AMMAN, Jordan — After tortuous 
overnight negotiations and with little ad- 
vance fanfare, Israel and Jordan initialed a 
draft peace treaty Monday in the first 
major addition to the patchwork of Middle 
East peace since last year’s agreement be- 
tween Israel and the Palestine Liberation 

The treaty joined lands whose conflicts 
had for more than 20 years left them as 
uneasy neighbors rather than active com- 
batants. But in the region’s diplomacy, it 
maintained the momentum of peace ef- 
forts and shifted the diplomatic focus to 
Syria and Lebanon as Israel’s only neigh- 
bors still in a state of war. Israel signed its 
first peace agreement with an Arab neigh- 
bor in 1979 when it formally ended hostil- 
ities with Egypt. 

Neither of the signers made public de- 
tails of tbe accord, and officials said a final 
agreement still had to be worked out. 

Israeli radio reported that the deal in- 
volved Israel's agreeing to divert some 50 
million cubic meters of water a year to 
Jordan where, as elsewhere in this region, 
water is almost as valuable a commodity as 
oil in calculations of economic viability. 

AdditionaUy, the two sides reportedly 
agreed to build dams on the Yarmuk and 
Jordan rivers at an unspecified later stage 
to increase water supplies to both coun-

Washington Post Service 

BEUING — Tbe Clinton administration, which just a 
few months ago was considering import sanctions on 
toys, pharmaceuticals, clothes and other goods made by 
Chinese military enterprises, signed an accord on Mon- 
day that provides U.S. assistance to help the Chinese 
milita ry make even more civilian products. 

The turnaround is part of the U.S.-Chinese rapproche- 
ment underlined by a four-day visit by Defense Secretary 
William J. Peny. Mr.’ Peny. who has visited China nine 
times though never as defense secretary, was warmly 
received Monday as “an old friend of C hina. ” 

He met with Foreign Minister Qian Qjchen and De- 
fense Minister Chi Haotian as well as Liu Huaqing, 
deputy chairman of tbe Central Military Commission, 
and Ding Henggao, the minister of the Commission of 
Science, Technology and Industry. 

Mr. Perry called the meetings “a good start.” and Mr. 
Chi said “both sides have shown a positive attitude for 
the restoration and development of relations between the 
two armies." 

American officials said the talks dealt with six issues: 
North Korea, the halt of long-range missile exports by 
China, the spread of nuclear weapons, human rights, 
defense conversion and the need to make China's mi Uiary 
less secretive. Both sides affirmed commitments to a 
nuclear-free Korean Peninsula, the end of missile expons 
•mu •nt.-cluir' nonproiiieraiiort. 

In sharp contrast to Chinese meetings with State De- 
partment officials earlier this year, Mr. Perry’s talks were 
not marred by any discussion of U.S. relations with 
Taiwan. Discussions of human rights were amicable. 
American officials said, taking up 15 to 20 minutes of Mr. 
Perry’s two-hour meeting with the Chinese defense minis- 
ter and three senior service commanders. 

overall relations, and that human rights were an impor- 
tant component of that. 

.Although conceding that the discussion of human 
rights did not lead to any “common views," a senior U.S. 
official said the talks were “non polemical” and at least 
opened an additional channel to address such issues. 

State Department human-rights officials have been 
largely stymied in their efforts to engage the Chinese 
government on human-rights issues, including prison 
conditions, the detention of dissidents and the jamming 
of broadcasts of the Voice of America. 

The signing of the accord to create the Joint Defense 
Conversion Commission is aimed at aiding Chinese ef- 

Israeli radio said the two sides hod also 
reached a complex accord on territoiy that 
would allow Jordan to reassert its sover- 
eignty over a pocket of Israeli-occupied 
territoiy measuring some 350 square kilo- 
meters (135 square miles) along their 
southern border, hut lease about 30 square 
kilometers of the lerriton' back to Israel. 

The unusual arrangement could become 
a precedent for Israel’s negotiations with 
Syria over the far more extensive and ex- 
plosive issue of w>ho controls the Israeli- 
occupied Golan Height*. This is the cen- 
tral theme of Israel’s conflict with 
President Hafez Assad in Damascus. 

In Amman on Monday, both Israeli and 
Jordanian leaders seemed intent on under- 
scoring the virtues of their agreement and 
the warmth of a relationship that is widely 
thought to have grown in secrecy when the 
two sides were not officially on speaking

“Between us. hopefully, it is a fresh

LONDON — In a move pointing to 3 
rift in the Windsor family, the Duke of 
Edinburgh delivered a public rebuke on 
Monday to his son, the Prince of Wales, 
far cooperating with a biography that pre- 
sents the prince as someone who under- 
went a lonely childhood, has an unsatis- 
factory relationship with his parents and 
was browbeaten into a loveless marriage. 

Excerpts from the book, winch will go 
on sale next month, appeared Sunday in 
The Sunday Tunes. It has proved a bomb- 

The Duke of Edinburgh, portrayed un- 
flatteringly in the book as a domineering 
father whose harsh words could reduce 
Charles to tears, responded obliquely in 
an interview in the Daily Telegraph. He 
made it clear that he felt that members of 
the royal family should keep their family 
matters out of the public domain. 

“Fve never discussed private matters 
and I don’t think the queen has either,” he 
said “Very few members of the family 
have.” The newspaper said that Prince 
Philip had reportedly referred to the biog- 
raphy. titled “The Prince erf Wales,” as 
“that turgid book.” 

In addition to chastising his son for 
baring his soul in public, Philip noted that 
the monarchy had been around for “the 
last thousand years.” “If it’s lasted that 
long, it can’t be all that bad,” he said. 

The controversy has overshadowed a 
visit to Russia by Queen Elizabeth and 
Prince Philip.

markable washing of dirty royal linen in

Mon dose 

By Isabel Wilkerson 

New Yvrt, Times Service 

JOHANNESBURG — A desperate call came into the drab 
offices of the domestic workers' union here one recent afternoon. 
It was from a maid who had worked 10 straight years without a 
day off and was being dismissed after asking for a day to herself. 

A roomful of domestics, in their third-hand clothes and 
trademark berets, overheard the conversation. They were tired 
and far from their homelands and had not seen their families 
since Christmas. They ate, slept and talked to their children at 
the pleasure of their employers. Some fretted that they had to get 
back to make supper for Lhe bosses and wash their dishes and 
pick up their shoes. Some could lose their jobs if their employers 
knew they were dallying with the union. Indeed, some already 

And so when the call came in from a maid in trouble, the 
domestics had few tears left to shed for her. They looked down at 
tbe caipet in painful recognition. 

In the months since South Africa’s humblest workers went to 

the polls for tbe first time, many defying their employers to vote 
for Nelson Mandela, life has changed little for the people who 
form the human scaffolding of South Africa’s white elite. 

Earlier this year, in a bid to get their votes, the former 
government expanded the labor laws to give baric protection to 
domestic workers for tbe first time, entitling them to things like 
rick leave and hmch breaks. But because there appears to be little 
in the way of enforcement, and because domestics often work in 
gated isolation and in fear of losing their jobs, the rules are 
usually ignored, government officials concede. 

“It’s even worse than it was before,” said Selina Vilakari, an 

o § >-^td endured for 46 years. 

Until Sunday, however, there had been

Channel Opens 
Door Nov. 14 
To Passengers 

By Erik Ipsen 

International Herald Tribune 

LONDON — The wait for passenger 
trains through the Channel Tunnel is al- 
most over. 

Eurostar, the operator of through pas- 
senger trains from London to Paris and 
Brussels, announced Monday that it would 
begin service Nov. 14. 

That news came on the same day that 
the tunneTs operators, Eurotunnel, an- 
nounced that because of the delayed start 
of service their revenues for the first six 
months of the year were 75 percent below 
projections made in May. 

Tbe Eurotunnel chairman. Sir Alastair 
Morton, noting a “frustrating and diffi- 
cult” first nine months of the year, sound- 
ed an upbeat message about the future. 

“All I am saying is that we are late; we 
are sorry, but the product is now in place,” 
he said at a news conference. 

Eurostar said its through-train passen- 
ger service would begin Nov. 14, with two 
trains per day from London to both Paris 
and Brussels. The round-trip fares for the 
Paris journey, which takes 3 hours, and the 
trip lo Brussels, which takes 3 hours 15 
mmutes, will be 1,290 French francs ($248) 
in second class and 1,620 francs in first 

By Easter, Eurotunnel officials said they 
expected to be operating full schedules on 
each of its two passenger and two freight 

Eurotunnel officials said delays in test- 
ing and commissioning both its rolling 
stock and its fixed systems, like signals, 
were responsible for delays that have 
pushed the opening dates well beyond tbe 
tunnel’s inauguration in early May. 

Hie delays were blamed for a shortfall in 
Eurotunnel’s expected cash position at the 
end of the year of £50 million ($80 mil- 
lion), cutting its cash cushion to £200 mil- 
lion. Sir Alastair stressed, however, that his

German Vote Gives 
Socialists New Role 

Scharping Warns of Troubles 
For Weakened Kohl Coalition 

By Craig R. Whitney 

New York Times Service 

BONN — Chancellor Hel- 
mut Kohl, his government co- 
alition whittled down to a 10- 
seat majority in Parliament in 
Sunday’s elections, dismissed 
the setback Monday as no ob- 
stacle to his ability to keep gov- 
erning Germany for another 
four years. 

But on any major decision 
affecting the future of Germa- 
ny, Europe, or trans-Atlantic 
relations, the chancellor now 
appears to have little option but 
to seek consensus with the op- 
position first. 

“A majority is a majority,” he 
said Monday, trying to look just 
as confidently in charge as he 
had been when he had a 134- 
seat edge, before the vote. 

“It's been four difficult years 
since the last election,” he add- 
ed, alluding to the high costs 
and social and economic turbu- 
lence brought by German re- 
unification in 1990. 

Rudolf Scharping, the 46- 
year-old leader of the largest 
opposition party, the Social 
Democrats, predicted just as 
confidently that the days of the 
coalition were numbered. 

“It will soon run into heavy 
seas,” he told reporters at party 
headquarters, where he tried to 
look like a man who knows time 
is on ius.side. 

Some seasoned diplomats 
here believe that Mr. Scharping. 
who gave up his state governor- 
ship to lead his party in Parlia- 
ment here for the next four 
years, is clearly the man to 
watch, even though Mr. Kohl 
managed to hold on this time. 

The chancellor’s Christian 
Democratic alliance won 41.5 
percent of the vote, and their 
Free Democratic coalition part- 
ners emerged with 6.9 percent, 
according to official prelimi- 
nary results Monday. 

Not only did the election 
strengthen the opposition So- 
cial Democrats and the envi- 
ronmentalist Greens in the low- 
er house of Parliament, but 
simultaneous votes for three 
state legislatures assured the 
Social Democrats of a contin- 
ued two-thirds majority in the 
upper house, which represents 
the states and has to approve all 

legislation before it can become 

“Nothing can be done over 
the next four years without the 
Social Democratic Party” Mr. 
Scharping said. 

Regarding the durability of 
Mr. Kohl’s unstable majority, 
he said, “I would bet on two 
years rather than four.” 

Mr. Scharping plans to run 
again for chancellor in 1998; 
Mr. Kohl said he would not. 

Neither Mr. Scharping nor 
Mr. Kohl gave any encourage- 
ment to talk of a formal “grand 
coalition” that would unite 
their parties. 

Politicians of both parties 
said they were encouraged by 
the poor showing of the radical 
rightist Republican Party, 
which was resurgent only a few 
years ago, when hundreds of 
thousands of foreign asylum- 
seekers and immigrants' were 
pouring into the country and 
the major parties seemed to be 
ignoring the unease the influx 
was causing. 

The Republicans won only 
1.9 percent of the national vote 

“They have become a com- 
pletely insignificant splinter 


Berlusconi Mafia Remarks Draw Fire 

ROME (Reuters) — Opposition politicians sharply criticized 
Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi on Monday for saying the Mafia 
was on insignificant force. 

The leftist opposition in Parliament, whose main force is i for 
former Communists, now known as the Democratic Party of the 

Left, d emand ed that the prime minister appear before the legists, 
lure’s anti-Mafia commission to explain bs comments. Mr. Ber- 
lusconi's remarks, made in Moscow during a visit on Oct. 14 and 
15. received wide coverage in Italian newspapers mi Sunday. 

“In Italy, the reality of the Mafia is nothing in comparison to 
the reality of good, hard-working people,'* Mr. Berlusconi was 
quoted as' saying. 'The Mafia is probably one ten-thousandth or 
one-miBionth of 56 million Italians," he said. "Are we going to let 
about 100 people give the world a negative image of Italy?” 

Afghan Election Plan Is Rejected 

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) — Opponents of the Afghan 
president, Burbanuddin Rabbani, rejected his plan on Monday 

Peer □non/ Agence France' Prase 

for a traditional assembly to elect his successor and launched a 
rocket attack on Kabul that official radio said killed four people. 

Mr. Rabbani and three other mujahidin leaders announced aa 
agreement to convene the Loya Jirga, or grand assembly, to deci 
the next president. But the plan rules out any role for General 
Abdul Rashid Dustaxo, leader of the country's largest militia and 
a major ally of Prime Minister Gulbuddin Hekmatyar in iheanti- 
Rabbani Supreme Coordination Council. 

Militias controlled by Mr. Hekmatyar and General Dustaxn

people and wounding 17, Kabul radio said.

New NATO Chiefs No. 1 Goal: East as Partners 

The Associated Press 

BRUSSELS — NATO’s new secre- 
tary-general began his job on Monday by 
saying that the Western alliance should 
give top priority to extending its “securi- 
ty and stability" to former foes in East- 
ern Europe. 

Willy Claes, on his first day in the 
North Atlantic Treaty Organization's 
top civilian post, said the West should 
work with its “new partners to the East” 
to widen the security community. 

“This is a historic duty, and I consider 
its realization the No. 1 goal of my ten- 
ure,” said Mr. Claes, who was previously 
Belgium’s foreign minister. 

Mr. Claes was chosen by the Atlantic 
alliance's 16 member nations to succeed 
Manfred Worrier of Germany, who died 
of cancer in August after six years as 

Mr. Claes did not refer to differences 
among the allies over the pace of opening;

Warsaw Pact.

and other former East bloc nations clam-

is considered an attack on all. 

Mr. Claes also avoided direct com- 
ment on the latest disagreement between 
NATO and the United Nations over the 
scope of allied action in Bosnia.

something of a rage among the states, 
too, since it was introduced in 1983 by 
federal prison officials.

such prisons. Ail involve techniques 
that limit the movement of dangerous 
prisoners beyond their cells to an hour 
or less a day, and then only with leg- 
irons, handcuffs and an escort of two 
or three guards per inmate. 

This approach, resorted to after the 
murders of federal corrections officers 
by hard-core inma tes sentenced to 
prison for life, is a stale of individual- 
ized captivity. Less than 1 percent of 
inmates are subjected to its rigors, but 
it operates as a systemwide, worst-case 
deterrent in focusing on inmates rated 
unusually disruptive, predatory or es- 

The new prison here further limits 
the risks of mobility by providing each 
inmate his own in-cell showra stall, 
with flood-proof plumbing controlled 
by monitoring guards. And each has 
his own television set, but in strict 
black-and-white on a 12-inch (30-cen- 
timeter) screen lest law-abiding tax- 
payers be roused by the notion of a 
felon free to stare at life in living color.

In front of his headquarters 
in San Diego, Brian Bilbray, a 
Republican who is trying to un- 
seat Representative Lynn 
Schenk, a first-term Democrat 
also sounded a conservative call 
to arms: “The public is really in 
a state of mind where it’s ready 
for a revolution.” 

Yet he, too, was reluctant to 
make too much of the contract 
asserting that its goals “are not 
exactly the Ten Command- 

Mr. Gingrich’s strategy in 
trying to “nationalize" the elec- 
tions has as much to do with 
trying to set a course for those 
Republicans who win as influ- 
encing the races in which they 
are running. 

Mr. Bilbray, a county super- 
visor, asserted that even if the 
Republicans did not win the 40 
seats they need to take control 
of the House, their ideology 
would eventually triumph. 

“A lot of Democrats will start 
changi n g their approach to pol- 
icy-making,” he said. 

But as a campaign tactic, it is 
the Democrats — eager to shift 
the political dialogue from at- 
tacks on Mr. Clinton — who are 
trying to keep the contract alive 
so they can depict Republicans 
as in lockstep with their leaders 
in foolishly advocating 
warmed-over Reaganomics. 

No one has tried to draw the 
line more sharply than Mr. 
Clinton, who has derided the 
contract in recent days as a re- 
turn to “failed policies of the 
past.” A new advertising cam- 
paign by the Democratic Na- 
tional Committee stresses the 
same point. 

The shift is particularly ap- 

S nt in Senate races, where 
rblican nominees are gen- 
y far more conservative 
than in decades. 

Here in Indiana, the 36-year- 
old Mr. McIntosh went so far as 
to lump Mr. Bush with Mr. 
Clinton, asserting that there are 
“similarities between Bush and 
Clinton” in that the core ideolo- 
gy of each man can be hard to 
pm down.

WASHINGTON — With u solid week of campaigning 
under their bells and jus! three more to go before voters cast 
their ballots. White House officials have shed some of the 
gloom ihai hung over their view of the midterm election. 

"At least.” said one White House official, "we've gotten 
beyond the stage of feeling we had to just hide here arid sa> 
nothing. We're back on offense.” 

After seeming uncertain for weeks about what to sa\ to 
voters in the wake of a disastrous congressional finale. Presi- 
dent Bill Clinton now has a theme hcTs comfortable with — 
that voters should not allow Republicans to return the coun- 
try to the economic policies of the NSUs. 

At the same time, a week of good news on the foreign- 
policy front — the apparent backing down of Saddam Hus- 
sein in Iraq, coupled with the return of President Jean- 
Ben rand Aristide to Haiti — max have boosted Mr. Clinton. 

But even as his short-term prospects brighten. Mr. Clin- 
ton's aides acknowledge the king-term view is grim. 

Mr. Clinton came into office with a dear project in mind - 
to rebuild American faith in government, a faith that had 
been shattered by the Vietnam War. Watergate, social decay 
in the cities and two decades of slow income growth for 
middle-income families. 

Measured by how well they have met that goal. Clinton 
aides admit, their administration so far has failed. "We've 
really lost two years." a White House official said. “We're no 
closer than when we started." < LAT 1 

Clinton Takes the Middle Road on Judges 

WASHINGTON — While running for office two years 
ago. Bill Clinton promised to reshape the character of the 
federal courts, reversing the trend to the right under the 
Reagan and Bush administrations. 

But given the opportunity to choose more judges in his first 
two years than any president in history . Mr. Clinton has made 
selections that are not expected to change the hue 
of the bench, although they have won' high praise Tor their 
diversity and quality. 

The large number of judges who won confirmation in the 
final days of the Senate term brought Mr. Clinton's appoint- 
ments to a total of 129. of whom almost 60 percent are either 
women or minorities, compared with S percent lor President 
Ronald Reagan and 27 percent for President Jimmy Carter. 

Political scientists, legal scholars and nonpartisan groups 
like the American Bar Association who have studied the new 
judges’ records also said Mr. Clinton's choices were better 
qualified than those of Mr. Reagan or President George Bush. 

But. perhaps paradoxically, those observers expected the 
newcomers would do little to 'alter the courts. The new judges 
were deliberately chosen to fit squarely in the judicial m.iiu- 
stream and were, by and large, replacing liberal Democrats. 

While Mr. Clinton's appointments are not expected to 
undo the effects of the Republican years, according to legal 
experts, the crime legislation the administration pushed 
through Congress last month is expected to give a tremendous 
new impetus to a decade-long trend of transforming relatively 
minor infractions — historically the province of state courts 
— into federal offenses. 

Justice Department officials said that as a result of the new 
law. they expected a significant increase in the prosecution in 
the federal courts of cases involving teen-agers with handguns 
and gang violence. , .V YT '

government's watchdog agency, 
die General Accounting Office, 
has strayed from its original 
fact-finding mission and tar- 
nished its reputation for objec- 
tivity by becoming an advocate 
for policy changes, an indepen- 
dent evaluation of the agency 

The study, in effect an audit 
of the government’s top audi- 
tors, was issued last week by a 
panel of experts from the Na- 
tional Academy of Public Ad- 
ministration, a nonprofit orga- 
nization chartered by Congress 
to increase the effectiveness of 
government at the federal, state 
and local levels. 

Lawmakers continually cite 
the accounting office’s findings 
in deciding whether to create, 
abolish, cut or revise programs. 
But in recent years, legislators 
of both parties have expressed 
concern that the agency some- 
times seemed more eager to 
make policy pronouncements 
than simply to provide informa- 

Republicans in particular 
have complained that the ac- 
counting office has become a 
tool of Democrats in Congress. 

The agency issues reports on 
many volatile issues, including 
health care, immigration ana 
trade. It alerted Congress to 
problems in the savings and 
loan industry long before most 
people were aware of them. It 
has documented problems in 
dozens of weapons programs 
like the Bigeye chemical bomb. 

the B-2 bomber and the Seawolf 

The bead of the accounting 
office. Comptroller General 
Charles A. Bowsher, defended 
the agency’s independence and 
said, “We" always strive to pre- 
sent our findings in a balanced 
manner.” He added that the 
agency's recommendations 
were never based on “political 
or ideological considerations.” 

The study described the ac- 
counting office as an invaluable 
institution and found “no evi- 
dence of deliberate partisan 
bias” in its work. 

But it said the office “seems 
to be exceeding its appropriate 
role” by venturing mto the 
analysis and development or 
public policy. 

The report found “no evi- 
dence that GAO has been steer- 
ing its research toward satisfy- 
ing particular policy or partisan 

But it said the accounting of- 
fice “should not risk its reputa- 
tion for objectivity by moving 
into policy advocacy." 

The report recommended 
that the agency be more selec- 
tive about the kind of work it 
takes on and said Congress 
should be more careful about 
the kinds of requests it makes of 
the agency. 

With 4.581 employees, 26 
field offices and a budget of 
$443 million this year, the ac- 
counting office is busier than 
ever. It issued 1,115 reports and 
4,200 legal rulings last year. It 
estimates it has saved *3107.6 
billion for the government over 
the last five years.

Hanoi and Beijing Swap Claims 
Of Violations in Gulf of Tonkin 

Agave Frtvue-Prase 

HANOI — Tension rose 
abruptly between China and 
Vietnam on Monday after Ha- 
noi accused Beijing of “system- 
atic and unacceptable” viola- 
tions in the Gulf of To nkin. 

Reacting to official protests 
from Beijing over the disputed, 
area, the Foreign Ministry also 
warned that Vietnam reserved 
its right to “defend its territorial 
waters” should they come un- 
der threat 

“Vietnam has already made 
it clear to China that Chinese 
fishing boats have systematical- 
ly violated not only our exclu- 
sive economic zone, but also 
our territorial waters," a minis- 
try spokesman said. 

The ministry assailed China’s 
territorial claims in the Gulf of 

.calling the 
of the United Nations Maritime 

Convention and “the sovereign- 
ty of Vietnam's exclusive eco- 
nomic zone and its continental 

The criticism came just over a 
month before President Jiang 
Zemin is to make the first visit 
to Vietnam by a Chinese head 
of state since the two countries 
agreed to set aside their differ- 
ences and normalize relations 
three years ago. 

Last week, China filed an of- 
ficial protest with Vietnam, and 
a Foreign Ministry spokesman 
accused Hanoi of “gross viola- 
tions of its rights and sovereign- 
ty" in the Gulf of Tonkin. 

Beijing was angered that Ha- 
noi had sought offers from for- 
eign companies to develop oil 
deposits in the disputed area. 

China’s anger has been espe- 
cially roused by Vietnamese de- 
velopment plans in the central 

part of the Gulf of Tonkin and 
waters adjacent to the Chinese 
bland of Hainan. 

In June, Vietnam’s National 
Assembly ratified the 1982 UN 
Maritime Convention on ocean 
rights, an accord that Hanoi 
says legitimizes its claim to sov- 
ereignty over areas of the gulf 
and the “Eastern Sea,” known 
to the Chinese as the South Chi- 
na Sea. 

The two countries began dis- 
cussions on demarcation in the 
Gulf of Tonkin after Prime 
Minister Li Peng of China visit- 
ed Vietnam in December 1992. 
but there has been no resolu- 

Since then, the Vietnamese 
state concern PetroVietnam has 
been charged with canying out 
oil exploration in part of the 
contested area, in association 
with foreign companies. 

Singapore Police Question 
U.S. Scholar on Commentary 


pore-based American scholar 
who wrote a newspaper opinion 
piece criticizing Asian govern- 
ments was questioned by the 
Singapore police on Monday, 
the professor said. 

The American, Christopher 
Lingle, a senior fellow in Euro- 
pean studies at the state-run 
National University of Singa- 
pore, said he was questioned for 
90 minutes in his office by two 
Singapore police officers. 

Singapore Ministry of Home 
Affairs and police spokesmen 
were not immediately available 
for comment. 

Professor Lingle, a 46-year- 
old Atlanta native, said the in-

vestigators . were accompanied 
by a university officiaL Profes- 
sor Lingle said the officers told 
him that they were conducting 
an investigation into charges of 
contempt of court and cr iminal 
defamation based on a com- 
mentary he wrote that was pub- 
lished Ocl 7 in the Internation- 
al Herald Tribune. 

The article, titled “The 
Smoke Over Parts of Asia Ob- 
scures Some Profound Con- 
cerns,” disputed an opinion 
piece by a Singapore Ministry 
of Foreign Affairs official pub- 
lished in the Herald Tribune on 
Ocl 1. Professor Lingle's com- 
mentary referred to unidenti- 
fied “intolerant regimes in the 
region” and made critical com- 
ments about the judiciary in 

The interrogators asked for 
Professor lingle’s original tran- 
script and also for his research 
documents, he said. Professor 

Lingle said he handed over 
about 100 periodicals — includ- 
ing The Far Eastern Economic 
Review, The Asian Wall Street 
Journal and The Economist — 
both from his office and later 
from his home when the officers 
met him there. 

Professor Lingle said he was 
questioned intensively on 
whether a reasonable person 
would conclude that his article 
had impugned thejudiciaiy and 
undermined general order in 
Singapore. He said he agreed to 
meet the officers again on Tues- 
day morning to hand over his 
original manuscript. 

Professor Lingle is 13 months 
into a two-year contract at the 
National University. He said 
that he had published about 12 
articles in the international 
press in the last year but that 
this was the first tim e he has 
been directly questioned by the

With Korea

GENEVA — Negotiations 
between Lhe United States and 
North Korea on Pyongyang's

deadlocked Monday with no

hour session among technical

diplomatic mission said that no

In Beijing, Defense Minister 
Chi Haotian told Defense Sec- 
retary William J. Perry that 
China would try to use i is good

“There is a desire on the part 
of the Chinese that Lhe Korean 
Peninsula remain nonnuclear." 
a U.S. official said after the 
meeting. “They do not want to

China is a traditional ally of 
Communist North Korea and 
so could be used to mediate in 
the dispute. 

The talks are aimed at flesh- 
ing out an outline accord, 
reached in August. In that 
agreement, Pyongyang offered 
to open up its nuclear facilities 
to international inspection and 
scrap its atomic power pro- 
gram, which uses old-fashioned 
technology that can produce 
bomb-making plutoni um 

In return, Washington of- 
fered low-level diplomatic links 
and help in providing North 
Korea with more modern nucle- 
ar power plants. 

Since then, little progress has 
been made. 

Hopes of an imminent break- 
through early Saturday were 
dashed that evening when a 
meeting ended in acrimony. 

The chief U.S. negotiator, 
Robert L. Gallucci, had an un- 
scheduled meeting with his 
North Korean counterpart, 
Kang Sok Ju, on Sunday, but to 
no avail.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — President 
Jean- Benrand Aristide renewed his appeal 
Monday for justice and reconciliation, just 
hours after a mob burned Lhe home of the 
mother of the new army commander. 

The mob burned the house belonging to 
the mother of Major General Jean-CLaude 
Duperval after a false rumor circulated 
late Sunday that G eneral Duperval had 
tried to assassinate Father Aristide. 

At least nine other houses and five stores 
also were burned in the city of Gonaives, 
including a house belonging to the grand- 
mother of a former junta leader. Lieuten- 
ant Colonel Joseph Michel Francois, and 
the homes of at least five noncommis- 
sioned officers. 

U.S. and Haitian security forces arrest- 
ed more than 100 people in Gonaives after 
the violence, a U.S. military official said 

The violence illustrated the daunting 
challenge Father Aristide faces in bringing 
Haiti into a new era of democracy. 

Father Aristide summoned General Du- 
perval to the National Palace on Sunday to 
discuss how io dismantle the military.* in- 
cluding cutting the army rosier b> SO per- 

As several hundred Haitians waited out- 
side, unfounded rumors spread that the 
army chief had tried to kill Father Aristide. 

When General Duperval left, the crowd 
yelled and pounded on his car. Some in the 
crowd, carrying sticks and machetes, 
shouted: “Give us Duperval! We don’t 
want the army anymore!” 

On Sunday, two people were hacked to 
death as Aristide backers dashed with 
their former oppressors. At least 3,000 
people were killed under repressive mili- 
tary rule after Father Aristide was over- 
thrown in a coup in September 1991. 

In the Cite Soldi slum of Port-au- 
Prince, the Aristide stronghold that had 
often been targeted by the army, two doz- 
en Aristide supporters went on a machete- 
wielding rampage Sunday against mem- 
bers of the Front for the Advancement and 
Progress of Haiti. That pararoSitaty group 
killed and brutalized many Aristide sup- 

When the vigilantes found one member 
of the group, Lorreuis Francois, they 
bloodied his wife’s face and tore her dress 
as she appealed to them to leave her hus- 
band alone. 

A neighbor persuaded them to leave. 
Less than two hours later, witnesses said, 
Mr. Francois came outside and angrily 
stuck a machete into the first person he 
saw, a pull-cart driver named Jean, killing 

The vigilantes returned and killed Mr. 

Frangcris, then burned a Haitian Army 
helmet and an olive drab umftinxa they 
found in his home. 

Father Aristide plans to trim the esti- 
mated 7,450-member armed : forces to

unclear. Some army office

In West Bank , Approval of the Kidnappers 5 Goal 

By Alan Cowell 

New York Tima Service 

AMARJ, Israeli-Occupied West 
Bask — When Nachshon Waxman. 
the Israeli soldier killed after being 
abducted by Islamic militants, was 
buried, thousands of Israelis poured 
into the darkness of the Mount Herzl 
military cemetery at midnight to 
mourn a man they considered their 
latest martyr. 

A Palestinian mother of four in this 
refugee camp near the West Bank 
town of Ramallah saw things in a 
different light. 

She preferred to focus not so much 
on the violent outcome — three kid- 
nappers and another Israeli soldier 
also died in the rescue attempt last 
Friday — as the stated goal of the 
hostage-talcing: to force the release of 
Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails 
in mum for the soldier’s life. 

“We have families who have lost 
their sons, we have families with rela- 
tives in prison, we have families who 
paid the price of occupatio said the 
woman, who identified bcx&elf as Oum 
Ashraf, meaning mother of Ashraf. 

“So. people can justify that kidnap- 
ping,” die said. "It was legitimate. 
Thor sons are dear to them, and our 
sons are dear to us.” 


Accord Is Initialed 

Cantoned from Pugt 1 

flown to Amman after a week 
dominated in Israel by the ab- 
duction and killing of an Israeli 
soldier by militants from the 
Islamic movement Hamas. 

The episode, which ended 
with the killing of the Israeli 
captive, another Israeli soldier 
and three Hamas guerrillas, 
seemed to highlight the prob- 
lems of Israel’s agreement with 
the PLO, many of them stem- 
ming from Palestinian militants 
opposed to peace. 

The initialing of the draft did 
not represent the end of negoti- 

On Tuesday, officials from 
the two sides are to begin de- 
tailed taflrs on annexes to the 
treaty in the Jordanian. Red Sea 
port of Aqaba. Israel radio said 
the final signing ceremony 
would take place on Oct 27 in 
the bonier area between EDat 
*• and Aqaba. The agreement has 
also to be ratified by both par- 
liaments, an act regarded as a 

Of the outstanding issues, 
water was the most far-reach- 

According to Jordanian ac- 
counts, bout Israel and Syria 

Palestinians here and elsewhere in 
the West Bank echoed her view. None 
seemed ready to follow Yasser Arafat, 
the head of the Palestine liberation 
Organization, in condemning the kid- 
napping, which was carried out by 
members of the militant Islami c group 

Their comments seemed to under- 
score a familiar collision of percep- 
tions here: Actions that appear as 
atrocities to one side are often inter- 
preted by the other as appropriate 
moves in a legitimate struggle. 

“What do the occupiers expect of 
us?” said Gbassan Safi, 25. a sociology 
student at Bir Zeit University, near 

The kidnapping ended when Israeli 
forces stormed a house just north of 
Jerusalem in the village of Bir Naba- 
lah. The Israeli authorities say the 
kidnappers killed Nachshon Wax- 
man, who was promoted posthumous- 
ly from corporal to sergeant. 

The episode brought new strains to 
the settlement between the PLO and 
Israel, which permits limited self-rule 
in the Gaza Strip and Jericho. 

Israel at first masted that its soldier 
was being held in Gaza, not Israeli- 

occupied territory. Under pressure 
from the Israelis, the Palestinian po- 
lice rounded up hundreds of the Is- 
lamic militants in Gaza who oppose 
the agreement with Israel. 

For some Palestinians, this was a 
new setb;u.k to Mr. Arafat’s credibil- 

“Arafat is in bad shape,” sad Ibra- 
him Saeed, 30, who sells shoes. “He is 
embarrassed because the Israelis 
made him their tooL He became an 
instrument, not a decision-maker.” 

The 60-year-old co-owner of a taxi 
company in Ramall ah said, “The 
hopes which Arafat gave us as a result 
of this settlement are going to disap- 

A woman in this refugee camp who 
identified herself as Oum Abed said; 
“There are limits to everything, and 
Arafat has reached his limits because 
the Israelis didn’t give in n anything 
They didn't give him the opportunity 
to achieve peace.” 

At the core of the frustration of 
many Palestinians lies Israel's refusal 
to release more of the thousands of 
prisoners it is holding. That is another 
reason why many Palestinians were 
prepared to support the abduction of 
Corporal Waxman, people said. 

“They express their support for this 
act by Hamas because they look at it 
from one angle — the angle of the 
prisoners,” said Ahmed Deck, a senior 
member of Mr. Arafat’s Fatah move- 
ment in the West Bank 

“Every woman wants to see her son 
released, and if this isn't resolved the 
kidnappings will continue,” said Oum 
Abed, who has six sons and four 
daughters. She said one of her sons 
had died in the uprising and the other 
five had all been detained by Israel at 
one time or anoLher. 

But there are other considerations 
that touch on basic ways of doing 
business. Where Israeli leaders insist, 
as Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin did 
Friday night, that there can be no 
bargaining with terrorists, many Pal- 
estinians felt there was still time to 

, “Our understanding was that there 
could be an extension of the ul tima - 
tum," Mr. Deck said. 

Ibrahim Barghoutti. a lawyer in Ra- 
mallah said that “Mr. Rabin made a 
very big mistake.” 

“He could have tried a political 
way,” he said, “but he chose the mili- 
tajy way, and it came to a veiy bad

Iran’s Caviar Output Drops 

Agence Franu-Presse 

TEHRAN — Iran's caviar production is expected to fall for 
the third consecutive year by about 10 percent because 
poaching and pollution are exhausting fish stocks in the 
Caspian Sea, a fisbmg official said Monday. 

The official said in the Kayhan newspaper that the produc- 
tion of caviar could fall by another 15 tons this year. Iran 
produced 130 tons of caviar in 1993, compared with 180 tons 
in 1992 and 200 tons in 1991. 

Experts have blamed pollution and illegal fishing in Iran 
and the former Soviet republics bordering the Caspian Sea for 
the depleted stocks of sturgeon from which caviar is derived. 
They estimate that 1 million sturgeon are being caught illegal- 
ly each year.

Labor Rights in Indonesia 

The Clinton administration is having a 
hard time deciding whether to impose 
modest trade sanctions against Indonesia 
for denying workers their basic rights. 
First it demanded changes by February 
. 1994. Then it let that deadline pass and 
dropped formal scrutiny of Indonesia’s 
performance for six months. Now it 
-seems ready to delay any action until 
after President Bill Clinton visits Jakarta 
next month for the Asia-Pacific summit 
meeting. Such protracted delay helps no 
one. The administration should tell Indo- 
nesia now what it still needs to do and set 
a firm deadline for doing it. 

As a low-income developing country. 
Indonesia is eligible for reduced tariffs on 
certain products through a program called 
the General System of Preferences, or 
GSP. About $900 mil H on in Indonesian 
exports entered the United States under 
this program last year. But by U.S. law, 
countries benefiting from GSP are re- 
quired to take steps to accord their citizens 
internationally recognized labor rights. 

In Indonesia’s case that means getting 
the army out of labor disputes and letting 
workers form independent unions. As the 
February deadline approached, Indonesia 
promised Washington it would take mean- 
ingful steps in both areas. It has had eight 
months to put those promises into effect. 

A U.S. investigative i<am recently vis- 
. ited Indonesia to assess compliance. Its 
findings are not yet available. Human 
rights groups report some progress, but 
they say that the military still interferes 
in labor matters and the government is 
still trying to crush the main indepen- 
dent union. Last month. 28 members of 
Congress urged the Clinton administra- 

tion to revoke Indonesia's GSP benefits. 

But the GSP debate is now taking place 
in a radically changed context In May, 
the Clinton administration dropped ml 
human rights conditions on trade with 
China. As repressive as Indonesia’s labor 
policies are, they are less harsh than Bei- 
jing’s. In recent weeks. Commerce Secre- 
tary Ron Brown has called for expanding 
trade with China and Indonesia, ignoring 
human rights concerns. The message is 
clear: Washington’s human rights talk 
need not be taken seriously. 

If President Clinton wants to salvage 
any credibility on rights, he needs to 
modify that cynical message at once. 

Withholding trade benefits is an ap- 
propriate tool Tor punishing labor abuses, 
winch offend human rights and confer 
unfair trade advantages to the violator. In 
the case of the General System of Prefer- 
ences, upholding labor standards is re- 
quired by law. Bui if the administration 
sincerely believes that trade and develop- 
ment are the best ways to advance human 
rights, other forms of pressure axe avail- 
able. These include outspoken diploma- 
cy, votes in the UN Human Rights Com- 
mission and restrictions on military 
tr aining and sales for countries whose 
armed forces are involved in human 
rights abuse. The latest foreign aid bill 
specifically instructs U.S. representatives 
in multilateral development banks like 
the World Bank to take worker rights into 
account when they cast their votes. 

Right now, the administration seems at 
a loss over human rights policy. Renewing 
the pressure on Indonesia over labor rights 
could help it find its way again. 


Merely Politics as Usual? 

Newt Gingrich, the House Republican 
whip and would-be speaker if the Republi- 
cans win control of that body next month, 
blurted out some remarkable statements 
the other day during a session with lobby- 
ists on Capitol HI1L They raise a lot of 
questions about what the House might be 
like under Mr. Gingrich’s leadership. 

For example, when he was killing a bill 
that would have cut off the free golf trips 
and other lobbyists’ gifts to members of 
Congress, he wrapped himself in the man- 
tle of religious liberty, encouraging talk 
show hosts to assail the needed Legislation 
on the false ground that it would inhibit 
the speech rights of religious groups. 

But he told the Capitol Hill gathering 
that Republicans planned to raise money 
from — you guessed it — lobbyists, by 
saying that ins party had saved them 
from ‘•S talinis t** and “punitive’' measures 
supported by Democrats. Presumably, it 
is “Stalinist” to require lobbyists to dis- 
close some of their activities to the voters 
and to prohibit them from sending their 
favorite congresspeople on tennis jaunts. 

Mr. Gingrich, who talks a good game 
about the need for “change” and an end to 
“corruption” on Capitol Hill, seemed to 
relish the prospect of telling lobbyists that 
he had preserved their way of life and that 
erf freebie-taking members of Congress. 

Or take his statement that his strategy 
in the campaign was to portray pro-Clin- 
ton Democrats as “the enemy of normal 
Americans.” Ann Devroy and Charles 
Babcock of The Washington Post asked 

him about this statement, and he said he 
should have used the word “threat” in 
place of “enemy.” Either way, where does 
a politician who wants to exercise sub- 
stantial power get off deciding who is and 
who isn’t a “normal” American? 

Mr. Gingrich argues that the closer 
Republicans get to control of the House, 
the more uneasy “Washington” gets over 
the prospect of having all that power in 
the hands of the Republican Party. That 
is certainly true of Democrats in the 
House, but something that transcends 
partisanship is going on here. The closer 
Mr. Gingrich gets to the top, the more 
reckless he seems to become. He spoke, 
for example, of having 20 task forces or 
subcommittees at work investigating al- 
leged White House corruption, although 
he later admitted that 20 was “not a 
serious number.” Indeed. 

Mr. Gingrich rose to fame by attacking 
the House Democrats for abusing power. 
In a number of those cases, we agreed with 
him. Most recently, we argued that Demo- 
crats have been too eager to restrict the 
ability of House Republicans to amend 
bills and broaden the debate. But, as the 
prospect of Republican control of the 
House has loomed larger. Mr. Gingrich 
has appeared ever more interested in tak- 
ing the same old partisanship he used to 
decry and simply directing it toward his 
own ends. His comments suggest, for all 
his rhetorical flourishes, that the last thing 
he wants is an end to politics as usual 

Televise the Simpson Trial 

Angry over an inaccurate news report 
about the O.J. Simpson murder case, 
Judge Lance Ito has suggested that he 
may not allow cameras at the trial. The 
law gives him broad power to forbid or 
control courtroom cameras, but it would 
be most unfortunate for justice if he let 
his anger decide the issue. This celebrated 
case, however much glitz has attached to 
it, needs to be televised. 

With or without camera coverage of 
the trial the Simpson case is plagued by 
global attention and pretrial publicity 
that complicates the process of picking 
an impartial jury. But even the inaccurate 
and damaging news stories argue for 
camera coverage, not against. 

Nor would denial of camera coverage 
have any effect on the behavior of news 
organizations or their sources outside the 
courtroom. Indeed, one erf the virtues of 
courtroom photography is the literal ac- 
curacy of what the pictures and sound 
portray. Partisans and reporters may 
shout their interpretations from the 
courthouse steps, but once the trial is 
under way the audience will be able to see 
for itself what is happening. 

Even in the pretrial proceedings the 
public, unable to attend, mis learned much 
that the print medium cannot fully convey 
— about trial procedures, evidence, the 
role of a judge, lawyers and their argu- 
ments, and how they all interact Another 
point: For all the friction among the law- 

yers, neither side is seeking the blackout 
that Judge Ito is considering. The single 
video camera itself is unobtrusive. If there 
are potential jurors anxious to serve for the 
fame it may bring them, they will not 
achieve it from trial cameras, for no pic- 
tures erf the jurors are allowed. 

The very factors that raise the question 
of camera coverage compel the answer 
that the public must be allowed to wit- 
ness the trial: the accused is famous and 
rich, the alleged crime atrocious. Can all 
parties get justice? The public needs as- 
surance that justice is bang done. 

Judge Ito points to mail from citizens 
who have overdosed on O. J. Simpson and 
want less, not more, television about him. 
The judge must realise that such sentiment 
will not satisfy the need for public justice 
publicly observed, and that a blackout 
would not stem the torrent of stories. 

For all the judge’s undoubted power, his 
understandable rage at some of these cir- 
cumstances does not authorize him to act 
out of pique or withdraw court access 
because of the content of a news report 
Banning television is unjust punishment 
for sloppy news coverage in the past and is 
no antidote at ah to the breathless journal- 
ism that will surely come later. The public 
inevitably will judge the quality of justice 
in this case. A more satisfying public judg- 
ment will result if the public can see and 
hear what the jury sees and hears.

Germany: More of the Old Kohl , Only Even Stodgier 

M UNICH — The boring 

ended in a down-to-the-wire fin 
and the status quo won. 

Chancellor Helmut Kohl has not only 
beaten his Soda! Democratic rival Ru- 
dolf Scharping. He is also set to outdo his 
much admired mentor Konrad Adenau- 
er, the founding father of the Federal 
Republic. Adenauer ran West Germany 
for 14 years. If his heir, with 12 years in 
power ’already, manages to avoid an un- 
timely demise, be it of the political or the 
biological kind, he will be able to pack in 
up to 16 years — more than Fr anklin D. 
Roosevelt and almost as much as the 
’’Iron Chancellor” Otto von Bismarck, 
who tallied 19 years. 

In your average democracy. 12 years 
should have been enough. It would have 
been “time for a change,” and all that. 
Hence the really interesting point about 
this election is not the slender margin of 
Mr. Kohl’s victory but the fact itself. 

Half a year ago, Mr. Scharping looked 
like a shoo-in. Mr. Kohl and bos Chris- 
tian Democrats looked hopeless, and so 
did his junior coalition partners, the 
Free Democrats under Foreign Minister 
Klaus Kinkel So by international stan- 
dards this was the greatest comeback 
since Richard Nixon’s in 1 968. 

How did Mr. Kohl do it? It was not 
really he who turned the tide, but the 
two usual suspects in democratic poli- 
tics: the strength of the economy and 
the weakness of his rival. 

By early summer, the business cycle 
pointed up, up, up. It was a real upswing, 
not the kind of faltering one that failed to 
push George Bush past Bill Clinton in 
1992. Starting in the summer, good news 
tumbled in almost daily, robbing Mr. 
Scharping of a sure- win issue by the fall. 
As growth, export and investment figures 
headed north, so did Mr. Kohl's populari- 
ty ratings. In the end, he had put 14 points 
between himself and Mr. Scharping. 

The second usual suspect was the So- 
cial Democratic contender: young, inex- 
perienced, a bit clumsy under the klieg 
lights, and not firmly in control of his 
party, whose heart beat farther left than 
Mr. Scharping 1 s. 

Also, he had a “Hillary problem.” No. 
not his real-life wife but his partner in 
political marriage, the Greens, who re- 
turned to the Bundestag with 73 percent 
of the vote. With their anti-NATO, pro- 
pacifist posture and radical economic 
agenda — for example, 5 marks (S3.3 
dollars) for a liter of gas — the Greens 
were just a bit too much for your average

cozy place in the Western allian ce 

So Mr. Scharping won a few points, 
but not enough to unseal Mr. Kohl who 
will now have to make do with a slender 
majority. That is good news for the rest 
of the world, which must have breathed a 
sigh of relief from Washington via Brus- 
sels to Bratislava. 

Mr. Kohl is a dyed-in-the-wool Euro- 
peanisi, perhaps the last in a long succes- 
sion from Konrad Adenauer to Helmut 
Schmidt. He is also a good Atlanticist, 
always careful to *jve unto Paris without 
taking from Washington. He stands (more 
or less) for free trade, and wants (more or 
less) to open the West's doors to the East 
Europeans. And he is not gripped by ob- 
sessive angst when it comes to fielding the 
army for a peace mission here or there. 

The only true surprise in this election 
was the astounding score of the PDS, the 
successor of the East German Commu- 
nists who presided over the Prusso- 
Marxist enterprise known as the GDR. 
The “Party of Democratic Socialism” 
will field 30 stalwarts in the new Bundes- 
tag. But with their deep-red rhetoric they 
will mainly embarrass the center left, the 
Social Democrats and the Greens. 

The PDS represents the revolt of the 
dispossessed nomenklatura and the re- 
sentment of reunification's losers. But 
Eastern Germany is forging ahead at an 8 
percent growth rate, and so it is likely to 
be swan song time for the PDS in the next 
general election, in 1998 at the latest 

The problem lies elsewhere. Not only 
must Mr. Kohl govern with no votes to 
spare; in effect he must rule with (he 
consent of a grand coalition. Germany 
being a federal construction, there is be- 
sides the Bundestag a kind of Senate rep- 

resenting the states. There, in the Bundcs- 
rai. Social Democrats will have a blocking 
for all essential legislation. 

in the Conference Committee, functioning 
like a two-party cartel Mr. Scharping will 
'be axbancdibr, and that means at best 
compromise tiber altes, at worst stalemate 
and immobility. So much for the German 
leadership that the rest of Europe regards 
with both desire and dread. 

There will not be much cause for cither 
of those emotions, not with the kind of 
Germany emerging from Sunday’s elec- 
tions. Germany will be what Germany 
was: s l ugg ish , centrist, more modest titan 
its clout might suggest. And that is not 
bad in a world that does not exactly 
suffer from a surfeit of political stability. 



More Voice for the East, and Surprises Ahead 

B ERLIN — Helmut Kohl has emerged 
as the winner of the German elec- 
tions, but his government already has the 
look of a lame duck. 

Normally, a 10-vote majority in the 
Bundestag' would be enough. Not this 
time. Mr. Kohl has to work with a junior 
partner that was left half-dead by the 
elections Sunday. The Free Democrats 
managed to return to Parliament, with 6.9 
percent of the vote, but there were strong 
warning signals. In three Lander elections 
Sunday, they remained under the S per- 
cent barrier. If this trend continues, as it 
seems certain to do. the coalition won't 
survive more than two years. 

Rudolf Scharping. leader of the oppo- 
sition Social Democratic Party, therefore 
can expect an invitation to form a “grand 
coalition” with the Christian Democrats 
— possibly with a successor to Mr. Kohl. 
Wolfgang Schauble is a strong prospect. 

Only by riding the chancellor's coat- 
tails were the Christian Democrats able 
to get 41 3 percent of the vote — not bad. 
but too little to assure smooth sailing. 

The big surprise for Western Germans 
was the showing of the Party of Demo- 
cratic Socialism, successor party to the old 
Communist Party of East Germany, 
which won directly in four districts. This 
entitles them to enter Parliament with 30 
seats. The PDS now appears sure to be a 

By Jochen Thies 

permanent factor in German politics. This 
points to a leftward shift for Germany's 
political majority in years ahead. 

The third partner in this game, along 
with the Social Democrats, will be the 
Greens, who staged a nationwide politi- 
cal comeback by obtaining 7.3 percent. 

If Mr. Kohl manages to form a coali- 
tion government with the Free Demo- 
crats, his room for maneuver will not be 
great in domestic or foreign affairs. 

The government will depend largely on 
the Social Democratic Party, which has a 
strong majority in the upper chamber of 
Pa rliam ent, the BundesraL The Social 
Democrats' approval will be needed for 
passage of most laws. 

It is certainly possible that Mr. Kohl 
win try to create more political space by 
giving Germany a stronger profile abroad 
— moving to strengthen the Maastricht 
process in Europe and to contribute more 
strongly to UN peace missions. 

In some ways. Sunday brought the end 
of the political system of the old Federal 
Republic of Germany. Although the po- 
litical swing was not radical, we are wit- 
nessing the coming together of two quite 
different societies. 

The East German element in the new 

political system became clear for the first 
time. The PDS will in many ways repre- 
sent the 20 percent of the Germans living 
in the East. The East has, for the first 
time, shown the will and the power, to 
play a role in the country. 

Three people had reason lobe content, 

to varying degrees, with the results Sun- 
day: Chancellor Kohl whose political 
pull made possible a narrow victory for 
his party; Klaus Kinkel who, instead of 
digging a grave for his Free Democrats 
‘saved them, at least for now; and, of 
course, Rudolf Scharping. 

Like Helmut Kohl in the 2970s, Mr. 
Scharping, who is 46, now comes to Bonn 
to lead the opposition in the Bundestag. 
His first aim will be to fend off his rivals 
in the SPD troika, Oskar Lafontaine and 
Gerhard Schroeder. 

Mr. Kohl for his part, knows that he 
has achieved everything a politician can 
dream of. He is the chancellor of German 
unity. And he believes in Europe and in a 
trans-Atlantic relationship with America. 
He has remarkable freedom to stay or to 
step down from office. Those who know 
him realize that Mr. Kohl, and no one else, 
will decide when he goes. It is certain to be 

a moment of general surprise.

Oil Revenue: 20 Million Iraqis Are Trapped Between the Battle Lines 


N ICOSIA— Whp really bene- 
fits if Iraq and its suffering 
people are made to continue pay- 
ing the costs of the embargo on 
oil exports, and if a threat of U.S. 
military action is left hanging 
over their already badly damaged 
oil industry? 

The embargo that followed 
Saddam Hussein’s insane inva- 
sion of Kuwait created a huge 
bonanza for Saudi Arabia, Ku- 
wait and big oil in general as 
Fadhil Chalaby, executive direc- 
tor of the London-based Center 
for Global Energy Studies, noted 
in a clairvoyant lecture in July. 

The embargo forbids Iraq to 
export more than a small amount 
of oQ (Jordan gets some legally; 
more leaks out through Turkey 
and Iran on trucks or barges ply- 
ing the Gulf, where traders buy it 
surreptitiously at Dubai). 

The chief benefactors of the 
embargo have been the Saudis. 
Before the 1990 war, Saudi Ara- 
bia made shrewd investments to 
increase its production capacity, 
as it has done at opportune mo- 
ments before. This enabled it to 
replace more than 75 percent of 

By John K. Cooley 

the embargoed Iraqi oil sales. 
OPEC raised the Saudi export 
quota from 5.4 million barrels 
per day to 8.4 million, settling 
finally at around 8 million, for a 
50 percent gain. 

Mr. Chalaby calculates a cu- 
mulative gain for Saudi Arabia, 
as a result of the Iraqi embargo, 
of S72 billion (its average yearly 
income from 1990 to 1993 was 
544 billion). Yet, Saudi Arabia 
has been experiencing serious fi- 
nancial difficulties. So the Saudis, 
as well as the Kuwaitis and other 
Gulf emirates, are desperately 
anxious to keep Iraq’s oil exports 
off the market as long as possible. 

Starting before the Iraqi em- 
bargo, the Saudi kingdom steadi- 
ly drew down its external finan- 
cial assets. It then turned to heavy 
borrowing from banks and finan- 
cial institutions to finance grow- 
ing budget deficits. So Saudi Ara- 
bia sees an early return of Iraqi 
ofl to the world market as a threat 
not only to its finances but to its 
national security. 

The same is true, though to a 

lesser extent, of Kuwait, Iran and 
Venezuela, oil experts say. All 
three benefited from the embargo 
by raising their market shares, at 
Iraq’s expense. 

Mr. Chalaby’s London think 
tank puls cumulative Iraqi losses 
of oil income since Saddam's oc- 
cupation of Kuwait in 1 990 at $70 
billion or more — the value of 
Iraq’s prewar oil exports at the 
prevailing market price. 

In 1980, before its war with 
Iran, Iraq was producing nearly 4 
million barrels per day. Then, 
with large-scale destruction of its 
export terminals, doting of ex- 
port pipelines and damage to oth- 
er installations, Iraqi output 
dropped to I million barrels. Its 
production level had climbed 
bade to 33 million just before the 
disastrous Kuwait adventure. The 
shutdown that came with the em- 
bargo in 1991 has not only cut 
output; it has trimmed Iraq’s ca- 
pacity to make a comeback. 

Saddam Hussein and those still 
loyal to him must have fdt the 
breath of doom when Dick Che- 

ney, the former USL defense sec- 
retary. remarked almost casually 
on U.S. tdevision recently that 
Iraq’s oil installations could be 
easily hit again. 

The world’s biggest oil compa- 
nies and some governments have 
been gambling against an Ameri- 
can air and missile strike that 
could paralyze Iraq’s oil-depen- 
dent economy for yeajs. Hoping 
for an end to the embargo, Frmch, 
Ital ian , Japanese and even Amer- 
ican oilmen beat a path to the Oil 
Ministry in Baghdad, seeking 
new concessions. 

A detailed report by the Middle 
East Economic Survey, an authori- 
tative Cyprus-based journal out- 
lined deals concluded in early Sep- 
tember between Baghdad and 
Moscow that ensure a leading role 
for Russia in Iraq’s oil industry, 
whenever that industry gets back 
tm its fecL A long-term agreement 
is worth about $10 billion. 

Projects include development 
of Iraq’s pant West Qurnah oil 
field, construction of a power sta- 
tion at Yusufiyah and the laying 
of a 350-kflometer (210-mile) gas 
pipeline between Natiriyah in 

Iraq's south and Baghdad. At 
Iraq's request, there will also be 
new oil export and storage facili- 
ties. an upgrading of war-bat- 
tered refineries, and construction 
of an iron and sled plant 

If Russian engineers are not 
frightened off by the prospect of 
U3. bombs, they are ready to be- 
gin inspecting and assessing war- 
damaged oil projects. 

Iraq, meantime, will continue 
pressing its traditional customers 
— American, Frehch, Italian, 
Japanese — to help it lobby the 
United Nations Security Council 
to lift the embargo. 

Decision-makers in the Middle 
East should ponder who would 
profit from a new conflict, fought 
certainly in part over oil interests. 
Is a strike against an obnoxious 
dictator worth further injury to a 
society of 20 million people, even 
if it ensures short-tenn bonanzas 
for that dictator's foes?

South China Sea: Washington Needs to Hear About Beijing’s Claims 

fense Secretary W illiam 
Perry, now in China, should have 
one question at the top of his 
Beijing agenda: What are China’s 
daims regarding the South China 
Sea? Cozy belief by the United 
States and some Asian neighbors 
that "engagement^ with China 
will, by definition, enhance re- 
gional security sounds nice, but it 
is a notion based partly on a 
yawning information gap. 

In the emerging world order, 
the South China Sea is becoming 
as strategically important as the 
Mediterranean. Yet no one, and 
that includes the U.S. govern- 
ment, knows the full nature and 
extent (rf China ’s c laims. 

Whatever its ul tima te objec- 
tives, China’s imprecision on this 
matter has kept America on the 
sidelines and deflected the possi- 
bility of a common stand by other 
states against China’s more ex- 
treme claims. It has also obfuscat- 
ed the relationship between its 
claim to the tiny islets and reefs 
known as the Spratlys, its daims 
to oil under the sea floor and its 
claims to the sea itself. 

Take the most fun dame ntal is- 
sue. China long ago issued a map 
outlining its claim to the sea as 
"historic waters.” A U-shaped 
area delineated by a dotted line 
gives it the whole sea up to a line 
ranging roughly 15 to 200 nautical 
miles from the coasts of the others. 

Yet the United States “doesn’t 
believe a claim has been made.” 
That, at least, was the answer of 
one official expert when asked 
why the United States has not 
included China’s apparent claims 
in its extensive catalogue of "ex- 
treme” maritime daims. 

But China has yet to define 
what it means by "historic wa- 
ters,” which has no basis in the 

By Philip Bowring 

1982 UN Law of the Sea conven- 
tion, signed by Beijing. 

According to one Chinese au- 
thority, Pan Shiying, speaking at 
a recent South China Sea confer- 
ence in Washington. China does 
not regard the sea as “internal 
waters.” But what does it claim 
within that famous line? 

The issue is crucial. While oth- 
er nations claim some of the tiny 
islands and use them as baselines 
for cl aims to territorial waters 
and seabed, China has this addi- 
tional "historic” claim to the wa- 
ters at large. 

China has spelled out its land 
and territorial water claims. Its 
national Law on the subject goes 
beyond what is permissible under 
the Law of the Sea, claiming the 
right to control passage of war- 
ships through its territorial sea 
and contiguous waters. 

At least the land daims can be 
addressed in the same terms as 
used by other countries. Their ap- 
plication, if not sovereignty itself, 
can be subjected to the Law of the 
Sea. But the maritime claim is of a 
different order. 

This question could involve yet 
another country finding itself in 
conflict with China — Indonesia. 
Indonesia has no claims to the 
Spratlys, but the area delineated 
by the Chin ese line includes the 
huge gas field discovered by Ex- 
xon off Indonesia's Natuna Is- 
lands. This is one of the largest 
hydrocarbon finds so far in the 
South China Sea. It will cost 520 
billion to develop. 

According to Pan Shiying. the 
line, roughly equidistant between 
China's Spratly daims and the 
coasts of the other nations, could 
be regarded with “a certain flexi- 
bility.” However, the lack of clar- 

ity leaves open the possibility that 
China will at some point seek to 
make a claim on Indonesian as 
well as Malaysian, Philippine and 
Vietnamese exploitation of oil 
and gas within the line. 

China awarded ofl rights in a 
large block that lies oft southern 
Vietnam and near Malaysian wa- 
ters to Crestone, a U.S. company, 
on the basis of proximity to one 
Spratly island. 

But it has criticized Vietnamese 
exploitation of a field that lies 
much closer to Vietnam than to 
any Spratly, but which is within 
the Chinese line boundary. 

The United States, for its part, 
lacks a policy other than to say 
that it does not take sides in dis- 
putes over sovereignty. It is thus 
impossible to determine China ’s 
long-term intent 

Is it to maneuver for position 
before agreeing to a partition of 
the sea, linked to joint develop- 
ment of resources? Or is it to play 
for time, discouraging others, par- 
ticularly Vietnam, from exploiting 
oil off their coasts, while budding 
its naval forces and watching 
U.S. presence decline? 
Through the ASEAN Regional 
Forum, the countries of the Asso- 
ciation of South East Asian Na- 
tions have focused attention on 
the issue. But ASEAN is divided 
on what to do. Thailand has Utile 
direct interest Some other mem- 
bers do not want to give the im- 
pression of ganging vp on Hhinflj 
which insists on dealing with the 
issues bilaterally. 

Malaysia is trying to engage 
China in dialogue rather than 
take a common stand with Viet- 
nam and the Philippines (al- 
though it is inc reasing militar y 
contacts with those two). Chances 

of a joint ASEAN stand might be 
strengthened if Vietnam joined 
the group, as it wants to do. 

Amid all this confusion. Amer- 
ica’s friends in the region are un- 
clear what role they want the 
United States to play. They want 
a continued U.S. presence, to pre- 
vent anyone else from establish- 
ing hegemony and to deter adven- 
turism. Yet they are equivocal 
about a direct U.S. role, either 
because they doubt America’s 
commitment, fear Chinese wrath 
or harbor resentment against out- 
side powers enforcing local law. 

Thus, if the U.S. 7th Fleet in- 
tends to stay in the South China 
Sea into the next century, the 

United States needs clearer objec- 
tives. But first the United States 
will need to press Beijing to clari- 
fy its daims . Washington cannot 
ignore the question. In addition 
t° U.S. commitments to ensure 
freedom of navigation in the re- 
gion — in possible conflict with 
apparent Chinese policies — seri- 
ous problems could arise from 
U.S. oil companies d rilling in dis- 
puted waters. 

Unless the United States is pre- 
pared to ask hard questions about 
Chinese claims, it cannot answer 
the central question: What rote, if 
any- docs the 7th Fleet have in the 

South China Sea?

There’s Just One Way Ahead 
For Israel and Palestinians 


Hurt and Heathenish in Germany 

By Anthony Lewis

>«ii«r «•?*••'•* 

B OSTON — “I don’t remember 
an inddoit when we were aU so 
deeply involved,” an Israeli friend 
said. ‘Teople felt that something 
haroened in their own family.” 

She was talking about the kidnap- 
ping of an Israeli soldier. Corporal 
Nachshon Waxman, by Hamas ter- 
rorists — and his murder by them as 
an Israeli force unsuccessfully 
stormed the West Bank house where 
be was being held. All of Israel had 
seen the videotape made by Hamas, 
with the young man pleading for his 
life, and all mourned his death. 

The trauma of the kidnapping 
raised hard questions for the future 
of the effort to construct an Israeli- 

Hama* is pressing hard, but 
Arafat has no alternative to 
pursuing peace with hraeL 

Palestinian peace. Despite the emo- 
tions in Israel, the problems are far 
harder on the Palestinian ride. 

Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin 
handled the tenrions of the kidnap- 

S with extraordinary political 
He made mistakes, but under- 
standable ones that should not be 
■ second-guessed. Most significantly, 

' he acted in a way that left the peace 
-process intact m terms of Israeli 
politics public opinion. 

Hamas smuggled the Waxman 
videotape into Gaza and gave it to 
the press there. Mr. Rabin therefore 
reached the wrong conclusion that 
Corporal Waxman was bring held 
somewhere in the Gaza Strip. He 
insisted that Yasser Arafat, who has 
authority in Gaza under the first 
phase of the peace process, was re- 
sponsible for finding the prisoner. 

In the turmoil of those few days 
hardly anyone noticed what Mr. Ra- 
bin did not do. He did not send the 
Israeli army back into Gaza in force 
to search for Corporal Waxman. In 
putting the respcmsibifity an Mr. 
Arafat, he effectively confirmed Pal- 
estinian authority in Gaza. 

The episode, and Mr. Rabin’s 
handling of it, had another, psycho- 
logical effect It reinforced the shift 
in Israeli thinking about the PLO 
that began when Mr. Rabin shook 
Mr. Arafat’s hand at the White 
House a year ago: the shift toward 
seeing the PLO as the best hope of 
peace with the Palestinians, with 
Hamas as the enemy. 

Mr. Arafat acted in a way that 
furthered that shift in Israeli opin- 
ion. He did not bristle at Mr. Ra- 

bin’s rough (and, as it turned oul, 
misplaced.) demand to find the pris- 
oner in Gaza. He arrested 200 Ha- 
mas members and tried to help in an 
abortive attempt to negotiate with 
Hamas political leaders. 

But those very gestures show why 
the kidnapping left worse political 
problems for Mr. Arafat. For what 
be did led to his bring reriled by 
Hamas as a tool of Israel. 

In Palestinian political terms, in 
fact, Hamas won. Its supporters 
marched in Gaza demanding that 
Mr. Arafat release those arrested. In 
the still occupied sections of the 
West Bank, too, some felt that Ha- 
mas gained support. 

Israel is pressing Mr. Arafat to 
suppress Hamas and disarm its mil- 
itary members, who still drive 
around Gaza waving guns. The de- 
mand echoes what happened in Isra- 
el soon after the birth of the state in 
19S8, when David Bea-Gurion's 
government seized weapons from a 
ship, the AJtalena, that was bringing 
them to the Lrgun movement — and 
thereby made clear that there could 
be no private army inside Israel. 

But Mr. Arafat’s Palestinian Au- 
thority is far weaker than the Ben- 
Gtuion government was. It is not 
dear that he has the power to disarm 
Hamas, much less to make the 
movement illegal. “One shouldn’t 
envy Yasser Arafat,” an Israeli said. 
“It’s not a job you would want.” 

It is worse because Mr. Arafat's 
headquarters is in Gaza, a Hamas 
stronghold. To rebuild that desper- 
ately impoverished place and there- 
by gain political legitimacy, he 
needs the promised aid from out- 
side. That requires cooperation 
from Israel, which demands sup- 
pression of Hamas. But if he moves, 
m that direction, be loses legitima- 
cy with many Palestinians. 

“It’s almost a no-win situation for 
him,” Yaron Ezrahi. an Israeli polit- 
ical theorist now in the United 
States, said. “The best we can expect 
is wavering progress.” 

But then Mr. Prrahi added a com- 
ment that other Israelis made when 1 
asked about the effects of the kid- 
napping: “I am convinced that the 
peace process will not be stopped.” 

Perhaps there is an element of 
wishful thinkin g in that conclusion. 
But with all the setbacks — the 
Hebron massacre by an Israeli ex- 
tremist. Palestinian terror — it 
remains a fact that there is no way 
to security and a normal life for 
cither Israelis or Palestinians but 
peace between them.

I — 


$90^9 L 


B ERLIN — The Herr Professor 
Doktor looked at me as though 
I had just demanded the keys to the 
hospital pharmacy. I had simply 
asked to go home. 

“Why do you want to leave?” he 
asked in German. “You've suffered 
a serious injury. It’s my opinion that 
you arc not ready to be discharged 


yet” He gestured at the toes-io-hip 
cast encasing my right leg, the con- 
sequence of surgery to repair the 
Achilles’ tendon I’d snapped in a 
Saturday morning soccer game. 

“My experience,” the Herr Profes- 
sor Doktor said, “is that patients with 
injuries like this should remain in the 
hospital for 12 days. You’ve only 
been here four days.” 

He methodically revisited his 
treatment plan: 12 days in a hospital 
bed, then a walking cast for the hip 
for two weeks, then another cast, for 
the knee for another two weeks, then 
physical therapy. Any attempt to 
short-cut this process could be cata- 
strophic, he warned. 

I marshaled my rebuttal. I knew it 
would be an uphill battle on several 
counts. First, no one ever confuses 
me with Goethe when I speak Ger- 
man. And second, I was arguing as 
layman to physician. Moreover, I 
was arguing in contradiction of one 
of the most revered figures in Ger- 
man society, the Herr Professor 
Doktor. In a culture that yields easi- 
ly to authority, the medical chief of a 


France and the Gulf 

Regarding “Now Follow Up With a 
Drive to Bring Down Saddam” 
(Opinion, Oct. 17): 

In his article, Mr. Hoagland as- 
serts that I accused the Americans of 
using the Gulf crisis for political 
ends, and he nminfains that 1 said 
that Saddam Hussein did nothing 
wrong by moving troops around in 
his own country. 

Let us stick to the facts. 

I never accused the United States, 
a friendly country with which I have 
always had a relationship of trust, of 
any sort of manipulation. In re- 
sponse to a question, 1 merely noted 
that in the United States, as in any 
other democracy, domestic and for- 
eign politics are interdependent. 
This was a simple, commonsense 
observation that applies just as well 
to France. 

I do not contest Mr. Hoagland’s 
right to suspect dark ulterior mo- 

tives, which, however, I never had. 
But I defy him to cite any declara- 
tion whatsoever on my part that 
could in any sense be construed as 
justification for Baghdad’s recent 
initiatives. To the contrary, 1 have 
continuously condemned the move- 
ments of Iraqi troops, calling them a 
threat to the security of Kuwait and 
of peace in the Gulf. 

But words are not always enough. 
Thus, in my capacity as defense 
minister and acting in pursuance of 
the policy decided on by the entire 
French executive, I sent a frigate to 
waters off the emirate, which was 
later joined by a second such vessel; 
moreover, I placed on alert those 
military forces that might have been 
needed to come to Kuwait's aid had 
the crisis worsened. 

On a personal level, allow me to 
point oul that when I was in the 
opposition, 1 gave my most energet- 
ic support to the need for military 
involvement by my country in the 

Gulf alongside the United States, at 
a time when this attitude was hardly 
widespread. I am therefore most 
s ensi tive to any deformation of my 
positions — which have not 
changed, and which continue to be 
marked by solidarity with our allies.

More of This for Bosnia 

Regarding “Following the Europe- 
ans to Dishonor” (Opinion, SepL 30) 
by William Safire: 

Calling a spade a spade is what 
this piece is all about. The interna- 
tional community needs more of 
the same, and not the shamelessly 
disguised rhetoric of Lieutenant 
General Sir Michael Rose, Lord 
Owen and the so-called contact 
group on Bosnia. 



By Rick Atkinson 

major hospital rates pretty high on 
the demigod scale. 

Dr. Ulrich Weber was not only 
the head of orthopedic surgery at 
Oskar-Helene-Hcdm Hospital, but 
also a professor of medicine at Ber- 
lin's Free University. Tall, direct 
and — as my first hospital room- 
mate had put it — “a bit authoritar- 
ian" — he was also competent, dili- 
gent and good-humored. 

Finally, my petition for eariy dis- 
charge was very un-German, when 
Germans fall 01 — or even think they 
ought — there is none of this lash- 
me-to-thc-mast fortitude. They head 
for bed. Die average hospital stay in 
Germany is 17 days, compared with 9 
days in the United States. The typical 
Goman worker takes 19 days of sick 
leave annually, vs. 7 days for the 
average American; Germans on aver- 
age visit the doctor 1 1 times a year. 

Nevertheless, 1 pleaded my case, i 
was feeling fine. At home 1 would be 
able to work more easily — in bed 
with my leg propped up, of course 
— without the many distractions in 
a busy hospiiaL My doctor-wife 
would be there to help care for me; 
she was no Frau Professor Doktor of 
orthopedics, absolutely not, but she 
knew medicine and could play the 
enforcer to keep me immobile. 

“I promise nl stay in bed,” I 
assured the doctor. “I can ... ”He 
cut me short. "Everyone promises to 
stay in bed," be said. “My experi- 
ence is they have good intentions 
but then there’s a book they need or 
something that has to be done, and 
soon they’re moving around.” 

He was edging toward the door, 
trailed by the clutch of interns and 
nurses accompanying him on his 
Wednesday morning rounds. The 
battle seemed lost. 

“There’s one more thing,” I added, 
taking a last shot “This is expensive. 
It’s costing me money.” 

Dr. Weber wheeled back toward 
me. “How’s that?" 

“Because I'm an American in- 
sured through my company, I have 
to pay part of the bill for room 
and treatment.” 

This hospital room alone was 
more than 400 Deutsche marks a 
day ($260) and I figured a 12-day 
stay would cost me more than $600 
out-of-pocket, exclusive of treat- 
ment charges. In truth, as usual, I 
wasn’t altogether certain bow much 
my insurance would cover. 

The doctor’s countenance 
changed completely. He gazed upon 
me like a missionary who realizes 
that the soul of the heathen before 
him is forever benighted — and per- 
haps not worth saving anyway. 

“Well, this is altogether a different 

matter," he said. “O.IC, well arrange 
for you to go home tomorrow ” 
“The American health care sys- 
tem is different from the Goman,” I 
said, trying not to sound too defen- 
sive. The interns and nurses seemed 
to be avoiding my eyes, as if the 
issue were slightly embarrassing. 

“Yes," Dr. Weber agreed. “It’s 
too bad Mrs. Clinton was not 

Were I a German, chances are 1 
would never see a hospital bill. Most 
Germans are covered by “sickness 
funds,” to which they contribute 
through payroll deductions. The av- 
erage contribution — evenly divided 
between employee and employer — 
is 13.4 percent of gross salary. 

In return, Germans get access to 
one of the most sophisticated medi- 
cal systems in the world, with elabo- 
rate benefits and the freedom to 
choose their doctors. Virtually ev- 
eryone is covered. 

The German system has draw- 
backs, to be sure. Doctors are paid cm 
a fee-for-service basis, so there is an 
incentive to overtreat. Patients have 
little reason to economize or moder- 
ate iheir use of the system. like the 
United Stales, Germany is struggling 
to contain spiraling costs. 

But for a German, good medical 
treatment without fretting over 
costs is a birthright. 

Before Dr. Weber turned again 
for the door, he noted that American 
reformers have periodically studied 
the German system as a possible 
model. “Wc certainly have problems 
with our system,” he added, “but my 
estimation is that on the whole it 
serves the patients very well”

had won, but victory felt a bit hol- 
low — not because I regretted avoid- 
ing a dozen days in an orthopedic 
ward, but because in this minor mo- 
ment of cultural comparison it was 
difficult not to feel like a runner-up. 

What upset me, as an American, 
was the tacit acknowledgment of my 
country’s collective failure to solve 
the perplexing structural problems 
in our health care system. It's rare in 
Berlin — a city grateful for being 
brought back from the dead by the 
United States — to fed less than 10 
feet tall as an American. But I 
couldn't help feeling slightly dimin- 
ished by this episode.

In the case of “Lake of the 
Woods,” a not-so-omniscient 
narrator, who bears more than a 
passing resemblance to O'Brien, 
relates the story of John and 
Kathy Wade, piecing together 
the jigsaw puzzle of their lives as 
best he can. His knowledge — 
and hence, the reader's knowl- 
edge — is highly provisional. 
This narrator uses quotations 
culled from philosophy, psychol- 
ogy axtd literature to try to illu- 
minate John Wade's problems, 
and he also speculates freely 
about what may or may not have 
happened in his life. 

Gradually, a portrait of 
Wade emerges. We’re told that 
Wade was a fat, unhappy boy, 
haunted by the suicide of his 
alcoholic father. We’re told that 
he became an amateur magi- 
cian, and that magic not only 
gave him the illusion of control 
but also endowed him with a 
desire to manipulate reality. 

We’re told that Wade earned 
the nickname “Sorcerer” while 
serving in Vietnam and that he 
seemed to work magic tricks in 
his subsequent career as a poli- 
tician. charming voters while 
nimbly sidestepping questions 
about his past. 

That past, however, is abrupt- 
ly exposed by Wade’s opponent 
in a Minnesota Senate race, who 
reveals lhai Wade was involved 
in the My Lai massacre in Viet- 
nam. It is a revelation that de- 
stroys Wade’s chances of elec- 
tion. It is also a revelation that 
shatters Wade’s carefully con- 
structed sense of self. 

Having spent years trying to 
erase all evidence of his com- 
plicity, having spent decades 
denying his involvement in the 
massacre to himself, Wade is 
suddenly confronted with the 
truth of what he did back in 
1968. In doing so. be is forced to 
grapple with what he is capable 
of and who be really is. 

Kathy, loo, finds the My Lai 
revelations devastating, for she 
realizes that she does not know 
the man she has been married to 
for so many years. 

When it comes to describing 
John Wade's descent into actum 
madness, O'Brien stumbles bad- 
ly. making his hero utter inan- 
ities like “Kill Jesus” over and 
over again. The daily texture of 
his life is also poorly evoked: 
The reader never for a moment 
believes that Wade has actually 
participated in politics, much 
less node a run for the Senate. 

To make matters worse. 
O’Brien’s narrative pyrotechnics 
never off the way they did in 
“The Things They Carried.” 
They ultimately fed gratuitous, 
and mannered, much like the 
self-important comments his 
narrator likes to indulge in. 

“Can we believe that he was 
not a monster but a man.” this 
narrator says of John Wade at 
the end of the book, “That he 
was innocent of everything ex- 
cept his hfe?” 

Such heavy-handed passages 
paper over the visceral drama of 
Wade’s story, and they ulti- 
mately sap this novel of life.

Chanel’s Monte Carlo: 

Lagerfeld Scores Again 

By Suzy Menkes 

International Herald Tribune 

P ARIS — Just when you 
thought there was no 
erode zone left to ex- 
plore. Chanel played an 
air on a G-string. 

On the backcloth was a vista 
of Monte Carlo beach — all 
spar klin g sea and pink washed 
villa. And there on the runway 
were skins flying open like a 
sail in the breeze to reveal 

rhinestone bikinis. 

Chanel’s show was fast, 
funky, flirtatious and funny. It 
made a dynamic ending to a 
lively Paris season. It also con- 
tained, amid the towering plat- 
form shoes with ocedle heels 

referring to the cliff-top villa he 
calls home (well, one of them). 
He managed to capture in his 
spring/ summer collection both

of the COte d'Azur playground 
— and its blue-sky freshness. 

So although the glitter pail-

Paris Museum Seeks Heirs of Art Booty 

By Bany James 

International Herald Tribune 

PARIS — In a haunting reminder of 
the Nazi pillage of French art works and 
the looting of thousands of Jewish 
homes, a score of p ainting s and drawings 
wnt on display at the Musee d’Orsay on 
Monday in the hope of tracing their 
owners or their heirs. 

Seized as war booty, the 21 works were 
among 28 returned by Germany earlier 
this year. 

The French government returned sev- 
en paintings to two unidentified families 
recently, including a Gauguin and a Co- 
rot, which one man remembered hanging 
in his room as a child. 

“He was very moved to get it back,” 
said Frantpis Renouard of the French 
Foreign Ministry, who has directed ne- 
gotiations with Germany and Russia for 
the return of stolen art works and ar- 
chives. Those left to be claimed include a 
splendid Monet landscape of snow in the 
setting sun, a Renoir portrait of his son, a 
Delacroix portrait of a young man, two 
drawings by Seurat, a pastel by Pissarro, 
a drawing by Manet, a watercolor by 
C£zanne and' a landscape by Theodore 

In all likelihood, the works belonged 
to Jewish families sent to death camps 
during the war and may never be 

Claimed. The Musee d’Orsay volt keep 
them on display until Dec. 14, but Mr. 
Renouard said there was no cutoff date 
for claims. 

A German officer entrusted the works 
to a soldier with orders to take them to 
Germany and wait for his return. 

But the officer never reappeared. The 
unidentified soldier hung on to the paint- 
ings for many years, and in 1972 confid- 
ed their presence to the Archbishop of 
Magdeburg under the secret of the con- 

France negotiated unsuccessfully for 
the return of the paintings, along’ with 
other cultural goods, from 1974 to 1988. 
With the reunification of Germany, ne- 
gotiations were resumed. Chancellor 
Helmut Kohl symbolically returned the 
Monet landscape to President Francois 
Mitterrand at a meeting in May. 

In the 1 5 years after the end of the war. 
West Germany returned more than 
60,000 art works to France and paid 
reparations for o there. 

Thousands more works taken to East 
Germany during the war were seized by 
the R ussians . France still is trying to 
obtain the return of state and private 
archives from Moscow. German troops 
seized files filling TA kilometers (4.5 
miles) of shelves. Since the fall of Com- 
munism, the Russians have sent back 

eight truckloads, about half the total. 

Mr. Renouard said. 

In a recent book called “The Rape of 
Europa,” the art historian Lynn H. Nich- 
olas details the staggering extent of Nazi 
looting throughout the occupied coun- 
tries. In France, the Germans raided 
71,619 homes and shipped more than a 
million cubic meters of goods to the 
fatherland in more than 29.000 railroad 

Truckload after truckload of paintings 
and objets d’arl confiscated from Jewish 
families were dumped at the Jeu de 
Paume, just across the river from what is , 
now the Orsay museum. Senior Nazi 
officials, including Hermann Goring, 
took the choicest objects. 

Mr. Renouard heads the archive and 
documentation section of the Foreign 
Ministry, which itself lost part of its 
valuable collection of maps and globes 
during the war. 

He said that negotiations to bring 
back stolen an objects often founder on 
delicate diplomatic and juridical prob- ». -yaj 
lems. Many looted works, for example, [ ' 
have been bought in good faith by one or > 
more buyers. Claims risk touching off 
counterclaims that the French, and oth- 
ers, would prefer to avoid.

collection of art booty during the course

quarters in the back. The most 
popular comic strip in the coun- 
try concerns a white household- 
er and her black maid. 

“Domestic servants are ubiq- 
uitous in South Africa," said 
Harry Dugmore, a co-writer of 
the comic strip, “Madam and 

Eve.” “If you have money, you 
have a servant It is die South 
African way.” 

There are at least 1 million 
domestics in the country, or 
about one in every five black 
adults in the labor force. Many 
leave their own children behind 
in poor townships or rural 
homelands a day’s bus ride 
away to scrub somebody else’s 
floors and change the diapers of 
somebody else’s children. They 
are often their family’s only 
breadwinner, usually divorced 
or separated, because, they say, 
most marriages wither in their 
absence from home. 

Many work Sunday to Sun- 
day with indefinite hours, rest- 
ing when their employer says 
rest, as one domestic put it. 
Some get only a few hours off 
every Thursday. They usually 
eat the £ 31113/5 leftovers and 
live free of charge in a tiny back 

U they are lucky, they make 
S150 a month, most of which 
goes to feeding and clothing the 
children ana grandchildren 
they do not get to raise. Most go 
home once a year at Christmas. 

“I do not have dreams, only 
worries,” Antoinette Dlung- 

wana said of the weight she car- 
ries as sole provider to four chil- 
dren and three grandchildren 
back home in TranskeL “As 1 
am g this meal, 1 am think- 

ing about them.” 

She rarely speaks to her chil- 
dren because her employer will 
not permit her to call home. To 
reach her family, sbe must get a 
friend in the post office to relay 
messages for her. 

That is the lesser of her indig- 
nities. She dusts the sofas and 
chairs but is not permitted to sit 
on them. She must move from 
room to room the one kitchen 
chair she is allowed to sit on, 
placing newspapers underneath 
before setting it down. 

“If I want to sit and talk with 
the madame, I have to bring my 
chair.” she said. “I cannot sit on 
her chairs. My things must not 
mix with her things. 1 must use 
my own spoon, my own plate, 
my own cup.” 

A hard life has gotten harder 
since the campaign last April. A 
few days before the election, 
Delsie Sedibe recalled, her em- 
ployer showed her a copy of the 
ballot and pointed to the pic- 
ture of Frederik W. de Klerk, 
the former president, and gave 

instructions: “This is what you 
vote for. Don't make a mistake. 
There is de Klerk. There is 
Buthelezi below him. You must 
be carefuL Mandela is light in 
complexion. Don't confuse him 
with de Klerk." She was refer- 
ring to Chief Mangosuthu 
Buthelezi, head of the Zulu- 
based Inkatha Freedom Party. 

The employer took her maid 
to the polls, as many did, and 
warned her again about what 
she must do. Mrs. Sedibe nod- 
ded and stepped inside. 

“When I was in the voting 
booth, it was only me and my 
God,” she said. *‘So 1 put an & 
next to Mandela.” 

Some time after Mr. Mandela 
won. Mrs. Sedibe was watching 
the news, after f inishin g the 
ironing, when she was asked 
what she was doing. 

“I want to hear what Man- 
dela is saving," Mrs. Sedibe 

“Why are you listening?" the 
master said. “That means you 
like him.” 

“He’s the president," she 
said. “He was voted by the peo- 

“Oh, that means you voted 
for him, too " the master said.

A few weeks later she was 
dismissed. The job had been 
paying her S100 a mouth. 

The governments general re- 
sponse to labor issues has been 
that the Reconstruction and 
Development Program will help 
set the country on the right 
course to the benefit of all citi- 
zens, half of whom are unem- 
ployed. Mr. Mandela has put a 
priority on improving the econ- 
omy, creating more jobs and 
raising the level of education so 
that people like domestics can 
get better jobs. 

After hearing of Mr. Mande- 
la’s inauguration, Mrs. Dlung- 
wana was euphoric. A man who 
looked like her. was Xhosa like 
her, has her high cheekbones 
and regal, handsome face, was 
in charge of the country. 

But after it was over, she 
walked up the fire escape to the

ed by a naked light bulb, that is

work of German unity. “If the 
Germans don’t r ealize now that 
Ger man unity as a historical 
event will be wasted if we don’t 
press ahead in parallel with Eu- 
ropean unity, then there is no 
hope for the Germans,” the 
chancellor said in a press con- 
ference Monday. 

Both brands of unity may be 
within Mr. Kohl's reach, but 
neither will be wholly successful 
if Germany becomes mired in 
the problems now threatening 

Consider the country’s eco- 
nomic plight On the surface — 
and the surface is what Mr. 
Kohl chose to stress in the cam- 
paign — things look pretty fair. 
Inflation has dropped a bit, to 
just over 3 percent. Unemploy- 
ment has also come down, to 
just under 8 percent in Western 
Germany and under 14 percent 
in the East. Last year’s shrink- 
ing economy has been sup- 
planted by this year’s 2.S per- 
cent growth, including a boom 
of more than 8 percent in East- 
ern Germany. The country had 
a S39 billion trade surplus last 

But beneath these glad tid- 
ings lie intractable structural 
problems, which the German 
government has only superfi- 
cially addressed. More than 3-5 
million people remain jobless 

and there are signs that high 
unemployment may become a 
permanent feature of the Ger- 
man landscape. Germans work 
fewer hours and have the high- 
est wages and benefits (now 
creeping toward $30 per hour 
on average) than anyone else in 
the world, with predictable re- 
sults for product costs. 

Despite recent efforts to im- 
prove competitiveness by low- 
ering some business taxes, the 
country is ensnared in regula- 
tion and hobbled by a lack of 
workplace flexibility. For ex- 

hours are tightly controlled. 
Privatization and technological 
innovation are advancing slow- 
ly, at best. 

“The engine of recovery is 
running on two cylinders, for- 
eign demand and a construc- 
tion boom.” Rudolf Scharping, 
the Social Democrats' unsuc- 
cessful candidate for chancel- 
lor, observed during the cam- 
paign. “The other two cylinders 
are missing, capital investment” 
and domestic demand. 

Impressive progress in the 
East has come at the expense of 
a runaway federal debt and the 
transfer of some 500 billion 
Deutsche marks ($325 billion) 
from Western Germany in the 
last four years. The government 
now spends one mark in every 

seven on debt servicing and tha; 
most likely will rise 10 one mark ‘ 
in every four by 1997. according 
to the Federal Audit Office. 

Beyond the economy are a 
host of other domestic prob-. 
lems: persistent rightist vio- 
lence and xenophobia; disturb-; 
ing demographic trends, 
including a rapidly aging popu- 
lation; increasing crime; a trou- 
bled university system, and so< 

Some of those closest to Mr. 
Kohl suspect, however, that the 
chancellor wants to spend his. 
final term not in the bowels of 
German domestic policy but on. 
the sunny heigh is where states- 
men stand. 

A genuinely unified Europe, 
perhaps garnished with a per- 
manent German seal on the 
United Nations Security Coun- 
cil and routine German partici- 
pation in international peace-, 
keeping expeditions, would 
ensure Mr. Kohl's stature as a 
chancellor for the ages — “Bis- 
marck in a cardigan,” as Der; 
Spiegel magazine dubbed him. 

Whether domestic politics 
permits the chancellor to com- 
plete his European architecture 
and whether Mr. Kohl has the 
wherewithal to tackle German 
domestic problems will be

Bourse at a record low of 17.85

The operator of the Channel

nue forecasts for this year by 
three-fourths, to 337 million 
francs instead of the 1.35 billion 
forecast in May. 

With freight shuttle trains

gers and their cars between Do-

lais. Thai service is expected to 
begin in late November or early 

Passengers and freight com-

dence in the tunnel's prospects 
by revealing that he had just’ 
placed an order for 5,000 Euro-

got a 50 percent return,” he 
said. He did not predict when 
that might be. 

DOLLAR: No Reversal b in Sight Following Currency’s Latest Tumble 

Continued from Page I One big question worrying some experts suffer major setbacks in next month's mn 

Sunday that seemed to imply a lack of 
concern with the dollar’s weakness, were 
enough to send the currency crashing. 
When it hit 1.4970 DM in Asian trading, 
the dollar was more than 2 pfennigs below 
its Friday close in New York and stood at 
its lowest level in two years. 

I On Monday, Mr. Bentsen said he want- 
ed to see the dollar stronger, but his com- 
1 men is were disregarded by the market. 

In Asia, the dollar also fell sharply 
against the yen, hitting 97.25 yen before 
massive intervention by the Bank of Japan 
drove it bade above 98 yen. But it fell again 
later in the day, to 97.65 yen. 

Analysts said that, as has been the case 
for much of the year, most of the activity 
came from banks and speculative hedge 
funds seeking short-term trading gains 



“They have stuck with the currency for a 
long time,” said Mr. Burke, who noted that 
in February the dollar stood at 1.7700 DM. 
A shift of sentiment in the corporate sector 
would knock out one of the few pillars of 
support the dollar still has. 

In the near term, experts see the doDar 
as heading still lower. 

Christian Dunis, currency strategist at 
Chemical Bank, sees it heading down by 2 
or 3 more pfennigs. Others see it going into 
the mid- 1.40s. 

Michael Burke, an economist with Citi- 
bank's foreign exchange department, not- 
ed that with Mr. Kohl’s government safely 
re-elected, “The question of political risk 
now switches firmly to the U.S.” The Clin- 
ton administration is widely expected to 

suffer major setbacks in next month's con- 
gressional ejections. 

While the dollar’s weakness has caught , 
many analysts by surprise, most see little 
sign of a full-blown dollar rout. 

What worries some observers is that 
U.S. statistics Friday showing lessened in- 
flationary pressures were presumed to be 
bullish for the currency. With the dollar 
actually dropping, some analysts ex- 
pressed concern as to how the market 
would respond to bad figures. 

The French franc also weakened against 
the mark, falling below its 3.4305 franc 
floor against the mark under the former 
fluctuation ranges of the EU’s exchange 
rate mechanism. In New York, the dollar

officials said the commission 
would pursue projects that 
would provide the Chinese with 
technology for “environmental- 
ly safe vehicles" and for air traf- 
fic control for civilian flights, a 
I job now handled by the mili- 
I tary. 

Westinghouse Electric Corp. 
and Raytheon Co. are both in- 
volved in negotiations already 
to provide air traffic control 
equipment, sources in Beijing 
said. And though a U-S. official 
traveling with Mr. Perry said 
that contract awards were not 
imminent, he hoped the com- 
mission would later help tilt the 
Chinese government toward 
U.S. contractors. 

Many military analysts say 
they believe the Chinese mili- 
tary wants air traffic equipment 
that would have military appli- 
cations, but U.S. officials ada- 
mantly asserted that any tech- 

nology given would be for 
civilian purposes and would 
have to go through the usual 
technology export licensing 

Mr. Perry also urged Chinese 
officials to make their military 
budget and planning more open 
in order to avoid misunder- 
standings. Military analysts be- 
lieve China’s official military 
budget is a fraction of its true 
military spending, for example. 

In what was probably a refer- 
ence to Japan, Vietnam and 
Taiwan, a senior U.S. official 
said secrecy would only prompt 
China's neighbors look at 
worst-case scenarios.

GE Sells 
To Rival 

Conpikd tv Oar Staff From Dupas&a 

NEW YORK — General 
Electric Co. said Monday that it 
was selling most of its troubled 
brokerage subsidiary. Kidder 
Peabody & Co_, to Paine Web- 
ber Inc. in a stock deal valued at 
$670 million. 

In a joint statement, the com- 
panies said Paine Webber would 
acquire Kidder’s retail business, 
which includes 1,150 brokers in 
50 offices. 

Neither company said wheth- 
er there would be layoffs after 
the sale. But one unnamed GE 
executive said that half of Kid- 
der's 5,000 employees would be 
laid off. 

Acquiring Kidder makes 
PaineWebber the fourth-1 argest 
U.S. investment firm. 

GE will get a 25 percent stake 
in the combined enterprise, as 
well as a representative on 
PaineWebbefs board. It agreed 
to indemnify PaineWebber on 
all of Kidder’s existing liabil- 
ities, the companies said. 

GE also agreed to pay an 
average of two weeks’ severance 
for each year worked to laid-off 
Kidder employees. 

PaineWebber will also buy 
Kidder’s investment banking 
and other businesses. 

GE has plowed about $1.4 
billion into Kidder since ac- 
quiring the brokerage in 1986. 

GE and Kidder executives 
said that under the stock swap, 
GE will receive 21.5 million 
PaineWebber shares, valued at 

$320 milliftn, $100 milli on in 
convertible preferred stock and 
$250 milli on in preferred stock. 

GE’s shares closed un- 
changed at $50,375 on the New 
York Stock Exchange, while

Brewer’s Frothy Fortunes 

San Miguel, on a Roll, Looks Abroad 

By Kevin Murphy 

International Herald Tribune 

MANILA — Though few companies are 
better placed to profit from the nascent eco- 
nomic recovery in the Philippines. San Miguel 
Carp, is already looking abroad. 

Aided by a corporate streamlining and a 
strong upturn in consumer spending, the bev- 
erage, food and packaging concern reported 
Monday that its net profit soared 40 percent, 
to 3.1 billion pesos ($121.8 million), in the 
first eight months of this year from the like 
period last year. 

More of the same is expected, analysts say, 
as the newly stable Philippine economy prof- 
its from a wide-ranging program of structural 
reform that is leaving consumers — who 
spend about 60 percent of their income on 
food, beverages and tobacco — with more 
money to throw around. 

Economic growth in the Philippines hit 5.1 
percent in the first half of the year, sending 
economists scurrying to update their esti- 
mates. Now some of the more optimistic 
among them say growth could top 6 percent 
in 1995. 

Yet despite prospects for growth at home, 
San MigueTs most exciting opportunities may 
he in markets such as Indonesia, China and 
Nepal, the company says, as it comes under 
pressure from local competitors and the even- 
tual arrival of foreign rivals in its increasingly 
open home market 

“It will be a challenge to catch up with the 
growth in the Philippine market" Ddfin 
Gonzalez, San Miguel’s chief financial offi- 
cer, said. “It won’t be easy to expand here 
beyond our current relative size.” 

Already the largest company listed on the 
Philippine Stock Exchange, San Miguel’s 

turnover represents about 4 percent of gross 
national product The various taxes it pays 
account for 7 percent of government revenue. 

San Miguel dominates the local beer mar- 
ket, with close to a 90 percent share, and it 
sells Coca-Cola's line of soft drinks in the 
tropical, thirst-inducing Philippine climate. 

The recent end to the country's crippling 
electricity shortages, with power outages last- 
ing as long as 12 hours a day, suggests a

considerable upside for a producer of soft 
drinks, ice cream and other perishable food 

“Who wants to go out to eat in a hot, dark 
restaurant?” Mr. Gonzalez asked. 

A joint venture with Nestl£ SA bodes well 
for the development of San Miguel’s sales of 
dairy products and fruit drinks, while a 30 
billion peso modernization program since 
1988 promises greater efficiency m its pack- 
aging and meats divisions. 

“Consumer tastes and needs are going to 
change with more prosperity,” Mr. Gonzalez 
said, “and we are looking for opportunities in

Renault Valued 
At $7.4 Billion 
To Start Sell-Off 

Bloomberg Business flews 

PARIS — France valued 
state-owned Renault SA at be- 
tween 39 billion French francs 
($7.4 billion) and 425 billion 
francs Monday in its first step 
in the public sale of Europe's 
sixth-largest car maker and 
fourth-largest truck maker. 

The government said it 
planed to sell about 28 percent 
of the company to the public in 
the next few weeks. 

Investors worldwide, includ- 
ing institutional investors in the 
United States, can place orders 
for Renault shares beginning 
Tuesday, Economy Minister 
Edmond Alphand&y said. 

“It’s an important moment 
for the Paris stock market, since 
a major French industrial com- 
pany will be added,” Mr. Al- 
phandfay said. 

The sale will occur no later 
than Dec. 15, and probably by 
late November, and the exact 
price will be set the day before 
orders are filled. The govern- 
ment may slop accepting orders 
on or after Nov. 3. 

France could raise about 12 
billion francs from the sale and 
still hold 51 percent of Renault. 

The government said it would 
not give up control of the auto- 
maker, which employs about 

100,000 people in France, unless 
Renault fanned a strategic alli- 
ance with another company. 

The sale is part of the center- 
right government’s program to 
sell state-owned companies, 
both to decrease the state's role 
in industry and to raise cash to 
narrow the government budget 
deficit. France plans to raise 55 
billion francs both this year and 
next from asset sales. 

Starting Tuesday, individuals 
can place revocable orders for 
the shares from commercial and 
savings banks, and institutional 
investors must submit offers, 
which the government said 
could be from 163 francs to 178 
francs a share. 

The government plans to sell 
from 62 milli on to 70 million 
Renault shares to the public 
and 6 million to company em- 
ployees, reducing its stake in 
Renault to about 51 percent 
from 79 percent. 

The price range of 163 francs 
to 178 francs a share was estab- 
lished by the four advisory 
banks to the government and 
Renault and is in line with esti- 
mates by the state's privatization 
littee, which has nc

German Stocks Slip Amid Worry on Spending Policy 

By Brandon Mitchener 

International Herald Tribune 
FRANKFURT — Fiscal responsibil- 
ity, not the number of seats in Parlia- 
ment, will be the way markets ultimately 
judge the new-old German government, 
the Bundesbank and economists said 
Monday amid market jitters over the 
potential for fiscal slippage. 

While the Deutsche mark rose to a 
two- and -a- half -year high and bond 
prices climbed on Chancellor Helmut 
kohl's narrow election victory and the 
prospect of continuity in economic poli- 
cy, the 30-share German Stock Index 

succumbed to profit- taking, falling 
14.85 points to 2,090.88. 

The Bundesbank and others took the 
occasion to warn against any sign of 
wavering on the subject of the federal 

Hans Tietmeyer, the Bundesbank 
president, advised Mr. Kohl and his 
aides to work quickly to convince mar- 
kets of their will to consolidate federal 
government finances, beginning with ex- 
penditure cuts that would earn trust 
with financial markets — and the cen- 
tral bank. That trust is a condition for 
lower taxes in a later stage of fiscal 

consolidation, he told the Frankfurter 
Allgem cine Zeitung. 

Mr. Kohl, meanwhile, promised to 
continue his government’s “successful 
policies.” But some private economists 
warned that the opposition Social Dem- 
ocratic Party’s new strength in the upper 
house of Parliament could lead Mr. 
Kohl’s center-right coalition to flavor 
important legislation to the Social Dem- 
ocrats’ taste to ensure its passage. 

Given the opposition's ability to 
block legislation, “it Is doubtful whether 
the new government will have the politi- 
cal will and power to implement all the 

painful spending cuts” needed for debt 
reduction, Goldman, Sachs & Co. econ- 
omists said in a commentary. 

Others speculated on the potential for 
coalition infighting that could lead to 
another election before long. 

On the whole, however, economists 
appeared more relieved that Mr. Kohl 
will stay in power than worried about 
fiscal irresponsibility. 

“A consolidation of federal finances 
is already programmed,” said Annin 
Kayser, a senior economist at Swiss

Thinking Ahead /Commentary 

Changing the Rules for the EU Club 

By Reginald Dale 

International Herald Tribune 

something that sounds like 
an entertaining idea. 
France’s minister for Euro- 
pean affairs, Alain Lamassoure, is pro- 
posing that die European Union be enti- 
tled to throw out members it doesn’t like. 
One imagines Greece as the first to go, 

for economic incompetence and general 
obnoxiousness, with Britain and Den- 
mark next, for lack of commitment to the 
European ideaL 

Unfortunately, perhaps, that is not 
what Mr. Lamassoure is proposing. He is 
not trying to evict any of the Union’s 
current members. He is simply urging 
that dub rules be amended to provide for 
voluntary departure or expulsion, but 
only in tie most extreme cases of politi- 
cal apostasy. 

Neither of these is possible under the 
current rules. But as the club gets bigger 
and expends to Central Europe, Mr. La.- 
massoure says it would be wise to have 
such legal instruments at hand. 

The plan might suit some people ad- 
mirably. It coincides with a suggestion 
from Norman Lamont, a formerBiitish 
chancellor of the Exchequer, that his 
country may one day want to withdraw 
from the Union — a prospect that some 
of the Britain's long-suffering partners 
might view with relief. 

But it is alarming to many others — 
particularly to countries outside the 
Fiench-Gorman “hard core” now form- 

ing at the Union's center. In Washington 
last week. Prime Minister Anibal Cavaco 
Silva of Portugal weighed in heavily 
against the idea. 

His fear is that an expulsion proviso 
might be used to pressure or threaten 
countries unable to keep pace with the 
leaders. Rather than be disqualified from 
the Union, he argues, laggards should be 
granted waivers from the rules and en- 
couraged to catch up. 

Mr. Lamassoure, of course, is not tar- 
geting such good Europeans as the Por- 
tuguese. His specific concern is that the 

If a country tried to 
leave now, it would create 
a horrible legal mess. 

Union have the legal authority to evict a 
formes' Communist country that re- 
lapsed into totalitarianism after becom- 
ing a member. 

Other new entrants might want to 
leave voluntarily — perhaps after a 
change of government, Mr. Lamassoure 
says. Less tactfully, he adds, if exit pro- 
cedures had existed in the past, candi- 
dates for voluntary departure mi gh t have 
included Denmark after it rejected the 
Maastricht Treaty in June 1992, or Brit- 
ain if the Labor government had failed to 
renegotiate the terms of British entry in 
the 1970s. 

Mr. Lamassoure wants any divorce to 
be amicable. The departing country 

would withdraw from the Union’s cen- 
tral institutions but could stay in the 
single market. 

It is true that if a country tried to leave 
in present conditions, it would create a 
horrible legal mess. But the reality is that 
it would not be kepi in the Union against 
its will. If all the other members wanted 
to eject a relapsing communist country 
they would find a way to do so. 

The most serious objection to Mr. La- 
znassoure's plan is that it would chal- 
lenge a basic tenet of European integra- 
tion: that as membership is irrevocable, 
the only way to solve differences is to 
negotiate a compromise in which every- 
one’s interests are respected. 

While this approach has slowed the 
pace of integration, it has at least kept 
everyone on board. It is certainly much 
less likely to work in a Union of 20 or 
more members. 

But the French government and Mr. 
Lamassoure have already provided the 
answer by proposing a Europe of con- 
centric circles, m which the outer rings of 
countries are progressively less tightly 
bound to the center. 

Those unwil ling or unable to keep up 
with the leaders would settle in the circle 
that suited them best. Nobody would 
actually have to leave the Union. 

Juridically speaking, Mr. Lamas- 
soure’s suggestions make sense. But po- 
litically, they will arouse deep suspicions. 
To others, it will look too much as if 
France wants to set the terms of mem- 
bership for everyone else.

- LONDON— The South Ko- 
rean electronics manufacturer 
Samsung Electronics Co. said 
Monday it planned to build a 
plant in northeast England that 
would bring more than 3,000 
jobs to the area. 

The British government is 
putting up £38 million ($92 mil- 
lion) of the £450 milli on invest- 
jnent in grants and loans, said 
■the president of its Board of 
.Trade, Michael Hesdtme. Oth- 
er assistance is to come from 
local agencies. 

In addition, Samsung has 
chosen London for its Europe- 
an headquarters, Mr. Heseltme 
said, and says it will open re- 
search and development and 
, training centers in England: 

* “This reflects the effective 
partnership between govern- 
ment and local partners in at- 
tracting inward investment,” 
.Mr. Heseltine said in Seoul, 
where he met with Samsung of- 

Samsung said the plant in 
Wynyard, in the county of 
; Cleveland, would make a range 
' of electronic equipment, begin- 
ning with mi cto wave ovens and 
commuter monitors. The plant 
•will be completed in phases by 

Arrest Ordered 
In Fraud Case 

The Associated Png 

preme Court judge Mon- 
day ordered the arrest of 
the financier Javier de la 
Rosa for alleged fraud in- 
volving a loan to a compa- 
ny he formerly ran. 

The case was said to in- 
volve the company Gran 
Tibidabo, formed to build 
and ran a theme park in 
northeastern Spain. Mr. de 
la Rosa is suspected of 
fraud involving a 1 bSfion 
peseta ($8 million) loan to 
Gran Titadabo % Chase 
Manhattan Bank. 

The South Korean company, 
which was ran Ice d No. 14 m the 
1994 Fortune Global 500, has 

200.000 employees in 57 coun- 

It already has a television 
factory at Biningham, Cleve- 
land, employing 300 people. A 
British government agency re- 
cently offered the company £2 
million to expand this opera- 
tion to create 240 more jobs. 

Samsung said the new move 
was part of its globalization 
strategy. Two to three other 
fully integrated production 
complexes are being planned 
for Western Europe ana one for 
Eastern Europe. 

Mr. Heseltine said Samsung’s 
move “is a dear sign of their 
satisfaction with their experi- 
ence of manufacturing in the 
UJC- until now and of their 
longer-term confidence that the 
business environment in Britain 
will bring them success, here 
and in Europe.” 

Samsung said that the com- 
plex eventually will produce 1 
million computer monitors, 

250.000 facsimile machines, 

250.000 personal computers 
and 3 million monitor tubes as 
well as 8-inch wafer semicon- 

It said that a plant capable of 
producing 13 million micro- 
wave ovens a year would begin 
production next August and 
that there were plans to build a 
television factory.

VEVEY, Switzerland — 
Nestl6 SA, the Swiss conglom- 
erate best known for its choc- 
olate and coffee, is looking to 
achieve further growth by 
finding fresh markets for its 
existing food and beverage 
products rather than through 
more costly acquisitions. 

Nestlfc’s purchase last mouth 
of Alpo, the American dog 
food brand, from its British 
competitor Grand Metropoli- 
tan PLC was the latest m a 
string of takeovers that includ- 
ed the British chocolate-maker 
Rowntreein 1988 and France’s 
Source Perrier in 1992. More 
recently, Nestle purchased 
Buitoni SpA of Italy. 

Helmut Maucher, Nestle's 
chief executive, is generally 
credited with having awak- 
ened a sleeping giant during 
his 13 years in office. He says 
that roughly two-thirds of 
Nestlt’s growth over the last 
decade came through acquisi- 
tions and one-third through 
internal expansion. 

“In the next 10 years the 
ratio will reverse,'* Mr. 
Maucher said. “We’re in all 
the fields we want to be in.” 

Mr. Maucher is hardly 
averse to further takeovers. 
But the main impetus for 
growth, he says, will come 
from geographical spread and 

internal exp ansi on 

For example, Mr. Maucher 
talks of selling Buitoni pastas 
or Kit Kai chocolate oars in 
Japan, or making Maggi dehy- 
drated soups, which are popu- 

lar in Western Europe, in Slo- 

For the moment, the stron- 
gest growth is coming from 
Nest! 4* s geographic spread, 
Crfedit Suisse, in a recent re- 
port, estimated that Nestle’s 
growth outside the mature 
North American and Europe- 
an markets was averaging 
about 15 percent annually. 

The leading region is Easi 
Asia, where Mr. Maucher said 
the company’s business was 

growing by 10 percent to 13 
percent annually. 

The revival of Latin Ameri- 
ca’s economies has made the 
region Nestle's second largest 
growth area, after Asia. 

In Eastern Europe, Nestle 
has purchased chocolate fac- 
tories in Poland and the Czech 
Republic and Is packaging 
Nescafe instant coffee and 
Nesquik chocolate in Hungary. 

To soften up the Russian 
market. Nestle is importing

instant coffee from its fac- 
tories in India, awaiting the 
day when Russia's legal and 
business practices are mature 
enough for a direct entry. 

Analysts said Mr. Maucher 
had introduced an unaccus- 
tomed pragmatism into Nes- 
tle during bis tenure, stifling 
distaste for deals with the 
competition by entering suc- 
cessful joint ventures. 

Nestl6 now cooperates with 
General Mills Inc. to sell 
breakfast cereals such as 
Cheerios in 25 countries out- 
side the United States, cutting 
into Kellogg’s dominance in 
Europe and Asia. Nestle's ce- 
real sales with General Mills 
have grown to $390 million. 

Working with Coca-Cola 
Co.. Nestte sells soft drinks 
such as Nestea iced tea and 
coffee in cans. 

Mr. Ma.ucher’s acquisitions 
have focused on Nesti&'s core 
businesses of food and bever- 
ages, where the goal was to 
obtain a commanding market 
share for Nestlfe brands. 

An illustration of this was 
Nestle's push into the mineral 
water business, where it be- 
came the world leader after 
taking over Perrier in France. 
With a buying spree in the 
United States, Nestl6 ac- 
quired Arrowhead water in 
California and Poland Spring 
in Maine. Nestle now com- 
mands a quarter of the Ameri- 
can market. 

“Springs are like petro- 
leum,” Mr. Maucher said. 
“You can always build a choc- 
olate factory. But springs, you 
have or you don’t have.”

Roche Plans to Cut 5,000 Workers as Sales Slump 

Compiled by Our S&gf From Duptadua 

BASEL, Switzerland — Roche Hold- 
ineAG said Monday it would cut about 
5,000 employees over the next several 
months as it absorbs operations of the 
US. diugmaker Syntex Carp, and com- 
bats stagnant sales. 

The drag and chemical company also 
announced flat nine-month sales of 
10.73 billion francs ($8 billion), saying 
the strong Swiss currency had eroded 

earnings. In local currencies, it said, 
sales rose 6 percent 

It said it would take a restructuring 
charge of about 230 million francs this 
year but still expected higher profit. 

“Barring extraordinary events, net in- 
come for the 1994 business year can be 
expected to show a further rise over 1 993 
despite a charge for additional reserves 
of about 230 million francs for the 

planned restructuring of the pharma- 
ceuticals division,” Roche said. 

Although the sales were at the lower 
end of expectations, analysts were en- 
couraged by the restructuring because it 
showed Roche was proceeding swiftly 
with the integration of Syntex. 

But Roche’s stock fell to 5,800 francs 
from 5,905 francs. 

Roche, the inventor of the tranquiliz- 
ers Librium and Valium, completed its 

$5.3 billion buyout of Syntex. a pioneer 
in birth-control pills, on Aug. 31. 

The job cuts, amounting to about 8 
percent of the combined work force, mil 
come mostly through attrition and some 
early retirements, but some layoffs will 
be unavoidable, said Gaston von Glutz, 
Roche spokesman. 

Roche said the job cuts, which are 
already under way, would come all over 
the world. ( AP, Bloomberg, Reuters)

pockets where things could be 
.■better, but on the whole we are 
very happy with the way llnngs 
are moving." 

• But bigger markets beckon, 
particularly for its famous beer. 

At the beguuing of the 
1990s, 10 percent of company 
revenue came from overseas 
markets. Now that figure is 15 
percent to 16 percent, with 20 
percent the target for 2000. 

The group has ice cream inter- 
ests in Guam and Taiwan, a 
plastic packaging plant in soutb- 

era China and a shrimp feed 
factoiy in China's Fujian Prov- 
ince. It is also negotiating for a 
glass factory in Vietnam while 
scouting India for opportunities. 

leading earnings in the near 
future, however, wm be brewing 
interests in Hong Kong, Indo- 
nesia, Vietnam and China, 
where the group is soon to an- 
nounce a major expansion, as 
wdl as a small stake in Nepal’s 
Mount Everest brewery. 

“In China a lot of deals can 
be dosed in the short teem,” 
Mr. Gonzalez said, “but you 
really have to know what you're 
getting into.” He rejected the 

criticism of some analysts that 
San Mrgud has been too tenta- 
tive in capitalizing on its pres- 
ence there. 

San Miguel’s beer sales are 
growing 20 percent a year in 
China, which has eclipsed the 
company’s traditional strong- 
hold in Hong Kong, where it is 
the leading brew. The growth 
has prompted the need to add 
brewing capadty, but the com- 
pany says its most difficult 
work remains to be done. 

“We could sell it all at the 
gate,” said Mr. Gonzalez of a 
market now 10 times larger than 
thm in the Philippines. “But at 

the end of the day, the China 
market will be a distribution 
game. We’re working hard to get 
control over the market and the 
way our beer is distributed." 

Judging from the market re- 
sponse to a recent bond offering 
by San Miguel, international in- 
vestors appear to believe the i 
company’s approach to China 
and Asia is working. 

The company was able to sell 
$115 million of bonds at 190 
basis points, or 1.9 percentage 
points, above the five-year US. 
Treasury note, a better rate 
than the Philippine govern- 
ment’s most recent bond issue.

Honda Focuses on Asia 

Carmaker Invests in Thailand Factory 

Compiled fa Our Staff From Dtspmdies 

TOKYO — Taking advan- 
tage of a booming Southeast 
Asian market while protect- 
ing itself from a strong yen. 
Honda Moior Co. said Mon- 
day it would build a $100 mil- 
lion car plant in Thailand 

Toyota Motor Corp., the 
top automaker in Japan, also 
announced plans to increase 
production in Thailand. 

Honda said the factory 
would allow it to increase 
production in Thailand to as 
much as 100,000 cars a year 
from 36,000 currently. 
Toyota said it would raise 
output at its Thai plant by 50 
percent over three years. 

Toyota is also considering 
expanding its factory in the 
Philippines. The company al- 
ready has plants in Indonesia, 
Malaysia and Taiwan. 

All Japanese carmakers 
have seen their revenue re- 
duced as the rise in the yen 
cuts into proceeds from over- 
seas sales when these are con- 
verted back into yen. 

Because the automakers 
get as much as 60 percent of 
their revenue from overseas 
sales, production outside Ja- 
pan reduces the currency risk 
and moves production closer 
to their growing markets. 

The yen’s strength has tak- 
en a heavy toll this year: 
Honda said its revenue was 
cut by 26 billion yen ($262 
million; in its last quarter be- 
cause of the yen, and Toyota 
lost 160 billion yen Lo nega- 
tive currency translations in 
its latest full year.

automakers had finished the

work of budding production 
plants in North America and 
will now shift to developing 
markets such as Asia. 

Demand for cars in South- 
east Asia has been growing at 
a phenomenal rate as incomes 
and living standards rise. 

Toyota said sales in 1993 in 
the six nations of the Associa- 

tion of Southeast Asian Na- 
tions grew 18.5 percent from 
a year earlier. Sales in Thai- 
land, where the economy 
surged more than 8 percent 
last year, grew 26 percent

Firm Finally Gets Mini van in Gear 

By Andrew Pollack 

New York Times Service 

TOKYO — Honda Motor Co. will attempt 
to plug a major hole in its product tine Thurs- 
day when it comes out with its first minivan. 
The name of the van, Odyssey, could not be 
more appropriate. 

The Odyssey is only the first step in what is 
likely to be a long journey for Honda, as it 
tries to catch up in a booming pan of the 
vehicle market that it has ignored for years. 

Honda officials have said they hope to 
make up for their late start by creating a new 
type of vehicle, combining die spaciousness 
of a minivan and the maneuverability of a car. 

Analysts said the Odyssey, which will go on 
sale immediately in Japan and early next year 
in the United States and Europe, did have 
some innovative features. It also has short- 
comings, including a high price and a small 
engine, both of which mil limit its appeal in 
the American market. 

“It’s a very good vehicle, but it's not fully 
competitive with the U.S. vans,” said Chris 
W. Cedergren of AutoPadfic Inc., a consult- 
ing firm. “What they’re trying to do is get 
their feet wet,” 

Honda has fairly limited ambitions. To 
start, it is planning to sell about 30,000 vehi- 
cles a year in the United States. By contrast, 
Chrysler Corp. is expected to sell more than 
500,000 of its Dodge Caravan and Plymouth 
Voyager vans this year. 

Honda has always believed in focusing on 
passenger cars, ignoring commercial vehicles. 
That philosophy caused it lo miss out on the 
rapidly growing markets for minivans, pick- 
ups and sport-utility vehicles in the American 

market, an egregious blunder for a company 
that sells more cars in the United States than 
it does in Japan. 

These types of vehicles account for about 
40 percent of the American market, and is 
remains the only major manufacturer that ha< 
not begun competing for this market share. 

Honda executives in Japan have been talk- 
ing for a year about how innovative the new 
mini van would be. Company engineers code- 
named the Odyssey P J. — for personal jet. 

The new vehicle is indeed car-like in some 
respects and is based on the chassis used in 
the popular Accord. It is somewhat narrower 
and shorter than most mini vans in the United 
States. It has four conventional car doors, as 
in a sedan, rather than the rear sliding door 
found in most minivans. 

The Odyssey also has a four-cylinder, 22- 
liter gasoline engine, smaller than the V-6 
engines common in American minivans. 

The Odyssey will be pricey. In Japan, the 
base model will start at about 2 million yen, 
or about $20,000. In the United States the 
Odyssey is expected to sell for $22,000 to 
$26,000, compared with a range of $18,000 to 
$25,000 for many competitors. 

One reason for the high price in the United 
States is that the van will be manufactured in 
Japan, and its export price will reflect the 
strength of the yen. 

Honda is already developing a V-6 engine 
for the Accord, and that engine will eventually 
become an option far the Odyssey. By 2000, 
Mr. Cedergren of AutoPadfic predicted, 
Honda wfll introduce a minivan designed and 
manufactured in the United States and aimed 
more specifically at the American market.

India Eases 
Rules on 
Loan Rates, 
Fees to Fall 

BOMBAY — India partly 
deregulated interest rates Mon- 
day in the latest phase of its 
economic reform program, and 
bankers said they expected 
prime rates to falL 

Officials at the Reserve Bank 
of India said the move was part 
of a phased program to bring in 
lower interest rates. 

Under the new guidelines, 
commercial hanks will be free 
starting Tuesday to decide how 
much to charge on loans of more 
than 200,000 rupees ($6,38?;, 
Alarm Killawala, the central 
bank’s spokeswoman, said. 

Bankers said (he lower rates 
would help stimulate India’s 
economy in the fourth year of 
reforms aimed at integrating 
the country into the global 

Officials at Indian brokerage 
booses said the move should 
lead to a rate cut of about one 
percentage point, but some 
bankers said the cuts would be 
two to 25 percentage points. 

Until now, banks have been 
required to charge a minimum 
interest rate on loans above 
200,000 rupees. That rate, cur- 
rently 15 percent, was the 
benchmark rate for all bank 
lending in India and was set by 
the central bank. 

Interest rates on loans be- 
tween 25,000 and 200,000 ru- 
pees are fixed at 135 percent, 
the central bank said. Loans of 
less than 25,000 rupees are fixed 
at 12 percent. 

A bank governor, Chakra- 
varty Rangarajan, outlining the 
bank's credit policy for the next 
six months, also eased credit 
controls on cotton and rice and 
raised borrowing limits for ma- 

^ infrastructure projects to 5 
on rupees a project from 2 
billion rupees. 

The bank said it would also 
free up 28 billion rupees by cut- 
ting reserve requirements of 
commercial banks. 

The interest-rate deregula- 
tion allows banks to set their 
own prime lending rates. 

“Banks would be required to 
obtain the approval of their re- 
spective boards for the prime 
lending rate, which will be the 
minimum rate charged by the 
banks for credit limits of over 
200,000 rupees," the central 
bank said. Nearly all large 
banks in India have been owned 
by the government since they 
were nationalized in 1969. 

Bankers said the Reserve 
Bank's move, which was an- 
nounced after the close of trad- 
ing on India’s stock markets, 
bad taken them by surprise.

Shaky Start by Manila Issue 


MANILA — Shares in a tele- 
communications company 
making its debut on the Philip- 
pine Stock Exchange suffered 
Monday because of controversy 
over revelations that its chair- 
man had a U.S. criminal con- 
viction, brokers said. 

But they also said that a five 
million peso ($196,000) fine im- 
posed by the exchange against 
the issue's lead underwriters 
would help the market, making 
it dear to investors that authori- 
ties were serious about enforcing 
trading rules. 

Liberty Telecom Holdings 
Inc., a mobile-phone company 
headed by Raymond Moreno, 
ended its first day of trading at 
265 pesos after opening at 280. 
The shares, offered to the public 

at 250, reportedly had been 
trading at 350 on the gray mar , 
fcet before the listing. 

Patrick Garcia of L. M. Gar- 
da & Associates noted “nervous 
selling on the issue.” 

The local lead underwriter. 
Peregrine Capital Philippines 
Inc., was fined for making a 
“late and incomplete” disclosure 
that Mr. Moreno had paid 
$30,000 in fines and $970,000 in 
a related U5. civil action in 
1987. The charges against him 
arose from a Justice Department 
inquiry into an alleged conspira- 
cy to siphon $3 million from a 
government-financed telecom- 
munications project 

Peregrine has denied it was at 
fault and has asked the exchange 
to review the fine.

Struggling Saints WS3S& 
Easy Prey for ***'’■■-**■ 
Perfect Chargers 

The Associated Press 

They are 6-0 and the Nation- 
al Football League’s only un- 
beaten team. They are off to 
their best start since going 1 1 -0 
to open the 1961 season. 

Things are indeed looking 
good for the San Diego Char- 
gers, their latest bit of promis- 
ing news a 36-22 decision over 
the Saints in New Orleans. 

“We're playing well" said 
quarterback Stan Humphries, 


who completed 17 of 29 passes 
for 186 yards on Sunday. “I 
think this team can go as far as 
it wants.” 

But Natrone Means, who 
rushed for three touchdowns 
and had two others called back 
on holding penalties, sees no 
point in making projections. 

“We’re happy, but we're level- 
headed,” he said. “We’re going 
to keep working at winning.” 

The Chargers scored on seven 
of their first eight possessions 
and dropped the Saints to 2-5. 

After tr ailing 27-7 at the half, 
the Saints pulled to 33-22 with 
9:39 left But on their next pos- 
session, Derek Brown fumbled 
and San Diego recovered at the 
New Orleans 12. putting the 
game away. 

John Carney, the San Diego 
kicker, added five Geld goals to 
Means's three rushing TDs. 

San Diego dominated from 
the start scoring on its first five 
possessions. On the sixth, 
Humphries knelt with the ball 
to run out the dock. 

Playing almost flawlessly, the 
Chargers had only two offen- 
sive penalties, no turnovers and 
allowed one sack despite heavy 
Saints pressure. 

By halftime, the Chargers 
had outgained New Orleans 235 
yards to 1 12. Means ran for 75 
yards, induding three touch- 

downs — a 1 6-yard er and 8- 
y aider in the first quarter and a 
1-yard run in the second. 

Carney hit two second-quar- 
ter field goals, from 49 and 31 
yards. He added scores from 29 
yards twice in the third quarter 
and from 28 in the fourth. 

New Orleans scored on two 
touchdown passes from Jim Ev- 
erett — an I8-yarder to Quinn 
Early and a 1-yard toss to Irv 
Smith. Lorenzo Neal added a 1- 
yard scoring run. _ 

Cowboys 24, Eagles 13: In 
Irving, Texas, Emmitt Smith 
ran for 106 yards and one 
touchdown and Troy Aikman 
threw two TD passes against 
Philadelphia as Dallas took sole 
possession of first place in the 
NFC East. 

Smith broke the team record 
shared by Bob Hayes and 
Frank Clarke with a touchdown 
in his eighth straight game. Aik- 
man surpassed the club mark 
held by Don Meredith and 
Roger Staubach with a TD pass 
in 12 consecutive games. 

Dallas (5-1) intercepted four

quarter and the Rams sent New 
York to its third straight loss. 

The Rams (3-4) made the lead 
stand up. shutting out the Giants 
(3-3) in the second half. New

reer-high 150 yards, including a 
26-yard jaunt that led to Pete

goal 5:46 into overtime. Parma- 
lee also recovered a fumbled 
punt by Tim Brown that set up 
the tying TD in the fourth quar- 
ter. and made a hard hit that 
gave Rocket Ismail a slight con-

The Dolphins 1 5-2) won de-

Jeff Hostetler (8-of-23) was

Coach An Shell on the sidelines.

Washington Post Sen K? 

WASHINGTON — There was a brief silence 
at Florida Field as the Auburn wide receiver 
Frank Sanders landed in the end zone with the 
winning touchdown pass in his hands. It was 
only a brief interlude, between the moment the 
breath went out of the more than 80.000 Flonda 
fa ns and the moment the Auburn fans realized 
that their team had just toppled the No. 1 Gators 
and began hollering. 

It could be the last silent moment of the 
college football season. Get ready for more heal- 
ed debates over who should be No. 1 and more 
clamoring for a playoff system now that the 
latest national rankings are out. 

In the .Associated Press media poll Auburn — 
the 7-0 team that beat the former top-ranked team 
on the road — is No. 4. Nebraska — the 7-0 team 
with the most first-place votes — is ranked third, 
having fallen a spot after beating what had been 
the No. 16 — Kansas State — on the road. 

Colorado, which is 6-0 after playing the toughest 
schedule of any of the contenders, is No. 2. 

And 6-0 Peirn State, the team ranked behind 
Nebraska last week, is No. 1 with a head 
coach who savs that it’s insignificant. 

“I really don’t care about polls." Joe Paterae 
said after his Nittany Lions scored a critical 31- 
24 victory at then-No. 5 Michigan on Saturday. 

“We've got five more tough games to play and 
the polls don't really matter,” he added. “We'll 
worry about what the polls have to say after the 
next five games.” 

Penn State had 19 first-place votes and 1.487 
points. Colorado had 15 first-place votes and 
1.474 points. Nebraska had 25 first-place votes, 
but only 1,463 points. Auburn had three first- 
place votes and 1.402 points. Florida fell to fifth. 

Nebraska also was overtaken in the USA To- 
day/CNN coaches* poll. The Corahuskers main- 
tained their No. 2 ranking and had 31 first-place 
votes (and 1.498 points), but Penn State jumped 
to No. 1 from No. 3. receiving 22 first-place 
votes and 1.504 points. 

When asked why his team didn’t advance to 
the top spot despite its 17-6 victory' on Saturday- 
over Kansas State, Nebraska's coach. Tom Os- 
borne. said: “I think we beat a pretty good team, 
and yet certainly beating K-State doesn't get the 
same respect that Penn State beating Michigan 
does or maybe Colorado beating Oklahoma.” 

“We keep coming away with victories against 
ranked teams, which is great, but they keep 
talking about the Aubums and the Floridas.” 
said the Colorado tailback Rashuan Salaam, who 
scored four touchdowns in Colorado's 45-7 vic- 
tory over Oklahoma. ”1 just can't wait until Oct. 
29. We'll see who's number one.” 

That’s when Colorado travels to Nebraska in 
what looms as the biggest showdown left until 
the January bow! games. Penn State has a week 

off before playing Ohio State at home. The toad 
to its first Big Ten Conference champwishm 

to its first Big Jen Lonicrcncc championship 
gets easier after that, with games against Indiana 
Illinois, Northwestern and Michigan Slate. 

Lack of respect is still the refrain coming from 
Auburn, which has won 18 consecutive game* 
and is responsible for creating this mesa fcv 
breaking Florida’s hold on the top spoL 
The Tigers are ineligible for rateiscason play 
and aren't included in tnc coaches’ pcdl because of 
National Collegiate Athletic Association sanc- 
tions. Saturday was their best chance to advance 
their came by beating a higher-ranked team, al- 
though they can still make a case by beating No. $ 
Alabama (7-0) in the final game of the season. 

“If they don’t give us respect after this one, 
that’s just tough, said Auburn's quarterbad. 

Who should be No. 1? The 
arguments are strong in every 
case, which is one reason why 
the voting is so close. 

Patrick Nix. “I don't think there’s a doubt who 
the No. I team in the nation right now is. Every- 
body said there was no doubt Florida was, so 
when you come and beat them in their place . . .** 
And then there's the bowl coalition poll, which 
combines the teams' point totals in the media 
and coaches' polls in an attempt to formulate the 
best possible bowl matchups — but does not 

determine a national champion. In that 
Penn State is No. 1, followed by Nebraska. < 

rado, Auburn and Florida. 

So who should be No. I? The arguments arc 

strong in every case, which is one reason why the 
voting is so close. 

voting is so close. 

Penn State has produced astronomical offen- 
sive statistics and Saturday erased the knock that 
it hadn't played a real team. Colorado has routed 
Wisconsin, the defending Rose Bowl champion, 
won at Michigan in the most dramatic game of 
the season and has victories over Texas and 
Oklahoma. Nebraska began the season strongly 
and is undefeated. 

But die Corahuskers’ victories against West 
Virginia and UCLA, which were both in the top 
25 at the start of the season, look weaker and 
weaker as both of those teams struggle. 

Auburn is undefeated and won at Flonda, $ 
greatest test on a weak schedule. But should a 
team on probation be national champion?

to ( j 1(k rj, ^Bringing It all Back Home: Chang, His Father and Tennis in Beijing 

***•» ftl if; 


Wf » 

By Ian Thomsen 
humatimal fferaUTHbme 
A generation ago, Joe Chang set off 
from China like a wave crossing lo 
the other end of the world. In Ameri- 
ca, he met his wife. Betty, who is also 
Chinese. He graduated from night 
school and they raised, their two sons 
in a house with a stately Chinese 
roan and a casual American 

ftuhottldli,. V Mi, 

m*ut, - ' 1)lf 

family room with a big TV at one end. 
Eventually, they would set off again 
toward Joe Chang's homeland. 

! His younger son, Mkhad, had a 
unique talen t for tgnnt^ »wH the fam- 
ily grew used to traveling abroad with 

■ him Michael Chang believes there is 
a puipose behind every movement, 
pushing everything along. 

The Changs were in Paris at the 
French Open in June 1989, where 
Micbad, men 17, would become the 
.Grand Slam titHst ever. He 
family spent much of that 

week around the TV in their hotel 
room, watching the Chinese govern- 
ment’s violent crackdown on democ- 
racy protesters in Beijing. 

“That’s one of the reasons I feel 
God really allowed me to win that 
tournament,” Chang said. “That was 
a very down period for the whole 
Chinese race. Even though I was 
bom in the U.S., I was sml feeling 
for them. It was a period of nothing 
going right for the Chinese people. 
With the French Open happening 
the way it did, here at least was 
something gang good — if oily to 
look in the paper and to take that 
much out of it.” 

His perspective of Asia, while per- 
haps broader than the typical Amer- 
ican view, was limited to the pain felt 
by his parents. What could he do to 
help? As circumstances played 
themselves out, he became the first 
Asian player to win a Grand Slam 

singles ode. He has become the 
Asian pioneer of his sport 

“It was difficult to watch the news 
about it even a couple of years lat- 
er,” he said Monday by telephone 
from Beijing. “When I traveled, I 
would watch CNN and they would 
always show very dramatic scenes of 
Tiananmen Square, updating things. 
To see it on TV was just very heart- 

For every action there is a reac- 
tion, for every movement a purpose. 
Chang can’t explain all of it He only 
knows that his father’s family left 
China, leaving everything behind as 
the Communist government was 
taking hold. The family had owned 
something of a plantation, “almost a 
kind of town of its own,” Chang 
said. Now Chang is helping his fa- 
ther go home at the age of 53. 

.Until the last year or two. Chang 
always defined his family culture 

against the flashier American back- 

g round. The boys were raised with a 
unuflity that doesn’t sell well in 
America. It hasn’t isolated <"Tn*ng as 
much as it has defined him. He is 22, a 
professional for seven years, ranked 
No. 7 iu the world with winnings of 

more than SS TniTH rm — and he lives 

at home with his parents and his older 
brother, Carl, who is Ms coach. 

“When the typical American 
reaches 20, 21, he’s expected to go out 
and find an apartment and Hve by 
himself " Chang said. “In Chinese 
culture, it’s a joy to the parents to 
have the children live at home while 
they can until they're married. Chi- 
nese famili es have a lot of respect for 
eiders, for parents, for grandparents.” 

“I fed like I’m more Chinese than 
American because of .the things we 
do, the things we eat,” he added. 

As the ATP Tour has moved to- 
ward China — also branching out in 
Aria from Tokyo, Hong Kong and 

Seoul to Malaysia and Indonesia — 
Chang has moved with iL If he is 
perceived as a heroic underdog in 
the United States, a champion in 
spite of standing only 5 feet, 8 inches 
(1.75 meters), in Asia he is consid- 
ered less the underdog, more the 
champion. The hows and whys of his 
play are as important as the results. 
Humility may be a weakness in the 
American marketplace, but it was 
still a strength in Joe Chang’s coun- 
try as the ATP Tour made its debut 
in Beijing a year ago. 

“In America, I notice when we 
play Davis Cup that the mentality is 
to be very confident, to say very 
confident things — like, T fed good, 
I should win this match no prob- 
lem,* ” he said. “I think the Chinese 
or Asian mentality is to be more 
subtle about things, to let your work 
do all of the talking, to not boast 
about anything, but to be very 
thankful for the thing * you have.” 

So tennis took its first real steps in 
China last year in the shoes of Joe 
Chang's youngest son. The son isn’t 
sure how to characterize his feelings. 
People who know Mm say be was 
more determined than ever to win. 
Chang said he only wanted to do 
everything he could to help tennis 
take root in China. About 5 million 
Chinese play tennis, but many more 
play table tennis or squash. 

Who’s to say how much China will 
change international sports in the 
coining decades? In a short time, the 
Chinese have come to dominate 
women’s distance running, swim- 
ming and diving. Perhaps some suc- 
cess will be traced to an illicit use of 
drags, but a greater factor will likely 
be the unique Chinese approach, un- 
bridled by Western psychology. In 
that case, the West will certainly 
react, because there always is a reac- 
tion. One part of the world w HI learn 
more about the other. 

For his part, Chang was trying to 
set things in motion as he accepted 
the trophy for winning the Beijing 
Open last year and spoke to his fa- 
thers people, and his own. 

He took a deep breath — admit- 
tedly nervous — and said in Manda- 
rin: “First, I apologize for my Chi- 
nese. 1 want you to know that the 
Lord Jesus is definitely my strength 
and my love and my me. 1 will defi- 
nitely be coming back to see you.” 

A total of 20,000 came to that 
tournament to see professional ten- 
nis in China for the first time. Most 
came to see Chang. 

The second Beijing Open begins 
Tuesday, and Michael Chang's 
opening match will be televised 
across the world’s largest nation. 
Another generation from now, the 
Chinese may attribute their success 
in tennis to the pioneering American 
who came home. May Joe Chang live 
to see iL

Lolas Makes a Mark in Italy 

Fans Toast American After Defeat of Milan 


The Associated Pros 

PADUA, Italy — Atari Lalas made soccer 
history and became the toast of Italians tired 
of the dominance of AC Milan. 

The 24-year-old defender scored the first 
gpal ever by an Amcrican-bom player in the 
Italian League as he led underdog Padova to a 
2-0 victory Sunday over the defending Euro- 
pean unH I talian champion. 

“Lalas plays, Milan dances,” said Rome’s 
Comere adlo Sport of the American, who 
sings and plays a guitar in a rock group. 

“Lalas sings the end of an era,” chimed in 
La Gazzetta ddlo Sport 

T -alas, who played for Rutgers and theU.S. 
World Cup team, scored in the 23d minutefor 
Padova, promoted to the first division this 
season after 32 years in the lower division. 

Defender Franco Gabrieli added a second 
in the 61st inmate to wrap up Padova’s 
: victory after four losses and a tie. 

“I don’t intend to stop hoe,” said Lalas, 
who nearly scored a gain in an offensive rush 
late in the second half. “1 want to score more 
goals and hope they are as important as my 
goal against Milan.” 

Said Stefano Edd, a soccer columnist for 
die Padua newspaper E Mattino: “Lalas is a 
personality, and that’s new for Italian soccer. 
He’s not only the first American, but he's 

After the World Cup, Lalas also had offers 

to play in the Eng lish and Goman first divi- 

“I tried to picture myself in 20 years and 
would I regret giving up the chance of being 
the first American to play in Italy,” Talas 

So, on loan from the U.S. Soccer Federa- 
tion, he signed on for a year with Padova. 

Lalas scored Padova’s first goal of the year 
when the team shocked the traditional power- 
house Intemarionale of Milan in a 1 -0 victory 
in an Italian Cap 

The victoty Sunday was especially sweet 
coming against heavily favored Mflan, the 
team that is owned by Prime Minister Silvio 
Berinsconi and that has dominated European 
soccer in recent years. 

Lalas, whose red hair and goatee have in- 
spired Italian comparisons to the Wild West 
showman Buffalo Bill Cody, jumped advertis- 
ing boards surrounding the field and ran 

ed the referee to assess him a yellow caxdYor 
im proper conducL 

“I can’t understand it,” Lalas was quoted 
as saying by Milan’s Corn ere della Sera. *Tm 
the first American to score in your league and 
they penalize me. Certain rules seem strange.” 

I -aias 's p lans after the season aids are 
unclear. He is mi loan and said he might be 
lined by the U.S. professional league that is 
supposed to start play next spring.

Orioles Vick a First-Time Manager 

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles chose Phil Regan 
as their new manager, gambling that the baseball savvy he gained 
over several decades would outweigh his lack of managerial 
experience at the major-league levd. 

Regan, 57, was given a two-year contract with a dub option for 
the third year. He replaces Johnny Oates, who was fired on SepL 
. 26. Regan was pitching coach for two American League teams, 
most recently with the 1994 Cleveland Indians, and spent seven 
years as a scout for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He also has 
managed teams in the winter leagues in the Dominican Republic 
or Venezuela since 1985. 

“People asked me why I kept going back there 10 years in a row, 
and I can honestly say this is why,” Regan said. “I wanted to be a 
■ major-league manager, and one of the ways I could do that was to 
go to the winter leagues and show everybody that I could manage.” 

Estes Wins Texas Golf by a Stroke 

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (AP) — Bob Estes, buoyed by a four- 
stroke lead entering the final round, shot a l-unctar-par 70 on 
Sunday to win the Texas Open golf tournament for the first 
.victory of his seven-year career. 

y Estes, the leader an the way, won by a stroke, covering the Oak 
Hills Country Club course in 19-tmder 265. GB Morgan finished 
second at 266 after a bogey-free round of 67 and DonPodey was 
-another shot back at 68-267.

What’s in a Word? In NHL Lockout, Maybe a Lot 

La s Angeles Tbnes Service 

though the National Hockey 
League has called its work stop- 
page a postponement and has 
disputed the use of the term 
“lockout,” die league is expect- 
ed to concede — perhaps this 
week — that the stoppage that 
started OcL 1 is a lockouL 
In about 20 states, that 
means hockey players would be 
eligible to file for unemploy- 
ment benefits. 

Not that many would lake 
advantage of that status. But 
the official declaration of a 
lockout might give them stron- 
ger legal footing if they wanted 
to pursue other temporary play- 
ing opportunities. 

“Right now, the whole thing 
is based on calling it a post- 
ponement,” said Ron Salcer, an 
agent who is looking into plac- 
ing players with European dobs 
and in the International Hock- 
ey League. “The league has 

maintained it will be a full 84- 
game season. Once you say 
they're locked out, if you get 
before a court of law, I think it 
will be different” 

From OcL 1, when the season 
was scheduled to start, NHL 
officials insisted that the stop- 
page was a delay and not a 
lockout because games would 
be made up later, not lost 
“Players are being told they 
can practice, but the only way 
they get paid is if there's a 

game, and they’re not letting 
them play any games,” said 
William S. Waldo, an attorney 

who repres 
labor dispi 

3 resents management in 
; ~>Utes. “I’ve done this 

for 17 years. That’s a lockouL” 

But the NHL’s last bit of pre- 
tense is about to disappear. 
With its original OcL 1 starting 
date long past and its second 
proposed date wiped out on 
Saturday because of a bargain- 
ing stalemate, games are certain 
to be losL 

Players will have more time 
to pursue other jobs, but only a 
few are expected to do so be- 
cause of insurance concerns. In- 
ternational Hockey League 
clubs are reluctant to sign high- 
priced NHL talenL 

Although Rent FaseL the In- 
ternational Ice Hockey Federa- 
tion’s president, said last week 
that he would not let European 
clubs sign idled NHL players, 
some said they would do so 

Games Rift 
Is Revived 
By China 

The Associated Press 

BEIJING — China lavished 
praise cm its athletes Monday 
for taking the lion’s share of 
gold medals during the Asian 
Games, and lashed out at Tai- 
wan and Japan. 

Chin a had threatened to boy- 
cott the Games in Hiroshima, 
Japan, unless Vice Prime Minis- 
ter Hsu Li-teh of Taiwan was 
banned from the opening cere- 
monies on OcL 2. Hsu went, 
and Beijing set the issue aside 
and competed anyway. 

Chinese athletes won 137 
gold medals — 41 percent of the 
total and far more than any 
other country. 

“Thor glorious achievement 
shows that the people of China 
in its period of economic re- 
form and opening have a vigor- 
ous fighting spirit,” said a com- 
mentary in the official 
newspaper People’s Daily. 

After the games ended Sun- 
day, China resumed its criti- 
cism of Taipei and Tokyo for 
defying its protests. 

The official Xinhua news 
agency said Monday that Ja- 
pan’s government damaged re- 
lations with China by allowing 
Hsu to attend the Games, al- 
though it did not elaborate on 
any consequences. 

It said Japan violated prom- 
ises made to Beijing when it 
established diplomatic relations 
with China and cut official ties 
with Taiwan. 

Hsu said he attended the 
games not as a government fig- 
ure, but only to promote Tai- 
wan's bid to stage the 2002 
Asian Games. 

But Xinhua accused Japan 
and Taiwan of repudiating Beij- 
ing’s insistence on recognition 
of only one China. 

U.K. Scientists Study Horse Virus 


LONDON — Veterinary authorities in Australia have 
called in Britain’s Animal Health Trust to help fight a virus 
that killed a horse trainer and 14 horses in Queensland. 

As well as affecting horses there are fears the virus is 
virulent in humans and a range of other animals. 

James Wood, head of the epidemiology unit at the Trust, 
said the virus came from the family that causes measles in 
humans and distemper in dogs. He said scientists in Australia 
had grown the vims experimentally and injected it into four 
healthy horses. Three of them died. 

The Queensland authorities’ 21-day ban on racing in the 
state was lifted earlier last week.

White Flag Over Berlin 


1I7ASHINGTON —The one 

YV difference between World 
War n and the present police 
actions is the way in which we 
treat our enemies. Haiti is a 
good example. 

General Raoul Cedras is the 
loser. He is said to have led a 
junta that 
hilled and ter- 
rorized thou- 
sands of peo- 
ple. He is also 
said to have 
stolen the 
country blind. 

Knowing all of 
this the United 
States has de- 
cided to give 
him back his 
millions and also pay him rent 
for property he owns in Port-

I couldn't help thinking that 
if poor Adolf Hitler hadn’t 
done himself in at the end of his 
illustrious career, he might have 
come out O. K. 


If we had had a similar policy 
in 1945, as we have now con- 
cerning our enemies, this is 
what would have happened: 

One of our people, possibly 
former President Herbert Hoo- 
ver, would visit Hitler in his

you to surrender.” 


“Wait before you say no. 
Well let you keep Berchtesga- 
den and all your properties in 

“What good are they?” 

“Well rent them from you at 
$40,000 a month. Our Treasury' 
Department will put the funds 
in escrow in Switzerland.” 

everyone involved with the Na- 
zis daring World War II. In 
addition to amnesty we will pay 
a pension to anybody who can 
prove that he was a war crimi- 
nal. The United States can’t 
blame you people for your ac- 
tions. As for you, Adolf. I am 
sure you had no idea what was 
going on with your Storm 

“I certainly did. Some of the 
best ideas came from me." 

“Right. Now we have a 
bomber standing by to take you 
and Eva Braun to Argentina.” 

“What about amnesty?” 

“Of course you will have am- 
nesty. We plan to grant it to 

“What about all the furniture 
and artwork that l have ac- 
quired over the years?” 

“The Eighth Air Force will

find the right material for your 

Hoover could see that Hitler 
was getting interested. Adolf 
said, “I want a personal apolo- 
gy from Eisenhower for what he 
did to my troops on D-Day.” 

“That shouldn’t be a prob- 
lem,” Hoover assured him. 
“The important thing is we'd 
like you to resign in two months 
so we can turn Germany into a

around,” Hiller said. “When 1

“Everyone respects you. 
That’s why they sent me to ne-

to get a square deal and, al-

deserve a pardon. How much 
rent do you want for the bun-

Fortunately, before closing

and keeled over dead. Unlike

The Celebrity Game: 

By Neal Gabler 

N EW YORK — Walter Wmcheli. 

There was a time when that 
name would have hit the ear with the 
same crisp report as Garbo. Cagney. 
Bogart or Presley. It was a name that 
once would have instantly conjured 
the image of a bantam in a snap-brim 
gray fedora and summoned a voice, 
high and staccato, firing words like a 

Every American knew Winched. 
His syndicated gossip column and 
weekly radio broadcast reached an 
estimated 50 million readers and lis- 
teners out of an adult population of 
roughly 75 milli on. He starred in 
movies, inspired songs, stirred con- 
troversies. He was at the very apex of 

Today, less than 25 years after his 
death, Wincheil is one "of a legion of 
celebrities who were once household 
names and then faded into oblivion 
— people like the playboy Mci^ani 
brothers, the journalist Arthur Bris- 
bane, the movie stars Tommy 
Meighan and Tom Mix. even the 
cracker-barrel wit Will Rogers, who 
is remembered now more as the pro- 
tagonist of the Broadway musical 
“The Will Rogers Follies” than as 
one of America's top movie box-of- 
fice attractions and leading political 

Celebrities are hardly an endan- 
gered species; there are more of them 
these days than ever before. But the 
lives of most celebrities, like that of 
Wincheil, are parables of perishabil- 
ity. No matter how deeply one seems 
to have stuck in the national con- 
sciousness, tune can always unstick 
him. Today it is Wincheil who is a 
cultural footnote. Twenty years from 
now it may be Madonna, Tom 
Cruise. Rush Limbaugh or. quite 
possibly, aD three. 

What unsticks them is the ques- 
tion. The most obvious answer is that 
it is a matter of numbers. For de- 
cades, an ever-expanding pool of ce- 
lebrities has been competing for a 
finite public attention. 

So long as American culture re- 
mained regionalized and so long as 
high culture was the only American 
national culture, the pool was rela- 

tively small — mainly politicians, 
war heroes, ibe odd baseball player 
and entertainer. 

But demographic and social 
changes gave rise to a new sense of 
cultural democracy in the 1920s as 
ethnic, minority and urban .Ameri- 
cans began demanding a larger voice 
in shaping their world. Business hap- 
pily complied by proriding the in- 
struments for a popular culture: 
movies, national magazines, radio, 
tabloids. The rise of mass media im- 
mediately generated a class of na- 
tional celebrity — names and faces 
desperately needed to fiil the maws 
of the new- media and keep audiences 

Viewed in ruthless economic 
terms, these movie stars, athletes, art- 
ists. journalists and socialites were 
really human commodities, if not 
quite manufactured for the puipose 
of tantalizing us with their escapades, 
at least seized upon and exploited for 
that purpose. 

By the late '20s, dozens of these 
celebrities had appeared on the na- 
tional screen. But celebrities 
spawned by the mass media to sell 

papers, magazines and films were ob- 
viousiy different from those who had 
achieved fame before the advent of 
mass media. Some 30 years ago in his 
book “The Image,” the historian 
Daniel J. Boorstin defined the basic 
difference as that between weti- 
kn ownness for its own sake < modem 
celebrity) and fame as the product of 
greatness (old-fashioned heroism j. 

“The hero was distinguished by his 
achievement,'' wrote Boorstin, “the 
celebrity by his image or trademark.” 
Or. in Boors tin's now oft-quoted pro- 
nouncement, “The celebrity is a per- 
son who is known for his well- 

A striking case in point is Peggy 
Hopkins Joyce. In the '50s and '40s, 
Joyce was probably as widely known 
as any entertainer, politician or ath- 
lete, though she was none of these. 
She had enjoyed z brief career as a 
showgirl and an even briefer one in 
movies, but her real claim :o fame 
was as a bride. Running away from 
home with a vaudeville bicyclist at 
15. she was married at 16, then again 

A Few Parables of Perishability 


Quick now. who was Peggy Hopkins Joyce? 

a few years later to a Washington 
socialite, then to a Chicago lumber- 
man who granted her SI. 4 million in 
jewelry at their divorce, then to a 
Swedish nobleman, then to an Eng- 
lish engineer and finally to an Ameri- 
can banker. 

Marrying was about all she did, 
but it was" enough to make her a 
fixture m gossip'columns, tabloids 
and magazines, just as it would a 
generation for Zsa Zsa Gabor. 
In Boorstin > postulation, fame root- 
ed in achievement is enduring; to this 
d 2 >, we remember the great athletes 
of yesteryear. By the same token, one 
could have predicted that Joyce 
would be forgotten, no matter how- 
famous she was in her own time. 

because her fame wasn’t tethered to 
any recognizable accomplishment. 
Or rather it was tethered to a very 
different kind of accomplishment: 
being famous. 

Though Boorstin and others chalk 
modern celebrity up to media ma- 
nipulation that hoodwinks the pub- 
lic, Americans early on came to ap- 
preciate that a Joyce or a Gabor or 
later a Madonna had indeed 
achieved something in wresting fame 
from the system. To do so took pub- 
licity, wiles, luck, maybe even a cer- 
tain talent. Perhaps more important, 
the public also understood that if this 
wasn't quite comparable to winning 
a war, writing a novel or hitting a 
home run, the end results at least 

were all pretty much the same. It’s 
not what you ve done to make the 
cover of People; it’s just making the 
cover that counts. 

Here is where heroism and celebrity 
collapse into each other. In a society 
where fame is the end and where tfai 
means one uses to gam it are largely 
irrelevant, fame paradoxically func- 
tions as a kind of equalizer. U reduces 
all celebrities, those who have 
achieved something and those who 
have achieved absolutely nothing, to 
the same valence —a Will Rogers and 
a Peggy Hopkins Joyce, a Norman 
Schwarzkopf and a Kalo Kadin. 

This is how I suspect most people 
regard celebrities now. They see them 
as people who lake the national 
stage, do their act and leave, invited 
to return only when they have some- 
thing new to perform. This permits a 
lot of individuals to get a shot —ours 
is certainly the first generation m 
which hair stylists and diet gurus can 
be famous — but it virtually guaran- 
tees a short run. Once you've 
achieved fame, you've reached the 
summit. The rest is all downhill. 

Nowadays we almost always think 
of the famous in terms of images. In 
fact, we are encouraged to think of 
them that way because it is the im- 
ages of them that sell them; scenes 
from movies, photos in newspapers 
and magazmes, videotape on the eve. 
ning news. 

But images are disposable. New 
images are constantly shunting old 
ones aside, not only in the media but 
more important, in our minds. 

Naturally this puts a heavy premi- 
um on a fresh supply of celebrities to 
help keep us ahead of the curve. 

The bonus is that by seeming to 
anoint new celebrities and banish 
many of the old from the media spot- 
light. the public not only feels know- 
ing. it gets the exhilaration of seem- 
ing to exercise power over the 
culture. The public giveth and the 
public taketh. It is rite only way we 
can redress the imbalance between 
the famous and ourselves.

chelL : Gossip. Power and the Culaue of
