North Yemen 

The official northern radio gave no casualty 
figures for Taizz. 140 kilometers (85 miles) 
northwest of tbe sou them stronghold of Aden, 
c Sa ^ °^ ss ^ es landed in residential areas. 
Satfa radio vowed that northern forces 
would take revenge against southern leaders 
but suggested they would not use missiles 
against southern civili ans, 

According to the radio, houses in San‘a and 
' T a‘izz were hit by “internationally banned Scud 
missiles” and “demolished’' while residents

San‘a is the stronghold of President Ali Abd- 
ullah Saleh, who is locked in a week-old war 
with Vice President Ali Salem Raid. 

On Wednesday, General Saleh told his 
southern foes to leave the country or be kfltoi 
“I am ready to give instructions to the De- 
fense Ministry to stop attacks against the rebels 
so they can leave Aden port to Djibouti or 
anywhere eke," General Saleh said. “If they do 
not do this now they will pay a high price and 
will lose their lives.” 

The president’s remarks, quoted on San ‘a 
television, came during a meeting with police 
officers in the capital hours after southern 
forces Bred the Scuds, 

General Saleh called the attack a “cowardly, 
treacherous action, which will not go unpun- 
ished." . 

San's radio said, “The gang of the vile killers 
wiQ never escape the people’s retribution." 

The north has accused Mr. BakJ of leading a 
srcfwwimst struggle to spEt the country, which 
was cleared, by a merger of die conservative 
north and the Marxist south m 1990. 

Mr. Baid’s southerners oppose what they see 
as General Saleh’s despotic style and. accuse 
-bufrfet wanting to run Yemen as an autocrat. 
"_In Cairo, tire Yemeni foreign minister. Mo- 
hammed SaBm Baseodwah, said after meeting 
President Hosni Mubarak that northerners bad 
the upper hand in the fighting and that the war 
would be over wit hin 24 hours. 

He called on members of the southern Ye- 
men Socialist Party, whom he Warned for the 
conflict, to give themselves up, promising they

He said the north would accept a cease-fire if 
the southerners agreed to recogirize the govern- 
ment of Genera] Saleh, respect the country's 
unity and put aD the armed forces under the 
government's control. 

The armies of the two countries never merged 
after the 1990 union. 

Witnesses to tbe missile attack in San‘a said 
they heard a deafening sound and then saw a 
dust column rising into the sky. Terrified moth- 
ers and children ran screaming in search of 
shelter after the missiles landed.

Palestinian Police Begin Work in Gaza 

By David Hoffman 

Washington Post Service 

JERUSALEM — A Palestinian police 
force began taking over abandoned bases 
from the Israeli nnJitary government in the- 
Gaza Strip early Wednesday and announced 
that its first major task would be to disarm 
thousands of Palestinian civilians. 

Although it is not known precisely how 

ra precise 

many guns are held in Gaza, Palestinians said 

there might be several thousand and perhaps 
more in the hands of dvffians as well as 
among the guerrillas and fugitives who have 
used them in the revolt against the Israeli 

“The main purpose of having the guns was 

for resisting the Israeli occupation, but now 
we are getting into a new era of reconstruct- 
ing our national authority." said the com- 
mander of the newly arrived police force. 
Major General Nasr Yousef. He did not say 
how the police intended to confiscate the 
weapons, which have often been kept hidden. 

He spoke at a news conference al the police 
headquarters in Gaza City, while at the town 
of Dor el Balah. Palestinians thronged into 
the barracks of the first contingent of police- 
men to cross the border from Egypt. They 
pulled into the compound just before dawn 
on Wednesday after an emotional parade 
from the border. 

vehicles parked outside, the policemen, 
dressed in army fatigues and bearing assault 
rifles, were awash in greetings from residents, 
who refused to leave the premises. They 
showered the policemen with traditional 
Arab greetings, flowers, candy and an all- 
night celebration, defying the night curfew 
that has been imposed on Gaza since the 
Palestinian revo't began. 

The police lock over a while building that 
used to be surrounded by Israeli soldiers and 
had served as headquarters for the Israeli 
military government, which was a haled sym- 
bol of the occupation to many Palestinians

German Interest Rates 

Slashed to 5- Year Low- 

But Surprise by Bundesbank Fails 
To Ignite StiUrSkeptical Markets j 

By Brandon Mitchener 

International Herald Tribune 

FRANKFURT ■ — The Bundesbank cut Ger- 
man interest rates Wednesday to their lowest 
levels in five years, in a move that bad monetary 
ripple effects' across Europe even as the Federal 
Reserve was believed to be considering raising 
U.S. interest rates again. 

.After months of talk about slow, cautious 
easing, the powerful German central bank sur- 
prised markets by slashing its cheapest rate on 
loans to banks, the discount rate, to 4J percent 
from 5.0 percent, and lowering its most expen- 
sive rate, the Lombard, to 6.0 percent from 6.5 

The central h anks of Austria and Italy fol- 
lowed the Bundesbank's move, while rate cuts 
in Denmark and France had preceded it. 

The German finance minister, Theo Waigel. 
and the U.S. Treasury secretary. Lloyd Boil- 
sen. said that the monetary action would 
strengthen the economic recovery in Germany, 
where interest rates have not been so low since 
July 1989. before German reunification. 

Tbe Bundesbank, in a published statement, 
said that its move “underlines tbe fact that the 
outlook for stability in Germany has im- 
proved.” But it took aim al investors who have 
parked funds in high-return, short-term depos- 
its that have spurred a worrisome expansion of 
the M-3 money supply, the bank's major ba- 
rometer of inflation. 

“With this step, we should have reached a 
configuration that favors a gradual dissipation 
of the liquidity backlog and stronger monetary 
capital formation." the Bundesbank said. 

The twin rate cuts, which exceeded most 
market expectations of cuts of a quarter point 
and followed the last leading rate cuts on April 
15 by less than a month, also took advantage of 
the strength of the Deutsche mark. The cuts 
supported the dollar, which briefly jumped a 
pfennig on the news. 

The dollar is expected to find further support 
if the Federal Reserve raises U.S. interest rates 
again, an event that many economists believe 
could be imminent. (Page 11) 

Although lower interest rates in Europe are 
widely regarded as grease for the wheels of its 
national economies, European markets seem to 
have largely shrugged off the cuts amid a grow- 
ing feeling that Bundesbank action would now 
be less frequent. 

“The Bundesbank'- statement reads as if that 

was it,” said Jo achim Fels, an economist 
Goldman Sachs International in Frankfurt. 

‘The speed will slow down considerably 
the second half of the year,” Stefan SchneicP 
an economist at Nomura Research Institute 8 
Frankfun, told Reuters. * 

Some economists argued that the Bund 3 
bank would now wait a few months to £ 
whether its move has tbe desired effect of * 
during growth in the closely watched M-3 me 
ey supply before lowering the discount iri 
a gain. » 

But Mr. Fels said that lending by ban 
rather than interest rale distortions.' was > 
main factor driving M-3 growth, and he qu 
tioned the central bank's stated justification 
cutting its leading rates on Wednesday. 

“We don't think investors want to cornu 
themselves to long-term investments because 
developments in the capital markets," he s< 
“They ve seen that interest rates on the 1C 
end are volatile. They’re unwilling to buy lo£ 
term bonds now because they expect the ra* 
might rise further. Instead, they opt for she 
end bonds, stocks, or real estate." 

“I think they’ll now watch to see if invest^ 
shift assets out of short-term deposits," he sa* 
But he cautioned that “we have our doubts.- 
Analysis al Salomon Brothers Interaatioi € 
were also skeptical. “A failure of M-3 to dec 
erate sufficiently during this year — still} 
notable risk — could raise bond market fears’ 
eventually hi gher inflarinn and prompt i 
Bundesbank to bring the rate cuts to a h. 
sooner than expected,” they wrote in a maxi^ 
comment ^ 

The M-3 money supply rose 15.4 percent,] 
March, well above the Bundesbank’s target 
money supply growth between 4 percent an*, 
percent for the full year, a range that ecov 
mists are increasingl^xfismissina as onrealis- 
Tbe target range is scheduled for a reasst 
menl m July. 

Analysts said the Bundesbank's sharp i" 
cut probably reflected both the weakness of 
dollar and a recent surge in German exp 
orders. Together the two factors have "redu- 
fears that the Deutsche mark might deprecn 
sharply and boost imported inflation," acco. 
ing to Salomon Brothers. I 

"The main reasons were to jolt the econo 
and to shock investors out of liquid assets, 
tbe dollar's weakness made tbe decision easit , 
said Mr. Fels. t

Mandela Names Wife and Inkatha Leader to Cabinet 

By Paul Taylor 

Washington Post Service 

PRETORIA — On his first full day in office. President 
Nelson Mande la pul the finishing touches on his cabinet, 
a dding watranged wife as well as the Ink a tha Freedom Party 
leader, Mangosuthu ButbdezL 

Chief Butbdezi, a longtime adversary of Mr. Mandela’s, was 
nomwt Miniver of Home _ Affairs, a portfolio that administers 
citizenship documents, al ie n control and elections. 

Winnie Mandela, a political wildcard who has been separat- 
ed from her husband since 1992, was named deputy minister of 
arts, culture, science and technology. She is the head of the 
African National Congress’s Women’s League. 

Both appointments reflect the depths of Mr. Mandela s 

commitment to indusiveoess in Souib Africa's new a'alition 
cabinet. They also reveal a disposition toward the old adage 
that says it is safer have one’s potential enemies on the inside 
than on the outside. 

Chief Bulhdezi, too. has shown a commitment to working 
from within rather than opposing from without. Though In- 
katha had been assured of 3 or the 27 cabinet posts by virtue of 
its I0J percent showing in the national elections last month. 
Chief Buthelezi had kept everyone guessing until Wednesday 
about his intentions toward a cabinet slot. 

In an interview in December, the chief dismissed the notion 
that he would ever enter a coalition government led by the 
African National Congress, observing' that "Mandela hates 


The two have known each other for more than 40 years, and 
their relationship has always been difficult and competitive. It 
became especially poisonous in the last decade, as their sup- 
porters engaged in bitter faction fighting that claimed the bulk 
of the 20.000 lives lost in political violence. 

But Mr. Mandela worked hard lo urge Chief Butbelezi to 
come into the election campaign — a step Inkatha finally look 
just a week before the voting — and wooed him again to come 
into the cabinet. On Wednesday, the two whispered chummiJy 
into each others' ears as cameras clicked for the official portrait 
of the new cabinet.

ROME — Smiling in victory, Silvio Ber- 
lusconi was sworn in Wednesday as Italy’s 
prime minister, heading a government that 
inspired adversaries, at least, to question 
where it would lead the nation after more 
than two years of corruption scandal. 

Flanked by ministers including five mem- 
bers of his ncofascist National Alliance co- 
alition partner. Mr. Berlusconi, 57, took the 
oath of office, pledging to “be faithful to the 
republic. loyally to observe its constitution 
and laws and to exercise my functions in the 
exclusive interest of the nation." 

From its very beginnings, the three-party 
coalition government seems certain to face 
demands from inside (he country that it live 
up to its campaign promises of a dear break 
with the past and an economic revival to 
give jobs to one million Italians. 

“We are not expecting miracles," said 
commentator, Giuho Savdli, “But we 
pect, right from tbe fust cabinet meetim

KRIVA PALANKA. Macedonia — 
About 20 kito/new* northwest of this vil- 
lage in Ihe mouniainous Balkan comer 
where Macedonia, Serbia and Bulgaria 
meeL a little bit of America has sprung up, 
heavily motorized and heavily armed. 

The" soldiers of what is, as far as their 
officers know, the first American ground 

combat unit ever to serve in the Balkans 
have brought with them comforts that are 
most uncommon in the mountain villages 
of one of Europe's most backward regions. 

They have installed flush toilets and 
running hot water. Their refrigerators are 
stocked with fresh and frozen meats and 
poultry and other staples of the American 

When not out on foot or motorized 
patrols, they make do for recreation with 
movies, television, a VCR. a library. They 
lift weights and ride an exercise bicycle. A 
large meadow serves as a football field. 

The American contingent is the largest 
unit in a United Nations monitor force 
that has taken up positions at observation 
posts along Macedonia's borders with Ser- 

bia and Albania since last year. I.At of 
mid- May. the American contingent stood 
at 510 soldiers.) 

The UN force serves as a largely sym- 
bolic deterrent against possible spreading 
of the conflicts in Bosnia and Croatia. 
Norway. Finland and Sweden supply the 
bulk of the remaining force. 

“We are here to show the UN presence, 
observe, monitor and report along fhe bor- 
der between the former Yugoslav Repub- 
lic of Macedonia and Serbia in order to 
contribute to the stability of the former 
Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia," said 
Private First Cass Fong Xiong of the 3d 
Infantry Division of the U.S. Arms. 

Private Xiong was reciting a well-mem- 
orized brief and using the official name for 
the country that is his host. But the Ameri- 
can monitors still share some of the out- 
side world's perplexity at the region's con- 
voluted history. 

Asked what he knew about Macedonia 
when he learned he was to be assigned 
here. Sergeant First Class John A. Mou- 
53 w replied: “Let me make it real brief — 
zip. When they said Macedonia, i didn't 
know where it was.” 

What the troops have learned goes be- 
yond the UN’s impartial brief. In the sol- 
diers' minds. Serbia is identified as the 
enemy, and their mission is seen as helping 
to protect Macedonia against Serbian at- 

“They just want to keep this land and 
not be occupied as they were for the last 
hundreds of years." Sergeant Mousaw 

From 1944 until it declared its sover- 
eignty in 1991, Macedonia was a republic 
of Yugoslavia, with nominally the same 
status as Serbia. As the poorest of the six 
republics. Macedonia benefited from am- 
ple economic aid from the federal govern- 

Perhaps that is why its citizens seem not 
to rejoice at independence or the end of 
communism. There are still pictures in 
public places of Tito, the founder of Com- 
munist Yugoslavia. 

The resentments voiced by Macedo-

BONN — President Boris N. Yeltsin began a three- 
day slate visit to Germany on Wednesday, pushing 
hard on several fronts with his friend. Chancellor 
Helmut KohL for more respectful and dignified treat- 
ment of Russia. 

“Dear Boris" and “my friend Helmut" hugged each 
other warmly in bright spring sunshine, but there was 
tough diplomatic bargaining nonetheless. 

Mr. Yeltsin offered Russian support for a perma- 
nent seat for Germany in the United Nations Security 
Council, “if it is expanded." 

in response. Chancellor Kohl gave German support 
for the full inclusion of Russia in the group of the 
world's most powerful industrial democracies after the 
economic summit this summer in Naples. 

Mr. Kohl, who insisted in 1985 that President Ron- 
ald Reagan visit a German military cemetery that 
included the graves of a few Waffen-SS soldiers, 
diplomatically gave way to Mr. Yeltsin's objections to 

a ceremony for departing Russian troops this summer 
in the eastern German city of Weimar. 

The Russians felt that this would invite compari- 
sons between their 49-year occupation of eastern Ger- 
many and the cruelly of the nearby Nazi concentra- 
tion camp in Buchen’wald. 

At a news conference. Mr. Yelisii did not bring up 
previous suggestions that Russian .loops should be 
included in military parades for the British, French 
and American soldiers who defended West Berlin in 
the midst of communist icrritorv until unification in

ll'iiibiijrvi Post Senior 
SARAJEVO — The senior Unit- 
ed Nations official in Bosnia has 
taken steps to restrict contact be- 
tween the press and the UN opera- 
tion here following an article in The 
Washington Post in which two se- 
nior UN civilian and military offi- 
cials criticized U.S. policy. 

In an interoffice memorandum 
addressed to all senior military and 
civilian staff. Yasushi Akashi. spe- 
cial representative of Secretary- 
General Butros Butros Ghali. 
banned the men and women serv- 
ing under him from giving briefings 
to reporters unless They were “dis- 
cussed and cleared with my spokes- 
man in Zagreb." 

Mr. , Akashi also said he was dis- 
turbed at the “unexpected degree 
of naivete" on the part of “a num- 
ber or senior officials,” and effec- 
tively prohibited them from further 
criticism of any UN member state 
because such “unacceptable” eval- 
uations could be "immensely dam- 
aging to our mission." 

The memorandum, dated May 4. 
made references to two previous 
instances in which Mr. .Akashi has 
sought to limit press access, an in- 
ternal statement on press guide- 
lines issued Feb. 2 and a subse- 

quent note “regarding the 
unauthorized release of informs- 

partnership reluctantly as a possible first step toward 
full membership in NATO for themselves something 
Russia objects to strongly as a threat to its >ecurity. * 

lion" dated April 8. 

Press reports here are generally 
seen by the UN operation as re- 
vealing a pro-Muslim bias, while 
many reporters believe UN offi- 
cialsare unnecessarily tough on the 
Muslim side. 

The latest illustration of bad re- 
lations concerns a deal negotiated 
bv Mr. Akashi in the Bosnian Ser- 
bian stronghold of Pale last week. 
Under terms of the bargain, the 
UN let Serbian forces move tanks 
through a zone around Sarajevo 
where the North Atlantic Treaty 

Organization had banned such 
heavy weapons. In exchange, the 
Serbs agreed to release a company 
of British soldiers who had been 
headed for the Muslim town of 
Gorazde before Serbian forces 
blocked their way. 

While Mr. Akashi denied any 
linkage between the two incidents, 
UN officials in Sarajevo contra- 
dicted him. 

The latest missive was prompted, 
the memo said, by an article In The 
Post on April 30 in which two se- 
nior civilian and military officials 
of the UN operation said" the Unit- 
ed Slates was partly to blame Tor 
the continuation of the war in Bos- 
nia because it had given the mostly 
Muslim Bosnian government the 
false impression that America's 
military support was on the way. 

One of the officials went on to 
say that the UN's goal in Bosnia 
had essentially become the attain- 
ment of peace at any cost. 

The article angered the U.S. del- 
egate to the United Nations, Made- 
leine K. Albright, and Mr. Butros 
Ghali said he would open an inves- 
tigation to discover the source of 
the criticism. 

In Mr. Akashi's memo, he said 
the article “Is only the most fla- 
grant case in a series of incidents in 
which senior officials have spoken 
in a careless, undisciplined and un- 
professional manner to journal- 

Texan Tied to Duchess of York Is Held 

LONDON (AP) — John Bryan, the man once photographed smooch- 
ing with the Duchess of York, was arrested Wednesday in connection 
with allegations that he f afled to pay car parking fees, the-poheesani. •- 

Detectives were interviewing Mr. Bryan, 39, a Texan financier, at 
Heathrow Airport "few false accounting and deception," a police spokes- 
man said. 

The police said last week they wanted to speak to him about alleged 
evasion of car parking fees. Mr. Bryan was reportedly challenged about 
his ticket as he drove out of a parking lot at the airport after Teturrang 
from a trip to the United States. 

Mr. Bryan was described as the Duchess of York's financial adviser 
after her separation from Prince Andrew in March 1992. Months later, 
newspapers published photos of the duchess sunbathing topless with Ur. 
Bryan during a vacation in southern France.

PARIS — For the last half-cen- 
tuiy. Ihe French and the Anglo- 
Saxons have agreed to differ about 
who did what at the Battle of Nor- 
mandy in 1944. 

“The French are persuaded, in 
pan thanks to the rhetoric of Gen- 
eral de Gaulle, that they won the 
war by their own means ‘with the 
help or the .Allies.” Le Monde 
commented in a recent editorial. 

This is not the way that the battle 
is viewed by most historians in 
North America or Britain, and the 
truth so far as France is concerned 
is less heroic than it is often paint- 
ed. Le Monde said. 

Despite such a dash of memo- 
ries. however, there is no doubting 
the sincerity of the welcome for the 
thousands of veterans who will be 
coming to commemorate the Nor- 
mandy landings next month. 

Setting the lone for the com- 
memoration. President Frantjois 
Mitterrand went out of his way 
during the inauguration of the 
Channel Tunnel last week to thank 
Queen Elizabeth in the name of 
France Tor Britain's commitment 
to the nation's liberation. 

Posters throughout the region 
contrast a picture of troops wading 
ashore with the happy face of a 

child holding the flags of the Allies. 
“In June 1944, we said thank you.” 
the posters say. “In June 1994. we 
bid them welcome." 

Some 6 million to 7 million visi- 
tors. including 50.000 veterans, are 
expected for the commemoration. 
The main event in Caen on the 
evening of June o is a 30 million 
franc IS5.26 million) extravaganza 
involving a cast of thousands to 
evoke the battle before an audience 
of 60.000. 

AlmoM every town and village in 
the region will be commemorating 
the landings, even if for mart;. ,.f 
them liberation brought traced;, 
along with freedom. 

Historic Norman towns, includ- 
ing Caen. Cherbourg. St. Lo. Le 
Havre: Lisieux. Pom L'Evcqueand 
Coulances, were flattened h;. Al- 
lied bombers during the course of 
the battle. 

The martyrdom of Norm and - . . in 
which about 15.000 civilian.- were 
killed, has always been a somewhat 
hidden aspect of the war. 

Historians say the bombing, 
some of which occurred after the 
Germans had pulled out. created a 
postwar legacy of nationjli-uc 
Gaullism and resentment in the 
badly affected Calvados and La 
Manche regions.

Veterans Win 2d Batde of Normandy 

LONDON — The British government has sur- 
rendered to World War II veterans by scrapping 
plans for a jamboree in London to mark the 50th 
anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Nazi-occu- 
pied France. 

Veterans' leaders said Wednesday after talks 
with the government that a new event had been 
scheduled whose lone was commemorative instead 
of celebratory. It will be held on Aug. 14 to mark 
the end of the Normandy campaign. 

“The family day in Hyde Park will he a fitting 
and memorable tribute to the servicemen whose 
courage made D-Day and the Normandv cam- 

paign such a success,'* National Heritage Secretary 
Peter Brooke said. 

Prime Minister John Major’s program of events 
for the Allied invasion of France on June 6. 1944, 
was unveiled last month and included fireworks, 
street parties and cooking contests, plus a family 
day in Hyde Park. Officials promised “dazzling 
family entertain men L" 

But enraged old soldiers said such a party would 
be frivolous and trivialize the sacrifice of the dead. 
Veterans’ associations were called in for talks with 
an embarrassed government after calls for the 
party to be dropped completely.

cemetery where 1 60 victims of the

historians argue, marked the emer- 
gence of tbe United Slates as a 
major power in Western Europe

America was “the country wfe*

Yet, American influence was 
more deeply rooted and peryastye

Singapore Relieved 
Kantor Isn 9 t Backed 


SINGAPORE — Singapore ex- 
pressed relief on Wednesday at the 
State Department’s disavowal of 
Ihe U.S. trade representative. 
Mickey Kantor, for his opposition 
to holding a major trade meeting in 

“We welcome the State Depart- 
ment clarification that the U.S. has 
not yet taken a position on our 
proposal to host the first WTO 
ministerial conference," a Foreign 
Ministry spokesman said, referring 
to the World Trade Organization. 

“We reiterate our position that 
our bid to host the conference still 
stands, and it is up to the WTO 
members to decide.” he added. 

Mr. Kantor repeated Tuesday 
that he would oppose Singapore's 
bid to be host for the meeting. 

The U.S. Slate Department 
spokesman. Michael McCurry. 
suggested that Mr. Kantor was ex- 
pressing his own view rather than 
speaking for the United States. 

“I don't believe that we have 
taken a position on who should 
host that.” Mr. McCurry said. “1 
think the ambassador certainly re- 
flected his view on that question. 1 
think he was expressing his view.” 

Mr. Kantor'** statements were 
seen as retribution for Singapore's 
caning last week of an American 
teenager, Michae' Fay. though Mr. 
Kantor did not link his opposition 
with the caning dispute. 

“The United States believes that 
the trade ministerial ought to be 
held somewhere else,” Mr. Kantor 
said on Monday. Next year, the 
WTO will supplant GATT in mon- 
itoring world trade. ■ 

.Asked if his decision was ex- 
pressly related to the Fay caning, 
Mr. Kantor said only, “I have mack 
myself quite clear.” 

Last Thursday. Mr. Fay received 
four strokes of a rattan cane as part 
of a sentence for spray-painting 
cars and other offenses. He also has 
been fined $2,000 and is serving a 
four-month jail term. 

President Bill Clinton appealed 
to Singapore three times for clem- 
ency before Mr. Fay was punished. 

Although Singapore said (he re- 
duction from six strokes to four 
was a gesture to Mr. Clinton, the 
president criticized the caning 
again after it took place, and the 
Singaporean ambassador to the 
United States was summoned to 
the State Department to bear U.S. 

Mr. Kantor stood firm on Tues- 
day. but he did note that the Unit- 
ed States alone would not decide 
who will hold ihe WTO meeting. 

“We believe that the first minis- 
terial meeting, which of course has 
□ot been discussed officially in ihe 
preparatory committee (of the 
GATT), should be held somewhere 
else than Singapore." Mr. Kantor

Socialists’ Leader 
Appeals for Early 
Elections in Japan 

C*mpded fa Our Stuff Fnvn Disputches 

TOKYO - Thd leader of the 
Socialists, who recently took his 
party into opposition, called 
Wednesday for an early general 
election, saying it was needed to 
produce a stable government.

Social Democratic Party, said.

Following the Socialists’ deci- 
sion on April 25 to quit the govern-

tomu Hata formed a minority 
government, the first in Japan for 
39 years. 

Mr. Hata said Wednesday that 
he had no intention of calling an 
election now. 

' ‘Now is not the lime for a disso- 
lution." he said. 

Ignoring the prime minister’s 
statement, the other main force in 
the opposition, the Liberal Demo- 
cratic Party, opened a campaign 
headquarters Wednesday in prepa- 
ration for a new general election. 

"We must be ready for any- 
thing.” the Liberal Democrat's 
president. Yohei Kcmo, told party 
officials. “We must win back our 
place in government.”

conservative, governed Japan from

Many members of Parliament 
believe that calling elections under 
the present, discredited system of 
multiple-seat constituencies would 
be tantamount to nullifying the re-

as a root cause of rampant corrup-

to spend lavishly.

UN Nuclear Agency Hints 
At Deal With North Korea 


SEOUL — The Uniied Nations 
nuclear agency intends to send in- 
spectors to North Korea soon to 
resume the monitoring of nuclear 
installations, the South Korean 
Foreign Ministry said Wednesday. 

A ministry spokesman said Haas 
Blix. director-general of the Inter- 
national Atomic Energy Agency, 
had proposed the inspection trip in 
a letter to the North Korean for- 
eign minister. Kim Yong Nam. A 
copy of the letter was sent to Seoul. 

The spokesman said the agency- 
had also invited North Korea to 
send a delegation to its Vienna 
headquarters to discuss a timetable 
for inspections. 

There was no immediate indica- 
j lion that North Korea would be 

willing to drop its earlier refusal to 
allow inspectors to sample spent 
fuel rods. The rods will shortly be 
removed from a nuclear reactor at 
Yongbyon, north of Pyongyang, 

The UN agency said last week it 
would not send inspectors to North 
Korea until permission was grant- 
ed to conduct full tests on the spent 
nuclear fueL to see if any had been 
diverted for a covert nuclear weap- 
ons program. 

It appeared Wednesday as if the 
UN agency was seeking a compro- 

According to some analysis in 
Seoul, the energy agency might at- 
tend the refueling of the five-mega- 
wau reactor, watch the removal of 
the spent fuel rods and then seal 
them for later sampling. 


LOS BANOS. Philippines — Asia could face 
a shortage of rice, the main staple of the re- 
gion's three billion people, by the turn of the 
century, according to scientists of the Interna- 
tional Rice Research Institute. 

The increasing population, the long develop- 
ment period for new rice varieties and the loss 
of arable land because of rapid urbanization in 
Asia may lead to light supplies and a very- 
volatile rice market, they said. 

"By the turn of the century if we don’t make 
progress, we will have rice shortages in Asia,” 
Gurdev Khush. head of the breeding, genetics 
and biochemistry division in the institute, said 
in an interview. 

Rice production must increase to 770 million 
tons from the current 520 million tons to keep 

up with demand, especially from Asia, whose 
population is growing at more than 2 percent a 
year, Mr. Khush said. 

Mahabub Hossain. an economist who heads 
the institute's social sciences division, said new 
technological breakthroughs in developing rice 
strains would be needed to avoid shortages. 

Mr. Khush said the rice institute, located 
about 65 kilometers (40 miles) south of Manila 
and financed by the Ford Foundation and the 
Rockefeller Foundation, is developing a new 
rice strain that would increase yields from the 
current 10 tons a hectare (2.47* acres) to 12J 
tons a hectare. 

But full development of the new strain will 
take at least eight years because work still has to 
be done to ensure that it is resistant to diseases 

(ike brown plant hopper, tungro virus, blast 
fungus and bacterial blight. - 
Mr. Hossain said scientists were trying to 
develop new plants that could withstand ad- 
verse weather and soil conditions. - 
With only 4 percent of world rice production ' 
traded in the market, prices will remain volatile 
and vulnerable to any fall in production la any 
rice-consuming nation. \ ... 

Mr. Hossain said that when Japan was forced 
to import up to two million tons of rice because 
of a poor harvest, prices in the main rice earn- 
ing nations like tire United Stales andThauaDd 
shot up by nearly 80 percent. 

“The present level of prices is .the highest in 
many years.” he said. “I think rice prices ire 
going to go up. When you have such a lias

Compiled by Our Stuff From Dispatcher 

BEIJING — Inspectors from the 
International Atomic Energy 
Agency said Wednesday that Chi- 
na's nuclear power plants met 
world safely standards but that 
safety still needed to be stressed 

The agency’s headquarters in Vi- 
enna issued the report two days 
after the inspection team complet- 
ed its work. 

The newspaper China Daily said 
it was Lhe first international inspec- 

tion of C hina ’s two nuclear power 
plants, one of which started opera- 
tion in 1 992 and the other this year. . 

“The licensing and review pro- 
cess employed at the Daya Bay and 
Qinshan units conforms with Inter- 
national practice.” Morris Rosen, 
the atomic agency's assistant direc- 
tor-generaL was quoted as saving 

China Daily said the inspectors 
had added that China's National 
Nuclear Safety Administration 
"provides a good model for coun- 
tries developing nuclear pro- 

The Daya Bay facility, in south- 
ern Guangdong Province across the 
border from Hong Kong, has two 
900-megawatt reactors and is Chi- 
na’s largest experiment with nucle- 
ar power so far. Safety fears 
prompted huge protests in Hong 
Kong during the plant’s lengthy 
construction period. 

The Qinshan unit in coastal Zhe- 
jiang Province is a smaller, fully 
Chinese-designed facility that has 
one 300-megawail reactor. 

Both plants are due for expan- 

sion and new plants are planned to 
meet surging demand for power. 

The IAEA inspection, wfak 
lasted two weeks, helped China rec- 
ognize some of the weak points of 
its management, said Huahg'Qiuk).

GATT Chief Warns Beijing: 
Meet Conditions or Miss Out 

Mjnud C'eni-j Arrive hunt.P'i'S 

By Michael Richardson 

Iruemaiiunjl Herald Tribune 

BEIJING — Peter Sutherland, 
the chief of GATT, warned China 
on Wednesday that it was rapidly 
running out of time to negotiate its 
entry into the World Trade Organi- 
zation before it comes into exis- 
tence in January. 

He said that China's trading 
partners would insist on further lib- 
eralization as the price for member- 
ship in the body that sets the rules 
for global trade. 

Mr. Sutherland said lhai while 
China wanted to rqoin GATT, the 
Genera] Agreement on Tariffs and 
Trade, its trading partners who 
would make the decision still con- 
sidered that the country maintain- 
ed "a two-track system” that re- 
stricted imports and market access. 

While C hina had developed ex- 
port production driven by foreign 
investment in special economic 
zones and open coastal cities, it was 
combined with “a considerably 
more restricted trading environ- 
ment in the rest of China.” he said. 

Mr. Sutherland was speaking at 
the opening of an intern ational 
conference on China’s economy co- 
sponsored by the International 
Herald Tribune and China's State 
Commission for Restructuring the 
Economic Systems. 

In a briefing for senior officials 
and business executives attending 
the meeting. Li Peng, China's

Ta^fs^and T^^pldng WedMsday. He said “much remained night that his country, which left 
to be done for China to join GATT’s successor organization. GATT after the Communist take- 

over in 1949, wanted to rejoin and 
“has made up its mind to live up to 
its conditions.” 

However, Mr. Li and other Chi- 
nese officials made ii dear that 
there were limits to how far China 
would go in meeting the member- 
ship terms set down by GATT. 

Western analysts said it was very 
unlikely that China could ngoin 
GATT in time to become a round- 
ing member of the more powerful 
World Trade Organization that will 
take GATT's place early next year. 

Mr. Sutherland said, “The time 
scale is extremely limited and much 

remains to be done.” 

A European diplomat posted in 
Beijing, speaking on condition he 
not be identified, was more pessi- 
mistic and forthright “There’s no 
way they can do it” he said. 

China wants membership in 
GATT and its successor agency to 
mark its emergence as a respected 
and influential trading power. 

It also sees membership as a way 
of increasing its exports, especially 
of manufactured goods, and at- 
tracting new foreign investment to 
provide growth and employment 

Since China began its economic 
reforms in 1979, it has risen from 
being No. 31 in the global trade 
league to No. 1 1 last year, when it 
accounted for 3 percent of world

portance. Mr. Li said that other 
countries wanted China in the new 
trade organization because, if it 

was left out the WTO could “hant 
ly be described as complete.”

Slate Council, China's cabinet and 
chairman of the economic restruc- 
turing commission, said in an inter- 
view that in responding to ques- 
tions from GATT, “We can say

China Seen as Li 

By Thomas L. Friedman 

New York Tima Service 

WASHINGTON — The chairman of ihe 
House Foreign Affairs Committee expects 
China to meet President Bill Clinton's hu- 
man rights demands as a condition to renew- 
ing trade benefits to Beijing. If it does, he 
said, the administration should stop threat- 
ening China with sanctions and use other 
means to promote human rights. 

The chairman, Representative Lee H. 
Hamilton of Indiana, also urged Mr. Clinton 
to lay the groundwork for a policy that 
would take account of U.S. trade, security 
and political interests. 

“I believe the president has not always 
provided the personal articulation and justi- 
fication that his policies need,” Mr. Hamil- 
ton said in a speech at the American Enter- 
prise Institute. 

“On China, we need a broader under- 
standing of our national interest,” he said. 
“We need a skillful balancing of economic, 
security and human rights interests, rather 
than a single-minded emphasis on one objec-

Mr. Hamilton said Mr. Clinton should 
then renew China’s trade status, and perma- 
nently retire the threat of a revocation. In- 
stead. he said, Mr. Clinton should try to 
influence China by fosiering “change 
through personal diplomacy and our eco- 
nomic lies."

Mr. Clinton will find a way io renew all or 
most of China's trade benefits, which allow it 
to export products lo the United States at the 
lowest tariff rates. 

The only real question is what political 
steps the president will take to get down 
from the tall tree he climbed a year ago. when 
he declared that he would not renew traae 
benefits without “overall significant p 
gress" on human right >.

Under another option, some lawmakers 
and human rights organizations argue that 
barring some dramatic move, China at best 
will fulfil) only some of the president's hu- 
man rights demands before the deadline. 

They contend that the president, for his 
own political credibility, cannot renew Chi- 
na's trade benefits across the board, given 
the spotty progress Beijing has made on 

human rights. 
Instead, the 

Instead, they advocate renewing the most- 
favored-nation status for China's private ex- 
ports. but withholding it for selected exports 

Or be could choose the politically more 
attractive route of renewing trade benefits 
selectively, thus remaining true to his cam- 
paign promises while not aborting the trad- 
ing relationship. 

Not only the president has a political in- ' 
terest in such a compromise; so do many of i 
the most outspoken Democratic lawmakers 
who have advocated a tough line on China 
since tbe 1989 democracy movement was 
brutally crushed. 

Although many administration officials 
believe a selective approach is unworkable, 
given the difficulty of sorting out whether a 
company is privately owned or stale-owned, 
for political reasons’ this may turn out to be 
the policy.

In Sweden the average temperature is rather lower 
than we'd like it to be. And while our summers have a 
unique kind of beauty we can’t pretend they’re parti- 
cularly long or hot. 

Nevertheless, at Saab we have always had a passion- 
ate love affair \*'*th the convertible. It isn’t remotely

with love. The result Is : convertible you might want

Engine options include a 150 bhp 2.3 litre. The all-

And we even throw in a very Saab kind of luxury

At Saab we’ve had a long-term love affair with the

even though conventional business practice dic-

The result is the new Saab 900 Convertible. 


We like to make sure inspiration. 


Almost any convertible looks good when the top is 
down. But e: Saab we have a different set of priori-

the top is up. (That’s because in Sweden it’s rare that 
the top isn't up.) 

And when that fleeting ray of sunshine comes we 

we start every journey with

Exactly why you might love it is up to you. Every 
Saab driver has his or her own reasons. We’ve simply

a Danish association of former

The businessman behind the

the opposite will happen — that

Around Europe 

Britain and Ireland have ended 

imported for commercial pur- 
poses, but not for personal pets. 

As part of an effort to lower 
barriers to free trade, dogs and 
cats imported by animal dealers 
will be exempted from the six- 
month quarantine previously re- 
quired to allow for detection of 

rabies. But they will need health 
certificates, individual vaccina-

electronic identification. 

The possibility of extending

the commercial program. 

The Germans just keep getting

British Telecom has mounted a 
provocative campaign to get peo- 
ple to spend more lime on Lhe 
phone. One advertisement shows 
a solitary teenage boy staring 
glumly at a television and asks. 
“Do you ever wish your kids 

would use the phone more?" An- 
other, showing a tease-looking 
man on one phone and a happy- 
looking woman on another (nei- 
ther, for some reason, is dressed), 
asks: “Why can’t men be more 
like women?” 

The ads are based on some sim- 
ple findings which BT hopes to 
turn into big profits: The average 
British household, it says, uses 
the phone for only four minutes a 
day, just one-fifth the American 
average. And researchers say that 
while 64 percent of women think 
nothing oT spending an hour on 
the phone, only 4 percent of men 
ever do so. 

But British papers quote par- 
ents who are angered at BTs at- 
tempt to gel their children to 
spend even more time on the 
phone. An Edinburgh communi- 
cations specialist. Dr. Guy Field- 
ing, is quoted as saving that the 
phone company wili have a hard 
time overcoming the “telephone 
apprehension” common to many 
men, whose use of the phone 
“lends to be instrumental — to

offers delivery within 10 minutes,

A New Cabinet 

6 Whites Are Sentenced to Die 

Continued from Page 1 
cabinet in KwaZufu-NauL there is 
now so much enforced cooperation 
built into South Africa's new politi- 
cal order that ibe rationale for po- 
litical violence has largely disap- 

“Together, we will do what has 
to be done to ensure that interne- 
cine violence never again rears its 
ugly head,” vowed the Inkatha 
chairman, Frank Mdlalose. as he 
was sworn as regional premier of 

Mr. Mandela’s choice of his es- 
tranged wife for a relatively minor 
deputy cabinet position was more 
complex. One of the most polariz- 
ing political figures in the country, 
she is considered to be evil incar- 
nate by a huge majority of whites 

and some blacks, but hailed as the 
mother of the liberation struggle by 
most blacks. 

Though Mr. Mandeb makes it 
clear that be respects her political 
contribution, he is chilly to her ai a 
personal level. In lhe last several 
weeks, Mrs. Mandela has been 
snubbed at many of the victory 
celebrations and inaugural activi- 

The flamboyant Mis. Mandeb 
hit a rock bottom in 1991 with her 
conviction for kidnapping and as- 
sault in a case arising out of the 
murder of a Soweto youth. The 
murder conviction was subsequent- 
ly overturned on appeal. 

Although she lest her ANC posi- 
tions. she remained active at a 
grass-roots level and staged a polit- 
ical comeback by winning the lead- 
ership of the ANCs Women’s 

In recent months, she has spoken 
of leading protests against the new 
government if it fails to deliver. 
Most analysts tend to see her more 
as a gadfly than a substantial 
threat, but in bringing her into the 
cabinet. Mr. Mandeb at least tem- 
porarily neutralizes her as a poten- 
tial left-wing opposition figure. 

On the other hand, it wax not 
clear how much enthusiasm she 
will bring to the job. She did act 
attend Lhe first meeting of the cabi- 
net on Wednesday. 

Other familiar ANC faces in the 
cabinet are Joe Modise, minister of 
defense; Du 11 ah Omar, minister of 
justice; Trevor Manuel, minister of 
trade, industry and tourism; Joe 
Slovo, minister of housing: Sieve 
Tshwete. minister of s-pon. and 
Pallo Jordan, minister of posts, 
telecommunications and broad- 
casting. The ANC has a total of IS 
cabinet slots.

In the next few tveeks, most of 
the civilian functions are to be

huge gaps and uncertainties, such 
as what laws the new police will 
enforce since the Palestinians have

been under a mixture of British 
mandate and Egyptian law, over- 
laid by more than 1 300 Israeli mili-

Despite such problems, the fu-

and the new policemen.

need the support of independents 
to secure victory. 

Although Mr. Berlusconi has de- 
picted his new administration as a 
force for change after corruption 
scandals that destroyed Italy's 
postwar political leadership, that 
view is not universal. 

“In reality, the long march to the 
Second Republic is starling only 
now," said Paolo Franchi. a news- 
paper columnist “It will — and 
there is no point hiding it — be a 
more than uneven transition." 

As much as anything, the corrup- 
tion scandals that implicated about 
6,000 politicians and businessmen 
have left Italians even more cynical 
than ever about their leaders. 

The new government has come 
to office in a mood of sharpening 
conflict with the investigating mag- 
istrates who have spearheaded the 
inquiries both into the corruption 

scandals and the Mafia, and u 
□ow fear that the Berlusconi . 
ministration will seek to slow si 

Before the government took 
f ice, Francesco Savcrio Borrdh, i 
head of the Milan anti-comipt 
investigators, said he sensed “ 
prospect of efforts to weaken . 

Some of the worries center on 
apparent conflict of interest 
tween Mr. Berlusconi's business, 
teres ts and his role as prime mil, 
ter. While be renonneed execub 
positions in his Futinvesi emp 
when he entered politics m Ja. 1 
ary, he has not givm up owners 
and has brought some key busin 
aides into his government as mil 1 ,

Enter President Mandela 

An Inclusive Spirit 

Inaugurations unite winners and lowers, 
iroclaim new eras and provide a snapshot, a 
nomen i frozen in lime for a huge audience. 

J dson Mandela's inaugural in Cape Town on 
$ J-.*1 'uesday was all of that and more. 
j> ^ uc j .More lhan a billion television viewers 
ifvf i ‘ i round the world, surely a record in this 
>fc» ^ lepartmeiu. saw him take the oath as South 
£: J n 5 Africa’s first black president. It was like being 

e ■: • .L . -I T :_.- n ln nfi.-w,* ormi 

I ; five in the time of Lincoln, whose great 
gji fcri ddress Mr. Mandela echoed in affirming that 
I 5 * Etfi oulh Africans finally had a government of. 

jS-jf n -y and for the people, 
ij* j.gj Most remarkable was the orderly way in 
i|pT ^ /hich old white political citadels fell over- 
fF I’lvS ight to new black majorities in both national 
n d provincial parliaments. Former prisoners 
Angled civilly with their erstwhile oppres- 

I iJ: ‘iiiil ?rs. and new anthems and flags became pan 
“I.; f the rites. In a striking and moving gesture. 
\kv Mandela even paused to thank the white 
4 £ : 'orders who had become his friends during 
iifbo ,s 27 years in prison, forming a bond that 
M;< j§b <r armounted the walls or apartheid, 
sjt four Speed and decisiveness were impressively 
?5>ii vident in this transition. With about i»3 per- 
fcw®* 2111 v0le - ^ r - Mandela's African N.i- 
WjL'fT'k onai Congress will he able to name about 
Jp ||gi vo- thirds of the cabinet during five years of 
Hiy fe f ational unity government. And hi.s predeccs- 
H*? i* a$ Jr and chief bargaining partner, the National 

Party leader F. W. de Klerk, now one of two 
vice presidents, gets his pro rata share, along 
with Chief Mangosmhu Bmhdezi's Inkatha 
Freedom Party, which finished third. 

Key seats have already been filled, and. as 
everywhere after elections, winners reward 
loyally as much us competence. Mr. Mandela's 
vice president and likely successor is Thabo 
Mbeki. an articulate and faithful lieutenant. At 
68. the Communist Party leader. Joe Slnvo. 
with his trademark red socks, will be minister 
of housing and welfare, a reminder that the 
Communists, led by whites, were among the 
earliest champions of black liberation. 

And continuity and experience are pro- 
mised in the National Party choices of Derek 
Keys, who will remain as finance minister. 
3nd Rnelf Meyer, the chief constitutional ne- 
gotiator. who w ill handle constitutional issues 
and provincial affairs. 

An inclusive spirit is the hallmark of J new 
government that now has to begin alleviating 
black joblessness and despair while preserving 
order and reassuring whites. Mr. Mandela s 
first moves are wholly in this spint. 

Those witnessing this extraordinary transi- 
tion have reason to share the new president’s 
most fervent wish: “Never, never, and never 
again shall it be dui this beautiful land will 
again experience the oppression of one by 
another and suffer the indignity of being the 
skunk of the world."

gjj; Muse for Optimism 

5ji “e For Nelson Mandela, the journey from p>"*- 
r’ {• 1 ucal prisoner to president took four years, 
jjj | ut in that relatively short time South Africa's 
15 r 2W head of state and the outgoing president. 
Si? j . W. de Klerk, negotiated 300 years of some 
|4 s; ? f the world's grimmest history to .i peaceful 
* ose. The election of Mr. Mandela by that 
as* |!f ** junlry's first multiracial parliament sites 

y; Jj irth to a new South African Republic. It i> 
'l ' u: ! Ie day most S° ul h Africans and the world 
h* o; , ive waited for. Il is also an event for which 

K; 4' tiny South Africans gave their lives. 
fc ib ‘ The euphoria over the transition is richly 
rs— j- j iserved. Vice President Al Gore’s descrip- 
48- on of the moment as “a transition for the 
it 1 , jman race" captures the significance of what 
^ TL , is occurred. S con the honeymoon will end. 

: awever. as it must, and attention will turn 
£ ^ , om the sy mbols of governance to the basic 
• ements of public policy and what must be 
A : >ne by the coalition government of national 
' 1 ,b i lily to reconcile and reconstruct the Counirv. 

• ne nation faces daunting tasks. The partia- 
lis ; entary structure and its members are pris- 
i ie. but the problems that await them are not. 
j t South Africans must tackle a host of deep 
: • id abiding issues, ranging from double-digit 
L : lemployment and illiteracy rate> to expecta- 
>o$ of social change and improvement 
jj; t nongvhe black majority — expectations that 
3*’ ; ay be too high for any leader to achieve, let 

alone during a five-year term. And lingering 
racial animosities and polarization will not 
disappear with the transfer of power. 

Vet to hold the new govern men i to deliver- 
ing the goods to an oppressed people, and to 
overcoming decades of apartheid’s bitter lega- 
cies in the span of a few years, is to assign to 
President Mandela and the National Assem- 
bly obligations and that neither America nor 
any other nation on earth saddled with deep- 
seated racial problems has ever fulfilled. Pres- 
ident Mandela's appeal for patience should be 
heard and accepted h> South Africans and by 
the international community as well. 

The .American pledge to help the transition 
with a flow of direct aid should be promptly 
redeemed. Western nations should also re- 
spond in kind and use their influence m the 
multilateral financial institutions to ensure 
that South Africa’s re-entry into the world 
community is greeted with more than warm 
words of welcome. It will, however, be left to 
President Mandela and South Africa's politi- 
cal and business leaders to creaie the econom- 
ic and social climate that will encourage the 
foreign and domestic investments that the 
country really needs. 

Mr. Mandela said in his inaugural address. 
"There is no easy road to freedom." A nation 
that has made such breathtaking strides — in 
such little lime — has reason, despite the 
challenges, to face its future with optimism.

Paying Clinton^ Lawyers 

' , There really is no good solution to the 
; oblem of how to pay the legal hills that 
esident Bill Clinton will face as a result of 
! iula Jones's lawsuit and the assorted diffi- 
i I lilies created by the Whitewater controversy. 

■ | The idea of a president begging money for a 
! ; gal defense fund is not reassuring. Having 
i : des or friends doing the same is no better. It 
' i ould he wrong for Mr. Clinton’s wcll-ccn- 
i : rcted lawyers to cut their legal fees, since 
at would constitute a gift from law firms 
- ■ at do much business with the government 
‘ at Mr. Clinton leads. The law firms could let 
r. Clinton stretch cut his payments over 
ne. but that could also raise gif t problems if 

( rang were made too generous. 

. Clinton might borrow all the money he 
from a bank, hut what Ls one to make of 
icollateralized loon of an amount that 
run to well over 5>1 million’. 1 
at if the bills were paid by the Dertkvrai- 
lional Committee or by poliuca! funds 
night he left over from the 19*11 canv 
? That creates an arm’s-length rclation- 
nd uses money already donated — hut it 
s the notion that campaign contribution? 
to he used for campaign purpose*, 
ybe it would be best if j .single wealthy 
l paid the entire bill and then pledged 
ever to have anything to do with 'the 

;j Jjvernnvem. But would ht> or her promise be 

;i radible or even possible to upholu? 
f fjThe very worst idea, floated h\ '. 'me in the 
n.'hite House. i> to the ni->ne> raised 
■ » v>ough a kind of blind trust, with no diselo- urc 
i tuievcr. The notion here is that the president 
f °«uld not know where the money came Trom 
: E 't the president could almost een.unl> team 
«»e generosity had helped him out of a jam 
r -ough winks, nudges and nods. You can he 
f; t* that the puhlie would be kept in the dark. 
£ In the absence of anything close to an idejl 
J? ution. the president needs’ to figure >«ut h> «w 
•i ... minimize the problems created by an jvsk- 
;| rd situation. If a legal defense fund is set 
. it ought to be established under much 
icier rules than those currently used by 
'I ’ mbers of Congress. The size of contnbu- 
4] ns should be limited. Current law limits 
^ npajgn contribution.- t* 1 SI.oUM; the presi- 
'% u might consider an even lower limit for 

this fund, perhaps S500. h should take no 
money from poluical action commiuees. none 
from lobbyists and nothing from corporations 
or trade unions. Only individuals could give. 
Any fund-raising should be done outside the 
While House, and the fund-raisers should go 
out of their wav to diversify where the money 
comes from: a lot of checks from the execu- 
tives of a few corporations would raise large 
questions. And there should be full disclosure. 

Still: the idea of a presidential legal defense 
fund is troubling, a reminder of why some 
political systems limit the ability of individuals 
to sue sitting public officials. But Mr. Clinton 
has to pay hi" legal bills somehow. His best 
course is to be open about what he raises for 
this purpose, to exercise self-restraint in how 
he raises it and to diversify where it comes 
from so that he is not left beholden to anyone 
when this mess is finally resolved.

Don't Send Marines to Haiti 

Last time the U.S. Marines marched into 
Haiti, they slaved for 19 year*. The U.S. 
occupation from July l g l3 to August KJ4 
was justified on humanitarian grounds < a mob 
had butchered the president) and to uphold 
the Monroe Doctrine While the American' 
dominated Haiti, politically and financially, 
they did litrle to endear themselves to a popu- 
lation that remained mired tn poverty Both 
countries were relieved to pjn company. 

This history should be kepi in mind as the 
Clinton administration contemplates militjry 
intervention. No doubt an international force 
spearheaded by marines w.nild make short 
W"rk of a Haitian army of 7.000 soldiers. Bui 
after the ihuggish generals now in charge are 
sent packing, the United States could find itself 
responsible for running Haiti for a long time. 

Awkward and demeaning it may be. but the 
administration should continue to try to iso- 
late H jiti’s illegal regime through multilater- 
al. non mil i tar. means while offering more 
succor t>> victims of repression.

N EW YORK —The genocide in Rwanda 
began on April 6. when extremist Hums 

IN began on April 6. when extremist Huius 
used the dpath of President Juvenal Hahyari- 
mana as a pretext For slaughtering members 
of the Tutsi minority. Five weeks and 2UG.UU0 
lives later, the killing goes on. 

Governments hesitate to eaJI the horror by 
its name, for that would oblige them to act. 
Signatories to the Convention for the Preven- 
tion of Genocide, including the United States, 
are legally bound to “prevent and punish it. 

Whether they call il genocide or not. gov- 
ernments around the world must pledge nev- 
er to aid a regime built on the bodies of 
200.000 unarmed civilians. 

In the pasL donor nations and the World 
Bank, have acted jointly in Rwanda, and t hey 
must act together now. with the United 
States leading the way. President Bill Clin- 
ton should begin by appealing for a firm, 
public declaration from the World Bank and 
from other heads of state. 

The statement would cost nothing and 
could do much to undermine the Rwandan 
extremists. Moderates exist in the military- 
and political structures, but they- have re- 

Bv Alison Des Forges 

mined quiet, panlv because they are intimi- 
dated bv the highly organized although less 
numerous extremists, partly because many of 
them expect to benefit if the extremists win. 

If they knew that the extremists were bound 
to fail — and any government in a counuy as 
poor as Rwanda must fail if refused all inter- 
national aid — they would begin to dissociate 
themselves from the extremists. 

The White House has called on Rwandan 
military leaders to do all in Lheir power to «bnd 
the slaughter, but it needs to do more. Public 
appeals should be made to the head of the 
radio station that broadcasts daily incite- 
ments to genocide, and ro the heads of the two 
parties that sponsor the murderous militia. 

Naming the names of people who can stop 
the killing mav not influence those with the 
bloodiest hands, but il would deter others 
who do not want this kind of notoriety. 

President Clinton should make a special 
appeal to President Francois Mitterrand of 
France, who was a staunch supporter of the 

Habyarimana government, to demand that 
the killing stop. 

Representatives of the sdf-prodaimed gov- 
ernment are making the rounds of foreign 
capitals seeking support. The United States 
and Belgium have denied their visa applica- 
tions. but France and Egypt have received 
them. The United States should tuge other 
governments to deny them admission and 
refuse them a hearing al the United Nations. 

Unfortunately, the situation cannot be 
turned around at so little cost. The United 
States needs to lake the lead in returning a 
significant United Nations force to Rwanda. 
These troops would go not to intervene be- 
tween the combatants but to save civilians 
from militia attack, starvation and disease. 
They wouid create safe havens for noncom- 
batants. and corridors to let supplies in and 
endangered civilians out 

Human rights monitors could take up posts 
in regions where civilians have been massa- 
cred. With such encouragement, Rwandans 
could return home to tend their crops, avoid- 
ing dependence on foreign food help. 

Of course, there is no guarantee that LHN

Q uins y North Korea Could Stumble Into a War It Doesn t Wi 


W ASHINGTON — Bill Clin- 
ton’s advisers believe that 

w ton’s advisers believe that 
North Korea will probably deal at 
the brink rather than defy the world 
over nuclear weapons. But that be- 
lief is dwindling, and serious consid- 
eration must now be given to how 
America would prepare for and fight 
a second Korean War. 

That is the mood I detected in 
recent conversations on Korea with 
three of the president's six most se- 
nior national security officials. Secre- 
tary of Defense William Perry •'aid 
that "within the next few weeks'* 
there will either be a serious negotia- 
tion under wav with North Korea “or 
we will be gouig off on the sanctions 
route" that North Korea says will 
constitute an act of war. 

From these conversations emerges 
a historical oddity on the scale of 
Richard Nixon going to China and 
Charles de Gaulle freeing Algeria. 
Senior U.S. policymakers fed that 
there is a better chance of resolving 
this crisis peacefully if Kim I! Sung. 
82 and reportedly ailing, remains 
alive and well in Pyongyang. 

The world's last Stalinist dictator is 

By Jim Hoagland

by promising the carrot of better rela- 
tions or the slick of economic sanc-

its nuclear ambitions. 

A turning point ia that effort ar- 
rived when North Korea announced 
that it would shut down its main 
nuclear power reactor sometime this 
month and start removing its spent 

Mr. Perrv outs it clearly and on the fuel rods without allowing meaning- 

record. a- i? his custom: 

“There could be a cataclysm if the 
regime lasht. out to preserve an em- 
bryonic dynasty. Even if the succes- 
sion problem is settled, the economic 
situation in North Korea is so deplor- 
able that there could be a popular 
revolt. The regime's control has been 
so complete that there is a general awe 
for Kim II Sung. In his absence there 
could well be an internal revolt." 

The Cl A told President Clinton 
last autumn that North Korea had 
probably reprocessed and hidden 
away enough plutonium during the 
Bush administration to manufacture 
one or two nuclear bombs. The presi- 
dent adopted a policy of containment 

ful international inspection of what 
will happen to those rods. 

As Mr. Perry noted, within the 
next few weeks’ it should be dear if 
North Korea has begun to stash away 
enough plutonium to build five or six 
new nuclear bombs in the next two 
years. That development would trig- 
ger an American push for a sanctions 
vote in the LIN Security Council. 

“And when that happens we will 
have to take seriously the risk of 
war.” Mr. Perry savs. “You cannot 
ignore the North Korean statement 
that they view invoking sanctions as 
equivalent to declaring war. If we go 
to sanctions, we have to go to in- 
creased readiness” to face a North 

Korean conventional attack on South 
Korea and the 37,000 American 
troops stationed there. 

Mr. Perry made dear that be has 
spent much of his first three months 
in office reviewing “very, very de- 
tailed contingency plans” for re- 
sponding to North Korean belliger- 
ency after sanctions are voted. One of 
his first steps would probably be to 
reduce the “tether” of U.S. aircraft 
carriers — the rime they need to be 
ready to leave port and head into 
action — from one week to 48 hours. 
At the same lime he would start des- 
ignating air squadrons to be ready to 
move to South Korea rat short notice. 

Further along he would increase 
the munitions and other supplies po- 
sitioned in South Korea and Japan. 
“That’s expensive, though,” he said. 
“You don't want to do that until you 
need iL” Only if war seemed immi- 
nent would he send another divirion 
of American troops into the theater. 
“Doing that in the early stages would 
seem to be a provocative action, to 
the North Koreans.” 

Another senior American official, 
voicing desperate optimism, gave 

this reason for hoping for a

The World Needs South Africans to Bring Off Their Exploit 

• -.-4 - 

P ARIS — The transfer of power from 
white ic> black in South Africa has taken 

1 white ic> black in South Africa has taken 
place with preternatural restraint and good- 
will. This may equally be taken as the heM of 
omens for the future, or as a moral summit 
from which there can only be descent. 

Certainly South Africa’ has the astounding 
good fortune to have seen the encounter of 
two great men. capable of negotiating the 
peaceful liquidation of a situation both un- 
just and unsustainable. 

F. W. de Klerk understood that the South 
Africa of apartheid and repression hud 
reached the end not onlv of its historical 

Bv William Pfaff 

singular courage to act upon this recognition. 
Now the deed is done, the nonracial de- 

rationale but of its political possibilities. In 
this respect he was like another man whose 

this respect he was like another man whose 
merits arc temporarily obscured but who will 
eventually be recognized as a major figure of 
his period. Mikhail Gorbachev, who in the 
1980s had the courage to act upon the evident 
truth that the Soviet system was intellectually 
and politically bankrupt, and that the Soviet 
Union could not go on as it was. 

President dc Klerk understood that this 
was equally true of South Africa, a democrat- 
ic white society superimposed upon a disen- 
franchised black society, bv whose labor the 
while society prospered. He. too. had the 

mocracy founded and ratified by the election 
to its presidency of another man of astound- 
ing qualities. Nelson Mandela, who emerged 
from 28 years of persecution and imprison- 
ment with a restraint, a forgiveness, a lack of 
vindictiveness and a political sensitivity that 
have few parallels in contemporary politics. 

He and Mr. de Klerk are men not only made 
for one another, but together made for the 
future of an Africa badly in need of wisdom 
and restraint, and — to use a vocabulary out of 
contemporary fashion — of spiritual virion. 

Not only South Africa is in their debt 
today. Mira itself, awakened from its an- 
cient history by European imperialism, its 
own social institutions and continuity de- 
stroyed by j colonialism that lasted for less 
lhan three generations, now is increasingly a 
devastated social terrain, desperately in need 
of a demonstration that its society can be 
reconstituted and can progress on a new ba- 
sis. with both racial justice and representa- 
tive political systems capable of defending 

individual rights. Can this example be pro- 
vided by the new South Africa? 

There are enormous obstacles. It may be a 
great mistake that South Africa has chosen a 
constitutional structure of centralized pow- 
er. Decentralization, a systematic federal- 
ism. could have not only defended tribal, 
racial and regional interests but provided a 
structural barrier to the tyranny of the ma- 
jority. which in the South .African case is 
obviously a serious danger to the future of 
democracy. On the other hand, it could have 
meant a crippling factionalism. 

Multiracialism is an admirable goal and 
convenient slogan, but in a country that 
throughout its history has defined individuals 
in terms of tribal or racial identity, multira- 
rialism is not a political and social condition 
that is going to be achieved in any simple way, 
even if goodwill is present and prevails. 

In the atmosphere of celebration and opti- 
mism surrounding the Mandela government’s 
installation this week, the darker possibilities 
in South Africa’s future have been pushed 
aside. The political unsophistication of the 
mass of its voters, the feats of its black tribal 
minorities as well as of the white and mixed- 
race populations, the possibilities of capital 

flight and accelerated emigration by while - ' 

managerial and professional classes are all ™ . . . 
serious threats to the future and to peace. : 

The same worries existed in 1979 in what ' “V' ' 
then was white-ruled Rhodesia and now fc . ^ - - ■ 
Zimbabwe. Events have proved them wrong “ - - 
there. But a good many other former colo- 
nies in Africa have suffered vast and sanpu-j ■ ri , 
nary tragedies, the complexities and scale' 
of which deter international intervention. ' 

Rwanda, Liberia, Somalia. Sudan, Angola r . 

are contemporary examples. ; ti . c . . •

Showdown in Yemen: Two Big Egos at War Over Power and Oft 

"fr- : 



N ICOSIA — Experts on Yemen 
sav the North-South battle is in 

i “ say the North-South battle is in 
essence a clash of two very large 
egos. Ali Abdullah Saleh and Ali 

By John K. Cooley 

Salem Baid appear willing to submit 
the 1 1 or 12 million Northerners and 

the 1 1 or 12 million Northerners and 
the 2 to 3 million Southerners to the 
full force of the various regular 
armed forces and tribal militias that 
each controls, for the sake of taking 
or keeping power. 

Mr. Baid. the Southern leader and 
vice president of erstwhile united Ye- 
men. was strong and lucky enough to 

survive purges of the ruling Yemen 
Socialist Party in the South's old 
“Cuban” days. Afier a bloodbath 
during iniemeeine quarrels in 1986 
that led to departure of the Soviets, 
he emerged as the party's chief. 

If. as appears. Ihese two men are 
determined lo fight to the last Yeme- 
ni- neither the .Arab League, the Link- 
ed Nations nor anyone else may be 
able to halt the carnage in southwest- 
ern Arabia. President Bill Clinton 

and other Western leaders are proba- 
bly well advised lo try nothing be- 
yond persistent but paceful media- 
tion. and the protection of their 
nationals and interests. 

Politics, oil and the personal egos 
of the contending leaders make it 
unlikely that either voluntary unity, 
as dreamed about and attempted tn 
the past, or unity imposed by force of 
arms in the future could ever work. 

Unity in 1990 was not forced. The 

A Post-Cold War Democracy Turned Mirage 

P ERTH. Australia — Old feuds 
between the rulers of a lone di- 
vided countrv. aggravated by Saudi 
suspicions of Western-style democra- 
cy. tie behind the outbreak of civil 
war in Yemen. With the fighting, pro- 
gress toward reconciliation and polit- 
ical unity has turned out to be lillle 
more lhan a desert mirage. 

Almost exactly a year ago. the for- 
mer Yemen stales had the first demo- 
cratic election on the Arabian Penin- 
sula. Under international guidance. 
Northerners and Southerners, for- 
mally united in T?90, elected a na- 
tional consultative assembly nf 301 
members, including women, chosen 
by vome 2.7 million voters, among 
them half j million women. Oil and 
tourism held out some promise of .1 
soundly based economic future. 

But recent history has conspired 
against a siahlc regime in Yemen. 

After the British left in the late 
1960s a Marxist regime founded the 
People’s Democratic Republic of 
South Yemen. With direct aid from 
the Soviet Union and East Germany, 
peace wao imposed on the tribes, land 
way collectivized and vast sums were 
spent by the new country's mentors 
on roads. Aden became a Soviet base 
bui lost it;, role as one of the busies! 
entrepot centers in the world. 

So South Yemen sank into ohscuri- 
dependent on foreign aid from the 
fcistera bloc, which trained the rnili-

lory and provided almost all the re- 
sources for a satellite 

SOurc ^i.‘ or * Communist 

state. The South fought two border 
wars with ihc conservative, anii- 
Communist North. Both countries 

underwent bloody changes of lead- 
ership. Prospects for unity seemed 
utterly remote. 

But the collapse of the Soviet 
Union forced South Yemen to look 
elsewhere for help. The North was 
chosen, partly because of a pressing 
need for each side lo agree on how 
bc-i to exploit oil reserves being dis- 
covered in areas claimed by both. The 
North and Lhe South also had a com- 
mon interest in resolving outstanding 
questions of frontier demarcation 
with ihe Saudis. 

In laic 1989 the border between the 
iwo Yemen* wax demilitarized, cur- 
reruies were made interchangeable, 
free enterprise was allowed in the 
socialist South and political parties in 
the North. The united Republic or 
Yemen was declared in May 1990. 
There was some opposition, mainly 
from religious groups demanding 
that Islam be the sole source of legis- 
lation. but this did not upset the uni- 
fication process. 

The main impediment arose from 
the Gulf War and Yemen’s reluc- 
tance to side with Kuwait. Saudi Ara- 
bia. the United States and their allies 
against Iraq. As a result, the Saudis 
expelled Yemeni guest workers en 
masse, cutting Yemen's foreign ex- 
change earnings, increasing unem- 
ployment and displaying the ill will 
of an influential neighbor. 

In the meantime. Yemeni politics 
coalesced but failed lo produce a base 
for future stability. Alt Abdullah Sa- 

emerged as the leading party in the 
1993 elections, and Colonel Saleh 
became the country’s president. 

The South's Yemen Socialist Par- 
ly came in second, and its leader, Ali 
Salem Baid. became vice president. 
Militant Islamic fundamentalists, re- 
presenting conservative tribal inter- 
ests and backed by Saudi money, 
were in third place.' It was an align- 
ment of political forces that led to 
the present disaster. 

As president. Colonel Saleh at- 
tempted to form a coalition with the 
Yemen Socialist Party. Bui the South 
suspected that he was intent on tak- 
ing over Lhe whole country. Vux 
President Baid favored a loose feder- 
al structure, principally to protect the 
South's increasing oil reserves. 

Relations deteriorated rapidly in 
recent months. The vice president re- 
tired in anger to Aden and refused to 
cooperate with the president in San’a. 
The armies of the North and South 
remained separate entities. Despite 
at tempts by Oman and Jordan to 

governments and the ruling parties in 
North and South had long paid it lip 
service in charters, constitutions and 
rhetorical proclamations. 

Oil first held out the prospect of a 
better life for the most impoverished 
of the Arab peoples in 1984. Signifi- 
cant reserves discovered in the 
North’s Ma'rib region, near the bor- 
der with Saudi Arabia and South 
Yemen, have been slowly but pro- 
gressively developed. 

Todays production, by Western 
companies like Hunt Oil and Cana- 
dian Occidental, has reached a mod- 
est 350,000 barrels a day. There are 
far greater reserves, h appears, of 
natural gas. Enron, a U.S. firm, and 
a U.S.-South Korean consortium of 
Hunt. Exxon and Yukong are espe- 
cially interested in gas. 

Soviet firms had exclusive oil ex- 
ploration rights to the Shabwah area 
of central Yemen, After unification 
of North and South in 1990, it was 
divided into concessions to major 
companies like BP. Chevron and 
Shell, plus independents. Drilling has 
been slow to bring results, and some 

companies have moved eastward, 
deeper into South Yemen territory." : 

Like Mr. Baid. the oil minister d 
tbe unified government. Saleh Abu 
Bakr Husaymm. is a native of South 
Yemen who has shown himself . anx- 
ious 10 keep the South's energy riches 
out of Northern hands. Perhaps for 
this reason, President Said) disr 
missed him soon after fighting begao 
with air and missile strikes 00 Sort 
and Aden last Thursday.

ing oil installations in Yemen’s previ- 
ous civil conflicts, but this time cwf

absurd to suggest that such countries 
will not do what they wish to do even in 
the absence of such “precedents." 

To avoid a bad precedent, does Mr. 
Oimon want to allow the Serbs to com- 
plete their “ethnic cleansing” of Bosnian 
Muslims? Which precedent is likely to be 
more dangerous: international indiffer- 
ence to the destruction of a UN member 
slate, or violation of a UN embargo for 
the most compelling of humanitarian and 
strategic reasons? Such thinking exposes 
the administration's lack of a political 
and moral compass in foreign policy. 

Mr. Clinton misreads American opin- 
ion on Bosnia as completely as be has 
misread America’s stake in the outcome 
of this war. There is never an over- 
whelming public outcry for American 
entry into a war abroad! Public opinion 
was opposed even to America's entry 
mlo World War II; it took President 
Roosevelt’s leadership to get ihe Ameri- 
can people behind a U.S. aMe in that 
war. But having seen the gruesome re- 
sults of Serbian atrocities on their televi- 
sion screens, Americans today are about 
as prepared for military intervention 
abroad as any American public has ever 
teen- Clear and courageous leadership 
by the president is all that is needed lo 
mobilize that potential support.

Mr. Clinton has abdicated his role to the 

military. That situation should scare the 
American people half to death. Ameri- 
can generals are no doubt dedicated, 
courageous and patriotic, but the formu- 
lation of policy is tile responsibility of 
the president and his secretary of state. 

In Bosnia, America should use air 
power in a punishing manner, hitting all 
direct and indirect major Serbian tar- 
gets, including targets in Serbia itself. 
And the United States and its allies 
should undertake a massive supplying or 
arms to Bosnia’s Muslims.

it the other day when, after showing 
slides of the 400-year-old Mosiar Bridge 
ratiing m chunks, he quoted ihe reaction 
of a Croatian journalist. 

Why do we feel more pain looking at 

the image or the destroyed bridge than 
the unage of the massacred people?" 
wrote Ksenija Drakulic. who is based in 
Zagreb. "Perhaps because we see our 
own mortality in the collapse of the 
bndge ... We expect people to die; we 
count on our own lives to end. The 
destruction of a monument to rivUiza- 
uon is something else. The bridge, in all 
its beauty and grace, was built to outlive 
us; it was an attempt to grasp eternity. It 
transcended our individual destiny * 
What options are there for the p'roieo- 
lors of important cultural monuments, 
like Mostar or the shelled city of Du- 
brovnik? The United States is expected 
this month to sign, finally, the 40-year- 
old Hague Convention on the Protection 
of Cultural Property in Wartime, which 
maps out the responsibilities of attack- 
ing commanders to be aware of safe- 
guarded sites and to avoid unnecessary 
cultural destruction. Meanwhile, a 
under UN auspices is weighing whether 
the destruction of Dubrovnik in Croatia 
can be prosecuted as a war crime. 

Both strategies have severe Hmi rations. 
Dubrovnik was destroyed before the eyes 
of two specially dispatched Unesco and 

gues, recreating roe buildin 
knowledge that an invadinj

Regarding “ The Woman Behind the 
Athenian" (Meanwhile. May 4): 

How unfortunate that John New- 
house chose to resurrect from its well- 
earned oblivion the bourgeois relation- 
ship of Aspasia and Pericles. Bv doing 
so, he inevitably got himself hopelessly 
enmeshed in a web of historical inaccu- 
racies and omissions. 

To begin with, there is no doubt or 

mystery of how Pericles died. He per- 
ished in 429 B.C. during the great 
plague in Athens brought about by his 
own fatal policy during the Peloponne- 
sian War of abandoning the fertile 
plain of Attica to the Spartans and 
ordering everyone behind the Great 
Walls without securing sufficient provi- 
sions nor applying hygienic precautions. 

He was never the self-assured “Olym- 
pian" described by Mr. Newhouse. He 
was irresolute arid relied heavily on 
scheming Aspasia. He made war against 
Samos at her instigation. It is also 
doubtful Pericles ever delivered his fam- 
ous funeral oration, mostly historic fal- 
sification by faithful Thucydides. 

His relentless imperial policy proved 
the basic cause of the Peloponnesian 
War. which ultimately brought Athens 
to its knees. His ruthless conquest of 

birth (494 B.C.) will be celebrated in 
2006. not in 1994. But I certainly don’t 
mind the error Without it, my pleasure at 
reading John Newhouse’s delicious arti- 
cle would have been delayed by 12 years.

the United States needs now. a new federal 
report says, is an infusion of up to S 125 million a 
year to carrv out a plan to provide the vigilance 
and rapid response needed to contain infections. 

The single most important weapon in any 
country’s defense against infections is its dis- 
ease surveillance system. Surveillance is used to 
characterize disease patterns by lime, place and 
person, to detect epidemics, to evaluate preven- 
tion and control programs and project future 
health care needs. 

“Whatever shape health care reform takes in 
this country, surveillance will be the key to the 
meaningful evaluation of new programs." said 
the federal report, from the Centers for Disease 
Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

HE sudden, unexpected appearance 
of AIDS shocked health officials into a 
belated recognition of the need for im- 
proved surveillance and on awareness 
that such vigilance might serve as an early warn- 
ing system to prevent new- and emerging infec- 
tions from becoming public health disasters. But 
the report said. “The ability to detect what is new 
or emerging depends on ihe capacity to identify 
and track the routine as well as the unusual." 

Successful surveillance hinges on the accura- 
cy of statistical analyses, and they hinge on the 
accuracy of reports that doctors and hospitals 
are supposed (o mail to local health depart- 
ments about specified infections. But many 
diseases are notoriously underreported in the 
United SiaLes. Surveillance also relies on an 
effective laboratory system. Microbiologists 
can be the first to' detect genetic changes in 
organisms that could signal an impending out- 
break of antibiotic-resistant infections. 

Microbiologists can also be the first to detect 
known diseases that have spread to new geo- 
graphic areas and populations. Laboratories 
can be vital for the early detection of exotic 
microbial agents that might be used for biologi- 
cal warfare or terrorist activities. 

Surprisingly, the report said, no federal re- 
sources are provided to state and local health 
departments u> support the national disease re- 
porting system. And other parts of surveillance 
systems have been weakened by budget cuts. 

.Although widespread misuse of antibiotic 
drugs has led to the emergence of resistant bacte-

quaie to confront the present and future chal- 
lenges. Twelve states have no monitoring system 
at all for surveying food borne or waterborne 
diseases, the report said. 

One of the most astonishing discoveries in 
recent years is that a bacterium. Helicobacter 
pylori, can cause ulcers and other stomach 
ailments including possibly some forms of 
stomach cancer. Last February, the bacterium's 

causative role for ulcers was given widespread 
acceptance by a government-appointed panel 
of experts that made antibiotics a required 
component of ulcer treatment. 

Few had suspected that ulcers were caused by 
an infection. But H_ pylori tums out to be just 
one of a small hut growing list of microbes that 
have been found to produce what had previously 
been classified as noninfectioas diseases. 

EW YORK — The small boost to the 
immune system offered by a pleasant 
event can persist as long as two days. 
■ Vi while the negative effects of a stress- 
ful encounter mainly take their toll on one day. 
according to new findings. * 

And while stresses like a conflict at work 
can make people more vulnerable to infectious 
disease, so can missing customary pleasures 
like getting together with friends, the studies 
show. The findings add to the growing evi- 
dence for the health consequences of day-to- 
day events. 

“Positive events of the day seem to have a 
stronger helpful impact on immune function 
than upsetting events do a negative one." said 
Dr. Arthur Stone, a psychologist at the medical 
school of the State University of New York at 
Stony Brook, who did much of the research. 

In a study of 100 men tracked daily for three 
months. Dr. Stone found that stresses' like being 
criticized at work weakened immune function 
on the day they occurred. 

But events tike a pleasant family celebration 
or having friends over enhanced the immune 
system for the next two days. The findings will 
be published in Health Psychology later this 

“Having a good time on Monday still had a 
positive effect on the immune system by 
Wednesday” Dr. Stone said. “Bui the negative 
immune effect from undesirable events on 
Monday lasts just for that day.” 

Because the study involved only ordinary 
pleasures and stresses, the results may not ap- 
ply when life becomes extremely stressful. 

Earh evening during the study, volunteers 
filled out an evaluation of the ups and downs of 
their day. Daily samplings of thdr saliva al-

their immun e systems were in producing anti- 
bodies to a rabbit protein they took in capsule 
form each day. 

Their rate of antibody activity “offers an 
analogue o! how the body reacts to a pathogen 
such as a cold virus," Dr. Stone said. 

Among the men in the study, the biggest 
setback to immune function was caused by 
work problems from criticism by one’s boss and 
frustrating or irritating encounters with fellow- 
employees. and by feeling pressured by loom- 
ing deadlines or a heavy workload. 

Another source of Irritation leading to low- 
ered immune function was chores like irksome 
errands or annoying home maintenance tasks. 

The greatest improvement of the men's im-

jogging. The range of stress measured was simi-

code Tor differentiating the location of these 

For example, if a sound comes from. say. 10 
feet (3 meters) to the left of a person’s head, the 
cell will fire its signals in one pattern. “It might 
go dit. diL ditty, dil," Dr. Middlebrooks said. 

Bui if ihe sound originates from a different 
point in space, the cell fires another pattern, he 
said, perhaps “ditty dittv dil.” .All sounds from 
all locations can be coded in this way by these 
cells, he said. 

“It’s remarkable to show ihai a single neuron 
can encode sounds from every direction in 
space.” said Dr. Eric Knudson. a professor of 
neurobiology at Stanford University medical 
school. It means that these auditory cells oper- 
ate according to rules that are different from 
those governing other brain cells. 

UT the finding does not solve the 
question of how humans localize 
sounds. Dr. Knudson said. Although 
these cells produce a code, he said, it 
is not dear how or if the brain uses the signals 
in sensory processes. 

The brain contains internal “maps” or repre- 
sentations of space that help people understand 
the world. Dr. Knudson said. Each sensory- 
system has specialized neurons that help create 
these maps, which are constantly being acted 
upon and re-created as humans react' to the 
external world.

Testosterone Protects 
Heart, Study Finds - 

New York Times Service 

EW YORK — A new finding by 
researchers in New York City chal- 
lenges the long-held belief that the 
male sex hormone, testosterone, is 
important in causing heart attacks in men. 

Rather, the researchers conclude, testoster- 
one may help protea men against heart at- 
tacks, which are the leading cause of death in 
the United States and many other countries. 

The study found a strong correlation be- 
tween low amounts of testosterone and the 
degree of coronary artery disease, whidi un- 
derlies most heart attacks. 

When coronary arteries become clogged 
with fatty material less blood can flow 
through them to nourish the heart, and chest 
pains from angina often develop. If a blood 
cloL forms, it can suddenly shut off blood 
flow, producing a heart attack and killing 
vital heart muscle. 

Although it has been known that as men 
age the amount of testosterone declines and 
the incidence of heart attacks increases, the 
study is the first to correlate testosterone with 
the degree of coronary artery disease, the 
researchers reported in Arteriosclerosis and 
Thrombosis, a journal published by the 
American Heart Association. 

Dr. Gerald S. Phillips of Roosevek-St. 
Luke's Hospital in Manhattan, the chief au- 
thor, said his team did not know predsdy 
how low levels of testosterone might lead to a 
heart attack or normal amounts might pro- 
tect against one. 

Two other small studies have found tte 
administration of Testosterone has deaasl 
risk factors for heart attacks. 

But in an interview Dr. Phillips cited-* 
reasons why it would be premature to ns*' 
mend testosterone therapy to prevent’ 
attacks. First the findings of nis own i 
need to be confirmed. Second, the safety 
effectiveness of testosterone therapy ifl pfcj 
venting heart attacks has not beai deft- 
mined in large studies. 

In Dr. Phillips's study, amounts of -tB»: 
terone correlated with high density apopro- 
tein. the so-called good fonn of chotetnd 
suggesting that the hormone might proW 
against atherosclerosis through an effect* 
lipoproteins. ■; 

But the study did not find a condati® 
between low amounts of testosterone and 
other known risk factors for heart atuefa. 
like high blood pressure, smoking 
amounts of cholesterol, glucose, insulinaai 
factor 7 (which is involved in theformationrf 
blood dots) in the blood. t'- 

other scientists have found a comdaiffli 
between abdominal fat and heart attacks. Dt- 
Phiilips's team did not measure the dumb*- 
tion of body fat in the participants..' ‘ 
Although the study did not prove that !?*

\urk Time\ St-n-i.f 

EW YORK — The waisr> of the 
Atlantic Ocean deep below the 
courae of Christopher Columbus's 
IC— * 149Z voyage have warmed by nearly 

■ it ix- tenths or a degree Fahrenheit (about a third 
n of a degree centigrade i in the Iasi 35 vears. 
n oceanographers have discovered, a finding that 
■jpas important implications for the sludv of 

global climate change. 

■ The oceans are a critical pari of the climate 
\vstem because they absorb, store, move and 

eventually release heat, the svs tern's main driv- 
ing force. 

Mathematical models of the system predict 
that sea-surface temperatures should rise by 3 
degrees to 7 degrees Fahrenheit, many scien- 
tists expect, as atmospheric concentrations of 
carbon dioxide double in the next 100 years. 
The gas. which traps heal in the atmosphere, is 
produced by the burning of fossil fuels tike coal, 
oil and natural 

The magnitude of the ocean warming detected 
by the new observations is “broadly consistent - 
with model predictions of ocean w-armina for a 
doubling of carbon dioxide, the oceanographers 
say in an article in the the British journal Nature. 

But the researchers found that the greatest 
warming has taken place not at the surface, as 
the models predict, but rather ai depth*, of half 
a mile to 1.6 miles (.8 to 2.5 kilometers). 

This wanning in the deep ocean is “surpri sing- 
ly large: it surprised us. anyway “ said Dr. Harry 
Bryden, one of the researchers. Dr. Bryden is "a 
physical oceanographer at the James Rennell 
Colter for Ocean Circulation, a British research 
institution at Southampton. 

Equally surprising. Dr. Bryden said, the 
warming was remarkably uniform across the 
entire Atlantic basin along the latitude of 24 
degrees north, the latitude of the Bahamas and 
roughly that of Columbus's first voyage. 

Diet Drug May Harm Brain 

NEW YORK (NYT) — A widely used diet 
drug may cause lasting and possibly harmful 
changes in parts of the brain that regulate 
appetite and mood, according to a report on 
studies in monkeys published this week. 

The drug, dexfen flu murine, is widely used in 
Europe. Although not yet approved for use on 
its own in Lhe United Suites, u is found in a SO- 
SO combination with Icvofenfluramine in its 
sister drug, fenfluramine, which is marketed in 
the United Stales as Pondimin. 

The nerves found damaged by dexTenflura- 
mine play “a role in regulating mood, appetite, 
sleep, impulse control, sexual activity, aggres- 

sion and some hormone action." said one of the 
researchers. Dr. George Ricaurte, an assistan t 
professor of neurology at Johns Hopkins Medi- 
cal Institutions in Baltimore. 

in a study in which high doses of dexfenflur- 
amine were given to squirrel monkeys for four

Wiring Russia With the West’s Aid 

Phone Firms See Big Challenges, Big Profit Potential 

By Richard W. Stevenson 

Aten- York Tima Semce 

MOSCOW — Boris Y. Nemtsov, the gov- 

ernor of Ow Nizhny Novgorod region 400 
miles) east of here, intro- 

kilometers (250 iW _ 

duced a novel program recently: selling, for 
up to $450, certificates that promise purchas- 
ers they wU] get telephones installed in their 
homes within six months instead of the years 
they would normally wait Officials said' resi- 
dems were snapping up the certificates. 

The money raised will be spent improving 
the region's decrepit telephone system. By 
paying interest at 1 percent a day for any 
delay beyond six months, the plan provides 
considerable incentive for the local telephone 
company to speed its work. 

Though the method maybe unorthodox and 
the scale relatively small, the plan indicates the 
huge demand for improved communications 
in a country where getting a Hint tone can be a 
triumph of will, and of the lengths Russia is 
going to address the problem. 

If there is a consensus within Russia on 
anything, it is that the telephone system must 
be upgraded, to provide Russians with great- 
er access to service and to make it possible lor 
business to be conducted more easily with the 
rest of the world and within a country that 
spans 11 time zones. 

“It’s hard to speak seriously of economic 
and business development, in Russia without 
the development of modem telecommunica- 
tions systems,” said Dmitri B. Garamov. the 
director general of Westdcom. which oper- 
ates the nation’s main international tele- 
phone service. 

Modernizing the telecommunications sys- 

tem is so high a priority that it is one of the few 
bus in esses in which the Russian government 
local and regional authorities and the domestic 
industry have all made a determined effort to 
welcome foreign investors such as U S West 
Inc. and AT&T Cop. — or at least the cash, 
technology and operating skills they bring. 

“It’s next to impossible to develop a high- 
quality telecommunications infrastructure 

It's next to impossible 
to develop a high-quality 
infrastructure without 
Western investment. 9 

Vyacheslav F. Gorkin, a former 
deputy communications 
minister . 

without Western investment,” said Vyaches- 
lav F. Gurkin. a former deputy communica- 
tions minister who now runs Moscow Cellu- 
lar Communications, a venture with US 
West, the regional telephone company based 
in Denver. 

Indeed, U S West and other foreign com- 
panies have established sizable operations 
here, and they are cautiously optimistic the 
upgrading of the national and local phone 
systems win prove to be a buge business 

“In a place this size, communications in the 

long run is going to be a big deal,” said Viktor 
V. Pavlenko, president of U S West Interna- 
tional’s division in Russia. 

Right now, however, communications in 
Russia is a big headache. By various counts, 
Russia has 1 1 to 15 phone lines for every 100 
people. In Spain there are 35 lines for 100 
people, and in the United States, 70 lines for 
100 people. 

In Moscow and St- Petersburg, callers can 
usually count on getting a dial tone, but not 
much more. Calis are often noi completed, or 
are plagued by static or abruptly cut off. In 
outlying areas, service is much worse. 

The centerpiece of the nation’s telecom- 
munications strategy now is a multibillion- 
dollar plan, in which U S West will play a key 
role, to install 50,000 kilometers of intercity 
long-distance lines and 50 switching centers 
across the country. After a number dfits and 
False starts, there is optimism that the plan — 
the biggest telecommunications project on 
the boards anywhere — will come to fruition, 

wiring the country reliably for the first time. 

For foreign companies seeking business 
here, an even bigger prize Iks just over the 
horizon: the tens of billions of dollars — some 
estimates run as high as SI 20 billion — that it 
would take over several decades to add 20 
milli on or more local tines and bring Russia’s 
phone service up to the levd of. say. Spain’s. 

While Russian and Western executives 
here said they were hopeful about the oppor- 
tunities, the prospects for the modernization

By Lawrence Malkin 

Iniemtuioruf Herald Tribune 
NEW YORK — F inan cial mar- 
kets waited nervously Wednesday 
for the Federal Reserve Board to 
drop the other shoe and raise inter- 
est rates after the Bundesbank low- 
ered them. Wall Street wants to 
bear a powerful message; perhaps 
stronger than the Fed itself w ants 
to send. 

But without a message from 
Washington before the Federal 
Open Market Committee votes 
Tuesday on interest-rate policy, the 
dollar first jumped almost a pfen- 
nig against the Deutsche mark and 
then slumped back. 

The volatile government bond 
market barely moved, but then 
came under pressure after the Trea- 
sury’s auction of 10-year notes met 
with a weak reception from inves- 
tors worried about rising long-term 
interest rates. 

The dollar finished in New York 
at 1.6683 DM, down from 1.6725 
Tuesday. It also M to 104.250 yen. 
down from 104.415; to 1.4250 
Swiss francs from 1.4329; and to 
5.7210 French francs from 5.7305. 
The pound strengthened to $ 1.4965 
from $1.4887. 

Financial markets were buffeted 
Tuesday by rumors that the 
Bundesbank and the Fed had a 
deal to move interest rates in tan- 

dem, with the federal funds and 
discount rates each going up by 
half a percentage point to match a 
similar German cut But when the 
Fed made no rate adjustment an- 
nouncement by midday in New 
York, its usual time of activity, the 
dollar had lost its overseas guns. 

In Washington, Treasury Secre- 
tary Lloyd Bentsen said he wel- 
comed the Bundesbank’s rate cut. 
He reiterated that the U-S. govern- 
ment did not favor a weaker dollar 
and said Tor the present, our inter- 
vention has succeeded.” He point- 
ed out that since May 4, when half 
a dozen central banks threw an 
estimated S3 billion into the mar- 
kets, the dollar bad risen convinc- 

ingly against the mark and the yen. 

Officials did not rule out another 
intervention if necessary, but it was 
dear that the next move to support 
the dollar was up to the Fed in the 
form of higher interest rates. So 
what is the central bank waiting for? 

Fust and foremost, the Fed does 
not want to be perceived as being 
hustled by aggressive and bearish 
young bond traders who have grown 
up on high inflation and low growth

BRUSSELS — The European 
Union has reached a broad trade 
agreement with Russia that will sig- 
nificantly widen Moscow's access 
to the markets of its biggest trading 
partner, officials said Wednesday. 

The so-called partnership and 
cooperation agreement is one of the 
main elements in Western efforts to 
support economic reform in Rus- 
sia. It will offer the possibility of a 
free-trade pact with the Union 
sometime after 1997 if Russia 
mokes progress toward developing 
a market economy. It also calls for 
presidential meetings between the 
two sides twice a year. 

“The agreement is verv ambi- 
tious,” said a spokesman for Sir 
Leon Briuan, the EU trade com- 

Sir Leon sealed the accord after 
tentative compromises two key 
stumbling blocks — trade in urani- 
um and access for European banks 
to Russia's market — in telephone 
talks in the past two weeks with 
Alexander Sbokhin, the deputy 
prime minister and economics min- 
ister of Russia. Differences on 
those issues have blocked an agree- 
ment for six months. 

A spokesman for France's per- 
manent representation to the 
Union was guarded about the pad 
however, saying the uranium safe- 
guards were “very vague” and did 
not appear to be sufficient 

Officials of the European Com- 
mission. the Union's executive 
agency, briefed ambassadors on the 
accord on Wednesday and the 
Union’s foreign ministers were 
scheduled to review the deal at a 
meeting here Monday and Tues- 
day. The agreement must be rati- 

fied by the Russian parliament and 
the 12 Uni 

See DOLLAR, Page 12 

Union member states. 

The agreement would abolish 
EU quantitative restrictions on 
Russian exports of steel, textiles, 
cars, televisions and radios and 
vodka, while improving guarantees 
for Western investment in Russia. 

In 1992, the most recent full year 
for which statistics are available, 
the Union imported roughly 14.3 

+0 5f 

billion European currency - 
($17 billion) of goods from l_t__ 
mainly oil, natural gas, oihe +0 7f 
erals and metals. That rqwer^f 
□early half of Russia's expor — 
amounted to more than 20 '0-3 3 
U.S. imports from Russia am -o ^ B

The Union, which sells i_

ery to Russia, had a trade de' 4 . 0.54 
more than 3 billion Ecus it- —

Huntsman Buys and Bides His Time 



By Kathryn Jones 

New York Tima Serna 

S ALT LAKE CITY — When the going 
gets tough for industrial companies, 
Jon M. Huntsman bops in his jet antf 
goes hunting. Chemicals are ids game, 
and the Utah billionaire has buBt the largest 
privately hdd chemical business in the United 
States by snapping op promura properties at 
low prices when the industry goes into one of 
its periodic recessions and when big corpora- 
tions unload chemical assets. 

These days, be is taking aim at some huge 
tarsus. In late April, Mr. Huntsman, chair- 
man and chief executive of the Huntsman 
fre ^ |M «Tm iUmI the Ursest and perhaps nsta- 

Soriet Union with bis mentor, Armand Ham- 
mer, the late industrialist. 

Mr. Huntsman’s scrappiness and habit of 
watdnng every penny has deep roots. Born in 
Blackfoot, Idaho, in the heart of potato coun- 

try, Mr. Huntsman dug potatoes and did odd 
jobs to r 

help his father, a music teacher, and 
Ms m o th er make ends meet. 

Mr. Hantenan, who had harbored dreams 
of being an entrepreneur, in early life formed 

Oiiu wuwa — — - , 

, completed the largest and pertiaps — 

est deal of his life. He and Koijrgiito. one of

Australia’s richest men, paid $860 million for 
Texaco Inc’s worldwide petrochemwal opera- 
tions. The acquisition will almost fojU* 
size of his Tamfly business, to about $3.4 billion 

in annual revenue , , 

Last week, Mr. Huntsman *sc! osed that 
he was in talks to acquire at least part of the 
Sal operations of ^othcr Am«ican 
company, which be would «« /denuly.

The Utah billionaire has 
built the largest privately 
held chemical business 

in the United States. 

Gx, which makes a range of chemical prod- 
ucts and which is now a separate company 
called the Huntsman Corp„ wiJ] give Mr. 
Huntsman's chemical operations diversity 
and make it one of the largest suppliers of raw 
materials for products such as soaps, deter- 
gents, mouthwash and toothpaste. 

Yet analysts and even Mr. Huntsman say 
the latest industry downturn, which began in 
late 1989, has been deeper and longer than 
expected because so many companies built 
petrochemical plants in the 1980s. Dozens of 
companies have reshuffled or cut back chemi- 
cal operations. 

When the Texaco acquisition was an- 

nounced in September, some analysts ques- 

Ms own business that made plastic . 
mg, including containers for fast-food pi 
acts such as McDonald" s burgers. In 1970 he 
sold tha t company and started over, sowing 
the seeds of his current empire. 

Mr. Huntsman has since assembled his 
collection of companies by betting on turn- 
arounds and sticking out tough times. Once 

he even pledged his bouse as partial collateral 
to acquire the polystyrene plant of Shell Oil 
CoTThat 1982 acquisition started Huntsman 
Chemical Corp„ which makes raw materials 
for various plastics. 

A separate company, Hun tsman Packag- 
ing Corp M specializes in pa ck a ging and has 
bought businesses from Goodyear Use * 
Rubber Co, Mobil Cotp. and Hoechst Ce- 

lanese Corp. _ . . 

The recently acquired Texaco Chemical 

tioned whether Mr. Huntsman had paid too 
much too soon. 

Bui Mr. Huntsman’s timing may be on the 
money a g ain, analysts say. Mr. Huntsman 
said be noticed the first price increases on 
chemical products in March. Analysts said 
the industry has hit bottom and is on a “slow 
torn,” although they caution that it will take 
several years to make a turnaround. 

Jake Gam, the former Utah senator and 
vice chairman of Huntsman Co&, said Mr. 
Huntsman had an instinct fra* timing. “He 
sees the big picture, " Mr. Gam said. “He’s 
not one to say. ‘What’s the market today or 
tomorrow or even next year.’" 

Since the Huntsman companies are pri- 

vate, they do not disclose eamings. But ana- 
say Mr. 

lysis say Mr. Huntsman has a good record of 
tuming aroond unprofitable operations such 
as the Texaco umL His typical strategy is to 
cut redundant administrative costs, close in- 
efficient plants and fine-tune operations so 
that plants run more efficiently. 

GiUe Leaves Credit Lyonnais 

By Alan Friedman 

International Herald Tnbime 

PARIS — Francois Gffle, the managing director of 
Credit Lyonnais who is being investigated for the 
bank's role in a Swiss bankruptcy, resigned unexpect- 
edly on Wednesday. 

Mr. GOie, 58, who was accused by a Swiss judge in 
February with complicity in the bankruptcy of Sasea, 
a Swiss company that received loans from the French 
bank, resigned “with immediate effect,” according to 
Crhdit Lyonnais. 

Sasea. together with Giancario PaireUi. the contro- 
versial Italian financier, ran a web of companies that 
were backed by a total of S 1 billion of Credit Lyonnais 
loans to buy Me tro-Gold wvn-Mayer Inc. in 1990. 

Mr. Gillc was charged by Judge Jean-Louis Cro- 
chet a Geneva magistrate who is investigating the 
1992 bankruptcy of Sasea. Also charged in February 
was Jean -Yves Haberer, who was removed as chair- 
man of Credit Lyonnais last November and then fired 
by the French government on March 30 from his new 
job as head of the much smaller Credit National. 

Edmond Alphandery, the economics minister of 
France, said at the time of Mr. Haberer’s dismissal 
from Credit National that there would be a special 
inquiry into how Credit Lyonnais had been managed 
under "Mr. Haberer. but that the inquiry would not be 
in public. Credit Lyonnais posted a loss of 6.9 billion 
French francs <$ I billion) fast year. 

In an apparent reference to the MGM affair. Jean 
Peyrelevade, the new Credit Lyonnais chairman, look 
pains Wednesday to thank Mr. GiDe for not hesitating 
“to sacrifice his comfort and his personal interest to 
take charge of a whole series of extremely difficult 
matters, the origin of which he was extraneous to.” 

The bank said in a statement that Mr. Gille was 
“carrying out the intention he had already expressed 
on several occasions of devoting himself to new activi- 
ties outside the group, once ibe work on financial 
restructuring allowed this.” 

Credit Lyonnais also announced that Mr. GiUe 
would continue to work for the bank over the next few 
months in order to provide a smooth transition. His 
responsibilities for general finance, capital markets, 
project financing, administration, and human re- 
sources will be given to I wo members of the bunk"? 
executive committee. These will be Pascal Lamy. the 
former cabinet chief of Jacques Delors, president of 
the European Commission, and Dominique Bazy. an- 
other Credit Lyonnais executive. 

“I wish to insist (his is my decision, it is one I 
discussed with Jean Peyrelevade several months ago. 
and we felt it was good for me to remain a member of 
the (earn up to the end of the work on the plan for 
financial restructuring.” Mr. Gille said in an interview. 
“I am now free to go. It was planned that today would 
be the D-Day." 

Mr. GiUe stud the bank had asked him to continue 
to follow matters involving MGM. Mr. ParreuL and 
Sasea. Credit Lyonnais now owns 100 percent of the 
troubled Hollywood studio, and is hoping to sell it in 
the next couple of years. 

Mr. Gille said he would remain a board member at 
MGM, as well as at Crediio Beramasco. a retail bank 
subsidiary in Northern Italy. The bank said be also 
would continue as chairman of the supervisory board 
of BfG Bank AG. the Frankfurt-based Credit Lyon- 
nais subskfiaiy- 

Mr. Gille. a graduate of the National School of 
Administration, joined Credit Lyonnais in 1975. HU 
resignation comes nearly two months after the bank 
unveiled an ambitious 50 billion franc restructuring 
plan aimed at restoring it to health so it can be 
privatized within two years. 

The restructuring calls for a transfer of 40 billion 
francs of dubious and nonperf orating real estate loans 
to a company that will be managed by Credit Lyon- 
nais and guaranteed by the state.

would take an after-tax cWg s 
of $60 million against first ^ 

quarter eamings because of de Jj 

nvahves contracts it enlem o

York Corp. 

The company, which make: 
and sells industrial gases, en ^ 
tered into five interest-ratt o 
swap contracts with Banker: *- 
Trust late last year. The swap: a 
were bets that U.S. and Eun> ® 
pean interest rates would re- ^ 
main stable and were lever- 
aged, meaning that profits or_ 
losses could quickly multiply. 

The swaps were “unaccept- 
able and inconsistent with our 
traditional conservative ap- 
proach to managing our debt 
portfolio," said H. A. Wagner, 
the chairman of Air Products.

NAIROBI — Shareholders of 
the African Development Bank in- 
sisted Wednesday ihat the bank 
undertake fundamental reforms 
before they inject more money. 

“We want major commitments 
before we agree to an increase in 
the share capital.” said Jeffrey 
Shafer, a U.S. Treasury; official, a't 
the bank's annual meeting. 

Alvaro Teles of the private Por- 
tuguese Association for Develop- 
ment and Cooperation, a share- 
holder, said the bank needed 
“belter governance. 1 ’ 

The bank, which has headquar- 
ters in Abidjan, Kory Coast, is 
seeking to raise it* share capital of 
S22.3 billion by $2.5 billion. 

The pressure for reforms has been 
fueled by a report saying the bank 
has become too bureaucratic, places 
too much emphasis on quantity of 
its loans instead of quality and lacks 
proper means of assessing the viabil- 
ity of projects it finances. 

" Babacar Ndiaye. the bank presi- 
dent, said that the report “calls for 
a fundamental restructuring of the 
bank, its policies, procedures anJ

Blacftitvr* Business Newi 

TURIN — Fat SpA has sold nearly 200.000 
Pumas since November, raising hopes that its new 
small car can do for the Italian automaker what the 
Taurus did for Ford 10 years ago — reverse its 
losses and improve its reputation for quality. 

Rat is in need of a turnaround. On Thursday, 
Italy’s largest private industrial company is to 
announce a 1993 net loss that the company esti- 
mated in January at about 1.8 trillion lire ($1 

Fiat may break even this year, thanks only lo the 
sale of an insurance company and other corporate 
assets unrelated to its automotive business. Ana- 
lysts said the company cannot become profitable 
unless sales outside Italy drastically increase and 
US Alfa Romeo and Lancia divisions show the 
same signs of life as Fiat. 

Equally important is whether Fiat, in producing 
UterunlQ. went as far as Ford Motor Co. did in the 
United Stales to revamp itself — improving quali- 
ty control, soliciting worker suggestions, slashing 
the number of suppliers and adopting just-in-time 

. t **Thc Punto has given them breathing space, but 
it’s still not certain Fiat will survive the next 
downturn in tbe car market,” said William Cowan, 
an analyst at James Cupel & Co. 

The 1993 loss is not out of line with that of oiher 
carmakers hurt by last year's 15 percent drop in 
European car sales. But Fiat’s market share in 
Europe has fallen to 1 1 percent last vear from 16 
percent in 1989. 

Where it once rivaled Volkswagen AG as Eu- 
rope's largest carmaker, it now trails VW. Adam 
Opel AG, Peugeot SA and FonJ-Werke AG. 

Rat has only a 3.6 percent share in Germany, a 
2J percent share in Britain, and a 5 2 percent share 
in France, Europe's largest markets alongside Ita- 
ly. Those figures are far from the 6 percent to 8 

percent most large carmakers aim for in their 
nondomestic markets. 

"They could make inroads outside of Italy, but it 
will be very difficult,'' said Nigd Griffiths, an 
analyst at DRl/McGraw HiU in London. “The 
competition in their specialty, the small car sector, 
will only get tougher.” 

In Italy, which accounts for two-thirds of Fiat's 
European sales, the company's market share has 
Slipped lo 45 5 percent from 60 percent in 1989. 
That slide ended late last year with ibe arrival erf 
the Punto, but Fiat's hold on its home market faces 
competition from Japanese carmakers, who until 
1991 were given a quota of only 2 percent. Under 
new European Union rules, however, the quota has 
been loosened and must disappear altogether by 
1999. Already this year. Japanese market share in 
Italy has grown to 4.6 percent from 3.7 percent a 
year ago. 

The Punto has reinforced Fiat's reputation as a 
crafty engineer and designer of small cars, winning 
glowing reviews for its handling, equipment, and 
to a lesser extent, quality. 

But it replaces tbe Una which accounted for 
one-third of Fiat group sales during the post 10 
years and which at its peak sold 700.000 units a 
year. Thus if the Punto fails to reach 600.000 sales 
a year, the car wiiJ have been a failure, even if (be 
figure dwarfs most models' sales, analysts said. 

Fiat executives themselves have described the 
Punto as the company's turnaround vehicle.

it is very important,” said Paolo Camarella, the 
chairman of Fiat Auto, the company’s car division. 

Tbe Punto may not be a runaway winner, but 
Christopher Will of Lehman Brothers in London 
said it marked a turnaround for the company. 
“There’s a big change in emphasis on design at 
Fiat,” said. "'The cars of the 1 980s were produced by 
businessmen and accountants. Cantarella is a car 
nut and he understands style and drivers' enthusi- 
asm. and you're seeing that in their new care.” 

To Drain 
Wine Lake 

C capital hr Our Suff Fnm Dupakha 

BRUSSELS — The European 
Commission on Wednesday pro- 
posed measures to drain the so- 
called wine lake of overproduction 
by eliminating some subsidies to 
European wine makers. 

Tbe European Union is deluged 
with 35 million hectoliters (91 mil- 
lion gallons) of surplus wine. Pro- 
duction is rising every year, while 

consumption is falling. 

“We nave to spend a lot of mon- 
ey to get rid of surpluses," said 
Rene Stdchen, the Union agricul- 
ture commissioner. “We have to act 

quickly to achieve a proper balance 
between consumption and produc- 

He proposed measures that he 
said would encourage growers to 
produce less but beuer-quidity wine. 

The plan allows wine-producing 
countries to choose from a list of 
options /or cutting overproduction, 
ranging from paying farmers to 
produce less wine or cut back their 
vineyards to distilling wine into al- 
cohol for industrial use. 

Mr. Steichen said his proposal 
would cut average annual wine pro- 
duction to a manageable level for 
normal consumption. 

Countries that exceed produc- 
tion limits under the new plan 
would have to distil) thdr extra 
wine. Those that do not respect the 

d action caps would lose the EU 
ing they get for wine reform. 
Tbe EU spent nearly $2 billion 
last year to support the trine mar-

Com Chips: Will British Munch a Bunch? 

IN Bill 

By Richard W. Stevenson 

.VrH' York Times Serrice 

LONDON — They eat all kinds of strange 
snack foods on these shores, including the 
prawn-flavored crisp —an acquired taste, to be 

Bui they have not acquired a taste here for 
that American staple, the corn chip, a failing 
that Pepsico Inc. is now out to remedy. 

Pepsi, the owner of American snack-maker 
Frilo-Lay Inc., officially introduced Doritos 
corn tortilla chips to Britain on Wednesday. It 
is spending $9 million on advertising and pro- 
motion to do so. more than half of it on a 
television campaign scheduled to begin shortiv. 

not to mention S18 million to build a state-of- 
the-art corn chip factoiy in Coventry. 

Pepsi and its British snack-food subsidiary. 
Walkers Smiths Snack Foods Ltd., have high 
hopes for Doritos in Britain. 

Pepsi has invested heavily in its interna Liona] 
snacks business, spending $1.5 billion in recent 
years to acquire local manufacturers and dis- 
tributors, including S600 million for Walkers 
Smiths, the leading crisp maker in Britain. 

Because local tastes and snacking habits vary 
so much. Pepsi has largely viewed each market 
as distinct and has done liule to send its brands 
across borders. But now the company is taking 
the next step in the belief that adroit product 

development and marketing can create brands 
with international appeal. 

Britain, for example, is potato-chip crazy. 
Consumers eat 5.28 pounds (238 kilograms) of 
potato chips per person each vear and are the 
closest rivals on that front to Americans, who 
gobble an average 6.16 pounds of potato chips. 
Yet while Americans eat another 6.16 pounds 
each of com chips every year, the British eat 
almost none. 

Pepsi and Walkers Smiths spent several years 
testing com chips. They found that the British 
liked them just fine, as long as they were cut 
slightly thinner than Americans are accus- 
tomed to, and as long as they were flavored to 
British tastes. 

ILK, Industry Shows 
March Output Drop 

LONDON — Industrial 
output in Britain had an unex- 
pected setback in March, fall- 
ing by 0.6 percent when econo- 
mists had forecast a modest 
rise, according to government 
statistics released Wednesday. 

Analysts said die drop, fol- 
lowing a large rise in February, 
was an indication of month-to- 
month volatility. However, 
there is concern that economic 
recovery could be patchy. 

• Aegon NV, the Dutch insurance concern, said its first-quarter net prol 
rose 13 percent over the comparable quarter in W. to 2WU rnilfrc 
guilders ($138 million). 

• RTZ Corporation PLC, the British-based mining company. >aid it ft, 
completed the disposal of its remaining industrial products huMnose 
following last year's sale of most of Pillar Buikfing Products Ltd. 

• The Bundesbank, Germany's centra] bank, has withdrawn its rvserv:.- 
lions about tbe introduction of money-market funds to Gemiaro' 
financial markets, as long as the public sector limits issuing short-teiT 
paper for the funds, a parliament official said. 

• Nazmu Yinun, a Ugandan-Asian property investor, was sentenced t« 
two- and- a- half years in prison for Ins part in the Bunk of Credit am 
Commerce International scandal. 

• Finland's paper industry will construct one of the world's largest pul| 
mills near the town of Rauma, in Western Finland: the mill, due in » 
up by spring 1996. will produce 500,000 tons annually of fully hlcuclva 
softwood pulp. 

• The Czech government, faced with a deepening crisis in the nation*: 
banking system, said il would help protect depositors in Banka Ab, : 
regional bank just north of Prague. 

• The Royal Bankof Scotland announced half-year pretax profit of £20 1 
million ($299 million), up 125 percent from the comparable period a year 
ago; rite results were in line with analysis' expectations. 

• Volkswagen AG’s subsidiary Sodedad Espahola de AuUVtvmfc. <1* 
Tourismo SA said its Italian units. SEAT (tafia and SEAT RtVun'hi, v.ill 
merge with Volkswagen's fully owned Antogerma SpA. 

• Boeygnes SA, the French construction company, .said it*. first-qujrtc r 
sales increased 18 percent, to 13 billion French francs (S2 billion ». 

• Bremer Vulkan Verbund AG. the German shipbuilder, said it w-hjIJ 

reduce its workforce to 23.700 bv the end of 1994 front an avenue of; 
28,000 in 1993. <P. AFX. Kmgfit RidJtr. Awm. 4TF 1

Principal South Korean share- 
holders are Pohang Iron & Stud

Kolon Industries Inc, with 14 per- 
cent. Around 240 local concerns 
will make up the remainder. 

The spokesman added that Air-

The formation of the second mo- 
bile phone consortium ends a con- 
troversial chain of events that start- 
ed last year, when Sunkyong In- 
dustries Ltd, a textile manufacturer, 
was chosen to lead the venture. 

Sunkyong abandoned the deal 
after charges of nepotism. The son 
of Sunkyong’s chairman is married 
to the daughter of Roh Tae-Woo, 
the former Korean president. 

Following the Sunkyong pullout, 
die national communications min- 
istry gave the Federation a man- 
date to form a consortium through 
peaceful consultation.

GM said the new company. General Motors 
India Ltd. would be owned equally by the two 
companies, with GM having principal manage- 
ment responsibility. 

The venture would have an annual production 
of about 20,000 Astras, the same model produced 
in Europe by the CM subsidiary Adam Opel AG. 

Production is due to start in the third quarter of 
1995 at an existing Hindustan Motors plant at 
Halol. near the city of Vadodara in the western 
coastal state of Gujarat. GM said total investment 
in the site was expected to he around S100 million. 
The venture will create about 500 jobs. 

, Indian content of the car is targeted at 70 
percent after three years. 

Richard Nerod. a vice president of General 
Motors, said the venture would give GM an “ongo- 
ing presence 1 ' in the expanding Indian car market 
and serve as a springboard for future business. 

C.K. Birla, chairman of Hindustan Motors, said 
that GM’s return to India after 40 years was a vote 
of confidence in India's economic reforms. 

*T think that the automotive industry in India is 
now set to take a major leap forward, both in terms 
of technological upgrading and achievement of 
world class quality," Mr. Birla said. 

GM began assembling vehicles in India in 1928, 
building Chcvroleis in Bombay. It quit the country 
in 1954. seven years after India won independence 
from Britain, citing unfavorable economic condi- 
tions under protectionist government policies.

■ New Rules on Raising Money Abroad 

The Indian government on Wednesday set rules 
and limits for companies tapping foreign capital 
markets following the failure of a billion-doll ar 
Euro- issue by its overseas telephone monopoly. 
Agence France- Presse reported from New Delhi'. 

The Finance Ministry said it had decided to 
follow a “restrictive policy" toward corporations 
wishing to raise money abroad by floating convert- 
ible bonds. Funds raised in this way would be 
treated as direct foreign investment and should not 
exceed 51 percent of the capital of a company, the 
ministry said. 

The guidelines came after the fiasco suffered by 
the Videsh Sanchar Nigam Ltd., whose SI billion 
Euro-issue was withdrawn after a lukewarm re- 
sponse. The debacle created uncertainty about 
dozens of other planned Euro-issues by companies 
hoping to raise a total of $9 billion over the next

HONG KONG — Swire Pacific 

Ltd. revealed Wednesday that it 
has bought a IB percent stake in a 
retail and office complex in Shang- 
hai, its first major investment in 
real estate in China. 

The company said that one of its 
wholly owned subsidiaries. Swire 
Properties LuL. had signed an 
agreement Tuesday with C1T1C 
Hong Kong Ltd for a role in the 
project. The unit is an arm of China 
International Trust & Investment 
Corp-, the Chinese state-owned in- 
vestment concern. 

Neither company said how much 
money was transacted in the ar- 
rangement, but the cost of building 
the complex has been estimated at 
1.5 billion Hong Kong dollars 
(SI 94 million). 

Swire had said earlier this month 
that it was in contact with CTHC 
about a role in the project. 

Construction work will begin in 
early 1995 and the complex is ex- 
pected to be completed in the sec- 
ond half of 1997. Swire said. 

“Our 10 percent interest is a shar- 
eholding with which we are comfort- 
able as this marks our first venture 
into the property market in China." 
said Mike Noir.'a properties director 
and general manager of Swire. 

Peter Sutch, chairman of Swire, 
said last week that the company 
was hoping to work with the CITIC 
group on more real estate projects 
in China. “1 hope very much that 
we will be able to find other ven- 
tures there with CITIC that make 
sense to both of us." he said.

Thais Aid Foreign Investors 

Bloomberg Business Neies 

BANGKOK — Thailand’s Secu- 
rities and Exchange Commission 
has approved a plan that will allow 
overseas investors to get around 
rules on foreign ownership of Thai 
companies, a commission official 
said Wednesday. 

Under the plan, investment

be able to invest in Thai companies 
on behalf of foreign investors. The 
trusts will be Thai holding compa- 
nies, said Vasant Thienhora, direc-

more than 49 potent of most listed 

Under the new plan, because the

ply, Mr. Vasant said. 

Listed companies will be able to 
deride themselves whether to allow 
an investment trust to buy their 
shares, Mr. Vasant said.

Trade and Tourism Fuel Growth 

0 wo world events - Kuwait's 
recovery after the Gulf War 
and the breakup of the for- 
mer Soviet Union - have 
had a major effect on trade, business 
and the development of Dubai, one of 
die seven sheikhdoms that make up the 
United Arab Emirates. 

During the past three years, efforts to 
diversify Dubai's economy have inten- 
sified and are now beginning to pay off 
as the overall terms of trade increase, 
industrial and commercial investments 
have been pouring into the Jebel Ali 
Free Zone / they have increased by 150 
percent over the past three years), and 
leisure and recreational facilities have 
been expanded, making Dubai one of 
the premier sports and tourist centers of 
Arabia. Facilities for championship 
golf and powerboat racing are just two 
of many sports attractions that have 
helped 10 make Dubai a global destina- 

While most of Europe, North Ameri- 
ca and Japan have been in recession, 
the pace of business and trade in Dubai 
has accelerated rapidly - in spite of the 
fall in oil prices. This is because Dubai 
has never really been an oil-rich state, 
and for a century or more its economy 
has been based on trade and re-exports. 

Total trade rose in 1993 by 73 per- 
cent. to SI 733 billion; I992's total was 
a staggering 23.6 percent more than the 
$13 billion recorded in 1991. In 1993. 
imports amounted to SI 3.7 billion, 
compared with SI 2.9 billion in 1992. 
Machinery, electrical goods and tex- 
tiles were the top import items, fol- 
lowed by vehicles, aircraft and other 
transport equipment. Nonoil exports 
were up 7 percent, to just under SI bil- 
lion. Sales of base metals 1 mainly gold) 
were worth S3SI million. They were 
the highest single commodity on the 
export list and accounted for 39 percent 
of all nonoil exports. Other principal 
export hems were textiles fS256 mil- 
lion/ and vehicle, aircraft and transport 
equipment (S80 million ». Total re-ex- 
ports during the year were S2.8 billion, 
siightlv hisher than the 1992 fisure of 
S2.4 billion. 

Dubai's two main trading partners in 
1993 wore Japan, which sold Si. 9 bil- 

lion worth of goods, and China, with 
SI . 1 billion. They were followed by the 
Llniied States (SI billion). Britain 
(S9S1 million) and India ($958 mil- 
lion |. Re-exports confirm Dubai's po- 
sition as the main distribution hub tor 
the Middle East, the Asian subconti- 
nent. pans of Africa and the Mediter- 
ranean countries. 

This role has been greatly enhanced 
by the expansion of activity in the Jebel

Commenting on the trading position, 
Khalid A. bin Sulayem. the new chief 
executive of the Dubai Commerce and 
Tourism Promotion Board, says that 
one of the most significant recent 
trends has been the diversification of 
the economy. “The nonoil sector now 
accounts for more than 60 percent of 
the United Arab Emirates'* gross do- 
mestic product. And the diversification 
process is even more pronounced in 
Dubai, with a ratio of oil to other sec- 
tors of about 25:75. Trade is the driving 

Saeed Juma A1 Naboodah, president 
of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce 
and Industry, which will soon move to 
new headquarters, says that "the posi- 
tive economic trends made by Dubai 
were an extension of the healthy eco- 
nomic development of recent years. 
The national manufacturing industries 
made a substantial increase in the value 
of their exports during 1993. which in- 
dicated positive trends in local manu- 
facturing industries. The increasing 
number of foreign investors in manu- 
facturing also reflects the success of the 
industrial operations. It also confirms 
the support we are giving to economic 
diversification policy.” He believes 
that Dubai's integrated infrastructure 
has been a significant factor in makiog 
Dubai the leading international re-ex- 
port center of the region. 

Efforts by the local business commu- 
nity have also helped to create new and 
wider markets for Dubai's exports to 
Asia. Central Europe, and East and 
Central Africa. While Dubai’s present 
and past fortunes have been founded on 

trade, the 1990s have < 
nomenal growth in the 
sports sectors. The drive foritourisj

The Milwaukee Brewers are in 
first place, thanks to the best pitch- 
ing staff in the American League. 

That certainly sounds odd. but it 
happens to be true. 

Jaime Navarro pitched six up- 
and-down innings on Tuesday 
night, allowing eight hits and live 
walks while striking out a career- 
high eight in a *-5 comeback vie- 
tdrv over the Boston Red Sox at 
Fenway Park. 

Doug Henrv and Graeme Lloyd 
then turned in three perfKt innings 
in relieL giving the Brewers a 
league-leading 3.66 ERA. 

“We didn’t listen to people that 
said how bad we'd be," said Na- 

With its second straight victory, 
Milwaukee stayed in a first-place 
tie with the Chicago White Sox m 
the AL Central. The Brewers came 
back from a 5-2 deficit with a six- 
run seventh inning. 

“They’re an underrated bau- 
club,” Boston’s Scott Cooper said. 
“It's not like we’re playing some 
scrub team.” 

Boston's relievers lost this one. 
After Gar Finnvold started and al- 

lowed two runs in five innings in 
his major-league debut, the next 
three relievers gave up seven runs 
in 2Vj innings. 

Scott Bankhead gave up an KBi 
double to Bill Spiers. Greg Hams 
replaced Bankhead and loaded the 
bases by walking Turner Ward. 

AL roundup 

Alex Diaz's single made it 5-L 
Then Dave Nilsson struck out 
swinging at a pitch in the dirt, the 
ball got past catcher Damon Berry- 
hilL and Spiers scored. 

Two pilches later. Hams Tired 
the ball past BerryhiU again, allow- 
ing Ward to race home. John Jaha's 
RBI double chased Harris, and Bri- 
an Harper's single off Todd Froh- 
wirth made it 8-5. 

Yankees 5, Indians 3: Paul 
O'Neill homered twice and dou- 
bled against Cleveland, raising his 
batting average to .471 and giving 
■ New York, playing at home, its 
. fifth straight victory. 

; The Yankees lead the majors 
with a 21-10 mark. Not since July 
. 1 987 have they had the best record 
- in baseball this late in a season. 

O’Neill leads the majors in tai- 
ling and on-base percentage (.?/»)• 
He hit bases-empty homers in the 
second and eighth innings. 

Orioles 6, Blue Jays 3: Mike 
Oquisi pitched five innings or ha- 
less relief aaainsi visiting Toronto 
for his first major league victory, 
and Lee Smith worked the ninth to 
act his 15th save for Baltimore.

Hoiles and Leo Gomez also had 
two RBls apiece.

five-run first inning in Detroit, 
then Kirk Gibson and Lou Whi- 
taker later homered against Oak- 
land, which lost for the 18th lime in 
its last 20 games. 

Twins 7, Royals 4: Shane Mack s 

three-run homer in Kansas Gty 
helped Minnesota win its fourth 
straight- Mack, who has hit safely 
in all seven games since he was 
activated May 3, bit his second 
homer of the season in a four-tun 
fifth off Tom Gordon. 

Wlute Sox 6, Mariners 2: Robin 
Ventura. Joey Cora and Frank 
Thomas homered as Chicago beat 
visiting Seattle. 

Cora drove in four runs for the 
Sox, who had 18 bits in their high- 
est-scoring game of the season. 

Angels 5, Rangers 5: The game, 
tied after eight innings at 1:10 
A.M. in Texas, was to be resumed 
Wednesday and followed by the 
regularly scheduled game because 
AL rules state no inning can begin 
after 1 A.M. on a team’s first visit

MILAN — Inter Milan set up a 
possible Iuiian double when it won 
the UEFA Cup here on Wednesday 
by beating Casino Salzburg of Aus- 
tria, 1 -0. with a goal by Wim Jonk. 

AC Milan faces Barcelona in the 
European Champions’ Cup final 
next week. Arsenal prevented an 
Italian sweep of the European tro- 
phies by defeating Parma for the 
Cup Winners' Cup lost week.

end of the game came just in time 
for Inter, which was struggling to 
bold onto the Nicola Berti goal that 

S ve them a 1-0 lead from the first 
j of the fmal in Austria. 

The Brazilian midfielder Mar- 
quinho beat Inter’s goalkeeper. 
Waller Zenga. with a low shot that 
bounced back after hilling boih 
posts as Salzburg keep Inter under 

But the Uruguayan forward Ru- 
ben Sosa, reportedly on the move 
to Roma, slipped die ball through 
for Jonk, and the Dutch midfielder 
ouunaneuvered the defense and 
chipped over Salzburg’s keeper. 
Otto Konrad, from a tight angle. 

Sosa also missed two clear 
chances to score during the match. 

Zenga saved Inter in the second 
half when he blocked a fierce shot 
from Salzburg’s right back. Leo 

Inter was the UEFA Cup winner 
in 1991. Italian clubs have won the 
competition five times in the last 
six years. 

t;ame acK ' joining a field 
CTOwded with owners of the Grand Slam titles 
hfw heretofore eluded him. Agassi, the’ 
No. 12 seed, was upset Wednesday by a 22- 
Italian, Stefano Pescosdido, 6-3, 1-6, 
the 1989 French Open champion and 
nfth-saded, Michael, Chang was beaten by 
Jaoco Httngh of die Netherlands. 6 - 3 , 7-6 ( 74 ). 
Neither winner is seen as a longterm threat; 
Agassi still has Wimbledon, and Chung vvill 
always have Paris. 

Pete Sampras, the world No. 1, had to break 

scheduled to play Alberto Berasategui of Spain 
later in the evening. 

In the meantime, Ivanisevic was deciding to 
not wear a brace around his right knee after 
playing soccer on Monday. 

“He hurt a ligament.” said his coach. Bob 
BrelL “He didn’t even touch the ball. He is the 
only player in the history of football who ever 
had an injury with touching the ball." 

Knee troubles, no matter bow wobbly the 
cause; are the best excuse of all. But Ivanisevic 
played with an urgency, winning the first five 
games. If ft is easy to lose your sense of purpose 

“The fact that Goran fought hard today and 
played hard until the end was something that 
was very good.” Breu said. “It’s important for 
every athlete to always go to the end, because 
you never know whai’a going to happen. If you 
don’t, then you really baven'L learned anything. 
If you do, you learn about yourself and what 
you need to do to win.” 

How must it feel at 22. to experience that 
middle-aged scare? Perhaps it helps: Ivanisevic 
survived an early break in the second set to 
triumph as he almost always should. The next 
step for him is to focus upward, which is the 
way he used to be.

Jazz Stymie New, Improved Nuggets, 
But Pacers Spring Upset on Hawks 

The Associated Press 
Where are those Denver Nuggets

times during the National Basket-

“They’re the same team, but con-

Malone, who scored 25 point* in 
Utah's 100-91 victory Tuesday 
night in Game 1 of the Western 
Conference semifinal series. 

The same can be said of the Indi- 
ana Pacers, who won their 12th 
straight game, and fourth in a row 
in the playoffs, by beating the 
Hawks in Atlanta in the opener of 
an Eastern Conference semifinal 

Seattle, and set a playoff record 
with 31 blocks in five games.

sharp shooting from 
the outside, also had 1 1 rebounds. 
Still, he was concerned that the 
Nuggets, who refused to buckle in 
the first game of the best-of-7 se- 
ries, could be even more of a threat 
in Thursday night’s second game. 

“They never gave up.“ Malone 

Mu tombo. a major factor in 
Denver's stunning first-round vic- 
tory over Seattle with his defensive 
play, had 20 points, 10 rebounds 
and four blocks. He had blocked 
eight shots in the game that ousted 

a 16-point lead with 5:41 to play. 

The Nuggets had trailed by nine 
at halftime, but an 1 1-0 run gave 
them a 55-53 lead three minutes 
into the second half. It was short-

Corbin scored inside, then drew a

Game 2 of the best-of-7 series 
will be played Thursday night in 

The top-seeded Hawks, who ad- 
vanced to the second round for the 
first time since 1988 by beating 
Miami in five games, led by 5347 
at halftime. Bui the Pacers, with 
Antonio Davis hitting all six of his 
shots, outscored Atlanta, 32-19. in 
the next period and led by 79-72 
going into the fourth quarter. 

“I think we just got tired in the 
third quarter," Atlanta center Jon 
Koncak said. “But they were tough 
inside, especially the Davis guvs. 
They were 14-for-20 between them. 
That broke our backs “ 

Atlanta closed to 85-83 on a fol- 
low shot by Danny Manning with 
3:16 left, but Reggie Mdler, who 
led five Pacers in double figures 
with 18 points, made four free 
throws and a 3-pointer for a 94-85 

Further, citing a need to deter 
terrorism, the U.S. organizing com- 
mittee is requiring reporters seek- 
ing credentials to sign waivers au- 
thorizing law-enforcement 
agencies to provide any informa- 
tion they may have about the re- 
porters. « 

Some large news organizations, 


including The New Vork Times 
and The Associated Press, have 
said their reporters will not sign the 
committee’s forms authorizing the 
background checks. 

• Figures issued Wednesday- 
showed that Olympique Marseille 
ran up debts of 123 million francs 
(S22 million) in the 1992-93 season, 
bringing the total debt to 404 mil- 
lion francs even before briberv alle- 
gations caused the team further fi- 
nancial problems. 

Much of the debt is due to be 
paid back next month. 

The team’s owner, Bernard Ta- 
pie, said later that the club's books 
would be balanced for this season 
because, "Thanks to the sale of

Left Off the Beauty List 

magazine is printing lists of 
the bestthings in the world. There 
are “Best Colleges," "Best Hospi-

Troopers Working for a Gover- 

People magazine has recently 
published their list of “The 50 Most 
Beautiful People 
in the Worid." 

I know that 
many or you 
were surprised 
that I didn't 
make the issue, 
ll was one of 
those sad omis- 
sions caused by 
human error. 

It turned out n . u ^ faHAA 
that f had made BuchwaM 

the list, and the magazine sent out 
one of their photographers to take 
my picture. Instead of going to my 
house, he went to John F. Kennedy 
Jr.’s house next door. When I came 
home from work I found the People 
van parked in his driveway. 

1 asked what was going on and 
they told me that JFK Jr. was pos- 
ing as one of the 30 most beautiful 
persons on the face of the Earth. 

This surprised me because, al- 
though John’s a cute guy, he didn't 
deserve to be up there with AJ Gore 
Jr. and Henry Cisneros, secretary 
of Housing and Urban Develop- 

French TV Network 
Fined for Too Many Ads 

The Associated Press 

PARIS — France’s leading tele- 
vision network has been fined 2.8 
million francs, or about $ 490 , 000 , 
for airing too much advertising. 
Audiovisual authorities fined pri- 
vatelv-owned TF-J at the rate of 
16.0(50 francs per surplus second 
for exceeding the limit of 12 com- 
mercial minutes an hour on two 

French television normally 
shows long chunks of advertising 
between programs, rather than in- 
tercutting shows with ads. TF-I is 
the top-rated or France's six main 
broadcast channels, featuring the 
country's most-watched prime time 
news and a mix of films, variety 
shows and documentaries. 

I went over to Kennedy's plat* 
and informed the photographer 
that he was wasting his film be- 
cause my physique and face were 
distinctly superior to those of Ken- 
nedy. I was rebuffed. “We've got a 
deadline and when we touch up the 
photos John will look almost as 
good as you." 

I was incensed and called the 
people at People magazine. I left a 
message on their voice mail and 
four hours later an editor called me 

“There’s been a terrible mis- 
take." I said. "1 happen to be one of 
the 50 most beautiful people in the 
world and you photographed my 
neighbor, John Kennedy Jr„ by 

The editor went through his files. 
“You’re right," he told me. "Now 
that f recall the balloting, you actu- 
ally had two more votes than he 
did. Unfortunately, we're getting 
ready to go to press and we won't 
be able to include you in our issue." 


“But whai are people going to 
say when they see Kennedy instead 
of me?" 

“1 imagine there will be puzzle- 
meat aod chagrin, but young John 
has his own following so not every- 
one will be disappointed." 

“Why can’t vou dump Tom 
Cruise? After all." he's just another 
pretty face." 

“We can't drop anybody at this 
[ate date. Perhaps we can make it 
up to you in our back pages with a 
photo of you as a guest at a Bruce 
Springsteen concert." 

It was obvious that the magazine 
was not going to remake its special 
edition despite the blatant error, f 
thought about suing and letting a 
jury decide who bad the best biceps 
in the worid — Kennedy or me. 
Instead. I pretended that my omis- 
sion from the list was no big deal. 

I made up some excuses like. “1 
didn't think much or the Him they 
were using," or “When I heard that 
Paul Newman was going to be in 
the same issue, I said. ’Forget it.' " 

1 don’t wish to give the impres- 
sion that I am bitter about this. 
Sports Illustrated is talking to my 
agent about my appearing on the 
cover of their “Best Suntan" issue. I 
will appear solo with oil all over my 
body. It will make John Kennedy 
Jr. sorry that he didn't wait for a 
really good photo opportunity. 

By Mike Zwerin 

huemantmai Herald Tribune 

P ARIS — Sally KeDerman has spent the best pari of 
her 27-year acting career trying to make enough 
money to pay the piano player. And the Shrink, This is 
Hollywood. " 

Her bio overflows with major credits, you won t believe 
the names to be dropped herein. Well not dropped exactly, 
let's say presented. The names are all organically part of 
her life and she mumbles them quickly, as though embar- 
rassed by the weight of the Jong siring. 

She wffl soon leave Paris after two months on location 
playing the part of the editor of Harper's Bazaar in Robert 
Altman’s film “Pret-a-Porter." Her role as the nurse Hoilips 
in his first smash. “M*A*S*H." earned her an Oscar 
nomination. Over the years, she costarred with James Cairn. 
Sissy Spacek, Alan Aririn, Jodie Foster, Keith Carradine, 
Kevin Kline. Julie Andrews, Tony Curtis. Jack Lemmon. 
Sir Laurence Olivier and soon on screens and stages big and 
small. Citing her commerdais for Volvo, Wooiite. Clairol 
and a long etcetera. The Wall Street Journal called Keller- 
man the “most sought after voice-over actress in the coun- 
try." Someone proclaimed her the “Voice of America." 

Judging from her jitterbug-paced rap and the story it 
tells, the voice is frustrated. She grew up in the San 
Fernando Valley — “the first Valley Girl," she calls 
herself — and made the first of many demo recordings, 
with her girlfriend's boyfriend. (She copied Mel Tonne's 
phrasing on “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square.") At 
the age or 1 S . while vacationing on Balboa Island with her 
parents and teenage friend Jack Nicholson, she received a 
phone call from Barney Kessel. producing for Verve 
Records at the time. He said Norman Graxtz had heard the 
demo and wanted to sign her to a contract. 

It was signed but the Verve people never called her and 
she was afraid to call them, didn't know who to call 
anyway or what to say. She never recorded for or even met 
them. “I was neurotic and shy. a retard." she explains with 
a sigh. The contract expired. A little later she dated 
Nicholson's roommate, whose cousin drove a Los Angeles 
taxi and played some guitar. They made demos in Nichol- 
son’s house bn Fountain and Gardner. She went to acting 
school and studied with vocal coaches. Her first break 
came landing the role of Mary Tyler Moore's standby in 
David Merrick’s Broadway production of “Breakfast at 
Tiffany's." She calls the show a “huge disastrous Hop." 

Waiting on tables in Chez Paulette’s on Sunset Boule- 
vard, serving Marlon Brando. Nicholson and “all my 
buds." was the only job she ever liked other than acting 
and singing. Then came “M*A*S*H" and the Oscar 
nomination. Her role in “Brewster McCloud" solidified 
her working relationship with Altman, who told her she 
reminded him of Joe Cocker, his robotic presentation not 
his singing. She can laugh about it now; 

“Instead of waiting to at least wm an Oscar or taking a 
few of all the parts I was being offered, right in the middle 
of the movie career I'd been working on for 13 years w hich 
was finally going somewhere, now that I'd 'perfected' my 
acting I decided f was going to be a smgv.. fhi.\ is hov. 
messed-up my brain was." 

Nobody told her that the recording engineer can equalize 
the balance later so, making a demo with Carole King's 
rhythm section, she tried to sing louder than the band. 
Nevertheless she signed a contract with Decca Records. Her 
album “Roll With the Feriing" did not exactly take off. 
Turning down a slew of roles, she spent $50,000 of her 



KeUerrnan the music maker: Her bio overflows with major acting credits, but she wants to be a sinper. 


movie money taking an 1 1-piece band on the road io prove 
her musical credentials. She wore diamond belts on stage 
and designer gowns with feathers, and paid for expensive 
choreography and elaborate arrangements. She shakes her 
head, one in a long series of head shakes: “And 1 couldn i 
even sing." 

h’s difficult for acton* to become musicians, the other 
direction is at lea*t less confusing. Anybody can sing in the 
shower so 3 W of people believe singing i 5 - for everybody 
Acting requires a method and makeup on several levels: 
it's scary. Actors tend to think of the visual first — - 
choreograph, play a role, project. While the uniqueness of 
music, even good commercial music made by the likes of 
Streisand and Bono, is that it's from the heart. Audiences 
can tell the difference. Dudley M* ore. for example. was an 
excellent pianisL When he wanted to pwy music again 
after becoming a movie star, he -eemed w be play mg a 
piano player instead of the pun*-. 

It took KeUerrnan a lifetime ot role-playing to learn not 
to play roles singing music. She sang some songs by Burt 
Bachurach in the film "Lost H- -ri/on.' “another huge colos- 
sal disaster." W hcu it come- to singing op stage or for the 
camera, she say a she'-, j "tinv." S*vn she will audition for 
the role of Gloria Swanson in the musical stage production 
of “Sunset Boulevard" and she hopes “the producers don't 
read this." Never mind, jinxes can be jinxed. 

Her continuing love affair with music is a “miracle. For 
some reason, nobody could keep me from singing." She was 
“in and out of town, in and out of music, in and out of 
movies. Titanic God 1 had my ‘hobby’ of acting." There were 
lean times, she had to borrow money from her mother. But 
one nice thing ab*»>t the movie business is that "broke" is 
not really poor. Down and out in Beverly Hills is an 

oxymoron. When I interviewed Kelknnan in the cushy 
lobby of the luxurious residential hold cm the Champs- 
Elysfes where she. her 4-year old twins and her husband 
Jonathan Krane have been staying, she caDed it homespun. 

She mad* a demo in Nashville but she “wasn't about to 
get on a flatbed truck and drive oat into the country with a 
slide-guitar player." Bobby Womack produced a demo for 
her. it went nowhere. She recorded a “biscuits and gravy" 
demo in Muscle Shoals. Alabama. (They played basket- 
ball between takes.) It went nowhere. Paul Rotbchildwho 
produced Jams Joplin wanted to produce KeDerman. The 
idea went nowhere. 

A year ago, two friends who worked in the theater told 
her to forget about theatricality and concentrate on music: 
“Take off that dress, put on your big sweatshirt, take off 
those high-heels, put your dirty Rceboks on. Mess up that 
hair. Be your rcai seif." She had never considered her 
“real" musical self to be worth presenting. It had. to be a 
show, music alone somehow made her feel exposed. She 
followed their advice. 

On her current demo, she rings “Cry Me a River,” 
“Midnight Sun" and other 1940s and 1950s numbas with 
which she feds comfortable. It sounds comfortable. Good 
songs well sung. But will it be another “huge colossal 

Vice President A! Gore invited her to ring for his 
favorite charily. She has been asked to sing for a charity 
affair Henry Mantini is hosting in his home. Her perfor- 
mance in the Rose Tattoo, a small dub in LA. was 
reviewed: “Every note of every phrase was filled with 
affectionate magic," Johnny Mandd and Dave Grurin 
have asked her to send them demos.
