No Support in Sight 
For Dollar as G-7 

Opens Naples Talks 

By Alan Friedman 

laiemaaonai Herald Tribune 

NAPLES — As leaders of the world’s 
seven richest industrial democracies as- 
sembled here Friday for their annual sum- 
nut, President Bill Clinton and other U.S. 
officials appeared to rule out any immedi- 
ate and concerted action by the seven to 
prop up the ailing dollar. 

Moments after Mr. Clinton spoke, the 
dollar tumbled to a 20-month low against 
the Deutsche mark and fell against the yen 
as well (Page 10) 

Mr. Clinton, just hours after his first 
meeting with the newly installed prime 
minister of Japan, Tomiichi Murayama, 
said, “We should be very concerned about 
the value of our dollar, and we should tell 
the world that we do not wish to have a low 

But he stressed that the U.S. currency 
had dropped to “an historic low against 

the yen only'* and predicted that the value

West Gropes for a Post- Cold War Grand Design

NAPLES — President Bill Clinton’s trip to Eastern 
and Central Europe and the conference of seven major 
industrial democracies that began here Friday both 
show European leaders how far tbey'stiUhavetogo, five 
years after the Cold War ended, to solve the security and 
economic problems that fo&owed it 
From the~E!ixropean point of view, Mr. Clinton’s role 
is crucial. Without dear American leadership and com- 
mitment, the West can neither redefine relations with 

Mr. Yeltsin is not participating in the economic talks, 
which the Europeans would like to center on jobs and 
the lack of them in Western Europe, where an average of 

.11 percent of the work force is unemployed. 
The pro

West Europeans may have to sacrifice as their neighbors 
to the east begin to compete with them economically. 

The U.S. economy has generated millions of jobs over 
the past two years, and Washington is encouraging its 
European and Japanese allies to pursue high-growth 
economic policies in the year ahead. But uncertainty 
about trade imbalances and concern about the Clinton 
administration's trade policy toward Japan have weak-

Aid Agencies in Rwanda Face ‘Logistical Nightmare’ 

By Raymond Bonner 

New York Times Service 

CY ANIKA, Rwanda — Two weeks ago, 
about 40,000 referees had jammed them- 
selves: into this hilltop village. Now there 
axe at least 60,000, and peasant families 
continue to stream in, arriving after days 
of walking, in rags, dirty, exhausted, suf- 
fering from malana and dysentery. 

The International Committee of the Red 
Cross estimates that at least 1.8 million 
Rwandans have been forced to flee their 
villages and are living in makeshift camps 
like this one. 

“There is no other situation like this in 
the world today, in terms of scale,” said 
Patrick Fuller, a Red Cross spoke sm a n . 

Thomas Gartner, the Red Cross relief 
coordinator for Rwanda, described the sit- 
uation as “alarming” but said there was 
“still a diance to save these people if we get

displaced people will be a “logistical night-

tion of the country controlled by the gov- 

Though other charities are returning to 
this side of the front line, for the last three 
months the Red Cross has been the prrnd- 

g tl international relief organization in the 
urn areas. In the rebel-controlled areas, 
at least 10 international agencies are pro- 
viding relief, according to a May 28 report 

by the Rwanda Patriotic Front, the Tutsi- 
dominated rebel group. 

Many of the foreigners who were work- 
ing in government areas left in April after 
Rwanda’s president, Juv&nal Habyari- 
mana, died in a suspicious plane crash, 
unleashing a wave of killing, mostly of 
Tutsi and moderate Hutu who were op- 
posed to the government. 

The Red Cross has been operating on 
both sides of the line since die outbreak of 
the civil war in October 1990. “It is no 
safer on the RPF side than here.” Mr. 
Gartner said. 

Many of the relief agencies that fled 
Rwanda now operate out of Bujumbura, 
the capital of neighboring Burundi. The 
agencies hold weekly meetings to discuss 
the crisis in Rwanda, but so far they have 
delivered littie but promises, said Stephen 
Jackson, who works here for Trocaire. an 
Irish relief agency. 

Trocaire has been providing logistical 
support for three Catholic nuns from the 

Medical Missionaries of Mary, of Dublin, 
who have been struggling to save lives at 
the camp in Cyanika since they arrived 
June 23. 

Seven or eight people are dying in Cyan- 
ika every day, said Dr. Genevieve van 
Waesberghe, one of the three nuns, as she 
tended to a two-year-old boy who was in 
critical condition; he had been struck by a 
tree being felled by another refugee for his 
shelter. Dr. van Waesberghe said the situa- 
tion was more disastrous in nearby camps 
where there is no foreign assistance. 

Most of the aid delivered to more than 
350,000 refugees in the Cyanika area has 
been provided by Caritas, the relief agency 
of the Catholic Church. But to help the 
refugees, Caritas has bad to draw on food 
supplies intended for famine victims. 

The World Food Program is already 
stretched, providing for the needs of more 
than 250,000 refugees in Sudan, Somalia 
and Ethiopia.

of the dollar would rebound once Japan’s 
economic recovery expands and U.S.- Jap- 
anese trade talks make progress on open- 
ing Japan’s markets. 

Mr. Murayama conceded: “I don’t think 
there will be stability immediately” in the 
volatile yen-dollar relationship. 

Mr. Clinton also noted that coordinated 
central bank interventions in foreign ex- 
change markets sometimes “work for a 
little bit and sometimes they can make a 
real difference.” But he said that over the 
long run the best thing to do to stabilize 
the dollar was “to send a signal to the 
markets that we are workn.^ on the eco- 
nomic fundamentals.” 

Lloyd Beutsen, the U.S. Treasury secre- 
tary, said after meeting his Japanese coun- 
terpart that “we have concern about vola- 
tility in our currencies, but the underlying 
fundamentals are excellent.” 

A senior Clinton administration official 
who asked not to be named said, *yWe do 
not see a currency agreement coming out 
of this summit.” 

Another U.S. official noted that while a 
coordinated intervention by the Group of 
Seven industrialized countries was “not in 
the works,” there might well be an expres- 
sion of concern about the dollar's weak- 
ness by G-7 leaders.

Clinton Says 
Junta Actions 
To Determine 
Haiti’s Fate 

By Ruth Marcus 

Washington Post Service 

NAPLES — President Bill Clinton 
on Friday defended his decision to 
refuse political asylum in the United 
States to Haitian boat refugees, and 
said he was disappointed in Panama’s 
“retraction” of its offer to provide 
shelter to fleeing Haitians there. 

Speaking at a news conference on 
the first day of the Group of Seven 
summit meeting here, he repeatedly 
refused to rule out military action to 
oust die Haitian leadership and said it 
was their abusive behavior — not U.S. 
actions — that had created the recent 
surge of refugees. 

“The conduct of the military lead- 
ers in Haiti will have more than any- 
thing else to do with what options are 
considered when,” he said. ^And that 
conduct has not been good.” It was 
one of his most explicit statements yet 
about the prospect of military inter- 
vention by the United States. 

A senior U.S. official said later that 
Mr. Clinton's comments should be 
taken as a “strong statement of the 

general point” that military action is 
among the o| 

options but not as a sign 
such a move IS immin ent. 

The official riled “signs of ferment” 
in the Haitian military forces as one of 
what he described as “increasing 
signs’’ that tightened economic sanc- 
tions are working. But he acknowl- 
edged that “the refugee flow makes 
the problem a lot more difficult” 
More than 17,000 refugees have 
been picked up by the US. Coast 
Guard since the United Slates an- 
nounced that it was reversing its previ- 
ous position and would begin process- 
ing refugees aboard ships. 

The heavy flow of refugees led the 
administration earlier llus week to 

shift position yet again, announcm;

“there are many points on whicn the two 
sides differ very much.”

Plan to Split Bosnia 
Challenges Serbs 

Leaders Studying a Proposal 
Short of Territorial Demands 

By Roger Cohen 

Sew York Times Serna 

ZAGREB, Croatia — The 
latest map advanced by interna- 
tional diplomats for a settle- 
ment of the Bosnian war offers 
the Muslim-led Bosnian gov- 
ernment a more extensive and 
viable territory than any previ- 
ous proposal, but appears to 
pose critical problems for the 
Bosnian Serbs. 

Throughout the 27-month 
Bosnian war, the Bosnian Serbs 
have made two basic demands; 
that their territory in Bosnia be 
contiguous rather than frag- 
mented, and that their claim to 
separate statehood or eventual 
integration with Serbia be ac- 

These two demands reflect 
the deeply held Serbian view 
that the international recogni- 
tion of Bosnia in April 1992 was 
a travesty that faded to take 
account of the fact that the 
Serbs — almost one-third of the 
prewar Bosnian population — 

made their objections to 

secession from Yugoslavia 
abundantly clear. 

The result was that a large 
Serbian minority was left facing 
, fairly hostile Muslim-led gov- 

ernment in a country whose ex- 
istence the Serbs had never ap- 

In the new map, prepared by 
the United States, Russia, 
France, Britain and Germany, 
the Serbs will find little satisfac- 
tion. The corridor connectii 
their territory in eastern 
western Bosnia tapers to a nar- 
row point in the northern town 
of Brcko, leaving the Serbian 
land acutely vulnerable to the 
fragmentation they have re- 
peatedly refected. 

Moreover, Secretary of State 

government, the map offers 

Warren M. Christopher said 
this week 

categorically this week that the 
map was intended “to preserve 
the state of Bosnia as a single 
state within its internationally 
recognized borders.” 

Thus, while the Clinton ad- 
ministration has reluctantly 
agreed to give the Sobs several 
towns in which they killed or 
evicted the Muslim population, 
it has — after some wavering — 
decided not to budge on the 
question of Bosnia’s remaining 
a single state. 

Bosnian Serbs' pretensions 
toward independence or union 
with Serbia will not be tolerat- 
ed, the United States feels. 

The Bosnian Serbs' leader, 
Radovan Karadzic, made his 
objections to this clear on 
Thursday, saying that “consti- 
tutional principles may deter- 
mine whether we are going to 
accept the plan or not/ 5 

In other words, officials dose 
to Mr. Karadzic said, the Bosni- 

many advantages, not least the 
handover of all or most of sev- 
eral important Serbian-held 
towns, including Jajce, Dobqj, 
Sanald Most, Brcko, and Vise- 

It provides access to the sea 
in the south and to the Sava 
River in the north. The eastern 
enclaves are incorporated into 
the main territory, albeit by its 
own tenuous corridor, and only 
the Bihar area in the west and 
the area north of the Serbs* 
northern corridor are left frag- 

On the other Hand, Muslim 
refugees who have fought for 
more than two years to return 
to towns like Prijedor, Banja 
Luka, Zvornik, and Vlascnica 
would have to be told by the 
government that they are not 
going home. 

“The plan is less favorable to 
the Serbs than it is to us,” the 
Bosnian president. Alga Izetbe- 
govic, said Thursday. “Despite 
everything, my opinion is that 
we should accept this plan, that 
we should not refuse it, because 
by refusing it we would do a 
favor to Karadzic and Milose- 

Both sides have to reply to 
the United States, Russia and 
the Europeans by July 19. 

UN Seeks to Extend Truce 
That Helped Calm Bosnia

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herze-

cials tried Friday to persuade 
the warring parties in Bosnia to 
agree to an extension of a 
monthlong truce that has 
brought relative calm to most of 
the country despite major viola- 
tions in a few areas. 

“We’ve seen a general de- 
crease in the level of hostilities 
and the area of hostilities has 
been generally confined,” said a 
UN spokesperson, Claire

that expires Sunday.

tended,” she added. “We’re 
hoping we can get guarantees 
from both rides.”

It was the fourth time in three 
days that Mr. Li had either can- 
celed or walked out of events 
where he encountered protests. 

He left a dinner in Bolin late 
Wednesday, then canceled a 
stroll through the Brandenburg 
Gate and cut short a visit to 
Weimar on Thursday. 

Mr. Li is to leave Germany 
cm Saturday afternoon for Ro- 
mania, ending a trip here that 
was successful in dru mming up 
business but was a public rela- 
tions nightmare. 

Unlike the big rallies that led 
him to cancel parts of his itiner- 
ary in Berlin and Weimar, only 
five or six demonstrators 
showed up Friday at a pier on 
the Tegerasee Lake where he 
was to board his boat. 

German protesters had 
planned to place a two-meter 
(six-foot) copy of the Statue of 
Liberty on the dock at the lake. 

A similar reproduction was a 
focal point in 1969 of the pro- 
democracy demonstration in 
Beijing that Mr. Li and other 
Chinese leaders ordered 
crushed with tanks and troops. 

“The official program will no 
longer be followed,” a Bavarian 
government spokesman said, 
quoting the Chinese delega- 
tion's chief of protocol 

The five-day program began 
with a cordial welcome from 
political and business leaders 
eager to tap China’s huge 
emerging market Mr. Li’s large 
trade delegation signed about 
53.5 billion worth of contracts 

and declarations of intent with 
German firms. 

The Social Democratic lead- 
er, Rudolf Schaiping, who met 
Mr. Li in Bonn earner in the 
week, said be was astounded the 
Chinese prime minister had 
avoided demonstrations. 

“Somebody who moves 
around in a Western democracy 
must be able to cope with the 
conditions of a democracy,” be 
told the Hamburg Morgenpost 
Bonn and Beijing fnmsteri 
earlier that Mr. 0’s trade tour 

of Germany had been a success 
despite the Chinese leader’s 
conflict with protesters. 

“We had already classed tins 
visit as successful and we see no 
reason to change that,” said 
Chancellor Helmut Kohl’s 
spok esman, Dieter Vogel 

“Of course, the success of the 
visit wiQ only be proven when 
we see what is produced by the 
contracts and the business . 

He played down Mr. Li’s 

abruptwimdrawals, saying pro- 

test demonstrations were nor-. 

mar) in ren »i fri«e like G ermany : ' . 

Chinese officials -also* 
brushed off the encounters as 

“Premier Li Peng is accorded 
a hospitable and friendly recep- 
tion during his visit in Germa- 
ny,” a Chinese Foreign Minis- 
try spokeswoman said; 

“His visit is fruitful and is a 
complete success, and will May. 
an important role in poshing 
forward Sino-German rela- 
dons.” (AP, Reuters, AFP)

Russia Offers Light- Water Reactor 

The Associated Press 

SEOUL — Russia is ready to provide 
North Korea with a light- water nuclear reac- 
tor to replace its outdated graphi to-moderat- 
ed one, the Russian ambassador to Seoul said 

Proposals to provide a new reactor are 
among efforts to settle tensions over the Corfr- 
munist North’s nuclear program. A light- 
water reactor would be safer and produce less 
plutonium, which could be used : to make 
atomic bombs. * O; * 

South Korea, the United States .and Japan 
are discusring plans to provide the North with 
a Russian-made reactor, South Korea’s sci- 
ence and technology minister said this week. 

The Russian ambassador, Georgi F. Kun- 
adze, said Friday that “Russia has the best 
light-water technology and equipment in the 
world, and we will actively cooperate when 
North Korea asks for our assistance.” 

Mr. Kimadze made the offer at a meeting 
of business leaders and diplomats. But he 
added that the North would first have to 
comply fully with international efforts to stop 
the spread of- nuclear weapons under, toe 
Nuclear NonprolifcratKHi Treaty. 

The NorthZasked for a light-water reactor, 
among its conditions for fleering Its nuclear 
p ro gram . The United Stales accepted the re- 
actor demand in principle. The two rides were 
to discuss the issue during talks in Geneva 
that started Friday. 

Beijing Cites Pact With Pyongyang, 

The Associated Pros 

BEIJING — China’s ambassador to North 

Korea stressed the importance of the treaty 


under which the Chinese must crane to N< 
Korea’s aid if it is attacked, an official report 
said Friday. 

The ambassador, Qiao Zonghui, told an 
official gathering in Pyongyang that coopera- 
tion under the 1961 Chinese-North Korean 
treaty of friendship .and m utua l assistance 
“has a far-reaching effect on the maintenance 
of peace in Asia.” 

Mr. Qiao’s remarks, quoted by the official 
Chinese press agency, Xinhua, represent an- 
other signal from Beijing that it could take 
North Korea’s side if the international dis- 
pute oyer the nuclear program flares up. 

(■Under the treaty, North Korea and China 
are committed to offering one another imme- 
diate military and other, assistance in the 
event of an attack. The pact docs not apply if 
either country is die aggressor in a war. 

Xinhua paraphrased Mr. Qiao as saying 
that China would “spare no effort to further 
strengthen” its friendship with North Korea. 

Other Chinese leaders have stressed the 
long-standing ties between China and North 

. On Friday, Vice President Rang Yiren of 
Chirm told visiting North Korean economic 
officials that “stronger Chinese-Korean tics

Rwanda Rebels Agree to a No-Fight Zone 

CompBtdby Ota Staff From Dispatches 

KIGALI Rwanda — Tutsi-led rebels 
agreed in principle Friday to recognize a 
no-fight zone that would restrict their abil- 
ity to attack the remnants of the govern- 
ment army. 

The agreement was the clearest signal 
yet that Rwanda’s ethnic war may be near- 
ing an end, a United Nations special envoy 
said Friday. 

UN officials need a cease-fire to dear 
the way for relief aid to reach an estimated 
1.8 million Rwandans fleeing rebel ad- 
vances. With 900,000 refugees pouring into 
a safe area in southwest Rwanda guarded 
by French troops, France urgently ap- 
pealed for help in caring for the displaced. 

The protection zone would cover almost 
the entire western swath of the country still 
under government control, the UN envoy, 
Shahiyar Khan, said. 

He said the protection zone had been 
approved by the-interim government and 
by French troops. 

Unresolved issues still block a cease-fire, 
but Mr. Khan said he believed the govern- 
ment and rebels were dose to agreement 
on a cessation of hostilities. 

One condition for a truce was that the 
Hutu mfHtiam en blamed for the slaughters 
and the government leaders who inched 
the massacres be captured and punished, 
Mr. Khan said. 

Mr. Khan said the Security Council 
would send a team of judicial experts to 
Rwanda to try to bring the Jailers to jus- 
tice. The rebel Rwandan Patriotic Front 
has not fully agreed to the UN plan, but 
was receptive to it, Mr. Khan said. . .

Sev York Times Service - 

WASHINGTON — The cost of 
health problems in the 
United States was at least $50 billion in 
1993, twice as much as estimated for 
previous years, according to a new fed- 
eral survey. . ... 

The Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention, an Atlanta-based agency of 
the Department of Health and Human 
Services, released the data, saying the 
estimate was based on a survey of 35,000 
people, the most extensive to date; 

it also is the only smvey that has 
counted only actual medical bills, mak- 
ing it the most accurate estimate ever 
dozKvaaid Dr. Thomas Novotny, a lead- 
er of the study. 

The study made these findings: 

• Smoking accounts for at least 7 per- 
cent of all health care costs in the United 

• •The federal government and state 
governments pay for more than 43 per- 
cent of ail smoking-attributed medical 
expenditures and more than 60 percent 
for those over the age of 65. 

• Most of the costs from smoking are 
for hospitalization, 54 percent; doctore’ 
bills, 31 percent, and nursing home ex- 
penses, 10 percent. 

The study was conducted by the dis- 
ease control agency and researchers 
from the University of California at 
Berkeley and the University of Califor- 
nia at San Francisco, using information 

gathered by the federal government's 
National Medi< 

(edical Expenditures Survey 
from interviews with 35,000 people in 
1987 and 1988. The figures were then 
adjusted for inflation to reflect the value 
of the dollar in 1993. 

In the survey, each person was inter- 
viewed four times in a one-year period, 
and described their health problems and 
expenditures. The expenditures were 
then checked against medical records. 

To estimate bow much of the expendi- 
tures could be attributed directly to 
smoking, the researchers put respon- 
dents into four categories: those who 
never smoked, those who smoked for 
less then 15 years, those who smoked for 
more than 15 years, and those currently 

Then they added up the chief medical 
expenses of those with the most smoke 
exposure who bad one of five diseases; 
heart disease, emphysema, lung cancer, 
arteriosclerosis and stroke. 

The share of their medical expenses 
attributed to smoking was determined 
by first subtracting for other risk fac- 
tors. For example, if a person was a 
smoker and also obese, the percentage 
of the spending attributed to smoking 
was less than it would be if the smoker 
was not obese. 

Dr. Novotny said the figures that re- 
sulted were “very minimum estimates” 
and were likely to be lower than the 
actual costs. 

He said that some medical problems 
attributed to smoking were not counted, 
like bums from fires caused by ciga- 
rettes and low birth weight or other 
infant health problems caused by a preg- 
nant woman's smoking , 

Dr. Novotny said the total economic 
burden of smoking is at least twice their 
$50 billion estimate. Other costs that 
should be included to reach a total esti- 
mate, he said, would be $6 billion more 
in estimated costs associated with sick 
days, and S40 billion in costs associated 
with premature death because of smok- 

The agency’s figures are likely to be 
important to states that have passed 
laws permitting them to sue tobacco 
companies to recover money the states 
have spent for health costs linked to 

Dr. Novotny said that slare-by-siate 
estimates of the costs of smoking would 
be available within a few weeks.

Bird watchers had never seen a pair of green herons 
nesting in the park in the 100 years they have kept 
records, although the birds have sometimes been seen 
: through on a migratory trail in the spring and 

*This is a rare and wonderful thing," said Elizabeth 
Barlow Rogers, the administrator erf Central Park. 
‘There are mysteries in the park and the mysteries are 
really wonderful” 

It is not a place one would expect to find herons 
nesting, ornithologists say. Although the green heron 
is a relatively common wading bird that ranges 
throughout North America and has been found in 

secluded spots near the city, it prefers quiet woodlands 
near ponds, inlets, swamps or wetlands, far from 
human intruders and noise. 

Yet there they are, two feathery urban pioneers who 
have forsaken the sheltered backwaters where their shy 
brethren usually roost. Paper cups and trash and used 
condoms litter the lake snore near the nest Jets roar 
overhead and the rumble of distant traffic never ceas- 

Closer by. a constant stream erf pedestrians, joggers 
and bikers passes on a roadway just a few yards from 
the spot where the heron pair decided to settle down 
and raise a family. 

In the late 1970s, a longshoreman spotted a lonely 
pair of herons nesting on an island in the Arthur Kill, 
Lbe narrow body of water that separates Staten Island 
from New Jersey. Since then, wading birds have made 
a steady comeback on the city’s islands and coastal 
waterways as water pollution has eased, bird watchers 

Last year, the New York City Audubon Society 
counted 2,065 nesting pairs of herons and egrets on 
five islands in the Arthur Kill and the East River, up 
from 1,400 pairs in 1988. But only four of the pairs 
counted last year were green herons, and never nave 
any herons been known to breed in the heart of the 

“If you set some land aside and manage it properly, 
there is a spectacular array of wildlife that can survive 
right here in the city, and these green herons are 
symbolic of that,” said David Burg, president of the 
local Audubon Society. 

The herons are lanky 14-inch-long (36-centimeter- 
long) birds with yellow feet, chestnut necks, white 
throats and gun-metai gray bodies, and — when 
alarmed — a sha gg y crest They have a teal patch on 
their backs that gives them their name . They feed on 
minn ows and other fish. 

The nest is full of five mouths to feed, a writhing 
mass of gawky chicks, silently gaping for food and 
exercising their immature and semipl umed wings in 
preparation for flight 

Mr. Kennedy first spotted the nest on May 28, and 
the first young heron hatched soon after. By next 
week, the young should be leaving the nest, bird 
watchers said. 

No humans have tampped with the nest, but this 
being New York City, it’s a tough neighborhood 

A few weeks ago. a black crowned night heron tried 
to eat the young green herons, said Sarah Elliot, a 
longtime chronicler of aviary antics in the park. The 
parents beat bade the interloper in a daylong ski rmish 
that left bird watchers jittery.

America and Europe 

B£0 Clinton is on a major mission in 
Europe whose purpose is nothing less 
than to advance the structure of the fu- 
ture Europe. In the first flurry of excite- 
ment after the Beilin Wall came down, it 
was tempting to think that a single cheer- 
fid new world might emerge more or less 
by itself. By now it is clear that the old 
demons have survived and new complex- 
ities have arisen. It falls to the United 
States to deal with Europe as it is. 

Mr. Clinton began in Latvia, a country 
newly free, deeply uneasy about Russian 
power, anxious to gel the Last Russian 
troops off its soQ. There he stepped for- 
ward as a mediator, urging the Russians to 
withdraw but at the same time pressing the 
Latvians to respect the civil rights of the 
Large Russian minority living among them. 

The next stop was Poland, desperate to 
join the two seat Western institutions, 
NATO and the European Union, that 
made the other half of the continent se- 
cure and prosperous during the Cold 
War. Poland’s president. Lech Walesa, 
eloquently urged President Clinton not to 
relegate the former Soviet satellites to “a 
gray area in a security void, a nowhere 
land where anything can happen.” 

From Warsaw Mr. Clinton, flew to Na- 
ples for the annual meeting of the beads of 
the seven big industrial democracies, a 
meeting supposedly on economic policy. 
But the serious discussion this year is likely 
to have much more to do with the political 
framework for Europe. Mr. Clinton's mis- 
sion goes to the reshaping of the great 

multilateral institutions expressing the in- 
terests of both Americans and Europeans. 

The seven democracies are now mov- 
ing to bring Russia more deeply into their 
consultations, and President Boris Yelt- 
sin mil be present. Are the Eastern coun- 
tries served best by extending NATO and 
the European Union to include them? 
One test case, certain to be much dis- 
cussed at Naples, is Ukraine. Its economy 
is in chaos, its government resists essen- 
tia] reforms, and its decrepit nuclear reac- 
tors at Chernobyl are emerging as the 
great symbol of the risks in letting its 
downward slide continue. 

From Naples the president goes to 
Germany, where he will speak at the 
Brandenburg Gale, until four years ago 
the emblem of Europe’s division, now 
the most dramatic emblem of its new 
unity. Regrettably, Mr. Clinton has yet 
to produce a NATO-expansion timeta- 
ble and, no less important, an apprecia- 
tion of the enduring geopolitical reali- 
ties to match the urgency that Central 
Europe feds about its future. 

Just as in the Baltics Mr. Clinton con- 
veyed the message that freedom brings 
hardens as well as rewards, so In Poland 
he received a like message from Mr. Wa- 
lesa. Tbe Polish president reminded him 
that America is “still indispensable” to 
taking Europe beyond the restoration of 
sovereignty and democracy to “a grand 
vision of a unified continent.” This is the 
core requirement of American policy. 


Latvia and Its Russians 

Latvians cheered President Bill Clin- 
ton in Riga on Wednesday when he 
pledged partnership with the Baltic re- 
publics to keep than forever free. But 
there was stony silence when he appealed 
to them not to “deny to others the justice 
and equality you fought so hard for and 
earned for yourselves, for freedom with- 
out tolerance is freedom unfulfilled.” The 
others he referred to are ethnic Russians, 
left behind by a receding empire, who are 
the objects of Latvian intolerance. Lat- 
via, understandably resentful about its 
past, is right to want all Russian troops 
out But it is wrong to avenge the past by 
riismmnmting against Russian residents. 

In a land of just over 2 million people, 
Latvia has 700.000 Russian-speaking resi- 
dents. Some are military retirees who have 
settled there. Others are Latvian-born de- 
scendants of workers sent to Russify the 
country decades ago. Under proposed leg- 
islation, some 300,000 of them will have 

There are reasons for this. Latvia did 
not just suffer loss of independence in SO 
years of Soviet rule. Many of its people 
were exiled to Siberia and elsewhere. It 
struggled to keep its language and culture 
vital under pressure of Russification. 

Even in America, immigrants have 
faced discrimination and bigotry. But 
Americans know tbe dreadful price of eth- 
nic exclusivity; when allowed to flourish, it 
has been a divisive and destructive force in 
their society. They can plead with Latvia 

to rise above its painful recent history and 
of ethnic dif 

to apply for citizenship, but quotas will 
ickle to be naturalized. As 

allow just a trickle 
resident aliens they face discrimination in 
jobs, education and housing. 

be tolerant of ethnic differences. 

Americans distrust leaders who exploit 
hatred of “the other” — those of a differ- 
ent ethnicity — to gain power. Especially 
in Eastern Europe, where no country is 
ethnically homogeneous, efforts to ex- 
dude the other will only give pretexts to 
neighboring natio nalis ts to protect their 
kin across the border — or even lead to 
new Bosnias. Regardless of past wrongs, 
for Latvia to deny its Russians rights is to 
invite trouble while impeding dose part- 
nership with the United States. 


Search, Seizure and O. J. 

The prehmmary hearing in the O. J. 
Simpson case has provided a mini-semi- 
nar on the Fourth Amendment. The con- 
stitutional protection against unreason- 
able search and seizure is one of the most 
important rights enjoyed by Americans, 
and at times one of the most resented. 
Reasonable people who would be ap- 
palled if the police burst into their homes 
and started opening drawers and search- 
ing wastebaskets are often less supportive 
of the amendment when it provides tbe 
same protection to people accused of 
crime. Some followers of the Simpson 

case were undoubtedly impatient with 

days of testimony and hours of debate 
among criminal law experts on tbe ad- 
missibility of evidence taken from the 
home of the accused. It is powerful evi- 
dence, and if Judge Kathleen Kennedy- 
Powefl had not decided as she did on 

Thursday to admit it, the public's confu- 
ent might have escalated. 

way and important evidence was kept out 
because of a defect in the search? That sort 
of thing happens, and occasionally people 
go free who might have been convicted if 
evidence obtained during a tainted search 
had been admitted. That outcome is al- 
ways difficult to accept, but on balance the 
prohibitions in the law serve tbe public 
wdL The inadmissibility of illegally ob- 
tained evidence provides a powerful deter- 
rent to abusive, warrantless searches. No 
other sanction works as well, for it com- 
pletely nullifies the reason for the search. 
Very infrequently, the rule on admissibil- 
ity ruins a prosecutor's case against a per- 
son who is really guilty. But that is a pice 
worth paying to protect the right of all 
citizens to be secure in their homes, free 
from the kind of government intrusions 
that prompted tbe founders to add the 
Fourth Amendment to the constitution. 

sion and resentment might 1 
The judge was right to take her time in 
ruling on the defense motion to suppress 
the evidence, for the events leading to the 
contested search are complicated. In ret- 
rospect, the police probably did have 
time to obtain a warrant, which would 
have averted this controversy. But they 
did not know that at the time, and made a 
reasonable assumption that bloodstains 
on Mr. Simpson’s car and on the pave- 
ment outride his home meant trouble. 
They testified that they feared he might 
also have been wounded or killed, and 
that it was imperative that they go inside 
to find out without waiting for a warrant. 
Exigent circumstances (emergencies) are 
one of tbe exceptions to the general prin- 
ciple that warrantless searches taint the

Her decision is not final, of course, since 
the same pants can be raised later when 
the case goes to trial. But for purposes of 
deciding whether a trial is justified, the 
challenged evidence will be considered.

[One] way in which foreigners can 
help is by using every opportunity gent- 
ly to probe Russia's leaders on what 
they mean when they claim that theirs is 
a “great country" — which they do both 
for internal reasons and when trying to 
muscle their way into Western clubs 
such as tbe Group of Seven. It is a 
dangerous and misleading claim. 

Greatness should be measured not by 
the amount of fear a country inspires in 
its neighbors, but by the vigor of its 
civilization and the humanity and com- 
petence with which it conducts its af- 
fairs. That requires an economy that is 
both efficient and just. 

Without that, Russia will always look 
like an underachiever — and, inciden- 
tally, a country not fit for full member- 
ship of the Group of Seven.

Really, the Only Bosnia Plan on the Table 

P ARIS —The “peace ultimatum” to the 
Bosnian combatants, announced on 
Tuesday in Geneva, has already provoked 
criticisms that it abandons the moral prin- 
ciple that aggression and ethnic cleansing

However, those who criticize President Bill 
Qintoa and other Western leaders for agree- 
ing to this plan are mostly those who also 
refuse to have tbe United States, or anyone 
else, conduct the nriliiary operations neces- 
sary to correct the plan's injustices. In the 
absence of an outside commitment to reverse 
ethnic cleansing, the criticisms are unwar- 
ranted. This plan is the only one on the table. 

Much, is wrong with it It quite possibly 
will prove stillborn. If it survives, the surviv- 
al will be feeble. However, it is the only 
program the major powers have been able to 
agree on, and the only one they have com- 
mitted themselves to enforce with peace- 
and air power.

Americas case, despite the commitments 
given by tbe Ctinton administration. While 
Congress takes a strong line on arnring Bos- 
nians, it takes a different line on putting 
American troops at possible risk. . 

There is already a disagreeable element of 
demagogy in congressional calls for unilat- 
eral U.S. renunciation of the arms embargo 
on Bosnia that ignore the vulnerable situa- 
tion of tbe relief agencies and United Na- 
tions troops deployed there. 

There mil be oo unambiguous “yes” to 
this plan from any ride. The Serbs may- 
reject it outright. The plan requires them to 
give up a third of the 70 percent of Bosnia’s 
territory that they now control 

Even if Serbs, Croats and the Sarajevo 
government all accept the plan, they cannot 
be expected to respect it, except when to do 
so sints the interests of all A Bosnian gov- 
ernment official has said: “Well sign and 
then ignore the agreement. That’s moat ev- 
eryone has done in this war so far.” He is 
perfectly correct, and that is what is likely to 
happen. But that stOl would mean muted 
war in place of all-out war. 

The {dan’s demand that refugees and the 
“ethnically deansed” be allowed to return 

to will certainly not be respect- 
ed. This is one of the flagrant hypocrisies 
embedded in the plan. The Sabs have not 
gone to tbe trouble to drive non-Serbs out of 

X ' ns daimed for Serbia only to meekly 
t thorn bade, at foreign behest But 
what Muslim would want to go home; if the 
Serbs are' in control? The Muslims nonethe- 
less are not going to give up their claim, to 
. cities where they once were the majority. 

. . This plan must be seen as a program for a 
pause m the war, not for ptttce. A pause 
suits the major powers because it will get the 
problem off the television and front pages, 
-and appeasepublic opinion. President Gun- 
ton is not the only head of government 
under public and legislative pressure to 
solve tie war without inconvenience to die 
public or the necessity for politically com- 
promising votes by legislators. ; 

However, it is necessary to ask if all of the 
powers involved in drafting this plan are 
willing to apply the measures threatened in 
the case oT Serbian refection. If the arms 
embargo is lifted and NATO employs air 
power against' Serbian violations of, UN ' 
exclusion zones, flic war will enlarge and the 

Serbian national army could become 
involved. The now familiar scenarios by

Senator Joseph Bidcn has said tins is not a . 
plan that “tins president or this nation will

A Goal for Palestinians: Keep Working Together 

P ARIS — Palestinian state- 
hood has now become more 
likely than a return to the previ- 
ous situation. This has been sym- 
bolized by the arrival of Yasser 
Arafat with hundreds of PLO 
members and staff, and by the 
thousands erf PLO members al- 
ready at work in Jericho and 
Gaza. Tbe self-rule process start- 
ed in Oslo and Cairo will go for- 
ward, whatever its outcome. 

Some Palestinians consider the 
glass half fuIL They see no altemar 
tivc to the “land for peace” formu- 
la on winch Israel agreed to negoti- 
ate. They hope that the self-rule 
effort can yield demonstrable suc- 
cess, given the population’s enthu- 
siastic eagerness and the precedent 
of efficient management of public 
and b usiness affairs by Palestin- 
ians in Gulf countries. 

Others see the glass two-thirds 
empty. They say Palestinians have 
signed over most of their land to 
the Israelis, at least until further 
notice: Palestinians may have won 

a chanty of n miring thgir own 
lives, but only on a fraction of 
there land. And inipn’wwiiefrt^ rn

livin g conditions in Chrra are ex- 
pected to give an aura of accept- 
ability to the arrangement 

Opponents erf the peace process 
are not only in Hamas; they in- 
dude secular and democratic po- 
litical factions. They complain mat 
the opehreaded nature of the new 
peace formula will be conducive to 
manipulati on, if not domination, 
by Israel They bold little hope for 
tangible impro vement in the daily 
lives of Palestinians. Improving 
the lot of people in the camps, job 
creation, the minimal requisites of 
a normal, safe existence — all tins 
lodes remote to them. 

Both sides agree that tbe agree- 
ment is a fait accompli, and that 
Israel is reluctant to take steps 
needed to make a success of the 
self-rule experiment If the test is 
failed, they fear, Israel would 
have few remaining qualms about 
taking draconian measures to an- 
nex part of the West Bank and 
dose off the border with the Gaza 
(once the safety of Israeli 
lets has been ensuredj. 

Neither side sees the agreement 
as a permanent solution. Propo- 
nents see it as a first step, and 
opponents as a severe setback. In 
fact the agreement covers only 
about 60 percent of.- Gaza, and 
less of the Jericho area. 

On the latest of my recent visits 
to the Gaza Strip, it seemed obvi- 
ous that people were less and less 
hopeful that genuine changes 
would occur, beyond a changing 
of the guard. Soon enough, 
Yasser Arafat will find himself 
squeezed b etween implementing 
the agreement as it stands and 
living up to papular expectations. 

Mr. Arafat needs to concen- 
trate on forging a strong relation- 
ship between the Palestinian peo- 
ple and the new authority. He 
needs to cement iris legitimacy in 
new ways, and to remember that, 
a democratic process, guarantee- 
ing free elections is the only guar- 
antee of future stability basal on 
political accountability. 

If the authority fumbles and 
fails, Mr. Arafat will soon find 

that hehaslost an both the Pales- 
tinian and the Israeli fronts. He 
needs to inf ram and inspire, to 
tell the people deady about the 
challenges and responsibilities 
ahead. The good news deserve 
emphasis, but so do the rides. 

« m Palestine, weapons are plen- 
tiful, not only among the police 
but also among the various fac- 
tions, parties and -“armed mili- 
_ tias.” The situation could become 
explosive^ Any confrontation be- 
tween police masting on disarm- 
ing these groups and the factions 
upholding a “right" to se&de- 
fense could lead to a bloodletting 
in the Gaza Strip. 

If people cannot hold their fire 
ad resolve 

and resotve then differences, or. 
agree to disagree, a civil war is a 
real possibility. A Kurdish-styte 
nightmare could be around the 
comer. Palestinians need to en- 
sure that Gaza- Jericho isindeeda 
first step, riot a last one.

Toward Mexican Democracy: Here Gomes Manana 

L ONDON — I once bragged to 
' a friend in Mexico that m the 
United States we would know the 
winner of a presidential election 
within an hour after the 
dosed. That’s nothing, he: 

“Here in Mexico, we kn 
a year before.” 

The Institutional Revolution-

years with a singularly successful 
formula: the government controls 
the party and a powerful presi- 
dent controls the government 
“The perfect dictatorship,” as 
tbe Pouvian novelist Mario Var- 
gas Llosa described it 
The PRI has won every presi- 
dential election. It controls Con- 
gress, the judiciary and most of 
the media. It co-opted labor, 
peasant farmers, bureaucrats and 
the army. It has provided stability 
and order rince 1929. 

And stability and order were 
what an exhausted and chaotic 
state looked for in the aftermath 
of a revolution and the civil wars 
that swept across Mexico bo- 
tween 1910 and 1929. A million

million. The people welcomed tbe 
PRI, initially tittle more than a 
network of generals. 

During tbe 1930s, the PRI dis- 
tributed land, improved working 
conditions and expropriated the 
foreign oil companies. After 
World War n, high protectionist 
walls were built to keep out for- 
eign competition. Tbe state and 
party played the key role in indus- 
trial and agricultural development, 
and ultra-nationalism, patronage, 
protectionism and corruption be- 
came the way of life — and of 

It was not until 19S2 that the 
era erf economic liberalism began 
— ironically, when Mexico de- 
faulted on its foreign loans. Tbe

Too Much of the Zapatistas 7 Good Thing 

T HE Zapatistas have brought to li ght the deep racist sentiments 
existing in Mexico; accelerated the unification, and mobilization of 
nongovernmental forces; forced the government to backtrack and 
rkangp its martial disposition; driven two presidential candidates, Luis 
DonaldoCtriosip and Cuat^tfanocCmdenas, to recognize _the profound 
motives behind the indigenous uprising. Even the rightist candidate, 
Diego Femdndez de CevaQos, has paid lip service to Indian rights. 

Bot what is the meaning of statements like; u By suicide or firing 
squad, the death of the current Mexican political system is absolutely 
necessary, albeit not sufficient, for a transition to democracy in our 
country^*? Who placed tbe Zapatistas in the role of arbiters and 
guarantors in the transition to democracy? 

I share many of tbe Zapatista grievances — the high-level corruption, 
the imperial presidency, the state party, the terrible aban donme nt of 
indigenous communities and the rejection of democracy— and I admire 
Their sense of community. 

But I cannot accep t their obstinate fixation with death, thdr poring as 
national representatives, their belief that an armed conflict is (me of the 
ways toward change: Fortunately, there axe many possibilities left to

of inflation in a quarter century. 
Its budget today has a surplus. 

What never changed was the 
politics. By the end of President 
Miguel de la Madrid's six-year 
reign, he fell the process of mod- 
ernization of the econozny was just 
getting started. He selected as Iris 
successor another technocrat wbo_ 
shared his views, Carlos Salmas de 
Gortari. Both men fallowed the 
Asian model of development — 
free enterprise first, free elections 
later. Wbex it came to democra- 
cy, the PRI paraphrased St. Au- 
gustine: Lord, give me democra- 
cy, but not quite yet. 

WdL yet is now. 

The next president wffl not be

instituted re f a i ms raalrmg elec-

suring the independence of the

inviting international ‘ observers

Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de Le6n,

A New Left 
In Reserve 

For Britain 

By Anthony Lewis 

I ONDON — For a onetime ob- 
/ server of British politics to re- 
examine the scene is an eye-rub-' 
bing experience. Many old truisms 
have been turned upside down. 

The Labor Party used to be the 
ittle Em 

home of Little Englanders op- 
posed to British membership. to 
the European Community and 
generally suspicious of foreigners. 
-Today a powerful group of Con- 
servatives are Eurostep tics mid 
sound the trumpet of xenophobia. 
Labor is committed to Europe. 

' Labor was socialist' in - the ^d 
sense: nationalization, fealty to 
tra de umbos, class conflict. Today 
h extols market economics. “We 
are not a tax-and-spend party,” 
Tony Hair, heir apparent to tile 
party leadership, said in an inter- 
view. "Those days are over” 

Mr. Haro the heavy favorite in a 
leacleisbip contest now going on, is 
apcxfectsyznbcrfof the new-model 
Labor Party. He is young, 41, and 
locks younger. He went to private 
school an<f Oxford and speaks 
with the accent of the upper nad? 
die ri»»«R His wife, Cnene, is a 

lawyer, as be used to be. . 

He made his name as the shad* 

owhome secretary tty moving La- 
bor to a tough position on crime, 
wirik also pledging to be tough on 
tiie social decay that breeds crime. 
When charged with straying from 
Labor's base in the working dass, 
hesaid: “These are the very people 
who care about crime.” 

Educati on ' -timaad y: Mr. Blair 
has lately begun moving Labor to 
what could be called more conser- 
vafive positions on state schools. 
He em phasize s the need for disci- 

pareat involvement. But he has 
-also called for tbe state to provide 
rmrsery schools fra alL 

These positions are reminis- 
cent of what -America’s so-called 
New Democrats are trying to do 
byway of shedding the albatross 
political baggage of the 1960s. 
Bill Omton, too, is for tough 
measures a gainst c rime and re- 
straints on government spending. 

The two most important fea- 
tmes of Conser v ative rule in the 

last 15 years, Mr. Blair said in the 
interview, have been that taxes 
hnve riseoLas a proportion erf na- . 
tional income and so has govern- 
ment spending. “We are a high-tax 
econom y ,” he said, “because we 
are a low-success economy.” . 4 

You can hear him campaigning 
when he says such things. (The 
next election must be bdd by June 
1997.) But what would Labors tax 
policy be? Oa that and similar 
specifics he is dehberatdy silenL 
Tm certainly not going to write 
our tax plans or spending plans 
now,” he said. The lesson of the 
election two years ago is top 
plain. John Smith, toe Labor 
leader whose sudden death in 
May led to the present contest, 
unvested * de t a ile d tax proposal 
in 1992. The Conservatives ran 
against it and narrowly won. 

A striking change in Labor pol- 
icy, as Mr. Blair represents it, is 
hiy behef in a bfll J of rights for ■ 
Britain — rights enforceable by 
judges, as in the United States. 
He would make the European 
Convention on Homan Rights 
part of British domestic law. 

Labor traditionally opposed a 
bill of rights on tbe ground that it 
would give too much power to 
nnetec t ed judges. “That is a risk,” 
Mr. Hair said, “but you have to 
balance the ride. One of the fea- 
tures of a civilized society is tbe 
protection of - minorities against . 
the abuse of power by majorities.” 

If he becomes leader, that fact 
alone wffl do much to kill the old . 
and losing image of the' Labor 
Party as a tired xielic.of toe past 
Instead it will be a party that caD% . 
fra renewal but is only the tmiesf ~ 
bit .left of center:. 

Most British pohtirians are now 
trying to crowd mto the center. 
“Tte parties may not have starkly 
different ideologies to offer,” Joe 
Rogaty, a Financial Times colum- 
nist, wrote the other -day, “but 
Mr. Blair’s has tbe advantage of : 
freshness, something new, differ- 
ent where it counts, and ^afe." 1 

Safe, certainly. The question is 
wither safety, youth and broad 
virio ns will be enough to keep 
him awl his party in ' toe 
polls, as now, through an election.

some- may have had that genu- 
ine peace had arrived with the 
start of Self-rule in the Gaza

tered on Tbonriay by thedrito- .

year-old Kiryat' Arba girl, 
whose father-arid brother were 
wounded, in the attack. The 
same day,, the body of Private 
Arieh Frankenthal, 20, who had 
been repeatedly shot and 
stabbed, was found irimi aban- 
doned house in an Arab village 
just north of Jerusalem. 

No one' darned responsibil- 
ity for the attacks, bat Israeli 
officials assumed that they were 
the work of Islamic militants 
who oppose negotiations with. 
Brad and who had been rela- 
tively quiet, especially dining 
the visit to 'Gaza and Jericho 
this week by Yasser Arafat, the 
PLO leader. 

There was no condemnation 
or other publfc comment on the 
killings by Mr, Arafat or the 
PLO. But Israel’s deputy de- 
fense minister, Mordechai Gur, 
called on the new Palestinian 
police force in Gaza and Jericho 
to cradt down on radicals, 
wanting that if they do not "im- 
pose quiet, we win feel free to 
act according to our needs.” 

Nowhere was Israeli anger 
greater than among the 'slain 

g ir l’s neighbors in Kiryat Arba, 
who already were in the van- 
guard of attempts by the far- 
right to bring down the prime 
minister, a man they have pub- 
licly reviled as a traitor and as a 
tatat partner with Palestinians 
in anri- Jewish terrorism- ' 

"He murdered us before they 
are murdering us,” said Geuia 
Cohen, a former member of 
Parliament on the far right who 
lives in Kiiyat Arba. 

Settlers were repealed to have 
smashed the windows of some 
Arab houses in Hebron, and 
they blocked the road between 
Jerusalem ' and Hebron with 
burning tires. On that road, an 
Israeli dvihan carrying a sniper 
scope mounted on ms automat- 
ic nfle ordered a carload of Pal- 
‘ estmians to poll off to the ride 
for a frisking at gunpoint and 
for an identity check.

occupy several new apartment 
buddings that had been unoc-

Confronted With Order, Naples Asks, Can It Last? 

By Alan Cowell 

New York Tunes Semes 

NAPLES — Neapolitans Hke to say 
their city is divided: The rich live up 
on the hill, the poor live down by the 
docks and the only strand that links 
them is the city’s chaos. Now, though, 
there’s a new and unfamiliar part, the 
G-7 pan — a bubble of order and 
serenity were 5,000 police and miles of 
barricades have created a Naples 
without Neapolitans to insulate the 
summit from the city. 

For months, armies of laborers have 
spruced, preened and primped the so- 
called red zone that stretches from the 
seafront hotels to the 17th century 
Royal Palace, where the summit meet- 
ing of the Group of Seven leading 
industri aliz ed democracies opened 
Friday night. 

Cobbles have been laid and foun- 
tains revived. Buildings have been 
painted, flowers planted, roads 
smoothed, beaches cleaned turf laid, 
all smooth and green and watered, 
restoring forgotten glories. 

And, beholding the splendor from 
across the security barricades that 
kero them out of it, Neapolitans on 
Friday entwined two fairy-tales: Part 
erf than was Dorothy, returning from

“You come back on Monday, 
though, and it’ll all be back to normal

AJdo Masullo, a leftist philosophy 
professor and Parliament member 
said: "No one can have the illusion 
that after this moment of euphoria we 
can continue in this favorable way 
unless firm decisions are made to cre- 
ate a more substantial transformation 
of the city. The problem will be to 
transform this new psychological atti- 
tude into a new reality." 

The remarkable transformation of 
part of Naples into an elegant pedes- 
trian precinct has intersected with an- 
other debate that has propelled the 
city since Italy’s huge corruption scan- 
dal decapitated the city admzmsire- 
don: Has the turning point toward 
better times finally arrived? 

The new civic pride that has come 
with the G-7, said Sergio Zavoli, the 
executive editor of the Naples daily D 
Mattino, “seems to signal the end of a 
long night.” 

"What wiB remain will not just be 
the decorations of a major event," he 
said. “The G-7 in Naples has set in 
motion something from which the city 
will not be able to turn back.” 

For years, Naples has slumped in a 
decay mat Mr. Zavoli called "the oth- 
er Naples, held back in mistrust and 

With three million people packed 
into the city and its environs, a third 
of the workforce is jobless. The health 
service has been wracked by the scan- 
dals of people dying untended in hos- 
pital corridors. No one even knows 
how many children cut class to work 
in bars or the sweatshops of the illicit 

In the tangled alleys of the Spanish 
Quarter, down by the port (and out- 
side the red zone), the mobsters of the 
Camorra organized crime syndicate 
hold sway as they always have oyer 
extortion, loan-sharking, narcotics, 
counterfeiting, illicit lotteries, prosti- 
tution, pornography, gambling and 


And then there is the traffic, known 
for two characteristics: indiscipline 
and snarls. The only bikers to obey the 
law and wear safety helmets are the 
police; red traffic lights, by tradition, 
are more a challenge to proceed than 
an order to halt. 

The corruption scandals that have 
swept Italy since February 1992 
reached so deeply here that the entire 
dty a dminis tration was suspended 
ana replaced by a special commission- 
er from Rome — a viceroy sent to hold 

the line in a city that had declared 
itself bankrupt. 

Since last year, though, something 
different has been bubbling through 
the gloom. 

A new police chief, Umberto Im~ 
prota, began dissolving corrupt local 
authorities. In elections last Decem- 
ber, the dty swung left and voted in 
Mr. Bassoluio who promptly began a 
crusade to introduce a new notion into 
the way Neapolitans relate to their 
city. He threw open the galleries and 
churches for people to see, switched 
on the traffic lights that had fallen 
into disuse and sent the traffic cops 
bade onto the streets.

mer public relations executive at Fiat 
who moved here a few months back,

Protesters Injure 
A Police Official 


NAPLES — A Naples po- 
lice official was injured Friday 
during a dash with students 
demonstrating against the 
Group of Seven meeting. 

The police said that a depu- 
ty police chief had been hit on 
the head by an Iron bar 
thrown from a building site as 
200 officers clashed with dem- 
onstrators outside Eastern 
University, where President 
Francois Mitterrand of 
France was receiving an hon- 
orary degree. Three people 
were arrested. 

The deputy chief was taken 
to a hospital. Officials said his 
injuries were not serious. 

In another incident, 10 ac- 
tivists were detained in the 
city's Vomero district while 
trying to put up posters criti- 
cizing the summit meeting.

And perhaps here lies the secret 
to why the French and “Anglo-

“The French always go from

said Jack Lang, a former culture

that he got 18 out of 20 points.

more sketchy and tentative than 
it was 1 then. 

Five years after World War 
II, most of the political and eco- 
nomic institutions that carried 
the West through the Cold War 
were in place — the alliances 
that bound the United States to 
the defense of Japan and West- 
ern Europe, the Marshall Flan, 
the economic and monetary 
agreements that underpinned 
the expansion of free world 
trade and prosperity. 

But five years after the Berlin 
Wall collapsed, thfcre has been 
no comparable concentrated ef- 
fort to come up with a grand 
design to cope with the social 
unrest erf remaking the Commu- 
nist .economies, the ethnic 
strains of resurgent nationalism 
in Eastern Europe or the in- 
creasingly competitive pres- 
sures of the global economy. 

Instead the leaders of the 
Group of Seven have impro- 
vised and tinkered at gatherings 
like this one, which promises to 
be as inconclusive as those be- 
fore it. 

Last year in Tokyo, they of- 
fered a $46 trillion package of 
aid and debt rescheduling help 
to stabilize Russia's inflation- 
ridden economy and encourage 
it to keep privatizing state en- 
terprises, which still account for 
60 percent erf its gross national 
product- About $30 billion has 
been committed so far, accord- 
ing to economic experts. 

In January in Brussels, Mr- 
Clinton and the NATO allies 
agreed to offer a Partnership for 
Peace between the alliance and 
any formerly Communist coun- 
try that wanted to cooperate, a 

step that disappointed Poland, 
Hungary, the Czech Republic 
and others who worry about 
Russia and want the security 
guarantees that come with full 

Mr. Yeltsin’s government, 
which opposes NATO expan- 
sion, took until last month to 
-agree to participate, and the 
smaller countries fear the Rus- 
sians want to use the partner- 
ship only to keep than from 
getting in. 

“Bringing new members into 
NATO,” Mr. Clinton said in 
Warsaw on Thursday, “is no 
longer a question of whether, 
but when and how ” But for 
Poles and other East European 
democracies, when they can 
join the Weston dub, as mem- 
bers of NATO or the European 
Union, is a key question that 
remains unanswered. 

Chancellor Helmut Kohl of 
Germany also wants early 
membership in both for Poland 
and other East European coun- 
tries as soon as they qualify, 
because Germany cannot long 
tolerate a security vacuum on 
its eastern border. 

U.S. diplomats say that the 
German concerns will be on 
Mr. Clinton’s mind when he 
visits Bonn and Berlin after the 
discussions here end Sunday, 
and that the president will re- 
peat his assurances that expan- 
sion of NATO would not he a 
threat to Russia when be sees 
Mr. Yeltsin. 

But Mr. din ion is thought 
unlikely to agree to German 
suggestions that Mr. Yeltsin be 
invited to all of the meetings of 
the next G-7 summit meeting in 
Canada next year. Japan, Brit- 
ain and probably France also 
scan unlikely to go along.

Haitians had no right to seek 
asylum in the United States. 
“What we owe the people of 
Haiti is safety,” he said. “There 
is no internationally recognized 
human right to go to a particu- 
lar place and to have a particu- 
lar response” 

During the presidential elec- 
tion, Mr. Qmton hammered 
the R ush adminis tration for its 
policy of returning fleeing Hai- 
tians to the country without the 
opportunity for a hearing about 
whether they would be eligible 

statements from his govern- for political asylum. But before 
meat threatening to respond to taking office, Mr. Clinton was 

pressure with military force, 
Mr. Kang said that "a common 
point” is that both sides want to 
resolve the issue through dia- 
logue and by peaceful means. 

Many U.S. officials had pre- 
dicted the discussions would 
move slowly, and few were 
more than cautiously optimistic 
about reaching an accord. The 
dispute, which stems from 
North Korea's refusal to allow 
full international inspections of 
its nudear-rdated activities, is 
already in its 17th month. 

Mr. Gaflucd, who last month 
argued that North Korea 
should be punished with eco- 
nomic sanctions, agreed to meet 
with Mr. Kang only after for- 
mer President Timmy Carter 
visited the North Korean capi- 
tal of Pyongyang and emerged 
with a promise that partial in- 
spections would go forward 
while the overall nuclear pro- 
gram remained frozen. 

The meeting Friday gave Mr. 
Gallucd an opportunity to do 
what some of the administra- 
tion’s critics have urged for the 
.last six months, namely provide 
details of the rewards North 
Korea can count on if it aban- 
doned its nudear activities. 

These include carefully 
phased moves toward a normal- 
ization of relations with Wash- 
ington, which currently lacks 
any diplomatic links with 
North Korea. They also include 
a U.S. pledge of nonaggression 
and assistance in replacing 
North Korea's existing ana 
planned nudear reactors - 

forced to renege on his promise 
to lift that policy out of fear of a 
flood of refugees. 

In May, responding to what 
it described as deteriorating hu- 
man rights conditions in Haiti, 
the administration decided to 
resume processing of claims of 
political asylum aboard ships. 
When the flow of refugees that 
it had feared then materialized, 
the administration shifted to 
the safe havens policy. 

President Guillermo Endara 
of Panama on Thursday re- 
voked his agreement to provide 
a safe haven for 10.000 refu- 
gees, saying that White House 
had changed the terms of the 
arrangement on him and that he 
had been bullied and mistreat- 
ed by administration officials. 

Mr. Clinton was circumspect 
in his comments about Mr. En- 
dara’s announcement. “The 
Panamanians will have to ex- 
plain their own actions and 
their retraction of their former 
position,” he said. "That is not 
for me to do ” 

Other officials were privately 
far more critical saying that 
Mr. Endara had volunteered 
the use of Panama as a facility 
for the refugees and suggesting 
that he was backing off in the 
face of intense domestic pres- 

A senior official, asked 
whether the United States 
would take any steps in re- 
sponse to Panama’s announce- 
ment, said, "We're still engaged 
in talking to them about the 
whole issue;”

will soon affect its structure. 

For now, it is the price scale

almost to hysteria. This week, 
within 24 hours, three extraor-

them world records, that would 
have seemed unthinkable even 
at the height of the artificially 
whigped-up market of the late 

The most spectacular by far 
is the £7,701,500 (SI 1.86 mil- 
lion) paid at Christie's on 
Wednesday for an Assyrian 
gray stone slab carved in low 
relief under King Ashumasir- 
pal n (883-859 B. C.). It comes 
from the most famous site of 
ancient Assyria, the king’s pal- 
ace near present-day Nimrud 
on the southern edge of Iraqi 
Kurdistan. The palace was sav- 
aged in the mid- 19th century by 
Sir Henry Layard who used an 
army OF peasants wielding picks 
and shovels to cart away as 
many of the huge reliefs and 
three-dimensional statues as he 
could remove. 

In the process, Layard lost 
quite a few, which sank to the 
bottom of the Tipis. Those 
that arrived in Britain were 
handed over to Sir John Guest, 
who had put up the money for 
the art-hunting expedition. 
They were set up in a folly 
designed in 1851 by the archi- 
tect Charles Barry on the 
grounds of Guest’s house, 
Canford Manor. Layard mar- 
ried Guest's daughter and died 
surrounded by an aura of glo- 
ry. In 1919, Guest’s grandson. 
Lord Wimbora, sold off most 
of the sculptures. 

Some, acquired by John D. 
Rockefeller, grace tire Assyrian 
room in the Metropolitan Mu- 
seum; others are in the British 
Museum. A few strayed in vari- 
ous directions and a handful 
stayed on in “Nineveh Court,** 
which was turned into a candy 
shop for the children when 
Canford Manor became Can- 
ford School in 1923. 

When the governors of the 
school decided to sdl off seven 
remaining reliefs al Sotheby’s, 
on Nov. 16, 1959, there was 
great interest among the small 
number of connoisseurs in- 
volved in those days, but no 
wind of madness. John Hewett, 
a dealer, got one erf the finest 
reliefs for £4,000.

Twenty years later, things 
had changed. Museums had 
mushroomed, there were now

scarcer. A winged deity 119 by

Assyrian reliefs provides a mcar 
sure of the current sense of ur- 
gency when an opportunity to 
buy something extraordinary 
arises. The carved narwhal horn 
of the 12th century, which was 
sold at Christie’s on Tuesday 
for £441,500, is a deeply myste- 
rious object It must have been 
seen as such when it was carved 
with its beautiful Romanesque 
motifs almost all the way up its 
114 centimeters. 

In the Middle Ages, the horn 
of this small arctic whale was 
avidly sought after, from Con- 
stantinople and the Arab world 
to Scandinavia. In Europe, it 
was thought of as the horn of 

the unicorn, which in turn was 
considered a symbol of Christ 
Horns were kept in church trea- 
suries, mostly undecorated. The 
Christie’s horn, and a closely 
related niece in the Victoria & 
Albert Museum are the only 
known horns to display such 
intricate, highly sophisticated 

The added attractions of the 
Christie’s horn are that it is in 
better condition — it could be 
characterized as pristine for an 
object of that age — and that it 
was virtually unknown until it 
was reproduced in Christie's 
sale catalogue. It was bought 
for £12 by the vendor’s father in 
1957 as part of a bundle of 
walking sticks during the sale of 
the contents of a house in the 
Cathedral Close at Hereford. 
Little else is known about it, at 
indeed about the Victoria & Al- 
bert bom. 

Their destination is a matter 
for speculation. Where the two 
horns were carved is equally un- 
certain. In the 1950s they were 
considered to be German, from 
the Rhenish area. Now they are 
called English. 

The suiprise effect played a 
role in its huge price, but so 
did, above all, the near impos- 
sibility nowadays of finding 
major Romanesque ivoty or 
bone carvings, let alone one of 
that size ana splendor. In the 
1950s, it might have reached, 
with great difficulty, £1,000 or 
so in one of the better auctions, 
like the Assyrian reliefs, the 
horn was propelled to strato- 
spheric heights by the current 
atmosphere of feverish compe- 
tition between museums and 

its secondary effect on high- 
powered collectors. 

Because it did not concern a 
major museum work, the most 
tdfing record this week was 
probably the £4,181,500 paid 
on Wednesday at Sotheby’s for 
a painting considered to be by 
Adbert Cuyp. 

It is a strange picture. In a 
landscape of Netherlandish ap- 
pearance, exotic animal* are 
strewn about — a camel stands 
rather improbably at the en- 
trance erf a Neath European for- 
est, an deplmnt is seen trotting 

on a hfllgiri ft in and 

so on. Two leopard cubs seem 
to have been dropped out of 
nowhere right in the fore- 
ground. These closely resemble 
two cubs in a painting done in 
1639 by Cuyp s father, Jacob 
Gerritsz Cuyp, who was also his 
master. The catalogue con- 
cludes that the leopards, al- 
though not the other animals 
nor the landscape, are the fa- 
ther's work. 

This makes it a hybrid. The 
picture is very well painted and 
curious, hardly an unforgetta- 
ble masterpiece. Furious com- 
petition between a syndicate of 
four dealers — Johnny Van- 
Had: ten of London, Konrad v 
Bemhamer of Munich, Otto 
Naumarm of New York," .and 
Tim Bathurst of Artemis, Lot ’ 
don — outbidding Richard 
Greene of London, resulted jxt - 
the current record for any 
painting whether partly or cn- 
tirdy by Adbert Cuyp. 

The same feverish atmo- 
sphere can just as easily lead to 
overestimation and overkill. . 
The combination of the two ' 

proved the imdom^of the “Im- 
maculate Conception,” offered 
at Sotheby’s minutes after the 

C *?fe portrait of Mary stand- 
ing on the .moon globe was 
bought at Drouot on June 22, 
199 oT by the Faria dealer 
Charles BaiEy. The expert Eric 
Turquin, noting its close re- 
semblance to the master’s 
painting in the National Gal- 
lery, London, catalogued it as 
“from the circle of Diego Ye- 
Uzquez” and gave it a 300,000 
to 400,000 franc ($55,000 to 
$75,000) estimate, Baflly, con- 
vinced it was a Vdfizquez, bat- 
tled against the London trade 
and bid up to 18 million francs 
to get it 

The dealer then organized a 
fantastic publicity drive around 
his picture- and consigned it to 
Sotheby’s. The auction house, 
going along with his conviction 
that it is a Vdftzqucz, gave it an 
estimate of £3.5 ntimon to £4 
million ($54 mQfion to $6.15 

Unfortunately, not everyone 
shared this conviction. Qeariy 
not the Louvre, whose curators 
gave it an export license; nor 
Alfonso Ffe re z S&nchez, a for- 
ma* Prado director, vvho sees it 
as the work of Alonso Cano. 

The room sat stony-faced as 
mythical bids were called out. 
They stopped at £4 million, 
leaving the picture unsold. It is 
now commercially dead for 
quite awh3e.-- ■ 

Throughout the week dozens 
of cases of overestimation, gen- 
erated by penury, wrought hav- 
oc. More man 40 percent of the 
European wads of art offered

crisis isto be- avoided 

■ Iraq Protests Sale 

The. Iracp government says 
the Assyrian relief was. in ef- 
fect, stolen from what is now 
Iraq and condemned the British 
government for allowing Chris- 
tie’s to sell it, Reuters reported 
from Baghdad 

A spokesman of the Cultural 
and Information Ministry said 
that Iraq bad tried in vain to 
block the sale and that it would 
use all legal means to recover it 

“This anction reflects the de- 

gpic&hlt^and degrading stan^' 
pitn df ir dealing with human cni- 

.time and civilization in Britain 
and particularly the West,” the 
spokesman said 

Last week I wrote that the 
small self-portrait by Degas 
was sold after the sale. It actual-

It began uneasily 62 years ago in Cleveland. 
His father, Sigmund Benway, ran away, to, 
California wbeathebaby was only 2. “He was 
a loser, a gambler, a poor guy who was proba- 
bly too embarrassed to look me up and. died 
in the late ’40s m LA." In 1941 his school- 
teacher mother married “a wonderftil guy 
named Walter Kitaj whom I loved.” .

it all became much mare meaningful. 

After a stintas a merribant seamahin the 
late ’40s, he worked on oO tankers in the

* Life in a Dollhouse: 
A Collector’s Dream 

By Rita Rdf 

New York Times Senior 

N EW YORK — A chair as small as a thimble, a highboy 
a mere yard high, or a Orihuahna-size bed may look 
silly individually, but a crowd of these lillipatian 
delimits makes it dear why some collectors pursue 
them so obsessivdy. 

Tiny trifles may trigger a rocket bade to childhood for unsus- 
pecting adults. And, once seduced into buying a mini-chest, a 
mini-chair or a mini-desk, people tend to treat these adult toys like 
sculpture, displaying them on shelves or as end tables. No one ever 
admits it, but most people yearn at one time or another to live in a 
dollhouse. - , .,1 ... 

Was this the secret reason that Philip Parker, a London dealer 
who died in 1983, collected so xnany miniatures? The Parker 

test of such things wten it was aucttoned^Sotlieb]i^ni New 

Not since 1980 had so many small-scale period chairs^ chests 
and tables been auctioned at one rime. White -of medium quality 
— only 21 were sold, 10 at prices bdow Sotheby's expectations — 
the Parker holdings induced some charmers. In addition to an 
unusual assortment of tilt-top, gateleg, drop-leaf and tavern 
tables, there were chests of drawers, desks, a four-poster bed, a 
corner cabinet and a stepladder. along with chairs in the Jacobean, 

Regency, Windsor and Ouppeqdafe styles.

HOUGH it’s billed as Vol- 
ume II of “The Border Trfl- 
Cormac McCarthy's lat- 
est novel, “The Crossing,” is 
less a sequel to his award-win- 
ning book “AH the Pretty Hors- 
es” (1992) than a loose varia- 
tion on its themes of loss, exile, 
violence and fate. . .. 

Once again, McCarth y give s 
us the story of two resourceful 
boys who leave their home in 
the States and make the danger- 
ous crossing into Mexico. And 
once again, their crossing be- 
comes a kind of metaphor for 
the emotional traversing of bor- 
ders between civilizatkm and 
nature, order and chaos. 

In his earlier books. McCar- 
thy's debt to Faulkner —- in 
terms of both language and vio- 
lent subject matter — has been 
ferociously clear. ' . # 

In “The Crossing, that debt 
has not only been pushed to the 
point of parody, but it has also 
Keen ornamented with gratu- 
itous borrowings from Cervan- 
tes, Hemingway, Gabriel Garcia

the novel achieves

ARTS — Joan Mitchdl died in 
Paris more than a year and a 
half ago. She had been living 
in V&beufl since 1967, in a 
iditfly situated on a cliff 
overlooking a bead in the Seine ((he 
gardener’s itoose below had once been 
used by Monet). 

Like many true artists* she was a 
contradictory and solitary figure and 
her large, .vigorous paintings are both 
an expression and a trace of her dia- 
logue or rimmn^ argument with exis- 
tence. An exhibition erf Mitchell's late 
work at the Musfce dn Jeu dc Paume in 
Paris (through Sept. 11) and another of 
earlier work, at the Muste des Beaux- 
Aits in Nantes (through Sept. 26) re-

was capable and remind one that she 
was among the truly outstanding 
painters of her generation.

that Mitchell was able to buy the house 
she lived in to the last. 

She first came to France on a grant 
in 1947, arriving at Le Havre on a

Paris, but she was too independent and 
contrary really to enjoy the social side 
of the art scene.

Chicago. Her mother was a poet; her 
father, apromment dermatologist, was 
once blindfolded by the mob and tak-

ilis. -

she was a pretty, energetic and out- 
spoken young woman — the latter 
trait developing noticeably in later 
years. An admiring critic once de- 
scribed her as “disconcertingly forth- 

Returning to America two years 
later, she settled in New York, where 
she underwent analysis, met such art- 
ists as Franz Kline and Willem de 
Kooning and, in her own words, 
“found ner life.** These artists, and 
the New York scene, provided her 
with the criteria that were to shape 
her life work. 

Six years later, she nonetheless re- 
turned to France where she met the 
French- Canadian painter Jean-Paul 
RiopeUe, another powerful artist and 
a larger-than-life figure with whom 
she lived until 1979. RiopeUe moved 
back to Canada, where he now lives 
and works in the wilds, having grown

The rest is painting. 

Most of the time the works are glori- 
ously satisfying. Sometimes, although 

Mitchell was allergic 
to labels and generally 
objected to being 
deSned in terms of 
schools and trends . 

Some critics described her as an Ab- 
stract Impressionist (a term she deeply 
hated), seizing upon the fact chat she 
was living on Monet's turf. 

Yet, in a sense, there is something to 
be said in favor of the term — provid- 
ed one avoids any actual assimilation 
with the ideas of Impressionism. After 
all, as Mitchell pointed out, Monet 
ventured to render nature with a new 
sort of visual accuracy.

more formal one (various oil colors 
arranged on a painted surface), and 
an understanding of her art as a sort

allusive manner is, after all, a risky 

What the spectator sees is above all 
a conjunction of luminous colors, 
which some are tempted to view as 
“abstract,” but which others, following 
occasional hints from the artist herself, 
sense as transposed evocations of na- 

Mitchell certainly did not attempt 
anything like that. But her colors 
(green, yellow, blue, or red), set togeth- 
er in broad, gloriously erratic brush- 
strokes, speak out in harmony like so 
many rich instrumental tones, and 
seem to have been borrowed from the 
same natural setting that inspired the 
Impressionists. The big diptychs ap- 
pear to confront one with the close-up, 
verdant intimacy of grass, leaf and 
varicolored petal, vibrating in the 
warming light of the sun. 

This triangular reference between 
nature, surface and soul keeps the 
viewer’s perception oscillating restless-

Mitchell used the rich seduction of 
color to awaken a sense of nostalgia 
that appears lo touch upon the per- 
spectives of life and death. 

The Iasi time we met she mentioned 
sitting out on the lawn in from of the 
studio one day enjoying the sun with 
her dpgs. 

All art thrives on ambiguity, and 
Mitchell was quite right to reject any 
obvious classification. Even the evoca- 
tion of nature I have just suggested 
would fail to be convincing if it were 
merely that and no more. 

The three of them were communing 
in a deep, wordless well-being when 
Mitchell noticed that a snake had 
coiled itself over her foot. She was not 
at all alarmed but regarded the pres- 
ence of the snake as a sign of sons.

China’s domestic stock mar- 
ket is in turmoil as waves of new

offering much better invest- 
ment returns have sent its A- 
shares spiraling downward. 

At the same time, the Chinese 
traded shares designated for 

foreigners only, B-shares, have 
also performed poorly as early 
euphoria about thdr creation 
has given way to doubts about 
individual companies’ business 
plans and future profitability. 

Difficulties on all fronts have 
confronted Chinese securities 
regulators with a host of unpal-

with an inevitable loss of con- 
trol over individual companies 
— to raising less cash from the

In an attempt to comply with 
investor demand, lead under-

International Herald Tribune 1 
NEW YORK — Signaling a 
robust U.S. economy, the gov- i 
e mmen t on Friday reported i 
strong job growth in June with- 1 
out wage inflation. ' 

The news, which raised ex- j 
pecia lions in the financial mar- ^ 
kets that the Federal Reserve < 
Board would push U.S. interest ' 
rates up sooner rather than lat- ! 
er, sent bond prices tumbling | 
but failed to rouse the dollar 
out of its slump. 

The Labor Department re- 
ported that the U.S. economy 
created 379,000 new jobs in 
June, around 100,000 more 
than forecasters had expected. 
Labor Department specialists 
warned that most of those extra 
jobs probably would be given 
back this month, as the June 
survey had an extra week in it 
because of calendar quirks. 

That would keep the growth 
on a track or about a quarter of 
a million jobs a month, almost 
entirely in the service sector and 
many m part-time or temporary 
c umme r employment — includ- 
ing thousands hired to handle 
World Cup visitors. These sum- 
mer jobs helped depress wages. 
and June’s average hourly earn- 
ings actually declined one cent, 
to $11.08, while the work week 
declined one-tenth of an hour, 
to 42 hours. 

In Naples, leaders of the 
Group of Seven industrialized 
nations were gathering for their 
summit meeting seemed con- 
tent to urge markets to “keep 
focusing on the fundamentals,” 
as President Bill Clinton put it. 
Meanwhile, Lloyd Bentsen, the 
U.S. Treasury secretary, said he 
saw no need for higher interest 
rates “at this point” 

The monthly employment 
numbers were strong enough to 
convince most of Wall Street 
tha t the Fed would raise interest 
rates eventually but not now, 
“when the G-7 is having a meet- 
• mg and just tins sort of thing is 

bring discussed,” said Allan Si- 
nai of Lehman Brothers. 

The unemployment rate re- 
mained stable at 6 percent, 
which many economists take as 
the minimum level before infla- 
tion starts kicking in. But the 
rate remained low in large part 
because the labor force has de- 
clined by 419,000 since the start 
of the year — when demograph- 
ic forecasts say it actually 
should have gone up by 

There is no explanation for 
these missing workers. But if

Metals Giant 
Continues Loss 
On U.S. Unit 

Bloomberg Business Nm 

tallgesellschaft AG, still 
reeling from losses at its 
U.S. oil-trading unit, re- 
corded a loss of 1.54 billion 
Deutsche marks ($970 mil- 
lion) for the first half of its 
financial year. 

The metals and mining 
company said it would have 
reported a profit for the six 
months ended March 30 
but for the U.S. subsidiary, 
Metallgesellschaft Corp. 
Because of that unit’s 
losses, Metallgesellschaft 
reached the brink of bank- 
ruptcy in late 1993. 

For the full year, Metall- 
gesellschaft forecast a loss 
of about 1.9 billion DM, 
unchanged from the previ- 
ous year. That means that 
in the second half the com- 
pany will record another 
loss of more than 300 mil- 
lion marks that cannot be 
blamed on U.S. operations.

Compiled by Ov Staff From Dapatdsa 

NEW YORK — Blue-chip 
stocks climbed for the fifth 
straight session Friday after the 
Federal Reserve failed to raise 
interest rates despite a stronger- 
than-expected June emploY- 

than-expected June employ- 
ment report. 

Hie Dow Jones industrial av- 
erage dosed 20.72 paints higher 

U.S. Stocks 

at 3,709.14. In the broader mar- 
ket, however, there were six los- 
ers for every five gainers. 

Although the Fed did not 
raise the interest rates that it 
controls after the strong jobs 
report, concern over the rising 
general level of rates weighed 
on the broader market and on 
the bond market. 

A spurt in the price of Alcoa 
after release of the company’s 
second-quarter results, plus 
buying of other cyclical stocks, 
helped hoist the Dow Jones in- 
dustrial average back above 

Bond traders, however, 
bailed out of the market imme- 

diately after the employment 
figures woe released. 

Prices of all maturities of 
U.S. Treasury notes and bonds 
remained lower, with the 30- 
year issue off $8.75 for each 
51,000 of face value, driving its 
yield up to 7.69 percent from 
7.60 percent late Thursday. 

Trading was moderate, with 
233.6 mifnon shares changing 
hands by the close of trading on 
the Big Board, compared with 
258.5 million in the previous 

The NYSE’s composite index 
advanced 0.54 to 248.11. The 
Nasdaq index was up 0.44 to 
706.97. At the American Stock 
Exchange, the Market Value In- 
dex was 0.80 higher at 425.45. 

Nike shares touched a 52- 
week high of 62% after the 
world’s largest athletic shoe 
company reported better- than- 
expected fourth-quarter earn- 
ings. The shares dosed at 62M, 
up 214, on volume of 674^200 
shares, almost triple its three- 
month daily average.

they show up later in the statis- 
tics as job-seekers, they will 
raise the unemployment rate 
and relieve the Fed's inflation- 
ary fears. 

These aberrations in both the 

job-creation and unemploy- 
ment statistics are among the 

Foreign Exchange 

factors thought to be keeping 
the Fed temporarily on hold. 
There is a wide spectrum of 
opinion on Wall Street about 
when the central bank will actu- 
ally tighten, ranging from next 
week, when strong retail sales 
figures for June are expected, to 
as late as September. 

Markets already had begun 

driving up rates with Friday’s 
report Yields on 30-year Trea- 

report Yields on 30-year Trea- 
sury bonds rose to 7.69 percent. 

suiy bonds rose to 7.69 percent, 
the highest since Nov. 9, 19 92. 

Since the start of the year, the 
Fed has raised rates a total of 
1.25 percentage points in incre- 
ments of one-quarter of a per- 
centage point to by to stay 
ahead of inflation. 

None of this helped the dol- 
lar on Friday. It took another 
sharp dive when Mr. Clinton 
told the press in Naples that 

things could be worse — that 
the dollar had been lower 
against the Deutsche mark in 
the past and would rebound in 
due course. 

The dollar dosed at 1-5610 
Deutsche marks in New York 
trading, down from 15716 DM 
cm Thursday. It also was down 
to 98.055 yen from 98.600 yen, 
to 1.3160 Swiss francs from 
1.3235 and to 53650 French 
francs from 5.4035. The pound 
was at SI. 5495, up from 

But a dollar rebound seemed 
to be the growing view in New 
York, although traders, in typi- 
cal fashion, also rushed to cover 
their positions. Sam Kahan of 
Fvgl Securities said Wall Street 
had begun to accept that the 
dollar was not in real trouble, as 
it was actually getting stronger 
against the currencies of such 
major U.S. trading partners as 
Mexico and Canaria. 

The Group of Seven will a cl 
wisely if it rides out the storm, 
said David Roll

2drPeriod Profit 
As Sales Recover 

Complied by Owr Staff Emm Dispatches ' 

mann AG said Friday that riming 
sales helped it return to profit in 
the second quarter, but it failed 
to break even for the first half. 

The company's shares fell af- 
ter the figures were announced, 
finishing at 407 Deutsche 
marks ($258), down from 
41ZJ20 Thursday. Traders said 
some investors were disap- 
pointed that Mannesmann 
didn’t have a first-half p ro fi t, 
and analysts said forecasts for 
1994 could be cut if continued 
dollar weakness hits exports as 
the company warned it might 
First-half sales were 10 per- 
cent higher than a year earner, 
at 14J trillion DM, while new 
orders rose 19 percent, to 16.8 
billion DM. The company did 
not disclose 
In 1993, Mannesmann had a 
net loss of 513 million DM, re- 

hy as much as five years in pris- 
on- Mr. Waigd said the mea- 
sures would makeGennan mar- 
kets more open and transparent. 

“The confidence of domestic 
and foreign investors in how 
business is -done is of consider- 
able importance for the attrac- 
tiveness of a center," 

Mr. Waigel said. “A new era is 

versing a^profit in 1992 of 63 

million D1 

The company's shareholders 
elected Werner Dieter, who 
stepped down as chaumanTri- 
day, to the supervisory board 
despite investigations against 
him <m suspicion of fraud. 

“Our result has improved 
considerably against the same 
period of the previous year, but 
because of the weak sales in the 
months of January and Febru- 
ary it remained sfightly nega- 
tive,” Mr. Dieter -said. 

The Bundesral also cleared 
the way for the privatization of 
Deutsche Telekom, which will 
be fisted on stock markets start- 
in 1996. ; 

Bundesrat, which is con- 
trolled by the opposition Social 
Democratic Party, approved 
the conversion of the threedivi- 
sidns of the post office — Tele- 
kom, Postdknst and Postbank 
—into joint stock companies as 
of Jan. 1,1995. 

A first tranche of Telekom 
shares, valued at as much as 20 
billion Deutsche marks ($13 
billion), will be floated on stock 
markets in early 1996. 

.Another item approved by 
the Bundesrat is a

fees for

An Offer They’d Like to Refuse 

Foreign Firms in Moscow Feel Pressure From Mafia 

- By .Michael Specter 

■ New York Timet Service 

MOSCOW — After years in which the 
hydra-headed Russian mafia has openly 
penetrated virtually every level of local 
busihess,"f6rcign^ companies Operating 
here.— big CTnaTT l famous «Tid un- 
known —have begun to fed increasing 
pressure from criminal organizations. 

The companies’ situation is nothing 
like it is for Russians, for whom threats, 
intimidation extortion and violence have 
becomeroutinc. But thugs from Moscow 
gangs and more polished representatives 
from the mafia — as Russians call their 
criminal organizations — have increas- 
ingly turned then: attention to American 
businesses in the last few months. 

. U.S. diplomats report a rise — to more 
tb«n a dozen this year from two in all of 
last year — in the number of companies 
acknowledging visits from gangs that 
seek to protect them. 

ha perhaps the most alarming recent 
madebt, gangsters paid a call on the 
Moscow office of (he U.S. Chamber of 
Commerce, demanding the list of all 
companies that are members, their ad- 
dresses and their phone numbers. Offi- 
cials refused the request, according to 
three chamber members who, like almost 
everyone else interviewed on the subject, 
demanded anonymity. 

“I still consider it safe for Westerners to 
work here, and I encourage them to do so 
all the time,” said Richard A Conn Jr r a 
lawyer with T-atham & Watkins, which 
represents several international corpora- 
tions doing business in Russia. “But the 

tive of any American company is known 
to have been killed by the mob, although 
such killing s occur almost weekly among 
Russian businessmen, especially bankers. 

The days are over, however, when U.S. 
companies could afford to neglect what 
the Interior Ministry says are more than 
5,000 gangs operating here, or when 
Americans could permit their Russian 
partners to silently and secretly handle 
issues such as crime and payoffs. 

“We hired the bad guys m white hats 
to protect os from the bad guys in blade 

The growth of the mob 
has been dramatic, and 
there just isn’t a pass for 
American businesses from 
the mafia anymore.’ 

Richard A. Conn Jr., 

U.S. lawyer 

i just isn’t a pass for American busi- 
nesses from the mafia anymore.” 

Mr. fVwm and most others said official 
corruption, an irrational tax system and a 
mistrust qf profit still hurt American bnsir 
nesses in Russia far more than crime does. 

The executives say that no representa- 

hats,” said Bruce Macdonald, director 
general of BBDO Marketing in Moscow, 
m explaining the presence at his advertis- 
ing agency of two Russians in camou- 
flage outfits aimed with pump shotguns. 

It has been impossible to gauge the 
level of crime carried out against foreign 
companies, because Russian partners in- 
variably take care of dealing with other 

“In general, people don’t want to 
know what they don’t have to know,” 
said Jeffrey M. Zeiger, whose Tren-Mos 
Bistro was the first American restaurant 
to open in Moscow. His Russian partner 
was gunned down in his garage last year, 
and even today Mr. Zeiger swears he 
never heard a word about payoffs or a 
hut of a problem before his partner died. 

Hotels and restaurants — the visible 

businesses with the obvious cash supply 
— are usually the first targets. Although 
they denied it, several of America’s most 
famous corporations have also been ap- 
proached, according to U.S. law enforce- 
ment officials. 

“The ones who come to us are almost 
always small businessmen,’’ said an 
American who insisted on being identi- 
fied only as an embassy official. “Does 
that mean that McDonald’s isn’t both- 
ered or that Coke has no problems? Not 
necessarily. But if they do, we don’t 
know about it” 

McDonald’s Carp, says it has no prob- 
lems with gangsters in Moscow. 

“It would take a fairly aggressive and 
sophisticated group to bother McDon- 
ald's,” said Sergei Bogdonov, a spokes- 
man for the organized-crime division of 
the Federal Counterintelligence Service, 
previously the KGB. 

Many of the criminal gang * started in 
the Soviet labor camps, to which some 
prisoners were sent for commuting (he 
sin of seeking profit When suddenly 
communism was bad and profits were 
good, criminals were often the only Rus- 
sians who knew what to do. 

Many companies that contend they 
have had no problem with crime should 
look more closely at their rent Russian 
police officials say, because payoffs to 
mobsters may be hidden in the $8,000 to 
$10,000 a month that it often costs to 
rent a decent office. 

“To me, acting surprised that people 
in this type of environment are seeking to 
take your money illegally is like showing 
surprise that the sun came up this morn- 
ing,” said John K. Bailey, managing di- 
rector of Johnson & Johnson in Russia. 
“This is a difficult working environment. 
It seems stupid to have to keep repeating 
it, but the greatest rewards are usually 
not far from the greatest risks.” 

SS ! U.K. Insider-Trade Inquiry Cites Archer .. usms them. M. w 

By Richard W. Stevenson 

New York Times Sendee 

LONDON — As Jeffrey Ar- 
cher, he is the author of best- 
selling pulp novels such as 
“Kane and Abel,” “First 
Among Equals” and “Honor 
Among Thieves.” As Lord Ar- 
cher, he is dose friend to Prime 
Minister John Major and tire- 
less campaigner for Britain’s 
governing Conservative Party. 

But he is no stranger to con- 
troversy in either guise, and 

now, just as he seemed set to 
take a more prominent role in 
politics here, Mr. Archer is un- 
der investigation by British au- 
thorities fm* inrider trading. 

The Department of 'Dade 
and Industry said late Thursday 
that it was investigating Mr. Ar- 
cher for possible criminal insid- 
er trading violations r elating to 
a $450 milli on takeover bid in 
January for Anglia Televirion 
Group PLC, a British broad- 
casting company, by MAI PLC,

Mr. Archer’s wife, Mary, was 
cm the board of Anglia, which 
later agreed to the merger. 

In a brief interview with The 
Times of London, Mr. Archer, 
who is 54 and one of Britain's 
wealthiest men, said that he had 
not done anything wrong. 

“It is completely untrue,” be 
said, “1 did not buy any shares. 
1 am not going to make a state- 
ment That sort of accusation is 
libelous. ~ 

Neither Angfia, which also 
confir med that there was an in- 
vestigation, nor the Department 
of Trade and Indnsny provided 
any details of the case. The 
Tunes reported that the inquiry 
had been set off when a stock- 
broker reported possible irregu- 
larities to the London Stock Ex- 
change shortly after the bid was 
announced on Jan. 18. The slock 
exchange's inrider trading unit 
then submitted a report to the 
Department cf Trade and In- 
dustry for farther investigation, 
the newspaper said. 

Mr. Archer was elected to Par- 
liament at age 29, but resigned 
his seat five years later, in 1974, 

after a business deal went sour, 
leaving him nearly penniless. 
Seeking a way to rebuild his for- 
tune, he wrote his first novel, 
“Not a Penny More, Not a Pen- 
ny Less.” The book sold well, as 
did those that have followed.

In Bribery Case 


TOKYO — Police searched 
the headquarters of Nippon 
Telegraph & Telephone Carp, 
and more than 10 other loca- 
tions Friday after the arrest of 
an NTT executive accused of 
accepting a bribe, Kyodo news 
agency reported. 

Tasaki Takay ama, 53. a sec- 
tion chief for NTT’s Toholcu 
branch in Sendai, allegedly re- 
ceived 20 million yen 
($202,000) from a Tokyo res- 
taurateur in return for helping 
him win a contract for a restau- 
rant .in . the NTT Makuhari 
Building in Quba. 

Masato Hamada, 41, who 
was also arrested Thursday 
night, allegedly gave Mr. Ta- 
kayama the money in 20 instru- 
ments starting in 199 1. 

Mr. Takayama took out a 
loan from a Tokyo tank in 1987 
to invest 50 million yen in NTT: 
shares as part of a campaign to 
get employees to invest in the 
company, police said. Police

Yen Raises China’s Costs 

Firms Consider Switching Suppliers 

• Reuters 

. SHANGHAI — Chinese manufacturers, 
scrambling to cope whh a soaring yen that has 
raised prices of Japanese goods, are cutting 
costs and considering switching suppliers. 

Companies that buy parts and raw materi- 
als from Japan, inclu ding some of the coun- 
try’s largest enterprises with class B shares for 

foreign investors, are confident they can ride 
out tne < 

currency shoct 

But the yen’s rise is an added concern for B- 
sharc investors already jittery about the im- 
pact on Chinese corporate profits of surging 
inflation and a credit dampdown. 

Investment analysis said an immediate fear 
was that the currency risk might discourage 
Japanese investment in doDar-denommated B- 
sfaares just as Japanese investment houses were 
showing more interest in Chinese equities. 

“We had expected some involvement from 
Japanese investors,” an analyst at Baring Se- 
curities Ltd. said Friday. He added that the 
higher yea “may be an issue.” 

Individual companies reliant on Japanese 
imports might be affected if the dollar weak- 
ened to 90 or even 85 yea, he said. The dollar 
closed Friday in Tokyo at 98.60 yen. 

A gpnWwman for Shanghai ShangKng Hec- 
tric Appliances Co_, a maker of refrigerators 
and air conditioners, likened the effects of the 
yen’s rally to the sudden rise of the dollar 
against (Ire yuan last year. 

The company said it was responding by 
expanding production facilities. 

“Last year when the exchange rate was 11 
yuan to the do&ar, we survived," he said. “I 
don’t dunk the effect will be mud) more than 
thaL” The yuan is now around 8.6 to the dollar. 

.Shangfing imports between 20 percent and 

ancf'Wpexcent to 5<?percent of thosefor air 
conditioners, mainly from Japan. 

For Shanghai Haixin Co., which makes 
plush fabric for China’s booming exports of 

stuffed toys, the potential impact is greater. 
In 1992, the company bought 96 percent of its 
raw materials from Japan, chiefly acrylic and 
polyester fiber. 

But a spokesman for Haixin dismissed con- 
cerns the high yen would raise input prices, 
saying Japanese suppliers would have to cut 
their profit margins instead. 

- “Our imports from Japan are priced in U.S. 
dollars.” he said. “With the appreciation of 
die yen, of course, theyTl want to raise their 
dollar prices, but we’re their biggest customer 
in mainland China.” 

Other Chinese companies agreed that the 
yen’s rise would have only a marginal impact 
on their operations.

Sanxnao Textile Co_, which makes garmentc 

Hie appreciating yen has 
added to the corporate

companies that depend on 
Japan for raw materials. 


from Australian wool for domestic and 
use, said his company had already cut 
imports of refined wool from Japan. 

‘Now it’s mostly domestically processed.” 
he said, adding that China’s lower costs made 
it more economical to buy raw wool directly 
from Australia. 

In 1992, Sanmao bought 34 percent of its 
wool supplies from Japanese processors. But 
with the company’s issue of B-shares at the end 
of 1993, pressures for efficiency are rising. 

“Now that we’re a joint-stock company, we 
have to increase our profits every year,” Mr. 
Wu said. 

Korea Capitalizes, in the Short Term 

Agence Fraace-Presse 

SEOUL — The soaring yen has brought 
South Korea a rash of orders from Japanese 
companies frying to escape high costs at 
home, but h has also raised concerns about 
possible long-term side effects. 

Daewoo Co rp. recently won orders for S3.3 
millio n of excavator parts from Hitachi Corp. 
and S 1 million worth of parts from Sumimoto 
Corp., according to government data. 

. Mando Machinery Corp. landed Japanese 
orders for electronic automotive parts valued 
at $200 million, while Samomg Electro-Me- 
chanics Co. won a hefty pacta ge of orders 
from several Japanese companies. 

But not everyone here is thrilled by the 
unabated rise of the Japanese currency. 

In the short term, a strong yen leads to 
rapid expansion in Korean exports because 
Korean goods become more competitive in 
overseas markets. 

But South Korea’s heavy reliance on raw 

materials and machinery — costs of which are 
rising in line with the yen — detracts from the 

“A wave erf red ink in the trade balance 
with Japan would obliterate whatever hope 
we have erf coming out the overall winner in 
terms of profit,” said Nam Jang Keun, a 
researcher at the Korean Institute for Indus- 
trial Economy and Trade. 

The Trade Ministry has forecast this year’s 
trade deficit with Japan will reach a record of 
more than $10 billion. 

The government is studying ways to pro- 
vide certain companies with financial aid to 
help bring down that deficit. 

But the longer the yen’s strength continues, 
the greater the potential for adverse affects on 
South Korea’s economy, analysts say. 

“The trend could srniff out any improve- 
ment in Korean industrial competitiveness,” 
said Lee Gbeol Soon, a economist at the 
Daewoo Research Institute: 

Big Insurer 
In Malaysia 
Ordered to 

Agence France- Prase 

laysia’s largest general insurer. 
Mercantile Insurance Sdn„ was 
directed Friday to liquidate af- 
ter it had became insolvent. 

It was the first such case in 
Malaysia’s growing insurance 

The central bank said Fi- 
nance Minister Anwar Ibrahim 
had issued the directive because 
the company was faring a capi- 
tal deficiency. 

Pending approval of the or- 
der by the High Court, the cen- 
tral bank appointed liquidators 
for the insurer, whose 1993 ac- 
counts showed a capital defi- 
ciency of 392.7 million ringgit 
($157 million), bank officials 

The bank, which assumed 
control over the property, busi- 
ness and other affairs of the 
company in 1991, directed Mer- 
cantile two months ago to cease 
writing new business and sus- 
pend payments to claimants 
and creditors. 

The 263,000 policyholders of 
Mercantile were asked to ob- 
tain policies with other insurers. 

The central bank said it pro- 
posed to pay policyholders, 
claiman ts and creditors 70 per- 
cent of their claims from an 
insurance guarantee fund, at an 
expected cost of more than 200 
million ringgit. 

But the central bank warned 
that policyholders would not be 
provided with any insurance 
coverage when their policies 
were terminated on the effec- 
tive date of the liquidation or- 

Since taking over the supervi- 
sion of the insurance industry 
in 1988, the central bank has 
been frying to enhance the cred- 
ibility of a group of 59 local 
insurers, some of whom have 
been plagued by capital inade- 
' and a lack of professional

Indonesia Opens to Investors 


JAKARTA — Indonesia 
plans to raise the 49 percent 
limit on foreign share owner- 

ship to an unspecified amount, 
line 1 

The central bank is closely 
monitoring the capital base of 
at least five others, insurance 
sources said. 

Malaysia’s general insurance 
business recorded a 20.6 per- 
cent increase in written premi- 
ums, to 2.89 billion ringgit, in 
1992, according to the latest 
available figures from the cen- 
tral bank. 

id line with new foreign invest- 
ment rules announced last 
month, a finance ministry 
spokesman said Friday. 

Under previous rules, foreign 
investors had to ensure that lo- 
cal partners bad a 51 percent 
stake in projects after 20 years. 

Indonesia faces stiff competi- 
tion from China, Vietnam and 
India for foreign investors’ 

■ Sempati Goes Public

Avoid Outgo 
In the Quest 
For Income 

By Lawrence Malkin 

W HEN interest-rate fever starts 
coding, as many say it will, 
the frantic search for higher 
yields win resume. That's why 
some analysts say that now is the time to 
start following some of Europe’s soundest 
banks to Wall Street. 

NVESTTNG for income is a simple 
phrase based on complex assump- 
tions. The concept of income rests 
upon its distinction from capital, and 

the concept of capital — at least from an 
individual investor’s point of view — is 
itself predicated on an underlying notion 
of value. 

What those banks have to sell from that 
locale is preferred stock winch offers im- 
pressive returns in UJL dollars. Preferred 
shares of major British, Irish, Australian 
and Spanish banks are yielding from 8 
percent to 12 percent a year before taxes, 
and cany little capital risk. They also 
don’t de up money for the long-term. 

To begin at the beginning: Investing for 
income only mak es sense in the context of 
preserving capital. If you invest $100 in 
J anuar y at a fixed annual rate of 3 per- 
cent, and then proceed to draw a monthly 
sum of $10 from your investment, you will 
nm out of money in November. 

So the payment of regular amounts 
does not of itself constitute income. The 
notion of not eroding your capital base is 
im plic it in the idea of income. Income is 
the golden egg that turns bad as soon as 
the goose becomes confit (foie. 

Most are the equivalent of five to ten- 
year bonds, because the banks can’t call 

.mmM ii 

them in for thatperiocL Even ten or twen- 
ty- year U.S. Treasuries and German

ty-year U.S. Treasuries and German 
Bunds don’t pay as welL 

The next question is: What constitutes 
erosion of capital? Clearly, drawing down 
large sums in excess of any interest or 
capital gain depletes capital very quickly. 

Preferred stock is a sort of a hybrid. To 
an investor, it is like a bend because its 
fixed interest rate is virtually certain to be 
paid unless the bank goes belly up — and 
for these banks to go under, their countries 
would probably have to go undo, too. 

U.S. banks issued preferred stock dar- 
ing the 1980s but have called most of it in 
and issued common stock instead. U.S. 
banking giant Citicorp, even in its most

parlous moments, never slapped a pre- 
ferred payment. 

But what happens if the investor is 
intent on preserving that $100, and takes 
only the monthly returns? At the end of 
the year, the $100 remains intact, and the 
investor has received $3. Is this successful 
investing for income? 

The answer depends entirely on the 
single most important factor for the small 
investor: Retail price inflation. If inflation

To the foreign banks, their preferred 
counts as stock and therefore fulfills the 
stiff er new capital requirements of the 
Bank for International Settlements. 

is stagnant, the investor has kept the pur- 
chasing power of the $100 and yet gener- 

ated some extra cash. If inflation is run- 
ning at 2 J percent, there is an apparent 
gain of 50 cents over the year. 

The moral is that investors should not 
be seduced by promises of high “income” 
unless there is a reasonable prospect of 
their capital retaining its value against 
inflation. »« » 

Since many foreign banks are not famil- 
iar names to most American investors, 
they have to pay higher rates to raise 
money — a boon for investors outside the 
States who already know the banks on 
their home turf and do not feel they are 
taking a big risk.

the current price of about $27 a share 
works out to a yield of about 11 percent 

Among otho* blue-chip issuers of pre- 
ferred stock are Britain’s big clearing 
banks — Barclays, Midland, National 
Westminster and the Royal Bank of Scot- 
land. Australia New Zealand Bank and 
Spain’s two soundest banks — Banco Bil- 
bao Vizcaya and Banco Santander, which 
is listed as Santander Overseas Carp. — 
also issue preferred shares. 

All the banks have “A” ratings «t«j 
their preferred shares yield, at current 

stocks offshore in Gibraltar and Puerto 
Rico, withhold nothing and thus are more 
suited for tax-sheltered trusts and Individ- 
ual Retirement Accounts. 

Banks typically issue preferred at $25 a 
share, and its price then moves in tandem 
with interest rates although with far less 
volatility than bonds. The prices of 30- 
year Treasuries have plummeted more 
than 16 percent from their highs last No- 
vember, while the average bank preferred 
stock has declined slightly less than 8 

“That means that when interest rates 
went up there was less capital loss, and 

when they go down there win be less 

capital gain, but there is more securityin 
the yield and you also can b&moredelib- 
crate in following the mad eet in deciding ' 

when to buy,” said Edward J. Burke 
Tucker Antnooy in New York, an analyst 
who follows preferred stock closely.

Convertibles: The Best of Two Worlds? 

By Rupert Bruce 

I MAGINE an investment hybrid 
that is part equity and part bond. 
Some might criticize such an instru- 
ment as neither fish nor fowl, but 
others see it as having much of the fun of 
equities with some of the safety of bonds. 

Such instruments, called “convertibles” 
are an esoteric breed of investment. They 
are issued as corporate bonds with a set 
lifespan, but can be converted into shares 
at a set price. They suit investors who 
want some exposure to shares, but who 
have relatively high income and safety 

in recent months, of course, the bond 
content has not saved the performance of 

convertibles, as h omimarif ew have phirwp d 
as much as, and often more than equities. 
This is not the typical course of events, 
however, and marry analysts expect con- 
vertibles to resume their relatively sedate 
character as soon as bond markets stabilize. 

Tim Thomas, London-based, manager 
of the Guinness Flight Global Strategy 
Convertible Fund, said: “A crude modefis 
that you capture about half the rise or fall 
in equity markets, but you get a bit of 
extra income. What has been happening is 
that with bonds going down, instead of 
getting half the fall you have been getting' 
about three quartos of the faH~ 

Professional investors determine 
whether convertibles are good Value by 
valuing both their bond element and tire 
option to convert, into shares. They value .

Convertibles are issued all over the 
world, but the biggest market is in Japan. 
Companies based in emerging Asian 
countries are also beginning to issue con- 
vertibles. According to Mr. Thomas, there 
is a dearth of quality convertibles issued 
by U.Sl companies. r ‘ '

When Picking Stocks 9 Weigh the Dividend Yield

T HERE. is nothing

But any serious analysis of a

that dividend payments, or the

Income Funds Back in Vogue 

By Alme Suffivan 


QUITY income funds are casting a

growth in the United States and Britain 
tr anslates into heal thier corporate earning s and 
mom generous dividend payouts. 

They are becoming morejjopular because the 
income factor provides a measure of 'stability, 
when markets arc volatile, said Kevin WtBdss, a 
fund manager at Fidelity Investment* in BoStOTL 
Investors in these funds want growth, he said, 
but also more security than is available through 
aggressive capital growth funds. .. 

“The income component .saves as a cushion, ” 
said Mr. Wilkins. “At least 65 percent of our 
funds must be-in dividend producing stocks: 
That makes equity income funds better for the 
long term Investor. ” “ 

Fidelity has two major equity income funds; 
the Fidelity Equity Income Fund and Fidelity 
Equity I nco me Fund JL Both cite . their j>iuhe

anon playing second fiddle: Both have high oon- 
centrations in the financial and, energy sectors, 
with about 20 percent of each m. foreign 
investments. • 

Both Fiddly funds have Out pe rformed the 
Standard and Foot?* 500 index over, the pari 
three years, but most income funds passed 
through a difficult period during the early 1990s. 
due to the U.S. and UJC recessions. 

The secret to success during.this difficultpexi- 
od, according to Mike Confess, a fund manager at 
Allied Dunbar in London, was the selection of 
stocks supported by strong manage ment teams . 

He identified the UJRL occtncal giant GECas 
being among these companies, as weS as chemi- 
cal a nd pharmaceutical firm s ICI and Zeneca 
(the former components of the combined .ICI 
group). These rams were able to- m aintain 
healthy dividend payments throughout the Brit- 
ish recession and are now stronger than expect- 
ed, he said. 

for many British firms, the beg innin g of xe- 
ivery dates from the sudden departure of ster- 
ling from the Exchange Rate Mechanism tftoe 
European Monetary System m September 1992. 
Philip Glaze, a director of the London-based 
independent fund monitoring service Fund Re- 
search Ltd, said that Britain’s out from the 
ERM paved the way for higher dividends as a 
result of the enhanced competitive portion -of 
British firms in export markets. 


Before sterling was devalued, a steady stream 
of 'British companies had ' been doing the un- 
thinkable and cutting their dividends. Investors 
in biramc funds bad been having a lean time. 

• Unlike their Asian and continental European 
counterparts, the management of listed UJS. and 
British companies cut dividends only as a last 
resort, for fear that the act will send mar compa- 
nies' share price, tumbling. Instead, they are 
wflEng to see dividend cover — the ratio of 
earnings to dividends — eroded and their scope 
in nmyffft farming* m the nrwnpany diminished. 

- Continental European economists such as Mi- 
chel AIbert,f ormer chairman of French insurer 
Assurances GSnfcrales de France and now an 
advisor to the Basque de France on monetary 
policy, claim that devaluation usually badefires 
because companies simply increase their payouts 
to shareholders, rather than ploughing the mon- 
ey bade into, the business. 

While devaluation may not necessarily have 
been goorinews for the long term health of the 
British economy, it certainly came as a relief to 
investors' in equity income funds. The biggest 
he nefimmeg , ray analysts, have been those in- 
come funds that took the hardest pounding bc- 
f orethe devaloationof sterling. 

• • H £Edierjpdds denote lower perceived quah- 
. ty, M smd the directors <rf Fund Research in a 

recent report focusing era equity income funds. 
“The performance of UJC. equity trusts over the. 
past year may be captioned as a flight from’ 
- quality — the top performing funds in the past 
■ year have been those already exposed to lower 
quality recovery stocks prior to SteriingVexit 
from the ERM. ” 

Mr. Glaze tempered his optimism with cau- 
tion. “Qan’t expect strong growth just because 
companies are. budding up dividend cover 
again,” , he warned. “But it is all leading to a 
turner base, income funds are getting back on 
trade after going through the mOL ” 

- Income fund managers are continuing to turn 
their attention to second-line stocks that are 
expected to be the next beneficiaries of economic 
recovery. Andrew Burdis, fund manager at Gart- 
more investments in London, said his company’s 
funds will be increasing their exposure to small 
companies over the next six months. 

Mr. Coriess agreed. He too wffl be focusing on 
gmaTlw companies and on what have previously 
been the poorer quality stocks, including banks 
and -bttOmng material companies. “All three of 
our -funds are . increasing their non-FT-SE 
wrightings, ” he said. “These companies should 

London brokerage Barclays de 
Zoete Wedd, who insisted on 
anonymity. “Past, experience 
has shown that high dividend 
payers tend to fare better than 
non-dividend payers during a 
crisis, as the presence of divi- 
dends cushio ns the stock from 
dramatic price falls." 

The classic argument against 
a progressive dividends policy 
is that it prevents company dr- 

ill the absence of 
growth, dividend 
yield becomes the 
single most 
component of a 
stock’s value. 

yield,” said Andrew Bell, a 
strategist at BZW in London. 
“The share price is unlikely to 
rise on the strength of higher 
camingc done. For that to hap- 
pen, dividend payments must 
also increase.” 

In the absence of growth, 
however, dividend yield be- 
comes the single most impor- 
tant component of a stock’s val- 
ue. Some analysts say it is 
essential to check that the stock 
wfll continue to pay dividends 
regardless of the economic situ- 
ation. Otherwise, one could be 
left holding a slow grower with 
little going for it 

Also, if you are buying a stock 
on the strength of its yield, it is 
not enough to compare the cur- 

rent yield to the market average. 
Historic yield patterns should 
also be considered. 

“If a stock is yielding 3 to 4 
percent and the average yield in 
the market is 2 percent, inves- 
tors may be tempted to buy it,” 
said Joe Rooney, an investment 
strategist at Lehman Brothers 
in London. “However, if the 
stock normally yields 5 to 6 per- 
cent, it should be investigated 
further. A lower- than-nonnal 
yield is really only acceptable if 
the company’s growth pros- 
pects are good.” 

Fast growers also tend to 
have high price-earnings ratios. 
The P/E multiple shows the re- 
lationship between a company’s 
stock price and its earnings-per- 

share, and is typically used as a 
measure of growth potential. 
When markets are in a growth 
phase, P/E ratio often sup- 
plants dividend yield as the 
most important factor in calcu- 
lating value. 

Dividend yields are getting 
all the attention aL the moment, 
however, because of lower in- 
terest rates in Europe. “When 
one considers that average de- 
posit rates are around 3 to 4 
percent and that the dividend 
yield on some stocks is around 5 
or 6 percent, it is not surprising 
that investors are concentrating 
an dividend plays,” said the 
BZW analyst. 

High-yielding stocks can be 
found in the European financial 

sector, particularly banking, ac- 
cording to Marcus Grubb, a 
strategist with Salomon Broth- 
ers in London. “These stocks 
have fallen more than others so 
they are yielding a premium,” 
he said. 

Analysts also say there is lit- 
tle doubt that the stage of mar- 
ket development has an impact 
on the overall yield. More ma- 
ture markets tend to trade on 
higher yields compared to 
growth markets. 

“Dividend yield is virtually ig- 
nored by Japanese investors, 
who prefer to measure a stock’s 
value by its P/E ratio " said Yu- 
iaka Sugjyama, director of re- 
search for UBS Phillips & Drew 
in Tokyo. “The fact that the Jap- 
anese economy was growing at 
twice the rate of the UJS. econo- 
my during the 1980’s partly ex- 
plains the importance attached 
to P/E multiples and the lack of 
interest in dividend yields. 

“But it does not explain why 
the P/Es ratios are so high,” 
continued Mr. Sugjyama. “The 
average Japanese P/E for 1994 
is around 60. Corporate earn- 
ings will have to improve dra- 
matically in the near future to 
justify these exceptionally high 

The importance attached to 
dividend yields is likely to less- 
en as interest rates start to rise. 
However, this may not be for at 
least another six to eight 
months, say many market ob- 
servers. In the meantime, high- 
yielding stocks will continue to 
be attractive.

rectors from taking a long-term

Roger Barker, an equity

UBS Phillips & Drew com- 
mented: “Small, dynamic com-

However, company directors 
have a nasty habit of blowing

Mr. Barker continued, “jt can ,

Whatever the market or sec- 
tor, stocks will generally trade 
I on lower yields if they have a 
. favorable growth profile. Some 
I investors are prepared to accept 
tradeoff between dividend 
yield and capital grins. “In 
markets with high participation 
by retail investors, some may be 
indifferent to the way in which 
they receive their reward — by 
capital grins or by income,” 
said Marcus Rosgen, an inter- 
national equities strategist with 
SG Warburg Securities in Lon-

however, tend to prefer income 
to capital gains. Hence, the

sists largely of “momentum jplayexs,” 
traders who like to buy companies whose 
earnings charts trace out a sharp, steady 

r aid slope. As soon as the slope heads 
other way, or even continues to rise 
less steeply, they sefl and move on to 
something dse. 

Why are they so quick to leap off the 
bandwagon? For the same reason, often 
suspected but not so often articulated, 
that many on Wall Street make the deri- 
sions they do: They simply don't know 
what they’re doing. 

“These businesses are very complex," 
said Paul Svetz, an equity analyst for tech- 
nology companies at the Scudder fund 
management company. “Because it's such 
an opportunistic area — such an attractive 
area growing so fast —people tend to pay 
high premiums for these stocks- You’re 
willing to pay a big premium up front for 
this outstanding performance, but at the 
first sign of disappointment, those inves- 
tors who perhaps don't have a dear pic- 
ture of the industry and iheTmsiness asso- 
ciated with it may amply abandon the 
stock. Most people would not understand 

how a multiple-protocol router works, but 
it’s a $2 billion market." 

For those who do know that a router is a 
type of networking system, earnings that 
fall short of forecasts can be taken as a 
sign that not all is right with a company. 

“Earnings expectations have been fine- 
ly honed to reflect a company’s business 
opportunities," said Neil Weintraub, a se- 
nior technology analyst at Hambrecht & 
Quist “When they fall short of those ex- 
pectations, it’s a leading indicator that 
there are some issues or problems that 
need to be addressed. Certainly it's not 
always the case that when a company 
comes in light, there are broad ftmdarnen- 
tal problems. But it indicates some issue 
out there and that's the way the markets 
have evolved to work.” 

The issue in the networking business is 
an increase in competition between mak- 
ers of routers, such as Cisco, and of rival 
systems called intelligent hubs, Mr. Par- 
melee said. It will take several years for the 

battle to be played out in the meantime, 
"demand for networking equipment con- 
tinues to be very strong,” and sentiment is 
negative enough that there is little room 
for further disappointment. 

As for Xilinx, Charles Boucher, who 
follows the company for Hambrecht & 
Quist, said the present quarter may disap- 
point, but looking funner out, the market 
may be underestimating its prospects. 

“Xilinx is an excellent company that 
delivers generally solid financial perfor- 
mance,” Mr. Boucher observed. “The 
business they participate in is a very high- 
growth business and they are the market 
leader." There is every chance that the 
fourth quarter could offer a positive sur- 
prise to match the recent negative one. 

It's tough staying on top quarter after 
quarter, but companies, especially in high 
technology, go out of their way to make 
the effort. Mr. Weintraub said it is com- 
mon practice to make a purchase from a 

Earnings Always Mean Higher Dividends? briefcase

By Djgjg lamer 

I NVESTORS looking for income 
from equities have had a rough ride 
in recent years. In Europe, especial- 
ly, where the recession has taken a 
heavy: toll on corporate earnings, share 
dividends have been badfy’ilrL 
Bnt some analysts now believe that 
many businesses have turned the corner. 
With recovery prospects looking better 
than expected, corporate earning? are 
cWring out of the red.

lysts, is to spot where earning ? are most 
likely tpjrow and whether or not iheywfll 

translate turn larger rfryfdrndff flnmpTjpn f- 

ing that endeavor is the fact that the im- 
pact of earnings an dividends often varies 
between countries and sectors, as well as 
between corporations., 

Roger Barker, an eqirity'^irategist with 
UBS FbalEps & Drew in London, said that 
British corpor a tions, for example, tradi- 
tionally pass on a higher proportion of 
earnings to shareholders than those in oth- 
er. European countries. 

“Hus has, a lot to do with the structure 
of share ownership in Britain,” he said. 
“Large pension funds and insurance cam- 
pames are often major shareholders in big 
businesses. They have an interest in put- 
ting pressure oil companies to . pay out 
higher dividends. 

“In countries like Germany, on the oth- 
er hand, ther e is more cross- shareholding 
between companies and banks,” Mr. Bark-

there is less pressure from shareholders for 

While this makes British stocks a likely

question mark hangs over how much iong- 
er this difference wiQlasL High payouts m 
Britain have attracted the unwelcome at- 
tention of tbe cotm try’s government and 
opposition parties. 

Stephen DoireB, a junior Treasury min- 
ister, has gone on the record as saying that 
high dividends are drawing corporate 
earnings away from much- needed invest- 
ment programs. 

The industry spokesman for Britain's 
opposition Labor Party, Robin Cook, has 
pubfidy expressed the same view, and has 
gone further by hinting that a future Labor 
government would impose limits on the 
level of dividends corporations can pay. 

Although management groups are lob- 
bying hmd to persuade politicians that this 
view is misguided, the possibility of future 
limits on dividend payments in Britain 
cannot be entirely discounted yet. 

Among individual stocks, there is no 
guarantee that higher income growth nec- 
essarily means a higher payout for share- 
holders. Logically, they should go hand in 
hand, bnt much depends on how each 
corporation faired during the recession. 

Nicholas Wilson, an analyst with No- 
mura Research in London, says that while 
some businesses reduced dividends when 
earnings fell, others tried to maintain them 
at existing levels. 

“Those who cut dividends early and who 
are now seeing earnings pick up will be 

able to push up dividends soon," he said. 
“Unfortunately, the ones who continued 
paying out at the same level throughout 
the recession have seen their dividend cov- 
er badly eroded.” 

Dividends are also being held back by 
concerns among corporate chiefs that the 
recovery is weaker than some market ana- 
lysts believe. Figures from the investment 
manager J.p. Morgan show that predicted 
flaming ? growth figures across Europe for 
the rest of 1994 are way ahead of dividends 
in most coumries. 

The biggest discrepancy between the 
two figures is in Germany and France. 
Earnings in Germany are expected to grow 
by a massiv e 42 percent this year while 
dividends are set to increase by only 6 per 
cent In France the figure is 36 percent 
earnings versus 6 percent dividends. 

This is partly a reflection of how badly 
hit both countries were by the recession. 
Confidence remains shaky and corpora- 
tions need to see further evidence of the 
recovery taking hold before earnings are 
translated into significantly higher divi- 

Barry Woolf, investment director at 
Mercury fund managers in London, says 
that although there is evidence of sus- 
tained growth is earnings, the turnaround 
is too recent to have an immediate effect 
an dividends. 

So, even as earnings forecasts improve, 
income investors may have to wait until 
early 1995 before they see dividends re- 
turning to the levels of growth which they 
enjoyed before the recession hit home. 

MFS to Launch New Fund 

Massachusetts Financial Services is 
launching the MFS World Asset Alloca- 
tion Fund, which will divide shareholders* 
money among five investment categories: 
U.S. and foreign stocks, U.S. high-yield 
and investment-grade bonds, and foreign 

The allocation will be determined by 
the company’s senior investment officers 
and researchers at meetings held monthly, 
or more often if market conditions war- 
rant, MFS said in a statement announcing 
the fund’s inauguration. Once the alloca- 
tion has been set, managers in charge of 
each sector will figure out which individ- 
ual securities to buy. 

The fund, which wd begin doing busi- 
ness July 22, will be issued in three classes, 
each with a different charging structure. 

Prospective buyers should study the 
prospectus carefully and then ruminate 
long and bard to determine which class, if 
any, is right for them. 

The minimum initial investment for all 
classes is 51,000. 

An Emerging Markets Twist 

Does the world really need another 
emerging markets fund? Robertson, Ste- 
phens & Co., the San Francisco invest- 
ment group, thinks so — as long as it has a 
unique twist 

The firm has just launched a fund which 
it claims win profit from both the ups and 
downs of the notoriously volatile emerg- 
ing markets. 

supplier near the end of the quarter be- 
cause the supplier wfl] offer the best deal 
possible to try to seal the deal and boost 
the revenue it can report for that period. 

The emphasis on short-term results 
“can induce companies to try to cut costs 
at the expense of long-term paybacks," he 
added, “if we think a company is underin- 
vesting, well factor that into our projec- 

While such mortgaging of the corporate 
future may scon unhealthy, Mr. Sveiz 
advised that a heavy price can be paid for 
failing to secure the good will of Wall 

“Share prices are very important to 
their ability to raise capital and in their 
ability to reward employees," he pointed 

While the IBMs of the world can pay 
cash for the best staff, smaller companies 
rely on packages laden with stock options, 
the value of which appreciates, often dra- 
matically, as shares grow in value. 

To play the downside, fund manager 
Michael Hoffman will allocate up to 25 
percent of his cash to “short" selling in 
markets which be views as riding for a fall. 
He'D sell borrowed shares of companies in 
those countries, or of funds which target 
those countries. 

Thou if their prices fall as anticipated, 
he will profit by buying the shares back at 
lower prices to return to the lenders. 
(Since short selling is forbidden in most 
emerging markets, Mr. Hoffman will bor- 
row shares of companies and funds which 
are listed outside their home market For 
example: a country fund listed on the New 
Yak Stock Exchange). 

Mr. Hoffman’s top “short” candidate is 
Brazil, where he believes leftist Luis Lna- 
do da Silva is heading for a win in the 
October Presidential elections, sending 
the market into a taflspio. 

On the upside. Mr. Hoffman favors 
Korea, where he anticipates economic 
growth of a healthy 7 percent this year. He 
owns companies like Samsung Electronics 
and Hyundai, the auto maker. 

He is also belting on Mexico, where he 
predicts that the ruling party will win the 
August presidential elections. 

Initial investment in the no-load, open- 
end Robertson Stephens Emerging Mar- 
kets fund is 55,000. For more information,

As standards of Hying continue to rise across the globe, it makes sense to invest in the basic facilities that underpin 
growing economies - key companies providing services such as gas. telecommunications, water and electricity Its 
these which the Templeton Utilities fund targets, aiming to provide a combination excellent long-term returns and 
relatively low risk. The economic environment now looks ideal with low inflation, low interest races and increasing 
privatisation in the emerging economies of Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Far East. Which means the demand 
for utilities is likely to grow steadily and strong, perfect for a capital growth hind. And of course, the fund is managed

3 Close Races 
Light Up Skies 
For AL Playoffs 

•- i. *>{. 


The Associated Pros 

Halfway to the expanded 
playoffs, the American League 
has three pretty decent-looking 
divisional races. 

The Cleveland Indians be- 
came the last AL team to play 
its 81st game Thursday, losing 


to the Texas Rangers, 6-4, in a 
contest between first-place 


Texas maintained its three- 
game lead over Oakland in the 
West while Cleveland had its 
Central lead cut to one game 
over Chicago. 

“It would be nice to be in 
their division, but first place in 
any division is still first placed' 
Said the Indians’ manager Mike 
Hargrove, a Ranger from 1974- 
78. U I played here for a long 
time and I know if there’s a 
pennant flying in Texas, this 
place will go crazy, just like it 
will in Cleveland." 

In the AL East New York 
increased its lead over Balti- 
more to 1V4 games by beating 
California while the Orioles 
were losing to the A’s. 

No team has been able to 
coast this season, but the Yan- 
kees have been in first longer 
than the In dians or Rangers. 

New York moved into first 
on May 9 and has been there for 
the past 60 days. Cleveland has 
been in front of Chicago for 27 
days and the Texas has held 
first for 39 days. 

The Rangers kept their ad- 
vantage at three games over 
Oakland by getting getting two 
home runs from Dean P alm er. 
His two-run shot in the fourth 
tied the score at 2 and his long 
three-run blast in the fifth put 
the Rangers ahead to stay, 6-3. 

It was Palmer’s third two- 
homer game since June 18. 
Since then, he's had 1 1 homers, 
giving him 17 for the season. 
His batting average also has 
skyrocketed, going from .229 on 
June 24 to .268 following 
Thursday’s 3-for-4 game. 

became the first 13-game win- 
ner in the AL. 

Key allowed six hits in seven 
innings , with Bob Wickman 
and Steve Howe finishing up. 

Two-out singles by Wade 
Bo gg s and Danny Tartabull 
drove in two runs in the seventh 
inning , breaking a 2-2 tie. Ran- 
dy Velarde had a homer and 
pinch-hitter Paul O’Neill drove 
in the final run with a single, 
upping his average to 381. 

Athletics 6, Orioles 4: Geron- 
imo Berroa singled in two runs 
to cap a three-run sixth that 
continued Oakland’s winning 
streak and ended host Balti- 
more’s at four games. 

Scott Brosius had three hits 
and scored twice for the A’s, 
who have won five straight and 
13 of 14. 

The Orioles’ Mark Eichhom 
had bis 20% scoreless inning 
streak ended and took the loss. 

White Sox 9, Tigers 5: Robin 
Ventura broke out of a 2-for-23 
skid with a leadoff double that 
triggered a four-run second in 
Detroit and later homered as 
Chicago won for the 15th time 
in 19 games. 

Detroit's rookie shortstop 
Chris Gomez, who had driven 
in only one run since June 27, 
got four hits and three RBIs; he 
nas driven in 47 runs with his 62 
hits, all in only 221 at-bats.

Carl Yastzzansld -• •' - ril 

or At Kalin e. I™*® JCTO 
What defines lUp- .. _ iiHa 

ken, and makes : — 

him one of the greatest players ever, is bis de- 
fense. Except for Ozzte<Smftn, Ripken is the best . 
defensive shortstop of h& era. 

There, I’ve finally Safa it. After 1,968 games at 
shortstop, the case for Ripken’s defensive prow- 
ess is overwhelming. 

Fact Of active shortstops, Ripken makes the 
most double plays per game. Gray one current 
player, Dick Schofidd,js close tohim.The gaudy 
acrobats of the position, such as Smith and Ozzie 
Guillen, are not. In Us career, Ripken has aver- 
aged 110 double plays in 162 games a year. 
Thafs 10 a season more than either of the dizzies 
and 25 more than many shortstops. This season, 
Ripken is on pace to lead the league in double 
plays for the seventh rime, which would be the 
ma|or league record. 

Fact: Of all active shortstops, Ripkeaisseo- . 
and in efficiency at turnin g .ground balls into . 
outs: 3.07 assists per game for his career. Smith, " 
the Wizard of Oz, readies nearly 50 more ground- 
ers a year than anybody else (336 assists per 
game). That’s an.enonribus rap, but then he’s the 
consensus Greatest Ever. What’s shocking is that, 
over his career, Ripken edges, out those other swift 
players famous for their range: Barry. Larkin 
(3.05), Guffien (3.04), Tony Fernandez (2J91). 

How can a slower, less spectacular Odder - 
make more plays? Ripkeustudies hitters faztari- . 
cally. “Cal knows everything about everybody,’’ ' 
says catdier Chris Hones. “And he’s wfflrng to 
gamble, even though he gets burned at times.” . 

Also, Ripken uses the old trick of “cheating” 
on many pitches. Since Ripken knows whether 
the pitch wfll be fast or slow; made or out, he 
leans toward where the ban is likely to be hit, __ 
giving him a jump. That, pins a great first step, 
lets him materialize suddenly to make “routine” 
plays on balls that, when they left the bat, looked ' 
like Mts. This also takes a gambler’s courage and. 

occasionally, Ripken crosseshimsdfup sotadty 

while he seems vapor-locked, fuddn? 

reaSmote balls than anybody but the “v 

pounds* the 1 biggest drortstop ever, he’s had to 
reinvent lots dffi 

t hing, batlhad no doc. five or sixyeaxs 
something would dick and I’d say, That’s whm 
he meant' For example, you re taught to take the 
Kali to your backhand side off your left leg 
that is. withyour left leg extended toward the 
catch. “You can reach the farthest that way and 
you only need to take one jab step withyour right 
lea to stop your momentum and then throw, if 
you take the b a c kh and off the right leg. you need 
two steps to come under control and throw. 

“Belanger told me, ’At the -major league level, 
you have to know who’s at bat because taking the 
backhand the “correct” way — off the left foot 
—won’t wo* with* speedy runner. You have to 
stop your momentum before yon get to the ball, 
lav?, the backhand off the right leg and throw in 
the sana motion with no steps at alL’ - 
- “Of course, if you do that, you have to put on 
the brakes sooner and you have a tittle less range. 
Sometimes, yim won't quite be able to reach the 
baflu That locks bad.. Your instinct is always, to/ 
get to the balL Belanger said, ‘If you get the ball , 
but can’t throw out the man, where is the play?' ” 

Ripken never stops Teaming. “The last couple 
of years. I’ve moved a step or two closer to the 
hitters to increase my range,” he says. 


“Range is tike a cone. If you map a trajectory 
of the balls toward your position. It’d look Eke a 
crate. As you move fanner from the hitter, that 
cose gets wider and wider. 

“If yon move closer, you narrow the cone, just

if you read the angle of the ball off the tot well, if 
you’re qnick enough with your first step and your 
haads to cope with the bail getting oirtop of you 
a Hide faster.” . 

Those, 'of course, are exactly Ripken's

Call Off Monza Grand Prix 

Compiled bf Our StaffFrom Dispatches 

ROME — The Italian Alrtomohflc 
Chib said Friday it had called off the 
Italian Grand Enx, scheduled for Sep- 
tember in Monza, because oS what it 
said are inadequate safety measures. 

A spokesman for (he International 
Automobile Federation, the sport's 
governing body, said the federation 

has riHtimme resp onsib ility for wheth- 
er a Grand Prix takes place. But, add- 
ed the spokesman, Martin 'Whitaker, 
if the “national governing body re- 
fuses to license an event, then obvi- 
ously it cannot, go ahead.” -

deaths of Ayrton Senna and Roland

Marco Piccanini, the head of motor 
sports in Italy, said that new security 
measures proposed by FIA were in- 
adequate. Piaanini said all Grand 
Prix events in Italy had been sus- 

pended for the remainder of the year. 

“If in September a grave accident 
occurs, public opinion and the au- 
thorities of our country would not be 
able to fathom bow a Grand Prix 
could have taken place when FIA 
made less stringent security measures 
than h had already proposed for

HOUSTON— Aoroed to terms wltti Bratl 

England’s Yates Takes 
Lead as LeMond Quits 

By Samuel Abt 

International Herald Tribune 

RENNES, France — Greg 
LeMond reached the end of the 
road Friday in the Tour de 
France, and possibly the end of 
his glorious career. 

LeMond. the finest bicycle 
road racer ever produced by the 
United States, dropped out of 
the Tour, exhausted, on a small 
hiU, the C6te des Loges-Mar- 
chxs, during the sixth daily stage 
of the three-week race. Tbe fin- 
ish «me at Kilometer 183 (Mile 
113) of the 2703-kilometer 
(168-mile) ride from Cherbourg 
to Rennes. 

The t hree - tim e whiner of the 
Tour, now reduced at age 33 to a 
struggling support rider for his 
Gan had dropped behind 
an ibechzsb. Part of the way up, 
be dropped out of the race. 

“Just one hill too many,” he 
said later at his hotel as he 
to leave for his home in 
jium on Friday night- “I just 
ran out of juice.” 

His abandonment was only 
one shock Friday. 

Another was a change in the 
wearer of the yellow jersey, the 
symbol of overall leadership in 
the Tour. The new man wearing 
it was Sean Yates, 34, an Eng- 
lish rider for the Motorola team 
based in the United Stales. 

Yates finished sixth, two sec- 
onds behind the stage winner, 
Gianluca Bortolami, an Italian 
with the Mapd-Oas team. Bor- 
to lami was part of a seven-man 
breakaway and sped away from 

yellow jersey before. He is a 
team worker, an engine in 
chases after opponents and the 
finest descender from climbs in 
the pack. He is also the room- 
mate and mentor of Lance 
Armstrong, the 22-year-old 
American who is the world 
road-race champion. 

Yates’s triumph was wel- 
comed by his Motorola team- 
mates and officials- Weakened 

strongest climber, in a 
training accident bdbre the Tour 
and the inability of Armstrong to 
get free far a- stage victory so far, 
the Motorola riders have been 
looking far a boost. 

They got it on what was jok- 
ingly referred to as the Tour’s 
Longest Day” — both because 

Ludwig, a German with the Te- 
lekom team from bis native 

LeMond was stiH in the pack 
at that point and lasted two 
hours longer. 

Only Friday morning, after 
the two disastrous stages in Eng- 
land in which he lost more than 
right minutes over rolling and 
undemanding terrain, he said 
that he continued to suffer from 
chronic and unexplained fatigue. 

“I have to say my patience is 
very thin right now,” he said in 
a recent interview. *Tm on the 
verge of Tf I don't have a good 
race now, Tm going to stop.* 

“People say in hindsight.

from Cherbourg in Normandy 
to Rennes in Brittany, the riders 
wheeled past Utah Beach, 
where U.S. troops landed, and 
through Ste.-Mfcre-Eglise, the 
first town liberated from the 
German invaders. 

Then the riders competed in 
a special D-Day Sprint in the 
city of SL L6, from which Allied 
troops brake out to begin their

After his Tour victories in 
1986, 1989 and 1990 and the 
world road-race championship 
in 1989 : he finished seventh in 
the Tour in 1991, quit in 1992 
and did not start in 1993. He 
has not wen a race since 1992 
but, even if he never wins one

Second was Djamofidine Ab- 
doujaparov, an Uzbek with 
Polti, and third was Beat Zberg, 
a Swiss with Carrera. The main 
pack, including the previous 
man in yellow, Flavio vanzeila, 
an Italian with GB-MG, fin- 
ished 46 seconds behind after a 
disorganized chase of the 

Baitolans, who trails Yates by 
one second for the leadership, 
was timed in 6 hours, 58 min- 
utes, 47 seconds. That made for 
a slow stage in cool and windy 
weather brfore a far turnout of 
spectators as the Tour returned 
to the mother country after two 
days in England 

“You can’t choose where 
you’ll win the yellow jersey,” 
joked Yates, who rode close by 
his home in southern England 
and stopped to greet his parents 
on Wednesday. 

Overshadowed in this Tour 
by the other Englishman in the 
pack, Chris Boardman, who 
won the yellow jersey in the 
prologue last weekend and wore 
it three days, Yates took some 
revenge as he celebrated. 

Tm every big a name in 
and as Boardman,” he said 


In 13 years as a professional 
racer, Yates has never worn the 

Agence France- Prose 

is struggling and Andre Agassi 
sees hims elf as the man to help 
fix it. 

“Something needs to hap- 
pen," Agassi said on Thursday 
during a news conference. “The 
interest level seems to have 
dropped. Too many points are 
too short- It’s boring We’re not 
seeing every element of the 
game. We're only seeing big 
serves and returns.” 

Fundemental changes were 
advanced by Agassi, surii as re- 
quiring players to use wooden 
rackets, moving the service area 
closer to the net and banning 
serves over 115 mph (185 kmp). 

“I don’t know what the an- 
swer is,” Agassi said. “I think 
getting everybody thinking in 
that direction is the right idea.” 

More matches between the 
ATP Tour s cap players was an- 
other suggestion. Agassi said 
nearly two years had separated 
his two most recent matches 
against Boris Becker — at Wim- 
bledon in 1992 and Key Bis- 
cayne earlier this year. 

* "We have to do something 
with the Tour, something the 
public can understand, a plat- 
form where the players can 

meet each other more often,” 

‘In order to have a rivalry, 
you have to play four to six 
times a year,” he added. “But 
there are so many tournaments 
oat there now, you can go a 
whole year and not play some- 
body. It’s a shame." 

Agassi, No. 20 in the world, 
wants to heat up his rivalry with 
Pete Sampras, the No. 1 player 
and winner of four of the past 
five Grand Slam events. 

“1 thmk the rivalry would be 
exciting,” Agassi said. “I don’t 
care what my ranking is. Rival- 
ries are what make sports. 
That’s why tennis is suffering 
right now. To be part of a rival- 
ry that revitalizes the game 
would be more of an accom- 
plishment than going down in 
the record book Tor results." 

Agassi criticized Sampras 
and Jim Courier, who will play 
singles for the United States in 
its Davis Cup match against the 
Netherlands next week. 

“They have not had great 
wins in Davis Cup,” Agassi 
said *Tve seen Pete and Jim gel 
a little tentative in the past, but 
I would be a little quick to be- 
lieve they won't go out and do 
the job.”

PARIS — Controversy continued to follow Mary Pierce this 
week when her French teammates Nathalie Tauziat and Julie 
Halard threatened to withdraw from the Federation Cup finals in 
Frankfurt in a dispute over a bonus payment being made to 

Tauziat and Halard complained that Pierce would receive 
200,000 francs ($37,000) for appearing in the event and said that 
all players on the French team should receive equal treatment. 

The team’s captain, Fran^oise Durr, said that Pierce had not 
requested any extra payments for competingin the event. But she

null out of the U.S. Open last federation, Christian Bimes, had promised the payment to any 
y player on the team who was ranked in the top 10. Pierce is 

currently ranked No. 8. 

“Obviously 1 would greatly regret any decision by Nathalie and 
JuHe not to play.” said Durr. “But if they don’t want to compete 
there’s not much I can do about it.” She said that if Tauziat and 
Halard did not play, she would rail up Alexandra Fusai. Karine 
Qu entree and Sandrine Testud to join Pierce on the team. 

Last year. Pierce was dropped from the Federation Cup team 
for f ailin g to attend a training session. Despite her absence, the 
team reached the semifinals.

Europe’s Surprising Challenge to the Latin Game 

f/iunutkml Herald Tribune 

S AN FRANCISCO — In the playground of 
children, anything can happen. Here in the 
United States, where soccer remains predomi- 
nantly child’s play, nature is taking a beating. 

We imagined the heat and humidity would sap 
the European 

game. We ex- Bnh gf . 

pected the Lat- E®** Wj 

ms to come good Hu 9" es 1 
while Europeans 

wilted. We thought history would prevail and 
preserve the status quo of no European World 
Cup winner this side of the Atlantic. 

And what happens? Seven of the last eight are 
Europeans. Only Brazil can defend the Latin 
reputation now; only Brazil can keep the faith of 
a continent that still nurtures so many individual 

What tilts soccer against nature? It has much 
to do with bee trade and world economics. 

Just as some Latin American nations grow 
cocaine for export, so the continent sells soccer 
talent. Poverty traps in Argentina. Bolivia, Bra- 
zil, Colombia, Uruguay and so on are fertile 
grounds where talent rises under the sun. where 
boys often have tittle alternative but to play all 
day and a great thirst to escape. 

Too many are sold before their schooling is 
complete. They live and work under European 
conditions, they become accustomed to being 
exotic exceptions in hard-working European 

When it comes to World Cups, when they 
return so fleetingly to their national cause, there 
is precious little time for coaches to persuade 
some of them to be workers, some to be stars. 

Brazil is searching for the blend. It has the 
forwards, RomArio and Bebeto, to win any con- 
test in the Hick of an eye. It has work horses such 
as Dunga. It has reasoanble solidity in defense. 

B UT THE search for a leader, for a playmaker 
to maintain the rhythm and beat of Brazilian 
style, is not yet convincing. Rai, the tall, angular 
midfielder, could yet be the catalyst, but he does 
not have the confidence or consistency that his 
older brother. Socrates, gave Brazil. 

Rai drifts. IBs year in Paris has been inconsis- 
tent and without consistency, Brazil is having to 
experiment, to feel its way from match to match. 

1 think, nevertheless, that Brazil will beat Hol- 
land in the hot house of Dallas on Saturday. The 
Dutch have slowly got it together under the 
promptings of Coach Dick AdvocaaL 
But slowness in the Dutch defense, quickness 
in the Brazilian attack, is the key. Romano 
versus Ronald Koeman, club colleagues at Bar- 
celona, is a pivotal duel, and whatever Advocaat 
devises to prevent his cumbersome captain from 
being exposed one-on-one to RomArio's quicksil- 
ver pace, it will sooner or later happen. 

Romirio is like a sniper. He can finish the job 
with a single shot. Brazil relies on him, and on 
Bebeto, who also plays club soccer in Spain, to 
provide the Latin continuation. 

Strangely enough, the Iberian challenge at this 
World Cup has less Latin flavor than we asso- 
ciate with Spain. Coach Javier Clemente is a 
Basque, as is the nucleus of his team, and the 
Basques are fighters. 

So when Italy meets Spain in Boston on Satur- 
day, the Italians had better be prepared for a 

contest at least as draining as its last, fortunate 
encounter with Nigeria. 

The African champion betrayed itself, at- 
tempting to sit on an early lead and to play the 
Italians at their own defensive game. Roberto 
Baggio, almost a single inspiration in a neurotic 
Italian side, saved that game in the last mbmentsi 

Yet Baggio and Italy's coach, Anigo SacchT 
seem as distant as their hairstyles are different; 
Baggio sports a pony tail Saccfai is bald. Italy's 
tradition tells us that once it turns a comer of self 
doubt, it wins major trophies. But Spain, attack- 
ing down the wings more than any other team at 
this World Cup, might outfight and outlast Italy. 

Talk of fighting soccer and you get Bulgaria' 
versus Germany in New Jersey on Sunday. This 
will not be for the pnrist. 

Germany began its defense of the World Cup 
in grinding rather than convincing fashion. It 
suffered badly in the one game that it played In 
the midday southern heat, but, as Germans do, 
the players dug deep into reserves Of tenacity. 

I still doubt Lothar MattMus’s capacity to 
switch from midfield to defensive sweeper. But 
against Belgium in Chicago, on a. day when the . 
temperature dropped nearly to European levels, 
Jflrgen Klinsmann and Rudi VOfler came 

TV 7HATEYER it is, it must be a fine elixir that 
W VODer takes. He is 34, he is out of retire- 
ment, he moves with the stealth of a Faginin the 
penalty box. And the two goals he struck against . 
Belgium make him second only to Gerd Muller 
as Germany's all-time scorer. 

Having benefitted in that match from a gross 
refereeing error, which denied a Belgian penalty. 

Germany has characteristically obtained two

Brazil vs. Dutch: Game Fit for the Final 

Reuters Vtdual 

DALLAS — Brazil and the Netherlands true al 
are promising a classic encounter of at- The 
tacking football when they clash Saturday berth, 
in the 1994 World Cup’s most glamourous with r 
quarterfinal. in the 

Both sides want to produce a confronta- ju e 
tion fit for the final in a game they say the 
whole world will be watering. wjlen , 

“This has everything to be one of the best j oban 
games of the tournament,” said Brazil’s dinr-h 
coach, Carlos Alberto Parreira. “From what 
I’ve seen of the Dutch, I know they will ““ 
attack BraziL That will put us more at risk ^' est 
but it will also give us more space to play.” f' ranz 
The Dutch coach, Dick Advocaat. said 
-there would be little variation from the ^ 
side that beat Ireland, 2-0, in the second On 
round with a display that has given the young 
Dutch players renewed confidence in their marks 
ability to win the World Cup. kamp, 

“This is gang to be a fascinating game Ove 
because of the two types of styles.” said the wc 
AdvocaaL “The Dutch play a game that Irclam 
involves players combining on the way to pose ; 
goal. Brazil depends a lot on individual begun 
skills.” goals 1 

“Brazil has a good team with great indi- Pan 

vidual players,” he added, “but the same is 
true about the Dutch team.” 

The key to victory, and a semifinal 
berth, lies in how well the defense can cope 
with two erf the most talented strike forces 
in the world. 

The only previous World Cup encounter 
between the two countries was in 1974, 
when the Netherlands won 2-0, on goals by 
Johan Cruyff and Johan Neeskens, to 
clinch a place in the final. 

The Netherlands, led by Cruyff, lost to 
West Germany, the host, which was led by 
Franz Beckenbauer. The Dutch have been 
haunted since by the tag that the squad was 
the finest team never to win a World Cup. 

On Saturday, the Dutch will rely on two 
young players who have yet to make their 
marks on the world stage: Dennis Berg- 
kamp, 23, and Marc Overman, 21. 

Overmars, possibly the fastest winger in 
the world, set up the opening goal against 
Ireland and his pace on the right is likely to 
pose problems for BraziL Bergkamp has 
begun to find his scoring touch, with two 
goals the last two games. 

Parreira is debating whether to use the 

former Genoa and Porto player Branco or 
Cafu to replace the suspended defender 

Neither is a satisfactory solution, espe- 
cially considering the Dutch speed on the 
right flank, and Branco, who has not been 
in top form in the last year, has played only 
half a game since late May. 

But it could be the skills of Romirio and 
Bebeto at the other end that decide the 
quarterfinal. They have five goals between 
them, and have sliced open defenses with 

thflr vifflOn, Hurting nm< snH passing. 

The veteran Dutch international Frank 
Rijkaard, who will have thejob of stopping 
them, regards RomArio, a former rev 
Eindhoven striker who is now with Barce- 
lona, as the greatest player in the world. 

“We are all going to have to produce 
great performances to beat Brazil,” ne said. 

Although P arr e ira gives the Dutch due 
respect, he does not doubt die outcome. 

“They are a very well-balanced team, 
they have a great leader and inspiration in 
Ronald Koeman.” he said. “But Fm only 

thinking of winning . We’re almsHy making 

arrangements to go to Los Angeles.”

No Fear lor Sweden: They’re Unbeatable 

The Atsodmtd Press . . . 

MORAGA, California — Before the 

reach the final match. One of the optimists 
was Klas Ingesson, and he is still standing 
by his prediction. 

“We can beat all the teams that are left 
in the tournament," Ingesson said before 
Sweden's quarterfinal match against Ro- 
mania at Stanford Stadium on Sunday. 

Referring to a first-round match, he 
added, “Tying Brazil gave us so much 

Even without the striker Martin Dahlin, 
who has four goals in the World Cup but 
was suspended for accumujtated yellow 
cards, Sweden took a 1-0 halftime lead 
against Brazil on Kennet Anderson’s goal. 

Sweden became Nordic champ ions in 
early June, finishing ahead of Itaunaxk, * 
die European champion, and Norway, 
which also played in die World Cup. Can 
the Swedes become worid champions? 

Inoesson doesn't look that for, but said: 
Td be extremely disappointed if we lose 
on Sunday. I’ve never played on a better 

Swedish team and I doubt Sweden wHl 
ever have a side like this one again.” - 

Ingeason, 23, has played for Sweden 46 
times since his debut m 1989 and was a 
member of the team that finished third in 
the 1992 Eu ro pe an Championship.' 

Ingesson, who plays for PSV Eindhoven 
in the Dutch first division and is one of 1 1 
foreign-based players on the. Sweetish 
team, will face one of his dub teammates 
on Sunday — the Gheorghe Fopescu. 

“Gheorghe is one erf my best friends on 
PSV Eindhoven,” Ingesson said. “He’s 
very strong in die air ami I think hell mark 

Andersson is the taHest Swedish player 
at 1.93 meters (64ootr4). He has scored 
three goals in the tournament, including 
two m a 3-1 victory over.Sauffi Arabia in 
the second round 

Ingesson was inconsistent in midfield 
during the first round, but played bis best 
game of the- to urnament against the Sau- 
dis. Lack of training was the main reason 
why Ingraron looked rusty early in the . 
tournament . «... 

In May, he was forced to wear a neck 

brace for three weeks after hitting a moose - 
with Ins car on his way to a golf course in 
Sweden. Then, in his second workout in 
the United States, he braised his thigh. 

Ingeason scored off a rebound for Swe- 
den in a 1-1 tie with Romania on June 12 in 
Mission Vigo, California, both teams’ fi- 
nal World Cup warm-up. 

' ; ”We were clearly the better team in that 
match despite the fact that we didn’t have 
our best team while they did,” Ingesson • 
said. “And we're better new.” 

The key to beating Romania, said Swe- 
den's coach, Tommy Svensson, is to dose 
down its options in midfield: that is, . 
©worghe Hagi, who has three goals rad is* 
a leading ca nd ida t e for the tournament's I

of. the tournament,” Svensson fold. “ms -

For the Final 8, the Plan k That There Is No Plan 

sore afoot. 

In ttrmtiOMl HeeaU Tritaau 

B OSTON -r Bulgaria needed to win in Paris 
nearly eight months ago to qualify for the 
World Cop finals instead of France. None of the 
Fiench seemed to woiiy — Bulgaria had never 
won in 16 " mf riw y in die Worid Cup finals. The 
gam*! in Fans was drawn, and Bulgaria was ap- 
parently, predictably, dead in a qualifying round 
900 minutes long.

ished the Bulgarians, 3-0, is the opening game 
Borislav Mihaylov, Bulgaria’s captain and 
goaZfcoeper, revealed (hat the players had gone on 
strike for two days after recavmg only onenBfth 
of a^ronrised $72,000 ^banus. deteri- 

orate whm^^^^eration^wit back on their 
word given last November,'* Mihaylov said two 
weeks ago. “Now we are just riot up to it physical- 
ly to play a tournament as demanding as this." 

Just & few boots before Argentina was to have 
knocked Bulgaria out of the first round, Mara- 

dona was banished from the Worid Cup for illegal 
drug use. Argentina lost its next two matches, 
including a 2-0 upset that put Bulgaria through to 
die second round. 

Whereupon Mihaylov beat Mexico on penalty 

For all of its fits of drama and tragedy, the 
World Cup has gone basically to plan. Basically, 
there was no plan. A record seven European 
teams have advanced, which might say something 
about European soccer but probably doesn’t — 
other than to deduce that the rest of the world 
went 1 for 11 in the first round. The three coun- 
tries that have won the World Cup three times — 
Brazil, Germany and Italy — are stiB alive, but 
each is hardly invincible, which is why Germany 
is nowin the position of worrying about Bulgaria. 

We are seemg yet again how pressures mount in 
this spot as in no other. Germany has always 
its own grand reputation. 

! yet the Germans will gp into their quarterfi- 
nal Sunday at Giants Stadium in New Jersey 
understanding that Rudi VQUer, the striker who 
turned things around for them last weekend, is 
34; that then* 33-year-old leader, Lothar Matth- 
aus, is still pained by the cut in his right foot that 
forced him to miss the second half against Bri- 
ghton; that they avoided a penalty Unit wbould 
have brought Belgium within a goal of forcing 
extra time, and that now they are facing a team 

that has exploited such weaknesses in its other 

A quarto- of the world’s last eight teams come 
from Central Europe, which might have been the 
least likely such producer in the last five years. 
With the demise of the East bloc, Bulgaria and 
Romania have prospered by selling their players 
to the West, substdumg the game at home while 
giving international players the experience that 
has seen them through the first games here. 

The Bulgarian star, Hrisio Stoitchkov, signed 
with Barcelona for $3 million, a Spanish bargain. 
Another striker, Luboslav Penev, went to Valen- 
cia. while Kostadinov plays for Porta Mihaylov 
for Mulhouse in the French second division, 
tia has grown up just as quickly. Follow- 
ing a 5-2 qualifying loss to the Czech Republic a 
year ago, the team fired its entire technical staff, 
including die manager. Corad Dinu. He was 
replaced by Anghel Jordan escu. who won his first 
three matches to put Romania into these finals. 
His record in meaningful games is now 6-1. 

Gheoighe Hagi, who let Romania down in the 
1990 finals, has lived up to his enormous reputa- 
tion. this year — thanks in large pan to his 
experiences first with Real Madrid and now with 
Brescia in the Italian League. Another of the eight 
Romanians on club payrolls in Western Europe- 
an is the striker Florin Radiirioiu. who bad the 
honor and misfortune of signing with AC Milan, 

the European champion, for which he played only 
sparingly this season. 

“Fd have to say the new political system has 
been helpful,'’ said lordanescu, more than four 
yean after the overthrow of Nicolae Ceaucescu. 
“Romania has always had talented players, but 
under the past system, our players couldn’t culti- 
vate their own personality or image. Now they 
can sign with professional teams and show their 
true talent and their true value." 

Romania would appear to have the easiest 
route to the semifinal, playing Sweden, a fellow 
darkhorse, Sunday in Los Angeles. The other 

lennany and Italy, 

_ it to be surprised to be here (Spain, 
Italy's opponent, having not advanced to the 
semifinals since 1950). 

The pressure has dearly eaten up Italy, which 
has been able to win only in the panic of losing a 


Then there is Brazil, which plays in a prologue 
mode — and a dazzling introduction it is — but 
has yet to get to the point. It has not achieved a 
higher gear, and now it is playing the Nether- 
lands, which, without Marco Van Basten, Ruud 
Gullit and the coaching of Johan Cruyff, are not 
expected to advance. In America, that is just the 
excuse to win.

PAULAS — It is nothing sew for the 
Dutch forward Dennis Bergkamp to be 
living other men's dreams. 

He was named for a Scottish soccer 
player whom his brothers admired, Denis 
Law, and with his family made regular 
vacation pilgrimages to England, where 
they watched as many matches as they 

When he wasn’t watching games, he was 
playing than. Before he was a teenager, he 
was touted for stardom by Johan Cruyff, 
who shepherded Bergkamp through the 
youth programs of the famed Ajax dub in 
Amsterdam, his hometown. 

Cruyff might have taught him a few 
tricks to fool defenders, but his sure touch 
around the net is distinctively bis own. So 
are his speed and acceleration, which over- 
shadow his subtle, precise skills with the 
bafl. With three Dutch league scoring titles 
to his credit, he has largely fulfilled the

le the worid over know Ro- 

of the Carpathians. 

He?s the best player on a team that is on 
thebestWorid Cup ran Romania has ever 
had.. Surrounded by the talented forwards 
IEe Dumitrescu and Florin Radudoiu and 
a hard-nosed defense led by Mfodrag Bdo- 
dedicL, .Bagi helped Romania win Group 
A, ahead of Switzerland, the United States 
add Cokmdna, and then defeat Argentina, 
3-2, in asemriflating second-round match. 

“I think that so far, Hagj is one of the 
two or three best players in the tourna- 
ment," said his teammate Dorind Mun- 
teano. “Romkrio is a good goal-scorer, but 
Gka could emerge as the best gayer," be 
added, referring to one of BrazaTs stars. 

“I opected him to play very well,” 
Mnnteanu said. “Same jreople who don’t 
know him may donbt him, but I was sure 
that he would play wefl." 

Actually, there are people who donbt 
Ham because they do know him. . 

They know he possesses the skill and 
instinct to take control of a game with 

dribbling runs that can leave defenders 
Joctkmg foohsb, with looping passes. Jhat 
spawn Romania’s lethal counterattacks or 
with a perfectly placed shot from 30 or 40 
meters that renders a goalkeeper helpless. 
The soccer worid got a taste ct this during 
the 1990 Worid Cop, when Hagi and the 
Romanians reached the second round be- 
fore losing to Northern Ireland on penalty 

• That performance prompted Real Ma- 
drid, me of Spain's traditional powers, to 
olliofl to purchase Hagj from 
i Bucharest. Steana had been ran by 
Valentin Ceaucescu, son of the late Roma- 
nian dictator, Nicolae Cea person, But the 
Ceancescu regime was overthrown in 1989, 
setting the stage for Romanian soccer 
to ply their trade abroad for the 

But Hagfs days with Real Madrid were 
far from spectacular. He struggled for two 
seasons before being unloaded to the Ital- 
ian dub Bresda, which fell from the first 
division to the second after Hagi’s first 
season there. 

Hagi also acquired a reputation for hot- 
headedness. It showed in all its ugliness in 
April, when he spat on the Northern Ire- 
land midfielder Philip Gray during an ex- 
hibition match in Dublin. That resulted in 
a two-game suspension from the Roma- 
nian Football Federation. 

Even in this World Cup, Hagi seemed to 
disappear during a first-round match 
against Switzerland that Romania lost, 4- 
1. Afterward, lordanescu had a little chat 
with his captain. 

“What I can tell you is that Hagi was 
criticized like other players for his play,” 
lordanescu said. 

Hagi responded with fine performances 
in Romania’s final first-round game 
against the United States and the second- 
round victory over Ar g e ntin a, which Hag i 
called “the greatest game of my life.” 

“To be honest,” he said, “I am very 
proud of myself because the years are 
going by. I'm not 22 years old anymore. 
But physically, Tm fine — especially when 
you play in a World Cop."

But not until the last three weeks, when 
the Netherlands began its march through 
the World Cup finals, has Bergkamp been 
able to live his own dreams. 

He was always polite and unassuming, 
eager to please but resistant to suggestions 
that he should be more dynamic. Team- 
mates attributed his unease to shyness, and 
they probably were right. 

Didn’t be reject a chance to play in 
Spain because he didn’t want to be alone in 
a foreign country? And when he decided to 
leave last fall to play in Italy for Inter 
Milan, didn't he insist that the chib also 
sign ins friend and Ajax teammate, Wim 
Jonk, so he wouldn’t be alone? 

They understood his skittishness, but 
some wondered about it. If he was reluc- 
tant to test himself in Spain, how would he 
perform under the pressure of starting for 
toe Netherlands in the World Cup — and 
of bring responsible for the team's offense 
after Ruud Gullit quit and Marco van 
Basten was injured? 

To their delight, he has reacted with his 
usual poise and modesty — and new assur- 
ance. Ber gkamp , 25, has blossomed during 
toe last tone weeks, becoming a complete 
player who is also completely at ease. 

He has dominated play in leading toe 
Netherlands to its quarterfinal match 
against Brazil on Saturday at toe Cotton 
Bowl in Dallas. He has soared two goals 
and assisted on another in his last two 
games and has generated scoring chances 
m every game, transforming the Dutch 
into an entertaining team that isn't hesi- 
tant to attack. 

“He is such an elegant player.” said his 
teammate Bryan Roy. “He is an intelligent 
player who scores a lot of goals. I think be 
will become toe greatest player in the 

He has given credence to that in toe 
Netherlands' four games. When he isn’t 
scoring goals, he is setting them up, as he 
did Roy’s game-winner in a 2-1 victory 
over Morocco in toe final first-round 
game, giving toe Netherlands the Group F 
title. Bergkamp scored toe first goal in that 
game, taking a pass from Peter van Vossen 
and beating toe defender Smahi Triki be- 
fore flicking toe bah past a helpless goal- 

“I saw right away it wasgoing to be a 
van Vossen said. “That goal was 
itifuL It was a beautiful moment.” 

It was significant, too, that in discussing 
that goal and his growing list of achieve- 
ments, Bergkamp looked directly at inter- 
viewers, speaking softly bat frankly and at 
length. In an interview a few weeks ago. he 
had looked off into the distance and mum- 
bled something politely vague. 

*Tm more confident,” he said. “And I'm 
playing with much more confidence, like 
the team. We have taken our level of play 
to another level since the first round. If we 
continue to build our confidence and play 
like this, we should do very well." 

Success has always come easily to Berg- 
kamp, who made his debut for Ajax at 17 
and for the Dutch national team at 21. The 
season he joined Ajax, the team went to toe 
Cup Winners’ Cup finaL He led Ajax to a 
Dutch league title in 1989-90, the season 
after be had set a league record by scoring 
goals in 10 consecutive games. He was toe 
Dutch player of the year in 1991 and toe 
players' player of the year in 1992, yet his 
critics weren’t satisfied. 

“They always expect me to score goals,” 
be said. “When you play in Italy and play 
for the Dutch team, toe expectations are 
very high, always.” 

“For me, it has always been like that.” 
he added. “When I was a young kid, 12 
years old, 1 played for Ajax and there was 
pressure. Every year the pressure is getting 
bigger and bigger. For me, it’s the same 

But it wasn’t the same old success story 
when he went to Inter Milan last falL He 
chose that dub instead of Barcelona, 
which is coached by Cruyff, because Inter 
promised to build its team around him and 
was wilting to pay $6.25 million to get him. 
He straggled to learn a new system, a new 
language and a new position — striker — 
instead of withdrawn forward. 

He was roasted by the soccer-mad Ital- 
ian press, called a spoiled rich boy and too 
meric to succeed. 

“In Italy, they threw me into the lion's 
den,” he said. “It was difficult, but I kept 
my faith in myself." 

It took a while, but be turned faith into 
results. Although Inter finished near the 
bottom of toe regular-season standings. 
Bergkamp produced a flurry of eight goals 
in leading toe dub to victory in the UEFA 
Cup tournament. In the meantime, be was 
guiding du Netherlands through Worid 
Cup qualifying, scoring five goals in four 

“He can make toe difference in toe field 
in any game,” said Ronald Koeman, the 
Dutch captain. “He’s playing on his best 
[level] right now." 

When he plays well, so do the Dutch, 
They attacked from toe start of their 2-0 
second-round victory over Ireland, and 
Bergkamp was in the thick of it. He con- 
verted a pass from Marc Ovennars to score 
the first goal which forced Ireland to mod- 
ify its def ensiv e stance and attack. That, in 
torn, left more openings for Bergkamp and 
his teammates, who scored again before 
halftime and played their best overall 
game of the tournament 

“The first half was a real showing of how 
the Dutch team can play,” Bergkamp said. 
“Unlike toe first three games, we dominat- 
ed everywhere, up front, in midfield and 
on defense. This game proved we can play 
with players on toe wings. Teams don't 
have to be so defensive to win games. This 
style of football has worked very well for 
us. We showed how Holland can play.” 

Well enough to beat Brazil? Bergkamp 
wasn't saying. 

“They are very talented and they have 
two great forwards in Bebeto and Ro- 
mirio,” he said. “But they need to worry 
about us, just tike we worry about them.*

M IAMI — Bruce Spring- chines. When he gels cm stage, 
steen played my guitar. I Joel tends to get nervous and 

1YJL steen played my guitar. I 
am not malnng this up. It was 
the high point of my musical 
life. I am never going to wash 
my guitar again. (Not that I 
ever did before.) 

I should explain that I belong 
to a band called the Rock Bot- 
tom Remainders. It consists 
mostly of writers. The original 
concept was that people who 
spend all their time writing 
would enjoy a chance to express 
their musical talent. The flaw 
here is that most of us don’t 
have any musical talent. So we 
compensate by playing ampli- 
fied mstruments loud enough to 
affect the weather. Also we 
stick to songs that are so well 
known that even when WE play 
them, people sometimes recog- 
nize them. 

For example, we play “Louie 
Louie.” You know how scien- 
tists have been trying fruitlessly 
for years to contact alien beings 
by broadcasting radio si gnals to 
outer space? Well, I think they 
should broadcast “Louie 
Louie.” I bet alien beings would 
immediately recognize this song 
and broadcast a response 


For a change of pace, the 
Rock Bottom Remainders also 
play “Wild Thing." We employ 
two powerful musical weapons 
when we perform this song. One 
is Roy Bloont Jr„ a great humor 
writer who has the raw natural 
musical talent of a soldering 
iron. At the end of the first 
verse, the band pauses dramati- 
cally, and Roy is supposed to 
say, “I LOVE you”; at the end 
of the second verse, he's sup- 
posed to say. “You MOVE 
me.” So wboi we get to the end 
of the first verse, we stop, and 
everybody turns expectantly to 
Roy, waiting for him to say “I 
LOVE you,” and Roy, frowning 
with deep concentration, inev- 
itably says: “You MOVE me." 

Our other big musical weapon 
an “Wild Thing” is Joel Selvm, a 
writer and rode critic who plays 
a plastic Ante that lodes like the 
kind you get from gum ball ma- 

chines. When he gets cm stage, 
Joel tends to get nervous and 
Wow REALLY HARD, so that 
instrad of notes, the flute emits a 
series of extremely high-pitched 
squeaks, like a gerbtl that fell 
into a french-fry machine. Some- 
times Joel’s entire solo is above 
the range of human hearing. 

1 play lead guitar in this 
band. My sole musical qualifi- 
cation is that I am slightly more 
experienced than the guy who 
plays rhythm guitar. Stephen 
King, well-known author of 
children's books (“The Little 
Engine That Could Sneak Into 
Your Room at Night and Eat 
Your Eyes”). In May, the Rock 
Bottom Remainders performed 
at a party in Los Angeles at the 
annual convention of the Amer- 
ican Booksellers Association. 
The audience members were re- 
ceptive, by which I mean they 
had been drinking. Some peo- 
ple got so receptive that they 
demanded an encore, so we de- 
cided to play “Gloria,” which 
we like because it's even simpler 
to play than “Louie Louie.” 

So we went back on stage, 
and I picked up one of the two 
guitars I'd been using, and just 
as we were about to start, Ste- 
phen tapped me on the shoulder 
and said, “We have a special 
guest” I turned around, and 
there was Bruce Springsteen. I 
still don't know how he came to 
be at this convention; I don’t 
believe he’s a bookseller. All I 
know is, he was picking up the 
other guitar. My guitar. 

So we played “Gloria," and I 
say in all modesty that it was 
the best version of that song 
ever played in the history of the 
world, going back thousands of 

Anyway, now I'm back in my 
office being a columnist a gain . 
But from time to time my mind 
drifts back to that night I 
haven’t polled the other mem- 
bers of the Remainders, but I 
think we would definitely let 
Bruce join the band, if he wrote a 

I would even let him play

P ARIS — Unlike a lot of artists these days. Bill 
Fontana, who makes sound sculptures, has been 
really lucky in Paris. His first project since moving 
here was accepted, financed and completed; No 
mean feat since it involved wrapping one of the- 
dry’s great monuments, the Are de Triomphe, in a 
wall of white noise. The work is called “Sound 

What Fontana did was install loudspeakers on the 
monument’s facade and a complicated console in 
small office, normally used by the military, in the 


upper reaches of the arch. Bemused tourists walking 
through the pedestrian tunnels under the murderous 
Place de PEtoile or standing near the tomb of the 
Unknown Soldier hear, instead of the roaring traffic's 
boom, the tremulous cadence of the sea. 

Sealed before his console, Fontana, who has made 
m«ianatifHis from Sydney to Frankfurt, explained his 
work: “Sound sculpture is a spatial presence of sound 
that endures in time. So that in the Arc de Triomphe 
you have the spatial presence of the sea enveloping the 

“Sound Island,” which Fontana first presented at a 
Paris show of public art projects in 1993, does not 
involve recorded replications but live transmissions of 
the deep sea swells from two points in Normandy. 

In the pedestrian tunnel, the sound is t ransmi tted 
via a hydrophone hanging from a whistle buoy five 
kilometers (three miles) out at sea. At ground level, 
the sound comes from coastal waters breaking near a 
German bunker at the Pointe du Hoc. Transmission 
to the arch is by digital telephone. 

“The whole monument is engulfed by the sound of 
the sea.” Fontana said. 

He put together “Sound Island,” which opened 
June 15 and was scheduled to run all summer, in only 
two months. With relative ease, Fontana got the 
$350,000 needed for “Sound Island" from the Minis- 
try of Culture, the city of Paris, and private backers 
such as AT&T. 

Where he was lucky was that bis sound, coming 
from Normandy, fit in with the June celebrations of 
the D-Day landings. He also hit, unwittingly, a sensi- 
tive spot in the Paris psyche which, despite its metro- 
politan arrogance, likes to be reminded of its rural 

One of the most successful slogans of the 1968 
events was “Undo- the cobblestones, the beach,” and 
a few years ago French peasants, who annually drive 
the country mad with their demonstrations, charmed 
Parisians by covering the Avenue des Champs-Ely- 
sfees with bay. Equally pleasing was the declaration 
some years back by the prefect of police that the 
hunting season was open, although there is no hunting 
in Paris. 

“It is wdl known that the pleasure of hunting is 
quite distinct from actually shooting at game,” the 
prefect explained. “The prefect of police did not want

The Benches of Central 

fetal fiateA’j-*/ 

to Tell 

By Anne Raver 

New York Times Service 

N EW YORK — You may riot think 
that seven beaches could tell the near- 
ly century-and-a-half story of Central 
Park. But if you know what you're sitting 
on, they can. 

Across from the park, at the Cooper- 
Hewitt National Museum of Design, at 
Fifth Avenue and East 91st Street, is a 
handful of benches deceptive m their pro- 
found simplicity. A few evocative old pho- 
tographs, accompanied by some weE-cho- 
sen words, capture the essence of each 
bench's moment in time. 

But essentially these seats just sit — in 
the museum’s elegant garden, which was 
designed to set off Andrew Carnegie's 64- 
room m ansion when the steel mngngrg 
his family moved uptown in 1902. 

It was a prescient act Wealthy New 
Yorkers tike the Vanderbilts and the Tiffa- 
nys had moved to the East 70s and 80s 
around the turn of the century, tat Fifth 
Avenue was still a dirt road. Hardly 50 

years before, Central Jteikfiad.beaicmXted 
out of 800 acres (325 hectares) of swarpp^ 
woodland, rocky cow pastures arid tome* 
settlements of toe city’s manri^rant . and; 
Mack populations. A :\'j' 

The benches in the former Qupegro.giff- 
den range from the rustic Adirtaaack' s$fe 
of the park’s be ginn i n gs to an ortrate hoop 
armed cast-iron model made for the 1939 
World’s Fair to the 1994" look-alike that 
echoes tows first Central' Park stttee from 
the 1870s. 

The star of the show, “Angles of Re- 
pose: A Garden Exhibition- of Central 
Pink Benches,” is a reproduction of one of 
the rustic log beaches fast designed §Y 
Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted 
to overlook the panoramic vistas of / tod“ 
artificial wilderness for wiridi the twog&tk- 
makers moved so many tons of eartitariti 
rode to construct. - • - : J . ; " : 

“They were supposed to tramqparf /da 
into a state of nature, " said Mkhae^Owen , 
Gotltin, a landscape antohect tta con- 
servancy. “By sitting on tK ff i and viewhig
