Maradona Out of World Gup for 

Argentine Star 
Tests Positive 


By Ian Thomsen 

International Herald Tribune 

FOXBORO, Massachusetts — Diego 
Maradona of Argentina, the greatest and 
most notorious player of his generation, 
was suspended Thursday following the 
biggest drug scandal in the 64 year history 
of the World Cup. 

, The 33-year-old Maradona tested posi- 
tive for five types of ephedrine, a stimulant 
found in over-the-counter decongestants. 
Ephedrine is commonly used to treat 
colds, allergies and asthma. 

It was his second drug-related suspen- 
sion and almost certainly mil conclude his 
sensational 18-year career, highlighted bv 
the 1986 World Cup title. 

“It is with great sadness that we have (o 
say that Maradona is suspended and will 
no t pla y." said Joao Havelange. president 
of FIFA, the international soccer federa- 
tion. “I was always hoping that the result 
would be different. This was a very diffi- 
cult decision for us. but the medical facts 
don’t lie, and we have to accept them as the 

Maradona apparently took a cocktail of 
drugs in Older to lose 26 pounds (12 kilo- 
grains) for the World Cup finals, said Mi- 
chel d’Hooghe, a medical doctor and mem- 
ber of FIFA's executive committee. 
Maradona has had trouble controlling his 
weight since serving a 15-month suspen- 
sion for cocaine in 1991-91 

"Maradona must have taken a cocktail 
of drugs because the five identified sub- 
stances are not found in one medicine," 
said d’Hooghe, who identified the sub- 
stances as ephedrine. phenylpropanola- 
mine, pseudo-ephedrine, oonpseudo- 
ephediine and methylephedrine. 

“It is true that some of these medica- 
tions, especially nonephedrine. are often 
used in weight-reduction medicines." 
d’Hooghe said. “It would seem possible 
that Maradona may have taken these 
drugs in a bid to reduce weight leading up 
to the World Cup.” 

Maradona's use of ephedrine “was a 
strictly personal decision,” according to 
Agricol De Bianchctti. a lawyer for the 
Argentina Football Association. At a rau-

GAZA — In a dark basement shop 
splattered with ink, Moen Akeila and his 
workers were frantically silk-screening 
swathes of white cotton Thursday with the 
likeness of Yasser Arafat, head of the Pal- 
estine Liberation Organization. 

The smudgy images of Mr. Arafat were 
being sewn into flags, selling briskly for SI 
each on the streets of Gaza City as Pales- 

tinians prepared for Mr. Arafat’s return, 
now scheduled for Friday. nfter 27 years in 
exile as a guerrilla leader] and icon of the 
Palestinian national revojution. 

Mr. Akeila recalled thdraonths of delays 
and dithering. He recalled that Mr. Arafat 
had vowed not to come/to the Gaza Strip 
and Jericho until be pad received the 
promised millions of ddlars in aid to pro-,

But Mr. Akeila quukly dismissed the

For the Palestinians, Mr. Arafat's trium-

NEW YORK — Barry Diller, chairman 
of QVC Network Inc., and Laurence A

deal in which CBS would merge with QVC

The merger being discussed would put 
Mr. Diller. 52, in charge of CBS as its chief 
executive, returning him to the business in 
which he initially built his reputation. Mr. 
Tisch would remain as chairman and head 
of the executive committee. Neither could

Shares of both companies surged on the 
merger prospects, CBS closed up S47.00 at

TOKYO — For months, Japanese like 
Takao Sato have been watching their na- 
tion’s onoe-staid politics turn more and 
more unpredictable. But nothing had quite 
prepared Mr. Sato, a puWi&hingcompany 
executive, for Wednesday night's televised 
spectacle of the Social Democratic Party 
leader, Totpiichi Murayama, winning a 
p arliamentar y vote for the prime minister- 
shrp with the support of the conservative 
Liberal Democratic Party. 

Tm a person who prefers a bit of tu- 
mult in politics to stability,” said Mr. Sato. 
“Bat what is happening now is so oa- 
Japanese." When be saw the liberal Dem- 
ocrats, who governed Japan from 1955 to 


1993, return to power by backing the leftist 
. Mr. Murayama, “I felt appalled,” be said. 

Mr. Sato’s unease reflected a view modi 
in evidence here Thursday, that Japanese 
politics is becoming a little too bizarre for 
the country’s good, not to mention its 

in tpmatirtnal image. • 

Amid the bewilderment spawned by 
Wednesday night’s tangled developments, 
this much appears certain: Japan now 
faces a son of double whammy in which 
political instability continues to paralyze 
pohey-making while at the same time the 
fledgling reform movement is rolled back. 

Although hopes remain for a reformed 
political and economic system emerging 
from the confusion in the long terra, the 
prospects are growing ever murkier. 

The liberal Democrats and the Social- 
ists, for all their traditional enmity, do 
share a penchant for the old style of spe- 
cial-interest politics, and as a result, they 
are Ekciy to do as much to subvert reform 
as. they think they can get away with. 

‘Basically, this cabinet is a cabinet of 
those who favor the status quo,” noted a 
Foreign Ministry official. 

Not that the reform forces have been 
vanquished. They can find ample rays of 
hope in what is happening. 

.The Liberal Democrats have taken a 
huge gamble by supporting Mr. Mur- 
ayama for the premiership; he lades any 
government experteaaTand is widely re- 
garded as a hesitant, albeit peasant leader. 
If he provesmept, or if his leftist proclivi- 
ties cause problems between Japan and the 
United States in international matters 
such as the North Korean nuclear pro- 
gram, the Liberal Democrats stand to get a 
big share of the blame. 

Moreover, the Liberal Democrats 
looked dose to undergoing a fatal rupture 
Wednesday night — just the sort of devel- 
opment dreamed of by reformers like 
Ichiro Ozawa, the chief strategist of former 
Prime Munster Tsutomu Ha la, who has 
long sought to lure the pro-reform mem- 
bers amoqg the Liberal Democrats away 
from the party. 

The party's decision to back Mr. Mur- 
ayama caused Toshiki Kaifu. a well-liked 
former prime minister, to bolt and run for 
the job himself as the reformers’ standard- 
bearer. Supporting him were such influen- 
tial Liberal Democrats as Yasuhiro Naka- 
sone, another former premier, and former 
Foreign Minister Michio Watanabe, a ma- 
jor party faction leader. 

“The more party realignment, the more 
chaos, the better in the long term for re- 
form,” said Takashi Inoguchi, a Tokyo 
University political scientist. 

The prospects for reform may hinge on 
what the new government does. Under one 
dark scenario for the reformers, the ruling

TOKYO — Japan’s new Social Demo- 
cratic prime minister appointed a cabinet 
on Thursday in which winch most impor- 
tant positions went to members of the 
conservative Liberal Democratic Party, a 
signal that the new government might not 
make radical departures from past poli- 

The naming of the new cabinet by To- 
miidri Murayama helped quell a bit of the 
sense of panic and outrage that accompa- 
nied his election Wednesday night by an 
almost-un thinkable partnership of Social- 
ists and Liberal Democrats. 

Some of the cabinet members, in their 
introductory press conferences, issued as- 
surances that they would maintain conti- 
nuity with the policies of previous govern- 
ment^ particularly in foreign affairs. Mr.

electoral system reform that was perhaps 
the most significant accomplishment of 
the previous ruling coalition. 

A sense of relief of the business commu- 
nity, which had been aghast at the idea a 
Socialist leader, was reflected in the Tokyo 
Stock Exchange. 

When, trading opened, the market went 
into “Murayama shock,” with the Nikkei 
average quickly plunging more than 200 
pants. But by the end of the day the 
market had rebounded and closed at 
20,643.93, up 16293 But the dollar dosed 
at a new low Tor Tokyo of 98.95 yen. 

In addition to bong cheered by the news 
that the cabinet would be dominated by 
the pro-business Liberal Democrats, inves- 
tors were encouraged that the cabinet was 
formed so quickly, dispelling some fears 
that the new coalition would be marked by 
bitter infighting. 

Still, many important polities. particu-

North and South Haggling 
Over ‘Iffy* Korea Summit 

By William Branigm 

Washington Paa Serrice . 

SEOUL — When senior North Korean 
negotiators visited this bustling South Ko- 
rean capita] for the first time in the early 
1970s, one of (heir first acts was to issue a 
strong protest because there were so many 
cars on the streets. . 

It was absurd, the delegation com- 
plained, that the South Korean govern- 
ment had brought all the vehicles in the 
country to Seoul just to show off during 
the North Koreans* visit. 

According to a South Korean official 
who related this anecdote, senior North 
Koreans are more savvy about such, things 
these days. In fact, he said, they are pain- 
fully aware of just how. far the stunted 
economy of their Stalinist country has fall- 
en behind the booming, capitalist South, 
especially since the 1970s. 

But there is same skepticism here about 
whether the word has filtered up to 82- 
y ear-old Kim II Sung, the self-styled “great 
leader” of North Korea’s isolationist 
“workers’ paradise,” and whether a visit to 
Seoul might prove too much of a shock for 

The question arises after an agreement 
bc^iem North and South KoreftoS 

on leaving the matter for the two leaders to 
settle in Pyongyang. 

“For both of these exotic creatures to be 
in heat simultaneously is a miracle,” a 
diplomat said. “But whether they produce 
an offspring is a very iffy proposition ” 

One source of uncertainty is a series of 
conflicting signals from Pyongyang about 
the summit meeting and a high-level nego- 
tiating session in Geneva on July 8 with 
U.S. officials on North Korea’s nuclear 
program. Ai Geneva, the United States is 
expected to ask the North to surrender 
reactor fuel rods to a thir d country. 

In what South Korean officials took as 
an encouraging sign Tuesday,' huge propa- 
ganda loudspeakers on the northern side 
of the border stopped.using such terms as 
“traitor*' and “bandit” to refer to the 
Soath Korean president. In addition, Kim . 
D Sung was quoted as teffing a Chinese

Haifij/ F -ii Strvuv 

BUDAPEST —The Hungar- 
ian Socialist Party’s commit- 
ment to an ambitious free- mar- 
ket program is already being 
questioned by both ?i.s junior 
partner and the leader of its 
leftist labor confederation. 

The Socialists, who won a 
Landslide victory last month in 
parliamentary elections, signed 
a binding economic and politi- 
cal pact with the center-left Al- 
liance of Free Democrats that is 
the basis of the new coalition to 
lake power in mid-July. 

The pact commits' the two 
parties to a “reinforcement of 
the market economy” that de- 
pends heavily, as one Free 
Democrat put iu on “a version 
of supply-side economics'* thaL 
uses tax breaks and private in- 
vestment incentives to cure 
Hungary's economic ills. 

In the topsy-turvy economic 
world of post-Cold War East- 
ern Europe, it seems only fitting 
that the Socialists — a party of 
former Communists who now 
proclaim zeal for free-market 
values — should promise to 
complete the dismantling of the 
deficit-ridden state-run econo- 
ray that many of them helped 
construct 30 years ago. 

Led by Prime Minister-desig- 
nate Gyiila Horn, the Socialists 
have pledged to improve on the 
performance of the center-right 
government, which is leaving 
office, with a S3 billion budgel 
deficit, 20 percent inflation and 
13 .percent unemployment. 

The Socialist-Free Democrat 
pact calls for an immediate cul- 
back in government spending to 
reduce the deficit by $480 mil- 
lion; an increase in the value- 
added tax on consumer goods; 
the elimination of a 2 percent 
company turnover tax and of a 
10 percent fee on currency de- 
posits and capital gains earn- 
ings. and an end to subsidies for 
failing state enterprises. 

Commercial banks would be 
privatized or forced out of busi- 
ness. as would many of the 160 
remaining big state companies. 

This ambitious program, if 
implemented, is certain to raise 
the price of food and consumer 
goods and to wipe out the jobs 
of many state-sector employees. 
Yel during the spring election 
campaign, ihe Socialists were 
promising voters that they

would cut unemployment and 
raise pensions and wages. 

The question being asked 
here is whether the Socialists 
will continue to push for re- 
forms when the going gets 
tough and their core constituen- 
cies. such as labor unions, balk. 

Sander Nagy, the head of 
Hungary’s main labor confed- 
eration and one of 10 union 
leaders elected to Parliament on 
the Socialist ticket, said in an 
interview Tuesday that he is 
worried about some of conces- 
sions his party made in its pact 
with the Free Democrats. 

Mr. Nagy indicated that he 
and other mainstream Socialists 
differ with the party's reformist 
wing on a number of important 
issues. He questioned whether 
privatization should move 
ahead full steam and suggested 
that bankruptcy laws should be 
relaxed to extend the life of 
troubled state-run enterprises. 

Nor does it make sense, he 
said, to close failing companies 
if the result costs the govern- 
ment more in spending for so- 
cial security, unemployment 
and pension payments. 

Last month. Laszlo Befcesi. 
the Socialists' chief economist 
and finance minister-designate, 
said in an interview that it 
might be necessary to close as 
many as 50 deficit-ridden state 
enterprises, putting 100.000 to 
150.000 people out of work.

Torn between a desire to stop the wors- 
ening civil war in Yemen and yet not 
commit troops under United Nations 
command because of the mounting costs 
and complexities of peacekeeping opera- 
tions. the Security Council has approved 
the deployment of a small international 
force to monitor a cease-fire. 

A unilateral cease-fire was called by 
the government of Yemen, which is seek- 
ing to subdue rebel forces in the break- 
away area of southern Yemen. The rebels 
are concentrated near the port city of 

[The truce collapsed after five hours 
on Thursday. Reuters reported. A South- 
ern official said he ordered his forces to 
counterattack after what he called re- 
peated provocation. 

[The rival factions also signed a Rus- 
sian-mediated cease-fire on Thursday 
that was to take effect at midnight.) 

The UN force is expected to be com- 

posed of several dozen military officers, 
mainly from Jordan and Oman but with 
a few from the United States and France. 

The vote represents a small but per- 
haps significant political victory for the 
United States. 

The Clinton administration is seeking 
to maneuver the UN into nudging re- 
gional governments toward settling local 
disputes themselves without resorting jo 
international involvement, especially .in 
complicated and protracted civil wars. 

Indeed, a senior American diplomat 
called the civil war in Yemen “an impen- 
etrable mess" on Tuesday in outlining 
Washington's policy. 

In taking its action on Wednesday, the 
Security Council avoided the issue of 
putting together another observer force 
under UN command. About 70.000 UN 
peacekeepers are now deployed in politi- 
cal hotspots around the world at an an- 
nual cost of about S3 billion. 

After the vote. Madeleine K. Albright, 
the U.S. representative to the LIN. said 
Washington “is keenlv sensitive to limits 

on the financial, material and human 
resources of the United Nations." 

Before the Security Council vote, Sec- 
retary-General Butros Butros Ghali 
called the living conditions in the be- 
sieged city of Aden intolerable, with 
most of its 400.000 residents without 
electric power and water. 

The International Red Cross said it 
was sending two relief ships to Aden 
from the port of Djibouti, about 325 
kilometers (200 miles) away. The Red 
Cross said one vessel was carrying equip- 
ment to help restore the water supply 
while the other was loaded with vehicles 
and medical supplies. 

Mr. Butros Ghali reiterated his plea 
for another cease-fire — there have beed 
six since the Security Council called for a 
holt in fighting on June 1 after it resumed^ 
in earnest — and again begged both sides i 
to sit down and settle their differences. 

A major stumbling point is bow a 
cease-fire can be sustained over a period 
long enough to allow the two sides to 
work out their differences.

Angola Reports Victory Over Rebels 

LUANDA, Angola (AP) — Government troops have taken 
control of the city of Kuito after months of fierce fighting with 
UN IT A rebels, the government radio said Thursday. 

“We are pursuing the enemy in the surrounding area, and we 
can guarantee that the defensive ring around the dry will be 
widened," the radio's Kuito correspondent reported. It was not 
possible to confirm the report independently. 

Kuito, 670 kilometers (415 miles) southeast of Luanda, is a key 
central highlands city near the rebel headquarters of Huambo. 1 1 
has been under siege by UNITA, the National Union for the Total 
Independence of Angola, for 15 months.

France Tightens Drimk-Driving Law 

PARIS (AFP) — With millions of French poised to hit the 
highways for summer vacation, the transport minister has issued a 
reminder that it will be easier for the police to make drunk-driving 

As of July 1 1, the legal limit for people who drink and drive in 
Franoe is 0.7 grams of alcohol per liter of blood. That is down 
from O.S grams a liter under a bill passed in December. 

Transport and Tourism Minister Bernard Bosson said the new 
ratio means that with each meal, drivers should limit themselves to 
an aperitif and half a bottle of wine. With drunken driving blamed 
, for 40 percent of highway deaths in France, Mr. Bosson said, “the 
new restriction seems only logical" From June 1, 1 993, to Mav 3 1

Panetta Finds Out Who’s Boss 

WASHINGTON •—'Leon E. Panetta, Pres- 
ident Bill Clinton’s new chief of staff, has said 
he demanded full authority over White House 
hiring and Bring. 

That did not prevent Mr. Panetta, while 
touching TV bases, from receiving a midnight 
telephone call from his boss to warn him to 
watch what he said regarding Dee Dee Myers, 
the White House press secretary. 

An account provided by White House offi- 
cials of tha t call and others during Mr. Panet- 
ta's first hours in office does not contradict 
his claim that he is in charge. However, it 
makes it dear that the president still knows 

how to use the telephone and the chain of 
command. . 

In his first public appearance after his 
appointment was announced, Mr. Panetta 
headed to the CNN studio for an appearance 
on. “Larry King Live," where the questions 
awaiting him included one about whether he 
intended to bring in his own press secretary. 

“Obviously, I’m going to bring in some of my 
own people to- try to assist me in that effort, 
sure, Mr. Panetta replied 

Moments later, when asked directly wheth- 
er Ms. Myers might be replaced, Thomas F. 

, McLarty 3d, the ousted chief of staff, who 
appeared along with Mr. Panetta on the pro- 
gram, said it would be important to put in 
place “the righ t team for the White House at 
this time” Mr. Panetta did nothing 10 darify 
his own remark or Mr. McLarty’s, which set 
off the following drain, reaction: 

• From the west Wing of the White House, 
a press aide quickly sent word by pager to a 
colleague traveling with. Mr. Quiton.’s . party 
in New York that Mr. Panetta had suggested 
that Ms. Myers’ job was in question. 

• The news was relayed to Jeffrey Eller, a 
White House official who was acting as press 
secretary for the president's appearance at a 
Democratic fund-raiser. 

• Mr. EDer briefed Bruce Lindsey, a senior 
adviser who is Mr. CHn ton’s constant travel- 
ing companion. 

• Mr. Lindsey huddled with Harold M. 
I ekes, the deputy chief of staff who had come 
to New York for the fund-raiser.

LOS ANGELES — A bloodstained 
glove was found outside O J. Simpson's 
home, resembling one found at the scene 
where his former wife and a friend of 
hers were killed, court documents indi- 
cated Thursday. 

- At a hearing on motions in the case, 
attorneys unveiled a list of more than 
100 pieces of evidence, from blood and 
hairs to leather gloves and a cigarette 
bull. And police officers on Thursday 
searched a vacant lot not far from Mr. 
Simpson's Los Angles home for more 

At the hearing, prosecutors and Mr. 
Simpson’s attorneys clashed over how 
many of Mr. Simpson's hairs should be 
provided as evidence in the June 12 
slayings of Nicole Brown Simpson, 35, 
and her friend, Ronald Goldman, 25. 

Judge Kathleen Kennedy-PoweB of 
the Municipal Court ordered that Mr. 
Simpson provide up to 10 hairs for tests 
to see whether they match hair found 
near the bodies. Deputy District Attor- 
ney Marcia Clark sought a hundred or 
so,' saying several should be tested from 
each area of his head. Mr. Simpson's 
attorney asked that only one strand be 

A possibly more significant dispute

Big Boost 
In Congress 
For Space 

By Erie Pianin 

Washington Post Service 

House of Representatives has 
voted overwhelmingly to con- 
tinue financing the S28 billion 
space station project bowing to 
an intense lobbying effort by 

the Clin ton adminis tration and 

pleas from House members to 
preserve tens of thousands of 
aerospace industry jobs. 

The once seemingly doomed 
project — it barely survivedlast 
year by a single vote — was 
approved, 27B to 155, Wednes- 
day after the White House and 
the National Aeronautics and 
Space Administration officials 
waged a vigorous six-month 
campaign to turn the tide. 

Vice President A1 Gore said 
the strong vote “dears the way 
for a new era of space explora- 
tion and cooperation with our 
international partners, includ- 
ing Russia.” 

Critics, led by two first-ierm 
representatives, Timothy J. 
Roemer, Democrat of Indiana, 
and Dick Zimm er, Republican 
of New Jersey, dismissed the 
space station project as “bad 
science.” They also tennod it an 
“enormous parasite” on financ- 

tbey went there to inform him of his 
former wife’s death. Mr. Simpson was 
not home at the time. 

Among the evidence detailed Thurs- 
day were what were described as red 
stains on Mr. Simpson's driveway, on a 
nearby curb, in the master bedroom and 
bathroom, as well as numerous stains on 
Mr. Simpson's Ford Bronco — on the 
driver’s door, instrument panel, driver- 
side floor, driver's seat and steering 

A police affidavit separately referred 
10 “blood droplets” lead in g from the 
Bronco to Mr. Simpson’s front door. 

“During the securing of the residence, 
a man’s leather glove, containing human 
blood, was also observed on the south 
side of the residence. This glove closely 
resembled a brown leather glove located 
at the crime scene at the feet" or Mr. 
Goldman, the affidavit said- 

Police officers, meanwhile, conducted 

an investigation at a vacant lot in Brent- 
wood not far from Mr. Simpson's home. 
The police have been looking for the 
weapon used in the slayings. It is be- 
lieved to be a 15-inch (40-centimeter) 
serrated knife. 

The court hearing on various motions 
dealt mostly with pieces of evidence and 
whether they could be split so that both 
prosecutors and defense could lest them 
independently. A preliminary hearing 
scheduled to begin Thursday, at which 
Judge Kennedy-Powell would begin 
considering whether to hold Mr. Simp- 
son for trial, did not start because the 
motions were discussed instead.

Angeles Police Department's crime lab. 
She described various pieces of evidence 
and how many samples can be shared

Live Coverage Bumps the ‘Soaps’ 

The Associated Press 

NEW YORK —The major U.S. tele- 
vision networks planned to preempt 
their usual daytime fare of soap operas 
and games shows on Thursday to offer 
continuous live coverage of the prelimi- 
nary bearing in the O J. Simpson murder 

In a sign of how the case has riveted 
the public's — and the networks' — 
attention, ABC, CBS, and NBC all said 
they would have their major evening 
news presenters anchoring the coverage 

from New York. CNN also planned 
continuous coverage. 

NBC. which had planned to diride 
coverage between the hearing and the 
Wimbledon tennis tournament, an- 
nounced Wednesday that it would stay 
with the Simpson case all day. airing a 
“ hig hli g ht match” during Lhe hearing's 
lunch break. 

It will be the second Simpson drama 
to play itself out on live television: His 
night' from the police after being 
charged with murder was seen by an 
estimated 95 milli on U.S. viewers. 

She also backed up the prosecution’s 
contention that many samples of a sus- 
pect’s hair are needed for a good com- 
parison with samples of hair from a 
crime scene. She said 30 to 100 hairs are 
the scientifically accepted norm.

dence was filed Wednesday. It contend- 
ed it was improper for detectives to 
search the fenced-in grounds of Mr. 
Simpson’s estate without a warrant. 

The motion said police went there at 5 
A.M. on June 13 to tell Mr. Simpson of 
his former wife’s death, found the house 
locked and got no response from a gate 
intercom. The police goi a phone num- 
ber from a home security company that 
rang at an answering machine, the mo- 
tion stated. 

“Rather man leave a message, one of 
the detectives climbed over the 5-fooi 
wall protecting the defendant’s resi- 
dence. opened the gate and admitted the 
remaining detectives,” the motion said. 

The detecuves searched the house and 
at some point roused one of Mr. Simp- 
son's daughters, who was sleeping there. 
At 7:30 A.M. they told her that she had 
to leave so the premises could be 
searched, the motion said. 

Another guesL was detained and re- 
moved from the house, it said. 

The police eventually found out that 
Mr. Simpson was on a business trip to 
Chicago, contacted him and he agreed to 

The search warrant was not obtained 
until 10:45 A.M.. Mr. Simpson's lawyers 
stated. The lawyers argued that the law 
does not permit warrantless entries, 
even for investigation of a murder.

By Adam Clymer 

New York Times Service 

leader of the minority Republi- 
cans in the Senate, Bob Dole of 
Kansas, has moved to establish 
a strong conservative position 
on health care for himself and 
his party by marshaling broad 
Republican support for a plan 
that would widen access to in- 
surance but would not promise 
to insure all Americans. 

AH but five of the Senate's 44 
Republicans signed up as back- 
ers of the bill, giving it more 
Senate sponsors than any other 
health measure. 

The support quickly estab- 
lished Senator Dole as a force 
on the issue by adding a new 
element to a debate that so far 
has been dominated by Presi- 
dent Bill Clinton’s proposal, a 
variety of Democratic alterna- 
tives that made only limited 
changes, and a moderate pack- 
age teat did not satisfy Repub- 
lican conservatives. 

It plainly complicated the ef- 
forts of Mr. Clinton and his 
supporters to get Lhe Senate to 
back a plan guaranteeing uni- 
versal coverage that would de- 
pend on employers’ paying 
most of their workers’ health 
insurance premiums. Senator 
Dole’s proposal would impose 
no requirement on either em- 
ployers or individuals. 

His announcement Wednes- 
day overshadowed the long-de- 
layed be ginnin g of formal Sen- 
ate Finance Committee

deliberations on a bill, which 
began Wednesday. 

[President Clinton criticized 
Mr. Dole’s proposal on Thurs- 
day as “politics as usual" that 
would do nothing for the mid- 
dle class and small business, 
The Associated Press reported 
from Washington. 

[“It does a little bit for the 
poor, it leaves all the powerful 
vested interest groups with ev- 
erything they’ve got, and it 
walks away from the middle 
class and small business,” he 
said. “It is politics as usual."] 

Lorrie McHugh, a White 
House spokeswoman, criticized 
the Dole plan, pointing out that 
it was patterned on a proposal 
that President George Bush put 
forward in 1992. Alluding to 
Senator Dole’s presidential am- 
bitions, she said: “It will proba- 
bly do Dole as much good as it 
did for President Bush. You 
cann ot solve the problem of 
pre-existing conditions and cost 
control generally without hav- 
ing universal coverage.” 

The senator would not an- 
swer when a reporter asked him 
whether his plan, which would 
prohibit insurance companies 
from refusing coverage to peo- 

( >le with existing medical prob- 
ems, would not simply result in 
all other Americans with insur- 
ance paying higher rates to help 
cover these people. 

He was also asked why he 
had abandoned his previous ad- 
vocacy of universal insurance 
coverage. He answered: 

“I think I agreed that was 
certainly a goal. I didn't object 
to everybody being covered. 
But I did object on how we were 
going to do it and how we were 
going to get there and how they 
defined it. The president has 
never really defined universal 
coverage except in very broad 

Last summer and fall. Sena- 
tor Dole repeatedly identified 
universal coverage as the place 
where he most agreed with the 
president. He said then that he 
believed it could be attained 

without the bureaucracy and 
price control of the Clinton pro- 

But since then, he has moved 
toward entering the 1996 Re- 
publican presidential race — an 
arena where conservatives are 
dominant. And at the same 
time, he faces frequent pressure 
from the right in the Senate 
Republican caucus, so he has 
given less and less support to a 
measure backed by Senator 
John H. Chafee of Rhode Is- 
land. a moderate Republican, 
requiring individuals to buy in- 
surance for themselves.

Russia: Take Another Look, Privatization Is Working 

I'l ltl.lMIVH M (Til T||t M» >|IVS UMI ^ \M» Till. W\SII]M;tii\ Him 


A Summit 

Just three months ago North Korea 
was threatening to drown Seoul in a “sea 
of fire.” But on Tuesday at the same table 
in Parnnunjom. a North Korean official 
accepted his country’s first summit meet- 
ing with South Korea, to be held July 25 
to 27 in Pyongyang. The meeting fio*s 
from the recent developments that led 
North Korea and the United Slates io 
decide lo resume negotiations in Geneva 
on July 8 on the security, political and 
economic terms by which the North 
might yield its nuclear option. 

Kim 11 Sung is founding father of the 
48-year-old Communist regime in the 
North and perpetrator of massive aggres- 
sion and terrorism against the South. He 
has audaciously reviled the South’* Kim 
Young Sam as the “traitor” head of a 
“puppet” regime, preferring to deal direct- 
ly with the United States. But Washington, 
faithful to its ally, insisted that Seoul be 
included. At that. Kira 11 Sung won a 
provision — that the summit be canceled 
in the event of a “provocative" act — 
which gives him an opening to duck out. 
Nor would he accept giving his Korean 
partner the courtesy of a reciprocal visit 
Perhaps he is reluctant to show the North's 
television audience the consumer-rich, 
democratic reality of a country be has 
depicted as miserable and oppressed. 

The Mismatch in Tokyo 

Only a political party system in its death 
agony could produce a government like 
the one Japan’s House of Representatives 
chose on Wednesday. In a desperation 
pact that could turn into a kind of slow 
mutual suicide. Tokyo's two largest tradi- 
tional {rallies, the Liberal Democrats and 
the Socialists, joined forces to elect Tomii- 
chi Murayama as Japan's first Socialist 
prime minister since the 1940s. Mr. Mur- 
ayama represents the left wing of a leftist 
party, but he now must depend on right- 
wing remnants of Japan's main rightist 
party, the misleadingly named Liberal 
Democrats. It is a prescription for domes- 
tic and foreign policy paralysis and a seri- 
ous blow to Clinton administration hopes 
for cooperation on Korea and trade. 

Yet this unnatural alliance will proba- 
bly accelerate Japan's political realign- 
ment. hastening the day of effective, re- 
sponsive government. Discontented 
members of both parties are already seek- 
ing a new political home. An ineffective 
coalition could alienate voters and 
strengthen the forces of reform. 

The new partnership reflects the three- 
way breakdown of Japan’s present legis- 
lature, the first since 1955 not dominated 
by the Liberal Democrats. With neither 
Liberal Democrats. Socialists nor the re- 
form coalition originally put together by 
Morihiro Hosokawa holding a majority, 
exotic coalitions uniting parties with little 
in common are inevitable. But it would be 

hard to imagine a more surrealistic ar- 
rangement than this Liberal Democratic- 
Socialist alliance. The Liberal Democrats' 
main claim to business and American sup- 
port had always been their ability to keep 
the Socialists out of power. The Socialists' 
only consistent principle for 40 years has 
been to oppose the Liberal Democrats. 

Both elements of the new ruling tandem 
are in decline. The Liberal Democrats 
have been reduced to a collection of fac- 
tions whose loyalties shift on a day-to- 
day basis. Two of those factions bolted 
ranks before the Murayama vote, strength- 
ening the reform alliance that now be- 
comes the main opposition. And the So- 
cialists lost half their seats in last July's 
parliamentary elections, a fair verdict on 
their inability to adjust to changing limes. 

Both are likely to lose even more 
ground after more representative elector- 
al districts are drawn later this year. Un- 
surprisingly. Mr. Murayama has suggest- 
ed that he may dissolve the Diet soon to 
permit one more race before redistriciing. 

For now. ihe old-style politicians most 
threatened by the past year's political 
upheavals are enjoying a sweet revenge. 
Yet unless the Socialists and Liberal 
Democrats begin responding to an elec- 
torate that is fed up with corruption, a 
stagnant economy and high prices, the 
future of these uninspiring veterans looks 
anything but brighL 


Qinton’s Money Problem 

President and Mrs. Clinton have every 
right to establish a legal defense fund. The 
$1,000 limit is reasonable, and the ban on 
contributions from political action com- 
mittees is commendable. But the decision 
to allow contributions by lobbyists and 
people who do business with the govern- 
ment illustrates again the Clintons' uncan- 
ny ability to make a mess of a bad situa- 
tion. Is there no one in this While House 
who understands the erosive impact of the 
administration's habit of demanding full 
credit for half-measures? 

Everyone in Washington knows who the 
lobbyists are and what interests they repre- 
sent. Laundering (heir gifts through their 
personal checking accounts does not re- 
move the taint from such contributions. 
They are intended to buy favor with a 
president who has shown himself all too 
willing to put his favor up for bids. 

The proper course would be to rule out 
contributions from professional lobbyists. 
There is, of course, a reason for the deci- 
sion not to. As individuals, lobbyists are 
dependable donors of so-called personal 
contributions. The Clintons choose not to 
deny themselves this guaranteed income 
stream from people who will contribute to 
a president because he is president, regard- 
less of his party or whether they favor his 
policies. In other words, the Clintons once 
again have chosen dollars over the princi- 
ples of ethical govemmenL 

Their consistency in this regard is re- 
markable. Bill Clinton has let the House 
Democrats, led by their status quo speak- 
er, make a mockery of his pledge to clean 
up political fund raising. He simply lacks 
the will and political clout to deny the 
members their annual dole from corporate 
and union political action committees. 

The sellout has been even more blatant 
on "soft money” contributions — the 
huge gifts from corporations, unions and 
other special interests to the Democratic 
and Republican national committees. Al- 

though Mr. Clinton promised to run the 
influence buyers out of politics, last Fri- 
day he said fie had to let the Democratic 
National Committee take $40 million in 
soft money because the Republicans were 
doing it, too. In other words, the candi- 
date who sold himself as a leader who 
would shake up Washington instead 
came to Washington to copy the Republi- 
cans. Now he teUs us. 

There is a cure for these problems. 
Lead the fight against political action 
committees. Unilaterally declare that 
the Democratic National Committee 
will refuse or sharply limit soft money. 
Announce that lobbyists as well as law- 
yers and executives with business before 
the government cannot give to the White 
House defense fund. Mr. President, 
could we get just one out of three? 


Other Comment 

Going Too Far in Arms Sales 

Every government must make compro- 
mises in the pursuit of its domestic and 
foreign policy interests, and these compro- 
mises mount in proportion to the power of 
a nation. Many Third World nations have 
pointed on accusing finger at the United 
Slates for coddling unsavory regimes and 
looking the other way while a useful ally 
works its way to acquiring nuclear weap- 
ons. One must recognize the dilemmas of 
governance and the need to give prece- 
dence to demands of realpolitik. However, 
shorn of Cold War compulsions, some 
compromises the United States is making 
paint the preeminent military superpower 
m an unflattering light. It Is difficult to 
justify the tripling of U.S. arms exports 
since 1991. accounting for more than half 
of all arms exports to the Third World.

For South Korea, the events following 
Jimmy Carter's mission to Pyongyang 
have been a sobering reminder of its con- 
tinuing dependency and vulnerability. 
This gives it an immense stake in broaden- 
ing its own new channel to the North, even 
while making the military preparations 
essential for the coming test of wills. The 
immediate agenda includes family re- 
unions (for 40 years the North has kept 
millions of members of divided families 
from contacting kin in the South), eco- 
nomic ties and steps to lake political and 
military confrontation off a hair trigger. 

There is ids o a compelling longer-term 
agenda. Seoul must weigh the costs and 
benefits of pursuit of reunification — and 
of nonpursuit. It must calculate whether 
its conventional strength and American 
ties permit it to abandon the U.S. nuclear 
umbrella, which North Korea has made 
part of the price for its own nuclear dis- 
avowal. Looking at their power-packed 
region, some South Koreans wonder if the 
North Korean bomb program might not 
be changed from a threat in the hands of 
the North into a useful deterrent in the 
hands of a reunified Korea. 

Merely lo cite these questions is to indi- 
cate that South Korea's dealings with the 
North bear deeply on American interests. 


Jersey — Privatization has 
made huge strides in Russia. I am 
sure of that after 18 months of 
studying 200 large state-owned 
enterprises that have privatized. 

The average enterprise in this 
study has about 3,(H)0 employ- 
ees. and the inquiry has involved 
on-site interviews lasting up to 
six hours with company manag- 
ers and local officials in nearly

rapid conversion of 14.000 large 
nonmilitary enterprises employing 
a total of 15 million people. The 
Privatization Ministry has been 
carrying this plan out. 

After each company adopted 
a corporate charter, the manag- 
ers and employees were given the 
chance to buy a substantial share 
of the enterprise, with the rest 

More than 1 0,000 of Russia’s 14,000 largest 
companies tcere privatized fry ApriL AB this 
runs counter to public perception in the West, 

half the Russian Federation's 88 
regions, or states. The results are 
heartening. Employees are now 
majority shareholders at most 
companies, but managers exer- 
cise firm controL while outside 
investors have growing influence 
over many enterprises. 

The public also has a stake. 
And many companies are becom- 
ing more efficient than they ever 
were under the old Soviet system. 

The privatization plan approved 
by Parliament in 1992 called for 

auctioned to the general public, 
mutual funds and others. Eveiy 
Russian citizen received a 
10,000-ruble voucher valid for 
the purchase of slock in any en- 
terprise or in a mutual fund that 
invests in enterprises. 

In a second stage of privatiza- 
tion, now being prepared, the 
voucher system is to be replaced 
by cash auctions for shares. 

At Russia's largest pasta 
plant, in Nijny Novgorod, work- 
ers invested not only their own 

savings but the vouchers of fam- 
ily members to acauire 66 per- 
cent of the stock. The workers 
reasoned that owning a huge 
pasta plant was certain to be 
profitable because people were 
not going to stop eating pasta, 
whatever the state of the econo- 
my. Major outside shareholders 
include two Russian companies 
that buy and sell pasta. In addi- 
tion, Italian investors have 
agreed to provide new equip- 
ment in exchange for a share of 
the company’s profits — and a 
toehold in the Russian market. 

That experience is not uncom- 
mon. In our study, employees 
bought an average of 66 percent 
of each enterprise (senior man- 
agers got 8 percent), and 21 per- 
cent went to outsiders. The Rus- 
sian government retained 13 
percent, and these shares are to 
be sold later to outsiders — par- 
ticularly Russian or foreign in- 
vestors who agree to put money 
into the companies. 

American investors have got 
into the act. Procter & Gamble 
Co., for example, bought at least 
14 percent of a chemical compa- 

ny in the region of Tula, and 
local officials expect it to in- 
crease its stake and even get 
membership on the board. 

More than 10,000 of Russia's 
14,000 largest companies were 
privatized By April, and the gov- 
ernment has been moving to fin- 
ish the voucher auctions by July. 

All this runs counter to public 
perception in the West where it 
seems to be common wisdom 
that privatization has gone off 
the tracks — that most citizens 
sold their vouchers for food, that 
managers and bureaucrats 
bought control of the enterprises 
and that the underworld bias hi- 
jacked the entire process. 

Obviously, there have been 
some irregularities — so huge 
a program could hardly be car- 
ried out smoothly — and the Rus- 
sian press has chosen to play 
them up. But our research un- 
covers a different picture. 

Across the 40 regions we visit- 
ed, employees held onto their 
vouchers and used them to buy 
large stakes in their companies. 

The outside owners of the 200 
enterprises were mainly well- 
known Russian investment funds, 
individual citizens, other Russian 

Japan: Toward an American- Style Left and Right 

By Gregory Clark 

T OKYO — The installation of 
a SocialisL Tomiichi Mur- 
ayama. as prime minister thanks 
to skillful maneuvering by the 
leader of the conservative Liberal 
Democratic Party. Yohei Kono, 
has far more logic than might 
appear. I predicted on this page 
last April 18 that Mr. Kono was 
the man to watch. Let me try to 
explain the logic. 

Conventional wisdom said last 
year that a corrupt, conservative 
Liberal Democratic Party had fi- 
nally been thrown out of power 
by a coalition of opposition par- 
ties and reformist LDP break- 
aways. The wisdom was wrong. 

Many of those “reformist” 
breakaways had in fact bolted 
the party under a cloud of cor- 
ruption ' — in particular the key 
coalition power broker. Ichiro 
Ozawa, wfio had been a protege 
of Shin Kane mam, the former 
LDP power broker who is now 
being prosecuted on charges that 
he received large bribes from con- 
struction companies. By waring 
the flag of reform violently 
enough, they were able to con- 
vince enough voters to give them 
a chance to form a government 
under Morihiro Hosokawa. 

The first blow to the coalition 
tame when Mr. Hosokawa fell on 
a minor corruption issue. Then 
the Socialists, together with the 
Sakigake group of more genuine- 
ly liberal breakaways from the 
LDP. decided to depart. They 
could not stomach Mr. Ozawa's 
authoritarian and hawkish line. 

This left a coalition made up 
of Mr. Ozawa’s followers, some 
right-wing Socialists, amateur 
political idealists around Mr. 
Hosokawa and the opportunistic 
Komei party with its tight Bud- 
dhist factional backing to form 
a minority government. Even 
their choice of the amiable Tsu- 
tomu Haia as prime minister 
could not disguise the Ozawa 
coloring and the lack of political 
logic to the coalition. 

Meanwhile, the LDP had 
elected as its leader the liberal 
and dovish Yohei Kono, whose 
credentials as a reformer and 
dean politician were much long- 
er and stronger than those of 
anyone in the coalition. It was 
only a matter of lime before he 

was able to do a deal to allow the 
LDP to regain power in partner- 
ship with the Socialists and the 
Sakigake grouping, and with Mr. 
Murayama as prime minister. 

In short, Japanese politics are 
reluming to the path they should 
and would have been following 
but for the Ozawa distraction. 

Japan is a fairly nonideologi- 
cal society. With the Cold War 
over, both the Socialists and the 
Liberal Democrats have been 
able to moderate most of their 
former hard-line positions. (The 

Socialists now insist that in Eng- 
lish they should be called the 
Social Democratic Party). 

In any case, the Liberal Dem- 
ocratic Party has long had quite 
a few Konostyle liberals. So the 
natural political dynamic today 
is toward a fuzzy tiberal-versus- 
rigbt split rather like that in the 
United States, with political par- 
ties being secondary. The only 
real issue is the role of the mili- 
tary in foreign policy. 

Most Western commentary on 
Japan has been taken in by Mr. 

Ozawa's seemingly attractive ac- 
tivism in domestic affairs and his 
brave talk about Japan taking a 
stronger role in world affairs. 

But many Japanese are put off 
by his abrupt manner and his 
hawkishness. In an election held 
purely on the military issue, the 
liberals and doves would win 

It is the unassuming Mr. Kono 
who remains closer to the politi- 
cal heartland, even if he has been 
ignored in the West. Look to him 
as the next prime minister if Mr. 
Murayama comes unstuck.

Italy: Merely the Start of a Transition 

'OMO, Italy — 

■ about Italy's new 

The truth 
ment seems to be that no one 
knows the truth about it, not even 
its members. They are mostly new 
to power. They were not elected 
on a coherent program. None of 
their leaders — Silvio Berlusconi, 
the new prime minister, Gian- 
caiio Fim or Umberto Bossi — 
had been a politician of national 
importance. Thau of course, is 
why they were elected. 

They were outsiders to the old 

S stera. which had a comfortable 
ace for the political insiders of 
all the major parties and a payoff 
for all. It was a system, as the 
historian Sergio Romano has 
said, by which the principal par- 
ties “exacted an informal tax on 
all transactions involving state 
funds and placed their men at the 
top of the entire economic and 
administrative machine: banks, 
state industries, welfare and so- 
cial institutions, municipal com- 
panies. cultural agencies." 

No one in the system accepted 
that he was corrupt, since every- 
one was corrupt. At the same 
time, everyone recognized the 
universality of corruption and 
was diminished and demoralized 
by it. The investigations of inde- 
pendent magistrates now have 
begun to dismantle that system. 

The parliamentary elections 
that followed in March of this 
year produced victory for Mr. 
Berlusconi, the highly successful 
media entrepreneur, who market-

ed himself to voters as the manag- 
er who would run Italy as a sound 
and honest business. The other 
winning parties were the northern 
regional movement of Mr. Bossi 
and the neofascists, or “post-fas- 
cists” as they prefer to call them- 
selves, led by Mr. FinL 

Ail that united the three was 
their hostility to the system that 
existed before. Mr. Berlusconi 
wants privatization and conven- 
tional economic reform. He cur- 
rently is compromised by his un- 
willingness to give up his private 
television, newspaper and maga- 
zine empire (or inability to do so, 
as it is heavily indebted), while 
attempting to impose his influ- 
ence on the three state television 
networks. These were hostile to 
his election and have been the 
informal fiefs of the three previ- 
ously dominant parties, one net- 
work conceded to each party. 

Mr. Bossi's political program is 
power delegation to the regions, 
specifically, major fiscal autono- 
my for the economically success- 
ful and productive north. 

Mr. Ftni, a nationalist, opposes 
regionalism and has corpora tist 
economic leanings, his party's 
principal intellectual legacy from 
fascism. These are not reconcilable 
with the free- market, tax-cutting 
promises of Mr. Berlusconi, whose 
principal financial adviser is an 
academic adept of Mil ton Fried- 

A White House Shake-Up , as Usual 

new White House crowd 
ousts the old order and arrives 
full of beans and green as grass 
to change the world, the word 
goes forth: You ain't seen 
nothin' yeL It happened with 
the advent of Jimmy Carter in 
1977, Ronald Reagan in 1981 
and once again when Bill Clin- 
ton and his merry band hit town 
in January 1993. 

Old-timers simply shake their 
beads and wait. And soon, sto- 
ries of bungling amateurism mul- 
tiply. congressional jitters mount 
as the midterm elections loom, 
and one day every gear is sud- 
denly slammed into reverse in a 
“shake-up" at the White House. 

The predictable second phase 
of the famili ar cycle is what we 
are witnessing now with Leon 
Fanetta replacing Mack McLar- 
ty as White House chief of staff. 
Mr. Panetta says he has the 
“mist and authority” and a man- 
date to put the good ship Clinton 
on a more effective tack. 

What is seldom noticed at 
these heady moments is that 
White House administrative re- 
structuring is as likely to be over- 
rated now as seasoning and ex- 
perience were underrated before. 

Reorganization may convert 
the Clinton White House into a 
tight ship, but no one should 
suppose that Mr. Panetta’s tin- 
kering will change Captain 
Clinton into a Bligh or a Queeg. 
No White House system ever 
frees itself of the temperament 
and habits of the president, and 
a system is less likely to do so 
when both the first lady and the 
vice president are independent 
centers of powers. 

Bill Clinton is hardlv the first

president to be accused of oper- 
ating a chaotic administration. 
Franklin D. Roosevelt acknow- 
ledged master of 20lh century 
presidential politics, liked to 
weave tangled lines of authority 
and to assign contradictory 
tasks sure to bring subordinates 
into collision. Dwight Eisen- 
hower imported the military staff 
system to the White House, or 
tried to. but was accused — 
sometimes misleadingly, it now 
appears — of having Buie infor- 
mation and less control of his 
own administration. 

The Clinton operation could 
use a tighter rein: no one denies 
that Symptoms of disorder are 
plentiful and are not confined 
to the White House. 

Secretary of Slate Warren 
Christopher, a good man and a 
good lawyer, is primarily re- 
sponsible for the widespread 
impression that this administra- 
tion has different foreign poli- 
cies on Monday. Wednesday 
and Friday from those on Tues- 
day, Thursday and Saturday. 
Even when his instincts are 
sound, he lacks the force to pre- 
vail over the free-lancers, in- 
cluding the chief free-lancer, 
Bill Clinton himself. 

Secretary of Energy Haze] 
O’Leary is more of less constant- 
ly “revealing” alleged scandals in 
past U.S. nuclear policy that 
sometimes leave the impression 
that the policy was made by Dr. 
Strangdove. This is pure grand- 
standing. Anyone with a library 
card and a good bibliography 
could find many of the same 
materials, long since revealed 

and more dispassionately ana- 
lyzed, in the scientific literature. 

The attorney general, Janet 
Reno, has constituted herself the 
ethical hall monitor of the ad- 
ministration and seems to have 
no political sense whatsoever — 
and to glory in its absence. 

Then there are the pictures 
that emerge in the press about 
policy-making processes. Bob 
Woodward’s book “The Agen- 
da" is replete with materials 
garnered from White House 
blabbermouths and depicts a 
president contemptuous of his 
own very impressive accom- 
plishment in the 1993 budget, 
scorning it as a “turkey” and a 
handout for bond dealers. 

A recent front-page report in 
The Washington Post, so far un- 
conlradicted, portrays policy- 
making in the dangerous Korean 
issue as improvisation, prompted 
to its latest twist by Jimmy Car- 
ter's egocentric pilgrimage to 
treat with Kim B Song. 

Accurate or not these revela- 
tions do a great deal of damage. 
And yeL if Bill Clinton were as 
closed and egocentric a personal- 
ity as he is an open one, the press 
would be full of dark stories 
about secretiveness and para- 
noia, comparing him to Richard 
Nixon. No president can win the 
battle of conventional wisdom so 
beloved of the Washington press. 

Leon Panetta's success will 
depend on bow many self-indul- 
gent habits President Clinton 
can be prevailed upon to part 
with. On the whole, however, in 
matters of White House struc- 
tural tinkering, blessed is he

or foreign investors. 
There ware only a few cases of 
shadowy, unidentified owners. 

Now that the formal privatiza- 
tion process is nearly complete, 
there is considerable evidence 
that the enterprises are becoming 
more efficient. More than 60 per- 
cent of the sales at these 200 
companies are to private busi- 
nesses. In the Russian state- 
owned sector, by contrast, sales 
have been almost exclusively to 
other state-owned enterprises. 

The companies have cut em- 
ployee rolls by 20 percent since 
1991 and the managers say they 
would cut 20 percent more if a 
social safety net were in place. 

About 20 percent of the enter- 
prises report contacts with for- 
eign investors to explore invest- 
ments, joint ventures and other 
projects. More than half have al- 
ready changed their product lines 
to reflect the products that con- 
sumers really want to buy. 

And major outside sharehold- 
ers — Russian companies and 
investment funds, and some for- 
eign investors — have begun to 
demand fundamental change, 
even seizing control. At the Vla- 
dimir Tractor Factory, near 
Moscow, a Russian businessman 
with a Harvard business degree 
unseated the plant’s chief execu- 
tive with the help of a New York 
investment group that owned 
one-sixth of the stock. 

In many cases, these foreign 
investors bring access to new 
markets, new technology and 
new capital. The government has 
set op a Russian Privatization 
Center to provide technical as- 
sistance and financing for the 
promising enterprises. 

And tire R ussian equivalent of 
the Securities and Exchange 
Co mmissi on has moved to im- 
prove disclosure of information 
to investors and ensure greater 
representation on corporate 
boards for minority shareholders, 
because many privatized compa- 
nies plan to sell new shares to 
public investors very soon. 

On the negative side, compa- 
nies are starved for capital and 
are operating at significantly re- 
duced levels, unable to find buy- 
ers for their products. Some se- 
nior managers still need to learn 
how to negotiate with investors. 

There is great need for better 
accounting systems so that man- 
agers can figure out which of 
tneir products make money and 
which don’t. One engine manu- 
facturer in southern Russia, with 
5,000 employees, makes more 
than 100 types and sizes of en- 
gines, without having the ac- 
counting tools to pin down costs 
and profits, model by model. 

Finally, the managers them- 
selves can be a problem. The 
beards at most of the 200 enter- 
prises we studied are made up 
entirely of senior managers, so 
outside shareholders have little 
chance to advise or discipline top 
management And many senior 
managers argue that they should 
own more of the stock in their 
companies while employee own- 
ership should be reduced. 

Certainly, employee equity 
seems likely to decline, particu- 
larly at the less successful compa- . 
nies, because they are planning to 
sell new shares to the public or 
investors rather than the workers. 

But the fact is that Russian 
enterprises have never had work- 
er controL Fewer than 5 percent 
of the companies we visited had 
any rank-and-file employee rep- 
resentation on company boards: 
trade union power has largely 
vanished. If anyone has too much 
power in these companies, it will 
be the managers, not the workers. 

But this problem is hardly 
unique to Russia. And, like the 
otho' problems with economic 
privatization, it will not be 
salved overnight. The point is 
that Russia has made a far more 
promising start than its critics, 
seem willing to admit.

New Frontiers for Physics After the Particle Wake A Push-Pull for Peace 

Regarding “ A Requiem for Phys- 
ics in America" (Meanwhile, June 
16) by Dick Teresi: 

To be sure, physicists mourn the 
passing of a great era in particle 
physics. For a long time particle 
physicists have been the standard- 
bearers for physics. Dreams of an all- 
encompassing theory have vividly 
captured the public's imagination, 
not only inspiring lavish funding but 
also attracting many generations of 
budding scientists to commit their 
lives to these noble quests. 

Yet the demise of the supercol- 
lider project is not an end for phys- 
ics m America. Physics is not the 
exclusive domain of big science, and 
furthermore the challenging fron- 
tiers of this field are not exclusively 
those of the very small, or very large. 

History speaks agains t the idea that 
epoch-making discoveries generally 
come from grandiose projects. Some 
of the greatest transformations in 19th 
and 20lh century physics have resulted 
from the simplest bench-top experi- 
ments. In the United States. Mimltin 
discovered the quantization of charge 
in electrons using a simple oil drop 
experiment; Michelson and Morley 
proved the absence of the “ether" us- 
ing simple optics; Schockley. Bardeen 
and Bratlam developed the transistor 
using simple electrical measurements. 

Moreover, there are some very new 
frontiers. A great lesson of 20th cen- 
tury physics has been the discovery 
that many mysteries of the natural 
world cannot’ be understood bv an 

exclusively reductionist approach: 
the “Cartesian approach" that leads 
us to build ever larger accelerators. 
Microscopic laws that govern phys- 
ics produce unexpectedly beautiful 
“emergent properties” when large 
numbers of panicles interact collec- 
tively. The unders tanding of emer- 
gent properties requires new princi- 

K les, new language and new concepts. ’ 
iagnetism, superfluidity, supercon- 
ductivity and the development of 
semiconductor properties of crystals 
are among the simplest manifesta- 
tions of such emergent physics. 

New developments, such as the 
discovery of high temperature super- 
conductivity in ceramic oxides, sug- 
gest that we have hardly begin to 
probe the potential for fundamental- 
ly new types of physics in macroscop- 
ic media. With a little imagination, 
we may perhaps appreciate that be- 
tween the mundane properties of 
simple elements and the intricately 
complex properties of life, there is 
a spectrum of fundamentally new 
classes of phvsical phenomena to be 
discovered the measure of the vitali- 
ty of a science is the presence of 
dreams and vistas. These are alive 
and well in physics, and with a wake, 
rather than a requiem for particle 
physics, we may admire past achieve- 
ments but also move on to embrace 
challenges that lie ahead

Regarding "Consider This: A 
Broader Coalition to Pacify ■ the Bal- 
kans” (Opinion. May 31) by Mihajlo 
Mihajlov and Max Singer: 

There is nothing wrong with hav- 
ing independent states in the re- 
gion, as long as they are able to 
defend themselves from the poten- 
tial aggression of neighboring 
states and are closely dependent on 
such stales economically — and 
therefore vulnerable to pressure 
from their neighbors in regard to 
the treatment of minority popula- 
tions. which includes making avail- 
able such options as dual citizen- 

In some cases, as with the current 
Bosnian-Croatian accord, this may 
mean joint military defenses 
against a stronger third party to 
ensure security from aggression. 

In the future, it must certainly 
mean a central government in Bos- 
nia- Herzegovina that is capable of 
defending itself. 

On the other hand, proximity 
alone will go a long way toward 
encouraging economic interdepen- 
dence throughout the region funder 
non belligerent conditions and in 
the absence of sanctions). 

Only such a push-pull, assertive- 
cooperative arrangement will bring 
peace to the Balkans in the foresee- 
able future. Fostering such an ar- 
rangement should be the backbone 
of a responsible Balkan policy.

iOSTON — It’s summertime and 
the living is not easy for the book 
world. On the movie screen. Jack 
Nicholson is transformed from a civi- 
lized editor to a werewolf just to fight 
jff the sharks in the business. 

In real life, the gap between rich 
and poor writers is now greater than 
between CEOs and drones. The New 
Yorker just chronicled the plight of 
James Wilcox, whose six novels have 
produced rave reviews, small sales. 


and shrinking advances. When visit- 
ed recently. Mr. Wilcox “had just 
finished the last of three meals he'd 
extracted from eighteen pieces of 
chicken he bought at Key Food for 
three dollars and forty cents/' 

Meanwhile '“The Bridges of Madi- 
son County" has been on the fiction 
best-seller list for 98 weeks. The non- 
fiction list has Richard Nixon. H. R. 
Hal deman, Dan Quayle, William 
Bennett, and two books on near- 
death experiences. Against this dire 
background, it is lime to offer up my 
annual, entirely quirky list of best, 
modest, and nonsellers. These are 
books that have nothing in common 
except their reader's pleasure. 

Let me begin the list back at the 
wolf pacL Alice Hoffman’s latest 
fantasy. “Second Nature," is based 
on the" boy- raised-as- wolf fable. But 
we’re not talking werewolf here. Al- 
ice Hoffman's novels require leaps 
of faith but this one is wonderfully 
grounded in the relationships of a 
woman and the men — son. father, 
ex-husband, lover — around her. 

The feral creature in Margaret 
Atwood’s high-energy novel “The 
Robber Bride." is a two-footed one 
named Zertia. She is the malevolent 
force who insinuates herself into the 
lives of a war historian, a New Age 
dreamer and a businesswoman. After 
she has stolen their confidence and 
their men. these women finally and 
deliciously wake up and seek revenge. 

The “Sleeping Beauties." in Su- 
sanna Moore's novel are not under 
any hex. They are emotionally doz- 
ing in the shade of their lush Hawai- 
ian pasL The novel's Prince Charm- 
ing. however, turns out to be a 
Hollywood Mr. Wrong. 

Tlie harsh Newfoundland coast is 
the star of “The Shipping News.” 
This is a humane and comedic story 
of a loser named Quoyle. It is so filled 
with quirky speech and oddball char- 
acters that it is a wonder author E 
Annie Proulx has escaped the fate of 
James Wilcox. Buy this book or she 
may yet be sharing his chicken. 

•'The Unredeemed Captive" is 

storytelling of another son — history 
as it should be. John Demos has 
written a moving, speculative narra- 
tive about a Puritan girl prison- 
er during an Indian raid. V. hen she 
refuses to be “repatriated." it is as 
challenging to her family jn<j culture 
as if an American hostage in Iran had 
refused liberation. 

This is a prime lime for people 
telling their own tale;. we have a 
bumper crop of memoirs. You 
don’t have to be Irish, or a journal- 
ist, or even male to savor f ele Ha- 
mill's "A Drinking Life." Mr. Ha- 
mill is best describing the working- 
class childhood when he learned 
that “drinking was part of being a 
man. . . . Drinking was the reward 
for work, the fuel of celebrations, 
the consolation for death or de- 
feat." Hard lessons to unlearn. 

Madeleine Kunin's memoir. “Liv- 
ing a Political Life," is more inti- 
mate and brave than the usual polit- 
ical fare. The first woman governor 
of Vermont writes about family, 
feminism, crying and legislating at 
a time when, “the female politician i.> 
unexpected; her presence provokes a 
brief digression during which the 
public wanders off into internal rnus- 
ings about how this woman is like a 
man and yet not like a man." 

I think I was the last in my crowd 
to read Maya Angelou's memoir, “1 
Know Why The Caged Bird Sings." 
Raped at 8. an unwed mother in her 
teens, the young black girl in this 
book still grew up to be, well, Maya 
Angelou. In a year when poverty- 
bashing and single-mother shaming 
is popular, she's good for the soul. 

So, for that matter, are the Delany 
sisters, stars of “Having Our Say," 
who offer up 200 years of collective 
wisdom. A dentist and a teacher by 
trade, these pioneers of the black 
middle class “loved our country, even 
though it didn't love us." Old age is 
not for sissies; the Delanys survive. 

What do you call “Peripheral Vi- 
sions"? Mary Catherine Bateson 
doesn't color within the lines of any 
established literary form. But in 
this memoir/ essay/ reflection on 
the richness and complexity of liv- 
ing in a multicuhured world, she 
explains why the best focus re- 
quires the widest lens. 

Finally, the lens that Sherwin Nu- 
land holds up to death in “How We 
Die" is nothing if not ciear-eyed. 
“We hide our faces from its face." he 
writes of death, “but we still spread 
our fingers just a bit. because there 
is something in us that cannot resist 
a peek." He makes us take a long, 
hard, honest look.

be on the luxury end of Lon- 
don's property market, 
where 9 per cent of buyers 
are from overseas, sharply 
up from 3 percent in 1992? 

On the face of it, this 
clara pdown could be seen as 
hurting business. The 
amount of dubious money 
involved is thought to be 
over £2 billion ($1.3 billion) 

a year, with much of it going 
into orooertv. So what will

former New York City Po 
lice headquarters, was dcvel 
oped in the 1980s. Prices 
and interest in the unusual 
structure, which borders 
Chinatown and Little Italy, 
have been rising along w ith 
downtown's fortunes. 

Ms. Ambrose sees the c\ 
pansion into new neighbor- 
hoods as an inevitable by- 
product of rising prices in 
established areas: “When the 
market was very high, there 
was a lot of expansion, as al 
ways happens." she says 
going on to cite the Last Vil 
Fage. settled after Greenwich 
Village became chic (in the 

early I970s.t: Triheca. which 
became popular after Soho 
became expensive tlate 
1970s): and ihe Upper West 
Side above 96 ih Street, gen- 
trified when the West Side 
became popular with young 
families (the early I9S0 m. 

As Ms. Ambrose points 
out a combination of lack of 
money and need for largi 
spaces puLs artists in the van 
guard of sentrificaiion. To- 
day. artists' colonies are 
sprouting up iu such unlike- 
ly places as Williamsburg 
and Red Hook tholh in 
Brooklyn). Long Island. 
City. Queens. Jersey City 

and Newark. New Jersey. 

Overseas buyers from Ko- 
rea. China. Taiwan and 
Hong Kong constitute a ma 
jor investment group inter 
ested in marginal areas. 

Ms. Ambrose sees world 
wide inllationary concerns 
over national debts as an ad- 
ditional factor in the over- 
seas investment interest in 
the high end of the market. 

“The Chinese have re- 
placed the Japanese.” Ms. 
Corcoran notes. The Chi 
nese are interested in bulk 
purchases. Ms. Corcoran re- 
cently completed the sale of 
a S 30-million block of apart 

ments for investment only. 

An even more dramatic 
example of Far Eastern in- 
terest in New York real es- 
tate is the reported involve 
ment of Potylinks Interna 
tional Lid., a Hong Kong in 
vestment consortium, in 
Donald Trump's Riverside 
South, the largest residential 

project in the city since Bat 
lery Park City 20 years ago. 

The Hong Kong investors, 
who would take over financ 
ing Ihe controversial $3 bil 
lion project, are reportedly 
attracted by the marketabili- 
ty of the Trump name.

into property. So what will 
happen if strange-looking 
gentlemen bearing bulging 
briefcases can no longer 
take over the anonymous 
ownership of desirable resi- 
dences in exchange for large 
wads of used bank notes? 

Surprisingly, the answer 
could well be good news for 
legitimate buyers, both local 
and foreign. The disappear- 
ance of a large amount of 
money from any market can 
only lead to downward pres- 
sure on prices, so purchasers 
are almost certain to benefit 
in that regard. 

The new regulations 
could, for a start, restrain the 
spate of cash sales of houses 
in the £500,000 to £2 mil- 
lion pound range to the kind 
of newly wealthy Russian 
entrepreneurs who have 
spent a massive £70 million 
in London in the past few 
months. Two legitimate. 
Russian businessmen have 

moved jnlo London’s most 
ostentatious address. The 

stead, where multi million- 
pound properties are also 
owned by the Sultan of 
Brunei and members or the 
Saudi royal family. But 
Scotland Yard is on the trail 
of seven other Russians sus- 
pected of being gang lead- 
ers. who have shown a 
strong interest in London s 
best accommodations. 

Beyond the cloak-and- 
dagger. however, lies a hard 
fact whatever the source of 
the payment, London re- 
mains very much in tavor 
with buyers. This is readily 
confirmed by all the leading 
agents, who have also wit- 
nessed price rises for luxury 
property while the rest of the 
British market continues to 
languish in the doldrums. 

Aylesfords. for instance, 
reports, “We are finding a 
strong demand for all houses 
in prime London locations. 
In the last four months, 
prices have firmed up and 
vendors are once again 
achieving close to asking 

The Lassmans agency re- 
ports that “Central London 
prices have increased by 15 
percent to 20 percent since 
this time last year, depend- 
ing on the area and the con- 
dition of the property. The 
betterproperties have shown 
greater growth." 

The Savills agency is see- 
ing a rise of 15.7 percent in 
prices for prime London 
property since December 
1992, including a 5 percent 
rise in the first three months 
of 1994. This leaves the 
market still below the 1989 
peak, but it is back to 1987 
levels. Best performers were 
Mayfair (up 25 percent) and 
Kensington (up 20 percent).

A depressed market 
notwithstanding, high-quali-

“bargain" only in relative 

“Please don't write that 
there are bargains to be had 
in Paris,” pleads Dominique 
Brizard of the John Taylor 
agency in Paris. “Then we 
find so many foreigners 
coming who expect to buy 
something cheap, and a 
high-quality property just 
does not come cheap.” 

If a property is realistical- 
ly priced, however, there is 
no lack of qualified buyers, 
according to a number of 
agents specializing in the 
luxury end of the market 
(defined as properties start- 
ing at 10 million francs, or 
$1 .75 million). 

It did not take long, for ex- 
ample, to sell a 2-hectare 
oceanfront estate in a prime 
section of Cap d’ Antibes for 
90 million francs. Monika 
Barco of John Taylor in 




Cannes says that was a rea- 
sonable price tag for the 
property, with its . 700- 
square-meter house, sauna, 
jacuzzi. rockscaped pool and 
private harbor, all in impec- 
cable condition. ' 

In contrast, a beautiful but 
“overpriced" residence cm 
Cap Ferrat languished for 
two years on the market and 
recently sold for less than 
half its original asking price 
of 60 million francs. As 
Dondle Higby of Sotheby’s 
in Paris explains, "There

isn’t aglut on the market for 
true luxury, but the price, bas- 
; to be right.” She warns her: 
clients that, the first offer 
they receive may prove to be 
the best, and if they do not 
accept it^they may, wind up 
regretting it later on. 

In Paris, apartments in die 
most sought-after areas, 
such, as the seventh and 
eighth orrondissements, to 1 
day cost about 50.000 fiancs 
asquare meter and more for, 
fine properties in move-in 
condition. “We- have some- 
- thing on Avenue Foch for 
.34,000. francs a square roe 
terr says Mrs Higby, “but it 
needs to be completely re- 
done; and you have to figure 
10,000- to 15,000 francs a 
square meter for remodel- 
ing ” For a newly renovated 
200-square-meter apartment 
in the 16th arrondissement, 
complete with marble bath- 
rooms, a library, three bed- 
rooms, balconies and south- 
ern exposure, the asking 
price through John Taylor is 
8.3 million francs. 

Who aretoe customers for 
these lavish dwellings? Al- 
though they are always the 
“seriously rich,” Parisian 
buyers are different from 
those on the COte d'Azur.. 
Paris is more of an in- 
vestors’ market, more 
volatile and somewhat more 
speculative because many 
buyers have business rea- 
sons for looking for a resi- 
dence, whether primary or 
secondary. ... 

Mrs. Higby finds that the 
majority of foreigners who 
want a pied-S-tene in Paris 
expect a big pied — often 500. 
square meters or more. She 
fin ds many French among 
current buyers, with some 
Arabs, Italians and Swiss, 
and afew Americans. There 
is increasing interest in 
rentals, even though for 
comparable opulence, they 
may run at . '70,000- 
100,000 francs per month. 

• Incan trast, onthe Riviera, 
"you have mainly secondary 
residences because people 

want to buy there - for the 
weather and the lifestyle,” 
says Mary Fort manager of 
the expatriate section of toe 
Woolrich Society in Paris. 
Except for Monaco, the 
rental market on the Cote 
d’Azur is nonexistent 
“If you come here, it's be- 
cause you love it and you 
want to buy,” insists Terry 
Bourke, a partner in Hugo 
Skillington Imraobilier, 

» could stay in hotels 
the cost of a luxury 


Ms. Barco of John Taylor 
notes that Germans have 
constituted 70 percent of her 
buyers for Riviera properties 
in the last 18 months. 

“They have the money, 
and they are worried about 
what is happening in Ger- 
many at the moment” she 
says. "And they love the 
sun.” . 

In Monaco, Germans are 
the third most active nation- 
ality in the market after the 
French and Italians. 

Mr. Bourke believes there 

is reason for optimism about 
real estate on the Riviera. He 
has not had so many in- 
quiries since 1990. “The bi; 
money has been on deposit 
he says, “and now it is being 
taken out to spend on what it 
should be spent on - luxury 
and fun in the sun.” In the 
last several months, his 
agency has moved two 
sumptuous estates at close to 
their asking prices of 1 8 mil- 
lion francs and 15 million 

Ms. Barco says the reason 
more properties are on the 
market these days is not be- 
cause the market has col 
lapsed, but because some in 
divi duals have personal eco- 
nomic problems and are sell- 
ing. “Still, all the agents I 
know have trouble finding 
enough houses with the right 
quality at the right price.” 
she says. “The expectations 
of many sellers are still too 
high, out of line with the 

When price and quality 
are in alignment, properties 
can move quickly, even to- 
day. That is toe expectation 
for two estates on Skilling 
ton's current roster - identi 
colly priced, but different in 
appeal. One is characterized 
by Mr. Bourke as “Holly 
wood-glitzy,” with a 400 
square-meter main home on 
five hectares, a pool with 
waterfall and two staff cot- 
tages. plus the requisite 
ocean view. 

The other boasts olive 
trees, landscaped gardens, a 
floodlit tennis court, pool, 
three staff and guesr cot- 
tages. and a hunting lodge 
for the wild boar to be found 
on the 70-hectare property 
Mr. Bourke describes its fu- 
ture owner as someone who 
wants to be “in touch with 
the natural beauty of the 
Cote d'Azur." 

It takes only 17 million 
francs to make one of these 
houses your home.

Luxury Deal Estate — 

The Eaton Hall Defeat of Modernism 

0 s owners of 
much of central 
London, the 
Grosvenors, one 
of the richest families in 
Britain, headed by the 
Dukes of Westminster, 
could always have anything 
they wanted. At the turn of 
the century, what they want- 
ed was a Victorian Gothic 
masterpiece, and they got 
the great Alfred Water- 
house, architect of London's 
Natural History Museum, to 
design it for them. It became 
Eaton Hall, in Cheshire. 

Had it survived, that 
building would now be 
prized and cherished. But in 
the 1960s. the then Duke of 
Westminster was seduced 
by what the design gurus of 
the day decreed to be “good 
taste" The Victorian cre- 
ation of Waterhouse was de- 
molished to make way for a 
fashionably stark, “honest, 
flat-roofed white box. 
which, although clad in ex- 
pensive marble, managed to 
look like bare concrete. 

The architectural profes- 
sion at the lime hailed the 
Grosvenors as great patrons. 
But the locals hated the new 
Eaton Hall as soon as it was 
completed in 1973 and soon 
dubbed it “the airport." 

It took 1 5 years - and sev- 
eral speeches by Prince 
Charles - for the family 
(now headed by a young 
Duke of Westminster) to ad- 
mit that they had never real- 
ly liked the minimalist de- 
sign and to decide to do 
something about it. They 
hired Sir Hugh Casson. one 
of Prince Charles's architec- 
tural mentors, to advise 
them on the remodeling, 
which cost as much again as 
the original building. 

The new-Iook Eaton Hall 
resembles a French chateau 
rather than an ainrort car 
park. The exterior is in two

ute to the late, lamented Wa- 
terhouse design in the shape 
of a restored porte cochere, 
which recreates what was an 
elegant point of entry. 

The lesson of Eaton Hall 
has not been lost on British 
estate agents. Another no- 
table country house, Hare- 
wood Park, situated on 10 
lush acres near the famous 
Ascot racecourse and boast- 
ing over 15 large rooms, was 
- like Eaton Hall - built in 
the 1960s on uncompromis- 
ingly modem lines, complete 
with the huge “picture win- 
dows" of the period. It could 
not attract buyers in 1993. 

As Ian Stewart, country 
house partner at the Savills 
real-estate agency, explains. 
“It just did not look right for 
the price.” So the vendor de- 
cided on a dramatic change 
to its appearance. He spent 
some £500.000 ($780,000) 
to make it look 200 yeare 
older than its real age, and it 
was worth every penny. A 
few months ago, the “new” 
mock-Georgian Harewood 
Park was sold by a delighted 
vendor for £2 million to a 
foreign buyer. 

It is the dominance in the 
market of the international 
investor - as many as three 
in four at the top end of the 
market - that gives an edge 
to properties with the tradi- 
tional “English’* look. Ac- 
cording to Mr. Stewart, the 
order of style preference 
among buyers is as follows: 
Elizabethan/Tudor (“Ameri- 
cans just love expoised tim- 
bers and lots of romantic 
history”), Georgian, Queen 
Anne, Regency and - in- 
creasingly — early Victorian, 
especially mock-Gothic, 
which is becoming more ap- 
preciated for its exuberance 
and variety.

What this cosmopolitan 
bunch had in common, says 
Jonathan Seal of Cluttons, 

the more muted Queen Anne 
style, Knight Frank & Rut- 
ley can offer “style and tra- 
dition with the latest modem 
technology" in Upper 
Cheyne Row. Chelsea. In 

was that they wanted “a typ- spite of being on the list of 

CnnlioVi ** rr i T f 1 lmllv and histon- 

ically English home," 
preferably a classical stucco- 
fronted period property. 

“One of the buyers said 
they had seen ‘Upstairs 
Downstairs’ on television 
and wanted to live in a 
house just like the Bellamys 
lived in.” says Mr. Seal. 
“Another said to me: ‘I will 
only buy a classically styled 
house. If it does not look 
like a typical English home, 
why should I buy in Lon- 

Avril Butt, of agents de 
Groot Collis, finds that a 
property’s historical back- 
ground can make ail the dif- 
ference to a rich buyer. Ap- 
pleby Castle, which was 
built in the beautiful Cum- 
bria countryside in 1170. is 
one of the properties on her 
books, and she is especially 
proud of its keep, built by 
King Henry I and little 
changed for 800 years. The 
castle itself has evolved over 
the centuries, with many 
battles fought around it and 
a major refurbishment un- 
dertaken by Lady Anne Clif- 
ford in 1653. Whoever buys 
Appleby Castle is unlikely 
ever to lack in material for 
dinner-party conversations. 

For those with a taste for 

architecturally and histori- 
cally important buildings, 
this property has a heated 
swimming pool with high- 
powered water jets. 

In general, says Mr. Stew- 
art, the historic houses of 
England are “listed," which 
means that they cannot be 
modernized, converted or 
extended without the 
strictest control by specialist 
officers from the Historic 
Buildings Commission. 
“Some people find that what 
they thought they wanted is 
not what they really want, 
because they cannot make 
changes," says Mr. StewarL 

A common problem is 
that old houses do not have a 
bathroom for each bedroom, 
which today’s buyers insist 
on. If the prospective buyers 
are prevented from remodel- 
ing the interior to create 
these extra bathrooms be- 
cause to do so would destroy 
period features, they tend to 
abandon the deal. 

By way of compromise, 
Mr. Stewart says, “upmarket 
developers are now building 
brand new homes in the tra- 
ditional styles, which com- 
bines all the advantages of 
both.” All, that is, except the 
history. M. B.-H-

names, no matter what they 
sold. At the same time, pro- 
tracted litigation has begun 
that will provide, al worst, a 
long stay of execution and, 
at best, relief for those 
names who manage to prove 
their allegations of fraud. 

“We now believe that the 
wall of properties said to be 
about to hit the market as a 
result of Lloyds losses will 
not materialize,'' Savills 
concludes. This is good 
news for agents, as such a 
“wall of properties” would 
have dragged prices down. 
The development is less 
good for prospective buyers. 

Another Savills finding is 
that in 1993, only 8 percent 
of vendors were selling 
prime property “to trade up 
or speculate," while 34 per- 
cent of buyers were buying 
for those reasons. Twenty

mon. The situation is so bad 
that some executives may be 
forced to live across the bor- 
der in Shenzhen, with an 
hour's journey into central 
Hong Kong for woik. 

Shenzhen is one of the 
most affordable cities in 
China for luxury housing, 
thanks to a current oversup- 
ply. Elsewhere in China. 
Western-style accommoda- 
tion is rare and rents accord- 
ingly high. In fact, exorbi- 
tant rental prices are forcing 
many multinational compa- 

Indonesia relaxing 
law on foreign 

nies to quicken the training 
of locals to replace expatri- 
ate managers. 

Many expatriate managers 
in China continue to live in 
hotels - especially in the 
main business centers like 
Guangzhou. Shanghai and 
Beijing - waiting while their 
names slowly rise to the top 
of lone residential waiting 
lists. When they do become 
available, "luxury” apart- 
ments in big Chinese cities 
fetch rents of $6,000 to 
$8,500 a month. 

The Singapore govern- 
ment recently announced a 
30 percent increase in state 
land released for residential 
development, hoping that in- 
creased supply will dampen 
speculation and escalating 
prices. Real estate has be- 
come the most popular form 
of investment, a momentum 
that has seen private housing 
prices appreciate 35 percent 

last year and 50 percent 
since 1992, 

According to Richard El- 
lis, the leading property con- 
sultant in -Southeast Asia. 
Singapore has witnessed a 
number of milestones in 
property sales in recent 
years. For instance, six of 14 
bungalows in the Ashley 
Green development sold for 
a whopping $3.8 million 
each on opening day. And 
all 159 units in the Rich- 
mond Park condominium 
project sold within two days, 
for prices ranging from $600 
to $780 per square foot 

. More than 16,000 new 
units are scheduled for com- 
pletion by the end of this 
year. But Jones Lang Woot- 
ton, another Singapore prop- 
erty consultant, does not ex- 
pect the flood of new hous- 
ing to bring prices down, 
with demand for the remain- 
der of the year still exceed- 
ing the 1 993 level. They pre- 
dict that rents may come 
down, however, as a result 
of tenants taking advantage 
of increased choice. Aver- 
age rents for luxury apart- 
ments in the Singapore area 
are presently running be- 
tween $6,000 and $7,000 a 

In Indonesia and Thai- 
land, the situation is some- 
what different, with demand 
still lagging behind supply. 
“The luxury-real-estate mar- 
ket is oversupplied in some 
sectors as a result of the 
massive building program of 
the late ’80s and early '90s,” 
says Simon Landy, associate 
director of Richard Ellis 
(Thailand). During this peri- 
od. average annual construc- 
tion figures jumped from 
40,000 to 1 10.000 units a 

year. Mr Landy feels that 
"demand fueled by in- 
creased domestic purchasing 
power is still very strong and 
has created opportunities for 
developers to plug gaps in 
the market." 

A typical 2,700 square 
foot single family unit in 
suburban Bangkok now- 
costs about $220,000. Cen- 
tral lv located luxury condo- 
miniums now range between 
$ 1 40 and $250 per square 
fooL slightly higher than in 
1993. when there was a dip 
in condo prices. 

Bangkok's upscale rental 
market is still dominated by 
foreigners, which means that 
regardless of the general 
supply situation, rent for 
good quality apartments re- 
mains high. 'Richard Ellis es- 
timates the average rental 
for a three-bedroom unit in 
the Sukhumvii area at 
$3,000 per monih. 

The reduction in foreign 
investment in Indonesia Iasi 
year put developers into a 
tailspin and prompted many 
to switch from large luxury 
developments to smaller 
units aimed at the burgeon- 
ing domestic middle class. 
The improved investment 
climate of 1994. plus the 
government's impending re- 
laxation of laws on foreign 
ownership of homes, may 
change the situation. 

According to property 
consultant Procon lndah. the 
average price of prime con- 
dominiums in Jakarta is 
$163 per square foot. Rents 
in prime areas range from 
$2,948 per month for a one- 
bedroom unit (867 square 
feet) to $4,610 for three bed- 
rooms (2.200 square feet).

Next Best Thing? Skiing and Surfing Near Tokyo 

By David Tracey 

T OKYO —After a hard afternoon 
skiing in a steel warehouse, 
there's nothing quite like relax- 
ing on a rubber beach. 

You can do both year-round at sites 
near Tokyo in one exhausting day or virtu- 
al fun. Say good-bye to driving snow and 
ice bums, forget about jellyfish and rip 
tides. Technology has provided what na- 
ture could not: consistency. 

Bui do indoor siding and pool surfing 
mean the demise of the slopes and the sea 
as we know it? WQ1 all our sports thrills in 
the future be machine-made? 

product of its snowmaking machines 

Without believing the hype you can stOl 
enjoy a fairly steep (20-degree) drop at the 
start of the "advanced” course. It’s 
enough to generate real speed, with a few 
moguls to attack or avoid, but the ran 
soon flattens out. You're then faced with a 
slow and boring cruise back to the lift and 
another two- minute ride to the top. Of the 

slope’s surprisingly long 490 meters (1,600 
feet), only the first 50 seem worth the 

You’ll hope not, after trying the indoor 
SSAWS Ski Dome in Chita and the Wild 
Blue Yokohama fake beach. But they 
aren’t as weird as you might think. With 
an open mind and a thick wallet, you can 
have a good time. 

F*- ^ 

The SSAWS Ski Dome (an acronym for 
Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, Snow 
and pronounced “zaus”) calls itself "the 
Nknbr AsdusiKT answer to the serious skier’s dream for 
year- round snow." It also calls the grainy 

trouble. Snowboarders are not allowed. 

The neighboring "intermediate” course 
features an easier drop (15 degrees) on the 
top section before joining the same gentle 
finish as the other. For authenticity it also 
sometimes features that staple of Japanese 
outdoor slopes — young women clustered 
to chat in the middle of the course. 

Although the skiing itself suggests the 
real thing on a mushy day at a tiny moun- 
tain, the indoor atmosphere is unsettling. 
Massive air-conditioning ducts on the 
ceiling enhan ce the idea that you're in a 
giant refrigerator. At the same time, just 
w alkin g into the glassed-in ski area, with 
the te m perature kept at a constant minus 

3 degrees centigrade (26 degrees Fahren- 
heit) even while Tokyo swelters through 
summer, can be a joy in itself. 

But not a cheap one. Two hours of skiing 
(which sounds short only until you've done 
the same quick run enough times to fed like 
a hamster on a running wheel) costs 5,900 
yen (about $60). Pay at the ticket booth and 
pick up a computes card to use for all 
transactions inside (including an extra 
4,600 yen if you need to rent equipment 
and riowear). The card is checked and your 
money extracted when you leave. 

It will never compare to being outdoors 
on a mountain, bur if you think of indoor 
skiing as a training facility for the real 
thing , it's not a tad idea. SSAWA Ski 
Dome is a two-minute walk from Minami- 
Funabashi Station, which is a 30-minute 
train ride from Tokyo Station. Homs are 
10 A. M. to 10 P. M. The phone number is 

pool like movie extras escaping a dnexnauc 
tsunami. Only those with sanctioned body 
boards are then allowed in the water. 

T HE main attraction at Wild Blue 
Yokohama, an artificial beach in 
an urban warehouse, is the Big 
Wave. Every hour an excited 
voice on the loudspeaker announces its 
impending arrival The swimmers dear the 

By surfing standards the meter-high 
wave is not exactly big. But it is fun, at least 
while it lasts. An easy takeoff leads to a 
dean 30-meter right before it doses out in a 
protective layer of white water that pre- 
vents customers from head-butting the Ear 
■waL Local hotshots use the four-second 
ride to stand up .on die body board, hit the 
Iqj, then finish whh a360 in the soup. -- 

Start ty jumping in behind, the break 
when lifeguudsgive you the O. K. Follow 
their directions along a guide rope toward 
the beach, but don’t catch the wave there. 
Paddle to thcleft wall for the longest ride. 
If you miss one, wait three seconds for its 
dent When you wash up on the rubber, 
get out and walk around to the jump-in 
spot again. 

The Big Wavecootinues far 20 minutes 
every hour; enough time for four ar five 
rides if the crowd isn’t too big. There are 
things to do when the waves go flat Five 
water slides will take you from the top of

The Lion King 

Directed by Roger A Uers and Rob Minkoff. 


The circle of life, as described in and borne 
out by “The Lion King,” is a cycle of 
evolution. Birth, growth, maturity, de- 
cline: nothing is immune to change, not 
even Disney animation. Taking its place in 
the great arc of neo-Disney classics that 
began with “The Little Mermaid,” “The 
Lion King” is as visually enchanting as its 
pedigree suggests. But it also departs from 
the spontaneity of its predecessors and 
reveals more calculation. This latest ani- 

mated juggernaut has the feeling of a clev- 
er, predictable product To its great advan- 

tage, it has been contrived with a spirited, 
animal-loving prettiness no child will re- 
sist Nobody beats Disney when it comes 
to manufacturing such products with bril- 
liance, precision and loving care. And 
films that lure the lunch-box set never lack 
for blatantly commercial elements. Still, 
the wizardry of “Beauty and the Beast” 
managed to seem blissfully formula-free, 
while “The Lion King” has more notice- 
ably derivative moments. “The Lion 
King" is about Simba, a cub who endures 
certain rites of passage before becoming 
ruler of his kingdom. In describing the 
classic hero’s journey, the screenplay adds 
a touch of Shakespeare for good measure. 
In addition to his noble father, Mufasa 
(with the voice of James Eaii Jones), 
Simba is also influenced by his delectably 
wicked unde, Scar (Jeremy Irons). This 
tale, with its emphasis on myth making 
and machismo, has no heroine. Nor does it 

Even With Dad.” The filmmakers have 
taken what should have been a foolproof 
idea — a neglected boy who blackmails 
his ex-con father into spending time with 
him — and thrown it away with a hack- 
neyed script and sluggish direction. The 
film should have been a roller-coaster 
ride; instead, watching it is like trudging 
through a swamp. Ray (Danson), recent- 
ly released from a California prison and 
newly employed as a cake decorator, is 
planning one last heist so he can buy his 
own bakery. The day before the robbery, 
his son, Timmy (Culkin), is dropped on 
his doorstep for a week by his aunt, who 
has been keeping him since bis mother 
died. What happens from then on is as 
fake and nonsensical as Danson's glued- 
on ponytail. Timmy hides the stolen loot 
and won’t reveal its hiding place until his 
father takes him to the aquarium, a ball 
game and other attractions on a long wish 
list. Timmy’s secret motive is to save his 
inept dad from being caught and sent to 
prison again. Both Danson and Culkin 
make the film' s predictable ending far 
more effective than it might have been. 
It’s too bad that the audience is likely to 
have grown restless long before then.

The Less Traveled Wine Valley of California 

By Frank J. PriaJ 

new York Times Service 

UlVv v* 

M endocino, California — 

Just beyond Cl overdale, at 
the northern end of Sonoma 
County. Rome 128 — just a 
country road, really — splits off from 
Highway 101 and wanders 60 miles (100 
kilometers) through Mendocino County 
to the sea. Most of the way it follows the 
little Navarro River through the Anderson 
Valley, one of California's least-known 
and most beautiful wine regions. 

As if by magic, a dreary succession of 
gas stations, fast-food places and used-car 
lots becomes a California of a different 
time and place. Here is a remote, rural 
California of quiet country towns, fair- 
grounds and wQdfiowers, verdant farms 
and tidy orchards stretching off to distant 
mountains, majestic redwoods and, final- 
ly, the cra ggy Mendocino coast and the 
cold, vast Pacific. 

And then there are the vineyards. 
Mendocino is often linked with. Napa 
and Sonoma counties when people talk of 
north coast wine, but it is just far enough 
north of San Francisco and Oakland — 
about 1 10 miles — to discourage most of 
the tourists who dog the highways and 
tasting rooms of the two lower counties. 

Rural and unspoiled, Mendocino is 
home to 30 wineries, the more established 
ones mostly in the eastern half of the 
county, where the Russian River rises, and 
the newer, smaller operations in western 
Mendocano’s Anderson Valley. All of 
these Offer tastings as well as tours of the 
wine making facilities, some by appoint- 
ment only. Allot at least two days for a 
relatively relaxed visit to the Mendocino 
wine country. 

There were grapes in the Anderson Val- 
ley as early as 1890, but wine wasn’t made 
commercially in the area until less than 30 
years ago. The first grapes were planted by 
Italian immigrants, along Greenwood 
Ridge on the western side of the valley, 
about 12 miles inland from the fog-bound 
coast The best growing area in the valley is 
stiB there, between the town of Philo and 
the redwood forest a few mBes west of 
Navarro. The vineyards roll bade over the 
hills, but the wineries are all within an 
eight-mile section of 128 running westward 
just east of Pinto. The red wine grapes grow 
best on the high ground, above the fog; the 
white wine grapes cm the lower slopes and 
valley floor. 

Husch Vineyards, which opened for 
businessin 1971, was the first in the valley 
since Prohibition. Kendall- Jackson, a big

John and Tim Rice are interjected at regu-

leavened with humor of the son that is a 
true Disney specialty. “The Lion King” 
counts on the wittiest group of voices 
Disney has yet assembled to advance its 
story, and together with a vibrant palette 
and grandly scenic African landscapes, 
these dements give the best of “The Lion 
King” a bright, energetic appeal 

(Janet Maslin, NYT) 

“I Love Trouble," a facile caper about 
rival newspaper reporters, is a lot like an 
Ikea bookcase: It’s easily assembled and 
stylishly utilitarian. This romantic thrill-

another of his grown-ups-are-idiots parts. 
As father and son, these two stiU have the 

crowd-pleasing charm many cynics have

stars are not the problem in “Getting 

two find that they have become targets of 
milk-poisoning bio-terrorists. When 
nearly murdered in the pursuit of the 
truth, the stars agree to a shaky truce and 
pursue the story together. Hereafter, the 
stakes rise, the plot snarls, the quips sub- 
ride and the rivals fall into each other’s 
arms. “I Love Trouble" is as bland as its 
title; which really should be attached to a 
Disney cat movie.

grapes north of Ukiah in 1958. The winery 
was opened in 1968. After he died in 1981, 
Ms wife and 10 of Ms 11 children earned

readied more than 2 miTfirm cases a year.

The vafley floor, which is subject to

-.for sparkling wines. In 1981 John Scharf- 
^fenbeiger came to the valley to establish 
Schaxffenberger Cellars. 

Louis Roederer, one of France's most

most important grape grower in the valley. 

A NOTHER winery, Handl^ Cel- 
lars, produces three vintage 
sparkling wines, a brut, a brut 
rest and a hlanc de tone. But 
MEfla Handley, whose winery this is, 
doesn't limit herself to sparkling wines. A 
onetime art student, she switched to wine 
and lata worked at Chateau St Jean in 
Sonoma and at nearby Edmeades before 
starting her own winery in the cellar of her 
home in PMlo. Ha first wine was a 1982 
chardoxmay made from grapes from ha

of Sonoma. 

Most wine making in the Anderson Val- 
ley is stiB a very personal business — 
much the way it was in the Napa Valley 20 
years ago- Even Roederer, where produc- 
tion is up to 60,000 cases a year, is small 
when compared with Robert Mondavi, 
which makes about 650,000 cases. In a 
good year, a small winery like Lazy Creek

P IENZA,.Italy — It’s three in the - 
afternoon. Outside tiie air is qm- 

et with the heal of early summer, 
the Tuscan landscape still green * 
and patched with poppies. Inside, 
around the long table set up in the cod 
of we stables, the conversation has 
reached a convivial postp randial peak as 
the last beer bottles are emptied. 

Stcfania, whose second chfld is due in a 

couple of months, bears away a pile of 
dirty plates, chipping into the hubbub of 
male voices with, comments of her own. ' 
This is stfll a voy dosed society where 
men rule tbe Gelds but not the roost For 
the young men who*ve just finished a huge 
lunch are Sardinian shepherds who have 
m ai n t ain ed their language and customs 
despite long years in central mainland' 
Italy: 77 continents as they 

Mariano, Stefania's husband, works as 
a share-crop farmer, getting up at five in 
the morning to milk 330 ewes with the 
help of a lad who learned the.ropes in 
Sardinia and hopes to set up on raown T 
(me day too. Only latte di pecoraf or 1 
sheep’s milk, is used to make the most 
famous Tuscan cheese: pecorino. 

Until about 15 years ago every small. 

fanner in Tbscany and 1 atinm made his 
own thee& tbmg. thistle flowers instead 
of rennet, to curate the milk. This gave 
the cheeses a particular flavor. However 
even- today’s pecorino is remarkably 
tasty, especially those produced around 
Pienza, where the sheep feed on wfciat is 
known as barbabecco (Tragopogon pra- 
tensts), a weed that grows on the Vai 
d’Oraa hillsides of southern Tuscany. 

When many Tuscans left their farm- 
houses after World War n to look for 
work in the cities, their place was taken 
by Sar dinian stepherds who had main- 
tatnedage-old traditions of cheese mak - 
ing oh their island. 

Sardinian pecorino is stronger and 

the nmvdieese makers had to adapt to 
local tastes and methods. Even if today's 
sheep’s milk is transported in huge stain- 
less steel containers and is filtered and 
sterilized to conform to all the requisite 
hygienic norms, the principles have 
changed fittle, 

A couple. of hours after rennet has 
bem added to the milk in the large vats, 
the'etnds are .removed and placed in 
wooden f Gains for 10 days or so until 

they become compact. They are washed, 
then placed on wooden shelves in a room 

kept at around 5 degrees centigrade (41 
degrees Fahrenheit). For three weeks 
they are turned over daily, until they are 
ready to be consumed as fresh cheese. 

If they are to be seasoned, then their 
rinds may be treated with oiL walnut 
leaves, wood ash or tomato extract to 
harden the outer part- A well-seasoned 
pecorino will be about six months old, 
and one suitable for grating on pasta or 
in minestrone, several months older. 

The Sardinians who make tbe cheeses 
that the Tuscans so proudly think of as 
their own have maintained a dose-knit 
society. Stefania speaks in Sardinian to 
her husband and to her 4-year-old son 
Walter. ‘‘As soon as Walter returns from 
kindergarten he’s out at the sheds with 
Mariano for the evening milking . Of 
oouise he learns Italian at school, but 
when he gets home it's our traditions and 
language that be lives with. The Tuscans 
wouldn’t want to be without us, yet they 
view us with difRA-nne I guess if s partly 
. because they can’t understand what we’re 
saying. But we’re islanders, you know. 
We're more cautious in getting to know 
people, but more reliable once we do.” 

Kate Singleton lives m Italy and writes 
frequently on cultural affairs. 

... .... 

Sardinian shepherds provide the sheep's milk for the Tuscan specialty.

Paris Dining: Tradition to ‘Fusion’ 

By Patricia Wells 

Iraenuaunal Haakt Tribune 

P ARIS — When you take good 
location, a modem sense of liveli- 
nes, and good food for the price, 
you’ve got a real winner. The six- 
month-old UApparf (short- for apparte- 
ment ) is just that, with its shiny wooden 
floors. Oriental rugs, walls lmed with 
books and a mismatched selection of gilt- 
framed mirrors. 

Just steps from the Champs-EIys&s, tbe 
restaurant has a chic, vibrant, spunky air 
with food that hits the spot. Give me half a 
kilo of greens and Tm happy any day. and 
L’Appart’s saiade maraSchere should sat- 
isfy anyone who’s half rabbit to tbe core. 

The tiny classic raviolis de Rayons have 
becomes staples in many of the’dty's bis- 
tros, and there's good reason why. Give 
people fresh pasta, a touch of cheese, and 
you’re sore to bring smiles to their faces. At 
L’Appart’, tbe tiny cheese-filled ravioli ar- 
rive steaming hot in a touch of stock. 

Other worthy offerings indude a platter 
of fresh cod (morue fratche) on a bed of 
creamy mashed potatoes, all served in a 
pool of rich beef stock; a duck carpaccio 
paired with a green salad, and a hot apple 
tart topped with a scoop of ice cream. 

While “fusion'' cuisine may make waves 
in other parts of the world, the French 
wrinkle their eyebrows rather quizzically 
at the thought of tampering with the sac- 
rosanct qualities of rather codified, tradi- 
tional French cooking. Yes, one does find 
an occasional Asian-inspired dose of lime, 
a pinch of curry, a leaf of coriander here 
ami there, but it comes on like a gentle 
breeze, not a gusty storm. 

One French chef who manages to wisely 
fuse classic French food with a touch of 
the Far East is Philippe Delacourceile, 
owner ctf Le Oos MoriDons. 

Delacourceile spent five years running 
various French restaurants in Asia, and 
returned to Paris with a changed palate as 
well as a new palette of herbs and spices 
with which to create his gentle alchemy. 

A recent meal there proved that one 
needn’t give up one’s French passport 
because one seasons a traditional pan- 
seared veal chop with ginger and lime, or 
adds citronnelk to a fricassee of sole. 
Quite to the contrary: Delacourceile' s “fu- 
sion” cuisine works because it's rooted in 
the French classics. 

His fresh lobster salad — with sweet 
and Havorful morsels of fresh lobster 
tossed with artichokes, a generous sprin- 
kling of fresh basil, greens and fresh, 
peeled tomatoes — was a delight, and a 
veritable bargain at 75 francs (about S14j. 
I loved as well the evening’s fricassee of 
turbot, a generous filet set on a thick bed 
of wilted spinach, all seasoned with a 
sweet, appealing dtronneDe butter. 

Chocolate lovers will adore his al] -choc- 
olate desserts, including dark chocolate 
infused with jasmine, and marriages of 
chocolate, thyme and citrus zest. As a 
lemon lover, I favored his quenelles fon- 
dantes de citron, basically a lemon tart 
filling shaped tike scoops of sorbet, served 
with Juniper-infused strawberries. 

It's now 21 years since Alain and Nicole 
Dutouroier came north to Paris from 
France's southwest, to find fame and for- 
tune with their country like restaurant Au 
Trou Gascon. 

The food at this temple of southwestern 

French cuisine is as good as ever, showing a 
true sense of maturity and not a grain erf 
boredom. The bargain 1 80-franc lunch and 
dinner menus allow diners to sample some 
of the best products of France's southwest, 
including platters of charcuterie, a stunning

with a jolt by Fi ns tem, to the 
uncharted sub-submicro scopi c 
territory ruled by “quantum 
gravity,” a law that pbyadsts are 
stfll struggling to formulate. 

Each set of rules transcends 
the one before it, “forcing tbe 
Universe to behave as it does,” 
says Thorne. Although his ma- 
terial is formidable there is 
nary an equation in sight, and 
an abundance of drawings and 
sidebars elucidate the- major 
ideas. But this work is not just a 
monograph on the theory of 
general relativity; it is an engag- 
ing and lucid history of black- 
bole research. 

Black boles are a natural con- 

sequence of general relativity, 
which views space-time as a 
flexible mar that a mass, such as 
a star, can bend and fold like 
rubber. More than half a centu- 
ry ago, a few researchers real- 
ized that if a dying star were 
heavy enough, it would collapse 
and collapse, carving a gravita- 
tional pit in the space-time can- 
vas so deep that no bit of tight 
ot matter could ever climb out. 
Kit nearly every enpert then, 
including Einstein, blanched at 
this ou tlandish notion. 

This deep skepticism didn’t 
diminish until the 1960s, when 
relativists took advantage erf 
work linked to nuclear- weapon 
development. Computer cooes, 
nsed to design hydrogen 
bombs, were adapted to mimic 
the implosions of stellar cores, 
and total gravitational collapse 
was shown to be inevitable. The 
noted Princeton theorist John 
A Wheeler helped abit, too: In 
1967, he gave the blade hole its 
distinctive moniker. 

A golden age of black-hole 
studies dawned. A black hole 
was not just a bottomless space- 
time pit; it had personality! 
Thome describes it with style: 
“A black bole should be able to 
spin, and as it spins it should 
create a tornado-like swirling 
motion in tbe curved spacetime 

around itself. Stored in that 
swiri should be enormous ener- 
gies, energies that nature might 
tap and use to power cosmic 
explosions . . . The horizon erf 
the big hole should pulsate in 
and out, just as the surface of 
the Earth pulsates up and down 
after an earthquake, and those 
pulsations should produce 
gravitational waves-npples in 
the curvature of spacetime that 
propagate out through the Uni- 
verse, carrying a symphonic de- 
scription <rf the hole.” 

The most speculative section 
of “Black Holes and Time 
Warps” — and also the most 
fascinating — describes the 
physics of wormholes, shortcuts 
through hyperspace to other 
reaches of the universe. 

“Black Hole and Time 
Warps” is a masterful and in- 
triguing work, an eclectic mix of 
challenging physics, firsthand 
insights and amusing anecdotes 
about the leading figures in 
gravitational research. “May 
real historians forgive me,” he 
writes, “and may nonhistorians 
thank me.” Thank you. Profes- 
sor Thome.

North Could Send Fuel Rods to 3d Country

Colony’s Textbooks Delete Mild References 
To Beijing Massacre, and Teachers Protest 


HONG KONG — Hong Kong’s Educa- 
tion Department has deleted references to the 
1989 Beijing massacre of democracy activists 
from a school history textbook, drawing pro- 
tests from teachers on Thursday. 

The offending passage of just 30 to 40 
words obliquely referred to the massacre fol- 
lowing student protests centering on Tianan- 
men Square as an “interference” and the 
“June 4 matter,” said Chin Chi-shing, vice 
president erf the Hong Kong Professional 
Teachers Union. 

Bat the Education Department overreacted 
by removing the entire passage from text- 
books to be used in the curriculum for 13- and 
14-year-olds, he said. 

Hong Kong's director of education, Domi- 
nic Wong, said in a statement that events of 

the last 20 years occurred too recently to have 
been subjected to proper historical analysis. 

“Twenty years is considered to be a reason- 
able minimum period,” he said. 

But Mr. ChiU Said the language 

textbook does mention other events of the last 
20 years, including a recent visit by China's 
paramount leader, Deng Xiaoping, to Guang- 
dong Province, neighboring Hong Kong. 

Mr. Chin said “we strongly object” to Mr. 
Wong’s “interference.” “No professionals 
support him. We think that he is too sensitive 
to the June 4 matters.” 

Hong Kong’s media is already being ao- 
cused of self -censorship — afraid to write 
articles upsetting China before the British 
colony reverts to Chinese rule in 1997. 

and for North 
eventually to make its nuclear 
program totally transparent. 
This is what South Africa did 
after it confessed to building 
several atomic bombs and 
agreed to sign the treaty to stop 
the spread of nuclear weapons. 
" The United States has asked 

list cf*^the wnditois North 
Korea must meet to fulfill its 

o bligatio n s the twarty and 

become a member of the agency 
in good standing 

At Geneva, the U.S. team 
will really be negotiating on be- 
half of press- 
es North Korea to give up its 
military midear program, be- 
cause the agency is charged 
with ensuring that countries 
that sign the treaty also respect 
its provisions. 

On the other hand, it is up to 
the Clinton administration to 
decide what it can realistically 

rial issue of the North’s secre- 
tive nuclear program. 

According to Yang Sung 
Ch oi, a political sdenoe profes- 
sor and a.leading authority on 
North Korea, the baric problem 
boils down to tins; “South Ko- 
rea wants unclear transparency. . 
North Korea wants to maintain 
nuclear ambiguity.” 

While there is same debate 
here over how hard Kim Young . 
Sam should press for answers-, 
on the Norm's nudear pro- 
gram, it seems dear that he can- 
not avoid asking the aged Com- 
munist dictator whether his 
country has an atomic bomb. If 
the answer is “no,” a presiden- 
tial aide said, the South Korean 
leader will then try to persuade 
Kim n Sung to verify it by 
agreeing to mutual inspections 
that would reveal Pyongyang's 
past nudear activity. 

“The government will seek to 
secure the North's nuclear 

day. Seoul especially wants to 
know what happened when 
North Korea shut down its 5- 
megawatt nudear research re- 
actor in. 1989 and extracted the 
spent fuel rods. 

“If the crucial North Korean M 
nudear. issue, cannot be re- r 
solved,” The Korea Times said 
in an editorial Thursday, “the 
resumption of inter-Korean di- 

alojpie is meaningless.’ 

North Korea, however, 
freezing its current nudear pro- 
gram is one thing , but revealing 
its “nudear past* is another. In 
fact, Mr. Yang said, the very 
idea is anathema for a leader- 
ship that bases its survival on 
keeping tbe country dosed to 
the outside world and thal 
views nudear transparency as a 
threat to national defense. 

Ambiguity about tbe bomb 
allows North Korea, to deal 
with South Korea from a. posi- 
tion of strength, notably when 
the talk taros to reunification.

fom Streets to School, a Rude Awakening for Gaza Youth 

By Joel Greenberg

GAZA CITY — Aiman Radi gave

"I turned in a blank page,” he said,

x. school days this year. 

Gaza’s high school seniors, part of a 

generation that led an uprising against 
Israeli occupation for more than six 
years, are experiencing an abrupt 
uv-'akening as they take these ail-lm-

of Palestinian police officers who ar-

Hardened street leaders and youths

r.vake up for lost time. 

Defying their elders and basking in 

an aura of heroism, they had seized 
authority during the uprising, enforc- 
ing strikes and work boycotts and 
leading mass protests. In schools, 
young toughs had intimidated teach- 
ers, ordering pupils out for demonstra- 
tions and organizing rampant cheating 
during the graduation tests to erase the 
cost of lost studies. 

The teachers, fellow Palestinians 
employed by the Israeli authorities, 
were powerless as they watched class- 
room standards erode. ■ 

Now, with the rebellion against Is- 
raeli authority over, there are signs 
that the generational revolt in Gaza 
may also be receding. The year-end 
examinations have become a proring

Israel has long stood fast 
against the right of return for 
Palestinian refugees. The peace 
accord may end hopes of many 
that they can actually reclaim 
iu.ids inside Israel lost in 1948. 

3ut it has also unleashed a 
torrent of hope among PaJestin- 
isr.s inside the territories that at 
iiast some people can return

-.pair that they would get any- 
thing tangible from peace, this 
'-.ope appears to be one of the 
pillars helping to sustain the

'-alcstinians here and in the 
‘.Vest Bank. 

The infusion of 4,000 Pales- 
tinian soldiers, many of whom 
had not set foot in Gaza and the 
West Bank since 1967, if ever, 
was a potent symbol of return.

Now, Mr. Arafat’s own re- 
turn from exile is another sym-

the West Bank and Gaza. 

But among Palestinians, 
much of tbe anticipation about 
his visit is focused not on the

The White House special

administration officials were 
“pleased by the independent

. FORT WORTH, Texas — 
Burlington Northern Inc. and 
Santa Fe Padfic Carp, said 
Thursday ..that they had 
agreed to merge in a transac- 
tion valued at $4.2 bffiion 

The deal would create the 
biggest railroad company in 
the United States, with tracks 
blanketing the country west of 
the Mississippi River. The 
proposed union must be ap- 
proved by the interstate Com- 
merce Commission and share- 
holders of both companies- 
- Santa Fe shareholders 
would receive 0.27 of a Bur- 
lington Northern share for ev- 
ery Santa Fe share and one 
share of Santa Fe Pacific Gold 
Carp, for every 1.7 Santa Fe 
■Pacific Corp. shares. 

■ Burlington Northern, based 
in Fort Worth, Texas, already 
is America’s largest railroad 
and specializes in hauling 
grain, coal, cars and timber. 

Santa Fe, based in Schaum- 
burg, Illinois, is a pioneer in 
mtennodal shipping, which 
involves hmimg merchandise 
in stackable containers. The 
combined company, to be 
called Burlington Northern 
Santa Fe Corp-, would en- 
compass a network of more 

than 31,000 miles of track and 
.dwarf the nexi-largcst net- 
work, owned by Union Padfic 
Corp. with its 18,000 miles. 

GexaM Gxinstean, dhainnan 
and chief executive of Bur- 
lington Northern, will be 
chairman of the merged com- 
pany. Robot Krebs, chair- 
man and chid executive of 
Santa Fe, win be chief execu- 
tive and president. The rail- 
roads will operate separately 
as the Burlington Northern 
and the Santa re Railway Co. 

“This merger will create a 
strong, new rail carrier with a 
diversified traffic base and ex- 
cellent financial prospects,” 
Mr. Krebs said. 

Mr. Grinstem said the two 
fines were largely separate, 
which was likely to speed gov- 
ernment approval erf the pact. 

The companies have not de- 
cided where the headquarters 
of the merged company would 
be and had no estimates of the 
number of employees that 
might be affected by the 
move, Linda Gustis, a Santa 
Fe spokeswoman, said. 

The two companies will 
continue to operate separately 
while regulators are reviewing 
the merger. (Bloomberg, AP) 

Crap, and Bell Atlantic Corp. 
said Thursday they would 
merge their cellular telephone 
operations, creating a system 
that would stretch down the 
American East Coast from 
Maine to South Carolina. 

They did not disclose terms. 

The combination allows the 
two regional Bell operating 
companies to take on deep- 
pocketed players in the cellu- 
lar business, such as MCI 
Communications Corp., Nex- 
tel Communications Inc., 
AT&T Corp. and McCaw 
Cellular Communications 

“This new company will fo- 
cus on the development and 
deployment of ‘anytimo-any- 
w here* capabilities across a 
broad market area,” said Ray 
Smith, chairman of Bell At- 

For customers, the deal is 
likely to accelerate price com- 
petition for making cellular 
calls over long distances, 
which now cost SI a minute 
and more. In addition, cus- 
tomers also are likely to get 
access to more calling features 
like voice mail and call for- 
warding as the competition 

intensifies to provide ad- 
vanced network services aver 
cellular systems- 

The combined company 
would have revenue of 
$1.2 billion, 1.8 million cus- 
tomers and 4,250 employees. 
Its service area will cover 55 
milli on people and will in- 
clude seven of the country’s 
top 20 markets. 

Bdl Atlantic wifi own 6235 
percent of the new company 
and Nynex will get the rest, a 
division reflecting the relative 
sizes erf their cellular units. 

Bell Atlantic and Nynex 
have been jointly operating a 
cellular system in the New 
York City area for 10 years. 
That system has the potential 
to reach 15 million customers. 

The deal comes as AT&T 
awaits regulatory approval to 
buy McCaw Cellular. 

At issue is the ultimate 
ownership of some cellular 
operations that McCaw — the 
country’s biggest celhilar- tele- 
phone company — co-owns 
with regional Bells. 

Under a 1982 consent de- 
cree that broke up the Bell 
Systran, AT&T is barred from 
acquiring assets owned by 
Bel) companies.

PARIS — Although economic growth, 
particularly in Continental Europe, is 
gathering strength, policymakers in the in- 
dustrialized nations were warned Thurs- 
day against becoming complacent, partic- 
ularly because European unemployment 
wifi continue to rise in the next 1 8 months. 

Even this modestly upbeat assessment is 
clouded by the sharp rises in long-term 
interest rates, the Organization for Eco- 
nomic Cooperation and Development not- 
ed in its semiannual Economic Outlook. 
These threaten growth prospects, especial- 
ly in France, Italy and some of the smaller 
European countries as well as Canada, the 
Paris-based economic forum said. 

Commenting on the agitation in curren- 
cy markets, Kamiharu Shigebara, the 
OECD’s chief economist, further warned 
that the yen’s appreciation risks weakening 
growth prospects in Japan, while the dol- 
lar’s fall risks fueling U.S. inflation. 

He called for “more effective articula- 
tion of dear co m mi tm ents to sound public 
finances and price stability and, where 
necessary, decisive corrective actions” to 
stabilize market expectations. 

“Recovery must be sustained,” the re- 
port said. Growth needs to be higher than 
the 2.6 percent average over the 

past two decades if the OECD economies 
“are again to become high -employment 
societies with steadily rising national living 

Its predictions are for overall growth of 
2.6 percent this year and 2.9 percent in 
1995, up from 13 percent last year. 

Despite substantial upward revisions to 
Continental growth prospects from assess- 
ments made just a month ago, the OECD 
projects European unemployment will 
continue to rise over the coming 18 months 
to 22.6 million, or 1 1.8 percent of the labor 
force, by end-1995 from the 22.4 million 
projected for this year. 

The OECD expects short-tram rates in 

Europe to continue declining. Three- 
month Goman rales, currently 5 percent, 
are forecast to be 4.6 percent by year-end 

See GROWTH, Page 14 

But the adminis tration de- 
layed for 30 days any action 
against Japan in a separate 
trade dispute involving that 
country’s public procurement 

U.S. Trade Representative 
Mickey Kan tor announced the 
decision, saying the delay in the 
Japanese case was warranted be- 
cause a new prime minister had 
just assumed office in Japan. 

The announcement on Japan, 
which had already received an 
earlier extension of the dead- 
line, reflected a change in ap- 
proach by the administration, 
which in recent days has soft- 
ened its rhetoric in an effort to 
calm jittery currency markets 
where the dollar has fallen to 
new lows against the yen. 

But in regard to China, Mr. 
Kantor said the administration 
would immediately ]*n pch an. 
investigation into allegations 
that Chm* had failed to proper- 
ly protect U.S. patents and 

US. businesses have con- 
tended that copyright piracy in 
China is costing them $800 mil- 
lion in lost sales annually. 

With the decision to launch a 
special investigation, the clock 
starts running on posable trade 
sanctions if the two countries

In Beijing on Thursday, Chi-

dramatic movements in the 
currency markets that have 
lifted the yen to record 
highs against the dollar 
constitute a yen crisis, rath- 
er than a dollar crisis, some 
senior U.S. officials and 
private analysts contend. 

They say that the yen is 
being pushed upward by 
Japan's continuing large 
trade surplus to a level that 
is causing serious discom- 
fort for Japanese industry. 
This view, which stresses 
Japan’s structural prob- 
lems rather than those of 
the United States; is one 
reason the U.S. Federal Re- 
serve and the Treasury have 
resisted calls to raise U.S. 
interest rates to shore up 
the dollar. 

Officials say the problem 
lies not with the dollar but 
with the yen. Analysts add 
that Japan is piling up huge

change that are not bring

The Bureaucrats Come Into Their Own 


By Repaid Dale 

hunatioml fferaht Tribute 

W ASHINGTON — The lead- 
ership of the industrial 
world is suddenly footing 
even more shaky. Japan has 
just appointed its fourth prune minister 
in a year and is headed for a long period 

erf political instability. 

The European Union has made a spec- 
tacular mess of appointing -a new presi- 
dent of the European Gomaiisstoa, and 
is obviously desperately short of the vi- 
sion needed to revive the European idea 
and urate the Continent 
In the United States, the latest polls 
show an increasing number of Ameri- 
cans viewing Prerident Bill Clinton as 
weak mid indecisive. And lack of confi- 
dence in his leadership has contributed 
to the latest plunge m the dollar. 

Anyway, the high noon of US. hege- 
mony is over. As -Treasury Secretary 
Lloyd Bentsen put it, “there isn’t cine 
country exfifafi the shots anymore.” 
Not even a combined heave by the 
Group of Seven industrial countries can 
push the dollar where it doesn't want to 
go. And when G-7 leadens gather in Na- 
ples next week for their a n nual summit, 
for all the pomp ami circumstance, they 
wifi exert little real influence on global 
events. ‘ 

The pace of change u> the wood econ- 
omy — faster than at any time sbye th e 
Industrial Revolution — is outstripping 
governments’ ability to deal with iL 
White businesses and financial markets

meat is sail confined to national or re- 
gional boundaries. 

The political disarray is making mat- 
ters worse. Japan’s political turmoil, for 
instance, is also contributing to the dol- 
lar’s problems and complicating at- 
tempts to resolve d amag in g trade dis- 
putes between Tokyo and Washington. 

In many countries, including Japan, 
Italy, France and Canada, traditional

parties have been unceremoniously bat- 
tered by disgruntled doctorates. 

But instead of interpreting aD this as a 
call for more inspirational leadership, 
most politicians have responded by tak- 

ing an even shorter term view — looking 
only as far as the next vote, the next 
opinion poll, the next economic statistic. 

The combination of shortsighted, lo- 
cally focused leadership and economic 
globalization is having a curious result: 
The international bureaucracies are 
canting into their own — at the politi- 
cians’ expense. 

The G-7 countries gladly delegated 

ies gladly delegated 
much of the responsibility for rescuing 
the Russian economy to the Internation- 
al Monetary Fund. If Russia overcomes 
its problems, more credit will be due to 
the Fund’s officials than to the G-7 gov- 

Unemployment is the worst political 
problem facing many industrial coun- 
tries, but the best work on it so far has 
been done by the bureaucrats at the 
Organization for Economic Cooperation 
and Development in Paris. 

The planet’s future prosperity wifi de- 
pend heavily on officials at the powerful 
new World Trade Organization due to 
start up next year. 

And in the European Union, it is not 
the national governments but the often 
wrongly reviled bureaucrats of the Euro- 
pean Commission who are producing the 
best ideas on bringing the Continent's 
two halves together. 

That makes it aD the more important 
to choose the right people to run these 
organizations and to ensure that the or- 
ganizations themselves work effectively. 

But it’s another sign of the times that 
the bureaucrats at the OECD arc making 
big efforts to modernize their institution, 
while the G-7 political leaders are bla- 
tantly failing to do the same for theirs. 
It’s not surprising that top politicians are 
increasingly competing for the best bu- 
reaucratic jobs. 

Of course, there is a limit to what the 
bureaucrats can — and should — do. In 
the West at least, they still receive their 
instructions from politicians. And their 
ideas need political approval 

But it is a sad comment on today’s 
leaders that many bureaucrats have a 
dearer vision of how the world is chang- 
ing, and how to tackle its problems, than 
their elected masters.

Bond Slide Casts 
Shadow on Stocks 

NEW YORK — Renewed 
weakness in the dollar and gov- 
ernment data showing econom- 
ic growth triggered a rout in 
Treasury bond prices that cast a 
pall over the stock market 

Hie price of the benchmark 
30-year Treasury bond plunged 
1 point, to 84 d/32, sending the 

U.S. Stocks 

yield up to 7.61 percent from 
7.51 percent Wednesday. The 
dollar's persistent weakness 
against the yen renewed senti- 
ment in the bond market that 
foreign investors would shy 
away from doUar-denominaied 

Government data pointing to 
moderate economic growth in 
May added to nervousness that 
inflation would rise, eroding the 
value of fixed-income instru- 
ments such as Treasury bonds. 
A jump in the prices-paid com- 
ponent of a regional purchasing 
managers' index and rising 
commodity prices added to 
those inflation fears. 

The stock market followed 
bond prices lower. The Dow 
Jones industrial closed down 
42.09 points at 3,624.96. Losing 
issues outnumbered gaining 

ones by a 4-to-3 ratio on the 
New Yoric Stock Exchange. 

Stocks sensitive to changes in 
interest rates, such as banking 
issues, were among the day’s 
worst performers. Higher inter- 
est rates make it more expensive 
for businesses to borrow money 
to expand and could drag on 
the economy, crimping corpo- 
rate profits, 

Norwest fell ! to 26%, while 
NationsBank lost 1% to 51%. 

Health maintenance organi- 
zations fell on concern that U.S. 
health care legislation could 
limit their profitability. United 
Healthcare dropped 3% to 44 Vi 
in active trading. Humana fell 
1% to 16%. 

Cyclicais were weak, with 
Deere losing 1% to 67% and 
General Motors falling % to 

Consolidated Papers bucked 
the downtrend, rising 2% to 
43% after the Wisconsin-based 
paper company was raised to a 
buy from a hold by a Morgan 
Stanley analyst, who died im- 
proved order levels in the coat- 
ed-paper market. 

UAL fell W to 127 after the 
airline, buffeted by scant inves- 
tor demand for a $765 miUion 
preferred -stock sale, had to 
modify its restructuring plan 
for the second time in two 
months. (Bloomberg, AP) 

YEN; Which Currency Is in Crisis? 

Continued from Page 13 
nese imports or by major in- 
vestments abroad. 

Currency markets offered 
some evidence to support that 
view Thursday, as the dollar 
strengthened slightly against 
the Deutsche mark, rising to 
1.5873 DM at the close in in 
New York from 1 J5870 DM on 

The dollar fell to another re- 
cord low, 98350 yen, on Thurs+ 

Foreign Exchange 

day before coming part of the 
way back to close in New Yoric 
at 98.465 yen. It closed at 
98.750 yen on Wednesday. 

For Japanese exporters, the 
yen's recent surge has created 
what the Japanese call endaka 
— meaning a strong-yen crisis. 
Profit margins have fallen as 
Japanese companies have tried 
to absorb the effects of the 
higher yen. 

Some analysts said the yen 
could keep rising until the Japa- 
nese government found a way 
to deregulate many sectors of 
the economy and encourage 
more imports, particularly of 
consumer goods. 

“1 think they are in serious 
trouble," said Barry Bosworth, 
an economist at the Brookings 
Institution who has studied the 
Japanese economy for several 
years. “There is too much non- 
sense being spread that this is a 
crisis of confidence in the U.S. 

The sharp rise in the yen's 
value this year coincided with a 
movement of investment capi- 
tal bad: to Japan from other 
countries, including the United 
States. In some cases, investors 
were seeking to take advantage 
of the possibility that the Japa- 
nese slock market would show 
larger gains than U.S. markets, 
where prices were 
others, the investors 
eluded Japanese-owned compa- 
nies in other countries — were 
sending money home to help 
the parent companies cover 

Against other currencies, the 
dollar closed at 1.3333 Swiss 
francs on Thursday, nearly 
steady from 13332 francs on 
Wednesday, and at 5.4425

GROWTH: Despite Outlook for Improved Growth, OECD Sees Risks 

Continued from Page 13 
and 4.3 percent next year because of de- 
clining inflation, which is seen at about 
1.75 percent by end- 1995. Yields on 10- 
year German government bonds are ex- 
pected to fall to 6 percent from around 6.9 
percent now. 

By contrast, short-term UJS. rates, now 
at 4J5 percent, are expected to rise to 5.6 
French francs, up from 5 .44-15- ^percent by end- 1995. Even with that, the 
francs. The pound dipped io OECD forecast “a mild but perceptible 
$13439 from $1.5458. upward drift" in consumer price inflation 

(WP, AP, Bloomberg) to 3J by end-1995, up nearly a point from 

early 1994. But 10-year UE. yields, cur- 
rently 7-25 percent are projected to stabi- 
lize at around 7 percent. 

U.S. growth is projected to slow from 
this year’s 4 percent to 3 percent next year. 
Nevertheless, growth “is likely to remain 
above its potential rate, reducing the un- 
employment rate below the 6.25 to 6.5 
percent level consistent with stable infia* 
don and'generatipg a modest acceleration-, 
in wages and prides.”* 

The report sees Japanese growth im- 

proving from midyear through end-1995. 
But it warned that upward pressure on the 
exchange rate could weaken prospects for 
a self-sustained recovery through an ad- 
verse impact on corporate profitability 
and investment ' 

The growth forecast for Germany is now 
IJ1 percent this year, up a full percentage 
point from preliminary projections made 
last month. This -results in a Europewid$ 
growth forecast of 1.9 percent up half. a' 
point from a month ago. Prospects for 
1995 have also been revised iq>. -

EU Insurance Industry Cracks Open 

But Some Countries Fail to Approve New Law in Time 

. . Bloomberg Bvstnas Neva 

FRANKFURT — After years of 
preparation and debate, European 
Union -regulations intended to open up 
Europe's Insurance industry axe sched- 
uled to take effect Friday throughout the 
12-oatko trading bloc. 

But there W31 be at least one excep- 
‘ tiao: the EUVbiggest member. Germa- 
ny has missed the deadline, and it may 
not be the only country, to do so. 

• 1 Die European Commissan said mem- 
ber countries bad to incorporate EU in- 
surance directives into domestic laws by 
Thursday, creating a single insurance 
market Germany's Parliament hasn't - 
approved the necessary legislation, audit 
isn’t scheduled to reconvene until next 

■ Insurance companies said they were 
uncosmerued by Germany's inaction, 
partly because they think EU directives 
take precedence over-national laws and 
partly because they don’t think the 
change wfflsignfficamty change the way 
they do business. 

At most it may now encourage innova- 
tive maiketmg that sefls poficies by using 
mass mailings or telephone soHritatiom 
instead of personal tales pitches. 

The European Commission, which is 
the EtPs executive branch, said it 
wouldn't know -untS next week just 
winch countries in addition to Germany 
had not met the deadline, or how late 
Germany might be. 

Jftrg Knospe, a spokesman for the 

German insurance association, said the 
legislation was “bound to be postponed” 
until at least the middle ot July. 

“It can't be debated until July 8,” he 
said. “If if s approved, it could come into 
effect as early as mid- July. If ifs defeat- 
ed, thereto a danger it could be delayed 
until after October’s elections.” 

Tins weald force the legislators back 
to the drawing board and could mean a 
delay of several years, he said.

“We’ve already started training bro-

Luxcmbomg- based subsidiary called 
Premier Life. “We’ve nyiric a strata '

But just what each company’s plans 
entail vary widely. 

German insurers, for example, will be 
under pressure to sell cheaper ami more 
flexible insurance policies once they are 

freed from a strict regime in which all 
policies and prices had to be approved 
by the Federal Office for Insurance Su-

encourage cross-border competition, but

their established bases. 

Direct insurance, as tbe process of

SEAT Asks Its Workers 

The Associated Fna • 

SA, the Spanish subsidiary 
of Germany’^ Volkswagen 
AG, has asked workers to 
accept a pay cut of 10 per- 
cent to make the financm&y 
troubled company more 

competitive. - - 

In a published statement, 
SEAT cited what it said was 
kw worker productivity and 
high production costs 
among the causes for its fi- 
nancial difficulties. ‘ 

SEAT, which YW bought 
from the Spanish govern- 
ment in 1986,' employed 
25,000 workers in its four 

-plants in northeastern Spain 
m 1992. Since then, layoffs, 
-eariy retirements and the 
transfer of one plant to VW 
have cut the work force to 
about 14£00. . 

The company's restxuo- 
■' winch has pro- 
massive ’"demonstra- 
tions and repeated strikes by 
.SEAT unions, foresees a 
payroll oT9,500'wuricrs by 
tfaeendcrf this year. 

SEAT said it must reduce 
wages to -adjust to market

Russia Extends Its Voucher Prograi 

Bloomberg Business News 

~ MOSCOW — The Russian 
government has extended by a 
month the validity of vouchers 
used in auctions of state compa- 
nies. ' 

-• Although the voucher pro- 
gram was due to end Thursday, 
President Boris N. Yeltsin 
signed a decree Tuesday allow- 
ing the vouchers to be used by 
workers to buy shares in then 
. companies until the end of July, 
said Alexander, Orfyonov, a 
Kremlin spokesman. 

The decree also gave the city 
of Moscow permission to use 
vouchers for saks of city assets 
until the end of the year. . 

Privatization vouchers were 

1992 with the aim of pio- 
neering the sale of most of the 
state sector and then the rest of 

the economy. Since then, thou- 
sands of companies across the 
country have been sold in 
voucher auctions, with inves- 
tors buying shares with the 
vouchers instead of with cash. 

Officials have bad little but 
praise for the voucher program. 

“Voucher privatization is 
probably the biggest economic 
reform in Russia,' 1 Alexander 
Knbishlrin, a parliamentary ad- 
viser, said. - 

A new program of selling 
shares for cash is to be delayed 
because of the voucher’s new 
lease on Hfe, said Larisa Cher- 
nyshova, a spokesman for the 
State Property Committee. 

About 136 million vouchers 
have been used in share auc- 
tions. In 1993, tbe government 
sold shares in more than 12,000 

small and medium-sized com- 
panies worth 113 billion rabies 
(S57 million). Miss Cherny- 
shova said. 

An additional 4,500 compa- 
nies valued 331 hflHon rubles 
will have gone on the block by 
the end of July, she added. 

Tbe voucher program has 
made fundamental changes in 
tbe Russian economy, accord- 
ing to Mr. Knbisbkm. “The 
market works now — there are 
no shortages anymore," he said. 

Irina Pinkovsky, an analyst 
at the London-based consulting 
co mpan y HUfe LtcL, said: “In 
the past, factory directors were 
responsible only for output, 
and they didn’t give a damn 
about profits. Voucher privati- 
zation changed that." 

Others add that in the new 

era, factories must produce 

higher-quality merchandise and 

take charge of their own fi- 
nances to stay alive. 

The voucher has almost never 
held toils 1 0,000 ruble face val- 
ue. Since its October 1992 intro- 
duction, its trading price baa 
ranged from 4,500 rubles to 
more than 100,000. 

Voucher ]»ice swings have 
made many investment funds 
and traders wealthy.

Abbey National 
Opens a Potential 
Banks 9 Price War 

Bloomberg Bluest News 

LONDON — Abbey Nation- 
al PLC fired the opening salvo 
Thursday erf what may escalate 
into a price war among British 

Copying the cut-price tactics 
of U.K. supermarkets and 
newspapers, the country's 
third-largest bank said it would 
halve the annual rate it charges 
customers on authorized over- 
drafts to 9.9 percent, effective 
Friday, its largest cut ever. 

Rivals such as National 
Westminster Bank PLC and 
Lloyds Bank PLC, which de- 
pend more heavily on consumer 
lending than Abbey, said they 
are now considering whether to 
lower their own rates.

Fallout From Yen’s Rise 

Is It Good News lor Asian Economies?

would sell nearly one-tilrd 
“ore personal computers in Ja- 
pan in the year ending in Man*' 
1995 than n did last year. 

The prediction comes a 

month after NEC and other top 
Japan ese electronics makers 
forecast that their profits in the 
year would average about 20 
percent higher than in the previ- 
ous year. That would be thetr 
Grst rise in three years. 

NEC projects it wffl sell 1.8 
unman personal computers in 
Japan tta yrar, up 31 percent 
from 1,370,000 last year and 
well above NECs original esti- 
mate of 1,520,000. The compa- 
ny has a 51 percent share of the 
personal computer market in 

mdnstry analysts say NEC is 
Kkehr to meet its new targets. 

“The PC market in Japan is 
definitely growing, which 
moans increased opportuni- 
ties,” said Kunihilr p Kawada, 
industry analyst at James Capel 
Pacific Ltd. But he said in- 
creased sales did not necessarily 
mean greater market share for 

NEC, because a bigger market 
also meant, bigger shares far 
NECs competitors. - - . 

Increased spending by Japa- 
nese businesses -and consumers 

will assure the growth in sales,

manager of NECs . penonal

Vietnam Looks to Vbrkers 

. . Cmptied by Oar Staff From Dbpzirba 

HONG KONG — Asian economies, 
weighing the g*™* and losses of the yen's 
-surge against the dollar, are looking for in- 
creased Japanese investment but also are 
bracing for higher inflation and slower eco- 

Analysts said Thursday that Japanese in- 
vestment in the region could grow as a result 
of the strong yen, but there might also be a 
slowdown in Japan’s domestic manufacturing 
. as companies shift production overseas, and 
the higher cost of imports from Japan could 
lead to more inflation and higher interest 
rates across Asia. . 

The jury is sfiH out, however, rax who could 
win or lose on the yen's strong move. South 
Korea sees greater market share for its prod- 
ucts, while Taiwan hopes to attract Japanese 
complies. Malaysia expects increases in 
technology transfers, the Phflippiiies fears 
loss of foreign investment, and Australia is 
worried that Asian growth may slow. 

Apart from its surge against the dollar in 
recent days, the yen also hit a historic high of 
12.26 South Korean won Thursday. The won 
is basically lmkeH to the dollar and has been 
Sx^Seen 80520 and 814.60 to thedoOar 
since the beginning of the year. 

Same economists in Seoul are predicting 
windfall gains in Sooth Korea as doUar-de- 
nominated products became cheaper overseas. 

“South Korean automobiles, steel, semi- 
conductors, shipbuilding and possibly petro- 
chemical products are expected to be big 
gainers from the strong yen,” said Ohn Ki Un 
of die state-financed Korea Institute for In- 
dustrial Economy. 

But the strong yen also means higher im- 
btQs. South Korea depends heavily on

HANOI — Hoang Thach Ce- 
ment, one of Vietnam's largest 
cement producers, will make 
history Friday when it issues 
Vietnam's first corporate bond 
to raise an initial 50 hfnfrwi 
dong ($4.5 nnQion). 

The state-owned company 
awiwi to thrive an nationalistic 
fervor. “You won’t find any for- 
eigners, consultants or techni- 
cians around . here," says 
Nguyen Van Hanh, director of 
Hoang Thach Cement ; 

“This company was built 
with domestic capital and run 
with local experti s e," said Mr. 
Hanh, dressed, Hre all other of- 
fice workers, in blue trousers 
and a while shirt complete with 
the company logotype of a Hon 
with its paw on a bag of cement. 
- Mr. Hanh said high- technol- 
ogy e quipmen t from Denmark 

was the only overseas contribu- 
tion, and. management at 
Hoang Thach deariywould Hke 
to keep it that way. 

“It is the policy of our gov- 
emment to mobilize the savings 
of the people,” Mr. Hahn raid. 

Vietnam, is moving from a 
centrally planned to a market- 
based economy and needs an 
estimated S50 billion to fond its 
. eco n om ic transformation by 
200ft. While foreign investment 
win be the main source of capi- 
tal, Vietnam is counting rax rais- 
ing a substantial portion from 
- domestic sources. 

Mr. Hanh predicts that at 
least 2D bflbori dong of the 
bond issue wlB came horn em- 
ployees. “We are offering the 
woricers a discount on cement

also has a huge trade deficit with Japan that is 
sure to worsen, if the yen stays strong. 

Higher import costs are also a problem fra 
Taiwan, with the strengthening yen expected 
to force up prices and fad inflation, said 
I Jang Cheng-chin, vice chair man of the Tai- 
wan C-ramrii for Economic Planning and De- 
velopment. Taiwan's manufacturers rely 

heavily on Japan for raw materials and pans. 

But Economy Minister Chiang Pin-kung 
said a decHning dollar could bring benefits to 
Taiwan industry. 

“The drastic jump in the yea will push 
more Japanese enterprises to shift their oper- 
ations abroad,” Mr. Chiang said. “It’s time 
far the island to woo Japanese investment." 

In the Philippines, analysts said the weak- 
ening of the dollar, particularly against the 
peso, could force expraters to close up and 
drive foreign investment away. 

- “The fact is a lot (^exporters, especially in 
the garment sector, are closing shop now” 

The jury is still out on who 
could win or lose in the yen’s 
, strong move. 

said Sezgjo Qrtiz-Luis, head of -the Philippine 
Exporters Confederation. 

In Sydney, economists said the strong yen 
could delay Japan’s recovery by raising prices 
of its exports; that in turn could depress 
Japanese demand for imparted raw materials, 
and Japanese demand is important to Austra- 
lian exporters. 

“The extra strength in the yen could poten- 
tially cut off emerging Japanese economic 

r rtfa, and that wm have an impact across 
region,” said Brace Freeland, an econo- 
mist at Commonwealth Bank of Australia. 

Malaysia, however, sees only a silver lining. 
Ramon Navaratnam, a former government 
economist now chief executive of Bank 
Btrruh, a commercial bank, said the rise of the 
yen was “a blessing in disguise, as it will 
ultimately result in cost-conscious Malay- 

In Singapore, though, some analysts see 
severe consequences if the dollar’s slide re- 

“If the U.S. dollar falls by too great a 
margin, it will eat into the profit margins of 
many a company in the world that trades in 
dollars,” Alex Chng of Alliance Securities 
said. (AFP, Reuters) 

China Feels Pressure From Yen Loans 

Bloomberg Business News 

BEIJING — The yen's recent appreciation 
has raised China's debt burden and made 
Japanese i mport s more expensive, the official 
rhfna Drily newspaper reported Thursday. 

During the past month, the Chinese yuan 
has faBen 5.7 percent against the yen, track- 
ing the 6.1 percent decline in the dollar's 
value against the Japanese currency. 

“First Of all, the rising yen is increasing the 
pressure on China to pay back Japan’s gov- 
ernment loans in yen,* the China Daily 
quoted Shi Yongbai, president of China's 
internatio nal Trade Research Institute, as 
saying. - 

... Between 1979 and August 1993, the Japa- 

nese government provided China with 1.7 
billion yen in loans, worth about SI 0.9 billion 
at previous prevailing exchange rates, the 
paper said. 

But the yea's rise, coupled with this year's 
depreciation of the yuan against the dollar, 
has pushed the value of those loans up by 
about 55 percent to $17 billion, the paper 

“So, in addition to interest, China has to 
pay a further $6 billion," the China Daily 

Japan has said it will discuss ways to allevi- 
ate pressures on China brought about by the 
rising yen, Mr. Shi said.

move aimed at curbing infla- 
tion, Bank Negara on Thursday 
raised the amount of money 
banks must keep as reserves at 
the central bank for the third 
time this year, further limiting 
funds available for lending. 

The statutory reserve require- 
ment for commercial banks, fi- 
nance companies and merchant 
banks will rise one percentage 
point Friday, to 1 1 5 percent of 
their eligible liabilities. 

The Malaysian central bank 
said it had ordered the change 
to slow monetary expansion 
and keep inflation in check. 

Malaysia's broad measure of 
money supply, M-3, rose at an 
aiumai rate of 2L8 percent for 
die first five months of the year. 
Bank Negara said. 

Higher reserve requirements 
reduce the amount of money 
banks can lend from their own 
funds. The resulting reduction 
in credit is expected to restrain 
the supply of money and thus 

Malaysia 's -•»nnnalw’ftH infla- 
tion rate measured 3.7 percent 
in May, down from 3.9 percent 
in April. But in the first five 
months, inflation was 43 per- 
cent annually, compared with 
Bank Negara’s target of 4 per- 

The higher reserve require- 
ment is expected to absorb 
about 2 billion ringgit ($768 
million) from the money mar- 

The bank raised the reserve 
requirement to 95 percent on 
Jan. 3 and to 203 percent on 
May 16 to mop up excess li- 

Bank Negara’s decision to 
switch to a lighter monetary 
policy also indicates (hat the 
central bank may be planning 
for the ringgit to continue its 
recent weakening. 

In allowing the ringgit to fall 
further, the central bank may 
be trying to chase speculative 
foreign funds out of Malaysia. 

Inflows of speculative for- 
eign funds this year were a ma- 
jor factor in the fall of Malay- 
sian interest rates. Short-term 
money now costs around 43 
percent a year, compared with 
an average of 6.4 percent in 
January. (Knighl-Ridder.

Philippines Suspends Tax 

The Associated Press 

MANILA — The Supreme 
Court on Thursday indefinitely 
suspended a tax law one day 
before it was to take effect. But 
President Fidel V. Ramos said 
the tax should be given a chance 
to work. 

The court voted 11 to 4 to 
issue a temporary restraining 
order after several citizens’ 
groups questioned the constitu- 
tionalityof the expanded value- 

added tax law. which is similar 
to a sales tax. It set a public 
hearing for next Thursday. 

Since Mr. Ramos signed the 
law May 5, there have been 
complaints that prices of prime 
commodities had suddenly in- 

The new tax was expected to 
distribute tax more equitably 
and to result in an additional 
8.3 billion pesos ($310 million) 
in annual tax revenue.

Braves’ Smoltz Beats Expos, and Homers Send Ballplayers a Copy-Right Letter 

The Associated Press 

John Smoltz was well rested, 
and that meant trouble for the 
Montreal Expos. 

Smoltz, returning from an 
eight-game suspension for hit- 
ting New York’s John Cange-

runs as Atlanta ended a four- 
game losing streak and regained 
a 1 14-game lead over Montreal 
in the NL East The Expos had 
scored 15 runs in the first two 
games of the series. 

“I used the time off wisely,” 
Smoltz said. “I worked diligent- 
ly but didn’t overwork myself. I 
was in a good mindset, knowing 
Td only have one start in 10 
games. I didn’t have to worry 
about the Phillies, didn't have 

to wony about the Mels. I just 
concentrated on Montreal. 
Pitchers don't usually have that 

“This wasn't a make-or- 
break series for anybody.” said 
the Braves manager, Bobby 
Cox. “But you certainly don't 
want to get swept.'* 

Smoltz said he used the 10 


days off to recover from various 
aches and pains. 

“1 felt great today." he said. 
“1 wouldn’t say 1 had my best 
slider, but 1 kept them off-bal- 
ance. I haven't felt this good 
with my fastball in a long time." 

He allowed an unearned run, 
struck out seven and walked 

Prior to his first at-bat. in the 
third inning, Smoltz said, he 
told teammate Dave Gallagher 
that he was going to swing at 

the first pitch, no matter wfaat.

Gallagher told me, ‘Great strat- 
egy,’ ” Smoltz said. 

It was his third homer in the

Jackson held visiting Florida to 
four hits over eight innings and 
Doug Jones gained his league- 
leading 20th save in Philadel- 
phia. Kevin Stocker scored one

Astras 3, Reds I: Kevin Bass

recently received a letter from their own- 
er. “Love, Marge Schott.” she signed it 

Players for the Oakland Athletics re- 
ceived a letter from the chairman of their 
team. “Very truly yours, Wally Haas," he 
signed it 

The owner of the Florida Ma rlins 
wrote to his players, too, but opted for 
the more info rmal, “Sincerely, Wayne.” 

To say that these owners and the other 
25 wrote to their players is not literally 
correct. They sent their players letters 
with their signatures, but they didn't 
write the letters. ' 

• That is, they didn’t write than unless 
they all had the same exact thought and 
wrote the same exact words. 

The form letter was provided by the 
Player Relations Committee. Addressed 

to each player individually by first name, 
■the letters began: . . ' 

“Enclosed is ■ a memorandum -Jrona. 

. Dick Rayitch, the owners;’ chief nqgotia- 

• we- mad^L^ymir nnion ^on ^ne°M! 
Because T believe that the current round , 
of bargaining is crucial to both sides, I 
have decided to ccnnmunicate to . you 
directly , the terms of the proposal we 
gave to the umon." . ■ 

Tbeletter goes on to say tbat"“commu- 
nications can be difficult'' because own- ' 
ers and players are “spread across the 

Then each owner purported to say: 
“For instance, I have read statements 
indBcating. that, under our proposal, 
four- and five-year players would have 
less bargaining leverage than they do 

Did the -owners themselves actually 
read those statements? Probably only if 
their labor negotiators .included the 

statements in a package with the form 
letter they were told to send to their 
■players under their names. 

' The letters are so identical, that in the 
tirird paragraph of each, the word “each” 

u Il is my hope,". each owner said -in 
conclusion — and collusion? — “that 
you will stay fully informed on .the im- 
portant matters at issue in these labor 
negotiations- so that you will be able to 
make decisions that are fair to you but 
also, in the best interests, of baseball. 1 
.will kpep you posted on the progress of 
the tuigotiatigns,"- 

- As the ‘dinching gunmidc on these - 
personal letters, the alleged authors had 
.their secretaries' type, then imtials as the 
person; who wrote or dictated the letter. 

. Except HWH and WJH didn’t write 
-the letter. \

other executiye or lawyer wrote- it.

In NBA Draft 

By Clifton Brown 

New Yori. Times Service 

Robinson wore No. 13' in col- 
lege. but this time, his. number 
was I. 

As expected the Mil waukee 
Bucks selected Robinson with 
the first pick in the National 
Basketball Association draft 
Wednesday night • 

The 6-foot, 8-inch (203<enti- 
meter) forward was one of 20 
college juniors who declared 
themselves eligible for (he draft, 
and there was little question 
that he would be the No. 1 pick 
from the moment he decided to 
1 enter. The Bucks never serious- 
ly considered trading the No. 1 
? pick, although they had numer- 
ous offers. Robinson was the 
' man Milwaukee wanted. 

He was the college player of 
the year at Purdue, averaging 
3CL3 points to lead the nation in 
scoring. The Bucks, who fin- 
tished with a 20-62 record la st 
season, hope he will join Vin 
“ ' i on the front line to lead 
team back torespectabfl- 

eoby Arkansas. Hill and Joe 
Damars will become the nude- 
us the Pistons hope can lead 
them bade to being a contender. 

better than 

jeed about the pressure of 
jeSng the first pick, Robinson 
said: “In one respect, it’s bad 
because people are going to ex- 
pect for me to do more than 
what 1 can do." 

With the second pick; the 
Dallas Mavericks took Jason 
Kidd, a 6-fqot-4 point guard 
from the University of Califor- 
nia. There was predraft specula- 
tion that the Mavericks might 
nuke a late change and select 
Grant HQ1 of Duke. 

But Kidd had an impressive 
workout with the Mavericks, 
who needed a point guard after 
trading Derek Harper to the 
New York Knicks m January, 

guard in the^lraft. KidtMias 
extraordinary passing drills and 
court vision, along with quick- 
ness and excellent size tor a 
point guard. Ou Isa de shooting is 
the biggest question mark con- 
cerning Kidd, but the Maver- 
icks are bopihg his jumper im- 
proves quickly with hard work. 

With Kidd, Jim Jackson and 
Jamal Mashbuxs, the Maver- 
icks have three young players 
who should keep them from be- 
r j the worst team in tbe league 
i? the third consecutive -sea- 


: “It’s going to be exciting to 
pass to Jimmy, Jamal and Sean 
Rocks and hopefully Roy Tar- 
pley,” said Kidd. “My idol is 
Magic Johnson and only Magic. 
I've looked up to him and treed 
to follow in his footsteps. I 
know that's a hard thing to do, 
but I really patterned my game 
after Magic.” 

HiD was chosen third, by De- 
troit, which looked like a major 
break for the Pistons. Many 
scouts believe that HID, a 6-8 
swingman from Duke, is the 
best player in the draft. Cer- 
tainly, Hill is among the most 
versatile. He can play three po- 
sitions — small forward and 
both guard spots, and Hill is 
also a superb defender. 

Just as important. Hill is a 
winner. He played on national 
championship teams in 1991 
and 1992, then led the Blue 
Devils to the National Colle- 
giate Athletic Association tour- 
nament championship game 
this year, where they were

tions on me, when I can just go 
out and pfay, 7 ’ IED said Td 
like to ihmk I’ll play '^iTi for- 
ward, but f do a little of every- 
thing.” ... 

The top nine picks went as 
most scouts expected ~ Robin- 
son, Kidd, Hfll, DonyeJl Mar- 
shall at No. 4 to the Minnesota 
Timberwdves; Juwan Howard, 
No. 5 to the Washington Bul- 
lets; Sharone Wright, No." 6 to 
the Philadelphia 76ers; La- 
mam! Murray, No. 7 to the Los 
Angeles Oippfcrs; Brian Grant 
No. 8 to. the Sacramento King s, 
and Eric Mbntrpss; Na 9 to the 
Boston Celtics. 

The biggest predraft trade ru- 
mor was that the Chicago Bulls 
would tracLe Scottie Pippeu and 
W 21 Perdue' to the Seattle Sa- 
lomes in exchange, for 
lwn Kemp, Ricky Kate and 
Seattle’s first-round pick, the 
1 1th of the drafL/But that trade 
did not materialize, as the Bulls 
' apparently decided that trading 
tneir AD-Star forward would be 
too mnch of a gamble. 

The New Jersey Nets made a 
surprise pick at No. 14, select- 
ing Ymka Due, a 7-1 center 
from Nigeria, New Jersey was 
expected to draft a shooting 
guard, and Dare only played 
two seasons for George Wash- 
ington University, leaving after 
his sophomore season. But 
while Dare win be a project, tbe 
Nets felt they needed help at 
carter, where Benoit Benjamin 
started last season. 

The New York Knicks used 
the second of their two first- 
round picks to select Charlie 
Wand of Florida State with the 
No. 26 choice. 

Ward, who won the Hrisman 
Trophy last season as the best 
college football player in the 
nation, was the quarterback: at 
Florida State. He was bypassed 
in the National Football

ed Wednesday.. 

Tbe Chicago Sun-Times, citing an unidentified source, said

Jordan was traveling with the Barons, a Ch ica g o White Sox 
farm team , and could not be reached for comment

Who Are These People? Old Passions Bubble Up in the i Melting Pot 

By Bill Plaschke 

Las Angela Tuna Soviet 

LOS ANGELES — Who are these peo- 

That is the question we have asked our- 
selves. rime and a gain, during the often 
HayyJing first roun<T of the World Cup. 

We have asked it while watching a crag- 
gy-faced Irishman weep. 

We have asked it while watching a 
young Mexican drape a red, white and 
green flag around his shoulders and begin 
singing in the middle of a crowded subway 
car, a song carried up to the street by 

We have asked it while standing amid 
hundreds of Argentines underneath the 
stands at Foxboro Stadium in Massachu- 
setts. Their country had defeated Greece 
an hour earlier, yet they refused io leave, 
beating drums and bouncing on the con- 
crete, anfhrn i s tumbling from their mouths 
Him Sunday morning hallelujahs. 

Who are these people filling our major 
stadiums with this unrecognizable passion? 

In a World Cup that has so far thrilled 
fans, delighted advertisers and surprised 
skeptics, this is the question that domi- 

Who are these people? 

After spending a week being jostled 
around upper decks that feel like foreign 
lands, we have come to a conclusion that 
should not surprise, but does: Mostly, 
these people are us. 

They are waiters from New Jersey, stu- 
dents from South Dakota, nannies from 

They are U.S. residents and citizens who 

came here from other places for education 
and opportunity. They have paid our taxes 
and fought in our wars. 

But they are people with long memories, 
people with roots we sometimes do hoi 

Certainly, several thousand fans at each 

game are foreign tourists, having flown 
here from distant ports for a chance to 
cheer in their countries’ major sport. 

We were prepared for them- We knew 
we would be playing host to 5,000 Irish 
from Dublin, 20,000 Brazilians from Rio. 
not to mention all that Saudi royalty. 

But what we forgot were the 60,000 Irish 
from New York. And the thousands of 
Greeks from Boston. 

And the Italians from Providence, 
Rhode Island, who have lived here 25 years 
or more, yet stOl tremble upon, hearing the 
national anthem of their homeland. 

We forgot that this melting pot in which 
we live sml contains thick, rich chunks of 
international passion. 

We forgot about Norma Cornejo. 

It was midway through the second half 
of the game between Argentina and 
Greece. The stands in Foxboro Stadium 
were fuIL But some of the most heartfelt 
cheering was coming from outside the 
front gates. 

There, in a spitting rain, her face pressed 
against a fence, was Cornejo. Behind her, 
crowding for a better look, stood three 

Through the chain link, between the 
heads of security guards, they could see the 
game being played on the big-screen video 
scoreboard at the far end of the field.

live sml contains thick, rich chunks of 

They could not afford to pay scalpers 
$250 a ticket. But that didn’t stop them. 

“We can see a little of the game, we ran 
fed the crowd, it is Huwgh,” Cornejo said. 

Cornejo works for a stock brokerage in 
New York. Her family has been in the 
United States for 2Iyears, more than half 
her life, yet she still stays awake past 2 
A M. to watch the Argentines play soccer 
on S pamsh - l an gnag e television. 

She took two vacation days for the long 
drive to Massachusetts, a tnp that fell just 

And that ominous pack erf teens? 

They began chanting, earnestly; “Ar- 
gcn-tin-al Ar-gen-tin-a! 

T live in the United States. 1 love the 
United States,” said Christina Urrutia, a 
recent immigrant who teaches in Colum- 
bus, Georgia. ■ • ’ 

She patted her heart over her orange; 
poncho. “But the flag of Argentina wiU 
always live hi hoe,” she said.

Her family’s cheers could barely be heard 
above the noise of trash removers and golf 
carts and passing cars. A group of teenage 
boys gathered behind them, laughing. 

But then Diego Maradona, the national 
icon, scored in the 60th minute, and those 
cheers become screams. 

The Cornejo family hugged and danced 
in the rain and swirling trash. Two other 
women from Argentina, one of them a UJ5. 
resident, joined the celebration. 

Then those six people, standing outside 
a stadium in a country that knows little 
about soccer, began singing an anthem.

Diego Maradona in Dallas: An early good-bye to 

SOCCER: Maradona Is Suspended in Drug Use 

CbnfrnM from .Page I 

eras news conference in Dallas, the FIFA 
secretary, Sepp Blatter, held up a form 
submitted by the Argentine team doctor 
listing ah Maradona’s medicine. Blatter 
said none of the five banned substances 
were on the Ssl 

Tensing the incident “a human, moral 
issue and not only a doping issue,” Blatter 
told reporters: “You will be the judges of 
the competition and it is up to you to 
decide if the case of Maradona now found 
guilty of doping is a real harm to the 
competition or not** 

Toe suspension — only the third for 
drag abuse in 15 World Cups — was an- 
nounced hoars before Maradona was 
scheduled to make his record 22d appear- 
ance in the World Cup finals against Bul- 
garia in Dallas. Argentina has already 
qualified for the first round. 

Because Maradona was the only player 
involved in breaking the rules, Nigeria 
cannot protest its 2-1 loss to Argentina, 
which preceded the random drug test of 
Maradona last Saturday. Both of Argenti- 
na’s goals were scored by Claudio Canig- 
gia, who recently served a 13- month ban 
tor cocaine use: 

Ephedrine has long been a controversial 
drug. A UjS. swimmer, Rick DeMont, bad 
to give up his 400-meter freestyle gold 
medal at the 1972 Olympics when he tested 
positive for ephedrine, which was an ingre- 
dient in his athsma medication. 

The Argentine Football Association 
president, Julio Grondona, argued that his 
team captain had used a nasal spray before 
the match Saturday because he was not 
fee&ng wefl. 

Grondona said that Maradona had been 
given the medicine by his personal physi- 
cian, DanidCerrini, and had not informed 

the team physician. Dr. Ernesto Ugalde. 

Grondona said that Maradona hed re- 
ceived the medicine from a member of his 
personal entourage, Daniel Cerrini, and 
had not informed the team doctor. 

“He was amateurish and negligent," 
Fernando SignorinL Maradona's personal 
physical trainer, said of Cerrini. 

Grondona insisted Maradona had not 
taken it as a stimulant, and the team physi- 
cian of Sweden, Jan Ekstrand, appeared to 

“1 don’t know the real circumstances, 
but I think this is a case of mistake-dop- 
ing, 11 Ekstrand said. “Ephedrine is such a 
mud form of doping, its effect can be 
argued. I’m not sure that it has such a 
strong effect. There is a large difference 
between ephedrine and planned doping 
with anabolic steroids.” 

Epbedrine is said to mimic the effects of 
adrenalin, increasing blood pressure and 
heartbeat, and dilating the pupils of the 

“These drugs do affect the central ner- 
vous system,” d’Hooghe said. “They cause 
a mild stimulation and increase physical 

Maradona was at the team hotel in Dal- 
las as the suspension was announced, ac- 
cording to Grondona. It was not known 
whether he would accompany his team- 
mates to the match Thursday night. 

Technically, Maradona was withdrawn 
from the Worl d Cu p by Argentina on 
Thursday before FIFA could suspend him. 
Pablo Abbatangelo, secretary of the Ar- 
gentine federation, told a Buenos Aires 
radio station that the decision was reached 
“to avoid further sanctions that could 
compromise the team.” 

FIFA said it would decide Maradona's 
punishment after the World Cup final July 

After almost three miserable years fol- 
lowing his suspension for cocaine use, 
Maradona was called back to international 
soccer when Argentina was humiliated at 
home, 5-0, by Colombia last fall. He lost 
an enormous amount of weight in very 
little time, then led Argentina through a 
two-game playoff against Australia to earn 
a place in the 24-team World Cup finals. 

In two first-round victories here, he 
scored a sensational goal and was captain- 
ing Argentina to its best performances 
since 1986. Thanks to Maradona's rejuve- 
nation, oddsmakers had ratal Argentina 
as the likely finalist against tournament 
favorite Brazil. 

Ranked second only to Pete among the 
game's greatest players, Maradona ap- 
peared now to be fully integrated with 
Argentina’s dashing attack, rescuing its 
dreadful image from the team which 
played so negatively while reaching the 
1990 World Cup finals, and redeeming his 
own reputation as welL 

The coach, Alfio Basil e, bad been calling 
bis team “one of the great Argentinian 
sides.” Diego Simeone, the 24-year-old 
midfielder, had been predicting^ “With 
Maradona with us, we are capable of any- 

And Maradona had boasted, “Now they 
can stop talking about what we think of 
Brazil, and start asking Brazil what they 
think of us." 

Maradona was seen waving and grin- 
ning to fans as he boarded the team bus at 
a Dallas hotel Wednesday on his way to 
the team’s final first-round training session 
at the Cotton Bowl. Rumors of his positive 
test drew a swarm of reporters to the 
practice, but he appeared oblivious to 
them as well 

His teammates, according to Grondona, 
had yet to hear the news. Only after the 

team was gone did Grondona reveal that 
Maradona had flunked the drug test. 

This is only the third doping scandal in 
15 World Cup finals. 

Maradona’s suspension created a sensa- 
tion everywhere, it seemed, except in the 
host country, which was televising live 
opening-day coverage of the preliminary 
trial of OJ. Simpson, the American foot- 
ball star accused of murdering his former 
wife and her friend in California. 

Internationally, Maradona's suspension 
is matched only by the positive drug test of 
Ben Johnson, the Canadian, following his 
world record sprint to the 100-meters gold 
maial in the 1984 Olympics. Jolmson was 
stripped of the gold medal and the world 
record. His comeback ended with a life- 
time ban for using performance-enhancing 
drugs in 1992. 

A routine FIFA lest in 1991 found 
traces of cocaine in Maradona's system 
while he played for the Italian club Napoli, 
resulting in his 15-momb ban. He has not 
returned to Italy since fleeing in April 
1991. He is currently on trial in absentia in 
Italy for drug trafficking. 

FIFA helped manage his transfer from 
Napoli to SeviUa of Spain in 1992, but his 
comeback there ended miserably in less 
than one season. He moved to Argentina 
and Newell's Old Boys, where he was fired 
for not training. When reporters came to 
interview him at his house. Maradona fired 
an air rifle at them. 

Eight years ago in his prime, Maradona 
was an incredible blend of speed, ingenuity 
and desire. In coining back one more time, 
Maradona had hoped to convince the 
world to think of him as a champion. That 
will only be half of the memory — he goes 
down now as the most self-destructive 
champion soccer has ever known.

Drugs and Maradona are more linked 
than is at first apparent He was weaned on 
them even before he knew it Scurrilous 
men in his past, so-called doctors, mixed 
Steroids with his food to build a frail phy- 
sique into something bull-like. 

In his teens, he was administered more 
drugs. These, the appalling painkillers that 
sporting authorities incongruously allow, 
racked and distorted the ankle, the knee, 
the suffering back of a superstar whose 

nudtinnlHon-doIlar transfer fees and **»] - 
hon-ddllar salary were the excuses to patch 
him up, to push him through nature's 
warning, to play him on half a leg. 

That was the sport's administrators ex- 
tracting their pound of flesh, the doctors 
obeying them rather than medical propri- 
ety, the body at the center of it all building 
up a legacy of arthritic pain. 

And the mind of Maradona? I don’t 
believe he ewer grew up. As a man-child, he 
could create from fantasies what logic 
might riissuade lesser talents from even 
attempting: trying to beat whole defenses 
an his own. 

. He was on the brink of competing in his 
22d World Cup finals match. A record, 
surpassing the 21 each played by Germa- 
ny's Uwe Seder and Poland’s Wladislaw 
Zmuda But perhaps Maradona's 21st 
World Cup match, his 90th in intemationr 
al competition, should be struck off. For if 
itwas drag-assisted, that represents cheat- 
ing, a crime against the sport. 

Maradona’s interpretation of the word 
cheat is different from yours and mine. He 
had grown into the most evocative cry of 
. the Argentine soul since Evita Perdu, and 
he had been put on a pedestal by the 
nation's head of state, Carlos Sadi Menem. 
That is not conjecture. President Menem 
told us this himself when he flew to Milan 
for the last World Cup and bestowed on 
his little boo the honor of “ambassador to 
aH the worldof sport.” 

Men era’s generosity backfired. When 
Maradona fled drug charges and a paterni- 
ty suit in Naples, Menem welcomed him, 
suffered the indignity of Maradona's fur- 
ther arrest for cocaine abuse and traffick- 
ing in Buenos Aires, and still gauged pub- 
lic opinion to be that Maradona should 
escape the law and not go to prison but be 
rehabilitated by presidential decree. 

Maradona thanked him with a vile 
tongue. He courted a future in Fidel Cas- 

tro’s Cuba, then in Japan, then the United 
States. Each door was closed to him. 

Yet, when Argentina’s national team 
was bumbled by the 5-0 thrashing from 
Colombia in Buenos Aires last fall, Mara- 
dona got his foot back in that door. Fat 
though he was, prone to shooting pellets at 
journalists, rumored to be far off course 
with his clinical rehabilitation program, he 

It was a flash, of the old genius, a flicker 
of the old flame, that created the goal by 
which Argentina drew, 1-1, in Sydney, and 


thus was able to win the reprise of

month for this World Cup. And we waited. 
Those of us. who knew the history had 
mixed emotions. We wanted to see one 
more time the breathtaking speed, the 
movement and balance that can take over 
a game as quickly as a bullet takes a life. 
Rationality told us that no man shms 
down this quickly and retains bodily 
strength for a World Cup that would soon 
become a dud in the sun. 

Maradona is not, never was, rational. 
His volatility had spanned five World 
Cups. In 1978, without lacking a ball, he 
sent an undercurrent of discontent seeth- 
ing through his homeland: Dieguita, little 
Diego, crying aloud against being left off 
the national team by C&ar Luis MenottL 

Menotti, the Argentine coach, knew 
even then that the 17-year-old was a prodi- 
gy beyond compare. He left him off the 
team because he considered the pressure 
might crack a teenager; Maradona to this 
day feuds vengefully with MenottL 

The coach was right, and wrong. Cer- 
tainly Maradona proved four years later 
what a talent he possessed, and also what a 
tempestuous immaturity. He disgraced Ar- 
gentina when he was sent off for ticking 
Brazil’s Batista in the groin. 

Foot years cm; Maradona, the captain, 
led Argentina to World Cup triumph in 
Mexico. Triumph blessed with his oersonal 

trade mark, with goals against England 
and Belgium that do other player on earth 
would have dared attempt, much less bring 

Yet there was also in that 1986 World 
Cup the Maradona as cheater, the player 
who had scored with his hand and de- 
scribed it as “a little bit the Hand of God. a 
little bit Diego Maradona.” 

The blasphemy achieved the highest ex- 
oneration on earth when Pope John Paul 
subsequently blessed Maradona. But after 
the running sores of Argentina's brutal 
1990 World Cup campaign in Italy, after 
the claim of his bastard child, after the 
notorious company Maradona kept with 
the Neapolitan criminal gangs, the Camor- 
ra, the Vatican newspaper condemned this 
maligned sporting idol. 

He was disowned elsewhere, too. Visit- 
ing Villa Miseria Fiorito, the shantytown 
where Maradona was bora and raised, I 
was stopped two years ago by an old wom- 
an wbo called out: "Forget Maradona, he 
forgot us.” 

He had revisited the barrio just once, in 
the victorious aftermath of the 1986 tour- 
nament. He had walked the muddied street 
of his birth, seen the stinking swamp at the 
top of the road where his father worked in 
the boneyard of an animal carcass con- 
cern, stood on the street corner where his 
skills, including the Hand of God tech- 

T e, were honed. 

y days in Villa Miseria Fiorito sug- 
gested it to be a happy but sad and simple 
place. A community that survived by any 
means it could, where the children roamed 
free and where the rights and wrongs of a 
more formal and privileged upbringing 
were blurred. 

This neither excuses nor serves as an 
explanation for Maradona. For there, as 
everywhere he has gone, he was a one-off. 
Uniquely skilled, untamed, unquestioned. 
A boy who bypassed boyhood.

The crackdown on rough play in the 
World Cup has led a 45 percent increase in 
yellow cards with four first-round games 
left, according to statistics released by 

The governing body’s general secretary, 
Joseph Blatter, said Wednesday that 126 
cautions had been handed out in the first 
32 games, compared with 87 for the 36 
first-round games in Italy in 1990. 

Five players had received red cards, 
bringing automatic expulsion from a game 
and suspensions to follow, while two other 
players had been expelled for accumulat- 
ing too many cautions. Comparable fig- 
ures for 1990' were unavailable.

An analysis of the 74 goals in the first 28 
matches shows an amazing spread of scor- 
ing times, with no true hot spots. 

The first 15 and last 15 minutes of an 
average game each produced 1 1 goals, or 
14.9 percent of the total. The 46ih to 60th 
and 61st to 75th minutes each produced 13 
goals (17.6 percent each) and minutes 16-

he said. 

“If the people who are up there in the 
top places are doing it for the game and 
not for making a quick buck, itU succeed,” 
he added. “If they are doing it to make a

In order to obtain players with Europe-

to purchase their contracts from the Euro-

“They have to come up with the mon-

and what they mean to their

Coach Bora Milutinovic, 
while careful to praise Brazil, is 
equally quick to add his . own 
spin, saying that anything can 
happen. Mjhitmovic does not 
want his players to hold their 
Brazilian counterparts in such 
awe that they abandon confi- 
dence in their ability. 

“The more low-key we are 
about our opponents, the better 
h is," forward Roy Wegede 
said. “Once you start thinking, 
‘They’Ve got this great player or

ically, subconsciously down- 
plays your own confidence. 

“It’s good for ns not to know

do a little bat of homework and

But to be in awe of them or fear

are the best team m this tourna-

Said Ramos; “We definite^ 
don’t want to have too much 
rtspect, but we have to know 
what we’re up against. Brazil 
right now is probably the team 
that has played the best in mis 
World Cop. It’s good to have 
aspect for the other team, but 
lowing that if we play our best 
and we defend well, and we 
have a little bit of luck, maybe 
Brazil win have a bad day and 
we can win- Wty oot?" 

Ephedrine: A Common Drug Often Misused 

Los Angeles Times Service 

LOS ANGELES — It can lurk in the 
most innocent cold medicine, herbal tea 
or nasal spray. It is very common, but for 
an athlete subject to drug testing, it can 
very dangerous. 

It is ephedrine — a component in 
many over-the-counter cold medica- 
tions. It is classified as a stimulant and 
considered by the international govern- 
ing bodies of many sports to be an illegal 
perfonnance-enhanang drug. Increas- 
ingly, ephedrine is at the center of many 
thorny legal and ethical battles regarding 
drug testing and athletes. 

The problem with the drug stems from 
its potential for dual use: Taken as medi- 
cally indicated, ephedrine is an effective 

antihistamine and can offer relief from 
some cold symptoms. Taken in large 
doses or in its pure synthetic form, 
ephedrine can act as a powerful stimu- 
lant that some sports officials consider to 
offer a competitive advantage. 

Stimulants have long been on banned 
lists for Olympic athletes and FIFA's list 
of prohibited substances is nearly identi- 
cal to the International Olympic Com- 
mittee's, It was an Olympic atiuete, Rick 
DeMont, who first brought the ephed- 
rine problem to light. 

DeMont, a U.S. swimmer in the 1972 
Olympics, had taken asthma medication 
before a race. The medication registered 
as a stimulant during drug testing and 
DeMont was forced to give up his gold 
medal in the 400-meter freestyle. 

In track and field, the problem resur- 
faced a few years ago. After a spate of 
random drug tests that revealed ephed- 
rine, officials in the sport struggled to 
determine a mechanism that would sepa- 
rate “inadvertent use” by athletes treat- 
ing colds, and deliberate use as a perfor- 
mance enhancer. 

Track officials also considered the is- 
sue of whether ephedrine, even in large 
amounts, was truly a stimulant that 
would benefit an athlete. 

Discussions are ongoing and little has 
been resolved. 

Soccer, however, has seldom dealt 
with epbedrine and its sometimes con- 
fusing uses, although FIFA has a strong 
stance against drug use.

Nigerians May Protest 
Defeat by Argentina 

Agence France- Prase 

BOSTON — The harshest 
reaction to Diego Maradona's 
banishment Thursday from the 
World Cup came from Nigeri- 
an soccer officials, whose team 
was beaten by Argentina in the 
match after which the drug test 
was administered. 

Exneka Omeruah, the chair- 
man of the Nigerian Football 
Association, said Maradona 
should be sent home in dis- 

"If any player on my team 
look drugs he would be ban- 
ished home and would have his 
name expunged from football 
forever," Omeruah said. 

“The team is involved with 
drags all through,” Omeruah 
said of the Argentine squad, 
which beat the Nigerians. 2-1. 

Claudio Caniggia, who has 
only recently returned from a 
13-month ban for cocaine use, 
scored both Argentina’s goals 
against Nigeria. 

Omeruah said the Nigerians 
would hold a meeting of their 
technical committee before de- 
ciding whether to protest the 
outcome of the match. 

“We don’t want to rush into 
things,” said Omeruah, but be 
did not rule out a formal pro- 
test to FIFA over Maradona. 

Maradona returned to com- 
petition in 1992 after serving a 
15-month ban for cocaine use 
while with the Italian club Na- 

The Nigerians' Dutch coach. 
Clemens westerhof. said: “I 
have great respect for Mara- 
dona as a player, but no sym- 
pathy. Why should 17 

“When you come to a tour- 

nament you abide by the rules, 
or you get into trouble." 

Italy’s players, who could 
face Argentina in the second 
round, had mixed emotions. 

“It makes me very sad.” said 
Gianfranco Zola, who played 
with Maradona aL Napoli and 
took over his No. 10 shirt when 
he was suspended for using co- 
caine. “This World Cup meant 
everything to him. His reputa- 
tion was on the line." 

The Italian goalkeeper Luca 
Marchegiani had hoped that 
FIFA would be lenient. 

"I hope this can be sorted 
out without them taking disci- 
plinary measures,’’ he said 
soon after the announcement 
about the test results. "We 
don’t want to play Argentina 
without its best player." 

"I feel sorry for Diego," said 
Roberto Baggio, the player 
who has come nearest to emu- 
lating Maradona's genius on 
the field. “I know he will be 
attacked endlessly by the 
press. But all that is secondary 
compared to his problems with 

His teammate, Paolo Mal- 
dini, said the decision was only 

“Those are the rales. Every- 
body knows them and they 
have to be applied,” he said. 

Germany's captain, Lothar 
Matthaus said it was “a terri- 
ble blow for football and for 

Jurgen Klinsmann. Germa- 
ny’s top scorer here with four 
goals, said he had been pleased 
to see Maradona playing so 
well again. 

"It’s really upsetting.” he

Epidemic of Activism 

By Russell Baker 

N EW YORK — In May I 
became aware of the dis- 
turbing new ism that is loose in 
America. It is activism. 

Activism must have been 
pa uing its roots down for sever- 
al years because it was in full 
Muom when I first noticed it in 
fact, activism and activists — 
oeople who believe in the doc- 
trine of activism — had become 
.-■« commonplace in the media 
;.i communism and commu- 
.ists had been back during the 
Cold War. 

Had I detected a new menace 
..f which hardened investigative 
reporters were still unaware? I 
Hogan collecting media refer- 
. ices to activism and activists. 
^r,d had a trankful in a jiffy. 

What's astonishing is the tre- 
.nendous variety of forms that 
activism now takes and die 
.-.any shapes in which these cu- 
rious activists come. A man pic- 
; jied berating the governor of 
Florida in the May 16 issue of 
U. S. News & World Report, 
.or instance, was identified as 
an "angry ecoactivisL” 


From the story I deduced 
.iiai an “ecoactivist" believes in 
the doctrine of “activism" to- 
ward or about ecology. Consid- 
ering what’s happening to the 
world, this seems very likely to 
make him an “angry ecoacti- 

An. even more extraordinary 
iind was the “equitation activ- 
ist” who popped out of The 
Washington limes. A man of 
*.he Virginia horse country, in a 
Times interview, spoke of one 
. f his three daughters. She was, 
he said, “the strongest equiia- 
: . n activist" of the three. 

Is the horse world now un- 
dermined by a doctrine of “eq- 
uitation activism”? What is 
“equitation activism" anyhow? 

The Washington Times also 
reported on “pro-life activists” 
conducting a sit-in. Sitting-in 
i=ems more passivist than activ- 
ist, but activism can apparently 
take many shapes, including 
simple relentlessness. 

TTius a cover picture on the 
magazine U. S. A. Weekly iden- 

tifies Edward James Olmos as a 
“relentless actor-activist." 


Even high -brow publications 
are not above joining the com- 
mon press in seeking out and 
exposing activists. Thus The 
New York Review of Books for 
May 19 identifies a man in a 
1907 photograph as “the Jewish 
activist Alexander Braudo,” 
and The New Yorker of June 6 
identifies Sir Isaiah Berlin as, 
among other things, “an activist 
in Jewish affairs.” 

A New York Tunes story 
about the new Supreme Court 
appointee. Judge Stephen 
Breyer, reported not only that 
he had been praised by “com- 
munity activists,” but also that 
he seemed better fitted for the 
work than “a more abrasive ac- 

“Student activists," “anti- 
abortion activists," “AIDS ac- 
tivists,” “conservative activ- 
ists,” “liberal activists” and 
“civil-rights activists" were a 
dime a dozen, of course. Some- 
times you could guess from the 
context of (he story what distin- 
guished these hackneyed old 
“activists” from people who 
were not “activists,” but report- 
ers often seemed to use the “ac- 
tivist" label to outwit their edi- 
tors when they didn’t quite 
know what people did or 
couldn't possibly describe it 

A Washington Post headline, 
for instance, referred to “Cali- 
fornia Activists.” Their activ- 
ism aimed at stamping out 
smoking, not stamping out Cal- 
ifomi a/** Hundreds of activists” 
turned up in a Post obituary, 
referring to people who worked 
in the campaign to register 
blacks to vote in Mississippi in 
the 1964 “Freedom Summer." 

“Activist celebrities” makes 
me suspect that the writer 
thinks celebrities ought to stick 
to their scrapbooks and leave 
the real world to real “activists" 
who know what “activism" is 
really about. These would be 
the “activism activists,” I sup-

A Page a Day Keeps

serenity in small, 
books” that are proliferating in the inspiration and 
self-help sections of American bookstores. 

The little paperbacks turn up in secular and reli- 
ous bookstores alike, featuring short, upbeat re- 
lections meant to be taken a page a day through the 
year. Their titles aim at all mann er of readers — 
men, women, parents, brides, the overworked, the 
sexually abused, former smokers and many others. 

The pocket-size books, about S10 each, with 200 
words or fewer per page, are portable, relatively 
cheap and a very quick read. 

Readers swear by their value. 

Anne Morgan Baker, an Atlanta museum official, 
said she was given ‘’Meditations for Women Who 
Do Too Much ” by Anne Wilson Schaef. as a gift 
some time ago. 

“I consider it something to center me at the 
beginning of the day, to give me some focus for 
whatever transpires on a given day,” she said. 

That book is fairly typical of the genie. The theme 
for July 4, for example, is self-esteem. There is a 
brief, opening quotation, in this case from Rebecca 
West: “People call me a feminist whenever I express 
sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat or a 

The meditation follows, beginning. “When a 
woman believes that she is equal, she is called 
uppity.'’ And the page closes with this final thought. 

Dcnd Sutw-OTT 

in boldface: “Battering comes in many forms. My 

self-esteem is constantly assailed, yet it’s really mine 
when I get right down to it.” 

Since 1990. when the book was published, it has 
sold about a million copies, according to tbe pub- 
lisher, HarpeiCbUins. 

Robin Seaman, an associate marketing manager 
for HarperCollins. called the book an unusually high 
seller in a genre in which she estimated individual 
tides often sell in the tens of thousands of copies. “1 
think they do very well overall," she said, but added 
that the market was becoming saturated. 

Another meditation book reader is Phil Lane, 43, 
who sells trees to Miami landscapers. ‘Tve got a 
couple that I use just to get myself on track in the 
morning, just to plant something in my min d every 
day,” he said. 

Leroy McBean. an assistant manager for Colise- 
um Books in Manhat tan, recalled directing a woman 
who had just lost her job to meditation books that 
specialized in handling stress. 

Readership of these books represents a spiritual 
practice outride the bounds of organized religion 
, said Robert Wuthnow, 
iceton University and 
“Sharing Ihe Journey" fFree Press), a 
study of support groups. “I think this is really a very 
significant phenomenon," he said. 

The Reverend Bobbi Patterson, associate chap- 
lain at Emory University in Atlanta, said meditation 

books appear to be more popular among women 
than men, at least on that campus. 

Use of the books “has some echoes with the old, 
daily prayer rituals, but in a contemporary form,' 
she stud. “Mi ’ ‘ 1 


care very 

trust levels about traditional forms of prayer or 
liturgy are very low." . 

Daily, inspirational readings have a long bistory 
in Americans' spiritual lives. In earlier generations, 
when the Bible might have been the only book in the 
house, families marked their days by reading a 
scriptural passage aloud. Many, still -do. 

Even that bamt may be on the rise, albeit with a 
twist Devotional Bibles, combining a daily Scrip-, 
tine with advice on how to apply it to everyday life, 
are on the best-seller list of the Christian Booksellers 
Association, an international trade group that repre- 
sents Christian retail stores and religious supply 


“I think there is a whole new wave of renewed 
interest in a devotions! life, a life of meaning,” said 
Bill Anderson, the association's president. “Some of 
this is driven by people of Christian faith who want 
to increase their personal level" of religious experi- 
ence, he added. 

Still, many in the current crop of meditation 
books owe as much to the “recovery movement,” 
which has drawn millions of Americans into “12- 
step" groups based on tbe methods used by Alcohol- 
ics Anonymous. Since 1990, AA has published its 
own meditation book, “Daily Reflections," which 
has sold about 750,000 copies, said a spokeswoman 

for the group, 

Also driving the market is a broad and growing 
fascination with all things spirituaL The recovery 
boom of the 1980s led to a spirituality boom of, the 

*90s, and meditation books serve as “a touchstone 
for people,” said Leslie Johnson-Byrae,. a trade 
markf^ngmainagg -al the Hazielden Foandation. the 
Center City, . Minnesota, operator of alcohol and 
drug; treatment centers ana publisher ot recovery 
literature. ^ - 

Three Hazdden meditation books bave sold mere 
than a milli on copies each, the. foundation says. 

For some, buying daily meditations is an act of 
impulse. Gregory LecJditner/a 43-year-dd Miami 
psychologist, saw the spiral-bound “Thoughts from 
the Scat of the Soul” by Gary Zukav, a meditation 
that is designed like a small, desktop cal e nda r , and 
snapped it~up; “I’ve set itiup on my-dresser and I’ve 
tried to put d as part oTmy routine of, getting nad y 
for work in the morning," he said. . . 

Some people buy the books to give to others. Sam 
Gunder, an actor in Manhattan, said he purchased 
one for a friend. “We're a nation" of battered .people 
and we’re looking for comfort;" he SakL“I t’s not that - 
these books by themselves will help you, but if you are 
ready to accept what they’re saying, they can be great 
hdp.” i. - ^ 

wd»*^owsoch a routine. “They just kind o^focus 
you,” said Linda Boyd, 31; a saleswoman at the 
Lutheran Gift and Church Supply in' Houston who 
prefers bocks with a Christian orientation. “Especial- 
ly in the evening, they hdp you to quiet down. In the' 
morning, it helps you keep aware of what is critical.” 
Will meditation books have a staying power with 
their current audience? Not everyone stays hooked. 

Saudi St rombcr g, a receptionist at the G G. Jung 
Educational Center in Hqustqn,said she used to read 
a daily meditation in the evenings, after putting her 
two children to bed. “It kqpt me centered," die said. 

But she added: *T think you outgrow them. I guess . 
Td rather read a book.”
