Of crisis, and warned ibai after a year o!

sight 

Mr. Hata's grim assessment came amid grow- 
ing predictions that his minority gove rnmen t 
might rank among the shortest-lived in modem 
Japanese history. After 12 days in office, his 
cabinet has already deeply offended China and 
bouth Korea, said it sees no early end to its 
continuing, bitter arguments with the Clinton 
administration on trade, and has flip-flopped 
on the question of how it the country should 
deaj with North Korea. One of Mr. Hata’s own 
catenet members conceded at a press confer- 
ence Tuesday rooming that the administration 
- had “made the worst possible start' “ 

The traditional policy speech to Parliament 
was barely finished Tuesday before several of 
Mr . Hata's one-rime allies in the previous coali- 
tion government announced they were combin- 
ing forces. Together with the Liberal Demo- 
cratic Party, which Mr. Hata bolted last year 
when Japan's reform effort seemed more prom- 
ising. they easily have enough votes in Pariia- 
. meat to the defeat the new prime minister when 
■ they choose. 

Mr. Hata tried in his speed! Tuesday to 
repair some of the rinmagp done by his former 
justice minister, Shigeto Nagano, who had de- 
nied that Japan was an aggressor in World War 
II and called the Rape of N anking , the 1937 
massacre in China that left mare than 150,000 
dead, a “fabrication. 1 ' Ever since, Japanese dip-

Dollar Soars on Interest Rate Signals 


By Bill Keller 

New York Tima Sotw 

PRETORIA — With the commanding digni- 
ty that has carried him through more than a 
half-century of defiance, captivity and concilia- 
tion, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela became the 
first blade president of South Africa on Tues- 
day. 

He stood before a crowd of world leaders 
who shunned this capital during its decades of 
infam y, and in a husky, resolute voice swore the 
oath to become the 10th leader of South Africa 
since its union in 1910, but the first elected with 
the participation of the black majority. 

He opened his presidency with an intimate 
speech of shared patriotism, speaking of South 
Africans’ common exhilaration in the seasons 
and the soil their common pain for their coun- 
try’s humiliation before the world and their 
shared relief at being readmitted to the compa- 
ny of civilized nations. 

“Never, never, and never again shall it be 
that this beautiful land will again experience 
the oppression of one by another and suffer the 
indignity of being the skunk of tbe world," be 
said.

The dollar and U.S. Treasury bond prices 
rallied Tuesday as financial markets began to 
accept the U.S. administration’s message that 
it would not use tbe American currency to 
force Japan into trade concessions and that 
tbe Federal Reserve Board meant business 
about raising interest rates to fight inflation 
and protea the dollar. 

Less than one week after the Fed. the 
Bundesbank, and 15 other central banks 
Spent an estimated S5 billion intervening in 
foreign exchange markets to prop up tbe

“it wifi take a wbilc before many cmmtiies

Japan's National Defense Institute, said the 
other day. “After a year in which Japan apolo- 


gized and began to heal senne of the wounds, 
there are countries now wondering if we were 
sincere.” 

Mr. Hata openly ad mi tted Tuesday that the 
country's political fragility “is not normal” and 
was already talking about holding a new dec- 
lion. 

His speech was devoid of new ideas on open- 
ing trade, lax. reform or deregulation. 

“Tbe speech had no specifics," former Prime 
Minister Kiichi Mryazawa, a leader erf the lib- 
eral Democrats, said Tuesday night on televi-

rates again and that the Bundesbank would 
reduce them. 

I The dollar ended New York trading at 
1.6725 Deutsche marks, up from 1.6540 
Monday, and at 104.415 yen, up from 
1G2JS0 yen. At these levels the dollar made 
np row* of the ground it had lost over the 
past two weeks. 

The benchmark 30-year U.S. Treasury 
bond rose 1 13/32 point, to 85 1 1/32. taking 
the yield down to 7.50 percent from 7.63 
percent Monday. The Dow Jones industrial 
average and most other equity indexes also 
rose. 

Snce last week, markets have been hang- 
ing -on die Fed’s every move, expecting it to 
e nginee r an increase in the federal funds 
target rate from 3.75 percent to at least 4 
percent, and a half-percentage point rise in 
the discount rate to 3 JO percent. When the 
Fed was silent Monday, markets sagged and 
Treasury brad yields surged. 


But on Tuesday, overseas investors suited 
buying Treasury bonds for their high yields. 
At tbe same time members of the U.S. admin- 
istration lined up in an attempt to convince 
traders and investors that the United Slates 
has never wanted tbe dollar to weaken 
against the yen or any other currency. 

Rumors circulated in European financial 
centers and on Wall Street on Tuesday that 
the Federal Reserve and the Bundesbank 
were posed to launch a joint effort on inter- 
est rates — with the Fed moving them up and 
the Bundesbank down. The Fed is expected 
to raise rates on or before its next Open 
Market Committee meeting on May 17. The 
German central bank might cut its discount 
rate as early as Wednesday. 

Analysts said a coordinated centra! bank 
move on interest rates, coming soon after a 
coordinated foreign exchange intervention, 
would send an unmistakable signal of sup- 
port for tbe dollar. 


Aide; 10 President Bill Clinton and a Fed 
official denied the administration ever warn- 
ed the dollar to fall, countering persistent 
market speculation mat the United States 
was pursuing such a policy to balance trade 
with Japan." 

*We never had a it rung-veil policy." W. 
Bowman Cutler, deputy assistant to the pres- 
ident for economic policy, told Bloomberg 
Business News. "We've never regarded the 
yen-dollar exchange rate as a mailer of poli- 
cy." 

The dollar also drew strength on Tuesday 
from a statement by Mr. Clinton on Monday 
that hi., talks v. ith PrLae Minister Tsutomu 
Hata of Japan had left him “very hopeful" 
that trade talks between the countries would 
resume. 

The dollar tumbled 20 percent a gains t the 
yen over the past year after U.S. officials said 


Asa token of renewal Mr. Mandela promised 
that an amnesty would be announced soon for 
“various categories" of prisoners. 

He lavished praise on F. W. de Klerk, the 
president who collaborated with him in negoti- 
ating the end of white rule and who on Tuesday 
took the oath as one of Mr. Mandela's two 
deputy presidents in a unity government. 

“The sun shall never set on so glorious a 
human achievement." Mr. Mandela declared. 

In a postinaugural visit to the 50,000 citizens 
celebrating on the lawn far below the govern- 
ment buildings, Mr. Mandela held Mr. de 
Klerk’s hand aloft and bailed his predecessor as 
“one of the greatest reformers, one of the great- 
est sons of our soil.” 

For tbe day. at least, blacks and whites were 
united by the mutual strain of taking in the 
recently unimaginable: 

Fidel Castro making his first visit to the 
country that tried to pulverize his army in 
Angola, the only one among the scores of digni- 
taries tingled out by the crowd for lusty shouts 
of “Viva!" 

Muslim and Hindu prayers being broadcast 
into the air of what has been the most rigidly, 
officially Christian of capitals.

PARIS — France and its European partners 
have decided to make a last-ditch effort to 
persuade tbe United Stales and Russia that the 
time has come for the international community 
(0 impose a political settlement on the warring 
factions in Bosnia-Herzegovioa.

Friday of foreign ministers from Europe, Rus- 
sia and tbe United States failed to achieve a 
consensus on an international peace plan, Eu- 
ropean countries would begin preparing the 
withdrawal of their peacekeeping troops from 
Bosnia, a move that could scuttle the 38.000-

BERLIN — To his family and frieads. Jeffrey Sehevitz is a compas-

accomplished academic who left the United States two decades ago to 
bran a new life as a sociologist in Germany. 

To German counterespionage officials, Jeffrey Sehevitz is a spy and 
betrayer of his adopted country, a man who for a dozen years Tunneled 
nuclear secrets to the Communist rep me in the former East Germany. 

Mr. Scbevuz. 53. now sits in a German jail since his arrest last week 
on suspicion of espionage. 

The federal prosecutor's office contends that, from 1977 to 1989. Mr. 
Sehevitz passed “a multitude of information and documents" to the 


East German Ministry for State Security — the notorious Stasi — by D I 
exploiting his position as a researcher at a Berlin university and later hisfifC MXCUa 
job at Germany's Nuclear Research Center in Karlsruhe. ~ 


Mi. Scbevitz’s American wife, Beatrice Altman, also was arrested on m appropri; 
suspicion of having smuggled sensitive information to a Stasi case 
officer in East Berlin, but she was released. responsible

TOKYO —Japanese nuclear or- 
ficials acknowledged Tuesday that 
a design flaw in the coumry's plu- 
tonium fuel-making plant had 
made it difficult to track the where- 
abouts of 70 kilograms of plutoni- 
um, but they insisted that tests 
yjj showed it had not been diverted 
jj from the plant. 

Officials said the plutonium for 
“ Japan’s much-criticized program to 

“breed" plutonium as fuel for reac- 

tors had amply accumulated in the 
jj, form of dust and waste inside the 
plant. But the amount was so large

BEIJING — Yu Haocbeng, a former 
Communist propaganda chief who became a 
vociferous proponent of democracy in China 
during the 1 980s. will be allowed to leave the 
country later this month to study and lecture 
at Columbia University. 

Ten previous petitions to go abroad were 
refused by Communist Party authorities. 

Mr. Yu, 66, the former chief editor of the 
Masses Publishing House, an organ of Chi- 
na's Public Security Bureau, received a Chi- 
nese passport this week allowing him to 

apply for a visa to enter the United States. 

China's decision to gram Mr. Yu an exit 
permit is an important step in its efforts to 
comply with one pan of President Bill Clin- 
ton's May 1993 executive order on human 
rights in China. Mr. Yu was first on the list of 
Chinese dissidents whose unsuccessful at- 
tempts to leave the country were raised by 
the State Department’s senior human rights 
official John Shauuck, last fall. 

The resolution of Mr. Yu's case follows 
the release last month of Wang Juntao. one 


of the leaders of the 1989 Tiananmen Square 
uprising who had received a 13-year prison 
sentence in 1991 and was suffering from 
hepatitis. He was put on a flight to New York 
lo seek treatment on “medics! parole." 

Human rights organizations hailed Mr. 
Wang’s release, but they also stepped up 
their efforts to demonstrate that China's hu- 
man rights record has been deteriorating in 
some important respects, including the con- 
tinued detention without charge of the coun- 
try's most well-known dissident, Wei Jing- 
sheng, his secretary, Tong Yi, and thousands 
of other political and religious detainees. 

As Mr. Yu was receiving the news about 
his passport in Beijing, security authorities in 
Shanghai appeared to be carrying out a new 
crackdown on a group of dissidents with four 
reported arrests. 

In February, Mr. Yu had told associates 
that be was very discouraged after his ninth 
request to leave China was turned down. He 
has been seeking to lake part in academic 
programs abroad. 

A Western diplomat who has followed Mr. 
Yu’s case said the news of his freedom to 


travel was "very encouraging" and also "very encouraging China lo take bolder steps to 
significant" because his case was "one of the end human rights abuses. They have said 
more difficult ones" that the Clinton admin- that doing so will give Mr. Clinton greater 


titration had hoped to resolve this month. 

Mr. Yu was not available for comment, 
but he has told associates that he is looking 
forward to ending his state of internal exile, 
which has prevented him from working or 
publishing in China for more than five years. 

He has bought an airline ticket to leave the 
country on May 28. 

By June 3. Mr. Clinton must decide wheth- 
er China has made "overall significant pro- 
gress” in human rights, as the executive order 
requires, or face the cancellation of its most- 
favored -nation trade status on S30 billion in 
exports to the United States. 

Mr. Clinton, in remarks last week, strong- 
ly indicated thai he was not inclined to 
cancel the trade agreement with China be- 
cause to do so "would undermine what I 
hope to see in terms of our relationship" and 
“it would be detrimental lo the economic 
progress of China and to the standard of 
living which has come to so many millions." 

Administration officials have openly been 


political support in Congress to sect a China 
policy that is not held hostage to the animal 
renewal of trading privileges. 

Along with astrophysicist Fang Lizhi, who 
lives in exile in the United States, Mr. Yu 
was the first of China's intellectuals to assert 
that human rights were not something to be 
granted by the Communist Party, but rather 
were inherent and inviolable. 

la November. Mr. Yu challenged the as- 
sertion widely stated by Chin a's lea ders that 
international pressure over human rights 
amounts to interference in its internal af- 
faire. 

"If it is the sovereign government winch 
infringes or tramples upon the human rights 
of its citizens" then “all the resolutions safe- 
guarding h uman rights passed by the United 
Nations are but a mere scrap of paper,” he 
wrote in an address, delivered in absentia, to 
a Hong Kong symposium on “H uman rights 
in Europe and Asia."

China Denies Army Role in KiHiags 

BEUING (AFP) — For the first ume, China has «plkatly riiled out 
involvement in the murder of 24 tourists from Taiwan in Kfareh.

pp The incident, disclosed by a 
Washington-based group, the Nu- 
U2 clear Control Institute, which op- 
ijj, poses Japan's use of plutonium for 
Ip, a new new generation of nuclear 
^ reactors, is an additional setback 
' K for Japan's nuclear program. 

« The effort to recycle nuclear 
f j waste into fuel has been slowed 
05 drastically because of its tiemea- 
lt( dously high cost and because of 
growing fears overseas that Japan

William J. Perry said that if Japan

m — its supplies of plutonium would

French Leaders Split on Atomic T^sts 

PARIS (Renters) — President Francois Mitterrand, a Socialist, aaj 
Prime Minister Edouard Bahadur, a conservative, clashed publkly on ^ 
future of French nuclear weapons tests Tuesday. ■ _ . ... . 

“It is a major point of disagreement, Mr. Mitterrand said a

Mr. Mitterrand also criticized Mr. Ballad Ur’s social and tdusinn

South Claims to Block North Ye 


ROME (Reuters) — Argentine police have arrested a former Goman 
Nazi SS captain, Erich Pnebke, who is wanted in connection xrith the 
worst war crime committed in Italy, the Italian Interior Ministry said 
Tuesday. 

A minis try official said the arrest took place in the southern Andean 
resort of San Carlos di Bariloche, where Mr. Priebke, 81, had lived 
peacefully for 46 years until he was traced to the town by the" U A 
television network ABC 

His arrest followed the issuance on Monday of a warrant by an Italian 
military prosecutor who wants to try him in connection with then 
killings in March 1944 of 335 Italians at the Ardeatine Caves near!

ADEN. Yemen — Southern Yemen’s mili- 
tary command, locked in civil war with forces 
from the north, said Tuesday its troops had 
blocked a big new push by their foes seeking to 
capture Aden. 

The thrust toward the southern city, head- 

3 waiters of Vice President Ali Salem Baid, was 
ie north's ninth attempt to cross the old bor- 
der between former North and South Yemen, 
Aden Radio said. 

"It looks like we are moving towards stale- 
mate." a Western analyst said of rival victory 
claims that have marked seven days of fighting. 

The northern military, loyal to President Ali 
Abdullah Saleh, said Tuesday that its forces 
shot down two southern Sukhoi fighter-bomb- 


ers in battles Monday for control of the ap- 
proaches to Aden. 

It repealed claims that northern forces were 
only five kilometers (three miles) from the port 
city, saying one brigade was in Dar Saad on the 
outskirts while other forces were advancing 
from other fronts. 

Aden said that its enemy had been cleared 
from the approaches to the' city and that fight- 
ing was now centered on three border districts 
in mountainous regions 100 kilometers north of 
Aden. 

The southerners denied that northern forces 
were anywhere near Dar Saad. a suburb on the 
edge of Aden's Sheikh Oth man township. 

It was not possible to confirm the south's 
report that the latest northern push at the old 


■j 2.1L, 

border had been thwarted. Aden Radio said 
four units, including two full brigades and Col- 
onel Saleh's elite Republican Guard, had been 
repulsed. 

Meanwhile, foreign governments from Asia 
to Europe scrambled to evacuate nationals by 
air and sea. 

Two hundred people, including oil workers. 
French tourists and a wounded southern soldier 
ferried by the French warship Le Var arrived in 
Djibouti on Monday night. " 

The north put iii casualties since full-scale 
battles erupted last Wednesday at 9! dead and 
314 wounded. A southern statement said 38 
people were killed in a single battle on Monday. 
Aden has yet to publish overall casualty figures 
for Lhe southern forces.

NAIROBI — The United States, 
in its first military involvement in 
Africa since the iH-fated Somalia 
operation, said Tuesday that it was

SEOUL — North Korea has 
pulled back from a threat to carry • a • wr r ■ o - 

out the controversial replacement Argentina SeiZCS WaKinme oUSDect 
of nuclear fuel rods without the “ _ _ ... * • 

presence of international monitors, 
according to officials and press re- 
ports Tuesday. 

Pyongyang had rejected Interna- 
tional Atomic Energy Agency de- 
mands for United Nations experts 
to test the fuel rods to settle a 
dispute on whether North Korea 
has developed a nuclear bomb. 

But North Korea now appears to 
have responded favorably to U.S. 
mediation in Lhe dispute over out- 
side sampling. South Korean For- 
eign Ministry officials said. 

The fuel rod operation appears 
to be i mmin ent, and South Korean 
officials have threatened to discuss 
sanctions with Washington unless 
North Korea allows sampling by 
the agency. 

Last Friday, the atomic agency 
said it would not send monitors 
unless they could test to see wheth- 
er fissile material had been diverted 
for military purposes. 

During talks Tuesday in New 
York, Washington pressed North 
Korea to delay changing the rods, 
according to South Korea's Yon- 
hap press agency. 

“There is a possibility of finding 
a breakthrough in their negotia- 
tions," Yunhap quoted a diplomat- 
ic source in Washington as saying. 

Pyongyang also showed willing- 
ness to allow additional nuclear 
checks and change film in surveil- 
lance equipment But North Kore- 
an officials remained opposed to 
allowing inspectors to collect sam- 
ples. 

“Therefore, the two sides could 
be seeking a compromise on this 
point" an official source said. 

The source added that U.S. ne- 
gotiators also had pressed the 
atomic agency to reopen negotia- 
tions with North Korea on sending 
an inspection team. 

The nuclear issue could be re- 
ferred back to the UN Security 
Council if Pyongyang and the 
atomic agency fail to agree on nu- 
clear inspections this week. 

U.S. officials stressed Tuesday 
that high-level talks between 
Pyongyang and Washington could 
be broken off if inspectors were not 
present during the changing of the 
fuel rods, Yonhap said.

TOKYO — A China Airlines plane that 
crashed last month killing 264 people suffered a 
mysterious power failure moments before it 
crashed and exploded at j Japanese airport, 
investigators said Tuesday. 

“I have no recollection of a case like this, an 
apparent failure of all power." said Manabu 
Matsumoio. chairman of the Transport Minis- 
try's Aircraft Accident Investigation Commit- 
tee. 

But Mr. Matsumoio. announcing an interim 
report of the committee's findings, said he did 
not yet know whether the pilot or the Taiwan- 
ese airline's Airbus A -300 was to blame for the 
crash, which occurred at Nagoya airport in 
central Japan on April 26. Only seven people 
survived. 

“We have not started the full analysis of the 
available data.” Mr. Matsumoio said. “We 
have no theories or conclusions. 1 ' 

Electricity on the Airbus is normally provid- 


ed by generators in both engines and an auxilia- 
ry power unit. Mr. Matsumoio said he did not 
know how all three systems could have failed at 
the same time. 

The power failure deprived investigators of 
crucial clues from the cockpit voice recorder 
and the digital flight data recorder, he said. 

A rough analysis of the flight and voice 
recorders showed the 26-year-old co-pilot, who 
was flying the Airbus A-300B4-622R as it ap- 
proached the runway, came in loo high and 
activated an electronic “go- around” device to 
make another landing attempt. 

But contrary to instructions provided by the 
plane's makers. Airbus Industrie, the co-pilot 
seems to have pushed down the control wheel 
while in the go-around mode, causing the plane 
to come close to stalling, Mr. Matsumoio said. 

At this point, he said, the plane's advanced 
anti-stall protection system may have taken 
over, causing the engine to increase thrust. Thai 
could have had the effect of throwing the air- 
craft into a sleep climb that preceded the crash. 


“It is important to note that otto planes of 
the same type have come out of such dangerous 
situations,” Mr. Matsumoio said.^ “We Italy dto 
not know where the power failure fits m this 
picture." 

The Transport Ministry issued a warning 
Tuesday to Japan Air System, wind) opera*® 
the same type of Airbus, to heed the 
instructions or change computer software so 
captains can easily override tin; auto-pitot sys- 
tem. 

The ministry released the text of a wanting 
contained in the Airbus A-300-600R's op?^~ 
ing manual saying the plane’s compute-®® 
controls remain in partial operation even when 
a pilot attempts to override them. Thai 
lead to a hazardous situation" during landings 
and in go-around mode, the manual said. 

The ministry said Airbus Industrie had sent 3 
recommendation last year to all airlines using 
the A-300-600 series saying they should reptoj 
its computer software. It was endear wto*®" 
China Airlines had done so. (Revsen, A"l

Kennedy Lays Out His Plan 


WASHINGTON — Edward M. Kennedy, 
the Senate's senior campaigner for national 
health insurance, proposed changing Presi- 
dent Bill Clinton's health care plan (o broad- 
en individuals' choice of insurance and to 
lighten the burden on the smallest businesses. 

The Kennedy plan is instantly influential, 
not only because it got Mr. Clinton's back- 
ing, but also- because Mr. Kennedy heads the 
Senate Conuninee on Labor and H uman 


a year ago. re-emerged Tuesday as a possible 
nominee as President Bill Clinton neared a 
decision on a new justice. 

An administration official involved in the 
search said the finalists were Judge Breyer, 
Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt and three 
federal judges: Richard Arnold of Arkansas. 
Jose Cabranes of Connecticut and Amulya 
Kearse of New York. 

Consideration of Judge Breyer, a federal 
appeals court judge, was kept secret for 


Resources, the only congressional committee 
imetable for completing a health 


weeks by White fiouse officials fearing „ 
repeat or the spectacle surrounding Mr. Clin- 
ton's 1993 search. 

Judge Breyer, promoted as a front-runner 
that time, left his hospital bed for u White 
House interview with Mr. Clinton, only to 
watch the nomination go 10 Ruth Bader 
Ginsburg in June. 

The Boston jurist made a previously 
scheduled speech Tuesday in Washington, 
returning to Massachusetts almost immedi- 
ately. It was unknown whether he met with 
Mr. Clinton or While House officials while in 
town. 

Judge Breyer. 55. did not return telephone 
calls to his home and office, and the While 
House declined to comment. 

Judge Breyer’s chances were hurt last year 
by a last-minute revelation that he had failed 
to pay Social Security taxes for a household 
worker. The While House insisted at the lime 
that the lapse had nothing to do with Mr. 
Clinton's decision, and the "nanny" issue is 
not as politically charged as it was a year ago. 

Mr. Clinton met 'with his search team 
Tuesday to discuss his options. 

The nominee will replace the retiring Jus- 
tice Harry Blackmun. i.4Pj

The Massachusetts Democrat worked out 
his proposal in consultation with the White 
House and with Senator George J. Mitchell 
of Maine, the leader of the Democratic raa- 



any 

insurance choices federal workers have. 

Mr. Kennedy also proposed raising more 
money than Mr. Clinton would through 
higher taxes on tobacco and targe corpora- 
tions as well as higher out-of-pocket pay- 
ments by individuals. 

In his proposal Monday, Mr. Kennedy 
followed the baric outlines of the Clinton 
plan, but he added benefits for women and 
the elderly and disabled, who have been sup- 
portive but not ecstatic. He offered conces- 
sions to small businesses while seeking to 
enlist the support of the insurance industry' 
by requiring universal coverage but not com- 
pelling anyone to join an insurance-buying 
cooperative.. ' tSYTi

sources of the president. 

Gilbert K. Davis, a Fairfax. Virginia, law- 
yer who has been active in Republican Party 
politics, would no: discuss hi* fee arrange- 
ment with Mrs. Jones, but denied suggestions 
by White House aides and Clinton support- 
ers that he and his co-counsel in the case arc 
being paid by conservative croups. 

Mr. Davis said that he had been contacted 
by individuals — he declined to identify them 
— who have offered to help raise money for 
his client and that he was encouraging them 
to do so. 

"We're not guing to be refusing help be- 
cause it certainly will he required." Mr. Da- 
vis said. "There have been people who have 
been saying. We're going to try and do some- 
thing." 

Mrs. Jones's cause has been championed 
by several conservative organizations. Last 
week, this prompted Mr. Clinton's chief law- 
yer. Robert S. Bennett, to charge that Mrs. 
Jones was being "used " by the president's 
enemies and that her lawsuit was a pan of a 
political plot to "rewrite" the results of the 
1992 election. , li'P/

One subject of the conversation 
was the fall of Saigon in 1975, 
which this correspondent covered 
for The New York Times. 

Imposing in his olivergraen um- 
fum ami general’s shoulder tabs, 
..General Giap was avuncular and

thought an American ought find

we shall probably noi need to con- 
front such threats again. We Viet- 
namese are optimists. 

“But even though we face no 
shooting war in Vietnam, the world 
is in a very uncertain state, and 
Vietnam must always be willing io 
sacrifice to protect its freedom." 

He praised the “fairness" cf 
American journalists, and said that 
after retiring from active command 
he had turned his attention increas- 
ingly to the war against pollution

ronment, causes he knew io be pop-

General Chap’s masterly com- 
mand of logistics and maneuver, 
and his deployment of artillery at 
the isolated Dien Bien Phu fortress 
in 1954, caught the French defend- 
ers by surprise and stunned world 
leaders; a peasant army had 
brought a well-armed European 
force to its knees. 


General Giap’s 1962 book “Peo- 
ple’s War, People’s Army,” which 


outlines ihe mixture o/ political 


warfare and military strategy that 
was his hallmark, became a test- 
book for guerrilla insurgents in

Washington hopes the new defense-related technol- 
ogy exchange program will allow the United States to 
lower the cost and raise the sophistication of weapon- 
ry by drawing on Japan’s expertise in the low-cost 

manufacturing of advanced products. 

The Defense Department is also hoping to bring 
more balance to what it views as a one-way flow of 
technology. It says the United States has transferred 
know-how to Japan, often in the form of licenses 
allowing Japanese companies to build U.S.-designed 
airplanes and weapons, but has gotten little in return. 

The Defense Department “invests a lot of money in 
technology." a Clinton administration official said. 
“We transfer a lot of technology to Japan and one of 
the things we want is to get back some technology." 

Another reason for the new exchange, he said, is 
that Japan now leads the world in some technologies 
needed by the military.

MEXICO CITY — In a sign of 
growing American concern that po-

the opportunity of a twice-yearly 
meeting of senior U.S. and Mexi- 
can officials to praise the economic 
and political changes undertaken 
by President Carlos Salinas de 
Goriari and voice confidence that 
the Aug. 2 1 vote would be free and 
fair.

ing the voter rolls, prohibiting the 
political use of government funds, 
new limits on campaign spending 
and more equal access to the news 
media for opposition parties. 

Yet, the officials said their warn- 
ings also reflected a sense that some 
officials in the Mexican cabinet are 
resisting the proposed changes and 
that despite the passage of other 
measures their success will still de- 
pend on how they are put into ef- 
fect.

from the agenda of the so-called 
Binational Commission to convey 
the Clinton administration’s belief 
that Mexico must leave behind the 
fraudulent practices and contested 
results of its electoral past if ties 
between the two countries are to be 
strengthened. 

“Any kind of challenge to the 
legitimacy of the election will be a 
tremendous problem for our rela-

officials who discussed the Ameri- 
can position. 

“There is & feeling that the gener- 
al lines of the electoral reforms they 
have laid out are in the right direc-

to election-law changes that the 
Mexican Congress has approved in 
recent months or is now consider-

these things are working out in the 
way they should."

Russia’s New Troika: Govemmetit, Business and Crime 


By AJessandra Stanley 

New York Times Service 
MOSCOW — In the early morning, on a 
not quite empty city street recently, two 
men fired at each other with Kalashnikov 
semiautomatic assault rifles in a shoot-out 
that left one of the gunmen, a reputed 
member of organized crime, dead. 

As slayings go. it was not an unusual 
confrontation in the new. crime-ridden 
Russia — except that the one who walked 
away was a young, reform-minded member 
of Parliament. 

The shooting, which the legislator said 
was in self-defense, was one of the more 
graphic demonstrations or how violence 
and organized crime have infected every 
level of Russian life, but it was not even the 


first or its kind. Four days earlier, a mem- 
ber of Parliament was gunned down out- 
side his Moscow apartment. 

The combination of guns and govern- 
ment is not novel in the new Russia. But 
the latest incident, along with the recent 
arrests of high-level officials. lifted for a 
moment the thin veil behind which govern- 
ment. business and organized crime col- 
lude. 

On Friday, Izvestla reported that a 
group of senior officials in the Interior 
Ministry had been charged with operating 
a protection ring for well-connected gang- 
sters, which included using their influence 
in high places to help killers, kidnappers, 
and thieves stay out of jail. 

“It is not just the ties between business 


and organized crime that worry me.’ said 
Konstantin Borovoi, a Russian multimil- 
lionaire and politician who has narrowly 
escaped assassination twice in the last year. 
“I am far more worried about the links 
between the government and organized 
crime." 

Many officials are corrupt, and entrepre- 
neurs complain that they are squeezed for 
money and favors by government authori- 
ties as well as the racketeers loosely known 
as the mafia. 

But good guys and bad guys are not so 
easily divided. Sometimes Russian busi- 
nessmen are victims of criminal groups; 
sometimes they are their leaders. Few suc- 
cessful entrepreneurs are neither, and 
many, it seems, end up being both victims 
and perpetrators. 


Andrei Aizderdzis. 35. the legislator who 
was fatally shot outside his apartment, was 
a businessman, a would-be leader of the 
new entrepreneurial Russia in the lower 
house of Parliament. So is Sergei Skoroch- 
kin. 33, the legislator who says he shot a 
Georgian gangster in self-defense recently 
in his hometown. Zaraisk. about 160 kilo- 
meters (100 miles) southeast of Moscow. 

“One deputy has already been killed and 
buried.” Mr. Skorochkin said in an inter- 
view, “and if I hadn't killed the guy. people 
would be going to my funeral.’ 

The circumstances surrounding the gun 
battle are murky. 

Mr. Skorochkin's company. Raduga 
LuL operates food stores and an alcohol 
factory. He handed over the business to his 
sister after being elected to Parliament as a 


member of the Union of December 12. a 
pro-business, reform-oriented party. He 
said he was yet another example of how 
honest businessmen-poliiicians were 
hounded by racketeers and corrupt prose- 
cutors and policemen. 

But at least one law enforcement official 
in Moscow said he suspected that Mr. 
Skorochkin might have a more complex 
relationship with his attackers. 

The shooting follows the deaths of scores 
of businessmen, bankers, and gangsters. 


and largely »n reported cases of kidnap- 
pings, death threats, and extortions. But it 
was only the third lime a member of Parlia- 
ment has been directly involved. A month 
ago, criminals threw a gasoline bomb into 
the apartment of a legislator who is also a 
director of a construction company. 



The Associated Press 

MOSCOW The Supreme Coun on Tuesday reopened and 

imSidy closed the trial of the alleged leaders of the .1991 Tailed 

Soviet coup, an official said. r,,, .- , 

The move absolves a dozen of the most pow^ii men .m; Uw 
former Soviet Union of charges rdatmgto their role m staging a 
coup against Mikhail S. Gorbachev m ,1991. - 

The trial which started in April 1993, was first stoppedm March 
of this year after an amnesty was granted by Parliament toibe 
defendants along with the leaders of a hard-liners’- revolt against 
President Boris N. Yeltsin last fall. 

Deputy Prosecutor Eduard Denisov appealed that deoaon, say- 
ing an unfinished trial cannot be stopped under Russian law. The 
case then went before Judge Viktor Yasbn, who opened a new trial 
and closed it immediately under the Parliament-granted amnesty.

to its rightful owner. In a private settlement that

bought the land back from the white farmers 'and 
returned it to the Mfengu.

The new government line-up 
tooigh, sremed certain to raise 
doebts among Italy’s European ai- 
lie, and among Italians them- 
seVw, about the precise nature of a 
tneeyzny coalition made up of 
Mr. Balusconi’s own free-markei 
/orza Italia party, the neofasdst 
Nauonal Alliance of Gianfranco 
Fini and the separatist-minded 
Northern. League, led by Umberto 
Bossl 

The new administration is to be 
sworn in Wednesday and must se- 
cure a confidence vote in Parlia- 
ment, where the ruling alliance 
controls the lower house but not 
the Senate, before taking office. 

Of 25 government portfolios an- 
nounced Tuesday night five went 
to the neofasdsts — agriculture, 
transport, posts, the environment 
and cultural affairs. Additionally, 
the new neofasdst posts minister, 
Giuseppe Tatarella, look over one 
of the two deputy premiers hips 
along with the Northern League's 
Roberto Maroni, who was also 
named interior minister. 

The line-up means ihar Europe- 
an Union ministerial committees 
will cow include representatives* 
from the Italian neofasdsts in such 
contentious areas as agriculture 
and the environment 
However, Mr. Berlusconi seems 
to have been at pains to ensure that 
none erf the neofasdst ministers 
were people known to have bad 
direct links with Fascism in the 
Mussolini era. - 
The powerful Interim- Ministry 
had been at the core of a rancorous 
dispute between Mr. Berlusconi 
and Mr. Bossi.

cause of its wide powers. 

The Northern League, by con- 
trast, had demanded the portfolio 
as a counterweight to Mr. Berlus- 
coni’s power. “This should be 
something for aB to rqoice about," 
said Mi. Maroni, the new interior 
minister . 

Such was the concern about the 
new government’s composition 
that President Scalfaro took the un- 
usual step on Tuesday of releasing 
an exchange of letters between him 
and Mr. Berlusconi, in which he 
demanded that aD ministers in the 
new government support the con- 
stitutional principle of a “one and 
indivisible” nation.

At Inauguration, the Guest Who Stole the Show 


By Paul Taylor 

Washington Pass Sem« 

PRETORIA — Such a gathering of kings 
and queens, princes and potentates, presi- 
dents and prime ministers, they say the world 
hasn’t seen since the funeral of John F. Ken- 
nedy. 

- They came from 150 countries, and there 
nibbing elbows at the gala A-list posi- 
inaugoral luncheon were Prmces Pbifip (Brit- 
ain), Fdipe (Spain), WiUem (Netherlands) 
and Henri (Luxembourg). 

From other royal houses came Prince 
Ra’ad Bin Zrid of Jordan, King Letsie HI of 
Lesotho, King Mswati III of Swaziland. 

From Asia came Pakistan’s Benazir 
Bhutto, and from the United States, a table 
with AJ and Tipper Gore, Hillary Rodham 
Clinton, Jesse L Jackson, Ronald H. Brown 
and Mike Espy drew its share of gawkers. 

But no viaring dignitary came remotely 
dose to setting off the buzz that buzzed all 
day Tuesday around a tired-looting military 
ruler of a small island nation in dire economic 
straits. 

- Fidel Castro had a very good day. 

When he took Iris seat at the inaugural 

ceremony at the Union Buildings, decked out 
m his familiar wiry while beard and plain 


brown uniform, the multitude spontaneously 
started to chant his name. 

When he arrived at the luncheon here at 
the Presidency (Mandela’s new official resi- 
dence). the autograph and photograph seek- 
ers among the other 1.200 invited guests kept 
him so busy that for two and a half hours he 
never had a chance to touch his food. 

His secret? Perhaps its the romance of 
faded revolution. 

“He has been so uncompromising, so unre- 
lenting. so pure," marveled Mac Maharaj, a 
former Communist who will serve as the 
minister of transportation in President Nd- 
son Mandela's new cabinet. 

Perhaps its that activists here still remem- 
ber how Mr. Castro's Cuba sent 50.000 sol- 
diers to help the Angolan government repd a 
South African and UJS.-backed anti-com- 
munist revolution in the 1980s. 

“He was an incredibly loyal friend when 
the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa 
needed his help in Angola.” said the Allan 
Boesak, a veteran human -rights leader. “And 
now that things haven’t worked out so well in 
Iris country, I think there is a kind of reaching 
out" 

Mr. Castro, though, bad a different expla- 


nation. Asked why he kept getting mobbed 
while the heads of bigger, stronger and more 
prosperous countries were eating their roast 
beef in relative obscurity, he said, with a 
twinkle: “I owe it all to the Americans. With- 
out them, I*d have none of this.*' 

Among his well-wishers was Mr. Mandela. 
South Africa’s new president gave Mr. Castro 
a big two-cbeek embrace, then introduced 
him to South Africa's new second deputy 
president. Frederik W. de Klerk. Those two 
shook hands warmly, then Mr. de Klerk 
banded Mr. Castro over to the head of South 
Africa Defense Forces. Georg Meiring. As 
the two men Ln uniform clasped hands, Mr. 
Castro complimented Mr. Meiring’s air force 
on a well-executed flyover at the end of Mr. 
Mandela's swearing-in ceremony. 

One member of the U.S. delegation — he 
shall remain nameless — had a chance en- 
counter with Mr. Castro as foreign dignitaries 
milled about at the Presidency during a pre- 
inaugural break/asL 

The two shook hands. “I have been watch- 
ing you on CNN, and I think you are a brave 
man,” Mr. Castro told his new acquaintance. 

“Why?" the official replied. 

“Because you just shook hands with me.”

PARIS — A distress cable from a senior Palestinian difficulties. 


In addition to the severe lack of funds in Lhe PJtfts to . 
treasury, the organization is dogged by many ortl rend _ 


gpe. A. 


official, Nabii Shaath, landed on the desk of the 
Palestine Liberation Organization’s chairman sum- 
ming up the degree of trouble faced by the PLO as it 
attempts to implement its first peace agreement with 
Israel. 

“I have just sent $60,000, all secured through per- 
sonal guarantees and loans, to finance the entry of 
some of our troops into Gaza." said the cable, sent to 
Yasser Arafat on Sunday night. “1 cannot do more. 
Please send money, othnwise the situation will be- 
come very difficult.” 

“I cannot perform miracles,” Mr. Shaath went on to 
tell the PLO chairman, detailing the many other diffi- 
culties facing the application erf Palestinian self-rule in 
areas occupied by Israel since 1967. 

“1 cannot be responsible for any further delays if the 
money does not arrive. May God be my witness, for I 
have delivered the message ” 

About 9.000 Palestinian policemen are supposed to 
take over from the Israeli Army in Gaza and Jericho. 

Outside of the 150 or so policemen who entered 
Gaza on Tuesday, the balance of these forces are still 
stranded by lack of transportation, training, aims and 
other means of logistical and material support. 

Nearly 7.000 of these policemen have been recruited

MANDELA: 

The Inauguration 

Con tinned from Page 1 

den for two decades, first ai the 
Robbeo Island Prison and later at 
Victor Verster Prison. 

It also was a day for conciliatory 
gestures. Joe Modise. a former 
guerrilla leader and now Mr. Man- 
dela's defense minister-designate, 
noticed a delegation led by Chief 
Mangosuthu BuLhelezi. of the rival 
Inkatha Freedom Party, and the 
Zulu king. Goodwill Zwelithini, 
languishing fo the B-lisi seats and 
moved them to the from row. 

Someone also rescued Winnie 
Mandela, the estranged wife of Lhe 
new president, and led her from her 
chair behind a low sandstone wall 
to the covered stage where family 
and invited guests were seated. 

On Tuesday night, the new presi- 
dent dropped fo at the packed soc- 
cer stadium where the South Afri- 
can national team defeated Zambia 
fo an inaugural special. 

He frowned when lhe 60.000 
spectators failed to raise their 
voices in the two anthems of the 
new South Africa: the old Afri- 
kaans poem. “The Call of South 
Africa,” and the liberation anthem, 
“God Bless Africa.” 

"You have to leam the words to 
both anthems.” he scolded the 
crowd. “If you don't know Afri- 
kaans, you must leam it. If you 
don't know Zulu or Xhosa, you 
must leam those.” 

One fan. a resident of the PM a 
Park squatter camp. said. “It's nice 
that he came, but 1 think this is the 
last time we’ll come together like 
this." 

Wrapped in a huge A NC flag but 
already feeling the seep of disillu- 
sionment, she wondered: “What 


would periodically request our 
publications and we would send 
them over.” 

Other supporters contend that 
Mr. Schevitz has fallen victim to 
excessive German zeal fo rooting 
out individuals who showed sym- 
pathy for the Communist regime 
before the Berlin Wall tumbled fo 
1989. Scores of West Germans, in- 
cluding high-ranking politicians 
and diplomats, have been arrested 
on espionage charges fo recent 
years as investigators unravel the 
Siasi's once-ex tensive network of 
contacts and agents. 

“This seems to me to be some- 
thing of a setup, a witch hunt,” said 
David Colfax, a former colleague 
of Mr. Schevilz’s at the University 
of California at Berkeley and at 
Washington University in St. Lou- 
is. “I just see it as a long-term 
disaster for the guv, no matter how 
it coroes out." 

According 10 a spokesman for 
the U.S. Embassy fo Bonn, the Ger- 
man Foreign Ministry has reported 
that Mr. Schevitz requested that he

For seven arduous years American negotia- 
■s worked to set up a new World Trade 
ganization with power actually to enforce 
; rules on international trade. Legislation to 
ng the United States into it will come 
fore Congress this year. But since no good 
Mi goes unpunished, least of all in Washing- 
i, it is now being vehemently attacked from 
t and right as a great and intolerable give- 
ay of American sovereignty, 
rhe WTO is one of the few subjects on 
ich Newt Gingrich and Ralph Nader are 
Mr. Gingrich, the Republican whip in 
: House, recently suggested that the WTO 
istitutes an attempt at world government 
“a political structure with 117 individual 
tallies in which Third World dictatorships 
I be a majority." Other opponents have 
led warnings that it will force the United 
tes to change its laws, 
rhere is a seed of truth in that. The WTO. 
i the larger world trade agreement of which 
> a part, would require the United States to 
mge, among other things, the law* that 
itect the textile industry from imports. You 
1 net be greatly surprised to hear that the 
riotic issue of national sovereignty is gei- 
» a lot of attention these days from protec- 
lists righting to preserve the regulations 
l restrict trade and competition, 
rhe WTO is being set up to meet a great 


need. The present trade roles can resolve dis- 
putes only by consensus, which means that 
anv party can block a settlement. The United 
States is the world's largest exporting nation, 
and this inability to get grievances resolved 
has been a cause of enormous losses and' 
frustration for American exporters over the 
years. The WTO is the remedy. 

What about Mr. Gingrich's fears of world 
government and redd ess majorities of undem- 
ocratic mini states trashing American laws? 
There has always been a thread of suspicion 
running here and there through American 
politics that membership in international or- 
ganizations will undermine American sover- 
eignty. In the early 1950s, Congress was con- 
vulsed with a huge debate over the United 
Nations and whether its voles would override 
American law. But it hasn't. Now, 40 years 
later, the debate seems to have reappeared 
along exactly the same lines as before. 

But the WTO cannot compel any member 
to accept any expansion of its powers. While 
it could theoretically expel a recalcitrant, as 
a practical matter no trade organization is 
going to expel the world’s richest national 
market. The political reality is that the WTO 
is a technical organization that is no match 
for even the smaller sovereign nations, let 
alone for the big ones.

Reform by Ex-Communists 


fung asians voted on Sunday to put former 
nmunists, now called Socialists, back into 
ver. As in Poland and Lithuania, market 
jrmers had promised economic miracles- 
t they could not possibly deliver, and vot- 
venled their frustration, bringing back 
ofessioaals” who “know how to make gov- 
ment work." The West need not despair at 
resurrection of Hungarian Communists, 
.nr pledge to keep Hungary headed toward 
nocracy and markets is credible. The for- 
r Communist government brought Hunga- 
nodesl market reforms in the 1970s. And 
Socialist leader, Gyula Horn, as foreign 
lister in the former Communist govern - 
at, smashed a gaping hole in the iron 
'tain when he opened Hungary's border in 
9 to refugees fleeing from East Germany, 
lie West can take heart from similar events 
3 oland. Voters turned out the pro-market 
eminent last year and voted in a coalition 
ormer Communists and agrarians. Yet the 
/ government has preserved market re- 
us. and Poland is growing faster than any 
er economy in Europe, 
mother encouraging sign from last week- 
’s voting in Hungary — the first of two 


rounds of parliamentary elections — was the 
terrible showing of the far-righi nationalists. 
They got less than 2 percent of the vote; the 
Socialists had more than 30 percent, a center- 
left coalition about 20 percent, and the ruling 
center-right coalition less than 12 percent. If 
these shares hold up in the second round, the 
former Communists will take control 

Voters’ anger at the ruling coalition is not 
hard to explain. Output — at least, as mea- 
sured by government statistics — has fallen by 
20 percent in the last four years, unemploy- 
ment is soaring toward a million, and infla- 
tion hovers above 20 percent annually. Hun- 
garians are scared. They turned to former 
Communists who. not implausibly, claimed 
that they could make reform work better. 

The West can influence whether the new 
government sticks with democracy and market 
reforms. The most important step' would be for 
the European Union and other industrialized 
countries to open their borders to exports from 
the former Co mmunis t countries. Former 
Communists might not be the ideal agents of 
market reforms in Eastern Europe: Bui they 
can. with help, get the job done.

The Task in Panama 


•ew votes anywhere will mean more for the 
ited Slates this year than Panama"? presi- 
itial election last Sunday. It is not that the 
tner, the U.S.-educated millionaire busi- 
sman Ernesto Perez Bailadares. is Wash- 
ton’s man; on ihe contrary, he heads Puna- 
’s leading nationalist party. It is that on his 
tch Panama must carry off final convey- 
e of the American-built Panama Canal to 
lama on Dec. 31, 1999. The smooth trans- 
of this vital giant facility will call for high, 
itical skills on each side. 

Treaties made by President Jimmy Carter 
1 the late General Omar Torrijos in 1979 
lied out the new terms of Panamanian 
’ereignry and operation for the waterway 
. i surrounding lands. Nothing has changed 
justify altering those treaties. But in both 
mines political snags lurk. In some Pana- 
nian quarters there is a disturbing reluc- 
ce to move on without American guidance 
j for instance, to lose ibe income from U.S. 

: itary bases, which ore to close. In some 
I lerican quarters there persists the attitude 
: “patriotic” over-possessiveness toward the 
jial that fired up the losing but bruising 
j .tie against treaty ratification in the Senate. 
) \ware that both the process and the result 


of voting in Panama can color the count- 
down to 2000. Mr. Carter himself led an 
election observer mission. Despite wide- 
spread fears of disruption, the process was 
peaceful and fair. The easy victory that Mr. 
Perez Bailadares scored and the comfortable 
governing coalition he is expected to assem- 
ble should strengthen him as an interlocutor 
with the United States. 

Mr. Perez Bailadares is of the populist party 
that Manuel Antonio Noriega turned into the 
political arm of the armed forces until an 
American invasion deposed the strongman 
five years ago. He has striven to identify 
himself with his party's more acceptable To- 
rrijos roots and to democratize the party from 
the inside. But he will have to keep working 
hard to still fears of the revival of the thuggery 
and corruption associated with Mr. Noriega. 

President George Bush invaded Panama in 
1989 in large measure to halt Mr. Noriega's 
patronage of the drug traffic. The chief effect 
of his ouster on the drug Lrade was to privatize 
it and to create another set of obstacles to law 
enforcement. On this and other pressing con- 
cerns. the United States badly needs Pana- 
ma’s vigorous cooperation.

China, we mean the officials in Beijing, there 
is little doubt of the men is. Whether out of 
clumsiness or cold calculation, their recent 
heavy-handedness — roundups of dissi- 
dents. new restrictions on religion, a cover- 
up of the Qiaod ao Lake murders — can in no 
way be reconciled with the demand for ■‘sig-

ff. however, China is defined as the Chi- 
nese people — the chief casualties of their 
government's violations — then the answer 
is clear. For them, the trade and investment 
that most-favored-nation trade sums offers 
represent opportunity: the chance to manage 
their own lives, feed their families — and 
perhaps, in the long run. the hope that 
their grandchildren might know a measure of 
stability and freedom.

Pacific Asia Rise Involves More Thau Economics 


S INGAPORE — For centuries. Pacific 
Asia's economic lifeline was exports to 
the industrialized West. Today the region is 
much more self-sufficient. Its interna! growth 
is being increasingly fueled by trade and invest- 
ment within and between regional economies. 
This is an irreversible shift with far-reaching 
implications beyond the realm of economics. 

Northeast Asia comprising Japan. Ko- 
rea, the northern Chinese provinces and pos- 
sibly even the Pacific coast of Russia — will 
establish itself as the industrial powerhouse of 
Pacific Asia. It has the potential to be an 
integrated economic region, with China's 
heavy industries and mineral resource indus- 
tries complementing Japan's high-tech manu- 
facturing. Consumption demand from this 
area will grow fasti stimulating growth else- 
where in Pacific Asia. 

Greater China, linking southern China. 
Taiwan and Hong Kong, will be the boom- 
town, frontier-style economy of the region. 
Using its entrepreneurial resources. Greater 
China wall excel in consumer goods manufac- 
turing and any enterprise of a speculative 
nature. It will rank number one in Pacific 
Asia in terms of economic growth rates. 

Southeast Asia will find itself pushed hard 
to attract foreign investment, because its 
economies are relatively small and compete 
with each other, makin g genuine integration 
problematic. Attempts by the Association of 
South East Asian Nationi to forge a free trade 
area axe still in the formative stage because 
areas of competition are greater than comple- 
mentarity between ASEAN economies. 

However, liberalization of Burma and 
Indochina, and their increasing integration 
with ASEAN's economies, will stimulate re- 
gional growth. While Southeast Asia is a se- 
ries of emerging markets rather than a single 
homogeneous entity, it is very dynamic, and 
domestic consumption is increasing rapidly. 

The rise of Pacific Asia will gradually shift 
the balance of both economic and political 
power away from ihe West. Economic 
groups, such as the Asia-Pacific Economic 
Cooperation forum, will uy to ameliorate 
some of the tensions and bring everyone 
under the same tern, but differences will 
emerge at the ethno-cultural level. 

When the rise of Pacific Asia was merely an 
interesting phenomenon. Western scholars 
wrote with detached interest about the role of 
Confucian values in development. Now that 
the rise of Pacific Asia has become less of a 


By Ho Kwon Ping 


Western detractors. Now. more Asian voices 
are increasingly assertive in pulling forth an 
Asian perspective, whether il be on human 
rights, law and order, crime and punishment 
work ethics, or other values of a civil society. 

There are certainly common Asian philo- 
sophical outlooks. To take a legal example: a 
recent survey noted how Asians are generally 
less inclined toward litigation than Western- 
ers. They prefer nonconfrontaiional means of 
conflict resolution, such as arbitration. This 
was as mie of the Japanese. Koreans and 
Chinese as of Indonesians or Thais. The study 
concluded that there was a historical or cul- 
tural basis for the Asian inclination to stress 
personal rather than contractual obligations. 

If there is a single fundamental difference 
between the Western and Asian worldviews, 
it is the dichotomy between individual free- 
dom and collective welfare. It is reflected in 
the definition and administration of justice. 
The Western cliche that it would be better for 
a guilty person to go free than to convict an 
innocent person is a testimony to the impor- 
tance of the individual. An Asian perspective 
mav well be that it is belLer for an innocent 
person to be convicted if the common welfare 
is protected, and better Tor a guilty person to 
be free if conviction would inflict further 
harm on the community. 

A more independent and assertive Pacific 
Asian assortment of views, if not a single 
perspective, is long overdue. However, if it 
does not also develop a self -critical perspec- 
tive on Asia's own problems, it will be tittle 
more than a voice of smugness. 

The rise of Pacific Asia has not occurred 
without considerable contradictions and so- 
cial tensions. In the euphoria over a Pacific 


Asian century, we may understate these prob- 
lems, or dismiss them because they are dis- 
torted or exaggerated in the West 

The recent protests in the Medan area of 
Indonesia over labor conditions turned into 
anti-Chinese riots. They were symptomatic of 
growing income inequalities in Pacific Asia as 

market forces accelerate economic growth. For 
every entrepreneur who strikes it rich in Jakar- 
ta, Bangkok or Shanghai, there are thousands 
who migrate from & countryside to urban 
ghettos and barely make a living. 

Economic reform in China, for example, 
has created a of millioaaires and also 
more than 2Q rnilhon jobless drifters camping 
out at railroad stations, looking for work. 

As parts of Pacific Asia leapfrog several 
stages or industrialization and catapult 
straight into high-tech industries, there is an 
underclass of the illiterate and unskilled 
whose livelihoods are barely improving. 
Western critiques of this problem have largely 
focused on the purported exploitation of 
these workers by Asian businesses, with the 
solution being trade barriers to Asian exports 
unless such problems are alleviated. 

Asian political and business leaders must 
collaborate to resolve or ameliorate these con- 
tradictions of growth, not because of pressure 
from protectionist trade unions in the West 
but because it is their duty to their people. 

Similarly, Pacific Asia's rapid growth has 
sometimes resulted in environmental degra- 
dation. But because the vociferous green 
movement in the West has often adopted 
simplistic solutions where any kind of devel- 
opment which involves some environmental 
sacrifice is anathema, Asian governments and 
their defenders often deny that the region has 
serious environmental problems. 

The reality is that policy decisions will 
often involve difficult choices. Building a dam

relocating some villages and endangering ihe 
habitat of some bins. Asian environmental 
groups have a greater dilemma' than their 
Western counterpartf bcctu^^ 
between poverty aDcviation and enviroszaens 
tal degradation is extremely difficult to make. 
The debate over these choices must be an 
Asian one, with Asian voices speaking. ... 

In seeking a Pacific Asian perspective^ it is . 
unlikely that a single yoke or model win 
emerge. For the region has its own rich politic 
cal and historical diversities. Howeyer, the 
nascent Asian voices that are inomhgfy

novelty and perhaps more of z threat, a less 


friendly tone has crept into some Western 
studies of Pacific Asian cultural, social and 
political behavior. Samuel Huntington's con- 
troversial book “The Clash of Civilizations” 


is a reflection of bow a Western psyche can 
've the impending Pacific Asian chal- 


lenge as essentially a clash between civiliza- 
tions — with Western values implicitly consti- 
tuting the civilized norms of behavior. 

The linking erf Western standards of human 
rights with trade access to Western markets, 
or Western standards of workers* rights with 
trade, has been seen by many thoughtful 
Asians as a thinly disguised attempt to impede 
the rise of Pacific .Asian economic power. 

Asian governments have generally been, a; 
besti defensive about their low rankings on 
the scorecard of Western social, cultural or 
political norms of behavior. At worst, they 
resorted to crude counterattacks against their 


C ANBERRA — China is big and getting 
economically stronger. U is a huge na- 
tion secure from external threats. It will loom 
large in the Western Pacific, raising concerns 
in the region and elsewhere that it might 
become an expansionist power. 

China is seeking to develop a mobile rapid 
reaction force to protect its maritime interests 
and offshore territorial claims in the South 
China Sea and elsewhere. This has been inter- 
preted as evidence of a quest for dominance. 

To allay such concerns. China should be 
encouraged to publish more of its defense 
policy and plans. The country's defense bud- 
get increased by as much as 60 percent in the 
last Tour years, after a period of relative de- 
cline. However, the growth rate in real terms 
was around 3 percent annually, which is mea- 
ger given the state of the weapons and equip- 
ment in the Chinese armed forces. Moreover, 
increased salaries and allowances accounted 
for a large slab of this increase. 

Still, the rate of growth in real terms has 
been matched by few other Asia-Pacific coun- 
tries. with the exception of Taiwan. The U.S. 
Central Intelligence Agency uses figures 
which suggest that China's defense budget is 
more than twice its publicly stated size. The 
CIA puts actual spending at between SI6 
billion and SI7 billion. Using the World 


By Gary Klintworth 


Bank’s purchasing power parity method of 
calculation, the figure comes out at around 
S2I billion, which is still only about half the 
amount spent by Japan and a fraction of the 
spending of the major nuclear powers. 

Much of the Chinese armed forces’ equip- 
ment dates from the 1950s and 1960s. To 
replace it with modem weapons will require a 
substantial increase in defense spending every 
year for at least the next decade 

China's military capabilities are fairly 
modest. It has a fraction of the number of 
intercontimental ballistic missiles possessed 
by the United States and Russia. The number 
or diesel-powered Chinese submarines 
dropped by more than half ta around 37 in 
1992, from more than 100 in 1984. The num- 
ber of major warships in the Chinese navy has 
increased only marginally in recent years to 
55 today, from 52 in 1988. 

China’s air force may be the third largest in 
the world, but it is essentially a defensive 


force equipped with obsolete planes, despite 
irchases of i 


demonstrated during the Gulf War. Its armed ' 
forces are defensively oriented and have a. 
limited capacity for projecting military power 
far beyond Chinese shores. 

China's modernization program win take 
many decades. If it is to succeed, Beijing will 
continue to need peaceful borders acid good 
relations with the United States, Japan and 
other Asian nations. It will also need good 
standing in the World Bank, the Asian Devel- 
opment Bank, the United Nations, the World 
Trade Organization and the Asia-Pacific Eco- 
nomic Cooperation forum. An aggressive pol- 
icy in the South China Sea would be contrary 
to Beijing's self-interest. 

In the longer term, China may become a 
great military power. A stronger China can be 
a stabilizing factor if it becomes enmeshed in 
the mainsteam of regional affairs, balances 
Japan and a united Korea, and contributes to 
regional economic prosperity. In the past, it 
was a weak, disunited China that invited great 
power intervention and precipitated civil 
wars and uncontrollable migration of impov- 
erished Chinese to other countries.

For the European Union to Work, All Members Can’t Be Equal 


B 


RUSSELS — When the original 


ngir 

six founding states of the Euro- 
pean Union signed the Treaty or 
Rome in 1957. they made a bargain 
that intrigued the rest of ihe world. 
They agreed that the size of a country 
would be irrelevant to its clout. 

It was an idealistic, even quixotic, 
pledge that typified postwar Europe's 
determination to build a new frame- 
work of cooperation and trust LhaL 
would make armed conflict unthink- 
able ever. France. West Germany 
and Italy accepted that joint policies 
.within the new Community would 
have to be unanimously accepted, 
and that Belgium. Lhe Netherlands 
and even tiny Luxembourg would 
have equal rights of veto. 

.Almost 40 years later, the time has 
come for that principle of equality 
between slates to be re-examined, 
and then scrapped. The Six have be- 
come the Twelve and are soon to 
become the Sixteen, when Austria.

that the member governments must 
in Future submit themselves to major- 


populations of member states. To 
continue to do so would be both 
undemocratic and unrealistic. 

Over the years, a system of weight- 
ed voting has emerged as the only 
way to push through the growing vol- 
ume of collective regulation and leg- 
islation. Whether this system should 
be tinkered with or radically over- 
hauled is now the bunting question 
facing Europe, and it is scheduled to 
be resolved by 1 996, at latest, in order 
to prepare the Union for a further 
enlargement in the late 1990s that 
brings in Poland, Hungary, the Czech 
Republic and Slovakia. 

The majority voting system has 
never been unreservedly’ accepted 
throughout Europe. Charles de Gaulle 
had no problems with Lhe original veto 
system, but in the mid-1960s, when 
majority voting was first mooted, he 
mounted a one-man boycott of the 
European Community, and France’s

EU policy-! 


empty chair in the Council of Minis- 
ters was not occupied until her part- 
ners agreed that “vital national inter- 
est'' would permit member stales to 
veto unacceptable measures. 

That effectively knocked majority 
voting on the head for some 20 years, 
until the drive to create Lhe European 
single market produced such a vol- 
ume of often controversial new regu- 
lations that the only workable solu- 
tion was majority voting. 

The majority voting introduced 
under the European Single Act in the 
late 1 980s is probably no more than a 
modest forerunner of what is yet to 
come. So far, EU member slates have 
allowed themselves to be voted down 
on the more technical issues, with 
politically explosive matters like eco- 
nomic and foreign policy still decided 
by unanimity. But with a member- 
ship that could more than double in 
the next 10 years or so, (he signs are 


Haiti Is Holding Up a Mirror of Shame 


N EW YORK — Haiti holds up a 
mirror to Americans, and tens 
of millions should look away in 
shame. They live in freedom and 
safely because their parents or 
grandparents had the strength to lice 
pogroms or travel thousands of hard 
miles in search of work and bread. 

But for years now, when Haitians 
have come seeking refuge, their 
need deep, their oppression relent- 
less and their danger acute, they 
have been turned away. Children 
and grandchildren of earlier immi- 
grants say nothing mumble excuses 
or icily approve. 

After his election. President Bill 
Clinton went back on his word to 
allow Haitians a decent chance at 
entry into the promised land, in- 
stead of capturing them at sea and 
sending them back, as did President 
George Bush. Now he has found 
the courage to recognize his error, 
and try to rectify it. 

For giving that chance at last to 

black refugees he deserves respect, 
not the warnings of approaching 
calamity that he is getting 
Black. White .Americans at least 
should acknowledge what they see 
in the Haitian mirror. The Haitians 
have been turned back because of 
the color of their skin. 

It is cowardly to pretend other- 
wise. Haitian refugees are poor, 
most are unschooled and some arc 
ill. So were many of the European 
refugees without whom this country 
would now be less educated, less 
wealthy and less healthy than it is. 

Sons and daughters of European 
immigrants arc among those who 
warn against Haitians. They turn 
out studies that are supposed to 


By A. M. Rosenthal 


show that immigrants are a hideous 
economic threat. In America, you 
can pick your study — and on immi- 
gration I pick those like the one from 
the Alexis de Tocqueville Institution 
in Washington. Ten states with the 
lowest concentrations of immigrants 
in 198() had an unemployment rate 
one-third higher than the staLes with 
relatively high immigration. 

“Hordes” — the word has not 
been used much about immigrants 
since the early 20th centuiy. when it 
was a favorite of anti-Semites and 
Catholic-haters. Now it just hangs 
there in the talk and writing of anti- 
immigration groups — Haitians and 
Chinese moving toward America, 
over the horizon, millions and mil- 
lions of foreigner*, in mass, not a one 
of them what you could call white. 

But if we Americans have any 
sense we will let the nation-building 
record of .American immigration 
guide us. if we decide some day that 
the United Slates just cannot' han- 
dle any new brains or more mus- 
cles. we can abandon American 
self-interest in immigration then, 
but for heaven’s sake not now. 

If ever there was a countiy whose 
people deserve warmth when they 
feck U.S. refuge it is Haiti. It is part 
of the Americas, a neighbor. The 
thug ‘■police" and “army" officers 
who rule with machete and gun arc 
direct descendants of the Duvalicr 
dictatorships so long supported and 
armed by the United States. And 
they overturned a president who 
may not be to American tastes but 
who was democratically elected. 


Somehow, Washington has man- 
aged to think of only one plan to 
help Haitians: strangle them ever 
tighter in sanctions. Sanctions 
against enemy governments like 
Iraq’s, or as pressure for a specific 
political purpose against a South 
Africa or North Korea — that is 
one thing. But sanctions that con 
starve out a friendly neighboring 
people — how long can the Hai- 
tians stand that? How long can we? 

The Haitian mirror shows more 
than an American double standard 
against black refugees. Politicians 
and commentators who scream for 
heavy bombing of Serbia, with all 
its risks of a wider European war. 
seem petrified at the thought of 
any military action against a mob 
of Haitian killers who have only 
fought unarmed civilians. 

1 cannot understand why the Lat- 
in American republics are not vol- 
unteering to share military action 
against the Haitian thugs. But then 
I could never understand why West- 
ern Europe could not handle Bosni- 
an intervention, if it was so hot for it. 
without calling for America. 

U.S. intervention in Bosnia could 
prolong and widen war. But it is 
hard to believe that U.S. armed 
forces could not handle the Haitian 
cops in a few days. 

So. a final thought for mirror- 


gazing. If Canadians were taken 
over by marauding gangsters, sure- 


ly wc in the United States would 
offer them something better than 
the simple two-part plan that so 
many Americans think is entirely 
good enough for Haitians: they just 
stay home, and we just starve them.

policy-making. 

Poland and Hungary have now 
made formal applications for EU 
membership, and the Czech Republic 
and Slovakia wOl not be far behind. 
These four — nowadays known as 
the VLsegrad stales, because they 
signed a cooperation pact in that 
Hungarian town — may perhaps be 
in the Union in five years. The Baltic 
states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithua- 
nia are also anxious to join, as are 
Romania, Bulgaria and the compare-, 
lively prosperous state of Slovenia in 
the north of ex- Yugoslavia. 

There is strong pressure on the 
Union to underwrite these ex-com- 
munist countries’ stability and securi- 
ty by admitting them to membership. 
In Bonn, Lhe new slogan is that the 
Union should be a “zone of peace” 
from the Atlantic to the River Bug in 
western Ukraine. Tt would then be 
doubly difficult to refuse entry to 
longtime suitors Malta and Cyprus, 
and the security argument might also 
extend to admitting Turkey. Let Alba- 
nia in and EU membership rises to 30. 

It seems unlikely that in this great- 
ly expanded European Union all 
members can be equaL This U a nettle 


flanked by Spain and Italy. Whatever 
the cosmetic gloss put on a future 
‘political union," the reality is that 
the voters and political representa- 
tives of these states will insist on 
retaining control of key policy areas.

smaller powers — the Benelux and 
Scandinavian stales, Ireland, Austria,

The idealism that first gave the 


original Six equal voices, and later

weighted qualified majority voting to 
safeguard the smaller countries, now 
has to be tempered with realism. If 
the Union is to have real power and 
make decisions on issues of real im- 
portance, a three-tier hierarchy has to 
be envisaged. It would be largely, but 
not wholly, based on population size. 

At the top will be the major powers 
— Germany. France and Britain, 


..rank will be the formerly 

Communist stales and other latecom- 
ers. Their membership in the Union 
will reflect a political imperative, 
with tittle or no economic rationale. 
The weigh ting of these countries’ 
clout in the Council of Ministers will 
have to reflect their status as infant 
democracies and long-term recipients 
of economic assistance. 

By some calculations, admission of 
ihe Visegrad Four will cost an extra 
S80 billion or so yearly and mean a 
60 percent rise in member slates’ 
contributions to the Eli budget. The 
chances are that these newcomers will 
not be granted full access to, say, the 
Common Agricultural Policy, and 
will not exercise full voting rights. 

The task of fashioning a new politi- 
cal system for Europe that balances 
democratic accountability with effi- 
ciency. and fairness with realpolitik, 
is truly daunting. The important thine 
is that the options should be discussed 
by Europeans as widely and freely as 
possible in advance of the 1996 Inter- 
governmental Conference. 

Left to political power brokers 
and cautious officials, the future po- 
litical framework risks emerging as 
an unsatisfactory mishmash. Radi- 
cal solutions are needed, and that 
requires widespread discuss ion and 
popular support.

against the senuy, who thereupon-

try made the regulation three calls for 
her to stop, but without avail, and he 
then took deliberate aim and shot her 
dead. Even the military authorities

Last year there were more than 
a thousand of us, mostly profes- 
sionals and executives in their 30s 
and 40s but with a sprinkling of 
older and younger folk. All-white 
attire, informal but not overly ca- 
sual. was de rigueur; shorts and T- 
shins were banned. The men came 
in various combinations of tennis 
sweaters and slacks, white dinner 
jackets, white duck trousers. Our 
host, an architect with a whimsi- 
cal bent. wore white bib overalls, 
white shin and tie, and a sultan’s 
white, bejeweled turban. The 
women were in white, too, most 
with liny hats or garlands of flow-

Each year, couples assemble at 
various points throughout Paris.

What journalists are supposed to 
do about all this, except give us the 
facts, is a mystery to me. Joann 
Byrd, ombudsman of The Wash-

vocative questions: “What would

Others among us would de-em- 
phasize crime reporting because it 
“glamorizes" c riminals and is often 
“sensationalized" to gain audi- 
ences and sell newspapers. 

But this is really not a news busi-

shrugs or runs for help, to no avail. 
The presence of a thousand well- 
behaved people has suddenly be-

regulations are being flouted, no 
harm is being done. 

So that the word wfl] not get out 
beforehand, the destination is not 
announced until all are aboard 
their respective buses and under

orders, so to speak, until the direc-

Our director left the bus and 
returned a few minutes later with a 
shrug. “He didn't crack under tor- 
ture," somebody said. Our director 
said, “This might take a while." so 
we aD got out to stretch our legs. 

More police cars arrived, then a 
police van, which gave us pause. 
But after much back-and-forth by 
walkie-talkie, the police satisfied 
themselves that our expedition had 
no political overtones. Then, as if 
to make up for the delay, they gave 
us a motorcycle escort across the 
middle of Paris from Les Lnvalides 
to the Louvre, stopping the late

f ?p 


us Affair: 
eratic Drama 


By David Stevens 

jn > . Irarmananal Herald Tribune 
OV 


ERL IN — A century af- 
,a . j 3 ter the first conviction of 
Captain Alfred Dreyfus 
“J.L Jr as a spy and, perhaps not 
“j coincidence, on the 49th anni- 
versary of V-E Day, the Deutsche 
^ - 3er brought its considerable rnu- 
theatrical artillery to bear on 
— c e world premiere of “Dreyfus: 
_Jie Affair.” 

. „The libretto and the idea for the 
era are by George R- Whyte, a 
born in Budapest and brought 
| a child, when his family emigrai- 
f c . to England in the late 1930s. He 
^ijimersed himself in the Dreyfus 
2jhierial for several years, and the 
(era’s appearance now as an out* 
r 5* v against racism still seems timely. 
ViJost Meier, the 55-year-old 
-^viss composer, who has four olh- 
9* operas in his catalogue, appears 
n r have absorbed most of this cen- 
*Siy's concepts of musical drama- 
lirgy and to be ready to me them 
Pit a theatrically effective wav — 
“Hid effective the score decidedly is. 
U- The libretto is laid out in two acts 

* id 14 scenes that ciy out to be 
11 dyed without interruptions, as 

* tey were here in little more than 90 
,( ,[ioutes. The action is noL chrono- 

*!gjca] or realistic, but makes liberal 
[t se of flashback and the simuliar 
^fcous playing of separate but over- 
dipping scenes. It also is limited to 
l ie five-year period between the first 
" nd second convictions, and is cor- 
L c ispondiiigly pessimistic — Drey- 
Pis's total exoneration is still in the 
iture at the final curtain, 
si For this Meier has written music 
biat depends largely on a musical 
Collage technique and what he calls 
^Stationary dramaturgy.” It also 
ivolves musical dtations — a 
Juloulin Rouge cancan and a “Mar- 
"laHaise” that absorb Jew- baiting 
hart elements, a Chopin waltz that 
■Embodies the bourgeois pressure 
'bward social assimilation, and the 
"Ringing of cantors to evoke the 
reouthful family memories, 
c The opera begins with a brief 
vlomestic scene around the dinner 
lable, brutally interrupted when a 
eiowling crowd bursts through the 
v valls and the scene abruptly be- 
iromes the ceremony of Dreyfus’s 
lffidal degradation After a brief 
cene in the prison, where Alfred 
ind his wife, Lucie, take agonized 
cave of each other, the action 
noves into nightmare-land. 


spoken lines, and throughout the 
chorus is used as an almost omni- 
present musical and dramatic pres- 
ence. The score inevitably evokes 
landmarks of 20th-cennny opera. 
The extinction of time relationships 
recalls Zunmennann’s “Die Solda- 
len." the expressionist lyricism of 
Berg’s “Lulu” is evoked in Lucie’s 
vain appeal to the Pope and in other 
scenes, and “Wozzeck” comes to 
mind in the sinister use of cabaret 
music and in the final scene, and 
when Dreyfus’s son (or is it Dreyfus 
himself as a child?) says, “Papa, 
when I grow up I want to be a 
soldier,” it has the same chilling ef- 
fect as Wozzeck's orphaned child 
hop-hopping on his bobby horse. 

Torsten Fischer staged the work 
and Andreas Reinhardt designed it 
for maximum flexibility and sugges- 
ts veriest The playing surface was a 
sloping metal grill, with Dreyfus's 
Devil's Island hole in the fore- 
ground. It was surrounded by a 
monochrome cyclorama — some- 
times yellow, the Nazi color of the 
Star of David, sometimes white — 
and walls of paper through which 
the crowd was perpetually bursting. 

As Dreyfus, the Canadian tenor 
Paul Frey displayed dramatic com- 
mitment and vocal clarity. The uni- 
formly strong cast included Aimee 
Wmis as Lucie, Artur Korn as 
Zola, Barry McDaniel as Picquan. 
Peter Gougaioff as Hemy, Peter 
Frinlmann as Esterhazy (the real 
culprit) and Hermine May as the 
cabaret Marianne who is also Es- 
terhazy’s mistress. 

Christopher Keene, director and 
chief conductor of the New York 
City Opera, and an experienced 
hand with new scores, drew fine 
playing from the house’s respon- 
sive orchestra. 


D 


REYFUS on Devil’s 
Island is constantly 
present half buried in a 
Star of David-shaped 
j^ole, as the major historical events 
fbf his framing and trials, his fever- 
•sh memories of his earlier life and 
_ the attempts of his brother, wife 
hnd Emile Zola to free him take 
’place in a kind of dramatic and 
.musical counterpoint. 

‘ The composer makes effective use 
Of recitative, expressive lyricism and 


If “Dreyfus" in its way is an 
evocation of ibe mentality behind 
the Holocaust, another view of the 
same era was offered in the Berlin 
Kammeroper's superb production 
of Karl Amadeus Hartmann's 
“Simplicius SimpUdssimus” at the 
Hebbd Theater. 

Hartmann is a rare example of 
an artist in internal exQe during the 
Nazi era. Not Jewish, but a com- 
poser or “degenerate” music, not 
yet well known enough to attract 
attention, be composed but did not 
seek performance, except occasion- 
ally outside Germany. 

This opera is a free adaptation of 
Grimmeishausen’s picaresque tale 
of a kind of holy fool caught up in 
the horrors of the Thirty Years 
War. Hartmann's music, which he 
revised in the 1950s. is highly eclec- 
tic, ranging from the Kurt Wefll-ish 
world of Berlin cabaret to evoca- 
tions of Lutherian chorale. It is not 
hard to see it as it was surely in- 
tended, a gloss on the Nazi era. 

Henry Akina’s fast-moving stag- 
ing was impressive, and Brynmor 
Llewelyn Jones's musical leadership 
precise and firmly controlled.

ANNES. France — More than any 
other festival Cannes banks on 
glamour — famous faces, yacht par- 
ties and gala nights. Every year, there 
is a tense moment between Hollywood and the 
festival, old if uneasy bedfellows with a conten- 
tious history, and dire predictions are made: 
The majors are pulling out; the stars, and possi- 
bly the sun. may snub Cannes. Director Gilles 
Jacob responds with a strategic tack, program- 
ming the event to show goodwill to all, especial- 
ly to the United States. 

This year's competition, winch opais Thurs- 
day and runs through May 23. with a jury 
presided over by Clint Eastwood, could be called 
a tribute to the independents, a term that refers 
to the filmmakers of low-budget films and their 
production or distribution companies, who have 
been gaining an edge on the market. Filmmakers 
like Quentin Tarantino (“Pulp Fiction"), Hal 
Hartley (“Amateur”) and John Waters (“Serial 
MonO are in the big league. Many of the movies 
that used to come to the fesuval to attract 
distribution have already been acquired by com- 
panies like Miramax, Polygram and the Samuel 
Gddwyn Company. 

The festival opens with Joel Coen’s “Hud- 
sucker Proxy.” a salute to the Coen brothers' 
brash young talent, produced by Joel Silver and 
Working Title, a branch of Polygram. That's 
the American opening. 

Friday is the big night for France, with Pa- 
trice Chereau’s “La Reine Margot.” starring 
Isabelle Adjaoi, a superproduction from 
Claude Bern's studios. And Saturday, the veter- 
an independent Alan Rudolph presents “Mis. 
Parker and the Vicious Circle,” starring Jenni- 
fer Jason Leigh and produced by Robert Alt- 
man with funding by Miramax and Fine Line. 

The people who hedge bets on Golden Palm 
awards are already talking about a contest 
between Queen Margot and Dorothy Parker — 
Adjani and Leigh, in films that are on opposite 
extremes of this year’s competition, genres that 
range from the sweeping historic epic to a focus 
on private lives. 




major 


tailor-made for Adjani, lavishly costumed and 
coveted by Daniel AutetuL as her royal hus- 
band, Jean-Hugues An glade, as her royal and 
incestuous brother, and Vincent Perez, as her 
Protestant lover. Gtireau. a master of complex 
crowd scenes cm stage, had to deal with hun- 
dreds of extras for Margot’s marriage in Notre 
Dame cathedral and die Saint Bartholomew’s 
Day massacre. He and the screenwriter, Dan- 
tele Thompson, seem to have designed the story 
to show that they are not just talking about 
historic quarrels between French Catholics and 
Protestants, but religious conflicts and ethnic 
purification today, in Bosnia or in Rwanda. 

Minorities' problems, regal solutions are 
constants in many of the movies. Zhang Yi- 
mou's “Huozhe" (To Live) starring Gong Li — 
another Golden Palm contender — is a saga of 
a modern Chinese family; A landlord gambler 
and Iris wife lose everything to end up winners 
— for a short while — under Mao's regime. 
Ever since “Raise the Red Lantern,” Yimou 
and Gong Li are international names, and this 
story of life's cruel lottery under dictatorship 
has been sold worldwide, to the ire of Beijing. 

Asian films are in every section of the festi- 
val. Edward Yang's “Du Li Shi Dai" (A Confu- 
rian Confusion), two days in the lives of Tai- 
wanese kids, in competition: Kayo Hatta’s 
“Picture Bride," the story of a Japanese mail- 
order bride who comes to Hawaii to find not 
quite the husband she pictured, in the noncom- 
petitive Un Certain Regard section. “Neak S re” 
(People of the Rice Paddies) by Cambodian 
Rithy Panh is a first film about a family of nce- 
growers and their seven daughters. 

After adventures and misadventures in Hol- 
lywood and Moscow. Andrei Konchalovsky is 
in Cannes with “Riaba ma Poule," shot in 
eastern Russia, the scene of his 1967 “Assia's 
Happiness,” a film banned by authorities and 
only released in 1988. 

This is not the first time the brothers Mikhal- 
kov-Konchalovsky are both in competition: 


□ye Solntsem” (Autant nous biuiaztleSdal)^- 
bout a family under Stalin, in partnership, with 
a Russian technical crew. 

Marin Kararitz, producer of Krzysztof Kies- 
lowsk/s trilogy, “Blue," “While,” and “Red" (in 
competition), and of the Romanian, director Ln- 
cian Pintihe’s “Un Eli Inoubhabk," has been 
pulling off these co-productions with Easton 
Europe even before Pavel Longtime?! "Taxi 
Blues." “Red" — fraternity is the theme— is a 
Franco-Swiss coproduction, sianing Irtae Jacob 
(“La Double Vie de Veromque”) ana Jean-Laris 
Trintigrtanl Kntilie’s film, which stars Krhtm 
Scott-Thomas. takes place on the banks of Ac 
Danube during the 1920s, a drama played out 
between Romanian harder guard*, Macedonian 

smuggler s and Bulgarian villagers. •

LONDON THEATER 


Designer Scenes: 6 Les Parents’ Done In by High Camp 


By Sheridan Morlev 

International Herald Tribune 


its 

iri- 


L ON DON — With 
“An Inspector Calls'' 
umpiring both in the 
West End and on Broad- 
way, it is perhaps not surprising 
that the National Theatre should 
have developed a taste for high- 
camp. director-led revivals of long- 
lost classics from the 1940s. Thus 
we now have Cocteau's *'Les Par- 
ents Terribtes” at the Lyttelton, 
and again we are asked to accept ou 
faith that it would not be enough 
for a modem audience just to re- 
vive the play as written hair a cen- 
tury ago. 

So it now starts behind a cinema 
screen, with the cast on inadequate 
radio microphones. 2 nd ends (as 
the current “The Birthday Pam" 
on that same stager with the set 
vanishing back into the darkness. 
Once aga in we have the design er {in 


this case Stephen Brunson Lewis 
working with the artist Ricardo 
Cmalli) as star, and once again it is 
the vision of the director rather 
than the author that is allowed to 
dominate throughout. 

So Cocteau’s tight liule comedy 
of incest and appalling relative val- 
ues becomes a Grand Guignol gro- 
tesquerie. with Sheila Gish and 
Frances de la Tour camping 
around as the sisters from hell and 
Alan Howard peering at them 
through his mad-iriventor goggles 
while Jude Law and Lvnsey Baxter 
complete the cast as the doomed 
young lovers. 

It is indeed possible that, unlike 
"An Inspector Calls.” “Les Parents 
Terribles” is unrevivabie as written 
or originally produced, though Pa- 
risian experience might suggest 
otherwise. What is clear is that if 
you load an always fragile piece 
with this much director-designer 
“concept,” it is bound to look over- 
blown and vaguely ludicrous, a vast 


theatrical machine from which a 
little tiny obsessive comedy of in- 
cest and death set in the junk room 
of the heart is frantirally signaling 
to be let oul 

In an age of director's theater, 
however talented, pity the poor 
playwright, dead and past com- 
plaining. 

At the Strand. Michael Palm's 
first stage play. ''The Weekend," 
turns out to be a suburban English 
“Death of a Salesman" for the mat- 
inee crowd. Richard Wilson, also in 
his West End debut, re-creates his 
popular local TV-siteom grouch at 
the head of a somewhat dysfunc- 
tional family recollected by its au- 
thor with a rare mixture of nostal- 
gia and nausea. 

But this dysfunctional is not 
like the Cocteau version: nothing 
like incest here, just a disgruntled 
chiropodist and a plot concerned 
with little more than the prepara- 
tion and demolition of a dinner 


party. Uneasily trapped between 
the Alans Ayckbourn and Bennett, 
Palin seems uncertain whether to 
condemn or celebrate his all-too 
recognizable scenes from domestic 
life, and as a result, “The Week- 
end” only flickers briefly to life 
when the father is allowed his Willy 
Leman speech about the way that 
“there was once someone alive in- 
side me.” 

Elsewhere a desperately thin 
but what once was called “well- 
observed” comedy is fatally 
flawed by apparent tricks of mem- 
ory: Palm can never quite bring 
himself to decide whether these 
are truly appalling people who de- 
serve the pain they cause each oth- 
er, or whether they are a funda- 
mentally well-meaning and 
harmless group of relatives and 
neighbors who just happen some- 
how to have got on the wrong side 
of life and can no longer find the 
map back to happiness. 

"The Weekend" is a vague, me- 


andering, noncommittal domestic 
detail, apparently written, directed 
and played with a perpetually apol- 
ogetic shrug of self-denial and ex- 
cuses for absence. 

Moved into the West End from a 
regional tour in the belief, probably 
correct, that London is so starved 
for good stage thrillers that even a 
weak one is better than nothing, 
Terence Frisby’s "Rough Justice” 
(at the Apollo) plays almost all its 
trump cards in the first scene. 
There we leant that a brain-dam- 
aged baby has been mercy-killed 
with a cushion. What follows is 
therefore not a whodunit or even a 
whydunit, but a somewhat labori- 
ous examination of subsequent 
court and legal procedures. 

There are virtually only four 
characters here: a judge (Alan Do- 


Shaw) and his understandably dis- 
traught wife (Sarah Berger). Bat 
once be has introduced that all to 
us. and told us of the tragedy that 
has led to a murder prosecoiiaa. 
Frisby has nowhere mudrto 
except into a trial that has 
been concluded in advance. 


Sure there are debating pant* 
here, over intent and the mffaaice 
between mercy-kiJIing, mansfai^D- 
ter and murder. But we a re nwy 
really given enough background, 
nor depth of character, to carevo)

MEAN HIGH TIDE 


By James W. Hall. ?”/ oa»es. 
521.95. Delacortc. 


Reviewed by 
David Nicholson 

J AMES W. Hall’s new novel, is a 
Florida thriller, with all of the 
virtues, and all of the flaws, of thai 
well-established subgenre. Its prac- 
titioners' formulas vary — the au- 
gust Elmore Leonard is noted for 
his trademark snappy dialogue, 
while Carl Hiaasen is prone 10 
quirky, bizarre humor — but there 
are common dements to the recipe. 
Take one suntanned hero (some- 
times a troubled but plucky wom- 
an 1 living happily at Lhc margins: 
stir in a crisis provoked by devious 
villains (organized crime or big 
business); season with the lu>n 
landscape, and add a dash of out- 
rage at the rape of the Florida envi- 
ronmenL 

“Mean High Tide” includes all 


of these elements, but to reduce the 
novel to them is not to disparage 
Hall, He is a talented writer who 
effortlessly tosses off vivid descrip- 
tions. The details of his characters' 
lives iu the Florida Keys are right 
on. and his plots are compe lling 
enough to keep you reading long 
past bedtime. True, from tune to 
lime, as in the second chapter when 
one character has a presentiment of 
her death. Hall leu the English ma- 
jor show. Just before Darcy Rich- 
ards enters the water to go snoricel- 
ing. she imagines a shark following 
her and thinks. “Time’s finned 
chariot.'’ 


himself the subject of a murder 
attempt. Much complicated busi- 
ness follows. There is a not-so-fair 
young maiden. Sylvie Winchester, 
who, like some character from a 
fairy tale, seduces men and then 
watches them die trying to free her 
from her father. The father. Hard- 
en Winchester, obsessed with his 
former wife, has hatched a compli- 
cated scheme to ruin her second 
husband and, not coincidentally, 
wreak havoc on the Florida seas. 

Much of this is eminently satisfy- 


ing. Half knows how to drive a plot, 
and the hits, as they used to say on 
Top 40 radio, just keep on coming. 

The trouble, though, is that 
Thorn isn’t very likable. A classic 
mystery hero who lives by a code 
where “only conduct counted. Be- 
havior was everything," Thom is 
supposed to be a man driven 10 
desperate measures by grief. In- 
stead. he comes off too often as an 
insensitive jerk, a pseudo-Heming- 
way, lacking even a leavening of 
humor and self-awareness. 


Hall, it's dear, is writing what he 
wants to write, and wishing he'd 
bring his flair with words and in- 
sight to a novel about ordinary peo- 
ple living ordinary lives is like' wish- 
ing a composer of exquisitely 
crafted popular songs would write 
a sonata. 

But the mystery genre imposes 
particular limns on those who write 
within it. chief among them stem- 
ming from the Tact that we contin- 
ue to road a series because of the 
main character. He (or she> can't

Darcy's death is the engine that 
sets the plot in motion. The police 
think it was an accident — hunting 
a lobster. Darcy got her hand 
caught in a crevice and ran out of

Soon, however, our hero. Thom] 
begins to believe his girifriend’s 
death was murder. His sidekick.

Norwegian, as well as a former 
sheriffs deputy turned private de-

crevice and somebody had held her 
there.

N OT all of the films are made of snri} 
hard stuff, but even the comedies 
have a melancholy twist Private 
lives are exposed in Nanni Mcm- 
ti’s “Caro Diario,” an auteur's matings an cities 
and islands, movies and television, (Erectors 
dead and alive, and on his own brush witii 
death. Rudolph’s “Mrs. Parker” is a battle of 
legendary wits and a study of their sadder 
moments. Giuseppe Tomatore’s “Una Pure 
Formalita," stars Roman Polanski and Girard 
Depardieu in a confrontation between a police 
inspector and a writer, caught in his web. Mi- 
chel Blanc's “Grosse Fatigue” is a comedy cm 
the private-public Eves of stars, with Ibe actor 
and Carole Bouquet playing their own rales— 
and bolding tip a mirror to the festival public. 

The festival itself is a mirror: in heroic times, it 
championed Antonioni, Tarkovsky and Wajda, 
and it has always stood by its renegade offspmg. 
It is a festival that thrives on difficulty and 
confrontation, family feuds and reconahatk&, 
so the show will go on without Spike Lee, 
without the majors — at least for the time-being 
— but with movies that reflect the worid today.

NEW YORK. — Slocks rallied 
on Tuesday after the U.S. bond 
market posted early gains in the 
wake of be tier-th an -expected bid- 
ding at a Treasury bond auction. 

The Dow Jones industrial index 
closed with a gain of 27.37 points, 
at 3,656.41. At ‘one point in the 
session it bad risen as high as 
3,666.22. 

Advancing issues outpaced de- 
clines by about 13 to 9 on the New 
York Stock Exchange. Trading was 
active, and volume on the Big 
Board's floor was calculated at 
295.17 million shares, up from 
250. S3 million on Monday. 

The benchmark 30-year Trea- 
sury beard was quoted at 85 11/32, 
up 1 13/31 The yield slipped to 
7.50 percent from 7.63 percent. 

The credit markets posted solid 
gains after the Treasury auctioned 
about J17 billion in three-year 
notes and dealers said the bondand 
stock markets appeared to be re- 
lieved after days of trepidation that 
the auction might have attracted 
little interest. 

The Dotes were sold at an aver- 
age yield of 6.54 percent, slightly 
bdow expectations. 

Some analysts, however, stressed 
the outlook for ihe auction had been 
so bleak against the current back- 
drop of rate uncertainty that it was 
not hard to find more demand for 
the notes than had been expected. 

“Today is simply a reaction to 
the bond' market,” said Ricky Har- 
rington, senior vice president at In- 
terstate/ Johnson Lane, “I would 
doubt that this rally could cany on 
more than one to two days. Stocks 
are still captive to bonds.” I 

He said that the rally reflected 1 
technical forces at work and repre- 
sented a reflex action after four 
days of retreating stock prices. 

A number of the stalwart blue 
chips, including Caterpillar, AT&T. 
General Motors, IBM and Interna- 
tional Paper helped lift the market

China to Unionize 
Foreign Firms 
Over Next 2 Years

BBC I .inks With Pearson 
In Global T V Expansion 


Compiled by Ovr Staff From Dispatch** 

BELTING — China, citing 
what it called serious labor 
abuses, said Tuesday it planned 
to unionize all foreign-funded 
companies in the next two years 
to protect Chinese workers. 

The official Xinhua news 
agency quoted Yang Xingfu. 
vice-chairman of the All-China 
Federation of Trade Unions, as 
saying that less than 10 percent 
of the 47,000 foreign-funded 
concerns, which employ about 
6 million Chinese, have unions. 

He said that many investors 
supported unions, especially 
among large or medium-sized 
companies, but claimed that 
there were serious problems 
among some s mall companies. 
He said they often force staff to 
work overtime, do not taeed la- 
bor safety rules and deliberately 
find fault with workers to cut 
wages oi fine them. 

In November, 84 women died 
in a fire at a Hong Kong doll 
factory in south China that kept 
windows and all but one door 
locked to prevent theft. Anoth- 
er fire in a Taiwanese- run fac- 


tory a month later in eastern 
China killed 61 workers. 

Mr. Yang said that unions 
should be set up in all foreign 
ventures in major development 
zones, currently concentrated 
on the east coast, by the end of 
this year and within two years 
for the country as a whole. 

Mr. Yang said the the action 
was necessary due to a “grow- 
ing number dr labor disputes in 
foreign-funded enterprises." 
Foreign-funded companies in- 
clude those wholly owned by 
foreigners, joint ventures with 
foreign investment, and foreign 
franchise ventures. 

Xinhua's report did not clari- 
fy whether the unions would 
cover the thousands of unregis- 
tered migrant laborers who are 
often cheaply employed in for- 
eign companies, especially in 
ventures funded by interests in 
Taiwan and Hong Kong. 

Chinese news reports have 
said that local officials are re- 
luctant to crack down on abu- 
sive foreign companies for fear 
they might relocate.

Jiang Voices Confidence 


Imemattorwl Herald Tribune 

BEIJING — President Jiang 
Zemin said Tuesday that C hina 
needed to bolster its legal sys- 
tem and enforcement practices 
to protect and advance foreign 
investment across the country. 

Mr. Jiang, addressing a dele- 
gation of major multinational 
companies, conceded that “cer- 
tainly there will be difficulties” 
in melding socialism with a 
market economy. But he said he 
was confident china would suc- 
ceed over time. 

In view of the “realities” in 
China, Mr. Jiang said, “we 
should make a continuous ef- 
fort to increase the rale of law 
in our country" in order to im- 
prove the investment climate. 


His comments come as Beij- 
ing is struggling to slow its 
economy and cut inflation 
while reasserting economic con- 
trol over the provinces and 
maintaining social stability. 

Mr. Jiang welcomed the 
heads of four corporations who 
are the chief sponsors of a 
“1994 China Summit” orga- 
nized by China's State Commis- 
sion for Restructuring Econom- 
ic Systems and the 
International Herald Tribune. 

The conference, which begins 
Wednesday, will bring togefher 
more titan 500 foreign and Chi- 
nese businessmen and govern- 
ment officials to discuss the role 
of foreign business in China.

LONDON — Jn an effort to 
Increase its share of rapidly grow- 
ing television markets around the 
world, the BBC said Tuesday that it 
plans to create news and entertain- 
ment channels in Europe, Asia and 
the United States. 

The BBC said its international 
expansion, which will put it in more 
direct competition with the tikes of 
Ted Turner, Rupert Murdoch and 
the American broadcast networks, 
nil! lake place through a partner- 
ship with Pearson PLC. one of Brit- 
ain's largest media companies. 

The partnership's first venture, in 
which Pearson will invest as much as 
S45 million, will be two satellite- 
delivered channels in Europe. One 
will be an all-news network and the 
other an entertainment network.. 
They are scheduled to go cm the air 
by the end of the year. 

Although no firm plans have 
been set. the BBC and Pearson are 
also considering a wide range of 


China to Launch 
Foreign Satellites 

The Associated Press 

BEIJING — China will launch 30 
fraeign-owned satellites over the 
next seven years, officials said Tues- 
day. a surprisingly high figure that 
suggests Oiina's commercial space 
program has become successful. 

The figure of 30 foreign satellites 
was much higher than previously 
disclosed estimates. One known 
customer is Motorola Inc., the 
U.S.-based communications com- 
pany that last year said it planned 
to send 66 satellites into space on 
various carriers to create a global 
mobile telephone network. Motor- 
ola has not said exactly how many 
of its satellites China will launch. 

Another customer will be 
Hughes Communications Interna- 
tional Inc., a subsidiary of General 
Motors Corp. Hughes signed a con- 
tract in February with China’s 
commercial launch company. 
Great Wall Industry, to put il 
Hughes-built satellites into space 
over the next 12 vears. 


other opportunities around the 
world for news and entertainment 
channels, children's programming 
and educational and documentary 
networks, executives said. 

The move comes at a time when 
government deregulation oi broad- 
casting and the rapid development 
of satellite and cable technology 
has set off a global stampede by 
programmers and broadcasters to 
establish new networks. 

Mr. Murdoch's News Corp. cf 
Australia has invested heavily in 
satellite-delivered services such as 
BSkyB in Britain and STAR TV in 

Asia. 

Mr. Turner’s Turner Broadcast- 
ing Co. is making a big push to 
establish Cable News Network 
around the world, and is Lrying to 
become a competitor in entertain- 
ment television with its Cartoon 
Network and TNT movie channel 
in Europe. 

NBC purchased a pan-European 
broadcaster, now called NBC Super 
Channel. Capital Cities/ABC has 


acquired a string of European j-

Big Order for Airbus \ 

Compiled by Our Staff From Dispatches ^ 

MONTREAL — Air Canada said Tuesday it has signed a letter o 3 
intent io acquire 25 Airbus A-319 aircraft with an option to buy 1< 
more. The order would make Air Canada the largest North Ameri l 
can operator of Airbus aircraft by 1998. r 

The new models of the twin-engine, jet aircraft, which have a so * 
called fly-away price of about S39 million each, will replace Ai e 
Canada’s existing fleet of 35 McDonnell-Douglas DC-9 aircraft, tin 
airline said The DC-9s entered service in 1967. I 

A key reason why the Airbus A-319 was cboseu over other aircraf ■ 
was its similarity to the Airbus A-320, of which there are 34 in Ai) 
Canada’s fleet, said Kym Robertson, a spokesman for the airline 
Deliveries of the new planes are expected to begin in December 1 996 1 
Air Canada said its decision to buy the Airbus aircraft will alsr 
result in a review of its plans to modernize the DC-9 jets. Tht ! 
modernization was intended to extend the operating life of the olda 
planes beyond 2000 . 

Earlier this year. Air Canada placed an order for six wide- body 
Airbus A-340sl and took options on three additional models of the . 
four-engine planes. 

Miss Robertson said the A-319 and A-320 aircraft use the same' 
engine, and that pilots can be trained on the same simulator. ' 
reducing maintenance and training costs. The engines are built by 
CFM International I no, a joint venture of SNECMA, the French 
state aeronautics company, and the U.S.-based General Electric Co.

CNN Passes Around the Mike

Special to the Herald Tribune 

A TLANTA — To the more suspicions 
media-watchers, CNN is a new kind of 
Kg Brother. But at the World Report 
Contributors Conference held last week 
at the CNN Center in Atlanta, the cable news 
station could almost pass as a kindly unde. What- 
ever the case maybe, the symbiosis between CNN 
and its independent World Repent contributors 
might be unique in the media world 
World Report, which was begun in October 
1987, is the “ope® make" of global television. Any 
TV journalist or station can become a contributor 
simply by sending in a videocassetle. If it is techni-

U.S. Opposes 
Trade Talks 
In Singapore 

Bloomberg Business Ne ny 

SINGAPORE — Singapore re- 
sponded unhappily on Tuesday io 
an American derision to oppose 
bedding an important trade confer- 
ence in the dry-state. 

The U.S. trade representative, 
Mickey Kantor, said late Monday 
that the United States opposed Sin- 
gapore's offer to hold the first min- 
isterial meeting of the new World 
Trade Organization. Mr. Kantor 
linked the U.S. stance to the caning 
last week of an 1 8-year-old Ameri- 
can, Michael Fay, for vandalism. 
UJ5. officials had protested that the 
punishment was too harsh. 

The opposition to Singapore's 
bid was the first known retaliation 


" Michael Tay, a Foreign Ministry 
spokesman, said Singapore regret- 
ted Mr. Kan tor’s statement. He 
said the World Trade Organiza- 
tion, not the United States, should 
deride where to hold its meeting. 

“Singapore’s bid to hold the 
minis terial conference still stands,” 
he said. 

The US. move came to light 
when reporters asked Mr. Kantor 
whether Washington, during a trade 
meeting Iasi month, in Morocco, had 1 
objected to Singapore's bid to host 
the meeting because of the caning, 

“The United States thinks the 
trade ministerial should be held 
somewhere else,” Mr. Kantor said. 
“I made myself quite dear in Mar- 
rakesh on that issue.”

ment's increased spending plans on

■•This is where the market will be

Svdney-based economist. “Those 
growth forecasts further out look a 
little high for comfort, and there 
wilt be disappointment at the lack

This fiscal looseness woujd put 
the onus on monetary policy to 
control future inflation, with nega- 
tive omens for bonds. 

The lack of tax rises in the bud- 
get means that the Australian op-

Compiled h lire Sufi From Difpoieliei 

FR,^NKFURT — Lufthansa AG took a step 
Tuesday toward becoming a private company, as 
its trade unions agreed to convert pensions from 
a state-run plan into a company retirement plan. 

The accord follows a compromise ia>i week 
with the German government, which will con- 
tribute 2.6 billion" Deutsche marks t$t .57 bil- 
lion} in cash and guaraniees for Lufthansa 
pensions. 

The conversion is nece^ary il the state, 
which owns 51 percent of the airline, is to 
reduce its stake to less than a majority. Lufth- 


ansa employees would then no longer qualify 
for the state-run pension program. 

“In reaching a final settlement of the pension 
problem, the negotiating partners hate paved 


the way for a capital increase at Lufthansa and 
the airline’s privatization," Lufthansa said. 


the airline's privatization," Lufthansa said. 

The unions have also accepted standard 
terms for employment in Lufthansa subsidiar- 
ies. The airline wants to spin off various subsid- 
iaries for specialized tasks, and has in- 1 sled on 
flexibility in hours and other conditions. 

The question of who would assume the pen- 
sion burden was seen bv anal 1 . sis as critical to 


the airline's future. Last week's deal spread the 
costs between the government and Lufthansa

MOSCOW — Like almost all big enter- 
prises in Russia, Far East Shipping of Vladi- 
vostok needs money, a lot ofit, w survive and 
expand in a time of economic and industrial 
upheaval 

But instead of demanding subsidies from 
tbe government or cheap loans from the cen- 
tral bank, as most large companies in this 
country have, Far East Shipping wants to 
raise $100 million or more in a way that until 
recently had not been possible for Russian 
companies — by selling shares to investors. 

Far East Shipping is a pioneer in what 
oould be one of the most critical and treacbei- 
ous areas of Russia's economic reform, the 
development of equity markets through 
which companies can raise capital. 

For the last few years, stock exchanges have 
been springing up across Russia. Most have 
been limited to trading the vouchers issued by 
the government to citizens for use in acquiring 
shares in enterprises being privatized. 

Now, however, companies are starling to 
look at securities markets as a way of financing 
their operations and expansion plans. 

“The first stage of tbe development of 
securities markets has been d*^ np d by a 
struggle for control of enterprises,” said Dmi- 
tri Vasiiiyev, deputy chairman of the Russian 
Securities Commission and of the State Prop- 
erty Commission, the government agency 
overseeing privatization. 

“We’re now in transition from the first 
Stage to the second, where enterprises can 
raise capital through market structures. In 
some respects, this development has occurred 
more quickly than many people supposed.” 

Analysts caution that there are immense 
hurdles In Russia for companies wishing to 
raise capital and for investors interested in 
purchasing their shares. 

Trading is now spread among dozens of 
exchanges across the country and an informal 
over-the-counter market. Various govern- 


ment ministries are squabbling over who 
should regulate the markets and how tightly. 
There are few reputable and experienced 
Russian brokers to handle any sales. 

Public confidence has also been shaken by 
widespread fraud among investment funds 
that trade in privatization vouchers and shares. 

The Moscow police force said it bad inves- 
tigated more than 500 cases of investment 
fraud so far this year, including one in which 
an apparently sham fund cheated 10.000 in- 
vestors out of $8 mil li nn 

Perhaps roost important, few Russian com- 
panies have much financial information to 

Now, companies are 
starting to look at the 
securities markets as a 
way of financing their 
operations and 
expansion plans. 

provide to investors, and in many cases man- 
agers are reluctant to make pubOc what data 
they do have. 

Business plans, where they exist at all are 
often vague. Managers frequently give the 
impression that they are more interested in 
entrenching themselves for the short run than 
in running the company for the long run. 

“Shares in Russia are really not proper 
shares,” a government official said. “They are 
really more like lottery tickets.” 

Even among strong Russian companies, 
there has been resistance to cutting work forces 
to affordable levels, to focusing on their most 
viable businesses and product lines, and to 
bringing in new maoageis and outside direc- 
tors — an Steps that investors are likely to 
demand before plunking down their rubles. 

Indeed, some analysts say that the develop- 


ment of equity markets would put pressure 
on corporate managers to shed their old Sovi- 
et-era mentality and Stan focusing on profit 
and long-term survival instead of just retain- 
ing their jobs and perks. 

Other analysts add that even for those 
enterprises that present themselves to the 
markets in tip-top condition, there is the 
question of where the capital will come from. 
Some officials believe there will be consider- 
able interest among Western investors, but 
that is no guarantee. Tbe extent of capital 
available for investment from Russians also 
remains undear. 

Mr. Vasiiiyev said optimistically that Rus- 
sians had exchanged trillions of rubles into 
hard currency, ana that some of those billions 
of dollars would flow back into ruble invest- 
ments if inflation could be am trolled. 

There are also signs that tbe flight of capi- 
tal from Russia is slowing or even reversing, 
with Russians who previously chose to slow 
their new wealth in Swiss banks now seeing 
attractive opportunities closer to home. 

The International Monetary Fund recently 
estimated that capital flight from Russia de- 
clined to $8 billion last year from $13 billion 
in 1992. 

A few Russian companies have been able 
to attract investment directly from the West 
But for the vast majority, tbe only alternative 
to government subsidies or new equity has 
been to take bank loans, though as a practical 
matter that option has been largely dosed to 
them. With Russia’s inflation exceeding 8 

percent a month, interest rates are too high 
for most companies. 

“You'd normally expect debt raising to 
play a bigger role in the economic and corpo- 
rate development of Russia than it does at the 
moment,” said Arnold Shipp, a director of 
Samuel Montagu ft Co„ a British investment 
bouse that is waiting on a pilot program to 
hdp Russian companies raise equity. 

^Because it doesn't, this places a greater 
reliance on funds from equity markets.”

slightly and that growth is now expected to reach 1.4 percent in 1994 and 
14 percent in 1995. Previously it had predicted increases of 1 .25 percent 
for 1994 and 2 percent for 1995.

BASLE, Switzerland — 
Roche Holding AG, the Swiss 
drag and chemical company, 
said Tuesday that its planned 
S5.3 billion acquisition of Syn- 
tax Gap. would not weaken its 
e a rning s 

Chairman Fritz Gerber of 
Roche, speaking at the compa- 
ny’s annual press conference; 
said theSyntextakeoverwould- 
help “create a broader base” for 
research and development costs 


and help turn products oat into 
the market quickly. 

Mr. Gerber emphasized that 
despite healthcare reforms that 
have turned the industry into a 
“buyers market,” research and 
product development would re- 
main Roche’s focus. 

Last month, Roche reported 
1993 net profit of 14 billion 
Swiss francs ($1.7 billion), up 
29 percent from 1992,

PARIS — BSN SA the largest 
food company in France, is chang- 
ing its name to Danone to try to 
improve its recognition and increase 
international market share. 

Danone, the brand name on 
about 270 of BSN’s products, is 
much better known outside of 
France than BSN, and the compa- 
ny plans to expand in several coun- 
tries soon, said Antoine Riboud, 
the chairman of BSN. 

“It wifl be a plus in our interna- 
tional strategy,” he said. “Our am- 
bition is to become a truly interna- 
tional group.” 

Danone brands account for 
about one-third of BSN’s total 


sales, and three-quarters of Dan- 
one sales occur outside of France. 
But the name is primarily associat- 
ed with dairy products and could 
create an Image problem when 
BSN begins to expand in other 
ares, said Alain Kerfoum, industry 
analyst at NatWest SeQier in Paris. 

Beerisapariof BSbTs expansion 
strategy. The company said it plans 
to increase its slue in San Miguel 
Fabrica de Oerveca ft Malta SA 
over tbe next four years. BSN al- 
ready owns 25 percent of the Span- 
ish brewer, which produces 15 mil- 
lion hectoliters (195 million 
gallons) of beer a year. 

Mr. Riboud valued the remaining 
75 percent of San Migud at 2 billion 
French francs ($352 million). 



BSN also plans to expand in Mo- 
rocco, Brazu and Russia. In Mo- 
rocco, tbe French company will 
pay 10Q million francs to take a 
2.74 percent stake in Omnium 
Nord Africain, a Casablanca-based 
food producer. 

In Brazil BSN is buying a stake 
in Campinetra Alimentos, the sec- 
ond-largest cookie maker in the 
country. Campineira turns out 
57,000 metric tons of cookies in the 
Sfio Paolo region. “We wifl take a 
stake of 49 percent die first year 
and anything is possible after 
that,” Mr. Riboud said. 

In Russia, BSN will set up a 
dairy in the town of Togliattigrad, 
southeast of Moscow. The town is 
the ate of a large car plant prqject 


involving Fiat SpA owned by the 
Agnelli family with which BSN has 
worked closely in tbe past. 

BSN’s announcement of a name 
change came as it posted a 13 per- 
cent increase in sales, to 17.75 bil- 
lion francs, in the first quarter. But 
excluding acquisitions and dispos- 
als and the effect of exchange rate 
fluctuations, sales rose just 3.9 per- 
cent in the period. 

That, however, exceeded the 2.9 
percent sales growth recorded in 
the whole of 1993, a year marked, 
by weak consumer spending be- 
cause of the recession in Europe. 

Sales in the quarter were led by 
dairy products, which rose to 5.45 
billion francs from 524 billion a 
year earlier. ( Bloomberg, AFP, AP) 


Cost Cuts Help Veba Profit 


Compiled by Our Staff From Dispatches 

DUSSELDORF — Veba AG, 
the diversified German utility and 
energy company, said tbe effect of 
cost-cutting measures lifted profit 
35 percent in the first quarter and 
should lead to higher earnings for 
the full year. 

The company said net profit in 
the first quarter rose to 271 milli on 
Deutsche marks ($169 million), 
from 201 million DM. Veba said 
pretax profit rose 19 parent, to 608 
million DM, in the period. 


Profit also rose through higher 
sales. Revenue grew 6 percent, to 
17J billion DM due to higher sales 
of electrical power, chemical prod- 
ucts, trade and services, while oD 
and transportation businesses were 
slightly weaker than during the like 
span last year. 

In an interim report, Veba said 
that as cost-cutting measures begin 
to take effect, it expected profit for 
the full year to be “significantly 
higher” than the 1.01 billion DM it 
recorded last year.

TOKYO — The Taiwan com- 
P^»am Acer Inc. wants to spin 
offroost of its activities to become 
a loose group of companies united 
»y the Acer name and by access to 
common technology, the compa- 
m founding chairman, Stan Shih 
said Tuesday. 

^ Mr. Shih said that under this 
disintegration’’ strategy, Acer 
Planned to give up its controlling 
interest in most of the 21 comp*, 
mes n plans to spin off by the end 
of the decade. He said Acer was 
ready to become a minority share- 
holder in various subsidiaries while 
focusing its Taiwan operations on 
the development of new persons! 
computers and industrial activities. 

For example, Acer’s share in its 
Mexica n subsidiary will fafl to 19 
percent after the company's local 
fasting, expected next year. Mr. 
Shih said he also wanted die capital 
expansion of subsidiaries to be

the chief financial officer for Ori-

would improve the profitability of

The alliance would dovetail with 
a deal reached in March between 
Musm and the three shipping com- 
panies, a so-called Tonnagr Shar- 
ing Agreement The three are Nedl-

casting agreement between Orient 
Overseas and American President 
for the exchange of vessel space,

The four shipping companies 
also are discussing the possibility 
of a joint service by way of the

they said. 

Each of the four lines would con- 
tinue to maintain separate market-

Bloomberg Business Nc*s 

HONG KONG — When China started listing 
state companies in Hong Kong last summer, pent- 
up demand sent prices through the roof. 

Now they have plummeted with a thud, and 
oncc-euphonc merchant bankers are admitting 
that the time has come for a reassessment of 
China’s overseas listings, 

"The rarity of Chinese paper has long gone," 
said Nick Moakes, an analyst with S. G. Warburg 
Securities. “From now on, people are going to be 
more selective about what they buy and the price 
they are willing to pay ”

fering has been fully subscribed — but barely. There 
were valid applications for 340.87 million shares, 
barely surpassing the 340 million lhai the company 
plans to seU The stock is to start trading next week. 

Compared with its predecessor, that is a muted 
reception. China's Gist seven listings of dass-H 
shares — sold by companies allowed to raise funds 
in Hong Kong — were met with a stampede of 
investors. K un mi n g Machine Tool for example, was 
627 times oversubscribed when it came lo market on 
Dec. 7. During their trading debut on Tuesday, 
shares of another China-related stock, the joint- 
venture ING Beijing Investment Co„ fell 17.6 per- 
cent from their issue price; Since December, the 
Jardine Fleming China H Share index — which 
tracks the performance of China stocks — has fallen 
almost 50 percent, to 1.116, from a high of 2^25 as 
of Monday^ market dose 
Ask foreign securities companies why H share 
prices are falling, and most blame the Hoag Kong 
market. The territory's key Hang Seng index of 33 
blue-chip companies has fallen 313 percent since 
Feb. 4, when the U .S. Federal Reserve Board started 
pushing up interest rates to stave off inflation. 

“It's Hong Kong," said Jerry Yim, assistant direc- 
tor of corporate finance at Jardine Fleming Securi- 
ties, a co-sponsor of the Tianjin Bohai listing “The 
issue came at a bad time, with people very nervous. " 

Said Junidti Goto, executive director of invest- 
ment banking at Nomura International (Hong

the heady days of last year, when any stock with a 
China label was snatched up. Investors are con- 
cerned about inflation, speculative investment and 
recently sour economic news. Particularly trou- 
bling are rising debt levels at state-run enterprises 
and mounting unemployment. 

“People are losing confidence in the Chinese 
economy,” said Sonja Jong, China analyst at Mee- 
sPierson Securities (Asia) Lid. 

Chinese companies also may have brought some 
of the problems on themselves. They often pushed 
for listing sponsors to create large oversubscrip- 
tions so they could keep the interest on the money 
bidders put up, security companies say.

Nick Moakes. analyst with S. G. 
Warburg Securities. 


Investors also are taking a second look before 


income because of the huge oversubscription. Com- 
panies keep money from unsuccessful subscribers in 
the bank for about a week before returning it. 

“Last year’s huge price rises were dearly over- 
done because a lot of investors had unrealistically 
high expectations of H shares," said Mr. Yim. 

Some securities companies even see a silver 
lining, since expectations had grown so wildly. 

“If Tianjin Bohafs subscription level injects a 
note of realism into what Chinese companies de- 
mand of merchant banks, then it can be seen as a 
good thing," said Mr. Moakes of S. G. Warburg. 

Whatever its causes, the dimmished enthusiasm 
for Chinese slocks is not easily dismissed as a 
passing trend. 

“There will be a fundamental change in atti- 
tudes in the way people negotiate Chinese initial 
public offerings in the future," Mr. Yim said. “The 
terms of listings are going to have to be more 
flexible." 

While remaining optimistic about Tianjin Be- 
hai's trading prospects, Mr. Yim conceded that the 
stock was unlikely to sell well.

semiconductor technology that 
make it possible to process the

produce realistic, three-dmienaon-

industry analysts say that no 
matter how good its graphics, the 
machine's success wEQ depend on 
whether Sony can persuade soft- 
ware developers to produce games 
for the PlayStation. 

“It’s amply a matter of soft- 
ware,'' said Makio Inui, industry 
analyst at Khsnwort Benson Inter- 
national Inc. He said to availabil- 
ity of tides to attract users is what 
makes or breaks a game system. 

Mr. Tofcunaga said Sony has 
lined up 164 software makers in 
Japan to provide games for the 
machine. About 27 titles wiB be 
ready for to PlayStation’s release 
in Japan at the end of this year, he 


without any distortion. The Play- 
Station allows users to zoom in on. 
or even turn upside down, to im- 
age on the screen. 

The key is in to use of more 
than 20 semiconductor chips to si- 
multaneously process the data used 
to create three-dimensional im- 
ages. This parallel-processing sys- 
tem, created by Sony for the PlayS- 
tation. works on the principles of a 

supercomputer. 

Instead of waiting for one chip 
to process a series of instructions, 
Sony’s system uses several chips to 
process parts of instructions sit the 
same time. A central chip them 
combines to processed parts. 

Mr. ToJnmaga said to PlaySta- 
tion would not have a major effect 
on Sony’s earnings, because it will 
account for only a very small pari 
of to company's sales!

■ Taiwan Challenge to Intel 

United Microelectronics Corp. 
introduced a computer processor 
Tuesday that is compatible with 
Intel Corp-’s 80486 chip. news 
agencies reported from Taiwan. 
United Microelectronics, the 


No. 2 semiconductor maker in T ai- 
wan. said it would begin deliveries 
of to chip this month and that it 
already had 1 billion Taiwan dol- 
lars (S38 million) of orders. 

United’s shares rose 1 dollar lo 
88 on Monday. 

“This is a significant step for 
Taiwan,” said Ben Lee, an elec- 
tronics industry analyst with 
Wardley James Cape! (Taiwan) 
Ltd. But be said United Microelec- 
tronics may face legal disputes with 
Intel, and delivery and profitability 
were uncertain. 

Analysis said the announcement 
was timed to coincide with the 
company's sale Thursday or 5160 
million of debt to foreigners, one of 
the largest ever by a Taiwan com- 
pany. 

“The liming is deliberate — 
there's no doubt about LhaL 1 ' said 
Jon Ross, chief of Taiwan research 
at HG Asa Securities. United Mi- 
croelectronics will begin the sale of 
convertible bonds to investors in 
Hong Kong on Thursday, an exec- 
utive familiar with the issue said. 

The 486 chip is used as the cen- 
tral processing unit in many per- j 


sonai computers, although Intel's 
top-of-the-Iine Pentium model has 
begun to replace it. 

United Microelectronics strove 
to play down the possibility of re- 
prisals from Intel. “We arc fully 
confident that our products do not 
infringe any Intel CPU patents or 
other related intellectual proper- 
ty.” said (he company’s chairman. 
Robert Two.

Compiled by Our Staff From Dispaukes 

CANBERRA — The Australian 
government is counting on eco- 
nomic growth and increased invest- 
ments to trim its yawning budget 
deficit in to year to June 1 995, the 
country’s treasurer said Tuesday. 

The 1994-95 budget should 
shave about 13 percent from the 
deficit, taking it to 11.73 bflUou 
Australian dollars ($8 billion) from 
the previous years 13.59 billiou, 
Ralph Willis said. 

The 109 bfllion dollar budget 
contained no new taxes and few 
spending cuts aside from lowering 
defense spending by 163 million 
dollars. It relied mostly on acceler- 
ating economic growth, asset sales 
and improved (ax collection meth- 
ods for revenue growth. 

The government expects busi- 
ness investment, which fell 12J 
percent In calendar 1993, (o top 
14 j percent in 1 994-95 for its 
strongest contribution to growth 
since 1988-89, leading to an eco- 
nomic growth rate of 4.S percent 
for the year. 

Growth in the economy is expect- 
ed to slow, however, to 425 percent 
in 1995-96 and 4.0 percent for the 
subsequent two years, while infla- 
tion is expected to remain low al 2J 
percent in 1994-95 and 3.0 percent 
in 1995-96. Mr. Willis said. 

He stressed monetary policy 
would aim to hold down inflation 
and nurture business investment. 

“The challenge before us is thus 
to ensure that inflation is kept low 
while the recovery gains momen- 
tum,'’ Mr. mhs said. 

But economists said to govern- 
ment’s projections for economic 
growth and a sharp drop in to 
deficit were optimistic. 

“It's a budget that assumes ev- 
erything is okay in Australia and 
we’ll continue to grow,” said Ivana 
Bottini chief economist at Society 
Gtnhrale Australia. “It's very 
short-term." (Reuters, AFP)

said, adding: “He still bad a sense 
of humor,” 

Johnny Ruffin relieved Brown- 
tog and struck cut Ganfrocco. 

The Reds won the game, 3-2, 
after Bret Boone doubled leading 
off the seventh and scored on Brian 
Dorseit*s single. Dorset! moved 
around on Larkin’s sacrifice bunt 
and one wild pitch by Pedro Marti- 
nez, then scored on another wild 
pitch. 

Browning, who pitched the per- 
fect game in 1988, against Los An- 
geles. missed three months of the 
1992 season because of ligaments 
ruptured in a home-plate coffisoa. 
In 1993, he was out the final two 
months with a pitching bund frac- 
tured by a ground ball. 

“This is a very rare injury,” said 


the Reds’ assistant trainer, Doug 
Sprees. Tve never heard of one. 
The only thing I’ve ever beard of, a

For Sampras, 
Plot Thickens

mmm 


Lmunn MHIkt/ Ftamci, 

Pete Sampras, serving to Aaron Krickstein: “When I'm not playing well, I have found away to win." 


By Ian Thomsen 

International Herald Tribune 

ROME — It was a forgettable 
Tuesday, a rough draft written to 
be thrown away. Tbe deadline is 
not until June S, m Paris, and Pete 
Sampras was simply building to- 
ward it with a 6-1, 7-6 (7-2) victory 
over Aaron Krickstein in the first 
round of the Italian Open. 

“Fm going to try to give myself 
in the next match a little more mar- 
gin of citot," be said. “I don’t know 
what my serving percentage was — 
probably in the 30s — and that isn’t 
whCTe 1 want u to be, especially on 

day." 

He said he had been trying to hit 
too many big serves — he put only 
41 percent of them into play, and in 
his mind he seemed to be scribbling 
down that statistic. Don't shoot for 
the tines so much. He was going to 
aim closer to center the next tune. 
He was not going to force iL 

The French Open, on clay, is less 
than two weeks away, and the 
world’s top-ranked practitioner of 
tennis has been preparing for it since 
be won the Australian Open in Jan- 
uary. He has beat thinking about it 
certainly, and perhaps trying a few 
things be might use when it comes 
time to settle down and attack the 
thing. It is tbe only Grand Slam 
title he has failed to win, and to win 
it now would give him a consecu- 
tive Grand Slam of sorts. 

“It would be four in a row, 
wouldn’tit?” he said slyly; it would 
be the Dm best thing to Rod Laver’s 
Grand Slam 25 years ago. Sampras 
held bis breath fora theatrical mo- 
ment and said, “1 really have not 
thought about it It’s the last thing 
on my mind at this poinL” 

He probably does not think 
about iL in the way a writer cannot 
think of the roy alties while the pro- 
tagonist’s fate is still in doubt, the 
way a golfer can go amiss by think- 
ing he has it won on the 14th green. 
What Sampras certainly has been 
drinking is how he is going to win in

After three weeks of practice cm

every player was hoping to becomO

Krickstein standing alongside the*- 
clean-cut Sampras, you said,^ 
“Krickstein sure is going to be bol " 
under all that hair." n 


Bonds hit his third sbm in the 
majors, and his eighth homer of tbe 
year, in the third inning. Williams 
connected in die sixth. 

Todd Benzinger also homered 
for tbe Giants, while the Rockies 
set a team record with the five 
home runs, by Ellis Burks. Andres 
Galarraga, Charlie Hayes, Roberto 


Mqia and pinch-hitter Howard 
Johnson. The eight homer are the 
most hit in an NL game this year. 

Cubs 6 , Cardinals 3: Eddie Zam- 
brano hit two two-run homers and 
Chicago. just I- 1 2 at Wriglev Field, 
pulled to 8-8 on the road. 

Sl Louis has scored only nine 
runs in losing four of the first five 


games on an eight-game home 
stand. 

Zambrano has 1 1 hits this season 
and seven Tot extra bases, with four 
of them borne runs. 

Mets 5, Expos 4: David Segui 
had a solo bonier in the eighth as 
New York won in Montreal for its 
fifth triumph in six games. 


Paris, of the plot he is~ going to 
is stiB only 22 and it is the 


write. Heis 
most stubborn requirement of his 
job, to realize that he can accom- 
plish only so much in one day. 

Trooping though Center Court 
were his most charismatic rivals, 
one following the next: Jim Cburi- 
er, in pursuit of a third straight tide 
here, beating the Czech qualifier 
Libor Nemecek, 6-3, 6-3; then, af- 


seemed to win confi- u 
deace Iran the match — starting] 
weR, struggling with his serve in 
ways he felt were correctable, and % 
still serving big on the biggest J 
points. “II you don’t play well 5 
against Aaron, you’re going top 
lose," be said. But then Sampras’s^ 
biggest improvement has come in 3 
the matches be used to lose. 

’’Compared to two or three years 
ago, Tve been warning a lot of t' 
matches where I was not playing & 
that writ," be said. “Tm not really k s 
getting down on myself after a bad n t 
point or a bad game. Tm quick to ' 
recover and keep my composure. 
When you play well, obviously y 
that’s not a problem. When I’m not , 
playing weQ, I have found a way to l 
win." J 

“Even if he’s done real well, once ' 
be gets on the clay be might second- u 
guess himself,” Krickstein said. ' 
“The more matches he plays, the „• 
more he wins over the next two ^ 
weeks, the better off he’ll be." 

For sure, Krickstein added, "He 
couldn’t go into these tournaments 
feding any better than he does this ‘ 
year." 

So this week is about finding a ’ 
routine, about not losing one’s bal- ; 
ance at the neL It is not yet about " 
winning the consecutive Grand 
Slam. It is about finding the way to 1 
win.

INDIANAPOLIS — The way Lam’ 
Brown remembers it, the first thing he said 
to Reggie Miller, after Brown bad been 
named coach of the Indiana Pacers last sum- 
mer, was, “Reggie, you’re not going to warn 
to hear this, but . . 

The way Reggie Miller, the star guard and 
high scorer of the Pacos, remembers iL 
Brown said, “Reggie, you’re going to have io 
make sacrifices . . 

Turns out that Miller did not mind hearing 
it at aO, and that he did make sacrifices — 


coached — 8 in 22 years — gathered his team 
in the locker room at Market Square Arena 
here and ran the last quarter of their third 
and final game against Orlando, coming 
from 8 points down with 10 minutes to go. 
and winning by 13. 

“I wanted them to feel good about them- 
selves." said Brown. 

He speaks slowly and distinctly, his 
brown-rimmed glasses glittering in the lights 


Then he clicked the game forward. And 
there was guard Vern Fleming, who had 
been injured and wasn't even expected to 
play, diving for a loose ball. Stops action. 
Makes note. Clicks forward. 

And so it went: Haywoode Workman, the 
starting point guard who. like Davis, had 
played in the Italian League last year, throw- 
ing a pick that sets up a Miller shot (“We 
would never have got this far without Tony

senous defense, accepting the role of the 
coach’s chief p unishm ent taker — for what 
was to be the common goal cf Brown. Miller 
and the rest of the Indiana Pacers: success in 
(he National Basketball Association playoffs. 

Some nine months after Brown and Miller 
first spoke, the team has done what no other 
Indiana te a m in the NBA had ever done: 
won a playoff series, a first-round, three- 
game sweep of the favored Orlando Magic. 

Tuesday nigjbL the Pacers entered the sec- 
ond round of the playoffs — no games were 
played Monday — against Atlanta the 
Hawks having finally cooled off the Miami 
Heat While the Pacers were waiting. Brown 
decided to show them game films of — 
themselves! And it was to moke a significant 


__ point: Look guys, look how good we can be.

of the arena. He looked slight, in a blue, 
short-sleeved shin and khaki slacks buL at 
age 53, this one-time standout playroaker at 
North Carolina and then for 10 years in the 
American Basketball Association looks fit 
enough to go full-court. 

“I wanted them to see what they had 
accomplished," he said. 

“in that quarter, it seemed tbe culmina- 
tion of the whole season, of everything that 
we had worked for coming together, playing 
hard, playing unselfishly, having different 
players step up just when we needed them.” 

On the video, there was Antonio Davis, a 
forward-center, “coming off the bench and 
doing unbelievable things." recalled Brown. 
He slopped the action, and noted to the 
team: “Look at Tony go for that rebound, 
look at that effort!” 


and Haywoode," Brown has said.) Rik

around jump shoL Derrick Me Key, the for- 
ward they had acquired for Dedef Scbrempf. 
hounding, with team help, Orlando guard 
Nick Anderson into a turnover. 

And there was Miller with a 22-foot jump 
shot, a 21-foot shot, a drive, another, and an 
assist, and another. And a steal. “1 knew it 
would ail have to start with Reggie,” Brown 
had said. He had told Miller that he would 
get on him in practice, and in games. 

“Every player can get better" said Brown. 
“My job is to make you, and the team, 
belter.” 

Miller understood. “If he could get on me, 
and help make me a more complete player. 


the other guys knew that it was OX for him 
to get on than,” said Miller. 

Back to the video: Byron Scon, who had 
won three championship rings with tire Lak- 
ers, and who was signed as a free agent in 
December, helps provide the leadership and 
the jump shooting Brown felt was needed. “I 
told Byron, teach them how to win,” said 
Brown. “TeO than what it takes.” 

And Scott had. After the Pacers ciincbed a 
playoff spot, he sakl. “We haven't done any- 
thing. We’ve got the playoffs ahead. We can’t 
relax. We have eight games left in the regular 
season, four at home, four cm the road. Let's 
try to win all of them, so we can have a 
positive momentum going into the playoffs.” 


The Facers woo ail 8 of the games, and 
they now have won 11 in a row. 


Brown likes to gjve his veteran players — 
all players, in fan — responsibility, and in 
practice or even in games, wiO solicit their 
opinion. “What do you guys think?” Scott 
recalled. “Should we da tins or that? What 
are you most comfortable with?” 

But he also has an iron fist Tm a very 
demanding coach,” Brown said, “but I tell 
my players, 'Don’t listen to tbe tone of my 
voice, listen to what I have to say.’ After all 
coaches get emotional Coaches can do fun- 
ny things." 

And the players listen because, as Miller 
said, “He has had 21 winning seasons in 22 
years, you have to respect that track record.”
