Tension Easing, Seoul Rethinks Missiles

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegoviru — The 
threat of allied air strikes appeared to recede 
Friday as United Nations officials said ihev 
were optimistic that Bosnian Serbian forces 
would withdraw their heavy weapons from 
around Sarajevo before the Sunday night expi- 
ration of NATO's ultimatum. 

Snow-clogged roads slowed the movement of 
weapons from hills around the city. Bat tire 
Bosnian Serbian leader. Radovan Karadzic, 
promised that his forces would remot e their bis 
guns or place them under UN control by mid- 
night Saturday, 24 hours before the deadline set 
by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. 

“We intend to do that.” Mr. Karadzic said 
after meeting with the bead of the UN Protec- 
tion Force, Yasushi Akashi. “That is our de- 
clared deadline. We are approaching peace in 

The NATO allies welcomed the news, but 
they emphasized that the ultimatum still bdd. 

NATO is now involved whether il strikes or 
not • Afies reaffirm deteraunatioa to enforce 
oftimatim if Serbs don't comply. Page 5. 

The United States wanted that there would be 
no extension of the deadline and that prepara- 
tions continued for possible air strikes from 
NATO bases in Italy and aircraft carriers in the 
Adriatic Sea. 

Russia's senior negotiator on the former Yu- 
goslavia, buoyed by his apparent diplomatic 
success with the Serbs, warned NATO to set 
aside its ultimatum and said air strikes would 
lead to “all-out war” in Bosnia. 

The negotiator. Vi tali I. Churkin, also said he 
was confident that the Serbs would comply 
with their pledge to poll back. 

“In some potilica] statements. 1 see a desire 
to refer to theNATO ultimatum and the repeti- 
tion of certain threats made some time ago.” 
Mr. Churkin said in Moscow after his return 
from Bosnia. 

“Let me speak very frankly.” he said. ‘I 
know there are some people in NATO who are 
advocating toe strategy ‘strike and negotiate.’ 
In Bosma-Hcraegovina there can be no such 
thing as strike and negotiate. You can have 
either negotiations or an all-out war.” 

NATO, however, insisted that its ultimatum 
was in force until the withdrawal of the Bosnian 
Serbs was verified. 

“If Russian pressure will help, we welcome 
that,” a NATO spokesman said in Brussels. 
“But there should no misunderstanding: Any 
initiative wiD be assessed by its result.” 

The United Nations modified its upbeat as- 
sessment of the scale of toe Serbian withdrawal 
on Friday but said the pullback was continuing. 

“Over the last 24 hours we have seen a 
significant rate of increase in toe number of 
withdrawals, but toe description of them as 
convoys was misleading,” said Colonel William 
Aikman, toe UN militaro spokesman in Saraje- 
vo. He was referring to his comment Thursday 
that the Serbs were pulling back in convoys 
from their siege positions. 

Pushed to clarify toe issue of the pace of 
withdrawal on toe Serb side. Colonel .Aikman 
said: “We're talking about a capability declin- 
ing steadily. We are told that heasy arms and 
equipment are being moved.” 

He said that despite toe revision of Thurs- 
day’s estimate, toe UN peacekeepers were still 
optimistic that both parties could meet their 
self-imposed deadline of midnight on Saturday. 

An Associated Press reporter traveling be- 
tween Pale and Luk&vica. a likely route for a 
major pullout, saw four Bosnian Serbian trucks 
— three of them towing artillery pieces — 
beading away from Sarajevo. 

NATO reconnaissance aircraft patrolling 
Bosnia are capable of detecting the presence of 
many heavy weapons, but a White House 
spokeswoman said in Washington that allied 
aircraft had not confirmed the withdrawal be- 
cause of fo gg y conditions. 

On Thursday, Mr. Churkin, after a meeting 
with the Bosnian Serbs, pledged that Russian 
peacekeepers would be sent to Sarajevo if toe 
Serbs pulled back their gons. 

Mr. Churkin said Russia would commit more 
troops in the future for deployment elsewhere 
in Bosnia. 

In a message Friday to toe UN secretary- 
general, Butros Burns Ghali, President Boris 
N. Yeltsin of Russia requested permission to 
shift 400 Russian peacekeepers in Croatia to 
Sarajevo, the Russian press agency Itar-Tass 
reported from New York.

Yeltsin’s Diplomatic Coup 

If Siege Is Lifted \ He’ll Share Credit 

By Celestine Boblen 

.Vm >‘iv* Times Serncc 

MOSCOW — In winning a pledge from 
toe Bosnian Serbs to withdraw their heavy 
artilleiy from toe outskirts of Sarajevo. Pres- 
ident Boris N. Yeltsin of Russia has scored a 
badly needed diplomatic triumph, one that 
is likely to work for him ai home as well as 

The Serbs’ commitment, like previous de- 
velopments that have stirred hope in (be 
brutal two-year Bosnian war. is necessarily 
tenuous, depending as it does on the compli- 
ance of warring parties that have so far 
found no good reason to lay down their 

But if it sticks and toe Serbian guns pull 
back, if only for a few weeks or months. Mr. 
Yeltsin's government will have avoided an 
immediate problem that could have either 
damaged its relations with the West or left it 
with a domestic political disaster. 

The air strikes that toe North Adamic 
Treaty Organization has threatened against 
Serbian targets if toe guns are not removed 
would hare left Moscow with two unpalat- 
able choices: Condemn toe anack and risk 
international isolation, or face toe wrath of 
Russian nationalists who hare adopted toe 
Serbs’ cause as their own. 

In toe week since NATO issued its ultima- 
tum for the lifting of toe siege of Sarajevo, 
Russian diplomats, and Mr. Yeltsin himself, 
managed to add more drama to the crisis by 

insisting loudly, even petulantly, that Russia 
would not be left out of any solution to toe 
Balkan crisis. 

Their complaints, made even after Wash- 
ington and other European capitals took 
pains to consult with Moscow on NATO’s 
decision, only served to underscore toe 
Kremlin's unenviable position. 

For Mr. Yeltsin's government, a diplo- 
matic solution simply bad to be found be- 
fore toe NATO ultimatum expired Sunday. 

“Our aim is to make sure that toe ultima- 
tum is never carried out, that toe air strikes 


never take place.” Deputy Foreign Minister 
Sergei Lavrov told toe lower house of toe 
Russian parliament Thursday. 

Now, with toe agreements reached in 
Pale, toe political headquarters of the Bosni- 
an Serbs. Russia may bare found a way out 
of toe immediate crisis, not only for itself, 
but also Tor the Serbs and toe WesL 

Russia's intervention — in particular toe 
offer to send 800 troops to Sarajevo to join 
United Nations peacekeeping forces — 
gives toe Serbs a face-saving way to explain 
their compliance with toe NATO ultima- 
tum, while toe Serbs’ pledge, if kept, relieves 
toe West of carrying out its threat to bomb 
artillery positions around Sarajevo. 

Now it is Russia’s turn to gloat, and to

Industrial Collapse Looms 
As Russia Grinds to a Halt 

By Margaret Shapiro 

Washington Pest Service 

MOSCOW — At toe once-vaunted Zil fac- 
tory. whose boxy limousines have been the 
choice of Soviet rulers for decades, half toe 
employees were recently put on unpaid leave. 
In the oD fields of Siberia, lack of funds has 
forced 15.000 workers onto drastically reduced 
work schedules. In Russia's textile capital, so 
few cloth factories are now open that local 
officials want the entire region declared an 
“economic catastrophe” zone. 

Across toe frigid expanse of Russia, a long- 
anticipated industrial collapse is finally arriv- 
ing. From vodka distilleries to rocket factories 
and tractor assembly plants, production lines 
are grinding to a halt, and every day brings 
news of yet another collection of workers sent 
on leave without pay. 

The shutdowns are important because toe 
fate of state-owned industries — in particular, 
what to do with factories too inefficient to 
survive outside a socialist economy — is at toe 
heart of the struggle over reform in Russia. 

Supporters of toe program of “shock therapy” 
pursued until late last year by toe government 
of President Boris N. Yeltsin tried to curtail 
state subsidies to factories so that they would 
be forced to adjust to toe demands of toe 
marketplace or shut down. 

But conservative rivals ensured that many 
subs dies continued — a setback the reformers 
blamed for toe country's high inflation and the 
failure of a free market to take hold. Now that 
most reformers have been ousted from Mr. 
Ydtsin’s government, a mare conservative cab- 
inet undo* Prime Minister Viktor S. Cherno- 
myrdin is promising that state support for in- 
dustry will be stepped up. 

Still, there is growing evidence that an up- 
heaval in industry is happening, after all: Be- 
cause of inflation, falling demand for goods 
and a drop in stale purchases, many big indus- 
tries have been starved for funds. Some are 
being forced toward toe capitalist-style restruc- 
turing measures sought by reformers, such as

U.S. Seeks Approach to Burma on Rights 

By Thomas W. Lippman 

tYashiagion Post Strike 
months after President Bill Clinton 

ordered an interagency review erf 

UJS. policy toward the pariah gov- 
ernment in Banna, his foreign poli- 
cy advisers are still looking for 
ways to increase pressure on Ran- 
goon to improve its human rights 

The challenge they face, accord- 
ing to a dminis tration officials, is to 
muster more international efforts 
to isolate the Burmese junta over 
human rights issues without under- 
mining parallel efforts to persuade 
the military rulers to crack down on 
heroin trafficking. 

Mr. Clinton openly has support- 
ed Burma’s most prominent politi- 
cal dissident, Daw Aung San Suu 
Kyi, but several members of Con- 
gress have been agitating for a 
more decisive confrontation with 
the Rangoon government 
The policy review has been pro- 
longed. an administration official 
said, because several agencies in- 
volved have differed over tactics. 
But the official said those in Con- 

gress and in human rights groups 
who think the administration is wa- 
vering are wrong. 

“There is no sentiment in the 
upper, reaches of the foreign . 
leadership that we should be 
ing off on Burma,” another official 
said. “The issue is, are there ways 
we can be better engaged in the 
effort to support human rights and 

The junta’s decision to allow a 
US. congressional visit to Daw 
Aung San Suu Kyi this week appar- 
ently was intended to influence the 
administration policy review and a 
forthcoming United Nations hu- 
man rights report, according to 
lf.S. officials and other analysts. 

"This could be a hopeful sign,” 
an administration official said, 
adding that the government was 
“somewhat encouraged" that one 
prominent Burmese official has 
said a political dialogue with Daw 
Aung San Suu Kyi might be possi- 

Given Burma’s record of human 
rights violations, narcotics traffick- 
ing, political repression and the 
largest outflow of refugees in Asia, 

“we have a classic debate,” a senior 
official said. “Do you engage and 
hope to influence? Right now, we 
lean more toward isolation." 

H uman rights groups, the Clin- 
ton administration and Yozo Yo- 
kota, the UN special monitor on 
human rights in Burma, agree that 
the junta has (me of the most dis- 
mal human rights records of any 

Washington also accuses the jun- 
ta of open cooperation with opium 
producers ami money launaerers 
responsible for most of the heroin 
entering the United States. Under 
current U.S. law, Burma’s narcotics 
record requires that Washington 
vote against any loans to Rangoon 
by the World Bank or other inter- 
national lending agencies. 

Some members of Congress, led 
by Senator Daniel P. Moynihan, 
Democrat of New York, want to go 
further. Mr. Moynihan and 19 oth- 
er senators from both parties told 
Mr. Clinton in October that “noth- 
ing less than a change in govern- 
ment” would lead to an end to 
hitman rights abuses and a reduc- 
tion in the flow of drugs. 

■ A Step Toward Freedom 

In what diplomats described as a 
significant step toward freedom for 
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Burmese 
government-controlled newspapers 
ran a transcript of remarks Friday 
in which the imprisoned opposition 
leader and Nobel Peace Prize laure- 
ate was praised as "a woman of 
passion and commitment” who 
“stands for the best ideals of de- 
mocracy,” The New York Tunes 
repented from Bangkok. 

Diplomats said it was the first 
time since 19S9, when she was 
placed under house arrest, that 
r ----- - san 

Suu Kyi had appeared m an i 
government pubheation. 

The remarks were made on 
Wednesday by Representative KH 
Richardson, Democrat of New 
Mexico, who led a delegation of the 
first nonfamQy foreign visitors to 
see Daw Aung San Suu Kyi since 
her detention. The text of his re- 
marks praising the 48-year-old 
leader was published in the Bur- 
mese and English language editions 
of The New Light of Myanmar, the 
principal government newspaper. 

Longtime Tensions Keep India Lagging 

By Edward A. Gargan 

New York Tima Service 

PAWN A, India — A shredded strip of as- 
phalt winds toward this village, passing through 
mile after mOe of wheat and rice fields. Along 
the road men and women bear unruly bundles 
of wheat stalks on their beads. An occasional 
battered bus rfiuddera down the narrow track, a 
sporadic link with the outside world. 

Along one edge of Pawna, where the houses 
are made of concrete and some have pillared 
porches, live the higher castes — the Thakurs, 
the Br ahmins 

Nearby, in adobe huts and small concrete 
bouses, are clusters of a backward or disadvan- 
taged caste known as the Mahto, and segregat- 
ed in little pockets of wren mud huts and a 
s cattering or rough brick hovels are the un- 
touchables. whose very touch some Hindus 
regard as polluting. They are among India’s 
poorest ana most despised. 

More than 70 percent of India's people live in 
villages, where their habits, customs and tradi- 
tions have changed tittle over the centuries even 
as economic and political forces have changed 
around them. 

For two years, the government worked to lift 
state ownership and regulations on the econo- 
my that critics say led to corruption, inefficien- 
cy and stagnation. The resulting growth has 
mostly benefited the country's educated middle 
r.l«« of about 120 million, especially in Bom- 
bay and Bangalore. 

While many Indians are achieving extraordi- 
nary levels of prosperity, the fact that so many 
have been left out has led to political appeals to 
sectarian prejudice that have weakened India's 
long claim to secularism. 

To counter a wave of secessionist insurgen- 
cies, India has resorted to what human rights 
groups say has been increasing use of torture, 
nspnsonmeni and even murder by the police 
and army. 

The tensions of caste, religion, corruption, 
secessionism and a weakening of democratic 
values collaborate to keep India well behind 
many of its Asian neighbors with rapidly grow- 
ing economies. 

Here in the village of Pawna, for example, 
upper-caste children tend to be educated, while 
lower-caste and untouchable children are kept 
from schools. Village disputes over water and 
land quickly erupt into caste conflict, with caste 
massacres a pe rsisten t feature of rural India. 

Same experts foresee a rising tide of caste 
violence as upper castes ding to their privileges 
: the claims of lower castes and untouen- 
This has led some to conclude that the 
upper-caste control of land and political power 
is going tn diminish. 

Perhaps the strongest force that may be 
weakening upper-caste control is die economy. 
India ha< quickened effort s to dismantle the 
socialist edifice of state planning and control, 
opening its economy to outride investment, 
which has led to glimmers of sustained econom- 
ic growth and new jobs. 

In fact, the process of economic liberaliza- 
tion cuts both ways. It makes it easier far upper 
castes to make use of the privileges they have to 
advance themselves even further. 

But there is some evidence that the growing 
cracks in the eco n omic structure are making it 
easier for some lower castes to enlarge their 

From a 1.2 percent growth in its gross domes- 
tic product in the 1991-92 fiscal year, India’s 
economy is now expanding at 4 percent a year, 
less than its East Asian neighbors, but steady 
nonetheless, and there is a great distance to go. 

Fully half of India’s 880 million people live in 
absolute poverty, more than half are iDiterate, 
fewer than 10 percent have access to sanitation 
and of 1.000 children bom, 142 die before the 
age of 5. 

When P. V. Narasimha Rao look over as 
prime tninistw two and a hnlf years ago, India’s 
industries, particularly its slate-controlled be- 
hemoths. were inefficient, produced shoddy 
products and most were bankrupt. Its farmers 
were the least productive in Aria. And tbe 
country's infrastructure, its power, water and 
telecommunications grids were inadequate and 
degenerating further each year. 

Mr. Rao chose a nonpolitician, a respected 
economist named Manmohan Singh, to mold 

tbe program of economic liberalization that 
was to bran resuscitating the economy and to 
launch India into the global economy, where its 
Share of in terna tinnaT trade had dinwk <oncg 

independence to a mere 0.6 percent. 

Mr. Singh loosened some controls, eased 
rules for foreign investment and devalued the 
rupee: He mlfay) about shedding thousands of 
unprofitable and inefficient state industries, 
but has taken no steps so far to do so. 

Trepidation and self-interest have stymied 
economic reform, but mare troubling doubts 
arise over a struggle for India’s identity and its 
very history. At the core is the tension between 
Hindus, who make up 85 percent of the popula- 
tion, and Muslims, who number about 110 

milli on 

Hie most viable, and violent, confrontation 
is the secessionist guerrilla war in Kashmir, a 
war that has reinforced for many Indians, Hin- 
dus in particular, a sense of geographic isola- 
tion in a sea of Islamic countries and has fed 
anti-Muslim prejudice. 

A recent report by Amnesty International 
said “disappearances” are now systematically 
practiced by the security forces. And, the report 
declared, “Government officials have subvert- 
ed legal proceedings initiated to clarify ’disap- 

Ravi Nair, the executive director of the South 
Asian Human Bi ghts Documentation Center. 
India’s only nonpolitical organization that pub- 
lishes detailed reports of violations across the 
region, said that while the extent of abuses was 
beyond doubt, the larger victim was India’s 
very democracy. 

“The Vale of Kashmir for the last five years 
has only seen tbe veil of mothers, orphans and 
relatives of people who have disappeared,” Mr. 
Nair said. 

“The democratic edifice, contrary to interna- 
tional perceptions, is very weak in India," he 
said. “It is weak because democratic attitudes 
are skin deep in all sections of society."

JERUSALEM — It is almost a 
ritual for young Israelis to travel 
the world as soon as they complete 
their compulsory nnhtary service. 
The more exotic tbe destination, 
the better. 

But several dozen new army vet- 
erans who signed up recently to 
train Congolese gpvcnnnestt troops 
have raised questions about wheth- 
er they carried the spirit of adven- 
ture too far. 

The Defense and Foreign minis- 
tries, which approved the Congo 
mission, say no. These are not mer- 
cenaries hirin g themselves out as 
fighters, they say, but instructors 
and advisers openly hired by a gov- 
ernment that had gained power 
through democratic dectioos. 

Several members of parliament, 
however, say Israel should with- 
hold its official blessing from do- 
zens who go into ihe military advis- 
er business. 

Tbe lawmakers are supported by 
parents of some young volunteers, 
unhappy that their sons, having 
survived combat duty in the Israeli 
Army, are now trooping off to a 
Central African country racked in 
recent weds by ethnic violence 
that has claimed hundreds of lives. 

Protests by two parliament 
members from Mcretz, a party in 
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin’s 
coalition, held up tbe scheduled de- 
parture recently of more than 30 
young men for Brazzaville, the 
Congolese capital. 

But government officials say tbe 
delay may be temporary and that 
the men, some of tnem veterans of 
army undercover units in tbe occu- 
pied territories, may soon join two- 
dozen Israelis already in Congo. 

The dispute received consider- 
able media attention here in recent 
days, and even though officials 
play down the criticism, it touched 
off a debate on lsraeTs military 

rifling s , especially with stru gg li ng 
African countries. 

According to some estimates, 
more than 2,000 Israeli military in- 
structors have worked in Africa 
over the last three decades, from 
its in Uganda to paratroopers in

Levdan were reportedly offered 
S2.500 a month pins expenses; 
which is a lot of mongr in Istad. 
especially for a 22-year-dd not sure

Nothing was out of line; said 
Oded Ben- Ana, a spokesman for 
Mr. Rabin. And since a legitimate 
government had donethehmng, he 
added, there was no reason to mock 

“We will give the Congolese sol- 
diers basic infantry training,” 
Haim Bono, a company official, 
told Israeli reporters. “What the 
Congolese government wants is to 
tom an okwashicoed Soviet-style 
anny into a modem. Western army. 
We are now doing as a private 
company what the Israeli govern- 
ment has done for years. We are 
not mercenaries. Nobody here is 

Concerns rose here with reports 
that Congolese anti-government 
forces were looking to recruit then- 
own Israeli instructors, touching 
off alarms that Israelis would be 
fighting each other in a- faraway 

The reports are “nonsense,” Mr. 
Ben-Ami said.

As Crime Goes Europewide, So Do Police

THE HAGUE —The transition 
to a Western Europe “without bor-

Kevorkian Is Ordered to Stand THal 

Russians Detail U.S . Pressure on Missing GIs 

Sen- J'ofi Times S* n» 

WASHINGTON — Russian officials 
lyrnplynwl in November that State Depart- 
ment officials were discouraging them from 
releasing documents about prisoners of war 
in Vietnam, according to a classified cable 

made available by US. officials who are 
an gr y about President Bin CRnton's decision 
to Tin the trade embargo against Vietnam. 

According to the cable, the Russians said 
they were receiving a mixed m ess age from 
Washington: WMc many U.S. officials were 
presang them to turn over as many docu- 
ments as possible about soldiers ntiising in 
Vietnam, other officials were id ling them 
that refeasmg such documents would hurt 

UJS-Rusaan relations. 

State Department officials vigorously de- 
nied that they had told the Russians not to 
discfasedocmoenis and said they had repeat- 
edly pressed Moscow to produce whatever 
documents it bad. 

President Clinton said last year that he 
wanted the fullest possible accounting of the 
faieof more than 2^00 Americans missing in 

The officials who provided ihe document 
were concerned that h indicated that some 
State Department officials were Hooting the 
president’s policy in order to avoid embar- 
rassing disclosures from Soviet archives, 
which could delay lifting the embargo. 

Last spring, the discovery of a i 972 docu- 
ment from Soviet archives that seemed to 
indicate that Vietnam had held more than 
the acknowledged number of prisoners 
stalled U5. movement toward lifting the 

The cable points to the divisions in the 
government on lifting the Vietnam embargo 
and on whether Hanoi was fully cooperating 
in accounting for missing Americans. 

Some lower-level officials have been frus- 
trated that other officials have not pressed 
Moscow and Hanoi as hard as they would 
like to turn over Momsuca, 

Mr. Clinton lifted the trade embargo Feb. 
3, saying that Hanoi had cooperated in pro- 
viding a full accounting of the mi«nng Amer- 

The cable, dated Nov, 12. said a promi- 
nent Russian official had said Russian For- 
eign Ministry officials had heard from un- 
identified State Dqiartmeni officials that 
they “were not pleased” with the reiease of 
the 1972 document 

According to the caoie, the Russian offi- 
cial, Lieutenant Colonel Sergei N. Osipov, in 
liaison with U.S. MIA investigators in Mos- 
cow. said the Russian Foreign Ministry bad 
heard that State Department officials “were 
discouraging further releases of such docu- 

The cable was sent by the U.S. head of the 

Moscow office of Task Force Russia, a U.S.- 
Russian group that seeks information from 
Moscow about .Americans missing from the 
Vietnam and Korean wars. The cable was 
sent under the name of Thomas R. Pickering, 
the VS. ambassador to Russia. 

Mr. Pickering said that be could not un- 
derstand how the Russians had received a 
mixed message, asserting that Washington 
had repeatedly asked for all information. 

Task Force Russia sent the cable shortly 
after Winston Lord, assistant secretary of 
state for East Asia, met with Russian offi- 

Several Americans who used to work on 
Task Force Russia said the cable showed 
that some State Department officials were so 
eager to have the embargo lifted that they 
would even urge Moscow not to release doc- 
uments that pm Vie tnam m a bad light. 

Colonel Willi am LeGro, a former special 
assistant to the director of Task Force Rus- 
sia, said: “Some officials were trying to con- 
vince the president that the Vietnamese had 
cooperated 100 percent in resolring the MIA 
issue and that the embargo should be lifted. 
Therefore they said. *We don't want any 
more of this inc riminating evidence to be- 
come public.' " 

Mr. Lord angrily denied that any Slate 
Department officials discouraged the Rus- 
sians from releasing additional documents. 

“No one in (he Slate Department would 
say, ‘We don't want documents,’ ” Mr. Lord 
sard. “The reported position by the Russians 
of what some State Department people said 
i& directly contrary to official United States 
policy. Anyone who would have said that 
would be fijed." 

A person wbo attended a meeting in Mos- 
cow in October between Mr. Lord and the 
deputy foreign minister at the time. Georgi 
F. Kunadze, said verbatim notes showed Mr. 
Lord thanked the Russians for providing 
documents and urged further cooperation. 

State Department officials said they sent a 
cable Nov. ]3, underscoring that Washing- 
ton warned all relevant documents and pro- 
testing reports that Russia bad agreed not to 
release such files without first consulting 

One U.S. official familiar with the con- 
tents of the cable said Colonel Osipov was 
known to be reluctant to release Vietnam- 
related documents and may have concocted 
the story that State Department officials had 
urged Moscow not to release them. 

Under tins interpretation. Colonel Osipov 
was trying to ward off pressure to release 
documents, knowing that they could embar- 
rass Moscow. Some U.S. intelligence offi- 
cials said the colonel is a former KGB agent. 

He did not return two calls to his office. 


President Keeps On Truckin’ 

He Raises Eyebrows With Memories of '70s Pickup 

By Douglas Jehl 

Ne w York Times Senice 

WASHINGTON — BiQ Clinton bad some explain- 
ing to do. 

Ever since he spoke last week of his fond recollec- 
tions of an El' Cammo pkknp, his audience at a 
Louisiana track plant ana chose who watched his 
comments replayed on tdevision have been left in 
firing rad oonfitsion. Mr. Clinron confided that be had 
fined the truck bed with Astroturf, adding with a sly 
grin, “You don’t want to know why, but f did." 

Interviewed by telephone on a New York talk-radio 
prpgram Thursday morning, Mr. Cfimoa jokingly 
tried to pul the speculation to rest. 

“It wasn’t for what everybody thought it was for 
when 1 made the comment, m tell you that," be 
protested. *Tm guilty of a lot of things, but I didn’t 
ever do that” 

It was for hauling luggage, Mr. Clinton explained, 
that be had put the carpet of synthetic grass in the 
bade of the -small truck-car bybnd, which bade in the 
eariy 1970s was the only vehicle he owned. Bui even as 
be feigned shock at how low some minds must have 
sunk, be seemed just a bit reluctant to dispel an image 
that made auto workers guffaw and made others 
wonder about Monsanto's scratchy contribution to 

Told by Don Imus, the host of WFAN's “Imas in 
the Morning.” that his denial sounded a bit “like 
saying you didn't inhale,” Mr. Clinton replied: ”No, 
it's just that I didn't inhale in the back of a pickup." 

In 23 minutes of banter that mixed earnest with 
wacky, Mr. Clinton also confessed to Mr. Imus and his 
nub-hour audience thei HfriJe he did his best to abide 
by his diet, be sometimes lost control 
“I was transported," Mr. Clinton said of the orgy of 
eating that he began Tuesday afternoon at a small- 
town Ohio delicatessen.

was 1 3 years old and had finally saved enough money

president recalled. “And 1 thought, well I’m going to

“And then I went to this restaurant in downtown 
Columbus and talked to those folks about health care, 
and I asked them what they thought I ought to have, 
and they said I ought to try the corned beef on 
pumpernickel” the president said. “Thai's what I did. 
Tbev said that’s what wa*. good, so 1 tried it” 

Mr. Clinton admitted that he had gone on to sample

size of a baby’s head,” although be insisted he only

The Mudslinging Starts in North’s Bid for Senate 

By Kent Jenkins Jr. 

tVari fa g w n Ped Sendee 

WASHINGTON — What had been a fairly polite cam- 
paign for Virginia's Republican nomination to the U.S. 
Senate got nasty as a supporter of James C. Miller 3d called 
Oliver L. North a liar and a North aide accused Mr. Miller erf 
dodging the draft during the Vietnam War. 

The exchange began when John Singlaub, a retired army 
general and a vocal critic of Mr. North who once served as 
conduit for arms in the ban-contra affair when he was a 
White House aide, Jed a news conference Thursday at which 
a group of retired officers endorsed Mr. Miller, a former 
Reagan administ r a tion budget director. 

In interviews afterward, General Shiglaub questioned Mr. 
North's honesty, saying that the former White House aide 
who was a key figure in the plot to sell arms to Iran and 
divert the profits to the Nicaragnan rebels, “was lying to me 
as he was to his other colleagues. 

“ He would lie to protect hiTTwdf." General Singlaub said. 
“He fantasized so many things." 

Hie campaign office of Mr. North, a former Marine 
lieutenant colonel responded by releasing copies of Mr. 
Miner's draft record, which indicate that he was granted a 
student deferment while studying for a doctorate in the mid- 
1960s. Although it did not challenge the legality of Mr. 
Miller’s draft status, a spokesman alleged that be “took four 
education deferments to avoid serving in Vietnam.” 

Mr. Miller acknowledged the deferments, but said he did 
nothing wrong and was willing to serve in the military had he 
been drafted." 

The race for the seat now held by Senator Charles S. 

delegates will be pici 
local caucuses next month. In some cases, the deadline for 
registering to participate in those caucuses is just 10 days 
away, making it important for Mr. North and Mr. Miller to 
line up conservative support now. 

Mr. Miller “is the one who dung mud today,” the spokes- 
man said. His draft record “has been sitting out there, and 
we didn’t use it until he attacked us.” 

Mr. Miller shot back, saying that Mr. North “claims he 
win never speak ill of an opponent, and then be sends his 
paid minions out to attack me. 

“If be wants to involve himself in a mudslinging contest. 
I’ve got a barrel full of mud on my side. He's only got a pail 
full if that.” 

General Singlaub has been a critic of Mr. North for 
several years. 

During the mid-1980s, while Mr. North worked for the 
National Security Council overseeing efforts to arm the 
contras, General Singlaub was one of several arms dealers 
Mr. North used to provide those weapons. 

The two eventually parted on bad terms, and General 
Singlaub wrote a book in which he criticized Mr. North. 
General Singlaub has been widely quoted in recent years as 
questioning Mr. North’s veracity. 

For his role in the Iran-contra affair, Mr. North was found 
guilty on three charges, including obstruction of Congress, 
but the convictions were overturned.

Randy Shilts, 42, the author of a 
best-selling book on AIDS and a 
reporter for The San Frandsco 
Chronicle, died of AIDS on Thurs- 
day in GuemeviBe, California. 

Mr. Shilts was one of ihe first 
journalists to recognize acquired 
immu ne deficiency syndrome as a 
national issue and in the early 
1980s he persuaded the Chronicle 
to let him repot on it full time. 

This resulted in a widely ac- 
claimed 1987 book, “And the Band 
Played On: Pofitka, People and the 
AIDS Epidemic.” A history of the 
first five years of the epidemic, it 
charged the Reagan adnumstra- 
tion, the medical establishment and 
some homosexual groups with in- 
difference to the disease. 

Born in Davenport, Iowa, Mr. 
Stilts grew up in Aurora, Illinois, 
near Chicago. While attending the 
University of Oregon, where be 
studied journalism and was manag- 
ing editor of the student newspa- 
per, he openly declared his homo- 

Mr. Suits did not always please 
afl. homosexuals with his reporting. 
He dismissed the dangers of San 
Francisco's bathhouses and anony- 
mous sex in the spread nf AIDS. 

He also attacked the practice of 
outing, or revealing tire homosex- 
uality of public figures, unless the 
targets promoted anti-gay policies. 

Although Mr. Stilts said that he 
did not expect “And the Band 
Rayed On” to bo a commercial 

success, the book beca m e a best- 
seller and turned him into what be 
called “an AIDS celebrity ” 

The book was made into a TV 
movie in 1993. He followed up with 
“Conduct Unbecoming: Lesbians 
and Gaysin theU-S. Military, Viet- 
nam to the Persian Gulf" (1993). 

Based on interviews with mili- 
tary penonnd and government re- 
cords obtained through the Free- 
dom of Information Act, the book 
traced the history of persecution of 
homosexuals in the military. 

In 1987, on the day he turned in 
the manuscript for “And the Band 

Played On,” Mr. Shilts found out 
that he had tested positive for HIV, 
the virus that causes AIDS. In Au- 
gust 1992, he developed full-blown 
AIDS. He completed the final 
pages of “Conduct Unbecoming" 
in a hospital bed. 

For fear of Jetting his persona) 
situation influence his reporting, be 
kept his illness secret until Febru- 
ary 1993. 

Henri Pierre, 75. a co-founder 
and longtime Washington corre- 
spondent of Le Monde, died 
in Washington. After

cow, London ana twice in Wash- 
ington, be retired in 1982 but still 
wrote occasionally for the paper 
despite major heart surgery. 

Maria St Just, an actress and 
longtime friend of the playwright

of heart failure at her home in Lon- 
don, her family said.

Ail of them said they had bees

sense of urgency. 

For Marlene Besso, paradise was 
cliangcd irrevocably with the 1992 

But she would not consider giv-

“The earthquake was the most 
horrifying experience of my life," 
said Ms. Besso, a bookkeeper from 

Buffalo. New York. 

“1 was all alone. Immediately I 
said, ‘I’m out of here.’ ” 

One indicator of the level of the 
unease is a recent Field Poll, take n 
in late January, in which 7 percent 
of those surveyed in Los Angeles 
County said they were very likely to 
move because of the quake. 

Thirty percent said they have 
considered moving because of fears 
of another earthquake.

which measured 6.7 on the Rtduer

Josefina Vidal, the feature editor

BONN — Erarif the NATO aHie&douiot drop asmgfc 
bomb aroand Sarajevo nextweck, diplomats say &e 
^te d^aM es —hawnow become 

The question 'is how tong tbty will stay involved, and 
whether they are prepared to stick it out long enough to 
devise a strategy (hat will end not just the sbdliitg of 
Sarajevo but the war iisdfi ' 

if the Bqscuan Sobs do finally vuttidoov their heavy 
Weapons by Smtday xdght, saying face by deafingtkwi^ 
Russian mtermediaries instead tit bowing 40 NATOs 
threat to start bombing if they; did not comply,' the allies 
can claim success. Bm jf Oris happens, the Noam Atlantic 
Treaty Organization's critkswfil argue that ircbuld have ; 
prevented the siege,and the wa^m the first place if it had 
only acted eafliar. . • . -V-’.. 

Although NATO kpreparaTto bomb yremtins not pot 
under UN control within a radius of 20 lduoroaers (12 
miles) from the center of 'Sarajevo after the. deadline' 
expires, UN authorities in Zagreb amd. Friday - that they 
expected the Serbs wpuia coaiqply by Saturday night.. • ; 

A NATO spokesman in Brussels said the aHuppe would 

dot insist on c&mriugcredil for success if the Serbs pulled 
.their weapons out. 

' “If Russian pressure will help,- we welcome that, but 
there should be. no nnsunderetaDding,*’ he said. “If after 
the deadline, weapons outside UN control arc found 
within the zone, they win be subject to strikes.” 

A. NATO diplomat also said that bombs cobid start 


fatting even if only a few Serbian weapons had not been 

falling even if only a few Serbian weapons had not been 
withdrawn by Sunday night- ■ . , 

“The blood lust is up in Washington,'’ he said, but 
'even zfThe gum are taken out of the zone, it is oofy-a 
tactical withdrawal that in no way changes the Serbs

r a strategy to end iL 

To many people in Europe, it has been dear ever since 
the failure two summers ago of the first European Union 
attempts to negotiate a cease-fire that there could be no 
successful political-diplomatic strategy to end the war 
without the full participation of the United States. 

The American military was long reluctant to become 
involved. But a few boors spent at the Allied Forces 
Southern Europe command in Naples with Admiral Jer- 
emy M. Boorda, the U A officer in charge, made it dear 
that planning for possible bombing missions was in high 
gear, with 170 planes and hundreds of pilots, inducting 
Americans, ready to go into action. 

grin, the United States is not yet willing to send troops 
in on the ground until a negotiated peace agreement is 
reached. The European allies, however, would like to see 
Americans more heavily involved in the UN peacekeeping 
force in Bosnia as part of a combined political and 
diplomatic strategy to bring pressure on the Serbs. Croats 
and Muslims to stop the fighting. 

The United States has sent an emissary. Charles E 
Redman, to play a more active role in the peace talks, to 
try to get the waning parties to see that they have more to 
from a negotiated settlement than by continuing to 
fight on the battlefield. 

But the problem remains the Bosnian Serbs, who treat- 

ed earlier empty NATO threats to bomb them with con- 
tempt. but took the latest one seriously once it became 
clear that NATO and the United States really meant iL 

Negotiations to end a war do not take place in a 
vacuum. To produce a settlement, negotiations have to 
reflect realities on the battlefield, and one of those in 
Bosnia is now NATO’s willingness to become involved. 

“What we have is a progressive stepping up to the mark 
by NATO," one allied diplomat in Brussels said, "and this 

is going to have a salutary impact on the negotiations. 1 
rhfrile this demonstrates that NATO is in a position to play 
a constructive role in the resolution of Lhe conflict. 

But that will be true only as long as NATO remains 
willing to be directly engaged- Short-term tactical success 
achieved with Russian help in Sarajevo could become an 
obstacle to long-term strategic success, by encouraging the 
illusion that engagement need not last very long or cost 
very much. 

But, as one allied official with memories of French and 
American involvement in Vietnam said, “Duration is the 
key to this situation." 

And Sarajevo could be only the beginning, not the end 
of NATO involvement in the'war in the Balkans, depend- 
ing on the answers to many questions: 

• If the Serbs withdraw their weapons and use them 
elsewhere, is NATO going to threaten to bomb them 

& V\( the Serbs bring back the weapons and fire at 
Sarajevo again, is NATO going to stop them? 

• If the Bosnian Muslims try to use die wthdrawal to 
seize back captured territory around Sarajevo, will the 
United Nations or NATO stop them? 

• If NATO is willing to use air P w*r « bnng about a 
cease-fire in Sarajevo, why not anywhere else. 

• And finally, if the Serbs do not withdraw, if the 
bombs start falling and if the Serbs retaliate against the 
UN peacekeeping forces on the ground, how long is 
NATO willing to keep flying to protect them? 

NATO’s credible but limited threat to use force for the 
first time in its 45-year history, combined w to the con- 
structive assistance the allies hoped for from the Russians, 
may have deterred further atrocities in Sarajevo. 

But they continue elsewhere in Bosnia- Herzegovina, 
and may not stop until the alliance develops a long-term 
strategy to back diplomatic efforts to end the war ana 
deter others in the ethnic snake pits elsewhere in Eastern 
Europe, including the young republics of the former 
Soviet Union.

U.S. Keeps a Close Watch on Sarajevo 

They Know Exactly What They Have to Do,’ State Dept. Aide Says of Serbs 

. . ■ u- i j v- iht* FUwnian Serbs from continirins

By Douglas Jehl 

Nr* York Tuna Senior 

WASHINGTON — The United States said 
Friday that it would be watching closely to 
ensure that Serbian forces around Sarajevo 
honored a NATO ultimatum that takes effect 
Sunday night. 

It warned again that a violation would be 
punished by air strikes. 

“They know exactly what they hare to do,” 
said Michael McCurry, the State Department 
spokesman, referring to the NATO demand 
that the Serbs remove heavy weapons from 
around Sarajevo or put than under United 
Nations control “They know what wall happen 
if they don't comply.” 

“The test will be in their actions on the 
ground,” said Dee Dee Myers, the White House 
spokeswoman. “The NATO decision has not

UlUligGU. _ 

[A senior White House official said that Pres- 
ident Bill Clinton was likely to make a state- 
ment to the American people on Saturday to 
wt plarn why the United States might be in- 
volved in air strikes in Bosnia, Reuters report- 

As a senior Russian official warned that air 
strikes could lead to “all-out war” in Bosnia. 
Mr. McCurry acknowledged that Moscow re- 
mained less than sympathetic to the reiteration 
of the NATO threat 

But he said that Russian officials had beat 
less alarmist in private conversations with their 
U5. counterparts and said representatives of 
the two countries would meet in Europe next 
week in an effort to forge a common approach 
to peace in the region. , 

The State Department spokesman praised 
lhe Russian decision to send 400 troops to help 
is the peacekeeping around Sarajevo. But he 

emphasized that the soldiers would be under 
UN command, and reiterated the NATO threat 
despite the stem warning from Deputy Foreign 
Minister Vitali I. Churkin of Russia that such 
talk was counterproductive. 

“The important thing at this point is to see 
actions from the Serbs because, as you know in 
the past we’ve seen plenty of words," Mr. 
Mcduny said. 

US. officials acknowledged Friday that 
heavy doud cover has made it impossible for 
U.S. reconnaissance satellites to measure the 
extent of the Serbian withdrawal from the area 
around Sarajevo. They were relying instead on 
reports from UN officials on the ground. 

With the United States trying to maintain its 
focus on the Bosnian capital U.S. officials said 
they were not yet ready to see how they would 
respond to a new UN report concluding that as 
man y as 5,000 regular Croatian Army troops 
may remain in Bosnia. 

That would violate a pledge made by the 
Croatian government, and could trigger the 
economic sanctions that have been weighed for 
weeks by the United States. The State Depart- 
ment said it would wail until next week to raise 
the matter at the United Nations. 

■ Cautious Optimism in U.S. 

Defense Secretary William J. Pory said that 
he was “cautiously optimistic about the devel- 
opments of the last few days,” news agencies 
reported from Washington. 

Mr. Peny will go to Aviano Air Base in Italy 
on Sunday for a meeting with the defense 
ministers of key allies. 

Mr. McCurry, the State Department spokes- 
man, was adamant that the Sunday ultimatum 
only applied to the Sarajevo area and did not 

prevent the Bosnian Serbs from continuing to 
shell other civilian populations. 

“The NATO ultima rum dearly does not ad- 
dress the redeployment of that artillery 10 other 
places within Bosnia," he said. 

* . __ «L a that fhl® 

other places with Bosnia." he said. 

France also warned Friday that the Weston 
allian ce remained determined to implement the 
ultimatum if its conditions were not met 
“The decision announced yesterday by the 
Serbs under Russian pressure \s positive, but we 
are used to so many unfulfilled commitments, 
unrespecied cease-fires and broken words that 
we shall have to see before deriding," Foreign 
Minister Alain Juppe said in Pfcrigueux. south- 
western France. 

Mr. Juppe implicitly rejected a warning from 
President Boris N. Yeltsin of Russia to Presi- 
dent Francois Mitterrand of France against 
NATO air strikes on Bosnian Serbs if the ulti- 
matum was not respected. 

Tf the ultimatum is not satisfied, Mr. Juppe 
said, “the Atlantic allian ce in coordination with 
the United Nations will have to do what it has 
previously announced. It’s a matter of credibil- 
ity.” . 

Mr. Mitterrand's office said a message deliv- 
ered by the Russian ambassador, Yuri Rhyzov, 
on Thursday warned against the “terrible con- 
sequences" of an air strike. 

Mr. Juppi said that the withdrawal of the 
heavy guns was only the first step, which must 
be followed by allowing freedom of movement 
fra- people and humanitarian convoys in toe 
Sarajevo area and putting the distnet under UN 
adminis tration.

A Political Sale to Saudis 

tribune U.S.- Japanese Trade Disputes Need a Quiet Forum 

In the highly politicized market for jet air- 
liners, BOl Clinton has just scored a great 
coup. He has persuaded Saudi Arabia to buy 
S6 billion worth or American planes. The 
Saudis intend to replace the fleet of their 
national airline, but they originally proposed 
to divide the order between Boeing and .Air- 
bus, the European consortium. After intense 

lobbying by President Clinton personally and 
several members of his cabinet. King Fahd 
changed his mind and decided instead to buy 
only American planes from Boeing and Mc- 
Donnell Douglas. That is splendid for em- 
ployment in the American aerospace industry. 

But in the future, neither die American air- 
craft companies nor their friends in Washing- 
ton will be able to complain, as they have 
done bitterly in the past, about other govern- 
ments' interference in aircraft sales. 

Mr. Clinton would no doubt say that be was 
only doing what the beads of European gov- 
ernments have always done in behalf of their 
companies. That is true, but political interest 
is rarely absent from any of these sales. No 
one understands that better than the Saudis. 
They know that they have now done Mr. 
Clinton a huge favor with a very positive 
impact in a state — California — where he 
needs all the help be can geL They hope he will 
remember that the next time the shadow of a 

threat falls across their kingdom. They also 
know that their style of government, a medi- 
eval monarchy, lies at some distance from the 
democratic ideals that the United States ac- 
tively promotes in most other places. They 
like io give Americans good reason to stay off 
that delicate subject in their country. 

The S6 billion for civilian jets is a relatively 
small amount compared with the S30 billion 
in American military equipment that Saudi 
Arabia has on order. Because of the current 
low prices of oil, the Saudis have had to 
stretch out many of these purchases. Despite 
these obvious financial strains, the Clinton 
administration says it is not worried about the 
Saudis' ability to pay for the new planes. 

Relations between Saudi Arabia and the 
United States have become increasingly dose 
over the years. They begin with oiL But Saudi 
Arabia is a thinly populated country, mostly 
desert surrounded by many enemi es. The Sau- 
dis find it prudent to recycle some of their oil 
wealth bock into the U.S. economy in ways that 
make useful friends — in this case, by helping 
to soften the effects of the cots in American 
defense spending. In return they ask only that 
Americans in power think kindly of their erran- 
try, and of the convenience of keeping it safe 
and stable under its present regime. 


Incentives for Iraq, Too 

What is the best way for America to coax a 
secretive, unpredictable and sometimes bel- 
ligerent “rogue regime" to abandon efforts 
to make prohibited weapons like nuclear 
bombs or chemical and biological agents? In 
the case of North Korea, a deft diplomatic 
mix of economic incentives and threats of 
trade and financial sanctions is be ginning to 
yield encouraging results. Yet in the case of 
Iraq, the Clinton administration clings to the 
purely punitive approach that it inherited 
from George Bush. 

United Nations arms inspectors now fear 
that U.S. reluctance to lift sanctions on Iraqi 
oQ exports, in exchange for Baghdad's full 
compliance with arms control d eman ds, could 
undermine the Iraqi cooperation that they 
need for their efforts to succeed. 

The Gulf War revealed that Iraq had been 
secretly developing a wide range of mass- 
destruction weapons, including nuclear 
bombs, medium-range missiles and both 
chemical and biological weapons. Malting it 
impossible for Iraq ever again to manufacture 
or possess such weapons rightly became (he 
top UN priority after the war. 

Security Council Resolution 687, approved 
and largely drafted by the United States to 
ratify the cease-fire terms, reflected that prior- 
ity. It states that once the council finds Iraq in 
full compliance with all provisions relating to 
the destruction and monitoring of prohibited 
weapons. UN sanctions against Iraqi oQ ex- 
ports “shall have no further force or effecL" 
Eager to resume those oQ sales, Iraq has been 

broadly cooperating with UN arms inspec- 
tors. although problem areas remain and 
long-term monitoring has barely begun. But 
Washington strongly hints that it will block 
the lifting of oil sanctions until Iraq meets 
other unrelated Security Council demands, 
like recognizing the new Kuwaiti bonder and 
curbing repression of Kurds and Suites. 

Iraqi officials now warn that Saddam Hus- 
sein could order them to stop cooperating 
with aims monitors if the Security Council 
does not mean to honor its own language. 
There is political gamesmanship in these Iraqi 
warnings. Yet Washington would serve no use- 
ful purpose by unDaterally rewriting the rules. 

Before the Security Council can deem Iraq 
in full compliance with its aims obligations, 
Baghdad must establish confidence that it 
would keep cooperating with UN monitors 
even after oil sanctions end. One precondition 
for such confidence is that Iraq build up a 
record of cooperation over an extended peri- 
od of time, probably at least six more months. 
Other aspects of Iraqi behavior can legiti- 
mately be considered, but only to the extent 
that they directly bear on the confidence issue. 

The point of sanctions is not to punish 
malefactors to eternity, but to make stubborn 
governments, even “rogue regimes," do what 
they otherwise would noL That requires good 
faith on both sides of the sanctions bargain. If 
Baghdad can fairly meet the conditions of the 
Security Council resolution, it should qualify 
for the promised relief. 


Face-lift for Foreign Aid 

Responding to its own inclinations as well as 
to bipartisan demands in Congress to improve 
the looks of foreign assistance, the Clinton 
administration performed radical reconstruc- 
tion on the aid program last year. The face-lift 
did not come about without causing some 
trauma up and down the ranks of the Agency 
for International Development As a remit of 
the surgery, foreign aid has a new lease on life. 

Budding on the 1989 HamQton-Gilman re- 
port a Bush administration reform proposal, 
and the Wharton foreign assistance task force 

Slate Clifton Wharton), the administration 
drafted a new bill that trims away 33 separate 
aid goals and 75 priority areas that Congress 
had forced on a succession of Democratic and 
Republican administrations. The new mea- 
sure also peels away numerous funding ear- 
marks and outdated country restrictions, ail 
Cold War relics embedded in the 33-year-old 
aid statute. Goae, loo, is the Economic Sup- 
port Fund, which the administration rightly 
sized up as a program singularly unsuited to a 
world no longer threatened by communism. 

What has emerged is a smaller and neater 
measure with a less invasive set of foreign aid 
policies and objectives. That, at least is the 
appearance offered by the foreign assistance 

act rewrite. But even with the tail’s new fa- 
cade, it is fair to ask whether there is much 
else dial is new or different underneath. Look- 
ing at the fiscal year 1995 foreign aid budget, 
it isn’t at all clear that there is. 

While the bill's titles and nomenclature 
have changed — this year's foreign aid rally- 
ing cry is railed “sustainable development" — 
the lion’s share of the Clinton aid dollars will 
continue to flow in a familiar pattern. The 
former Soviet Union and the MitUle East will 
garner more than half the funds in this year’s 

before. There is no assailing the rationale for 
making such massive investments; promoting 
democracy, open economies and the peace 
process serves American interests. But when 
set-asides for protected foreign countries are 
subtracted, not much is left in the AID budget 
for all the other countries with equal needs 
and a commensurate ability to use scarce 
resources effectively. 

The administration should be commended 
for producing a long overdue aid reform bQL 
Now it is up to Congress to agree to a new 
statute — and also a new budget that sets 
priorities according to America's true capaci- 
ty to deliver what is needed.

A World Away From Geneva 

What on earth does the White House think 
it is doing? Hot on the heels of Japan's 
(sensible) rejection of American demands 
for numerical targets to boost American 
firms' sales in Japan, the Clinton administra- 
tion has threatened trade sanctions and baf- 
fled financial markets. After a meeting in 
Washington between Bill Clinton and Mori- 
hiro Hosokawa had broken down rancorous- 
ly, the yen spiked upward against the dollar, 
and administration officials talked publicly 
about favoring a weaker buck. Since Ameri- 
can interest rates recently rose, and Japanese 
ones are likelier to fail than rise, this is 

mystifying: if a weak dollar is what the 
White House wants, it is unclear, to say the 
least, bow it hopes to achieve it. 

All this smells horribly of the summer of 
1987. when a row between American offi- 
cials and German ones ended in a world 
stock market crash in October. As stock 
markets a gain look vulnerable to a change in 
investors' mood, the While House's blend of 
trade war and policy confusion is at best 
reckless. It is all a world away from Geneva 
just nine weeks ago. when delegates to the 
Genera] Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 
worked around the dock to conclude the 
Uruguay Round of trade talks.

A TLANTA — Ever since Japan became 
. one of America’s most important trade 
partners and competitors, differences in- na- 
tional policies ana priorities have threatened 
to degenerate into a counterproductive trade 
war. The current standoff is the most threat- 
ening in recent years and could have extreme- 
ly serious consequences. 

Such disputes are hardly unexpected, given 
the integration of Japan s government and

private sectors and its extreme dependence 
on exports. There is little doubt that Japan, a 
relatively closed society, has alliances 
among corporations that would violate 
American antitrust laws as well as safe- 
guarded paths of product delivery from raw 
material suppliers through manufacturers, 
wholesalers and retailers to consumers. 

National laws and customs perpetuate 
these arrangements, malring penetration of 
the market very difficult for foreigners unless 
they find a way to become part of the system.

In fairness to the Japanese, U.S. law 
almost completely exclude foreign imports 

that compete with vulnerable or politically 
powerful American industries or farm pro- 
ducers. Then, too, until recently most U.S. 
manufacturers depended on America’s enor- 
mous domestic market for sales, with rela- 
tively little emphasis an exports.

Still there are situations and products that 
require attention at the highest level in Wash-

vent the dumping of foreign goods in the

These factors are exacerbated by domestic 
political pressures, with leaders of both na- 
tions striving to avoid blame for economic 
problems and to gain credit for spirited ac- 
tions and words against economic competi- 
tors. Fiery language, threats and step-by-step 
sanctions escalate almost beyond control

NATO Air Strikes Would Stoke Up die War and Affront Russia 

S ARAJEVO — The United States 
and its reluctant NATO allies 

By Misha Glenny 

have embarked on a dangerous game 
of brinkmanship. If air strikes are 
used against Serbian positions in 
Bosnia after NATO's ultimatum ex- 
pires at midnight Sunday, they could 
touch off an even more destructive 
war throughout the 

And they could undermine relations 
between the United Stales and Russia 
and deal a severe blow to Russian 
political and economic reform. 

The dangers to U ^.-Russian rela- 
tions were only underscored by Thurs- 
day's report that President Boris 
Yeltsin nad persuaded the Bosnian 
Sobs to withdraw their heavy guns 
aimed at Sarajevo. 

Until now. President Bill Clinton, 
who has invested much of his foreign 
policy capital in supporting Mr. Yon 
sin, has gone out of his way to avoid 
antagonizing Russia over its tradi- 
tional ties with the Serbs. But Mr. 
Yeltsin is fast shedding his commit- 
ment to reform in the face of rising 
social discontent and nationalist senti- 
ment. And the ultranationalist Vladi- 
mir Zhirinovsky continues to strength- 
en his political base by exploiting 
Russian sympathies with the Serbs. 

to establish a cease-fire, separate the 
warring armies and begin to restore 
normal life in Sarajevo. 

If honored by the Bosnian govern- 
ment and the Serbs (and we must 
pray that it win be), the agreement 
could end the daily terror raced by 
the civilians of Sarajevo and restore a 
semblance of normality to the city. It 
could also serve as a model for towns 
like Mostar, T urin and Gorazde. 

Bui the NATO ultimatum sharply 
raises the stakes. It gives more teeth to 
the Rose plan but tbe risks thnt 

much greater. If the Serbs faQ to meet 
it, then tbe bombs are sure to fall or 
NATO's credibility will be in tatters. 

If NATO does attack, what then? 

First NATO air strikes will not 
stop the war in Bosnia. For many 
months, the worn battles have been 
fought between the Croats and Mus- 
lims in central Bosnia and in Mostar. 
This will intensify as the Muslims 
exploit the tactical advantage that the 

NATO intervention gives' them. In 
turn. President Franjo - Tudjman of 
Croatia win send more troops to sup- 
port the Bosnian Croats. 

Second, the Serbs will not take air 
strikes lying down. Because of. the 
economic chaos caused by sanctions, 
Serbs throughout the fanner Yugo- 
slavia are extremely hostile to the 
West They will perceive NATO ac- 
tion to be the last straw. 

The Serbs havemorc titan one way 
to respond. Apart from attacking for- 
eign nationals in Bosnia (including 
UN peacekeeping troops), they can 
im pyA the irrianTes that they have 
trained on Sarajevo and other towns. 
They could open a new front to tbe 
south, in Kosovo or Macedonia. 

The Serbs are not tfae only threat to 
the stability of the southern Balkans. 
Such threate internal, and external 
have proliferated in recent months, as 
the UJS. State Department dearly, 
recognizes. Diplomats in die Mac- 

edonian ca pital Skopje, are especial- ■' 
ly concerned about the growth of 
radkalum among the Albanian mi- 
nority in western Macedonia. 

Washington's recent decision to 
recognize Macedonia unleashed a 
disturbing and- violent outburst of 
anti-American feeling in Greece. Oh 
Wednesday, Greece decided to dose 
its border with the fomfcr Yugoslav 
republic of Macedonia. That decision 
could imperil the econ om ic stability 
of this tiny landlocked republic, 
where two wars Bave’ already been 
fought in this cen tury. . 

Through diplomatic channels, the 
Unitedotatea has warned Macedo- 
nia's neighbors that it is vitally in- 
terested m the country's survival 
Yet NATO air strikes could -seal 
Macedonia's fate. . 

Id December. 1991, Gennaify pre- 
maturely insisted on xepcgpiizmg CtOr 
■aria, against the better-judgment of 
the United: States and Britain. This' 
proved to be Bosni^sdeathsemence. 

Bombing the Serbs would not stop 

the war in Bosaia, but it woukUmen- 
afy the ferocity of nationalist confEct 

in the southern Balkans. Are the 
United States and NATO about to 
commit an even greater historical fol- 
ly than the Germans? 

: . President Qmtoa's special envoy 
for Yugoslavia, Claries Redmond,

peace process as wdL ... 

-.. The writer, a former BBC corre- 
spondent and author of “The Fan of . 
YugpsLdria,” contributed this comment 
to Vie New York Timex. 

So air strikes in Bosnia would be a 
frontal challenge to Russia. 

A senior United Nations official 
here told me this week that the 
NATO ultimatum had “as much to 
do with the Americans' desire to 
teach the Russians a lesson as it has 
to do with the situation in Bosnia.' 

A high-ranking officer of the Bosni- 
an army said: “We have no illusions 
about American intentions in this re- 
gion. Tbe U.S. wishes to establish a 
military presence in the Balkans." 

There is evidence to support this 
view. In the last year, Albania has 
leased a naval base to the United 
States and allowed the stationing of 
two spy planes on its territory. Under 
UN auspices, 300 U.S. soldiers have 
been stationed in the former Yugoslav 
republic of Macedonia. NATO was 
not party to any of these operations. 

“Not a week goes by without some 
four-star American gaeral paying us 
a visit,” said Saso Ordanoski Mac- 
edonia's most respected political 
commentator. It seems unlikely that 

morale of their troops. 

Small wonder, then, that Mr. Yelt- 
sin was so eager to persuade the Bos- 
nian Serbs to back away from the 
brink. Or that the British and the 
French, aware of tbe dangers in a 
proxy conflict between the United 
States and Russia in tbe Balkans, 
pleaded with Moscow and Washing- 
ton to grit a chance to the deal bro- 
kered by Lieutenant General Michael 
Rose, the UN commander in Bosnia: 

If Intervention Isn’t to Be Decisive, Why Intervene? 

W ASHINGTON — The good 
news about the U.S. decision 
to, in effect, conditionally enter the 
Yugoslav civil war on the side of the 
Bosnian Muslims is that it could 
have been worse. The administra- 
tion could have gone the mindless 
route of punitive air strikes against 
the Serbs in retaliation for the'Feb. 5 
mortar attack on the Sarajevo mar- 
ket that killed 68 people. Instead it 
issued an ultimatum designed to 
prevent future such attacks. 

Moreover, the ultimatum is mar- 
ried toapoHticaJ strategy: apledge to 
lean on the Bosnian Muslims to ac- 
cept the partition of their country. It 
is tbe Muslims, dissatisfied with the 
share of Bosnia allocated to them in 
the current peace negotiations, who 
have been holding up an agreement. 
U.S. willingness to pot some pressure 
on them is a sign of highly belated 

It was only a year ago. after all 
that Secretary of State Warren Quis- 

Vance-Owen plan because it gave tbe 
aggrieved patty, the Muslims, too lit- 
tle. (They will now get less.) It was 
almost exactly two years ago, before 
the civil war broke oat that the Bush 
administration opposed another par- 
tition plan agreed to by aB sides in 
Lisboa that gave tbe Muslims more 
territory than even Vaace-Owen. 

Looking bads, “the Lisbon agree- 
ment wasn t bed at aft" says then uB. 
Ambassador to Yugoslavia Warren 

By Charles Krauthammer 

Znnmermann. But not good enough 
far Americans. Now, two years and 
tens of thousands of dead later, the 
United States is finally deigning to 
step down from the high moral ground 
and push for a realistic partition. 

That is the' good-news. The bad is 
that it is ham to see this strategy 
working If the Muslims resisted the 
current European partition plan as in- 
adequate when they were alone and 
abandoned, why should they sign on . 
now that NATO is. in effect, prepared 
to intervene on their side? 

And where exactly does tbe NATO 
intervention lead? Tbe ultimatum 
a gains t artillery around Sarajevo is 
(resigned — we are assured by Wall 
Stocombe, deputy undersecretary of 
defense responsible for Bosnia policy 
— neither “to affect the military out- 
come" nor “to compel die parties to 
settle.” Why? Because to do that 
would require massive NATO mili- 
tary involvement and “soch use of air 

portionate to our interests at sta£t” 

But if UJS. interests arc not pro- 
portionate to the task required, what 
is America doing intervaring in the 
first place? What is the point of a 
military intervention designed in ad- 
vance not to affect the military out- 
come or compel tire parties to settle? 

Moreover, tbe prioe of such limited 
action could be very high. After all 
tbe Muslims have been literally dying

ton may not have won full 
bipartisan support for his foreign 
policy, but he is drawing bipartisan 
critidsm. From two politicians of 
different stripes. Republican Sena- 
tor Robert Dole and Democratic 
Representative Dave McCurdy, 
come sharp raps on the substance 
as well as the style of his policy. 

The criticism uttered by Mr. 
Dole, the Senate minority leader, is 
pretty much what you would expect 
from someone very Washington- 
shrewd who has his eye on the Re- 
publican presidential' primaries of 
1 996. Mr. Dole wants a more asser- 
tive policy is which America is the 
“predominant" player, “first among 
equals.” not just “one of the equals." 
He reserves special animus lor an 
ostensibly overreaching United Na- 
tions. ■o'ufcch. he dolaresu Pres- 
dent Clinton has “subcontracted" 
American independence. 

The true source of much of Mr. 
Dele’s presentation is nostalgia. 
His jarnent is for a time and a 
condition of American supremacy, 
as much imagined as real in which 
the United Stales invariably had its 
»ay. We Americans all have mo- 
ments of frustration when we in- 
duise this fantasy, and so the ad- 
ministration cannot afford to 
ignore it ar.d him. although one 
wishes tiret the supposedly hard- 
headed Dole would deliver nis con- 
stituency to a more realistic view. 

But there is a second string to 
Mr. Doles bow. He is 3ble to har- 
ness to his purposes Bill Clinton’s 
own undeniable confusions about 
the uses of tire United Nations. The 
administration started oat emanat- 
ing visions of turning over to the 
world bodv the hard cases among 

S. Kosenfeld 

regional disputes. It then ran into tire 
organizations and its own cultural 
and operational limitations. These 
days it is simply trying to recover 
and protect a little political space in 
which tbe United Nations could still 
someberw serve. These sums and fits 
have opened Mr. Dole’s way. 

Mr. McCurdy’s criticisms add 
something to Mr. Dole’s. Chairman 
of the Democratic Leadership Com- 
al Mr. McCurdy sits among “de- 
fense Democrats” who are not en- 
tirely sure how their nresidem will 
handle tbe foreign policy "opportu- 
nities” that 1994 offers’ Mm. He is 
all in favor of the “bold” leadership 
that Mr. Dole, too, evokes. Mr. 
McCurdy, whose own presidential 
aspirations are little concealed, dis- 
plays some boldness of Ms own. 

The single most policy- and 
ihougbr-bnuddling issue of the 
post-CoId War ’90s is whether the 
Bosnias, Somalias and Haitis are so 
important to the United States that 
it should be p r ep are d to intervene 
to shape an outcome toils lilting, or 
whether America can lire well 
enough with whatever result emerges 
(Hi its own. Most of us, indnding Mr. 
Dole, fudge this issue, scoring tbe 
president for a passive and reactive 
policy even wMie taking care not to 
raise the stakes too high, because 
that would force a commitment to 
act before we are ready for it. 

In approaching this issue, Mr. 
McCurdy is not satisfied to take 
refuge in tbe administration’s nu- 
anced distinction between an inter- 
vention- unworthy “national inter- 
est” and an intervention-worthy 
“vital national interest." Rather, be 
openly asserts that the “universal 
ideals 4, at play in B osnia, So malia 
and Haiti are ^imponant” but must 

be pursued “with restraint” because 
actual U5. ’interests*' there are 
“limited.” The line may not be as- 
dear as be draws it, but fra - stepping 
up to a hard issue he wins a point. 
America’s true priorities, says Mr. 
McCurdy, lie m Russia, China, 
North Korea and the Middle East. 

There remains a central consider- 
ation that both Mr. Dole and Mr. 
McCurdy havegrasped more clear- 
ly than Mr. ClinUm. Bosnia-type 
issues of world order, whatever 
their straK^k: import, are dynamiie 
in domestic politics. 

“The American people really 
don’t care much about foreign poli- 
cy until s omething happens,” says 
Mr. Dole. He acceptsit as apoliti- 
cal given that in a crisis (when 
“something happens”), the public 
expects a president to show Ms 
stuff. It is theater, but it reflects a 
deep and legitimate popular de- 
mand for command ai tbe helm. 
Mr. McCurdy, although be has a 
different policy prescription for 
Bosnia, sees tbe political value of 
coming before the public as a reas- 
suring foreign pobey leader. 

Mr. Qrmon is sufl feeling Ms way 
between the publics isolations and , 
internationalist tendencies. His am- ’ 
bsvaleace has kepthim on the ifefcn-

Stift the jabs from tbe Ekes of 
Messrs. Dok and McCurdy seem to 
arise more firm a national edgmess. 
than from deep discontent- The ' 
country is hardly at tbe stage of a

Fresh Look at Japan’s Art 

■By Card Lmfy

Munroegoes to great pams to establish the socio- 

OKOHAMA, Japan — When the Yo- 
kohama Museum of Art announced in 
1991 that it had selected an American to 
curate the most ambitious postwar Jap- 
in the nation's bistay, the news 1 
would one of Japan’s 

political and historical backdrop against which a 

s bom. Fa 

most prestigious art institutions abdicate that re- 

ity to a foreigner? And how could Alexan- 
dra Munroc, a New York-based curator, be expect- 
ed to know more 1 than her Japanese colleagues 
about Japanese art? 

These concerns were followed by rumor— sane 
of which came from within the museum— that the 
exhibition would be aflop. The selections, it was 
said, were dull; and there were too Sew works pee 
artist, some of whom were threatening to poll oul 
■ As the opening approached, wooed began .to; 
spread that Munroc, a wett-rcgarded expert on 
Japanese art, had beat set up for a falL'Shc would 
become the latest in along string of reminders that 
foreigners will never master the finer pants of 
Japanese culture. 

It is a welcome surprise, then, that** Japanese Art 
After-1945: Scream Against the Sky,” oaMew at the 
Yokohama Museum through March 31, is a stun- 
ning, if controversial, success. The survey of about 
200 works by roughly 70 artists casts .the Japanese- 
avant-garde in h$ most credible and provocative 
light to date. From the Outai Group — a highly 
experimental, perfeemanro-orieuted, Xansai-based 
movement founded in 1954 — : to thepi^lfiretoo 
genoation erf artists who are grapptirig with issues of 
national identity, the exhibition succeeds in creating 
a new and viable context for Japaneseart 

Indeed, "Scream Against the Sky"; is character- 
ized by a revisionist spirit. It is also distinguished 
by Munroe’s rigorous scholarship and sharp eye, 
and by a fineJy-ttmed installation, overseen by 
Taro Amano, associate cmatorattlic museum. 

But the higgest triujnph of ihe exhibition is its 

art wblffiS fragmented 
and political, whereapredfleefion for documen ts- : 
lion outweighs analysis and where even the most 
rejected curators seem more comfortable jump- 
ing on the bandw^on than starting atirad, Mon- 
roe has tabs a loro forward for Japart-by giving 
the exhibition a hiM% imfividiKiBstici spin. 

At the heart of the show is the question of what 

notion of Japanese modernity was bom. Far from 
imitating Western art, the show argues that 
through movements Eke Gutai and Mono-Ha (a 
late 1 960s group that explores the essence of being 
Asian), the Japanese avant-garde has been moti- 
vated largely by anti-establishment. anti-Western 
sentiments. The exhibition also gives artists like 
On Kawara, Ay-0 and Yoiko Ono their due as 
early innovators of international movements, like 
Fluxus and Conceptual Art. 

"Scream Against the Sky” — the title comes 
' from a conceptual music score by Yako Ono — is 
at once thdnatic and chronotomcal, beaming 
with a section on Gntai, which incudes al Inst one 
masterpiece; Astute Tanaka's “Electric Dress,” a 
costume dan gling with vibrantly painted light 
bulbs and electrical wires in which she performed. 

From Gtriai, the exhibition takes an unexpected, 
but important, turn toward the traditional avant- 
garde, introducing toe bold, almost abstract, callig- 
raphy at Sofa Teshigahara and Yiwdri Inoue, and 
tire sensual vessels of Kazoo Yagi from the 1960s. 

In oentrast with these worts, the exhibition goes 
on to explore anti-art, anarchist and visually abhor- 
rent tendencies of roughly the same decade. The 
highlights indude a series of Hack and white photos, 
at once alluring and revolting, by Shomei Tomatsu; 
four mixed media pieces by Testumi Kndo — dark, 
explosive works that explore Us obsession with 
mntilgfmn and deterioration of (be human body. 
There is also a powerful installation devoted to 
Ibtomti Hijflrm*, the founder of the grotesque 
dance form Ankokn Botch, which has largely 
shaped Japan’s contemporary performance art 
. That toe painting section is the least inspired m 
the exhibition, reflects an inherent weakness in 
Japanese art. Unfortunately, this weakness is exac- 
erbated by Munroc’s mysteriously poor selections. 
Lee U-Fan, the central theoretician behind Mono- 
Ha; tor njstanpe, is represented by three works, two 
V^ducfe^^exwiL AlI are flimsy and without any . 
historical relevance.

genheim's SoHo branch inNew Yak tins fall and to

Paris Is the Place for African Sculpture 

huemamtal Herald Tribune 

P ARIS — For anyone who 
ever thought cf collecting 
primitive art, now is the 
lime and Paris the place. 
The African sculpture that influ- 
enced Picasso and Braque as they 
embarked on their first Cubist ex- 
periments, has gradually receded 
into the background. At auction, 
competition has softened, making a 
market where the top remains 
available and the lower echelon 
sometimes very good, almost irre- 
sistible to an adventurous mind. 

Middle-of-the-road auctions 
such as the sale conducted on Moc- 


day by Jean-Louis Picard at 
Drouot deserve to be dosdy fol- 
lowed. They often include same of 
the art amassed in huge quantities 
by the French in colonial and post 
colonial times. In contrast to Brit- 
ons, many French residents, often 
Iron modest backgrounds, had 
their curiosity aroused by their Af- 
rican surroundings. It started as an 
amusement and developed into a

one of them. He traveled to distant 
parts of the country, buying arti- 
facts in villages, and studying them

a slim brochure, “African Art, a 
Selection of Two Private Collec- 

Did he have a commercial pur- 
pose in mind? Almost certainly not.

T HAT some pieces pub-

found their way into 
Drxjuot’s sale does not 
disprove the point. In the world of 
collectors, the barriers between 
buying for art’s sake and occasion- 
al dealing can get hazy. This seems 
to be particularly true with African 
art where acquiring the objects is 
part of the learning process. Yon 
discover artifacts of a previously 
unrecorded type, as you buy them. 
This can give a pleasure as intense 
as possession. 

Blandin kept researching, an in- 
terest shared by his wife who 
taught in a secondary school. In 
1988, be published a study on West 
African braize making, “Bronzes 
et autres alliagps,” followed in 1992 
by another on ironsnriths, **Fer

The discovery instinct is strong 
among the French and may explain 
the extraordinary attendance at 
Primitive Art sales in Paris in con- 
trast to London or New York. On 
Monday, the room at Drouot was 
parked beyond capacity with deal- 
ers and collectors, including Blan- 
din. Even though marry bought 
nothing, they followed the proceed- 
ings with intense conccatration. 

They would not have missed the

“African Art” This cost the East 
Coast collector 18,615 francs. It is 
not nearly as good as the previous 

It took the next lot, however, to 
trigger a real bout of coQeciing hu- 
bris. This was a couple of free- 
standing figures, man and woman, 
from the Lobi people, a confedera- 
tion of related groups straddling 
the northern area of the Ivory Cast, 
Ghana and Burkina-Faso. The 
Lob is were revealed to the Weston 
world by ihe French ethnologist 
Andre Labouret in his bode “Les 
uibus du rameau LobL” published 
in 1931. He calls such objects an- 
cestor figures. Id 1981. Piet Meyer 
look another look at the “Art and 
Religion of the Lobi" in ibe cata- 
logue of the Rietberg Museum ex- 
hibition where the matching figures 
are illustrated.

no one did, where it seemed well 
worth a try. 

Early in the sale the tusk of an 
elephant carved into a sounding 
horn by an Artie artist dropped 
dead, unsold at 6,800 francs (about 
$1,160). Thinned down in order to 
acquire a perfect curvature, the 
tusk is terminated at the end with 
the brad of a calao bird handled in 
a geometric style that dwarfs much 
of modem sculpture into insignifi- 
cance by comparison. It had a fine 
honey patina indicating age. Yet, 
'not one bid came from the room for 
the piece, which carried a modest 
7,000 to 10.000 franc estimate. 

As Alain de Monbrison, a promi- 
nent Paris dealer, explains: “Col- 
lectors of African art are not very 
keen on ivory,” adding after a 
pause, “the bead is not sufficiently 
pretty/' It seemed marvelous 
enough tome. 

But parallels with modem art 
rarely make a difference. It hardly 
helped a Baoule mask from die 
Beomi district that was sold for a 
modest 17,520 francs. The disk 
with bead-like eyes in low relief has 
a rectangular mouth. A slit allows 
the tongue to appear — a rarity, the 
sale expert Guy Monlbaibon wrote 
in the catalogue. With its boms, it 

irresistibly calls to mind some 
bronze mask hy Max Ernst Curi- 
ously, while the impact of African 
art on Cubism is much talked 
about, the debt of Surrealism to its 
sculpture is virtually overlooked. 

Pierre Amroucbe. the highly cul- 
tivated dealer and connoisseur who 
also performs as an expert in Primi- 
tive Art at Drouot says that Aimfc 
Maeght had a mask of the same 
model, much finer as he recalls, 
that sold al Drouot in 1982 for 
32,000 francs. No wonder that the 
dealer of Picasso and other tower- 
ing figures of modem art in post- 
World War II France was fascinat- 
ed by the type. 

Perhaps the least expensive piece 
seen with the eyes of a 20th-century 
art collector was a Gob mask. The 
concave disk is carved with tiny 
round eyes in relief, wide apart on 
either side of two parallel grooved 
bars. These cut across the disk and 
project well beyond, almost erasing 
any suggestion of the human face. 
Add the powdery coloring in pale 
beige, pink, off-white, and the Goli 
marie stands halfway between ibe 
spoofier creations in Ernst’s oeuvre 
and the Cubist low-reliefs in terra- 
cotta made by Henri Laurens in the 
1920s. Al 12.045 francs, it was 

within the reach of many, but want- 
ed by few among the cognoscenti. 

This disregard was by no means 
due to any lack of enthusiasm on 
their part when the occasion war- 
ranted it. Two lots down after the 
failed ivory horn, a fiy-swaiter de- 
scribed as either from the Agni or 
the At tie people in Ivory Coast ex- 
cited every one. The handle carved 
out of dark wood with a deep, near- 
black patina is topped by a stylized 
human farad that conjures up im- 
ages of Modigliani's art. What the 
collectors and dealers loved about 
it, however, was the detail — the 
incisions and light relief motifs al 
the bad; of the head, the ritual 
marks, ihe patina. The American 
collector Bryan Leiden, who close- 
ly focuses on lvoiy Coast cultures, 
had made the trip, and wanted it 
badly. Monbrison. wanted it too. 
He got it for 19,162 francs, twice 
the high estimate, with Leiden as 
the underbidder. 

Leaden then relieved his frustra- 
tion by gelling the next piece; a 
small black patinated figure made 
by Ihe Abron subgroup of the Akan 
people in the Bondoukou area. 
Rare and old, the Abron sculpture 
is one of the pieces that Blandin 
illustrated in the 1976 pamphlet. 

F needed before the 

nuances of Lobi meta- 
physics — African cults 
are rarely considered by profes- 
sional philosophers — and rites can 
by Fully understood. But there can- 
not be much doubt about the vigor 
of the feeling underlying the an. 
The angular stylization made more 
striking by the pale toning of the 
wood, the expressiveness of the 
faces, is remarkable. Amrouche, 
who knows the area well, says the 
cult survives undisturbed, with the 
art still alive. But it is rare to find 
early figures that match. In the con- 
fusion of transportation to the 
West, they often get separated and 
wrongly reassembled. Whatever 
the reasons, this pair created a deep 
impression. Two French collectors 
fought furiously, one eventually 
carrying away the prize to the tune 
of 125,920 francs; nearly four limes 
the estimate. 

At the end of the sale; Blandin 
seemed satisfied. He, or Picard on 
his behalf with the help of Mont- 
barbon, had gotten his fellow col- 
lectors where be wanted them, and 
beyond in a few cases. In the big art 
game, this is always a nice feeung. 
particularly in a difficult market. 

Blandin was relieved to get back 
a rare piece on which he was keen, a 
seated figure acquired in a Sikas 
village near the Ivory Coast border 
with MalL Other unsold pieces 
might find a niche someday. Time 
in Africa is immaterial And to a 
collector who spends his retirement

New York Finds Vibrant New Role 

Exports of Services Take Center Stage as Factories Fade 

By Tom Redburn 

Ntw York Times Service 

NEW YORK — The long^evolving shape 
of New York’s economy is now clearly 

Mass production, whether in automobiles, 
chemicals or beer, has mostly disappeared 
from New York Gw and its environs. Only I 
in 16 of the 73 minion people employed in 
the region stiD labors on a factory floor. At 
the same time, readmits of the stales of New 
York, New Jersey and Connecticut earn near- 
ly 25 percent above the national average. 

The weight of the region has diminished to 
where it accounts for less than 8 percent of 
US. output But as its position in the U.S. 
economy declines, metropolitan New York is 
becoming the global economy’s leading mar- 

Overseas business, while hard to track, 
contributes much more to the region’s eco- 
nomic fife than it did a decade ago. That is 
because America’s exports of services — New 
York’s slock in trade — have soared more 
than ISO percent since 1985 to almost $200 

New York’s regional economy was once 
the most broad-based and diverse in the 
United States, generating almost one of every 
five dollars produced in the early post-Worid 
War II boom. 

Now the New York region is becoming 
something new under the sun. Most econom- 
ic centers ship goods elsewhere and consume 
their services locally. By contrast, the manu- 
facturing that remains m the New York re- 
gion is heavily devoted to the local market 
while its cutting-edge services — finance, law. 

communications, popular culture and medi- 
cine — are increasingly in demand through- 
out the global economy. 

“We're a major player in the global econo- 
my because of our services, not because of 
our manufacturing,” said Richard W. Roper, 
director of economic and policy analysis at 
the Port Authority of New York and New 

“This region is a magnet for foreign firms 
that want to get a foothold in the North 
American market,” he said. “And almost any 
U.S. company that wants 10 compete actively 
in the international arena needs to have some 
kind of a presence here.” 

For the New York economy, the rapid 
change in telecommunications and manage- 
ment is both a curse and a blessing. On the 
one hand, such innovations undercut New 
York as a cental big business by making it 
easier for companies to run tfidr affairs from 
Atlanta or Houston or Columbus. 

But they also benefit the region: As the 
global economy becomes smaller, clusters of 
brain workers like Wall Street's investment 
bankers or Madison Avenue’s world-class 
marketeers gain a far larger market in which 
to sell their wares. 

“What is holding New York together, par- 
adoxically, is what is allowing the wodd 
economy to spread further afield,” said Sas- 
kia Sassen, a Columbia University professor 
who wrote “The Global Gty: New York, 
London, Tokyo.” 

Five or six years ago, Tokyo seemed on a 
trajectory to surpass New York as the world’s 
premier financial center. The air has since 

gone out of that balloon, however. And the 
share of global capital that flows through 
New York is once again on the rise. 

To be sure, neither New York nor ihe 
United States will ever be the powers they 
were when big companies like RCA, Exxon 
and IBM ruled the U.S. economy from Man- 
hattan headquarters. 

The good news for the region’s economy, 
though, is that thousands of newer, more 
dynamic companies are producing custom- 
tailored goods and services, from an Aragon 
stereo amplifier for audiophiles to boutique 
breweries like New Amsterdam Beer. 

Consider Magda Sole, a young woman 
whose 4-year-old company provides cross- 
cultural marketing for major U-S. corpora- 
tions doing business abroad. The birth of the 
new economy from the ashes of the old came 
home to her in one crystalline moment last 

Ms. Sde was moving her firm, Trans-Im- 
age International Communications, into a 
turn -of - the-oen t ury industrial building in 
lower Manhattan. 

As she arrived to inspect the newly remod- 
eled ninth- floor offices — now bristling with 
computers, fax machines and video editing 
equipment — movers were wrestling the last 
of several heavy, ink-stained priming presses 
on cables down the elevator shaft of the 14- 
story budding and off to oblivion. 

“The end of an era passed right before my 
eyes," she recalled. “Yet it was also the start 
of a new one." 

The stability that temples of business like

The Rout Deepens in U.S. Bond Market 

Compiled by Our Staff From Dnpmcha 

NEW YORK — The yield on the 
benchmark UJL 30-year Treasury 
bond surged Friday to ihe highest 
levd since late last July amid con- 
cern that faster economic growth 
win generate more inflation, the 
bond market’s enemy. 

The long bond yield jumped to 
6.62 parent from 6J4 percent 
Thursday, vyh3e the price plunged 
1 3/32 point, to 95 6/32. Weakness 
in the bond market dragged down 
Wall Street, with the Dow Jones 
industrial average dosing down 
35.18 pamts at 3.897.46. 

Losers led gainers by a 2-to-l 
ratio on the New York Stock Ex- 

change on moderate volume of 292 
million shar es. 

Higher interest rates weigh on 
the stock market because they 
make it more expensive for compa- 
nies to do business, and they make 
stocks relatively less attractive as 
an investment than fixed-income 

“People are ihmking with the 
economy doing so wdl in the' 
fourth quarter, the odds are that 
inflation will be higher.** said Ed- 
ward Yarden i, chief economist at 
CJ. Lawrence Deutsche Bank Se- 
curities Inc. 

Faster economic growth is asso- 
ciated with a rising inflation rate, 
which erodes the value of fixed- 

income securities and could cause 
the Federal Reserve Board 10 raise 
interest rates 10 try to keep infla- 
tion in check. 

The Fed nudged up short-term 
rates two weeks ago for the first 
time in five years. Speculation 
about when the next such move 
might come has buffeted the finan- 
cial markets since. 

“We may get some attempts at a 
rally, but when the Fed begins the 
process of raising interest rates, 
that’s about it,” said Stanley 
Rourke, a vice pres dent at Nation- 
al Gty Trust-Ken tacky. 

“My guess is that it’s at least the 
begmmng of the end,” of the bond 
rally that begum in September 

1 990, Mr. Rourke said. “I wouldn’t 
bn on rates going below 6 percent 
by the end of the year. Within the 
next year and a half, 7 percent 
wouldn't be unreasonable at alL” 
The record low long bond yield 
was 5.77 percent, set on Ocl 15. 

“Rates arc too low given the in- 
flation outlook,” said Roger Mar- 
shall, president of Riggs Invest- 
ment Management CoTp_ which 
manag es $2 billion in fixed-income 
assets. Tm not going to buy a 5.75 
percent bond with 3 percent infla- 
tion — it’s not going to happen.”

A Hosokawa Fan, 
Mondale Now 
Seems to Waver 

By Paul Blustein 

Washington Past Service 

TOKYO — Until recently, Wal- 
ter F. Mondale, the U.S. ambassa- 
dor to Japan, could be counted as 
one of the most enthusiastic boost- 
era of Prime Minister Morihiro Ho- 
sokawa and a strong proponent of 
the view that Mr. Hosokawa's re- 
form movement represented a 
bright hope for opening up Japan’s 
heavily regulated economy. 

But Friday, Mr. Mondale sound- 
ed like a disillusioned man as he 
criticized Mr. Hosokawa’s govern- 
ment for failing 10 deliver on a host 
of economic and trade issues. 

“In the political reform area, in 
our opinion be gets very high grades, 
but in the economic reform area we 
have not seen much by way of dereg- 
ulation and market opening by this 
govermnem." Mr. Mondale said 
shortly after returning from Wash- 
ington, where he attended the failed 
summit meeting between Mr. Ho- 
sokawa and President Bill Clinton. 

Mr. Mondale’s comments under- 
scored the deterioration in eco- 
nomic relations between Washing- 
ton and Tokyo after negotiations 
broke down on the “framework” 
agreement governing trade and 
other bilateral economic issues. 

The criticism by the former U.S. 
vice president was aimed not only 
at Mr. Hosokawa's refusal to com- 
promise with U.S. demands for nu- 
merical targets for Japanese pur- 
chases of foreign goods. The 
ambassador concentrated most of 
his fire on Mr. Hosokawa's lack of 
forcefulness in pursuing the elimi- 
nation of burdensome regulations. 

Shortly after Mr. Hosokawa took 
power, Mr. Mondale said, “they an- 
nounced 94 deregulation measures, 
that they themselves said were mod- 
est. They’ve done none of them." 

But more important, Mr. Mon- 
dale said, “When we urged this 
government to stimulate the econo- 
my, to do something to bring down 
the imbalance, essentially the Min- 
istry of Finance — with the support 
of the prime minister’s office — 
opposed iL” 

In the week since the summit 

meeting, Mr. Hosokawa has 
launched an initiative to patch 
things up with Washington, order- 
ing government ministries to pro- 
duce an emergency package of pro- 
posals for deregulation, import 
promotion, and stricter antitrust 

Tbe idea is to show that Japan 
wants 10 moke its markets more 
accessible to foreign firms without 
resorting 10 the numerical targets 

sought by the U.S. government. 

But Mr. Mondale voiced skepti- 
cism about such promises, stating 
that while the impact of the govern- 
ment's moves “could be very signif- 
icant. we have not seen anything 
yet along that line.” 

Mud Starts to Fly 
In Dispute Over 
Cellular Phones 

Compiled by Our Staff From Dispatches 

TOKYO — A dispute over limit- 
ed U.S. access to Japan's ceil alar 
telephone markeL deteriorated into 
mudslinging Friday, as a Japanese 
official accused Motorola Inc. of 
making misleading statements. 

Yo&nio Uisunri, a Posts and Tele- 
communications Ministry official, 
said Motorola was “testing the 
nerves more than necessary” in an 
attempt to increase its market share. 

“What they are doing is nothing 
but an extremely one-sided, inten- 
tionally misleading advertisement.” 
Mr. Utsiani said. “We wish they 
would stop doing such a thing.” 

Mr. Uisumi was referring to Mo- 
torola's assertion that Japanese 
government decisions have blocked 
its access to Japan’s markeL 

Motorola has a 40 percent mar- 
ket share of the global cellular 
phone market. 

On Tuesday. U.S. Trade Repre- 
sentative Mickey Kan tor accused 
Japan of breaking a 1989 agree- 
ment that promised Motorola mar- 
ket access in Japan “comparable” 
to the U.S. market share enjoyed by 
Japanese makers.

WASHINGTON — Ask a Japa- 
nese diplomat why the summit con- 
ference between President Bill 
Clinton and Prime Minister Mori- 
hiro Hosokawa failed last week and 
the answer usually comes back 
quickly: Mickey Kantor. 

In the common Japanese ver- 
sion, it was a pugnacious U.S. trade 
negotiator who played the decisive 
role during tbe final futile attempt 
last week to strike a deal on shrink- 
ing Japan’s huge global trade sur- 
plus. “Ambassador Kantor inter- 
vened,” said the chief Japanese 
negotiator, Koichiro Maisuura, de- 
scribing a moment shortly before 4 
A.M. Friday when the last hope of 
c o mpro mi se evaporated. 

In an interview Thursday with 
Washington Pest editors and re-

the basic misunderstandings that 
have pushed the state of economic 
relations between tbe two countries 
to a new low, these officials said. 
Japan's problems begin not with 
Mr. Kantor. but with his boss.

wdl in last year’s battles over 
NAFTA and GATT — the North 
American Free Trade Agreement 
and the General Agreement on 
Tariffs and Trade — but has nor 
succeeded so far with Japan. 

This week Mr. Kantor took the 
first step toward imposing trade 
sanctions on several hundred mil- 
lion dollars’ worth of Japanese 
products after finding that Japan 
had violated a 1989 agreement to 
expand opportunities for Motorola 
Inc's ceDular telephone sales. 

Other actions are under consid- 
eration to respond to the break- 
down of the broader trade talks last 
Friday, although Mr. Kantor 
would’ not discuss the options dur- 
ing his lunch meeting. 

“It is viewed by some as a crisis/ 4 
said Mr. Kantor. “I believe you can

ences over trade, Mr. Gtinton and 
Mr. Hosokawa have moved their 
countries' dialogue onto a more 
honest and straightforward plane 
that can lead ultimately to a real 
resolution, Mr. Kantor said. 

Mr. Kan tor’s successes in the 
past year have resulted not only 
from his tenacity but also his stall 
in deahxrekmg. 

A novice on trade matters when 
he was appointed last year, he won

Blinder on list 
For No. 2 Spot 
On Fed Board 

Bloomberg Business New 

Blinder, a member of the pres- 
ident's Council of Economic 
Advisers, said Friday that he 
was a candidate to become 
vice chairman of the Federal 
Reserve Board. 

He said his name was “on 

the fist.” 

If appointed and coafinntri, 
Mr. Bfinder wcxdd succeed Da- 
vid Mullins, who resigned the 
No. 2 Fed job. As vice chair- 
man, Mr. Bhnder would be in a 
position to succeed Alan Green- 
span if Mr. Greenspan is not 
reappointed when his term as 
Hwrrmart ends in March 1996. 

Mr. Blinder would be Presi- 
dent Bill Clinton’s first ap- 
pointment to the Fed. He is 
widely regarded as a liberal 
who at tbe Fed would be a 
softer foe of inflation than Mr. 
Greenspan or Mr. Mullins. 

compromises that saved the 
NAFTA and GATT accords. 

But the Japanese say they have 
yet to see that side of him. 

The impact of Mr. Kantor’s hard 
line on Japan is most evident in his 
handling ova the past year of a 
U.S-- Japanese agreement on senn- 

it is viewed by 
some as a crisis. I 
believe you can 
look at this in a 
positive way.’ 

Mickey Kantor 

conductors negotiated and re- 
newed during the two previous Re- 
publican administrations. 

The agreement speaks of Japan’s 
“expectation" that foreign chip 
man ufacturers would gain 20 per- 
cent of rts market by 1993. 

To Mr. Kantor, it represented 
something more than a promise to 

try. If the 20 percent figure is not 
met, it would be “a commitment 
not kept,” he told reporters last 
March. “It makes me more corn- 
mined than ever to make sure this 
agreement is adhered to,” Mr. Kan- 
tor said then. 

To Japanese listeners, that 
sounded uke a threat and hardened 
their resolve not to sign another 
agreement with the administration 
that contained other numbers that 
might be similarly used to justify 
UJS. retaliation. 

Mr. Kantor said Thursday that 
be recomiized that this fear is part 
of the deep misgivings between the 
two countries that make an agree- 
ment now so hard to reach. 

The administration is fed up 
with agreements that do not yield 
results, he said. 

Mr. Clinton and Mr. Kantor 
have both assured Japan that the 
administration is not seeking an- 
other semiconductor agreement, 
with a single numerical target that 
Japan must hit. Rather, it wants a 
broad range of benchmarks that, 
taken together, would show wbeth- 


er Japan is, indeed, opening its 
markets to foreign goods, Mr. Kan- 
tor said. 

Mr. Kantor repeated these assur- 
ances Monday to a group of senior 
UJS. and Japanese business execu- 

But he did not pass up the oppor- 
tunity to tell the Japanese corpo- 
rate chiefs that there was nothing 
wrong with the semiconductor 
agreement, which did push Japa- 
nese semicoiKhtotor purchases up 
to tbe 20 percent threshold. It 
worked, he said. 

One of executives present, Yo- 
taro Kobayashi, chairman of Fuji 
Xerox, declared himself “more 
confused than ever.” 

The question both sides are ask- 
ing is bow to build a new bridge 
over the mistrust that separates 
them. For now, at least, Mr. Kan- 
tor said Thursday, it is up to Mir. 
Hosokawa to make the move that 
ends the impasse. 

“It's going to lake some creative 
thinking on the pan of the Japa- 
nese" to pul tbe talks back togeth- 
er, he said. 


Within the framework of an international consultation, 
the Executive Council for Major Projects in Lebanon

Wall Street Slump 
Depresses Dollar 

Blomberg Businas Meifl 

NEW YORK — The dollar fdl 
against the Deutsche mark and 
most other major currencies on Fri- 
day as investors bailed out of US. 
stodss and bonds. 

It rose against the yen, in the 
meantime, amid speculation that 
the U.S. and Japan could resume 
trade negotiations. 

“There’s a lack of confidence in 
U.S. assets right now, including the 

Foreign Exchange 

dollar,’' said Karl Halligan, a pro- 
prietary trader at FNG Capital 

The dollar dosed at 2.7140 DM, 
down from 1.7222 DM on Thurs- 
day. It rose to 104.625 yen from 
104.20 yen. 

Prospects for higher rates often 
buoy the dollar because a rate in- 

crease would make U.S. deposits 

raore attractive. The dollar fe 
day because investors were more 
concerned about the flow of money 
out of doUar-denonnnated assets, 
traders said. 

Moreover, many dollar bulls lose 
faith in the currency after it failed 
to rally on Thursday, when the 
Bundesbank cut its discount rate. 

“Nothing can gel the dollar mov- 
ing higher, said Kevin Lawrie, a 

foreign exchange manager at Mel- 
lon Bank in Pittsburgh. “People are 
getting disappointed.'’ 

The dollar has fallen almost 3 
percent against the mark in the last 
two weeks, even though the Fed 
raised rates for the first time in five 
years and the Bundesbank cm 

Large losses agains t the yen also 
hurt the dollar during the week, 
traders said. The dollar started 
tumbling the previous Friday when 
trade talks between the United 
States and Japan collapsed. 

Traders sold dollars, betting that 
the Uni led States, frustrated at the 
bargaining table, would resume 
calls for a strong yen. Last year, the 
administration said repeatedly that 
a strong yen could curb Japan's 
trade surplus by making its exports 
more expensive. 

The dollar eked out a small gain 
against the yen Friday after Prune 
Minister Morihiro Hosokawa said 
his administration woukf do its ut- 
most to resolve the U.S.-Japanese 
trade dispute. The CKnton admin- 
istration is considered less likely to 
call for a strong yen if trade talks 

Traders were especially wary this 
weekend because most of them will 
be away from the market on Mon- 
day for Presidents' Day, he said. 

The pound closed at S1.4820, up 
slightly from $1.4800 on Thursday. 
The dollar fell to 5.8250 French 
francs from 5.8545 francs and 
slumped to 1.4449 Swiss francs 
from 1.4565. 

BONDS: Market's Rout Deepens 

ContiraKd from Page 9 
Sachs & Co., one of the five largest 
U.S. bond trading firms, was fore- 
casting that Fed officials would 
raise rates any day now. 

But a Goldman, Sachs economist 
said his firm did not expect any 
Fed action on til after the next 
meeting of the Federal Open Mar- 
ket Committee, set for March 22. 

In pulling prices down two 
points in two days, bond investors 

N.Y. Stocks 

didn't cozy to the government's re- 
port Thursday that consumer 
prices were unchanged last month 
and up just 23 percent in the 12 
months ended in January. Last 
year, consumer prices rose 2.7 per- 
cent, the smallest annual increase 
since 1986, when prices rose 12 

Investors shrugged off the report 
partly because the Labor Depart- 
ment changed the way it calculates 
the figure and partly because it is a 
lagging indicator — it reveals what 
prices were, not what they win be. 

Inflation fears were fanned 
Thursday by a survey of manufac- 
turers from the Federal Reserve 
Bank of Philadelphia, which said 
prices for raw materials rose more 
than 30 percent. 

The bond market also was jittery 

because the Federal Reserve Board 
chairman, Alan Greenspan, is to 
begin testimony to Congress on 
Tuesday, the first day after a long 
holiday weekend. U JS. markets will 
be closed Monday for Presidents 

In addition to the drag from the 
Treasury bond market, the stock 
market struggled with added vola- 
tility because of the expiration of 
equity derivatives. A round of pro- 
gram selling also intensified losses. 

Stocks of companies sensitive to 
economic changes were among the 
biggest losers. These cyclical issues 
recently have been bid up amid 
signs of gathering economic mo- 

Paramount Communications 

continued to slide, losing Ilk to 
rom Vi 

74% in the fallout from Viacom's 
takeover earlier this week. Viacom 
Inc. fed IW, to 25M, but Blockbust- 
er Entertainment, indirectly linked 
to the Paramount deal through Via- 
com, rose % to 24%. 

Boeing lost Vi to 47% in active 
trading, setting back after rallying 
this week on news Saudi Arabia 
would buy commercial aircraft 
from it and McDonnell Douglas. 
McDonnell Douglas continued to 
gain, adding % to 120%. 

Ventritex tumbled 10% to 26% in 
heavy over-the-counter trading

In Discount Rate 


FRANKFURT — * German 
stock and bond markets weakened 
Friday as investors reacted with 
disappointment to what was widely 
seen as only a half-hearted interest 
rate cut by the Bundesbank on 

After an initial surge Thursday 
in the aftennath of the Bundes- 
bank’s half -point cut in the dis- 
count rate to 5.25 percent, both 
bond and share prices enA»rf .Fri- 
day lower. 

Although the German move trig- 
gered a round of interest rate cuts 
throughout Europe, domestic mar- 
kets felt cheated as another key 
rate, the securities repurchase ra te. 
was left unchanged. 

On Friday, the Danish central 
bank cut its discount and key de- 
posit rate to 5.50 percent from 5.75 
percent Sweden cut its key margin- 
al rale to 725 from 7-5 percent the 
Bank of Finland’s money marke t 
tender rate fell to 4.75 from 4.95 
percent and the Rank of Spain re- 
duced its daily intervention rate by 
about 025 to around 8.55 percent. 

In Zurich, Switzerland’s central 
bank added liquidity to the money 
market Friday, a move seen as a 
signal to markets that Swiss inter- 
est rales had further to falL 

Austria, the Netherlands, Bel- 
gium and Italy had cut rates on 
Thursday. But French interest rates 
held steady. 

On the F rankfo rt a reh a ny the

The Associated Pren. 

LISBON — Portugal will merge 
its three staie-nm telecommunica-

vate company into a single entity to 
be known as Portugal-Tdecom, the 
Finance Ministry said Friday.

The merger date will be an- 
nounced after the four conmaznes’

. The Bundesbank’s most impor- 
tant interest rate,. the repurchase 
rate, or repo rate, was left un- 
changed at o percent cm Thursday, 
the level that has prevailed since 
early December. 

Nigel Langley, an institutional 
adviser at Commerzbank, said: 
"The market was disconcerted by 
the. fact thaL the repo rale was not

strong cut” 

■Richard Reid, an econ omis t with 
Union Bank of Switzerland in 
Frankfurt, predieted, another dis- 
count rate cot at the end of April 
and another move around July. He 
saw a 4 percent discount rate by the 
end of 1994. 

■ Paris Broaches Rate Move 
- France’s finance minis ter, Ed- 
mond Aiphandfiry, said Friday that 
the Bundesbank? rate cot would 
give the Bank of France “more 
room for maneuver.” Agence 
France-Presse reported from Paris. 

He said the German move 
“opens the door to lower interest 
rates in Europe, which we all need 
in view of the European economic 
situation.” But he noted that re- 
sponsibility for lower rates “now

In Taranto, Steel Is No Longer King 

Giant Mill’s Decline Mirrors Southern Italy’s Troubles 



By John Tagliabue 

New York Times Service 

TARANTO, Italy — Day and 
night, the smokestacks at the big 
Ova sted mill heave plumes of 
orange, black and white into the 
Mediterranean sky, a right that 
once inspired government leaders 
to praise it as a “cathedral in the 
desert” that would heal a schism 
between Italy’s prosperous north 
and undeveloped sooth. 

. Built in the early 1960s as pan 
of a drive to develop southern 
industry, the Eva mill is still reck- 
oned to be Western Europe’s 
lamest. But it has become a sym- 
bol of southern Italy’s crisis, and 
a challenge to the country's 
imaginat ion as it moves toward 
electing a national legislature 
whose task wifi be to revive the 

timeotin theNonh^^ 

That is not to suggest that the 
changes sweeping Italy have by- 
passed the people of Taranto. 

The big sted plant is part of the 
government’s sweeping plan to 
privatize state industries. The war 
against corruption in the region is 

tion 140.000, has an dectedlnay- 
or for the fieri time since 1992, 
when the national government 
threw out the old dty government 
for corruption and installed an 

But so far the changes have 
only stirred uncertainty be- 
wilderment about the fu t u r e . The 
privatization of the mil] is certain 
to raise the local unemployment 
rate, already 25 percent. And so 

far a much-vaunted government 
program to create 4.000 alterna- 
tive jobs has produced only 300. 

Worst of all according to some 
people, the new mayor, a building 
contractor named Giancarlo 
Gto. is a hard neo-Fasrist who 
uses the private television station 
he owns to pillory opponents. 

The plight of southern cities 
like Taranto and the popularity 
of mavericks like Mr. Cito raise 
unsettling questions with the ap- 
proach of national elections 
March 27-2S. 

Luigi Abete, the head of Italy's 
Industry Association, warned re- 
cently that there was a “real risk” 
of election turmoil that would 
make Italy “difficult to govern." 

A trudge through Taranto, a 
dty of hospitable people who 
readily invite visitors for a home- 
cooked meal and lots of the re- 
gion’s deep purple wine, offers a 
vista of economic distress. 

The walk begins in the old dty, 
an island of boarded-up dwell- 
ings and decaying palazzi, then 
runs across an iron bridge into

80 percent off. 

the steel null was flung up in 
the early 1 960s on olive groves 
near the city , a crash project of 
Rome's plans to revive the south. 

They built the plant big. in a 
prevailing spirit of gigantism that 
has more recently come into 
question. Its output is roughly S 
million metric tons of sted a year 
— Europe’s largest 
Labor leaders insist that Ta- 
ranto’s sted production costs are 
competitive. But expens who 
have seen the plant say that pro- 
ductivity is low and that acci- 
dents continue, with two people 
killed just this month when an 
oxygen line ruptured at the plant 
Ludovico Vico, a union leader, 
says he has no doubt that the shut- 
down of inefficient operations 
would eliminate at least 1300 of 
the 12,000 jobs at the mill 
Like the fortunes of Taranto 
itself, the IWa mill's rise and de- 
cline have been linked to national 
and regional politics. 

In the 19ib century, while 
northern Italy industrialized as 
part of the Austro- Hungarian 
empire, the south lrtrigmchwl un- 
der the haphazard rules of the 
Bourbon kings of Naples. 

Italy's unification in 1861 re- 
vived the south, with Taranto, for 
example, becoming headquarters 
for the Italian fleet's southern 
command and gaining thousands 

of jobs. In the 1930s, the Fascists’ 
military buildup brought another 
spurt of prosperity. 

When the decline of the naval 
base at war’s end revived un em- 
ployment. the idea for the sted 
mill was bom. In addition to jobs, 
it was thought the mill would fos- 
ter a modem industrial culture 
and many steel-related businesses. 

The idea was repeated across 
southern Italy. In Taranto, local 
businesses sprang up that relied 
on the steel mill to stay alive. 

Whenever politicians in Rome 
feared that lost jobs would trans- 
late into lost votes, they subsi- 
dized the blast furnaces, even af- 
ter the the coils and sheets they 
produced became unprofitable 
amid a general glut in Europe. 

From 1970 to 1980. (he number 
of steel jobs rose from 9.800 to 

But with all the major Western 
European economies stretched 
thin by recession, the 12-nation 
European Union has long since 
ordered Italy to stop propping up 
industrial dinosaurs like Taranto. 

A coalition of businessmen, 
politicians and Catholic Church 
leaders who believe a tough new 
policy is needed is emerging in 
southern Italy. 

Gianfranco Borghini. an eco- 
nomic policy-maker in Rome 
from the Democratic Party of the 
Left — formerly the Communists 
— said Taranto offered two les- 
sons: “First, too much help only 
does damage in the end. Also, 
what is required is less public and 
more private investment, to set 
local energies free.” 

Alimiiniim Surges to 18 -Month Highs 


LONDON — Ahnnmum prices surged to 18- 
month highs on Friday as traders took heart 
from fresh promises to cut production. 

These promises, economists and traders be- 
lieve, suggest flat a global agreement to reduce 
the flood of metal into the market really could 

Prices on the London Metal Exchange have 
risen almost 20 percent since January. On Fri- 
day the metal was priced at $1,331 a metric ton, 
a nse of S 17 and ttehigbert since August 1992. 

The rise buoyed the rest of the industrial 
Tronic an the exchange though those prices 
later edged off a little. 

Last month in Brussels major western and 
Russian producers agreed cuts were essential to 
bring the. world’s whimmwm surplus under con- 

Three European smelters this week an- 
nounced aluminum output cuis totaling 93,000 
tons a year, and Russian officials insisted they 
would uphold their end of the bargain. 

“I was skeptical until recently.” said Neil 
Buxton at Metal Bulletin Research, an industri- 
al news letter. “It now depends on Russia." 

A global recession and surging exports from 
Russ a, whose domestic ahnmnum market had 
collapsed along with the Soviet Union, led to a 
fast rise in stocks. 

The latest announcements have helped railm 
an anxious market It was hearing promises of 
cuts from several countries but little action in 
Western Europe, which had initially pledged to 
lake 300,000 tons out of the markeL 

The West's cuts now total around 737.000 
tons while Russia has said its cuts already top 
100,000 tons and should be up to 300,000 by the 
end of ApriL

“If the West cuts output by one million ions 
and Russia cuts exports by 250,000 tons, it 
would put the market balance in a 400,000-ton 
deficit this year." Mr. Buxton said. 

Stocks at over 15 milli on tons in Lon- 
don Metal Exchange warehouses alone. “But in 
1995, if all cuts come through and remain in 
place there could be a deficit of 1.6 mil Hon 
tons," Mr. Buxton said. 

He warned, however, that higher prices 
caused by a large deficit may tempt some smelt- 
ers to reactivate idled capacity, going against 
the whole point of the current initiative. 

The al uminum market has also benefited this 
week from Japanese buying, as the firm yen 
gave the Japanese additional buying power, 
and a buOd-up in Chinese buying after their 
New Year celebrations.

Paris Counterattacks on Plus 

PARIS — The French govern- 
ment, to sQence accusations 
of political meddling in the media, 
hit back Friday at die unseated 
chairman of the pay-television sta- 
tion Canal Plus, accusing him of 
megalomania and fatal pnde. 

Andrfc Rousselet, founder of Ca- 
nal Plus, quit Monday, accusing 
the conservative prime minister, 
Edouard Bafiadur, of packing the 
boards of major companies with 
hand-picked loyalists. 

Interior Minister Charles Pasqua 
and Communications Minister 
Alain Carignon fired broadsides at 
Mr. Rousselet on Friday, in what 
appeared a concerted drive to pro- 
tect Mr. Bafiadur. 

“I think he has become a bit of a 
megalomaniac.” Mr. Pasqua told 
Europe- 1 radio. 

Mr. Carignon said in a newspaper 
article: “It was the future that con- 
spired against Mr. Rousselet. And, 
in a certain sense, pride killed him.”

NEW YORKi Exports of Services Expand as Production lines Shrink 

ContinBrd from Page 9 

IBM or Union Carbide once as- 
sured has disappeared, to be re- 
placed with frightening uncertain- 

“Even more than the nation as a 
whole, this region is in the midst of 
its own very painful transition," 
said Steven B. Schlossstein. a busi- 
ness consultant and economist in 
Princeton, New Jersey. 

Painful is right. While much of 
the nation emerged from recession 
two to three years ago, New York, 
New Jersey and Connecticut re- 
mained. until very recently, in a 
stubborn slump. 

Even as the U.S. economy had 
regained all the 1.9 million jobs lost 
in the downturn and added neariy 2 
nrilHon more by the end of 1993. 
employment in metropolitan New 
Yen is suB down 800,000 from its 
1989 peak of 8.1 million. 

Today, the regional economy is 
finally on the mend. Yet at best. 

economists ay. the New York ur- 
ban conglomeration wifi not regain 
all its lost jobs until the end of the 
decade. High taxes and heavy oper- 
ating costs, together with conges- 
tion. crime and other urban ills, 
will continue to hobble the region. 

Regional assets, in many cases, 
have become liabilities. Job gains 
will be retarded by New York's 
heavy dependence on the mam- 
moth corporations now slashing 
their work forces for greater pro- 
ductivity and competitiveness. 

AT&T, Xerox. Nynex and Pfizer 
are only the latest And prosperity 
on Wall Street no longer automati- 
cally translates into a stronger job 

“New York City has held up well 
as a world financial market.’’ 
Charles R. Morris, a business con- 
sultant and analyst, wrote in City 
Journal the quarterly publication 
Of the Manhat tan Institute. “Bull 
because of the increased automa- , 
lion of the industry, this does not 

portend continued high levels of 
employment and office-space con- 
sumption by the city’s financial ser- 
vices sector.” 

New York's greatest promise 
rests on the region's increasingly 
dose economic ties to the rest of 
the world. 

Its leading urban competitors 
are no longer so much Chicago, 
Miami and Houston as London 
and Tokyo. Financial-service firms 
here, for instance, have long been 
active globally. 

Today, such services, along with 
a wide range of business and pro- 
fessional activities, are among the 
country's fastest growing exports. 

So, too, are entertainment prod- 
ucts, from MTV to the National 
Basketball Association, which are 
headquartered here. And so are 
some of the high-quality, custom- 

ized goods still produced locally: 
jet engines, high fashion, specialty 
chemicals, industrial electronics. 

And back on Hudson Street in 
lower Manhattan, Trans Image’s 
Ms. Sole is starting to fed at borne. 

Ms. Sole, who is 35 and speaks 
seven languages, co-founded the 
international communications and 
translation firm in 1990 just as the 
recession was in full fury. It has 
prospered nonetheless. 

Transimage mirrors New York’s 
diversity, its central staff of 16 
come from all over the worid. Most 
of its corporate clients, such as 
Time Warner and American Ex- 
press, are headquartered here and 
looking overseas to expand. 

“New York," Ms. Sole said, “is 
the only truly cosmopolitan city in 
the U.S. We couldn’t have built this 
business anywhere else in the

Sega’s Hopes

t ,T^ Y 9 ~ Sega Tauaprisra 
L"L» m a sharp reversal of eroecta- 
tums, predicted on Friday that Jts 
annoal profit woold dn» for the 
first time in 12 years. 

Sega, which vies with Nintendo 
Ltd. for world leadership in video 
games and software, made the 
statement in a revision, of hs esti- 
mates for sales and earnings for the 
financial year ending March 31. 

The company Warned recession in 
Europe, a market whan k has eo- 
joyed particnlariy stiraigjrofit mar- 
gins, and the rise of die yen, which 
reduces profit earned abroad when 

fall about 20 percent from a year 
earKiae, Sega said. 

. ... Overall, Sega’s five European 
umts are likely to incur a combined 
pretax loss of close to 20 billion yen 
m the year, the company said. 

Sega said it now expected parent 
company pretax profit for the year 
would be around 42 trillion yen, 
down 24 percent from 55.02 MEon 
a year eadier and well below last 
November’s estimate of 5730 bil- 
lion yen. 

Parent company revenue in 
1993-94 is likely to be around 350 

billion yen, down from a Novem- 
ber forecast of 380 billion, but op 
slightly from an actual 346.94 bfl- 
bon tbe year before, Sega said. 

also l x squeezed by tough price 
competition in die United States 
and. by rising depredation after 
heavy investment on game centers.

Infomercialsfor China 

Multinationals Aim at a Vast Audience 


BEUTNG — When a Chmc^ American pro- 
moter offered 10 urinates of unfettered and virtual- 
ly free air time to a television audience of up to a 
quarter billion Chinese, Philip Morris executives 
jumped into action. 

“We saw this as a chance for very broad expo- 
sure to our products,” said Donald Harris, a vice 
president who oversees the conglomerate's ciga- 
rette, beer and food promotions m Aria. 

The result might best be called China's first 
“infomercials” —those ads that are dressed up as 
public affairs slum and are a fixture of American 
late-night television. 

In a marketing coup, the ID-minute shows 
filmed and financed by nrihp Morris Cos. and six 
other Americas companies appear on the world’s 
biggest public TV network not as product promo- 
tions but as “corporate profiles” on a news show. 
. “This is not ready a Marlboro commercial.” Mr. 
Harris said at ceremony late in January that kicked 
off the series at Beijing's Great Hall of the People. 

“Bert it is about all of the products Philip Morris 
makes, the kind of work we do around the world, 
along with a bit about our management and corpo- 
rate philosophy,” he said. 

- Slick offerings in Chinese featuri ng General 
Motors Corp., PepsiCo Intx, Goodyear Tire Co., 
Wal-Mart Stores Ino, American Telephone & 
Telegraph Co. and Wall Disney Co. fill out the 
first batch of profiles. TVeaty-two other compa- 
nies are filming their own profiles. 

The profiles are hard to define: Neither advertise- 
ments nor documentaries, they feature company 
workers discusring what they say are woorld-class 
products that management hopes to seB in C&na. 

John Feenie, chief of Disney Aria, said he was 
thrilled to have what he called a Gtina-wide show- 

seen as a commercial gold mine. The cash-starved 
government is eagerly exploiting its increasingly 
lucrative monopoly. 

Commercial ads on television and radio now give 
many peasants their first glimpse of China's nascent 
middle class with its luxurious homes, cars, p»»h% 
phones and S200-a-boule French cognac. 

One roaring success is Beijing Television’s “TV 

Shopping” show in which state reporters vesture

in exchange for hefty fees. 

Viewers are still subjected to rightly censored 
news broadcasts and plenty of sermonizing social- 
ist morality tales. But they also enjoy an ever- wider 
choice of programs. 

Robot Wang, a Chinese- Amoican entrepreneur, 
persuaded stale-run China Central Television to air 
the company profiles on its “Economics Half Hour," 
which co mm ands a loyal audience of 80 million and 
can reach as many as 250 millioa consumers. 

Mr. Wang, whose Yellow Line media consultan- 
cy has an exclusive contract to produce the pro- 
grams, sees the arrangement as a potentially profit- 
able foot in China's door.

“Media is very, very important in China. It’s so 
sensitive. Everything is under tight party control 
and you have to find a way in," he said. “Whoever 
has this inner channel is the one who wfll profit" 
The deal is also beneficial for China Central 
Television, which like most other state organs is 
being weaned from decades of state subsidies. 

A Spin-off 
In China 

Bloomberg Busmen News 

HONG KONG - Cheung 
Kong (Holdings) Ltd, flagship of 
the Hong Kong tycoon Li Ka- 
shing , said Friday that it could spin 
off its Qiina operations in the fu- 
ture but bad no plan to do so now. 

stock exchange, Cheung Kong saic 
there was “no immediate plan” to 
float the China business, a possibil- 
ity that Mr. U mentioned to report- 
ers at a reception on Thursday. 

Cheung Kong’s stock rose 75 
Hong Kong cents to dose at 44.75 
dollars (55.79) a share Friday. Tbe 
shares of a subsidiary, Hutchison 
Whampoa Lid, gained 25 cents to 
3625 dollars. 

Market analysis said a separate 
listing of Cheung Kong's China op- 
erations would spread the risks ans- 
ing from the substantial cost of 
some of the group’s plans for China. 

“It will spin off its China opera- 
tions sooner or later to enhance its 
further growth," said Daiman Dai, 
research analyst at Nikko Securi- 
ties. “Some erf its China infrastruc- 
ture projects such as container 
ports and power plants involve 
quite a big sum of money." 

Cheung Kong, winch is one of the 
largest land developers in Hong 
Kong and has equity stakes in matty 
pubttdy traded companies, is in- 
volved in real estate and power plant 
development in China. Hutchison 
Whampoa, its subsidiary, has major 
container port in vestments there. 

Analysts said the port operations 
were highly attractive to investors 
who expeci rapid growth in China's 
container-based hade.

When the Financiers Make Money, It’s Good for Markets 

By Martin Baker 

IDOL UMlLCt ya* uvuiim mj “ — o - d — 

The central difficulty for investors m 
Hong Kong itself — and those who use the 

now, ivuug ilx#u — . . — 

naiket as a means of entry into the Chinese 
sconomy — is the fundamental ambivalence 
jf just about everything relating to China. 
Some say Hong Kong is on the edge of a 
nasty shock in 1997 (which, when percewai 
tjy the market, will result in mayhem). Oth- 
sre argue that the abyss is a creature of the 
collective imaginations of the weak and the 

The only certainty about China is that 
nothing is certain. Take the issue of “B 
shares, the stock designated for foreigner 
investors in Chinese companies. There is a 
profound difference of opinion among inter- 
national investors as to whether this stock 
should trade at a premium or a discount to 
domestically available shares. Fearing ma- 
nipulation, many investors stayed out of the 
B share market 

A ND then there is the issue of 
whether there should be different 
classes of shares at all. Reports 
from China this week, citing Li 
Yining, a leading figure in the Chinese secu- 
rities market, indicate that he has called for 
“A” shares to be made available to interna- 
tional investors. But then, he has already 

cafled for B shares to be available to domes- 
tic investors, with no discernible result. 

The differences between two classes of 
Chinese share may seem to be among the 
more arcane topics of international mvest- 

nore arcane uupua ui “ — ■ 

neat. Maybe, but the decision on issues such 
is this wfll provide an indication as to the 

p*! mu mu j/iv * »«»■ — — — 

real attitude of the Chinese government to- 
ward free movement of capital 
It will, ultimately and most importantly, 
shed light on the question of whether Hong 
Kong investors, who are feasting so sumptu- 
ously right now, are doing so next to a 

shall ow hole or a crevasse. 


H OW much money is there in making 
money? The answer to that ques- 
tion depends on a complex combi- 
nation of factors, many of which 
are in an acute slate of flux. Banking, insurance, 
credit and investment management slocks are 
particularly sensitive to changes in interest 
rates, shifts in monetary and fiscal policy, the 
encouragement (or otherwise) of free trade, and 
ever-changing consumer spending patterns. 

And this week, with a lowering of German rates 

and uneasiness over a possible trade war be- 
tween Japan and the United States, has given 
them plenty of fresh material to digest. 

In a very narrow sense, some analysts view 
the financial sector as a microcosm of the 
world’s markets themselves. The logic runs that 
if those closest to the market are making mon- 
ey, that is a sign that the markets themselves are 
in good health. 

Mutual funds that invest in financial stocks 
offer international investors the chance to gain 

exposure to a wide variety of differing financial 

companies that are basal in many different 
countries. A corollary of this is that these com- 
panies receive income in many different curren- 
cies, which provides dollar investors with an 
automatic currency hedge. 

The returns from mutual funds show that the 
financial sector has indeed participated in the 
bull runs in the world's major markets. Accord- 
tag to the global economics and fund invest- 
ment momiormg firm, Mkropal, the average 
return of financially invested funds (from Jar 
pan, the United Slates and the United King- 
dom) was 26.31 percent over one year, 5826 
percent over three years, and 69.63 percent over 
five years Tor dollar investors. 

The financial sub-index of the Trib Index, 
which is made up of the most heavily capital- 
ized financial services stocks from the leading 
25 world stock markets, outperformed the mu- 
tual funds, however. The Trib Index" financial 

component was up 41.44 percent on the year to 

the beginning of February. 

But however benign the climate may have 
been for financial companies recently, it must 
be remembered that these corporations do not 
do not manag e themselves. Some are inevitably 
better run than others and are quicker to adapt 
to, and profit from cha ngin g economic back- 

Rants in many countries, for example, have 
made a poor job of what is supposed to be 
among their prime functions— lending money. 

“If you show the banking industry worldwide 
an opportunity to lose money by lending, it will 
usually lake it,” said Julian St Lawrence, man- 

'riiaiwWjBttf He«W THww

ager of Framltagton Unit Management LtiL's 
financial fund. 

“1 think we can expect U.K. interest rates to 
firm over the longer term, and that’s naturally a 
bad thing," said Chris Jeffrey, the investment 
ffianag w of Edinburgh Fund Mangers’ Finan- 
cial Fund. "But I don’t drink —at least I hope 

{he h anks can make such a UKSS of their 

lending policy when interest rates are high 
again a s they did the first time round." 

That criticism will certainly have a f ami l i ar 
ring to French and American earn. 

The best-performing fund over one year is 
managed by Edinburgh-based firm. Capital 
House. U.K--based funds have been helped by 
the strength of the UJt. pound against the 
dollar over the past year. The strongest effect 
has been seen in those funds that have invested 
in UJt, companies, thus diminishing their cur- 
rency exposure.

Small Investor. 


T HE story is the same, only the facts 
are different: The small investor 
loses out a ff tin. That is the view of 
one New York analyst, who insist- 
ed on anonymity, on finan cial sector stocks. 
His concern is not that small investors are 
losing out on quoted shares, but that the most 
profitable sectors of the financial industry 
aren't quoted, and so effectively exclude the 
small investor. 

“Take a look at the people who are really 
making money today — the fund managers, 
the derivatives gurus,” the analyst 

“They are taking up to 20 percent of ibdr 
clients’ profits in these raging bull markets. 
And can you buy any of that action? Can you 
even buy into the funds? No.” 

Chris Poll chairman of the econom ics an d 
fund investment research company Mkropal, 
says that he classifies derivatives funds “not 
by investment objective, since they vary so 
much — they are best categorized by 

Mr. Poll contends that the fee structure rs a 
question for the individual investor to per- 
sonally assess. “Investors are being asked to 

pay a charge that’s related to performance.^ 
res an issue that needs tobeexamtafid jn tta : 
ti gh t of that performance.” v 
Hedged and derivative finds (thevt$sm$^ 
overlap somewhat) are expected by tapnstiy^ 
dbserves tomdtquyover the next few years. 
Many of the managers of these fimd»:ta^

Just about everybody is the answer that the

investors, but UAP is just too big far the

Michael Whedhoosc, insurance analyst at 
Nomura Research in London, is also bearish on 
the sectcc. “We won’t see better underwriting 
results corning through until 1995 and yet we 
are not likely to see any more big cuts in interest 
rates; It won’t be a very good year. 1 ' This view 
reflects the analytical consensus that the out-

Analysts dso argue that most of the good 
news in -the European insurance sector has 
already been discounted. Bat the French gov-

ance analyst at the brokerage Credit Suisse 

“Insurance stocks were heavily driven by net 
asset appreciation last year," Mr. Dawson said. 
‘Tins year there wifi be a nmch lower return on 
assets except in Italy where Assiarrazioni Gen- 
erali and Rhimcme Adriatica di Sicurta should 
do wdL So we have lo look at earnings growth 
or anomali es in valuations.” 

A RECENT ruling by the U.K- trade 
ministry gives British mutual in- 
surers an opportunity to raise ad- 
ditional capital through bond is- 
sues — also known as subordinated Joans — 
which are similar in principle to the surplus 
notes issued by American mutual insurance 

“In the past, cash-strapped mutual insurers 
had 10 rely on investment returns to fund 
growth.” said a spokesman for the Associa- 
tion of British Insurers. “This new ruling 
brings mutual insurers into line with U.K. 
building societies, which have been able to 
raise capital through permanent interest 
bearing shares for some time now." 

To date, only one British mutual insurer — 
Scottish Amicable — has taken advantage of 
the new facility. The Scot Am bond, which is 
managed by the merchant banker Kkinwon 

"Likely investors in insurance bonds in- 
dude other insurance companies, pension 
funds and sophisticated private investors 
said Paul GaJpin, director of Standard & 

Poor’s European insurance ratings service. 
“Provided insurance bonds offer a fairly high 
margin ova gilts then the trade-off between 
risk and return would appear to be fairly 

Philip G. Scott, life and pensions manager 
for British insurer, Norwich Union, said that 
while his company will not soon be issuing a 
bond, he believes that they' represent a good 
investment opportunity for corporate and 
private diems. “There is an element of risk as 
the interests of bond issuers would be subor- 
dinated to the interests of policyholders and 
other creditors if the insurance company col- 

lapsed.” he said. “The issuer also has the right 
to defer interest payments at any time if its 
solvency margins reach unnaccep table levels. 
But, generally, the risk is significantly less 
than with corporate bond issues." 

Nevertheless, a handful of mutual insurers 
have expressed some reservations. John Hy- 
lands. marketing general manager at Stan- 
dard Life, says, “while we would not rule out 
the possibility of raising capital through bond 
issues we do not feel that ti would be in the 
interests of the policyholders. The cost of 
raising money in this way could outweigh the 
benefits to our members.” 

As with all new ideas, insurance bonds will 
lake time to catch on. American mutual in- 
surers such as. Prudential Insurance, Metro- 
politan Life. New York life Insurance and 
Scottish Amicable in Britain have led the 
way, and analysts predict that others will 
follow, especially once the European third 
life Insurance directive, which allows mutuals 
to raise money in tins way, is implemented in 
other European countries. 


Mr. Dawson is advising cheats lo buy shares 
in the Dutch companies Aegon. Amev and 
International Nederianden Groep, all of which 
are cheap relative to the sector and should show 
strong earnings this year. Mapfre of Spain is

rititm in certain markets, particularly for mgs- 
scale industrial risks. Mat recently, plunging 
real estate values have damaged those insurers 
with substantial banking interests. 

: But insurers are often prized more for their 
m v tt tm an ts than for thc fluaKty of thdr nndcp- 
-writing- Shares in many European insurers rose 
sharply last year, driven higher by investors 
eager to take advantage of ^ economic recovery 
heralded by interest rate cuts. Many analysts 
now think the gains have been exaggerated: 

National markets will 
converge modi faster than 
most insurers expect, 
giving those companies that 
have established a true 
pan-European presence a 
major advantage. 

Angus Rumanian, insurance analyst at the 
JLoadon stocibrokeragp Barclays de Zoete 
■Wedd, expects problems this year as European 
insurers compete far market share by catting 
premium rates. Only Europe’s strangest com- 
panies, such as Munich Reassurance and Swiss 
'Reinsurance, stand to benefit from this fracas, 
-be said. 

.! “Shareholders wilt be called on to 

‘thiswar of attrition," said Me Rnmaroan/The 
festructuringof bafanoe sheets that we saw fast 
year as insurers revalued their pro pe rt y and 
equity holdings phis the plethora of capital 
•mcreasea that we anticipate in 1994 will only 

’eracerirate the situation. 

First Boston in London, predicted that the 
privatization of UAP and possibly Assurances 
Gfnferales de Ranee; or AGF, and any initial 
public offerings win be the best way for pro- 
spective investors to participate in the sector 
this year. Gtofirale <T Assurances Nationales, or 
GAN, was also bring tooted by industry ana- 
lysts as- a good means of eaCry.tnto the sector. 

“Mrist of the big insurance stocks are unlike- 
ly to outperform; the market indices over the 
next 12 months although they may beworth- 
. while longer term,” raid Mr. Tann. 

- . . Other analysts are marc optimistic about the 
sector as a whole. T5m Dawson, insurance ana- 
lyst at Sheraon Lehman in London, described 
himself as “selectively bullish” about the insur- 
ance industry. - . 

its Latin America operations, he said. 

Pension reform should prove another boon, 
analysts said. European governments are con- 
fronting are mdrling the problems of their 
mounting deficits and aging populations by 
encouraging reliance on private rather than 
state pension. That is good news for companies 
with established Itfe insurance operations, such 
as Prudential, Guardian Royal Exchange, Sun 
Alliance and Royal Insurance of Britain, Vital 
of Norway, Mapfre and Aegon. 

Another consideration is currency exposure. 
Nomura’s Mr. Whedhouse is advising clients to 
buy shares in France’s Axa, Sweden’s Skandia 
and the Swiss companies because they derive 
sfamhle proportions of their earnings in dollars, 
a currency he expects to appreciate tins year. 

Mr. Wnedhouse argued that remarkably few 
European insurers are ready for the single Eu- 
ropean marke t. National markets wiQ converge 
winch faster than most insurers expect, giving 
those companies that have established a true 
pan-European presence a major advantage. 
Among the companies possessing such a pres- 
ence are UAP and the Swiss giants Zurich and 
Winterthur, he said. 

In July tins year, the last of Europe’s insur- 
ance premi u m tariffs wifi be dismantled when 
the ELTs third life and non life insurance direc- 
tives come into force. For many companies, this 
is likely to herald an era of brightened competi- 
tion and narrower profit margins. For those few 
companies able to bestride the continent with 
ease, it may just prove a bonanza. 

Mao versus machine? No contest, according 
to ED.&F. Man Funds Division, which is 
launching a new guaranteed derivatives fund 
aimed at international investors. Mint Plus 
Guaranteed 2003 Ltd. entrusts its trading deci- 
sions entirely to the mephanimri mind. 

The fund should be viewed as a true hedge 
fund, according to Mint's chief investment 
strategist. Peter Matthews. But. he added: “Un- 
like other hedge funds, however, the portfolio is 
constructed entirely by tested computer-based 
rules, hence providing a discipline and consis- 
tency not found in other products which rely on 
die discretionary judgment of the managers. 
The computer-driven model also has the advan- 
tage of being able to track all of the markets 
simultaneously, always aware of and able to 
react to changes in value, trend and risk levels."

medium-term capital appreciation," by invest-

The latest is U.S. investment manag er Scudder,

fund. The Argentinian Fund Inc. 

The fund is currently listed on the New York 
Stock Exchange and has assets of about S90 
million. The manager has filed a registration 
statement with the Securities and Exchange 
Commission for a listing of a further 4 million 
shares, three-quarters of which will be offered 
in North and South America. The rest of the 
shares will be offered to international investors. 

Subject to regulatory clearance, the new 
tranche is expected to be offered for sale in 

a large number of companies with products at a 
relatively advanced, and therefore less risky, 
stage of development," said Jeremy Curnock

financial sophistication, evidenced in South East 
Asia by the emergence of regional bond markets, 
greatly increasing the range of investment

By Rupert Bruce 

A NYONE who bought British finan- 
cial stocks prior to (he pound drop- 
ping out of the European exchange- 
raie mechanism in August 1992 
should be pleased. Taken as a whole, the sector 
— which includes banks, insurers, and invest- 
ment managers — has performed handsomely 
and soundly beaten the stock market average. 

But many of the experts now say financial 
stocks have gone far enough. A recent survey 
found that more investment managers disliked 
finan cial stocks than any other sector in the 
British market. Yet when Smith New Court, the 
broker that commissioned the survey, exam- 
ined anal ysts’ earnings estimates for the sector, 
it found that they were subject to greater up- 
wards adjustments than any other. 

So, while the stocks were widely disliked on 
the one hand, their share prices were under 
considerable upwards pressure on the other. 
This contrast caused Smith New Court’s team 
of market strategy analysts to conclude: “This 
suggests that investors are trying to call the 
peak in the cycle and the danger is they' are far 
too early." 

The sector shot up after the pound's devalua- 
tion largely because falling interest rates were 
judged to be good for profits. In the case of 
banks, they would ease the pressure on hard- 
pressed borrowers. Both small businesses and 
property developers had been going bust by the 
dozen and the banks' profit and loss accounts 
had been devastated by provisions for bad 
debts. Bui once lower interest rates came 
through, the scale of provisioning eased. 

The British recession also prompted banks to 
streamline their branch networks. Barclays, for 
example, is cutting its British staff by 21,000 
people — about a quarter of its employees — 
between 1991 and 1995. The impact of falling 
bad debts and cost savings is dear at Barclays. 

In the half-year to end June 1993, the last 
period reported, it earned before taxes £335 
million (S493 million). That compares with a 
loss of £242 million in the 1992 fiscal year. 

Merchant banks’ pretax profits have re- 
bounded with the stock market Their broker- 
age operations have benefited from strong equi- 
ty and bond markets and high levels of activity. 

Investment management companies — many 
of which are subsidiaries of British merchant 
banks — have also performed well with the 
stock and bond markets. As returns on British 
deposit accounts have fallen with short-term 
interest rates, investors have transferred their 
savings to stock and bond funds. 

The belter these markets have performed, the 
more money has been transferred. Both life 
insurance and composite insurance companies' 
profits are also helped by rising stock and bond 
markets. They invest their premiums in the 
stock and bond markets until such time as they 
may be called upon to pay out. Obviously, if the 
markets rise strongly, they are more likely to 
have a surplus over their obligations. 

life insurance companies have also taken 
flight capital from deposit accounts because 
many of their products are quasi-investment 
products. Tbe Association of British Insurers 
disclosed last week that sales of single premium 
insurance policies rose 23 percent in 1993. 

Falling interest rates also help composite 
insurers because they face fewer losses from 
mortgage indemnity contracts as fewer house- 
holders default. In addition, these factors have 
combined with a switch in the insurance cycle. 
Motor vehicle insurance rates started to harden 
in 1991 and commercial insurance tales in 

Of all these types of stocks, fund managers 
are most bearish on the banks, which, strangely 
enough, are experiencing the largest upgrades 
in brokers’ earnings estimates. It is generally 
accepted that British interest rales are pretty 
dose to the bottom, so there win be no room for 

improvement, but there may still be gains from 
cost savings. 

Anthony Bolton is a senior fund manager at 
Fidelity Investments, tbe British offshoot of the 
U.S. mutual fund giant. Unlike the majority of 
investment management companies. Fidelity 
does not examine stock markets sector by sec- 
tor, but just looks at individual stocks. The only 
two to have Mr Bolton’s eye among all the 
financials ore Barclays and National Westmin- 
ster: “Recovery in the bad-debt situation com- 
bined with a cost cutting program is, we fed, 
quite powerful for the bottom line, and not 
fully discounted by the stock market.” 

Second to tbe commercial banks in terms of 
being out of favor yet constantly having their 
wminp upgraded are the merchant banks. It is 
difficult to find anyone with a good word to say 
about them. 

“In the me reliant books there might be some 
concern that the ratings could slide as well as 
the earnings,” says Phillip Gibbs, an analyst at 
Barclays de Zoete Wedd, a UJL investment 

Concerns about merchant banks center on 
their reliance on proprietary trading, or trading 
their own capital for a significant fraction of 
their profits. Earnings From this area are notori- 
ously erratic. Analysts also say there is not 
much merger and acquisition work around in 
London to occupy the corporate finance de- 

As for investment management companies, 
they are generally thought to be plays on the 
British static market. So, if you think that it win 
continue rising, then you should buy these 

Similarly, one could say that the whole sector 
was a way to bet on the British economy. The 
investment managers surveyed by Smith New 
Court might then be saying that the prices of 
financial stocks fully anticipate the recovery in 
the British economy. But if you thought they 
had underestimated it. and the size of the earn- 
ings upgrades suggest they may have done, then 
you should buy financial stocks.

The Risks of aNew Market 

By Kevin Murphy 

A T first glance the inexo- 
rable rise of Indian 
flocks looks tike an un- 
qualified bonus for the 
Western managem ent com pa nies 
leading the inward rush of invest- 
ment capital A rash of new Indian 
and subcontinent equity funds has 
appeared in step with changing 
perceptions about an economy cm 
an upswing. The newcomers join a 
Small group of established funds 
who suddenly find themselves 
awash in cask • 

But there are two sides to the 
story. Along with the developing 
boom comes the technical problem 
of investing. As the Indian mark** 
opens itself up to TTiternatinna l in- 
vestment, problems are hwng expe- 
rienced in processing domestic 
trades. And the Indian government 
acted last week to slow the pace of 
new share and band issues in the 
international marketplace, citing 
concerns over the frenzied levels of 
activity, and India’s overall indebt- 

The avalanche began at the turn 
of the year. Net foreign investment 
wasSllnffionin 1993,withinosiof 
that coming is November and De- 
cember; the In dian market index 
has risen anound'SO percent in the 
past three months. - 

“India had been the quuit story 
of Asia, on til recently,” said Ian 
McEvatt, managing director of In- 
dosnez Asset Management Asia. 
Ltd. in Hong Kong. “Everyone gets 
excited about China, but' India’s 
potential is not Ear behind and it is 
increasingly less regulated and re- 
stricted when the two are com- 

Indosuez manages the Himala- 
yan Fond, London and Amster- 
dam-listed and one of tbc first for- 
eign funds to invest primarily in 
India when first launched in June 
1990. After some lean early days 
when it traded at adeep'discount to 
its net asset value and experienced 
steady depredation in the rupee, 
the dosed-end Hhnalayan Fund 
has prospered. 

' Strong gains by Indian stocks in 
1993 saw the Himalayan Funds’ 
$100 milBoa start-up grow into 
into a net asset value of $170 roO- 
fion. This increase came; despite an 
85 percent slide feu the rupee 

' against the U.S. doflar during the 
poiod, a solid enough jxrionnaoce 
combined with wkiening' foreign 
scrutiny of India to encourage 
dosuez to exrand the fund by an- 
otberSZOOimflion through a place- 
ment of new shares in January. 

*1994 will be a year of great 
opportunities in in India,” said Mr. 
McEvatt. “But we don’t think peo- 
ple should be going mto this with 
their hands over thar eyes, l would 
not be sanguine about trying to go 
mto a country where experience 
counts so much.” • 

Like Jar dine Fleming Unit 
Trusts whose Hong Kong-based 
India. Trust -stopped taring new 
funds in January at $420 miflwy 1 
for f ear that it could not invest it a& 
efficiently, and a handful of other 
India veterans, Indosuez can argue 
strongly for entrusting money to 
exgenmced lands.. 

athan Boyer, who manag e Jardine 
Fleming's India funds, which are 
set to grow totfireem number with 
the addition of a New York-listed 
dosed end fund, and a United 
Kingdom investment trust. 

“its true there is a great deal 
more money looking at India right 
now,” said Mr. Boyer. “But against 
a strong macroeconomic backdrop 
and continuing reforms, Indian in- 
vestments should perform well on 
funds men talsfor several years." 

A wave of new funds.wiBmg' to 
shrug off the current trarhng envi- 
ronment could take- those foreign 
investment figures hiaber as strare- 
gists re-evaluate their current 
weightings for India wfafch, in gen- 
eral, are far smaller than the econo- 
my’s pptentiaL 

Direct investment by Indian

stitutional investors, which hit $1 
billion in 1993, and another SO 
baffion raised by blue chip Indian 
enmpimiKg tlntai^h issues. ofeqpj- 
ty-finked, convertible bonds and 
Global Depositary Receipts inch-, 
cate appetites are growingfor Indi- 
an exposure. 

"Fund managers; everywhere are 

Indian convertibles reflectiTit, " 
said Steven Peter sohn, of Jeffries 
Pacific Ltd. in Hong Kong, which 
trades e^ty-linked derivatives. 
“Convertibles are the cleanest, fast- 
est ami easiest way to participate in 
a potentially explosive market” 

Investors watted with delight 
as Indian ooavcztibks, . such as 

those issued in December by the 
conent maker Gmant Ambqja Ce- 
ment^ rose sharply in vahe as their 
prenumn to the underlying share 
price actually expanded. 

Giqarat Ambaja’s $75. million 
bond was issued at par on a 7 A 
percent premium to the nnderiying 
price at the time. By early January 
the bond had reached 140 While the 
premium on die bond relative to 
the underlying shares had in- 
creased to 21 percent. 

Generally such a scenario isn’t 
sustained for long unless demand 
greatly exceeds supply. Investors 
would normally switch their high 
priced bonds into the underlying 
equity instead. But it hadn't bap- 

managers are not fully com- 
fortable with direct investment in 
Indian equities. 

How long those high premiums 
remain intact depends on whether 
demand for quality Indian paper 
continues to outstrip supply. A 
number of new, big issues were 
expected to be launched in 1994, 
and were seen as a potentially stiff 
test for a relatively young market 
Now the question is how long the 
Indian government’s informal poli- 

Inienuttooil Herald Tribune 

cy of discouraging further issues 
win prevail. 

Foreign investors were only al- 
lowed into India’s protected stock 
markets in September 1992 and 
overseas stockbraking firms were 
only recently permitted to conduct 
correspondent bickering for over- 
seas clients. 

Indiafor maty investors is a leap 
into a myslenous maikeL Not 
knowing many of the locally listed 
companies wdl enough to buy their 
equity, or unimpressed with a com- 
plicated clearing system and a 30 
percent capital-gains tax on short- 
term trading profits, many foreign- 
ers have instead chased the paper 
that has been brought to them by 
people they already know. 

But, with an avalanche of money 
seeking high returns pouring out of 
Europe and North America, and 
other stock markets in southeast 
Asia twice as expensive as they 
were a year ago, attention is focus- 
ing on India. 

And, as with most emerging mar- 
kets, the best retains mil found 
those prepared to dive into a large 
pool (6,000 companies Hsted on the 
country’s exchanges) where few 
have swum before. 

A Bubble in German Bank Stocks? 

By Abb Brockfehurst 

G ERMANY’S three main banks 
have sailed through the country's 
severest post-war recession with 
record profits, but despile out- 
performing just about every other national 
industry in terms of profit growth, only one 
of the big three banks managed to outper- 
form the German stock market in 1993. 
Shares of Commerzbank posted a 59 percent 
gain last year compared to a 42 percent rise in 
Frankfurt's DAX index while Deutsche Bank 
rose 37 percent and Dresdner Bank climbed 
31 percent. 

Among European banking industry ana* 
Sts, there is no consensus at all on where the 
prices are headed from here. Some 
analysis recommend the German banking 
sector as a whole while others expea it to 
underperform. Some analysis see Dresdner 
bank alone as a “buy,” while others favor just 
about every other big bank. Opinion is also 
sharply divided on Commerzbank. And « hile 
Deutsche Bank provokes less controversy 
then toe other members of (he big three, there 

is no unanimity on its faze either. 

Bankhaus Julius Baer in Frankfurt current- 
ly has “buys” on Deutsche, Comment. Bank- 
geseflschaft Berlin and DePfa Bank, a situa- 
tion banking analyst Manfred Piomka 
describes as “exceptional." Normally, it only 
recommends one German bank at a time for 
purchase, but because it is “very optimistic in 
the middle to tong term" about the seaor, it is 
in the unusual position of recommending 

Many investors in German stocks have 
moved mto chemicals, steel and now autos, 

hoping to benefit from an imminent turn- 
around after toe years of shrinking profits 
and, in some ca res , losses. Mr. Picnika noted 
that for hanlc^ whose profits have continued 
to grow throughout toe recession, the turn- 
around will make itself felt in reduced loan 
loss provisions that should boost e arn i ngs 
even higher. 

The banks, which will report their 1993 
results in March, have released 10-month 
results in which toe respective provisions 
against loans losses for Deutsche. Dresdner 
and Commerz were, respectively. 2.46 billion 
DM IS 1.43 billion), 1.25 billion DM and 1.37 
billion DM. A Salomon Brothers' report on 
German banks estimated Deutsche Bank's 
provisions rose to 3 billion DM for all of 1993 
and then will drop off to 2.8 biBkm DM in 
1994 and 2.3 billion DM in 1995. Salomon 
sees both Dresdner and Commerz following a 
similar pattern. 

“As toe German economy stabilizes in 
1994. we expect toe pace of domestic credit 
deterioration to be slower than in 1993," a 
European banking analyst, John Leonard, 
wrote in toe report “This already appears to 
be happening in Eastern Germany, where all 
three h anks are now profitable after provi- 
sions and taxes. 

Salomon has a “buy" recommendation on 
Dresdner and “holds” on Deutsche and 
Commeiz. Dresdner Bank “remains our top 
choice based on its balance between hanking 
and nonbanking investments and the rela- 
tively modest share valuation," toe report 
says. “Our stance on toe other two banks is 
alio positive; but we lack sufficient near-term 
conviction that toe shares will outperform the 
market to support a ’buy’ rating." 

In 1993. German banks were able to more 

than make up Tor the hefty amounts allocated 
to loan loss provisions with toe comnnssons 
and tr adin g profits derived from surging se- 
curities markets, “This is one of the advan- 
tages of Germany’s universal banka," Mr. 
Piontka said 

But the universal banks also have [heir 

disadvantages, as has recently been illustrat- 
ed by toe problems of the mining and metals 
gjant Meiallgesellschaft AG. As wdl as com- 
bining toe functions of commercial banks, 
merchant banks and brokerage houses, Ger- 
man hanks are major shareholders in many of 
toe country’s biggest and best-known compa- 
nies. creating a concentration of financial 

Both Deutsche and Dresdner not only bold 
major slakes in MetaUgeseDsdiaft, but they 
are also among its most important creditors 
and have seats of its supervisoty board. When 
Metallgesellscbaft announced that its losses 
for the fiscal year ended SepL 30, could total 
3 3 billion DM, holders of rank shares were 
predictably upset. While the company has 
now agreed to a restructuring program ap- 
proved by both its German and foreign bank- 
ers, more bad news could have a negative 
impact on toe banks' share prices. 

Michael Wheelbouse, financial analyst at 
Nomura Research Institute, believes that an- 
alysts basing their predictions for recovery 
and improved loan loss provisions on toe 
pattern established in toe 1980s recession 
may be too optimistic. 

“For me toe decisive tiring is that toe 
recession m Germany is more serious tins 
time around. 1 think tor asset quali ty prob- 
lem is more serious," he said. ‘Tm sitting on 
toe negative side of toe fence." 

The Risk-Free Option: Savings Accounts 

A FTER toe Spanish central hank 
stepped in Late last year to take con- 
trol of Banco Espafiol de Credito, or 
Ernesto, edgy depositors pulled out 
some 300 billion pesetas (S2.12 billion) in de- 
posits in the next 10 days. While it is not hard to 
understand toe depositors’ worry, it is more 
difficult to justify it, banking analysts say. 

Despite toe horror stories, stashing one’s 
savings in the local bank remains an almost 
risk-free option. The main drawback is, as it 
always has been, the low rate of return com- 
pared to other investments. 

David Andrews, director of toe London- 
based bank-rating agency, IBCA Ltd., said that 
apart from the ^jectacular case of the Bank of 
Credit & Commerce International, with its $20 
billion of deposits fraudulently collected from 1 
milli on people in 72 countries, there have been 
“very few bank failures in which anyone's lost 

“In the end, depositors have usually been 
paid off," be said, noting that all over toe world, 
governments, central banks or other commer- 
cial banks almost invariably step in to bail 
depositors out and calm fears of a bank run. 

In the case of Banesto, Mr. Andrews said: 
“We’re idling our subscribers not to be worried 

in that we still give it an A-minus long term. I 
don’t think anyone who's in there should be 
worried. The Bank of Spain has demonstrated 
that it’s eager to rescue n and keep it going." 

In 1990 and 1991, after bearing repeatedly 
about toe big U.S. banks' ill-advised lending to 
shaky Third World countries and even shakier 
First World entrepreneurs, as well as toe mess 
at the country’s small savings and loans institu- 
tions, many Americans joined a “flight to quali- 

David G Gates, ^airman of the Cates Bank 
Rating Service in Washington, said this was not 
necessarily a smart tiring to do. “A flight to 
quality is not always goodfor the customer ," be 
said. “Those are the banks that pay the least 

“Instead of toe safest bonks, what the con- 
sumer wants to do is avoid the rockiest" he 
said. “That’s better advice." 

But according to Robert Heady, publisher of 
the Florida-based Bank Rate Monitor, times 
have changed to the point where it is now 
possible for depositors to have their cake and 
eat it too. He says the theory about toe shakiest 
banks paying toe highest yields “was correct 
four or five years ago but it has now gone out 
the window.” 

Bank Rale Monitor’s list of the banks paying 

toe 100 highest yields in toe U.S. show that 65 
are rated three-star by the bank-rating organi- 
zation Veribanc, 18 are two-star, three are one- 
star and 20 have no stars. Thai compares to 
three years ago when only 32 were three-star, II 
two-siar, 14 one-star ana 44 no-star. 

IBCA awards its highest trrple-A credit rat- 
ing based either on a bank's own merits or 
because it is guaranteed by the state. Including 
J-P. Morgan, there are currently only six banks 
worldwide who have earned toe rating indepen- 
dently. They are Germany’s Deutsche Bank, 
tire Netherlands’ Rabobank Group, Swiss Bank 
Corp., Union Bank of Switzerland and Crfedit 

While Mr. Andrews said that companies and 
institutions might prefer to stick to lriple-A 
rated banks to keep themselves safe and liquid, 
he does not recommend a similar strategy for 
private individuals dealing in smaller amounts. 
“They would be silly not to to try to get more 
return." he said. 

He also suggests bank customers “stay at 
borne. I wouldn't advise any individual to start 
placing money with foreign banks at alL 
There's not just toe bank collapse risk, bnt toe 
exchange collapse risk as wefl."

Christopher Kwiecinski,

Banque Indosuez, 

Global Private Banking 

One of the key dements of the 
world investment landscape out- 
lined at the beginning of 1994 is 
falling into place. Ignoring some 
pandits’ advice to wait until “the 
whites of the infla tion" could be 
seen before tightening, tbe Federal 
Reserve has begun to take the 
punch bowl away! 

The first interest rate hike in 
needy five years is an impor tant 
qrdical development, for it marks 
the begmnzng of a long series of 
moves familiar to Fed-watchers. 
The market's complacency about 
the U.S. central bank's willingness 
to continue to supply liquidity 
should be ending, although the im- 
pact of die Fed’s action oo investor 
sentiment wiD be fdt in coining 
weeks. Private investors should be 
asking themselves whether this 
tnnting pant in the U.&. interest 
rate cydeshoold lead to a strategic 
rebalancing of their portfofios. 

Hist, last week’s derision by the 
Federal Reserve should have reas- 
sured UK doBar-based investors 
to stay with their long dollar posi- 
tions mnfirmw| ihf n w l tO 
hedge their exposure into Europe- 
an fmanriftl assets. Nonetheless, 
the sbort-tam upside potential of 
the -American currency win be 
capped by tbe threat of the Bundes- 
bank intervention as wefl as the 
length of its apparent pause in 
monetary easing. The German cea- 
traTbank. largely pr eocc upi ed with 
domestic concerns, missed an op- 
portunity to reduce interest rates 
earlier in January. This brings the 
question whether the expected 
monetary earing in continental Eu- 
rope will be sumrient to pull bond 
yields down to cyclical W this 
year. Delays «™lar to the current 
one wfll trigger bond market cor- 
rections andalso trading opportu- 
nities where the bears are nkdy to 
find headwinds, albeit less strong 
than last year. 

I While the magnitude of the tight- 
ening by the Federal Reserve was 

hardly shocking, its psychological 
effect should not be underestimat- 


er that tbe American stock market’s 
driving face has shifted from in- 
terest rates to earrings. In this new 
phase cyclical stocks are likely to 
fare better but positive earnings 

Emprises will provide opportunities 
to sell into rallies. 

As a little-pnblidzed example, 
bonds outperformed equities in the 
United States last year and while a 
reversal is expected in 1994, an 
overall more neutral stock market 
position is warranted. To be sure, 
rising money market yields are still 
far below lords threatening equity 
valuations, but if tbe monetary 
tightening does not produce a flat- 
tened yield curve, the risk of a cor- 
rection among share prices wiB 
loan larger. Further, to the extent 
that higher interest rales are likely 
to re£teci a stronger economy and 
rising credit demands, higher-yield 
fixed mcome securities, both sover- 
eign. and corporate, may still offer 
attractive prospects. 

The appearance of amber lights 
on Wall Street carries implications 
for other international equity allo- 
cations. In general, tbe following 
countries have shown historically 
low correlations with the U.S. mar- 
ket returns: Japan, Australia, Ger- 
many, Italy, Spain and, among the 
emergi ng markets. South Korea 
and Merica- The usual caveat 
about past performance applies, of 
course, but it should nonetheless 
beat the dartboard. However, die 
recent weeks helped underscore the 
sensitivity of the Southeast Asian 
markets in the U.S. interest rate 

In contrast to many European 
equity markets over discounting 
profit recovexy in 1994 and the U.S. 
market’s high valuations, Ji 
may appear attractive. The 
kri's current trading range, al- 
though approaching the upper end, 
is stin nearly SO percent below its 
bubble-fueled late- 1989 levels. To- 
kyo dis app ointed many fund man- 
agers in the latter part of last year 
amidst deepening domestic politi- 
cal uncertainty and dashed hopes 
of economic recovery. The worst of 
the deflationary squeeze should be 
over by now, the yen has tuned, 
the government has just announced 
an un precede nted fiscal stimulus 
package and optimism about re- 
covery in the second half of 1994 
has revived. It is not surprising that 
investors are beginning to view Ja- 
pan more favorably, particularly 
after the recent records on the 
smaller markets. Fi- 
j, US. doQar-based portfolios 
should raise moderaldy their cash 
levels, mainly for financing trading

.Anna Tong, director. 
Aetna Investment 
(Hong Kong) Ltd. 

International investors have 
started 1994 with a question to one 
they had at (he beginning of 1993: 
How much should (bey allocate to 
the Japanese stock market? After 
four years of significant under-per- 
formance, investors have begun to 
swing their vote toward Japan. Sig- 
nificant buying by American and 
European investors has over- 
whelmed selling by domestic cor- 
porations of their fiscal year 
at the end of March. As a result 
during the month of January the 
Japanese stock market (represent- 
ed by the TOPIX Index) gained 
13.2 percent and was 30.6 percent 
above its recent low set Nov. 29. 

Investing in the Japanese market 
two months ago required a certain 
leap of faith. At that lime, the mar- 

ket was extremely vary of Prune 
Minister Morihiro Hosokawa’s 
shaky coalition government, which 
was deeply engrossed in pohtical 
reform debates and seemed to be 
ignoring the plunge in the market 
and the economy. In the ■‘old*’ 

days, the then-powerful ruling Lib- 
eral Democratic Party supported 
tbe market with repeated fiscal 
stimulus packages and its Price 
Keeping Operation. Tbe new gov- 
ernment's inability to enact mean- 
ingful reforms and its decision to 
be conspicuously absent from the 
market by not establishing a sec- 
ond PKO helped to shatter investor 
confidence. A s a result, the market 
fell IS.? percent in November and 
rebounded only slightly in Decem- 

In January, however, a few 
forces combined to improve inves- 
tor sentiment substantially. In tbe 
first half of the month, toe stock 
market was propelled higher by sig- 
nificant foreign baying of export- 
rdated “blue chips," as investors 
became optimistic on toe back of 
the weakening yen. In toe second 
half of toe month toe market ini- 
tially came under pressure amid 
continuing concerns about toe gov- 
ernment’s ability to engender a 
meaning ful recovery, but it rallied 
by 7 percent on the* last day of tbe 
momn after coalition reached a 
compromise that paved the way for 
an income tax cut and other eco- 
nomic stimuli. 

There is no question that toe 
economy remained in toe doldrums 
at year-end. with the unemploy- 
ment rate rising to 2.9 percent, in- 
dustrial production falling 45 per- 
cent and department store rales 

falling 6.6 percent in 1993 from a 
year earlier. 

However, we believe that these 

and tbe unspent portion of previ- 
ous packages {totaling 25 trillion 
yen), tbe low and falling interest 
gloomy statistics are already fac- rate environment, normal cyclical 
lorcd m Japanese prices and thus replacement demand, and extreme- 

rr — : — =_ - — ty low inflation should provide an 

environment in which the Japanese 
stock market can continue to oul- 

continue to maintain a positive 
outlook for toe Japanese market 
this year. Going forward, the new 
15 trillion yen stimulus package

Germany stunned the Russians 
by taking a 2-0 lead on pwer-play 
goals by veteran Bemd Tnmtschka 
in the first 10 minutes. 

Trimtschka had had no goals 
and just one assist in IS games in 
three previous Olympics, But be

a delayed penalty was being sig-

Leo Stefan tapped in a third Ger-

goalie Sergei Abramov for 3-0 in 
the 25th minute. 

German goalie Klaus Merit, who 
made 32 saves in the game against 
14 for Abramov, shot out the Rus- 
sians on til the 36th minute. 

Pavd Torgaev then scored at

Olmr Mfi&httpf Agract France- Prou: 

Handrick Joerg of Germany took a spiD as two Russian defenders dosed in on Mm Friday daring in Germany’s ice hockey upset 

as the Russians couldn't gel around 
Merk, and Germany grabbed the 
momentum bade when Wolfgang 
Rummer stole the puck in cento* 
ice and fired a 50-footer between 
Sand Abramov’s pads. 

The jubilant Germans poured 
over the boards to congratulate 
Merk as the final horn sounded. 
The Russians lined Dp quietly, 
awaiting the traditional nann-thate 
with their opponents. 

The Russians, inexperienced 
heirs to (he Moscow-based dynasty 
that won seven Olympic titles, had 
been weakened by an exodus of 
players to North America. 

“The begmnmg of the end to the 
dynasty came a long time ago,” 
Russian assistant coach Igor Drmi- 
triev said, referring to the High! of 
Star players to the National Hockey 
League across the Atlantic. 

“Maybe it is time to start talking 
about ibe end,” he said. 

With the trickle of Russians 
rushing to the NHL having turned 
to a flood, die old hockey dynasty 
is struggling with the leftovers. 

The Soviet Union won seven of 
nine gold medals. The Unified 
Team that succeeded it won in 
1992. Only the United States brake 
that iron grip, in 1960 and 1980. 

But now, its defensemen are me- 
diocre, the go&ltoDdiQg is suspect, 
and the future is the dimmest since 

the Soviet Union's first Olympics 
38 years ago. 

Russia locked up a playoff spot 
for these Games, but Dixmtriev 
knows the ooce-powetful machine 
is mi«ing important parts. 

“We’ve disappointed our fans at 
home and everybody else,” he said. 
“We made the same defensive mis- 
takes as against Finland. The de- 
fense is the weakest point of the 

But the current team has no for- 
mer Olympians. Of the 22 Unified 
Team players, 19 went to the NHL. 

And Russia has had just two years 
to restock. 

Germany’s best previous perfor- 
mance in an Olympic tournament 
was a bronze roerfai in Innsbruck in 

*T expected we could do much 
better than ever before." German 
coach Ludek Bukac said. Germa- 
ny’s only previous hockey medals 
were bronzes in 1932 and 1976. 

Russia endured a 5-0 whitewash 
by Finland earlier in the tourna- 
ment, but victories over Norway 
and Austria, the two weakest teams 

in the pool, were enough 10 give 
them a place in the final eight. 

“We are losing our self-confi- 
dence after these losses. The most 
important thing now is to rebuild 
the spirit of the team.” Dimitri ev

NHL Considers Break for Games 

The Aaaaated Pros 

tional Hockey League is moving 
closer to shutting down for part 
of the 1998 Winter Games so its 
stars can play on thdr national 
teams, ConmnsricoerGaiy Bett- 
Tnim said. 

Bettman has met twice here 
with the International Olympic 
Committee president, Juan Anto- 
nio Samaranch, and Gunter Sa- 
betzki, head of the International 
Ice Hockey Federation. 

“Our goal is to have a frame- 
work in place by summer,” Betl- 
man said Thursday. “If we can't 
get oni of the gate on tins one, it 
may not get done." 

The first step was taken last 
week when the NHL and HHF 
agreed to work on a framework 
for the league to take a break 
during a portion of the 16-day 
1998 Games in Nagano, Japan. 

The move would affect many 
of the teams in the Olympics and 

of play. Unlike the basket! 

competition at the 1992 Games 
in Barcelona, in which the UiL 
“Dream Team” was the main 
beneficiary of National Basket- 
ball Association talent, the 
Americans, Canadians, Czechs, 
Finns. Russians and Swedes all 
would benefit from the infusion 
of NHL players. 

One of ibe main stumbling 
blocks is theNHL’s regular sea- 
son. The league doesn't want to 
suspend play for the Olympics 
because dub owners would balk 
at the lost revenue. 

first period to put the Czechs ahead 

The blitz appeared to kill off the 
unrated Norwegians, who have 
never been among the top eight in 
the Olympics but who had hoped 
that the home advantage would 
help them beat the odds. 

In Gjoevik, Marko Palo made it 
1-0 after only 1:31 and Finland 
swept to its fourth consecutive win. 
Hannu Vtrta added a second in the 
29th with a slapshot from a face-off 

Canadian-born Kenneth Strong 
pulled one back for Austria three 
minutes later, but Ville Pelt one n 
tapped in a rebound in the 38th 
mnuie to reclaim a two-goal ad- 
vantage for Finland before a one- 
sided third period. 

Little more than honor was at 
stake, as Finland had already se- 
cured a place in the quarterfinals 
and Austria, with no points, had no 
chance to qualify. 

The United States, which tied 
Onada 3-3 Thursday for its thud 
consecutive draw in the Olympics, 
could still get into the medal round 
with a tie in its next two games, or 
almost certainly would make it 
with a win and a tie. 

Second-seeded Sweden awaits

lowed by Italy on Monday. 

Canadian Gels North America’s First Biathlon Gold 

The Associated Pros 

LILLEHAMMER — Myriam Bedard of 
Canada became the first ever North Ameri- 
can to win an Olympic biathlon gold medal 
on Friday as she captured the women’s open- 
ing 15-kuometer event, 46.7 seconds ahead 
of fiance’s Anne Briand. 

Bedard, a bronze medalist in the event two 
years ago when women’s biathlon was intro- 
duced to the Winter Olympic program in 
Albertville, docked 52 minutes, 6.6 seconds. 
She had missed twice at the shooting range. 

Uschi Did of Germany won the bronze. 

“It was tougher today than in Albertville 
because of the odd weather,” Bedard said. “1 
was feeling bettor physically in Albertville 
after the race. Mentally I don’t know” 

“I still haven't realized what happened,” 
she added “to Albertville 3 also didn't res- 
ize what happened. Maybe IT1 realize it in a 
couple of weeks.” 

it was Canada’s second gold in these 
Games. Freestyle skim Jean-Luc Brassard 
won the men’s moguls Wednesday. 

Bedard, a 24-year-old French-Canadian 
from Lorettevihe, Quebec, has steadily im- 
proved after making ibe podium in 1992. She 
finished runner-up in the World Cup the 
past two seasons after a 28lh overall in 1991. 

Briand, a member of the French trio that 
won the team gold medal in the Last Olym- 
pics, was timed in 52:53 J after missing three 
targets. She was among the last starters, 
setting out just ahead of Bedard, in a field of 

“It's the first time I had a starting number 
Bke (hat,” Bedard said. “I was the last of the 
best, so it was a very good starting number.” 

Bedard had hex soxmd miss cm the last 
shooting range, wrth about one kilometer 

“It was hard 10 know if Briand was riding 
fast” Bedard said. “But with about one 
kilometer left I knew I had 40 seconds so I 
was pretty sure that I could bold on to lhaL" 

Dul, who started 14th, picked up some 
lost pride for the German team, was third in 
53:15.3. She had three misses. 

Briand started poorly, missing twice at the 
first two slops at the shooting range, and 
thought the medal was gone. 

“This individual medal was such a chal- 
lenge that I now fed drunk with joy,” she 
said. “I wasn’t feeling very well in the morn- 
ing. I had pains all over. Then 1 started 
badly. I missed at both of the first two 
ranges, but I managed to regain my confi- 

The biathlon combines the endurance of a 
cross-country race with marksmanship from 
the shooting range. None of (he 69 entries 
managed to shoot dean on a day with little 
wind. But the cold weather with tempera- 
tures of minus 14 degrees centigrade (7 de- 
gress Fahrenheit) at the start of the race 
affected the shooting, 

In the 15-kilometer biathlon, racers go 
through the shooting range four times, 
shooting twice prone and twice from the 
standing position at five targets in each series 
using 22rcaliber rifles. 

Each miss adds a one-minute penalty to 
the overall time. 

The Germans have struggled on the World 
Cup circuit this year, failing to win a single 

Antic Harvey, the defending champion 
from Germany, who won in 1992 undo- her 
maiden name, Misersky, finished only ninth, 
2:05.8 behind after three misses: 

Another German, the world champion Pe- 
tra Schaaf, had a poor day at the shooting 
range, missing five targets to finish 15th, 
almost three minutes behind the winner, al- 
though she skied the course 13 seconds 

Nathalie Santer of Italy, who has a com- 
manding overall lead in the World Cup 
standings, was another disappointment. Site 
finished 25th, 4:00.8 behind, after right 

Only three women shot better than the 
winner — Delphyne Heymann. a member of 
France’s world championship silver medal 
relay team, the American Joan Guetschow 
and the Romanian Adina Sotropa. They all 
hit 19 of 20 largeis.

ULLEHAMMER — Fred Borre Lund- 
bere of Norway won the ski-jumping portion 
of the Olympic Nordic combined event Fri- 
day and will take a 23-second lead into the 
cross-country ski race that will decide the 
gold medal on Saturday. 

Lundbcrg's closest competitors said they 
did not think they could catch him in the 15- 
kilometer race. 

Kenji Ogiwara of Japan, the world cham- 
pion, who usually depends on good jumps to 

carry him to victory, will start the race 1 
minute, 46 seconds behind Lundberg. 

Cheered on by more than 20,000 specta- 
tors mid hundreds of Norwegian flags wav- 
ing, Lundberg went 923 and 92 meters 
(301 Vi feet and 300 feet) in his two jumps for 
a total score, including style points, of 247.0. 

Agp Markvardt of Estonia jumped 92_5 and 
91 meters for 243.5 points, putting him 23 
seconds b ehind Lundgren at Saturday’s start. 

**1 don’t think ru be able to beat Lund- 
gren,'’ Markvardt said 

Another Norwegian. Bjarte Engen Vik, 
had 2403 points for jumps of 91.5 and 92 
meters, putting him 43 seconds behind the 
leader at the start of the cross-country. 

“Fred will take the gold” be predicted 
Lundgren agreed 

“Normally. I should win tbe cross-coun- 
try,” he said “1 was terribly nervous at the 
(op, bui 1 managed to concentrate.” 

Japan's Takanori Kona who currently 
stands second in the World Cup, jumped 91 

and 923 meters for 2393 points and mil 
start 50 seconds b ehind 
Ogiwara. who generally had been exceed 
mg 90 meters in practice jumps, went . 89 and 
88 meters for 231 points. 

Japan’s Junichi Kogawa had the day’s best 

tbe victory Fve wanted,” said Rad, . 
who reamed the podium for the 
first time in -five Olympic tries. 
“Now Fve done it, this mil be my 
last Olympics." 

Tbe Gomans were , nonplussed 
afterward. Partners far a dozen

The. auditorium in the Main Press Center was like a 
: large school bos on a field trip just far enough away to 
make everyone punchy. There first had been a raws 
coaferaice riven by two Armenian bobskdders from New 
- ffngfaitidj which bad been well attended fry all of the 
jOTnahstswho wanted a seatfor the Tonya Harding press 
conference. Her30-nrinntc performance, which was less 
revealing than her videos ... fortunately ... included 
several attempts to discover her feeHngs about what had 
become of Nancy and the Oiympto movement. 

“1 am very upset and ashamed and I am embarrassed,” 
Tonya said, but tmfartnnatdy she was responding to the 
topless videos of her broadcast and published throughout 
the world. “One thing I have to say is if everyone could pur

To believe everything Tonya 
said was to believe, basically, that 
she has no brain. 

The question went unanswered by her audience, be- 
cause reporters do not generally have coaches. 

To believe everything Tonya mid was to believe, basi- 
cally, that she has no brain. She said she does not sense 
tension between her and Nancy. She confirmed they had 
had a “brief encounter" here, which she described as “very 
positive” and “kind of a private thing" She also said, “The 
mafia attention has been great," which would be like 
Kennedy saying that he respected Oswald's opinion. “It’s 
been kind of fun, interesting. I know the media has to do 
their job, I understand that, and I respect them." 

The media responded by adring bow die could profit 
from a horrible situation by signin g an exclusive interview 
agreement with an American *V mow. (The truth is that 
everyone is profiting. J 

“Well, I'm not profiting off of a horrible situation," she 
said. “I have not received any of the money, and when F do

She answered the questions like she was running for the 
Miss America title. (In a spons sense, she is.) “I fed every 
competitor at the Olympic Games is wonderful and 1 see 
myself as an equal icthem." she said, but it was difficult to 
tell whether she could hear the guffaws belched from the 

Tonya said her right ankle, sore for months, would not 
affect h« performances. She said she seems to skate better 
under pressure. (We’D find out.) Her coach revealed that 
Tonya had been asked to arrive after the Opening Cere* 
monies by (be USOC, which didn’t want her shadow cast 
ova- the other athletes. Tonya said she only wished she 
could share some of her sunshine with them. She said she 
wasn’t distracted and neither was she worried about the 

judges burying ha when (be women’s figure skating be- 
gins Wednesday, and then she got up and left and was 
replaced on the stage by Alberto Tomba. 

He blubbered: “Tonya, Totnba. Toe-mba.” 

In 1992, be was reminded, the hype had all been Totnba, 
Tomba. This year it is Tonya, Tonya. 

To the reporters he said, “ “Tonya - is better — for you, 
yes. Not fen this girl, no." 

Tomba will uy next week to become the first Alpine 
skier to win gold medals in three consecutive Olympics. 
More importantly, he was asked Friday to name the best 
nightclubs in Lillehammer, whether he was still interested 
romanncaBy in Katarina Witt. 

In other news from the auditorium, the Armenian 
delegation, making its first appearance in the Winter 
Olympics, said it had been unable to attract sponsors, 
given the more important needs of the Armenian popula- 
tion. Because of the 1988 earthquake and the ongoing 
conflict with .Azerbaijan, the country is lacking in electric- 
ity, heat, fuel and food. The chef de mission explained how 
his Olympic skier can only get in four practice runs every 
few days because he has to walk back up the hiS after each 
run, but by then the auditorium was filling up with the 
antiripatoiy buzz of Tonya’s arrival, and no one seemed to 
be paying much attention to the Armenians.

Russians Lead 
In Ice Dancing 

Compiled by Qm Staff From Dtspaicha 

HAMAR — Britain's 1984 
Olympic champions, Jayne 
TorviD and Chrikopher Dean, 
were relegated to third place as 
Russia’s ice dancing power pre- 
vailed on Friday. 

Maya Usova and Alexander 
Zhnfin, the world champions, 
were deadlocked after splitting 
victories b the first two com- 
pulsory dances with Oksana 
Gritschuk and Yevgeni Platov, 
who have emerged as the big 
threat to the Britons. They each 
have 0.6 points. 

Torvill and Dean, the perfec- 
tionists of ice dancing a decade 
ago, were judged to have lost 
some of their excellence and 
woe third b both dances, the 
Starlight waltz and the Blues.

Kerrigan ’s Answer to Harding? Smile

That did not necessarily mean Korigan was

aS the timet Eke a baby with gas. Who knew aS 
this waiting was such giddy fun? Bat Kerrigan 
seems dewnnmed to have a grand old time here 
at the Winter Games, as if practice woe an 
endless commercial shoot And probably it is. 

Kerrigan did ha best not to notice be pres- 
ence of ha pal Thursday an the six-week amn-

by a tog hired by Harding's forma husband. It

oca every coma erf the rink, but wherever Kero- 

Now, anybody who has ever run a race 
knows the rush of positive energy that comes 
•from willing -the face muscles from a fatigued 
grimace to a joyous smile. There is a lot of 
snrilbg in this sport, or whatever it is. Figure 
skatos learn to smile in public after same judge 
has stock it to them, when the logical thing 
would be to shake a fist and talk trash. 

It is also true that skatera most display neat 
warm-up costumes and makeup and happy 
smiles during practice because the judge are 
making mental notes about who's got it and 
who doesn’t. Kerrigan's support system — ha 
coaches, Evy and Mary Scotvold, two of the 

Figure skaters learn to 
smile in public after some 
judge has stuck h to 

most positive and experienced people b the 
business — are doing the right thing by s m iling 
and dapping Hke seme hired opera daque. 

It’s part of the game: 

But snhHng conld became a chare for Nancy 
Kerrigan Tonya’s here. Tonya's not going 
away. Time is on Tonya's side. Tonya is a 
survivor. Tonya has survived her chaotic family 
life, and she has survived the legal skirmishes 
when theUSL Olympicf^ommicee tried wbaol 
her in for questioning about ha role b the 
celebrated inee-whackmg. 

Harding even survived ha long haul from 
Portland, performing the difficult PortZand-So- 
atile-Copeahagen-Oslo triple axel, and after 
one night b Europe toe went out to practice 

a giant “areaT-wo-having-fun'T snub 

Thursday, nine time zones out of kilter. 

But Tonya is on record that she does not 
believe in jet lag. Ha life seems uncluttered by 
awareness of many things 

She never seemed to notice the hundreds of 
reporters and photographers milling about the 
tiny practice rink. Tonya knows what she 
needs. She needs a nasal inhalator for ha 
asthma. She needs a smoke and a cold brew. 
And she needs to make some money. She 
doesn’t smile much. Life's too bard. 

Tonya was definitely not smiling at the end 
of ha afternoon workout, when abe tried a 
triple axel at the end of ha shat practice and 
wound up sprawled on the ice. She skated one- 
legged for a while, displaying no Kerri ganesque 
smiles, and she even made a few jumps at the 
end of practice. 

The trainer scooped up a bucketful of snow 
from the endless supply just ootride the door, to 
be applied to ha “chronically sore ankle." 
Tanya was Gmping when she left the building. 
She win be back. She’s not going away — 
certain] y not easily. 

That leaves Nancy Kerrigan with a smDe. 
Korigan did nothing to deserve bang whacked 
m the knee on Jan. 6 — Dothing except be b 
Tonya Harding's way, at least in the twisted 
reasoning of the four louts who (totted and 
committed the attack. 

Harding insists she had nothing to do with 
the plot, and she may never be charged with 
any thing . It may not be fair to make Kerrigan 
work out m the same sextet ^ with ba competitor 
who has links to the goons who whacked Nancy 
Korigan, but life is not fair. 

Tonya is b Norway. Tonya’s at the Winter 

And Nancy Kerrigan is smOmg. 

They have 12 points. 

The couple, who earned nine 
perfect scores of 6.0 for their 
“Bolero" b 1984. and who won 
the European title last month, 
now face an uphill battle for the 
gold medal. 

The compulsories — skated 
to the Starlight waltz and the 
Blues — count for 20 percent of 
the total score. Medal competi- 
tion b ice dancing is spread 
ova three nights, with original 
dance on Sunday and free 
dance on Monday. 

But even if they do take the 
original dance, they would not 
be certab of overall victory. 

Should Gritschuk and Platov 
win the free dance final as they 
did b Copenhagen last month, 
they win be the new champions. 

Usova and Zhulin narrowly 
won the opening Starlight 
waltz, but Gritschuk and Platov 
were conclusive winners of the 

The Britons' coaches, Bobby 
Thompson and Betty Calloway, 
remained optimistic. 

“It will depend on the free 
and we hope we have a winning 
free dance," Calloway said. 

Torvill and Dean have re- 
vamped their “Lei's Face the 
Music and Dance" free routine 
by 80 percent since Copenha- 
gen following their defeat in 
that section by Gritschuk and 

The overall decision in Den-

Panel Hearing 
Harding 9 s Case 
To Call GiUooly 

The Assodaied Press 

PORTLAND, Oregon — 
The U.S. Figure Skating Asso- 
ciation has asked Jeff GiUooly 
to testify at Tonya Harding’s 
disciplinary bearing March 9 
in Colorado. 

GiUooly previously pleaded 
guilty to a charge of racketeer- 
ing b connection with the at- 
tack fast month on Harding's 
Olympic rival, figure skater 
Nancy Korigan, and is tree 
pending sentencing. 

Gillooly’s attorney, Ron 
Hocvei, has filed a motion in 
county court asking that his 
client be allowed to attend the 
bearing. The court will consid- 
er the motion Tuesday. 

The association's heating 
will determine whether Har- 
ding should be stripped of 
membership b toe organiza- 
tion because of toe assault 
Korigan was dubbed in the 
lt$ after a practice session Jan. 
6 to uy to keep ba from com- 
peting in the Olympics. 

GiUooly, Harding's ex-hus- 
band, has charged that toe wa$ 
involved in toe plot to attack 
Kerrigan, and a county grand 
jury is considering whether 
criminal charges should be 
filed against Harding. 



JTm a Valuable Prize 

M IAMI — Today I am an- 
nouncing tire first-ever Ama- 
teur Tax Tips Contest, featuring an 
exciting prize as well as an opportu- 
nity for some lucky winners to serve 
lengthy terms in federal prison. 

The purpose of the Amateur Tax 
Tips Contest is 10 provide normal 
people with practical, real-life an- 
swers to their tax questions, as op- 
posed to the complex and vague 
“advice” we so often see in columns 
written by the kind of goody- two- 
shoes money geeks who actually 
save their receipts and record tbeir 
mileage and Tile their tax returns on 
Jan. 1 IT! give you an example of 
what I mean. 

QUESTION: “How much can I 
deduct for a business office in my 

GEEK ANSWER: “Calculate the 
size of the office as a percentage of 
the total living area, then use this 
figure to compute the pro rata costs 
of utilities, mortgage interest, taxes 
and insurance.” 

EARTH ANSWER: “$6.53187.” 
That’s whal we taxpayers want: 
concrete information. We don't 
want: “TotaJ your amortized capi- 
tal depreciation as specified in 
Schedule C, section 873, subsection 
VII, verses xii and xih.” We want: 
“Put down that you lost $3,83124 
operating a perch farm.” 


Perhaps you think I am suggest- 
ing something dangerous here. Per- 
haps you do not believe that the 
Internal Revenue Service (Motto: 
“We’ll Answer the Taxpayer Assis- 
tance Hot Line When You Pry the 
Coffee Cup From Our Cold, Dead 
Fingers") would allow you to take 
anything so ridiculous as a perch- 
farm deduction. 

Listen: You can deduct any- 
thing. People have deducted used 
underwear. And when I say “peo- 
ple," I of course mean “Bill Clin- 
ton." According to news reports, in 
past years President Clinton de- 
ducted as much as 52 per pair for 
used underwear that he donated to 
the Salvation Army. I applaud Mr. 
Clinton’s generosity, although I am 
troubled somewhat by the idea of 
any guy voluntarily giving up his 
underwear. Whoever says that guys 
are tm willing to make lifetime com- 
mitments clearly has not examined 
the intimate bond that can develop 
between a guy and his briefs.

A Nostalgic View of Paris Betwi 

International Herald Tribune 

P ARIS — “All the brasseries had bands. We sang, we 
played, we listened to the music. It was grand." 

“In the Place de la Bastille there were strongmen and 
sword swallowers and fire-eaters. There was also a swal- 
lower of frogs, up to 40 of them, who would spit them out 


again. The extraordinary thing was that they were all alive. 

Dead, they would have lacked charm." 

“A cloth cap didn’t brand you as working dass. Office

Memories of Paris between the wars: rosy for the most 
part but very real to the 1,075 Parisians who answered the 
call of Mayor Jacques Chirac for mementoes, snapshots 
and recollections of their youth. The result — some from 
Parisians expatriated as far as Denmark. Portugal and the 
United Stares — is on view in the exhibition “La Memoire 
de Paris 1919-1939” at the H6tel de VBle until April 30. 

Most of the participants come from simple back- 
grounds. The show is less to enlighten those who did not 
know the period than to provide a trip down memory lane 
for those who did. Visitors are mostly elderly people 
exchanging memories and recalling for each other such 
objects as schoolbooks, wooden butter curlers stained 
dark with use, Sagem Major pen nibs and a newspaper 
headline about an airplane landing on a Paris rooftop in 
January 1919 t“I was 8 years old.” an elderly lady re- 
marked to no one in particular). 

The exhibition is as crowded as a blockbuster art show, 
but visitors do not jostle and show a courtesy to each other 
that signifies, as much as the snapshots and oral memo- 
ries, how much Paris has changed. 

The memories collected in the catalogue recall street 
noises such as the tramway, horses’ hooves, the sabots of 

broken window panes (the r’s in vitrier were unsounded,

Hew York Times Service 

B ERLIN — This bustling metropolis has 
more than enough challenges to keep its 
politicians occupied. Giant construction pro- 
jects are under way. the government plans to 
move here from Bonn, and Eastern Europe’s 
convulsions are uncomfortably dose by. 

But for hundreds of thousands of Berlin resi- 
dents, these challenges pale in comparison with 
threats to their beloved gardens. They warn that 
if established political parties do not listen to 
them, they will form a new rate of their own. 

No one is taking these warnings lightly. 
“Whal the farmers are to France,” a local 
newspaper said recently, “the small gardeners 
are to Berlin." 

Taken individually, the gardeners hardly 
seem like revolutionaries. They are quintessen- 
tial good citizens like Hanndore Schmidt, who 
tends her fruit trees, herb gardens and vegetable 
patches every day, even in the water. 

“This garden is the center of my fife;” 
Schmidt said as she proudly pointed out two 
tiny daises that had managed to sprout 
through the near-frozen earth. “I have a dose 
feeling for God. and I think this is it” 

In most parts ol Germany, people Eke 
Schmidt are pillars of local life, a uaint symbols 
of self-suffiacocy and thenatirars mythic roots 
m agriculture. But Sdnmdt has suddatiy found ' 
herself cast as a public villain. The reason is 
that her garden Bes in tire heart of downtown 
Beriinjust two blocks from the glittering Kflr-' 
furstendamm. • _ 

While Bohn was a divided, dty, lavish snbsi- . 
dies from Bonn kept the standard of living here 
artificially high and allowed the indtd^aoice ctf ' 
many idiosyncraries- Now those subsidies are 
being slashed. 

As the city looks for hew sources of income, 
some officials axe casting then- eyes longingly . 
on the large plots of city-owned land in chic . 
central boroughs like Wilmersdcd that have for 
years been leased to gardeners. 

“We can’t hang on to all of ourcrfd Berlin 
traditions," Wolfgang Nagel, the city’s minister 
of construction, said in a widely publicized 
magazine interview. “It doesn’t make sense that 
the best sites in the inner city, like in WDmera- , 
dorf, are bring occupied by gardeners who pay 
only a few marks a year to use than. Why can't 
the city use that land to develop business and 
housing projects?" 

More than 8C4QQO families have garden plots, 
and another 16,000 are on waiting lists. Wary of 
. the gardeners’ politiralmnsde, many of Nagd’s
