Clinton Gives Kohl Plan 
For Special Relationship 

Dollar Sellers 

a Signal 
To America 

By Lawrence Malkin 

International Herald Tribute 

NEW YOR.K — The dollar 
plunged against the yen and major 
European currencies Monday .in a 
rout that sent a message to the Federal 
Reserve to raise interest rates and to 
the Clinton administration to stop ne- 
glecting America's currency. 

After leaders from the Group of 
Seven industrialized countries left 
th eir weekend s ummi t mu ring with- 
out even mentioning the dollar in their 
communique, the currency lost almost 
four pfennigs against the Deutsche 
mark to bottom at the lowest point in 
20 mouths. 

The dollar also feS to another in a 
series of postwar lows against the yen 
and to a 13-month low against the 

The dollar closed Monday in New 
York at 1.5280 DM, down from 
1 .5610 Friday, at 1.2890 Swiss francs, 
down from 13 1 60, and at 5.2525 
French francs, down from 53650. The 
dollar dosed at 97.725 yen, downfmm 
98.055. The pound strengthened to 
SI 3720 from $13495. 

Dealers said the dollar would have 
weakened eves further against the yen 
if not for the death of the North Kore- 
an leader, Kim II Sung. Uncertainty in 
Asia prompted some of those dump- 
ing dollars to exchange them for Euro- 
pean currencies instead of yen. 

There were as many explanations 
for what had turned a steady erosion 
into a major seDoff as there were ex-' 
peris and analysts. Most agreed with 
Bronwyn Curtis, of Nomura Securi- 
ties Co. in London, that the Clinton 

a dminis tration had helped bring this 

on itself by talking down die dollar to 
gain a trade advantage a gainst Japan, 
thus upselling the normal cycle of 
Japanese companies r einv es tin g their 
export, profits in doflar-deopnanated 
bonds;" ■ ‘ ' • • ; * 

“But what made the spiral so deep, 
and when does it stop?” she asked. 
“I’ve spent hours on the phone in 
international conference calls today, 
and there is ho clear answer" 

Wayne Angefl, an inflation hawk 
who served as vice chairman of the 
Federal Reserve Board and is now 
chief economist at Bear Stems & Co., 
said the Fed was faffing way behind in 
raising interest rates. If the Fed waits 
for the August meeting of the policy- 
setting Federal Open Market Com- 
mittee to tighten, it will have to raise 
short-term rates a full percent 
point, to 535 percent, Mr. Angell 

He said he expected a quarter-point 
raise well before then. A signal could 
come on July 20, when Alan Green- 
span, the chairman of the Federal Re- 
serve Board, appears before Congress 
for his semiannual report on the Fed* s 
targets. . . .. 

In the meantime, many traders ana 
analysts focused on the international 
bond market and what the Federal 
Reserve could do to stabilize it. More

An Aid Alliance 

By Thomas L. Friedman 

New York 77mes Serriee ■■ 

BERLIN —Acknowledging that a unit- 
ed Germany is now the powerhouse of 
Europe, President BID CEnloh urged the 
Germans on Mooday to become America’s 
main partners in integra ting former East 
European Communist nations with tire 
economic and military institutions of the 

Mr. Clinton’s basic message was that the 
German- American mfHtflr y alliance of the 
Cold War, which had the United States in

a superior role, must be replaced with a 
more equal partnership focused on eco- 
nomics and the unification of Europe. 

Mr. Clinton noted: “Trade, as much as 
troops, will increasingly define the ties that 
bind nations in the 21st century.” 

American officials make clear that they 
view the other European countries, such as 
Britain and France, are either too econom- 
ically weak, or too inward 1 oolong, to play 
a leadership role in Europe. 

The “medal relationship” is increasing- 
ly with Germany. 

Chancellor Helmut Kohl said after his 
talks with President din ton that his nation 
was ready to assume the more assertive 
posture Washington is seeking. 

. - “Tfcc.excuse that wehad for the past 40 
years was that as a divided country we 
were unable to takecertain decisions,” said 
Mr. Kohl. “That is something that is no 
.longer valid.". 

Mr. Clinton and Mr. Kohl said they did 
not discuss the American dollar, which fell 
1 percent- Monday against the Deutsche 
marie — a huge amount for a single day — 
closing in Frankfurt at 13495 DM. 

. . American officials have rationalized the 
fall of the dollar against the Japanese yen 
as the natural result of Japan’s huge trade 
ampins with the United States, but the fall 
. of . the dollar agains t the Deutsche mark 
has to be deeply worrying because it sug- 
gests a broader loss of confidence. 

. Mr. Clinton, the first American presi- 
dent to visit Germany since unification, is 

in history. 

Tuesday.he will preside over the deacti- 
vafion of the last American military unit in 
Berlin, wheref there has been a U.S. troop 
presence for 49 years. 

- By coincidence, the German high court 
is expected to rale Tuesday, probably in 
the affirmative, on the constitutionality of 
.German troop participation in military op- 
erations beyond tire country's borders. 

And Germany is finally coming out of 
the recession created by the demands of 
absorbing the former East Gennanv. 

- President Clinton timed ins trip here to 
put America firmly on the tide of an asser- 
tive German leadership posture. 

After talks between President Clinton 
and Chancellor Kohl at the Gentian lead- 
er’s office in Bonn, Mr. Clinton said at a 
news conference: “We know from our ex- 
. perience how half erf Europe was integrat- 
ed through NATO and other institutions 
that bmlt stability after World War IL 
“At the heart of our discussion today 
was what we have to do to integrate Eu- 
rope’s other half,- the new independent 
nations: Poland, the Baltic countries, Rus- 
sia, Ukraine, Hungary, the Czech Repub- 
lic, Slovak Republic and others."

Ukraine and Belarus Throw Out Leaders 

By Fred Hiatt 

Washington Post Serna 

KIEV — Angry voters in Ukraine and 
neighboring Belarus have cast their leaders 
out of office, registering strong protests 
ova* the corruption and economic hard- 
ship of post-Soviet life, officials said Mon- 
day in releasing results of Sunday’s elec- 

Thepresidents-elect of Ukraine and Be- 
larus both swept into office with promises 
to impose order, crack down on corrup- 
tion, unprove living standards and broad- 
en economic ties with their giant neighbor 
to the east, Russia. ' 

The victories dramatically shifted the 
political landscape in the territory between 
Russia and Central Europe and heralded a 
period of change and potential instability 
m two nations that have been more timid 
than Russia in embarking on free market 

Ukraine, the larger of Russia's two Slav- 
ic neighbors with 52 million people, chose 
as its next president Leonid S. Kuchma, a 
former prime minister and engineer. 

Mr. Kuchma, 55, who once headed the 
Soviet Union’s biggest missile factory, 
vowed to maintain Ukraine’s indepen- 

dence, but said the nation must turn to 
Russia for economic ties. 

With more than 52 percent of the vote, 
according to preliminary figures, he de- 
feated the incumbent, Leonid M. Krav- 
chuk. 60, who was believed to have enjoyed 
the tacit support of the United States and 
other Western countries. 

Belarus, a nation of 10 million electing a 
president for the first lime, gave 80 percent 
of its vote to populist Alexander Luka- 
shenko, a former collective farm director.

ia Softens Hard Line on Dissident 

By Philip Shenon 

New York Tima Service 

RANGOON — The head of Burmese 
military intelligence said Monday that he 
would accept an invitation to meet with 
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, the imprisoned 
dissident leader and Nobel laureate, in a 
demonstration of his government’s will- 
ingness to “work hand in hand with politi- 
cians who have opposed us in the past.” 

The intelligence chief. Lieutenant Gen- 
eral Khin Nyunt is often described os the 
most powerful man in the government, 
and a meeting with Daw Aung San Suu 
Kyi would be an important symbolic step 
towards political reform. 

General Khin Nyunt did not set a date 
for the meeting and suggested that the 

timing could be decided only after further 
deliberations within the junta. ‘The meet- 
ing will take place at an appropriate time.” 
he said in an interview m which he was 
notably conciliatory toward the pro-de- 
mocracy leader, a woman he described in 
the past as a dnpe of Burmese Commu- 

“Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is cot an 
enemy," be said. “In fact she is the daugh- 
ter of one of our generals. She is younger 
than me. and I think of her like a younger 

Noting that the junta had recently 
signed peace settlements with several eth- 
nic rebel groups, he added, “We are willing 
to work hand in hand with the politicians 
who have opposed us in the past.” 

General Khin Nyunt said it was too 
early to discuss an agenda for the meeting 
with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, who on July 
20 will enter her sixth year under house 
arrest in her family’s lakeside compound 

Diplomats and other Burmese officials 
said the meeting would almost certainly 
not take place until after a national consti- 
tutional convention reconvenes in Septem- 

The convention, which is being conduct- 
ed mostly outside public view and under 
the tight control of the country's military, 
is expected to produce a constitution that 
will enshrine the military's political role

Kim Jong II 
Makes Public 
With Military 

Heads of Forces Gather 
Around Designated Heir 
As Father Lies in State 

By T. R. Reid 

Washington Part Service 

SEOUL — Kim Jong IL the mysterious 
man who may become the next dictator of 
Communist North Korea, made his first 
public appearance in weeks on Monday 
night, presiding over an elaborately emo- 
tional mourning ceremony beside his fa- 
ther’s glass-covered coffin. 

A brief videotape from Pyongyang’s 
state-run television showed the 52-year- 
old son, wearing a black arm band on his 
gray Mao suit and weeping into a handker- 
chief, with all (he nation’s military leader- 
ship gathered around him at the Presiden- 
tial Palace where the late ruler Kim □ Sung 
lies in state. 

Family members that some analysts 
think might be competing for power — the 
ruler’s second wife, Kim Song Ae, and her 
son, Kim — were not visible. 

Again on Monday. North Korean 
broadcasts referred to Kim Jong n with 
such titles as “Excellency" and “Great 
Leader," titles previously reserved for his 
father, the only ruler in North Korea since 
its creation after World War IL 

But there was still no announcement 
that his son has successfully taken control 
of what is called a hermit state and its 
million-member military force. 

South Korean officials said a formal 
declaration could come in days, or weeks, 
or never, depending on how successfully 
the son maneuvers in the immediate fu- 

The South Korean foreign minister, Han 
Sung Joo, said experts in Seoul believed 
Kim Jong H was “most likely" to take over 
as ruler. But Mr. H«i said the lack of a 
dear decision so far makes South Korea 
somewhat wary of the prospects for a 
North-South summit meeting. 

A summit meeting between Kim D Sung 
and President Kim Young Sam — the first 
such session since the Korean Peninsula 
was split into two countries — had been 
scheduled for July 25. 

The North sent a brief notice Monday 
saying that the summit meeting must be 
“postponed" because of the death of Kim 
11 Sung. 

On Saturday, South Korean officials 
said they would be willing to go ahead with 
a meeting as soon as the North named a 
new president. 

But Seoul’s foreign minister was more 
reserved on Monday, indicating that the 
South would not agree to such a meeting 
until some North Korean leader could 
demonstrate actual control. 

"If and when a new environment that is 
conducive to holding a summit arises, dis- 
cussions for the inter-Korean summit will 
resume,” Mr. Han said. 

Plans for the long-awaited summit ses- 
sion “maybe will go back to Square Two," 
Mr. Han added. 

That means, he said, that the principle 
of a summit meeting is still in place, but "a 
new negotiation will have to take place” 
between the two Koreas about the time 
and conditions for a summit meeting, after 
the power transition in the North is com- 

Mr. Han said that North Korea’s high- 
level talks with the U.S. in Geneva would 
be delayed indefinitely. 

“We have obviously lost a few days to a 
few weeks in Geneva,*as the North Korean 
delegation has to go back to Pyongyang 
and wait until after the funeral for its 

Mr. Han said that South Korea has seen 
“nothing that contradicts the announce- 
ment of the cause of death.” 

Some officials speculated that he might 
have been the victim of a palace coup, 
perhaps from hard-liners who opposed ms 
moves toward negotiation with the United 
States and South Korea. 

Pyongyang has said no foreigners will be 
admitted for the funeral. 

Just three weeks ago, Mr. Kim was host 
for a visit by former President Jimmy Car- 
ter. and Mr. Carter served as go-between 
in arranging the North-South summit 

But according to Mr. Han and other 
South Korean officials, Mr. Carter was 
rebuffed on Saturday when he contacted 
Pyongyang and asked about attending the 

For East German Diplomats, the Cookie Crumbles

BERLIN — The group of slightly shabby retirees 
chatting outside a library in eastern Berlin one recent 
afternoon hardly looked like former members of an 
international elite,' at ease in the company of kings and 

3 ; 

! elite, 


Until 1990, these men and women were East Germa- 
n’s diplomats, among them specialists with unique webs 

contacts in foreign lands. They are now banned from 
diplomatic service, forbidden to ’practice the only trade 
most of them know. 

No longer do they enjoy the privileges of large staffs, 
limousines, official residences and gilt-edged invitations 
to state functions. 

Many five anonymously in drab apartments, the glitter 
of their former fives fading into memory. 

Some, brooding in their forced retirement, have be- 
come angry and embittered. Others have found new 

careers and are making more money than East German 
functionaries ever dreamed of. 

The former diplomats have formed a club, the Associ- 
ation for International Politics and Human Rights. At 
their recent meeting in Berlin, the chairman, Siegfried 
Bock, a former ambassador to Romania, announced 
seminars on Cuba, Russia and “the Albanian factor in 
Balkan politics." 

He also announced that the association had recently 
sent congratulatory telegrams to Nelson Mandeb and 
Yasser ArafaL 

“In South Africa and Palestine, goals for which East 
Germany and its diplomats fought for years arc being 
achieved," Mr. Bock asserted. 

Nearly 200 former diplomats in the audience repre- 
sented an aging but unique resource, a veritable foreign- 
miniun ry-in- waiting with sweeping knowledge of lan- 
guages. history and personalities. 

However, the German government, fearful of the im- 

plications of hiring diplomats who spent their careers 
serving communism, wants nothing to do with them. 
Bonn did not even seek to debrief them or ask them for 
suggestions on how to deal with the countries in which 
they once served. 

Many of the unwanted diplomats have found lucrative 
work in countries where they were posted. Former am- 
bassadors to China and Vietnam, for example, now run 
thriving businesses representing European companies in 
those countries. 

A former ambassador to Cuba runs a travel agency 
that specializes in Havana vacations. 

Others, particularly those who were at lower and 
middle levels, now work as cooks and taxi drivers. A few 
are unemployed and without prospects. 

For a brief period while German reunification was 
being designed in 1990, it appeared (hat at least some

A ‘Lightweight 9 Leader May Be What EU Powers Want world br iefs 

By Tom Buerkle 

International Herald Tribune 

BRUSSELS — Die European Union nar- 
rowed its search for a successor to Jacques De- 
fers on Monday but Elf sources said the process 
r appeared to have eliminated the best qualified 

Chancellor Helmut Kohl of Germany on 
Monday formally summoned the other 1 1 heads 

of government to a summit meeting here Friday 
'to anoint a candidate for the presidency of the 
European Commission. The move increased 
pressure on his colleagues to agree on a candi- 
date and avoid a repeal of the embarrassing 
failure in Greece two weeks ago, when Prime 
. Minister John Major of Britain vetoed Belgium's 
Jean-Luc Dehaene at the last minute. 

The latest front-runner, EU sources said, was 
Prime Minister Jacques San ter of Luxembourg. 
He enjoys solid German and French backing. 

sources say, and as a Christian Democrat from a 
small member state, he has the right credentials 
to replace Mr. Dolors, a French Socialist. 

But despite being regarded as an able man, he 
packs little clout as leader of the Union’s small- 
est country. “Our feeling is he's a lightweight," a 
Belgian official said. 

The other name most often mentioned. Foul 
Schluter, the former Danish prime minister, is 
skeptical of European integration. His country 
has opted out of the Union’s common defense 
and justice policies. 

Mr. Schluter, who resigned 18 months ago 
over an immigration scandal, is best known for 
his dismissive response in 1986 when asked if 
Denmark was giving up its sovereignty in signing 
the Single European Act, which paved the way 
for the 1992 single market. ‘The European 
Union is stone dead,” he replied. 

Asked about the two men's merits, a German 

official said that “both are basically acceptable 
to aD member states.” 

But that comment underlines the dn«nma 
facing EU leaders. Stronger candidates have 
been either vetoed, like Mr.Dehacne, rejected by 

France and Germany, as was the Dutch prime 
minis ter, Ruud Lubbers, or pulled themselves 
out of the running, as Spam's Felipe Gouz&lez 
has done. 

Despite the German contention that this is the 
most important job in Europe, leaders seem 
likely to reach agreement only on the lowest 
common denominator, EU officials said. That is 
especially the case after Mr. Major said Monday 
that he stood ready to veto any candidate not in 
Britain’s interest. 

Still, it is impossible to predict how any candi- 
date will perform. Mr. Defers showed as much 
by being plucked from relative obscurity at the 
last minute in 1984, only to lead Europe into the 

single-market program and the Maastricht trea- 
ty, which envisages a Europe with a common 
currency, defease and justice policies. 

But European officials axe bracing for little 
more than a caretaker successor at the commis- 
sion who wffl leave die initiative very much to 
Bonn. Paris and other capitals as Europe beads 
for a 1996 conference to redesign institutions for 
a Union of 20 or more members. 

‘They’re not looking for a very visionary Eu- 
ropean,” an EU official said. ‘They’re looking- 
for a down-to-earth, pedestrian sort of president 
who would emphasize subsidiarity and not put 
forward very difficult proposals." “Subsidiarity” 
is EU talk for Htmting the role of the Brussels 

Among die other candidates is CHuliauo 
Amato, the former Italian prime monster But he 
has obtained little support from the new conser- 
vative government of Prime. Minister Silvio

chief U.S. delegate to nuclear 
talks with North Korea said 
Monday that he expected the 
suspended negotiations to re- 
sume by the end of this month. 

“We have said ‘in the coming 
weeks' and I expect that is very 
likely to be before the end of the 
month, ” said Assistant Secre- 
tary of State Robert L. Gal- 
lucci, “but I can't be certain of 

Mr. Gallucci, who has been 
conducting negotiations with 
the North Koreans, made his 
comments on television from 
Geneva after he had been in-

being suspended because of the 
death of President Kim II Sung. 

Asked if he had assurances 
that the North Korean presi- 
dent's death did not mean the 
end of the talks, Mr. Gallucci 

T think we have the closest 
thing to assurances. We have an 
! agreement that after the period 
of mourning, which will end 
with a funeral on the 17th of

their mission in New York and

He said the United Stales 
was “reasonably certain” that 
the negotiations would go for- 

• The talks represented an un- 
usual opening to the West in 
one of the last acts ordered by 
Kim D Sung. 

Their continuity is a high 

U.S. priority, providing the 
North Koreans keep their word 
on allowing continued United 
Nations monitoring of their nu- 
clear installations. 

In Bonn on Monday, Presi- 
dent Bill Clinton said: “I think 
it is in the interest of the United 
States that North Korea contin- 
ue to suspend its reprocessing

gage in those talks. They have 
told us that the talks will re- 
sume after an appropriate time 
for grieving."

Kim Jong II Appears 
On Track to Take Over 

Compiled by Of Staff From Dispatches 

SEOUL — There were strong 
signs from Pyongyang on Mon- 
day that Kim Jong D, the reclu- 
sive heir-apparent, was moving 
smoothly to succeed his father 
as leader of North Korea. 

Most importantly, the securi- 

ty forces, which are the pillar of 
the regime, expressed their loy- 

alty to the son, according to a 
broadcast by Radio Pyongyang, 
monitored by the BBC 
“Recalling the glorious, bril-

7 F oreigners Among Yicthns, Police Blame Terrorists 

M. Gates, the former CIA di- 
rector, said Monday he would 
not rule out the possibility feat 
President Kim 11 Sung of North 
Korea was killed by hard-liners 
wary of the tack he was taking 
wife the United States and 
South Korea. 

“I think there is some small 
chance that he met his end oth- 
er than with a heart attack,” 
said Mr. Gates, who headed the 
CIA from November 1991 to 
January 1993. Mr. Gates said 
such a plot was not the most 
likely explanation, “but it can’t 
be dismissed.” If it did mm out 
that the 82-year-old leader was 
killed, it could be bad news for 
future relations. 

He said he believed Kim Jong 
D, the president’s son and desig- 
nated successor, was “some- 
thing of a flake,” based on the 
information he had Mien he 
headed the CIA. 

“Frankly, I think he will have 
to bend in a direction feat is 
congenial to fee North Korean 
generals. And I don’t think 
that's very encouraging.” 

Mr. Gates said the timing of 
Mr. Kim's death, just as North 
Korea held fresh talks wife fee 
United States and planned its 
first-ever summit meeting with 
South Korea, was “all too con- 
venient” and raised suspicions 
in the case of a man not known 
to have had cardiac problems.

ALGIERS — Gunmen killed 
eleven people Monday in Al- 
giers, seven of them foreigners, 
prompting concern that Islamic 
fundamentalist guerrillas are 
intensifying a terror campaign. 

There was no immediate 
daim of responsibility for the 
attacks, but Algerian security 
services described them as “ter- 
rorist” acts, a term normally 
used by officials to refer to ac- 
tivities by armed Islamic 

In one attack, gunmen 
opened fire on a restaurant in 
the Algiers Zoo, killing two Al- 
gerians and two persons from 
fee former Yugoslavia while 
they were eating lunch. 

Earlier, five foreign workers 
were taken off a bus in an Al- 
giers suburb, separated from 
Algerian passengers, forced to 
kneel and shot, witnesses said. 

One of the victims was Rus- 
sian, one Ukrainian and two 
woe from Belarus, a spokes- 
man for the Russian Embassy 
in Algiers said, in a report car- 
ried in Moscow by fee agency 
Itar-Tass. The fifth was from 
Romania. The Algerian govem- 
tocai had initially said they 
were all Russian.

Officials said the circum- 
stances of fee shootings were 
not dear. 

The victims of the bus shoot- 
ing wore contract workers with 
the state oil company and were 
cm their way to work in Algiers 
when the bus was halted 

Russia said it was “very seri- 
ously worried” by fee attack 
and asked fee Algerian govern- 
ment to “take tte necessary 
measures to ensure the safety” 
of foreigners. It called it “a mat- 
ter of fee first importance” for 

Tbe violence came less than a 
week after seven Italian sailors 
died in an attack blamed on 
fundamentalists. The Italian 
news agency ANSA reported 
that police had arrested .two 
subjects in the killings. 

With the latest deaths, Islam- 
ic fundamentalists are believed 
responsible for the deaths of 51 
foreigners since last September.

The Associated Press 

PARIS — A fragile 17th century pastel by the French artist 
Robert Nanteuil was stolen from the Louvre during visiting 
hoars, authorities said Monday. It was the first theft from the 
museum since 1 990. 

“Portrait of Jean Doricu," created in 1660 and valued at 
about 500,000 francs ($93,000), was removed from its frame 
on Sunday. A viator noticed the empty frame and alerted 
security guards, who sealed off exits and searched departing 
visitors. About 27,000 people were in the museum at the time 
of the theft, officials said. 

The last art theft from fee Louvre was on July 4, 1990, when 
a Renoir portrait was taken. It was recovered two months 

The museum's director, Michel Laclotte, said the Nanteuil 
work, a portrait of a magistrate, was “extremely fragile” and 
almost certain to be damaged by the theft

A conservative Republican, Judge Wright 
was appointed to the post on the UX District 
Court m 1990 by President George Bush, ^ 
she ruled in some important cases from. Mr. 
Clinton's last years as governor, handing him 
a mixed bag of victories and defeats. 

She is; currently preriding over a Little 
Rock school desegregation case and ruled in 
1 991 that the court had no an tlwrityto extend 
district tax rates to carry out desegre gati on. 

She has upheld the Arkansas death penalty 
statute, which Governor Clinton supported, 
but ruled that Arkansas violated federal law- 
when it cutxrimbursanezit rates to Medicaid - 
providers in 1992. 

Now, Judge Wright; 45; has been assigned 
to a case that brings a rare question of pres--

when President John F. Kennedy was sued in 
California for his indirect role in a traffic .

Convention, in Los Angeles. 

A California state judge ruled that Mr. 
Kennedy could be sued as any ordinary cats- ■

Clinton and Kohl Chemistry Bubbles Over 

By Ruth Marcus 

Washington Past Service 

BONN — Of all .the world leaders 
President Bill Clinton has met at home 
and abroad, there is one who dearly 
stands out as his favorite: Chancellor 
Helmut Kohl -of Germany. 

Aides who remark on the evident 
warmth between the two men point to 
their common working-class origins, 
their mutual passion for politics, and 
their equally impressive appetites. 

The chunky president looks positively 
svelte next to his portly German coun- 
terpart, a point that Mr- Clinton mis- 
chievously drove home at the NATO 
summit in Brussels in January when he 
told Mr. Kohl he had been watching 

sumo wrestling on television the night 
before and “I was thinking of you.’’ 

The two leaders had a ternfic time 
when they chawed down at Filomena’s 
restaurant in Washington a few weeks 
later, consuming impressive quantities 
of food 

The chemistry between the two lead- 


ers was evident here Monday when they 
met again after seeing each 'other just a 
day earlier, at the economic summit 
meeting in Naples. 

In the sun-dappled garden of the Ger- 
man Chancellery, Mr. Clinton was 

tossed a tricky question about his assess- 
ment of Kim Jong H, the son of the late 
president of North Korea. He respond- 
ed by batting it to Mr. KohL 

“I wish you'd answer that question, 
Helmut,” Mr. Clinton said —and, to his 
apparent ddiaht, Mr. Kohl obliged. 

Germany is holding elections this fall, 
and Mr. CHnton dutifully hewed to pro- 
tocol, meeting with leaders of the posi- 
tion parties. But his own vote could not 
have been dearer Monday at the start of 
a lunch — marinated fillet of beef, souf- 
flfe fillet of sole and peach parfaii with 
berry salad — at the Petersburg Guest- 
house, a top a mountain overlooking the 

After listening to Mr. Kohl's toast 

outlining the roles of Germany and 
'N.merica *t*® rnid War, Mr. Clin- 
ton said: “It reminded me of what so 
often happens at the G-7 meetings or 
NATO meetings. They call on me and 1 
say. T agree with HelmuL’ " 

Mr. Kohl beamed at the praise, a 
welcome political boost here, where the 
American president is a popular figure. 
Asked whether Mr. Clinton was deviat- 
ing from political neutrality, a senior 
official said, "I think that it’s undeniable 
that the president and the chancellor 
have very close and wans personal rela-

— In another act of defiance 
toward the world community, 
Haiti's nnlhaiy-backed rulers 
ordered international human 
rights monitors on Monday to 
leave the country within 48 

- The announcement, which 
came in a note from the Foreign 
Ministry , was immediately con- 
demned by the United Nations 
and the Organization of Ameri- 
can States, which ran a mission 
to monitor and document hu- 
man rights abuses in Haiti. 

The Haitian move also drew 
verbal fire from Wariungton. 
“We certainly condemn the Se- 
gal de facto regime in Port-au- 
Prince for its intention to expel 
the UN-OAS human rights ob- 
servers from Haiti,” a State De- 
ri news conference. 

The spokeswoman said the 
decision by Haiti’s military 
leaders was “certainly a serious 
escalation in the conflict be- 
tween the regime and the inter- 
national community.” 

The joint rmsrioQ began in 
1992 as part of an aborted 
agreement to. return Haiti’s 
ousted president, Jean-Ber-_ 
trand Aristide, to power. The 
military, led by Lieutenant 
General Raoul Cfcdras, over- 
threw Father Aristide in a mili- 
tary coup in September 1991. 

UN officials in Haiti said 
that a formal decision on 
whether to obey the order had 
not been made, but that the 
ultimatum would almost cer- 
tainly be meL On Wednesday, 
the mission suspended opera- 
tions when the de facto govern- 
ment questioned their legality. 

“Security of oar personnel is 
always right near the top of the 
list of priorities,” a UN official 
said. “I am pretty sure we will 
be leaving.” 

A special envoy for the mis- 
sion , Dame Caputo, speaking 
in New Yoric, called the expul- 
sion an “outrageous decision,” 
a “provocation" and an “in- 

“They kill people, they tor- 
ture people, they rape people,” 
Mr. Caputo raid of the Haitian 
mxlitazy. “And they don't want 
any witnesses in their country." 

Hie mission wrote numerous 
reports documenting human 
rights abuses by the military 
and its civilian allies, accusing 
them of murder, torture and 
-systematic^ politically motivat- 
ed rape. 

While powerless to stop 
abuses, the mission had proved 
a thorn in the side of the mili- 
tary, issuing a steady stream of 
r e p orts that stronglylinked the 
military to abuses. The reports 
were widely viewed as credible 
by the international communi- 

The timing of the move by 
Haiti’s defactb government, led 
by the proviaonal president. 
Emile Jonassaint, puzzled some 
diplomats and observers. They

fear from the international 

In an effort to force the gov- 
ernment to step aside, the Unit- 
ed Nations, led by the United 
States, has placed a near-total 
commensal blockade on Haiti, 
cutting off the flow of fuel and 
commerce. Almost all cornices 
dal flights also have been cut 
c£f t . leaving the impoverished 
nation virtually isolated. 

President Bill CHnton and 
other U.S. offidals have said 
repeatedly in recent days that 
they do sot rule out the possi- 
bflity;af mili tary action to re-

In Household Homicides, Men Have Edge 

By David Johnston 

New York Times Service 

WASHINGTON — When a spouse kills 
a spouse, wives are the victims in nearly 
two-thirds of the cases, a study released by 
the Department of Justice found. 

The survey of 8,063 homicides in U.S. 
urban areas provided a sketch of murder in 
families as national attention was focused 
on domestic violence because of the OJ. 
Simpson case. 

On Friday, a judge ordered Mr. Simp- 
son to stand trial on charg es that he killed 
his former wife and a friend of hers. 

The study, by the department's Bureau 
of Justice Statistics, found that 1,308 vic- 
-tims, or about 16 percent of the total were 
related to their killers. Of the rest, 64 
percent died at the Hands of an unrelated 
acquaintance, and 20 percent were killed 
by strangers. 

The study, which generally agreed with 
previous research on the topic, contradict- 
ed some beliefs about family violence. The 

survey did not find That the criminal justice 
system treated defendants in domestic vio- 
lence cases less harshly than other accused 

The outcomes of family murder cases 
were about the same as those in all types of 
murder cases. Defendants were about as 
likely to be charged with first-degree mur- 
der as all murder defendants, ana were no 
more likely to be acquitted or have their 
cases ritsiTnyyd . 

About half of the defendants in family 
killings had been previously arrested, a 
smaller percentage than the three-quarters 
of the defendants in nonfamily killings 

Firearms were used in 42 percent of 

Firearms were used in 42 percent 
family kflltwg^ less frequently than in non- 
family homicides, when firearms were used 
in 63 percent of the cases. 

While husbands were much more likely 
overall to ItiU their wives than vice versa, 
among blade couples wives killed their 
husbands at nearly the same rate as hus- 
bands killed wives. Forty-seven percent of 

black spouses killed by a spouse were hus- 
bands and S3 percent were wives. 

The statistics also drew a stark picture of 
fathers and mothers who kill their off- 
spring. Of all family murders, more than 
one-fifth involved parents killing their 
children, a crime committed more often by 
mothers than by fathers. 

Mothers were more likely to murder a 
son than a daughter; 64 percent of their 
victims were sons. Fathers, in contrast, 
were more likely to kill daughters, who 
made up 52 percent of the slam. 

In murders of children under the age of 
12, parents were the defendants in 57 per- 
cent of the cases. Nearly 80 percent of the 
children in these cases had been abused by 
the parent who killed them. 

Several themes ran through the data. 
Most family killin g; occurred at night, in 
the home. Nearly half the defendants and 
about one-third of those killed had been 

Death Penalty Seen Unlikely in Simpson Case 

The Assoaacd Press 

LOS ANGELES — Jurors would be 
unlikely to impose the death penalty 
against OJ. Simpson because of his pop- 
ularity, legal experts say. 

“There is no way that a jury is going to 
return a death judgment against OJ. 
Simpson," said a criminal lawyer, Barry 
Levin, a former Los Angeles police offi- 
cer who has investigated nine capital 

“What it boils down to is, the only way 
a jury mil kill your client is if he is a 
complete they hme him," he 


Few people hate Mr. Simpson. In fact, 
recent polls show that most see him more 

as a football hero or celebrity than a man 
accused of murder. 

His only c riminal conviction has been 
a no-contest plea to misdemeanor wife- 
beating in 1989. He was placed on proba- 

“OJ. Simpson has the advantage of- 
beang known for something other than 
allegedly killing his wife and another 
person," said Bryan Stevenson, director 
of an Alabama resource center on capital 

p unishmen t. 

“When you’re forced to see the defen- 
dant as something more than the crimi- 
nal act, it becomes much harder to say, 
‘We’re going to kill you.’ " 

Prosecutors still have not derided 

whether to seek the death penalty against 
Mr. Simpson, who is accused of murder- 
ing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, 
and her friend. Ronald Goldman, on 
June 12. 

He was ordered Friday to stand trial 
Mr. Simpson, who has been jailed with- 
out bail since his arrest on June 17, 
pleaded innocent. His arraignment is 
scheduled for July 22. 

A committee in the prosecutor's office, 
led by the assistant district attorney, 
Frank E. Sundstedt, will deride whether 
to seek capital punishment Mr. Sund- 
stedt has declined to discuss the case, but 
he noted that the death penalty is rarely 
imposed in domestic homicides. 

Health-Care Tide Undermines Clinton Plan 

By Karen Tumulty 
and Edwin Chen 

Los Angeles Tima Service 

may turn out to be the ultimate 
irony of Bill Omton's presiden- 
cy, it appears that any health- 
care legislation that emerges 
from a yearlong battle on Capi- 
tol Hill will look more like for- 
mer President George Bush’s 
vision of reform than Mr. Clin- 

Although Democratic leaders 
in the House and Senate may 
succeed in their struggle to re- 
verse the political tide, momen- 
tum now appears to be building 
toward a consensus that would 
drastically scale back the role of 
government originally pro- 
posed by Mr. Clinton. 

The evolving legislation ap- 
pears likely to rely primarily on 
private businesses — rather 
than government — to bring 
health-care costs under control 
It probably will fall conadera- 
", short of Mr. Clinton’s goal 
making sure that all Ameri- 
cans who are now uninsured 
would be able to obtain cover- 
age. And it would do little or 
nothing to distribute the health- 
care burden more equitably by 
requiring employers to take 
part and by reducing rampant 
cost-shifting between groups of 
patients ana providers. 

This more modest approach, 
which puts most of its faith in 
reforming the insurance market 
and giving government subti- 
dies to those who cannot afford 
coverage, has a familiar ring. 
“Hiere's no question we are 
[ back to the Bush health 
. Absolutely,” said Richard 

Smith, the top h ea lth-care an- 
alyst at the Association of Pri- 
vate Pension and Welfare 



Plans, a consortium of large 

“Now that we’ve been starkly 
confronted with a dramatically 
different vision that arguably 
goes much too far, the clear 
trade-offs are apparent and the 
more modest approach looks 
better,’’ he added. 

Two House committees and 
two Senate panels have ap- 
proved their own versions of 
health-care reform. Although 
the bills stSl must dear the 
House and Senate floors, some 
outlines of what could be tiie 
ultimate legislation are 
into focus. 

Already gone are Mr. Clin- 
ton’s huge, government-orga- 
nized "alliances’’ through 
which most Americans would 
have bought their health cover- 
age. Instead, the congressional 
committees have opted for vol- 
untary cooperatives through 
which small businesses and in- 
dividuals could pool their pur- 
chasing power. 

It is also fairly dear that gov- 
ernment will not have as much 
power over health-care costs as 
Mr. Clinton bad proposed. 
Most of the committees weak- 
ened his provision to impose 
caps on increases in health-in- 
surance premiums, end there 
will be intense pressure on the 
floors of the House and Senate 
to further dilute the provisions 
or discard them entirely. 

The most important question 
that remains is whether Mr. 
Clinton can hold to his goal of 
guaranteeing coverage for every 
American. House and Senate 
leaders insist they will present 
legislation that does that, but 
no one has come up with a po- 
litically acceptable means erf 
paying the buL 

Leon E. Panetta, the newly 
appointed White House chief of 
staff, reiterated Sunday that 
Mr. Clinton would fight for 
universal coverage in some 
form, which Mr. Panetta said 
must be financed by a so-called 
“employer mandate.” 

Mr. Clinton would require 
employers to pay 80 percent of 
their workers’ health premium 
costs. Most outside analysts say 
they believe Congress is likely 
to follow the lead of the Senate 
Finance Committee, which 
abandoned the employer man- 
date in the face (rf enormous 
opposition from business. 

the committee voted 
for a package of incentives and 
reforms that its sponsors pre- 
dict will lead to the coverage of 
roughly 20 mfflinn of the more 
t han 37 mDlion Americans who 
now lack health insurance. Crit- 
ics, however, say that projection 
is far too optimistic. 

The winners in this monu- 
mental battle are likely to be 
employers — which is not a bad 
thing m the view of Paul Ell- 
wood, a guru of the “managed 
competition” theory to which 
most in the health-care debate 
now say they subscribe. 

“1 think the employers have 
been the most powerful influ- 
ence in sha ping whatever posi- 
tive directions the health system 
is taking,” Mr. Ellwood said. 
Corporations have been at the 
forefront in embracing such 

cost-saving approaches as man- 
aged care ana are increasingly 
hard-nosed in bargaining down 
the rates that hospitals and in- 
surance companies can c h a rg e: 

As a result, health-care costs 
are moderating without a gov- 
ernment-led overhaul of the 

Yet those benefits would 
largely miss the working poor 
and the middle-class uninsured, 
that is, most of those who now 
lack coverage.

SribttttC. Japan Has Cause to Worry About Chinese Ambition 


Russia Is the Key 

Poland, like other countries in Eastern 
Europe, is unhappy that it is not being 
[offered a firm timetable for full member- 
• ship in NATO. Bill Clinton was reminded 
L of that when he visited last week. The 
. Partnership for Peace — established in 
NATO to allay the insecurity of Russia’s 
[neighbors while not antagonizing Russia 
— still leaves the East Europeans uneasy. 
But President Clinton was wise to defer his 
' decision. To include countries such as Po- 
land now invites the redrawing of lines in 
. Europe and the start of a second cold war. 

The Partnership for Peace is two things: 
an effort to integrate Russia into the rest of 
Europe, not leave it wit in the cold, by 
developing the rudiments of collective se- 
curity; and a hedge against failure, and the 
revival of Russian imperialism, by prepar- 
ing to expand the alliance eastward. 

In its collective security aspect, it wiQ 
involve all the partners in joint military 
planning and training for peacekeeping in 
the region. At least that will get ail the 
region s armies in the habit of working 
with tbeir neighbors. Partners like Poland 
can also prepare to become allies by famil- 
iarizing themselves with the alliance’s mili- 
tary requirements and ways of operating 
while remedying their own deficiencies. 

But closer partnership poses a contra- 
diction: to expand NATO would alienate 

Russia. Thai contradiction will come into 
play weQ before full membership be- 
comes an issue, as East Europeans look to 
the West instead of to Russia to supply 
new arms. Perhaps the Russian military 
could be induced to engage in joint plan- 
ning with the United States on common 
concerns likep reventing nuclear and mfe- 
sile proliferation. Perhaps conversion will 
find other work for Russian arms suppli- 
ers. But these steps are unlikely to dis- 
solve the contradiction. 

One way out is to focus on cha n ging 
the mifi tnry cultures of all these coun- 
tries, as NATO once did in Germany and 
Scain. That means going beyond the for- 

cers occupied professionally and out of 
politics. But Americans sympathetic to 
Eastern Europe are resisting funding for 
common military undertakings with Rus- 
sia and pushing for premature alliance. 

Military cooperation is a key to trans- 
forming Russia, which will make all of 
Europe more secure. Bolder leadership 
in the White House and the U.S. Con- 
gress will be needed, both to accomplish 
that delicate mission and to sell it to 
Russia’s nervous neighbors. 


Betrayal in Nigeria 

One year after Moshood Abiola appar- 
ently won Nigeria’s democratic presiden- 
tial election, only to watch as the military 
annulled the results, he is now facing 
charges that could send him to jail for 
life. Ells offense? He has decided to as- 
sume the office that was freely and fairly 
conveyed to him by the people. Nigerian 
military leaders, having never seen an 
election or popular ervnian leader in 33 
years of independence that they could 
stomach for very long, call Mr. Abiola’s 
decision an act of treason. It is they, 
however, who have betrayed their country. 

Each time a Nigerian military regime 
cuts down civilian rule, it is done with the 
promise of giving the people a new, im- 
proved and less fractious transition to de- 
mocracy. True to form, the current crop of 
generals has been following that tired old 
script to the letter since snuffing out the 
latest experiment with democracy. 

Two military regimes and one civilian 
puppet government have governed the 
country since June 1993, each promising 
another journey to the ballot box one day 
soon. Instead, what the soldiers have 
done is to take the people’s rights and 
dial liberties from them. Their chosen 
leader is being held incommunicado, a 
judge's order to produce him in court is 
-being ignored, human lights leaders, jour- 
nalists and former legislators have been 
arrested and hassled for political reasons. 

and the elected National Assembly has 
been outlawed. Having the power, the mil- 
itary has made a colossal mess of things. 

For all its wealth in oil, Nigeria is 
awash in red ink. Its creditors hold S33 
billion in IOUs. Through gross misman- 
agement and corruption, the once agri- 
culturally rich country suffers from 50 
percent unemployment and can no long- 
er feed itself. All the while, a man with no 
political base. General Sani Abacha, who 
has stood on the edges of power in recent 
years and who now openly parades as 
head of is taking a turn at enjoying 
the perquisites of power. He rides high 
now. But he will soon learn the lesson 
that other military strongmen have had to 
absorb, some the hard way: dissent can- 
not be crushed permanently. Nigeria's 
state of autocracy cannot survive. 

But pro-democracy Nigerians should 
not have to march alone. During the 
recent White House Conference on Afri- 
ca. CHnif in administration officials went 
out of their way to commit themselves to 
stronger ties with Africa. The national 
security adviser, Anthony Lake, spoke of 
leaving no doubt in the minds of Africa’s 
authoritarians that the United States in- 
sists on. a rapid transition to democracy, a 
return to civilian rule and respect for 
human rights. That message must be 
forcefully registered in Nigeria. 


Backward in Venezuela 

Venezuela, in the grip of a severe finan- 
cial crisis, is trying to control it with meth- 
ods that are making it dangerously worse. 
Last week President Rafael Caldera sus- 

■ pended a long list of constitutional guar- 
antees — a necessity, be claimed, to com- 
bat the dark forces attempting to destroy 
1 the country^ currency. He imposed con- 
trols on prices and foreign exchange in 

■ iesponse to rising inflation. Af ter a succes- 
’san of bazik faunres, he took over the 
whole banking system. The security forces 
‘have been carrying out raids on retailers 
accused of hoarding. The police have be- 
gun interrogating the regime's critics. 

The crisis has been caused by a kind of 
bad policy that is very famili ar in the 
continent’s history. Most of Latin Ameri- 
-ca, recognizing that nationalist p^iulism 
is a mistake, is now moving toward open 
economies and relatively free markets. 
Venezuela is the exception. The reasons 
have a lot to do with the country’s tradi- 
tions, and a lot to do with oiL In the years 
of high oil prices Venezuela has been able 
to afford the old ways of running the 
country. But prices have been down for 

with failed banks, is cumulative. 

The previous president, Carlos Andres 
Pfcrcz, tried to lead his country through 
the process that economists call adjust- 

ment, meaning a^ostment to the realities 
of the world economy. The fust reaction 
was a huge riot in Caracas, the second an 
attempted military coup by part of the 
army. Last year Mr. Pfcrez was dumped 
out of office, ostensibly on grounds of 
corruption, and new elections were held. 
The winner was Mr. Caldera, an unrecon- 
structed populist of the dd school with a 
strong inclination toward a government- 
managed economy. The results have in- 
cluded, predictably, a sharp rise in infla- 
tion and a drop in the currency's 
exchange rate, leading to last week's ex- 
plosion of intervention and police action. 

It is the latest example of the Latin 
tragedy — a country rich in natural re- 
sources and educated people who live 
atm d deep poverty and insecurity. Vene- 
zuela is now in the grip of political ideas 
that are deeply implicated in the poor 
economic performance of Latin America 
during the past two generations. Most 
Latins, reflecting rat that record, have 
deckled to move in another direction, but 
not, so far, Venezuela. Instead it seems to 
be increasing the zeal with which it em- 
braces a doctrine which, as its neighbors 
can testify, leads nowhere but down. Be- 
ing a rich country, it still has time to 
reconsider — but not unlimited time. 


Other Comment 

Tlie Hive and the Honey Bear 

American policy toward Eastern Eu- 
rope is aimed at reconciling two seeming- 
ly incompatible goals: filling the security 
vacuum by gradually integrating Russia's 
former sphere of influence into the West, 
while cultivating improved relations with 
Moscow. In other words, holding up the 
shaky East European beehive while keep- 
ing the honey-hungry Russian bear con- 

tented. Hence the West's refusal to accept 
the East European states as full members 
of NATO, at least for die time being, and 
symbolic gestures such as inviting Boris 
Yeltsin to attend the Group of Seven 
summit meeting. Unfortunately, whether 
that policy succeeds will depend on what 
kind of government eventually comes to 
power in Russia, something over which 
the West has little real influence.

T OKYO — China says ii needs a 
peaceful environment to be strong 
and prosperous, yet Beijing seems to be 
pursuing contradictory policies. It wants 
to participate in muftflataal economic 
and security arrangements in the Asia- 
Pacific region. At the same time, it is 
increasing its military power and trying 
to establish a mflilarDy dominant pos- 
tion in Asa by taking advantage of the 
current situation when the United States 
and Russia have cut back their aimed 
forces and defense budgets. One path is 
internationalist, the other nationalist. 

China’s self-confidence and assertive- 
ness have increased in line with the rapid 
growth of its economy since market-ori- 
ented ref rams were introduced in the late 
1970s. Where is China heading? Wfll it 
become a hegemonic power, establishing 
a new regional order under its control by 
rairfng advantage of the upper hand it has 
over its neighbors in size and power? 

Despite the fact that China and Japan 
have dose tics in virtually all fields, tbeir 
relationship remains essentially fragile.

Security Council, for it would weaken 
China’s influence in regional and global 
politics. This suggests that there is poten- 
tial for OrineseJapanese rivalry. 

Tokyo is trying to check the Chinese 
militar y buildup by hol ding out the pos- 
sibility of reducing its aid to China and 
by engaging in bilateral security talks to 
increase the level of m3ftaiy transparen- . 
cy. Japanese aid to China a being more 
carefully disbursed than before, so that it 
will riot be used for projects, such as prats 
and other mtgor infrastructure develop- 
ment, that have rmbtafy implications. In- ■ 
stead , more aid is being rfriarmded to. such, 
areas as reducing the add rain content of 
Chinese coal-fired power plants. 

There has been a pattern of China’s 
behavior toward its Asian neighbors in 
die last few years — one that seeks to 
secure a superior position over them. It 

can be seen in the asymmetrical levdsof 
official viators. Beijing tends to send . 

rqpon I th&oriit other East Asian states 
send to China. Beijing’s strategic interest 
is to beorane strong and prosperous so as 
to assert its own interests m relations 
with other Asian states. . . 

China appears to find it easier to han- 
dle Mongolia, North Korea, Vietnam, 
Cambodia, Laos and Burma than to han- 
dle other countries in the region. The. 
former are eoonoraicalfy and militarily 
‘much weaker than f~*hm a Raffing can. 
intimidate them with economic and mili- 
tary sanctions as it 1ms done in the past 
. With wealthier, stronger or more dis- 
tant East Arian nations, China cultivates 
cooperative links, hoping that these mil 
save to drive economic and political 
wedges between those countries and the 
United States: This does not mean that 
Beqing itself wants no cooperative rela- 
tions with Washington. It is trying to 
build better relations with America. 
However, China also wants to minimiz e 
the paaribiliiy off having to compromise 
its own economic and security interests. 

China’ s desire to secure a superior po- 
sition over its neighbors has been rein- 
forced by remarkable economic success 
and the absence of dear, united resis- 
. lance from East Ada n countries. As a 
result, Beijing’s political sdf-confidcacc 
has been strengthened mid it has behaved 

more assertively with its neighbors m 
ter ritorial and other disputes. .

To China From Germany , a Lesson in Unrepressed Democracy 

B ERLIN — The visit to Ger- 
many last week by li Peng, 
China’s prime minister, has cast 
modi light on prospects for de- 
mocracy in the two countries, 
both notable for failed attempts 
at liberal representative rule that 

By Robert Elegant 

led to harsh dictatorship. 
Despite a small but raucous 

Nazi past behind and dearly 
established a working democra- 
cy that wiQ be sustained into 
the future. But China is further 
from democracy than it was 
even 60 years ago. 

Mr. Li tested the democratic 
will of the Germans — and it 
emerged trium phan t. 

The man responsible for order- 
ing the massacre pro-democra- 
cy demonstrators in Bering just 
over five years ago is evidently 

allergic to public dsmnrutfTaticm*. 

cn three oas»OT^^<jranany 
and finally Irft the country earlier 
than planned because he was ex- 
posed to public heckling and the 
threat of such bedding. 

The Chinese prime minister 
thus proved himself to be what 
the Germans call a Mimose Ele- 

fant, someone who rides rough- 
shod over others but is hyper- 
sensitive himarif- And, 88 the 
Gennan press reported with 
some satisfaction, he undoubt- 
edly lost face by running away. 

Not, of course, that anyone, 
even the most hardened politi- 
cian, would be pleased by ban- 
ners with slogans like these, in 
Chinese and German: "Over- 
throw the Chinese Communist 
Butcher!’* and *Ti Peng is a 
Mass Murderer.** 

The fact that the charges are 
completely accurate did not 
help make them more palat- 
able. Neither did the fact that 
Li Peng crushed the Tiananmen 
protests with tanks and has sub- 
sequently conducted a witch- 
hunt against dissidents precise- 
ly to avoid seeing similar 
demonstrations in Ghinw. 

The German government did 
nothing to halt the demoastrar 
tians. Officials stood aloof and 
neutraL Several even stressed 
rtiAt Germany does not 
in bloody supp res si on of dissent. 

The temptation to quash the 

iWwimw twij ^n jpost n on e t hele s s 
have been strong. Just coming 
out of a recession, Germany is 
counting on large sales to Coma 
to accelerate its recovery. 

The impressive group of Chi- 
na specialists in the Gennan 
Foreign Ministry knows full wefl 
that Beijing does not separate 
politics and trade. To the con- 
trary, it unabashedly uses its 
economic leverage as a poten- 
tially huge w te ig i n g market to 
attain political goals. It has done 
so, for example, with France, 
Britain and the Netherlands in 
the recent past. 

It would not have been easy 
for an undoubtedly democratic 
Germany to ni™* the demon- 
strations against Mr. Li. It was 
nearly impossible to contem- 
plate such supp ress ion in the 
race of an aroused public. That 
virtual impossibility is, of 
course, the best proof that Ger- 
man democracy has come a long 
way horn the past. 

Li Peng ana his advisers am- 
ply do not understand that the 
German government could do 

little or nothing to keep him 
from being ynsnited in public. 
No matter how many times the 
concept and practice of free ex- 
pression tag explained to those 
autocrats of the left, they cannot 
grasp the principle. 

It was doubtless undignified 
of Mr. Ii to flee to Romania, 
whose ruler was a student in 
Moscow^ when he was also 
studying there. It would, how- 
ever, in Chinese fyes and par- 

tiraiaH y fn (Irni wat r /wnmiiii<H 

eyes, have been even more un- 
dignified for Lfm to submit 
meekly to public insults. 

Regardless of what happens 
to Mr. Li, for whom so many 
Chinese wish nothmg but sor- 
row; democracy has deariy not 
begun to take root in China. Mr. 
Ii and his comrades are busBy 
pulling up any shoots of green 
that may appear. To them, such

There is no tfacEtion of popu-

Let’s Be Gear: Not One Europe but a New Westand a New East i ^ 

H AMBURG — Russia Signed 
two agreements last month 
intended to cement its new rela- 
tionship with the West: the 
“Partnership for Peace” with 
NATO and the “Partnership and 
Cooperation Agreement” with 
the European Union. Now it has 
taken partin the Group of Seven 
meeting of leading industrial na- 
tions at Naples. 

Russian and Western leaders 
have lulled these events, once 
more, as the end of Russia's long 
isolation from the democratic 
West. And yet Europe is drifting 
apart, and all the wonderful 
warm words of partnership 
merely expose the new divide. 

Russia’s foreign minister, An- 
drei Kozyrev, staled the problem 
succinctly whoa he told Itar-Tass, 
“It is more difficult for an ele- 
phant like Russia to get through 
the door than fra a snail poodle.” 

Russia, in fact, does not fit into 
either of the Western institutions 
that have any substance of power 
today, NATO and the European 
Union. Both would collapse un- 
der the wdght of the elephant. If 

Christoph Bertram 

the Group of Seven or Eight can 
afford Moscow’s participation it 
is because, contrary to public 
myth, it is a debating dub, not a 
derision-making body. 

Russia itself has realized that 
there is no room frait in dither of 
the or gan iz at ions in which the 
West makes up its collective mind. 

The basic trends are 
becoming visible and can 
nc longer be bhared by 
convenient ambiguities. 

In the run-up to the various Part- 
nership signing ceremonies, Boris 
Yeltsin so longer pushed fra Rus- 
sian, me m b w sh ffi out instead tried 
to subject these institutions to a 
European superstructure, the Con- 
ference on Security and Coopera- 
tion in Europe, in winch Moscow 
would have a blocking vole. 

Hie Russians will continue to 

try, but their heart is no longer in 
it- In Brussels, Mr. Kozyrev ac- 
cepted that sooner rather than 
later some of Russia's former 
Warsaw Pact allies woidd join the 
Western security dub. He plead ed 
only that tiie extension proceed 
with care, since the Russian popu- 
lation needed convincing that the 
alliance was not planning “a tri- 
umphant march eastward.” . 

. So it is time to face the facts. 
There wifi be no overarching, aB- 
e n c o m pa sang security system in 

Europe. NATO vrin not xndt into 
a CSCE spanning from Vladivos- 
tok to Vancouver. 

I n stea d, two separate groups 
are emerging. 

The European Union and 
NATO are gradually incorporat- 
ing Eastern Europe, jnchufing tiie 
Baltic stales. At the same time, a 
duster of framer Soviet republics 
is taking shape around Russia.

The Voices of America Are Disgusted 

T ONGMEADOW, Massacbn- 
J-j setts — Preside nt Bill Clin- 
ton has discovered that talk ra- 
dio is a two-edged sword. 

In the 1992 campaign, it be- 
came obvious that Mr. Clinton 
had a flair for the format. He 
scored points by going on pro- 
grams hke the New York-based 
Turns in the Morningf and com- 
ing across as an affable bubba. 
But since then he has learned 
that talk-show hosts (and their 
caflers) can play handball, and he 
doesn't like it a bit 

The president was anything 
bat affable in an appearance on 
a SL Louis talk show two weeks 
ago when the hosts asked him 
some tough questions about his 
and his staff’s ethics. All but 
shouting, he denounced the 
questions and accused conser- 
vative talk-show hosts such as 

Kusn umoaugn « keeping up a 
“constant, unremitting drum- 
beat of cynkasm.” 

That same week, in an inter- 
view in my magazine, Mr. Clin- 
ton's adviser George Stephano- 
pouks Masted talk radio’s “tear 
it down” mentafity and warned 
that the administration might 
move to revive the fairness doc- 
trine, the old federal rule that 
broadcasters must cover all 
prints of view on an issue. 

Mr. Stcphanqpotdos knows 
very wdl that the doctrine, wfakh 
Congress repealed seven years 

By Michael Harrison 

ago, would stifle talk shows. 
Many stations would cancel a 
p ro gram like Mr. limbaugh’s 
rather rtw*i twin- op ai rtime with 
countervailing liberal views. 

Mr. CBntan and other critics 
of talk radio — including tiie 
mainstream press, whose ac- 
counts are often tinged with 
skepticism and outright hostility 
— are misting two basic paints. 

Hist, talk radio's nature is to 
be freewheeling even at times to 
the point of inaccuracy. It fen’ t 
as if such offenses went unpun- 
ished. Mr. Limbangh, in partic- 
ular, is coining under the wide- 
spread criticism that comes with 
a position as powerful as his. 
That land of debate is what the 
First Amendment is all about 

Second, even if the next pres- 
dent of the United States is a 
squeaky dean, God-fearing conr 
servative Repubfican, you can be 
sure that be or she 'frill continue 
to take the bashing being en- 
dured by Mr. Clin ton. That is 
because most of the sentiment 
on talk radio is not so much - 
conservative as independent. 

We are hi-armg the infant 
voice of a movement that is 
disgusted with the kind of pres- 
ident the system ccotinne* to 
serve up. 

The voice of talk radio is dis- 

gusted with ex c e ssiv e taxation 
and intrusion into personal and 
business Kfc by the bureaucratic 
federal go v e rnm ent. It wants to 
put an end to excessive govern- 
ment spending and arr og ant 
rufing-exass aristocracy- It is 
and corruption. 

It has had it with welfare 
fraud and tiie invasion off illegal 
immigration eating up tax d d- 
lars. It is fed tro with the coddling 
of criminah. tiie distorted, justice 
system, the lockstep sameness of 

the wjkiart nwlin and the drrnih - 

ingri America's children. It is no 
longer intimidated Ity tiie intol- 
erance of political conectness. 

It feds that an insidious war* 
is bring waged against tire aver- 
age hardworking, law-abiding 
American dtirm draining the 
middle class of its wealth and 

Unreasonable? Naive? Half- 
baked? Perhaps But very, very 

cnee agam, a Jmeof comromamm. 

By implying that any . differ- 
ences can be o v ercome by vague 
partnership rhetoric, tiie west is 
looEng rtsrif as wdl as Russia. 
Afraid to admit the truth. West- 
em governments will cfinglb am- 
biguity. But ambiguity has ceased 
to be creative; it has become 
. counterproductive. By pretend- 
ing that somehow Rnssia can still

Western chib, tiie West leaves 
an democracies in the dark about 
tbeir future stamsin Europe. 

The proper response to Rus- 
sia’s inability to fit into any of the 
existing institutions is not to 
makebriieve that somehow it can ' 
be squeezed in but ratiier to cre- 
ate a new one,^ specifically de- 
signed to coordinate policies and 
preempt crises between the new 
west and the sew East. This 
would have to consist of ranch, 
more thm (be biannual meetings 
envisaged by the Rnsaan-EXl 
agreement or the vaporous can- 
saltation pledge given fay NATO 
in the Partnership fra Peace 

It should consist off a formal 
structure, tiie more formal file 
better, b etw een NATO and Rus- 
sia, with a secretariat, permanent 
representatives, hot lines mid 
even parliamentary bodies — ev- 
erything that can ensure day-to- 
day dialogue and consultation. It 
would give neither side a veto 
over what the other one wants to 
do, bat it would translate NA- 
TO’s apt formula “No veto, no 
surprise!” into credSbie practice.

To.gjve up the dream of “one 
Eincpe whole and free” does not 
mean to forgo the right to. hold 
Russia to estabtished rules ^ within 
its qihere of influence. On the 
contrary. But Russia can be held 
to these rules only if the West 
itself is serious about them. 

The ament practice of warn- 
ing Russia not to intervene in the 
“near abroad” while at the same 
time^ turning down requests fra 
sending BMin imiiig troops to che 
many trouble spots in the region 
is a dismal example of Western 

: The West's authority in the 
new European security setup will

its deeds. Preaching without fol- 
lowing through signals to Mos- 
cow that the West really cries 
neither for Russia nor for how 
Russia conducts itself in what 
was once the Soviet Union. 

When the walls came down in 
Europe five years ago, the way 
ahead was obscure. It was wise 
then fra the West to temporize. 
Today the. baric trends are be- 
coming viable, and they can no 
kntger be camouflaged by conve- 
nient ambiguities. 

There is now a historic chance 
and need to build the future of 
European security on a sound ba- 
sk. That takes realism as wdl as 
vision, darity of purpose as wdl 
as a seme of responsibility. Too

QVC, CBS and Disney? 

By Geraldine Fabrikant 
with Bernard Weinraub 

New York Times Sendee 

NEW YORK —When the boards of CBS 
Inc. and QVC Network Inc. meet Tuesday 
and Wednesday to vote on a merger of the 
two companies, Wall Street and Hollywood 
executives say, the Walt Disney Co. may 
emerge as a wild card in the deal. 

Ever since the merger announcement near- 
ly two weeks ago — and even before — many 
people in the television industry have been 
looking at Disney as a logical fit with a 
broadcast network. 

CBS has been at the center of speculation 
about Disney because the network has been in 
play, and because its lade of a cable television 
connection and its loss of professional football 
to Fox have been seen as major liabilities. 

“People think Disney might jump in bo- 
cause Disney has longed for a network outlet 
for a long time and has the expertise to 
manage a network,” said Harold Vogel, a 
media analyst who follows Disney for Merrill 
Lynch & Co. “This is a relatively easy way to 
get into both cable and network.” 

Why Disney? 

Even though it may be better known for its 
theme paries and movies, Disney is a leading 
producer of network programming, including 
ABCs “Home Improvement,” the most pop- 
ular scries on American television this season. 
But Eke other independent programmers. 

Rumors have been circulating in the enter- 
tainment industry that Disney may be about 
to strike some sort of network partnership. 
Executives at CBS and QVC have denied the 
talk, and Disney executives have refused to 
comment on whether the company is plan- 
ning a strategic move into broadcasting. 

But many in the industry think there is a 
strong rationale for an alliance between Dis- 
ney and a network. 

Getting shows onto the networks is a dicey 
business for producers, and it is getting harder. 
The networks, once denied the right to produce 
and syndicate their own programs, have in 
recent years been unshackled by the Federal 
Communications Commission. By November 
1995, they will be able not only to produce 
programs but also to sell rerun rights in the 
syndication market in the United States. 

The networks are also increasing in-house 
production, which could make it more diffi- 
cult for companies such as Disney to get their 
own shows on air. 

Big-Time Lobbying 

Disney may soon find itself at a disadvantage 
because federal 

rules are rapidly changing to 
let the networks produce and distribute more 
of the programs they broadcast. 

Disney spent more than $444,000 on lobby- 
ing to win a $163 milli on subsidy for its 
proposed theme park from the Virginia Legis- 
lature. According to disclosure forms released 
Friday, Disney paid out as much money for 
lobbying in Richmond in the last year as the 
next five biggest spenders combined. The 
company spent four times as much as the 
main opponent of its park, the Piedmont 
Environmental Counril. whose spending to- 
taled about $106,000.

Kim’s Death Puts Markets on Edge 

By Steven Brull 

International Herald Tribune 

SEOUL — Rumors of North 
Korean leader Kim II Sung’s 
demise have swept through the 
South Korean bourse dozens of 
times in the past decade, invari- 
ably sending the index higher 
on the view that reunification of 
the peninsula would be a plus 
for South Korea’s economy. 

But on Monday morning, in 
the stock market’s first reaction 
to the news that Mr. Kim had 
died last week, shares plummet- 
ed. The consensus now is that 
political turmoil north of the 
border could pose major risks 
for South Korea, including a 
sudden reunification that 
would deal an economic blow 

Eke the one borne by Germany 
after its reunification. 

SHIT, after an initial plunge of 
more than 2 percent, the Korea 
Composite Stock Price Index 
steadily recovered and closed 
Monday’s session just 7.54 
points lower, at 948.84, in active 

The modest decline under- 
scored growing confidence 
among South Korean investors 
that North Korea would make a 
smooth transfer of power, most 
likely to Kim Jong u. the eldest 
son of Mr. Kim. 

The market’s reaction also re- 
flected the timing of the news of 
Kim B Sung's death on Friday, 
which was announced here on 
Saturday, just after the stock 

market had gained 7.42 points in 
a half-day session. Dining the 
interval, there were indications 
that Kim Jong D was consolidat- 
ing power and that Seoul's re- 
sponse was swift and collected. 

“h was very well-timed,” said 
James Oborae. bead of research 
at W. I. Carr in Seoul. “Kim II 
Sung must have had the inter- 
ests of the slock market in 
min d" 

The market's tone also un- 
derscored the momentum of a 
rally, which has made Seoul's 
bourse among the most dynam- 
ic in Asia. Over the past two 
years, the main index has more 
than doubled, and many think 
it could rise 25 percent more 
before the end of this year. 

Powering the advance is a 
South Korean economy that 
has regained its famed vigor: 
gross national product jumped 
8.8 percent in the first quarter 
— the highest rate since 1991. 
Many economists expect 
growth for the full year to reach 
8 percent, a sharp improvement 
from last year's 5.6 percent. 

The strong yen is the biggest 
reason for the surge. Industries 
in which South Korea competes 
head-to-head against Japan — - 
notably electronics and electri- 
cal machin ery, cars and ships, 
steel and petrochemicals — 
suddenly have become very 
price competitive. Exports in 

See KOREA, Page 9 

months, the highest price since 
eariy 1991. Traders said $1,600 
was the next target. Spot alumi- 
num rose to $142330 a ion 
from $1,512. 

Prices now stand 50 percent 
above last autumn's eight-year 
lows, when a recession-hit mar- 
ket had more metal than it 
could use. Extra metal was also 
coming from Russia, which, 
desperate for foreign exchange 
and faced with the evaporation 
of domestic demand, exported 
hundreds of thousands of tons. 

But the world’s major produc- 
ers earlier this year agreed 10 cut 
back their output to try to help 
prices which, in many cases, had 
fallen below the cost of produc- 

“It is all coming good at the 
moment — stocks are down, 
people need metal, and they 
can’t get hold of it where they 
want it,” one dealer said. 

The International Primary 
Aluminium Institute said total 
stocks in May fell 64,000 tons, 
to 348 million, down 3.7 per- 
cent from its February peak. 

A clear sign of the growing 
demand for aluminum, analysts 
say. is rising prices for delivery 
of the metal in the near-term, 
which in some cases are now 
higher than prices for more dis- 
tant delivery date.

WTO Will Be a Benevolent Patrolman 

By Reginald Dale 

International Herald THbtme , 

W ASHINGTON ' — Interna- 
tional conspiracy, theorists 
in Washington ate putting 
about a new scare: Secret 
conclaves of bureaucrats, many from de- 
veloping countries hostile to America, 
arc about to take over the world trading 
system. Delegates from places Eke Bur- 
ma and Cuba will impose their win on 
the United States, preventing it from 
enacting its own laws to protect the envi- 
ronment and the health of its population. 
— even from raising its own.taxe& 

national sovereignty arouses strong oppo- 
sition — particularly in a U4. Congress 
amtious to goatd its right to conduct trade 
policy. So, as the ad min i s tration tries to 
persuade Congress to ratify the latest 
world trade agreement, which sets up the is laving to be a little decdtrul on 
the sovereignty issue. 

But the WTO’s opponents are being 
deceitful too, disingenuously arguing the 

will be laimcbed by the new WoridTiMe 

Organization that is to start operations 
next year, probably in Geneva, as mooro- 
sor to the General Agreement on Tariffs 
and TYade. 

Equally fetventiy, "WPjJ? 

WTO including the U.S. administration, 
argue’ that itwul not dimin i s h the coun- 
try's sovereignty over its own affairs y 
one iota. 

Both are wrong. 

The WTO is not the monster portrayed 
bv its opponents bat. Eke many other 
international treaties and ^reemaits, it 
does impinge on U.S. sovereignty. The 
point is that it is well worthwhile to saca- 
fiee a little autonomy to gain the WTOs 
benefits, which will be considerable. . 

It is difficult, however, far the WTO's 
supporters to make this 
Washington, where any perceived loss of 

The linked Stales can only 
gain as more countries are re* 
qoired to play by the same 

control over its currency. As traditional 
economic barriers fall, policy instru- 
ments that used to be of solely domestic 
concern can be used to impede trade. 

U.S. rules on automobile fuel efficien- 
cy , for example, are legitimate grounds 
for complaint if they discriminate a- 
gainst imported cars that are engineered 
to a different standard, as the European 
Union is currently alleging in GATT. 

It will certainly be possible to chal- 
lenge many such practices in the WTO — 
which does not mean, of course, that the 

o r ganiza tion could actually be rqected 
without upsetting the rest of the agree- 

That is amply wrong. Washington’s 
acceptance of the WTO was an essential 
pari of the final package deal struck in 
Geneva last December and it cannot be 

Nor is it true the United States is going 
to be pushed around by . the Ekes of Cuba 
and Borina. The way the WTO makes 
decision* will not be a fl that much differ- 
ed from GATT, and the United States, as 

the world's largest economy, is certainly 
going to its ample weight. 

What is true, on the other hand, is that 
all nations axe losing sovereignty as the 
world economy goes global. Even the 
United States, for instance, has little 

tenges, it will no longer be posable 
for Washington — or anyone else, for 
that matter — to veto the outcome. That 
is one of the real transfers of power to the 
new organization. Another is that U.S. 
use of unilateral trade action, and retali- 
ation, win be much restricted. 

The point is that these are all very 
good thing s, it is good for everyone, 
including the United States, if Con- 
gress’s protectionist tendencies, and its 
fondness for unilateral bullying, are re- 
strained. In fact, it was the United States, 
which brings the most trade complaints, 
that quite rightly wanted to end the na- 
tional veto over GATT rulings. 

The United States, arguably the 
world's most open economy, can only 
gain as more countries are required to 
'ay by the same rules. It should be 
to have a stronger policeman to 
force those rules, even if it has to obey 
them itself.

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks 
fell for. the Em time in three 
days, tracking losses in bonds 
ana the dollar, as signs of rising 
interest rates overwhelmed op- 
timism about second-quarter 

PHming s 

A slump in drug shares, led 
by Eli Lilly & Co., paced the 
stock market’s retreat 
"Stocks and bonds are run- 
ning in tandem,” said Robert 
von Pen tz, chief investment of- 

U.S. Stocks 

ficer at Riggs Investment Man- 
agement Coro. “That probably 
means the ability for earnings 
to impact the direction of the 
stock market is far more muted 
than the ability of interest 

As interest rates rise, cash 
equivalents such as Treasury 
bills become more competitive 
with stocks. Higher rates also 
raise corporate borrowing costs 
and rfimtnish earnings. 

The Dow Jones industrial av- 
erage, which fell as much as 
28.49 points, pared its losses to 
close down 6.15 points, at 

Eleven stocks fell for every 
nine that rose on the New York 

on the Big Board, down from 
233.62 mifii on on Friday. 

Stocks fell as the yield on the 
Treasury’s benchmark 30-year 
bond jumped five basis points, 
to 7.75 percent, and the dollar 
sank. As long as the dollar is 
weakening, foreign investors 
are likely to avoid U.S. bonds 
fen- fear of currency losses. 

Bonds, already unnerved by 
the stronger-thaa-cxpectcd em- 
ployment figures on Friday, fell 
amid nervousness about this 
week’s reports on wholesale 
prices, consumer prices and re- 
tail sales that might signal more 
inflati on and higher interest

than one analyst recalled the 
dramatic tom engineered by 
Paul A. Vokkerin 1979 when as 
Fed chairman he deliberately 
shocked markets into recogniz- 
ing he would let interest rates go 
sky high to end inflatio n 
“Things are nowhere near that 
bad, but the first law of holes 
when you get into one is to stop 
digging." said Geoffrey Bed. 
who runs his own New York 

Foreign Exchange 

consulting firm and is executive 
secretary of the Group of 30, a 
bankers’ study group. 

“The U.S. now is competing 
for capital with other nations. 
The Fed has to stop these 
mealy-mouthed quarter-point 
moves and get rates up.” he 

said, adding that only then 
would interest in the Treasury 

would interest in the Treasury 
bond market be rekindled. 

The price of the benchmark 
30-year Treasury bond fell Mon- 
day, losing 10/32 point, to 83. 
That raised its yield to 7.72 per- 
cent from 7.69 percent Friday. 

Nicholas Saxgpn, of Pruden- 

tial Global Fixed Income Advi- 
sors. said that in the past few 
years, he has led pension fund 
clients into foreign bonds for 
higher yields but kept about one- 
third of his clients’ money in 
dollars. Now only about IS per-

“The Fed has got to get ahead 
of market expectations, «tiH then 
we’ll discuss it,” he said. “The

dollar policy. Right now it sim- 
ply seems to be open warfare on 
exchange-rate policy." 

Mr. Clinton tried repeatedly 
at Naples to dispel the impres- 
sion his administration wanted a 
cheaper dollar as a weapon 
against Japan in trade negotia- 
tions and be repeated the reas- 
surance in Bonn on Monday.

Prices have now risen five- 
fold since the beginning of last

slump from the late 1980s when 

an international wgmcmcot to

Mr. Onchere called for a re- 
turn to an international agree- 
ment that would have the eco- 
nomic teeth to lend stability to 
coffee prices, something he said 
the free market could not do. 

Analysts said BrazH’s output 
in the next year could fall to 
about half of the originally fore- 
cast crop.

flas SEAT Been Saved? 


MADRID — Spain’s 
agreement to help rail out 
.VoQswagcn AG’s troubled 
SEAT umt is a case study, say 
some analysts, in bow to 
sqpeecea government. 

After ax months of hag- 
gling, VW President Fercfi- 
nand PiBch and Spanish Min- 
ister of Industry and Energy 
Juan Manuel Eguiagaray 
hammered out the accord, 

. under which the Spanish gov- 
ernment win spend 30 biffioo 
pesetas ($230 million), osten- 
sibly to fund research and de- 
velopmcnl projects at SEAT. 

Fbr ^pam, which main- 
tained throughout the fatka 
that it 'would not give SEAT 
direct subsidies in’ help fi- 
nance layoffs, the tariff was 
the price necessary to ensure 
the company's survival as an 
independent brand, after re- 
peated threats by the Ger- 
mans to turn it mto a VW 
production line: 

Far Volkswagen, the pack- 
age fra way cl recouping a 
fraction of SEATs $1.1 b3- 
lion in 1993 losses, virtually 
afr of the German carmaker’s 

"With this deal the future 
of SEAT is assured,” said Ra- 
fael Casas, a spokesman for 
the Span i sh carmaker. 

The deal was to be signed 
Monday night 

The accord also ends a pro- 
tracted tug-of-war between 
the government of Prime 
Minister Felipe’ Gans&kz and 
the directors of VW. The gov- 
ernment had maintained that 
direct subsidies violated Euo- 
pean Union directives against 
government bailouts. 

' With Spain suffering under 
a 24 percent unemployment 
rate, the government had 
balked at putting up money 
to cover the cost of layoffs 
that VW was mandating at 

But Volkswagen knew it 
bad the upper hand in the 
negotiations, analysts 
sairLMr. GonzAlez heads a 
minority government and 

needed the support of Catalo- 
nia. the autonomous region in 
which SEAT and its work- 
force are located. That sup- 
port that might have disap- 
peared if SEAT did. 

The decision that Spain 
would finance research and 
development, many claim, is a 
gambit that allowed Spam to 
save face and VW to save 
money. “It was just a way of 
disguising the subsidy” said 
Simon Rosado, secretary gen- 
eral erf the metals federation of 
Comi&ktnes Obrears, one of 
Spam's principal labor unions. 

Meanwhile, the Volks- 
wagen production and pur- 

chasing chief, Jo6& Ignacio 
L6pez de Arriornta, said the 
accord would be a help but 
not enough in itself. 

“The company has some 
very competitive products, 
and the deal is a big help, but 
the important thing is a funda- 
mental f h «m gr that must take 
place within the company.'’ 

Mr. L6pez de Arriortua, 
speaking at a university semi- 
nar, said SEAT must direct 
its attention more towards 
client satisfaction, improving 
the quality of hs products and 
the service it provides. 

In addition to the 30 billion 
pesetas from Madrid. SEAT 
will receive 8 billion pesetas 
from the government of Cata- 
lonia. (Bloomberg, Reuters)

Bloomberg Business Newt 

PRAGUE — Semens AG, the Goman elec- 
tronics company, said Monday that operating 
profit for the financial year ending on Sept. 30 
would fall as much as 15 percent from the prior- 
year levd because of price deterioration and 
stagnating sales. 

Noting that prices in some areas had fallen by 
10 percent or more, Chief Executive Heinrich 
von Piecer said at a press conference in the Czech 
capital that set income was "under pressure,” 
even though sales had risen 33 percent in the 
first eight months of the current financial year. 

Karl-Elermann Baumann, the company's chid 
financial officer, said that net income would 
nevertheless be ‘just under the results from last 
year” because profit would be boosted by one- 
time gains from the sale of the company’s pace- 
maker activities. 

In the previous year, Siemens' net profit had 
edged up 1 percent, to 1.98 bilfion Deutsche 
mirks ($1 26 trillion). The company has warned 
on a number of occasions that net earn mgs 
would drop in the cur rent year. 

Siemens’ share price reacted little to the news, 
edging up 50 pfennig, to 655 DM. 

Mr. von Pierer said that Germany’s economic 
recovery was not expected to boost Siemens’s 
«t rmngs until the 1994-1995 financial year. “We 
know that electrical engineering and electronics 
are always at the end OF the business cycle.” 

Mr. von Pierer said that the costs of shutting a 
nuclear fuel plant in Hanan had weighed on 
naming s this year but that the semiconductor 
business was making a profit for the first time in 
a decade and was expected to finish the financial 
year in the black 

The company said it expected to double sales 
in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union 
by next year. In the current fm$»nri«l year, new 
orders in the region were expected to exceed 2 
billian DM, or about 5 percent of the company’s 
foreign business. 

With 7D Semens subsidiaries and more than 
13,000 employees throughout the region, the com- 
pany already is well established but faces formida- 
ble obstacles to further expansion in many coun- 
tries in the region, Mr. von Pierer said. 

New Chief 
Of Finance 
Dual Rands 


Liebenberg, who is to take over 
as finance minis ter of South Af- 
rica in October, said Monday 
he would try to reduce the 
country’s budget deficit and 
move away from the country’s 
dual-currency system. 

“South Africa has been so suc- 
cessful in re-entering the world 
political arena, and now we most 
also get back into the finan cial 
world arena successfully,” Mr. 
Liebenberg said. “We must do 
tins by achieving what the inter- 
national markets and agencies 
see as reasonable and fair.” 

He said the budget deficit bad 
to be cut in order for the coun- 
try’s Reconstruction and Devel- 
opment Progr am — its post- 
apartheid blueprint — to work 
The deficit for 1994-95 is fore- 
cast to be 63 percent of gross 
domestic product. 

“All of us have agreed it’s got 
to be a lost lower, so the focus 
will be still on less government 
consumption,” he said. 

The International Monetary 
Fund has accepted South Afri- 
ca’s current budget deficit level 
but has urged the country to 
push it toward the more respect- 
able level of 3 percent of GDP. 

South African officials have 
said they were concerned a high 
budget deficit would propel in- 

Mr. liebenberg also strongly 
criticized the dual-currency sys- 
tem, which has been in place 
ance 1990, and said abolishing 
the system would be studied. 

“Ultimately, we have to have 
a unitary currency and forex 
controls that are accepted as the 
norm by international players,” 
he said. “You want to do that to 
enhance investment rather than 
to present an opportunity for 
you to withdraw your money.” 

The South African govern- 
ment will have to prove that 
and its economic philosophies 
are sustainable before a free 
foreign exchange regime can be 
implemented, he said. 

Derek Keys, the current fi- 
nance minister, resigned last 
week, effective in October. Ha 
cited personal reasons.

Compiled by Our Stiff Awn Dispatches 

PARIS — Virgin Group has joined a consortium that is bidding 
to design, build and operate the high-speed rail link between 
London and the Channel Tunnel and to operate sendees from

l /wrinn & Continental Railways is one of four groups planning 
to bid for the $2.7 billion ($4 billion) franchise. Its members 
include Bechtel Group, the U.S. construction company, S. G. 
Warburg & Co., the investment firm, the National Express bus

Cautioned from Page 7 

these sectors, which comprise 
about 60 percent of South Ko- 
rea's total, jumped 14.6 percent 
in the first quarter of 1994, ac- 
cording to Jardine Fleming Se- 
curities. The economy also has 
benefited from strong demand 
from the United States, Europe 
and other regions. 

IF anything, the risk now is 
that South Korea’s economy 
might overheat next year, 
| boosting inflation and interest 
rates and undermining the 
stock market's climb. 

To be sure, the Sooth Korean 
market remains among the risk- 
iest in the world. North Korea 
is among the most isolated 
countries in the world, then is 
little hard information on Kim 
Jong ZL and it is impossible to 
rule out the prospect of political 
collapse ana cm] war, possibly 

Most of the selling on Mon- 
day came from individuals, 
whose share of the market has 
been in steady decline in recent 
years. Domestic and foreign in- 
stitutions, in contrast, appear to 
accept the government’s expec- 
tation of continuity in econom- 
ic policies that have allowed 
South Korean businessmen to 
visit the north and engage in 
limited trade and investment. 
“There’s no real basis for pro- 

I dieting that the policy that the 
new leadership will pursue will 

be radically different,” Foreign 
Minister Han Sung Joo of 
South Korea said Monday. 

Foreign analysts said de- 
clines on the Korean stock mar- 
ket could provide a good oppor- 
tunity to buy shares. The 
Finance Ministry restricts for- 
eign ownership to 10 percent of 
most issues, but it has indicated- 
it mil raise this limit in two 
stages to 15 percent by the mid- 
dle of 1995. 

The increase coold lower the 
premium foreign investors now 
pay to acquire shares of compa- 
nies traded on an informal tele- 
phone market. The most attrac- 
tive issues, such as Fohang Iron 

& Sted Co. and Samsung Elec- 
tronics, are trading at premi- 
ums erf 20 percent to 30 percent, 
while Korea Mobile Telecom 
has reached a premium of as 
high as 90 percent, analysts 

But tbe benefits of the higher 

limits to foreign investors may 
be fflusoiy because tbe Finance 
Ministry plans to give a “warn- 
ing period” before the ratio is 
increased. “The purpose,” one 
foreign analyst said, “is to allow 
domestic institutions to bid up 
shares and fleece the foreigners/’

prices and a strengthening Aus- 
tralian dollar combined to slash 
first-half profit by 50 percent at 
Alcoa oT Australia Ltd., the 

world s leading producer of alu-

Although Alcoa predicted an 
eventual improvement in its 
proftabibty* it said the r emain. 
der of the year would be diffi- 
cult The ahtminum industry has 
been suffering from oversupply 
but using demand linked to nn- 
provingworid economies and an 
international agreement to re- 
duce supplies are expected to 
boost profitability. ' 

Alcoa said its profit in the 
first half fell 52 percent, to 
2 24.7 million Australian dollars 
($91 miffion) from 255.4 nrifficra 
in the first six months of 1993, 
whoa earnings were boosted by 
a 59.7 million dollar gain relat- 
ed to reduced tax rates. 

Profit excluding one-time 
gains fell by 37 percent in the 
.latest period as sales fdl to 9823 
r million dollars froco lJ37b£Dion. 

The reduced profit was due 
mainly to lower U.S. dollar 
prices for the company’s prod- 
uces and lower sales volumes for 
aluminum and gold. A strong 
Austr alian dollar, which Ip- - 
duces revenue expressed in die 
local currency, also had an ad- 
verse impact, the company said.

JVC Says Goodbye to Hollywood 

Electronics Company Shuns the Risks of Making Movies 

Bktcmberg Business News 

TOKYO —Five years ago, Victor Co. 
of Japan led a charge by Japanese elec- 
trodes makera into the glamorous world 
. of movies when it earmarked $100 rml- 
Hon to set up a Hollywood production 
and distribution company. 

Now,. Victor, a video equipment mak- 
.er better known as JVC, has quietly 
1 slipped out of the director’s chair. In- 
stead erf malting films, it is just distribut- 
ing them. 

JVC, trying to return to the black after 
two consecutive years .of .losses, reorga- 
nized its Hollywood strategy after judg- 
ing that the costs and risks involved in 
making movies were too high. 

The decision reflects the difficulties* 
faced by Japm’sefcctrooics comp ani es is 
the competitive world of motion pictures. 

JVC’s California subsidiary. Largo En- 
tertainment, had successes like "Unlawful 
Entry” and "Point Break.” Kit the Japa- 
nese parent wanted to find a surer way erf 
making money in Hollywood. 

“Midring films is the most risky part of 
the mooe business, because you don’t 
know if you will wind up with a good pro- 
duct until you’re actually done with it,” 
said Rybmdbi Asada, a JVC spokesman. 

JVC&consoiidated net loss widened to 
2 65 billion yen ($272 mDHon) in the year 
ended Mann 31 from 255 billion yea the 

for films in international markets, in- 
cluding Japan. 

"Distribution carries a small risk, be- 
cause you make a decision on whether to 
go with a movie after you’ve actually 
seen it,” Mr. Asada said. 

Mr. Asada added that JVC’s retreat 
from distribution in North America was 
tied to its derision to stop making films. 

Distribution is safer 
'because yon make a 
decision on whether to 
go with a movie after 
you’ve actually seen it’ 

Kyoto chi Asada, a JVC 

The investments did not stop there. In 
1990, Pioneer Electronics Corp. began 
investing in Carolco Pictures Inc., even- 
tually taking about a 20 percent stake. 

The companies’ motives were simple: 
by stepping into the production side of the 
movie and music business, Japan’s elec- 
tronics giants gained direct control of the 
entertainment products needed to feed 
sales of their audio and video equipment. 

“The leisure market in the U.S. is quite 
big, said Eric Gan, an analyst at Gold' 
man. Sachs & Co. in Tokyo. Indeed, 
movie ticket sales and video rentals total 
about $13 billion a year in America, 
compered with about 65 billion ven 

($663 million) in Japan, be said. 

“Japanese dominate the hardware part 
of the U.S. market: rhev knew thev need- 

previous yean The company said in May 
that it hopes to " * 

break even this year. 

As a result of the reorganization, Lar- 
go no longer distributes movies in the 
massive North American market, con- 
centrating instead on distribution rights 

“Major production companies in the U5. 
tend to take care of distribution on their 
own,” he said. “And independent films 
tend to distribute through major houses.” 

JVC was the first Japanese electronics 
maker to move into Hollywood, when it 
established Largo with Lawrence Gordon, 
the producer of “Die Hard” and u Field of 
Dreams,” as chairman in August 1989. 

Shortly after, Sony Corp. spent $3.4 
billion to acquire Columbia Pictures En- 
tertainment and its music business from 
Coca-Cola Co. Then, Matsushita Elec- 
tric Industrial, which has a 52.4 percent 

stake in JVC, plunked down more than 
lion for Ml 

$6 billion for MCA Inc, owner of Uni- 
versal Pictures. 

-S. market; they knew they need- 
ed to control the movie side, the software 
side, too," added Mr. Gan. 

While the concept should hdp build 
the companies’ business in the long term, 
the returns to date have hardly been 

So far, the biggest winner in Holly- 
wood has been MCA which took in 
worldwide box-office sales erf $900 mil- 
lion for “Jurassic Park.” 

“Nobody is making money, except for 
MCA” Mr. Gan said. 

For Japanese electronics makers, the 
poor return afforded by Hollywood 
could not have come at a worse time. 
After pouring billions of doDarrs into 
acquisitions, the companies saw their 
profits plummet amid a worldwide 
slump in electronics markets and a rise in 
the value of the yen.

Expos Overtake Braves 
With Defeat of Padres 

The Aswaued Press 

After opening the season 13- 
1, the Atlanta Braves looked 
like runaway winners in the Na- 
tional League East. Now look 
who’s in second place. 

Atlanta is looking up in the 
standings for the first lime since 
Sept. 9 of last season. The Mon- 
treal Expos finally caught the 


Braves after nipping at (heir 
heels for a month. 

Montreal, which trailed At- 
lanta by 8£ games before the 
season was even a month old, 
won tbeir fourth straight game 
Sunday, an 8-2 victory over the 
San Diego Padres. 

WO Cordero, named to re- 
place Cincinnati's Barry Larkin 
on the NL’s All-Star team be- 
fore the game, hit his first career 
grand slam as the Expos com- 

f leted a four-game sweep of the 

“Things have really come to- 
gether for this t eam. " Cordero 
said. “Things have come togeth- 
er for me. 1 mean, making the 
All-Star team is just unbeliev- 
able. This is something you 
dream for." 

The Expos, who outscored 
the Padres, 34-3, in the series, 
have been a nightmare for the 

Sunday’s victory was Mon- 
treal’s ninth straight over San 
Diego, and the Expos' 19th in 
21 games with the Padres. 

“We could have been playing 
anybody the way we were play- 
ing,” said, Felipe Alou, Montre- 
al’s manager. “The kind of pres- 
sure we put on them in these 
four games, not too many peo- 
ple can handle that." 

Moises Alou hit two homers 
and Jeff Fassero shut down the 
Padres after giving up two runs 
in the first inning. He gave up 
six hits and struck out eight in 
Six inning s.

berhagen ran his career record

his third straight victory. 

Pedro Astado gave up just 
two hits in seven innings, strik- 
ing out 1 0. He took his First loss 
since June 1 in Atlanta. 

Jeff Kent was hit by Astado 
with one out in the second, and 
Brogna, a rookie, homered for 
the fifth time in 10 games. 

Astros 5, Cubs 3: Orlando

league game, hit two home runs

third straight victory for Hous- 
ton, which enters the All-Star

nati in the Central Division.

AAA Tucson on Wednesday, 
hit his First homer in the fourth, 
giving the Astros a 3-0 lead. In 
the eighth. Miller homered 
again, making it 5-1. 

Kevin Foster took the loss, 
giving up six hits and four walks 
in six innings. 

Giants 2, PWIfies 1: Pinch- 
hitter Jeff Reed’s single in the 
20th scored Dave Martinez to 
give San Francisco a four-game 
sweep of the visiting Philadel- 

Reed's two-out single off 
Doug Jones drove in Martinez, 
who led off with a single and

straight games, their longest 
streak this season.

Harkey. Kurt Abbott singled 
and Bob Natal walked to load 
the bases. Diaz then tripled on a

The Aaodalad Press 

The Geveland Indians will 
not use the All-Star break to 
celebrate tbeir shocking occu- 
pancy of first place in the Cen- 
tral Division, with the best per- 
centage in the American League. 

They will be thinking about 
staying in the race in the second 
half — a rarity on the shores of 


Lake Erie, where nary a cham- 
pionship flag has flow since 

Marie Dade pitched eight 
strong innings despite a stiff 
neck, and Kenny Lofton had 
four hits and four RBIs as the 
visiting Indians rolled into the 
All-Star break with a 9-1 vic- 
tory Sunday over the Minneso- 
ta Twins. 

While Clark held the Twins 
at bay, Lofton was busy prov- 
ing why he is an All-Star. He 
had a homer among four hits 
and drove in four runs. 

Lofton homered off Scott 
Erickson in the first inning, his 
10th after hitting only six in 
each of his first two big-league 

“Home runs just happen," 
said Lofton, who is batting 
.378. “I have the power, but I 

.378. “I have the power, but 
don’t go for than.* 

The Indians ate in first place 
at the break for the first time 
since 1959. Geveland (51-33) 
has its best record at the break 
since 1954, when it was 56-27 
and went on to win its most 
recent pennant. 

White Sox 7, Brewers 2: Jack 
McDowell won his fifth straight 
game, and Lance Johnson had 
three RBIs and stole home as 
visiting Chicago won its sixth 
straight game. 

McDowell, last year's AL Cy 
Young Award winner, scattered 
10 hits, walked one and struck 
out five in eight innings. Bill 
Wegman allowed five runs in 
5% innings as Milwaukee lost 
its fourth straight game. 

In earlier games, reported 
Monday in sane editions of the 
Herald Tribune: 

Athletics 5, Orioles 4: Mark 
McGwire hit a two-run homer 
off Lee Smith in the ninth as 
Oakland won at Baltimore. The 
Orioles were three outs away 
from taking ova first place in 
the American League East 
when McGwire hit an 0-2 pilch 
ova the center-field wall. 

A victory would have pushed 
the Orioles past the first-place 
Yankees. Instead, Baltimore en- 
ters the break a half-game down. 

Red Sox 9, Mariners 2: Rich 
Rowland had a homer among 

three hits and two RBIs as Bos- 
ton — the worst in the Ameri- 
can League in batting — came 
alive with 13 hits. 

Joe Hesketh allowed five hits 
in seven innings. Both runs 
came on a homer by Marc New- 
ficld. Hesketh came within six 
outs of his first complete-game 
victory since 1985.

Unser Races to His 5th JhdyCar Victory 

CLEVELAND — Al Unser Jr. got his fifth 
victory in the last six IndyCar races, beating 
Nigel Mansell by a convincing 23.89 seconds 
in the Gevdand Grand Prix on Sunday. 

Unser, the pole-sitter and this year’s India- 
napolis 500 winner, won with a trade-record 

Unser extended his points lead to 127, 
ahead of his Brazilian teammate Emerson 
Fittipaldi with 86. Fittipaldi retired from the 

race, because of a fire in his brake fizzes.. 
Mansdl, the defending series champion, 
moved into third place with 72 pmnts. 

Unser drove a flawless,, uneventful race, 
while Mansdl, in a Lola Ford Coswarth, had 
two dose caTh that could have diwimatfad him 

“It was a pretty good ran,” Unser said. “I 
was fortunate to get-a good start” 

MansdTs first mddem occurred when he 
was about to lap teammate Mario Andretti, 
who was vying to overtake slower traffic. 
They tangled. 

In the dosing laps, Mansell brushed the 
wall with his left rear tire. 

Pittsburgh has- also become the 
place to be because so many 
fans are now convinced this, 
game wiB be the only jewel the 

r t.wfiL be able to showcase 
year, so gloomy are fore- 
casts of along, bitttt strike. 

In other words, .eat;' drink 
and be merry, for tomorrow the 
game may die. The players bold 
in great disdain the owners’ de- 
mands for a salary cap, and 
they seem to be prepared to 
wield their hammer — the right 
to strike — for the first time 
since 1985: 

And unlike the relatively 
small blip on the; screen that 
was the two-day ■strike in 1985; 
what fi« ahead may turn out to

the Pack, Indurain Takes Lead

Riding with his accustomed 
power, Miguel Intiuram t rashed 
die Tour de France pack Mon- 

-4ay in an individual time trial 
jand started toward his fourth 
consecutive victory in the

t ; There had been some doubts 
about the Spaniard’s strength 
jmd speed because he finished 
-ijirrdni the three-week Giro dl- 
,talia in June after two consecu- 
tive victories in that race. 
Worse, he failed to win a tim e 
trial after dominating the race 
.against the dock in the Giro for 
, two years. 

| Not - to worry. Indurain an- 
‘swered his critics in the initial 
.'six kilometers (3.7 miles} as he

Bardy 10 kilometers later he 
had overhauled the rider who 
.parted two minutes before him, 
Xance Armstrong of the Motor- 
'<JIa team. Other victims began 
± tuming up regularly in Indur- 
ain’s wake.

ifer time trial from Pfaigucuxto

Indurain, who rides for. the 
Banesto team, finished at least 
four minutes ahead efalL 175

rival, Tony Rommgcr. And the 
Swiss, who rides for Mapei-

only to a Mg two fnfriutes.

hour 15 nmiutes 58 . seconds 
over a demanding course in a

nothing to loader the riders but 
kept tens of thousands of fans 
along the course from swoon- 
ing- .• • • 

“Despite the heat, I tried to

he can time trial. 

His face impassxvevhe gulped 
water from a big battle once

Heis wearing the yellow jer- 
sey of overall leader by 2:28

with Castorama, third, 4:40 be- 
hind. Thereafter the mnobers 
belong to astronomy. . 

DeXas Cuevas fimsfaed tinrd 

Monday with a deficit of 4:22. 
Thierry Marie, another French- 
man with Castorama, was 
fourth, 4:45 behind, and Chris 
Boardman, ’the English map 
who rides for the Gan team and 
who wore the yellow jersey for 
three days after he won the pro- 
logue mi July X was fifth, 5:27 

Although there 
probably will be 
many more 
challenges and 


Indurain answered 
the lug question 

behind. Boardman is in seventh 
place overall. 

Loolringwan, Roraingerpaid 
the obvious tribute. 

“I have to admit that Indur- 
am was stronger today,” . he. 

Rommger, who had spurts of 
bad luck last year when he fin- 
ished second to Indniam in die 
Tour, had a flat tire a bit less 
than halfway through the stage 
and lost perhaps 30 seconds m 
having 3ns wheel changed. 

Wearily referring to his two- 
minute deficit, he said, . “TO

This 81st Tour will enter the 
Pyrenees on Wednesday and 
the Alps on July 19. The end of 
the thrco-weckracois scheduled 
in Paris on July 24. 

Although there probably will 
be many challenges and sur- 
prises before then, Indurain an- 
swered the big question Mon- 
day. He regained bisrhythm, he 
said, in the first eight stages of 
the Tour. 

He demonstrated that 
rhythm as he rode along a 
twisty back-country road that 
had several patches of melted 
tar. Up the gradual climbs and 
down die sinuous descents went 
indnram, his body immobile 
from the waist up lo reduce re- 
sistance, his face set in concen- 
tration, his line of attack 
through the many turns always 
tight. • ■ 

His power and speed were 
plain to sec. At the 15-kilometer 
checkpoint, he led Rommger by 
55 seconds, De Las Cuevas by 
1 :Q2 and Boardman, the former 
holder of the record for the 
hour's ride against the clock, by

next checkpoint, at Kilometer

behind, De Las Cuevas 1:59 be- 
hind and Boardman 2:28 be- 

The road became gfntler af- 
ter that, its curves tamed and its 
surface smoother. Indurain 
kept pounding and caught and 
passed De Las Cuevas with 10 
kilometers to go. 

An earlier casualty of the In- 
durain flypast, Armstrong, the 
American who is the profes- 
sional road-race world champi- 
on, finished in 13th place, 6:23 
down. He was hoping to moni- 
tor his development in the race 
against the dock the last 
Tour and the finding was 
mixed: Last year he lost 6:04 to 
the winner, again Indurain, but 
finished 27th.

Leblanc finished 26th on

Will a Smile Turn Up on the Tumberry Course? 

By Larry Dorman 

New Yak Tuna Senitx 

TURNBERRY, Scotland — There 
is not out Tumberry. There are two, 
three, perhaps even four Tumberrys. 

Now fair, now foul, now warm, now 
the cKmate and mood on the 
stark northwest coast of Scotland 
change more often than in the Europe- 
an Union. And toe swi f tne ss and vari- 
ety of toe changes can be just as 

The Tumbeny we encounter this 
day, the weekend before toe 123d Brit- 
ish Open golf championship is to be- 
, must be a dose kin to the day toe 
decided to invent whisky. 

Wind, Hire the poet’s whetted knife, 
slices across the Ailsa Course, Wowing 
pinpoint, cold raindrops that hit toe 
skin with a buck-shot sting. 

Whhecaps bare their teeth across toe 
gray waters of the Firth of Clyde, and 
just one solitary golfer is brave en o ug h 
to make his way around the links. ■ ■ 

Bending at toe waist as he comes up 
the 18th fairway leaning into the gale 
is toe familiar figure of Gary Player. 
Naturally. Who else could it be? The 
man, now 58, is playing in his 40th 
consecutive British Opm. 

He has been in toe championship 
every year since 1955, won it twice; yet 
his enthusiasm has not waned. He has 
been -practicing here every day since 
last Wednesday. 

A little pitiless Scottish weather to 
such a hearty soul is an occupational 
hazard no more troublesome than a 
spHt lip to a boxer. 

“Something happens when I get 
here, I'm telling you, s omething magi- 
cal,” Player says. “There is just no 
place like it. Tins is golf. Why, today 
was so much different from yesterday. 
1 hit 3-iron into greens where I hit 9- 
iron just a day before. It can change in 
an hour, a minute.” 

Besides, Player could tell you, this is 
nothing. You should have seen it in 
1973, when a tent blew into toe Firth 
of Clyde in toe John Player Classic or 
during the first round of the 1986 
British Open, here, when the wind 
blew between 36 and 49 mfles (58 and 
79 kilometers) an hour, and 49 players 
in the field could not break 80. 

That was toe day that Greg Nor- 
man called “the toughest ever in golf.” 
Since Norman went on to win toe 

tournament, the observation was self- 
serving, but accurate. 

It is posable to sit shivering on on 
toe promontory above toe 12to green, 
next to the monument commemorat- 
ing toe dead aviators who trained on 
the runways that are now covered by 
fairways, and look back to toe time 
when these grounds served a much 
more critical purpose. 

During World War L the Royal 
Flying Corps trained here; Hie Royal 
Air Force took over Tumberry during 
World War n, laying runways and 
converting the sprawling hotel into an 
officers’ mess and hospital. 

It seems impossible to believe now, 
looking across the links land at the 
scrubbed elegance of the renovated 
115-room hotel 

What must it have been like to try to 
land a Beaufort or a Blenheim in 40- 
mfle-an-bocr gusts like these? 

Landing a golf ball on a green is, by 
comparison, a small matter. 

This is a distinct part of toe charm 
of this place. As big as this champion- 
ship has become — and 48 of the 
world’s top 50 players are hoe to 
make h toe best odd of the year — toe 

history and surroundings of the site 
should serve to mitigate against play- 
ers becoming too bloated with self- 

The elements also conspire to do 
that. Here in toe remote, craggy land 
hard by toe sea, there are no certain- 
ties other than that life is a struggle; 

On toe surface, it appears toe golf 
course should play easier than it did in 
1986, when toe field stroke average 
was 7S.4. How much easier/ 

The rough should be thin, owing to 
a couple of unseasonably dry seasons, 
and the greens are receptive. 

Tiirubeny’s course superintendent, 
George Brown, went so far as to pre- 
dict recently that someone might 
shoot 59 on the 6,957-yard (6349- 
meter), par-70 golf course. 

It would seem more likely for a 
phantom squadron of Wellingtons to 
resurface from the firth and land on 
the remnant* of the runway to toe left 
of the 12to hole. 

The most likely script will be for 
Turnbeny to show all four of its faces, 
and to smile, finally, on a worthy

Old Order Changes: Once-Hungry Germans Now Down 

I 1 

•«f ■ 

By Ian Thomsen 

Imemaikmal HmM Tribute 

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey — Rndi 
VSller, 34 years old and retired once already, and his 
st riking partner Jurgen Klinsmann, who wm turn 30 
soon, were standing in the midfield circle, leaning 
over the bafi. They wanted to kick it — couldn't their 

countrymen see? One was going to tap it forward to 
the other and the ball would get to rolling and the 
Germans wouldn’t stop until it was in that other net. 

That is the way die Germans play — you hurt them, 
they hurt you worse until you can't take any more;

looted over his shoulder and . . . where were they? 

His teammates were walking, half-jogging. 
Couldn’t they see he and Vdlier leaning over the ball 
like statues — the heroic kind? The statues began to 
wave as frantically as traffic cops. 

And so the Germans, the defending World Cup 

minute as he was tripped by the ultimate Bulgarian 
hero, Iordan Letchkov, while chasing a high, awkward 
bounce. It was a call that few opponents would take 
for granted — Belgium was cheated out of a much 
more obvious penalty one week earlier against Ger- 
many — but Klinsmann has earned the respect and 
occasional protection of the referees. It comes in 
deference to has experience. Experience would undo 
his team, but not before Lothar Matthlus, the 33- 
year-old expected to make a record 22d Wcdd Cup 
appearance in the anticipated semifinal with Italy an

champions, were beaten Sunday, even before it 
could dawn on them that they were losing. And they 
were losing to Bulgaria — Bulgaria! — which had 
beaten Germany once in 17 matches, which had 
never won a World Cup match as of 14 days before. 
The Germans, with three world championships in 
hand, had lost just once in 10 previous quarterfinals. 
Their rivals, Italy and Brazil, already had advanced 
to the semifinals — there was a private race on to 
decide which would become the first to win four 
World Cups — and each now understands com- 
pletely how much the world has come to change at 
Germany's expense. 

They were suckered in by friendly forces, beginning 
with a penalty awarded to Klinsmann in the 48th 

Hie Germans, with three world championships, had lost just once in 10 
previous quarterfinals. Its rivals Italy and Brazil had advanced to the 
semifinals — there was a private race on to decide which would 
become the first to win four World Caps — and each now understands 
how much the world has come to change at Germany’s expense. 

Foot mmutM after the e qualiser, the German 
problem came into focus. They wexesi’t scared and 
they weren't hungry — and sensing rids, perhaps. 
Vogts had sent Stefan Effenberg home for making 
an obscene gesture to the fans at the end of the first 
rwmd. Franz Beckenbauer was among the many 
who criticized Vogts for overreacting. . 

Nonetheless, they had won in games worse than 
this l-l draw wjth Buigaria and they we re going, to 
winagau^ orso the Germans seemed Co be humming 
to themselves Sunday as their 5-foot, 5-inch (1.65-. 
meter) ntidfidder, Thomas Hfissier, was beaten on a 
header by Letchkov. 

Said Matthaus, “We had oar smallest man trying, 
to defend Letchkov. HSssler is not that bag a cham- 
pion at headers.” 

. Said Vogts, “You can't leave HSssler alone when a 
player the quality of Letchkov is coming down oh 

Hare is a wwwrid onto devetotmfc 
taflS unprrftoabfe and as sprang “ the ta 
SSTSCSS began 

Wednesday, had converted the penalty for the Ger- 
mans’ first and final goal. 

Old men who fail to learn humffity can be such 
fools. All of the German strength arid history still 
amounted to one flimsy goaL The Bulgarians had 
been trying to revolt with one breakaway after anoth- 
er, even as Jflrgea Kohler was marking HristoStoitch- 
kov, the Bulgarian star at Barcelona, our of existence. 
As the Germans lock back an it now, they will see that 
they were stifling only Stcitchkcrv — and even then he 
was able to beat them with a free kick. 

A lot of the Giants Stadium audience moved more 

question the people who were ahead; 
retire. 1 question their preparation. You shouldn't talk 
about retirement 10 minnfes after the game.” 

The German manager, Berti Vogts, placed some 
blame on defenders for not j naming to contest, the 
shot, but be was more disappointed with IUgner’s 
sudden retirement. 

“It shows some weakness of character,” Vogts 
said. “This is the first real human disappointment 
for me.” 

Asked about Ulmer’s flat-footed response to the 
free kick, Vogts said, “It's good that he is quitting.” 

And said HSssler: “I have nothing to say on the 

second goaL Tm not supposed to be m there I was 

running, bat the pass was already there. We lost a 
game that we couldn't lose.” 

The last time Germany reKnqtasbed the lead in a 
World <Cup match was June 21, 1978, when Vogts; a 
defender at the time, turned over a 1-0 lead by 
accidentally putting the ball in Ins own net 
Meanwhile, the Bulgarians were congratulating 
Letchkov for more than his goaL *T had an interest-

BERLIN — The one- word headline 
Monday in Bild, Germany’s biggest-drcula- 
tion daily, said almost everything: “Out!” 

It was a surprise ouster for the defend- 
ing World Cup champions, losing 2-1 to 
dark-horse Bulgaria, and it reverberated 
like a thud back home. 

Fireworks crackled in Berlin for Germa- 
ny’s one goal against Bulgaria. But then 
came the two-goal Bulgarian burst, and the 
top item on the late news — reported 
before President Bill Clinton’s arrival on a 
state visit to Germany — was the stunning 
defeat of the national soccer heroes. 

There followed much second-guessing 
in Monday’s newspapers. 

Wm coach Bern Vogts survive? 

Said Bild: “Berti Vogts is not without 

Said Bild: 

Bild and other media cast doubt on 
some of Vogts’s player choices. The ana- 
lysts on ZDF television thought the 
coach's postmatch comments — looking 
ahead to European competition — showed 
insensitivity to the magnitude of the quar- 
terfinal loss in the World Cup. 

The Berliner Morgenpost headline cap- 
tured the swift turnaround in the game 
with the words: “Bitter! World Cup Out in 
200 Seconds” — ref errin g to the two quids 
Bulgarian that erased a German lead 
in the second half. 

The daity Die Wdt asked Vogts if he was 
thinking of resigning. The coach replied that 
he had always said he would consider calm- 
ly after the world Om what to do. But he 
added: “As long as Tm enjoying it, m 
continue. And f m enjoying it” 

The fans had a different view. German 

TV showed scenes of delicious contrast: In 
Bulgaria, people danced in the streets with 
fiagp and music, while Germans at an 
open-air tavern in Cologne sat with leaden 
faces as defeat sank in. 

In Switzerland, the mass-circulation 
RlirV daily sa id the German team had 
thought it was invincible. The Btick head- 
line read, “Germany weeps — the rest of 
the world laughs.” 

After the Loss Sunday, the German goal- 
keeper, Bodo fllgner, said he was retiring 
from international competition. 

“1 told the coach in the changing rooms 
that I will not play for the national team 
anymore,” said Hlgner, 27. “I had made 
the decision to quit already before, but I 
wanted to leave with another World Cup 
title. It didn’t work out, but I am standing 
by my decision.” (AP, AFP)

I ORDAN Letchkov, who had scored the win- 
ning goal with a header off the worn and 
weathered bal dness of his dome, was speaking in 
German with the German reporters. He earns his 
bring, after all, in Hamburg. When officials 
finally directed Letchkov to a Bulgarian-EngHsh 
interpreter, somebody asked him if he had given 
any advice to his coach about the Goman 

*+[ told him we would have to be very careful 
with HSssler Letchkov said. Come to think erf 

out here in the swamplands erf New Jersey. And 
that’s why they call it the World Cup. 

Kmssmrir Boiakov — he of the dadc/Haxpo 
Marx cuds and the never-ending sprints up and 
down the field — was answering my dreadful 
Spanish in tus accen t ed Portuguese. Re is a cult- 
figure, after all, with Sporting Lisbon. . 

The Bulgarians scatter so far m search of the 
almighty peseta, the ever-perwerfui Deutsche 
marie, the more-than-hripful franc, the weighty 
but still valuable lira, that they do not get to 
know each other's good sides. But they are hav- 
ing a typtedty American senativity session. And 
that's why they call it the World Cup. 

Then there is Borislav Afikhailov, the goat* 
keroer trim was rather baldish only last season, 
and now sports a marvelous head of dazk hair. 
Doesn't he warty stout going askew wton be 
dives into the turf to stop a cannonball? Anyway, 
Mikhailov was responding to my ghastly French, 
but ai least he didn't wrinkle up his nose in 
distaste, which is what every true Fzsnch patriot 
does to nre when I give that beautiful language a 
try. MDchaBov*s Hnguistic expertise is only nitn- 
nu, ancc he guards the portals for ^Muihousc. 

, “Jc n’avais pas peur, parcc qu’il y avail 
immutes encore,” Mikhailov said. This is French 
for "What, me worry?” That's about how be fdt 
when Germany scored in the 49th inmute. ' 

two goals in a tournament in 
which he had been expected to 
afafafe brighter than most. 

Baggio followed up ins her- 
oics Saturday at Foxboro Stadi- 
um near Boston by scoring with 
two mhmtes left to give Italy a 
2-1 triumph over Spain and sent 
the Italians to the semifinals. 

“No, we’re not satisfied to be 
in the semifinals," Sacchi said. 
“We cannot be satisfied. We 
have a lot to prove to our pros? 
dent and oar people.” . : 

Sacchi had praise for all his 
players fm the performance 
.against /Spain, particularly 
Alessandro Costacurta and 
Dino Baggio, who scored the 
first goal against Spain and also 
scored the ooW gpal in the first- 
round tri ump h over Norway. : 

Dino Ba^o was also the 
man who scored the winner 
over Portugal on the last day of

“I have known for several years that t arn &

chances of success.

[after his team advanced to the

With deep wrinkles around 
[his eyes and his recedmg blond 
hairline, Ravdh looks more like 
die salesman he studied to be 

f than the world-class 0 

F he is. But at 34, the oldest 
! er on Sweden's rda 
| side, he stiQ had enough spring 
; in his legs and c omp e titi ve .fine 
! in his heart to become the hero 

■ of Sunday's penalty-lack shoo- 

• tOUt. 

Ravelli, not known for his 
prowess in stopping shots from 
the 10-meter mark, managed to 
stop two Sunday afternoon. His 
first save, against Dan Petroses, 
kept Sweden’s hopes alive; his 
second, against Miodrag Bdo- 
dedid, gave Sweden the victory. 

Ravelli, the son of an Aostri- 
. an im mi gr an t, did all this on the 

• day that be tied the national 
record held by defender Bjorn 

In 1990, when Ravdli finally 
got the dunce to play in .Italy, 
the Swedes lost all three of tiwr 
first-round matches and re- 
turned to a disappointed nation. 

“We wan our last 
game, 6-0, against R 
evea^io^r tiiotirfrt we would be 
so good^Raveffi said. “Maybe 
we t rain ed a bit too hard last 
time. We practiced twice a day, 
and I thmk it was too ranch.** 

. With a new obach,- Tomzny

came on Sweetish. sdL 

“This .time^wc are along way 
fromhome,” Ravdli said. . 

And even if Ravelli and the 
SwcdeyshoeM faH short the 
1958 team, by losing once more 
to Brazil,' the man who could 
have been a salesman is not 
ready to write an end to his 
international career. 

All he needs are 10 more caps 
to equal the world record for 
international appearances held 
by the

Most tikdy, 1 

both three- 

. isacombma- 
tieme* the two: Brazil beating Swedenin 

one of Wednesday’s semis, Bulgaria out- 
lasting Italy in the other. 

But even Brazil, which lacks only a 
true midfield orchestrator among cer- 
tainly the most talented player pool in 
the competition, should presume no di- 
vine right. Its players have seen teams 

fain Fact era Europe, teams emerging 

cut of post-Communist confusion, elim- 
inate Argentina and Germany, the two 
previous wodd champions. 

Argentina’s conqueror, Romania, was 
beaten on the dreaded penalty shootout 
by Sweden on Sunday. The Swedes are 
as undemonstrative as their tennis 
champions Bjorn Borg and Stefan Ed- 
bog, but they plot against the .oppo- 
nents’ strengths and, believe me, they 
mean to win. • 

The victory over Romania was two- 
fold. Sweden isolated Gheorghe Hagi, at 
times with foul intent And they soft- 
balled the Romanians, giving a team of 
R ghtr? mg cotmterattaidts no . space or

TJ YEN then. th^raatdfwas tied 2-2, 
LZ# and condnded as no contest ever

tery. That gave Thomas Ravdli, in his 
1 15th appe a r a nce as Sweden's goalkeep- 
er, the chance for once to play hero with 
two acrobatic stops. 

It also desolated Romania, and made 
potential scapegoats out of Miodrag Be- 
lodedid and Dan Petrscu, two extremely 
fine defenders asked to do what they 
were not trained or tempera m en t al ly 
suited to do: score penalty kicks. 

“Penalties are a lottery ” admits Tom- 
my Svensson. Sweden’s coach. “But I 
don’t know of a better system." FIFA 
does; it plans a sudden-death system, 
play on until the next goal. The sooner 
the better, for, even in hothouse condi- 

tions like these, that at least involves the- 
full range of soccer skills. 

Anyway, the release turned one bald, 
quiet onlooker on his head. Svensson 
rushed to the field, did a hand spring of 
joy, and came as dose in that gesture as 
a Swede does to boasting. 

Boastfulness, they leave to the Ger- 
mans. Forgive me, but I'm glad to see 
the back or Germany. Like England, it 
has lived on its past Like England, it 
was presomtuous about its own great- 
ness. Like England, its arrogant self be- 
lief was headed far a tumble: 

Germany’s team had grown old. Man- 
ager Bern Vogts tried to nurse the 1990 
winners through 1994 because he felt 
Germany’s youth was uninspiring. 

So, in the end, were Lothar Matthias 
and . Co. They stagnated in soccer’s pool 
of pr ogre s sion, and how delightful that

-Bulgaria had never won a Wodd Cup 
tournament match before. It had lost its 
match hoe to Nigeria, 3-0. 

low it has the scalps of two former 
champions, Argentina and Germany. 

Who says Bulgaria, on the way up, will 
not now erase Italy, a fading, tired, fright- 
ened team depending on the ponytafl 
strand of its talisman, Roberto Baggio? 
Soccer is becoming a marvelous levd- 

knew exactly where, bow and why his 
email natiwi might defeat Germany. 

He should da Letchkov is one of the 
new breed of Bulgarians, a mercenary 
making it abroad. He plays for Hamburg, 
and this knows precisley the strengths 
and weakness of German players. 

Hi s unfiustered perform an ce told his 
colleagues there was nothing to fear, not 
even from Germans who had three extra 
days’ rest and whose theatrical center- 
forward, Jfirgen Klinsmann, tricked all- 
other referee into granting him a penalty. 

But speaking of fear, how eerie it is to 
be enjoying this Wodd Cup and its 
friendly ambience while returning from 
the stadiums to see on television the 
tragedies from other parts of the wodd 
reacting to this World Cup. 

The murder of Andris Escobar, the 
only player so far to officially score an 
own-goal here, stiQ lies uncomfortably 
on the memory. 

T HEN there are the accidents in Na- 
ples, where a child was shot by his 
brother attempting to fire a salute to 
victory. The Romanian farmer stabbing 
edebrators in the street, the dead and 
injured in Mexico City, the rioters in the 
Nethadands, the wretched misfortime 
of a youth electrocuted in Rio de Janeiro 
attempting to attach flags to pylons. 

Who can explain it? The sport is fine, 
the stadiums here are havens, and in the 

er, with the unpredictable Hristo wodd far away, in the lands from winch 
Stoitchkov in Bulgaria’s ranks, anything the performers come, people’s emotions 
can hanoen. are being carried to catastrophic propor-

One player — another baldie — 
c«" pht my eye Sunday. Iordan Letch- 
kovs apperance is deceptive. He turned 
27 on Saturday, yet when he put his head 
to the ball to seme a superb goal against 
Germany it crowned a performance 
from him in midfidd that suggested he 

g carried to catastrophic propor- 

“Soc cer," says Andreas Henan, a 
young FIFA press officer, “is simply 
paying the price for being such a popu- 
lar sport.” It is neither simple, nor an 
acceptable price.

PALO ALTO, California — 
The Swedish goalkeeper, 
Thomas Ravelli, stared out at 
the ball sitting 10 meters away 
on the penalty spot- He stared 
out at the Romanian defender 
Miodrag Bdodedid, who was 
about to kick the baD after 90 
minutes of regulation time, 30 
minutes of overtime and a 
round of penalty kicks had not 
decided a world Cup quarterfi- 
nal here at Stanford Stadium. 

“I have an opportunity to 
save this ball and be a hero," 
RavdH thought to himself. 

With a dive to Ins left, he did 
save that ball — his second save 
in p enal ty kicks — and be did 
become a hero, as Sweden con- 
tinued its best World Cop per- 
formance since 1958 by defeat- 
ing Romania, 5-4, on Sunday in 
penalty lacks after tying the 
gamp at two goals apiece on 
forward Kennet Andersson’s 
header with five minutes left in 
overtime and playing short- 
handed because of midfielder 
Stefan Schwarz’s ejection earli- 
er in overtime. 

Sweden will meet Brazil in a 
semifinal Wednesday at the 
Rose Bow! in Pasadena, Cali- 
fornia. The teams met in the 
first round of the tournament 
and played to a 1-1 tie — the 
only blemish on Brazil’s record. 
Romania was eliminate d from 
the tournament in penalty kicks 
for the second consecutive time. 
In 1990, Ireland defeated them, 
5-4, after a scoreless game. 

“The worst thing is to take a 
goal Hke we did in the last five 
minutes" of overtime, said Ro- 
mania’s star midfielder, 
Gheorghe Hagi. 

“We should have won, 1-0, in 
ordinary time," said Ravelli, 
who tied Sweden’s all- time re- 
cord for national team appear- 
ances Sunday after many Swed- 
ish players and fans had 
thought his career was finished 
years ago. “But as the game 
developed, to win in a shootout 
was much more fun." 

It was a finish that rewarded 
a less- than-capacity crowd of 
81,715 that endured nearly 80 
minutes of scoreless tactical 
jousting. After the Swedish 
striker Martin Dahlin hit the 
post with a diving header in the 
fourth minute, Sweden went 
forward in great numbers very 
cautiously and began retreating 
at the first sign of trouble. It 
was a move designed to contain 
Romania’s swift counterattack- 
ing offense and the multitalent- 
ed Hagi. 

It worked, as the Ro man ia ns 
seemed incapable of creating 
scoring opportunities when 
fenced to advance slowly. Their 
numerous and ineffective hori- 
zontal passes in the midfield 
drew whistles of derision in the 
first half's final moments. After 
the Swedish midfielder Thomas 
Brotin broke the tie in the 79th 

minute, however, the match 
picked up speed 

The Romanian forward Flo- 
rin Raducioiu recorded an 
equalizing goal in the 89th, and 
j>enultunate, minute of regula- 
tion. He then added a go-ahead 
goal in the 1 1th minute of the 
30-minute overtime. Sweden’s 
chances of coming back 
dimmed a minute later when 
Schwarz broke up a Romanian 
counterattack by fouling for- 
ward Hie Dumiircscu from be- 
hind — an infraction that re- 
sulted in his second yellow-card 
caution of the game and, thus, 
his ejection. 

Schwarz will be suspended 
for the semifinal mamh l which 
could be critical, since the start- 
ing midfielder Jonas Them 
missed Sunday’s game because 
of a sprained knee and the de- 
fenders Roland Nilsson and Jo- 
achim Bjoridund played with 
injuries (Ltjorklund, who has a 
pulled groin, was replaced after 
83 minutes Sunday). 

But in the 25 Lh minute of 
overtime, Nilsson collected a 
loose ball on the far right wing 
deep in Romania’s end. After a 
couple of dribbles, he lofted a 
long pass that sailed all the way 
across Romania’s goal. Anders- 
son was waiting for it directly in 
front of the left post about six 
meters from the goal 

The Romanian goalkeeper, 
Florin Pnmea, came out and 
tried to punch the ball away, 
but he arrived an instant too 
late. Andersson outjumped him 
and cleanly headed the ball into 
the open net 

The penalty kicks started 
poorly for Sweden. The mid- 
fielder Hakan Mild took the 
first shot and sent it well over 
the crossbar. However, Sweden 
did not miss again. 

Romania made its first three 
ticks before Ravdli saved a 
shot by Dan Fetrescu. Du- 
mitrescu connected on Roma- 
nia’s fifth shot, sending the 
game to sudden-death penalty 
tides, with one shot per team 
until there is a winner. 

Sweden’s Henrik Larsson, 
who had replaced Dahlin, made 
his shot. Ravelli then made his 
save, sending all of the Swedish 
players into a -joyous huddle 
around their goalkeeper. 

“Oh my God,” Dahlin said of 
his reaction. “I had alot of pain 
and I couldn’t run. But I had to 

The Romanians were left fro- 
zen in despair.

Brazil’s Branco at 30: His Time Hats Come , Again 

By Malcolm Moran 

New York Times Service 

D ALLA S His time had 
oome and gpne. That is the way 
it seemed far Branco, as t he 

natirwral team of Brazil pushed 

through this World Cup with 
the style of its offensive drills 
and the substance of its defen- 
sive ntey. Branco’s time was 
four ferns ago in Italy, or four 
before that in Mesdca 

He turned 30 in April, the 
fifth-oldest name on the na- 
tional team’s roster. He was 
once considered one of his 
I country’s best defensive play- 
j era, with a powerful leg in free- 
" kick situations. 

But as the Brazilians pre- 
pared to come to America, 
and die smallest detail of the 
national team became subject 
to debate, Branco’s spot on 
the team became an issue. 

Then, in tbe flash of a dam-' 
aging elbow — Leonardo’s el- 
bow to the face of the Ameri- 
can Tab Ramos in the first 
of the second round — 
^_o received a chance: 

He was starling against tbe 
Netherlands in the quarterfi- 
nal game on Saturday after- 
noon. He was lining up for a 
free kick late in the second 
half of a 2-2 game. . 

The loss of a two-goal lead, 
an unthinkable possibility to 
BraziTs followers, had creaieu 
a shocking vulnerability. The 

dock in the Cotton Bqwi was 

ticking above 35 minutes. 
Branco took the time to took, 
and rethink that the time was 

in T 

“Before hitting the ball I 

looked up at the scoreboard, 
he said through zn interpreter. 
“There were 10 minutes to go. 
And 1 got it into ray head it 
was the right moment, the jrct 
moment, and I bad God’s hdp 
to make it happen aithat mo- 
ment," r . 

Branco’s perfectly placed 

shot, just inside the right post 
tittle more than grass-high, be- 
came the difference in Brazil's 
3-2 victaxy. His ninth goal in 
international play, in his 77 th 
appearance, allowed his coun- 
try to meet its overwhelming 
expectations for one more 
round and advance to a semi- 
final game against Sweden on 
Wednesday at the Rose Bowl 
in Pasadena, California. 

“The put-up or shut-up 
goal,” the interpreter said. 

Branco acknowledged the 
debate" over Ins presence an 
the roster: There is no wrar to 
overstate the intensity of fecsl- 
mg. erven when the gam es are. 
' <ed before crowds miles 
mil es to the north with 


As Branco stood in tin inter- 
view tent next to the stadium 
after the game, a collection of 
arms, each with a cellular tele- 
phone at die end, extended 
-toward the new hero as each of 
his words was transmitted, 
abroad. . . . 

B3s success at such a poten- 
tially dangerous point m the 
tournament, after being inac- 
tive in . the 'four previous 
games, reflects a depth of tal- 
ent and experience that could 
help Brazil become the first 
four-time winner in World 
Cup history. ‘ ■

£f not for the right elbow of 

suspension that resulted,

a forgotten part. But now his 
coach, Carlos Alberto Pai^

as “fundamental to our 
team.” -

Mango Mania in India 

A Brother Confronts a Legacy of Violence

Why is such an oddly-

with a passion that surpasses

lyrical book, “Nature Watch.” 

And pity the person who 
thinks just any old mango w3]

throughout India, every type 
has its loyalists.

however, are always on the 
lookout for the exotic. His dis- 
play, which filled almost one- 
third of the indoor arena of 
Delhi’s 7th International Man- 
go Festival, was a smorgasbord 
of more than 450 varieties, all 
grown on his 100-acre (40- hect- 
are) farm about 35 miles (55

C HICAGO — Mikal Gilmore has a soft voice, an 
understated wit and a sweet enthusiasm. He is 
lean and pale. His forehead arches high above his 
angular face, and he seems to listen thoughtfully, 
carefully. He is tactful when the media people, who 
interview him three or fear times a day lately, ask 
fuzzy questions or think his book is a true-crime

interviews unusual is the wrenching intimacy and 
dignity of what he has to say. His book is “Shot in 
the Heart," It is the tale of a family — his own — 
and a tale of impressive bravery, again, his own. The 
bravery is in investigating and writing unflinchingly 
and poetically of the “whole [expletive] tragedy” 
that is his heritage and blood. 

“It took me 15 years to work up the nerve,” says 
Gilmore. “The idea scared the hell out of me, putting 

myself out so publicly and in perhaps a permanent 
way. I was daunted. I didn’t know if I could bear it.” 

While Faridi lovingly cradled 
his favored mangoes and es- 
poused their attributes for all to 
hear, 41 more rambunctious 
mango-lovers lined up for the 
mango eating competition. 

Each contestant was given 7.7 
pounds of mangoes, an empty 
bucket, a knife and four minutes 
to devour the fruits. 

Six-year-old Kanina Arora 
stripped her mangoes of their 
thick skin and gnawed fero- 
ciously at the orange pulp in- 
side. Faridi’s wife, Kaiser, 
ripped the top oft the fruit and 
sucked madly. 

But nobody could compete 
with 14-year-old Kan war Jot 
Singh for style. He grabbed a 
mango in each fist, squeezed the 
pit through the too Popeye- 
style and jammed tne fruit — 
two at a time into his mouth. 

Orange pulp drizzled down his 
neck and splattered the lens of

Mikal Gflmore is Gary Gilmore's youngest broth-

Provo, Utah, shot to death a motel keeper and a law 
student working at a gas station. It was not his

the first U. S. execution in 10 years. 

Gary Gilmore’s execution — five gunshots into a 
white circle pinned on his black T-shirt — and the 
preceding months of legal wrangling were big news. 
Norman Mailer wrote about it in “The Execution- 
er’s Song" and won a Pulitzer Prize. 

But Mikal Gilmore's book is not just about Gary. 
It is about all the members of the Gilmore family 
and their legacy of pain and waste and degradation. 
It is about cruelty and betrayal of children, and the 
grown-up children’s subsequent rage and self-de- 
struction. It is about a violence as routine as meal-

Frank GQmore Sr. had a. mother who conjured 
spirits, who shunted lam off to boarding schools, 
who never spoke of her baby who had died. She 
claime d, and Frank believed, that his father was the

^hen Bessie Brown, MSkaTs mother and Frank's ■ 
seventh or eighth wife, met hfm, he was scammmg 
merchants with phony advertising and hotfooting it 
' out of town. Bessie Was the rebdfiousdaugbtcx of a 
bullying father and a descendant of Mormons who 
had walked across the country. Hex childhood was 
harsh, filled with talcs of tin and retributiom and she 
fled the family farm a* soon, as she .could. 

. Frank brat MtkaTs three brothers viciously, at , 

least weddy. because they dropped a piece of cakcor 

lingered five minutes after schooLor ror no thing . He 
mocked and humiliated them. Frank Jr* the oldest, 
withdrew. Gary would scream and .thrash^ which - 
made his father hit longer and harder. He remained 
the anointed troublemaker until he died. ‘ 

Until Mikal was bom, .Gaylen was the. brother 
most loved by Ms father. After Mzkal’s.birth, Gay- 
ko, too, was beaten and mocked. 

“I told myself I was different from them,” Mikal 
Gilmore says of Ms family. And he was. By the time 
he was book 10 years after Gary, Ms father had done 
a turnabout, buying a bouse is Portland and pub- 
tishing a local braiding codes handbook. And he was 
gentle with his youngest son. His father would take' 
Mikal away on business trips for weeks on ead. ~My 

father and V* he writes, Svere our own family " . 

But this separated Mikal from the rest of Ms 
family. “My brothers were people I wanted to be 
dose to, thatlloved," he says: “I longedfor fraterni- 
ty with them." He was able to achieve rt, in the end.

Con n dla Breus for Tbe V/t^uagU 

For Mikal Gilmore , there is no bitterness. 

He began his book three years ago. His long- 
postponed “Shot in the Heart" proposal was pur- 
chased in 1991 for a reported advance-of $700,000, 

Doubleday beating out 10 competing publishers. 
He had lost his entire f armiv long before. His 

Buz it was quite another thing to investigate himself 
and Ms family, to write of his father beating his wife- 
and sons bloody, of Ms screaming mother smashing 
the turkey into the wall at Thanksgiving, of one 
brother being stabbed and eventually dying from the 
wotzsds another murdering innocents. 

He had lost his entire family long before. His 
father, mother and two of his brothers had died, 
Gary from execution, Gaylen from the stabbing 
wounds that never healed. Frank Jr., the oldest 
brother, was alive, but had vanished. 

To all appearances, he was a success. Betides his 
Rolling Stone stories, he was music critic ax toe now- 
defunct Los Angeles Herald-Examiner. He had 
friends and money in the bank. He had been mar- 

real family — Frank." 

“Shot in the Heart” is too honest a book to have a 
happy ending. “In toe beghuring/’ Mikal says, “it 
was plain that you leant thing s so you don’t have' to. 
keep repeating them. At toe eazd I realized yon don’t 
get to a place where you’re purged The Last para- 
graph was grim. But When l got down to toe last 
sentences I was more dated than FVe eyef been in 
my life.” In writing about Mrfarinly tie says he has 
found some peace and, yes, some happiness. 

*T think a victorious life would be, at toe end yon 
are free of bitterness. I approached tins book with 
detachment. I had no stake in vindicating or judg- 
ing. I think bitterness doesn’t have a place in my' 
heart- ifed fighter now. I led less urgency ; l don't 
know if I would want anyone clse. lt would not 
be as interesting It would be baring. ; : 

“It’s a heartbreaking and devastating world,” he- 
says. “Ail you can do is iiVe with .as mtich grace as . 
you can." •
