UbO SUCih formal ul timatum to the fuiHtary 

junta, ordering them to leave or risk an 
invasion by a certain date, despite the 
request try die U.S. ambassador to Haiti, 
Wufiam Swing, that he be given the au- 
thority to do so, officials say. 

The adminis tration has debated, bnt 
failed to agree on, authorizing a covert 
program by the Central Intelligence Agen- 
cy to sow dissension among the military or 
finance the departure of the country’s 
three top military leaders, the officials add. 

Moreover, there is no consensus among 
Mr. Qm ton’s national security advisers on 
how much longer flic United States should 
g|ve the stringent economic sanctions to 
work before it moves to an invasion. 

The dqraty secretary of state, Strobe 
Talbott, for example, argued strongly in 
recent interagency meetings that American 
credibility was at stake and that there had 
to be a change in government by the end of 
the year at the latest, even if it took an .

Pan of the problem in the administra- 
tion’s d«fj«arm-TTv>krng is that the tension 
between Mr. Clinton's desire to do what he 
nail* the. “moral” tiring has dashed with 
political reality; another part of the prob-

punitive measures an the military only in 
stages. The result is a policy that seems to 
shift with every new development at home 
or in Haiti.- - - 

Mr. Ointon’s decision on May 8 to end 
the practice of forcibly returning Haitians 
intercepted at sea came after he told aides 
that he could no longer continue a policy 
that was “making Haftans choose between 
being, drowned at sea or having their faces 
cut off on land.” ' 

But the administration estimated that 
only hundreds of Haitians a day would try 
to seek refuge in the United States; when

South Africa’s Newest Headache: Drugs

Governments Lose Clout 
In New Monetary Order 

By Carl Gewirtz

PARIS — Mare than a decade after 
governments began liberalizing and dereg- 
ulating financial markets, a new monetary

question: Are the governments fast be-

Clinton Vows 
To Warsaw: 
No Weil of 


But Poles Are Skeptical 
Of Promise of Inclusion 
In Integrated 9 Europe 

By Douglas Jehl 

New York Times Sernce 

WARSAW — President Bill Clinton of- 
fered a message of reassurance to this 
capital in the heart of Central Europe on 
Thursday with words, gestures and a token 
gift of aid intended to display his hope thai 
all of Europe might soon be knit with 
economic and security ties. 

But Mr. Clinton’s overture, made in pri- 
vate meetings and an eloquent address to 
the Polish National Assembly, appeared to 
have gone only a small way toward sooth- 
ing the uneasiness so prevalent here among 
Poles fearful that their aspiration to a 
Western embrace could fall victim to 
Western fickleness. 

In a country whose history has been 
tortured by betrayal from both West and 
East, Mr. Clinton insisted that he had no 

intention of leaving Poland and its neigh- 
bors isolated and alone. 

He said the United States felt a respon- 
sibility to include them in a wider Europe 
“democratic and free, integrated and unit- 

And he proclaimed: “We will not let the 
Iron Curtain be replaced with a veil of 

But his promise of more than $200 mil- 
lion in new grants and loans was acknowl- 
edged by administration officials to repre- 
sent no more than a small gesture toward 
nudging Poland along a path of economic 

And Polish leaders across the political 
spectrum expressed disappointment that 
Mr. Clinton again stopped short of saying 
exactly when the United States and its 
partners would accept their country as a 
full-member of the North Atlantic Alli- 

“It was a beautiful speech but did little 
to satisfy our security expectations," said 
Bronislaw Geremek, a member of the cen- 
trist Freedom Union party and chairman 
of tiie parliamentary Foreign Affairs Com- 
mittee. “To us this represents a lack of 

It was difficult to say whether that re- 
flected a certain nnrealism on the part of 
the Poles or the new stinginess of an Amer- 
ican government unwilling to shower Po- 
land with generous aid and not yet ready to 
promise to go to war to defend its borders. 
But it left Mr. Clinton’s visit here shad- 
owed by a certain tension. 

Even Mr. Clinton, while proclaiming 
this to be Poland’s best opportunity in its 
350 years to win peace and security, on 

Thursday reflected some of the apprehen- 
sion he had from heard from President 

Lech Walesa and others in warning that 
“history and geography caution us not to 
take this moment for granted." 

The president pointed Thursday to ihe 
joint military exercises to be staged here 
two months from now by NATO and Pol- 
ish forces as a sign that the new Partner- 
ship for Peace is truly intended as a means

Simpson Judge 
Lets in Evidence 
Of Bloodstains 

The Associated Press 

LOS ANGELES — In a setback for tbe 
defense, a criminal court judge ruled 
Thursday that the prosecution can use a 
bloody glove and bloodstains found at O J. 
Simpson's house as evidence that he 
should stand trial for murder. 

The judge. Kathleen Kennedy-Powell, 
said that even though detectives did not 
have a warrant, they did nothing improper 
by scaling a wall at Mr. Simpson’s resi- 
dence after noticing a small bloodstain on 
his car and becoming concerned that lives 
were in danger. 

The policemen went to Mr. Simpson’s 
house after having found the bodies of his 
forma wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, 35, 
and a friend of here, Ronald Goldman, 25, 
outside ha home two miles away. Mr. 
Simpson is accused of killing them both. 
He has pleaded not guilty. 

“The court finds that tbe detectives were 
in fact working for a benevolent purpose in 
light of the brutal attack and that they 
reasonably believed that a further delay 
could have resulted in the unnecessary loss 
of life," Judge Kennedy-Powell said. “And 
therefore, the court denies the defense mo- 
tion to suppress." 

In addition to the glove, which was 
found on the grounds of Mr. Simpson's 
residence and seemed to match one found 
at the scene of the June 12 killings, the 
items in the defense motion included 
bloodstains on his driveway and a blood 
spot on the driver's door of Mr. Simpson's 
white Ford Bronco parked on the street 

“This would be a veiy easy decision for 
me if in fact these officers went in there 
like storm troopers fanning out over the 
property, examining every leaf, every car, 
every closet every nook and cranny at this

Algerian Fundamentalists Tied 
To Killing of Italian Ship’s Crew 

By A] an Cowell 

New York Tima Service 

NAPLES — In what ap- 
peared to an attack by Islamic 
fundamentalists who have 
vowed to kill foreigners, seven 
Italian seamen were found mur- 
dered with their throats slit 
aboard a ship in an Algerian 
port Thursday, Italian officials 

The entire crew had appar- 
ently been slain as they slept, 
bringing to 42 the number of 
foreigners murdered in terrorist 
attacks in Algeria since the fun-

News of the attack in the port 
of Djedjen, near JrjeL 200 miles 
(320 kilometers) east of Algiers, 
reached Italy as Prime Minister 
Silvio Berlusconi prepared to 
host leaders of the Croup of 
Seven major industrialized na- 
tions in Naples. 

One Italian official. Deputy 
Prime Minister Giuseppe Ta- 
tarella, suggested that the kill- 

ists accuse of backing the Alge- 
rian military government. 

“All strategies of terror are 
linked to various aims," Mr. Ta- 
tarella said in Rome. “Today 
was the G-7 but one can also see 
this in the broader context of 
destabilizing relations among 
the Mediterranean countries.'* 

According to Italian officials 
and diplomats, the seven Ital- 
ians had arrived in the Algerian 
port Wednesday aboard the 
Naples-based freighter Ludna 
bearing a cargo of grain, one of 
Italy’s biggest exports to Alge- 

The killers apparently crept 
aboard the unguarded ship at 
night. When no one appeiued 
on deck Thursday, investigators 
found the ship’s crew in their 
cabins with their throats slit, 
officials said. 

Algeria's strife between Is- 
lamic f undamentalis ts and gov- 
ernment forces has claimed 


Last May, also in the Jijei 
region near the newly bunt 

Djedjen port, a bus was am-

three Russians died. The worst 
single attack came last Decem- 
ber when 12 Groats woe found 
murdered with their throats slit. 

Italy is the single biggest im- 
porter of Algerian natural gas 
and 100 of its citizens are work- 
ing in the south of the country, 
prospecting for oil and gas. 

Authorities in Algeria are 
still searching for another Ital- 
ian, Ferruccio Franchini, who 
disappeared last weekend. 

Previously, many fundamen- 
talist attacks have been directed 
at the French, the former colo- 
nial rulers. 

Mr. Berlusconi urged “the

ety to “marginalize the sick part

Carrying On , Amid Disaster 

Rwanda’s Battered Government Keeps Its Upper Lip Stiff 

By Jonathan C. Randal 

Washington Peal Service 

GISENYT, Rwanda — With- 
in just a few days their capital 
has fallen and so has the second 
city. The triumphant rebels 
have named their own prime 
minister. Their erstwhile 
French allies have cut a deal 
with their enemies and their en- 
emies’ principal foreign backer. 

But inside the Meridien Ho- 
tel complex on Rwanda’s Lake 
Kivu riviera, as the travel bro- 
chures called it, it was business 
as usual Thursday for Rwan- 
da’s beleaguered government 

Ministers, senior officers and 
excellencies of all descriptions 
went through the formal paces 
of administration at the luxury 
hotel which once catered to 
wealthy Westerners. 

Heavily guarded by soldiers 
and black-bereted commandos, 
the Hutu officials who stand 
accused of having presided over 
the slaughter of perhaps 
500,000 mostly Tutsi fellow 
Rwandans have no regrets or 
remorse they wish to communi- 
cate to visitors. 

Like so many governments 
on the run throughout history, 
the little court assembled here is 
devoted to self-justification and 
accusing their enemies of the 
predominantly Tutsi Rwanda 
Patriotic Front of manipulating 
the international community. 

First driven out of the capi- 
tal, Kigali, then ending up here, 
the government remains at- 
tached to the trappings of pow- 

Much in evidence were cellu- 
lar phones, used to communi- 
cate to the outside world their 
aggrieved message of a misun- 
derstood and traduced ruling 
elite which has its deepest ana 
most radical roots here in the

“I am not dismayed,” he said, 
encapsulating the government's 
stiff- upper-lip approach. 

Information Minister Eliezer 
Niyitegeka was equally stoic, 
but without illusion about the 
government's predicament. The 
only solution, he said, would be 
to lift the United Nations arms 
embargo on Rwanda which he 
and the rest of the government 
blame for the army's poor 

Pressed about charges of 
genocide leveled against the 
government, he said, “I know 2 
am wanted and I am ready to 
appear in court because I have 
nothing to reproach myself 
with. 1 am innocent” 

His only regret was that he 
had lost considerable commer- 
cial and real estate holdings in 
Kigali, “all destroyed by the 

The government was forced 
to fight “with one hand tied 
behind its back,” he said, while 
tiie front “still gets aid from 
Uganda and great powers,” 
which be refused to name for 
“reasons of state." 

The army, its ammunition ex- 
hausted, did not lose Kigali, the 
capital, he explained, but 
obeyed “government evacua- 
tion orders to withdraw rather 
tha n be massacred.” 

The front had named a mod- 
erate Hutu prime minister, but 
remained “usurpers," as the Or- 
ganization of African Unity in 
its summit meeting in Tunis de- 
cided in rqecting its demands 
to represent Rwanda, he said. 
“We are the internationally rec- 
ognized government with em- 
bassies accredited with all the 
major capitals.” 

Maybe so, but were not the 
government’s longtime French 
allies dropping them just two 
weeks after Hutu in the ever 
shrinking government area de- 
liriously greeted French troops 
with flowers and tricolor flags? 

“The French are doing what 
they said they would do,” the 

the government presence here? 
After an embarrassed silence, 
one boy nodded in the direction 
of the border with Zaire, barely 
a mile away. 

That at least was a straight- 
forward explanation lacking in 
the carefully calculated phrases 
at the Meridiem So, too, was the 
beer-inspired hiss of a Rwan- 
dan soldier as he watched for- 
eign journalists eat lunch near 
the Meridien. 

“They have betrayed us and 
should leave,” he said. 

“You mean the French?” 

“No,” he said, “all of you.”

Arafat Vows to Amend Anti-Israel Charter 

The Associated Press 

PARIS — Yasser Arafat promised 
Thursday to convene the Palestinian par- 
liament-m-exile “in the very near future” 
to delete calls for Israel's destruction from 
the Palestinian charter. 

The amendments were called for in the 
May 4 accord between Israel and the Pal- 
estine Liberation Organization that estab- 
lished limited Palestinian autonomy in the 
Gaza Strip and West Bank town of Jeri- 

Israeli rightists have died the references 
in their campaign to weaken public sup- 
port for the agreement 

The planned meeting in Gaza of the 
Palestine National Council was an- 

nounced in ajoint Israeli- Palestinian state- 
ment after Mr. Arafat, the FLO chairman. 

The co mmnm qnfc said Mr. Arafat “in- 
tends to convene the PNC in Gaza in the 
very near future in order to . . . submit for 
formal approval the necessary changes to 
the Palestinian Covenant as undertaken in 
his letter ... to the prime minister of Isra- 

The two rides agreed to resume talks 
next week in Cairo. 

Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin of Israel 
said his delegation also planned to meet 
with Jordanian officials in an effort to 
broaden the Middle East peace initiative. 

Mr. Arafat said Wednesday that Israel 
must fallow up its breakthrough with the 
Palestinians by reaching peace agreements 
with Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. 

and Israeli officials held another round of 
negotiations on the expansion of Palestin- 
ian autonomy. 

turn of the first elections for the Palestin- 
ian entity and the release erf more Palestin- 
ian prisoners by IaaeL 
Israel said in the communique that it 
would respond to the Palestinians' request 
to release imprisoned women, and the 
PLO promised to remove the references in 
its charter to Israel's destruction. 

Syria blamed Israel Thursday entirely 
for the standstill in Mideast peace talks. 
The accusation in the newspaper Ti&hrin 
was in response to Mr. Rabm’s statement 
Wednesday that the two countries were so 
far apart in negotiations that only U.S. 
mediation could bring them together. 

• Uri Savir, director-general of the Israeli 
Foreign Ministry and a leading negotiator, 
said Mr. Arafat needed a two-thuds ma- 
jority in the 468-member Palestine Nation- 
al Council to amend the Palestinian Char- 

“I imagine he won’t convene the council 

unless he can meet the commitment,” Mr. 
Savir told Israel Radio. “The com mitmen t 
isn’t only to put it to a vote but to pass it” 

Mr. Arafat, Mr. Rabin and Foreign 
Minister Shimon Peres of Israel met for 90 
minutes before jointly receiving a United 
Nations peace prize. 

Mr. Peres and Mr. Arafat met for more 
than two hours earlier, emerging together 
to tell reporters they were pleased with 
their progress. - r . 

Mr. Arafat, who described the talks as 
“verypositive,” departed for Tunis, where 
he wm prepare for his permanent move to 
Gaza and Jericho. He made his first hornet 
coming to the Palestinian lands last week. 

The next phase of the peace process 
involves extended autonomy to otter areas' 
of the West Bank and empowering Jak»r 
tinian authorities to handle taxation, edu- 
cation, health care, tourism and other mat- 

Mr. Rabin said three joint committees 
were formed to work on the next phases. 

“We accepted in principle that the Pal- 
estinians wm manage them own affairs to: 
the extent that this doesn’t threaten the 
security of Israel and Israelis,” he said. 

Mr. Rabin later told Israel Radio that 
Israel had agreed to a Palestinian request ‘ 
to add elections to the negotiating agenda.

cused the West on Thursday of 
“biological colonialism” by 
positing abortion and contra-

The attack came in the intro-

of contraception approved by 
the Roman Catholic Church. 
The book was presented at a 
news conference. 

Hie introduction to the book 
restated Vatican charges of 
“blackmail” by developed 
countries, which it says some- 
times link economic aid to the 
acceptance of contraception. 

The introduction said devel- 
oped nations resisted natural

New York Times Service 

'■ NEW YORK — • A “wfllful 
blindness”- to corruption 
throughout the ranks of the 
New York Gty Police Depart- 
ment has allowed highly orga- 
to deal in drugs ana prey on 
black and Hispanic neighbor- 
hoods, according to the final 
report of the commission that 
investigated the department. , 

“Scores of officers told as 
that they believed the depart- 
ment did not want them to re- 
peat corruption, that, such in- 
formation was often ignored 
and that their careers would be 
rumed if they did so,” the Mdl- 
len Commission on police cor- 
ruption said in its report “The 
ewdenre shows that this belief 
was not unfounded.” 

The panel's report on its two- 
year investigation was particu- 
larly powerful in its criticisms 
of sergeants and other com- 
manders of five prwincts found 
to be ridded with corruption. 
And it took to task the police 
union — tbe Patrolmen's Be- 
nevolent Association — and the 
department’s own internal ht- 
vestigativc apparatus for trying 
to cu rtail mrti-domiption tf- 

The report, formally released 
Thursday, reiterates mecondu- 
sion the panel reached, in De- 
cember's interim findings: that 

most officers in the 31,600- 
mernber fame are. 
s pite the existence of coirup- 
■fea,' - 

But the ffiud.xqiib^dbra^ a 
d o wned picture of ” 

hired groups of rogue officers 
racing t° crime scenes to skim 
money from captured stashes of 
cadi, union delegates tipping 
off corrapt officers to investiga- 
tions, young cadets learning in 
the police academy that they 
are not to “rat" on their .brother 
officers, and internal police in- 
vestigators concealing evidence 
of corruption. 

The panel recommended the 
aty establish an agency, inde- 
pendent of the 

merit, with broad powers to in- 
vestigate corruption and to 
ensure officer accountability in 
corruption cases, as well as to 
monitor officer screening, re- 
cruitment and t r ai ning . 

Perhaps the most disturbing 
finding of the report, which was 
based on a study of internal 
police documents and corrup- 
tion investigations, was the ex- 
istence of wll-orgamzed police 
“crews” that- terrorized black 
and Hispanic neighbodhoods- 

continues to hold out the possi- 
bility of military intervention, 
the Pentagon must be prepared 
to execute it, but military offi- 
cials say the White House has 
not yet derided on an invasion. 

UE. officials said the inva- 
sion plan calls for about 20,000 
troops, most from the army. 
The first task would be to seize 
airfields and ports so an inva- 
sion force could be deployed. 

In addition, 2,000 Marines

Bpstenkowsfci Haps Tactics 

WASHINGTON — Defense lawyers 
for Representative Dan Rostenkowski 
told a federal judge they will mount a 
legal attack on his 17-count corruption 
indictment on constitutional grounds, a 
maneuver likely to delay the start of his 
trial until after the November elections. 

A former U.S. attorney. Dan K.. 
Webb, who is the chief defense attorney, 
said he would file legal arguments within 
30 days claiming the charges violated 
Mr. Rostenkowski's protections under 
the speech and debate clause of the U.S. 
Constitution, which shields members of 
Congress from being prosecuted for con- 
duct' related to legislative activity. 

-Although Mr. Webb and a new co- 
counsel R. Kenneth Mundy. insisted 
they want the case resolved expeditious- 
ly. Mr. Webb said, “We’re not going to 
be stampeded and see a defendant de- 
nied his constitutional rights." 

Mr. Mundy. making his first appear- 
ance in the case, is one of the capital's 
brat-known lawyers. He helped the for- 
mer Washington mayor. Marion Barry, 
defeat the most serious charges against 
him in his 1990 (rial on drug and peijury 

At a court hearing Wednesday, Dis- 
trict Judge Norma Holloway Johnson 

told prosecutors and defense lawyers 
"we've got lo move forward” to gel Mr. 
Rostenkowski to trial on fraud and em- 
bezzlement charges. But authorities said 
the schedule of legal briefs she estab- 
lished for both sides makes it vinually 
impossible for Mr. Rostenkowski to fcc 
tried before the November elections, 
when the powerful Illinois Democrat is 
seeking a 19ih consecutive term. 

Judge Johnson gave Mr. Webb until 
Aug. 5 to file his first challenge to the 
indictment, after which the government 
will have until Sept. 2 to respond. Oral 
arguments are likely to be held during 
September, the judge said. (LATi 

*92 Campaigns Arc Cleared 

WASHINGTON — Allegations that 
President Bill Clinton's and former Pres- 
ident George Bush's 1992 campaigns 
broke federal election laws were among 
29 cases that have been thrown out with- 
out investigation. The Federal Election 
Commission closed those cases on 
Wednesday, saying they involved low 
priority matters. The increasing com- 
plexity of campaign finance law’ and the 
record number of people running for 
public office have forced the office to be 
more careful in selecting which cases to 
pursue. (AP) 

A Senator’s Freudian Sfip 

WASHINGTON — Congressional 
consideration of military spending in the 
post-CoId War era often involves bal- 
ancing Pentagon desires with the impact 
on jobs. 

As Senator Dianne Feinstein. Demo- 
crat of California, demonstrated last 
week, the line between those two can 
become blurred for lawmakers from 
states hit hard by miliary cutbacks. Dur- 
ing floor discussion on whether to con- 
tinue building B-2 Stealth bombers — 
against the wishes of the Pentagon — 
Ms. Feinstein praised the aircraft, saying 
that it “can deliver a large payroll." 

The verbal slip was amended in the 
next day's Congressional Record to read 
“payload.” California would retain 
22,000 high-paying jobs and S2.5 billion 
in defense contracts if the Senate's vote 
on July I to build long-range bombers is 
adopted by the House. ( LAT )

Aden’s Fall to North 
Provokes Fears of 
Regional Instability 

By John Lancaster 

men's two-month cavil war ap- 
to be winding down 
luraday, as northern Yemeni 
troops gained control of the 
port city of Aden, stronghold of 
southern forces seeking to se- 
cede from the country. 

The north’s capture of Aden 
followed intensive artillery 
duds that cut off water supplies 
to the caw’s 400,000 residents 
and raised fears of a humanitar- 
ian catastrophe. In (be last sev- 
eral days, however, the south’s 
defenses appear to have col- 
lapsed, and northern troops 
met little resistance as they 
moved into the city on Thurs- 
day, according to wire reports. 

Despite its military victory, 
the north faces a difficult chal- 
lenge as it seeks to preserve the 
fragile unity of Yemen, formed 
four years ago by the merger of 
conservative North Yemen with 
Marxist South Yemen, where 
the country’s limited oil wealth 
is concentrated. 

Leaders of the secessionist 
south were reported to have fled 
Aden by boat to neighboring 
O man, where they vowed to 
continue fi ghting against north- 
ern forces controlled from the 
Yemeni capital of San’s. 

That, in tom, has raised fears 
of a protracted guerrilla war 
that could spill over into neigh- 
boring Saadi Arabia, under- 
mining stability throughout the 
vital, oil-producing region. 

A diplomat familiar with the 
region said the fall of Aden 
does not mean the civil war is 
over. “The war has just begun,” 
he said. 

Saudi Arabia and its Western 
allies, including the United 
States, fear that radical govern- 
ments in Iraq, Iran or Sudan 
could seek to expand their in- 
fluence in (he region by step- 
ping in on the side of the north, 
possibly using Yemen as a base 
from winch to infiltrate its 
wealthy neighbor. 

Saudi Arabia has long had a 
troubled relationship with the 
Yemeni president, Ali Abdul- 
lah Saleh, who is from the north 
and supported Iraq during the 
1991 Gulf War. 

U.S. officials have expressed 
concern that Saudi Arabia and 
its Gulf allies may formally rec- 

cus is on addressing humanitar- 
ian concerns, restoring essential 
services to all Yemenis and ini- 
tiating the political dialogue 
necessary to affect a reconcilia- 

The fighting ended at day- 
break on Thursday, and by af- 
ternoon residents of the city 
were lining the streets to wave 
victory signs at northern troops, 
according to Reuters. 

In San’a, the northern gov- 
ernment announced the end of 
the war, while in Washington a 
spokesman for the Yemeni Em- 
bassy said northern forces had 
begun distributing food and 
water to Aden and outlying ar- 

Nuclear-Talks Issue: Can U.S. 

By R. Jeffrey Smith 

R'cahingUm Post Service 

WASHINGTON — U.S. surveil- 
lance satellites observed an unusual 
development in 1992 at the rite of 
North Korea’s newest nuclear reac- 
tor — workmen suddenly began de- 
molishing new walls and rerouting 
recently laid pipes so they could 
swiftly install electric turbines in a 
new room. 

The construction, on the eve of a 
visit by international nuclear inspec- 
tors, essentially' grafted onto the 
completed structure some power- 
generating equipment that UJS. offi- 
cials say was meant to perpetrate an 
elaborate but not very successful 

By giving the plant the appearance 
of a reactor meant to generate elec- 
tricity, the turbines were- apparently 
meant to shore up a longstanding 
North Korean contention that its nu- 

clear program is exclusively peaceful, 
despite some obvious signs of sub- 
stantial weapons work. 

The deceptive construction lies at 
the heart of a key issue for negotia- 
tions between North Korea and the 
United States beginning Friday in 
Geneva — namely, how legitimate is 
North Korea’s claim that its nuclear 
program mnst be maintain^ to pro- 
vide dectridty? 

Washington is convinced that the 
200-megawatt reactor is being built 
solely to produce plutonium, a key 
ingredient of nuclear arms, U.S. offi- 
cials note that no -effort has been 
made to connect the reactor to the 
nation’s power grid. Other nuclear 
facilities also Lade any connection to 
dectridty generation. 

Nevertheless, senior U.S. officials 
say they are willing to go along with 
the lie m hope of striking a deal that 
would replace the reactor with a less 

threatening one and case a major 
US. foreign. policy headache. 

In the t*H« on Friday, they said, 
Washington is prepared, to offer 
North Korea a pledge of assistance in 
obtaining new nuclear technology so 
Pyongyang can build a reactor more 
sin tea to generating electricity than 
building bomba 

“The attitude is, Tf that’s what 
they want, that’s what wen me 
them,* ” a senior U.S. official said of 
North Korea’s demand for assistance 
in building a more modern, replace- 
ment reactor. 

In' exchange, Washington wants 
Neath Korea to promise that work 
on the worrisome reactor wiE be halt- 
ed and the structure dismantled ac- 
cording to an agreed timetable; the 
United Slates also wants dismantling 
of a separate, 25- megawatt reactor 
and a laboratory for reprocessing re- 
actor fuel to separate phtfarinm. 

But skeptics in the administration 

mod onCapitoi Hill-have argudti that 
the prospective deal could pose sub- 
stantial risks for Washington. 

They 'suggest that North Korea is 
merely tiyutg to buy tone for its nu- 
clear weapons work by tying a final 
resolution of the nuclear dispute to 

tor m around 10 years. 

Senator ftril Gramm* Republican 
of Texas, 'is. among those raising 

He nwmfaKns that the nudjear ca- 
pacity of North Korea, exists, solely 
for purpose of making plutonium 

• and has never has be^ attached to 
the national power grid. 

“The argument that they will be 
hampered in dectridty production 
by shutting down the reactor com- 
plex is ridiculous,” Senator Gramm 
insists. - 

The decision to m«ky damnation 
of the 200 -roegawatt reactor a foens 
of the Washington proposal reflects 

the conviction of senior ofiSdals, par-, 
ticutariyat the Defense Department, 
that cutting off North Korea's capa- 
bility to pluionhim in the fu- 
ture is more important — andfeasi- 

bje filming any pbnonntm it 

may have made already. 

It was North Korea's refusal to 
gOow an inspection of the smaller, 
25- megawatt reactor to assess its - 
previous plutonium production that 
triggered a crisis last month. That 

ton agreed to new talks while hokiing

’s Official Development Assistance reaches people 
in 150 countries around the world. 

Back in 1954, Japan started its Official Development Assistance (ODA) after 
joining the Colombo Plan, for socio-ecdnomie development in the A^Pacific 
r^ion. from those early years we’ve grown up into world’s largest aid donor. 

20 years of Group of Severn economic su mmits, Japan fo proud to be celebrating 
its own anniversarp: 40 wears as an Official ItoRtanmont AarisfauiAR donor 

World’s number one donor ration. 

Since 1991, Japan has been the world's largest aid donor. In 1998, we . 
provided 11.26 billion dollars of ODA to over 150 countries around the world, 
representing one-fifth of the wood’s total ODA And we will continue to increase 
the size and scope of om^devekpaent assistance. Last year, we announced

People helping people in times of need. 

In 40 years of ODA participation, we have dispatched over 16,000 experts 
and 12,000 volunteers overseas to improve human resources in developing 
countries. Over the years, 93,000 foreign trainees from developing nations have 
visited Japan to learn the technical skills they need to improve the living 
conditions in their home countries. We have also fostered development of 
human resources in former socialist countries to help form market economies. 
Our total technical cooperation in 1993 equaled $2.5 bfllion. 

Sometimes Japan’s aid can be more direct When disaster strikes in a 
developing country, Japan dispatches teams of experts to help with rescue and 
medical operations there. Japan’s ODA also comes in the form of subsidies or 
Grass-Roots Grants to assist Non-Govemment-Organizatiors (NGO) in meeting 
the various local needs of developing countries. 

Self-help and good governance— Japan’s ODA philosophy. 

You might wonder what motivates Japan to take the lead in so many 
different areas of international aid. Besides humanitarian concern and environ- 
mental conservation, Japan’s ODA is based on recognition of interdependency 
among nations. It also supports the self-help spirit and good governance on the 
recipient side. Japan’s ODA Charter embodies the following four principles: 

(1) Environmental conservation and development should be pursued in tandem. 

(2) ODA should never be used for military purposes. 

(3) Recipient countries’ military expenditures, their development of weapons 
of mass destruction, and arms trade should be closely watched. 

(4) Full attention should be given to efforts by recipient countries to promote 
democratization, introduction of market-oriented economies, and secure 
basic human rights. 

Reliable, plentiful and no strings attached. 

Our aid generaBy arrives with no strings attached Once aid is provided to 
a recipient country, the procurement of goods and services is open to anybody 
in most cases. Japan’s untied aid rate at 83.8% is remarkably high among ircyor 
donor nations. In fact, contracts from Japan-aided projects are won by private 
companies of various origins, not only from industrialized countries but also 
from developing countries as well. Japanese companies contracted only less 
than 30% of all the ODA loan financed projects in 1993.

Despite all the good that ODA creates, traditional recipients still need 
our help- Additional development needs are arising in such regions as 
Indochina, Central Asia, South Africa and the Middle East We are determined 
to help them meet their challenges. 

At the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in 
Rio de Janeiro in 1992, we pledged around ¥900 billion to¥l trillion ($7.7 biHfon 
at 1992 rate) in environmental assistance to the world over the next five years. 

We have been working to improve living conditions, pollution control, 
conservation of natural environment and disaster prevention. We also promote 
activities for Women in Development (WID), which helps meet the vital needs 
of women in developing countries. 

If we can make, some progress in solving these issues, perhaps we can 
help more people to experience a more humane life. We believe that 
prosperity goes hand-in-hand with environmental conservation, economic 
liberalization, democratization and respect for basic human rights. We are 
prepared to assume a leadership role to promote these universal values 
through development assistance.

SribuM A Riskier East Asia for LackofaNew 



Inequality on the Rise 

Of all the rich democracies, there is only 
one, the United States, in which inequality 
of incomes rose sharply in the past decade 
and the wages of the working jpoor sank. 
There have been big gains in income for 
many Americans, but most of those gains 
have been concentrated in the richest fifth 
of the population. These trends raise trou- 
bling questions about the direction in 
which American society is moving. 

Comparisons of the rich countries' 
economies generally emphasize the rapid 
creation of jobs in America and, in con- 
trast, the much higher unemployment 
rates in Western Europe, where elaborate 
social protection makes labor markets less 
responsive to the market But there is 
another and darker side to the compari- 
son. Richard B. Freeman of Harvard Uni- 
versity and several colleagues at the Na- 
tional Bureau of Economic Research have 
been looking into the differences in the 
condition of labor among these countries 
and describing these trends. 

In the 1980s, technology shifted job 
opportunities in favor of education and 
skill. That happened throughout the in- 
dustrial world. But it resulted in major 
increases in income inequality only in 
America and in Margaret Thatcher's Brit- 
ain. Even in Britain the earnings of the 
poorest workers increased — but not in 
America. In most of the other countries, 
the number of well-educated people rose 

rapidly. In America the proportion of 
youngsters finishing high school dropped 
from the late 1960s to the late 1980s. The 
number of college graduates, after risii 
extremely fast in the 1960s, grew mt 
more slowly over the next two decades. 
The result was a limited supply of educat- 
ed people in a time of strong demand. 
American incomes have reflected that. 

The drastic decline in union member- 
ship in the United Stales is another factor 
accounting for greater inequality. But 
there have been similar dedines in other 
countries — for example, France — where 
there has been hardly any shift in the 
balance between rich and poor. In France, 
the explanation may be fiercely protective 
social legislation that also pushes up the 
unemployment rate, now more than 12 
percent versus 6 percent in America. 

That is the puzzle: to devise ways to 
prevent the rise of inequality, and to keep 
the bottom end of the ladder out of abso- 
lute poverty, without interfering with the 
creation of new jots. While the remedies 
seem expensive, it is worth considering 
the costs of the alternative: a country in 
which the distance between rich and poor 
grows steadily, with class hostilities and 
the politics of resentment getting louder. 
Free markets, including labor markets, 
do many things marvelously efficiently 
— but not everything. 


Confused Haiti Policy 

Give them this. This White House 
team knows how to upstage a presiden- 
tial trip. When Bill Clinton was in Eu- 
rope for D-Day observances, all eyes 
were on North Korea. This week, as he 
visited Poland, came news that com- 
mando units of the U.S. Army and Navy 
have been practicing a takeover of Hai- 
ti's ports and airfields. 

It is hard to believe that the Pentagon's 
willingness to discuss these “secret” ma- 
neuvers is not pan of a plan to flush 
Lieutenant General Raoul C6dias and 
his henchmen out of Haiti. That is a 
worthy goal, but the timing is amateurish 
and the underlying message is troubling. 
Washington and the United Nations 
have only recently become serious about 
enforcing meaningful economic sanc- 
tions. These need to be given a chance to 
produce political results. And a new refu- 
gee initiative unveiled on Tuesday at least 
temporarily relieves the political pressure 
from that direction. 

After months of vacillating from one 
policy to another, the United States faces 
the troubling prospect that President 
Clinton is drifting into using troops in 
Haiti because he wants to compensate for 
other policy embarrassments and does not 
have a better idea. Aimed force is a notori- 
ously poor tool for solving political pro- 
blems. Even if U.S. forces, as expected, 
were to make quick work of General C6- 
dras and his crew, does Washington really 
want responsibility for enforcing law and 
order in a volatile, revenge-minded land? 

Meanwhile, for refugees it is now 
America if by land, Panama if by sea. 
Under the Qmton administration's latest 
refugee policy, the next 10,000 boat people 
qualifying for asylum will be sent to Pana- 
ma. Only those who qualify in Haiti will be 
eligible for resettlement in America. 

The new policy promises larger num- 
bers of people safe haven from terror and 
persecution; but it continues to discrimi- 
nate against Haitians, denying qualified 
refugees the right to resettlement in the 
United Stales that is enjoyed by political- 
ly more popular groups. 

The amended policy comes less than 
two months after the administration 
ditched the despicable practice it inherit- 
ed from the Bush administration of es- 

corting would-be refugees bade to Haiti 
with no chance to explain the dangers 
that spurred their flight. New procesang 
centers were opened m the Caribbean to 
evaluate refugee claims, about a third of 
which were found to have merit. 

Predictably, that big policy shift en- 
couraged many more Haitians to take to 
the seas, hoping to qualify for resettle- 
ment in the United Stales. More boats 
brought more drownings. The increase 
also threatened to overwhelm the Carib- 
bean facilities and reignited fears in Flor- 
ida of a large influx of Haitians. 

As it amends that policy now to bar 
qualified boat people from the United 
States, the administration still offers 
sanctuary from danger, meeting its min- 
imal moral and legal obligations. Yet if 
people continue to flee at present rates, 
the 10,000 slots in Panama could be 
filled within two weeks. 

Meanwhile, the new policy has one big 
defect. It subjects Haitians to discrimina- 
tory treatment because of their race and 
their lade of the powerful friends who 
have facilitated resettlement for compa- 

rably large groups of other nationalities. 
Some half a minion Cuban refugees, for 

example, have been resettled in the Unit- 
ed States since Fidel Castro came to pow- 
er. More than 100,000 people have been 
admitted from die former Soviet Union 
since 1980 alone. Haitians, in contrast, 
have long been treated as an unwanted 
burden, even though many who do get in 
have achieved economic success. It is 
only very recently, after the congressio- 
nal black caucus and Randall Robinson 
took up their cause, that Washington's 
policies have begun to bend. 

The Clinton administration deserves 
credit for ending summary returns in May. 
Its new policy maintains that substantial 
achievement But the administration has 
done the right thing in a way that still redes 
of discrimination. It thus invites criticism 
from all sides rather than the credit it 
could have gained for upholding the 
American principle of sanctuary for all in 
desperate need. And now it adds the con- 
fusion of a Lurch toward military adven- 
ture without enough thought about what 
might come after the victory parades, 


Other Comment 

Name-Calling in Indonesia 

Think of it as progress. When Indone- 
sian Information Minister Hannoko ap- 
peared before a parliamentary hearing 
after having shut down three popular 
Indonesian weeklies — Tempo, Editor 
and DeTIk — he was greeted with boos 
and catcalls. Up close, such treatment of 
a government minister may not look like 
progress. But in the context of a multi- 
ethnic nation caught up in the many 
conflicts released by development, name- 
calling is certainly preferable to sticks 
and stones. And that is a point well worth 

would bring a stiff jail term — or worse. 

National stability is an important con- 
cern. But what seems to get publications 
in trouble in places like Indonesia is not a 
penchant for gossip and disinformation 
but a habit for getting too close to the 
truth. It hardly seems a coincidence that 
the three publications each carried stories 
on Indonesia's minister for research and 
technology, B. J. Habibie, at the center of 
a controversy over the purchase of 39 
ships from the former East German navy. 

We cannot speak for the coverage of 
these weeklies. What we do know is that 

keeping in mind as Indonesia wrestles 
with ' 

with one of the more contentious issues 
of development: freedom of the press. 

We are not insensitive to the dangers in 
a society like Indonesia, where misinfor- 
mation and inflammatory articles con 
easily lead to unrest and even bloodshed. 
Nor are we blind to the great strides 
Indonesia has already made; we can think 
of many Asian regimes where the kind of 
criticism meted out to Mr. Harmoko 

Mr. Habibie's economic policies are op- 

posed within his own government 
many whose intentions presumably are far 
from undermining Indonesia’s stability. 
We know, too, that such debate over poli- 
cy is healthy, and that an emerging middle 
class has much to contribute. Our guess is 
that the more such issues are ha $heH out in 
the nation's press. Parliament and univer- 
sities, the less they will be played out 
violently in the nation's streets,

[ONG KONG — East Asians like to 
L pretend that so long as they get their 
economics right, all other problems will 
pale into insignificance. Yet recent events 
in the region are a salutary lesson that 
"econophoria” has it perils. East Asian 
security is at a major turning point, and 

By Gerald Segal 

notall the signs are positive. 

The challeng e to the old security order 
of regional security is most evident on the 

Korean P eninsula. By effectively aban- 
doning the struggle to force North Korea 

to give up its nuclear capability, and con- 
centrating cm preventing the expansion of 
its nuclear arsenal. President Bill Clinton 
has in effect decided to tolerate its acquisi- 
tion of a nuclear capability. 

Pro claiming a “breakthrough’ 1 while ac- 
cepting nuclear proliferation is a late 20th 
centuiy verson of Neville Chamberlain’s 
acceptance of “peace in our time.” Short- 
term calm is bought at the expense of the 
near certainty of long-term risks from nu- 
clear weapons proliferation. 

Damage is done to American credibility, 
not to mention to South Korea's ability to 
cajole North Korea into peaceful reunifi- 
cation on congenial terms. The prospect of 
a succession crisis in Pyongyang being 
waged with nuclear weapons must dull the 
bones of those who live in Northeast Asia. 

Elsewhere, confidence in economics is 

upset by harsh political realities. Japan's 
increasingly pathetic attempts to pretend

An important explanation is that Japan's 
political modernizatioiLis catching up with 
its remarkable economic modernization. 

Contrary to the fondest wishes of many 
authoritarian rulers in East Asia who claim 
that they are culturally indisposed to politi- 
cal liberalism, it seems that there is a link 

between political and economic reform, ln- 
l Japanese 


r alism anda greater share of their national 
wealth. The shakeout in Japanese society 
will mean further uncertainty about Japan’s 
direction and its foreran policy priorities. " 

A third source of worry about East 
Asian security is the evident unwillingness 
of Southeast Asians to begin serious dis- 
cussions about regional security. To be 
sure, there are new forums for such discus- 
sions, but the reality behind the facade is a 
reluctance to face even halfway difficult 
choices. A meeting of senior ministers this 
month will not dial with substantive mat- 
ters or even attempt to reach a consensus 
about the agenda for regional security. 
They cannot even agree on now the various 
Chinese states should be represented. 

■The aiay;haws been right in be- 
lieving that .what passes .for multilateral 
security in East Asa is little more than an 
excuse for strengthening national security. 
. The largest source of uncertainty abput 
the region concent (he fate of China. In a 
major reassessment of Chinese defense 
spending, the. International Institute for 
Stategjc Studies saggests that China now 
ranks third in the. world. But at the same 
time as China is pouring money into mili- 
tary research and development, its economy 

and society are growing more fragmented 
and fragile. The co mbinati on pf insecurity 
rod potential rnOhafy clout is dangerous. * 
The authorities in Ikying know that 
they are gradually losing control of their 
economy as the booming coastal regions 
flout their authority. They find themselves 
increasingly forced to import food, and in 
1993 China became a mt importer of oiL 
Interdependence with the outside world 
is beginning to take' hold of important 
aspects of Chinese foreign policy. China’s 
eventual entry into GATT wQl cany with 
it a bevy of conditions on greater transpar- 
ency in economic policy. The. upshot will 
be a regular wrangles about trade that will 
make the most-favored-nation debates 
seem short and sweet by comparison. 

A China so constrained is Kkely to strug- 
gle to change the international system and 

perhaps compensate for Internal fragility 
with external finctiousness. ' . 1 •

Let’s All Start Seeing the Benefitso % 

TT/ASJilNGTON — When President 
W Bill Clinton meets this week with 
the leaders of the world's other advanced 
industrial nations at the Group of Seven 
summit in Naples, he will press them to 
approve the Uruguay Round of GATT 
by the end of this year. That agreement, 
the me** Car-reaching trade pact in histo- 
ry, is scheduled to take effect next Jan. 1. 

The agreement must come into force 
on time so that the world can enjoy its 
enormous benefits soon. But the willing- 
ness of America’s partners to act will be 
strengthened by America’s continued 
willingness to lead. 

The Uruguay Round is far more than a 
trade agreement Its approval is a strate- 
gic priority for the United States. It is an 
investment in a more stable and integrat- 
ed world in which open societies are 
linked and invigorated by open markets. 
And it is a bridge from the postwar world 
of hah a century ago to the post-Cold 
War world that we are forging today.

engagement and the persistent work of

the bipartisan support it has gained, the 
president is seeking congressional ap- 
proval of tiie agreement this year. 

Because the United States is. the 
world's leading exporter, tins agreement 
is shaped to America's strengths. It opens 
global marker to an unprecedented ex- 
tent at a time when American companies 
and workers have become more competi- 
tive. And it extends free-trade principles 
to services and agriculture for the Brat 
time. By lowering trade barriers arid 
opening new markets, the GATT agree- 
ment will create hundreds of thousands 
of high-wage, high-skin jobs for Ameri- 
can workers in the next decade. And by 
reducing t ariffs on imports, it will lower 
prices for American consumers. 

After World War II, the United States 
led the way in constructing an open 
world trading. system. Those who de- 
signed the architecture for the postwar 
world understood that, to avoid another 
world war, strong security structures had 
to be reinforced by strong economic 
structures. They recognized that cooper- 

ation would allow economiesto grow and 
people to prosper. That cooperation, un- 
der a senes or GATT-sponsored world 
trade negotiations, enabled countries to 
cut tariffs, lower barriers arid create jobs; 

The architects of the postwar world 
also understood that nations United by 
trade would be less divided by conflict ?

state, Cordell HoU, put it, "When goods 
move, soldiers don’t” -

Iceland 50 Years On, Enduring Between Europe and America 

R eykjavik — Fiftieth anni- 

. veesaries are in the air these 
days, as we move from one World 
War U milestone to another. Re- 
cently, the Icelanders marked the 
50th anniversary of an event that 
took place during the war but was 
only indirectly related to it: their 
independence from Denmark- 
Little noticed by the outride 
world, every community in this 
island nation turned out on June 
17 to commemorate what is for 
these hardy people a holy day. 

The mam event took place at 
Thmgytillir, a spectacular lava 
formation not far from Reykjavik 
where the island's first Farlia- 

B j John. €. Auskmd 

ment met in 930. It is, by coinci- 
dence, near the place where the 

island is very slowly being torn in 
two, as Europe and America drift 
away from each other. This geo- 
logical phenomenon symbolizes 
the dil emma that confronts this 
nation of 260,000 as it seeks to 
adjust to the end of the Grid War. 

first settled by Norwegians 
who fled from Norway when 
Harald the Fairhaucd united his 

country by the sword in 872, the 

Icelanders have ova- the centuries 
had a difficult history. After a 

period of independence, they fell 
under the rule of first the Norwe- 
gians and then the Danes. 

finally, in 1918, they reached, 
an agreement with the Danes that 
would permit them to become in- 
dependent after 25 years. By that 
time, however, Hitler had swept 
oyer Europe. Denmark was occu- 
ied and unable to negotiate free- 
with the Icelanders. 

Having declared their neutral- 
ity, the Icelanders turned down a 
British offer to defend them. Out 
of concern that the German navy 
had a longer reach than it in fact 
had, a British destroyer on May 
10, 1940, sailed into Reykjavik's 
harbor and disgorged a battalion 
of troops. Taken by surprise. 
Prime Minister Hermann Jonas- 
son decided to make the best of 
things nnd advised his people to 
treat the British troops as guests. 

Not all Icelanders were so easi- 
ly reamriled. A half-century of 
tension between part of ihe popu- 
lation and foreign troops began. 

When an ill-prepared U.S. 
Marine contingent arrived on 
July 7, 1941, to begin replacing 

the British, garrison, (hey were 
greeted by considerable popular 
hostility, even though the gov- 
ernment had (reluctantly) invit- 
ed them. After an extremely dif- 
ficult winter, they were happy 
the next year to move over for 
the U.S. Army, which eventually 
had 45,000 men on the island. 

By VErDay, the air base that 
the Americans, constructed at 
Keflavik was playing an impor- 
tant role in air traffic to Germa- 
ny. Although the Icelanders 
wanted to be rid of the base, they 
finally agreed to a limited civfiian 
maintenance force. 

As the Cold War got under 
way, the Icelandic government 
was ambivalent about its role. 
When it finally decided to be a 
founding member of NATO, a 
riot broke out in the square in 
front of the Parliament. The po- ; 
lice had to use tear ^as to qnen iL 

Learning from this experience, 
ihe government changed its ap- 
proach when it decided to agree 
to the expansion of the base, at 
Keflavik, following the North 
Korean attack an South Korea. It 

Settle for Quality Sport on the Field 

TT7ESTPORT, Connecticut 
VY — The scolds and the dis- 
illusioned of modem America 
are once again lamenting the 
disappearance of the hero in our 
disenchanted times. 

Curiously, although sports 
troubadours are traditionally 
the dupes accused of being too 
quick to romanticize athletes, it 
is rarely our kind nowadays who 
carry on about how sports stars 
are, in the usual overwrought 
phrase, Letting Us Down. 

The fad is, people in sports 
and people who cover sports are 
much more understanding of 
bald reality. Athletes are, for the

most pari, young men footloose 
and fancy free, possessing, 


wealth and little responsibility, 
who have been bootlicked and 
pushed ahead in line since they 
were children and are the re fore 
likely to Let Us Down. 

why should we Americans be 
surprised that our young royalty 
acts any differently from the 
spofled-kid aristocrats at balls 
in "Madame Bovary” with their 
"daily satisfied passions ... in 
which the muscles are flexed 
and vanity sated"? Welcome to 
the major leagues. 

But when forced to confront 
a case like O. J. Simpson's — or 
a much more eveiyday event 

like the drug-use suspensions

mantle while other equivalent 
entertainment figures remain 
merely stars, without moral ex- 
pectations. The athletes are built 
up even more because in our 
mtpiddr® society it is so hard for 
anyone to retain heroic status. 

_ Carlyle’s prescient observa- 
tion that "Democracy means 
despair of finding any heroes to 
govern you” has mwdy_ been 
confirmed by. the ordination of 
ersatz ballpark heroes. 

All this is complicated farther 
by that cloying term “role mod- 
el” More accurately, when ft 
comes to athletes mat people 
fawn over, it should. be "role 
dream.” AH too often, Ameri- 
can children cite some celebrity 
they would choose to be rathor 
than someone worthy they 
would prefer to be like. And 
them we get angry at the desig- 
nated role dream for riot living 
up to false demands. 

Athletes can’t help it if they 
arc looked up to. 

It should never shock us that 
kids are most impressed by 
sports stars and rod: singers. 
Neither should we be upset 
when O. J. arid Doc and Diego 
and Jennifer and Deny! and 

of Dwight o _ 

Maradona — nonsports jour- 
nalists have a very hard time 
teffing celebrities from heroes. 

For some reason, sport lumi- 
naries are draped in a hero's 

Pete go astray in their private 
lives. Most often we should take 

stars misbehave. Who knows? It 
may even be. good for them to 
see that famous people are not 
above the law. In (hat sense, 
Gooden’s 60-day suspension is 
surdy worth scores of canned 
public service announcements ' 
about Just Saying No. 

But — andi here’s. the rub — 
we should be far more con- 
cerned with the professional be- 
havior of athletes. It is there, on 
the field or court, that sports 
stars do have a real effect upon 
impressionable kids — and s lot 
of dopey adults too. 

It is one thing to be fold that 
so-and-so . was. caught, doing 
drugs. It is much more devastat- 
ing for fans to actually She their 
role dreams mugging each oth- 
er, insulting each other, carrying 
on brutally and abusively*- 

Of course; snorting cocaineis 
intrinsically a worse offense than 
trash talking. But each ugly ac- 
tion on the fidd of play — rc- 
peated in the soiled high&gris 
broadcast — carries far greater 
wright than what falsely ap- 
pointed heroes may do m the 
privacy of their own conceit. 

The woeful search for the 
peeriess may be appropriate, but 
when it comes to athletes it is 
enough to hold them to a heroic 
athletic standard — on the field, 
where seeing is believing.

A Russian Makes the Case

wbs stiD hedang unfolds on the 
premise that Russia objects to having

doorete^ Is this loss of a strategic 
butler Russia s reward lor abandon- 
ing communism and empire 7 The 
question arises both from aggrieved 
Russians and from Americans, in- 
-chiding policymakers at the highest 
level, sympathetic to their alamu^' 

Good answers are av ailable in- 
duding that, in all due respect, Rus- 
sia caniHX be alk^ to cafi NATO’s 

s hot s. Bui the most td&ng response 
wanes from an unexpected location: 

Russia ksdL Russia has in effect two 
parties, one looking West and mean- 
ing to leave (OTpiie behind, the other 
looking more inward and readier to 
reassert the old order. Among the 
. Westerztizens who see no good reason 
for Poland, Hungary and the two 
halves of the fo rme r fTediftci^wiiriB 
not to join NATO, Sergd Blagovo- 
tin's voice rings dear. 

Mr. Blagovotin is a veteran of the 
■ policy wars who runs an institute in 
Moscow and is high in the Russia's 
Choice party of Yegor Gai dar. He 
$ and the Hudson Institute's William 
Odom, a retired general and framer 
bead of the National Security Agen- 
cy. explored the issue of NATO's 
expansion in the int ernat ional affairs 
periodical Novoc Vremya, Na 7: ' " 

The idea drodates that, “the Rus- 
sians’* oppose NATO expansion. 
But Mr. Odom notes that Boris 
Yeltsin said in Warsaw and Prague 
last September that Russia would 
not object if theyjoined. Only latex; 
under pressure from a mifitaiy that- 
had bailed him oat in a confronta- 
tion with the old Parliament, did die 
president reverse his stance. 

Mr. Blagovotin went an to make 
the case for expansion from Russia's 
point of view: 

NATO has no offensive potential, 
a condition confirmed by its unanim- 
ity rule, the reduction of UB. forces 
to the 100,000 level audits turn from, 
preparing to repel a Soviet invasion 
to refocusing on regional conflict. 

Poland, Hungary, the Czech Re- 
public and Slovakia sit in a “miK- 
taxy-political vacuum” and K crasr 
pletdy rationally” fear unforeseen 
developments In Russia and 
. Ukraine, not to forget Germany. 
They are “more or less ‘compati- 
ble’” with NATO, and ready — 
unlike many other wodld-be mem- • 
i bers — and their participation does 
* not threaten Russia. . “Generally' 
speaking, I see only one real danger 


Sooth Africa 


in NATO’sexpansion — the possi- 
bifity that reactionary forces in Rus- 
sracould use this as one more excuse 
to ignite anti-Western sentiments.” 

- Russia’s own -entry' into the alli- 
ance would mean a “gigantic expan* ■ 
Sion” of NATO’s sphere, into an “At-. 
Ian tic-Pacific -structure,” and many . 
existing NATO members would re- 
bel. “brother words, [Russian entiy] 
Is a guaranteed- way to. end NATO, 
practically if. not formally." 

Mr. BtagovoKn’s favored alterna- 
tive to membership for Russia is 
a . high-level strategic partnership, 
with the United States aim NATO in 
Europe and with' the' United Stales 
and others in Asia. Such cooperation 
“would also become an extremely ef- 
fective mea ns for preventing a hew

i from all developed countries of 
the worid awaits us.” 

It is so, of course, that one policy 
.wont’s article does not prove that 
a tidal wave of entightemnent is 
about to sweep over a divided and 
distracted Russian government. 
But itcan only help to realize that 
the anti-expansion bluster one 
hears in Moscow, and the sympa- 
thetic echo of it that one hears in 
Washington, is something less than 
the whole story: representing not 
eternal verities but a political de- 
bate in the one place and a diplo- 
matic posture in -the other. 

It patronizes Russians to thmlc 
they cannot bring themselves to un- 
derstand that NATO expansion 
does not threaten them, and prom- 
ises them security advantage and 
much more. By steadying down a 
, disruption-prone slice of Europe on 
a sensitive Russian border, expan- 
sion gives heart arid political space 
to Russia’s liberal Westernizing par- 
ty and steals a card from the conser- 
vative and nationalistic party that is 
given to tension and adventure. 

- NATO has held off cm expand- 
ing so as not to stir up Russian 
nationalists and undercut Mr. Yelt- 
sin. But this reduces a consider- 
ation of high strategy to an issue of 
low tactics. Mr. Odom warns that 
Western hesitation may encourage 
father than discourage Russian im- 
perialist tendencies: 

“Now it is. painfully dear that 
failing to hedge against the failure 
of liberal development in Russia is 
a strategic error. It can still be cor- 
rected. Russia is in no position to 
prevent the expansion of. NATO 
today. In a few years ii may be.”

Devahiation Can Help 

Regarding the report “ Under Im- 
posed Devaluation, Africa’s Poorest 
Get Poorer ” (June 3): 

The writer stales that the “clearest 
result” of the devaluation of the 
CFA franc is the exacerbation of 
poverty in the CFA zone. In fact, 
a well-managed economic reform 
program offers compelling benefits 
even to West Africa’s poor. 

The vast mqority of west Africans 
are rural farmers who stand to gain 
when the price fra* their goods in- 
creases. At the end of the article, the 
writer hersdf points out that the con- 
sumption of nee imported from Thai- 
land used to be cheaper than con- 
sumption of local foodgrains — a 
pattens that is now changing under 
post-devaluation pressure. 

In addition, most West African 
consumers, even urban consumers 
in Niger, base their diets largely on 
non traded, domestically produced 
items such as coarse gram and root 
and tuber crops whose prices are not 
affected by toe devaluation. 

Urban consumers in coastal 
countries, such as Senegal and the 
Ivory Coast, are much more depen- 
dent on imported rice to be sure, but 
they will find ample supplies of mil- 
let, sorghum and cassava in West 
African markets this year. 

Even countries like Niger. Bur- 
kina Faso and Mali, landlocked in 
the Sahel of West Africa, yet with 
economic comparative advantage in 
the production of coarse grains, 
meat, groundnuts, cotton and 
(sometimes) rice, will see the region- 

al market opportunities for these 
goods change as coastal countries to 
their south no longer import meat, 
grains and vegetable oils to the same 
extent from the world market and 
instead increase their demand for 
these goods from their neighbors to 
the north. In the process, the vast 
majority in these countries — their 
rural producers — will benefit. 

The lesson from noo-CFA West 
African countries such as Ghana, 
which have already gone signifi- 
cantly down the path of economic 
reform, is that a competitive ex- 
change rate and an open economy 
do not bring hardship to the popu- 
lation. Rather, by decreasing the 
relative cost of labor and increasing 
the relative cost of imported goods, 
devaluation makes both import- 
substitution and export activities 
competitive once again. 

This offers the hope that Sub- 
Saharan Africa can be more than 
just a source of primary materials 
for world markets, contributing 
higher- value manufactured goods 
to the global economy as well.

A Vital Distinction 

Dolls are playthings. They are 
made of plastic or china. They do 
not fed pain. They occasionally gel 

stepped on. left out in the rain or 
lost entirely. Dolls break. They lose 
a limb here and there, they get worn 
out, even abused. But doUs. even 
abused ones, go on being just that 
— toys that can be discarded or 
packed away. And they never feel 
the pain that a human being sub- 
jected to abuse would feeL 

I am a woman. I am not a dolL 
And I am perfectly capable of feel- 
ing pain. I am writing in response to 
the insensitive headline “Guys 
Aren’t Supposed to Bash Dolls” that 
ran over Bob Herbert's opinion col- 
umn about domestic violence (Opin- 
ion, June 30). The headline misses 
the “big challenge” that Mayor Ru- 
dolph Giuliani of New York wants 
to see addressed. Mr. Herbert writes 
that Mr. Giuliani knows that the 
culture needs to change “so that it is 
second nature for men to view the 
beating of women as ‘despicable and 
cowardly conduct.’” Until people 
stop referring to women as dolls, 
this challenge cannot be met. 



Fishing for a Verdict 

Regarding “ Fiske , the Clinton 
Shield, Is Hardy Independent” (Opin- 
ion, June 24) by William Safire : 

Mr. Safire harps obsessively on 
Whitewater. It is dear from this 
article that the only judgment on 
this relatively trivial matter that he 
would accept as independently ar- 
rived at is the verdict “guilty 


N APLES — The question being 
tested here under the volcano is 
whether, banning with one world- 
important and summer-scorched 
weekend in July, it is possible to hew 
order from the chars called Naples. 

When the leaders of the seven rich- 
est nations arrive on Friday, will they 
And a historic and beautiful city that 
is belatedly recovering its health and 
pride? Or wfll they see hasty makeup 
caking an urban corpse? 

Reform Naples? Don't laugh too 
hard Change is afoot in Italy’s messi- 
est metropolis- Reforms are being 


launched, and some people lake them 
seriously. “I have begun to stop for 
red lights,” said Tullio Pironti. a book 
publisher. “I used to feel stupid if T 
stopped, because nobody else did.” 
The Italian government, security 
de tails of the leaders and Neapolitans 
th emse lves will make sure these visi- 
tors see no trace of it, but there is a 
everlastingly seamy side of Naples. 
When I exclaimed at a white-bearded 
body in blue jeans tying in the gutter, 
my driver scarcely braked explain- 
ing, “No, he's not dead; that’s Alfon- 
so, who’s quite comfortable there. 
He’s a habitud Alfonso drinks and 
drinks. I think he drinks to forget." 

Oblivion and disorder, thy name is 
Napoli. Little moves under the broil- 
ing sun except hands jammed on 
horns. Motrabikes weave on side- 
walks around pedestrians, pickpock- 
ets, con men, preteen apprentice 
hoods called “ scugnizzi .” Vendors 
hawk African gewgaws, Miami Dol- 
phin hats, smuggled cigarettes and 
pirated copes ofX-rated movies. The 
streets are also home to a nasty 
branch of organized crime called the 
Camorra, arm support some of Eu- 
rope’s highest official unemployment 
and worst civic services. Neapolitans 
agree that their city is ungovernable 
and untivable, but 78 percent tell 
pollsters they would never leave. 

Naples may even seem quite magi- 
cal from B31 din ton’s vantage point 
in the Caruso Suite of the Hotel Ve- 
suvio at the heart of a newly coiffed 
city core. What a difference a year 
can make! Last summer, the dty hit 
bottom, overwhelmed by corruption 
and decay. Garbage festered, few 
traffic lights worked, potholes swal- 
lowed roads, the water was brown, 
the- dty was not paying its bills. 

Change began on Aug. 6, 1993, 
when Prefect Umberto Improta, 
Rome’s senior representative in Na- 
ples, dissolved the feuding, corrupt 
and inept dty government Mr. Im- 
prota, 61. formerly police chief in 

Milan and Rome, does not take kind- 
ly to dvic malfeasance. In two years, 
be has dissolved 16 local govern- 
ments in the region for having links 
to the Camorra and 40 others for 
administrative paralysis. In Naples, 
he named administrators to run the 
bankrupt dty until fall elections. 

Before that, though, tben-Prime 
Minister Carlo Ciampi amazingly 
asked if Naples could possibly acco- 
modate the G-7 stummmt meeting. 

“I said yes, if certain dungs woe 
done first” said Mr. Improta. The 
central and regional governments du- 
tifully acted up about $35 million for 
infrastructure preparations. 

When the mayoral elections came, 
Naples turned to the left in protest 
against corrupt establishment par- 
ties. Antonio BassoUno, 47, a long- 
time apparatchik of the former Ital- 
ian Communist Party, defeated 
Alessandra Mussolini, granddaugh- 
ter of the former dictator. 

Together, Mr. Improta and Mr. 
Bassolino have begun stitching the 
dty back together. Public works 
contracts are now let on a fixed- 
price bads in a blind draw of com- 
peting companies — a revolution in 
the Italian context Repaving of the 
main bayside road, a dvic priority 
for decades, is finish ed. The Piazza 
del Plebisdto and the Via San Carlo 
have been redone and antiqued to 
restore them to the way they looked 
in the early 19th century when Na- 
ples, home of a ruling Spanish king, 
stood with Paris and London in the 
front rank of European capitals. The 
Royal Palace, where the G-7 leaders 
will meet has had its face lifted. The 
police are giving traffic tickets; 
trucks are towing illegally parked 
cars. Mr. Bassolino has reopened 
half a dozen parks. 

But the philosopher and social 
commentator Luigi Campagnone, 78, 
a lifdong Naples resident is skepti- 
cal: “I never go out anymore because 
I cannot bear to see Naples. It’s un- 
livable. People go into raptures about 
the music, sky, sun, sea, sand. Lies, all 
lies. I define Naples as a collective 
infection. Two weeks after G-7 it will 
be exactly the same mess as before.” 

Naples is no stranger to big inter- 
national gatherings, or the fact that 
liule lasting good usually survives 
them, said the Neapolitan sonolo- 
gist Domenico de MasL The Roman 
emperor Tiberius held ancient world 
versions of G-7s on the island of 
Capri off tiie Naples coast, he said. 

“Greeks, Romans, Renaissance 
[Minces, 16th- and 17th-century kings 
have always met here; it's an excuse 
for a party." Mr. de Masi said.

Trap cto Bonheur 

Directed by Cedric Kahn. 

Valferie (Estelle Perron) and 
Mathilde (Caroline Trousse- 
lard), high school students in 
a small southern village, are 
best friends, but Valfcrie is the 
kind of blonde who gets all 
the attention from the boys. 
Kam el (Malek Bechar) and 
Didier (Didier Borga) are 
best friends too, but Didier is 
a French boy and Kamel is 
an Arab. The story of those 
who are excluded horn the 
game of love and desire is 
played out on dusty bikes 
and during a parly. Kahn, 
who made “Bar des Rails,” a 
fine mournful first feature, 
developed this fable from a 
TV film (part of a series an 
adolescence called “Tons les 
garcons et les Giles de leur 
age*"). His structure looks 
Rohmerian, with the criss- 
crossing of couples and (be 
choreographed all-night par- 
ty. A “Ma runt chez Claude” 
for the ’90s? Of course, these 
kids don't articulate or even 
express much, so what takes 
place has to be gleaned from 
trite talk, smooth empty faces 
and the gap between their 
words and deeds. Such ba-

ters seem real, but it’s as if 
they’re involved in an ex- 
hausting exercise, not always 
gripping to watch.

Michelle Pfeiffer and Jack Nicholson in “Wolf.” 


Directed by Mike Nichols. 

“Wolf," the new Mike Nich- 
ols film starring Jack Nich- 
olson and MIcheflc Pfeiffer, 
doesn’t take a straight hor- 
ror film approach to the 
werewolf genre, and it’s not 
a jokey send-up either. It’s 
something fresher and infi- 
nitely more inventive — a 
satire about how to climb 
the corporate ladder that 
uses werewolf lore only as its 

metaphorical springboard. 
In its own delightfully pecu- 
liar way, the film is the only 
one of its kind ever made — 
a horror film about office 
politics. What Nichols has 
attempted here — with the 
assistance of the screenwrit- 
ers Jim Harrison and Wesley 
Stride — is the filmmaking 
equivalent of a high-wire 
act. The result is a some- 
times shaky, always en- 
chanting Beauty and the 
Beast story for grown-ups 
that is the very essence of 
smart fun — droll, sophisti- 


Directed by Russell Mukahy. 

The Shadow” is based on 
the exceptionally popular ra- 
dio character, who appeared 
in 1930 and didn't vanish 
from the airwaves until 1954. 
“Who knows what evil lurks 
in the hearts of men? The 
Shadow knows,” is one of the 
most famous phrases in 
American pop culture, famil- 
iar even to people who have 
no idea who the Shadow was 
or what he did. In this sleek, 
entertaining new movie, the 
Shadow is Alec Baldwin, a 
wily actor who brings along 
just the right mix of do-goo- 
dism and evil potential Style 
is almost everything hoe, 
and it’s a tough call whether 
the star is handsomer than 
the sets. One of die big fad- 
ings of “The Shadow,” 
though, is that neither the 

Shadow nor the plot are very 
compdling. But me movie of- 

fers a diverting, nostalgic re- 
treat to the innocent days 
when crime fighting was a 
pleasant, rich man's hobby.

Reinvented Circus From 

By Ann Duncan 


QNTREAL — In only 10 

years, the Cirque du 
has grate from being a ragtag 

bunch of stflt-walkcrs, fire- 
eaters and assorted street p erf ormers' to 
becoming one of Quebec's chief cultural 

The Montreal-based Cirque did this by 
reinventing the circus from the groundup. 
For the Cirque is about as far removed 
from Bam am and Bailey as water from 

wina^ ^ hnmdof ’ Iras 

transcends! national* 1 boundaries, dunn- 
ing crowds around the world. Its three 
current shows — each production with its 
own theme, flavor, story line and raison 
d’etre — are playing in three different 

Until Sept. 11 in Tokyo, the. Cirque is 
performing “Saltimbanco,” about a fan- 

lighting and theatricality have been bor- 
rowed from or. mQue&oed by ‘other -key 
cultural figures in Quebec! These include 
the mtematiozurily known theater director 
Robert Lepage, the Carbone 14 dance- 
pcrfcnnance group and the rode star Mi- 
chel Lemieux, who is considered a wizard 
with lighting and special effects. - 
. Yes, there is stfljabig top. This “circus 
of the sun” usually perfonus under its 
trademark blue-ahd-yeUow, 2,500-seat 
tent, although thb Cirque was asked to use 
a more muted daxkblue for its current run 
in Tokyo. ’ T. - 

But gone are many of the traditional,, 
three-ring entertainments. Instead, the 
Cirque usually presents a coherent show, 
complete with a thane and plot develop- 
ment, all presented. cm one amorphously 

of pure magic that draws almost umfonn- 

^ T^eCriqM^"talent is as international as 
the show's customary appeal. In “Ale- 

the show's customary appeal, 
grin," the three clowns are from Russia, 
rwo 9-year-old contortionists are from 
Mongolia, the pole balancers are from 

rviitia the comedian is fixxn Bdgium, and 

tastical vision of the future, and Cirque 
officials recently announced that they 

would be taking “Saltimbanco” on the 
arcus’s most ambitious European tour 
ever, starting in March 1995 in Amster- 

The Cirque also has a permanent home 
for its “Mystfere" show at the Mirage Re- 
sorts hotel in Las Vegas. And it recently 
unveOed its latest show, “Alegrla.” before 
enchanted hometown crowds here. “Ale- 
gria” — whose title is Spanish for elation 
or joyfulness — will then go on a two-year 
tour of North America with stops in San 
Francisco, Santa Monica, New York, To- 
ronto, Chicago, Boston, Washington and 

In the company’s experience, a Europe- 
an tour is something of a gamble. In 1990, 
the Cirque hit London during a rare beat 
wave. “It was the biggest heat wave in the 
past 60 years,” Jean David, the Cirque’s 
vice president of marketing and communi- 
cations, said recently. “Everybody left 

. too, raafmmals. The Cirque ex- 
ploits huTP**" beings only, transforming 
them by tumintofivjpg pretzels (the con- 
tortionists), crazed vrald beasts (the death-

acrobats), and loony creatures who seem 

to spring from the dcxgf recesses of a 
collective unconscious: These 

thTtombleis are from, the United States.

But the corps of the creative team is

director; Franco . Dragone, whose back-

Seeing London From the Thames 

By William E Schmidt 

Ne * Y <*k Tones Serna 

L ondon — with two short 

be §? n to bring the boat around. 

T TJj* k^U 051 glided underneath 
Tower Bridge, and most of the passengers 
who paid for the hourlong aghSeonenip 
aboard the open-decked 60-foot(I8-nK- 
ter) boat were still twisted round m then- 
seats, squinting at the great Gothic-style 
towers soaring above the river. 

“Now would be a good time to get out 
your cameras," the ^pfnin announced 
over the loudspeaker as he swung the bow 
upnver and steered between the brute's 
huge stone piers. 

Never mind that the boat,, and every- 
one’s cameras, were now aimed into the 
late afternoon sun. Backlighted and 
framed in shadow, the gray stone towers 
and larticeworks of iron girders, freshly 
painted in brilliant white and blue to cele- 
brate the bridge's - centenary this year, 
loomed spectacularly over the river, offer- 
ing a new and dramatic view of one of 
London's most familiar 1andfnaTi c y_ 

On balmy summer afternoons, there are 
few better and more interesting ways to 
see London than from the deck of a cruise 
boat gliding along the Thames. 

The river, after ah, is not only the heart 
of (he ancient capital and, in a way, its ' 
main road, it is the reason the city exists; 
London was founded by the Romans as a 
river port in A. D. 43. 

Simply as a vantage point for seeing 
London, the river opens up new vistas, 
affording a kind of wide-angle perspective 
rarely glimpsed within the capital itself. 
From the Thames, the great dome of St 
Paul's or the buildings of Parliament or 
the 18th-century splendor of Somerset 
House, just beyond Waterloo Bridge, 
loom much larger and more powerful 
The river itself is cleaner and more 
pleasant than it used to be. While health 

authorities say the river is not safe for 
swimming, officials of Britain’s National 
River Authorities say they have counted 
112 species of fish in the river, as a result 
of aim^nution projects started during 

On the lower stretches of the river, 
boats are again harvesting cockles, and 
Dover sole and even salmo n swim freely 
along its length. 

As recently as the nud-19th century, the 
Thames was little more than a tidal cess- 
pool; more than 400 sewers emptied di- 
rectly into the river, and the smell, was so 
horrific inride P arliament that sheets 
soaked in lime chloride were hung in river- 
ride committee roans in the hope of over- 
powering the stench. 

- WMe the Thames is is 
not nearly as crowded as it was earlier this 
century, when freighters and cargo 
barques used to tie up in long rows beside 
riverside warehouses. - . 

Many of those warehouses — especially 
the ones on the south of the river, across 
from the CSty — -have since been conven- 
ed into trendy apartments, offices and 
restaurants, giving the river a new and 
friendhor public face. Inseveral locations, 
pubs and restaurants have opened terrace 
decks overlooking die river. 

M OST river cruises begin at 
Westminster Pier, just below 
the tower of Big Ben. The 
boats, at the pier across the 
street from the Westminster Underground 
station, range from enclosed double-deck- 
ers, complete with bar; to smalle r boats 
with open-air decks. 

Travelers c an go either upriver, toward 
Hampton Court, or downriver, in the di- 
rection of Tower Bridge and, farther 
along, Greenwich and the Thames Flood 
Barrier, theccaxtrol structure across the 
river to capture flood surges. 
v The simplest way to see the river is to 
jump oa one of the anise boats that run 
regularly between Westminster and the 
dock at the Tower of London. The trip 
takes 20 to 30 minutes, depending cn the 
tides, and along the way passes beneath 
six bridges. 

During ihe summer months, the boat 
pilots usually keep up a chatty travelogue, 
combining commentary on riverside rites 
with obviously scripted jokes and social 
observations (“The hotel you see on the 
right is one of the most expensive in Lon- 
don, catering to three classes of people; 
the rich, the very rich and the filthy rich''). 

At the end of the cruise, don’t be sur- 
prised if the captain passes a hat, but tips 
for the guide are voluntary. 

The journey carries the traveler past the 
gentle curve of Victoria Embankment and 
Cleopatra’s Needle, the pharaonic obelisk 
brought from Egypt in the 19th century, 
the modem glass and steel pile of the 
South Bank Center, London’s largest cul- 
tural complex; the glorious wedding cake 
steeple of St. Bride’s Church and dome of 
St_ Paul's, and the Belfast, a World War II 
cruiser moored on the river as a kind of 
floating museum, across from the Tower. 

Among other things, approaching the 
Tower of London from riverside offers the 
day-tripper the eerie sense of what it must 
have been like for Anne Boleyn and the 
Earl of Essex. Condemned to 4«ith they 
arrived, like all prisoners, by river, enter- 
ing the fortress through Traitors’ Gate, 
clearly viable only at low tide. 

A longer voyage downriver to Green- 
wich takes about 40 to 50 minutes, and 
passes, along the way, the zero-degree me- 
ridian, separating the hemispheres. 

The trip upriver to Hampton Court, the 
fanner royal palace, takes about three to 
four hours. Along the way, the boat slides 
under the Victorian fantasy of the Chelsea 
Bridge and traces the course, from Putney 
Bridge to Monlake, of the annual spring 
race between the Oxford and Cambridge 
crews. Past Kew, the river opens up into 
lush countiyside, passing cottages and 
gracious homes. 

For those who just want to spend some 
time on the water, there are regular sight- 
seeing boats that run from Westminster 
and Charing Cross Piers, some of which 
offer dining — luncheon, tea or dinner. 
There is an addition to this year's Beet: a 
four-hour nighttime cruise, with an after- 
dinner show by an Elvis impersonator. 

Keeping Up With Your Mileage 

By Roger CoHis 

tnternoiiOHat Herald Tribune 



F.F.PING track of frequent-flier 
programs, mileage thresholds, 

partner tie-ins, bonus offers 
y — and expiry dates is the most 
■ daunting management task for business 
travelers. Which airline you fly, where you 
stay, how you pay, which phone caxd ybti 
use. and which rental car you drive are the 
land of decisions that you can only prop- 
erly delegate to yourself. 

Even a straightforward trip from, say, 
Tokyo to London can require some fancy 
footwork. Do you fly nonstop with Japan 
Air Lines, thus earning the last 6,000 
miles you need for a free first-class 
round-trip ticket? Or SAS via Copenha- 
gen to top up your miles for a free busi- 
ness-class flight to New York? Or Viran 
to earn a 30 , 000 -m 2 e bonus for your fust 
flight in business class, which can buy 
you two round-trips from London to Par- 
is with British Midland? Flying British 
Airways, plus five nights at the Hilton 
(charged to Amex), wiH earn you enough 
miles to qualify for a Silver Executive 
Club card, which confers lounge privi- 
leges at major airports and a raft of other 
benefits. And so it goes. 

Glasnost it is not. And with airlines 
shaving services and benefits and avail- 
ability of awards, changing partners mid 
routes, and accumulated miles 
expiring faster than stock options (don’t, 
count on a milli on miles in the bank for a 
peripatetic pension plan), even tb e mo st 
dedicated mileage junkies are finding it 
hard to stay ahead of the game. 

Since American Airlines introduced 
AAd vantage as a short-term promotion 
back in 1982, frequent-flier programs 
have taken off in a big way. The world s 
. airlines collectively operate about 80 such 
m: programs, which, with cross-partnerships, 
add up ronxire pcriiiniationsthan posa- 
ble moves in a game of chess. Since Euro- 
pean and Asian carriers got into the act m 
the last two years, thereare probably more 
than 100 million members of the pro- 
grams, many of whom belong to several 

Pr ThiHsgood news for travelera, wboesm 
obtain luggage, cameras or golf dubs as 
well as upgrades and free tickets. The an-. 

lines, however, tee a growing problem. 
Pundits reckon that only 28 percent of 
accrued has bon used, which 

t ranslates to more than 36 billion unre- 
deemed miles floating around the system. It 
has been estimated that if all outstanding 
mSes were to be redeemed in the United 
States on a single day, 570,000 747s would 
be needed to meet the demand. 

Airlines protect themselves against such 
an apocalyptic eventuality by typically 
imposing a mar t on redemptions and re- 
serving the right to modify or caned pro- 
grams at short notice. M&eage credit ex- 
pires after two years with Lufthansa's 

fie Frefutt fnrehr 

Mfles & More, Sabena's Frequent Flyer, 
SAS”s EuroBonus, Qantas’s Frequent Fly- 
er, Swissair’s Qualiflyer and JAL’s Mile- 
age Bank; after three years with American 
AAdvantage, Alaska’s Mileage Flan, Un- 
ited’s Mileage Plus and Northwest's 
WorklPerks; after five years with BA’s 
Executive Qub. 

There’s no li mit s o far with Continen- 
tal's OnePass, TWA’s Frequent Flyer, 
Ffcmair Plus, Korean’s FTBS and USAir’s 
Frequent Traveler. But expiring idles 
seems to be where the programs are head- 
ing. Delta's new Skymfles (effective May 
1, 1995) wiH expire miles three years after 
your last Delta flight 

If you don’t travel much, mileage can 
expire before you gather enough mfles for 
one free, trip; whereas if you travel a lot 
you may btmd up more mues than you can 
use. The answer may be to spend it oa 
upgrades and other perks, such as free 
nights at hotels and on merchandise. 

Since membership is free, it makes 
sense to join the frequent-flier plan of any 
airline you fly. Even if you never earn 
enough credit for a free flight, you may 
benefit from membcreonly promotions 
and special offers on hotels and car rent- 
als. But try to concentrate on one dr two 
programs, especially on frequently trav- 
eled routes so as not to dilute your mile- 
age credits. Look for tie-ins with other 
amines on. which you can earn and redeem 
mileage credits. 

If you fly short trips (around 300 miles) 

in the United States, Alaska, America 
West, Delta, Northwest, TWA and USAir 
let you earn free domestic trips faster than 
most other camera. Wi thin Europe you 
may find the best awards with smaller 
camera. Alitalia's Club Ulisse awards one 
free business-class or two free economy 
tickets from Britain to any Italian destina- 
tion for every five paid round-trip busi- 
ness-class trips. With BA Executive Qub 
you would need to make 1 1 round-trips in 
business class to earn just one free ticket 
to Italy. British Midland awards you two 
round-trip tickets from London to Paris 
for only 12 round-trip flights in business 

Geography may dictate which program 
you join. If you live in Minneapolis, you’ll 
probably want to join the Northwest pro- 
gam; USAir if you live in Pittsburgh. 
Travelers based in London should certain- 
ly join BA Executive Qub (partners; Alas- 
ka, USAir, Qantas, Cathay, Malaysia and 
Singapore Airlines). Scandinavians would 
almost certainly join SAS EuroBonus 
(partners: Austrian, British Midland, 
Swissair, Virgin). If you're based in Ger- 
many you’re going to fly a lot on Luft- 
hansa and so should join its Miles & More 
program, bat you should also join Unit- 
ed's Mileage Pius, whit* offers more gen- 
erous credits when you fly Ijifthansa. 

P EOPLE based in Hong Kong win 
want to join Cathay’s Passages 
(partners: Malaysia, Singapore 
Airlines, BA. Swissair and Austra- 
lian Airlines). Passengers using Schipbol 
should Canada KLMs Flying Dutchman 
pro gram, which has reciprocity with North- 
west and Air UK. 

Consider too what you want out of a 
frequent-flier plan. If your goal is to take 
the family on vacation or send children 
away to school, you want a program that 
allows you to transfer credits. 

Several airlines give special perks and 
privileges to travelers who rack up enough 
miles ayear to reach “very frequent flier” 
status. Typically, you need to have 30,000 
mfles to reach the first VFF level. The 
most important benefits are use of an 
executive lounge, prefared access to up- 
grades, relaxation of blackout dates and 
seat limitations on award trips, and priori- 
ty wait-listing.

BONN — Germany an- 
ucmiced stale research subsi- 
dies fonts troubled aerospace 
industry on Thursday to help 
German companies fight what 
Bonn regards as unfair com- 
petition from the United 

Hie move appeared likely 
to fuel the current trans-At- 
lantic dispute about state aid 
in the industry. 

Remh&rd Goehner, Eco- 
nomics Ministry state secre- 
tary, said the research and 
technology program would 
have funding of 1.2 billion 
Deutsche marks (5760 mil- 
lion), financed equally by the 
government and industry. 

It would focus on energy- 
saving, pollution reduction 
and noise reduction in four 
sectors: large aircraft, en- 
gines, hehooptcTS and aircraft 

“The new program is in- 
tended to enable us to catch 
up. through indirect support, 
in international competition, 
especially against the United 
States and Japan, without 
starting a new subsidy race,” 

The government's contribu- 
tion will be 600 mflfioh DM, 
payable over four years from 

The aid, centering on the 
development of demur and 
more energy-efficient aircraft 

Daimler Reviews Payout 

Bloomberg Bumas News 

FRANKFURT — A top executive with Daimler-Benz AG, 
Germany's lareest company, said Thursday that it would 
revise its dividend policy next year and may start paying 
larger dividends to attract more foreign investors. 

The chitf financial officer, Gerhard Liener, said the deci- 
sion to tie the size of the dividend to earnings could result in 
bitter payments in good years or none at all in bad years. 

Hie company also announced that it had raised 2.56 billion 
marks ($1.62 button) from new Daimler-Benz shares. 

“You will start seeing our dividends tied more closely to 
our results,” Mr. Liener said. “We must do this in order to 
meet our strategy of increasing international shareholders.” 

The sale of almost 4.7 million new shares, which ended 
Tuesday, had met with “extraordinary success,” he said. 
Buying in U.S. markets increased the American stake in 
D aiml er to about 8 percent, he added. 

Major shareholders in Daimler-Benz include Deutsche 
Bank, which owns 24.4 percent, and the Emirate of Kuwait, 
which holds 14 percent. Both maintained their shares by fully 
subscribing to their tights in the new issue. 

and engines and new on- 
board systems and equip- 
ment, is designed to ™akB up 
for what Germany contends 
are unfair advantages held by 
the U.S. aerospace industry. 

Germany and other Euro- 
pean countries charge that 
Washington pumps indirect 
subsidies into its industry 
through the research and de- 
velopment budgets of the Pen- 

tagon and the National Aero- 
nautics and Space Ad- 

The aerospace and aircraft 
industry generally has been 
hit by a recession-linked 
slump in aircraft sales and 
shrinking defense contracts 
since the end of the Cold War. 

Deutsche Aerospace, the 
largest German company in 
the sector, said the new pro- 

was a step in the right 
ion but said the aid did 
not go far enough. 

“The naked figures speak 
for themselves — millions in 
Germany, billions in the Unit- 
ed States,” DASA spokesman 
Christian Poppe said 
Mr. Goehner said the pro- 
gram represented a switch 
away from traditional direct 
subsidies to indirect support. 

“It is essentially a question 
of creating the framework in 
which the German and Euro- 
pean aerospace industry can 
maintain the international po- 
sition they have obtained, not 
least with state assistance,” he

Berlusconi Hails 
Weak Dollar on 
Eve of G-7 Talks 

Japan’s 2.8% Joblessness: Don’t Believe It 

By Alan Friedman 

International Herald Tribune 

NAPLES — The weak dollar 
is good for the United SLates 
and for Italy, and any interven- 
tion by central banks to prop it 
up would be useless. Prune 
Minister Silvio Berlusconi of It- 
aly said Thursday, on the eve of 
the Group of Seven summit that 
he is hosting. 

Mr. Berlusconi said attempts 
at coordinated intervention in 
the foreign exchange markets 
were “behind us.” 

The Italian prime minister’s 
candid statement at a news con- 
ference came as officials from 
Group of Seven countries 
sought to vanquish any expec- 
tations of a coordinated dollar 
support package. 

“I am not worried about the 
weakness of the dollar person- 
ally because I see advantages 
for the U.S. economy.” Mr. 
Berlusconi said. “I don’t see 
any need for major initiatives 
every time the dollar is weak,” 
he added. 

Antonio Martino, Italy's for- 
eign minister, said the dollar’s 
weakness depended “more on 
traders outside the United 
States in the market than on 
events in the United States.” He 
noted that the Italian govern- 
ment found the weak dollar 

“good for us” because it low- 
ered the cost of raw material 
imports that are priced in the 
U.S. currency. 

Mr. Berlusconi also disclosed 
that “President Bill Clinton has 
written a letter to me in which 
he is proposing that interna- 
tional institutions provide SS 
billion of economic aid for 
Ukraine.*' The International 
Herald Tribune reported Satur- 
day that President Clinton 
would be asking his G-7 part- 
ners to support the 55 billion 
aid package, drawing on funds 
from the World Bank and the 
International Monetary Fund. 

The 55 billion aid proposal ■ 
was separate from a financial 
package to support the closure 
of the Chernobyl nuclear plant 
and help rebuild Ukraine’s en- 
ergy sector, Mr. Berlusconi 

As chairman of the G-7 sum- 
mit, Mr. Berlusconi said he 
would also propose an Italian 
initiative to create a special mil- 
itary task force that could be 
used to intervene in trouble 
spots around the world.

does not expect any reference to 
the current weakness of the dol- 
lar to be included in the final 
communique of the s ummi t, a

The Associated Press 

TOKYO — fit an illustration af Japan’s 
hidden lmemplqyment problems, the de- 
partment store Ginza Kanematsu has re- 
ceived more than 20,000 requests for inter- 
views for 30job openings it expects to have 
next ApriL 

The job-seekers responded to an ad in 
an employment guide distributed at uni- 
versity campuses this week, and most were 
students expecting to graduate at the be- 
ginning of next year’s hiring season, a 
Kanematsu official said Thursday. 

“Hus is definitely a sign that news of 
economic recovery has yet to affect the job 
market, where companies have padded 

their payrolls for decades,” said Kyohei 
Morita, an economist at Nomura Research 

In the past, larger Japanese companies 
have tacitly guaranteed lifetime employ- 
ment in exchange for undying company 
loyalty. But, Mr. Morita said, that tradi- 
tion lias proved too expensive to maintain 
through the prolonged recession from 
which Japan is beginning to emerge. 

After three years of unprecedented prof- 
it declines, Japanese companies are cutting 
recruitment drastically and forcing many 
employees in their nnd-50s into “volun- 
tary” retirements. 

In February, Japan’s unemployment 
rate hit Z9 percent, its highest level in six 
years. Since then, it has hovered at 2.8 
percent. When the economy was booming 
in the late 1980s, it stood at 2J percent. 

These numbers would excite envy in 
virtually every Western nation. But in Ja- 

K anyone who worked more than one 
in the last week of a given month is 
considered fully employed for that month. 
All members of the armed forces also are 
counted among the employed. 

Economists say that if U.S. counting 
methods were used, Japan’s unemploy- 
ment rate would be as high as 8 percent. 

Schneider in From Cold? 

The Associated Press 

BERLIN — Jurgen Schneider, the fugitive property dealer 
who vanished three months ago and left behind debts of 3.1 
billion Deutsche marks ($2 billion), has made contact with 
German authorities through a Swiss law firm, the German 
television network ZDF reported Thursday. 

It was the first reported official contact with Mr. Schneider 
since he unleashed a major financial scandaL 

The network said it had learned that a Geneva law firm 
gave prosecutors power of attorney for Mr. Schneider, but it 
was not known what be intended. His whereabouts have been 
a mystery since April 4 when he wrote one of his bankers that 
doctors had advised him to go away. 


Insiders Send a Clear Message: 'Buy’ 

By Floyd Norris 

Hew York 71 am Service . 

N EW YORK — The dollar is 
down, and interest rates are 
up. There is talk of a new bear 
mark et. In that atmosphere, 
who would want to buy stocks? 
Corporate insiders, that’s who. 
Buying by insiders — officers and di- 
rectors of companies — is by some mea- 
sures running at its most intense since 
early 1991, when the stock market was 
taking off in the bull market that began 
with the Gulf War. 

“Insiders started picking up when the 
market bottomed,” said David Coleman, 
the editra- of Vkkeris Weekly Insider 
Report, a Washington newsletter that 
tracks insider buying and selling. “In 
1987 and 1990, they did the same thing." 

Last week; Vkkex'sYecorded more pur- 
cHases than sales among insiders whose 
stocks are listed on the New York or 
American stock exchanges, by a margin of 
five buys for each three sdls. For the last 
eight weeks, the average such figure is 
almost even: 1.07 sells for every bpy. 

That may not sound all that bullish, 
but it is. Insiders have lots of ways to get 
their hands on stock before they resort to 
buying it on the open market. Many have 
shares from before the company went 
public. Even more get options to buy 
stock. Such options are often exercised at 
the same time the stock is sold, leaving 
the insider with no market risk. 

As a result, there are almost always 
more open-market sales of stock by in- 
siders than there are similar purchases. 

And while insider selling is often a warn- - 
ing at bad news, insider buying is viewed 
as an even better indicator of a stock’s 
being worth consideration. 

After all, as many a corporate officer 
has explained, there arc lots of reasons 
for an insider to sell besides bearishness. 
The insider wants to diversify invest- 
ments, or pay for a new house, or college 

A level of baying as high 
as the current one has 
often served as an 
indicator for the entire 

tuition. But there is no obvious reason to 
buy, except hope that the price will rise. 

A levd of buying as high as the current 
one has often served as an indicator for 
the entire market. Vicker’s regards as 
bullish a ratio under 132 sales for each 
open-market buy. 

Insiders are required to report their 
transactions to the Securities and Ex- 
change Commission by the 10th day of 
the fcDowing month. Thus, all June 
trades are to be reported by Monday. 
Many such reports stBl come in late, but 
stiffer rules — including a requirement 
that companies report to shareholders 
why officers and directors were late in 
fTliijg — have improved the promptness 

As a result, the ratios now being re- 
ported include activity in May as well as 
June and thus are somewhat behind in 
terms of actual activity. 

Vkker’s compares the number of sales 
by insiders with the number of open- 
market purchases, regardless of the size. 
And while Vkker’s reports weekly fig- 
ures — last week’s ratio erf 0.61 of a sell 
to each buy was the second lowest in the 
last three years — it focuses on an eight- 
week moving average to smooth out the 

“Since October 1974, when we began 
plotting this data, the market h** not 
failed to improve significantly when our 
eight- week sell-bay ratio fdl below 1.0 ” 
Mr. Coleman said. The ratio fell below 
that figure last month, although it edged 
back up at the end of the month. 

Among individual stocks, Mr. Cole- 
man said he had seen considerable inter- 
est in a number of gambling stocks. Casi- 
nos w ere darlings of Wall Street in 1993, 
and a lot of inriders chose to sell then. 
But the stocks have been driven down 
this year, and recently there has been 
interest shown by insiders in such com- 
panies as Boyd Gaming, Circus Circus, 
Casino Magic, Station Casinos, Grand 
Casinos and Sahara Gaming. 

Several real estate investment trusts 
have also seen insider interest, including 
Storage Equities, Partners Preferred 
Yield and Crescent Real Estate Equities. 

And International Business Machines 
Corp. has seen substantial insider buying 
at prices from $55 to $58 and a bit 
higper, Mr. Coleman noted. 

IBM Moves to Defend Mainframe Business in EU 

By Tom Buerkle 

International Herald Tribune 

BRUSSELS — International Business 
Machines Corp. said Thursday it would 
pull out of a consent agreement with Euro- 
pean authorities to provide technical infor- 
mation to its competitors, in an apparent 
bid to stem the decline of its mainframe 

The announcement, which came just 
four weeks after IBM applied for a release 
from a 1956 U.S. consent decree that has 
constrained its computer service business, 
marks an attempt by Big Blue to come to 
grips with the loss of industry dominance 
over the past decade. 

The company has suffered as networks 
of personal computers and workstations 
have eroded its highly profitable main- 
frame computer business, analysts said 

IBM moved to end monopoly proceed- 

ings against it in 1984 by agreeing with the 
European Commission to provide specifi- 
cations to competitors on product attach- 
ments, memory and software for its main- 

IBM was allowed to terminate the agree- 
ment on one year's notice, which it provid- 
ed to the commission on Wednesday and 
announced publicly Thursday. 

A commission spokesman said it would 
be “premature” for the commission to take 
an immediate position on IBM’s decision. 

Hans Olaf-Henkd, the chairman of 
IBM Europe, said the industry today is 
dominated by client-server networks based 
on open, rather than proprietary, comput- 
ing systems. “The dynamics erf the industry 
have made most of the undertaking's terms 
obsolete,” be said. 

Jim Ruderman, an IBM spokesman in 
Paris, said the company has had only a few 

requests for information from Hitachi. 
Amdahl and Fujitsu in the last five years, 
and none from European companies. He 
said IBM did not expect any new action by 
the commission. 

A spokesman for the commission, the 
European Union’s executive agency, said 
officials had noted the announcement and 
would speak with other computer compa- 
nies and try to assess over the coming year 
whether IBM r emains too dominant m the 
mainframe market. 

IBM’s share of the European mainframe 
market has stayed steady at around 55 
percent but the market itself has dropped 
to an estimated 56 billion this year from 
$10.4 billion in 1989, said Martin Hingley 
of International Data Corp. in London. 
Europe’s overall computer market, includ- 
PCs and software, has surged to $120 
lion, he added.

Open High Low Lag as. 


Bloomberg Business News 

NEW YORK — US. stock 
prices rose Thursday, with 
shares of companies sensitive to 
the economy’s cycles posting 
the largest gains. 

Modest advances by Trea- 
sury bonds and unexpectedly 


strong June sales reports by 
some retail chains helped stocks 

The Dow Jones industrial av- 
erage rose 13.92 points to 
3,688.42, its fourth straight 
gain, as General Motors, Beth- 
lehem Steel, Boeing and Philip 
Morris shares all advanced. 

GM rose 2Vfc at 51%, Boeing 
rose Hi to 47%, and Bethlehem 
Steel rose 1% to 20%. 

Almost four stocks rose for 
every three that declined on the 
New York Stock Exchange, 
where volume grew to 258.50 
million shares from 235.65 mil- 
lion Wednesday. 

Second-Quarter profits at 
steel, aluminum and machinery 
c ompani es “will be greater than 
many people think," said Law- 
rence Rice, chief market strate- 
gist at Josephthal Lyon & Ross. 
Many of the nation’s biggest 

industrial companies “have 
been cutting overhead for 

Retailers’ stocks gained after 
major companies reported 
strong sales last month. Day- 
ton- Hudson said sales in stores 
open more than one year 
jumped 12.7 percent, and May 
Department Stores reported a 5 
percent gain. 

J.C. Penney Co.’s stock price 
fdl 2% at 48 1 fl in late trading, 
but Dayton-Hudson Corp. 
climbed 1% to 82, Wal-Mart 
gained % to 24%, Sears added W 
at 47%, Circuit City Stores Inc. 
advanced % to 20%. 

The slock rally outweighed 
concerns that Friday’s U.S. un- 
employment report for June 
could be so strong it helps 
prompt the Federal Reserve 
Board to raise interest rates for 
a fifth time this year. 

Investors are looking to 
June’s nonfarm employment 
statistics by the Labor depart- 
ment to gauge the strength of 
the U.S. economy and decide if 
the Fed will raise rates to Tight 
inflation, traders said. 

The benchmark 30-year 
Treasury bond was priced at 84 
6/32, with the yield at 7.61 per- 
cent, up from Wednesday.

■ Dollar Edges Lower 
The dollar fell against the 
Deutsche mark and the yen on 
Thursday as traders speculated 
that leaden of the G-7 coun- 
tries will do little at their sum- 
mit to bolster the flagging U.S. 
currency, Bloomberg Business 
News reported from New York.

The dollar closed at 1.5716

Mr. Berlusconi’s comments 
were the latest in a series by G-7 
leaders and senior government 
officials indicating that they 
were not willing to try to sup- i 
port it by buying dollars in the 
foreign exchange market Eco- 
nomics Minister Gunter Rex- 
rodt of Germany said Wednes- 
day that efforts to support the 
dollar were sure to fail. 

“The G-7 is sending signals 
that we shouldn’t expect any 
action from them in the curren-

Corp. “Of course, they could be 
trying to fake us out."

Royal Oak Offers $1.4 Billion for Lac 

Bloomberg Buzinas News 

TORONTO — Royal Oak Mines Inc. 
made an unexpected offer to buy Lac Min- 
erals Ltd. for about 2 billion" Canadian 
dollars (S1.4 billion) in stock and cash, a 
transaction that would create Canada’s 
largest producer of gold. 

The acquisition would catapult three- 
year-old Royal Oak, whose production last 
year was a third of Lac’s, into the ranks of 
North America’s major producers. 

Margaret Witte, Royal Oak’s chairman 
and chief executive officer, said she be- 

lieved the combined companies could cut 
operating costs by more than $40 million 
in I99S and almost $50 million in 1996. 

Lac said it would evaluate Royal Oak's 
proposal "with a view to the best interests 
of Lac and its shareholders." It did not 
elaborate, but analysts said the offer had 
little chance erf succeeding on the toms 

Royal Oak will offer 3.75 dollars in cash 
and 1.75 Royal Oak shares for each share 
outstanding of Lac, valuing the bid at 
13.16 dollars a share. 

In late trading Thursday, Royal Oak 
stock was down 25 cents to 5475 dollars 
on the Toronto Stock Exchange, while Lac 
shares rose 1.125 dollars to 12.50 dollars. 

Royal Oak, based m Vancouver, was 
formed by the merger of five mining com- 
panies in 1991. It operates four gold mines 
m Canada. Royal Oak said it expected to 
produce 375,000 ounces of gold this year. 

Lac, erf Toronto, has gold nrinmg opera- 
tions in North America and South Ameri- 
ca. It produced 1.11 million ounces of gold 
nx 1993.

Budapest Shares Bubble Again 

Roller-Coaster Market May Be Boosted by Econ 

By Heniy Copeland 

Special to the Herald Tribune 

"BUDAPEST — The victory of Hunga- 
ry's former Communists in elections in 
May may give pause to some foreign 
investors cons dering Budapest equities. 

Bat Ideal stock analysts say not to 
worry. After all, it was these same politi- 
cians who first permitted equity issues at 
the beginning of 1989. The laissez-faire 
Communists had already granted con- 
siderable autonomy to enterprises, en- 
couraged foreign investment and ended 
many price controls. 

In any case, Budapest’s exchange has 

The market snored through two rounds 
of elections in May that gave the Social- 
ist Party, an unexpected 32-seat majority 
in Hungary’s 386-member Parliament 
Now, analysts here say that -a rebound- 
ing economy, pools of capital dedicated 
to Eastern Europe and attractive equity 
prices will attract investors. 

The Budapest Stock Exchange opened 
in June 1990 with the listing of Ibusz, a 
state-owned travel company that was 
dominant in its field at the time. The first 
offering on the post-Gommunist ex- 
change was Ibusz, and its shares were 
priced at 4,900 forints, or $48 at current 
exchange rates. They soared to 12.000 
within days. 

But Ibusz foundered when it had to 
contend with vigorous competition, and 
the stock now trades at 1,320. Investors 
who joined in a euphoric first wave of 
buying have lost as much as 95 percent of 
their capital. 

Other stocks performed only a little 
better, as the collapse of trade with the 
former Soviet bloc and a record-breaking 
two-year drought sliced 20 percent off 

gross domestic product between 1989 and 
1993. Having risen as high as 1,227 in 
March 1991, the index of the nine equities 
that make up two-thirds of the Budapest 
exchange's capitalization reached an all- 
time low of 667 in May 1993. 

The situation improved later in 1993, 
however. Istvan Racz, an economist for 
CS First Boston in Budapest, said there 
was a “tremendous improvement in 


earnings, both for the broader economy 
and the stocks traded on the exchange.” 

Just as important to the market's re- 
vival, Polish equity prices soared eight- 
fold in 1993 and the Czech market 
surged nearly fourfold between Septem- 
ber 1993 and February 1994. This helped 
Budapest prices to nearly double in the 
second half of 1993 and to double again 
in January. 

Volume on the Budapest market rose 
eightfold from the first to the second half 
of 1993, and volume in January alone 
equaled that for all of 1993. 

“There is a growing sense that Poland, 
the Czech Republic and Hungary form a 
region: Centred Europe,” said Mr. Racz. 
“This sort of regional treatment means 
that whenever prices are too high in 
Poland or the Czech Republic, people 
are inclined to see what is on sale in 

The recent routs In Warsaw, where 
stock prices fell 60 percent, and Prague, 
where they slid 50 percent have hurt 
Budapest prices, but Hungarian shares 
touched bottom more quickly and have 
stabilized above 1,400, off a third from 
January's high of 2,190. 

ted By economy 

Having watched their fledgling market 
soar and dive twice, many Hungarian 
investors have become wary and prefer 
one-year government securities, which 
yield 25 percent, to equities. 

Julian Cooke, manager of the S100 
million Hungarian investment Co. for 
John Govett & Co. in London, said he 
had been buying Budapest equities at 
current levels. ‘The growth of I or 2 
percent projected for Hungary’s econo- 
my this year may not be that exciting in 
itself, but it is symbolic of having turned 
the corner.” he said. 

Mr. Cooke listed other positive fac- 
tors, such as a substantial off-th e-books 
economy that was “quite dynamic.” He 
also said that most companies had re- 
structured themselves enough to com- 
pete, (hat Eastern trade links were reviv- 
ing and that the German economy, a key 
market for exports, was rebounding. 
Oversubscriptions for recent new issues 
have also buoyed the market, be said. 

At the same lime, analysis warn that 
the market has only 31 stocks and a capi- 
talization of little more than 51 billion, 
making it vulnerable to sudden move- 
ments. The surge that nearly doubled the 
value of the market in January was fuded 
by volume of only S80 million. 

This spring, companies such as CS 
First Boston and Baring Brothers 
launched S500 million in new equity 
funds dedicated to Eastern Europe’s 
markets, and brokers hope to entice 
some of that money to Budapest Trad- 
ing with an average price/earnings ratio 
of 14, the slocks look especially attrac- 
tive in comparison with those in Poland, 
where the ratios are often two to three 
times as high.

ZURICH — Swissair, the na- 
tional carrier, will reshuffle top 
management in January in a bid 
to make its flight operations 
profitable again. 

A six-member management 
group will succeed the current 
seven-member airline manage- 
ment group. Swissair repeated 
that it does not expect flight 
operations to be profitable this 

The new group will be re- 

sponsible for the main airline 
and for the other Swissair sub- 
sidiaries, which range from ca- 
tering units to hotels. 

“We didn’t have a clear 
group management before, or a 
dear division of tasks,” a com- 
pany spokesman said. 

Swissair said it wanted to cut 
100 million Swiss francs ($75 
million) in costs this year and 
had warned that doing so could 
mean eliminating some jobs. 

But in the management reshuf- 
fle, only one job will disappear 
— that of the former deputy 
president, Erich GeULinger. 
who retired June 30. 

Last year, Swissair said it had 
group net profit of 59 million 
francs despite a “heavy loss" on 
flight operations. 

The company said in its July 
newsletter that total revenue 
had fallen in May from a year 
earlier, although cost-cutting 
had softened the impact Pas- 

senger traffic rose 1 percent in 
May. while total traffic volume 
increased 6 percent 

In the past management also 
was responsible for nonairline 
operations, while the charter 
airline subsidiary. Batair/CTA, 
was run separately. 

Under the new structure, Ba- 
lair will be integrated into the 
group. The regional airline 
Crossair will remain an inde- 
pendent subsidiaiy with its own

Kawasaki Steel 9 s Big Bet 

Can an Underwriter Help It Pay Off? 

Bloomberg Bustnen News 

TOKYO— Kawasaki Steel Corp. has 100 
billion yen ($1 billion) riding on whether its 
stock pace wifi top 441 yea by September. 

Thanks to Kawasakfs powerhouse under- 
writer, Nomura Securities Co., which has is- 

of Kawasaki shares in recent mouths, the gam- 
ble may pay off. The recovering steelmaker's 
shares have already climbed 33 percent this 
year, finishing at 411 yen on Thursday. 

Nomura’s efforts are another example erf the 
clubby world of Japanese corporate finance. 

The 441 yen mark is the key because that is 
the price at which investors would cash in 
about 120,000 warrants issued by Kawasaki 
and attached to bonds that Nomura and Ya- 
Securities Co. helped selL 

Warrants are securities that grant an inves- 
tor the right to buy new shares at a predeter- 
mined pnee. If the market value of the stock 
rises above the warrant’s execution price, in- 
vestors exercising their warrants can sell their 
new shares for the higher market price and 
pocket the difference. 

While Kawasaki’s brightening prospects 
might justify some improvement in its share 
price, Nomura’s rivals are startled by the 
magnitude of the swing. While its stock has 
risen by almost a third mis year, Japan’s other 
unprofitable steel giants have gained less than 
IS percent. 

Kawasaki’s rivals say Nomura is wielding 
its considerable power to bid up the steel-, 
maker's shares to help keep a valuable corpo- 
rate efieht out of a financial jam. 

“I think it’s excessive,” Shigplri Okamoto, 
an analyst at UBS Securities, said of Kawasa- 
ki's price. Minoru Udono, a steel analyst at 
James Capel, said “Kawasaki has no divi- 
dend. Why should its price be higher?” 

The stakes are high for Kawasaki, whose 
warrants were attached to about 84.7 billion 
yen of bonds. Kawasaki hopes to pay off the 
bonds with rite money that investors trill pay 
to exercise the warrants. If they don’t exercise 
the warrants, Kawasaki may have to borrow 
to pay off die bonds. 

At the moment, things are looking up for 
the steelmaker, whose stock has dosed as high 
as 427.50 yen this year. 

There’s no denying that Kawasaki’s chang- 
ing fortunes are behind a large part of the rise. 
The betting is that Kawasaki’s cost-cutting 
efforts win make it the first of Japan’s big 
steelmakers to end its string of losses. 

“Kawasaki Steel should lead the recovery 
to profitability,” said Makoto Hiranuma, an 
analyst at Nomura. 

But traders and analysts say aggresove 
salesmanship by Nomura also is pushing Ka- 
wasaki's stock higher. “Nomura has been the 
main force behind the stock. They’ve been the 
most positive on it,” said Raymond Brcssoud, 
a trader at UBS Securities. 

As Kawasaki’s lead underwriter, Nomura 
helped the steelmaker sell $350 million of 
beads with 70,000 warrants attached in Sep- 

tember 1990. Those and 50,000 other war- 
rants attached to bonds that Yamaichi Securi- 
ties underwrote expire in September. Both 
sets of warrants entitle their holders to buy 
Kawasaki stock at 441 yen a share. 

When they were sold, Kawasaki shares 
were trading at an average of 445 yen. But by 
the summer of 199), ihe share price had sunk 
with the Japanese economy, and it has stayed 
below 440 yen ever since. Consequently, none 
of the warrants have been exercised. 

If all were exercised this year, the warrants 
would be turned into 226 million new shares, 
an amount equal to about 7 percent of Kawa- 
saki Sled's outstanding equity. For Kawasa- 
ki, they would represent roughly 100 billion 

Japan’s securities industry 
is famous for adopting 
investment strategies 
designed to preserve client 

yen in cash. But if the market price of Kawa- 
saki stock fails to rise to 441 yen before the 
warrants expire, they will represent nothing. 

Letting a large client like Kawasaki watch 
that much money vanish would be bad for 
Nomura’s business, analysts say. 

That sentiment has caused many investors 
to snap up Kawasaki shares not because they 
thought the steelmaker was climbing back to 
profitability but because they thought Nomu- 
ra would fold a way to push the shares up to 
the warrant price, said Minoru Hasegawa, an 
analyst at Barclays de Zoeie Wedd. 

Nomura is Japan’s largest brokerage con- 
cern, and it isn’t uncommon for the sheer bulk 
of its trades to move stock prices, whether it 
intends to or not, traders say. Japan’s securi- 
ties industry also is famous for adopting in- 
vestment strategies designed to preserve cli- 
ent relations. 

Japanese investors also have been known to 
bid up stocks with warrants that are about to 
expire worthless. In those cases, the investors 
are betting that the companies, rather than 
see potential capital evaporate, will leak news 
designed to lift their stock price above the 
warrants’ exercise price. 

Maltiko Yam aka wa. a Kawasaki Steel offi- 
cial, attributed the company's stock price rise 
to anticipation among investors of an im- 
provement in Japan's economy. 

Japan's 39-month-long slump has left all its 
largest steel companies deeply in deficit Nip- 
pon Steel Co.’s current loss in 1993 was 1 835 
billion yen. NKK Corp. posted a loss of 2430 
billion yen, Sumitomo Metal Industries Ltd. 
had a 33.02 billion yen loss, and Kobe Steel 
Ltd. posted a loss of 3.42 billion yen. As for 
Kawasaki, it posted a loss of 3238 billion yen, 
and hard times prompted it to suspend its 
dividend in September. 

Could Face 
At Fairfax 


SYDNEY — Rupert Mur- 
doch's purchase of a small stake 
in the rival media group John 
Fairfax Holdings Ltd. has 
raised eyebrows in investment 
circles, with analysts detecting a 
possible raid on Australia’s old- 
est and most lucrative newspa- 
per company. 

But Mr. Murdoch's News 
Corp., which has bought about 
23 percent of John Fairfax on 
the open market since June 15, 
would probably face enormous 
hurdles in raising its slake be- 
yond 5 percent, analysis said. 
They noted posable problems 
in particular with Australian 
anti-monopoly and foreign 
ownership regulations. 

Mr. Murdoch has always had 
an eye on Fairfax, and analysts 
doubt the Australian-born mo- 
gul would be content to sit tight 
with such a small stake. 

“Rupert Murdoch very, very 
rarely has a passive sharehold- 
ing in any thing ,” said Paul 
Chadwick, an analyst at Aus- 
tralia’s Communications Law 

Fairfax shares climbed 10 
cents, or 3.7 percent, to 2.80 
Australian dollars ($2.06), after 
News Corp. announced 
Wednesday that it had bought 
12 milli on shares as a "passive 
investment” in Fairfax. 

Stephen Bradshaw, a spokes- 
man for Fairfax, said that News 
Corp. currently held at least 
14.53 milli on Fairfax shares, 
representing a stake of 2.05 per- 
cent. He added that Mr. Mur- 
doch probably had purchased 
an additional 1.7 million shares 
through a separate investment 
account since June 15, bringing 
the stake to 23 percent 

Some analysts said Mr. Mur- 
doch could try to buy extra 
shares in Fairfax and spark an 
ownership struggle between its 
two biggest shareholders: Con- 
rad Black, the Canadian media 
baron, and Kerry Packer. Aus- 
tralia’s richest man and a local 
media rival. 

Other scenarios include the 
possibility of an awkward alli- 
ance between Mr. Packer, who 
has 15 percent of Fairfax, and 
Mr. Murdoch.

Carmakers Scramble to Tap India Market 

Agence France-Presse 

BOMBAY — A host of global 
automakers are setting up pro- 
duction in India, promising to 
turn the country’s passenger-car 
industry around and finally put 
customers in the driver’s seat. 

Genera] Motors Corp. and 
Chrysler Corp. erf the United 
States. Daimler-Benz AG of 
Germany, PSA Peugeot Citroen 
SA of France and Daewoo 
Corp. of South Korea have all 
signed up with local companies 
to produce a range of vehicles 
here And Flat SpA is negotiat- 
ing with potential partners de- 
spite doubts as to whether the 
more than $1 billion auto mar- 
ket — although growing fast — 
is big enough for everyone. 

Rover Group PLC of Britain 
was first lo act after India ban- 
ished protectionist controls a 
year ago, throwing open the 
country’s automobile sector in 
line with a liberalization pro- 
gram launched in 1991. 

Rover, a unit of Bayerische 
Motoren Werke AG erf Germa- 
ny, teamed up with Bangalore- 
based Sipani Automobiles Ltd. 
to produce the Rover Montego, 
billed as the most expensive car 
in India, with a showroom price 
of 950,000 rupees ($44,000). 

India's middle class of about 
200 million people makes it a 
tempting destination for car 
manufacturers looking for new, 
unsaturated markets. 

“We have a skilled work force 

unmatched by any other country 
in this region.” said Sudhakar 
Shah, director erf the Association 
of Indian Automobile Manufac- 
turers. “In addition, our invest- 
ment chmate is freer.”

been stuck with a limited and 
outdated range of high-priced 

In a seller's market, Maruli 
Udyog UdL, a joint venture be- 
tween the Indian government 
and Suzuki Motor Co.. emerged 
as the main player, with a com- 
bination of Japanese technol- 
ogy and official patronage. 

But with the opening of the 
market last year, competition 
swelled as other automakers 
jumped to capitalize on the un- 

sales to grow 2U percent in this 
year, and by the year 2000. de- 
mand is projected to rise to a 
half nrilli on cars — more than 
double current sales but a mea- 
ger figure by international stan- 
dards for an industry depen- 
dent on large volume. 

Mr. Shah said the high price 

of cars bong manufactured by 
the new joint ventures may deter 
most potential motorists, but 
those who can afford a car will 
welcome the choices available. 

“Going by the prices being 
talked about, each of the tie-ups 
is looking at the upper end of 
the market,” he said.

Orioles Sweep Mariners, 
Trail Yanks by Half-Game 

Strawberry Called BaBplaym 

. * FW1 1 ■ 

The Associated Press 

Brady Anderson has been 
torrid at the plate lately and the 
Baltimore Orioles are on a roll, 
■which is no coincidence. 

Anderson hit a three-run 
homer and substitute slaner 
Mike Oquist pitched six strong 


innings Wednesday night as 
Baltimore, playing at home, 
completed a three-game sweep 

4 victory. 

M I can’t remember too many 
games when he's hit a homer or 
something like that and we 
haven't had success,” said the 
Orioles' manager, Johnny 
Oates. “He has a knadk of find- 
ing some way to help us win," 

Rafael Palmeiro also ho- 
mered for the Orioles, who have 
won 10 of 13 to move within 
one-half game of the first-place 
New York Yankees in the AL 
East It’s the closest Baltimore 
has been to the top spot since 
May 11. 

Anderson is hitting 395 (17- 
for-43) with four homos, 10 
RBIs and 10 runs scored in bis 
last 10 games. The Orioles are 
7-3 in that span. 

His 1 1th homer, his second in 
two nights, capped a four-run 
fourth inning thatgave the Ori- 
oles a 5-1 lead. Thai doomed 
Seattle to its fourth straight 

Ken Griffey Jr. went l-for-3 
with a sacrifice fly. He has gone 
11 games and 44 official at-bats 
since hitting his 32d homer on 
June 24. 

Baltimore got its four runs in 
the fourth cm two hits off Roger 
Salkdd Chris HoHes drew a 


Thomas Closes 
On Stalled Griffey 

The Associated Press 

Ken Griffey Jr. may soon be 
chasing Frank Thomas as well 
as Roger Maris. 

Griffey didn’t homer for the 
1 1th straight game Wednesday 
night, while Thomas hit his 
31st, a two-run shot in the ninth 
that helped the Chicago White 
Sox win, 6-2, in Detroit. 

Thomas, second in the AL in 
batting, first in runs scored and 
second in homers, has hit four 
homers while Griffey has been 
at 32 and holding since June 24. 

The White Sox were limited 
to one run and five hits before 
scoring five times in the ninth 
off Mike Henneman. 

Inheriting a 2-1 lead, Henne- 
raan struck out Darren Jackson 
to open the ninth, but walked 
pinch-hitter Warren Newson. 
Mike LaVailiere singled New- 
son to third, and Ozrie Guillen 
tied it at 2 with a sacrifice fly. 

After Lance Johnson's infield 
single, Tim Raines hit a ball just 
over right fielder Junior Felix’s 
glove, scoring pinch runner 
Norberto Martin and Johnson. 

Thomas, who went 2-for-4, 
followed by lining a 2-2 pitch 
into the lower dedr in left field. 

two-out walk, Dwight Smith tri- 
pled and Salkdd walked Mark 
McLemore before Anderson hit 
a 1-1 pitch into the left-field

The Associated Press 

Darryl Strawberry; ex-Met, 
. cx-Dodger,: ex-major leaguer, 
has been called up from Triple- 
’• A Phoenix and was scheduled 
ter start Thursday in right field 
for the San Francisco Giants, a 
team tied for the worst record in 
baseball after having been 


swept by the New York Mets in 
a three-game series in which the 
losers scored only four runs. 

Their 4-1 . loss Wednesday 
night gave them a record of 3>-' 
50, tied with the San Diego Par 
dres for worst in the American 
and National Leagues. ' 

Strawberry, who underwent . 
drug rehabilitation treatment in 
April and signed with the Gi- 
ants on June 19, has not played 
a big league game in more than 
a year. He played three games 
for Phoenix, going 3-for-10 with 
two homers. 

“He can give us a bona fide 
threat, which he is.” said the 
Giants’ manager, Dusty Baker. 
“A threat can cany you a long 
way. He can help the person 
hitting in front of him. 

The thing pm concerned 
about is his baseball shape and ■ 
endurance,” said Baker, noting 
he may take Strawberry out of 
games early. 

Earlier, team o fficial* said 
Strawberry wouldn't join the Gi- 
ants nntO after the All-Star 
break. Bui their situation —9% 
games behind the Los Angdes 
Dodgers with the season more 
than halfway over — apparently 
necessitated the move. 

The Mets* Bobby Jones 
pitched shutout ball for TVs in- 
nings against them Wednesday, 

w hile Ryan Thompson was ho- 
tnering and Jose Vizcaino was 
getting four Ints for New York.

Bagwell, who missed three

By Samuel Abt 

Inunuttumal Hmdd Tribune 

PORTSMOUTH, England — They love 
Greg LeMond is Britain, celebrating him 
as the first native English-speaker to win 
the Tour de France, and Thursday morn- 
ing he won louder cheers from the fans at 
the riders’ introductions than anybody else 
in the pack. His victory in 19?>6 remains 
green, as green as the rolling fields around 

But the two Tour stages in southern 
Engl a n d have shewn just how long ago 
1986 is. Even LeMoncTs Tour victories in 
1989 and 1990 seem aotienl now as be 
continues to struggle to regain winning

Wednesday, he lost S minutes, 6 seconds 
when he faded on the final h£Q climb. 
Thursday, he lost 2:46 more and found 
himself in 145th place, 8:53 down, after the 
fifth of 21 daily stages in this 81st Tour. 

While nobody thought he had a chance 
to win the race, the question now is wheth- 
er he can make it over the first mountains 
next week if he cannot malre it over small 
hills now. 

The 187-kilometer (116-mile) stage 
Thursday, a circuit from and back into the 
E nglish Channel port of Portsmouth, 
should have offered few difficulties for 
him. It did not far most of the 181 other 

r emaining riders. 

In a sprint finish, the winner was Nicola 
Minali, an Italian with the Gewiss team. 
Second, fen- the third time in this Tour, was 
Olaf Ludwjg, a German with Telekom, 
and third was Silvio Martinello, an Italian 
with Mercatone Uno. 

Burrell, After Record: ' I Can Run Faster 9 

-The Associated Pros 

LAUSANNE. Switzerland — Leroy 
Bnnell is the wodd*s fastest human again, 
and he can only hope he will keep that 
designation a tittle longer tins time. 

Burrell re-entered the record books for 
100 meters by. bursting to a 9.85-second 
time Wednesday, one hundredth of a sec- 
ond faster than Carl Lewis’s three-year-old 
marlr . 

The 27-year-old Philadelphian s tunne d 
the 13,000 spectators at the opening race at 
the Atirietisshna meet with the first world 
TBOQid on tire Lausanne track. 

BuneHhdd the world record at 9.90 for 
TA months before Lewis snatched it in the 
1991 Tokyo world championships. 

“I came out and said it was a perfect 
day, perfect conditions,” he said. “I react- 
ed well. I knew at about 20 meters I could 
win. At 60 meters I started pulling away. 
As I crossed the finish tine and saw the 
tnne,I said it was incredible.’' 

Bunefi wasn’t modest about his perfor- 

. *T stiti feel I can nm faster, and my goal 
is to be ranked Nol 1,” he said. 

Burrdl finished a yard ahead erf David- 
son Exiawa, of Nigeria, and the U.S. cham- 
pion, Dermis Mitchell, both limed in 9.99 

The three times were aided by a wind of 
L2 meters, per second on a warm, humid 

evening. The top allowable tailwind is 2.0 
meters per second. 

“I am not satisfied with my race and 1 
thfnV 1 can beat this record soon,” Mitchell 
said. “Today was Leroy’s day, mine will 

Other challenges for the record mil 
wvnf from Lewis, Burrell’s Santa Monica 
teammate and friend, and Linford Chris- 
tie, the Olympic champion from Britain. 

Neither competed Wednesday, appar- 
ently because their asking fees were con- 
sidered too high by meet organizers. But a 
showdown may come at this summer’s 
Goodwill Games in St Petersburg. 

“Carl is probably just as happy as can be 
because we’re good friends and we can 
work together,” Burrdl said. 

The record race was a brilliant come- 
back for Bnnell, who failed to qualify for 
the 100-meter UA team in last year’s 
World Championships in Stuttgart. 

“I was impressed, but not suaprised be- 
cause I ran 9.86 in Texas in April, which 
was wind-aided,” he said. 

That time, although equal to lewis’ best, 

did not qualify for the record because the 
wind of 25 meters per second was above 
the limit 

BurreQ was a member of four world- 
record teams in the 400-meter relay. In 

Minali was timed in 4 hours, 10 minutes, 
49 seconds, a speedy 44.7 kilometers an 
hour, on a cocrf and overcast day. With all 
the leaders matching the winner’s rime, 
Flavio Vanzella, an Italian with GB-MG, 
remained in the yellow jersey. 

Once agpin English spectators showed 
up in vast numbers in the villages, small 
cities and narrow country lanes that the 
riders traversed. The race has been an 
enormous success in England, even if the 
drivers of the many cars bearing team 
officials, tour officials and journalist do 
persist in motoring along on the right 
Wherever the Tour is, it is always France 
— a truism that inspired one of the few 
criticisms during the two-day visit The 
high Tory Daily Telegraph moaned Thurs- 
day morning that the Tour “is, true to 
Gallic tradition, self -obsessed, self-impor- 
tant, self-promoting.” 

It is also the world’s greatest bicycle race 
and the tens of thousands of who cheered 
LeMond during the introductions remem- 
bered that. Sapped by fatigue, stress and a 
lost season last year after he broke a hand, 
the American, who has not won a race 
since 1992, r emains a champion here. 

LeMond looked drawn and weary dur- 
ing the applause and more so at the finish. 
Seeking help, he met before the stage with 
his former coach, Paul Koechli, a Swiss 
who ran the Vie Claire team in 1986, when 
LeMond first won the Tour. 

Koechli, who is a consultant to both 
riders and Swiss journalists now, is consid- 
ered to be an expert on training and condi- 
tioning. Although he did not reveal what 
be and LeMond discussed, it was obvious. 
“My condition now?” LeMond said a 

few days ago at his Gas team's hotel. “It's 
pood but it’s just not super. My condition 
is good," he repeated, “it’s just on the 
uphill there’s a tittle doubt 

“I’m trying to keep my morale up. I’m 
trying to kero my motivation. If I can just 
get through this Tour intact and in health, 
if I can get a tittle rest afterward, I could 
have a very good August with World Cup 
races and the world championship." 

Unbelievably, the three-time winner of 
the Tour seemed to be saying that be 
regards it as no more than a preparation 
race this time. 

Not really, he said, “I still want to try to 
win a stage and have a good Tour. I don’t 
want to give up hope. I've been known to 
make tremendous improvement in a race.” 

He thought briefly about that possibili- 
ty. “It's unlikely HI make tremendous im- 
provement,” he continued, stressing the 
adjective; “but it’s possible. I mean I’ve 
worked hard and sooner or later it’s got to 
come around.” 

But, added LeMond, who turned 33 in 
late June, “I go through each week saying 
it’s over for me, it’s over for me, it’s too 
hard. And then all of a sudden I feel a little 
better and I change my mind.” 

The final question was whether he was 
riding this Tour de France as his farewell 
to the race he decided as a teenager be 
wanted someday to win. 

“I don’t need to say farewell to the 
sport,” he said firmly. “I want to do the 
Tour for myself. 

“I have perfect explanations why I 
haven’t been doing well and, regardless of 
all my problems, I still have a desire to win 
ag ain. And that* s what keeps me going.” 

1990, he won 19 of 22 finals and was 
unbeaten in 1991 until Lewis took the 
world record. He was one of the medal 
favorites in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, 
but finished a disappointing fifth. 

He only competed in Stuttgart when 
Lewis moved aside to let him compete as 
anchor in the 400 relay. The American 
team won gold. 

The time was slower than the 1987 
World Championship and 1988 Olympic 
times of 9.83 and 9.79, set by Ben Johnson, 
of Canada. But Ins records were canceled 
after he failed a drug test. 

Lewis was training Wednesday at the 
University of Houston. 

“We realize that we can ran faster than 
956. It’s just going to take motivation and 
focus and going out there and doing it. 
Obviously, Leroy has worked to get to 
that,” he said. 

The 1991 100-meter race in Tokyo was 
one of the most exciting sprints ever. Bur- 
rdl thought the world championship was 
his until the end, but a desperate forward 
lean wasn’t enough to beat Lewis. 

Lewis passed Burrell in the last five 
meters to avenge a loss two months earlier 
at the U.S. championships. Burrell was 
timed in 9.88, a time that would have been 
a record, but Lewis finished ahead of him. 

Leroy Burrell in Lausanne: *1 was impressed, but not surprised.’

day quipped. A .controversy 
erupted, however, when Mae 
West announced plans to open 
‘The Drag,” a new play about 
the fi g ht of homosexuals to five 
their lives as' they saw fit. West 
had learned how to write this 
play from the gay men in her 
cast, and tiie intended to put gay 
men onstage portraying gay 


Broadway notables saw this as 
a threat to the legitimacy of the 
stage, and attacked the play in 
the press. On Feb. 9, 1927, 

West’s current Broadway pro- 
duction, “Sex,” was raided. West 
was sentenced to 10 days in jail, 
and “The Drag” never matte it to 
the Gay White Way. Two 
months later the New York State 
legi sl atur e amended the public 
obscenity code to include a ban 
on any play depicting “sex de- 
generacy, or sex perversion." 

The ban did not. however, 
curtail the pansy crate. As histo- 
rian George Chaunoey recounts 
in his new book, “Gay New 
York,” a complex study of the 
making of the gay male wodd 
from 1890 to 1940, the pansy 
phenomenon continued, most 
notably on the nightclub circuiL 
The influence of the panties was

Gay fife a century ago was as 
varied as it is today. An exten- 
sive gay wodd began to take 
shape in tine streets, cafeterias, 
saloons and a partme n ts of New 
York with distinctive language 
and customs. Gay men devel- 
oped a highly sophisticated sys- 
tem of subcultural codes — 
methods of dress, speech and 

style that enabled them to recog- 
nize 0 ™ another on the streets, 
at work, and at parties and bars. 

Throughout "Gay New York” 
Chaunoey notes that there are 
many areas far future histo ri ans 
to explore in further detail. Un- 
fortunately, the book has a tbe- 
■risJilra quality, particularly in an 

early section on gender studies, 
and the writing at times is dense, 
ponderous, and heavily annotat-

A New No-No in Sumo: 
No More Scalp Implants 

The Associa t ed Press 

TOKYO — Japan’s sumo wrestling as- 
sociation has banned the use of silicone 
scalp implants among short wrestlers 
wanting to meet the minimum height of 
173 centimeters (68 inrihs) required to 
compete professionally. 

The association reached the ruling, 
made public Thursday, after a 16-year-old 
apprentice wrestler had an implant to in- 
crease bis height by about 10 centimeters. 

Former Champ Douglas Hospitalized 

The Asso ciate d Press 

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Former heavy- 
weight champion James (Buster) Douglas, 
34, remained in serious but stable condi- 
tion Thursday in the hospital coronary 
care unit where he was being treated for 
diabetic keto-addosis. 

He was admitted Monday. Diabetic 
keto-addosis is a type of diabetes common 
in children unable to produce insulin. 

At the request of Douglas’ family, no 
other details would be released, a hospital 

spokesman said. He would not comment 
on earlier reports that Douglas had been in 
and out of a diabetic coma. 

Douglas was a 42-1 underdog when he 
won the title in February 1990 with a 10th- 
round knockout of then-undefeated Mike 
Tyson in Tokyo. Eight months later, an out- 
of-condition Dougjas lost his first title de- 
fense in three rounds to Evander Holyfidd. 

Douglas, who fought Tyson at 232 
pounds (105 kilograms) and Holyfield at 
247, is said to now weigh more than 350. 


Cbauncey’s research is full of 
m te w-B ri ng rev elations and in- 
sights. Of fascinating note are 
the rise of gay bathhouses dur- 
ing this era and the emergence 
of YMCAs into gay folklore as 
social centers for many new- 
comers to the city. C ha n ncey 
also points out that gay life was 
livelier and more open in Har- 
lem than in Greenwich Village. 
Harlem's premiere drag event 
was the Hamilton Lodge Ball, 
the largest annual gathering of 
lesbians and gay men. in the 
city. In 1929, for instance, 3,000 
spectators gathered to watch 
2,000 “fairies'* dance. 

In 1933 newly elected Mayor 
Fiordlo La Guaxdia issued an 
order forbidding the appear- 
ance of drag queens anywhere 
between 14m and 72nd Streets. 
But it was new restrictions en- 
forced by the New York State 
Liquor Authority that essential- 
ly curtailed the public assem- 
bling of gay men and ended the 
pansy pheacRneiKHL 

Although gay men hardly 
disappeared from the city, fra: 
the next 30 years they become 
harder for outsiders to see. 
Even hidden from society, gay 
men woe never hidden from 
one another. And, as Channcey 
shows in his book, it was a more 
“modem” society that fenced 
gay men bade into the closet.

Crime and Punishment: FIFA Edits the Book 

International Herald Tribune 

PALO ALTO — Those dose io the 
action grow accustomed to the plaintive 
cry of Bora Mflutinovic, the head coach 
of the U.S. team. 

“Hey, arbitral” bellows Bora. "Arbi- 
tro ... Ees criminate *. ” 

Many times, it is hot air. Most offi- 
cials and most players turn a deaf ear to 

Mflutinovic’s unique linguistic contor- 
tions. But the match at Stanford Stadi- 
um on Monday was different. L’arbitro 
from France, the referee J6d Quiniou. 

r xed a sporting crime and expelled 
Br azilian defender, Leonardo. 

On Wednesday, FIFA backed its offi- 
cial to the hilt, banishing Leonardo for 
four matchns. It means the Brazilian has 
played for the last time at this World 
Cup. And, he was fined $8,000. But 

tough jus- - 

tice has Rob • 

hTSSS H ug he, 


low card for his irritating, shirt-t agging 
provocation to ward Leonardo. 

Nevertheless, FIFA has used the inci- 
dent to endorse the message of this 

World Cup: Thuggery is off the menu; 
players wdl be 

for some 

time. Those of us who regard Brazilian 
soccer as among our best friends were 
appalled by Leonardo's elbow to the 
face of the U.S. player Tab Ramos. 

It took 42 games, it took Brazil, the 
champion of the Beautiful Game, to 
threat™ the fair-play essence of this 
World Cup. And it was done in Ameri- 
ca, new soccer territory, which had 31 
milli on people tuned in by TV. 

Leonardo admitted that, “On the vid- 
eo, it looks deliberate, really bad. But I 
swear to the very depths of my bein& I 
never intended harm to Tab Ramos.” 


The ban on Leonardo is tough, but 
had he done on the street what he did on 
the pitch, the law would have been 
tougher. FIFA does not have to prove 
mali ce, or give Leonardo the benefit of 

IBs action imperiled another profes- 
sional's livelihood. The pity is that Leo- 
nardo is a fine, athletic, adventurous 
player. His range of movement, his con- 
trol of Che ball, might well have placed 
him among the very best left-backs. 

Off the field, he gives the impression 
of quiet conscience. He spoke as if he 
genuinely cared about footballers run- 
ning for nrillion-dollar contracts while 
the poor in his homeland scavanged for 
su bsist ence. 

FIFA’s retribution is meant to deter 
the use of the elbow as a weapon. Smi - 

out of the game. I have not always 
backed his spetific changes, but stand 
four square behind his motives. 

We have seen at this World Cup a fear 
of official sanction that has liberated far 
more adventurous play. Not because 
greater technique can sprout overnight 
but because those who do possess craft 
and flair are liberated; they dare run 
forward without e xp ect in g to have their 
limbs battered, bruised and broken. 

It was always likely under Blatter’s 
Rule — or, if you Hke, the rules of the 

disciplinary and r e fer ee i ng committees 
— tnftt son 

larly, the fact that a record 195 yellow 
cards and 13 red cards have already 

someone would be given the 

thumb for elbowing. But there have 
been incidences of top referees failing 
lamentably to carry through the new 
dict&L It began in the opening game, 
with Arturo Brizio Carter, a Mexican 
referee champio ned in committee by his 
countryman, the FIFA senior vice presi- 
dent, Guillermo Canedo. 

Brizio Carter has refereed on all conti- 
nents with accomplished control. But 
here, running in the same dehydrating 
heat and humidity as the players, be was 

of intent. But Leonardo's elbow seemed 
to be cocked in advance, and used with 
such force that Ramos was hospitalized 
with a slight fracture of the skull above 
his left ear, and internal bleeding. 

Hie victim was not entirely innocent. 
Ref race Quiniou showed Ramos the yel- 

been issued adds weight to the 
that those who rule soccer from 
really do intend to dean up this sport 
We have only to see the degenerative 
fights, the unseemly brawls of America’s 
baseball parks to realize that a sport out 
of control loses appeal and audience. 

The crackdown on Leonardo, follow- 
ing the banishment of Maradona after 
he failed a drug test symbolizes FIFA’s 
new stance. No mdr, no more. 

Soccer brought this authoritarian 
backlash on itself. I hope, some day 
soon, that the coaches who have instilled 
into an entire generation of players that 
it is smart to negate drill with brutality 
will also get their dues. 

Sepp Blatter, general secretary of 
FIFA and a former Swiss Army colonel 
decided to hound thuggery and cheating 

erratic. He gave the first yellow card to 
Jttrgen K&mer, a German who cleanly 

won the ball with a tackle from behind 
He failed to show any card to Thomas 
H&sster, who viciously kicked the beds 
of a Bolivian. 

Moreover, Brizio Carter later sent off 
the Bolivian forward Marco Etcheverrey 
for kicking out at, but missing . Lofhar 
Matthfius. Hie referee either did not see 
or ignored the forearm that Matthaus 
pat m the face of Etcheverrey. 

Tuesday, this same referee sent off 
Gianfranco Zola, who, again, had tried 
and! failed to retaliate for an earlier fouL 
Than Brizio Carter let off Paolo Maldini 
without censure after Maldini hacked 
down Rasdndi Yclrini as the Nigerian 
raced toward the goal 

Brizio Carter and Syria’s Jamal Sharif 

littered Tuesday’s games with 17 yellow 
and three red cards between them. In 
both matches, the referees committed 
gross errors of judgment 

The previous day, FIFA carried out 
its threat to dismiss referees who err, as 
humans will Kurt Rothhsberger of 
Switzerland and PierLuigi Pairetio of 
Italy were sent home unceremoniously. 
That set alarm bells rin g in g . RSthiis- 

berger is among the favonte referees of 
Blatter; Pairetto is one of the breed of 
h andso mely remunerated Italian refer- 
ees chosen by Paolo Casarin, the former 
World Cup arbiter who advises FIFA. 

For Pairetto, the hunuHation of being 
sent home is serious. He happens to be 
the trade union leader of Itafys referees, 
a group regarded as the model for a 
future professional approach to referee- . 

I sawa great deal or expert officiating 
from ROthlisberger and Pairetto. But 
one error each, bad ones, they are shown 
FIFA’s red card. This, surely, is self- 
defeating. •’ 

FIFA, Blatter and . Casarin chose 
these referees, FIFA changed the terms 
of contract, moved the goalposts in 
terms of interpreting the rules. So the 
failing s of fallible humans reflects on 
FIFA itself. If it chooses the refs, and 
the refs were failures, there may be 
sane thing wrong with die judgment or 
the system of selection. 

By publicly, instead of privately, 
standing these re f u ees down. Blatter 
has added humiliation to failure. Not 
only does rhfc ridicule ambi tious indi- 
viduals, not only most it damage their 
egos, it stands as a warning to those who 
aspire to the top. 

That may have repercussions. Those 
who stay become frightened, those who 
go may not return. “Arbitro ... Ees

Vogts’ Risk on ‘Gray Wolf 5 Pays Off for Germany 

Fernando Hierro, a 


in Massachusetts. 

By Steven Goff 

Washington Pan Seen or 

CHICAGO — In the days 
before the World Cup, Germa- 
ny’s coach, Berti Vogts, began 
to wonder if be had set the right 
combinations for his defending 

phamp i nryi if ha had mprl p 

derisions about his young play- 
ers and, in one de vilish thought, 
if it made sense to bring bade a 
34-year-old forward nicknamed 
“Gray Wolf,” whose greatest 
days seemed well behind him. 

Rudi VBfler, one of the most 
beloved German players ever, 
had announced his retirement 
bom the national team in Octo- 
ber 1992. He had a runner-up 
trophy from the 1986 World 
Cup and a championship honor 
from four years agp. IBs career, 
be said at the time, would be 
limited to his professional dub, 
Olympique Marseille, in Franca 

But earlier this year, as he 
began to put the finishing 
touches on his 22-man roster, 
Vogts found a soft spot, a sliver 
of vulnerability in an otherwise 
solid lineup. He needed another 
scorer, a veteran to complement 
the newest star, Jurgen Klins- 
mann. V6Uer, who started his 
inter nati onal career when some 
German players were only 
dreaming about the World Cup, 
was the answer. 

It wasn’t difficult for Vogts, a 
fo rme r n ational team star him- 
self, to convince VoOerto return. 
“After one glass of white wine,” 
the coach said with a twinkle in 
his eye, “things were okay.” 

And now, as Germany pre- 
pares for Sunday’s quarterfinal 
against upset-minded Bulgaria 
at Giants Stadium, things are 
better than okay for Voller. 

Saturday, in ins fust start of 
the tournament, he needed only 
sax min utes to put his team 
ahead of Belgium in a round-of- 
16 match. A minute later, be 
threatened a gain, stin ging a 
short header that tested the 
goalkeeper. And later in the 
first half, after setting up Klins- 
mann’s go-ahead shot, his head- 
er provided Germany with a 
two-goal lead. 

Rsbono p tot. 

Rudi Vofler, the German striker, stretched before a practice io Hinsdale, Illinois. 

wanted to be ready. I knew my 
hour would come.” 

“1 knew 1 wouldn’t be able to 
play in all seven games,” VdUer 
said about the prospects for 
playing every match if Germa- 
ny reached the championship 
game. “But if my turn came, I 

VOIler’ s return adds another 
solid link to the Ger man ma- 
chine. Klinsmann, who has 
scored in every match so far, 
has been the main target of op- 
posing defenses. 

But now that he is reunited 
with his striking partner from 

the 1990 World Cup, there may 
be too many scoring threats for 
one defense to handle. With 
VOller playing all the way for- 
ward, Klinsmann is able to sit 
back a few strides and use his 
imagination to create as well as 

“We work wdl together,” 
said Klinsmann, 29. “We know 
the way each other moves, we 

know where we want the balL 
T here ’s a blind understanding 
between us.” 

A brilliant examp le of tha t 
unspoken c ommunic ation oc- 
curred Saturday on Klins- 
mann’s first- half goal Voller 
passed to Klinsmann in a tight 
space. Klinsmann niftily re- 
turned the ball with his heel 
VOIler darted past two defend- 

ers, hurdling the second to 
avoid, being tripped. The ball 
rolled into open space, but 
VOUer knew it was right where 
Klinsmann wanted it Voller 
gave way, and in a flash, Klins- 
mann nailed a hard-shot along 
the turf into the far eraser of 
the net. 

“I could see in practice that 
Rudi was ready,” said Vogts, 
who in the first round had 
called on the veteran for rally a 
29-minute stint against Spain. 
“He gave our a different 

The performance moved 
VOUer into second place on 
Germany’s all-time scoring list 
with 47 goals in 89 appearances, 
surpassing Karl-Heinz Rmn- 
menigge’s.45 tallies. He proba- 
bly never win catch Gerd Mail- 
er, the German superstar of the 
1970s who had 68 goals in only 
62 matches. But then again, few 
players are given the opportuni- 
ty to come oat of retirement to 
play in the World Cup. 

In the 1986 tournament in 
Mexico, VOUer scored three 
in the first round 
itland, in the semifinal wm 
over France and in a loss to 
Diego Maradona and Argenti- 
na in the final 

In Italy four years ago, he 
scored during easy first-round 
victories over Yugoslavia and 
the United Arab Emirates. 
And, although the G ermans 
went on to win their third world 
championship, VOBer is best re- 
membered by some for an inci- 
dent in the second round 
against the Netherlands. 

The Dutch star, Frank Rij- 
kaard, was given a yellow card 
for tripping VOUer, who then 
argued that the infraction de- 
served a red card. On tire ensu- 
ing free lock, Rijkaard ap- 
proached VOIler and spit on 
him. Both were ejected. 

Two years later, VOUer re- 
tired from the national team. In 
1993, he helped Marseille win 
tire French League title and the 
European Champions Cup, 
honors that were later taken 
away becanse of match-fixing 


But when Vogts came calling 
in May, Voller was ready to 
return. “It was a great feding to 
play for my country again;’* he 
said. “And it is a greater feeting 
to help my country win again.* 

Italy vs. Spain: On Both Sides, 


By Ian TTiomsen 

International Herald Tribune 

BOSTON — Sflvio Berlus- 
coni bolds to the theory that 
soccer dubs will overtake the 
nati onal tpamc in terms of pop- 
ularity — that someday the peo- 
ple will fed more kinship to the 
dub he owns, AC Milan, than 
to Italy. 

It’s become quite an incesto^ 
ous (tf not hypocritical) point of 
view, considering that the 
"Forza Italia” party slogan 
which elected Berlusconi to 
prime minister this year was 
borrowed directly from the Ital- 
ian national soccer team. 

If it turns out, however, that 
Berlusconi is tire visionary he 
makes himself out, then 
ps the decentralization 
nations to chibs is bap- 
before our eyes. Here on 
y, Italy will meet Spain 
in a quarterfinal of the World ■ 
Cup. Just seven weeks ago, Italy 
effectively beat Spain, 4-0, in 
the final of the European 
Champions Cup in Athens. 

Tbm, tire score was AC Mi- 
lan 4, Barcelona 0. 

Now that result has added 

meaning. Italy used seven Mi- 
lan players in its opening 1-0- 
lass to Ireland three weeks ago, 
though only five figure to be 
available Saturday. As for 
Spam , its coach, Javier Clemen- 
te, has recast his team by select- 
ing nine Barcdona players as to 
just three from Real. Madrid. 
It’s hard to argue with Clemen- 
te's changes, as Spain had faded 
to move past tire quarterfinals 
since 1950. 

“I have said it before and I 
still think so — Barcelona play- 
ers are the best around,” Cre 
mente said. “They are without 
doubt the best aQ-ariniriders, 
technically and in terms of 
speed and strength.” 

Their club coach, Johan 
Cruyff, said as much just two 
months ago. Indeed. 12 Barce- 
lona players have advanced to 
the last eight of tire World 
— including Rom&rio of Bi 

Rrmaldj&oeman df&eNe&e^' Baggio. But Baggio, unlike Sa- . " 
lands arid HrisCo Stuiidjkw of ..vicevic. hasn’t been able to in-

Yet Milan, to tire defight of The raw* and the star have . . 

Italy*s coach, Ariigo Sacchi, 
turned out to be much more tire 
efficient team that nig ht. 

Sacdn, of course, Used to 
coach Milan, his reputation 
built upon Milan's Dutch eraof 
Ruud Gullit, Marco Van Bask 
ten and Frank ‘Rijkaard.; 
Though Sacchi has failed to re- 
create that glory with the na- 
tional team, tire-country saw 
hope in Milan’s upset of Barce- 
lona. Tbat night, Milan was 
lacking some of its best parts: 
Van Basten, to ngnry; French 
striker Jean-Pierre Papin, who 
newer panned out .with JM 

slow to recover from. an auto- 
mobile accident, and central de- 
fenders Franco Bare si and 
Alessandro Costacnrta, sus- 
pended for previous yellow 
cards. ’’ ' r "

the seqond 7 i 9 uhfL 2 -l comeback

to hire in Barcelona whole — if 
that means getting Romirio, 
Stoitchkov and Koeman. With- 
out them, tire Spaniards have

They are unrelenting rivals in Siam’s first 
diviaon, where Romano, 28, plays for tradi- 

tional power FC Barcelona, and Bebeto, 30, 
for upstart Depoittvo de la Coruna. 

But .the rivalry began more than a de- 
cade ago, when they were correctly identi- 
fied as two of Brazil’s rising stars, and, 
according to team nffi rials, stemmed from 
a personality dash. 

For evidence of that, look no further 
than their lifestyles in Spain. Bebcto is a 
devoted family man who brought his 
housekeeper from Brazil to Spain so that 
the lives of his wile and children would not 

Ronririo also is married and has two i —

teammate Hristo Stokhkov of Bulgaria, 
are vigorous participants in the city's mid- 
nigbt-to-dawn nightclub scene. 

. Evenmrecem kidnap inddents in Brazil 
involving the families of both players, Ro- 
mirio’s was more dramatic. 

Reputed mobsters tried to kidnap Bebe- 
to’swife and brother, but five others actu- 
ally did abduct Romfirio’s 62-year-old fa- 
ther, Edevair Souza de Faria. Demanding 
ransom, of $7 million, the abductors held 
him for six days before theywere caught 
by police. Not only did they not harm mm, 
they provided him with a mattress, cold 
beer and a television so he could watch his 
son play a game in Spain. 

But although it is convenient for the 
media to paint contrasting pictures of the 
two strikers, they are not so different as it 
appears on the surface. Roznirio flaunts 
his impoverished childhood, speaking of- 
ten of the Rio de Janeiro shantytown 
where he grew up and the coins he earned 
by washing car windshields at stop lights. 
Jos6 “Bebcto” Roberto Gama de Oliveira 
does not talk as much about it, but he also 
grew up poor in the provincial city of 

Both also are secure enough in their 
talents to speak out against their coaches. 
After leading Brazil to the silver medal in 
the 1 988 Summer Olympics, they protested 
bitterly when Sebastiao Lazaroni used 
th em for a combined total of only 72 
minutes during the 1990 Worid Cup. 

Bebeto was so put off by LazaronFs 
successor as the national coach, Paulo Ro- 
berto Falcao, that he quit until a new 
coach, Carlos Alberto Parreira, was hired. 
The injured party then was Rom&rio, 
whose complaints when left out of the 
lineup for an exhibition game against Ger- 
many were so divisive that Parreira sus- 
pended him for nine months. Brought bade 
to the team for the final Worid C 
tying game against Uruguay, 
scored both goals in a 2-0 victory. 

The ability to score is something else 
Bebeto and Romano have in common. 
After Bebeto led Spain's first division in 
1992-93 with 29 goals, Ronririo led last 
season with 30. In the first round of this 
Worid Qip, RomArio had three of Brazil’s 
six goals and precipitated another when he 
was fouled in die penalty area. Bebeto had 
one goal and one assist, but at least one 
opponent said be thought Babeto was a 
more valuable player than Romirio. 

“Bebeto can do more," Samuel Eketne 
Ndiba, a defender for Cameroon, said af- 
ter a 3-0 loss to Brazil "He can create 
thin g s with his dribbling and crossing 
passes. He’s more athletic. He is more than 
just a goal getter." 

Bebeto, at S feet 10 inches and 145 
pounds, is quick, agile and so adept with 
tlw baB that Pel6 has suggested be should 
be the play-making midfielder. If he has a 
weakness, it is that defenders can knock 
Him off the ball — if they can catch him. 
When they do, he often whines to the 
referee. Ram&rio stuck him with the nick- 
name charao, or crybaby. 

Romirio, by contrast, stands only 5~ 
feet-6-inches, but be weighs 154 pounds 
and cannot be pushed around. His weak- 
ness is that he seldom will go searching for 
the ball, but when it comes to Him he can 
be devastating. 

“I stand there,” he says, "pretending I 
am dead." 

Parreira calls him “the king of the penal- 
ty area." 

Romirio stOl advises Parreira on the line- 
up. When Pete recently said that Romirio 
should let the coach coach, Romirio re- 
sponded by calling Pdfe “menially retarded" 

But Parreira has learned to let RomArio 
be RomArio. The forward, who says that 
practicing is a waste of calories, was ex- 
cused from the team’s final tr ainin g ramp 
before leaving for the United States be- 
cause he wanted to play volleyball on the 
beach with friends. 

Asked recently if RomArio is a problem, 
Parreira said, “Yes, he’s a big problem — 
for the other team." 

RomArio has tried hard to become a 
team player for the World Cup. 

“I know I am a difficult guy,” he says. 
“It's because I’m authentic. I say what 1 
think to your face. But the other players 
like me because they know that if RomArio 
does well, the team will get results. Pve 
been telling everybody that I'm ready to 
give my blood for this Cup." 

So far, he has fit in wen with bis team- 
mates, playing drums for their improvisa- 
tional samba band. As long as he continues 
scoring, it does not matter if he marches to 
a different conga. 

e to Survive? 

By Alex Yararis 

" New York Times Service : ' 

New Jersey — Bulgaria came to 
the United States without a vic- 
tory in 16 games in five previ- 
ous Worid Cop appearances. 
They were the last of the Euro- 
pean countries to qualify, and 
they did that by scoring a goal 
in the last 10 seconds against 
France in Paris. 

When theywere shut out by 
Nigeria in their first game of 
this year’s finals, it looked as. if 
the Bulgarians would poll their 
same cud fast fade: two more 
losses in the first round and off 
they would go into the Balk™ 

So why is Bulgaria one of the 
eight countries left in this 
World Cup when 16 other 
^Countries with more impressive 
soccer c redentials have been 
e&mhuued from the quadrenni- 
al tournament? 

Bulgaria’s surprising success 
has bem enhanced by the dan- 
destine atmosphere suxTound- 
; its efforts. ThCTarethemost 
lt-Dpped bunch in the tour- 
nament. Not only have they 
dosed most of their practices, 
they have seldom made them- 
selves available to the media. 
And they have not been exactly 
forthcoming with tournament 
organizers either on the release 
of team information. 

One of the reasons for all the 
secrecy, according to a source 
dose to the team, is the con- 
stant in-fighting between the 
delegation’s brass and the 
coaching staff andpkyexs. 

Reticence and off-stage bide- 

ts surged into file final eight

. Giants Stadium. 

Just how did Bulgaria do it? 
Hie factual answers to the 
restkm are easily identifiable: 
recce, Argentina and Mexico, 
ic countries Bul g a ri a defeated 
i that order. - But the deeper 
ispiratkm for the victories has 
jme from players fike Hristo 
loichkov aid Borislav MIhay- 
v and the team’s coach, Dam- 
ir Penev. 

Staichkov, 29, a crafty play* 
■atffr and scorer who has led 
arcdcma to four consecutive 
ties in the Spanish League, has 

ie nerves to go with his scoring 
rowess. He scored the tone 
Dal in regulation in the second- 
mnd victory against Mexico 
ad was dfsigr^ted to be the 
ist player to take a penalty 
ick for Bulgaria. 

But Stoichkov didn’t have to 
diver on that promise because 
is teammates built an insnr- 
lountabie 3-1 lead lead on the 
enalty kicks. „ 

“I’m very glad we won, 
toichkov said. “It doesn’t mat- 
ae bow we won.” 

Mihaylov, 31, the . reliable 
goalkeeper, embodies thephoo- 
mx-hke qualifies of fins myste- 
rious team. In 1986, Mihaylov 
was suspended from the nation- 
. al team for fife by .the Commu- 
nist Party’s central committee 
for fais mvritvement m a violent 
match between the country’s 
two top teams, Spartak JLefsky 
and CoKA. 

Bulgaria’s soccer authorities 
..defied the government and lift- 
ed the ban later, that year, al- 
lowing Mihaylov to play for 
: Bulgaria m the 1986 Worid Cop 
in Mexico. Mihaylov did little 
to justify the federation's belief 
in him in 1986, with a 2-0 loss to 
Mexico his biggest setback. 

But here, against Mexico, he 
was marvelous. Appearing in

Like the vast majority of the 
Bulgarians, Penev is a man of 
few words. But he is a master of 
soccer strategy and adjustment 
_ In a classic example of his 
coaching deftness, Penev 
switched his nephew, LubosLav 
Penev, from midfield to attack 
to play behind Enril Kosta- 
dmov in last November’s last- 
chance qualifying game in Par- 

The two players, who have 
been dose friends, combined 
for Rostadinov’s deciding, goal 
with 10 seconds left that earned 
Bulgaria a ticket to the World 
-Cop in the United States. 

Once here, Bulgaria stum- 
bled out of the gate a g ai n st Ni-

beating Greece. But it was then

Argentina last Thursday night 
that seemed to inspire a coun- 

“After the win against Ar- 
gentina,” said midfielder Ior- 
dan Letchkov, “there was talk 
in the streets of Bulgaria that 
we’re going to the finals.” 

It was Letchkov’s penalty 
kick against Mexico's goalkeep- 
er, Jorge Campos, that sealed

Bomb Joke Backfires on Dutch Reporter 

&mpikd by Ovr Staff From Dispatches 

AMSTERDAM — A Dutch journalist 
whose joke that his bag contained bombs 
arid guns had caused the Dutch team’s 
plane to be grounded lor nearly five hours 
in Orlando, Florida, was ordered home 

“We have called Lex Muller back," said 
WDlem Vergeex, deputy editor of the daily 
Algcmeen Dagblad. 

Dutch preparations for its quarterfinal 
against Brazil were thrown into disarray 
Wednesday when the sportswriter, flying 
with the team, told airtight attendant injest 
that he had a bomb. 

That lead to an extensive search of the 
p lane at the airport in Orlando, where the 
Dutch team has its training camp. The 
tram, which finally arrived in Dallas with- 
out Muller, had to practice at dusk at the 
Southern Methodist University practice 
facility instead of during the afternoon. 

“The whole day schedule was a mess 
because of it,” goalkeeper Ed de Goey 

Instead of leaving Orlando at 11 A_M. 
EOT as scheduled, the chartered Boeing 
727, with 163 people aboard, was towed to 
a remote area of the airport, where bomb- 
sniffing dogs checked over the aircraft and 
die luggage- No bomb was found and the 
plane finely took off at 4 P.M. 

Authorities took Muller, 54, seriously 
when he made the joke, and then took him 
into custody for questioning. Dutch soccer 
federation officials said he was released 
late Wednesday after the embassy inter- 

In the United States, it is both a state 
and federal offense to make a false bomb 
report, even jokingly. 

“They don’t have a sense of humor," 
said the Dutch press officer, Gerd StoDc. 
“It’s as if they cannot tell the difference." 

A flight attendant asked Muller to put 
his cany-on bag in the overhead bin, "he 
didn’t want to do it, and he told her it had a 
bomb in it,” said Police Sergeant Mike 
Holloway. “She told him, *Sir, don’t even 
joke about that We take that very serious- 
ly.’ And then he said it again.” 

The flight attendant reported that Mull- 
er then said he had a gun in the bag. 
Holloway said Muller told police be actu- 
ally said there was no gun in the bag. 

The flight attendant told the pilot, who 
notified authorities and evacuated the

2 More Arrested in Escobar Slaying in Colombia 

CaapOed by Oir Staff Frtm Dispatches 

BOGOTA — The national 
prosecutor-gtsnentTs office said* 
Wednesday it had three sus- 
pects under arrest fra the mur- 
der of soccer player Andris Es- 
cobar, nod insisted the shooting 
was not premeditated. 

One man, Humberto Mufi6z, 
has already confessed to shoot- 
ing Escobar outside a Medellin 
night dub last Saturday. 

' The other two suspects, 
brothers Pedro and Santiago 
Gallon, were being held as ac- 

complices to the killing, a 
spokeswoman for the prosecu- 
tor-general’s office said. 

Escobar was killed after an 
argument with a group of peo- 
ple said to have been angered 
by the goal he accidentally 
scored against his team during a 
match in the Worid Cup. 

Drag traffickers allegedly bet 
millions of dollars on the team 
and might have wanted to take 
revenge fra its dismal perfor- 
mance rinrfng the international 
tournament in the United 

States. The national team was 
eliminat ed from the tourna- 
ment after winning only one of 
three matches. 

Mundz said in a local radio 
interview he was ashamed of 
what he had done, but insisted 
he did not know who the player 
was when he fired. 

“Pm sony," he said from his 
prison cell m Bogota. 

Mufidz was the driver for 
Santiago Gallon Heaao, a 
ranch er whom authorities said 

bet heavily and lost on the Co- 
lombian team. 

The police spokeswoman 
also denied reports that police 
had earlier detained three other 
suspects in the case. 

She said three people had 
been arrested in Medeflin, but 
“these people have absolutely 
nothing to do with the Escobar 
case." She said police stumbled 
across them during a series of 
house raids conducted through- 
out Medellin after the killing

New York Tima Service 

NEW YORK — The quarter- 
finals have arrived, and the 
three triple champions are 
in contention. Brazil, Italy and 
Germany have each won the 
trophy three times, and perhaps 
jtheir presence in the final eight 
is testimony to some sort of 
sporting logic. 

But perhaps not. 

If logic held, then the fact that 
there are seven European teams 
among the final eight should 
mean European soccer is superi- 
or to any other, but any reason- 
able fan knows that isn’t true. 

As usual, soccer is more com- 
plicated than that. 

Because nationalistic feeling 
plays such an important role in 
this most international of sport, 
and especially in the crucible of 
nationafism. the Worid Cup, 
there is a tendency to view ev- 
erything through a stereotyping 

By that view, Colombia lost 
because it lacked mental tough- 
ness; Sweden is still around be- 
cause the Swedes “keep cool" 
under pressure. Through that 
lens, the Argentines are weak- 
willed and paranoid, the Ital- 
ians volatile and hot-headed 
and the Germans as precise and 
dependable as the Beriin-to- 
Boam train schedule. 

Of course, such stereotypes 
fall apart on inspection. It is 
Germany that has seen its team 
tom by volatile tempers off the 
field, and whose team three 
times in four games lost control 
of games it should have but- 
toned up easily. 

The Italians have been any- 
thing but hot-headed. Thor 
major problem, until their late- 
game triumph over Nigeria, has 
been pallid, befuddled effort, 
especially that of Roberto Bag- 
gio, who was supposed to be the 
tournament’s inevitable star. 

And what of Brazil, and the 
image of a flamboyant, easygo- 
ing carefree people? Here we 
are brought up short again, by 
the brilliant way the Brazilians 
haveplayed, defensively as well 
as offensively, reminding every- 
one that, above all, world-class 
soccer is about the skill and 
talent of players. Style is irrele- 
vant until the team in question 
is good enough to win. 

Yes, there are national styles 
of play; this is undeniable. But 
there is no "European” style. 
Italy and Spain play more like 
T_arin American countries than 
like Bulgaria or Sweden. 

The Germans, often seen as 

the epitome of a hard-tackling, 
ruggra, defensive style, have the 
tournament’s leading active 
goal-scorer in Jurgen Klins- 
mann. % contrast, it is the Bra- 
zilians who lost a key starter 
because of a vicious foul when 
Leonardo was suspended fra 
four games for the elbow that 
sent the American Tab Ramos 
to the hospital with a concus- 

At this level, too, the best 
players in the world are on 
stage- What made them the 
best? Partly talent, partly what 
they learned growing up with a 
bad at their feet. And partly 
what they have learned as pro- 

The highest level of dub 
competition in the world is in 

the top European leagues — be- 
cause they pay the highest sala- 
ries, and therefore attract tee 
best players. 

Among tee eight quarterfi- 
nalists are three countries — 
Italy. Spain and Germany — 
whose domestic leagues are, if 
not tee three best in the world, 
then among tee top five. For 
this Worid Cup, tee Italian and 
Spanish rostors contain no 
players whose club teams are 
outside their own countries; of 
the German squad, four play in 
Italy and one in France, but the 
rest play in tee German league. 

Brazil has a domestic league, 
a good one. but Romirio, Be- 
belo and Leonardo play in 
Spain, while three other regu- 
lars play in Germany, three in 
France and the goalkeeper, Taf- 
farel, in Italy. 

Are they better players be- 
cause they compete regularly in 
European leagues? Surely their 
skills would be the same no mat- 
ter where they played profes- 
sionally, but it may be that their 
physical and mental durability 
have been enhanced by compet- 
ing at that level, against the sort 

me^^Worli? Cu^giri^ 

The other four quarterfinal- 
ists have similar numbers of 
regular players whose club 
teams are in Spain, Italy, Ger- 
many, France, Portugal or Eng- 
land: Bulgaria has six, Romania 
seven, Sweden seven and the 
Netherlands six, although tee 
Dutch have a top domestic 
league, too. 

Following this logic to its 
conclusion, of course, would 
mean that Italy or Spain will 
win tee Worid Cup. Tnat is no 
safe bet. Once again soccer, like 
other art forms, refuses to be 
pigeonholed by logic.

1 N tear deep health-care im- 

The United States faces a 
grave health-care crisis, though 
maybe not. 

There are five, or maybe nine 
or 10, different bills in Congress 
for dealing or not dealing with 
the crisis or noncrisis, depending 
on whether it is a crisis or not. 

One of these is the Dole plan, 
and it is much too confusing to 
go into here, as are the outer 
four, eight or nine plans, as the 
case may be, none of which will 
be enacted anyhow, permitting 
us to move ahead to the real 
questions. These are: 

• Why do you have to go 
bankrupt before you can die? 

• Is n true that Newt Ging- 
rich is wearing President Clin- 
ton’s old hair? 

• Whither coronary throm- 

• Is Ira Magaziner the bril- 
liant criminal-defense lawyer 
known as "the great white 
shark” who was seen being in- 
terviewed on television the oth- 
er night about O. J. Simpson’s 
health-insurance policy? 

Fortunately for people heavi- 
ly invested in insurance compa- 
nies, the insurance industry will 
continue to thrive, no matter 
whether a bfll of any sort is 
passed or not 

Everybody who counts, from 
Clintons to Evers to Breaux, 
fears American medicine will 
collapse if deprived of the in- 
surance industry’s genius for 
converting everything from co- 
lic to Huntington's chorea into 
easily collectable profit. 

Most of the trills bring pro- 
posed frown on the insurance 
industry’s past practice of can- 
celing their coverage of people 
who become ilL Senator Phil 
Gramm of Texas would deal 
with any such insurance compa- 
ny by sending a note home to its 


Of utmost importance is uni- 
versal coverage, because Presi- 
dent Clinton has threatened to 
veto any bill that does not pro- 
vide universal coverage. 

But what does universal 
mean? Some say covering 90 
percent of the population 
would be universal, and some 
say 95 percent In other words, 
the universal coverage bring 
discussed is not univezsal, nor 
should we expect it to be. 

Some say covering 90 percent 
of the population one of these 
days in some future century 
would fill the bill. Others say 

giving everybody the right to 
buy insurance from a private 
company would satisfy the uni- 
versality requirement. 

Since this is exactly where we 
seem to be at present, universal- 
ity-wise, pessimists worry that 
Congress lacks the necessary 
zeal for universal coverage, 
which might compel Clinton to 
use his veto or face the classic 
question asked many years ago 
by a Minnesota congressman 
named Blatnik. The Blatnik 

“Why you Demos talk so 
much, do so nothing?” 

By Cynthia Rose 

L ONDON — Blame Britain’s cult 
of personality on the Beatles. By 
toppling class barriers, London's 
Swinging Sixties altered the country's 
notion of celebrity — linking it forev- 
er to the template of pop stardom. 

Today, Britain still supplies more 
than just models, modern dancers and 
entrepreneurs. It produces Naomi 
Campbell, Michael Clark, Malcolm 
McLaren — figures who publicize 
their talents as if they were rock stars. 

Neville Brody, 36, is a celebrity in 
this tradition. But he was certainly 
Britain’s fust pop-star typographer. 
Brody is known around the world, 
with offices in Germany (at Meta De- 
sign) and in Japan (at DigitaJogue). 

In London, his home base is a strik- 
ing, glass-walled tower. To find the 
busy designer here, one must ring, 
enter and wait — then run the gaunt- 
let of his secretary and minions. The 
boss, when be finally appears, is dad 
in black with small gold glasses. His 

manner may seem abstract, but it 
masks a well of concentration. 

1990, he opened Fontworks, an elec- 
tronic boutique that merchandises do* 
signer typefaces. Out of Fontworks 
ramM Fuse, a package-on-disk of spe- 
cialist foots, with five artists^osters 
included in every issue. 

Just recently, Brody finished a per- 
sonal project "The Graphic Lan- 
guage of Neville Brody 2," ms second 
boot This collection win be pub- 
lished as a bound vohnnc,buf*Nevifle 

Brody 2” was originated digitally, and 
it win also be sold on a CD-ROM. 

This is the latest format to engage 

BrodyS imagination. 

“All the ament CD-ROMs,” be 
says, “are only starring prints created 
by technicians. There’s no real content 
in let alone design. Interactive 
products call for a whole new lan- 

Such a call is just the thing to get the 
Brody juices flowing. As he hunches 
over a very duttered desk (paper still 
remains a problem in this Mac-cen- 
tered environment), Brody's futuristic 
fervor seems almost contagions. We 
discuss his woik for the Austrian Na- 
tional Broadcasting Service; stamps 
he designed for the Dutch postalser- 
vke, even the athletic shoes he publi- 
cized throughout Japan. All Brody’s 
evaluations vibrate with optimism. He 
sees high technology as a m ea ns of 
global bonding. 

Shocking though it is, politics 
also seems to figure in the 
health-care debate. This is be- 
cause elections will be held not 
only this fall, but also in the fall 
of 1996. 

The curse of elections is that 
they require politicians to at- 
tack each other. This is because 
the theatrical demands of the 
10-second TV commercial for 
an MHiimm marinated in gun- 
play and car crashes not only 
mast on violence, but also rule 
out sensible discourse. 

So, our custom of incessantly 
holding elections requires a 
constant supply of government 
failures for which politicians 
can blame each other in cam- 
paign commercials. 

The health-care issue offers 
so many fascinating ways for 
politicians of all faiths to bash 
and nail each other in TV com- 
mercials that we will probably 
have to put up with the racket 
until Something as gnfartttinmg 
as the old Co mmunis t menace 
comes along to open refreshing 
avenues for political assault. 

Brody made famous a job that, un- 
der normal circumstances, would re- 
main obscure. He has a flair for self- 
promotion and an almost infallible 
sense of which vehicles suit his pur- 
pose. “If you have an idea,” Be Hkes to 
say, " you make it happen.” 

After leaving the London College of 
Printing in 1979. only a year elapsed 
before he started his own company. 
Neville Brody Studios began life m 
one rented room.

Jacques Walter, the owner 
since 1955 of Vincent ran 
Gogtfs “Garden at Anvers,” is 
to get 145 wilfion francs ($26.5 
million) to compensate for a 
ban on the export of the paint- 
ing, but a French appeals cotut 
gave him -a lot less than he 
wanted, fit 1982 the govern- 
ment banned the exportand in 
1989 declared the vndc part of 
France's heritage- Walter val- 
ued the painting in 1989 at 200 
rnfTKon francs, and 'sued for 250 
million in 1990. Last March a 
lower court awarded him this 
sum plus interest, 422 mHfion 
francs in alL The appeal court 
agreed that Walter had suffered 
“direct and certain prejudice” 
but reduced the compensation. 

Using clients such as The Face, then 
a struggling lifestyle magazine, and 
record companies with names like Fe- 
tish find Crammed, Brody swiftly built 
hims elf a hipster’s reputation. He de- 
signed for the music industry but also 
for fashion e mp ori u ms; he did covers 
for rode biographies and also re-

and CSty Limits — he was still draw-

A/tear his exhibition, work poured 
into Brody’s studio. He moved several 
times before settling Iris staff into tins 
current premises. Yet now he is often 
absent, working in Paris, Miami or 
Tokyo. In every city, Brody is photo- 
graphed, interviewed, videotaped: 
part of what he likes to call “the dia- 
logue of design.” He wants, he says, to 
really widen the options of his profes- 
sion. “Graphics, type — they’re al- 
ways an invisible means of manipula-

process is continuous — it will never 
stop.” This is a signal, be says, of 
imminent revolution- “And it’s going

Win that explosion project Brody's 
fame farther? One design critic who 
says it may is Lewis Blackwell, the
