ign pcrficy confrontation it largely aban- 
doned after Republicans left the White House, 
threatening political problems for Mr. Clinton 
and confusion for the world. 

The Senate's votes last week to force a 
prompt end to the arms embargo against Bos- 
nia — despite conflicting directives on how to 
do it — amounted to a warning shot that could 
lead to further troubles for Mr. Clinton unless 
Capitol Hill is heeded, many legislators of both 
parties said. 


The restiveness in Congress arises from a 
confluence of forces. The end of the Cold War 
has made foreign issues less dear, and many 
largely regional conflicts have no easy resolu-

NH1 BINH, Vietnam — On Jan. 14, 1970, 
Tlte Washington Post published a front-page 
story describing how American B-52s had 
bombed Nhi Binh village by mistake two years 
earlier. " - 

> Perhaps 150 bombs had fallen sBentfy from 
riant bombers flying five miles up in the sky, 
Kiting 80 villagers and wounding 70 more, 
damaging or destroying many of the villagers’ 
th«triv»dTiuts and leaving vast craters.' ~ •- 
Two years after the bombing, the re^dents of 
- :-Nhi Binh still waited tm promised American 
compensation for the death and destruction. 

'■•When Americans showed up in 197ft yflbgets 
to greet them, hopmg that they were 
the cash. But the visitors came with 


y^rifl ns, not cdsh.' Those visitors were this

Vietnam has doubled in these 24-years — it is 


now about 72 n^lion people — and the conse-

numerous brick and stucco houses have

At first it was hard to believe that this was the 
same Nhi Binh, but a stone-and-mortar turret, 
once . of a mihria outpost in the village, 
provided a familiar landmark. This was the 
place. 

We sought out a local authority and quickly 
found Thai Van Tan, 66, the Communist Party 
secretary in Nhi Binh. Mr. Tan is a small, 
sinewy man whose most striking physical char- 
acteristic is the absence of a right arm. It was 
blown off in a battle in 1969. Until then he had 
been an underground Communist cadre in Nhi 
Binh, o perating secretly and living literally un-

Breathing Space for Major 

Labor’s Leadership Battle May Be Divisive 


By William E. Schmidt 

New York Time Sr'rw.r 

LONDON — For months. (he biggest question 
in British politics has been whether Prime Minister 
John Major will survive as leader of the Conserva- 
tive Partv, which has been racked by squabbling 
over its plummeting popularity and rifts over Eu- 
ropean policy. 

Now the Labor Party opposition, with the death 
last Thursday of its leader. John Smith, is facing a 
potentially divisive debate of its own. In the next 
few weeks, the party must negotiate the politically 
perilous task of choosing a new chief. 

Since Mr. Smith had taken over as leader two 
years ago. offer the pony's founh consecutive 
defeat in a national election, he had amiably united 
Labor's quarrelsome factions and restored the par- 
ty machine lo fighting trim, precisely when the 
Conservatives have been floundering. 

Earlier this month. Labor battered the govern- 
ing Tories in town and county elections, and polis 
predict even bigger Labor victories in voting next 
month for the European Parliament. 

Last weekend, amid pleas for unity and a sus- 
pension of campaigning until Mr. Smith’s funeral 
this Friday. Labor rivals were quietly lining up 
support within the party. Its rank and file are 
divided between the old-style trade unionists and 
the so-called modernists who want to nudge the 
party more toward the political center. 

Surveys of party members in London newspa- 
pers suggested that the strongest support was 
building for Tony Blair, the party's telegenic 41- 
y ear-old spokesman on domestic affairs. 

Because of his youthful appeal and a willingness 
to address traditional Conservative issues like law 
and order. Mr. Blair is described by his supporters 
as an even more formidable challenger than Mr. 
Smith would have been, especially in areas of 
southern England where Labor has been shut out 
in Ihe last four national ballots. 

The Daily Telegraph, a newspaper thai tradi- 
tionaliv backs Torv candidates, called Mr. Blair 


“the man Conservatives most fear as a future 
leader of the Labor Party." 

But Bill Connor, an official of the shopworkers' 
union and a member of the parly’s executive com- 
mittee, said he was skeptical of Mr. Blair’s commit- 
ment toward trade unions, whose membership still 
makes up the bulk of the party's hard-core political 
and financial support. 

Mr. Blair and Gordon Brown. 43. a former 
television journalist who is a dose friend of Mr. 
Blair’s, are the preferred choices of the party’s 
more moderate wing. On the left, the candidates 
most often mentioned are John Prescott. 55. a 
political brawler and former union offidal: Robin 
Cook. 48. the party spokesman on trade and indus- 
try. and Margaret Beckett. 55. who was Mr. 

Smith’s deputy. 

Under new rules that Mr. Smith helped engineer 
last year to break the hold of block voting by trade 
unions, the new leader will be selected by an 
electoral college. One-third of the delegates will be 
chosen by a ballot of Britain's 4J million trade 
unionists, one-third by a vote of Labor members of 
Parliament, and one-third by the party* s 250.000 
full members. 

There is wide agreement that Labor's loss of Mr. 
Smith may have given Mr. Major some breathing 
space. Lord Howe, a former member of Margaret 
Thatcher's cabinet, said a Labor leadership contest 
would afford “a respite from the rather frenzied 
discussions" over dumping Mr. Major. 

The death of Mr. Smith, felled at 55 by his 
second heart attack in six years, may have helped 
Mr. Major in another way: by casting doubt on the 
fitness of Michael Hesdtine, 61. often cited as his 
chief Conservative challenger. 

Mr. Hesdtine. six years older than Mr. Smith, 
has only recently recovered from a bean attack he 
suffered last year. A member of Mr. Major's cabi- 
net, Mr. Hesdtine sought to allay doubts, telling 
an interviewer, “I would question any suggestion 
that 1 am not 100 percent fit.''

In Break With Past, Some London Bobbies Will Garry Guns 


.Vm >.ii> Time* X.Wi. r 

LONDON — Scotland Yard rewrote 
rules on Monday that have traditionally 
barred police officers from openly carrying 
guns, and for the first lime will send a few 
dozen specially trained bobbies into the 
streets this summer, wearing sidearms in 
hip holsters. 

The change in the arming policy — pro- 
voked by a growing number of violent 
assaults on police officers — will go unno- 
ticed by most resident* and visitors to the 
capital. 

All but a handful of London's uni- 
formed bobbies will continue to walk their 
beats and ride patrols cars without weap- 
ons. as thev have done since the London 


police force was established more than a 
century ago. 

But while the new policy' affects only a 
few pa tail officers, police officials said it 
had a much larger symbolic importance, as 
one more step toward providing bobbies 
with the kinds of weapons they need to 
defend themselves. 

“1 think we all value the traditional im- 
age of the British bobby," said Paul Con- 
don. the superintendent of the Metropoli- 
tan Police Department of London, at a 
news conference. 

"But we have to police the real world, 
and ihe equipment and training must have 
some link with the real world." 

.After having had two officers killed in 


recent months, two others shot and several 
stabbed, Mr. Condon said. “1 am not pre- 
pared to to ask them to carry out their job 
without better protection." 

The change in policy was endorsed by 
government, which announced the new 
measures earlier Monday as a “measured 
response" to the problems facing the po- 
lice. 

But while the Home Secretary, Michael 
Howard, said the move was “an important 
step in providing the police with better 
protection," he also said he believed most 
British police would re main unarmed for 
“a long, long time to come." 

In addition to allowing a handful of 
officers to cany sidearms while on duty. 


Mr. Condon also authorized police officers 
to carry 22-inch-long, nylon riot sticks rou- 
tinely. 

Wooden nightsticks 12 to 14 inches long 
now are the standard issue. 

He also said London police officers 
would test the use of pepper-gas sprays, as 
a way “to disorient" violent subjects, and 
would conduct trials on the feasibility of 
equipping all beat officers with bullet- and 
stab-resistant vests. 

The measures are a result of growing 
pressure from police organizations to allow 
officers to carry belter weapons to defend 
themselves against criminals who are them- 
selves belter armed.

German Youth Charged With Leading Anti- Foreigner Riot Go-Ahead 


By Stephen Kinzer 

,\Vw York Timet 5 cr.ice 
BERLIN — Facing sharp criti- 
cism from politicians and human- 
rights leaders, policemen in the 
East German city or Magdeburg 
brought charges Monday against a 
teenager suspected of being the 
ringleader of a riot 3gainst foreign- 
ers there last week. 

Magdeburg’s chief prosecutor. 
Rudolf Jaspers, said the suspect 
was 19 years old and was believed 
to be the leader of a local neo-Nazi 
group with about 80 members. He 
is being charged wirh “an especially 


serious case of disturbing the 
peace.” Mr. Jaspers said. 

Following normal procedure. 
Mr. Jaspers declined to identify the 
suspect. He said investigators 
hoped to bring charges against oth- 
er suspects. 

On Thursday, a gang of about 
150 neo-Nazis, skinheads and other 
thugs chased asylum-seekers, most 
of them from Sierra Leone and Ni- 
geria, through the streets and into a 
caffe owned by a local Turk. 

In the subsequent clash, at least 
four assailants were stabbed by 
Turkish-born cafe employees who 


tried to defend the asylum-seekers. 

After the clash, anti -foreigner 
gan gs roamed the streets for hours 
in search of victims, and there were 
several assaults. The police arrested 
49 suspecis but quickly released all 
except one man. who was being 
sought on an unrelated charge. 
They said they could not identify 
any of the 49 as having been re- 
sponsible for specific crimes. 

Several prominent Germans 
strongly criticized the police for not 
preventing the violence, for failing 
to film it and for quickly releasing 
the suspects. 


“It is horrible, and it is difficult 
for any of us to accept," President 
Richard von Weizsflcker said in a 
broadcast interview. 

“It is hard to understand how, as 
we see from television pictures, 
hoodlums or right-wing extremists 
can charge through the streets 
breaking windows and attacking 
people, and then 50 or more arc 
arrested, but that same night 
they’re all released," he said. "Are 
they supposed to go out the next 
night and do the same thing 
again?"

of cancer in Corpus Chris ti. Texas. 

In 1938. Mr. Plunkett was a 
young research chemist in a Du 
Pont Co. laboratory in Deepwater. 
New Jersey, conducting an experi- 
ment on a possible new refrigerant 
when he discovered that be had 
created a new product. 

Mr. Plunkeu recalled later that 
be was looking disappointedly at a 
glob of white, waxy material inside 
a laboratory cylinder, thinking the 
experiment a failure, when he de- 
cided to test the material for prop- 
erties other than refrigeration. He 
found it to be resistant to beat to 
be chemically inert and. belter yet, 
to have very low surface friction, so 
it would not stick to anything. 

Teflon, the trade name for the 
polyieirafluoroethylene resin, was 
to become a household name in 
cooking pans, and three-quarters of 
the pots and pans sold in the Unit- 
ed Slates are now coated with Tef- 
lon or one of its cousins. 

Mr. Plunkeu was awarded a pat- 
ent in 1941 for his invention.

Two heavy artillery shells hit a resi- 
dential area of the mainly Muslim 
industrial town of Tuzla on Mon- 
day. causing panic witnesses said. 

It was the third consecutive day

been shelled The shells appear to 
have come from Serbian positions 
about 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) to 
the northeast.

killed and four were injured during 
shelling, prompting local authori- 
ties to close schools. 

Earber. officials of the UN force 
said in Sarajevo that three pieces of 
heavy weaponry bad been sighted 
in a Serbian-controlled neighbor-

On Pill for 
Abortions 


WASHINGTON — The 
French abortion pill RU-486 
will be tested in the United 
States under an agreement 
with the manufacturer to do- 
nate its patent rights to a U.S. 
nonprofit organization, it was 
announced Monday. 

Roassel Uclaf, which has re- 
fused to allow the pill to be 
used in the United States be- 
cause of concern about pro-' 
tests by abortion opponents, 
said it had agreed to. donate 
patent rights lo the Population 
CounciL ' 

“After long negotiations 
with the Population Council, 
Roussel Uclaf has agreed to 
the above solution, which 
eliminates its involvement in 
tbe manufacture and distribu- 
tion of RU-486 in the United . 
States," the company said. 

Representative Ron Wyden. 
an Oregon Democrat who has 
been working for testing of 
RU-486 in the United States, 
said that the pQl would be test- 
ed on about 2,000 women for 
several months beginning this 
fall. 

• The tests wiB allow the 1 
Food and Drug Administra- 
tion to determine whether the 
piU is safe for general use. 

He said the piU would be | 
used only up to the seventh 
week of pregnancy. 

The secretary of health and 
human services, Donna E. 
Shalala. said tbe agreement 
had been reached with the en- 
couragement of the Clinton 
administration.

ATHENS (AP) — Air-traffic controllers in Greek airports announced 
a 48-hour strike beginning Tuesday that would create chaos for thou- 
sands of fans arriving for the European Champions Cup soccer final on

that about 300 flights were scheduled to arrive late Monday through 
Wednesday hath Italian and Spanish fans for the AC Mflan-Barcelona 
match.

Parliament that would put civil aviation employees under the control of 
tool governors. He said traffic controllers wanted to “remain under the 
jurisdiction of the ministry of communication." 

France's anfine industry faced new troubles Tuesday in a 24-hour strike 
by. Air 'Inlet. The strike arises from the same cause that set Paris and 
London at loggerheads over landing rights last week: French government 
efforts to protect money-losing Air France. It took control of 72 percent 
°t Air^ I nter in 1990 under a pact that forces the company to serve 
unprofitable internal routes and tors it from Air. France’s lucrative 
external routes. Meanwhile, Air Libenfe said Tuesday that it would

Finance Committee is probablv funner awav from 
talcing a position than any of the other concessio- 
nal committees working on the topic. 

Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Democrat of 
New York, who heads the committee, and its 
other members expect the committee to play the 
central role in shaping a bill. They point to their 
own knowledge about health, the fact that the 11- 
to-9 ratio of Democrats to Republicans mirrors 
the Senate itself and, not least, their jurisdictional 
authority over taxes. Medicare and Medicaid. 

And while some senators who stronglv back 
President Bill Ginton's approach to the issue con- 
tend that they could overcome elsewhere a dead- 
lock in the Finance Committee, many consider 
that impossible. 

Of the five congressional committees with major 
roles on health. Finance is the least partisan, the 
most amiable and. so far, the most secretive of 
them all. It has also set itself the slowest pace, 
meeting privately for a couple of hours a week, 
and not yet trying to write the outlines of a health- 
care bill. 

A Republican praised Mr. Moynihan’s informal 
approach, which he said compared to a senior 
common-room discussion over sherry. ( jy j'yj

Nt *■ York Tines Service 
DETROIT — It was a wave of the hand 
from a 10-year-old boy with a Botticelli face 
and Dennis the Menace bangs that brought 
Elizabeth Alvarez to her death on a humid 
afternoon last August. 

The boy, Jacob Gonzales, wheeled around 
a bank parking lot on the banana seat of a 
pink bicycle he had stolen and looked for a 
robbery victim. His accomplice, Damien 
Dorris, 14, a drug dealer who owed the 
neighborhood kingpins 5430, lay in wait near 
the automated teller machine. 

Mrs. Alvarez, pregnant and the mother of 
three, was hurrying to get cash for a birthday 
parly. She passed by little Jacob and smiled. 
“Isn't it a good day?" Jacob said she asked. 
Jacob nodded in agreement and watched her 
walk toward the machin e. He signaled to 
Damien when their prey ™dg her withdraw- 
al. 


But Mrs. Alvarez refused to hand over her 
$80, so Damien shot her in the head with a 
.22-caliber pistol. 

Then the boys ran off to divide the pro- 
ceeds. Jacob's take was S20. He bought a 
chili dog and some Batman toys. Both boys 
were arrested the next morning. 

Damien pleaded guilty to second-degree 
murder. Jacob, whose detention garb had to 
be rolled up at the ankles and wrists and 
secured at the waist to keep from falling off. 


pleaded guilty to armed robbery. Both boys 
were sentenced to the maximum term, to 
remain in stare custody until they are 2], 

Sitting in an office at a children's home in 
Flint. Michigan, recently. Jacob twined a 
pen, bis feet dangling from a chair, not quite 
touching the floor, and tried to explain that 
violent day. 

"Some stuff bad happened," he said, flip- 
ping the pat in the air and catching it before 
throwing it up again. “It was a game. It 
wasn't to kill ine lady. It wasn't supposed to 
be like that. It was a game, right? 1 

The country is facing a crisis of violence 
among young people unlike any before, 
criminologists say. Even as violent crime 
overall has leveled off since 1990 and the 
□umber of teenagers has declined, arrests of 
people under 18 for violent crime rase 47 
percent from 1988 to 1992, according to the 

The rise in violence among the young 
crosses racial, class and geographic bound- 
aries. From 1982 to 1992, FBI statistics 
show, the rate of arrests for violent crimes 
rose twice as fast among young whites as 
among young blacks. 

Still, young blacks were arrested at five 
tiroes the rate of young whites for violent 
crimes, making them responsible for half of 
such crimes. The white rate jumped to 126 
arrests per 100.000 whites under the age of 
18, from 82. The black rate rose to 677 


arrests for every 100.000 blacks under 18. 
from 533. 

The high rate of violent crime among 
blacks is linked to their high rate of poverty. 
Mid Dr. Mark Rosenberg, director of the 
Nauonal Center for Injury Prevention and 
Control at the Centers for Disease Control 
and Prevention in Atlanta. 

“Race is not a cause." Dr. Rosenberg said. 
“This is an American problem.” 

One in six arrests for murder, rape, rob- 
bery or assault is of a suspect under IS. 
Slayings by these teenagers alone has risen 
by 124 percent from 1986 to 1991, according 
to the latest FBI statistics. In 1992, the FBI 
said, young people killed 3,400 people na- 
tionwide. 

A change in weaponry from the knives of 
the past to the guns of today has been a 
major factor in the rise in slayings by juve- 
niles, criminologists say. But there is evi- 
dence that young people are more violent 
today than a decade ago, even without weap- 
ons, according to the bureau statistics. 
Young people committed twice as many as- 
saults without a weapon in 1992 as in 1982. 
143368 to 73387. 

_ Violence among the young is growing at a 
time when a generation of children bora to 
tentage mothers is coming of age in neigh- 
borhoods already weakened by the addictive 
power of crack and the force of the drug 
dealers. 


Although adults, primarily those in their 
20s and 30s. account for the majority of ail 
crimes, criminologists say those committed 
by young people can escalate out of control 
because youngsters tend to act impulsively. 

“Kids are the most dangerous criminals 
out there,” said Charles Patrick Ewing, a 

S and forensic psychologist who is a 
Of of law at the State University of 
oik at Buffalo and author of the book. 
“Kids Who Kill" (Lexington Books, 1990). 

They may take a life over a jacket or a 
disdainful look, often without remorse or an 
understanding of the consequences. 

Many older armed robbers will say. “Give 

,v. ’ ...... . — - k. c.,:.. 


up the money,’ and let you go." Mr7 Ewing 
said. “A kid may or may not kill ; 


you depend- 
ing upon the whim of the moment.” 

While violent crime occurs at a dispropor- 
tionately higher rate in dues than in suburbs 
and among blacks than among whites, 

S Jth/uJ rampages that once seemed con- 
ed to inner dues are now striking suburbs 
and farm towns as well. 

The number of teenagers is expected to 
rise by as much as 20 peroral in the next 10 
years and by an even greater percentage' 
among poorer minority teenagers. It is a 
demographic trend that criminologists say 
could mean a further increase in violence and 
an increase in the number of stales treating 
young criminals as adults.

Nominee Pledges to ‘Make Law Work for People’

The Associated Press 

WASHINGTON — Introduced 
to Americans as a jurist “with the 
bean and head of a reformer." the 
new Supreme Court nominee. Ste- 
phen G. Breyer, promised Monday 
to cut through legal jargon and 
“make law work for people." 

Sounding a theme of President 
Bill Qin ton’s political campaigns. 


the Boston appellate judge said,

rite all the current cynicism, 
le can work together and gov- 
ernment can better the lives of ordi- 
nary ci tizens. ” 

Mr. Clin ion formally introduced 
Judge Breyer in a White House 
ceremony three days after ending a 
search to replace Justice Harry 
Blackmun, who is retiring. Judge 
Breyer was unable to attend the 
announcement on Friday. 

Opening the campaign to con- 
firm Judge Breyer, the president 
said his nominee would forge coali- 
tions on the Supreme Court, deftly 
interpret the Constitution and pay 
heed to the needs of ordinary citi- 
zens. He said Judge Breyer would 
“grace the court with greatness," 

Judge Breyer is getting raves 
from Republican and Democratic 
senators. Mr. Clinton said, “Judge 
Breyer will bring to the court a 
wen-recognized and impressive 
ability to build bridges in the pur- 
suit of justice:" 

Mr. Clinton was later asked 
about criticism that he raved in to 
Republicans, including Senator 
Oran Hatch of Utah, in selecting 
Judge Breyer. 


“That just isn’t right," Mr. Clin- 
io n said. “I believe in this guy,” 
Senator Howard M. Metzen- 
baum. Democrat of Ohio, provided 
tbe only sour note, saying while 
Judge Breyer was still circulating 
among guests that the Boston judge 
was not supportive of consumers 
and “tbe fact that tbe president had 
to dear it with Republicans is 
somewhat embarrassing.” 


He stud Judge Breyer had ruled 
on 16 separate antitrust cases on 
(he side of business. 

Judge Breyer thanked his family 
and mentioned his immigrant 
roots: his maternal grandfather, a 
Polish cobbler who arrived at Filk 
Island in 1900. 

In a rather lengthy explanation 
of his judicial style, Judge Breyer 
said: 


“There's a whole mass of materi- 
al that somehow, sometimes, in 
some way is supposed to fit togeth- 
er. And what is it supposed to do, 
seen as a whole? What’s it’s sup- 
posed to do, seen as a whole, is 
allow all people, all people to live 
together m a society where they 
have so many different views, so 


many different needs that to live 
together in a way that is more har- 
monious, that is belter, so that they 
can work productively together.” 


He added, “I will certainly try to 
make law work for people because 
that is it’s defining purpose in a 
government of the people.”

Pakistan Reported 
To Arm Insurgents 

By John Ward Anderson 

WathtHgteitt pn*t Service 

MUZAFFARABAD. Pakistan — Pakistan has resumed arming, 
training and providing logistical support to militants fighting Indian 
security forces in the state of Kashmir, less than a year after 
convincing the U.S. government (hat it had adopted a hands-off 
policy there, according to Pakistani military sources. 

The Pakistan Army's Inter Services Intelligence directorate and its 
Field Intelligence Unit are coordinating the shipment of arms from 
the Pakistani side of Kashmir to the Indian side, where Muslim 
insurgents are waging a protracted war. the sources said. 

They said the Pakistani military was also occasionally helping to 
train militants and coordinate their Tight against India. India and 
Pakistan each control pan of Kashmir while claiming the entire 
region. 

Pakistani political and government officials denied any active role 
in aiming or training militants in Indian Kashmir, saying their 
support was limited to aiding the insurgents through political and 
diplomatic initiatives. 

The United States considers Kashmir one of the world's prime 
flash points for nuclear war. India and Pakistan — both of which are 
capable or making nuclear bombs — have fought three wars since 
achieving independence 47 years ago, and two were over Kashmir. 

The Pakistani military sources — including two serving and two 
recently retired army officials familiar with the workings of intelli- 
gence directorate and its Kashmir operations — said Pakistan had 
suspended active support for the insurgency Iasi year when the 
United States threatened to add it to the list of countries sponsoring 
terrorism. Such a move would have required automatic severing of 
U.S.-Pakistan aid and business ties. 

During the hiarus. Pakistan “privatized” its Kashmiroperaiions. 
tunneling support to the militants through nongovernmental organi- 
zations that were often run by retired army and intelligence officials, 
the sources said. 

After the United States decided not to add Pakistan to the terrorist 
list, however, the army early this year resumed its active Kashmir 
operations, although at a much reduced level, the sources said. 

fn its annual report on terrorism released this month, the U.S. 
State Department confirmed that “there were credible reports in 
1993 of official Pakistani support to Kashmiri militants.’' but offi- 
cials believe the renewed aid is at a much reduced level. 

Many private organizations continue to send arms to the insur- 
gents in operations overseen by the Pakistani Army, the sources said. 
A recently retired army official said, however, that no private 
organization had ever been permitted to launch an independent 
operation against Indian security forces from Pakistani soil. 

“It always remained in safe, official bands,” be said. 

Shafqat Kakakbel, director of the Pakistani Foreign Ministry's 
South Asia bureau, said it would be “impossible” for the army to halt 
all smuggling of weapons from Pakistan to Indian Kashmir bv 
private groups. 

But he said he had seen nothing to suggest that the intelligence 
directorate had been “given the role to get involved in these things.” 

In the past however, the intelligence directorate has engaged in 
rogue operations without the knowledge of the government and the 
U.S. decision not to add Pakistan to the terrorist List last year was 
based on the government's good faith effort to curtail the military's 
covert aid program for Kashmiri militants, according to Western 
diplomats. 

It is unclear whether Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto approved the 
resumption of active assistance to the insurgents. Political analysts 
noted that she had given the army — which played a role in ousting 
her from office in 1990 during biff first term — wide latitude since 
returning to power last fall. 

Once an autonomous state ruled by a prince. Kashmir today is 
divided, with the western third controlled by Pakistan and the 
eastern two-thirds controlled by India. 

There are hundreds of instances of firings across the border every 
year, resulting in dozens of civilian and military deaths. The dispute 
has blossomed into a full-blown civil war in Indian Kashmir, where 
about a dozen people are killed every day in clashes between 
militants and Indian security forces. 

While the area used to enjoy an unusual degree of autonomy from 
the centra] Indian government and was relatively tranquQ. over the 
decades India has stripped Kashmir of its autonomy, staged rigged 
elections to capture control of the local government and. when 
violence erupted, sent in security forces that today number more 
than 500.000 troops.

Kentucky, the ranking minority member of the 
appropriations subcommittee on foreign opera- 
tions. 

“When Singapore policy is made by an 18- 
year-old from Dayton and Haitian policy by 
Randall Robinson's refusal to eat,” be said, U is 
“the be ginnin g of the end of bipartisanship that 
can be expected from Republicans.” 

Some Democrats are distancing themselves 
from what they regard as policies that could 
explode in their faces. Others' want to nudge, or 
if necessary bludgeon, the administration in 
new directions. 

Republicans, silenced earlier by the message 
from the 1992 elections that Americans cared 
mere about domestic issues than foreign policy, 
now sense political opportunities in question- 
ing Mr. Clinton's ability to steer a strong and 
safe course for the country in a world of post- 
Coid War perils. 

But, with some exceptions, they are united in 
flinching from the risks of spelling out what 
those policies should be. “They're afraid they'll 
be wrong in three weeks." said Senator Joseph 
R. Biden Jr- Democrat of Delaware, a Foreign 
Relations Committee member. “No one wants 
to go on the line.” 

Senator Richard G. Lugar, Republican of 
Indiana, also a member of the committee, said. 
"There’s almost no political sex appeal to issues 
like Bosnia.” 


man, Lee H. Hamilton, Democrat of Indiana, 
observed, “The preferred stance is to let the 
president make the decisions and. if it goes welL 
praise him, and if it doesn’t, criticize him.” 

During the Cold War, lines were more easily 
drawn and national security interest more 
clearly asserted, lawmakers say. And. during 
the administrations of Presidents Ronald Rea- 
gan and George Bush. Republicans had a clear 
stake in protecting a Republican president 
from a Democralic-con trolled Congress, while 
Democrats had a natural interest in challenging 
Republican policies. 

More often than not. Congress was trying to 
curb what it regarded as excesses, like aid to the 
Nicaraguan contras, rather than “push the 
president into a policy,” as Mr. Lugar described 
the current posture in Congress. 

No less preoccupied than the administration 
with domestic policy. Congress pulled its for- 
eign policy punches during the administration's 
first year, when the Senate challenged his poli- 
cies on Somalia. Bosnia and Haiti and then 
backed off in a series of face-saving compro- 
mises. 

It was the Senate's votes last Thursday on 
ending the arms embargo against Bosnia 'that 
seemed to signal a potentially serious turn- 
about. 

Glossing over the contradictory resolutions, 
many senators said the administration ran a 
strong risk of inviting another legislative effort 


to force unilateral action unless it persuades

Back to Israel as Talks Go Ain 


By Steven Greenhouse 

JVew- York. Tima Scntre - . i. 

JERUSALEM — Negotiations between .Israel, and 
Syria intensified Monday as Secretary of Stale Warren- 
M. Christopher , brought Syria's response to an Israeli 
peace plan to Jerusalem. 

Mr. 'Christopher delayed his flight from Damascus 
to Israel by six horns so he could get Syria's foreign, 
minister, Farouk Share, to clarify pans of the Syrian 
counterproposal 

Mr. Christopher reported do specific progress from 
his meetings with Mr. Share and President Hafez 
Assad, but he said he was pleased that Syria remained 
seriously engaged in the peace process. . 

“We are at the beginning of a very serious process 
that involves high stakes for bolb cwn tries,” be said. 
“My job is to try to make sure that we understand each 
other as well as possible and sol leave uncertainties.” 

U.S. officials said Mr. Assad presented a compre- 
hensive counterproposal thax.covered issues like nor- 
malization, riming , security arrangemenls and Israel's 
withdrawal from the Golan Heights, captured in the 
AralFlsraeli war of 2967. — 

Mr. Christopher met late Monday in Jerusalem with 
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Syrian 1 radio said Mr. 


FED: 

Up? Or Way Up? 

Continued from Page 1 
traders drove up long-term rates, 
and when the Fed didn’t move in 
March, they drove than up again. 

Unfortunately, clarifying its in- 
tentions is not the strong point of 
any central bank, and economists 
rather than psychologists sit on the 
Federal Open . Market Committee. 

In its own fashion, the Fed has 
already made its goal dear — a 
“neutral” rather than an "accomo- 
dative” monetary policy. What the 
laner meant was dear a 3 percent 
federal funds rate. This was in ef- 
fect all last year to force-feed the 
U^. economy, and h did — to a 7 
percent growth rate last falL 

The Fed has since raised the 
funds rate to 3.75 percent, but it 
has not disclosed what rale it thinks 
will make monetary policy “neu- 
tral" or high enough to have no 
effect one way or another on the 
economy. After all it was the Fed 
that got the economy going and 
now wants to keep it from going 
too fast 

On Wall Street traders are ex- 
pecting the fed funds rate, to be 
raised 50 basis paints, to 425 per- 
cent and the discount rate, at 
which the Fed lends funds to com- 
mercial banks, to be raised to 350 
patent, from the current 3.0 per- 
cent. 

“Inflation is not the issue for 
policy so much as persistent evi- 
dence of economic strength,” wrote 
John Lipsky, of Salomon Brothers, 
in his weekly Comments on Credit 
He said he suspected the Fed would 
move cautiously by only 25 basis 
points on Tuesday and then move 
up again a Few weeks later by the ' 
same amount 

But there are as many predic- 
tions as there are theories of how 
the central bank can best get the 
markets to understand what is do- 
ing. David Wyss, of DRI/McGraw 
Hu, said he thought the Fed would 
“show more backbone” and lift 
rates 50 basis points and then apply 
shock therapy of another 50 basis 
points during the summer. 

Darwin Beck, of CS First Bos- 
ton, said he thought receut statis- 
tics on inflation, retail sales, and 
industrial production pointed to a 
more tolerable rate of growth, 
which would stay the Fed’s Hand at 
25 basis points. But he added that 
the bond market would probably 
be disappointed with that size of 
cut and traders would send long- 
term rales up again. 

David Monro, of High Frequen- 
cy Economics, is looking for only 
25 basis points to be added to the 
Ted funds rate, but a full percentage 
point to be tacked onto the dis- 
count rate “to get everyone’s atten- 
tion.” 

Interspersed with the inevitable 
grumbling, be hopes, there will 
then be a discussion illuminating 
the Fed’s real purposes. The central 
bank hopes so, too.

BEYOND PEACE 

By Richard Nixon. TUustrated. 
262 pages. $23. Random House. 

Reviewed by Christopher 
Lehmarm-Haupt 

O F the dead speak nothing bui 
good, it is said. 

But a book remains alive, even 
when published posthumously. So 
to any reader impatient with the 
recent canonization of the 37 ih 
president of the Urtiied States, the 
first to be forced to reagn from 
office, let it be said that there is lois 
to find fault with in Richard Nix- 
on’s ICtth and final book, “Beyond 
Peace.” which he completed just a 
few weeks before he died. 

He offers no apologies or expres- 
sions of rue in this final summing 
up of his views, nor any acknowl- 
edgment of error. There is nothing 
even personal, unless you count his 
observation that Boris Yeltsin's in- 
clination to become depressed after 
winning a battle “is not an uncom- 
mon characteristic of leaders." Or 
his remark that “those of us who 
complain about the behavior of to- 
day's media must remember that 
similar complaints are as dd as the 
republic” 

That familiar dang of inauthen- 
lirity sounds in these pages. You 
encounter his old tendency to ag- 
_grandize: He calls "the defeat of

Iraqi aggression in the Persian Gulf 
War in the spring of 1991" one “of 

the greatest events cvf the 20th centu- 
ry," and he writes that “America is 
the greatest, most successful social 
e x periment in the history of man.” 

You find so many examples of 
strained quotation that you picture 
Nixon sitting in his study crushed 
by volumes of Aquinas, Irving Bab- 
bitt, Isaiah Berlin. Brandeis, Burke, 
Churchill Lord Curzon, Engels. 
Goethe, Hobbes. Eric Hoffcr, Ib- 
sen. Kant. Malraux, Nietzsche. 
Pushkin, Schumpeter. Toynbee. 
Weber, Wellington and. of course, 
de Tocqueriile, to mention but a 
handful of the heavyweights died 
in these pages. 

And be exercises his old habit of 
vividly recalling how great leaders 


of the past sat him on their knees 
and told him such-and-such. 

"It was the Russians who defeat- 
ed Napoleon," he writes, “and as 
President Eisenhower once told 
me, it was the Russians who. after 
incredible suffering and sacrifice, 
played the rn disposable and pri- 
mary role in defeating Hitler." as if 
someone with Eisenhower's per- 
spective were required to reveal tins 
not ttactly-well-hidden secret 

Still for all its irritations. “Be- 
yond Peace" is Nixon's best book. 
The former president was always 
strongest writing about foreign pol- 
icy, and the present book was com- 
pleted shortly after the much-pub- 
licized visit to the Russia during 
which he met with several opposi- 


tion leaden, over President Yelt- 
sin's objections. 

Where Nixon tended to slight the 
Soviet Union in favor of China in 
some of his earlier books, here he 
‘treats post-Soviet Russia in con- 
crete and arresting detail. 

Nixon even includes a touch of 
unwonted humor in an account of 
an interview in March with Gener- 
al Alexander V. Rmsfcoi that was 
made difficult by “the simulta- 
neous and totally incomprehensi- 
ble conversation between two huge 
parrots in separate cages in the 
middle of Rutskofs sitting room.” 

Nixon adds. “The birds were not 
speaking English, and I knew 
enough Russian to know they 
weren't speaking Russian.” As it 
turned out. “Tfcey spoke only Ma- 
laysian.” 

Out of these and more weighty 
details grow the larger messages of 
Nixon’s book. These are roughly 
that the end of the Cold War repre- 
sented a victory of .American free- 
market capitalism over Soviet com- 
maud-economy communism, and 
that because the terms of this con- 
flict are soil relevant to the world, 
the United States must continue to 
exert international leadership by 
waging the peace as actively as it 
conducted the war. 

Niton is less provocative and 
more predictable when he cranes 
borne and takes a tour of domestic 


issues. True, he makes you stop and 
think when he points out that the 
national debt ought to be reduced 
nM by tax increases but by cuts in 
the federal budget, 40 percent of 
which is devoted to noo- means- 
tested entitlements, or payments to 
those who have the means to take 
care of their own needs. 

But such arresting specifics are 
few and far between. The problem, 
as Nixon readily admits, is that 
setting the goals of peace is a good 
deal harder than defining the ob- 
jectives of war. 

Nixon believes that the ultimate 

solution to the Bis that beset Amer- 
ica is a return to traditions like 
church and proper child-rearing. 
Bui he is hardpuuo explain how to 
undertake this spiritual journey, so 
he is forced to fall bade on mere 
exhortation and assertion. 

He writes seemingly without iro- 
ny that cannot solve oar pro b- 
ions “unless wc return to the prin- 
ciples that made this country 
great” You wonder if he felt any 
twinge of discomfort wheeling out 
a diene as worn as this one. Or was 
be so moved by the idea that tic 
words struck him as if newly mint- 
ed? 

Reading “Beyond Peace,” you 
end up pondering the familiar mys- 
teries of Richard Nixon once again.

MY THANH AN, Vietnam — John Foggin. 
once a sergeant first class in the U.S. Aflsjr who 
spent five hard years fighting the Vieteoiig. he 
has buried the past and found a home among 
his former enemies in this remote hamlet in the 
Mekong Delta. 

Hidden in a rural palm grove across a river 
south of the market town of Ben Tre is an oasis 
of modest luxury where Mr. Foggin and his 
Vietnamese wife. Lan, plan to spend the rest of 
their days earning a living as cafe owners. 

Trees shade a spacious cafe patio shared by 
the Foggins with their Vietnamese neighbors 
and customers, and amenities in the Foggins* 
home include air-conditioners, television, two 
telephones and a fax machine from which they 
can directly dial friends in Vietnam or back in 
the States. Water diverted from a nearby at 
fills an ornamental pool in a pleasant garden. 

To his neighbors, Mr. Foggin, 54, a tall, 
blood American, is more than a mere curiosity. 
He is regarded by residents like Tun Tan Due. a 
Ben Tre hardware dealer, as a symbol of the 
healing process that is slowly closing the gulf 
that has lingered between Vietnam and die 
United States since the Communist victory in 
1975.

“It is possible for them to take 
samples when a package solution is

and the United States, he sa id. 

In Washington, senators on Sun-

move around the country freely.

Mr. Foggin has buBi adin road and a wood- 
en bridge to make his Ngoc Lan Cafe more 
accessible to visitors, and the refreshments, 
dancing and foreign ambience attract crowds of 
young people from Ben Tre on weekends. 

Mr. Foggin says many of his customers are 
former Vietcong guerrillas who come to swap 
war stories with him and show off their scars. 

He says a few people in Ben Tre still resent

that you have to speak English.” 

Mr. Foggin’s command of the Vietnamese 
language is shaky, and his wife translates and 
handles details of the family business.

know I won’t be the last. There’s something 
about this country that draws vou back." 

The Foggins have no car. But like most of 
their neighbors, they get around on the family 
motorbike. Electric power outages have become 
less frequent, and there no longer are compul- 
sory blackouts on weekends. 


Foggin now has a military pension, supple- 
he saves as a civilian con- 


Last year, the Hanoi government dropped 

id fer- 


tile requirement that all Vietnamese anc ... 
eign residents obtain permits for traveling from

sanction expert in Saudi Arabia and Turkey. 

The Foggins were living in San Diego in 1989 
when they deeded to lake advantage of newly 
relaxed restrictions on visits by American citi- 
zens and see what life in Vietnam would be like. 

They say they were drawn to Vietnam not 
only because rural life in the Mekong Delta was 
cheap and relatively easy, but also because 
robberies and c riminal violence had tainted 
their lives in the United States. 

Mrs. Foggin came to visit her relatives near 


this hamlet in 1989, and her husband joined her 
during another extended visit in 1991. Last 
July, they sealed here “for good,” bought some 
land and built their cafe and house. 

For the lime being, the Foggins are living 
here on temporary visas that require them to 
leave the country every three months, but they 
expect to be issued resident visas eventually. 

Meanwhile, they say they have no problems 
with the local People’s Committee or the other 
Communist authorities; there is no U.S. Con- 
sulate in Vietnam to aid or protect American 
citizens. 

Mr. Foggjn looks back on the war with mixed 
feelings. 

“We could have won the war if we’d had a 
consistent policy.” be said, “but as it was, I 
think the war was wrong. Now, I think we ought 
to be helping Vietnam. Japanese and Thai busi- 
nesses are exploiting Vietnam's need for ma- 
chinery and technology, often selling the Viet- 
namese secondhand or defective products at 
high prices. Americans can provide honest val- 
ue." i 

Mr. Foggin argues that far-reaching reforms x 
are needed in Vietnam's administrative poli- 
cies. “Corruption today is even worse than it « 
was in the old days,” he said. : 

He says the Hanoi government has also let ■* 
educational standards decline perilously. 
“Children are supposed to be in school from T 3 
to 1 2 A.M^ but most of them get out early and * 
many don't attend classes at all. Illiteracy has J 
become a real problem. Teachers make only . 
$25 a month, so they must find other incomes to ' 
live." 

Despite the couple's relative isolation from >p 
such th i n g s as medical care, “it’s a pretty nice rr 
life here, and we mean to stay,” he said. j c 

“My wife's sister is buried out in the little x 
cemetery back there,” he said, “and there are a 
places for us, too, when our times come."

war. Mr. Man acknowledged that 
he had served in the Sooth Viet-

the gnhtia knew who Mr. Tan was 
and tried to trade hhn down. “If I

comment provoked a loud reaction 
and some derisive hoots from oth- 
ers in the crowd.

asked. They became friends, he re-

An unexpected right loomed in 
front of us— a large, modem villa, 
stucco over bock, its air condition-

that surrounded the structure. The

A Boost for Kohl 


The European parliamentary elections re- 
call Winston CburchiQ’s complaint about a 
pudding, that it lacked a theme. 

A swing to the right among voters in the 12- 
nation European Union? Well, yes, except 
that Socialist parties emerged with the most 
seats in the European Parliament: 200 out of 
567. True, Italy’s former Communist Party 
did worse than expected, causing the resigna- 
tion of its leader. But former Communists in 
Eastern Germany did better than expected on 
their old turf, w inning a surprising 40 percent 
in what used to be East Berlin. 

The European Parliament has only limited 
powers and is far from bong the legislative 
seat of a true European Union. But these 
elections offer a useful barometer of political 
shifts. And this poD produced a big and unex- 
pected winner. Chancellor Helmut Kohl of 
Germany. Hat could be important not just 
for Europe but for President BQl Ctinton. 

Outside Germany, protest voters punished 
longtime incumbents for failing to end a persis- 
tent recession. But Mr. Kohl's Christian Demo- 
crats bdd their ground, taking 39 percent of the 
vote, some seven points more than the opposi- 
tion Social Democrats. The far-right-wing Re- 
publican Party crumbled, while the Greens, an 
environment parly competing for left-wing 
votes, increased its share to 10 percent 
This was an excellent outcome for Mr. Kohl 


who in October Faces what was supposed to be 
his toughest national contest The luck of rota- 
tion will give the chancellor a further boost — 
in July, Germany assumes the Eun^ean Union 
presidency, mmnfng that ins ample image will 
be d ominating prime time through the cam- 
paign. Thus the most generally underestimated 
eg European leaders seems poised to become 
the Continent's strongest political figure. 

Mr. Kohl's skill as a horse trader will soon 
be tried, at the European Union conference in 
Corfu on June 24 and 25. The main task will 
be finding a successor to Jacques Ddors, “Mr. 
Europe," who beads the Union's Brussels bu- 
reaucracy. The two leading contenders are 
Belgian Prime Minister Jean-Luc Debaenc 
and his Dutch counterpart, Ruud Lubbers. 

Nationalist opposition, especially in Brit- 
ain, has stalled the drive to greater unity. Bui 
if the European Union cannot deepen, it can 
still widen. In a weekend referendum, two 
ont of three Austrians wanted to seek mem- 
bership. which improves odds in Sweden. 
Finland and Norway. Adding new members 
will not resolve arguments over a common 
currency or a common initiative to end the 
slaughter in the Balkans. But new members 
could restore lost vitality to the European 
Union, which still remains discouragingly 
stuck in the lift-off stage.

A Nasty Nuclear Mess 


At the heavily polluted sites where the U.S. 
government produced nuclear weapons for 
nearly 50 years, a great cleanup is now under 
way. Nobody can say what it will cost. The 
country has not made up its mind on the 
fundamental issues — how clean these sites 
should be and how fast the job should be done. 
This year the Energy Department wQi spend S6 
billion on this work, with similar outlays sched- 
uled as far ahead as the eye can see. Uneasy 
about these huge costs. Congress asked its 
Congressional Budget Office to take a look. In 
response, the CBO has offered a useful discus- 
sion of the nature of environmental risk. 

In some places it would be safest to do 
nothing for many years, leaving installations 
isolated and guarded until well into the next 
century when radiation levels will have de- 
clined. That is what the Energy Department 
has decided to do with eight reactors at Han- 
ford, Washington, that for decades produced 
plutonium and other ingredients of nuclear 
explosives. To remove the reactor cores and 
dism antle the buildings 75 years from now 
would cost one-third as much, with one-third 
the exposure to radiation of the people doing 
the work, as doing it immediately. 

Sometimes the cleanup creates risks — when, 
for example, bunting dirt to destroy pollutants 
may blow toxic residues into the air. Unless 
hazardous nmterials are likely to leak into the 
atmosphere or water supplies, leaving them 
alone is often worth considering. The CBO 
suggests lhai the Energy Department may of- 
ten be more Ekdy to waste money by moving 
too fast rather than too slowly. In ma ny pla ces 
it has signed agreements with the Environmen- 
tal Protection Agency and slate regulators 
promising action on a timetable. But some- 
times there is no effective technology to cany it 
ouL In those cases it might do beuer to renego- 
tiate the agreements and provide time for the 
development of belter methods. 


Although the nuclear weapons plants have 
reputations for toxic pollution, the CBO cites 
EPA studies concluding that hazardous waste 
sites present less danger to health than many 
more common threats — indoor air pollution 
for one, pesticide residues in food for another. 
The way the federal govemman is currently 
allocating its spending on environmental haz- 
ards is not closely related to the risks as they 
are assessed by the experts it has consulted. 

That raises a question about the annual 
outlay of $6 billion for this nuclear cleanup. It 
is the right figure only if the money is buying 
more health protection than it could if aimed 
at other kinds of pollution. Having spent half 
a century creating the messes at the nuclear 
installations, the country has now committed 
itself to correcting them. But in some of these 
cases it may be wiser and safer as a matter of 
environmental policy to leave them alone for 
another half-century.

Neither Warren Christopher as secretary of 
state nor Anthony Lake as national security 
adviser has made any significant impression 
on the international diplomatic and security 
community. They have not articulated a com- 
pelling vision of America’s future place in the 
world. They have failed to generate confi- 
dence at home or abroad that the State De- 
partment or the White House situation room 
are in the hands of people who reach firm, 
reliable decisions and focus Mr, Clinton's 
attention where it ought to be. 

The administration urgently needs to put 
forward a short list of wbac foreign policy 
problems really matter to America today. 
Ticking off the worthy goals of democracy, 
markets and expanding trade and a geograph- 
ical catalogue of Europe. Asia and the Middle 
East will not do. Focusing on key countries 
like Russia, China and Japan and specific 
issues like the World Trade Organization, 
nonproliferation and oil security would. 

The administration also needs to be far 
clearer on what it is prepared to do to resolve 
these problems. It has endlessly debated ibe 
issue of multilateral versus unilateral military 
action. But most of the problems that belong 
on the short list do not lend themselves to 
military approaches. 

The latest staff changes, coming on top of 
the promotion of Strobe Talbott to deputy 
secretary of state, strengthen the Clinton ad- 
ministration’s foreign policy team, but only at 
midlevd posts. These appointees could contrib- 
ute to a fresh start but direction will have to 
come from the president and, probably, from 
new leaden in one or more of the top jobs.

trial economies in recent months. Because of the 
central bankers' abiding and unbalanced fear of 
inflation, declining unemployment rates have 
become a hair trigger for raising interest rates. 

Even if they have not noticed it, most Ameri- 

Central bankers see a sustained 
decline in unemployment as a 
terrible development . 

cans have recently felt the impact of the jobs-

pushed up rates (measured in “basis points”) 
through tne spring while unemployment moved 
down. The home purchaser’s mortgage payments 
have gone up, and businesses seem to be restrain- 
ing expansion and hiriag, as the Fed desired. 

The relationship is neither totally new nor a 
one-way street. Interest rates are generally lowered 
at times of soaring unemployment in the hope of 
stimulating the economy. Few complain then. 

But two things are new. One is the high level of 
unemployment that needs to be sustained in 
developed economies for Fed Chairman Alan 
Greenspan and his international colleagues to 
feel secure in their jobs and reputations. Second 
is the politicians’ acquiescence in this monetar- 
ist strategy which makes full employment not a 


In Europe, the central banks' threshold number 
is closer to 10 percent. Anything less is a cause 
for gloom in the markets and action by the 
central bankas, who see a sustained decline in 
unemployment as a terrible development: a sig- 
nal that 19706-style inflation is on its way back. 

The bankers and fund managers resemble rid

Has changed. They build a Maginot Line of high 
long-term interest rates instead of adapting mone- 
tarypoijcy to a world in wind) the greater barriers 
to economic renewal are unemployment and lack 
eg public investment in productive enterprises. 

“This is tilting at windmills.” says the New York 
investment banka Felix Rohatyn. Market heavy- 
weights Eke Mr. Rohatyn, a Democrat, and Pete 
Peterson, a Republican, support the objectives of 
fighting inflation and deficit reduction. But they 
say they have to be coupled with sensible in- 
creased spending for national infrastructure to cut 
both short-term and king-term unemployment. 

American policymakers have in fact moved 
from striving for full employment (in the 1960s 1 
to accepting 4 percent unemployed as a tolerable 
feature of the labor market (in the 1970s) to 
today’s 6 percent threshold with tittle public 
discussion. This hidden assumption about the 
“right” level of unemployment ties Reaganomics 
to OintoiKunics, and links Purl Volcker’s poli- 
cies to those of his successor, Mr. Greenspan. 

“Not long ago, 4 percent growth and 4 percent 
unemployment were not seen as something to 


wbny about," says Mr. Rofcatan. “In recent - 
years* technology, restructuring and foreign 
competition have pot significant downward pres- 
sure on prices and wages. It is Qkgical then to 
change the parameters and meat 3 percent 
growth and 6 percent unemployment as danger 
sgnals forinflation.'* 

Why areihe politicians quiet about this when 
the investment bankets speak out? They seem 
cowed byths success of Ross Perot’s defirit- 
cutting danagoguay and by the dangers of 
seeming soft an inflation. 

The influence: that Mr. Greenspan seems to 
exert on JSJ dinton is one theme of . Bob ■ 
Wood wartfs . timely new book “The Agenda." 
The portrait of President Clinton is a familiar 
Southern one of the responsible populist — his 
heart is with thc.fitik man, but the banker just 
won’t let him do the right thing. So the presi- 
dent reluctantly agrees to put ms first priority - 
on fighting the deficit and inflation instead of 
pushing for the billions in public investment in 
education and other infrastructure projects., 
pledged in Mr 1992 campaign. . : - 

The Economist argued recently that neither 
tite administration nor the book examines the 
premises of that “false dichotomy." The maga- 
zine added, “Not only are deficit reduction and 
big public investments not mutually exclusive: 
the latter ate n tore or less impassible without the 
former,” and “tins brutal truth escapes the politi- 
cal people" around Mr. Clinton. 

Mr. Rohatyn is more succinct “Unless you 
have growth you can not reduce the deficit.” 

Growth is measured in jobs as well as in ■stock 
and bond prices. Low inflation rates purchased 
fay high unemployment will turn out to have 
been a dubious bargain.

Three Steps to Tame Tribalism and Unify Europe 


N EW YORK — This is a pro- 
blematic moment in the long 
history of Europe. Only a short while 
back, the magic number 1992 
aroused expectations of a vibrant 
new Europe, united, more prosper- 
ous, more undaunted than ever be- 
fore: Today the dream of European 
unity seems more distant than it was 
a decade or two decades ago. 

What has befallen that dream? The 
answer is plain: nationalism. 

Nationalism can work for good or 
ill according to the circumstances. It 
was nationansi resistance that defeat- 
ed (hose, like Napoleon and Hitler, 
who tried to unify Europe by force of 
arms. It is nationalist feeling (hat 
today frustrates leaders whose bene- 
volent vision is to unify Europe by 
shared interest and mutual benefit, 
by persuasion and consent 
Nor has the end of the Cdd War 
helped. The Soviet threat was a po- 
tent factor in the promotion of Euro- 
pean unity. As the threat evaporated, 
so did die fell need to unite against a 
totalitarian energy — or even against 
the savagery unleashed in what once 
was Yugoslavia. Nothing has more 
discredited the vision of European 
unity than Europe’s impotence be- 
fore the Bosnian tragedy. 

As a Yugoslav political scientist 
well said — and who should know 
better? —“minorities are going to be 
an add test for all post-Communist 
societies. With communism all but 
disappearing, tribal instincts are 
coming back" And the hostility of

one tribe toward another is among 
the most andent of human reactions. 

On every side today, in every sec- 
tion of the troubled planet, ethnic 
and religious fanaticism is breaking 
nations. ‘The virus of tribalism,” 
says The Economist, risks “becoming 
the AIDS of international politics — 
lying dormant for years, then Oaring 
up to destroy countries.” 

High technology is shrinking tbe 
globe and overriding traditional 


boundaries. But integrating pressures 
drive people to seek refuge from glob- 
al currents beyond their control and 
understanding. Tbe more people feel 
themselves adrift in a cold, imperson- 
al, anonymous world, the more des- 
perately they embrace some warm, 
familiar , intelligible, protective hu- 
man unit — the more they crave a 
politics of identity. 

Integration and disintegration thus 
are the opposites that feed on each 
other. Tbe more tbe world integrates, 
the more people ding to their own in 
groups increasingly defined in these 
post-ideological days by ethnic and 
reOgious emotions. 

Yugoslavia is only the most mur- 
derous portent of a darkening future. 
What was once tbe Soviet Union con- 
tains 104 distinct nationalities, 22 of 
which have populations of more than 
a milli on. Twenty-five million Rus- 
sians live outside Russia. The Insti- 
tute of Geography of the Russian 
Academy of Sciences tells us that 


there are now more than 160 border 
disputes in tbe ex-Soviet Union. 

Two milli on Hungarians Eve in 
Romania, 700,000 in Slovakia. In 
ah. 30 percent of the Hungarians 
live outside Hungary. And 300,000 
thousand Germans and 200,000 
Ukrainians lire is Poland. Nor is 
Western Europe lacking in ethnic, 
religious and linguistic enmities. 

According to the 1993 UN report 
on refugees, more than one in every 
120 people on the. globe is a refugee. 
It is estimated (hat 25 tmBion people 
will migrate into the EaropeanUwon 
in the next decade, mostly people of 
alien colors, creeds and customs. Xe- 
nophobia and racism are already the 
rising themes in European politics. 

How are democratic societies to 
cope with ethnic, racial and religious 
heterogeneity? 

The United States had the advan- 
tage of settlers who (mostly) came to 
its shores precisely in order to acquire 
a new identity. Citizenship has been 
defined in terms not of ethnic origin 
but of political ideals, however im- 
perfectly we Americans have lived up 
to those ideals. 

We have developed traditions and 
agencies of assimilation. The melting 
pot, though uneven in its workings, 
nas created a new nationality, epluri- 
bus union. As Gunnar Myrdai wrote

The Fast-Eiection Europe Get Moving and Lock In Europe’s East =

It is difficult to say whether Europe cranes 
out stronger or weaker from the European 
Parliament elections. The drop in voter partici- 
pation demonstrates that the cheers of Eu- 
rope’s fans are getting weaker. Europe's impo- 
tence in the face of the Yugoslav tragedy, its 
economic decline and tbe spread of unemploy- 
ment have not sufficed to arouse interest The 
new political landscape, in any case, will bring 
a toideocy to give precedence to the advan- 
tages of a wider market, postponing the dead- 
lines for the federal constitution, monetary 
union, common foreign and defense policies, 
die Social Charter and die rights of citizens.

D resden — it wiu take 30 

years to rebuild the Frauen- 
kirefae, the 18th century church that 
was this city’s proudest monument 
until a massive Allied air raid in the 
dosing days of World War U de- 
stroyed practically everything But 
the work has started, stone by num- 
bered stone. 

The decision to restore Dresden to 
the baroque magnificence that 
earned it die name of Florence of the 
North is being carried out Already 
palaces, museums, broad terraces 
alone the stately Elbe begin to 
match the old paintings of the capi- 
tal of Saxony, once one of Europe's 
richest kingdoms. 

This is at ibe heart of what reunifi- 
cation means to Germany, restoring 
the link with the past and with its 
European neighborhood. The Com- 
munist East German regime had fi- 
nally started some reconstruction in 
the 1980s. Bui for a long time it 
deliberately left tire nibble and dam- 
age and built only Stalin-styie atroc- 
ities to mark the break with die past 
and recall the city’s passage of horror. 

As Premier Kiirt Biedoikopf puts it. 
until the collapse of communism the 
Federal Republic was the easternmost 
part of Western Europe. Now “Ger- 
many is the center of the West." That 
is meant psychologically and histori- 
cally as well as geographically. “With a 
Polish Pope, how can it be denied that 
Poland is part of Western Europe?” 

Mr. Biedcnkopf is a West German 
Christian Democratic politician who 
came east to help and is now the most 
popular and successful leader in the 
area. It will take up to another de- 
cade. he thinks, for the “neu Lander" 
of the former East Germany lo be- 


By Flora Lewis 

come competitive with the West. But 
he is optimistic, despite strains and 
resentments on both sides, because 
there is so much help. “Half tbe mon- 
ey we spend in Saxony," he said, 
“comes from the West" There are 
huge pro Wans, but compared with 
the rest of ec-Communist Europe, the 
situation, he said, “is ideal" 

Jan Urban, a former Czech dissi- 
dent. agrees, pointing out that in 
addition to money and guidance, 
what were German Communist lands 
automatically acquired a judicial sys- 
tem and a set of laws to underpin 
transformation to democracy and ibe 
market Tbe other countries have to 
struggle with that 

The lessons of his special experi- 
ence are evident for Mr. Bicdenkopf. 
“The noneconomic factors are the 
most important, and the most diffi- 
cult.” be said. “The one thing you 
can’t speed op is learning. You have to 
transfer knowledge in a way that bol- 
sters people's injured pride and makes 
them feel part of community." 

From this he draws the conviction, 
that at least the Visegrad countries — 
Poland, the r«yh RnpabBc, Slovakia 
and Hungary — most orickly be as- 
sured of inclusion in me European 
Union and of NATO’s concern for 
ibdr security. Otherwise there will be 
tension on Germany’s borders, tor- 
rents of migration, and instability 
that will hurl the whole of Europe. 

In the West, integration could start 
with economics because there was a 
common economic system arid the 
politics were harder to merge- But for 
the lands to tit east it would axsl loo 


much — he estimates 5 to 7 percent of 
the total of Western Europe’s GNF fra- 
a decade — to bring them to a level 
where they could begin to sustain open 
competition. “So it has to start with 
politics," be says, and be is impatient. 

Mr. Biedenkopfs proposal is to 
separate timetables for economic and 
political inclusion in European 
Union, the second modi more rapid 
than the first, for tbe benefit of West 
aswefl as EasL The Easterners should 
be advisory participants in. the big 
1996 European Union conference 
projected by (he Maastricht treaty to 
review European institutions after 
tbe inclusion of Austria and probably 
tbe Scandinavian countries. . 

For the East, this assurance .of pro- 
spective admission would help stabi- 
lize democracy. Dangerous reactions 
of disillusion and frustration art aJ- 
ready appearing in firing nationalism 
and the return of Communist power 
structures. For the, West, it would 
help reach more farsighted, wiser de- 
ciaons on organizing tile future Eu- 
rope th«n are likely to resall from 
interim, tactical measures. 

There is no Question that ibe fall of 
the Berlin. Wall and what It symbol- 
ized is gong to force change in. West- 
ern Europe. Much of its "structure 
arose from the partition of Europe. 


of the United States are fighting for 
status in the larger society; the mi- 
norities of Europe are mainly fighting 
for independence from ft.” 

So there are evident limitations on 
the value for Europeans ofTbe Amer- 
ican experience. I am sore, however, 
that Europe must move beyond the 
idea of etnmc nations — the doctrine 
that citizenship should be based on 
bloodlines rather than on principles. 

Under correal German law, for 
example, people of German extrac- 
tion who have never lived in Germa- 
ny have a bettor legal claim to Ger- 
man citizenship than do people of 
Turkish origin who have lived in Ger- 
many for a couple of gsooatidns. 
Europe must accept the inevitability 
of hete ro geneity — and ihe conse- 
quent need to persuade heteroge- 
neoos peoples to five together in civil- 
ity ana harmony. 

Tbe first necessity is the rote of, 
law. Those who seek citizenship in a 
country can reasonably be caOed on 
to abide faryi the country’s constitution 
and laws. There are persons of ardent 
religious faith who come to a country 
and say that they will obey cmN those 
of the country’s laws that conform to 
their understanding of the Koran or 
some other sacred text. Such indigest- 
ible communities are hard to recon- 
cile with a democratic polity. 

A second necessity is productive 
employment Competition for jobs 
intensifies ethnic and racial hostil- 
ities and feeds mCtical extremism. 
Economic growth will not core ethnic 
prejudices, but it wall mitigate some 
of its worst effects. 

A third necessity is an internation- 
al framework dealing with minority 
rights. A resolution adopted by the 
UN General Assembly m 1970 de- 
clared that the right to sdf-detemu- 
nation should not be applied in a way 
(hat would break up compoate states 
when those states respect human - 
rights. Kit how to assure that re- 
spect? How to strengthen the interna- 
tional machiner y for the protection 
of minorities? 

The Dutch pnmosai for a High 
Commissioner foe Minorities desaves 
more serious ooorideratida than it has 
received from toe Conference on Secu- 
rity and Cooperation in Europe. Oth- 
ers suggest that the existmgEunjpeaii 
Court on Human Rights take on toe 
protection of minorities. 

Robert Badinter, president of 
France’s Constitutional Council, re- 
commends a European Arbitration 
Court. If Hungaiy, for example, filed 
a complaint about the treatment of 
ethnic Hungarians in otha- countries, 
the judges would wotk out a reason- 
able solution and begin to build up 
legal precedents that would in tim e 
amount to a common law for minor- 
ity problems. To avert an age of Yu- 
gostavias, the nationsof Europe must 
create some trans-European means of 
redndng ethnic conflict. . 

If we cannot de-ethmeize the con- 
cept of citizenship, provide jobs and 
develop machinery to protec minor- 
ities, it is hard to see bow the descent ' 
into tribalism can be stopped and the 
dream of European unity revitalized.

ities at the City . University of New

Bui what America did accomplish was 
remarkable. Roger Wilkins, who is as 
aware as anyone of the task that re- 
mains, wrote in The Nation magazine 
that the Brown decision brought enor- 
mous social change. 

Segregation ended, and “blacks 
moved into positions undreamed of in 
the pre-Brown world — chairman of the 
Joint Chiefs of Staff, quarterback in the 
NFL, mayors of major dries ..." 

For blacks is the middle class, many 
barriers are down. The terrible reality 
that remains is the underclass. That is 
a crisis not for blacks alone but for 
all Americans, .

OPINION 


Warren Christopher Square, Downtown Gomzde. 



It is a belter country. We have wit- 


oil c . ™ uuniaji in 

i SUUcs ' Today there are 

^W***bck of Coo- 
Srcss are blade. One is from Mississippi; 
something utterly unimaginable in 1964 . 

To achieve that result required a com- 
bination of legal, social and political 
action. The white Southern political 
structure resisted the desegregation or- 
ders of the courts with success for years. 

As late as 1960, six years after the 
Brown decision, not a single Mack child 
was in a public school or even a state 
univers ity with whites in Alabama, 
Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi or Vir- 
ginia. The courts could not end legally 
enforced racism alone: 

What happened was that protests, 
and brutal suppression of those protests 
by while officials, aroused the con- 
science of Americans who had not 
known or cared much about segregation. 
President Kennedy made the first 
speeds ever from the White House call- 
ing racism a moral issue. President Lyn- 
don Johnson pressed for action. 

The remit was the Gvil Rights Act of 
1964, outlawing discrimination in jobs 
and public accommodations. The vot- 
ing Rights Act of 1965, as it was en- 
forced, opened the voting rolls and 
transformed Southern politics. 

That is what Mr. Lewis meant by 
a nonviolent revolution. It really was 
that: a revolution in the law of 
race relations as decisive as the trans- 
formation we have just witnessed in

lishment Drifts Awav From the Society" 
(Opinion, April 14) by William Pfaff: 

The issue of military influence on a 
democratic society is ever timely and. in 
this case, very complex. Mr. Pfaff, I fear, 
dies the wrong historical antecedents 
for the current situation and draws a 
midwHin^ conclusion. 

I served in the US. Army when we had 
draftees as well as in the subsequent "all- 
vofun teer" (professional) army. Mr. Pfaff 
correctly describes the US. Army in Viet- 
nam as an unrepresentative force drawn 
from the poor, the black and the white 
working classes. College kids tike Bill 
Clinton seemingly could always find a 
way out of nrimary service. The post- 
Vietnam change to a professional army 
was not initiated by the military itself, but 
imposed from above by Richard Nixon, 
who wanted to dispose of the draft, which 
had become a vexing political problem. 

Many of us in the officer corps at the 
time disapproved of a professional army, 
and for some of the same reasons cited by 
Mr. Pfaff. We thought that (he army of a 
republic should be representative of and 
responsive to the people. When a profes- 
sional army is sent to some small war 
some w here, the public doesn’t really care 
so long as the casualties are professional 
soldiers (“They volunteered, didn't 
they T). But when draftees start getting 
killed, the public becomes critical. In this 
way, a professional military is a much 
more flexible instrument for the govern- 
ment — witness Grenada and Panama. 

In subsequent years, jhe raflitaiy strove 


mightily to make the professional army a 
success. Great seas of suits lies supposed- 
ly prove that the "aU-voIunteer" army is 
superior to the draftee army. 1 am not so 
sure. Certainly, the professional army is 
tidier, more malleable, and easier to man- 
age than (he volunteer army. 1 have my 
doubts, however, if it is more representa- 
tive. The same poor, black and while 
working classes make up the army as 
during the Vietnam War. in the draftee 
army, there was a nice leavening in both 
the officer corps and the enlisted ranks, 
with better-educated young people who 
bad different viewpoints from us lifers. 

Mr. Pfaff compares the current profes- 
sional U.S. Army with the Prussian pro- 
fessional army and with the development 
of state militarism in Wilhelmian Germa- 
ny. So Tar. the results have been just the 
opposite. The U.S. military leadership 
has been much more reluctant lo commit 
troops than have the Bush and Clinton 
administrations, keeping U.S. ground 
forces out of the Balkan quagmire (so 
far), showing reluctance lo get into Soma- 
lia (and, as events have proved, rightly so) 
and insisting on a dear, achievable strate- 
gy in the Gulf.

Regarding “ America's Upstarts in Uni- 
form Should Go Quietly Back to Base " 
(Opinion, April II) by Richard K Kohn: 

If, as the writer suggests, the military 
sees itself as separaie from society, then 
this has been a two-way street. Since the 
draft was ended, the number of citizens 
with mflita/y experience has been greatly 
reduced. This becomes significant when

these people enter government service. 

Most military personnel recognize the 
need for civilian oversight; the example 
of General Mac Arthur is drummed into 
officers from early on. The difficulty 
comes when the dvilians in oversight 
positions have no knowledge or military 
power and its components. 

In the current U.S. cabinet, not only is 
there a shortage of relevant military ’ex- 
perience — only Vice President Al Gore 
and Secretary of Veterans Affairs Jesse 
Brown have recent experience — but 
this is the first modem administration to 
be markedly apathetic to the military. 

The sad fact is not that the militaiy has 
grasped control from the civilians! but 
that civilian leadership has given it away.

Italy; To Avert Erosion 

Memories are lamentably short and 
there is a natural tendency to forgive 
and forget. Notwithstanding, there can 
be no compromise with evil. Any person 
or group inat man hes under the banner 
of fascism or Nazism or any of their 
reincarnations must be barred from the 
democratic prednets of the European 
Union. It is urgent that the situation in 
Italy be studied carefully in the EU and 
necessary condusions drawn. It would 
be better to add to Italy’s political diffi- 
culties than to make a mockery or a 
democratic institution. Surely there are 
enough wise and prudent Italians to save 
their democracy from any erosion.

B OSTON — For the past few weeks, 
while the United States waited to 
hear who would be nominated to tbfe 
Supreme Court, a series of lower court 
decisions was being laid down, one case 
after another. like stepping stones, lead- 
ing to ihe door of ihe courthouse, 
whoever sits on the highest bench is 
going to be there when one of the most 
sensitive issues arrives; the issue of doc- 
tor-assisted suicide. The question will 

MEANWHILE 

come bearing all the moral weight and 
political heat of the issue of abortion; 
the decision may be as famous and as 
fractious as Roe' v. Wade. 

Two courts have now issued absolute- 
ly opposite opinions about the constitu- 
tional right to assisted suicide. One of 
these was in Michigan, where the Jack 
Kevorkian story is the longest-running 
saga of America's public ethics class. 

On May 1 Dr. Kevorkian was acquit- 
ted of breaking a law specifically written 
to stop him. After watching an emotion- 
al videotape that showed Thomas Hyde, 
in advanced stages of amyotrophic later- 
al sclerosis, pleading to die. the jury' 
refused to convict Dr. Kevorkian of 
wrongdoing for heeding that plea. 

Days later, the state appeals court 
struck down the so-called Kevorkian law. 
on a technicality. But the same 2-to-l 
majority on the appeals court went on to 
declare that there is no constitutional 
right to suicide or to assisted suicide. 
“Dberty and justice will not cease to exist 
if a right to commit suicide is not recog- 
nized," wrote Judge Thomas Fitzgerald. 

This is the exact opposite of what a 
federal district court judge in Seattle had 
decided days earlier. There, Judge Barba- 
ra J. Roths lein struck down a 140-year- 
old state ban on assisted suicide, saying 
that the law violated the 14th Amend- 
ment by restricting a person's liberty. 

“There is no more profoundly person- 
al decision." she wrote, “nor one which 
is closer to the heart of personal liberty 
than the choice which a terminally ill 
person makes to end his or her suffering 
and hasten an inevitable death." So the 
sides are joined with more cases to come. 

About 30 U.S. states make it illegal to 
help someone commit suicide. In opin- 
ion polls, the public is in favor or letting 
doctors aid tne terminally, painfully iU 
who want to die. But at the voting polls, 
they have publicly rejected initiatives 
that would make it legal. 

Indeed, in Washington State, some of 
the same people who brought their case 
to the ballot in 1991 and lost, brought 
their case lo the court in 1994 and won. 

Judge Rothstein's opinion leaned 
heavily on the Supreme Court's abortion 
decisions. But the analogy to abortion is 
not just a legal one. It is a political one. 

we Amen cans arc at the same point in 
the debate over suicide, assisted suidde, 
the right-to-die. and euthanasia, that we 


were in the debate over abortion in the 
eariy 1970s. We are at the beginning. 

Uhicisis and advocates may have 
done a great deal of thinking about 
suicide, but the image in the public mind 
is still largely like the one in Thomas 
Hyde’s videotape. It is ihe panrail of a 

painfully, terminally ill person. It is us. 

We have not yet traversed all the slip- 
pery slopes around this territory. Nor 
nave we wrestled, compromised, argued 

through a list of safeguards. 

We have only begun to discuss when 
and who and under what circumstances 
which patients should get ihe help of 
which doctors. When is pain truly un- 
controllable? What is terminal? Who 
needs a doctor's help in dying and who 
needs our help in living? 

These questions are being explored in 
places like Michigan where a legislative 
commission is meeting and in Oregon 
where careful advocates have produced 
a ballot initiative. 

But in America, the courts continually 
preempt public debates. In 1973. the 
Supreme Court issued the abortion deci- 
sion in Roe v. Wade. But Justice Harry 
Blackmun's compromise did not mute 
the controversy. An abortion war fol- 
lowed in which a scorched-earth policy 
replaced the search for common ground. 

Now we are about to scrutinize Justice 
Blackmun's likely successor. Stephen 
Brcyer. We will measure his humanity as 
carefully as his mind. Because there' are 
cases making their wav inexorably to his 
doorstep. And the furor over the' end of 
life could be every bit as intense as the 
furor over the beginning of life,

No Further Appeal 

C HIEF U.S. District Judge Barbara 
Rothstcin of Washington State has 
discovered buried deep in the constitu- 
tion what no one had heretofore been 
able to find; the right to assisted suicide. 

If there is to be a right lo assisted 
suicide, why stop with the terminally ill? 
Under what principle should the non ter- 
minally ill or even the healthy be denied 
the autonomy of assisted suicide? 

When the' Supreme Court rewrote 
abortion laws in 1973. it usurped the 
abortion debate at tremendous political 
and social cost. As Ruth Bader Gins- 
burg has argued. Roe v. Wade "hailed a 
political process that was moving in a 
reform direction and thereby, I believe, 
prolonged divisiveness and deferred sta- 


ll the consequences of permitting as- 
sisted suidde turn out to be as baleful as 
I fear, a democratic decision can always 
be reversed. But with constitutional 
rights there is uo further appeal. And as 
with abortion, all that is left is bitter- 
ness, angry demonstrations, and a deep 
sense of disenfranchisement.

Saint Laurent vs. Lauren. 


Tbe Paris Tribunal de Commerce 
will pass judgment on a tuxedo dress 
put cm sale in Ralph Lauren bou- 
tiques in 1992 that Yves Saint Lau- 
ren! considers his original design. 

Tbe French couture house is de- 
manding damages of 5 million 
francs (about S870.000) against the 
American designer for counterfeit 
and unfair competition. 

“It is not even a question of artis- 
tic patrimony — this dre&s is a real 
copy,** says Pierre Beige, the com- 
bative partner of Saint Laurent. “I 
think it is scandalous that a design- 
er should get an international repu- 
tation by copying- It is a great pity 
that Europe can’t get together to 
harmonize the law.” 

Lauren has counterattacked by 
complaining of denigration, be- 
cause of comments on the case 
made by Beige in the American 
trade publication Women’s Wear 
Daily. Lauren is demanding I mil- 
lion francs. 

Copyright cases are nothing new 
in the fashion world. Companies 
with status names and logos spend 
millions of dollars annually on pur- 
suing counterfeiters.

Forte thinks it difficult to define

“The ’Annani-ization’ of every

Tkr Associated Press 

DAYTON. Ohio — Mead Corp. 
said Monday that it would proba- 
bly sell Mead Data Central Inc., a 
, subsidiaiy that offers the Lexis and 
Nexis on-line information services. 

Mead C0rp„ which makes and 
sells paper and pulp, said it would 
use the proceeds to improve its busi- 
nesses in these areas as wtNJ as in its 
packaging, paperboard, container 
materials, school and office prod- 
ucts divisions. 

The company has hired ihe Wall 
Street investment adviser Gold- 
man, Sachs & Co. to evaluate 
whether selling is the best way to 
divest itself of Mead Data Central. 

“WeVejust started the process." 
said Betsy Russo, a Mead Corp. 
spokeswoman. “We think the most 
logical conclusion will be a sale to a 
strategic buyer.” 

Mead Data Centra] is a major 
provider of on-line legal, news and 
financial information services and 
operates in the electronic publishing 
marfceL Nexis is the company's 
computer-assisted research service 
for general and business news, while 
Lexis is its legal research service. 

Mead Corp. bought the company 
in 1968 for $6 million. In 1993, the 
subsidiary earned $30.4 million cm 
sales of $551 million. The previous 

year, it had earnings of $50.6 million 
cm sales of $495 million. 

Mead Data Central employs 
about 3,800 workers worldwide. 
Last August, the company laid off 
400 workers in a cost-cutting move. 

Steven Mason, Mead Corp. 
chairman, said that if Mead Data 
Central is sold. Mead could use the 
proceeds to strengthen its competi- 
tive position by buying other busi- 
nesses, improving productivity, re- 
ducing debt or buying back stock. 

Mead Corp„ based in Dayton, 
has offices and operations in 30 
countries and employs about 
22,000 people. It reported first- 
quarter profit of $27.6 million. 

Mead said its directors decided 
to focus on the company's forest- 
products business. **I think it's 
probably a reasonable thing f 0 r 
than to do because this is not the 
main guts of their business,'' said 
John Weiler, director of the Center 
for Business and Economic Re- 
search at the University of Dayton. L 


Venezuela Banks: 
A ** Catastrophe 9 
Awaiting Rescue 


Feuding EU Officials 
Dim Summit Prosuei 


By James Brooke 

AW- York Times Service 

CARACAS — In Latin 
America's worst banking crisis 
of the Tree-market 1990s, a 
siring of failures since Januarv 
has left half of Venezuela's 
banking indusiry in the hands 
of the government. 

Venezuelan taxpayers face a 
S6.I billion bailout bill, as the 
government props up nine 
banks, including Banco Latino, 
the countiy's second-largest. 
More banks may fall as inspec- 
tors unravel a five-year-long 
banking spree of free-floating 
interest rales and mi nimal gov- 
ernment supervision. 

“Eighty to 90 percent of the 
banking system is compromised 
in this catastrophe," said Oscar 
Garcia Mendoza, president of 
one of the strongest banks here. 
Banco Venezolano de Credito. 
“If you don’t have policemen 
on street comers, bankers will 
run red lights.” 

The costly bailout is contrib- 
uting to political instability. 
While fugitive bank directors 
enjoy comfortable overseas ex- 
ile, Venezuelans are paying for 
the bank failures with high in- 
flation, reduced government 
services and shrinking econom- 
ic activity. 

For Venezuela’s economy, 
today's financial crisis is rough- 
ly 10 times as severe as the fail- 
ure of U.S. savings and loans 
institutions in the early 1990s. 

For the United States, the 
$105 billion savings and loans 
bailout represents 1.6 percent 
or gross national product and 7 
percent of the projected 1995 
federal budgeL 
By contrast, Venezuela’s $6.1 
billion bailout represents 1 1 
percent of Venezuela’s gross na- 
tional product and 75 percent 
of the government’s 1994 na- 
tional budgeL Banco Latino 
had 1.2 million depositors -r- i 
about 10 percent of Venezuela’s j 
adult population. - t

International Herald Tribune 

W ASHINGTON— Suddenly the 
world is witnessing the opening 
shots in a cultural claSh be- 
tween Asian amid American val- 
ues, and so far America is losing. It is high 
time for a change of tactics., 

The conflict is not just about corporal 
punishment in Singapore Nor is it limited to 
the political and social differences stemming 
ftam American individualism versus Asian 
collectivism. 

It is also about the different ways Asia and 
the West do business and resolve commercial 
and economic disputes. The way it plays out 
may change the way the worid economy is run. 

Asia’s new assertiveness flows from the. 
growing recognition of its economic power. 
After years in which the^ West bus talked down 
to them, many Asians fed they have finally 
tipped the scales of history in their favor. 

That burgeoning self -confidence puts Asia 
on a collision course with an administration 
in Washington that it sees as bullying and 
high-handed — whether in pressuring China 
onbuman rights, seeking to interfere in Sin- 
gapore’s judicial processes or brow-beating 
Japan on trade. 

The American approach is not working. 
President Bill Clinton has had to back away 
from Was hing ton's initial demands far man- 
aged trade with Japan; he is facing defeat in 
Jus bid to link China’s exports to human 
rights- and he failed to stop the caning of 
I&!d Fay in Singapore. 

It is not surprising that some of the admm- 
istration’s more thoughtful members have 
Parted calling for a less abrasive approach, 
an tatSnal State Department docu- 


ment, Assistant Secretary <rf State Winston 
Lord wains —correctly —that Washington’s 
att itu de is driving Asian countries into a 
common front against the United States. 

At the Commerce Department, Jeffrey E 
Garten, undersecretary for international 
trade, contends that Asian values and princi- 
ples will in the future have to play a greater 
role in the global economy. 

As Asia surges forward, Western attempts 
to control international dedsion-makmg 

Asians feel they have 
finally tipped the scales of 
history in their favor. 

through the Group of Seven will become 
increasingly less credible. The same goes for 
the West’s dominance over multilateral insti- 
tutions such as the World Bank and the 
In te rnati onal Monetary Fund — and, next 
year, the Weald Trade Organization. 

Mr. Garten argues that with the rules and 
practices of the WTO by no means set in 
concrete, it' win have to take Asian ways of 
doing things into account or risk bong by- 
passed by Asian nations. 

Asia's contribution will be differenL 
Asians do not, for example, share the litigious 
and confrontational Anglo-Saxon approach 
to disputes, where courts rule in favor of one 
of two advmsaries. 

Asians believe in consensus; they prefer 
arbitration, and they often give greater im- 
portance to personal than to contractual rela- 
tionships. They also accept more government 


involvement in trade and industry than most 
Anglo-Saxons. 

Furthermore, Mr. Garten maintains. West- 
ern leverage over the rest of the world is 
slipping The West is no longer so dominant 
in supplying foreign aid and mili tary protec- 
tion, or in advanced technology. 

Of couise, the West's rules still largely hold 
sway. And the United States has a' good 
chance to reinforce them by quickly ratifying 
the outcome of the Uruguay Round of world 
trade talks — effectively an imra- Western 
deal between Washington and Brussels — 
and bringing China into the WTO while it is 
still prepared to accept Western conditions. 

But Washington cannot simply impose its 
values. If it tries to, there is a dear risk that 
the Asians wfl] set up their own arrange- 
ments, from which the United Slates might 
find itself excluded — as Malaysia, for in- 
stance, is already advocating. 

That would be the end of Mr. Clin ion's 
vaunted Pacific community. Around the 
world, other developing countries could be 
increasingly tempted to adopt the Asian rather 
than Western economic and political modeL 
Of course, some Asian government atti- 
tudes are self-serving. Japan, for example, 
clearly hopes to do better business in China 
by playing down human rights and aligning 
itself culturally with Beijing. As many Asians 
admit, their societies are far from perfect. 
There is nothing to be smug abouL 
Nobody is saying that America has to aban- 
don its values. But American values will have a 
better chance of prevailing if the United Stales 
starts treating its Asian partners with greater 
respect. As Mr. Garten puts it. Washington 
must cultivate a new leadership style —“one 
based not on fiat but on consultation.

BRUSSELS — European Union 
officials clashed sharply Monday 
over proposals to press ahead with 
deregulation and to finance trans- 
portation and information high- 
ways, dimming prospects for 
Union leaders to agree on concrete 
pleasures to stimulate growth and 
jobs at their summit meeting in 
Greece next month. 


is expected to edge up to 11.6 per- 
cent from 1 1 percent now. 

The biggest dispute Monday re- 
volved around a German proposal 
to set up a task force of business 
leaders to identify excessive regula- 
tions that hinder investment and 
job creation. 

While the German plan got 
strong support from Bri tain , Jac- 


Confromations at meetings of 
EU foreign and finance ministers 
here show that the Union remains 
deeply divided between countries 
led by Britain and Germany, which 
believe deregulation and lower costs 
hold the key to ending Europe’sjohs 
crisis, and a camp led by the Euro- 
pean Commission, the EU executive 
agency, which has proposed a mas- 
sive program of public works pro- 
jects. 

The division has raised the risk 
that the summit meeting in Corfu 
will be a mere repeat of the leaders' 
last meeting in Brussels in Decem- 
ber, when they endorsed the broad 
outlines of a commission study on 
jobs and competitiveness without 
endorsing any specific actions. 

The commission's latest econom- 
ic forecast highlights the risk of 
inaction. Although the forecast ex- 
pects growth in EU countries to 
pick up to 1.6 percent this year and 
2.5 percent in 1995, unemployment 


H uca vwhx me commission presi- 
dent. attacked the plan as an end- 
run around the authority of the 
executive body. 

Mr. Delors and Kenneth Clarke, 
Britain's chancellor of the Exche- 
quer, also renewed their dispute 
oyer financing of the highways, 
high-speed railways and informa- 
tion networks considered 
to Europe’s future competitiveness 
and ability to create jobs. 

Mr. Delors told foreign ministers 
that the Corfu s ummi t should re- 
sult in a firm commitment to new 
Union financing me chanisms to 
raise some of the 8 billion Europe- 
an currency units ($9 billion) a year 
in new funds that the commission 
says are needed to fund long-term 
projects that may not return a prof- 
it for as long as 30 years. 

But Mr. Clarke remained ada- 
mantly opposed, saying there was 
plenty of funding available from 

the European investment Bank and 
the private sector. He was support- 
ed by Germany, which is unwilling 
to endorse new EU spending at a 


time of stiff budget cuts at home 
and by France. Finance Ministe 
Edmond Alphandery said fundini 
already available from the Unior 
budget and the European Invest 
mem Bank woe more than suffi 
dent to finance the top 10 project 
that EU leaders were expected n 
approve at Corfu — a list that in 
eludes the Paris- Berlin higb-spea 
raO line pushed by France. 

Officials of Britain, France am 
Germany said that as a result o 
their opposition, there was Iitt! 
chance that Mr. Delors would wii 
the funding commitment he wa 
seeking from the summit meeting 

In other matters Monday 
France blocked the approval of" 
trade pact with Russia that wouli 
offer Moscow the prospect of a> 
eventual free-trade agreement. 

Foreign Minister Alain Jupp 
said the pact negotiated by the con- 
mission m recent weeks lacked adt 
quale safeguards to protect France’ 
nudear-fud industry from chea 
Russian uranium exports. He sai- 
he would continue to insist that un 
mum trade be excluded from th 
agreement, a position he will take t 
Moscow on Thursday>. 

The other 11 EU foreign minis 
ters said they were ready toendois 
the pact, however, and a commis 
sion official said he believed th 
French were merely taking “on 
more stab at getting a better dea 
Good luck to them.*

ing jailed Tor one year. 

In the Banco Latino c aw, a 
criminal court judge is sued 83 
arrest warrants in early Man*. 
The list was apparently prepared 
by copying names out of the 
bank's most recent annual re- 
port. The following week, the 
judge excused herself from the 
case, but left the arrest warrants 
standing. 

Four months later, only six of 
83 suspects have surrendered. 
Virtually ail the others are be- 
lieved to be abroad.

confidence in their banking, le- 
gal or political systems, keep 
about 550 billion in foreign 
banks. Deposits in Venezuelan 
banks total only $12.7 billion. 


Singapore Economy Surges 11% 


Reuters 

SIN GAPORE — Singapore's economy grew 11 
percent in the first quarter, well above government 
expectations, but a spokesman said Monday the pace 
"J* jpjdy io slow to a more sustainable 8.0 percent for 

oli CM I 7 t4. 

“The first quarter’s growth was faster than our 
expectation," a trade and industry ministry spokes- 
man sard. 

But he said the government did not thinV the econo- 
my would overheat because growth should slow to an 
inflation-adjusted 8.0 percent in gross domestic prod- 
uct for all of] 994. 

The first-quarter spurt compares with 7 j 5 percent 
growth in the 1993 first quarter and 10.7 percent 
growth in the fourth quarter of 1 993. The ministry said 
exceptionally strong performance" in the manufac- 
turing sector and continued good performance in 
financial and services sectors aided growth. 


Private economists said they expected GDP to grov 
at a real 8.0 percent this year against 9.9 percent it 
1993. 

Paul Schymyck, a regional economist with Smitl 
Barney Shearson HG Asia, said economic growth thi 
year would be more balanced, with contributions from 
vanons core sectors such as manufacturing, finance* 
and business services. 7 

Last year's stock-market boom was a major contrib^ 
uior to 1993 growth. That boom was likely to disap 
pear this year, leading to a deceleration in economic 
growth, he said. L 

Mr. Schymyck said declining unit labor costs, eas 
ing pressures on business costs and higher foreig 
investment were positive factors for the economy. 

The minis try said the unit business cost index of th 
manufacturing sector fell by 12 percent in the fin 
quarter against the like 1993 period amid a 2.7 percer 
fall in labor costs.

Soybean and com prices were lified by fears a 
Midwest drought would cause as much crop damage 
as last year's flooding did. while coffee prices surged 
on talk of failing crops in major producing countries. 

Rainfall over much of the Midwest has been below 
normal for the past few weeks and some forecasters 
say a large high pressure air mass could settle over the 
Corn Belt next month, blocking moist air from moving 
into the region from the Gulf of Mexico. 

La:: year'., flooding left stockpiles low. The U.S. 
Dcpartme-K of Agriculture estimate* corn stocks at 
S 2 ' million bushels, down from 2. 1 1 billion at the 
same time last year.

rupling the stability of the diamond market," said 
Roger van Eeghen, a spokesman for De Beers in 
London. 

Ray A. Clark, the general director of the De Beers 
office in Moscow, said De Beers had been buving 
rough diamonds from Russia since 1959 under various 
contractual arrangements. From 1963 y> 1990. the old 
Soviet Union refused to deal opealv with De Beers, a 
South African company, because of apartheid in 
Smith Africa. 

Bui on July 25. 1990, the failing Soviet Union, 
desperate for hard currencv, signed a contract grant* 
ing De Beers exclusive rights to export its uncut 
diamonds for five years. Mr. Gark said both sides 
would be sitting down to renegotiate the agreement, 
which expires at the end of 1995. Mr. Guryevich said 
the negotiations could bej»m as early as this month. 

Russian diamond officials say that Russia could 
earn more by funneling the diamonds through its 
domestic polishing industry rather than through" using 
De Beers. 

"Everybody knows polished diamonds bring in 
more than uncut ones,” said Yevgeny M. Bychkov, the 
chairman of the Committee on Precious Metals and 
Gems. “Why should we be giving away our profits?” 

Mr. Guryevich contended that De Beers was using 


“brilliant pricing mechanisms'’ to stifle the Russian 
diamond-polishing industry. “De Beers is doing every- 
thing so that domestic polishing industries do not 
develop in countries that mine diamonds.” be said, but 
gave no examples of De Beers’s actions. 

Mr. Clark disagreed. “There has never been any 
intention on the pan of Dc Beers to discou rage a 
home-grown diamond polishing industry.” he said 
Mr. Clark added that the industry depended on small, 
well-established family businesses with direct access 
to the diamond market — conditions that do not exist 
in Russia or in the ocher countries with which De 
Beers has export agreements. 

At least eight nations, including. Russia. Botswana, 
Australia and Angola, have signed agreements to 
export diamonds through De Beers, Mr. Gaik said. 

“None of these, except us. has a domestic industry," 
Mr. Guryevich said. “If they began polishing their 
own diamonds, there would be no need for De Beers." 

As middleman between the diamond-prod u dn g 
countries and the diamond cutters, De Beers charges 
Russia and the other members of the cartel a 10 
percent commission. 

The contract with De Beers excludes the uncut 
diamonds that Russia sells to its own polishing 
factories.

a — Lufthansa 

“J e struggling German airline, 
saw Monday it cut pretax losses by 
two thirds in the first quarter and 
expected a profit for 1994. 

The airline reported a first-quar- 
ter loss of 82 million Deutsche 
maixs ($49 million) before taxes, a 
thud of the 245 million DM loss it 
posted in the first three months of 

JQrgen Weber, (he chief execu- 
tive of Lufthansa, said be was opti- 
mistic about the airline’s prospects 
for the year bat he refused to offer 
specific predictions. 

“We’ve made afl the prepara- 
tions for take-off," Mr. Weber said. 


Now we have less take-off weight 
and greater range,’’ he added in a 
reference to the company’s reduced 
cost structure and prospects for

will ask shareholders to authorize 
the creation of a nominal 515 mil- 
lion DM in new share capital at the 
annual meeting. With a nominal 
value of 50 DM per share, that 
means 105 million new shares. 
Lufthansa also wants to issue a 
further 50 million DM in shares to 
employees. 


The govemroen t has said it wont- 
ed to reduce its 51 percent stake in 
Lufthansa by not participating in 
the offering. 

KJans Schjede, the company’s 
chief financial officer, said Lufth- 
ansa would price a first tranche of 
6.1 miUiofl snares at 160 DM each in 
a ono-for-five rights issue to existing 
shareholders. That would raise 
about 967 million DM. A second 
rights issue of 4B6 million shares in 
a ratio of one-for-nine would follow 
in 1995, Mr. SchJede said. He said be 
hoped the company would reinstate 
a dividend this year. 

Investors did not offer a warm 
reception to the earnings news 
Monday. Lufthansa shares fell to 
201.50 DM from 206.00 DM.

Air LSberte Joins Airport-Access Squabble 


Compiled by Our Staff From Dispatcher 

PARIS — Air Uberto said Monday it planned to 
complain to the European Commission abont prob- 
lems in obtaining access to London’s Heathrow air- 
port, adding another voice to the squabble between 
France and Britain over landing rights. 

The French airline said it planneato open four daily 
flights between Orly and Heathrow starting on June 
30 but that It had not yet obtained flight slots enabling 
it to establish a coherent timetable. 

The oommisaon has instructed Fiance to make Orly 
airport accessible to British Airways and its French 
subsidiary, TAT. The move has caused Air France and 
other French airlines to complain about their access to 
Heathrow.

The dispute has evolved into a French political 
issue, with airline unions threatening Prime Minister 
Edouard Balladur with strikes. 

Meanwhile, the leader of the French government 
coalition’s campaign for elections to the European 
Parliament criticize British Airways for forcing open 
the Orly route in the name of Eunroan principles 
while it consistently refused to buy European-built 
planes from Airbus Industrie. 

"British Airways has never shown the slightest Eu- 
ropean solidarity in purchasing its planes, which is 
pretty stupefying,” said Dominique Baudis. “They are 
iH-placed to make demands in the name of a European 
ideal which they have never taken into account.”

PARIS — Limited freight 
service through the Channel 
Tunnel is to begin Thursday, 
the Eurotunnel consortium said 
Monday, but the project’s fi- 
nances remain weak. 

The Anglo-French consor- 
tium said it received operating 
certificates from the British and 
French governments allowing it 
to transport trucks through the 
tunnel on its shuttle trains and 
also to allow passage of frdghL 
trains operated by British Rail 
and SocKte Nationale des Che- 
mins de fer Fran^ais. the 
French rail company. 

SNCF said neither it nor 
British rail expected to begin 
sending freight trains until June 
13. On Thursday, however, 
trucking companies wQl be al- 
lowed to send their vehicles on 
the Eurotunnel shuttle, by invi- 
tation. Those first shipments 
come nearly two weeks after the 
May 6 official opening of the 
tunnel and almost a year later 
than originally scheduled. 

Regular passengpr service is 
not expected to begin until Octo- 
ber, so the tunnel will miss the 
lucrative summer season. As a 
result, revenue from shuttle train 


and through-train operations is 
expected to be only 1 3 billion 
French francs (S227 million] this 
year, compared with the last esti- 
mate published 18 months ago 
of 5.04 billion francs. 

Eurotunnel reduced its 1995 
revenue forecast to 5.1 billion 
francs from an earlier 6.6 bil- 
lion initially. In 1 996. revenue is 
expected to be 7.19 billion 

The consortium estimated it 
would have 22 percenl of cross- 
channel passenger traffic in 
1995, or 163! million travelers, 
rising to 28 percent in 1996. For 
goods, Eurotunnel expects 1 1.4 
percent of the market, or 11.4 
million tons, in 1995, rising to 
15.6 percent, or 16.01 million 
tons, m 1996. 

The slower-than-expected 
start to operations — the result 
of disputes between Eurotunnel 
and the contractors that built the 
tunnel plus technical problems 
with the shuttles —the company 
said it did not plan to pay divi- 
dends until 2003. By then. SEr 
TECE-WSA, a consultant said 
the tunnel would have annual 
revenue of 12.92 billion francs, 
rising to 2132 bOlion in 2013.

Krupp Joins 
Bid to Buy 
Italian Firm 

Complied fy Our Staff From Dispatches 

MILAN — An Italian- German 
consortium, including Fried. 
Krupp AG Hoesch-Krupp, said 
Monday ii has made a bindin g of- 
fer for the Italian steel company 
Aerial Special! Temi SpA, one of 
two state-controlled steelmakers 
being privatized by the Italian gov- 
emment. 

Three Italian companies, Ac- 
riaierie e Ferriere Lombarde Falck 
SpA. Tadfin and Riva SpA, have 
joined Krupp in the bid. a joint 
statement said, but it did not give 
any financial details about the of- 
fer. 

Falck is one of Italy’s largest 
specialty steelmakers, with net as- 
sets of about 400 billion lire ($250 
million). 

Separately, the Treuhand, the 
agency entrusted with the privati- 
zation of East Germany's industry, 
said Monday that it has begun a 
search for a new buyer for the steel- 
maker EKO Stahl AG after plans 
to sell it to Riva collapsed last 
week. 

“The Treuhand is resuming talks 
with all those that were interested 
before,” said a spokesman for 
Thyssen AG. 

But he said that an earlier offer 
put forward last year by Thyssen 
and Preussag AG must now be 
“worked over’ since “time has run 
on.” (Reuters, Bloomberg, AFX)

Greece, Battling, Raises Rates s 


Reuters 

ATHENS — The Bank of Greece 
Monday began its battle to defend 
the d rachma against speculative 
pressures, sending interbank rates 
soaring after the socialist govern- 
ment lifted all restrictions on capital 
movements over the weekend. 

The central batik pushed up its 
key overnight penalty rate to 33 
percent from 30 percent, and its 
discount and Lombard rates to 22J 
percent and 26.5 percent, a rise of 1 
percentage print for each. 

The one-month Athens inter- 


bank offered rate jumped to 57.29 
percent from Friday’s 24.60 per- 
cent, and the three-month rate 
soared to 48.% percent from 25.85 
percent 

The rates kept demand for Deut- 
sche marks low, and the Bank of 
Greece supported the drachma, 
supplying less than $80 million, 
compared with an outflow exceed- 
ing $500 million on Friday. 

“Interbank rates did not allow 
speculators to either borrow or do 
swaps,” a chief foreign exchange 
dealer said.

a S1 , N . GAPQ RE — Southeast 
Asm s booming economics must re- 
sist Western demands to improve 
workers wages and welfare benefits 
in return for more trade, Singapore's 
deputy prime minister said Monday. 

Lee Hsien Loong told labor min- 
isters from the Association of 
Southeast Asian Nations that de- 
veloping countries should deter- 
mine the pace at which workers* 
benefits evolve. 

In response to Western criticism 
of labor tactics in some Southeast 
Asian countries, the mmistefs are 
expected to issue a statement on 


Revenue rose to 6 2 billion dollars 
from 5.6 billion. 

Rising costs for wages, fuel, air- 
craft maintenance and landing and 
parking fees contributed to the 
weaker results, the airline said. 

Intense worldwide competition 
amid slow economic growth in the 
United Stales, Europe and Japan 
also took a toil, although other re- 
gions in Asia prospered, it said. 

.“The outlook for 1994-95 is 
m i x ed,” the company said. “The 
U-S. economy is experiencing 
growth. Asa, with the exception of 
Japan, is still buoyant, so passenger 
traffic in the Asia-Pacific area 
should see moderate growth.” 

Analysts continued to recom- 
mend the airline's stock. 

"The preliminary figures for this 
year are encouraging," said Steven 
Koh, airline analyst at Vickers 
Balias Singapore. ”We have proba- 
bly seen the bottom of the airline 
industry." 

He said he expected the airline’s 


disks, has just opened its third plant in five years in 
the northern resort island of Penang, Malaysia's 
answer to the Silicon Valley. 

Alan Shugart, Seagate's president, said he could 

have set up his plants anywhere in the world, but 
he chose to put them in Scotland, Northern Ire- 
land, Thailand and Malaysia because he liked to 
visit these places. 

“I only do things because it is fun." he said. 


“And I put my money where 1 can have fun." 

A popular beach resort during British colonial 
times, Penang was then known as the Isle of 
Temples because of its many Buddhist and Hindu 


sands of foreign workers to fill blue-collar jobs. 

Analysts said the region's industrial establish- 
ment must continue with efforts to move beyond 

low-technology and labor-intensive operations. 

“Wc cannot compete on labor costs because China 
and the Indochinese nations can offer lower labor 
costs,” said Abu! Hasan Rashid, a management 

consultant. 

“We simply have to move to making high-tech- 
nology products and not just assembling compo- 
nents,” he added. 

The Malaysian government has also expressed 

concern over its large import bill in the electronics 


temples.

cent in 1 995-96 from Z8 percent in 
1994-95 and 5.5 percent in 1993-94. 

The airline’s stock jumped to 7.70 
dollars Monday from 755 Friday. 

The the airline was not as opti- 
mistic about its outlook as the ana- 
lysts. It said that with continued 
intense competition, passenger 
yields may not ‘improve much." 

The airline said its yield, or the 
money earned by flying a metric 
ton one kilometer, declined to 76 
cents last year, with passenger 
yields down 35 percent and cargo 
yields down 7.1 percent. 

Price competition accounted for 
pan of the drop in overall yield, 
while the rise of the Singapore dol- 
lar accounted for the balance, the 
airline said. 

Capital spending totaled 201 
billion dollars in the year, up from 
1.79 billion dollars the previous 
year, with 90 percent spent on air- 
craft. (Reuters, AP, AFX)

their competitiveness by forcing 
them to raise wages to the levels in 
developed nations. . 


Mr. Shugart also owns a restaurant, a publishing 
company and a computer repair company. 

Penang Seagate Industries’ new plant is' the larg- 
est magnetic recording-head assembly facility in 
Southeast Asia, but Mr. Shugart said global demand 
was exceeding the capacity of the Seagate plants. 

“It looks tike I have to open another plant uext 
year,” he said earlier this month during the inaugu- 
ration ceremony for the latest facility, which was 
valued at $57 milli on. 

Seagate has 17 plants employing 50,000 workers 
scattered around the globe. It produces basic com- 
ponents for hard disks in the United States and 
Northern Ireland, airlifts them to Penang for as- 
sembly, sends them to neighboring Thailand for 
another stage of assembly and to Singapore for 
final assembly. 

Seagate posted revenue of $909.27 million for 
the third quarter of its financial year, which ended

period a year earlier. 

Its 6.000 workers in Penang are among the 
200,000 in Malaysia's fast-growing electronics in- 
dustry, which has become the country’s largest 
manufacturing sector in the past few years. 

Malaysia’s electronic exports totaled 34.6 billion 
ringgit ($1326 billion) in 1992 the most recent 
figures available. 

Once known more for its business as a free port 
and its nutmeg exports, Penang alone accounted 
for 10.6 billion ringgit worth of electronics prod- 
ucts in 1992 

Investments in electronics factoriesare still on 
the rise in Penang due to good infrastructure, a 
network of supporting industries and easy access 
to labor, said the Malaysia Industrial Develop- 
ment Authority. 

The sudden rise in the number of plants has put 
a squeeze on labor. Malaysia’s unemployment rale 
is below 3 percent, according to official figures, 
and the country has to rely on hundreds of thou- 


industry, which amounted to 25.5 billion ringgit in 
1992, or nearly 75 percent of the value of electron- 
ics exports. 

Malaysia’s single largest import item was elec- 
tronics component pans, accounting for about 
one-third of total imports for intermediate goods 
and 13.3 percent of total imports in 1992. 

U.S. companies such as Motorola Inc. and Tex- 
as Instruments Inc. pioneered Malaysia's electron- 
ics industry in the early 1970s, lured by lax holi- 
days and other benefits, as Malaysia sought to ease 
an unemployment rate that was high at that time. 


■ Mitsubishi Technology for Proton 

Mitsubishi Motors CorpJrn agreed to hasten 
technology transfer to Malaysia’s Proton national 
car project, in which Mitsubishi Corp. and Mitsu- 
bishi Motors hold a 17 percent slake, Malaysian 
officials said Monday, according to a dispatch 
from AFP- Ex Lei News in Kuala Lumpur. 

RafidahAziz, the minister of international trade 
and industry, said that Mitsubishi executives she 
met in Tokyo recently were “willing to look at 
areas" in the Proton venture where Malaysia has 
expressed concern over Mitsubishi’s reluctance to 
share technology. 

Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad of Ma- 
laysia said in March that if Mitsubishi did not 
allow Proton to design and produce its own engine 
and transmission pans, it could turn to European. 
U.S. and even other Japanese companies.

SEOUL — Two major Soulh 
Korean carmakers, aiming to cut 
production costs and improve com- 
petitiveness, said Monday they 
would cooperate in producing car 
components. , 

Kia Motors Corp. and Daewoo 
Motor Co. said they would draw up 
a list of items far joint development 
and a lime schedule before the end 

of June. 

The move was welcomed by the 
country's largest carmaker, Hyun- 
dai Motor Co., which said it would 
consider joining the Kia- Daewoo 
pans club. 

“It is very desirable," said Choi 
Hahn-young, a Hyundai spokes- 
person “South Korea’s vehicle in- 
dustry should be going in that di- 
rection anyway.” 

Industry analysts said the plan 
would promote economies of scale 
and specialization by parts makers. 

“Standardization of components 

means cost-saving,” said Song 
Sang- boon, a spokesman at the Ko- 
rea Automobile Manufacturers' 
Association, a trade group. 

Kia and Daewoo suffer from 
slim margin* despite increasing in 
sales and are looking for ways to. 
slash overhead. 

Large losses by Daewoo, the No. 
3 company, pushed the combined 
bottom line of South Korean car- 
makers into the red last year to the 
tune of 85 billion won ($10.49 mil- 
lion). 

Kia earned net profit of 18.07 
billion won last year on sates of 
4.11 trillion won, while Daewoo 
recorded a loss of 84.7 billion won

Nintendo Doubts Video Games Need Faster Hardware 


Reuters 

KYOTO, Japan — Nintendo Co, the 
maker of computer games, said Monday 
that the advent of 32-bit video-game ma- 
chines would not spark a price war. 

Hiroshi Yamaudu, president of Nin- 
tendo, said the company was sticking by its 
ded^ffljpntrtmake a.32rbit version cs its 
f-n tfTtntiwv-wfr svstem tcdES. called Fann- 
• com in Japiiivfts systems are connected to 
television sets. 

Countering what appears to be a grow- 
ing consensus elsewhere in (he industry, 
Hiroshi Yamaudri, president of Nintendo, 
sad that most game players to not care 
whether the hardware is 16-bit or 32rbiL 
The number: of bits indicates bow moch 
information the unit can process at one 
time. ' - 

*7 tell people that a war era is not going 
to break out amply because 32-bit game 


machines have emerged," be said, adding 
dial the idea of a next-generation machine 
excites no one except the makers and the 
media. 

The new machines wQl feature multi- 
media functions and virtual reality, the 
latter being three-dimenaonal simulation 
using sensors that respond to a player's 
movements. . 

••• Although Mr. Yamarichi said Nintendo 
would not make a 32rbit version for its 
Faxmcom series, he snd it would make a 
32-bit player for use with computer termi- 
nals and it would go on sale early next year 
at a price of less than 20,000 yen ($192). 

Decisions not to make a 32-bit Faxm- 
com, to stop making machines for arcades 
and to stay out erf theme parks have earned 
Mr. Yamauchi a reputation in the industry 
for being obstinate. 

Whfy» his strategy may puzzle some ana- 


lysts, Mr. Yamauchi can boast a formida- 
ble track record. He led Nintendo into the 
computer game business in the late 1970s 
and has seen it ring up sales of 562.75 
billion yen ($5 billion) and profit for the 
parent company of 163.79 billion in the 
year ended in March 1993. 

Mr. Yamauchi, who holds a stake in the 
company of more than 10 percent, is now 
focusing on making video games for home 
use and has put the emphasis on software. 

But many in the video-game industry 
and in the media question his strategy, 
saying 32-bit machines will transform the 
market and will pose a serious threat to 
Nintendo, which has a share of about 90 
percent of the 16-bit machine market in 
Japan. 

Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. intro- 
duced a 32-bit machine in March for 
54,800 yen. A Matsushita spokesman said 


it had been so popular that customers were 
haviiig to wait a week to get one. 

Sony Coip. and Sega Enterprises Lld. 
aiso plan to start selling their own 32-bit 
machines this year. 

Mr. Yamauchi, however, said he consid- 
ered a price of 50,000 yen for such an item 
to be extreme. The cheaper the hardware 
the better, he said, because it was software 
that really attracted users. 

He also said that he suspected consum- 
ers might not be as interested in new multi- 
media functions as makers hope. 

“If Matsushita can sell a million 32-bit 
machines in the first year, as they say. 1 
promise I will resign as Nintendo presi- 
dent,” said Mr. Yamauchi “I will leave 
because that would indicate that my busi- 
ness management has been wrong.” 

He confirmed, however, that the compa- 
ny would introduce a 64-bit Famicom in 


September 1995 for around 25,000 yen, 
although he declined to give details about

its functions. 

Nintendo's survival depends on whether 
it can succeed in making a 64-bit machine, 
said Masahiro Ono, an analyst at Yamaichi 
Research Institute. 

“Whether it can really produce a 64-bit 
machine is uncertain," said Mr. Ono. “But 
if it can, Nintendo will become the winner 
due to its strong sales network in Japan.” 

Part of Lhe secret of Nintendo’s success 
was the strategy it adopted when the indus- 
try expanded rapidly in the 19S0s, analysis 
said, adding that Nintendo allowed smaller 
companies to develop and sell software on 
its behalf. This gave it a strong domestic 
sales network, they said. 

Mr. Yamauchi is less bullish about his 
company’s overseas business, where the 
high yen has eroded profits.

A Cheaper Brew 
Is Coming to Japan 


EDUCATION DIRECTORY

NORWAY 


The Associated Press 


TOKYO —In the latest sign of 
Japan’s trend toward low-cost re- 


tailing, the biggest convenience 
store rihflm in the country said* 
Monday it planned to sell a new 
brand of beer made by Milter 
Brewing Co. for about 2D percent 
less than other beer. 

The plans by Seven- Eleven Ja- 
pan Co. are part , of a wider link 
with Miner's parent, food giant 
Philip Morris Cos. of the United 
States. 

As Japan staggers through a 
third year of recession, Japanese 
consumers who once willingly paid 
a premium for good servic e and 
quality are now increasingly seek- 
ing qut low-frills discount stores 
and other ways to save money. 

That is offering opportunities for 
U.S. companies, winch often have a 

price advantage over 

, competitors because the high yen 
means wages and other costs, such 
as land and equipment, arc lower m 
. the United States. 


He declined to say what the 
name erf the newbrand would be or 
how it differed from other beers. 
Seven-Eleven win sell the new beer 
exdnsivcfy at first, bm it is expect- 
ed lobe sold later elsewhere in 


PA r i s 


Maiihatteui’s 
civilized 
business oasis 


The beer arrangement may be 
-extended to other new products to 
be developed jointly by Seven- 
Eleven and Kraft General Foods 
International, another division of 
Philip Morris, Mr. Atiyama said. 

In addition, Seven-Eleven and 
Kraft General Foods will cooper- 
ate in 'making and selling fresh 
sandwiches throughout the United 
States, he said. 

Most Japanese in cities can buy 
fresh cold sandwiches any time at 
the thousands of 24-bour conve- 
nience stores around the country, 
but the product has not penetrated 
as deeply in the United States.

Alvarez Wins 
14th Straight 
For White Sox 


The Associated Freu 

Even when Wilson Alvarez is not 
at his best, the Chicago White Sox 
are mating it easy for him to win. 

Alvarez won his 14th straight 
regular-season decision, one shy of 
the team record, and the visiting 
White Sox defeated the Texas 
Rangers. 9-6. on Sunday. 

“1 didn't think Wilson was real 
sharp with his curve early on, but 
he kepi his composure and 1 


AL ROUNDUP 


thought he pitched well later," said 
the White Sox manager. Gene La- 
mane ‘'Some guys you score runs 
for and some you don’t. This year 
he's the recipient." 

.Alvarez gave up four runs, only 
one of them earned, and nine hits 
in seven innings. 

The WhiLe Sox are averaging 7.8 
runs in Alvarez's eight starts. Dar- 
rin Jackson capped a four-run first 
inning with a three-run homer off 
Roger Pavlik (0-lj. 

Alvarez appreciates the glut of 
runs from the White Sox, although 
his 2.3S ERA indicates that he is 
holding up his end of the deal. 

Alvarez, who also won once last 
October against Toronto in the AC 
playoffs, won his first lifetime deci- 
sion against Texas. He started his 
career with the Rangers in 1989. 
made only one start and lost when 
he failed to retire any of five bat- 
ters. 

Alvarez has not lost since Aug. 
1 1, 1 993. and he is one victory away 
from matching LaMan Hoyt's dub 
mark for consecutive wins. 

Frank Thomas had two hits, 
walked twice and drove in two 
runs. Tim Raines had a two-run 
triple and Robin Ventura drove in 
two runs. 

Pavlik, activated from the 15-day 
disabled list before the game, made 
his first appearance for the Rangers 
this season. He had been sidelined 
with a partial tear of the right rota- 
tor cuff. Pavlik lasted five innings, 
allowing six runs and seven hits. 

Mariners 9, Angels 5: Ken Grif- 
fey Jr. hit his 14th home run before 
leaving with a knee injury, and 
Randy Johnson, starting for the 
first time in nine days, was the 
winner as Seattle defeated Califor- 
nia. 

Tim Salmon homered for the 
fourth straight game for the An- 
gels, but his fifth home run in that 
span was not enough at the King- 
dome. 

Griffey connected for a solo shot 
in the first Lining off Joe Magrane. 
tying Malt Williams of San Fran- 
cisco for most homers in the ma- 
jors. 


enth with the Indians ahead. 1 1-2. 
The grounds crew at Jacobs Reid 
was unable to pull the soaked urp 
over half the infield for 36 minutes. 

Lofton had three hits, extending 
his hitting streak to 14 games, and 
matched his career high for runs 
scored. 

In earlier games, reported Mon- 
day in some editions of the Herald 
Tribune: 

Yankees 12, Brewers I: New 
York won its 10th straight as Don 
Mattingly. Wade Boggs and Bemie 
Williams homered in a rout in Mil- 
waukee. 

The Yankees' winning streak is 
their longest since they won JO 
straight in 1987. New York won all 
three games at County Stadium, its 
Hist sweep in Milwaukee since 
1971. 

Paul O'Neill went 2-for-3, rais- 
ing his major-league-leading aver- 
age to .467. as the Yankees won for 
the 20th time in 24 games. The 
Brewers lost their fifth in a row. 

Twins 5, Orioles 2: Kevin Tapani 
pitched a five-hitter and Minnesota 
swept Baltimore at the Metrodome. 
The Orioles' three-game losing 
streak is their longest of the season. 

Tapani struck out four, walked 
one and retired 16 of the last 17 
batters. He began the game with a 
7.78 ERA, but led ihe Twins to 
their seventh victory in eight 
games. 

Rafael Palmeiro of the Orioles 
extended his hitting streak to 18 
games, longest in the majors this 
season. 

Athletics 6, Royals 2: In Kansas 
City. Todd Van Poppel won for the 
first lime this year and helped Oak- 
land put together its first two-game 
winning streak in nearly a month. 

Van Poppel began the day with a 
9.59 ERA. and gave up three 
straight extra-base nits to start the 
game. After that, he allowed only 
two more hits and left after 5 Vs 
innings with a 4-2 lead. 

Dennis Eckersley got his third 
save and second in two days. Jeff 
Granger. Kansas City’s top draft 
pick last year, also went 5'^ in- 
nings. 

Ruben Sierra had three hits, 
scored one run and drove in one for 
the A's.

Mitchell, who spent four-plus seasons with 
the Giants, hit a solo home run in the 10th 
inning that sent the Cincinnati Reds over San 
Francisco. 9-6, on Sunday and ended their 10- 
game losing streak against the Giants. 

Mitchell hit his 11th home run with one 
out off Rod Beck to break a 6-6 tie and give 


NL ROUNDUP 


another former Giant, Jeff Brantley, the vic- 
tory in relief. 

"Jefr and 1 are used to playing here, and 
that helps," Mitchell said "Beck knew what 
he was trying to do, and he knew what 1 was 
trying to do. I got a pitch I could hit.” 

After Mitchell's homer, Reggie Sanders 
followed with a double to left, then Bret 
Boone hit a ball to the right-field comer that 
the first-base umpire, Mark Hirschbeck, 
ruled a home run. 

Bob BrerJy, the Giants' coach, who was in 


the bullpen near the foul pole, immediately 


ran over to Hirschbeck to protest ihe call, 
bringing San Francisco's manager. Dusty

r« 

Baker pulled Beck, who had recorded 
saves in the last two games. The homer to 
Mitchell was the first run the right-hander 
bad given up in eight appearances this sea- 
son, out he would not blame fatigue. 

Brantley, dropped by the Giants after last 
season, was booed by Candlestick Park fans 
when he came on to pitch. But he went the 
final two innings for the victory, which end- 
ed the Giants' three-game winning streak 
and dropped them into a first-place lie with 
Los Angeles in the NL West. 

Rockies 4, Astros 0: Armando Reynoso 
pitched well at the Astrodome, and Andres 
Galarraga’s home run in the second proved 
derisive as Colorado continued it dominance 
of Houston, 

After winning two of three in the series, 
the second-year Rockies are 13-3 against the 
Astros. 

Dodgers 7, Padres 1: Tim Wallach and 
Raul Mondesi drove in two runs apiece, and 
Tom Candiotti ended his four-game winless 


streak as the Dodgers beat San Diego in Los 
Angeles for their sixth straight victory. 

Mike P iazza added an RBI double, Henry 
Rodriguez had a sacrifice fly and Candiotti 
squeezed home a run as the Dodgers swept 
the three-game series. The loss was the sev- 
enth straight for San Dirao. 

Candiotti earned his first triumph since 
opening the season with three straight wins. 
The right-hander, coming off three consecu- 
tive no-dcciaons. allowed five hits, struck 
out seven and walked one in his third com- 
plete game. 

In earlier games, reported Monday in some 
editions of the Herald Tribune: 

PUHes 1, Pirates <h Lenny Dykstra, the 
league's leader with 39 runs, scored in the 
first inning, and Philadelphia hong on for a 
four-game sweep of visiting Pittsburgh. 

Shawn Boskie allowed four hits In six in- 
nings, leading the Phillies' to their season-high 
fourth straight victory. Dong Jones, the fourth 
Philadelphia pitcher, worked out of a jam in 
the top of the ninth for his seventh save. 

Martins 3, Cubs 0; Chris Hammond ex- 
tended his scoreless streak to a club-record 
22 innings and helped himself with a double 
and a suicide squeeze as Florida blanked 
visiting Chicago. 


Hammond held the Cubs to four bits in 
five inning ? and did not permit a Cub to 
reach third base. Although he has not al- 
lowed a ran since April 29, Hammond was 
removed for a pinch-hitter m the sixth for 
precautionary reasons aiW experiencing 
stiffness in his lower back. 

Expos 9, CanUnah Jfc St Louis wasted a 
season-high 16 hits by Mowing a four-run 
lead in the bottom of the rtinthm Montreal. 

Two runs were in before Rich Rodriguez 
relieved and allowed an RBI double to Larry 
Walker; After Moises Alov was walked' in- 
tentionally, Lenny Webster hit a.daasive 
tingle. 

Braves 6 , Meta 1: Steve Avery pitched 
right strong innings, and Javy Lbpez hit two 
homers as Atlanta atoned for its worst 
formance this season with the victory in 
York. ... 

Avery struck out « season-high nine and 
allowed five hits is winning hs third straight 
game. The Braves, who lost 11-4 Saturday, 
took out some frustration on Eric Hillman in 
the first - 

Fred McGriff, who went 3-f or-4, homered 
fra the third time in four games. Lopez, who 
drove in three runs, followed with his first 
homer of the game.

In the third, Griffey slightly hy-

ing on a force play. He later scored 
on a wild pitch, but left after the 
inning, and his status is day-to-day. 

Indians 11, Tigers 6 : Albert Belle

and Kenny Lofton homered and

Cameroon’s Old Lion Hopes to Roar Again at World Cup 


By Christopher Clarey 

New York Times Service 

YAOUNDE Cameroon — In the 
patchy grass that surrounds the Omni- 
sport Stadium, not far from an unsightly 
stretch of chain-link fence, stands a life- 
size sculpture of Roger Milla. 

It was put in place not long after soc- 
cer’s 1990 World Cup, when Mills, the 
so-called Old Lion, improbably led his 
team to a place in the quarterfinals and a 
place in a lot of hearts and minds. 

Like most man-made things in this 
humid West African climate, the sculp- 
ture of Milla is showing signs of decay. 
Green paint is peeling off his shirt; red 


paim is coining off his shorts. His left 
arm is missing from the elbow down, and 
the right is dangling as if it might not last 
until this summer's World Cup, which 
starts June 17 in the United States. 

The real Mil la is in considerably better 
shape He is 42. and after three years 
away from world-class soccer and in the 
face' of much naysaying from teammates 
and the new national coach, Henri Mi- 
chel, he has resumed his playing career. 

Milla's oft-stated objectivs is to score 
goals in the United States, just as he 
scored them in Italy four years ago: by 


sleight of foot that two decades of high- 
el soco 


coming off the bench at the most oppor- 


tune moments and summoning all the 


levd soccer has taught him, 

“I know I can't go 90 minutes, but l 
know I can still go 25 or 30,” said Milla. 

"I am a center forward, and what a 
center forward has to do is capitalize on 
the opportunities that come his way." he 
added. M I can still do that. Right now I 
am probably about at 60 percent of my 
highest level. I cannot be at 100 percent 
anymore, but 80 should be good enough 
and after six more weeks of training and 
matches, I will get there.” 

Michel, a former coach of the French 
national team, is far from convinced. 

From the moment he took charge of 
Cameroon’s team in January, be was re- 


! squat 

Old lion kept fulfilling Michel's require- 
ments; rejoining bis former dub in 
Yaounde. Le Tonnerre, and going on to 
score six goals in 10 matches. 


“I am very fond of Roger, and it’s 
difficult to judge, but I know perfectly 
weD what you are capable of doing after 
four years away from top competition," 
Mkhri said. 


“It is the Cameroonian people who 
pushed me to come back,” said Milla. 
“Without them, I would have stayed at 
home and kept living the quiet life.” 


In the face of such public and, accord- 
ing to some reports, governmental pres- 
sure, and with Milla already playing a role 
on (he team as its administrative director, 
Mkhd finally wem against his better judg- 
ment and included h5n on his list of .play- 
ers for an Asian tour this month. 


“I know what is possible,- no matter 
how much talent and experience, you . 
have,” he added. “I don’t tinnk he wifi be 
able to do it, and I was very frank with 
him about that.” 


m. “Maybe H< 
doesn't realize who is in from of him,” he 
said. ”He doesn’t know how 2 work or 
how 1 react when I am in a stadium. All I : 
ask is for him to judge me during the 
matches, that’s alL” . ' ‘

■DALLAS — Neal Lancaster 
won the largest sudden-death play- 
off in the history of the U.S. PGA 
Tour, beating five others for the 
title in the storm-shortened Byron 
Nelson Qassic. 

Lancaster won for the first time 
in his five years on the tour when he 
sank a 4-foot (L2-tneter) birdie 
putt on the first extra hole Sunday 
miheTPC at Las Colinas. He beat 
David Edwards, Yoshi Mizumati. 
Tom Byrum and Mark Camevale. 
all having completed rate round on 
each of two rain-soaked courses in 
9-under-par 131 The tournament 
was reduced to a 36-hole format 
following a series of rainstorms. 

The six-man field for the playoff 
was the largest in U.S. PGA Tour 
history ana capped one of the 
tour's shortest tournaments; It was 
the first sincetbe 1986 Pensacola 
Open to be- cut by weather to 3v ~ 
holes, the nrinhnom to be recog- 
nized as an official event. 

. Lancaster, whomever before had 
finished higher than fifth, gets the 
full winner's benefits; a place in the 
World Series of Golf, next year's 
Mastcrs and Ufi. Tournament of 
Champions.. He also collects the 
full purse; ■ 

‘ Greg Norman. the British Open 
cha mpion , Wasted Tour officials 
after the tournament. 

“I don’t think It’s a golf tourna- 
ment, to tdl the truth,” he said. 
“The sponsors are very generous to 
let the full money ride but I don't 
think this should be a qualifying 
tournament, although under the 
rules of the PGA Tour, an event is 
considered official after 36 holes.” 

Norman, this year’s leading tour 
money winner, finished two shots 
behind - (AP, Reuters)

have said the reduction in down- 
force could feasibly be achieved in 
time for Barcelona, they were con- 
cerned that the changes for Cana- 
da. including increased driver pro- 
tection in the cockpit, would 
involve redesigning the cars with- 
out proper time for testing. 

Growing concern over engine 
power — FlA does not plan to 
introduce any form of reduction 
until the Canadian race — may also 
put itiis year's Italian Grand Prix at 
risk. 

Marco Piccinnini. of the Italian 
motor sports federation, said that 
his organization was reserving the 
right to cancel the race, set for Sept. 
U. until it was satisfied with the 
safety measures.

The Associated Prar . ..." 
Scottie Pippen was there for the 
Chicago Bulls when they needed 
him . Ditto Hakeem OLmrwon for 
Houston and Reggie WuHaais to 
Denver. 


Pippen, .who rebelled - against 
PhD Jackson when the Bulls' coach 
did not call a play to him in the 
final seconds of Game 3 {gainst 
New York, watched from the side' 
lines as Toni Kukoc’s basket won 
that game. 

Before Game 4 on Sunday, Pip- 
pen patched things up with ins 
coach and teammates, then scored 
25 points in the Bulls* 95-83 viettny 
that evened the four-of -seven-game 
series at 2rZ 

“I put it behind me,” Pippen said 
after the game. “1 apologized to the 
team and to Phil Jackson. I "don't 
think I have ro apologize to anyone 
rise.” 

While the Bulls made it four con- 
secutive victories to the home 
team in that sates, the Rockets 
made it four straight to the road 
lam in their series agains t Phoe- 
nix, winning 1 07-96. Otegnwon had 
28 points and 12 rebounds, most of 
than afro - taking an elbow in the 
face in the first quarter. 

In Denver, the Nuggets avoided 
the first four-game sweep in team 
history- when Williams nit a 22- 
footer with 1.9 seconds left in an 
83-82 victory over Utah, which still 
leads the series 3-1. 

New Yak lost its eighth straight 
playoff game at Chicago Stadium, 
the 65-year-old arena that is shut- 
ting down after this season. 

Horace Grant added 18 points 
to the Bulls. Patrick Ewing led the 






The changes for Barcelona will 
reduce speeds by cutting the cars' 
downforce by 15 percent. They 
were pan of a package announced 
Friday by FlA's president. Max 
Mosley, in the aftermath of crashes 
that killed Ayrton Senna and Ro- 
land Ratzenberger and left Karl 
Wen diin ger in a coma. 

Although there was widespread 
agreement within Formula One cir- 
cles that changes were needed, 
there was unhappiness that Mosley 
had acted unilaterally. 

But at Monday's meeting — at- 
tended by the driver representatives 
Michael Schumacher and Gerhard 
Berger, among others — there was a 
consensus that differences should be 
set aside temporarily. 

While Formula One engineers 


■ Unger in Indy 500 Pole 

Al Unser Jr. waited exactly 24 
hours to win the pole for the May 
29 Indianapolis 500 when his 
Penske- Mercedes teammate Emer- 
son Fittipaldi could cot go fast 
enough on Sunday to lake the spot 
away. Reuters reported. 

Unser qualified at 228.011 miles 
per hour (366.938 kph) Saturday. 
Bui rain delayed qualifying, so nine 
drivers still had a shot at knocking 
him off the pole Sunday. The weath- 
er turned hot. however, and a wick- 
ed breeze blew across the track’s 
short chutes. This slowed the cars 
and Fittipaldi could only manage a 
third-fastest 227.303 mph. 

Joining Unser and Fittipaldi in 
the front row is another Brazilian, 
Raul Boesel. He qualified his Lola- 
Ford Coswonh on Saturdav at 
227.618 mph.

The game was tightly called after 
a melee on Friday night between 
rite teams. New York played with- 
out its iMarting point guard, Derek 
Harper, who was. suspended to 
two games for bis part in the fight 

But the. difference- was Pippen,. 
who was a combined 2-for-13 m the

fourth quarter of the first three 
games before his shdown. 

Without its tqrbaBhandlec, New 
Yak played sloppily m the fust 
half, as 15 turnovers helped the 
Bulls take a 53-41 lead. New York 
finished with 24 tomovas. : 

Rockets 187, Suds 96 Objuwon 
and Otis Thorpe dominated inside, 
and Kenny Smith and Mario Efie 
scored from outside as Houston 
woo its second straight in the 
America West Arena .after two dis- 
couraging losses at home.

the fourth quarter and Thorpe fin- 
ished with 12 points' and 13 . re-

came Kevin Johnson's second 
straight 38 -point, 12-assist game. 

Charles Barkley, who had 19 
points and 14 rebounds, was the 
only other Phoenix player in dou- 
ble figures. ' ...

trying to become the first NBA 
team to come back from a 3-0 defi-

Nuggets, in upsetting Seattle in the 
first round, have already become 
the first No. 8 seed to defeat a

The American Sweater 


W ASHINGTON— I was in a 
deoanmenl store the other 


m 


W department store the other 
day when I came across something 
amazing. { found a mens lamb's- 
wool sweater with a label that read 
“Made in the USA.” I called over 
the sales clerk and said. “What are 
you doing selling an American 
sweater in an American depart- 
ment store?" 

He responded: “There must be 
some mistake. We sell Chinese 
sweaters. Ma- 
laysian sweaters. 

Polish sweaters 
and Hong Kong 
sweaters, but we >. 
don't carry- 

sweaters made 
in this country.” 

“Look.” ’ 1 
pointed out. 

“the label 

couldn't be 
clearer." Budwald 

‘TO call the manager." he said 
nervously. In a minute the manager 
came sprinting over. The sales clerk 
showed him the sweater. After 
carefully examining it, he said. 
“This has to be a shipping mistake. 
We haven’t had any ‘Made in the 
USA’ sweaters in 10 years.” 

□ 

“1 think it’s a beautiful sweater ” 
1 told him. “May / buy it?” 

“1 don’t have the authority to sell 
any American goods in this depart- 
ment. We handle European clothes. 
Mexican clothes, shim from the 
Dominican Republic and socks im- 


ported from Costa Rica. This 
sweater is so unusual that it could 
be classified as a collector's item. 1 
think 1 may put it in our display- 
window on the Fourth of July." 

“Since I found il. 1 believe that I 
should be the one to buy iL“ 

“J have to call headquarters be- 
fore 1 can sell il." He went to ihe 
phone to call his New York office. I 
listened to the conversation.

CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 



NEA Gives Grants 
Of $78 Million 


The Associated Press 

ASHTNGTON — The Na- 


W ASH1NGTON — The Na- 
tional Endowment for the 
Arts has announced $78 million in 
grants across the United States, 
from symphonies to dance compa- 
nies to film preservation groups. 

All the ^ants, except those to 
individuals, require a match of at 
least SI for every federal dollar 
granted, which officials expect will 
help raise about S500 million in 
matching funds for the arts. 

Visual artists, musical festivals, 
opera and musical theater compa- 
nies, folk arts, literary publishing, 
community groups and museums 
were also recipients. 


“You’re not going to believe 
this but a customer found a 'Made 
in the USA’ sweater in the men's 
deparimeni. ... I don’t know- 
how the hell it got there, but I'm 
not taking responsibility for sell- 
ing it in the same bin with those 
that just came in from Icelan- 
d. . . . Yes. it looks great and 
just as good as the ones from Chi- 
na. I think that the American 
sweater makers are beginning to 
get the hang of it . . . You want 
me to send it up to New York to 
show our buyers? . . . Will do." 

He hung up and said to me. 
“They want to lake a look ai it in 
New York. Most of our people 
have never seen clothing made in 
the USA before.’’ 

J protested. “It was on sale and 
since I found it I feel that I am 
entitled to buy it. 1 have sweaters 
from all over the world but this one 
is unique and I’d like to add it to 
my collection. If you don’t want a 
lawsuit on your hands you had bet- 
ter hand it over." 

The word “lawsuit” made him 
uneasy and he started to fold the 
sweater, constantly checking die la- 
bel (o make sure that fus eyes 
weren't deceiving him. 

□ 

“May I see your driver’s h- 
ceose?' 5 he asked.* 

“What for?" 

“I’m not going to sell an Ameri- 
can-made sweater to just any- 
body." 

I handed over my license. 

*T don't think you'll find another 
one like this in the city.” he told me 


the grueling task of promoting — ihe 
French call it, defending — his film, five 
years in the making. A chesty man. he has 
an athletic way of taking on ihe job. 
throwing himself into the' fray. 

Launched by the festival gala and ex- 
traordinary media buzz, “La Reine Mar- 
got” is attracting crowds in France, but 
Cannes is also a market and ihe film's 
iniernaiiona) career takes oif here, u-hich 
is why Chereau and all the cast — wiih ihe 
exception of Adjani — have been going to 
bat overtime, especially for the finicky 
American audience here. “Bloody 'Mar- 
got' Fails to Fascinate.” the headline of 
Variety’s review, was a cruel cut “It’s a 
mystery to me." Chereau says, looking 
pained^ “Too much blood! There’s much 
more in American movies! But perhaps it 
is less believable; that might be the prob- 
lem.” 

Blood and poison flowed freely id 
Q ueen Margot’s court and the director 
doesn't deny that the royal family under 
the thumb of Catherine de' Medici be- 
haved like mafiosi, and if his imagery was 
influenced by Rembrandt and Zurbarin. 
he got an idea or two from Visconti's “The 
Damned,” Coppola's “The Godfather" 
and Scorsese's “GoodFellas." "I wanted 
to show die madness of those times — a 
tragically contemporary period —and the 
horror of the Saint Bartholomew Massa- 
cre." he says. 

The movie, produced by Claude Bern 
and written with Daniile Thompson, and 
loosely based on .Alexandre Dumas's 
book, was designed from the start to be a

because I felt that 1 could take it on. 
wrestle with it. ‘La Reine Margot remind- 
ed me of thing? Tve date on stage. 

The treatment look six months to do. 
“The crux of ihe problem was right there 
— a huge, costly production, dozens of

flamboyant production: “My pleasure was 
dose to the pleasure 1 got when I staged 
the ’Ring’ in BayTeuth.” The pan of Queen 
Margot was written for Adjani: "One of 
the most intelligent actresses 1 know, she 
knows how io read a script." 

He designed the part to show Margot’s 
transformation after the horrors of the 
massacre. “In the novel, she's just a wom- 
an in love who lives a great romance in the 
midst of havoc. In the movie, she changes, 
switching from arrogance to compassion 
— it*s that inner journey that interested 
me." 


“J think you're right. Disccver- 
: a ‘Made in the USA* product in 


ing a ‘Made in the USA' product in 
a store is a once-in-a-lifetime 
event.” 

“Don’t you want to try it on?” he 
said. 

“No. I'm going to put it in a safe 
deposit box for my grandchild. I 
want him to have pan of this coun- 
try’s history.” 


A man who lives at a high pilch, Cher- 
cau was named director or the Theatre des 
Amandiers in Nanierre in 1982; he left in 
1990 to work on “Margot.” In his long, 
prestigious career, he has staged Moliere. 
Shakespeare. Ibsen. Chekhov-. Genet. 
Botho Strauss and Bernard-Marie Koties. 
He has also acted, in Andrzej Wajda's 
“Damon," Youssef Qiahine’s “Adieu Bo- 
naparte,” and recently as a French general 
in Michael Mann’s “The Last of the Mohi- 
cans,” a fond memory. 

“There are directors who hardly speak; 
1 speak too much. When I played in ‘The 
Last of the Mohicans.’ Michael Mann nev- 
er gave me any directions. One day he said, 
you know. Patrice. . . I said what? I 
thought, what's he going to tell me? He 
said, Hmm . . . You know what I mean? 
. . . Less is more, you know Mies van der 
Rohe? And I understood that my face 
looked too animated in the closeup. 

“I talk too much because I know you 
have to find the word that sparks some- 
thing. that vibrates in the actor’s head. 1 
found one or two key words during re- 
hearsals with Isabelle. When we started 
shooting, she was suspicious." 


He finds it normal that an actor or an 
actress should be suspicious of the director 
— “an actress can be ruined by the direc- 
tor. like when somebody has a bad experi- 
ence making love; after, you don't want to 
do it a gain , no? So 1 have to show the 
actors fm not their enemy, because if 
they’re comfortable, it’s good for me: The 
better they axe. the beuer I am.” 

The queen is at the center of the movie, 
he points out. but she’s not all of the 
movie; the others count too. TsabeUe 
could have wanted more of a part, but the 
other roles were important too. In France, 
when a star like Isabelle. Catherine Den- 
euve or Depardieu is on screen — you see 
only them, and there’s nobody around 
them. But I love the big American movies 
like Capra’s ‘It’s a Wonderful life,’ or 
Lubiiscn s The Shop Around the Comeri 
— all the supporting pans are important. 
It's a tradition that comes from the the- 
ater, but it’s not a French tradition. I tried 
to have ensemble acting in my movie and 
make parts, like the hangman, a real char- 
acter. 


— a huge, costly production, dozens of 
characters, plots and over 1,000 paps. 
Then DaniHe and 1 read it to Isabelle. 

Thompson was vital to the project, even 
though she and Chfcreau come from dia- 
metrically imposed worlds. “In Fnpp 6 - 
there are Hans, and Dantcle was light- 
years removed from my worii” be says, 
Thompson, the daughter of the director 
Gerard Oury, has written some of her 

father’s hit comedies. „ 

“I have a problem writing a script. 

Chfcreau says. “I need a 
bodv who can rewrite too. In Hollywoou 
square fwrrttten — naaybe too much; 
think a script has to change, grow and 
transform; it’s living matter, a tool. 

He knew Thompson as a friend and 
thought a collaboration might work, ‘ w I 
was afraid mv friends would be horrified 
by my choice so I went to see ber on the 
slv. I hadn’t seen many of her movies, but I 
liked who she was.” 

The production broke down several 
times along the way. It was difficult to find 
money, and at one point Adjani disap- 
peared. “You couldn't find her any- 
where.” Chereau says. 

The director and his partners took many 
liberties with Dumas’s novel. “I wanted to 
keep the essen tials , but the film had to
