Offickd Warns of a Dangerous Path*

MOSCOW — - Russia’ 3 coascrva live legisla-

to grant a hill amnesty to leaders of the 1991

The Slate Duma; the lower house- of the 
Federal Assembly that is led by Communists 
and estnan; nationalists, voted 252 to 67, with 
28 abstentions, to endtheprosecatiansof some 
of Mr. Yeltsin's fiercest opponents. 

The Duma vole came on the day before Mr. 
Yeltsin was scheduled to make. an important 

the future of reforms. 

Until now die Duma, which has been in 
session six weeks, had launched ihetorical at- . 

from thesort of Sectx»nl^tatk>ns that led 
Mr. Y dtsin to dissolve the fermer legislature in 
October and then order a tank attack against it 
The action on Wednesday was- the first overt 

a full assault on a president, whose political and 
physical health have recently been suspect * 
It was also a sign that Me. Yeltsin, .who 
sacrificed the two top economic ref carpers in 
his government after the reformers’ poor show- ■ 
ing in December’s legislative elections, has 
bought himself little political breathing space. - 
The constitution appears to give the Duma 
exclusive power to grant amnesties,- and :the 
resolution passed Wednesday declared the am- 
nesties effective immediately. But given Mr. 
Yeltsin's strong opposition to an amnesty, it. 
appeared unlikely that the leaders of the 1991 
coup attempt and the 1993 rebellion would 
leave prison right away. It seemed posable that 

Mr. Yeltsin might seek to forestall the Duma's 
action, or ignore it 

The Prosecutor General's office said the re- 
lease of the ringleaders could begin as early as 

^^^Veltsnf’s allies warned that the Duma 
vote was aimed at destahilizxng Russia and 
seizing power from Mr. Yeltsin’s government 
mid could lead to yet mother constitu- 
tional crisis. 

The president's spokesman, Vyacheslav Kos- 
tikov, arid the Duma had Tailod 10 draw les- 
sons. from the tatter experience” of the old 
legislature. “ 

“Tins is a dangerous path that runs counter 
to Russia’s interests,” he said. “The sde re- 
Spcmribffify for the consequences of this deci- 
sion rests with the State Duma.” 

- Yeltsin alfies challenged the legitimacy of the 
Duma’s action, which they said would abort 

"Tins problem cannot be resolved by a reso- 
lution of a legislative or political organ," said 
Vladimir Shumeiko, who heads (he upper 
chamber of.' the parliament, the Federation 
Council. “It is not up to the kgbdaiors to 
interfere in the legal process.” 

the constitution, passed in a December ref- 
erendum, says the Duma akme is empowered to 
grant amnesties. There is uO role specified for 
the upper house in the matter. 

Yegor T. Gaidar, Mr. Yeltsin’s former prime 
minister and chief economic adviser, said the 
president did not have the power to veto the 
Duma's amnesty declaration, which be called 
an “extrandy dangerous derision.”

Two Questions 
On Sarajevo: 
Why So Long? 
And Now What? 

By Elaine Sciolino 

Sear York Tima Semre 

WASHINGTON — Behind the self-congrat- 
ulation and assertions of victory in the Clinton 
administration over the military respite in Sara- 
jevo lie two stark realities: Fighting still rages in 
pans of Bosm a- Herzegovina, and any peace 
settlement may very well give the Muslims less 
territory than they could have got a year ago. 

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization al- 
lies can plausibly take credit for finally giving 
the Bosnian Serbs an ultimatum that worked, 
proving that the credible threat of force can get 
at least short-term results. But their success 


raises the question erf why it took the United 
States and the rest of NATO so long to issue 
such a threat. The Serbs have been seizing 
territory, after all for nearly two years. 

And now the administration finds itself in 
the uncomfortable position of trying 10 figure 
out what to do nexL 

The Russians have begin) to “deliver" the 
Serbs, who more or less did what the United 
Nations demanded or them around Sarajevo, 
and now the United States is being called on to 
deliver the Bosnian government without ap- 
pearing to be forcing it to make concessions. 

Last year, the administration initially refused 
10 endorse the peace plan proposed by the UN 
envoy, Cyrus R. Vance, and the European en- 
voy, Lord Owen, because they thought it de- 
manded unfair concessions by the Muslim- 
dominated government. That plan, however, 
offered more territory than tin Muslims are 
now likely to gel in any settlement. 

President Bill Clinton held out the tantaliz- 
ing possibility on Monday that a broader use of 
power and diplomacy could extend the calm in 
the Bosnian capital to OLhcr parts of the coun- 

But his senior military advisers warned legis- 
lators at a congressional hearing Wednesday 
that the Whire House did uot want to pres 
ahead with new measures in other parts of the 
country until the capital was securely under 
control, and that could take weeks. 

The unpredictability and volatility of Bosnia 
was highlighted again Tuesday when five Swed- 
ish UN peacekeepers were wounded while driv- 
ing in a particularly dangerous area near Tuzla, 
80 kilometers (50 miles) north of Sarajevo. That 
sent NATO commanders and UN offidals 
scurrying to determine whether NATO should 
retaliate; but in the end they decided the attack

HAMAR — It was a pose, and then it 
wasn't. For a moment Nancy Kerrigan's head 
was flung back and her arms were spread as 
gracefully as wings, but with the last strains of 
tension still trying to strangle her. Until then 
the smile was fixed and unbelievable. 

Then the people cheered and screamed as if 
wanting to pick her up on their shoulders and 
carry her down the street. 

To see her skate away from that was 10 see a 
statue coming to life. 

The sky was raining flowers wrapped in 
cellophane as the nine judges marked the 
scores that gave Kerrigan the lead after the 
technical program Wednesday night. On paper 
her lead is vulnerable, with 1993 world cham- 
pion CHksana Baiul of Ukraine in second place 
and four-time European champion Surya Bon- 
aly of France in third. The Olympic gold medal 
of women's figure skating, the Academy 
Award of sports, will ultimately be decided by 
the free program Friday night, worth two- 
thirds of the total score. 

By the way, Tonya Harding is in 10th place 
and practically out of contention for a medal. 

On Wednesday Kerrigan became everything 
the Harding people wanted to prevent her 
from becoming when they conspired to injure 
her right knee with a steel bar in Detroit Jan. 6. 
At the crowd’s urging, she accepted the role 
that never seemed to fit her before the attack. 
The judges watched her body but the public 
looked deep into her eyes. They conspired to 
cheer every time die landed without apparent 
flaw, wbicb was every single time, but all the 
time she appeared 10 be fighting herself. 

Now she was sitting on a couch at the end of 
the rink in tun white dress with black lace and 
flowers piled upon her lap and seven cute little 
gals struggling to carry a garden more each 
toward her. There must have been five dozen 
flowers for her. She Bright have sat and drank it 
all in. Instead she stood up and waved like 

their leader — another first for her — and she 
walked out before they had a chance to cele- 
brate the scoreboard announcement placing 
her in first. The noise followed her down the 
hallway like perfume. 

By now Harding was oul of the building. 

The evening began with what turned out to 
be a surprise appearance from Katarina Win. 
who was cheered as if the 6,000 paying custom- 
ers were not expecting to see her. They were 
saving themselves for Kerrigan. It was the 
toughest house Win ever played. 

There was aday when one could not imagine 
figure skating playing any sexier than Witt, but 
compared 10 the pressures of the American 
win-ai-all-cosi theme bring played out this 
night, the drama of a two-time Olympic cham- 
pion gambling her pride seemed almost insig-

she had returned to make things right, to

the 1980&. Every landing" brought from her a 
smile truer than any from her opponents. Her 
reward or an early lead was maintained 
throughout the first two hours of the program. 
She is in sixth place now. behind Goman 
teammate Tanja Szewczenko (fifth) and Lu 
Chen of China (fourth). 

A few minutes later. Harding appeared with 
the next group. Her dress was red and the 
rhinestones flickered. In the warm-up she was 
concentrating on her triple lutz, the first pan of 
her mandatory combination. She trembled on 
her landing, and the next time she fell. Twice 
more she attempted iu but she was only brave 
enough to complete a double. So this was going 
to decide the night for her. 

Her music was, “Much Ado About Noth- 
ing." You would think sbe might have wanted 
to change that. She began by moving backward

U.S. Is Cool 
To Yeltsin’s 
Summit Call 
For Bosnia 

White House Brush-Off 
Gets Echo in Germany; 
Maybe Later, They Say 

Compiled t* Oar Staff From DtspauJia 

WASHINGTON — The United States re- 
sponded coolly on Wednesday to President 
Boris N. Yeltsin's proposal for a one-day sum- 
mit meeting on Bosnia, saying such a meeting 
required “a lot 'of preparation.” 

The White House press secretary. Dee Dee 
Myers, did not rule out such talks completely, 
but the tone erf her comments on the Russian 
president's bid for a high-level meeting was 

“There's a tremendous amount of diplomatic 
action on Bosnia at this time.” she said. “A 
summit at the beads-of -state level would re- 
quire a lot of preparation.” 

Mr. Yeltsin said in Moscow, “I have pro- 
posed to put an end to the Yugoslav problem — 
Jei us meet, the leaders of Russia, the United 
States, France. Britain. Germany." 

"J hare proposed Moscow. Geneva, Boon, 
wherever,” he said, adding that “we would sign 
a document of historic importance and proba- 
bly put a final end to the bloodshed in Yugosla- 

Foreign Minister Klaus Kinkel of Germany 
said in Boon that the time was not yet ripe for 
summit talks. 

Ms. Myers noted that the discussions about 
how to achieve a peace agreement in Bosnia 
could lay the groundwork for a summit meeting 
at some point, and added, “If that’s an appro- 
priate step, well certainly take a look at it." 

Secretary of State Warren M. Christopher, 
testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations 
Committee, made no direct mention of the 
proposal, but said that cooperation with Russia 
on Bosnia was “not without iis difficulties, but 
nevertheless, the overall cooperation has been 

Mr. Christopher said the United States was 
pursuing its efforts to promote a lasting peace 
settlement through encouraging a Croatian- 
Muslim alliance that would create a kind of 
federated state and enable a two-way rather 
than a three-way division of the former Yugo- 

In Zagreb, Croats and Muslims agreed to a 
comprehensive cease-fire in Bosnia on Wednes- 
day, according to the United Nations special 
envoy, Yasushi AkasbL 

UN troops will deploy to key positions to 
ensure compliance with the terms of the truce. 
A joint commission would be set up by the UN 
peacekeeping force to supervise the carrying 
out of the agreement. 

Mr. Christopher also said that the United 
States was now looking at other UN-declared 
safe zones in Bosnia- Herzegovina and was 
making Tuzla and Srebrenica a priority, but 
that NATO would have to consider very care- 
fully before trying to repeat the Sarajevo opera- 
tion there. 

“We have been considering whether or not 
the Sarajevo precedent can be used elsewhere in 
Bosnia, we discussed that indeed at the White 
House Lhis morning,” Mr. Christopher said, 
“but we're looking at it with a lot of concern 
and a lot of restraint." 

The polite U.S. brushoff of Mr. Yeltsin’s 
proposal came a day after one of America's top 
coun term telligence agents was charged with 
spying for Moscow. 

But it did not appear to be directly related; 
rather, it seemed to reflect general Western 
wariness of Russian diplomacy in the former 
Yugoslav republic. 

“We need to consolidate what’s happened in 
Sarajevo,” Mr. Christopher said. But be added 
he was hopeful that Tuzla airport could be 
reopened. Serbian shelling has dosed the air- 
port, preventing relief workers from aiding 
thousands erf starving Bosnians. 

“I fed a very can-do attitude about that,” he 
said. “I hope that some combination of power 
and diplomacy wifi enable (hat airport to be 
opened.” He noted that, unlike Sarajevo, the 
problem in Tuzla did not stem from shelling 
from the hills but potential anti-aircraft at- 

The United Slates considers an end 10 the 
fighting between Bosnian Croats and Muslim- 
led government forces in central Bosnia crucial 
to an overall peace settlement Numerous 
cease-fires have failed. 

Bosnian Croats and the government were 
initially allies, but now have been battling for 
the 30 percent of Bosnia not claimed by the 

The cease-fire agreement reflected a new dip- 
lomatic push in the wake of the success of 
NATO's demand that Bosnian Serbs remove 
their heavy weapons from around Sarajevo. 

Then: have been hopes that the plan (hat 
worked for Sarajevo would work elsewhere in 
the country, but the shooting on Tuesday of five 
Swedish peacekeepers near the govemment- 
held city of Tuzla underscored the difficulty of 
realizing those hopes. (Reuters. AP)

much of the land in the area of Behmai, a village 
in the arid moonscape of Uttar Pradesh State 
150 nn3« (240 kilometers) south of New Delhi, 
The police verson was that Behmai was less 
an act of social protest than of revenge for the 
kilting of Miss Devi's lover by rival ducats, or 
rural robbers, and for the rape of a Miss Devi 
before she escaped and returning with her own 
dacoitgang. , 

Villagers said that 50 men were taken to the 
river bank for execution when Miss Devi was 
unable to find the two men who killed her lover 
and that the surwvtss included many who were 
gravely wounded. . 

The massacre so shocked India that Indira 
Gandhi, p rime minister at ibe time, ordered a 
police operation that took more than two years 
to bring Miss Devi 10 book, and then only by 
means of a surrender she stage-managed. 

Miss Devi appeared in jeans, with a loaded 

rifle and bandolier. She set terms that included 
a guarantee that she and fellow gang members 
would serve no more than eight years. 

The deal was kept for the men who surren- 
dered with their leader, but Miss Devi remained 
in prison until India's Supreme Court ordered 
her release last Friday.

France Sets Out to Buy Friendship on U.S, Campuses 


By Ken Brown 

.Vch- York Tima Scmcc 

NEW YORK — Fearful of becoming politically 
and culturally irrelevant. France is giving money to six 
major American universities in the hope of creating a 
new generation of Francophiles. 

The French are responding to declining interest 
among Americans in their language and culture, and 
to growing tension between France and the United 
States, which exploded into the open last year during 
the waning days of world trade talks. 

“France is the one major country that has not put 
much money or effort into American universities." 
said Ezra N. Suleiman, a professor of politics at 
Princeton University. “And with what happened with 
the GATT, they are reeling very misundinstood and 
ignored in the United Stales." 

Other countries, particularly Japan and Germany, 
have been giving money to American colleges and 
universities to further interest in their languages and 

Germany, for example, created centers for German 
studies at Harvard University, the University of Cali' 
forma at Berkeley and Georgetown University. 

The French program creates six Centers of Excel- 
lence in French Studies, which will emphasize interdis- 
ciplinary courses and research in French culture, poli- 

tics and science, said Philippe M. Reiiquet. who is 
based in New York as the deputy cultural counselor at 
the French Embassy. 

The six universities — Harvard. Princeton, John 
Hopkins, Berkeley, the University of Pennsylvania 
and the University of Chicago — will share 5400,000 a 
year for the next three years and will have wide 
discretion in using the money. The French govern- 
ment which will decide on future financing,, is evaluat- 
ing the program. 

While the French government stresses the positive, 
hoping to improve communications and understand-' 
rag between France and the United States, American 
academicians say there are more fundamental reasons 
for its generosity. 

“If France ceases to be important for the Uniied 
States, it's not going to be long before it's not impor- 
tant for anybody else, except the French," said Ste- 
phen G. Nichols, a professor of French and human- 
ities at Johns Hopkins. 

And there is evidence that France has begun to slip 
in the United Slates. A 1991 study by the Modem 
Language Association, which is made up of teachers 
and language scholars, showed that while total college 
enrollment in foreign language classes rose 18 percent 
from 1 986 to 1 990. enrollment in French Tell I peroeoL 

During the same period, enrollment in Japanese 

classes increased 95 percent. Russian 31 percent, 
Spanish 30 percent and German 10 percent. Of the 12 
most popular languages in college instruction, the only 
ones besides French to decline were Hebrew and 
antieni Greek. 

The long-term trend is even more troubling, accord- 
ing to the study, which was financed by the federal 
government. From 1968 to 1990. enrollment in French 
language classes decreased 30 percent, while enroll- 
ment in Japanese classes jumped nearly 1,000 percent. 

The popularity of Japanese and other languages in 
the United States stems in part from support of the 
governments of those countries. And while enrollment 
in language classes is not an exact measure of interest 
in a country, it is a good barometer, educators say. 

“If the French didn't begin to have similar pro- 
grams. it was going to be very difficult to maintain the 
level of visibility that French has always had." Mr. 
Nichols said, adding that for the French, acknowledg- 
ing the problem was half the battle. 

It means, he said, “admitting the undrinkable, 
which means that French culture somewhere in the 
world might not be where it used to be.” 

While the opening of Euro Disney outside Paris and 
the popularity of American movies in France hod 
some effect on the French initiative, officials on both 
sides of the Adamic said the explanation was broader. 

The final 
Agreement on 

days of negotiations on the General 


Tariffs and Trade in December were 
between the French and Ameri- 
cans over movies and tefevisfon. 

The Fiend] won the baffle, after getting support 
from other European countries, and movies and televi- 
sion were exduded from the proposed world trade- 
liberalization package. 

The fight over opening France to more American 
movies and tdevirion series left bad feelings, which 
have been compounded by French-American disputes 
over agriculture subsidies and the war in Bosnia- 
Herzegovina. Relations between the two countries 
have become strained. 

While the program of academic grants has only a. 
small budget, it was debated at the highest levels of 
French government, Mr. Nichols said. 

“You have to understand," he said, “the French are 
big on concepts, so the concept was a lot bigger than 
the money." 

Irrelevance may be inconceivable, or at least inad- 
missible. to the French. But to Americans who teach 
about France, the prospect is real and they are both 
pleased and relieved at the new program. 

“it allows us to break the stereotypes in which you 
associate France with wine and cheese,” Mr. Nichols

Paris Says Breeder Reactor Will Serve Research 

By Barry James 

International HeraU Tnhunc 

PARIS — The French govern- 
ment said Wednesday that it would 
resume operation of the accident- 
plagued Superphenix breeder reac- 
tor. but that the generation of dec- 
tririiy would no Longer be its 
principal purpose. 

Instead, tacitly reflecting grow- 
ing international concern about nu- 
clear proliferation, it said the reac- 
tor would be recommissioned as a 
research machine, partly to study 
how to dispose of plutonium and 
long-lived radioactive waste prod- 

The announcement followed on 
the heels of reports that Japan in- 
tends to slow down its nuclear fuel 
producing and recycling program* 
Japan intends to activate a breeder 
reactor, similar to the Superphenix.

other such reactors and expand re- 

E recessing facilities could be set 
ack 20 years, according to Japa- 
nese and U.S. officials in Tokyo. 

The Superphenix reactor at 
Creys-MalviJJe, the first of its kind, 
was conceived in the early 1970s 
during the lime of the first world oil 
crisis and amid concerns that ura- 
nium would become increasingly 

Planners then thought France's 
electricity needs would increase 7 
percent a year indefinitely, which 
has not been the case. And the 
breeder reactor has proved much 
costlier and more complicated to 
operate than light-water reactors.

technical problems. 

In its breeder configuration, the 
plant bums a mixture of 15 percent 

? lutonium and 85 percent uranium 
38, and produces both electricity 
and further supplies or fuel in the 
form of plutonium. 

The world is now awash in urani- 
um, partly as a result of military 
cutbacks in the Uniied States and 
Russia. The main international 
concern is about plutonium, which 
can easily be turned into material 
for fusion weapons. 

The Superphenix has been shut 
down since July 1 990, following the 
contamination of its liquid sodium 
coolant. Industry Minister Gerard 

Longuet told reporters that it 
would be used for research and 
demonstration purposes, rather 
than for electricity generation, and 
that the overriding consideration 
would be for security. 

The plant has cost an estimated 
25 billion francs (54— billion), not 
counting foregone income from 
lost electricity generation, and the 
cost of any compensation to the 

io burn the fuel currently in the 
reactor core. And they said it would 
be capable of handling only a liny 
fraction of the nuclear wake pro- 
duced in France each year. 

cost of any compensat 
French-halian-German consor- 

tium that operated the facility. 

In a different configuration of 
the fuel assembly, the breeder reac- 
tor produces less plutonium than it 
consumes and could, in theory, be 
used to bum both excess plutonium 
and some of the long-lived actin- 
ides produced in conventional re- 
actors. But experts said it would 
take several years to convert the 
plant from a breeder to a burner 
role, since it will be necessary first 

Officials stressed that the deci- 
sion on the breeder reactor did not 
affect the country’s nuclear hid re- 
processing program. France, which 
has 57 nuclear reactors producing 
three-quarters of its declridty, op- 
erates two plants at Cherbourg that 
currently handle about 90 percent 
of the world’s reprocessing. 

British plans to activate a similar 
plant this year have been chal- 
lenged in the High Court in Lon- 
don. Japan, which currently oper- 
ates only a pilot reprocessing unit, 
is planning to build a commercial 
unit at Rokkasho. But the status of 
this project was not clear following 
the reports of a slowdown in the 
nuclear program. 

At the Cherbourg plant, about 3 
percent of highly fissile waste is 
removed from irradiated fuel rods 
in a" chemical process. This is then 
sealed into glass blocks to ensure 
its stability. The blocks are stored 
on the site pending permanent un- 
derground disposal at a site yet to 
be selected. 

The remainder of the fuel, con- 
sisting of 1 percent plutonium and 
96 percent uranium, can be reused. 

A mixed oxide reactor fueL con- 
taining plutonium in place of en- 
riched uranium, is used in reactors 
in Germany and Belgium, and at 
five reactors in France, but is not 
currently recyclable. This means 
dial the supply of plutonium from 
the reprocessing is mounting, lead- 
ing to the concern about prolifera-

as reactor rods from Japan. Germa- 
ny and some other European coun- 
tries. The agreements rail for the 
return of the reusable uranium, the 
plutonium and Lhe highly radioac- 
tive waste. But when France sent 
back a ton of plutonium belonging 
to Japan last year, an international 
outcry ensued. 

The Uniied Stales abandoned a 
project to build a . commercial re- 
processing plant during the Carter 
administration. It stores spent re- 
actor fuel rods in tanks of water 
above ground.

France's fuel recycling firm. Co-

not have the option of •‘wasting" 
such energy. Each ton of plutoni-

By Thomas W. Lippman 

Washington Post Service 

WASHINGTON — A Uniied States decision to 
provide loan guarantees that would permit completion 
of a Soviet-designed nuclear power plant in the Czech 
Republic is drawing strong objections from Austria 
and from environmental groups. 

Austria issued a diplomatic protest Tuesday in an 
effort to persuade Congress to prevent the Export- 
Import Bank from issuing the guarantees. The plant 
would be less than 40 miles (65 kilometers) from the 
Austrian border. 

The Ex-Im Bank has notified Congress that it in- 
tends to guarantee S3 17 million in international loans 
so that CEZ. the Czech electric utility, can hire Wes- 

Lingbouse Electric Co. to finish the plant and provide 
nuclear fuel. The bank made its decision after the 
While House endorsed the project. 

Any move to complete and operate a Soviet-de- 
signed nuclear plant was bound to stir controversy in 
Eastern and Central Europe, still traumatized by the 
1986 Chernobyl disaster. But the Ex-Ira bank agreed 
to the deal after the National Security Council and the 
U.S. Nuclear Regulatory' Commission approved it. 
Ex-Im concluded it represented an economically feasi- 
ble way to provide electricity to Lhe Czech Republic 
while reducing air pollution there caused by coal- 
buming power plants. 

By law. the Ex-Im bank decision cannot become 
finai until 35 da vs after the notification to Congress, 
which was dated* Jan. 27. 

An Austrian delegation beaded by the former for- 
eign minister, Peter Jankowitsch. is in Washington 
trying to persuade Congress to block the transaction. 
The delegation issued an aide-memoire proclaiming 
Austria’s “most serious concern about the derision to 
attempt grafting U.S. instrumentation and control 
systems, and a new fuel design onto a flawed Soviet 
design, particularly at this stage of construction." 

The 1,900-megawail Teradin Nuclear Power Plant 
consists of two units — one about 65 to 85 percent 
complete, the other 50 percent complete — according 
to trade journals. 

“An accident atTemebn could result in devastating 
health, environmental, economic and social conse- 
quences for all of Austria's eight million citizens.” 
according to a “technical memorandum" prepared for 

the delegation by Austrian scientists. “The Chernobyl 
experience has shown that nuclear hazards do not 
respect national borders.” 

That report said the International Atomic Energy 
Agency had identified 16 areas in which the Soviet 
reactors, known as WER-1000. were “deficient when 

compared to U ^.regulations and IAEA standards.” 

National Security Council's review, however, 
said the agency and the Department of Energy agreed 
that “the WER-1000 design can be improved to meet 
a level of safety acceptable to Western countries." 

The Clinton administration is satisfied that Czech 
nuclear regulators have the “technical competence 
and commitment to safety" to

Proposed Tax on Childless 
Provokes Outcry in Germany 

in Germany, as in many developed countries, the : 
family is falling on hard times. But a federal minis- : 
ter's proposal to tax childless Germans in order to 
increase family benefits has brought angry dissent. \ 
The numbers tell Lhe storv: More than half of all I 

Germans live in childless or one-child households, 
and only one household in 20 has three or more 
children, reports the magazine WirtschaftsWoche. 
Parents having their seventh child (or more> receive a 
bonus or 500 Deutsche marks (S290) and the con- 
gratulations of the federal president. But last year, 
fewer than 600 couples qualified, and President 
Richard von Weizsacker was kept far busier congrat- 
ulating those Germans who turned 100 (there were 
1,959. up from 1.827). 

Hannclore Roensch. minister for families, says an 
additional 9 billion DM is needed for family bene- 
fits. Bui her proposal to tax the childless has been 
sharply condemned by representatives of all parties. 
“We need a new tax on the childless.” said the 

Christian Democrats' Friedhdm Ost, “like we need 
a new tax on the bearded or the bald.” 

The number of British men using an ti ^fisr ri mi na - 
tion laws to secure jobs traditionally held by women 
is up sharply. The Sunday Times reports. More than 
40 percent of such complaints are now filed by men 
seeking work as secretaries, sales assistants, or in 
child-care and health- related fields. The trend, ac- 

cording to the Equal Opportunities Commission, is 

explained partly by recession and partly by a shift 

from manufacturing to the service sector throughout 
the economy.

In 1980s , U S. Caught Swarms of Spies 

The Associated Press 

The case of Aldrich JL Ames is the latest m a 
series. Fottowmg are some other recent cases that 
have been made public 

• A former CIA agent, David H. Barnett, 

pleaded guilty in 1980 to spying for the Soviet 
Union between 1976 and 1979 wink he was 
based in Indonesia. Hie first current or former 
CIA agent convicted of espionage, Mr. Barnett 
admitted to haying exposed the identities of 30 
American agents. . 

• Retired Warrant Officer John A. Walker . 
Jr. of the U.S. Navy pleaded, guilW m !985 
along with his son, Soman Michael L Walker, 
22, to charges of spying for the Soviet Union. 
Mr. Walker admitted to having passed secrets 
to the Soviets while he was a shipboard commu- 
nications officer and after his retirement by 
Recruiting his son. brother and a Mend to pro- 
vide fresh information. ' 

Mr. Walker's brother, Arthur Walker, a nr» 
tired navy lieutenant commander, was convict- 
ed in 1985 of stealing secret documents from a 
defense contractor and giving them to John A. 
Walker Jr. for delivery to the Soviets. . 

. • A former CIA clerk, Sharon Scranage, 
pleaded guilty in 1983 to disclosing the nsmus 
of US. intelligence agents to her Ghanaian 
boyfriend. Miss Scranage served in Ghana for 
the CIA. 

- ' • A QA translator. Larry Wu-tai Chin, was 
convicted in 1986 of spying for China since 
1952. Within days of bis conviction, Mr. Chin 
killed himself by placing a plastic bag over his 
face m dk of asphyxiation. 

• A former CIA officer, Edward Lee How- 
ard, fled the country in 1985 as the FBI was 
investigating him for spying for the Soviet 
Union. Mr. Howard, who is accused of disclos- 
ing the identities of CIA agents in Moscow. 

turned op in the Soviet Union in 1986. where be 
still lives. 

• A former employee of the National Securi- 
ty Agency. Ronald W. Pdton, was convicted in 
1986 of selling lop-secret signals intelligence 
information to the Soviet Union. 

• Jonathan Jay P oDard, a civilian navy intel- 
ligence analyst, pleaded guilty in 1986 to spying 
for Israel He is serving a life sentence, but 
President Bill Ginton is considering his appli- 
cation for clemency, which is supported by the 
Israeli government. 

• Feb* Block, a Foreign Service officer, was 
suspended in 1989 by the State Department 
after reportedly being monitored by video cam- 
era passing a suitcase to a Soviet agent in Paris. 
Mr. Bloch, who was once charge d'affaires at 
the U.S. Embassy in Vienna, was not charged 
with espionage, but was dismissed in 1990 on 
grounds that he lied to investigators. 

But Mr. Clinton and other top 
UiL officials emphasized that Rus- 
sia’s response to stem U.S. com- 
plaints about the matter could have 
some impact on U.S.-Russian rela- 

The White House's dual message 
strongly implied that Washington 
was seeking 10 maintain the overall 
direction of its Russia policy while 
exacting some price from Moscow 
for its alleged complicity in obtain- 
ing damaging U^. secrets from Al- 
drich Hazen Ames. 

Mr. Ames, a senior CIA officer 
who formerly oversaw counterin- 
telligence against the Soviets, was 
charged Tuesday with passing se- 
crets to the Soviet Union and then 
to the Russian government. 

Mr. Clinton said his policy, 
which has focused on vigorous sup- 
port for President Boris N. Yeltsin 
as long as be continues on a path 
toward greater democracy and 
free-market economics, was not in 

“1 do not think the facts of this 
case at this time undermine in anv 
way, shape or form the policy we 
have followed for the last year to- 
ward President Yeltsin and his gov- 
ernment and the forces of change in 
Russia.” Mr. Clinton said at an 
impromptu news conference. 

He added: “1 still believe it is in 
the interest of the United State to 
support democracy, to support the 
movement toward economic re- 
form, to support the absence of 
weapons proliferation, to support 
the denuclearization of Russia." 

But the president also character- 
ized the Ames matter as “unusually 

In direct complaints to the Rus- 
sian government. U.S. officials 
have reportedly demanded the 
withdrawal of Russian diplomats 
wbo they believed worked with Mr. 
Ames to obtain U.S. secrets. 

There were also signs that the 
CHnton administration was consid- 
ering expulsion of the Russian dip- 
lomats if Moscow did not act vol- 
untarily, and the White House may 

hzve also demanded further Rus- 
sian actions to clear the air. 

U.5. officials refrained from 
publicly spelling out any demands. 

“We nave launched a formal pro- 
test and a strong one." Mr. Clinton 
said. "I think we should wait and 
see what the full response of the 
Russians is before we make any 
other determinations." 

Earlier. Dee Dee Myers, the 
White House press secretary , said. 
“IF they don't take action, we will." 

Some of the strongest Language 
came from Secretary of Slate War- 
ren M. Christopher’ 

Saying that recent Russian ac- 
tions* have “revived our fears." he 
told a Senate committee that “the 
extent of (be effect of this incident 
on our relationship with Russia will 
depend upon Russian actions in 
the days ahead." 

Mr. Christopher repeatedly re- 
ferred to the espionage matter as 
“very serious.” 

Despite murmurings in Congress 
suggesting that the future of U.S. 
financial aid to Russia should be 
reviewed. Mr. Christopher gave no 
hint that such aid hung in the bal- 

At least one important senator 
said Wednesday that the incident 
should be linked to future aid. Den- 
nis DeConcim. an Arizona Demo- 
crat who is chairman of ibe Senate 
Select Committee on Intelligence, 
said he hoped UJ5. officials would 
teD the Russians that “if they con- 
tinue this kind of operation, it's 
going to jeopardize future fund- 

Mr. Christopher said that U.S. 
aid was not “chanty.” but rather an 
investment in the kinds of demo- 
cratic reforms that are in the strate- 
gic interests of the United States. 

“We don't have illusions about 
the Russians.” Mr. Christopher 
told Congress. “We understand

Moscow Dismisses Episode as a Trifle, ‘Nothing Sensational 9

MOSCOW — Senior Russian

day over the spy furor in Washing- 
ton, 'dismissing- it —a* -a

sia’s recent diplomatic coup in Bos-

At title same lime, W Mpfle n l-Bo- 
fis N. Yeltsin's senior spokesman 
unleashed a fierce. Cold War-style 
tirade against NATO, accusing the 
Western aDtance of war-moegeriog 
in Bosnia. ... 

‘ In the comments of several se- 
nior officials, there was an under- 
,woe of concern on Wednesday that 
for the first time since tbecouapse 
bf Soviet communism, tendon be- 
tween Washington and Moscow 
might challenge the vaunted new 
partnership between the Cold War

- *Thet&is nothing sensational in 
the fact, that intelligence services 
are working in various countries,” 
said Yuri Kobaladze, chief spokes- 
man for the Russia’s Foreign Intd- 
Hgence Service, a successor agency 
to the KGB, speaking. an Russian; 
television. ‘This is totally the prob- 
lem of Waritmgton, the OA and 
the FBLli doesn't involve us.” 

Mr. Kabaladze also warned 
Washington against Upsetting bi- 
lateral relations. “We have to be 
very careful not to rock the boat,” 
he said, according to Reuters.

Vyacheslav Kostikov, warned

I Mr. Ames, a former chief of the 
CIA's counterintelligence branch 
for the Soviet Union arid then Rus- 
sia. was arrested and charged with 
receiving about SI J million in re- 
turn for furnishing secrets to Mos- 
cow for years. 

The Russian remarks playing 
down the case came as the US. 
ambassador to Russia, Thomas R. 
Pickering, delivered a formal pro- 
test on Wednesday to Deputy For- 
eign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Mr. 
Lavrov was standing in fra Foreign 
Minister Andrei Y. Kozyrev, who 
was in Poland. 

At a news conference in the Pol- 
ish city of Krakow, Mr. Kozyrev 
said: “I think we have already 
readied a stage in our relations 
where any incident requires proof. 
I rule out any breakefown in our 
partnership. There may be corapii- 

catioos. so we need to stabilize our 

Gleg Kalugin, a retired KGB 
general, said in an interview that 
spying continued much as before 
between the two countries, but that 
it had. lost much of its subversive 
nature of the Cold War. 

“This is something we have to 
live with." Mr. Kalugin said. “I 
think this case has bran overdra- 
matized by U.S. officials. Lode, we 
did have KGB guys arrested in 
Moscow as CIA spies, and nobody 
ever demanded the withdrawal of 
embassy officials. 1 would lake this 
as one of those episodes left over 
from the Cold War." 

He said that it was “a major coop 
for the Soviets.” because Mr. Ames 
had worked for so long for Mos- 
cow. and added: “It’s also a major 
coup Tor U.S. counterintelligence. 
So I would congratulate both.” 

Mr. Kalugin and other analysis 
noted that United States espionage 
in Russia did not appear to have 

diminished since the collapse of 
communism at the end of 1991. 

Last month, on the eve of Presi- 
dent Bill Clinton's visit to Moscow, 
a senior counterintelligence official 
said at a news conference here that 
20 Russians had been arrested re- 
cently for spying, presumably in- 
chiding at least some working for 
U.S. intelligence agencies. The pro- 
nouncement received little publici- 
ty and was not remarked upon by 
other Russian officials. 

The Russian news agency Inter- 
fax quoted an unidentified senior 
Russian diplomat as expressing 
surprise that Washington chose to 
make the Ames case public. "Our 
agents work in the US, and Amer- 
ican agents work in Russia.” he 
said, “ft is business as usual.” 

The official added that some 
American diplomats working for 
the CIA and some Russian citizens 
could be exposed as spies for the 
United States, “but we don’t do 

“The Americans don’t do this 

either," he said. “Why should they 
cast a shadow on relations with 
Russia? It is here that the Clinton 
administration gains the most 

Several Russian analysts sug- 
gested that ibe Clinton administra- 
tion might use the Ames case to 
embarrass Russia because of 
Washington's unease over Mos- 
cow’s rde in lifting the siege of 
Sarajevo, the Bosnian capital. 

Under the threat of NATO’s ul- 
timatum to bomb Serbian artillery 
positions besieging Sarajevo. Rus- 
sia moved 400 of its troops under 
the United Nations Hag into the 
area last weekend and persuaded 
ibe Serbs to withdraw. The move 
obviated the need for immediate 
NATO air strikes but left many 
American officials suspicious of 
Moscow’s motives. 

The Kremlin, for its part, trum- 
peted its role as a triumph for Mr. 
Yeltsin and Russian diplomacy 
and as a sign of Russia’s re-emer- 
gence as a world power. 

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department has acted to protect 
black-majority congressional districts that are faring private legal 
challenges in three states and is considering similar action in a fourth 
suite. . 

The department moved to intervene and join the state of Georgia 
in defending a challenge to the constitutionality of the district of 
Representative Cynthia McKinney, one of three black and eight 
white House members from Georgia. 

It decided to file friend-of-tbe-coun briefs in similar cases in 
North Carolina, where the district of another Democratic represen- 
tative. Melvin Wait, has been challenged, and in Texas, where a 
Latino-majority district and a black majority district in the Houston 
area have been attacked as unconstitutionally drawn. 

“This department is committed to protecting minority voting 
rights gains that were achieved through redisricting after (he 1990 
census." Attorn ev General Janet Reno said. 

“Our actions today will help ensure that the dock is not turned 
b irk and that those gains are not undone,” she said. 

Later. President Bill Clinton added: “These hard-won victories 
must not be abandoned." 

Ms. Reno's announcement and Mr. Clinton's follow-up state- 
ment. however, failed to reassure members of the Congressional. 
Black Caucus and other minority leaders who said even stronger 
action was necessary to preserve blade and Latino gains achieved as 
a result of redisiriciing for the 1992 elections. 

“We think she should intervene in all of the cases.” said Represen- 
tative Geo Fields. Democrat of Louisiana, whose Z-shaped district 
has been ruled unconstitutional by a three-judge federal court The 
Justice Department filed a friend-of-thecourt brief in his case, 
which is now being appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. 

The private lawsuits were filed after the Supreme Court ruled last 
year in a North Carolina case that state legislatures might be 
violating white voters’ rights to equal protection of the laws by 
creating congressional districts designed to give minorities an elec- 
toral majority. 

Pr imar ily as a result of political boundary changes, 13 more blacks 
and six more Latinos were elected to the House m 1992. 

Blacks were sent to Congress for the first time in a century from 
Virginia and for the first time ever from North Carolina, South 
Carolina, Florida and Arkansas. (LA T) 

Money isn't Everything, the Losers Learn 

WASHINGTON — Looking at the year-end bank accounts of the 
national political party committees, it’s hard to tell the winners from 
the losers. 

The Democratic N alional Committee raised a record amount for a 
nonpresidential year but spent most of it 

The Republican National Committee, which lost the contest for 
the White House, is flush. 

And while President Bill Clinton says campaign finance reform is 
a legislative priority, his party raised nearly hah its funds in 1993 
from wealthy individuals and corporations in so-called soft money 
— one or the most criticized aspects of the present system. 

Records of the Federal Election Commission show that the 
Democratic National Committee raised $31.2 milli on last year. 

But it had more debts than cash in the bank before counting its 
soft-money reserves. 

The Republican National Committee outdid the Democrats by 
nearly SI0 million. 

’ It had nearly $7 million in the bank and no debts heading into 
1994. when 36 'governorships are up for grabs, as well as the entire 
House and 34 Senate seats. ( WP) 

High Court Protects Federal Agencies 

WASHINGTON — Federal agencies cannot be forced to pay 
monetary damages to people whose constitutional rights they violat- 
ed. the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday. 

A 1971 high court ruling allows people who allege constitutional 
violations to sue federal officials in federal courts. But the justices 
Wednesday unanimously said the government and its agencies were 
not subject to such lawsuits. 

“If we were to imply a damages action directly against federal 
agencies, there would be no reason for aggrieved parties to bring 
damages actions against individual officers,” Justice Clarence 
Thomas wrote for die court. 

That would end the deterrent effect of the 1971 ruling, be said. 

House Leader Injured in Auto Accident 

WASHINGTON — Robert H. Michel of Illinois, the House 
Republican leader, suffered head injuries in a car accident near the 
Capitol budding, his office sard. 

He was taken to a hospital but his injuries did not appear serious,

Russians Yearning for Change 

But They Cannot Agree on How to Proceed 

By Margaret Shapiro 
and Fred Hiatt 

Washington Pan Service 

MOSCOW —They lined up for 
hours in the gloomy cold, stamping 
their boots w ihe" black slush of 
Manezh Square. The patient thou- 
sands waited not Tor bread, as they 
might have two years ago, but to 
buy shares in an automobile fac- 
tory. During two days in Decem- 
ber. they had bet a b'tQion rubles on 
the risky new venture. 

Across town, the other side of 
Russia's economy could be found 
in the dark and quiet workshops of 
one of Russia's largest truck mak- 
ers. The workers of the Zil factory 
are on monthlong Furloughs be- 
cause the plant has been unable to 
survive without the giant govern- 
ment subsidies of the past. 

The two scenes reflect where 
Russia stands two years into its 
attempt to convert its economy 
from Soviet socialism to free-mar- 
ket capitalism. In recent weeks, 
many nave concluded that the ini- 
tiative is in grave, perhaps even 
fatal trouble. Reformers have been 
pushed out of power and the gov- 
, eminent of President Boris N. Yelt- 
sin is now managed by ex-Soviet 
apparatchiks, eager to slow or re- 
verse the course. Communist and 
ultranaiionalist forces are ascen- 
dant. riding a wave of public dis- 

But. in fact. the situation in Rus- 
sia is contradictory and complicat- 
ed. A rudimentary market econo- 
my, crass and corrupt, has bunt 
;into life and changed the face of 
Russia's cities with billboards and 
glittery storefronts. Meanwhile, the 
old Soviet system of huge govern- 
ment subsidies bangs on. Missile 
factories and collective farms alike 
seem near collapse and still look to 
Moscow for rescue.

Rusria so far has avoided the 
predicted starvation, mass unrest 
and other disasters. Moreover, 
many Russians have seized on their 
new freedom to buDd businesses or 
spin off private farms with a gusto 
for personal initiative that many 
experts had said would be missing 
for at least a generation. 

At the same time, at least one- 
quarter of Russians are officially 
impoverished, unable to afford on- 
ions with their nighdy potatoes, 
and an even larger segment feel 
themselves worse off than under 
communism. There is an almost 
universal sense or exhaustion after 
two years, and some Russians have 
begun to ask if their country may 
be incapable of embracing West- 
ern-Style capitalism. 

There is a widespread feeling 
that something different must be 
tried. But there is little agreement 
on what 

“Russia today is short or politi- 
cal ideas," acknowledged Yegor T. 
Gaidar, the architect of Russia’s 
reforms who resigned from the gov- 
ernment last month and believes 
that the solution is to go faster. “All 
the words have been pronounced. 
Life has become worse for many 
people. And a great disappoint- 
ment has manifested itself." 

Mr. Gaidar, a 36-year-old econo- 
mist who sometimes seems cursed 
by an ability to see his failures as 
well as bis achievements in histori- 
cal perspective, noted that every 
previous auempL at Russian reform 
had begun from the top. From Pe- 
ter the Great to Stalin, these top- 
down spurts of modernization 
seemed to bear fruiL 

But each burst of enforced, and 
often brutal industrialization was 
followed by collapse or stagnation, 
Mr. Gaidar said, in which Russia 
again found itself trailing the 

So when Russia freed prices and 
stopped setting producuon quotas 
in early 1992. “it was a method- 
ologically new breakthrough in 
Russian history,*' Mr. Gaidar 
wrote in the newspaper Izvestia. 

“The state did not spur the people, 
but on the contrary loosened its 
grip-" . , 

Some critics disagree, saying mat 
Mr. Gaidar and his allies fell into 
the old Russian pattern by forcing 
privatization and free markets on a 
suspicious population with the zeal 
of Peter the Great cutting off his 
boyars’ “Oriental” beards. 

The reformers moved too fast, 
the critics say. No wonder that half 
of Russians stayed away from De- 
cember's parliamentary elections, 
while a majority of the rest voted 
for Comm unis ts or uliranational- 
ists such as Vladimir V. Zhirin- 

The reformers say that, on da 
contrary, the government moved 
too slowly. That spurred inflation, 
crimping badly needed investment. 

In fact, experts agree, it was nev- 
er realis tic to think that Russia 
could leap full-blown into democ- 
racy and free- market prosperity. 
Reform in Russia actually faced 
not one. but three huge challenges, 
said the Harvard economist Jeffrey 
Sachs. There was the financial mess 
left by the Soviet regime, which had 
frittered away resources. and run up 
huge debts, there was 3 vast state 
bureaucracy and rules that smoth- 
ered normal impulses of supply 
and demand. Finally, Russia's in- 
dustrial base was fatally skewed 
toward military and smokestack in- 

Russia, under its reform govern- 
ment. actually made progress in the 
first two areas. Helped by an agree- 
ment to postpone debt payments to 
the Wes l the nation's foreign-ex- 
change reserves grew. The ruble for 
the fust lime became a quasi-con- 
vertible currency. 

An empty-shdf economy, domi- 
nated by barter, black-market 
money-trading and backdoor deals 
for scarce commodities, was re- 
placed by an extraordinarily ener- 
getic. if improvised, network of 
wholesale and retail markets. Infla- 
tion. after shooting up to nearly 30 
percent a month, dropped to 12 
percent in December.

CIA official in the coven opera- 
tions branch in the 1980s, quoted in 
a New York Times report. 

[“That man would have had ac- 
cess to everything but a very Tew 
cases." said Mr. Jameson, a farmer 
staff chief of CIA covert operations 
against the Soviet Union. 

[“Any penetration we had of the 
Soviet military, or the KGB. as a 
matter of course he would have 
known about,” Mr. Jameson said. 

[“As a fundamental part of his 
job, be could recall any document 
from the files and scrutinize it" 
Mr. Jameson said. “Thar would be 
no information remotely touching 
on counterintelligence that he 
wouldn't have access to. Nobody in 
a comparable position has been 
charged with such a crime.”] 
Senator Dennis DeConcini. 
Democrat of Arizona, the chair- 
man of the Senate intelligence com- 
mittee, who was briefed on the case 
by two officials from the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation and three 
from the CIA, said: “It’s very seri- 
ous. At first blush, he certainly had

That Mr. Ames's alleged work 
was able to escape detection for at 
least six years — from 1985 until 
1991, when suspicions formed in 
the CIA's coumerinteUigenoe of- 
fices — constitutes a spectacular 
failure of the CIA’s elaborate 
mechanisms for self-protection. 

Encouraged by the legendary 
paranoia rtf a former counlerintdli- 
gence chief, James Jesus Angleton. 
the CIA created elaborate safe- 
guards against the kind of decep- 
tion spelled out in the 39-page FBI 
affidavit supporting Mr. Ames's ar- 
rest. The agency tightly controls 
classified documents, routinely 
mokes employees take lie-detector 
tests, restricts their travel and 
shares sensitive information only 
with those who "need to know." 

None of these safeguards caught 
Mr. Ames.

one of the agency's most important 
offices during the Cold War. 

Deaths of ai Least Two Russians 
Spying for U.S. Linked to Suspect . 

The Associated Pros ■ 

WASHINGTON — At least two Russians who were spying for 
iheU-S. government were killed after Aldrich Hazen Ames disclosed 
their identities to Russian intefligence agencies, a retired CIA officer 
and a congressional official said Wednesday. 

Vincent Cannistrara a career operations officer who retired from 
the Central Intelligence Agency in^ i 990, said the disclosures by Me, 
Ames, a senior CIA official led directly to tbe killings. ! 

The deaths were confirmed separately by- a congressional nffiriwi 
with access to intelligence Morrnation. A QA spokesman said he 
could not confirm the deaths. 

passed bis polygraph tests CIA of- 
ficials have told Capitol HilL' 

But Mr. Ames, who earned 
$69,834 a year at mosL also lived 
weD beyond his salary in an Arling- 
ton (Virginia) neighborhood of 
doctors and lawyers — with a Jag- 
uar out front — withoal attracting 
undue suspicion. He Dew to Vene- 
zuela and Colombia without ap- 
proval to meet Russian contacts. 

Mr. Ames also managed to get 
an impressive variety of classified 
documents out of the agency and 
store them in the memory of his 
home computer, according to the 
affidavit. FBI special agents found 
documents there last October relat- 
ed to "classified CIA operations, 
classified CIA human assets, and 
identities of CIA personnel whose 
actual employment the CIA seeks 
to protect,” the affidavit said. 

In Mr. DeCon rim’s words, the 
agents who served a search warrant 
late Monday night "found a real 
pack-rat type of personality, who 
saved a lot of stuff in his computer 
and in his home." 

What finally undid Mr. Ames, 
officials said, was the fact that 
some important United Stares espi- 
onage operations aimed at the So- 
viet Union in the late 1980s were 
siopped cold. A striking and highly 
unusual string of victories by Mos- 
cow in the “spy versus spy” wars 
threw suspicion on the CIA and, in 
time, on Mr. Ames. 

Officials declined to comment 
on how serious these setbacks were. 

or whether any American agents 
were exposed or dumnated when 
Moscow halted the operations. Bra 
a government source said the leaks 
“caused us reaf problems.” 
Be ginnin g in 1985, when Mr. 
Ames was apparently recririted, to 
1991, when he was deliberately 
transferred to less sensitive work in 
counternarcotics,' wdl over half of 
the United States uneffigence pro- 
gram was devoted to prying secrets 
from the Soviet Union and its suc- 
cessor stares. 

Mr. Ames, who had a Top Secret 
clearance for his entire 31-year car 
reex, went through the agency’s, 
training program and got bis first 
overseas assignment to Ankara in 
1969, two yean after completing 
his undergraduate degree ar 
George Washington University. He 
returned to Washington m 1972 
and was assigned to New York and 
Mexico Gty from 1976 to 1983. 

Subsequently, as the chief of the 
counterintelligence branch in the 
Soviet-East European Division al 
the Operations Directorate from 
1983 to. 1985, Mr. Ames was re- 
sponsible for directing the analysis 
of Soviet mreOigioace operations 
and recruiting Soviet agents who 
would betray these operations! It 
was the latter assgnment that put 
him in frequent touch with employ- - 
ees at the Soviet Embassy in Wa4h-. 
ington, according to the affidavit. 

Many of these contacts were au- 
thorized, but investigators recently- 
discovered that “Ames scheduled 

numerous; meetings, with Soviet 
Embassy personnel which he ather 
■did not report at afi or reported 
months afterward,” the affidavit 
said. The meetings were often fol- 
lowed by “large deposits of cash, 
not explained by his -known in- 

The affidavit stated that Mr. 
Ames became a paid Soviet agent 
.in 1985,. dubbed “the year of the 

spy” by the Hwi pin mtm'nrirur afirm 

- . because so many Americans spying 
for Moscow tinned up that year.- 

- Two American citizens spying for 
the Soviet Union 1 — Ronald W. 
Pefron of c the National Security 
Agency and Edward Lee Howard, 

- a former CIA agent — were ex- 
posed k September 1985 by a Sovi- 
et defector, Vitali Yurchenko. John 
W. Walker was also arrested that 

. yearafter passing UA; Navy code 
secrets fo the Russians. - 
'; Aocordiite fo sources, Mr. Ames 
was one of tfiose wbo debriefed Mr. 

- - Yurchenko after* the senior KGB 
officer defected in September. 1985. 
After giving some information, Mr. 

. Yurchenko chang ed his mind and 
in November 1985 flcd from his 
CIA compamons at a Gedraetown 
restaurant, retnming to Moscow. 
At roughly the same time, Mr. 
Howard fied, eventually turning up 
in Russia. 

The FBI and the CIA wondered 
if Mr. Howard had been tipped off. 
Although no officials ventured a 
COTnectiou Tuesday, fo Mr. Ames’s 
work, the affidavit stated that Mr. 
Ames first deposited $9,000 in his 
• Virginia bank account in May of 
that year, the first of dozens of cash 
■ deposits he made. 

Despite llte importance of his 
work. Ml Ames’s career marked 
him as a plodding individual with a 
modest future, and thus “a perfect 
CIA employee to play the role of 
Soviet spy " accwding to a retired 
rial.'They don’t look for high fli- 
ers,” this source said. 

Also charged Tuesday was Mr. 

- Ames’s wtfe, Maria 3ef Rosario Ca- 

sas Ames, a Colombian native he 
married in 1985. • 

BOSNIA: Start Realities Remain INDIA: Bandit Queen’s Grim Tale 

Continued from Page 1 
was too small and the source too 
vague to justify defensive strikes. 

Even if it wanted to, Washington 
cannot push loo hard to spread the 
peace because it has refused to join 
the 1 5 countries that have assigned 
troops to the United Nations in the 
former Yugoslavia, although 
.American pilots deliver most of the 
relief goods to Bosnia and would 
participate ia any NATO air 

Mr. Clinton came into office 
criticizing the Bush administration 
for passivity and proclaiming a 
moral imperative to take action 
against Serbian aggression. But he 
quickly learned how complicated 
Bosnia was and had second 
thoughts, opposing ihe dispatch of 
American ground troops as part of 
a misnamed “peacekeeping” force. 

. Only when there is a comprehen- 
sive peace will the United States 
help enforce a settlement with 
troops, a commitment Secretary of 
State Warren M. Christopher re- 
stated on Monday in a meeting 
with the Bosnian prime minister, 
Haris Silajdzic. Even thm. the ad- 
ministration knows that it faces a 
brutal bank with Congress. 

Thus it has bom difficult — even 
impossible — to claim the moral 
high ground while maintaining a 

risk-free policy. Senior officials in 
countries with peacekeepers in 
Bosnia reacted with varying de- 
grees ctf frustration and bemuse- 
ment when Mr. Clinton congratu- 
lated NATO, the United Nations, 
the Russians, “and above all the 
American military _personnd and 
those from our NATO allies, whose 
courage and skill provided the mus- 
cles that made this policy work.” 

Washington's derision to stay 
out of the fray makes coordination 
on the next steps difficult, a point 
that Malcolm Rifidnd. die British 
defense secretary, underscored 
when he noted, “Britain at The mo- 
ment has in Bosnia over 2JOO men: 
Russia is to have 400, the United 
States has 15.” 

He added that those coun tries 
not contributing troops should “get 
their act together" 

On the diplomatic front, the ad- 
ministration has gone into over- 
drive in an effort to help the Bosni- 
an government identify its basic 
demands without fordng the Mus- 
lims to agree to a settlement that 
would be militarily unenforceable 
and morally unacceptable. 

The administration is struggling 
with mixed results to convince Mr. 
Silajdzic to list his country’s territo- 
rial demands. 

CooiiiRKd from Pajpl 
violent facts of BehmaL As she 
stepped from the Delhi Magis- 
trate’s Cdort that issued the release 
documents, &e embarked on ahe-- 
ro's progress. A frenzied throng 
outside the court reached out to 
touch her. Policemen with cane ba- 
tons beat back the crowd. 

Miss Devi is not the first female 
dacoit leader of Iqgendaiy status. 
But she was one of the few to sur- 
vive the bloodletting, long enou gh 
to reach prison, .and with , savvy 
enough to promote the romance 
and melodr ama that has been built 
around her. 

Now. ai 34. she seems poisoi to 
ride a new tide in politics. After 
decades in which their votes were 
marshaled to keep India's upper- •' 
caste rulers, in power, the millions 
who belong to the lower castes in 
the traditional Hindu social struc- 
ture have begun turning toward 
parties such as Mir. Yadov's m TJt- 
tar Pradesh, dial-promise a dial-, 
lenge to the caste order* 

At the bottom of the system are . 
the untouchables, contact with, 
whom is held to defile members, of ’ 
the Ingfaer castest . ..

Expresses Optimism 


By David EL Sanger - 

,Vf* York Tima Strncr '■ 

SEOUL-— fnihe most optimis- 
tic assessment yet of the tense 
standoff on the Korean. Peninsula, . 
the president of South Korea. Kim 
Young Sam. said Wednesday that 
in the last few weeks he had be- 
come “very sure that in the end 
North- Korea wflj accept the nucle- 
ar inspections" that the United. 
States and its allies have demanded 
for more than a year. 

Mr. Kim’s upbeat view, during a 
conversation at the presidential 
around from Ids tone just right 
months ago. At that time, he 
warned the -United States against 
being “led on” by North Korea and 
suggested that ^time is running 
out” because North Korea would 
be able 10 produce plutonium by 
early this year in huge ' enough 
quantities to produce weapons. 

But now, be said, after “receiving 
a lot of information about the nu- 
clear issue,” he has concluded that 
there is “no dear evidence of North 
Korea's possession of nuclear 
weapons yet.". 

[In Vienna, the Internationa! 
Atomic Energy Agency appealed to 
North Korea : to set a firm date for 
inspections by next Monday, news 
agencies ri^oned. Having received 
a promisefrrrm the North Koreans 
to admit UN inspectors, the atomic 
energy agency was waiting for visas 
from the North Koreans.] 

Mr. Kim. 66. who look office a 
year ago as South Korea’s first ci- 
vilian president in more than three 
decades, talked only of the carrots 
he was prepared to offer his Com- 
munist rivals in the North. He re- 

peatedly declined to mention the 
sticks, for fear of angering Pyong- 
yang “at a sensitive lime.” 

Mr.. Kim’s comments, and those 
of several of his rides in riceu 
weeks, make it dear ifaal; South 
Korea is far less worried about 
what kind of nuclear weapons the 
Norib may already possess than it 
is aboutkeeping up. the pressure lo 
. bring its development program toa 
slow halt. . 

A week ago. after bitterly resist- 

_Nonh»^t would2Sow*^UN 
agency to resume Twnhed inspec- 
tions— not including two suspect- 
ed waste dumps. Mr. Kim seems to 
be betting that Ids best strategy is 
to reward Pyongyang for-the first 
glimmerings of flexibility rather 
than immediately press for belter 
access. ... 

On Wednesday, for example; 
Mr. Kini said it would be “a wise 
opinion” for the United States to 
delay the deployment of Patriot 
missiles to defend the 35,000 Amer- 
ican troops here: He was referring 
to testimony in Congress on Tues- 
day by General John SbalfltashviK, 
the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of 
Staff, that, the deployment would 
likely be held because “we do 
oot want, to.grre some excuse to the 
North Koreans to derail a process.” 

Mr. Kim’s shift firm warnings to 
optimism is hardly sameihirig new 
in the effort to talk the North mu of 
a bomb. South Korean officials 
concede that they have ortea 
switched from sounding hawkish to 
sounding dovish, usually to coun- 
terweight the prevailing mood in 
Washington. •

Chinese Heap Scorn on Rights Groups 


BEUING — China has poured 
scorn on the human-rights groups 
Amnesty International and Asia 
Watch, calling their new reports on 
rights abuses biased and politicals 
mo rivaled. , 

Beijing's counterattack appar- 
ently foreshadowed the stance that 
it will take in its annual human- 
rights battle with Washington this 

President Bill Clinton has said he 
wiD extend China's most-favored- 
nation trade privileges for a year in 
June only if Beijing showed "signif- 
icant" human-rights grins. Billions 
of dollars' worth of low-tariff Chi- 
nese exports are at stake. 

The Foreign Ministry said in a 
statement Tuesday that ordinary 
fife in China had never been better 

after 15 years of market reforms 
and continued to improve as Beij- 
ing builds a modem, democratic 
legal system. 

Asia Watch and Amnesty, it ar- 
gued. had ignored such progress, 
were biased against China and re- 
sorted to confrontation in ibeir re- 
ports criticizing Bering for growing 
repression of political dissidents 
and religious believers. 

“Aria Watch always holds deep 
prejudices against China." a For- 
eign Ministry spokesman said. 

The New York-based Asia 
Watch issued a report Monday that 
it said “shows clearly that political 
repression is increasing, not de- 
creasing.” Known political arrests 
surged past 250 in 1993. it said. 

Documenting the cases of over 

1.000 prisoners of conscience. .Asia 
Watch accused Beijing of adopting 
a cynical “hostage poliiil” in which 
prisoners are bargaining chips “to 
be released at key moments for 
maximum political effect.” 

Amnesty called this month Tor 
the release of several Chinese 
Christians arrested in a crackdown 
on foreign missionaries and for the 
release of a group of Buddhist nuns 
in Tibet jailed Tor advocating inde- 
pendence from China. 

The London-based Amnesty 
also denounced new ami-evange- 
lism laws for legalizing the deten- 
tion or religious believers who w or- 
ship outside the strict bounds of the 
p any-controlled churches. 

China said the reports failed to 
note its accomplishments in feed- 
ing and housing 1.2 billion people 

— regarded by Beijing as funda- 
mental “rights’of subsistence." 

“It is with ulterior motives, and it 
is irresponsible, for Asia Wateh to 
choose this moment to publish its 
human rights report, which makes 
accusations against China.” the 
spokesman said. 

“China enjoys a stable political 
situation and economic prosperity 
and its people are content with 
their life and work.” he said. “The 
Chinese people fully enjoy all 
rights enshrined in the constitution 
and other law s. These are facts seen 
by ail” 

In Geneva. China's envoy to the 
UN Human Rights Commission. 
Zhang Yishan. accused Amnesty of 
Cokl War-era thinking at a time 
when “the world has already en- 
tered a new era.”

NAIROBI — Breaking a nearly 
two-momh public silence, Soma-

Wednesday of sowing “hysteria” 
for predicting that the withdrawal 
of U.S. combat troops from his 
country next month “will somehow 
trigger off sudden explosions of 
fighting among Somali factions.”

He said that a hospital run by the 
charily organization Doctors With- 
out Borders reported earlier 
Wednesday receiving 15 casualties, 
and that the Indian Army field hos- 
pital in Kismayo was treating six 
more seriously 'wounded victims. 

Mr. Bennett said Indian UN

were oot involved in the latest 
flare-up. pan of a running series of 
skirmishes between supporters of 
two rival warlords. General Mo-

Wm- York Tima Serrtee 

Lieutenant General Johannes

in 1934butmoved to the Luftwaffe 
two years later. In the war, he flew 
almost constantly ra RnssnuAfrica 
and Sicily, and fra ally over Germa- 
ny. • / ■ ■ 

He was decorated with nearly, 

every medal for bravery, including 
the highest order of the boa Cross.

De Klerk Is Hit by Stone 
As Crowd Drives Him Out 


KIMBERLEY. South Africa — President Frederik W. de Klerk 
was struck by a stone on Wednesday as screaming ANC supporters 
drove him from a mixed-race township during a campaign swing 
through the Northern Cape region. 

Black and mixed-nice youths shouied “De Klerk go to bell!” as 
security officials bundled him into an armored limousine and sped 
aw*ay from the Postdene township outside the mining and agricultur- 
al town of Posunasburg. 

Witnesses said the stone hit Mr. de Klerk below the left ear, 
causing him 10 flinch and rub his neck, as he tried to address a 
handful of Mack supporters of his ruling National Party over the 
shouts of African National Congress demonstrators. 

Mr. de Klerk said he was hit by "a projectile," but not hurL 

eration in Somalia. “It's clan-on- 
clan. Unosom is keeping well back 
from it." He said the UN's policy 
was not to become involved mili- 
tarily in factional feuding, but to 
try to persuade the combatants to 

Brenda Barton, a spokeswoman 
for the World Food Program, 
which has an office in Kismayo. 
said the fighting began late Tues- 
day and continued Wednesday 
morning, and at least 17 persons 
were believed dead and about 14 
wounded. Miss Barton said the 
fighting had halted the unloading 
of a food agency ship docked at 
Kismayo with 850 tons of food. 
The agency ‘5 Somali workers help- 
ing unload the cargo ran off with 
their weapons to join the fighting. 

The haiile appeared to have 
started when some of the Jess sup- 
porters of theOgadeni clan tried to 
re-enter the city. Miss Barton said 
food agency workers in Kismayo 
reported that the fighting began 
Tuesday afternoon on the city's 
outskirts and continued Wednes- 
day' in Kismayo itself, but that 
General Morgan's Ham-clan 
forces, who are in control of the 
city, appeared to have repulsed the 

General Aidid. in his morning 
press conference, made no direct 
reference to this most recent out- 
break of clan fighting in Kismayo. 
But be did allude to the continuing 
tensions there by saying dial Kis- 
mayo “is in (Hirnotl” and “on fire." 
He said the problems in Kismayo. 
where foreign troops have been 
based since December 1992. dem- 
onstrated that the mere presence of 
LIN peacekeepers was itsei/ no 
guarantee of security. 

“The departure of the foreign 
troops win have salutary rather 
than adverse effects on the search 
for peace and a negotiated political 
settlement in Somalia.” General 
Aidid said. He added that the 
“ ’prospect for peace in Somalia is 
now much belter than it was Iasi 

General Aidid has been in Nai- 
robi for most oT the last two 
months, holed up on the fifth floor 
of the five-star Serena Hotel on the 
edge of Uhuni (Freedom) Park. He 
has been mostly holding closed- 
door meetings with representatives 
of the 12 Somali poetical factions 
loosely allied against him. trying to 
forge a compromise with his bitter- 
esi enemies that would allow the 
Somalis to form a transitional gov- 
ernment before the last U-S. troops 
quit the country on March 31.

A Better Deal lor Bosnia 

American officials pronounce themselves 
delighted by the success of NATO's ultima- 
tum in ending the Serbian siege of Sarajevo. 
Lives are being saved, life is going on in a 
city whose name has become a metaphor for 
barbarism and courage. But it is early for 
rqoicing. Chiefly — but not only — the 
Serbs are still gunning down civilians else- 
where. And the wild-card effect of Russia's 
entry upon the Bosnian scene is only begin- 
ning to be understood. 

The urgent requirement is to arrange that 
none of the guns that the Serbs are removing 
from Sarajevo will murder civilians else- 
where •— that would be a monstrous act of 
bad faith. Then, NATO must promptly ap- 
ply its newly flexed power to rescue other 
embattled cities and communities. 

NATO worries -about becoming over- 
extended. Others worry about dying. The 
momentum built up by lifting the Sarajevo 
siege must be sustained. 

Washington says the NATO ultimatum 
freed Sarajevo. Moscow says its dispatch of 
peacekeepers did. Both have a point. Serbs 
needed a threat of force to relent, but they 
also needed the face-saving excuse of being 
rescued by Russian patrons. Citizens in oth- 
er besieged cities can only hope that the same 
competition saves them. 

A cease-fire is welcome for humanitarian 
considerations. But a cease-fire spreading 
across Bosnia and then hardening would nip 
the Muslim-led Bosnian government’s new 
military potential and consolidate for die 
Serbs the 72 percent of Bosnia that they 
currently control. This would be grossly un- 
fair to Muslims and would give Russia a 
large and undeserved political victory. 

The United States is right to want to help 
the Muslims, but it is having trouble decid- 
ing just how. Some days it seems mostly to 
fear that the Muslims,' offered a hand, will 
take an arm. Something better is required. 

To ease Muslim claustrophobia, the 
American government is promoting the dif- 
ficult idea of a new Muslim-Croat state or 
confederation. It remains a fact that much of 
the territory the Muslims need in order to 
create an even minimally viable Bosnia must 
come out of that swollen 72 percent that 
Serbs intend to fold into a Greater Serbia. 

The United Stales should not be working 
just on the Muslims and to have them take 
something scarcely better than the prospec- 
tive cease-fire lines. It should be working on 
Moscow to look beyond a narrow pro-Slav 
policy and to deliver the Serbs to something 
substantially closer to a fair overall peace. 


A New Russian Spy Case 

The arrest or a 31-vear CIA official and his 
wife on charges of spying for the Soviet 
Union and then Russia from 1984 right up to 
the present is bound to convey a certain 
impression that not all that much may have 
changed with the end of the Cold War. Is not 
spying a hostile activity? What advantage 
are the Russians seeking from it? 

U is conceivable that an unreconstructed 
part of the KGB bureaucracy yet maintains 
the will and the way to play the old games. It 
is no less possible that Russia spies for the 
reason that other nations, including the 
United States, spy: to avoid bong surprised 
by events that bear importantly on its inter- 
ests. For a technologically backward place 
like Russia, moreover, industrial espionage 
obviously also has its uses. 

In fact. Moscow's motives are irrelevant to 
(he charges brought against .Aldrich .Ames. 
52. who is accused of having become an 
agent of Moscow at a lime when he was 
working in counterintelligence and who 
more recently worked in counter-narcotics. 
To protect the integrity of its policy options 

and decision-making processes, the Ameri- 
can government makes a strenuous effort to 
ferret out “moles" (spies who infiltrate and 
are assimilated into an intelligence sendee), 
foreign spies and recruited agents, regardless 
of the regime they work for. The force of the 
law must be brought against Mr. Ames and 
his wife, who are said to have sold secrets for 
S1.5 million over a period of years. 

Coming at a time when the bloom of easy 
amity is off relations between the United 
Stales and the new Russia, the case is bound 
to have a certain darkening effect. 

President Bill Clinton confined himself on 
Tuesday to saying that the case was “seri- 
ous," but others may well ask why, for in- 
stance. American foreign aid should be dis- 
pensed to a country which even in a later and 
supposedly more friendly incarnation, os 
Russia, allegedly broke the rules and bought 
secrets from Americans. 

You cannot be so sophisticated and world- 
ly about spying as to ignore that your pocket 
is being picked. 


An Opportunity for Japan 

Japan is prudently deferring long-range 
plans to build new' nuclear reactors that 
would add to the world’s growing glut of 
plutonium. In the same spirit. Tokyo might 
reconsider near-term plans for reprocessing 
plutonium. Otherwise it risks contributing to 
the spread of nuclear arms in Asia and 
around the world. 

Japan hoped to turn nuclear waste into 
plutonium fuel to meet its energy needs. But 
it can assure energy independence for the 
next half-century, and save money in the 
bargain, by relying on uranium to fuel its 
power plants. Like plutonium, uranium is 
readily available. Unlike plutonium, it is not 
readily usable to build bombs. 

Japan deserves applause for delaying the 
scheduled construction of several breeder 
reactors — nuclear plants that consume ura- 
nium and plutonium and produce still more 
plutonium. Tokyo will also put off building a 
second reprocessi ng plant, which turns waste 
fuel into wca pons-usable plutonium. 

At the same lime, however. Japan is on the 
verge of activating ns new Monju breeder 
reactor. And it is about to break ground for a 
reprocessing plant at Rokkasho. Those who 

worry about the creation of still more pluto- 
nium would be happier if Tokyo revised its 
plans, running Monju as a research reactor 
and postponing Rokkasho. 

That would have a number of positive 
effects. Japan could stop shipping weapons- 
usable plutonium home from Europe, reduc- 
ing the risk of theft or diversion. It already 
has ample stockpiles to Iuel research at the 
Monju reactor. By depleting its plutonium 
stockpile, it might also ease Korean concerns 
that it plans to make nuclear arms. 

Japan could then renegotiate the contracts 
under which Britain and France reprocess its 
spent nuclear fuel. Japan's reduced need for 
plutonium would make European reprocess- 
ing plants even more unprofitable than they 
are and might persuade Britain to reverse its 
decision to start up its new THORP plant. 
Japan could instead contract with the Euro- 
peans to store its spent fuel and provide 
enriched uranium. 

Japan often sets itself as a victim of the 
nuclear age. Now it could be a hero, by 
stopping the commerce in plutonium beTore 
it gets out of control. 


Don’t Rush Back to Unesco 

The State Department recommends that 
the United Sutes wait until at least 1905 
before rejoining Une<co. the United Nations 
Educational. Scientific and Cultural Organi- 
zation. That makes, political as well as fiscal 
sense. Both Unesco and the UN system bene- 
fited from the Reagan administration's deci- 
sion to pull out a decade ago. A delay will give 
Congress a chance to determine whether the 
gross mi Ninon jgemem prompting that pullout 
has been convincingly corrected. 

Ronald Reagan's more won widespread 
applause. Washington provided one-fourth of 
the budget lor Unesco** profligate Paris- 
based bureaucracy, notorious as a patronage 
dumping ground. Unesco had also become 
synonymous with vaporous declarations that 
were hostile id Western institutions, especial- 
ly the press. Delegates from Soviet bloc and 
Third World tyrannies pushed for a "new 
world information order" in which journalists 
would become little more than cheerleaders 
for established regimes. 

One result of Mr. Reagans shock therapy 
was the election in 19S8 of Federico Mayor 
Zaragoza of Spain os director-general. He has 
cut the payroll and generally returned Unesco 

to its original mission as a promoter of literacy, 
protector of cultural monuments and champi- 
on of a freer flow of information. Yet old habits 
persist. Congress would be right to look closely 
before resuming 565 million in annual dues. 

The two strongest arguments for rejoining 
Unesco are its useful literacy programs and 
the appalling destruction of artistic treasures 
in ethnic conflicts. One of Unesoo*s successes 
was the rescue of the great temple of Abu 
Simbel from the rising waters of Egypt's As- 
wan High Dam. Unesco has since named and 
recorded 200 "heritage sites." The need for 
this register was confirmed when Croatian 
Dubrovnik wav shelled by Serbs, and more 
recently when the celebraied Muslim-built 
bridge at Mostar was destroyed by Croalians. 

Unesco' > role is m represent the world's 
cultural conscience by speaking out against the 
deliberate targeting "of cherished monuments 
— and then to restore as best it can what wars 
tear apart. As Congress evaluates Unesco's 
internal reforms before resuming full pay- 
ments. it might offer a modest interim payment 
to help Unesco cover the costs of protecting

A Bosnia Test for U.S.-Russum Entente 

W ASHINGTON —Absent as a 
factor fra - the two Woody 
yean that the Bosnian war has 
raged, American-Ritssian relations 
have suddenly become decisive in 
the Bosnian endgame. 

And vice versa. 

The U’.S.-Rusian partnership, in 
puny health in recent months, will 
now fatten or flounder in Bosnia. 
Out of the Balkans will come other 
a new direction for Washington and 
Moscow in cooperating on global 
problems or a slide back toward 
rivalry and conflict 
Diplomats abhor such stark alter- 
natives. They wiD probably apply 
their arts to see that there are other, 
less drastic outcomes beyond the 
two that I see. But I hope they don’t 
succeed. The Clinton administra- 
tion should make it dear to Boris 
Yeltsin's government that the Boris- 
Bill relationship is on the line in the 
promising new effort to get a peace 
agreement in Bosnia. 

The United Nations' bombing ul- 
timatum to the Bosnian Serbs 
around Sarajevo overshadowed Mr. 
Yeltsin's decision to get directly in- 
volved in Bosnia — the first politi- 
cal-military initiative he has taken 
beyond the former borders of the 
Soviet Union. 

The Clin ion administration must 
now get Mr. Yeltsin to clarify 
whether he has moved into the end- 
game tohdp the Bosnian Serbs con- 
solidate their gains on the ground, 
or whether Russia Is finally witting 
to join in pressuring the Serbs into 
reaching an agreement that the Bos- 
nian government will not like but 
can live with. 

What Mr. Yelian did Last week- 
end, under the pressure of the UN 
ultimatum to the Serbs, could cut 
either way. He abruptly assigned 
Russian peacekeeping troops their 
own separate battlefield role in Bos- 
nia. Determined to prevent any 
bombing, the Russians moved into 
Bosnian Serb positions as the Serbs 
pulled out their heavy artillery 
around Sarajevo. 

The immkiiaie effect was two- 
fold: The Russian interposition pro- 
vided face-saving political cover for 
the Serbs to accept the ultimatum. 
And it protected the demilitarized 
Serbian positions from being taken 
over by the resurgent Bosnian army. 

By Jim Hoagland 

If sustained, the Russian interpost-, 
ticai freezes a military situation that 
is comfortable for the Scabs and in-, 
tolerable for the Bosnian army. 

It was thus a clever short-term 
move for Moscow. But the ques- 
tions that this seemingly modest 
Russian intervention in the Balkans 
raises are far more important: Is 
Russia ready to return to its role as 
a great power? If so, how will it 
exercise its influence, which has 
been absent from the world scene 
since the August 1991 failed coup 
that led to the breakup of the Soviet 
Union four months laid? 

One of the central causes of the 
Cold War was Moscow’s narrow, 
often paranoid reading of its inter- 
ests. Leaders shaped by World War 
II and Stalin's purges at borne clung 
protectively to any remnant of pow- 
er or leverage. They established 
their "sphere of influence’’ and 
ruthlessly policed it 

The savage ethnic wars of the 
1990s have been routinely attribut- 
ed to the end of the Cold War, as if 
the end of U ^.-Soviet ideological 

and military competition somehow 
encouraged nationalist wars to 
erupt But these wars are in fact att 
occurring within the framer Soviet 
sphere of influence, It is the collapse 
of Soviet totalitarian rule in an in- 
herently unstable '‘sphere” that -has 
led to the outbreak of fighting from • 
the Balkans to Baku. 

Not comddentaDy, the summer 
of 1991 was the decisive moment of 

the breakup of both the Soviet 
Union and Yugoslavia. Absorbed 
with going out or business, the Sovi- 
ets could not or would not pot a 
restraining hand on the Serbian 
leader Slobodan Milosevic and his 
Bosnian Serb cronies, Moscow’s 
natural allies in this straggle. 

Has Mr. Yeltsin finally inter- 
vened to restrain the Serbs and to 
begin restoring a more positive 
form of Russian influence on areas 
beyond America’s global reach? Or 
will domestic pressures created by 
pro-Serbian sentiment in Russia 
compel him to put Serbian interests 
above fashioning a reasonable com- 
promise on the ground in Bosnia? 

President Yeltsin and bis diplo- 
mats should not be allowed to razz 
the answer to that question. Their 
answer will contain : vital clues 
about Russia’s future and about 
the nature of power in the post- 
Cdd War would. 

Now is the moment to aid the 
war in Bosnia. The United States 
and Russia can lead the way to- 
ward a settlement that recognizes 
that while tire Bosnian Serbs have 
won a battlefield victory, the Bos- 
nian Muslims deserve a better out- 
come than the current map Cleared 
by “ethnic cleansing." 

The world will need to keep eco- 
nomic sanctions on Serbia until a 
reasonable compromise on territo- 
ry is reached. Wealthy Muslim and 
European nations should be will- 
ing to fund Bosnia’s reconstruc- 
tion, to show the Serbs that power 
now lies in economic factors more 
than in military force. 

But acme of this will happen un- 
less Bill Clinton and Boris Yeltsin 
demonstrate that the world's two 
great powers have a common vi- 
sion of what comes next in Bosnia. 

The Washington Pool 



S INGAPORE — In a profound 
strategic shift, India Is establish- 
ing ever closer lies to the Asia-Pacific 
economic growth zone. 

A recent visit to India by Prime 
Minister Goh Chok Tong of Singa- 
pore underlined this change. The visit 
also helped- to exorcise Southeast 
Asia's fear of Indian militarism. 

India has long had its eye on the 
Pacific Century. Jawaharlal Nehru, 
the founder of modern India, wrote 
half a century ago from a British 
prison that the “Pacific is likely to 
take the place of the Atlantic as a 
future nerve center oF the world. 
Though not directly a Pacific stale. 
India will inevitably exercise an im- 
portant influence there. “ 

Today’s Indian prime minister. 
P. V. Narasimha Raa asserts that he 
is following “tire Nehru line" even as 
he casts out the statist policies widely 
associated with Nehru and India's 
stagnation for four decades. Mr. Rao 
insists that without early socialist 
planning, India would not have de- 
veloped the world's fifth biggest 
economy, a pod of three million sci- 
entists and technologists, and more 
than 200 million urban consumers. 

By pursuing a program of deregu- 
lation and market opening, Mr, Rao 
and his reformist finance minister. 
Manmohan Singh, have enabled In- 
dia to make a dramatic takeoff from 
that plateau. Inflation has fallen to 
8 percent from 20 percent a few years 
ago. Exports are rising at an annual 
rate of 20 percent. Industrial output 
especially in jewelry, textiles and 
computer software, is increasing. 
Foreign equity investment of nearly 
S 1 .3 billion since September attests to 
global confidence in India's future. 
Another indicator may be more 

By Sunanda K. Datta-Ray 

important in the long run. Tbe ability 
of the partly convertible rupee to 
hold its own against tbe dollar sug- 
gests that Indians at last have faith m 
their own economic destiny. 

The agreements Mr. Goh conclud- 
ed. including deals for a SI 56 million 
technology park in Bangalore, a $50 
million bousing estate in New Delhi 
and a cargo complex near Bombay, 
draw on Indian expertise and Singa- 
pore’s capital and experience. Indi- 
ans expea Singaporean investment 
to rise rapidly, reaching some $15 
billion within a few years. 

But New Delhi does not see the 
connection with Singapore as an end 
in itself. It is a link in a much bigger 
chain. As a result of the wheels mat 
Mr. Rao began setting in motion 
when he became prime minister in 
June 1991, India is now regularly 
discussing economic cooperation 
with the Association of South East 
Asian Nations, This is only a foot in 
the door for India. Its aim is mem- 
bership in ASEAN's postministerial 
conference. In that grouping, for- 
eign ministers and their equivalents 
from the United States, Japan, Can- 
ada, Australia, South Korea and 
other nations hold annual economic 
and political talks with their 
ASEAN counterparts. 

New Delhi also seeks to join the 
ASEAN regional security forum and 
the Asia-Pacific Economic Coopera- 
tion forum. India wants institutional 
trade and investment links with the 
world of tbe future. 

The 36 percent of Indians aged 15 
to 30 give special urgency to this 
increasing orientation toward the Pa- 
cific. Advertisements from Star TV, 

the pan-Asian broadcaster based in 
Hong Kong, shops packed with 
smuggled consumer goods, and 
networking with about 20 million ex- 
patriates around the world, have 
whetted tbe appetite of India's youn- 
ger generation. 

Seemingly every middle-class Indi- 
an familynas a son, daughter, broth- 
er, cousin or other relative in the 
United States. And it is no secret that 
tbe 800.000 Indian settlers there are 
belter educated, and earn more, than 
tbe average American. 

Tbe five institutes of technology 
set up by the government at great 
cost, and which have developed into 
centers of excellence, have almost be- 
come a nursery for American indus- 
try. Young India will take its skills 
and talents to the West, and now also 
to the EasL if Mother India does not 
provide tbe good life. 

Mr. Goh assured his hosts that 
Singapore could be their “link to the 
Asia-Pacific.*' There is irony in the 
choice of matchmaker. Singapore is 
the cultural outsider in a region that 
Hindu civilization influenced pro- 
foundly for nearly 15 centuries. 
In the ’60s, New Delhi rebuffed a 
request from Lee Kuan Yew, then 
prune minister of Singapore, for help 
in building up his country’s aimed 
forces, fearing that this might annoy 
Malaysia. Inmans thoug ht that Mr. 
Lee’s concentration, on wealth cre- 
ation came at the expense of liberal 
values. They dismissed ASEAN as an 
American conspiracy. 

In turn, ASEAN countries were 
wary of India’s close links with the 
Soviet Union and, after 1980, its 
support for a regime in Cambodia 

America’s Jobs Crisis Is Understated 

N EW YORK — The U25. gov- 
ernment has changed tbe way 
it determines the national unem- 
ployment rate, which has resulted 
in a number that is marginally high- 
er. But the supposedly improved 
method does not provide anything 
dose to an accurate picture of a 
devastating jobs crisis that is be- 
coming ever more entrenched. 

Legions of Americans who once 
felt secure iu their jobs are now 
stunned to find themselves caught 
in the undertow of long-term un- 
employment You do not hear 
much from them after that. Tbe 
jobless tend to go quietly. One day 
they are at their work station, tbe 
next day not. When enough time 
passes, they are no longer even 
counted as unemployed. 

If you take this group, which in- 
creasingly indudes middle-class and 
midttie-aged men and women, and 
link it with (he people who have been 
forced into part-time or temporary 
work, and with people who ore catt- 
ing themselves self-employed but 
are really making little or no mon- 
ey, and with the underclass of in- 
ner-city Americans who have long 
been among the permanently un- 
employed, you have a problem with 

frightening implications. 

You cannot deal effectively with 
public safety, health care reform 
and welfare reform without engag- 
ing the employment crisis. 

In November 1991, when Presi- 
dent George Bush signed a bffl ex- 
tending jobless benefits. 1.3 million 
Americans were officially designat- 
ed as long-tom unemployed, area n- 

By Bob Herbert 

mg that they had been out of work 
for six months or longer. Those 
benefits have been cut back, but 
last month the niunber of tong-term 
unemployed was 1.7 million. 

Inevitably, official unemployment 
rates are understated. The govern- 
ment is not concealing the real num- 
bers; the Bureau of Labor Statistics 
does a remarkable job of document- 
ing those who are working and those 
who are not. But the raw numbers 
get whittled down by the complex 
procedures and definitions used to 
arrive at the official statistics. 

For example, discouraged work- 
ers — ■ people who have given up 
looking for a job — arc not counted 
as unemployed. The bureau will 

readily tell you how many people fall 
into the discouraged category, but 
that number wiU not be factored into 
the offidal unemployment rate. 

And even the discouraged cate- 

craCy. Umfcr the bureau's new 
rules, a discouraged woricer who 
has not lodked fora job for a year is 
no longer considered discouraged. 
That worker falls off the statistical 
charts. There were a lot of them. 
Before the change, the bureau 
counted 1.1 million discounted 
workers. After the change, 600,000. 

There are endless examples of, 
people out of work but not counted 
as unemployed Laid -off workers 
traditionally have been considered 
unemployed, although there was a 
time when they could reasonably 

expect their jobs to return. Now 
.laid-off pretty much means fired. 
But during the survey that is used to 
determine the unemployment rate, 
laid-off workers are asked bow ac- 
tive they have been in looking for a 
job. If the answer is that they have 
amply been checking the want ads, 
they are not coanted as unemployed. 
They sure are out of work, bid offi- 
datty they are not unemployed. 

The jobs crisis is not limited to 
the unemployed. Recent statistics 
show that college-educated men in 

their 40s and 50s — ordinarily con- 
sidered an elite group at the peak of 
their earning powers — are experi- 
encing a sharp decline in wages. 

Katherine Newman, a social an- 
thropologist at Columbia Universi- 
ty, was quoted in The New York 
Times assaying: This was the first 
generation to be widely educated in 
college. They followed the recom- 
mended path, but their education 
has failed to insulate them." 

The offidal unemployment rate 
for January was 6.7 percent. The 
more we focus on it, the less we 
understand tbe extent of the pro- 
blem. A better indicator of prevail- 
ing conditions would be a statistic 
that showed the number of people 
who wanted a job bat could not 
find one. Thai number would be 
astonishingly high. 

Keith Brooks, director of the 
New York Unemployed Commit- 
tee, made the essential point: 
“Does our government recognize 

the depth of the jobs crisis in this 
mrv? I think not," 


The Hew Yarik Times. 

that was installed by a Vietnamese 
invasion force. 

The wbed has turned full drde in 
Mr. Rao's hands. His formula for 
growth hinges on two premises. First, 
security is a matter of economics 
rather than of men and aims. Second, 
an India that aspires to a role in 
ASEAN and APEC must first build 
bridges with its immediate neighbors. 

Hence, Mr. Singh’s sweeping eco- 
nomic reforms and Mr. Rao’s over- 
tures to India's old adversaries, Chi- 
na and Pakistan. A high-powered 
Chinese team was in New Delhi this 
month to discuss troop reductions 
along their border. 

Not long before that, Mr. Rao sent 
a package of six peace proposals to 
Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto of Pa- 
kistan. These included a mutual 
agreement not to be the first to use 
nuclear weapons against the other. 
Earlier, Mr. Rao had disarmed con- 
cerns about India's navy by inviting 
Australia and the United Stales, the 
principal critics, as well as Malaysia, 
Indonesia and Singapore to a series 
of joint naval exercises. 

His diplomacy was amply reward- 
ed whm Mr. Goh remarked teat as he 
came to understand India better, be 
saw that the country bad “a legiti- 
mate interest to want to have a good 
navy to be able to defend its long 
coastline.” This is exactly New Del- 
hi’s case. Just two years before, Mr. 
Goh had warned that in acquiring the 
capability to project naval power be- 
yond its shores, India should “appre- 
ciate the security concerns of its 
neighbors,” who feared for the secu- 
rity of Southeast Aria's sea lanes and 

its power eqniEbrimn. 

The wheel has also turned bade to 
India's okl rivalry with China. The 
Chinese-Indian conflict of the '60s 
led to an estrangement between India 
and the countries of Southeast Asia. 
India and China are again in compe- 
tition, tins time for investment capi- 
tal, markets and economic partners. 

Though China seems poised to 
emerge as Aria’s dominant economic 
and milirary power. Mr. Rao’s flank- 
ing strategy of establishing dose links 
to the Asa-Ptiafic region may ensure 
that, ibis time, India is not isolated.

To Contain 
War’s New 


By Cornelio Sommaruga 

The writer is president of the Inter- 

G ENEVA — Since Hiroshima, 
the presumption has been teat , 

war can get no worse; The work! has 

been spared a second nuclear war. so 
this observation has a measure or 
truth. But beneath the umbrella or 
pn riwr stalemate, war has grown 
more terrifying in all ntanntf qf w?ys 
— in iu near destruction of ovuria- 
lion in several countries, in tbe anar- 
chy that permeates so many conflicts 
ana, not least, in the growing use of 
weapons that cause immense num- 
bers of dvilian casualties, often with 
tee most terrible wounds. 

Next week, here in Geneva, the 
UN is beginning a series of meeting 
to review a I9$0 agreement with a 
most unwieldy name: The Conven- 
tion on Prohibitions or Restrictions 
on tee Use of Certain Conventional 
Weapons Which May Be Deemed to 
Be Excessively Injurious or to Have 
Indiscriminate Effects. This, like the 
biological and chemical weapons 
conventions, represents me of man- 
Irindb periodic efforts to pul a cap on 
the hbrrors of war. Unlike the chemi- 
cal weapons trea ty there arc, regretta- 
bly, no mechanisms for implement- 
ing or enforcing its provisions. It has 
(he added weakness of applying only 
to international armed conflicts. ^ 
Most wars today are civil wars. 

We in the International Commit- 
tee of the Red Cross have been re- 
viewing the convention. We held 
two seminars on the immense prob- 
lems caused by mines, one in Janu- 
ary for military experts and another 
last year for war surgeons, mine 
manufacturers, legal experts and tee 
media. We have also held sessions 
on tbe devdopmem of weapons in- 
tended to blind. 

The range of opinion in these meet- 
ings has been wide, and we have no 
pat formula for how tee convention 
should be improved. But since we 
know it may be the last chance in 10 
to 20 years to strengthen tee conven- 
tion, we betieve we should point up 
areas for serious discussion. 

The first is to give the convention 
more muscle to outlaw, or at least 

India Looks East, Belatedly Taking Nehru’s Advice 

control the use of land mines, a 

weapon teat has become more so- 
phisticated and harder to detect and 
which goes on killing and maiming 
long after a war is over. 

Mines are cheap — as little as $3 
each —and can turn whole swaths of 
tenitocy into deserted, no-go areas. 

They are made of light-weight plastic 
and are easy to lay. Often they are 
scattered Hire deadly seeds. Yet they 
explode with enough force to rip off an 
adult’s J«s or reduce a child to pulp. 

The Un estimates teal there are 85' 
□zittiafl to 100 miUioa antipersonnel 
mines buried in the soil of 62 coun- 
tries. In Cambodia, one person in 236 
>is aa amputee, to Afghanistan and ex-' 
Yugoslavia roads and Odds are infest- 
ed with mines. Twenty- three percent 
of all mine casual ties in Afghanistan in 
1991 and 1992 were chudren. Last 
year, in our African operations alone, 
mines lotted 13 Red Cross and Red 
Crescent rebel workere and injured II. 

Late last year, the U-S. government 
launched a campaign for a global 
moratorium on land-mine sales. This 
is an important initiative. We support 
it, but we would like the international 
community to go further and accept a 
world-wide ban on their use. 

If states cannot be persuaded to 
abjure tbe use of unites, at least they 
should be required to build in reliable 
self-neutralizing mechanisms so that 
mines do not go on exploding years 
after hostilities cease. 

Not far over tee horizon we foresee 
tbe development of weapons even 
more bomfic than the land mine. 

They need to be included in tee 
weapons convention. 

In particular, we are concerned 
about blinding weapons. Using hand- 
held laser rifles, these could blind a 
person up to 1 kilometer (0.6 utile) 
away. The beams are invisible and 
cannot be protected against For tee 
damage they inflict there is no cure. 

No war injury is more feared than 
blindness. Many of its victims are 
plunged into deep depression for 
years. For once, perhaps, we can out- 
law a weapon before it hits the pro- ^ 
dnetion line — if for no reason but 
self-interest Imagine what terrorist 
groups or criminal gan g* could do 
with such weapons. 

Next week we must begin tbe hard 
work of strengthening the weapons 
convention, widening its writ giving 
it enforcement teeth and. not least 
increasing beyond tee present 41 the 
number of countries teat are party to 
it If we are ever to rid mankind of the 
scourge of war, this is an important 
step on the way.

Regarding the report "Greece-Mocedo- 
ma Frontier Slams Shut” (FA 18): 

As my business brings me often to 
both Greece and tbe Forma Yugoslav 
Republic of Macedonia, or FYROM, I 
closely follow developments in tbe rela- 
tions of (he two countries. 

But 1 find this article’s choice of no- 
menclature on the subject misleading. 
The entity denominated as “Macedo- 
nia” has been recognized by six Europe- 
an Union countries and the United 
States, and has been admitted to tbe 
United Nations as the Former Yugoslav 
Republic of Macedonia. 

One cannot lightheartedly refer to 
FYROM as “Macedonia” when a Greek 
Macedonia already exists, much as one 
does not label the United Mexican 
States the “United States.” 

The four words preceding the “Mac- 
edonia” in FYROM’s till care important 
to comprehend and respect. 

A complex set of geograpte/politica] 
and linguistic definitions must be taken 
into consideration before one can write 
with an air of uncontested confidence 
that northern Greece “was split off from 
a broader Macedonian region during 
two wars early this century. 1 ' 

Such a region was never dearly de- 
fined; what is today known as FYROM 
was Vardar Banoiina, not “Macedo- 
nia,” during tbe two wars. The first time 
a “Macedonia” of any sort is mentioned 
outside the Greek context is after Tito's 
Yugoslavian melange of 1945.

Regarding “If Intervention Isn't to Be 
Decisive, Why Intervene?” (Opinion. FA

Mr. Krau thammer compares Bosnia 
to South Vietnam in saying it is weaker 
than its adversaries. But a more mean- 
ingful difference is this: While the South 
Vietnamese regime had no will to defend 
itself, the Bosnians have amply demon- 
strated dial they are capable and willing 
to do so against overwhelming odds. 

A comparison between Bosnia and 
Israel in its early days would have been 
more informative. The Israelis were will- 
ing to defend themselves but did not 
have enough weapons. They neverthe- 
less bdd out until material help arrived. 
Material help has yet to reach Bosnia.

Nor does she refer to the two attempts

Growing Up Unwanted Check Those Berets 

Regarding “Elf Angers Vatican on Ho- 
mosexuals’' (World Briefs, FA. 10): 

We know that the Vatican opposes 
birth control and abortion. It is amazing 
to me that the Vatican believes the guar- 
anteed scars of growing op unwanted 
are more damaging than tbe passible 
scats of being wanted by same-sex par- 
ents. Perhaps the numbness produced 
by thousands of years of homeless, un- 
wanted and exploited children has led 
the Vatican to believe that such a situa- 
tion is less an “aberrant deviation” tha n 
that of same-sex parents. 



Regarding the report “Reliving D-Day 
far Comrades Who Can't” (Feb. 22): 

As a former paratrooper of roughly

Fayetteville. North Carolina. 

N EW YORK — Tbe In-Home All- 
Kid Winter Olympics began here 
on the second school stttfflf day of the 
year. The opening ceremonies co n s is ted 
of eating Honey Nut Chcerios out of tbe 
box and singing along loudly to the 
Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen an- 
them from the Ren and Sumpy show. 

“You be Nancy," said the represen- 
tative of the third grade to tbe r^tre- 


sanative of the kindergarten. “I’ll be 
Tonya’s bodyguard," 

The kindergarten representative fled 
upstairs to don ha purple leotard and 
practice throwing ber arms above her 
weari and acknowledging the cheers of a 
nonexistent crowd. Her opponent was 
benched for unsportsmanlike conduct. 

Could there have been a more fortu- 
itous convergence of events than that of 
the Olympics in Lillehammer and tbe 
cursed American winter of 1994? Tbe 
people of Norway, so snowbound yet so 
-redolent always 'of good cheer, good 
complexion and great sweaters, made it 
seem bad form for Americans to carp 
about storms, mud slides, earthquakes, 
buried cars and icy sidewalks. 

Winter storm warnings existed always 
in tbe shadow of news flashes on wheth- 
er Jeff Gillooly, Tonya Harding’s forma 
husband, had sold yet another video of 
his ex-wife playing peekaboo with tbe 
top of ha clothing, a 3.0 in tbe artistic 
impression category. 

More important, as school snow day 
gave way to school snow day, the Olym- 
pics provided not only an exhibition of 
athletic prowess, sportsmanship and 
garish one-piece latex action wear, but 
an opportunity to play along hoe at 
home. Which is how the All-Kid Olym- 
pic team came to be participating in' the 
luge competition on the staircase while, 
in tbe kitchen below, the team sponsor 
read Majesty magazine, ale chocolate 
chips out of the bag and prayed for 
the snow to stop. 

Tbe luge was followed by bobsled in a 
box. speed skating in socks cm the hand- 
wood floor, and team hockey using Tup- 
perwarr as a puck. “Reebok," the com- 
petitors wrote on their foreheads with 
indelible pens, which will have to be ex- 
plained somehow to their grandmother. 

“You be Nancy,” said the represen- 
tative of the fifth grade. “I’D be Ton- 
ya’s bodyguard.” 

After he was reprimanded, tbe team 
was sent outside into the actual snow, 
where its members complained loudly 
about the cold for 15 minutes, then de- 
manded hot chocolate. 

Tbe gold medal for whining was won 
by the representative of the third grade, 
who made the sentence “No marshmal- 
lows?” stretch for nearly a fuD minuie 
with two tremolos and a conspicuous 

quaver in his voice. This broke the world 
record for a food complaint, which was 
previously held by a Russian boy who 
did not like root vegetables. 

It was the third grader’s third medal 
of the day: He had taken the silver in 
teasing tbe dog and the bronze in daw- 
dling while supposedly changing from 
his pajamas into his clothes. 

He and the fifth-grade representative, 
who appeared in recent months to have 
become tbe Torvill and Dean of bicker- 
ing by aging out of Olympic-level com- 
petition, nevertheless staged a spirited 
display of accusations related to taking 
things that belonged to the other. The 
contest was a draw and they will meet 
again at breakfast to break the tie by 
bickering about who makes the more 
annoying chewing noises. 

The representative of tbe kindergar- 
ten, peeled down to the leotard and the 
flinty skin she now wears for practice 
sessions, attempted a triple axel off the 
coffee table and, true to the spirit of the 
games, rook a resounding fall. She was 
mollified only by false assurances that 
she would someday be permitted to own 
clothing with, sequins on the bodice. 

Ha attempts to persuade the other 
competitors to join ha in ice dancing 
were ridiculed, and she was awarded a 
gpld medal in the cooties category. 

The team then sang its anthem, 
“Great Green Gobs of Greasy Grimy 
Gopher Guts.” and attempted to retire 
for the night without putting away 
the Tupperware, tbe cocoa mugs or 
the practice skin. 

They were recalled to the arena and 
then left discussing the biathlon, which 
consists of both cross-country skiing 
and guns. It was agreed that this was the 
ideal sport. Then the sponsor of the 
team sent them to their rooms with tbe 
promise that if they were not good, Jeff 
Gillooly would be by to tuck them all in.

He documents the escalating

Substantial portions of this vol- 
ume are devoted to descriptions of 
a Soldier of Fortune convention, a 
course in shooting combat pistols 
and a war-game retreat, where men 
use paint-ball guns to play at kill- 
ing one another. 

As Gibson sees it, such warrior 
fan tasies began to seep dangerous-

The same decade, he adds, also

in a McDonald's restaurant in San 
Ysidro, California, killing 21 and 
wounding 19; and Patrick Purdy, 
who used an AK-47 in a Stockton, 
Calif ornia schoolyard in 1989 to 
gun down five Southeast Asian 
children and wound 29 others.

in Central America, Oliva North's

gests, can be viewed through the 
lens of America’s “post- Vietnam 
warrior culture.'’ 

Although Gibson lays out bis ar- 
guments in energetic, readable 
prose and displays a keen repor-. 
torial eye for events he has wit- 
nessed, his overall analysis often 
feds simplistic, derivative and lack-

Is Ulcer Bacteria Linked to Cancer? 

By Lawrence K. Altman 

.V« York Tima Semen 

W ASHINGTON — After a decade 
of fierce debate and much re- 
search, the once heretical view 
that stomach ulcers are an infec- 
tion caused by a bacterium, Helicobacter pylori, 
and are curable with antimicrobial drugs, has 
prevailed. And now leading researchers are 
turning to the public health implications of H. 
pylori, including a link to stomach cancer. 

Until this view of the cause of ulcers was 
endorsed this month by an independent panel 
of medical experts convened by the National 
Institutes of Health in Bethesda. Maryland, the 
theory and benefits of antimicrobial therapy 
were still considered unproved and radical. The 
panel also urged a drastic change in standard 
ulcer therapy: the addition erf' combinations of 
antimicrobial drugs to the usual ulcer regimen. 

Since H. pylon is found only in humans, 
experts now talk about the potential elimina- 
tion of most ulcers in the United States, if not 
the world, through antimicrobials and possibly 
a vaccine. 

"No doubt, eradication will happen eventu- 
ally." said Dr. David Y. Graham, a gastroenter- 
ologist and H. pylori expert at the Veterans 
Administration Medical Center in Houston 
who is also chief of digestive diseases at Baylor 
College of Medicine. 

Nevertheless, experts are concerned that an- 
timicrobials may be prescribed improperly, cre- 
ating drug-resistant H. pylori that would spread 
widely. Already such resistance has appeared 
on a small scale. 

The precise chain of events that leads to 
stomach ulcers, and possibly cancer, is just one 
of many mysteries concerning H. pylori. 

Studies have shown that H. pylori is common 
throughout the world and that the prevalence is 
greater in developing than in developed coun- 
tries. Almost everywhere, H. pylori is more 
common among people in lower socioeconomic 
classes. But most perplexing is why so many 
people are infected with H. pylori yet relatively 
few develop ulcers and stomach cancer. 

One theory likens H. pylori to the bacterium 
that causes tuberculosis: for unknown reasons. 

a people are infected with the tubercle 
us, but the lifetime risk of developing 
tuberculosis is about 10 percent. 

So-called stomach ulcers appear in two 
places. Duodenal ulcers, which develop in the 
first part of the small intestine, are mote com- 
mon than gastric ulcers, which are in the stom- 
ach. Virtually all patients with duodenal ulcers 
have evidence of H. pylori infection, and about 
80 percent of those with gastric ulcers harbor 
the organism. 

The most convincing evidence for a causal 
association between ulcers and H. pylori infec- 
tion comes Tram significant differences in rates 

of recurrence among ulcer patients who did and 

did not receive antimicrobials. 

Among ulcer patients in whom H. pylori is 
eliminated and who do not take a drug that may 
cause gastrointestinal bleeding, like ibuprofen. 

the recurrence rate is less than 5 percent after 
two years. Dr. Graham said. 

For those who received standard therapy 
without antimicrobials — drugs to block acid 
production — and in whom H. pylori persisted, 
the recurrence rate is about 75 percent. 

Another mystery is why the incidence of 
stomach cancer has declined so drastically in 
recent decades. In the United Stales op to 
World War R. stomach cancer haded the list 
of cancer deaths in men and was third (behind 
cervix and breast) in women. Now it ranks sixth 
for both men and women. 

Studies have found that the prevalence of H. 
pylori has also sharply declined. Among 
healthy Americans younger than 30 the inci- 
dence is about 10 percent, but among those 
over 60 it approaches 60 percent. Because H. 
pylori is believed to persist in the stomach for a 
lifetime, the data suggest that infection with H. 
pylori in childhood nas declined significantly 
over recent decades. 

Perhaps as a result, ulcer rates, too. have 
declined in the United Stales in recent years. 

Many suspect that the decline in 'the H. 
pylori infections may be linked to improved 
sanitation and hygiene. 

Another theory has it that the widespread use 
of refrigerated foods has cut down on salt and 
other preservatives, which have been suggested 
to be carcinogens. But until the evidence for H. 

pylori, no one could point to a possible micro- 
bial cause. 

There still is uncertainly about how H. pylori 
is transmitted Because the bacterium can be 
found in feces, the assumption is that person- 
to-person transmission is important. But 
whether H. pylori spreads through contamina- 
tion erf food and water, and bow often, are not 
known. Experts are also intensifying efforts to 
gather stronger evidence that H. pylori plays a 
crucial role in causing stomach cancer. 

Three studies haw indicated that those in- 
fected with H. pylori had about four times 
greater risk erf developing stomach cancer. But 
other studies, which some critics say were not as 
sound methodologically, did not find that con- 

In other studies, researchers in England and 
Germany have reported startling evidence in 
more than 15 patients that a rare form of 
stomach cancer, a lymphoma known as 
MALT, virtually disappears after antimicro 
bial therapy for H. pylori. Dr. Graham said 
his team has had similar results with four 
patients in Houston. 

H. pylori apparently promotes growth of 
MALT cancer cells indirectly, a team in Lon- 
don beaded by Dr. Peter G. Isaacson has re- 
ported in The Lancet. The bacterium stimulates 
T cells in the immune system to produce sub- 
stances called cytokines, particularly one 
known as IL-2. 

I T takes years for stomach cancer to devel- 
op. Thus additional research is required to 
determine how soon an individual would 
need to take antimicrobial therapy to pre- 
vent stomach cancer. 

The proportion of stomach cancers related to 
H. pylori is not dear, but it could turn out to be 
a significant number. At most. H. pylori would 
account for 60 to 80 percent of stomach can- 
cers, Dr. Pentti Srpponea of Jorvi Hospital in 
Esbo. Finland, told the pand. 

If future studies prove a cause-and-effect 
connection, stomach cancer would be the first 
malignancy that could be prevented by treating 
a chronic bacterial infection that is a precursor 
to the tumor. Scientists have identified liver and 
bladder cancers that con be avoided if viral 
(hepatitis B) and parasitic (snail fever} infec- 
tions are prevented. 

Aspirin a Day: Better Than Apple? 

Star York Tima Service 

EW YORK —“Cheap 100- Year-Old 
Household Drug Found to Fight 
Heart Attacks, Strokes. Cancer, 
Etc." sounds like a too-gpod-io-be- 
true headline. 

But dozens of studies involving more than a 
million people have hailed such a drug. It is 
none other than ordinary aspirin, the standby 
for reducing pain, fever and inflammation. 

The findings of recent studies strongly sug- 
gest that an aspirin a day — or at least every 
other day — may be better than an apple at 
keeping the doctor away. 

Aspirin, these studies indicate, can reduce a 
person's chances of suffering a heart attack or 
stroke and of developing cancers of the colon 
and other digestive organs. 

It may also improve brain function in people 
with dementia who have suffered little strokes, 
ward off or reduce the severity of migraine 
headaches and help prevent hazardous high 
blood pressure in pregnant women. Also being 
studied are aspirin's possible roles in prevent- 
ing cataracts and averting recurrences of gall- 

And. in general these benefits accrue from 
very low doses of the drug, known chemically as 
acetylsaiicylic acid, derived from a substance in 
the bark of the willow tree that was used me- 
dicinally by the Greek physician Hippocrates in 
the 5th centory B. C. 

But aspirin did not officially enter the medi- 
cal armamentarium until the 1890s. when a 
chemist who worked Tor the Bayer Division of 3 
German pharmaceutical company developed it 
partly out of a desire to relieve his father's 
painful, crippling arthritis. Hailed as the closest 
thing to a pain-relieving panacea, aspirin soon 

became one or the world's most widely used 

when scientists in the 1960s and 1970s final- 
ly unraveled how aspirin worts chemically in 
the body, the drug assumed a whole new life. 
Aspirin was round to block the production of 
substances called prostaglandins. Among many 
other actions, prostaglandins promote the 
dumping of blood cells called platelets, a cru- 
cial step in the formation of blood dots that 
could predpiiate heart attacks and strokes. 

In a five-year study of 22.000 middle-aged 
doctors, those who took one ordinary aspirin 
tablet every other day suffered 40 percent fewer 
heart attacks than those given a look-alike 
dummy medication. A similar placebo-con- 
trolled study is now under way in women. . 

It has already been noted in a six-year study 
of 90.000 nurses that those who said they took 
one to six aspirins a week suffered 25 percent 
fewer heart attacks than nonaspirin users. 

Aspirin had previously beat found to be 
effective in treating heart attacks: when given 
within hours of an attack (the sooner the bet- 
ter), it was shown to reduce deaths by 25 
percent. And when taken regularly by heart 
attack patients, it reduced cardiovascular 
deaths by 23 percent and reduced the risk of a 
second nonfatal attack as well as nonfatal 
strokes by nearly 50 percent. 

Based "on these findings, experts have urged 
that a supply of aspirin be kept wherever a 
bean attack victim might not be able to receive 
immediate medical attention. 

The latest excitement surrounds the observa- 
tion that regular users of aspirin have reduced 
rates of cancers of the colon, rectum, stomach 
and esophagus. These cancers combined cause 
about 8 1.000 deaths a year in the United States. 


Colorectal cancer alone is the United States' 
second leading cause of cancer deaths and the 
leading cancer killer among nonsmokers. 

The most telling study to date, conducted by 
the American Cancer Society, involved more 
than 660,000 men and women whose health 
status has been monitored for a decade. 

It suggested that as aspirin use rose, the risk 
of cancer death fell: those who used aspirin 16 
or more times a month were about half as likely 
to die of colon cancer as non users. 

Looking at all four digestive system cancers 
together, cancer society researchers found a 40 
percent lower death rale among men and wom- 
en who used aspirin 16 or more times a month 
for at least one year. And the longer aspirin had 
been used, the lower the risk, they reported. 

Aspirin may also be useful in fighting cancer. 
It stimulates production of two cancer-fighting 
components of the immune system: gamma 
interferon and interleukin-2. Researchers are 
now studying its effect as an adjunct to conven- 
tional treaunenL 

Despite its long history and popularity, aspi- 
rin does have side effects that can become 
serious in some people. It increases bleeding 
tendencies and in some people causes bleeding 
in the stomach, an effect thaL can often be 
countered by using enteric-coated aspirin. 

Preventive aspirin therapy is most often rec- 
ommended for men over 40 and women over 50 
who have one or more major risk factors for 
heart disease, including smoking, a family his- 
tory of heart attack before 55. high blood pres- 
sure. unfavorable cholesterol levels, obesity or

Study Ties Ads to Teen Smoking 

By Jane E. Brody 

Netr Tork Tima Service 

EW YORK — A new study has 
linked a sharp increase in smoking 
by teenage girls in the late 1960s 
and early 1970s to soaring sales of 
widely advertised cigarettes for women. 

The study's authors say their findings pro- 
vide the strongest evidence to date that ciga- 
rette advertising, despite industry assertions 
to the contrary, lures children into starting 

The study, published this week in The 
Journal of the American Medical Associa- 
tion. showed that the sales and advertising 
drive for women’s cigarettes in the late 1960s 
and early 1970s coincided with a major in- 
crease in the numbers of teenage girls who 
took up smoking, at the same time that smok- 
ing among boys was on the decline. 

The study linked advertising campaigns for 
Virginia Slims, Silva Thins and Eve ciga- 
rettes, all of which were aimed at women, 
with striking increases in the start of smoking 
by young girls. • - . . . , 

During a six-year period from 1967 to 
1973, when sales of women's cigarettes sky- 
rocketed. there was a 1 10 percent increase in 
the rate of I2-year-old girls who started, 
smoking, a 55 percent increase among 13- 
year-olds. a 70 percent increase among 14- 
y ear-olds, a 75 percent increase among 15- 
year-olds, a 55 percent increase among 16- 

year-olds and a 35 percent increase among 
17-year-old girls. 

From the end erf World War II to 1967, 
there had been only a slight increase in the 
start of smoking by teenage girts, the authors 
noted. But in 1967, when rales of women’s 
cigarettes took off, the rate of starting to 
smoke rose sharply among gjiis younger than 
17, peaking in 1973 when rales of such ciga- 
rettes reached a record 516 billion. 

After 1973, when sales of women's ciga- 
rettes began to drop off, so did the rate of 
starting to smoke for teenage girls, the study 
found. Daring the same six-year period,-thc 
study showed, smoking initiation rates 
among boys Tram 12 through 17 declined. By 
1975, the percentage of boys and girts starting 
to smoke had evened out 

The new study, which is believed to pro- 
vide the- strongest link yet between tobacco 
advertising and smoking behavior by teen- 
agers, was based on U. S. health surveys con- 
ducted among 102,626 adults who had been 
regular smokers at some point in their lives. 

The study, directed by Dr. John P. Pierce of 
the University of California San Diego Gancer 
Center, examined when these adults took up 
smoking. It also showed that girls who did not 
go on to college were more Gkrty than coUegB- 
bound girls to start smokmg at rite time of the. 
sales peak for women's cigarettes. 

The finding runs counter to the tobacco 
industry's assertion that its marketing is not 
aimed at children and suggests that industry’s 

stated intent to discourage smoking by mi- 
nors has been ineffective at best, according to 
Nancy J. Kaufman, a nurse who wrote an 
editorial in the same issue of the journal, 
Ms. Kaufman noted that “virtually all 

rniirfcrngimriaiti onoccurshy the age of island 

with the dwriinfr in adult smokmg, “almost one 
million new smokers, 3,000 per day, of whom 
most will be children and adolescents, must be 
recruited each year to fill die void." 

- Smoking by teenagers declined by about 
one-third in the late 1970s but it bas remained 
almost constant in the last decade. Currently, 
1 9 percent of high school seniors smoke and 
more than a millio n children under 18 be- 
come regular smokers each year, according to 

the Office of Smoking and Health, a division 
of the Public Health Service. 

. Thomas Lamia, a spokesman for the To- 
bacco Institute, the industry’s lobby group, 
said that “peer pressure, not advertising, is 
what influences smoking rates." He atiribut- 
cd.the increase in smoking by young girts in 
the late 1960s to the women’s liberation 
movement, “die time when bra-buming 
- women were abandoning traditional roles.”

Sdentists rcpOTted.that they have found- 
evidence of cigart^ smoke in foetal hair, the 
first solid proof that even the offspring of 
□on-smoking mothers can be affected by pas- 
sive cigarette smoke, according to a Reuters 
report quoting Dr. Gideon Korea of the Hos- 
pital for Sick Children in Toronto. . 

Tropical Forest Cycle Seems to Quicken 

By Boyce Rensberger 

Washington Post Service 

W ASHINGTON —Trees and other 
vegetation in many of the world’s 
tropical forests appear to be grow- 
ing faster, dying sooner and bring 
replaced still faster, according to a report by 
two botanists who studied forest change since 
the 1950s. 

Scientists speculate that the cause is the so- 
called fertilizer effect of the rising concentra- 
tion of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. 

And. they say, the faster rate of “forest turn- 
over" could be making the CO, problem still 
worse by releasing some of the carbon that is 
now locked up in slower-growing trees until 
they die and rot Vegetation that grows faster 
tends to consume less CO, before reaching its 
maximum swe

hasn't really been assessed before." said Oliver L

The BiUlon-Year-Old Fossil 

NEW YORK (NYT) — The traditional view 
that life began to colonize the land onlv about 
500 million years ago has apparently Been re- 
fined by the discovery of fossils of microscopic 
life thought to be as old as 12 billion years. 

The discovery of what may be filaments of 
bacteria, or blue-green algae, was made at two 
sites in the American Southwest. At both sites, 
the discoverers reported, the carbon content of 
rock that had once been soil indicated that 
there had once been “a significant cover of 
photosymhetic organisms." 

The oldest specimens were found northeast' 
of Phoenix, Arizona. The others, dating from 
800 million years ago. were found near Death 
Valiev, California. 

Phillips of the Missouri Botanical Garden m'St 
Louis, who published the report in Science. The 
report was co-written by Ahvyn H. Gently, the 
garden’s senior curator, who dirrl m a j^ane 
crash in Ecuador last August. Gentry was widely 
regarded as perhaps the world’s most knowl- 
edgeable expert on Latin American plants.' 

Stuart Pimm, a University of Tennessee 
plant biologist, said. “This is a unique study in 
that it Jinks for the first time the changes in the 
planet's chemistry and the changes in the tropi- 
cal forests.” 

The study was done by analyzing reports 
made by botanists who repeatedly visit matted 
plots of forest and conduct the botanical equiv- 
alem of a census. They count and measure the 
trees of each species and record deaths. 

Because the chanae was seen in all parts of 
the tropical world, the Missouri botanists sus- 
pected possible causes that would act on! a 
similar scale. These indude progressively more 
extreme fluctuations in weather, adjacent de- 

forestation. other alterations in environmental 
conditions, and rising carbon dioxide levels. 

Of these, the researchers concluded CO, was 
the most likely factor. There is no controversy 
about 'the fact that levels are tiring and that the 
gas sti m u l ates growth in many plant species, 
though to different degrees. The climatic wann- 
ing that would be expected from rising CO, 
concentration is not considered a factor. The 
computer models used to project such trends 
show Utile or no warming in tropical regions. 
Instead, the forest-altering effect is thought to 
be a direct result of carbon dioxide oa plants. 
CO, is consumed in the process of photosyn-

Botanical Garden and a vigorous c ampaig ner 
against destruction of tropical forests, saiathe 
study shows that even the most remote forests 
are. already being altered by industrial civiliza- 
tion thousands of mQes away. 

The prospect of life on land from L2 billion to 
at least 800.000 years ago offers significant possi- 
bilities for the evolution of early terres tri al life. 

Tbe authors of the report published in Sci- 
ence, were Dr. Robert J. Horodyslti, a specialist 
in microfossils at Tulane University in' New 
Orleans, and Dr. L Paul Knauth, a geologist at 
Arizona State University in Taupe. 

$1 Million Offered for Test 

NEW YORK (IHT) — The Rockefeller 
Foundation has annouced aSI million prize for 
tbe development of a low-cost rapid and easy* 
to perform test* for chlamydia and gonorrhea, 
which are important contributors to disease, 

infertility and infant blindness in many devel- 
oping countries. 

Although both diseases —of which there are 

an estimated 75 million new cases every year 

are easy and moqpensrve to treat with antibiot- 
ics, they are difficult and expensive to derat, 
ana are often asymptomatic tn early stages. 

The condition for the prize, which will remain

Privatized U.K. Industry Rebounds 

By Richard W. Stevenson 

, NfW York Tune Service 

LONDON — Not too long ago. the idea 
would have been laughable: BMW. a name 
synonymous with German quality and indus- 
trial prowess, paying SI.2 biffioa to acquire 
Rover, the struggling carmaker and a name 
synonymous with British clunkers and indus- 
trial oecifmn 

But in the five and a half years since Me 
British government privatized Rover and cut 
off theMlioas of dollars in subsidies thal had 
"m***"”^ H for more than a decade, the 
company has completed a remarkable turn- 
around. Quality, design and efficiency have 
improved irtmendously. Last year it was one 
of the few European automakers io weather a 
sales slump profitably. 

Bayedsche Motoren Werke AG, which an- 
nounced last month that it was buying the 
bulk of Rover Group Ltd. from British Aero- 
space PLC said it saw great potential to 
increase Rover’s sales. 

The transformation of Rover is just one 
example of how many companies, from Brit- 
ish Airways to British Sled, were pot through 
the crucible of Britain's aggressive privatiza- 
tion program during the 1980s and have 
emerged stronger aim more nimble. 

Freed from the embrace of government 
bureaucrat^ and cut off from its financial 
support, many of the country’s biggest corpo- 
ratious have remade themselves for a world in 
which their survival depends not on subsidies 
but on satisfying customers and shareholders. 

They aim their employees have suffered 
considerable upheaval, including mass lay- 
offs. In the process, however, they have 
helped big British industries become more 
competitive internationally. 

The question of how much credit to give 
the privatization program remains hotly de- 
bated here, as is nearfy every aspect of former 

Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's legacy. 
Bui many of the companies involved have 
continued to expand sad strengthen despite a 
deep recession in Europe and Britain. 

Here are some of the most prominent ex- 

• When nearly all the world's airlines have 
been suffering losses, British Airways has 

been among the world’s most profitable for 
several years. 

• British Telecommunications, long a 
stodgy, high-rosi phone company with poor 
service, has slashed prices and improved ser- 
vice to stave off intense competition. 

• British Steel is the only big steelmaker in 
Europe that is profitable 

• BAA, which owns and operates imeraa- 
u ratal airports in Britain, has more than dou- 
bled its profit since privatization in 1 987 and 
is expanding its management sendees into the 
United States and Aria. 

• NFC, formerly National Freight Con- 
sortium, bought Allied Van Lines in the Unit- 
ed States as part of an ambitious expansion. 

• Cable & Wixekss PLC slashed the work 
force at its headquarters, pushed authority 

Many firms survived the 
Thatcher crucible lean 
and profitable. 

and responsibility ont to its operating units 
around the world and has seen its profit rise 
io an estimated S1J billion last year. 

“All these companies that were moribund 
parts of the state sector are now out compet- 
ing around the world." Lord Young, who was 
an early proponent of privatization, said. 
"It’s been incredibly important for Britain.” 

Not every privatized company has flour- 
ished or even survived. Moreover, analysts, 
economists and executives said it would be 
wrong to attribute all improvement to priva- 
tization. The move away from state owner- 
ship, they said, was important only in the 
context of gorermnent policies that had (he 
intention of deregulating industry, creating 
more competi lion and removing barriers to 
foreign trade and investment. 

Stitt, it was privatization that was the most 
visible and in many ways the most far-reach- 
ing change to sweep through British industry 
starting in the early 1980s. 

Privatization has not been uniformly suc- 
cessful Ley land Bus was privatized in 1987 
and sold to Volvo AB of Sweden ayear later. 

Last year, after 5150 million in losses. Volvo 
completed the closure of nearly aD the com- 
pany’s operations. 

Jaguar, the carmaker privatized in 1984 
and acquired by Ford Motor Co. five years 
later, continues to lose money. 

“Nationalized companies were insulated 
from the markets.” Keith Bradley, director of 
the Business P e r fotman ce Group at the Lon- 
don School of Economics, said. 

At Rover, employment fell to 42JOO in 
1988 from 157,000’in 1980. a drop or 73 
percent, as the company was prepared for 
private ownership. It now stands at 33.000. 
But quality and efficiency were improving 
dramatically, largely because erf a partnership 
with Honda Motor Co. of Japan. 

Honda, which owns 20 percent of Rover's 
carmaking operations, was clearly rankled 
when BMW moved it aside to acquire con- 
trol. As a result. Honda said this week that it 
would cut its ties to Rover. 

In addition to cutting costs, roost priva- 
tized companies hare remade their corporate 
cultures along less bureaucratic and more 
entrepreneurial lines. 

At British Steel, most of the plant dosings 
and work-force reductions took place before 
privatization. The move into the private sec- 
tor, ending the need for consultation with the 
government on big decisions, let the manage- 
ment move more quickly. 

The process has also forced companies to 
pay far more attention than before to their 
customers. British Telecom, which had be- 
come infamous for its uncaring attitude to- 
ward consumers, quickly changed its stripes 
at the time of privatization. 

Responding to widespread complaints that 
there were not enough pay phones available 
and that many were not working, the compa- 
ny added 45 percent more of them and in- 
creased the proportion of those in working 
order to 95 percent last year, from 77 percent 
in the early 1980s. 

Faced with competition for the first time 
from other providers of residential and busi- 
ness phone service, the company reduced 
rates by 27 percent from 1984 to 1993, ac- 
cording to government figures.

BAe Again Has Loss , 
Will Seek Alliances 

Compiled by Ovr Prom Dtspauha 

LONDON —British Aerospace PLC announced its third consec- 
utive annua] loss on Wednesday and said its future lay in forging 
alliances across its defense and aircraft sectors. 

. But the company rated out, at least in the short term, the merger 
with Genoal Electric Gx, the British defense contracting giant, that 
it had been exploring last year. 

“There are certainly no discusaons taking place with GEC about a 
megamexger of the businesses,” stud Dick Evans, the chief executive 
of British Aerospace. “What is inevitable is a number of horizontal 
links, not just with GEC but with other companies.” 

- British Aerospace posted a pretax loss of £237 million ($350 
mHUan) for 1993, which included a one-time charge of £308 million, 
part of which covered leasing risks in its turboprop division. The 
company had a record loss of £1.2 billion in 1992. 

Sales rose to £10.1 billion in 1993 from £9.4 billion in 1992. 

‘ Mr. Evans, the company’s chief executive, shrugged off the con- 
troversy surrounding the sale of Rover Group Ltd. to Bayeriscbe 
. Motoren Wake AG for £800 nuflioo. 

- The sale improved British Aerospace’s cash flow and, along with a 
charge taken to cover leasing risks of turboprop aircraft, stemmed 
pressure for an immediate dad in the unprofitable regional aircraft 

“Both of these are very wefl positioned for entry into joint 
. ventures,” Mr. Evans said. 

Plans for & regional jet venture with the Taiwan Aerospace Corp. 
-. reman stalled, but the door is still open for talks, be said.

age fell 19.98 points to 3.891.68, 
after dipping as low as 3.882.96

edged gainers by a ratio of 5-u>4 
on the New York Stock Exchange, 
while volume advanced to nearly 
310 million shares from 270.65 mil- 
lion Tuesday.

fates again if either inflation or 
expectations of inflation picked up. 
On Tuesday. Fed Chairman Alan 
Greenspan told Congress that

short rates are going up and bonds 
are going down in price." said Mi- 
chael Metz, chief market strategist 
at Oppenheimer & Co.

to 7 percent, “that's not a real nega- 
tive for the economy, but it could 

cause a cessation of funds into mu- 
tual funds," prompting a 15 per-

prices, he sakL

* NEW YORK— The dollar rose 
Wednesday, gaining strength from 
0n outlook for rising interest rates 
jpd rumors that the United States 
and Japan favored a drop in the 
yen's value. 

The dollar ended in New York at 
3.7288 Deutsche marks, up from 
1.7236 DM at the Wednesday 

Foreign Exchange 

close, and at 105.705 yen. up from 
J 05.545. Reports circulated thaL 
the United States and Japan had 
agreed on a level of 1 10 yen for the 
dollar, but this wjs officially de- 

The dollar also drew strength 
from a statement by Lawrence 
Lindsey, a Federal Reserve System 
governor, that the central bank 
would be inclined to raise interest 
rates if inflation accelerated or if 
there were expectations for price 

: The dollar also rose to 1.4533 
Swiss francs from 1.4495 and to 
5.8718 French francs from 5.8583. 
The pound weakened to S 1.4785 
from S 1.4790. 

Traders were keeping an eye on 
the meeting of finance officials 

from the Group of Seven industri- 
alized countries scheduled for Sat- 
urday. Finance Minister Hirohisa 
Fuji: of Japan has said his country 
would ask the G-7 to help stabilize 
the dollar-yen exchange rate at the 
meeting. The question for traders 
and investors was whether the G-7 
leaders would comply, and at what 
rate the yen might settle if they do. 

At their last meeting in Washing- 
ton in September, Treasury Secre- 
tary Lloyd Bentsen said G-7 offi- 
cials were content with the dollar's 
level against major currencies. It 
was trading around 106 yen when 
he spoke then. 

Overall, dealers said the dollar 
market remained bullish because of 
expectations short -term U.S. inter- 
est rates would be raised. This view 
was bolstered by Mr. Lindsey's 

Mr. Lindsey also said the central 
bank was not wedded to any one 
inflation gauge in formulating 
monetary policy. The Fed chair- 
man, Alan Greenspan, on Tuesday 
told Congress the Fed would close- 
ly watch gold. Mr. Lindsey said 
gold was one of several measures of 
inflation. (AFX. Blwmberg,

German Union Raises Stakes With Wave of Walkouts 

Compiled by Our Stuff From Dispatches 

FRANKFURT — IG MetalL Germany's 
largest union, staged a new wave of work stop- 
pages in Western Germany on Wednesday 
ahead of nest week’s vote on full-blown strikes 
in Lower Saxony. 

Some 130.000 workers followed the union's 
call to lay down tools for several hours, most of 
them in ihe states of Bavaria and Baden-WUrt- 
temberg. Companies affected by the strike in- 

cluded the luxury carmakers Mercedes-Benz 
AG and Bayerische Motoren Wedce AG. 

Walkouts planned for Thursday will concen- 
trate on North Rhine- Westphalia and Hesse, 
the union said. Regional union leaders in 
Frankfurt said they expected 40,000 workers to 
take part in various demonstrations and work 
stoppages. . 

IG Metall members in the northern German 

state of Lower Saxony will vote next week on 
whether to strike. With the strikes, expected u> 
start March 7, the union wants to protest em- 
ployers' demands for lower holiday bonuses 
and longer working hours. 

IG Metall is demanding pay increases and 
job guarantees for the 3.6 million people em- 
ployed in the engineering sector.

former Chairman Florio KorinL” 
Mr. Fiorini is in a Swiss jail oh

The bank also asked for the right 
to bring an independent action for

CoafUed tvOrn Staff From Dispatches 

BRUSSELS —7 Hie European Union’s car 
industry, which lost 70,000 manufacturing jobs 
in 1993, should cut costs. Increase hs presence 
overseas and build “deaner" products, the Eu- 
ropean Commission said Wednesday. 

"The European automobile industry isn’t un- 
able to compete in principle,” Industry Com- 
missioner Martin Bangemann said at a news 
conference. “It has a few weaknesses, but once 
these' have - been cleared up, it has a very rosy 

The Union will help by continuing its efforts 
.to create a angle market and providing money 

.to create a single market and providing money 
for research, vocational training ana invest- 
ments, the commission said in a repot. 

Mr. Bangemann said the commission expect- 
ed zero growth in demand in Europe in 1994, a 
forecast that would be used in negotiations with 
Japan on its car expats to Europe this year. 
The two sides are to meet Thursday in Tokyo. 

On Japanese access to the EU market, the 
commission said compromises had been 
readied on meeting market forecasts under the 
EC- Japanese accord had been reached. 

The revised export levd for 1993 of 980,000 
Japanese cars was exactly met, mid this was 
down 18.4 percent from the year before, the 
report said. Japan’s automotive trade surplus 
with the Union is lObflhon European currency 
units ($8.9 billion), it said. 

The 15.9 percent decline in the 1993 Europe- 

an Union market for cars and light commercial 
vehicles was the largest annual drop ever re- 
corded, tile report said. 

The industry is likely to lose 40.000 manufac- 
turingjobs in 1994. leaving total manufacturing 
employment at 900,000. it said. 

Sales are expected to rise to more than 15 
million units by the end of 1999. from 1 1.7 
million in 1993. Bui the industry needs to 
restructure to be more competitive, especially 
before the Union opens its market completely 
to Japanese cars at the end of 2999, the report 

The report urged manufacturers 10 establish 
a stronger manufacturing presence in growing 
markets such as Eastern Europe .'Latin .America 
and Asia. f Return, AFX ) 

“Having this major conflict right 
after that sours the atmosphere a 
little bit-“ one senior Uruguay 
Round negotiator said Wednesday. 

The United Stares already has 
begun drawing up a list of sanc- 
tions over Motorola lnc.'s failure to 
gain a significant share of Japan's 
market for cellular telephones. 

But the threat of wider retalia- 
tion loomed after Senator Max S. 
Baucus. a Montana Democrat who 
beads the Senate Finance Commit- 
tee’s trade panel, introduced legis- 
lation Tuesday to revive the so- 
called Super 301 trade law. which 
sets a timetable for sanctions on 
countries that do not open their 
markets to American goods. 

Other countries have long resent- 
ed Super 301 as a symbol of Ameri- 
ca's inclination to bypass world 
trading rules and use its economic 
clout to wrest advantages. For 
many countries, especially in Eu- 
rope. tbe main achievement of the 
Uruguay Round was its provision 
doing away with unilateral trade 
sanctions by establishing a power- 
ful World Trade Organization to 
settle disputes. 

“We would deplore" the revival 
of Super 301. Sir Leon Britian. the 
European Union's trade commis- 
sioner. has said. 

ELI officiate say U.S. demands 
for numerical targets on trade with 
Japan set a dangerous precedent 
because they would benefit only 
American companies. 

They sav the United States risks a 
backlash from its trading partners if 
it revives the measures before the 
glohal agreement is signed in Marra- 
kesh, Morocco, on April 15.

FRANKFURT — The management of the Ger-

denying press reports that it W3S shon of cash and 
had misused state aid, said Wednesday that its 
finances were sound and that it would resume 
paying a dividend in 1995. 

Board members held a press conference to de- 
nounce accusations of financial mismanagement, 
concealed state holdings in the company and a 
capital shortage. 

The monthly Manager Ma&azin said in its 
March issue that the company had misused sure 
aid intended for shipyards in the former East 
Germany and that the group's East German yards 
had been forced to pay service fees to West’Ger- 
man units. 

Friedrich Hennemann. the chairman, said gov- 
ernment subtidies had not been misused and that 

transfer payments in the Bremer Vulkan group to 
its subsidiaries had been checked regularly by 
independent monitors. 

In a separate report, the weekly Wirtschafis- 
wodie said last week that the company's diversifi- 
cation strategy had led to a capital crunch 

“These accusations go lar beyond what we 
would call acceptable." Mr. Hennemann said. “We 
were particularly hurt D\ the financing allega-

cial fooling and added that 25 percent of the 
balance-sheet total and all its fixed-asset invest- 
ment was covered by equity capital, which he put 
at 732 million Deutsche marks ($423 million). The 
group has more liquidity than short-term debt be 

While conceding that he could not rule out a loss 
of nearly 100 million DM for 1993, Mr. Henne-

In Japan , Mobile Phones for Less 

AFP Extd Sew 

TOKYO — Deregulation of Japan’s mo- 
bile telephone market, due April l, is expect- 
ed to spark a round of competition among 
local cellular telephone companies, with car- 
riers under government pressure to expand 
then use of Motorola Inc. technology. 

The changes, which will allow the purchase 
of mobile phones previously available only 
for rent, wiB begin making the devices more 
accessible to individuals, who have beer slow 
to embrace them, analysis said. 

“One of reasons the cellular telephone 
market bad such low penetration compared 
with overseas markets was a big price differ- 
ence between cellular and regular ide- 
s'' Tosbiho Sato, an analyst at UBS 
rides, said. With deregulation and the 
resulting sharp decline in user fees for mobile 
telephones, That gap will narrow," he said. 

Mr. Sato said the removal of the rental fee 
would immediately cut user costs for mobile 
phones by about one-third, and other fees are 
expected to follow quickly as competition 
heats up. 

It is still far from dear to analysts exactly 
who will be the big beneficiaries of the 
changes — telecom carriers or equipment 
suppliers — and the US. threat of sanctions 

in the cellular telephone sector has further 
complicated the outlook. 

Analysis say the Motorola standard could 
get the upper hand from deregulation be- 
cause of its simpler technology, which might 

prove attractive io increasingly cost-cou- 
srioos Japanese consumers. 

So far. Motorola's main source of support 
in its fight for a Japanese market share has 
been the UJJ. government, which has worked 
for years to open the cellular phone market to 
UJS. makers through bilateral agreements. 

The U.S. trade representative. Mickey 
Kan tor, said Feb. 15 that the United States 
would impose sanctions rat Japan within 30 
days in the cellular phone sector for violating 
a 1989 agreement lo give U.S. companies 
"comparable market access.” 

The move was prompted by a complaint by 
Motorola over Japan's failure to open dense- 
ly populated areas to its TACS technology, 
the North American standard promoted lo- 
cally mainly by the carrier DDI Corp. 

Motorola this month said Japan's dosed 
market for cellular phones bad cost the com- 
pany between S250 million and 5300 million 
a year in lost sales. 

The government says it has taken serious 
steps to encourage the private sector to intro- 

duce Motorola products, efforts Unit it says 
bare allowed Motorola to sett £250 billion 
yen ($2.35 btilionj of products in Japan. 

Analysts said the government had also 
tried lo avoid U.S. sanctions by instructing 
the carrier Nippon Idou Tsushin Corp. to 
expand its use of the TAGS format to accom- 
modate 450.000 subscribers by 1997, putting 
its TACS subscriber base at about 93 percent 
Of its NTT-formal coverage. 

But they said it was still not certain that 
Motorola itself would be in a position to take 
advantage of the deregulation, in spite of 
Washington's efforts to open the door for the 
U.S. company. 

Nippon fdou was reported Wednesday to 
have rejected a Motorola proposal that it 
order 225,001) Motorola portable telephones 
to prompt the dropping of sanctions. 

Koiduro CfcraauL axf analyst at Salomon 
Brothers, said the inevitable expansion of the 
Motorola standard would be a boon for the 
Japanese phone maker Uni den Corp. Uni- 
den, which makes aD its products overseas 
and sends the majority of its exports to the 
United States, should* be wdJ positioned to 
take advantage of an expansion of TACS-' 
based networks in Japan, he said.

emptied by Our Staff Front Dupmcka 

WELLINGTON — Fletcher 
Challenge Lid-, an energy and for- 
estry conglomerate, said Wednes- 
day that its profit had tripled in the 
six months ended in December, re- 
flecting hefty gains from asset sales 
but no growth in product sales. 

-Net profit was 492.1 million New 
Zealand dollars (USS284 million) 
in the second half of 1993. which 
was the first half of the financial 
year for Fletcher. The 
had profit of 153.5 million < 
year earlier. 

The company said its profit in- 
ducted a one-time gain of 392 mil- 
lion dollars for asset sates as well as 
a restructuring charge of 45 milli on 

Sir Ron Trotter, the company's 
chairman, said earnings were ex- 
pected to be higher in the current 
six-month period. 

Sales fell 13 percent, to 43 tril- 
lion dollars, for which the company 
cited lower world prices for paper, 
pulp and oil. 

The company, which has been 
struggling to whittle down debt left 

from a diversification spree in the 
last decade, said its debr-to-equity 
ratio had fallen to 423 percent 
from 57.4 percent a year earlier. It 
said it had sold off 4.ti billion dol- 
lars of assets over the past 18 
months to pay debts.

Taiwan’s Not-Yet-Convertible Bonds Lure Buyers 

Compiled By Our Staff From Dtyatdies 

TAIPEI — Companies are finding eager 
buyers for overseas issues of convertible 
bonds among in terna ti onal fund managers 
" eager, to tap into Taiwan’s rapidly growing 

TwdveTarwan companies have successful- 
ly issued the braids, catted Euroconvcrtfbles, 
since 1989. 

On Tuesday, Formosa Plastics Co_ one of 
Taiwan’s Largest companies, said it planned 
to sell 51.05 billion of bonds hi the country’s 
. largest overseas debt issue. At least six other 
leal companies have applied to issue Euro- 
convertibles, and several others are consider- 
ing it- . 

Foreign investors are scurrying to buy the 

bonds, issued on European markets, because 
the Taiwan equity market is virtually dosed 
to direct foreign investment 

In theory, the bonds can be exchanged for 
listed shares in the issuing company. In prac- 
tice, they cannot be convened, because the 
government has yet to produce regulations 
permitting it This is the result of rifts within 
the government over the pace and scope of 
liberalization of the financial markets. 

Industry sources remain optimistic that 
conversion will be allowed. 

“So many companies are issuing Eurocon- 
vartibtesuow, they've gm tojwss eventually," 
said Phoebe Li of Yuen Foong Yu Paper, 
which in 1989 became the first local company 
to launch a Euroconvertible. 

But there is no sign conversion will be 
allowed soon. “When the convertibility issue 
will be resolved, no one can say," said Ting 
Ko-hua. head of the fourth dwisira] at the 
Securities and Exchange Commission. 

On Tuesday, G Y. Su, spokesman for For- 
mosa Plastics, said it and its Nan Ya Plastics 
Corp. and Formosa Chemicals A Fiber Corp- 
units each planned to raise 5350 million 
through issues of overseas convertible bonds. 

The funds will help finance a petrochemi- 
cal complex valued at about $8.6 billion, the- 
largest private investment ever in Taiwan, 
Jack Pan. a chemical industry analyst with 
Jardine Fleming Securities, said. 

“They should have no problem raising the 
money," he said. ( Reuters. Bloomberg) 


TOKYO — .All Nippon Airways 
expects (he opening of a new inter- 
national airport in September to 
speed the creation of alliances with 
foreign carriers. Yoshiyuki Naka- 
machi. a company vice president, 

Many foreign airlines, such as 
British Airways and some U.S. car- 
riers. have contacted All Nippon 
for possible alliances ahead of the 
opening of the Kansai Internation- 
al Airport near Osaka, scheduled 
for SepL 4. Mr. Nakaraachi said. 

Kansai will be Japan's first 24- 
hour airport and will handle both 
international and domestic flights. 
It will give passengers from over- 
seas better access to Japanese cities 
other than Tokyo. Foreign carriers 
say a Japanese network made 
through a link with domestic coun- 
terparts will lure more passengers. 
Mr. Nakamachi said. 

The idea of using Japanese carri- 
ers to go on to other Asian destina- 
tions also attracts them, he said. 

All Nippon has the largest do- 
mestic flight network among major 
Japanese airlines.

Canon Is Set to Use U.S. Chip 

New Turk Times Service 

International Business Machines Crap, has announced that Canon Inc. 
has agreed to use the Power PC drip in future generations of personal 
computers, giving the new microchip a welcome, if limited, endorsement. 

The Japanese company is one of the few computer makers, apart from 
the three companies that jointly developed the Power PC — IBM. Apple 
Computer Inc. and Motorola Inc. — to commit itself to using the new 

The three-company Power PC effort aims to produce a family of 
microprocessors that can be used in everything from hand-held devices to 
supercomputers. But to succeed, the Power PC must over the next few 
years make a dent in Intel Corp.’s dominance of the mainstream personal 
computer market. 

Canon, best known for its cameras and copying machines, is trying to 
become a factor in the personal-computer business. A subsidiary, Canon 
Computer Systems, in Costa Mesa, California, was stoned in 1992. selling 
machines mainly through big electronics stores and other retailers.

Microunity’s designers say that 
with their own factory, they can 
gain advantages in performance 
and quality that are beyond the 
control of the so-called fabless chip 
companies — those without their 
own drip-fabrication plants, or 

Mr. Matthews, 41, has been able 
to save money, buying some of the 
latest drip-making machines for as 
ttttte as 20 cents ou the dollar from 

a large American drip maker that 
be said was anting back. He de- 
clined to identify the seller. Even 
so, tilting at a market populated by 
giants such as Intel Corp., Motor- 
ola Inc. and NEC Crap, would 
seem a quixotic quest. 

John Moussooris, 43, Microuni- 
ty’s founder and chairman, said he 
was pushing toward a type of com- 
puting that more efficiently con- 
verts analog signals such as sound 
agri video into the digital form that 
can be processed by computers. 

Mkrotmity. which has already 
been issued 18 semiconductor pat- 
ents, is attempting to break out of 
the pack of chip makers by starting 
from scratch and rethinking the 
process by which drips are node. 

In the eolaxgpd scale of a conven- 
tional drip blueprint, a dearly visi- 
ble space separates the microsayic 
components of each of the chip's 
millions of memory cells. In the 
Microunity version, that space has 
vanished. That means that each cefl 
can be smaller, faster and cheaper.

Star- Short Women’s TennisRobsthe Cradle Again 

By Robin Finn 

' ,Vf» York Tima Seruce 

NEW YORK — The promoters say defi- 
niiely. Her coach says maybe. Her father 
' says possibly. Her mother says why so 
soon. The sponsors say hurry up already. 

What the player herself says is that she 
wants to compete this August in the Virgin- 
. ia Slims or Los Angeles in Manhattan 
Beach. California, an upscale seaside haunt 
' she rarely glimpsed from Compton, Cali- 
fornia, the downscale suburb where sbe 
spent her wonder years before relocating to 
Florida at age 1 1 to begin taking in tennis 
every which way but intravenously. 

Women's tennis, which launches its un- 
tested teenage phenomenons with all the 
hoopla that once attended the christening 
of luxury liners, is about to unveil another 
one. If 13-year-old Venus Williams spies a 
queen or movie star heading her way with a 
Champagne bottle aloft, she'd better duck. 

The women's lour, temporarily sponsor- 
less and suddenly star-starved now that 
Monica Seles and Jennifer Capriati have 
. put peace of mind ahead of their marquee 

value, is crossing its fingers. With a pro- 
posed age-eligibility change taking the 
slow boat to fruition, there's still time for 
Venus, who turns 14 in June, to get in 
under the wire — and get to work. 

There hasn't been this much tension over 
the imminent arrival of a phenom since the 
tennis hierarchy tinkered with its age-eligi- 
bility rule to give Capriati, now a former 
player at 17. quick access at 13. 

Actually, Venus Williams has been sail- 
ing steadily toward the tennis limelight 
ever since her father, Richard, with an 
adman's flair for phrasing, dubbed her a 
ghetto Cinderella when she was 10. Every 
management conglomerate from IMG to 
Don King has offered to be her Prince 
Charming on the business front. And her 
preferred version of glass slippers are sup- 
plied gratis by Reebok. a company poised 
to outfit her with endorsements the instant 
sbe turns professional. 

Thai could be anytime now if one listens 
to the tournament promoters angling to 
make their venues the site of her debuL She 
hasn't competed in anything except show- 

case exhibitions in nearly three years, but 
already the arguments about where and 
when Williams breaks onto the WTA Tour 
are heating up. 

Last week, the promoters of San Diego’s 
Toshiba Tennis Classic, in the midst of 
announcing a sponsor switch from Mazda 

The debate Is already 
raging about when and 
where Venus Williams, 
the latest teen phenom, 
makes her tour debut. 

to Toshiba, failed to deny the suggestion 
that Venus Willi ams had chosen their Au- 
gust event for her launching pad. The news 
media obligingly began to herald the com- 
ing spectacle as if it were a confirmed deal. 
The promoters claimed Rick Maori, Ve- 
nus's on-again. off- again coach, did not 
quash their hopes. Macci says he did. but 
apparently was misunderstood. 

“I spoke to Richard about it,” said 
Maori, “and he said no to San Diego, and 
that if she does play it will be in Manhattan 
Beach, which is only logical since the fam- 
ily comes from near there." 

Macci said he has encouraged W illiams 
to let Venus turn professional this summer. 

“If she’s in a position to capitalize on 
endorsements at 14. sbe should take it once 
they indeed decide to let her start compet- 
ing.” Macci said. “The only reason to play 
as an amateur is if she's going to college/* 

“All I know is that Venus is ready to get 

out there and fight." he said. 

Lynne Rolley. the United States Tennis 
Association's director of coaching for 
women’s tennis and its link to the Williams 
family, is taking an opposite view. 

“My hope is that they start Venus as an 
amateur," said Roliev. "There's nothing 
wrong with playing a few tournaments and 
testing the warns to see where she stands, 
but I don't want to see a big pro debut and 
all the pressures that go with it.'' 

No doubt there will be ample fodder for 
misunderstanding as Venus Williams, who 

is taking the plunge into the women's cir- 
cuit without the benefit of any standard; 
junior seasoning, stakes oul her territory. ' 

“Venus has made the request to us that 
sbe wants to play at Manhattan Beach,” 
said Brandi Williams, the player's mother, . 
who so far has expressed only reluctance 
about the early pressures and perils inher- 
ent in her daughter's career choice. “But 
it’s all still up in the air.” 

In any case, Jerry Diamond, promoter oT 
the Manhattan Beach event, . has a wild 
card ready for Venus W illiams. Diamond 
said he is a proponent of ^limiting the num- 
ber of events a 14-year-old can play:' . . 

“But 1 don't think 14- and 13-^iar-dds 
should be shot out especially now when 
tournaments are suffering with secondary 
fields because two of the best playm are 
out," Diamond said. “Women's tennis 
doesn't have any personalities and thatV 
what sells the sport” 

Wonder if Venus Williams, who wants to 
be a player, knows she's signing on as a 
saleswoman, too? 

f Mr. Clutch’ lifts No. 21 Boston College 

The Awaaud Press 

It was two years ago that Gerrod Abram 
earned the nickname “Mr. Clutch" for making 
; three consecutive game-winning shots for 
No. 21 Boston College. 

And the senior buried a well-defensed 3- 
pointer at the buzzer Tuesday night to give the 
visiting Eagles an 80-77 victory over Pittsburgh. 


It was his third chance to give his team the 
victory in the last 33 seconds. 

"1 was fortunate the coaches believed in me." 
Abram said. “Some guys wouldn't give you 
another opportunity." 

Boston College's coach. Jim O’Brien, de- 
signed the last play for Abram, even if it wasn't 
quite what was drawn on the clipboard. 

Abram's first two chances ended with missed 
' layups after length-of-tbe-court passes. The 
first came with the Eagles f!9-7. 10-5 Big East) 
leading 77-74. Sotiris Aggelou of Pin ( 13-1 1. 7- 
' 9) tied it with a 3- pointer with 17 seconds left. 

Boston College again in bounded with a long 
pass to Abram, who missed another close shot. 
Pitt threw the boll out of bounds rat its posses- 
sion and the Eagles had the ball back with six 
seconds left. Abram went toward the right base- 
line and launched the shot over Ahmad Shareed, 

giving the Eagles their eighth victory in 10 games

A Heavyweight Offer. 
Jordan as Tide Contender 

The Associated Press 

TOTOWA. New Jersey — As if Michael Jordan did not already 
have his hands full trying to hit baseballs. 

On Tuesday, the boxing promoter Dan Duva offered Jordan a 
chance to fight the Evander Holyfidd-Michad Moorer winner for 
the heavyweight title — ami guaranteed the former National Basket- 
ball Association star and rookie Chicago White Sox outfielder $13 

“I wouldn't fight him if I had a gun,” said the 198-pound (90- 
kilogram) Jordan, referring to HoiyfieUL That's crazy.” 

This offer is not a joke;” Duva said. “We are 100 percent serious. 
It seems that Mr. Jordan loves the challenge of proving be is the best, 
regardless of the sport. I would like to offer Michael the ultimate 
individual sport c halleng e, an opportunity to fight for the heavy-, 
weight championship of the world.” 

He added: “While this idea might seem crazy, remember, in the 
'60s, Muhammad Ali and Wfli Chamberlain were dose to finalizing 
arrangements for Wilt to challeng e Ali for the world heavyweight 
championship. The deal feQ apart when Ali — not Wilt — backed 

Duva said the proposed bom would take place in November in 
Las Vegas. Alone with a guaranteed $15 million. Duva said Jordan 
could negotiate for a percentage of the gross revenue, which, the 
promoter claimed, could be worth a total of more than S25 million. 

Duva is Holyfielcfs promoter. Hotyfield and Moorer win fight 
April 22 in Las Vegas for the IBF and WBA title belts.

For Ratings Reasons, CBS 
Puts Nancy-Tonya on Ice 

Cumptkdby Our Suff Frvm Dupatdtes 

When Nancv Kerrigan and Tonya Harding foully took to the ice 
Wednesday m'the lechnkaJ program of the women’s figure skating 
at the Winter Olympics, the competition was not shown on live 
television in the United States. 


Because CBS. which paid S295 million for the US. rights to the 
I ilichamme r Gomes, and which is on course for the highest Olympic 
television ratings of all time, wanted to reserve its crown jewel for the 
prime-time audience. And its advertisers. 

“All the attention focused on that confrontation has got to be 
translated into ratings," said Rick Gentile, senior vice president of 
production for CBS Sports. Higher ratings, although he didn’t say 
so. translate into higher advertising fees. 

CBS put an embargo on the Harding and Kerrigan routines. No 
US. television outlet was able to show them until after CBS did so on 
its prime-time show, which ran from 8 P.M. to 1 1 P.M. 

Through the first 10 days. CBS has averaged a national Nielsen 
rating of neartv 26 for its prime-time telecasts. That compares with 1 
the previous record of 23.6. set by ABC at the 1980 Lake Placid 
Games, which had the U.S. hockey team’s gold-nyadal performance. 

CBS is not the only network pulling in record viewers. The Games 
are setting all-time highs all over the world, according to Michael 
Payne, marketing director for the International Olympic Committee. 

Ratings in Australia are up 50 percent, the Enrosport satellite 
channel has had a 300 percent increase in viewers, and the audience 
in France is as big as for its own Albertville Games in 1992. he said. 

But what did CBS viewers get to watch while the main attractions 
were on the ice? Among the topics scheduled: 

• A talk with H. Norman Schwarzkopf, the retired general of Gulf 
War Tame, who is working as a CBS commentator, 

• Previews of the U.S.-Fmland hockey game; 

• An interview with Kerrigan; 

• Hi ah- tech t raining —computers help athletes reach their poten*

Canada, Finland and Sweden Advance 
To S emifinals of Ice Hockey Tournament 

Czechs Fall, 3-2 

The AxsiKiaied press 

GJOVI K — Paul Kariya scored on a pow- 
er play at 5:54 or overtime to give Canada a 
3-2 victory over the Czech Republic on 
Wednesday, sending the Canadians into the 
semifinals in the ice hockey tournament. 

On Friday, the Canadians will play Fin- 
land. which beat the United States. 6-1. in 
another quarterfinal. 

Canada is aiming for its first gold medal 
in ice hockey in 42 years, having won its first 
medal — a silver — in 24 years in Albertville 
in 1992. Czechoslovakia won the bronze 
medal in 1992. 

Brian Savage forced overtime with his 
second lyinggoal of the game at 14:35 of the 
third period. 

Kariya scored just five seconds after Ro- 
man Horak was penalized for hooking Jean 
Yves Roy. Canada won the faceoff after the 
penalty. Brad Werenkn's shot from the right 
point was stopped by the Czech defenseman 
Jan Vopat's left skate.

legs of goalie Petr Briza, who had made two 
outstanding saves on close shots by Savage 
and Todd Hlushko at 4:25 of overtime. He 
stopped 21 shots. 

Germany, 3-0, 
Blanked Again 

The Associated Press 

GJOVfK — Sweden, fighting its reputa- 
tion as an Olympic hockey underachiever, 
moved into the semifinals with a 3-0 victory 
Wednesday night over Germany. 

Tommy Solo stopped 18 shots, and Swe- 
den got goals from Fredrik Stillman in the 
second period and Stefan Omskog and Mag- 
nus Svensson in a bruising third. 

The Swedes play Friday against the win- 
ner of the later game between Slovakia and 
Russia. The loser of that game faces Germa- 
ny in a consolation match Thursday. The 
other semifinal pits Finland against Canada. 

Sweden (4- 1-1 ) won the world champion- 
ships in 1991 and 1^92 and was seeded first 
in the Olympics two years ago. Bui it Iosl 3- 
I. to bronze medalist Czechoslovakia in the 
quarterfinals and ended up fifth. 

Sweden has finished better than ihird just 
twice in the Olympics, winning silver medals 
in 1928 and 1964. It took the bronze in 1980. 
:1984 and 1988.

ond lime in six games. It lost to the Czech 
Republic. 1-0. and has been ouiscor&L 17- 


Stillman gave Sweden the only goal it 
needed at 4: 14 of the first period when he 
beat goalie Helmut De Raaf with a six-meter 
{20-foot) wrist shot from the slot on a perfect 
pass from Jonas BergqvisL 
Omskog converted a pass from Mats Nas- 
htnd from the left comer, firing an 1 l-meter 
shot from straight in front of the net that De 
Raaf had trouble finding. The goalie was 
looking to his left when the soft flip beat him 
to the right at 7:42 of the third period. 

The Final goal came at 9:10. when Svens- 
son's shot from the right point went in off 
the near posL 

German defenseman Ulrich Hiemer. who 
crashed headlong into the boards near the 
'end of the first period and had to be helped 
from the rink. Germany's coach, Ludek Bu- 
•kac said later that Hiemer had been taken to 
the hospital with a dislocated shoulder. lAP.

Canada tied the game 2-2 on Savage's 
second goal of the game at 14;35 of the third 
period. Dwayne Norrb passed it to him 
while falling down and Savage shot quickly 
from 2 meters on the left side. 

Hirsch was helpless when Otakar Janecky 
stole Greg Johnson's pass to Brad Werenka 
at Canada's right point and rushed in alone. 
Hirsch came out to cut the angle, but J an- 
te ky put a couple of fakes oo him and scored 
between his pads at 1 9:34 of the first period. 

Savage lied the game at 6:40 of the second 
period. Richard Zemlicka had knocked him 
off the puck in the right comer, but Savage 
retrieved it and cut in on Briza. Defenseman 
Drahotnir Kadlec went down in the slot to 
cut off a pass to the other side, so Savage 
shot the puck undo- Briza's left pad. 

Hirsch could not do much on the Czech's 
second goal, either, as Jlri Kucera scored on 
an 8-meter drive from the right. Hirsch skat- 
ed down and cut the angle. But Kucera shot 
it through Werenka's legs and found the 
only open spot, banging the puck in off the 
far post. 

U.S. Routed, 6-1 

The Associated Press 

L1LLEHAMMER — Finland ended the 
U.S. hockey team's medal hopes and re- 
mained unbeaten in pursuit of its first Olym- 
pic gold medal with a 6-1 quarterfinal vic- 
lory Wednesday. 

Finland (6-0-0). the tournament's only 
perfect team, will meet Canada in the semifi- 
nals on Friday. The Finns, who entered the 
Olympics as seventh seeds — one spoi be- 
hind the Americans — have outscored oppo- 
nents 31-5. They had four power-play goals 
and a shorthanded score today. 

The United States ( 1-2-3) has not won an 
Olympic hockey medal since 1980, when it 
captured the gold in Lake Placid, New York. 

It is its longest stretch ever without a 
medal. It begins consolation play Thursday 
against the Czech Republic and can do no 
better than fifth place. Its only victory 
against Italy. 

Finland allowed an average of only 12.4 
shots in preliminary play; the Americans 
had 10 in the first period alone and finished 
with 28. But Janno MyQys, whose brilliant 
goaltending carried Finland to the 1988 sil- 
ver medal, was strong again. 

“In the first period, the U.SA played 
better than us." said Finland’s Sako Koivu. 
“It was our hardest period of the tourna- 

ment. A big part of the win was Janno. We 
needed those saves. After our first and sec- 
ond grwk, we relaxed and could play our 
own game." 

The U.S. team was at its bestin the fust 12 
minutes but couldn't take advantage of op- 
portunities. Ted Drury, David Sacco and 
Brian R olstoa each had open shots from 
dose range but were stopped by MyQys. 

At 12:51. Finland broke the scoreless tie 
with its first power-play goal Jere Leh tin- 
ea's shot was blocked by the defenseman 
Brett Hauer before Korvu twisted the re- 
bound past goalie Garth Snow. 

Finland scored shorthand ed at 16:08 logo 
up 2-0. Esa Residues poked the pock away 
from Craig Johnson at center ice and Mika 
Nieminen went in on a breakaway. Nie- 
min en decked Snow to the ice and flipped a 
backhander over the goal tender. 

The United States, which rallied to tie its 
first three games and almost came from 
behind to catch Sweden, again looked ready 
to rally when Sacco beat Myllys sborthan ti- 
ed 54 seconds into the second period. 

But in a 2: 16-minute span later in the 
period, Nieminen poked in his own rebound 
and Hannu Vina beat Snow with a slap shot 
on a power play for a 4-1 lead. 

Marko Kipnisov and Jaime Oijanen add- 
ed power-play goals in the third. 

Snow made 30 saves.

HAMAR — I left the Olympic 
media village Wednesday after- 
noon. walked to the shore of frozen 
Lake Mjosa, and ventured out to 
visit the ice fishermen I could bare- 
ly make out more than half a mile 

'■ It was perfect therapy for some- 
one covering the Nancy Kenigan- 
Tooya Harding saga. The fisher- 
men never said a word about figure 
skating, and while they weren't 
haring a very good day, they did 
have some small perch to show for 
their efforts.

. “Are you A1 Harding?" I asked. 

He said he was: It was Tonya’s 
father. ... 

' The last time 1 saw Mm, two 
other: reporters and I had beat on 
the bakony of Ms apartment bond- 
ing in Portland, Oregon, last 
month, trying to talk our way in- 

“1 couldn’t say anything to you 
then, and I can’t say anything to 
you now," he said politdy. 

I said drat was fine. We talked 
about fishing. 

Harding loves to ice firtr in Ida- 
ho, and used to take Tonya fishing 
when she was little. 

I suggested he walk out and see 
how the Norwegians were doing. 
He said he was planning to, but 
needed to go inside to change Ms 
shoes. He has been befriended by a 
family with a cottage on the lake 
and. came by for a few hours prior 
to Wednesday nigh* competition. 

As we looked out at the. expau- 
sive; snow-covered lake before us, I 
said that perhaps Kerrigan and 
Harding should nave practiced on 
this ice, where they would have had 
room to maneuver without worry- 
ing about running into each other.

Tuesday angered 
Frink and surprised John Bennett, 
the attorney for the U.S. Figure 
Skating Association. 

Hie association had asked that 
Gillooly appear at the hearing, 
which will consider whether Har- 
ding violated the association’s code 
of ethics by her actions surround- 
ing the Jan. 6 attack on her rival. 
Nancy Kerrigan. 

Allowing Gillooly to go to Colo 1 
rado Springs “would lend some 
sort of credence or approval of 
what Ms testimony might be,” 
Lender said. 

’ll gives the appearance that this 
court is not neutral by me sending 
somebody to testify, not in a court 
of law, not under any subpoena, 
but merely because some associa- 
tion wants to pursue its rules of 
professional conduct," the judge 

Frink said at the close of the 
court proceeding that “the court, 
far from maintaining neutrality by 
denying Mm the ability to appear at 
(Ms hearing, does the opposite." 

Gillooly has pleaded guilty to 
racketeering in connection with Ms 
role in the attack on Kenigen but is 
free on ball pending sentencing. He 
has said Harding was in on the plot 
and gave the final go-ahead — alle- 
gations Harding denies. 

“I can see no reason why this 
court should not permit him to go,” 
Frink said. “I know far more frivo- 
lous requests tbattbe state has rou- 

Bennett said he was “a little sur- 
prised” by the judges decision. 

“f don’t quite understand the 
court’s logic." he said: . 

Loader said Gillooly was free to 
testify by deposition for the Colo- 
rado hearing. Bat Bennett said that 
- would prevent Harding and her at- 
torneys from cross-examining him. 

“It’s always preferable to have 
live testimony from a witness.” 
Bennett said. "That's our prefer- 
ence. If we have io do s omething 
else, well do it.” . 

Bennett said Harding^ attorneys 
had requested an in dHSnite- delay 
of the bearing because the March 9 
date “was inconvenient” for Har- 
ding. As for die possibility the 
hearing could be moved to Port- 
land so Gillooly could testify. Ben- 
nett said, “That's something I 
hadn’t considered, and we may ad- 
dress that to the figure skating as- 

Loader noted that. Harding has 
not been charged with a crime. A 
grand jury investigating the case is 
to deliver its final report Match 21. 

Frink could benefit Cram Gilloo- 
\fs appearance at the hearing be- 
cause anything he saysthere pre- 
sumably could be used in any 
c riminal case against her. 

The fignre skating association 
panel found unanimously on Feb. 5 
that there were "reasonable 
grounds” to -believe Harding was 
involved with or knew of tire attack 
on Kerrigan. and it scheduled die 
disciplinary hearin g. The associa- 
tion could revoke Harding’s mem- 
bership, winch would disqualify 
her from ihe world championships, 
set for March 22-27 in Japan. 

GDHool/s attorney, Ron Hoevet, 
said he would give the figure skat- 
ing association results of a lie-de- 
tector tea his diem had taken if the 
association decides it h admissible 
at its bearing. Lie-detector tests are 
not admissible in Oregon oourts. 

Frink suggested that the 
judge was “barking down the 
wrong road,” Loader replied, “But 
it’s my road, Mr. Frink."

when she had won the 1.000-meier 
speed skating race to become 
America's most decorated female 
Olympic athlete, Bonnie Blair skat- 
ed around the oval at the Viking 
Ship HalL a smile on her face, a 
motstness in her eyes, and raised 
her left band, palm up. to a band of 
adoring, cheering fans. She seemed 
to be saying, “Five." for the fifth 
gold medal site has non over three 
Olympics. She might also have 
been waving goodbye, not just for 
the night, bm for all time. 

The race in which Blair's time of 
1:18.74 beat Anke Baier of Germa- 
ny by a comfortable 138 seconds 
was the Iasi that she would skate in 
the Olympics. One month short of 
her 30th birthday, she had already- 
announced that these would be her 
final Games. 

“Being able lo come to the 
Olympics, and then to win five gold 
medals and a bronze — it was 
something I definitely never 
dreamed of." she said. “Ail the 
Olympics I’ve been in have differ- 
ent meanings, but this one is a tittle 
sad. It is my last."

Japan 9 s Flying Start 
Dims Norway's Hopes 
In Nordic Combined 

The A:-inruieJ Prat 

soared virtually out of reach 

Wednesday in iLs quest fora second 
straight Olympic gold medal in the 
Nordic team event combining ski 

jumping and cross-country racing. 

“Hopeless” was the Norwegians’ 
estimate of their three-man team’s 
chances of catching the Japanese in 
the 30-kilomeier cross-country re- 
lay Thursday. Points from Wednes- 
day’s jumping give Japan a her d 
stan of 5 minute*. 7 .seconds. 

Takjjjori Kano flew 10b mctc! s 
on his first jump — an excellent 
normal-hill distance even for ath- 
letes wbo conreniraie on jumrm^ 

Then Ktmji Pgiwjra. the inJi\ .j- 
uj) Nordic combined world cha/Ti- 
pion, clinched the 5-tninute adtan- 
uge with a < H>-meicr ftcal leap 
before more than 23.000 specu- 
tors. mostly Norwegians. 

“We thought 3 minutes is gviod 
enough. Now it’s 5. so we are sure 
to win the gold." Ogi wars said after 
the Japanese team followed its fa- 
vorite formula — run up a big lead 
in thejump lo ease the way through 
the cross-country. 

The Norwegians said they would 
have a realistic chance of catching 
up only if the gap were 14 minutes 
or less. 

Switzerland will sun 7:30 be- 
hind Japan and Estonia 9:32 be- 

ver medal behind Fred Borre 
Lundberg of Norway. 

“Today, the wind conditions 
were the same for all” Ogiwarn 
said “In the individual competi- 
tion. we had bad luck." 

In conditions like Wednesday’s, 
he added, "we Japanese still have a 
big advantage over Norway." 

But Lundberg. who won the 
jumping portion on his way to the 
individual gold, disagreed about 
; t, c wind as he managed only 813 
-i.d i6i, well below his 925 and 92 
:ast week. 

“I was a bh unlucky with the 
elements.” Lundberg said, “f had a 
little wind in my back and landed 
roo soon.” 

Kono and Ogiwara both were 
members of the Japanese trio that 
won the event in 1992, giving Japan 
its first Olympic gold in 20 years. 

Ogiwara also has won five of the 
last six individual World Cup 
meets, and Kono is second in the 
World Cup standings. 

Ogiwara had wind problems in 
his jumping in the individual cam- 
petition last week, however, and 
finished fourth. Kono won the sil- 

Bjanc Engen ViL the individual 
bronze medalist, jumped 935 and 
94 for Norway, and Knut Tore 
A pci and leaped 89 and 82. 

In addition to Kono’s 100-meter 
leap in the first round, the longest 
in these Games’ individual or team 
combined competition. Masashi 
Abe leaped 92 and Ogiwara 89.5. 

In the second round, Abe 
jumped 885 and Kono soared 94 
before Ogiwara’s 96- meter leap. 

It exceeded the best leap in nor- 
mal-hill training later Wednesdav 
by the specialist jumpers — 915 by 
Andreas GoldhergcroT Austria, the 
large-hiU bronze medalist here. 

“The first jump was perfect,” 
Kono said. **l tried to imagine a 
very good jump, and f could fiv just 
the way f imagined." 

Japan’s jumping points totaled 
733.5 to 672 for Norway. 643.5 for 
Switzerland. 619 for Estonia and 
609 for Austria. 

So far in these Games. Japan has 
no golds. It* ski jumping team fell 

just short of victory Tuesday on a 
disappointing final jump that let 
Germany win that competition.

Paramygina, wbo just failed to 
make the podium in the 15 kilome- 
ter. missed two targets in the race 
Wednesday. Only four of the 69 
competitors shot cleanly.

second straight race, coating in sev- 
enth, 30 seconds behind. She bad

The biathlon combines a cross- 
country ski race with shooting abil- 
ity. In the sprint events, the com- 
petitors pass through a shooting 
range twice, shooting prone on the 
first round and then standing. Each 
missed target means one lap on tbe 
150- meter penalty loop. 

On Sunday, a Canadian televi- 
sion network report had claimed 
that targets malfunctioned during

women. Biathlon officials and ath- 
letes dismissed the allegation, and

Ricco Gross of Germany, who 
held a 5.8-second advantage over 
Tchepikov afier the final shooting 
range, slipped to second. Gross 
also shot cleanly before a roaring 
crowd at Birkeheineren Stadium. 

Tcfurpifcov's winning time was 28 
minutes, 7 seconds. That was 6 sec- 
onds ahead of Gross. 

“I've had problems with mv

Gross, who didn’t compete in the 
mm's first biathlon eveni. 

Sergei Tarasov of Russia, who 
won the 20-kilometer event Sun- 
day. finished third. 20.4 seconds 
behind the winner. 

Tarasov, who beat Germany’s 
Frank Luck by 3.4 seconds in ihe 
20 kilometer on Sunday, lost his 
chance for a double iriuinph when 
he missed one shot on the first or 
his two visits to the firing range. 

The ] 50- meter penalty circuit he 
had to ski for the missed shot was 
the difference between gold and

The promoters of electronic

convenience of clicking a key in-

read the news on your screen, you 
will need to be connected to the

tied up on the line for hours until 
you finish the comic strips. This 
means that you will feel financially 
pressured to read the publication as

you a bundle.

Waiting for Light in Prague 

By Jane Perlez 

.VeH York Timer StTvice 

P RAGUE — For readers of Eastern Euro- 
pean literature, the arrival of a new novel 
by the Czech dissident writer Ivan KJima is a 
noteworthy and anticipated event. Klima's 
“Judge on Trial." a many-layered story of a 
Communist judge who compromised his way 
through life, was hailed by Western critics 
last year as a landmark work about the men- 
tality of the apparatchiks who ran the Czech 

But the publication here of Klima's latest 
work, “Waning for Dark. Wailing for Light." 
has passed almost without notice. Reviews 
have been sparse, there are no displays in 
Prague's bookstore windows and sales clerks 
respond with blank stares when they are 
asked for a copy. Yet the novel, a look at 
Czechoslovakia before and after the end of 
Communist rule in 1 9S9. is to be published 
with considerable fanfare by Granla in Eng- 
land in August and several American pub- 
lishers are vying for iv. 

The apparent Czech indifference toward 
Klima's new work reflects what is perceived 
here as a malaise gripping the intellectual life 
of Prague despite newfound political free- 
doms. For many Czechs, this city's reputation 
abroad as the new Paris of Eastern Europe 
seems ill-founded. 

Klima. a friendly e3-y ear-old. offered his 
own explanation in a recent interview: 
“Our critics don't tike people who are well 
known abroad.” he said, benignly. As an ex- 
ample. he cited a review- of "Waiting for 
Dark, Wailing for Light” in which a Czech 
critic dismissed the novel os having been 
“written for export.” 

But there is something deeper in the cur- 
rent malaise than just the provincial taste of 
critics. Klima and others in Prague's cultural 
milieu feel that expectations Tor a burst of 
creativity when the Communist shackles 
came off were probably too high. 

The new minister of culture. Pavel Tigrid- 
who spent the Communist era in Paris as an 
opposition journalist, put it this way in Janu- 
ary at his first news conference: 

“For Americans who never, fortunately, had 
to live in unfreedom, it is difficult to imagine 
40 years of a regime that was not only totalitar- 
ian but vulgar and stupid. I don’t think that in 
40 years there was one angle idea that was 
original. People are tired. On the other hand, 
there are two or three writers who are very 
promising, so give us a chance.” 

Klima, who is philosophical about the situ- 
ation rather than disappointed, said: “People 
in theater, for example, thought they would 
pul on Ionesco and have full theaters. They 
dreamed all their lives about pulling Ionesco 
on stage and now that they could, no one 

In part, this is because many in the educat- 
ed class who are interested m 20th-century 

European playwrights either cannot afford, to 
pay the increased price of theater tickets or 
have had to sacrifice leisure time to make 
ends meet. 

“In this country, the intelligentsia are so 
underpaid they have no money to buy tickets 
and they are too busy." Klima said. “When 
they finish their official work, they have to 
earn more money. With the exception of 
lawyers, they stiU earn one-quarter as much 
as those who work with their hands." 

KJima said it was difficult for a writer to 
capture the post-Comraunisi mood in a novel

Ivan Klima: “People are tired." 

because things were changing so fast. Instead, 
he said, young creative people seem to be 
concentrating on documentaries for televi- 
sion. some of which reflect aspects of post- 
Communist life very well. “I saw a perfect 
short movie on television three or four days 
ago on racism.” he said. 

He was referring to a common antipathy 
toward Vietnamese who came here on past 
exchange programs from Communist Viet- 

As he worked on his new novel, he said, he 
was fascinated by the question of whether 
people who had been part of the old regime, 
even unhappily, would survive in the new era. 

The main character in “Waiting for Dark. 
Waiting for Light” is a cameraman for state 
television whose job was lo film the president 
installed by the Soviets after the crackdown 
in 1968. In some ways the cameraman hates 
the regime, and in order to express himself he 

privately writes film scripts. When the 1989 
revolution comes, the cameraman is pivotal 
in ensuring that the street protests are actual- 
ly shown on television. Thus, while still being 
part of the old regime, he helps bring it down. 

These people who lived a schizophrenic 
life, could they enter a normal life again?" 
Klima said. That's die question 1 was trying 
to strive." He hints that the answer seems u> 
be no.. “Readers have urid me it is a yety 
depressing ending," he said with a smile. 

Klima starts his mornings at his desk, 
where he works cm a laptop computer and 
with a large four-volume edition of a Czech 
dictionary at hantLThe study is lined floor to 
c eiling ' with books, with wall space reserved ’ 
for paintings by his daughter, Hana Klimova 
Pavla tova, who has illustrated some editions 
of Klima's works. There is also a large oil 
painting depicting the Czech writer Franz 
Kafka working as a land surveyor. The im age 
is especially m eaning ful to Klima, who was 
banned from writing in 1970; one of the 
interim jobs he found was as a surveyor. 

The shelves brim with the many editions of 
Klima's works in foreign languages as well as 
rare copies in the underground form called 

His “Judge on Trial" was first published in 
1979 in German and in a mnwriat edition of 
small bound volumes printed on airmail pa- 
per. Klima rewrote “Judge on Trial” in the 
1980s. before the Czech and English editions 
were published. 

Another valuable edition on his book- 
shelves is the sliver- thin paperback, now yel- 
lowing with age, of his Kafkaesque play, 
“The Castle," about a system that survives by 
murdering its people. The play's publication 
led to a ton on his writing at home, but also 
brought him increased attention abroad. 

Immediately after the fall of the Commu- 
nist regime in 1989, Klima at last had the 
satisfaction of seeing his novels appear in 
CZech and with large print runs. “Love and 
Garbage," which dealt with survival under a 
dictatorship, quickly sold out its first run of 
100,000 copies. 

But even with those early, impressive suc- 
cesses and Klima's growing reputation at 
home and abroad, the Czech critics were not 
particularly friendly Lo his work. 

They are used to one-level literature,” 
Klima said. They were educated in these old 
universities by Communist professors who 
taught them to look for positive heroes and 
negative heroes. They’re now looking for pos- 
itive heroes opposing the negative ones and 
they didn't find than in my books." 

He is unruffled by the smaller print run — 
only 15,000 copies —of his new book. But he 
was delighted the other day when he opened a 
letter from a reader in the United States who 
had written to say that now, after reading 
“Judge on Trial,” she understood her Czech 
husband so much better.
