-NEW YORK — The stock market regained 
its composure Monday, but there ware as many 
opinions as investors on whether the .uptick in 
U.S. interest rates would eventually pull money 
om of stocks or just cause a blip in the indexes. 
Volatility wasthe only sore tiling.

performed the broader market because its blue- 
chip issues represented a haven in stormy 
weather. Positive: news for Aluminum Compa- 
ny of America and international Business Ma- 
chines Carpi, two components of the Dow,' 
helped draw hinds into tixse issues;

Bond prices also slipped, raising yields on 30-

the next month or so. 

- There was no panic. but the big question was 
whether this meant the flood of cash that has 
floated the market up almost 1,000 points in 18

Although long expected, the aunomxxntent

A Bosnian Muslim tfig g m g a grave Monday lor one of the victims of the mortar attack. 

By Craig R. Whitney 

New York Tima Service 

BONN — The United States and its NATO 
allies are approaching another turning point in 
the history of their failure, and that of [he 
United Nations, to halt the atrocities on Eu- 
rope's eastern doorstep. 

On Monday, in outraged reaction to the 
deaths of 68 people in Sarajevo over the week- 
end in a mortar attack that may or may not 
have been hunched by Serbs besieging the city, 
the 12 countries of the European Union met in 
Brussels and threatened “all the means neces- 
sary. including the use of air power,** unless the 
siege ended. 

But they remained divided about how and 
when to actually cany out the threat, just as 
they were last May when the United States 
came to them with a proposal to use air power 
to try to bring about a negotiated settlement 
Now as then, the Europeans will not act unless 
the United States leads them into action, and. 
now as then, there are many good reasons why 
it may not 

For nearly two years, the European allies 
have tried but failed to bring about a negotiated 
settlement to the war in Bosztia-Herzegovina. 
The allies have also consistently rejected the 
idea that a settlement could be imposed by 
outside military force. 

The Europeans rebuffed the Clinton admin- 
istration last spring when it proposed lifting the 
arms embargo on all of former Yugoslavia to 
give the Bosnian Muslims a chance to arm 
themselves in self-defense, and bombing the 
Serbs' artillery positions and supply lines unless 
they agreed to peace. 

Since then, the United States has persuaded 
the NATO allies to threaten the Serbs with 
bombing if they did not stop their attacks, but 
the Europeans have been reluctant to cany out 
the threat, with the British the most reluctant of 
all because of the possibility of retaliation 
against their troops on the ground with the UN 
in Bosnia- 

So the North Atlantic Treaty Organization 

agreed last August not to drop any bombs 
unless the UN secretaiy-geoeral, Butros Butros 
Ghali, asked it to. 

Will he? Diplomats and officials in Europe 
are not dear about this, nor even about whether 
air strikes would do any good. What they are 
dear about is that the alliance will do nothing 
in Bosnia unless the United Slates leads the 
way. and that whatever Mr. Clinton decides 
will determine the future credibility of his ad- 
ministration and of the alliance as well. 

Frustration over past failures has created a 
c lima te of extreme caution and even disirusL 
At the European Union foreign ministers meet- 


ing in Brussels on Monday, the British were still 
hesitant, and some officials here suspect that 
the French were looking for a way w make the 
United States look responsible if they decided 
to withdraw their forces from Bosnia. 

Chancellor Helmut Kohl, whose country has 
no troops there and no plans to send any, 
concluded after the NATO summit in Brussels 
last month that the countries with troops in 
Bosnia felt that the mission was becoming 

There is a tendency by some countries,'’ the 
German foreign minister, Klaus KinkeL said 
last week, “to wonder whether it makes sense to 
keep peacekeeping troops there if there is no 
willingness to make peace, and I admit that I 
can understood them." 

European and American military and politi- 
cal officials in Bonn agree that the only way to 
impose peace in Bosnia now would be by send- 
ing in a large, U.S.-led international force like 
the one that expelled Iraq from Kuwait three 
years ago. 

“The United States is not ready. NATO is 
not prepared to send armies into Yugoslavia to 
enforce an agreement against the will of the 
peoples there,'’ Secretary of Defense William 3. 
Perry said at a meeting of European defense

Clinton’s ’95 Budget Blueprint: A Tight Design 

See MARKET, Page 10 


Nek- fork Tima Service 

J —President Bill Cfaiton ouMonctoy sent 
II SlJTtriJSob budget proposal that reflected the 
gpvtynmenl'sliscal constraints, combining a range of spending 
cuts with modest new initiatives to promote technology, fight 
crime andexpand educational opportunity, . 

Administration officials said the plan represented a reorder- 
ing of the national priorities. But there is little sweeping or 
grand in tbe administration's budget blueprint. 

Hnandngf or xp^orpolky goals, such as overi^uling health 
care and wefrare, will either be proposed later or presented, for 
accounting purposes, as separate from the budget 

Instead, Mr. Gmiao. and his fiscal advisers have produced a 
budge* plan that is permeated by the bitter reality facing a 
Democratic president who came to office with grand ideas bat 
with little money to pay for them. 

Wbite House officials said the new budget, which would 
rediax appropriations for seven of the 14 cabinet- level depart- 
ments and reduce the projected deficit to $176 billion from 
: $302 bnUon, would set tbe nation on the correct path. 

Military spending, however, will continue to rise. 

“If the Congress adopts it, it will keep tbe deficit coming 
down, it will keep interest rates down, it will send a dear signal 
to the Fed and to the rest of the world that we mean business 
and that the investment dimate will continue,” Mr. CKnion 

said in a speech to a business group in Houston. “These tower 
interest rates, if they can be maintained will save over S20 
billion in deficit in next year's budget atone and SI50 
billion in the next five years.” 

Much of the shape of the proposal was determined by the 
deficit reduction agreement jpassed last year, which set targets 
for taxes and spending for me next few years. In addition, the 
portion of the budget going to entitlement programs and 

Mifitaiy spending to contract I percent after inflation. Page 5. 

interest on the national debt has steadily risen for the last 
decade. That leaves Mr. Clinton little room for maneuver. 

As a result, administration officials said, much of the presi- 
dent's proposed budget is designed to by the groundwork for 
tbe battles to come over the health care plan. 

Mr. Clinton and his aides emphasized that the decline in the 
projected deficit represented the first lime the deficit has 
dropped for three consecutive years since Harry Truman was 

But Leon E Panetta, the While House budget director, said 
the deficit could continue to shrink only if the fastest-growing 
areas of the budget — including health" care spending — were 
brought under control. 

“If we want to stay on the deficit-reduction track that we’re 
now embarked on," he said, “we've got to begin to address 

these areas, particularly health care, because health care is the 
largest culprit in the entitlement programs right now in terms 
of being out of control." 

Administration officials were happy to emphasize the pain 
of cutting tbe budget, including actions they said would redi- 
rect money from operating subsidies for mass transit, heating 
aid for the poor and public housing constructions to more 
efficient programs that serve the same needs. 

Yet, the budget also contains about $8 billion in new 
spending for programs ranging from Head Start and communi- 
ty policing to drug treatment and job training. 

The dissociated Press reported from Washington: 

Republicans welcomed the cuts Mr. Clinton proposed, but 
chastised him for using some of the savings to beef up other 

Senator Pete Domenici of New Mexico, ranking Republican 
on the Senate Budget Committee, said: “They aren't really 
reducing the deficit because the savings don’t get applied to the 
deficit. The savings make room for other spending." 

Because of a robust economy and the deficit-cutting pack- 
age. the president projects next year's shortfall at $176.1 
billion, the best showing since the $1523 billion gap of 1989. 
That is also $126 billion less than Mr. Clinton had expected for 
1995 a year ago. The government would spend 513)8 trillion

GAZA QTY, Isrjtfh'-Occupied Gaza Strip — With delicate 
brash strokes, Maysara Barood gave life to the illustration of a 
snake wrapping around an obw tree in pmsuit of an eagle. 

' What was unusual about Mr. Baroud’s painting was not the 
familiar symbols of Palestinian nationmism, inefudmg tbe 
checkered kaffiyeh scarf on;the wings of the eagle arid the 
minarets of Jerusalem in the distance, Whatmade this painting 
stand out was its location. 

Mr . BaromTs gallery jsr the sandy streets of die Israeti- 
occupied Gaza Strk>, ids canvas the side of a friend’s dnder-

Mr.Earoud,' 18, b among a new genre of l^Ieaiman street 
painters wbo have emerged since tire peace accord was signed 
between farad, mid the Palestine LiberatiM Organization on 
Sept. 13. Suddenly, (2k walls of Gaza are blooming with 
caricatures and rotorful murals. 


More significant, the tone of their wort: is becoming some- 
what less antagonistic toward Israel aod more celebratory. 
There are still ufusirations of Kalashnikovs and knives, but the 
walls are now filling with slogans extolling Palestinian leaders 
and organizations. 

Although Mr. Baroud portrayed Israel as a snake in his last 
pain tin g he said that as soon as the Israeli soldiers begin 
pulling out of Gaza, “I will draw a picture for kids to tell them 
tbe era of stones is over." . , 

The walls of Gaza are the Palestinians version of a news 
ticker tape, ( fora has no local daily newspaper, and the Arabic 
papers from Jerusalem that circulate here are censored by 
Israel. So the walls are a media outlet ~ some Palestin- 
ians rail a “newspaper without censorship." 

Ossama Ali i*s a, & tailor by trade and aspiring artist by 
hobby, was fflring out the window of a Gaza taxi recently as 
the endless, flowery graffiti whizred by. On <me wall, the 
freshly painted word “Palestine" in Arabic turned into a boat, 
with an automatic rifle as the mast 


“Anybody can do that,” Mr. Ali Issa, 28, said with a 
grimace. “Anyone can write graffiti, even with spelling mis- 
takes. But painting, only tbe artist can do it. And a good 
picture, like a caricature, needs no further comment." 

The art also reflects volatile public opinion. The Palestin- 
ians’ mood soared after tbe peace agreement but has since 
plummeted as Israel’s withdrawal has been delayed. Grand 
tributes to the PLO chairman, Yasser Arafat, have been 
defaced in some neighborhoods. 

What is surprising about the street artists is that most are not 
young firebrands, but dedicated artists, not the type to be 
slipping out in the night in masks, with cans of spray paint. 

Fayez A Sirsawi, director of an an program at the Gaza 
YMC A said the political struggle often overwhelmed artists, 
especially the young. Before and during the intifada, he said, 
“art was provocative and fulfilled political ideas." He added: 
"But after the peace agreement, you could fed the change. We 
looked at the walls, and we found they were more optimistic 
than before."

Sees Decision 
On Sarajevo 
Within Days 

Blaming Serbs in Attack, 
He Says NATO Options 
Go Beyond UN Scenario 

Compiled A Our Staff FK W Dispatches 

WASHINGTON — Secretary of Suie War- 
ren M. Christopher accused Bosnian Serbs on 
Monday of a pattern of shelling against civil- 
ians and said that NATO would decide on a 
response within days. 

Speaking at a State Department press confer- 
ence, Mr. Christopher reaffirmed that a “whole 
range of options." including military retaliation 
for the mortar attack on the market in the Old 
Town of Sarajevo, were under consideration by 
the Western alliance. 

Mr. Christopher said the possibilities for 
retaliation go beyond those pos^ by the UN 
secretary-general, Butros Butros Ghali, who 
asked NATO on Sunday io approve punitive 
air strikes following the attack. Sixty-eight peo- 
ple were killed and more than 200 wounded by 
the mortar that hit the market Saturday. 

“We will respond to the specific, rather nar- 
row request of Butros Ghali. which we think is 
appropriate and will support, but we will not be 
limited to that," Mr. Chnstopher said. 

President Bill Gin ion said in Houston ihat 
the United States supported the UN request for 
retaliatory air strikes. 

“I have directed our representatives at 
NATO to support the secretary-general’s ro- 
quet when it is discussed there in the next 
couple or days." he said. 

Defense Secretary William J. Perry said 
Monday that the United States would propose 
options to NATO this week for allied action in 
Bosnia, possibly including air strikes. 

“By Wednesday, we will be telling the world 
what we believe in this area.” he said. “We will 
have a concrete set of proposals about how to 
deal with the problem." 

“The issue is what strategic options can be 
taken that can somehow accelerate the peace 
process and get it to a quick and satisfactory 
conclusion," be said. 

“To the extent any use at ail of air strikes 
furthers that strategic abjective, then it is worth 
consideration. To the extent air strikes slow 
that down and put it off ihe track, we ought to 
reject them categorically." 

Mr. Christopher did not explain what other 
actions might be taken, but he said that apart 
from the attack Saturday — for which there was 
only a strong presumption of Bosnian Serb 
responsibility — the Serbs had carried out a 
senes of assaults on civilians. 

While acknowledging that there has been no 
official finding that Bosnian Serbs fired the 
mortar into the marketplace, he said Serbs were 
found responsible for the recent shelling of a 
food line and other attacks. 

The death toll from Saturday’s shelling “was 
not only the worst since this tragic conflict 
began, it is also a pan of a pattern of shelling of 
civilian areas by Serb artillery that has contin- 
ued despite NATO’s repeated warnings." Mr. 

Christopher said. 

“We expect that the North Atlantic Council 
will decide on a course of action or an overall 
strategy" in a few days, he said. 

Mr. Christopher’s statement came as the 
chairman of die House Foreign Affairs Com- 
mittee called for using NATO air strikes against 
the Serbs besieging Sarajevo, and a senior Re- 
publican senator said it was time to end the 
“indecisiveness of NATO." 

The committee chairman. Representative 
Lee H. Hamilton. Democrat of Indiana, and 
Senator Richard G. Lugar. Republican of Indi- 
ana, agreed during a joint appearance cm NBC 
on Monday that it was time to use air power, 
but they differed on how broad the military 
response should be. 

Mr. Hamilton said air strikes were “in order

Hope Is Fading 
For Inspections 
In North Korea 

By R. Jeffrey Smith 

If'iuAingiiwi Past Service 

VIENNA — As North Korea’s decision to 
spurn nuclear inspections marks a one-year 
anniversary this month, the time for negotiating 
with the hard-line Communist state by most 
accounts has nearly run out. 

Officials in Washington desperately have 
sought to keep the prospect of a diplomatic 
solution to the inspection dispute alive, even to 
ibe point of seeking private assurances from the 
International Atomic Energy Agency last De- 
cember that the matter was not ready to be 
referred to the UN Security Council. 

But the Vienna-based inspectors and senior 
staff of the atomic agency, wbo have tried 
repeatedly and unsuccessfully to get North Ko- 
rea’s compliance with a 1992 ’inspection pledge, 
said in interviews here that they had exhausted 
their patience for niggling with the country and 
would be satisfied if the agency’s board of 
governors handed the matter off to the United 

Several senior U.S. officials, including a fer- 
vent supporter of the yearlong diplomatic ef- 
fort. said last week that they agreed that North 
Korea must accept inspections of all of its 
declared nuclear facilities no later than Feb. 21- 
22, when the atomic agency's board is sched- 
uled to discuss calling for Securin' Council 

That stance represents a reversal of the Clin- 
ton administration’s long-standing desire to put 
off & direct confrontation with the Communist 
nation by buying time for more diplomatic 
dialogue aimed at opening up North Korea’s 
nuclear facilities to intenunonal inspection.

Outfitting an Army? East Germans Are Deep in Surplus WOKLD BRIEFS 

By Rick Atkinson 

Washington Past Service 

FURSTENWALDE, Germany — They 
come in groups, and they come alone. They 
come from farms and villages in Eastern 
Germany, or from Hamburg and Munich 
and other big dues in the West. They come 
by the thousands to a drafty warehouse in 
the middle of nowhere for what may be the 
world’s biggest cash-and-carry rummage 

For sale: One army, slightly used. 

Outside this rural town, 32 kilometers 
(20 miles) east of Berlin, the final dismem- 
berment of the defunct East German Army 
has begun with a huge clearance sale. 

Here, the German government is amass- 
ing the more prosaic items once needed to 
keep a half-million troops in fighting trim: 
binoculars and buckets, tarpaulins and tire 
pumps, shovels and signal flags. Every- 
thing must go. 

“If we determine that the prices are too 

high, it’s possible that well lower them 
later," said Peter Dirfard. operations direc- 
tor for the company supervising the sale for 
Bonn. “But right now we’re selling every- 

On a recent day, 1400 buyers swept 
through the warehouse spending 108X100 
Deutsche marks ($61,000). They paid Si. 40 
each for 5-liter (1.3-gallon) jerricans; S3 for 
big glass jugs suitable for fomenting 
homemade wine, and Sll for leather map 
cases, complete with colored pencils, stop- 
watch and straight edge. 

Perhaps the most popular items are Zeiss 
binoculars at S8S a pair. More than 3,000 
have been sold since the warehouse opened 
Dec. 16. Some profess interest in bird- 
watching. Rdmund Schmidt, a retired East 
Berliner, joked that his pair would be 
handy for keeping an eye on the neighbor*. 

So much mat6rid has been found in 
about 80 East German depots that Mr. 
Dirfard estimates it could take three years 

to sdl it all. Two more warehouses will 
open this month, and a fourth, near Leip- 
zig, is to begin operations in March. 

As customers laden with booty exit 
through one door in the Fuistenwalde 
warehouse, forklifts haul in new crates of 
pickaxes and dre chains through another. 

Not to be f bund in the inventory here are 
the more lethal trappings of East German 
military power. Since shortly after German 
reunification in 1990, the Bonn govern- 
ment has been selling, scrapping or refur- 
bishing the immense armory inherited 

from the East That includes nearly 600 
modern tanks, 295,000 tons of mumtioos, 
more than a million pistols and 4400 tons 
of rocket propellant. 

Less than 20 percent of the arsenal is 
considered usable by the German military 
or other federal agencies. Thai includes 24 
MiG-29 fighters and nearly 900 armored 
personnel carriers. 

But, as Mr. Dirfard noted, Bonn’s 
preunification army “had about 490,000 

soldiers, and now it’s going down to 
around 360,000, so they have a great sur- 
plus of their own.” 

Consequently, the great majority of East 
German materiel is excess, including 
26446 rocket-propelled grenades, 549 T~72; 
t anks and 251 Mfc-21s. 

Some equipment has been demilitarized 
and sa)d abroad, including many of the. 
East German Navy’s 192 ships. Scores of 
MiGs and hundreds of armored vehicles 
and artillery tubes have been cut into 

German officials stress that they are tak- 
ing pains to prevent surplus weapons from 
falling into the wrong hands. 

In addition to weapons, the government 
is disposing of 85,000 East Goman Army 
vehicles, including 52,000 trucks. At least 
9,000 vehicles have been sent to Russia and 
other republics of the formei Soviet 
Union; thousands of others are an public 
sale at huge lots. Field kitchens, sanitation 
equipment and power generators have 

been donated to charitab le organizations 
or commumtks in Eastern Germany. . 

In Ffirstenwalde, however, the offerings 
do not get much more exotic than pidkaxes 
and bands of hand soap. Few buyer# seem 
animated by sentimental impulses;' most, 
like the hunter from Brandeiburg boyinga 
set of infrared lights “to keep my dogs 
warm," are looking for bargains. 

The volume of stuff suggests how much 
of East Germany's wealth went into outfit- 
ting its army. Here, for example, an enter- 
prising mechanic can find not a few odds 
and ends for his tool chest bnt thousands 
upon thousands of wrenches.

President Brittan? 
Europe Trade Chief 
Tries the Hard Sell 

By Tom Buerkle 

International Herald Tribune 

BRUSSELS — For Sir Leon 
Brilian, the European trade chief, a 
hectic travel pace didn't stop with 
December's world trade agree- 

But rather than shuttling to 
Washington, Tokyo and Geneva to 
push for lower tariffs, these days 
Sir Leon is making the rounds erf 
European capitals to press his can- 
didacy to succeed Jacques Delors 
as president of the European Com- 

With visits to The Hague, Rome 
and Madrid in recent weeks, Sir 
Leon has sought to capitalize on 
the accolades be won for pulling off 
a trade deal that satisfied free-mar- 
keteers in Britain and Germany 
while still giving France conces- 
sions on agn culture and movies. 

Keeping his name in the head- 
lines appears to be the best way of 
taking on the perceived front-run- 
ner for the post. Prime Minister 
Ruud Lubbera of the Netherlands. 

“As he's a challenger, he’s mak- 
ing a real campaign,” said a Euro- 
pean Union official in Brussels. 
“That is his chance. The question 
is, will Paris back him?” 

Sir Leon has been trying to mod- 
erate his image as an economic ul- 
traliberal, earned through his de- 
fense of free trade last year and his 
vigorous fights against state aid to 
industry in his previous post as 
Europe’s competition commission- 

Prior to his visit to Madrid last 
week, he boasted to the Spanish 
daily El Pais that although Britain 
was supporting his candidacy, “Ev- 
erybody knows that my views 
aren't the same as those of the Brit- 
ish government.” 

The unusual public campaign 
sheds some light on the secretive 
process of picking a president of 
the European Commission, the Eu- 
ropean Union's executive agency. 
The decision normally is taken be- 
hind closed doors by heads or gov- 
ernment, who are expected to 
anoint a successor at their summit 
meeting on the Greek island of 
Corfu in June. 

The race also comes at a critical 
lime for the commission, which is 
largely bereft of direction as Mr. 
Delois approaches the end of his 
10-year reign this December and 
most of his 16 commissioners pre- 
pare to depart

of the past decade, when the Delors 
commission issued hundreds erf 
laws to establish Europe’s single 
market and was a driving force be- 
hind the Treaty on European 
Union, many EU officials believe 
the commission should be less of an 
initiator and more of an adminis- 

“We have to turn into an imple- 
mentation agency,” said an official 
dose to Set Leon. 

Whatever the commission's role, 
Mr. Lubbers remains the most-like- 
ly candidate to take charge of it, 
EU officials say. As a Christian 
Democrat from a small state that 
has never held the presidency, he 
would be an ideal successor to Mr. 
Delors, a French Socialist. 

Moreover, as prime minis ter for 
the past 1 1 years, Ik is one of the 
senior members of the exclusive 
group that win make the final deri- 

“He's from the club," the EU 
official said. 

As the inside candidate, Mr. 
Lubbers is keeping a low profile. 
His spokesman said the Dutch 
leader was more concerned now 
about local and parliamentary elec- 
tions in March and May than in 
European affairs. In any case; he 
added, “Maybe the best campaign 
at this moment is to keep your 
mouth shut" 

Sir Leon also hails from the po- 
litical right, however, and support- 
ers say he is the most pro-European 
candidate that Britain’s Conserva- 
tive Party could ever put forward. 

Officially, Sr Leon also denies 
any campaigning. A spokesman 
said his trips were part of an effort 
to wrap up details of the Uruguay 
Round trade deal 

But Sir Leon's travel agenda has 
extended beyond trade, including 
sympathetic comments about Ita- 
ly’s efforts to privatize its debt- 
ridden state industries and open its 
market to imports of Japanese 
automobiles, and support for 
Spain’s demands for a more-active 
EU pdicy toward the countries of 
North Africa. 

Next month, he is due to publish 
a book entitled, “The Europe We 
Need." Officials dose to him say it 
wQl encompass ideas he has spelled 
out in recent months to bridge the 
gap between Euro-skeptics and in- 
tegrationists, such as calling for 
more-independent interest-rate 
policies by member states while 
still supporting the eventual goal of 
a single currency. In other words, 
no federal United States of Europe 
but more than just a glorified free- 
trade area. 

“Leon has to establish himself 
more in public in order to influence 
the inner circle,” said an aide. “He 
will certainly give Lubbers a run 
for his money." 

Ultimately, aides and EU offi- 
cials say Sir Leon's chances will 
rest on whether he can persuade 
PbrU that bis success in accommo- 
dating their demands during the 
trade talks should be repaid with 
the presidency. His supporters are 
confident, pointing out that France 
has clashed often with the Nether- 
lands over its free-trade policy.

German Neo-Nazis Are Imprisoned for Killing

guilty of murder and infbeting grievous bodi-

that “Jews have to burn,” brutally attacked 
Karl Hans Rohn, a Wuppertal butcher in 
November 1992. They had been drinking 
heavily. \ 

Judge Watty said: "As long as there are

Mandela’s Harsh Message to Whites

Hate York Times Service 

JOHANNESBURG —Nelson Mandela had 
watched a cow being artificially inseminated. 
He had cuddled some children and kicked a 
soccer ball for photographers. He had reveled 
in the intoxicating pandemonium of a star- 
struck black township. 

It was time for the candidate to meet white 
voters, and the conventions erf this Western- 
style political campaign seemed to call for an 
how or two of gentle courtship. 

The 400 white businessmen and academics 
who waited politely in the civic center of Potchr 
efstroom. a farm center in the Afrikaner heart- 
land, were moderates by local standards, not 
hostile, but wary of the man they assume win be 
their next presidenL They hoped to be reas- 

Instead, the man introduced to than as 
“Comrade PresidenL Nelson Mandela” was less 
a suitor than a Dutch Reformed pastor facing a 
congregation of tinners and brooking no ex- 
cuses. He upbraided them as selfish, hypocriti- 
cal and rarisL 

“You are interested only in whites, not in the 
people of South Africa,” he scolded, exasperat- 
ed by their appeals to be left alone and their 
fears of the Communists among his friends. 
“Why should I even listen to youT 

He had words of reconciliation, too. but the 
essential message was clean You are not in 
charge here anymore. Get used to it. 

With nearly 12 weeks until South Africa's 
first free elections in April, and some parties 
still deciding whether to join the contest, there 
has already been a palpable shift of power from 
the lame-duck white government to the black 
majority, and to the main custodian of its 
aspirations, Mr. Mandela. 

As he barnstormed this week across three of 
South Africa's four provinces, be was no longer 
the negotiator and compromiser. He was re- 

establishing himself as the man who will bring 
dramatic change 

Mr. Mandela's itinerary is a daily reminder 
of how much remains to be changed. 

Despite the repeal of segregation laws, South 
Africa remains, by force of social pressure and 
economic inertia, a constellation of separate 

The candidate's schedule listed a series of 
white towns — Fotchefstroom, Sasolburg, 
Bothaville. Kroons tad — with cozy houses, 
neat lawns, paved streets and supermarkets. 

But usually the Mandela motorcade by- 
passed the comfortable white towns accus-

tamed to being the center of attention and 
headed for the dusty, impoverished satellites 
where the newly enfranchised majority lives. 

These places — Ikageng, Zamdda, Kgot- 
song, Maokeng — are sometimes unmarked or 
mislabeled, and always out of tight of the white 
minority. But they are more populous than the 
white towns and growing with a relentless ac- 
cretion of squatter shacks. 

As Mr. Mandela passed the commercial ar- 
eas where all races stop, many blacks stepped 
forward and raised their fists, while whites 
retreated into doorways and glowered. 

The motorcade would roll onto a barren 
soccer field surrounded by rickety bleachers, 
and the township would erupt in a show of 
delirium surpassing even the one that greeted 
Mr. Mandela '5 release from prison four yearn 
ago. This, after aR is their own release. 

The throngs hung from lampposts and dung 
to fence lops. They filled the bleachers under a 
blaze of sun umbrellas, and dimbed to the 

corrugated iron canopies, chanting and danc- 
ing. ‘ . 

Poll-takers reckon Mr. Mandela's support 
among whites at 1 or 2 percentage points. In the . 
black townships it seemed that , his support , 
could be better measured with a seismograph ■ 
than a poflL 

In Ikageog and other towns, the majorettes 
came from the high school, the township rock 
band played, former guerrillas arrived in cam- 
ouflage uniforms, and women’s choirs paraded, 
tinging: “Forward we are marching to the peo- 
ple’s government.” 

The message Mr. Mandela brings to black 
voters is ambiguous. 

As the man whose party is expected to domi- 
nate the next gov e rn m ent, he wants to dampen 
utopian expectations. And so he counsels real- 

But as a candidate who craves the largest 
possible majority, he wants voters to under- 
stand that Ik did not bargain away their futures 
in all those years of negotiationswrth President 
Frederik W. de Klerk. He intends to be the 
president of the neglected. 

Towards whites and political opponents Mr. 
Mandela urges tolerance, often Ulnstrating the 
pant by appearing with white officials from 
nearby towns, or by reminiscing about the 
kindly Afrikaner jailers who, during his 27 
years in prison, brought him newspapers and 
extra rations and called the inmates “gentle- 

He rebukes those who have bedded Mr. de 
Klerk and menaced canvassers for rival parties. 

But he no longer talks of coexisting with Mr. 
de Klerk’s National Party after the elections. 
He talks of crashing h. 

“We have buried that National Party on 
which you pin your faith," he told the whites in 
Poicfaefstroom. “The National Party, after 
April 27, will be a forgotten factor in this

California Politics 

Aftermafli Rearranges the Outlook 
For Wilson and Gubernatorial Rivals 

By Jane Gross 

. . New York Tunes Service 

LOS ANGELES — The deadly earthquake that moved mountains and 
toppled buildings here last mama also changed the political landscape of 
California, shifting the terrain in a crucial race that will pit an on pop alar 
Republican governor against one of two Democratic challengers for his 

There is widespread agreement that the earthquake on Jan. 17 breathed 
new life into the political fortunes of Governor Pete Wilson. The quake 
also jump-started the underdog primary campai g n of John Garamendi, 
the state insurance commissioner, and raised questions about whether 
Kathleen Brown, the California treasurer and Democratic front-runner, 
is the inevitable winner she once seemed in the June primary. 

The main benefkaary of California's latest calamity, political experts in 
both parties agree, is 'Governor Wilson, a practiced hrad at coping with 
disasters. -IBs job performance ratings improved in the weeks after the 
eanlupiake, accar ding to a statewide poU 

The governor, who has issued disaster declarations for fires, floods, 
riots; toxic spills and droughts in 56 of the state's 58 counties since taking 
office in 1991, toured (he devastated areas after the earthquake in his 
trademark windbreaker ibid promised to press the Gin ton administra- 
' tion for all the help the state needs. 

California seems to be on the verge of a federal windfall, with an $8-5 
biffion aid package already approved by the House of Representatives. It 
- is- expected to dear the Senate this wedc rad be signed by President KD 

Tony Coefho, a Californian who is a former Democratic leader in 
Congress, is one of many political analysts who gives Mr. Wilson high 
marksfor his recent performance and points to an upswing in his ratings, 
which inched back last week to where they had been before protracted 
budget battles in Sacramento two yearn ago. 

in the latest Field PoU the governor gels a good or exceflent job rating 
from 30 potent of Californians, up from 25 potent two weeks ago. And 
34 percent now grade him as poor or very poor, down from 40 percent 
before the quakn .The survey of 525 adults, conducted on Jan. 27-3 1, has a 
margin of sampling error of plus or minus five percentage points. 

And his job approval rating could get better, Mr. Coelho said. “It isn’t 
even necessary that he have all the answers or deliver the goods. It's an 
attitudioal thing.” 

Mr. Garamendi, who trails Ms. Brown by IS points in the polls, 
attracted attention after the quake by calling for tax increases to pay for 
rebuilding. The other candidates were more cautious. 

“Because John is carving out a unique position, that helps him flesh oat 
his identity,” said Sieve Merksamer, a Republican strategist who was 
chief of staff for Governor George Deukmejian in 1989. when an 
earthquake hit the San Francisco Bay Area. Mr. Deukmejian, otherwise 
adamant about bidding the Hne on taxes, took quick action then by 
raising the sales tax one-fourth of a cent for 13 months, which yielded 
$800 millio n for reconstruction. 

: Mr. Garamendi is urging a similar approach, calling fra a temporary 
increase in the sales tax to rebuild, particularly schools, and a temporary 
increase in the gasoline tax to repair the damaged freeways and upgrade 
others to protect against future quakes. 

ML GaramendTs call fra new taxes contrasts sharply with the wait- 
and-see recommradatia&s of Mr. Wilson rad Ms. Brown. 

The gqyanra is pressiiu the federal government to reimburse the state 
for the entire cost af rebmding, and says he prefers bond issues to taxes if 
more money must he raised Ms. Brown says it is premature to call for 
new taxes until a full accounting of damages is made, which is expected 
this week hr the meantime, she has combed the books in the treasurer's 
office and identified SI3 hflKon available for reconstruction, from bond 
issues approved by voters but not sold, and from bridge loans. 

Publicly, aides to bath Mr. Wilson and Ms. Brown say that taxes that 
were app ropriate after the 1989 earthquake are not appropriate today. 
The state was booming then, they say, but is mired in recession now.

• NASA gave up Monday on releasing a science sateflfte from the 
shuttle Discovery because of a faulty guidance system. The 513.5 
million Wake Shield Facility, a 12-foot (4-meter) saucer-shaped

United (or Not), 
Perot & Co. Forge 
Broad ’94 Agenda 

By Dan BaJz 

Washington Post Service 

DALLAS — Barely a year after 
he won more than 19 million votes 
for president and three months af- 
ter losing the debate over Lhe North 
American Free Trade Agreement, 
Ross Perot and his followers are 
struggling to shape a lasting politi- 
cal movement. 

The state leaders of United We 
Stand America, meeting in Dallas 
to debate their future, faced serious 
questions about whether Mr. Per- 
ot's claim last week that the coun- 
try “ain’t seen nothing yet” was 
more than an idle boast. 

Are they the key to unlocking the 
power of millions of swing voters in 
America? Can they turn debates in 
Congress and decide the outcome 
of dose elections this fall, or are 
they merdv an information trans- 
mission belt for interested voters? 

Are they a new political party in 
the making, or a group so given to 
fragmentation that their impact 
wfil splinter? And can they grow 
and prosper when Mr. Perot's cred- 
ibility and personal popularity 
have tumbled? 

The leaders of the organization 
emerged Sunday with an action 
plan for 1994 and some clues about 
how they see their group. 

The leaders outlined 11 issues, 
including the balanced-budget 
amendment, health care reform, 
the line-item veto and campaign 
finance reform, as their legislative 
priorities for the year. 

But they failed to stale which of 
that long list was the most impor- 
tant, and said that on health care, 
for example, they had no consensus 

At the same time, they said they 
would seek to maximize turnout in 
this year’s elections, educate voters 
on toe records of incumbents and 
challengers, and in some cases seek 
out candidates to run for office. 

The three davs of meetings in 
Dallas marked the rad of a year of 
organizing by Mr. Perot, who trav- 
eled to 49 states last year. The 
group now has state directors in aQ 
50 states, paid by the Dallas head- 
quarters, as well as elected state 
chairmen and congressional dis- 
trict leaders in most districts in the 

The Texas billionaire referred to 
questions about the numbers as 
“silly putty” B. T. Sisson, the Ne- 
vada state chairman, added that 

“whatever the numbers are, we 
have enough” to worry the politi- 

But how much politicians pay 
attention to United We Stand 
America may be determined by 
how effectively it operates. 

The weekend gathering brought 
together the new state chairmen 
and state directors for the first 

Asked about a possible Perot 
presidential candidacy in 1996, 
Garry Luterek. the Iowa state 
c hairman, said. “1 admire the man 
for many reasons, but that’s not 
why I joined.” 

Others spoke of Mr. Perot as 
providing them with a “tool" to 
help remake the political system, 
but they said perceptions in Wash- 
ington that their strength depended 
on Mr. Perot’s was mistaken. 

Some political analysts say that 
to have real political impact. Unit- 
ed We Stand America either will 
have to endorse candidates for of- 
fice or run its own slates. 

One poll-tasker for the Republi- 
cans said the party's worst night- 
mare would be for Perot-backed 
candidates to siphon off 10 percent 
of the vote in key districts this fall 
which he said would sink many

Mr. Cotten portrayed an idealistic

Hitchcock’s psychological chiller 
“Shadow of a Doubt" ( 1943) and a

weapons expert menaced by spies 
and terrorists in “Journey Into 
Fear” (1942), which be wrote with 
WeiJes, and an artist inspired by a 
ghost in “Portrait of Jennie," for 
which he won the best-actor award 
at the 1949 Venice Rim Festival 

and an embattled industrialist in a 
thriller, “Calculated Risk," in the 
1960s. His co-star in that play was

His performances were repeated-

Brooks Atkinson of The New York

PARIS (BIT) — Gregory C 
Usher, 43, director of the Ritz-Es- 
coffier Ecole de Gastronomic 
Fran^aise at the H6td Ritz, died 
Friday at his home in Paris of an 
AIDS-related disease, 

Mr. Usher, a native of Portland, 
Oregon, had been a resident of Par-

in several notable French restau-

SPY: listening In on a Deep Secret About Subnuirines 

Gwtinoed from Page 1 

ject in the 1960s, recently described 
it to a congressional subcommittee 

in a letter, calling the operation an 
intelligence coup. But he provided 
few details of bow it had been ac- 
complished and of what, if any- 
thing, had been recovered. 

“Halibut was able to locate, ex- 
amine and evaluate the accident 
and to obtain significant intelli- 
gence information concerning the 
submarine, its mission and its 
equipments," he said, actxuding to 
a copy of his written testimony. 

“It was the opinion of many in 
the navy and the Defense Intelli- 
gence Agency that optimum recov- 
ery of intelligence information 

from this accident was achieved,” 
Mr. Craven added. 

He noted, however, that the Cen- 
tral Intelligence Agency had 
“deemed otherwise" and proceed- 
ed with the Glom&i projtxi i o try to 
raise the sub. 

While working for the navy, Mr. 
Craven pioneered both secret and 
public methods to plumb the 
ocean's depths, devising advanced 
gear for deep search, rescue and 
salvage. His successful work on the 
Halibut helped lead to the new 
class of spy submarines, naval ex- 
perts said.' 

Although the Halibut episode 
had been hinted at publicly, mainly 

in a 1991 Chicago Tribune article, 
Mr. Craven’s testimony apparently 
was the Gist time that it had been 
acknowledged by a former govern- 
ment official and that some of its 
accomplishments had been openly 

Mr. Craven’s disclosures are be- 
ing cited by private experts as a 
reason to increase the navy’s sub- 
marine budget. 

“Our capacity to go deep, to go 
anywhere in the water column 
without anybody knowing it, and 
do anything we want there, is the 
greatest security asset of this island 
nation,” said Angelo M. CodevULa,

Wounds, Anger and Despair

Mr. KaBman, 35, was one of the lucky ones who 
SJ***™' * e «»* in Sarajevo's- 
crowtted marketplace Shortly after noon on Satur- 
day when a angle mortar shell killed 68 Bosnians 
andwounded more than 200 others. 

< JSJJ ?nday ’ J he ” d* sanctuary of an 
Wllwpedn: ward at the VS. Army hospital here, 
among 183 people — ranging in age iromlO 
months to 70 years and including the wounded and 
thar families — flown to Germany in the largest ! 
U.S. evacuation from Sarajevo during nearly two 
years of avu war. .-■■■■- 

‘They’re aJ] guilty —the Europeans, NATO, the 
Americans, sard Beam Imamqvic. 40. whose wife 
lay wounded in the hospital. “They’re helping us 
now and we appreciate that But they’re all godly.” - 

For some, their first fuB day out of Sarajevo 
brought happiness; for others, more grief. One 
mother wept with joy after learning from an army 
surgeon that her 77-year-oJd son would probably 
keep his leg, which had been badly shattered in the " 
attack. . 

But another mother, Besha Aisha, learnt that 
suigecais were forced to amputate the left leg of her 
16-year-old daughter. The ghi’s right leg had al- 
ready been severed after a shell hit the family’s , 
house as they were going to bed Wednesday night, 

Whether lying in hospital beds or wandering 
through the makeshift barracks set up for family 
members in the Landstnhl gymnasium, the refu- 
gees had a chance to compare horror stories of life 
m Sarajevo. 

Cazim Kaliman’s account was typical. When Ik 

to him, her body blown to pieces. She had shielded 
him from the ftwforce erf the blast as they browsed 
among the meager 'offerings spread on market 

A few feet away lay a man without a head. 
Another writhed in agony, both hands severed A 
small mushroom cloud of ■bnnlri- and dust baled 
from the shift crater. Screams filled the square. 

“People were lying on the ground everywhere, 
bodies and pieces of bodies,* Mr. Kahman re- 
called. “It was like a butchcrshop.” 

Cab drivers from a taxi stand down the street 
pulled their vehicles into the market. Someone 
Mr. Kalman into a back seat and drove 

him to a hospital where his broken leg was set and 
his shrapnel wounds cleaned. With his lO-year-dd 
daughter, Alma, who had been waiting at homefor 
him to return from the market, he was put on an air 
force C-13Q on Sunday and flown to Germany. 

‘ Whfle expressing thanks “to the UN in Sara)evo 
and the people here who are helping me,” Mr. 
Kaliman shook his head when asked about the 
West’s reluctance to intervene in behalf of the 
■besieged Bosnians. “They’re passive,” he added, 
“Despite the aggression against us, they're simply 
passive. This war makes no sense.” 

Besim Imamovic, a 40-year-old construction 
worker, had stayed home with his two daughters 
Saturday morning while his Mejra, 39, went to the 
market to sell votive candles. She was chatting with 
her sister, Asirna Hasanowic, when the shell deto- 
nated. The blast blew away Mara’s right hand, the 
thumb and forefinger of her left hand, peppered 
her legs and face with shrapnd, and singed the hair 
Grom her head. Her sister was lolled. 

Learning of the catastrophe from a neighbor, 
Mr. Lmmovic wandered through the city for five 
hours, searching for his wife. He moved among 
limbless bodies in the morgue , and waited with 
hundreds of others in a hospital courtyard until 
finding her at 5:30 PJVL rimnly before she was 
taken into surgery. On Monday he sat in the 
Landstnhl gymnasium with his daughters, 1 5-year- 
old Kasims and 5-year-dd Nejra, pondering the 

' T have no words to express what it’s like to be 
here,” he said. T want to go back to Sarajevo 
someday, hut not my children. That is no place for 


Although the evacuation was prompted by Sat- 
urday’s slaughter, many of those who arrived here 
Sunday had been wounded weeks and even months 
earlier,' including at least two Rngnirm Muslim 
soldiers in need of reconstructive surgery. 

U.S. military officials could shed little light cm 
the criteria used by United Nations officials in' 
Bosnia to determine who would be evacuated to 
Germany. T have no earthly idea what the deci- 
sion process was of the UN in Sarajevo,” said 
Colonel David H. Layiand, commander of the 
medical center hoe. 

Also uncertain is where the refugees will go from 
LandstuhL Some of the wounded wiO need months 
of rehabilitation and therapy, white others are 
lflody to be released in a day or two. 

- “For two years, the whole world has failed to 
help Bosnia,* said Abid Gagula,49, crippled by a 
bullet that shattered his right femur in July 1992. 
T understand that America is a kmg way from us. 
I can see that America doesn't understand oar 
mentality. But Europe — Europe has been asleep.”

of French and British fences from

UN Seeks 
To Strike at 
Serb Guns 

By Paul Lewis 

New York Times Senice 


York — Secretary-General Butros 

Butros Ghali has asked NATO for 
authorization to order punitive air 
strikes against Serbian gun posi- 
tions around Sarajevo. 

He already has the authority to 
unilaterally request NATO air 
power to defend peacekeeping 
troops in Bosnia, but he cannot 
order punitive attacks. In a letter 
on Sunday he sought NATO ap- 
proval to order punitive air strikes 
If be deems them necessary. So far 
he has not requested punitive 

In the letter to the North Atlan- 
tic Treaty Organization's secretary- 
general, Manfred W5mer, Mr. Bu- 
tros GhsH asked for authorization 
as quickly as possible from the 
NATO Council in Brussels to em- 
power its Southern Command to 
attack Serbian guns encircling the 
Bosnian capital. 

A senior UN official said that 
toe secretary-general had become 
increasingly frustrated in remit 
weeks by a tendency to blame the 
United Nations for the continuing 
war in Bosnia and the unwilling- 
ness of world powers to take action 
to stop it. 

“We have the political wiE to use 
force against attacks on Sarajevo 
now, but we have to be sure that 
NATO does not refuse us,” toe 
official said. 

Any attacks would be planned 
and ordered by a senior U.S. offi- 
cer, Admiral Jeremy ML Boorda, 
the head of NATO's Southern 
Command, from his headquarters 
in Naples. 

In his letter, the secretary-gener- 
al wrote that mortar attacks last 
week on Sarajevo, at least one of 
which was by Bosnian Serbs, 
“make it necessary to prepare ur- 
gently for the use of air strikes to 
deter further such attacks." 

It was not dear which of the 
recent mortar attacks was launched 
by Serbian forces, or whether air 
strikes on Serbian gun positions 
would come only in response to 
future attacks on Sarajevo. 

The seoetary-geotfal's request 
for authori ty to call air strikes ap- 
pears Hkdy to involve him in a 
struggle with Russia, which in the 
past h as taken tbe view that toe 
Security Council must first approve 
any request for toe use of NATO 
warplanes in Bosnia. 

Madeleine K. Albright, the U.S. 
represen tative to the United Na- 
tions, saidsbewas “pleased” by the 
secretary-generaTs letter to NATO, 
saying that it showed “the United 
Nations and. the alliance can coop- 
erate together.” 

UJS. diplomats say President Bill 
din ton also asked Mrs. Albright to 
press the secretary-general to inten- 
sify toe investigation into toe mor- 
tar attack on Saturday that killed 
68 persons. 

But many officials believe that 
punitive air strikes against toe 
Serbs couldspell toe endof toe UN 
peacekeeping and relief role. 

The United Nations has been 
moving steadily closer to using 
farce since the NATO summit 
last month reaffirmed toe 
>s readiness to use air power 
to reopen Tuzla airport to relief 
flights and to end Serbian efforts at 
blocking the rotation of the guard 
u Srebrenica, a Muslim pocket 
that was declared a safe area.

Military Spending to Shrink a Real 1% 

By Tim Weiner 

New York Times Service 

WASHINGTON — President Bill Clinton’s 
military budget bill for toe fiscal year 1995 puts 
Pentagon spending in a holding pattern, trans- 
ferring money saved by canceling weapons into 
more training and higher pay lor soldiers. 

Military spending would rise $18 billion in 
fiscal 1995 under Mr. Clinton’s plan. Adjusted 
for inflation, that represents a decline of slight- 
ly less than 1 percent from the current budget 
for fiscal 1994. 

The $263.7 billion proposal has something 
for almost everyone to dislike. Some members 
of Congress want to cut more weapons and use 
toe money to pay for social needs. Others fear 
toe advent of a military unable to fight two 
major wars at once, a benchmark for Pentagon 
planners. And a third faction sees the Penta- 
gon’s budget not only as the bulwark of military 
preparedness but as a steady supplier of jobs 
from soldiering to shipbuilding to software 

That is one reason a huge peace dividend 
expected by many at toe end of toe Cold War 
has not materialized. Instead, s mall reductions 
have been achieved incrementally by cutting 
troop strength and dropping plans for a few 
major weapons systems. 

Gone from tbe budget are funds to build 
more F-l 6 fighter planes, long a mainstay c*f the 
U.S. arsenal The administration would also 

cancel two fighter aircraft still on the drawing 
board: toe navy's A/F-X and toe air force’s 
proposed multirole fighter. 

Still in the works are muidbilhon-dollar pro- 
posals to build a new “stealth” fighter for toe 
air force, a new attack helicopter for the army, a 
new attack submarine and a new aircraft carrier 
for the navy and toe new Mils tar satellite sys- 
tem for global co mmuni cations in wartime. All 
have been questioned by congressional critics 
as vestiges of toe Cold War. 

The fiscal 1995 budget rose in large part 
because Congress mandated a 1.6 percent pay 
increase for every member of the still-shrinking 
military. Active duty troop levels would fall by 
85,500 in fiscal 1995 to 1.52 million. The ad- 
ministration would also spend $2.8 billion to 
close military bases as required by Congress 
and S5.7 billion to dean up environmental 
damage at military installations. 

Tbe budget battle in Congress will be waged 
between those who believe that the Pentagon 
can withstand a still-leaner budget, as does 
Representative Ronald V. Dell urns, toe Califor- 
nia Democrat who heads toe House Armed 
Services Committee, and those who believe that 
toe Pentagon may already have sacrificed 
enough, as does Senator Sam Nunn, the Geor- 

S 'a Democrat who heads toe Armed Services 

A spokesman for Mr. Nunn said he would 
withhold comment on Mr. Gintou's budget In 

the past year, the senator has defended toe 
Pentagon against proposed spending cuts. 

The main questions to be answered in toe 
budget debate. Mr. DdJunu said, are: "Do we 
need toe forces to fight and win two wars 
simultaneously on two fronts? Is that more a 
political statement than a military reality?” 
“There can still be a peace dividend.” he said. 
“The question is whether we have the political 
will to do it." 

■ More ’Spending lor Readiness’ 

“The president's budget increases spending 
for readiness.” Defense Secretary William J. 
Perry said Monday, “and ensures that our mili- 
tary has what it needs to keep U.S. forces ready 
to fight." news agencies reported from Wash- 

Mr. Perry said that the budget was toe “bot- 
tom line" for toe national security. 

John S. McCain 3d. Republican of Arizona, a 
member of toe Senate Armed Services Commit- 
tee, said the budget would not buy toe force 
needed to meet toe stated goal of being able to 
fight two nearly simultaneous regional wars. 

He said toat’toe budget “seems to be oblivi- 
ous to the reality that the world is a more and 
more dangerous place.” 

The two-war strategy calls for reductions by 
1999 to a force of 1.4 million troops. 12 aircraft 
carriers. 12 army divisions, three Marine divi- 
sions and 20 air force wings. < Reuters. AP ) 

BUDGET: Clinton Spending Blueprint for 1995 

Continued from Page I 
next year, while collecting 51 .342 
trillion in revenues. 

But the red ink swings upward 
again at decade's end, hitting 
S20U billion in 1999, without tbe 
enactment of Mr. Clinton's No. I 
priority for this year: revamping 
toe health-care system. If that ini- 
tiative is enacted, Mr. Clinton pro 
jects that next year's deficit would 
rink to $165.1 billion, and that the 
1999 shortfall would be $181.1 bfi- 

To finance his health-care plan, 
the president would raise the 24- 
cem-a-pack lax on cigarettes to 99 
cents, bringing in 567 billion over 

the next six years. He also would 
save 5! 18 billion from Medicare by 
cutting reimbursements to hospi- 
tals and doctors and making bene- 
fits more expensive for many of its 
elderly beneficiaries. Medicaid 
payments to toe states would be 
trimmed by $61 billion. 

Mr. Clinton's supporters in Con- 
gress praised his spending blue- 
print but acknowledged that fights 
lay ahead. 

'Undoubtedly some changes 
will be made,” said Martin O. 
Sabo, a Democrat of Minnesota 
who is the House Budget Commit- 
tee chairman. “But I am confident 
that Congress will rise to toe chal- 

lenge, preserve and build upon toe 
budget discipline demanded of us, 
and keep toe economic recovery 

Beyond toe higher tobacco tax, 
Mr. Clinton's package imposes no 
new. general tax increases. It does, 
however, increase government rev- 
enues by $1.52 billion in 1995 by 
increasing more than 30 user fees, 
ranging from higher entrance fees 
at national parks to increased fees 
for meat ana poultry inspections. 

His budget would increase Job 
Corps and four other Labor De- 
partment job-training initiatives 
from S1.6 billion this year to S2.I 
billion in 1995. 

Israeli Aide Backs 
Talbott Posting 


WASHINGTON — .American 
Jewish leaders who have raised 
concerns about toe stance on Israel 
of toe deputy secretary of state/ 
designate. Strobe Talbott, do not 
reflect toe views of toe Israeli gov- 
ernment. a senior Israeli official 
said Monday. 

The official. Deputy Foreign 
Minister Yossi Beilin, speaking at 
toe National Press Gub, also said 
that be personally endorsed tbe ap-

measures, such as UN- 
ecanamic sanctions, that 
could provoke North Korea’s un- 
predictable leadership to start a di- 
sastrous war on the peninsula. 

But with toe deadline approach- 
ing, Washington’s rhetoric erf 1 pa- 

ed by^dk'o^ new U-S^milit^ 
preparations. The Defense Depart- 
ment has notified some reservists to 
be ready for participation in a joint 
rnffitary exercise with South Korea, 
known as Team Spirit, that North 
Korean leaders have depicted as a 
symbol of planning for war. The 
orders to ship out more than a 
thousand U.S. troops and reservists 
to South Korea are being prepared 
for Feb. 22. 

If North Korea fails to change its 

stance by that, UJS, officials said, 
Washington is likely to announce a 
planned deployment of Patriot 
missil e interceptors to South Ko- 
rea. The Pentagon’s aim is to com- 
plete tbe transfer by late March, 
when North Korea’s annual win- 

tertime military training — and its 
readiness for sudden war — is at a 
seasonal peak. 

Several officials said toe CIA di- 
rector, R. James Woolsey, who an- 
nounced two weeks ago that North 
Korea “has vaulted to the top of 
our agenda,” has taken tbe further 
precaution of ordering U.S. intelli- 
gence satellites to capture more fre- 
quent images of North Korean ter- 
ritory. He also has activated for toe 
first time a “national intelligence 
support team," capable of provid- 
ing swift rmlitaiy analysts to U.S. 
forces in South Korea. 

In an unusually tough statement 
last week. North Korea denounced 
some of these moves as “reckless 
new war machinations/* Bui 
Pyongyang has been adding rocket 
launchers and artillery to forces de- 
' within striking distance of 
according to U.S. officials. 

Mr. Woolsey told a Senate com- 
mittee two weeks ago that, al- 
though some North Korean forces 
still have low combat readiness. 
“We are concerned with their mili- 
tary preparations.” 

■ Seoul Predicts Sanctions 
South Korean officials said 
Monday that UN sanctions against 
North 'Korea for refusing nuclear 
inspections appeared to be inevita- 
ble despite a new promise by its 
leader not to develop atomic 
bombs. The Associated Press re- 
ported from Seoul 
Foreign Minister Han Sung Joe 
said UN sanctions against the 
North appeared unavoidable if do 
progress was made in toe nuclear 
issue within two weeks. 

Mr. Hang told a meeting with 
opposition legislators that if no 
breakthrough occurred by Feb. 21, 
then the director-general of toe In- 
ternational Atomic Energy Agency 
was “expected to declare safe- 
guards broken in North Korea.” 

In a verbal message sem last 
week to President Clinton through 
'toe U.5. evangelist Billy Graham, 
President Kim II Sung of North 
Korea again pledged that his coun- 
try would not develop nuclear 
weapons and said be hoped for 
improved lies with Washington. 
Seoul officials said.

Business With Vietnam 

President Bill Clinton has done the right 
thing for the United States in ending ihe 19- 
year-old ban on doing business with Vietnam. 
For Mr. Clinton, it was an act of political 
courage. Had his predecessors been able to 
take a larger view of American interests, they 
would have lifted the embargo years ago. 

Vietnam has been changing dramatically for 
nearly a decade. Most of the differences chat 
drove Hanoi and Washington to war in the 
1960$ and 70s and kepi them at odds through 
the early '80$ have disappeared. In fact, almost 
all have been resolved in America's favor. Viet- 
nam’s troops are out of Cambodia. Its markets 
are open lo the world. And it has turned away 
from what remains of the Communist bloc to 
seek new links with the Association of South 
East Asian Nations, formed during the Viet- 
nam War as an an U -Communist bloc. 

Vietnam is still a one-party state with an 
appalling h uman rights record, but so are 
some of America’s best friends and trading 
partners in Southeast Asia. What has kepi 
Washington at arm's length from the new 
Vietnam is, of course, the legacy of an old war. 

Only a small pan of that legacy was sub- 
stantive. While every single case of a soldier 
lost without remains or information is a fam- 
ily tragedy, the number of Americans still 
unaccounted for is unusually small given the 
scope and duration of American involvement. 

The war's larger legacy has been political and 
psychological. The dead and the missing were 

not, as in past wars, redeemed by an American 
military victory. For many Americans this was 
hi i mi Haring ; for some, even dishonorable. Re- 
fusing to acknowledge Hanoi meant refusing to 
certify Washington's defeat. As the years 
passed, and Vietnam found the trade and aid it 
needed elsewhere, making the embargo point- 
less, only a minority of Americans remained 
irreconcilable. But successive Republican 
presidents indulged this minority, while 
successive Democrats feared provoking them. 

ft is thus remarkable that Mr. Clinton, 
whose own opposition to the war and avoid- 
ance of the draft made him especially vulnera- 
ble to attack on this issue, became the presi- 
dent who finally recognized reality and acted 
in the national interest. 

Hanoi made it easier for him with its vastly 
improved cooperation in recent years on 
searching for remains of missing Americans. 
So did American business leaders clamoring 
for a share of the growing economic action 
before European and Asian countries locked 
any more of it up for themselves. And Mr. 
Clinton has prudently held back on such sups 
as diplomatic recognition and special trade 
and aid agreements, holding them out as in- 
ducements for Further Viet nam ese coopera- 
tion and human rights progress. But give this 
president the full credit he deserves, for at last 
ending America's self-imposed, self -punish- 
ing exile from the new Vietnam. 


Ukraine and Russia 

At fust the election of a new president of 
Crimea committed to restoring that Ukraini- 
an territory's traditional tie to Russia looked 
ominous. Was the vote not bound to feed the 
menacing feud between Ukraine and Russia? 
But something smart occurred to the two of 
them. If Crimea goes into Russia, and espe- 
cially if Russia helps, then Ij a frightened 
Ukraine is likely to back off from its commit- 
ment not logo nuclear, and 2) Russia will find 
itself perhaps with Crimea but with a nuclear 
neighbor as well. That is how to explain the 
steps now being taken in Ukraine to advance, 
in the suspicious parliament as well as in the 
more enlightened leadership, the lagging 
START-1 strategic arms reduction treaty, the 
Jan. 14 Moscow agreement on denuclearizing 
Ukraine signed by Ukraine, Russia and the 
United States, and the good old Nuclear Non- 
proliferation Treaty, which Ukraine has un- 
dertaken to sign as a nonnuclear state. 

Earlier the Ukrainian parliament had re- 
sisted on the theory that Ukraine, to protect 
itself againsL a gathering Russian threat, need- 
ed to keep the nuclear weapons it inherited 
when the Soviet Union vaporized. But the Jan. 
14 agreement seems to be inducing a second 
look. It offers Ukraine, in return for nuclear 
self-denial, a range of economic compensa- 
tions and security guarantees To a wobbly 

new state with an economy in free-fall and 
high security anxieties, these offerings are 
starting to look more valuable than the on-its- 
own existence it would face if it dropped out 
of the Jam 14 accord. 

Crimea is about two-thirds full of ethnic 
Russians who. with the 9 milli on Russians 
elsewhere in eastern Ukraine, are having sec- 
ond thoughts about their vote for Ukrainian 
independence two years ago. Economic calami- 
ty and a surge of ethnic sentiment account for 
the change. But it seems frivolous to change 
position on so great an issue in so short a time. 
Nor, after Yugoslavia, can there be much for- 
eign sympathy for starting to unravel yet an- 
other country’s ethnic crazy quflL For Crimea, 
embellishment of autonomy is a better idea. 

The United States is alarmed at any aggrava- 
tion of tension between the two hugest pons of 
the old Soviet Union, and at any expansion of 
the nuclear dub. Thai is what led Bill din ton 
two weds ago to strengthen American guaran- 
tees lo Ukraine. The core American interest is 
to hold Russia to its word on Ukrainian 
territorial integrity so that Ukraine can better 
be held to its word on nonproliferation. As a 
house itself vulnerable to separatist move- 
ments, moreover, Russia has special cause not 
to indulge separatists next door. 


Better the American Way 

When President Bill Clinton granted a two- 
day visa to Gerry Adams, the wise course for 
an unhappy British government would have 
been to cut its losses and dismiss the matter as 
an internal U.S. affair — as the British initial- 
ly seemed to be doing. Then early last week. 
Prime Minister John M^jor and his foreign 
secretary, Douglas Hurd, inexplicably threw a 
fit. The U.S. ambassador to Britain was sum- 
moned to Downing Street for a harsh lecture, 
and the British public was treated to the 
peculiar television spectacle of a Larry King 
interview on CNN with Mr. Adams, in which 
an actor spoke the Sinn Fein leader' s responses. 

Under British law, Mr. Adams can be seen 
but not beard on television, and instead of 
challenging this bizarre censorship, CNN cra- 
venly chose to comply. A similar ban in the 
Irish Republic was allowed to lapse on Jan. 
19. and Mr. Adams's voice can now be heard 
by many Britons with access to Irish radio and 
television. If Mr. Major is indeed serious 
about his government’s new peace initiative 
on Northern Ireland, he should also be ending 
censorship and encouraging debate. The Brit- 
ish media, however, lack America's safe- 
guards for free speech, making them much 
more vulnerable ro politicians’ whims. In this 
case it seems appropriate to ask just what the 
old lion is afraid of. 

Mr. Adams made the most of British mis- 
takes without expressing a single new thought. 
For millions of Americans, the novelty was in 
seeing a live Irishman express such views. In 
seven television interviews and five press con- 

ferences, bis equivocations about the Irish 
Republican Army’s indiscriminate killings 
fully justified Washington’s barring of Ms 
entry on right previous occasions. 

When he applied this time, however, there 
were new circumstances. Britain and the Irish 
Republic had jointly appealed to Sinn Fein in 
December to renounce violence and take part 
in a new peace initiative, the first break in the 
ice. Meanwhile Mr. Major, bis hand forced by 
leaks, confirmed that Ms government was al- 
ready engaging in secret discussions with Mr. 
Adams — a development that makes hypo- 
critical the British outburst against Mr. 
Adams's visit. Apparently Mr. Major consid- 
ers it appropriate to talk to Mr. Adams in 
secret, but inappropriate for the United States 
to allow him to talk to its people in public. 

Senators Edward Kennedy and Daniel Pat- 
rick Moynihan joined 3$ other members of 
Congress in urging Mr. Clinton to allow Mr. 
Adams to take pan in a New York conference 
attended by other Northern Irish leaders, no- 
tably John Hume, who speaks for the pro- 
vince’s nonviolent nationalist majority. And 
so the president, for principled as well as 
political reasons, let Mr. Adams in. 

Americans are rightly appalled by violence 
in Northern Ireland, carried out by Protestant 
paramilitary groups as well as by IRA gangs, 
some with criminal sidelines. Yet censorship 
and visa blacklists are not the answer. Presi- 
dent Clinton was right to let Americans hear 
and question Gerry Adams. 


Other Comment 

After the Outrage in Sarajevo 

The massacre in Sarajevo on Saturday differs 
only in degree from atrocities that have become 
commonplace in that city and throughout Bos- 
nia. But it must not fall on blunted sensibilities 
or be shrugged off with weary’ appeals to “real- 
ism.’’ It was an outrage: not an act of war but. 
cold-blooded savagery against civilians going 
about their normal business. 

It was also a breach of international law- 
perpetrated under the eyes of United Nations 

forces. If the presumptive guardian of interna- 
tional order can tolerate such flagrant defiance 
of its mandate, its soldiers, international law, 
human rights, world opinion and common hu- 
manity, it might almost as well disband. 

it is nearly too late to save anything of the 
UN's authority and to prevent Bosnia from 
descending to a still deeper circle of helL If 
almost the last chance is not to be missal, the 
UN must now summon up the resolution to 
make its resolutions stick.

More Meaningless Banalities 

P ARIS — In its first edition after 
the massacre of 68 people in the 
Saravejo marketplace by a single 
mortar shell, the French newspaper 
Le Monde identified on its front 
page one of the principal culprits in 
the barbaric war of Bosnia. 

Drawn by Plontu, the editorial 
cartoon pictures a Western politi- 
cian. or perhaps a diplomat, stand- 
ing between a television cameraman 
and a grieving Muslim mother cra- 
dling the broken, lifeless body of a 
child in her arms. The official ad- 
dresses her in elegant French: 
“Permit me. Madame, to say to 
you several banalities that are de- 
void of any meaning but will make 
the television audience believe that 
I am with you with all my heart.” 
The world may never know with 
certitude who fired that murderous 
shell with such precision. But the 
Sarajevo massacre reveals how emp- 
ty and meaningless the declarations 
and negotiations on Bosnia spon- 
sored by Western Europe, the Unit- 
ed States, Russia and other govern- 
ments have become, in the pantheon 
of the many culprits of Bosnia, West- 
ern cynicism now occupies its own 
particular place of dishonor. 

The Sarajevo massacre touched 
off a rush to posture in Washington, 
Paris, London, Brussels and else- 
where. Statesmen suddenly fearful 
of being accused of tolerating atroc- 
ity on a grand scale rushed to show 
in words how concerned, deter- 
mined and effective they have al-

ways been. Blame for the honors of 
Bosnia lay elsewhere, they suggested 
either explicitly or implicitly. 
P rimar y blame does lie with the' 

tile waning tribes of 
ex- Yugoslavia, and first of all with 

the Sobs of Bosnia and of Belgrade. 
Outsiders cannot be blamed for not 
risking their own lives to make these 
tribes slop killing each other. 

But the statesmen of the world 
can be blamed for putting their own 
political objectives before the suf- 
fering of the people of Bosnia and 
then pretending otherwise. They can 
be blamed for wringing advantage 
from the blood-soaked garments of 
the Sarajevo marketplace by placat- 
ing public opinion with bromides 
and camouflage instead of provid- 
ing dear explanation. 

instead the world’s major govern- 
ments argue over air strikes that they 
are not prepared to laundi and politi- 
cal consensus that they cannot estab- 
lish. Hidden disagreements he at the 
centerof the ajnfusedfhmycf diplo- 
macy and muted Western saber-rat- 
tling that preceded the Sarajevo shefl- 
ingaod has resumed in its wake. 

The central reality for Western 
Europe and Russia is that Serbia has 
won the war in Bosnia and is ready 
to cash in its chips. Europeans, led 
by France, feel that the time has 
come to accept this result and save 

the Muslims from total annihiiarioit 
by making them surrender — now 
— at the conference table. The 
French truly believe that this is tire 
most pragmatic and moral coarse 
available, provided that the United 
States will join Europe in commit- 
; troops to police the surrender, 
tragedy in the Sarajevo mar- 
ketplace does not change the French 
calculation. Instead, it confirms the 
French view that the conflict grows 
more bloody and more explosive as 
it stretches on into its third 
That is what puts Paris and 
cow, which are at ease with a Serbi- 
an victory, at odds with Washing- 
ton, which is not. (The French argue 
persuasively that they have won 
German ChanceDor Helmut Kohl 
and British Prime Minister John 
ijor over to their view.) 

Clinton administration does 
not see three or four months sure of 
war as the worst possible outcome in 
Bosnia. The Muslims have secured 
arms despite the United Nations 
embargo against ex-Yugoslavia and 
may now be able to “create facts” 
on the ground by retaking territory. 
That would make negotiations more 
productive in late spring or early 
summer, in Washington's view. 

That view happens to fit two key 
realities on the U.S. side. One is that 
President Bin Qmtcm is not pre- 
pared to pay the political cost in the 
Muslim worid or in domestic opinion 
of openly forcing tire Bosnian Mus- 
lims to surrender. Secondly, like the

prepared to commit the force needed 
to reverse the Serbian conquest tint

Some Europeans suspect Wash- 
ington has embarked in recent weeks 
cm a coven program of supplying 
small arms to Bosnia. Such a step, S 
it has been taken, would fit a UJS. 
strategy of trying to boy time and 
new ground for toe Muslims without 
running the risks involved in chang- 
ing the strategic remit of the war. 

U-R-European relations are be- 
ing poisoned by the Bosnian w ar, as 

jy held suspicions in Paris over U.S. 
gannmn mg shows. The inability of 
Weston governments to explain 
t hpr ca tenatio ns and conflicts with 
frankness produces a confusion that 
saps public confidence; slowly but 
surety.. More meaningless banalities 
uttered for television cameras can 
only worsen what has already be- 
come a major tragedy.

NATO Has the Force, but Will Clinton Give the Leadership? 

N EW YORK — In one bloody moment the 
hypocritical facade of Bfll Qin ton's emp- 
ty policy on Bosnia crumbled. The monar shell 
that lolled 68 people as they shopped in Saraje- 
vo's market oa Saturday ended the pretense 
that America had a meaningful policy. 

President Clinton inherited a Bosnian hor- 
ror from European appeasers and President 
George Bush. After a weak show of wanting 
to act, he essentially withdrew from the pro- 
blem, hoping that Americans would forget iu 
From the lowest echelon of the Slate De- 
partment to near the highest, no one believed 
in the nonpolicy. How iar the rot of cynicism 
had gone was shown in a report given at the 
National War College last month by Richard 
Johnson, a department officer who formerly 
headed its Yugoslav desk. He titled the paper 
“The Pinstripe Approach to Genocide.

with the American people on the nature of the 
moral and security’ challenges that America 
faces in the Balkans, Mr. Johnson said. He said 
officials lad deliberately played down evi- 
dence that Serbian “ethnic demising 7 ' of Mos-

had not the courage to do iL Or, more precise- 
ly, Mr. Qin ton did not He gave the orders. 

The political calculation in Washington. 
London and Paris was that the victims of 
aggression would eventually accept the divi- 
sion of their country. But (he army of Bosnia 
fought on against the odds, and grew stronger. 
France asked Washington to join inpressmg 
the Bosnian government to give up. That was 
one thing the admhristration would not do. 

The necessary steps are plain. 

• The growing strength of the Bosnian army 
means that no ground troops are needed from 
outside. What Ts needed is what Mr. Qin ton 

and then abandoned — NATO air 
ainst the aggressors, and an end to the

• The slaughter in the Sarajevo market un- 
derlines what should be the first air targets: the

• Planes should be used to interdict the 
main-force Serbian and Croatian imizs now 
moving into Bosnia. That means taking oat the 
Dana River bridges that link Serbia and Bos- 
nia, and attacking Croatian entry routes. 

• The United States has warned President

Heading Off a U.S.-Japanese Collision 

W ASHINGTON — U.S. trade 
policy toward Japan, if it can 
be called a policy, is going nowhere. 
The highly touted “framework" for 
an agreement, initialed last year by 
President Bill Clinton and Prime 
Minister Morihiro Hosokawa, is in 
trouble, according to both parties. 

Like parties to a labor agreement, 
international negotiators often talk in 
grim terms prior to making a deal 
But to all appearances a summit next 
Friday between Mr. Clinton and Mr. 
Hosokawa is in jeopardy. 

Prospects for heading off a collision 
“look pretty dark right now,” said an 
administration official. If the “frame- 
work” talks blow up. the administra- 
tion threatens to consider “options,” 
which means a retrogression to the 
unilateral sanctions and punishments 
of the Reagan-Bush years. 

Mr. Hosokawa, after announcing a 
$55 billion tax cut {part of a proposed 
$125 billion domestic stimulus pack- 
age urged cm him by the Americans), 
was forced to withdraw it because of 
opposition within his fragile political 
coalition. That adds another on- 
known dimension to the outlook. 

Formerly sold on the idea that Mr. 
Hosokawa was genuinely interested 
in and commuted to opening up the

Japanese market so as 10 improve

ly wonder whether they had tnisas- 
sessed Mr. Hosokawa, oral least his

have been doing.’ 

suggested Glen S. Fukushuna. a for- 
mer deputy trade representative, is 
that he has not yet formulated a “dear, 
coherent and consistent” trade policy 
toward Japan. Mr. Fukushima points 
out that tbae is no central policy- 
making apparatus on Japan wi thin the 
Clinton arimints liaticin. 

Indeed, pieces of the action are 
read among the White House, the 
Tice of the Trade Representative, 


and the State, Treasury, Commerce, 
and Agriculture departments. De- 
pending on their ties to U.S. compa- 
nies, some Clinton aides are mare 
hawkish than others. 

It is time not only to get the institu- 
tional confusion sealco, but to revise 
American thinking about Japan. U.S. 
policy still suffers from the delusion 
lhai the Japanese are invincible. That 
theme, brilliantly marketed by Mi- 
chad Crichton’s pretentions novel 
“Rising Sun," is answered in a solid 
new book by Bill Etnmott, editor of 
The Economist, “Japanophobia.’' 

Other experts, such as Paula Stem, 
agree that the Clinton administra- 
tion team has become obsessive on 
Japan, which now should be consid- 
ered less of an economic threat. She 
advocates that the administration 
adopt a “get smart” policy that fo- 
cuses on America’s longer-term rela- 
tionship with Japan, not simply (he 
narrow, “get tough" approach. 

C. Fred Bergs ten, director of the 
Institute for International Econom- 
ics, makes the same point in different 
language: Concentrate now mi the

At Best, a Very Qualified Optimism 

P ARIS — The announcement 
of Israeli -Palestinian “peace" 
was meant to be the political set 
piece of the recent World Econom- 
ic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Ii 
failed to come off. 

1 put the word “peace” in quota- 
tion marks because insofar as the 
two sides can. at this point, deliver 
peace, they already have done so 
by entering into negotiations and 
accepting a Norwegian-brokered 
agreement os Palestinian self-rule 
in Gaza and Jericho. Toe obstacles 
lie in the details. 

Those dements of (he Palestine 
Liberation Organization under 
Yasser Arafat's control have bdd 
their fire since the declaration of 
principles signed in Washington on 
Sept. 13. Those Palestinian groups 
opposed to compromise with Israel 
have not done so. nor has the Islam- 
ic fundamentalist group Hamas. 

But partial peace is better than 
no peace, and Foreign Minister Shi- 
mon Peres of Israel and Mr. Arafat 
have been negotiating over the de- 
tails, which unfortunately are very 
weighty. They concern security for 
both Palestinians and Israeli' set- 
tlers. the latter essential to Israel's 
withdrawal from Gaza and Jericho. 
Fundamentally, however, they are 
d ealing with the question of sover- 
eignty. -Are the Palestinians ready 
to be sovereign in their territories? 

Die two men resumed negotia- 
tions in Norway, where they attend- 
ed the funeral of Johan Jorgen 
Holst, the foreign minister who was 
one of several Scandinavians re- 
sponsible for bringing Israel and 
the Palestinians together for secret 
negotiations last year. Talks contin- 
ued at Davos, where both men had 
been invited in the hope that ihe 
final problems could be solved and 
Israeli- Palestinian accord could be 
announced triumphantly to the great 
and the good, the powerful and rich, 
assembled there together with a siz- 
able part of the world's press. 

By William Pfaff 

Mr. Peres and Mr. Arafat, giving 
the appearance of being under con- 
siderable tension, instead told a dis- 
appointed audience only that there 
would be agreement cm the security 
issues “very soon." 

What happened was that the gov- 
ernment in Jerusalem had at the 
last minute objected to certain of 
the security provisions worked out 
between the two. Mr. Peres, h is 
said, is more optimistic about the 
future outlook for Palestine-JsraeE 
cooperation than are Prime Minis- 
ter Yi tzhak Rabin and sane other 
members of his government. Mr. 
Rabin was quoted last week as say- 
ing that he has more trust in Prcs- 
dem Hafez Assad of Syria than in 
Mr. Arafat since in the past the 
Syrian chief of state has kept his 
agreements, while no one knows if 
Mr. Arafat will be able to keep his. 

Optimism and pessimism are at 
ihe heart of this affair, since both 
sides have to make an act of trust in 
the other, in circumstances where 
real reason exists to doubt that the 
other can deliver what it promises. 

Yasser Ararat's position nas great- 
ly weakened in recent years, ami bis 
willingness in September to sign a 
joint declaration of principles on 
Pales tinian autonomy and Israeli 
withdrawal from Gaza and Jericho 
automatically drove out of his FLO 
all those who considered tins too 
grave a Palestinian compromise. 

A prudent Israeli must certainly 
ask what Mr. Arafat realty can deliv- 
er. A prudent answer might be that 
he can deliver more if the withdraw- 
al does take place in April, as sched- 
uled, on reasonably generous terms, 
with the Palestinians enjoying not 
only tim symbols bat the reality of 
sovereignty. But not aH agree: 

The Palestinians (and the Syri- 
ans. since the status erf (he Golan 
Heights is next on the Arab- Israeli 

agenda) similarly believe that they 
could have more confidence in an 
agreement with Israel if a Likud 
government were signing for Israel, 
rather than the fragile Labor gov- 
ernment of Mr. Sh amir . (Israelis 
with whom I have spoken are none- 
theless convinced that a Likud gov- 
ernment would respect any agree- 
ment made by Mr. Shamir.) 

However, weakened men are 
making this agreement. Mr. Arafat 
does so because Palestinian unity is 
slipping away and he understands 
that what now has beat offered the 
Palestinians is more than they are 
likely to have under any other real- 
istically imaginable circumstances. 

Mr. Shantir and Mr. Peres are 
negotiating because the hard, com- 
bative ana implicitly expansionist 
policy of successive Likud govern- 
ments has led only to perpetuated 
violence and insecurity; arm the Is- 
raeli people, in the last na tional 
election, indicated that they have 
had enough of that and want to try 
for a negotiated peace. 

On neither side, then, does opti- 
mism prevail, only a rather desper- 
ate recognition (hat only worse al- 
ternatives exist to what now is 
going on.

Paula Stan would use the present . 
window of opportunity to have the

United States to focus on new chal-

My concern is whether Mr: Ho-

chan and then carry through the in- 
ternal reforms needed in Japan. 

On ihe American side, the Clinton

doggedly pursues the sector-roecxfic 
orientation of the “framewarir talks. 
It fears a backlash from Japan-bash-

t True, the Stodqnan forecast was 
greeted with skepticism by some of the 
economists, politicians and business 
leaders at the conference sponsored by 
the Committee for a Responsible Feder- 
al Budget, a private group. To the lead- 
ers of that group — whose purpose is 
prodding Congress and the admmistra- 
tion to take further steps to cot federal 
spending and reduce futere deficits — it 

was not a particularly welcome 

As Carol Cox Wait the director of the

Mr. Stockman had floated.

Stockman's trademark He is grayer now 
than he was as a 34-year-old budget 
whiz in 1981, hut he still has a teenager’s 
zest for intellectual stunts that outrage 
his elders. Back then, the budget direc- 
tor's cleverness angered congresskmal 
committee chairmen twice iris age. Even 
President Ronald Reagan was briefly 
upset when Mr. Stockman confessed to 
Toe Washington Post that he knew his 
budget-and-tax plan contained many a 
deficit-swelling “Trojan horse.” 

But his experience with the Black- 
stone Group, a high-powered invest- 
ment outfit, has only enhanced Mr. 
Stockman's exuberant self-confidence. 

From his Wall Street perch, Mr. Stock-

Inflation is hardly awccryTu-S. firms 
have added so much pixxfaxxive capacity

there is little upward pressure on wages. 

Further, you can expect go v ernment 
policy worldwide to choke off inflation. 
The great central banks in the United 
States, Germany and Japan serve “geri- 
atric-societies.'’ As populations age; po- 
litical pressure to create new jobs is 
replaced by pressure to protect ravings, 
The result: “a mass constituency for 
fi ghtwig inflation.” 

Budget deficits are soon to join yester- 
day’s worries. Barring war or domestic 
disaster, the share of the gross, domestic 
product allocated to government spend- 
ing for cash retiremait benefits should

deficit, which the Congressional Budget 
Office says was 4 percent of gross domes- 
tic product last year, “trill settle into a 
comfortable 1 to 2 percent” of GDP. 

Health care is a concern, Mr. Stock- 
man concedes, but not bsgenough to 
blow Rosy Scenario away. The essence 
of the problem is that tag employers 
have extracted large price concessions 
from the health care providers, but cost- 
shifting has priced small firms and indi- 
viduals oot.of the health care, market. 

Mr. Clinton's health reform would 
deal with that by organizing the rest of 
America into buying pools. The plan 
wfll work, especially if it is changed (as 
Treasury Secretary Lloyd Bentsen at

Heroes of Sarajevo 

Regarding " And So It Continues in 
Sarajevo, Death by Death ” (Opinion, 
Feb. 3) by Zlatko Dizdarevic: 

Even potting aside the persistent 
good work of Mr. Dizdarevic and his 
colleagues on the staff of Oslobodjenje, 
the Sarajevo daily, his article stands as 
one of the finest examples of journal- 

ism ever packed into 600 words. His 
assurance that he does not hate us, the 
people outside Sarajevo who read and 
then forget, the pofitirians who speak 
but do not act, gives us no comfort It 
was not meant to, nor should it He is

Dizdarevic, his Oslobodjenje col-

not soon be forgotten. 



ITie Bosnia Arms Embargo 

Regarding the editorial “ Encourage the 
Bosnians!" (Opinion, Jan. 31): 

Not only should the Bosnian Muslims 
be encouraged to defend themselves, 
they should not remain gravely and un- 
fairly disadvantaged in doing so. Lift the 
aims embargo, and all the futile argu- 
ments about air strikes and ground 
troops can cease: So can the false daims 
to morality. The Bosnians will defend 
ihwT Mdv M a gains t slaughter and “eth- 
nic deansing without the intervention 
of Europe or the United States. 


Portimao, Portugal. 
lifting the arms embargo wfll do 
nothing to solve the three-way political 
dispute in Bosnia and will only in t e nsif y 

and prolong the bloodshed. Were the 
Bosnian Muslims to receive weapons 
from their foreign supporters (in addi- 
tion to the clandestine arms shipments 
they already receive), the Croats and 
Serbs would certainly turn to their for- 
eign friends for more arms. Experience 
shows that pouring aims into a civil war 
ensures its continuation. From Afghani- 
stan to Angola, terrible wars have been 
sustained by the “good** intentions of 
foreign arms suppliers. 



Voices for Restraint 

Regarding the Other Comment item 
"Small Ways to Save Ourselves" (Opin- 
ion. Feb. 2) from the Las Angeles Times: 

Apart from the ethical problems in- 
volved in elderly ladies gleefully profit- 
ing from deep-frozen embryos, there is 
the global aspect to consider. If there is 
one thing this dear planet is not short of, 
it is members of the human race.

Two seemingly opposing doomsaying 
views occur frequently in your pages: 
The world population continues to 

§ row, while the population of some in- 
ustrialized countries is graying. The 
fact is, to solve overpopulation we wfll 
have to accept graying, and that will 
mean accepting temporarily reduced liv- 
ing standards. But there is little alterna- 
tive — except our self-destruction on the 
sword of overpopulation.

North’s Giveaway 

What a commentary on contempo- 
rary U.S. politics and mores that Oliver 
North, formerly of the U.S. Marine 

Corps, can be a serious contender for a 
US. Senate seat. He reportedly feds 
that “most people don’t give a rat’s pa- 
tootie” about the Iran-contra affair 
(IHT, Jan. 29). As senator, wfll he pro- 
pose legislation permitting indicted per- 
sons to decide on their own whether 
their fdony is serious enough to be pros- 
ecuted? Will it matter to him if he is lied 
to at Senate bearings? 

If nothing else, that “rat’s patoolie” 
gives him away. Any real marine knows 
mat is not the right" expression.

How the War Turned Out 

Jonathan Yardley (Books, Jan. 29) re- 
marks that “we know, now, bow the 
[Cold] War turned out — nobody 
won ..." Mr. Yardley presumably in- 
tends the comment as an ironic witti- 
cism. Such irony, which pervades the 
substance of his review, should not be 
given room. Would Mr. Yardley affect 
an equally detached irony at the news 
that the Cold War had been lost?

watch it become what Mr. de Rosnay 
calls "unimedia." 

Within the first quarter-hour, we have 
desktop publishing; in the second quar-

toward the telephone at 9:00, we have

between the phone and the book at the

T HE INFORMATION revolution is 
burling us into unknown economic 
and social challenges. Those who can 
afford to tap into the fast-expanding 
hodgepodge of communications services 
already enjoy the many benefits. Those 
who cannot are being left behind. 

The Clinton administration has 
made access to and affordability of the 
nation's emerging information super- 
highway a major priority. Vice Presi- 
dent A1 Gore has outlined the need for 
“universal service." 

Universal service is desirable, much 
like rural electrification and telephone 
service. But how is it to be financed? 

Should government's role be one of 
high-tech cot in directing universal ser- 
vice? Should it be a federal investor, as 
in the electrification of rural America? 
Should it guarantee the private sector a 
rate of return in exchange for making 
access affordable? Or should the private 
sector provide universal service pro 
bono? These questions are emerging as 
the Climen administration readies a leg- 
islative package on telecommunications.

Four hundred of the 
world’s most prominent families 
call Fisher Island home. 

There arc a few places in die 
world where people can truly 
relax and enjoy a remarkable 

One of them is Fisher 

It is a 216-acre sanctuary 
of lovely homes, beaches 
and recreational pleasures, 
providing the finest ameni- 
ties in a serene, pampered 

Its seaside residences are 
luxurious and as large as 
9,000 square feet, with ter- 
races of an additional 5,000 
square feet overlooking the 
Gulf Stream, Biscayne Bay 
and the skylines of Miami 
and Miami Beach. 

Created by William K. 
Vanderbilt II, great grandson 
of American industrialist 
Commodore Vanderbilt, 
Fisher Island has been a 
favorite of the world’s impor- 
tant people for 70 years. 

The family's spectacular 
winter estate included a 
dramatic home by the ocean 
filled with antiques from one 
of Napoleon's palaces. On

and guest villas amid 
resplendent gardens and 
fountains. The mansion and 
surrounding structures have 
been restored to their former 
grandeur as The Fisher

In recent years, impressive 
social and recreational facili- 
ties have been added. There 
is a P.B. Dye championship 
golf course; an international 
spa lauded by Totcn & 
Country as one of the finest 
of the 1990s; a racquet club 
with day, grass and hard 
courts: two deepwater mari- 
nas which host the largest 
yachts in the world: a mile of

of excellent restaurants. 

There arc manicured parks 
for afternoon strolls; an island

dockmasrer’s office; and. per- 
haps most important of all, an 
armosphere of securin' that 
allows residents co lead a life 
of privacy and pleasure. 

Little wonder, then, that

Ins and Outs of the Label Game 

j-k^ II ill 1 1 H Bazar, with a tar 

International Herald Tribune 

AR1S — It was an idea 
of the extravagant 1980s: 
a secondary hoe bearing 
m a designer logo in order 
to offer the label at a lower price to 

an cver-widex audience. 

But now the concept has 
changed. A second designer line 
becom es a first prionty. ft is 
meant to appeal to a different au- 
dience. to have a separate image, 
to express the varied range of a 
creative spirit and a different facet 
of the designer's personality. Don- 
na Karan's sporty DKNY range is 
a prime example of a fashion line 
that never plays second fiddle. 

Christian Lacroix, a designer 
associated with the luxe of high 
fashion, launches for next season 
his Bazar collection, shown last 
week on young girls with braids 
in their hair, boots on fear feel 
and an attitude expressing street 
rather than salon. 

Muting plaid peasant skirts, 
frock coats, ethnic-patterned 
sweaters and lacy tops that are 

part of his pantheon, Lacroix gave 

the collection a gust of country an. 
Shades of earth brown or dark 
beny red were used for the short 
jackets and wide, cuffed pants, the 
duffel coats, suede jackets and 
shearling vests. Nylon coats or 
quilted jackets with Provencal mo- 
tifs and simple smocks proved that 
a designer who bad seemed m 
thrall to opulent fabrics and elabo- 
rate decoration can also work on 
simpler lines. 

“The idea is to avoid the idea 
of a secondary tine and to look 
for a different clientele with a 
different way of dressing so that 
this collection becomes analo- 
gous to the main tine," says Rob- 
ert Bensoussan-Torres. Lacroix s 
president, charged with expand- 
ing the six-year-old company and 
turning it to profit. 

His target is 100 million francs 
(about S17 million) sales for Bazar 
in Europe for its first year, with a 
later expansion into the Asian and 
American markets. The line is 
made by Kenzo, another house m 

Bazar, with a target of 400 
points of sale in Europe, wffl 
price jackets from 2^00 fr ancs, 
pants from 800 francs and starts 
from 700 francs when they go on 

sale for the fall season. 

Sonia Rykiel's Inscriptions line 
is already established —with her 
daughter Nathalie as its oeauve 
director and driving force.

tunics with apptiqued patches. 

Although hemlines were mostly 

long or traded for pants. Inscrip- 
tions had a youthful jaunty fed, 
enhanced by hip accessories like 
floppy hats and silver boots. 

“The roots are part of Rykiel 
but it's got a different identity and 
is targeted for a different customer 
with more casual clothes and more 
variations in fabrics, says Ry- 
kiel's Simon Burstem. The line, 
selling at 30 to 40 percent bdow 
the designer collection, accounts 
for 10 percent of the business. 
-Unlike a lot of companies, we do 
not want a secondary line dupli- 
cating what we do already, says 
Burstem. “That would erode the 

base by eating into our core bush 

ness. It needs its separate identi-

The idea or licensing a deagirer 
name across the globe went hnet- 
N out of fashion during the 1 Salts 
expansion, although companies 

soon found —Gucci is the prime 
example — thai cleaning up li- 
censes meant reducing royalties. 
Bensoussan-Torres says that 
there are now “no more truths. 

“Each house makes its own de- 
cisions — some for licensing, oth- 
ers for their own production, he 
says. “But the most important 
thing is to use creativity to pro- 
duce salable products.”

is to build up steadily alciyal liea-

By Andrew Pollack 

New York Tuna Service 
TOKYO — Japanese auto executives do 
not have to be. reminded about Chiysler 
Corp.’s new Neon, the small car with the low 
price that has been dubbed a “Japanese -car 
Jailer.” - 

. It is but the latest threat to Japan's auto 
manufacturers, which these days find them- 
selves in the unaccustomed role of being on 
the retreat in a growing American market 
But the Neon has already been recalled 
twice because of defects, a portent perhaps 

EU car sales rise bat the picture is stS grim, 
especially' in Germany and Italy. Page XL 

that any notion of knocking mu the Japanese 
may be fanciful. 

“We haven’t been killed yet," said Nobu- 
hiko Kawamoto, the president of Honda Mo- 
tor Co., when asked about the Neon. 

Indeed, Japanese automaker s are talcing 
stqps to regam the share of the U.S. market 
they lost over the Last two years, or at least to 
stop slipping further. 

They are planning new models and trying 
to plug holes in then product fines in mini- 
vans and sport utility vehicles. They also are 
slashing costs at home and shifting produc- 
tion to the United States in an effort to hold 
down prices in the face of a rising yen. 

Doubt that the Japanese can come back is 
dispelled by looking at Nissan Motor Co. 
After losing ground m the American market 
for a decade, Nissan’s sales in the United 
States shot up 17 percent last year cm the 
baas of its hot-selling, made-in- America Al- 
bum sedan. Its marten share rose to 49 per- 
cent from 4.5 percent, making ft the only 
Japanese company Out gamed share. 
“Based on u>e Nissan experience, Detroit 

win very quickly be faced yet again with a 
significant challenge from Japan," said Ste- 
phen Usher of Klein wort Benson Securities 
in Tokyo. 

But other analysts were more pessimistic, 
saying the Japanese companies would have 
difficulty. Because of the high exchange value 
of the yen, analysts estimated a Japanese car 
was $1,500 to 53,000 more expensive than an 
equivalent American model 

Some Japanese executives disclaim much 
interest in market share and say they would 
be content to see their sales rise; even if not as 
fast as the overall market. 

Toyota says it is looking to sell the same 
number of vehicles in the United States this 
year as in 1993, meaning that its share would 
slip again — from a current 7.4 percent if the 
overall market grows robustly as expected. 

Japanese companies may not want to por- 
tray themsdtves as threats at a time auto trade 
negotiations are at a crucial juncture. 

But statements of such limited vistas also 
suggest that the Japanese, with their profits 
mkmg a shellacking from the slump at home 
and in Europe, cannot afford to cut prices in 
the United States to gain market share. Some 
think they might have to keep raising prices. 

While the yen’s rise was perhaps the main 
reason that Japan’s overall sure of the 
American car and light-truck markets slipped 
for two years — to 23.1 percent in 1993 from 
2S.7 percent in 1991 — there are two other 

One is the improvement in the quality, 
design and cost competitiveness of the cars 
nude by General Motors Corp., Ford Motor 
Co. and Chrysler. 

The other is that the Japanese companies 
missed out on the boom in pickup trucks, 
mini vans and sport-utiHty vehicles, which

In any case, you would have loTie crazy to

exports the same low tariffs as America's

Of Spectrum 

Compiled by Our Staff From Dispatches 
NEW YORK — John Sculley 
resigned Monday as chairman and 
chid executive of Spectrum Infor- 
mation Technologies Inc., the em- 
battled wireless data company he 
joined in October after nearly a 
decade as the top executive at Ap- 
ple Computer Inc. 

Observers had raised questions 
when he joined the little-known 
company, and uncertainties grew, 
including questions about execu- 
tives’ stock dealings, a government 
investigation and finally, on Mon- 
day, news that the company had 
been overstating its profits. 

Stock in the company, which de- 
veloped technology to send data 
through cellular telephones, tumb- 
led S3J13 per share in over-the- 
counter trading Monday, to $225. 

Mr. Sculley. 54, said that recent 
events made' it clear that he was 
misled about the company before 
he was hired. He said he had filed a 
suit in U.S. District Court in New 
York against Spectrum's president, 
Peter Casern connected “to the 
rircumstances under which I was 
induced to join Spectrum, to my 
obvious detrimenu"

NEW YORK — The dollar was 
slighliy lower in thin trading Mon- 
day afternoon, giving back some of 
the big gain it made Friday after 
the Federal Reserve Board moved 
. to raise short-term interest rates. 

As trading ended, the dollar was 
quoted at 1.7587 Deutsche marks, 
off from its two-and-a-half-year 

1 10 yen were “totally unconnected 
with any Treasury view or position 
we are working on." Mr. Bergsten 

3808 . 

has previously been seen as an unof- 
ficial spokesman about economic 
matters for President Bill Clinton. 

Although the trader said the 
market was skeptical of the Trea- 
sury’s denial that it “was or is try- 
ing' to manipulate the doliar/yen 
rate,” he said there seemed to be “a 
growing trend'* of distancing itself 
from Mr. Bergsten's remarks. 

Against other currencies, the 
dollar was down to 1.4685 Swiss 
francs from 1.4725 francs but rose 
to 5.9620 French francs from 

Foreign Exchange 

high of 1.7610 DM on Friday, and 
at 108.60 ven, compared with 
109-25 yen before the weekend. 

Amy Smith, senior foreign-ex- 
change analyst for the IDEA con- 
sultancy in New York, said the dol- 
lar was “taking a rest from its sharp 
rise" but that the trend for tire 
currency was still upward. She said 
she expected it to “test and breach" 
1.77 DM early this week.

discussing a possible alliance, an AfitaEa spokesman add Monday. 

But the spokesman would not confirm Italian newspaper reports that 
the airlines have agreed on sharing trans-Atlantic routes and integrating

Such an agreement would provide Alitalia passengers with easy Iniks to 
U.S. cities beyond the main cities where it already flies and would give

demand. He added, however, that 
he did not see the manufacturing 
industry “ever coming back” as the 
mass employer it once was. 

He would not say whether he 
thought France, which has the 

highest real interest rates in Eu- 
rope. should move to ease mone- 
tary policy. Paris, he said, had de- 
rided to keep to its franc fan policy 
“and that’s their decision.” 

Mr. Clarke is to begin a two-day 
visit to Paris on Tuesday, during 

which be is to meet with Prime Min- 
ister Edouard Balladur and Finance 
Minister Edmond Alptondeiy. . . 

He praised the Bundesbank, 
which has maintained a much-criti- 
cized hard line on reducing interest 
rates too rapidly. 

Mr. Clarke, who has been sug- 
gested in London as a possible suc- 
cessor to Prime Munster John Mb- 
jor, said he remained “agnostic” 
about whether the Bank of Engl a nd 
should be given greater indepen- 
dence from the Treasury.

Lag as El Car Sales 
Rise 7% for Month 


BRUSSELS — Car sales rose in 
Europe in January but demand re- 
loaned weak and Germany and 
Italy, Europe’s largest markets, are 
beading for trouble, analysts said. 

January new-car registrations in 
the J2 countries of the European 
percem ’ 

from 898,940 a year earlier, the 
Europ ean Automobile Manufac- 
turers Association said. But last 
yearns figure had been down 28 
percent from 1992 because buyers 
nad rushed to buy cars in Deam- 
ber before taxes increased and re- 
bates ran out. 

Car sales in January in Western 
Europe, which includes the 12 EU 
countries, Austria, Switzerland and 
the Scandinavian countries, rose 
Jjjg"*-'* l - 03 “inwn. from 

West European car sales, down 
15 percent fa - all of last year, still 

are predicted to be flat or only 2 or 

3 percent higher this year, despite 
the January increase. 

• “That’s a relatively encouraging 
□umber only because it’s positive,” 
said Francois Colli, an analyst at 
Paribas Capital Markets. “Germa- 
ny is a bit disappointing, however.” 
He predicted Gentian sales would 
be flat this year. 

An official whh the European 
Automobile Manufacturers Asso- 
ciation, commenting on the 63 per- 
cent West European increase, said, 
“It’s the first indication that, hope- 
fully, the recession Is leveling out.” 
However, he also said the improve- 
ment was not dramatic because it 
reflected an increase over a particu- 
larly bad January 1993. 

German sales in January rose Z6. 

__ had rushed to buy cars in 
December before taxes increased 
and rebates ran out. 

“The domestic market will con- 
tinue to be weak and orders still are 
showing no sign of improvement" 

said Jurgen Mdzner, an analyst at 
Deutsche Bank, who predicted 
German sales would fall 4 percent 
this year.- “The only encouraging 
□umbers are that German car ex- 
port demand is growing.” * 

The export market for German 
cars, including Volkswagen, Mer- 
cedes-Benz ana BMW models, is 

racking up thanks to deman d in the 
United States and signs of a revival 
for top-of-the-Hne new models in 
Japan, analysts said. 

Car sales in Italy fell 10 percent 
in January, following a 20 percent 
drop in ail of I993 and a 14 percent 
drop in January 1993. Faffing fam- 
ily income, worries about rising 
taxes and cantion ahead of next 
month's national elections are 
stunting .demand, said Anfia, the 
Italian car association. 

British monthly sales now sur- 
pass Italy’s, thanks to an 1 1.6 per- 
cent rise in 1993 and a 20 A percent 
rise thi^i January. 

“The U-K- has a good, stable 
recovery, and that’s comfor ting in 
the long-term for other countries,” 
Mr. Colli said. “But if we’ve 
reached bottom, it might take up to 
a year far Sales to pick up througb- 
out Europe.

Sellers Emerge in Europe 

By Erik Ipsen 

International Herald Tribune 

LONDON — European stock 
markets reacted sharply Monday 
to Friday’s quarter-point rise in 
U.S. interest rates, but analysts 
generally said this did not signal 
a turn to a bear market. 

. “A quarter of a percentage 
point should not move markets, 
but it was very important from a 
psychological point of view,” 
Matthew Merritt, a stock market 
strategist at NatWest Markets in 
London, said. 

In Loudon, the Financial 
Times-Stock Exchange index of 
100 shares fell 99 points in early 
trading before regaining some 
confidence after Wall Street 
showed early strength. It stQl 
' dosed with a loss of 5630 points, 
or 1.60 percent. 

Elsewhere, the DAX index in 
Frankfurt fell 2.75 percent, the 
CAC-40 index in Paris was off 
1.81 percent, and most other ma- 
jor European markets fell 1 per- 
cent to 3 percent The European 
component Of the Intcrnaty i p aT 
Herald Tribune World Stock In- 
dex fefl L83 percent. 

But many analysts viewed the 
sell-off as minor and perhaps 
even overdue. “In the context of 
seeing markets rise nonstop over 
the last year and a half, I would 
not consider this reaction se- 
vere,” Rob Sweers, equity strate- 
gist at Paribas Capital Markets 
in Amsterdam, said. 

Many said they saw no reason 
to fear the US. interest -rale in- 
crease would have anyimpaclon 
Germany’s long-anticipated rate 
cuts. Those cuts, however, are 
considered Kkdy to be delayed at 
least another month because of 
recent growth in the German 
money supply. 

Belgium Cuts Rates Anyway 

Compiled by Om Staff From Dispatches 

BRUSSELS — Interest rates in the European Union can come 
down despice the rise in U.S. short rates, Finance Minister Philippe 
Maystadi of Belgium said Monday. 

He spoke after Belgium's central bank, against expectations, cut its 
key lending rates earlier in the day. The bank trimmed its central rate 
fra money market lending by 0.15 percentage point to 6.70 percem and 
its regular overnight interest rate by 0.15 point to 830 percent. 

The Federal Reserve Board-engineered increase prompted specu- 
lation that hoped-for cuts in European rates might be detaved. 

Bui Mr. Maystadt said there was no threat m the change in relative 
currency values. "We consider that a certain appreciation of the dollar 
against European currencies is justified.'’ be said. (Reuters, API 

"I wouldn’t see it having any 
impact on the timing of the next 
German move,” Michael Burk, 
currency economist at Citibank 
in London, said 

The big worry facing Europe- 
an investors is what a slight rise 
in American interest rates wfll 
mean to Americans' appetite for 
European shares.' Last year, an 
estimated S 1 30 billion in invest- 
ment money flowed out of the 
United States and helped to push 
up stock and bond prices from 
Seoul to Stockholm. 

But with some analysts in Eu- 
rope now predicting that US. 
interest rates wfl] rise by as much 
as 1.5 percentage points over the 
coming year, there is concern 
that Americans could lose their 
lilting fra overseas investments. 

Some, however, saw a positive 
sde to the unexpected timing of 
the Federal Reserve Board’s 
move, which generally had not 
been expected until a few 
months later. By not waiting for 
hard evidence of a resurgence in 
inflation, they said, the Fed may 
have staged a pre-emptive strike. 

“By acting early, they have 
avoided the need for an all-out 
war against inflation,” Mr. Burk 

Still with American interest 
rates now at last headed higher 
and European rates still on a 
downward path, an important 
threshold in the long bull market 
has “been passed. Mr. Sweers of 
Paribas said he did not think 
European investors would easily 
shrug off the U.S. rate move. 

Although he insisted that ea- 
ger buyers still were waiting in 
the wings, he said “I expect that 
investors will get more cautious 
and that companies will have to 
provide better evidence that their 
earnings are indeed improving.” 

That in itself would represent 
a major change of stance. By 
most estimates, German shares, 
for instance, are now trading at 
prices averaging a high 30 times 
last year’s corporate earnings. 
Meanwhile, the German econo- 
my remains deep in recession, 
and the Bundesbank shows no 
hurry about cutting rates to 
bring it off the bottom. 

KKR Starts 
In Europe 

Bkxmberz Businas Sens 

LONDON — Kohl berg, Kravis, 
Roberts & Co. is establishing its 
first West European venture-capi- 
tal company under the leadership 
of Ian Martin, who resigned Mon- 
day as nonexecutive deputy chair- 
man of Grand Metropolitan PLC. 

Mr. Martin will he chairman and 
chief executive of K oh) berg Kra- 
vis's Glenisla Group, which will 
concentrate on investing in West- 
ern European companies. 

Mr. Martin. 58. was at Grand 
Metropolitan for 14 years. He led 
the company's acquisition of Ptils- 
bury Co. in 1988. and helped the 
US’. food company increase its 
profits by 50 percent in 1990. 

Kohlberg Kravis has about S2 
billion available for equity invest- 
ment worldwide on which Glenisia 
can draw. 

"What differentiates us is that 
we could make a £300 million deal 
or buy a number of smaller opera- 
tions and siring them together.” 
Mr. Martin said. 

Once acquired, the acquisitions 
would be placed under Kohlberg 
Kravis's management. Mr. Martin 
said he would then work as the 
chairman of the acquired company. 

“We are looking for situations 
where we can either identify or cre- 
ate value through restructuring and 
company turnarounds.” be said. 
“There may be situations where we 
see value, but that value has to be 
drawn out." 

Mr. Martin’s departure from 
Grand Metropolitan had been ex- 
pected. He was passed over at 
Grand Met for the position of chief 
executive officer when AUen Shep- 
pard’s role of chairman and chief 
executive was split last year.

CARS: Japanese Husde to Regain U.S. Market Share 

Continued from Page 9 
now account for rrairiiiy 40 percent 
of the American light-vehicle mar- 

The Japanese held 29.1 perc ent 
of the passenger car market in 
1993, down only 1.1 percent in the 
two years. Bat m light trades, then- 
market share last year was 13.6 

Japanese executives said they 
misjudged the extent of this market 
shift, fri addition, pickup trades 
and two-door spcrt-utility vehicles 
are classifi ed as commerdal vehi- 
cles subject to a 25 percent U.S. 
tariff, virtually pricing surih models 
out of the markeL 
But the Japanese companies 
have some advantage s, not t he least 
loyal American cust o mers happy 
with their Japanese cars. And they 
«rfitl have a quality edge, if a shrink- 
ing one, which translates into a 
higher resale value for used cars. 

The surest way for the Japanese 
to gai" back market share is with a 
popular new product, as Nis^n 
showed with the Altima and also 
with the Quest minivan, bunt fra it 
by Ford. . . . _ 

This year Nissan is hoping to 

increase sales 10 to 20 percem, said 
Misutaka Kurumisa wa, dep uty 
general manager of European and 
North American operations. It 
introduce a new Maxima, lts mgn- 
end in the spring, followed 
about a year from now by a new 
Sentra, its economy mood. 

Honda, tong the epitome of sat> 
cess in. the United Slates, saw its 
sales ditto 6.8 percent last year and 
its market snare, including its 
Acunt division, fall to 5-1 percent 
from 6 percent in 1992. ^ 

The company sad it opcatC la 
sales increase this year because of a 

United States 
Fraud Claims 

rtew Accord introduced last sum- 
mer, and it has started, to sell a 
sport utility vehicle made by Isazu 
Motors Ltd. Until now Honda has 
made only passenger cats. 

Later this year, Honda will intro- 
duce a minivan of its own design. 
Executives say the vehicle wfll be a 
cross between a passenger car and 

a ’ in l ent mflu vmsa 

The new product, based cm the 
Accord, is expected to have a lower 
flora than moss minivans, allowing 
easier entry yet a high cefling to 
maintain the roominess of a van. 

Virtually all the companies are 
increasing production at their 

American factories to protect their 
costs from the rise of the yea. 

They are also designing and pro- 
ducing some models specifically for 

the American market Toyota is do- 
ing that with its new Avalon, a 
roomier replacement for the high- 
end Crcssida that was announced 
at the Chicago Auto Show last 
week. Honda {Hans to d e sig n and 
build a new model of the Acura in 
the United States fra introduction 
in toe 1996 model year. 

In the long run, the Japanese 
hope to cut costs enough to com- 
pensate fra toe yen’s rise, but that 
will take time.

Asian Stock Markets Slide 

By Kevin Murphy 

UDUB inmnf 

IIONG KONG — Spooked by a 
anall rae in U.S. interest rates, 
Asian stock markets stumbled 
in Haig Kong 
and Thailand — as investors 
looked to New York for sines that 
the region's boll run was over 

cent, and the Stock Exchange of 
Thailand index quickened a 
monthlong slide, drop ping 6 9 per- 
cent in heavy trading ted by small 

kTckyo, Asia’s biggest market, 
Jk Nikkis average dosed down 
287.03 points, or M percent, at 
20,014.40. But analysts said devel- 
opments in the united States 
played little part, as Japanese in- 
vestors were focusing cm domestic 
economic and political problems. 

Elsewhere, however, investors 
from New Zealand to Seoul seemed 
to fear that the U.S. interest-rate 
increase Friday and that da/s 2.4 
percent dtdme in the New York 
stock market could slow the strong 
flows of American investment that 
have lifted most Asian markets to 
record highs. 

Designed as a pre-emptive move 
against inflation by the Federal Ro- 

serve Board, the quarter-point in- 
<^ease in a short-term interest rate, 
the federal funds rate, prompted 
wall Street's biggest single-day loss 
m two years. 

“The Asian markets reacted as 
usual..— they overreacted," WB- 
1 ,‘r. nun: ■ « 

Salomon Brothers Hong Kong 
LuL, said, citing the region's strong 
growth in corporate earnings and 
prospects for increased exports to a 
rebounding U.S. economy. 

But it was the fickleness of die 
markets, winch cli mb ed steeply in 
1993 as foreign investors chased 
high returns, that seemed to weigh 
heavily on most traders' minds. 

“External factors have brought 
Thailand down,*’ Marie Reinecke, a 
dealer with Raring Securities in 
Bangkok, said. “And domestic fac- 
tors will make sure it stays on its 
knees. The overreaction has-been 

“If Wall Street takes another 
tumble, ah bets are off in some of 
these markets,” Mr. Phillip s said. 

Several Asian markets will be 
closed in the next few days to cele- 
brate the Lunar New Year, raising 
fears that souk investors would be 
tempted to seQ heavily Tuesday if 
New York shows signs of falling 

further, rather than hold positions 
over a time of market dosings. 

The Kuala Lumpur composite 
index, one of the strongest per- 
formers in the region in 1993, lost 
4.6 percent Monday, continuing 
the weakness it has shewn over the 
past five weeks. Hie Seoul market 
declined 2.9 percent, and Jakarta 
and Manila fefl as weh. 

The Strai is Times index in ! 
pore fdl 2.0 percent, the AH* 
aries Index m Sydney lost 21 per- 
cent, and Wellington's Top 40 
Index finished down 2.0 percent. 

Archie Han, research head of 
Crosby Securities in Hong Kong, 
said, “There a time when 
people stop and look at this market 
and decide nothing has really 
changed,” citing such fundamental 
factors as the still booming busi- 
ness with a rapidly growing tf trou- 
bled Chinese economy. 

But in die meantime, some major 
investors may be poised to step out 
of Hong Kong and other Asian 
markets fa- a while, saying stocks 
had just become too expensive. 

Nomura Research Institute Eu- 
rope, for example, is recommend- 
ing; that its cheats not hold any 
Hong Kong stocks. 

Near Deal 
On Power 


JAKARTA — Indonesia is 
to sign a deal with a foreign 
consortium to produce elec- 
tricity from a planned S2J bil- 
lion coal-fired power plant in 
East Java, industry sources 
said Monday. 

They said the Paiton power 
deal, the first major venture 
involving the private sector, 
would open a potentially lu- 
crative area for foreign and 
domestic investment. 

The consortium, grouped 
under a joint venture called PT 
Paiton Energy Co., indudes 
Mitsui & Co. of Japan and 
Mission Energy BV of the 
Netherlands, a unit of Mission 
Energy of the United States. 
Both hold 322< percent. 

The government and the 
consortium have agreed, after 
almost two years of negoliar 
tions, on pricing tariffs for the 
two 610-megawatt units. 

“President Suharto has ap- 
proved the agreement and it is 
likely the contract will be 
signed between Feb. 9 and 
15” one source said. 

Hong Kong Developer Attracts Bidder 

Compiled by Oar Staff From Diyachet 

national Ltd, a real estate develop- 
er, said Monday that an unidenti- 
fied bidder wanted to boy part of 
the company. There was specula- 
tion that the Chinese-controlled 
OTIC Pacific Ltd. was the poten- 
tial buyer. 

HKR provides recreational ser- 
vices for resid ential housing on 
Lantau island, a sparsely populat- 
ed area that is likely to be Hnfc«i 
with Haig Kong island and the 
Kowloon Peninsula if a controver- 
sial airport project is completed. 

Trading in HKR, its pare nt com - 
pany, Mingly Corp., and in OTIC 
Pacific was suspended Monday on 


was the buyer in question. 

The fact that a Chinese company 
appears ready to buy into Lantau 
Island suggests that Beijing intends 
to see the airport project through, 
despite its protests about tne 
amount of debt China could inherit 
from the airport. 

Financing for the 'airport, the

subject of conriderabJe bickering

Hong Kong officials have gone

Beijing’s approval. If the project is

HKR International recently of-

China on Monday gave state 
workers a 44-bour work week, 
down from their usual 48, in es- 
sence allowing them Saturday af- 
ternoons off fa the first time since 
the communist takeover of 1949, 
Reuters reported from Beijing. 

The change, decreed by the Stale 
Council and reported by the offi- 
cial Xinhua news agency, follows 
last month’s adoption of China’s 
first nationwide mini mum- wage 

Even at 44 hours, or five-and-a- 
half days, China's official work 
week is one of the world's longest, a 
relic of four decades of orthodox 
socialist labour management that 
gauged national prestige on steady 
production growth.

Tokyo Near Accord 
On Stimulus That 
Delays Tax Rise 

By Steven Bruil 

International Herald Tribune 

TOKYO — Japan's coalition 
government failed Monday to meet 
a self-imposed deadline for a com- 
promise economic stimulus plan, 
but it appeared set to reach an ac- 
cord Tuesday that would represent a 
victory by Socialist coalition mem- 
bers over the Ministry of Finance. 

Coalition leaders and Finance 
Ministry officials met all day Mon- 
day without reaching agreement on 
a tax proposal. The plan is the core 
of the economic pump-priming 
measures that Prime Minister Mor- 
ihiro Hosokawa wants to deliver 
when he meets President Bill Clin- 
ton in Washington on Friday. 

The coalition leaders, however, 
hinted that progress had been made 
and indicated a compromise put- 
ting off a tax increase would be 
within reach when discussions re- 
sumed Tuesday. 

“The gears are really beginning 
to mesh, tut we haven't yet reached 
an agreement,” Yuichi Ichikawa, 
secretary-general of Komefto. one 
of the coalition parties, said. 

The coalition has been in disar- 
ray since Thursday, when Mr. Ho- 
sokawa announced plans to impose 
a 7 percent value-added tax, start- 
ing in 1997, to finance 6 trillion yen 
($55 J3 billion) in income tax cuts 
over the next three years. Mr. Ho- 
sokawa qztickly retracted the plan 
after the Socialists, the coalition’s 
largest party, objected. 

The Socialists support cutting 
the income tax to help Japan's re- 
cession-bound economy, but they 
vehemently oppose the proposed 

offsetting rax. The Finance Minis- 
try has been equally adamant in 
demanding that the coalition even- 
tually raise the value-added tax to 
finance any cuts in the income tax. 

The likely compromise would 
scrap the so-called people's welfare 
tax and set up a committee that 
would have one year io agree on 
how the income-tax cut would be 
financed, according to Japanese 
media reports. That would buy 
time for the Socialists but mark a 
major loss of face for the Finance 
Ministry, which has urged that the 
issue be settled now. 

An agreement on Tuesday would 
come in time for the ministry to 
prepare a draft of its budget for the 
fiscal year that begins April 1 by 
Thursday, the day Mr. Hosokawa 
is io leave for Washington. 

Separately on Monday, the coali- 
tion approved a plan to raise taxes 
on liquor, adding an estimated 100 
billion yen to government revenue, 
Japanese media reported. 

Mr. Hosokawa needs the budget 
and the pump-priming package to 
demonstrate that Japan is doing its 
part to reduce its trade surplus with 
the United Slates. The stimulus 
measures are important because 
Tokyo and Washington re main at 
an impasse over the U.S. demand 
that Japan agree to “objective crite- 
ria" for measuring progress in the 
opening of its markets. 

That sense of crisis was deep- 
ened Monday when the govern- 
ment reported that Japan's current 
account surplus had swollen to a 
record $131.35 billion in 1993 from 
the previous record level of $11755 
billion in 1991

Japanese Bank Loans Slow 

Compiled tn Our Staff From Dispatches 

TOKYO — Japan's 1 1 major commercial banks reported on 
Monday their first year-on-year decline in monthly lending since 
data was first compiled in 1954. 

The Federation of Bankers Association said its members lent 
22116 trillion yen (SI.99 billion) in January, down 1.1 percent from 
December and 0.7 percent below the first month of 1993. The group 
attributed the decline to fewer business starts and lower capital 
investment. Deposits fdl to 175.52 trillion yen, down 05 percent 
from December and 0.4 percent from January 1993. 

Separately, Standard & Poor's Corp. said Japanese banks would 
adopt a gradual approach to writing off bad loans, with some taking 
up to a decade to clean up their balance sheets. “The fact that 
substantial write-offs will have to occur has already been factored 
into the ratings," the agency said. It warned that a long period of 
write-offs would pressure bank stocks and thus the entire Tokyo 
equity market, which would limit ihe ability of the banks to use 
hidden reserves to absorb problem loans. f Bloomberg, .AFX)

A month before the “March 
Madness " of the NCAA champi- 
onship tournament starts. Ken- 
tucky's coach, Rick Pitino, is giving 
his team a taste of what's to come. 

The seventh-ranked Wildcats 
started a tough seven-day stretch 


Sunday by beating No. 1 1 Massa- 
chusetts, 67-64. 

On Wednesday, Kentucky (18-3) 
will be at home to No. 6 Arkansas 
of the Southeastern Conference. 
On Saturday, the Wildcats wiD be

Against theMinuteinen(17-4)of 
the Atlantic 10, Jared Prickett got 
17 points and 15 rebounds in the 
neutral-site game at East Ruther- 
ford, New Jersey. 

“I think Jared realized that if we 
didn't rebound, we wouldn't win." 
Pitino said. “We were fortunate to 
the win the game. I'm very proud of 
our guys and the way they executed 
down the stretch." 

Kentucky scored the game's final 
seven points. Lou Roe had 28 
points and 13 rebounds for Massa- 
chusetts, but did not get open for a 
shot in the last three minutes. 

But the Massachusetts' coach. 

John Calipari, who had been dis- 
traught over his team’s poor play, 
saw signs of progress. 

“It means I learned a lot about 
my team," Calipari said. “I learned 
that we’re a little bit better than I 
though L" 

. No. 3 Kansas 94, Nebraska 87: 
■Steve Woodberry scored 25 points 
as Kansas (20-3. 5-2 Kg Eight) be-

In return for a government-aid 
package of 700 million francs 
(SI 1 8.6 milli on) over five years, the 
raring societies promised to unify 
under one roof and shut down at 
least one of the nine Paris tracks to 

save money. The 12-member com- 
mittee decided unanimously to 
dose the trade at Maisons-Lamtte 
to the west of Paris in 1995. Then 
nine members voted to shut down 
Chantilly because of the 15 Bulli on 
francs needed for refurbtshmoats.

To Win 7 Straight

Pro Bowl 


NBA Standings 

The Associated Press 

“San Antonio Spurs" and “NBA 
elite" don't often appear in the 
same sentence, but that should 

The Spurs defeated the New Jer- 
sey Nets, 104-102, in overtime Sun- 
day night to complete a three-game 
road trip with three victories. San 
Antonio has a seven-game winning 


streak, at present the longest in the 
National Basketball Association. 

With only one game left before 
the All-Star break, the Spurs are 
33-14 and only 114 games behind 
the Houston Rockets in the Mid- 
west Division. Only the Rockets, 
the Seattle SoperSonics, New York 
Knicks, Chicago Butts and Atlanta 
Hawks have a better record than 
San Antonio, and not by much. 

“I like what I am seeing with this 
team," center David Robinson sad. 
“We're growing up and m a t u rin g 
and craning on as a te am . Dennis 
Rodman has really helped. 1 feel this 
year we are eouipped to win. I didn't 
feel like that m the past" 

Robinson was key to San Anto- 
nio's victory, sinking two foul shots 
with 4.1 seconds left tomakeit 104- 
102. He then deflected the ensuing 
inbounds pass to prevent New Jer- 
sey from getting off a decent shot at 
(he end of overtime. 

Robinson played 51 minutes, 
and had 36 pom is and 12 rebounds. 
Rodman grabbed 20 rebounds; it 
was the 18th time he has had at 
least 20 in a game this season. 

Derrick Coleman led New Jersey 
with 28 points and 14 rebounds, 
but he fouled Robinson on a drive 

down the lane to put the San Anto- 
nio center on the line for the game- 
winning points. 

Suns 89, Buis 88: Chicago, play- 
ing in Phoenix for the first time 
sirwi> winning its third straight 
NBA title on John Paxson’s last- 
second 3-pointer last June, had an- 
other chance at a last-shot victory 
but closely guarded Scottie Pippen 
shot an airbali at the buzzer. 

Kevin Johnson, who missed 15 
of the last 16 games because of a 
lower-leg injury, led the Suns with 
22 points. 

Knicks 95, Made 77: In Madison 
Square Garden, Patrick Ewing got 
the better of Shaquille O’Neal as 
New York won for the seventh time 
in eight games. 

Ewing got 32 rxiints and nine 
rebounds; O’Neal had 22 and 13. 
Charles Oakley had 21 rebounds 
for New York.

The Associated Press 

HONOLULU — Bobby Hd>ert, 
a late replacement for the injured 
Troy Aikman in the Pro Bowl, engi- 
neered two second-halT scoring 
drives that gave the National Foot- 
ball Conference a 17-3 victory over 
the American Conference. 

The Atlanta Falcons’ quarter- 
back completed four of six throws 
for 68 yards, one a 15-yard touch- 
down pass to Cris Carter of the 
Minnesota Vikings 1:19 into the 
final quarter Sunday. 

That followed a fumble recovery

Major Cottage Scores 

by Chicago's Richard Dent at the 
AFC 19, after Minnesota's John 
Randle stripped the ball from War-

Andre Risen of the Falcons, who 
had six catches for 86 yards, was 
voted the game's most valuable 


San Antonio 





P NFC defense came up with 
four interceptions and two nimble 
recoveries. Chicago’s Donnell 
Woolford intercepted a pass by 
Boomer Eaiason of the New York 
Jets in the NFC end zone with 4:30 
left to ensure victory. 

Tight end Brent Jones of the San 
Francisco 49ers fractured his right 
ankle in the first half. He witt be 
able to begin working out again in 
six to right weeks, which means he 
should be ready of training camp. 

Some of the NFL’s big names 
missed the game because of inju- 
ries, iududmg quarterbacks Aik- 
man of Dallas, Joe Montana of 
Kansas Gty and Phil Simms of the 
New York Giants: running backs 
Emmitt Smith of Dallas ana Barry 
Sanders of Detroit; wide receivers 
Andre Reed of Buffalo and Sterling 
Sharpe of Green Bay, and defen- 
sive end Bruce Smith of Buffalo. 

In Houston, H a k ee m Olriuwon 
had 25 points and 17 rebounds, and 

Otis Thorpe added 19 points and 
17 rebounds against Minnesota. 

It was also announced that the 
trade that was to bring Sean Elliott

The Rockets’ coach, Rudy Tom- 

janovich, would not say what part 
of the physical Elliott had failed. 

and the Pistons president, Tom 
Wilson, said, “I don’t want to com-

Sean's dement of privacy.’’ 

Wilson added: “But I can tell

bodies flacked where bread and macaroni and 
bwM had owe been m.Sarajevo's central mar- 
Sixty-oglu were dead, some 200 wounded 
by a mortar attack. A prosthesis lay on the 
ground, attached l to a boot but no longer to a 
person. Boras aid sot want to see any more. 

HecouMhawe been in that market on Satur- 
day, rf a UN plane had not whisked him away a 
(fay jariier to b^ Ms preparations fctrbob- 
skdduig at the Winter Games. Boras said he 

lived in a Catholic seminary, only 100 meters 
away from the market where people canw to 
% food and trade clothes. The sexnmaxy was 
safer than his parents* home, and he could 
count on clectndty and extra food for his 
mother. .. 

-“I couldn't stop crying,” Boras was saying 
now in the Olympic athletes’ village, sitting on a 
couch, kgs crossed, bade in front of a televi- 
sion, Ms eyes now diy -and bdBow. On the 
screen, the carnage had its own logo — Tenor 
in -Sarajevo : — : and theme mnae “life Is so 
cheap , now, worth the price of one bnllet,” 
Boras said. 

Hc did not know for sure,' but his parents 
would not likely- have been at the market His 
mother is an English teacher, his father a retired 
cryil engineer. There was no hope of calling 
home to find out if they were safe. Boras said. 
The phone lines had boss cut a long' time ago. 

“I am worried about my girlfriend,” Boras 

He is 26, a Croat tall and pale, with the 
dipped haircut of incarceration. He is buQt like 
a basketball player now instead of a thick, 
miiOTilgr bobdedder. He has lost IS pounds (8 
kilos) in the last year. The Olympics are not for 
winning, just for proving that be is stiU alive. 

“Life is made of small things, and this small 
tiring is very important for Sangevo," Boras 
said. “I want to be here to show people that we 
are not savages, that we are normal, and to 
draw people that we stiU betieve in our coun- 

There are eight others here with him cm the 
Bosnia-Hazegovina Olympic team — three 
Serbs, two Croats and four Muslims — athletes 
living and training together when their wbde 
country has blown apart. 

“People don't understand — about 85 per- 

cent of Muslims and Serbs and Croats want to 
hvc together in peace,” said Nizar Zaciragic. 
another member of the bobsled team. 

Zaciragic left Sarajevo cm Jan. 25. making his 
way to the airport in an armored personnel 
carrier. Here in Norway, he said, he is eating 
only once a day because the food is too rich 
after a diet of bread and wans- at home. He sat 
with Boras in the Olympic village on Sunday, 
watching the bloody stack of bodies on televi- 
sion, leaning forward in his chair, mouth agape, 
his thick hands clenched, wondering why some- 
one will not stop the fighting, Disgusted, he 
blamed President Bin Qhuon of the United 
States and President Francois Mitterrand of 
France and Prime Minister John Major of Brit- 
ain for their inaction. He mentioned their 
names and the words came out as if be were 

“One serious phone call could stop this war,” 

Zaciragic said. “Clinton and Mitterrand and 
Major, they are drinking whiskey and eating 
steaks andp laying golf. They don’t care. They 
are dolls. There is some great eminence pulling 
their strings b ehin d a curtain.'' 

The nine Bosnian athletes will march in Sat- 
urday’s opening ceremony at the Olympics, 
walking behind the Bosnian flag with its field of 
white and its crest bearing a silver slash and 
golden lilies. Zaciragic said he felt more numb 
than proud. 

“I L’s a strange feeling, like I had an operation 
on my body and they used an anesthetic,” he 

Verona Maijanovic, a 20-year-old luger, the 
daughter of a Serbian father and Croatian 
mother, said she Felt selfish and guilty. She has 
been out of Sarajevo exactly one year. On 
Friday, she spoke 10 her father and mother and 
sister For the first time since she left. Two 

minutes on a satellite call, enough time only to 
find out that they were safe and the bouse was 
still standing. 

“fin ashamed to be here." Maijanovic said, 
adding: ”1 left all these people and they are 
getting killed, and I'm here just to do sports. If 
you live in Sarajevo, you don't know what it is 
to be free. If you're not in Sarajevo, you don't 
have to worry about food, you don’t have to 
worry about getting killed while you sleep, you 
don't have to worry about drinking a cup of 
coffee in a caffc." 

What happens after the Games? Will Bos- 
nia's athletes go home? These are questions 
Boras asks himself over and over, and still he 
has no answers. 

“The only wish of my mother is that I get out 
and stay out.” be said his voice halting. “She 
doesn't want me to come home. She wants me 
to be safe."

Zfeaiso entered the batting cage to hit some soft pitches from a 
. White Sox scout and then some harder throws from a college playen 
“Tve never been afraid to fad,” Jordan said “That’s something 


to accept f ailing . But L can’t accept not fayin g * 

Jordan agreed to a contract with the Nashville Sounds, the White 
Sax affiliate in the Class AAA American Association. Jordan said he 

• is willing to go to the mmors if Ihe White Snr think h* ran maV^ if tn 
‘ the majors. He said he will tty to malm the major league chib this 

“Hefll have to earn it, nothing’s faring tn bn prosi tn Him," grid d ie

Jordan’s efforts to play baseball with the White Sox became 
serious last month, even though he hasn't played baseball since high 
school He has been taking baiting practice from Schuder, a former 
major league pitcher. 

Both Sdroeaer and the team’s manager, Gene Lament, have said 
; that Jordan’s hitting has progressed, but both have also said that it’s 
'a onc-in-a- inillr on chance for him to make a major league team, 
despite his athletic abtHties. -

Arraigned for Murder 


The Associated Press- ' 

LORAIN, Ohio — The brother of 
UB. Olympic ice dancer Efizhbetix 
Punsalan pleaded not guilty Monday 
U> a charge of aggravated murder in the 
stabbing death of his father. . . 

Ricardo Pmsalan, 20, waived his 
right to a prdiminaiy hearing and Lo- 
rain Municipal Judge Gustmo Nunez 
turned the case over .to the Lorain 
County grand jury. He ordered Punsa- 
lan held without bond. . 

. Punsalan was allowed to meet briefly 

wjlh 'family members before the hear- 
ing, court officials said. 

He was arrested after his mother and 

a brother found Dr. Ernesto R. Punsa- 
bn, 57, stabbed in his bed. 

An autopsy showed Punsalan died of 
blood loss, Lorain County Coroner 
Paul Matos said. One wound, in the 
chest, had jrieroed the heart, and one in 
the upper abdomen had pierced the 
stomaco, Matos said. 

Officials would not comment on a 
motive • 

The UJS. Olympic Committee said 
EEzabeih Punsalan and her husband 
and partner. Jerod Swallow, were to 
arrive in Norway with the other UB. 
skaters on Thursday. 

Punsalan, in a statcnxnl Issued care- 
er, said she would compete ax the 
Games in tribute to her father. He was 
stabbed Friday night in the family’s 
home in Sheffield Lake, 20 xnfles (32 
kikimeters) west of Geydand. 

“My father was _ 
achievements *nd would have 

meto^<mroLiBehammer,” rite said. 
“1 win try to skate my very best there in 
his memory.” 

Punsalan, 23, and SwaBow, 27, won 
U.Sl Figure Stating Championships in 
Detroit They had married m September 
and Eve in Pontiac, Madman. 

• Ricardo Punsalan had been released 
on a weekend pass from the psychiatric 
mat at SL Joseph Hospital and Health 
Center, in Lorain on Friday afternoon, 

- said the Reverend John J. McCaffrey 
of SL Thomas Catholic Church. 

The elder Punsalan. a general sur- 
geon, was aware of his sours problems 
but didn’t want to commit him to a 
long-term cent e r, said a family friend. 
Dr. P&resh Paid, a colleague at EMH 
Regional Medical Center m Elyria.

and his father never fought- “I never 
heard Dr. Punsalan raise Ms voice to 
any of his kids or Mt them,” he said. 

Tocchi said he also was aware of 
Ricardo Punsalan’s medication switch. 

“1 know he was on Prozac at one 
time and that he just was switched over 
to some other medication a short time 
ago,” Tocchi said. “But I don’t know 
what he is taking now or what he was 
switched over from.” 

Prozac is an anti-depressant 
used in combating depression

World quint champion Dan Jansen of the United States just missed breaking the the lJMO-meter record Monday in a time trial 

Jansen Gives 
Warning: Just 
Misses Mark 


HAMAR, Norway — World 

Jansen sent** 5$ rivals a warning 
Monday when he just missed 
breaking the world 1,000-meter re- 
cord in a time iriaL 
The U.S. skater sizzled round the 
trade in a personal best of 1 minute, 
12.40 seconds, 0.14 seconds inside 
the world mark set by Canada's 
Kevin Scott last December. 

The trial was not timed electroni- 
cally but by stopwatch, which Jan- 
sen s coach, Peter Mueller, said was 
usually 0.2 seconds too fast. 

The corrected time would be 
about 1:1260. 

“That’s good enough. Well take 
it,” said a smiling Mueller. “It’s the 
first time he's ever been below 1 
minute 13 seconds,” 

Jansen, who has raced in three 
Olympics but never won a medal, 
also finish ed first in a 500-meter 
trial recording 35.90. He set the 
world record of 35.76 last month in 

The trials were designed to give 
skaters the chance to get used to the 
super-fast rink at Hamar. 

Russia's Sergei KJevchcnia and 
Alexander Golubev finished sec- 
ond and third behind Jansen, in 
3620 and 36.30, respectively. 

“That's not bad at an, it’s totaDy 
satisfactory for a time trial" said 
the Russian coach, Boris Vasilovsky.

Miller Comes From Far Back, 1987, to Win at Pebble Beach 

nament victory since he won at 
Pebble Beach seven years ago. 

“That didn’t really happen,” said 
Miller, whose final-round 74 gave 
him a total of 7-uuder-par 28 1 , one 
stroke better than Watson and 
three other players — Jeff Maggert, 
Corey Pavin and Kirk Triplett — 
who never really threatened. “It 
was a mirage. It was weird, like the 
whole thing wasn’t happening. I 
had this strange sense of calm.” 
He was the only one who did. 
Far the other players on the rainy, 
windy and cold day, nerves were as 
jagged as the Monterey Peninsula's 

Watson collapsed down the 
stretch, three-putting both the 16th 
and 17th boles to fall out of the 
lead. He finished with a 74 when 
his birdie attempt the 18th hole 
stopped short, dead on line. 

Dudley Hart, the third-round 
leader who began the day at 10 
under par, ran afoul of that most 
scenic and most deadly portion of 
Pebble Beach — the eighth, ninth 

and 10th holes that are sometimes 
called Carmel Hdl He bogeyed 
them aD and finished with a 78 that 
dropped him into a tie for seventh. 

Miller did not three-putt a bole 
all day, a fact that is remarkable, 
given his ongoing battles with the

New York Times Sorter 

Before Tonya Harding’s life went 
from hard times to television's tab- 
loid “Hard Copy,” before Nancy 
Kerrigan became America's victim- 
ized sweetheart and her attackers 
became America's most wanted, 
these Winter Olympics figured to be 
a placid gathering in UUehammer, 
Norway, of familiar participants 
and redundant accomplishment. 

Only two years have passed since 
the last Winter Games, in Albert- 
ville, France. Many athletes have 
remained in training, not having to 
shelve their Olympic hopes for the 
customary four-year wait. 

Bonnie Blair and Alberto Tomba 
are bade hoping to win their fourth 
and fifth gold medals; Dan Jansen 
is back, too. still hoping to win his 
first. The idea behind this Olympic 
restructuring, the separating of the 
Winter Games from the shadow of 
the Summer Games, was partly to 
give the smaller, quaint Winter 
Olympics their own identity. Now 
they have one. The wrong one. 

The stories of Blair. Jansen and 
Tomba as well as the return to 
ic figure skating of gold 
lists Brian Boitano. Katerina 
Win and Torvill and Dean have 
been overwhelmed by the Jan. 6 
dubbing attack on Kerrigan. 

It is a story unlike any other that 
has contravened the tattered Olym- 
pic spirit of fair play and sports- 
manship, the specter of one ath- 
lete’s associates attempting to 
incapadtate another athlete for 
competitive and financial gain. 

Even as Juan Antonio Samar* 
anch. president of the International 
Olympic Committee, continues to 
call for a mice from the fighting in 
Bosnia during the Games, be can- 
not guarantee peace in the genteel 
world of figure skating. 

“It takes us down to the wres- 
tling league," said Gain; Ferguson, 
president of the U.S. Figure Skat- 
ing Association. “That’s too bad." 

[Harding's lawyers issued a 
statement Monday, The Associated 
Press reported. It’said: 

[Tonya Harding is concentrating 
ot her preparation for the Olympics 
and working with her attorneys on a 
response to the request of the 
USFSA We stress that in its state- 
ment the USFSA does not conclude 
that Ms. Harding has in any way 
been involved in any wrongdoing or 
in any way violated its code of eth- 
ics. Ms. Harding will respond to 
this request in compliance with the 
bylaws and rules of the USFSAJ 

But in an odd, even perverse 
way, this is the best thing that ever 
happened to figure skating. The 
sport has gone from the sports page 
10 the front page. 

Tbe women's competition in 
Norway, CBS officials say, may 
provide tbe highest rating ever for 
an Olympic program. Some televi- 
sion executives are even talking Su- 
per Bowl ratings numbers. 

“I don't think anything could 
have done more for figure skating 
than this," said Tom Collins, a 
skating tour promoter from Minne- 
apolis. “It's loo bad it had to hap- 
pen this way. But it has." 

Michael Rosenberg, an agent 
from Palm Springs, California, who 
once represented Harding, said: 
“This has got all the dements or 
soap opera, Shakespeare and fairy 
tales. You’ve got a villain, you've got 
a heroine who lodes like Snow 
White, and you’ve got this incredible 
drama. The kingdom is at stake.” 

Kerrigan has become the most 
visible, sympathetic female athlete 
in the world. Two years ago. ner- 

vous painfully inarticulate, she 
struggled to answer simple ques- 
tions put to her at news conferences. 

Eleven months ago. at the world 
championships in Prague, she skat- 
ed a disastrous lone program, fin- 
ished fifth and was" caught by tbe 
television cameras saying “1 just 
want to die" as she 'awaited her 
scores in tbe kiss-and-cry area. 

She had a fragile confidence and 
had never skated a clean program in 
practice, much less in competition, 
winning a bronze medal at the 1992 
Winter Games only because Har- 
ding, who finished fourth, fell in 
both her short and long programs. 

But this attack has drawn Kerri- 
gan out of a skater’s sheltered life, 
has imbued her with a certain 
awareness and eloquence and, ac- 
cording to her coaches, intractable 

“She might have fragile emotions 
on the ice. bat she doesn't have 
fragile emotions about things like 
this,” said Mary SootvokL who 
coaches Kerrigan’ with her husband. 
Evy. “She's a very tough little girl 
She’s a fighter." 

Can she win a gold medal? Yes. 
but the competition is wide open. 

Even healthy, Kerrigan will not 
have skated before judges in nearly 
three months. She will not have 
competed against any of her Olym- 
pic opponents in four months. Sum 
Bonaly of France, tbe European 
champion, is a more skilled jumper, 
world champion Oksana BaiuL the 
16-year-old orphan from Ukraine, is 
a more degam skater. 

Chen Lu of China is another for- 
midable rival and potential medal- 
ist. Harding and Japan's Midori Ito. 
who has since turned professional 
after winning the silver medal in the 
1992 Olympics, are tbe only two 
w omen to nave landed a triple axeL 
the most difficult of jumps because 
it requires three and a half revolu- 
tions in the air. 

“I bare to skate the performance 
of my life," Kerrigan has said. 

If she does, and - wins a gold med- 
al. her comeback would earn Olym- 
pic mortality, as well as S10 to $15 
million in endorsements, appear- 
ances. tours, clinics, skating camps, 
even movies. 

By mid- January, some 35 movie- 
of-the week offers had come through 
the transom, producers eager to tell 
the story of her blue-collar upbring- 
ing. tbe daughter of a wdder and a 
blind mother from Stoneham. Mas- 
sachusetts. who overcame all the 
odds to become Rocky on skates. 

“If she wins, she will be the big- 
gest thing in the history of figure 
skating.” said Collins, tne promot- 
er. “She’ll do better than Dorothy 
Hamill and Pcggv Fleming com- 

Whatever happens at the Olym- 
pics, figure skating will never be 
looked upon the same. Its delicate 
porcelain world has shattered. A 
glamour sport bos been exposed for 
its pettiness and vicious one-up- 

In the coming weeks, the Olym- 
pic ice hall will be Tull and the rest 
of the world will be watching the 
figure skaters, if for all the unin- 
tended reasons. 

“This robs the Games of such an 
important ideal, fair play,” said 
John Ruger. who represents ath- 
letes as a member of the U.S. 
Olympic Committee. “It happened 
with Ben Johnson. He was one per- 
son who screwed up, but be robbed 
the Games themselves of some- 
thing. That’s what hurts so much.”

Checkbook Journalism 

Black Americans Visit an Indifferent Paris 


W ASHINGTON — Ii used to 
be a small Dan of the commu- 

VV be a small part of the commu- 
nications business, but "checkbook 
journalism" is now playing a major 
rote in bringing people the news. 
Without it one cannot ope rale 
competitively in the world’s second 
oldest profession. 

Lawrence Loving, a producer of 
ibe hard news show “Peeping 
Tom," told me. 

checkbook jour- 
nalism isn't as 
easy as it 
sounds. Every 
show has a 
checkbook, and 
if you want to 
beat the compe- m 
tition you have Kg f/ftmr 
to gel there „ . 

firsL" Buclmald 

“I assume that when you refer to 
checkbook journalism you are talk- 
ing about offering vast sums of 
money to people involved in a 
scandal or a crime." 

“That’s correct. When iL comes 
to yellow journalism everyone has 
his or her price, and the checkbook 
journalist has to figure out what it's 
worth to the public. For example, a 
teenage girl kidnaps the wife of her 
30-year-old lover and shaves the 
woman's head The girl is arrested. 
1 want my news crew to be down 
there within the hour offering the 
teenager a king's ransom for her 
version of what happened." 

“Suppose a husband shoots his 
wife’s lover. Is that worth any- 

“Not any more. The public 
couldn't care less. But a female 
teenager with a heart of stone is 
worth a fortune because the media 
are not only talking print rights, 
book rights and TV rights but also 
how much money the sweatshirts 
will bring in. The kids who work for 
me go out there with a blank check, 
and 1 won't allow them to come 

bark mnntv-hanHnl 

“Is checkbook journalism an in- 
vention of the tabloids?" 

“It was at one time, but now the 
TV shows are competing for the 
same stories. Show me a woman 
who operated on her husband with 
a carving knife, and I'll show you a 
lady who can get a 70-percent share 
of the audience." 

“How do your reporters practice 
checkbook journalism?" 

“Let's say a person high up in 
government circles is caught sneak- 
ing out of his house at 4 in the 
morning to rendezvous with a nude 
dancer from the Bijou Theatre, and 
his valet offers to talk. First, we 
would pay the valet for his tip. then 
we would open a Swiss bank ac- 
count for the stripper. We would 
also make sure that nobody else got 
to them by putting them up in a 
safe house in Disney World."

P ARIS — Attending a conference here 
on the relationship between black 
American artists and Europe, Professor 
Henry Louis Gates Jr., the chairman of the 
department of Afro-American studies at 
Harvard University, was surprised to find 
himself mistak en for a taxi driver. 

“There 1 was standing in the lobby of 
my chic Latin Quarter hotel, in my bind- 
made suit. Burberry coat and Paul Stuart 
scarf, when this French couple comes up 
to me and asks whether I'm their cabdriv- 
er.” Gates said. “I was polite, I just said 
no. At the time I was angry, but thinkin g 
about it later, I was furious. Those guys 
just weren’t seeing me." 

Time was. black American writers and 
painters came to Paris precisely to be seen 
and recognized, to become visible after the 
“invisibility" of life in the United States. 

Barnes Collection 
To Extendi World Tour 

The Associated Press 

NORRISTOWN. Pennsylvania 
—A judge has ruled that the Barnes 
Foundation can extend its world 
tour of SO Impressionist master- 
pieces to two more museums. 

The exhibition has traveled to 
Washington. Paris and Tokyo, 
where it is at the National Museum 
of Western Art until April 3. Judge 
Louis D. Stefan of Montgomery 
County approved the addition of the 
Kim bell Art Museum in Fort 
Worth, Texas, and the An Gallery 
of Ontario in Toronto. 

He continued, “Unfortunately, 
the days of cheap news are over, 
and now all the players have 
agents. Consequently, we have to 
pul up a lot more money than we 
used to. The witnesses in the Mi- 
chael Jackson scandal are now 
chafing more to teD their story to 
the media than he was paid to give 
a concert. Freedom of the press is 
much more costly than the public 

“So," I said, "you are looking for 
people trained in checkbook jour- 
nalism. Where do you find them?" 

“We have to train them our- 
selves. The journalism schools are 
pretending that it doesn't exist, so 
they refuse to teach their students 
that when it comes to getting a 
scoop, money talks." 

“Let's say that you come across 
two hot stories at the same time — 
a person who has seen Senator 
Packwood's diary and one who was 
in the same needlepoint class as 
Mrs. Bobbitt. Which one would 
you choose?” 

“We’d just cut up the money 
between them." 

Delaney, Ed Gark and Herbert Gentry 
came to savor it. 

“Paris is where I find myself," Delaney, 
who p oin ted luminous portraits of the 
French writer Jean Genet, said in the 

But today, with a wave of more or less 
avowed racism sweeping Western Europe 
as it grapples with a long recession and a 
wave of i mmig rants from Eastern Europe 
and North Africa, the situation is rather 

The French government has recently 
introduced legislation making it more dif- 
ficult for immigrants to gain French na- 
tionality. Interior Minister Charles Pasqua 
has said he intends to fill buses, planes and 
boats with deported immigrants in a drive 
to turn France into wbat be has called a 
“zero immigration" country. 

For the many black American artists 
attending the three-day conference held in 
the French Senate last week. Paris was 
clearly a place for a stimulating sojourn 
rather than any spiritual haven. “A real 
nice village." as one participant from New 
York put iL 

Bui the conference, called “A Visual 
Arts Encounter: African-Americans and 
Europe,” took place amid virtually com- 
plete indifference from the French press 
and Paris galleries, despite the presence of 
such distinguished artists as Raymond 
Saunders. Sam Gilliam. Faith Ringgold. 
Dewey Cnunpler, Betye Saar and Martin 

Where men like Baldwin were cult fig- 
ures in Paris, and later the Black Power 
movement fascinated French intellectuals, 
turning the city into what the French writ- 
er and teacher Michel Fabre once called “a

passage leading to the continent of negri- 
tude^ the French capital now seemed 
merely uninterested. “Almost nobody 
came from the Paris galleries, despite my 
invitations," said Maica Sanconie, a 
French woman who was one of the orga- 
nizers and is a director of the contempo- 
rary trans-Atlantic arts program of the 
California College of Arts and Crafts in 

“If the artists had been white Ameri- 
cans, they would have come. But somehow 
the gallery owners here imagine these peo- 
ple are second category. Even the curator 
of the Musee Sefta, which is currently 
exhibiting Jean- Michel BasquiaL failed to 
show up. 

BasquiaL whose powerful, disjointed 
canvases have been seen here as carrying 
an essentia] symbolism of (he black condi- 
tion in the United States, is one of the very 
few black American artists to have gamed 
a strong following here in recent years, 
being hailed by one critic. Nicholas Bour- 
riaud. as a “black Picasso.” 

Basquiat's early death — in 1 9S8, at the 
age of 27 — - has added to his mystique. 
Piny-ear’s sculptures have also gamed a 
considerable following. 

Dnsiderable following. 

But if the conference remained fairly 

anonymous, this very anonymity evidently 
amounted to something of a liberation for 
some of the artists present Several ex- 
pressed frustration with what bey called 
the increasing difficulty of open debate in 
an American society so taken up with 
according the proper respect to the rights 
and culture of each ethnic group that open 
exchange sometimes collapses under the 
deadening weight of political correctness. 

“I don’t do blade art," said Saunders, 
who spends part of his time in Paris and 
has had successful shows at the small Ga- 
lerie Resche in the Latin Quarter. *Tmjust 
a black person who happens .to be a paint- 
er. Separation won’t work; us against them 
won’t work. What worries me is that no- 
body is being protective of the human 
quality of what we're all abouL" 

Saunders, a professor at the College <* 
Arts and Crafts, added: “Paris seemed like 
a good place to get these views aired." 

Crumpler echoed such thoughts, urging 
the conference to “unload some of these 
African-American questions, and spend 
less time worrying about all tins baggage 
we bring over here, and more time dunk- 
ing about our arL" But politics tended to 
dominate the discussi ons, leading Saar to 
lament that “the art aesthetic has not been 
brought out here much." 

Gates was delighted by what he called 

the freedom of the exchange. A moderator 
on one of panels, he suggested that some
