrival of France’s New Wave au- 
teurs in the late 1950s. “These youths were 
quite cynical,” he said. “They boasted, ‘We’re 
going to kill off the oldies and take their 
place.' ” And indeed, led by Francois Truffaut, 
they duly carried out thor threat 

Caret’s last box office hit “Les Tricheurs,” 
was made in 1958. After that French critics 
began turning up their noses at the studio- 
made; carefully scripted and technically metic- 
ulous films made by Carafe and his prewar 
generation. Instead, individualism and impro- 
visation became the rage. 

But the irony is that while Carafe’s career 
began to flounder, the popularity of “Les Ea- 
fants du paradis” kept growing. The Thfe&tre du 
Randagh in Paris’s 16th arrondissement has 
shown it twice weekly since 1968. And today, 
many critics still consider it to be the best 
French movie ever made. 

Starring Jean- Louis Barrault and Arletty and 
r unning three, and- a -quarter hours, the film 
was shot during the final year of the Nazi 
occupation of France, although it was released 
only in March 1945 aft o' the liberation. Built 
around the life of the 19th-century mim e Jean- 
Baptiste Deburau, it was the most lavish and 
expensive French film made until then. 



Carrie at home: His “Les Eufants du paradis” was released nearly 50 years ago. 


Yet if “Les Enfants du paradis” is a national 
monument, Came is not. “It makes me a bit sad 
to think Fm more appreciated abroad than in 
my own country,” be said. “Abrdad, there 
aren’t the same mean critics that we have here. 
In France, if your head gets a bit too high, they 
cut it off” 

Had be expected “Les Enfants du paradis” 
to become such a phenomenon, he was asked. 
“I cannot say yes,” he said, sighing at such an 
oft-posed question. “But I knew I was making a 
good film because all the actors and technicians 
woe good And I knew it was an important film 
because of its length and the resources at my 
disposal.” 

Yet it was far from certain the film would be 
made. The screenplay was by Jacques Prevert, 
who had written several of Carafe's prewar 
“poetic realism” films as well as his wartime 
hit, “Les Visiteurs dn soir.” But because Car- 
ofe’s chosen set designer, Alexandre Trauner, 
and composer, Joseph Kosma, were Jews, he 
had to disguise their involvement. 

At one point, when it was unclear if Barrault 


could join the cast, Gamfe even considered 
replacing him with Jacques Tati. 

Then, just as shooting began in the Victorine 
Studios in Nice in August 1943, Americans 
troops landed in Sicily and the collaborationist 
Vichy regime ordered everyone back to Paris. 

More problems followed The producer, Au- 
dit Faulvfe, was dismissed by Alfred Graven, the 
German impresario who had taken control of 
the French movie industry in 1940. Work cm the 
film resumed in Paris in November 1943, but by 
tbe time the production moved back to Nice, 
many of the sets had been damaged by storms. 

Camfe’s most painful memory, though, is of 
the day two French policemen came looking for 
an extra whose wife, they said had suffered an 
accident. Carafe hesitated but then calculated 
that if die man felt in danger he could hide in 
the crowd So the director took a megaphone 
and called out the man’s name. 

“Perhaps he was in the Resistance, perhaps 
he was a few, but we never heard of him again,” 
tbe director said “He was certainly shot, per- 
haps also tortured The police must have been 
working for the Gestapo. Why <fid he come 


forward? When his name was called, be should , 
have suspected It® should have.” j 

Ca wife sat quietly for a moment. “I have 
never forgiven myself.” he said softly. “I will 
relive that scene for the .rest of my days.” 

After the Germans took France in 1940, he 
whs adwdj had he considered Joining Jean 
Renoir, Rene Clair and other French directors 
in the United States? “I thought about it,” he 
“I wondered should I jean de Gaulle in 
England? But how could I help him? If 1 wait 
to the United States, what would 1 do? I didn’t 
cvai speak English.” 

He also dismissed the idea of joining the 
Resistance: “I have never handled a gun in my 
life,” he said “Also, Tin very sensitive to physi- 
cal pawi and I thought, if I am caught and 
tortured Fm likely to tell everything I know. So 
I found a way of working. But I laid down 
conditions. I would not make propaganda films 
and I would work only in France.” 

In the end only “Vitiumre du soir” was 
released during the occupation, and it was an 
enormous success, not least because it was seen 
as an allegory for a France that was surviving 
despite itshumiliation. “The sound of a beating 
heart has been used a thousand times in mov- 
ies, but hoe it meant France,” he said 
Carafe said he knew Jews were being perse- 
cuted, but he only learned “very very Tate” of 
the existence of concentration camps in France 
where Jews were held before deportation. 

“Fll tell you something strange, he contin- 

the Germans didn’t exist T^bey* would walk 
past them, bat it was as if they didn’t exist” 
From tbe liberation until 1974, Carafe made “ 
14 of his 21 feature films. But in his 1989 
memoirs, the director lists 36 postwar film 
projects that he but never completed 

n yflndfng several films that were later made by 
others, among than “Mary Poppins," “Germi- 
nal” and “La Rane Margot” 

His greatest disappointment was his failure 
to make “Mouche,” his adaptation of Guy de 
Maupassant’s novel about five young men who 
fall in love with the same young woman. He 
even began shooting the film in 2992, but alter 
10 days on locationne fdl ill and financing was 
cut off. “I wanted to finish my career with an 
optimistic' film to show that old men aren't 
necessarily , bitter,” he said 
Still, them is no doubting that he has lots of 
fight left in him. In Carafe’s most recent battle, 
Prfevert’s heiis have earned his wrath by block- 
ing his plan to colorize “Les Enfants du para- 
dis” as a way of reaching new audiences. “It's 
stupid” he said “The 18-year-old granddaugh- 
ter of the screenwriter has the same rights as the 
director. Wed, that’s France:”

F OR decades a thorn in its 
side, the folk singer Pete 
Seeger, 75, was acclaimed by 
much of official Washington, 
including President CEntoo, ai 
the Kennedy Center Honors 
show recognizing lifetime 
achievement in the perforating 
arts. Seeger practically wrote 
the songbookior the civil rights 
and antiwar movements of the 
1960s. He was blacklisted in 
the 1960s for refuting to answer 
questions about Communist af- 
filiations. Among this year’s 
other winners were Knit Doug- 
las, Aretha Frankfin, Morton 
Gould and Hal Prince. 



He. might not be as popular Aretha 
as the Beaties, even 24 years 
after their breakup, but Pope 
John Paid II is doing better than his most 
famous critic, Sinead O’Connor. “Live at 
the BBC,” a collection of 56 previously 
unreleased recordings by the Beatles, is 
No. 1 on the British album charts. The 
Pope is No. 53 with “Tbe Rosary,” his 
recital of Latin prayers. But that’s ahea/i 
of O'Connor’s “Universal Mother,” at'

No. 80. O’Connor tore up a picture of the 
Pope two years ago on live television.

A letter by ex-Beatle John Lennon at- 
tacJonglindaMcCartney, the wife of Paul 
McCartney, sold for $92,000 at a Los 


the McCartneys, urges Linda 
to “get off your high horse!” 
It appears to be in response to 
her criticism of remarks that 
Lennon had made about the 
Beatles. “Do you really think 
most of today's art came ab<‘ it 
because of the Beatles? 1 don't 
think" you’re that insane — 
Paul — do you believe that? 
When you stop believing it 
you might wake up!” the letter 
read in pan.

Loiris Andandoss, 77, is not too im- 
pressed that he has just published his 50th 
book. “There is no great virtue in quanti- 
ty,” he says. “I remind myself that Entity 
Bronte wrote a single novel and then she 
died at 29.”
