Serbs Duck a Yes or No 
On Bosnia’s Partition 


Parliament’s Secret ‘ Declaration 9 
Is Intended to Balk Western Plan 


By David B. Ottaway 

Washington Post Senior 

PALE, Bosnia- Herzegovina — The Bos- 
nian Serbs readied a secret decision Tues- 
day on whether they would accept a West- 
ern partition plan for Bosnia and said they 
would make it known when they met inter- 
national mediators in Geneva on Wednes- 
day. 

Waving a sealed pink envelope that he 
said contained a “declaration,” the Bosni- 
an Serbian minister of information, Miros- 
lav Toholj, said after a two-day session of 
the Bosnian Serbian Parliament that it 
would be delivered to the five-nation 
Western Contact Group, which was re- 
sponsible for drawing up the plan. 

“I'm afraid I cannot tell you any more 
than that,” he said. 

Judging from the comments of Serbian 
deputies and officials, it appeared likely 
that the “declaration" contained a careful- 
ly worded and highly ambiguous reply 
aimed at allowing negotiations over the 
plan to continue without giving a clear yes 
or no answer, other than probably accept- 
ing implicitly or explicitly the proposed 
division of the country roughly into two 
parts. 

The reply is likely to contain demands 
that some changes be made in the pro- 
posed map outlining how Bosnia would be 
carved up as well as a request for a clarifi- 
cation on the constitutional principles un- 
derlying the overall peace package, includ- 
ing a demand that the Bosnian Serbs’ own 
“Republic of Srpska” be recognized and 
given the right to form a confederation 
with Serbia. 

The Bosnian Serbian reply may also ask 
for a reopening of the question of the 
status of Sarajevo, the country’s capital, 
which is supposed to come under United 
Nations adminis tration for two years. 

This approach of seeking to reopen the 
negotiations seems likely to infuriate the 
Contact Group — consisting of the United 
States, Russia, France, Britain and Germa-

It had threatened Serbia with more UN 


as chairman of the subcommittee had been

missions supporting Bonn reconsider their 
position in consultation with their govern- 
ments. 

As GATT’s headquarters since 1948, 
Geneva is also host to a number of interna- 
tional organizations with which the WTO 
will have to work. A move to Bonn could 
be a hindrance to the smooth transition 
from GATT to WTO, observers have not- 
ed. (AP, Reuters, AFX) 


It had threatened Serbia with more IJN 
sanctions and the Bosnian Serbs with a 
lifting of the present arms embargo on 
their enemies, the Musiims'and Croats, if 
they did not give an unambiguous yes 
answer. 

But the decision to keep the reply a 
secret was seen here in Pale, the capital of 
the Bosnian Serbian self-prod aimed re- 
public, as a dever tactical political ploy 
aimed at keeping the Western mediators 
off balance and avoiding a crisis at home. 

“It’s a brilliant move because there’s no 
danger of alienating the domestic audience 
by any concessions that may have been 
made, with a subsequent collapse or mo- 
rale, and the Contact Group will not know 
what to expect.” said a Bosnian Serbian 
official. 

Another official said the reply was being 
kept confidential for two days to prevent 
the international media from interpreting 
its meaning before the Bosnian Serbian 
leadership had bad a chance to give its own 
interpretation to members of the Contact 
Group. 

The Western plan calls for the partition 
of Bosnia and would give the Mustim- 
Croatian federation 51 percent of the 
country and the Serbs the remainder, a 
division that would require the Serbs to 
give up about 30 percent of what they now

ROME — Fating a revolt in his 
r uling coalition and a fire-storm of 
public outrage, Prime Minister Silvio 
Berlusconi scrapped Monday a decree 
limiting the powers of Italy’s anti- 
conuption judges and announced that 
a new law would be drawn up to 
protect civil liberties. 

In a humiliating retreat in the face 
of his biggest political crisis, Mr. Ber- 
lusconi effectively conceded that brib- 
ery suspects caught up in the massive 
corruption scandal would again be 
subject to preventive detention, which 
had kept many of them in prison for 
months without trial. 

A government decree published last 
Wednesday lifted pretrial custody 
against bribery suspects, allowing 
more than 1,000 politicians and busi- 
nessmen awaiting trial to be released 
from prison. 

But the intensity of public outrage 
and the danger that his three-month- 
old government might collapse forced 
the media tycoon to recant on his 
promise to bring the rights of defen- 
dants up to the level enjoyed in other 
Western societies. 

“A ministerial crisis now would 
have damaged the government's ne- 
cessity to tackle urgent economic 
problems as well as threatened the 
institutional life of the country,” Giu- 
Iiano Ferrara, a government spokes- 
man. said. 

He said a new draft law would be 
presented to Parliament next month 
that would restore bribery and corrup- 
tion charges to the list of serious of- 
fenses, including terrorism and Mafia- 
related crimes, that are subject to 
pretrial custody. 

Besides dealing a serious blow to 
Mr. Berlusconi's prestige, the crisis 
over the judiciary’s powers of arrest 
also underscored the fragility of his 
fractious ruling coalition and its prob- 
lems in reaching consensus on lough 
issues. 

The separatist Northern League 
and the neofascist National Alliance 
hold disparate views over basic func- 
tions of the national government, in- 
cluding the budget, taxes and regional 
powers. But on the preventive deten- 
tion decree, they joined forces to force 
the prime minister to backtrack on 
what he staked out as a matter of 
immutable principle. 

“Reason has prevailed,” Gian- 
franco Fini, head of the National Alli- 
ance, said after the government com- 
promise was reached. “There are 
neither victors nor vanquished. We 
are extremely satisfied."

U.S. Trade Deficit Leaps 


By Peter Behr 

Washington Pan Service 

WASHINGTON — The United States 
added S9.17 billion more to its trade deficit 
in May, thanks largely to a sharp increase 
in imported goods, and remains headed 
toward the second biggest annual deficit in 
its history, the Commerce Department re- 
ported Tuesday. 

The May deficit, up nearly 8 percent 
from a revised April figure; was affected 
somewhat by the dollar's decline against 
many foreign currencies, which increases 
the price of goods imported into the Unit- 
ed States. 

However, the dollar rose Tuesday be- 
cause of some improvement in the trade 
deficit with Japan, traders said. (Page 12)

BERLIN — He is an unlikely martyr, a traitor whose 
courage far exceeded his competence as an assassin, a 
conservative aristocrat whose admiration for his Nazi 
supezioxs only gradually yielded to revulsion and resis- 
tance. 

But Germany must take its war heroes where it finds 
than and thus. Count Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg has 
been elevated to demigod status for a noble failure: his 
botched effort to kill Adolf Hitler and end the terror of 
the Third Reich. . ' 

Of the2,077 days that passed from the beginning to the 
end of Worid War H, Germans cast revel in only one — 
July 20, 1944, (he date of Stauffenberg’s unsuccessful 
bombing at the Fflhreris East Prussian headquarters. 

In this long season.of 50th anniversaries commemorat- 
ing bygone heroics, Germany’s' opportunity for fond 


remembrance has finally come round and the country is 
making the most of it 

“Nobody Hkes to celebrate a defeat, as Normandy was 


resistance fighters; certainty not.” said Johannes TucheL 
director of Berlin’s Memorial to German Resistance. 


for us,” said Commander Jdrg Duppler, a military histo- 
rian in the German Defense Muustry. “But the 20th of 


rian in the German Defense Munstry. “But the 20th of 
July is really something we’re proud of. My opinion is 
that it’s the only thing we can be proud of during World 
War B and the Nazi regime." 

Stauffenberg’s attempted coup will be honored with a 
higb-lcvd ceremony in Berlin, as well as a traveling 
exhibition titled “Against Hitler: German Resistance to 
National Socialism, 1933-1945.” which opened Thursday 
at the library of Congress in Washington. 

While extolling the virtue of (hose, Eke Stauffenberg, 
whose righteous impulses cost them their Eves, the exhib- 
it inevitably underscores bow few and ineffectual the 
resisters were. 

“You shouldn't get the impression that Germans were 


director of Berlin’s Memorial to German Resistance. 
“You can point out that during this dictatorship a hand- 
ful of people resisted, but you cannot use them to 
oounterbalance the crimes of National Socialism. You 
can’t diminish the atrocities of the Third Reach.” 

As seems inevitable whenever the subject of World 
War II is broached in Germany, controversy is not far 
afield. Chancellor Helmut Kohl has grabbed the spot- 
light for the 50th anniversary commemoration next 
Wednesday and will be the featured speaker at a ceremo- 
ny on the site where Stauffenberg ana several co-conspir- 
ators were executed. 


Mr. Kohl's opponent in the upcoming federal election, 
the Social Democrat Rudolf Scharping, has accused the 
chancellor of politicizing the event and exploiting the

to increase the amount of dollars held by 
foreigners, puLiing downward pressure on 
the dollar’s value. 

In other ways, the bad news in the trade 
report stemmed from positive economic 
factors. A relatively strong U.S. economy 
continued to pull in imports at a fast clip, 
while exports to weaker economies abroad 
could not keep pace. 

With Germany and Japan headed to- 
ward economic recovery, U.S. exports 
should increase during the balance of the 
year, said David RoDey, a senior econo- 
mist with DRI/McGraw Hill Inc„ a Lex- 
ington, Massachusetts, forecasting firm. 

“We’re having a gradual acceleration in 
export growth, but it won't be sufficient to 
keep the monthly trade numbers from wid- 
ening this year,” Mr. Rolley said. 

“Import demand is quite strong because 
the domestic economy is strong, ” he said. 
“And ml prices are moving up. U.S. pur- 
chases of foreign crude oil rose 10 peroeni 
between April and May, or Sl.27 a barrel 
“That’s going to continue.” Mr. Rolley 
said. Stronger economies in Europe and 
Japan translate into higher energy costs 
ahead. 

The breakdown of U.S. trade with vari- 
ous foreign countries provided conflicting 
signals. 

While the U.S. deficit with Japan im- 
proved to S4.4 billion in May, in from SS.5 
billion in April, Japanese trade data indi- 
cate that the deficit between the two coun- 
tries increased in June That data will be 
reported by the U.S. government next 
month. 

The U.S. deficit with Western Europe 
expanded to SI .4 billion in May, compared 
with S83 million the previous month, but

Panic Drives Rwandan Exodus 


Victors Vow to Spare Noncombatant Civilians 


By Barry James 

Imemanonal Herald Tribune 

Despite assurances from the 
victorious Rwandan Patriotic 
Front that it will not kill non- 
combatant civilians, panicked 
refugees fled across the frontier 
into Zaire on Tuesday in an 
exodus of “biblical” propor- 
tions. 

A further 500,000 people 
were reported to have crossed 
into Zaire from southwestern 
Rwanda in addition to the mil- 
lion or more who fled across the 
northwestern frontier into the 
region around Goma. 

The fear now is that up lo two 
milli on more refugees could 


flood into Zaire through the se- 
curity zone France established 
in the southwest of Rwanda. 

“The whole country is com- 
ing out of its borders,” said a 


spokesman in Goma for the 
United Nations High Commis- 
sioner for Refugees, which has 


stockpiled food and supplies 
for about 500,000 refugees and 
says it is overwhelmed. “It is 
frightening, of biblical propor- 
tions," said the agency’s 
spokeswoman in Geneva, Syl- 
vana Foa.

otic Front has captured the en-

of the security zone. It swore in 


In Overcoming Hutu 


By Donatella Lorch 

New York Tima Service 

After nearly four years of intermittent war, Rwanda’s 
Tutsi-dominated rebel front has routed the larger, Hutu- 
controlled Rwandan Army through a combination of perse- 
verance, superior tactics, and a big edge in motivation and 
discipline. 

“The rebels were both better led and better trained,” said 


Frank Smyth, the author of “Arming Rwanda: The Anns 
Trade H uman Rights Abuses in the Rwandan War,” a 
report by Human Rights Watch released in January. “They 
were a more highly motivated and disciplined force. It's 
surprising to me that the army held out as long as it did. They 
felt they were fighting for their lives. The Presidential Guard 
were good killers. But overall, this was a classic despot army ” 

Although combat casualties were small compared with the 

200.000 to 500.000 Tutsi civilians slaughtered by Hutu mili- 
tary and militia units, the war between the Rwandan Patriotic 
Front and the government was vicious and often involved 
modern weapons. In the battle for the capital Kigali each 
side pounded the other with heavy mortars, recoilless rifles 
and howitzers. 

The two sides had been involved in an arms race since 1990, 
after the rebels’ unsuccessful invasion of Rwanda from bases 
in Uganda. The rebels won some territory in the north, bur 
failed to go farther because of insufficient training or arms, 
and also because the French government sent in paratroopers 
and advisers to bolster the Rwandan government. 

The size of the Rwandan Army was rapidly increased from 

5.000 soldiers to about 30,000, Mr. Smyth said Thousands 
more Hutu were trained as militiamen by the ruling party of 
President Juvtoal Habyarimana. But Mr. Smyth said that 
aside from some special units, most of the soldiers and 
militiamm were undisciplined 

The rebel forces, whose top officers had combat experience 
righting in the rebellion that installed Yoweri Museveni as the 
president of Uganda in 1986, also grew, to about 15,000. The 
source of their arsenal is less clear-cut: They have insisted that 


their weapons were either stolen from the Ugandan military, 
won in rattle or bought on the open market with money 
donated by the Tutsi diaspora. 

The rebels told Mr. Smyth they had long-range Katyusha 
rocket launchers, mortars, recoilless rifles and land mines. 

The rebels had observed a cease-fire since December 1993. 
But when Mr. Habyarimana’s plane crashed on April 6 and 
mass killings by Hutu militia began, the rebels moved to the 


outskirts of Kigali It took them nearly three months, howev- 
er. to capture the capitaL 


er, to capture the capitaL 

Rebel officials insist Kigali was never their immediate goal 
and Mr. Smyth said he believed rebel tacticians felt that if 
they captured Kigali too soon, their troops risked being 
encircled and bogged down. 

“1 think the RTF's primary goal was to target the militias 
more than the array," Mr. Smyth said. “Those were the ones 


Rebel tactics involved first sweeping through the eastern 
sector of the country and then slowly choking off the capital 
By the time they captured Kigali's airport, in late May,

many were fleeing.

a new government — with 
members of the majority Hutu 
tribe as president and prime 
minister — in Kigali, the capi- 
tal on Tuesday. 

In Paris, the French foreign 
minister, Alain Juppfi, conced- 
ed that the From appeared “to 
have effectively won the war." 

He said France would negoti- 
ate the end of its humanitarian 
mission with the Patriotic 
Front, and called cm it to follow 
up its victory by assnring peo- 
ple it would not harm them. 

At the same time, in what 
appeared to be an attempt to 
head off a threat by the Patriot- 
ic Front to enter the security 
zone in search of genocidal Jail- 
ers, French officials said that 
members of the former Rwanda 
government have left the zone 
and gone to Zaire. As many as 
500,000 people, mostly Tutsi 
were massacred by the Hutu 
army and mili tias following the 
death of the Rwandan presi- 
dent on April 6 in an air crash. 

Although there have been un- 
confirmed reports of summary 
executions, there has been noth- 
ing to suggest that the Patriotic 
Front has engaged in indis- 
criminate large-scale killing , ac- 
cording to Kenneth Roth, exec- 
utive director of H uman Rights 
Watch/ Africa. 

Aid workers said virulent ra- 
dio broadcasts, warning that 
the Tutsis were coming to kill 
their opponents, had touched 
off the exodus. 

In Paris, Jean-Luc Bodin, the 
head of International Action 
Against Hunger, said the de- 
posed Rwandan government 
had taken a mobile radio with it 
into Zaire and was “scaring 
people out of their wits.” 

The head of the Patriotic 
Front forces, Paul Kagame, 
said earlier: “There is no need 
for anyone to flee Rwanda. We 
guarantee all Rwandans stabil- 
ity and security.” 

In Brussels, a spokesman for 
the Doctors Without Borden 
relief agency, said it was urgent- 
ly necessary to get the refugees 
home to harvest crops and plant 
food for next year.

A German businessman was

JERUSALEM Muslim 
militants shot and killed an Is- 
raeli Army officer in the Gaza 
Strip on Tuesday in what they 
called a revenge attack for the 
killing of two Palestinians and 
the wounding of scores of oth- 
ers on Sunday when laborers 
rioted near a border crossing 
into Israel 

The aimed wing of the mili- 
tant Islamic group, Hamas, 
claimed responsibility for the 
attack, an ambush of an Israeli 
patrol jeep near Rafah on the 
border between the Gaza Strip 
and Egypt 

Under the Israeli-Palestine 
liberation Organization accord 
on Palestinian self-rule in Gaza, 
Israel controls the border zone 
between the strip and Egypt 
Palestinian police are required 
to prevent attacks from the self- 
rule areas on Israelis. 

A leaflet signed by Hamas’s 
armed wing, the Qassam bri- 
gades, said the shooting was 
“swift and direct” revenge for 
“the terrible massacre carried 
out by Rabin’s soldiers” cm 
Sunday at the Erez border 
checkpoint az the northern edge 
of the Gaza Strip. 

Israeli soldiers had opened 
fire to repel laborers who had 
hurled rocks and bottles, sen Ere 
to a bus depot and destroyed a 
gas station. 

The attack on Tuesday oc- 
curred at about 6:00 AM. when 
an army patrol along the fron- 


tier with Egypt stopped to 
check a ladder leaning on the 


check a ladder leaning on the 
border fence, an army spokes- 
man said. This ladder was ap- 
parently intended to lure the 
soldiers to the area. 

When the officer got out of 
the jeep, gunmen opened fire 
From a budding on the outskirts 
of Rafah, hitting him in the 
head. Other soldiers returned 
fire, but the assailants escaped.

Strict Rule Vowed in Ukraine 


Rouen 

KIEV — President Leonid D. Kuchma 
took the oath of office Tuesday as Ukraine’s 
second post-Soviet head of state and said the 
time for romanticism and experiments was 
over. 

Mr. Kuchma pledged to forge ahead with 
economic changes and quickly relieve the 
poverty caused by two and a half years of 
recession. 

“Strict and unpopular measures will have 
to be taken,” he said. “We must not yield to 
the temptation of cosmetic measures, of clos- 
ing our eyes, of deceiving the nation. 

“The state has no time for experiments. 
The people have neither the time nor the 
patience for them.” 

He added: “Political romanticism and eu- 
phoria associated with a new state need to be 
replaced with realism, concrete action and 
pragmatism.” 

Smce his resounding election win over Leo- 
nid M. Kravchuk, the former Communist 
who led Ukraine to independence, Mr. 
Kuchma has pledged to proceed with “evolu- 
tionary, not revolutionary reforms.” 

He has stressed that entering an economic 
union with Russia, which he promised during 


his campaign, does not mean restoring 
Ukraine’s Soviet-era links with Moscow and 1 
will not harm relations with Germany, .the 
United States and other countries. 

Mr. Kuchma has said his first moves trill be 
to liberalize controlled foreign exchange mar- 
kets and to ease tax burdens. 

Official figures released on the eve of the 
inauguration underscored the extent of the 
catastrophe after Mr. Kravchuk’s failure to 
put together a comprehensive economic pro- 
gram. 

The figures show that industrial production 
plunged nearly 40 percent in the first six 
months of the year, with production of souk 
consumer goods falling by up to 80 percent 

Mr. Kuchma also proposed making Rus- 
sian, the mother tongue of a large rummers of 
Ukraine’s 52 million people, an official lan- 
guage. Ukrainian, discouraged for centuries 
under czarist and Krendm rule, would remain 
the sole “state language.” 

His proposal provoked cries of “shame” 
from nationalists, but they were overwhelmed 
by applause from the large contingents of 
Communists an<! allies elected to Parliament 
earlier this year. ... 


Confided by Our Staff From Dbpacha 

STRASBOURG, France — 
Prime Minister Jacques Santer 
of Luxembourg, the European 
Union’s chief executive-desig- 
nate, said Tuesday that he op- 
poses the veto power that mem- 
bers wield over sensitive 
matters. 

Mr. Santer also expressed op- 
position to Britain's exemption 
from the group’s labor laws and 
social security policies. 

His comments came during 
the first session of a three-day 
grilling by the 567-seat Europe- 
an Parliament, which will vote 
Thursday on whether to ap- 
prove his nomination. 

Mr. Santer, chosen by EU 
leaders last week after Prime 
Minister John Major of Britain 
vetoed the Belgian prime minis- 
ter, Jean-Luc Defaaene, admit- 
ted he was embarrassed by his 
appointment. 

“I fed very DJ at ease with 
regard to the procedure that’s 
bom adopted,” he said. “For 
several days I was in a very 
sensitive position. It was a very 
difficult situation. I had to ex- 
amine my own conscience.” 

Despite benefiting from the 
veto power, Mr. Santer said he 
was against the u nanimi ty 
rule” for decisions made by the 
12 members on foreign policy 
and other important areas. 

He said he had always object- 
ed to Britain’s reluctance to join 
its partners on the Continent in 
their tradition of social welfare. 

“A European Union can’t 
conceive of itself without a so- 
cial dimension,” he said. 

Mr. Santer met with the EU 


assembly’s two mam political 
parties, the Socialists and the 
centrist Christian Democrats. 

Under the trade bloc's new 
Treaty on European Union, the 
assembly has the right to ap- 
prove the president of the Elf’s 
executive branch, the European 
C ommiss ion 

If the Parliament rejects Mr. 
Santer, a Christian Democrat 
who has served as prime minis- 
ter for 10 years, EU leaders will 
be forced to find another candi- 
date. 

In other action Tuesday, a 
German Socialist, Klaus 
Haensch, 55, was elected presi- 
dent by an overwhelming ma- 
jority of the legislature's 567 
members. He exhorted mem- 
bers, almost two-thirds of 
whom are new to the job^ to get 
down to business. 

“I think today we now need 
to get down to weak and do oar 
duty,” Mr. Haensch told the 
house. 

He vowed to raise the Parlia- 
ment's profile and win it more 
powers when the European 
Union’s internal workings are 
reviewed in 1996. “The Europe- 
an Parliament must become 
more visible and not just reap- 
pear again in 1999 for the next 
elections,” he said. 

Whether the Parliament sub- 
mits Mr. Santer to tough ques- 
tioning or gives hfrh easy ap- 
proval will provide an eariy 
indication of how it plans to use 
powers won under the 1992 
Maastricht Treaty cm greater 
union. 

Mr. Haensch told 'he Ger- 
man radio, “A candidate cho- 


sen by heads of stair and gov- 
ernment who does not garner a 
majority in the European Par- 
liament will not have the neces- 
sary authority tp create his 
commission and submit it for a 
vote of confidence by the Par- 
liament.” 

Another battle in the Parlia- 
ment wlQ involve the makeup of 
the European Commission, 
over which it will have thepow- 
cr to accept or reject this falL 

The outgoiiigParliameat said 
it wanted the nominees for the 
nondc ct od commission to go 
before pariiamcntaiy commit-- 
tees for hearings of the kind 
hdd by the U& Congress. It 
hinted it would block the com- 
mission if it did - not contain 
enough women. The- current 
EU administration contains 
only one woman member. 

Mr. Haensch implored depu- 
ties, notorious in the past for 
absenteeism at voting time, to

TRAVEL UPDATE 


IJ.S. Warns on Russian Air Carriers 


WASHINGTON (Reuters) — The State Department instruct- 
ed U.S. government employees in Russia to defer routine local air 
travel calling Russian carriers “unreliable” and “deteriorating.” 

With the breakup of Aearoflot, a department spokesman said 
Monday, “domestic air travelers must often cope with unpredict- 
able sched u les and dif ficult .conditions including deterioration 
-and ovedoading." The policy did not affect private citizens, 
although the State Department said that Americans might wish to 
consider the infonnatiou when may-big travel plans. 

U-S. and R u s s ian civil aviation authorities are engaged in a 
joint program to deal with the problems. Until the evaluation had 
been completed, only official air travel deemed “important and 
absolutely necessary” should be undertaken on Russian air cam- 
era, the spokesnum said.

r, i m ~~~ Stephen G. Breyer’s nemmatian to the 

supreme Court has won unanimous approval from the Senate

The 10 Democrats and 8 Republicans cm the panel voted to 
recozmnend approval of President Bill Clinton's nomination 
of Judge Breyer, a longtime federal judge from Boston. 

The committee chairman, Joseph R. Biden Jr., Democrat of 
Ddawarc, said he hoped that the vote by the panel would get 
Judge Breyer’s nomination before the full Senate oh Friday. If 
"CM* said, the Senate vote would come eariy sect week.

bolstered his reputation as a careful pragmatist who is likely 
to find a comfortable borne at the middle of the generally 
canservauve high court. He at rimes sounded 'somewhat

separation of church and state. But he also indicated that he

Peeping at Tax Files for Fun and Profit 


WASHINGTON — More than 1,300 employees of the 
Internal Revenue Service around the conn try have been 
investigated since 1989 for posable improper use ,of the 
agency’s computers to snoop on taxpayers, according to 
government officials. 

. In most instances, the violations appear to have Involved 
browsing by curious employees who were interested, for 
example, in the financial standing of friends, neighbors, 
enemies, potential in-laws, stockbrokers, celebrities and for- 
mer spouses. 

In about a third of the cases, employees have been subject- 
ed to sanctions ranging from counseling to discharge , with 
several hundred cases still unresolved. Most of the rest of the 
investigations concluded that the employees were engaged in 
official business. 

Some employees were said to have been guilty only of 
misguided attempts to help friends cut through red tape or 
interpret often confusing Internal Revenue Service communi- 
cations. 

A few cases, however, involved tampering with data to 
generate fraudulent refunds and kickbacks to the employees. 
Some indictments are said to hav& resulted. 

“How much of. this was prelude to fraud and how much was 
just prurient window-peeping is difficult to say,** said Senator 
John Glenn, Democrat of Ohio, who heads the Senate Gov- 
ernment Affairs Committee. 

Bat he called the Knifings “disturbing,” adding that the 
agency had a moral and legal obligation for confidential! ty 
“when Americans sit down and provide the government with 
their most personal information.” (NYT) 


WASHINGTON — The volatility of Virginia’s four-way 
Senate race is reflected in a new poll that shows the Republi- 
can nominee, Oliver L. North, and the Democratic nominee, 
Charles S. Robb, tied for the lead. 

Each mm was the choice of 29 perce n t of likely voters 
surveyed, while the two independents, farmer Democratic 
Governor L. Douglas Wilder and J. Marshall Coleman, were 
favored by 16 peroent and 11 percrat, respectively. Fifteen 
percent were undecided. Three previous polls by other organi- 
zations have shown Mr r Robb leading, although not by 
substantial margins. 

The new-poll, of 527 randomly selected filody voters, was 
conducted July 7 through 15 by the survey research laborato- 
ry of Virginia Commonwealth University. (WP)

Carpikd by Our Suff Fnm Dopattha 

Washington — Explosive jolts 

from comet fragments have left Jupiter 
pocked with black scars, one of which 
is now the most prominent visual fea- 
ture on the planet. More is coming: 
three punches near the same location 
within a 20-bour period. 

Astronomers said Tuesday that a 
dark black patch, resembling a blade 
eye, left by die impact of comet frag- 
ment G has become the most easily 
seen mark on Jupiter in the 400-year 
history of observing the planet from 
Earth. * - 

Lucy McFadden, a University of 
Maryland astronomer, said the impact 
mark is so large that amateurs using 
backyard tdesdOpes under dear skies 
should be able to see iL 

“That’s something that has never 
happened before.” said Steve Maran, a 
National Aeronautics and Space Ad- 
ministration astronomer. Usually, 
only professionals or advanced ama- 


teurs can see the details on Jupiter's 
face. 

Mr. Maran said observers at the 
South Foie, where Jupiter is always 
visible this time of year, said an erupt- 
ing fireball after fragment K collided 
was equal to the explosion on Monday 
of fragment G. Both fireballs, ob- 
served with infrared instruments, were 
nearly the size of Earth and the mark 
left behind by G is even larger. 

“I'm sure we’ll have a large spot 
from K also,” said Mr. Maran. 

Jupiter is the fourth brightest heav- 
enly object to be seen from Earth. Only 
the sun, moon and Venus are brighter. 

The black marks on the planet are 
the gaseous broth of chemicals and 
particles suspended in Jupiter’s upper 
atmosphere after fireballs caused by 
the high-speed collisions of the comet 
pieces. Even though the visible sphere 
of Jupiter is all gas, experts said the 
impact scars may last for months. 

Chemical composition of the black 
marks is still unknown, but Ms. 


McFadden said scientists have been 
puzzled to find no chemical signature 
for water in images taken with special 
filters. She said rock in the comet frag- 
ments is loaded with oxygen and Jupi- 
ter itself is about 74 percent hydrogen. 
Since the impacts mix the two ele- 
ments that make up water, scientists 
had expected to detect its presence. 

“It may still be too hot at the impact 
sites for water to settle out.** she said. 
“It may rain eventually on Jupiter 
when it cools. We'd realJv like to see 
some regular H.O.” 

Jupiter's sphere was first observed 
in the 1 7th century, in the early days of 
the telescope. Galileo discovered the 
Jovian moms and later observers spot- 
ted the Great Red Spot, a permanent 
cyclonic feature of the planet. Later 
still, astronomers observed the bands 
of swirling gases that make up the 
visible face of the giant planet. 

Since observing started, said Mr. 
Maran, the prominent features on Ju- 
piter have remained relatively un- 


cnanged until comet Shoemaker- Levy 

9 started its bombardment last Satur- 
day. 

Fragment G has been the most pow- 
erful so far. but reports of the impact 
early Tuesday of fragment K suggest 
it loo. was very large. 

Images taken by telescopes in Cali- 
fornia, Texas, Hawaii and Chile show' 
a stepping-stone trail of marks or hot 
spots caused by the nine comet shards 
that hit by noon Tuesday. Four im- 
pacts are expected on Wednesday, in- 
cluding the start of a triple w hammy in 
which three fragments will hit Jupiter 

10 hours apart in virtually the same 
spot. 

Fragment Q2 wall be the first to hit 
followed by fragment R 10 hours later. 
Fragment S will be 10 hours after that. 
Since Jupiter rotates once every 10 
hours, this puts the three at the same 
longitude. All 21 fragments in the 
comet train are hitting at the same 
latitude, or distance from die planet’s 
equator. 


The comet bombardment is expect- 
ed to end Friday with the impact of 
fragment W. The letters do not strictly 
follow the alphabet. Some fragments 
disappeared, along with their letter. 
Others split apart and each piece also 
acquired a number, such as Q2. 

The six -day series of collisions has 
linked astronomers around the world, 
many of them communicating via the 
U.S.-based computer network Internet 
to share their observations. 

In Antarctica, where at this time of 
year the sun never rises and Jupiter 
never sets, the astronomer Hien 
Nguyen reported seeing impact sites of 
fragments A, C, E, G ana H, with G 
being “the most spectacular so far.” 

Photographs taken by the orbiting 
Hubble Space Telescope showed three 
dark dots in a line in Jupiter’s southern 
hemisphere representing the remains 
of fragments A, C and E.

CIA’s Chief Admits 
‘Grave’ Errors in 
Handling Ames Case 


By R. Jeffrey Smith 

WasHngwn Post Serria 
WASHINGTON — The 
CIA made grave errors in han- 
dling Aldrich Hazea Ames, ac- 
cording to its director, R. James 
Woolsey, who called for over- 
hanfing the “attitudes, norms, 
and practices” that kept the 
agency from uncovering Mr. 
Ames’s espionage fra Moscow. 

Mr. Woolsey denounced Mr. 
Ames as “a malignant betrayer 
of his country” and a “warped, 
murdering traitor’’ who led ILS. 
agents to their death because he 
“wanted a bigger house and a 
Jaguar” 

- CIA officials suggested be- 
fore Mr. Woolley’s speech that 
h was designed m part to pre- 
empt what they feared was a 
forthcoming media blitz by Mr. 
Ames to criticize the agency. 
Mr. Ames was sentenced m 
April to fife in prison without 
parole after pleading guilty to 
selling secrets to Moscow. 

However, the director also 
said for the first time that his 
agency’s failure to prevent or 


ly atiecade had stemmed from 
miaiHiiiii ganen t and what he 
depicted as a defective Central 
Intelligence Agency “culture.” 

Mr.' Woolsey disclosed, fra 
example, that some colleagues 
had raised questions about Mr. 
Ames’s suitability and perfor- 
mance before he was promoted 
to the counterintelligence post 
from which he betrayed vital 
U.S. secrets. The director said 
“these questions and concerns 
were not shared outside” the 
CIA’s Latin American division. 


where Mr. Ames had previously 
worked. 

Mr. Woolsey also said he had 
concluded that appropriate in- 
vestigative resources were not 
dedicated promptly in the 
Ames case at a critical juncture 
after suspicions of a Russian 
spy at the agency first arose in 
the mid-1980s. 

Another senior intelligence 
official said Mr. Woolsey was 
referring to a three-year period 
from 1988 to 1991, “when this 
case, for a variety of reasons, 
lay fallow ” 

In remarks that paralleled 
what congressional critics have 
been saying for months about 
the CIA’s handling of Mr. 
Ames and its investigation into 
the unexplained deaths of U.S. 
agents, Mr. Woolsey suggested 
that these and other mistakes 
may have kept CIA managers 
from stopping what would 
eventually become the most 
embarrassing counterintelli- 
gence failure in the agency’s

Studies here. Neither the Direc- 
torate of Operations where Mr. 
Ames worked, “nor for that 
matter any other part of the 
CIA can function as a fraterni- 
ty, much less a white male one.” 

Quoting from a recently com- 
pleted, classified study of the 
agency’s operations that result- 
ed from Mr. Ames’s arrest, Mr. 
Woolsey said defects in the 
CIA’s culture allowed person- 
nel problems “to be passed 
along rather be dealt with.” 

The shortcoming? also en- 
couraged “a sense of trust and 
camaraderie” that made some 
employees act elitist or arro- 
gant, and graded CIA officers 
such as Mr. Ames according to 
the number of agents they re- 
cruited rather than the quality 
of intefligence they developed. 

Mr. Woolsey said he was tak- 
ing a series of immediate steps 
to reform the agency’s opera- 
tions.

China’s Great Wall of Water 

Aqueduct Plan for Beijing Faces Resistance 


By Patiick E. Tyler 

Not York Tima Service 

DANJIANGKOU, Orina — One of the larg- 
est public works projects ever conceived — a 
plan to divert water from a huge reservoir here to 
Beijing, 1,400 kilometers to the north — * has 
been proposed by China’s Com m u n ist Party 
leadership to save the capital from perpetual 
drought in the next century. 

Rivaling even the construction of the Great 
Wall, in the words of a government engineer, a 
huge aqueduct starting here in central China and 
r unning north to Beijing and Tianjin seems the 
only solution to maintaining China’s capital as a 
center for industry, commerce and government. 

But because the project would cost billions of 
dollars and would benefit a relatively small part 
of the Chinese population — less than 10 percent 
— it is certain to ignite debate among China s 
re gi o nal leaders, who are competing for scarce 
budget resources. 

Provincial officials in the south complain, as 
China's president, Jiang Zemin, did recently, 
that Chinese cities waste billions of liters of 
water each year through poor conservation prac- 
tices and leaky toilets. Conservation should be 
tried first, they say. . 

“If a country can send satellites and missiles 
into space, it should be able to dry up its toilets.” 
Mr. Jiang complained last month, sending Com- 
munist Party cadres skittering to mount a na- 
tionwide campaign against makers of shoddy 
toilets. 

During the late 1950s, 100,000 Chinese peas- 
ants, seized by the political fever of Mao Ze- 
dong’s Great Leap Forward, muscled a moun- 
tain^ stone to block one of the Yangtze River’s 
largest tributaries here and build a dam that 
would control floods, generate electricity for 
China's modernization and irrigate the land for a 
new era of agriculture. For the glory of commu- 
nism, and to catch up with the West, they aban- 
doned their farms, lived in mud huts and ate 
starvation rations. . „ 

But the Great Leap’s economic flaws instead 
brought famine to China, killing lens of millions 
and scaling bade huge projects. The bills here 
remain denuded, stark evidence of the desperate 
years that followed. 

The aqueduct project has rekindled the hopes 
of the local population that this dam, after it is 
raised 15 meters more to create a mighty new 


reservoir to feed a northbound aqueduct, will 
finally fulfill the expectations of the fll-fated 
Great Leap. . , . 

The aqueduct's enormous flow, contained m 
its man -made channel, will have to cross 219 
rivers and streams along its path, inducting the 
Yellow River. To accomplish this, Chinese engi- 
neers are prepared to dig either an eight-ltilome- 
ter-long water tunnel under the Yellow River or 
erect over it an aqueduct supported by 160 giant

China is facing a huge bill for new building that

“Every province has its own very ambitious 
plans to build bridges and power plants and 
infrastructure, and they are all competing for 
national resources,” said Fan Gang, an econo- 
mist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. 

One Chinese official predicted real opposition 
when the water project was submitted to the 
National People's Congress, where party mem- 
bers can press regional claims against it. 

“I think this project wiU be more politically 
complicated than the Three Gorges Dam," the 
economist said. . , _ . _ 

The Three Gorges project, a 20-year, $10 bil- 
lion undertaking, was approved after four years 
of contentious debate within the Communist 
Party leadership. It is the largest public works 
project in China today, designed to tame the 
Yangtze River while also generating electricity.

Foreign Minister Ali Alatas 
said Indonesia handled last 
week's protest by Catholic 
youths with restraint. 

“All the facts show that there 
was restraint, an appropriate 
response by police that toed to 
manage the demonstration,” 
Mr. Alatas said. “No one was 
seriously hurt because all the 
rim e now riot gear is used. No 
shooting, nothing." 

Indonesia, which is mostly 
Muslim, formally annexed the 
eastern half of Timor island on 
July 17, 1976. It commemorat- 
ed the event Monday.

tinning intimidation. 

Residents have said police 


groups insi de and outride China, because it will 
flood one of the most scenic river settings in the 
world. 

The South-North Water Diversion project, as 
the aqueduct is formally known, would be the 
second-largest national construction project. It 
would require a six-year effort to expand the 
reservoir to roughly the same size as that of the 
p lann ed Three Gorges reservoir. . 

The water crisis in northern China is also an 
indicator of how China' s environment is strug- 
gling under the demands placed on it by 1 2 
billion people, demands that can only grow. 

China’s population is expected to peak at 1.6 
billion to 1.7 billion in the third decade of the 
next century.

pressed concern to Jakarta and 
urged local security forces to 
use restraint. 

Residents said 14 people 
were detained and about 20 in- 
jured in the clash, the worst 
since troops gunned down up to 
200 demonstrators at a Dili 
cemetery in late 1991. 

An East Timor resistance

Reuters 

BONN - The European 
Union has. offered a 

5SJS3SS 

talists* calls for her dratiu rOT- 

ciett Minister KJausKmkelsatd 

Tuesday. 

Mr Kinkel, whose country 
currently holds toe Euxopom 
Union presidency, said that EU 
foreign ministers agreed in 
Brussels on Monday to call on 
Dhaka to take aB necessary 
measures to protect Ms. Nasrm 

and allow lwr to leave the coun- 
try if she wished. 

He said be had summoned 
Bangladesh’s ambassador m 

Bonn to discuss Ms. Nasnns 
plight and had instructed the 
Goman Embassy in Dhaka to 
involve itself in toe case and. 
. issue a visa to Ms. Nasrin if she 
wanted to come here- 
“Ms. Nasrin is welcome, in 
Germany naturally, but also in 
any other country of the Euro- 
pean Union which she wishes to 
visit," Mr. Kinkel said. 


Press Derides Murayama PoU 


Agate France-Prase 

TOKYO — Major Japanese 
newspapers on Tuesday derid- 
ed Paine Minister Tomiichi 
Murayama’ s first policy speech 
for its lack of concrete measures 
to back up his “caring" policies. 

“What does ‘politics that care 
about people* mean?,” the 
Mainidn Shimbun, one of Ja- 
pan’s three major dailies, asked 
in an editoriaL 

“If s too abstract and sounds 


Him nothing but a campaign slo- 
gan," toe newspaper said of Mr. 
Murayama’s pledge to the Diet 
on Monday to engage in politics 
that would ensure “hard-work- 
ing ordinary people" would be 
able to have “rewarding and 
anxiety-free lives.” 

The conservative Yomiuri 
Shimb un, which has the largest 
circulation in Japan, was even 
more critical. 

“When such a highly emo- 


tional and substanceless .state- 
ment is made by the nation’s 
top leader, it is time to start 


Italian Criticizes Algerian Rulers 


“The latest acts of violence 
against the East Timor popula- 
tion are clearly linked to toe 
rapidly deteriorating situation 
of Indonesia," said Jose Gus- 
mao. Southeast Aria represen- 
tative of the National Council 
of Maubere Resistance. 


PARIS — Foreign Minister 
Antonio Martino of Italy, 
bluntly spelling out his coun- 
try’s differences with France, 
was quoted Tuesday as saying 
that Algeria’s army-backed 
government had lost its legiti- 
macy. 

*Tt lost the elections and 
‘stole’ the result of the vote," he 
«wd in an interview with the 
daily newspaper he Monde. He 


was referring to the cancellation 
of a general election in January 
1992 that the fundamentalist Is- 
lamic Salvation Front had been 
on the verge of winning. 

In sharp contrast to Foreign 
Minister Alain Jnpp6 of 
France, the Italian minister said 
it had been a mistake from the 
outset to stop the democratic 

process. “Thai is why we are in 

favor of a dialogue between the 
authorities and nonestremist el- 
ements in society," he said. 


the Yomiuri editorial said* was. 
that Mr. Murayama’s Social 
Democratic Party had used 
“such honeyed words before in 
armwinring policies that com- 
pletely disregard the viability of 
measures proposed or whether 
fiscal resources esdsf 'tor fulfill . 
them." 

. "We are deeply anxious that 
the Murayama adminis tration 
may postpone pending prob- 
lems, however urgent or un- 
avoidable they may be, on the 
pretext of ‘caring’," it said. 

Even the Asahi Shimbun, in 
the most sympathetic, editorial, 
complained about the lack of 
substance. 

While hailing his pkSdge.tO 
give priority to ordinary people 

rather than toe state or indus- 
try, the newspaper said he 
“should have offered .specific 
policy proposals to the full ex- 
tent" to back his promises.

LOVE AND HATRED: 

Hie Stormy Marriage of 
Leo and Sonya Tolstoy 



By William L Shirer. 400 pages. 
$25. Simon & Schuster. 


Reviewed by 
Micbiko Kakutani 


T HANKS to Leo and Sonya 
Tolstoy’s shared compul- 


J. Tolstoy’s shared compul- 
sion for chronicling their own 
lives, their marriage remains 
one of toe most documented 
relationships in hterary history, 
minutely chronicled in then 
own diaries and letters as well 
as in the writings of their chil- 
dren and assorted hangers-on. 

As these first-person ac- 
counts and numerous biogra- 
phies attest, their marriage was 
a tempestuous one, by turns 
passionate and acrimonious; 
loving and bitter, nurturing and 
mutually destructive. 

The latest assessment of their 
relationship — “Love and Ha- 


tred," by the late William L. 
Shir ex, toe author of “The Rise 
and Fall of the Third Reich” — 
provides a highly readable ac- 
count of their m arri a g e, al- 
though it does not add appre- 
ciably to our knowledge or 
understanding of the couple. 

The volume lacks both the 


Sonya: The Stoiy of toe Tolstoy 

Marriage." 

like SmoluchowsJri’s book, 
“Love and Hatred” relies heavi- 
ly on the Tolstoys' diaries: In- 
deed, it often devolves into a 
day-by-day paraphrasing of 
their words, combined with ex- 
cerpts from their journals. 

As a result, the focus tends to 
be myopic: lots erf detail about 
mdivKhial squabbles with too 
little assessment of the huger 
patterns in the couple’s rela- 
tionship. 

Stirr er’s analysis of Tolstoy’s 
fiction is superficial and trite in 
the extreme. And his portraits 
of the author, his wife and their 
friends also tend to be highly 
two-dimensional. 

Tolstoy’s life was a mass of 
conflicts: he was a womanizer 
and a gambler who later 
preached a doctrine of chastity 
and renunciation; a member of 
the Russian aristocracy who en- 
vied the peasants’ simplicity of 
life; a famous artist who de- 
nounced his own greatest works 
of fiction; a prophet of brother-, 
ly love who spent his last years 
in a household filled with re- 
crimination. 


nya happily served as her hus- 
band's amanuensis, and instead 
focuses insistently on the un- 
happy later years, which hap- 
pen to have been more heavily 
documented. The reader, conse- 
quently, has a hard time under- 
standing both the roots of the 
couple’s difficulties and the- 
roots of their devotion. 


As depicted by Shirer, toe 
couple's final years together 
-were a sad, sometimes farcical 
ddnc& toward separation. Tol- 
stoy finally left He died, at 82, 
in toe stationmastei’s house at a 
railroad station, far from home.

Instead ofprobing thescam-

the paper said, he cannot avoid 
facing the problem of raising

necessary funds. - 

The dailies also questioned 
; where Mr. Murayama stood in 
the debate on whether Japan’s 
Self-Defense Forces are consti- 
tutional. . 

• it is widdy believed that Mr. 
tifnmyauUL, the first Socialist to

Meanwhile^ the chief cabinet 
secretary. Kobo fgarashi, said 
Tuesday be thought the prime 
. minister would make a state- 
ment on whether he thought toe 
military was constitutional 

Asked if he would use the 
word “constitutional" during 
the parliamentary questioning, 
Mr. Murayama replied, “It de- - 
pends on the questions." **

Time of High Peril 
For Clinton’s Term 


Haiti, Whitewater Hearings 
And Health Care Intertwined 


By Douglas Jehl 

New York Tima Semce 

WASHINGTON — As its 
showdown with Haiti’s military 
leaders enters Its tensest stage, 
the White House risks being be- 
sieged with problems on at least 
three major fronts. 

The confluence will almost 
certainly make the month 
ahead the most perilous of Pres- 
ident Bill Clinton's term. 

With Congress bitterly divid- 
ed over health care and congres- 
sional hearings on the 
Whitewater case coming to a 
crest, his advisers say that Mr. 
Clinton probably cannot wait 
much longer before deciding 
whether to invade Haiti and 
roust the Caribbean nation's 
ruling junta. 

The extent to which so much 
at the White House this summer 
is shaping up as a kind of carom 
shot is apparent in the calcula- 
tions of aides about bow a deci- 
sion on Haiti, for one, might 
affect the president’s battle to 
get health care legislation 
through Congress before the 
Aug. 12 recess. 

If Mr. Clin ion ordered a mili- 
tary strike soon, one argument 
goes, it would steal so much 
attention that health care could 
only founder. A dissenting the- 
ory — sometimes offered by the 
same aides — is that success in 
Haiti could so enhance Mr. 
Clinton’s stature that his uphill 
struggle in Congress might be- 
come more like coasting. 

Add to this mix the congres- 
sional hearings on the 
Whitewater matter, which will 
begin next week, and the ago- 
nizing has made for more than a 
little uneasiness. 

“Health care is the one that

we want to get done," a Clinton 
aide said. “Haiti is the one that 


aide said. “Haiti is the one that 
we have to get done. And 
Whitewater — Whitewater is 
inevitable." 

At least for now, officials say, 
questions about how to attack 
each of the problems have been 


compounded by anxiety and 
uncertainty within the White 


uncertainty within the White 
House about what further per- 
sonnel changes will be made by 
Leon E. Panetta. the new chief 
of staff. 

Apart from Mr. Clinton and 
his wife, Hillary Rodham Clin- 
ton, the officials directing the 
day-to-day battles on the major 
fronts have been Mr. Panetta 
and his deputy, Harold M. Ick- 
es, on health care; Lloyd N. 
Cutler, the White House coun- 
sel, and John D. Podesta, the 
staff secretary, on Whitewater; 
and W. Anthony Lake, the na-

tional security adviser, and his 
deputy. Samuel R- Berger, on 
Haiti. 

But the discussions have also 
involved a constellation of oth- 
er officials, some of them in ill- 
defined roles. Several senior of- 
ficials now say that Mr. Panetta 
will seek at least to make more 
precise the responsibilities as- 
signed to senior advisers like 
Thomas F. (Mack) McLarty, 
the former chief of Staff, and 
George Stephanopoulos, a sort 
of troubleshooter without port- 


folio who has been spread thin 
by the proliferation of troubles. 

But even aides to Mr. Clinton 
respond uneasily when asked 
how the White House hopes to 
manage the three competing 
tides. 

“You just do the best you 
can," one senior official said. 

It has been evident since the 
year began that if the White 
House hoped to win approval 
of a health care plan tins au- 
tumn, its first battles on the 
House and Senate floors would 
have to be fought before the 
summer recess. Since March, it 
has also been clear that Repub- 
lican pressures would force con- 
gressional hearings about 
Whitewater onto the midsum- 
mer calendar. 

What has emerged as the 
most unexpected test has been 
the showdown with Haiti. Ad- 
ministration officials insis t that 
Mr. Clinton has not decided 
whether to use force. But few 
say they can envision an alter- 
native to force if the junta re- 
fuses to step down soon. 

The White House has also 
apparently begun an aggressive 
effort to build public and con- 
gressional support for such an 
operation. As Mr. Panetta was 
warning on television that the 
adminis tration could not “al- 
low the status quo to eat us up" 
in Haiti, other senior officials 
were looking back with grim 
satisfaction on a week of televi- 
sion news coverage that focused 
on brutality there. 

“It’s helped us," said one ad- 
ministration official who advo- 
cates an invasion. 

It is events in Haiti and not 
the president's calendar, his ad- 
visers insist, that will determine 
when and whether he will in- 
vade. Similarly, they say they 
are at the mercy of any Repub- 
licans who might seek to use the 
Whitewater hearings for per- 
sonal attacks even at the height 
of the health care debate.

Coatinned from Page 1 


ties present for the debate made it clear 
that they fell the “quality” of the land 
being alloted to the Serbian side was unac- 


ceptable, with most of the country’s natu- 
ral resources, power plants and key com- 


ral resources, power plants and key com- 
munications links awarded to the Mustim- 
Croatian side. 

But they also seemed acutely aware that 
neither President Slobodan Milosevic of 
Serbia, their mentor and their key support- 
er, nor the leaders of the international 


community would tolerate a flat rejection 
of the plan. 

“Everybody wants to say no,” said a 
reporter from the militant Bosnian Serbian 
nationalist stronghold of Banja Luka. 

“The question is how. Some wanted to 
say just no. Others wanted to say yes but 
no. It’s all a game.” 

The basis for giving an ambiguous reply 
was laid right at the start of the parliamen- 
tary session Monday afternoon when sev- 
eral deputies, speaking before the debate 
was dosed to reporters, complained that 


they had no knowledge of the overall peace 
package, particularly of its constitutional 
principles. 

Recognition of the right of Bosnian 
Serbs to form a confederation with Serbia, 
regarded as the motherland, has emerged 
as a key issue for many of the persons 
involved. 

A British envoy who came to Pale on 
Monday night told the Bosnian Serbian 
leadership that its republic would not be 
allowed to secede later to join Serbia in a 
“greater Serbia.’*

TOKYO — For the North 
Koreans, the huge state funeral 

Tuesday for Kim H Sung was a 
chanc e to claim "their leaders 
place m history and to-put their 
tears, and wailing on display. 
But for the outride experts who

North Korea watching, it was 
an encounter with som e t hin g 
they had never witnessed befoie 
— the entry of one of the most, 
reclusive countries in the world 
to the television agp. • • 

. With the death of the hard- 
line Co mmunis t who ruled 
North Korea for nearly five de- 
cades, everyone interested _m 
the country has been watching 
for signs of Will North 

Korea ease its bdlicpsd rheto- 
ric? Will it invite foreign invest- 
ment? Will the xnititaiy take

within tbe Kim family?

neatly kept North Korean capi-

mourning and many of the 
country’s most senior leaders. 

The government has broad- 
cast a limited range of television 
mag es abroad before, but nev- 
er in such abundance and never, 
according to experts, with such 

a profusion of hints and tidbits. 
Everything, from the names on 
the wreaths placed before the' 
bier to die way the film was 
edited, has been scrutinized for 
evidence to support theories on

tics in its war of nerves with the 
outside world. 

For instanc^'one SouthKo- 
rean government official dose 
to the intelligence services 
counted the number of times 
Mr. Kim’s- son and presumed 
successor, Kim. Jong ^ ap- 


peared Tuesday. The number, 
hesaid, was five, . 

The broadcasts baa raerrea 
to the younger. Mr. Kim as head 
of the military, but not yet as 
president or head cf the nixing 
Workers’ Party. That seemed to 
indicate that he had not yet tak- 
en charge; But, the official said, 
the weighty number of appear- 
ances had to be counted as a 
positive sign for the sot’s suc- 
cession. . 

If anyone doubted the impor- 
tance of the job of secretary- 
general of the party, the images 
broadcast of the cortege an- 
swered that question. Draped 
over Mr. Kim’s huge, dark cof- 
fin, which, as it happened, was 
balanced atop what appeared to 
be a blade Ltnoofa house, was 
not the North Korean national 
flag, but the brilliant red flag of 
the party,, with a h amm er and 
sickle in the center. 

A: number of commentators 
noted that the images shown of 
top officials and family mem- 
bers before the bier, before the 
}nng funeral procession had be- 
gan, offered what was regarded 
as a revealing gliinpse into the 
succession straggle 

Last week, when the first im- £ 
ages of the mourners were 
shown, Mr. Kim’s second wife, 
Kim Sung Ae, appeared close to 
TTrm Jong fl, hex stepson. More 
recentiyTbowever, she has been 

edited out of the frames, experts 

claim, suggesting that a poten- 
tial rival for power has been 
. pushed .aside . 

Analysts noted that in one 
series of imag es , a wreath had 
beat set up near the coffin with 
a ribbon proclaiming it a gift 
from the Ministry of Crude Oil 
Industry. Some experts said

IAN ON MOON 

Astronauts Land Craft Safely 9 
are to Walk on Surface Today 


By Al Rosnter Jr. 

CPACE CENTER, Houston, July 20, 1969 
(UPI).— -Mm landed on the moon today. 

Two pioneers from the planet Earth, Ameri- 
can astronauts Neil A. Armstrong ml Edwin E. 
Aldrin, flew their fragile spacecraft to a fright- 
ening but safe touchdown at 2017:40 GMT. 

Soon after the landing, the astronaut* recommended 
that they advance their walk on the lunar surface by 
five hours to start at 0106 GMT- tomorrow. Ground 
central agreed. 

Their landing r e alised die dreams of centuries. For 
the first time men actually r est ed on an alien world. 

The lunar lander, called Eatff, balanced precariously 
on a jet of flame, settled with a. gentle thaump on the 
moon's Sen of TnmqidIBty, near the lunar equator. - 

It op en ed to he a p er f ect descent — though it had 
■ever been done before ' 

The thrusting descent engine kicked up dust as the 
Eagle lending craft h overed briefly before dropping the 
flu* few feet- to the surface. 

"Very smooth touchdown,’' C6L Aldrin reported with 
cool easuahwes shortly after the landing. Mr. Armstrong 
amus e d fcbnseif from further reports, saying: "We’re going 
to he buy fora moment” 

Me. !*» ■*— t—w g nfurrinff piiiTir flut.iiuidlpr'qii a Manet 
ether than, hie own with Ids voice, barely imbed from tdi 
normal, laconic deUvaty. . 

"Contact fight on. Engine off. The Eagle has lauded,” 
he eaid. 

Thus began the cnlnitnatfnn of 'centuries of sum’s 
dreams, eight yean at fantastic effort and the expenditure 
of 9 M blttton. 

‘Quite a lot e/ Roch’ «t Site 

Mr.. Armstrong made a quick description of the touch- 
down scene: saying there were "quite a lot of rocks, and 
boulders” In sight. But ground control could not restrain 
its enthusiasm. 

“Guys, that was. one beautiful lob." the mission con- 
trailer called. 

One of the most critical measurements was the space- 
craft’s tilt on tile surface— a greater list than 12 degrees 
would doom the astronauts, since the ascent stage could not 
properly fire. 

Ground control reported an angle. -of lust over A degrees 
well within take-off capability— and Mr. Armstrong con- 
firmed that measurement. 

Within seconds, ground control was addressing Eagle as 
"tranquillity base.” Ur. Armstrong found time to describe a 
bit of the descent 

He said the automatic guidance system was “taking us 
right Into a football field abe (area) °I craters.** . 

Mr. Armstrong said he took over control manually over 
the rock field "to find a reasonably smooth area."

Thu is the ApoBo-11 primary l anding die on the moon am seen from the hatch of 
the command module and teleeatt back to earth. At the time the craft teas about 
170 mUea above the Sea of Tranquillity be/ore going into Us lunar orbit. 


*Tt looks Hke a collection of just about every variety 
of shapes, angularities, granularities, lust about every variety 
of rocks you can find,” Col. Aldrin reported. 

Col Aldrin said there didn’t seem to be much color, but 
he said some rocks in view “look as though they will have 
some interesting color to them." 

Later, Mr. Armstrong gave man’s first description of 
earth as seen from the surface of the, moon: 

"It's big and bright and beautiful," he said. 

Mr. Armstrong reported the astronauts’ first reaction 
to moon gravity— only one-sixth of that on earth— “is just 
like in an airplane.” He said there was no difficulty in 
adapting to the lower gravity. "We seem used to it already." 


Both he and CoL Aldrin sounded calm and unruffled 
by the first manned l umpin g on the moon. 

Ground control told them: "There are lots of smiling 
faces In this room, all over the world." Mr. Armstrong 
replied: "There are two of them here.” 

For several long minutes as the craft was dscending 
the world seemed to stand still The cool spacemen called 
out their final altitude figures as they dropped toward the 
lunar surface. 

At 220 feet: “Coming down nicely." 

At 75 feet: “Looking good." 

At 30 feet: “Picking up some dost" 


Then finally, at 2017.40 GMT: “Contact light cm. 
Engine off. The Eagle has landed." 

Nearly three hours after their touchdown on the moon, 
CoL Aldrin came on the air with a special message. 

“This is the LM pilot." he said. 

"I’d like to take this opportunity to ask every person 
listening in, whoever and wherever they may be. to pause 
for a moment and contemplate the events of the past few 
hours, and to give thanks In his or her own way." 

Sir. Armstrong told ground control: “WeTl be able to 
begin EVA (moon walk) preparations In a half-hour or so.” 

Meantime, at 2325 GMT. Mr. Armstrong and CoL Aldrin 
were eating their first meal on the moon. 

With the decision made to skip the first on-the-moon 
rest period, the astronauts moved quickly into the difficult, 
sometimes laborious preparations far the moon walk. 

One of these involved placing a filter over the valve 
which will vent oxygen to depressurize the Eagle. This la 
a decontamination device, designed to avoid polluting the 
moon's surface with any organisms the Eagle atmosphere 
may contain. 

Then Mr. Armstrong and Col Aldrin began to don 
their moonwalking back packs — about a 45-minute job, and 
a bard one. 

Mr. Armstrong and CoL Aldrin were scheduled to spend 
about two and one-half hours on tbe moon's surface and 
then return to the lunar module for a rest period. 

No Change in LiflrOff Time 

Space agency officials said they did not expect the 
lift-off of the lunar module from tbe moon to be changed 
from 1755 GMT tomorrow. It will later link up with the 
command module carrying CoL Michael Collins In orbit 
around the moon. 

At the time of the landing the moon was about 238,548 
miles from earth. 

CoL Collins was poised to swoop in and rescue his 
colleagues, had anything gone wrong But now that they 
are on the lunar surface, they are beyond Ms reach. 

“Out tbe window Is a relatively level plain cratered with 
a thoroughly large number of craters of the 5 -to- 50- 
foot variety and some small 20-to-30-feet-hlgh and literally 
thousands of one and two-foot craters around the area," 
Mr. Armstrong said. 

“We see some angular blocks several hundred feet In 
front of us." 

Ironically— after ail the controversy over whether send- 
ing men rather than machines Into space was worthwhile — 
Mr. Armstrong Indicated that the mission might have ended 
In disaster without a man at Eagle's controls. 

He said he had to “take over manually and fly It over 
the rock area” toward which the guidance system was point- 
ing the craft The automatic system was bringing them 
straight down into a crater, which was surrounded “for about 
one or two crater diameters" with Jagged boulders. 

Mr. Arm st r o ng said he flew Eagle to a “relatively good 
area" and brought it down In a swirl of dust. 

The rock samples the astronauts will collect is one of

MOSCOW, July -to (UPI>.— 
The Russians announced today 
that their Luz>»45 spacecraft

Berlusconi’s Betrayal 


Only months ago, SDvio Berlusconi rode 


to power on public disgust with Italy's 
bribery-ridden network of politicians and 
businessmen. Last Wednesday, he out- 
raged the country with a decree that did 
the accused wrongdoers a huge favor. He 
had asked Italians to trust him as the only 
person running for high public office who 
was not tainted by the scandal that fol- 
lowed the “dean hands" anti-corruption 
investigation — and they did. Now, even 
as he talks of amending the decree, many 
are having second thoughts. 

Italians saw the magistrates who con- 
ducted the Investigation as the only moral 
players in Italy's grimy political culture. 
Prime Minister Berlusconi has abruptly 
cast off his campaign image as a tribune of 
clean government and seeks to limit their 
investigations into past political sleaze. 

Until last Wednesday, unease about the 
new government had focused on Mr. Ber- 
lusconi's coalition partners: the National 
Alliance, descended from Mussolini's Fas- 
cist Party, and the Northern League, 
which hopes to undo I talian unification. 
Now he has shifted misgivings from his 
allies to himself. His decree detonated 
street protests and scathing editorials. The 
a dmir ed magis trates have requested reas- 
signment Mr. Berlusconi’s coalition part- 
ners have taken issue with him. 

Pretrial detention, rescinded by Mr. 
Berlusconi’s decree, is obnoxious to civil 
libertarians and rare in the United States 
for those who can afford b ail. But it has 
bom normal legal practice in Italy and 
became a valuable tool for preventing 
suspects in the political corruption scan- 
dal from covering their tracks. It should 
not be selectively e limina ted as a special 


favor to the powerful and well connected. 

Potential beneficiaries of last Wednes- 
day's decree, which also barred publishing 
the names of corruption suspects, indude 
Mr. Berlusconi’s own brother, Paolo, who 
faces trial later this year, and his old politi- 
cal patron, former Prime Minister Bettmo 
Crajri, now evading the reach of Italian 
authorities in Tunisia. 

The “dean hands” investigation was the 
first real challenge to the permanent gov- 
erning coalition of Christian Democrats, 
Socialists and smaller parties that ran Italy 
for their own benefit throughout the Cold 
War. The prosecutions reawakened public 
idealism and promised better government. 
But instead of the morally renewed “Sec- 
ond Republic" that Mr. Berlusconi pro- 
mised voters last March, he now offers a 
caricature of the old regime, in which 
power is concentrated in one person's 
bands rather than in a broadly represen- 
tative political class. 

Mr. Berlusconi, under pressure from his 
coalition partners, suggested on Monday 
that he might yield to critics and alter the 
language of the decree. It is to the credit of 
the Northern League and the National 
Allian ce that they resisted curbing the 
prosecutors. These parties deserve to be 
judged as much by their present actions as 
by their past associations. 

What is important is not which politi- 
cians or parties end up on top in Rome. 
The dangerous dement to this crisis is that 
it is likely to produce further disillusion- 
ment with all elected politicians. It is in 
such disillusionment with democracy, not 
the heritage of the National Alliance, that 
the real danger of a fascist revival lies.

Export controls require a balance be- 
tween two imperative American interests. 
The purpose is to prevent goods of mili- 
tary value from getting into the wrong 
hands abroad. Loosening the controls in- 
creases the risk. Tightening them interferes 
with economic growth by making it harder 
to sell goods abroad, especially in the 
high-technology sectors where getting to 
the market fast is essential. Two bills 
coming to the floor of the House of Rep- 
resentatives would rewrite the rules for 
exporting what the experts call dual-use 
items, which can be used for either mili- 
tary or peaceful purposes. Machine tools 
are an example. So are chemicals. 

The bills represent the two sides of the 
debate. The Foreign Affairs Committee's 
bill is based on the argument that the Cold 
War is over and in any case advanced 
technology is no longer an American mo- 
nopoly; effective controls have to be coop- 
erative, with a free How except to the 
renegade countries that do not respect the 
international rules. The Armed Services 
Committee’s bill reflects the opposite view 
that while the Soviet Union may have 
vanished, America still has other adversar- 
ies, and some have nuclear ambitions; and 
while most governments may have good 
intentions, few have sufficiently reliable 
export controls of their own to prevent 
transshipment of American technology 


to the renegade and terrorist countries. 

The House might keep two criteria in 
min d. Because most products are made in 
more than one place, controlling Ameri- 
can exports alone will not suffice to pro- 
tect American security, legislation needs 
to encourage international cooperation. 
Second, the process of making decisions 
inside the executive branch is crucial. At 
present, when one agency disagrees with 
another the application for an export 
license can fail indefinitely into limbo 
while the frustrated exporters watch their 
foreign customers turn to other suppliers. 

Both hQls would pul time limits on the 
decision process, but the Foreign Affairs 
Committee’s bill does it more simply. 

Congress hates this subject, with its 
unfathomable technical issues and its 
huge commercial stakes. There is always 
a strong temptation to find ways to kill or 
postpone export controls bills. But Amer- 
ican exports are now approaching half a 
trillion dollars' worth of goods a year, 
and the procedures that were adequate in 
the past are becoming unmanageably 
cumbersome and costly. The Foreign Af- 
fairs Committee's bill is, in general, pre- 
ferable. But even the most hesitant mem- 
ber of the House can take heart, for either 
of these bills would be preferable to the 
present obsolete law.

Gluttony + Sloth = Fat 


America is the home of a dessert called 
Death by Chocolate. It is the home of the 
quarter-pounder with a side of fries, of 
pastrami on iye. of chile rdlenos and na- 
chos, of barbecue, glazed doughnuts and 
fetiucini Alfredo. It is a country in which 
touch-tone will bring the stay-at-home piz- 
za with everything within minutes; the 
country whose television ads for broiling 
T-bones or sizzling fried shrimp could 
have swayed Saint Jerome. It is a country 
whose restaurants sing with “I really 
shouldn’t, but ... ” and “Go ahead, you 
deserve it.” America is a land of couch 
potatoes, where labor-saving devices do 
the physical work and computer games 
replace active sports. Is it any wonder 
that America is also a country of danger- 
ously overweight people? 

According to a recent study by the Na- 
tional Center for Health Statistics, the 
number of adults characterized as over- 
weigh l in the United States has jumped to 
an astonishing one-third of the popula- 
tion. “Overweight’’ in this case means be- 
ing about 20 percent or more above a 
person’s desirable weight. Since the figures 
for “desirable weight” have moved up- 
ward in the last decade or so, total pound- 
age — even at 20 percent over — may be 
considerable. So are the attendant health 
risks. Excess weight has been linked to 
cardiovascular disease, hypertension, 
adult-onset diabetes and some forms or 
cancer, among other diseases. 

Once, when work and school and the 
grocery store were a two-mile hike away, 
Americans could afford the calories they 
consume. But not now, not when millions 
spend four or five hours a day in front of 


a television set — along with a bag of 
chips, a bowl of buttered popcorn and a 
six-pack — and there is a car or two in 
every driveway. “There is no commitment 
to obesity as a public health problem,” 
said Dr. William Dietz, director of clinical 
nutrition at the New En glan d Medical 
Center in Boston. “We’ve ignored it, and 
blamed it on gluttony and sloth.” 

If one definition of a public health pro- 
blem js its cost to the nation, then obeaty 
qualifies. According to a study done by 
Dr. Graham A. Colditz, who teaches at 
Harvard Medical School, it cost America 
an estimated S68.8 billion in 1990. 

But what is wrong with blaming it on 
gluttony and sloth? True, some unfortu- 
nate overweight people have an underly- 
ing physical or genetic problem. But for 
most Americans the problem is with two 
of the seven deadly sins. 

Losing weight is a desperately diffi- 
cult business. Preventing gain is not. 
Consumer information is everywhere, 
and there can be few adults who truly 
believe that hot dogs, fries, a soda and a 
couple of Twinkles make a good lunch. 
But they eat them anyway. 

As more and more Americans became 
educated to the risks of smoking, so 
more and more gave up the habit. Now 
it appears that Americans need an inten- 
sive education in the risks of stuffing 
themselves and failing to exercise. Giv- 
en the seductiveness of chocolate and 
cheese, the conch and the car, that habit 
will be hard to break. But if an ounce of 
prevention can obviate a pound of fat, it 
is well worth the struggle,

Europe’s Core May Have to Blaze the Union’s Trail 


B RUSSELS — When John Major not 
only single-handedly vetoed the 
choice of Britain’s II fellow member 
stales for president of the European Com- 
mission but then triumphantly secured the 
appointment of a less federal politician, 
his Tory supporters cheered him to the 
echo. When the cheers died away, he 
would have been wise to look up Robert 
Southey’s “The Battle of Blenheim." 

And everybody praised the Duke 
Who such a fight did win. 

But what good came of it at last? 

Quoth little Peterkin. 

Why that I cannot tell, said he. 

But ’ twas a famous victory. 

Likewise, Prime Minister Major's vic- 
tory is a hollow one. 

When be next has a problem on which 
be needs the help of his European Union 
colleagues, he will find the leaders of 
France, Germany and Belgium (whose 
candidate he blocked) lying in wait with 
a large hatchet 

The next president of the Commission, 
assuming that the European Parliament 
will not try to block the appointment, will 
be a Luxembourger. As such he win fed 
himself far closer, on grounds of geogra- 
phy and history, to the two great powers 
on his borders than to the odd man out 
across the Channel, particularly because 
it has recently been spumed in favor of 
Germany by President Bill Clinton. A 
French-German- European Commission 


By Roy Denman 

axis will not be a great deal for Mr. Major. 

The impression given by British gov- 
ernment sources is that Monsieur Jac- 
ques Santer, the Luxanbourger, is an 
amiable poodle. His record shows that he - 
is noL He might conceivably think of 
demonstrating this sharply to Mr. Major. 

The job of Commission president was 
one of a wider portfolio of international 
jobs, including that of secretary-general 
of the OECD. The British had a presti- 
gious candidate. He now has no hope. 

There are two wider considerations. 

The affair has once again brought 
home to Britain's European partners 
(particularly after the British defeat in 
March on the blocking minority issue) 
the extraordinary degree of misunder- 
standing in Britain of European issues. 

The British, for example, talk of a 
federation as a centralized tyranny. TeU 
that to a Bavarian and he mil burst out 
laughing — pausing perhaps to ask when 
the British, as the most centralized re- 
gime in Europe, plan to give Scotland 
and Wales the decree of autonomy en- 
joyed by the German Lander. 

Again, to make out that the Belgian 
prime minister is a raving federalist is 
quite dotty. Anyone who has spent any 
time in the country knows that it is so 
decentralized as barely to remain together. 


It is as if the British look at the rest of 
Europe in a huge distorting mirror, like 
the ones to be found in tlx fairgrounds of 
old, which showed anyone peering into it 
as a monster or a hobgoblin. 

' The rcasOT for this is not just traditkinal 
British insularity. It is partly a lack of 
leadership from a divided, unpopular gov- 
ernment, wdl past its shelf life. Partly the 
antics of noisy Toy Europhobes in Pariia- 
ment who know as much about Continen- 
tal Europe as they do about Mongolia. 

And it is partly the British press, a. 
large part of which — the leading tabloid, 
and 60 percent of the broadsheets' — is 
owned by two nonresident foreigners 
who loathe Europe and ensure that their 
papers give it the same treatment as 
Pravda used .to give the United States at 
the height of the Cold War. 

The second wider consdfflation relates 
to what is now going to happen. The 
great achievements of the Union over 
nearly 50 yean had to be spearheaded by 
the Commission. The gnife market, the 
Sin gle Act, the successful negotiations 
for entry of 10 new members, successful 
participation in three world trade negoti- 
ations, the launching of the drive for 
economic and monetary umon — none 
of that would have happened without 
Commission leadership. But a different 
ball game is now about to start. 

The next leap foiWard will not depend 
essentially on the Commission. It win 


come some time afta * e «“»*«{ 
German elections this Octobcrand the 
^Xpnsdential election natM* 
For a second conference (after Maas- 
tricht) on the future o^amzation of the 

Union is due to be held m 1996. 

It shapes up as a bust, became die 
severaHrambere want quite different 
rhmro Britain wants nothing more than 
afrStrade area. Some others cannot ytt 
afford a common currency. It would 
hardly be sensible to expect much from a 
group of aeronautical engineers design- 
Sga plane, when one group ***** ™ 
nothing more than a gbder while the rest 
axe working on a jet fight®. 

So there seems much to be said for the 
proposal, put forward by the French 
Shuster for European affairs in May, 
that a hard core of European Union 
states should commit themselves in 1996 
to cany oat all its policies, not just those 
'that smt individual members. Thiscould 
mean early creation of an economic and 
political union of, say, six countries. 

It would be a step as momentous as the 
Treaty of Rome in 1957. Initially it 
would be divisive, just as in 1957. But the 
integration of Europe is not going to 
stand still, and there are moments m 
history when the only way forward is for 
those who 0 ^ to blaze the trail; in tune 
the others will catch up. Perhaps, after a 
change of government, even the British.

The Syria Question: Better a Peace With 'the Devil You Know’? 


N ICOSIA — King Hussein’s 
historic decision to meet 
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 
Washington next Monday to has- 
ten a Jordan- Israel peace treaty 
r anks with the boldest moves he 
has made in his 42 years of rule. 

Both that impending meeting 
and the passing of North Korea's 
Kim II Sung raise urgent questions 
for Syria's President Hafez Assad. 

King Hussein’s decision to 
break with his previous cautious 
policy of waiting for more pro- 
gress toward Syria-lsrad peace, 
partly out of respect for President 
Assad’s wishes, was keenly felt in 
Damascus, just ending a week of 
national mourning for Kim II 
Song. The pariah North Korean 
state, since the breakup of the ex- 
Soviet Union, has become Syria's 
main arms supplier. 

While King Hussein. Mr. Ra- 
bin and their peace teams meet in 
Washington and on the Israel- 
Jordan border, U.S. Secretary of 
State Warren Christopher — now 
armed with an unprecedented 
public recognition by the Israeli 
foreign minister, Shimon Peres, 
of Syria’s sovereignty over the 
Israeli-occupied Golan Heights 
— renews his efforts in Jerusa- 
lem and Damascus on the far 


By John K. Cooley 


tougher issue of Syria-lsrad peace. 

It is not difficult to imagine the 
inured emotions of King Hussein. 
Both his grandfather, King Ab- 
dallah, and President Sadat of 
Egypt were assassinated by Arab 
extremists for talking peace with 
Israel. King Hussein has sought, 
and apparently gained, assur- 
ances from President Bill Clin ton 
that the United States will forgive 
Jordan's debt and help to mod- 
ernize its armed forces. The king, 
at 59 the survivor of many plots, 
was never one to let his reason be 
overpowered by fear. 

For Mr. Assad, the stakes are 
equally high. The Syrian president 
lacks the firm domestic base that 
King Hussein has fashioned in 
Jordan. Although neither man is in 
the best of health, Mr. Assad has 
failed to build democratic-based 
institutions and has not estab- 
lished a clear line of succession. 

In North Korea, as Syrians ob- 
served. a far more rigid dictator- 
ship coped with its succession 
problem by designating Kira D 
Sung's son, Kim Jong II, as the 
new “Great Leader.” This is un- 
likely to work in Syria. A car 
accident in January killed the 


presidents much-loved son and 
presumed hear, Basil, who was 32. 

His father had made Basil, a 
popular army major mid athlete, 
the head of a kind of private intel- 
ligence service. Many Syrians 
hoped he would become a fair- 
minded bead of state who might 
even reform and modernize Syr- 
ia’s sclerotic police-state system. 

What Baal was doing before 
his fatal car crash was compiling 
a sort of data bank on corruption 
among the competing Syrian 
business and political elites. 

After BasiPs death, his father 
placed his oldest surviving son, 
29-year-old Bashar, in charge of 
sane of the same daia-gathering 
activity. This leads some Syrians 
to believe that Bashar, who had 
been a captain in the army medi- 
cal corps, is now in line to suc- 
ceed his father. 

Syria’s 1973 constitution poses, 
at least on paper, a problem for 
any of Mr. Assad’s four surviving 
children to succeed him; It re- 
quires a president to be at least 
40 years old. 

Other possible successors in- 
dude his younger brother Rifaat, 
shrewd and ambitions but unpop- 


ular after a bid for power follow- 
ing the president’s 1983 Alness; 
Vice President Abdel Halim 
Khaddam, a .foreign affairs ex- 
pert; and several senior military 
men who, unlike Mr. Khaddam, 
belong to the ruling but minority 
Alawite sect of Islam. 

What Israeli and U.S. analysts 
now must ponder is whether this 
confused situation, coupled with 
Mr. Assad’s poor health, makes 
haste imperative in reaching, a 
Syria-lsrad peace treaty. 

Mr. Assad is reputed to be a 
tough negotiator but a man of Ins 
word. Because he is also an iron 
figure of charisma and stability in 
a traditionally unstable nation, 
his prestige would uphold any 
peace treaty he signed with Israel 
until long after bos death. 

But after the successful signing 
of the PLO -Israel accord in 
Washington in September, an ac- 
cord which Mr. Assad believes 
will weaken Syria, and the com- 
mon Arab front, some diffeent 
views were expressed in load. 

“Let Assad stew for a while, 
while we settle with the Palestin- 
ians and Jordan first,” said, in 
effect, some s upp or te r s of Prime 
Minister Yitzhak Rabin. The con- 
cept ■ — perhaps since abandoned 


by Israeli leaders, now that For- - 
eign Minister Peres has recog- . 
razed Syrian sovereignty over the 
.Golan Heights — implied a kind 
of peacetime Israeli-Palestinian- 
Jordanian economic federation, - 
leaving Syria ouL 
A counterargument (heard in 
.Washington more during the Bush 
administration than it is today) is 
that Mr. Assad's health has de- 
clined since his 1983 heart attack, , 
and that it would be better to sign . 
tpeace “with the devil you know.” 

Israel and Secretary of State ! 
Christopher face an awesome 
task. Mb’. Assad wants the Golan 
Heights returned soon. The Ra- • 
bin gove rnm ent demands that 
Syria, first sign a full peace, with '. 
open borders, an Israeli Embassy - 
in Damascus and full trade. The . 
Israelis so far have signaled only a . 
partial military withdrawaL 
Both the Israeli and the Syrian ! 
peoples have been conditioned to 
view the other as an implacable , 
enemy. To bridge the chasm will 
take the most imaginative and en- 
ergetic statecraft possible.

“The end of the day is ap-

State Strobe Talbott told a OSIN 
audience on Saturday. He said he 
hoped that the military leaders 
who have run Haiti since Father 
Aristide's ouster in a 1991 coup 
would step down voluntarily, but 
he added: “We can’t wait forever."

he questioned the appropriate-

Walter E Faun troy used to. The 
former congressman from the Dis- 
trict of Columbia and chairman 
for 15 years of a bipartisan con- 
gressional task force on Haiti says 
the Clinton adminis tration has 
pretty much ran out of options. 
“We’re down to two choices,” he 
tokl me in an interview. “Either we 
go in, or we walk away." 

The liberal Democrat, Baptist 
minister and consultant on inter- 
national finance and trade said 
his reluctant choice was to go in. 

It is a position he does not like 
being in. He has been pushing for 
a negotiated settlement of Haiti's 


governmental crisis since the be-

bandwagon for economic sanc-

He still thinks he was right, and 
not merely because of ins nonvio-

tenant of Martin Luther King Jr. 

He believes that the reason Bill 
Clinton, and George Bush before 
him, could not find a way out of 
the Haitian mess is that they did 
not know enough. “Knowledge is 
power. If they had had more 
knowledge about Haiti, its people 
and its history, they would have 
had the power to resolve the situ- 
ation without resort to violence." 

Did Mr. Faun troy have that 
knowledge?

Don’t Go for the Burma Junta’s Bait 


W ASHINGTON — The re- 
port last week that Bur- 
ma's military rulers have made a 
new overture to Washington 
may seem like good news. Lift 
the U.S. arms embargo, they of- 
fered. and the army will defeat 
Khun Sa, the drug trafficker 
who controls the mountainous 
Shan state, where much of the 
country's opium is grown. 

Burma produces more than 
half the world's opium, the raw 
material for making heroin. With 
cheap, high-quality heroin now 
available in many American cit- 
ies — and fears that a new her- 
oin epidemic may be looming — 
supplying Burma with the heli- 
copters and weapons it needs to 
fight the drug war can sound 
like a smart move. 

But cooperating with the mil- 
itary junta, which calls itself the 
State Law and Order Restora- 
tion Council, will not solve 
America’s drag problem but will 
further strengthen one of the 
world's most repressive regimes. 

The council, which took pow- 
er in 1988, has a long record cf 
human rights violations. It has 
forcibly resettled ethnic minor- 
ities, imprisoned political oppo- 
nents without tnal and killed 
thousands who protested the re- 
gime's suppression of the 1990 
election results. 

The leader of the democracy 
movement, the Nobel laureate 
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, whose 
party won the election by a 
landslide, is beginning her sixth 
year under house arrest. 


By Mathea Falco 


America has led the inter- 
national effort to end rights 
abases in Burma — cutting off 
economic assistance and anti- 
narcotics support, imposing an 
arms embargo, suspending trad- 
ing privileges and opposing 
World Bank and other multilat- 
eral loans. So far these tactics 
have not produced remits. 

The U.S. Congress should 
pass a pending resolution for 
tighter economic sanctions and 
for the unconditional release of 
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. 

But even if Burma's human 
rights record were less egre- 
gious, resuming UJS. anti-nar- 
cotics assistance would not be a 
good use of American tax dol- 
lars. Burma has never success- 
fully asserted authority over 
the mountainous regions where 
drug lords Eke Khun Sa oper- 
ate with tittle interference and 
various ethnic insurgents 
struggle for independence. 

Since the State Law and Or- 
der Restoration Council took 
over, opium production has 
doubled, making Burma the 
world’s largest supplier. 

Precise numbers are hard to 
come by, but U.S. officials esti- 
mate that Americans consume 6 
percent of the work's heroin — 
about 20 tons a year out of a 
total of 350 tons. Almost two- 
thuds of the heroin sold in the 
United Sfcues comes from South- 
east Asia, primarily Burma. Ac- 


cording to tbc State Department, 
Burmese opium production in 
1993 exceeded 2^00 tons — the 
equivalent of about 250 tons of 
heroin, enough to supply Ameri- 
can demand 10 times over. 

As the United Stales has 
learned from earlier skirmishes 
in the “war on drugs," like 
breaking the notorious French- 
Turkish connection in the 
1970s, other heroinprochioers 
closer to home will fill whatever 

temporary shortages occur. 

Mexico, which supplanted 
Turkey as the major heroin 
source of the United States in 
the 1980s, and Colombia, a new 
supplier, both have the capacity 
to meet the American demand. 

So even if the United States 
made a dent in Burma’s opium 
production, that would haw lit- 
tle impact on the availability of 
heroin in the United States. 

According to a poll in Febru- 
ary 1994 by Peter D. Hart Re- 
search Associates, Americans 
would rather provide funds for 
community drug prevention, 
treatment and enforcement pro- 
grams than for foreign eradica- 
tion and interdiction efforts. 
They know that the answers to 
America’s drug problems lie at 
home, not in the hands of Bur- 
ma's military dictators.

told me. “The last person to go 
wanting for food or medicine

“I knew that an embargo would 
frustrate what our task force had 
been doing — seeking to attract 
labor-intensive industry to the is- 
land as a way of dealing with the 
energetic bat largely illiterate pop- 
ulation. It was predictable that an 
embargo would drive those busi- 
nesses into the eager arms of 
places like the Dominican Repub- 
lic and Honduras and Costa Rica. 

“We spent a lot of years trying 
to help Haiti recover from a 
French-led land scheme that had 
pretty much deforested the place: 
We launched a reforestation pro- 
gram to keep the soil from wash- 
ing into the sea. Well, the first 
result of the embargo was an oil 
shortage, which meant that peo- 
ple began cutting down the trees 
to make charcoal.” 

There were subtler things, too. 
that a greater U.S. knowledge of 
Haiti might have accomplished, 
Mr. Faun troy believes. 

The ouster of Jean-Claude 
(Baby Doc) Duvatier in 1986 in- 
volved not just pressure of the 
sort that the din ton administra- 
tion is applying to the present 
military leaders but also the de-

— both those on the right, with 
their penchant for violence, and 
those on the left, who wanted 


nothing less than the complete 
levefing of the society. 

“It also split the military, so 
(hat centrist military leaders 
could come to the fore and help 
put together a constitution with 
checks and balances — a sharp 
break with Haiti's history” 

The last chance for a resump- . 
tion of that policy — and of an 
effort by the present ambassador, 
William Swing, to cultivate mem- 
bers of the Haitian parliament in 
.order to work out a process for • 
Father Aristide's eventual return 
— was scuttled a year agp when ' 
Father Aristide refused to abide 
by a resolution reached by a mul- 
tiparty conference in Miami, Mr. 
Fauntroy believes. 

Now, he said, (he choices are to 
go in or walk away. And each 
option has its problems. 

Going in would give the invad- 
ers control, but it would saddle 
than with the responsibility of 
running Haiti for a decade or 
longer — hot merely to maintain 
the peace but to resume the very 4 
efforts that Mr. Faun troy’s task 
force started years ago. “Con- 
quest is easy; occapaticm is hard." 

But if America does not go in. 
he says, the thugs will stay in 
charge of what would surely be an 
outlaw territory and a transship- 
ment point for UJ5.-bound nar- 
cotics. And worse: The immigra- 
tion problem that Has driven the 
Clint o n administration to the 
brink would only grow worse. 

“It's in onr national interest to 
stop this outflow,” he concludes. 
“We’ve got to go in.”

Tresckow said, “The attentat must succeed, 
coute que cotae. It is no longer a matter of its 
practicality, but a matter of demonstrating tc 
the world and before history that the resistance 
movement dared the decisive gamble Beside 
tnatevaything else is a matter of indifference." 

The bomb plot did not succeed in its imme- 
maie objective. Hitler survived to witness the 
deaths of all those who had planned and 
executed it, some of whom died in great ago- 
ny, hanging from butchers’ books in PlOtzen- 
see Prison in Berlin. But the demonstration 
that General Tresckow had in si s ted on was 
made, and if the shadow of Hitler still hang* 
over Germany, it is lightened by the memory 
of brave men and women who gave their lives 
to put an end to his cruelties.

for refusing to assist it. She points out that in 
June 1942, Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden 
was incredulous when approached on the sub- 
ject, taking the position that until. Hitler's 
Goman enemies gave public proof of their 
feelings, by taking some positive action, they 
deserved no credence. 

When Locos P. Lochner, the longtime Ber- 
lin bureau chief of The Associated Press, had 
tried eariier to convey a message from the 
resistance to Franklin Roosevelt, he was ad- 
vised by the White House that this would be 
•highly embarrass i ng to the president 

These incidents are perhaps more under- 
standable than Countess DOnhoff is prepared 
to admit Once the war had begun, the time 
was past when any 'Western leader was willing 
to appear to be treating with Germans of any 
description, and by the early ’40s to do so 
would have flown in the face of the doctrine of 
unconditional surrender, declared at Casa- 
blanca, and was certain to inflame the suspi- 
cions of the Soviet government

memory seems brighter than ever. This year . sibiHty of that had been before war bn 
has already seen the publication of several If at the time of the Sudeten crisis in Septera- 
new books about the resistance, including ber 1938, the Western powers had let it be 
most recently, one by the senior editor of the known that they would resist by force erf arms 
'daily Frankfurter AHgemrine Zeitung, the any attempt by Hitler to cany out his aggres- 


sive intentions against Czechoslovakia, they 
would have done a great deal to validate the 
German resistance movement. Had Hitler 
then tried to go to war, the generals could 
have put into eflect the plan they had demised 
to arrest him, and it is possible that they 
would have received public support. Instead, 
Neville Chamberlain went to Berchtesgaden 
and then to Munich. 

After the outbreak of hostilities, there was 
nothing practical that the Western powers, 
with their own backs to the wall, could have 
done. The resistance leaders were left to their 
own devices, which were scant They could 
not think of trying to build a mass movement 
against the Nazis in a country under the 
control of the secret police, who ruthlessly 
stamped out any sign of oppositional activity. 

They bad to operate through individual 
groups of intellectuals, civil servants, Social- 
ists, diplomats and soldieis, which were large- 
ly uncoordinated and rarely fully informed 
about what other groups were doing. 

Countess Ddnhoff tells us that General 
Tresckow and Hans Osier, leading figures in 
the military conspiracy, never saw or spoke to 
each other but communicated through inter- 
. mediaries, and that she herself was on friendly 
terms with the ambassador Ulrich von Hassell 
and corresponded with him regularly but nev- 
er knew that be was, like her, working for the 
same cause. Such secrecy was necessary, but it 
made for inefficiency and mistakes, and it is 
not surprising that, in the end, the attempt 
against Hitler’s life was botched. 

What would have happened if the bomb 
plot actually killed Hitler? One can only 
guess. If the conspirators had succeeded in 
winning control over the whole of the armed 


forces and the state administration and had 
been able to immobilize the SS and the secret 
police — and this is by no means a foregone 
conclusion — they could have stopped the 
killing in the camps and saved millions of 
lives, since most of ihe deaths there took place 
after September 1 944. 

There is little likelihood, however, that their 
action would have changed the nature of the 
peace imposed upon Germany by the Allies. 
The country would in all likelihood have been 
partitioned' and occupied as it was after 1945. 
The only difference would have been that this 
would have been blamed by many Germans 
upon the resistance rather than upon Hitler. 

In consequence, the nature of West Ger- 
man politics would probably have been mark- 
edly different than it turned out to be, and 

E rogress toward democracy much more prob- 
maticaL Resistance leaders like General 
Ludwig Beck and Karl Friedrich Goerdeler 
were hopelessly old-fashioned in their politi- 
cal views and more inclined to monarchy than 
to democracy. Their contribution to postwar 

S )liucs could only have been provocative and 
visive. Neonazism almost certainly would 
have become a strong political force, and 
communism a persistent one. In all probabili- 
ty, the forces that destroyed the Weimar Re- 
public would have resurfaced. 

But this is all speculation. What history tells 
us is that in July 1944 the forces of resistance 
to Hitler made their desperate gamble and 
lost, but that in doing so they redeemed the 
past and built a bridge to the future.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Rushdie and Nasrin 

Regarding the editorial “ 'Murder Is 
Murder ■” and “Dear Tastima, It Is Not 
You Who Has Dane Wr 
Jufy 15 ) by Salman 

The writings of Taslima Nasrin of 
Bangladesh, like those of Salman > 
Rushdie, are the product of poor 
taste. But, of course, the controversy 
has Httle to do with taste and even 
less to do with accountability, sensi- 
bility or sensitivity. At issue is free- 
dom of expression. 

In Britain, the government has 
condemned the call by Iranian reli- 
gious leaders for Mr. Rushdie’s 
death and protested the intended 
infringement of its sovereignty. In 
Bangladesh, the government has 
stopped short of bringing criminal 
charges against those who pose a 
threat to Ms. Nasrin’s life. Democ- 
racy’s three pillars — a free press, 
the rule of law and respect for hu- 
man rights — are as yet too bail in 
Bangladesh to withstand the test of 
^debate and dissent 
* Islam is not at issue nor, for that 
matter, is secularism. Islam is gener- 
ally taught very badly and often 
quite harshly in Bangladesh and 
South Asia as a whole. Why else do 
we have our Nasrins and Rushdies? 
And how eke to expla in the secular- 
ism they profess with such elo- 
quence ana aridity except to escape 
the man-made fanatical face of a 
beautiful faith? 

The obvious common ground be- 
tween the two. as manifested in their 
writings, is a shared hatred of the 
mullahs and a distorted vision of 
Islam. In a sense, both are “Mid- 
night’s Children,’’ rootless products . 
of our time, whose outrageous blas- 
phemies drew applause and anger, 
respectively, among two still deeply 
divided cultures. 

Like Mr. Rushdie; Ms. Nasrin.fi- 
nally succeeded in offending tbs 
community to which she belongs. Bui 


no one ought to deny hear or anyone 
else freedom of expression.

In its July 15 editorial. The Wash-

has generally been viewed as ha- 
ving ... a moderate government.” 
This comes as a surprise to those of 
US who follow Ban gladesh politics in 
its civilian and mSitaiy incarnations. 

From independence on, the Ban- 
gladesh government and govern- 
ment-backed vigilantes have carried 
out military attacks against the non- 
Islamic minorities of the Chittagong 
Hill Tracts. Buddhist temples have 
been deliberately burned and monks 
targeted. A large number of people 
from the Hill Tracts have-had to flee 
to northeast India, where they lead a 
fragile existence in camps. The land 
left vacant is then filled with land- 
less farmers from the Bangladesh 
phinx Weapons are given out in- 
discriminately to the new settlers, 
some of whom have terrorized the 
indigenous population. Efforts are 
made to convert the Hill Tracts 
people to Islam. 

Now Saudi money is reputedly be- 
mg used in the plains to hire unem- 
ployed people to attack Tastima Nas- 
rin. The current Bangladesh govern- 
ment is weak and unwilling to act, for 
fear of losing Arab revenue. But 
weakness is not moderation.

No Freedom by Force 

Regarding “Haiti: Cautionary 
Lessons From an Earlier Invasion” 
(Opinion, Jufy 12) by Httgh de Santis 
and Kenneth J. Dillon: 

To add (me thought to this excel- 
lent historical review: You can force 
a free election on some military gov- 
ernments, but you cannot make 
them accept the result unless you 
have at least equal military power 
to enforce them. 

As many pseudo-democracies in 
all parts of the world show, you 


cannot implant a Western concept 
of democracy and majority rule 
from the outside. Fach people must 
grow its own style of government in 
situ for it to take roots. If the United 
States wanted to support “freely 
elected” majorities in all parts of the 
world, it would have to send troops 
to Rwanda and fight for the Hutus.

The “United Nations peace prize"

phoufit-Boigoy Peace Prize was creat- 
ed in 1989 at the initiative of 120

Bosnia: A Longer View 

Roger Cohen, reporting on the 
proposed Bosnian settlement, im- 
plies that it would be immoral to 
allow the Bosnian Serbs to retain 
control of “several towns with ma- 
jority Muslim populations before 
the war” (“Map of Bosnia: * Moral 
Bridge’ Is Abandoned," July 7). 

Many of these towns, however, 
once had majority Serb populations. 
The Serbs became a minority only 
when, daring World War LI, the 
Croat Ustashe and their Muslim al- 
lies brutally exterminated 700,000 
Serbian civilians in the Nazi-backed 
independent state of Croatia (which 
incorporated most of Bosnia). 

The article recalls the expulsion of 
Muslims from Serbian territory but 


ignores the expulsion of thousands of 
Serbs from areas controlled by 
Croats and Muslims. For example, 
the 24,000 Serbs of Mostar were driv- 
en out or killed by Croats and Mus- 
lims in 1992. To suggest that Bosnian 
Muslims have a moral claim to terri- 
tory while ignoring legitimate Bosni- 
an Serbian claims is unfair.

The Resistance Is Honored 
Rather Late in the Day 

By Donald Koblitz 


B ERLIN — This Wednesday they 
will celebrate tbe attempted as- 
sassination of a German chancellor. 
The celebrants are not tbe Red 
Army Faction or Middle East ter- 
rorists but the entire German politi- 
cal establishment, and they will be 
honoring the 50th anniversary of the 
attempted assassination of Chancel- 
lor Adolf Hitler on July 20, 1944. 

It may seem ironic that a failed 
attempt at high treason by a group of 
reactionary German aristocrats is a 


MEANWHILE 


significant thread holding together 
the dignity of a proud nation. But the 
Germans want more than a positive 
economic balance sheet and a monot- 
onous siring of democratic elections. 
They need a history to be proud of. 

The 1944 plot was doomed by 
Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg’s 
failure to kill the Fuhrer, his fellow 
conspirators' lack of ardor in round- 
ing up Gestapo and pro-Nazi offi- 
cers, and the equivocation of key 
Wehrmacht generals. 

Colonel Scauf fen berg was quickly 
executed, along with half a dozen 
fellow conspirators. Other men lived 
to be humiliated at show trials be- 
fore the infamous Volksgerichthof, 
the People’s Court, and then were 
strung up with piano wire and 
filmed in their death agonies for the 
Fuhrer’s pleasure. Hitler's most ef- 
fective general, Erwin Rommel, was 
forced to take poison. 

Had Colonel Stauffen berg’s little 
band succeeded, they would have 
changed history. Countless lives 
would have been spared. The Sovi- 
ets would not have occupied all of 
Eastern Europe. The British Empire 
might have survived a while longer. 

The count, like most of his fellow 
conspirators, was a conservative of- 
ficer from the Prussian aristocracy 
who came rather late to the German 
opposition. Only when the army 
could see tbe tide of war turning, 
after the catastrophe at Stalingrad, 
where more than 145,000 German 
soldiers lost their lives, did a serious 
opposition to Hitler emerge. 

These men bad not been enraged 
by tbe seizure of Poland and Czecho- 
slovakia or the extermination of Eu- 
ropean Jews. During the war, there 
was precious little German resistance 
to tiie Nazi dictatorship. 

The late Chancellor Willy Brandt 
endured endless sniping during his 
postwar political career because be 
“turned his back on the Fatherland" 
and joined the anti-Nazi resistance 
in Norway. 

Dietrich Bonboffer. a pastor who 
traded places with a condemned 
man in a Nazi concentration camp, 
and whose letters from his death cell 
are among the most compelling lit- 
erature in the German language, is 
surely more worthy of admiration 
than the career officers who failed to 
kill their commander in chief. 

Yet more than any other act in the 
20th century, this failed assassina- 
tion has saved a vestige of honor for 
the Goman people. It has allowed 
them to celebrate their freedom 
from Nazism and to regret that it 
took millions of Allied troops to 
do what Colonel Stauffen berg al- 
most pulled off. 

Today the German people can 
say, “we too have our martyrs 
to freedom.” 

Naturally, celebrating tbe conspir- 


acy would have made even more 
sense in the years after the war, when 
the events were painfully fresh. There 
was a turning point in 1952, when a 
Nazi apologist. General Otto Entsi 
Remer. was convicted of slander for 
calling Colonel Stauffenberg and his 
cohorts “traitore." The case had been 
brought by several co-conspirators 
who bad escaped the Nazi purge. A 
German court sentenced Remer to 
three months in prison, referred to 
the bomb plotters as “heroes" and 
declared that the Hitler regime had 
been an “illegal state.” 

Colonel Stauffenberg's rehabilita- 
tion has continued apace ever since. 

The wives and children of the 
martyred conspirators were ignored 
after the war and many suffered 
serious deprivation during Germa- 
ny’s economic miracle in the 1950s, 
although the Remer verdict made it 
possible for some of the widows to 
receive military pensions. 

Like so much else in modem Ger- 
many. the line down the center of 
thecountry, which still exists despite 
the disappearance of the wall, the 
machine guns and the barbed wire, 
also separates two traditions of me- 
morializing the German resistance. 

In the former East Germany, it 
was the Communist underground, 
with imprisoned resistance fighters 
such as Erich Honecker. who were 
celebrated for their struggle against 
Nazi Germany. It is no longer ac- 
ceptable, after the fall of the Ger- 
man Democratic Republic, to re- 
member the Communist martyrs. 

Their place has been taken by two 
college students, the ‘Geschwistcr 
Scholl" ("brother and sister 
Scholl”), who organized a small 
group of students to distribute anti- 
regime literature and were beheaded 
by the Nazis. 

In Germany, they celebrate anni- 
versaries like' a small shopkeeper 
anxious for additional trade. 

In the past few years, they have 
noted the half-century mark of the 
Nuremberg race laws, the invasion 
of Poland and the uprising and de- 
struction of the Warsaw Ghetto. 

This relentless grinding through 
the greatest sins of tbe 20th century 
is slowly reaching its natural climax. 

Wednesday's anniversary is the 
only one of these painful memorials 
in which the German people can 
identify with tbe heroes and vic tims 
of the hour. Perhaps letting them 
have their martyrs is not too much 
to ask. But it u a shame that the 
German establishment couldn't re- 
sisipoliticizing the event. 

The German presidency is a large- 
ly ceremonial office, which was ele- 
vated to a new level of moral author- 
ity by Richard von Weizsacker 
through eloquent speeches on pre- 
cisely such occasions — most mem- 
orably in 1985, on the 40th anniver- 
sary of the end of the war. 

It would have been natural for the 
new president, Roman Herzog, to 
have gotten his baptism of fire 
on this occasion. 

But Chancellor Helmut Kohl, 
four months away from a national 
election, brushed aside his party col- 
league and insisted that he and he 
alone speak on this sacred day. 

It's hard to build legends with 
parochial politics.

STAGE /ENTERTAINMENT 


Aix Combats Adversity With an Exquisite ‘Zauberflote 


By John Rockwell 

New York Times Service 


A IX-EN-PROVENCE, France — 
As recently as 1989 the Aix festi- 
val, the best and roost prestigious 
French summer music festival 
since its founding in 1948, presented five 
opera productions. That Figure had fallen 
to three by 1993, and when a new produc- 
tion of Mozart’s “Die Zauberflfite” 
opened this year’s installment, the festival 
was down to one opera, to be given eight 
times in a two-week period. 

Bui the festival, in what Le Monde has 
called “one of the most troubling periods 
in its history,*' remains devoted to high 
artistic achievement. Louis Erie, the direc- 
tor, has managed a “Zauberflote” that not 
only surpasses the Handel “Orlando” and 
Weber "Euiyanthe" of last summer, but 
recalls the Aix’s glorious past as a Mozart 
center and stakes a bold claim for quality 


over compromise in the face of adversity. 

The festival’s troubles are both complex 
and painfully simple. They amount to a 
lack of money —from the city, the region, 
the department, private sponsors, the box 
office, and, above alt the state. France is 
still in recession, and this region in particu- 
lar is hurting. In addition, the price of 
producing opera is up from what it was 
just a Few years ago. 


To add to the festival’s woes, its tempo- 
rary stage structure collapsed in mid-May, 
necessitating costly repairs, which will be 
largely covered by insurance. A deeper 
problem is that Aix is no longer without 
competition, as it virtually was in its first 
heyday in the 1950s. 


but this production finds him full of lively 
opinions on that subject. 


But given the economic realities, no one 
in authority has been able to suggest a 
solution, apart from attrition. As Erlo put 
it in an interview Saturday, “The responsi- 
ble authorities haven’t made the necessary 
decisions that would determine the exis- 
tence or nonexistence of the festival. If it is 
to exist, they have to adopt the proper 
financial measures, to give us a chance for 
long-term planning. II they can't provide 
the funds, then they should have the cour- 
age to say that we can't continue. Nobody 
is taking the lead.” 


In the face of these challenges, Erlo 
decided to flesh out his schedule with more 
concerts and recitals, many of them most 
promising on paper, and to make his sole 
operatic production as refined and intelli- 


Perhaps responding to the bass-shy 
acoustics of the outdoor theater, he has 
chosen light textures and generally fleet 
tempos. Sometimes one missed the umbra! 
richness and ritual weight of the Masonic 
scenes, although another theater acoustic 
might redress those concerns. 


gent as he could; no pandering to the 
Three Tenors crowd here. 


The production reunites two of Aix’s 
recent mainstays, the conductor William 
Christie with his Arts Florissants ensemble 
and the Canadian stage director Robert 
Carsen. Both distinguished themselves in 


ways both satisfying and surprising. 

Christie, known as the premier inter- 
preter of the French Baroque, has not 
heretofore had much to say about Mozart, 


What distinguishes Christie’s “Zauber- 
flflte,” is its sinuous flexibility. He curls 
around this music as be does around that 
of Lully and Charpentier, rejecting the 
blunt style that has characterized so much 
Mozart performance in our modernist cen- 
tury. In addition, he has encouraged all 
manner of appogggiaturas and complex vo- 
cal ornamentation, including sometimes 
elaborate cadenzas. 

And he has a first-class cast, inrinrimg 

Rosa Mansion as Painina, Hans Peter 
Blochwitz as Tamino, Steven Cole as Mon- 
astatos, Reinhard Hagen as Sarastro and a 


by now very wobbly but still gravely au- 
thoritative Theo Adam as the Speaker. 

The most impressive, however, were An- 
ton Scfaarinaer, whose folksy Papageno is 
known worldwide but with no loss of 
freshness, and' Nathalie Dessay as the 
Queen of the Night Dessay seemed a little 
lacking in vengeful intensity, but she sang 
the notes with unusual fullness, sweetness, 
and accur&cy,'‘Hnd that . provided ample 
rewards by itself. 


In a stunning opening pf the second act, 
Careen reaves this with a defUj«s un- 
urecedented in my experience In the usu-

-■L X by simple but affecting decor 
from the English designer Patrick Kin- 
mouth. Scholars have squabbled for two 
centuries over Mozart’s supposed mid-

abducted her daughter, becomes the para- 
gon of enlightened virtue.

THEATER 


Ariel Dominates a Quirky ‘Tempest’ 


By Sheridan Morley 

International Herald Tribune 


L ondon — Not often 
do you get “The Tem- 
pest” starring Ariel 
rather than Prospero, 
though this is the risk run by 
Sam Meades ’s magical revival 
newly arrived for the RSC at 
the Barbican from Stratford. 

Alec McCowen, rooming the 
company after almost 30 years 
to continue the Robert Sto- 


/John Wood policy of 
og back the old giants to 


brin g in g back the old {pants to 
show the new generation a thing 
or two about Shakespeare, offers 
an oddly muted, schoolmasterly 
wizard who spends much of his 
time an the island up a ladder, 
watching over the rest of the cast 
from a safe distance. 

Simon RusseQ Beale’s Ariel, 
on the other hand, is every- 
where. A portly dictator in a 
pair of Chairman Mao's pyja- 
mas, he roams the stage m an 
increasing fury at Prospero’s 
constant delaying tactics to the 
promise of his freedom. This is 
no mmp fairy, darting about to 
do Prospero’s bidding, but a se- 
rious rival for authority who 
might himse lf, given luck and a 
fair wind, have ended up as 
Duke of Milan. 

And Arid is by no means the 



Its origins are equally unusu- 
al. A Hungarian play by Miklos 
Laszk) managed to become two 
Hollywood movies — “The 
Shop Around the Corner” 
(James Stewart and Margaret 
Suflavan, 1940) and “In the 
Good Old Summertime” (Van 
Johnson and Judy Garland, 
1949). So now we have an all- 
British cast playing an Ameri- 
can musical set in 1934 Buda- 
pest, and what’s more making it 
work against the odds.

ered here. David Bradley’s 
Trinculo has become an end-of- 
the-pier ventriloquist, forever 
allowing his dummy to respond 
to the iHs that are heaped upon 
him. Even David Trough ton's 
Caliban is a rethink, no longer 
half animal but instead a shav- 
en-headed refugee from a Hol- 
lywood prison camp. This is, in 
short, a distinctly qitiiky pro- 
duction in which every individ- 


ual idea makes sense but the 
whole is somehow less than its 
character parts. 

One of its central themes is 
certainly theatricality. Ariel 
opens the proceedings by 
sprin g in g out of a ship, and 
each of the shipwrecked groups 
arrives like a band of traveling 
players to explore their new en- 
vironment. But having abdicat- 
ed the driving forces of rage and 
revenge for a kind of melan- 
choly irony, McCowen finds it 
hard to exert real authority over 
this band of exiled misfits and 
the result is a “Tempest” with 
no real eye of the storm. 

Its star is still one of the most 


thoughtful and charismatic of 
Shakespeareans, an actor who 
now takes up the mantle of Sco- 
field: but, unlike Scofield, he 
rejects the easy routes to stage 
center. He has not been helped 
by Mendes’s decision to strand 
him so far upstage for much of 
the action. 

Given that we have had at 
least half a dozen “Tempests” 
in London in the last two years, 
it is hardly surprising that 
Mendes should be casting 
around (at times so feverishly) 
for new concepts or fresh in- 
sights, and his notions of magi- 
cal theatricality often work well 
enough on then own terms. But 


the losers here are the wrongful 
Duke of Milan and his ship- 
wrecked band. Nowhere for 
them is home, because we have 
been given no real sense that 
Prospero wants his old Italian 
kingdom back. 

In the history of great Broad- 
way musicals, “She Loves Me” 
(Savoy) has always been some- 
thing of an oddity. Its score by 
Jerry Bock and Sheldon Har- 
nick dates from 1963, the year 
before they wrote the infinitely 
more successful “Fiddler on the 
Roof.” Although it then only 
achieved brief runs on either 
side of the Atlantic, it acquired 
sufficient nostalgia status to

and depravity in our society.” 


M ANILA — The First Lady 
was mortified. A terrorist 
hit squad threatened retri- 
bution. And now political 
commentators are rewriting scenarios 
for future elections. 


Nearly a month after the rigging of a 
film festival awards ceremony, the scan- 
dal continues to reverberate. The “film- 
fest scam,” as the affair has been 
dubbed, has burgeoned here into the 
pretrial-publicity equivalent of Lhe OJ. 
Simpson case and spurred local pundits 
into paroxysms of self-abuse. 


Well, maybe. But the public outrage 
over the scam also showed that ordinary 
Filipinos are fed up with cheating. The 
f ilms of (he accused movie stars and 
managers, the so-called Filmfest Seven, 
have been banned in various cities, and 
Philippine movies generally have been 
taking a beating at the box office. 

“Crowds which used to ooh and aah 
whenever an actress or actor stalked by 
now turn up their noses,” said a publish- 
er and columnist. Max V. Soliven. 


“Are we a nation of cheats?” asked an 
editorial in a leading newspaper. “Are 
we a dishonest, lying, cheating people?” 

The scandal “shattered dreams, punc- 
tured illusions, transformed heroes and 
heroines into heels, grandees into grem- 
lins, role models into hooligans,” ef- 
fused a former presidential press secre- 
tary , Teodoro Benigno. “It showed, as

mark the Filmfest Seven for “people's 
revolutionary justice" — meaning cur- 
tains — if they did not draw prison terms. 

And political analysts say the scam 
may help stop a trend toward electing 
movie stars, comedians, basketball play- 
ers and other celebrities to public office. 

The scandal started when Ruffa Gu- 
tierrez, 20, a beauty queen who finished 
third in the Miss World pageant last 
year, and Nanette Medved, a young ac- 
tress, jointly announced the nam e of 
Gabby Concepcion as the winner of the 
trophy for best actor at the June 22 
Manila Film Festival awards ceremony. 
The announcement baffled the judges 
and an accounting firm that had tabu- 


lated their votes, since Concepcion, Ruf- 
fa’s co-star ip a local knockoff of the 
Lorena Bobbitt story, had actually come 
in a distant third. 


Even the Alex Boncayao Brigade, an 
urban assassination squad of the Com-

with the announcement of the best-ac-

The Filmfest Seven — Ruffa, brother 
Rocky, mother-manager Anabelle 
Rama, Concepcion, Medved, Lolita So- 
lis, Concepcion's manager, and Babajee 
— have been charged with fraud, deceit, 
grave scandal and obstruction of justice, 
which carry jail terms of four months to 
six years. Immigration authorities also 
began looking into the residency status 
of Medved and Concepcion, who are 
said to be U.S. dozens.

A VIGNON — "Angels in America," 
done into French superbly, arrived 
for an early stay at the Avignon 
theater festival and its premiere in 
the Goitre des Cannes held the first-night 
spectators agog. 

Tony Kushner calls his script, “A Gay 
Fantasy on National Themes," to which he 
adds a disturbing Nostradamus mention: 
“Millennium Approaches,” but his mysticism 
goes hand in hand with a Zolaesque realism. 

Kushner is not to be read, his play broad- 
ens on the boards. His words are simple, 
natural and often raw, but only whai spoken 
do they reach full force. He has learned what 
many dr ama tists have never discovered: Au- 
diences revolt when nagged. He holds a house 
for three hours without an intermission be- 
cause he does not hammer at his public. In his 
play — at heart a tragedy — he has much to 
say, but in addition to his opinions he spreads 
compassion and laughter. 

Brigitte Jaqucs. who directed, has adopted 
Kushner’s scant furniture scheme. A chair , a. 
lamp, a bar-stool, a hospital bed, a mattress is 
quickly delivered by prop-men who rush up 
with the needed object to create the scene and 
then vanish it away. The versatile interpret 01 *

are exceptional, all of them persuading us that 
they are Americans of New York. There are 
only 10 performers, with five doubling, but 
one comes away seeming to remember a siz- 
able cast 


In Euripides’s “Andromaque,” performed 
in the courtyard of the Palace of the Popes, 
Jacques Lassalle, a former a dmini s tr ator of 
the Comedie Fran^aise, has sought to link the 
ancient wars to the contemporary ones. He 
believes that the dtizens of ancient Athens 
had more or less the same notions and reac- 
tions as those of today, and Marianne Basler 
as Hormone, Christine Gagnieux as Audio- 
marpie and Hubert Gignoux as P&6e are 
artists of distinction. 


This year’s spotlight is on Japan and there 
is a rich program of differing forms of theater 
from the ancient Noh to Kyogen — farcical 
skits, and Kagura — which the Japanese 
translate as “for the pleasure of the Gods.” 

The Zingaro company is an original mix- 
tun; of theater, dance and areas horse shows, 
and its new spectacle by Bartabas is based on 
the same recipe as his previous works: A 
traveling equestrian circus company discov- 
ers new lands and cultures. Here it is com-, 
bined with Indian music and damping from 
Rajasthan. The result is fascinating, a dream- 
like voyage. 


justify a triumphant New York 
revival last year. 


Those odds are high. Virtual- 
ly any song in the show can be 
taken out, put bade in some- 
where else or dropped entirety. 
Comparisons of the present 
score with the 1963 New York 
and London originals show tre- 
mendous chang es , althou gh the 
plot remains virtually intact 

The central conceit is of two 
shop assistants (the hugely win- 
ning John Gordon Sinclair and 
the Ruthie Henshall, who lodes 
set to become Elame Paige’s 
only true rival among home- 
grown West End musical stars) 
who write love letters to eadi 
other anonymously. However, 
what really makes “She Loves 
Me” work are its many sub- 
plots. As he was to do stm more 
triumphantly with “Cabaret” 
three years later, Joe Masteroff 
has taken almost a dozen char- 
acters and given each of them a 
separate biography as well as a 
reason to sing about it 


“She Loves Me” is thus a 
company show of wondrous lyri- 
cal delight: no special effects, no 
spectacular scenery, just the re- 
turn to a lost world of style, 
charm and happy endings. 


Babajee, 20, an aspiring starlet who had 
represented Mauritius in the Miss Uni- 
verse beauty pageant here in May. As 
Bairetto started to read the result from 
an official letter, Babajee, a house guest 
of the Gutierrez family, shouted. “Ruffa 
Gutierrez!” and whispered to Rocky, 
“Take it, take it” He then pocketed the 
paper, and his sister received the trophy.

Mayor Alfredo Lim of Manila called the 
audience back, denounced the “hoax”

Canadian Sparkle in RTZ’s Eye 

Diamond Deposits Could Put It Ahead in a New Field 


By Erik Ipsen 

I/tiematienaf Herald Tribune 

LONDON —Cockle Creek, Mono de 
Ouro and Tiwai Point move over. In the 
stable of mines operated by RTZ Corp., 
a new name is looming that may put all 
the otters into its shadow. 

It is Lac de Gras in Canada, and what 
it may yet yield to its overseers in Lon- 
don is rate of the biggest gem-quality 
diamond deposits in recent decades. 

“Their diamond urines have the poten- 
tial to be enormously lucrative,” David 
Morgan, an analyst with i-rfwnan Broth- 
ers, said. "If the rumors on the size of 
these deposits turn oat to be right, wc 
could au be having diamonds in our 
Christmas crackers in a few years’ rime.” 

While such predictions remain ex- 
tremely speculative, there is no disputing 
that if Lac de Gras becomes a major 
source of gem-quality diamonds, RTZ 
would rank among the largest beneficia- 
ries, with stakes in 44 of the 77 publicly 
disclosed potential deposits. 

KIZ is expected to disclose results of 
its rests on those deposits next month, 
.and many analysts expect the results to 
lead the company to start full-scale com- 
mercial mining shortly after rtiat, 

The chances of such a move improved 
Monday, when the world's largest dia- 
mond company, De Bens Consolidated 
Mines Lto, armounced a preliminary 
agreement with its fimimfinn partner un- 
der which it would spend as much as 


$500 million to explore, evaluate and 
possibly develop hs deposits there. 

RTZ, the world's largest mining com- 
pany, has never been in the gem-quality 
diamond business. Bui then again, it had 
never owned a coal mine on its own until 
last year; and now, two acquisitions and 
$1 3 billion later, it is the fifih-largest 
coal miner in the United States. 

What drives RTZ is not strategy as 
ranch as naked opportunism. "We have 

'Their diamond mines 
have the potential to be 
enormously lucrative.’ 

David Morgan, analyst, Lehman 
Brothers 

no preference as to what the mix of com- 
modities we mine five or 10 years from 
now will be,” said Robert Wilson. RTZ’s 
chief executive. “We are after opportunity 
irrespective of the commodity.” 

That philosophy has consistently 
stood the company in good stead. Even 
in the last recession, when prices of non- 
ferrous metals slumped by nearly 60 per- 
cent from their 1988 peaks, RTZ re- 
mained comfortably profitable. For 
1993, a lousy year for most, the mining 
world’s pre-eminent opportunists posted 
pretax earnings of £652 milli on (51 bil- 
lion) on revenue of £4.8 billion. 

That ability to wring profit out of bad 


years as well as good has won RTZ a 
double-A credit rating, the highest among 
the world's major mining companies. 

Analysts say the company's broad 
product range — from coal and uranium 
to copper, gold and borax — has also 
enabled it to be more patient than most. 
If production costs for one commodity 
get too high, it can shift its acquisitive 
energies to another. 

The decision to move into coal mining, 
for instance, was made nearlv a decade 
before the company actually bought 
such a mine — when prices of coal and 
coal mines were far from their peaks. 

“This is a company that knows bow to 
buy straw hats in winter,” Emil Morfett, 
an analyst with Paribas Capital Markets, 
said. 

It is a philosophy fed by a strikingly 
and unswervingly ’dour outlook. “Our 
business really is to recognize tha t most 
mined products rend to be in oversupply 
more often than undersupply,” Mr. Wil- 
son said. 

With too much product and too little 
only the lowest-cost producers 
stay profitable. RTZ executives happily 
point out that the company is routinely 
outbid in auctions for mines. 

Many see this as one of the company’s 
greatest strengths. “In an industry lit- 
tered with costly mistakes, RTZ’s secret 
has been to avoid the catastrophes,” Mr. 
Morgan said. 

Take for example the company’s views

GE Profit Sets 
Record Despite 
Kidder Scandal 


Compiled by Our Staff From Dispatches 

FAIRFIELD, Connecticut 
— General Electric Co. on 
Tuesday posted record second- 
quarter profit of $1-52 billion, 
as earnings in its financial -ser- 
vices sector outweighed costs of 
a bond-trading scam at its Kid- 
der, Peabody & Co. unit that 
was disclosed in April. 

famingt in the quarter — 
which equaled 89 cents a share 
and represented a 14 percent rise 
from 51 J3 billion, or 78 cents a 
share, a year earlier — were fu- 
eled by double-digit gains in 
eight business sectors. Revenue 
rose 10 percent from the 1993 
quarter, to 516.20 billion. 

The results were in line with 
market expectations. The con- 
sensus estimate among 1 1 ana- 
lysts surveyed by Zacks Invest- 
ment Research called for 
earnings of 88 cents a share. 
General Electric’s shares 
closed at 548.75, up 87_5 cents, 
on the New York Stock Ex- 
change. 

Profit on operations at GE 
Capital Services rose 12 per- 
cent, to 5463 million, with 
strong results in insurance and 
equipment managenumt more 
than offsetting a previously an- 


nounced loss of $29 million at 

Kidder Peabody. 

Kidder announced in April it 
had uncovered a scheme by its 
bead government bond trader, 
Joseph Jett, that had resulted in 
S350 million in phantom profits 
being recorded last year. The 
company fired Mr. Jett, who is 
now under federal investiga- 
tion, and took a $210 million 
charge against first-quarter 
earnings. 

Nice of GE’s 12 businesses 
reported improved operating 
profit. The jeight posting dou- 
ble-digit increases were appli- 
ances. transportation, motors, 
power 
rag, 

Services, 
television network and at GE 
Aircraft Engines. The aircraft- 
engine division has been ac- 
cused in a lawsuit filed by a 
former employee of violating 
federal safety guidelines. 

For the first six months of the 
r. General Electric earned 
L59 billion, or $132 a share, 
compared with $2.42 billion, or 
$1.41 a share, a year earlier. 
First-half revenue rose to 
$3038 billion from $27.62 bil-

U.S. Bank Profits Up Despite Higher Cost of Funds 


O UonMional HwbM Trbm 


By Lawrence Malkin 

• hue r n ational HtraU Tribme 

NEW YORK — Despite ris- 
ing interest rates, many mgor 
U.S. banks on Tuesday report- 
ed increased second-quarter 
profits as they lent money in an 
expanding economy. The big 
New York banks reported 
strong profits despite declines 
in trading revenue. 

“Plato-vanilla banking is do- 
ing reasonably well, and when 
you get oat of New York strong 
loan demand is pushing up 
profits where the economy is 
growing, especially in the 


Southeast and Midwest,” Ra- 
fael Soifer, bank analyst at 
Brown Brothers Har dman & 
Ox, said of this week’s quarter- 
ly bank results. 

The nationwide credit crunch 
appears to be over, and banks 
are bidding eagerly to make 
loans. But thin means they alie n 
are competing to Vn*p loan 
rates down as the Federal Re- 
serve Board raises the cost of 
funds. 

The New York money center 
banks, which axe increasingly 
dependent on fees, increased 
profits in part by cleaning up 


their balance sheets, especially 
tfamtos to refinancing Brazil’s 
huge government debt with new 
bonds. 

A major beneficiary of this 
was Citicorp, which reported 
net income of $877 million for 
the second quarter, almost dou- 
ble last year’s second-quarter 
profit of $446 million. The 
country’s largest and most in- 
ternational bank used pan of 
the money to lift loan-loss re- 
serves by $400 million and slash 

its co mmer cial noi 


assets by a huge $1-5 billion, to 
$3.4 billion, most of which now 
is in bad UJS. real estate. 


John Reed, the president of 
Gticorp, said the bank’s “core 
business is solid” and earned 
roughly what it did in the first 
quarto 1 . But quarterly trading 
revenue dropped to $159 mil- 
lion from last year’s $572 mil- 
lion, although stiD improved 
from the first quarter’s dismal 
571 milli on. 

Chemical RanVing Corp** the 
third-largesl bank in the country 
and one of the New York banks 
most dependent on regional 
banking, increased quarterly net 
income by $20 milli on from last 
year, to $327 milli on, mainly 
from an improving loan busi- 


ness. Its trading revenue fell to 
$203 million in the second quar- 
ter from $298 million in the com- 
parable year-ago period 

Outside New York, Mellon 
Bank Corp-* in Pittsburgh, in- 
creased its quarterly income to 
$134 million from 599 minio n, 
despite an $85 million charge for 
its acquisition of Dreyfus Corn, 
to get into mutual funds. PNC 
Bank Crap., also of Pittsburgh, 
increased net income to $188 
mini on from $169 milli on , while 
Banc One Corp-. of Columbus, 
Ohio, increased net income to 
$316 millio n from $282 nrilhoiL 


Sprint Reports

KANSAS CITY, Mis- 
souri — Sprint Carp, said 
its second-quarter profit 
rose 33 percent, paced by 
record operating inoome in 
its long-distance and cellu- 
lar telephone operations. 

Sprint posted second- 
quarter profit of $220 mil- 
lion. or 63 cents a share,

MEDIA MARKETS 


Li Galls Back in Britain 


By Erik Ipsen 

Jmcnuaianei Herald Tribute • 

L ONDON — Fresh from one of the 
most costly disasters in the history of 
British triecomrm mi cations, Hutchi- 
son Telecom UJKL is doubling its 
bets. Six months after itpuQed die plug on its 
£150 miHkra ($234 mutton) foray into the 
British mobile-phone market, Hutchinson, a 
unit of Ii Ka-shing’s Hong Kong-based con- 
glomerate Hutchison Whampoa LnL. has a 
new horse to ride — a digital mob3e-pbraie 
network known as Orange. 

Skeptics abound. "The view in the market 
here is that they screwed op once in Britain 
and will do it again, only on a much bigger 
scale,” said Mark Snnpkm, an analyst for 
Baring Securities ini Hong Kong. 

By the time the Hutchison's Orange system 
is completed in late 1995, it wiD have cost its 
three owners an estimated £700 n uTK on . The. 
lion’s share of that bill will faD to Hutchison, 
which holds 65 percent of Orange. British 
Aerospace PLC has a 30 percent stake and 
Barclays Bank PLC has 5 percent. 

Hutchison’s first venture into the British 

K * : market was a system called Rabbit, 
as the poor man’s mobile phone.' The 
problem was that its service matched its rock- 
bottom price. The phones, which could not 
receive calls and could make calls onlywithin 
100 yards of its aH-too-ferw base stations, 
never found a market. . . 

This time around, though, Hutchison in- 
sists it is backing a winner. Cohn Tucker, the 
company’s director of operations, said that 
Orange, which was officially launched relate 
April, was running “significantly ahead” of 


its business plan in terms of number of sub- 
scribers as weH as volume of calls. 

Hutchison's hope is that Orange’s eventual 
success will enable the company to establish 
both a track record and an expertise that they 
can take into other markets. 

- “This is our jumping-off point for all of 
Europe,” Mr. Tucker said. Hutchison already 
owns the largest mobile-phone network in 
Hong Kong mid operates paging systems in 
Australia, Thailand and Malaysia plus mo- 
bile-phone service companies in Germany 
and France. . 

For Mr. Li, the question most often asked 
is why he has come so far to spend so much — 
especially when so many European compa- 
nies are falling all over themselves to invest in 
the booming markets of China and much of 
.the rest of Asia. In reply, company executives 
shrug and point out that when the decision to 
p roceed with Orange was made three years 
ago, Britain was stiD the only market to have 
thrown qpen its doors to free competition. 

■ Others however, have also responded to 
that opportunity. Orange is not the first, sec- 
ond, or even third entry into die mobile tele- 
com sweepstakes in Britain, but the fourth. 

While Hutchison’s state-of-the-art digital 
system represents * major technological leap 
over its two largest competitors and their 
joosdy analog systems, it suffers from a geo- 
graphic reach that ax present encompasses 
only half of Britain. Moreover, its handsets 
cost £300, compared with as little as £40 for 
its competitors’ phones. 

“The vast majority of people want cheap 
handsets and n a t io n al coverage,” said James

Honda Cars 
To Be Made 
InMexico 

Compiled by Our Staff From Dapattha 

DETROIT — Honda Motor 
Co. said Tuesday it planned to 
increase auto production in the 
United Stares and Canada and 
would start assembling cars in 
Mexico next year. 

The Japanese automaker — 
which indicated last week it 
would move more production 
capacity to America, in part to 
offset the costs of the strong yen 
— stud the moves would add 
1,100 jobs in the United States 
and Canada, bringing its total 
to more than 17,000. The plan 
also would raise its manufactur- 
ing capacity in the two coun- 
tries to 720,000 cars a year by 
1997 from 610,000 at preseoL 

Honda will add 250 jobs in 
Mexico, where its plant is ex- 
pected to turn out 1S,000 cars a 
year initially, as part of an ef- 
fort to increase sales through- 
out Latin America. It said it 
would also export 150,000 cars 
m ade in the United States and 
Canada to Central and South 
America by 1999. 

Honda said it would expand 
the capacity of its engine plant 
in the United States to 750,000 
engines is 1998 from 500,000 
and develop two new Acura 
models for production in 1996.

NEW YORK — Strength in 
the dollar helped Treasury 
bond prices rally Tuesday, but 
the stock market fell amid a 
flurry of second-quarter corpo- 
rate results. 

The price of the benchmark 
30-year Treasury bond rose 
14/32 point, to 85 22/32, send- 


11.5. Stocks 


mg the yield down to 7.46 per- 
cent, down from 7.50 percent 
Monday. Bonds were lifted by 
renewed interest in dollar-de- 
□ominaied securities as the U.S. 
currency rallied. 

But strength in bonds did not 
rescue the stock market, where 
losing issues outpaced gaining 
ones by an l l-to-9 ratio on the 
New York Stock Exchange. The 
Dow Jones industrial average 
lost 7.12 points, closing at 
3,748.31. 

Banking stocks were among 
the weakest sector of the mar- 
ket, despite higher second-quar- 
ter earnings reports from most 
major banks. Analysts said the 
higher earnings were largely the 
result of shrinking loan-loss re- 
serves and cost-cutting. 

Signet Banking tumbled 4'.5 


to 37%, despite reporting a 25 
percent increase in income. 

Intel fell 1% to 57 in active 
trading after the semiconductor 
maker said its profit margins 
shrank. The company also re- 
ported an increase in second- 
quarter profit that was in line 
with analysis' expectations. 

Lotus Development plunged 
5% to 33 after the software 
maker reported reduced earn- 
ings and said it could not prom- 
ise better results for the second 
half of the year. 

CBS fell 4 to 308 after reports 
t hat Laurence Tisch, the com- 
pany's chairman, said the com- 
pany was not for sale. 

TRW rallied 2% to 67% after 
reporting a 57 percent increase 
in second-quarter earnings- The 
maker of automotive compo- 
nents, missiles and satellites 
said accelerating demand for 
automobile air bags helped the 
bottom line. 

Tribune Co. fell 1% to 54% 
despite a 37 percent increase in 
second-quarter earnings. The 
publisher of the Chicago Tri- 
bune said higher returns from 
its media sector and narrower 
losses in its newsprint division 
contributed to the profit.

Compiled In Oar Staff From Dupaiches 

NEW YORK — The dollar 
rallied agains t the yen on Tues- 
day, ana it strengthened against 
most other currencies amid spec- 
ulation that the Federal Reserve 
Board chairman. Alan Green- 
span, would talk about raising 
interest rates when he testifies 
before Congress Wednesday. 

The dollar also seemed to get 


Foreign Exchange 


some support from news that 
the U.S. trade deficit with Ja- 
pan had narrowed considerably 
in May, even though the overall 
American trade gap widened. 

The dollar ended in New 
York at 1.5685 DM, up from 
1.5467 DM on Monday, and at 
99.20 yen, up from 98.41 yen. Ii 
also rose to 1-3275 Swiss francs 
from 1.3045 francs and to 
5.3760 French francs from 
5.3065. The pound slipped to 
$1.5486 from $1.5614.

Markets were expected to re- 
main quiet before the Wednes- 
day testimony by Mr. Green- 
span and a Bundesbank council 
meeting on Thursday that some 
traders and analysts say could 
produce a ait in German inter- 
est rates. Higher U.S. and lower 
German rates would give inves- 
tors an incentive to switch from 
marks to dollars. 

Mr. Greenspan is to give his 
semiannual testimony on mon- 
etary policy before the Senate 
Banking Committee. Many 
traders who had sold dollars 
earlier bought them back Tues- 
day in case Mr. Greenspan 
should indicate plans to raise 
rates to control inflation. 

“A lot of people expect 
Greenspan to hint at raising 
rates tomorrow,” said Lynn 
Tierney, vice president at Shiaw- 
mut Bank of Boston. “You have 
to be careful in case be does.” 

The Fed has raised interest 
rates four times this year to con- 
trol inflation, pushing the fed- 
eral funds rate on overnight 
bank loans to 4.25 percent from 
3 percenL The increases were 
the first in five years.

FRANKFURT — The 
Bundesbank on Tuesday re- 
ported a slowdown in German 
money-supply growth in June, 
raising investors’ hopes of a cut 
in German interest rates and 
pushing up stock prices. 

But economists and dealers 
were divided on whether the

etary policy cm Thursday, the 
final meeting before its n»nwn»T

ing the European aircraft con- 
sortium past its U.S. rival, 
Boeing Co., during the period 

% The company said it received 
69 firm orders through June, riv- 
ing it a SS percent share of orders 
for planes with more than 100 
seats. It said Boeing, with 51 
orders, took 41 percent of the 
market. McDonnell Douglas 
Crap, was third with four orders. 

Airbus, a consortium of Aero- 
spatiale of France, British Aero- 
space PLC, Coastrucriones Aer- 
onaut! cas SA of Spain and 
Deutsche Aerospace AG of Ger- 
many, said the improvement in 
orders rignaled the start of a 
recovery from a four-year slump. 


The Bundesbank said M-3, its 
broad measure of money in the 
economy and a favored indica- 
tor of future inflation, had ex- 
panded at an annualized rate of 
113 percent in June The figure 
was stiD way above its target for 
1994 growth of 4 percent to .6

An Activist Takes a Capitalist Trip 

Nouvelles Frontieres Fights for Rights of Passage

By Jacques Neher 

international Herald Tribute 

PARIS — Jacques Maillol, active a 
quarter-century ago in France's student 
protests, rays he is still fighting fora kind 
of social justice; The right to travel 
“From the start, my idea has been to 
democratize travel to make it available to 
everyone," said Mr. MriEot, whose com- 
pany, Gronpe Nouvelles Frontieres SA, 
has surpassed its more wdl -known rival. 
Club Mcdherranie SA,in the French, do- 
mestic market and now ranks as The sev- 
en tb-largest tour operator in Europe. 

- By widening the company’s range of 
travel services, Mr. Maillot said he armed 
over the next five years to lift Nouvelles 
Frontieres to third place in Europe, be- 
hind Touristik Union International 
GmbH of Germany and Thomson Tour 
Operations Ltd. of Britain. 

■StaTtmg fry nffqrog cut-rate charter 
Sights to off-thc-bealen-tra& destina- 
tions, Nouvdks Frontiers is now active in 
almost all sectors of the travel industry, 
offering organized tours and do-it-your- 
self pnwrayt tO 160 H qrhmiinnt aiOUXld 
the world. By multiplying these destina- 
tions by a choice of hotels and other add- 
on services, the company can offer nearly 
400 travel products. 

As volume has grown — it now claims 
upwards of 1.6 mndoa customers a year 
—Nouvelles Frontieres has ventured into 
related businesses. It operates its own 
airline, Corsair, with six aircraft including 
four Boeing 747s; a fast-growing string of 
seaside and mountain resort hotds; a car 
rental fleet; a language school to prepare 
its customers for their voyages,- and a 
business-travel subsidiary that aims to of- 
fer discounts of up to 50 percent on first- 
class and business-class aiding tickets. 
Expanding his buriness with a keen eye 
to the m imaging the media — he is the 
company's top press officer — Mr. Mail- 
lot never shies away from the opportunity 
to get free publicity. He relishes higb- 


F ranee to ply open protected markets. 
Most recently, his efforts resulted in Cor- 


sair breaking the national carrier's mo- 
nopoly on the route to New Caledonia. 

NouveUe Frontieres’ strategy of com- 
bining low prices and freedom of choice 
appears soiled for the limes. Last year, as 
the recession ravaged Europe's tourism 
and airline industries, the company 
racked up a 12 percent increase in sales, 
to 538 billion French francs (Si billion), 
and pretax earnings edged up 1 percent, 
to 163 minio n francs. 

Id this financial year, which ends Sept 
30, Mr. Maillot said he expected “at 

'From tlie start, my idea 
has been to democratize 
travel, to make it 
available to everyone.* 

Jacques Maillot, founder, 

NouveQea Frontieres. 


least” a 123 percent jump m sales and “a 
significant growth” in profit. 

Mr. Maillot, 52, started out in the 
business by accident. As a law student 
who had gathered experience arranging 
boy-scout outings, Mr. Maillot began 
applying ins organizational skills to put- 
ting together low-priced study tours for 
fellow students. The first one, to Moroc- 
co in 1965, drew 150 people, leading Mi. 
Maillot two years later to create Nou- 
velles Frontieres as a nonprofit associa- 
tion that, with its fast-growing member- 
ship, could increasingly bargain for 
volume discounts from the major carri- 
ers and holds. By 1973, the association 
had attracted nearly 40.000 customer- 
members and the government forced it 
to apply for a travel-agency license and 
become a tax-paying company. 

To break away from the pack. Mr. 
Maillot refused to market ins travel 
packages through established agencies, 
believing they would be unable to offer 
informed sales information on such a 


wide product offering, especially along- 
side the packages of all the other tour 
operators they represent. Instead, he 
opened his own chain of agencies exclu- 
sively devoted to the company's prod- 
ucts. Today, it operates more than 150 
agencies — two-thirds company owned, 
one- third franchised — and 35 more are 
to open this year. 

The ttk»" sales tool is a semiannual 
catalog and related brochures, on which 
the company spends about 20 million 
francs. The spring-summer 1 994 catalog 
runs 722 pages, offering, for example, a 
two-week adventure trek from Paris to 
Tanzania, starting with a safari and and 
ending with a six -day dhnb to the snows 
of Kilimanjaro — for 13.610 francs per 
person. Also on offer is a 17-day trip in 
November to Lake Chungara, 4,000 me- 
ters (13,200 fee) high in the Chilean An- 
des, to witness a total solar eclipse, at 
19390 francs, and a one- week motorcy- 
cle rally/camping tour on Crete, for 
around 4,000 francs, gasoline not includ- 
ed. 

Because the company is healthy finan- 
cially, with a 33 percent debt-to-equity 
ratio, Mr. Maillot said be saw no reason 
to take it public, although he said some 
of its subsidiaries, such as Corsair, the 
Paladien hotel chain or the Pops Car 
auto rental business, could be floated 
within the next two years “to speed up 
their development.' 1 

Mr. Maillot owns 25 percent of the 
Nouvelles Frontieres holding company, 
with the rest held by company officers, 
several of which have been with the com- 
pany almost since its founding. 

Recalling his radical days, Mr. Maillot 
said he saw no contradiction between bis 
social activism in 1968 and his capitalis- 
tic success. “Tve always been a believer 
in liberalism in economic matters, and 
I’ve been on the left in the social do- 
main," he said. “But you can’t make 
social gains on credit. You need to make 
a profiL”

EU Concedes Aid to Wheat and Dairy Farmers MINING: Canadian Diamond Prospect Puts Sparkle Into RTZ’s Outlook 


Compiled by Our Staff From Dispatches 

BRUSSELS — European Union farm 
ministers broke a six-month deadlock over 
farm prices and mfBr quotas an Tuesday, 
with EU officials pled g in g over $450 mil- 
lion in farm aid over the next 12 months. 

The breakthrough was made after the 
European Commission conceded some aid 
for northern French producers of durum 
wheat, which is used to make pasta, and 
Germany moderated its own demands af- 


ter taking over the rotating iiU presidency 
on July I. . 

.“Durum was a particularly difficult 
question,” the German farm minister, Jo- 
chen Borcbert, said after a 10-hour negoti- 
ating session. 

France won the right to grow an extra 
50,000 hectares (125,000 acres) of hard 
wheat outside its traditional areas fra* such 
crops, to be subsidized by the EU. Agricul- 
ture Minister Jean Puech of France had 
been pushing far rights to grow four times 


as much. Spain. Portugal and Italy also 
had their hard- wheat quotas increased. 

The European Commission also agreed 
not to reduce milk quotas over the next 
two seasons, and it pledged to limit to 3 
percent any fall in guaranteed butter prices 
through 1&5. It had initially proposed a 5 
percent reduction. 

The annual EU fans price talks, which 
began in February, have a history of stretch- 
ing out over many months.

on investing in the former Sovi- 
et Union. Mr. Wilson flatly in- 
sisted it would be “daft” to in- 
vest in existing mines there, 
citing a lethal combination of 
environmental problems and 
immense overstaffing. RTZ, he 
said, was evaluating 

identified but untapped depos- 
its that lack the heavy baggage 
of existing operations. 


Most controversially, that 
conservatism even extends to 
RTZ’s approach to the futures 
markets: It avoids them. While 
many American copper compa- 
nies, for instance, seized on a 
rise in copper prices that began 
in November by taking out op- 
tions that guaranteed them at 
least a certain minimum price 
for their product, RTZ de- 
murred. As 1994 progressed 
and copper prices continued to 


rise, that seemed like a prescient 
strategy. It was not. It was a 
matter long-held policy. 

“Whenever you hedge, it 
costs you something, and the 
more sophisticated the hedge, 
the more it costs,” said Phillip 
Crowson, RTZ’s chief econo- 
mist 

RTZ’s view, in essence, is 
that the best defease against the 
risk of low commodity prices is 
a good offense — driving costs 


ever lower. To do that the com- 
pany consistently invests 5500 
milli on a year, even during the 
down part of its business cycle, 
to upgrade its operations.

TELECOM: Li Defies Caution Signals 


Continued from Page 11 
Sawtell an analyst with War- 
burg Securities in London. On 
that basis, he insists that Brit- 
ain’s two largest cellular-phone 
companies, Vodafone Group 
PLC and Cellnet Ltd., still hold 
the winning cards. 

By the end of next year. Or- 
ange expects to have expanded 
its network of base-station 
transmitters to the point where 
the system will be available to 
95 percent of the nation’s popu- 
lation. Also by then, many peo- 
ple say, the price of digital 
handsets probably wfll have 
come down at least 50 percent. 

The problem is that, by that 
time, with all four cellular oper- 
ators offering roughly similar 
coverage and service, analysts 
suggest the battle win depend 
on the price of the service. 

One of the attractions of the 
British cellular market thus far 
has been its profit margins. Ste- 
fan Herz, an analyst with Smith 
New Court, estimates that Vo- 
dafone and Cellnet, which until 
this year had the market all to 
themselves, have had operating 
mar gins of more than 45 per- 
cent. With four players plying 


the market, he says, “it is a 
completely different ball 
game.” 

The two new market players 
— Orange and Mercury One- 
to-One, a unit of Cable & Wire- 
less PLC — initially have done 
what upstarts do everywhere. 
They have aggressively under- 
cut the market leaders' prices to 
win market share. In Orange’s 
case, its tariffs are roughly one- 
third below those of the market 
leaders. 

But in a battle that analysts 
say may ultimately hinge on 
price. Orange and Mercury face 
a serious handicap. Their digi- 
tal networks use a new, high 
broadcast frequency called 
PCN, while the competition 
uses the older and more popular 
GSM frequency. PCN systems 
are more expensive to buDd be- 
cause they need more base star 
tions to cover the same geo- 
graphic area as GSM systems. 

Evan Miller, an analyst for 
Lehman Brothers, estimated 
the cost difference at £300 mil- 
lion. What is more, because the 
PCN system is not nearly as 
widely used around the world, 
handsets geared to that system 
are not expected to fall in price 


as quickly as the more popular 
GSM handsets. 

The great hope for Orange is 
that demand for mobile phones 
will grow rapidly enough to 
keep the cash registers hum- 
ming at all four phone compa- 
nies. 

“Hutchison will be keen to 
hold their prices,” Warburg’s 
Mr. Sawtell said. “They are 
keen not to have a big blade 
bole in their U.K. operations.” 

With 2.3 million mobile 
phones in use in Britain now, 
and with the total widely ex- 
pected to swell to 10 million by 
the end of the century, analysts 
said Hutchison’s gamble could 
wdl pay off. That kind of 
growth, they contended, could 
allow all four companies to 
keep a steady course and avoid 
a potentially ruinous price war. 

At present, though, that re- 
mains a large question mark. In 
both Hong Kong and London, 
many analysts still wonder 
whether Mr. Li is willing to play 
out such a massive long-term 
gamble. They suggest he may 
move to sell all or part of hjs 
stake in Change in spite of his 
frequent denials of any such in- 
tentions. 


EU Telecom 

Deregulation 

DealtaSetback 

The Associated Press 

STRASBOURG, France 
— The European Parlia- 
ment on Tuesday rejected a 
European Union proposal 
to deregulate Europe's tele- 
communications industry 
and open it up to outside 
competition by 1998. 

Using new powers 
sained under the new 
Maastricht Treaty, the Par- 
liament rejected a so-called 
Open Network Provision to 
open telephone calls to 
greater competition, as 
agreed by the 12 EU coun- 
tries last year. 

The Parliament objected 
to the fact that EU coun- 
tries refused to give the leg- 
islature a role in the work 
of a “management commit- 
tee” that will make a num- 
ber of follow-up proposals 
to implement the law. 

The vote means the EU 
will have to review its tele- 
communications strategy.

Acer Returns 


ASIA/PACIFIC 



In U.S., Europe 


Bbombcrg Businas News 

TABPH — Acer Inc. said 
Tuesday its provisional firet-half 
prefit triplol, to a record 135 
billion Taiwan dollars ($51 mil- 
lion). and analysts said the per- 
sonal-computer maker was tike- 
hr to raise its fuB-year profit 
forecast for a second rimt» 

Tbe results; which the com- 
pany attributed to increased 
sales and a return to profitabili- 
ty in its European and TJ.S. op- 
erations, were termed “very im- 
pressive” by Ben Chen, of 
the Taipei office of Barclays de 
ZoeteWedd. 

The U.S. and European units 
had losses of $13 million in 
1993, Stan Sbih, Acer's chair- 
man, said. 

Sales rose 82 percent in the 
first half, to 13.6 billion dollars, 
the company said. While Acer's 
profit figures include earnings 
from its subsidiaries, its sales 
numbers do noL - 

Mr. Sbih said only that Acer 
expected to “smoothly reach 
the current fuB-year cermrtg e 
^target of 2.4 billion dollars, in 
part because of an expected 50 
percent rise in shipments of 
desktop computers and a dou- 
bting of deliveries of notebook 
computers in the second half. 

But analysts said the fore- 
cast, which was raised from 13 
bfltion dollars in May, might 
well be raised again. Acer had 
profit of 1.1 billion dollars for 
ati of 1993, a record year for 


Taiwan’s largest computer 

company. 

Jon Ross, chief of HG Aria 
Securities in Taipei, predicted 
Acer’s 1994 net earning s would 
reach 2.7 billion dollars. Acer’s 
shares frill to 98 dollars on the 
Taipei stock market Mr. Ross 

Said the warnings ann ounce- 
ment, which came after the 
market dosed, was “within ex- 
pectations.’* 

Mr. Gten said results were 
helped by steady prices for 
memory chips made at Acer’s 
58 percent-owned subsidiary, 
Texas btstruments-Acer Inc. 
Acer: did not say how much 
profit the venture had contrib- 
uted. Texas Instruments- Acer 
accounted for more than half of 
Acer’s fust-quarter profit erf 
about 500 million dollars. 

.Texas Insirumenl-Acer is 26 
percent-owned fry Texas Instru- 
ments Inc. and 16 percent by 
China Development Corp., a 
Taiwan investment firm. 

■ Japan Hans Grip Project 

Japan hopes to launch an in- 
ternational project, to develop 
large silicon wafers. The Asso- 
ciated Press reported from To- 
kyo, quoting Japanese officials. 

The officials, who said the 
project could improve effiaency 
m conqxiter-chip production by 
a factor of five, said the Ministry 
of International Trade and In- 
dustry would seek to begin the 
seven-year, 18 fcaDkm yen ($183

India’s New Woe: Wealth 

Foreign Capital Fuels Inflation Fears 


TfoAaoaaedPrra 

NEW DELHI — Money brings problems. 
That is a lesson -that chronically poor India is 
beginning to learn as its cash reserves sudden- 
ly pile up. 

Three years ago, the country's treasury had 
just enough foreign-currency reserves to pay 
for two weeks’ supplies of petroleum and 
cooking oil Facing bankruptcy. India over- 
hauled its' economy. 

Now, its bank account is overflowing, 
than ks to Success in attracting foreign inves- 
tors. Reserves are $16 billion, their highest 
level ever. Economists predict they may reach 
$24 frflHon by tbe end of the year. 

Bui f inancial managers are worried that too 
much money will prompt inflation, now run- 
ning at over 10 percent annually, to soar out 
' of control 

The reason is that India’s government is 
committed to baying all the foreign money 
that is flowing in, forcing it to prim more erf 
Us own currency, with no backing by gold 
reserves. 

Meanwhile, imports are stagnant because 
industry is not growing fast, and there are few 
domestic buyers for foreign currrencdes, even 
'though the units are off on bow much money 
business executives and tourists can buy for 
traveling abroad. 

The problems of the wealthy — in a coun- 
try whore half the population still is too poor 
to eat property — is just one of tbe paradoxes 
created by the three-year-old reforms that 
have swept away government controls to 
make industry more competitive. 

It is not just that too much money is flow- 
ing in, say observers. Rather, it is the wrong 
kind of money. The government had hoped 
that when it ended its monopolies on heavy 
industries and opened them to foreign invest- 
ment, outside money would finance new 
dams, cal refineries, and steel plants. 

“But foreign direct investment in the core 
sector is just a trickle,” said N. Qvandramo- 
han, an editor with Business India, a leading 
fortnightly. “If the pie chart does not change 


in two years, then I will say that tbe reforms 
are not working.” 

Of the $4.7 billion that poured into India 
since the beginning of 199 3. only $600 million 
was direct investment. The rest went into 
stories. 

Of the little money that did go into indus- 
try, nearly all of it was directed toward quick- 
return businesses such as food processing, 
textiles and services. 

The World Bank, which has lent India $1-3 
billion over the past three years, has criticized 


Foreign-currency reserves 
are a record $16 billion. 


_ enough on 
iucation and allevi- 


tbe government for not 
building roads, primary i 
a ting poverty. 

At the same time, it has attacked the gov- 
ernment for overspending and building a 
budget deficit of 73 percent of gross domestic 
product “The central government deficit 
could endanger India’s economic prospects,” 
the Bank warned in a recent report 

■ Petrochemical Firm Hans Equity Issue 

India’s largest state-run petrochemicals 
company, hoping to ride a global upturn in 
petrochemical prices, has revived a plan to 
tap offshore funds with a $100 milli on Euro- 
issue of equity, Reuters reported from Baro- 

da | India 

K.G. Raman a than, chairman of Indian 
Petrochemicals Corp_ said the company had 
already applied to the Indian government for 
permission. He said Goldman, Sachs & Co. 
would be tbe leading underwriter of the issue, 
which is expected to hit the market some time 
later this year. 

Last year, Indian Petrochemicals became 
the first state-run company to plan an off- 
shore equity issue, but it was forced to shelve 
it after its domestic shares dropped. 


Taiwan’s Engineers Coming Home to Roost 


By Edward A. Gargan . 

Nw Ytrk Tima Service 

HSINCHU, Taiwan — By 
nost measures, Wu Tao-yuan 
had it made. As head erf a re- 
search and development lab for 
international Business Machjens 
2orp. in Saloon Valley, he whs at 
he peak of his profession. 

But still, he was itchy. *Td 
jeen al IBM long enough,” said 
V4r. Wu. who holds a doctorate 
a electrical engineering from 
Stanford University. “I saw 
hat my future was hmited there 
because of the nature of the 
jeast. Taiwan presented a much 
greater opportunity!" or me.” 

It was to here that Mr. Wu 
ind hundreds of other Amen- 
San-educated Taiwan engineers 
;amc, to the higMechnoLogy 
»mpanies grouped in an indos- 
rial park and processing zone 
seated by the Taiwan goveoir 
sent 15 years ago to cnccrarage 
he growth of applied science 
ind technology. . 

After a slow and hesitant 
lart, tbe Science-Based Indus- 
rial Park, home to 150 higb- 
echnology businesses, generat- 
'd nearly $5 b3tion in sales last 
rear, propelling Taiwtm into 
he ranks erf major high-tech 
xmntries. Taiwan, for example, 
las about half the world market 
n scanners and monitors, 
ibout 30 percent of the market 
n network cards and terminals, 
md about 10 percent of the 
xrsonal computer market 

The park is also changing the 
rind or goods Taiwan makes. In 
he last decade; much of the 
abor-in tensive, low-tech indus- 
rics such as clothing, shoe and 
oy manufacturing that spurred 
fai wan’s economic growth 
lave been displaced by higb- 
ech industries, which make up 


tkm of integrated circuits, spe- 
cialized telecommunications 
equipment, optical-electronics 
and, less successfully, a handful 

of biotechnology companies. 

While the companies here are 
privately owned and managed, 
Taiwan ’,s National Science 
Council has poured hundreds 
of nrinkms of dollars into the 
park to buy l™d r erect build- 


scan and edit color photographs 
and transparencies. 

Mr. Wu said his company’s 
success had been enhanced by 
conditions in the park. “We en- 
joy alt kinds of benefits,” he 
said. “The customs service is 
here to simplify imports and 
exports. We enjoy a five-year 
tax holiday. All the banks are 
here. The skill pool is here. 


After a slow and hesitant start, Taiwan’s 
Science-Based Industrial Park, home to 150 
high-technology businesses, generated 
neady $51)iRu)ii in sales last year. - 


t country’s exports. 

“I think the park is very im- 
rtant for Taiwan, especially 


it of the Taiwan Institute erf 
anomic Research, a griva te 
eaxch and consulting ram. 
It took five or six years real- 
Lo see a response. But then it 
rted to demonstrate good 
formance.”

“We do not interfere in the 
daily business of the compa- 
nies,” Ml Hsich said. “They 
are on their own. But if the 
company would, tike govern- 
ment equity, the government 
uoD be willmg to chip in. Bui 
actnatiy, - this was significant 
only in the early history of the 
pan. Sentiment has changed, 
and the government role, is di- 
minishing.” 

For Mr. Wu, president of 
Umax Data Systems; which de- 
signs and makes higfr-rcsahition 
color scanners, tins chattenge of 
succeeding or fading without 
government intervention helped 
toe him to a company that was 
floundering when he joined it 
three years ago. 

“The company was static,” 
he erolained, “It really needed 
to take off. To grow it, to be- 
come a full-fledged market 
to have a consistent, 
-range strategy, it really 
' someone with some ex- 
perience and seasoning. I 
looked at the management and 
the product and said-tins is the 
place far me.” 

Today, Umax has 11 percent 
of the vrorkTs scanner market, 
trailing only Hewlett-Packard 
Co. which dominates the busi- 
ness with about 30 percent of 
worldwide sales. Tbe ttod-tog- 
est scanner maker, Microtek In- 
ternational, is another company 
based in the science park. Tai- 
wan is the wockTs tagest manu- 
facturer of scanners. 

With a Umax scanner, a user 
can feed up to 25 documents 
into the machine, which will 
yaw each page aim convert it 
into a text-editable file in a vari- 
ety of formats used is popular 

word-processing programs. The 
scanners can also be used to 



There are two very good bilin- 
gual schools, Chinese and Eng- 
lish. All these integrated ser- 
vices and the people resources 
are one of the reasons to be in 
the park.” 

when he arrived in 1991, 
Umax bad annual sales of 
about $10 million. This year, 
Mr. Wu said, sales are expected 
to reach $90 million, up nearly 
50 percent over last year’s reve- 
nue of $62 million. “We’ve 
grown from 70 people in 1991 
to 450 people today," he said. 

Umax’s success is typical of 
most companies in the park, 
said Mr. Hrieh, the paries direc- 
tor, but that success is creating 
tremendous strains on the park. 

“We are now looking at eight 
new companies who want to 
come in,” he said. “But one of 
the most serious stumbling 
blocks is to find land. Land is 
not only a monetary issue but a 
political issue. Land is very 
hard to come by. It used to be a 
million dollars per hectare 
($15,000 per acre). Now, it's 20 
million.” 

The park has been so success- 
ful that foreign companies have 
set up operations here, malting 
up Beany one quarter of the 
companies in the park. Alto- 
gether there are 30 American 
operations here, inducting sub- 
sidiaries of AT&T Carp, and 
Litton Industries Inc. 

But more than American 
companies, it is the engineers 
trained in the United States that 
have made the park, and Tai- 
wan’s high-tech industries, a suc- 
cess. Fran only a trickle in the 
mid-1980s, the retu rn of gradu- 
ate engineers from American 
universities has increased, with 
851 returning in 1992 and 1,004 
Iasi year, all to create, manage or 
ovssee the technology of the 
park’s companies. Altogether, 


73, or almost half, of all the 
companies here were started by 
Taiwan engineers who returned 
from the united Stales. 

Yau You-wen was one of the 
1,004 who returned home last 
year. “I was at Stanford in ap- 
plied physics.” he said, “and 
went on to Honeywell, and later 
to IBM. What brought me bade 
were the opportunities. The gap 
is disappearing between the 
U-S. and Taiwan.” 

Now, Mr. Yau is tbe director 
of quality and reliability at the 
Taiwan Semiconductor Manu- 
facturing Co n the largest fabri- 
cator of integrated circuits in 
Taiwan. 

Mr. Yau said the corporate 
culture of Taiwan Semiconduc- 
tor was more American than 
Taiwanese. In part, this is be- 
cause the company has an Amer- 
ican president, Donald W. 
Brooks, and because of the pre- 
dominance of UJSL customers. 
Indeed, the company’s success 
has come not from creating its 


own chips but from building the 
factories and the technology to 
manufacture designs for inte- 
grated circuits created elsewhere, 
usually in the United States. 

“Relatively speaking," Mr. 
Yau said, “the United States 
has companies that do excellent 
design. But they don’t have the 
capital or willingness to invest 
in a fabricating facility. We 
don’t have our own brand- 
name products. We manufac- 
ture them for other designers. 
Taiwan just doesn't have 
enough experience in circuit de- 
sign yet It’s starting to show 
up, but it's slow." 

Last year, Taiwan Semicon- 
ductor had sales of $473 mil- 
lion, with profit of $165 million. 
The importance of American 
chip design companies, many of 
which are in Silicon Valley, was 
demonstrated by the fact that 
61 percent of the company’s to- 
tal revenue was based on sales 
to tbe United States.

BHP Plans 
Chile-Bolivia 
Gas Pipeline 

Agmtx Fmna-Prau 

SYDNEY — Broken Hill 
Proprietary Co. has signed a deal 
to build an international gas 
pipeline as pan of a mayor power 
generation project in Latin 
America; BHP said Tuesday. 

The deal would be the first 
large project to tbe company's 
recently created affiliate BHP 
Power, according to Ted Hodg- 
son. BHFs manager of strategic 
communications. 

Under the plan, BHP would 
be the lead developer of a 1,100 
kilometer (690-mile) gas pipeline 
running from sou them Bolivia 
to northern Chile, and of related 
power- generation projects. 

“The primary market for the 
gas would be new gas-fired 
power plants which would be 
constructed during the next two 
to five years and connected into 
the northern Chile power grid,” 
BHP said. 

After BHP posted record net 
profits of 13 billion Australian 
dollars (5944 million) for the 
year ended May 31. Managing 
Director John Prescott said the 
company intended to diversify 
into power generation. 

He then said BHP had estab- 
lished a group to hunt down 
opportunities, particularly in 
Asia and South America, where 
high returns were possible. 

BHP, the largest Australian 
company, said BHP Power had 
signed the deal with the state oil 
companies of Bolivia and Chile, 
Yacimientos Petroliferos Fis- 
cales Bolivianos and Empress 
Nacional de Petroleo. 

Mr. Hodgson said BHP hoped 
to develop natural gas sources in 
Bolivia for tbe project

splendors of nature. 

Conti crossed the line an in)' 
pressive 2 minutes 2 seconds 
ahead. That moved him up the 
ranks from 1 lib place to sixth 
and gave him a righ ting chance 
to finish second overall, the 
only big battle left before the 
Tour ends in Paris on Sunday. 

Conti, who rides for the 
Lampre team, was ecstatic 
about his performance. 

“It's a great victory for me, 
the greatest or my career,” he 
said. 

Nevertheless, he continued, 
he knows that he is a support 
rider and will return to that 
role, working for the team and 
not himself, in the mountainous 
days to come. 

But he will have something to 
remember when he is following 
his leader's orders. The Alpe 
d’Huez stage, with its long and 
steep rise up 22 switchbacks, 
usually attracts an enormous 
number of spectators, perhaps a 
quarter of a million, and is the 
day all climbers spend the win- 
ter dreaming about. 

His strategy was simple. Con- 
ti slipped into an early 14-man 
breakaway that built a lead of 
more than 8 min utes over two 
mountains rated second catego- 
ry, in an ascending scale of four 
to one in difficulty. 

Then, out of the low clouds 
that shrouded the Alps on Tues- 
day as the weather finally 
turned cool there stood Alpe 
d'Huez, rated beyond category. 
On the many twists of the 13,8- 


kilometer (8.5-mile) climb, 
Conti disposed of his compan- 
ions. 

In second place was Heman 
Buenahora, a Colombian with 
Relate. Third, 3:49 behind the 
winner, was Udo Bolls, a Ger- 
man with Telekom, in the same 
time as Alberto Elli, an Italian 
with GB-MG, who was fourth. 

Despite the turn in the 
weather, attrition continued to 
be a factor. Of the 189 riders 
who started the Tour on July 2, 
just 128 remain. Seven more 
dropped out Tuesday, victims 


The Alpe d’Huez 
stage is the day all 
climbers spend 
the winter dreaming 
abooL 


of fatigue brought on by a heal 
wave and the race’s rapid pace. 

Conti was timed in 6 hours 6 
minutes 45 seconds, an hourly 
average of 36.7 kilometers over 
the 224.5 kilometers from Val- 
rtas in the flatlands to Alpe 
d'Huez in the stratosphere. 

On the way there, Miguel In- 
durain, the Spaniard who rides 
for Banesto and is salting away 
his fourth successive victory in 
the Tour, lost 35 seconds of his 
huge lead. It is now down to 
7:21 over Richard Virenque, a 
Frenchman with Festina. He 
came in 11th on Tuesday, and 
Indurain was 12th. 

The Spaniard looked strong 
and untroubled coming up to 
the 1860-meter-high peak. On a 
speedy descent Monday, he 
nearly went over the edge of a 
mountain when his brakes 
locked and his front wheel skid- 
ded, so the loss of 35 seconds 
had to be taken in perspective. 


Beside Conti, the day’s gain- 
ers included Luc Leblanc, an- 
other Frenchman with Festina, 
who rose from fourth place to 
third; Marco Pantani, an Ital- 
ian with Carrera, who rose from 
sixth place to fifth, and Elli, 
who rose from 13th place to ' 
eighth. 

Those on the down staircase 
included Armand De Las Cue- 
vas, a Frenchman with Caszor- 
ama, who fell from third place 
to fourth; Vladimir Poulmkov, 
a Ukrainian with Carrera, who 
fell from fifth place to seventh, 
and Abraham Olano, a Span- 
iard with Mapei-Qas, who fell 
from 10th place to 16th. 

The main losers on the day, 
however, may have been the 
Dutch fans of professional bi- 
cycle racing. They usually flock 
to Alpe d’Huez, camping over- 
night: in its meadows, for a 
chance to cheer on their coun- 
trymen. And Dutch climbers 
have often responded with vic- 
tories. 

Not lately, though, and sure- 
ly not Tuesday. Enk Breukink, 
who rides for ONCE, was the 
first Dutchman to cross the 
hue, in 47th place, 13:44 behind 
Conti. 

Since that placing was not 
unexpected and since two of the 
few other Dutch climbers of 
note, Steven Rooks and Gert- 
Jan Theunisse, both of the 
TVM team, dropped out in the 
Pyrenees, many Dutch fans 
went elsewhere for their sum- 
mer vacations. 

The long road up to Alpe 
d'Huez was strangely devoid of 
the red, white and blue bands of 
the Dutch flag and the encour- 
aging cry of “Hup, hup” was 
rarely heard. On the other hand, 
for once there were few rowdies 
in the crowd and the riders had 
a dear passage to the finish. I

"We’re not about to re-invent the wheel here,” Fehr said. 
“That’s not what we’re setting out to do.” 

Said Richard Ravitch, chief negotiator for the owners, "It 
ain’t gonna fly.” 

In essence, the owners want to impose a salary cap — a 
limit on player payrolls — and the players don't. The owners 
have said they are ready to declare an impasse to implement 
their new system in the offseason, and the players have said 
they’ll call a strike this season as a pre-emptive measure. 

The only question seems to be Mien the strike will begin 
and how long it will last. Fehr said a formal strike date will be 
set within the next two weeks, and sources said the uzuon was 
considering everything from Aug. 16 to Sept. 30. 

The players say they’ll go for an earlier date if they believe a 
settlement was possible that would save the playoffs and World 
Series. But if they're convinced the owners are unified and 


determined to get a salary cap, they may wait until the final

There were cheers / or the players and 
some jeers for the coach as the Italian 
soccer team returned home Tuesday, addle 
' tens of thousands turned out to welcome 
the Brazilian squad in Recife, Brazfl. 

Some 1 ,000 flag-waving fans greeted the 
' I talians at Leonardo da Vmti airport after 
their flight from Los Angeles. They held up 
; signs that read "still invincible” and 
"thanks anyway” 

• The Brazilians, winners of an unprece- 
dented fourth World Cup title, arrived to a 
red-carpet official weteome and a rapturous 
' reception from millions of ec static fans. 

In a marathon day of celebrations, the 
coastal city of Recife in northeast Pernam- 
. buco state was first to greet the returning 
■ heroes after their 3-2 victory mi penalties 
in the World Cup final Sunday. Thousands 
■‘if people, many waving national flags or 
wearing clothes or hats in the national 
. colors of gjreeh and ydlow; crowded the' ' 
•city streets to cheer the squad in as 18- 
. kilometer (11-mile) victory parade. . 

- In Rome, a group of fans waring ban- 
ners for the Italian dub Lazio and chant- 
ing “Signori” bedded Arrigo Sacchi, the 


coach. In a controversial decision, Sacchi 
did not play Giuseppe Sjgnreri t the Lazio 
striker and league's top scorer, in the finaL 

“They’re ignorant and I’ve had it up 
here to with ignorant people,” Sacchi said. 
“I have no reason to be bitter. Brazil 
played better than we did and so they 
deserved to win die World Cup.” 

The team’s star striker. Roberto Baggio, 
whose missed penally kick sealed Italy’s 
defeat in the first World Cup decided by a 
penalty shoot-out, was one of the few play- 
ers who smiled as he descended from the

the police escorted Him away. 

Several players, including the midfield- 
ers Ditto Baggio and Roberto Donadoni, 
still seemed m shock over the loss. 

Donadoni, who frowned most of the 
time and hung his head low, said some fans 
were ungrateful. 

.“We could have been spared/some of 
these remarks," Donadoni said, referring 
to criticism of Sacdri. 

In Sofia, a huge and boisterous crowd 
welcomed the Bulgarian team.

Iraemuknal Herald Tribune 

P ASADENA California — You can’t begin to 
understand how tacky the World Cup is until 
it’s all over. Everyone had gone home but the 
tents were still up, flapping white plastic blotted 
with soot in the cloudy morning, and signs of 
clashing colors and wire fencing and portable 
toilets and cables beading everywhere. 

So the 15th World Cup was over, the champi- 
onship decided in favor of Brazil by penalty 
kicks, which was —

Nicklaus and Thomsen I ^ 

Tom Watson off 

the Augusta National after 72 even holes and 
ordering them to settle The Masters at the Putt- 
Putt minia ture golf course on Route 17 some- 
where outside the city. 

Mr. Nicklaus will he playing the red ball Mr. 
Watson, , playing the blue bah, will have honors. On 
the first note, the alligator's mouth shall be consid- 
ered out oj bounds. 

Sepp Blatter, the FIFA general secretary who 
is the game’s greatest protector on behalf of the 
international soccer federation, said Monday 
that penalty locks were preferable to playing the 
championship indefinitely until a winning goal is 
produced. “We don’t want to have a ‘sudden 
death,’ ” he said “To play indefinitely in these 
conditions, in this kind erf heat, we might have a 
sudden death on the field.” 

Why not allow more substitutions as the 
match progresses? 

“This is not in the culture of our game, to allow 
more than two substitutions,” he said. “Other- 
wise, we would have two different games.” 

They don’t now? They play 52 matches and 
decide the world champion for the next four 
years like this? 

“/ think I had Jock beat when he came to the 
windmill at 16 needing to make up a skot," said 
Watson, who became The Masters champion with 
an 18-hole score of 25, II -under par. “ The wind- 
mill blades were turning a lot faster than normal — 
surety a lot more quickly than I've ever seen them 
turn — and really it was a tough putt for anyone 
under those circumstances. ” 

“Everybody knows if there’s a weakness in my 
ga me, it's the windmill ” Nicklaus scad. 

FIFA plans a 30-minute, sudden-death extra 
time for the 1998 World Cup in France, but 
Blatter said that if the score was still tied, penalty 
kicks would be used. 

T HE AMERICANS have much bigger issues 
with which to deal. FIFA is making it clear 
that the United States is on its own now as far as 
developing the game The U.S. Soccer Federa- 
tion president, Alan Rothenberg, still has not 
committed to governing the 12-team profession- 
al league, which is to lock off next spring. Fran- 
chises have been awarded to only seven cities: 
Boston; Long Island, New York; East Ruther- 
ford, New Jersey; Washington; Columbus. 
Ohio; Los Angeles, and San Jose, California. The 
league has a TV deal with ABC and ESPN, the 
U.S. World Cup broadcasters, but it doesn’t have 
any of the American players under contract. 
Only the goalkeeper, Tony Meola, has promised 
to remain in the United States next season. 

“Virtually all of the players will either stay or 
come back to play in the MLS next year,” Roth- 
enberg predicted. If that’s the case, then his plan 
must be to take the best American players on 
loan from their foreign clubs in the middle of the 
U.S. season. It’s unimaginable that they would 
be willing to risk their careers when they are most 


marketable in order to play in a league that will 
average 12.000 fans per game and miniscule TV 
ratings in its first year, by Rothenberg’s own 
calculations. Indeed, why should they come back 
when Rothenberg hasn't committed to it? 

In any case, the growth of professional soccer 
in the united States can only be a portion of the 
plan. England, for all the tradition of its famous 
league, wasn’t able to qualify for the 24-team 
World Cup finals. The reason lies in the teaching 
of its children. Young soccer players in England 
are taught to run and to play hard and to win. but 
they are not taught how to play. It’s a worldwide 
dilemma 

“Our technical study group has seen in this 
exciting, attacking style of play promoted by this 
World Cup. that there is a lack of skill and 
technique among the players.” Blatter said. “So 
we are going to go back to all of the associations 
and tell them to attach more emphasis to individ- 
ual skill and technique. It can be done only in the 
beginning, when the players are learning to kick 
the balL It can’t be done later.” 

“1 am sure that the message will be received by 
everybody — especially in the U5.. where the 
game has received the letter of noblesse, or at least 
an appreciation from the public,” Blatter added. 

I N TRUTH, while the World Cup played out 
better in the United Slates than anyone could 
have imagined, the majority of Americans will be 
glad to see it leaving town. They didn't ask for it 
to come here, it was entirely new and foreign, 
and it was shoved down a lot of throats. 

If something is going to be made of this World 
Cup, it will have to start with the people who love 
the game. A lot of the soccer education in Ameri- 
ca comes directly from books and videos, as 
parents and coaches have to learn the game 
before they can teach it to the children. So this is 
a wonderful opportunity. Rather than teach soc- 
cer as a game of rules — of defenders playing 
defense and each player sticking to his assigned 
role — soccer should instead be taught as a game 
of expression and creativity. 

The U.S. federation should create books and 
videos emphasizing the game’s beauty. Use high- 
lights from this World Cup to leach kids the 
bicycle kick almost converted by the American 
Mtucelo Balboa against Colombia. Teach them 
the bead fakes of Rom&rio and the quick, poking 
passes of Roberto Baggio. Teach them to play 
however they wish; don't criticize them for taking 
the sorts of risks that create exponential growth. 

If there is a problem with American soccer at 
the grass-roots level, it's that the rules are taken 
too literally. The ball must be marked exactly 
where the infraction took place and every foul is 
called according to the book. It’s very much a 
repressive game in this country. 

What the game needs in order to achieve self- 
sufficiency is a generation of players who are 
self-sufficient, ll needs its Arnold Palmer, its 
Julius Erving, who plays with the sort of confi- 
dence and imag ination that creates a following. 
If the Americans could find and sculpt that one 
player, then others would be inspired around 
him, and the game would take off. 

The World Cup surely has created a path for 
soccer here. Now the important question is 
where that path leads. Will we see in the next 
generation a fleet of sleek Americans exuding a 
uniquely American creativity — a creativity that 
until now has been left to basketball — or will 
the coming generation of World Cup boomers be 
taught to prevent goals, not score them? 

The latter is the safer, easier route for Ameri- 
can soccer. The former is its only hope.

Brazil May Be Home, but Europe’s Where Money Is 


By Christopher Oarey 

New York Tima Semite 

PASADENA California — When the 
last Brazilian to win the World. 
Cup returned to Brazil from Mexico in 
the ■awnmer of 1970, they were unques- 
tionably going borne. 

Pete, Rivefino, the playmaker Gerson 
and all the other stars woe bom in 
Brazil, raised in Brazil and earned their 
livings in Brazil playing for their na- 
tion’s top dribs. 

Twenty-four years later, that is no 


longer the case. 

Make no mistake. Rrimario, Bebeto* 
Dunga and the other members of this 
championship team are as Brasilian as 
their beloved predecessors. Bat most of 
the players trim embarked Tuesday on a 
victory tour of thesr sprawling, diverse 
nation will soon be boarding planes 
headed for another continent: Europe. 

Eight erf the 11 men who started 
against Italy, including all of Brazil's 
mam attractions, start for European 
dubs. RomArio, Bebeto and Macro Sflva 
play in Spain; Jorginho and Dunga play 


in Germany; goalkeeper G audio Taffarel 
played far Reggiana in Italy last season 
and is Kkriy to jean another European 
.dub in the weeks to come: 

South America might have won om on 
Sunday, but it is Europe where the most 
competitive soccer is played; Europe 
where the highest salaries are paid and 
Europe where the tactical trends are es- 
tablished that shape the game at the 
World Cup level 

In recent years, many Brazilians 
reached the cohdnsion that all this Eu- 
ropean influence, with its emphasis on 
defense, was negative for their national 
team, that it inevitably nibbled away at 
the imagination of their European- 
based stars and robbed the ride of its 
singular, attacking style. 

But this year’s team, under its often- 
. beleaguered coach, Carlos Alberto Par- 
rma, managed to bridge the cultural 
divide: marrying world-class -defense 
with the virtuosity of Bebeto and Ro- 
m&rio up-front What it lacked was a 
playmaker, winch explains why the 
world’s best striker combination came 


up with only one goal in Brazil’s last two 
games 

“The best lesson to take from this 
World Cup is that you need organiza- 
tion, on and off the odd,” Paneira said. 

Br azil, to the occasional consternation 
of Pete and its CamavaMoving fans, was 
organized. But it is doubtful that Brazil's 
success will reshape soccer worldwide. 
Though they were superb and entertain- 
ing technicians, there was little novel in 
their approach or scheme. 

“I thmk Brazil once again will create 
something of a trend with their flair, 
skills and running with the ball, which is 
great because we all love to watch that 
land of individual play,” said Andy 
Roxborough, the t e c hni cal director of 
the Union of European Football Associ- 
ations and a member of FIFA's techni- 
cal study group. 

“But I personally dunk that tea m s 
KVc Italy and Sweden will have more 
influence on the approach to the game.” 

What Italy and Sweden represent is 
what AC Mnan represents: a movement 
away from the German model, with its 


sweeper and man-to-man g u a rdin g, to- 
ward a reliance on flat back lines, zone 
defenses and constant movement for- 
ward to reduce the opponent’s room to 
operate. 

Brazfl embraced this philosophy dur- 
ing qualifying, but in the knockout 
round in the United States, Parreira of- 
ten used five defenders, pushing mid- 
fielder Mauro Silva back into a central 
defender’s or quasi-sweeper’s role. 

“They must have adapted because of 
personnel and tactical considerations,” 
Roxborough said. “I have to give Carlos 
great credit for bang brave enough to 
make such decisions. I talked to him last 
year, and be told me that he was dying to 
bring bade the traditional Brazilian style, 
but the problem was dying to strike a 
balance.” 

The history books will show that Par- 
reira and his players succeeded where 
more flamboyant and fractious Brazil- 
ian sides had failed. They did it with 
discipline, camaraderie and flashes of 
genius from Bebeto and, above all, Ro- 
mirio, who scored five goals. 


For 9 98, FIFA Plans 
Sudden-Death Format 

The Associated Press 

PASADENA California — The World Cup win have a 
sudden-death overtime format by the next edition, in 1998, 
but it could still end in a shootout, soccer officials said. 

After penalty kicks derided the World Cup for t he fir st 
rime on Sunday, Sepp Blatter, general secretary of FIFA 
world soccer's governing body, said changes would be made 
to the overtime system before the 1998 World Cup in France. 

He said Brazil’s 3-2 victory over Italy in a penalty shootout 
after the iMms had played 120 minutes to a 0-0 tie had left a 
hollow feeling among players, coaches and officials and that 
something must be done. 

“We are not happy and the teams are not happy to go to 
penalty kicks, but we have to have a winner," Blatter said. 

Blatter said FIFA would study various alternatives and 
have a new system in place by 1998. He said the replacement 
probably would be modeled on the “Golden Goal.” FIFA’s 
version of the sudden-death overtimes of football and hockey. 

FIFA implemented sbootouts when it went to knockout 
rules in the later rounds of the cup in 1986. While the shootout 
has derided several quarterfinal and semifinal matches since 
then, it never before had derided the champion. 


Pete Sampras, the 
world’s top-ranked man, 
has withdrawn from th® 
^Washington D.C. Tennis 
j Classic because of tendom- 
tis in his ankle, an imury be 
sustained at Wimbledon 
and aggravated last week- 
end dunng a Davis Cup tie. 

Sampras split his Davis 
Cup singles matches m the 
Netherlands last weekend 
in the United States’ 3-2 
victory, losing on ^Sunday 
to Richard Krajicek.

Advice for the Vicar 


By Russell Baker 

D EAR PONTIFF: Wel- 
come to the booh trade. It 
needs a touch of class, and 
you’re just the author to pro- 
vide tL 

I hope you won’t think it 
pushy if I pass along a few tips. 
Believe me, Your Holiness, I 
wish somebody had done it for 
me od my first book. 

Right off, you’re going to 
find your publisher wants you 
to get out and sell your book. 
It’s not enough that a writer has 
to write his book: nowadays, he 
is also expected to sdl it. 

A lot of authors deal with this 
by hiring somebody else to 
write the book. Hus frees them 
to take acting classes so they 
will know how to do a sma- 
sheroo sales job on TV. 

Ghost prose is not for you, 
dear Pope. The trick is to make 
your publisher do the selling. 
You've made a good start on 
this by getting that big money 
commitment. Six or seven mil- 
lion dollars up front, if the pa- 
pers are right 

Sure, you are passing it all 
through to good causes. But the 
point is, no matter who’s get- 
ting the money, the publisher is 
laying out wbat for a publisher 
amounts to a banker’s ransom. 
He has to get that money back, 
or else, which means he had 
better get out there and sell 
your book himself. 

□ 

If you'd settled for peanuts 
— an advance of, say, fifteen or 
twenty thousand simoleons _ — 
the publisher could have said, 
“If you don’t want to get out 
there and sdl your own book 
it’s no skin off my nose, J. P.” 

And tel you die in the book- 
shops after selling the tiny first 
printing he issued to recover his 
peanuts. 

O.K-, he’s going to lean on 
you to sell it anyhow. He’s go- 
ing to say, look, he’s put up 
those millions so you owe it to 
him to be a good guy. 

And you are a good guy, 
right? A man doesn't get where 
you are without being a good 
guy. So you're going to tell the 


publisher. “Well, all right, 1T1 
do a little selling.” 

Selling means performing on 
television. The theory is that 
everybody in America is so 
busy watching television that 
they don’t have lime to read, so 
the only way to let them know 
you've got something more for 
them not to read is the tube. 

If you go on the breakfast 
shows, keep it short: a few lines 
so thoroughly rehearsed you 
can remember them no matter 
how terrified you are. Keep it 
casual too: call the interviewers 
Charlie, Hany. BiyanL Tiy not 
to look at the technicians when 
they make slashing hand ges- 
tures at their throats. 

□ 

Now you want to look re- 
laxed, no matter hew tense you 
are. Not looking relaxed makes 
viewers nervous. 

I hear you say, “You’re talk- 
ing to a fellow who can stay 
cool as a cucumber while talk- 
ing to 100.000 souls in St Pe- 
ter’s Square.” But believe me. 
Your Holiness, TV is not St 
Peter’s Square. Cool as a cu- 
cumber doesn’t work on TV. 
On TV it’s tight as a drum that 
does the trick. To look relaxed, 
get tense. Sit up on the edge of 
the chair. Arch your back until 
it screams. Whatever you do, 
Holiness, do not sit back and 
relax in the chair. 

All right, once the publisher 
discovers you really are a good 
guy and, what’s better, also a 
good sport he’s going to whee- 
dle you into bookstore appear- 
ances. Here’s what will happen: 

You go to a vast mall, find 
the bookshop between a shoe 
store and Victoria’s Secret and 
introduce yourself to a cleric 
who’s never heard of you but 
knows where to find the manag- 
er, who puts a table out in mall 
traffic, dumps books on it and 
pats up a sign saying you will 
sign books lor the next hour. 
While you sit there not selling a 
sin gl e book thousands of peo- 
ple walk by wondering silently 
if you're somebody famous. 

This. Your Holiness, is the 
book trade with the bark off.

INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE, WEDNESDAY, JULY 


Vitebsk Struggles to E 


By Lee Hocks tader 

Washington Past Serna 

T 7TTEBSK, Belarus — One day in 
V 1962, an extraordinary letter ar- 
rived at the Vitebsk museum for cul- 
ture and history, a pretty pink build- 
ing that was left standing, 
miraculously, after the city w as pul- 
verized in World War II. 

The letter was from a Soviet scholar 
in France who had been in touch with 
Marc Chagall, then in his nud-70s. 
This alone was unusual. Chagall, who 
had left his home town of Vitebsk in 
1922 to live in France, was a nonper- 
son as far as Moscow was concerned. 
As an emigre, a Jew and a painter 
whose work did not celebrate the he- 
roic triumphs of the Soviet Socialist 
people, Chagall was politically, ethni- 
cally and artistically incorrect 


If- f. firTV 


the content was astonishing. Chagall 
had never forgotten Vitebsk. It was 
where he first fell in love, married and 
learned to draw and paint. Many of 
his early canvases are scenes of Vi- 
tebsk or what he called its “special 
sky,” where he conjured soaring 
brides, flying cows, dancing fiddlers 
and airborne violins. 

Now Chagall, relaying his message 
through the scholar, wanted to know: 
Could he give some of his work back 
to the city that had inspired him so 
many years ago? 

Yevgenia Klchina, who worked in 
the museum’s art department, saw the 
letter and got excited. With some oth- 
ers in ho 1 office, she drafted a letter 
describing postwar Vitebsk, a city of 
grimy apartment blocks that was al- 
most unrecognizable as the 1,000- 
year-old town of wooden houses and 
graceful cathedrals of Chagall’s youth. 
“We said we had set up an art depart- 
ment, and would be happy if we could 
have the Chagall pieces,” she said. 

Then Kuchina mentioned the letter 
to a member of the city’s Co mmunis t 
Party committee. “He said, ‘Wfaat? 
And you are going to do this on your 
own, without any permission? How 
could this even occur to youT " She 
appealed to a regional party official, 
who turned her down. 

Now, three decades later, the city is 
struggling to reclaim what it lost 
Most suspect that Vitebsk’s bond with 
Gha gan, whodiedin 1985 at the age of 
97, is irretrievably gone. Bat a few are 
convinced that it is not too late; that 
Vitebsk and Chagall can reconnect. 

It won’t be easy. 


On a bluff high above the river that 
winds through Vitebsk stands an old 
red brick house of two stories. For- 
merly used for apartments, the build- 
ing was converted two years ago into 
the Marc Chagall Museum, although 
it contains no original works by Cha- 
gall. Officially, the museum is owned 
and operated by the city, but in truth 
it is the personal project and passion 
of the director, Lyubov Bazan, 37. 

Bazan grew up in Vitebsk during 
the pre-Goibachev period of stagna- 
tion, when the name of Chagall was all 
but unknown here. It was only as an 
an student that she discovered that 
Chagall was bom in Vitebsk, the son 
of a Yiddish-speaking manual laborer. 

She was astonished. M I started ask- 
ing people, older people, about Cha- 
gall/’ she said. “They said he had 


a traitor to his motherland. 

Chagall was once the city’s arts 
commissar but the one or two original 
works he left in the city were lost in 
1941 when the Germans swept into 
Vitebsk, occupying it for three years. 
The house where the artist grew up 
was still standing in a quiet neighbor- 
hood that was once the Jewish ghetto, 
but Lhcre was nothing to distinguish it. 
The school and museum he ran had 
been turned into a computer center. 

In a country consumed by xenopho- 
bia and anti-Semitism, it was chancy 
even to speak about Cha gall . 

Finally in 1988, as the system began 
to crumble, Bazan was allowed to pur- 
sue her interest in Chagall openly, and 
she began planning the museum. 

“When we arranged this exhibit, we 
faced a big problem because we have 
no original works of art,” said Bazan. 
“So we were producing from our 
hearts, our souls. And we needed- an 
imaginative way to show Chagall’s 
work, his composition, his coloring, 
this fairy tale quality to hts art. We 
wanted to present a general mood. It 
was the only way out, to show some- 
thing of Chagall when we didn't have 
CThag aTl himself.” 

The result is modest but appealing. 
Some of Chagall's paintings with a 
Vitebsk theme have been copied right 
on the walls and ceilings of the muse- 
um. One of them is “Red Roofs,” a 
work from the 1950s in which the 
artist, palette in hand, bows low to the 
city as he is presented with a bouquet 
of flowers. There are two lithographs, 
donated by a museum in Germany. 
Old chairs, a samovar, an oil lamp, a

Lyubov Bazan and exhibits in Vitebsk's Mari: 


dock and a violin are suspended in 
mid-air, as if mfHghL On the wall is a 
poem by Chagall, in his handwriting, 
dedicated to Bella, his first wife and 
the bride who is soaring with him 
above Vitebsk in his early paintings. 

Besides the museum, there are a few 
signs of Chagall m today’s Vitebsk. 
On Pokrovsky Street, where Chagall 
grew up. a statue of the -artist was 
erected in 1992. His house, too, has 
been fenced off, its inhabitants recent- 
ly evicted, with a small plaque on the 
wall saying Chagall Hred there. 

There is talk of making it, too, into 
a museum, furnished, presumably, in 
period style. But nobody knows who 


swh a project Vitebsk, 
Eke most of Belarus, is broke. / : 

But Chagall's devotees axe stfll hop- 
ing that somehow, from somewhere.

worker wtioTried bfift failed towspoad

ago, there is only bitterness and regret.
