Aid Is Taken ‘Hostage’ 
In Rwandan Camps 

People Behind Earlier Massacres 
Terrorise Refugees and Divert Relief 

By Raymond Bonner 

New York Times Service 

GOMA, Zaire — From the former 
president and generals down to village 
mayors and militias, the men who 
planned and carried out the massacre of 
tens of thousands of Rwandans earlier 
this year are now terrorizing hundreds 
of thousands erf refugees who fled the 
civil war and are living in squalid camps 
here, refugees and relief workers say. 

Young toughs control the distribu- 
tion of relief food, which they steal in 
bulk and then sell, while the most needy 
— pregnant women, children, the sick 
and the elderly — are pushed aside. 

In the camps, the former leaders, 
members of the Hutu ethnic group who 
were defeated by the Tutsi-led Rwan- 
dan Patriotic Front, are conducting a 
campaign of rumors and terror to keep 
the refugees from going home. 

The refugees are also Hutu, but by 
keeping them here the former Rwandan 
leaders hope to deprive the new govern- 
ment of legitimacy. At the same time, 
the army of the former government has 
regrouped and is preparing to mount 
another war. 

“The refugee population has been 
taken hostage by its former leaders,” 
said Mario Goethals, director of Doc- 
tors Without Borders-Belgium, an aid 
group that led the fight against cholera 
in the camps last summer and still has a 
hundred doctors here. 

Relief groups are also hostages, he 
said, because to do anything requires 
working through the former leaders. 

The situation has reached the point 
where Doctors Without Borders and 
other nongovernmental organizations 
are thinking about polling out. 

Joel Boutroue, director of operations 

here for the UN High Commissioner for 
Refugees, has described the ethical 
problems that he says are “haunting** 
both nongovernmental and UN aid 

In a recent memorandum to the agen- 
cy’s headquarters in Geneva he wrote: 

. “The fact that we are indirectly as- 
sisting several thousand persons with a 
bloody past and eventually helping 
them lo regain strength for future mili- 
tary activities is not a happy thought, 
but it is a fact.'* 

Because of “the seriousness of the 
charges against some segments of the 
population in the camps as well as the 
prospects of renewed militar y activities 
by these same elements.” Mr. Boutroue 
wrote, the refugee agency had been 
compelled to “radically reconsider’* its 

“We may be better off withdrawing.” 
he said. 

Relief groups often find themselves 
dealing with unsavory leaders. In Soma- 
lia, for example, the aid effort has sus- 
tained the various faction leaders, Mr. 
Goethals said. 

“What disting uishes this situation 
from others is mat there was a geno- 
cide,’' he said. “This makes it morally 
different You ask yourself. Are you 
going to continue supporting, indirect- 
ly, what happened in Rwanda?” 

“It doesn't have anything to do with 
politics,” Mr. Goethals said about the 
discussion among relief agencies about 
whether to withdraw. “It's about ethics 
and morality, about the highest human 
values we have.” 

More than 70 nongovernmental relief 
organizations have staff at the camps in 
Zaire. Every day, huge cargo planes

EU Holds First Talks With Eastern Europeans on Membership 

By Tom Buerkle - 

iniematwnaf Herald Tribune - 

LUXEMBOURG —The European Union held its 
first substantive discussions about eventual member- 
ship with the countries of Eastern Europe on Monday 
in a meeting that the former Soviet satellites hope will 
lead to their full acceptance in the West by the end of 
the decade. 

“The challenge that confronts us is an enormous 
one.” said Foreign Minister Klaus Kinkel of Germa- 
ny, which has pressed hardest to bring its eastern 

neighbors into the Union. “We must bring Europe 
together and create t new political order Tor Europe u* 
a whole.” 

The meeting on Monday was the first among for- 
eign ministers since the Union agreed earlier in Octo- 
ber to schedule regular meetings with the Eastern 
countries to prepare for membership. Officials said 
the talks focused on practical details and avoided the 
harsh debates over membership timetables that have 
characterized earlier, more symbolic gatherings. 

Foreign Minister Andraq Olechowski said Poland 

needed an “implicit ti.merabl-r" for membership, pref- 
erably by the year 2uG0, _.'ii coulJ adjust ii* laws to 
the requirements of the EU single market at an appro- 
priate pace. 

No formal agreements were struck Monday, but if 
EU minis ters can agree to the details of a membership 
strategy at a meeting in Brussels on Nov. 2S. Germany 
is likely to invite Eastern heads of government to a 
meeting in Essen on Dec. 9 and 10 to sign a deal 
officials said. 

Sir Leon Briuan, the high-profile commissioner 

No. 34,734 

who has led the drive to bring the East into the Union, 
said the session produced "a quantum leap” in those 

The talks were partly overshadowed, however, by 
the ElTs own disarray on the handling of policy 
toward the East after Sir Leon was stripped of his 
authority over the weekend.

For President 
By End of ’95 

Step, Shortening Term, 
Appears to Be a Gesture 
To BannedlskunicFront

ALGIERS — President Li amine Zer- 
oual, struggling against a Muslim funda- 
mentalist insurgency, announced Monday 
that a presidential election would take 
place in Algeria by the end of 1995. 

The announcement, which would cut 
Mr. Zer oual’s term by at least one year, 
appeared to be a gesture by the military- 
backed government to Muslim fundamen- 
talists, who were denied an election victory 
in January 1992. 

The resulting conflict has left more than 
10,000 people dead, including 68 foreign- 
ers, and cost billions of dollars. 

‘'The moment has come to remove the 
obstacles to people's expression and to 
allow them to speak directly,” Mr. Zeroual 
said. “I’ve decided that the presidential 
elections will take place before the end of 

Mr. Zeroual made the announcement 
during his first broadcast speech to the 
nation, marking the 40tb anniversary of 
the be ginning of the six-year war for inde- 
pendence against France. 

Over the weekend, the president issued a 
statement after months of talks with politi- 
cal parties, many in effect acting as surro- 
gates for the banned Islamic Salvation 

“In spite of all the efforts, the positions 
between the different parties and between 
the parties and the state, including the 
position of the banned party, remain far 
apart,” the statement said. 

Presidential elections had not been due 
until the end of 1996, after a hastily con- 
trived presidential council was put togeth- 
er when the general election was canceled 
and the then-president. Chadli Bendjedid. 
resigned. The council, whose leader and 
head of state, Mohammed Boudiaf, was 
assassinated six months later, said at the 
time that it would rule up to the normal 
expiration of Colonel Bendjedid's term.

nounce any plans for parliamentary vot- 
ing. In December 1991, the Islamic Front 
took a majority share of seats in the first 
round of parliamentary voting. The runoff 
planned in January 1992 was canceled.

ary for what was to be a three-year term, 
said he would dedicate his efforts to pre- 
pare “the conditions for a return to the 
electoral process." (AP. Reuters) 

Muslim Gains 
In Bosnia Mask 

By John Pomfret 

Washington Pan Service 

BUGOJNO, Bosnia- Herzegovina — As 
Emir Muslimovic crept up a boulder- 
strewn knoll overlooking the town of 
Kupres last week and pounced on the back 
of a Bosnian Serbian fighter old enough to 
be his fa ther and slit bis throat, two 
thoughts powered him: going home and 
getting even. 

Mr. Muslimovic and seven other sol- 
diers. in the mostly Muslim Bosnian Army 
seized the artillery observation post from 

the rebel Serbs easily and without gunfire. 

T A comrade killed another Serb by collaps- 
ing his skull with a rifle-butt jab to the 
face. Other Serbs fled in disarray. Then 
orders came to halt the advance. 

“It wasn’t good to kill them, especially 
that old man," Mr. Muslimovic said, fash- 
ioning a cigarette from notebook paper 
and imiddv tobacco ami d the squalor of a 
slit trench in a mountainous forest aflame 
with the colors of fall “But they've been 
doing the same to us for too long.” 

The miniature victory on Hill 44, about 
20 kilometers (12 miles) outside the Mus- 
lim-held town of Bugqjno on the road to 
Serbian-controlled Kupres, was just one in 
a series of recent Muslim successes. As 
Bosnia's civil war enters its third winter, 
momentum seems to have swung — at 
least for the moment — to the Muslims. 

From a one-sided slaughter in which 
heavily armed forces of the Bosnian Serbs 
foiled back Muslim troops at will, the war 
has changed to a set of pitched battles m 
Bosnia’s wilderness. Lightly armed bands 
°f government troops increasingly harass 
and occasionally defeat thinly stretched 
Serbian toughs. At a recent briefing. Unit- 
ed Nations intelligence officers said Mus- 
lim forces, sometimes no larger than a 
company of 100 men, were attacking Ser~

Fast-Money Crowd 
Moves Elsewhere 

By Erik Ipsen 

International Herald Tribune 

LONDON — In the foreign-exchange 
market, the undisputed leviathan of the 
world’s financial markets, where billions 
of dollars* worth of currencies change 
hands every day, the mood is bleak. 

After two years as a source of staggering 
profits to speculators and of annoyance to 
finance ministers and central bankers who 
ate their economic game plans in order to 
defend their currencies from the wrath of 
the market, this year the market itself is 

Suddenly bored by nine months of ma- 
jor losses or meager profits, the fast-money 
crowd — the leveraged hedge funds and 
other purely speculative players — have 
decamped, taking their billions with them. 

“It would be unduly optimistic and 
hopeful to say that this is a shift of the 
moment,” said an executive at a large pri- 
vate bank in London who began to rede- 
ploy people and capital away from the 
foreign-exchange market last June. 

The effects of those quiet withdrawals 
are evident in a market that unites banks.

investment managers and what market 
professionals call “end users" — compa- 
nies that need foreign currencies to buy or 
sell goods across boundaries — into a 
seemless 24-hour-a-day electronic bazaar 
that is estimated to process a trillion dol- 
lars annually. 

“These are the most illiquid markets f 
have ever seen,” said Paul Chertkow, a 
veteran currency strategist with Union 
Bank of Switzerland in London. 

The lack of liquidity belies the headlines 
erf new postwar lows for the dollar, and of 
soaring values for the yen and for the 
Deutsche mark. Currency traders grouse 
about a “trendless” year, and about the 
notable absence of winning bets. 

Christian Dunis, head of research and 

foreign exchange trading at Chemical 
Bank in London, acknowledges that for 
the “man on the street" who has seen the 
dollar fall from 1.72 DM at the beginning 
of the year to around 1.50 DM now, this 
may all seem illogical. The problem, he 
says, is that the dollar moves “one or two 
big figures" one day and then gives most of 
it back the next. 

The big money in the forex market is 
made on a sustained, shaip move in one 
direction. Today's players have lo content 
themselves with relatively smaller win- 
nings on far tighter ranges of fluctuation. 

Increasingly, speculators and even the 
biggest currency-trading commercial 
banks are shifting their resources else- 
where — to such markets as commodities 
or bonds, where the potential for profit is 
much larger. 

Some analysts blame the exodus partly 
on a market that had simply grown over- 
crowded and over-extended. 

Bankers are notorious for their herd 
instincts, said Richard Layard-Leisching, 
director of research at Pareio Partners, a 
currency-management firm. 

Early this year, when the dollar con- 
founded the overwhelming consensus by 
beading south and then holding to that 
course in fits and starts, the losses began to

Halloween Vilified as Pagan Holiday 

By Laurie Goodstdn 

Washington Pen Service 

WASHINGTON — Halloween once 
had a beloved place in the pantheon of 
American holidays, as wholesome as 
Thanksgiving turkey or Fourth of July 
fireworks. But some concerned Chris- 
tians are peeking under Halloween's 
mask and seeing Satan — and persuad- 
ing many schools, churches and homes 
around the country to alter drastically 
or shut down altogether their holiday 

Schools in Howard County, Mary- 
land, notified parents this year not to 
send their children to class dressed as 
ghosts or witches, and black cat decora- 
tions are disappearing from classrooms. 
Elementary schools in Ohio and New 
York replaced the traditional parties 
and parades for Halloween, which was 

Monday night, with a “Harvest Festi- 
val” celebration and a “Read Across 
America Week.” 

Churches in Atlanta and Sacramento, 
California, that once created elaborate 
haunted houses as fund-raisers instead 
held “Hallelujah Night,” where the 
child with the best biblical costume gpt 
the biggest prize. 

All of which suggests that in the

battleground in the conflict over family

In traditional Hindu soci- 
ety, there is no fate worse than 
to be left a widow. At the very 
least, widows — even those 
from urban, middle-class fam- 
ilies — are forbidden to wear 
bangles and the decorative 
bhineti dot between their eyes, 
vermilion in their hair and the 
bright-colored saris of a mar- 
ried woman. At worst, in some 
rural villages, widows are often

Home by Christmas? Troops in Haiti Want That Action, Too 

By Tod Robbereon 

> Washington Pest Service 

— U.S. servicemen in Haiti say 
they fed betrayed and ignored 
by their c ommander in chief af- 
ter President Bill Clinton’s 
comments to U.S. troops in Ku- 
wait that they should expect to 
be home for Christmas. 

. “Clinton can go halfway 
around the world," said Private 
First Class Dan DeCristo, “but 
he can’t take a quick hop off the 
coast of Florida to come talk to

Senior U.S. officials said the 
16,000 service personnel in Hai-

Although no date had been 
set for a United Nations multi- 
national force to relieve the 
U.S. troops, the expectation 
had been December, after par- 
liamentary elections. A U.S. of-

being pushed back to March 
because of political and logistic 
problems, including the Gkely

That news, combined with 
Mr. Clinton's remarks in Ku-

ous morale problem, according 
to various officers and enlisted 
personnel of the 10th Mountain 
Divirion interviewed in their 
makeshift barracks atop a for-

Reformers Take Beating in Moscow Vote 




By Fred Hiatt 

Washmgton Post Service 

MOSCOW — In what many 
described as a bellwether elec- 
tion, voters have elected to Par- 
liament the head of an invest- 
ment firm that collapsed in the 
most spectacular failure of Rus- 
sia’s young capitalist era, hand- 
ing defeat to both a swastika- 
bearing ultranationalist and a 
free- market democrat 
The Sunday by-election in a 
dreary industrial district north 
of Moscow, made necessary by 
the gangland-style shooting of 
the incumbent last spring re- 
flected the disillusion and dis- 
gust many voters now feel for 
government, analysts said. 

Sergei Mavrodi, head of the 
MMM investment company. 

MMM investment company, 
had the support of Vladimir 
Zhirinovsky, the ultranational- 
ist bad boy of Russian politics. 

Dogged by anti-Semitism 
and jack-booted neofascists, 
the campaign was a total defeat 
for democratic reformers a little 
more than a year before sched- 
uled nationwide elections. Most 
democratic parties did not even 
field a candidate. The closest to 
a free-market advocate, Kon- 
stantin Borovoi, a businessman, 
polled third, according to pre- 
liminary results. 

Those early results show Mr. 
Mavrodi collecting 28 percent 
of all votes. A local bureaucrat 
and longtime Communist Party 
functionary came in second, 
with 15 percent, and Mr. Boro- 
voi polled 14 percent. Nine oth- 
er candidates, including a lead- 
er of the anti-Semitic Russian 
National Unity, split the re- 

Mr. Mavrodi, 39, began the 
campaign in prison and did not 
make a single appearance in his 
election district, even after a 
judge ordered him freed Ocl 
12. But he promised to spend as 
much as $10 million of his own 
money to bring telephones and 
other improvements to his con-

MEXICO CITY — The man 
who assassinated Luis Dooaldo 
Colosio Murrieta, at the time 
the governing party’s presiden- 
tial candidate, was convicted of 
murder Monday and sentenced 
to 42 years in prison, news re- 
ports said. 

By portraying himself as a 
victim of arrogant government 
investigators, Mr. Mavrodi also 
tapped into voters’ resentment 
of corruption, high-handedness 
and incompetence in this na- 
tion’s young democracy, ana- 
lysts said. 

“People feel victimized,” said 
Sarah Mendelson, a program 
officer for the National Demo- 
cratic Institute who followed 
the campaign closely. She said a 
common voters’ view was: “The 
government had no right to do 
that to him, and they have no 
right to do all this to us.” 

Mr. Mavrodi’s MMM com- 
pany collected billions of rubles 

from Russians in what critics 
called a classic pyramid 
scheme. The company used the 
money it collected for television 
advertising, promising huge re- 
turns at no risk, and bought 
back shares at ever-increasing 
prices, until the pyramid col- 
lapsed this summer, leaving the 
shares virtually worthless. 

MMM said the collapse was 
triggered by jealous bureau- 
crats. Many bankrupted share- 
holders believed that only Mr. 
Mavrodi’s election could save 
them, a sentiment he encour- 
aged. He said in interviews that 
if be lost, he would be returned 
to prison and MMM shares 
would never recover their value. 
If he won, he predicted that 
MMM shares would soon soar 
above their pre-collapse level 
In the wake of his victory 
Monday, an MMM spokesmen 
said that the company would 

K begin selling shares in 48 
ow outlets and 49 other 
places across Russia and the 
former Soviet Union.

ties, stiB dying to put together a new coalition two weeks after- 
they were returned to power with a sfim majority, added taxes on ' 
Monday to the list of Issues on which they disagree. 

Finance Minister Theo Waigd, leader of the right-wing Chris-

old center-nght government, said they remained unhappy about a 
new income tax surcharge and would not be rushed into an early

Awake sued university officials 
in July 1991 after being denied 
a $5,800 subsidy to pay for the 
magazine’s publishing costs. 

University officials told the 
group they had decided “Wide 
Awake magazine could not be

the funding denial violated the

-Vew York Timet Service 

honorably discharged veteran 
who strafed the White House 
with an assault rifle was 
charged in federal court on 
Monday with four felony of- 
fenses. A magistrate ordered 
him to undergo a one-day pys- 
chiairic examination. 

At a hearing, prosecutors 
charged Francisco Martin 
Duran with possession of a fire- 
arm as a convicted felon, de- 
struction of U.S. government 
property at the White House, 
assaulting a U.S. officer during 
his arrest and using a firearm

charges, he faces a maximum

into the courtroom dressed in a 
black short-sleeved shirt and 
black jeans.

he said. “There are so many 
facts and statistics. They don’t 
use a language that normal, ev- 
eryday people can understand. 
It’s nothing more than a spider 
web of deceit." 

In recent years, it has, of 
course, become fashionable lo 
attack Washington and politi- 
cians in general. Whether the 
bad mood comes from alien- 
ation, ignorance, indifference 
or “did not — did too” cam- 
paigning is hard to tell. 

But all of this has made 
things harder for precinct cap- 
tains like Michael Koury. an 
old-time Democrat in a gray 
fedora and trench coat who is a 

real-estate agent when he is not 
passing out political literature. 
He has not been thrown off 
porches, but he said be knew

“Everybody is a free-thinker 
nowadays,” he said. “Nobody

The problem now, be said, is 
that people may have it too 
good. “They forget where they 
came from,” Mr. Koury said. 
“Business is good. The people 
are working. It’s a great time to 
live in America. They go! it 
good, and they want it better.” 

Mayor Alex Olejko of Lo- 
rain, a Democrat, said he could 
not figure it out. The Ford plant 
in this city of 71.000 cannot 
churn out minivans and Thun- 
der birds fast enough: the steel 
mill started hiring this year for 
the first time since 1982, and 
unemployment has gone from 

24 percent a decade ago to 6 
percent now. 

“We’re doing as good as we 
did with Truman.” the mayor 
said. “Your son is working. 
Your daughter is working. 
You're working. You're getting 
your pension. What more can 
you ask for?" 

He caught his breath and 
thought of something else. 
“Housing is going up.” he said. 
“What more do you want?” 

The answer from voters in 
both Lorain and River Rouge 
was as vague and unformed as 
their general discontent. People 
mentioned the idea of a third 
party or term limits, but not 
with any particular fervor. The 
only thing clear was their lack 
of interest. 

“Politics is like life insur- 
ance,” said Bob LaForesi. pres- 
ident of Local 1299 of the Unit- 
ed Steel workers union in River 
Rouge. “It’s something 1 goi to

Exhausting the Ocean 

The environmental debate is mostly 
about predictions of calamities that 
have yet to occur. The proof is in the 
future, and in its absence it is often hard 
to know which side to believe, the one 
that is saying the risk is great or the 
other — there is always another -- that 
shows up to say it is narrow. But just as 
every once in a while a dire prediction 
turns out to have been overblown and 
false, so every once in a while one of the 
predicted calamities occurs. It is a chill- 
ing experience, because the environmen- 
talists don’t have to be right every time 
to be right enough. The latest such expe- 
rience has now occurred in the Atlantic 
fishery off Cape Cod- 

Tbe U.S. government has been regu- 
lating America’s fisheries for 18 years. 
The legislation had two parts. The better 
known mostly drove out foreign fisher- 
men who were exploiting the U.S. wa- 
ters. The second then sought to limit the 
catch of U.S. fishermen to so-called op- 
timum yields — low enough levels that 
the various species of commercial fish 
could be counted upon to reproduce 
themselves. The scheme has largely 
failed, in part because it was too timid. 

For fear of being accused of imposing 
federal regulation, anathema even then, 
the authors of the measure came at the 
problem indirectly, setting up regional 
councils through which the industry was 
supposed to regulate itself. But the 
councils, meaning the industry, mainly 
turned a blind eye to the continued de- 
letion of the resource, partly perhaps 
ecause the fish are a resource that no 
one owns and that therefore no one has 
— or bad — an interest in conserving. 

Warnings went unheeded. Now the 
ground fish — haddock, flounder and 
the once abundant cod that gave Cape 
Cod its name — have almost disap- 
peared. The fishery has been exhausted 
as, for slightly different reasons, a num- 
ber of Pacific salmon fisheries have been 
as well. Last year the New England re- 
gional council did finally Impose sharp 
restrictions on die catch, but that was 
only after an environmental group took 
it to court, and it was too late. 

Now the council has been reduced to 
proposing a virtual ban on fishing for 
as many years as it may take for the 
species to bounce back. 

That is precisely the kind of after-the- 
fact emergency action that the act of 
1976 was meant to avoid. What the Clin- 
ton administration and Congress need 
to do — it should have been done long 
ago — is strengthen the act The secre- 
tary of commerce now approves the con- 
servation standards set by the various 
regional councils. He can require that 
they be strengthened, but rarely if ever 
has. He ought to be required to save the 
resource if the councils won’t 

The law should probably also be re- 
written to limit access to the fisheries 
through a system of licensure. Licenses 
that could be bought and sold, and 
whose value would depend on the value 
of the stock to which they gave access, 
would give fishermen a stake in preserv- 
ing as well as exploiting the resource. 

There was a flutter of interest in 
rewriting the fisheries law in the last 
Congress. There ought to be serious 
interest in the next. 


In a season when incumbent legislators 
are being attacked in America as self- 
serving know-nothings, it is a pleasure to 
be able to identify rather quickly a politi- 
cian who not only says he cares about 
good governance but has the record to 
prove it That description fits Senator 
Daniel Patrick Moynihan. He is running 
for a fourth term and he deserves it 

Bernadette Castro is the latest in a 
lengthening line of sacrificial lambs 
served up by the Republicans to fight an 
impossible battle. Six years ago, an indus- 
trious fellow named Robert McMillan 
volunteered for this suicide mission, 
stumped the state in his own car and 
made a lot of good suggestions. He was 
swamped. Six years before that, Florence 
Sullivan, a scrappy conservative, gave it a 
shot with a meager budget that supported 
one press rude, one administrative assis- 
tant and one speech writer — all of whom 
seemed to be the same person. 

Ms. Castro is likewise admirably tena- 
cious, and while we deplore her support 
for the death penalty, she understands 
the national need for health care reform, 
welfare reform and honest campaign fi- 
nancing. Unfortunately for her, so does 
Mr. Moynihan. who also brings to his job 
experience, enthusiasm and as outstand- 
ing record of legislative achievement. 

In time Mr. Moynihan’s radiance may 
dim; in time he may be persuaded to 
bring more discipline to tus sesquiped- 
alian oratory. But he bas been a first-class 
senator. He helped rescue the faltering 
Social Security system, made sure that 
Ronald Reagan’s tax overhaul also re- 
moved 6 million poor Americans from 
the tax rolls, and devised a welfare reform 
program that presaged President Bill 
Clinton’s own plan. 

The rap on Mr. Moynihan is that he is 
so bookish and so wired into the Wash- 
ington scene that be has little under- 
standing of the needs of ordinary New 
Yorkers. That charge is hard to support. 
He has worked for mass transit and a 
cleaner Hudson River. As chairman of 
the powerful Senate Finance Committee, 
he also worked for health care reform 
that would not, in its zeal, destroy New 
York City’s medical schools. If you 
scratch him, he will probably say that the 
thing that makes him happiest is that be 
heisted money out of Congress to build a 
new Pennsylvania Station. 

It is true that Mr. Moynihan reserves 
most of his theatrics for the national 
stage. But for his performance on that 
stage he deserves bravos and a strong 
endorsement for another term. 


Money in the Campaigns 

Imagine If the annual rate of inflation 
in America were 1 1 percent. The country 
would be in fury, ana its politics would be 
turned upside down. Now consider this: 
judging by the amount of money raised in 
Senate elections as of Sept. 30, the cost of 
running for the Senate has gone up by 
nearly 22 percent over the last two years 
— an inflation rate of 1 1 percent a year. 
Even taking into account that there is one 
more Senate race this lime than last, the 
inflation rate is still 10.7 percent. At this 
point two years ago. Senate candidates' 
had raised $174 million. This year the 
figure is $212 million. Compared with 
this, health care costs are positively tame. 

These figures, courtesy of a computer 
analysis by Common Cause, help explain 
why (1) there are so many millionaires in 
the Senate; (2) senators spend so much of 
their time raising money; (3) political 
consultants gel rich; and (4) this system is 
in such need of reform. 

For example, three candidates. Republi- 
can Michael Huffington in California and 
Democrats Herbert Kohl of Wisconsin 
and Richard Fisher of Texas, are million- 
aires whose campaign chests consist most- 
ly of their own money — 93 percent in Mr. 
Huffmgton's case, 85 percent in Mr. 
Kohl's and 69 percent in Mr. Fisher’s, 
Even if these percentages dropped off 
slightly by election day as outside cash 
came in, think of what the opponents of 
these candidates are up against. 

Is it really such a good idea for untested, 
unknown candidates to make it to the 
ballot routinely just because they have a 
lot of spare cash m their accounts to spend 
on pollsters, media advisers and television 

ads? There may be no constitutional way 
to limit the contributions that individuals 
can make to their own campaigns, but 
spending limits and public financing 
could help level the playing field. 

Political action committees tend to be 
less important to senators than to House 
members, since senators have larger 
fund-raising bases. Still PACs account- 
ed for $36 million of the money raised. 
PAC giving was especially important for 
senators from smaller states, accounting 
for 30 percent or more of the money 
raised by six senators seeking re-elec- 
tion. In races in which an incumbent 
faced a challenger, most PAC money 
went to incumbents — a key source of 
electoral unfairness. 

It has been said by critics of campaign 
spending reform that the problem is not 
that too much money is spent on elec- 
tions but that so few resources are devot- 
ed to politics that few voters get engaged. 
Really? Do you think that the stuff much 
of this money pays for — the increasingly 
gruesome advertising on television — at- 
tracts anyone to politics? 

And, as Robin Gerber of the Carpen- 
ters Union pointed out recently, big- 
money politics means that more and 
more campaign (asks are being taken on 
by paid professionals. That is driving 
volunteers away and severing yet more 
links between citizens and the electoral 
process. Congress may have abandoned 
election reform this year, but congres- 
sional dawdling will not make the pro- 
blem go away. On the contrary, it will 
now gel worse.

If Democracy Is Unknown , It Can’t Be an Instant Cure 

W ASHINGTON — “Democracy is a 
difficult kind of government,” Presi- 
dent John Kennedy warned in 1963. “It 
requires the highest qualities of self-disci- 
pline, restraint, willingness to make com- 
mitments and sacrifices in the general in- 
terest, and it also requires knowledge.” 

Those cautionary words have been ig- 
nored by successive American presi- 
dents, secretaries of state and legislators 
who insist that a sturdy dose of Western 
democracy is the best cure Tor the ills of 
an unruly world. None have endorsed 
this nostrum more enthusiastically, and 
uncritically, than President Bill Clinton 
and his chief advisers. 

The democracy placebo is prescribed 
for an epidemic of ethnic, racial, tribal and 
religious conflicts in the world's poorest 
and most vulnerable countries. A presi- 
dent unfamiliar with the political quick- 
sands of volatile societies has been ill- 
served by foreign policy aides with a 
restrictive Euro-centric frame of reference, 
a meager personal knowledge of fractious 
Third World cultures and an. im pulse to 
sermonize when they need to analyze. 

When the Clinton administration first 
rushed to embrace peacekeeping in Soma- 
lia, UN Ambassador Madeleine AlbrighL 
an academic specialist on Central Europe, 
urged America to “stay the course in So- 
malia and lift its people from a failed state 
to an emergent democracy.” Mrs, Al- 
bright, clearly on unfamili ar terrain when 
she detected the mirage of democracy in 
Somalia's tortured history, typified the

unreadiness of Clinton strategists to grasp 
political realities in nott-Westera cultures. 

As public support for the Somali en- 
gagement began to founder, the national 
security adviser, Anthony Lake, advocat- 
ed a rebotded version of the Reagan- 
Bush doctrine to “enlarge the world’s 
free communities of market democra-

ties.” A persistent Washington conceit to 
mold an unwieldy world into an Ameri- 
can image once again surfaced as a sub- 
stitute for serious policy reformulation. 

Soon after his appointment to the 
State Department’s second-highest post. 
Deputy Secretary Clifton Wharton em- 
phasized; “Our marching orders from the 
president are to strengthen democracy.” 
He was soon succeeded by Strobe Talbott, 
an Oxford roommate of the president with 
a European background devoid of expo- 
sure to Third World problems. 

On Haiti, the president’s repeated 
public pledges to “restore democracy” to 
the Western Hemisphere’s poorest and 
most traumatized society rased human 
hopes that cannot be satisfied and in- 

curred political obligations that will not 
be honored. The United States may have 
restored Jeaa-Bertrand Aristide to the 
presidency that he legitimately won, bat, 
as So malia graphically illustrated, it can- 
not inculcate democratic values in yio- 
lence-prone countries beset by ancient 
legacies of tumult and disorder. 

Democracy does not arise pristine and 
full-blown from the ashes of tyranny. It is 
not nurtured by harsh and prolonged 
dictatorship, nor can it be exported by 
pleas or arms to societies that nave never 
known the peaceful transfer of political 
office. Democracy only evolves indige- 
nously over tune through a social com- 
pact between responsible leadership and 
a responsive citizenry. 

Official Washington persistently mis- 
. reads the ouster of oppressive regimes as 
public readiness to adopt a national dem- 
ocratic credo. More often, as in Haiti in 
1986 after the fall of the Duvalier regime, 
the reaction is a spontaneous mass cele- 
bration over the departure of hated sym- 
bols of persecution, and an inchoate ex- 
pression of hope for a more tolerable 
materia] existence. 

Collapsed dictatorships are not imme-

The unique significance of human 
rights, Andrei Sakharov wrote 15 years 
ago from internal exile in Gorky, lie in 
their universal relevance for diverse po- 
litical systems- They are not in them- 
selves a system of governance, but a set 
of moral principles adaptable to varying 
forms of authority at differing stages of 
development. “The defense of human 
rights,” he noted, “is a clear path toward 
the unification of peoples in our turbu- 
lent world, and the relief of suffering.” 

Support for human rights abroad 
needs to move beyond moral censure and 
adversarial scrutiny in Western metro- 
poles. In countries not totally eclipsed by 
tyranny or violence, mutually planned 
assistance and institution-bunding initia- 
tives can fortify local efforts to reek hu- 
mane solutions for age-old problems.

Critics of the Deal With North Korea Impugn a Diplomatic Success 

W ASHINGTON — Criticisms 
of the nuclear agreement 
with North Korea that miscon- 
strue or misrepresent its terms 
have clouded what should be a 
dear verdict of diplomatic success. 

The worst of them pretend that 
the United States could have dic- 
tated a one-sided outcome, con- 
fuse where the real security threat 
lies, or profess a wholly spurious 
concern for the letter (but not the 
purpose) of the nonproliferation 
regime. They deserve to be dis- 
sected and swept off the table. 

The United States should not 
have negotiated at all. The admin- 
istration has been castigated for a 
“Let’s make a deal” approach. 
WdL what were the alternatives 
to negotiating? 

Sanctions and tougher diplo- 
macy are one answer, but that 
does not withstand scrutiny. The 
sanctions that the United Slates 
hoped to push through the Securi- 
ty Council last spring were in- 
tended to bring Pyongyang to the 
negotiating table,' not to force its 

A country that has followed a 
policy of strict economic self-suf- 
ficiency for several decades is not 
a prime candidate for economic 
sanctions. North Korea needs only 
two things from abroad: oil and 
remittances from North Koreans 
living in Japan. Cutting off either 
would have required China to 
publicly turn on its ally and apply 
the stranglehold. Not likely. 

Worse, while the world was 
waiting for sanctions to work, 
there would have been plenty of 
time for North Korea to repro- 
cess the five bombs’ worth of plu- 
tonium m its spent fuel rods and 
to refuel its reactor to start churn- 
ing out more. Thus a possible one 
or two bombs could have been 
turned into a serious arsenal of 
seven or more. 

What little we know about 
North Korean thinking strongly 
suggests that before Pyongyang 
peacefully succumbed to eco- 
nomic coercion it would have 
turned to its million-man army. 
So what about the other alier- 

By Jessica Mathews 

native, a surgical air strike against 
North Korea's reprocessing plant? 
The almost certain result would 
have been all-out war, with high 
U.S. and South Korean casualties. 
Conventional North Korean at- 
tacks on one of South Korea’s re- 
actors, or direct use of its nuclear 
weapons, if they exist, would likely 
have made it a radioactive war. 
The cloud could have reached Ja- 
1 . South Korea would have in- 
riled a flattened North. 

Would it have been worth 
starting a nuclear war to avoid 
nuclear proliferation without ex- 
hausting the alternatives? Obvi- 
ously not. 

A deal was O.K., but not this 
deal. The United States conceded 
too much. Senator John McCain 
called it “appeasement." This 
view requires one to stare hard at 
what the North Koreans get and 
to ignore what they gave up. 

First and foremost they have 
given up reprocessing — their 
and every nation's right under 
the Nuclear Nonproliferation 
Treaty. They have agreed to 
freeze and ultimately dismantle 
the reprocessing plant, present 
and planned reactors and the 
fuel fabrication plant — all of 
their weapons-related facilities. 

They have agreed to give up 
their existing fuel rods. They have 
agreed to satisfy the International 
Atomic Energy Agency about the 
plutonium diverted in the past 
and to put it under safeguards. 
They have agreed to special in- 
spections that they had earlier ab- 
solutely rejected. 

In short, they have agreed to 
give up a nudear-weapons capa- 
bility — something that no coun- 
try but South Africa has done 
before. They may renege, but for 
now they have agreed. If this is 
appeasement. Neville Chamber- 
lain would have been a hero. 

North Korea can’t be trusted. 
True, but the deal does not rely 
on trust. Concrete first steps — 
sealing the reprocessing plant 
and the existing reactor and halt- 

ing construction of the new re- 
search reactors — must be taken 
by the Pyongyang authorities. 
Oil supplies and new reactor 
construction can be shut off at 
the first sign of backsliding. 

The deal is a terrible precedem 
It rewards nuclear blackmail. The 
deal sets two precedents. The 
harmful one could not have been 
avoided in any negotiated settle- 
ment. It is that a covert nuclear 
capability held by an un trusted 
nation is an immense — perhaps 
unmatched — asset 

The task now is to make sure 
that no country ever again gets 
that far. The international com- 
munity has the means to do so — 
it knew what North Korea was up 
to years ago, and it knew Iraq’s 
nuclear intentions as far back as 

1980. But the determination re- 
mains to be demonstrated. 

The other precedent, of going 
beyond NPT obligations and giv- 
ing up the means to legally make 
plutonium, is enormously positive. 

Arms control got short shrift. 
The real issue was simply delayed 
for five years. The administration 
brought this critique on itself by 
masting last spring that North 
Korea's past behavior be cleared 
up first This was a mistake — 
later corrected. 

It would have meant publicly 
nibbing Pyongyang's nose in its 
past wrongdoing. And for what? 
The urgent threat then and now 
lay in the imminent possibility of 
North Korea acquiring dozens of 
nuclear weapons. 

The agreement rightly puts that 
much larger threat first. True, this 
means that North Korea will 

technically be in violation of 
IAEA safeguards for five years, 
but that is a small and symbolic 
cost for a large security gain. 
Most of the moans about the 
damag e tha t this arrangement 
does to the IAEA are crocodile 
tears, coming from people who 
otherwise put the integrity and 
effectiveness of international re- 
gimes pretty near the bottom of 
their priorities. 

The North Korean nuclear cri- 
sis is far from over. Carrying out 
the agreement wili require stead- 
fast and surefooted U.S. diploma- 
cy for many years. For that reason, 
the deal demands a fairer and 
more clearheaded assessment now.

What’s This About Clinton Successes? 

W ASHINGTON — In Haiti. 

the world's strongest indus- 
trial and military power has man- 
aged to land forces in one of the 
world’s smallest, poorest, least 
developed countries. Those U.S. 
forces then succeeded in discover- 
ing and destroying some arms 
caches and disarming and arrest- 
ing some “attaches” who had for- 
merly terrorized the population. 

Additionally, the U.S. govern- 
ment arranged the return of Pres- 
ident Jean-Bertrand Aristide, se- 
cured the cooperation of the UN 
Security Council in repeating the 
economic embargo that it had 
caused to be imposed and made 
commitments of economic aid 
Little progress has been made 
toward “restoring” democracy. 
Haiti lacks virtually any of the 
characteristics believed required 
for democratic government. 

The fact that no one can ex-

"And Work Just a Little Bit Harder 9 

B OSTON — The highest of- 
fice in a democracy. Justice 
Louis Brandeis used to say, is 
the office of citizen. Like James 
Madison and the others who 
founded the United States, he 
believed that Americans have a 
duty to be involved in the issues 
facing their country. 

The man who performed the 
office of citizen better than any 
contemporary 1 know died on 
Ocl 21. Jerome B. Wiesner was 
scientist, president of the Massa- 
chusetts Institute of Techno- 
logy. government official. In or 
out of public positions, he never 
stopped working for the coun- 
try's good He never thought 
that was not his problem. 

Jerry Wiesner s life is espe- 
cially worth noting at a time 
when Americans are so darkly 
pessimistic, down on their gov- 
ernment and even on their 
country- For he exemplified the 
old America: optimistic, gener- 
ous, committed, convinced that 
the country could do and be 
anything if it tried. 

The current American mood 
was chillingly caught in a report 
by Richard L Berke of The New 
York Times (IHT. Oct. II). In 
interviews around the country, 
people told him how terrible 
things were. Several said they 
wanted to emigrate. Emigrate! 

Then there is the rise of nativ- 
ism, a sure sign of public fear and 
anger. The governor of Califor- 
nia fans hatred of foreigners, by 
supporting a measure that would 
make children wear identifica- 
tion cards to kindergarten to 
prove that they are not illegal 
immigrants. Any child who looks 
“different” would be suspect. 
The truth about immigrants 

By Anthony Lewis 

— how their dream bas made 
America great — is in Mr. Wies- 
ner’ s story. His parents came to 
the country at the lum of the 
century from Vienna and East- 
ern Europe. He grew up in De- 
troit and went to the University 
of Michigan, the first in his fam- 
ily to have any higher education. 
From that time he never stopped 
contributing to the country. 

In World War II, at the MIT 
Radiation Laboratory, he played 
an important part in the develop- 
ment of radar. He figured out 
how to communicate by bounc- 
ing beams off the ionosphere, 
making possible FM radio and 
microwave communication. He 
worked at Los Alamos on nucle- 
ar bomb instrumentation. 

After the war he went to 
Washington. He was on Presi- 
dent Dwight Eisenhower’s Sci- 
ence Advisory Committee. On a 
committee dealing with strate- 
gic weapons, he argued strongly 
for the development of ballistic 
missiles. He was Science Advis- 
er to President John Kennedy. 

It was a time when we Ameri- 
cans saw science as the hope of 
the world. But we began to see 
it, too, as a profound menace — 
unless its forces were brought 
under the control of human rea- 
son. That became the work of 
Jerry Wiesner s life. 

He brought home to Presi- 
dent Kennedy the danger of ra- 
dioactive fallout from nuclear 
weapons tests. He played a cru- 
cial pan in answering opposi- 
tion to the atmospheric test 
ban treaty when the Kennedy 
administration negotiated it 

with the Soviet Union in 1963. 

Bui listing his official posi- 
tions or accomplishments does 
not convey the essence of Jerry 
Wiesner. He cared deeply, in- 
tensely about the fate of his 
country and mankind. Yet he 
was never strident, never rigid. 
His was the quiet voice of reason. 

“He had the knowledge of 
evil,” a friend said, “but be did 
not see people in those terms. He 
always thought it was possible to 
change minds.” He shared Presi- 
dent Eisenhower’s concern about 
the military-industrial complex 
and bow it was changing Ameri- 
can society, but he once wrote 
that its leaders were “not evil.” 
They just were not willing to see 
that ever more weapons made 
America less, not more, secure. 

He knew and talked with the 
leaders of many countries. But 
he was the least self-important of 
men: indeed diffident, and with 
an explosive sense of humor. 

“Never for one minute did be 
stop bong a citizen,” a friend 
said. In his final illness he was 
still corresponding with the sec- 
retary of defense. William Peny. 

In 1980, a time when the arms 
race seemed unstoppable, he 
spoke at MIT of how difficult it 
was for the system of democrat- 
ic control to work in our techno- 
logical age. But he was con- 
vinced, he said, that citizens 
could still stop nuclear folly. 

Someone said he was an op- 
timist. He replied: **! don't 
know whether I’m an optimist 
or not, but I’m a realist. 1 real- 
ize this is the only world we’ve 
got. We have to use our intelli- 
gence, our reason — and work 
just a little bit harder.” 

The New York Ttm?s. 

By Jeane Kirkpatrick 

various journalists who have 
termed it a “success.” 

The North Korean “success” 
looks little better. After months 
of negotiations and the death of 
the patriarch. North Korea’s 
government agreed to permit the 
United States and its allies to 
provide it something over $5 bil- 
lion worth of oil, two new up- 
scale nuclear reactors and a vari- 
ety of other high-tech goodies, in 
return for which North Korea 
will permit international inspec- 
tions of its existing reactors in 
about five years — unless, of 
course, it has changed its mind 
in the interim. 

And that’s about it — except 
that the United States will inau- 
gurate full diplomatic relations 
with this totali tarian Communist 
dictatorship, and will maintain 
American forces in South Korea. 

It is extremely difficult to see 
bow American national interest 
or nuclear nonproliferation poli- 
cy has been served by this non- 
achievement, and, as in Haiti, the 
“victory” is expensive. 

The third in the touted “string 
of successes” before Mr. Clinton’s 
Mideast trip was l be deterring of a 
new Iraqi invasion of Kuwait 

In the absence of reliable facts, 
we are, each of us, free to choose 
what seems to us the most plausi- 
ble explanation of why Saddam 
Hussein moved some 60,000 crack 
troops toward the Kuwaiti bor- 
der. My best guess is that, feeling 
frustrated, this man of extremely 
violent inclinations did what 
comes naturally in the effort to 
break out of UN sanctions. He 
threatened to use force. 

He “tested" the new American 
president to see how Mr. Clinton 
would react. What the Iraqi 
learned caused him to turn to 
other tactics. In subsequent days 

the U.S. president has explained 
to journalists that he learned, as a 
boy. how to deal with bullies. 

Let me be fair. The response of 
President Clinton and his team to 
Saddam Hussein’s threatening 
move was timely, dear and firm 
enough to achieve his goal. 1 
count this a success. But it may 
have been made necessary by pre- 
vious impressions of weakness. 

And let me emphasize that this 
success depended not only on the 
personal impression made by the 
president but also on American 
military strength — which is 
steadily declining. I hope Bill 
Clinton understands that contin- 
ued reductions in American mili- 
tary power will undermine his 
credibility as quickly in the world 
as on the playground. 

Then came the Middle East, 
where Bill Clinton managed to 
look as if he, rather than Yitzhak 
Rabin, had played the central role 
in negotiating a formal peace 
with Jordan's King Hussein. 

In Bosnia, where (he president 
has repeatedly promised more de- 
cisive action, the U.S. position 
has folded once again in the face 
of UN and allied opposition. 

In Somalia, the efforts at paci- 
fication, reconciliation and na- 
tion building undertaken by Bill 
Clinton (not George Bush) have 
long since been abandoned. 

No official comment has been 
offered on the persistent rumor 
that there is an intent to enhance 
U.S. relations with the govern- w 
meat of Fidel Castro as part of a 
long-range plan to bring demo- 
cracy to Cuba. 

In sum, I would say the for- 
eign policy of the Clinton ad- 
ministration at midterm is not a 
disaster. But it is also not a suc- 
cess. It does not reflect the high 
standards and moral seriousness 
that we were led to expect. It is, 
at best, disappointing.

1894: French Treason? 

PARIS — [The Herald says in an 
editorial:} Public opinion in Paris 
was much impressed yesterday 
[Oct. 3 1] by a piece of news which 
is undoubtedly of a most grave 
and distressing character. A 
French officer, attached to the 
General Staff of the Ministry of 
War, is said to have betrayed his 
country and to have sold to a 
foreign Power — which is said to 
be Italy — documents relating to 
the mobilisation of the army. 

1919: All Saints 9 Day 

PARIS -— To-day [Nov. 1} being 
All Saints’ Day, which is particu- 
larly devoted throughout France 
to honoring the dead, all the cem- 
eteries and churchyards in the 
country will be objects of pilgrim- 
age. for in France the cultus or the 
memory of the dead claims the 
attention of all. This pious cus- 

tom will this year be observed 
more carefully than usual, for the 
war has spared few families in 
France, and those who cannot 
visit the military cemeteries will 
nor fail lo visit the great cemeter- 
ies, in ail of which there is a me- 
morial to those who have fallen 
for their country. Such Parisian 
cemeteries as P^re-Lachaise, 
Montparnasse and Montmartre 
will, therefore, be visited by even 
larger crowds than usual. 

1944: More f Dour”War 

LONDON — [From our New 
York edition:] Prime Minister 
Churchill warned for the third 
time again st hoping for an early 
end to the European war. Chur- 
chill said Nazi resistance may noli 
be overcome before early sum- 
mer. He stated that the conflict in 
Europe promises to be “dour and 
hard, ’ and that its violence will 
increase on all fronts. 



California Reserves Its Right to Decide ThePope 


WHiam Brennan, asked if 
he any decision he 

rendered during his 34 years on 
the ^Supreme Court replied. 

HcU no, | never thought that I 
*ni> wrong,” 

And be always thought he 
had a right to impose social 
policies he considered right To* 
day's national debate about 
California's Proposition 187, 
which would deny free public 
education and some other non- 
onergemry public services u> il- 
legal immigrants, arises from 
damage done by Justice Bren- 
nan's, and the court's, hubris. 

In 1982 the court narrowly 
t5-4) overturned a Texas statute 
denving free public education 
to illegal immigrants. The ma- 
jority opinion, written bv Jus- 

By George F- Will 

lice Brennan and joined by Jus- 
tices Marshall. Powjell. 
Blackmun and Stevens, extend- 
ed the 14th Amendment's guar- 
antee of "equal protection of 
the laws" to people seeking en- 
titlements from a state in which 
their presence was illegal. 

Justice Brennan signed that 
Texas’s statute was unfair be- 
cause Illegal immigrant minors 
are not responsible for where 
they are, that the law was had 
social policy because it might 
produce an underclass, and that 
therefore the law was unconsti- 
tutional. This is the familiar non 
sequitur by which judges turn 
courts into legislatures: whatev- 
er the judges deem unfair or un- 
wise must be unconstitutional 

Chief Justice Burger, dissent- 

ing and joined by Justices 
White, Rehnquisl and O'Con- 
nor, noted that "the court 
makes no attempt to disguise 
the fact that it is acting to make 
up for Congress* lack of 'effec- 
tive leadership' " regarding im- 
migration. The court, he said, 
was yet again attempting 
“speedy and wholesale formula- 
tion of ‘remedies' for the failures. 
— or simply die laggard pace — 
of the political processes of our 
system of government." 

Justice Brennan did acknowl- 
edge that "courts must be atten- 
tive to congressional policy" 
which “might well affect the 
state’s prerogatives to afford 
differential treatment to a par- 
ticular class of aliens." But he 
was inattentive. By 1982 Con- 
gress had made its thinking 
dear through laws barring ilk- 
gal aliens from Supplemental 
Security Income and Aid to 
Families With Dependent Chil- 
dren. In 1986, Congress did the 
same regarding nonemergency 
Medicaid services. 

In 1990 Congress created 
“Temporary Protected Status" 
for legal or illegal aliens unable 
to return home because of cir- 
cumstances such as civil disor- 
der. Congress, doing something 
like what Proposition 187 would 
do, said people with this status 
are ineligible for most federal 
benefits. This year, in providing 
disaster relief for California. 
Congress excluded illegal aliens 
from almost all benefits. 

The 1 982 decision was part of 
a pattern of judicial usurpations 
of state and local responsibil- 
ities. These usurpations have in- 
volved courts supplanting dem- 
ocratic institutions in 
formulating policies concerning 
pornography, capital punish- 
ment administration of prisons 
and mental health facilities and 
public housing abortion, school 
financing . Christmas displays 
and manv other matters. Yet 
critics of Preposition 187, which 
is designed to force the Supreme 
Court to reconsider its 1982 
usurpation regarding policy to- 

ward illegal immigrants, seem 
scandalized that Californians 
are trying to reclaim a right of 

Critics who denounce Propo- 
sition 187 as “immigrant bash- 
ing" miss a point that evidently 
is not missed by the approxi- 
mately SO percent of California's 
Hispamcs who support it: Prop- 
osition 187 concerns not what 
national immigration policy 
should be, but what state policy 
should be regarding violators of 
whatever the national law is. 

Critics of Proposition 187 my, 
correctly, that government by 
initiative undermines r ep r ese n - 
tative government, under which 
the people do not decide issues, 
they decide who shall decide. 
However, many critics of Propo- 
sition 187 are unofTcndnd by an- 
other subvention of representa- 
tive government, judicial policy-

In Somalia, Rwanda and Yu-

resources to the industrialized 
nations. As people lose hope erf

officials, in Washington and 
Sacramento, had not been cor- 
rupted by the culture of judicial 
activism and been delighted, as 
the political class often is, to 
allow a court to take custody of 
an inconvenient problem. 

When Justice Brennan dis-

ment was 1 14 yearn old. When 
it was ratified, and for many - 
decades thereafter, the nation 
had essentially open borders.

popular government combine 
to justify Californians' right to

S teals say: Perhaps, but

is forced to rethink its 
1982 ruling (hat removed an im-

of state government. 

Only one of the five majority 
justices from 1982, Stevens, re- 
mains. Two of the four dissent- 
ers, Rehnquist and O’Connor, 
remain. If joined by Justice 
Thomas, Justice Scalia and one 
other, 1982’s judicial fiat will be 
overturned and tire issue re- 
stored to popular sovereignty. 

“The justices,” wrote Justice 
Brennan of his colleagues, “are

we know that we are infallible 
because we are final” By passing

How’s Deng? The Zhongnanhaiologists Wonder 

By Steven Mufson 

Washington Poet Serna . 

BEIJING — The Chinese equivalent 
of Kremfinology has been a busy busi- 
ness recently, fueled by a spate ot ru- 
mors that C hina’ s 90-year-old leader, 
Deng Xiaoping, is near death- 

Speculation about Mr. Deng's death 
— a pastime here for many years — 
began its most recent- boomlet when he 
failed to make an appearance on Oct. 1 
for China's National Day, the 45th anni- 
versaiy of the C ommunis t Party victory 
over the Nationalists. 

On Oct. 6, the newspaper Wenzhou 
Ribao quoted Mr. Deng's younger sis- 
ter, Deng Xianqtm, as saying that she 
watched National Day fireworks with 
Mr. Deng at. the g ov ernm ent's Beijing 
guest house. 

. But this report was contradicted five 
days later by South Korea's Yonhap 
news agency, which claimed that Mr. 
Deng was in a coma and had been at 
Army Hospital No. 305 since late Sep- 
tember. It said he was being kept alive 
by life support systems and had been 
near death on Sere. 26 and 28. 

On OcL 13, the Foreign Mimstry’s 
new spokesman, Chen Jian, declared at 
a regular weekly briefing thy. “Deng 
Xiaoping is in good health.” y \ 

Pressed about whether Mr. Deng was 
at home or in a hospital, Mr. Chen gave 
the stock answer used by his predeces- 
sor “Deng Xiaoping is wherever he is.” 

Last week, Mr.. Deng’s daughter and 
private secretary, Deng Rong, during a 
visit to Hong Kong, asserted that her 
father was all right 
“His health a not bail” riw was 
quoted as saying in the Smith China 
Morning Po®ti-“Of course, he is a 90- 
year-olaman now.” • .... 

Mr. Deng has 1 been the architect of 
China's economic reforms over the last 
16 years and has held together compet- 
ing factions within the Co mmunis t Par- 
ty while pursuing rapid economic 
growth and tighl political controL 
Ms' designate d successors — princi- 
pal among them is the president and 
party chief, Jiang Zemin -—will be hard- 
pressed to do the same because they lack 
his stature and ■authority. 

Each time airumor spreads, it sends; 
Chinese stock markets into spasms. On 
several occasions in October, die Shang- 
hai and Shenzhen stock indexes soared 
or plunged by more than 10 percent in a 
single trading session on rumors about 
Mr. Dengs health. The stock market in 
Taiwan had similar gyrations.. 

■ Speculation has also been fed by sev- 

eral front-page editorials in the official 

The editorials have called on tiie pop- 
ulace to rally around the party, the na- 
tion’s leaders and the spirit of Mr. 
Deng’s economic reforms. Reading be? 
tween the lines. Zhongnanhaiologists — 
Zhongnanhai is die Chinese- equivalent 
of the Kremlin — view this as the type of • 
pica that' would be made by Mr. Deng's 
successors. ; • [ 

Tn an unusually bank editorial Peo- 
ple’s Daily on Oct. 22 warned that “it 
would be hard for forces from without 
to topple the party, but the party may 
collapse at its own hands.” V 

Outer signs have been-tdhng. One 
newspaper ran a six-year-old photo- 
graph of Mr. Deng; raising , speculation 
that his current condition was so dfecrep-' . 
it that he could not be seem In his most 
recent public appearance; inFebjuary 
daring the Lunar New Year, he. walked 
unsteadily and appeared disoriented,- 
many tdevison -viewers said: • • ' 

. Many analysts see signs. of a succes- 
sion battle. .. . 

. An OcL 11 commentary in Guangm- - 
mg Daily was seen asa bid by Mr. Jiang 
to consolidate his position as; Mr. 
Deng's most likely successor. The article- 
relied for strengthening the party by 

bademg “the ideology of leadership 
headed by 'Jiang Zemin” and by 
strengthening “the role of the party’s 
leader.” ' 

An editorial the next day in People's 
Daily about “democratic centralism’' 
was described by some analysts as an 
answer by alfies of the N ational People’s 
Coiagress-chainnaivQiao Shi, a poten- 
tial rivaL ■ 

The editorial said; .“Without central- 
ism based on democracy, there would be 
no correct fine; principles, policies, uni- 
fied understanding or action in the par- 
ty; tior could tiie ultimate aim of giving 
full -scope tty democracy be achieved.” 

The editorial added that “centralism 
means to pod- the opinions of all quar- 

. - The . editorial- said the leadership 
should “perfecta series of systems con- 
cerning democratic Ceatralismso that it 
will riot changewith a diange m leaders, 
thdr views or thdrfocus of attention.” 

What afi thitf.iwfentiSj in the view df a 
Hong. Kong atiatystj is that whatever 
Mr. Deng's physical state, politically he 
is already finished. That would explain 
the Hood of retrospectives — such as the 
-recent- idease of Ttis speeches on com- 
pact discs— andrite eulogy-like tone.of 
recent articles. - .

Trench Islam 9 and Its Mosque 

Institution in Lyon Hopes to Bridge the Culture Gup 

By Alan Riding 

New York Tima Serrict 

LYON — In the 15 years since the idea of 
building a Grand Mosque in Lyon was first 
broached, it became a topic of such heated 
debate that even after its first stone was laid, 
in 1992, few people here believed that the 
dazrimg white Islamic "cathedral” would 
ever be completed. 

Both the Roman Catholic archbishop and 
the chief rabbi of Lyon favored giving the 
130,000 Muslims in France's second-largest 
city a proper place of worship. But the ex- 
treme rightist National Front was fiercely 
opposed, while the mosque’s future neighbors 
fought die project in court. 

Indeed, even after the mosque was finally 
opened in September, France's mood was 
hardly welcoming. Weeks earlier, the govern- 
ment had deported two dozen Arab men as 
suspected Islamic extremists, and since then, 
it has renewed its campaign to stop giris from 
wearing Islamic head-coverings to school 

Yet, for all of France’s nervousness about 
having some 4 millio n Muslims living in its 
midst, a nervousness deepened of late by fears 
that an Islamic takeover in nearby Algeria 
would bring an infl ux of immigrants and 
refugees, the Grand Mosque of Lyon is a 
symbol of hope. 

Despite rightist demands that immigrants 
be sent, home, the government knows that 
they are here to stay. But it also believes that 
if France is not to feel permanently threat- 
ened by imported Islamic extremism, a 
French version of Islam must take root And 
it is looking to the new mosque here to help 
that happen. , . 

"We now realize that Islam in France is a 
French reality and not just a foreign issue or 
an extension of foreign problems,” Interior 
Minister Charles Pasqoa said at the mosque's 

inauguration. "So, it is not enough to have an 
Islam in France. There should also be a 
French Islam.” 

By that, he said, he meant an Islam that 
respected France's republican and secular 
principles, that recognized the rights of men 
and women, that did not view France as “a 
space to conquer,” that did not allow “the tree 
of fundamentalism to hide the forest of mod- 
erate, tolerant and discreet Islam that you 

The response from the mosque’s elders was 
the one Mr. Pasqua wanted. 

"This mosque will be permanent proof that 
Islam is a religion that can be practiced in 
strict adherence to French law,” said Rabah 
Khehff, a French citizen who heads the 1s- 
lamic-French Cultural Association of Lyon, 
which runs the mosque. 

The mosque’s grand mufti, Abddbamid 
Quran e, an Algerian-born scholar who has 
spent the last 30 years in France, said he stood 
"midway between two cultures — the marvels 
of the Koran and the culture of Descartes.” 

And he promised that the mosque would be 
open to an currents of Islam. 

The catalyst for the new debate has been 
evidence that sympathizers of Algeria's 
banned Islamic Salvation Front are begin- 
ning to infiltrate France' s Muslim population 
and, even more, to influence some children of 
North African immigrants who, although 
bean in France, feel alienated from French 

But the search for a French Islam also 
implies that France must make room for its 
Muslim population. Already, the government 
is promoting formation of French-born 
imam* to replace those brought from abroad, 
and it wants Muslims to form a national 
or ganizati on with which the French state can

Syrians’ New Reality: Peace Is a Possibility 

By Willi am E. Schmidt 

Ntw York Tuna Soviet 

DAMASCUS — Even in his book-lined 
study, on a quiet Damascus side street, 
Suheil Zakkar says it is not easy lo imagine 
what peace will be like with Israel after 
nearly 30 years of bloodshed and war. 

“If I said I were talking about friendship 
with Israel I would be lying,” said Mr. 
Zakkar, a gentle medieval historian whose 
works on the Crusades and Islamic history 
have won the special patronage of Presi- 
dent Hafez Assad. 

"Let others here go and visit Jerusalem,” 
be said, but at the age of nearly 60 ”1 
cannot change overnight.” 

Like growing numbers of Syrians, Mr. 
Zakkar these days is openly wrestling with 
an idea that even a year ago few would 
have dared to broach in public: the notion 
of living side by side with Israel as a 
nei g hbor rather than an enemy. 

‘The world has changed, and we have 
arrived at a new reality,” he said. “We have 
no choice now but to make peace, on both 
sides. But what kind of peace? — this is 
something else:” 

Damascus is not a capital given to free 
and open public discussion of politics, and 
in interviews here with merchants and 
businessmen, scholars and shopkeepers, 
no one challenged or doubted Mr. Assad's 
unbending demand that Israel must give 
bade all of the Golan Heights before any 
kind of peace is possible. 

But at the same time there is also a 
widely shared sense that some sort of peace 
with Israel is now inevitable: And for 
many people, the very contemplation of 
the idea has had a kind of dizzymg effect, 
fueling both wild hopes and dark insecuri- 

ties among those who for years never heard 
Israel described as anything but the Zion- 
ist enemy. 

"What our president says about peace is 
what we all now believe," said Fahdi Ta- 
bah, the owner of a storefront photo shop 
in the mostly Christian quarter of Batuma. 
"If the Israelis give back what they took 

r When we open the 
borders, there will also be

ideas. Change will come 
last, and we have not

from us, then we can open the borders, and 
the Israelis may come. Why not? It will be 
good for business.” 

But for Bassam Kahwaji a merchant 
and exporter, the idea of peace involves 
risk as well as promise. 

"Peace, when it comes, means many 
opportunities for business and tourism, to 
be certain.” Mr. Kahwaji said. “But when 
we open the borders, there will also be new 
people, and new ideas. Change will come 
fasi and we have not beat used to this.” 

The Syrians and Mr. Assad say they will

The autocratic Assad government has 
embarked on a cautious course of liberal- , 
ization, talcin g steps to open its economy 
to the West and even prepare its people 
psychologically for the idea of peace. 

Diplomats 'say Mr. Assad has tittle '

Union, once his main patron, and the . 
peace accords between Israel and the Pal- - 
estine Liberation Organization and Jor- . 

Diplomats say he is determined to widen, 
the economic and political base of his ■> 
regime, to better insure its stability. 

To that end, said Dr. Andrew Raihmdl ’ 
a Middle East analyst writing in Jane's ~ 
Intelligence Weekly in September, Mr. As^

vate a “new constituency” of private sector

ARMY: Bosnia’s Muslims Gain, but Other Changes Bode Poorly for Them 

Gmtinued from ftige I 

bian lines at 16 points around the country. 

But other changes do not bode weD for 
Muslim fighters longing to return home. 

There is peace between Bosnia’s Croats 
and Muslims, after a one-year war in cen- 
tral Bosnia that was ended by a federation 
agreement in March. But the Bosnian Cro- 
atian militia has provided little help 
a gains t the rebel Serbs. And without Cro- 

brash mountain men. In the past, they 
often boasted about their violent bouts of 
“ethnic cleansing” and proudly pro- 

claimed that by occupying 70 percent of 
Bosnia's territory they had won the war. 

without Cro- 

atian help, few predict that the Bosnian 
Army will be capable of rolling back many 

Army will be capable of rolling back many 
Serbian gains. 

In addition, the territoiy held by the 
C roatiao-Muslim federation is becoming 

increasingly ethnically “pure,” as Croats 
leave areas dominated 6y Muslims and 

vice versa. One UN report says 40,000 
Croats have vacated two mostly Muslim 
cities, Zenica and Tuzla, in the last five 

Thousands of Bosnian Serbs who once 
supported, or at least tolerated, the Saraje- 
vo government, along with many Muslim 
city dwellers, are abandoning Muslim-con- 
trolled turf, throwing the existence of Bos- 
nia's ideal of a multicultural society in 
doubt. Sarajevo's population, for example, 
has dropped from 450,000 when the war 
began to around 200,000, according to the 
internal estimates of some Western aid 
agencies; the total number of Serbs has 
fallen by half, to less than 40,000. 

“No one wants to live in Bosnia any- 
more," one Western aid official said. 
“Anybody who can go is leaving, except 
the politicians.” 

On Serbian-held territory, international 
isolation has blunted the edges of the once 

Bosnia's territory they had won the war. 
Now the bravado is gone. 

“It’s difficult to say just what victory 
means,” said Dragan Petrovic, summing 
up the ambivalence of many Serbs about 
the legacy of the war. The botanist in the 
town of Sokolac, about 50 kilometers east 
of Sarajevo, dreams about peace. “In one 
place, in one country, it is not possible that 
people fight forever,” he said. 

Among the Croats, who before the war 
made up about 17 percent of Bosnia’s 
population, the main idea appears to be to 
profit from the persistent war but stay out 
of the fi ghting . Mate Boban, the former 
chief of the Croatian paramilitary organi- 
zation. now works for the Croatian state 
oil company and, according to UN 
sources, is involved in selling fuel to Bosni- 
an Serbs. 

UN officials say the international isola- 
tion of the Bosnian Serbs has contributed 
to their recent slip-ups on the battlefield. 

The shutting of rump Yugoslavia's bor- 
der with territory held by the Bosnian 
Serbs in August weakened the rebels, who 
relied on fuel and weapons from Serbia 
and Montenegro, the remaining Yugoslav 
republics, to feed their war machin e. 

President Slobodan Milosevic of Serbia, 
blamed for starting the three wars that 
have destroyed much of the former Yugo- 
slavia, ordered the border closed because 
he wanted the Bosnian Serbs to sign an 
international peace plan that would divide 
Bosnia into two sections — one, with 51 

percent of the territory, controlled by 
Croats and Muslims, the other, with the 
remaining 49 percent, controlled by Serbs. 

It was apparently a lack of fuel that 
contributed to the Serbs’ defeat last week, 
when Muslim forces punched out from the 
surrounded Bihac pocket in northwest 
Bosnia and took 200 square kilometers (75 
square miles) of territory, sending 8,000 
Serbian civilians fleeing. Reinforcements 
sent to bolster flagging Serbian lines along 
the Una River did not make it in time 
because diesel was in scarce supply. UN 
officers said.

KNTN, Croatia — The leader 
of rebel Serbs in Croatia said 
Monday thathe had dispatched 
a special police and military 
unit to assist Bosnian Serbs in 
recapturing territory lost in re- 
cent days to resurgent Bosnian 
government forces from the 
northwestern town of Bihac. 

The rebel leader, Milan Mar- 
tic, president of the self-styled 
Serbian Krajina Republic that 
surrounds much of the Bihac 
pocket, said in an interview that 
Serbian forces now massing 
would be sufficient to defeat the 
Muslim-led Bosnian Army, 
adding, “We win see if the Bi- 
hac pocket ends up smaller than 
it was before this offensive 

Bosnia’s 5th Corps has taken 
at least 200 square kilometers 
(75 square mDes) over the last 
six days, pushing eastward from 
Bihac in an offensive that took 
the Bosnian Serbs by surprise 
and could threaten a critical 
Belgrade supply route for the 
Knm-based Krajina Serbs. 

“This was a Serbian ethnic 
area that the Muslims have tak- 


CASABLANCA, Morocco — Arabs and Is- 
raelis at the highest level mingled on Monday at 
a conference on the joint development of the 
Middle East as business leaders cautioned 
against euphoria over the peace dividend. 

“We should guard a gains t excessive opti- 
mism," said the head of the Arab world's senior 
development agency, Abdd-Latif Hamad of the 
Arab Fund for Economic and Social Develop- 
ment. “We should not make promises we are 
unable to deliver.” 

Business leaders also injected a dose of realism 
about obstacles to rapid growth. 

The conference opened Sunday to a fanfare of 
bugles and speeches by politicians declaring the 
birth of a new Middle East that could transform 
the lives of its 300 million people. 

But speakers on Monday listed obstacles: pov- 
erty, the population explosion, debt, perennial 
budget deficits, a legacy of stale control, trade 
barriers, inadequate legal systems, age-old re- 
gional rivalries and unstable politics. 

Israelis, basking in the new acceptance after 47 
years of virtually total boycott by their Arab 
neighbors, remained buoyant. 

The governor of Israel's central bank, Jacob 
Frenkel, said the success of the conference would 
not be measured by the number of projects 
agreed upon “but upon the number of business 
cards that have been exchanged.”

Walter Weiner, the head of Republic National

famil y that has wide interests in Israel, said he 
did not think it was nece&saiy or appropriate to 
have a separate, new institution. 

But William Rhodes of Citibank, sum mi ng up 
the bankers’ discussions, said they supported the 
idea of a development bank but cautioned

Bad planning led to a related loss of 
about 100 square kilometers around the 
town of Kupres to the south, a UN officer 
said The Serbian forces sent to reinforce 
defensive lines outside Bihac came from 
Kupres, leaving that city protected only by 
older soldiers, like the one killed by Mr. 
Muslimovic, and the police. 

Despite the bad news for the Bosnian 
Serbs, the Muslim side is not acting like an 
army bound for gloiy. 

Cold and hungry, Mr. Muslimovic, 21, 
resembled more a scared young man than a 
savage cogin a resurgent fighting force. He 
has seen too much in 31 months of war to 
plan on victory anytime soon: Serbs 
burned his family's home in Jajce; his 
younger brother, Dzemal died last year 
from shrapnel wounds; right teeth have 
fallen out of his mouth, and over the 
course of the war he has washed the blood 
of three Serb fighters from his hands. .

Mr. Martic, whose territory 
covers close to one-third of 
Croatia, did not specify wheth- 
er the unit had already entered 

But he made dear that, in his 
view, the Bosnian gains would 
not be allowed to stand. “There 
will certainly be a counterat- 
tack,” he said, “and what hap-

Israel Gives Prince Philip 
Award to Honor Mother 


An Issue of Ethics 

The Associated Press 

JERUSALEM — Prince Philip of Britain accepted an 
award Monday honoring his mother for saving a Greek 
Jewish family from the Nazi death camps. 

PhOip said his mother. Princess Alice of Greece, never 
spoke about how she rescued Rachel Cohen and her two 
children by hiding than in a third-floor apartment of a royal 

palace in Athens during the Nazi occupation of Greece 
between 1943 and 1944. 

“If I could, I'd leave this place tomor- 
row," he whispered. “Once I get a chance, 
I'm gone”

ta Mesa, California. “Yet the 
schools promote the Halloween 
celebration, which is so obvi- 
ously tied to the religion of 
witchcraft We must ask why.” 

This approach is very clever, 
said Deanna Duby, education 
policy director of People for the 
American Way, a civil liberties 
group that monitors the reli- 
gious right “If you can define 
something as a religion.” she 
said, “then you have a constitu- 
tional argument for getting it 
out of the schools.” 

But she said it was important 
that school districts allow chil- 
dren to “opt out” of Halloween 
celebrations because some par- 
ents are genuinely concerned. 

Halloween originated as the 
ancient Celtic harvest festival of 
Samhain in Ireland and ancient 
Britain, when the spirits of the 
dead were thought to revisit 
their homes and all manner of 
ghosts, goblins, witches and de- 
mons were believed to be roam- 
ing about. In the 9th century, 
the Catholic church grafted the 
Christian onto the pagan when 
it named Nov. 1 All Saints' 
Day, and Oct 31 became All 
Hallow’s Eve. 

The holiday was introduced 
to the United States in the last 
century by Irish immigrants as 

a largely secular occasion for 
trick-or-treating and making 
mischief. But some conservative 
Christian activists are now un- 
earthing its pagan roots in their 
attack on the holiday. 

“The devil is real” said Allan 
Siegel, media relations director 
for Jeremiah Films, a Christian 
film and video company in He- 
met, California. “Its not some- 
thing that is just fun and 

“There are satanic organiza-

Radovan Karadzic, the lead- 
er of the Bosnian Serbs, has also 
vowed to counterattack, travel- 
ing to the region to urge his 
troops on. 

But United Nations military 
observers said that, at present, 
the momentum appeared to lie 
with government forces and, if 
anything, the Knyina Serbs 
might be needed merely to bold 
the Bosnian Serbs' current de- 
fense line. 

As the possibility of a sharp 
Serbian retort against Bihac 
looms, UN militaiy officials 
pondered Monday their eventu- 
al response to a situation that 
might come to resemble that of 
the eastern Muslim enclave of 
Gorazde earlier this year. 

In Gorazde, Muslim forays 
of much lesser scope than the 
current offensive provoked a 
massive reaction from Bosnian 
Serbs that caused a worldwide 

Serbs already predict another 
outcry in the event of a counter- 
attack but argue that the Mus- 
lims clearly used UN protection 
to build strength in Bihac. 

Michael Williams, chief 
spokesman for peacekeepers 
here, said there was nothing in 
UN resolutions on safe areas 
that precluded the government 

between 1943 and 1944.

Some traders talk of specula- 
tors having gotten so used to fat 
profits and to doubling and re- 
doubling their bets that they 
refused to believe thai the mar- 
ket had turned against them 
early this year. “They left their 
bets on the table," said one 
trader. That proved disastrous, 
driving some currency funds 
out of business and forcing oth- 
ers to show losses of 15 to 60 
percent this year. 

The large banks that trade in 
(he market for clients as well as 
for their own account have been 
hit not only by large trading 
losses on their own positions 
but also by a rise in competition 
for clients from medium-sized 
banks climbing into the busi- 

“Those established firms 
with strong bottom line orienta- 
tions will cut back stafr very 
quickly.” Mr. Layard-Leisching 
said. In September. Goldman 
Sachs surprised the market by 
doing just that. Others are ru- 
mored lo be pondering similar 

Only 1.5 percent of the cur- 

rency market’s nearly $ 1 trillion 
yearly trading volume is tied to 
actual flows of goods and ser- 
vices across boundaries, so the 
potential for the sort of shrink- 
age rivaling air leaving a bal- 
loon is always there. 

Analysts, however, are hold- 
ing by their predictions that just 
as 1992 and 1993 were aberra- 
tions on the up side, this year 
will prove an anomoly. 

At stake is the very definition 
of the market. In recenL years, 
currencies had come to be re- 
garded as what professionals 
call a distinct asset class — 
something to be bought and 
sold for its own sake and not 
just for its impact on the prices 
of everything from foreign fac- 
tories to equities. Now the mar- 
ket stands in danger, according 
to some, of losing that status. 

Scotland Fears 

Ship’s Ofl Spill 

LERWICK, Scotland — A 
Russian fish-factory ship ran 
aground in gale-force winds off 
the coast of Scotland early 
Monday, sparking a pollution 
scare as oil poured into the sea 
from the vessel's ruptured fuel 

A helicopter and a lifeboat 
safely evacuated all 155 crew 
members after the ship was tom 
from its moorings off Lerwick, 
capita] of the Shetland Islands, 
in heavy seas. 

The coast guard said the 
10,000-ton Pioneisk was badly 
damaged and could break up oil

A volcanic-rock field just 
south of the camp at Kibumba, 
which contains nearly 200,000 
refugees, has been stripped of 
foliage by bulldozers to make

Federation of the Red Cross. 
Ten huge white tents are 
stacked with 4,000 tons of food

agency, and a clinic staffed by

Tons of food are distributed 
in the camps, on a regular basis. 

But food is not reaching 
those most in need, relief work- 
ers say. That is because the for- 
mer Rwandan officials control 
the distribution “in order to 
consolidate their power and to 
manipulate and dominate the 
camp population,” according to 
the UN refugee agency.

Amid the Trashy Glamour, the Ladies Have Their Day 


By Suzy Menkes 

International Herald Tribune 


BW YORK — Is there a future 
for women as ladies? Or only a 
pretty, graceful past? That is the 
question posed by the down- 
town designers who staged aa ‘'alterna- 
tive** fashion season. 

By the time Geoffrey Beene's -version of 
forward-looking femininity took to the 
stage Monday, the agenda lor New York’s 
spring- summer shows had already been 
set: exploring the limits of female fashion 
in the 1990s. Thai goes from a taxicab- 
yellow vinyl skirt with teetering stilettos to 
ladylike clothes redolent of the past: dress- 
es as worn in the 1940s by wartime sweet- 
hearts or in the 1950s by Sandra Dee. 

AH the dothcs trace the contours of the 
body, and hemlines tend to be oh the knee. 
So although there is still trashy glamour on 
the runways, the ladies seem to be winning. 
Like a Deep South Sunday at the Baptist 
Church, the DKNY show opened with 
polka-dot dresses and cbeny-trimmed hats 
lo the music of a gospel group. Marc Ja- 
cobs made a blunt stab at elegance — as 
the designer attempted to rework the sil- 
houettes of Yves Saint Laurent in the 
1970s. The English-bom Russell Barnett 
bad a Cecil Beaton idyll of flower garlands. 

swings and My Fair Lady dresses. And 
Prada of Italy staged its Miu Miu show on 
Sunday of dresses with the pin-tucked 
prettmess of a bride's bottom drawer. 

’ With transparent hoops twirling, see- 
through balls bouncing and modem dancers 
as models, Geoffrey Beene pursued his reso- 
lute quest for modernity. It was a relief to 
have a forward thrust when so many design- 


ers are redefining fashion by looking back. 
Yet the show did not seem vintage Beene — 
except in its imaginative presentation, its 
intricate cm and its insistence on dothes 
that allow women to move freely. 

Maybe it was the brief hemlines, cutting 
across the thighs — although Beene 
blurred that edge with bands of misty 
fabric. Or perhaps the swingy shapes 
swayed too far from the body. Or that 
Beene’s classic all-in-one pajamas with 
tiny bolero jackets seemed familiar. Al- 
though the designer took Santa Monica 
beach as a theme, it was for summer nights 
that his show shone, with its slender dress- 
es in silky jersey, fragile fabrics and excep- 
tional workmanship that express bis view 
of women in a tender, but modem way. 

Donna Karan made the feminine wom- 
an credible. Her DKNY secondary line 
had moved on from sportswear and ma- 

jored on the dress. The show was played 
out in navy, with white, gray and flashes of 
red for scarlet lips or a shiny jacket. With- 
out becoming a retro parade, there were 
references to the 1940s in ankle socks with 
platform-sole sandals and bracelet-length 
sleeves on jackets. 

The dothes looked contemporary, but 
since the essence of modernity is sampling 
the past, the DKNY show was also about 
the 1970s’ lake on the 1940s : — the skinny 
trench coat over skimpy shorts, crepe suits 
with the hemline skirting the knees at the 
front and dipping at the back, soft satin 
skirts and narrow-belted knits. Graphic 
fabrics like tablecloth checks spiced the 
ladylike looks, and even the wear-ii-and- 
throw-it prom gown made of paper had a 
feminine allure. It was a show about wom- 
anliness that worked for modern women. 

Marc Jacobs was also into the 
1940s/ 1970s story, but instead of refract- 
ing the bright satin suits and tiny- torso 
silhouettes through a prism of the 1990s. 
be seemed to have his head stuck In a book 
of vintage Saint Laurent photographs. Oc- 
casionally something in the mishmash of a 
show came off — like the safari jacket with 
dangling fringe or cute playshorts. The 
dothes might look fine on magazine photo 
spreads. But not even putting weird high- 
cut hot pants under a skinny trench coat or 
a Mickey Mouse hat with a satin over-the- 

knee suit couid distract attention from the 
basic problem: The shapes and propor- 
tions were all wrong. The result was that 
the supermodels looked dowdy or just 
plain awkward, as legs splayed out of tux- 
edo dresses split at die sides and bosoms 
were flattened behind the pockets of a see- 
through chiffon blouse. 

Saint Laurent in his glory years has 
become an icon of current style", but why 
would a designer known for spunky, mod- 
em New York style choose to mirror 
French couture? 

“Because Saint Laurent’s things are al- 
ways chic, no matter what," said Jacobs, 
who was onto something in his attempt to 
present women in a more ladylike way. But 
elegance is more than an attitude — it also 
requires technique to make apparently ef- 
fortless chic. 

P RADA is another reference point 
for 1990s fashion. The Miu Miu 
show of tucked blouses and dress- 
es in soft lingerie fabrics and neat- 
ly belted knits was styled to the hilt with 
scarlet underpinnings, patent leather high- 
heel shoes and soulful expressions. But it 
had the requisite womanly allure in its 
knee-length hemlines, corsetry colors and 
outing of what might once have been 
mom’s trousseau. 

The dress is a significant story from de- 

signers too young to remember even their 
mothers wearing one. But dresses, too, cover 
the spectrum from the flashy, trashy vinyl 
sent out by Kitty Bools — a former sex- 
shop designer — who gave a funky twist to 
the 1 950s; to the brief T-shirt dresses with a 
bikini triangle of fabric patching the front 
from Dom Casual, to the “happy Harlem" 
full-skirted dresses sent out by Cesar Ga- 
lindo. The designers staged a joint show that 
focused on synthetic fabrics that are cod 
with hip designers. 

But other designers think ecologically. 
For J. Morgan Pueit, bora into a family of 
beekeepers, that meant a rustic setting and 
rougb-weave fabrics, often coated with 
beeswax, sent out in family groups to an 
accordion jig and with a quirky charm. 
Lawrence Scott had a toddler, with straw 
twine in her hair, to match mommy's green 
Wellies and cotton dresses printed with the 
kind of vegetables sold in the organic mar- 
ket on weekends in the Hamptons. 

The whimsical show by Bennett, seven 
years assistant to the late Franco Mos- 
chino, picked up on ladylike dothes 
through the century from Carmen Mir- 
anda polka-dot dresses, through 1940s 
crepe suits to 1950s flower-sprigged sum- 
mer dresses. Pretty, womanly looks from 
Michael Leva meant dresses in pastel col- 
ors, perhaps with a petticoat or tulle bus- 
tle, posed in a pale and pretty furniture 

showroom. Most downtown designers es- ~- 
cbew the big runway for financial or aes- •' 
ihctic reasons. The Nigerian-born Lola Fa- *i 
turoti used an Oriental rug department to. 
show off her all-too-literal inspirations ", 
from the graceful saris and gauzy fabrics of 
Indian women. 

The idea that New York shows, once ’ 
just commercial sportswear, could marshal * 
an avant-garde is yet another sign of the 
coming-of-age of American style. The* 
Council of Fashion Designers of America, ^ 
under its president, Stan Herman, is pre- " 
sen ting a thud season in tents in Bryan G- 
Park and in the adjacent New York Public 1 
library. A weeklong accessories display 
includes the soft-sculpture straw hats of 
Patricia Underwood; jewelry from Robert . 
Lee Morris, who has produced cartoon— 
inspired designs in a range for the Warner- j 
Bros, studio store; airy mesh hose, and - 
shiny patent shoes and bags. 

The shows close Friday with a presenta- 
tion at the newly reopened Studio 54 — the * - 
hot disco of the Andy Warhol 1970s era. It ' 
seems an appropriate venue after the once- * 
staid New Yorker launched its fashion H 
special issue (read Salman Rushdie on ’ 
Swinging London) with a wild disco party. '■* 
Among the fashion guests were Giorgio *; 
Armani. Karan and Calvin Klein, who;' 
instantly dubbed the party “Studio 94." J

The Academic Left and Its

/COUNTLESS books have

This excellent book looks at bi-

radicals and fellow travelers. 

Science teaching and the 
practice of science are not at

mathematics at Rutgers Uni- 
versity — nevertheless believe 
that these attacks are cause for 
concern. As scientific and tech- 
nological issues become in- 
creasingly important in the 
public debate, they say, hostil- 
ity to science and receptivity to 
What is essentially superstition 
can affect public policy drasti- 
cally; “We believe that the 
health of a culture is measured 
in part by the vigor with which 
its immune system responds to 
nonsense? they write. 

They are doquent in their de- 
scription of modern science as 
the great Western achievement 
that it is, and as the best known 
wav to fight disease and im- 

prove the lot of human beings 
(raulticulturalists and New Age 
practitioners notwithstanding). 

Although the various groups 
with gripes against science of- 
ten have conflicting goals, the 
authors point out that they tend 
to share some things: apocalytic 
views, career opportunism, a 
general disregard for facts and 
an insistence on staking out the 
moral high ground. (Ironically, 
in some of this they resemble 
the religious right that pushes 
so-called creationism.) 

Ignorance is a common trait, 
with literature professors mak- 
ing noise about patriarchal or 
elitist or Western hegemonic at- 
titudes in the study of relativity 

or chaos theory, without any 
understanding of what these 
things mean in scientific terms. 

Feminists are concerned that 
the teaching of math under- 
mines girls’ seif -esteem or that 
the egg is made to look “pas- 
sive" compared to the spam; in 
one (unfortunately representa- 
tive) instance, Newton’s “Prin- 
czpia Mathematics” has been 
described as a “rape manual." 
These feminists are, the authors 
say, mostly guilty of “meta- 
phor-mongering, " less interest- 
ed in the content of scientific 
writing ihan in the use of incor- 
rect “gender" language. 

Afrocentrists wish to rewrite 
scientific history with Africa as 
its center, and pseudo-science of 
tins kind is routinely tau gh t in 
black studies programs. “Some- 
how, the condescending belief 
has taken hold that black chil- 
dren can be persuaded to take an 
interest in science only if they 
are fed an educational diet of 
Fairy tales," the authors write. 

Ecologists raise alarm over 
the so-called greenhouse effect, 
still unproven. Animal-rights 
advocates attack labs and en- 
dorse “cruelty-free” products 
(in a footnote, the authors say, 
with the wit that characterizes 
the entire book: “We hope that 

these concoctions are tested on 
something. It would do the envi- 
ronmentally sensitive no good 
at all to shampoo with what 
mined out, upon its first tests in 
the marketplace, to be an her- 
bally fragranced depilatory"). 

Some homosexual radicals 
see AIDS as the ultimate result 
of “oppression" by the hetero- 
sexual community; some black 
radicals believe it is a plague 
unleashed by science against 
blacks. The identification of the 
virus that causes AIDS would 
not have taken place so quickly, 
the authors point out. “had 
there been no biotechnology 
and molecular immunology 
based upon genetic engineering 
methods — methods so abhor- 
rent to the radical critics of sci- 
ence, methods that biotechnol- 
ogy opponent Jeremy Rifkin 

and his ‘postmodern science' 
admirers consider to be not 
only superfluous but a kind of 
blasphemy against nature. . ” 

The disturbing thing , this 
book shows, is not that science 
is criticized, as it should be in a 
democratic society. There are 
scandals and fraud aplenty in 
the scientific world. The dis- 
turbing thing is that the criti- 
cism is so stupid.

GM Builds on a Communist Base 

East German Opel Plant Becomes a Model Factory 

By James Bennet 

New York Tima Service 

EISENACH, Germany — On a foun- 
dation laid by Communists, General 
Motors Corp. has built a model of effi- 
ciency for the automobile industry in this 
reviving hamlet of the former East Ger- 

When GM began assembling small cars 

in Eisenach two years ago, skeptics pre- 
dicted that it would struggle to train and 
motivate workers enervated by decades 
under a Communist government 

But as GM has steadily increased vol- 
ume and quality at this factory it has 
found the reverse: Not in spite of, but 
because of, their experience and linger- 
ing ideals, the East Germans embraced 
what GM is straining to teach workers 
worldwide — the Japanese approach, 
with its emphasis on teamwork and con- 
stant improvement. 

As a result the success of Eisenach 
says perhaps as much about the brave 
new world of manufacturing as it does 
about GNTs prospects for competing 
with more efficient automakers. 

The East Germans. GM discovered, 
are delighted to work in small teams , like 
the “brigades” they knew in the Commu- 
nist days. And they are happy to 
strengthen their bonds by socializing af- 
ter hours, at the company's urging, with 
other team members. 

“That was also true when I worked in 
a brigade structure,” said Steffen dadin, 
23, who assembles car interiors on the 
Eisenach line. “We all got along together 
and hung out together away from work.” 

The workers are comfortable with the

workers. Their education, geared toward 
manual skills, better prepared them for 
life in the plants. 

Years of scraping by with few cars, 
washing machines or other durable 
goods — and few replacement parts for 
those they had — have led them to make 
suggestions to save material and labor at

Communist days.

model for the company. Manufacturing

trained in Japanese techniques at GVTs

GM*s European operations, which are 
far more profitable than those in North 
America, are also feverishly trying to

RJR to Offer 

Public 19% of 

Food Business 

The Associated Pros 

bisco Holdings Corp. said 
Monday it planned to sell a 19 
percent stake in its Nabisco 
food business, which makes 
Oreo cookies and Ritz crackers 
among other brand-name 
foods, m an initial public stock 

The offering appears de- 
signed to attract investors to its 
thriving food business who may 
have been unwilling to buy into 
the parent company, which also 
owns the second-largest U.S. 
tobacco company. 

RJR’s stock closed un- 
changed at $6,875 on the New 

York: Stock Exchange, but trad- 
1 million 

ing totaled 8 million shares, 
making it the most actively 
traded issue. 

RJR Nabisco said it expected 
to raise between $1.04 billion 
and 51.17 billion from the stock 
offering in the food company 
and would use $1 billion of the 
proceeds to reduce debt. 

It also said it would begin 
paying a dividend of 30 cents a 
share annually on RJR Nabisco 
stock. The company has not 
paid any dividends since its 
stock became available to the 
public in 1991. RJR was taken 
private in the biggest leveraged 

buyout to date in 1989 and 
made some of its stock available 
to the public two years later. 

Separately, RJR Nabisco 
said it was dropping its plan to 
buy a 20 permit stake in Bor- 
den Inc., the food company that 
h».< agreed to a $2 billion 
buyout by the investment firm 
Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts & 
Co., a major RJR shareholder. 

RJR said it had been unable 
to reach a definitive agreement 
on the proposed stock swap, in 
which it would have paid $500 
millio n of its stock for the Bor- 
den stake. 

The collapse of those talks 
was not expected to affect Kohl- 
berg Kravis’s deal with Borden. 

RJR Nabisco and its larger 
rival Philip Morris Cos. have 
been under pressure in recent 
months from shareholders who 
feel the legal problems faring

are depressing the market valu- 
ation of the food business.

Capital Shortage in Middle East Could Curb Oil Output

NEW YORK — Military maneuvers in the

week that two oil companies had tem- 
taken refineries off line have ruffled the 
cnl market in recent weeks, and prices are at their 
highest levels since midsummer. 

But in the great scheme of energy supplies, 
these are mere blips. Of far greater concern, 
specialists say, is that by the end of the decade 
hfrlinns 0 f dollars wfll be needed to improve oil 
fields, pipelines and ports in the Middle East to 

be able to meet growing demand from oil con- 
suming countries. 

It is far from certain who will provide that 
money, raising the possibility that production 
will not meet that growing demand and prices 
will increase worldwide. 

Since 1985, the demand for oil has gone up by 
about 7 mini on barrels a day, with almost all of it 
being fulfilled by a rise in production by the 
Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. 
Production in the United States, including Alaska, 
has been declining, and fields in the North Sea 
have matured and production growth has slowed. 

Demand for oil is expected to hit 76 million 
barrels a day by 2000, up from an estimated 68 
million now. 

Middle Eastern countries should be able to 
notch up production to meet the higher demand 
for the next few years. But years of reduced 
income brought on by weak oil prices and a need 
to spend more on increasing social needs have 
left the oil producers without the deep pockets 
they need to expand production. 

’There are now increasing demands for social 
justice and more political participation,” said 
James A. Bill, director of international studies at 

W illiam Si 
Vir ginia.

quadrupling of oil prices and long lines at gas

latest Middle East confrontation was shrugged 
off by the energy markets, consuming countries

al Energy Agency, which trades energy trends for

dicted that the price of oil would rise steadily. 

Thinking Ahead /Commentary 

The Race to Still Larger Trade Zones 

By Reginald Dale 

International Herald Tribune ■ ’ 

ed States and the European 
Union suddenly seem to be 
racing to sign up partners in 
new economic megazones that could rad- 
ically alter the pattern of global trade. 

Longstanding warnings that the world 
may break up into three warring blocs 
based in Europe, Asia and America are 
be ginning to look dated. With a grand 
design now on the table for bringing Asia 
and America together, there might be 
only two. (Intriguingly, Russia might 
qualify for membership in' both.) 

Of course, such ambitious plans con- 
tain seeds of danger to the multilateral 
trading system. But, handled right, they 
could lead to more open trade worldwide. 

With its plans to expand into North- 
ern, Central and Eastern Europe well 
undo* way, the European Union could 
expand to 20 or more members in the 
next 10 years. 

Now, the European Commission is pro- 
posing a 40-country Euro- Mediterranean 
zone that also would include the Arab 
countries of Northern Africa and reach 
deep into the Middle East. The plan for 
what is billed as the warid’s biggest free 
trade zone is likely to be endorsed at the 
ELTs summit in De c ember. 

Bui Euro-Med pales in comparison 
with the plan that President Bill Clinton 
hemes to see adopted at the summit meet- 
ing of the 18-country Asia-Pacific Eco- 
nomic Cooperation forum in Indonesia 
this month. 

Thai meeting is likely to set a target 
date for an Asia-Pacific free trade area 
incorporating the world’s two top eco- 
nomic powers (the United States and 
Japan), the world's fastest-growing ma- 
jor economy (China) and the fastest- 
growing region (East Asia) — not to 
mention Australia and New Zealand. 
APEC already represents almost half the 
world’s population, more than 50 per- 
cent of its output and 40 percent of its 

One month later, Mr. Clinton is to meet 
Western Hemis phere leaders at a s ummit 

ed in English), while European integra- 
tion is led by governments and espouses 

But there also is a major common 
feature. Both new megazones would for 
the first time include large numbers of 
developed, newly industrializing and de- 
veloping countries, with huge gaps in 
incomes — a path pioneered by NAFTA 

That means they wDl face enormous 
political obstacles. If it was bard to con- 
vince Americans of the virtues of free 
trade with Mexico, how about a free trade 
Tp ne including China and Indonesia? 

Handled correctly, the 
free-trade 'megazones’ 
now being formed could 
lead to more open 
commerce worldwide. 

In Europe, Germany and other north- 

meetingin Miami at which pan-American 
free trade will be a major theme. 

There is already talk of linking the 
North American Free Trade Area to the 
Asia-Pacific Free Trade Area at some 
point, although views differ sharply on 
how to do it. 

There are big differences between the 
two emerging blocs. The Asia-Pacific 
Free TradeArea would be much less 
tightly knit than the Europe-based eco- 
nomic zone. In the Pacific, the driving 
force is private business (often conduct- 

em states don't share their southern 
iters’ sense of urgency over Euro-1 
And while many Asia-Pacific countries 
are keen to lock in free access to the U.S. 
market, h is not dear they are really ready 
to offer free entry to theirs in return. 

For the moment, the European ven- 
ture looks marginally more realistic. Mr. 
Clinton doesn’t even have the necessary 
fast-track authority to start new trade 

But it won’t do any harm to set off in 
the general direction of regional free 
trade, provided the participating coun- 
tries give the highest priority to the 
health of the global trading system. 

If the two blocs can remain outward- 
looking and ready to negotiate with each 
other, their Formation could generate 
momentum for freer trade overall But if 
that is to happen, the first step must be 
for everyone to ratify the Uruguay 
Round so as to strengthen the founda- 
tions of the multilateral system. 

Commercial Fishermen 9 s Outlook Bleak

setts — At the Si Peter’s Club 
by the harbor, where the fisher- 
men drink and play cards and 
tell tales of the sea, Guiseppe 
Noto was in a rage. 

He pounded the pool table 
with bos huge hands, creased 
and calloused from nearly 30 
years of pulling on ropes and 
chains, shoveling ice onto fresh- 
ly caught fish and hauling nets 
out of the ocean. 

“The bank, they call me yes- 
terday!” shouted Mr. Noto, a 
40-year-old Sicilian immigrant 
whose only school — the only 
one he needed until now — has 
been the sea. “I lose my house, 
my boat, my family. All my life 
— fishing What else can I do? 
This is my Kfe. The fish are my 

Mr. Noto was expressing bis 
worst fears. The fish that he had 
assumed would be forever 
abundant, that he had put all 
his skill and resources into 

chasing, have been disappear-

its generations of Sicilian and 
Portuguese immigrants for 
more than 350 years. 

Mr. Noto returned last week 
from another unprofitable 
nine-day trip to the Georges 
Bank fis hing - grounds only to 
hear yet more bad news: A fed- 
eral panel had recommended 
that the Commerce Depart- 
ment virtually shut down com- 
mercial fishing there; it was in- 

tended as an emergency 
measure to try to save the al- 
ready severely depressed fishing 

The panel, the New England 
Fishery Management Council 
acted after a group of scientists 
reported in August that the 
Georges Bank, once one of the 
world’s richest fishing grounds, 
could be saved only if the cod, 
haddock and ydlowtail floun- 
der had a chance to spawn 
again without interference. 

“The fishermen are an inde- 
pendent, hard-working lot,” 
said a council member, Tom 
HSU, a former fisherman from 
Gloucester. “They did what 
they do best, and that is that 
they fished. The fish were being 
taken out of the ocean faster 
than they could reproduce. 
Maybe m 10 years, maybe in 
five years if God is good to us, if 
we have some great spawning, 
the fishery will recover relative- 
ly quickly.” 

But 10 years, five years, even 
one year is too long for Gui- 
seppe Noto and the other fish- 
ermen at St. Peter's, whose lives 
are intertwined with fishing, as 
were the lives of their fathers 
and grandfathers. 

Mr. Noto was 11 when he 
started fishing with his father in 
Sicily. Five years later, he came 
to Gloucester and got a job on a 
boat. He was too busy fishing to 
learn more than rudimentary 

What mattered was that he 
knew how to work with his 
hands and was willing to spend

timated 14,000 jobs’. 

The fishermen rail at the 
council at the federal govern- 
ment, at the conservationists. 
They say they were told that the 
previous restrictions would 
bring the fish back. Now they 
ask why they should believe the 
new measures will work.

90-foot trawler. 

Today, his boat is one of few- 
er than 150 in a commercial 
fleet that 15 years ago num- 
bered more than 450. 

The council's recommenda- 
tion was only the latest sign of a 
crisis in commercial fishing ,

week, sometimes seven, her hus- 
band, Vincenzo Russo, is at sea, 
trying to make a living. After 
the first regulations were put in 
place last spring, he made the 
decision to switch to herring, a 
far less popular and lucrative 
fish than the cod, flounder and 
haddock that he had been 
catching, but one that is so far 

“We invested all our savings 
in herring gear," Mrs. Russo 
said “My husband knew the 
cycles of the other fish. He’s 
still learning herring. What if 
the herring disappears from De- 
cember to March?” 

AD she wants, she said is to 
stay in the town where she was 
born, to raise her children here, 
and to grow old in a Gloucester 
where there are still fishermen.

Tobacco Sector 
Pulls Down Stocks 

NEW YORK — Weakness in 
the tobacco sector, led nv Philip 
Morris, puiled the slock market 
down Monday. 

Philip Morris dropped 2% to 
61ft, paring the drop in tobacco 
issues after a Florida court on 
Friday permitted individuals 
claiming to have been harmed 
by tobacco to sue as a group. 

The lawsuit seeks damages 
from the companies on behalf

of all U.S. smokers who could 
not quit smoking because of the 
addictive nature of nicotine. 

Analysis said a class action 
poses more liability danger than 
have previous tobacco lawsuits. 

“Philip Morris is the bellweth- 
er in the tobacco group, and ev- 
ery time there's a litigation scare, 
traders lake the stock down," 
said Kurt Feuerman, a manag- 
ing director at Morgan Stanley 
Asset Management 

The Dow Jones industrial av- 
erage closed 22.54 points lower 
at 3,908.12, while losing issues 
outnumbered gaining ones by a 
6-to-5 ratio on the New York 
Stock Exchange. 

Many investors balled out of 
Philip Morris late in the session, 
with computer-guided sell or- 
ders in that stock accounting 

for about 8 points of die Dow's 
drop, analysts said. 

In addition to tobacco issues, 
drug stocks were weak. Merck 
lost ft to 35ft; the company is 
set to install Raymond V. Gfl- 
martin as chairman on Tuesday 
as P. Roy Vagdos retires after 
19 years as chairman. 

Celtrix Pharmaceutical 
plunged 4 3/16, to 2 7/26 after 
the biotechnology company 
said the most advanced drug it 
was developing. BetaKline, had 
failed in a test on humans. Cel- 
trix said it was ending its effort 
to win Food and Drug Admin- 
istration approval for the drug. 

Entergy fell 1 ft to 23ft after 
the electric utility reported 
third-quarter earnings that were 
sbarpiy lower lhan in the year- 
earlier period. 

General Motors fefl ft to 39ft, 
its lowest level in 17 months, on 
speculation the automaker 
would cut as many as 60,000 
vehicles from its fourth-quarter 
production plans, analysts said 

Melhanex fell 1 to 15 after an 
analyst at Wertheim Schroder 
lowered his rating on the chemi- 
cal company’s stock. Methanex 
said it planned to expand oper- 
ations in Chile and New Zea- 
land and buy back as much as 5 
percent of its common stock 
next year. (Bloomberg, AP) 

Dollar Falls as Fears 
Of Inflation Resurface 

Complied by Our Stuff Firm Dispatches 

NEW YORK — The dollar 
fell against other major curren- 
cies Monday as optimism faded 
that the U.S. economy can con- 
tinue to grow rapidly without 
generating faster inflation. 

The Purchasing Management 
Association of Chicago, which 

Foreign Exchange 

reported an increase to 72.5 
percent from 72.1 percent in its 
prices paid index, added to con- 
cern that the Federal Reserve 
Board had not raised rates 
quickly enough to slow the 
economy and control inflation. 

Dealers said that although 
the Figures were not far above 
forecasts, they helped to con- 
firm worries about upward 
pressure on prices. 

The report also pressured 
bond prices, pushing the yield 
on the 30-year Treasury bond 
up to 7.97 percent from 7.96 
percent Friday. The decline in 
the bond market also dragged 
the dollar lower. 

An MMS International ana- 
lyst said the dollar losses would 
reduce speculation that Fri- 
day's rally signaled a reversal in 

The dollar closed at 1.5034 
Deutsche marks, down from 
1.5100 DM on Friday; 96.90 
yen. down from 97.28 yen; 
1.2565 Swiss francs, down from 
1.2595 francs, and 5.1465 
French francs, down from 
5.1665 francs. 

The pound closed at $1.6355, 
up from $1.6240 late Friday. 

Nick Stamenkovic, econo- 
mist at DKB International, said 
the National Association of 
Purchasing Management's sur- 
vey, due Tuesday, would be 
more important as an indicator 
of prices nationwide. 

Stuart Frost, technical ana- 
lyst at NaiWesl Markets said 
trading was thin and investors 
were on the sidelines before the 
October employment report, 
which will be released Friday.

OPEL: East German Car Factary Becomes CATs Model of Efficiency 

Continued from Page II 

built an ungainly East German 
excuse for a luxury car called 
the Wartburg, in a fabulously 
inefficient plant. While 9,500 
workers made about 240 Wart- 
burgs a day, at GlVTs factory 
1,840 workers make as many as 
660 Corsas and Astras ; — both 
small cars — a dayi 
But Opel's approach is even 
more efficient because each 
worker can focus on performing 
a few tasks well. 

GM says Eisenach's workers 
assemble a car in less than 20 
hours, more than 20 percent 
faster than workers at the aver- 
age Opel factory and faster than 
at GNTs most efficient North 
American car plant, the Cava- 
lier plant in Lordstown, Ohio. 

In 1991, GM invested 1 bil- 
lion Deutsche marks (5662 mil- . 
lion) in Eisenach. 

When a company tries to 
abandon mass production, in- 
stalling more flexible equipment 

and switching to just-in-time de- 
livery of parts can be far easier 
than' changing the habits of line 
workers and midlevel managers. 

Mr. Wiedenroth. the final as- 
sembly manager, tried to put 
leaner systems in place when he 
worked in Western Germany at 
Opel's factory in Russelsheim. 
with 26,730 workers. 

One difficulty was that at 
Rfisselsheim, workers on one 
shift spoke as many as 19 lan- 
guages. At Eisenach, 98 percent 

of the workers are East Ger- 
mans, and all speak German. 

An even greater difference, 
he said, was workers’ attitudes 
workers in Western Germany, 
which made an ironic contrast 
with the newborn capitalists of 
the East 

At Eisenach, “profit is not a 
dirty word, like in some old 
factories he said. “They un- 
derstand that profit is necessary 
to pay people.”

»UBS Says Profit 
For ’94 Is Likely 

emptied by Our Sftgy From Dispatches 

ZURICH — Union Bank of 
Switzerland said Monday that 
its profit for 1994 was unlikely 
to match that of 1993, when the 
bank s earnings rose 69 percent 
to a record 227 billion Swiss 
francs ($1.8 billion). 

The bank said its results in 

the third quarter were below the 
year-earlier level, but it did not 
provide figures. 

“Results for the year as a 
whole wflj depend to a large 
extent on what further alloca- 
tions need to be made to provi- 
sions for losses and doubtful 
debts, as well as on market con- 
ditions, in the fourth quarter,” 
the bank said. “Last year's re- 
sult is unlikely to be reached, 

In the third quarter, the vari- 
ous components of income 
“displayed a very diverging 
trend,” the bank said, 
x Fee and commission income 
were “excellent,” surpassing a 
very good result for last year, it 
said. In particular, investment 
advisory and asset management 
services and credit-related com- 
mission income improved on 
their 1993 pe 

But results from the corpo- 
rate finance business woe un- 
satisfactory and reflected a 
“difficult” environment, the 
bank said. Net interest income 
fell below its year-earlier level. 

UBS said market conditions 

adversely affected trading oper- 
ations, which turned in an un- 
satisfactory performance, al- 
though trading income was 
better than in the second quar- 

“A positive development in 
equity trading” contrasted with 
the disappointing trading per- 
formance in bonds and interest- 
rate instruments, the bank said. 

Foreign exchange, banknote 
and precious-metals trading 
were below expectations. 

Total expenses fell “notice- 
ably" from a year earlier, and 
despite further expansion 
abroad, personnel costs de- 
clined considerably. Although 
still at a high level, deprecia- 
tion, value adjustments and 
provisions all fell. 

Assets fell 2 billion francs in 
the quarter, to 233.3 billion 
francs, mainly because of the 
weakness of the dollar. 

Total customer deposits de- 
clined to 130.83 billion francs 
from 133.90 billion francs at the 
end of June, while customer 
loans declined slightly to 145.20 
billion francs from 145.69 bil- 
lion francs. 

Union Bank’s competitor 
Credit Suisse said last week its 
third-quarter results fell short 
of year-earlier levels. Swiss 
Bank Corp., the third major 
Swiss bank, will report earning s 
for the quarter on Wednesday.

e Pinball Wizard 9 Goes to Germany 

Offenbach Sets the Stage for an Economic Revival 

By Brandon Mitchener 

International Herald Tribune 

OFFENBACH, Germany — A former 
industrial city on the river Main near 
Frankfurt, Offenbach is best-known these 
days as the home of the German National 
Weather Service and as host to one of the 
world’s leading leatherware conventions. 

But if Alex Steiman has his way, the 
city will soon also become synonymous 
with a deaf, dumb and blind kid named 
Tommy,' the star of an award-winning 
Broadway rock musical that will start fill- 
ing seats and hotel beds here next spring 

Mr. Steiman, who is a partner in the 
first venture to bring the hit musical 
overseas, and the city of Offenbach, 
which is making the switch from an in- 
dustrial city to a modem center of ser- 
vices, are banking on the success of the 
local production, which is to have its 
premiere in April. 

“The time is ripe for this idea," said 
Mr. Steiman, a businessman who sells 
jewelry in Frankfurt when he is not pro- 
moting “Tommy." 

“Germans are desperate to be enter- 
tained, and we’re selling excitement.” 

For Offenbach, “Tommy" means big 

“It will become a new economic factor 
in the city," said Sigrid Gross, a spokes- 
woman. “Offenbach was always known 
as the leather city. If it now becomes 
known as the musical city, we won’t 

Mr. Steiman, a New Yorker who 
moved to Germany in 1966, has been 
involved in the entertainment business 
with Peter Rieger, his Cologne-based 
partner, since be was 15. In the past three 
years, he said, “Tommy" has become an 

He listens to “Tommy," while driving, 
thinks about “Tommy,” while counting 
carats in his jewelry store and gives tours 

of the theater where “Tommy" will play 
nights and on weekends. 

“It's not that I dislike jewelry, but I 
prefer show biz," he said. 

Several other Broadway musicals, in- 
cluding “Cals,” “Starlight Express” and 
“Phantom of the Opera,” have been 
playing to full bouses m Germany for as 
long as eight years. 

“Germans are dazzled by the intensity 
of the experience of Amcri can-style pro- 
ductions," Mr. Steunan said. 

“Tommy," conceived in 1969 by Pete 
Townshend, a co-founder of the rock 
group The Who, is a two-hour rock bal- 
lad containing songs such as “Pinball 
Wizard” that are already part of pop 

What makes “Tommy" different from 
other Broadway productions, Mr. Std- 
man said during a tour of the Offenbach 
theater where it will be performed, is 
depth. “Tommy’s search for identity is 
the story of a whole generation. You can 
feel the importance of it,” he said. 



Bonn Frankfurt 



Munich • 


Aside from being a story about a deaf, 
dumb and blind child who comes of age in 
the aftermath of World War II, the Offen- 
bach production — inducing war scenes 
and air-raid sirens — will take place in the 
main hall of a former synagogue. 

The budding, Offenbach’s main syna- 
gogue until 1938, was converted into a 
theater in 1940. With the assent erf 1 the 
remaining Jewish community, it contin- 
ued to play a major role m the city’s 
cultural life after the war until the city 
Stopped maintaining ft in 1989. 

Mr. Stetman and Mr. Rieger, who have 
a 75-year lease on the budding for the 
symbolic rent of I Deutsche mark (66 
cents) a year, wiU invest more than 10 
milli on DM in renovating it and expand- 
ing its seating capacity from 800 to 1,000. 

“If we fail, the city will repossess the 
theater in a renovated condition,” said 
Mr. Steiman, who has uncovered mock 
Doric columns that were boarded over in 
the 1940s. “If we succeed, once we’ve 
repaid the debt, the city is out of their 
obligation and starts making money.” 

Offenbach expects “Tommy" to at- 
tract between 400,000 and 450,000 visi- 
tors a year, about half of whom will come 
from outside the region, giving a big 
boost to local hotels and restaurants. 

The city is in one of Europe's richest 
regions, the Rhein-Main area, which in- 
cludes Frankfurt, Mainz and Wiesbaden. 

“A lot of things speak for this region," 
said Mr. St etman, noting the proximity 
of one of Europe’s busiest airports, its 
biggest convention center and one of its 
busiest train stations. 

The timing could hardly be better. 
Two hotels are due to open just blocks 
away from the theater, and a new com- 
muter rad link to downtown Frankfurt is 
planned to crown Offenbach’s revival as 
an investment center for companies in 
the service sector.

Iberia Faces Labor Problems as It Tries to Widen Cutbacks 

Bloomberg Business News 

MADRID — Iberia, trying to stem losses, is 
facing labor unrest as its unions balk at restruc- 
turing plans. 

The Spanish flag carrier is trying to persuade hs 
eight anions to accept payouts of as much as 15 
percent as part of its plan to stem losses and to 
persuade the European Union to allow Spain to 
pomp about $1 btOion in fresh capital into it 
But the airline received more than 120 billion 
pesetas in government aid just two years ago, a 
handout that was approved by the Eli on the 
condition it would be the last 
Consequently, the European Commission

This list compiled toy the AP, constete-ot the 1,000 
most traded securities in terms of dollar value. His 
updated twice e year. 

might be expected to frown on a new request to 
allow a government subsidy to the airline. 

The amine’s two principal unions — the Gen- 
eral Workers Union, or UGT, and Comissiones 
Obreras, or CCOO — have called one-day strikes 
for Thursday and Nov. 1 1. The unions are seek- 
ing nearly 12 billion pesetas ($96 million) in back 
pay for a cost-of-living allowance and are de- 
manding that management negotiate with all 
four unions together. 

Iberia has been ordered by a Spanish labor 
court to pay cost-of-living adjustment, but it 
appears to be trying to include the back pay in 
tours on the reorganization plan. 

The two unions have not dropped their de- 
mand for payment, but they have not made it a 
condition for discussing the reorganization. 

TWo weeks ago, Juan Saez, managing director 
of Iberia, said the airline would go bankrupt if a 
labor agreement was not reached. But the differ- 
ences between the unions and the company and 
between Lhe unions themselves do not seem to 
have diminished. 

Over the weekend, a coalition of smaller 
unions, primarily representing Iberia’s ground 
personnel called for a two-hour work stoppage 
each Friday in November and for four one>-day 
strikes in December. 

Those unions are demanding that Iberia come 
up with the back pay before any reorganization 
plan is discussed. They are not participating in 
the strikes called by the two large unions. 

“The basic difference we have with Comis- 
siones and UGT is that we want Iberia to pay the 
money owed us, and then we wiU enter into 
negotiations to talk about the plan," said Martin 
Torres Machon of the Independent Union of Air 
Transport Workers. 

Iberia’s 1,200 pilots have their own contract 
with the airline and have expressed no interest in 
negotiating alongside the other unions. 

AEG Daimler Calls Report 
On Its ’94 Loss Exaggerated 

AFP -Exlei News 

Daimler-Benz Industrie AG, a 
unit of Daimler-Benz AG, de- 
nied Monday a report in Der 
Spiegel magazine that said it 
would have a loss of 872 million 
Deutsche marks ($582 million) 
for 1994 and said it expected 
instead a loss of 300 million to 
350 mObon DM. 

In 1993, the company posted 

a loss of 1.19 billion DM. __ 
Chairman Ernst Georg St&ckl "" 
said previously the company - 
would be able to halve that loss. 

The spokesman said the 872 - r . 
mini on DM figure “appears to . - 
be an exaggerated operating .; 
loss forecast." 

He added that speculation 
that Mr. Stdckl may leave AEG 
before his contract expires had 
been “plucked out of thin air.” i.

The Chinese government and foreign 
investors alike have scrutinized recent eco-

be able to control potentially destabilizing 
inflation, which hit 27 percent in its largest 
cities in September. 

"This will help the opening up and re- 
form of our finan cial system and make for 
better international exchange,” said Dai 
Xianglong, vice governor of the People's 
Bank of China. 

But, while foreign economists welcomed 
the development, several said more fre- 
quent and consistent releases of data 
would be necessary to enable them to ade- 
quately chart China’s development and its 
current fight against rising prices. 

' “If this is the start of more regular and 
more transparent monetary statistics, I am 
delighted," Enzio von Pfol of S.G. War-

Much of C hina ’s statistical methodolo-

as six months after the quarter has ended.

continued to rise. 

“The f inal aim of our monetary policy is 
to stabilize the currency and promote eco-

difficult for us to directly regulate prices.” 

In more advanced economies, there is a 
dearer link between money supply growth 
and inflationary trends. 

- But in China, now midway between a 
centrally planned economy arid one where 
market forces guide the system, strict mon- 
etaiy policies alone do not hold the key to 
laming inflation, analysis said. 

While several measures of growth in 
economic activity appear to be slowing 
down, including growth in money supply, 
prices continue to soar. 

“Overall growth is up. but it looks like it 
is growing more slowly," said Andrew 
Freris, an economist with Salomon Brothers 
Hong Kong Ltd. “At this point a crude 
version of monetarism is most unlikely to 
bring inflation under control immediately.''

JTong Kong Futures Plan Angers Beijing

Bloomberg Business Nevs 

HONG KONG — China 
criticized the Hong Kong gov- 
ernment as “irresponsible” for 
failing to consult Beijing before 
allowing trading in stock fu- 
tures, the official news agency 
Xinhua reported Monday. 


r.. h-i 

The Chinese agency’s . Hong 
Kong branch described the gov- 
ernment's decision last wedc to 

introduce stock futures trading 
on the Hong Kong Futures Ex- 
change as an “irresponsible act” 
that would have a “major im- 
pact" on the colony’s economy. 

“Any major measures to be 
implemented should take into 
consideration whether it is ben- 
eficial to Hong Kong’s soda! 
stability and economic prosper- 
ity,” a Xinhua spokesman said. 

Hong Kong’s decision to 
launch stock futures has also 
divided the colony’s financial 
community. The Hong Kong

could cause excessive swings in 
stock prices. 

Defending the decision to 
proceed with stock futures, a 
Hong Kong government

TOKYO — As Japanese 
industry struggles to adapt 
to the strengthening yen, To- 
shifumi Hinu, an official at 
Japan's Ministry of Interna- 
tional Trade and Industry, 
has his eyes set on the 21st 

The economics of the 
strong yen are forcing core 
Japanese industries to man- 
ufacture in developing coun- 
tries, and Japan will “need 
to find new, promising, prof- 
itable high-tech industries,” 
Mr. Hirai, director of the 
Aircraft and Ordnance Divi- 
sion at MITL said. “I think 
aircraft, or space, has a mar- 
ket in the next century.” 

But worldwide competi- 
tion in the aircraft industry 
is akin to a “marathon race” 
in which Japan is too weak 
and too far behind to even 
dream of taking the lead, 
Mr. Hirai said. 

Despite such modesty, 
however, Japan's efforts to 
develop an aircraft industry 
are taken seriously by lead- 

forts to diversify and share 
risk with foreign partners. 

So far, he said, the Japa- 
nese have chosen the less 
risky path of partnership. 
About 75 percent of the 

industry’s output is military 
: foi 

work for Japan’s Self-De- 
fense Forces, such as pro- 
duction of F-15 fighter jets 
under U.S. licenses. 

Much of the commercial 
work consists of producing 
parts for Boeing’s 767 and 
777 jetliners ana for Pratt & 
Whitney engines for those 

The goal is to change the 
ratio to about 50-50 military 
and commercial, said Shinya 
Kobayakawa, senior manag- 
ing director of Japan Aircraft 
Development Corp., an um- 
brella organization for five 

major aircraft companies: 

leavy Industries 

iki Heavy Indus- 

mg U.S. companies. 
Instead * 

of seeing Japan as 
a threat, U.S. companies 
perceive the developments 

as part of the globalization 

of high-technology indus- 
tries and are seeking Japa- 
nese partners. 

George David, president 
of United Technologies 
Corp., maker of Pratt & 
Whitney aircraft engines, 
said his company’s coopera- 
tion with Japanese compa- 
nies was contributing to 
their technical abilities in 


But he said he was not 
worried about helping to 
create competitors: “I would 
much rather partner with the 
strongest possible competi- 
tors. rather than have to 
meet all of them head to 
head in the marketplace.” 

KJaus Brauer, chief ana- 
lyst for marketing and com- 
munications at Boeing Co-, 
said aircraft design and 
manufacture was “an indus- 
try with very high risks.” 

Japanese companies es- 
sentially have two choices, 
he said: they can “throw all 
their eggs in one basket” by 
picking a narrow niche to 
focus on as competitors, or 
they ca " continue their ef- 

Mftsubishi H 
LuL, Kawasaki 
tries LuL, Fiqi Heavy Indus- 
tries Ltd, Shmmaywa Indus- 
tries Lid. and Japan Aircraft 
Manufacturing Co. 

A key piece of Japan Air- 
craft Development Corp.’s 
strategy is fonts firms to take 
the leading role in the design 
and manufacture of a new 
email passenger jet the Japa- 
nese have dubbed the YSX. 

The company has for sev- 
eral years explored possibili- 
ties of buildmg such a plane 
with an American or Euro- 
pean partner, either in the 
100-seat or 75-seat class. 

The aircraft if built is 
likely to be a multinational 
effort One possible scenario 
is for Japan Aircraft Devel- 
opment Boeing and Chinese 
state-run aircraft manufac- 
turers to cooperatively build 
a 100-seat airplane. 

The Japanese say such a 
plane could satisfy a global 
market for passenger jets 
smaller than those of the 
Boeing 737 series, which 
hold 108 to 159 passengers. 
Estimates of demand over 
the next two decades for this 
kind of jet range from 1,500 
to 3,000 aircraft 

“We need to prepare our- 
selves for the 21st-century 
economy, where there is a 
globalization of resources, a 
globalization of technology 
development, a globaliza- 
tion <rf the means of produc- 
tion," Mr. David of United 
Technologies said.

movement to and from the 
country, Mr. Sodhani said. 

Companies will be given 
greater freedom to invest in 
overseas joint ventures and 
open branches under the new 
rules, he said. 

The current limit of $2 mil- 
lion on Indian corporate invest- 
ment in a foreign joint venture 
could be raised lo $10 million 
under the new rules, but bigger 
investments would still need 
central bank approval. 

The central banker did not 
say when the new rules would 
take effect.

Knicks Are Still the Beast in the East 

The National Basketball Association, having avoided the labor confronta- 
tions that led to major league baseball and the National Hockey League being 
shut down, begins its 1994-95 season on Friday. Following are assessments of 
the teams in the Eastern Conference and the IVestem Conference. 

By Mike Wise 

Nan York Tima Smite 

When the Indiana Pacers ob- 
tained Marie Jackson from the New 
York Knicks last summer, they ac- 
quired an impresario of the no-look 
pass and someone who seems to 
have mastered the blunt prediction. 
Asked the difference between his 
new club and the old, Jackson had a 
fast answer. “Better team," he said, 
referring to the Pacers. 

.• But in truth, Jackson sounded 
1 more wishful than truthful. 

' New rules conspire against the 
Knicks, and old legs may be carry- 
ing them, but if s doubtful the other 
clubs in the Eastern Conference 
have made enough changes to top- 
ple the defending champions. 

Yes, Orlando has acquired Hor- 
ace Grant and his three world- 
championship rings and will team 
him with that 7-foot multinational 
conglomerate, Shaquiile O'Neal. 
And yes, Reggie Miller has emerged 
as a superstar, and now Jackson is 
on board to help him. 

And it's true that the league has 
eliminated key elements to the 
Knicks’ style of play, the backcourt 
hand check and the front-court 
takedown. Yet experience, guile 
and grit have again made the 
Knicks the favorites, even if Patrick 
Ewing's health is a concern, along 
with Charles Oakley's. 

"The road to the championship is 
definitely through New York,” said 
Tree Rollins, the Orlando assistant 
coach and backup center. “They 
have all the character in the world.” 

Orlando and Indiana, the Knicks’ 
closest pursuers, simply have two of 
the biggest characters, the mess- 
talking Miller and the irreducible 
O’Neal. As two of Lhe league's ris- 

ing figures, thdr games have mir- 
rored the flight of their teams. 

The Pacers will need strong sea- 
sons from Rik Smits and the Da- 
vises, Dale and Anthony, to give 
Miller adequate support Their in- 
side-outside game is efficient but it 
all comes back to Miller and whether 
he, with his sinewy body, can fight 
through all the muscle in his way. 

Soon, there will be “Reggie” 
rules, arid as much as that may com- 
plement Miller’s many talents, win- 
ning a championship on the strength 
of how many 22-footers he makes 
or misses is a tough proposition. 

The Magic intimidates on paper, 
on court and everywhere but the 
playoffs, where the Pacers escorted 
them out quickly a year ago. 

Grant is the acquisition needed 
to solidify an inside game. Anfernee 
Hardaway is the catalyst Orlando 
can’t do without. Still, concentra- 
tion in the dutch has been their 
undoing before, and it may well be 
their undoing again . And after ev- 
erything else, there are the Knicks. 

“I saw the same Knicks defense I 
saw a year ago," said the Magic's 
coach, Brian Hill, after a recent 
preseason game. “They still play 
the same way. They didn't give that 
first hand check, but they still 
banged people in the lane.” 

As for the othe teams in Lhe East, 
the dark horses are abundant, but 
the clear-cut contenders are few. 

Atlanta is still potent, a carryover 
from the impressive job done by 
Lenny W likens a year ago. But 

Danny Manning, a clearance-rack 
free agent, has gone to Phoenix, and 
Craig Ehlo is beginning the season 
b ang ed up. And once the league’s 
premier defensive guard tandem of 
Stacey Augmon and Mookie Blay- 
lock is penetrated, only Kevin Wil- 
lis stands in the way. 

In Chicago, baseball has been 
very bad to the Bulls, who have 
decided to remake themselves in the 
image of Toni Kukoc. 

Kukoc was rewarded with the 
richest contract in franchise history 
between seasons. Scouie Pippen 
stayed in town after trade rumors 
furthered his resentment toward 
management. With BJ. Armstrong, 
Lhe Bulls s i »ll have some semblance 
of those championships years, but 
they are fading slowly. 

As for the Charlotte Hornets, 
they have added the league’s oldest 
player, Robert Parish, who should 
bring humility to a group often too 
eager to anoint itself a playoff 
threat. Larry Johnson and Alonzo 
Mourning are again fighting their 
way back from injuries, and if they 
heal soon, as expected. Coach Allan 
Bristow will have few excuses left. 

Miami achieved its first winning 
mark last season, and Khalid Reeves 
may become the answer at shooting 
guard, where the Heal has struggled 
to find someone to take the scoring 
load off point guard Steve Smith. 

Then there is the wacky world of 
the New Jersey Nets, who have 
made it to the playoffs three 

straight yearn but are considering 
changing their name to upgrade 
thdr identity. Let’s see: 44 percent 
from the field ... the Rims? 

The Nets without Chuck Daly 
running the show are not the same 
Nets, though they return 1 1 players 
from last season. But they will make 
the playoffs, somewhere between 
the fifth and eighth spots, because 
they have the best guard-forward 
combination in the league. 

All-Stars for the first time a year 
ago, Kenny Anderson and Derrick 
Coleman will be given the freedom 
to make music on the break under 
Butch Beard, the first-year coach 
who is still figuring out this team. 

Cleveland is still proud with 
Mark Price running the show, yet the 
Cavs cannot expect Michad Cage to 
be their free-agent answer to the 
much larger problem of finding 
someone to relieve Brad Daugherty. 

Detroit, with the rotund Oliver 
Miller and the spindly, sensational 
rookie Grant HID, may even surprise 
Coach Don Chaney. Shawn Bradley 
has been tutored by Kareem Abdul- 
Jabbar, and the addition of John 
Lucas as Philadelphia’s new coach 
gives the 76ers room to grow, but 
they are still several years away. 

Washington’s ranks of shooters 
run deep, from Rex Chapman to 
Don MacLean to the continually im- 
proving Tom Gugliotta. The defense 
runs awfully shallow, however. 

M.L. Carr has changed the Celt- 
ics’ front office forever. Dominique 
Wilkins, though, will not be able to 
do enough in one year to mask the 
obvious: Boston does not have 
enough talem to make the playoffs. 

And Milwaukee, it had better 
sign Glenn Robinson. Immediately.

Greg Norman only appeared to make a bone-headed play on 18. 

McCumber Zaps 
Zoeller on 19th 

The Associated Pass 

man won the Vardon Trophy, Nude . 
Price won the money title. And Mark 
McCumber won the tournament as 
the PGA Tour season came to, a close ' 
with the $3 million Tour Champion- 

Only the last was in doubt Sunday 
at the Olympic Club, and it was de- 
cided when McCumber sank a 45- to 
50-fooi birdie putt to beat Fuzzy 
Zoeller on the first playoff hole. 

Each had played his second shot to 
the front of the green, on the 18th. 
Zoeller was slightly away and cozied 
his approach putt to tap-in distance. 
McCumber, with the same line, sank 
his. It was worth $540,000. 

McCumber and Zoeller each 
played the final round in 68. Zoeller 
trailed by two with two holes to play, 
but birdied 17 and McCumber three- 
putted 18 from the fringe. 

Price, who clinched player of the 
year honors two months ago, won the 
money title for the second consecu- 
tive season at $1 ,499,927. He finished 
this tournament with a round of 72 
and a par total of 284. 

Norman got his third Yardon Tro- , 
phy, for lowest adjusted scoring aver- 
age. He entered this event with a lead 
of more than a half a stroke a round, 
and beat the only two men who had 
even a remote chance of catching 
Him, Price and Tom Lehman. 

Norman matched par 71 for the 
last round, which he started five shots 
off the pace. But he was unable to 
scare tro leaders, even though he 
wore a Halloween mask walking up 
the 18th fairway. 

Out West 9 Rockets Remain Front and Center 

By Harvey Araton 

New York Times Service 

Western Conference contenders fall 
into two categories: Those with domi- 
nating centers and questionable sip- 
porting casts, and those with superior 
casts except for their lack of a center. 

Put Denver’s shot-bloddng Dikembe 
Mutombo with Seattle, Phoenix and 
Golden State, perhaps even Utah, and 
there really wouldn't be much left to 
discuss. If Houston had cactus and low 
humidity, maybe Danny Manning 
would have taken SI milli on to help 
Hakeem Olajuwon win his second title, 
instead of signing on to help Charles 
Barkley get his first. 

Not only is there little sentiment for 
the Rockets’ chances to repeat, few even 
want to refer to them as defending 
champions. What did Olajuwon & Co.-do 
to deserve being promised a visit to the 
White House moments after they beat the 
New York Knicks in Game 7, only to be 
ignored the rest of the summer? 

The Rockets may yet get to the White 
House. Besides championship experi- 
ence, their situation, Vernon Maxwell 
notwithstanding, may be the most sta- 
ble. Everyone dse has got serious ques- 
tions, physical and otherwise, to answer. 

While they can’t match the firepower 
of the Suns. Sonics or Warriors, the 
Rockets do have, for starters, the 
league’s most valuable player in 
Olajuwon, a 7-foot center with the agil- 
ity of a small forward. They also have 
two young players who are getting bet- 
ter, Rohm Horry, a forward, and the 

Knick-kOler Sam Cassell, a point guard 
who can score and make the big play. 

Coach Rudy Tomjanovich’s team 
should finish ahead of San Antonio and 
Denver to win the Midwest Division. 
The Rockets' elongated frontline — 
Olajuwon, Horry and the aging Otis 
Thorpe — will make Houston a difficult 
playoff opponent for Phoenix. Manning 
or no Manning. 

Even Barkley admits being somewhat 
baffled by Phoernx management’s seem- 
ingly indifferent altitude about the 
team's alarmin g hole in the middle. Yes, 
the Chicago Bulls won three titles with 
Bill Cartwright, but they had Michael 
Jordan and Scouie Pippen. 

Barkley, who has a chronic back prob- 
lem, and Manning, who doesn't want to 
carry anyone on his back, are no Jordan 
and Pippen. And the Dan Majerle of last 
season was a shadow of the Dan Majerle 
from the one before. 

Cartwright, at least, was a career 
starter, a onetime All-Star. Danny 
Schayes and Joe Kleine, Phoenix’s cen- 
ters, wouldn’t start for New Jersey. The 
Suns will score plenty, be a regular- 
season delight and a post-season dud. 

The gravest threat to the Rockets 
could be Seattle, especially if the Super- 
Somes can last long enough in the play- 
offs to play the Rockets. Seattle's quick- 
ness creates positive matchups for them 
against Houston all over the floor. 

Deep as they are, the Sonics must first 
survive themselves. Their front office is 
shaky. If their coach, George Karl is a 
time bomb, then their stars. Shawn 
Kemp and Gary Payton, are hand gre- 

nades. Young Ervin Johnson is untested 
in the middle, and old Sam Perkins is, at 
this point, stopgap. 

The most intriguing team could be 
Golden Slate. Chris Webber missed 
camp, holding out as a restricted free 
agent. Chris M ullin (chip fracture in a 
knee) is already out six to eight weeks. 
Billy Owens and Tim Hardaway are 
hobbling. La trail SpreweQ had a near 
tragedy when one of his dogs attacked 
his young daughter. None of the War- 
riors t hinks Don Nelson will be back as 
coach next year. 

Nelson has always dreamed of having 
a center like the Spurs' David Robinson. 
Bob Hill is the new coach in San Anto- 
nio and sets to deploy the Admiral's 
diverse talents, but the penalty is having 
to deal with Dennis Rodman. 

The most harmonious team could be 
Denver, where Coach Dari Issel is look- 
ing to build on last spring's first-round 
upset of Seattle. The rookie Jalen Rose 
joins the youthful nucleus of Mutombo. 
LaPhonso Ellis, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf. 
Brian Williams and the explosive Rob- 
ert Pack. The Nuggeis are still building, 
though 50 victories is a reasonable goal. 

Utah reached the conference finals 
last season, assuming Seattle’s seeded 
position. Karl Malone is getting tired of 
never getting beyond that point John 
Stockton is just getting tired. 

Portland won 47 games last season, 
and P J. Carles imo, the new coach, said 
he thinks the Trail Blazers can do better 
with center Chris Dudley healthy. On 
the down side, though, are Clyde Drexler, 
Buck Williams, Terry Porter and Jerome 

Kersey. The electric Rod Strickland will 
have all sorts of creative freedom, and 
Tracy Murray could emerge as the 
team's long-distance dialer. 

In Los Angeles, the Lakers are in 
rebuilding mode, and the Clippers, as 
usual, are in trouble. Cedric Ceb alios, 
George Lynch, Nick Van Exd and An- 
thony Peeler give new Laker Coach Del 
Harris a decent foundation of young 
talent to work with. BUI Fitch, 6T Cap- 
tain Video, might prefer most any tape 
to a live presentation of his Clippers, 
who now feature the Big East graduates 
Terry Dehere and Malik Sealy. 

Sacramento is getting an emotional 
lift from the return of Bobby Hurley, 
and hopes to get a full season finally 
from Walt Williams, the lottery pick of 
two years ago. 

Dallas has another supposed blue- 
chipper in Jason Kidd to add to Jamaal 
Mash bum. Dick Motta, Fitch’s peer, is 
back with the Mavs, along with center 
Roy Tarpley, reinstated after a drug 
ban. Minnesota adds Connecticut’s Don- 
yell Marshall to Christian Laettner and 
Isaiah Rider. A bumpy ride is in store for 
the Kings, Mavs ana Timberwolves.

Nebraska Overtakes Penn State as No. 1 

I ; By William N. Wallace 

New York Times Service

football leviathans have risen to 
the top, and both are contem- 
plating undefeated seasons — 
and the possibility of laying

Nebraska, coming off a con- 
vincing 24-7 .victory over Colo- 
rado on Saturday, is now 
ranked No. T by Hie Associat- 
ed Press. Penn State, which 
crushed Ohio. State by 63-14, 
slipped to No. 2. 

-Penn State has a two-game 
advantage in the loss cohmm in 

the Big Ten standings, with four 
conference games remaining — 
against Indiana and niinnis 
away, then at home against 
Northwestern and Michigan 
State. Those four opponents 
have a collective record of 16- 
15-1. Nebraska’s future oppo- 
nents — Kansas, Iowa State 
and Oklahoma — are 9-14-1. 

The final polls, to be taken 
after the major bowl games on 
Jan. 2, will determine the na- 
tional champion, and Nebraska 
may inherit an advantage. 

If all goes well for the Cora- 
huskers, they will play in the 
Orange Bowl as the Big Eight

champions against a high- 
ranked team such as Miami, the 
likely Big East champion, or 
Florida State, which has a solid 
grip on the Atlantic Coast Con- 
ference crown. 

But Penn State must go to the 
Rose Bowl as the Big Ten cham- 
pion and play the Pacific- 10 
Conference winner, which 
probably won't be ranked 
among the nation’s top 10. The 
irony is that the Nittany Lions, 
so eager tojoin the Big Ten with 
the Rose Bowl as a goal, may 
now be deprived of a greater 
prize, a national championship. 

History indicates that if both 
the Comhuskers and the Nit- 
tany Lions should win on Jan. 
2, more first-place votes will go 
to Nebraska because of defeat- 
ing a higher-ranked opponent, 
even if Penn State were to 
trounce its opponent — Ore- 
gon, say — by 50-0. 

In the Pac-10, four teams are 
tied for first with 4- 1 conference 
records: Arizona. Oregon, 
Southern California and Wash- 
ington State. This knot came 
about when Oregon upset Ari- 
zona, 10-9, on Saturday. 

The highest-ranked of those 
four Washington State. No. 16 
in the AP poll. Oregon, is 2ist. 

Fj*cH of the four has three 
conference games left, and a 
key one on Saturday will be 
Washington State at home 
against Southern California. 
Oregon, which last played in the 
Rose Bowl in 1958, has the easi- 
est route to Pasadena with future 
games against Arizona State, 
Stanford and Oregon State, all 
of which have losing records. 

With the coming of Novem- 
ber, there is other unfinished 
business among the elite. 

Miami, for example, has a 
date in the Carrier Dome on 
Saturday against Syracuse. 
Both teams are playing well, the 
Hurricanes superbly on de- 
fense, bolding Virginia Tech to 
a minus 14 yards rushing. The 
Orangemen had a week off to 
contemplate Miami.

games ahead against Notre 
Dame and Florida, brought

| High-Flying Miami 
Wins in Trench es 

By Timothy W. Smith 

,VfH- York Tima Scmce 

FOX BORO, Massachusetts — It was 
supposed to be a shootout between the fly 
boys, the two rocket-armed quarterbacks, 
Miami's Dan Marino and New England's 
Drew Bledsoe. 

But it turned into a day for the foot 
soldiers, primarily the Dolphins' kicker, 
Pete Stoyanovich, and running back Ber- 
nie Parmalee. as they led the way to a 23-3 
viclory Sunday. 

Stoyanovich kicked field goals of 44, 50 
and 48 yards, and Parmalee had his second 
consecutive 100-yaid rushing performance 
as the Dolphins' defense virtually shut 
down the Patriots’ high-flying offense, 
which was averaging 397.4 yards and 25 
points a game. 

The Dolphins <6 -2) maintained their 
one-game lead over the Buffalo Bills in the 
AFC East division, while the Patriots 
dropped to 3-5. 

Both teams were coming off bye weeks, 
but it looked as if the Patriots were still on 
vacation. Bledsoe entered the game with 


2,314 yards passing, the most in the Na- 
tional Football League, and had thrown 14 
touchdown passes. But he looked lost 
against the Dolphins as he completed just 
16 of 33 passes for 125 yards and threw 
three interceptions. 

The Dolphins, meanwhile, who have 
been looking for a consistent rushing at- 
tack ever since Terry Kirby went down 
with a knee injury against the Vikings in 
the fourth game of the season, got a strong 
effort from Parmalee. 

With the 150 yards he had against the 
Raiders and the 123 yards he picked up 
against the Patriots, Parmalee set a Dol- 
phins record for most rushing yards in 
back-to-back games, breaking the mark of 
258 set by Mercury Morris in 1 973. Parma- 
lee played most of the game with a dislo- 
cated right thumb. 

Said Maurice Hurst, the Patriots’ right 
cornerback: “Coming into the game, 1 
thought Parmalee could do a little some- 
thing after looking at him on film. But 
their offensive line was really fired up 
knowing that they have a back who's going 
to get an extra 3 or 4 yards after he hits the 
line of scrimmage." 

In the first half, Marino and his receiv- 
ers seemed to be reading from different 
game plans. Once, in the first quarter, 
Marino threw a deep ball to Mark Ingram, 
who looked as if he was running a come- 
back route. Bledsoe, meanwhile, compiet-

ed just 6 of 13 passes for 49 yards and 
threw two interceptions. 

■ In other games. The Associated Press 

Chargers 35, Seahawks 15: San Diego, 
playing at home, got back on track after its 
first defeat as safety Stanley Richard 
forced two fumbles by Chris Warren that 
set up touchdowns. 

After the Charger quarterback, Stan 
Humphries, dislocated his left elbow — he 
is questionable for next Sunday — Gale 
Gilbert threw two touchdown passes in the 
fourth quarter. Natrone Means rushed 26 
times for 104 yards and one score and 
became the first running back in team 
history to get four straight 100-yard games. 

Bitiocos 26, Browns 14: Denver ended 
its four-game slide at borne as John Elway, 
ending Cleveland's five-game winning 
streak, was 30-for-41 for 349 yards and two 
touchdowns as the Broncos gained 457 

“Ever since I hurt my thumb” — against 
Seattle three weeks ago — *Tve been 
throwing the ball a lot better,” Elway said. 
“Figure that out.” 

Cleveland lost its quarterback. Vinny 
Testaverde, with a neck sprain. 

rjinfinak 20, Steders 17: Greg Davis 
kicked a 51 -yard field goal 1:40 into over- 
time, which was set up when Pittsburgh 
rookie Charles Johnson fumbled the kick- 
off beginning the extra period. David Mer- 
ritt recovered at the Pittsburgh 32. 

Gary Anderson's 23-yard field goal with 
47 seconds left tied the score for the visit- 
ing Steelers. 

Colts 28, Jets 25: Marshall Faulk rushed 
24 times for 1 10 yards and two TDs in 
Indianapolis* while Don Majkowski, start- 
ing his first game in two years, threw for a 
touchdown and ran for another as the 
Colts overcame five turnovers. 

Vikings 36, Buccaneers 13: Cornerback 
Anthony Parker scored his third touch- 
down in the last three games, returning an 
interception 41 yards in Tampa, and the 
Vikings forced five turnovers. Terry Allen 
rushed for 1 13 yards and one score. 

Raiders 17, Oilers 14: Al Del Greco's 52- 
yard fidd goal attempt on the last play of 
the name mt the crossbar in Los Angeles. 

The Oilers had gpne in front, 14-10, on 
Billy Joe Tolliver’s 7-yard pass to Haywood 
Jeffires with 3:19 lefL But Jeff Hostetler 
threw an 1 1-yard touchdown pass to Tim 
Brown with 1 :50 to go for the Raiders. 

Min earlier games, reported in some 
Monday editions: 

BBb 44, Chiefs 10: Bruce Smith forced 
an interception and recovered one of Joe 
Montana’s two fumbles and Jim Kelly 
threw four touchdown passes against visit- 
ing Kansas City. 

Cowboys 23, Bengals 20: Host Cincin- 
nati gave the two-time Super Bowl cham- 
pion Cowboys a scare, building a 14-0 lead 
on 67- and 55-yard scoring passes to Dar- 
nay Scott from Jeff Blake, a third-stringer 
making his first pro start. 

Then Dallas rallied on touchdown 
passes of 27 yards to Alvin Harper and 10 
yards to Michael Irvin from Troy Aikman. 

Eagles 31, R edskins 29: Randall Cun- 
ningham moved Philadelphia 63 yards to 
set up a 30-yard field goal by Eddie Mur- 
ray with 19 seconds left in Washington. 
Cunningham hit 9 of 14 passes for 113 
yards after halftime as the Eagles rallied. 

Lions 28, Giants 25: Visiting Detroit 
became the first NFL team to win three 
overtime games in a season, Barry Sanders 
rushed for 146 yards and became the 
NFL’s first 1,000-yard rusher this season, 
Herman Moore had nine catches for 106 
yards and Jason Hanson kicked a 24-yard 
field with 8:17 left in overtime.

Gil said, "The other day we

"How do we know that 
Abrams was Idling the truth 
when he said that CHlie was not

the same time as he was trading

“If Abrams was lying,, we 
can't hold it against him be-

“Why arc voters so influ-

“President Reagan believes

“But Senator Bob Dole says 
that it doesn’t matter.” 

“Senator John Warner thinks 
that North is a threat to the

“Former Secretary of Trea-

By David Sparuer 
ONDON — Priscilla Namier is 

and! hast - ' 

makeup of 

verse and self-published by the 8c- 
year-old author, is being called a tri- 
umph by the poet Tea Hughes. 

Praising her “peculiar gift tor writ- 
ing dramatic verse” in a way that is 
both vernacular and lofty, Hughes 
wail further. Napier, he wrote, has 
internalized England's history as her 
own history. It is a poem, so he 
Claimed, for those who feel “England’s 
history, in all its details, is somehow 
their own personal, secret history." 

The direct, simpl e, s pontaneous 
evocation of Henzy VTITs character, 
and of men and women around him, 
in Napier's version, is neither modem 
nor archaic. Here is the fust glimpse 
the story gives of Anne Boleyn: 
And in this dark-haired girl 
Something of Wallis Simpson was 

the back at that time from a 

Foreign and navel and as smart as 

Ana heartily disliked by other 
women ; 

The liveliness, the wu, the repar- 

The difference (not in any manner 
quaint b 

She .had the sauce to answer NoJ 
and No! 

The strength to turn the slender 
back and go. 

Later, Anne Boleyn’s slender neck 
was laid across the the executioner’s 
Mock, as befell so many men and 
women whom the king suspected of 
treachery. "The only mercy she re- 
ceived of me,” confides Henry in the 
poem. “Was a skilled executioner 
from Calais/ With a well-sharpened 
sword;/ Who severed that long 
neck l In one clean blow.” 

“I first started writing it at Oxford, 
in the late 70 s, and the poem has 
grown, vary- spasmodically, since 
then,” Napier explains, at home in her 
gingerbread oottage in the English 
countryside. “It's a funny thing. 1 have 
been writing all my life and I don’t 
think I have altered in any way. I have 

) Italy 

and th o u ght bow beastly the Church 
was then to the poo: Italians and 
Spanish. It bulbed the poor so much. 

“Henry had the guts to stand up to 
it all The challenge to hhnwas just as 
powerful as from the Communist 
state in our day, and just as menac- 
ing. It was as if Cuba-had smod up to 
the United States, without having 
Russia in the background.” 

Encouraged by friends, Napier de- 
cided to publish the ballad herself . 
The cost was formidable, £6,000. 
(nearly $10,000) and she is not sure 
how far the pile of books in her 
upstairs cupboard will go down. 
“Any money I make out of my books, 
I plow bads into a literary account,” 
she says. Her next prqjectls to write a ■ 
life of one of her forebears, an admi- 
ral who sailed with Nelson. 

A reviewer m the weddy The Spec- 
tator compared Napier’s portrait of 
Henry Vul to Holbein’s painting 
and the film portrayal by Charles 
Laughton, and doubted whether any- 
one would ever better convey what n 
was that drove that very driven man. 
Certainly she makes a good defense 
for the king, especially xn the evoca- 
tion of his religious feeling, winch 
continued throughout his life. But 
she is far from dazzled by him. 

“I can’t make out a case for him as a 
good man,” she said. “He was rather 
fiendish. He got handed absolute 
power at the age of 18 . Wouldn’t any- 
one be like that? 1 don’t really know 
what made him tick, except this abso- 
lute passion to have a son and his 
detennhiation to teem England out of 
the power of the Habsburg Empire 
and of France. It was a very powerful 
feeling, be must have a son, an un- 
questioned male heir. If his enemies 
could have got across die Channel, 
there would have been havoc.” 

Napier believes it was the Rhesus 
factor that prevented all but one of 
Catherine and Henry’s eight children 
from surviving. “Of course they didn’t

know about blood incompatibility 
then. If you 5 ve in a superstitious age, 
then you might come to think you 
were erased and that you were not 
really married or should not have been 
married. ‘Therefore we are living in 
sin.'” Napier adds frankly; “How 
does one know what he thinks? His 
conduct took the terrible form of kill- 
ing everyone wbo might be a thicat to 
him " Henry himself remarks, with 
subtle insight, in the poem: “Men will 
invent thnr women to their liking.” 

The hero of her ballad is really the 
poet Sir Thomas Wyatt, who was 
Anne Boleyn’s lover before Henry and 
who had the courage “to leC the king 
the news he would not hear,” that 
Anne was not suitable to be his future 
queen. Wyatt was locked up in the 
Tower three times for hispains, on 
trumped up accusations. The details

■ must decline 
PoBrefy but quite firmly. 

Having a single head. 

As to whether hex-verse is also an 
expression of a deeply emotional pri- 
vate life (as Ted Hughes suggests in 
his foreword), Napier is quite dis- 

“One just does not know where 
one’s impulses come from,” she says. 
“I was blissfully happy for five years, 
unto my husband was killed in the 

war, in command of his destroyer. 1 J 
have been a widow since then. M 
haven't had affairs or the desire to 
have love affairs or anything. Rather 
a pity, because I think one needs all 
that. I have three children, all mar- 
ried and happily chugging along. 

“Tm so fed up with all that Politi- 
cal Correctness. IPs gone to the other 
extreme, ludicrous. You know ‘men 
are such beasts.’ I don’t mind a bit 
being called a chauvinist pig." She 
chuckles again. “The book is. really 
an attempt to sec Henry in the light 
of his own day, and not through the 
mesh of feminist passion that would 
have been incomprehensible to him 
and his contemporaries.” :
