hardcover and paperback global retail sales would come 
to more than 5100 million. ' 

In late March, with Pope John Paul II still completing 

: his hand-written manuscript in Polish, Mr. Mondadori 
contacted the New York seperagent Mort Janklow to sell 
world English rights. And cm Tuesday night Mr. Janklow 
sola those rights to Random House for an advance 
estimated to be more than $6 mfllion. 

For the 74-year-old Pope, the book of essays — 
A^rossmg tiie Threshold of Hope” — is a chanr» to 
convey his innermost thoughts about life and religion to 
readers, around the world. His previously published 
wanes include catechisms, plays written in his youth in 
Krakow, and a collection of poetry.

by .the spiritual leader of more than 900 million CkthoKcs

Mr. Janklow, who said be was “flattered” to be asked 
to become the Pope’s agent, is forecasting big sales. “I 
think this book ww see the kinds of numbers that are 
stratospheric,” be said in an interview. 

Indirectly, the deaLwQl also bring prestige to Prime 

Minister Silvio Berlusconi of Italy, who still controls 47 
percent of Mondadori, having last month sold majority 
control of the Milan-based publisher in an international 
stock offering. 

The royalties will be handled through a special account 
being set up at the Zstiruto per le Opera di Religione, the 
Vatican bank. 

Mr. Mondadori signed the contract on June 30 with 
Joaquin Navarro-Valls, the Vatican spokesman who was 
acting on the Pope's behalf. He received the 35-chapter 
volume, which mil make for a 230-page book when it is 
published this fall, only after it had been translated by the 
Vatican from Polish to Italian. 

Mr. Janklow, who is believed to begetting his usual 15 
percent commission, refused to disclose the precise ad- 
vance he bad won from Random House, which will 
publish the book in the United States under its Alfred A 
Knopf imprint, and in Britain, Australia and New Zea-

Critical Point 
h Nearing for 
Peace Talks 
With Arabs 

By Gyde Haberman 

Jttw York Tima Service 

JERUSALEM — While attention' 
has been focused largely on the Pales- 
tinians and the start of their self-rule, 
peace talks between Israel and its 
Arab neighbors are ai a potentially 
decisive stage on more fronts than at 
any moment since they began three 
years ago. 

This week, Israel began a new 
round of negotiations with the Pales- 
tine Liberation Organization. In a few 
days, it will enter a new phase in its 
dialogue with Jordan, and at the same 
time it also wifl welcome the U.S. 


secretary of state, who will try to 
breathe fresh life into stalled talks 
with Syria. Wherever the Syrians go, 
Lebanon can be expected to foDow. 

Some Israeli officials say that these 
efforts will, as they develop over the 
next few months, determine whether 
Middle East peace negotiators ulti- 
mately succeed or fail. And though 
others caution against such do-or-die 
forecasts, they agree that the multi- 
track talks have reached a critical 

One reason, they say, is the reality 
of Israel's political calendar. Having 
celebrated its second anniversary 
Wednesday, the Labor-led govern- 
ment of Erase Minister Yitzhak Ra- 
bin has two years left That gives it 
perhaps another year to come to terms 
with the Arabs before turning its at- 
tention to domestic politics. 

Should Labor then be ousted by the 
rightist Likud party, it is a fair bet that 
negotiations as they are now known — 
with Israel prepared to give up land 
far peace — will become a thing of the 

For the moment, the talks com- 
manding Israel’s greatest interest are 
those with Jordan, which will take on 
a new look next week with the two 
sides bolding their fust open meetings 
in each other’s country. 

Negotiations on bender and water 
disputes are supposed to begin Mon- 
day in a tent set up along the frontier 
between the two countries, starting on 
the Israeli side. 

As part of this new direction, For- 
eign Minister Shimon Peres is sched- 
uled next Wednesday to become the

Kim Jong U Takes Over Total Power, North Korea Announces 

By T. R. Reid 

Washington Pcot Service 

SEOUL — Supreme power in North 
Korea has passed to Kizn Jong B, the state- 
controlled radio reported Wednesday, say- 
ing he hM succeeded his late father in all 
three of the top positions. 

The report indicated that Mr. Kim, 52, 
had taken over as secretary-general of the 
Workers* Parly, the nation's only legal 

party, as commander of the mfllion- mem- 
ber armed forces, and as president. 

That would give the son full control of 
the governing apparatus set np by his fa- 
ther, Kim fl Sung, the “Great Leader,” 
who. died Friday, reportedly of heart at- 

• Xq its characteristic style, .Radio Pyong- 
yang’s news service reported several times 
that "Our Dear Leader and comrade Kim 
Jong H, the sole successor to our Great 

Leader, now holds the revered positions at 
the top of the party, the government, and 
the revolutionary forces.” 

But South Korean officials said they 
woald await clearer notification from 
North Korea before concluding that the 
younger Mr. Kim has managed to cany 
out fully the transfer of power, the first 
hereditary succession in any Communist 

South Korean officials said the radio 

report was not surprising, since the trans- 
fer of the father's power to the son had 
seemed to be going smoothly following the 
fust word of Kim H Sung’s death. 

However, analysts here said they did not 
think Kim Jong H or anyone else could 
formally assume the three titles until the 
official funeral for Kim D Sung, set for

vice Wednesday released more videotape.

of thousands were seen beating their 
breasts and crying uncontrollably.

North Koreans had taken part in public 
mourning rituals.

Rwandans Overwhelm 
Zairian Border Post 

Hutu refugees fleeing rebel forces of 
the Tutsi-dominated Rwandan Patriotic 
Front overwhelmed a border crossing in 
Zaire cm Wednesday, officials said 

A Red Cross worker estimated, that 
refugees were crossing the border at the 
rate of 10,000 an hour along a small dirt 
road just north of Goma, Zaire. 

The crossing was overrun after Zairian 
officials closed the main crossing at 
Goma. Behind those first Rwandan refu- 
gees, one aid worker estimated, 1 million 
refugees were en route Wednesday on a 
40-fcuometer stretch of road from Ru- 
hengeri to Gisenyi. 

Gisenyi, in western Rwanda across the 
border from Goma, is the stronghold of 
Rwanda’s mostly Hutu interim govern-

BAGHDAD — This isolated city has 
not heard so many foreign accents in a 

Four dozen. Frenchmen led the way,

delegations peppered with corporate hon- 
chos. Japanese, Italian and Spanish busi- 
nessmen also showed up In the past month 

or so, as did a German parliamentary dele- 

eation, a Pakistani aviation official and a 
deputy foreign teamster. . 

The viols, along- with an increasing 
number of trips abroad by senior Iraqi 
officials, are the most illustrative demon- 
stration of the waning m will to 

maintain United Nations trade sanctions 
imposed on Iraq after it invaded Kuwait 
nearly four years ago. 

Most of those who arrived came to 
“prospect,” as a Frenchman put it, for 
deals once sanctions are lifted.

calls from Americans inquiring about the 
risks of visiting here. 

“They say, *We got this invitation to 
visit from the Iraqi government,’ ” a source 
said, “and the first question they ask is, 
‘Will they kill us if we come?’ ” 

The company officials are informed that 
the Iraqis win not kill than, but that the 
U.S. government may prosecute them 

since travel to Iraq on U.S. passports is 
restricted- Some U.S. companies are said 
to be getting around this by having Iraqi 
visas stamped on pieces of paper, meeting 
Iraqi officials in Jordan or sending non- 
U.S. employees to Baghdad. 

Iraqi officials are about to launch anoth-

Israel Expels 
3 Palestinians 
Entering Gaza 
With Arafat 

Other Senior PLO Aides 
Barred Until 2 More 
Fugitives Are Found 

By David Hoffraan 

Washington Post Sennet 

JERUSALEM — Three Palestinians — 
two of them described as planners of one 
of the most infamousaltackseveron Israe- 
li civilians — were expelled Wednesday b\ 
Israel soon after they rode into the Gaza 
Strip in the motorcade of YasseT Arafat. 
Two others were still being sought. 

The three, who arrived Tuesday, were 
forced to cross back into Egypt late 

Israel barred other senior officials of the 
Palestine Liberation Organization from 
entering the self-rule areas of the Gaza 
Strip and Jericho until the two men still 
being sought were found and expelled. 

Among those in the Palestine National 
Authority' whom Israel said it would not 
admit pending the expulsions were Yasser 
Abed Rabbo, the minister of communica- 
tions, who is waiting in Jordan along with 
17 members of his PLO faction. Ahmed 
Qurei, the economics minister, was also 
scheduled to arrive in the self-rule area 
Friday and would be held up unless the 
two Palestinians were found. Israeli offi- 
cials said. 

Two of those expelled Wednesday were 
described by Israel as “directly responsi- 
ble” for pl annin g the 1974 attack on an 
Israeli school in Maalot that left 21 teen- 
agers dead. An Israeli soldier and three 
Palestinian guerrillas also were killed in 
the attack. 

The other Palestinians being expelled, 
including the two being sought, are ac- 
cused of pl annin g other violent attacks 
against Israelis. 

The discovery that the Palestinians had 
entered Gaza with Mr. Arafat touched off 
an uproar among Israeli politicians. 

The. Israeli foreign minister. Shimon 
Peres, said it was an “unpleasant trick." 
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin said of the 
Palestinians. *T believe they have to lea -n 
the lesson that they cannot cheaL” 

Mr; Rabin accused Mr. Arafat's entou- 
rage of hying to smuggle the men into 
Gaza in the motorcade. 

Rightist opposition politicians attacked 
the government over the incident. Benja- 
min Begin, a member of Parliament, said 
Mr. Rabin had also granted permission for 
the entry of Amin Hindi; Israel has de- 
scribed him as a planner of the 1972 mas- 
sacre of 1 1 Israeli athletes at the Munich 

Mr. Begin said Mr, Arafat was "ulti- 
mately responsible for all the planning and 
execution of so many terrorist attacks suc- 
cessfully perpetrated against Israelis all 
these years.” Two small opposition parties 
submitted a no-confidence motion in the 
Parfiaineat over the incident, which will be 
debated next week. 

Palestinian officials did not defend the 
move and tried to defuse the criticism. 

“The four iried to get into Gaza illegally. 
thinking they would sneak in with Arafat." 
said Major General Nasser Yousef, com- 
mander of the Palestinian police force, “if 
was illegal, but we solved the problem and 
it is all over.” Although Genera! Y'ousef 
referred to four men. Israeli authorities 
said five were involved.

Rabin, said the Palestinians were supposed

Patten Blames 
China for Jitters 
In Hong Kong 

By Edward A Gargan 

New York Tunes Service 

HONG KONG — At times battered by 
ferocious criticism from Beijing, and at 
times ignored, Hong Kong’s governor on 
Wednesday vigorously defended his pro- 
gram of local democratization and lashed 
out at the Chinese government for under- 
mining confidence in the colony in the 
three years before Britain surrenders sov- 

Mixing sarcasm with passion, anger 
with fervor. Governor Chris Patten placed 
blame for the growing nervousness among 
many people in Hong Kong about China’s 
looming takeover squarely on the shoul- 
ders of Bering's leaders. 

In an interview at his office in the gover- 
nor’s residence, the man who is probably 
Britain’s last governor here said that confi- 
dence in the colony could assured 
by Beijing. 

M I have never sought to deny that they 
can come in and throw out the Legislative 
Council, the directly elected local govern-

Panicked Rwandans 
Swarm Into Zaire 

Cenfdedby Our Staff From Dapasdvs 

GOMA, Zaire — Driven by 
fear, hundreds of thousands of 
Hutu refugees in western 
Rwanda overwhelmed a tiny 
border crossing and flooded 
into Zaire on Wednesday, aid 
workers said. 

The aid workers said they 
may be facing one of the 
world’s biggest humanitarian 

A Red Cross official estimat- 
ed that, starting late Wednes- 
day, refugees were crossing the 
border at the rate of 10,000 an 
hour along a tiny road just 
north of Goma. 

' The refugees were fleeing 
ahead of the Rwandan Patriotic 

Front, the Tutsi rebel group 
of the 

that holds two-thirds ol 
country and is advancing west 
against the remaining govern- 
ment troops. 

The crossing point — 
mann ed by one guard on a dirt 
road — was overrun after Zair- 
ian officials closed the main 
c ross ing, at Goma. Aid workers 
and reporters who had used 
Goma as their base for western 
Rwanda, were allowed to cross 
back into Zaire at Goma, but 
only on foot. Cars had to be left 
in Rwanda. 

Behind those first Rwandan 
refugees, one aid worker esti- 
mated that I million refugees — 
“a wall of people” — were seen 
Wednesday on a 40-kilometer 
(25-mile) stretch of road from 
Ruhengeri to Gisenyi. 

Gisenyi across the border 
from Goma, is the stronghold 
of Rwanda’s interim govern- 

ment, made up of members of 
its Hutu majority. 

Rebels have threatened to 
inarch on to Gisenyi if the Hutu 
leaders who encouraged the 
massacre of an estimated 
200,000 people — mostly Tutsi 
civilians and Hutu opposition 
leaders — were not apprehend- 

"The situation is bad,” said 
Johanna Grom bach, bead of 
the International Committee of 
the Red Cross in Goma. “It is a 
h umani tarian catastrophe.” 
“The needs are too much, just 
too much for the ICRC,” Miss 
Grombach said. “We cannot 
feed all these people. The medi- 
cal needs are also enormous.” 
The charity Doctors Without 
Borders said it would begin op- 
erating in the government-held 
area of Rwanda on Thursday. 
But an official said, “It’s a huge 
and challenging task, and 
frankly we just do not have the 
capacity, the means, to cope 
with the situation.” 

The French military in Goma 
on a humanitarian mission also 
said the situation was critical. 

u We are witnessing a dramat- 
ic level of a humanitarian cri- 
sis,” said Colonel Didier Bol- 
leU, a military spokesman. 
“And what is needed is massive 
injection of funds, massive sup- 

Political analysis say only an 
immediate end to the rebels’ ad- 
vance will ease the situation, 
but French intelligence officers 
say they have detected no such 
signs from the Front.

LAGOS — Pressured by a 
led at 

crippling oil strike aims 
ousting the military regime, Ni- 
geria's leaders promised 
Wednesday to release impris- 
oned union officials and hinted 
that they would free the man 
who apparently was elected 
president last year. 

The military government of 
General Sard Abacfaa, faced 
with the sdffest challenge to its 
hard-line rule, met throughout 
the day while widespread 
strikes continued to strangle the 

economy of this nation of 90 
million people. 

Thousands of managers in 
the oil industry, including engi- 
neers and supervisors on off- 
shore rigs, joined the strike on 

The government was unusu- 
ally conciliatory Wednesday, 
but did not address the mam 
demand of a broad-based labor 
coalition: that the government 
resign and give power to Mo- 
shood K.O. Abiola, the busi- 
nessman who apparently won 

the June 12, 1993, election that 
was voided by the military. 

Information Minister Jerry 
Gana invited union leaders to 
meet with the government, an 
offer the union had rejected ear- 
lier Wednesday. 

The government also said it 
would release union leaders 
who were jailed when o3 work- 
ers triggered a series of strikes 
by trade unions on July 4. 

Most significantly. Mr. Gana 
said the government would not 
oppose the release of Chief 

Abiola, who was arrested after 
he declared hims elf president in 
June to mark the first anniver- 
sary of the presidential election 
aimed at ending a decade of 
militazy rule. 

Chief Abiola has been 
charged with treason in the fed- 
eral court in Abiga. 

He has a bail bearing sched- 
uled for Thursday, and his re- 
lease may be imminent as the 
government seeks to placate 
growing grass-roots opposition 
to its role.

Seeing Spies Everywhere, China Acts 


BEIJING — China has 
stepped up state security with 
the adoption of new laws to 
counter internal dissent and 
what it calls ceaseless espionage 
by foreign governments. 

Prime Minister Li Peng pro- 
mulgated the regulations, 
passed in May by the cabinet, 
on June 4, the Fifth anniversary 
of the Chin ese Army crack- 
down on pro-democracy pro- 
tests, but they were published 
by the Legal Daily only on 

Under the regulations, for- 
eign institutions, organizations 
and foreigners in China will be 
considered hostile if they fi- 
nance, collude with or engage in 
subversive activities endanger- 
ing state security, the newspa- 
per said. 

Subversion, instigation of re- 
bellion and sabotage by over- 
seas espionage agencies in Chi- 
na have never ceased, according 
to the State Security Ministry. 

The official media periodi- 
cally report the capture of al- 

leged overseas spies, most of 
whom are said to work for Tai- 

The regulations define sub- 
versive activities as: the organi- 
zation of terrorist activities, the 
fabrication or distortion of 
facts or the spreading of views 
that endanger stare security, 
and the use of religion to incite 
ethnic strife. 

Those who cause severe harm 
to the state by shielding crimi- 
nal activities or hindering state 
security work win be punished, 
the newspaper said.

Smoker’s Killer in Japan Won’t Be Jailed 


TOKYO — A man who caused a smoker's 
death by kicking him after he lit a cigarette in 
a no-smoking area at a Japanese railroad 
station has received a three-year suspended 

Knzuo Kuwahara. 28. received the sentence 
from the district court in Urawa, north of 
Tokyo, on Tuesday. Anti-smoking activists 
had called for leniency in the case. 

Mr. Kuwahara had pleaded guilty to caus- 
ing bodily harm resulting in the death of 

Hideo Sugiura. a 57-ycar-old housepainter. 

The defendant had submitted a written 
statement telling the court he could not toler- 
ate what be called violent smoking that might 
harm other people. 

The incident took place on March 7 when 
Mr. Kuwahara, an office worker, found him- 
self alongside Mr. Sugiura on a suburban 
station platform. 

Seeing the older man smoking in a no- 
smoking area, Mr. Kuwahara elbowed him in

West Takes a New Tack to Fight Child Sex Trade Overseas 

By Charles P. Wallace 

Las Angela Tuna Service 

BANGKOK — Early last year, a retired 
Swedish dvil servant was arrested during a police 
raid in the beach resort of Pattaya. and charged 
with molesting a 13-y ear-old boy in his hotel 
room. As is common in prosecutions involving 
child prostitution in Aria, the case never went to 

Instead, the Swede was released on 54.000 bail 
and left the country. Since Sweden has no extra- 
dition treaty with Thailand, it appeared that his 
legal problems were over. 

After returning to Sweden, however, he re- 
ceived a shock. The state prosecutor, Sven -Erik 
Affirm, informed him that he was being officially 
investigated — the formal stage before prosecu- 
tion — for violating Sweden’s own child molesta- 
tion law with his activities in Thailand. It is the 
first time Swedish authorities have contemplated 
using the 30-year-old law for crimes involving 
children overseas, Mr. Alhem said. 

While the Swedish traveler maintains his inno- 
cence and prosecutors are still awaiting evidence 
from Thailand before proceeding, the case has 
become the opening skirmish in a novel, world- 
wide legal battle to curb the flourishing trade in 
child prostitutes. 

In the past year, Germany, France and Aus- 
tralia have proposed tough legal measures to 
discourage their citizens from traveling abroad 
for child prostitution. In the United States, Sen- 
ate and House versions. of a law on child abuse 
overseas have been sent to a joint congressional 
committee along with the rest of the current 
crime bilL 

Child prostitution is one of the saddest 
scourges in developing Asia. Every year, thou- 
sands of men from Western Europe, the United 
States and Australia fly into Southeast Asia in 
search of children, bom boys and girls, as sex 
partners or to use in pornography. Some poor 
parents in developing countries sell their chil- 
dren into a kind of slavery, while governments 
desperate for tourist dollars turn a blind eye. 

Previously, efforts to control the trade have 
largely failed because of corruption. Now, how- 
ever, efforts around the world have been galva- 
nized in a campaign to adopt strict laws in the so- 
called “consumer” countries to discourage men 
from venturing overseas for underage sex. 

The campaign is being spearheaded by a small 
group called End Child Prostitution m Asian 
Tourism, which was founded in Bangkok is 3990 
during an international conference on tourism. It 
has offices in 26 countries. 

“Our goal is to let people know that if they 

want a child prostitute in Thailand or elsewhere 
in Aria, (hat they are doing something illegal," 
said Sudarat S. Stisang, a Thai social worker who 
became the group's executive director. “Before, 
there was this attitude that it was O.KL, that there 
was an acceptance in this part of the world. Well, 
it’s no longer O.K.” 

Although precise statistics are not available, 
Mr. Sudxrat's group estimates that nearly 1 mil- 
lion children are involved in As iaVsex trade, 
including 300,000 to 400,000 in India, 200,000 to 
300,000 in Thailand, 100,000 each in die Philip- 
pines and Taiwan, 40,000 in Vietnam and 30,000 
w Sri Tanka. A recent report suggested that war- 
devastated Cambodia is fast becoming a haven 
for child prostitution. 

The proposed UjS. law would expand (he 
Mann Act, which makes it an offense to travel 
across state lines for immoral purposes, to make 
it a felony to travel outride the united States to 
engage in any sexual act with a minor (hat would 
be illegal in America. It would also be illegal for 
Americans to traffic in dnhl pornography 

Enforced by a special Justice Department of- 
fice, the proposal calls for punishment of 10 
years’ imprisonment for a fist offense and 20 
years for a second offense. Civil liberties advo- 
cates had initially questioned whether it was 

legal to try someone in the United States for a 
crime committed overseas. But legal experts said,/ 
this coraept of “extraterritoriality” hay been; 
upheld m sue* cases as the one against' the ; 
farmer P anaman ian leader Manuel Antonio . 
Noriega, who was tried and convicted in Miami 
on eight counts of racket e ering, conspiracy and 

Late last year, Germany enacted a law provid- 
mg for prison, sentences of up to 10 years for any* 
German who engages in sexual practices with a" 
c hild under 14, even if the crime takes place in a 
fore ign c ounty. France also adoptedpunitive 
measures, while Britain promised to provide 
Asian countries with- fists of known British pedo- 
philes so they can be kept out by immi gration 
officials. .

U-S- Weighs Mandatory Identity Cards 

NEW YORK — The United States; in a response to its 
inability to control illegal immigration, may soon ask every 
American to cany a national identity card that would be 
required when applying for. work or social. benefits. 

Called an “Employee Verification Registration,” the card 
would include a photograph, a magnetic strip with statistiail 
information, a Social Security number and, possibly, finger- 
prints, CBS News reported. 

The card could be propo.sed by the U.S. Commission on 
Immigration Reform, a bipartisan group that CBS said had 
already discussed the concept with the White House, which 
tentatively endorsed the idea. 

The card would be required when applying for work or 
social benefits and would be phased in by age groups over 
several years, CBS said. (Reuters)

Catholics Mobilize to Block Coverage for Abortions 

• By Peter Steinfels 

Ne» Tark-Tunes Semcc 

NEW YORK —Tlie nation’s Roman Catholic 
bishops have warned Congressional leaders that 
they are mobilizing Bullions of church members 
against any health care plan that requires all 
health insurers to cover abortion as part of a 
standard package of benefits. 

In a letter to congressional leaders this week, 
the bishops reaffirmed their support for chang- 
ing the health system to achieve universal cover- 
age. But they promised “vigorous opposition” to 
any health plan that includes a requirement of 
abortion coverage. 

Although the bishops have stated this position 
repeatedly, they have watched with consterna- 
tion as each of tte five draft health bills that have 
passed congressional committees has included a 
requirement for abortion coverage. 

“We haven't been listened to,” said Helen 
Alvare, a spokeswoman for the the National 
Conference of Catholic Bishops. “It was our 
hope that by now we would have been able to 
impress on members of Congress the dramatic 
violation of our conscience that inclusion of 
abortion would be.” 

Most private health plans include coverage of 

abortions, but Catholics and others have the 
choice of buying insurance that does not include 

Rrauiring such coverage in a uniform national 
benefits package “will force millions of employ- 
ers, churches and individuals to subsidize abor- 
tion in violation of their consciences," the bish- 
ops* letter said, and “will jeopardize the future of 
Catholic and other religious providers of health 

The letter, sent to 30 leaders of Congress, was 
signed by Archbishop W illiam H. Keeler of Bal- 
timore president of the bishops conference. Car- 
dinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles, chairman 
at its Pro-Life Committee, and Bishop John R. 
Ricard of Baltimore, who serves on the bishops’ 
Domestic Policy Committee. 

Church officials around the country are now 
beginning a stepped-up effort to press their op- 
position in visits to political leaders and to mobi- 
lize parishes, church organizations and the exten- 
sive Roman Catholic hospital system, in hopes 
that members will make their views known to 

Church officials said they hoped that when 
ressional leaders and the White House craft 
health legislation in the coming weeks, it 

will be apparent that the political costs of includ- 
ing abortion services will outweigh the benefits. 

In effect, the Catholic leaders are offering a 
carrot and a stick. They have pledged their 
strong support for a major overhaul of health 
care that includes universal coverage, so long as 
it excludes abortion services. But they have also 
marii» it dear that a plan that includes abortion 
coverage will face organized opposition from 
Catholic leaders and groups. 

The abortion issue is one of the biggest con- 
cerns of the Democratic strategists trying to 
piece together a majority for a health care bill. 
Their fear is that coming down on either side will 
cost votes. With Democratic leaders increasingly 
aware of how narrow a margin they may be 
working with to pass a bill, the hunt will be 
intense for some land of compromise. 

Last month Hillary Rodham Clinton seemed 
to open the door to a strategic retreat, even on 
abortion, saying: “It is very difficult to tell exact- 
ly where we are going to have to make whatever 

Abortion rights advocates, who note that most 
Americans already have abortion services cov- 
ered in private insurance plans, have vowed to 

fight any effort to remove abortion from any 
new, standard benefits package. 

“While everyone respects tSe dictates of indi- 
vidual conscience, we strongly oppose the bish- 
ops’ plan to impose their views on women's 
reproductive health on society as a whole,” said 
James Wagoner, executive vice president of the 
National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Ac- 
tion League. 

The dual position — support for universal 
coverage and strong opposition to including - 
abortion services — distinguishes the bishops’ 
position from that of some conservative Chris- 
tian groups who not only oppose abortion but 
also oppose virtually any major health-care 

It is also central to the bishops’ hope for 
mobilizing Catholics well beyond the usual cir- 
cles of fervent abortion foes, such as Catholic 
doctors and nurses and church members working 
with low-income and minority populations. 

In the health proposals before Congress, pub- 
lic funds would subsidize the insurance of poor 
people, and thus abortion coverage for them. But 
the Catholic leaders are objecting more broadly 
to the proposed requirement that all the coun- 
try's insurance plans include abortion coverage.

Blood Tests on Glove Reported to Find 
DNA Links to Simpson and Slain Pair 

more grown up.

NONEMERGENCY EXIT — President BiH Cfinfon and the first lady walking past an 
escape chtite that was accidentally deployed on Air Force One after it landed at Andrews 
Air Force Base, Maryland. The Clintons were returning from their European trip. 

The Assoatned Press 

LOS ANGELES — Blood on a glove found at 
OJ. Simpson's estate contained DNA material 
from Mr. Simpson and the two persons he is 
accused of killing, according to a Los Angeles 
television station. 

Tests on blood from the glove showed a 
“strong probability" of a DNA match with blood 
from Mr. Simpson, his former wife and her 
friend, KCBS-TV reported, citing sources close 
to the investigation. The use of such genetic 
testing as evidence has been challenged in some 
California courts. 

The test results received by the district attor- 
ney came from a right-hand glove found at Mr. 
Simpson’s estate after the June 12 killings of 
Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald L. Goldman, 
the report said. 

A left-hand glove was found at the scene of the 
killings, in front of Ms. Simpson’s condominium. 
The authorities believe the two gloves are a 
matched set. 

Meanwhile, investigators took hair samples 
from Mr. Simpson, 47, the actor and former 
football star, and asked the district attorney to 
file charges against Al Cowlings, who drove the 
white Ford Bronco seen by millions on national 
television June 17 as it was followed by several 

E llice care over 60 miles of Los Angeles area 

Mr. Simpson was in the back seat, holding a 
- to his head at times. He had fled after 
learning he was about to be charged with mur- 
dering Ms. Simpson, 35, and Mr. Goldman, 25. 
Mr. Cowlings is a boyhood friend and a former 
National Football League teammate of Mr. 



When they arrived in Mr. Simpson's driveway, 
Mr. Cowlings was arrested for investigation of 
aiding his friend's escape and freed on $250,000 

The district attorney could decide to file 
charges, drop the case or ask for further investi- 
gation. A decision is expected before Mr. Cow- 
lrngs's scheduled court appearance Friday. 

Robert L. Shapiro, Mr. Simpson’s lawyer, has 
said Mr. Simpson planned to go to his former 
wife's grave and kill himself, but Mr. Cowlings 
talked him out of it. 

Detectives collected hair from Mr. Simpson, 
who is held without bail at the Los Angeles 
County Central Men’s Jafl. A judge had ruled 
that up to 100 hairs could be taken for compari- 
son with those in a knit cap found at the scene of 
the killings. The authorities have said they want 
to use DNA testing to compare the hairs. 

■ Defense Prepares Motions 

Lawyers for Mr. Simpson have begun prepar- 
ing a battery of motions in an attempt to under- 
mine the prosecution case and to bolster their 
client's plea of innocence, the Los Angeles Tunes 
reported, quoting Mr. Shapiro. 

“We are only going to file motions that are 
legally supportable and that support O J.’s inno- 
cence,” said Mr. Shapiro, who heads the high- 
profile legal team. 

Among the motions being drafted, Mr. Sha- 
piro said, is one to dismiss the case based on the 
lack of prosecution evidence presented during 
the prdiminaiy hearing. 

Another motion will contest evidence ob- 
tained during a warrantless search of Mr. Simp- 
son's home and another will challenge evidence 
seized under a subsequent search warrant. 

Human Error Is Blamed for Downing of Helicopters Over Iraq 


Pentagon said Wednesday that 
the “friendly fire" shooting 
down of two U.S. helicopters 
over Iraq was caused by human 
error, and Defense Secretary 
William J. Perry called it “a 
tragedy that never should have 

Mr. Perry said a two-month 
inquiry concluded that the pi- 

lots of two F-15C fighters who 
shot down the helicopters and 
the crew of an Airborne Warn- 
ing and Control System plane 
monitoring flights in the area 
had made several mistakes that 
led to the tragedy. 

The defense secretary said 
that he would send the report to 
U.S. commanders responsible 
for operations in the area and 
that it would be up to them to 

decide on any disciplinary ac- 

The report made dear that 
human errors, particularly in 
communication, were primarily 
responsible for the April 14 
tragedy, in which the F-15Cs 
fired missiles al a pair of U.S. 

Army UH-60 Blackhawk heli- 

They mistook them for Iraqi 
helicopters over a “no-flight” 

AD 26 people on the helicop- 
ters died, including 15 Ameri- 
cans. most of whom were mili- 

tary personnel, five Kurds and 
three officers from Turkey, two 
from Britain and one from 

"The accident was caused by 
a breakdown in command guid- 
ance and supervision ana the 
misidentification of the Black- 

hawks," said the chief investi- 
gating officer. Major General 
James Andrus. 

He dted the fact that the F- 
15 pilots were unaware that 
Blackhawks were operating in 
the area and listed a series of 
mistakes by the AWACS crew.

SribtlUC The American President Has Devalued Clout The World 


No, Don’t Invade Haiti 

If tbc Clinton administration is look- 
ing for a pretext to invade Haiti — a 
distinct possibility — it has just been 
handed a dandy one. The army-backed 
government’s abrupt expulsion of foreign 
human rights monitors is a defiant slap at 
the United Nations and the Organization 
of American States. By threatening the 
safely of these international civil ser- 
vants, Lieutenant General Raoul Cedras 
and his crew have conveniently inter- 
nationalized what has been essentially a 
domestic political crisis, finessing the ob- 
jection that an invasion would violate 
Haitian sovereignty, ft is a conscious 
provocation, daring Washington to over- 
ride domestic skepticism and invade. 

But unless force is literally needed to 
protect the monitors' lives, the adminis- 
tration should sit tight and settle down to 
a policy of sanctions, sanctuary and in- 
tensified international diplomacy. 

An invasion will not create a work- 
able Haitian political system, win re- 
gional respect or set a constructive pre- 
cedent for the use of force in post-Cold 
War foreign policy. There is no guaran- 
tee of a quick exit or acclaim from the 
Haitian population, even the pro-Aris- 
tide majority. And it is not supported by 
Congress or American public opinion. 

Nevertheless, invasion is a seductive 

idea to some in the White House and the 
State Department because of frustration 
with the insolent behavior of Haiti’s 
generals, a desire to refute doubts that 
this a dmini stration is prepared to use 
force, and fear of the political conse- 

3 ucnces of the continued massive exo- 
ns of Haitian refugees. 

The better, if less dramatic, policy is 
to let recently Lightened international 
sanctions do their work, pressuring 
countries like France to suspend com- 
mercial flights and cooperate in arrange, 
ing refugee resettlement; and to find : 
enough safe haven sites, including some 
in the Uni Led Slates, to assure that no 
fleeing Haitian is forced to return home. 

Force is a blunt instrument. It cannot 
solve political problems. It kills people, 
including American troops, who should 
be asked to die only when vital national 
interests are involved. It punches holes in 
the international legal order. It is some- 
times necessary but must be only a last 
resort. Democracy and human rights are 
national U.S. interests. But except for 
refugees, what is going on in Haiti affects 
only Haiti. Fear of the political conse- 
quences of admitting legally qualified but 
politically unpopular refugees is not a 
very good reason for invading a country. 

W ashington —it is bard 
to develop a new vision of 
the world when you have so many 
thumbs stuck in your cye. From 
Panama to Paiis,-from Bey ing to 
Belgrade, foreign leaders are 
showing little awe or respect for 
President Bill Clinton as he tries 
to reassure his own domestic au- 
dience about his leadership abili- 
ties in foreign policy. 

In capital after capital, the 
president's peers have concluded 

By Jim Haagland 

Passports for Lebanon 

- Why does the United Slates still block 
the use of most American citizens' pass- 
ports for travel to Lebanon? The official 

” reason is to ensure the security of Amer- 
> ican citizens in a place prone to lerror- 
>. ism. But the old sort of terrorism is in 
.> remission. The United States so ac- 
•» knowledged when the Justice Depan- 

- meat announced last year that it was no 
l longer extending “temporary protected 

status” to Lebanese nationals in .Ameri- 
ca to let them overstay their visas. The 
last American hostage. Terry Anderson, 
came out at the end of 1991. 

Ignoring the ban. some 40,000 Leba- 
nese- Americans went back last year. 
*• mostly for Family visits, without a single 
incident. In Congress, leaders of both 
t. parties endorse lifting the seven-year-old 
-* passport ban in favor of a travel advisory 

- of warning, which leaves the decision to 
travel in each American’s hands. 

Lebanon still has a good way to go to 
recover fully from a riviJ war that 
_ wrecked national life from 1975 to 1990. 
^ Yet it is springing ahead in physical 
■- reconstruction, without foreign aid. and 
its political rehabilitation goes about as 
well as it can while the country remains 

- the victim of a double occupation, by 
’ Syria and Israel 

. *- The American passport ban is an es- 
■ I; pedally unkind cut, coming from a 

country ihat professes friendship and 
eqjoys diplomatic ties with Lebanon. 
Under the ban, some Americans ignor- 
ing it have had their passports lifted. 
The ban hurts travel and tourism, keeps 
American business from going after big 
infrastructure projects in Lebanon ana 
belittles Lebanese pluck. No other coun- 
try enforces a simitar restriction. 

The State Department's caution is un- 
derstandable; nobody over there in Fog- 
gy Bottom can want to become known 
as the diplomat who opened up travel to 
Lebanon just as Hezbollah got back into 
hostage- taking. But Americans would 
still be on notice to be careful 

Meanwhile, in Beirut and elsewhere, 
the suspicion circulates that Washing- 
ton is holding back this diplomatic favor 
as a card to be played not in a bilateral 
relationship of modest consequence but 
in the grander diplomatic game. This 
frustrates the Lebanese. 

They know that their time will come 
in the Mideast peace talks only when 
Syria and Israel so determine. Rather 
than waiting to be rewarded later for a 
peace move that they would eagerly 
make today if they could, they prefer to 
be encouraged and strengthened now. 
The burden is on the State Department 
to show why it cannot lift the ban. 


Minuses and Pluses 

It is no secret that President Bill Clin- 
ton is trying to demonstrate to the 
American public that he is capable of 
. consistent, credible foreign policy lead- 
ership. On that score, the summit meet- 
ing of industrial democracies in Naples, 
the centerpiece of his latest European 
' tour, was a missed opportunity. 

It is also no secret that it is not as easy 
- nowadays for a U.S. president to domi- 
' nate the world stage. Absent a common 
: Soviet threat, America is seen as one 
■ more player in a complex and increas- 
. ingly parochial post-Cold War world. 

In the past, for example, Mr. Clinton’s 
' plea to the industrialized nations to open 
. their markets to Eastern Europe might 
have commanded a respectful hearing; 

’ troubled by unemployment, the industri- 
alized nations turned a deaf ear. 
i Unfortunately, President Clinton and 
1 his team created problems of their own. 
The trip was marked by an informal 
clumsiness and lacked any theme or 
thread. He began inauspiciously with an 
odd, disengaged speech in Washington 
that seemed deliberately to ignore any 
foreign policy issues cot directly related 
to trade and jobs — even though sub- 
jects like Rwanda, Haiti. Bosnia and 
North Korea were sure to come up at the 
Naples meeting. Later, in Naples, Mr. 
Clinton asserted that be saw no need to 
“overreact” to the dollar’s decline; when 
the dollar immediately tumbled further, 
his staff, always on damage-control 
alert, hurried to explain that he had not 
ruled out measures to support it. 

At another point, he made a modest 
last-minute proposal for further trade lib- 
eralization. His surprised European col- 
leagues rebuffed him. Mr. Clinton would 
have done better to consult them in ad- 
vance. especially since an earlier* broader 
agreement has not yet been ratified. 

But these bumbles and stumbles were 
not nearly as significant as his larger 
failure to see Naples as a chance to de- 

fine, for Americans as well as Europeans, 
how today’s tussles over exchange rates 
and trade agreements relate to the larger 
goals of reducing unemployment in the 
West and consolidating democracy and 
markets in the Conner Soviet empire. 

Moreover, President Clinton might 
have used some of his time to coordinate 
with his allies on specific crises like 
Haiti and Rwanda, where there are 
sharp disagreements. The issues that 
Mr. Clinton tried to ignore forced their 
way onto the agenda anyway. On his 
first day in Europe, his own Pentagon 
upstaged him with leaks about comman- 
dos rehearsing to invade Haiti. Then 
Panama reneged on a plan to shelter 
refugees, forcing his traveling staff to 
scramble for explanations. 

The Naples gathering itself began un- 
der the shadow of the unexpected death 
of Kim n Sung in North Korea, And it 
closed with Boris Yeltsin sidestepping 
Mr. Clinton's calls to withdraw Russian 
troops from the Baltics by the end of 
next month. So much for the illusion of 
an economics-oriented, photo-opportu- 
nity summit conference. 

Elsewhere, the president got other is- 
sues just right, ably resisting the tempta- 
tion to tell his hosts what they wanted to 
hear. In Riga, Latvia, he supported the 
sovereignty of the Baltic countries, 
while chiding their provocative treat- 
ment of Russians stranded inside their 
borders. In Warsaw, he made the most 
of NATO’s newly formed Partnership 
for Peace, but he rightly deferred the 
question of full NATO membership for 
Eastern Europe. 

Overall, it was a journey of bits and 
pieces, none of which collected them- 
selves into a satisfying whole. As such, it 
was another illustration of the disconti- 
nuity between policy and presentation 
that has plagued Uus administration 

that has plagued 
from the start.

that Mr. dm ton’s coattails do 
not reach overseas. They act as if 
they have little to lose m disput- 
ing or defying trim, and little to. 
gain in making him look good. 

The willingness of America's 
allies to upstage this president 
was as apparent at last week’s 
summit of the Group of Seven 
industrial democracies as it was 
in the thumb-in- the-eye defiance 
of Mr. Clinton's diplomatic ini- 
tiatives by the thugs of Haiti and 
the e thni c cleansers of Serbia. 

In the space of a few hours. 

In each of these cases the 
mouse twisted the lion’s paw in- 
stead of taking the thorn out. 

Mr. Clinton’s position on the 
substance of these issues was es- 
sentially right. There was not 
some tenable mistake or over- 
bearing altitude on the part of the 
American leaders to compel oth- 
ers to take their distance; This 
makes the disappearance of the 
American premium in interna- 
tional politics all the more strik- 
ing, and troubling. 

For half a century, the ability

ly. Grateful electorates consis- 
tently promoted or returned their 
Americanologbts to office. 

For Liberar Democrats in Ja- 
pan and Christian Democrats in 
Germany and Italy, for satraps 
in Zaire and the Philippines, cal- 
rivaling or monopolizing the . 
American connection was a ca- 
reer in itself. The American pre- 
mium could decide elections, or 
keep the army in line. 

That obviously changed with 
the disappearance of the Soviet 
threat, which dramatically . re- 
duced the urgency of the need to 
cooperate with Washington. And 
America's budget deficits ended, 
the chances for U-S. largesse 
abroad. These are changes that 
President Clinton did not cause, 
as his advisers anxiously stressed 
during briefings for reporters in 
Naples about the president’s low- 
key performance thee. 

“There has been an evolution 
in America’s appropriate role in- 

leadeohro BUI Clinton is Hying to .

In Pyongyang , AU Bawling in Unison ^ 

By Flora Lewis 

P ARIS — The scenes from Pyongyang televi- 
sion after the death of Kim IT Sung were 
scarier and in a way more mysterious than 
North Korea's atomic secrets. 

They showed a dense and endless sea of peo- 
ple — boys and girls, old women, stiff-backed 
generals in uniform, even the honor guard and 
the television announcer — all bawling like 
frightened babies. There was one single expres- 
sion on aU those faces. 

How on earth do they do that to people? 

No doubt there is a collective sense of danger 
and loss. They have been told so insistently and 
for so long about vicious enemies preparing to 
attack, and that they could only rely on the self- 
proclaimed Great Leader. 

When Stalin died in 19S3, many in the Soviet 
Union felt, above alL dread of an unknown 

future. "We thought it was like losing 100 divi- 
sions,*' a Russian told me later. 

The mass mania of the Cultural Revolution 
and China’s success in isolating its billion peo- 
ple in those years was a similar phenomenon. 
How long will it take for the North Koreans to 
regain some sense of human normalcy? 

Pyongyang’s decision to forbid entry ctf all 
foreigners until after Rim B Sung’s funeral (very 
few are admitted in the best of tunes) suggests 
that the remaining leaders are not at all sure of 
what they have created. What lies behind those 
agonized robotic masks? 

In any case, they are a reminder that our 
i nstant communications aren't all that globaL 
North Korea is worrisome because we can’t see in 
beyond what it chooses to display. But we must 
alio realize that they haven’t been able to see out 
for generations. So they all bawl in unison. . 

C Flora Lewis. 

tated the Diet’s stopgap cboice of 
Tonmchi Murayama as prime 
minister. But then' action also 
reflects an apparent feeling in 
the Diet that Japan had tittle to 
lose in its American relations by 
' choosing a Socialist as the na- 
tion's dnef executive. 

- Japan's conservatives were un- 
able to show that their continued 
presence in office would' give Ja- 
pan any political advantage in 
dealing with Washington. The 
Cimtnn . adminis tration said as 
much in pushing trade negotia- 
fi rm* to toe brink and proclaim- 
ing that Washington would no 
longer make concessions oneco- 
nomic matters to allies. 

. The cancellation of the Ameri- 
- can premium in international 
politics is no doubt inevitable and 
.perhaps appropriate. But the 
president has to find effective 
new incentives, and punishments, 
to go with, the “respect” he wants 
' ' to offer other countries if he is to 
have an effective foreign policy.

Beware, This Decline of the Dollar Is Dangerous 

N EW YORK — President Bfll 
Clinton has made dear from 
Naples that his policy is to leave 
the dollar alone. Unsupported, it 
has continued to fah. 

The White House, its denials 
notwithstanding, sees this as 
more of a benefit than a problem 
in American trade, especially 
with Japan. Most important, it 
feels that a falling dollar hardly 
can do much harm to an economy 
as large and robust as America’s, 
especially when inflation is not a 
problem. So, the administration's 
policy is to sit back and watch 
the dollar come down until the 
currency market inevitably over- 
shoots and reverses itself. 

This policy might have made 
sense in the past, but not today. It 
fails to recognize that the worid 
has changed — and in no small 
part thanks to Mickey Kantor, 
the administration's own trade 

For many years, the biggest 
buyers of U.S. bonds and stocks 
were the very Japanese compa- 
nies and their financ ial institu- 
tions whose trade behavior Mr. 
Kantor has been trying to change. 
His policy of pushing up the yen 
has reversed their behavior in a 
way be may not have foreseen. _ 
The Japanese; realizing that it 
makes no sense for their insur- 
ance companies and pension 
funds to buy billions m U.S. 
Treasury notes and bonds when 
the dollar is falling, have simply 

By Geoffrey Bell 

stopped doing so — at least until 
they thin k the dollar has hit bot-

Who Cares About Slavery in Africa? 

By Charles Jacobs and Mohamed Athie 

N EWTON, Massachusetts — 
Last month. Amnesty Inter- 
national’s American branch de- 
cided it was time to abolish slav- 
ery. Presented with evidence of 
human bondage in North Africa, 
the members voted to add to an 
already crowded mandate the 
emancipation of chattel slaves. 

It may be hard to believe that 
in 1994 a new abolitionist move- 
ment is needed. 

Today, in the former French 
colony of Mauritania, where 
slavery was ended (on paper) in 
1980, the UJS. State Department 
estimates that 90,000 blacks Hve 
as the property erf Berbers. Per- 
haps 300,000 freed slaves con- 
tinue to serve their former mas- 
ters because of psychological or 
econo mi c dependence. 

Blacks in Mauritania were 
converted to Islam more than 
100 years ago. but while the Ko- 
ran forbids the enslavement of 
fellow Muslims, in this country 
race outranks religious doctrine. 

These people are chattel — 
used for labor, set and breed- 
ing, They may be exchanged for 
camels, trucks, 91 ns or money. 
Their children are the property 
of the master. 

A 1990 report by Human 
Rights Watch/ Africa said that 
m Mauritania routine punish- 
ments for tire slightest fault in- 
cluded beatings, denial of food 
and prolonged exposure to the 
son, with hands and feet tied 

together. “Serious” infringement 
of the master’s rule could mean 
prolonged tortures known as 
“the camel treatment,” the “in- 
sect treatment” and “burning 
coals” — none of which is fit to 
describe in a-famfly newspaper. 

To the east, in Sudan, slavery 
is a comeback, the re- 

sult of a 12 -year-dd war waged 

black Christian and animist 
south. Arab miHtias, armed by 
the government, raid villages, 
mostly those of the Dinka tribe, 
shoot the men and enslave the 
women and children. These are 
kept as personal property or 
mardsed north and sold. 

Many of tire children are auc- 
tioned off. Gaspar Biro, a Unit- 
ed Nations human rights moni- 
tor, returned^ from Sudan in 
March restarting that abducted 
children are often seat to camps 
that become 20th century slave 
markets. The price varies with 
supply. In 1989, a woman or 
child could be bough t for $90. 
In 1990, as the raids increased, 
the price fell to $15. 

Not only are their bodies in 
bondage. They are also stripped 
of tireur cultural, religious and 
personal identities. 

An investigator from Anti- 
Slavery International inter- 
viewed Abuk Thuc Akwar, a 13- 
year-dd girl who, along with 24 
other children, was seized by tire 
mffrn'a. maro hed north and given 

to a farmer. “Throughout the. 
day tire wodeed in Us so rg hum 
fields and at night in his bed. 
During tire marctidre was raped 
and called a black donkey/* the 
investigator wrote in a 1990 re- 
port. She escaped with tire help 
of the master’s jealous wife. 

Another report described 
Kon, a 13-year-old boy who was 

abducted by Arab nomads and. 
taken to a merchant’s house. 
There he found several Dinka 
mm hobbling, then: Achilles 
tendons cut because they re- 
fused to become Muslims. 

Threatened with the same 
treatment, tire boy converted. 
After six months, he escqred. 
Kon was lucky. Slaves caught 
.fleeing are often castrated or 
branded like cattle. 

Human rights groups arc tbc 
first to admit their failure to 
organize support for Africa’s 
slaves. Anti-Slavery Interna- 
tional is courageous but small 
and imdwrfinaflofti-

, Once theddlarb^ 
no one knows wdiaf might Mppen 
in the mmds of those foreign in- 
vestors. The White House may be 
right (and lucky), and the faU in 
the dollar may turn out to be 
temporary and _ modest. But a 
wave of selling could accelerate, 
forcing down the prices of bonds 
and forcing up long-term interest 
rates well beyond 8 percent. That 
would put the brakes cm growth, 
which is precisely what President 
Clinton does not want to happen. 

' A falling dollar already has 
brought Iri^rer interest rates. ^ Bir- 
adoxicafly, a sharp and immedi- 
ate increase in sberet-tenn interest 
rates by tire Federal Reserve 
might block tire steady path to 
even higher interest razes for 
long-term securities by reassuring 
investors that there is an end to 
the process now under way. 

- The White House wifi argue 
against this, warning that a rise erf 
half or one percentage point in 
short-term rates would jeopardize 
ing to stabilize the dollar is poten- 
tially an even bigger risk. The best 
policy is to do something quickly 
about raising interest rates, ar tire 
spiral may only go deeper. "

In Asia 

. By Kevin Murphy 

htieraadond Herald Tribune 

HONG KONG —The Chi- 
Ha-backed Apstar 1 communi- 
cations satellite has yet to be 
blasted into orbit, but it is al- 
ready rattling more than its 

laimffl pad. 

The Chinese government has 
apparently decided to allow. 
Apstar l’s launch next week but 
it has not yet been cleared either 
fay international regulators or 
by owners of the satellite’s pro- 
spective neighbors in space. 

At this point, Apstar l’s tar- 
geted dot is so dose to that of 
other satellites that most ana- 
lysts agree the move could 
cause cause interference, ham- 
pering the performance of other 

The brinkmanship also arises 
potentially complex questions 
for Apstar l’s cheats, many of 
whom are broadcasters keen to 
gain Asia-wide distribution 
equal to that now enjoyed by 
the industry leader STAR TV, 
owned by News Corp. 

Analysts said China’s ultimate 
course of action could cany ex- 
pensive consequences for the 
growing number of com panies 
involved in the race to expand 
broadcasting and teteromrmmi- 
catiorn services in Asia. 

Individual satellites cost up 
to $200 million and the lease of 
an individual transponder, or 
transmission point, on a satel- 
lite costs up to $1 millimi a year 
in Aria sow, but if a free-for-all 
developed in space it could 
force vast technical changes on 
existing earth-bound technol- 
ogy, with even greater costs. 

“Commercial investment in 
space is a very daring, very 
risky, highly capitalized busi- 
ness, where most of the invest- 
ment is actually on the ground,” 
said one senior industry consul- 
tant of the bunding controver- 
sy . "If the rules of the game are 
not being played by, the dam- 
age can go beyond the pride of 
one country."

the planned merger between

In a last-minute effort to 
thwart the purchase of QVC 
by CBS, Comcast, which is a 
minority shareholder in QVC 
stunned the entertainment in-

nouncing an uninvited bid to 
take over QVC. 

In a bizarre twist to tile plan 
to merge the top-rated US. 
television network with the 
largest home-shopping chan- 
nel, Comcast launched its bid 
just hours before the boards of 
CBS and QVC were scheduled 
to vote on their merger. 

CBS Chairman Laurence 

Tisch said Wednesday that he 
would not pursue the QVC ac- 
' ition. Barry Dflkr, QVCs 
said his board agreed to 
negotiate with Comcast.

phia, already owns 18 percent 
of QVC The company is the 
Hard-largest cable TV operator 
in the United States as well as a 
large provider of cdJular tele- 
phone services. Comcast also 
owns Muzak, a background 
music system. 

Comcast offered $44 a share 
for QVC, consisting of $37 a 
share of cash and $7 of a new 
series of 15 percent convertible 
preferred stock. % contrast, 
QVC stockholders would have 
received a mix of new CBS 
stock and convertible shares, 
but no cash from CBS. 

Shares of QVC surged on 

the news, gaining S6 on 
Wednesday to dose at $42. 

The stock had traded as high 
as $7250 last July amid hopes 
that Mr. Dffler would propel

For QVC, the surprise bid 
was an ironic turn. Only

Traders Skeptical 
As Dollar Noses Up 

OktyUedby Our Staff Fhm Dispatches 

NEW YORK — The dollar made a mild recovery Wednesday, 
breaking out of its recent cycle of decline, but dealers were 
unconvinced that market sentiment had changed from its previous 
bearishness toward the U.S. currency. 

“We’re seeing dollar stability as opposed to dollar strength,'* 
said Siobhan Lackey, a trader at Bank Julius Baer. “We might be 
reaching a bottom, but I don't think we’ve reached one just yet.” 
Modi of the upturn was characterized as short-covering by traders 
and speculators hoping to take profits after shorting the dollar’s 
recent downturn. 

The US. currency dosed at 15413 Deutsche marks, up from 
Tuesday’s ending price of 15280. It finished the day at 98.225 yen, 
up from 97325. 

The dollar received a boost Wednesday afternoon from specu- 
lation that the Federal Reserve Board was about to raise rates. 

“The market had been holding back from putting downward 
pressure on the dollar" in the event that the consumer price index 
rose strongly, “but they began to sell after it came out pretty much 
as expected” said Hartmut Voges. chief spot dealer at Nor- 
detnscfae Laxtdesbank in Hannover. 

“People are convinced that the fundamentals behind the dol- 
lar’s fan are still in place,” said Brian Martin, senior economist at 

“Tfs not dear yet that there’s a flow under the dollar," said 
Kathy Jones, currency analyst at Prudential Securities.

French Water Firm in Inquiry 

By Jacques Neher 

/ ntemationa l Herald Tribune 

PARIS — The stock of Com- 
pagnie Gtnfirale des Earn sEd 
Wednesday on a report that the 
Justice Ministry was looking 
into allegations that France’s 
largest water-distribution and 
waste-management company 
had made illegal political contri- 
butions to win public contracts. 

The company denied any im- 
contributions, but was 
to halt the slide in its 
Stock, which feD 22 percent, to 
541 francs ($102.92). 

Revelations of a pr eliminar y 
investigation into the contribu- 
tions by the satiric newspaper. 
Canard Enchain e, is the third 
such affair involving a French 
blue-dnp company in the past 
two months. 

In May, Didier Pinean-Va- 
lencienne, chairman of 
Schneider SA, was jailed for 
nearly two weeks in Brussels 
and charged with fraud in con- 
nection with the activities erf 
•two Belgian subsidiaries. Mr. 
Pmeau-Vafencienne, who de- 

nied any wrongdoing, is free on 
2 million francs (5380,500) 

Last week, Pierre Suard, 
chairman of Alcatel Alsthom, 
was held by police for a day and 
charged with fraud in connec- 
tion with improvements made 
at Iris personal residences at 
company expense. He claimed 
the improvements were restrict- 
ed to a security system that he 
needed because erf bis job. He 
was freed after posting a bond 

of 1 millio n francs. 
t The stock of Lyonnaise des 
Eaux-Dumez, a rival of G6nfer- 
ale des Burn, also was affected 
by news of the probe, but to a 
lesser degree. Lyonnaise shares 
slipped 1 franc, to 518 francs, 
on Wednesday. 

“Hie market is very nervous 
about this sector, which has al- 
ways been vulnerable to rumors 
of political payoffs," said a 
London analyst who follows the 
two companies. 

“It is thought that one way to 
win a contract in the waste- 
management, water-treatment 
or water-distribution business 

is to improve the status and life 
of the local public officials 
awarding the contract,” be said. 
“This investigation is the first 
confirmation that there may be 
something to tbe rumors.” 

Ova* the past two decades, 
about 80 percent of the public 
utilities business in France has 
been awarded to private com- 
panies to operate. Gfenfcrale des 
Eaux has around half of the 
business and Lyonnaise des 
Eaux has an estimated 30 per- 
cent The remainder is split be- 
tween units of Bouygues SA 
and Compagoie de Saint-Go-, 
bain SA. 

According to a report by an - 
assistant prosecutor died by 
the French newspaper, the; 
probe of G6n6rale des Eaux is- 
focusing on contributions made 
to elections on die French is- 
land of Reunion between 1992 
and 1994, and on its business 
over the past decade with a con- 
sulting company called Gifco, 
which was hnked to the Com-

■ He cited the example of ABB Asea 
Brown Boveri Ltd. tbC Swedish-Swiss 
construction and electronics conglomer- 
ate that follows a strategy of decentral- 
ized excellence. Top-down U.S. multina- 
tionals are more likely to resist, so it may 
help to recall the trims erf Ford Motor. 
Co. and General Motors Corp., which 
were forced to draw on the design, mar- 
keting and finally manufacturing skills 
of their successful European managers. 

Two less publicized examples of resist- 
ing the not-invented-here syndrome 
come from the U.S. subsidiary of NEC 

Corp. and and the Canadian subsidiary 
of Monsanto Co. I 

NEC’s American subsidiary was or- 
dered to build and sell a widely ac- 
claimed new digital switchboard that 
had been designed for Japan’s telephone 
monopoly. Local management found the 
switchboard could not handle billing for 
competing long-distance companies or 
call-waiting, call-forwarding and simil ar 
American revenue-spinners. 

Patiently but agon izin gly, NEC's 
Ameri c an manager, Howard Gottlieb, 
convinced his Japanese bosses that their 
switchboard had to be redesigned, dis- 
patching his own software engineers to 
participate. His design team was expand- 
ed from 10 to 50 and eventually supported 
new products for Asia as wdl as America. 

Monsanto Canada was squeezed by 
consolidation because it traditionally 
had manufactured a range of chemical 
products only for the local market lan 
Lennox, the Canadian manager, aimed 
to make his subsidary the world produc- 
er for the company’s best-selling herbi- 
cide by investing $15 milUon to stream- 
fine manufacturing and funding $6 
million worth of research. 

Finally, if a subsidary manager is es- 
sentially a marketer, the next step would 
be to become the regional coordinator. 
This in itself should enhance the essen- 
tial strategy of decentralization and 
global integration that any multinational 
must pursue, said Mr. Gates, and “show 
headquarters that a tour abroad is not 
just an exercise in getting your ticket 
punched for the next step up."

Tun Guy’ Puts Eli Lilly on World Stage 

By M3t Freudenhdm 

New York Times Service 

The friends of Randall L. Tobias por- 
tray him as a “fun guy” whose small-town 
style and Indiana affability sometimes 
mask a steely, business-minded core. 

Both faces have been showing at Eli 
LUly & Co., the staid Indianapolis-based 
drug maker that Mr. Tobias took over last 
year as chairman and chief executive. 

In just 13 months at the helm, Mr. Tobi- 
as has transformed Lilly from a slow-mov- 
ing, somewhat insular giant into an aggres- 
sively entrepreneurial international player. 

On Monday, Lilly announced that it 
would spend $4 billion to buy the coun- 
try’s largest manager of drug benefit pro- 

Mr. Tobias said there would be more 
surprises. “I anticipate doing other 
things," he said in a telephone interview 

after the announcement- He said his fist 
included possible joint ventures, alliances 
and acquisitions as well as “additional 
investments in various markets around the 

He noted that he had increased Lilly's 
staff in China from a single representative 
to 100, and said he was “working on new 
relationships in both Europe and Japan.” 

Wall Street investors initially took a dim 
view of tbe deal, driving Lilly shares down 
$7375, or 13 percent, on Monday. .Tbe 
stock feO $1 .625 on Tuesday, to $48375, in 
active trading on the New York Stock 
Exchange. On Wednesday afternoon, how- 
ever, the stock was up to $48,750. 

Until members of the Lilly board re- 
cruited him in June 1993, Mr. Tobias, who 

is 52 years old, had spent his career with 


years ow, 
:T Corp., 

where one of his main 

achievements was breaking into world 

In buying PCS Health Systems lac. 
from McKesson Corp, Mr. Tobias is wa- 
gering that the acquisition will enable Lilly 
to pump up its drug sales fast enough-to 
overcome the debt the company will as- 

“This is a high-stakes poker game,” said 
Ben F. Love, a Houston banker, UJIy 
board member and a Tobias partisan. 
“The CEO can’t hold a pat hand.” 

Some analysts said the PCS acquisition 
would enhance Lilly’s attractiveness to 
overseas dragmakers seeking market share 
in the United States. Last year, Lipy

Probing TV Eye: Can Auto CEO Change the Oil? 

By Doron P. Levin 

New York Tima Service 

NEW YORK — Michael Moore, the 
counterculture fihn maker who skewered 
General Motors Corp. and its chairman, 
Roger B. Smith, in the nun-dandy humor- 
ous “Roger and Me," is at it again — and 
this time his camera lens has widened to 
include all of Corporate America. 

A few weeks ago, Mr. Moore, accompa- 
nied by a film crew, stood outside the 
International Business Machines Corp. 

buQding in Manhattan, his bullhorn aimed 
at the office of Louis V. Gerstnear Jr., the 
chief executive officer. 

“Mr. Gerstner boomed Mr. Moore. 
“Come down. This is The CEO Chal- 
lenge-’ Come down. We are unarmed. All 
we want is to find out if you can format a 
floppy diskette.” 

Mr. Gerstner can format a diskette, ac- 
cording to a spokesman, but he was not 
about to do it for Mr. Moore, who wanted 
tbe demonstration for his new television 
show on NBC 

Mir. Gerstnear was not alone. More than 
60 corporations have turned down Mr. 
Moore’s request to film their bosses dem- 
onstrating their knowledge of a product 
their company makes. 

Only the Ford Motor Co. chair man . 
Alex Trotman, agreed to go along, chang- 
ing the oQ on a Ford Explorer. 

“CEO Challenge** is but one way in 
which Mr. Moore will be applying to the 
world of business an irreverent variation

GENEVA — A Swiss official 
on Wednesday accused Germa- 
ny of using power politics and 
economic muscle in its bid to 
wrest the World Trade Organi- 
zation from Geneva to Bonn. 

Francois Nordzaana, a Swiss 
Foreign Ministry official, said 
there was a “certain lack of fair 
play” in the German campaign 

'Dade envoys will meet Fri- 
day to recommend which city 
should host the new organiza- 
tion, which succeeds the Gener- 
al Agreement ou Tariffs and 
Trade on Jan. 1. . 

Mr. Nordmann was especial- 
ly critical of Germany’s synop- 
sis of the two bids ana de- 
scribed as “wrong" German 
riaims that the Cost Of living in 
Geneva was 30 percent higher 
than in Bonn. 

Mr. Nordmann said that 
Boon’s tactics might jeopardize 
the independence of the new 
trade organization. (AJP, Reu-

DOLLAR: Traders Are Skeptical 

Cbatmued from P^e 9 
value against the mark and 7 
percent against the yen. So far 
this year, the currency has fall- 
en 12.4 percent against the yen 
and 11.6 percent against the 

Currency players were look- 
ing ahead to U.S. retail sales 
data, due out Thursday, for fur- 
ther direction, according to the 
traders. In addition, traders 
have not ruled out the possibili- 

Foralfln Exchange 

ty that the Fed could still raise 

“There’s justification on the 
part of the Fed for a rate hike 
because the real economy is still 
showing some strength and in- 
flationary threat,” said Stuart 
Thomson, analyst at Nikko Eu- 
rope. “However, what we've 
seen justifies a quarter point 
rise, not a full half point.” Such 
a rise would not be enough to 
reverse the dollar’s slide, ana- 
lysts said. 

“The market is only interest- 
ed in one thing — a substantial 
increase in U.S. rates," said Pe- 
ter Grossmans, senior trader at 
American Express Bank in 
Frankfurt “Even if they in- 
crease rates by half a point it 
won’t help the dollar for the 
time being." 

The target for the federal 
funds overnight interbank loan 
rate is now at 4.25 percent. 
Meanwhile, the Fed's discount 
rate, charged on its direct loans 
to banking institutions, is at 3.5 

There is little prospect of re- 
spite for the dollar from a cut in- 
the Goman discount rate. In. 
the past the Bundesbank has 
allowed the gap between its se- 
curities repurchase rate and the 
discount rate, which acts as the 
floor for German money mar- 
ket rates, to narrow to 25 basis 
points, or one quarter of a per-* i 
centage point. With the dis- ■ 
count rate now at 4 J percent; 
the gap stands at 41 basispoints * 

A smaller- than -expected de- 
cline in the Bundesbank's 14- 
day securities repurchase rate 
Wednesday signaled that the 
German central bank was not 
prepared to swerve from its pol- 
icy of letting rates drop gradu- 
ally. The Bundesbank trimmed 
its repurchase rate by 2 basis 
points, the smallest cut in 20 
weeks, to 4.91 percent 

The British pound dosed at 
51.564, down up from $1.5685. 
The dollar rose to 5,2785 
French francs from 52465, and 
strengthened to 1.2998 Swiss 
francs from 1.2900. (AFX.

EU Fines Cardboard Firms 

cartels and heavy Sues the commission is still 


BRUSSELS — The European Union’ on 
Wednesday imposed a record fine of 13115 
mifeon European Currency Units ($165 million) 
on cardboard manufacturers for bre aking anti- 
trust rules by fixing prices. 

The four heaviest fines were levied on Igge- 
sund Paperboard AB, the packaging unit of for- 
«try products company Mo Och Domso AB 
(22.7 million Ecus); Meyr-Mehfeof of Austria. 
(21 muhon Ecus); Fmnboard of Finland (20 
mUlion Ecus), and Cascades SA of France (J&2 
million Ecus). 

“The present case reveals once again a disturb* 
mg level of sophisticated cartel activity- in a 
major industrial sector,” said Kard Van Mien, 
the competition commissioner. 

M lt is amazing and very disturbing that after 
more than 10 years of active pursuit of secret 

ingcartds in major industries,” he 

He said the investigation revealed a price- 
fixing system that involved cartel meetings in 
luxuiy holds in Zurich, where a Swiss fiduciary, 
Fidcs, conducted an information exchange. 

* Mr. Van MIert refused to name the ringlead- 
ers, winch he said had been fined 9 percent of 
their sales while the other companies had been 
fined IS percent. Store AB and a small Norwe- 
gian fban called Rena received reduced fines for 
cooperating in the inquiry, he said. 

The commission said the 19 companies that it 
fined accounted for almost afi production of 
West European cardboard. The previous record 
for a fine was the 104 million Ecus that the 
commissi on charged 14 sued companies in Feb- 
ruary for fixing prices. _ 1 ,

EU Urges Stronger links to Asia 

Bbimabag Businas News 

BRUSSELS — The European Commission 
called Wednesday for a radical overhaul of eco- 
nomic and political relations with Asia to avoid . 
being sidelined by the fastest-growing economies 
m the world. 

The c omm ission said it was urging businesses 
and government in the European Union member 
countries to mobilize their forces to open mar- 
kets, increase investment opportunities for Euro- 
pean companies and involve Asia more closely in 
international economic institutions. 

“If European companies are unable to take a 

full share of Asian growth over the next decade, 
this will affect their profits and competitiveness 
worldwide,” the commission said. 

It added that if EU companies failed to take a 
fair slice of the Asian market, protectionist in- 
stincts would grow in Europe. 

It said the EU was the second-biggest market 
for exports from developing Asian countries af- 
ter the United States, absorbing 128 biSkm Eu- 
ropean Onrency Units ($160 billion), or 27 per- 
cent of their exports in 1993. Asian imports of 
EU roods jumped from 15 billion Ecus in 1980 to 
93 button Ecus in 1993, the commission said.

Alitalia Reaches a Deal 
To Cut Jobs and Costs 


ROME — AHtalia SpA, which has been losing nearly $1 million 
a day, negotiated a den! with unions on Wednesday to cut costs 
and 1,570 jobs. 

The agreement, which will need to be ratified by employees of 
the state-owned airline before the end of Jnly to take effect, came 
after talks that lasted all night and followed several days of 
disruption caused by strikes. 

The bargain lies at the heart of a three-year plan to save 771 
bflttoo lire ($480 million) in the next three years by malting the 
airiine more efficient 

None of the cuts wlQ be mandatory and workers are to be 
encouraged to leave using incentives such as early retirement 
packages, some of them gpvennnent-backed. 

The airline bad been looking to cut staffing costs by 20 percent 
over the next three years, implying a loss of 4,000 jobs from its 
20,000-fflember workforce. Union officials said further losses 
could riot be ruled oul 

The cuts are expected to affect ground staff only but cabin sxaff 
have accepted a pay freeze until 1996 and agreed to be flexible 
about the flights they work on. 

Alitalia expects a loss this year, but its two senior directors hope 
the results wul be less disastrous than last year. In 1993, Alitalia's 
net losses rose 20-fold, to 336.9 billion lire, amid a global recession 
in the airiine industry and Italy’s worst economic crisis since 
World War TL

Michael Moore’s perspective 
is decidedly working class, and 
the man makes no pretense at 
fairness or balance. Someone 
like that makes network execu- 
tives and lawyers nervous. 

Which is why Mr. Moore, 40, 
was taken aback when NBC, a 
subsidiary of General Electric 
Co., offered to broadcast seven 
episodes of his new show. 

“At first I thought one of 
those earthquakes shook some- 
thing loose in Burbank,” said 
Mr. Moore, whose first show 
witt be broadcast Tuesday. He 
was referzring to the Los Ange- 
les suburb and 

hub. “2 asked them if they

Moore or Dudley Moore.” 

An NBC spokesman, Ed 
Harrison, said the show was a 

response to criticism that televi- 
sion lacked originality. 

Most episodes of TV Na- 
tion” will consist of five short 

humorous films, often involv- 
ing business or the economy. In 
one segment, Mr. Moore “fires”

show Jut Mexico to dramatize 
the impact of the North Ameri-

Points from 
the annual statement 
by the Chairman, 
Julian Ogilvie Thompson, 
on 30 June 1994. 

1994, a momentous and rewarding year for 
all South Africans, has seen the culmination of 
a process of profound change that we had long 
advocated. The country has been fortunate in the 
outstanding statesmanship of President Mandela 
and Deputy President De Klerk , in the goodwill 
of all who suffered under apartheid and in the 
manifest desire for peace and reconciliation that 
President Mandela has made a central tenet of 
bis administration. Now all components of the 
new South Africa must rise to the tremendous 
challenges that lie ahead, .is a member of the 
business community 1 am acutely aware of the 
part we have to play. The mining finance house 
continues to demonstrate its vigour and adapt- 
ability, harnessing under one roof the range of 
administrative, financial and technical skills and 
capital-raising capacity required for the major 
projects necessary to South Africa's development. 

■ Our faith m the future of South Africa is 
signalled by the current R1 5 billion investment 
programme of the Group and its associates. The 
major projects - almost entirely export- driven - 
each exceed R1 billion: the Namakwa minerals 
benefidation project, the Moab extension to the 
Vital Reefs gold mine and the new No 4 Shaft at 
Freddie's gold mine ; the Columbus joint venture , 
which will make South Africa a leader in world 
markets for stainless steel; and our investment 
in the Del Monte Royal Group , which draws 
substantially on South African products for the 
international branded foods business. 

■ South Africa's re-acceptance into the world 
community has opened up new horizons for 
the Group , enabling us to expand into areas 
previously closed to us. In West Africa we are a 
partner in the development of a most promising 
gold deposit in Mali and are conducting explo- 
ration in neighbouring states, hi Central and Bast 
Africa , and in Madagascar. In Zambia we. have 
proposed contingent on a feasibility study, a 
joint venture with ZCCM to develop the Konkola 
deep copper orebody. We are taking an interest 
in industrial ventures in the Far East and 

undertaking joint exploration in Vietnam and 
other countries in the region. We retain our 
close financial and technical involve?ncnt in 
Minorca's six exciting new mining ventures in 
South America , which could double the size of 
Amsa and re-establish the wider group as a major 
world copper producer. 

■ The ability to operate internationally as a 
dezvloper of major projects with or without over- 
seas partners , is a function of size. Our Zebra 
high -energy battery project could not have been 
undertaken without substantial research and 
development expenditure, spread over many 
years , and the support and participation of 
overseas partners - in this case Daimler 
Benz /AEG. Our extensive resource base was a 
factor in bringing Daewoo of South Korea , one 
of the leading industrial groups in Asia , into 
partnership with us to seek new development 
opparttmitics in South Africa. 

■ The Corporation's excellent results testify to 
our financial strength and the benefits of planned 
geographic and product diversity. Net earnings 
increased by 23 per cent to R2,9S4 million and 
attributable earnings by 20 per cent to R1.6S1 
million , with the total dividend increasing by 14 
per cent to R3. 95 per share. 

■ As our central business purpose is wealth 
creation — not only for shareholders - the Cor- 
poration is investing in significant p/vgrammes in 
the fields of small business promotion, economic 
empowerment, share ownership , employment 
equity and education. In the words of our founder. 
Sir Ernest Oppenbeimer, 40 years ago: “ Our aims 
have been, and they still remain , to earn profits , but 
to earn them in such a way as to make a real and 
permanent contribution to the well being of the 
people and the development of Southern Africa "

TOKYO -- A U. S. trade of- 
ficial on Wednesday cast doubt 
on the outlook for trade talks 
between the United States and

crisis unless progress was made. 

*T hope we can narrow the 
differences in the next couple of 
weeks, but at this stage it is 
really an open question whether 
we mil reach agreements,” Jef- 
frey E. Garten, the U.S. under-

month deadlock; But he said 
significant obstacles remained 
to agreements in the three pri- 
ority sectors of insurance, auto- 
mobiles and autoparts, and 
government procurement. 

“Industrial countries are re- 
eralization could be a catalyst ■ loctant to offer continued ac- 
for world growth. 

At the beginning of 


there were signs of political and 
trade conflicts between the 
United States on the one hand 
and Japan and China on die 
other," said the bank. 

It said the industrial wodd 
should encourage economic re- 
form rather than resort to 
“threats of inward-locking re-. 
ginnalijEm, aggresave trade re- 
taliation and ind ir ect protec- 
tion.” ^ 

Such warnings aside, the bank

Wu’s China Highway Is Still Stalled 

Cwyiferf ty Ow Staff From Dupdcha 

HONG KONG — Gordon Wu’s super- 
highway in southern China is essentially fin- 
ished, tat tbe project is still stalled in the slow 

- Mr. Wu, who had once forecast that the road 
from Guangzhou to the Hoag Kong border 
would be open in the middle of last year, now 
concedes mat die highway win. not be fully 
operational until at least Monday. 

The 58-year-old Princeton University grad- 
uate and managing director of Hopewell 
Holding* Ltd, already is obliged to jump into 
Hong ltong's filthy harbor as his self-chosen 
penance for missing one of the many lapsed 
deadlines, June 30 this year. 

The latest delay, Mr. Wu said, is the fault of 
the People’s Liberation Army. It will 

not be able to provide sufficient guards from 
among its 3 tmiiion soldiers for the bonier 
between the Shenzhen economic zone and the 
rest of China until at least Monday, he said. 

’Things arenot as easy as they used to be,” 
Mr. Wu complained- Doing bnsness in China 
was fraught with “more and more agencies.” 

The 51-5 billion, six-lane road, which 
Hopewell is to txansfer to provincial control 
after 30 years, will cut travel time from Hong 
Kong to Guangzhou to about two-and-a-half 
hours from the current seven. 

Despite the delayed opening, Mr. Wo de- 
cided to go ahead with a private tour of the 
road this week for several busloads of finan- 
cial backers, analysts and journalists. 

The 122-kSameter (76-mile) road, todk un- 
der 90 minutes to travel on Tuesday, although 
only a portion of it was open to general 
traffic. There was little traffic on one section, 
but the part near to Guangzhou had a steady 
stream of cars and trucks. 

The commercial potential for the road was 
visible to the west and below. Sailing along the 
highway, driven can look over at China's Na- 
tional Route 107, the old road whose two lanes 
are jammed with cars and trucks as they crawl 
through one small town after another. 

About 40 kilometers of the route is on 

viaducts through a region crisscrossed by trib- 
utaries of the Pearl Stiver. But Mr. Wu admit- 

ted that only two or three of the 15 inter- 
changes were ready and the rest would not 
Open until later this year. 

With economic growth running at over 20 
percent for a decade, the Pearl River Delta is 
not a pretty place. Shabby factories making 
toys, electronics products and sports shoes 
with cheap labor have sprang up in an area 
that was dotted by duck ponds and paddy 
fields a few years agp. 

Mr. Wu said the road could have opened 
nine months earlier but for delays caused by 
the Chinese side, and he is renegotiating a 
contract under which Hopewell would have 
kept for itself all tolls paid before June 30 this 
year if the road had been open. 

After the June 30 cutoff, Hopewell is to get 
only 40 percent of the tolls and 40 percent to 
80 percent of profits from real estate develop- 
ment along the route. 

Hopewell hopes to take in 2 bflHon Hong 
Kong dollars ($258.9 million) in toils in the 
first year, based on a projected 11,000 to 
20,000 vehicles a day. 

Toll rates for the highway still have to be 
approved by the Guangdong government, but 
they are Hkdy to nm in tbe area of 80 Hong 
Kong cents a kilometer for cars. Chinese 
nationals will pay in China's yuan currency, 
and their rate works oat to slightly less. 

The real money cranes from trucking. From 
tbe look of traffic on Route 207, at least half 
the traffic an the highway will be commercial 
trucks, whose tolls will run to up to six times 
the private car rate. 

In the end, it may not even be tbe highway 
that enlarges Mr. Wu’s fortune. He also gets 
40 percent to 80 percent of the revenue from 
gas stations, office space, and the rest of the 
40 million square feet (3.6 million square 
meters) of commercial space around 10 of the 
highway's 25 interchanges, only a few of 
wmch will be finish ed m time for the full 
public opening ( Bloomberg, Reuters)

JAKARTA — Owners of In- 
donesia’s oldest magazine. 
Tempo, banned with two others 
last month for its political cov-

sell the publication to a busi-

sporadic but sometimes violent 
protests against a government 
decision to dose Tempo, Dctik

ered among the vanguard of a 
revitalized media focusing on 
sensitive political issues. 

Media sources said behind-

Siemens Wins Thai Work 


BANGKOK — A consortium led by Siemens AG of Germany

The transit system, an arm 
received approval from Thailand’s cabinet on Tuesday to start 
construction on tbe 14.4-mile (23-kilometer) light-railway system, 
which is targeted for completion in 1997. 

Edward Chow, Bangkok Transit System's chief financial offi- 
cer, said the project, to cost 35 bilhon to 37 billion baht, would be 
financed by a combination of debt and equity, of which 25 billion 
baht would be provided by the contractors. 

Bangkok Transit S plans to sign the contract with the Siemen- 
s'' Italian Thai Development consortium on Friday, Kasame Cha- 
tikavanij, tbe company’s chairman, said. 

“There is no basis for concern. 
We are working out a technical 

rotation to min mure the effect if 
interference should occur.” 

International Telecommuni- 
cation Union officials, who 
have few {rowers to enforce 
their regulations, privately said 
they believed a compromise 
would be reached and that the 
threat that China might one day 
have one of its own claims su- 
perseded by someone else 
should bring it into conformity. 

However, despite confidence 
that Apstar I will deliver great-

McGriff Homers in 9th, Alou Doubles in 10th and NL Defeats At, 8-7 

By Murray Chass 

v w York Tima Senice 

stant Fred McGriffs fly -hall 
sailed over the fence in Tefi- 
center field, the American 
League should have known that 
its longest winning streak in 
MrStar Game history was in 
serious jeopardy. 

The pinch-hitter’s two- run 
hopje ran off Lee Smith only 
. lied the score, at 7-7, but at the 
! least it would send the game 
into extra innings, where the 
National League has never lost. 

Sure enough, that territory 
remained the sole possession of 
the Nationals on Tuesday night 
because Tony Gwynn's single 
and a double by Moises Alou in 
the 10th gave them an 8-7 vic- 
tory, the league’s ninth in nine 
extra- inning All-Star Games. 

The last game the Rational 
League won, in 1987,'Sn‘ Tact, 
went 13 innings, and the Ameri- 
can League had won all six 
games since. 

“We’ve been talking about it 
all day, Ozzie and I,” an ecstatic 
Gwynn said, referring to anoth- 
er veteran, Ozzie Smith. “We’re 
about the only ones who re- 
&anber when we were win- 

Another Smith, Lee, was the 
pitcher who threw the pitch that 
McGriff hit for the game-tying 
home run. The pitching Smith 
was the winning pitcher for the 
National League in that 1987 
Alt-Star Game. He wasn't the 
losing pitcher in this game: Ja- 
son Bere of the Chicago White 
Sox was. But it was McGrifrs 
shot that made the National 
League victory possible. 

McGriff said that when he 
saw Gwynn slide across the 
i plate an inning later, he 
' thought: *Tm glad it’s over. I’m 
the hero"

Fred McGriff homered to tie to score in the ninth — 

The Atlanta first baseman, 
named the game's most valu- 
able player, fouled up the 
Americans’ plan to win the 
game. 7-5, on a three- run rally 
their second string generated in 
the seventh inning against John 

Hudek of Houston and Danny 
Jackson of Philadelphia. 

Scott Cooper of Boston dou- 
bled home the tying run against 
Jackson, and Kenny Lofton of 
Cleveland grounded a single 

through a drawn-in infield for 
two more runs. 

But the Three Rivers Stadi- 
um crowd of 59,568, largest 
ever to see a baseball game in 
Pittsburgh, did not give up. 

When Marquis Grissom of 
Montreal, whose sixth- inning, 
bases-empty home run had put 
the National League ahead, 5-4, 
led off the ninth with a walk, 
the fans cheered. When Craig 
Biggio of Houston forced Gris- 
som at second, they groaned, 
but they cheered when Biggio 
beat the throw to first 

“The big play in the math 
was Biggio beating out that 
double-play ball,” McGriff 
said. “If he doesn't 1 don’t get a 
chance to hit a two-run home 

McGriff, whose 23 home 
runs have put him in position to 
hit 30 or more for the seventh 
successive season, almost didn’t 
get into the game. 

“I was waiting for a spot" 
said Jim Fregosi, the Philadel- 
phia manager. “I only had a 
couple of left-handers. We were 
out of things to do." 

“I was over there sweating,” 
McGriff said. “We’re losing. He 
has to save me just in case. I 
said it’s getting late; it’s the 
ninth inning now. Something's 
got to happen." 

Fregosi sent McGriff to bat 
for Randy Myers. Smith got the 
count to a ball and two strikes 
before McGriff connected. 

“It was a fastball away ” the 
left-handed slugger said. “He 
blew the second pitch by me. I 
was thinking, let it go, be ag- 
gressive, take your whacks. If 
you don’t get him, get ready for 
Thursday and play the Mar- 

Having insured at least one 
more inning before he could 
think of the resumption of the tiiu. Realm 

Tony Gwynn beat the throw home in the 10th as Jim Leytand, coaching at third, provided a iitffe saracy footwork. 

regular season, McGriff 
watched Gwynn and Alou do 
their part in the 10th. 

Gwynn, playing the entire 
game after substitutingin cen- 
ter field for 'Lenny Dykstra, 
who had undergone an appen- 
dectomy, had doubled home 

tWO runs iri-the third inning and 
scored on Mike Piazza’s single 
for a 4-1 lead. Now he led off 
the 10th against Bere, and he 
rapped a single to center field. 

Alou, who had replaced Bar- 
ry Bonds in the ninth, was the 
next batter, and he drove a 
pitch from Bere to the wall in 

left-center. Gwynn raced 
around the bases, and Tun Ley- 
land, the Pirates' manager serv- 
ing as the third-base coach, 
waved him home. 

Albert Belle of Cleveland re- 
trieved the ball in left-center 
and threw to Cal Ripken Jr. of 
Baltimore, the shortstop and re- 
lay man, in short left Ripken 
wheeled and fired home to Ro- 
driguez. but Gwynn's slide got 
his foot to die plate just ahead 
of the catcher’s tag. 

“When he got to home plate 
and I saw the umpire call him 
safe,” Alou said, “Wow!” The 

sot of Felipe Alou, who played 
in two All-Star games, Moises 
smiled broadly. 

“It was great to see Alou gc. 
in the game," Fregosi said, “fm 
very dear friends with his la- 
ther, and my son played with 
him in the minors. It was a great 
thing for him to get the hit. I'm 
glad I got a chance to use him." 

Gwynn was the only player 
Fregosi used the entire game. 

“I’m tired, but I probably 
won’t be able to sleep tonight," 
said the veteran, who had bat- 
ted- only .235 and driven in no 
runs in nine previous All -Star 

games. “Hi sleep tomorrow be-

runs in the game. The more po- 
tent American League hitters 
hit none. 

“Considering they- have Grif-

home runs, ‘in awesome num- 
ber at the .All-Star break,’’ 
McGriff raid, "we car hold our

H'ushin^nm Part Service 

P ITTSBURGH — Ken Griffey Jr. Frank 
Thomas and Matt Williams got the best 
imaginable news this week. It’s likely that major 
league baseball's regular season — and their 
chances to break Roger Mans’s record of 61 
home runs — will be saved. 

At their union meeting, the players showed an 
increased inclination to announce a Sept 30 
strike date, rather than the Aug. 16 date previ- 
ously preferred. — •— - 

Plavers assume a Vantage 
strike probably nt%*n* 

can't be prevented roint 

and die postseason 

is likely a lost cause. So. as a financial gift to 
themselves and a public-relations gesture of 
good will toward fans, the players now seem 
inclined to salvage the regular season. It labor 
Armageddon is coming anyway, why not play 
until the last paycheck and incentive clause has 
been earned? Besides, maybe somebody will hit 
62 home runs. Why ruin that too? 

in the wake of these labor developments, the 
All-Stars here have changed their tune about 
whether Griffey, Thomas or Williams can pass 
Maris. For weeks we’ve heard. ‘They’ll never get 
the chance.” Now you hear, “Yes, they can." 

This a L -star week has enhanced the already 
enormous reputations of Griffey and Thomas. In 
Monday's home run hitting contest, both, 
launched balls of more than 510 feet. In the All- 

Star game itself, Griffey doubled off the left field, 
wall in tiie first inning; Thomas followed with an 
RBI single to center. In the fifth, Griffey singled 
borne a run; Thomas singled on the next pitch- 
and eventually scored. Combined, they went 4- 
for-5, plus a walk. 

The Colorado Rockies’ manager, Don Baylor, 
stood by the batting cage before the game and 
listed the records, once assumed unassailable, 
that he’d seen broken during his time: Babe 
Ruth’s 7 14 homers, Ty Cobb's 4, 191 hits, Walter 
Johnson’s career strikeouts — which Nolan. 
Ryan surpassed by thousands. 

“Now, Cal Ripken’s probably going to play in 
2,131 consecutive games," said Baylor. “What’s 
left except Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game" hitting streak 
and 61 home runs? Maybe 56 straight games really 
is the only one that won’t be broken." 

Everybody has his favorite candidate. But al- 
most nobody doubts that the homer record is 
reachable tins season. 

“Oh, yes, somebody can definitely break it," 
said Mike Mussina, the pitcher for the Baltimore 
Orioles. “I think Frank (Thomas) has the best 
chance because he doesn't swing at bad pitches 
and get himself out or put himself into slumps. 
Also, the (new) parks are smaller and balls are 
flying out everywhere. Hitting is contagious. . 

“Of course, there’s also the hush-hush T 
word,” he said. That, of course, would be the 
word “juiced.” Whether the ball actually is liveli- 
er, hitters suspect it is, which boosts their 

“Don't forget, the home run time of the year is 
just beginning," said the San Francisco Giants 1 
manager. Dusty Baker. “We’re getting those 95 
degree days when the ball flies out . . . The 
pitchers are at that 150- to 200-inning dead- anu 
period when the curves start rolling instead of 
snapping. Kids get brought up from the minors. 
The buQpeas are worn out . . .**. 

Fair or not, few outride San Francisco think 
Williams can stay in. the race-. Of coarse, the 
public’s, choice for 6 1 in '61 was Mickey Mamie. 

This week has beat cruel to the third baseman. 
He skipped the homer contest, went 0-for-3 with 
two strikeouts in the game and made a wild 
throw on a simple force play that led to lwo runs. 

The debate here has centered primarily around 
the camps of Thomas and Griffey. Griffey has a 
model uppercut left-handed home run swing. At 
impact, he lodes much like a bigger Maris. When 
he’s hot, he can do impossible things to unhitLa- 
ble balls. He's homered this year on pitches that 
were ankle-high and above his shoulders. But 
such, raw instinctual barrages also get him out of 
sync, and he's slump prone. 

The right-handed Thomas is a pure, alj-fields 
line-drive hitter who happens to weigh 259 
pounds. As a result, his line drives go enormous 
distances. But he may take too many walks and 
hit too many balls through walls to reach 62 
homers. And when he talks, Thomas sounds like 
a man who thinks about the Triple Crown more 
than home run records. Like Ted Williams, be is 

such a perfection;:--: he ha-- m pa tided his 
strike zone for anybudv or an> thing. 

“If Fran); i horns hUs.?'»‘ v.irh 150 RBI and 
50 homers, then give him -vr- due. 'hose are Lou 
Gehrig numbers, if he dr** ji dree ur four more 
times, then he is us good us Gehrig," said Reggie 

Ah, yes, Reggie the resident expert here on 
The Chase. Where Griffey, WtlMnms and Thom- 
as now stand, with 33. S3 ana 32 homers after 
their 87th, S9:b and faith garter-. Jaekson once 
stood, too. He was far Ahead Of .Tint with

“i was a ’iale w u-ig." lacksun said after 
bombing one .»vcr the u jillor he fans in his old- 
timers game uniform. '-Jbe pressure got to me." 

Jackson prefers Griffey’s chances for 62 be- 
cause “Griffey V -he -no=i s-. ?in!K adjusted." 
And while nobody can be .• rr 'etely at ease in 
the modern celebrity maei-ir Coffey does 
well considering — can this rvo.lbly he* correct? 
— he's 24. 

“They’re aJr*:-ad’- getting ixsie of the pres-

Indurain ‘Loses,’ and Nearly Doubles Lead 

By Samuel Abt 

International Herald Tribune 

France — Halfway up the first 
bi^ climb in the Tour tie France. 
Miguel Indurain looked back 
once over his left shoulder and 
then once over his right When 
he saw that his major rival. 
Tony Rominger, had been left 
behind Wednesday, Indurain 
knew just what he had to do: 

Twenty minutes later, the 
Spaniard rode out of a thick 
screen of fog and cold mist and 
crossed the finish line after an- 
other terrible show of force. For 
the second time this week, fol- 
lowing his victory in the indi- 
vidual time trial on Monday, he 
had humbled this bicycle race. 

Indurain badly wanted to 
win this 1 1th stage, the first of 
two in the Pyrenees, but did 

He was left two seconds be- 
hind in the final few hundred 
meters by Luc Leblanc, a 
Frenchman, and had to settle 
for second place among the 175 

riders who started the 263.5- 
kilometer ( 164-mile) stage from 
Cahors to Lourdes Hautacam. a 
mountainlop ski resort. 

He did, however, succeed in 
nearly doubling his lead, to a 
huge 4 minutes. 47 seconds, 
over Rominger in second place. 

Arm and De Las Cuevas, a 
Frenchman with Castorama, is 
third, 5:36 behind: Piotr Ugru- 
raov, a Lithuanian with Gewiss, 
is fourth, 8:32 behind, and Leb- 
lanc, who rides for Festina, is 
fifth. 8:35 behind. 

Although the finish in Paris is 
still 1 1 days away and many big 
mountains remain, there cannot 
be a rider left who believes that, 
barring accident or sickness, In- 
durain can be denied his fourth 
consecutive victory in the Tour. 

Leblanc was timed in 6 
hours, 58 minutes, 4 seconds, a 
fast pace of 37.8 kilometers an 
hour (23.5 mph) considering the 
length of the stage and the 
steepness of the climb, which 
was rated beyond category on 
the standard scale of one, hard- 
est. to four, easiest. 

The speed would probably 

have been lower in hotter 
weather but the riders had a 
comfortable day in the 70s un- 
der overcast and sometimes 
drizzly skies. 

Following the second-placed 
Indurain was Marco Pan rani, 
an Italian with Carrera, 18 sec- 
onds behind the winner. Rich- 
ard Virenque, a Frenchman 
with Fes tin a, was fourth. 56 sec- 
onds behind, and De Las Cue- 
vas was fifth. 58 seconds be- 

Among the day's more note- 
worthy casualties were Chris 
Boaraman. the Englishman 
who rides for Gan and who 
wore the yellow jersey after he 
won the prologue, ana Claudio 
Chiappucci. another Italian 
with Carrera, who had set his 
heart on winning here. The ex- 
hausted Boardman bad to quit 
his first Tour de France and the 
sick Chiappucci finished 168 th. 
nearly 24 minutes behind. 

Now in 135th place overall, 
Chiappucci, who has completed 
the Tour in as high ds second 
and third place in the last four 

yean, will get a chance to recov- 
er Thursday, the race’s single 
day off in three weeks of com- 

On Friday, the battle will be 
renewed with a long stage over 
four major climbs in the Pyre- 
nees. Indurain knows those 
climbs well and always races 
strongly over them. 

The Spaniard, who rides for 
the Banes to team, started the 
day 2:28 up over. Rominger, 
who rides for Mapd-Clas and 
finished second last year. The 
Swiss labored on the second 
half of the 13.6-kilometer climb 
and wisely decided to mount at 
his own pace rather than blow 
up while trying to chase the 
back of the man wearing the 
yellow jersey with No. 1 pinned 
EO it. 

Grimacing with his effort al- 
though he rarely rose from his 
saddle as the others did, Indur- 
ain attacked on grades that 
ranged up to 10 percent and 
averaged just under 8 percent. 
Once he jumped, the nearly 
dozen riders around him began 
f alling b ehin d. 

Pantani had the lead at that 
point after he and the other 
leaden overhauled a five-man 
breakaway that romped 
through a good part of the stage 
before the climb. With three ki- 
lometers left and a thick bank 
of fog ova the road, Leblanc 
and Indurain were the Italian's 
two closest pursuers. 

As they caught him, one on 
either side, Leblanc bolted 
away. The Spaniard fought 
back, regained his lost 200 me- 
ters and then tried to get away 

A rider who has often al- 
lowed an opponent to win a 
stage while be himself widened 
his overall lead, Indurain this 
time went for the victory. His 
focus said so, his determination 
said so, his speed said so. 

Leblanc said no. 

Each rinv Indurain passed 
him, the Frenchman drew even. 
On the last curve before the 
straightaway to the line, be 
whipped ahead into the con- 
cealing fog and was gone. In- 
durain had run out of space.

Ailsa Craig Ready 
For Golf’s Finest 

By Leonard Shapiro 

Washington Pan Service 

TURNBERRY, Scotland — 
It sits out there in the distance, 
off the Firth of Clyde coast, this 
massive Ailsa Craig, “ihou crag- 

§ y ocean pyramid" as a sonnet 
y John Keats once described 
the forboding hunk of granite. 

It rises out of the sea and is 
home to 20,000 gannets, huge 
birds with the look of a seagull 
on steroids and a piercing 
screech they say can be heard 
all the way to Northern Ireland, 
on the other side of the water. 

It is one of countless spectac- 
ular sights and stirring sounds 
that make the Ailsa course at 
Tnmbeny such a splendid ven- 
ue for the 123d British Open 
that gets underway Thursday 
morning. As they say in these 
pretty parts, “If you can see 
Ailsa Craig, it is about to rain. 
If you can’t, it is raining." 

As stunning a view as the 
rock provides on a clear day, 
most of the 156 players in the 
best field in golf would proba- 
bly prefer not to see Ailsa Craig 
in an its glory this week. They’d 
like it belter silhouetted in the 
mist, with a fresh breeze not 
quite blowing up a storm. 

Td like to see it blow. I'd 
love to see it bowl.’’ said Phil 
Mickelson, the 24-year-old 
American who’s long-hitting 
game with a sweet touch around 
the greens seems ideally suited 
for Turabeny. “To me, that’s 
what the British Open repre- 
sents. If it really blows, it defi- 
nitely limits the number of peo- 
ple with a shot to win.” 

On Wednesday, the sun was 
-riining . the water was dead 
calm and the wind was merely a 
whisper. The forecast called for 

rain Thursday and wind kicking 
up by the weekend. But the lo- 
cals will tell you any conditions 
are possible day-to-day on the 
tempestuous Scottish coast, and 
weather forecasts are mostly 
imma terial. 

If it does stay like this for the 
championship over the rain- 
softened 6,957-yard, par 70 
course, everyone predicts the 
sort of lights-out scoring more 
suitable for a Quad Cities than 
a British Open. And what a 
shame that would be, almost all 
the players are saying, even as 
bushels of birdies are bong 
duly recorded on their cards in 
the warm-up rounds. 

Jade Nicklaus and Tom Wat- 
son played as partners Wednes- 
day in the final practice round 
against Nick Price and Greg 
Norman, the defending cham- 
pion, and had a best ball of 10- 
under 60, both shooting rounds 
Watson said were in the “raid- 
60s." They won all the bets, and 
afterward. Price said he’d never 
seen Watson, a five-lime British 
Open champion, putt so wdL 

“I was making everything." 
Watson agreed, saying he'd got- 
ten “a little tip" from Lee Tre- 
vino last week playing in Ire- 
land. He wouldn’t say exactly 
what Trevino told him but ad- 
mitted, “I can't say I haven't 
thought about winning this 

“The golf course is playing 
relatively easy,” Watson said. 
“With the conditions the way 
they were today, you’ll see a lot 
of low scores. I'd like to see 
firmer conditions. That’s what a 
links course is. But Mother Na- 
ture dictates bow you play, in 
’86 here, it was wet and it was 

Gillooly Given 2-Year Prison Term 

PORTLAND, Oregon (AP) — Despite the prosecutor's recom- 
mendation for a more lenient penalty. Tonya Harding's ex- 
husband, Jeff Gillooly. was sentenced Wednesday to two years in 
prison for his role in the attack on figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. 

District Attorney Michael Schrunk asked Donald Londer. the 
presiding circuit judge for Multnomah County, to sentence Gil- 
looly to a year in prison because of his extraordinary cooperation, 
with investigators. But Londer. while citing the seriousness of the 
offense, also said Gillooly was the “primary moving force which 
led to the assault."

Negotiating Is the A

By Richard Justice 

Washnpom Poet Sance 

NEW YORK — The federal 
judge asked to rale on the Na- 
tional Basketball Association’s 
labor dispute ended an often - 
combative day-long hearing by 
warning players and owners 
that they had better settle their 
differences by negotiating with 
one another. 

"Tins whole thing should 
have been decided in collective 
bargaining," Kevin Dirffy, a 
U.S. district court judge, said 

Duffy extended a temporary 
restraining order preventing the 
league from negotiating any 
contracts and said he was pre-

Said Nicklaus. “If the British 
Open was played inland and 
not on this kind of course, I 
don’t think people would come 
over here. Harder and faster, 
that’s what makes it fun to play 

One day in 1973. during the 
John Player Clastic, the wind 
blew so hard — 120 miles an 
hour at its worst — that every 
tent on the grounds was pulled 
out ax the stakes. In the first 
round of the ’86 Open. 45-mile- 
an-hour gales strode and 40 
players failed to break 80. with 
a stroke average of 78.9 for the 
field. The rough was brutal and 
the landing areas so narrow 
only 10 players managed to hit 
the fairway off the ninth tee at 
Ailsa’s signature lighthouse 
hole that day. Nicklaus asked, 
“What fairway?” 

Norman needed 74 blows 
that afternoon and said “some 
of the players are bang humili- 
ated. ft was the land of day 
when you walk off with a head- 
ache from concentration and 
fighting the wind." 

The next day, he shot 63. a 
record- tying round with eight 
birdies, an eagle and three bo- 
gies. induding one at the 434- 
yard last hole when he three- 
putted from 28 feet. At the 
time, Watson described it as 
“the greatest round ever played 
in a tournament I was a com- 
petitor in." 

Norman went on to win his 
first major championship, nine 
years after Watson had played 
four magnificent rounds 
to beat Nicklaus by a stroke at 
the first British Open ever 
played on the Ailsa course, in 
“77. Some say that 106th Open 
may have been the best of au. 

For the first three days, Nick- 
laus and Watson had identical 
scores of 68, 70, and 65 as die 
distanced themselves from the 
field. The two best players in the 
world were paired in the final 36 
holes in virtual match play com- 
petition. At one point in the last 
round, Watson, then 27, turned 
to Nicklaus, 37, and said, “This 
is what it’s all about, isn’t it 

Then, at the 498-yard 17th, a 
relatively easy par-5, Watson 
hit a 3-iron second shot to with- 
in 10 feet for a possible eagle. 
Nicklaus came up short of the 
green, dipped to four feet and 
missed the birdie puiL Watson 
had a tap-in birdie and, for the 
first time all week, the lead. 

At the 18th, Watson’s 1-iron 
was straight and true, safe in the 
middle of the fairway. Nicklaus 
reached for his driver, and 
pushed his ball far to the right, in 
deep grass a few inches from a 
gone bush. Watson came over to 
have a look at Nicldaus’s dilem- 
ma, then walked back to his own 
ball and hit a 7-iron to two feet. 

Still, Nicklaus was not done. 
He hit down on the ball with an 

8-iron and somehow got the 
ball on the putting surface; 30 
feet from the flag. Of course, his 
birdie putt was dead in (he hole. 
But Watson quickly walked up 
to his ball and made the putt for 
65 and the second of his five 
British Open titles. Thor clos- 
est pursuer was that year’s U-S. 
Open champion. Hubert Green, 
1 1 shots behind the winner. 

“I won the Open," Green 
said that day. “Those two were 
playing some other game.” 

Who’s game can prevail here 
this week wiO be determined in 
large part by the wind and 
weather. Norman, as usual, is 
the betting favorite, with all the 
usual big names — Watson, 
Price, Nick Faldo, Bernhard 
Laager, lost Maria Olazabal 
and Tom Kite — considered the 
major contenders. 

Ernie Els, the 24-year-old 
U.S. Open champion from 
South Africa, also could be a 
factor, even if he did miss the 
cut at the Scottish Open last 
week. He’s had sixth- and fifth- 
place finishes the last two years 
and is trying to become the first 
player since Watson in *82 to 
win the U.S. Open and British 
Open in the same year. 

“Other guys have won two 
majors in a year,” he said, “so 
why not me? That would be 
quite something.”

F/tiematbrnal Herald Tribune 

L OS ANGELES — Humor and life’s iro- 
nies arc probably last on Mam© Tassotti right 
now. But as the Itahan defender shs out the last days 
of the World Cup, banned for eight matches for 
dbowing Spam’s Luis Enrique in the face, it might 
occur to him that he lists Ernest Hemingway's “A 
Farewell to Anns’” as his preferred reading matter; 

One never knows about players and their declared 
likes and dislikes. ' 

ip, Now It Must Assess What It Hus Wrought 



’s idols 

TassottTs claim to lit- 
erary taste appeared 
in brief biographical 
notes from the Italian 
federation’s press office, notes in which 1 
worn obviously encouraged to say 
prase of U.S. cuh figures. 

However, Tassotti may dpi have time for .reading 
anything but die revised FIFA rule book. He pra- 
■ tests dnx he has been victimized, a 
of soccer’s draconian crackdown at this tournament . 

Certainly Tassotti has been harShly punished. IBs 
eight match suspension, and fine of 20.000 Swiss 
francs ($15,000), effectively ends the international 
career of a defender of 34 years of age. 

His case is unprecedented. FIFA, with keen; tech- 
nological sight, used video tape to judge the AC. 
Milan right back guilty of an offense mused by the 
match referee, the finesmea, the reserve referee. Tt 

was unique because ti ns ca se did not start with the 
referee's report,” said FIFA’s sp ok es m a n, Andreas 
Henna. “It was an np to the tape.” 

The tape convinced FIFA’s msdpfinaiy commit- 
tee dial Tassotti was guilty of ’intentional serious 
vtnlCTt conduct " IB the nwm* in Dallas, 

if not in 'the •rfteainconsisteit eye erf die Hungarian 
match ref tree Sandor Pohl, Tassotti had defiberatdy 
used Ins dhow to break the Enrique’s nose 
The Italians protested, of course. Said -Raffade 
Ranucri, chafonan of die Italian technical commit- 
tee, “Since not any <rf the four officials at thematrii 
saw anything, we took it for granted nothing would 
be done, Fak ioldus they derided to look at the 
video after a report based on. ft fifth official in the 
stadium to supervise the others” 

Wow! Kg brother, indeed. 

Blatter, FIFA’s zealous chief executive, who 
said tut video would be used to catch die villains, 
and absolve the innocent. 

Any student of World Cup football will know the 
reason for this. Remember 1982; remember the 
bodily assauft by which Gennany’s goalkeeper, Har- 
old Schumacher, took out France’s Patrik Baftiston. 
Remember that went im punishcd, that 

the blood poarisg from Baniston’s busted mouth, 
the pain of his wired and broken jaw, became a 
permanent stain on the worid game. 

Enough, said FIFA. Enough, said Blatter in par- 
ticular. We cannot promote the sport, cannot give 
creators the fre edo m to express while condoning 
common assault disguised as a legitimate tackle. 

Hie Brazilian defender Leonardo was suspended 
four gaps for dbowingTab Ramos of the United 
States in the temple. Tassottfs punishment was 
doubled because there was not, asm the Leonardo* 
Ramos case, a provocative foul by the injured player. 

“Mine was not a voluntary foul,” Tassotti insisted 
before the FIFA judgment. "We were pushing each 
other to control a high ball, we both elbowed. I did 
not realize J bad hit him on the nose. I tried to 
apologize to turn on the field, but he was furious." 

Furious is not the word. Lois Enrique was livid, 
his nose ran red with blood. The Spaniards railed at 
the izgustice because; if the foul was as intentional as 
FIFA now says, it should have been a penalty and 
Spain might not now be ool of the World Cup. 

There lies the crux of another matter. FIFA, by 
admitting video evidence to determine guilt on the 
field but clinging to the view that the referee’s 
decision is inviolate as far as the match result goes, 
has prepared the path to instant replay on the field. 

There is no alternative now. Those erf us who frit 
that referees were human, and to be Iranian is to err, 
have lost our case resisting technological interven- 
tion. But if the cameras are tp incriminate, they must 

also be used to serve justice. The implication of 
FIFA’s finding is that Italy cheated Spain out of the 
World Cup, but that nothing can right that wrong, 
only retribution can be wrought against the peipe- 

Yet new technology is neither foolproof on 
or simple. FIFA’s msriphnaiy minds apparently 
took an hour to review and review again the moving 
images of Tassotti versos Luis Enrique. Which was 
not surprising: The television pictures seen around 
the globe proved nothing. We saw the two men run 
together, small figures on a long shot on the left 
comer of oar screens. 

Obviously there was contact. Oyer four or five 
strides they ap pe a red to jostle. Enrique at the back 
of Tassotti, before the Spaniard suddenly jerked 
away and fell dramatically. Haring see a two boturs 
previously, Jurgen Klinsmann of Germany perform 
bis dying swan act to con yet another penalty out of 
a referee in the match against Bulgaria, one won- 

One assumes FIFA had another view, another 
camera angle. One trusts it has a cast-iron case and 
that Tassottfs appeal will come to nothing. 

Far him, a farewell to ar cs in deed. For dozens of 
players at this Worid Cup, FIFA’s determination to 
cleanse the sport of persistent foal play must, surely, 
crane as a punch on the nose. If they do not know it 

by now they axe idiots: FIFA is on a crash course, 
cracking down on players who have grown up. 
indeed been coached, with the ethos that foul play is 
fair gain. 

Without doubt, the fear that has settled on dc- ’ ’ 
fenders has made for more attacking flair. It has not ' '■> 
raised the standard of soccer, but it has freed those - " 
who can create, and has undoubtedly made this the - 
most entertaining World Cup since 1970. 

Nevertheless, that 1 1 players, half those taking the * 
field to start the Bulgana-Italy semifinal, did so in 
fear of a second yellow card, and thus automatic 
suspension from the final, takes away some competi- 
tive dement from this contact sport 
FIFA has boldly gone where no sports officials 
before dared. It must now assess and reassess its 
authoritarian achievement. It began with Blatters ' 
personal crusade against thugs and cheats, and like ' 
the former Swiss Army colonel that be is, he acceler- 
ated the advance once he saw how easily the enemy 

Fine. But now, Mr. Blatter, please slew down. 
Talk to the players, talk to the coaches, the arbiters. 
Try to reason with them. TeH them there will be no 
backsliding, but that authority recognizes that ev- ' ' 
eryone is ia this together. 

Search for accord. For a farewell to arms.

Cup Spurs Memories for Pele 

By Alex Yannis 

New York Times Service 

PASADENA California — Pelfe sound- 
ed nostalgic as be recalled Brazil’s dash 
with Sweden nine World Cups ago. a 
match in another decade, another country. 

The year was 1958, and the place was 
Sweden, where Brazil met tbe host coun- 
try’s national team in the final 

Thai was the year the entire worid dis- 
covered and embraced Edson Arantes do 
Nasdmento as Pdfe, its soccer son. It was 
the year Fdfe, at 17, broke into world 
prominence, leading Brazil to its first of 
three Wodd Cup titles. 

Pelfe scored two goals in Brazfl’s 5-2 
triumph over Sweden in that champion- 
ship game. 

“I wanted to talk to my parents in Bra- 
zil, but Z couldn’t do it because communi- 
cation was not good in those days,” Pel 6 
recalled Tuesday, feeling anew the excite- 
ment that kept him up all night after the 

game. “They told me I had to wait until the 
next day to rail, but I was so emotional 1 
didn’t sleep that nigbL” 

Pelfe had made his Worid Cup bow that 
year against the Soviet Union in a first- 
round match, and he said that be identified 
with Ronaldo, the 17-year-old on Brazil's 
1994 team who has not been used yet in 
this year’s tournament. 

“1 feel for Ronaldo,” Pelfe said, “I know 
how he feds because I didn’t play until the 
third game in 1958.” 

Pelfe wasn't noticed against the Soviets, 
but he was when he scored the only goal in 
Brazil's 1-0 triumph over Wales in the 

“That first goal 1 scored in the tourna- 
ment is also the thing I remember the most 
because we qualified for the next round." 
Pelfe said. 

The world probably better remembers 
the three goals he scored in 20 minutes in 
the 5-2 semifinal triumph over France. 

Brazil’s Zagalo Has Seen it All 

Darfd GntiaMgena: 

Caitas Alberto Parreira, BranTs coadi, faced a crush of reporters in Fullerton. 


LOS ANGELES — Mario Zagalo, the 
assistant coach for Brazil, said be was 
hoping Sweden would be as generous in 
Wednesday^ semifinal as it was in 1958 
when the two sides met in tbe final. 

Zagalo scored one of the goals as the 
Brazilians beat the host country, 5-2, to 
record the first of their three world Cup 

“Tfie night before the match it poured 
with rain,” Zagalo recalled. “But the 
Swedes made a huge effort to clear the 
pitch of water, even though they knew that 
they would benefit from playing us on a 
soaked pitch. 

“It was a gesture I will never forget- 
Since then I have always been grateful to 
the Swedish people for this gesture.” 

Zagalo has a remarkable crack record, 
having been involved in all erf Brazfl’s 
previous Worid Cup wins. 

frk P]ayed in all six games of the team’s 
aKJoessraj 1958 campaign, scoring in the 
final, and au six marches in 1962, when 
Brazil retained the trophy. 

When Brazil won for the third in 
1970, Zagalo, capped 33 times, was coach. 

His only failure as coach came in 1974, 

when Brazil went out in the second round. 
Still, there has been tbe criticism. 

“In 1958, we started out with a classic 4- 
2-4 which became 4-3-3 and they were 
already saying I was messing up the left 
winger’s roler he said. “Afterwards they 
discovered that in reality I was ahead of . 
my time. 

“Before the 1970 competition they said 
that I was mad, that i was stupid, that 1 
was going back to 1958. 

“Yet we won the Cup and we scored 
more goals than any other team and lei in 

The criticism “hasn’t changed.” Zagalo 
said. “It’s just that there are more people. 
We had 90 miHion people in Brazil in 1970. ■ 
Today we have 150 million. 

‘TTnere were 90 million would-be coach- . 
es in 1970 against 150 million today.”

of the park would take place 
when it gets dark. Disney engi- 
neers have already figured out a 
way to put rockets on the Wash- 
ington Monument, and every 
15 minutes they could make it 
roar into space. 

“This attraction, by the way, 
would be free and included m 
the price of a ticket," Joe ex- 

“There would be something 
for everybody. We are hoping 
to sign up Ollie North to sit in a 
swing where people could 
throw softballs at him, and if 
they hit him he would be fall 
into a large tank of water. 

“Another attraction would 
be a giant wheel with 20 num- 
bers on it For SI, visitors 
would bet on a number and, if 
they won, they could take home 
a stuffed toy in the likeness of a 
Supreme Court justice."

Joe told me that he didn’t 
think Disney would have any 
problem getting the park off the 
ground. “We would run a clean 
place where even Snow White 
and the Seven Dwarfs would 
feel light at home.”

International Havid Tribune 

P ARIS — The time when musicians built a repu- 
tation by blowing a bunch of choruses of some- 
body dscs tunes are basically over. Personalities are 
now based on original material. Ironically, the Bea- 
ties had a lot to do with that. However, true original- 
ity is in short supply. Worse, it’s not really wanted. 

The lost chords have all been found. All the vamp s 
have been vamped. Free Jazz has been tamed. How 
many new sounds can be left? There are those who 
reply, “as many as human beings.” But the scale is 
tempered, all boms have mouthpieces, keyboards 
have keys. We are hcni ted by our tools, and imagina- 
tion is not exactly being encouraged. New is consid- 
ered old-hat and fresh is stale, a combination of not 
much new left to play and the music business not 
tolerating the unfamiliar . We live in the age of the 
scqueL Something new should preferably be bor- 

You are rarely able to identify a contemporary 
improviser by hearing a few bars, as with Django 
Reinhardt and Ben Webster and the stylists of yore. 
John Scofield is one of the few with a franchise 
sound today. This premier guitar player is now 
touring Europe with Pat Metheny, another one. 
“Playing other peoples’ tunes is still fun,” Scofield 
says. “But it's no longer enough. When Louis Ann- 
strong or Charlie Parker improvised, that was 
enough. Improvisation itself was enough. Just doing 
it was new. Not any more. There have been too 
many stylists. It’s played rail” 

Herbie Hancock took harmonic sophistication on 
a keyboard about as far as possible using a 12 -tone 
scale, at least nobody else has taken it significantly 
further. Tony W illiams and Jack DeJohnette 
stretched time across bar lines to practical limits 
(Denis Chambers, an exception, is still building on 
it). Sam La Faro turned the bass fiddle into a 
melodic instrument 30 years ago, and later ditto 
Jaco Pastorius with the bass guitar. The rest has 
been addenda and finesse. Joe Zawinul found a 
personal sound on synthesizer but who has done it 
since? All young saxophone players fed somehow 
obliged to play Lute Michael Breaker. Exceptions, of 
course, prove the rule, but there are less and less of 

them. The best young players, particularly the best 
tidered to be those who are the 1 

best at 

paid, are considered 
imitating an ancestor. 

Young musicians today appear to have forgotten 
the sage advice of the past master who said: “If 
you're going to sound like somebody else, make sore 
they played a different instrument than you do” 
Cloning is no accident, it is the objective. “He 
sounds just like ...” is a compliment, certainly 
from record companies. With the help of electronic 
gizmos, a sense of history, an inquiring mind and an 
adventurous spirit, Scofield has combined the rock 
textures of Jimi Hendrix with the harmonic implica- 
tions of John Coltrane. You know who it is. 

cq jfltiwy,. Ifrifj 5 * 77 rvn the instrument was rare 20 
years ago and so when Scofield and Medway met in 
Boston they found they had a lot in common. They, 
hooked up as often as possible. % 

“I Can See Your House From Here" (Blue Note), 
their first (co-billed). album together has recently 
been released. I . hate to say tins because it’s not 
rwilly his fault but Par Metheny has had too wry 
clones and it has become difficult to distmgiush his 
(day. He and Scofidd sound like two great guitar 
‘players but you are often not sure vrita-. ' 

Scofield has eamed a contract with a mul titration- 
al record company, a house in the cwontty and two 
cars. He two cbihft-co and Ins wife, Snsaxuishis 
manager (a key dement in a successful jazz career). 
His career has “never boat better.” His songs earn 
rx^ties, he works asofteinas'he wants, he has been, 
on the Tonight show and he gets interviewed a lot A 
New Yack limes reporter, recently asked him why 

fhe^gtgs he (days .with are so often white. 

autumn Rose 

Guitarist Scofield detests all the clones of jazz. 

“Sometimes I think jazz was just an idea," Sco- 
field said “ *Wow! Lets improvise!’ That was really 
radical, to compose in public. To improvise as the 

center of the music. It made sense once but maybe 
now it’s going to slow down. Why should we expect a 
new movement every five years? There will continue 
to be guys who can play, but no movements. At least 
until something rise comes along and then maybe it 
won’t be called jazz.” 

Young Scofield listened to Ricky Nelson and the 
Kingston Trio. There were no teachers in Wilton, 
Connecticut, so he taught hims elf. He listened to the 
blues and to Charlie Christian. It was the early 
. 1960s, guitar playing was becoming a major macho 
pose, like slam-dunkmg. It vyas also more than pose, 
the guitar, overtook the saxophone as the voice of the 

not ww dint question and was not terribly 

happy when I repeated it But it!tu Occurred to me 
that one ieasonfar the sterility of the moment may 
be thede facto segregation of the scene. Years tiga, 
when racism was in yfitntinnalizfi d, thou was more 
integrated jamming and even peaf ortuing than to- 
day. When Idrovclrom Coral Gables into Miami's 
black ghe tto late at night to sit in with Blue MitdbeO 
playing with fiam Janes and His Harlem Square 
Syncopates and the police threw me out, a& of us, 
black and white, felt equally alienated. We were aD 
devout bebojppeis, members erf the same cult Racial 
mixture is always creatively positive m my opinion 
and it can be argued that Mues Davis’s originality 
began to taper on after he separated from his two 
white “hippie" guitar players, Mike Stem and Sco- 

*T hate to count black arid white,” Scofield said. 
“But 1 just played with Joe Henderson and Al 
Foster, 1 play with them a lot Color is not a factor in 
my life. It’s a factor when a blade man won’t hire a 
white musician because of peer pressure, or a white 

leader is scared of hiring a Mack side nian betame.he .
