PARIS — For more than a generation, 

the legitimacy of governments in the 
Middle East was shaped in large part by 
the geopolitics of the Arab-Israeli con- 

Now, after the epochal business sum- 
mit meeting just concluded in Casablan- 
ca, a different policy imperative has be- 
gun to reassert itself among governments 
in the Middle East and North Africa: 
making money. 

The meeting, to be sure, was bound to 
be more upbeat and symbolic than sub- 
stantive, following as it did the peace 
accords between Israel and the Palestine 

Liberation Organization, and Israel and 

Yet, as John Page, the World Bank's 
chief economist for the Middle East and 
North Africa region, put it “the event 


itself was the substance by virtue of get- 
ting together businessmen /rom more 
than 1,000 companies and officials from 
more than 60 countries, and by virtue of 
the ease with which they were talking to 
each other.” 

Beyond this kind of morale-boosting 
rhetoric, however, lies a politico-eco- 
nomic reality that offers both peril and 

promise to those who want to see stabil- 
ity in this troubled region. 

Put simply, between now and the year 
2000. many billions of dollars in aid' are 
likely to flow to Lhe region from the 
European Union, the United States and 
multilateral institutions. The motives for 
the aid vary, ranging from the European 
desire to stanch immigration and the 
spread of Islamic fundamentalism by 
fostering more prosperity, to the U.S. 
goal of making economic growth so at- 
tractive that it reduces the likelihood of 
military conflict between Israel and its 

But aid alone is not the answer. If the 
economic side of the peace process is to

Case of the Fake Fax Sets Stiff Upper Lips Atremble 

By Fred Barbash 

Washington Poet Service 

LONDON — “The Case of the Cod Fax” is what 
they’re calling it, and Parliament was consumed with it 

Indeed, the Conservative Party members of the House 
of Commons are thrilled with it, because h has succeeded 

in pu tting the British press on trial along with them, if not 

instead of them. 

The plot: a fax sent by The Guardian on the letterhead 
of iheJHooseof Commons in order to obtain information 
without exposing a source. , - , 

f The tnmskttibn: “Cod* is British slang for fake. 

-Tbe characters are a minister in the Conservative 

government of John Major; Mr. Major himself; Betty 
Boothroyd. speaker of the House of Commons and star 
of C-Span; Peter Preston, editor of The Guardian, and 
the owner of Hairods, Mohamed a] Fayed. 

A brief synopsis: In January, The Guardian started an 
investigation into payments and freebies to MPs from 
individuals with an interest in parliamentary business. 
The paper’s investigation, and another by The Times of 
London, opened up a rich vein of what headline writers 
and opposition Labor Party politicians alike are calling 

So far, two ministers in Mr. Major’s government have 
resigned following allegations they did favors in ex- 
change for favors; another two are under investigation 

for same, and a third, Jonathan Ailken. is struggling for 
bis political life. 

The Guardian accused Mr. Aitken, chief secretary of 
the Treasury, of vacationing at the Ritz Hold in Paris, 
courtesy (rf a Saudi Arabian businessman. Said Moham- 
med Ayas. Mr. Aitken has denied the charge, saying be 
paid his bill in full. 

Among the paper's exhibits, which convinced it to run 
its story, was a copy of Mr. Aitken's bfll at the hotel. The 
question arose: now did the paper obtain the bill? 

It turned out that it obtained the bill from the owner of 
the Ritz, Mohamed al Fayed, the same man who owns 
Hairods; the same man who two weeks ago went public

U.S. Steps In to Halt 
Dollar’s Steep Slide 

But Other Countries Stand Aside, 
Fueling Doubt Rebound Can Last 

By Carl Gewirtz 

International Herald Tribune 

With the dollar falling to another post- 
war low against the yen, the United States 
intervened unilaterally in foreign exchange 
markets on Wednesday to support its cur- 

The Federal Reserve bought dollars at 
least three times after trading in Europe 
and Asia had already ended, braking the 
fall of the currency against the yen and the 
Deutsche mark. 

But analysts re main ed skeptical that the 
surprise move to bolster the sagging dollar 
would have a lasting effect on its value. 

The U.S. Treasury secretary, Lloyd 
Bentsen, speaking after the intervention 
began, remarked fiat the dollar's weakness 
was “inconsistent with the fundamentals 
of a strong investment-led recovery in the 
United States." 

The repeated intervention by the Feder- 
al Reserve Bank of New York, which acts 
at the direction of the Treasury, lifted the 
dollar from a low of 96.10 yen. Interven- 
tion against the Deutsche mark lifted the 
dollar from a low of 1.4910 DM. 

The dollar closed in New York at 1.5154 
DM, up from J.4948 on Tuesday, and al 
97.65 yen, up from 96.65. The dollar rose 
to 5.1900 French francs from 5.1 190 and to 
13635 Swiss francs from 13458. The 
pound weakened to $1.6230 from $1.6335. 

The U.S. intervention came less than 
two weeks after remarks by Mr. Bentsen, 
made during a campaign trip in Seattle, 
triggered a sharp slump in the dollar. Al- 
though he sought to clarity his position 
just a few hours later, noting that the 
United States wanted to see a stronger 
dollar, Mr. Bentsen sent currency markets 
into a feeding frenzy on Oct. 20 by saying, 
“We have no plans to intervene.” In recent 

ing the dollar’s decline rather than as an 
attempt to lift the dollar. 

The dollar's fall and the intervention 
were linked, analysts said, to the failure on 
Monday of U.S.-Japanese trade talks 
aimed at opening Japan's market for flat 
glass. An agreement in principle had been 
announced on OcL 1. The inability to 
settle the deal, analysts said, fueled worries 
that the U.S. government would seek to 
pressure Japan by encoura g in g a dollar 
decline that would put upward pressure on 
the yen. 

But Mr. Bentsen sought to allay that 
sentiment on Wednesday, saying “the ad- 
ministration is committed to sound eco- 
nomic policies that expand the economy’s 
capacity and sustain recovery with low 

“Continuation of recent foreign ex- 
change trends would be counterproductive 
for the United States and the world econo- 
my.” he said. “A stronger dollar will re- 
duce inflation pressures, improve Ameri-

we nave no plans to intervene. In recent 
days the dollar has continued to trade 

Analysts said that without coordinated 
participation from other leading central 
banks and without a significant change in 
policy — a coordinated rise in U.S. interest 
rates and a lowering of German and Japa- 
nese rates — the U.S. action could only be 
seen as a stalling operation aimed at slow-

13 Radicals Killed in Raids 
After Algiers Colonel Is Slain 

Compiled b? Our SiaflT From Dispatches 

ALGIERS — Fundamentalist guerrillas 
shot and killed the military commander of 
Algiers on Wednesday, triggering raids in 
which government troops killed 13 armed 

Colonel Cherif Djelloul was slain while 
discussing the surrender of nine guerrillas 
surrounded by security forces in a 1 5-story 
building, the official Algerian news agency 
APS said, quoting security officials. 

He was the highest-ranking army officer 
officially reported killed in a battle with 
militants in nearly three years of civil strife 
in the country. 

Colonel Djelloul was unarmed when he 
was “murdered in cowardly fashion,” the 
statement said. 

After the colonel was killed, troops 
stormed the Lafayette Tower building and 
killed nine guerrillas, including a Muslim 
rebel woman, APS said. Earlier reports 
had suggested women may have been tak- 
en hostage by the rebels but later reports 
said they were guerrillas. 

The raid took place after a 36-hour 


Abortion Doctor’s 
Killer Convicted 

PENSACOLA, Florida (APJ — A for- 
mer minister was convicted of murder 
Wednesday in the shotgun slayings of an 
abortion doctor and volunteer escort. 

The jury deliberatedjust 20 minutes 
before finding Paul H2I, 40, guilty. He 
could receive Ufe in prison or death in the 
dearie chair. 

After being barred by the judge from 
arguing that the slayings were justifiable 
homicide to save the lives of fetuses, Mr. 
Hill, acting as his own lawyer, put up no 
defense. He asked no questions and 
made no statements. 

The jury will return for the penalty 
phase on Thursday. 

Mr. Hill was also convicted of at- 
tempted murder for wounding a second 
volunteer escorting the doctor during the 
July 29 attack.

siege, officials told APS. Residents were 
evacuated from the block, they added. 

A short distance away, security forces 
raided another house, killing four armed 
militants. APS said. 

A woman was among the four guerrillas 
who were killed in the second house after 
they rejected a demand by security forces 
for their surrender. APS said. 

The drama began Tuesday with a shoo- 
tout between fundamentalists and security 
forces in the bustling Telemly Boulevard 
district, prompting the police to seal off 
the area. Media reports said four armed 
fundamentalists, including their leader, 
who was known as Flicha, were killed in 
the shootout on Tuesday. Officials gave no 
details of the raid. 

After the shootout, a group of militants 
took refuge in the nearby Lafayette build- 
ing. Elite troops and police rushed the 
building on Wednesday. The guerrillas bad 
threatened to blow up the building and the 
two girls they claimed to be holding hos- 

The government’s operation, involving 
large numbers of hooded special troops 
and police, began Tuesday, the day a bomb 
attack blamed on Muslim radicals killed 
four children attending a ceremony in a 
cemetery in the west Algerian coastal town 
of Mostaganem. Initial reports had said 
five children had died. 

The independent daily El Watan said 
the attack at the cemetery was apparently 
intended to kill the prefect of the district 
around Mostaganem, 280 kilometers (170 
miles) west of Algiers, and the military and 
police chiefs and soldiers who were at the 
ceremony to mark the 40th anniversary of 
the start of the war for independence from 

The bombing was denounced by an ex- 
iled spokesman of the Islamic Salvation 
Front, which was outlawed in March 1992, 
two months after the military canceled the 
second round of general elections that the 
fundamentalist movement had been 
poised to win. 

In a statement released in Bonn, the 
Islamic Salvation Front said that it “at- 
tacks and energetically condemns this dis- 
graceful killing and the cowards who car- 
ried it out” (AFP, Reuters) 

Reuters reported earlier from Paris: 

Interior Minister Charles Pasqua of 
France welcomed Wednesday the an- 
nouncement by President Li amine ZerouaJ 
of Algeria of presidential elections next 
year in Algeria. 

His remarks contrasted with the Foreign 
Ministry’s refusal to comment on the elec- 
tion phot, highlighting again differences in 
Paris over policy toward Algeria. 

“I think everything that leads to the 
ballot box is positive,” Mr. Pasqua said in 
a France 3 television interview. “I never 
believed there could be a real agreement 
between the current leaders and the Islam- 
ic Salvation Front,” he said. “Is this the 
way? I hope so.”

UN General Fuels Allies’ Discord on Bosnian Air Strikes 


By Joseph Fitchett 

International Herald Tribune 

PARIS — Urging more aggressive use of 

NATO waiplaneTttfback up Security Council 
resolutions m Bosnia, US. offia 

last week to mete out harsher punishment 
against artillery near Sarajevo. 

U.S. officials were infuriated by the tenor of 

l Rat 

_ . iaals said Wednes- 
day air power could make a critical differ- 
ence in spurring Bosnia's Serbs to seek peace 
before the fighting escalates a g ain . 

But the officials voiced frustration about the 
reaction to die Clinton administration's position 
in major European capitals, which still support 
the United Nations m objecting to mflitaiy 

This new chapter of trans-Atlantic disagree- 
ment about Bosnia burst into the open Wednes- 
day with the disclosure of a letter in which Sir 
Michael Rose, the British lieutenant general in 
command of the UN peacekeeping forces, voiced 
his reluctance to call in Norm Atlantic Treaty 
Organization air strikes against Bosnian Serbs. 

By its conciliatory tone, the letter — sent Sept 
30 but just published by The Times of London — 
contradicts the thrust of a UN-NATO accord 

this private message to General Ratko Mladic, 
commander of the Bosnian Serbian forces, sent 
as Washington was urging allied governments to 
dose ranks behind a tougher policy aimed at 
isolating the Bosnian Serbs. 

“It talks to than the same way the UN is 
acting toward them, all carrot and no stick,” a 
NATO official said. 

Defending his views in a separate letter to The 
Tunes published in the same issue, General Rose 
argued that the UN mission was “principally one 
of peacekeeping, not peace enforcement,” con- 
tending that his team’s work had succeeded be- 
cause “central Bosnia is fast returning to 

At NATO, allied governments have embraced 
the Clinton administration's view that the time is 
ripe for sharper use of air power in order to 
persuade the Bosnian Serbs to reach a settle- 
ment, roughly along the lines proposed by the 
“contact group" of five mediating nations: the 

United States, Britain, France, Germany and 

As a U.S. official put it, “the contact group is 
our top priority and enhanmd air power is the 
only conceivable way to get a solution in real 
time” — a phrase referring to worries that time is 
running out for keeping sanctions on Belgrade. 

But the same allied governments also have 
largely acquiesced in the contrasting UN view 
along the lines that, in a civil war too bloody to 
control, the best the rest of the world can hope to 
do is provide humanitarian relief and hope that it 
at least lessens the conflict's impact in the West 

In one respect, the Clinton administration and 
European governments share the same hopeful 
assessment: that the war may be slowly grin ding 
to a halt, mainly because Belgrade has started 
pressing the Serbs in Bosnia to settle. 

How to capitalize on this moment, however, 
has revived a split between what officials call, 
euphemistically, “the two cultures” inherent in 
such different organizations as NATO and the 
United Nations. 

In contrast to NATO, UN c omman ders on the 

ground develop the view that the conflict has no 
good side and no “enemy” to be beaten. 

For example, UN headquarters in Bosnia does 
no intelligence gathering, a commander ex- 
plained recently, because advance warning is 
irrelevant for peacekeepers with no intention of 
taking countermeasures. 

This gap in mentalities between NATO and 
the UN system, several officials said, helps ex- 
plain why it has proved so difficult to achieve 
cooperation on the ground. 

“In the Security Council, governments are 
deliberately vague; at NATO, the same govern- 
ments have to be specific,” according to a West- 
ern official. 

The result, he said, is “a dual-key system 
which in effect means a double veto, so action 
rardy gets taken in Bosnia.” 

Most vetoes have come from the UN hierar- 
chy. But the most recent calls for NATO air 
strikes — to halt tire current Muslim offensive — 
were rejected by Secretary of State Warren ML 
Christopher on the grounds that the Bosnian 
Serbs have been the overall aggressors in the war. 

Yeltsin Weighs a Cabinet Reshuffle 

MOSCOW (Reuters) — The head of Russia’s lower house of 
Parliament said Wednesday he had discussed with President Boris 
N. Yeltsin a need for urgent government changes, Interfax news 
agency reported. 

The State Duma chairman, Ivan Rybkin, said a cabinet reshuf- 
fle would take one or two weeks, but gave no further details. It was 
not clear if Mr. Yeltsin, who has the power to dismiss ministers, 
had agreed to specific cabinet changes. 

Mr. Rybkin told Interfax that talks with Mr. Yeltsin on 
Wednesday had brought up an “extremely urgent need to renew 
the maVwtp of the government.” Last week, the Duma turned 
back a np- nngifidgpce motion in the government of Prime Minister 
Viktor S. Chernomyrdin. .

cutors are considering charging 
a Colorado man with attempted 
assassination after finding new 
evidence indicating that he in- 
tended to kill President Bill 
CUnton when he fired on the 
White House, an official said 

The official, who is familiar 
with the investigation, said tes- 
timony from a former co-work- 
er and papers found in the truck 
of the suspect, Francisco Mar- 
tin Duran, had prosecutors 
“looking at broadening the 
charges” against him even 
though Mr. Clinton was no- 
where in sight during the shoot- 
ing Saturday. 

Mr. Duran, 26, was bound 
over Wednesday for trial on 
four charges that were filed 
against him Monday. A magis- 
trate ordered him held without 
bond on the charges: possession 
of a firearm by a convicted fel- 
on, destruction of government 
property, feasting a federal of- 
ficer while armed and unlawful 
use of a firearm during the com- 
mission of a felony. 

If convicted, he could face up 
to 33 yean in prison and SI 

millio n in fines. 

Officiais said the additional 
eyidoce and testimony have 
significantly altwrwt their delib- 
erations by suggesting that Mr. 
Duran bad come to Washing- 
ton not merely to get attention 

or protest, but specifically to 
kill the president. 

Mr. Duran is accused of fir- 
ing 27 shots from a semiauto- 
matic rifle at the While House. 
No one was injured. 

David Mill is, a former co- 
worker of Mr. Duran’s at the 
Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado 
Springs, Colorado, where the 
suspect works as an upholster, 
said that Mr. Duran had said he 
was “going to take out the presi- 

Mr. Mitlis , 20, who said he 
knew Mr. Duran about seven 
months, said: 

“He used to talk a lot about 
the government, how it had 
screwed him over,” adding 
“and stuff like assassinating the 
president. I didn't think he was 
serious. I thought be was full of 
hot air." 

Among the papers law en- 
forcement officials found were 
a map with the words “kill the 
president — but he abbreviated 
the word president," said a law 
enforcement official. 

Some Treasury officials were 
initially skeptical that there was 
enough evidence to warrant 
charging Mr. Duran with an as- 
sassination attempt because the 

gunman aimed at the White 

House, not the president FBI 
officials believed, however, that 
the written material indicated 
Mr. Duran's intent in firing at 
the White House, sources said.

East German Spy Trader Goes on Trial 



By Craig R. Whitney 

New York Times Service 

BERLIN — A Cold War 
lawyer and spy trader who 
brokered freedom for 33,755 
East German political prison- 
ers in exchange for $2 3 billion 
paid to the Communists by 
the West German government 
went on trial Wednesday on 
charges of helping the secret 
police blackmail former cli- 
ents into leaving houses and 

folfgang Vogel, 69, who 
became a milli onaire and was 
a respected confidant of lead- 
ers on both sides of the Berlin 
Wall until its collapse five 
years ago made his services 
unnecessary, is the most 
prominent East Goman pri- 
vate citizen to be charged with 
knowingly taking part in 
criminal wrongdoing by the 
Communist regime. 

Prosecutors accused him of 
being an employee of the Min- 
istry of State Security from 
19S3 to 1989, a charge Mr. 
Vogel denies despite secret 
police files that show that he 
collaborated extensively with 
them for decades. 

The prosecutors are pursu- 
ing him separately for more 
than 9.5 milli on Deutsche 
marks ($63 million) in taxes 
that they say he should have 
paid to East Germany on in- 
come he got from the West 
German government and ch- 
eats during the 1980s. 

Mr. Vogel, now retired, in-

JERUSALEM (AFP) — Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin of

urged talks with moderate Muslims. “Hamas is the enemy of

war,” he told state radio. 

Police Minister Moshe Shaha3 proposed a dialogue, despite a 
string of attacks claimed by the fundamentalist group last month

New Yorker Writer Cleared of libel 

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Janet Malcolm, a New Yc 
writer, was cleared Wednesday of libel in a story about a ; 
analyst who accused her of making up quotations. 

In a trial last year, a jury had found Ms. Malcolm guilty of libel 
against Jeffrey Masson but deadlocked on the issue of damages, 
effectively nullifying the entire proceeding. 

The UJS. District Court jury ruled Wednesday that two of the 
five nhaHeng erf quotations in the article were false. But the panel

ately or recklessly falsified the statements.

Icing Cited as Possible Cause of U.S. Commuter Plane Crash 

Compiled by Our Staff From Dispatches 

ROSELAWN, Indiana — A 
commuter plane that crashed in 
northern Indiana, UdOing all 68 
aboard, flew in a holding pat- 
tern for more than 32 minutes 
in a cold blowing rain that 
could have caused ice to form 
on the wings and fuselage, 
sources dose to the investiga- 
tion said. 

But the investigation into the 
crash of American Eagle Flight 

41 84 so far has yielded no con- 
clusive evidence as to why the 
plane, a twin-engine turboprop, 
dropped from the sky Mouday 
night shortly after air-traffic 
controllers gave the two-man 
crew permission to leave the 
holding pattern and descend 
from 10,000 feet to 8,000 feet 
The flight was en route to Chi- 
cago from Indianapolis. 

Federal sources said there 
was no hint of trouble at any

point on tape recordings of the 
plane’s conversations with air- 
traffic controllers. The crew did 
not even mention the weather, 
and their last transmission was 
a routine acknowledgment of 
the clearance to descend. 

The plane, an ATR-72, built 
by a consortium of France’s 
Aerospatiale and Italy's Alita- 
lia, was new, had no service 
problems and the crew was ex- 
perienced with an unblemished 
record, according to the Federal 
Aviation Administration and 
American Eagle. 

As rescue workers continued 
removing broken bodies and 
sifting through shredded wreck- 
age, Monday’s weather condi- 
tions were an obvious area of 
inquiry by the National Trans- 
portation Safety Board. Several 

other aircraft reported icing 
conditions as they approached 
the Chicago area. 

Two in-flight weather advi- 
sories had been issued for tur- 
bulence and icing, said Jim 
Hall, the safety board chair- 
man. Investigators were check- 
ing the plane’s voice data re- 
corder to see if the pilot 
received the warnings. 

Board sources cautioned, 
however, that initial specula- 
tion on causes is often wrong. 
Icing, which can rob a plane of 
lift, was the initial speculation 
in the last two commuter airline 
crashes — at Hibbing, Minne- 
sota, on Dec. 1, 1993, and Co- 
lumbus, Ohio, on Jan. 7 — but 
proved not to be a factor. 

Board investigators are look- 
ing into numerous other possi- 


ble reasons that the 
plunged to the ground. 

It is not unusual for planes to 
fly in holding patterns for 32 
minutes, said David Hinson, an 
administrator with the Federal 
Aviation Administration. 
Planes are sometimes held for 
two to three hours, he said. 

Mr. Hall said investigators 
would be interviewing air traf- 
fic controllers in Chicago “to 
determine why they had them 
in that holding pattern,” and 
what the normal procedures are 
in such weather circumstances. 

Mr. Hall, describing the last 
minutes of the Indianapolis-to- 
Chicago flight, said preliminary 
transcripts showed there were 
no transmissions or distress sig- 
nals after the pilots agreed to 
circle for 10 minutes more. 

Investigative efforts since the 
crash have been hampered by 
rain and mud, but the weather 
cleared Wednesday, and offi-- 
dais prepared to begin carrying ji 
out the remains of the 64 pas- 
sengers and four crew members 1 
to a temporary morgue ax a 
nearby National Guard ar-; 

Authorities have said the se- 
verity of the crash made imme- 
diate identification of the vic- 
tims impossible.

Ethics of Whitewater Appointment Upheld 

■ j^^?^GTON — Citizens who questioned a federal 
judges luncheon meeting with two Republican senators 
while he was considering the appointment of the Whitewater 
dependent counsel are “naive" and have a “fundamental 
isunderstandi ng” of how such appointments are made, a 
supervisory judge said in dismissing their complaints, 
i- Judge Harry T. Edwards, the chief judge of the U.S. Court 
jpf Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, said the 
judge was allowed to consult with anyone he wanted while a 
^ panel he headed was weighing appointment of an indepen- 
dent counsel. Although he never named the judge in question. 
Judge Edwards described in detail ethical complaints against 
Judge David B. Sentelle, who serves with him on the D.C. 

. , Judge Sentelle is also presiding judge of the panel that 
anointed, an independent counsel to investigate Mr. Gin- 
ton's Whitewater real estate deal and his involvement with a 
.failed Arkansas savings and loan. 

‘There may be some members of society who would 
question the actions, of the accused judge, for they have a 
•pristine {albeit arguably naive) view of the appointment 

P rocess: But this is irrelevant," Judge Edwards wrote in the 
6-page opinion. 

• The Sentelle panel's decision in August to replace Special 
Prosecutor Robert B. Fiske Jr., a moderate Republican, with 
“an outspoken conservative, Kenneth W. Starr, a former 
federal appeals judge, was widely questioned after it was 
disclosed that Judge Sentelle had a July 14 luncheon meeting 
^wlth Senators Lauch haircloth and Jesse Helms. After the 
fohdi, judge Sentelle and Mr. Faircloth were seen huddled in 
idcep 1 conversation on the Capitol's underground tram. The 
judge said later that they were “old friends” talking about ■

The Candidates Use Crime to Bludgeon Edch Other 

By Howard Kurtz 

Washington Post Service 

WASHINGTON — In an ad for Jcb Bush, a 
Florida gubernatorial candidate, a mother whose 
daughter was murdered says: “Her killer is still 
on death row and we’re still waiting for justice. 
We won’t get it from Lawton Chiles because he's 
too liberal on crime.” 

In an ad For George EL Pataki. a New York 
gubernatorial nominee, a mother whose son was 
killed by a repeat offender says: "I blame it all on 
Cuomo and his policies. . . . Cuomo does not care 
about the victims of crime. He cares about the 

In an ad for a Pennsylvania gubernatorial 
candidate, Thomas J. Ridge, the narrator says: 
"In 1992, Mark Singe! votes to free a murderer. 

Now the same man is arrested again Just a 

mistake or too liberal on crime?" 

It is perhaps the ultimate negative ad, blaming 
a public official for an innocent person's death or 
leniency for the kiiler. In the closing days of a 
nationwide election campaign marked from the 
start by harsh advertising, several candidates 
have unleashed such a weapon, raising the emo- 
tional stakes by focusing on heart-rending vic- 
tims of crime. 

The use of personal tragedy to assail an oppo- 
nent — often by turning the camera on a grieving 
parent or spouse — represents a chilling refine- 
ment of the technique used in the Willie Horton 
ads of 1988. Those ads, produced in support of 
then- Vice President George Bush, used Horton, 
a convicted murderer, to bludgeon Michael S. 
Dukakis, then the governor of Massachusetts. 
Horton raped a Maryland woman and stabbed 
her fiance after Mr. Dukakis granted him u 

The use of crime victims or their families is 
“dangerous as hell,** said Don Sipple, a Republi- 
can consultant who has made several stark ads 
about crime. “I think you are vulnerable to 
charges that you’re using someone else's pain for 
political advantage. You're trying to put blood 
on someone’s hands, which a lot of people think 
is unfair." 

But Mike Murphy, a Republican ad maker, 
believes such spots are effective. “People tend to 
believe the victim, not the politician," he said. 

As further evidence of a determination to 
harness the public’s anger about crime, some

Governor Cuomo has been trading charges with Republican candidate George Pataki. 

officeholders arc trying to turn their own person- 
al disclosures to political advantage. 

Georgia’s Republican gubernatorial candi- 
date, Guy Millner. made an ad in which his 31- 
year-old daughter talked about her encounter 
with a knife-wielding burglar. Representative 
James Cooper. Democrat of Tennessee, made an 
ad about an intruder's attempt to break into his 
house while his wife was at home. And during a 
recent debate, California's Democratic guberna- 
torial candidate, Kathleen Brown, spoke of her 
daughter's rape. 

Unlike the Horton commercial, which pic- 
tured the black convict, the 1994 ads avoid any 
reference to race. 

The ad for Jeb Bush, the former president's 
son, begins with a picture of 10-year-old Elisa 
Nelson in her baseball uniform as her mother. 
Wendy, recalls her murder in 1980. Mrs. Nelson 
complained that Florida's governor, a Democrat, 
had not signed enough death warrants. “I know 
Jeb Bush," she says. “He'll make criminals serve 
their sentences and enforce the death penalty. 
Lawton Chiles won't." 

Mr. Chiles called the ad “crass" and “a repeat 
of Willie Horton." Mr. Chiles noted Lhat the 
Nelson case had never come before him — the 
killer's execution has been delayed by court ap- 
peals — and that he had presided over eight 
executions during his term, compared with nine 
under his Republican predecessor. 

Frank Greer, Mr. Chiles’s media adviser, said 
51 percent of those surveyed by. .the campaign 
thought Mr. Bush's charge was unfair,, while 23 
percent deemed it legitimate. “It’s backfired big 
time," Mr. Greer said. "It’s scandalous exploita- 
tion of a victim. At least tbe Willie Horton ad 
had some semblance of truth." 

Mr. Greer is using press criticism in a counter- 
attack spot: “The Miami Herald says the Bush 
campaign had ‘sunk to new depths, 1 exploiting 
the anger and pain of a crime victim. . . . The 
Bush campaign should be ashamed. ... If Jeb 
Bush won r t tell the truth about matters of life 
and death, how can we trust him with our 

The New York Tunes labeled as “shameful” 
and “cynical" the ad for Mr. Pataki, a Republi- 
can. It featured Carol McCauliff, whose son was 
killed in July by a Tnan who remained on parole 
despite repeated violations. But news accounts 
noted that his full sentence expired three weeks 
before the murder, so he would have been free 
regardless of parole. 

Not to be outdone, Mario Cuomo aired an ad 
featuring Carolyn McCarthy, whose husband 
was killed in the Long Island Railroad shooting 
in December 1993. She says that Mr. Pataki’s 
implication that Mrs. McCauliffs son “could 
still be alive if he had been the governor is a cruel 
and hurtful hoax." 

“I’m a Republican," she continues, “but this 
shows that George Pataki doesn't have the char- 
acter to be governor." 

The Pataki campaign did not return several 
phone calls. 

The victims’ relatives, for their part, simply 
want to get their message out Wendy Nelson 
says she volunteered to make the ad after Mr. 
Bush expressed interest in her plight at a cam- 
paign event. She does not feel used in any way. 

“I am very frustrated with the system,'* Mrs. 
Nelson said. “1 think a system lhat takes 14 years 
to execute someone is broken." 

The Pennsylvania case is more clearly fair 
game. Lieutenant Governor Mark Singel, a 
Democrat, has apologized for recommending, as 
head of the state's Board of Pardons, the release 
of Reginald McFadden, a convicted murderer 
who has since been charged with the rape and 
murder of a 78-year-old woman. Mr. Singel 
called tire commutation last year “a decision 1 
will regret for the rest of my fife." 

Canada to Let la Fewer Immig rants 

By Anne Swardson 

Washington Post Service 

TORONTO — Canada has 
announced that it will accept 
fewer legal immigrants each 
year and overhaul immigration 
guidelines to give less emphasis 
to family members and more to 
those with marketable skills. 

The action came in response 
to widespread sentiments lhat 
Canada, which apeepts propor- 
tionately more immigrants than 
any other major industrial na- 

tion, has become too generous 
to those who seek to come here. 

The announcement marked a 
policy reversal for the govern- 
ing Liberal Party of Prime Min- 
ister Jean Chretien, who prom- 
ised when he was campaigning 
just over a year ago that be 
would keep immigration at 
about 1 percent of population 
and give priority to the families 
of those already in Canada.

Portuguese territory in 1975

go forward, then both donors and recipi- 
ents will have to work hard to ensure that 
the money flow is complemented by in- 
creased trade and private-sector invest- 
ment, fiscal discipline and the kinds of 
structural reforms that lead to more open 
markets. And in the future — the present 
Algerian civil war notwithstanding — the 
greatest threat to economic growth in the 
region may no longer be war but the ability 
and will of governments to carry out the 
kind of reform programs that have worked 
in regions such as Latin America and parts 
of Eastern Europe. 

On the plus side of the ledger are some 
truly ambitious aid proposals: 

• In December, leaders of EU member 
nations will discuss a plan to more than 
double aid to the region, to about $7 bil- 
lion over the next five years, and to pursue 
an expanded free-trade zone that would 
bridge the Mediterranean. 

• Caio Koch-Weser, the World Bank's 
vice president for the region, said Wednes- 
day that his institution “stands ready to 
double” its lending to the Middle East and 
North Africa, to $3 billion a year. The 
World Bank has already taken the lead in 
coordinating $2.4 billion of donations for 
the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. 

• Aid from Washington to the region, 
including debt forgiveness, is likely to rise 
over the next few years. Excluding military 
assistance, U.S. aid tins year to Israel is 
$1.8 billion and to Egypt $800 million. 

Jordan, which has won substantial debt 
forgiveness from Washington, is also likely 
to benefit. 

The European Union's aid proposal, 
while couched in economic terms, “is first 
and foremost an instrument of security 
policy,” according to Peter Ludlow, direc- 
tor of the Center for European Policy 
Studies in Brussels. Mr. Ludlow noted that 
the EU was worried about future waves of 
immigration from North Africa and the 
specter of “instability which could endan- 
ger investments or lead to conflict in the 
region which could spill over.” 

The United States, given its central role 
in the Middle East peace process and its 
interest in oil, is dearly keen to help spur 
economic growth in the region for strategic 
reasons. But American business is also 
interested in investment opportunities, 
and more than one European commenta- 
tor noticed that there were far more Amer- 
ican than European corporate executives 
present in Casablanca. 

The United States, together with Israel, 
is pressing, meanwhile, for the establish- 
ment of a development bank for the re- 
gion. Although some Gulf states, led by 
Saudi Arabia, objected to the idea of anew 
development bank, the Casablanca confer- 
ence did agree to go ahead with a working 

Lawrence Summers, the Treasury un- 
dersecretary, stressed in an interview 
Wednesday that a development bank 
would have to provide much-needed 
kkow-how and help build institutions rath- 
ex than simply hand out loan aid. 

“The challenge for the region is building 
a strong private sector that exploits the 
region’s economic potential,” Mr. Sum- 
mers said. “That’s partially a matter of 
helping businesses, and also a matter of 
providing infrastructure in which markets 
can operate.” 

The prospect of as much as $30 billion 
of government and multilateral aid flow- 
ing to the region between now and the year 
2000 , meanwhile, raises a host of questions 
— such as bow much can be absorbed, how 
quickly infrastructure projects can go for- 
ward and to what degree governments will 
be able to match aid programs with fiscal 
discipline, deregulation of hitherto central- 
ized economies and even privatization pro-

Japan Adopts Electoral Reform 

Star York T:mn Service 

TOKYO — After more than four years of 
battling, the lower house of Parliament 
adopted final legislation on Wednesday creat- 
ing a new electoral system and tougher cam- 
paign financing laws, part of a long promised 
effort to clean up Japan's politics. 

Passage of the bills, which included de- 
tailed outlines of the 300 new electoral dis- 
tricts, means that the bitterly contested laws 
can take effect in December. 

As a result, it is certain that the next parlia- 
mentary elections will be held under the new 

system, and thus could profoundly alter the 

balance or power in the Parliament and fur- 
ther realign the battered party system. 

The three bills finalized Wednesday were 
passed in outline in January. The laws will 

transform the election system from one in 
which from three to six representatives arc 
elected for each district to one in which a 
single representative will be elected from each 
district. There will also be 200 representatives 
elected from party lineups. Overall, that will 
reduce the size of the lower house of Parlia- 
ment to 550 seats; from 511. 

The laws will also restrict the amounts 
corporations can donate to campaigns and 
levy heavier penalties against those who vio- 
late the financing laws. Another provision 
will proride for partial public financing of 
election campaigns. 

It Is widely expected that the new system 
will reduce the number of parties represented 
in Parliament and eventually create a two- 
party system. 

Parties Agree on Atom Bomb Compensation

TOKYO — The Japanese Parliament's coali- 
tion partners reached agreement Wednesday on 
a measure that would compensate victims of the 
1945 atomic bombings. 

The bill calls on the government to pay 
100,000 yen (51.000) in one-time compensation 
to a person who was injured or lost family 
members in the atomic bombings. 

Under the measure, which is expected to be- 
come law in the current session of Parliament, at 
least 230,000 people will receive compensation, 
officials said. 

The agreement was reached between the Lib- 
eral Democratic Party, the Social Democratic 
Party and the Japan New Party Sakigake. 

Hiroshima and Nagasaki were devastated by 
U.S. atomic bombs in the closing stages of World 

The decision averted a potential government 
crisis, since a failure in the negotiations could 
have weakened the power base of Prime Minister 
Tonuichi Murayama’s coalition cabinet. 

There had been a wide gap in positions over . 
the scope of compensation in several rounds of 
talks among the three parties. But an official with 
the Liberal Democrats said the party had 
reached a compromise with the Social Demo- 
crats to maintain the coalition, which was 
formed in late June. 

The chief cabinet secretary. Kozo lgarashi, 1 
said that Korean residents in Japan who suffered 
in the atomic h omin gs would also receive

Bonn Ponders Pardon for a jailed Terrorist 

Case of Red Army Member Is Political as Well as Judicial 

By Rick Atkinson 

,< Washington Post Service 

■ BERLIN — For more than two de- 
cades, Irmgaxd Moller has given no 
quarter and shown no remorse. Not 
when she swapped the values of a privi- 
leged middle-class mil for those of a 
radical leftist Not when she killed three 
U.S. soldiers in a 1972 bombing. Not 
when she was sentenced to life in prison 
'tor murder. 

'« And not now, when authorities are 
■Contemplating whether to set her free 
“after 22 years in jail 

A founding member of the Baader- 
Meinhof gang, later known as the Red 
Army Faction, Miss MdUer remains un- 
repentant regarding both her violent 
past and her victims. Der Spiegel maga- 
zine last week quoted her as asserting 
that "the armed struggle was legiti- 

Nevertheless, Miss MODer has be- 
come a cause celfcbre and her release is 
loudly supported by clergy, writers, poli- 
ticians and her warden. Now 47 and the 
longest-serving female inmate in Ger- 
many, sbe is also a martyr of the far left, 
having survived 12 hunger strikes and a 
mass suicide that claimed the lives of 
other Baader-Meinbof leaders in 1977. 

Although the German press has pre- 
dicted Miss Mailer's immin ent parole, 
the issue likely will be deferred until 
mid-November, according to Judge 
Klaus Fink of the slate court in Lubeck, 
where she is serving her sentence. Prose- 
cutors, defense attorneys and other au- 
thorities must first meet to consider her 
petition for early release and review her 
psychological evaluation, Mr. Fink add- 

Miss MOller refused to cooperate with 
the evaluation, reportedly saying that It 
was only intended to prove that "anyone 
hens who dares to show resistance most 
obviously be rick." Bat on the basis of 
observing her behavior at various legal 
proceedings, a court-appointed psychol- 
ogist recently concluded that she no 
longer poses a threat to society. 

The Moller case has ramifications be- 

yond the fundamental question of when 
justice should be tempered with mercy. 
Bonn has forged a fragile peace with the 
Red Army Faction, which waged a 20- 
year "struggle against imperialism and 
monopoly capitalism.” The radical left 
has not killed anyone since 1991, with 
the exception of a botched arrest last 
year that left a policeman and a fugitive 
terrorist dead. 

Freeing Miss Moller may be promot- 
ed as a token of good faith by govern- 
ment authorities. Some legal experts 
predict that her parole will be followed 
by the release of other Red Army Fac- 
tion stalwarts. Seven others still in jail 
have served at least 15 years each. 

The German judicial system has been 
accused in recent years of being “blind 
in the right eye," that is, showing lenien- 
cy in the prosecution and sentencing of 
far rightist or xenophobic offenders 
while cracking down on radical leftists. 

But in trying to balance justice with 
the government's desire to nurture do- 
mestic tranquillity, a willingness to for- 
give, if not forget, has gained momen- 
tum. On OcL 21, German officials 
released Ingrid Jakobsmeier, 40, who 
had served two-thirds of a 15-year sen- 
tence for a 1981 Red Army attack on 

Ramstein Air Base that wounded 17. 

In May, outgoing President Richard 
von WeizsScker pardoned Bernhard 
Rfissner, who had served 19 years for a 
1975 Red Army attack on the Goman 
Embassy in Stockholm in which four 
people were killed. Two other faction 
members, jailed for the 1987 bombing of 
an aviation plant in southern Germany, 
were paroled last year after renouncing 

The federal prosecutor’s office m 
Karlsruhe says that 17 Red Army mem- 
bers are still in German prisons. Anoth- 
er seven are being sought for violent 
crimes, according to the Federal Crime 

Those still at large have remained 
mostly dormant. Responding to govern- 
ment peace feelers, the Red Army issued 
a statement in 1992 pledging to "no 
longer attack leading representatives of 
the economy and the state” while await- 
ing further moves from Boon. That un- 
easy arrangement has more or less held, 
although the Red Army last year blew 
up a S 100 million prison shortly before 
its grand opening. 

The path to a political solution has 
been somewhat complicated by infor- 
mation obtained from the files of the 
Stasi, the former East Ge rman secret 
police, and testimony from former Red 
Army members who had taken refuge in 
the East 

That evidence has led to new charges 
and new trials, threatening to reopen did 
wounds. Last November, for example, 
Rolf Klemens Wagner, already serving a 
life sentence for the 1977 murder of a 
German business executive, was given 

another life term for the attempted as- 
sassination of General Alexander M. 
Haig when be was the supreme com- 
mander of the North Atlantic Treaty 

thus Miss Mailer's case carries politi- 
cal as well as judicial significance. 

She was arrested in the May 24, 1972, 
attack on the U.S. base in Heidelberg in 
which three U.S. soldiers were killed 
when she and a companion drove two 
explosives- laden cars onto the base. She 
has been in jail ever since. 

When asked in a 1992 interview if she 
feds sympathy for Red Army Fusion 
victims, Miss Moller replied, “I can’t 
deal with this personally or individual- 

■ Bonn Bars U.S. Influence 

A German court win not be influ- 
enced by the U.S. government in decid- 
ing whether to release Miss Moller, a 
spokesman said Wednesday, according 
to The Associated Press in Bonn. 

The U.S. State Department said Tues- 
day regarding the M6Uer case that it 
opposed freeing leftist terrorists who 
have shown no remorse. David Johnson 
of the U.S. State Department said in 
Washington: "We consider politically 
motivated attacks on noncombatants as 
terrorism, and not as a legitimate part of 
an ‘armed struggle,’ as she is reported to 
have suggested.” 

Responding Wednesday, Wolfgang 
Neskovic, spokesman for Schleswig- 
Holstein state court in Ltibeck, said: 
"The court bases its decision not on the 
statements of whatever politicians, but 
on the fulfillment of legal precondi- 
tions ” He said the court hoped to make 
a decision before the end of the month 
on Miss Moller^ request, and that one 
of the considerations was whether she is 
likely to commit more crimes if released.

Spaniards Lament Ruining of the Bulls

in the November 7th 
issue of the newspaper. 

Nete York Times Service 

MADRID — From prehistoric cave 
paintings to Picasso murals, bubs have 
always been associated with Spam's na- 
tional imagery. Or so almost everyone in 
Spain is now passionately affirming since 
die Ministry of Public Works has con- 
demned dozens of huge metal cutouts of 
bulls that dot the countryside. 

Weighing more than four rims, they 
stand about 40 square feet (3.6 square 
meters) and have loomed on hills, plains, 
cliffs, farmlands, and vineyards since 1957 
as advertisements for a brandy called Ve- 

For the vast majority of Spaniards, the 
bulls, 97 of them, nave become part of the 
nation's cultural and artistic heritage. But 
for the Public Works Ministry and the 
European Union, the black silhouettes are 
mere advertising, and in 1988 the govern- 
ment banned all the billboards as safety 

Because legislation was unclear about 
nonwritten advertisements, the bulls 
gained a reprieve after Osborne, an Anda- 

lusian wine and spirits company that owns 
the metal billboards, painted over the red- 
lettered brand name. In September, how- 
ever, the government banned all types of 
advertising or advertising symbols that are 
visible from highways. 

As Osborne appealed to the Supreme 
Court, a national debate has risen in de- 
fense of the endangered national symbol 
An association called Espaha Abierta, or 
Open Spain, demanded that the bulls be 
declared part of Spain's artistic patrimony. 

“The Osborne bull is one of the most 
original symbols that advertising has ever 
produced, becoming a unique and solid 
reference to our collective consciousness," 
said Agapito Pageo, the chairman of Espa- 
na Abierta. 

After weeks of passionate debate on 
television and radio talk shows, during 
which intellectuals and artists joined the 
bandwagon, the Andalusian regional gov- 
ernment announced plans on OcL 13 to 
catalogue the bulls as part of the region’s 
cultural heritage, thereby rescuing 20. 

Hundreds of towns have offered to install 
bulls on municipal land, safe from high- 
way jurisdiction. 

To Bigas Luna, the Catalonian film di- 
rector who used one of the giant bulls as a 
backdrop for his movie “Jamon, Jamon" 
in 1992, “the Osborne bull is contempo- 
rary art” So Mr. Luna offered to buy all 
the endangered 97 bulls and install them as 
an outdoor museum in Monegros, a barren 
hilly area in northeastern Spain where the 
movie was filmed. Osborne said it would 
consider any offer if all amnesty efforts 

Despite the grass-roots support for the 
bulls, the Public Works Ministry argued it 
had no power to determine exceptions to 
the law. A spokesman said the highway 
department would await the Supreme 
Court’s ruling, a process that will give the 
bulls another reprieve of about three years. 

In the meantime, Osborne and bull 
ers hope that other regional government 
will also declare the roadside silhouettes 
works of art. 

Lust, greed, envy, hate, 
love, joy- 

everything in life is there. 

And that’s 
just Charlie Brown.

. Todays this tiny country is Hooded with 
international relief. The world's govern- 
ments have contributed $384 million to the 
United Nations for what is called the 
Rwanda crisis, and the streets of the capi- 
tal arc crowded with white vehicles from 
nearly every UN agency. And there are 
toore than 100 nongovernmental relief 
agencies from around the world working 
here, from African to World Vision. 

But from this sea of international aid, 
there has been barely a drop for the new 
Rwandan government 

Almost every day, Mr. NkubilO said. 

another relief organization calls on him, 
asking him what he needs. Finally, he 
prepared a memo, which he has had to type 
repeatedly since he has no copy machine. 
His needs run from vehicles to typewriters 
and paper, to say nothing of glass. 

“Up to this day, I have not received one 
thing,” he said in an interview. 

Even senior UN officials think that the 
international aid is not being well spent. 
“If 1 were a taxpayer, I would want to 
know what are you doing with the $384 
million,” said Shabajyr Khan, the ranking 
UN official here. Much of the money is 
going to caring for refugees and establish- 
ing long-term programs rather than to re- 
building the structure of the government. 

The millions being spent on the refugees 
was “very necessary,” he said, but it was 
equally critical for money to be made 
available for toe government so that it 

could begin to provide rudimentary ser- 
vices. “1 think the donor co mmuni ty 
should look at what is really needed,” Mr. 
Khan said. 

The windows in the airport control tow- 
er, shattered during the civil war, are still 
boarded up. It would cost S30.000 to put in 
new glass. The United Nations does not 
have the money. 

The power company needs S2 10.000 to 

pay workers for three months, the time 
needed to restore power throughout the 
country. The UN operation here cannot 
come up with that money either. 

Nor can the government. The banks and 
treasury were looted by the former officials 
as they fled. Without money to pay sala- 
ries. the government has assigned soldiers 
to most civil functions, from traffic control 
to customs inspections. 

The situation is made worse because 
even the army is not being paid. This 
means that soldiers are finding other ways 
to get money. In the capital soldiers have 
taken over several houses, abandoned by 
occupants who fled, and are renting theip 
for profiL Soldiers are also in charge of 
many prisons because the Justice Ministry 
has no money to run them, Mr. Nkubito 
said. * 

rica Cuts Pay of Senior Officials 

By Bill Keller 

New York Tuna Service 
. .JOHANNESBURG — Stung by 
of fo&J-bvmg officials and pressed byin- 
. heated debts, President Nelson Mandela's 
government has announced austerity mea- 
mcluding cutting the pay of top 
dected officials, whittling down the Civil 
^Service and selling some state-owned busi- 

changes, ^ announced by Thabo 
.Mbeki, Mr. Mandela’s first deputy, were a 
response to growing public disillusionment 
with South Africa's first freely elected gov- 
ernment. ° 

. Many people feel that the government 
has preached patience and discipline to the 
public, while reveling in the comforts of 

Mr. Mbeki said the cuts were intended 
to change the government into a “leaner 
and more effective catalyst” for delivering 
social programs and economic growth. 

He said that Mr. Mandela and his two 
deputy presidents would take a 20 percent 
pay cut — the president* s salary would fall 
■from $163,000 to $130,000 — and that 

lower-ranking public officials would lose 
up to 10 percent of their pay. 

The pay cuts, while largely symbolic, are 
intended to restore public confidence in 
the government’s devotion to the poor, 
which has flagged in the face of indignant 
press accounts of lavish salaries. Concorde 
trips, new official silverware and free- 
spending bodyguards. 

Mr. Mandela, who has been on vacation, 
chafed in a recent interview over the diffi- 
culty of calling for public sacrifice when no 
one believes that the government is setting 
an example. 

“We have this problem: we have the 
high salaries and we are living in luxury,” 
he said. “That destroys your capacity to 
speak in a forthright manner and tell peo- 
ple to tighten their belts.” 

Potentially far more important than the 
pay cuts were the vows to shake up the 
Civil Service and to begin privatizing state 

The savings would go to reduce a stran- 
gling national debt incurred by toe former 
white government. 

There was no indication which of many 
government assets would be sold. During 

the decades of white rule, the government 
developed a valuable list of state-owned 
enterprises, including South African Air- 
ways. electrical and telephone utilities, 
railroads, an oil exploration company, and 
a chain of resorts. 

The interest in privatizing some of these 
companies is a remarkable twist for Mr. 
Mandela's African National Congress, 
which until recently favored the reverse — 
nationalizing private enterprises as a way 
of redistributing white wealth. 

Converted to toe doctrines of fiscal dis- 
cipline and free markets, Mr. Mandela and 
other lop officials now argue that selling 
off government companies not only would 
raise money for social programs but also 
could be a way to attract foreign invest- 
ment and create more black capitalists. 

Mr. Mandela’s party has been ridiculed 
by its allies because one of its first acts was 
to accept a pay raise recommended by a 
commission of the departing government 

“Someone has observed that they 
stopped toe gravy train only long enough 
to get on,” said Archbishop Desmond 
Tutu, the Anglican leader and Noble Peace 
Prize laureate.

MAPUTO, Mozambique — 
A UN special representative, 
Aldo Ajelio, said Wednesday 
that voting in Mozambique’s

peared to have been free and

*ion that could have- affected

according to a prefiminaiy re- 

port read by Mr. Ajelio at a 
news conference. 

His statement and a similar 
one by observers from toe Eu- 
ropean Union would pressure 
the Mozambique National Re- 
; tistarice, or Renaroo, to accept 
the election results, which so far 
show it running a distant sec-

Parliament voting. 

lie former rebel group had 
claimed irreg ularities in voter 
registration . and other prob- 
lems, but agreed to accept the 

result if toe international com- 
munity ruled toe three-day elec- 
tion free and fair. 

“The voting can be described 
as having been carried out 
peacefully and with integrity,” 
said Mr. Ajelio, who headed toe 
6,000-member UN military op- 
eration that provided security 
in Mozambique and helped to 
set up the vote. 

He said the 2,300 UN observ- 
ers at polling stations through- 
out the country had received 
“no information about any ma- 

jor irregularity, incident or 
breach of toe electoral law 
which could have adversely af-

An official pronouncement 
on toe fairness of the election 
would come only after toe vole-

China After the Emperor 

In a Communist state one point of 
deep vulnerability is the recurrent crisis 
of succession. It is like the politics of an 
absolute monarchy in which everything 
i on who inherits the throne. But, 
a monarchy’s, China’s rules of 
inheritance are always in contention. 
Deng Xiaoping, who has held the ulti- 
mate power in China for 16 years, is now 
slowly dying. His grip has failed to a 
point at which open competition has bro- 
ken out among the many factions vying 
to name his successor. 

The key question for the Chinese is 
whether the economic reforms will con- 
tinue under the next emperor. It was Mr. 
Deng who relaxed the central govern- 
ment’s control over economic lue and 
began to move the country toward open 
markets. The results have been spectacu- 
lar. Since 1980, according to the World 
Bant, the country’s output has been ris- 
ing by more chan 9 percent a year — three 
times the worldwide average, and a rate 
slightly better than Japan’s in the steepest 
phase of its ascent a generation ago. 

Rapid growth imposes fierce strains on 
any society and inevitably threatens the 
exis ting distribution of power. Not every- 
one in the Communist leadership wel- 
comes it But you have to be skeptical 
about the proposition, incautiously taken 
for granted by many Americans, that 

open markets will quickly and directly 
bring political democracy. Two smaller 
Asian countries. South Korea and Tai- 
wan, grew rich under highly authoritarian 
governments and only very recently have 
begun to turn convincingly toward de- 
mocracy. The pressures For more open 
government in China are substantial, but 
whether they will triumph in this decade, ' 
or even in this generation, is no more 
easily predictable than anything else 
about the coming succession. 

China’s brilliant progress toward ; 
er prosperity is often contrasted wit 
current turbulence and instability in Rus- 
sia. Bui Russia has (me important advan- 
tage. In abandoning one-party rule and 
taking that crucial step toward democracy, 
it has begun to develop a style of govern- 
ment that will probably prove better suited 
than China's to riding through the enor- 
mous social dislocations and stresses that 
both countries are encountering. 

In choosing China’s next emperor, the 
Communist Party, which is by no means 
of one mind on the subject, faces a dire 
choice. Maintaining traditional political 
control means much slower growth, just 
as continued fast growth requires a fur- 
ther relaxation of control. That is the 
choice around which Chinese politics 
now revolves. 


Exploiting Honest Grief 

Families of murder victims have heart- 
breaking stories to tell, but candidates for 
political - office all over America are dis- 
playing a distasteful tendency to exploit 
these stories for their own benefit. This is 
a shameful new form of victim abuse. The 
shame is compounded when the politi- 
cian fraudulently uses a family’s bereave- 
ment to argue for the death penalty and 
to depict an opponent as soft on crime. 

Take the Florida commercial in which 
Jeb Bush, running for governor, attacks 
the incumbent, Lawton Chiles. It shows 
the mother of a 10-year-old murder vic- 
tim, Elisa Nelson, who says that Lany 
Mann, convicted of Elisa’s lolling 14 
years ago, “is still on death row and we're 
still waiting for justice:” She adds: “We 
won't get it from Lawton Chiles because 
he’s too liberal on crime." 

The complaint is that Mr. Chiles has 
not signed a new death warrant to replace 
the expired warrant signed in I98o. But 
signing a new warrant would not speed 
the execution, since, as the governor ex- 
plains. the case is still on appeal in the 
courts. Ibis, then, is a bad rap on Mr. 
Chiles even among those who lust for 
executions, since eight killers have been 
executed during his term. 

New Yorkers have been exposed to a 
similar case of false packaging. Attacking 
Governor Mario Cuomo’s opposition to 
the death penalty, the Republican chal- 
lenger George Pa tala's campaign pro- 
duced an ad that blamed a particular 
murder on Mr. Cuomo’s allegedly soft 

parole policies. On camera is Carol 
McCauliff of Red Hook, Brooklyn, de- 
scribing the murder of bar son. “I blame 
it. all on Cuomo and his policies," she 
says, adding: “Cuomo does not care 
about the vic tims of crimes He cares 
about the c riminals ." Yet state records 
show that the killer, although he had been 
paroled, was not on parole at the time of 
the crime. His full sentence had ended 
before the murder, so he would have been 
free in any event. 

Not all victim f amilie s agitate for the 
death penalty, and one Cuomo ad makes 
a worthy point about an effective but 
largely ignored way to decrease murders. 
The ad features one victim and a relative 
of two other victims in the shootings on 
the Long Island Rail Road last December. 
Carolyn McCarthy, whose husband was 
killed and whose son was partly paralyzed, 
argues not for capital punishment but for a 
state ban on assault weapons that the 
governor seeks. “He's been fighting so 
hard to get this bill passed," Ms. McCar- 
thy says. “I don't understand why the 
Republicans — and Tma Republican, and 
this really hurts — they’re fighting this." 

The grief and anger of family members 
in the death penalty ads is real, but its 
exploitation is cynical and unworthy. 
Most of the ads insult the intelhgeuce of 
viewers, and some of them are plain 
wrong as to the facts. Viewers cannot 
stop the tawdry show, but they 
change channels. 



Gentlemen All 

On one of the Sunday morning inter- 
view shows, presidential adviser George 
Stephanopoulos referred several times to 
the person charged with firing a semiau- 
tomatic rifle at the White House as the 
“gentleman.” That would seem an odd 
use of the word, but oddly enough it isn’t 
anymore. The term is regularly employed 
these days by police officers and law 
enforcement spokesmen to describe sus- 
pected bank robbers, housebreakers, ho- 
micidal maniacs and caij ackers they have 
nabbed, as well as whatever free-ranging 
felons they might be tracking at the mo- 
ment. (“The gentleman was last seen 
wearing a ski mask and firing at random 
from a pickup truck on 1-63") 

Our dictionary has a number of defini- 
tions for “gentleman." The first is “a man 
of good family, breeding or social posi- 
tion." Among the othms are “a civilized, 
educated, sensitive, or well-mannered 
man" (No. 4) and “a male attendant 
upon a long, queen or other royal person" 
(No. 6). None seems to exactly fit the 
category of violent criminal. 

It is possible that the transformation 
of suspects into gentlemen (assuming 

that it isn’t just a case of the police being 
sarcastic) is part of the trend toward a 
more expansive view of due process, 
which has been a matter of continuing 
concern ever since Sergeant Joe Friday 
started advising suspects of their Mir- 
anda rights. Thus, a defendant might be 
entitled not only to a lawyer and the 
presumption of innocence but to the 
supposition that he could just as well be 
a fine fellow and a civilized, educated, 
well-mannered pillar of the community 
— at least until his trial, after which he 
may be known as an ax murderer. 

Eventually, the dictionary will proba- 
bly have to bow to current usage and 
add a new definition, something on the 
order of: “any male person not actually 
convicted of a serious crime or whose 
conviction was not overturned on ap- 
peal." Purists will blanch, but the Amer- 
ican electorate, in its current sour mood, 
would probably consider it quite appro- 
priate if the new line were inserted right 
after definition No. 8 as it now appears 
in the dictionary: gentleman — “a male 
member of the U.S. Congress." 


Other Comment 

North Korea: Building Trust 

We have had objectives through these 
16 months of negotiations that were pret- 
ty dear. Overall, we’ve characterized 
than as a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula, 
but the subtext to that was to deal with 
problems which we can roughly charac- 
terize as problems that relate to the past 
activity of the North Koreans, the cur- 
rent nudear program and the direction 

that the program was headed in the fu- 
ture. And we think the framework docu- 
ment that we negotiated addresses ail 
three of these areas of their program. 

The agreement is not, as thepresident 
said, based on trust. Maybe it'll produce 
trust, but it’s not based on trust. It’s 
based on verified compliance. And well 
be watching all along the way. 

— Robert CaUucd, chief US. negotiator, 
as quoted by The Washington Post.

Japan’s Anti-War Constitution Was and Remains Wise f 

T OKYO — - Calls for Japan, as an as- 
piring permanent member of the UN 
Security Council, to play a more active 
role in United Nations military activities 
are dangerous. They ignore the anti-war 
clause in Japan’s constitution. Worse, they 
ignore the reasons why the Allied powers, 
the United States especially, insisted on 
that clause in the first place. 

In 1943, the Allies accepted that mili- 
taristic Japan was not quite in the same 
category as Nazi Germany. Important 
elements in Japan had trial to counter 
the militarists. To some extent Japanese 
aggressions were moves to counter earlier 
Western expansion into Asia. So Japan 
was allowed to retain its emperor system, 
and purges of top Japanese were not as 
thorough as they might have been. 

The war had also revealed the com- 
plete inability of the Japanese govern- 
ment to control its militaiy, and the emo- 
tional ease with which the Japanese 
people could be led into all manner of 

hysterical militaristic excess once the mil- 
itary did gain control. 

By Gregory Clark 

It was for these good reasons that 
Japan, unlike Germany, was forced by 
its postwar constitution to “forever re- 
nounce war as a sovereign right of the 
nation arid the threat or use of force as a 
means of settling international disputes." 

Nothing has happened since 1943 to 
change those reasons. The Japanese are 
still a highly emotional people — witness 
the recent land and share booms, for ex- 
ample. And as in the past, the government 
is stiH unable to control its ministries. 

In Japan’s tribally cellular society, 
groups put ihdr own interests, survival 
and expansion ahead of aQ else. If rival 
groups compete there Is a kind of rough 
control, but without competition the cells 
expand cancerously, to the point where 
they can easily dominate the entire body 
politic. That is what happened with the 
prewar militaiy. It could happen again. 

Even in postwar, pacifist Japan it is 
taken for granted that the military can 

im pose total loyalty and indoctrination 
on its members; that, after all, is what 
other groups do to guarantee their otis- 
tence. Most also accept that the military 
is entitled to boost its prestige and mo- 
rale. Every move to send forces abroad 
for peacekeeping operations and other 
purposes, even a few minesweepers into 
the Gulf, is used for heavy chest-puffing 

The West could influence the outcome 
of this struggle. Out of ignorance and 
misplaced zeal, the Western media have 
backed Mr. Ozawa’s activism and pooh- 
poohed the current Socialist/ LDP coali- 
tion go vernm ent Die media should do 
more homework- 

Meanwhile, Tokyo should be encour-

The “tribal” political factions and parties 
are gradually merging into Western-style 
parties. A key issue is whether the anti- 
war constitution should be revised to 
allow Japan to play a more activist mili- 
tary role in the United Nations etc. 

The Socialists and liberal elements 
from the formerly dominant Liberal 
Democratic Party or elsewhere are grad- 
ually forcing themselves into a pro-con- 
stitution, anti-activist bloc. Others, cen- 
tered on the former LDP power broker 
Idnro Ozawa, use the banner of national 
reform to push in the opposite direction. 

meat of a United Nations register of all 
anus sales. It could go one stage further; 
propose that future UN military spend- 
ing be met mainly by the nations that 
profited from those aims sales. 

Many in Asia are less than happy to sec 
the Japanese militaiy flexing muscle. Mr. 
Ozawa has gained much favorable publici- 
ty in the West over his call for Japan to 
behave as an “ordinary” nation in world 
affairs. Japan is not an ordinary nation. 
The West had the wisdom to know tins in 
1945. It should keep to that wisdom.

Iraq: When Clear Conditions Are Met, Embargoes Should Be Lifted 

P ARIS — After four years of a 
strict embargo and at a time 
whoa there were signs of progress 
toward the lifting of sanctions on 
its cal exports, Baghdad, flying in 
the face of all logic, indulged in 
an irresponsible provocation by 
moving three elite divisions south 
toward the border with Kuwait 
Why do such a thing? 

As a protest against the main- 
tenance of a tough sanctions re- 
gime prohibiting Iraq, defeated 
in 1991, from exporting its oil 
and importing the goods it 
needs? As a concession to the 
military, which has doubts about 
its leader’s determination? As a 
desperate move to divert atten- 
tion by a leader whose people are 
suffering for reasons they no 
longer understand? 

By Alain Juppe 

The writer is foreign minister of France. 

And should this strategic mis- 
take; which seems to prove right 
all those who see Saddam Hus- 
sein's Iraq as a permanent threat, 
lead us to increase Baghdad’s iso- 
lation and forever deny it any 
reintegration into the interna- 
tional community? 

France does not believe in the 
inevitability of confrontation 
and war, but, rather, seeks a 
peaceful alternative. 

With this in mind, we a gain 
insist that Iraq comply with all 
the obligations imposed on it by 
the UN Security Council resolu- 
tions. If Ba ghdad takes this path, 
the international community 

should respond to positive acts 
on its part in order to convince 
Iraq that it is clearly in its inter- 
est to choose cooperation and 
not confrontation. 

Some obligations have already 
been carried out: elimination of a 
large proportion of the nuclear, 
ballistic and chemical weapons of 
mass destruction, and satisfac- 
tory cooperation with the UN 
Special Commission- But the ball 
remains today in Iraq’s court 

Baghdad must go further and 
recognize, without ambiguity and 
haggling, Kuwait’s sovereignty 
and the inviolability of the Iraq- 
Kuwait border. It must act clearly 

and stop merely expresting laud- 
able intentions. It must prevari- 
cate no longer. It must cooperate 
fully. It has, moreover, no choice. 
Desperate moves to avert atten- 
tion win not work. 

None of the states in the re- 

t 'on which I have just visited — 
uwait, Qatar, the United Arab 
Emirates and Oman — wants 
too long a a banishment of Iraq, 
since it can contribute to the sta- 
bility of a region facing manifold 
threats. No one wants the dis- 
mantling of Iraq, or seriously ar- 
gues that Baghdad’s return to the 
cal market carries risks of eco- 
nomic destabilization. And no- 
body is adopting a Manichaean 
attitude tying normalization to 
the departure of Saddam Hus- 
sein, even though many continue 

The West Promotes a Dangerous Alliance in the Gulf 

W ASHINGTON — President Bill Clin- 
ton's firm response to Saddam Hussein 
was correct — for now. But his policy may 
create problems later. From afar, the Gulf 
region has been quiet since Iraq was trounced 
in 1991. Up dose, however, much is changing, 
and not for the better. 

The administration's policy of “dual con- 
tainment,” isolating Iran and Iraq as interna- 
tional pariahs, has had some unintended con- 
sequences. Although the economies of both 
countries have suffered, the governments 
have continued in power, and there appears 
to be no credible opposition capable of 
wrenching power from them. 

A nightmare in the Gulf may slowly be 
talcing form. By isolating both countries from 
the world economy, and making the United 
States their common enemy, Washington is 
facing them into each other’s arms. Covert 
trade and cooperation are beginning between 
these countries. For example. Iran is swap- 
ping crude oil and products with Iraq in spite 
of the United Nations embargo. 

Washington is losing control over the UN- 
Iraq process. The UN alliance that crushed 
Saddam is in tatters. It was unsustainable in 
the long term. France and Russia want to re- 
establish traditional positions of influence in 
Iraq and benefit from the immense wealth 
that would be unlocked if it returned to the oil 
markets and could rebuild its economy. 

Thus it is the United States alone that 
could end up being the protector of the Gulf 
against an unholy alliance of Iran and Iraq.

both regional powers, and guarantor for the 
great prize in the redan, Saudi Arabia. But 
things are changing there as welL 

Saudi Arabia remains the linchpin of the 
world petroleum economy and has pursued a 
sensible ml policy in recent years. Since the ml 
boom of the *70s and '80s, however, when it 
had more than SI 00 billion in foreign ex- 
change reserves, Saudi Arabia has now be- 
come a net borrower. Paying for Operation 
Desert Storm cost the country more than S55 
billion- It cleaned the Saudis out financially, 
and a society once lubricated with oil money 
now has grinding gears. 

Saudi Arabia is now less secure, internally 
and regionally, than it was. Corruption in the 
royal family continues. Religious opposition 
is growing, as well as frustration from the 
middle class over a lack of representation. 

La September, the government announced a 
roundup of roughly 100 “dissidents." The 
number was probably closer to 1,000. But 
President Clinton has not murmured a word 
about human rights in the kingdom. Also, it 
went largely unnoticed in Washington, but not 
in the Gulf, that Saudi Arabia committed its 
prestige and money to supporting the rebels in 
a failed attempt to split and weaken neighbor- 
ing Yemen in its civil war earlier this year. 

U.S. policy in the Gulf is now driven by 
Saudi Arabia The Saudis have been reliable 
friends and allies, but America should be care- 

ful not to repeal its past mistake of standing or 
faffing with a single ally, as h did with Iran. 

Finally, a global trend is occurring that 
could cause the president serious domestic 
political problems. The oil industry is operat- 
ing near production capacity, and demand for 
products is growing worldwide, particularly 
in Asia. Saudi Arabia, the largest producer, 
does not have the funds to expand its capaci- 
ty. Soon there won't be any slack left in the 
industry. There is already far less than during 
the oil shocks of the 70s. 

At some point. Bill Clinton may need Sad- 
dam Hussein's oil, estimated at more than 100 
billion barrels. But if the president draws too 
deep a line in the sand now, he may not have 
any options later. The result could be a choice 
between unwanted concessions to Saddam, a 
diplomatic fiasco, or rapidly rising gasoline 
prices, an economic and political disaster. The 
president must have flexibility. The economy 
cannot become a commercial hostage to Iraq. 

America needs a new policy in the Gulf. 
Right now, policy is either punitive or reactive. 
It must broaden its alliances in the region. New 
power blocs that could destabilize or even 
dominate the region cannot be permitted. Fi- 
nally, America’s allies must manage change 
positively, before it is forced upon them, ami 
America, with disastrous consequences.

Bosnia: Anti-Nationalist Serbs Stand Ready for Peace 

L ONDON — Inthehallof mir- 
/ rors that is Bosnian diplo- 
macy, the West — especially the 
five-country “contact group" — 
treats Radovan Karadzic and 
General Ratko Mladic as the 
sole representatives of the Bosni- 
an Serbs. In reality, they are not. 

While their regime — whose 
forces in recent days have suf- 
fered their worst defeats by the 
Bosnian Army since the war be- 
gan in April 1992 — controls 70 
percent of Bosnia and Herzego- 
vina, that occupied territory 
contains less than 40 percent of 
the prewar Serb population. 

Of the 1 J million Serbs count- 
ed in the 1991 census, an indeter- 
minate number have been killed, 
perhaps 600,000 have fled to the 
rump Yugoslavia or other coun- 
tries, and 200,000 remain in the 
zone controlled by the interna- 
tionally recognized Muslim-dom- 
inated government of Bosnia. 

All these forgotten Bosnian 
Serbs, virtually ignored by the 
Western media and international 
diplomacy, find themselves odd 
man out in the Muslim-Croat fed- 
eration created in Bosnia in 
March. Their fate, however, is 
crucial to Bosnia's status as a 
multiethnic stale. 

When the federation was creat- 
ed, about 300 Serbs, predominant- 
ly urban and well educated, assem- 
bled in Sarajevo from various 
parts of the territory controlled by 
the government They implacably 
Mr. Karadzic's Serbian 
Party and his so- 
called Bosnian Serb Republic. 
Their assembly issued a declara- 
tion supporting a multiethnic and

tons, with four dominated by 
Muslims, two by Croats and two 
mixed. (Under the Western peace 
plan that the Karadzic Serbs have 
rejected, the Muslim-led govern- 
ment together with the Croats 
would get 51 percent of Bosnia 
and the Serbs 49 percent.) 

What alarms the anti-national- 
ist Serbs is that the constitution 
of the federation eliminates their 
status as one of Bosnia's three 
constituent peoples. 

Leading the fight for a consti- 
tutional amendment that would 
make the Serbs once again a legal 
constituent people in Bosnia is 
the 33-member Serbian Citizens 
Council, which was elected at the 
assembly in March and is beaded 
by one of the two Serbian mem- 
bers of Bosnia's collective presi- 
dency, Mirko Pejanovic. 

The council's biggest night- 
mare is the prospect of a mass 
exodus of Serbs who see no future 
for themselves in the federation. 

The quandary of these anti-na- 
tionalist Serbs is that while they 
strongly oppose the principle of 
ethnic political organization, the 
federation has forced them to 
group themselves as Serbs to pro- 
tect their interests. 

In the 1990 Bosnian elections, 
many voted for such nonethnic 
partus as the former Communists 
and the Social Democrats; today, 
they continue to believe that non- 
ethnic parties provide the only 
viable future for Bosnia. 

The Bosnian government's 
main argument against including 
the Serbs in the federation is that 

ritory that Mr. Karadzic controls. 

In addition, the council chal- 
lenges the legality of eliminating 
the Serbs as a constituent people 
in the federation. It argues that 
Bosnia’s referendum on indepen- 
dence and its creation as a sover- 
eign state were both based on the 
presence of three equal peoples. 

The council main tains that by 
abandoning the grounds on 
which Bosnia was founded and 
internationally recognized, the 
Muslim-dominated regime of 
President Alija Izetbegovic jeop- 
ardizes Bosnia's sovereignty and 
territorial integrity. 

In addition to the powerful dip- 
lomatic and constitutional argu- 
ments a gains t the e liminatio n of 
the Serbs as a constituent people, 
dropping them amounts to de fac- 
to recognition of the Karadzic- 
Mladic regime as the legitimate 
representative of all Bosnian Serbs 
and supports that regime's claims 
that Sobs cannot expect just treat- 
ment from Muslims and Croats. 

None of this seems to matter 
much to the Izetbegovic faction 
of the governing Muslim Party of 
Democratic Action, which ap- 
pears motivated by a certain 
vengefulness toward all Serbs, by 
an open resentment that more 
Sobs are not in the Bosnia- Her- 
zegovina army and by a Muslim 
agenda that is inconsistent with 
the ideal of a multiethnic state. 

Since the Muslim-Croat feder- 
ation is a shotgun wedding that 
was forced by the United States 
and could easily break apart, es- 
pecially if the arms embargo 
t Bosnia is lifted and most 

pies and that it has not changed its 
position. After all. if the federation 
broke apart, what would prevent 
the regime from stripping the 
Croats of their status as a constitu- 
ent people, thereby achieving a 
wholly Muslim state? 

The Serbian Citizens Council, 
winch has established contacts 
with the underground opposition 
in the Bosnian Serb republic, 
needs outside support if it is to 
have any hope of undermining 
the republic. The council and the 
anti-nationalist Serbs it repre- 
sents could be a valuable ally in 
the struggle for the Bosnia that 
many in the West want. 

But we will never discover the 
political potential of these forgot- 
ten Bosnian Serbs as long as the 
West behaves as if Mr. Karadzic 
and General Mladic were the only 
Bosnian Serbs who mattered.

To move forward now, Iraq# 
must prove its peaceful intentions. 

It must show its willingness to co- ;

Kurdish and Shiite minorities who

and wholehearted recognition of 
Kuwait is indispensable and non-

and major development that we 
would have to take into account 
Today, France wants to rein- 
force die regional realism of the 
Gulf countries, not only by solid- 
ly standing by them, but also by 
offering Iraq a dear prospect of 
emerging from the crisis. Peace in 
the Gulf is not beyond reach. 

Beyond what is at stake at the 
regional level, the Iraqi crisis can 
prompt more general reflections 
on the United Nations’ use of 

Let us be dear about this: the 
reintegration of a state subjected 
to sanctions into the international 
community is not negotiable. It 
cannot give rise to any haggling. 
France’s message to all those re- 
sponsible for the sufferings 
caused to their peoples by embar- ! 
goes is simple: Fulfill the obliga- 
tions that the world is asking you 
to honor, and the sanctions af- • 
fecting you will be lifted. . 

But it is incumbent on the de»‘ 
mocrades to be dear about their ■ 
demands, with regard not only to ! 
Iraq but also to Libya. Serbia and 
Haiti. Having the courage of clar- 
ity is our strongest asset Ambigu- 
ity only detracts from the force of 
the message and the warnings ad- 
dressed to these countries, while 
giving the governments targeted 
by these measures pretexts for 
evading their obligations. 

France is not in favor of in- 
creasing the number of embargoes, 
still less when they are unilateral. 
The imposition of sanctions on 
stales which flout international 
law is a very grave step, which 
must remain exceptional 
It is time the international 
community established a doctrine 
that can be dearly understood by 
everybody. Imposition of sanc- 
tions must remain a prerogative 
of the Security Council. France, 
considers that the purpose of 
these measures must be precisely 
defined — to put pressure on a 
given government and make it 
change its attitude. 

So I suggest that the democra- 
cies establish the ground rules 
even more clearly. 

The adoption of a resolution 
imposing sanctions on a member 
state should, in the future, com- 
ply with three conditions: that all 
other diplomatic avenues have 
been explored without success; . 
that the Security Council resolu- 
tion, explicitly stipulates what the’ 

incriminated state has to do to get It 
the sanctions lifted; and that the ^ 
maintenance of these sanctions is ! 
subject to regular and bona fide 

France appeals to the interna- 
tional community to adopt these ; 
principles. In many parts of the' 
world, the impression is spread- 
ing that the democracies are 
twisting international law for 
their own benefit. By making the' 
effort to be clear and responsi- ; 
ble, we shall consolidate the • 
force of international law. ;

These anti-nationalist Serbs 
want a federal Bosnia organized 
on the principle of local and re- 
gional self-government — “with- 
out ethnic connotations and do- 
minations." their declaration said. 

But that is what the federation 
is all about: the Croat-controlled 
and government-controlled zones 
would be divided into eight can- 

federation and Mr. Karadzic’s re- 
public. It maintains that Only 
when his republic joins the feder- 
ation will the Serbs become a con- 
stituent people again. 

The Serbian Citizens Council 
argues that eliminating the Serbs 
as a constituent people in the fed- 
eration weakens Bosnia's daixn 
that Muslims and Croats remain 
Constituent peoples throughout 
all of Bosnia — including the ter- 

mij»ht be argued that there is no 
point in worrying about the 
Serbs’ status in it. 

The underlying issue, howev- 
er, is the kind of society the West 
wants in Bosnia — and this tran- 
scends the federation. 

If the West cares about preserv- 
ing a multiethnic and democratic 
Bosnia, it should remind die Izet- 
begovic government that it recog- 
nized a state with three equal peo-

• Much the same thing has been 
said by Rocco ButtigUone, the phi- 
losopher now head of the surviving 
remnant of the Christian Democrat- 
ic movement, the Popular Party, 

into a mainstream movement, with 
its leader now the most popular poli- 
tician in the country. 

The Italian Communist Party, for 
years immensely powerful but un- 
electable, has been uns uccessfully 
trying to accomplish such a transfor- 
mation for the last 30 years. It 
thought this year that it had succeed- 
ed and that its successor, the Party of 
the Democratic Left, would become 
part of the first government of the 


rejection of the modern world, nor 
barking back to a romanticized past. 

There is in it a strain of anti-cos- 
mopolitanism, a hostility to the secu- 
larized values of liberal sodcly and to 
a “Europe" that seems to embody 
this secularism and cosmopolitanism. 
But this is a form of conservatism 
and nationalism apparent elsewhere. 

Mr. Btmbaum told the Senate 
committee that the National Alli- 
ance “insists on a specific Italian 
identity.” That is: “It opposes a gen- 
eralized social equality and favors 
leadership by an elite certified by

^recently said that “if Berlui- 
corn fails, fini succeeds." His hope, 
of course, is that Mr. Fini, too wfO 
eventually fall, opening the way to 
Italian political reconstruction on 
reliably democratic terms. 

Mr. Fini now is some 10 points 
ahead of Mr. Berlusconi in political 
popularity polls. On Oct. 23, the cen- 
tral comritiUee of his Italian Social 
Movement voted in quasi unanimity 
to dissolve their party in January and into a larger National Alli- 
ance meant to become a proper cen- 
ter-right national party like the Con- 
servatives in Britain - or the neo- 
GauDists in France. Mr. Fini says he 
wants “a modem right, which firmly 

stead, Mr. Beriusconi and Mr. Fini 
took power, with some help from the 
Northern l eag u e, a confused and 
fading n egionalist movement. 

If Mr. Fmi’s ambitions for his new 
party could be relied upon, there 
would be no principled objection to 
it. A conservative movement commit- 
ted to liberty is a normal component 
of a modem democracy. But the re- 
cord of the MSI, along with the anti- 
Semitic (and anti- American) dis- 
course of some of Mr. Ftni’s 
associates, compels skepticism. 

Fascism has been described (by 
the Italian scholar F.milin Gentile) 
as “the coming to power of mythical 
thought.” With the reservation that 

In this respect, the National Alli- 
ance challenges what Mr. Berlusconi 
stands for, since the prime minister is 
committed to value-free market liber- 
alism and sees himself as the Italian 
counterpart to Margaret Thatcher 
and Ronald Reagan. His three pri- 
vate TV networks, devoted to popu- 
lar diversion at its cheapest, and Eu- 
rope’s biggest importer of UB. films, 
serials and game shows, have been a 
big force in subverting the old values 
of Italian society and substituting a 
consuroerisi cosmopolitanism. 

I said that “mythical thought" 
survives in at least one aspect of Mr. 
FinT s program. This is its rash and 
profoundly subversive commitment 

to territorial irreden tism — a threat 
to all that European unification has 
meant since 1945. The MSI de- 
mands Isiria for Italy. 

Istria is the region on Italy's 
northeastern border that once be- 
longed to Venice, later to Austria, 
and now is controlled by Croatia 
and Slovenia. Its juridical status has 
been unresolved since the war. An 
agreement between Rome and Bel- 
grade in 1975 was thrown into doubt 
by the collapse or Yugoslavia. 

The usual complicated ethnic and 
historical claims are made about to 
whom Istria ought to belong, with 
both sides parading their griefs, bui 
in what is supposed to be a new 
European political civilization these 
are claims that diplomacy and good- 
will are supposed to settle. 

Mr. Fini’s followers have another 
view. Mr. Fini himself, on Oct. IS at 
Trieste, demanded that Slovenians 
“kneel before Italians," victims of 
“genocide.” They must agree, he 
said, “that these lands arc Italian" 
before Italy will allow Slovenia to 
join the European Community. 

Here was the old and brutal lan- 
guage of fascism, its (rue language, a 
language that Western Europe and 
the Western world hoped to never 
hear again. To hear it from Italians, 
co-founders of the European Union, 
conveys the worst possible message 
that the nascent Second Italian Re- 
public could deliver to its neighbor*.

Noble French Neutrality 

Regarding “What Sort of Super - 
power Can Refuse Every Riskl”(Oci. 
22) by Dominique Molsi: 

■ The most surprising statement in 
this tiresome rehash of American 
foreign policy problems is the par- 
enthetical assertion that interven- 
tion is France's middle name, “part 
of its very identity.” That would 
make French foreign policy inter- 
ventionist, which it is not. 

Instead, I see a general tendency 
toward neutral positions and ap- 
peasement, and am hard-pressed to 
think of any recent examples of 
French intervention anywhere. Is 
Mr. Molsi talking about Rwanda?

About Bosnia? While these mis- 
sions of mercy are noble and mor-

neutral in vision and scope. Inter- 
vention, on the other hand, is not a 
neutral course of action. 

In neither Rwanda nor Bosnia 
was there an intent to get at the 
cause of the misery and the horror. 
That is what intervention would 
have attempted to do. 



Britain's Strong Record 

Regarding “Tke UN Effort in Bos- 
nia Was Wrong From the Start ” 
( Opinion, OcL 25); 

Anthony Lewis describes the Brit- 
ish government as “the weakest, 
most pathetic” of modem times. 

For the record, it was the govern- 
ment of Prime Minister John Major 
that had the courage to: send 20,000 
troops to support the United States 
in the 1991 Gulf War; send warships 
and 800 troops to support the Unit- 
ed States in the latest crisis in the 
Gulf; send 3,500 troops to Bosnia 

and live with the inevitable casualties 
at a time when the United States 
refused to deploy ground troops 
there; take huge political and security 
risks in the search for peace in North- 
ern Ireland, and stand alone in the 
European Union for a more rational 
and pragma tic type of superstate. 

Tne trouble with people like Mr. 
Lewis is that they patronize those 
who do not share their moral out- 
rage, which is always selective. Mr. 
Lewis would not, for example, de- 
scribe the Wilson government of the 
1960s as “weak” or “pathetic" be- 
cause it refused to send troops to 
back the United States in Vietnam. 



Tlie Hunting on Iraq 

Regarding “In No Position to 
Knock Bush ” ( Letters, Oct. 17); 

Concerning President Bill Clin- 
ton’s dispatch of troops to the Gulf 
area, remember that the matter goes 
bade to 1979 — the Iran- Iraq war — 
and is a very complicated affair. 

Briefly, American thinking back 

then was: If we destroy Saddam Hus- 
sein. Iraq breaks into three parts, 
with the Shiite southeast going to 
Iran, the oil-bearing Sunni central- 
west to Syria, and the Kurdish north 
to independence and war with Tur- 
key. Better to keep a weak Saddam in 
Baghdad. Meanwhile, the whole 
thing has been a dandy, if expensive, 
exercise in troop dispatching. It keeps 
the military services on their toes.

Immortal Latin

with interest “Latin, in the Com-

We are very pleased with the atten-

In the End, a Vote for Some of the Above 

N EW YORK — There are many 
riveting things about traveling 
around the United Stales on the 
cusp of a major election. Not the 
least or them is the ability to see 
political advertising designed chief- 
ly to appeal to the stupid and mean- 
spirited in slate after state, inter- 
changeable and unimaginative as 
the decor of the hotel rooms. 

But it is also possible to hold 
your finger to the wind and discern 
the prevailing ethos. And this year, 
in many places, that ethos has 
dearly been None or ihe Above. 

None of the Above is so seduc- 
tive for Americans because there is 
no way to pursue it politically, no 
mechanism by which one can dis- 
solve the government and start 
again from scratch. In America's 
democratic system, there is no way 
to elect a None without winding 
up with Someone. If that sounds a 
little like “Alice in Wonderland" 
— well, haven’t these midterm 
elections actually been a delightful 
mixture of the Mad Halter's tea 
party, in which everyone moves 
constantly but no one really goes 
anywhere, and the Red Queen's 
croquet match, with its clarion 
cries of “Off with their heads!” 

The inevitable parabola of the 
None of the Above phenomenon is 
most easily understood by taking a 
backward look at that most 
“Through the Looking Glass" of 
national characters, Ross Perot. 
Mr. Perot came out of nowhere in 
1992 with a throw- ihe-bums-out 
zest. While the press and other po- 
liticos ignored him, the feisty guy 
from Texas picked up a large fol- 
lowing by being the un-candidate. 
But elections play out over

lime, and over time those down- 
home Peroticisms began to seem 
as predictable as smoothie politi- 
cal rhetoric. No matter how many 
charts the man hauled out. it be- 
came clear that no one could truly 
get rid of the deficit without even 
breakin' a sweat. 

Then he crashed and burned: in 
the race, out of the race, in ihe race 
again . Weird conspiracy stories. 
Accusations that the Bush cam- 


paign had tried to ruin his daugh- 
ter’s wedding “How do you screw 
up a Texas wedding?" wrote James 
Carville, who ran the Clinton cam- 
paign. “Show up sober in a sedan? 
Leave with the woman you came 
with?” By the time the election 
neared its final week, Mr. Perot's 
biggest success was as a Halloween 
costume. Under scrutiny, there 
was simply less than met the eye. 

Sometimes, early on. less can be 
more. No one was exactly sure 
what the California Senate candi- 
date Michael Huffington stood 
for, no one could puL a finger on 
the political profile of Mill Rom- 
ney in Massachusetts, no one 
could truly get a handle on George 
Pataki in New York. What count- 
ed was not who they were but who 
they were not: the un-Dianne 
(Femstein), the un-Ted (Kenne- 
dy), the un-Mario (Cuomo). A 
Massachusetts pollster, Gerry 
Chervinsky, said not long ago. 
"Romney lo this day is defining 
himself as not Ted Kennedy.” 

There is a great deal of anger 
against what are called “career 
politicians.” which is a strange 
thing; after alt no one ever com- 
plains about using a career dentist. 
But as the Perot time line indi- 
cates. at some point cipher must 
give way to substance, and voters 
begin to turn toward the candidate 
who has actually done .something; 
say, sponsored legislation or bal- 
anced a slate budget. And the un- 
can di dates begin to come undone. 

A strong Republican might have 
blown Governor Cuomo out of the 
water this time around. But a strong 
Republican was not at all what Sen- 
ator Alfonse D'Amato wanted 
when he was playing kingmaker. 
So, polls suggest, voters are begin- 
ning to turn away from Mr. Pataki 
because there is no there there. 

Michael HuffingLon's big blowup 
was the announcement that his chil- 
dren's nanny was an illegal alien, 
and his decision lo blame same on 
his wife. But he was flagging in the 
polls before, when more and more 
voters began to realize they had no 
idea, save rich and Republican, who 
Mr. Huffington was — because 
maybe, at base, he's nothing at alL 

There's the rub: Nothing at all is 
not the same as None of the 
Above, particularly when you be- 
gin to imagine it in Washington. 
It’s not uncommon for Americans 
to become so disgusted by politics 
that they want to start from 
scratch. But ultimately they're 
forced to choose among real peo- 
ple; scratch doesn't make much of a 
senator. When a person needs con- 
stituent services. Some of the Above 
is better than the alternative.

Confusion Over Big Bang Theory 

By John Noble Wiiford 

New York Times Service 

EW YORK —Even though the 
universe has infinite ways of 
humbling them, cosmologists 
are nothing if not resilient and 
endlessly creative. They have to be, given 
their daunting task of standing on the 
shore of a small world and looking be- 
yond the harbor lights of nearby stars to 
the arching waves of clustered galaxies, 
seeking on far horizons glimpses of the 
entire cosmic history, from beginning to 
probable mid. 

For more than three decades, their 
most satisfying reconstructions of that 
history have rested squarely on the “Big 
Bang* theory. 

In the beginning, according to this 
model, mass was compressed into a state 
of infinite density, an initial singularity. 
Then there was a kind of explosion. Ev- 
erything — space itself — expanded, 
thinned out and cooled. At Erst, all was 
smooth and virtually uniform. But 
around some faint wrinkles, called densi- 
ty fluctuations, matter began clumping 
into stars, galaxies of stars and clusters 
of gravitationally bound galaxies stretch- 
ing across the sky. 

But the universe seems to keep throw- 
ing the cosmologists nasty curves, expos- 
ing the woeful limi tations of their knowl- 
edge about how in the apparently 
allotted time the cosmos evolved from 
these beginnings to a present-day struc- 
ture of such manifest inhomogeneity. 

There does not seem to have been 
enough time. And where and what is all 
the invisible mass, the so-called dark 
matter, to account for the gravity needed 
to pull together such vast galactic agglo- 

Such unsettling questions have left 
cosmologists shaking their heads and en- 
tertaining all manner of modifications in 
the details of their theories. Perhaps the 
universe underwent a brief period of ac- 
celerated expansion in its very early 
stages, the widely favored inflationary 
addendum to the Big Bang theory. 

Perhaps most of the universe is com- 
posed of invisible exotic particles — 
WIMPs, for weakly interacting massive 
particles — that supply much of the 
gravity shaping galactic structures. But 
important aspects of this hypothesis 
have been attacked recently, and these 
particles have yet to be discovered. 

I T may be a measure of the current 
turmoil that some cosmologists are 
driven to reconsider, tentatively but 
with increasing interest, an idea that 
Einstein once proposed but later reject- 
ed, saying it was “the greatest blunder of 
my life.” 

His cosmological constant, as he 
called it, was a land of antigravity force, 
a monumental fudge factor to force the 
universe he envisaged to conform with 
some implications of his own general 
theory of relativity. 

Last week theorists got more perplex- 

ing news and were talking more openly 
about the theoretical beauties of the cos- 
mological constant. Einstein, they specu- 
lated, might have been right after ail, 
though for the wrong reasons. 

Cosmologists were responding to a re- 
port of the most accurate measurement 
yet of the distance to a remote galaxy, 
made by astronomers using the Hubble 
Space Telescope. 

Calculations of the universe’s expan- 
sion rate from this and other recent ob- 
servations provide strong evidence that 
the universe may be much younger than 
scientists previously estimated. It may be 
no more than 8 billion years old, as 
compared with other calculations rang- 
ing up to 20 billion years. 

Since some stars are reliably estimated 
to be 16 billion years old, the new find- 
ings mean that the universe appears to be 
younger than some of its components, a 
most disturbing paradox for cosmolo- 
gists. Calling this “an apparent impossi- 
bility,” Dr. George H. Jacoby, an astro- 
physicist at the National Optical 
Astronomy Observatories in Tucson. Ar- 
izona, said it “will force a re-examination 
of our universe model and how stellar 
ages are measured.” 

Of course, no one is accepting the low 
age estimate as the last word, not until 
further measurements are made using 
other techniques and are extended out to 
greater distances, beyond disturbing in- 
fluences of local gravity. But no one is 
dismissing it, either. 

AIDS Drugs Fail to Curb Nerve Damage 

By Lawrence K. Altman 

New York Tunes Service 

N EW YORK — Despite wide- 
spread use of drugs to combat the 
AIDS virus, which earlier studies 
had shown to protect against in- 
fections that affect the brain and central 
nervous system, the incidence of such 
damage is increasing among those with the 
disease, a new study from a large federal 
AIDS project has found. 

The study looked at six AIDS-related 
neurological conditions among 2,641 HTV- 
infected gay men in Baltimore, Washing- 
ton, Chicago, Pittsburgh and Los Angeles 
who have participated in a long-term pro- 
ject directed by the National Institute of 
Allergy and Infectious Diseases in Bethes- 
da, Maryland. The study was conducted 
by a team of researchers headed by Dr. 
Justin S. McArthur, a neurologist at Johns 
Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore. 

The six conditions are: toxoplasmosis, a 
parasitic infection; cryptococcal meningi- 
tis, a fungal infection; primary lymphoma 
of the brain, a cancer progressive multifo- 
cal leukoencephalopathy, a viral infection: 
dementia, ana neuropathy, which can be a 
painful and crippling degeneration of 
nerves leading to numbness and weakness 
of the bands, feet or limbs. 

Of the six, dementia was the only condi- 
tion for which the rate did not increase 
during the period of the study, from 1985 
to 1992, Dr. McArthur’s team reported in 
the October issue of the journal Neurol- 
ogy. About 38 percent, or 1,001, of the 
2,641 infected participants developed 
AIDS during the study period, from 1985 
to 1992. 

The findings underscore the need for 
developing more effective drugs for AIDS 
and its neurological complications. Dr. 
McArthur said in an interview. 

The incidence rales of all neurological 
conditions were related to the severity of the 
progress of AIDS among participants. De- 
mentia rarely developed earlier than other 
AIDS-related Alnesses. But some cases of 
neuropathy and dementia were found 
among those with normal numbers of CD-4 
cells, the specialized cells in the immune 
system that HIV seems to destroy. 

By weakening the imm une system. HIV 
makes an infected individual vulnerable to 

so-called opportunistic infections, which are 
caused by microbes that are generally harm- 
less in individuals with healthy immune 
systems. Some opportunistic infections, tike 
toxoplasmosis and cryptococcal meningitis, 
affect the brain. The study found that drug 
therapy with antimic robials appeared to 
help prevent these two infections. 

Men with 200 or fewer CD4 cells who 
took antimicrobials were less likely to de- 
velop the infections than similar men who 
did not take such drugs. 

■ Greater AIDS Risk for Women 

Women are more than twice as likely as 
men to become infected with the virus that 
causes AIDS during heterosexual sex, ac- 
cording to a study by an I talian research 
group. The New York Times reported. 

The study, published in the journal Epi- 
demiology /provides further evidence that 
anatomical and physiological differences 
between the sexes make women more sus- 
ceptible than men to contracting HIV. 

The Italian study, of 524 female partners 
of HTV-infected men and 206 male part- 
ners of HIV-infected women, is the largest 
published epidemiological attempt to doc- 
ument the role of a person's sex in the 
transmission of the h uman immunodefi- 
ciency virus among heterosexuals. 

The results correspond to previous re- 
search efforts, which suggest that the risk 
of becoming infected during sex may be 
three to five times greater for women than 
it is for men, said one of the authors. Dr. 
Massimo Musicco. of the Institute of Ad- 
vanced Biomedical Technologies at the 
National Research Council in Milan.

Cholesterol May Not Harm Elderly 

By Gina Kolata 

New York Tima Service 

N EW YORK— Cholesterol levels, 
which accurately predict risk of 
heart disease in middle-aged peo- 
ple, appear to have no such pre- 
dictive value in the elderly, a new study has 

The study, by investigators at Yale Uni- 
versity, included 997 men and women 70 
years old or older who were followed from 
1988 until the end of 1992. It is one of the 
very few studies of cholesterol to focus on 
people over 65, and in fact the average age 
of the study participants was 79. 

The researchers report that although a 
third of the women and a sixth of the men 
had high cholesterol levels, these people 
did not have any more heart attacks during 
the study period than those whose choles- 
terol levels were normal or even low, nor 
were they more likely to die from heart 
disease or from any cause. 

The study was published Wednesday in 
The Journal of the American Medical As- 
sociation. “This is good news for old peo- 
ple.” said Dr. Stephen B. HuUey. the cb air- 

man of the department of epidemiology 
and biostatistics at the University of Cali- 
fornia at San Francisco- He said the study 
showed that after about the age of 70, 
“they can take it easy and relax” and stop 
worrying about cholesterol. 

Dr. Huliey said the findings were “very 
important” because there has been virtual- 
ly no information on cholesterol's effects 
in the very old. Although this study by 
itself is unlikely to be definitive, he said, its 
findings are bolstered by those of the Fra- 
mingham Heart Study, now in its 46th 
year, which also found no effect of choles- 
terol in the elderly. 

D R. Michael Criqui, an expert on 
cholesterol and heart disease at 
the University of California at 
San Diego, said the Framingham 
data showed, in fact, that cholesterol levels 
taken at the age of 50 were a better predic- 
tor of heart disease risk at 70 or 80 than 
cholesterol levels at 70 or 80. 

Dr. Harlan M. Knnnholz, the study di- 
rector, a cardiologist and epidemiologist at 
the Yale University School of Medicine, 
said many old people were alarmed by 
their cholesterol readings and were trying 

desperately to get them down, with diet or 
often with cholesterol-lowering drugs. 

But Dr. Krumholz, Dr. Huliey and oth- 
ers say that since there is no evidence that 
lowering cholesterol helps in people over 
70, doctors should not even take cholester- 
ol measurements in old but otherwise 
healthy patients. Dr. Huliey explained: 
“At least for people in their late 70s and 
beyond, we don’t know what’s a good 
cholesterol level We. actually don't know 
whether you're better off with a high one 
or a low one, so there is no point in 
measuring it” He added that there was 
especially no point in treating old people 
with cholesterol-lowering drugs and said 
he was deeply concerned because many 
people in their late 70s and older were 
taking those medications. 

At first glance, the questioning of cho- 
lesterol's effects may sound odd, heart dis- 
ease researchers said. One possible expla- 
nation, said Dr. David Kritchevsky, a 
cholesterol researcher at the Wistar Insti- 
tute in Philadelphia, is that anyone who 
reaches 80 or so with a high cholesterol 
level and no evident heart disease may be 
immu ne to cholesterol's effects. “The bul- 
let has missed you,” he said. 


Mizrahi’s All-American Swirls 

By Suzy Menkes 

fruenumeml fferuU Tribune 

N EW YORK— What 
is as American as ap- 
ple pie, gangsta rap, 
blue jeans or O. J. 
Simpson T-shirts? 

Ever since New York design- 
ers have tried to move on from 
signature sportswear, there is 
no one look that seems modem. 

Even if he is fixated on old 
movies, with Veronica Lake 
hairdos and gilt-edged glamour, 
at least Isaac Mizrahi's show- 
seemed all-American. It was 
bandbox fresh with its window- 
pane-checked jackets, its lip- 
stick-pink suits and daisy-print- 
ed dresses. It was shot with New 
York humor, as witticisms were 
projected above the runway like 
the electronic news in Times 
Square. “B usiness as unusual" 
announced a series of loudly 
checked pantsuits. A fitted, 
scoop-neck jacket was pro- 
nounced: “Sexual harassment.” 
And shapely swimsuits, with 
white vinyl beach robes lined in 
teny doth, came out to the 
words: “Esther Willi ams never 
got sand in her suiL” 

Sex and secretaries seemed to 
be on Mizrahi's mind — and 
that was the problem with a 
show that had high points, like 
the bright pink and green 
plaids, the fresh white blouses 
with long flower-patterned 
skirts and the cashmere-with- 
sequins sweater-sets. 

B UT how hard it is to 
refer to the past — 
however wittily — 
without seeming retro- 
grade. Mizrahi’s plain dresses 
with Peter Pan collars and skin- 
ny belts looked Doris Day pris- 
sy. His preferred skirt — 
straight, slim, stopping just over 
the knee with a vent at the back 
— belonged to an era before 
women took work in their stride. 

Mizrahi was on surer ground 
with sporty pantsuits and with 
the heyday-of-Hollywood looks 
that he favored before they 
came hot on the high heels of 
the glamour movement. 

Is it the glamour craze or a 
shift in American lifestyles that 


Isaac Mizrahis striped suit with knee-length skirl. 

makes so many runway clothes 
for after dark? From the vodka- 
and-orange suit that started the 
show to the champagne se- 
quined hot pants, Todd Oldham 
served up a cocktail of color and 
sparkle. The Escada team in the 
audience, checking out the 
house's new design consultant, 
found everything upbeat: chi- 
noiserie satin dresses with bright 
embroideries: slithers of python 
print, witty cowgiri-goes-to-the- 
Tirol looks wiib flowered braid 
instead of studs. 

The show was calm by Old- 
barn’s standards. Prints were of- 

ten reduced to jacket lining, or 
glitter to a skinny rhinestone belt 
on a raspberry crepe dress. Old- 
ham did not come up with many 
shapes, with the midriff-cropped 
t op, the slim-skiited suit, the 
wrap-dress and the curvy cow- 
boy shirt worn outside skinny 
pants reworked in different fab- 
rics. Prints included mouth-wa- 
tering pastries and multicolored 
Japanese parasols. Since the su- 
pennodels so obviously enjoyed 
strutting the stuff, Ol dham gave 
an ebullient show. 

Carolina Herrera’s show of 
dainty dresses and graceful 

any woman aspiring to beaNew 
York socialite. Her potential cli- 
ents, from Pat Buckley through 
Maria Trump (with trophy hus- 
band Donald), were inexplicably 
placed in row four. But even 
from there they could admire the 
womanly in-at- the- waist silhou- 
ettes, graphic pantsuits, prettv 
pastels of mint, aqua, pink, 
primrose or orange sorbet, and 
dainty decoration from scal- 
loped necklines through bows. 
It was, in its conventional way. a 
very pretty show. 

NNE Klein was one 
of tiie great American 
! house is undergo- 
ing a metamorphosis, but 
should the designer Richard 
Tyler, in his second season, 
have moved so far into city 
slick, with more shiny satin 
than seemed really necessary 
and evening dresses engulfed in 
flames of inset color? The best 
of the show came at the start, 
when classic polo shirty 
cropped to bare the midrift, 
came over narrow jeans or 
shorts in bright sorbet colors. 

Tyler’s strength is in the cut 
of his jackets, shaped with pan- 
els so that they caressed the 
body without gripping it. They 
went over dresses or slim over- 
the-knee skirts. Soft jersey 
dresses were dull but wearable. 

Marc Eiscn did Helmut 
Lang: skinny hipster pants; 
plastic dresses; mesh athletic 
shuts, and modernist feminini- 
ty in lilac, laminated chiffon or 
georgette dresses with ruffles 
and pink flowers. 

Sesame Street on children’s 
television must have been a fa- 
vorite of Christian Francis 
Roth. In paint-bright colors, 
with appliqu6d patterns like 
play-school drawings, came cir- 
cle skirts and cropped tops, 
short swingy dresses and even a 
grass-green coat with its belt 
made from a jump rope. A sim- 
ple suit with a random scatter- 
ing of numbers was cute. But 
tor grown women in American 
today, it seemed as appropriate 
as watching childrens TV.

At the center of the action 
memo written by Richard I 1 
on in February 1992 that 
dared in no uncertain tei 
that unless the Bush admi 
tration spearheaded a b 
drive to provide extensive ait 
Russia, we were at risk of “i 
ing” this most important of 
former Soviet Republics. In 
beginning the memo was s 
only to 50 of the best i 
brightest — such influential 
binaries as Henry Kissin] 

Zbigniew Bizezinski, Hugh Si- 
dey and Araaud de Borchgrave. 
But, Kalb writes, exclusive dis- 
tribution notwithstanding, 
“Nixon wanted the memo to 
leak; he just didn’t want to be 
fingered as the one who did the 
leaking.” His wish was shortly 
granted. The press, his ancient 
nemesis, did the deed, and with- 
in days Nixon’s ideas on what 
should be done about Russia 
were the coin of the realm. 

Kalb assumes that well never

probably right. Once again we 
are seized by the man, by his 
crafty and, until his death any- 
way. successful reconstruction 
of himself, and by his capacity 
to snare others into his web. 
Take George Bush, for exam-

minding his business when 
bam! — out of nowhere, he was 
ambushed by his former boss. 
Nixon being Nixon was not 
content to stick to the subject — 
aid to Russia that was more 
than “too little and too late.” 
He went on to imply that if 
Bush failed to follow his advice 
and if as a consequence Boris 
Yeltsin fell and either anarchy 
or despotism ensued. Bush 
would be blamed. As Kalb sum- 
marizes the memo, “Right or 
wrong, he would be seen as the 
president who lost’ Russia.” 

Despite the obvious genera- 
tional and ideological differ- 
ences between them, BQl Gin- 
ton was no more able than his 
predecessor to escape Nixon’s 

orbit. Dealt a foreign policy 
hand that under optimum cir- 
cumstances was un famili ar and 
unsteady himself on Russian 
terrain. Gin ton soon became a 
ready customer of Nixon’s 
wares. Here Kalb permits him- 
self a harsh judgment. Writing 
about the Nixon-Ginton con- 
nection, Kalb notes dryly that 
in general, the White House 
“seemed utterly tone deaf to the 
inappropriateness of a Demo- 
cratic president treating Nixon 
as a revered foreign policy ad- 
viser.” The fact that Nixon had 
a greater impact on Democrat 
Bin Ginton than on Republi- 
can George Bush is labeled “the 
ultimate irony.” 

I would nominate a different 
candidate for this dubious dis- 
tinction: the press as primary 
vehicle of Nixon’s rehabilita- 
tion. As Kalb’s chronicle makes 
meticulously clear, without 
willing agents ranging from 
Daniel Schorr to William Sa- 
fhe. and without ready vehicles 
such as The New York Times 
and CT4N (which carried his 

subsequent speech on the sub- 
ject "live”). Nixon would have 
lacked a medium to send his 
message. The former president 
had left to him neither power 
nor position. To carry his voice 
he nad to rely mostly on the 
kindness of strangers. 

What lingers longest is the 
compelling nature of the debate 
itself. We are. after all, familiar 
with the many resurrections of 
Richard Nixon, and we general- 
ly understand the power of the 
press full well. What we still 
have failed to master complete- 
ly is the issue of how to behave 
as a nation at the international 
level. For ah the flaws in his 
argument, and for all the self- 
serving reasons he had for pre- 
senting it in the first place, Nix- 
on's memo did shove this 
chronic question front and cen-

T HE diagramed deal is a 
constructed one, and the 
reader may wish to consider 
what is interesting about it be- 
fore reading on. it was created 
many years ago by Waldemar 
von Zedlwitz, an aristocrat 
among bridge players who died 
in Hawaii 10 years ago. 

In bridge, he was brilliant 
both as a player and an admin- 
istrator. His closest friend and 
colleague was Albert Morehead 
and they worked together on 
book projects. One day, a 
young associate, Joel Gaines, a 
games inventor who has 
changed his name to Prince Joti 
kansil, made up a deal in which 
South could make three no- 
trump against any defense 
holding nine high-card points 
in the combined North-South 

Morehead fairly quickly went 
one better, with seven points in 
the North-South hands. And af- 
ter an hour of effort, von 
Zedtwitz came up with the dia- 
gramed deal with points, prob- 
ably the ultimate. The biading 

is fictional but makes a smid- 
gen of sense if one accepts that 
South is operating in the hope 
of landing in a major suit, and V* 
that an obtuse North fails to 
appreciate taht the final redou- 
ble is an S.O.S. 

Conceive the frustration of 
the i m ag in ary East-West, on 
finding that 34 high-card points 
is not enough to beat three no- 
redoubled. In fact, a dia- 
Iead permits an over-

Small countries live off 
their reputations, and Latvia 
is living quite well off its 
reputation at the moment. 
The “Switzerland of the 
Eastern Baltic" is how three 
of Western Europe's leading 
dailies labeled the country in 
recent articles, a reference to 
both the country's perceived 
attributes and its current way 
of earning a national Jiving. 

Like Switzerland, Latvia 
has a reputation that stems 
from the world's apprecia- 
tion of its finances and fi- 
nancial sector. The Latvian 

f ovemment has shown a 
wiss-like abhorrence for 
unbalanced budgets, trade 
deficits and debt loads. 
Latvia has a rock-hard cur- 
rency, the lat, whose 
strength comes from the re- 
spect accorded to the Lat- 
vian banking system’s effi- 
ciency, probity and reliabili- 
ty. Also like that of Switzer- 
land, Latvia’s financial sec- 
tor is thriving on inflows of 
funds seeking a safe haven 
from political and economic 

Functional and dynamic 
In a description worthy of 
Switzerland. Latvia is 
viewed as “a place that 
works." In the words of a 
Riga-based German chemi- 
cal executive, it is a place 
“where officials are respon- 
sible and their actions ac- 
countable. where it is possi- 
ble to process trade docu- 
ments. make a telephone call 
and get a supplier on short 

The country also features 
a Swiss-like ethnic makeup, 
with ethnic Latvians ac- 
counting for 52 percent of 
the population, and Russians 

two-thirds of the rest. Once 
riven by segregation and 
mistrust, but now aided by 
increasingly conciliatory 
governmental policies, the 
country’s ethnic groups are 
making steady progress to- 
ward a Switzerland-like plu- 

Successful survival 
Although edifying, such 
comparisons don’t even be- 
gin 1 to encompass the .vast- 
accomplishments of the Lat- 
vian government over the 
last two short years,” says 
Professor Manfred Meier- 
Preschany, who has been 
serving as the government’s 
chief economic adviser since 
July 1993. “Nor do they im- 
ply the long, hard work that 
still lies ahead. Before any- 
one even thought of making 
ringing comparisons to 
Switzerland or Singapore, 
Latvia was confronting Iife- 
or-dearb questions about na- 
tional economic survival. 
That has been Latvia's ini- 
tial, most important accom- 
plishment: surviving - and 
surviving well - the most 
wrenching readjustment 

Until independence, 
Latvia was an integral part 
of the Soviet Union’s eco- 
nomic and energy supply 
systems. As late os 1 990, 
transactions with the dis- 
solving Soviet Union direct- 
ly accounted for half of 
Latvia’s gross domestic 
product and 95 percent of its 
total trade. 

Transit transactions 
Today, trade with the Soviet 
successor states amounts to 
around 40 percent of the 
country’s total. Since much 

of that stems from transit 
transactions, Latvia's “net 
exposure” to the CIS is said 
to be about 10 percent of 
GDP. By tapping new 
sources of supply and recon- 
figuring existing networks, 
“Latvia is no longer energy- 
dependent on Russia,” says 
Adrians Davis, chief execu- 
tive officer of the country's 
natural . gas authority. A sign 
of change: environmentally 
friendly natural gas now ac- 
counts for 40 percent of the 
nation’s energy budget This 
shift is one factor behind the 
noticeable improvement in 
the country’s ambient envi- 
ronment, seriously strained 
undo- the Soviet system. 

Back In the black 
In fact, as Mr. Meier- 
Preschany points out, Latvia 
has been doing more than 
merely surviving. After the 
first two post-independence 
years' plunges, the country’s 
economy made a return to 
the growth columns in mid- 
1994. with forecasts now 
ranging between i percent 
and 4 percent. During this 
time, the country’s private 
sector has been undergoing a 
major expansion. Since 
1991, some 60.000 compa- 
nies have been founded, of 
which an impressive 4,000 
are either partially or totally 
owned by outside investors 
from 80 countries. Net pur- 

risen 1 ? J*p^Mt < ov&f the 
past three years, suggesting 
the source of the obvious 
prosperity to be seen in Riga 
and in other major cities: a 
“shadow economy” of con- 
siderable size. 

“Survival has. to a great 
extent, come from the 

niche,” says Mr. Meier- 
Preschany. “Lasting, deeply 
based prosperity is gping to 
come from employing the 
niche's resources, impetus 
and contacts to restructure 
tire ‘legacy’ economy. I’ve 
seen a lot of business talent, 
patient industrioosness and 
hard-beaded common sense 
in this country, and it’s go- 
ing to take all of those quali- 
. ties to redo the legacy econ- 
omy." - .. 

Latvia’s niche is handling 
transit trade between the 
mam mass of the CIS coun- 
tries and the outside world, 
and providing related stor- 
age, finishing, assembly and 
financial services. This 
niche is large. Transit trade 
accounts for some 90 per- 
cent of the cargo transported 
through (he country’s three 
largest ports: Ventsprls, Riga 
and Liepaja. The niche is 
also a good provider for 
Latvia, keeping 1993’s bal- 
ances of trade, payments and 
services ail in the black.

Burn in 1951, Maris 
Gaills earned a degree In 
mechanical engineering in 
1978. After holding a num- 
ber of industrial posts, Mr. 
Gaills entered politics In 
1990, serv ing as director of 
the international economic 
relations department or 
the Latvian government. 
Over the next four years, 
he held a variety of min- 
istry-level governmental 
positions before becoming 
prime minister on Septem- 
ber 15, 1994. 

Although they share ties of 
geography and history, the 
three Baltic countries have 
not been noticeably close or 
productive in the post-inde- 
pendence phase. What is the 
current situation ? 

Over the last three years, 
all three Baltic countries 
were often very occupied 
with coming to grips with 
their own national situations, 
and with defining and man- 
aging their relationships 
with Russia and other major 

countries and groupings. As 
a result, our countries hadn’t 
yet addressed themselves to 
tilling in the practical details 
of the extensive, far-reach- 
ing lies mapped out in vari- 
ous agreements. Since June 
13th and the founding of the 
Baltic Council of Ministers, 
we've been doing just that - 
focusing on such matters as 
further reducing border 
crossing times, devising 
common approaches to 
combating crime and har- 
monizing business-related 
laws and legislation. The 
first proposals are now being 
implemented, and they are 
already making a noticeable 
difference in our citizens' 
daily lives. 

The integration of its vari- 
ous ethnic groups has been 
described as Latvia 's 
biggest challenge. Latvians 
account for 52 percent of 
your country's population : 

' two-thirds of the rest are 
Russians. Reports af prob- 
lems with strict require- 

ments for citizenship, includ- 
ing fluency in Latvian, have 
been appearing in the inter- 
national press. Has progress 
been made in this area? 

To describe this situation 
in terms of ethnic groups is 
misleading. Allegiances and 
perceptions of interest are 
the applicable criteria. Inde- 
pendence came unexpected- 
ly and rapidly to many peo- 
ple resident in Latvia Many 
of our country's non-Lat- 
vians had never planned to 
be part of an independent 
Latvia, nor to be here longer 
than a few yean. They were 
thus left stranded here by 
events. And many of these 
people would like to return 
to Belarus or Ukraine or 
Russia, but are facing ad- 
ministrative and financial 
hurdles to their doing so. 
We're working on eliminat- 
ing these barriers on a bilat- 
eral basis. 

Many non-Latvians ac- 
tively demonstrated their al- 
legiance to Latvia during our 

country's drive for indepen- 
dence. Others have made it 
quite clear that they plan on 
making a life in Latvia for 
themselves and for their 
children, for very practical 
reasons. Our standard of Iiv- 

seeing encouraging signs of 
integration from these 
groups. For instance, a 
growing number of Russian 
families are sending rheir 
children to Latvian- language 
schools. You have to re- 

ing is relatively high; life 
here is attractive. For these 
people, and considering their 
depth of interest and length 
of rime-frame, 10 years of 
residency and a passable 
command of their new coun- 
try's language do not repre- 
sent unreasonable or insur- 
mountable obstacles. We are 

member one thing: Our citi- 
zenship requirements were 
formulated to clarify an un- 
clear, rapidly changing situ- 
ation, a situation that is now 
achieving a new normalcy. 
A very practicable modus 
vivendi is now emerging 
among Latvia's various eth- 
nic groups. 

Signs of a new prosperity 
are very evident in Latvia, 
even to the casual observer. 
Yet there are also reports of 
endemic poverty. Is Latvia 
achieving sustainable, 
broad-scale economic 
progress, or is this prosperi- 
ty restricted to a few “pock- 
ets of plenty”? 

Certain economic sectors 
were in our power to 
change, and in these areas 
we have acted decisively 
and quickly. The prosperity 
you’re seeing has ensued 
from these changes. Al- 
though the move was widely 
criticized at the time, we set 
up our new currency, the lat, 
and made it the hardest one 
in the region and currently 
one of the hardest in Europe. 
Along with a freely convert- 
ible currency, we also enact- 
ed free trade, free banking 
and See investment policies. 
The result is that Latvia has 
now become the eastern 
Baltic’s financial and trad- 
ing center. 

The Soviet legacy 
The legacy economy is the 
patchwork of aging industri- 
al conglomerates built by the 
Soviets, and the local mono- 
cultures existing around 
them, often the sole sources 
of employment for commu- 
nities. 'There’s another 
legacy from the past: the 
great stock of highly quali- 
fied, entrepreneurially mind- 
ed people working at the 
conglomerates,” points out 
Jams Zvanitajs. Latvia's 
economics minister. “Many 
green shoots are springing 
up in local communities. 
Our job is to interlink the 
niche and the legacy econo- 
my, to put our international 

Like Hong Kong in the 
old days, we’re handling a 
lot of the transit traffic be- 
tween the CIS countries sid 
the outside world, from as 
far away as Chile and China. 
As a result, our freight-pro- 
cessing sector is growing 
rapidly, along with trade-re- 
lated finishing an d manufac- 

On a long-term basis, we 
can’t grow without a high- 
achieving industrial sector. 
Plans of our food processing 
and consumer goods indus- 
tries have already managed 
the turnaround, as has our 
construction sector. Other 
manufacturing operations, 
often funded by foreign in- 
vestment, have started up, 
causing a strong, overall rise 
in manufacturing turnover. 
But (be restructuring of our 
heavy industry, which was 
interlinked with the Soviet 
system, and particularly to 
its military-industrial com- 
plex, is proving a large job, 
requiring large amounts of 

business community on-line 
with our local communi- 

In fact, according to the 
latest statistics, that process 
has already started. Manu- 
facturing output is currently 
up 10 percent over the previ- 
ous year, led by a fast-grow- 
ing, successfully exporting 
food-processing industry. 
“Real” (included urtreportn' 
ed) unemployment seems to 
have peaked at 8 percent: 
Announcements ofmaj^b*-* 
vestments in manufacturing 
companies have become,- 
standard fare in local news- 
papers. The upcoming wave 
of privatization is expected 
to put the restructuring of the 
legacy economy into full 

The new vibrancy 
Still, economic statistics tell 
only part of the story of 
Latvia's transformation, ac- 
cording to Vita Anda Terau- 
da, one of the many Latvian- 
Americans taking parr hi re- 
building the country. A 
holder of dual citizenship, 
Ms. Terauda is the country’s 
minister of reform. 

“For most Latvians, the 
transformation has been ex- 
perienced as a prolusion of 
colors, possibilities, issues 
and, of course, concerns and 
worries," says Ms. Terauda. 
“Most of all, it’s been per- 
ceived as a fast-paced flurry 
of events. Sometimes I have 
to simply stop and ask my- 
self what happened to the 
Riga of bread tines and drab 
buddings and cold, uncom- 
fortable rooms. That city has 
so little in common with to- 
day’s vibrant, well-function- 
ing Riga.”

: NEW YORK — VS. stocks 
Ridded Wednesday frt r a third 
day as a Federal Reserve effort 
10 bolster the dollar failed to 
offset concern about an immi- 
nent increase in interest rates. 

Mounting evidence of rising 
inflation led some investors to 
believe the Fed will raise rates 
when its policy-making com- 
mittee meets Nov. 15. That was 
enough to erase gains made by 

nervousness about Treasury re- 
financings and by the U.S. un- 

employment report scheduled 
for release on Friday. 

U.S. Stock* 

stocks after the central bank 
supported the U.S. currency by 
buying dollars and selling yen 
and Deutsche marks. 

The Dow Jones industrial av- 
erage sagged 26.24 points, to 
3,837.13, after being higher 
much of the day. The index has 
lost 93.53 points over the last 
three days. 

The Standard & Poor's 500 
index fell 1.91 to 466.51 as 
chemical producers, media 
companies and electrical equip- 
ment manufacturers slumped. 
The Nasdaq Combined Com- 
posite Index closed 0.37 lower 
at 771.82. 

Trading was active, with 
33139 million shares changing 
hands on the New York Stock 

Exchange, up from 314.95 mil- 
lion Tuesday. About four 

lion Tuesday. About four 
stocks fell for every three that 
rose on the Big Board 

Analysts said the U.S. sLock 
market’s losses also reflected 
the release of the Federal Re- 
serve Board's so-called Tan 
Book on the economy, which 
said retail price pressures were 
building as an expanding econ- 
omy pushed raw material costs 

The U.S. bond market, which 
slumped Tuesday, weakened 
further Wednesday as the 30- 
year benchmark U.S. Treasury 
bond’s yield rose to 8.09 per- 
cent from 8.06 percent. The 
market was undermined not 
only by the Tan Book but by 

for release on Friday. 

Hugh Johnson, chief invest- 
ment officer at First Albany 
Corp., said the Tan Book made 
it almost certain the Fed would 
raise rates at the Nov. 15 meet- 
ing of its policy-setting Federal 
Open Market Committee. 

“The report essentially con- 
firms what we already knew or 
strongly suspected, and that is 
that we are seeing economic ac- 
tivity expand across the board," 
he said. “The bottom line is that 
it gives the Fed the ammunition 
to raise rates at the Nov. 15 
meeting. If there's such a thing 
as a sure bet on Wall Street, this 
is it.” 

Looking ahead, analysis said 
investors were waiting for the 
Friday release of the Labor De- 
partment report on U.S. em- 
ployment for more concrete 
signs of what the Fed might do 
at its policy meeting. 

Also on Wednesday, the 
Commerce Department report- 
ed that factory orders declined 
0.2 percenL in September, while 
orders for durable goods rose a 
krger-th an -expected 0.4 per- 
cent last month. 

OfficeMax Inc was the most 
active U.S. issue. Its initial pub- 
lic offering of 33 million shares 
rose 5% to 24%. The company 
operates more than 300 stores 
selling discount office products. 

Biogeo rose 1 to 41 after Kid- 
der and several other houses up- 
graded the stock's rating, citing 
the stock's low price. 

Intel rose rose 1% to 62ft af-

Fed Says Inflation Signs Are limited ; c ; 

WASHINGTON (Combined Dispatches) — U.S. producer 
prices are continuing to rise, leading to increased reports of. 
manufacturers passing along those higher costs in their selling 

prices, the Federal Reserve said Wednesday.. 

But most Fed districts are reporting no change m retail prices, 
although “pressure is building in some districts,” the Fed said in 
its so-called Tan Book. The report said the nation was experienc- 
ing & broad expansion with Limited signs of inflation. 

Separately, the Commerce Department said that factory orders 
declined 02 percent in September, while the index of leading 
indicators — a gauge of economic growth oyer the next half year 
— held steady. (AP.- Bloombfrg Knight-Ridder)

NEW YORK (Bloomberg) — US West Inc„ a regional tele- 
phone company, is among a number of suitors discussing buying 
or acquiring a stake in Continental Cablevision IntL, a closely held

banker said.

CompUSA Posts First Quarter Loss 

MUSIC: Smaller Labels See Opportunity for Resurgence as Major Record Companies Play Musical Chairs 

Continued from Page II 
since then Mr. Morgado and 
Mr. Morris have changed the 
leadership at all three of the 
company’s labels: Warner 
Brothers, Elektra and Atlantic. 

Sylvia Rhone, former head of 
Atlantic's East West label was 
named chief of Elektra Enter- 
tainment this summer. 

Danny Goldberg, the head of 
Atlantic Records, is expected to 
be named chairman of Warner 
Brothers. Val Azzoli. the top 

marketing executive at Atlantic, 
is expected to move into the lop 
spot there. 

Last week, as an open revolt 
seemed to sweep Warner Mu- 
sic, several people were fired at 
Elektra. Heads may soon roll at 
Warner Brothers*, and such 
popular artists as the rock 
group R.E.M. have threatened 
to leave the Warner Music fold. 

Industry analysts say all this 
reflects badly on Mr. Morgado 
and his boss, the chairman of 

Time Warner, Gerald M. Levin. 
And some industry executives 
say they expect Mr. Morgado to 
leave, m the wake of the an- 
nouncement by Time Warner’s 
board Monday that it had 
named an outside director, 
Richard D. Parsons, to the new 
position of president of Time 
Warner — a job Mr. Morgado 
was thought to covet 
Despite the chaos, much of 
the recording industry remains 
a money machine. Music gener- 

ates more cash than either pub- 
lishing or movies and requires 
less investment than cable tele- 
vision. And while music is more 
tangible than "interactive me- 
dia," it is just as hip. 

Warner Music, for example, 
which had revenue of $3.3 bil- 
lion last year, is on its way ton 
banner year in profits with a 
relatively minimal capital in- 
vestment said John Reidy. an 
analyst for Smith Barney. 
“They may have put in $50 mil- 

lion to generate $700 million," 
he said. 

Warner Music is unlikely to 
see any near-term erosion in its 
position as the industry’s lead- 
er, with a market shore of nearly 
22 percent — well ahead of the 
second-biggest record distribu- 
tor, Sony Music. . . 

Though the in-fighting has 
not been as public, other big 
recording companies have seen 
similar discord, as corporate ex- 
ecutives, who see music as a 

cash cow, have riled the record- 
ing people, who say those who 
watch the bottom line stifle cre- 

“Four of the six heads of ma- 
jor record companies have little 
or no background in the busi- 
ness," said one executive, citing 
Mr. Morgado at. Warner Music, 
Michael Domemann at BMG, 
James Fifield at EMI, and Mi- 
chael Schulhof at Sony. "If you 
didn't grow up in the business, 
you don't get the gestalt.” 

DALLAS (AP) — CompUSA Inc. said Wednesday its loss 
widened in the first quarter of its financial year despite a 34 
percent increase in sales. 

During the quarter ended SepL 24, CompUSA posted a loss of 
$3.15 million on sales of $585.7 million. The company recorded a 
$986,000 loss on sales of $436.6 milli on a year ago. CompUSA is 
the largest U.S. computer retailer. 

For the Record 

First Data Corp-, the world's largest processor of credit-card 1 
transactions for banks, agreed to buy Card Establishment Services ‘ 
Inc. for $500 million in stock and will assume about $180 million 
of its debt. '( Bloomberg ) ' 

Rockwell International Corp.. the aerospace, automotive and 
electronics company, said its fourth-quarter profit rose 10 percent 
to $165 million because of increased sales from commercial and 
international markets. (Knlght-Ridder, Bloomberg)

-PARK — French unemploy- 
ment rose to: a record 335 mil- 
lion, or 12.7 percent of the work 
force, in September as econom- 
ic recovery brought thousands 
of job-seekeis into the labor 
market, official figures released 
Wednesday showed. 

Bat economists said the poor 
Bgn res disg uised an improving 
underlying trend and that un- 
employment would be on a 
downward path ahead of the 
presidential election next 

“It is a bit disappointing for 

the government. But the labor 
market situation does look as if 
it is getting better," Esther Bar- 
oudy, an economist at Credit 
Lyonnais, said. 

The Labor Minis try said the 
number of unemployed rose 

13.900 in September, taking the

Output Stabilises 
In West Germany

BONN — West German in-

The ministry said output fell

September from August but

the results. 

Labor Minister Michel Gi-

was due to an eight-year high in 
the number of first-time job- 
seekers. This offset jobs created 
by economic recovery. 

Despite efforts to adjust for 
seasonal effects, France tradi- 
tionally shows a rise in unem- 
ployment in September and Oc-

left school join the labor force. 

The ministry also said the rise 
in unemployment principally af-

women who had been discour-

poor economic environment 
were returning to the work force.

Sweden’s New Budget 
Calls lor Higher Taxes 

Comptlcd by Ch& Staff Fran Dispatches 

STOCKHOLM — Sweden's 
new government presented a 
budget Wednesday calling for 
higher taxes and spending cuts 
that would cut 57.1 billion kro- 
nor ($8 billion) from the budget 
deficit over the next four years. 

The plan presented by Fi- 
nance Minister Goeran Perssoo 
calls for 31.6 billion kronor in 
tax increases and 253 billion 
kronor in spending cuts. 

For the 1995 budget year, 
which runs from July 1, 1995, 
through Dec. 31, 1996, Mr. Pers- 
son called for 12.1 bflBon kronor 
in spending cuts and 17.7 billion 
kronor in additional taxes. 

Mr. Persson said the budget 
would be implemented in two 
stages, with the higher taxes 
starting Jan. 1 and spending 
cuts starting July 1. 

.Financial markets showed 
little reaction to the plan, with 
the benchmark Affaersvaerlden 

index in Stockholm slipping 0.5 
percent, to 1.868.40 points. 

Peter Granqvist, an econo- 
mist with Swedbank, said the 
proposal was slightly better 
than expected but that interest 
rates had not come down, be- 
cause “there are stQl a lot of 
question marks." 

The yield on the benchmark

bond rose to 1 1.20 percent from 
1 1.05 percent Tuesday.

Marks & Spencer 
Focuses on Spain 
In Expansion Bid 

Bloomberg Businas M-ws 

LONDON — Spanish 
women still fly to London to 
do their Christmas shop- 
ping, but Marks & Spencer 
underwear no longer figures 
prominently in their shop- 
ping list: They can find it in 

Marks & Spencer PLC, the 
British retailer known for 
supplying former Prime Min- 
ister Margaret Thatcher with 
underwear, is expanding its 
Spanish operations in Ma- 
drid and in Valencia. 

Marks & Spencer’s main 
Madrid store is on the Calle 
Serrano, the Spanish equiva- 
lent of New York's Fifth Av- 
enue. Its entire fourth floor 
is dedicated to underwear, 
which represents 24 percent 
of Marks & Spencer’s total 
clothing sales. 

Four and a half years ago, 
Marks & Spencer did not 
even have a store in Spain. 
Now it has four stores and is 
opening the fifth in Valencia 
this month. 

“Spain is expanding faster 
than other countries starting 
from a lower base,” said 
Robert Hayman. head of 
corporate affairs for Marks 
& Spencer Europe. 

Marks & Spencer is one of 
the largest retailers in Brit- 
ain, selling maml y clothes 
and food. It has 612 stores 
worldwide, some under dif- 
ferent names, such as 
Brooks Brothers. The com- 
pany employs 62,080 people. 

Spain is a relatively bright 
spot in a far from rosy Euro- 
pean retailing scene. The 
company does not break 
down bow much each Euro- 
pean country contributes to 
sales or earnings, but as a 
ercentage of worldwide 

rope's contribution fell to 
3.7 percent in the financial 
year to March 31 from 3.9 
percent in the previous year. 

“Europe has been in re- 
cession. and Spain has cer- 
tainly been affected,” Mr. 
Hayman said. “The U.K. 
had a very good year, as it 
was pulling out of recession 

Richard Greenbury. 
chairman of Marks & Spen- 
cer, said in July that the 
company would invest more 
than £1 billion ($1.6 billion) 
over three years in expan- 
sion in Britain and abroad. 

Mr. Hayman said the 
company was actively seek- 
ing expansion in Spam, with 
negotiations under way to 
buy sites in Bilbao and Zara- 
goza, among others.

lnglfes and Galenas Precia- 
dos, as well as with some of 
the smaller clothing shops 
on Calle Senano. 

El Corte Inglfis is the larg- 
est retailer in Spain, and 
many of its stores are much 
bigger than those of Marks 
& Spencer. 

But the five-floor Marks 
& Spencer store on Serrano 
competes by using a mixture 
of what it is known for in 
Britain — good value at rea-

Russia Vows 
Steps to 
Back Ruble 


MOSCOW — Russia's Secu- 
rity Council said Wednesday 
that the Oct. II “Black Tues- 
day” plunge in the ruble had 
threatened market reforms, and 
it vowed to take urgent mea- 
sures to stabilize the currency. 

A statement by President Bo- 
ris N. Yeltsin’s press service 
said the council had discussed a 
report by a commission investi- 
gating the crisis. 

It said the ruble’s drop of 
more than 20 percent against 
the dollar had been a threat to 
national security. The dollar 
rose dose to 4,000 rubles but 
has since fallen back to 3,093 

According to the statement, 
the currency’s collapse under- 
mined confidence in the fledg- 

of long-term capital investment 
and raised prices. 

“The Security Council has 
ordered the government to take 
quick and concrete steps to reg- 
ulate the ruble rate and ex- 
change operations,” it said, 
without giving details of specif- 
ic measures. 

“A blow has been dealL to the 
reform course, social stability,

Swiss Bank Corp. 
Sees Lower Net 


ZURICH — Swiss Bank 
Corp., the last of the country’s 
big three banks to report thud- 
quarter results, said Wednesday 
it expected its net profit this 
year to fall significantly from 
the record level of 1993. 

Analysts were disappointed 
and said an expected recovery 
in the banking sector in the sec- 
ond half of the year had not 
materialized. They forecast a 
drop in profit of 15 percent to 
30 percent for the major Swiss 

Swiss Bank said operating 
profit in the first nine months 
was below year-earlier levels, 
but it gave no figures. It said 
operating results in the fourth 
quarter would depend greatly 
on international developments.

NEW DELHI — According to its promot- 
ers, India's electronic National Slock Ex- 
change will have nearly everything going for it 
when it starts up Thursday: speed, transpar- 
ency and lower cost for investors. 

Officials of the Bombay-based exchange 
are counting on its image of computerized 
efficiency to lure investors from the Bombay 
Stock Exchange, which over the years has 
built a reputation for inefficiency and price 

“We hope to give tremendous competition 
to the Bombay Slock Exchange,” said Ravi 
Narain, the national exchange's deputy man- 
aging director. 

The National Stock Exchange was created 
two years ago by the Securities and Exchange 
Board, India's market regulator, partly in 
despair over loose trading practices on the 
Bombay exchange. 

A group of financial institutions and banks 
put up 250 million rupees (S8 million) in 
initial capital, with working capital to come 
from membership and trading fees. 

Initially, 200 companies’ shares will be 
traded, representing about 80 percent of the 
Bombay exchange's market capitalization of 
about $120 billion. The new exchange plans 
to trade 500 stocks within six months. 

Brokers said it would be some time before 
the new exchange seriously challenged Bom- 
bay's position as the premier Indian stock 
exchange. But they said the NSE had several 
advantages over its rival. 

On the NSE, a central computer in Bombay 
will display prices on a screen so that inves- 
tors will know instantly the price at which 
they have bought or sol'd. 

- Investors’ principal complaint about the 
Bombay exchange is that buy and sell quotes 
are not displayed for all traders to see. This, 
investors say, gives market-makers an oppor- 
tunity to manipulate prices. 

“On the NSE, brokers will not have to 
prove their honesty, because the system is 
transparent,” said Srinivos Subramanian, 
bead of the brokerage firm HG Asia in India. 

Gul Tckchandam, a fund manag er with 
Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services, 
said investors would also find it cheaper to 
trade on NSE than on the Bombay exchange 

'Brokers will not have to 
prove their honesty, because 
the system is transparent.’ 

Srinivas Subramanian, head of the 
J3G Asia brokerage firm in India 

because the electronic exchange will have no 
market-makers taking a cut of trading profits. 

The NSE also will be more accessible than 
the Bombay exchange, slaying open five 
hours a day, compared with two to 2 % hours 
for Bombay. 

Nevertheless, the new exchange may need 
to resolve a few start-up problems before it 
can fulfill its promise. 

First, Indian law requires the settlement of 
stock trades by the physical delivery of securi- 
ties. Until a new depository law passes the 
Indian Parliament — perhaps by the middle 
of next year — the ultramodern NSE, like its 
more old-fashioned competitors, will have to 
handle huge mounds of paper certificates. 

How huge? A typical two-week trading 
period on the Bombay exchange can generate 
150,000 trades and 60 million pieces of paper, 
according to Bhagirath Merchant, president 
of the exchange. The NSE with its electronic 
system and longer hours, could generate three 
tunes that amount

Suharto Calls for Inflation Below 10% 

JAKARTA — _ President Suharto on 
Wednesday ordered government ministers 
to hdp curb inflation, saying it should be 
kept below W percent for the calendar year. 

Economists have warned that cement 
and rice prices, and a 7.8 percent increase 
in electricity rates, were pushing inflation 
into double d igi ts. Year-on-year figures 
released Wednesday showed the inflation 
rate rising to 931 percent from Septem- 
ber’s 8.89 permit 

“Inflation in October is stOl high, and 
there are only two months before the end 
of calendar 1994,” Mr. Suharto was quoted 
j>y Information Minister Hannoko as say- 
ing. “AH minis ters most pay attention and 

coordinate among themselves to keep in- 
flation below 10 perc en t in 1994.” 

Inflation is a sensitive issue with impli- 
cations for stability in Indonesia, where 
one-sixth of the 188 million people live 
below the official poverty line. 

Indonesia’s consumer price index rose 
0.89 percent in October, up from rises of 
033 percent in September and 039 per- 
cent m October (993, Mr. Hannoko said. 
He blamed increased prices of housing, 
food, textile and services for the rise. 

Inflation is based on the consumer price 
index, calculated from prices of around 
200 commodities in 27 dries. 

Finance Minister Marie Muhammad 
said that after the meeting with Mr. Su- 
harto. he was convinced that inflation in 
1994 would be below 10 percent.

Without Hockey, a Long Winter of Discontent Looms for Canadians 

By Joe Lapointe 

Sew York Tunes Service 

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — In conver- 
sations about hockey, the passion for the sport 
among Western Canadians doesn’t stop with words. 

David Maynard, an 18-y ear-old from Manitoba, 
recently introduced himself to a group of people in 
the club car of a westbound train by pulling up his 
shirt to reveal a red tattoo near his heart. It was the 
C-H logo of the Montreal Caoadiens. 

“It’s a thing in my family; we’ve all got one,” said 
Maynard “My dad has one. My uncles have one. 
My brother has one. It’s something we do on our 
18th birthday.” 

In his hometown of St. Malo, a small French- 
Canadian community, Maynard said, there are “two 
important things in town, the hockey rink and the 
Catholic church." Asked about the lockout that has 
shut down the National Hockey League season, 
Maynard replied: “Put it this way: They' took away 
my religion.” 

Unlike many American hockey fans, people here 
tend to support the team owners in the conflict over 
Wages — by a margin of about 2-to-l in Canada, 
according to polls. They believe that Canadian fran- 
chises, particularly in the West, have real financial 
problems, and that failure to address them will lead 
to the teams' moving elsewhere. Many also seemed 
exasperated by arguments about salary and prices. 

“Salaries are outrageous,” said Enn Murray, a 
young physiotherapist from Winnipeg. “Aren’t six 
figures enough?” 

Like others, she believes there is a direct relation- 
ship between wages and ticket prices. 

“A salary cap is understandable,” she said, “just 
so that the everyday Canadian can actually go to a 
hockey game.” 

Over all, the fans seemed to be taking the NHL 
shutdown with grim patience as October came to a 
close and the final leaves fell from the trees. But one 
young photographer said a mood change was near. 
“Wait until the the snow falls and the weather gets 

cold and they’re trapped in their houses,” he said. 
“Cabin fever will begin to set in. Then, look out." 

In Winnipeg, a prairie city of the wheal belt, they 
staged a sophisticated version of a barn-raising last 
week to support the construction of a new. big- 
league hockey arena. Without one, Winnipeggers 
and Manitobans fear they will lose their NHL fran- 
chise, the Jets, to the United States, possibly to the 
Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, 
where suitors are wooing the owner. 

About 2,000 people listened to several speakers, 
including Bob Silver, a manufacturer of blue jeans, 
in the ballroom of a downtown hotel. Silver ac- 
knowledged Minnesota’s threat to take his team 
from his home and native land. 

“Well, they just might,” Silver said, his voice 
rising with emotion, “but not without a fight. We’re 
bigger than Minnesota, we’re better than Minnesota 
and we can make it work!” 

Later, he said Western Canadians were siding 
with the team owners in the NHL dispute because 
they hope wage control will keep the business alive 
in smaller markets. 

“It’s an endorsement not only of Winnipeg, but of 
all the smaller communities, the ones that need the 
revenue-sharing,” Silver said. “Without that, we 
don't exist, especially cities like this and Calgary, 
where hockey comes from. We are fanatic about 
hockey. If we lose it here, we might as well be 
importing them all from Russia.” 


In Calgary, a long block of Eleventh Avenue 
downtown is better known us “Electric Avenue” 
because it is the brightly lit center of night life. 

But on one recent evening, despite clear, crisp 
weather, there were few live wires sparking the 
sidewalks, few patrons in the clubs and bars. Part of 
the blame, especially at “Slinky’s Sports Bar & 
Grill,” was being put on the lockout that has idled 
the hometown Flames. 

When the NHL is playing its regular schedule. 

Stinky’s docs big business, even on weeknights, 
because it pulls in telecasts of games from out of 
town through six satellite feeds spread out amon g 25 

But on this night, the only events bong shown 
were a tape of the Canada Cup Hockey tournament 
from 1 987 and a tape of the Knicks playing Houston 
in last June's National Basketball Association finale 

Rob Gradishar, a part-owner of Stinky’s, had a 
frown on his face when be came out from behind the

my religion. 9

bar to discuss the economic and social imp act of the 
shutdown. Scattered around him were about two dozen 
customers in an establishment that seats 100 people 
and accommodates many tome standees. He expressed 
little support for either management or labor. 

“I hope they both die of hunger,” he said. “Isn’t 
there more than enough money for everybody?" 

_ □ 

in Edmonton, even during the lockout, there is 
plenty of activity inside Northlands Coliseum, home 
of the Oilers. Midway through an afternoon last 
week, the air was filled with construction dust and 
the banging sounds of carpentry from dozens of 
workers wearing hard hats. 

With October games canceled and November 
games slipping away, the construction schedule at 
Northlands has been accelerated. They are installing 
35 new luxury suites, which will be sold and con- 
trolled by Peter Pocklington, owner of the Oilers. 

One of the stated reasons for the lockout is to retard 
the growth of salaries so that owners such as Pockling- 
ton can stay in business in places such as Edmonton. 
In recent years, Pocklington accepted large sums of 
money in deals that sent players like Gretzky to Los 
Angeles and Mark Messier to New York. 

Last season, when Pocklington threatened to sell 
his team and let it move to the United States, he 
forced the committee that runs Northlands to give 
him a new lease with much more favorable terms. 

With salary controls a possibility and luxury box- 
es a reality, Pbcklington's Oilers could soon generate 
a large amount of revenue for their owner. These 
drcumstances draw mixed reactions from their loyal 
fans, who know the history here. 

“It’s almost like the owners are Chicken Little." 
said Dean Wetzel, who works as a resource manage- 
ment planner for the Alberta government. “Instead 
of crying out that the sky is falling, they run around 
saying: Tve been driven into poverty! I’ve been 
dnven into poverty! I’ve been driven into poverty!' " 


When Arthur Griffiths left Vancouver for a vaca- 
tion in Hawaii, he said he was a dove on the lockout. 
But when he returned last week, the young owner of 
the Can 11 ^ said his position had changed “to more 
of a hawk.” 

His change of heart, he said, was caused by the 
Players Association's refusal to believe that the 
owners are having financial problems. Despite 
reaching the Stanley Cup finals last season, the team 
barely made money, Griffiths said. 

“We made $800,000 net profit on a $50 million 
business,” be said. “We took in $9.3 million in the 
playoffs. It got our bacon out of the fire. The 
numbers are there despite what the union might 
want to let you think.” 

The Canucks raised their admission prices by 45 
percent this summer. They lost 1 ,000 season-ticketh- 
olders this summer and gained back only 850 when 
they raised their admission prices. Single seats cost 
up to $59. Seven years ago, be said, his payroll was 
S8 million. This season, he said, it will be $26 

So if the hockey business is so bad, why is Grif- 
fiths buying up the public stock in his team, increas- 
ing his share from 51 percent to 87 percent? 

“Economies of scale.” he said. Griffiths also is the 
principal owner of the Vancouver Grizzlies, who 
begin play in the National Basketball Association 
next season. 

Both the Canucks and the Grizzlies will play is 
Griffiths’s new ar ena, under construction near the 
waterfront in tins stunningly beautiful city on the 
Pacific rim. The arena will have S8 luxury boxes that 
are already all sold out for hockey at up to $130,000 
per season. 

A few miles away, at the Britannia Arena in a 
working-class section of town, hockey economics are 
a little -different for the guys who gather for the 
pickup game at noon every Friday. They pool their 
money to rent an hour of ice. 

“It’s $3.25 each and goalies play for free," ex- 
plained Tommy Ho, a center, who had finished 
another pickup game at another arena around mid- 
night the night before. He pays for his ice time by 
working at yet another arena, sharpening skates. 

Ho sat on a bench, taping up his stick and chatting 
about the postponed NHL season. Across from him, 
lacing up Ins skates, was Gavin Yee, who wore a 
Philadelphia Flyers style uniform and said the lock- 
out forced him to cancel his yearly vacation to 
Philadelphia, where he goes to games at the Spec- 
trum. Down the bench from him was Bob Kraljii, a 
furniture mover who tried to explain why guys 
around here will pay to play hockey in the middle of 
the day or night. 

“Obviously, I could do other things for the exer- 
cise,” Kraljii said. “Hockey requires a bit of planning/ 
and patience and sacrifice. It puts strings on your 
relationships with your girlfriend and your job.” 

“But there’s something about when winter comes 
along in Canada,” he added. "The culture dictates it. 
It’s a freedom thing . Out there, on the ice, you are 
flying! You can be a kid again. They could tow my 
car away and I wouldn’t get off the ice to stop them. 
I’m 30 years old and I get out there on that ice and 
play hockey and 1 forget all my troubles. You get 
back to the essence of youth.” 

His Number Is Up, 
But Not His Time 

By Harvey Araton 

VtfH- York Times Service 

CHICAGO — Michael Jordan did not want to sav good- 
bye, because he’s hoping to meet this city’s sports fans again. 
At Comiskey Park. 

“In basketball, I fulfilled my dream,” Jordan said after the 
Chicago Bulls retired his uniform jersey No. 23 here on 
Tuesday night at the new United Center. “My dream now is 
to play in the major leagues.” 

The programmed two-hour show — short on passion. long 
on glitz — was telecast live. Guests playfully urged the former 
Bulls great to rejoin the team that won three successive 
National Basketball Association championships, a run that 
ended with Jordan's sudden retirement before last season. 

Jordan, who took time out from playing winter baseball in 
Scottsdale, Arizona, wouldn’t bite. 

“Hopefully, with that jersey hanging up there, it will put 
these things to rest,” he said. 

Tuesday night’s program, aside from serving to retire Jordan's 
number, benefited the Chicago Boys and Girls Club charity that 
Jordan set up in memory of his father. James, who was murdered 
in 1993. Tickets were $50, $75 and $100, and roughly 20,000 were 
; sold. The fans gave Jordan several long standing ovations. 

“I think they were actually trying to make me cry,” he said. 
“I didn't want to cry. I got emotional a little bit.” 

Jordan’s mother, Deloris Jordan, attended, as did his wife, 
Juanita, the couple’s three children and many of Jordan's 
former teammates, like Scottie Pippen and John Pax son. 
Conspicuously absent from Jordan’s Bulls were Horace Grant 
and Bill Cartwright, now with Orlando and Seattle. 

The Knicks' Patrick Ewing, who shares the agent David 
Falk with Jordan, attended, as did the former NBA greats 
Julius Erving, Oscar Robertson, George Mikan. Bob Cousy 
and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and 
Charles Barkley sent videotaped greetings. 

Jordan said that if he had one regret, it was that his night 
could not be held next door, at condemned Chicago Stadium, 
where he played his entire nine-year career. 

"The new building is over here, but Michael Jordan’s 
memories are over there.” he said

NHL Managers Weigh Canceling Season 

Compiled by Ov Staff From Dispatches 

TORONTO — National 
Hockey League general manag- 
ers discussed cutting the season 
in half or canceling it altogether 
if the league's labor troubles are 
not solved by New Year’s Day, 
The Canadian Press .reported. 

"They told us basically to do 
our math and figure out when 
the season might be canceled,” 
one general manager, who 
asked not to be identified, told 
the news agency. 

Although no decisions were 
made during a conference call 
Tuesday, the wire service report- 
ed that management was zeroing 
in on a 40-game season begin- 

ning Jan. 1 as the minimum for a 
legitimate season. 

The NHL vice president of 
hockey operations, Brian Burke, 
told ESPN Radio that he re- 
mained optimistic that a settle- 
ment could be reached, but 
warned that the season must be 
resumed by early January. 

“We will not play a meaning- 
less schedule.” Burke said. “I 
cannot justify playing a 30- to 
35-game schedule.” 

When asked what constituted 
a meaningful schedule, Burke 
said 40 to 42 games, and be said 
there was a legitimate danger of 
passing the point of no return in 

“There’s a very real, substan- 
tia], significant risk that we're 
not going to have hockey.” he 

Officially, the league has can- 
celed only four games per team. 
It is expected to trim at least 10 
more games from the original 
84-game schedule this week. 

The NHL commissioner, 
Gary Bettman, and the union 
head. Bob Goodenow, have met 
only twice in three weeks. No 
progress was reported after the 
most recent meeting in Wash- 
ington on Monday, and no 
more talks are scheduled. 

Goodenow was planning to 
meet with 200 players on 

Wednesday at a Toronto hotel 
to update them on the month- 
old lockout and discuss other 
financial matters relating to 
their lack of employment 

Owners originally delayed 
the start of the season for two 
weeks in order to allow time to 
work out a collective bargaining 
agreement to replace the one 
that expired Sept. 15, 1993. 

That delay has stretched into 
its second month — the longest 
labor disruption in NHL histo- 
— with 175 games lost 
ough Tuesday. Eight more 
were scheduled for Wednesday.

4 Groups Bid for 2 Baseball Franchises 

By Mark Maske 
and Eric Lipton 

Washington Post Service 

CHICAGO — Representatives of four 
would-be ownership groups from three 
communities seeking major-league fran- 
chises have made their pitches to baseball’s 
expansion committee. 

Bart Fisher, an attorney who is leading 
one of the two groups attempting to secure 
a team for Northern Virginia, created per- 
haps the biggest stir when he told the nine- 
member committee that a syndicate of 
black investors would be the franchise's 
largest shareholder if he and his partners 
were awarded an expansion club, 

Phoenix, Arizona, and Tampa-St. Pe- 
tersburg, Florida, also made presenta- 
tions at an airport hotel here on Tuesday. 
And baseball sources continued to sav 

that those communities were the clear 
favorites if baseball awarded two expan- 
sion teams. 

“I think we're offering baseball a hisior- 
ic opportunity.” Fisher said. “We think it's 
a home run. 1 think someone from our area 
is going to get a team. Our group is offering 
baseball not only the opportunity to return 
the national pastime to the nation's capi- 
tal, but also to do it in a way that's repre- 
sentative of the community.” 

Sources dose to the process said they 
believed the Northern Virginia group led 
by the telecommunications executive 
William Collins 3d had emerged as the 
area’s more-attractive, stable ownership 
conglomerate. Collins said late Tuesday 
he would not consider merging his group 
with Fisher’s. But Fisher's surprise an- 
nouncement may place considerable 

pressure on baseball, which often has 
been criticized for its lack of minority 

No African American has served as the 
majority owner of a major-league fran- 
chise. The only minority-owned team is the 
Seattle Mariners, who were purchased by a 
group of Japanese-led investors. Two Afri- 
can Americans, Comer Cottrell with the 
Texas Rangers and Roger Blunt with the 
Baltimore Orioles, are part-owners of ma- 
jor-league franchises. 

“We are offering baseball the opportu- 
nity, for the second time this century, to 
address an issue that needs addressing.'' 
said Robert W. Johnson, a venture capi- 
talist who is involved with Fisher's group. 
“The first time was with Jackie Robin-

day placed the Jacksonville and 
Carolina e xpa nsion franchises 
into the NFL*s current four- 
team divisions. 

Jacksonville will play the 
1995 season in the AFC Cen- 
tral, with Houston, Cleveland, 
Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. Car- 
olina wiB play in the NFC 
West, with San Francisco, At- 
lanta, New Orleans and the Los 
Angeles Rams. 

The league will have six divi- 
sions of five teams each. 

Tagli abue said the plan 
would be in force for next sea- 
son season only. Club owners 
must vote to either reaffirm it or 
jealign the divisions. 
^'Pittsburgh’s owner, Dan 
Rooney, had proposed that six 
te am s — Seattle, Tampa Bay, 
Arizona, Indianapolis, Houston 
and Atlanta — change divi- 
sions. But many teams balked 
at the loss of rivalries and, sub- 
sequently, posable revenues. 

“Ultimately, we’d like to 
move some people around — as 
long as it’s not us,” said Minne- 
sota's president, Roger Hea- 
drick. “But that’s the way other 
people feel, too, and that’s why 
we don't get anything done.” 

Tagfiabue appointed a 10- 
member committee to study the 
issue. The committee will report 
at a meeting in March. 

Also, anew scheduling meth- 
od was enacted to make room 
for the two new fran chises. 
Each of the league's 30 teams 
will play eight games within its 
divisjon, . four games against 
nondivision teams within its 
conference and four games 
against teams from the other 

A solitary goal by Liberian 
striker George Weah carried 
Pans St.-Germain into the 
quarterfinals of the European 
Cup on Wednesday with a 1-0 
victory over Dynamo Kiev of 

Weah’s header in the 6Sth 
minute gave PSG a maximum 
®ghl points from four games in 
me Champions’ League Group 
B and guaranteed them a place 
in the last eight with two match- 
es still to play. 

But the Paris team had to 
struggle to break down a

For South African Marathoner, a Run From ‘Zero to Hero 9 

By Jere Longman . . 

New York Tima Service 

NEW YORK — This is how Willie 
Mtolo’s 1 ife has changed since he won., 
the 1992 New York City Marathon: 
He was voted South Africa’s sports- 
man of the year. Six months ago, he 
was one of two athletes invited to the- 
inauguration of President Nelson 
Mandela. On Sunday, he will nm New 
York again for victoiy, but at homebe 
runs often for peace and unity. 

He organizes charity runs for 
peace in the townships where blacks 
were restricted under the rarial poh- 
des of apartheid, naming with a 
white flag, encouraging whiles to en- 
ter black neighborhoods, urging peo- 
ple to come together now that law no 
longer keeps them apart 

More than 150 runners havejoined 
the Willie Mtolo Athletic Chib. 
Apartheid is gone, but inequality in 

sports remains. The best facilities are 
situated in white neighborhoods, so 
Mtolo is working to bring his sport to 
blacks, organizing races, measuring 
the correct distances on dirt tracks, 
providing incentives for kids to run 
their fastest times. The “zero to hero” 
program, he calls it. 

There is much work to be done. In 
all of black South Africa, there is 
only one all-weather running track. It 
is in Soweto and was built with 
church money, not for running, but 
for wheelchair races for the disabled. 
In another Soweto neighborhood, a 
cement velodrome sits unused, a 
well-intended waste because most 
people cannot afford bicycles. 

Slowly, things are changing in die 
newly democratic South Africa. A 
new trade stadium has been planned 
for Soweto. And role models Kke 
Mtolo are planting the seeds of hope 

for what some believe could be as 
fertile a running harvest as was pro- 
duced in Kenya. 

“He has rolled his sleeves up and 
gotten his hands dirty , trying to help 
kids on a grass-roots level,” Ray De 
Vries, who is Mtolo’s agent, said 
Tuesday. “Few athletes do that.” 

Two years ago. South Africa had 
just been readmitted to (he Olympic 
embrace after 32 years of banishment. 
Mtolo, 30, was the first South African 
to officially enter the New York City 
Marathon. His victoiy changed many 
fives, including his own. 

With the $20,000 in prize money, a 
$30,000 bonus for running undo- 2 
hours, 10 minutes (2:09:29) and the 
Mercedes-Benz he won in New York, 
Mtolo has bought a house in the 
Pinetown section of Durban, a port 
city on the Indian Ocean. He lives 
near De Vries, something that would 

have been impossible under the 
Group Areas Act that once separated 
the races under apartheid. 

Two brothers and sisters live with 
him, and for bis sisters he provides 
money for school and clothing. He 
has also purchased a 300-acre (120- 
hectare) farm, and a tractor for the 
two-acre spread where his mother 
grows com and potatoes in the vil- 
lage Of Kflmon. 

“The victory was a good thing for 
South Africa,” Mtolo said. “People 
needed a hero.” 

He is dedicating this year's mara- 
thon to Fred Lebow, the race director 
who died of brain cancer last month. 
Lebow brought Mtolo to New York 
as a spectator in 1991. A year later, it 
was Mtolo who held the tape when 
Lebow crossed the finish line when 
he ran his own marathon. 

This year, Mtolo will have as a 

personal cheerleader his own mother, 
Bagchili Mtolo, who has never seen 
him run. This is her first trip out of 
South Africa, her first ride in an 
airplane. In South Africa, she lives in 
a remote village without electricity or 
running water. In New York, she has 
taken her first ride on an elevator and 
an escalator. 

For the next five days, he is con- 
centrating on running." He has not 
won a major marathon since New 
York. Last year, he overtrained and 
ran without distinction. This year, he 
finished second to Vincent Rousseau 
of Belgium in the Rotterdam Mara- 
thon, running 2:10:17, his fastest 
time since winning in New York. 

His mother will be waiting at the 
finish line. “I’m very excited with my 
mother here,” Mtolo said. “If she 
sees me fait the tape, I think she will 


Indian Record-Holder Quits Cricket 

NEW DELHI (Combined Dispatches) — Kapil Dev, test 
cricket’s highest wicket-taker, announced his retirement from the 
game on Wednesday. 

Kapil, 35, took a world-record 434 wickets in 131 tests with his 
fast-medium outswing since his Test debut on Oct. 16, 1978 
against Pakistan. He is the only man in test cricket to have scored 
over 5,000 runs and taken more than 400 wickets. 

He became the top test wicket-taker when he broke Sir Richard 
Hadlee's record of 431 test wickets during a test match against Sri 
Lanka earlier this year in India. Kapil Dev has played 131 tests 
and 224 one-day internationals. He said he would begin a new 
career as a television commentator. (AP, Reuters, AFP) 

A Top Cuban Boxer Defects to U.S. 

MIAMI (AP) — A top member of the Cuban national boxing 
team and one of the best amateurs in the world in his weight 
division took advantage of a one-night stopover to defect with the 

help of a former teammate who defected last year.

The Pope’s Book Tour 



Pope has written a new 
book, and the publishers have 
high hopes for iL That's why a 
t ea m of American publicists 
went over to see him to discuss 
his book tour. 

The conversation went some- 
thing like this: 

“Good news. Your Holiness, 
Barbara Walters has agreed to 
put you on her 
show. The bad 
news is that 
Barbara said if 
you do it you 
can't go on 
Diane Sawyer 
or Connie 
Chung. It was 
a dose call, but H A jfe- 
Barbara's put- H rM 
ting you on Buchwald 
with Prince 

Charles and Alan Dershowiiz, 
and we figure that she should 
have an 8Q share of the audi- 
ence. Larry King is dying to get 
you but can’t give us a firm ‘yes’ 
because he still hasn’t heard 
from Ross Perot and Mrs. Huff- 
ing ton. 

“We told Larry that we can’t 
hold off any longer because we 
are being pressured by the 
‘Hard Copy’ people, who say 
that this is the First time they 
have agreed to do a straight 
interview with a high official of 
the Catholic Church. 

"Now, Your Holiness, here's 
your book schedule. We want 
you to visit major dlies such as 
Billings, Montana; Portland. 
Maine; Cheyenne, Wyoming, 
and Fairbanks. Alaska. These 
are towns that specifically asked 

for you, and 1 believe that we can 
move an average of ISO books in 
each city, depending on how fast 
you sign them, of course. 

“From Fairbanks Your Holi- 
ness will return to New York 
where we have you booked on 
the Phil Donahue show. The 
‘Donahue’ people have a good 
lineup. On the panel with you 
will be a defrocked priest who 
now works in a birth control

War Spoils: Will Russia Return German Books? 

By Michael Specter 

New York Tima Soviet 

M OSCOW — Fifty years after 
Russia and Germany savaged 
each other’s cultural heritage in 
World War II. Russia has yet to re- 
turn most of the millions of books 
that it stole from Germany at the end 
of World War II. 

Germany destroyed nearly 200 
million Russian books in the war, 
but it long ago returned most of the 
books it had left and has sent mil- 
lions of dollars to Russia in partial 

For Russia, however, the legacy 
of the war lives on

The issue has gained

don't see why they should return the 
rare spoils of a war that did so much 
damage to Russia. 

“You have to remember Russia 
won this war,** said Viktor Niziano, 
director of the Center of Contempo- 
rary Arts, in Moscow. “We were the 
victors. Let us also remember that we 
did not start this war. Germany did. 
Of course, all the works should be 
open and available to scholars. But if

Increasingly, they 

portray this battle 

as one not between 
two former wartime enemies but be- 
tween factions in Russia; nationalis- 
tic politicians who see keeping the 
books as an easy rallying point and 
librarians willing to trade the old 

there was little political momentum 
toward finding a quick solution to 
the problem, although Germany has 
offered to replace the books with tens 
of thousands of new publications 
that Russian librarians say would be 
far more useful to the average reader. 
Parliamentary action will be required 
to resolve the dispute. 

The technical and legal obstacles 
to the return are daunting. Immedi- 
ately after World War IL the Red 
Army dragged milli ons of books, 
including entire libraries from many 
German cities, to Russia. More than 
half of them. 5 million according to 
current estimates, ended up either in 
Moscow or in St Petersburg, where 
many remain today. It is not always 
clear who owned the books in the 
first place and therefore to whom 
they should be returned. 

Millions of the books were sent to 
Soviet libraries across the country. 
The Lenin Library in Moscow re- 
ceived 760,000 books (of which more 
than 600,000 remain) and Moscow 
State University also received an 
enormous quantity. 

Some of the books, a Gutenberg 
Bible and several medieval manu- 
scripts, for example, are of great 
value. But outstanding collections

ed 50 years ago, and the Cold War 
ended almost 10 years ago. We have 
to decide: Are we going to spend the 
rest of time remembering that once 
the Germans were our enemies, or 
are we ready to start thinking about 
what we can accomplish as 

For some Russians, it is still a 
difficult question. Many jingoist pol- 
iticians insist thai after 50 years and 
millions of lost lives, the books be-

ars point out that the French never 
returned Italian masterpieces pil-

um in St. Petersburg returned more 
than 70 French Impressionist and 
Post-Impressionist paintings taken

Filatov conceded, however, that

tens of thousands of books that have 
been stolen. And they note that 
Russian intellectuals were deeply 
devoted to foreign literature before 
the revolution and not every impor- 
tant German book in the country' 
was stolen. 

"We are not even concerned with 
books from the ISth or 19th centu- 
ries.” said Klaus Dieter Leman, gen- 
eral director of the German National 
Library in Frankfurt. “What we want 
are the main collections of libraries 
from the early 16th and 17th centu- 
ries. This is the central heritage of

those books are the books of our 
nation. They aren't even used in Rus- 


Preying on the acute financial cri- 
sis facing most Russian libraries, 
many rare-book dealers from Ger- 
many and other countries have sim- 
ply descended on libraries offering 
huge sums for large collections. 

"You have to understand the pres- 
sures.” said one American librarian 
famili ar with the issue. "You run a 
provincial library and you haven’t 
been able to buy 10 new books in the 
last two years. People are dying to 
use the libraries and your books are 
falling apart. Suddenly somebody 
comes in and offers you SI, 000 or 
more for 50 books that nobody in 

your town can even read. What do 
you do?” 

Kuzmin, loo, said he had heard 
reports of book dealers buying en- 
tire collections from libraries but 
said it was illegal and that anyone 
caught would be vigorously prose- 

"We have a population desperate 
for good books,” Kuzmin said. 
"And the Germans are eager to help 
us buy them. We are literally pre- 
venting our youngsters from getting 
their hands on literature, especially 
foreign literature. To me that is far 
more painful than the thought of 
returning admittedly beautiful trea- 
sures that were never ours to begin

H IS Highness in the ’Hood: 

Prince Charles has come 
to south-central Los Angeles, 
making teenage girls scream as 
if he were a rock star. "He 
touched my hand, he touched 
my hand!" shrieked one young 
wo man. “He touched my hair!” 

Traveling in a motorcade of 
Jaguars, Charles's first stop 
was an inner-city school, where 
he dedicated a learning center. 

On a long day that ended with 
the Hollywood premiere of 
"Mary Shelley’s Franken- 
stein.” public sentiment for the 
scandal-plagued prince ran 
high on the adoration side. 
Meanwhile, back in London. _ 
Zoe SaDis responded to a refer- 
ence to her in the just published Prince < 
biography of Charles. “We had 
a great, deep friendship, nothing more,” 
Today newspaper quoted her as saying. 


A federal judge in Los Angeles stopped 
the auction of six diaries written by Barbra 
Streisand in the 1960s. Streisand’s lawyer 
would not say who owned the diaries last, 
but her spokesman. Martin Eriidanan. 

Prince Charles with Jack Nicholson at the movie premiere. 

predicted the papers "would never be on 
the street again.” 

Sid Vicious, the icon of Britain's punk 
era, who died of a heroin overdose at age 
21 , never played a note for the Sex Pistols 
because he was such a bad guitarist the 

group's manager, Malcolm 
McLaren, says. At Sex Pistols 
concerts in the 1970s, Vicious 
would perform with the ampli- 
fier turned off, although no one 
dared tell him because of his 
reputation for violence. 
McLaren said. "Sid was a ten* 
ble musician, but he was a great 
anger.” he said. Vicious was 
found dead in a New York 
apartment in 1979. 


A juiy in San Franciseu 
cleared die New Yorker writer 
Janet Malcolm of libel charges 
on Wednesday, rejecting claims 
by a psychoanalyst who ac- 
Rnrtm cused her of making up quotes 
nfiijara attributed to him. The jurv 
found that two of the five 
quotes challenged by Jeffrey 
Masson were false but that Masson had 
failed to prove that Malcolm deliberately 
falsified the statements. A jury dead- 
locked last year in the first trial of the 
decade-old case. Malcolm's unflattering 
1982 article focused on Masson's firing as 
projects director of the Sigmund Freud
