Rabin and Arafat Meet 
In Cairo to Work Out 
Last-Minute Differences 

Compiled by Qur Staff From Dispatches 

JERUSALEM — The Israeli Army has light- 
ened its “open-fire” orders in the occupied 
territories to avoid shooting armed Palestinian 
police officers who will be deployed under self- 
rule, security sources said Tuesday. 

About 1 .000 Palestinian police officers are to 
move into the self-rule areas of Gaza and the 
West Bank town of Jericho following the ex- 
pected signing in Cairo on Wednesday of an 
autonomy accord between Israel and (he Pales- 
tine Liberation Organization. 

Soldiers will no longer be allowed to open 
nre on armed Palestinians at wflB, the sources 

“They wfl] be able to shoot only after identi- 
fying the type of weapon and the intentions of 
the person bearing arms," said a senior military 
source, quoted in the newspaper Yedioih Ah- 
ronoth. Tf the armed person has no intention 
of shooting and his behavior is not suspicious, 
he cannot be shot” 

Under the autonomy agreement, to be signed 
by Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin of Isradand

evacuate all military bases in the self-rule areas 
and hand them over to a Palestinian police

UN Admits Serb Pullout Is 'Unresolved’ 

By Roger Cohen 

yen: York Tima Semcr 

SARAJEVO. Bcsnia-Herzegovina — Ten 
days after Serbian forces were supposed lo have 
complied with a NATO ultimatum to withdraw 
from Gorazde's city center, the top UN official 
in the former Yugoslavia acknowledged Tues- 
day that problems remained over their compli- 

“We still have some unresolved questions 
over Gorazde," the United Nations official. 
Yasustai Akashi, said here after meeting with 
Haris Silajdzic, the prime minister of the Mus- 
lim-led Bosnian goveramenL 

Mr. Silajdzic is adamant that Bosnian peace 
ia|lc«i will not resume in earnest until Serbian 
forces are removed from NATO’s ihree-kilome- 
ler "exclusion zone” around Gorazde. 

Over the past week, UN military officials 
have at first denied the presence of (he Serbian 
militia, then said they were no more than a 
handful, then described them as policemen, and 
finally conceded that there were 100 of the 

armed Serbs and that they constituted a prob- 

After meeting Mr. Silajdzic. Mr. Akashi went 
to the headquarters of the Bosnian Serbs in Pale 
and said afterward that the Serbs seemed "seri- 
ous" about compliance. He added that be had 
discussed the issue of the presence "of a Serbian 
police element in Gorazde for a transitional 

However, (here was no indication that the 
conflict bad been resolved and it appeared that 
peace talks with a group of international diplo- 
mats scheduled for Thursday would have scant 
chance of advancing.

UN military spokesmen. Western officials and 
relief workers have provided widely divergent 
accounts of tbe situation in the beleaguered 
town, which has been sealed to journalists by 
the Serbs who surround it 

For the UN command in Sarajevo, the essen- 
tial aim appears to have been the avoidance of 
NATO air strikes that might endanger its 
16,000 personnel in Bosnia and cause an escala- 
tion of the Bosnian War. 

Thus the situation in Gorazde — skirmishes 
and sniper fire notwithstanding — has been 
characterized by UN military spokesmen as 
having returned more or less to normal. 

The Serbian militia are said lo be protecting 
Serbian civilians who have been brought back 
into the town. Some of them are occupying 
houses that almost certainly belonged to Serbs 
before the war started two years ago. Nev erthe- 
less, the armed Serbs are in violation of the 
exclusion zone. 

The Bosnian government is furious about the 
presence of the militia in the town. 

"The situation in Gorazde demonstrates that 
the UN force here has no credibility, so it hard 
to believe in the international community as 
mediators," Bosnia's vice president. Ejup 
Ganic, said in an interview this week. 

Perhaps more importantly. NATO keeps tell- 
ing the United Nations that its aerial surveil- 
lance shows that Serbian compliance with

THE HAGUE — Troubled by 

an influx of foreigners, accelerating 
job losses and cuts in cherished 
social welfare programs. Dutch 
voters on Tuesday inflicted the 
worst electoral defeat in this centu- 
ry on the traditional governing 
power, the Christian Democrats. 

liie first nauonai ejections since 
1989 in the Netherlands, long re- 
garded as Western Europe’s most 
tolerant and socially progressive 
country, saw a sharp turn away 
from the mainstream governing 
parties and a breakthrough for rad- 
ical populist parties. 

While the Christian Democrats 
and the Labor Party, the junior 
party in the center-left government, 
suffered setbacks, upstart parties 
representing the extreme right and 
the interests of elderly citizens 
reaped a harvest of protest votes to 
capture a handful of seats in the 
new parliament. 

The results appeared to confirm 
a trend among West European de- 
mocracies. where the worst reces- 
sion in two decades, resentment to- 
ward foreigners and anxiety about 
future social benefits has provoked 
a backlash against governing par- 

While pleased to sec his party 
emerge as the country’s biggest po- 
litical force despite its loss or seats, 
the longtime Labor leader. Wtm 
Kok. warned that the rise of the far 
right in the Netherlands was an 
ominous development 

"This is a black page in Dutch 
history.” he said. “We must stop 
this poisonous campaign of haired 
toward foreigners by the right-wing 
extremists in our country. ’

Parliament Calls Gonzalez in Corruption Affair 

By Barry James 

International Herald Tribune 

Prime Minister Felipe Gonzalez, facing one of the worst 
crises since the Socialists came to power 1 1 years ago, has 
been called to testify before parliament in a corruption 
affair involving the former chief of the Civil Guard, 
parliamentary sources said Tuesday. 

Mr. GonzAlez was summoned to appear before the 
Chamber of Deputies on May 1 1. the sources told Agence 
France-Presse, after a meeting of spokesmen for all parties 
in the chamber. 

Earlier, in an interview in the newspaper El Mundo. 
Luis Rolddn Ibdhez, tbe former Civil Guard leader who is 
wanted on embezzlement charges, alleged thai he was 
being made a scapegoat for corruption in the government 
and the governing Socialist Party. 

Now a fugitive, be threatened to (ell all he knows about 
government corruption if be was brought back for trial in

Mr. Roldan had previously told a parliamentary com- 
mission that be had a lot of dirt — he used a ruder word — 
in his head about government corruption. 

His disappearance has put Mr. GonzAlez at the mercy of 
support from the 17-member bloc of Catalan nationalist 

Investigating magistrates want to know how Mr. Rol- 
dan parlayed his relatively modest Civil Guard salary into 
a fortune estimated at about $3.7 minion. He failed to turn 
up for court hearings last week, and is believed to be 
abroad, possibly in France or South America. 

After Mr. Roldan failed to appear, the interior minister. 
Antoni Asuncion, offered his resignation. He was sched- 
uled to appear before a commission of the Cories, or 
parliament, to explain how Mr. Roldan managed to evade 

Some political sources said Mr. Gonzalez was under 
mounting pressure to resign, amid speculation that he 
would be succeeded by the deputy prime minister, Nareis 
Serra y Sara. But sources close to Mr. Gonzalez said he 
was determined to stand firm until be knew the results of

positions in the land. The magazine Cambio 16 said 
recently that it had failed to find any evidence that Mr. 
Roldan, a taxi driver's son. had any of the academic 
qualifications he claimed as an an engineer and economist. 

He was appointed head of the Civil Guard in 1986 after 
establishing a reputation for toughness as civil governor in 
Aragon Province, where he was a prime target for the 
Basque separatist organization ETA 

He told B Mundo that other government departments 
were guilty of irregularities worse than those linked to the 
Civil Guard. He denied he took commissions or kept 
secret bank accounts in Switzerland.

Former President George Bush 
said it was time for a significant 
shift in VS. policy toward Haiti, 
“eluding abandoning support for 
Father Aristide, Reuters reported 
trom Houston, quoting a repot in 
the Houston Chronicle. 

Mr. Bush told the newspaper 
that it would be “a tremendous 
mistake; 1 to use U.S. ground forces 
m Haiti and that such an option 
should be ruled out. 

“Aristide has proved to be total- 
ly unable to help facilitate ids own

the hot-air balloon race in Hunterdon 
County that lured Bill Savage to suburbia’s 
new frontier. 

He had come to see odors lift md sweep 
across the sky, and found in the horse 
farms and open Helds the suburban dream 
be had lost at home in Morris County. 
There, narrow paths were bring widened 
for a new shopping mall, and congestion 
had brought urban-sized traffic jams to his 

So a few years ago, children grown and 
marriage coded, Mr. Savage moved to So- 
ciety Hill at Branchburg, a self-contained 
townhouse development rising by a recent- 
ly extended highway. Scholars say that 
Society Hill, spread over 30 acres (12 hect- 
ares) and home to about 500 people, repre- 
sents the next generation rtf American sub- 

But critics say these enclaves, which fre- 
quently offer private security, street clean- 
ing and other traditionally public services, 
insulate residents from the concerns of the 
wider community. They have been called a 
retreat from democracy, with homeowner 
boards ejected on a system of one house, 
one vote (rather than one person, one vote), 
giving more power to the wealthy while 

imposing far more restrictions on resi- 
dents’ behavior than any government 

The debate promises to touch more and 
more lives. In 1970, according to the Com- 
munity Associations Institute, 10,000 com- 
munity associations existed. By 1975 the 
number had doubled. By 1990 there were 
130,000 associations housing 32 million 
Americans in arrangements as varied as co- 
op apartment buildings, condominiums 
and walled neighborhoods of free-standing 

All these arrangements share a reliance 
on homeowner boards to provide services 
and govern residents. By 2000, the institute 
projects, the associations wfl] number 

Defenders of these burgeoning commu- 
nities argue that no one is forced to live in 
them or to accept their range of restrictions 
on such personal choices as what color they 
may paint their windows, what they may 
plant in their gardens, or who may live in 
their house. 

Others point out that these develop- 
ments are coming to represent an increas- 
ing share of the affordable- housing market. 

In an age of shrinking public resources, 
developments like Society Hill bare be- 
come a popular way for localities to ex- 
pand their tax base at minimal public out- 

lay, at least initially. As older suburbs 
increasingly face the congestion, crime and 
other troubles of urban America, the new, 
insular enclaves represent an updated ver- 
sion of the middle-class flight from cities. 

“In many ways, this form of ownership 
is a modern-day Levittown, or Levittown 
revisited,” said Benjamin Lambert, a law- 
yer who is the former president of the 
Community Association Institute’s New 
Jersey chapter, which represents the devel- 
opments. What you're really getting is the 
ability to live in a less congested, safer, 
rural type of area that’s stiB convenient to a 
major urban population center.” 

Exploiting sites along highways far from 
central cities — or even from other suburbs 

— developers build their own infrastruc- 
tures and provide many services, such as 
garbage collection and snow plowing, that 
municipalities customarily assure. 

And because residents share swimming 
pools and golf courses, the developments 
open regions like this one — where tradi- 
tional private houses cost £300,000 or more 

— to the middle class at less than half that 

are more amenable to zoning variances for 
community associations to build. They add 
to the tax base at minminm expense.” 

Developments like Society Hill are an 
answer to urban encroachment and to the 
fiscal demands forcing local governments 
to cut back the services that distinguished 
suburbs from cities. As more rtf America 
moves to suburbia, the walls, both physical 
and invisible, are going op. 

Gerald Frog, a professor specializing in 
local government at Harvard Law School, 

notes that people hare sought to escape 
congestion ana crime in two ways: “the 


“Community associations are 
over more of the functions of munidi 
governments.” said Debra Dulina Bass, a 
spokeswoman for the Community Associa- 
tion Institute. ‘That’s why governments 

city-suburb border and the public-private 
border, whether by a private community, a 
private school or malL” The developments 
combine the two, he says. 

“It's the same impulse that drove people 
to the suburbs that now drives them to 
create walled communities,” he said. “It 
does exponentially increase your ability to 
feel that your life is no longer connected to 
the larger society as a whole. It is a double 
move in this way from the larger society." 

Many developments are truly private 
realms. With names like The Mews and 
Foot Run, they blossom behind walls pro- 
tected by guardhouses and hired security 
services. Their streets are not for strangers. 
Their parks and pools are restricted to 
residents and guests. 

Their greatest growth is in places like 
Branchburg, once- rural regions made ac- 
cessible by interstate highways. For the 
most part, the migration to these places has 
been heavily white, said George Sternlieb. 
the recently retired director of the Center 
for Urban Policy and Research at Rutgers 
University and author of the 1990 book 
“The Future of Suburbia." . 

At Society Hill, a group of residents 
appeared surprised when a stranger re- 
marked on the absence of blacks among 

“1 never noticed it until you asked,” said 
David DeLuca, treasurer of the homeown- 
ers' association. 

Douglas M. Klerne, a former researcher 
for the Community Associations Institute, 
said that while older planned communities 
were built with a more expansive mental- 
ity, often including subsidized housing for 
low-income people, newer developments 
are for the better-heeled. 

“They're more likely now to have tbe 
guard at the gate, the golf course inside,” 
Mr. Klerne said. “It’s the announcement: 
Tve made it. I've got it. I'm going to keep it 
and nobody's going to take it away from 
me.' And the message, whether it's inten- 
tional or not, is. Tm abandoning my re- 
sponsibility for the city and Ihe rest of 
society.' "

JUST THE FACTS — David A. Kessler, commissioner of tbe Food and Drug Administration, 
displaying n u triti on labels that manufacturers must use beginning Sunday. Tbe aim is not just to 
give tafonnatfon about fat content, bat also a sense of a particular food’s impact on the diet. 

WASHINGTON — President Bill Clinton is exploring whether to 
hire a prominent Washington lawyer 10 represent him if he is sued by 
a woman who has accused him of making an unwanted sexual 
advance in 1991, White House officials said. 

The officials said that Lloyd N. Cutler, the White House counsel, 
had held preliminary conversations with Robert S. Bennett, who has 
represented many well-known Washington figures. Mr. Bennett rep- 
resents Harold M. I ekes, a deputy White House chief of staff, who is 
among several aides to Mr. Clinton who have been subpoenaed by tire 
special prosecutor in the Whitewater matter. 

“I've nad some conversations with Bob about the possibility,” Mr. 
Cutler said. “Nothing's been finalized. If there's a lawsuit, a lawsuit 
would have to be defended. He would be a private counsel for that 

Joel 1. Klein, the deputy White House counsel said the White 
House had beard reports that the woman, Paula C. Jones, might be 
preparing to file suit in several days. Ms. Jones appeared at a news 
conference in Washington in February, arranged by two Arkansas 
state troopers who had made accusations about Mr. Clinton's private 
life, and by Cliff Jackson, a former Oxford classmate of Mr. Clinton's 
who had spent several years trying turn up embarrassing information 
about the president's past. 

At tire news conference Ms. Jones said that Mr. Clinton made a 
sexual advance to her in a hotel room during a conference in 1991, 
when he was governor of Arkansas and she was an office assistant for 
the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission. Ms. Jones said 
she rejected the overture, which she declined to describe. 

At the time, the White House communications director. Mark D. 
Gearan. said: “It is not true. He does not recall meeting her. He was 
never alone in a hotel with her" (NYT) 

The report by the General Accounting Office, a nonpartisan 
investigative arm of Congress, goes significantly beyond a White 
House review last July of the dismissal of all seven employees of the 
travel office on May 19. The new account depicts Mrs. 'Clinton as 
playing a more active role in the dismissals after the White House 
accused the workers of mismanagement. 

Five of the travel office employees were ultimately restored to 

government jobs; the remaining two retired. Since then, the Justice 
Department has been investigating the dismissals for possible crimi- 
nal wrongdoing. (NYT) 


Dote Courts the Republicans 1 Democrat 

WASHINGTON — Senator Bob Dole joked in a recent speech that 
if Senator Richard C. Shelby defected to the Republican Party and 
Republicans then won control of the Senate this year. Mr. Shelbv 
could replace him as the party leader. 

Duld replace him as the party leader. 

“Boy, you’d be a great leader, Rick,” Mr. Dole said, adding that he 
would give the Alabama Democrat “anything he wants” to switch 

Mr. Dole, of Kansas, would sooner campaign for an East Coast 
Democrat than step aside as Republican leader. But he is serious 
about courting Mr. Shelby, who has long been the most obvious 
Senate prospect for defection. 

The idea of his switching parties has taken on more currency in 
recent days because Mr. Shelby now has an incentive: the possibility 
of Republicans gaining the seven seats they need to control the 
Senate. If be was tbe one to tip tbe balance, Mr. Shelby would become 
an instant Republican hero. In that case, Mr. Dole might have to 
make good on his “anything be wants" pledge. ~ (NYT)

the problems exposed by 

Mr. Woolscy said the Sena tots’ 
legislation “is ba<fiy drafted and is 
unwise.” He said it would establish 
“an overseas rivalry between the 
FBI and the GA that now, on the 
whole, does not east and existed 
back kthelate'4feand early ’50s.” 

He was referring to the earliest 
days of the CIA, when the agency 
ana the bureau’s longtime director, 
J. Edgar Hoover, first battled for 
dominance in the shadow world of 
catching Soviet spies. 

Mr. DeCrtnrim became angry at 
the intelligence director’s criticism, 
catting it a “wild* statement “that 
does nothing constructive.” The 
senator called the Ames case “a 
disgrace," and said “the American

chad Fay there is a "grave risk" 
that the American teenager will 
commit suicide. 

Tbe specialist. Russell A. Bark- 
ley, professor of psychiatry and 
neurology at the University of 
Massachusetts Medical Center, 
also warned that caning Mr. Fay. 
18, would “result in permanent and 
irreparable physical and mental 
harm 10 him," severely impairing 
his ability to function satisfactorily 
in adult society. 

The warning is contained in a 1 3- 
page opinion given by Dr. Barkley, 
it formed a key part of a petition 
for clemency for Mr. Fay that was 
handed to President Ong Teng 
Cheong of Singapore last month. A 
copy of Dr. Berkley's opinion was 
made available Tuesday to the In- 
ternational Herald Tribune. 

Mr. Fay was sentenced earlier 
(bis year to six strokes of a rattan 
cane and four months in jail on 
vandalism and other charges that 
included spray-painting cars and 
retaining stoie'n property. The of- 
fenses took place last year. 

The American is in prison. Only 
a favorable decision by Mr. Ong. 
acting on the advice of the Singa- 
pore government, could spare him 
the caning, which is extremely 
painful and leaves scars. 

President Bill Clinton has re- 
quested clemency for Mr. Fay. say- 
ing that caning would be an exces- 
sive punishment. 

In reviewing medical reports of 
Mr. Fay^s mental health. Dr. Baric- 
ley said it was his “considered pro- 
fessional opinion” that the teen- 
ager suffered from Attention 
Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, a 
neurological condition character- 
ized by poor concentration and ex- 
cessive restlessness. 

He said that when not properly 
treated, the disorder caused “a seri- 
ously diminished capacity for self- 

Dr. Barkley is the author of five 
textbooks related to the disorder. 

He warned that if in “the remote 
case" that caning did not result in a 
successful suidde attempt by Mr. 
Fay, “it is highly probable that it 
will create a post-traumatic stress 
disorder that will preclude his abili- 
ty to return and effectively pursue 
his educational studies as well as 
eventual adult employment” 

Singapore's criminal code says 
that a prisoner who is “medically 
unfit” will not be caned. 

the clemency, you place us in a 
position that is almost impossible 
for us,” he said. “Any concession 
looks to our people and to the 
world as knuckling under to the 
US bully." 

But he added, if a Singapore 
prison doctor could certify that 
caning might permanently affect 
Mr. Fay’s mental stability, “I am 
assured the government would ad- 
just tbe sentence." 

Dr. Barkley said that in reaching 
his medical conclusions, he had in- 
terviewed Mr. Fay by telephone on 
March 28 and spoken to his stepfa- 
ther, who has known tbe teenager 
for more than nine years. 

Attention deficit hyperactive 
disorder is thought to be inherited 
in most cases but also can be 

understood by the Singapore au- 
thorities when they made their de- 

In the submission to President 
Ong, Dr. Barkley said that the most 
appropriate penalty for Mr. Fay 
would be performance of commu-

United Nations in Shame 

Even in a century inured to carnage, the 
killings in Rwanda evoke a special horror. 
Machetes are the common weapon in massa- 
cres that began with the April 6 death of the 
Rwandan president in a still mysterious air 
crash. The killings are selective: highest on 
the target list are Rwandans known to he 
educated or to favor human rights: posses- 
sion of eyeglasses can be fatal. Thus to ram- 
paging gangs of ethnic butchers who hove 
claimed as many as 250.000 lives, a diploma 
is a death certificate. 

Compounding the horror is the throat of 
pestilence and famine in Kigali, the Rwandan 
capital as mutilated bodies clog the Kagera 
River, flowing into neighboring Tanzania at 
the rale or 25 bodies every hour. 

The United Nations looks on. stunned. The 
Security Council struggles to explain its unan- 
imous vote to cut back to 270 rather than 
increase the UN peacekeeping force originally 
sent to Rwanda as cease-fire monitors. And 
Secretary-General Butros Butrcs Gfcaii ap- 
peals to African heads of state to send troops 
for a new all-African peacekeeping operation. 

But the bitter truth is that the Security 
Council has no arrows in its quiver, and that 
in these matters the "international communi- 
ty'' is a nebulous phantom. Ending these mas- 
sacres is beyond the capacity of lightly armed 
peacekeepers. No UN member is volunteering 
to said combat troops. The United Nations 
cannot dispatch a rapid-deployment peace- 
making force because no such unit exists. 

Groping for a stronger response, the Clin- 
ton administration is weighing the offer of 
logistic support for military intervention by 
neighboring African countries, and emergen- 
cy humanitarian aid to the estimated 250,000 
refugees who have fled to Tanzania. 

A vital political corollary is that Washing- 
ton should extend no recognition to Rwanda's 
acting military regime, composed of hard-line 
majority Hutus who are the presumed authors 
of the worst atrocities in Kigali. 

President Bill Clinton could further miti- 
gate this human rights disaster by opening an 
overdue discussion on peacekeeping. When he 
spoke to the General Assembly last October, 
he correctly said that the United Nations 
must know “when to say ‘no’ " to military 
intervention. But as the "former LIN peace- 
keeping chief Brian Urquhan has added, what 
happens more often is that Washington and 
the world confusingly say “yes" and “no” in 
the same resolution. Worse. UN members, 
most notably the United States, lag ignomini- 
ously in paying for peacekeeping operations 
that they have authorized. 

The disasters of Somalia showed all too 
graphically the problems of responding to 
horrific television images with ad hoc forces 
under multinational command carrying out 
an ill-defined mission. Now the horrors of 
Rwanda underscore the continuing need for 
finding some better mechanism for saving 
lives when anarchy threatens. 


Lead AM South Africans 

“Next Tuesday I shall lay down my respon- 
sibilities as state president," said Frederik W. 
de Klerk at a news conference on Monday, 
With his concession speech and announce- 
ment that he would be handing over the presi- 
dency to Nelson Mandela, South Africa’* tor- 
tuous transition from apartheid to democracy 
finally and mercifully comes to an end. “ After 
so many centuries, we will finally have a 
government which represents all South Afri- 
cans. All South Africans are now free." said 
the outgoing president. It was an extraordi- 
nary moment in the country's history. 

The final vole tally from last week's unpre- 
cedented all-race elections is not in. Inexperi- 
ence with handling universal franchise ejec- 
tions. unexpected logistical problems, even 
instances of possible voter fraud may be con- 
tributing factors to the drag in the vote count. 
Enough is known about the likely results, 
however, to expect that the transfer of power 
from minority rale to the black majority will 
come about on terms that most South .Afri- 
cans and Ihe international community can 
accept. The victory represents a brilliant suc- 
cess for South Africans across the political 
spectrum who set aside their own factional 

interests and withstood acts of violence and 
intimidation to mak e their country's first mul- 
tiracial election a reality. 

But the victory is also a personal triumph 
for the African National Congress president. 
Nelson Mandela. After Irving through the 
brutality of apartheid and losing 27 years of 
his life in prison, Mr. Mandela chose reconcil- 
iation and the uncertainties of the political 
process over bitterness and violence as the 
best way to liberate his country. On Monday 
he (old an audience: “I am your servant. I 
don't come as your leader ... I stand before 
you humble at your courage with my heart full 
erf love for all or you.” On Friday, when South 
Africa's new 400-scat multiparty Parliament 
sits for the first time. Mr. Mandela is expected 
to be voted into his country's highest office. 

As the old order passes away, the new leader- 
ship indicates that it wants a broadly based 
government of national uni ty. possibly includ- 
ing in the cabinet some parties which per- 
formed poorly at the polls. That would be a 
generous gesture and a wise move toward shap- 
ing an inclusive government that will lead, for 
the first lime, a free, democratic South Africa. 



AK-47s, Uzis and Street Sweepers are made 
with one purpose: to kill human beings quick- 
ly and efficiently. They are noL sporting weap- 
ons: they have no legitimate civilian purpose. 
The U.S. Senate has already voted to ban 
these guns, along with a list of other semiauto- 
matic weapons and detachable magazines that 
can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. 
The ban would not apply to guns now legally 
owned, although it would require the filing of 
a federal form for such guns to be transferred. 
The Senate's assault weapons ban was passed 
as part of the crime bill, it was chopped off the 
House version. Now it is before the House as a 
freestanding bill, sponsored by Representative 
Charles Schumer. Democrat of New York. 

The kinds of weapons described in this 
legislation are the most deadly guns legally 
available in most places in .America. They are 
the weapons of choice of mass murderers and 
urban gangs. Their ability to deliver several 
rounds per second makes them ideal for drive- 
by shootings and the horrific massacres that 
have taken place in restaurants, workplaces 
and playgrounds around ihe country. 

Opponents of this legislation point out that 
when these guns are used to commit crimes, 
they are often illegal guns: therefore to ban 
them would make no difference. But some 
homble mass murders have been committed 
with legal assault weapons. .And most of the 
illegal guns on American city streets v.-ere 
legally manufactured. IF this bill passes, the 
deadliest ones will be manufactured no more. 

Passage of the bill i> far from certain. The 
House leadership -.-cems determined to brine 
it to a vote this week, and iu. vupporiers 
believe that it is still if to 10 votes sh\ of 
passage. There have been two heartening 
switches in recent days. The most important 
was that of Representative Henry Hyde. Re- 
publican of Illinois, w ho voted against such a 
ban in 1991 but who supported this’ version 
m the Judiciary Committee. Representative 
Susan Molinan. Republican of New York, 
who until a few days ago opposed ihe mea- 
sure. has now chanced her mind. 

But there are still representatives from the 
New York area who plan to vote against the 
bill. Among them are Hamilton Fish. James 
Walsh. Bill Paxon and Gerald Solomon, al! of 
New York, and Dean Gallo of New Jersey. 
Mr. Fish voted against the bill in the Judiciary 

Committee. His opposition is hard to under- 
stand. He represents much erf Westchester 
County: many of his constituents work in New 
York City. Does he not want to see the Tech-9s 
and Street Sweepers off New York streets? 

Other representatives who are undecided or 
have not publicly committed to support the 
bill are Benjamin Gilman. Sherwood Boeh- 
lert, Maurice Hinchey. Jack Quinn. John Mc- 
Hugh and Amo Houghton from New York, 
and James Saxton and Dick Zimmer from 
New Jersey. They need a call from their con- 
stituents urging a vote for the bill. 

It is a relief to see President Bill Clinton 
talcing Ihe initiative to support this measure: 
his lobbying on its behalf in recent days has 
not been matched since the days of NAFTA. 
New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani has also 
added his support Many of the members of 
Congress Listed have already had the guts to 
stand up to the gun lobby by voting for the 
Brady Law. They now need to assess whether 
they want to stand against the president, en- 
lightened hunters, almost every police organi- 
zation in the country, the mayor of the na- 
tion's biggest city and most of his fellow 
mavors — out of fear of the well-organized 
fanaticism of the National Rifle Association. 


Other Comment 

Who Will Police the World? 

U.S. ability to court deaths of troops to 
pursue an objective not dearly associated with 
vital national interest has been seriously deni- 
ed. The United States feels it cannot be the 
world's policeman. That being so. [it] should 

welcome an institutionalization of the role erf 

NATO in the service of the UN. while broaden- 
ing it. The first requirement is to bring in 
Russia as an equal partner. It win be necessarv 
to include Japan and China in some form. 

Still, much of the responsibility Tor finding 
new- sotu lions rests on" the shoulders of the 
United States. The Bosnia tragedy has shown 
that the alternative to a rational and coherent 
new policy is chaos, suffering and ad hoc 
responses that fail to work.

recently to shore; uj 
against a renewal cfj 

L TO’s most recent ultimatum — its third — 
will work. But the chances are that it will not. that 
it will be seen as what it really is; a desperate bluff 
to gel the West out of a quagmire. There is urgent 
need to rethink Western policies toward the un- 
ending Yugoslav nightmare. 

A thorough rethinking should start by squarely 
facing up to Western shortcomings and failures. 
Those have been of two kinds: failures in analysis, 
and failures in policy. 

Among the more serious failures in analysis was 
the widespread assumption among Western’ go vero- 

By Hamas W, Maul! 

Public opinion* shaken hr 
gruesome television pictures , 
demanded drastic action. 
Governments dumped the problem 
on international institutions 
— without giving them the 
tcherewithal to do the job . 

and even there military force was unable to achieve 
a key objective: a change of regime in Baghdad. 

In Yugoslavia, this reality operated for the West, 
but (and this is often overlooked) it also applies to 
the Serbs. Their wars of territorial expansion have 
destroyed the Serbian economy, and in the end win 
turn out to be as much of a national catastrophe 
for them as for the victims of their aggression. 

Somalia and Haiti, as well as Yugoslavia, 
where the UN intervention has moved away from 
the tried and trusted model of peacekeeping, 
demonstrate that constraints on the use of mili- 

tary force apply particularly severely to opera- 
tions under UN auspices. The UN operations in 
Namibia and Cambodia, on the other hand, were 
successful — by sticking to the traditional peace- 
keeping role of UN forces. 

These lessons were ignored in Yugoslavia. Why? 
The answer to this question brings us to the second 
kind of flaw: the yawning gap between exaggerat- 
ed expectations and flimsy policy effort 

This gap operated at two levels simultaneously, 
producing a double hypocrisy of Western policies 
toward the former Yugoslavia: public opinion, 
shaken by gruesome television pictures, demanded 
drastic action by governments to stop the atrocities 
— but showed little willingness to pay the price of 
effective measures. Governments, in turn, dumped 
the problem onto international institutions (the 
then European Community, the Conference on 
Security and Cooperation in Europe, the United 
Nations, NATO) — without, however, giving them 
the wherewithal to do the job. 

The result was predictable: with the rapid 
spread of this brushfire of ethnic violence, the costs 
of stopping the slaughter shot up. Now there are no 
more decent options: all alternatives look grim. 

To extricate itself, the West must begin by being 
honest. Rather than pretend to pursue policy ob- 
jectives that describe what it would like to sos but 
is quite unprepared to fight for, it must start 
defining policies and policy objectives that are 
realistic in terms both of the situation on the 
ground and of the limited willingness of Western 
governments and peoples to make sacrifices. Such 
policy objectives might include: 

« Freezing the fighting as. quickly as possible. 
This implies a cease-fire in place, which could be 
seen as legitimizing territorial conquest by force. It 

menu that in ihe violent disintegration of Yugosla- 
via. there were no vital Western interests at stake. 

This assumption was wrong. Events in Yugosla- 
via have produced enormous problems of political 
credibility for national governments and interna- 
tional institutions. It Is now plain that the West dees 
need a modicum of the very international order that 
has been shot to pieces in the former Yugoslavia. 

The second failure of analysis ha> been the. 
inability to understand that this conflict has al- 
ways been both a civil war and a war of aggression. 

The Serbs are fighting for territory, but they are 
also fighting for the security of ethnic Serbs. Other 
ethnic groups now fight for similar reasons. They 

will not be stopped by reluctant air strikes. The 
grim truth is that between the Serbs and their 
victims, security will be possible for a Ions time to 
come only on the basis of territorial separation. 

The third flaw was a faulty assessment of what 
military force car and cannot achieve. It is easy in 
today's world to use militiry force to wreak havoc, 
but very hard to harness it to constructive pur- 
poses. The liberation of Kuwait was an exception. 

would be hard to swallow for all concerned, partic- 
ularly for the Muslims. They would have to choose 
between continuing the fight for territory on their 
own, or saving the lives erf the Muslim communi- 
ties and rebuilding their shattered realm. 

• Territorial and population exchanges under 
international auspices to create territorially coher- 
ent ethnic groups, with generous support for the 
resettlement of displaced people in Bosnia, or in 
the Western countries. This not only would ratify 
the despicable practice of “ethnic deansing, ” it 
would engage the international community in it 
And it would clearly favor the Serbs. But does 
anyone have serious suggestions for how to sus- 
tain, over longer periods, population enclaves that 
are little more than large refugee camps? 

• Shifting the protection, humanitarian assis- 
tance and support of refugees onto the Bosnian 
government. This would be possible once Bosnia, 
to put it bluntly and cynically, has been “carved 
up. UN troops should be moved out of those 
tasks as quickly as possible, and moved into duties 
of interposition along agreed cease-fire lines. 

As the victimized group, the Muslims should get 
not only generous material support from govern- 
ments and private organizations, but the means to 
protect themselves as a community. The arms 
embargo ought to be lifted, subject to strict ac- 
ceptance of the cease-fire. The objective of this 
would be to work toward a balance of power 
between Serbs and Muslims, but one frozen by 
cease-fire and interposed forces: 

• M aintaining sanctions on Serbia so long as 
there is no progress on a wider political settle- 
ment. Sanctions would hdp to detegitimize terri- 
torial conquest by force and keep the pressure for

The PLO Will Have to Prove That It Can Govern 

N EW YORK — Again. Yitzhak 
Rabin and Yasser Arafat are to 

1 N Rabin and Yasser Arafat are to 
shake hand* in a momentous ceremo- 
ny. this Wednesday in Cairo. Months 
of haggling, crisis, bloodshed and 
suffering have followed the hand- 
shake on the White House lawn in 
September. This time more than the 
symbolism of signatures is at stake. 

Can the agreement on Palestinian 
self-rule in Die Gaza Strip and the 
West Bank work? Can leirorism car- 
ried out by the fundamentalist assas- 
sins of Hamas stop? 

These are separate questions, or at 
least they ought to be. Unfortunately, 
emotions in Israel make the viability 
of peace with the Palestinians depend 
on cessation of all tenor attacks — 
an unrealistic objective. This dream 
gives the terrorists far too many 
chips and too much disruptive power. 

That is why. hard though it may be. 
Israelis have to realize that terror 
cannot be completely stopped, even

in peacetime, and that while tenor 
endangers individual lives and prop- 
erty. it does not imperil the existence 
or ihe state. War does. 

Hamas opposes the peace process 
for three reasons. 

It is against Israel’s very existence 
ai. 1 cannot swallow a two-state solu- 
tion. It wants a theocratic, Islamic 
state rather than the secular state that 
the Palestine Liberation Organiza- 
tion seeks. And it suspects — or says 
it suspects — that the Gaza-Jericho 
plan is an Israeli sham devised to 
avoid creation of a Palestinian state. 

But Hamas has strong Interests, 
ideological and practical, in avoiding 
a fratricidal war with the PLO that it 
knows it cannot win and that, it says, 
would play into thehands of the Is- 
raelis. (Such a war would help the 
Israeli right, but not the government.) 

The PLO. for its part claims to 

represent all Palestinians, including 
those opposed to its policies. This is 
why it insisted, successfully, that Is- 
rael release many imprisoned Hamas 
activists with the thousands of PLO 
members now being freed. 

Despite their own propaganda. 
>me Hamas leaders are prepared to 

some Hamas leaders are prepared to 
accept the PLO position that the 
Gaza-Jericho plan is not the end of a 
process but a first step. In their view, 
when full independence is attained 
their militant movement may then 
have its hour. 

So Hamas and the PLO are report- 
ed to have reached an agreement un- 
der which Hamas will not challenge 
Mr. Arafat by arms and not Launch 
further terrorist attacks against Israel 
from the areas under self-rule. 

The PLO, bent on building de- 
pendable institutions, has a powerful 
interest in enforcing the agreement. 

both to fofl Hamas bloodshed that 
might challenge its governance and to 
avoid Israeli threats or acts of inter- 
vention and reprisal. 

Hamas knows that within a few

something important in common 
with Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and 
America’s Bill Ginton. 

Saddam Hussein did not tell the

that there was a chance they would be 
pounded into military defeat. When 
Bill Ginton ordered American bomb- 
ers to lake part in the Bosnian war. he 
did not say there was a chance that 
bombing could spread the war further. 

And Yitzhak Rabin, makinz enn-

iansand Svria, does not tell Israelis of 
the evidence that Arab public opin- 
ion is not ready for that peace, and 
favors immediate military confronta- 
tion as the alternative. 

An old story — when national

risk and big opportunity they umphz^

or just skip talk about risk. 

1e a recent column ! wrote that 
Arab governments were still spewing 
out anti-Israeli propaganda and that 
Arab nations had taken none of the 
obvious steps to show their people 
that the unholy war was over. Coinci- 
dentally. the day the column was 
primed I received a studs’ that pre- 
sided startling supporting statistics. 

The study was carried out not bv 
an Israeli but by Hilal Khashan. asso- 
ciate professor or political science at 
the .American University of Beirut, 
The article, printed by the new Middle 
East Quarterly (4504 Osage Avenue. 
Philadelphia 19104) is called "Are the 
Arabs Ready for Peace With Israel'*" 

His answer is a sad “no" — the 
result or a poll he carried out among 
I. 000 Muslim Lebanese. Syrians and 
Palestinians in Beirut on the eve of 
the first Israeli-PLO agreement on 
ScpL 13. 1993. 

“What are the alternatives to peace 
talks?" was one question. Of the Iwo- 
thirds who replied to the question. 75 
percent favored “immediate military 
cr-nfronlatiqn with Israel." 

The remaining one-fourth wanted 
to maintain the present situation — 
no peace, no war. 

The conclusion in the analysis is 
that those who did support negotia- 
tions saw them merely as a truce be- 
fore another military confrontation. 
The study blames Arab leadership for 
the fact that .Arab people show little 
understanding oT peace with Israel or 
its benefits and see it as a surrender. 

Since ihe early 1920s. Mr. Khashan 
writes, the Arab elite has conditioned 

Arab populations to suspect Jews, 
hate Zionists and seek the destruc- 

hate Zionists and seek the destruc- 
tion of Israel. And when Arab leaders 
chose to seek peace, he says, they did 
not prepare their people for what it 
meant, but followed a policy of 
“peace by stealth" — one step for- 
ward. two steps back, underestimat- 

ing the implications of peace. 
The Rabin government is s 

The Rabin government is so con- 
vinced that a formal peace is in (he 
best interest of Israel that it has 
changed the military strategy that for 
decades rested on control of’the West 
Bank and the Golan Heights. 

As part of its negotiating tactics 

Israel is playing down the refusal of 
Arab governments to revoke the very 
actions that helped create and sustain 
haired and war against Israel. 

Among them are: the global hate 
sewer, the world boycott, l/nrermen- 
schen barriers against Jewish travel- 
ers. and the Arab conventions calling 
for the death of Israel. 

When many members of the U.S. 
Congress wanted to push for an end 
of the embargo now. the Israelis tout- 
ed them off. Then Israel docilely ac- 
cepted a UN resolution condemning 
murders committed by one private 
person — the Hebron killer. This had 
never been done at the United Na- 
tions- Israelis did not urge the United 
States to veto a paragraph treating 
Jerusalem as occupied territory. 

When Palestinians refused to re- 
voke their death oaths. Israel acted 
unconcerned. When the Arab League 
refuses 10 end the embargo, Israel 

talks about the exceptions that Arabs 
graciously grant from lime to time. 

The Rabin government will proba- 
bly achieve the agreements it seeks. 
Land on credit ana the coming Pales- 
tinian independence are a good start- 
ing point for the Arabs. But in the 
process his government is making the 
error of other Israeli governments — 
deluding itself about what Arab peo- 
ple think, and the consequences. 

If Israel now does not seem to care 
much about how the Arab people arc 
fed with haired, or that so many see 
peace with Israel os a prelude to war 
with Israel, why should any other 
government bother itself -—"now or 
after the papers are signed?

Asia After the Vietnam War 

Regarding “ For Southeast Asia, 
a Crucial Respite” ( Opinion, April 29) 
by Marvin On: 

The article represents one American’s 
reading of history. The hard truth is that 
almost all the economic progress 
achieved in Southeast Asia dates from 
the departure of the Americans from 
Vietnam. Mr. On dwells on the contrast 
between the economic prostration of 
Vietnam and the marked economic pro- 
gress in neighboring countries. Bui the 
fad is that Vietnam had virtually no 
bankable national economy during the 
stay of the French and the Americans. 
Economic progress came after political 
freedom in Vietnam. Furthermore, the 
Americans went into Vie tnam in pursuit 
of their own strategic agenda, not to 
save Malaysia, Indonesia, Laos. Cambo- 
dia and the Philippines.

The editorial lumps Tunisia together

W ASHINGTON — Each year has 
its milestones. The big one for 
1994 is the 50th anniversary of the Al- 
lied landings on the beaches of Norman- 
dy. But another, as yet unremarked, is 
the anniversary of the birth of Pericles in 
494 B.C. —an event, I concede, that has 
been ignored for who knows bow long 
— two millennia, maybe. 

Why bother now? The answer in Per- 
icles’s case must be “better late than 
never.** We owe him a lot, although we 
cannot measure how much, since most 
of the literature in which he figured has 
not survived. We know that probably 
no one has ever ruled as wisely or as 
long with the consent of the governed. 
We know that be was the inspiration 
for and patron of the richest effusion 
of classical an. 

Briefly, we know that Pericles defined 
and dominated an eponymous era that 
was the closest thing to a gulden age 
that history reveals. 

What is not widely known is that 
Pericles had a vivid, and for a time 
tumultuous, private life. Scholars dis- 
agree on details, but not on the main 
point At considerable risk to his exalted 
position. Pericles shared not just his bed 
out his political life with a brilliant 
and beautiful woman. 

Her name was Aspasia, and now. 
when f emal e prime ministers are not an 
oddity, and diversity in high places is the 
fashion, her singular role in the classical 
legacy should be pointed up. 

Aspasia was a political force, even 
though wives of the Athenian gentry 
were normally illiterate, sheltered and 
taken up with family and slaves. She was 
not even Pericles’s wife. A divorced and 
aloof man in his early 50$, who never 
entertained or accepted dinner invita- 
tions, he fell in love with the much 
younger woman and she with him. 

The affair was an utter anomaly, with 
scandalous overtones, most of which in- 
vited smears and hyperbole. 

First of all, Aspasia was a beta era, 
meaning that she belonged to a caste of 
higb-dass, cultivated courtesans. To 
take a hetaera into one’s house, have a 
child with her and, worse still, snake no 
effort to conceal her impressive intellec- 
tual skills and corresponding influence 
on her mighty consort’s thinking — all 
of this was for many Athenians not just 
eccentric but offensive. 

As EF. Bensen wrote in the 1920s 
about Peridean Athens, “a flute-girl 
supplied occasional amusement, a wife 
supplied sons, and Athens in all the 
friendships and romantic companion- 
ships of fife was a dty of men.” 

Neither before nor after Aspasia did 
an Athenian woman keep a salon in her 
house, much less one to which the city's 
deepest thinkers and their pupils 
flocked. Among the notables with whom 
Aspasia discussed politics and phQoso- 

By John Newhonse 



were Socrates and members of his 
L Socrates was known to have bees 
deeply impressed by Aspasia. 

And Plato, in his dialogue between 
Socrates and Menexenus, identifies her 
as the real author of Pericles's only 
famous utterance, the funeral oration 
for the dead in the early days of the 
Peloponnesian War. 

Most experts reckon that Plato was 
just having some fun —nan g the dia- 
logue to show that much of tribal passed 
for informed opinion in Athens had 


come io see Aspasia as the clever one 
and the manipulator of the first citizen. 

And therein lay the problem. Al- 
though Pericles was very grand, he did 
not lack enemies and critics. 

The long peace with Sparta that he 

made and managed was nam on war 
hawks. Conservatives opposed what 
they saw as too much democracy and 
free thinking and loo Little respect 
for the gods or for values based on 
postion and privilege. Before Aspasia 
came on the scene, Pericles's enemies 
had not managed to breach his defenses. 
Then, using her as a weapon, they at- 
tacked him full bore. 

Plutarch describes how Aspasia was 
accused of procuring women for Pericles 
and turning his bouse into a brotheL 

The charge, however absurd, proba- 
bly had some resonance, since Pericles, 
unlike so many of his peers, was distinct- 
ly heterosexual A comic poet named 
Hemuppus attacked him for “erotic in- 
stability” in a play called “King of the 
Satyrs." The comic poets were the pack 
journalists of the period, and the theater 
was their channel for smearing and ridi- 
culing the prominent. 

Since Pericles was being effectively 
harassed through Aspasia, it seemed a 
good idea to attack other members of 
his tiny circle of intimates. One such 
was Phidias, Greece’s greatest sculptor. 
Pericles had commissioned him to 
build the Parthenon, and in 438 B.C.. 
about when Pericles's troubles began. 
Phidias was completing the huge gold 
and ivory statue of Athena for the inner 
room of the temple. 

Abruptly, be was accused of si 

some of the gold — a charge that 
spatter Pericles, si 

les. since he was in charge 
of such projects. 

More serious, the poets had been 
hurling charges of impiety and blas- 
phemy against Aspasia. and they now 
accused Phidias of the same crime. 
Phidias was vulnerable: Like Aspasia, 
he had broken new ground, in this case 
by carving likenesses of human beings 

on Athena’s shield. One of the liken- 
esses, alas, resembled Pericles, the 
other Phidias himself. 

To carve recognizable people on the 
statue of the goddess,” writes the classi- 
cal scholar Donald Kagan, “was far loo 
bold for the ordinary citizen, who was 
likely to consider it an act of hubris that 
could endanger the enure city.” 

Meanwhile, Aspasia's situation was 
growing more desperate. Any citizen of 
Athens could bring a legal action 
against another citizen, and it was 
Hennippus, one of Pericles's chief 
tormentors, who formally indicted her 
for impiety. 

He may not have been acting on his 
own. By then, a commerce-based nou- 
veau riche faction was forming, and 
one of its early leaders was a seller of 
hides named Cleon — a kind of Ross 
Perot of the day and a sworn enemy of 
Pericles. With his verses. Hermippus 
became Cleon’s flack. 

According to Plutarch. “The people 
accepted with delight these slanders" 
against Aspasia and the others. But Peri- 
des, he adds, got Aspasia spared “by 
shedding copious tears at ibe trial 
. . . and by entreating the jurors.” 

Exactly what befell Phidias is not 
dear, but he came to a bad end. 

By one account be vanished from the 
dty. By another, be was put in prison 
ana died there. 

With religious fundamentalists in full 
cry, Pericles probably calculated that he 
would be able to save only one of the 
accused, and inevitably he used his pow- 
er to save the woman he loved. 

Pericles himself came through the at- 
tacks on him and Aspasia without last- 
ing injury to Ids prestige or his power. 
The blasphemy trials occurred when 
Athens was at the peak of its glory. 
For its leader, it was the best of times, 
politically and personally. 

A few years later, his long peace was 
shattered by the outbreak of the Pelo- 
ponnesian War. swiftly followed by a 
plague. Aspasia was not blamed for the 
plague, bni a few comic poets did accuse 
Pericles of arranging the war to divert 
attention from his Aspasia-relaied mis- 
eries. Some years later, Aristophanes 
picked up that libel and used it in a play, 
“The A cnamians ." 

None of what occurred, including the 
decline of the city — and democracy — 
that set in after the war began, came 
between Pericles and Aspasia. Their liai- 
son lasted as long as Pericles did. He 
died in 429 B.C. 

Aspasia made another strong, though 
less conspicuous, attachment- And Peri- 
cles was succeeded by Geon.

all, as having been fought ova 
great issues rather than mere terri- 
tory — but in fact it is not Most 
students of military behavior be- 
lieve that male bonding in one fonn 
or another is the chief reason why 
soldiers fight; by contrast McPher- 
son claims that “a large number of 

those mat in blue and gray woe 
intensely aware of the issues at 
stake and passionately concerned 
about them.” 

McPherson advanced this aigu- 
ment in the 1993 Walter Lynwood 

n - . _ t at t luiicinnn 

F leming Lectures at Louisiana 
S tale Unh 

Jnivenoly, published here 
“in a form only slightly altered 
bom their oral delivery.” Although 
the lectures stand confidently on 

their own, they are also part of an 
ongoing project, a book tentatively 

titled “Why They Fought” in which 
McPherson plans to “explore the 
motives of union and Confederate 
sohfierc for eoBstmg and figuring in 
the Civil War.” 

He had not expected io find pa- 
triotism and/or ideology high 
among those motives, bnt the evi- 
dencene encountered in letters and 
diaries on both sides convinced him 

These were “the most literate ar- 
mies in histray to that time —more 
than 80 percent of Confederate sol- 
diers and more than 90 percent of 
white Union soldiers could read 
and write.” McPherson has read 
some 25,000 letters and more titan 
100 diaries* and has come away 
convinced that, although they con- 
stitute an imperfect sample of opin- 
ion in both armies, they are an 
accurate barometer of general sen- 
timent therein. He writes in “What 
They Fought For”: 

“AH of the quotations I have 
presented hoe were taken from 
tmeensored private letters and di- 
aries. These men were not postur- 
ing fear public consumption. They 
were not tooking back from years 
la ter through a romantic haze of 
myth about the war. They were 
writing during the immediacy of 
their ex p e ri ence to explain mid 
justify thdr beliefs to family mem- 
bers or friends who shared-or in 
some cases questioued-those be- 
liefs. And how smugly can we 

sneer at their expressions of will- 
ingness to die for those beliefs 
when we know that so many of 
them did just that?” 

The language of many of these 
letters “may come across to this 
post-Freudian age as mawkish pos- 
turing, romantic sentimentalism, 
hollow platitudes.” Rebel officers 
and sakfiera spoke of “the holy 
cause of Southern freedom,’’ 
“death before Yankee rule” and 
“glorious destiny” wink Yankees 
spoke in minor image; “My glori- 
ous, glorious country.” “that glori- 
ous cause." “sacrifice on the altar 
of liberty." What our cynical are 
cannot grasp is the simple truth: 
Thdr words were not mawkish 
melodrama; they meant what they 

As the passages just quoted sug- 
gest, what they said often sounded 
strikingly, eezRy alike. One of the 
ironies of the CvD War is that 
soldiers on both rides ardently be- 
lieved that they were fighting to 
reaffirm and seenre the “heritage of 
fiberty bequeathed to them by the 
founding fathers.” 

McPherson expected to find pas- 
sions running strongest in the 
South, which al least in the early 
months of the war had a more 
ckarty enunciated idea of what it 
was fighting fra: than did the North, 
and indeed he found emotion 
y. But be also found its 
it in the North, whose sol- 

diers had a surprisingly clear im- 
of tne threat' 

: threats posed by 

demanding of 

On one issue the soldiers of the 
North were less dear. Due to “a 
mixture of racism, conservatism 
and partisan politics,” many Yan- 
kees were less than enthusiastic 
about emancipation as a cause 
worth fighting for. Only by “fits 

and starts” did they move “toward 
an eventual majority in favor of 
abolishing slavery as the only way 
to win the war and preserve the 
Union," and even bv war’s end 
their commitment to this cause was 

McPherson presents his case for 
patriotism and ideology in both 
camps with a full awareness that 

even so much evidence as is avail- 
able to him is insufficient for final 
arguments, but he makes a persua- 
sive case for Ins interpretation- He 
also makes the reader all the more 
eager to. see his full work in pro- 
gress come to fruition.

government made up of people 
who have never before been al- 
lowed a whiff of official power. 
On that front, the foul-ups in the 
administration of last week's 
“people’s deed on” were not an 
encouraging start 

But some facets of South Afri- 
ca's transformation are already 
complete. Foremost is the lifting 
of a psychological albatross. 

There is already a efiebt for the 
new South Africa's self-image: It 
is the menial picture of a white 
woman and her black makL who, 
having spent their lives under the 
same roof, are Finally doing 
something together as equals: 
waiting in an impossibly long line 
to vote. 

For blacks, the attainment of 
dignity after centuries of struggle 
will not bring houses or jobs, but 
it may bring something even 
more important — a readiness at 
last to think of themselves as 
Sooth Africans. 

For whites, the lifting of the 
“white man’s burden” crackles 
with baric themes of redemption 

and liberation. As Ken Owen, the 
editor of Johannesburg’s Sunday 
Times, put it in his weekend col- 
umn: “One nation. Free. Free at 
guilt. Free, too, of a different, 
more crushing burden: the 
Northern Hemisphere heritage, 
the vanity and arrogance be- 
queathed to us by Europe.” 

Some of this may sound senti- 
mental; what is notable about 
South Africa’s makeover is that it 
is made of much harder stuff. It 
has been one of the most inielli- 

S tly managed political trans- 
nations in recent history. 
Frederik van Zyl Slabbert, 
Sooth Africa's leading white anti- 
apartheid politician during the 
1980s. remarked on television 
that what always bothered him 
about apartheid was its “massive 
assault on one's intelligence.’' 
The idea that a bureaucracy 
could keep the people of the same 
country together in economic ar- 
rangements but entirely span in 
all other realms, by testing the 
color of their skin and the kinki- 
ness of their hair, defied c omm on

Postcolonial Africa's greatest 
political problem has been bow to 
accommodate the interests of dis- 
affected ethnic minorities. Here 
in South Africa, two minorities — 
white Afrikaner settlers and 
black Zulu traditionalists — 
threatened for a time to wreck the 
transition. The induceraenl that 
brought all but tbc most extrem- 
ist elements into the campaign 

was the realization that they did

party receiving 5 percent of the 
vote is entitled to cabinet repre- 
sentation, and Chief Butheferi 
has frequently been mentioned 
for one of the three deputy pres**

inet post. 

A group of Commonwealth 
election obsovers repeated that it 
found that the election was a 
"free and clear expression of the

directors wishing to confirm their 
own reputations r*»h*T than those of the au-

went to Framjoise Poflet 
in the title role. The 
French soprano’s expressiveness 
and nobOity of style was so on the 
maik it is a wonder she was not cast 
for h in Ihe first place, instead of 
being brought in to rescue perfor-

Gary Lakes was a stalwart Ad-

Gluck than the ambiguous origi-

ticular qualities are abundantly in 
evidence in “Z£mire et Azor," 
which is a reworking of the “Beauty

vation of the staging as it might 
have been in the time of the the- 
ater-loving Gustaf ID, although 
here it is credited to John Cox. The

amended by differing painted 
backdrops, and with elegant period 
costumes by Brown. 

It was all stylish and charming, 
and stylish, too, was the singing in 
Swedish translation (with some of 
MarmonteTs original text project-

A Voice Not Heard for Centuries 

By Robert L. Kroon 

Iniemmotal Herald Tribute 

N EUCHATEL, Switzerland — Forget 
about Pavarotti or Carreras. Discard Ma- 
ria Call as and Kiri Te Kanawa. Jean -Claude 
Gaberel, a Swiss musicologist and sound engi- 
neer, says no tenor or soprano alive could 
match the timbre, power and three-octave 
range of the legendary sopramsto Farindii 
(1705-1782), whose voice was idolized as “an- 
gelic, supernatural and enrapturing” by the 
tikes ol Handel, Mozan and Scarlatti. 

Farindii, whose real name was Carlo Bros- 
chi, put an indelible stamp on I Sth -century 
Europe’s musical culture, and his “angel 
sound” was credited with easing the persistent 

depressions of King Philip V of Spain. Angels 
being sexless, the comparison is remarkably 
apt, for Farineili’s vocal qualities were the re- 
sult of emasculation before puberty. This illegal 
sexual mutilation was long condoned by church 
leaders who fell the glorious result more th»n 
justified the means. 

The castrato voice was introduced in the late 
1 6th century, when women were banned from 
church choirs and, at least in areas under papal 
control, from the stage. Musically promising 7- 
or 8-year-old choirboys were virtually abducted 
and delivered to barbers or, in the best case, 
country surgeons, for removal of their testes 
and sperm ducts. Those who survived the or- 
deal were rewarded with free musical tutoring, 

and, in the case of Farinefli and others who 
reached the top rank, international fame. 

Gaberel says emasculation spawned tinging 
voices of uncommon range and flexibility. 

“As the castrati grew into often towering 
adults, their physical hulk, and lung capacity 
produced voices far more powerful than those 
of female or boy vocalists, 1, he said 
In 1902 Pope Leo XIII finally cracked down 
on emasculation and the last castrato anger, 
Alessandro Moreschi, died in 1923. There are 
still some recordings of Moreschi, but the quali- 
ty is terrible and Moreschi was a mediocre 
performer, so no one today really knows what 
the castrato stars like Farindii sounded like. 

This created a nagging problem for the Bel- 
gian moviemaker Girard Corbiau, who is film- 

ing a French- Belgian-Itahan co-production on 

the Hfe and times of FarineDL Enter Gaberel, 
46, a precision sound engineer who is also a 
music historian and a musician who studied the 
trumpet at the Neuchktel conservatoire. 

When an instrumental career seemed unre- 
warding, Gaberel opted for a microengineering 
job and he started his own business venture 20 
years ago as a recording engineer and designer 
of sound systems. 

Gaberd lives and works in a modest villa in 
the Jura mountain village of Fontaines. The 
walls of his living room walls are covered with 
3.000 classical CD disks and the basement sound 
lab is packed with $500,000 worth of computers 
and recording equipment. Studying the scores of 
operas sung by FarineDi with Corbiau, be quick- 
ly realized that no “sexually intact” contempo- 
rary singer could perform music that soared from 
tenor levels to coloratura trills. 

He briefly considered a computerized syn- 
thesis of the vocal part, but finally derided only 
a natural voice would do. 

Today you can find accomplished male fal- 
setto singers in classical and even pop music,” 
Gaberel said. “But the high falsetto pitch al-

ways lacks the full-throated vibrato of a female 
soprano, or a castrato. for that matter. Con- 
versely, no soprano can match Farindli's coun- 
tertenor undertones. So I decided to use a male 
and a female voice and see if they could be 
electronically fused.” 

In February. Gaberd moved his digital re- 
corders to the French rily of Metz, where he 
made monophonic recordings (tf FarineDi arias 
sung successively by the Polish soprano Eva 
Godlewska and the American countertenor 
Derek Lee Ragm. plus a separate stereophonic 
recording of the orchestral score. The arias are

Murky Outlook at Fininvest 

By John Tagliabue 

Sew York Tunes Service 

ROME — With Silvio Berlusconi set to become 
Italy’s next prime minister, his future seems clear. 
What is perhaps less clear is the future of the 
company he owns, Fininvest SpA. 

while Mr. Berlusconi struggles to assemble 'a 
cabinet, Fininvest is struggling with $2.3 billion of 
deblamassed during its heady growth years in the 

While his political aides work to transform Italy, 
Fininvest — wbose-37 billion in sales makes it 
Italy’s second-largest nonstate-con trolled compa- 
ny after Fiat SpA and Europe's second- largest 
media group after Bertelsmann AG of Germany — 
is struggling to transform itself. 

This has put Fininvest ai the heart of a bitter 
debate. After all, Mr. Berlusconi's critics say, isn't 

his becoming prime minister a bit like Ted Turner.

the head of

and champion soccer, hockey and handball teams. 

To get Italy’s economy purring again, Mr. Ber-

China Abstains from Key ADB Vote 

O I r ue ma norial Herald Tribune 

By Jon Liden 

Special to the Herald Tribune 

NICE — Annoyed over what it 
sees as an attempt by Western 
countries to put conditions on 
loans from (he Asian Development 
Bank, China has abstained from 
voting on a doubling of the bank's 
capital, delegation sources at the 
bank’s annual meeting here said 

In doing so, China has opened 
up another front in wfaat increas- 
ingly appears to be an East-West 
battle over how to develop the fast- 
growing Pacific basin radon. 

The move by China followed a 
decision by the foiled Stares to 
take a more active role in the bank. 

ending its opposition to the capital 
increase but calling for a linkage 
between bank spending and social 
and environmental issues. The 
ADB has reached the ceiling of its 
lending capacity and is preparing 
to double its authorized capital to 
S47 billion this year. 

That U.S. turnaround, which 
was meant to be constructive, in- 
stead has polarized the bank's fi- 
nancing member countries, some 
officials said. 

“It was meant to bring the bank 
forward, but it may turn out to be a 
step backward instead," an ADB 
official said. 

Member countries have until 
May 22 to vote on the resolution 

increasing the bank's capital, and 
75 percent of the votes must ap- 
prove the measure for it to go for- 

Mitsuo Sato, the president of the 
bank, said be was confident that 
the resolution would win approval, 
buL be conceded that he would have 
to spend a lot of time mending 
fences in the months to come. He 
tried to minimize the importance of 
China’s abstention. 

“China has supported the issue 
of a capital increase, but not the 
linkage,” Mr. Sato said. “By ab- 
staining, it wants to make a point.

LONDON — The world's leading dreg companies, 
under pressure as never before from falling prices and 
slowing sales, are reshaping themselves through take- 
overs and alliances. 

The Anglo-American giant SmithKline Beecham 
PLC on Tuesday unveiled plans to buy the American 
drug distributor Diversified Pharmaceutical Services 
Inc.; on the same day, Eastman Kodak Co. announced 
plans to sell its drug unit Sterling Wimhrop; and on 
Monday. Roche Holding Ltd. of Switzerland launched 
an agreed S53 billion takeover bid for Syntex Carp, of 
the United States. 

Analysts said the moves underlined the growing 
urgency among companies in the S200 biDion-a-year 
global industry to shore up profitability. 

“We all know that the environment in which we 
work is changing rapidly,** SmithKline’s chief execu- 
tive. Jan Leschly. said. 

“The winners will position themselves to capitalize 
upon those change Those who fail to adapt will lose.*’ 

Analysts said more agreements like those seen this 
week were inevitable in the fragmented drugs indus- 
try. where the global leader, Merck & Co. of the 
United States, has a market share of less than 5 

Prices of British drug companies rose sharply on 
London’s stock exchange Tuesday in response to that 
prospect SmithKline rose 23 pence to 413 pence 
(S6.25) a share, Glaxo Holdings PLC gained S to 585, 
and Wellcome PLC jumped 21 to 5451 

Companies such as Upjohn Co. and Marion Merrell 
Dow Inc. in America and Fisons PLC in Britain, 
which are struggling to replace aging dregs from a 
weak research pipeline, are seen as possible takeover 

But the industrywide shake-up will not be limited to 
the kind of fuD- fledged mergers that created Smith- 
KJine Beecham and Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. in the 
1980s, analysis say. 

Many companies w3I opt instead for alliances de- 
signed to spread themselves across the sector, from 
dreg production to distribution. 

SnuthKIine’s purchase of DPS and Pfizer Inc’s 
link-up with a so-called pharmacy benefit manager. 
Value Health Inc., also announced on Tuesday, have 
exactly this objective. 

It costs an average of around $250 milli on to bring a 
new pharmaceutical product to market. In a major 
report just out, analysts at Lehman Brothers calculate 
that the world drugs market would have to grow by 9.4 
percent a year for the rest of the decade just to 
generate what it calls a “satisfactory” 10 percent 
return op investment in research and development.

The Associated Press 

PHILADELPHIA — SmithKline Beecham PLC 
joined drug companies entering the managed health 
care field Tuesday, announcing plans to purchase 
Diversified Pharmaceutical Semces Inc. for $23 bil- 
lion in cash. 

Diversified, based in Bloomington. Minnesota, 
manages prescription drug benefits for 11 million 
people in the United States. 

London-based SnnihKIine Beecham, whose U.S. 

headquarters is in Philadelphia, also reached a six-year 
agreement for exclusive rights to disease management 
data from health management organizations, or 
HMOs, owned by Diversified’s parent company. 
United Healthcare Corp. SmithKline is the world's 
third-largest pharmaceutical company, with 1993 sties 
of $9.1 billion. 

“The pharmaceutical market is changing in the 
United States,” said Joe Riccardo, an industry analyst 
with Bear Steams & Co. Pharmaceutical benefit man- 
agement companies such as Diversified will play an 
increasingly important role in the selection of pre- 
scription drugs, he said. 

The union with SmithKline Beecham will enable 
Diversified to market its pharmaceutical and medical 
diagnostic programs outside the United States, United 
HealtbCare’s chairman. Dr. William W. McGuire, 

The pharmaceutical maker gains a foothold in the 
growing managed-drug benefits field, an industry 
which has expanded fivefold since 1989 and now 
covers 50 million people in the United States, accord- 
ing to SnnthKlme Beecham. 

SmithKline Beecham products mil also be available 
at a discount to consumers involved in Diversified 
drug benefit plans, Mr. Riccardo said. Drug spending 
on behalf of Diversified customers totaled almost $2 
trillion last year and involve 30,000 pharmacies across 
the United States. 

In a similar move Tuesday, Pfizer Inc., the pharma- 
ceutical firm, and Value Health Inc., a manag ed health 
care provider, said they had entered into a SI 00 
million joint venture. 

Pfizer and Value Health said that their joint ven- 
ture, funded equally by both companies, will develop 
health-care businesses focusing on diseases such as 
cancer, diabetes and heart disease. The venture will 
also Torm businesses (dated to high-cost medical pro- 
cedures, like transplants and joint implants. 

In another part of the deal Pfizer products will be 
assured positions on Value Health’s lists of approved 
prescription dregs. Value Health will also develop pro- 
grams designed to encourage use of Pfizer products. 

The New Jersey-based pharmaceutical maker 

Merck & Co. started the trend last year when it bought 


a mail-order drug company, Medco Con tainmen t ; __ 
vices Idcl. for $6 billion. Medco also manages drug 
benefits plans. 


The Highway to Where? 

By Lawrence Malkin 

International Herald Tribune 

N EW YORK — Not even the most bril- 
liant engineers of the information su- 
perhighway know its final destination 
or bow it will get there, but some of 
them are trying to draw a road map. No ea sy tas k 
for a network dchyering information on demand 
through 500 television channels. 

Who really wants that much? How would some- 
one at the end of a terminal choose what he wanted 
anyway? Or is this dicbfc just a bunch of hype? 
Answers are beginning to emerge, and the cross- 
cnltural linkups are nothing ever seen before. 

Whatever shape it takes, the system wffl be 
broader than France’s successful Minitd, which 
probably wfll go down in Mstoty as a commercial 
■pioneer in interactive communications But the 

Minitd appears to have both the logic and thehrats 

ci a loot straight French route natimak, offering 
computer access to users for eyoytjring from warn 
schedules to off-color conversations but esrentialiy a 
service to provide information from data backs or, 

at most, a link to another interiorato.

equivalent of 500 movies, which up to 1,000 sub- 
scribers will be able to call to their home screens. 

In the Saguenay region of Quebec, a consortium 
of live companies is planning cabled access next 
year to 34,000 Canadian households to lap bank 
accounts, order Irom shopping catalogues, see 
movies on demand, make individual computer 
linkups, and even play (he provincial lottery. The 
sponsors have very little idea whether the custom- 
ers really want all these services by wire in their 
homes, and this is a marketing test to find out. 

Several dozen of the most advanced brains and 
(be deepest business pockets gathered recently for 
ah ann ual conference on such questions, organized 
by die show-business newspaper Variety and by 
Wertheim, Sdrroeder & Co. Werthtim, Schroeder

investment bouses with expertise in the field of 
what Reed Htmdt, chairman of the Federal Com-

They agreed on only one tiring: The highway is 
coming, and any business that refuses to admit it 
faces bankruptcy. The convergence of tedmology

who is yytrfBtig for smaller deals following the 
failure of bis company’s proposed merger with

Of Hyundai 
Bows Out 

Compiled by Our Staff From Dispatches 

SEOUL — Chung Ju Yung, 
founder and honorary chairman of 
the Hyundai conglomerate said 
Tuesday he would retire from busi- 
ness and spend the rest of his life 

"I am making a clean break with 
the group,” he said. 

Mr. Chung's announcement 
came days before he was to face an 
appeals court trial on charges of 
diverting $60 million in company 
funds to his 1992 presidential cam- 
paign. He was found guilty of the 
charges and sentenced to three 
years in prison by a lower court. 

Since losing in the 1992 presi- 
dential elections as a distant third, 
Mr. Chung has been under govern- 
ment pressure to retire from Hyun- 
dai as well as politics. 

Hyundai officials have com- 
plained that they have suffered 
from alleged government retalia- 
tion as a result of Mr. Chung's 
refusal so far to leave Hyundai. 

They argue that Hyundai has un- 
fairly been denied preferential gov- 
ernment loans available to other 
businesses and banned from secur- 
ing funds by issuing bonds in both 
the domestic and foreign markets. 

Hyundai produces cars, comput- 
ers, ships, semiconductors and elec- 
tronic goods. (AP, AFP )

I t was the ancient Traders 
who first escablished 
many of today’s banking 
practices. They accepted 
funds for safekeeping. 
Bartered goods for services. 
And extended credit. Ir was 
a business based on trust, 
and a handshake contract 
was binding. 

The world has changed 
immeasurably since then, 
but Republic National Bank 
still holds to the principles 

established nearly four mil- 
lennia ago. 

We believe in the primacy 
of personal relationships, the 
importance of trust and the 
protection of depositors* 
funds. This emphasis has 
made us one of the world’s 
leading private banks. 

As a subsidiary of Safra

part of a global group with 

more than US$5.6 billion 
in capital and US$50 billion 
in assets. These assets con- 
tinue to grow substantially, 
a testament to the group’s 
strong balance sheet, risk- 
averse orientation and 
century-old heritage. 

Though cuneiform tablets

to a six-month low against the

The Federal Reserve intervened 
to support the dollar against (he

Kodak Provides a Lift 
For Blue Chip Stocks 

Compiled fa Our Stuff From Dispatches 
NEW YORK — Blue-chip 
stocks closed higher Tuesday, get- 
ting a boost from Eastman Kodak, 
but the broader market failed to 
pick up on die rise.

New York Stock Exchange out- 

paced gaining ones by an 1 1-to-lG

291.89 million shares. 

Stock buying enthusiasm was 
dulled by weakness in the Treasury 
bond market where the yield of the 
benchmark 30-year issue rose to 735 
percent from 733 percent Monday. 

The bond market was weighed 
down by an increase in i he govern-

to read the potential for inflation

Bank in Detroit. “No one wants to 
buy it-" , , 

The dollar's decline accelerated 
after the Treasury secretary, Lloyd 
Bentseo. resumed pressure oa Ja- 
pan to reduce its trade surplus with 
the United States. 

“Bentsen’s tough talk on Japan 
indicates that the administration 
isn’t going to defend a certain ex- 
change rate.” said Amy Smith, cur- 
rency-market strategist at IDEA, a 
consulting firm. 

The dollar often falls when the 
U.S. turns up the heal on Japan, as 
traders bet that the government 
will resume calls for a strong yen. 
The dollar fell as much as 20 per- 
cent last year after the government 
hinted that a strong yen would curb 
Japan’s trade surplus by making 
the country's exports more costly. 

Signs of "life in the German econ- 
omy also weighed on the dollar, 
traders said. The country's eco- 
nomics ministry said March indus- 
trial output figures for western 
Germany would be revised to show 
a gain of as much as 3 percent after 
a preliminary report Tuesday 
showed a 0.8 percent decline. 

With stronger growth, the 
Bundesbank will be under less 
pressure lo cut interest rates, a 
move that usually makes mark-de- 
nominated assets’ less attractive. 

“The dollar is a hot potato right 
now.” said David Durst a trader at 
Bear Steams & Co. “People buy it 
lose a little money, and get rid of it.

holding onto it for any amount of

LONDON —Coffee futures surged on Tues- 
day as a supply squeeze boosted markets on 
both sides of the Atlantic. 

Coffee for July delivery’ in London closed $80. 
or about 5.0 percent, higher Tuesday ji S 1.643 a 
metric ion. Prices have now risen b"v more than 
43 percent since the beginning of February, 
uhen the market bottomed at SU50. Ic New 
York, coffee for July delivery closed 94.05 cents 
pa pound, a 4.20 cent gam on the day. 

Declining output from many of the world’s 
growers combined with the effects of a plan by 
producers to withhold some exports has kepi 
supplies of coffee low. The plan to hold back 
coffee started late last year. 

T raders said some supplies were reaching the 
market from Indonesia. Brazil aad the Ivory 
Coast, but many doubled this would be enough 
;o cap the rally.

West German industrial output

ing to pretiminaiy data released 
Tuesday by the Economics Minis , 
tiy, bat the ministry said final fig- 
ures were likely to show moderate 
growth, according to a Renters dis-

The ministry said March output 
was down 0.8 percent both from 
February and the like month in 
1993, bnt it added that the monthly 
change was likely to be revised up-

French Protest EV Ruling 

Merger of German Potash Firms Is Challenged 

AFP-ExUt News 

BRUSSELS — French authorities are challeng- 
ing the European Commission's clearance of a 
fusion between two German potash producers, 
apparently over concern for a French company 
competing in the sane market. 

According to a notice in the European Union's 
Official Journal, the French government filed an 
actira with the European Court of Justice in Febru- 
ary, asking it to annul its December clearance of a 
joint venture between Western Germany’s Kali & 
Safe AG and Eastern Germany’s Mittddeuuche 
Kali AG, known as MDK, which is bring privatized. 

French authorities alleged that figures supplied 
by the commission during an in-depth inquiry con- 
cerning the merger contained “a serious error’' re- 
garding the quantity of potassium sold in Belgium 
by Soci&fc Commereiale dcs Potasses de F Azote, 
known as SCPA, a French producer in the market. 

The French authorities said the commission’s 
reasoning in allowing the merger was flawed in 
that it overestimated SCPA’s market strength. 

French authorities alleged that the commission 

made other errors, including defining the German 
market as separate from the rest of the Union, and 
failing to keep French officials informed about the 
investigation over the merger. 

According to the complaint, the commission 
aim inaccurately found that there were no other 
buyers for MDK besides Kali & Sab. 

East German Oil Project to Begin 

Elf Aquitaine $A and German/s Treuhand, the 
agency mat manages former East German state 
assets! said that construction of the Leuna oil 
refinery project in Eastern Germany will begin this 
month, Bloomberg Business News reported. 

The 4.5 billion Deutsche mark (527 billion) oil 
refinery wifi take three years to build and will have 
an annual output of 9 million metric urns. 

The Leuna project, seen by the German authori- 
ties as being of key importance for the redevdop- 
mem of the oil and petrochemical industries m

Eurocopter Hits a Strong Downdraft 

Bloomberg Business News 

PARIS — Eurocopter, Europe’s 
hugest helicopter maker, said Tues- 
day it expected to report a loss for 
1993 as high as 400 milli on francs 
(S70.6 mmion) sometime in the 
next two weeks. 

Chief Executive Franqois Bigay 
said results in 1994 could even be 

Mr. Bigay added that Euro- 
copter, winch is a joint venture of 
Daimler-Benz AG of Germany and 
Aerospatiale of France, has not 
won a single order in the military 
export market so far this year. 

He added that the global market 
for civilian aircraft in the fust quar- 
ter had fallen to half the level re- 
corded in the same quarter a year 

Paul Ruddle, an analyst at 
Natwest Securities Corp., predict- 
ed that the overall helicopter mar- 
ket would not improve until 1997 
or 1998 and even then would 
“struggle toward 1993 levels, but 
won't go a lot higher.*' 

The market for both military and 
civilian helicopters has slumped in 
recent years as governments cut 
military budgets and an economic 

recession cut civilian fleets. Eu- 
rope’s other large helicopter mak- 
ers, notably Westland PLC, have 
been encountering s imilar difficul- 

Mr. Ruddle estimated that the 
global market for military helicop- 
ters in 1993 was just short of $8 
billion and was expected to fall 
under 57 billion in 1994. UJS. or- 
ders have been especially worri- 
some and are likely to fall from a 
levd of 52 billion in 1993 to 51

Asset Sales Help Stora Return to Profit 

■ Compiled by Ov Staff From Dapaidta 

STOCKHOLM — Stora AJB said 
Tuesday it returned to profit in the 
first quarter, helped by lower inter- 
est charges resulting from sales of 
some operations ami other moves 
to reduce debt. 

The maker of paper and of forest 
and building products said it had 
earnings of 1.07 billion Swedish 
kronor ($141 nuflion) in the latest 
period, reversing a loss of 78 mfl- 
Son kronor a year earlier. 

The profit included one-time 
gains of 64 1 mfifion kronor, which 
came from the company's sales erf 
its flooring unit, Taikett AB, and of 
the Finnish operations of its Aker- 
lund & Reusing AB unit. 

The result also included a charge 
of 200 million kronor for a possible 
write-down on a pulp plant in Can- 

Selling the Talk ett and Akerlund 
& Reusing operations reduced the 
company’s net debt load by 3.95 
billion kronor. 

In addition, currency transla- 
tions from foreign subsidiaries re- 
duced net debt by 953 million kro- 
nor because of the strengthening of 
the krona. 

Store's total net debt stood at 
1822 billion kronor at the end of 
March, compared with 24.11 bil- 
lion kronor at the end of 1993. 

Speaking of its major markets. 
Store said the German market had 

shown a slight upturn in the spring 
and the British economy continued 
to improve. Europe accounts to 90 
percent of Stora sales. 

Pu^) prices, which were at a his- 
toric low last autumn, have been 
raised in stages, with the last in- 
crease to take effect June 1, the 
company said. Such rises have giv- 
en scope for higher cardboard and 
paper prices but the effect of these 
on earnings has been limited so far, 
Stora said 

The company's sales in the first 
quarter dropped to 11.46 billion 
kronor from 1258 billion kronor, 
while operating profit rose to 1 39 
billion kronor from 358 million 
kronor. (Reuters, Bloomberg, AFX) 

Opftl Plans to Eliminate 
Another 2,000 Jobe 

Agence FTance-Presse 

RUSSELS HEIM, Germany — 
Adam Opel AG, the German unit 
of Genaal Motors Corp-. said 
Tuesday it wauled to scrap another 
2000 jobs by the end of 1994. 

The number of employees at 
Opel which has already fallen by 
more i ban 5,000 since the end erf 
1992 is supposed to drop to fewer 
than 46,000 as a result of the latest 
announced job losses. 

years. It would not allow 
trading those rights to past or cur- 
rent underwriting years. 

But with the prospects for possi- 
ble lucrative future earnings, those 
who acquire the right to participate 
in syndicates also will assume the 
potential risks. 

The move win transform the cap- 
ital structure of Lloyd’s, said David 
Rowland, rfHrinnan of the market. 

The change could provide an exit 
for the names who have been dev- 
astated by the market's recent mas- 
sive losses because their personal 
wealth is locked into backing 
Lloyd’s insurance policies with un- 
timiled liability. 

Creating a tradable security 
from membership of Lloyd’s marks 
a complete departure from the way 
the insurance market has tradition- 
ally capitalized itself. 

Until this year, Lloyd's relied on 
the individual names to pledge 
their personal wealth as a guaran- 
tee to insurance policies written in 
the Lloyd's market Corporations 
were allowed to invest in Lloyd’s 
for the first time in January. 

Funds from the names and cor- 
porations are pooled into a syndi- 
cate, according to the type of risks 
they want to underwrite. When li- 
abilities do not exceed the amount 
of money taken in as premiums, 
names get a portion of me income 
reflecting the amount of the syndi- 
cate’s insurance they backed. 

AD Lloyd’s insurance carried un- 
limited liability until this year, with 
the introduction of corporate capi- 
tal That policy has been the bane 
of the names, who have been leav- 
ing the insurance market, eroding 
Lloyd’s capital base. Lloyd's saia 
its new initiative wonld strengthen 
the names’ rights. 

If names are able to trade their 
participation in syndicates, they 
“will require greater security of ten- 
ure and grater influence over im- 
portant decisions,'* Lloyd's said. 

Very briefly: 

• OMV AG, Austria’s stale-run energy and chemical company, posted a 
pretax loss of 924 million MMlings (S79 million) to 1993 that was 24

“There will always remain a 
shadow of suspicion on the deci- 
sions of this government’' said An- 
tonio Pilati, director of the Insti- 
tute for the Economics of the 
Media in Milan, 

The suspicion might be milder if 
Mr. Berlusconi’s business empire 
were in better shape. Bui the reces- 
sion and management problems re- 
sulting from rapid growth in the fat 
years have left Fininvest in finan- 
cial difficulty. 

Mr. Berlusconi’s critics accuse 
him of having offered political fa- 
vors in exchange to new invest- 
ment from Mediobanca, the insti- 
tution that holds the key to much of 
Italy’s financial market 
Paradoxically, the largest prob- 
lem facing Fininvest whose shares 
are wholly owned by Mr. Berlus- 
coni either directly or through fidu- 
ciary companies, may in the end be 
the loss of Mr. Berlusconi himself. 

in January, when he resigned as 
chairman, be turned to Fedde Con- 
faJonieii an old school friend, and 
Francesco Tato, 61, a tough execu- 
tive with a reputation as a turn- 
around specialist to help out his 

Mr. Confalotueri, 56, represents 
Flninvest’s club of “old boys" who 
beld on while the company grew at 
a dizzying pace. But that culture of 
size clashes with Mr. Tato’s culture. 
He entered Fininvest from Monda- 
dori six months ago. and his spe- 
cialty is trimming fat and tighten- 
ing management. 

“it was all easier when he was 
here, than now that he's not here." 
Mr. Tato said of Mr. Berlusconi. 
“It leaves us with the problem of 
changes that are necessary, without 
his charismatic imprint.** 

Analysts give Mr. Berlusconi 
high marks for his investment 
choices. He moved aggressively 
into financial services when the 
markets were exploding in Italy. 
He bought into Stands and several 
major advertising agencies just as 
Italian retailing began to modern- 
ize itself. 

By tile late 1980s. however, the 
advertising market was saturated, 
and recession was crimping con- 
sumer spending and Fininvest's 
cash flow. 

Moreover, the tangled group of 
companies had been largely assem- 
bled to dodge Italian lax laws. While 
debt was amassed at the top, taxes 
were paid at the operating level 
meaning little cash was available to 
meet huge interest payments. 

By 1992 the last year for which 
there are reliable figures, the prob- 
lem was enormous. Fininvest de- 
clared SI2 million in net earnings 
for that year, but Mr. Tato ac- 
knowledged that it had done so 
only by claiming extraordinary as- 
set gains of about 5142 minion. 

He insists (hat all the operating 
companies now are profitable, and 
lower interest rates bave reduced 
debt service; still, the situation has 
not dramatically improved. 

Indeed, six months ago, few were 
betting on Mr. Berlusconi. Apart 
from the debt problem, several 
company executives, including Mr. 
Berlusconi’s brother Paolo, were 
under investigation.. 

More significantly, perhaps, for 
Mr. Berlusconi's position a few 
months ago, the company’s debt 
was concentrated at major I talian 
banks led by Mediobanca and its 
honorary chairman, Enrico Cuccia, 
86, a baron of Italian finance. 

In the 1980s, only two major Ital- 
ian business executives — Mr. Ber- 
lusconi and Raul Gardinl head of 
the Ferruzzi industrial group — 
had remained aloof from the circle 
of industrialists around Mr. Cuc- 

When Ferruzzi collapsed last 
year, dumping billions of dollars of 
debt onto thebanks and prompting 
Mr. Gardini’s suicide, many be- 
lieved Fininvest would be next. 

But last October, Mr. Berlusconi 
called in Mr. Tato, a veteran of the 
electronics and office-machines 
maker Olivetti SpA. 

Mr. Tato says his task is essen- 
tially twofold. 

first, be intends to trim Flmn- 
vest to a financial holding company 
by transferring operating activities 
such as administration and data 
processing, and much rtf the group 
debt, to the operating companies 
and installing effective managers to 
create four large groups: publish- 

ing, fi n ancial products, retailing 
and television. 

Once this is accomplished, he 
said, the plan is to take these com- 
panies public.

1 HIGHWAY: Drawing the Map for the Information Road 

•b -n jvt "“"-t x m _ j nrrmflifon 

(TnmpiAfJ 6v t?«r Sft# From Dupaicfia 
SAN MATEO, California — Electronic 
Arts Inc. and Broderbund Software Inc. on 
Tuesday terminated a proposed S400 million 
merger that would have created the world's 
largest video gome and home software com- 

Broderbund will pay Electronic .Arts 510 
million for prompting the breakup after it 
failed to secure changes in the terms of the 
stock deal announced in mid-February. Both 
companies said the decision to end the merg- 
er was mutual, and they blamed recent de^ 
dines in their stock prices. 

The announcement surprised some ana- 
lysts and investors because the acquisition 
was seen as the easiest way for Electronic 

Arts to expand its business from video game 
software into the fast-growing education^ 
software markets. 

“Electronic Arts needed the acquisition to 
get into a business that it has bad a difficult 
time entering," said Keith Benjamin, an ana- 
lyst at the brokerage Robertson Stephens. 

Electronic Arts stock was down $1.25 late 
in the dav to $20.50. while Broderbund'* was 
up 55.00 to 559.75. 

Electronic Arts, based in San Mateo. Cali- 
fornia. is the nation's leading maker of video 
and computer game software. Broderbund is 
a consumer software company that offers a 
selection of products for use in homes, 
schools and small businesses. 

Ttip twn companies, with combined reve- 

nues of S394 million last year, control 17.5 
percent of the fad-growing consumer soft- 
ware market. 

The merger had prompted talk of similar 
deals in the"S5 billion software industry as the 
fight for dwindling retail space intensifies. 
Computer giants such as Microsoft Corp. and 
WordPerfect Corp. have recently announced 
their entry into consumer software, posing 
threats to iradiu'onsi leaders in the field. 

Some investment houses, including Cowen 
& Co. and Roberison Stephens, said they 
viewed Broderbund shares as worth buying 
despite the breakup, and upgraded their rat- 
ings on it.

Callback Services Hang Up Japan 

By Steven Brull 

International Herald Tribune 

TOKYO — Japanese bureaucrats, who 
seemingly toy to regulate everything from 
styles of student hairdos to the right to bid ou 
construction projects, have temporarily given 
in to an upstart group of American compa- 
nies offering cut-rate international telephone 

Several thousand subscribers have signed 
up for so-called callback services, marketed 
here by about 10 small American companies, 
which offer rates less than half those charged 
by Japan’s international telephone carriers. 

With callback systems, users generally dial 
a number in the United States, Bang up after 
it rings once and then wail a few seconds for a 
computer to call back and provide a dial tone. 
They can then make a call virtually anywhere 
to the world at discount rates. 

Although the callback companies’ presence 
in the Japanese market was minuscule, Koku- 
sai Den .shin Denwa, Japan's main interna- 
tional phone company, petitioned the gov- 
ernment in January to take action. 

The complaint, also signed by Japan's two 
other international carriers. International Te- 
lecom Japan and International Digital Com- 
munications. charged that callback systems 
unfairly exploited international telephone 
regulations that make a practice of not charg- 
ing for uncompleted calls. 

The petition also said the systems tied up 
circuits and deprived the companies of reve- 
nue. AT&T Coro, made a s imilar appeal to 
the U.S. Federal Communications Commis- 
sion last year, but the companies are still 

Officially, Japan’s Ministry of Posts and 
Telecommunications is still studying the is- 
sue. But administrators admit they are at a 
loss how to respond. 

“We have to establish a new regulatory 
system; but we haven't got any specific 
ideas,” said Hirokazu Suds, director of the 
ministry s tariff division. “The situation is the 
same in other countries.” 

In France and Germany, where callback 
companies are also attempting to make in- 
roads, authorities have expressed concern, 
but regulators in Britain appear untroubled 

by the new services. American officials, try- 
ing to balance the interests of major carriers 
such as AT&T and the upsun companies, are 
silting on the fence, Mr. Suda said. 

“This is a victory of the deregulated tele- 
communications industry in the U.S., which 
has spawned innovative technology," said 
Toshio Kawakami, president of the callback 
marketer USF Pacific Inc. 

Callback operators say their success is due 
solely to the high rates charged by phone

new regulatory system, 
but we haven't got any 
specific ideas. 9

companies outside the United States. It clear- 
ly has come m spite of the systems’ method of 
operation, which can be downright cumber- 
some to use when , canning a facsimile message 
from a computer, for example. 

These problems, along with the lingering 
uncertainty about their eventual legal status, 
have prevented operators from advancing 
into markets more quickly. But for a growing 
body of corporate and individual users, ibe 

prospect of cutting international phone bills 

in half is irresistit 

“If both the U.S. and Japanese markets 
were equally deregulated and cost-competi- 

tive, the niche for these services would dlsap- 


pear," said aU.S. official who asked not to I 

In fact, callback services have been made 
posable because of deregulation in the United 
States and been made successful by what 
might be railed pseudo-deregulation in Japan. 

KDD, the Japanese long-distance compa- 
ny, charges only slightly more than AT&T 
does for calls between Japan and the United 
Slates, and the difference largely reflects the 
rising value of the yen. But callback operators 
survive by reselling international circuits they 
have leased at volume-discount rates from 

MCI Communications Corp. and other com- 

In Japan, such resellers do not exist. They 
are not prohibited — in fact, the postal minis- 
try would like to encourage such businesses. 
But they do not exist largely because a group 
of legislators who are dose to the labor 
unions of the dominant domestic phone com- 
pany, Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Co- 
instructed the ministry not to require carriers 
to offer volume discounts to resellers. Not 
surprisingly, none of tbe earners has made 
any such offers volantarily. Tins is the pseu- 

“If KDD wants to compete, they ran re- 
duce their prices,” said Mr. Suda, the minis- 
try’s tariff director. "But KDD does not want 
to compete directly, even though we often tel] 
them to consider lowering their prices to deal 
with tbe present situation.” 

There is little disputing that callback ser- 
vices are getting a free ride on tbe interna- 
tional circuits of major carriers during the 
few seconds it takes for a computer to trace 
the source of tbe incoming calL 

“It’s a form of piracy,” Chuck Goto, an 
industry analyst at S.G. Warburg Securities, 

Callback operators say systematic exploi- 
tation of the regulations is nothing new. they 
point out that answering machine s, including 
one marketed by AT&T, have for years al- 
lowed users to determine whether they have 
any messages waiting for them by the number 
of limes tbe phone rings — meaning they can 
hang up if there aren’t any and not be 
charged for the «»n 

Still, most of the callback operators say 
they would be wilting to pay a reasonable rate 
to com the cost of tbe uncompleted call 

“We’re not interested in free-riding on a 
long-term basis,” Mr. Kawakami said. 

KDD, though, says it is not interested, 
arguing that accepting payment would be an 
endorsement of the services and that it would 
have to install expensive equipment to moni- 
tor the charges. Instead. KDD wants the 
companies to use more expensive toll-free 
numbers to route calls to the United States. 
Japanese companies share in the revenue 
from these numbers.

First It Was Stocks: Now, Companies Will Trade in Shanghai 


SHANGHAI — An electronic marketplace in 
which Chinese companies can be bought and sold by 
both domestic and foreign investors will begin opera- 
tions in Shanghai later this month, a market executive 
said Tuesday. 

media as a bold step forward in the country's plans to 
restructure its crumbling corporate base 'and attract 
more hard-currency investment. 

Tbe exchange president Gong Jiemin, said the first 
batch of 220 companies, with a total value of 2 billion 

The Shanghai Enterprise Frehange was officially 
fl with 38 members, mostly blue-chip 

formed in April 
financial institutions and industrial enterprises such as 
China Eastern Airlines and the Pudong Development 
Bank. There are plans to offer seats to fonagn congja- 
tries, although no timetable has been set . 

The exchange is being trumpeted by China's official

ion them Friday. 

market. Another 109 businesses are to join i 
Mr. Gong said that after the exchange opens near the 
middle of May, trading will take place every 20 days. 

The largest company of the 220 has been valued at 
mare than 100 milli on yuan and the smallest at 
290,000 yuan. 

Tbe long-term goal is to use tbe exchange to sefl state- 

owned factories, but for now the bulk of companies on 
offer are collective “township and village” enterprises. 
Collective enterprises are typically owned by local gens 
enunents, but operate on strictly capitalist lines. 

Details of tbe companies will be accessed on com- 
puter screens by exchange members, who wfl] act as 
brokers. The companies win be liked using code 
□umbers, and their names will be revealed only when 
an initial sale agreement has been reached. Stale- 
approved industrial assessment companies will pro- 
vide research on the companies and set what they 
consider to be a fair price. 

The listed price, however, will be intended only as a 

guide, with tbe actual price to be determined by 
competitive bidding. 

When it matures, the market could offer a new 
venue for direct foreign investment in China’s boom- 
ing economy. Many overseas companies are looking to 
expand their existing markets in the country by ac- 
quiring local enterprises. 

Half of China's slate factories are now losing mon- 
ey. and selling them raises problems about what to do 
with their debt and thdr bloated workforces. In addi- 
tion. state factories cannot be sold with the land they 
occupy. By contrast, collective enterprises are usually 
debt-free and are being offered lock, stock and band.

Papua New Guineans to Sue BHP 

■ Onnpiied tp Our StaQ From Dapareha 

! SYDNEY. — Broken MBPty. 
is to face a damages claim of 4 
billion Australian dollars ($2.85 
taHton) in a class action suit by 
6,000 Papua New Guinean vif- 
lagen who accuse the Australian 
: resources company.of destroying 
their way of Hfe, their lawyer said 

The claim is expected to be 
lodged at the snprane court rtf 
the State of Victoria in Mel- 
bourne on Thursday. 

The mining and resources gi- 
ant is accused of having dumped 
» to 100,000 tons of waste every 
from the Ok Tedi gold and 
copper mine into tbe Ok Tedi 
River, allegedly destroying tbe 
villagers’ wavoflife. 

Broken H31 said in a state- 

ment Tuesday that its position 
“derendc ’ 

would be 1 

Jed vigorously.” 

Nick Styant-Browne. the law- 
yer based in Melbourne who is 
repres enting the villagers, said 

that a subsistence lifestyle that 
had survived for thonsands of 
years had been wiped oat in the 
past decade by “an environmen- 
tal catastrophe.” 

But he said his dients were not 
wiring riwmggps from the gov- 
ernment of Papua New Guinea, 
which is a 20 percent shareholder 
in Ok Tedi Mitring Ltd. He 
main tamed that the company 
was only an “investment vehicle” 
for Broken HQ1, which was the 
major shareholder with more 
than % percent of the shares, 
and tbe sole manager since 1987. 
The government had been a 
“passive shareholder” and 
pushed for construction of a dam 
to prevent sludge from da m agi n g 
the river, he said. 

Broken ffiQ “made all the rele- 
vant decisions, in particular the 
environment decisions about the 
mine at ah relevant times,” the 

lawyer said. “It’s our view that it 
is likely th 

cely that many of those deci- 
sions were made in Melbourne, 
and the villagers want to bring to 
BHPs hometown the conse- 
quences of its corporate Irre- 

OwnosWp of the OK Tedi ven- 
ture is undergoing a restructuring. 
Broken Hill is expected to emerge 
with a stake of 52 percent, the 
government of Papua New Guin- 
ea with 30 percent and Metall 
Muring Corp. of Canada with 18 
percent. MetaO Mining is con- 
trolled by MetailgesdQschaft AG, 
the German metals processor,

Compiled by Our Staff From Dhpzttha 

A healthy dose of hustle and a 
solid game from “Mount Mu* 
tombo" kept the Seattle SuperSon- 
ics from sweeping the Denver Nug- 
gets in thdr first-round series. 

Dikeznfae Mutombo had 19 
points, 13 rebounds and six 
blocked shots, while Reggie Wil- 

blocked shots, while Reggie Wil- 
liams scored 3 1 points, as the Nug- 
gets, playing at home, posted a 1 10- 
93 victory Monday night in Game 3 
of the best-of-5 playoff series. 

A loud and enthusiastic crowd 


waved signs that read: “Mt Mu- 
tombo, 5,237 feet” a reference to 
Denver's mile-high elevation phis 
an additional seven feet for Mu- 
t ora bo's personal elevation. 

“We were hustling, blocking 
shots and rebounding, and that’s 
why we won," Mutombo said. “We 
had great intensity, and Reggie 
gave us some true leadership.” 

Denver bolted to a 15-point first- 
quarter lead, and the Sonics 
couldn't get their deficit below sev- 
en the zest of the way. 

Denver, ou [rebounded by 104-78 
the first two graes, held a 43-25 
advantage this time, outshot the visi- 
tors 60 percent to 43 percent and 
blocked !2 shots to Seattle's three. 

The victory, which end the Nug- 
gets* 1 1-game playoff losing streak, 
was thdr first in the playoffs since 
May 14. 1988. 

Seattle leads the series, 2-1, with 
Game 4 Thursday night in Denver. 
A fifth game, if necessary, will be 
played Saturday afternoon in Seat-

billions of lira, as Italian benefactors do-, they

That Mmm« that, as an En glishman, I con- 
cede defeat for the Loudon team Arsenal 
against Parma. It is a daring admission to make 
when one is traveling in the company of Arse- 
nal and its determined, technically cunning 
manager, George Graham. He insists, indeed 
he virtually commands, that the tenacity of 
Arsenal's team ethic will prove the equal and 
more of a Parma team whose individuals are 
unarguably more gifted, and whose promised 
bonus for winning the Cup Winners’ Cup is 
$225,000. Which is much is more than the 
collective sum that has been offered to the 
Londoners should they triumph. 

Parma is run by a coach, Nevio Scala, who

But it is not only the numbers that 

.. proved that the 1994 balls are 
“juiced up," the phrase of choice of 
baseball broadcasters everywhere (no in- 
ning or film clip would be complete 
without utterance of the phrase). 

No one has duplicated the Rawlings 

mystery. Smith, the Rawlings

tions, the manufacturing process and the 
testing process haven't dunged in any

balls for major league basdraH in 1976. 

quality control test in a bid to show that 

: balls are livelier, but some managers 
and players have reached that conclu- 
sion nonetheless. 

“I go by judging the orafidders," said ■ 
Tom Kelly, the Minnesota Twins’ manag- 
er. “Outfidders have been chasing balls all 
their life. When the ball goes up, they run 
for a spot They have a pretty good idea 
where the ball is going to come down. 

“What Fvc seen is outfidders go for 
the ball, and ah of a sudden they change 
their angle and go back, five or seven or 

drcumference. If the ball were wrapped 
tighter, as some people suggest, more 
yarn would have to be used to make the 
ball large enough, and that, in turn, 
would make the ball too heavy. 

Two managers, Fh3 Garner of the 
Milwaukee Brewers and Jim Leyland of 
the Pittsburgh Pirates, are among those 
who don't think the ball is different. 

Leyland opts for the weather as the 
most significant reason for the increase. 
Gamer also cites the weather, but his 
primary factor is the titters themselves. 

“It’s time to give credit to some of 

to Costa Rica in 1990. supplying its fust 
baseballs from there for me 1990 World 
Series, then for the 1991 season, but 
Smith said that didn’t chang e, anything. 

“Whether the ball is made in Costa 
Rica or St. Louis," Smith said from his 
office in Sl Lnuis. “it stQl has to meet 

the same specifications." Furthermore, 
the number of home runs dropped from 
1991 to 1992 before rising last season. 

The weight of the bah. Smith said, 
remains between 5 and 5% ounces, and it 
measures between 9 and 9tt indies in 

these good young hitlers who are coming 
own," he said. ‘There are big- 

in to their own," 

r, stronger guys than there were 10, 15 
are ago. and there are more of them.' 9 

years ago, 

“For some reason we don’t want to 
give credit for baseball bong better." he 
said. “We want to blast it for bring worse. 
The last five years or so, look at bow 
many quality players have come into the 
league. The 10 years 1 played, we didn't 
see that many quality players come in." 

Garner was speaking of established 
hitters like Frank Thomas, Ken Griffey 
Jr. and Juan Gonzalez, but consider the 

even newer players, rookies for the most 
part, who previously weren't around to 
hit home runs. 

Id April, Carlos Delgado of Toronto 
hit eight home runs; Manny Ramirez of 
Cleveland. Bob Hamelm of Kansas Gty 
and Javier Lopez and Ryan Klesko of 
Atlanta hit six each; Greg Fiikl of Seat- 
tle and Eduardo Perea of California five 
each and Jeffrey Hammonds of Balti- 
more hit four. 

Players generally are using lighter bats 
with thinn er handles, the idea bring that 
they can get the bat into the hitting zone 
faster. The faster the swing, the farther 
the ball will go with good contact In 
addition, many players are willing to risk 
a strikeout in an effort to hit a home run. 

“I see an all or nothing approach to 
hitting," said Willie Randolph, the Yan- 
kees’ third base coach. T see the head of 
the bat flying through the zone." 

Expanding that theme, Gamer noted 
that “we like sheer, raw power in our 
society. We like the in-your-face athletic 
prowess. That's what home runs are. I 
asked my 15-year-old son why is basket- 
ball popular. He said it's not the shoes bat 

h’s a great way to do in-your-face stuff." 

“It’s a great show-roe-up sport," Gar- 
ner said. “The home run is in your face. 
They throw their bat and stmt their 
stuff. That’s in your face." 

In April 51 players hit two or more 
home runs in a game. Last April that 
number was 25. Two players did it twice 
last yean six did it tins April 
Then there is the difference in the num- 

ber of home runs some players hit last 
Zeue of Sl Louis 

April and this: Todd 
went from 0 to 7; Jeff Kent of the New 
York Mets, 1 to 8; Steve Finley of Hous- 
ton, 1 io7;Tim WaBachof Los Angeles, 2 
to 8; Scott Cocper of Boston ana Julio 
Franco of the Chicago White Sox, 1 to 7; 
Kari Rhodes of the Chicago Cubs, 0 to 6. 

Players also have been hitting more 
opposite-fidd homers, though no statisti- 
cal service has data to show the increase. 

In probably the most bizarre develop- 
ment, amid the proliferation of home 
runs and runs, two pitchers, Kent 
Mercker of Atlanta and Scott Erickson 
of Minnesota, pitched no-bitters. The 
major leagues had not had two April no- 
hittere in 25 years, since 1969.

fs an increase of 15 percent Hits 
were up 5 percent and walks 7 percent 

The increase in walks would seem to 
xnpport the contention of many in base- 
Jbah that poor pitdung has contributed 
to tire increased offense; perhaps, it’s 
also a reflection of what some pitchers 
maint ain is a shrinking strike zone. 

. “There are some pitchers who say the 
umpires are stingy with tbe strike zone 
so they have to put the ball down the 
middle;” said Joe Torre, the St Loms 
Cardinals’ manager. 

-Evra if that’s not so, they are putting 

the ball down the middle. Expansion has 
watered down the pitching.”

The Cubs dropped to 0-1 1 at 
Wrigley this season, mating them 
the only team in the mriors without 
a victory at borne, ana set a team 
record for most consecutive home 
losses. The 1974 team lost 10 in a 
row in Chicago. 

“A guy could cry. but that’s not 
to do anything," said tbe 
tbs’ manager, Tom Trcbdhom. 

Bret Boone homered and drove 
in four runs for the Reds. Smiley 
strode out six. walked three and 
dropped the Cubs to 6-17, the 
worst record in the majors. 

The NL record for most consecu- 
tive home losses is 14, set by the 
Boston Braves in 191 1. The major' 
league mark at the start of a season 
is 17. set by the 1913 New York

stra, forced to leave Sunda/s game 
after banging his back against the 
center field fence, hit doubles in his

Dykstra was expected to miss the 
game, but bounced back. He also 
drove in two runs, scored twice and 
stole two bases.

The Associated Press 

Kirk Gibson loves the chance to 
be a late-inning hero. 

His three-run homer, as a pinch 
hitter in the 10th inning, gave tbe 
Detroit Tigers a 10-8 victory Mon- 
day over tin visiting Texas Rangers 
in the lone American League game. 

Tbe Rangers scored four runs in 
the ninth to tie, then got another in 
the top of tbe 10th to go ahead, 8-7. 
Hurt was the score when Gibson 
came to bat for Chris Gomez with 
two on and one out 

Ton Henke's first two pitches 
were high fastballs, and Gibson 
swung at both, missing badly. 

Hoke briefly considered a fork- 
ball on 0-2, but derided to stick 
with the fastball. Again it was high, 
out of the strike zone, but this time 
Gibson drove the pitch over tbe 
opposite fidd wall for his fourth 
homer of the season. 

“I guess I probably should have 
thrown him a forkbaD, but that’s 
just hindsight." Henke said. “He 
nit a good pitch. He just flicked his 
bat at the ball and I thought it was 
a fly baB. In any other park, it 
probably wouldn't have even made 
the wanting track." 

Gibson pumped bis fist as be 
rounded the bases, a celebration 
■similar to the ones after his World 
Series homers off Goose Gossage, 
in Detroit’s clinching victory over 
San Diego in 1984, and Dennis 
Eckersley, in Los Angeles Game 1 
triumph over Oakland in 1988. 

“It’s a great feeling to be able to 
do that for your teammates," he 
said. “We could have been really 
low, and instead everybody feels 
good. That’s the type of thing ev- 
eryone wants to do. 

The victory gave Detroit its first 
three-game winning streak this year.

Cleopatra Cat 

By Russell Baker 

N EW YORK - TTie Editor 
begs me not to do this, but I 
wiii do it anyhow. I will give the 
facts to thousands of readers who 
have written in; I will tell them who 
mehitabel was. 

The Editor expostulated vigor- 
ously on my decision. “In the first 
place,” be expostulated, “those 
weren’t thousands of readers who 
wrote asking who mehitabel was. 
They weren't even tens of readers-” 
1 reminded him that be was a 
journalist and that only a disgrace 
to the trade would balk at slightly 
inflating a number to make a more 
reader-friendiy newspaper. 

"Speaking of reader-friendly,” be 
expostulated further, "quit using 
words like 'expostulated.' People are 
very nervous about reading nowa- 
days. When you expostulate at them 
they panic and go back to ‘Beavis 
and Butt-bead’ to calm down.” 

I don’t give a fig for his incessant 
yammering about reader-friendly 
writing, and told him so. 

“Nobody gives a fig anymore," 
he re-expoatuiaied. “Nobody ever 
gave a fig in American prose writ- 
ing, and even in the popular Eng- 
lish novel nobody has given a fig 
since 'Raffles’ went out of prim.” 

As I want to talk mehitabel. not 
figs, let us push The Editor out the 
door and get down to literature. 
The thousands of you. or hundreds, 
or whatever the number of you may 
be who have written about this col- 
umn's recent literary reference to 
mehitabel will. 

The Editor (barging through 
door, speaking in stentorian voice): 
Don’t say “literary”! It’s reader- 

Let us eject him again, poor over- 
wrought fellow, Imagine him barg- 
ing in here speaking in a stentorian 
voice. And he has the gall to talk 
about being reader-unfriendly! 
Does he think we ail know Stentor 
was the Greek warrior with the 
thunderous voice who fought in the 
Trojan War? 

Personally, I didn't until J visited 
Mr. Webster a moment ago. While 
there, 1 looked up mehitabel who 
should have been located just be- 
fore Mehlis's gland (“one of the 
large unicellular glands surround- 
ing the ootype of a flatwonn and 
possibly playing a pan in eggshell 
formation”), but wasn't. 

Readers of this column should 
be cheered to learn that Mr. Web-

siw, who can talk oo types and uni- 
cellular glands, is as baffled as they 
are about mehitabel. 

All right, she was a cat friend of 
a cockroach named aichy. who had 
been a free- verse poet in an earlier 
life, archy infested a newspaper of- 
fice back in typewriter days and 
communicated with the journalist 
Don Marquis by hurling his weight 
onto the keys of Marquis’s type- 

Unable to jump on the shift key 
while simultaneously landing on a 
letter key, archy was unaWe to cap- 
italize words. Hence, mehitabel 
with the small ra. 


(The Editor has just sent an E- 
mail suggestion that 1 look for work 
teaching Literature if 1 feel com- 
pelled to persist in reader-hostile 
diversions from reader-friendly 
subjects like ridiculously inflated 
baseball and CEO salaries, dirty 
movies and dysfunctional families. 
Do not fear. I shall fax him later, 
stating my faith that in America 
there still survives a great audience 
like yon yearning to breathe not 
just free but also literature-wise.) 

archy and mehitabel began as 
newspaper writing, like so much of 
our best literature, if you will permit 
me not to rite examples, being reluc- 
tant to make any personal claims 
and not too proud to write ibe occa- 
sional incoherent sentence myself, if 
you get my drift. Later archy and 
mehitabd were put between book 
covers and so became literature. 

mehitabd became a favorite of 
mine after she told archy she had 
been Cleopatra in an earlier life. In 
this she so resembled many women 1 
know that she seemed an old frien ti- 
ll is amazing about the women I 
know that most of them were some- 
body famous in an earlier life. Sev- 
eral in fact, were Cleopatra, just 
like mehitabd. 

It’s a mystery why so many of 
these onetime Cieopatras are able to 
have another cradt at a life of wom- 
anhood while poor mehitabei was 
forced to come back as an alley cat l 
assume mehitabd was punished for 
having done a particularly odious 
job as Geopatra, but you can read 
and read in “archy and mehitabd” 
without finding the explanation. 

See what fun literature can be? 
Next time we’ll talk Balzac — “The 
Human Comedy!”

they started the whole thing back in the

sur Nuriddm and Sulieman d-Hadi are 
the only original Last Poets continuing to 
make “spoetics," spoken poetry. 

The two of them are sitting in the com- 
fortable conference room of their Parisian 
record label Bond Age, which has released 
“Scatterap/Home," a CD “as fresh as this 
morning’s milk. " S poetry comes easy to 
Jalal but they could not find an American 
company. Why not? 

Jalal does most of the talking (he is one 
heck of a talker): ‘This album is an Afri- 
can-American, Franco, Anglo joint ven- 
ture. We got blockaded in the States. Rap 
makes money there, but we're poets. Rap 
comes out of poetry, poetry does not come 
out of rap. They do not care about poetry 
in the States. All they want to know is your 
financial track record. If you cannot sell a 
certain amount of records, it's not worth 
their investment. You have to have a high 
profile and you have to be young. As far as 
they're concerned, our stidf Jue is over. 
Period. As you know, America has a ro- 
mance with nostalgia. We fall into the 
oldies- but-goodies bracket That’s not a 
good ghetto to be in.” 

The Last Poets have sold milli ons of 
records, mostly by word of mouth: They 
were never on the charts. Jalal sprays rhym- 
ing couplets like a semi automatic weapon: 
“The Present was always present The Past 
was right behind. The Future was coming 
but The Present had presence of mind. The 
Present looked left and said to The Past 
‘Well history is very very Last so come up 
with the thing that happened last come up 
with the thug that i don’t know so my 
knowledge and wisdom may understand 
and grow.' The Past said, *You have lost 
mcae than you have gained your animal 
spirit is still untamed.’” It ends: “The 
Future was last The Future spoke to broth- 
ers Present and Past The two time periods 
listened as it spoke. It said: The only thing 
I can offer maybe is hope.' ” 

The Last Poets were formed in Harlem, 
after an exiled South African poet named 
Willy Kgastik visited a writers' workshop 
and said: This is the last age of poetry and 
essays. Guns and rifles will take their 
place.” Some students said, That's what 
we are. the Last Poets.” and started rap- 
ping. a style of spoken language that de- 
scends from inma tes’ prison toasts. Then 
came GQ Soott-Heron (“he was a student of 
ours, we gave him a crash course"). Grand- 
master Flash. Kurtis Blow and tire second 
generation (“they were nappin’ whQe we 

. OgnttpRo* 

Stdiemao d-Hadi and, string, Jalaluddin Mansur Nnriddin: “Fresh asmflk”? 

were rappin’ The Poets started with spo- 
etics and percussion, now they sometimes 
smg a c c o mp ani ed by gnitarc and horns. 

Rap has come to be associated with 
scatology, misogyny and violence, and it 
communicates to millions of youths both 
black and white. How do the Poets feel 
about what they have wrought? 

“What's called rap today is a dog biting 
its tail” Jalal says. “A body without a 
head. Which is probably why it’s a com- 
mercial success. We are at the roots of rap, 
so we also know where tire buds are sip- 
posed to be. We laid down the foundation. 
Tire one who paves the path has to use a 
machete. People who come later just walk 
along the paved path. They don't have to 
do any work, we've done the work. The 

rest is just recycling. That’s why I, bail it a 
dog biting its tail. Tbe only positive ride I 
can see to today’s crop of rappers is. that 
they are able to communicate to each 
other. They’re sure not communicating to 
the people who make the decisions.” 

“Are your 

“I'm addressing everybody, particularly 
those with their fingers on toe button. We 
have to reach a common denominator, 
even if only subconsciously. If I start rap- 
ping streetology. HI only be talking to the 
cats on tire street. I’D be rapping in code. 
You got to be careful with argon The word ^ 
‘dude* for example comes from Westerns. 
So that dude is obsolete. The difference 
between a poet and a rapper is that poets 
wrap things up." 

You can say “I got the deal all wrapped 

up. " The word “rap.^ Jalafsays. has been 
in American speech since ai least the 
1920s. “Don’t pin flic rap on mc,".gahg- 
sters sakLIt’yalso a knodong.-sound -—a

means we are inside our sanity. Consider-
