North Korea Bows 
To Deadline on 
UN Inspection of 
Its Nuclear Sites 

By David Sanger 

New York Times Service 

TOKYO — Just days before a deadline that 
would have heightened its confrontation with 
the West, North Korea on Tuesday reversed 
itself and told the International Atomic Energy 
Agency that it would permit a full inspection of 
its suspected nuclear rites. 


Agency that DPRK authorities accept the in- 
spection activities which have been requested 
by the IAEA in the seven declared nuclear 

The statement added: “The aim of the in- 
spection activities is to verify that nuclear mate- 
rial in these facilities has not been diverted 
since earlier inspections.” 

The surprise announcement came less than a 
week before the agency’s board of governors 
was preparing to declare that North Korea had 
defied inspections for so long that it could 
easily have diverted nuclear material to its sus- 
pected weapons project. That announcement 
would have sent toe issue to the United Nations 
Security Council, whore the imposition of eco- 
nomic sanctions had appeared increasingly 

“I think they realized that their chances tc 
the Security Council did not look very good,” 
said a U.S. official deeply involved in the nego- 
tiations with the North. “But this inspection 
wQl only set the baseline. It will not solve the 
fundamental questions. We still have a long 
way to go." 

After weeks of silence, two U.S. officials were 
to resume talks with North Korean officials at 
the UN. Congressman Ronald V. Ddlums. 
Democrat of California, is expected to meet 
Kim D Sung, the North Korean leader, in 
Pyongyang this week. 

If the North goes through with the agreement 
it made Tuesday, agency officials say it will 
take at least three weeks for the team of six or 
seven inspectors to complete their survey of the 
North's nuclear complex at Yongbyon and re- 
port-back to the agency’s headquarters in 'Vien-

. Both the UN arifitary commander in Saraje- 
vo, Sr Michael Rose of Britain, and the UN 
secretary-generaTs personal representative in 
the Balkans, Yasushi AJcasfe, have had exten- 
sive discussions with Admiral Boorda in recent 
days about this, the officials said. 

.. ■ ^We have no doubt that GaKral Rosehas no 
ddurims that control means simply people 

talks between the North and the United States 
over a broader series of inspections and North 
Korea’s return to tbe Nuclear Nonproliferation 
Treaty, in return for a package of economic and 
political incentives. 

Inspectors last visited the nuclear sites at 
Yongbyon, 100 kilometers (60 utiles) north of 
Pyongyang, last summer. Even then their access 
was sharply limited, and they have been barred 
from returning. 

Since early January, after it reached what 
appeared to be a significant agreement with the 
United Stales, North Korea has refused to go 
along with the inspection conditions set by toe 
nuclear agency. 

The North Korean government repeatedly 
denounced the agency -as a “lackey” of the 

United States, and refused to allow it into the 
two most vital sites: its main nuclear reactor 
and a fuel reprocessing plant, where nuclear 
waste can be transformed into plutonium. 

Then on Tuesday a North Korean diplomat 
based in Vienna, Yun Ho Jin. delivered a letter 
to the agency’s headquarters declaring that his 
government had simply accepted the agency’s 
explanations about why it must conduct a thor- 
ough inspection of all those rites, and replace 
batteries and film in surveillance cameras in- 
stalled a year ago. 

“There was no explanation,” said David 
Kyd, a spokesman for the agency. “They simply 
agreed to all of the measures. They seemed to 
want to keep the process moving.” 

Even after this inspection is complete, ex- 
perts caution, a host of questions win remain. 

The UN inspection is limited to sites that 
North Korea has declared as part of its nuclear 
facilities: it will net indude two suspected nu- 
clear waste dumps that the United States sus- 
pects could yield evidence of past production of 
plutonium. Tne North has refused to discuss a 
Special inspection” of those sites until the next 
step of negotiations with the United States. 

Moreover, inspectors almost certainly will 
not solve tbe most vexing question, whether or 
not North Korea already has a bomb. 

“If the intelligence agencies are right and 
they have built one or two, they are certainly 
not at Yongbyon,” one senior U.S. intelligence 
official said. 

Officials inside and outside the atomic ener- 
gy agency speculated that the North Korean 
announcement was timed to circumvent any 
taik of sanctions at next week’s meeting. 

The director-general of the agency. Hans 
Blix, had been preparing to declare that the 
North had broken the “continuity” of inspec- 
tions, language that would have forced the 
Security Council to take up the issue. 

Such a move may yet be necessary. Within 
the United States government — and among 
the Pacific allies — many officials have argued 
that North Korea was simply buying time. They 
believe this inspection may just be another step 
in that process. 

On the other band, Mr. Kim may have decid- 
ed that the economic opportunity of opening up 
was too pea: to pass up. With the North s 
economy in shambles — its gross national 
product has declined four years in a row — 
some believe he needs investment and opportu- 
nity more than he wants a nuclear bomb. 

Assuming the inspection takes place without 
problems, the United Stales then will begin 
uying to cajole the North into allowing special 
inspections and into implementing its deal with 
South Korea to denuclearize the Korean penin- 
sula. The United States has already said it 
would offer a “negative security assurance” of 
no first use of nuclear weapons. Bat it is still' 
unclear if the North would agree in return to an 
inspection so rigorous that it would crimp its

RANGOON — Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, the 
Nobel Peace Prize winner and leader of the 
Burmese democracy movement who has beat 
under house arrest here for more than four 
years, has told visitors that while she was ready 
to negotiate with her jailers, she would never 
leave her homeland. 

“The concept of driving somebody out of 
their own country is totally unacceptable to 
me,” Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, 48, said in a 
calm, resolute voice that betrayed none of the 
suffering of her isolation. “They have tried to 
pressure me to leave the country in ways that no 
self-respecting government should try.” 

' Her prison has been her family home, a 
j umbling tateridu compound. The delegation 
that came to her door Monday, led by a U.S. 
congressman, was the fust group of visitors the 
government has allowed her to receive apart 
from her family and her doctors. 

She won the Nobel prize in 1991 for her 
nonviolent campaign to bring democracy to her 

“Whatever they do to me, that's between 

them and me; 1 can take it.” she told the 
delegation. “What's more important is what 
they are doing to the country.” 

She was allowed to speak with the visitors for 
three hours Monday under an agreement with 
the mili tary government. 

Her party, the National League for Democ- 
racy, won a landslide victory in the May 1990 
general election while she was detained. The 
military government refused to recognize the 
results and arrested most of the party's leaders 
under a law intended to protect the nation from 
toe “dangers from subversive dements.” She 
has never been on trial. 

The government, which evidently feels that 
her release could reignile the democracy move- 
ment, has insisted that she can go free if she 
leaves the country immediately, but she said 
Monday, “That is never going to happen.”

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi would remain under

W ash in g t on Pea Semin 

HELSINKI — Yuri Deryabin, the Russian ambassador in 
Finland, smiles warmly as he greets a visitor to his embassy’s 
ornate conference room. Cookies and coffee are offered, along 
frith email talk. Slim and avuncular, Mr. Deryabin seems soft- 
spoken, gracious, even deferential: 

So why are so many Finns furious with him? And why have a 
few zealots threatened to kiU hnn? 

The fmrnerifirte answer Tie*: in a strange dipiomatic-inddent 
that sti rred up Finnish news organizations last month. A 
confidential note from Mr. Deryabin to the Finnish Foreign 
Ministry was disclosed to the press, resulting in front-page 
headlines. Critics accused Mr. Deryabin of reriving Soviet- 
style rszerferec'ce in. Finnish politics. The outcry went on for 

The passions surrounding the affair are rooted in the history 
of two neighbors separated by a 1.300- kilometer (800>mile) 
border, as well as cultural differences and mutual suspicions. 
.At-the core is the strange story of a bit player in the Cold War 
dmm^llteih^terioas u Mr. Komissarov.” 

. Mr. Deryabin, now 62, arrived in Helsinki as a diplomat in 


1968, a 15-year veteran of the Soviet foreign service. With his 
straightforward manner and passable Finnish, English and 
Swedish, he soon developed a reputation as an intelligent and 

able professional 

At tbe lime. Russian-Fhmisb relations were a durable fixture 
of the Cold War. Defeated by the Soviet Union in World War 
II and nervous about the Kremlin's appetite for territory and 
influence, Finland's 5 mini on inhabitants could hardly afford 
the luxury of confronting their 250 million Soviet neighbors.^ 

Under a policy biown in the West as “Fmlandizalion," 
Helsinki kept quiet about Soviet policy and ten its distance 
from Western security and economic blocs, such as the North 
Atlantic Treaty Organization, But while Finland maintained 
official neutrality, it also set about developing one of the 
world’s most robust and smoothly working capitalist econo- 

The downside was that from time w time Roland had to 
swallow its pride and kowtow to Moscow'. 

Mr. Deryabin arrived at the Soviet Embassy in 1968 deter- 
mined to maintain “Finlandizatioti" — and perhaps improve 
on it He was convinced that beyond the bland commumqufa 
of diplomacy, Finns should know how the Kremlin viewed 
events in Finland. 

He began to write books and scores of articles under the pen 
nam e “Yuri Komissarov." A few Finnish diplomats guessed 
that “Komissarov" might be Mr. Deryabin, but author’s iden- 
tity remained a mystery. Mr. Deryabin now acknowledges, a 
little sheepishly, that Komissarov is his wife's maiden name. 

In these writings, “Komissarov" gave Moscow’s line more 
frankly than any diplomat could. Tbe subtext was: Don’t step 
out of line, don't make friends with tbe West, don’t harbor any 
tilusions that you will ever slip from Moscow’s sphere of 

Through the 1970s and early 1980s. during 10 years in 
Helsinki. Mr. Deryabin cranked out the “Komissarov” arti- 
cles. After Mikhail S. Gorbachev came to power in 1985. Mr. 
Deryabin was recalled to Moscow. 

After the collapse of tbe Soviet Union in 1991, Mr. Deryabin 
returned to Finland in 1992, this time as Russia’s ambassador. 
He got a chilly reception. His identity now known, Mr. 
Deryabin’s appointment was greeted by many Finns as the 
return of “Komissarov," 

Mindful of his hosts' worries, the ambassador launched a 
diplomatic offensive. He went to church. He kissed icons. He

{ Poetry or Prozac? Blues Therapy Turns a Page 

By Barry James 

fniemeriowl Herald Tribune 

If along the cool sequestered vale of life you wish to dwell, 
take up poetry and let the Prozac go to helL . . . 

The suggestion that Gray’s Elegy can do you more good 
than the little green-and-cream capsule comes from a doctor 
at Bristol University in England. 

In a forthcoming study, Dl Robin Philipp, the universi- 
ty’s senior lecturer in public health and social medicine, says 
that reading or writing a few lines of poetry can dispense 
with the need for tranquilizers and anti-depressants in many 

Dr. Philipp, a poet himself, was not around Tuesday to 
defend his thesis. He was traveling in New Zealand, leaving 
his research findings locked in a closet, a university spokes- 
man said. 

But colleagues said Dr. Philipp likes to prescribe Words- 
worth ("Ne’er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!”) or Keats 
f "Poesy . . . should be a friend to soothe the cares, and lift the 
thoughts of man") and Browning ("God's in his heaven — 
All’s right with the world”). 

That poetry can systematically have a beneficial effect on 
depressed patients “hasn’t been proved. I’m sure,” said Dr. 
Steven Hirsch, professor of history at the University of 

London and an expert in community and social psychiatry. 
“Bui there are many things in life that can soothe people." 

e peopii 

“There is, of course, the art and music therapies, which are 
used in psychiatry ” be said. “Both music and art are used to 
encourage communication, as a medium for the patients’ 
self-expression and as a way of accessing common experi- 

ence." Although ne acknowledged that poetry might have a 
role in treating depression, Dr. Hirsch said. "I wouldn't 
necessarily advise people to stop their anti-depressants and 
read Wordsworth." 

It has always been known that poetry can have a powerful 
and mysterious effect on the mind. Plato wanted to ban it 
from his Republic because of its power to move people. A 
17th-century essayist said that it was no wonder that such 
force should be found in poetry, “since in it are assembled all 
the powers of Eloquence, of Mustek, and of Picture, which 
are all allowed to make so strong Impressions upon humane 

Alexander Macara, chairman of the governing council of 
the British Medical Association, said the idea that poetry 
might replace Prozac was potentially bad news for the 
pharmaceutical industry, but made a lot of sense for pa- 

“I would have thought poetry is infinitely superior to any 
tablets," he said “Just like music, it is therapeutic." 

If there is any solid basts to the Bristol study, the cash- 
strapped National Health Service may well soon be encour- 
aging physicians to prescribe Wordsworth rather than fluox- 
etine hydrochloride, which is Prozac by its scientific name. 
Only this week, the Association of the British Pharmaceuti- 
cal Industry complained that the NHS prevents doctms 
from prescribing some modem drugs because they are too 

Although the government denies this is so, the NHS is 
making economies wherever it can. Anti-depressant drugs 

and tranquilizers alone cost the taxpayer more than £80 
million each year. 

The Reverend John Navone, a Jesuit professor at the 
Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, who has just 
written a book about beauty, said the idea that poetry can be 
pgwj to treat depression end anxiety is an extension of the 
principle that any kind of beauty- is gpod for you. 

“Beauty is always enjoyable,” he said. "Whenever you are 
enjoying something, it's a dimension of beauty that is im- 
pacting cm you, whether it is scenery, music or poetry. Once 
you lose your capacity for beauty, you lose your capacity for 

Does anti-depressant verse necessarily have to be optimis- 
tic or tranquil? Possibly not, if Murid Spark’s observation 
about the effect of weather on depression holds good to 
poetry as wed She noted that fine weather “lays a heavier 
wdghl on the mind and hearts of the depressed and the 
inwardly tormented" than a really bad day. And Robert 
Frost once said that poetry should not be an escape, but “a 
way of taking life by the throat." 

Asked if he could recommend any poets to combat mild 
depression, Father Navone also mentioned Browning and 
Keats, but added a fellow Jesuit, Gerard Manley Hopkins 
(“And I have asked to be/ Where no storms corned Where 
the green swell is in the havens dumb,/ And out of the swing 
of the sea"). 

But what about the poets themselves? Was poetry enough 
for them? To judge from three examples, it was not enough 
for Baudelaire (opium and hashish), Coleridge (opium) or 
Poe (alcohol).

Yeltsin Demands Bosnia Voice 

As Major Arrives, Russia Insists on a Role 

By Margaret Shapiro

MOSCOW — With (be dock 
ticking on a NATO ultimatum for 
Bosnian Serb forces to end their 
siege of Sanyevo, President Boris 
N. Yeltsin bluntly warned the West 
on Tuesday against trying to solve 
the conflict in Bosnia without Rus- 

“Some people are trying to re-

the participation of Russia," said 
Mr. Yeltsin. “I want to emphasize 
that it will not succeed. We will not 
allow this. " 

Mr. Yeltsin’s warning, issued af- 
ter the start of a two-day meeting 
with Prune Minister John Major of 
Britain, reflected concern here that 
NATO win make good on its threat 
to bomb Bosnian Serbian positions 
unless the Serbs give up their heavy 
weapons or withdraw them beyond 
a 20- kilometer radius of Sarajevo 
by Feb. 21. 

Mr. Yeltsin, looking weary be- 
cause of what aides said was a 
weeklong bout with the flu, said 
Rnssrn was willing to “actively par- 
ticipate in negotiations so that the 
war in Yugoslavia can be brought 
to an end by peaceful means.” He 
left the door open for a possible 

military response by NATO in the 
event of an attack on UN forces. 

“If there is an attack on UN 
forces,” be said, “it must be pun- 

British diplomats involved with 
the Yeltsin-Major meeting said 
Tuesday evening that the Russians 
seemed irritated at not having been 
consulted in advance about the 
NATO ultimatum. The diplomats 
also said that the Russians ap- 
peared to be undecided as to how 
to respond to any NATO bom- 
bardment of the Bosnian Serbs. 

The Russians have strong histor- 
ic, ethnic and religious ties to the 
Serbs and have tended to see them 
as the injured party in the conflict. 
Russian leaders across the political 
spectrum have denounced the 
NATO ultimatum and have 
warned that the use of force against 
the Serbs would damage the dose 
diplomatic relationship that Russia 
and the West have buQt up since 
the collapse of the Soviet Union 
two years ago. 

Ultranatioualist forces, whose 
successes in the December parlia- 
mentary election were based in part 
on an aggressively anti-West out- 
look, have been leading the drum- 
beat on the issue, providing Mr. 

Yeltsin with little room to political 

Vladimir V. Zhirinovksy, the ul- 
tranadonalisl leader who, during a 
recent trip to Bosnia, promised the 
Serbs that Russia would back 
them, has said be will recruit Rus- 
sian fighters to send to Sarajevo if 
NATO presses forward with its ul- 

Mr. Mayor sought to reassure the 
Russians that the West was eager to 
have Russia’s participation in deal- 
ing with the Bosnia conflict 

“We very much want Russia to 
use its political influence towards a 
settlement" Mr. Major said at the 
Kremlin. The United States and 
Europe, he said, “certainly want 
Russia involved in that" 

He said that the Serbs appeared 
to be responding to the ultimatum 
by turning in weapons and that it 
was possible that NATO air strikes 
would not be needed. 

“Everyone hopes it won’t be nec- 
essary and that there will be no 
need for military action, but we 
cannot yet be certain of that," be 
said. “Heavy weapons are increas- 

ingly under control. We hope that

Ethnic Tensions Threaten Kazakhstan’s High - Wire Stability

ALMA-ATA, Kazakhstan — 
Raisa Kosyaninko was boro in this 
mountain-ringed city 31 yean ago, 
and here she hopes to live out her 
days when she retires as a secre- 

tary- typist. 
eL Mrs. 

YeL Mis. Kosyamnko, an ethnic 
Russian who married an ethnic 
Ukrainian, feds very much at sea in 
what has become in many ways an 
ethnic Kazakh state. Like many of 
the other non-Kazakhs who form a 
majority in this new country, she 
worries that opportunities for her 
children and grandchildren will be 
shakily constrained. 

“If "\ were younger, Td leave 
now." Mrs. Kosyaninko said. “But 
1 have nowhere to go, and it’s hard 
to start all over a gain at my age."

lie wi to a brighter future than most 

Straddling Europe and Asia, 
with huge oQ and mineral reserves 
beneath its million square mDes of 
territory, Kazakhstan has been an 
island of stability in the past two 
years, steeringa course between the 
authoritarianism of some Central 
Asian neighbors to toe south and 
the freewheeling disarray of Russia 
to toe north. The largest former 
Soviet republic after Russia, it has 
eagerly sought Western advice and 
investment, and Mr. Nazarbayev 
was looking to more this week. 

But in this snowbound capital it 
is easy to see that toe stability has 
fragile underpinnings. Kazakh- 
stan’s economy is in a taUspin. Fuel 
is scarce, miners and farmers have 
not been paid, factories are idle, 
and many apartment dwellers are 
without beat or hot water. Relative- 
ly underdeveloped, Kazakhstan re- 
mains vulnerably dependent on 
Russia. Elections for toe country’s 
first parliament are scheduled for 
March 7, and there are concerns 
about how democratic they will be. 

And with nationalists in Russia 
focusing attention on Russian- 

speakers beyond their borders, 
many here say they fear strife be- 
tween Kazakhs and Russians could 
wipe out this young nation’s hopes. 

“There’s just no question that 
ethnic tensions have been increas- 
ing.” said John Ritchotte. field rep- 
resentative here for the National 
Democratic Institute. “You bear a 
lot of people talking about the pos- 
sibility of civil war.” 

Kazakhstan’s government and 
semiofficial press hammer away at 
the need for tolerance and under- 
standing. A front-page headline de- 
clared recently in Kazakhstanskaya 
Pravda: “Interethnic Concord 
Among the Peoples of Kazakhstan 
Is More Important Than Any- 

But the ethnic question will not 
be easily solved because both sides 
now view themselves as victims: 
the Kazakhs, of centuries of Rus- 
sian and Soviet colonialism; and 
the Russians, of unaccustomed Ka- 
zakh assertiveness. 

With both sides on the lookout 
for slights and wrongs, the nation- 
ality issue colors virtually every 
choice that this nation faces, from 

bow to privatize the economy to 
what language to speak in parlia- 
ment to whose history to teach in 

Moreover, the internal tensions 
are inseparable from Kazakhstan’s 
rocky efforts to establish mutually 
respectful relations with Russia. 
Russian readers, from President Bo- 
ris N. Yeltsin down, have claimed a 
status of “firs: among equat" in the 
former Soviet Union and a right to 
represent the 25 mflSon Rusrian- 
speakos “stranded" outside Russia 
when toe union collapsed. 

Kazakhstan says it can look after 
the interests of ethnic Rusrians 
within its borders. Ftihtidaas here 
argue that as long as Rusria pro- 

motes separatist sentiment among 
Russians near the two states’ long 
common border, suspicion of Ka- 
zakhstan Russians* loyalty can only 

Mr. Nazarbayev, who speaks 
constantly of a need for ethnic 
peace, knows that his nation’s fu- 
ture depends on its ability to keep 
such tensions from boiling over. 

Yet, a recent U.S. State Depart- 
ment report on human rights dted 
“increasing discrimination in favor 
of ethnic Kazakhs in government 
and state-controlled enterprises." 
with similar trends in education, 
boosing and other areas. Ethnic 
Kazakhs, whose Asian features dis- 
tinguish them from toe Slavic Rus- 

sians, increasingly d ominate offi- 
cial positions. 

The campaign for the March 7 
elections has been marked by less 
anger, less extremism and, some 
critics charge, a bit less democracy 
than Russia’s recent election. 

While Kazakhstan’s political 
system is far more open man Uz- 
bekistan’s or Tnrxmenistan’s, 
where framer Communist bosses 
keep a lid cm dissent, it is undav 
stood that direct criticism of Mr. 
Nazarbayev is not acceptable. And 
toe president, through his appoint- 
ment of county executives and his 
leadership of the mam political 
party, has so far steered the oountty 
in the directions he chooses.

Waskxpvn Post Service 

WASHINGTON — The Gin ton 
administration and Haiti's deposed 
president, toe Reverend Jean- Ber- 
trand .Aristide, have come to the 
brink of open confrontation, with 
Father Aristide balking at a U.S.- 
backed plan for restoring Haitian 
democracy and insisting instead 
that the United Nations impose 
tough new sanctions against Haiti's 
m3: tar.- rmers. 

The dash surfaced over the 

weekend when a group of Haitian 
political leaders, encouraged by 
UB. officials, tried to present Fa- 
ther Aristide with a new formula 
to appointing a civilian govern- 
ment that would seek to induce 
Haiti's military chief. Lieutenant 
General Raoul Cedras, and other 
commanders to surrender power. 

The plan got an icy reception 
from Father Aristide, who was de- 
posed September 1991. He refused 
to meet or take phone calls from 
the Haitian politicians or other 

backers of toe plan such as toe 
UN’s special envoy for Haiti, Dan- 
te Caputo. the special UJS. negotia- 
tor working with Mr. Capulo, Law- 
rence Femdlo, and toe Canadian 
external affairs mmuner. Audit 

The reaction by Father Aristide 
prompted new critidsm from U.S. 
officials, who have been angry with 
him since his denouncement last 
week of President Bill Clinton’s 
policy of forcibly repatriating Hai- 
tian refugees caught at sea. Mr. 

Caputo indicated at. the United 
Nations that he was angered by 
Father Aristide’s refusal to accept 
his calls. . 

The plan is . a variation of an 
agreement betwem Father Aristide 
and the Haitian twfitaiy naefaed in 

July on Governor's Island in New 
York City. That accord was abort- 
ed when G eneral CAfray reneged

In ToUhook’s Slipstream, Navy’s Top Admiral Retires 

■ Complied by Our Staff fnpm Dispachet 

WASHINGTON — Admiral Frank Kelso 2d, the 
U.S. Navy's highest ranking officer, said Tuesday be 
had requested early retirement so that the navy “can 
finally close this difficult chapter” of the Tailbook sex 

At a news conference in his Pentagon office. Admi- 
ral Kelso said he would retire April 30. two months 
earlier than scheduled, because he believed that the 
issues associated with Tailbook were resolved and that 
Pentagon leaders had backed his integrity and 

Speaking in a room filled with reporters and televi- 
sion cameras, the admiral said: “As the chief of naval 
operations, I had a responsibility to lead the navy 
tn rongh the process of changing the climate which 
allowed this incident to occur. Having done so it is my 
intention to submit ray request for reciremem as of 30 
April 1994” 

Admiral Kelso said be took the step on his own and 

had not been asked to resign by Defense Secretary 
William J. Perry and Secretary of the Navy John H. 

“1 became the lightning rod for Tailhook," Admiral 
Kelso said. 

The announcement came a day after the four-star 
admiral opened a public campaign to rebut a navy 
judge's finding last week that Admiral Kelso had 
known about sexual misdeeds at the 1991 Tailhook 
aviators' convention and had interfered with the inves- 
tigation of the scandal. 

Pentagon officials, speaking on condition of ano- 
nymity, said a likely replacement as chief of naval 
operations would be Admiral Jeremy M. Boorda. the 
North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s southern flank 
commande. who is now in charge of the alliance's 
preparations for a possible bombing campaign in 
Yugoslavia. .Also frequently mentioned is Charles R. 
Larson, commander of the Pacific command. 

In a statement issued at the Pentagon. Defense 

Secretary Perry said. “I regard Admiral Kelso as a 
man of the highest integrity and honor” Mr. Perry said 
the Defense Department's inspector-general “found 
no credible evidence" that Admiral Kelso had specific 
know ledge of the sexual misconduct at the 1991 avia- 
tors', convention and found “no evidence” that he had 
sought to thwart the investigation. 

Navy Secretary Dalton also issued a statement, 
saying. “I have never questioned the personal integrity 
and honor of Frank xelso.” It is "imponan! that we 
put the bitterness of Tailhook behind us. H Mr. Dalton 
said. “The time for healing is now.” 

Admiral Kelso’s retirement was prompted by a 
judicial decision issued last week in Norfolx. Virginia, 
by a navy judge who faulted Admiral Kelso for inter- 
fering in the investigation and contended the admiral 
had witnessed untoward conduct at the Tailhook 

The convention of the Tailhook Association, a 
booster organization of U.S. Navy and Marine Corps 

aviators, produced a scandal when dozens of women, 
including female officers, alleged they were molested 
during a night of drunken debauchery in a Las Vegas 
hotel hallway. 

Admiral Kelso authorized the navy on Monday to 
release written statements by colleagues and support- 
ers disputing the judge's findings. 

The documents appear to have been hastily assem- 
bled last Thursday and Friday following a Feb. 8 
assertion by the navy judge. Captain William T. Vest 
Jr., accusing Admiral Kelso of covering up his knowl- 
edge of the misconduct at the Tailhook convention. 

Included is a memo dated last Friday from the 
senior Tailhook investigator saving that Captain Vest 
failed to back up his charges. 

Earlier, the independent Navy Times newspaper 
called on Admiral Kelso to resign, saying: “The bot- 
tom line in the case is an issue of responsibility and 
accountability. And on that front. Admiral Kelso has 
no defense." (AP.WP) 

Los Angeles, Hard-Hit by Quake, Drops Bid for ’96 Political Conventions 

. By James Rainey 

.... •„ ior Angela Tima Service 

LOS ANGELES — Los Angles will drop its 
campaign to play host to the 1996 Democratic and 
Republican national conventions because the city 
cannot afford to stage them in the wake of Iasi 
month’s earthquake, Mayor Richard Riordan an- 

Mayor Riordan said he was disappointed but that 
be had to terminate the city’s bids because of the 

substantial public investment that is required. 

A committee lobbying for the Democratic con- 
clave in 1996 had estimated it would cost at least 
S2Z5 million to cooven the Los Angeles Convention 
Center into an arena and to provide bousing and 
office space. 

The city has not yet calculated the cost of holding 
the Republican convention, but even pre limin ary 
estimates made either event too expensive for a city 
that faces a $150 million deficit, and the potential 

loss of more than S66 million in tax revenue from 
businesses damaged in the Jan. 17 earthquake. 

“Given our fiscal priority for the recovery of all of 
Los Angeles and for making our city safe, we cannot 
guarantee millions of public dollars” for the conven- 
tions. Mr. Riordan said Monday. 

Both the mayor and other civic boosters had said 
that hosting one, or both, of the conventions would 
be a psychological boost for a city riven in the Iasi 
two years by recession, fires and earthquakes. 

Los Angeles had been considered a front-runner 
for the Democratic Convention. 

The deadline for bids for the Democratic conclave

Some Doctors Accused 

t , 

By Elisabeth Rosenthal 

New York TSmes Service '- 

NEW YORK — A small but 
growing number of doctors, angry 
with the federal limits on what they 
can charge for treating dderiy pa- 
tients, are finding ways to 
around the Medicare rates by hav- 
ing patients pay extra fees, doctors, 
patients and officials said. 

The practice, which usually in- 
Yoives aoctors’ asking their eldedy 
patients to sign contracts that re- 
sult in added oul-erf-pocket pay- 

a^CTOKnt and from Advocates 
for the dderiy. And Medicare offi- 
cials have written to some doctors 
warning them that taking excess 
payment under contract leaves 
tVtn open to prosecution, fines 
and sanctions. 

Some of thcse contracts stipulate 
that the patient will forgo Medicare 
coverage for a particular visit and 
pay out of pocket a fee set by the 
doctor. Others, hold the patient fi- 
nanciafly responsible for future ser- 
vices that Medicare deans unnec- 
essary and refuses to cover. Sou 
others require patients to pay sepa- 
rately for services, such as phone 
consultations, that Medicare con- 
siders part of the standard fee for 
office visits. 

Doctors said that u a time when 
Medicare was covering fewer ser- 
vices and when reimbursement 
rates often ran only 75 percent or 

fcss'of their standard charges, pri- 
vate-arrangements were the only 
wot, they could afford to treat the 
ehkriy. The-y note that other doc- 
tors have dealt with the issue by 
refusing to see Medicare patients 
entirely. . > . ’ 

Sit some advocates far the el- 
derly said the contracts and waivers 
were a thinly veiled scheme lo get 
mote money for dobtors and to

these contracts skirted the intent of

Japan Sets 

T~ae Associated Press 

TOKYO — Even though Japan's 
defense spending next fiscal year 
will show the smallest increase in 
34 years, analysts said Tuesday its 
military buildup will grow steadily. 

The cabinet of Prime Minister 
Morihiro Hosokawa on Tuesday 
approved 4.6$ trillion yen ($45 bil- 
lion) in defense outlays for fiscal 
1994. up 0.9 percent from the cur- 
rent fiscal year. 

it will be the smallest annual 
growth in Japan's defense spending 
since 1 959-1960, when it rose by 0.6 
percent said a Defense Agency 
spokesman. Takahiro Goto. 

Following the end of the Cold 
War. Japan's defense spending has 
grown slowly since 1990, but the 
nation has steadily improved its 
capabilities, analysts say. 

Haruo FujiL a defense analyst 
said that white the proposed de- 
fense budget increase seems small, 
the high-tech shopping list reflect- 
ed a military buildup commensu- 
rate with a top economic power. 

“The aim of Japan's defense 
buildup is to cope with regional 
conflicts on its own, like the United 
Slates," Mr. Fujii said. 

In fiscal 1994, Japan will pur- 
chase two more AW ACS military 
aircraft from the United States for 
about 1 14 billion yen. 

Other major shopping items 
from the United Slates will include 
20 type-90 tanks and nine multiple- 
launch rocket systems. 

Russians Move to Stop Dumping Nuclear Waste at Sea

VLADIVOSTOK, Russia — Regional au-

Mr. Kolmogorov, the regional administra-

als who have imprisoned her, both for their 
deceit and for their brutality to democracy 
movement members. 

“It must be very exhausting for than to go on 
lying," she said. “Elections were promised, elec- 
tions were held," and yet the military held onto 
power despite its defeat at the polls, she said. 
“The people feel cheated." 

But sbe also spoke of her jailers with patience 
and tolerance. 

“I personally have nothing but good will 
toward the army, even though there are some 
things that I don’t like,” she said. “I do have 
good will toward them, perhaps because I think 
of them subjectively as my father's army, per- 
haps for other reasons." Her father was U Aung 
San. Burma's independence leader and its prin- 
cipal national hero. 

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi said she believed 
that the government's decision to allow her to 
speak publicly must be considered a hopeful 
sign. “It is significant," she acknowledged. 
“What sort of good it win do, I don’t know." 

Sbe said that the government was “unpre- 
dictable" and that officials had probably 
agreed to the meeting Monday only because 
“they were under a lot of international pres- 

Foreign diplomats say that the government is 
hoping to improve its abysmal human rights 
image abroad as it seeks new international aid 
and foreign investment - 

They say the government urged Daw Aung 
San Suu Kyi to meet with Representative Wil- 
liam B. Richardson. Democrat of New Mexico 
and a member of tbc House Intelligence Com- 

Mr. Richardson, who has been active on 
human rights issues, requested the meeting in 

August when he met here with Mayor General 
Kiuo Nyunt, the head of military mtefligeaceL 

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi agreed to the session 
on condition thaL Mr. Richardson be accompa- 
nied by a United Nations official and by a 
reporter from The New York Times. 

Jehan Raheem, the representative in Burma 
of the UN Development Program, attended. 
The US- Embassy in Rangoon was allowed to 
send a diplomat to take notes on the session. 

Mr. Richardson met twice Monday with 
General Khin Nyunt, who is identified by dip- 
lomats as the new strongman, to urge him to 
open negotiations with Daw Aung San Suu 

“I believe a process of possible talks has been 
started," Mr. Richardson said. 

Dressed in the traditional Burmese blouse 
and longfri, or sarong, with her hair paBed back 
in a bun. Daw Aung San Suu Kyi seemed very 
thin but otherwise in good health and even, 
better humor. 

She was eloquent at times, her remarks ac- 
companied by a piercing gaze and often by a 
determined smile. Her 'words are frequently 
laced with gentle laughter. 

“You must crane to leant Burmese prommei- 
aiion from me,” she explained playfully after 
one of her visitors mangled a Burmese name. 

While the Burmese say her command of the 
national language is exquisite, her English is 
excellent and she speaks in the frill round sen- 
tences that are the legacy of h«r university 
studies at Oxford. ■*., 

She said that in her years of incarceratiod'in- 
her decaying, termite-ridden home, idle had 
never once left the confound. • . - 

What she teams of the outside worid, sb& 
said, comes from occasional visits she is pcraHt-

scholar at Oxford — and their two sons. Her

She said it was from a BBC broadcast that 
she learned she had won the Nobel prize in

gratitude,” she said of the award. “I was very

ment for democracy will receive a lot more 

While ' sbe said repeatedly that the would 
refuse to leave Burma under any conditions, she 
suggested that all other topics might be open to 
ne g o tiatio n. “There is nothing else that I’ve 
refused to talk about except the question of 
leaving the oountry." sbe said, “rve refused 
nothing else.” 

The military may now be reconsidering that 
demand in ligpt of its need for foreign aid and 

■- Asked whether sbe would consider a propos- 
al from the army to relinquish her political roie 

in exchange for her right to stay in Burma, she 
rcpBed. ’They must talk to me, but it will 
dejpeod on wlial they mean and the guarantees 

they offer." 

Wide she was wiUipg to discusa the details of 
her years in detention, she repeatedly tried to 
tarn the conversation awayfrom her own plight 
and to her concern over her imprisoned sup- 
porters and to the larger quest for democracy. 

“Tm not interested in tiny sort of personality

Looking for a Cheap Ticket Into Space? 

By Lawrence ML Fisher 
New York Tuna Service 
LIVERMORE. California — 
Four times in recent weeks the coy- 
otes, vultures and squirrels that in- 
habit the desolate Allamoal HBIs 
here have had their tranquility rup- 
tured by a 150-foot cannon blast- 
ing a jet-engined projectile into a 
nearby hillside. 

For scientists in the rarefied 
realms of light gas guns and scram- 
jets, the test shots at Lawrence Liv- 
ermore National Laboratory’s re- 
mote Site 300 have been break- 
throughs. They say the tests show 
that a large gun could be used to 
send large objects into space at far 
lower costs than today's rocket and 
shuttle technology. Such an ap- 
proach was first hypothesized oy 
Jules Verne in his 1865 novels, 
“From the Earth to the Moon” and 
"A Trip Around It" 

The tests are also a validation of 
the scramjel principle and mark the 
first time in history that an air- 
breathing jet engine has flown at

A scramjei is a supersonic version 

of a ramjet, which combines fuel 
with compressed air, generated by 
high-speed flight, and bums the 
mixture at subsonic speeds. 

In theory, saomjets can be much 
more efficient than rocket engines 
because they do not need to carry 
oxygen, which is two-thirds of the 
weight of a rocket. A light gas gun 
could be used to loft satellites or 
space station components io a very 
mgh altitude. A scrangct would 
add velocity and bring ihe object to 
the edge of space. Once beyond the 
earth's atmosphere a small rocket 
engine would come into play, tak- 
ing it to a stable orbit 

“I want to bring the cost ot ac- 
cess to space down." said Dr. John 
W. Hunter, project director for Liv- 
ermore's Super High Altitude Re- 
search Project, or SHARP, two- 
stage light gas gun. “It's currently 
about the cost of gold." Dr. Hunter 
projects that gun bunches could 
reduce the cost of delivering pay- 
loads to low-earth orbit to 5500 per 
kilogram (2.2 pounds). Shuttle 
launches cost about 520,000 per 
kilogram of payload. 

The Livermore gun fires a snail 
scramjct, developed by Rockwell 
International in Seal Beach, Cali- 
fornia, sending the Il-pound pro- 
jectile to a velocity of about 9,000 
miles an hour (about 14300 kilo- 
meters an hour). The gun bums 
methane and air in the combustion 
section of its pump tube, which 
drives a one-ton piston that com- 

presses hydrogen, . which acceler- 
ates the scramjct down the 150-foot 
.launch tube. - 
Leaving the gun in a stupendous 
eruption of flame, the jet rEes just 
75 feel, diantqgnuing In the tnB- 
side. But that is enough fra high- 
speed cameras and sensors to gath- 

research has been hampered by the 
inability of wind tunnels to simu- 
late the necessary cooditioQS. 

“Because we’ve been limited in 
wind tunnels, we’ve used comput- 
ers to simulate the physics," said 
Dr. Kevin Bowcntt, scramjet pro- 
ject leader at RodrodL “One of 
our goals here is to see bow accu- 
rate those programs are.” 

Tbc Livoroore launches have at- 
tained speeds of Mach &2. Previ- 
ously. toe highest speed attained in 
scnnqct tests was Mach 55, uo- 
comptisbcd m 1992 by Russian re- 
searchers who flew a scramjct 
mounted atop a booster rocket 
Flying the small, g^m4aanched 
scramjct in the higb-denfflty air at 
sea level simulates conditions faced 

S r a full-scale vehicle at a high 
titude, but at far loner expense 
and risk. 

“What he's done is fairly incredi- 
ble,’' said Robert D, Whcofslti, an 
aerospace engineer who has spe- 
rialized in sexamjets at the Nation- 
al Aeronautics and Spaoe Adminis- 
tration's Langley Research Cento- 
in Hampton, Vir ginia, ref erring to 
Dr. Hunter. “In these days of peo- 
ple doing studies and wri tin g pa- 

pers, he’s actually done it. Five 

years ago people laughed at him." 

Although toe Iivmnorc gun is 
the largest of its kind in the world, 
it is not large enough to laimch 
meaningful payloads, and its de- 
sign cannot be seated up to do so 
using current materials technology. 

Dr. Himler-is seeking funding 
far a second-generation gun of his 
own. which he caRs the Jules Verne 
Launcher. “So far I haven’t been 
maiketing this dung to the best ot 
my abilities because Tve been mak- 
ing sure it doesn't blow up,” he 
sazdl “Next fiscal year, there’s a 
good daance well get the money to 
do some of this work."

Rose, as tactical commander on the ground,* wffl have

Technical derails were .worked out in a meeting in 
: -Zagreb,- Croatia, on . Sunday between General Rose, 
; UN officials and NATO commanders, including Ad- 
miral Jeremy M. Roorda. who heads (he U.S. Europe- 
an command. . 

The peace effort. General Rose said, is “backed bv 

• .the power of NATO’s air might.” 

”• He added:; “There is no discrepancy at all between 
what. ye are doing and the ultimatum. We are all 

* playing from the same sheet of music." 

The threat of NATO airsirikes. another officer said, 

; “is a tool a terrific tool*' adding. “If we can do 
Sarajevo, it's on to Zcaica and Tuzla." 

. - As the UN plan is evolving, the critical issue of the 
. Serbian gunners’ either withdrawing their heavy weap- 
ons in the hills surrounding the city or putting them 
.under UN being redefined. 

Control UN officers now say. may not necessarily 
- mean actually locking the weapons up in a guarded 
.compound, but may rather entail keeping them under 
elcc ironic surveillance, with the credible threat that 
they could be destroyed if fired. 

“Thseare other ways of controlling heavy weapons 
than physically putting them round with barbed wire," 
said Lieutenant Colonel Simon Shad bolt of the Royal 
Marines, who is an aide to General Rose. 

.So far. the number of weapons that have been 
tinned in has been “quite negligible,” General Jean 

Cot of France, the overall UN commander in Zagreb, 

One particular problem. Rose said, is that “Tito's 
defense plan called for Partisan action, so there is a 
great store of weapons in these hills." 

Marshal Tito, fearing a Soviet auatl after his break 
with Moscow in I<W8. established a kind of Swiss 
system of defense in the mountainous core of Yugosla- 
via. with weapons dumps that would enable the popu- 
lation to fight as guerrillas. Many of these weapons of 
the Serb-dominated regular Yugoslav army were 
handed over to the Bosnian Serb forces now besieging 

Much of the damage in Sarajevo has been inflicted 
by mortars, including the single shell that fell on the 
main market Feb. 5. killing 68 people and leading to 
the NATO ultimatum. 

Under present circumstances, a mortar could be 
hidden in the trunk of a car or in someone's home. 

General Rose, declaring thai he bad “no intention 
of searching every bam, cellar and bunker,” said that 
even if a mortar was bidden away, it was effectively 
withdrawn once it was taken from its firing position. 

“I couldn’t care.” he said when asked about hidden 
mortars. “I couldn't care less.” 

Sophisticated radar will be put in place to find the 
mortars if they should be brought out to fire, he said 

But because a mortar can be moved quickly, it could 

be difficult to determine who fired it and why, he said. 
He added that he was particularly worried about one 
side's slipping behind the lines of” the other and firing 
in hopes of bringing retaliation on the enemy. 

“I have a nasty mind." he said, in tones suggesting 
that this helped qualify him for service in the Balkans. 

Negotiations with both Serbian and Bosnian gov- 
ernment commanders were proceeding “step by step," 
General Rose said, adding that he wanted to establish 
weapons dumps eventually “in five locations, hopeful- 
ly with armed guards." This would depend, he said, on 
“confidence-building measures.” as “the biggest prob- 
lem is that these people really fear each other." 

A major concern was to get bigger weapons with- 
drawn from the 10-kilometer radius centering on the 
marketplace. Once they were gone, any movement 
back could be detected by aerial surveillance. 

“I want to restore electricity, collect the garbage, 
establish postal service, open up routes in and out of 
the city." General Rose said. “1 have a sense of fatigue 
among the people — they are drained of energy, 
drained of resolve. Both sides have run out of stocks 
and resources. The Muslims can’t conquer vast tracts 
of land with infantry alone: the Serbs can't conquer 
vast tracts with artillery alone.” 

"This war has reached what Clausewitz called the 
culminating point.” he said. “Should it be necessary to 
call in air strikes. I will do so without hesitation.”

the cancellation of the “Team Spir-

United Stiles and South Korea. 

It seemed the North was about to 
allow the inspectors to return. 

But the talks dragged on for

It accused the United States of 
seeking “a pretense for strangling”

BEIJING — More than forty 
policemen carried out a midnight 
raid in central China to detain sev- 
en foreign Christians, including 
three .Americans, and held them 
incommunicado for five days be- 
fore releasing them Tuesday, 
church sources said. 

The group's leader, the Reverend 
Dennis Balcombe. said that the po- 
lice in Henan Province held the 
seven Protestants and beat up a 
member of the group from Hong 
Kong, who was reported bruised 
but not seriously injured. 

Three Chinese Protestants de- 
tained with the group have not yet 
been released, he said. 

The raid appeared to be the first 
case in which the Chinese authori- 
ties have used recently issued na- 
tional regulations against religious 
groups and practices. 

The two sets of regulations, 
signed into law by Prime Minister 
Li Peng on Feh. 5. spell out details 
of earlier bans on foreigners ac- 
cused of proselytizing or dissemi- 
nating religious materials, and im- 
pose other limits on contacts 
between Chinese and overseas 

Mr. Balcombe said a Chinese po- 
lice officer told the group after the 
raid “This is the law we have in our 
hands, and we're determined to 
stamp out these so-called house 

Mr. Balcombe. 48, pastor of the 

Revival Christian Church in Hong 
Kong, has been traveling intermit- 
tently in China for about 20 years. 
He speaks both Mandarin Chinese 
and the Cantonese dialect. The raid 
last week is “the beginning of a new 
wave of persecution." he said. 

Western-based human rights 
monitors say the issue of religious 
freedom in China may loom larger 
in the debate now under way in 
Washington over China’s most-fa- 
vored-nation trading status. 

Mr. Balcombe said the police 
confiscated all of his group's pos- 
sessions. including some literature 
and his watch, a computer, a video 
camera and about S1000. 

A diplomat said the authorities 
were concerned about religious ra- 
dio broadcasts from Hong Kong 
and about Bibles and other reli- 
gious material brought into the 
country by overseas Chinese and 
foreigners. Some of those Chris- 
tians — both Catholic and Protes- 
tants — who have been arrested by 
the police have been sentenced to 
one to three years in “re-education 
through labor” camps. 

“This is not simply a matter of 
local or occasional harassment" 
said Mike JendrzejczyL Washing- 
ton representative of Asia Watch, a 
New York-based human rights or- 

“Church members are being 
fined,” he said. “If you don't come 
up with the fine, you're sentenced 
to re-education. This is the pattern 
in all of the provinces with laige 
Christian populations.”

Last May. Mr. Dervabin men- 
tioned the groups to Finnish For- 
eign Ministry officials. He said 
Russia was concerned that their 
activities violated ibe 1947 Treaty 
of Paris, which banned the resur- 
gence at fascist groups in Finland. 

Mr. Deryabin said he mentioned 
the issue more than once but got no 
reply from the Finns. One reason 
may be that Finnish diplomats re- 
gard the 47-year-old treaty as all 

but obsolete, while the Russians do 

Finally, on Jan. 10 this year. Mr. 
Deryabin wrote a forma! note to 
the Foreign Ministry “asking" if 
the groups did not violate the trea- 
ty. Someone leaked the note to Hel- 
singm Sanomat, the leading Finn- 
ish daily. The story ran Jan. 1 6. one 
day before presidential voting To 
many Finns, it was a replay of 1 961

The media exploded. Many saw 
a brutish attempt to influence the 
voting, although just how was un-

saw the note's timing as a crude 
effort to reassert Moscow's prerog-

won the war and who lost it 

Helsinki's official reply was a 
barely polite rebuff. Finland would 
evaluate the case of the two groups 
in light of Finnish law. not the 

The furor left Mr. Deryabin

general said on Monday that. “Any heavy 
weapons there will be either ... under UN 
control or subject of an air attack." 

Asked to define what he meant by “UN 
control," Mr. McCurry. according to Reuters, 
said: “UN control means that the UN Ins got 
those weapons, and they’ve got the weapons in 
a condition and under a status in which they 
can’t be toed to shell S&rajc\o. which is the 
purpose of the N ATO ultimatum."

SALONIKA, Greece — Thou- 
sands of Greeks marched on the 
U.S. Consulale here Tuesday and 
tore down plaques commemorating 
Americans to protest Washington’s 
recognition of the former Yugoslav 
republic of Macedonia. 

Organizers said at least 100,000 
Macedonian Greeks braved freez- 
ing temperatures in this northern 
port to take pan in the boisterous 
rally. Police estimated the crowd in 
the lens of thousands. 

“Macedonia is Greek and its 
capital is Salonika," the crowd 
chanted. Some demonstrators 
chanted anti- American slogans and 
tried to break through the police 
cordon while others hurled eggs, 
coins and other objects at the con- 
sulate building. 

Greece refuses to recognize the 
landlocked republic of 2 million 
Slavs and ethnic Albanians on its 

northern border until it changes its

MS bearings lo assess the economic impart of 
saitetkats before taking final action. 

Such threats of. U& sanctions have succeed- 
ed m the past in wringing concessions from

Japan tianged pnbuo-amriu bidding proce- 
dures rather than face UiL sanctions. 

■ Stocks Fall and Yen Soars Again 

Japanese stock prices fell and the yen soared 
again Tuesday as financial markets anticipated 
the U.S. trade measures. Paul Blustein of the 
Washington Post reported from Tokyo. 

The 225-stock Nikkei average lost 2.5 percent 
of its value, closing at 18,975 points Tuesday, 
and the dollar fell to 101.90 yen in Tokyo, again 
approaching its record low of I0u.35 yen vet last 
summer (Page 12). 

The rise in the Japanese currency amounts to 
a sanction on Japanese industry almost as dev- 
astating as a punitive tariff, as the higher the 
yen, the more expensive Japanese products be- 
come. relative to those of foreign competitors.

Somalia for the Somalis 

SributtC The World Does Not Need a U,S,-Japanese Divorce 

Somalia 1994: Can a crisis-iom nation chat 
the United Nations failed to put back together 
put itself back together? The optimistic theory 
that launched the first American-led UN in- 
tervention after the Cold War was that the 
world body would conduct an enlightened 
and generous revival; this effort was undone 
when both the United Nations and. in its own 
way, the United States let themselves be drawn 
into rivalries of local factions and clans. The no 
less optimistic theory underlying withdrawal 
now is that the same Somalis, seeing rurally 
that their future hinges on their own deeds, 
will turn around and start acting differently. 

The most evident and disheartening devel- 
opment in Somalia is the violence being car- 
ried on by the bandits and small groups that 
have moved into the power vacuum created by 
th? departure of American and European 
peacekeepers, who will all be out by March 3 1 . 
Mostly local and spontaneous, this violence 
threatens to return Somalia to the anarchy 
that sparked the American-led humanitarian 
intervention in 1992. Less visible but still a 
major part of the unfolding reality is the 
political consultation going on among the 
major Somali factions, including the one led 
by the intervenors' former nemesis, Moham- 
med Farrah Aidid. The race is on berwecn the 

explosive violence and the slow and indirect 
Scraraii bargaining style. 

Not that the whole answer wall be known on 
March 31. Peacekeepers from India, Pakistan 
and elsewhere will remain, although these 
contingents lack the equipment and capabili- 
ties of those departing. From trying to run 
Somalia, the United Nations has trimmed 
back to “assisting" local factions; it has halted 
attempts at coercive disarmament and is easing 
out those of its aides most identified with the 
earlier overreaching. In conjunction with this, 
the United States has changed its own policy, 
encouraging local political cooperation without 
taking sides and warning up to tbe formerly 
demonized General Aidid. African and Arab 
regional groupings are being asked to help. 

“Somalia" has become a metaphor for the 
United Nations and the United States at- 
tempting more in peacekeeping and “nation- 
-building" than either was willing or able to 
achieve. Tbe disappointment that Washing- 
ton suffered there helped stir a sharp Ameri- 
can reaction against participation in these 
roles everywhere. A halt to the renewed disin- 
tegration that now looms over Somalia would 
have positive effects in other lands. Much is 
riding on what the Somalis da 


A Stain on Iran and Islam 

Five years ago this week. Ayatollah Ruhol- 
lah Khomeini of Iran issued a decree calling 
upon the Islamic faithful to murder Salman 
Rushdie and all associated in publishing his 
novel “The Satanic Verses." A few months 
later the old ayatollah died, but tbe deadly 
fatwa stands. Murderous goons have struck 
fatally at Rushdie's Japanese translator, and 
tried to kill his Italian translator and Norwe- 
gian publisher. Vet Iran’s leaders behave as if 
they are tbe injured parlies when other coun- 
tries dare make a fuss about this barbarism. 

After visiting Bonn two weeks ago. an Irani- 
an member of parliament saw “no reason why 
German politicians should antagonize Islam" 
by defending Mr. Rushdie's right to live. “We 
must be able to protect our interests in tbe 
world in the best possible way," said Moham- 
mad LarijanL He means that Iran should be 
free io offer S3 milli on for the death of a British 
subject and to assault exiled foes in a dozen 
countries — without jeopardizing its ability to 
buy nuclear reactors from infidels. 

Fortunately. Germany has held firm in for- 
bidding its companies to complete what would 
be Iran's fust nuclear power station. Iran can- 
not expect normal trade relations, much less 
sensitive technology, so long as it mocks rudi- 
mentary rules of decency among nations. The 
Rushdie affair is not about religion but about 
politics. The fatwa was issued to reassert Aya- 
tollah Khomeini's leadership over the Iranian 
revolution, and is kept in force by politicians 
fearful of being seen as soft on the West 
Tbe essential issue has been correctly stated 
by President Bill Clinton: No civilized society 
kills people for writing bocks. Mr. Larijani is 
perfectly free to fulminate against The Satanic 
Verses" and to condemn its author's views. But 
Iran's right to assail Mr. Rushdie cannot invade 
his right to breathe and speak freely. Sooner or 
later, some leader in Iran wQl say in public wbat 
its diplomats whisper in private: that the old 
ayatollah's fatwa was a willful blunder that has 
injured the good name of Iran, and Islam. 


Olympic Compromise 

That's some compromise tbe U.S. Olympic 
Committee worked out with Tonya Harding 
and her lawyers. Miss Harding gets exactly 
what rite wanted — to skate in the Winter 
Games —and the Olympic Committee gets out 
of a S20 rnfflion lawsuit intended to bully it into 
doing just what h did. Tbe only thing compro- 
mised was whatever might be left of the Olym- 
pic ideal that supposedly inspires these Games. 

Miss Harding's former husband says she 
was in on a plot that he and others cooked up 
to injure rival figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. 
Miss Harding denies it, but does admit to 
having known about the plan after it was 
carried out and not going to the authorities 
until things started to unraveL The U.S. 
Olympic Committee was moving toward a 
disciplinary proceeding to determine whether 
Miss Harding could stay on the team when it 
was hit with her preemptive lawsuit and 
quickly agreed to let her skate in Norway. 

There was no need to have punished Miss 
Harding for something that has not been 
proved in court What she has confessed to 
doing was sufficient to merit punishment. .As 
the columnist Michael Wflbon succinctly put 
it on the sports page of Tbe Washington Post 
“Harding's a liar kick her off the U.S. Olym- 
pic team." Young people are kicked off teams 
every day — for missing a bed check, drink- 
ing. fighting failing to make practices or 
flunking calculus. Coaches are fired. Entire 
university athletic programs are put on proba- 
tion on the strength of nothing more than a 
hearing and a ruling by an athletic body. 

Of course, nobody likes a snitch. But let us 
consider the nature of tbe crime Miss Harding 
has acknowledged helping cover up. Sports 
Illustrated magazine, which carries an exten- 
sive account of wbat has been alleged about 
the planning and execution of the attack, has 
also done us tbe service of having an artist try 
to imagine the scene. His drawing shows the 
attacker gripping his club two-handed. like a 
baseball bat (he was seeking to cripple, re- 
member) and crouched over slightly, as if 
about to tee off on a han g in g curve, rather 
than the kneecap of the terrified young wom- 
an shrinking bade against that corridor walL 
It's quite enough to make you forget about tbe 
Tonya jokes for a while. 

Nancy Kerrigan will now be thrown togeth- 
er with Miss Harding (not to mention a great 
mob of news people) in the Olympic Village. 
The two skattrs will even be on the ice for 
practice at the same time unless the schedule 
is changed — which, considering the perfor- 
mance so far by all the many governors in- 
volved, it probably won’t be. FoDowing the 
attack, the U.S. Figure Skating Association 
chose to defer action on Miss Harding’s dis- 
closure of whal she had known, passing the 
buck to the Olympic Committee. The commit- 
tee cited pending proceedings by the skating 
association as one reason for not acting. “I 
can't believe she's actually coming.” said a 
U.5. Olympic official after the Harding deal 
was done. “7 can’t believe everyone ended it 
doing nothing." Neither can we. 


Other Comment 

U.S. and Japan at Crossroads 

The latest trade tensions between Tokyo 
and Washington show that President Clin- 
ton has failed to seize an opportunity to 
inject more maturity into one of the world's 
most vital bilateral relationships. Instead, 
after his fruitless meeting with Prime Minis- 
ter Hosokawa. the United Slates is threaten- 
ing to impose sanctions ir its demands on 
market access are not met. Japan has w arned 
that it might retaliate. Yet the risk of a trade 
war should not be overstated. The two na- 
tions have fonnd ways back from the brink 
before. And despite Washington’s mishand- 
ling of its Tokyo ties, unintended benefits 
may yet flow from this latest crisis. 

Mr. Clinton is not the only one winning 
domestic support for the standoff. After suf- 
fering reversals on electoral reform and taxes. 
Mr. Hosokawa may recover some lost politi- 

cal ground because be stood up to the Ameri- 
cans. And inappropriate and resented as they 
may be. U.S. threats may help Japan’s reform- 
ists' tackle the bureaucratic and industry inter- 
ests standing in the way of the kind of deregu- 
lation that could lead to more open markets. 

These reforms will have to be Japanese 
initiatives, showing the same confidence that 
Mr. Hosokawa did in saying “no" to import 
quotas. (This} could be another step toward a 
more mature and balanced relationship be- 
tween the world's two economic superpowers. 

— The Australian (Sydney !. 

U.S. -Japan relations are at a crossroads. 
Japan can no longer be regarded as some 

kind of junior partner in the bilateral rela- 
uonship. Wjtb the Cold War over, common 
security interests no longer smother different 
economic and diplomatic interests.

H ONG KONG — Asian reaction to the 
breakdown of U.S.-Japanese trade 
talks has been muted. Editorials have ex- 

E ressed sorrow, not anger. Stock markets 
ave taken a knock, but a modest one by 
recent volatile standards. Yet deeper down 
there is that tension that comes with not 
knowing what to expect next. 

Nothing dramatic is likely to happen soon. 
But at the very least, nations haw to consider 
the consequences of U.S.-Japancse frictions 
for themselves, and contemplate difficult 
choices should those deteriorate. 

Last year's debates over the respective mer- 
its of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation and 
the East Asian Economic Caucus may appear 
less theoretical than (bey did then. 

There is something viscera] in Washing- 
ton's attitude to Japan that cannot be ex- 
plained cither by trade specifics or by tbe 
economic outlook. Thanks to Presidents Ron- 
ald Reagan and George Bush, Asia may have 
misread the depth of antipathy toward Japan 
which easts in some influential quarters in the 
United States. Bill Clinton has taken the lid off 
this box of emotions by laying down targets 
that are not only impr actical but contrary to 
traditional U.S. aversion to managed trade. 

Mr. Clinton, the opportunist politician, 
may find it hard to put the lid back when he 
wants to. Logic is certainly missing from the 
present situation. 

There is no doubt that the Japanese overall 
current account surplus of S130 billion is 
unsustainable, as is a 550 billion trade surplus 
with the United States. There is no doubt 
either that Japan's economy needs further 
stimulus if it is to enjoy a domestic demand- 
led recovery. Nor doubt that some of its 
markets have yet to be prised open. But this is 
a curious time for the United States to choose 
to threaten trade war. 

The U.S. economy is recovering, jobs are 
being created. U-S. firms are widely acknow- 
ledged to have enhanced their international 
competitiveness — through cost cutting, in- 
vestment and technological excellence and 
not simply because of a weak dollar. 

The Japanese surplus has probably peaked 
(despite low oil prices). Inflated last year by 
thenseof the yen. this year it should contract 
as export volumes are pressured by lade of 
competitiveness. Further yen strength will sim-

being driven by its gut and not its bead that is 
worrying others. Many in Asia are sympathet- 
ic toward U.S. complaints about Japan, fed 
that Japan deserves to be taught a trade 
lesson, yet worry deeply about the conse- 
quences of emotional and unila teral actions. 

After aU, the Bill Clinton now threatening 
Japan with sanctions is the same Clinton who 
was supposed to be so strongly behind multi- 
lateralism on trade as evidenced by efforts to 
conclude the Uruguay Round. This is the 
same Clinton who three months ago was host- 
ing the AFEC summit in Seattle, proclaiming 
the need Tor greater multilateral trade cooper- 
ation across the Pacific. 

Tbe Clinton who professes to believe in 
freer trade and macroeconomic objectives is 
the Same One Who Wants tO impnag nnmerial 
targets on specific sectors when it is the total- 
ity of trade that matters. 

In the short term, other Asian countries 
may well benefit from Japan’s discomfiture. 
Korean and Taiwan com pani es are already 
exploiting the damage that tbe High yen is 
causingJapanese competitiveness. Southeast 

Asian subsidiaries of Japanese firms wDl do 
more exporting to the United States doe to 
lower costs, while corporate Japan seeks all 
conceivable ways of reducing its surplus. 

But tbe longer-term impact on Asa will be T 
highly disadvantageous. Japan may seem the ; 
villain for now. but the United States has 
other, trading partners in Asia whose trade is 
as lopsided and which have much more obvi- 
ous barriers to imports than does Japan. 
China is the most obvious. Korea is still an ' 
almost closed market for items such as cars. 
Add in the human rights issues, and the r 
potential for new trade Darners against East ' 
Asia is formidable. ■ ' 

In so far as the East Asian economies are ' 
linked, with Japan as supplier of capital and 
intennediaie goods and the United States 
being the buyer of last resort for end pro- 
ducts, any action against Japan will have' 
eventual knock-on effect. This would not as, 
great now as 10 years ago, when a higher 
proportion of Asian exports went to U.S. . 
markets, and before non-Japanese Asian 
brand names established themselves in the 
West But it is still a very real concern. 
Friction with Japan will add to the relative 
merits of Latin America over Asia as a loca- 
tion for investment and product sourcing.' 
Thanks to the North American Free Trade:

T OKYO — To anyone who 
knows Japan, or world trade, 
the demand that Tokyo set nu- 
merical targets for imports from 
the United States is laughable. 

Import targets fly in the face 
of recent GATT, APEC and 
NAFTA rhetoric. And what hap- 
pens if other countries in trade 
deficit with Japan also demand 
fixed shares of Japan’s market for 
imported goods? 

To apply the targets, bureau- 
crats would have to strengthen 
control over the economy. Yet 
weakening bureaucratic control 
in Japan is supposed to be a major 
Clinton administration goal. 

Tbe administration would no 
doubt argue that Japan is already 
so incorrigibly bureaucrat-con- 
trolled ana anti-free-trade that a 
hard-tine approach is the only an- . 
p roach. This is fantasy talk, the

result of reading too many half- 
baked anti-Japanese tracts. 

In some areas the Japanese 
market is indeed dosed. Bureau- 
cratic collusion is (me reason, but 
a much larger problem is incestu- 
ous private deals. In other areas 
Japan is more open than most 
countries. Overall, it is prribabfy 
not much worse in this respect 
than France.

Russian Reform Has Been Weakened From Within and Without 

M OSCOW — Tbe last three years 
of Russian reforms were' very 
hectic and filled with dramatic 
events: a couple of coups d’etat three 
prime ministers, five economic minis- 
ters. and so forth. Nonetheless, pro- 
gress has been enormous. There are 
hundreds of thousands of new busi- 
nesses, 86.000 privatized companies, 
a widespread banking system, com- 
modity and stock exchanges, a single, 
market-based exchange rare, liberal- 
ized prices, more or less consistent 
monetary and fiscal policies. 

Compare life in Russia today with 
the hyperinflation and empty shops 
in Ukraine, and you will compre- 
hend the enormous progress that re- 
formers achieved. 

By Boris G. Fyodorov 

The writer resigned last month as Russian finance minister. 

What really frustrates is misimer- 
preiation of the situation. The oppo- 
sition was very effective in promoting 
the idea that Russia underwent loo 
much “shock therapy" and that re- 
forms should be more graduaL Some 
people in the West, out of ignorance, 
took the same position. 

Last year ihe average monthly rate 
of inflation in Russia was 20 percent. 
Registered unemployment was less 
than 1 percent. Real growth b per- 
sonal income was 10 percent. Food 

consumption and retail sales in- 
creased. Who in his right mind can 
call this shock therapy? 

To the contrary, we are going too 
slowly, wo gradually. The mam prob- 
lem is political wilL If the president 
forms coalition governments that go 
in several different directions at the 
same time, if nobody takes responsi- 
bility for painful but vital measures, 
the situation can only deteriorate, re- 
sulting in social unrest and possibly 
in political upheaval. 

Still, a fledgling market economy 
exists and responds to regulation by 
market policy tools. Most of the basic 
changes have already occured, but we 
need more law and order, financi al 
discipline, consistency in policies and 
fmc-tuning of government measures, 
as well as better trained, dedicated 
government officials. 

Tbe days of radical steps are over. 
Tightening of policies, macroeco- 
nomic stability, healthy currency, 
boosting of savings and investment, 
productivity, competition — these 
are the proper targets for 1994. 

Unfortunately, a different view 
prevailed. Many people in high 
places did their best to help demo-, 
critic pro-reform groups tad in the 
elections. Political inexperience and 
the Inability to explain goals and re- 
sults of the reforms to tltt population 
worked in tbe same direction. 

Once the electoral faflnrc hap- 
pened, these faces came out of am- 
bush, took off the masks and started 
to say that people had voted fa a 
change of policies. Various “experts" 
in the West joined the chores. 

One has to live in Russia and be in 
the midst of events to understand the 
real situation. People here do not yet 
read political programs, they vote 
emotionally; they follow personal- 
ities of the day. What we have as a 
result is a divided parliament which, 
to add insult to injury, is devoid of 
many powers that it previously held. 

In government we got a “red" di- 
rectors' junta plus a few turncoats 
who ai long last lave the dear major- 
ity and immediately initialed a turn- 
around in policies. Many an official 

had waited fa this moment for two [promises trilfions to everybody. Ev- 
loiig years. It is dear that an ecoaom- .erything is on public record. Roman- 
ic coup d'etat took place in Moscow L her that fa 7> years, many wads in

P RINCETON. New Jrreey — ^ The 
worst and most predictable 
American forage policy failure of the 
late 20ib century has been unfolding 
in post-Communist Russia ever since 
the Soviet breakup in 1991. Ail the 
outcomes America wans in a country 
that remains so essential to its securi- 
ty — democracy, a prespering econo- 
my, a political establishment friendly 
to the West major reductions ana 
safeguarding of nuclear w eapons and 
other devices of mass destrectien — 
have been undermined by the U.S. 
government's own policy. 

American politicians and pundits 
are belatedly awaking to tnai fail- 
ure. but not to its full” magnitude or 
the real reason behind i:7 Pointing 
the who-iost-Russia finger at earn 
other, zealous promoters of a pro- 
foundly unwise policy, initiated by 

the Bush administration me ex- 
panded by the Clinton team, bsisi 
that it failed because ike West did 
not give sufficient or timely finan- 
cial aid to Russian reformers. Their 
self-serving excuses ignore the les- 
sons that must urgently be leaded if 
tbe American debacle ir Rusria is 
not to become a full-scale disaster. 

At fault is the basic premise that 
has guided American po’icy since 
1991: that tbe United States car. and 
should intervene deeply In Russia's 
internal affairs in order to transform 
thaL nation into alt American- style 
system at home and a cortp-ilv. 
junior partner abroad. A preposter- 
ously missionary idea, it ;$ ;n almost 
total* conflict with Russia’s histori- 
cal traditions, present-day realities 
and possibilities, ard thus car.ser- 
ously counterproductive. 

Consider how badly this policy has 
failed. Prospects fa peaceful devel- 
opment loward stable markrts ar.c

year ago. The economy :? m free-fall,

collapse of production, capital ir.-

actions and tbe ruble. 

Moreover. Russia ha? bad no real 
political system a: all since Mr Yelt- 
sin destroyed the owsststirtiena! order 

By Stephen F. Cohen 

by force last fall; it has had only his 
current efforts to create a personal 
regime of power. As a result, anti- 
democratic. military and other secu- 
rity forces now play a much larger 
role in domestic and foreign politics 
than they did a year ago. 

Nor has Russia's foreign policy 
conformed with U.S. prescriptions. 
Its opposition to moving NATO east- 
ward and to Western action against 
Serbia are just the latest evidence that 
Russian policies can be made and 
sustained only in Moscow, not in 
Washington.* Meanwhile, almost 
nothing concrete has been done to 
reduce the various nuclear threats on 
former Soviet territory, which axe 
greater today than they were under 
the Soviet regime. 

As for the U.S. wager on Boris 
Yd tan os the popular instrument of 
the American crusade. 85 percent of 
Russian participants in the Decem- 
ber elections voted against his poli- 
cies and party. Still worse, a signifi- 
cant pot of the anti-Ydtsin vole was 
an anti- American backlash against 
the riilrusive U.S. role there. 

More recently, the administra- 
tion's apparent' remoteness from 
Russian realities allowed President 
Clinton to be embarrassed by a Po* 
temkin-vtUage summit meeting with 
Mr. Yeltsin in Moscow. Promises 
iri3de by Mr. Yeltsin about the com- 
position and direction of his govern- 
ment were immediately violated. 

The “breakthrough” on persuad- 
ing Ukraine to give up its nuclear 
weapons looks even more dubious as 
Ukrainian-Russian relations wors- 
en. And in Belarus, which Mr. Clin- 
ton visited after Moscow, the pro- 
Western president was removed just 
after his departure. 

Finally, at home the Clinton ad- 
ministration has created so many illu- 
sions and false expectations about 
Russia’s possibilities that current de- 
velopments are generating an anti- 
Russian backlash — certainly against 
more aid for reform. A new U.S.- 
Russian cold war mav not yet be an 
the horizon, but a chilly peace is now 
more likely than the vaunted “era of 
partnership and friendship." 

it is said that the United States 
must support Mr. Yeltsin because be 
is Russia's elected president But 
President Clinton and his aides have 
gone far beyond that norm of inter- 
national relations, becoming his 
cheerleader, accomplice and spin 
doctor, and thus implicating America 
in sane of his most ill-advised and 
even wicked deeds. 

To understand that complicity, we 
must see Mr. Yeltsin’s leadership 
through the eyes of a great many 
Russian dozens. Fa them, he has 
been an extre mi st leader imposing 
from above — an old Russian tradi- 
tion — exceedingly radical policies 
fa which they never voted. 

His most extreme measures came 
as three still traumatic shocks to sod- 
ety. In 1991 he suddenly abolished 
the Soviet Union, the only country 
that most Russians had ever known. 
In 1992 his economic “shock thera- 
py” look away the life savings and 
living standards of most Russian 
families. And in 1993 his tanks over- 
threw the elected parti ament and 
constitutional system previously pre- 
sented to citizens as the legitimate 
post-Communist order. 

Not surprisingly, Mr. Yeltsin’s 
shock leadership utterly polarized 
Russian society, devastating all vari- 
eties of moderation and centrism in 
political life. 

Deepfy wounded, polarized and an- 
gry, Russia desperately needs moder- 
ate, consensual gradual reforms. Any 
xaoce shocks will almost certainly wad 
some rough beast slouching toward 
the Kremlin. A tend caafrtion of 
Russian moderates — “centrists” who 
see thansdves trapped betwea Mr. 
Yeltsin and Vladimir Zhirinovsky — 
is struggling to emerge as a political 
force capable of reshaping the reform 

Russia, it will adopt a new and moder- 
ate principle of its own: The - United 
States does not have the wisdom, right 
or power io intervene so deeply in 
Russia's internal affaire; aB attempts 
io do so wffl backfire perikmsfy.. 

On that principle; the United. 
States should withdraw its excessive 
presence in Russia, cease its dogmat- 
ic sermons and dollar-laden .ultima- 
tums, and encourage Russia to find 
its destiny, as it must,' within its own 
circumstances and possibilities. " 

And when — or, fa pessimists, if 
— Russia finds its own way toward 
political and e cono mic reform, even 
if it is not the American way, die 
Clinton administration will be a bl e 
to give generous financial assis- 
tance, as it must, that is both fnatfnl 
and honorable.

proportion of the average Ameri-

percent in I960 to 43 percent, the

helps to account for the high and 
rising crime rates over the past 30 
years,” Mr. Popenoe writes. 

Such knowledge is only the be- 
ginning of the search for remedial 
polides. But it certainly directs 
attention away from such popular 
gimmicks as “three times and

require males to take responsibil-

and measures that make il sharply 
preferable, in both finandal and

In retrospect, it is amazing that 
American politics was hung up for 
so long in partisan debate about 
“family values." Now that it is

by James Webb (Opinion, Jan. 22):

By afternoon I realized that I was 
so depressed by the failure 'or Clin-

ward on Bosnia that I had passed 
over another reality of that day: a 
number of quite different people 
had touched ray life or mind. Each 
was involved in public matters and 
was open, graced with candor and 
clarity. So I wiii write a bit about 
them, for pleasure and purpose. 

Representative Major R. Owens, 
Democrat of New York, a promi- 
nent African-American, was asked 
on New York City television about 

book “Mv Times.” The book goes 
into an extraordinary episode in 
journalism, a display of bravery 
and honesty for which he was nev- 
er forgiven. 

In 1982. The Village Voice wrote 
that Jerzy Kosinski, Lbe famous 
PoLish-born writer living in the 
United States, was a plagiarist 
1 was then executive editor of The 
New York Times and Mr. Kozinski 
was my friend.

Thai was it No resentment

I spoke with a couple of journal- 

strikes back, and if il does it creates

given the profit it makes for 
wealthy owners who relish publish-

retaliate, viciously and forever.

Question for Khasis: 

What Do Men Want? 

By Syed Zobair Ahmed 

S HILLONG India — The the patrilineal system, bowev 
marniineai Khasi society in So is a prominent Khaa sch 

J marniineai Khasi society in 
northeastern India, one of the 
few surviving female bastions in 
the world, is making a fervent 
effort to keep men in their place. 

Though an all- male organiza- 
tion that is battling the centu- 
ries-old marniineai system has 
yet to make any significant dent, 


the rebels claim to have enlisted 
the support of some prominent 
Khasi women. 

Tbcir struggle to break free, 
they say. has resulted in s mall 
victories; some have begun to 
have a say in family affairs and 
are even inheriting property. But 
they constitute an insignificant 
minority in the 800,000-member 
Khasi society. 

The men say the Khasi women 
are overbearing and dominating. 

“We are tick of playing the 
roles of breeding bulls and baby 
sitters." complains A. Swer, who 
heads the organization of maver- 
ick males. 

Another member laments: 
“We have no lines of succession. 
We have no land, no business. 
Our generation ends with us.” 

The demand for restructuring 
Khasi society in Lhe patriarchal 
mold is a fallout from the grow- 
ing number of women who are 
marrying outsiders. 

Following custom, the youn- 
gest daughter inherits the proper- 
ty and after marriage her hus- 
band moves into the family 
house. Outsiders are said to mar- 
ry Khasi women for their proper- 
ty, while the women say they pre- 
fa to marry outsiders bttause 
their own tribesmen tend to be 
irresponsible in family matteis. 

In rebuttal, many Khasi men 
say (he outsiders take advantage 
of the immat urity, youth and vul- 
nerability of the youngest daugh- 
ters and devour aO their property 
and business. As a result, many 
Khasi men become paupers. 

Another problem caused by 
these marriages is the disintegra- 
tion of families. About 27.000 
Khasi women were divorced by 
their non-Kbasi husbands in re- 
cent years, the highest number 
among India’s northeastern 
tribes. The Khasi Student Union 
has issued a stem warning to 
young Khasi women against 
mar rying “nontribals," saying 
they may be ostracized if they 
do. It is against switching over to 

the patrilineal system, however. 

So is a prominent Khasi schol- 
ar. H.W. Sien, who cautions 

tha t a patrilineal shift “would 
result in cross- marriages be- 
tween clans, which is taboo in 
Khasi society.” and adds, “Ulti- 
mately. it would lead to genetic 
defects in the offspring.” 

He points out that a Khasi sot 

or daughter takes the surname of 
the mother. Therefore, if two sis- 
ters marry two men of different 
dans, in a patriarchal system the 
surnames of their children would 
be different and marriages be- 
tween cousins would be valid. 
“This goes against the basic prin- 
ciple of Khaa custom,” be said. 

At the same time, Mr. Sun 
condemns those who are opposed 
to Khaa women's marrying out- 
side the tribe. 

“Khasi culture is very flexible,” 
he said. “No problem if a non tri- 
bal wants to marry a Khasi gjit as 

long as he is prepared to live with 

her and foQcnv the Khasi custom. 

It will only add to the variety in 
Khasi society" 

But Mr. Swer says such liberal- 
ism is the root cause of bastard- 
ization of his tribe. 

“Today, we have over 2,000 
dans, but very few of them are 
pure Kbasis," he observed. His 
demand for change, he adds, 
would stop outsiders from chas- 
ing Khasi young women, since 
tinder the patrilineal system their 
wives could not inherit property. 
But whai about men marrying 
outside their tribe? 

“The girls will be taken into the 
Khasi fold,” he replied. “The cM- 
dren from the wedlock wfll auto- 
matically be Kharis.” 

While some men would like to 
end female domination, they do 
not support Mr. Swo’s move- 
ment to abandon the deeply held 

“We Kharis underestimate the 
contributions of our fathos to the 
family H. T. Wells, a cous- 
in of Mr. Sien. “Our fathers do a 
lot. but the credit gpes to the 
mothers. I would love to have the 
patriarchal system but for the re- 
spect of our custom.” 

Mr. Swer admits that the men's 

demand for a patrilineal society is 

still a distant hope. But people 
like Mr. Wells, half converts to 
his idea, sustain his dream.

f Pere Goriot’: Why Bother? 
Just Stay Home and Read It 

By Sheridan Morley 

International Herald Tribune 

L ONDON — At the Orange Tree in 
Richmond. Geoffrey Beevers's adap- 
tation and production of “Poe Cor- 
tot" suffers somewhat from the “why 
bother” syndrome. This is a perfectly thorough, 
respectable and efficient staging of the Balzac 
classic, but it offers little more than you could 
get from a reading of the original book or even a 
nearing of it on radio or cassette. Indeed, it is 
exactly the kind of production that used to fill 
BBC Radio 4 on drowsy Sunday afternoons 
before the Broadcasting House revolution, and 
that is really where it should have remained 
For we expect a Utile more than fidelity-of- 
novei staging since the Royal Shakespeare 
Company’s “Nicholas Nickleby” — some indi- 
cation that the company wishes to do more than 
just act out highlights from the text and provide 
a useful synopsis of the boring bits. “Goriot" 
was one of my set texts in school, and 1 wish 
that this production had been available just 
before I sat the final exams as a kind of aide- 
memoire and final summary. In that respect, its 
usefulness to schoolchildren is undeniable. 

But for adult audiences, some indication of 
why Beevers chose this above other Balzac 

rome Kern you mil have some, though only 
some, idea of what is going on here. 

For Hill has brilliantly united two apparently 
random, staged screen traditions: a daft 70s 
musical in which bright young thing s on their 
way to the anyone-for-tennis courts suddenly 
find themselves halfway up a mountain with a 
host who unsociably develops fangs, while in 
the background peasants are assembling in i he 
forest to fight off furry creatures who eat peo- 

"Dances With Wolves” would have been Hill's 
only other possible title, and even that would not 
haw made much sense to Kevin. Costner: for this 
is a gloriously ramp local concoction, full of 
songs that sound as if Sandy Wilson rejected 
them 40 yean ago, and performances that seem 


to have been preserved in aspic since Joan 
Uttlewood's departure from East London. In- 
deed, the vaudeville routines with which Steven 
Pacey converts himself into the baity monster, or 
Toni Palmer does actually get to dance with the 
wolves, have at least a century of British music- 
hall tradition behind them.

The W ar of Fantasy Movie F estivals in France 

By John Rockwell 

New York Times Scmce 

G ERARDMER, France — Once 
upon a lime. 21 years ago to be 
exact, there was a slightly sterile 
but picture-perfect and perfectly 
organized new French ski resort called Avoriaz. 
Its builders, who had erected this self-contained 
village on pristine alpine meadows, decided 
they needed to attract attention to their ven- 
ture. And so the midwinter Avoriaz Festival, 
devoted to "fantastic" films — science fiction, 
fantasy, horror and all-purpose weirdness — 
was born. 

It proved a great success, the high point of 
many junketing French journalists’ winters.

Valenti erf France, among other things. His role 
as chief spokesman for French films worldwide 
comes from being the head of Unifrance, 
charged with encoaraging the international dis- 
tribution of French films. But he is also a film 
producer of note, now on his own after years at 
Gaumont Films, and a weekly film critic for the

mediates between a kind of Byzantine antiquity 

and well, although his Dealing entourage of 
Bremond and others, chuckling appreciatively at 
his every boa mol. seemed a little self-congratu- 
latory. He was especially caustic about Valenti, 
whose blunders he felt had encouraged the Euro-

He kept referring to Valenti, in the course of an

Toscan du Plantier blundered himself. In a con-

first denied and then said had been off the

Deception. I would have pr e fer red that he spared 
lives, but God is cruel” 

Valenti thunderously denounced Toscan du 
Plan tier’s msensitivitj^ Toscan du Plantier and 
Valenti have since officially made up, but the 
flap overshadowed the festival's intended pur- 
pose in the European press. 

That purpose was to present what Toscan du 

Plantier, borrowing a term from the fashion 
industry, called “the spring collection' 7 of 
French films. The trouble with this policy 1 is 
. that, unlike the amnia) showcases of French 
films in Sarasota, Florida, and, as of last year, .

French films to find widespread international

most of whom spoke in Fn g Hsh, to the open 
outrage of the Francophones' — several cop- 
plained that for all their government subsidies 
and self-promotion, the French couldn’t touch 
Hollywood when it came to efficient marketing.

Isadora Duncan Back on Stage 

By Thomas Quinn Curtiss 

International Herald Tribune 

P ARIS — Isadora Duncan, the rebel- 
lious California girl who sought to 
advance the dancing art with her 
innovations derived from Greek 
sculpture, made her debut in Chicago in her 
early 20s in 1899- Her novel venture was 
beyond her audiences there and so she left for 
Europe where she attained great popularity 
and was acclaimed by Diaghilev and Gordon 

An American playwright, Martin Sher- 
man, has drawn her portrait, all passion 
spent in “Quand EDe Dansait” at the Come- 
die des Champs Elysees (where she often 
danced in the grande sclbr). 

In this version she is disclosed in her Paris 
apartment, circa 1922, surrounded by her 
eccentric entourage and short of money and 
contracts. She has recently relumed from 
Moscow after [be Bolsheviks have seized 
power. There she had acquired an obstreper- 
ous husband, the roaring, drunken peasant 
poet. Sergei Yesenin, who bullies and beats 
her when he grows jealous at the arrival of a 

young composer who hope to prepare a 
score for Duncan’s next engagement. Others 
present are a would-be ballerina studying 
Duncan lessons hopelessly, a woman friend 
offering unsolicited advice, a German fntu- 
lein and a grasping Italian booking agent. 

Anny Duperey has adapted Lbe script and 
undertakes the role of Isadora, conveying its 
pathos, absurdities and moving flashes of 
vanished grandeur with extraordinary' dis- 
tinction. As Yesenin never learned English 
and Isadora knew no Russian, the violent 
poet, shrewdly cast with Oleg Menshikov’, a 
Moscow actor of repute, recites his verses and 
insults in his own tongue. There is a touching 
performance by Catherine Rich as the pupil 
who can only travesty the Duncan method, 
while Micbile Moretti as the chatterbox, 
Louise Vincent as the Teutonic comic maid 
and Jerome Berthoud as the naive musician 
fit their assignments to perfection under Pa- 
trice Kerbrat’5 guidance. 

The revival of Harold Pinter's "Homecom- 
ing" of 1966 (adapted as "Le Retour" at the 
TfaeaLre de 1’ A teller) was greeted with pro- 
longed applause. 

This is a scabrous fable about a brutish old 

father and his two caddish sons who lure the 
wife of a third son to serve as a family 
prostitute — a situation the woman accepts 
without protest. 

A strange spell of fatality hovers over the 
grotesque happenings lit with a wild, devilish 
mockery. Bernard Murat has restaged tins 
popular piece with sagacious skill in both 
capturing the sinister atmosphere and in as- 
sembling an exemplary company, with Jean- 
Pi erre MarieUe as the domineering chieftain 
of the dan. 

Russian drama is represented at the Odton 
Theatre de I" Europe with Lliris Pasqual's ex- 
pansive production of Maxim Gorky’s “Les 
Estivante" (“Summerfolk”) that in 1904 fol- 
lowed the author’s masterpiece. "The Lower 

In this expose of the middle classes. Gorky 
was unable to humanize his characters as 
Chekhov did with touches of humor and 
understanding. Nevertheless, it contains sev- 
eral mood passages that present us with an 
informative curiosity of theatrical history, 
and Pasoual has resurrected it with blue- 
ribbon players and spectacular decor. 

and turn-of-the-century decadent modernity. 
The single set is at once an overdecorated 
palace, a prison dungeon, and in between a 
kind of warehouse or roofed-over courtyard. A 
royal palace cum workplace that might have 
been designed by Otto Wagner. 

Herod wears a business Suit and spectacles 
and smokes cigarettes, but over the suit he has a 
rich ceremonial costume. Herodias could be a 
Byzantine icon or perhaps an exotic Viennese 
matron from a Klimt painting. The Holy Land 
in biblical times is seen through glasses sup- 
plied by the firm of Strauss ana Oscar Wilde. 

Andrfc Engel's staging is anything but static. 
Salome is a hysterical teenager, at tunes climb- 
ing the gate of Jokanaan’s prison, but capable 
of deceptive calm. The infamous dance 
(shrewdly choreographed by Francoise Gits) 
builds from languid immobility to frenzy. 

Jokanaan is no impassive ascetic, he throws 
his shoes to keep Salome away. The Jews and 
Nazarenes (again business suits under ritual 
vestments) are drawn into the action, not dis- 
missed. At the end, Salome is not crushed under 
the soldiers’ shields. The page steps out from 
the palace door and avenges Nanaboth's sui- 
cide by slitting the princess’s throat. 

ft would be hard to improve cm the cast at 
hand. Karen Huffsiodt. an American soprano 
whose European career seems to have lifted 
nicely into orbit, is as fine a compromise as the 
role demands between petulant teenager and 
Wagnerian vocal presence. She was matched by 
Monte Pederson's vocally stunning Baptist. 

Ragnar Ulfung as the lascivious tetrarch and 
Leonie Rysanek as his not-so-loving consort 
were models of experience and calculated vocal 
acting, and while it may be ongallant to say so, 
they represent a combined total of more than 90 
years on the musical stage. Deon van der Walt

Murdoch Cites 
Bias Complaints 

Compiled by Ow Staff From Usfwdm 

NEW DELHI — Rupert Mur- 
doch. said Tuesday (he British 
Broadcasting Carp, could lose a key 
channel an his STAR TV satellite 
network unless it addressed bias 

Mr. Murdoch said he was in- 
clined to replace the BBC with his 
own Sky TV news channel to im- 
prove the overseas image of the two 
Asian countries as well as to seek 
better ties with them. 

“That may be a solution that we 
may have to come to,” Mr. Mur- 
doch said at the end of right-day 
tour of India, during, which he ex- 
plored possibilities for expanding 
his television business interests. 

“We have a legally binding con- 
tract with the BBC," he said. “We 
would hope that we can resolve 
most of these complications with 
them before taking such a drastic 
step as that," 

Mr. Murdoch said viewers in In- 
dia and China made up the bulk of 
STAR TV dicots.

doch is chairman, bought a majority

Motorola Saga 
Shows Pitfalls 
In Japan Trade 

By Andrew Pollack 

New York Tima Service 

TOKYO— When the United 
Slates and Japan agreed to 
open a big part of Japan's cellu- 
lar telephone market to Motor- 
ola Inc., Lhcn-Commerce Secre- 
tary Robert A. Mosbacher 
haded the pact as “a model for 
future negotiations.” 

But rather than a model of 
success, the cellular telephone 
agreement has become an ex- 
ample of what American trade 
negotiators have long found 
frustrating about dealing with 
Japan: First, when one barrier 
seems to be swept away, anoth- 
er obstacle seems to arise to 
lake its place. Secondly, agree- 
ments often seem to fall apart in 
the implementation stage. 

Citing the lack of market ac- 
cess by Motorola and wanting 
to get tough with Japan for the 
failure last Friday of negotia- 
tions under a new trade frame- 
work, President Clinton has de- 
cided to levy sanctions on 
Japan for violating the cellular- 
phone agreement. 

But if there is fault to be 
handed out, it should not go 
only to the Japanese. In retro- 
spect, it is dear that the cellular 
agreement was not as strong as 
Washington believed. In partic- 
ular, Motorola's penetration of 
the market in the crucial To- 
kyo-Nagoya corridor was left 
entirely in the hands of a cellu- 
lar phone service company that 
had very little incentive to push 
Motorola products. 

“No one liked it, but it was 
take it or leave h,” Robert M. 
Orr Jr„ director of government 
affairs for Motorola's Japanese 
subsidiary, said of the arrange- 
ment. Mr. Orr, who was not 
with Motorola in 1989, said that 
in retrospect "it doesn't look 
like a good agreement-” 

The cell alar phone service 
company, Nippon Idou Tsushin 
Carp, was already budding a 
morale phone system using a ri- 
val technology developed by the 
Nippon Telegraph & Telephone 

Corp. Jt agreed, under corbider- 
able prodding from Japan's gov- 
ernment. to build a separate sys- 
tem using Motorola technology 

Bui Nippon idou could not 
easily afford to build two sepa- 
rate systems, so it concentrated 
on the one using NTT technol- 
ogy. As a result. Iasi month it 
had 400 base stations for the 
NTT-compatible system versus 
only 1 10 for the Motorola sys- 
tem. The NTT-compatible 
phones can be used in 94 per- 
cent of the service area, com- 

The dollar held its ground 

against the yen. Plage 12. 

pared with 61 percent for the 
Motorola phones. 

Given this disparity, it is little 
wonder that more than 310.000 
customers have opted for the 
NTT-cotnpatible phones and 
only about' 10,000 for the Motor- 
ola phones. It is this lack of sales 
which Washington says violates 
the “comparable market access” 
that Japan promised in a cover 
letter to the 1989 agreement. 

Japanese officials say Japan 
has bent over backwards to get 
Motorola into the Japanese 
market. No other counuy. they 
say, allows two incompatible 
phone systems to operate. 

Yoshio Ulsuml director gen- 
eral for international affairs at 
the Minis try of Posts and Tele- 
communications, said that 
“comparable market access' 1 
means only granting Motorola 
equivalent radio frequencies. 
How many Motorola cellular 
phones are actually used is strict- 
ly a private matter between Mo- 
torola and Nippon Idea 

“It is not b the reach of the 
Japanese government.'* be said. 
“We can’t promise hotv many 
sets should be sold. We cannot 
say bow many towers should be 

Mr. Orr of Motorola dis- 
agreed, saying that since Japan 
arranged the shotgun marriage 
between Motorola and Nippon 
Idou to begin with, it was re- 
sponsible for the results. 

Viacom Wins Paramount 
As Investors Snub QVC 

Compiled iv Our Siaff From Pispmchei 

NEW YORK — Viacom Inc. 
won the five-month bidding war for 
Paramount Coram uni cations Inc. 
on Tuesday as investors oventhdm- 
ingly accepted its 59.8 billion merger 
offer, turning down 3 competing of- 
fer by QVC Network Inc. 

Paramount shareholders ten- 
dered 74.6 percent of their hold- 
ings. more than 91.6 million shares, 
to Viacom, the Dedham. Massa- 
chusetts-based operator of MTV 
and Nickelodeon cable networks 
and cable television systems. That 
was well above the 50.1 percent 
Viacom needed to clinch the deal. 

QVC lermbated its competing 
offer after it retrieved only 10.4 mil- 
liofl shares, or about 8.6 percent of 
Paramount's shires by the deadline. 

Viacom's victory ended one of 
Wall Street's longest and most hot- 
ly contested takeover contests. The 
fight added 52 billion to Para- 
mourn's price tag and sparked 
months of court battles and legal 

“The deal from hell is finally 
over." said Craig Bibb, an analyst 
with PaineWehber Inc. 

Viacom had offered $107 a share 
in cash for 50. 1 percent of Para- 
mount's shares and securities for 
the remainder. QVC had offered 
S104 a share in cash for 50.1 per- 
cent of Paramount stock, and secu- 
rities for the rest. 

Viacom and Paramount had 
signed an 582 billion merger deal 

in September, but QVC made a 
counteroffer for Paramount shortly 
after, touching off the bidding war. 

The most obvious victors of the 
confrontation were Paramount 
shareholders, who have seen the 
price of their stock shoot up from 
561 . 125 just before the original deal 
was announced. 

The coniest featured two charis- 
matic leaders: Sumner Redstone, 
the billionaire bead of Viacom, and 
Barry Diller, the QVC leader and 
framer head of Paramount Pictures. 

The battle came symbolize the 
high stakes involved as technology 
promises to transform how enter- 
tainment, information and services 
are delivered to consumers. 

Paramount has myriad enter- 
tainment and publishing assets, in- 
cluding a movie studio, a television 
programming library. New York’s 
Madison Square Garden arena and 
the New York Knicks and New 
York Rangers sports teams. 

In addition to its cable television 
station and franchises, Viacom has 
a separate deal to merge with 
Blockbuster Entertainment Corp., 
the biggest U.S. video retailer. 

Mr. Redstone said the deal was 
pan of Viacom's ambition to “cre- 
ate a global media powerhouse of 
unparalleled proportions In the en- 
tertainment industry. Today is only 
the be ginning of the creation of this 
vast new enterprise.” 

Combined, Viacom. Blockbuster 

and Paramount will have about $8 
billion in debt and a market value of 
about S25 billion, making it one of 
America's largest media concerns. 

Mr. Redstone will control the 
company, with a 61 percent voting 
stake. H. Wayne Htrizenga, a for- 
mer garbage coDecior who runs 
Blockbuster, wifi be vice chairman. 
Martin S. Davis, Paramount's chief 
executive, has yet to receive a role 
in the combined concern. 

Analysts said QVCs bid, al- 
though' valued overall at several 
hundred minion dollars more than 
Viacom offered, fd] short in two 
critical respects: It contained about 
5180 million less cash than Viacom 
offered and failed to guarantee Par- 
amount shareholders compensa- 
tion if the new company’s stock 
failed to reach certain benchmarks 
in the next three years. 

The battle for Paramount began 
in mid- September when the com- 
pany signed its friendly merger 
agreement with Viacom. QVC 
weighed in with an unsolicited of- 
fer a week later. 

In the ensuing months, Viacom, 
in need of cash 10 fund its bid, sold 
a piece of itself to Nynex Corp., the 
Northeast regional telephone com- 

C ’, for S12 billion. QVC also 
ghi in well-heeled partners to 
help pad its war cbest, including 
another of the regional Bell tele- 
phone company, Bd! South Corp.

French Bank Officers Charged 

By Alan Friedman 

Imemunmul Herald Tribune 

PARIS — A Swiss judge Tues- 
day charged the former chairman 
and a top executive of Credit Lyon- 
nais, the giant French state honk, 
with complicity in the bankruptcy 
of a Swiss company involved in the 
takeover of the Metro-Goldwyn- 
Mayer Inc. movie studio. 

The move against Jean- Yves Ha~ 
berer, who was removed as chair- 
man in November, and Francois 
Gille, currently managing director, 
represents an escalation of Swiss 
legal moves against Crtdit Lyon- 
nais. The charges were contained in 

a mise en examitt, which is a step 
.short of a formal indictment. 

Last week, the two French bank- 
ers were summoned for questioning 
by Judge Jean-Louis Crochet, a 
Geneva magistrate who is investi- 
gating the 1992 bankruptcy of Sa- 
sea. a Swiss company that received 
loans from Crtdit Lyonnais. Sasea 
was pan of a web of companies 
that was backed by a total of SI 
billion of Crtdit Lyonnais loans to 
buy Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. 

Judge Crochet also rqected an 
attempt by Crtdit Lyonnais to file 
a civil suit in the Sasea case. 

Sasea. whose chairman. Florin 
FiorinL is in a Swiss jail on suspi- 

cion of fraud, collapsed in October 
1992 with 5.1 billion Swiss francs 
($3.4 bilfion) of debts. Crtdit Lyon- 
nais says it bad more than 650 
million Swiss francs of debt expo- 
sure when Sasea collapsed. 

The charges are an embarrass- 
ment to Crtdit Lyonnais, which has 
been criticized fra loans made to 
Mr. Fiorior and others involved in 
the MGM takeover. The unprofit- 
able bank is still saddled with prob- 
lem loans stemming from the 

Other French bankers are mean-

Issue Threats 
In Germany 

AFP-Extd News 

FRANKFURT —Gannan metp 
alworking companies warned their 
employees Tuesday that a strike 
would reduce chances for a negoti- 
ated settlement of their differences. 

Gesamtmetafi, the employers 
group, may compro mi se on vacation 
pay and job security in its talks with 
urn 0115 rat a wage agreement, said 
Dieter Kirchncr, the chief negotia- 
tor. But be warned GesamtmetaQ 
would “not negotiate during any 
strike, at least in its 6m stages.” 

. He said it would consider intro- 
ducing lockouts if the union shows 
no wubngness to “find an intelli- 
gent solution” to (he conflict. 

The employers and IG MetaH, 
Germany’s largest union, faded to 
reach agreement in talks Friday, and 
the union began a procedure that 
may lead to a strike by March 4. 

Mr. Kirchner rejected a state- 
ment by Klaus ZwtckeL, chairman 
of IG MetoH. that a strike, if called, 
would not target weak companies 
or lead to a further loss of jobs. 

Such a strike is “going to damage” 
thousands of companies, Mr. Kircb- 
uer said, because it will prevent 
them from meeting delivery dead- 
lines, create chaos m their financial 
planning and cause them to lose 
market share. He noted that IG 
MetaH itself has estimated that up to 
3.000 companies may go bankrupt 
as a result of the strike m prospect

Compiled by Or Staff From Dispatches 

NEW YORK — The slock mar- 
ket rallied Tuesday as expectations 
for government data this week to 
show subdued inflation supplanted 
concerns about a U.S. trade dispute 
with Japan. 

The Dow Jones industrial aver- 
age closed up 24.2) points at 
3,928.27. Gainers led losers by a 3- 
to-2 ratio on the New York Stock 

M.Y. Stocks 

Exchange in moderately active vol- 
ume of about 208 million shares. 

“People feel right now that infla- 
tion is Q.K and that some kind of 
compromise will be reached be- 
tween the U.S. and Japan that 
won't be too drastic." said Thomas 
Gallagher, head of institutional 
trading at Oppenheimer & Co. 

The dollar's stabilization against 
the yea aided that sentiment. 

A benign inflation outlook also 
held Treasury bond prices near 
steady, with the yield on the bench- 
mark 30-year bond at 6.45 percent 
in late trading, even with Monday. 

Telefonos de Mexico was the 
most-active issue on the New York 
Stock Exchange, unchanged at 43%. 

The initial offering of American 
depositary receipts on Elf Aqui- 
taine, the French petrochemical 
company, was the second most-ac- 

tive issue. The ADRs were offered 
at S34.35 and finished at 3<W- 
Paramouni Communications rose 
J* to 77 after Viacom emerged the 
victor in a five-month takeover bat- 
tle for the media giant. Viacom lost 
’4 to 34%, while QVC Network, 
which lost its bid for Paramount, 
jumped 1% to 5014 in the over-the- 
counter market. Blockbuster Enter- 
tainment, indirectly involved in the 
Paramount deal because of a deal 
with Viacom, rose ■% to 25%. 

Also in over-the-counter trading, 
Unimed lost % to 4% after it said it 
would take a charge that would 
cause a loss in the fourth quarter 
and in ail of 1993. The pharmaceu- 
tical company's products include a 
drug based on marijuana. 

Merck finished unchanged at 33% 
after it said it would use one of its 
divisions to tap into the market for 
managed health care. 

American depsoitary receipts of 
Daimler-Benz rose IH to 48 !* after 
it said its new C- Class sedan cap- 
tured a 30 percent market share in 
its class, and the company had an 
"enormous” backlog of orders. 

Columbia HCA Healthcare built 
on Monday's gains in active trad- 
ing, adding % to reach 40% Tues- 
day. The company was added to 
the "recoramended-for-piirchase” 
list Monday at Goldman, Sachs, j

NEW YORK — The dollar 
edged higher Tuesday afternoon in 
turbulent trading after U.S. Trade 
Representative Mickey Kantor 
said the U.S. would propose trade 
sanctions against Japan. 

A dealer for Credit Lyonnais in 
New York said the dollar had 

Foreign Exchange 

strengthened after Mr. Kan tor's 
statement on the assessment that 
U.S. actions was less severe than 
many in the market had expected. 

The currency later reversed di- 
rection and began falling on the 
view that this was likely to be only 
the first of a number of measures as 
a result of the failure of U ^.-Japa- 
nese trade lalks last week, the deal- 
er said, but the dollar remained 
above Monday's closing levels. 

The dollar closed at 103.815 yen. 

3 ) from 101200 yen at Monday's 
ose. It also was quoted at 1.7313 
Deutsche marks, up from 1.7243 
DM on Monday. 

Amy Smith, senior foreign -ex- 
change analyst at the consulting 
firm IDEA, said Mr. Kan tor's 
statement was evidence the U.& 
was determined to be tough with 
Japan on trade. This means the 

dollar would be expected to fall as 
the market looks for U.S. officials 
to “talk the yen higher” as a way of 
reducing Japan's trade surplus. 

She said U.S. officials' silence 
when the dollar fell Monday 
proved that the government want- 
ed the yen to go higher, making 
Japan's exports more expensive. 

Mr. Kantor said Japan had bro- 
ken an agreement to give American 
cellular telephones a larger share of 
its market and said the UJS. gov- 
ernment would announce proposed 
trade sanctions within 30 days. 

The reason the dollar first rose 
and then fell on the sanctions news 
was that “the market is equivocal 
on the issue,” according to Win 
Thin, a currency analyst at MCM 
Currencywatch. “On one hand, 
sanctions lend to weaken the yen 
because they hurt the Japanese 
economy," be said. “That's why the 
dollar firmed against the yen today. 

“But on the other, the sanctions 
manifest the conflict over trade, 
and traditionally, trade friction 
with Japan stirs a higher yen.” 

Against other major currencies, 
the dollar was unchanged at 1.4572 
Swiss francs and rose to 5.8938 
French francs from 5.8720. The 
pound fell to 51.4724 from 51.4855.

Britain Proposes Stock-Trading Rides 

Bloomberg Business News 

LONDON — The Securities and Investments 
Board, Britain's top financial regulator, released 
proposals Tuesday to increase the amount of dis- 
closure required about equities trading. 

Publicly held companies would not have to dis- 
close any additional information under the plan, but 
brokerage houses, market makes and other institu- 

tional market participants woald have to reveal 
much more than they do now about such activities 
as including short staling and derivatives trading. 

The British financial industry has been under 
pressure from politicians to impr ove its self-policing 
activities in the wake of widely publicized corporate 
scandals and collapses, including the raiding of 
pension funds by the late Robert Maxwell.

Machine Tool Makers Must Cut Capacity to Survive 

Investor’s Europe 

CctnpiJAfty OicrSkiff From ZJuporcfe 

AMSTERDAM'^— Philips Elec- 
tronics NV announced steps Tues- 
day that could ultimately give it a 
majority equity stake in Gnmdig 
AG, the unprofitable German con- 
suroer-dectronics company. 

■Philips currently has a 31.6 per- 
cent stake in Grundig, and it plans 
to' spend 250 million Deutsche 
marks (S3 43 mflKon) to buy Grun- 
dig Gemuscheme, or profit-sharing 
certificates, from a group of Ger- 
man and Swiss banks. If the certifi- 
cates are converted into stock. Phil- 
ips' bolding wulcl rise to 50.5 
percent of Gnmdig. 

Although 'the original terms of 
the certificates required that they 
be converted into stock by March 
31, Philips said it Was negotiating, 
with the other Grundig sharehold- 
ers to extend the life and conver- 
sion rights of the certificates. 

The Dutch company said that it 
did not want to make the conver- 
sion soon because Grundig is in the

But analysts seemed to ac- 
cept the official explanation 
that the drop was due to sea- .

tobacco output and the dosing 

• of iron and steel factories over 
the Christmas holidays.

Bloomberg Businas News 
FRANKFURT — With orders for its state- 
of-the-art drilling, lathing and mining ma- 
chines down by a third last year, the German 
machine-tool industry is fighting for its life. 

■ Only by reducing its costs and starting an 
export drive into new markets where low 
prices translate into sales can the industry, 
which once epitomized Germany's postwar 
economic miracle: save itself, analysis said. 

But many companies are unprofitable after 
their expansion during the late 1980s and 
early 1990s, so boosting exports w31 mean 
more mergers and takeovers in an already 
consolidating industry. 

It also will require a lot of help from the 
German banks. 

“The whole future of the machine-tools 
industry depends on how far the banks are 
willing to help out," said Michael Broker, an 
engineering analyst at Bank Julius Bar 
(Deutschland) AG. “They must first cover 
the companies' losses, then provide the funds 
for future expansion.*' 

Deckel Mano AG, formed in December 
from lie merger of the Bavarian milling- and 
boring-machine makers Maho AG and 
Deckel AG, is finding the first step difficult 
Deckel Maho is in talks with banks for as 
much as 100 million Deutsche marks (5575 
million ) in credits, the .<anv» amount its 
banks, of which Deutsche Bank AG is the 
largest, provided before the merger. It needs 
fresh financing because it cannot meet its 
pre-merger sales targets. 

In 1990 Deckel and Maho each had sales of 
more than 600 million DM. This year, the 
merged concern will not reach 400 million 

Both companies posted losses in their last 
financial year. 

Deckel Maho is an example of how ill- 
judged investment decisions are at the root of 
the industry’s current problems. 

In 1991, analysts at DB Research GmbH, a 
unit of Deutsche Bank, forecast a 50 percent 
increase in world demand for industrial ma- 
chinery by the year 2000. German companies 
prepared io meet the predicted surge in orders. 

Maho expected manufacturers to beat a 
path to its door for its milling machines. 
Three years ago, it built a new factory to 
make more of them. 

But then the recession struck, slicing into 
sales in industries like auto manufacturing, 
which in turn reduced orders for machinery. 

“If the factory's capacity was fuQy put into 
use, its production would represent over half 
of world output of certain types of products,” 
said Manfred Saner, an analyst in Frankfurt 
for Bank in Liechtenstein GmbH. 

“Once aii this capacity was put in place, 
demand fell away, and prices fell into the 
cellar," he said. 

Statistics from the VDMA. the Association 
for German Machinery Manufacturers, show 
that in the nine months to November 1993. 
orders for machinery dropped 9 percent For 
machine tools alone, there was a 30 percent 
decline in orders. 

Ekkchard Kohkamm. chief executive of 
Thyssen AG s capital goods division, has said 
German machine-tool capacity must be cut in 
half from 1990 levels for manufacturers to 
return to profit. 

Analysts also see exports to growing Asian 
markets as key to recovery. 

“Up to now German companies aren't 
strongly represented in the Far East,” Mr. 
Sauer said. “Bui they must gain access there.'* 

Mr. Brbker of Julius Bdr said that if the 
German machine tool producers were to fail, 
companies from abroad, including Japan, 
would move in to take them over. 

There has already been one foreign takeover 
of a distressed company. Heriel AG. a family- 
owned manufacturer of cemented carbide 
tools and tooling systems, was sold to Kenna- 
metal Inc. of Latrobe. Pennsylvania last Au- 
gust. It had lost 77.9 million DM in 1992 

“The industry will survive, but in another 
form — with fewer enterprises and further 
cooperation deals.” said Klaus Perschbacher 
of Nomura Research Institute in Frankfurt. 

Deckel Maho is already cooperating with 
the lathing machine-maker GOdemeister AG 
to reduce overhead and boost buying power, 
a Deckel Maho spokewoman said. 

Traub AG. which makes lathes, plans to 
work with Bert hold Hermie AG in distribu- 
tion, procurement and production. 

After persistent group losses, creditors 
have already written oil SO million DM of 
Traub's debt and backed a 25 million DM 
capital increase. 

Business News 

PLC, adding ttj 

world's most profitable major air- 
line, reported Third-quarter pretax 
profit on Tbeiflay of £65 mOHan 
(596 million), more than triple the 
results of a yea earlier. 

' BA’s pretax tprofit in the' 1992 
quarter was £2t) million- Results in 
mat quarter -were hindered by a 
devaluation of fee Briiish currency, 
winch boosted costs faster than it 
elevated revenue:. 

lii die first nine months of the 
company’s current Fmandal year, 
BA earned £300 mfiBon on a pretax 
basis, up215 percent from the pre- 
views year. - -;t 

. • BA is the only m^or airHne in 
Europe or the United States to 

— British Airways 
its reputation as the 
roffiablc major air- 

decade. Only Southwest Airlines, a 

much smaller US. carrier, can 
boast similar results. 

In the first three years of this 
dec ade, m ajor US. carriers lost a 
combined 510 blbon, while Euro- 
pean aixfines lost 575 billion. But 
BA earned more than SI billion, 
and its stock has more than dou- 
bled since January 1990. 

Sir Colin Marshall BA’s chair- 
man, attributed the jump in earn- 
ings to improving economies in the 
carrier’s two m^prmarkets —Brit- 
ain and the United States. An in- 
crease in the number of passengers 
willing to pay for pimnnn-pnced 
seats also shored up the bottom 
line, he said. 

In an effort to keep those high- 
paying customers coming, BA is 
pouring more than 5150 million 
ato a host of improvements to at- 
tract business-class passengers. It 

has redesigned airline seats and 
cabin crew uniforms, installed in- 
flight entertainment systems, is re- 
furbishing its supersonic Con- 
cordes, and introducing new 
lounges and increasing the pace of 
service at some airports. 

Analysis said they expected 
profits to continue to grow strongly 
as Continental Europe followed 
Britain and the United States out 
of recession. Passenger demand has 
already picked up. rising 1 15 per- 
cent in the past quarter. 

“If BA can continue to keep its 
costs in line and show a small yield 
improvement, that will be recipe 
for quite a good profit improve- 
ment for next year," said Nick 
Cunningham, an airline analyst at 
Societe Generate Turnbull Strauss 
Securities Ltd. 

Sir Cotin has said BA’s future is 

tied to global expansion. The air- 
line is trying to establish a signifi- 
cant presence in Europe, North 
America and Asia and then link 

th em 

“Our goal is to press on with our 
leading position in what we see as 
the globalization of the industry,** 
he said recently. 

In the belief that the fastest way 
into new markets is by acquisition, 
BA since 1991 has bought 25 per- 
cent of USAir, 25 percent of the 
Australian carrier Qantas Airways 
LuL, 49 percent each of TAT Euro- 
pean Airlines in France and Deut- 
sche BA in Germany, and all of 
Dan Air, a domestic British carrier. 

■ Air France Hints at Cots 

Air France proposed a cost-cut- 
ting plan in a letter to employees 
Tuesday, the Associated Press re- 
ported from Paris. 

Union officials said a four-page 
letter from Christian Blanc, the Air 
France chairman, offered few de- 
tails but mentioned the need to cut 
salaries on a “voluntary basis” in 
exchange for an employee stock- 
ownership program. 

An internal survey disclosed by 
the company last week showed that 
51 percent of the 14,000 employees 
who responded said they would ac- 
cept salary cuts to save their jobs. 

The company's last attempt at 
cost-cutting, in which it proposed 
laying off 4,000 workers, triggered 
a violent strike m October that shut 
the two major Paris airports for 
more than a week. 

The ailing carrier lost about 75 
billion francs ($1 billion) last year, 
while its debt load now totals 36 
billion francs.

The Pubhris rektioasi^p with 
Foote Cone & Belding offers both 

agencies a global presence neither 
one had been able to achieve on its 
own. The alliance was created in 
1988 via an exchange of equity 
stakes, the creation of a European 
holding company and the adoption 
of the PuMiris-rcB name through- 
out Europe, except in Francs. The 
alliance created the world's sev- 
enth- largest communications 
group, with combined billings of 
more than 56 billion, offices in 
more than 40 countries on six con- 
tinents and coordinated interna- 
tional servicing for big cheats. 
Most observers consider the rela- 
tionship a success, though Ms. 01- 
chansta said the Bloom /FCA deal 
was “ultimately far more important 
for Pubtids in the U-S.” 

Since the Eubbds-FCA merger, 

? uestions concerning the Pubficis- 
oote Cone & Belding arrange- 
ment in tbe United States have in- 
tensified. Though linked, both 
companies operate largely inde- 
pendently of one another in their 
respective territories: Publics in 

Europe, Foote Cone & fielding in 
Asia and the Americas. As with 
Publkas in Europe. Foote Cone & 
Belding has been seeking its own 
second agency network for tbe 
United States. 

And with tbe recent absorption 
of Bloom, Pubticis would now seem I 
Foote Cone & Bel ding's logical I 
partner, a further cementing of the 
relationship. But no one is saying I 
much. Efforts to reach Bruce Ma- 
son, Foote Cone & Belding's chair- 1 
man, were unsuccessful. Mr. Levy |

mature to speculate about this,” he 
said. “We are only just starting to |

LONDON — Hanson PLC. the

said Tuesday that its pretax profit 
for the first quarter fell 27 percent, 
to £173 million (5255 million), due 
to the effects of a U.S. coal strike

ahead, Hanson will lake advantage 
of these improving conditions.”

cial backwater, moonlighting professors, amar^iy 
stodt traders and even peasants turned shoe-shiners 

insist Sichuan can narrow the gap with the coast In 
effect, they say, “Ii’s our turn to get rich." 

■ Along a hundred-mile stretch of road between 
Chengdu and T-«hgn to the south, overloaded trucks 
weave among slow-moving tractors and peasants haul- 
ing cement, non ban and sugar cane on handcarts. 
-Every few hundred yards, farmers hying to become 
entrepreneurs are tearing down mud-brick dwellings 
to build shops and two-siary houses. 

Sichuan is not alone in dreaming of riches. A 
wcekkmg trip across southwestern China, indudin 
the. remote province of Yunnan on the border 
Vietnam, Laos and Burma, shows that China’s eco- 
nomic takeoff is reaching traditionally isolated areas. 
• But southwestern China. Hkethe rest of the country, 
still faces a high economic barrier: Incomes of farm- 
ers, the 70 percent to 80 percent of depopulation who 
had gamed from Beijing’s initial agricultural reforms, 
have leveled off or dropped. 

Throughout China, a surplus army of would-be 

laborers numbering in the tens of millions has been 
created through efficient fanning and overpopulation. 

Coastal industrial cities producing exports cannot 
absorb all of this floating population. The unbalance 
between the urban and rural populations may be a 
bigger threat to stability than the gap between the 
relatively rich coast and the poorer interior. 

Hie bootnlet in some inland provinces also may 

complicate the government's effort to clamp down on 
construction projects and control urban inflation, 
which reacted more than 20 percent last year. 

Given Sichuan’s size, its efforts to catch up with the 
coast could contribute to a growing trend toward 

regionalism, undermining Beijing’s authority. 

Sichuan's challenge is to create enough light indus- 
try to absorb surplus farm labor. Xiao Yang, its 
energetic governor, wants to attract foreign invest- 
ment and double the 30 million farmers now employed 
by factories in small towns and tillages. 

A handful of American. Japanese and Hong Kong 

companies have discovered the province. In Chengdu, 
American Telephone & Telegraph Co. has undertaken 
a major project to build telephone switching equip- 
ment; PepsiCo Inc. is building a joint-venture bottling 
plant; Hughes Network Systems is setting up cellular 
phones: and McDonnell Douglas Corp. builds noses 
for the aircraft it assembles in China. 

Jia Lei, senior sales manager in Chengdu for Oracle 
Systems China Ltd., a subsidiary of a California 
computer software company, said it sold Si million in 
programs in southwest China last year and expects to 
double that figure in 1994. 

Overall economic growth in Sichuan was 12.8 per- 
cent last year, according to official statistics, roughly 
matching China’s nationwide 13 percent 

Still, the gap between industrial and agricultural 
growth in Sichuan remains enormous. Industrial out- 
put in areas larger than townships surged 21 percent 
while the value of agricultural output despite a record 
harvest increased only 1.5 percent 

70 Westin Hotels

TOKYO — Add Corp., a Japa- 
nese construction company, said 
Tuesday it would sell 70 of its Wes- 
tin holds and resorts in Europe and

More Hurdles Ahead for Vietnam 

End of U.S. Embargo Won’t Set Off an Instant Boom 

By Peter Passell 

New York Tima Service 

It’s Coke vs. Pepsi and United Airlines vs. 
Northwest in American companies' post-em- 
bargo battle to win the hearts and wallets of 
the Vietnamese. 

These and dozens of other such names are 
sure to be wdcamed, both because Vietnam is 
aching to end its psychological isolation and 
because American businesses are positioned 
to sell what the country wants most. 

But there is a real question of whether 
Vietnam can grow rapidly enough to justify an 
aggressive marketing effort. David Dollar, an 
eennnmi«i at the world Bank, said he was 
“cautiously optimistic’’ that Vietnam would 
soon break out of the pack of the world’s 
poorest countries, but the obstacles are formi- 
dable. • 

The most immediate problems are the 
wretched physical infrastructure and an ab- 
sence of freo-market institutions. 

Adam Horde, an Australian consultant 


government also might lose control over 
budget and credit policies — a weakness that 
dogs Russia and is casting a shadow over 
Qma’s development 
Even, if Vietnam has the discipline to com- 
tfae transition from socialism, it is tar 
dear that America win play a signifi- 
cant part in its immeriiare future. 

Irwm Robinson, head of the U.S.-Vietnam 
Chamber of Commerce in New York, called 
President BID Cm ton’s recent proclamation 
ending the embargo a “one-way street." Un- 
less Mr. Clinton also lifts America’s heavy 
tariffs on Vietnamese goods, he said, the 
country's products win be priced out of the 
US. market 

The end of the embargo allows American 
companies to sell or invest virtually as they 
please in Vietnam. And that puts Americans 

in abetter position than one might expect, in 
light of the fact that they must catch up with 
established Japanese, Taiwan, French, Ger- 
man and Thai businesses. 

For one thing, Mr. Dollar said, Vietnam's 
greatest needs are for things that America 
produces well and relatively cheaply: indus- 
trial machinery, telecommunications equip- 
ment, financial services. 


For another, Mr. Robinson said, the Viet- 
namese are eager to offset the influence of 
China and Japan with a strong American 
presence. Last but not least, the Vietnamese 
nave a great — some would say exaggerated 
—respect for the technology of their former 

The fly in the trade soup is that Vietnam 
does not have most-favored-nation status 
with the United States, which would give it 
the benefit of the generous tariff reductions 
negotiated by America and its major trade 
partners World War H 

For Vietnam to be eligible for that status. 
Mr. Clinton would have to certify that the 
country permits open emigration. Thai would 
be a delicate political matter, considering that 
a lot of American liberals want to retam the 
right to deny the same status to China on 
human-rights grounds. 

But miless Washington bends on this mat- 
ter, Vietnam will surely be tempted to buy 
from countries that permit easier access for 
Vietnamese goods. 

In any event, Vietnam may not have much 
to sell to anyone soon. Still, the country has 
an educated labor force, enough arable land 
and oil to be self-sufficient in food and ener- 
gy at high levels of c onsump tion, and, miracle 
of miracles, profitable state enterprises. 

What is more, it embarked on a successful 

round of so-called economic shock therapy in 
1989. wiping out price controls while damp- 
ing down on budget defidts and bank credit. 

Inflation was contained, apparently with- 
out reducing national income, and exporters 
weathered the collapse of Soviet trade far 
better than their counterparts in more heavily 
industrialized Eastern Europe. 

“There is a lot of dynamism” in the econo- 
my, John Whatiey. a development economist 
at the University' of Western Ontario, said. “I 
see a lot of parallels with South Korea in the 
1950s," he added 

Bui it is easy to lose perspective. In per- 
capiia income. Vietnam is stiD in the same 
league as the destitute nations of sub-Saharan 
Afnca. Although its economy has performed 
magnificently m the last few yean, the next 
few may prove tougher. 

Mr. Fforde’s primary concern is inflation, 
driven by slippage in fiscal and banking disci- 
pline. The tax system, he said, is primitive 
and ill-equipped to deal with private enter- 
prise. And the government’s revenue prob- 
lems may soon be worsened by state-owned 
monopolies' waning power to charge high 
enough prices to cover their bloated costs. 

The Pacific Rnciri Research Institute, a 
private research group, focuses on the strains 
on the expenditure side. Personal incomes are 
already twice as high in Ho Chi Minh City as 
in Hand. 

If this gap between the capitalist-minded 
south and the deeply impoverished, largely 
rural north should widen, the government 
may feel obliged to compensate the losers 
with inflationary loans or subsidies. 

It is hard to find an analyst who is bearish 
on Vietnam's growth prospects for growth in 
the long term, or pessimistic about America’s 
chances of forging mutually beneficial eco- 
nomic links with Hanoi — again, in the long 
term. The question is: How long?

High-Tech Teamwork 

eamwork and the 
flexibility of the 
labor force have 
been two of the 
most important incentives for 
companies to move their 
high-tech production facilities 
to Wales. Again and again, 
plant managers emphasize the 
Welsh work ethic. 

Any list of manufacturing 
and high-tech companies in 
Wales today contains some of 
the best-known international 
blue-chip names. British 
Airways, Panasonic, Sony, 
QPL. Robert Bosch, Sharp. 
Toyota and Northern 
Telecom are just a few of the 
380 or more companies that 
have chosen to locate in 
Wales. Information technolo- 
gy, electronics and automo- 
tive components are key in- 
vestment sectors. 


In recent years, Wales has 
become one of the leading re- 
gions in Britain for the devel- 
opment of new technologies, 
such as semiconductor manu- 
facture. One of the companies 
spearheading this develop- 
ment is Newport Wafer-Fab 
Ltd., the front-end operation 
of a group that offers a com- 
plete turnkey semiconductor 
manufacturing service. 

South Wales-based 
Newport Wafer-Fab is a result 
of an investment by QPL 
International Holdings Ltd., 
one of the top five industrial 
groups in Hong Kong. Until 
the company acquired the 
wafer-fabrication site at 
Newport, QPL had tradition- 
ally been involved in the ma- 
terial and packaging side of 
the manufacturing-process in- 

dustry. QPL is the world’s 
largest lead-frame etcher, pro- 
ducing more than 75 million 
etched and stamped frames 
per month. 

From its position within the 
industry, however. QPL could 
see a gap in the market - the 
need to serve the semicon- 
ductor industry vertically and 
provide a complete service, 
from wafer fabrication to de- 
sign, assembly and testing. 

In 1992. QPL acquired the 
former INMOS site in 
Newport from SGS Thomson, 
the French semiconductor 
group and owner of INMOS. 
This acquisition created 
Newport Wafer- Fab and com- 
pleted the first stage in the 
semiconductor business, the 
wafer fabrication. 

The second stage of the 
manufacturing process will

is on tratotog to quality jobs.” 

eventually be carried out by 
ASAT (UK), whose site at 
nearby Crumlin should be 
ready by 1995. ASAT (UK) 
will be responsible for the as- 
sembly and testing of inte- 
grated circuits for the compa- 
ny's customer base in Britain, 
Europe and the U.S. East 

With the completion of 
ASAT tUKl. QPL will be the 
first independent company to 
offer a fully integrated manu- 
facturing solution for fabtess 
design houses: it will exploit a 
European market of an esti- 
mated S19.2 billion in 1997, 
according to Dataquest. 

Newport Wafer- Fab carries 
out some of the most complex 
microprocessor work in the 
world in South Wales. Most 
of the fabrication process is 
carried out under exacting en- 
vironmental conditions, 
which require a high level of 
operator skill. 

The advanced process tech- 
nology in Newport Wafer- 
Fab’ s clean rooms operates 24 
hours a day and seven days a 
week, but it is always closely 
monitored. The work de- 
mands a great deal of concen- 
tration: in order to ensure that 
the company’s 262 employees 
are fully competent. Newport 
Wafer-Fab has an extensive 
training program. The compa- 
ny believes people are an im- 
portant asset and its invest- 
inent in training and staff de- 
velopment provides the right

This is further endorsed by 
T.L. Li. chairman of QPL, 
who intends that the South

key philosophies prevalent in 
the group. “We believe that 
Newport Wafer-Fab and 
ASAT (L ! K) will build their 
attractiveness on reputation,” 
he says. “Our reputation will 
come from our service to our 
customers. Service which we 
will build through commit- 

ment to training and total 
quality management.” 


The automotive compo- 
nents industry is thriving and 
expanding in Wales, which 
has become a major source for 
Europe's automakers. More 
than 1 50 companies, employ- 
ing almost 20.000 workers, 
manufacture products ranging 
from complete engines to al- 
ternators. batteries, wiring 
harnesses and fuel filters. 

Major component suppliers 
include Ford and Toyota (en- 
gines I, Robert Bosch (alterna- 
tors), From (filters) and 
Calsonic (radiators). Almost 
every automaker - including 
Mercedes-Benz. BMW, 
Nissan, Honda, Fiat and Volvo 
- receives parts from Wales. 

Ford's Bridgend, plant, 
which employs 1,500 persons, 
produces 2,700 engines a day 
as well as components for 
diesel engines. It is probably 
the second-largest manufacr 
taring employer in Wales, af- 
ter Sony's television plant, 
which has well over 2,000 
workers. Of Ford’s£370- mil- 
lion ($556 million) produc- 
tion in 1992, £294 million 
went for export. According to 
Colin Johnson, manager of 
the Bridgend factory, J993's 
figures are expected to be 
similar. Its 1992 results 
helped it to earn a Queen's 
Award for Exports. 

Ford uses the latest, mass- 
production methods, and its 
main output is the 16-valve 
Zetec engine for its Mondeo, 
Fiesta and Escort ranges.

A key to Ford's success 
was the securing of wage and 
working-condition agree- 
ments with die auto unions ib 
1989. “We now have totally 
integrated - manufacturing 
teams,” says Mr. Johnson. 
“This allows skilled people to 
come into production teams 
alongside semi-skilled work- 
ers. Our Bridgend'factory was 
one of the first' to introduce 
this system.” . 

He also comments on the 
wealth of underlying talent 
among the ordinary work 
force. “There is also this abil- 
ity here to embrace ongoing 
change, which is coupled with 
very responsible dnion repre- 
sentation,” tie says. “This is 
reflected in the fact that we 
have not lost a single day's 
work due to an industrial stop-, 
page over the pasbfour years. 
There is a will here to protect 
jobs, and employment.” 

Because ~of Bridgend's 
management success, visitors . 
come from other huto plants 
to see how ft is dosa “This re- 
ally indicates ho^v well it is 
working here,” • says Mr. 
Johnson. “There isless than 1- 
percent turnover in the labor 
force, and absenteeism — at 
about 5 percent -is far less 
than at any other Ford plant” 


The recognition that there is 
a renaissance of the auto in- 
dustry in Britain persuaded . 

the German company Robert 
Bosch, one ' of the leading. 

auto-component manufactur- 

■ ers in Europe, to build its 
largesr compact alternator 
plant- on a greenfield site - in . 
South Wales. 

“We looked at various 
places ■ in,. Britain,” s ajte 
Gerhard Turner, commercial 
director- at the company's- 
plant at Cardiff. “In order to 
achieve an output of .over 
1 0,000 units a day and reach' 
ourmarfeets quickly, we need- 
ed a skilled labor force backrii 
by good industrial relations,* 
accessibility and supporting - 
infrastructure. WeTound all. 
these at Cardiff.” 

Construction started on the 
new $1.49 million pliuit in- : 
March 1989 and was com- 
pleted by mid- 1990. This en- 
abled p^uctian. to begin ih.- 
January 199 V, adopting so- 1 
phisticated manufacturing 
techniques and the most ad-- 
vanced methods. The same 
production line, using 180 
programmable logic con-', 
trailers.- is able to produce a 
wide variety of alternators.

on the extraordinary responsse:

nel before die factory was

“We had over 60,000 applica- 
tions. It was unbelievable.

parents, Ml. Budtoeftsaid, find it pays to educate their children at 
home and fly them over for visits, inatamg competition for his 
school from boarding schools in die United States and Britain. 

Although most of their students’ tmtiems are stiB paid by parents’ ' 
employers, heads of schools talk of-growing rosters of smaller 
companies, and of self-employed parents. At Mr. Bockhafs school,

A 'Multinational’ School 
Celebrates Diversity 

By Lawrence Malkin 

N EW" YORK — International companies 
and the world of diplomacy have given 
birth to the multinational child, on the 
move from place to place and therefore a 
special problem for schools. By custom most schools 
are charged with the task of the young their 

country’s myths and traditions, and this by d efini tion 
would seem to exdude muliinatin^tp 
Not necessarily, says Carol De- ^ 

Vine, principal of the Caedmon 

School where about one-quarter r Tkp mnot 

of the 175 pupils come from 1UC muai 

abroad to provide a balance be- f^inpr fnr A 

tween local roots and interna- o 

tioaal flavor. In a school where senSC of SC 

“every child is struggling to learn 

a new language and a new culture 

there is no anchor," she explains. Caedmon has 

developed its own special curriculum based on the 

history, geography, literature, foods and even family 

history of each child and his own country — and, in 

New York, that of the immigrant ancestors of the 

local children as well. 

Small and limited to the impressionable ages of 3 
to 10, the school deliberately plays up the multina- 
tional cbDd's differences. 

“The most important thing for a child is his sense 
of self." said Ms. DeVme. “Children feel anonymous 
enough when they move: Instead of melting them all 
together, we are trying to celebrate the various differ- 
ences they bring to us, and to do it in a very deliberate 

Caedmon is a modified Moutessori school, light on 
rote exercises and based on the principle that the 
•proper work of a child is play. Gasses have only 
about 15 children, and they cover two years in age so 

'The most important 
thing for a child is his 
sense of self.’ 

example. Anders Rydberg. 7-year-old son of a Swed- 
ish diplomat and his Vietnamese wife, was under- 
standably shy when he arrived, bot when asked by his 
t ftanhpr to hrip his classmate ^ learn some Swedish, he 
recalled. U 1 fell very proud.'' 

Preschool children who speak no English are 
quickly integrated. Marilyn McTagoe, the kindergar- 
ten teacher, says most normal children usually learn 
the lan guag e in three months, mainly by fa m ing 
universal body language into words. She speeds the 
process (and helps start reading) with games that 
^ — have act-out cards with such 
words as hop, skip, jump, bug, 

nportant U* an- 

hild is his dren learn reading and writing by, 
telling stories of their own travels,

ing out recipes and stones from 

home bdps involve parents, who 

mi ght otherwise stand aside from school activities as 

Mapmaking and map reading have a special at- 
traction in all grades. School groups explore New 

York City’s ethnic neighborhoods — there are plenty 
nearby on Manhattan's East side. They study the 
waves of immigration — Dutch, English, German, 
Irish, Italian, East European and most recently, from 
Asia. The school's extensive library fa weD stocked 
with books on other countries and immi grant themes. 

School trips take pupils to the restored immigrant 
reception center on Ellis Island, now a museum; to 
W ashing ton, and to the city’s many art and history 
museums. As the children move mto middle and 
upper levels, the curriculum grows more convention- 
al but even in the study of American history and 
civics there fa a constant subtext of the contribution 
of foreign ideas, cultures and individual leaders. 

“This makes the children's sped aln ess an impor- 
tant part of the class," explained Gina Saudi, the

In U.S., Parents Win Right to Choose Where Children Study 

By Joseph Fitchett 

Despite political set- 
backs, the idea of 
school choke — air 
towing pupifa to pick then schools 
instead of laving to attend the 
ones nearest then homes — con- 
tinues to gain ground across the 
United States. • 

Dczsos of mqjor cities already 

have pilot -programs that allow 
children to shift schools, and new 
routes to choice are being discov- 
ered. , . 

For example, many states now 
permit choke in toe guise of let- 
ting children attend schools near 
their parents’ work. 

School choice emerges in other 
ways, such as special schools open 
to vohmteer pupils. Another fast- 
spreading initiative fa a Wave of 
local scholarship programs, often 
funded by business leaders, giving 
poor families toe wherewithal to 

afford to choose their children’s 
schools by sending them to local 
private schools. 

These privately funded choice 
plans have sprung up across the 
country in nearly a dozen dries, 
with the biggest programs in Mil- 
waukee, San Antonio and New- 
ark. Already, 7,000 low-income 
children have been able to chang e 
schools, with that many more on 
waitingjfats. . 

Typically, the recipient lives in 
an inner-city neighborhood and 
wants to switch to a local private 
school. Far from the grassy cam- 
pus of a traditional prep school, 
these local establishments, often 
parochial schools, tend to haveae- 
assmnmg premises that nonethe- 
less offer a learning environment 
sheltered from violence and drugs. 

Most private schools of this 
type charge about $ 1,500 a year 
and the scholarships — usually 
provided by local businesses that 
are hoping to promote a better 
work force — cover mott of toe 

cost, perhaps with a small balance 
to be assumed by toe parents to 
ensure their connmtmeoL 

Another approach centers an 
charter schools, which are “pub- 
lic" schools created and ran by a 
group of teachers and staff with 
considerable freedom from over- 
sight by the normal school board 
and state authorities. In that re- 
spect, they offer much wider 
“choice” than the magnet schools 
where specialized programs are 
designed to attract studmts with 
the right qualifications. 

But the basic instrument for a 
full system of open choice remains 
vouchers — basically, the equiva- 
lent of food stamps that recipients 
can spend wherever they choose to 
buy food. Similarly, parents could 
choose where to “buy" their chil- 
dren's education in public or pri- 
vate schools. 

Most plans for vouchers view 

them, initially at least, as a govern- 
ment benefit that would be limited 
to tow-income families. 

A total of 14 states have adopt- 
ed some form of plan that allows 
for choice among public schools or 
between public and private 
schools for elementary students. 
Ballot initiatives are pending in 
another 20 states, including a 
scaled-back version in California, 
which rejected a broad voucher 
system in November. 

Whatever the approach, the aim 
is to create competition in a school 
system that currently fa almost 
completely protected from it The 
idea of competition has assumed 
extra weight thanks to the Clinton 
administration's concern about 
America’s ability to compete in- 
ternationally — a goal that fa 
widely seen as unattainable with- 
out a dramatic improvement in 
American schools. 

Even Albert Shanker, head of 
the main American teachers' 
union, acknowledges that Ameri- 
can students generally perform at 
roughly three or four grades below 
their counterparts in Japan. Ger- 
many or France. 

Mr. Shanker wants the UJ&. 
government to impose higher stan- 
dards in public schools and let 
teachers put pressure on their stu- 
dents to match foreign students. 

But most reformers, including 
concerned business leaders, dis- 
agree and insist that only a radical 

cbangecan turn around the deteri- 
orating trends. 

“We koow the answers, we have 
individual schools that achieve 
brilliant results. The problem fa to 
replicate these successes on a na- 
tionwide basis," said Chester 
Finn, a widely respected educa- 
tional theorist with extensive gov- 
ernment experience.

dollars for training that workers 
should have received in school

Shh! Baccalaureates in the Making 

By Barry James 

P ARIS — At France's na- 
tional printing office, the 
Imprimeric National e, it 
is Known merely as “The 


“Please don't say where we are." 
said the director of the section that 
prints examination papers. 

“And please don’t use my 
name," he added. 

Kidnappings? Commando 
raids? Spies? 

Anything is possible. For this is 
in the realm of the dreaded bacca- 
laureate, which hundreds of thou- 
sands of secondary school stu- 
dents will be taking in a few 

"The questions for the philoso- 
phy exam alone could be worth 
millions of francs," the director 

So ingrained is the examination 
in France's mentality that sabo- 
tage or a breakdown of the system 
could bring the country to the 
brink of hysteria — or so main- 
tained a book a couple of years 
ago called “The Bac Will Not 
Take Place." 

Thus the Fort Knox mentality 
at the printing office, which 
proudly Boasts that in 50 years of 
operation it has never allowed a 
single leak or been besmirched by 
the vaguest hint of corruption. 

The printing office produces ev- 
erything from tax forms to beauti- 
ful books, but nothing is quite so 
insular or so unkn own as this spe- 
cial section. let's say “somewhere 
in the Paris region." It has about 
SO workers — all sworn to abso- 
lute secrecy and issued with spe- 
cial passes. 

The building is nondescript 
apart from the armored doors, 
barred windows and video surveil- 

Every sheet of paper that goes in

code numbers, and no worker sees

secrecy tradition that one worker 
whose child was about to take the

dreds of thousands of citizens 
recently marched through Paris id 
defense of state schools, for exam- 
ple — it seems vital that official 
examinations not only are fair but 
should patently be seen to be fair. 

This is all the more true given 
France's highly centralized educa- 
tion system and the national rever- 
ence for diplomas and degrees. 

"The slightest suspicion would 
destroy our credibility," said the 
anonymous director. 

The section prints all the bacca- 
laureate papers for the Inter-Aca- 
demic E xamina tion Service at Ar- 

cueii, which organizes ex- 
aminations in the Paris. Crfeteil 
and Versailles regions. Other aca- 
demic regions have their own 
printing presses, and similarly 
tough security measures. 

The Imprimerie Nationale also 
produces baccalaureate papers for 
Lille, Rouen and Amiens, braille 
papers for the whole country, and 
papers for overseas territories and 
departments, as well French 
schools and institutes in 64 coun- 
tries. Papers destined Tor most 
other parts of the world are sent by 
diplomatic pouch. 

The baccalaureate examination 
papers range from a single sheet 
for the philosophy test to docu- 
ments several inches thick. 

Because of its renown for secu- 
rity. the printing office also pro- 
duces papers for a multitude of 
special competitive examinations 
for about 80 official organizations, 
apart from the Ministry of Educa- 
tion. In all, it printed some 41 
million pages last year, many con- 
taining complex scientific formu- 
las or in foreign languages. 

The biggest challenge for the 
secretive plant each year is un- 
doubtedly the production of pa- 
pers for the baccalaureate, a kind 
of national monument that was 
introduced in 1808 under Napo- 

In 1960, only 10 percent of stu- 

dents took the bac, with a pass rate 
of 60 percent. Last year, more than 
600,000 — about half the final 
year student population — took 

the e xamina tion with a pass rate of 

more than 70 percenL 

Although some critics say that 
the improving pass rate indicates 
that the examination has become 
easier over the years, die Ministry 
of Education denies that this is so. 

It insists that the examination is 
carefully controlled to maintain a 
consistent standard. The official 
view implies that educational 
standards in France have im- 
proved dramatically over the 
years, although it also reflects the 
fact that virtually any white-collar 
job today requires at least a bacca- 
laureate and a couple of years of 

There is not one baccalaureate 
but a multitude, organized in se- 
ries of scientific, literary, techno- 
logical and specialized subjects. 
The most prestigious is the math- 
intensive Bac C, which opens the 
way to preparatory classes for the 

Each series has a virtually limit- 
less number of options to suit stu- 
dents' particular needs and abili- 
ties. For example, baccalaureate 
e xamina tions are offered in more 
than 50 languages, including Bre- 
ton. Occitan, Albanian and Am- 
haric. Some sets of examination 
papers are prepared for just one or 
two candidates — students pre- 
paring specialized subjects in 
braille, for example. 

Although it prints hundreds of 
different baccalaureate papers — 
a total of 8.6 million pages in the 
month preceding the examination 
last year — the printing office 
Haim* with pride that it always 
delivers precisely as many sets of 
papers as there are candidates — 
“not one more nor one less," the 
director said. 

The papers are sent to the ex- 
amination centers with coded la- 
bels — only the examiners them- 
selves know what is inside — 
wrapped in strong brown paper, 
sealed with wax and then wrapped 
agam in dear plastic. Any mis- 
take. such as opening a package 
even mar ginally before the time 
ordained tor the examination, or 
opening a package in the wrong 
room, is likely to require cancella- 
tion and retaking of the exam. 

In fact, this almost happened a 
couple erf years bade. Tbae was a 
suspicion that questions from an 
examination paper mighty have 
leaked inadvertently after it had 
left the printing office. The Impri- 
merie Nationale was advised of 
the potential disaster on a Friday, 
worked through the weekend to 
compose and print a new set of 
papers and delivered the examina- 
tions on the Monday, in time for 
the examination to lake place.

In France, a Church vs. State Debate 

By Mary Foflam 


ARTS — Education is al- 
ways an explosive issue in 
France, andnevermore so 

than when thecentury-old 

war between Catholic and state 
schools flares up. 

Ten years ago, a Socialist gov- 
ernment was brought down after 
hundreds of thousands of demon- 
strators backing the mostly Catho- 
lic independent schools staged pro- 
tests against President Franqois 
Mitterrand's attempt to create “a 
single, unified, lay system of educa- 

Last month, the conservative 
government wound up with egg on 
its face after it underestimated 
public support for the state 
schools. The government's efforts 
to allow local authorities to in- 
crease spending on the- indepen- 
dent schools sparked the biggest 
demonstration in Paris in a decade 
— 600,000 people, mostly teach- 
ers. parents and pupils of state

schools marched through the 

At issue was the Falloux Law, 
passed in 1850, which limits the 
amount local authorities may 
spend on independent school 
buildings to 10 percent of the . 
school's annual budget 

“Ironically, Count Albert Frfe- 
deric Falloux, who was education 
minister to Louis Napoleon and a 
Catholic, intended the restriction 
to protect Catholic schools from 
state interference.” according to 
Harry Judge, former head of Ox- 
ford University's education de- 
partment, who is now studying the 
French educational system. 

Despite fierce Socialist opposi- 
tion, the governing conservatives 
forced an amendment through the 
parliament lifting that ceiling after 
a report commissioned by Fran 901s 
Bayrou, the education minister, 
showed that half of all independent 
school buildings were unsafe. 

. But the amendment was ulti- 
mately overturned by the Constitu- 
tional Council, and the end result 
of the dispute has been that state 
schools, rather than private ones, 
wiD get more funding. Meanwhile, 
the government has begun consul- 
rations on how to improve its own 
educational system. 

The reasoning is that state 
schools, too, are in bad physical 
shape, marry of them fire hazards. 
The government of Prime Minister 
Edouard Balladur has promised to 
spend 2J5 billion francs over the 
next five years m improve Uk sites 
find has set up a commission to 
examine the state of all school 

Mr. Bayrou has also begun lis- 
tening Ur stale school unions de- 
manding, among other things, 3 
five-year plan for education and “a 

complete diagnosis of everything 
that is wrong in education.** Mr. 
Bahadur invited the unions and 
representatives from parents' assoV 
ciations — stOl only from state 
schools —for talks to phm“a thor- 
ough examination of all dm prob- 
lems facing the education system.^ 

Already, the independent 
schools “get a very good deaL" ac- 
cording to Mr. Judge.' 

Most are under contract to ihe 
state, which pay steadier? salaries } 
and in many cases the cost of ron- 
ning the schools. Catholic schools, 
cater for 16 penxntfofaO French 
pupils and'eost the state some 34 
billion francs (S5,7 billion) a year 
. — 13 percent of the education bud- 
get. - ' : 

As part of the deal, seboofr un? 
der contract must teach the nation- 
al curriculum and have pupils at 
national examinations, out they 
can only tdicb rdigion mironcdm- 
pulsary 'catechism 1 classes;" Mr. 
Judge sard. 1 

State schools are well aware that 

their rivals owe much of thdrsuc- 
cess to weaknesses in the public, 
sector. Research shows that at most 
15 percent of parents choose an. 
iridepehdeqt school for religious 
reasons. Most prefer ihem because 
they offer to attractive and not- 
too-expensive alternative 1 to their 
local state sdrooL Independent 
schools are not affected by catch- 
ment-area restrictions, leaving par- 
ents free to send their dtikmai to 
independent schools wherever they 
wish. : 

More t )vm a third of aS French 
ettikhm spend ai least part of their 
school years in a private school, 
according 10 a study by the sociolo- 
gists Gabrid Langpnet and Alain 
Leger. They found that manypar- 
ents sent children who were strug- 

gling in the state schools to the 
independent institutions. 

“In the majority of cases.” the 
sociologists wrote, “the txansfej* 
takes place the same year, as if it 
were tbie family’s inspirit response 
to the decision to make the child 
Stay down.” J 

Independent schools have other 
nma ct i onx- They tend to be small- 
er, tess^ stressful and the teachers 
have ,a reputation pf being more 
paring . They have tighter discipline 
and are more Hkdy to provide

mously but according to the state 
statistics agency INSEE, private 
- schools cost parents -three times 
more than those run by the state.

the East German state 
of Brandenburg an-

so-called “European University” 
in Franfurt-an-der-Oder, on the 
Polish border, the decision raised 
more than a few eyebrows. 

ties are afl crying out far cash. The 
relatively small Land of Branden-

and there are three huge universi- 
ties in nearby Berlin, And al- 
though Frankfurt-an-der-Oder 
was .until 181 1 the site of a univer- 
sity of some repute, it has had no 
academic tradition since then. The 
city also ladta the physical charm 
and cultural amenities of other 
historical college towns such as 
Heidelberg, Gfittingen and Frei- 

Despite the initial skepticism, 
however, planners forged ahead. 
And in its second academic year, 
the Viadrina European Universiry 
has enrolled some 1,000 students 
— 300 in their second year of 
studies and 700 in font year. One- 
third of the student body comes 
from Poland and the university

diploma from a mqfor American university and the IFAM diploma. 
In addition to IFAM's associate universities, University of Hartford, 
North-eastern University In Boston. Paoe Ifrtiversify in New Yoth, 
Temple University In Philadelphia, where students study in their 
3rd or 4th year. IFAM also maintains privileged ties with presti-

and education ai Stanford Univer- 
sity in California, as its rector. 

Mr. Wittman said it is the uni- 
versity's goal to provide both an 
international and interdisciplinary 
education where “law srudenis 
also go to culture lectures. ” 

Viadrina currently has three 
faculties: law. economics and hu- 
manities. The economics depart- 
ment will devote itself primarily to 
problem areas connected with the 
change of system in Eastern Ger- 
many and Europe. All students 
have to study at least one foreign 

For the near future, the senate's 
goals are simply to establish the 
current faculties as firmly as possi- 
ble and to cement the working 
relationships with Polish universi- 
ties in Krakow, Poznan and Wro- 
claw. The tie with Wroclaw (for- 
merly Breslau) is of historical note 
since the original Viadrina Uni- 
versity, founded in Frankfurt-an- 
der-Oder in 1506, moved to Bres- 
lau with its staff and students in 
1811. Its existence as a German 
university ceased after World War 
n, however, when Poland was 
awarded land that had previously 
belonged to Germany. 

With its main building still cov- 
ered in scaffolding, dust from ren- 
ovation work floating through the 
unfinished hallways and too little 
space to shelve all the library's 
newly acquired books, Viadrina is 

clearly still in an early and experi- 
mental phase. Its newness and 
lack of reputation, however, do 
give the students one big advan- 
tage. While Western Germany’s 
universities are so crowded that 
students regularly sit on the floor 
during lectures, at Viadrina, pro- 
fessors and teachers still have per- 
sonal contact. 

Among ibe German students, 
the vast majority are East Ger- 
mans, while the academic staff is 
almost completely West German, 
a situation Mr. Wmrnan attributes 
to a lack of qualified eastern can- 
didates in the university's special- 
ty areas. While students at other 
eastern universities have rebelled 
against such “cdonialislic” poli- 
cies, a law student. Henryk Mieih, 
says the ‘imported professors are 
an academic advantage." 

Viadrina's Polish students, who 
must pass a German-language 
proficiency test, come from 
throughout Poland and almost all 
have scholarships from private 
German foundations. Most live in 
university housing in Slubice and 
commute across the bridge to 

Marta Jedlinska. a second-year

International Education/ A Special Report 

Corporations Earn Credit in Bri 

By Conrad de Aenlle 

L ONDON — When the new phanna- 
ceutica] research facility at Universi- 
ty College London went into opera- 
tion a year ago, it was no thanks to 
public authorities or private foundations, or 
even the generosity of alumni who had made 
good. The credit instead goes to a drug compa- 
ny — a Japanese one, at thaL 
Final Co. was looking for a place to do 
primary research in Europe and decided that 
the academic environment at UCL would suit 
its needs. The college, meanwhile, which is a 
part of the University of London, was looking 
to expand its science programs. 

What made the match even better for the 
college was the £9 million that Eisai put up to 
finance the lab's construction, plus £3 million 
in cash for UCLs treasury, ail together about 
518 million. 

What Eisai received in return is the use of 
two-thirds of the facility, in which its scientists 
will study the central nervous system with an 
eye to eventually developing pharmaceutical 
applications. Eisai has a 50-year lease, but 
terms are to be renegotiated after 15 years. The 
company can pull out at any time, but the 
building would then revert to the college. 
UCL officials boast that the Eisai lab is the 

first at a British learning institution erected by 
a Japanese corporate sponsor. Collaborative 
ventures of other types between indusny and 
British universities have become common, 
however. So much so that some educators 
worry that with so many deals being made, the 
pure pursuit of knowledge will become tainted 
and university researchers will become more 
concerned with selling than science. 

Imperial College London, a leading science 
school that also is part of the University of 
London, has projects with the Hkes of Hitachi 
Ltd. and Fujitsu Ltd. or Japan, Siemens AG of 
Germany, Groupe Bull of France, and the 
large British concerns Imperial Chemical In- 
dustries PI C, Glaxo Holdings PLC and 
SmithKline Beecham PLG 

These ventures bring in £50 million a year m 
grants and contracts, which helps to explain 
Imperial's motives. “We’re doing this for scien- 
tific reasons, but we’re making money, too," 
said David Thomas, ICL’s pro rector, the per- 
son in charge of research contracts. “The pay- 
off for us is to keep research going." 

That’s no easy feat. Colleges everywhere, 
and especially in Britain, are having to make 
do with less government assistance. Stephen 
Montgomery, UCL’s director for industry and 
commerce, said that a decade ago. his college 
derived 60 percent of its budget from the 
government; the figure today has shrunk to 43 

to 45 percent. “Certainly the proportion of our 
income coming from normal government 
grants has dropped significantly in the last 10 
years," he said. He estimates that less than one- 
third of the college's £150 million m gross 
income comes from direct government aid, 

Britain does not have the best record on 
state support of higher education. Actually, it 

Some educators worry that 
with so many deals being 
made, the pure pursuit of 
knowledge will become 

has one of the worst- In a study of 19 countries 
published bv the Organization for Economic 
Cooperation and Development, Britain ranked 
18th in real public expenditure on higher edu- 
cation per student from 1980 to 1988. the most 
recent year for which statistics had been com- 

Spending fell during the period by 5 J per- 
cent per year, the only country that fared 

worse was New Zealand. Spending on facilities 
feD by 4.9 percent annually, putting Britain 
ahead of only Finland and what used to be 
Yugoslavia. They were the poorest finishers in 
a very weak field. Real per- student spending 
fell in nin e of the 19 countries in tbe survey. 

Educators insist that when considering a 
partnership with business, the bottom line is 
not the bottom lint, It must be undertaken for 
other reasons. 

“On the practical side, it worts best if both 
sides see it to their mutual advantage, but it's 
difficult if it's forced," Louise Johnson, a pro- 
fessor of molecular biophysics at the Unhrasi- 
iy of Oxford, said. “They must see real bene- 
fits. In some cases the technology isn't right. . 
it’s too difficult for us to tackle. In oiher.cases 
it might be considered trivial and not worth 
our while." 

What makes the Eisai arrangement worth 
UCL’s while, aside from the cash and the 
prestige of having a large drug company on 
campus, is the chance for researchers at the 
college to work, with their corporate counter- 
parts. Ten UCL students, graduate and under- 
graduate, work in Eisai’s portion of the lab 
with about 20 company scientists; 10 to IS 
more scientists are expected to be hired within 
three years. 

Eisai receives the benefits in reverse. . 
“It’s nice to be in an academic atmosphere, to 

beexposed to a scientific frame of mmriT 
Lee Rubin, the lab's director and also a UCL 
professor of anatomy and developmental biol- 
ogy. "It’s less directed than most people would . 
imagine. " He said the roUftboratios- has-., 
.waited “surprisingly well, in the sense that 
[academicians! do research in a different way. 
They started in on these problems at a poinl- 

- way bdorfr where a pharmaceutical institution

comprising three UCL professors and a fourth

Mr. Thomas of Imperial College says; the 
companies that have set up.- 'shop than', are 
looking for the same thing ai Eisai: a pure

Amid Recession, Enrollment Falls

i urn over 30 percent in a normal 
year, heads of schools say. 

“There’s nothing happening 
that hasn't happened before," said 
St. John’s Sister Barbara, who re- 
calls losing 120 ITT students in 
one feD swoop six years ago. 
“Pla nning in international schools 
is a superintendent's nightmare." 
she said. “You cannot project a 
thing . You cannot plan for the 
next year, oumberwise. Program- 
wise, OJL, but not numberwise." 

Sl John's had forecast a drop of 
50 students, or 5.5 percent, this 
year, and got a 9.4 percent decline 
instead. “You ride with a small 
deficit if it's necessary," Sister 
Barbara added. 

Judith Glickman, head of The 
American School in London, con- 
curs. “You have to talk, rather 
than of an optimal enroOmem," 
she said, “about an optimal enroll- 
ment range." 

The school beads express opti- 
mism that when the economy re- 
bounds, they will, too. “We're bet- 
ting on the pendulum swinging 
back," said Richard P. Hall, direc- 
tor of Tbe International School of 
Brussels, which plans to increase 
its capacity to 1300 students (it 
has around 1,200 now). 

Indeed at least some big U.S. 
companies say it is still essential to

we needed to maintain . . . the 
educational coverage,” said David 
Bolles, director or human re- 
sources and administration for 3M 
Europe. His company pays for 104 
students at Brussels schools alone, 
75 of them in two schools where 
tuition reaches 620,000 Belgian 
francs (SI7J2G). 

“It’s a large cost in absolute 
dollars, but its small as a compo- 
nent of the total cost of compen- 
sating expatriates," said Robert B. 
Klein, senior partner in charge of 
expatriate services for the New 
York office of Ernst & Young. 

“In general [U.S.] companies 
are not doing radical surgery on 
tuition costs," Mr. Klein said, al- 
though some are getting parents 
who pay for private schools at 
home to share me expense abroad. 
They are alto limiting reimburse- 
ments strictly to tuition and not. 
say, bus fares and uniforms. 

But the extent to winch these 
schools' student numbers vdQ re- 
bound is a question. Here in the 
capital of Europe, for example. 
Mr. Hall keeps an eve on prospec- 
tive new members of the European 
Union. . 

But Ingrid Karisson, headmis- 
tress of the Scandinavian School 
of Brussels, notes how the num- 
bers of Swedish and Norwegian 
students in schools here have de- 
clined (20 percent and 21 percent, 
respectively) since the initial EU 
optimism wore off. and the reces- 
sion and a devalued Swedish kro-

,400 Years Later, Oxford Press Thrives 


: r*r< 

By Michael Balter 

O xford, England — 

In these recessionary 
times, can a major pub- 
lisher survive without 
ever having printed a cookbook or 

tintring to print sneb popular c2as- 
sits as Paul Dirac's **Tbc Princi- 
ples of Quantum Mechanics*' and 
the right- vohxme “Handbook of 
the finds of Europe; the Middle 
East, and North Africa”? 

This is just the sort of tiring that 
the Oxford Univers i t y Press has 
thrived on for the -past 400 years. 
The OUP, as it Ulmown to its far- 
flung international staff, is the 
largest university press in die 
woriri, issuing more than 2,060 ti- 
tles each year and holding a back- 
list of nearly 25,000 othezs. ft pub- 
lishes in more than a dozen 
countries, including the United 
States, where its operations are 
large- than any American univer- 
sity press. 

While you won’t find OUP rep- 
resentatives bidding for the bust 
blockbusters by Barbara Cartbnd 
or Tom Clancy, the press, bad so 
trouble coining up' with the £10 
^million (S15 nriHioa) required to 
^ produce the second edition Of The 
Oxford Enghsh Dictionary. 

“As a business, we are very liq- 
uid and profitable at the mo- 
ment,” said Andrew Parker, the 
press’s chief accountant The com- 
pany’s pretax profit has risen

Orief Executive James AraoH- 
Baker, who headed BBC Enter- 
i before be tot* over at OUP 
August said that the press is 
“probably die first company I’ve 
taken over that was writman-. 

many projects that c omm ercial 
publishers would not want to. ven- 
ture into, because some of them 
can be bottomless pits." \ 

The leading example is the Ox- 
ford English Dictionary, generally 
regarded as die last word on the 
Elfish language. The second edi-. 
titm, issued in 1989, contained 
nearly 300,000 entries and more 
than 600,000 separate words. Yet 
so quickly do new words enter the 
language that OUFs 18 lericogra- 
phers are already at work on the

^ third edition, scheduled to appear 
in the jear.2005, 

“The fust edition was published 
in 1928and look 50 years to com- 
plete,” said Edmond Weiner, the 
dtoitmaiy’s deputy chief editor. 
TWe’ve becn nmmng to keep up 
ever since;” j T 

The first book printed in Ox- 
ford urn produoo & in 1,478, and 
the umvemty press has ' beat m 
continuous operation since 1584. 
Since 1633;. aB decisions about 
which bboks to publish have been 
made by a hoard of delegate, 
chaired by the university's vice 
chancellor and.. appointed, from

When Christopher Wren’s Sbd- 
drarian Theater was completed in 
1669, the prin&g prenof were 
moved into its basement, an ar- 
rangement that ultimatdy proved 
uBsatisfactoy — the printere bad 
to stop work every time the theater 
was needed for n ceremony. 

In 1702 the press published its 
first best-seller. Lord Clarendon's 
“History of Ok Great Rebellion.” 
The vice chancellor at the time 
embezzled the proceeds from the 
first two editions, but die profits 
from this work eventual! 

. the construction of the 
Bunding in Oxford’s Broad Street, 
which became OUPs new head- 
quarters. In 1830 the press moved 
to its present ate on Walton 
Street, although the delegates still 
hold their twice-monthly meetings 
in a special room in the Clarendon 

B nflrfm g. 

The foundations for the modem 
press were laid in the late 19ib 
century, when the press began to 
earn considerable profits from 
sales of the Bible. The Oxford Bi- 
ble was so successful that a ware- 
house was set up in London to 
store the volumes, and it later be- 
came a springboard for die pub- 
lishing of a wide range of books 
for die general reader. 

Today, is addition to its schol- 
arly monographs, dictionaries, 
and English lawgtiagg materialc, 
the press chums out children’s 
books, school textbooks; medical 
rriOBoces, paperback editions of 
classic literary works, and even 
poetry and works of music. OUP 
also publishes more than 140 
scholarly periodicals, ranging 
from the Journal of Theological 
Studies to Nucleic Adds Re- 

Although it may seem that the 
press has a finger in nearly every 
pot, Mr. Arnoid-Baker said that 
he hoot tempted to venture roach 
further into popular publishing,^ 
“We are not interested in new fic- 
tion or most of the modem nonfic- 
tion business," he said. “Tins cots 
us out of the vast bulk of commer- 
cial publishing, but we are already 
painting on a very broad canvas,” 

Oxford is eager, however, to ex- 
pand its activities in electronic 
publishing, Mr. Amoid-Baker 
«aiH, despite the fact that this field 
has not been very profitable so far. 
The Oxford English Dictionary is 
now available on compact disk, as 
are a number of other Oxford ref- 
erence works. 

“I think you are going to see a 
considerable expansion of elec- 
tronic publishing in the future ,” 
said Mr. Amoid-Baker. “At the 
moment it’s mainly in the sciences, 
but 1 am sure it will expand into 
the arts as wdL The big challenge 
for the arairtejnir pu blishing com- 
munity win be to figure enrt who's 
going to pay for it, and how to 
deliver it cheaply." 

based journalist. 

F you always wanted to at- 
tend Harvard, Yale or 
Princeton and lament that 
your time has passed. The 
Teaching Company, a corporation 
based in Springfield. Virginia, is 
going to prove you wrong. This 
mail-order business offers Ivy- 
League entry without the tedious 
application process, the astronom- 
ical fees, the an desired required 
courses or the pressure of final 

The company has produced 50 
audio and video courses ranging 
from The Great Minds of the 
Western Intellectual Tradition to 
The Old/New Testaments; from 
Detective Fiction, Great Trials 
and Great Trial Lawyers to Per- 
spectives of Abnormal Psycholo- 

Professor Dennis Dalton, on 
staff at Barnard College, offers a 
class in Power Over People: Clas- 
sic and Modem Political Theory. 
The syllabus begins with Plato's 
“Republic,” and moves on to Aris- 
totle's "Politics," MachiaveUi's 
“The Prince," Rousseau, Mara, 
Freud, Hitler and Gandhi. 

If perhaps you are more inter- 
ested in Ethics and Public Policy, 
Professor Edward N. Beiser, from 
Brown University, addresses is- 
sues ranging from gun-control to 
flag-burning. “We haw all been 
discussing political and social the- 
ory all our lives without being 
nearly as self-aware and precise as 
we might be. This course is meant 
to be unsettling. We must look 
carefully at the claims made by 
others so as better to understand 
our own attitudes, assumptions, 
values and concluaons,” be said. 

According to company founder 
and president, Tom Rollins, "Our 
average consumer is over 30, and 
these classes bring back the won- 
derful things that were offered in 
college to someone who has 
readied a time in their life where 
they ought have a better percep- 


As any student is aware, a good 
professor can bring to life the 
study of soup-can labels and a 
poor teacher can shatter the plea- 
sure of Shakespeare. What The 
Teaching Company aspires to of- 

fer is the best teachers combined 
with the most interesting subjects. 

Mr. Rollins says, "I have lis- 
tened to hundreds erf lectures and 
reviewed hundreds of ‘student 
course manuals' in order to find 
the most exerting teachers in the 

Most universities today publish 
yearly student written guides that 
evaluate, often with rugged can- 
dor, the performance of the cam- 
pus staff. What kind of reviews 
does Mr. Rollins search out? Per- 
haps one that says: “To get a seat 
in this class, you have to arrive ai 
least 30 minutes early?" or “His 
approach to teaching attracted 
three ti m e s as many students as 
the lecture hall could hold. There 
was chaos." 

The listeners seem to agree. Sen- 
ator Edward M. Kennedy, one of 
the company’s clients, says, 
“These tapes are outstanding, the 
teachers are brilliant and the edu- 
cational value of the material is 
excellent. It's like going back to 
class with the best teachers I ever 

The cost for the courses, rang- 
ing from 590 to 5250, is about one- 
tenth of what a student would pay 
in tuition io follow such a class at 
an Ivy League school However, 
the tapes do not lead to any recog- 
nized university credit. 

The Teaching Company had 
practical roots. Mr. Rollins was a 
Harvard Law Student with a small 
problem: he had not attended any 
of his classes and the final exam 
was approaching. Being a re- 
sourceful, if lax. student, ne head- 
ed off to the campus library who* 
he located a set of video lectures 
given by one of Harvard's re- 
nowned professors. Mr. Rollins 
crammed, got an A on the exam, 
and, an idea for a new company. 

“I was amazed by the video- 
tapes,” Mr. Rollins recalled. 
“They were outrageously funny, 
insightful, thorough, masterful in 
their command of the subject." 

Much of OxfordYsuccess stems 
from, a jnatar expamaozr of the 

press’s foreign publishing opera- 
tions, partkxdariy in the field erf 

als. Yet while the press’s bottom 
line might be tbs envy of some 
corporate publishers, it remains a

the histoiy of music be ginning in 
the ancient world and the early

According to the class profes- 
sor, Robert Greenberg, a member 

of the San Francisco Conservatory 
of Music: “When the average per- 
son thinks of muse classes, what 
usually comes to mind is some sort 
of program in ‘music apprecia- 
tion,’ a term that usually carries 
with it nasty visions of pedantic 
matrons force-feeding opera to 12- 
ye 2 i-o\ds. Death 10 lhai image, 
and death to the concept that ‘con- 
cert music’ is a sterile old Europe- 
an thing best suited to a prissy 
class of unhip and dusty cogno- 

Last year, Mr. Ro llins decided 
that the quality of the sound on 
the 48 lecture music series was not 
as good as it could be and the 
entire course is being remixed. 
When it is finished the company is 
replacing all previously ordered 
cassettes with the new series. “I 
want this course to be the classic 
reference in music histoiy. When 
we're done, I believe it will be." 

All of the video courses can be

International Education! A Special Report 

Australia Beams Degree Courses to Meet Growing Asian 

By Michael Richardson 

INGAPORE — Australian universi- 
ties, seeking to extend their reach into 
Asia, have teamed up with Australia's 
international satellite television ser- 

vice to broadcast degree course programs on a 
trial basis to 15 countries in the region that 

versity in Melbourne and now has eight other 
Australian universities as degree-gran ring 
members. It runs an increasingly popular ter- 
tiary education program in Australia in which 
thousands of people study for degrees at home, 
partly through the Australian Broadcasting 

During the trial period for .Asia, which be- 
gan in October and will end in April, the 
ABCs overseas arm. Australia Television In- 
ternational is broadcasting open learning 
units for half an hour five days a week at 6:30 
P.M. Jakarta time and an hour later in Hong 
Kong, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. 

Ben Hawke, general manager of Australian 
Television in Sydney, said that the inclusion of 
open learning programs recognized the consid- 
erable interest in educational TV throughout 

“We are responding to audience demand 
and in (he long term this will enhance our 
viewer numbers," he said. 

Five courses are being beamed to Asia by 
Australian television via Indonesia's Palapa 
B2P satellite, which covers Southeast .Asia, 

have a combined population of over one bil- 

While it is still too early to say whether the 
venture can be developed into a full-fledged 
English language open university course for 
the Asia-Pacific region, Australian educators 
involved in the program are encouraged by 
initial responses, particularly from Indonesia. 

Reaching into the growing Asian market for 

educational services is an important long-term 
goal of the Open Learning Agency of Austra- 
lia. said Tony Pritchard, its executive director. 

“We want to expand regional awareness of 
open learning as an alternative to campus- 
based university courses." he said. 

The agency was established by Monash Uni- 

Papua New Guinea. Bangladesh, Taiwan, 
Hong Kong and much of southern China. 

They include “Out of Empire," which deals 
with the history and politics of Australia; a 
program on the culture of Australian aborigi- 
nes: “Unique Continent." a program exploring 
Australia’s environment; and courses on ac- 
counting and marketing. 

While the first two subjects may have limited 
appeal the last three appear to have elicited an 
enthusiastic response, particularly from Indo- 
nesia. which falls directly under the electronic 
footprint of the Palapa satellite: Dishes needed 
to receive the TV transmissions are, therefore, 
relatively small in Indonesia, which has a pop- 
ulation of 185 million and a rapidly developing 

Unlike Indonesia, direct- to-bome satellite 
receiving dishes are banned or severely restrict- 
ed in Singapore, Malaysia and China. Unless 
these restrictions are ease d or arrangements 
made with governments to rebroadcast 
through local or cable TV networks. Australia 
Television's programs containing open learn- 
ing units will continue to have a limited reach. 

However, the process of widening access has 
already started. In January, ABC and China 
signed an agreement in Beijing that will allow 
the transmission of Australia Television’s pro- 
grams cm Chinese domestic television, which 
has an audience reach of 600 raUion. 

In September. ABC signed an agreement 
with Guangzhou Television A Radio Broad- 
casting Coro. Under it, Australia Television's . 
service is now being broadcast (Hi the corpora- 
tion's cable network to about 8 million sub- 
cribere in southern China. Australia Televises 
is the only English-language service on the 

Guangzhou network. 

Throughout East Asia, from China lo Indo- 
nesia, there is a growing demand for tertiary 
education qualifications and skills, and for 
learning English as the prime international 
language for business, commerce, technology 
and science. 

Professor Don Smart, dean of the School of 
Education at Murdoch University in Western 
Australia, was involved in a recent survey on 
opportunities in Hong Kong for Australian 
education services. About 18 percent of the 

40,000 foreign students enrolled in Australian 
universities this year and the 2S, schools 
or private colleges are from Hong Kong- Near- 
ly all the overseas students m Australia are 

they axe pumping about LI bUEoii Australian 
dollars ($710 million) into the economy, mak- 
ing education among the country's -tap six 
foreign-exchange earners. ' : * 1 

"The thing that stnick us,” Mr. Smart said, 
*was that the (be demand for graduate man- 
power in Hang Kong is growing .dramatically 
because of thelink with southern jOrina: Basi- 
cally, China is like a vacuum cleaner sticking 
enormous amounts of manpower out df.Hqng 
Kong in to joint venture business on ihe-mam- 

However, Mr. PiitchanL bf theOpen Learn- 
ing Agency, sees Indonesia as having the most 
immediate potential foe extending and enlarg- 
ing the open teaming service. ' 

Australia has dearly shown that demand 
exists for degrcefcvd study at home from 
drier people wiro want extra qualifications and 

young students who have been unable to get 
into a campus university. Learn- 

about loo omereui 

three years for - 

seven years part-time. Tbe cost of six. umtajB 

abotrt 2.400 Awtralhutdoflara 

Australia. ? 

Mr, Pritchard estimated d»t if 
learning program was metaled 
the cost of six muts would be imderS^ro 
dollars. While this is 
standards, it is only about half 
an Indonesian paying full fees at a university Hi 
Australia would have to pay.

Despite Barriers, Private Schools Gain in Egypt 

By Nancy Beth Jackson 

C AIRO — Private edu- 
cation in Egypt has be- 
come a growth indus- 
try. fueled by consumer 
demand for a curriculum stressing 
creativity and decision-making 
skills rather than rote learning for 
the Thanaweyya Amnia, tbe com- 
prehensive national exam that de- 
termines the future of secondary 
school graduates. 

The model is often American 

and the language instruction Eng- 
lish, but tbe students in the new. 
private schools are predominantly 
Egyptian, and not only the elite. 
Faced with crowded public 
schools and growing numbers of 
underemployed or unemployed 
college graduates, parents in an 
expanding middle class are look- 
ing to private schools, beginning 
with preschool to give their chil- 
dren an edge. 

Even as Egypt battles len-orists 
determined to topple President 
Hosni Mubarak and critics argue

in the press against foreign influ- 
ence in public schools, tbe govern- 
ment has encouraged such educa- 
tion alternatives. In some cases, 
the private schools receive lax in- 
centives. but they must follow a 
state-approved curriculum that in- 
cludes religious studies and Arabic 
as main subjects. 

The race to set up new private 
schools, however, has not been 

without roadblocks, as one Egyp- 
tian entrepreneur found outlast 

tian entrepreneur found out last 
year when the first graduates of his 
new international high school 
were denied entry into slate uni- 
versities. The government ques- 
tioned the validity of their Ameri- 
can -style high school diplomas but 
finally made a one-time exception. 

The owner is now scurrying 
around to secure external accredi- 

tation that will satisfy the Ministry 
of Education although he believes 
many c>f his students are more in- 
terested in university studies 
abroad than at home. 

-You can’t believe how many 
applied last year." said Hassam 
Mustafa Rahman, the business- 
man whose K-12 Egyptian Ameri- 
can Academy 35 kilometers (22 
miles) outside Cairo accepted 150 
students last fall -We had about 

1.000. but the publicity around the 
school made the students run." 

Yet tbe publicity has not de- 
terred parents and other entrepre- 
neurs from considering education- 
al alternatives. Amideast, a private 
nonprofit organization that en- 
courages educational exchanges, 
has noted in recent months an 
increase in accreditation inquiries 
at its Cairo office. 

“Egypt says officially that it is 
on the road to an open economy 
and more involvement in public 
life," said Katherine J. Sullivan of 
Amideast. "It follows that more 
entrepreneurs will be interested in 
getting into education. There are 
opportunities for educators/ entre- 
preneurs offering a quality educa- 
tion product" 

The Egyptian education system 
reflects French and British influ- 
ences Hating from the 19th centu- 
ry, but both private and public 
sectors look farther west for mod- 
els these days, attracted by Ameri- 
can management techniques and 
technology and encouraged by an 

ployment ads in English in 
Arabic-language newspapers. 

Egypt has initialed many educa- 
tional reforms since 1981,’ but the 
growth in tutoring and private 
schools suggests that many par- 
ents do not want to wait for re- 
forms from within. 


"More and more parents are 
aware that the traditional educa- 
tion system is sagging under loo 
many students, not enough teach- 
ers, not enough schools, not 
enough resources," Miss Sullivan 

Schools are notoriously over- 
crowded. Even before the 1992 
earthquake, which damaged and 
destroyed many buildings in Cai- 
ro, schools operated in two or 
three shifts a day with 40 to 70 
students in a class. 

increased American presence in 
the country since 1979. 

Viewing American English as 
tbe international languag e of busi- 
ness, some companies, particular- 
ly in marketing, even place em- 

Tbe government has sought 
educational reform in several 
ways: hiring American consul- 
tants to assess curricuhnn. restruc- 
turing high school studies and tbe 
Thanaweyya Arntnn, lnn lcing to 
Germany for vocational education 
guidelines, and increasing the 
□umber of experimental language 
schools in which subjects like sci- 
ence and math are taught in an- 


other language. Also, tbe Associa-

A series of decrees in the late 
1980s caning for more kindergar- 
tens in the private sector and the 
public language schools brought 
an immediate response. Kinder- 
gartens grew from about 600 to 
more than 1,000 between 1968 and 
1991, with 78 percent in tbe pri- 
vate sector and nearly 87 percent 

of kindergarten students in private 

The government invitation to 
invest in education has resulted in 
dozens of private primary and sec-' 
ondary schools, w hich follow an 
Egyptian syllabus that includes re- 
ligion and Arabic but which also 
promise more individual atten- 
tion, with often an earlier intro- 
duction to foreign languages and a 
more creative approach that en- 
courages children to enjoy learn-

approaches to education. 

Stace 1988 that has been the goal of the 
district's buQding program to accommodate 
H400 students. Progress is never cheap, though. 
The district has spent S25 rmUian renovating 14 
existing schools, $16 nriBton on a new school for 
7th, 8th and 9lb graders, and Deer Vafley High

With Deer Valley, the idea of American high 
school has been completely rethought When 
the year-round school opens is tmd-1995, stu- 
dents will take classes m longer blocks, and 
have fewer classes each day. They will be 
divided among five separate “houses,” Where 
they will work with the same group of teachers 
as they matriculate toward graduation. 

Information tedmology, longer dasses and 
fewer students mean that “tochers are no 
longer going to spend hours teaching lods 
formulas. Instead, they wQ] concentrate on 
their applications.” Mr. Newell said.

H OUSTON — Perceived as vital to 
the protection of free thought and 
research, but also as a pressure- 
cooker that wilts professor vitality 
and effectiveness at students' expense, the ten- 
ure system in U-S. colleges and universities is 
mired in controversy that could jeopardize its 

Faculty, enamored or the virtually iroudad 
job security that tenure provides in a constant- 
ly shrinking job market, nonetheless decry the 
relentless pressure to publish scholarly materi- 
al that dominates the quest for it. Administra- 
tors, acknowledging that viable research would 
wither if tenure was not there to protect long- 
term projects, still complain that the system 
prevents them from breathing new life uuo a 
torpid faculty. 

And students, for whom the campus bells 
theoretically toQ, say the soaring price of high- 
er education is buying them less and less leach- 
ing from professors whose best energy goes 
into research and writings, not into the class- 

Adding fud to the fire is a new federal law- 
removing the ability of colleges to force faculty 
to retire at age 70. which has placed new focus 
on the adage that the tenure system promotes 
the fingering of expensive academic deadwood. 

“A tenure commitment used to be for 30 or 
40 years,” said the provost of a prestigious East 
Coast university, who insisted on anonymity, 
“Now it has no limiL How indeed, do you 
bring in new blood? If colleges are unsuccess- 
ful in designing attractive retirement packages, 
they may have to find an alternative to the 
tenure system in self-defense. The whole thing 
could come down under its own weight-" 
Lurking behind the pastoral, tweedy facade 
of life in academia, say some professors, is the 
reality of a brutally competitive scholarly grid- 
iron where first downs are counted by articles 
published and where tenure is the ultimate 
goaL The internal politics of winning the life- 
time contract can involve intrigue, cutthroat 
tactics and skulduggery worthy of a spy novel 
And the students may suffer most. 

“The process of achieving tenure is in the 
worst interests of students,” said Robert 
Shupp. a tenured professor of French at the 
University of Houston. “Professors are too 
busy crying to get grams and writing for sym- 
posia and coQoquia to have any creative energy 
left for the classroom. A lot of academics even 
come to resent having to teach because it gets 
in (ire way of thdr own work.” 

Mr. Shupp said that decisions over who gets 
tenure often turn into popularity contests 
among colleagues, and that the process itself 
encourages conformity rather than the free- 
dom of thought that the tenure system was 
originally created to protect. “Professors will 
vote tenure for colleagues who are more or less 
clones of themselves, or who present them- 
selves that way,” be saidL “Fora lot of reasons, 
it’s a system which should be abolished.” 

One nomenured professor with extensive 
teachin g experience in both the British Ides 
and the United States said Lhat the U.S. tenure 
system was "the most ruthless of ail." 

“Trying to get tenure in America involves 
tremendous, huge, awful pressure.” she said, 
speaking on condition of anonymity. “Mar- 
riages, among other things, are famous for 
biting the dust when one partner has to spend 
every night in the office. And if you don't get 
tenure when you become eligible for it, they 
often make you leave the university within a 
year. It's much worse in the States than it is in 
Europe, where the whole system is more merci- 

Indeed many French academics looking at 
the American “publish or perish” syndrome 
say lhat it leads to prolific output, but that’s 
about all. “People in the States tend to publish 
anything just to publish, especially when 
they’re seeking tenure, and what they turn out 
is often of very poor quality.” said Gaude 
Rivifre. an associate professor in the Universi- 
ty of Paris system and author of several books 
on English grammar. “People have to have 
time to think, and they should publish when 

Adding fuel to the fire is a 
new federal law removing 
the ability of colleges to 
force faculty to retire at the 
age of 70. 

that’s the next natural step in the research 
process." Mr. Riviere said that in France, the 
pressure on academics to chum out scholarly 
tare is much lighter than in the United States. 

The American Association of University 
Professors, a Washington-based professional 
group, says it is trying to address the tension 
surrounding the pursuit of tenure, but that the 
root of the problem ties only with the pressure 
to publish, not with the concept of tenure itself. 

“The tenure system was developed decades 
ago as a way to protect freedom of thought in 
academia, and that concept is just as important 
today as it ever was,” said Iris Moloisky, a 
spokesman. “Professors must be able to ex- 
press thdr true views to students without fear- 
ing for their jobs if those views are not those of 
the college administration or of powerful inter- 
est groups. And you have to be constantly 
vigilant, because there are always incursions." 

Academics defending tenure as an institu- 
tion often recall the early 1950s. when the anti- 
communist crusade mounted by Senator Jo- 
seph McCarthy placed strong pressure cm 
educators to toe the all-American line. Today, 
many say. the pressure to be politically correct 
is no less powerful and of a much wider scope, 
mandating a touchy-feely sensitivity to practi- 

cally every special interest that comes down 
the road. 

A different type of criticism has come from 
political factions, which say (hat the tenure 
system creates a privileged class of workers in 
an economy where layers of manufacturing 
and management jobs have been permanently 
lopped off. Miss Molotsky. asked why college 
professors should enjoy the kind of lifdong job 
security that has come to elude just about 
everyone else, replied lhat “no other profession 
is parallel ” 

“Education is vital for the nation's future, 
and no other profession has that responsibil- 
ity." she said. “And tenure is not a sinecure for 
lire. Firing can be done, but with due process." 

Students, for their pan. say that while the 
knowledge that professors gain from research 
and publishing should, in theory, come back to 
them in the classroom, frequently it does not 
work out that way. “The mission of colleges 
and universities is to educate, and we fed that 
more time ought to be spent teaching and less 
ihn e publishing." said Stephanie Blooming- 
dale, a spokesman for the United States Stu- 
dent Association, a Washington-based group 
that represents student interests. “In big uni- 
versities, more and more classes are taught by 
graduate students, and professors, who often 
have no more than two office hours per week, 
have little lime for students. And the feedback 
we’re getting from students across the country 
is that the situation is getting worse.” 

Seeking a solution to the problems sur- 
rounding the tenure system is difficult because 
all of me players seem to want something 
different: The professors want job security but 
not the relentless pressure to publish: adminis- 
trators want a freer hand in weeding out costly, 
ineffective faculty, but see the need for at least 
some type of job security to foster research; 
and students want star professors who also 
have time for them. 

An alternative to the current seLup, say 
some; could be a unionized contract system 
similar to that in professional sports, where 
each faculty member negotiated his or her own 
terms with the university, but with a minimum 
contract length of, say, five years. Naturally, 
an impressive publishing record might enhance 
a professor's bargaining position for a long- 
term contract, as would good reviews from 
students, whose opinions are typically asked 
for when a candidacy for tenure arises. But a 
lengthy contract might be on the order of 15 
years, not 30 or 40. 

Meanwhile, the only thing that all factions 
seem to agree on is that the world of academia, 
perhaps not unlike the military, is its own 
unique type of society. 

“If you turn the college campus into a corpo- 
raur- world-style rat race, where every professor 
is constantly looking over his shoulder," said 
the East Coast university provost, “that would 
hurt students most of aU.”

Temple’s Coach 
Is Suspended 

Compiled by Our Staff From Dapatdta 

University suspended its basketball 
coach, John Chancy, for one mine, 
a day after be bad publicly threat- 
ened to. kill the Massachusetts 

coach, John Calipari. 

Chaney apologized after his out- 
burst on Sunday following the 
Owls' 56-55 loss to I3cb-raoked 
Massachusetts, but Temple’s presi- 
dent, Peter Uacouras, still sus- 
pended Chaney from the Owls’ 
game Wednesday night at St. Bona- 

“Coach Chaney overstepped the 
line this lime," Uacouras said in a 
statement “I believe the university 
must pursue the highest standards 
in competition, and even his sin- 
cere apology, he agrees, is insuffi- 
cient in these circumstances.'' 

It was the first time Chaney has 
been disciplined in 12 years during 
which he led the Owls to nine Na- 
tional Collegiate Athletic Associa- 
tion tournament appearances. 

In a statement released by Tem- 
ple's athletic department Monday, 
Chaney extended his apology “to 
everyone for yesterday’s unfortu- 
nate incident following the basket- 
ball game — to the Atlantic 10 
Conference, the University of Mas- 
sachusetts, the teams, those per- 
sons who were present and those 
who witnessed the incident, every- 

Chaney planned no farther com- 
ment, said Temple’s assistant 
sports information director, Gerry 
Ernig. A Temple spokeswoman, 
Harriet Goodbeart, said Liacouras 

would not comment beyond his 
Ift-page statement. 

The Atlantic 10 commissioner, 
Ron Bertovich. said Monday that 
an investigation was being con- 
ducted by the conference. He has 
the right to require more than the 
one-game suspension. 

None of the Top 25 teams played 
Monday night. In some major 
games. New Mexico State moved 

closer to the Big West Conference 

title with a 67-66 victory over 
UNLV, and Artur as Kanushovas 
scored 22 points as Set on Hall beat 
St John's, 67-57, in the Big East- 

On Sunday, Chaney burst into 
Cali pan’s postgame news confer- 
ence and accused him of trying to 
intimidate the officials in the loss. 

Chaney then charged the podi- 
um where Cali pari stood. Three 
Massachusetts players moved 
quickly to intervene and Chaney 
was restrained before reaching Ca- 
li pari- 

“m kill you,” Chaney was plain- 
ly beard to say. “You remember 

He added that he would have his 
players confront Massachusetts 
players when the teams play in 
Philadelphia on Feb. 24. 

Last month, Chaney was part of 
a controversy over a threatened 
boycott by the Black Coaches As- 
sociation over what it perceived as 
unfair treatment of black students 
through scholarship reductions and 
admissions standards. Chaney had 
threatened to walk out. but the as- 
sociation later called off the boy- 
cott. (AP, NTT)

R OME — Funny things happen on the way to the 
OUmpica In the arena where thelast World Gap 
final almost died of organized boredom in 1990, there 
was a game on Sunday that had thratw fim, goals, 
Lazio of Rome outplayed Cagh’arito the tune of 4-0-

For an English visitor there was a bonus. It was rare 
— exceptionally rare — to enjoy watching an English- 
man orchestrate play of this quality. 

Paul Gascoigne, completing only his third full 90- 
minute performance this season, was- the star. His 
command of passing, inventiveness and authority 
were such that every player on his team moved when 
and where he wasted them ta 

The respect those players have for him must be 
enormous. They know Gascoigne can fluctuate be- 
tween maestro and down, they know he has spent two 
years trying to bring back the showmanriiip he almost 
destroyed by recklessness. 

Yet here were Italian. Dutch and Croatian team- 
mates — a combined market vabe of 550 million — 
responding to his touch. 

Almost beyond befief, Cocaine stole the hearts of 
an Italian crowd while an Italian forward, Bcppc 
Signori, scored a oo ns o ruma tc hat-trick. 

This, surely, was Sgaarfs day? Not so. Not- even

Jordan ’s Public Workout: 
A Lot of Dirt and Pop-Ups 

The Aaodaud Pros 

SARASOTA, Florida — A closed-door baseball intrigue ended on 
Tuesday as the former National Basketball Association star Michael 
Jordan went an display at spring training for the first time. 

Jordan took three rounds of batting practice. He didn't look good 
as he took about 100 swings off the Chicago White Sox batting 
practice pitcher, Mike Maziarka, a left-hander, and Roly DeArmis, a 
right-hander who will be a bullpen catcher for the team. 

“I have to work on my hitting every day” Jordan said. *Tve 
improved. I can feel it I’ve been given the correct fundamentals. It's 
just a matter of getting the fundamentals down." 

Jordan's tno-hour workout included shagging flics, fielding ground- 
ers and r unning drills. When he made contact, he mostly beat the ball 
into the dirt around home plate or popped it into the batting cage. 

A crowd of 250 journalists attended Jordan’s workout On Thurs- 
day, fans will be allowed into the ballpark for the first time. 

The $1 Million Noncommissioner 

Ne*i York Tuna Service 

NEW YORK — The man who 
would not be co mmissi oner is earn- 
ing more than the last man who was 

Bud Selig, who has served as act- 
ing commissioner for 17 months but 
has refused the title of commission- 
er, has a 51 mQlion-a-year salary, 
several men in and dose to major- 
league baseball said Monday. 

One of the men said that the 
Executive Council had approved 
Sdig's salary in September, after he 
had been in the job for a year. 

Selig, the owner of (be Milwaukee 

Brewers, neither confirmed nor de- 
nied the SI million figure, declining 
to «iisdus the matter. The salary, 
though, is the highest ever for the 
person running the major leagues. 

Fay Vincent, who was commis- 
sioner from Sept. 13, 1989, until he 
resigned under pressure Sept. 7, 
1992, earned 5650,000 a year. 

Selig is chairman of the owners’ 
Executive Council, a position that 
makes him acting or de facto com- 

Despite ihe urging of a large bloc 
of owners, Selig has steadfastly de- 

clined to accept election to the po- 
stion on a formal basis, but contin- 
ues to be drilling to serve an an 
interim basis. 

A search committee worked for 
nearly a year to find a successor to 
Vincent — and Selig — but at an 
owners’ "wiring on Jin. 19, the 
owners derided they were not going 
to de er a new commissioner until 
they completed labor negotiations 
with the players. 

Sdig is therefore expected to re- 
main the acting cammissicner for 
at least the remainder of this year 
and most likely well into next year. 

took a free kick and, as if he were Uri 
spoons, applied deception to tbeffigbt of the ball so 
that it straightened, then dipped, made the far post. 

Gascoigne ran to the toaddme^ to mfmmirJr the 
statuesque pose that the boxer Chris Eubank affects in 
the ring. “Adore me — now!” was the implicit gesture. 

At the final whistle, he chmg Hke a chimpanzee from 
a crossbar, waving with one hand to the fans. 

Gazzamaxtia. is back, than a month., after the 
grapevine was heavy with rumor that Lazio was look- 
ing for a buyer for the errant star, with his nguries, his 

wind into a microphone or break a photographer’s 
nose with a punch. 

In a rational moment on Monday, Gascoigne de- . 
nounced his most foolish antics and pledged to control 
his sufficiently to make the most of his gift. 

We shall see: We hope so. It woold be nice to nave 
shown Gascoigne thelast hue of the last letter David 
Niven sent to this columnist 

“Please,” be wrote, “stop the potential great foot- 
ballers erf our country bemg such so-and-so prima 

donnas!" •- 

That, from an actor who had jetted around the 
Hollywood set more often than nararig ne has had 
operations, was penned when Gascoigne was 12. 

M AYBE THAT is why. referees are "becoming 
public figures in their own light. Gianni Bes- 
flhm, an imposing man with a haircut sharper than a 
GTs, also cuts fine jewchy. 

. . . Kcrhngl Coflina. strikingly, bald for a man in his 
eady 30s, is renowned for sending off the Italian 
na tional captain, ?ranco BaresL two minnte&af ter the 
start.., ./: 

Newspapers assess referees as they do players. Gaz- 
zetta defio Sport scored Baldds ana Collins seven on 
Sunday, as it did Pierluigi Pairetto, who issued two red 
and six yellow cards in Atlanta’s 1-1 tie with Roma. 

' ^Gaaetm rated Beschm 5.5, bmVirgprioQuartiiccfo 
was lowest, with 4 points. 

Ultimately 'it is the opinion of Paolo Casarin that 
counts. Aretired referee, he is now Italy’s overlord and 
employs assessors to monitor every performance. Ca- 
sarm can make or break referees. 

.He also conditions FIFA’s attempts to enforce more 
attractive play. The outlawed back pass, according to 
Casarm, has prevented goalkeeper's from wasting 
timgj so the bail is in play 8 percent longer per game. 

European referees have just heard in. Rome — r and 
the World Cup referees wifi be told at a symposium in 
Dallas next month— to gjvc forwards, not defenders, 
the benefit of the doubt on tight of fade decisions. 

“Why should defenses get the benefit in controver- 
sial moments?” asks Casarin. “Ids not instructed by 
die laws of die game. At the World Cup, we will tefi 

refer ee s and finesmen. that a player , most tie given 
offfflde only if it is 101 percent he is c

Hie German team reportedly 
brought more than 30,000 titen of 
beer with it to the Games, and in 
doing so eluded customs inspection 
in Norway, where alcoholic bever- 
ages are expensive and heavily taxed 
because of a stale-wide monopoly. 

Hie Germans traditionally set 
np a beer hall near the Iqge ate of a 
major championship. The French 
hare brought cases of champagne 
for their team, and for a dub where 
guests are entertained nightly. 

Brit fret not for the state monop- 
oly. Tbe arrival of thousands of 
journalists is lilJeharomer has seat 
alcohol sales soaring. Officials re- 
port that, since the Gaines began, 
sales were running at more than 
four times the normal January rate. 

• Austria has sent bobsled driver 
Gerhard Rainer home because he 
tested positive in a routine pre- 
Games drug test It was beb eyed to 
be the first positive drag test in that 

A team official, Roland Jold, 
said Tuesday that Raiser, 33, a 
poticeman from Innsbruck who 
fists his hobby as “Being lazy,” had 
been caught using the banned ana- 
bolic steroid metandienoDe to help 
get over an iqury. 

“He was seat home on Saturday, 
the day of tbe opening ceremony — 
and tire day we got the test result," 
Jokl said. 

Rainer told the Austrian news 
agency APA that “bobsledding has 

not made me happy," and an- 
nounced his retirement. 

• Unusually heavy traffic has 
doubled the air pollution in Lille- 
hammer. But. officials said, there 
was no health hazard: The air was 
still fardeaoer than in many Euro- 
pean cities. 

• The Norwegians, with two 
gold medals and three silvers as of 
Monday, have been poking fun at 
Nordic rival Sweden, which has yet 
to win even a bronze. “Norway 
leads, Sweden equal with Fiji,” the 
daily newspaper Dagbladet trum- 
peted Tuesday. 

It also offered a free holiday — 
in the sun, rather unpatriotically — 
for whoever guesses Norway’s final 
medal tally at the Games. 

• The German women's biath- 
lon team moved into the Olympic 
village a day earlier than planned, 
and quickly, after the heating broke 
down in their training camp out- 
side LiHehammer. 

The five- women team, which in- 
dudes reigning Olympic 15-lrilo- 
meter champion Antje Miscrsky 
and world champion Petra Scfaaaf, 
arrived in lUkaammer on Mon- 

• US. Vice President A1 Gore 
has dropped {dans to visit LiHe- 
hammer dining the Games. “He 
wanted to come but couldn't fit it 
into his sdrednle," a US. embassy 
official said in Oslo.

Russia’s Egorova Surprises Herself 
With Her Fourth Olympic Gold 

Agcnce FraB-Pmc 

Lyobov Egorova of Russia skfing to victory in the 5-Hkweter race. 


By Christopher Clarey 

JVm V«i Tirntn Senice 

many Winter Olympic maveos who 
have yet to learn the name Lyubov 
Egorova, consider the following: 

Sooja Henie and Jcan-Claude 
Kdly each won three Olympic gold 
medals. Alberto Tcnnba and Bon- 
nie Blair hare won three each, too. 
Egorova, a soft-spoken Russian 
cross-country skier from Sl Peters- 
burg. has now won four. 

Her most recent came Tuesday 
in the 5-k3ometcr classical event, 
which is as dose as the cross-coun- 
try world gets to a sprint. And 
when she sailed across the finish 
line, looked up at the big electronic 
scoreboard and realized that vic- 
tory was assured, the most decorat- 
ed winter athlete competing in 
Norway covered her face with both 
hands and began to ay'. 

“I just didn't expect to win." she 
explained later with hdp from a 
translator. “I really didn’t.” 

Those were startling words from 
a skier who has now raced in seven 
Olympic events and won medals in 
all seven; she has three silvers to go 
with her golds. Bui Egorova, a re- 
flective 27-year-old who is studying 
to be a teacher, was apparently 
quite unsettled after finishing sec- 
ond in Sunday's opening event, the 
15-kiIomeler freesty le, which was 
won convincingly by Italy’s M an- 
uria Di Cento. 

“1 was not in a good frame of 
mind psychologically during that 
race," said Egorova, who has com- 
plained in recent weeks about tbe 
lack of money available for training 
in Russia. “1 was very nervous be- 
fore the start today. 1 knew this was 
a really derisive race for me, and 
from the fust meters, I knew I bad 
to give everything to have a 

it helped that, as the 60tb starter 
in the 62-woman field, she knew 
exactly what needed to be done. Di 
Cemi who had gone out 43d. was 
already well on ber way to laying 
down the time to beat of 14:283. In 
spite of her nerves, Egorova quickly 
look command, recording the fast- 
est split time at \3 kilometers and 
then increasing that advantage over 
the last three kilometers. 

The relentless Russian finished 
in 14:08.8, nearly 20 seconds faster 
than her considerably more expan- 
sive Italian rival, who gave Egorova' 
no fewer than four kisses on tbe 
cheek between the finish line and 
the flower ceremony. 

The extrovert and the introvert 

probably will duel for gold again 
os Thursday in tbe second stage of 
this race, the 10-kilometer freestyle 
pursuit. Unlike a regular cross- 
country event, the pursuit start will 
be based on Tuesday’s final stand- 
ings (Egorova will start 193 sec- 
onds ahead of Di Cema and so on). 
Tbe first racer to finish will be the 

“It’s not too much of a gap," said 
Di Centa of the 19.5 seconds. “It 
wifi not be so easy, but it will be a 
good bunting day." 

The bronze medalist Tuesday 
was Maija-Liisa Kirvesniemi. a 38- 
year-old mother of two. Kirves- 
niemi first competed in die Olym- 
pics in 1976 in Innsbruck. She 
peaked in 1984. winning three gold

medals and a bronze in Sarajevo- 
Unlike her peers. KJrvcsniemi kept 
skiing, but she failed to win an 
Olympic medal in Albertville. 

“After my catastrophe in Albert- 
ville. I got lots of bad letters from 
people in Finland asking why I was 
still in tbe games because I was not 
so young anymore." she said. "This 
bronze medal means more to me 
than everything except tbe first 
gold in Sarajevo because it shows 
that 1 can stUl do it" 

■ Moguls Too Easy? 

Olympic champion Edgar Gro- 
Spiroo of France saw his freestyle 
moguls title come under threat 
Tuesday and complained that the 

LiUehammer moguls course was 
too easy. Reuters reported. 

Grospiron shot down the 50-odd 
bumps of the 223-meier Olympic 
course in 23.72 seconds, almost two 
seconds faster than Canadian world 
champion Jean-Luc Brassard. 

But two near-perfect jumps by 
Brassard cm his way down, includ- 
ing his trademark “Cossack.” gave 
him the best score in the dinSna- 
tion round for Wednesday’s finals. 

“This course is so simple that 
anyone can look good," Grospiron 

The scores, based on a mixture of 
overall style, speed and the racers’ 
performance in two trick jumps, 
decide the starling order for 
Wednesday and nothing rise.

§533 That Slippery Luge Track Strikes Again 

iJSSl Italy's Weissensteiner Takes the Lead, While America's Warren Takes a Spill 

ses Norway's final .. . , „ , .. . v 

The Associated Press 

Wrissenstemer of Italy broke tbe 
track record on her first run and 
was fastest again on the second 
Tuesday, taking the first-day lead 
m the women's Olympic luge com- 

Her record time of 48.740 helped 
her to a two- run total of 1 minute, 
37.630 seconds — .252 faster than 
1992 bronze medalist Susi Erd- 
mann of Germany. Andrea Tag- 
werker of Austria stood third, an- 
other .236 behind. 

Two more runs Wednesday wOJ 
deride the gold medal 

The treacherous trade caused 
problems for some of the (op 
lugers. Gain Kohlisch of Germany, 
the World Cup champion, slid cau- 

tiously and stood sixth, .681 behind 
the leader. 

Defending Olympic gold medal- 
ist Doris Neuner of Austria was 
12th, 1.418 seconds off the pace. “I 
made errors in both my tuns." 
Neuner said.” 

Neu net's sister, Angelika, the sil- 
ver medalist at Albertville, had bet- 
ter luck. She was fourth. .089 out of 

Erdmann was tbe only racer be- 
sides Weissensteiner to make both 
runs faster than 49 seconds. 

"Gerda is in top form.” Erd- 
mann said. “It’s totally clear that it 
will be tough against her.” 

The US. women had the same 
kind of trouble on Turn 13 of tbe 
Hunderfossen course that had sent 

Duncan Kennedy's sled slipping 
and sliding out of medal contention 
a day earlier. 

Erin Warren was the first victim. 
She was not expected to win a medal 
in her first Olympiad. But she. like 
Kennedy, was on the run of her life, 
seemingly headed for the sixth-best 
time of tee first tun. 

Then came 13. Warren, the ninth 
racer, lost control at almost the 
same spot Kennedy did. Her crash 
was even more spectacular. She 
bounced off tee walls three times, 
flipped upside down and slid face- 
down with her sled draped across 
her shoulders. 

When she came to a halt, Warren 
sat up. shook ber head and groggfly 
made her wav off the track. She 

suffered some bumps and ice bums. 

Cammy Myier was the next vic- 
tim. Myler, tee top remaining hope 
for the U.S. team's first Olympic 
medal in the sport, was eighth after 
her first trip down the snaking 16 
cum course. 

But on run No. 2, again at 13, she 
bounced off one wall and bad to 
put a fool down, and lost a chance 
for a medal. Her combined total for 
the two runs — 1 minute; 38.964 
seconds — dropped her to 11 th, 
more than a second behind Weis- 

‘T had a real good run going up 
io there.” said Myler, who became 
the first U.S. woman luger to win a 
World Cup race when she took tee 
season finale at Allenbeig, Germa- 
ny, last monte.

Late Comebacks Getting lo Be

Tuesday night against Slovakia in Spite 
of a sputtering offense that could spelt 
trouble against tougher opponents. 

For the .Americans, plagued by sloppy 
passes all night, it was Lhe same kind of 
comeback they had mounted against 
France in Sunday’s opening round, 
when they fought back for a 4-4 tie. . 

Comparing his team to “a high wire 
acu" U.S. coach Tim Taylor expressed 
frustration with its passivity and its fail- 
ure to connect on key power plays. He 
fears that while disaster was averted 
against mediocre France and last-seeded 
Slovakia, his young charges may not be 
so fortunate against their next oppo- 
nents, Canada and Sweden, two modal 
contenders that have already notched 

“I'm very proud of the way that we 
came back from a two-goal deficit in two 
consecutive games." Taylor said. “It 
shows we bave a lot of heart What we 
have to work on is not getting ourselves 
in that position." 

Trailing 3-1 early in the third period, 
the Americans got a break when Slova- 
kia’s veteran star Peter Stastny was 
slapped with a seven-minute penalty for 
high-sticking and punching an oppo-

14 seasons in the National Hockey 
League and became its 17th all-tirae

manpower advantage that they quickly 

The U.S. closed the gap to 3-2 when 
Peter Gavaglia knocked in a goal on a 
pass from Mark Beaufait during a chaotic 
scrum in the front of the net Less than 
iwp minutes later. John Lilley tied the 
game with a slap shot from the right face- 
off circle that nicked the upper corner of 
the goal post and tumbled into the net 

Taylor praised U.S. goalkeeper Garth 
Snow for making “some very big saves at 
crucial times’' even though he surren- 
dered three goals on 33 shots taken by 
the Slovaks. Snow was making his Olym- 
pic debut after teammate Mike Dun- 
barn, one of two holdovers from the 1992 
Games, gave up four goals on only 14 
shots by the French.

The American team, which averages a 
little over 22 years in age, represents a 

team the match. “It was ua unlucky 
accident," he said. “We are fortunate 
not lo lose.” 

Slovakia had opened the tournament 
with a tie against Sweden. 

sharp departure from previous squads 
that were known for their brutish and 

cumbersome style under former coach 
Dave Peterson. Taylor has emphasized 
speed and finesse in the belief that such 
qualities are better adapted to the larger 
Olympic rink and leading European op- 

But at the start of Tuesday's game, the 
Americans appeared sluggish and disori- 
ented. They lost the puck frequently and 
seemed perplexed by the crisp passes 
and fluid movements of Slovakia's team, 
which has only two players from the 
1992 Czechoslovakia team that won the 
bronze medal. Slovakia became inde- 
pendent only a year ago and was seeded 
last in the Olympics baa use it has never 
competed before. 

The Americans scored the opening 
goal after 10 minutes of play when Jef- 
frey Lazaro flicked a wrist shot through 
the legs of Slovakia’s goalkeeper Eduard 
Hartmann, who had ventured out of the 
net to uy to intercept the puck. The 
Slovaks answered three minutes later 
with a wrist shot from the left circle by 
Lubomir Kolnik and went ahead in the 
second period on Siastny’s goal. 

In the third period. Lhe Slovaks ap- 
peared on their way to an easy victory 
after Robert Svehla fired in a slap shot 
from the blue line. Meanwhile, the 
Americans seemed reluctant to press the 
attack, veering away from the goal even 
when they had two-on-one and three-on- 
rwo opportunities. 

At one point. Taylor wrung his hands 
and bellowed “just shoot the puck" 
when Lilley took it close to the goal and 
then backed away for a pass instead of 
closing in for the kill. 

Only when Siasmy became embroiled 
in a near-brawl with nine minutes to go 
did the Americans snap out of the dol- 
drums and exploit their chances suffi- 
ciently to salvage a tie. 

Slovakia's coach Jan Mitosinka ac- 
knowledged that Stasiny's behavior was 
a turning point that could have cost his 

Sweden 4, Italy 1: The Swedes re- 
mained unbeaten but unimpressive until 
the third period. 

The second-seeded Swedes scored 
twice in the first Tour minutes of the 
period, dominated the rest of it and beat 
Italy after struggling to the tie with Slo- 
vakia in the opener. 

Sweden is l-O-I in the five-game pre- 
liminary round. Italy. 0-2 here, finished 
last in Die 1992 Winter Games. Eight of 
the 12 teams advance to the single-elimi- 
nation quarterfinals. 

Hakan Loob and Mats Naslund, two 
former Stanley Cup champions, set up 
three goals for a country with three world 
championships in the lost seven years but 
no Olympic championships ever. 

Sweden didn’t score until 26 seconds 
were left in the first period. Loob. a 
member of the 1989 NHL champion Cal- 
gary team, passed the puck from behind 
the goal line to Pa trie Kjrilberg, who slid 
a 40-foot f 112-raeier) slap shot through 

the pads of Bruno Campese in goal 


Italy tied the game on Bruno ZamUo's 
staorthanded goal at 4: 18 or the second 
period past goalie Hakan Algotsson. 

Frederik S tillm an put Sweden ahead 
to stay at 17:03. Loob dropped a back- 
hand pass from the left circle and Still- 
man put a soft 40-footer to the left of 
Campese as three Swedes and two Ital- 
ians clogged the slot. 

In the third period, Sweden oatshot 
Italy. 16-3, and Campese was outstand- 
ing, despite allowing two quick goals. 

Naslund, wbo won the Stanley Cup 
with Montreal in 1986, passed to'Pauik 
Juhlin, wbo scored on a high 25-fooler 
1:10 into the third period Magnus 
Svensson's power-play slap shot at 3:52 
ended the scoring. 

Sweden has finished better than third 
just twice in the Olympics, winning sil- 
ver medals in 1928 and 1964. It took the 
bronze in 1980. 1984 and 1988. It went 
into the 1 9v2 Games as the lop seed but 
finished a disappointing fifth.

pairs figure skating Tuesday night, beat- 
ing fellow Russians Natalia Mi$hku- 

tienok and Artur Dmitriev. 

Gordeeva and Grinkov, the 1988 gold 
medalists who returned to Olympic com- 
petition after four years of skating pro- 
fessionally. drew a perfect 6.0 for artistic 
impression from the Russian judge, de- 
spi te two mistakes by Grinkov on jumps. 
The rest of the husband and wife team’s 
artistic impression marks were 5.9s. 

Skating right before them. Mishku- 
tienok and Dmitriev put on an almost 
flawless program, but the marks for the 
1992 Olympic champions ranged from 
5.6 to 5.9. 

Canada's Isabelle Brasseur and Lloyd 
Eisler. the reigning world champions, 
took the bronze medal, matching the 
bronze they won in two years ago in 
Albertville. France. 

Grinkov and Gordeeva were in first 
place after Sunday night's technical pro- 
gram. with Mishkutienok and Dmitriev-

When the pros — notably Gordeeva

added one more challenge. Brasseur and 
Eisler led off the last group, composed of 
the top four pairs, so the three Russian 
couples knew exactly how well they had 
to skate to beat Lhe Canadians. 

Eisler was so annoyed with the draw 
on Sunday night that he kicked the wall 
and cursed. Later, he said his outburst 
was only because he came too late to 
make the draw himself. 

Shishkova and Naumov skated last. 

“Everyone coming in is human, and 
we can all make mistakes." Eisler said.

sound of. a huge machine drilling boles 
into the mountain! It is & quail moun-

Tbey are reared. It istheir dream house. 
When they heard the driving cease, they 
would stop whatever they wine doing 
and brace themselves agamst.the wall. 

“Kaboon! — Kahdoml — Kafwtwi!". 
Aud Pedersen is saying, her fists, raised 
in dfscnption, her shoulders touching 
the walLInade the monniain, the dyna- 
mite had beenarranged like firecrackers' 
tied together. The initial blast would set 
off the next blast, whidi set off the next 
blast, and the next. Thetown of Gjovik 
had decided to build its new Olympic 
hockey arena inside the moon tain. No 
one had ever dared attempt such an 
-architectural conquest. A hockey arena 
inside a man-made cave? Gjovik would 
be the talk of the entire wood. Even the 
dynamite was a special type, designed . 
for minimal vibration. 

But on top of the mountain, Aud and •„ 
Odd would be shouting at each other 
throughout the explosions. “The lamp, 
get lhe lamp!" Aud would yell, but Odd 
could never catch the lamp . Then he 
would see an antique plate vibrating off 
of an end table; but Aud could never 
catch the plate. The explosions fell like 
they went on for five 'minutes some- 
times. Eventually they learned to- stay, 
braced against the wall, refusing to 
catch anything unless it was falling into 
their arms, which it so&etimes did. - 

The explosions began m the spring of 
1991 and they didn't stop until nme

mountain was for sale! It is bull like a

“It was very quiet," - And Pedersen 
says, her smile the same as when she

laugh at this now. “Yes, it is built right 
under my apple tree out there,” Odd 
says, pointing out the wmdow. They 
survived the erosions ijecessaij to in- 
stall a swimming pool and they went 
about making the home theirs.

to arrive in this favored land of frozen f 
reindeer salami, and people blindled and madfid like 
burglars against the add, there will be included in her 
baggage, on paper or in her head. Grant Court Judge 
Patrick D. Gilroy’s Judgment of Dismissal issued last ' 
Saturday aftemoonln Clackamas County, 'Oregon. ' 

It is her ticket to skate in the WiaiarOfympics. But 
with it comes further evidence that a new world is 
dawning in sports, ‘ p 
and that athletes in Vantaoa 
America — and , ~ ■ 

perhaps those un- ■ • 

der mternatioBal ; 

governing bodies, as well — n»y beassmedthey will 
be treated fairly, - -subject to the same democratic 
laws and judgments as anyone else. Sports, in other 
words, are not above the law. Not even the Oly mpics . - 
The days may be dwindling ^ when athletes are oust- 
ed arbitrarily, amen, say, a swimmer may be dismissed . 
from the Olympic beam by an imperious sportsezar 
liar drinking champagne on a snip, or a printer 
banned for a positive drug test that he asserts was a- 
laboratory error... 

The 115. Olympic Committee had leveled seven 
administrative charges against Harding regarding . 
sportsmanship and ethical, code violations and had 
scheduled a hearing on her participation hi the Olym- 
pia. She responded with a S25 nriDion suit against the ... 
USOC, In settling die dispute, Judge Gilroy acknowl- 
edged that the case was “difficult 
; ^bc USOC has the right and obligatio n to o versee 
and discipline -certain conduct erf its Olympic ath- 
letes,” he said. Bat, Ik added, ‘Tonya Harding has the 
right to a fair and impartial hearing rega r ding claimed 
ethical violations ana the right to prepare adequately 
for same." 

! it' seems apparent Hat the judge did not want to . 
upset altogether the ability of sports groups to proper- 
ty sanction athletes for, say, using an improper skate 
Or sled. But when the matter is larger, infringing on. 
true due process, or the principle that one is innocent 
DntS proved guilty, then it is one fora higher author- 
ity. In this case, the courts. The sense of it was that the 
USOC, acting as judge and jury, with conceivably 
private agendas, could not necessarily be expected to 
administer “a fair and impartial beating. 7 ’ ' 

■ Some of the reasoning behind this, study, is that- 

sports such as the Olympics are now beyond games. 
The. Olympics are big business. The host cities and 
nationsstandto make millions of dollars in profit, 
manufacturers put logos on athletes’ uniforms, ancon- 
tested professional athletes like Witt mid Boitano and 
the Dream Team are included, and there are those who 
may dream of making a fortune from their gold

fCVTTFJELL — The U5. ski 
team came to the 17th Winter 
Olympics with the dimmest of 
medal prospects, but for the third 
straight day an American romped 
down the slippery slopes to unex- 
pected success. 

It was Diana Roffe-Steinroucr’s 
turn Monday as the diminutive 
New Yorker Vcro her first race in 
nine years — yes. nine years — 
beating 56 rivals in the sup ex-giant 
slalom to get the second American 
gold medal of these young Games. 

That’s the most grids for U.S 
.Alpine skiers since 1984. with 10 of 
the 12 events still to go. How big a 
surprise is that? 

"It’s the most amazing thing I 
ever saw.” said the women’s do 
coach. Paul Major. “There’s a fever 
catching in our athletes. Anything 
can happen." 

Anything jusi had. Roffe-Stein- 
rotter. silver medalist in giant sla- 
lom at (he 1992 Games in Albert- 
ville, France, rode here on the 
wobbly wheels of her worn season, 
ber top finish so far being a 13th in 
the giant slalom is Morzine. 

Her record was so poor she lay 
outside the pool of 15 top entrants 
who draw for the best starting slots 
for the super-G, winch is a shorter 
version of the downhill with wider 
turns. Then Roffe-Steinroner, in 
the second draw, had the misfor- 
tune to win bib No. 1. meaning she 
went off before anyone even tested 
the steep, icy curves. 

Noone likes No. 1, with no train- 
ing runs permitted and no track to 
follow, and Rcffe-Steinrotter said 
she was “sick-io-my-stomach ner- 
vous” staring down from the start 
house m the cold morning sun- 
shine. She went out cautiously but 
hit her stride quickly and put to- 
gether the smoothest run of the 
day. with nary a flaw evident. 

“I was in the zone," she said. "It 
was like a waterfall" 

Which is how the UJ>. skiing 
juggernaut must be looking to Eu- 
ropean rivals. Fust it was Alaskan 
Tommy Moe swaggering in Sunday 
to win his first world -circuit race 
with a gold medal run in the men’s 
downhill; then Olympic novice 
Kyle Rasmussen and Moe finished 
2-3 in the first half of the downhill- 
/combined Monday, setting them- 
selves up for possible medals when 
that two-day race concludes Feb. 

Now comes low-ranking Roffe- 
Sleinrotter to lake the first wom- 
en’s super-G medal ever for a U S. 
Olympian. - But she had to wait 
awhile to cheer. 

Her time of 1 minute, 22.15 sec- 
onds looked reasonably solid after 
No. 2 starter Isolde Kostner of Ita- 
ly followed with a 1:22.45. But 
Roffe-StdnroLter said she had no 
idea she was firmly in the gold- 
medal hunt tiH a score more racers 
were down — some literally. 

Nine starters failed to finish as 
the sleep, twisting turns on the 
KvitffeU course — designed for 
men — took their toll. Several were 
ahead of Roffe-Steorotter’s pace 
when they spun out, including prer- 
ace favorites Katya Seizin ger of 
Germany, Alerika Dovzan of So- 
venia and Bibiana Perez of Italy, 
who smashed spectacularly 
through a set of gates. 

As rivals spun out or came up 
short, a crowd built around RcrfFe- 
Sieinrotter but she held off cele- 
brating until No. 35 Svetlana Gla- 
disebeva of Russia was across in 
1:22.44, beating Kostner by one-

It came at agood time, in her last 
go- 'round. Roffe-Steiorotler, 26.

without a victory since the World 
Championships in 1985. that she's

petitive riding but no more ski rac- 

Meantime, she's got another 
sun to go here in giant slalom, the 
event in which she won a silver 
medal two years ago at Albertville. 

“Maybe 1 shouldn't race m any- 
thing but the Olympics and world 
championships." she said, s milin g. 

Her coaches said 10 years of ex- 
perience gave RofTe-Steinrouer the 
impetus to push the safety envelope 
enough to win here and she agreed. 

“If you don’t risk all at the 
Olympics, you won’t be there at the 
end. I’ve been in enough Olympics 
to know that and do that, arid that 
was the difference more than any- 

The dazzling U-S. start has the 
Olympic community b uzzing . This 
was to be the year of American 
misery on the slopes. Sports Illus-

edition, predicting: “Slovenia, 
Luxembourg and New Zealand all 
have better chances to lake home 
more Alpine medals from Lillc- 
hammer than Uncle Sara's lead- 
footed snowplow brigade." 

Bui RofTe-Steinrouer said Moe’s 
victory in the first Alpine event 
Sunday got the team fired up. 

“What an inspiration." she said. 
“He’s on an unbelievable progres- 
sion. He wasn’t a favorite coming 
is but he skied brilliantly and 1 
said, ‘1 can do that, too.’ 

“There’s a real electricity in the 
air now." she said. “I train with 
these other gills every day and they 
know they can be faster than I am 
on a given day." 

Indeed, teammate Shannon No- 
bis. 22. was aglow after a 10th- 
piace finish Monday and Moe’s 
girlfriend. Megan Gerety. also 22, 
was romping down the hill with a 
shot at the top five when she 
crashed in sight of the finish line. 

Thai’s the spirit, said Major, the 
women’s coach. 

“We all knew it could happen, 
but it’s the most amazing thing to 
see someone who’s down and out 
come out and ski a gold-medal run. 
The men put a lot of pressure on us 
and now we’ve answered.

Russian’s Surprise 

The Associated Press 

LILLEHAMMER — Even when 
the Russians were pari of the Soviet 
sports juggernaut, their Alpine ski- 
ers went begging for respect. 

The splintering of the Soviet 
Union and the ensuing political 
turmoil did nothing to help Rus- 
sia’s struggling Alpine program. 

So it came as a shock when Svet- 
lana Gladiscbeva blazed out of ob- 
scurity Tuesday to snare the silver 
medal in the women’s super-G at 
the lillehanimer Games. 

“Now I can die happy." said her 
head coach. Leonid Tyagacfaev. 
“The dream of my life has been 

Gladiscbeva. 22. showed prom- 
ise three years ago with a bronze 
medal in the downMD at the World 
Championships in Saalbach. Aus- 
tria, but injuries were a factor in 
preventing any further progress. 

Uutil Tuesday. 

The Russian was the 35ib wom- 
an to start the super-giant slalom, 
long after the challenging course at 
Kvitfjdl had been churned up by 
the higher-seeded racers. 

Summoning up hidden reserves 
of power on the lower half of the 
course, Gladiscbeva edged out Ita- 
ly’s Isolde Kostner by one hun- 
dredth erf a second for the silver 
medal, .29 seconds behind winner 
Diana Roffe of the United States. 

“This is just incredible,” Gladis- 
cheva said "After each turn, I 
thought this is never going to work 
and now J made a mistake. What 
time will I finish in? Then I turned 
around and saw the results board 
showing I was second. It's fantas- 

The old Soviet Union produced 
only one Alpine medalist, back in 
1956 when Yevgenya Sidorova 

took third in the slalom at Cortina, 
Italy, in the all- amateur era. 

Soviet skiers have had several 
Top 10 Olympic finishes since then, 
including a sixth in the women’s 
slalom by Nadezhda Pauakeeva in 
slalom in 1980 and an eighth by 
Gladiscbeva in the 1992 downhill 

But while the handful of world- 
class Russian skiers train and com- 
pete in Western Europe, with help 
from Western sponsors, the grass- 
roots future of the sport back home 
is uncertain. 

Valentin Kemexov, a coach with 
the national Alpine skiing federa- 
tion. said about 35,000-40,000 ath- 
letes are being trained on a perma- 
nent baas. 

But many of the federation's best 
training camps — in western 
Ukraine, Central Asia, Kazakh- 
stan, Georgia and Armenia — are 
no longer available because of the 
breakup of the Soviet Union. 

The federation's main training 
grounds now are Kerovsk, above 
the Arctic Circle near Murmansk, 
and on Kamchatka peninsula in 
the Rustian Far East. 

Dombai, in the Caucasus moun- 
tains in Russia’s south, was the 
most fashionable ski resort in Sovi- 
et limes. Now, with the region a 
botbed of ethnic conflicts, its popu- 
larity has fallen sharply. 

Sergey Chistyakov . covering the 
Lille hammer Olympics for Russia’s 
Tass news agency, said Alpine tid- 
ing has few fans back home. 

“There are quite a few places to 
ski, and lots of amateur skiers,” he 
said. “ But professionally, it’s un- 
derdeveloped- h’s considered an 
elite sport, because the equipment 
and lift tickets are expensive."

Let ’s See, How About a Nancy Cookbook? 

The Associated Press 

HAMAR — If you're not yet tick of bear- 
ing about Nancy Kerrigan, brace yourself. 

Coming soon are her authorized and unau- 
thorized life stories made for television, a TV 
special, a video for sale or rental, a children's 
book, cameo acting roles, commercials, maga- 
zine ads, ber own ice show, her own line of 
clothing and anything else that can squeeze 
some bucks out of a bump on her knee and a 
bronze in the last Olympics. 

She may not win a medal next week, but 
she’s Disney’s new Snow White, just waiting 
for lawyers to finish the paper work on a 
seven-part deal that wfll dwarf anything Kristi 
Yamagochi got for winning the gold two years 


Kerrigan’s agent, Jerry Solomon, won’t say 
bow much Disney is patting up. only that it's 
“somewhere in the range’’ of S 500,000 to S10 
million. Thai’s a nice, big range. A source 
dose to Disney said the package —the autho- 
rized TV movie, children's book, TV special, 
video, commercials, bit acting roles and ap- 
pearances at Disney World — is guaranteed 
for about S2 million, pins royalties. 

Can’t get enough of her? Look for Kerrigan 
smiling for Seiko. Campbell Soup. Reebok, 
Ray-Ban, Xerox, Erian. And there are more 
on the way. 

“Coming into this Olympics, she was going 
to be the most marketable female athlete in 
the United States even if the incident in De- 
troit never happened," Solomon said. ”1 don’t 
know that the attack made her more market- 
able. It’s made ber mart famous, more recog- 
nizabJe.1 think a lot of these things were going 
to happen anyway. 

“Getting hit on the knee has generated one 
thing that we probably never would have done 
for a l o ng. long time, and that’s a made-for- 

teleyision movie, which is going to be more of 
a pain than anything else because it’s going to 
take time to work on iL It’s got to be done 
accurately. She won’t play herself, but she 
might skate in it." 

If it’s so much of a pain, why do it at all? 

“Because on the movie, I literally had 50 
offers," Solomon said. “It’s something we sort 
of had to do, because if we didn’t agree to do 
one, everyone’s going to do these unauthorized 
rates anyway. And so we want to have at teas 
ooe authorized vertion out there. Bui using that 
as the basis far die Disney deal then we ex- 
panded to do aD the other things that were 
much more important to us for her long-term 

Kerrigan is not motivated by money as 
modi as by a desire to perform in ice shows, 
Solomon said. 

She just happens to be the lucky beneficia- 
ry, he said, of circumstances larger than the 
sympathy she evoked and attention she re- 
ceived as (he victim of aplot involving Tonya 
Harding's former husband, bodyguard and 
two other men. And it’s Solomon's job to 
make sure Kerrigan cashes in, 

“As a bronze medalist in *92, she bad more 
ma rketing amadous than a lot of gold medal- 
ists have had in the past," be said. “I think it’s 
because the sport has risen to a pant where you 
have a lot of factras all happening at the same 
time. Tons of television coverage. Tremendous 
sponsorship interest A lot of consumer mter- 

“You’ve got companies that were putting 
money into men’s and women’s tennis, and 
we’ve done business with them for years, that 
are pulling out of that and putting their mon- 
ey in figure skating. The numbers on the 
television ratings afl support iL They’re going 

to get Super Bowl-type numbers for the ladies 
championship next week. That’s what’s driv- 
ing tins. And so Nancy Kerrigan comes along 
at the perfect time from an historical point of 
view in the business of figure skating." 

But Tonya Harding could have been that 
skater coming along at the perfect time. 

“If Tonya Harding had not been implicated 
in the attack on Kerrigan, if it had never 
happened and Harding had won the U.S. 
championships anyway, she would have been 
America's darling,'’ said Nye Lavalle of the 
Sports Marketing Group in Dallas. “She was 
perfect for a lot or companies if her image had 
not been tarnished. She would have been the 
girl from the wrong tide of the tracks over- 
coming everything. Everyday Americans 
could have identified with her, and she might 
have gotten deals with companies like Kmart, 
Walmart, Budwaser. Sears. 

“Harding also has a more interesting story 
to tefl in a movie. She’s more complex. Kerri- 
gan’s popularity will die off as soon as some- 
one else cooks along if she doesn’t win a 
medal," Lavalle said 

“But, of course, if Kerrigan wins the gold, 
tile’ll be bigger than them aJL" 

Lavalle agreed with Solomon that the 
booming popularity of figure skating is pull- 
ing sponsorship and endorsement dollars 
away from other sprats. 

“Any American ska ti ng star can expect to 
make SI.5 million to S2 million a year for at 
least four year by winninga bronze or stiver in 
the Olympics.” he said. “Mostly that’s from 
ice shows, not endorsements. Kemgan can 
probably expect to make about $10 million 
over the next four years, even if she doesn't 
win another medal. If she wins the gold she 
could pull in S3J million to 55 minion a

No Pie in Pie Town 

From Civil War to Bureaucratic Battles 

By David Margoiick 

Sew York Tima Service 

P IE TOWN, New Mexico — In 
New Mexico as in other places, 
naming towns is a quirky business. 
Some names honor people, like the 
Duke of Albuquerque. Others are 
linked to Catholicism, including 
Santa Fe and Las Cruces. .And one. 
Truth or Consequences, pays hom- 
age to a quiz show. But only this 
one ones its name to a dessert 
Conjuring up aromatic images of 
home and (ruck stop. Pie Town, a 
mile west of the Continental Di- 
vide, has always drawn people. In 
New Mexico's territorial days, 
some say. weary cowboys came 
there for sweet sustenance. 

Sporting it on a map in 1940, 
Russell Lee, a Farm Security Ad* 
ministration photographer, drove 
from Amarillo, Texas, and cap- 
tured the indomi lability and inter- 
dependence of its people, primarily 
homesteaders from Texas fleeing 
the Dust Bow] and the Depression. 

Curious tourists still forgo the 
more streamlined Interstate 40 for 
Route 60 to check out Pie Town. 
And every September, a thousand 
or more people go there for the Pie 
Festival, complete with pie-eating 
and pie* baking contests. 


The ‘‘Welcome to Re Town” sign 
at the city limits depicts a Boston 
cream pie and two others of uncer- 
tain lineage. But the sad truth is that 
a recent visitor could sot buy a 
single slice of pie in Pie Town. 

Finding people was almost as 
hard. The piquant smell of burning 

S inon wood, a ubiquitous sign of 
fe in New Mexico winters, is faint. 
The pie- shaped telescope on the 
edge of town, run by the National 
Radio Astronomy Observatory, 
probably picks up more activity in 
galaxies millions of light years 

The Pie Town to which Lee 
brought his Speed Graphic was 
poor but populated, and vital. It 
was a place without telephones or 
running water, but with all-night 
dances, community sing-alongs 
and a ‘‘literary society.” a place in 
which women in aprons fixed each 
other’s hair, and men in overalls 
built each other's dugout homes. 

There was even a main drag, with 
newly mimed signs for Dr. Pepper 
and Beech-Nut chewing tobacco 
hammered into its storefronts. 

Pie Town, about 100 miles (160 
kio meters) southwest of Albuquer- 
que. still has some communal trap- 
pings , including a volunteer fire de- 
partment. two churches and a 
Town Council. But almost from the 
day Lee left, it has been dying. 

First came World War II which 
lured many to munidoos plants 
elsewhere. Then came drought, 
which left (he land too dry to pro- 
duce pinto beans. 

Lee placed the 1940 population 
ai 250 families: Rand McNally 
found 85 people last year. 

Even its alluring name cannot 
protect Pie Town from the kind of 
creeping oblivion that is facing 
hamlets everywhere. Its hardiest 
commercial creatures were gas sta- 
tions. Now there are only carcasses 
— a Shell, a Mobil, a Phillips 66, 
condemned by the federal Environ- 
mental Protection Agency for leaky 
storage tanks. The nearest working 
gas stations are 22 miles away. Re 
Town’s 13 children learn their three 
R’s in other towns now that all the 
area’s one-room schools are gone. 

The Re Town Post Office is open 
only four hours day. Just about the 
only o’her going concern is H & R 
Block. “You can’t get anything in 
this town, but thev still expect you to 
pay your taxes,” said Crystal Leyba, 
29. who drives the local school bus. 

Many of the rough-hewn struc- 
tures of logs and mud that housed 
the homesteaders have been aban- 
doned. So has the former beanery, 
where farmers brought whatever 
they bad extracted from the be- 
grudging ground. 

"You have to do some pretty 
hard work to make a living in this 
country," said Roy McKee, 83, a 
Texan who came to Re Town in 
(937. and whose brother can be 
seen dancing a jig in one of Lee’s 
most famous photographs. 

Pie Towners tend to fall on the 
extremes of the economic spec- 
trum. Many are on welfare. Others 
ore wealthy ranchers. 

“The ones that stayed are 
wealthy now if they would admit 
it,” said James Hogg, an 89-year- 
old former teacher and rancher 
who arrived in 1931. "You never 
ask a cowman how many cattle be 
has, because he won’t tell you. He’ll 
tell his banker if he needs to borrow 
money, and he’s supposed to teD 
the tax people Supposed to.”

Iniemniena! Herald Tribune 

C HERBOURG. France — The people 
of Cherbourg refer to Ulane Bonnel 
as tree grande done — a great lady. She 
thinks equally highly of them. 

The two are engaged in an adventure to 
bring to light the famed confederate raid- 
ing ship, the CSS Alabama, which lies on 
the floor of the English Channel, seven 
nautical miles off Cherbourg. 

Bound heads the CSS Alabama Associ- 
ation, which is spearheading the effort to 
excavate the wreck with help from city and 
regional authorities and the French Navy. 

Bonnel who was born and brought up 
on the plains of northern Texas, also hap- 
pens to be one of France’s most distin- 
guished maritime historians. She is the 
first woman and the first foreign-born 
person to be elected to the 60-meraber 
Academic de Marine , a scholarly society 
set up by Louis XV in 1728. 

Ever since Bonnel announced the dis- 
covery of the ship during a scientific con- 
gress six years ago, the Alabama has been 
mired as much in bureaucracy as in Chan- 
nel sediment. 

While volunteer divers extricate the ship 
from the shifting sands, Bonnel is respon- 
sible for clearing the bureaucratic thickets. 
She played an important pan in setting up 
an arrangement that reconciles rival 
American and French claims to the ship, 
which was sank in a celebrated duel with 
the Union warship Kearsarge in 1862. 
During its 22-moo tc career as a raider, the 
Alabama took 65 prizes and virtually an- 
gle-handed drove the Union’s merchant 
fleet off the seas. 

The Alabama was boilt in Britain, 
manned mostly by Liverpool dock toughs, 
never tocchedport in North America, nev- 
er flew the Confederate flag and sank 
before it could be captured. And the 
French Navy discovered it well within the 
12-mile temtorial limit. Bat international 
law slates tbit a warship always belongs to 
the nation under whose flag it sailed. The 
United States, as the successor state to the 
Confederacy, therefore clamed it owned 
the wreck and everything on it. 

Under an executive agreement the two 
countries agreed that the United States 
does own tire ship but that France should 
keep the custody of iL In Washington, the 
wreck was placed under the jurisdiction of 
the National Park Service, Bonner said 
that it had down “no desire whatsoever to 
simplify things while the French want to 
get on with the excavation as quickly as 
possible in a race against time and tide. 

Having contributed heavily to the costs 
of the excavation, Cherbourg hopes to be 
able to put on permanent display many of 
the thousands of objects that divers expect 
to recover from the wreck. 






^ ' ' 3 ' ? 

i Cherbourg 

Bonnel says that the future of the ob- 
jects is very uncertain. She said she would 
like to sec an arrangement whereby the 
objects can be exchanged and rotated. 

Temporarily, at least some of the ob- 
jects recovered during excavations last 
summer will be shown to the public this 
year as part of a series of events in Cher- 
bourg marking the 50th anniversary of the 
Normandy landings and France’s ties with 
the United States. 

Bonnel said that virtually all the re- 
sources for excavating the' wreck have 
come from the French side, inrinriing help 
from the state electricity utility's EDF 
Foundation. It is cleaning and preserving 
most of the r ec ov ered artifacts from the 
Alabama, using an electrochemical lech- 
tuque devised to treat objects from the 

Titanic. The United States has no compa- 
rable fariliries. 

“The French want the project to suc- 
ceed and of course the United States 
would be happy for it to succeed as well 
but on the condition that the French pay 
for everything and do everything and fur- 
thermore do it according to U. S. rules,” 
Bonnel said. 

The Alabama is 230 feet (70 meters ) 
long and lies in 200 feet of water — the 
limit for free diving — in a green murid- 
ness penetrated by daylight only in high 
summer. Because fast currents race over 
the wreck, divers are able to spend only 15 
minutes at the bottom, twice every 24 
hours when the tides duny, duri n g a 
three-week period in midsummer. 

“You see very little above the sand.

except for the funnel sticking op like a

a dozen divers who work regularly on. the 

Bonnel was brought. into the project, 
winch is becked by the French Navy and 
the Minis&y of Culture, because being 
biling ual and hmaiinriBl, she was seen as. 
the ideal guide through the diplomatic 
difficulties. She has won praise for both 
sides for her determination to farther the 
scientific adjects of the excavation, while 
attempting to prevan political difficulties 
from interfering -with the research. . 

Bonnel studied history in West Texas 
State Univcrsty and started taking an 
interest' in naval .history when sbe jomed 
the U.S. Navy m World War n as; a 
professor at a yeoman training school far 
women in Washington, where she met her 
future husband, a naval doctor. ‘ ... 

She moved to Paris after hermaniagein 
1947, and studied for a doctorate at the 
Sorbonne, whereshe completed a disserta- 
tion on economic warfare ai sea from 1797- 
to 1815* becoming the first American to . 
study French naval axdnvts. 

She wrote books and scholarly articles, 
founded tbeFrench Commission of Mari- 
time History and worked for the library 

microfilming of Fro^w^wdSing 
with North American history. 

Talring ova the CSS Alabama Associa- 
tion helped relieve the loneliness she felt 
after her husband's death in- 1982. But it 
has also become a passionate scientific 

“There is stiR a tot to team about the 
Alabama,” be said. “As b. ship* it was 
outside die norms in every way.” 

It holds i nterest for marine historians 
and archaeologists because if came on the 
cusp between steam and sail and because 
it was one of the first vessels to be aimed 
.with explosive shells rather titan solid can- 
non bails. Although there is little hope of 
raising the wreck, the tikdy recovery of the 
propulsion unit and its Blakely hundred- 
pounder rifled gun would be mtyor events 
m marine archaeology. Divas will attempt 
to raise the gun at rite end of June. 

The events in Cherbourg this summer 
will for the first time gve tire public the 
chance to assess the huge amount of work 
that has already been carried oat on the 
Alabama and discover Bound's role is 
making it possible. She sect her accom- 
plishment as a kind of return of favors to 
her adopted country, and a homage to her 
late husband. 

“My career has been a realjoy to are,” 
she sud. “It has been a chaflengc and a 
satisfaction. If you had had the good for- 
tune of meeting my husband, I think you 
would understand better what my motiva- 
tion was.”
