US battle 


on 






From Christopher Thomas, Washington 


• A virtual news blackout was maintained in 
Washington yesterday as US ships headed to w ithin 
striking range oLLibya. 

• It £5 thought that the US is planning to strike 
against Libya, bat that final details have yet to be 
finalised. 

Western embassies in the Arab world have been told 
that a US attack may. come tonight or before dawn 
tomorrow (page 5),

A United States battle group 
of two carriers, 19 cruisers, 
destroyers, mid frigates, plus 
nine support- .-vends, were 
heading east in the Mediterra- 
nean yesterday and will be 
within stfflang range of Libya 
today. The White House and 
the State Department main- 
tained a virtual news blackout 
yesterday, but some officials 
indicated that military action 
was not imminent 
The consensus -is that the 
US wiD'strifce against Libya, 
biit the precise details of how 
and when -have not .been 
finalised. Both Mr ' George 
Shultz, Secretary of State, and 
Mr Gispar Weinberger, the 
Defence Secretary, are but of 
the country.' and a decisive 
American moire in their ab- 
sence is entirely unlikely. 

Mr Shultz returns ‘from 
North Yemen later today and 
Mr Weinberger ends a visit to 
Pacific countries tomorrow. 
There is little doubt that on 
their return Mr Reagan will 
present them with a broad 
^an to strike Libyan missile

Moscow ends its ban 
on imelear testing 

Fran a Correspondent, Moscow 


* * * * * * 


The Kremlin announced 
yesterday that h was ending its 
unilateral ban on nuclear test 
explosions, having urged the 
United States for dght months 
to stop testing weapons in the 
Nevada desert : — 

In a brief statement, issued 
by the news agency Tass, it left 
the door was open for Wash- 
ington to discuss -a joint test 

Wan. 

“Since the United States 
conducted a hew nuclear test 
despite these .warnings, the 
USSR Government declares 
that from now. on. it is free 
from , its unilateral commit- 
ment to refrain from conduct- 
ing any nudear explosions. 

“At the same time, the 
Soviet Government again re- 
affirms its proposal to start 
talks immediately on a -full 
prohibition of nuclear weap- 
ons testing.'’ . 

The Soviet media pounced 


on Thursday's nuclear test in 
Nevada, denouncing the Rea- 
gan Administration for taking 
the world nearer to the “mide- 
ar precipice", while hailing 
Moscow's moratorium on 
testing as a political and moral 
victory. 

Western diplomats here 
said they feared that Moscow 
tod won the war of words oh 
the issue. 

But the diplomats pointed 
out that the Kremlin must 
have known, after Wash- 
ington's initial response to the 
moratorium, that the Ameri- 
cans were in no mood to stop 
testing. 

The While House has stated 
repeatedly that the reliability 
of its nuclear weaponry de- 
pends on continuing the test 
programme, and has accused 
Moscow of imposing its ban 
only after completing a series 
of blasts.

Tories 
keen for 
poll tests 

By Philip Webster 
Political Reporter 
The Government is pressing, 
ahead quickly with its next two 
by-election tests, buoyed by 
the failure of the Liberal- 
Social Democratic Alliance to 
make any headway in the 
Fulham contest 
As the Labour Party yester- 
day celebrated Mr Nick 
Raynsford's success in win- 
ning back the seat it held until 
1979, Conservative leaders 
and MPs in seals threatened 
by the Alliance were drawing 
ample consolation from its 
worst performance of the 
present Parliament. 

Writs for the two pending 
by-elections at West Derby- 
shire and Ryedale in York- 
shire are expected to be moved 
in the Commons early next 
week. They are expected to 
take place on May 8, the day 
of the local elections. 

In both seats the main 
challenge to the Conservatives 
will come from the Alliance, 
who finished second in each in 

1983. ) 

. Although the Conservative 
accept that the Alliance’s Ful- 
ham performance is unlikely 
to be typical of its standing in 
more promising territory, Tory 
strategists hive concluded 
that their best hope of bolding 
on to the seats is to move fast 
while Alliance morale is low, 
and to have the elections at a 
time when the resources of 
their opponents will be fully 
stretched. 

Conservative MPS were far 
from downcast yesterday with 
the Fulham result, its first test 
since the Westland troubles. 

Mr Raynsford, aged 41, who 
was received triumphantly by 
Mr Nefl Khmncfc at the Com- 
mons, overcame a Conserva- 
tive majority of 4,789 to win by 
3^503, one of only three gains 
from the Tories since 1971. 

The Prime Minister, on a 
visit to Devon, described the 
defeat as a “typical mid-term 
election”. She added^There is 
no loss of faith." 

She said that H was signifi- 
cant that the Alliance vote had 
collapsed completely. “You 
have to stand very firmly on 
particular principles and poli- 
cies. I have always thought 
that those were not very dear 
in the Affiance.” 

Mr Norman Tebbit, the 
Conservative Party chairman, 
echoed that view: “It is an 
interesting result because it 
seems to mark the decline of

Drug gang clue as 
Guinness ransom 
deadline passes 

From Richard Ford, Belfast 

A three-day deadline set by wife of Mr John Guinness, 


the kidnappers of Mrs Jenni- 
fer Guinness pased last night 
without the police or family 
receiving any contact from the 
gang holding her for an 1R£2 
million ransom. 

As the victim’s distraught 
family waited at their luxury 
home police in the republic 
were working on the theory 
that criminals rather than 
subversives were responsible 
for the abduction four days 
ago. 

One line of investigation 
was into the activities of a 
Dublin drugs dealer who two 
weeks ago was warned by the 
Provisional IRA to cease his 
activity. It is thought the man 
wished to carry out a money- 
raising operation to enable the 
gang he leads to leave the 
country. 

Although a nationwide 
search is being carried out for 
Mrs Guinness, aged 48, the 
police hum is being concen- 
trated in the Dublin area 
where detectives believe pie 
missing woman is being 
hidden. 

One of the fears of police is 
that if the abduction was 
carried out by criminals they 
could panic or do something 
foolish. Although the opera- 
tion to abduct Mrs Guinness 
from her home at Howth 
north of Dublin appeared well 
planned there were what po- 
lice believe were unprofes- 
sional aspects including the 
stealing of a small amount of 
loose cash and the ripping out 
of the telephone line. 

A team of 40 detectives 
headed by senior officers is 
leading the hunt for Mrs 
Guinness, who was dragged 
from her home by an armed 
and masked rang led by a man 
called “The Colonel". 

The mother of three is the 



m- 

Mrs Guinness, involved in 
squabble over ransom deal 


aged 51, who is chairman of 
the Guinness and Mahon 
merchant bank in Dublin and 
is distantly related to the 
wealthy Guinness Brewery dy- 
nasty. 

Supt Frank Hanlon conced- 
ed yesterday that the police 
had made no breakthrough. 
He appealed to the public to 
report any suspicious move- 
ments in their neighbourhood 
and urged them to keep a 
watch on empty buildings and 
report anything unusual, such 
as people buying extra 
amounts of groceries. 

Both the police and the Irish 
Government 

yesterdayreaffirmed their op- 
position to the payment of any 
ransom demands but the diffi- 
culty facing the authorities is 
that cash could be paid out- 
side the jurisdiction and ft is 
likely that they have already 
been in touch with Scotland 
Yard and the British Govern- 
ment in an attempt to thwart 
any attempt to pay the ransom 
in Britain. 

Last night a rift had devel- 
oped between the Guinness 
family and the police over the 
authority's policy of opposi- 
tion to negotiaringand paying 
ransom. 

The family are worried for 
the safety of Mrs Guinness but 
a representative from Control 
Risks, a company who have 
arrived in Dublin, was warned 
by the police not to become 
involved in any attempt to 
negotiate with the kidnappers. 

Last night a person purport- 
ing to be “The Colonel" 
telephoned a Dublin evening 
newspaper saying they had 
until Tuesday to raise the 
ransom. 

The caller added: "If not, 
Mr Guinness will not see his 
wife again”. 

But the caller gave no 
instructions about how or 
where payment should be 
made and the Gardi are 
baffled that the gang gave n0 
instructions when they left the 
house on Tuesday. 

The spate of kidnapping 
and abduction attempts 
against prominent business- 
men and wealthy VIPs in the 
republic has prompted many 
to instal elaborate security at 
their homes and those be- 
lieved most at risk now have 
discreet special branch 
protection. 


Coldest April on record 


By Hugh Clayton 
Environment Correspondent 
April followed February 
into the record books yester- 
day as lashing winds helped 
keep temperatures down to 
half the usual average for this 
time of year. This year has 
already produced the second 
coldest February of the centu- 
ry apart from that of 1 947. 

The first 10 days of April, a 
period for which average tem- 
peratures have been recorded 
since 1948, were yesterday 
declared to have been the 
coldest since then. 

Daffodils and other spring 
blooms were greeted in many 
gardens yesterday with light 
fells of snow. The London 


Weather Centre blamed winds 
from Scandinavia few the per- 
sistent cold. 

The average daytime tem- 
perature in central London 
this month has been 5.7*0 
(42T). The previous lowest 
average temperature recorded 
for the first 10 days of April 
was 7.6 a C (45”F) in 1978. 

The forecast for today is for 
rain and sleet followed by 
drier weather. 

The cold spell has natural- 
ists worried about the fate of 
some of Britain’s scarcer wild 
animals. 

A planned release of more 
than 40 rare lizards near the 
Royal Birkdale golf course on 
.Merseyside has already been . 


postponed. 

Researchers are also wor- 
ried about a decline in 
doormice populations. Dr Pat 
Morris, a zoology lecturer, was 
yesterday worried that the 
cold weather would make the 
animals prolong their winter 
hibernation and wake too late 
to produce foe first of their 
two annual litters. 

There has been much un- 
usually cold weather in recent 
years. In 1981 heavy snow fell 
in parts of southern England 
in foe last week of April. 
.Although foe winter of 1984 
was mild, last year's was 
exceptionally cold in much of 
Europe with snowfalls as far 
. south as Madrid. 


Equity bars stars from South Africa 


By CotmHngbes 

British stage and screen 
stars wBl face fifties, suspen- 
sion or threat of expulsion 
from Equity, their trade anion, 
if they perform in South 
Africa. 

The union's tough new anti- 
apartheid fine follows a refer- 
endum. Although only one in. 
tea of its 32,000 members 
returned ballot forms, the 
union's executive trim a 1,946 
tp 1,374 majority in favour of 
an instroctiontomung work In. 
South. Africa, and its depen- 
dent bomefands. . .. - 


The controversial resu lt, on 
at topic which has frequently 
split Qie union's membership, 
riD became immedi a te policy. 
Next week Equity's nding 
council will discuss action to 


disobey the ton. 

Mr Peter Pkwviez, the gen- 
eral secretary, said that he 
expected members would obey 
it. 

Suspension or expulsion 
from, the muon is a serious 
threat for actors because it is 
virtually impossible for them 
to work fo Britain unless they 
carry an Equity card. 


The decision may jeopardize 
the position of Mr Derek 
Bond, foe onion's president 
He has already faced calls to 
resign b eca u se he preferred a 
policy which obliged members 
to sigp a declaration saying 
they would not perform to 

racially-segregated audiences, 

a relaxation of Equity’s previ- 
ous policy. 

The vote, announced yester- 
day, was given an enthusiast 
welcome across a broad politi- 
cal spectrum in the union. 
Miss Glenda Jackson, a sup- 
porter of the. moderate union 
grouping Centre Forward, 


said: “I am absolutely delight- 
ed, and only sorry that we did 
not have this edict earlier. It is 
a decisive vote, and Equity 
members are usually good at 
implementing what their exec- 
utive decides." 

Mr Louis Mahoney, who 
chairs Performers Against 
Racism am > is the Afro- Asian 
member of the Equity council, 
said that it was a “wonderful 
success after ten years of 
campaigning to get an outright 
boycott" It would be wel- 
comed by all liberal opinion 
ami black groups in Sooth 
Africa.

Disabled 
Bill passed 
unchanged 

By Sheila Gunn 
Political Staff 

The Government unexpect- 
edly dropped its resistance to a 
Bill to improve the prospects of 
the disabled and mentally ill 
yesterday. 

A major confrontation tod 
been predicted tot the Disabled 
Persons (Services. Consultation 
and Representation) Bill is now 
likely io complete its passage 
through Parliament without 
any changes after foe retreat at 
the third reading and report 
stage. 

It was a sign of the 
Government's eagerness to 
pacify its own backbenchers 
after opposition to foe threat- 
ened Land R over sell-off and 
the Sunday trading Bill 

The Disabled Persons Bill, 
proposed by Mr Tom Clarke, 
Labour MP for Monklands 
West, is aimed at dealing with 
failings in community care 
which have led to mental 
patients being discharged from 
institutions with nowhere logo. 
U should mean proper assess- 
ments of the mental and physi- 
cal disabled and better 
communications between those 
concerned with their care. 

Mr Clarice said: This was a 
big dimbdown. Of the four 
major points we made, we have 
won three-and-a-tolf of them”. 

The principles won support 
from MPs of all parties. But the 
Government claimed the BiD 
would be bureaucratic and 
costly with ministers estimating 
that its provisions could cost 
£100 million. Mr Clarke had 
argued that they would eventu- 
ally lead to savings. 

Their change of mind was 
revealed to Mr Clarke by Mr 
John Wakeham. the Govern- 
ment Chief Whip, in a 9am 
visit immediately before the 
start of the debate. He made 
dear that there would be no

Former 
UN boss 
takes 
newline 

From Frank Johnson 
Vienna 

Dr Kurt Waldheim has given 
a new account of his movements 
for the years during which he is 
accused of having had direct 
knowledge of war crimes. 

Because be has been involved 
in an election campaign and 
because the allegations related 
to a period so long ago, he says 
he has only in the past few days 
bad a chance to acquire the 
necessary facts and to check the 
dates. He now realizes that, for 
example, “I was not even 
presetft in Salonika ” — Saloni- 
ka being the scene of a mass 
deportation of Jews in 1943 of 
which Dr Waldheim allegedly 
had knowledge. 

The outline of his new ver- 
sion was sketched by him 
dining the television debate 
with his Socialist opponent. Dr 
Kurt Steyrer, here on Thursday 
evening. He elaborated in an 
interview with The Times yes- 
terday during a campaign stop 
at Weidhofen, a small town 
about 60 miles from Vienna. 

Whether Dr Waldheim's 
changed account will make 
him more or less believable 
remains to be seen. It does not 
contradict anything he has 
previously said. But he is sure 
to be accused of discovering 
convenient details rather late. 

The former United Nations 
Secretary-General also said 
that he and his staff were 
preparing a dossier which, 
they claimed, would prove that 
the campaign against him was 
started by people dose to, or 
members of, the Austrian 
Socialist Party. 

The case against him starts 
with the now famous omission 
in bis 1977 memoirs of any 
reference to military service 
after December 1941, when he 
was wounded on the eastern 
front and invalided back to 
Vienna. “It was impossible to 
leave the country (Austria)," 
the book says. “I was allowed 
to continue studying for my 
doctorate in law which I 
received about two years 
later." 

The World Jewish Congress 
last month published the in- 
formation that Dr Waldheim, 
in reality, saw further military 
service in the Balkans for a 
long period after that date. 

The issue, however, is what 
kind of service It was. Profes- 
sor Robert Herzstein, a profes- 
sor of history at the University 
of Sooth Carolina, retained as 
a pud consultant by the World 
Jewish Congress to investigate 
Dr Waldheim, wrote last week 
that the Austrian presidential 
candidate was “an important 
intelligence officer in Gronp E, 
a German Army group of 
300,000 men based in and 
around Salonika, Greece. He 
was responsible for security in 
the southern Balkan region." 

Dr Waldheim said yester- 
day that be bad recently

Prison governors agree 
jails are in danger 
from cuts in finances 


By Peter Evans, Home Affairs Correspondent 


Prison governors yesterday 
said that some jails were being 
placed in danger by budget 
restraints imposed by the 
Government as prison offi- 
cers prepared for industrial 
aciion over the issue. 

Governors have been ad- 
vised by their union not to 
undertake duties normally 
carried out by prison offi- 
cers — if they take industrial 
action — unless it threatens 
life, prevents essential ser- 
vices, or offends against the 
law. 

Governors will not censor 
mail, conduct visits, take 
charge of work parties, serve 
extras to prisoners from the 
jail shop or similar tasks. 
Essential services include 
feeding, hygiene needs, proper 
medical care and the discharge 
of prisoners on the date due. 

Ballot results so far known 
indicate an overwhelming 
vote by officers in favour of 
industrial action, which could 
cause administrative chaos in 
jails. 


The governors' attitude now 
becomes crucial, but they will 
not take industrial action. 
Government contingency 
plans include the use of troops 
and camps. 

In their first public state- 
ment of their position, gover- 
nors said yesterday that their 
policy on" the issue at the 
centre of the dispute was 
broadly similar to that of the 
Prison Officers' Association. 

Some establishments were 
being placed in danger. Gener- 
ally there was pressure result- 
ing from under-staffing and 
under-funding to deal with 
more violent criminals and a 
greater prison population. 

Mr Sidney Powell, secretary 
of the prison governors' 
branch of the Society of Civil 
and Public Servants, yester- 
day disclosed that it had sent a 
letter to the Prime Minister at 
the beginning of the month, 
warning of frustration and 
anger frit by prison officers 
and other staff about financial 
constraints. 


The letter came after a 
motion at the governors' an- 
nual conference in January 
calling for government action 
to reduce pressure on jails. 

Mr Powell quoted Mr Leon 
Briuan, then Home Secretary, 
as talking to the 1983 Conser- 
vative Party conference about 
measures taken to deal with 
law and order and an in- 
creased number of violent 
criminals in custody with dim 
prospects of release. 

“We owe it to the brave 
men and women who staff our 
prisons to ensure that they are 
given the resources to tackle 
that challenge ” he said. 

Mr Powell said yesterday: 
“That statement is not com- 
patible with what has hap- 
pened since.” Last year 
financial constraints were 
placed on the service and 
increased this year. In 1984, 
Mr Briuan had forecast a 

S risen population of 47,000 
y the end of the decade. Last 
year it reached 48,000. 


Man in the news 


Slow climb to Westminster 


By Richard Evans. Lobby Reporter 


Mr Nick Ravnsford. 
Fulham’s new Labour MP. 
was greeted as a victorious 
hero by his party at Westmin- 
ster yesterday - in marked 
contrast to the reception he 
received 21 years ago when he 
first attempted to "enter” 
Parliament. 

Then a young university 
student, more interested in 
climbing than politics, he was 
in London for a friend's 
twenty-first birthday when, on 
a warm summer's night. West- 
minster first beckoned. 

“After I had far more beer 
than was good for me. I was 
persuaded" with others to as- 
cend the Houses of 
Parliament”, he recalls some- 
what sheepishly. 

“We drove down to Parlia- 
ment Square, parked the car. 
and four of us did the climb 
without ropes. It was extreme- 
ly foolish.” He was duly 
greeted on the roof by two 
waiting policemen. 

Wyvill Richard Nicolls 
Ravnsford was bom in 1944. 
His father had been killed 
months earlier in Normandy. 


and his mother died in a car 
crash 1 1 years later. 

Brought up by his grandpar- 
ents, he comes from what he 
calls a "conservative 
background". Educated at 
Repton before going on to 
Sidney Sussex. Cambridge, 
where be gained a degree in 
history, he displayed little 
early interest in politics, and 
while at Cambridge flirted 
briefly with the Conservative. 
Liberal, and Labour Clubs. 

After leaving Cambridge in 
1966. he worked in market 
research for two years before 
going to the Chelsea School of 
Art. 

He married in 1968. and his 
wife. Anne, rented a house in 
Fulham, west London. He 
soon became angered by plans 
to build a motorway through 
the constituency and cam- 
paigned successfully against iL 
It was also a period when 
property prices were rising, 
and tenants with inadequate 


in 1 970. and within a year was 
elected to the Hammersmith 
and Fulham Borough Council, 
and became chairman of the 
leisure and recreation com- 
mittee. 

In 1973. he started work for 
the London Housing Aid Cen- 
tre. first in its emergency 
department then as head of 
research, before becoming di- 
rector in 1976. 


However, because of the 
workload he decided to resign 
as a councillor in 1975. But 
while remaining an active 
Labour Party member he 
stayed on the political side- 
lines until 1981 when he 
sought the parliamentary 
nomination in Fulham. He 
lost by three votes. 


Last September, before the 
Fulham by-election was in the 
offing, he was persuaded by 
colleagues to try again. This 
time he won easily. 


legal protection were forced 

if I 


out of their homes by land- 
lords. 

He joined the Labour Party 


The rest of the story is 
history. Labour's new “Mr 
Nice Guy” has made it to 
Westminster — the legal way. 


Tories to move by-election writs 


Continued from pace 1 


the SDP/Liberal grouping. It 
looks as if they were squeezed 
out and people are perhaps 
returning to their traditional 
voting loyalties." 

There was no attempt by the 
Alliance to disgnise its dismay 
with the result. Dr David 
Owen, the SDP leader, 
said:“It is a disappointing 
result and there is no point in 
trying to pretend otherwise. 
\Ve only increased our vote by 
1 per cent and would have 
liked to have increased it by a 
great deal more than that. 

“Labour have done well, 
they had a good candidate and 
fought a good campaign. It is a 
bad result for the Conserva- 
tives hot also a bad result for 


ns. 


Mr David Steel, the Liberal 
leader, admitted that the result 
was disappointing but said 


that one isolated victory did 
not make a Labour 
government 

But Labour leaders were 
jubilant, seeing in the outcome 
public backing for Mr NeQ 
Kinnock's efforts to take on 
the Militant Tendency. Mr 
Roy Hattersely, Labour's dep- 
uty leader, said it was an 
historic victory for the Labour 
Party, demonstrating that the 
people had rejected Conserva- 
tive policies and recognized 
the SDP as an irrelevance. 

Mr Raynsford sailed down 
the Thames yesterday for a 
champagne welcome from Mr 
Kinnock at Westminster. He 
sa»d:“This is a tremendous 
resale for the Labour Party. 
We have overturned a substan- 
tial Conservative majority 
with a thumping victory and 
we have marginalized the 
SDP. The SDP are on the way 
out as a serious party in 


British politics.” 

Mr Kinnock said the suc- 
cess was a lift for the whole 
party m the run-np to the local 
elections. 


The Alliance had failed 
because they had nothing to 
say.“They could not even at- 
tract the Tories who wanted to 
vote against Mrs Thatcher.” 

But despite the attempts of 
the two main parties to write 
off the Alliance, few politi- 
cians doubt that it will form 
the main challenge to the 
Tories in West Derbyshire 
and Ryedale. It could win 
either seat on a swing of about 
14 per cent 

Mr John Spence, who re- 
cently died, held Ryedale with 
a majority of 16,142 in 1983. 
Mr Matthew Parris, MP for 
West Derbyshire, who is leav- 
ing politics for television, had 
a majority of 15 , 325 .

MoD might waive 
£ 60 m levy for US 


By Rodney Cowton, Defence Correspondent 


The Ministry of Defence is 
considering the possibility of 
offering to waive a £60 million 
levy on Hawk trainer aircraft 
to be supplied for the United 
States Navy in return for the 
US foregoing levies when 
preparing bids for alternatives 
to the troubled British Nim- 
rod airborne early warning 
project. 

The US Navy is expected to 
require 300 Hawk trainer 
aircraft, and it is intended they 
should be supplied by British 
Aerospace in a joint project 
with the American company 
McDonnell Douglas. 

Meanwhile, because of 
doubts about the ability of the 
British GEC company satis- 
factorily to complete the Nim- 
rod project, the Ministry of 
Defence is seeking bids from 
American companies with 
possible substitute systems for 
Nimrod. 

There are basically three 
American aircraft which could 
replace Nimrod. They are the 
Boeing AW ACS. now in ser- 
vice with Nato. the Lockheed 
P-3, and the US Navy's 
Grumman E2C Hawkeve. 

Where research and devel- 
opment work on an aircraft 
has been financed by a govern- 
ment. it is normal to add a 
surcharge to the price of 
overseas sales to recover a 
portion of this cost The MoD 
said yesterday that the idea of 


waiving these surcharges was 
one they might look at for the 
mutual benefit of both states, 
but it was premature to dis- 
cuss it because it would re- 
quire an administrative 
agreement and this had not 
been negotiated. 

• More than 2,000 shipyard 
workers who went on strike in 
an unsuccessful attempt to 
stop the launch of HMS 
Coventry voted yesterday to 
return to their jobs. 

The craftsmen at Swan 
Hunter Shipbuilders on the 
Tyne agreed overwhelmingly 
at a mass meeting to accept 
the advice of national union 
officers to resume normal 
working from Monday. 

This will enable talks to go 
ahead on Thursday between 
union officers and manage- 
ment* 

The men went on strike on 
Monday but their aim of 
preventing the launch of Cov- 
entry. the new £100 million 
Type 22 frigate, was foiled 
when management staged a 
dramatic launch early on 
Tuesday morning. 

After the meeting. Mr Den- 
nis Shadbolt, the company’s 
industrial relations and per- 
sonnel director, said manage- 
ment was looking forward to 
talks with the union over its 
final offer — to increase wages 
from £1 35 a week to £1 53 now 
and £160 next year.

Land Rover battle 


By Clifford Webb, Motoring Correspondent 


The Land Rover manage-' 
ment team which is seeking to 
buy the state-owned company 
yesterday won a powerful, if 
controversial, ally in the shape 
of Mr Michael Heseltine, the 
former Secretary of State for 
Defence. 

He told Conservative Party 
meetings in Birmingham and 
Derby: “The management- 
employee buy-out should be 
accepted.” 

He said the worst possible 
reason for delaying a manage- 
ment buy-out would be to 
keep the company as a 
“sweetener” for some later 
deal to sell Ley land Trucks. 

Mr Paul Channon. Secre- 
tary of State for Trade and 
Industry, was also in the 
Midlands yesterday visiting 
the factory in Rocester. North 
Staffordshire factory of J C 
Bamfocd. the rival bidders. / 


• He declined to comment on 
Mr HeseJ tine’s intervention 
and insisted that bis long 
standing arrangements to visit 
J C Bam ford would have 
“looked just as odd” if he had 
cancelled them. 

Mr Tiny Rowlands’ compa- 
ny, Lonrho, is the third 
bidder. 

Mr Heseltine said Land 
Rover should be allowed to 
“Maze new trails in the private 
sector like Jaguar”. Control of 
the company would be locaL 

“Policy decisions on com- 
ponents and suppliers wiU be 
determined in the Midlands 
not in boardrooms overseas.” 

Mr Heseltine denied that 
his criticism of US car manu- 
facturers was further evidence 
of his anti-American stand 
dining his' battle to flop 
Westland Helicopters falling 
into American hands. 


Big fall in union rolls 


The number of trade union 
members Iras fallen by more 
than two million since 1 979 to 
10.774,000, tiie annual report 
of the Certification Officer for

shows. 

The largest fall was in the 
Transport and Oeneral 
Workers’ Union — by 56.000 
to 1,491,000. However, the 


union did acquire one new 
recruit when the Queen Moth- 
er; accepted honorary mem- 
bership to go- with her 
honorary job of Simfofidd 
porter. - • 

Total assets for aH unions 
rose m 1984 to £531 million 
from £470 million the previ- 
ous year. Both figures exclud- 
ed the sequestrated funds of 
the MineworJoers.

Teachers 


are backed 


by bishops 


Roman Catholic bishops 
yesterday criticized the 
teachers’ pay and career struc- 
ture as being “inadequate for 
the desirable status of the 
profession". 

After a three-day conference 
they issued a statement saying 
that “further local authority or 
central government cuts in 
resources would run the risk of 
gravely damaging an already 
under-resourced enterprise”. 
The statement will be sent to 
Sir Keith Joseph. Secretary of 
State for Education and 
Science. 

The bishops of England and 
Wales, who met at 
Archbishop’s House, West- 
minster, said: “Negotiations 
so far have been virtually 
impossible because of the 
seeming inflexibility of both 
Government and unions.” 

The Bishop of Leeds, the 
Right Rev David Konstant. 
who beaded a committee 
looking at the education ques- 
tion. disclosed yesterday that 
he had a secret meeting recent- 
ly with Sir Keith. 

“The teachers have a very 
strong case, which has the 
bishops' backing.” he said. 
“The health of the nation 
demands a good education 
service. It is our belief that the 
status of teachers is inade- 
quately recognized in respect 
of salary and career 
structure.” 

The bishop said that they 
felt the statement was neces- 
sary. 


Younger’s troops promise to Ulster 


By Gavin Bell 


Mr George Younger, Secre- 
tary of State for Defence,bas 
promised to send more froops 
to Northern Ireland if re- 
quired to help the Royal 
Ulster Constabulary's battle 
against a terror campaign 
being waged against it by 
“loyalists” angered by the 
Anglo-Irish agreement 

Mr Younger, paying his first 
visit to the province yesterday 
since being appointed in Janu- 
ary, recalled that two extra 
battalions had been drafted in 
since the controversial accord 
was signed last November. 

The arrival of 1,200 men of 
The Kings Own Scottish Bor- 
derers and the Royal Green 
Jackets in January and March 
came after a series of Provi- 
sional IRA mortar attacks 
against the RUC. It brought 
the present army strength to 
16.750. 

Mr Younger began his visit 
with a briefing from Lieuten- 
am-General Robert Pasco, 
GOC Northern Ireland, before 
flying by helicopter to south 
Armagh to meet troops of the 
First Battalion, the Black 
Watch, supporting RUC units 
in the border area. 

“I can see that there is very 
great concern over the politi- 
cal issues at the moment 
among the loyalists, but there 
is also a remarkable display of 
loyalty and of professionalism 
by the RUC." 

The minister met members 
of border patrols and of a 
special airborne .reaction 
force, and toured observation 
posts by helicopter. He then 
went to a battalion of the 



Mr Younger talking to soldiers of the Blade Watch In 
Bessbrook, Co Armagh 


Ulster Defence Regiment 
where he was briefed on the 
work of bomb disposal units. 

There were signs yesterday 
that the level of violence may 
be dropping, with only two 
petrol bomb attacks repotted 
against the police during the 


preceding night 

s thrown at a mobile 


One was' 
support unit in Belfast and 
two were hurled through the 
living room window of the 
home of an RUC family in 
Lisburn, south of the city 
Mr Fred Gracey, a former 
RUC officer who was in the 
house with his 'rife. Isobel. 
said later: “I’m satisfied, not 
terrified. If they want it, in the 
plain words of an Irishman. 


the hell with ft, they can have 
it.” 

The couple's four sons are 
all members of the RUC 

More than 160 gun, petrol 
bomb, and stoning attacks 
have been repott e d, agai n st the 
RUC since March Land more 
than 30 police families have 
been forced to leave their 
homes. 

The Ulster Defence Associ- 
ation, the biggest Protestant 
paramilitary Or ganizati on, has 
refused to denounce the at- 
tacks. fait yesterday Mr John 
McMichael, .its political 
Spokesman, gave a clear indi- 
cation that there may be a lull, 
.for the moment. 

“Our belief is that the 


Anglo-Irish agreement must 
be opposed, and that there 
should be no limit to that 
opposition,” he said. . ; . 

“For about a week now, we 
have been strenuously trying 
to bring the situation under 
control But if the Govern- 
ment makes another mistake, 
like banning legal.parades, the 
people will hit out blindly. 

Concern about the nightly 
waves of shootings and bomb- 
ings has prompted the Police 
Federation, representing the 
province's 12,500 RUC- offi- 
cers, to uogp their police chief 
to reconsider his participation 
in conference meetings under 
the Anglo-Irish agreement 

A lteration istatement is- 
sued yesterday reiterated that 
Mr Alan Wright its chairman, 
had called for serious consid- 
eration of. die need . for' Sir 
John Hermon: the chief-con- 
stable; to attend “because of 
- misinterpretation giving rise 
to the unfortunate view many 
people, have of the _chief 
constable as. being politically 
directed.” 


The Northern Ireland Of- 
fice said Sir John and Mr 
Lawrence Wren. Commis- 
sioner of die Irish Garda 
Siochana. had attended three 
of the four full conference 
meetings held so far.

Telephone ‘hotline’ on 
had driving instructors 

By Clifford Webb, Motoring Correspondent 


Tbe Driving instructors* 
Association (DIA) has -opened 
a telephone “hotline” to col- 
lect evidence from learner- 
drivers which could lead to 
prosecutions of “cowboy” 
instructors. 

The move, announced yes- 
terday, comes after a large 
increase in foe number of 
complaints . against 
instructors. 

Mr Graham Fryer, foe 
DIA's chief executi ve, sa id a 
small minority of irresponsi- 
ble instructors was causing 
problems. There included ab- 


sconding with lesson fees, 
failing to turn up for appoint- 
ments and making improper 
advances to pupils. 

He said it was practically 
impossible to make the De- 
partment of Transport, foe 
licensing authority for driving 
instructors, take action against 
foe offenders. The “hotline” 
was tbe first positive step 
taken by the driving school ; 
industry to protect both the 
industry ' and the general 
public. 

The “hotline” number is 01- , 
660-3333.

He said there had been an 
“astonishing” rise in foe inci- 
dence of testicular cancer, 
with foe number of cases 
almost doubling between 1964 
and 1982. About one man in 
450 will contract the disease;. 

Tbe link with foe mother’s 
weight is one of a number of 
risk factors being investigated 
by Professor Pike and fellow 
scientists, who are testing 
hormone levels in blood sam-

‘Satanist’ 
admits to 
trickery 

. Deny Mainwaring Knight, 
a self-styled satanist, admitted 
at Maidstone Crown Court 
yesterday that he had studied 
salesmanship and had used 
“his powers of confidence 
trickery”. 

But be claimed that was 
only in his “criminal career” 
in foe past before he commit- 
ted himself to God to fine 
himself from satanism. 

Mr Knight yesterday, faced 
cross-examination from Mr 
Michael Corkery, QC. for the 
prosecution, on his third day 
in foe witness box in foe 
“satan conman” triaL 

Mr Knight, aged 46, ah 
unemployed painterand deco- 
rator tirom Dormansland, Sur- 
rey, denies 19 charges of 
obtaining more than . £200, 000 
by deception from committed 
Qiristians. He claims he need- 
ed the money to buy satanic 
regalia to free himself from thc 
control of the devil, but it is 
alleged he spent it on fast cars 
and women. 

Asked by Mr Corkery if he 
had used his “powers of 
confidence trickery to .get 
people to part with their 
money”, Mr. Knight replied: 
“Certainly in my criminal 
career”. 

Mr Knight said there had 
been one occasion when the 
Rev John Baker, rector of 
Newick. Sussex, who ted 
raised the £200,000 for him, 
had refused him money to buy 
an item with satanic 
connections. 

When Mr Knight was an- 
swering questions from Mr 
Michael West, QC, defence 
counsel Mr Baker was can- 


and nodding bis bead towards 
Mr Knight from the public 
gallery. 

The bearing continues oh

Air terminal security doubt 


By Michael Baily, Transport Editor 


Doubts were raised about 
anti-terrorist measures at 
Heathrow Airport's new ter- 
minal four m foe eve of its 
public opening yesterday. 

In a last-minute visit to the 
£200 million terminal, Mr Mi- 
chael Spicer, Under Secretory 
of State for Transport respon- 
sible for aviation, said there 
would be no automatic X-ray 
checks on passengers' heavy 
baggage, although this is 
fo ought to have teen a key to 
past airpoirt terrorist attacks. 

Mr Spicer said mobile X- 
ray equipment in the terminal 
tending would he used to deal 
with particular threats when 
they arose. Passengers and 
hand-baggage would be 


screened automatically on en- 
tering foe huge departure halL 

He said security at 
Heathrow generally was 
“superb”. While it was not 
passible to provide fall protec- 
tion, “every single device one 
can think of has tees em- 
ployed here to ensure that foe 
terminal is secure”. 

The terminal was due to 
open for traffic at 5.40am 
today with the arrival of a 
British Airways flight from 
Dakar in foe Middle East 
The airport's south runway 
was closed for more than seven 
hours last night as a 1,000- 
vehide convoy transferred air- 
craft, staff and equipment half 
a m ?b» from terminals one 
three. 


British Airways, which wiO 
use about 90 per cent of tbe 
terminal's capacity, will on- 
ploy 2,000 staff to service 80 
flights daily and about 6JS 
million passengers a year. 

The terminal was opened by 
(he Prince and Princess of 
Wales last week, and is 
Britain's biggest single airport 
development, and will raise 
passenger capacity at 
Heathrow from 30 million to 
38 million a year.

‘Moderate’ drinking can damage your health 


By Thomson Prentice 
Science Correspondent 
Regular drinkers are to be 
advised to halve their alcohol 
intake because recommended 
“safe limits” are being shown 
to be dangerously high. 

The' warning is aimed at 
drinkers previously consid- 
ered “moderate”, who cause 
most alcohol-related prob- 
lems. a British Medical Asso- 
ciation conference in Oxford 
was told yesterday. 


Those range from minor 
illnesses to wife-beating, child 
abuse, football hooliganism, 
industrial accidents and fetal 
road accidents. Professor Nor- 
man Kreitman said. 

. Office workers, factory staff, 
boardroom executives and 
lawyers are among those who 
drank less than foe established 
safe maximum of 56 units of 
alcohol a week, but who were 
still drinking too much. 


One unit represents a glass 
of wine, half a pint of beer or a 
single measure of spirits. 

A Royal College of Psychia- 
trists report to be published 
this summer will call for the 
limit to be reduced to between 
20 and 30 units. 

“The evidence suggests that 
foe old levels are too high for 
safety and prudence dictates 
bringing them down,” Profes- 
sor Kreitman, director of foe 


Medical Research Council 
unit for studies in psychiatry 
in Edinburgh, said 

“We ought to be persuading 
the whole population to bring 
their drinking levels down. 

“If we persuaded people 
that however much they drink 
they should half it there would 
be a dramatic effect on foe 
total damage to public well- 
being. A ‘drink less' campaign 
should be aimed at moderate 
drinkers

Whore there were sufficient 
r-. sources the Government 
would bring the provisions into 
CiVce: soon after Royal Assent. 

the House of Lords gave 
the Bill the same skill, 
m-. deration, salience and

Commons there was no reason 
why 5:Ji should not receive

C Earlier durin: the report stage 
o*' ;he L:li. it* sponsor. Mr 
Tltoi.:-* Clarke. said that the 
P?-.. i ju<i before and after a 
disain.d ereid left school was 
critical to his or her future and 
c er n.!o should be available 
a: this traumatic lime. 

He sueccssfa'Ji moved a new 
c'.iiise. which was accepted by 
the Government, to ensure that 
no; later than .tine months 
before the oresumed date on 
v.nich the disabled child was to 
cease full time education from 
a local auihaniy. mat authority 
snoutd inform the appropriate 
.-.‘Heer of the social services 
iscpar.nten;. 

That cPker should then 
make arrangements for an 


assessment of the needs of the 
disabled child for the provision 
of any statutory services for the 
child within a period of not 
more than six months. 

The proposal would also 
allow similar assessments to be 
made in Scotland. 

Mr Peter Thnmham (Bolton 
North East. O. supporting the 
new clause, asked the 
Government to pay panicuoar 
attention 10 the need to 
prov ide adequate back-up and 
alter care services. If families 
were 10 adopt or foster disabled 
children they needed to know 
this help was available. 

Mr Alfred Mortis. Opposition 
spokesman on the disabled, 
said they supported the new 
clause. There was a need for 
resolve in approaching the Bill, 
he said, to ensure it remained 
as strong and viable as 
possible. The proposed new 
clause was a modest step 
forwards. 

Mr Jack Ashley (Stoke-on- 
Trent South. Lab) said disabled 
children leaving school were 
going 10 be at a critical lime of 
Lhcir lives and assessment of 
their needs was vital. 

Mr Barney Hayhoe said he 
would accept the new clause on 
the basis, dearly, that further 
discussions would be needed. 
He hoped Mr Clarke and his 
advisers would join in the 
mlks. perhaps with local 
authorities. 10 consider the 
technicalities. 

The new clause was agreed 
to. 

"""prrT* — -.'•:%vxr 


discharge. The Government 
proposal on this matter was 
only a token gesture. His new 
clause would provide for an 
assessment of the needs of the 
discharged person for particular 
services. 

Mr Roy Galley (Halifax. C) 
said the Government should 
either accept Mr Clarke’s new 
clause, or a similar one which 
he was proposing for 
consideration in the same 
group, because it was vital for 
menially ill and menially 
handicapped people that 
community policies should 
work. 

Mr Lewis Carter-Jones (Eocles, 
Lab) said it would be refined 
cruelty if people who bad been 
treated in hospital for mental 
disorders were discharged 
without their needs being 
assessed in order to help make 
a success of returning them to 
the community. 

Mr Andrew Rowe (Mid Kent, 
Cl said many of the cost 
implications of assessment had 
tended to be exaggerated 
because of a lack of 
imagination in handling such 
matters. It seemed many 
mentally ill patients needed 
regular contact with a caring 
person — someone who did not 
necessarily have to be highly- 
skilled. 

Mr Patrick Thompson 
(Norwich North. C) said an 
excellent series of articles in 


The Times by Marjorie 
Wallace described the problems 
of families with children who 
had become mentally-ill. 

Mr Jack .Ashley said that of 
1S.OOO menially handicapped 
people leaving hospital, more 
than 10.000 had been there for 
more than l wo years. 

You cannot expect them (he 
said) to come out without 
being assessed and given 
resources. That is not, as Mr 
Carter-Jones said, refined 
cruelty, it is unrefined cruelty. 
Mrs Edwina Carrie (South 
Derbyshire.O said the BilL 
with wise amendment, would 
be of considerable assistance to 
disabled people. 

Mr Alfred Morris, supporting 
Mr Clarke's new clause, said 
ministers in successive 
governments had for years 
pressed for assessment of 
patients being considered for 
discharge. 

He had known many cases 
where people had had to be 
swiftly readmitted to hospital 
because there was no 
knowledge by the local 
authority of their discharge 
from hospital. This coukl be 



Clarke: Assessments 
for those in care 
OMr Clarke then moved a new 
clause to require hospitals to 
give an assessment before 
discharging people who had 
received in patient treatment 
for a mental disorder for at 
least six months. 

He said it was not sufficient 
to require hospitals to notify 
the social services about the 


costly as well as inhumane. 

Mr Hayhoe said he would 
certainly not oppose adoption 
of Mr Clarke's new clause. It 
Mowed the basic structure of 
a Government new danse 
which he would, in the 
circumstances, not be moving. 

The clause in the Bill as it 
stood would introduce 
procedures which were 
unneccesarily prescriptive and 
cause problems in practice. Mr 
Clarke's clause would certainly 
avoid some of the 

objectionable features of that in 
the Bill. In particular the 28 
day minimum period for 
notification disappeared, as did 
the formula for adding up 
periods for short-term care in 
hospital. 

Mr Clarice's new clause was 

agreed to. 

•The Government had 
accepted the .strength of view 
expressed during the 
consultation exercise in favour 
of extending the right of 
representation of the disabled 
to health authorities as well as 
local authorities, but there were 
practical difficulties to 
overcome, Mr Hayhoe said in 
moving a new Government 
clause. 

The new clause, he said, 
would allow local authorities to 
permit the authorised 
representative of a disabled 
person, if requested, to act in 
connexion with the provision 
by the authority of any wdare 
service. 

Further, it would allow the 
authorised representative 10 
accompany the disabled person 
to a meeting or interview held 
by on on behalf of the 
authority in connexion with the 
provision of social services. It 
would also ensure that all 
necessary information and 
documents were made 
available to the representative. 

The permission applied only 
when requested by the disabled 
person and a local authority 
could bar a representative from 
any involvement in a particular 
case if it would be harmful to 
the interests of the disabled 
person. 

Mr Ashley said it would be 
wrong LO exclude 
representation in the case of 
health services. 

The new clause was agreed to 
and the report stage concluded. 
•The Drainage Rates (Disabled 
Persons) Bill, which restores to 
disabled persons relief from

£65m gateway to Barbican planned 


Plans were unveiled yesterday 
to demolish Lee House, a 1960s 
office block at London Wall in the 
City, and replace it, at a cost of 
£65 million, with two new build- 
ings, one of which would span the 
neighbouring dual carriageway 
(Charles Knevitt writes). 

Mr Terry Farrell, the architect 
who has recently presented 
schemes for improving the South 
Bank arts complex and develop- 
ing the area around Charing Cross 
Station, has designed the develop- 
ment for MEPC, the property 
company. It will be known as 
Alban Gate. 

A planning application will be 
submitted soon and negotiations 
will be held with the Corporation 
of the City of London for the “air 
rights” over the road. 


Lee House, buQt in 1964, 
contains 184,000 sq ft of offices. 
The new linked scheme will 
contain 335,000 sq ft of offices, as 
well as shops, restaurants, hous- 
ing a new livery hall, and a 
Barbican tourist and information 
office. 

Mr Christopher Benson, vice- 
chairman and managing director 
of MEPC, described Lee House as 
“an ugly and empty building 
which has • outlived its 
usefulness”. It is thought to be the 
first post-war office block in 
London to be totally demolished. 

Alban Gate, at 17 storeys, will 
be about the same height as the 
existing glass-walled “slab” blocks 
near by, and is likely to be clad in 
decorative polished granite

Mixed fortunes for two Old Masters 


By Geraldine Norman 

Sale Room Correspondent 

Lord Coke and the trustees 
of foe Holkham estate did not 
emerge from yesterday’s Old 
Master sale at Christie's as 
rich as they had hoped. 

Two great Italian paintings 
collected by his connoisseur 
ancestor, the first Lord Leices- 
ter, in foe early eighteenth 
century, had been sent for sale. 
The grander of foe two was 
Matria Preti's “Adoration of 
the Magi” Christie’s had ex- 
pected a price of about 
£500,000, but it was bought in 
at £380,000. 

The painting was surface 
cleaned before it was sent to 


an exhibition in Washington 
in 1983 and this had shown 
some damage. If it had been in 
what is known as “English 
country house condition” - 
covered with a dirty yellow 
varnish - it would probably 
have found a buyer - more 
easily. 


Tbe second Holkham pic- 
ture was a very rare sixteenth- 
century Mannerist work, “The 
Madonna and Child with 
Saints Helen and Francis” by 
Amico Aspertuu, which sold 
for £345,600. Christie’s had 
been talking of £300,000. Ital- 
ian Mannerism, with its elabo- 
rate distortions made for 
decorative effect, is very much 


in vogue and this was a fine 
example.

The answer, according to 
Australian and New Zealand 
scientists, is foe “Sea Daisy”, 
a bizarre form of marine life 
which has been discovered 
living in waterlogged wood 
deep under the ocean. 


It is classed by foe scientists 
as an echinoderm, one of the 
family which includes starfish, 
sea eggs, brittle stars and sea 
cue umbers. Until now it had 
been assumed that all classes 
of echinoderm had been 
discovered. 


Dr Baker gave a preview of 
foe find, to New Zealand 
scientists at a joint meeting in 
Wellington of the Royal Soci- 
ety and the Victoria University 
zoology department. 

Round and wafer-like, mea- 
suring between two 
millimetres and nine 
millimetres across, sea daisies 
are nn usual because of their, 
circular shape. Their, scientific 
name, which will not be used 
until printed in Noam, dwells 
on tbeir romtdness.

Democrats vent 
anger at latest 
Nevada test blast 

From Mohsin Alt, Washington 


I'-.- ‘ v * •**•'*- 




. *V 


Leading congressional 
Democrats in the United 
States have angrily criticized 
Thursday's underground nu- 
clear explosion in the Nevada 
desert. 

Senator Edward Kennedy 
said the Administration was 
squandering one of the best 
opportunities in years to 
achieve a comprehensive test 
ban treaty. 

Representative Edward 
Markey said: “This may be 
one small bomb in the desert 
but it's a big bomb for arms 
control.” 

Greenpeace, the interna- 
tional anti-nuclear organiza- 
tion. declared: “The rever- 
berations from this blast will 
be fell around the world for 
many years to come.” This act 
showed the true hypocrisy of 
President Reagan's stand on 
arms control. 

The House of Representa- 
tives Rules Committee agreed 
late on Thursday to permit a 
full vote on legislation that 
would ban further US nuclear 
weapons testing until the Pres- 
ident certified to Congress 
that the Soviet Union had 
resumed such testing. 


Meanwhile, Moscow's an- 
nouncement that it is ending 
its eight-month moratorium 
on nuclear tests came as no 
surprise to Administration . 
officials. 

The Soviet Union has made 
dear in recent days that it 
would be free to resume its 
own testing programme once 
the US carried out another 
underground nuclear blast. 

The Reagan Administration 
has said it will continue its 
programme because it is es- 
sential to test the reliability of 
modern nuclear weaponry. 

President Reagan has insist- 
ed that there must be adequate 
verification for any compre- 
hensive test ban treaty with | 
the Soviet Union. 

He has invited Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov to send experts to 
the Nevada test site to observe 
new American detection sys- 
tems. but the Soviet leader has 
turned the offer down. 

The 1963 partial nuclear 
test ban treaty prohibits tests 
in the atmosphere, outer space 
and under water, where there 
is danger of radioactive 
polution. But it does not ban 
underground blasts.

Uefa scorn 
at Heysel 
cup final 
security 

Zurich (Reuter) — The Eu- 
ropean Football Union (Uefa) 
has attacked Belgian security 
forces for being partly to 
blame for the tragedy before 
the European Cup Final at the 
Heysel stadium in Brussels 
which claimed 39 lives. 

A report, to be presented by 
the Uefa general secretary, 
Herr Hans Bangerter, to a 
Uefa congress in Portugal, 
says: “The English vandals 
would never have been able to 
perform such terrible deeds 
and create such misery if they 
had not been helped by the 
frightful incompetence of the 
Belgian security forces." 

English clubs were banned 
indefinitely from Uefa match- 
es after the violence at the 
final between Liverpool and 
Juventus last May. 

Feeling the 
pinch ... 

Hong Kong (Reuter) — 
Cheung Yun-fuk. aged 33, 
blamed his uncontrollable 
right thumb for repealed inde- 
cent assaults on women. It was 
not his fault that it pinched a 
woman's bottom as he helped 
her out of 3 taxi on Si 
Valentine's Day. 

The magistrate was not 
impressed. He jailed Cheung 
for nine months after hearing 
that he pinched the same 
woman in the same place a 
month later and had six 
previous convictions for the 
same offence. 

Space ‘victim’ 

Washington (AP) — A fish-

of metal fell from the sky, 
killed his 24-year-old son and 
sank their boat 37 minutes 
after the space shuttle Chal- 
lenger exploded in January. 
The 52-year-old Brazilian is 
asking Nasa for $21 million 
(about £14.5 million) in dam- 
ages. The space agency denies 
the claim.

In il, Mr Weinbwger warns 
the President of the advan-

has gained from breaching 
existing international agree-

He says r*In our current 
negotiations with the Soviets, 
we have worked to devise 


policy of treaty violation

various ways. It would signal 
the kind of uncertain^ and 
political weakness that invites 
adversaries to put one further

taken as recantation of our

undermining our credibility.”

Lebanese kidnappers seize Irish 
teacher after Frenchman escapes 


from Our Own Correspondent Beirut 


Lebanese' kidnappers lost 
one of their captives but 
probably, gained another 
yesterday. 

. Only hours after M Michel 
Brian was freed during a 
dramatic gnn battle in the 
Bekaa Valley; the American 
University in Beirut repotted 
the disappearance off Mr Brian 
Keenan. 

Mr Keenan, bom in Belfast 
and aged 35, is a lecturer in 
English at the college. 

As an Irishman — Northern 
Ireland citizens are entitled to 
hold Republic of Ireland pass- 
. ports — he is unlikely to be of 
much use to the kidnappers. 
There are no Arabs impris- 
oned in Ireland whose release 
could be demanded in return 
for his, and the: fast tone an 
Irish . citizen — Mr Aidan 
Walsh, -an official of the 
United Nations Relief and 
Works Agency-: was abduct- 
ed in Beirut, he was fregd 
when his captors discovered 
. his nationality. ' 

M Brian, the French school 
teacher abducted in West 
Beirut on Tuesday, owes. his 
escape to freedom in theearfy 


hours of yesterday to a group 
of rabbit hunters from the 
local Dendash family in the 
Bekaa Valley. 

Safely in the hands ofSyrian 
Army officers after his three- 
day ordeal, M Brian described 
how the- hunters saw him 



Mr Keenan: Left for work 
but failed to show up. 

sitting in a parked car,. Wind- 
folded and with his bands tied 
behind his back. 

The kidnappers began 
shooting at the hunters but the 


Reagan’s Belize envoy 
rejected in Senate 


..Washington — The Senate 
foreign relations committee, 
in a rare move^. has rejected 
President- Reagan’s, nomina- 
tion of Mr Janies Malone as 
ambassador to Belize (Mohsin 
AR writes). ' 

Democratic senators aDeged 
that Mr Malone had falsely 
testified to the committee in 
tbepasL 

The committee defeated Mr 
Malone’s nomination by nine 
votes to . seven, land then 
narrowly rgected .a ' moye by 


Senator Jesse Helms, a North 
Carolina conservative Repub- 
lican, to give Mr Malone a 
second chance by forcing a 
debate in the foil Senate. 

Observers said it was the 
first lime this century that the 
powerful foreign relations 
committee had rejected a pres- 
idential. nomination for. 
ambassador. 

Mr Malone was Assistant 
.Secretary of State for oceans 
and international environ- 
mental and scientific affairs 
during 1981-85. 


Dendashis, who had, rather 
unconventionally, taken Sovi- 
et-made automatic weapons 
on their hunting mission, fired 
back and so frightened the 
gunmen that they pushed M 
Brian from their vehicle and 
drove away. 

If bis release had about it an 
dement of farce, there was, 
however, nothing humorous 
about his account of the 
kidnapping. “From the time I 
was kidnapped, I did not see 
any faces,” he said. 

“ I was walking near a 
florist shop on Makdissi Street 
off Hamra. A gunman with a 
thick black beard came up to 
me and said in English: 'Don’t 
talk. Don’t scream.' Then be 
pushed me into the trunk of a 
Renault car. We drove for 
about 1 V 2 hours then we 
- stopped. They pot me in the 
trunk of another car, a bigger 
car, and we drove for about an 
hour.” 

M Brian was delighted to 
meet his rescuers. When told 
they were on a rabbit hunting 
expedition in the early hours, 
be said he replied: “Well, 
you’ve got some rabbit”. 

Tight suits

Zia told violence is not the only option 


Bhutto stands firm on 
peaceful transition 
to power in Pakistan 


From Michael Hamlyn, Lahore 


Miss Benazir Bhutto, glow- 
ing after the emotional em- 
brace of the hundreds of 
lhousands of supporters after 
her return to Pakistan, yester- 
day gave notice to President 
Zia's Government that it 
could be replaced without 
resort to violence. 

"Yesterday we could have 
brought " down this, 
govern menu" she said. “Yes-' 
icniay. if it was our intention 
to have violence, if it was our 
intention to have had a 
change-over with bloodshed, 
if it was our intention to have 
a change-over with the burn- 
ing of property and with the 
loss of lives, we could have 
done that. 

“We could have taken pow- 
er yesterdav in Pakistan, but 
the price would have been too 
high.** 

Addressing a chaotic and 
crowded press conference — 
which both the foreign and 
local press threatened to boy- 
cott because of the conditions 
under which it was held — 
Miss Bhutto made it clear that 
her emphasis on the peaceful 
translation of herself to power 
was not the unanimous view 
of her friends. 


“There are many friends 
who tell me.” she said, “that 
Mr Junejo (the Prime Minis- 
ter) is a facade for martial law. 
and that my strategy is 
wrong." But she insisted, she 
was taking him at his word 
and seeking a political con- 
frontation with him. 

She said she was also pre- 
pared to cooperate with Mr 
Junejo's Government on elec- 
tions. “because there is a 
civilian administration there 
at the moment”. 

Miss Bhutto added:“Tbat 
civilian administration can be 
used in the national interest as 
a stepping stone for the resto- 
ration of full democracy in the 
country." 

She urged that the Govern- 
ment. if it was truly democrat- 
ic. bow to the will of the 
people and hold immediate 
elections. But she indicated 
that it would not be possible to 
cooperate with President Zia. 

“If he goes gracefully, that 
would be the best thing.” she 
said, indicating that it was not 
possible to guarantee that she 
would not take revenge 
against him for the execution 
of her father. 


“I cannot tell you in black 
and white the answers you 
seek from me.” she told a 
questioner, adding that much 
depended on the peaceful and 
graceful transition of power. 

Speaking about her policies 
should the Pakistan People's 
Party — of which she is the 
acting chairman and undoubt- 
ed leader — come to power, 
she made evident a strongly 
populist strain in her domestic 
plans, promising land to the 
landless, employment to the 
sons of subsistence farmers, 
and relief from water tax for 
the formers themselves, as 
well as a minimum wage of 
1. 000 rupees (about £5u) a 
month. 

She accused Mr Junejo — 
who, on the eve of her arrival, 
prom ised free housing for 
squatters and land for 
housebuilding for the urban 
poor — of offering too little 
and too late. 

On foreign policy, she of- 
fered friendship with all coun- 
tries, but reserved the right to 
speak out against human 
rights violations because Paki- 
stan had suffered from human 
rights abuse. 



Wine makers from Italy's Lazio region hold a public tasting in a ted to offset the effects of the wine contamination scandal 


US embargoes untested Italian wine 


From Moshin AH 
Washington 

The US Is to stop importing 
I talian wine that has not been 
tested and certified as being 
Tree of methanol contamina- 
tion which has caused at least 
18 deaths in Italy. 

The embargo has been de- 
signed mainly to stop any 
I talian wine shipped before 
Italy baited exports after the 
deaths and began testing the 
prodace for methanol. 

The Treasury Department's 
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco 
and Firearms said the action 
was a precautionary one and 
that no methanol had been 


frond in Italian wine in the 
US. Italy ships an average of 
73 million gallons of wine to 
the US annually. 

Methanol, or wood alcohol, 
has been added by some 
prodBcera to strengthen die 
akhotk content of their wines. 
• ROME: Tests have shown 
that more than 300 labels of 
Italian wine contained traces 
of potentially deadly metha- 
nol, the Health Ministry said 
yesterday (AP reports). 

Ia a statement, the ministry 
said tests had beat conducted 
on wine made or bottled by 
20,466 different producers and 
300 of them contained more 


titan the legal dose of metha- 
noL It did not name the 300. 

A previous danger list is- 
sued by the Agriculture Minis- 
try named only 60 wines, most 
of them prod need in northern 
Italy. 

The annoflneement came a 
day after the Cabinet approved 
a series of toogh new measures 
to protect consumers from 
being poisoned. 

The measures provide for 
the temporary, or permanent 
revocation — a minimum of 
five years — of prod action and 
selling licences, as well as the 
confiscation of profits and the 
seizure of equipment 


The gover nm ent will in- 
crease the num ber of agents in 
its Anti-Adulteration Squad 
from 367 to 800, before the end 
of the year. Loral officials will 
be given more authority to take 
action against suspected of- 
fenders and will be able to 
dose down production before 
criminal proceedings are 
completed. 

In addition, 30 bilfion fire 
(about £1 33 million) wiB be 
sprat on modernizing and 
expanding laboratory 
facilities. Rome has also 
a^eed to compensate all for- 
eign buyers and consumers of 
tainted wine.

m^istrate's court on Wednes- 
.day, it was bdatedly con- 
firmed yesterday by SADF 
headquarters in Pretoria. The 
proceedings were conducted 
in camera, and the. accused 
were' remanded until April 23. 

Only a day after the bearing 
two grenade attacks occurred 
in Mankweflg, also in Lebowa, 
in which a leading local anti- 
apartheid activist. Mire Joyce 
Mabudafosi, and Mr Ernest 
Mokaba, who- - lived' in a 
wooden hut not for away, were 
seriously injured. . 

Mrs Mabudafosi is foe sec- 
retary of the Northern Trans- 
vaal branch of foe United 
Democratic Front (UDF), 
which shares the political aims 
of the outlawed African Na- 
tional Congress (ANQ, and is 
also an executive member of

Committee. Mr Mokaba is the 
brother of Mr Peter Mokaba, a 
regional executive member of 
the UDF and a former deni- 
zen of Robben Island, the 
Alcatraz-style jail in Table 
Bay. 

The latest events in Lebowa 
have reinforced foe suspicions 
of many local residents , that 
members of the Lebowa po- 
lice, aided by SADF members, 
are operating covert “death 
squads” which are alleged to 
have been behind grenade

Russians are expected

Washington (Reuter) -The 
Soviet Union is expected to 
cut its grain imports by almost 
half this year. One reason may 
be foe sharp drop in world ou 
prices, which has reduced the 
amount of foreign exchange 
available for imports, the US 
Agriculture Department said. 

In a report on foe Soviet 
grain crop, the US agency 
estimated that the Soviet 
Union will buy only 31 mil- 
lion metric tonnes of grain 
from ap sources this year, 
from 55 - 5 million in 
1985, and the lowest figure 
since 1979.

Long-snnmering tribal con- 
flict within the rating Zsnu 
(PF) party boiled over this 
week in Zimbabwe's House of 
Assembly as a likely successor 
to Mr 'Robert Mugabe as 
Prime Minister fought for his 
political fife. 

Dr Herbert Ushewokunze, 
the Transport Minister and 
foe party's national political 
commissar, became its fus 
member to. expose foe divi- 
sion publicly, in a defence 
ag eing allegations of misman- 
agement and links" with 
corruption. 

Hie House was incredulous 
when foe highly articulate Dr 

Usbewokunze brought up the 

issue of tribalism, under Mr 
Mugabe it has become a 
subject to be avoided at all 
costs 

The conflict between the 
Zezuru-speakmg group from 
foe north-east and foe power- 
ful Karanga-speakers of foe 
south is seen as foe most 
serious threat to foe party's 
strength and unity since be- 
fore independence in 1980. 

It was expected to continue 
with increased bitterness out 
of foe public eye at a meeting 
of foe party's 90-member Cen- 
tral Committee at Mr 
Mugabe's official residence. 

Dr Usbevrokunze was ac- 
cused in a report tabled last 
week by Parliament's Public 
Accounts Committee of run- 
ning his Mini ary. lire national 
railways,- and Air Zimbabwe 
as he pleased. He was blamed 
for putting relatives and 
friends in jobs, instituting 
anti-white campaigns and giv- 
ing a less- than -satisfactory ac- 
count of his links with the 
fraudulent sale of railway 
property

Wednesday and Thursday in- 
duded attacks of unprecedent- 
ed venom on accounts, com-

Thirteen Chinese theatre 

groeps will perform during the 
two-week festival which 
opened on Thursday. 

The Chinese love Shake- 
speare, the daily quoted the 
chairman of the Shakespeare 
Society of China, Mr Cao Ye, 
as saying. Shakespearean the- 
atre was banned during the 
Cultmal Revolution (1966-

The British Ambassador. 
Sir Richard Evans, attended 
the Peking opening ceremony. 

When a production of The 
Merry Wires of Windsor be- 
gan in Peking last month 
ahead of the main festival, a 
Chinese narrator was given 
the job of explaining back- 
ground information to the 
audience. 

But the China Daily said 
this was stopped after many 
playgoers objected, some even 
shouting out; “Please don’t 
interrupt. We nnderstand 
Shakespeare”. The play’s di-

Accused Marcos 
man on the run 

From Keith Dalton, Manila 


Mr Orlando Dulay, a for- 
mer parliamentarian and fol- 
lower of the deposed President 
Marcos, escaped from military 
detention yesterday, a day 
after the Justice Ministry filed 
multiple murder and kidnap- 
ping charges against him. 

Mr Dufay, a former military 
officer, was the only official of 
the ousted regime to have 
been jailed since President 
Aquino swept to power on 
February 25 after a civilian- 
backed military revolt. 

The Defence Minister, Mr 
Juan Ponce Emile, ordered a 
nationwide military manhunt 
for Mr Dufay and four alleged 
followers implicated in the 
killing of three Aquino cam- 
paign workers who disap- 
peared in Quirino province on 
the eve of the hotly-disputed 
presidential election. Their 
mutilated bodies were found 
two days later in the 
neighbouring province of 
Nueva Viscaya. 

Three men — Mr Fernando 


Pastor, Ips son, also named 
Fernando, and Mr Francisco 
Lauretta — were tortured. 
bound and kepi under guard 
in Mr Dufay’s garage shortly 
after they were reported miss- 
ing. one of the assemblyman’s 
bodyguards said in a sworn 
statement to the Justice 
Ministry. 

Mr Dufay, who has denied 
any involvement in the kill- 
ing, was on Thursday charged 
with three counts of murder 
and kidnapping. His coac- 
cused remain at large. 

After be surrendered to 
military authorities on March 
12. Mr Dulay bad special 
accommodation at Camp 
Crame. the suburban head- 
quarters of the Philippine 
Constabulary, where he occu- 
pied two adjoining rooms. 

Agents of the Commission 
on Good Government have 
meanwhile confiscated IS fur 
coats belonging to Mrs Imelda 
Marcos and worth S37S,000 
(£250,000). 


Aquino ‘manipulated’ 


King Lear daring its 
Cultural Revolution. 


Manila (Renter) — Unido, 
the party of Vice-President 
Salvador Laurel of the Philip- 
pines, yesterday said Presi- 
dent Aquino was being 
manipulated by a clique of 
mysterious advisers. 

“The President is not being 
given the true situation- 1 wish 
sbe would expand her consul- 
tation process down to the 
grass roots,” Mr Rene E spina. 


the party’s secretary-general, 
told journalists. 

He said more than 50 pro- 
Aquino MPs were disappoint- 
ed that she had abolished 
Pa rliam ent after pledging to

Mr Laurel who backed last 
month’s abolition of the Na- 
tional Assembly, was not at 
Mr Espina’s press conference. 


What does it mean 
to be an Officer in the 
Territori 


Rjr a start, it means the Territorial Army 
actually has its own Officers. 

And, because were expanding, 
looking for more. You may not have realised 
this. So read on. 

It means going to Sandhurst. 

Surprised? You shouldn’t be. 

A Territorial Army Officers duties 
and responsibilities are no less 
demanding than those of his 
Regular Army colleagues. 

Potential Territonal Army 
Officers are singled out for their 
leadership qualities. 

And, during a continual 
training and assessment programme 
(which includes two weeks at the 
Royal Military Academy Sandhurst) 
these leadership qualities are devel- 
oped to the full. 

It means 
stepvriththe 

As soon as they join us, potential 
Territorial Army Officers begin to learn 
how to exploit their natural talents through 
a wide range of activities. 

From combat tactics, weaponry and map 
reading, to drill, command and fieldcraft. 

And they'll go on learning during the rest 
of their career as a Territorial Army Officer, 
because in the event of war, they’ll be expected 
to fight alongside the R^ulars. 

It means keeping your brain 
as agile asyourbody 

Naturally we expect our Officers to be 
physically fit. Fitness is an essential facet of 
command, and it’s something 
we work at. 


But leadership requires mental agility 
too. A Territorial Army Officer can find 
himself leading men from all walks of life. 
He needs to exercise understanding 
and initiative in equal quantities, in order to 
get the best out of people under his command. 

It means commitment. 

Obviously, a Territorial Army 
Officer has to give up some of his 
spare time. 

At least eight weekends a year 
plus a two week camp and some 
weekday evenings is the basic 
requirement, though most of our 
Officers find that the more they 
put into the Territorial Army, the 
more they get out of it. 

It means alotto 
Britain. 

The Territorial Army is a 
vital and active part of our 
defences. 

Currently, we make up one 
third of Britain’s land forces. 
And, J^Lwere still expanding.That's why 
we want to Ik hear from you.

SPORTS 

DIARY 

Simon Barnes 

Last stump 
is nigh 

Some extravagant things have 
been written about Ian Botham 
over the years, but the Salvation 
Army paper The H’ar Or (the one 
you buy half an hour before the 
pubs dose) has gone further than 
any. “Botham will always be an 
enigma." it says. “One day bril- 
liant. the next merely human. As 
for Jesus, his rejection came as no 
surprise. He had warned his 
followers what to expect. So .not 
much has changed in 2,000 
years . . . will you have made up 
your mind about Jesus by the time 
Botham has scored his next 
century?" More to the point is the 
quote from Lindy Field, the 
Former Miss Barbados who made 
the sex *n* drugs allegations 
against Ian Botham (for a reputed 
£40.000): "1 feel sorry for Ian and 
his family . . . Ian is a wonderful 
person, but he really needs to get 
his act together." 

Seriously . . . 

With the passing of Botham's 
agent Tim Hudson — he of the 
sweeping assertion (which he de- 
nies making) "doesn't everybody 
smoke pot?" — comes relieved 
laughter from the cricket est- 
ablishment. which feels that it can 
now safely say that the man was 
only a down after all. But Hudson 
put' his linger on two truths: that 
top crickets have a greater 
commercial potential than ever 
before, and that top international 
players now get fed up with county 
cricket seven days a week. The 
break-away arcus he talked about 
would certainly have found illus- 
trious supporters had Hudson 
taken it beyond Lhe talking stage. . 

Stroll on 

What is Britain's most popular 
sport? If you are not going to be 
too pedantic about the compet- 
itive side it is walking in the 
country. The Ramblers' Associ- 
ation is the body at the sharp end 
of the sport and among its current 
projects is the Thames Walk: a 
156-mile footpath stroll. Except 
that it is not all on the banks of the 
river: there an? still major gaps, 
including one-and-a-half miles at 
Windsor Home Park where walk- 
ers are faced with locked gates at 
each end. However, the Ramblers' 
Association has won support from 
such important bodies as the 
Thames Water Authority and 
hopes that in time people will be 
able to keep the river in their sight 
every step of the way from Putney 
Bridge to its source. 

• Two life sentence prisoners and 
two prison officers at Stocken 
Prison in Leicestershire yesterday

Gluttons for punishment. 

Recondite 

Asa horse called Masked Ball won 
at 10-1 at Haydock on Wednes- 
day. there were idle queries as to 
why the name had been chosen. 
The answer was that he was really 
meant to have been called Six 
Runs after an accident when 
trying to jump a fence in his 
foalhood. Six Runs? See the Laws 
of Cricket — Law 20, to be precise. 

Rushed out 

The Rugby Football Union has 
turned down £40,000 from people 
who wanted to stage an American 
football match between the Chi- 
cago Bears and the Dallas Cow- 
boys at Twickenham. The reason 
for the refusal was technical. The 
RFU said that their Brobdingnag- 
ian plumbing was not up to the 
five hours during which the 
festivities would last. Funny: the 
Middlesex Sevens last all day, and 
Twickers is always packed for 
that. Is the RFU secretly fright- 
ened of the prospect of William 
“The Refrigerator” Perry playing 
on the sacred turf? The match will 
now be played at Wembley on 
August 3.

Pointer to a hung parliament 


Labour is entitled to crow at its 
Fulham victory. The triumph is 
slightly diminished because every- 
one expected it. but Labour has 
nevertheless secured the 97th 
most marginal Conservative seat 
with a comfortable 3,500 major- 
ity'. ft is its first gain in this 
parliament and only its third gain 
in 15 years (and the Midlands 
triumphs of Nonhfield in 1982 
and Bromsgrove in 1971 were 
shortlived!. 

The swing of ! 0.8 per cent is the 
largest recorded since Southend in 
1 980. Labour won back a seat that 
had been theirs from 1945 to 1979 
and they did it in style. Like the 
Cambridge crew, snaking round 
the southern edge of the constit- 
uency two weeks ago. they pulled 
out in front at the start of the race 
and then added to their lead. 

They retained, or regained, the 
support of the solid blocks of 
council flats behind Earls Court. 
But council tenants account for 
only 24 per cent of the voters. The 
dreary villas off Fulham Palace 
Road' and even the Yuppies ot 
Huriingham. must have contrib- 
uted to the Labour vote. .And 
perhaps the opinion polls helped; 
their message to dedicated ami- 
Thatcherites was that, for once, an 
Alliance vote was a wasted vote: to 
ensure the Iron Lady’s defeat it 
was necessary to switch to Labour. 

But that " is not enough to 
explain Labour's success. Its new 
credibility gained support, in this 
part of London at least. The swing 


by David Butler 


from Conservative to Labour 
(with the Alliance barely advanc- 
ing) would, repeated nationwide, 
put Labour on the brink of a clear 
majority in the Cbmmons. 

For the Conservatives the result 
might have been worse. For the 
first time in this parliament they 
have kept the Alliance in third 
place m a by-election. The i l .5 per 
cent fall in the Tory vote was -less 
than in either of last year's by- 
elections. In Brecon last July they 
went from a victorious 48 percent 
to a third place 28 per cent. At this 
distance into the 1979-83 par- 
liament. they were 20 per cent 
down from their general election 
level and the 1970-74 parliament 
was equally bad. In the opinion 
polls today the Tories are around 
32 percent, only 6 per cent below a 
winning position. 

For the .Alliance the Fulham 
outcome is deeply disappointing. 
The city centres have always been 
a weak point for them but Fulham 
had seemed to offer an opportu- 
nity. The Militant squabbles and 
revulsion against other London 
variants of the wilder left, together 
wjih memories of the Liberal 
triumph in Bermondsey three 
years ago. led to optimism that, by 
squeezing the disillusioned Tory 
vote, it could cut through from 
third to first place, as it did at 
Brecon and in Portsmouth North 
two years ago. In the event its 


vote, for the first time in years, 
obstinately refused to advance as 
the campaign developed. Perhaps 
it suffered because the Alliance 
had so conspicuously shared con- 
trol of the local council. 

If the Fulham movement in 
votes were reflected nationwide. 
Labour would get 325 seats in the 
Commons, the Conservatives 262, 
and the Alliance 38. By-elections, 
however, offer only a limited 
guide to a general election two 
years later. Orpington in 1962 and 
Crosby in 1981 were misleading 
presages of a third party break- 
through- Labour’s last London 
victory (Lewisham in 1957) did 
not exactly forecast the Conser- 
vative triumph of 1959. 

Labour, indeed, has a hard task. 
To gain a majority it needs to 
advance from 209 to 326 seats —a 
gain of 1 1 7. Since only a few of the 
Alliance's 25 seats are at all 
vulnerable to Labour, it has to 
take. say. HO seats from the 
Conservatives. But Labour came 
second in only 116 of the 397 
constituencies where the Conser- 
vatives won in 1983. And at least 
33 of those 1 1 6 seats, where the 
Conservatives won by 20 per cent 
or more, must be classed as out of 
Labour’s reach. 

So. for a clear Labour victory, 
the party has first to ensure a 
swing that will secure every con- 
ceivable marginal seat in which it 


is the challenger, and then it also 
has to claw iis way from third to 
first place in 40-odd constit- 
uencies where voting for the 
Alliance is the obvious way of 
ousting the Conservatives. 

Labour, like the Conservatives, 
needs a minimum of 38 percent of 
the national vote to win a clear 
majority. But an exploration of all 
the likely scenarios suggests that 
Labour cannot win unless it is a j 
dear 6 per cent ahead of the ; 
Conservatives. The Conservatives ; 
can survive with a mere 4 per cent ! 
lead, as these two examples of the 
{Test of narrow wins show.

Linda Christmas reports on North Korea’s new open-door policy 
as the Great Leader seeks to establish a communist dynasty 


E very morning it was the 
same. At 5.40. in the 
dawn light, columns of 
blue-clad figures jog- 
marched up and down 
Changgwang Street in the North 
Korean capital of Pyongyang. 
They were construction workers 
warming themselves against the 
chill Siberian wind which per- 
sisted in postponing spring. Soon 
after the steady tramp-tramp was 
succeeded by tannoyed music 
blaring from the nearby building 
site where they were putting up yet 
another huge luxury hotel. 

It was not only the construction 
workers whose noise made a 
nonsense of the nation's epithet as 
the Land of the Morning Calm. 
Soon after 6am other workers 
formed lengthy bus queues, or 
began emerging from the monu- 
mental. marbled, and muralled 
underground or wandered up 
from the many subways which 
they are instructed to use rather 
than cross major roads. 

Not that there is much danger 
from traffic; there is very little, 
cars being reserved for officials 
and bicycles being few. None the 
less roads must not be crossed and 
traffic police blow shrill whistles at 
ignorant foreigners who do not 
know the rules. 

At 7am a wailing siren fills the 
air to announce that another 
working day has started in the 
Democratic Peoples’ Republic of 
Korea. A long and hard-working 
day to enable the country to inch 
further forward from the devasta- 
tion of a three-year war which 
began in 1950 and which ended in 
stalemate with North and South 
still divided at the 38th parallel. 

The division was imposed in 
1945 after Korea was liberated 
from the Japanese — a replica, in 
miniature of the post-war division 
of Europe. The reunification 
war — which each side accuses the 
other of starting — left North and 
South more divided than ever, 
harnessed to opposing ideologies 
and looking as though they could 
never be anything but a perma- 
nent war museum. 

We have heard much of the 
success of the South, of its 
impressive economic recovery 
culminating this week in the fust 
official visit to Europe of Presi- 
dent Chun, accompanied by a 
large delegation intent on expand- 
ing relations with the EEC. We 
have heard little of the progress in 
the Nonh, which chose to seal 
itself from prying Western eyes 
and slave away with help from 
ccommunist and non-aligned 
countries. This isolation has in- 
evitably shrouded the North in 
mystery and established it in 
Western minds as a bogeyman 
amassing military hardware and 
aggravating the tension in the 
area. 

T o counteract the atten- 
tion given to the South, 
the North is now open- 
ing its doors a little, it 
winces at the thought of 
the world focus on Seoul in the 
1988 Olympics. It dislikes the idea 
of the South and China courting 
each other with contracts and 
contacts. It no longer wants to be 
ignored. 

As a prelude to trade and better 
understanding, American journal- 
ists were the first to be invited last 
summer. Thai did not work too 
well. The New York Times con- 
cluded that the North was a land 
of numbing tedium and that here 
was a nation of Niebelungen 
Niebelheim; the story goes that its 
correspondent was seen kissing 
the ground as the train taking him 
to Peking crossed into China. 

It cannot have been easy. The 
first-time visitor finds it almost 
impossible to acquire information 
and unbiased interpretation. Of- 
ficials do their best but they are 
not as yet used to questions and 
requests: interviews take the form 
of- lengthy lectures, leaving 
journalists scurrying to scavenge 
among the foreign residents for 
additional scraps of information. 
Even this is disappointing since 
none of the few diplomats whom I 



T 



of eternal Kim 







met had bothered to learn the 
language and admitted that the 
early fascination soon turned to 
boredom with the company of a 
few hundred foreigners. They 
longed to move on. 

Their views were much of a 
muchness; they admired the spirit 
of nationalism and the people's 
capacity Tor hard work but were 
wary of much else, for example 
questioning the official informa- 
tion about the huge amount of' 
marbie used in public buildings 
and monuments; is it in feet 
marble, they ask. or some fake 
stuff imported from Japan? 

Surface impressions are easy 
enough. The countryside is glori- 
ous and devoid of poverty and 
squalor. Pyongyang is a beautiful 
city, a spotlessly clean showplace 
with everything build on the grand 
scale, be it the Monument to 
Fallen Soldiers of the Peoples’ 
Army or a maternity hospital, a 
Grand Peoples* Study House or a 
health complex which is in reality 
a huge beauty parlour, an assem- 
bly hall or an ice rink, an arts 
theatre or a museum. 

It all seems a trifle excessive for 
a city of only two million, most of 
whom live in high-rise blocks of 
up to 20 storeys. The back streets 
reveal some less impressive hous- 
ing. but no one will deny the vastly 
improved standard of living. 

The fiat which inquisitive for- 
eigners are shown over consists of 
three rooms, a kitchen and bath- 
room for a family of four. It has 
underfloor heating and is basically 
furnished, a colour television 
being the only trace of luxury. The 
rent amounted to not more than 2 
per cent of wages, which average 
about £30 a month. 

Children stay at home until they 
marry, when the daughter moves 
in with her husband's family and 
the son brings his wife to his 
parents' home. There are no 
pensions for the retired; children 
provide for their elderly parents. 
Everything else, down to school 
uniform, is provided by the stale. 
Education is highly valued, pro- 
vided extensively for the gifted 
and pursued afterwards by the less 
able. It always includes a study of 
the writings of President Kim II 
Sung, known throughout the land 
as The Great Leader. 

The Great Leader is wor- 
shipped. and is everywhere. In the 
last 1 5 jears he has been deified in 
a wax that is daunting to the 
Western x isiior. The Great Leader 
liberated the North from the 
Japanese and has since guided his 


people in every detail. There are 
plaques everywhere 

commemorating his visits to 
schools, factories, monuments 
and museums to give on-the-spot 
guidance for their construction 
and smooth running. 

K im D Sung is not just a 
soldier, he is a thinker 
and political philos- 
opher who studied 
Marx and Lenin and 
found them wanting. To bridge 
the gap he has evolved his own 
philosophy, the Juche idea. It is 
not a philosophy to be digested at 
a glance but it appears to bave 
three basic ingredients: indepen- 
dence in politics, self-support in 
the economy and self-reliance In 
national defence. At times its 
creator sounds like a collectivist 
Samuel Smiles, urging industry, 
thrift and sdf- improvement upon 
the people not for the benefit of 
the individual but for the benefit 
of the state. 

Kim n Sung’s birthplace on the 
outskirts of Pyongyang has been 
turned into a shrine; the huts 
prettied up and labelled and 
surrounded by lawns. Doleful 
music cocoons the scene, provok- 
ing an unfortunate comparison 
with Grace land, Elvis Presley's 
home in Tennessee. A short walk 
axvay a museum has been built 
tracing the life not only of Kim II 
Sung but of his parents and. 
grandparents to prove his im- 
peccable revolutiooarv back- 
ground. The accuracy of some of 
the details is questionable but the 
magnitude of the myth is assured 
and children from a tiny age are 
indoctrinated with every line. 

At a nursery school for the 
children of professional women 
who need to travel 1 watched 

three-year-olds chant their way 
through a question and answer 
session. “Where xvas our Great 
Leader born?”, the teacher asked, 
and the children chanted the reply. 
The teacher asked when he was 
born, and the children gave the 
date. She then pointed to a picture 
on the wall and asked: "What is 
this?” A moppet went forward and 
explained that the picture showed 
Kim II Sung up a tree trying to 
catch a rainbow. He failed and so 
climbed another tree and tried 
again. Still he failed, and in this 
xx-ay he learned about nature. 

On the floor above, two groups 
of children dressed in identical 
salmon-pink tracksuits were in- 
volved in a relay race, each child 
placing a primed letter on a board. 
When completed the words read: 


“We are ibe happiest people in the 
world." 

A foreign resident told me that 
when she xvas about to go to Hong 
Kong she asked her Korean staff if 
there was anything they would like 
brought back. No. they replied, 
our Great Leader provides every- 
thing. Newspapers bearing Ins 
picture must not be thrown away, 
but what happens to them is a 
mystery. 

The Great Leader will be 74 
next week and has already handed 
over much of the day-to-day 
running of the state to his son, 
Kim Jong 0, who is 43 and known 
throughout the land as The Dear 
Leader. Needless to say there is 
much speculation about the 
advisability of such a dynastic 
move — the prospect displeases 
even North Korea's friends, China 
and Russia — and even more gos- 
sip about- when it - is likely to 
happen and if it will meet foe 
approval of the military, of which 
he has never been a member. - • 

R ight now North Korea 
is at a crossroads and 
the signposts are none 
too dear. The economy 
appears to be stagnant; 
foe second seven-year plan ended 
in 1984 with the boast that the 
annual growth rate since 1978 had 
been 9.6 per cent The new plan 
was expected last July, but there is 
still no sign of it Last year saw 
many of foe older leaders dropped 
in favour of younger technocrats 
who favour trade links with other 
countries. 

Direct foreign investment is not 
encouraged because it breeds 
dependence; foe favoured option 
is joint ventures, which so far 
seem to have been less than 
successful The French have tried 
co-building an hotel but dis- 
cussions have faltered on foe 
suitability of the chosen site. 
Others are wary. North Korea 
went on a spending spree in the 
1970s and did not pay the bills. As 
a result it is listed as the least 
credit-worthy nation in foe workL 
Economic troubles appear to 
stem from heavy spending on 
defence, which has now been 
reduced to about 14 per cent of the 
budget from something like 30 per 
cent in the 1960s. About 5 per cent 
of the population — 800.000 out 
of 19 million — are in the armed 
forces, which are bigger than those 
of South Korea even though the 
population of the North is only 
half that of the South. 

Despite this military disparity 
the North claims that its in- 
tentions are misunderstood. It 
insists that reunification by force 
is out of the question and cannot 
be achieved by one side, conquer- 
ing the other. “We don't want 
another war," I xvas told- “What 
has been achieved is too valuable 
to be destroyed.” What North 
Koreans want, they say, is di- 
alogue and consultation to achieve 
one country, communist in the 
North, capitalist in the South, 
each with an autonomous govern- 
ment under a central authority 
with an alternating presidency. 

Such talk seems pie in foe sky 
when simpler questions of eco- 
nomic links between the two 
continue to flounder, xvith each 
side accusing the other of dragging 
its feet and deliberate obstruction. 

Outsiders argue that the North 
is less interested in improving 
links than it says. History show& 
foal for thousands of years there 
has been antagonism between 
North and South, based originally 
on trite] antagonisms. The South 
has traditionally seen foe North as 
uncouth, uneducated and full of 
troublemakers, and the North to 
regard foe southerners as lazy, 
scheming rascals. The talking now 
ts intended not so much to 
overcome that division, exacer- 
bated by ideological differences, 
but to improve North Korea’s 
image and try to build bridges with 
Japan and the United Stans. 

This former Land of foe the 
Morning Calm has become the 
Land of Morning Action. There is 
much more to come.

The distance Labour has to 
travel can be put in other terms. 
As long as the Alhance gets 25 per 
cent or more of the total vote 
Labour can win only if the 
Conservatives are squeezed down 
to 32 per cent of the total - lOper 
cent less than they got in 1983. 
Since 1945 no election has shown 
a party suffering such a fell in 
support. 

F ulham shows Labour is recov- 
ering. But it has a long way to go. 
What F ulham does is to shorten 
foe odds on a hung parliament 

The author is a JeUow of Nuffield 
College v Oxford. 


Thirty yeais ago Cakler-HaH was 
the first nuclear power station m 
the world to srppfy grid etectnc- 
ity. Britain was ahead of ev eryon e. 

Today 65 per cent of dectrictty 
in France is generated by nuclear 
poxwer; in Belgium 55 per cent* 
Taiwan 46.5 per cent, Sweden 45 J 
per cent and West Germany 25 3 
per 'cent. The Soxriet Union has 
one i of the largest rivfl nuclear 
power programmes witho ut a 
word of ann-nuctear protest from 
anywhere. Of the large industrial 
nations, Britain has one of the 
smallest, with less than 20 per cent 
of our electricity provided by 
nuclear power. We are so_ far 
behind that the Central Electricity 
Generating Board has had to 
import electricity from France — 
25 per cent cheaper than it can. 
produce electricity here. 

From how on nuclear powered 
electricity will steadily become 
cheaper ih«n tha t from oil or coal- 
fired ; power stations. French 
industry's energy costs are a* least 
25 percent lower than Britain's. In 
Scotland, where 40 per cent of 
electricity comes from nuclear 
power \ electricity charges are 
substantially tower than in Eng- 
land and Wales. What happened? 

Deference to the miners is part 
of the s»ry. ft xvas thought that the 
threat of nuclear power would stop 
their stakes and encourage them 
to increase productivity. But only 
this week foe CEGB claimed that 
its purchase of British coal is 
tantamount to a- £500 million-a- 
year subsidy to the coal industry. 

The nteers have been aide d by 
the ann-nudear lobby, which has 
managed Wo confuse civil nuclear 
power with nuclear weapons in the 
public mind. Splendid propag- 
anda was provided by the accident 
at the Tljrpe Mile Island nuclear 
power station in Pennsylvania in 
1979, everT though no one. was 
killed or felt any after effects.. 


ante was provided by the accident 
at the Tljrpc Mile Island nuclear 
power station in Pennsylvania in 
1979, everT though no one . xvas 
killed or fell any after effects.. 

In Britatii no one has been killed 
from the effects of radiation from 
nuclear power plants, but thou- 
sands have .been kilted in mining; 
fishing, construction and other 
industries. The much publicized 
leaks at Sdlafield, though some 
ought not to have happened, have 
been trixoaL One .vrizich made

more radioactivity than there is in 
a luminous watch. Radiation on 
beaches near. Seilafidd is lower 
than in Cornwall, but no-.ooe

for boKtey-mafeeks. 

Of afl foe radiation xwe are

Five times more domes from am

Then there is the silggestionthat 
somehow a n udear plant can blow 
up Hfce an: H-bomb,\ with ^con- 
sequent mass eaflenntoation mid . 
cancer, diseases. Thatj,is impos- 
sible. An explosion might con- 
ceivably cause some increase of 
internal radiation-in th^mant but 
it could not have the. effect of a 
nuclear weapon because It is not 
constructed that way, assail sci- 


entists agree. There have also been 
suggestions that the rate ofteuke- 
nuainsoroe areas close to nodear 
plants is lusher than foe national 
average. But k is also higher in 
many other small areas nowhere 
• near nodear power plants. Search 
for a group out of foe national 
pattern and you can find one

Ignorance, fanned into super- 
stitious dread, helps delay oar 
nuclear power programme. So 
does the British tove of planning 
inquiries — part of our decline 
into Afoertian-gyie democracy, 
for ‘ever debating everything. 
France has no such problem. The 
Sizcwell inquiry ended in March 
1985 after-two qnd a quarter years. 
The report is not due for months. 
Bat it is argent to sort on foe 
nuclear power projects involved 
because, as the older power sta- 
tions are retired * we will otherwise 
soon be generating even less

tion tor a reprocessing plant at 
Dotmreay may not be obstructed 
by many of the usual protesters

jobs of 2300 people. 

As for waste. Sir Alan CotlreB 
FRS in Now Safe Is Nuclear 
Energy ? has shown that foe 
method of waste disposal involves 
no risk to this or future genera- 
tions. The Swedish Kam-Branste- 
Sakerhet report of 1978 said that 
even if adeep drinkmg'weO were 
drilled dose to a nodear waste 
deposit sixer, the increase in foe 
personal radiation dose of regular 
usees of foe well would be well 
below foe variations .in natural 
radiation betwe e n different places. 
Thai report concluded: “The pro- 
posed mefoodfbrtbe final storage 
of higb4evei waste glass is there- 
fore . .deemed to be absolutely 
safe.” In percentage terms Sweden 
b producing more than double the 
amount tf nuclear powered 
. electricity than.Britain. 

Protesters, many of them also 
CND sympathizers, have had 
some success m turning the public 
against Ductearvpowered etecvic- 
ity. Few people realize that already 
nearly one fifth of our electricity 
comes from .fob source. The 
Gallop poll published in the 
Sunday Telegraphof March 16 in 
ns first question raid that about 12 
per cent of our electricity came 
from nudearpower, thus making 
foe respondent suppose that the 
amomrt'.was negligible. On this 
inaccurate basis only 24 per cent 
ihnn ohr nodear power generation 
should be increased, as against 39 
per cent in 197& foe number 
thinking that- there 1 should be no 
increaseor that fiteetricity genera- 
tion from nuclear power should 
stop altogether rose from 36 per 
cent in 1976 to 65 per cent. 

Whh oil reserves dwindling, lhe 
government feces a challenging 
propaganda effort to get public 
support for the only obvious way 
of generating cheap electricity- As 
for coal, it need not be wasted: 
within 20 years it could provide 
petrol as cheaply as oil from 
processes now being developed.

with : the person - . purely 
“collective” liberation is an-

liberation has necessary. If 
secondary, social implications. 
It is Christian work to work for 
justice. - 

The Vatican document has 
avoided- the worst vices of 
some church commentaries on 
political and economic mat- 
ters: there is no spurious 
pursitit of “equality” in it, nor 
does it; give precedence to 
collective or governmental ac- 
tion. Instead the important 
Catholic principle of 
subsidiarity — that social and 
economic functions should be 
discharged at the lowest pos- 
: sible level of the social order *- 
is employed to enhance per- 
sonal control over life-style, in 
the name of liberation. Small 
is still beautiful (as the Vatican 
should also tell itself) 

None of these ideas is 
entirely novel, and like most 
Vatican documents each page 
is. supported by numerous 
references to earlier Catholic 
authorities. What is fresh is the 
integration of them into some- 
thing approaching a system, 
with liberation and freedom as 
the core. 

Part of the attraction of 
Marxism is its systematic 
character, its appeal to logical 
analysis and its claim to 
scientific authority. The Vati- 
can has set up an alternative 
logic, which boasts - of the 
potency of the Christian, faith 
as a better and more human 
deliverer. And it passes the test 
of internal consistency, and of 
coherence with tire received 
tradition . of Catholic social 
teadmi& That,, in a Latin 
American context, is probably 
its greatest asset. . 

A theology cobbled together 
from bits and pieces, amply to 
meet the political challenge of 
Marxism, would fail, to bear 
the weight that must be put on 
iL If Latin America is to be 
drawn safely away from the 
snares of dialectical materi- 
alism, it will be by a concep-

when all the above factors are 
taken into account, points to a 
general election in which the . 
Tories remain the largest party

17 per cent in the constit- 
uencies of Ryedafe and West 
Derbyshire where by-dections

From the Director-General of the 
Confederation qf British Industry 
Sir. Your editorial “Educational 
sabotage** (April 4), seems to lead, 
regrettably, from many of die right 
arguments to the wrong conclu- 
sion. Many CBI members were 
uneasy about the GCSE when it 
was first mooted, fearing a “no 
fiDure" approach stan- 

dards. 

Only after widespread consulta- 
tions did we conclude that an 
examination system eared to 
different ability levels and with 
specific criteria designed to show 
whai pupils have achieved rather 
than what, by competitive aca- 
demic standards, they have failed 
to achieve .would be in the 
interests of young people and 
employers alike. 

We would endorse, circum- 
spectly, the view of the President 
of the Secondary Heads Associ- 
ation (March 20) that it “should be 
the most invigorating and im- 
portant change in approach, sylla- 
bus content and manner of 
assessment in secondary schools 
this century**. Time wifi tefi, but 
the aim is right. ■ 

Certainly the approach fits with 
all that is being done to establish 
standards of occupational com- 
petence in youth Training. We see 
no conflict with the better under- 
standing of business which “In- 
dustry Year 1986” is promoting 
with so much help from both 
education and industry, nor with 
the Technical and Vocational 
Education Initiative, to which you 
rightly draw attention. 

You counsel the Government to 
baric off for a time and to engage in 
a series of manoeuvres which 
would have perplexed a con- 
dottiere. This is to give too much 
credit to rhetoric, propaganda and 
negotiating ploys, 

- Given the will and the available 
resources for training, the teachers 
could start the GCSE programme 
on time if they wished, and I 
believe that most of them do so 
wish. At least let us give them the 
opportunity to gain the public 
esteem which they seek.

The chapel trail . 

From Mrs Sheila M. Mason 
Sir, In view of our “holiday 
weather”, your readers may be 
glad to hear of a pastime which 
can be enjoyed in all weathers. 
Encouraged by a publication from 
the National Museum of Wales 
entitled Welsh Chapels, we spent 
the recent holiday on a “chapel 
trail" ip North Wales. 

On foot or in the car, we hunted 
out the chapels and were aston- 
ished by the wealth of variety: 
square plan, side-wall fa c ad e, 
gable— ended auditorium, classic. 
Gothic, miscellaneous — all to be 
found within a small radius. Pink, 
bine, beige, red— brick, stone, 
mahi— coloured; Bethania, Mo- 
riah, Ebeneser, Sfloam, Elim, Jeru- 
salem; the permutations seem 

These chapels are very photo- 
genic and furnish excellent ma- 

Busy old bees 

Front the Chairman cf the British 
Beekeepers' Association 
Sr, Id reporting the current 
display of Domesday Book at the 
Public Record Office m London, 
Mr Alan Hamilton (April 3) drew 
attention to some of its interesting 
contents. One fascinating piece of 
information was that throughout 
the country only 16 beekeepe r s 
were listed. 

. This surprisingly low number 
may lead your readers to the 
erroneous conclusion that 
beekeeping was uncommon at that 
time. In truth the craft was widely 
practised by Anglo-Saxon peas- 
ants and one can only speculate 
that the 16 identified were special- 
ists (beo-ceoris) employed by 
_ some larger manors. 

The more detailed Little 
Domesday Book, which contains 
entries for Norfolk, Suffolk and 
Essex lists 1,441 hives in those 
counties. This would be the 
number owned fry the manors 
since the far greater number 
possessed by peasants were not 
required to be registered. 

Extrapolating these figures to 
embrace the whole country, it can 
be reasonably concluded that 
beekeeping was a common pur- 
suit, albeit on a part-time basis. 
Yours faithfully.

Musical excellence 

&r, Bernard Levin must have had 
ihg Hate of publication in mind 
(April 1) when he invited his 
readers to believe that excellence 

in music is feared by aD the music 
colleges excepting the Royal Acad- 
emy of Music. The only possible 
objection would be to the fa- 
voured treatment , of one institu- 
tion by the Secretary of State. 

The fact thaioiir elder sister has 
chosen to set her cap at a suitor 
who controls eft our purse strings 
. must surely have been expected to 
cause a quaver or two of exate- 


probtems facing the education 
system m this country (leader, 
April 2.) 

You are also right in identifying 
three of these difficulties; a 
curriculum out of touch with the 
needs of a society which increas- 
ingly needs to live by its wits to 
make a living; a curriculum which 
fails to offer the prospect of 
worthwhile achievement to the 
great majority of youngsters; and a 
system of management which 
continues to spend ever increasing 
sums of money without bring able 
to guarantee to everyone basic 
decent conditions for learning in 
terms of buildings, equipment, 
materials and salaries. 

The answers, in my view, lie in 
the following measures. First, the 
Government, representing the 
widest interests of society, should 
accept a more open ami direct 
responsibility for what is taught in 
schools and for its cost, and unite 
the service behind a national 
curriculum in tune with the needs 
of the community as a whole. 
Only Government can do this. 

Second, a more determined 
effort should be made to identify 
die levels of attainment most 
children should reach in key 
subjects at certain stages of then’ 
development and a duty placed an 
the education service to achieve 
them. Everyone talks about stan- 
dards, bat few have any idea what 
these are. 

Third, the system of administer- 
ing the education service at local 
ana national level should be 
reformed to establish a direct 
managerial link between the 
money spent on the education 
service ami the results which are 
expected of it As things are, 
education expenditure bters no 
relation to any educational pro- 
gramme. 

Unfortunately, the measures 
outlined in the recently published 
Education Bffl are designed to 
make each of these aims, which 
form elementary provisions in the 
educational systems of all our 
main industrial and commercial 
competitors, virtually impossible 
to achieve. 

I am. Sir, your obedient servant,

A start can be made in any

small, with surprising results. Can 
any town in Wales boast more

small area than Holyhead? Which

This pursuit could absorb you

Royal ‘rules’ 

From DrJL G. Lawson 
Sr, The Lord Chamberlain has 
recently issued new roles as to the 
commercial exploitation of the 
royal family. There are two points 
to be made. First, and this is some 
anomaly, Sarah Ferguson is not a 
member of the royal family until 
her marriage and hence lies out- 
side the rules until her vows have 
been formally made. 

Second, and far more seriously, 
the Lord Chamberlain’s “rules" 
possess no legal standing whatso- 
ever, yet are treated and published 
as though they had. There is no 
more in the statute books than 
section 12 of the Trade Descrip- 
tions Act 1968 which prohibits 
false indications that goods or 
services of a particular type have 
been supplied to her Majesty or 
any member of the royal family. 
But this is not what the Lord 
Chamberlain's rules are about. 

It is sad, no doubt, that a 
pleasant occasion such as a royal 
wedding should become sullied by 
unseemly commercialism. It is, 
however, yet more disconcerting 
and worrying that “rules" should 
be issued which altogether lack the 
force oflaw. 

May 1 request, through the 
courtesy of your columns, that the 
Lord Chamberlain explains his 
position? 

Yours faithfully,

Vatican and the 
State of Israel 

From Rabbi Sidney Brichio 
Sir, Clifford Longley once again 
indicates profound insight into the 
dynamics of imer-fenh relations 
in his analysis of the Vatican's 
attitude to the Jews and the 
Promised Land. He states (March 
31) that the Vatican's refusal to 
recognise the State of Israel is a 
“matter on which many Jews feel 
surprisingly strongly". A careful 
reading of his article; however, 
reveals the reason for the im- 
portance we Jews ascribe to this 
denial. 

For all Jews, non-Zionists in- 
cluded, the recognition of Israel by 
the Roman Catholic Church 
would be to confirm full accep- 
tance of the rigjht of the Jewish 
people to entertain its own mes- 
sianic hopes alongside those of 
Christianity. 

Jewish leaders have appreciated 
the problem posed to Christian 
theology when the despised people 
who rejected Christ following 
2,000 years of exile and humili- 
ation return to Zion, re-establish 
sovereignty and in the miraculous 
Six Day War reconquer Jerusalem 
and take charge of its holy places. 
How can Christianity find room 
for Judiasm triumphant or, as Mr 
Longjey puts it, “a place for the 
Promised Land”? 

Indeed, the Vatican's recog- 
nition of the State of Israel would 
prove once and for all that the 
Holy See had ceased to consider 
the Jews as a rejected race and 
would remove the remaining 
seeds of anti-Semitism in Catholic 
theology. Until the Vatican takes 
this bold step, all declarations of 
tolerance will be mere words. 

Once the right of the Jews to 
possess the Promised Land is 
recognised, the desire to win 
converts among Jews wifi appear 
no different than Rome’s sincere 
wish to share its road to salvation 
with all “non-believers” - the 
right of any religion which be- 
lieves in the ultimate truth of its 
revelation.

Of all nationalised industries, 
water authorities have the closest 
relationship with the natural 
environment, both because of 
their operational duties (water 
supply, sewage treatment and 
disposal, arterial drainage) and 
their regulatory responsibilities 
(water quality, water abstraction, 
land drainage). 

The RSPB fears that although 
privatisation may provide 
opportunities to seek additional 
safeguards for the environment, 
the Government's proposals for 
environmental protection will be 
inadequate to counteract the 
commercial pressures which will 
be placed on the privatised water 
service pics; environmental dam- 
age is likely to result from efforts 
to reduce costs by lowering stan- 
dards. 

Much will, depend on the detail 
of the new legislation. The im- 
mediate danger is that in its haste 
to realise “its £5bn pre-election 
boost", the Government wifi not 
permit enough time for consulta- 
tion and derate. 

Already the Government has 
side-stepped one round of 
consultation that it had arranged: 
it went straight from a restricted 
consultation with the 10 water 
authority chairmen to the 
privatisation White Paper, when it 
had promised a public consulta- 
tion paper in between. Such speed 
does not bode well for the environ- 
ment

No short cots 

From Mr D. Forbes Mackintosh 
Sir, Readers of your admirable 
sports reports may have noticed in 
today's issue two interesting 
observations. John Woodcock, 
writing from the West Indies 
about the infrequency of com- 
pulsory practices for the touring 
Engisb team, says: 

Monday's defeat in The last of the 
one-day internationals was 
England's fifth in succession, an 
unprecedented sequence over all the 
years . . - The batsmen have very 
little confidence left . . . They ought 
all to have practised, whether or- 
dered io or not. 

Hugh Taylor, commenting on 
Heart of Midlothian's record un- 
beaten run m the Scottish Premier 
Football League, writes: 
Macdonald and Jardine (the dub's 
manager and player assistant) say 
"There is do magic formula for 
success. It is mostly hard work mid 
getting the players to believe m 


Admittedly, Hearts have not to 
face Marshalls and Garners and 
Holdings asd Patersons; only 
Hibernian and Celtic and Ranger 
and Aberdeen and Dundee 
United. Even so, m wager that 
their practices arc compulsory.

IRISH AGITATORS 
IN NEW YORK 

(FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) 

NEW YORK. March 25 l 

There are over four million 
Irishmen in America, or people 
having at. least one Irish parent. 
They are pretty weD scattered over 
the whole breadth of the land; but 
the largest bodies of them are in 
the northern cities, the largest of 
all in New York, which is proudly 
called by them l *one of the largest 
Irish cities on the face of the 
earth." It is a Bingnlar fact about 
these people that, when they 
identify themselves thoroughly 
with American ideas and interests, 
they make progress in everything 
that is regarded honourable and 
desirable. But whenever they per- 
sist m remembering that they are 
Irishmen, and they continue to 
brood over matters they have left 
behind them for ever, they remain 

B qpeeinl fl pgfl in the nftwnnimi ty — 

poor, illiterate, and generally dis- 
contented, eminent in local politics 
only as representatives of the bar- 
room interest, and backward in 
every reject There is no prejudice 
in America which hinders an 
Irishman from rising even to a seat 
in Congress, or to considerable 
social influence as soon as he 
becomes American in feeling. It is 
in the We&t and South, and in the 
farming counties of tire East, that 
the Iri& make most progress, or to 
considerable social influence as 
soon as he becomes American in 
feeling, ft is in the West and South, 
and in the fanning counties of the 
East, that the Irish tnolrg the most 
progress. They are widely scat- 
terra, and they intermarry to a 
considerable extent with the native 

population. But in the eastern 
cities they many cmly among 
themselves, and they remain Irish 
clean through. Their highest ambi- 
tion is to have their “rights” 
recognized and to get their “share" 
of the municipal offices. In New 
York they have the majority of all 
the latter. 

The Irish are a curious dement 
in our American communities. 
They speak our language and they 
axe heartily welcome here. The 
majority of them are sober, hard- 
working people, and they oxe given 
every chance to earn good wages 
wwH to get ahead in life. But 
somehow they do not assimilate 
with our people as they ought. The 
Germans are very much better 
c itizens, in spite of the fact that 
they are fond of speaking their own 
tongue and of reading newspapers 
printed therein. They have come to 
stay, however, and they want to be 
identified as Americans. But Bad-

the moment be lands at Castle

free country, in which, with a few 
restrictions, every man can do as 
he pleases, his quills stand out in 
every direction, and he never seems

some sort of a row — political 
social, or industrial The way in

nobody as a real A meri c an except 
himself, and the only positive proof 
that a man can bring that he really 
is an American is, in Paddy's 
estimation, a continual banging 
away in private and public life 
against the British rule of an island 
that he did not like well enough to 
stay in h im se l f . 

It is probable that the Irish 
would assimilate more rapidly with 
American life, and be more con- 
tented, were it not for the continual 
visits of agitators among them. 
They are the men who make all the 
mischief. They are, at any rate, the 
ones who have exposed America to 
the earnest criticsm which we have 
of late seen in the columns of The 
Times, If they would stay away all 
would be welLThe complete failure 
of all the Fenian movements 
originating among the Irish in the 
United States (none of these 
movements ever had a particle of 
sympathy from Americans) left 
that element rather indisposed to 
further action. —

Sir, Can Mr Whailey’s hardy 
tortoise (April 2) be the same one 
whose hatching you once an- 
nounced in the births column of 
The Tinted Writing from memory 
it was in the sum mer of 1 938 and 
the notice read,** TESTUDO, to 
Georgina, wife of O.C.Testudo.a 
son (Wfa alley George)." 

A perceptive journalist, suspect- 
ing that Auntie's leg lad been 
pulled, visited Oxford aday or two 
later and learned that Eights Week 
bad just finished and the Oriel 
Vin had failed to come head of 
the river; that the Hon. Secretary 
of the Oriel College Boat Club was 
George Whalley; that in the 
second quadrangle at Oriel there 
had long been two tortoises on 
whose shells were blazoned the 
college arms and the year the 
college had been head of the river; 
and that a tiny tortoise had just 
appeared beside the other two 
with “lebabod" inscribed across 
ns shell 

For W.G. Testudo to turn up in 
Syna 12 years later and take up 
with his namesake would not, 
surely be beyond the powers of the 
only tortoise ever to have his birth 
announced in The limes.

THE TIMES SATURDAY APRIL 12 1986 


THE ARTS 



Television 

Father’s 


years 
of glory 


IVo television producer is a 
hero to his film editor Sir 
Him' Wh eMoa, the former 
BBC television managing di- 
rector who died last month, 
was the exception to this role. 

Omnibus (BBCl) began its 
new series with a tribute to 
Wbeldon as the founding fa- 
ther of television arts pro- 
grammes and Alan Tyrer, 
Wheldon's editor on his leg- 
endary arts programme, Mon- 
itor, was among Che assembly 
of great and good programme 
makers whom be inspired — a 
company which included Mel- 
vin Bragg. Humphrey Burton. 
Jonathan Miller, Ken Russell 
and John Schlesinger. 

The programme was a mod- 
el of its kind which conveyed 
affection while avoiding senti- 
ment and paused to glory in 
some of Monitor’s most memo- 
rable films. 

ft was wholly appropriate 
for the current flagship of the 
BBC arts armada to concen- 
trate on Wbeldon as a pro- 
gramme maker. His profile 
emerged as that of a great 
editor who drew the best from 
his associates by a combina- 
tion of high intension, profes- 
sional skill dedication and the 
ability to strike fear into his 
associates' hearts. 

On Channel 4, Iran — A 
Righteous Republic was a film 
made with the combination of 
flair and rigorous analysis of 
which Huw Wbeldon would 
have approved. This was a 
balanced, detailed report of a 
kind which is far too rare in 
current affairs television.

In reporting on the state of 
the Islamic Republic of Iran, 
the programme made it dear 
that this was a society inspired 


by vaioes which are held far 


more seriously than any moral 
or religious belief in the West. 
The Islamic revolution of Iran 
is, like the Russian revolution, 
a movement which carries an 
obligation for its adherence to 
export its ideals. 


Tim Hodlin, the 
UDgramme's producer and an 
xperienced commentator oo 
bib affairs, visited the theo- 
Ogical schools in the holy dry 
if Qnm (Qum) to find religions 
sailers from many countries in 
raining there. They learnt 
oreign languages — including 
English — along with the finer 
loints of Koranic 
Bterpretation. 


The influence of these ideals 
was traced to recent terrorist 
activities in the Lebanon, with 
film taken in a secret mosque. 
It was clear that Iran has 
assumed the ideological lead- 
ership of the muslim world. In 
hand with this penetrating 
analysis went the beauty of the 
Iranian landscape, an aesthet- 
ic pleasure which held the 
viewer's attention throughout. 


Celia Brayfield 


“Book by Joe Masteroff. 
Based on the play by John van 
Druten . . ." How 

Isherwood's stories of pre-war 
Berlin suffered in the years 
before Bob Fosse's superlative 
1972 movie adaptation of the 
Kandorand Ebb musical. And 
how movies based on stage 
productions tend to supersede 
the original in the public's 
imagination. “Follow that" 
says the lavishly successful 
screen version. One has to 
salute the producer Paul 
Barnard's boldness in mount- 
ing this, the first full stage 
production of Cabaret for 18 
years, if only because there is 
so little else to salute. That is 
what this show amounts to — 
two and a half hours of 
boldness. 

The constant lure for every 
adaptor has been the central 
luminous image of Sally 
Bowles, the good girl turned 
good-time girl riding her luck 
in a degraded foreign milieu 
with a heady blend of panache 
and vulnerability. The story's 
tragic overtones derive from 
her headstrong determination 
to carry the torch of the 1920s 
into the wrong decade, when 
history was staging its ugly 
comeback: the wolves are 
howling outside the ballroom 
windows, but Sally will not 
accept that the party is over. 

Kelly Hunter looks abso- 
lutely right in the role — a 
marmalade-bobbed moppet in 
a zebra-skin coat — but her 
manner does little to convince 
one that she really has traded 
her hockey stick for a vamp's 
microphone. She is neither 


raunchy enough nor winsome 
enough lor the emotional 
range required, and her sing- 
ing voice sounds at times 
unpleasantly strident 

The cataiystic role belongs 
to Wayne Sleep as the epicine 
MC of the Kit Kat Gub, and 
one can only report that he 
fails to live up to Joel Gray's 
Oscar-winning performance 
in the film. The feet that he 
cannot really sing is less 
damaging than the blandness 
of his dancing, which is slick, 
precise, well oiled and quite 
without feeling. He is. oddly 
enough, more credible as the 
boatered boulevardier of “If 
vou could see her” than as the 
malevolent imp of “Political 
Tap'*. So much control and so 
little impact 

The plot itself has gained 
(or. rather, the film judicious- 
ly combined) the German Mr 
Norris (Rodney Cottam) and 
the old Jewish shopkeeper 
(Oscar Quitak) who woos and 
almost wins Frauiein 
Schneider (Vivienne Martin): 
their relationship provides 
both an ocean of schmaltz and 
die focus for anti-semitic sen- 
timent The production's 
most telling moment comes 
when silhouetted thugs chant- 
ing “Judenrasse!“ hurl blood 
against the shop’s glass doors, 
which open to reveal 
“innocent" passers-by — an 
effect altogether more potent 
than the Nazi salutes that 
elsewhere turn into gracious 
bows. 



Oat of step: Wayne Sleep as the MC and Kelly Hooter aa Sally Bowles in Cabaret 


The most wasted moment 
arrives when Miss Hunter tells 
Peter Land, our man with the 
co-respondent shoes and the 
Remington, of her abortion; 
he registers shock, slaps her 
face and wheels away in the 
space of a heartbeat, which 
suggests (like so much else 


here) that the director Gillian 
Lynne has sacrificed drama to 
choreography. The acting 
overall is on a lower plane 
than the brisk and enthusiastic 
ensemble dancing 
Mark Thompson’s design is 
an amalgam of sub-Grosz 
murals, lifesize puppet figures 
out of Kokoschka and 
“decadent” costumes. 
Troupes of interesting young 
men flouncing around (for 
“Money") in white bathing 
suits stuck with silver discs, or 
their female counterparts 
strutting the stage (for the title 
number) with slicked back 
hair, dinner suits and murder- 
ous cigarette holders merely 
provide the housewives in the 
house with a giggle, while 
chorus lines of goosestepping 
lovelies done up in 
Wehrmacbi helmets, red tas- 
selled epaulettes and gleaming 
jackboots made your reviewer 
wish he was watching Spring- 
time for Hitler instead.

“contemporary adaptation" 
Side Story, 


Martin Cropper 


of Gorky, An East ___ 
is a topographical whim: none 
of the human jetsam on 
display — an alcoholic former 
teacher, an unemployed car- 
penter, a prostitute, a fake 
African chief an old widow 
and a young thief — has an 
identifiably east London ac- 
cent. 

The case for contemporane- 
ity is undeniable, since with 
the exception of the thief and 
the prostitute the tenants are 
kept alive by supplementary 
benefit. These are, in other 
words, the lower rather than 
die lowest depths of modem 
society; the despair of absolute 
penury has been replaced by 
state-subsidized apathy. 

In real life, of course, the 
most salient result of this 
condition is boredom, and 


characters, following n 
are too busy en 
with their problems 
squabbles to surrender to 
natural state! 

The dramatically 
intruder, a mysterious 
tenant played with 
authority by Ram John 
er, does indeed attem 
change their state by of 
advice and encouragenu 
recommending the thief 
start a new life in Birmingb 
and persuading the alcoh 
to lock the bottle. R< 
Summers’s twitchy dried-ou 
dipso is an excellent piece 
characterization, and one’s 
tendon is also held by Ru 
Walker's energetic portrayal 
of the sham Nigerian chief and 
Maria Charles's widow. 

Roland Rees's production b 
crisp, intelligent and largely 
unpretentious but the piece 
fails to live up to the possibili- 
ties of its conception.

amaz- 
ingly evocative, transporting 
the listener back 2,000 years as 
if under a spell. 

The magic originates in the 
interplay of certain elements. 
At one level here is a resolute- 
ly pr t*^X iral disquisition upon 
agricultural management 
founded on acute observation 
and delivered with that brand 
of assurance which is itself a 
sort of poetry. This in turn is 
set within the realm of nature 
as a whole and this again 
within an idea of the world 
and the cosmos as fer as Virgil 
could perceive h — and be 
himself was plainly, rather 
endearingly, aware that this in 
some r e sp ects was not very 
fer. So much cannot be ex- 
plained: why does the sun rise 
and set, why does the sea rise 
and fell? 

Here the poet conveys his 
undemanding that there must 
be a reality beyond what he is 
able to conceive, though not 
necessarily nndiscoverable. 
The translation has proved -a 
ready vehicle for all this and 
the reading by John Franklya- 
Robbins catches its shifting 
tones quite beautifully, from 
the down-to-earth to the cos- 
mic and even, at the end of 
last Tuesday's reading, to the 
Arcadian vision, suggesting 
that, for ail his powers of 
observation, Virgil had a rath- 
er frail appreciation of the 
ruder realities of the peasant- 
farmer’s life.

Dance 


American 
Ballroom Theatre 

Sadler’s Wells 


If you are wondering whai a 
company of ballroom dancers 
are doing ai Sadler's Wells, the 
short answer is that they are 
providing the most complete- 
ly and surprisingly enjoyable 
dance progam me 1 have found 


on any British stage this year. 

tdv 


They start with the advan- 
tage of extremely attractive 
music, familiar, easy on the 
ear. eminently danceable. 

Sometimes the melodies are 
buried loo deep beneath an 
excessive arrangement but 
most of the pieces flowed 
smoothly. The Pasadena Roof 
Orchestra play with a swinging 
sense of rhythm, and also 
provide the show's setting. 

The right music helps but is 
not itself enough. On paper 
another American company. 
Garth Fagan's Bucket Dance 
Theatre has more varied mu- 
sic, from reggae to Dvorak. 


But they used it boringly, 
like wall paper, to provide a 
flat background to their num- 
bers. and everything looks 
alike, especially as Fagan's 
choreography rarely extends 
beyond stretches and balances 
interrupted by odd fidgety 
bits. So his dancers, all enthu- 
siastic. some rather good, one 
(Steve Humphrey) very good, 
make limited impact. 

However, at Sadler's Wells 
the dancers of American Ball- 
room Theatre respond won- 
derfully well to the music. 

There are four couples, 
nicely varied in looks and 
manner. Gary and Lori Pierce 
have most of the romantic 
numbers, ranging from a 
smooth “Night and Day” to a 
smoochy “Besame Mucho”. 


They also dance a nice light- 
Vhite Tie 


hearted “Top Hat, White 
and Tails" in which he sails 
into soaring cabrioles while 
she keeps the rhythm going 
with her preuy footwork. 

John and Cathi Nyemchek 
are the comedians of the team, 
very nimble too, excelling in 


bravura flurries of steps. They 
also dance “Fascination" with 
the breathless, starry-eyed air 
of a couple who have just 
fallen head over heels in love. 

Richard and Bonnie Diaz 
come into their own in the 
Latin American part of the 
evening, with “Desafinado” 
and a “Tea for Two Cha Cha", 
but. as with the whole team, 
they contribute valuably to 
group dances throughout 

Pierce Dulaineand Yvonne 
Marceau. founders, directors 
and stars of the company, by 
no means hog the attention. 
True, they show a nicely 
humorous flair in the show's 
first featured duet "The 
Continental", but then for 
much of the evening they are 
seen as key members of the 
ensemble. When the reveal 
their full skills near the end, in 
“Misty", however, the effect is 
breathtaking, both 

marvellously co-ordinated 
and fluent It is the highlight of 
a fine show.

Four into one goes so smoothly 


thinly spread through the 
string of business deals, comic 
cameos and gentle m usings on 
love through which the plot 
makes its attenuated progress. 
And David Ritch, who is 
responsible for this staging, 
makes little attempt in the 
first act to distract us from fee 
painful filling in of genealogies 
required of poor Jenik and 
Mafenka. Exits and entrances 
in lines parallel to fee horizon, 
and static conversations in 
front of a farm cart hang in fee 
middle of the greensward do 
have a way of reinforcing 
rather than relieving the 
score's tendency to repetition 
and symmetry. 

Peter Hirsch, making his 
debut in fee pit, conducts wife 
care, precision and a certain 
affection, but never wife quite 
enough sense of flair or comic 
panache to make one do 
anything but simply long for 
them to send in fee downs. Ai 
last the circus comes to town. 
The Ponck family more than 
earn their keep in downing, 
juggling and tightrope walk- 
ing; and if further distraction

Delme Quartet 
Goldsmiths’ Hall 


The Delme Quartet does not 
introduce new works from a 
sense of duty, nor do the 
members allow a missionary 
view to alienate the listener, 
one has the impression that 
they delight in sharing some- 
thing worthy, yet unfamiliar. 
The first performance of Mal- 
colm Singer's Quartet, com- 
missioned by the City Music 
Society, was a case in point 
The composer dispenses wife 
conventional sonorities and 
makes expensive use of mutes 
and harmonics. 


The technique of superim- 
posing fragmented melodic 
snatches in the highest register 
on a rhythmically insistent 
accompaniment demanded 
much of the Delme in varying 
the balance between instru- 
ments. But in terms of virtuos- 
ity their precision in the 
opening movement’s repeated 
syncopation and the “busy 
chromatic buzz” of the moto 
perpetuo-like finale fully rose 
to the pin-point detail in the 
piece's myriad idea. 

Even if fee eloquent urbani- 
ty of Haydn's G Major quar- 
tet. Op 54 No 1 was 
predictable: the delight of 
hearing four players meld as 
one never waned. They do not 


throw the music at you - one 
is invited to participate in fee 
interpretative process. 

The Delme Quartet ap- 
proached the deep lyricists of 
Sibelius's only mature Quartet 
wife a mellowness of sound 
more often associated wife a 
string orchestra. It was con- 
veyed in a quietly loving, if 
unreal, gentleness. Never was 
one aware of an individual 
playen one focussed on fee 
body of sound. Where the 
tempo moved into piu allegro 
in the finale I suspected feat 
fee standard of play might fall 
off, but it was a tribute to fee 
Delme's professional! sts that 
they were able to give full vent 
to fee enthralling bravura. 

James Methnen- 
Gampbell 


LPO/Davis 
Festival Hall 


The last time I saw Carl Davis 
in charge of an orchestra he 
bad cut up some rather re- 
vered music by Beethoven 
into small bits, pasted them 
together in a different order, 
added a liberal sprinkling of 
repeat marks, and was using 
this papier mache masterpiece 
to accompany an interminable 
silent movie called Napoleon. 

Now he has been appointed 


associate conductor of the 
London Philharmonic Or- 
chestra. One trusts that his 
new responsibilities wfl] cot 
include wielding fee scissors 
too often on Beethoven. 

This was the blandest mu- 
sic-making I have beard since 
I inadventently caught the 
James Last Orchestra on tele- 
vision. Ravers Mother Goose 
suite drifted by in an undiffer- 
entiated haze. 

The orchestral cohesion was 
more or less maintained but 
fee pace was utterly unvaried. 

He was livelier in Rimsky- 
Korsakov’s Scheherazade, not 
surprising because fee score 
has long been a happy hunting 
ground for film composers. 
Even here, though, some of 
the wind soloists indulged in a 
rhythmic licence feat stopped 
not far short of mutiny. 

StilL the evening had its 
compensations. In Mozart's 
Flute and Harp Concerto one 
could be dazzled by the harp- 
ist David Watkins's glittering, 
Liberace-styfe jacket, if not by 
his fingerwork. The flautist 
Jonathan Snowden did, how- 
ever, give a well-pointed and 
spritely performance. 

And one could always fill in 
fee LPO’s audience-research 


questionnaire to while away a 
few of Scheherazade's 1,001 


nights.

Show people; Cliff Richard, Dave Clark (Time), Elaine Page, Tin Rke, Hal Prince (Chess), Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Sarah Brigbtman (Phantom of The Opera), all helping to pack musicals into the West End 

Tills are alive to the sound of music 


T wo summers ago 
it was noted with 
some amazement 
that 13 London 
theatres, roughly 
one-third of the 
mainstream total, were staging 
musicals of one kind or anoth- 
er — an all-time high. By the 
middle of this summer that 
total may well have risexr to 
20, in wh ich foerewjQbe . 
musicals in almost half the 
theatres in toe West End 
. rather more than twice the 
number that are currently on 
Broadway, the traditional 
home ground. 

To add insult to American 
injury, of .the 10 musicals 
currently open on Broadway, 
only one is playing to capacity 
houses and that is the all- 
British Cats, while its near- 
rivals include another Lloyd 
Webber (Song and Dance) and 
the Dickensian Edwin Brood 
starring our own CJeo Laine 
and George Rose. Only one 
new American musical (Bob 
Fosse's Big Deal) has been 
announced for the current 
New York season, and hopes 
for the autumn are pinned on 
sucb London imports as Les 
Miserable s and Starlight 
Express. 

Unsurprisingly, two of 


Broadway's leading music 
men are currently in Britain: 
Hal Prince is working on 
Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of 
the Opera for the autumn, ana 
Larry Fuller is directing a&d 
choreographing the current 
Cliff Richard extravaganza. 
Time, at toe Dominion. The 
one acknowledged genius of 
the current American musical, 
Stephen SoDdbfinv has noth- 
ing on Broadway ait present, 
but Pacific Overtures is com- 
ing to Manchester next 
month, A Funny Thing Hap- 
pened on ike Way to the 
Forum is due at Chichester in 
August, and there is toe 
chance of a major London 
premiere for Follies this year. 

This transatlantic shut of 
the musical power-base has 
come swiftly and unexpected- 
ly. Ten years ago the West End 
was just another slop on the 
road tour that led out of New 
York. The idea of an interna- 
tional premiere in London 
was just about unthinkable. 

Indeed in the whole history 
of 20th-century theatre before 
Cots, less than half a dozen 
London musicals had ever 
really succeeded in New York: 
Coward's Bitter Sweet in the 
1930s, Sandy Wilson's The 
Boy Friend in the 1950s, Bart’s

This week’s opening of Time, albeit to cool reviews, brings yet another 
musical to the West End, which is now staging more than Broadway. 
With others on the way, Sheridan Morley asks where the genre is heading 


Oliver and the New- 
iry/Bricusse Stop the World in 
the 1960$, and that was about 
it. In toe last decade or so, 
Lloyd Webber- alone has 
achieved that many hits on 
Broadway (Cats, Evita, Jesus 
Christ Superstar and Joseph), 
while for many other manage- 
ments the West End rattier 
than the West Side has be- 
come toe place to start a big- 
band show. 

Not only do we now have 
the choreographic and back- 
stage talent that was once a 
unique property of New York, 
we also have more sensible 
balance sheets. Currently the 
two big London musicals in 
rehearsal, Time and Chess, are 
said to be in budget trouble for 
each exceeding estimates of 
about £2 million. Looking on 
the dark side of these balance 
sheets, let os assume they 
finally get toe curtain up for 
£3m each. A lot of money by 
London standards, perhaps; 
yet to get the curtain up on the 
Broadway first night of La 
CageAux FoUes (due into the 
Palladium next week) in Au- 1 
gust 1983, the management 
were looking at $6 million. 

True, that management was 
also able to start charging $47 
a ticket on a Saturday night in 
New York, against a £15 top 
here; but London can still 
prove surprisingly economic 
in its backstage budgeting. 

Recently toe impresario 
Cameron Mackintosh (co-pro- 
ducer with the RSC of Les 
Miserables, co-producer with 
Lloyd Webber of Cats and the 
only West End manager to 
specialize in musicals) re- 
leased his Cats accounts for 
one week of last year. 

hat those ac- 
counts re- 
vealed was 
that, on av- 
erage, Cats 
at the New 
London in Drury Lane takes 
just over £100,000 a week at 
the box-office on an original 
investment of just £500,000, a 
West End record in 1981. Of 
that £100.000, cast salaries 
take about a fifth, the theatre 
rental is £1,600, and other 
costs (publicity, theatre staff- 
ing, wardrobe replacement, 
insurance) account for about 
£15,000. Then there are 
£1,500 royalties to Lloyd 
Webber and the T.S. Etiot 
estate, taking total miming 
costs to about £70,000 a week. 

Cats therefore shows a clear 
profit of just over £30,000 a 
week for its investors. By the 
middle of last year, four years 
into its run, it was showing an 
overall profit of some £4 
million. 

Cats on its present world- 
wide record will prove toe 
most successful musical of toe 
1980s. The fed that it was 
totally created in this country 
has focused more than any- 
thing else toe eyes and ears of 
musical producers bn 'the 
West End. But looking down 
what would appear to be a 
thriving catalogue of shows 
old and new, certain, warning 
bells ring. 

First of all, toe 20 musicals 
currently, or .soon, to be, on 
offer break down info certain 


w 


ail-ioo-familiar categories. 
There are the rock and pop 
necrophilia shows ( Judy about 
Garland, Lennon about John, 
Are You Lonesome Tonight ? 
about Elvis). Then there are 
Lloyd Webber's “events", 
Cats and Starlight , neither of 
which have recognizabte 
books of any kind. Then there 
are toe Amadeus off-shoots — 
lives of the great composers — 
in After Aida and CafePucd- 
nL There are the movie musi- 
cals, 42nd Street , Seven Brides 
for Seven Brothers and Gigi, 
and toe Broadway revivals 
(Guys and Dolls and Barman) 
and the West End revival of 
the Lambeth Walk singalong 
(Me and My Girl, due for 
Broadway this summer). 

It may be too early for an 
accurate definition of 77m* or 
Chess, though it is surely fair 
to suggest that toe advance 
publicity has sold toe former 
on its spectacle and toe latter 
on its already chart-topping 
score. Neither is being sold as 
a "book" show, in which plot 
is of much importance. 

What we seem to have, 
therefore, are golden oldies or 
new spectaculars. The one 
great star of the West End 
musical of toe 1980s in my 
view is John Napier, the 
designer of Cats and Starlight 
and Les Mishrabtes, the man 
who is now building Time at 


the Dominion and will then 
move Phantom at Her 
Majesty’s. 

But this, even at its most 
brilliant, is essentially 
Disneyland Theatre. It has 
nothing to do with narrative 
content and it is here that the 
British musical is now most 
vulnerable. Hit shows at the 
moment aren’t actually about 
anything very much. 

The need to limit toe finan- 
cial risk by pre-selling shows 
on disc, the need to make 
them immediately acceptable 
to tourist audiences who may 
well not have English as a first 
language, has led to a level- 
ling-off of storybnes. At pre- 
cisely the moment when good 
classical directors are coming 
into musicals (T revor Nunn of 
the RSC currently has Cats 
and Les Miserables and the 
more debatable Starlight to 
his credit, as well as a planned 
Porgy and Bess at Glynde- 
bouroe and Chess) scripts 
have reached an all-time low. 

Only in the great and good 
Les Miserables, which opened 
to a shamefully grudging Press 
in this country, and in the 
National's bland revival of 
Threepenny Opera, will you 
currently find a London musi- 
cal with any claim to social 
commentary, and by no small 
coincidence one comes from a 
century-old Victor Hugo clas-

sic and the other from toe 
first-ever musical. John Gay’s 
Beggar's Opera, by way of 
Brecht and Weill half a centu- 
ry ago. 

One of the reasons why 
even in toe current musical 
boom we have seen barely half 
of Sondheim's shows over 
here (and not one of the scores 
he has written since Sweeney 
Todd in 1979 ) is that toe idea 
of a thoughtful musical still 
frightens backers and audi- 
ences alike. 

Far and away the best 
English musicals of the 1 980s, 
Willy Russell’s Blood Brothers 
and Howard Goodall's The 
Hired Man, never made real 
money at London box-offices 
precisely because they con- 
tained no international pop- 
rock hits, no scenery that 
convened into spaceships, no 
bland biographies of dead 
stars. Nor were they especially 
up-tempo. Instead they were 
thoughtful, intelligenu some- 
times despairing looks at the 
state of the nation past and 
presenL 

B ut somewhere be- 
tween Disneyland 
and the Eurovision 
Song Contest, be- 
tween lavish spec- 
tacle and already- 
familiar pop hits, there has to 
be a future for the genuinely 
new musical, even if we can 
only now expect them at toe 
rate of about one a year. 

Jn all fairness it was Webber 
(whose now-public musical 
production company has ac- 
quired a stock market valua- 
tion of over £35 million since 
it was floated last January) 
who used the profits of such 
events as Starlight to finance 
The Hired Man, and when 
they come to write the history 
of toe musical theatre there 
will not be much doubt that 
the most profitable of those 
two shows did at least pay for 
toe most important of them. 

Yet despite the changes and 
the many advances that have 
overtaken the general state of 
the British stage musical in toe 
last 10 years, there remains 
one central difference between 
the perception of toe song- 
and-dance show in the West 
End and its perception on 
Broadway, a difference which 
explains most of the others. 

On Broadway, in the midst 
of this immensely lacklustre 
season, I was solemnly told 
that "one big musical could 
turn this whole thing around.” 
A musical hit there changes 
the whole face of toe Ameri- 
can theatre. Over here, there 
is no way that a single musical 
hit can turn around a bad 
season: we just don't credit the 
genre wilh that much 
importance. 

When Trevor Nunn took a 
sabbatical from the RSC to 
direct Cats, which will proba- 
bly prove to have been toe 
greatest theatrical success of 
his entire working life and 
certainly toe most profitable, 
he was vaguely regarded as on 
vacation from his "real'’ work 
at Stratford. 

If this isa time to celebrate a 
new-found confidence in Lon- 
don musicals, it is also a time 
to recognize the limitations; 


were it not tor Kice and Lloyd 
Webber (neither of them infal- 
lible. as Jeeves and Blonde! 
established) we would be 
hard-pressed to talk of a 
native revival at alL 

Musicals always thrive in 
thin times. What was true for 
Busby Berkeley in the Holly- 
wood 1930s has been proved 
true again as 42 nd Street 
comes bade to us 50 years 
later. An audience that has 
trouble finding toe money for 
its tickets nevertheless likes to 
see where that money has 
gone, and huge sets or lavish 
costumes fulfil an escapist 
need. They also pose no real 
challenge. 

In reaction to the sheer gloss 
of such Broadway and Holly- 
wood nostalgia, the best musi- 
cals of our time live on the 


razor's edge, which is where 
you'll find Jurnwy Todd and 
Blood Brothers and Les 
Mis'erables. In them may well 
lie toe survival of the form as 
anything but mindless, it 
might be better to end up with 
a slit throat from Sweeney 
than a broken neck from 
looking too far back over your 
shoulder at Rodgers and 
Hammerstein. But I could still 
be willing to take bets on an 
Ivor Novello Festival at Drury 
Lane before the decade is oul 


Sheridan Money's Spread A 
Lime Happiness, a history of 
the 20th-century London stage 
musical from Chu Om Chow 
to Cness, will be published by 
Thames and Hudson in 
October..

( Edited by Shona Crawford Poole TRAVEL . _ — — - — 

Curtain raisers: in Albania, Christopher Portway discovers a few chinks in the armour-plate of an otherwise grim society* 



waves 


iron fists 




I t was 15 years since I last 
visited Albania and from the 
start of the latest tour J 
became aware of improved 
conditions: there was less menace 
in the short walk we had to make, 
unescorted. across the no man's 
land between the Yugoslav and 
Albanian customs; everything was 
more relaxed, the tommy-gun 
toting Albanian sentry offering a 
shy smile and half-hearted 
denched-fist salute at our ap- 
proach. Bibles and religious litera- 
ture remained a forbidden import 
but my newspaper, after perusal of 
its pages, was relumed to me. 

The first of a great multitude of 
the late Comrade President Enver 
Hoxha’s utterances thrust itself at 
us. “Even if we have to go without 
bread, we Albanians do not violate 
principles. We do not betray 
Marxist-Leninism”. His dour 
words offer the key to any form of 
understanding of modern-day 
Albania. 

The authorities profess a dis- 
dain for hard currency — although 
thev admit to its usefulness — so 
Aibturist. the state tourist organi- 
zation. does not go in for conven- 
tional money-making activities. 
Instead, it concentrates on dis- 
pensing education: it takes its 
clients in well-chaperoned groups 
around the country showing them 
factories, schools and collective 
farms, all the while offering a 
commentary upon the life of bliss 
lived by Albanians. 

Aibturist hotels - proliferating 
and improved but still below the 
standards which the rest of eastern 
Europe can maintain — dispense 
the minimum of comfort plus 
meals of basically good food l the 
vegetables are very good) which 
are ruined by indi fferent service, 
unattractive presentation and a 


distressing inability to keep hot 
food hot- The fruity red wine IS 
drinkable: the beer weak and 
scented. Bui together with roki 
and an excruciating brandy, all are 
remarkably cheap. 

The visitor wishing to make 
contact with the ordinary Albani- 
an has a daunting task. This is not 
caused by the language barrier 
alone — there is another, more 
disturbing hurdle: Albania, togeth- 
er with neighbouring Greece, has 
undergone an unenviable history 
of invasion, conquest and subju- 
gation by Romans, Illyrians. 
Turks, Italians, Germans and 
others. 

This, coupled with her savage 
application of unadulterated 
Marxist-Leninism which has lost 
her the friendship of allied Com- 
munist nations such as Yugosla- 
via. the Soviet Union and China, 
gives Albania a reason to apply her 
isolationist policies to a fanatical 
degree. 

From the age of three children 
are taught to be “vigilant for the 


enemy within and without" so 
that they grow up behind a shield 
of suspicion that is not easy to 
penetrate. This fear of infiltration 
or invasion is intentionally carried 
to a ludicrous extreme. The coun- 
try is, literally, an armed camp. 
The terrain bristles with concrete 
bunkers, out-of-date anti-aircraft 
guns crown many a hilltop, artil- 
lery emplacements cover the 
beaches and. in unison with the 
endless rhetoric and glorification 
of Enver Hoxha, the repetitive 
dogma urging vigilance and 
watchfulness drips from every 
wail and banner in the land.

Always on die look-oat: the 18th-century Turkish watchtower on the shares of Lake Batrint in southern Albania 


A Fiat coach was our 
vehicle for the 1 1 -day 
tour of the country, a 
tour on roads little im- 
proved over the years. Albanians 
are not permitted to own a car so 
traffic is limited to slow-moving 
lorries, clapped-out buses and 
bullock carts and, in the towns, a 
surfeit of people. A visitor is 
immediately struck by the volume 
of idling crowds everywhere. The 
boast of no unemployment may or 
may not be true, but assuredly 
there is a great deal of visible 
loafing and massive overmanning 

I travelled with Regent Holi- 
days who run three tours and one 
static sojourn (based in Tirane) 
each year. The tours cover much 
of the country with one and two- 
night stop-overs in Shkoder, Dur- 
res, Sarande. Korce. Berat and 
Tirane. plus the first and last night 
in Yugoslavia's Titograd. Shko- 
der. in the north, is the introduc- 
tion; apart from the ruins of its 
Illyrian Rosafat Castle and the 
elegant Venetian bridge of Mes 
over the Kir Skm river, there is 
little to observe of sightseeing 



... 

^|pg| | 


Rooms with a view: from Batrint, 
across the Adriatic, lies Corfu 


quality so the programme is filled 
out by visits to a cable factory (not 
to be recommended to British 
factory safety inspectors) and a 
kindergarten in which it will be 
noted that the first line oh page 
one of a tot's English exercise book 
reads “This is a rifle". 

The capital Tirane, has expand- 
ed since I was last there and its 
huge Scanderbeg Square is now 
lined by the National Bank, 
National Museum, the Soviet- 
built Palace of Culture, the old 
Ethem Bey Mosque (now firmly a 
museum), and the 15-storey Tira- 
ne Hotel, renowned as the most 
comfortable lodging in Albania. 

All there is to see in Tirane can 
be viewed from the square and 
New Albania Boulevard, so I took 
myself off by train into the 
countryside since, unlike 15 years 
ago. nobody had actually told me 
that lone excursions were forbid- 
den. In 1970. when I was based at 
Durres. I had covered the whole of 
the Albanian rail network over 
several days without trouble, but 
this time I returned to an official 
reprimand — though too late to be 
denied an enjoyable five-mile 


walk across the valley below Kruje 
in the company of the friendliest 
of Albanian villagers. 

For me the far south is the most 
attractive region of the country. 
Gjirocaster is a beautifully pre- 
served old town where many of 
the medieval houses retain their 
original stone. The fortress has 
been transformed into a museum 
of weapons and the house — much 
rejuvenated — where Hoxha was 
bom is a place of pilgrimage. 

S arande, fating Corfu across 
the straits, has the air of a 
french Riviera resort ex- 
cept for the empty shops, 
screaming red hoardings and po- 
lice patrol boats scurrying across 
the bay. Just half an hour away, 
close to the Greek border, is 
Butrint, an extensive site of 
Illyrian, Greek and Roman relics 
and well worth seeing. 

To the north, at Apollonia. there 
is another ancient site which 
includes a Greek temple that 
holds, surprisingly for an inexora- 
bly atheist state, a number of 
beautiful portraits of Christ. Berat 
contains some handsome streets 


of 19th-century houses in its old 
quarter, dominated by castle ru- 
ins, but Korce. so far as I could 
see. offers little so Aibturist fells 
bade on more industrial visits 
here. 

The tour takes in Pgoradec on 
-Lake Ohrid, shared with .Yugosla- 
via. and EJbasan where, hidden 
behind old walls, decorous houses 
and old locked churches can be 
found. Children, happily defying 
authority by repeatedly crossing 
themselves, insisted upon leading 
us to the churches for the reward 
of chewing-gum or ballpoint pens. 

. Tbe road to Durres crosses the 
dramatic Krrabd Pass, giving 
views of the lake and a reputedly 
redundant steelworks, and at Dur- 
res you have the sea again. Tbe 
Italian-built Adriadk Hotel stands 
on the best beach on the Dalma- 
tian coast. two miles from tbe 
town. Again, there is little to see 
there. So, the eroded Roman 
amphitheatre "done". Aibturist 
found an excuse to take us to 
another school, this time to hear 
teenagers trill gushing odes to the 
only God they know — Enver 
Hoxha.

.and in Hungary, not even notorious Capitalist Bandit Bernard Levin is an Unperson 


Budapest is a city of- but 
what have we here? Can it be 
vue that Levin, notorious 
Enemy of the People and 
Capitalist Bandit, has been 
altoiyed into even the most 
relaxed dominion of the Sovi- 
et Empire? He has; more to' 

Point, perhaps, he has 
been allowed out again, and a 
fascinating time he lad. too, 
as you shall bear. 

Budapest, then, is a city of 
panoramas, made up mainly 
of hills and water, it has some, 
of the most beautiful urban 
views in all Europe. Buda and 
Pest (the only way for a visitor 
to remember which is which is 
by the use of a mnemonic — 
Buda is over here, and Pest 
over there, and vice versa) are 
separated by the Danube, 
which flows with a majestic, 
unhurried stateliness beneath 
the splendid bridges, though it 
is no bluer here than in 
Vienna. 

. From the Buda (or Pest) 
side -the view across the river 
is dominated by the lovingly 
restored Royal Palace; from 
Pest (or Buda) the view is 
anchored by the noble Parlia- 
ment building. (“Our Parlia- 

Foreign visitors

entire population

they said, and I was about to 
sway when they added dial 
they meant the neo-Gothic 
architecture. But they didn't 
seem to mind discussing, the 
contents as well; the Workers’ 
Party, they explained, was the 
only one. Fancy!) 

There are some marvellous 
buildings: the Matthias 
Church, a rare example of 
painted Gothic; the massive 
Castle complex; the Citadel, 
which crowns Geflert Hill and 
offers a view of the whole city; 
the handsome new airport, 
rife with marble; the neo- 
Renaissance Opera House, its 
interior lavishly and beautiful- 
ly painted; Gundefs Restau- 
rant, in charming Art 
Nouveau; the National Gal- 
lery, which has some of the 
most implausibly attributed

bad pictures I have ever 
the Hilton Hotel, which incor- 
porates, 'sensitively arid strik- 
ingly, parts of a 13th-century 
abbey and the facade of a 
1 7tb-century Jesuit college. 

Hungary, which is desperate, 
for hard currency, 'long ago 
decided that tourism must be 
encouraged; so, however, did 
Bulgaria, add even Arthur 
Scargill found that place foil- 
ing rather short of a Socialist 
paradise. The Hungarians re-, 
alized that western visitors 
will not come in their' num- 
bers if inefficiency reigns, and 
by hard woric and forming out 
much of the botel-buflding to 
western concerns (as wefl as, 1 
i m agi n e, . the staff training) 
.they have achieved a status 
unique in the eastern bloc 
practically everything works. 

The consequence is that 
foreign visitors to Hungary 
every year greatly outnumber 
the entire population of the 
“country, and the influx is still 
growing. But the Hungarians 
also realized that western 
visitors will not come in 
crowds if there are too many 
visible signs that it is not a free 
country. The hideous Soviet 
“Liberation” memorial has no 
soldiers at nil guarding, it, let 
alone. Russian ones, and this 
may stand as a symbol of the . 
easier atmosphere of Hungary, 
even though — which they do 
not tell you — an enormous 
proportion of the Hungarian 
armed forces is officered by 
Russians. 

Foreign newspapers, other 
than Communist ones, of 
course, are not available in 
ordinary shops and news- 
stands, but they are to be 
found in the hotels patronized 
by westerners, and in mine 
there were The Times, be 
Monde,' the Frankfurter 
AUgemeine and La Stampa, as 
well as the Herald-Tribune 
(and Izvestia, for which sales 
did not seem to be brisk); 
there was nothing I could see 
to stop a Hungarian dozen 
going into one of the bold 
kiosks and buying such forbid- 
den fruit, though no doubt if 
he did it every day for a 
fortnight somebody would 
make a telephone call to 
somebody else. And there is 
other evidence that the Hun-

Underneath the arches: the Sz£cbeny chain bridge, one of many crossing the Danube 



garians have managed to 
carve out a fife better and less 
trammelled than their 
neighbours. 

They can travel on holiday 
to the west, for instance, and 
although 1 take it that permis- 
sion would not be granted to 
an active or suspect dissident, 
the rest seem to have no 
trouble; they can only do it for 
a month, and even then only 
once every three years, but 
that seems to be more the 
result of the currency problem 
than the political situation. 
More significant still. Hunga- 
ry does not seem to have 
created a category of Unper- 
sons. Those who have left and 
refused to return are, after a 
few years, safe to visit their 
native land and leave again, 
and those who might be 
thought to bring credit on 
Hungary by their achieve- 
ments are freely and warmly 
discussed, unlike what hap- 
pens elsewhere in the shadow 
of Moscow. 


There is, for instance, an 
official newspaper for visitors, 
published in English and Ger- 
man, full of what you might 
expect from the information 
department of a Communist 
state; but it had a very 
us article about Gyorgy 
one of the many 


Even toe events 
of 1956 can 
be discussed 


Hungarian musicians living 
abroad, and Tamas Vasary, 
who is another of them, was 
actually playing a recital while 
I was there. 1 even ran into a 
member of the BBC Hungar- 
ian Service; he had left at the 
time of the Revolution, but 
was in Budapest on holiday. 
And Hungarians expressed 
pride as well as amazement at 
foe feet that two Hungarian 
economists had become En- 
glish Lords. (I forbore to 
explain about Balogh and 
Kaktor; it is not after all, the 
duty of a guest to disillusion 
his hosts.) 


They talk quite freely, too, 
without going so for as to 
criticize 


Even the events of 1 956 can be 
discussed, though the word 
revolution is not used; the 
30th anniversary of that hero- 
ic uprising is now only a few 
months away. (Driving about 
the city, I thought 1 was told 
that the handsome statue I 
was passing was that of 
Rakosj, and I goggled in 
disbelief until 1 discovered 
that this one spelt it Rakoczi; 
he was the notable 18th- 
century patriot who gave his 
name to the Rakoczi March.) 
There is a Lenin Boulevard, of 
course, but even in such 
matters they are as discreet as 
they are allowed to be, I 
wondered at first what the 
“Street of November 
Seventh” was, until I realized 
it was the Russian Revolution 
in disguise 

Materially, too, the Hungar- 
ians seem better off than their 
fellow-members of the club. 
Clothes were mostly in the 
style of 1 950s Woolworths. 
but they seemed well-made 
and warm, and 1 found, 
wandering about the depart- 
ment stores, that there was a 
considerable variety. Certain- 
ly there were no queues at 


food shops, which were well 
stocked, and no beggars, un- 
less you count the waiter in a 
fashionable restaurant who, 
presenting a bill dearly 
marked Service Included 
asked “Did you enjoy the 
service, sir?” 

Standards oftiving are rela- 
tive. of course; the Hungarian 
one is for below ours. But that 
cruel fan offers another incen- 
tive to visitors from the west: 
Hungary is almost incredibly 
cheap. And that “incredibly” 
is not just the usual clicht; I 
kept disbelieving bills which 
were a fifth the size of what 
they would have been in 
London, and I had trouble 
with the subway because 1 
couldn't lay my hands on a 
coin of a value small enough 
for the turnstile to take iL (I 
collect subways; but a taxi-ride 
clear across the city cost only 
one pound) 

Thus encouraged I bought 
armfuls of gramophone 
records, which brings me to 
the reason why I went to 
Hungary in the first place. I 
was invited by the Director of 
the Budapest Festival to come 
and sample it; again, the

currency situation is against 
them for they cannot afford, 
say. international opera stars, 
and the cast of the perfor- 1 
mance I heard of A Nurnbergi 
Mesierdatnokok was entirely 
local and sang in the vernacu- 
lar. (A Hungarian Mastersing- 
ers is nothing to me; I have 
heard Carmen in Russian. 
Cost in French. Boris Godunov 
in English (“Oh. what a stroke 
of luck, I have caught a 
duck”), the Barber of Seville in 
Japanese, 7/ troratore in He- 
brew, and Tannhduser in 
Slough.) 

Still, it was a creditable 
effort, with an excellent Sachs, 
younger than usual, a fine 
lyrical Waliher, and one strik- 
ing idea, new to me: at curtain- 
rise on the first act. the 
congregation is seated feeing 
down stage so that the audi- 
ence is, so to speak, behind the 
altar. It worked very well. 

The Vasary recital was ex- 
citing; some uncertain Beetho- 
ven to start with, but dazzling 
Chopin and Liszt to follow, 
and as many encores as Ru- 
binstein used to give. Antal 
Dorati, another exile who 
freely goes back and forth, 
conducted the Budapest Sym- 
phony Orchestra — a surpris- 
ingly polished ensemble — in. 
among other things, his own 
piano concerto. (Why do so 
many outstanding conductors 
— Furtwangler and Klemper- 
er were two more — try to 
write music as well as perform 
it? It is always terrible.) But 
Liszt’s Dame Symphony came 
up as fresh as the day it was 
written; it is good to hear these 
old war-horses go through 


Standards of 
living are 
far below oars 

their paces. The main concert 
hall, recently built, is rather 
austere (apart from tbe frieze 
behind the platform, which is 
positively uglier than the one 
at the Barbican), but with a 
brilliantly clean acoustic; 1 
would like to hear some 
Mozart there. 

An enjoyable visit, but with 
a reminder, at beginning and 
end, of the difference between 
one kind of country and 
another. Although Hungary's 
rating in Charles Humana's 
now indispensable World Hu- 
man Rights Guide is far higher 
than any other Soviet-bloc 
country, it wouldn't suit you 
and me at alL 1 assure you. 

Tbe day before I arrived was 
the anniversary of Kossuth's 
Declaration of Independence 
from the Austrians, and a 
group of young people staged a 
demonstration in front of his 
statue; thoughts of indepen- 
dence, however, are not to be 
allowed, even in Hungary, and 
the demonstration was broken 
up with considerable force. 

And as 1 went through the 
passport-check on the way 
out, I discovered that this was 
the only country I have ever 
been in where the passport 
photograph is compared, very 
long and very carefully, with 
the face presenting it, and 
where, even after the traveller 
has passed tbe test, be has to 
undergo a further passport 
check by soldiers at the flight- 
gate. Hungarians are indeed 
allowed to travel to the west; 
but he would be a very bold or 
a very foolish Hungarian who 
tried to do so without first 
asking official permission. 

The espresso coffee, inci- 
dentally. is the best in the 
world outside Italy. And Cals 
is sold out. 



Just the diet the 
doctor ordered 


W hether to lose weight, 
improve your health, 
perk up the taste- 
buds, win a bet, or to lower the 
cholesterol level in the blood, 
a new dietary regime is highly 
recommended. 

Wary of the likes of avoca- 
dos, shrimps, prawns, 
taramasalata. sausages and 
cheese, 1 set off to discover 
some of the healthier ways of 
eating oul 

One of the most substantial, 
cholesterol-lowering foods is 
pasta: the recent fresh pasta 
boom might have more sub- 
stance to it than I'd imagined. 

One of the best indications 
of this, precisely because it is 
so unpretentious, isSolopasta. 
a homely, formica-tabled Ital- 
ian restaurant and shop in 
north London which makes its 
own high quality pasta and 
sauces. 

Five basic types are offered 
on the menu (more are avail- 
able to take away) ranging 
from egg or spinach-based 
tagliatelle, to spaghetti basil- 
icati (flecked with basil in the 
making of the dough). There 
are also the more familiar 
lasagne and cannelloni. 

Up to seven sauces are 
available, with the regular and 
siciliana enlivened by the likes 
of pesto genovese, a delicious 
light sauce flavoured with 
fresh basil, pine nuts and 
garlic. You can come away 
feeling well fed and virtuous 
for around £5 to £6 a head. 

J apanese food always at- 
tracts attention when 
healthier diets are under 
discussion, although the bene- 
fits of raw fish, noodles, 
lightly-fried seafood and vege- 
tables can often come expen- 
sive. 

The small, rather spartan 
Gombei restaurant is. howev- 
er, one of the cheaper species 
of Japanese establishraenL 
The tiny four to five-seaier 
sushi-bar has all the usual 
range of raw fishes available 
from salmon to tuna and 
mackerel, and the cholesterol- 
conscious should be able to 
steer a relatively safe and 
certainly appetizing journey 
through yakizakana (crisply 
grilled mackerel with mashed 
horse-radish), delicious miso 
soup (with spring onions and 
soya bean curd), skewers of 
lean chicken yakitori or a fish 
and meat casserole, yosenabe. 

The attractive tempura, de- 
spite the lightness of the 
tetter, was probably forbid- 
den as three giant prawns are 
the centre-piece. Butihe boiled 
octopus in vinegar, had a 
marvellous smoky flavour. 


Another reliable route to 
dietary fulfilment is provided 
by the vegetarian regimes of 
southern India. Once the un- 
fashionable and downbeat re- 
lations of Indian restaurants. 
Asian vegetarian establish- 
ments draw an increasingly 
“aware” clientele. The Rani, 
established for over a year 
now, steers clear of earnest- 
ness but offers a cheerful and 
attractive menu of Gujarati 
dishes. 

The small range of dishes 
offers a wide scope of flavours, 
from potato and vegetable- 
filled pancakes (masala dosa) 
and black-eyed bean curry, to 
spicy dhai vada (black lentil 
fritters with yoghurt sauce). 

The set meals (thalis). rang- 
ing from £4.20 to £8 a head for 
the massive “Rani Super 
Table”, are probably the best 
way of ordering a balanced 
programme of dishes. 

I f an Indian vegetarian 
meal seems unappetizing 
you might treat your taste- 
buds to the exotic “menu 
potager” at the smart French 
restaurant Inigo Jones. 

Paul Gayler, the English 
chef, is famous for his inven- 
tiveness, and his five-course 
vegetarian extravaganza at 
£22.50 a head is a rare attempt 
by a chef of such quality to get 
to grips with meat-ftee 
disciplines. 

The colourful parade of 
celeriac mousse, flecked with 
chives and served with dabs of 
cold beetroot sauce, vegetable- 
stuffed raviolis and a feuillete 
of broccoli, com, oyster mush- 
rooms and quails' eggs are so 
lightly sauced that they should 
be a dietician's delighL 
The final courses of hot 
goat's cheese topped with a 
puree of olives and a pineap- 
ple and yoghurt tenine with a 
rich Campari sauce, might not 
do anything for cholesterol 
levels but, by golly, they taste 
good.

The Swift 
route 
to revenge 

Anatoly Karpov has brushed 
aside any suspicion that he 
might still be jaded or off 
form after his loss of the title 
to Kasparov. True, the ex- 
champion’s performances in 
the Lucerne World Teams in 
November and the Vienna 
Master Swiss in January were 
respectable rather than in- 
spired, but in neither event 
did he lose any games. 

Now in the SWIFT Inter- 
national in Brussels, Karpov 
has dominated a field which 
includes his old rival, 
Korchnoi, plus such danger- 
ous younger opponents as 
Tim man, Ljubojevic and 
Miles. Particularly impressive 
were Karpov's 105 marathon 
victory against Jan Timman 
and his dramatic demolition 
of the top .Yugoslav, 
Ljubojevic. Karpov’s overall 
performance must give him 
grounds for optimism.

Karpov has a tremendous 
record against this line of the 
Tarrasch variation. The rea- 
son, of course, is that Black's 
third move invites White to 
seize vast tracts of central 
terrain. Black then hopes to 
puncture this extended struc- 
ture, but Karpov is an adept 
at maintaining a space ad- 
vantage and ducking the 
coumerolay. Korchnoi has 
been highly successful at 
obtaining draws against 
Karpov with the more fluid

Distance: 9 ml 
For most of its 
length, Offe's Dyke, 
divided Mercia (middle 
England) from the Welsh 
princedoms on a fiurly 
straight, fairly north-sooth 
line. Above Kington, howev- ‘

which swings through 90° to 
give command over the Vale 
iff Radnor and its principal 
debouchment into Mercia. 

Come oat of Kington on 
the Offa’s Dyke Path going 
north (from the town centre 
make for the chnrch and 
follow the acorn signs off to

cross the A44 at Dmrfield

BRIDGE 


Secrets of the grand slam 


The excitement of slam 
bidding, initially responsible 
for Contract Bridge displac- 
ing Auction, remains one of 
the main attractions of the 
game. Slam Bidding by Hugh 
Kelsey (Victor Gollancz, 
£4.95 paperback) is a revised 
edition of a work originally 
published in 1973. The au- 
thor states that “there has 
been no technical revolution 
in recent years”. This is true 
of the weapons used at the 
summit. There has been no 
significant addition to the 
armoury of asking bids, cue 
bids aad control finding 
conventions. 

But there has been a 
considerable change in the 
methods employed at the 
foothills. In the 1960s, it was 
common practice to jeer at 
the Americans for foiling to 
force on good hands. Today, 
as Kelsey points out, some 
powerful hands require bid- 
ding space to develop. He 
cites this example: 

*AK9B5 
. 0 A 4 103 

* A85 

If partner opens one spade, 
the best final strain is 
uncertain. Partner must wait 
to learn that you have a good 
hand until a fit is established. 
It is a pity that in the revised 
edition the author did not 
take the opportunity of de- 
scribing the greater accuracy 
conveyed by transfer bids, 
especially after no trump' 


With this exception, 
lam madingisa comprehen- 
sive and lucidly presented 
account of the subject 
The Rixi Markus Bade of 
Bridge (Willow Books, £9.95) 
is a most handsome publica- 
tion. Rixi 1ms contributed a 
column to her newspaper for 
more than 30 years. Openly 
impatient of conventions, she 
is almost as well known for 
her trenchant views as for her 
aggressive bidding. I remem- 
ber. one of her admirers once 
saying, “That's the sort of 
player I like, cafls a spade 
two spades”. 

Here is a hand that Rixi 
played in a tournament in 
1981.

IN THE GARDEN 


Colour all the year round 


How careful use 
of shrubs and 
• trees can keep 
gardens blooming 

The deter mined gardener can 
always find something to 
bring indoors and brighten up 
the house. I know of one 
couple who manage to keep a 
vase filled with colour from 
the garden a full twelve 
months of the year. This 
should be within the range 
even of those with small 

Lonicera fiagrantissima is a 
semi-evergreen whose creamy 
while scented flowers appear 
from the axils of the leaves; 
Daphne mezereum is rather 
more compactwith rich pink 
scented flowers near the tips of 
the shoots. Also invaluable for 
indoor display. Hamamdis 
mollis pallida is a big shrub 
with ascending branches 
wreathed in pale yellow scent- 
ed blooms with unusual strap- 
shaped petals. 

Attaining a height of up to 
40ft, Arbutus andrachne, one 
of the strawberry trees, bears 
both bell-shaped flowers and 
orange fruits at the same time. 
Much smaller and a good lawn 
specimen is Prumis cerasUera 
Trail blazer, whose blushing 
pinky-white flowers are set off 
by rich plum purple foliage. 

Magnolia siellata comes 
into flower about now, a small 
tree usually covered with 


JB FMd 



Magnolia Stella ta, left, and Pnmas ceratifera 


masses of white star-like flow- 
ers on leafless branches. This 
magnolia is quite compact in 
growth; Farrotia persica is 
larger with rather untidy 
branch work. Parrotia needs to 
be sited so the branches grow 
overa garden seat or walkway, 
as its red flowers, which are 
really bunches of stamens, 
free downward and are not 
easily seen. 

Camellia jappnica is a fine 
evergreen which produces 
masses of flowers at this time 
of year, ranging through pinks 
and reds. One of the finest of 
the camellias, and a must for 
lime-free soils, is C x 
WiUiamsii J C Williams 
whose single pink flowers can 
completely cover the bush. 

An herbaceous plant popular 
with floral artists for its 


creamy white blooms is Bego- 
nia hybrid siiverUchL 

Also currently in flower are 
the low grow™ purple and 
red aubretias. Finally, Narcis- 
sus buibicodhun , the Hoop 
Petticoat narcissus, provides 
yellow flowers on 6in stems to 
complete the picture.

Don’t take too big a byte 

The Amsti ad-Sinclair link will open new vistas for computer buffs. Meanwhile, Beryl Downing explains the basics 


con| P** er ouirriase between Amstrad and 
I * chapter forth* electronics industry 

{JJJJ®?® 0 * a whole new book for the personal computer 

Themarket has declined since its peak in 1983. 
■ Computers at home had been nsedmainiy for playing 


games and owners were tiring of their new toys. But 
since the introduction of Amstrad's all-in package — 
computer, screen and printer for £399 — they are now 
being used more productively, mainly as word 
processors. 

But how and what to choose? When you are 


str u g glin g with a new language there is no point in 
asking advice from the natives — they always speak 
too fast for yooto understand their directions. So here 
is my fool’s guide to computers to help yon to decide 
whether to_ buy now or to wait until the Ams- 
trad/Siudair marriage has produced offspring. 


WHAT NEXT? 




* 


The PC (personal computer) 
consists of a typewriter-style 
keyboard, tv-type screen 
(monitor), disc drive and 
printer. All these components 
can be bought individually. 
The keyboard can be linked to 
a small portable-television but 
. t this will not give such clear 
resolution as a purpose-made 
monitor. If you buiW up your 
own system you will also need 
a word processor programme. 
This is built-in to packaged 
systems. 

Other terms you wiS need 
to know include: • 

Byte: Measurement of memo- 
ry. 1 Kilobyte (IK) stores 
1.000 characters' of informa- 
tion — letiersi figures, punctu- 
ation. 1,000K=1 megabyte. 
The more Ks the better. - 

Display: The text the comput- 
er puts on the screen. 

Floppy Disc Tape which 
receives and stores messages 
from the computer. 

* Hardware: The computer and 

- the mechanical equipment 

connected to it 

Interface: Additional bard- 
: ware or software needed to 

i make the computer work with 

i other hardware. 

i Resolution: How dear the 

$ display is on the screen. 

Software: Programmes on 
*■ floppy or hard disc. 


What do you want to do? Most 
home users (other than gam«s 
players) use a computer for 
word processing — writing let- 
ters and other texts. A 
computer will also handle 
household accounts, file ad- 
dresses and keep records. 
Small businesses can use h for 
stock control and financial 

p lanning 

Consider whether it might 
be an asset to cany your 
computer about if so. wait 
for more advanced models to 
appear. 

Is it compatible? Some com- 
puters will only work with 
their particular manu- 
fecturers’ extras. This is vitafiy 
important - if -you 1 have ~to 
connect with ' a ' company's 
main computer. ■ Otherwise 
make sure that the pro- 
grammes available are what 
yon need. 

Do youTfike the keyboard? 
Make sore that it is sturdy and 
comfortable. If you use a 
typewriter as well, see that 
things like the shift key are 
where you expect 

Is- the handbook compre- 
hensible? The Apple Macin- 
tosh is excellent — you can 
teach yourself from it The 
Amstrad is so badly arranged 
that users are having to go on 
courses costing £200 before 
they can cope. Amstrad please 
note: all handbooks need an 
index. 


Personal computers capable of 
performing «»»ii .business 
ninctions cost from about 
£300 to £5,000. 

Computer expert David 
Hewson edits the Wordsmiih, 
a new magazine for writers 
which, offers specialized infor- 
mation on word processors. 
He advises you not to consider 
one under £399 plus VAT, the 
price of the original Amstrad 
8236 (computer prices always 
exdude VAT). ' 

“Don't buy . something 
which is just adequate for your 
present needs — it can be the 
worst economy under the 
sun", he advises.“Never con- 
sider an outdated model at a 
give-away juice, but take ad- 
vantage of the best juice 
available on the current mod- 
els— the differences can be 
startling.'* 

If in doubt you can always 
rent This gives you the oppor- 
tunity to try different models 
or simply to make up your' 
mind whether you need a PC 
at afi. CCA Micro Rentals in 
Fulham, London, for exam- 
ple, offer IBM, Compaq, Ap- 
ple and . Apricot on daily, 
weekly ami monthly terms. 
The cost is. about 10 per cent 
of the purchase juice per 
month (these machines range 
from £1,700 to £6,000). 

If you want to buy at the end 
of your rental period you will 
be offered a generous rebate. 


There are three types - dot 
matrix, daisy wheel and laser. 
The dot matrix is the least 
expensive but sometimes pro- 
duces text which is difficult to 
read. The better ones print the 
dots so dose together that the 
result is much more like that 
of a typewriter, but is still not 
of a high enough quality for 
important documents. Prices 
are about £250 and brands 
recommended by the 
Wordsmiih include the Epson, 
Star and Canon. The Amstrad 
printer is dot matrix bat of 
reasonably good quality. 

Daisy wheel printers pro- 
duce excellent quality but are 
extremely slow, which defeats 
one of the main purposes of 
buying a computer. They can 
be used in conjunction with an 
electronic typewriter which 
needs to be adapted for the 
purpose. Prices are from £300 
to £2,000. 

Laser printers are the 
newest. They use photocopy- 
ing technology and produce a 
high quality result almost 
equivalent to typesetting. But 
they are expensive at the 
moment — from £1,800. Prices 
are expected to come down 
within two years. This is a 
point to bear in mind when 
considering any home com- 
puter - you are investing in a 
new industry and improve- 
ments are being made ail the 
time. 


Writers and freelance public 
relations consultants need 
word processing, filing, good 
printing. The new Amstrad 
8512 (illustrated) offers the 
best package, including print- 
er, for £499. No other PCs 
have printers included in the 
price, so there is a gap of 
around £500 between 
Amstrad and the rest for a 
complete package. 

Graphic artists, small clubs 
and house journal producers 
need the ability to do layouts 
and draw on screen. For them 
nothing matches the Apple 
Macintosh Plus at ££295 
without printer. 

Small businesses need word 
processing and possibly finan- 
cial spreadsheets and stock 
control. They could consider 
the new Amstrad if they are 
prepared to regard it as a 
learning tool. A longer-term 
choice could be anything IBM 
compatible. These indude the 
Compaq (£4.249). and the 
transportable Philips P2000C 
(£1.093). The IBM PC itself 
costs £1,805. Its siiecialized 
programmes will also help 
professionals who take work ; 
home — surveyors, solicitors, ! 
architects, for instance. 

Educationalists and program- 
ming enthusiasts liked the 
BBC Model B, which is no 
longer made. The new model 
is the BBC Master at £500 
without printer.

Bright sparks on 
the Marks shelves 



Go to shops which have a 
good range of hardware well 
displayed. You need to be able 
to sit down and try the feel of 
computers, so the shops that i 
keep them on shelves like 
boxes of detergent will not 
give you adequate advice. 

I found Dixons the most 
helpful of the high street 
chains (although not all 
branches may have assistants 1 
with the knowledge and expe- 
rience 1 encountered). John 
Lewis, too, was extremely 
helpful. 

The salesman gave expert 
attention to my requirements 
and spent half an hour advis- 
ing and demonstrating, with- 
out any attempt at a hard sell. 

Otherwise, if you have a 
friendly local specialist who 
gives good after-sales service, 
take advantage of the personal 
interest you could build up. If 
you are spending a lot of 
money, a training course is 
often included in the price.

Marks & Spencer is the apple 
of Mrs Thatcher's eye, ami of 
everyone rise's, it seems. As 
purveyors of some of the finest 
foodstuffs in the land, from 
frozen prawns to sandwiches, 
M & S's quest for quality is 
undisputed. 

There is. however, one area 
of its food department where 
St Michael's halo shines a lot 
less brightly: that of the wine 
section. This is not, as I once 
thought because Marks A 
Sparks has a different poticy 
when selecting wines, rather 
than foods, for its shelves. As 
Gary Jenkins, its merchandise 
manager for wines and previ- 
ously with various food depart- 
ments, pointed out to me this 
week: “Our wine-buying poli- 
cy is the same as foods. As 
with everything in the score we 
are aiming at good quality and 
value for money." 

Why, then, does Marks & 
Spencer have such a disap- 
pointing wine selection? The 
company first started to sell 
wine 12 years ago. Originally 
only half-a-dozen obvious 
wines such as claret, chianti 
and liebfraumilcb were sold. 

Unlike competitors, sach as 
Sainsbury and Waifrose, M & 
S has a very limited area in 
which to sell wine. So the 
company was forced from the 
beginning to concentrate on a 
limited range of big-selling 
lines. In 1982. however, it 
introduced its more upmarket 
Vintage Selection range which 
followed on from the success- 
ful introduction of a few perils 
chateaux clarets and the like. 
Mr Jenkins describes this 
move as a “deliberate policy of 
widening our range to make 
people take us seriously as a 
wine merchant". 

Since then the Vintage Se- 
lection range has grown to 
include about 14 different 
wines, representing a quarter 
of the total M & S wine list 

Certainly it is an improve- 
ment on the usual M&S range 
of lambrnsco (both red and 
while). Asti Spnmante, lieb- 
franmilch and so on. But, once 
again, the quality for the most 
part is just not good enough. 
This, I feel, may be due, in 
part, to the comjxany's tradi- 
tion of constantly moving its 
buyers — or selectors, to use 
M&S parlance — from de- 
partment to dejttrtment. The 
previous wine selector left to 
look after the delicatessen: the 
current one previously worked 
in the Paris head office as a 
textile merchandiser. 

Still. Mr Jenkins promised 
me that Marks & Spencer will 
continue to develop its wine 
range. This summer sees the 
arrival of a new country wine 
selection from France and 
Italy, featuring the lesser 
known regional wines that 
“the locals drink". The com- 
pany is also trying hard to fill 
in the gaps in its range and is 
conducting trials with new 
tipples such as its canned 
Cooler range. 

Thankfully, there are still a 
handful of Marks & Spencer 
wines whose quality is among 
the best that the high street 
produces. ! have always ad- 
mired its Chablis from die 
Chablisienne co-operative. 
While the price has crept np to 
£5.50 doe. understandably, to 


the chablis shortage, the latest 
1984 vintage is everything 
j-frnh iig should be: an attrac- 
tive greeny-gold colour plus 
that fresh green vegetal taste 
which white burgundy fans, 
including myself, adore. 

1 am also fond of the one- 
litre bottle of St Michael's 
French Full Red which, priced 
at £3.25, has been the best buy 
in the wine department since 
its introduction. It is actually a

France. With its 12 per cent

our and lively spicy

raspberry/redcocnranty smell 
and taste, it is good value for 
money. 

Slightly less pleasing, per- 
haps. but a gain good value at 
£2.99, is the St Michael 
Vintage Selection 1983 Claret 
from GaUlaire. I especially 
like its young cassis-like bou- 
quet even if its fresh grassy 
palate was less impressive. 

Marks & Spencer usually 
has some good champagnes on 
offer. WTtiie I cannot recom- 
mend the new rose, its Blanc 
de Blancs Champagne from 
the Union co-operative with its 
crisp flowery Chardonnay fla- 
vour makes an excellent April 
sparkler. At £8.99, it also 
happens to be the star buy 
among Marks & Spencers's 
more expensive wines. Let us 
hope it is joined soon by other 
wines of the same ilk.

They can be served either 

with a wedge oflemon ora few 

drops of Worcestershire sauce, 
pureed potatoes and a green 
ve^ table. • 

There are three reapes for 
home made sausages in A- 
Taste Of England of winch 



this 18ih-centmy formula for 
skinless Oxford sausages is the 
oldest 

Oxford Sausages 

Makes about 16 

225q (8oz) lean porK 

225g (8oz) pie veal 

140g (5oz) brown 

breadcrumbs 

200g (7oz) shredded suet 
Grated rind of 56 large 

lemon 

A teaspoon dried sage 
A teaspoon dried thyme 
'A teaspoon grated nutmeg 
Freshly ground black 
pepper 


Trim the meats so that no 
gristly pieces are left Then 
mince them both finely, put 
them through twice if you like 
a finer texture. Add the 
breadcrumbs and moisten 
with two tablespoons of water. 
Mix well then add the lemon 
rind, suet, nutmeg, herbs, salt 
and pepper, using about one 
quarter teaspoon of the latter. 
Mix again. . 

Flour your hands and form 
the mixture into sausage 
shapes to the size you like. 


Then place them on a lightly- 
floured dish or board. They 
can be chilled until you need 
to cook them. 

Heat up either a little oil or 
butler, or a mixture, and when 
it is hot (but not too hot) fry 
each sausage for about five 
minutes on each side, or until 
it is golden brown and a little 
crusty. 

They are delicious served 
other for breakfast with eggi 
or bacon, says Theodora 
FitzGibbon, or for luncheon 
with butter beans and onions. 

There are authentic recipes 
for place-name dishes like 

Mehon Mowbray pork pie. 
Bakewell pudding, Grasemere 
gingerbread. Tweed kettle, 
and Lincolnshire stuffed 
chine. And there are all-but- 
forgotten specialities like dee 
saucer pancakes, mushroom 
pudding and eel slew. 

Not surprisingly a great 
many old English puddings 
involve apples and most of the 
recipes are variations on 
familar themes. But Notting- 
ham pudding, which consists 
of whole stuffed apples in a 
baked batter, is new to me. 


Nottingham poddkig 

Serves six 


6 medium, even-sized 
Bramley apples 


85g (3oz) butter 


85q (3oz) caster sugar 


A pinch each of nutmeg and 

doves 

6 tablespoons flour 

3 eggs 

About 300ml (% pint) milk 
Pinch of salt 

Peel and core the apples and 
keep them in salted water until 
needed. Cream the butter and 
sugar until light and add the 
nutmeg and cloves. Fill the 
centres of the drained apples 
with this mixture. Pul the 
apples in a well buttered 
ovenproof dish. 

Blend the flour with a little, 
cold water, add the well- 
beaten eggs and a pinch of salt 
Then add enough milk to 
make a thick, creamy 
batter.Pour the batter over the 
apples and bake in a pre- 
heated moderate oven 
(18tTC/35(TF. gas mark 4) for 
l'/2 hours. Serve hot with 
whipped cream.

REVIEW 





Symphonic scoicsffroin Beethoven (left) and Mozart 


Musical proof that 
history isn’t bunk 


I cannot say whether or not 
the Orchestra of the 18th 
Century reproduce any of the 
styles of that temporally and 
geographically multifarious 
period; the question is of 
course unanswerable, irreks 
vant and probably 
meaningless. 

But 1 can say that their 
performances of symphonies 
by Mozart and Beethoven, 
conducted by Frans Bruggen, 
are mirades of grace, energy, 
searching musicianship and 
illumination. One might even 
feel a bit naughty listening to 
them, for at last they offer a 
“historical" style without the 
usual penitential sound: the 
strings are light and agile, the 
wind a bunch of son-toned 
individuals, and they all play 
in tune. 

But perhaps what most 
distinguishes these perfor- 
mances is the evidence of a 
shaping sensitivity contained 
within each line. The result 
seems to be a communal 
proposal guided and vitalized 
by Bruggen: a piece of large 
chamber music. And that 
allows for a nice ambiguity in 
much of the Mozart between 
passionate song and elegant 
dance, or in the Beethoven for 
a very startling display of what 
a startling piece it is. 

If we have many more 
records like this, it is the 
conventional performances 
that win start to sound 
strange. Such comparisons are 
not, though, the reason for my 
dissatisfaction with the Bee- 
thoven offered by Murray 
Perahia and the Concert- 
gebouw under Haitink. 

Nor are those artists partic-

ularly to blame. Perahia. even 
outside his usual territory, is a 
constant fund of neta ideas — 
and not just dreamy 
imaginings but also some very 
sharp retorts, in the finale of 
the G major concerto, for 
instance- But his piano sounds 
so enormously larger than the 
orchestra as to destroy any 
illusion of dialogue: there is 
the curious impression of a 
pianist of highly tuned sensi- 
bility in an artificial, insensate 
situation. 

Nor, sadly, can I be very 
encouraging about Haitink's 
new recording of 
Shostakovich's “Babi Yar” 
symphony. Here again (and 
bow necessary it is in this 
right combination of grimness 
and nobility, of suffering and 
work) Haitmk provides the- 
se renity. the sense of a com- 
poser doomed to grandeur. 


The problem is with the 
solo part, which is all-impor- 
tant (the bass is effectively the 
spokesman for all those taking 
[art, whether as musicians or 
as listeners), but which is 
robbed of its authority here by 
Marius Rintzler’s uncon- 
trolled vibrato. The song cy- 
cles — the superb late 
Tsvetayeva set and the Jewish 
folk poems — are much better 
done, with different soloists, 
and one hopes they may be 
made available in another 
form. 

The qualities of Haitink's 
Shostakovich are not so differ- 
ent from those of Abbado's 
Tchaikovsky, except that 
Abbado gives more evidence 
of loving sheer tone quality 
(though of course Tchai- 
kovsky's tone quality is much 
easier to love, especially when 
h is being (nought to life by 
the Chicago Symphony). 

His recording of the E 
Minor Symphony is very plea- 
surable, even if it does not 
come near disguising the repe- 
titiousness of the slow move- 
ment or what always sounds 
like a misjudgement of pos- 
ture in the finale. 

It is not, you may gather, 
very surprising, which certain- 
ly cannot be said of the 
recording of the First Piano 
Concerto featuring Ivo 
Pogorelich. Here one barely 
notices what the orchestra is 
doing, or indeed what the 
work is doing, so full of 
vainglorious eccentricity is the 
solo playing. With no cou- 
pling, this is strictly for the 
Pogo fans.

Recording, especially on com- 
pact disc, gives just that' 
illusion of the definitive which 
Vladimir Horowitz would be 
the first to reject. Yet here are 

I I archetypal, performances, 

frozen into perpetuity and 
taken from a film, Horowitz, 
the fast Romantic, made a year 
ago and due to be screened on 
Channel 4. ... 

Bui it is precisely because 
Horowitz has been the most 
volatile of perform ere all fare 
fife, genuinely incapable ot 
giving the same performance 
twice, that the music seems to 
shift and change attach 
listening, so rich m unpredict- 
able detail are these per- 
formances. . 

H would be worth buymg 
the Bach-BnsoBi/Mamiy- 
Chop in /Rachmaninov CD for 
single moments like i be two 
opening chords of his Chopin 
B minor Scherzo, cadi one a 
single distillation of the ex- 
pressive range which is to 
come. And then there is bis 
Mozart. Here Horowitz 
chooses meticulously nom 
what he has so often spoken ot 
as his instrument's hundreds 
of sounds and tones between 
piano and forte, to find the 
voices, weights and no- 
minees peculiar to Mozarts 
language. 

His scampering mezzo-stac- 
cato in the C mftfor K330 
Sonata has a coppery bnl- 



Clearty different: Vladimir Horowitz, captured oa CD 


fiance which lets fight into its 
innermost voices and sets up 
an audacious game of hide- 
and-seek in the finale. There is 
Scriabin, Schumann and 
Liszt, too: and a performance 
of Schubert's A flat major 
impromptu in which the sud- 
den surfacing of a single 
sympathetic note can recolour 
and reshape one's, entire lis- 
tening response. 

Horowitz at .82 sounds 
younger than the 34ryear-oJd 
Zoftan Kocsis whose J9SI 
recording of Chopin: the 19 
waltzes has just been released 
on CD. What ihese-fluent and 
sensitive performances have 
always lacked is a sense of the 
son. of quicksilver response 
which can catch the breath of 
the listener and make him 
wonder as well as admire. 

Where they gain is in what 
Kocsis makes of their se- 
quence: The sparkling ^liety 
Of No 4*s “Valse briUanie”.for 
instance, rises out of. the 
introspection of the A minor 
and bounces, in turn, imo the 
eddying passqgework of bis 
“Grande Valse". 

The Art of Marion Ander- 
son has just appeared in the 
HMV Treasury, skilfully 
transferred from 78s and re- 
mastered by Keith Hardwick. 

Anderson was the first black 
singer to be hired by the Met 
in 1955: the simplicity and- 
dignity. of .her “He was 


despised" cuts through the 
somewhat boxy resonance of 
the recording, in her firm 
steady bass clarinet of a 
mezzo. One of the most 
startling tracks is her 1936 
recording of Schubert's 
“Death and the Maiden" in 
which the voice creates two 
masks: the vulnerability of 
youth in her ringing high 
register and. in an unearthly 
basso profundo, the stillness 
of eternity. 

Where the inflections of 
speech rise into folksong, in 
spiritual or in Scandinavian 
song. Anderson responds with 
a reflective, almost private: 
simplicity. Her traditional 
Finnish “Tuku, tuku" and her 
“Deep River" become cameos 
of her performing personality. 

Gmirioube’s settings of the 
folksong of his own region 
have found similar sympathy 
in the voice of Frederica von 
Slade. Her second volume of 
the Chants d'Auvergne offers 
the gently retrospective “At 
the Mirabel Bridge", the wry 
“Hunchback" and still more 
vocalized drifting from hilltop 
to hilltop. 

To fill out the first side we 
have the Chaussonesque 
Triptyque — steamy. late-Ro- 
mantic settings of Roger 
Frtne’s pantheistic love 

poetry.

THE WEEK AHEAD 


Solving the 


mysteries 
of France 


FILMS ON TV 


The BBC has collected an 
interesting mixed bag of 
French films from the late 
1930s and !940s, a period of 
great artistic achievement in 
the French cinema, which 
produced masterpieces like 
Marcel Carrie's Les Enfants du 
Paradis and Le Jour Se Live 
and Renoir’s La Rtgle du Jeu. 

The five films in the BBC 
season (showing Monday-Fri- 
day, 2pm) are nor from the top 
league but they are all enjoy- 
ably watchable and demon- 
strate the depth of talent in the 
French cinema at the time. 
Some of the directors and 
actors featured are now largely 
forgotten; others went on to 
greater acclaim. 

The Murderer Lives at 
N amber 21, made in 1942 
(Monday), was Henri-Georges 
Clouzot's debat as a director. 
He later went on to make two 
of the most praised suspense 
films of the 1 950s - Les 
Diaboliques and The Wages of 
Fear, His first film was a tight 
low-key thriller full of grainy 
Parisian atmosphere. Pierre 
Fresnay plays the inspector 
investigating four murders in 
Montmartre. He suspects a 
lodger at the address in the 
title and moves into the 
building himself to pursue 
inquiries. 

Rigolboche (1936, Tuesday) 

Legends of 
the desert 
crusader 


TELEVISION 


is a melodrama worth watch- 
ing mainly for a rare film 
appearance of the flamboyant 
Mislinguett who, logether 
with her lover Maurice Cheva- 
lier. dominated the French 
music hall in the inter-war 
years. Misiingueu portrays a 
woman who flees Senegal for 
Paris after a killing, becomes a 
famous cabaret star but finds 
her past catching up with her. 
Rigoihoche (her stage name) 
was directed by the prolific 
Cfcriszian-Jaque. who made 
more than 50 films, many of 
them on historical themes. 

Love Eternal (1943. 
Wednesday) is typical of a 
number of French films made 
during the war. Prevented by 
the German occupation from 
making realistic contempo- 
rary films, directors and writ- 
ers turned to allegory to make 
their point about the state of 
France. Love Eternal , a huge 
commercial success at the 
time, was directed by Jean 
DeJannoy but its true creator 
was Jean Cocteau who wrote 
the screenplay — a modem 
reworking of Tristan and Isol- 
de - and was responsible for 
the surrealist images. 

The End of the Day (1943. 
Thursday) has masterful per- 
formances by Louis Jouvet, 
one of the leading stage and 
film actors of the period, and 
Michel Simon, the ugly gravel- 
ly-voiced character actor of 
many French films of the 
1930s. The title refers to a 
home for elderly actors to 
which Jouvet has just retired. 



Double vision: Bernard Blier and Simone Sign or et as husband and wife in The Wanton 

joyously captivating as a girl 
loved by two men (Channel 
4. Wed. 10-1 1.55pm). 


The awakening of old emo- 
tions and jealousies among the 
inmates is sensitively and 
movingly conveyed. The di- 
rector Julien Duvivier was 
one of the great “poet-realists" 
of the 1930s cinema, whose 
classics include Camct de Bal 
and Pepe-le-Xtoko. 

Friday’s offering is The 
Wanton (Maneges). From a 
slightly later generation, 1949, 
it is a very French story of 
marital infidelity, told 
through competing flash- 
backs — one set representing 
marriage as ideal, the other 
revealing the truth. Simone 
Signoret was directed by her 
then husband, Yves Allegret.

A Damsel in Distress 
(1937): Fred Astaire without 
Ginger Rogers (Joan 
Fontaine substituted) in 
pleasant Gershwin hit 
musical. P.G. Wodehouse had 
a hand in the writing (BBC2, 
Tues, 3.35-5. 15pm). 

Because You're Mine 
(1952): Mario Lanza was no 
actor, and the film's plot is 
irrelevant, but it is a good 
reminder of an 
extraordinaiy singing voice 
(Channel 4, Tues, 9- 
10.55pm). 

Jutes et Jim (1962): 

Francois Truffaut's brilliant 
elegant, ebullient study of

This England (1941): 

Uplifting wartime patriotism, 
following the history of an 
English village and its stalwart 
citizens through the 
centuries. Dated, occasionally 
risible but fascinating 
(Channel 4. Thurs, 5-6.25pm). 

‘Lianna (1982): John 
Sayfes's impressive film about 
lesbian love is illuminating, 
unpatronizing, fresh, full of 
humour, and serious 
without being preachy 
(Channel 4, Fri, 11.1 5pm- 
1 20am). 

■First British television 
showing. 


The legend of T. E Lawrence 
— soldier, scholar and ro- 
mantic philosopher — has not 
diminished with time. His 
reputation may have become 
tarnished but the epithet Law- 
rence of Arabia, in no small 
pan thanks to David Lean's 
film, conjures up images of 
flowing white robes, the burn- 
ing desert sun and a man's 
moral integrity. 

Omnibus: Lawrence and 
Arabia (BBC1, Fri, 10.25- 
11.55pm), a roaming, reap- 
praising documentary that 
dispenses conflicting opinion, 
some skeletons, rarely-seen 
newsreel footage and photo- 
graphs by Lawrence, may 
debunk some of Lean's images 
and popular myths propagat- 
ed by the media circus in the 
1920s, but the lion-hearted 
crusader emerges with reputa- 
tion substantially intact 

Julia Cave, the producer, 
has assembled a comprehen- 
sive collection of witnesses 
who actually knew the enig- 
matic man, including his 86- 
year-old brother and the 
eloquent Canon HalLa friend 
at school and university, now 
aged 98. 

Their memories, un- 
dimmed, raise this excellent 
programme from the realms of 
retrospective theory to re- 
membrances of an extraordi- 
nary life.

A celebration of the 
best of Beckett 


RADIO 


From the sands of time: Lawrence of Arabia in 1917 


9pm). Dr Richard Dawkins, a 
zoologist from Oxford Uni- 
versity, demolishes the "sur- 
vival of the finest/strongest" 
view of evolution with a 
certain staid pleasure. He 
shows a world where cheats 
never prosper and co-opera- 
tion is mutually beneficial. Put 
simply, reciprocal altruism 
boils down to: "If you scratch 
my back. Til scratch yours". lo 
that game everyone is a 
winner. 

Zastnizzi (Channel 4, to- 
morrow, 9-lOpm). a nightmar- 
ish four-part Gothic fantasy 
based on a deservedly forgot- 
ten novel that the poet Shelley 
wrote as an 18-year-old in 
1810. is self-indulgent and 
bombastic. 

The story is impenetrable 
and riddled with monosyllabic 
rumblings and metaphysical 
digressions, so the sparing 
extracts of Shelley's flowery 
prose sparkle in contrast. 

Proof that animal lovers 
recognize no frontiers comes 
in Darrell in Russia (Channel 
4, tomorrow, 4.45-5.1 5pm )._ 


The Soviet Union, which 
comprises one-sixth of the 
world’s land surface with 
many climatic zones, is a 
treasure trove of rarely tele- 
vised wildlife. The genial Ger- 
ald Dunrell proves a relaxed 
and informative guide, equal- 
ly popular with animals and 
comrades. 

As you would expect from a 
thriller from the pen of Ian 
Kennedy Martin, creator of 
The Sweeney, and directed by 
Ian Toymo’n ( Widows and 
Minder). The Fourth Floor 
(ITV, Mon. Tues and Wed, 9- 
10pm) is gutsy, pacy and 
unpredictable. 

Christopher Fulford and 
Richard Graham, as Sergeants 
Miller and Collins, spearhead 
the action as hard men in 
pursuit of granite-faced vil- 
lains. Someone somewhere is 
shopping heroin couriers. 
Why? 

But that is only the begin- 
ning of a deadly 
investigation... 

Bob Williams 


Tomorrow is Samuel Beckett's 
official 80th birthday. As 
readers of The Times diary 
(and of his biography) wQl 
know, he was actually bora oa 
May 13 - bat Radio 3 is going 
along with Beckett's own ver- 
sion of things and will be 
celebrating from tomorrow. 

On that day they will broad- 
cast All That Fall (7.30- 
8.40pm), a play commissioned 
by the BBC and first beard in 
1957. Those wary of Beckett's 
forbidding reputation would do 
well to try this relatively light 
and very funny piece. Set in a 
kind of imaginary Ireland, full 
of self-conscious sound effects, 
it 1ms in its cast two of the 
great Beckett actors -Jack 
MacGowran and Patrick 
Magee. 

These two — both blessed 
with wonderfully compelling 
voices — can be heard again 
on Tuesday in Embers (Radio 
3, 7 JO-8.1 5pm), a piece writ- 
ten specially for them. To 
Beckett's surprise, this play 
won the Prix Italia in 1959 — 
be even attended the award 
ceremony in Sorrento. 

Rough for Radio (Radio 3, 
Wednesday, 9.45-l0.10pm) 
was first broadcast on 
Beckett's 70lh birthday, and is 
a translation by the anchor of 
his French original. And final- 
ly, A Piece of Monologue 
(Friday, 9.10-9.25pm) rounds 
off the celebrations — which, 
by the way. have the official 
Beckett seal of approval. A 
Piece of Monologue is a new 
production, by Ronald Mason, 


of a piece originally written for 
the stage in 1980, and the 
reader — Beckett’s choice — 
will be that excellent radio 
actor Ronald Pickup. This one 
begins with the definitive ut- 
terance, “Birth was the death 
of him..." 

Death on a grand scale is 
the subject of a fascinating 
investigation into the plague 
epidemics of the Middle Ages 
by Geoff Watts. The Onely 
Sicknesse (Radio 4, tomorrow, 
10.15-1 lpm) looks particular- 
ly at the measnres taken to 
contain the disease, and won- 
ders whether bubonic plague 
alone was responsible . 

More appetizingly, a new 
panel game called Questions 
of Taste (Radio 4, today, 
12.27-1 pm) begins with Rus- 
sel! Davies in the chair. The 
subject is food and drink, and 
the two teams will be led by 
foodie Paul Levy and 
oenophDe Oz Clarke. 

It’s Your World (Radio 4, 
tomorrow, 12.10-lpm) returns 
with a new series of interna- 
tional phone-ins. David 
Lange, the controversial New 
Zealand prime minister, is 
first into the rather tepid hot 
seat. Over on Radio 3, Conti- 
nental Cabaret Chansons (to- 
night, 11-1 1.30pm) will be 
exploring the history of Euro- 
pean cabaret for the next eight 
weeks, with recordings of 
many legendary voices from 
Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Zorich, 
and so on. The first pro- 
gramme includes rare waxings 
of Yvette Guilbert and 
Aristide Brnanf — not to men- 
tion the Comedian Harmo- 
nists, evoking "The Crocodile 
Bar on the River Nile".

W hen J.R Priestley 
died two years 
ago, Jacquetta 
Hawkes, his wid- 
ow. decided that she could not 
keep the house near Stratford 
which they had shared for 
more than a quarter of a 
century, but that she would 
stay nearby, in the Cotswold 
country she loves. 

This week she made her 
move, to a square, yellow 
sione bouse on one main 
street of Chipping Campden, 
having concluded, as she puts 
it, that declining years are 
more sensibly spent in, and 
not outside, the villages. This 
week she also paid one of her 
rare visits to London; her new 
book. The Shell Guide to 
British Archaeology, is pub- 
lished on Monday. 

She is relieved that both 
events are over. When I 
arrived to see her in Chipping 
Campden she was typing hard, 
at work on an already late 
contribution to a new guide to 
the history of British art 
Her new book is the first 
guide of its kind to include 
both Roman and prehistoric 
England, Wales and Scotland; 
it is written for those with no 
special knowledge, one of 
Jacquetta Hawkcs’s particular 
marks as an archaeologist 
having been as a guide to the 
interested but ignoranL 
Although she bridles slight- 
ly when anyone refers to her as 
a pcpularizer. protesting that 
what she tries to do is awaken 
the imagination, she unques- 
tionably posseses that very 
rare arid much-prized talent 
for combining accurate sci- 
ence with an easy literary 
style. Did it happen by choice? 
"I don’t think 1 ever plan 
anything. It happens. I could 
have been a pure scholar. I 
had a First from Cambridge 
and I was the first student to 
lake the new archaeological 
Tnpos. But 1 didn’t really 
want to." 

Whatever she is saying, 
Jacquetta Hawkes sounds 
modesL her manner is reti- 
cent though friendly; she 
looks down a lot of the time 
She is a tall woman, in a neat 
tailored tweed suil with a 
cameo brooch at the neck of 
her silk shut 



With stylish ease, 
Jacquetta Hawkes 
combines a love 
of archaeology 
with anecdote 

Instead of the pure academ- 
ic life, she travelled and wrote 
up accounts of excavations, 
then married, then spread 
further and fiirther outwards 
to take in what is her most, 
famous book, A Land, with 
Henry Moore, then plays, 
novels, lectures, television ap-' 
pea ranees on Mortimer 
Wheeler’s Animal Vegetable 
and Mineral and on the Brains 
Trust, reviews for the Sunday ’ 
Times and The Observer, and 
a volume of poetry. 

Would she have changed 
that path? “No. but 1 would 
have liked to have been able to 
complete all kinds of alterna- 
tive lives. Perhaps specialized 
in the Minoan dvflizanon 
instead of stone age?' Even _ 
stayed in the civil service, and 
seen if I could rise to the top 
and now be on a hugs 
pension." 

During the war, Jacquetta 
Hawkes was recruited to work 
in a small department specu- 
lating about post war recon- 
struction, and then became 
the United Kingdom secretary 
to Unesco. She points out that 
she found the ‘‘public school 
rivalries between departments 
very silly”. 

H ow did the archae- 
ology start? “It was 
my mother’s inter- 
est in history, I 
think, and the foci that our 
house outside Cambridge was 
on the edge of a Roman road 
and an Anglo-Saxon cemetery. 

1 was fascinated that it was so 
easy to distinguish between 
ihedifferetu objects." 

Fiction came much bier, 
the 1920s were all archaeolo- 
gy “But during the war I 
found research rather sienie. I 
don’t know why; it just hap- 
pened. My imagination woke 
up " The war also sparked off 
her “one slim volume" She 




wishes there had been more 
poetry “of a really spine- 
chilling kind”. 

The only other veree, writ- 
ten in the form of a long poem 
to CND women during the 
days when she - and 
J.B. Priestley went on the 
Aidermaston marches was 
"terrible". 

Jacquetta Hawkes talks of 
the 25 years with Priestley at 
Kissing Tree House and the 
seven years before on the Isle 
of Wight, with obvious plea- 
sure' There was some surprise 
at her liaison, with Priestley, 
since they seemed so different: 
she, very tall and fair, daugh- 
ter of the Nobel Prize- winning 
biochemist. Sir Frederick 
Hopkins, and in her thirties; 
he is his fifties, with a face he 
once endearingly described as 
like a “glowering pudding”. 

Clearly, it was a happy fife. 
They travelled a great deal, 
mainly to the American south 
west Journey Down a. Rain- 
bow is an exchange of letters 
and essays between New Mex- 
ico, where she stayed with an 
Indian tribe, and Texas, where 
he visited millionaires. “I had 
the better time, but he had 
more jokes.” She celebrated 
something of this happiness in 
a surprisingly personal novel, 
A Quest of Love, published in 
1980, in which she wrote: “I 
'find in myself a strong desire 
to utter the thankfulness I feel 
for a relationship which, late 
though it was forged, is richer 
and more whole than any that 
went before." 

jacquetta Hawkes has al- 
ways been a walker; she means 
to go on walking now, though 
arthritis m one hip is begin- 
ning to make foe steps a bit 
uneven. She is 76 this year. 
And her plans? No more 
archaeology for foe moment, 
but a book on old age. “I want 
to try to wme something 
objective, record the patterns 
of decline as they happen. 
Perhaps it may even be opti- 
mistic. who knows?”

. Eli Wiese!, the Jewish writer on the Nazi 
holocaust. tens that at the end of the war he 
was incarcerated in a concentration camp 
which was liberated by the American 
Army. Among those liberated were Rus- 
sian prisoners of war as well as the 
surviving remnants of the Jewish 
prisoners. . 

The response of these two groups of 
prisoners was strikingly different. Immedi- 
ately on liberation, the Russians comman- 
deered jeeps and guns and drove into the 
nearest Goman town shooting at every- 
thing that lived. Their suffering and their 
hatred coukl only be assuaged by Mood 
and they exhausted themselves in a blood 
bath. 

■ The response of the Jewish prisoners, 
was to gather a quorum for prayer, They 
recited the afternoon service, then, in 
solemn and tearful unison they repeated 
the Kaddisb, that doxology of praise to G- 
d which is recited by mourners at the death 
of a close relative. 

In the midst of the dead and the dying, 
surrounded by skeletons of the living as 
well as the dead, with the sights of the most 
barbaric cruelties ever committed by man 
before them, when the world must have 
seemed to them to have finally collapsed 
in wickedness, they found the traditional 
Jewish response to tragedy. 

“The Lord has given and the Lord has 
taken, Messed be the name of the Lord." 

"Exalted and hallowed be the name of 
G-d in a world that He is to create anew, to 
revive the dead and to raise them to 
everlasting life, sod to rebuild the City of 
Jerusalem and to establish the temple 
within ft." 

Not only a prayer for those so horribly 
murdered, but a song of hope for the future 
when the name of G-d will be exalted and 
sanctified by all mankind. 

As the psalmist exdaims: u I shall not 
die, but I shall live and declare the works 
of G-d." The Jew secs the purpose of his 
existence to live for his faith not to die for 
it, and to declare the unity of G-d in the 
universe. 

There are three distinct concepts in the 
Kaddish; it is firstly, that in the midst of 
death, there is life and hope. "You have 
raised my soul from the nether world, you 


have given me life from those who descend 
to the pit” (Psalm 30). A hymn of 
thanksgiving that we can live and declare 
the greatness of G-d. 

It is also, an acceptance of G-d's will. 
Not our will shall prevail when life draws 
to its dose, but Thy will. We accept His 
will and submit to the ruler of the 
universe. Thirdly it is a prayer for the 
future of mankind, for the fulfilment of the 
prophecies of the unity of man in the 
worship ofG-d. "May he who makes peace 
in his exalted places, make peace upon us 
and upon all Israel," the Kaddish 
concludes. 

Israel's faith was put to its greatest test in 
all its tragic history, with Hitler's delib- 
erately planned murder of a third of its 
people, in the Nazi holocaust. This evil 
design found many willing helpers. Re- 
search has shown that a high proportion of 
those who did the actual killing were 
educated and professional men. One 
million Jewish children were hounded 
down and barbarically murdered by the 
people of Goethe. Beethoven and Kant, a 
nation of musicians, philosophers and 
scientists. 

How could there still be hope for 
mankind when such people were proved io 
be capable of the most fiendish cruelties? 
Is there really a possibility of redemption 
for those who dragged babies from their 
mothers' arms and flung them alive into 
the pit? And could those who survived still 
pray for mankind and its redemption? 

But a miracle occurred. Those who had 
looked into the depths of Hell, sang the 
praise of G-d. said a prayer for mankind 
and set about to create a new life of peace 
and justice in a new land. Their ideals had 
not perished in the gas chambers by the age 
of science. Their rabbis and scholars, 
decimated by the powers of evil, would 
renew their learning and rebuild their 
schools in Israel and in other lands. As one 
far-seeing rabbi, himself a survivor of the 
holocaust, put it, "in my small town in 
Lithuania, there were 1,000 Jewish chil- 
dren. all of whom were killed. I shall 
rebuild my town in Israel and 1,000 Jewish 
children will be reborn there. And perhaps 
those very souls of the murdered children 
will find a new life in the bodies of the chil- 
dren bom in Israel." And in a fury of 


regeneration, he set about rebuilding, 
homes, schools and colleges in Israel 
where children find happiness and fulfil- 
ment today. 

Such is the power of faith in redemption. 

The redemptive miracle continues to- 
day in Soviet Russia. For almost 70 years 
there have been no Hebrew schools, no 
religious education, few possibilities to 
observe the sabbath or festivals, scarcely 
any prayer books or Hebrew bibles. At the 
same time, all children have been subject 
to a fierce indoctrination of atheism in the 
schools. What hope there for a living 
Judaism, for Hebrew prayers and learning, 
when the whole might of a ruthless police 
state is determined to stamp it out? 

But the human spirit is unconquerable. 
In small groups, in private flats, with a few 
smuggled text books or tapes, groups of 
children and adults are bring taught at 
fearful risk Former prisoners of the KGB 
like Josef Mendelovitch who served 12 
years in prison, tell how they struggled not 
merely to survive physically, but how they 
miraculously kept their faith and their 
religion alive. How they lit candles made 
from pieces of fat with wicks taken from 
their ragged clothing to welcome the 
sabbath in their cells. How they refused to 
eat un kosher meat even at the cost of semi 
starvation. How they wrote out remem- 
bered prayers on toilet taper, and recited 
psalms to strengthen their spirits. 

The power of redemption springs eter- 
nal in the human breast. U is nourished by 
prayer and sanctified by faith. Professor 
Alexander Lemer, a "refusenik" for 1 3 
years and ousted from his position at the 
University was recently shown on tele- 
vision here. He said: "The past 13 years 
have been the happiest of my life, because 
my spirit is now free. No man can be 
enslaved unless he submits to slavery." 

Of such stuff is redemption made.

OBITUARY 

PROF WILLIAM WALSH 
Historian of philosophy

Victor Mtehcon and Company

those present were Lord 
Mishcon and all the partners. 


Professor William Henry 
Walsh. FRSE, FBA, who died 
on April 7, at the age of 72. 
was a philosopher and histori- 
an of philosophy of interna- 
tional renown, an inspiring 
teacher and a scholar whose 
integrity and judgment made 
him an influential figure in 
many areas of academic fife. 

Born in Leeds on December 
10. 1913. of humble origins - 
his father, Fred, was a baker - 
Walsh received his early edu- 
cation at Leeds Grammar 
School, 

His professional career was 
dominated by two principal 
institutional associations. The 
first was with Merton College, 
Oxford, where he had a distin- 
guished undergraduate career, 
graduating with a first in 
Greats in 1936. and going on 
to become a fellow and tutor 
in philosophy of the college 
from 1947-1960, and fellow 
emeritus from 1 979. 

The second was with Edin- 
burgh University, where he 
was professor of logic and 
metaphysics from 1960 until 
his retirement in 1979. The 
many additional offices which 
he held in this period included 
those of dean of the Faculty ol 
Arts, curator of patronage and 
vice-principle of the 
university. 

Walsh wrote five books and 
many articles which brought 
him the highest academic 
recognition. He was the 
Dawes Hicks lecturer at the 
British Academy in 1963, was 
elected a fellow of the acade- 
my in 1 969 and a fellow of the 
Royal Society of Edinburgh in 
1978. 

The University of Roches- 


ter in the United States con- 
ferred an honorary DHL upon 
him in 1978 and the Universi- 
ty of Edinburgh acknowledged 
his achievements with an 
honorary Doctor of Letters 
last year. 

He was an indispensable 
speaker al international con- 
ferences and held many visit- 
ing professorships in the 
United States. 

His contribution to the 
history of philosophy ranged 
widely but he will be remem- 
bered most for his work on 
KanL on whom he was a 
world authority. 

In pure philosophy hts main 
interests were in metaphysics 
and epistemology and, partic- 
ularly. philosophy of history. 
His widely translated and 
frequently re-issued An Intro- 
duction to Philosophy of Histo- 
ry, although originally written 
in 1951. is still the standard 
work on the subject. 

Walsh's hallmark as a lec- 
turer was his ability to present 
difficult material with great 
clarity. He excelled as a tutor 
because of the enormous 
amount of work he put in on 
behalf of his students, coupled 
with a friendly and interested 
approach towards them. 
Many were invited to his 
home and many became life- 
long friends, whether or not 
they continued in academic 
life. 

His warm and affectionate 
nature made his family life 
very happy. In 1938 he mar- 
ried Beatrix Pearson, who 
gave him every support 
throughout his career. With 
their three children they 
formed a very united family. 


KURT MASCHLER 


Peter du Sautoy writes: 

Kurt Maschler, who has 
died, aged 88. was one of the 
important figures in the Ger- 
man book trade of the 1930s 
who were determined to 
maintain outside Germany 
Ihe best traditions of that 
trade when freedom to publish 
was denied them. 

He wem first to Switzerland 
where he established Atrium 
Veriag; he published a wide 
range of books and had a 
special interest in books for 
children. His star children's 
author was Erich Kaestner, 
whose Emil and the Detectives 
became a worid best-seller. 

Maschler came to England 
and in 1945 entered into 
cooperative arrangements 
with Faber and Faber. With 
Richard de la Mare, who, by a 
sad coincidence, died two 
days before him, he founded a 
company -called Faina Limit- 
ed, primarily to promote the 
Faber Gallery, a pioneering 


series, edited by R. H. 
WilenskL of coloured repro- 
ductions of paintings by fam- 
ous artists with introductions 
and notes by art criliris and 
literary personalities. It was a 
comprehensive and successful 
series and held the field for 
several years. 

Maschler welcomed enthu- 
siastically the establishment of 
the Frankfurt Book Fair in 
1949 and urged British pub- 
lishers to support iL 

When be retired, he set up 
the Kurt Maschler Award for 
children's books which is now 
a much coveted prize, with a 
statuette of “Emil” presented 
to the winner. 

He was a shrewd and well 
informed publisher and a 
modest and friendly colleague, 
always ready to help and 
advise. 

His son. Tom, has inherited 
his father's publishing flair 
and is Chairman of Jonathan 
Ope Limited. 


MR NIGEL MORLAND 

Mr Nigel Morland, the co- "special investigator" at Scot- 
founder of the Crime Writers’ land Yard, launched his prin- 


Association and a prolific and 
characteristic author of crime 
fiction, died on April 3. 

Born at St Pan eras, London, 
in 1905. he liked to claim that 
his nanny took him, at the age 
of two. to visit Dr Crippen. 
who bounced the child on his 
knee. He left school at 14. and 
thereafter earned his living in 
a wide variety of journalistic 
and publishing jobs. 

His grandfather, Auguste 
van Biene. was a celebrated 
cellist and he always said it 
was to escape this cultural 
fame that he went to the Far 
East where he worked princi- 
pally for the Shanghai Mercu- 
ry. but also for the China 
Press, and edited Shaghai 
Sports. 

His first hard cover book. 
The Sibilant Whisper, was 
published in Shanghai in 
J 933. His second, a study of 
the English people, was trans- 
lated. without any English 
edition, directly into Chinese. 

He was soon producing 
books and pulp magazine 
stories in great profusion, 
averaging some 30.000 to 
50.000 words a week, for 
British and American publish- 
ers. He ghosted show business 
memoirs, wrote for Movie Day 
and Hearsi Newspapers, and. 
returning to London, worked 
for Odharas Press. 

With his first wife. Peggy 
Barwell, he tried his hand at 
plays and poetry; bui a spell as 
Edgar Wallace’s secretary had 
introduced him to his true 
metier. The Phantom (1935), 
featuring Mrs Palmyra Pym, a 


cipal series of thrillers. 

In 1936 he wrote a book on 
fingerprints, and, from the 
1950s onwards, he turned 
increasingly to popular crimi- 
nology. doing much to propa- 
gate the literature of forensic 
science. 

He edited not only the 
Edgar Wallace Mystery Mag- 
azine but journals called The 
Criminologist. Forensic and 
Medico-Legal Photography. 
The International Journal of 
Forensic Dentistry and Cur- 
raw Crime. He ran a Mystery 
Book Club and. together with 
John Creasey. founded the 
Crime Writers' Association. 

Married four times - to 
Pamela Barwell, Pamela 
Hunnex. Jill Harvey and Faith 
Percival - he had one son and 
two step-daughtere.

Continued from page 1 
studied several books shoot 
the wartime fate of the Jews. 
“The new element that is 
important for me*' was that he 
was not in Salonika daring the 
deportations. “I was in Tirana 
(the capital of Albania) and an 
interpreter between the Italian 
and German forces. 1 was 
therefore not present during 
the main part of the 
deportations.** 

He laid great emphasis on 
the dates of his various move- 
ments during the period. The 
deportations took place be- 
tween March and August 
1943. 

Dr Waldheim told The 
Times that after returning 
wounded from the Soviet 
Union he recuperated in the 
Vienna area until March 1942, 
when he was pronounced unfit 
for combat. But because he 
spoke Italian, he was sent to 
Yugoslavia as a liaison officer 
with the Italian forces, in 
May. June and July 1942. and 
later to Salonika. But from 
November 1942 until April 
1943. because be was no 
longer eligible for combat, he 
was allowed back to Vienna to 
complete his civilian legal 
studies. He was then sent to 
Tirana. 

“This was the period when 
Italy withdrew from the war 
and my task was to interpret 
during the handing over of 
Italian troop positions, and 
responsibilities, to the 
Germans." 

Dr Waldheim agreed that, 
in the coarse of the same 
duties, he returned to Salonika 
later In 1943. but by that time 
the bulk of tbe deportations 
were over and he had no 
knowledge of them. 

None of this will absolve 
bim from the charge that he 
did. however, have knowledge 
of operations against Yugoslav 
partisans. He admits that 
intelligence work against par- 
tisans was one of his duties bnt 
that it was secondary to his 
task as interpreter. 

On bis general attitude to 
the Nazis. Dr Waldheim said 
that he and his brother distrib- 
uted anti-Nazi leaflets shortly 
before the Anschluss of 1938. 
which joined Austria to 
Germany. “We were beaten np 
by SA thugs for it." he said.

Introducing the aspiring Gass of ’86 



In a few weeks thousands of 
16-ytxir-olds will leave school. 
Others will look forward to two 
years in the sixth form. In a 
project to monitor their fiuure. 
The Times has constructed a 
"Class of Stf "from pupils at 
Bramhall High School in 
Cheshire. In the first report. 
Ian Smith discovers their 
hopes, fears and aspirations; 
over the next 12 months we 
shall follow their progress to 
see how reality measures up. 
■‘The rales here are simple." 
said one fifth-former at 
Bramhall High School. "You 
do well and everyone falls 
over themselves to lead you by 
the hand. Fall behind and they 
turn their backs on you as 
though you have let everyone 
down. It's survival of the 
finest." 

Though that view is noi 
common, pupils at Bramhall 
High do complain of "steam 
cooker" pressure, high expec- 
tations from parents, ruthless- 
ly ambitious teachers who 
concentrate on the brightest 
pupils and of a lack of 
curriculum guidance and ca- 
reer advice. 

The school is a high flier. Its 
exam success rates are twice as 
good as the national

The 20 pupils facing an uncertain future 


Head with 
mission 
to explain 

Mr Alan Debes, (right) 
Bramhall High School s 
head-teacher, is a professed 
enthusiast about education, 
-r five and breathe the job 
and I teQ the kids that die 
more educated you are, the 
more bo charge of your life 
you are. I would seU education 
to anyone because I really 
believe In it." 

' Mr Debes, aged 46, is a 
public school-educated hon- 
ours graduate who trained as 
a probation officer and be- 
lieves himself to be a progres- 
sive educationalist and an 
eminently approachable 
school head. 

“Some head-teachers see 
their job as running a tight 
ship. I think my role is to get 
the red Wood corpuscles run- 
ning, to listen to people and to 
obtain a consensus about 
what is best. 

“We five in a professional 
catchment area and a lot erf 
itwtg are managers of whatev- 



er business they are in. From 
day one, parents instill into 
their sons and daughters the 
importance of attain mg aca- 
demic excellence. They don't 
just say CMeveJs are impor- 
tant .... they mean it 
“This is bound to increase 


upon a time we could tell the 
pupils that if they worked 
hard and obtained good ex- 
amination results they would 
walk into a job of their choice. 
That is no longer true. We 
have lads with good (Hevd 
and A-fcrei passes who are on 
the dole and likely in remain 
there for the Unseeable 
future"

average. Its social environ- 
ment is distinctly middle 
class.The doctors, lawyers, 
businessmen, industrial man- 
agers and academics who are 
parents of Bramhall’s 1.750 
pupils have a sizeable say in 
their education, through an 
articulate parents' association. 

Nonetheless, some of the 
Gass of '86 are patently 
frightened over what the fu- 
ture holds; others are cau- 
tiously optimistic; some are 
aggressively determined 

They fall into three groups: 
• those leaving at July to find 


a job irrespective of results in 
GCE O-level 16-plus or CSE 
examinations; 

• those planning to spend two 
years in the sixth form before 
finding a job; 

• a smaller group who aim to 
go on to university at 18. 

The three groups have one 
thing in common: the need to 
achieve good exam results, 
without which the future is 
distinctly bleak-The Gass of 
'86 resents bitterly — and 
without exception — the fact 
that their five years' work 
might he valued by an exam 


lasting two and a half hours. 

Stephen Jones, the baby of 
the group who is 16 in July, 
knows it is essential to get at 
least four O-level passes. 
Without them he will have to 
go to a further education 
college and fresh studies be- 
fore he can pursue a career in 
banking or with a building 
society or estate agent 

Stephen, studying seven 
subjects, has had three weeks' 
work experience with the Ab- 
bey National. He met the 
careers teacher with his father 
and was urged to pursue his 


ambition through a Youth 
Training Scheme, doing two 
years’ work experience while 
qualifying for a day-release 
course to improve his academ- 
ic record, in case there is no 
fiiU-time job after the YTS. 

He realises that the only 
certain way of getting a job is 
to rfa™ one. "No one else is 
going to do it for me. rye got 
to make my own way in the 
world." 

He has written to four 
prospective employers and is 
encouraged that all four have 
replied — remarkable in an age 
when many youngsters pen 50 
or 60 applications without the 
courtesy of a single response. 

Stephen’s father Terence, a 
flight engineer with British 
Aerospace, has no illusions 
over what lies ahead. “Things 
are a lot harder than they 
were. When Stephen was 12, 1 
thought like many other peo- 
ple that the unemployment 
situation would have im- 
proved by tl re time he left 
school. But it hasn’t If any- 
thing it's getting worse and l 
cannot see things changing by 
the time Stephen’s 12-year-old 
brother has to find work." 

“At the moment I am 


optimistic, about his future. 
There is no doubt the name of 
Bramhall High carries quite a 
lot of weight with employers 
and, without wishing to sound 
snobbish, so does our 
address." 

Amanda Blackwell suspects 
that * her father, a midear 
engineer, disapproves of her 
plans. She intends to go on 
and acquire A-levels to pursue 
her ambition to be a law 
executive, without trying for 
university. 

Roger Marlow, a slightly- 
built self-assured fifth former, 
shares a love of computers 
with his father, a computer 
programmer. Though ihe 
parents' association has raised 
£7,000 of the £1 5.000 needed 
to equip tbe computer suite, 
Roger steers dear of the 
classroom technology. 

“You pick up more bad 
habits than knowledge- The 
teachers are only just learning 
themselves and are just one 
step ahead of the class; 1 pick 
np a lot more at home in the 
evenings with my father." 
Roger {dans to go on to 
university to study computer 
science— he has written. to 
Cambridge.

In the garden 


Gladioli can be planted now. 
Plant the conns, 6 inches deep 
in exposed gardens, over three 
fortnightly intervals for a 
succession of flowers over a long 
period. Seed potatoes can also 
be planted. 

If the ground is workable, sow 
early peas such as ‘Feltham 
First’, broad beans, carrots, 
onions and turnips. Sow a 
packet of mixed lettuces — the 
varieties take different times to 
mature, so you can be cutting 
lettuces over a period of three to 
four weeks. 

If we have a spell of warm 
weather, do not be tempted to 
buy tender plants Like tomatoes, 
marigolds, petunias, geraniums 
for planting outdoors. They 
should not be planted out until 
the end of May in the South, or 
the first or second week of June 
in the North. Tomatoes may of 
course be planted in a heated 
greenhouse this month. 

There is still time to lift and 
divide herbaceous plants — 
rudbeckias. heleniums, erig- 
crons. veronicas and the rest. 
Michaelmas daisies can be di- 
vided frequently — every year if 
you can spare the time. Plant 
strong single pieces from the 
outside of the old dump at 
about IS inches apart. RH

Hanson Trust emerged last 
night as the victor in the long- 
-■ running £28 billion takeover 
battle for Imperial Group. 

. Lord Hanson, chairman of 
Hanson Trust, said -he was 
delighted He added: “We 
want to' get together with the 
board of Imperial as soon as 
possible. For the benefit of all 
staff and shareholders the 
Imperial board should quickly 
recommend our offer to end 
the uncertainty”. - 

United Biscuits, the rival 
bidder. which was backed by 
the Imperial board, conceded 
defeat soon after 5pm, when it 
announced h had gained con- 
trol. of 34.f per cent of 
Imperial’s equity. UB needed 
at least 50 per cent accep- 
tances by 3pm yesterday, its 
final closing day. Its bid lapsed 
when it failed to get them, ' 

Although Hanson Trust did 
not announce that it had 
passed the 50 per cent mark, it 
has extended its bid, thus 
assuring it of victory. It was 
still counting last night and 
had more than;40 per cent It 
will announce its level of 
acceptances on Monday 
morning. 

Growth in 
UK ‘best 
in Europe’ 

From Bailey Morris 
Washington 

Britain .has outperformed 
its biggest European competi- 
tors since 1981, re-establishing 
hself as a strong worid leader, 
the Chancellor, Mr Nigel 
Lawson, said in a speech to the 
New York_ financial 
community. . 

He tokl members of the 
New York Economic Gub 
that, contrary to popular per- 
ception, Britain wa^no longer 
the “sick man of Europe,” but 
the leader.- , .. j- 

, 1 'JFhei Ch&caSor speak- 
ing before .another important ' 
meeting of world finance min- 
isters, at which they assessed 
the prospects of the poorest 
nations, which will require 
greatly increased resources 
This year. . ‘ - 
At the same meetinga battle 
broke out between the biggest 
industrialized nations and Ja- 
pan over the amount of 
resources each would pay into 
programmes for the poor. 

Mr Lawson said: “From 
1973 to 1982 we were^rt the 
bottom of the European 
growth table. But in 1983 we 
were top, second in 1984, and 
last year we were back on top 
again.” 

Britain was moving into its 
sixth year of growth in the 3 
per cent range despite a crip- 
pling year-long coal strike and 
the recent 50 per cent drop in 
the price of oil Mr Lawson 
told the financial managers 
and economists, who were 
eager to assess Britain's per- 
formance before big bang in 
the City. 

His optimistic address, in 
which he said that Britain had 
outperformed West Germany 
and France (which experi- 
enced lower rates of growth 
over the past five years) noted 
that by all measures, including 
employment. Britain . had 
come out on top. 

Mr Lawson said: “Since 
1 9S3 the number of people in 
work in France is down by ' 
about 350.000, in Italy up by 
100,000 and in Germany up 
by less than 200,000, but in 
Britain the figure is up by over 
600,000. We have created 
more jobs in the UK than in 1 
the rest of the European 
Community together.”-

Bid rivals: Sir Hector T -fling (left) and Lord Hanson 


A .disappointed Sir Hector 
Laing, chairman of UB, said 

an opportunity bad been lost 
for shareholders and the Brit- 
ish public to create a British 
food and tobacco company of 
sufficient size to compete with 
the American giants. He add- 
ed that UB was perfectly 
capable of looking after itself 
in the British ana American 
markets, but it needed 
Imperial's tobacco cash to 
push into new markets in the 
Third World. 

Echoing a theme of Sir John 
Harvey-Jones. chairman of 


1CI, he said: “Our horizons 
have shrunk industrially.” 

The chairman of Imperial 
Group, Mr Geoffrey Kent, 
who had fought hard against 
the Hanson takeover, said: 
“We very much regret the 
offer from United Biscuits has 
failed and the opportunity to 
build a major new British 
consumer goods group has 
been missed.” Imperial will be 
make a further statement on 
Monday after Hanson an- 
nounces its acceptances. 

United Biscuits stake of 
14.9 per cent in Imperial will 
either be sold to Hanson Trust 


or placed in the market. At 
yesterday's price of 363p for 
Imperial, up !9p. UB was 
showing a £49 million profit 
on its holding. 

Although it was not clear 
last night how many accep- 
tances Hanson bad won, it 
appeared that some large insti- 
tutions had failed to cast a 
vote at all. The level of United 
Biscuits acceptances was low- 
er than expected and indicated 
some institutions could not 
bring themselves to make a 
decision. Alternatively some 
small shareholders, confused 
by all the conflicting literature 
landing on their doormats, 
may not have taken any 
action. 

Hanson's extension does 
not include the all cash alter- 
native, which at 293p was well 
below Imperial's share price 
and had been taken up by only 
a very small- proportion of 
shareholders. 

Hanson Trust, the acquisi- 
tive conglomerate, won its last 
major takeover in January 
when it bought SCM corpora- 
tion in the United States for 
nearly SI billion (£700 mil- 
lion). after an even more 
bloody battle.

US economics chief attacks 
Britain's 5% tax on ADRs 


Mr Walter Wriston, the 
chairman of President 
Reagan’s Economic Policy 
Advisory Board, yesterday at- 
tacked . the British Govern- 
ment over the proposed 5 per 
cent tax on American Deposi- 


tary Receipts. 

He said it was an example of 
how governments make “fu- 
tile efforts ” to enact laws in 
the mistaken belief that the 
measures will only affect their 
sector of a global market. 

Mr Wriston’s remarks came 
a day after Mr Nigel Lawson, 
the Chancellor, made it clear 
he wawmi badong down over 
the tax.. 

Speaking in New York on 
his way back from the Interim 
Committee meeting of tbe 
International Monetary Fund, 
Mr Lawson said that despite 
the reduction in stamp duty 


By Teresa Poole 

on transfers of securities there 
was still an incentive for large 
institutions in Britain to trans- 
act their business in New York 
where there is no stamp duty 
at all. 

He said: “If they are going 
to do that then they have to 
pay a season ticket.” 

Mr Wriston, a former chair- 
man of Citicorp, told an 
audience in London: “Like the 
American interest equaliza- 
tion lax which crippled our 
New York market, the new 
ADR tax will have a similar 
perverse effect on London asa 
great trading centre.” 

In America, he said, the 
1962 law which was designed 
to discourage access to the 
New York capital market 
actually resulted in many 
Americans moving to London 
and helped to create a bigger. 


Stock Conversion plans 
talks with Stocldey 

By Judith Huntley 

Stock Conversion and Haslemere Estates or the 


Stock Conversion and 
Stockley, the property compa- 
nies are due to meet early 
next week in an amicable at- 
mosphere to discuss the oiler 
tabled by Stock Conversion to 
its unwelcome 26.5 per cent 
shareholder. But persistent ru- 
mours, in the market that Sir 
Jeffrey Sterling's P & O Group 
is about to launch a bid for 
Stock Conversion could mean 
events overtake them. Stock- 
Conversion's share price has 
been bouyed op on bid hopes 
for days and stood at 670p, a 
iOp rise, at dose yesterday. 

None of the property com- 
panies- feel safe after 
Rodainco, the Dutch 
developer's successful bid for 


ealier takeover of Capital & 
Counties by Liberty Life, the 
South African insurance 
company. 

Tbe property company has 
spent much time and energy 
shaking off its sleepy image. 
The fall in interest rates could 
see Stock Conversion coming 
to the market for up to £100 
million by way of a long term 
debenture issue. 

It has a £60 million rolling 
development programme over 
the next three years. But it will 
have to pull out all the asset 
revaluation stops to ward off a 
predator. Its present conserva- 
tive valuation method does 
not include dealing properties. 


Broadside by Guinness 


Mr Janies Gulliver's Argyll 
supermarkets group was yes- 
terday accused of breaching 
the Takeover Code and 
“puffing” its share price as the 
bitter, four-month old battle 
for control of Distillers en- 
tered its final week. 

The claims were made by 
Guinness, which is rivalling 
Argyll's £28 billion bid for 
-Distillers. 


Mr Roger Seelig of Morgan

chant bank, said that Argyll's

more competitive market in 
Britain. 

Speaking at a British Insti- 
tute of Management/No- 
lan/Norton seminar on 
information technology and 
wealth creation, be said the 
reality of the global market- 
place, tied together by an 
electronic infrastructure, 
would not go away. 

The proposed 5 per cent 
duty on the creation of new 
ADRs has been criticized as 
protectionist by a number of 
major British companies in- 
cluding ICi, Hanson Trust, 
Glaxo. Cadbury Schweppes, 
and British Telecom. 

They also argue that its 
introduction will provide both 
financial and commercial ad- 
vantages to foreign competi- 
tors. 

Mortgage 
surge for 
societies 

By Lawrence Lever 

Strong demand for home 
loans is shown in the figures 
for last month from the Build- 
ing Societies Association. Tbe 
abolition of differentials and 
reductions in the mortgage 
interest rates meant that the 
societies promised loans 
worth £2.8 billion — the 
second highest monthly figure 
on record. 

About 100,000 new mort- 
gages were promised to 
homebuyerslasi month 
andpro visional BSA estimates 
show that about 89.000 home 
loans were advanced, the 
highest number since last 
October. Total advances rose 
lo £2.4 billion 

Net retail receipts of £657 
million last month were the 
lowest for the year and more 
than £130 million down on 
the previous month. Mr Rich- 
ard Weir, secretary-general of 
the BSA, said yesterday that 
this was expected because of 
the third call on British 
Telecom shareholders. 

Mr Weir added that the fail 
in retail funds was “more than 
compensated for by the in- 
crease in wholesale funding.”

Work ob a new airport in 
London's Docklands, just six 
miles from the City of London, 
is due to start within the next 
few days. The airport is ex- 
pected to be operational next

mostly businessmen travelling 

-between London and various

It will also fly to Birming-

domestic destitutions. 

The work will be carried out 
at a cost of- £18. million by 


John Mowiem, which will own 
the lease and also manag e the 
airport once the building is 
completed. 

The company is pfenning to

The currency market 
looks for a victim 

4ieel Lawson's bullish remarks an nlavers the market could easily tOD 


Nigel Lawson's bullish remarks on 
interest rates in the United States 
have, at least temporarily, given 
foreign exchange markets something 
to go for. At the the time of the EMS 
realignment last weekend, the dollar 
looked relatively strong. But with 
markets now expecting the US to lead 
the next phase of worid interest rate 
reductions — with a cut in the 
discount rate now clearly imminent 
— the dollar is looking the weakest of 
the main currencies. 

Sterling rose ltt cents against the 
US currency by the London close 
yesterday, and the marie and yen 
registered even stronger gains. In 
Washington, the Japanese finance 
minister made no response to calls by 
the British Chancellor for a further 
rise in the yen. The market's inter- 
pretation is that silence gives consent. 

The pound began the week well, 
gaining from the general boost to 
European currencies given by the 
EMS realignment, but also from a 
strengthening in oil prices. The cut in 
British bank base rates had little 
impact on the currency markets, in a 
climate in which all main industrial 
countries were getting together to 
lower worldwide interest rates. 

This half a percentage point cut in 
bank base rates is still not seen as 
enough by the money markets, 
though the Bank of England made a 
gesture of concern with high Sterling 
M3 figures by braking the decline in 
money market rates on Thursday. By 
Friday, it seemed to have come to the 
view that it had paid sufficient lip- 
service to the Sterling M3 target, and 
money market rates eased again. 
Three-month inter-bank rate fell to 
about 10% per cent on Friday 
afternoon, clearly discounting a fur- 
ther half percentage point off bank 
base rates. 

The gilt market benefitted strongly 
all week from falling interest rates, 
and the Bank of England seized the 
opportunity to push out four taplets 
of £100 million each yesterday. The 
maturities ranged from 1990 up to 
2016. 

But there is still a great deal of 
uncertainly in the foreign exchange 
markets, and until they have digested 
the somewhat delphic utterances of 
finance ministers this past week, the 
direction of currency speculation will 
remain uncertain. 

Passing the mortgage 

A homegrown secondary mortgage 
market in Britain now looks set to 
become one of the fastest growing 
markets in the City, developed 
almost exclusively by outsiders who 
have spotted the opportunity. 

Ironically, only a few months ago 
the established mortgage operators — 
building societies and banks — were 
arguing that the growth of such a 
market, akin to the securitized mort- 
gage market in the United States, 
could never happen here. Even if no 
one else joins the current handful of 


players the market could easily top £2 
billion within the next 18 months. 

So far it is developing in two ways. 
The first, pioneered by National 
Home Loans Corporation which was 
launched six months ago, simply 
involves the purchase by NHL of the 
home loan portfolios of customers 
who include local authorities, banks 
and insurance companies eager to 
move a relatively illiquid investment 
off their balance sheets. NHL takes 
over the full risk and administration 
of the mortgages and sometimes 
repackages groups of loans to sell on 
to other investors. 

Thai is an early and somewhat 
unsophisticated stage in the market's 
development, but this week a subsid- 
iary of Salomon Brothers entered the 
field with a plan to bundle mortgages 
into securities and sell them world- 
wide. The new company, Mortgage 
Corporation, aims to lend and 
securitize around £500 million this 
year and considerably more than that 
next year. 

The sudden appearance of a 
secondary market reflects the intense 
interest in UK mortgages shown by 
investors from as far afield as Canada 
and Japan as well as others closer to 
home. It gives them a way ofbuilding 
up sterling exposures in a secure and 
profitable market without the need 
fora retail presence in Britain. At the 
same time it gives those institutions 
wbo have found access lo the primary 
home loan market a way of divesting 
some of their exposure to make way 
for more primary lending. 

For ordinary borrowers an active 
secondary market almost certainly 
means an even greater abundance of 
funds to borrow, but there are 
inevitable problems. To reassure 
borrowers the new market will have 
to develop guarantees that the 
responsibility for, say, setting interest 
rates and foreclosing on people who 
do not repay will remain with an 
identifiable lender and not be sold 
along with the underlying asset. 
Although rising, the number of 
foreclosures is still tiny and no one 
wants to see a new breed of ruthless 
investor entering the market who is 
willing to foreclose at the drop of a 
hat 

These fears were highlighted when 
Barclays canvassed the opinions of its 
borrowers on the sale of their 
mortgages and received an unequivo- 
cal thumbs down to the idea late last 
year. 

The new market will also have to 
develop a system of rate fixing which 
borrowers trust One is the old 
discretionary method which leaves 
the decision to the judgement of the 
lender. But another which could find 
favour would be to link the mortgage 
rate to a percentage above the 
London Interbank Offered Rate.

Crumbs of comfort 
for Imperial losers 


The denouement of the long 
drawn out battle for Imperial 
Group, which gives victory to 
Hanson Trust, has interesting 
implications for the share OUpOFt 
price performance of both 
companies. 


grand plan has failed, bid 
speculation may well re- 
emerge. 


United Biscuits shares 
closed 3p up on the day at 
267p and Hanson's also rose, 
4p to 184p„ 

Had the result been the 
other way both share prices 
could have been expected to 
fail - Hanson's because it 
was discounting victory and 
anticipating quick financial 
rewards to be won from 
Imperial. United Biscuits' be- 
cause a smaller company 
would have been taking over 
a larger one, allowing a small 
degree of initial dilution. 

Hanson Trust's shares, al- 
though they have risen in the 
Iasi few weeks, have been 
through a prolonged period of 
u nderperformance. 

At 1 84p they are trading on 
a historic p/e ratio of 1 3 and a 
prospective p/e of 11 fully 
'diluted, assuming pretax 
profits this year of £330 
million. 

The rating is not demand- 
ing for a company with 
Hanson's record and 
yesterday's share movement 
can be expected to accelerate. 
Hanson has always had a 
reputation for extracting 
quick benefits from its 
acquisitions. 

With the Americans al- 
ready renting Hanson on 
optimism after the SCM pur- 
chase — which is generally 
seen as a good buy — the 
addition of Imps will take the 
process further. 

Whatever the questions 
raised during this bid about 
organic growth and the tread- 
mill of growth by larger and 
larger acquisitions, Hanson's 
future looks secure for at least 
the next three years. 

United Biscuiis at least has 
the consolation prize-of mak- 
ing a handsome £49 million 
profit on its 14.9 per cent 
stake in Imperial, more than 
enough to pay the costs of the 
battle, which should come to 
under £20 million. 

Imperial shares closed up 
I9p at 363p last nighL 

Now that United Biscuits’ 


Duport was one of several 
engineering stocks in demand 
on the stock market yester- 
day. Its recovery from the 
recession had been widely 
appreciated but it announced 
that Midland Bank had con- 
verted its holding of prefer- 
ence shares, taken up five 
years ago in exchange for 
debt. into ordinary shares. 

About 10 million shares, 
representing 18 per cent of 
the enlarged capital, were 
placed at 95p. In the market 
the share price rose 2p to 
I06p. 

Duport also announced in- 
creased profits of £5.3 million 
before tax for the year to 
January 31. against £2.44 
million last year. Of the £2.9 
million increase loss elimina- 
tion accounted for £1.6 
million. 

The rest of the improve- 
ment reflects the good perfor- 
mance of the two plastics 
businesses. Swish curtain 
rails and Bridgiown foam 
mouldings. Vi-Spring. the 
bed company, also did well 
but there was a downturn in 
the castings and forging com- 
panies. 

In addition there was good 
progress on the borrowings 
front, with gearing now below 
14.5 per cent. 

The shares were also sup- 
ported by bid talk, which was 
rife in the sector, after F H 
Tomkins's bid on Thursday 
for Pegler-Hattersley. The ru- 
mour was that Williams 
Holdings, which failed in its 
bid to buy McKechnie Broth- 
ers, was now interested in 
Duport whose plastics inter- 
ests would undoubtedly be 

attractive. 

There were also question 
marks over the interest of J 
Saviiie Gordon, another Mid- 
lands company, which opted 
to maintain its shareholding 
in Duport at 6 per cent by 
taking up shares in the plac- 
ing. kail points to continuing 
activity in the sector. 

United Scientific 

Even in bull markets the rise 
in share prices is not indis- 
criminate. Not all stocks have 
been enjoying the boom. 


United Scientific Holdings 
has been a dull performer — 
the share price stands at I45p 
compared with this year's 
high of 190p. 

The long-awaited recovery 
in USH profits is unlikely to 
materialize in this financial 
year. The company's strategy 
Is to build up long-term 
relationships with foreign 
governments, with increasing 
emphasis on non oil-produc- 
ing countries. The acquisition 
of Sopelem in France exem- 
plifies this approach. The 
strategy is still very much in 
place, 

To illustrate the difficult 
conditions under which the 
company labours it is not 
necessary to look any further 
than the si ill-to-be-signed In- 
donesian agreement. Poten- 
tially. this is a contract for 
about £250 million worth of 
armoured fighting vehicles 
for USH's AJvis subsidiary. A 
feature of the contract is that 
basic steel fabrication would 
take place in Indonesia while 
the high technology compo- 
nents would be shipped from 
Britain. 

A joint venture contract 
like this works to the 
advantage of the purchasing 
government, by increasing 
employment opportunities 
for the local population, and 
to that of the equipment 
manufacturer, in cementing 
relationships with the pur- 
chaser. Unfortunately, many 
prospective purchasers of 
arms are the oil-producing 
nations which are feeling the 
pinch from the oil price 
slump. The requirement for 
these arms has not gone 
away, but contracts are being 
deferred 

Perhaps more serious is 
USH's difficulties with its 
American subsidiary. Lack of 
orders is not the problem. But 
the market has become ex- 
tremely price competitive, 
and stemming losses which 
could cause the interim re- 
sults to drop to near £3 
million compared with £5.3 
million last year is a priority. 
The company is tackling this. 
Meanwhile, analysts have 
downgraded their expecta- 
tions Tor the year to Septem- 
ber. 1986. Keith Hodgkinson, 
of L.MesseL the broker, is 
anticipating pretax profits for 
the year of £9 million, com- 
pared with £10.1 million. 


STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Account 



The long hard fought battle 
between Hanson Trust and 
United Biscuits to gain control 
of Imps reached its climax 
when the Imps share price 
dosed 16p higher at 356 as 
Hanson looked a likely 
winner. 

Elsewhere cheaper money 
hopes and the current spate of 
mergers continued to keep 
share prices bubbling with the 
FT30 share index gaining 10.4 
points to 141 1.9 and the FT- 
SE 100 share index up 3.S at 
1694.1 to end an eventful two 
week account. 

Leading shares were largely 
neglected at the expense of 
many good features among 
second rate issues, stock short- 
age a factor behind many of 
the bigger rises which exceed- 
ed 30p m some cases.

by recent good results from

There's one word that's common to most of Europe at the 
moment. 

,i-J> European markets rising 39%* on average 

last vear there's no mistaking tbe potential. 

' And now. Save &. Prosper lone of Britain s largest unit 
mist groups, believe the time is right to bring you a new 
interpretation of the European theme. 

Europe. With a higher safety' factor. 

Here's why. 

\ FEW WORDS ON WHY 
vnr 9HOIJLD INVEST^ 

All the signs in Europe are adding up to excellent long- 

lcm siodc markets that arc now artracring 

more and more investors both domestic and foreign 
Td. despite last year's gains, are still cheap compared 
with other major markets. 

•Improving economies with inflation and interest rates 
under control. 

•Increasing productivity. , 

•And company profits on their way up - and now helped 

bv lower oil prices. 

There's ever.' chance of excellent returns. 

But these stock markets are relatively small. lEven Ger- 
rnanv. tbe largest economy in Europe, has a stock market o . 


one third the size of Britain. ) And small markets can be volatile 
-which is why our experts are now recommending a new invest- 
ment mix. 

THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE. 

Our new fund will invest primarily in the major markets of 
Continental Europe in high-yielding equities (mainly of larger 
companies), bonds and convertibles. 

A mix that is different from most other European funds. 
Because it stffl aims for high growth. But also includes the high- 
yielding equities and fixed interest content for income-and, as 
importantly, for a degree of safety which we believe is sensible 
in these smaller markets. 

And we ought to know. As the first unit trust group to 
launch a European fund 22 years ago, we've had plenty of 

experience in getting lhe best out of Europe. 

FIXED PRICE OFFE R UNTIL 2nd MAY 

.BELLE . . BIEN . ■ WUNDERBAR . . . ) 

You can invest in the new European Income & Growth 
Fund from £250 or from £20 a month - and until 2nd May we'll 
be holding the price of units to 50p. 

Just complete the coupon or talk to your professional- 

adviser. • . 

You should remember that the price or units and income 
from them can go down as well as up. 

But we believe with this new European investment mix, 
the signs are all good. In anyone's language.

sorry story for savers 


t INVESTMENT A 

The 300,000 policyholders of 
United _ Kingdom Provident 
Institution received a . nasty 
Shock when they . woke up on 
Monday to find their compa- 
ny was in difficulties. 

The £1,700 million . Salis- 
bury-based mutual company, 
now being rescued by Friends’ 
Provident, is in . trouble over 
the valuation of some of its 
investments, most notably 
around £50 million of unquot- 
ed shares and ofl exploration 
stocks in the United States.' 

The immediate result will 
. be a suspension of: bonus 
payments on the with-profit 
life and pensions contracts, 
with no bonus, being paid in 
1986 agd deferment until the 
end of 1987. 

This effectively makes rt~ 
impossible for the company to 
carry on. as no investment 
adviser will place any new ' 
business with it — hence the 
merger with Friends* 
Provident 

But what of existing policy- 
holders? Given that these are 
all savings, type contracts, 
what should they tlo? 

Much will depend on how 
long- policyholders have been ' 
paying premiums and how 
near to maturity the contracts 
are.' But one thing is dear — it 
win pay to wait . at least 
another week before making a 
decision as . announcements 
are expected from Friends’ 
Provident about the future of 
the UKPI contracts, some of 
which are expected to be' 
discontinued anyway.^ 

Two points to bear in mmd 
on the witb-profit endowment - 
policies are that king standing 
policyholders will be receiving 
Life Assurance Premium Re- 
lief (LAPR) on these contracts 
and the value of this, may 
compensate for the reduction 
or loss of bonuses on die 
UKPI contracts. 

Secondly, for policyholders 
in their fifties who have had 
the -UKPI contracts for some 
time, the cost of replacing the 
life cover at this age couid.be. 
substantial — and in some 
cases impossible if the ~ 
policyholder's health has dete- 
riorated over the period. 

However, the situation fin 1 
more recent policy holders of 
both life and pensions con- 
tracts is not so clear. 

It may well pay to make the 
policies “paid up** and start 
again with a new company. 


This, means that no new 
money is invested in the 
UKPI- contracts but policy- 
holders will derive the benefits 
of the bonuses already attrib- 
uted to the policies — and 
these cannot be taken away. 

It- is also worth bearing in 
mind that Friends* Provident 
may well, make the UKPI life 
funds closed funds, which 
means they will take on no 
new busrness. With the over- 
heads of staff and marketing 
costs gone. -these closed funds 
could perform very well for 
policyholders. 

“Fortunately we didn’t have 
leo many policyholders in 
UKPL” says investment ad- 
viser Stephen Lansdown -of 
BriSitoI-based Hargreaves 
Landsown. ‘ 

- “Depending on what 
emerges in tile next week or so 
we are going to have to decide 
what to advise our clients. 

“The life funds are going to 
have the problem of s hrinkag e 
for some time to come, and I 
: think- fdr those policyholders 
who have taken out UKPI 


His clients mostly bought 
policies many years ago and 
will therefore incur substantial 
costs in obtaining new life 
cover. - 

“But we have decided not to 
put any new business into the 
UKPI contracts, ”he says. 

He believes that more re- 
cent policyholders should 
probably make the policies 
paid up, but cautions against a 
hasty decision, recommend- 
ing policyholders to wait and 
see what emerges from the 
merger with Friends’ 
Provident. 

Friends* Provident has con- 
firmed that it will initially 
keep the UKPI life funds 
separate from its own but a 
merger with Friends** Provi- 
dent life funds is a possibility, 
provided it' can be done 
without detriment to Friends* 
Provident policyholders. 

However, this is something 
of a no-win situation for 
UKPI poticybokieis, since if 
the life fond cannot be merged 
with Friends' Provident life 
fond without detriment to the 


‘You are not likely to get a 
good return on your money’ 


policies relatively recently, 
they Ought to ranntter making 
them paid up. 

“ I can’t see that there wHl 
be much benefit to policyhold- 
ers in staying. You are not 
likely to get much in tile way 
of returns on your money.” 

. . , However, he does point out 
that this advice does not apply 
for those who. are holding 
policies due to mature within 
three io five years, 

He says: “You might as well 
go on paying because you win 
lose life assurance premium 
relief if you discontinue and 
start with a new company, and 
the cost of getting the fife 
cover - in your fifties win 
outweigh the potential disad- 
vantages of continuing to pay 
the premiums. 

“If you go anywhere else it 
wifi cost you money.’V 

He also points out that fin- 
many investors, the UKPI 
contract win not be their only 
policy, so the situation for 
some wfll not be quite so dire. 

Pensions adviser Patrick 
McNamee of PM & A takes a 
cautious view. “I think most 
of my policyholders will just 
have to stick with it,” be says. 


Friends’ Provident policy- 
holders, then it does not say 
much for the inve stm ent s in 
the UKPI fond and policy- 
holders will not have much to 
look forward to. 

John Greener of Richards 
Longstaff also counsels a 
“wait and see” approach. 

He says: “We can’t actually 
make a decision today. We are 
not advising people to do one 
thing or another until more 
details of the merger are 
known. In any case, it might 
not be possible to continue 
with some policies.” 

He is expecting the deposit 
administration pension con- 
tracts to be discontinued. 

These are effectively fixed 
interest investments used by 
investors who have only a few 
years to go to retirement and 
therefore cannot afford to take 
rhanrpg m the equity market 

Richards Longstaff has 
quite a few long-standing 
with-profits policyholders, 
and because of the age of the 
policyholders and the loss of 
LAPR, will probably advise 
clients to continue paying the 
premiums. 

“The LAPR will be worth 


more than the temporary sus- 
pension of bonuses," says Mr 
Greener. 

He also believes there might 
be something to be said Tor 
carrying on with the contracts 
if the UKPI life funds are 
made closed funds. “Some of 
the old Caledonian funds 
which are closed funds are 
doing frightfully well," he 
points ouL 

But the question which all 
life company investors must 
now be asking is whether it 
could happen elsewhere if it 
could happen to such a highly 
respected mutual company as 
United Kingdom Provident. 

“Yes, I think it could,” 
commented Stephen 
Lansdown. “I have been say- 
ing for some time now that 
bonus projections are 
unreafctidy high-” 

Most life companies are 
projecting future bonuses for- 
ward at today’s rates. Many 
experts have pointed out that 
today's bonus rates are histori- 
cally high and with lower 
inflation it is not reasonable to 
suppose that investment re- 
turns will remain at today’s 
high levels. 

“1 think there is an inherent 
danger in investment manag- 
ers chasing today’s high re- 
turns and it is quite possible 
that another company could 
get into similar difficulties, 
said Mr Greener." 

Where does he recommend 
investors with new money to 
commit to place their cash? 

“We are recommending 
Norwich Union, Scottish 
Widows. Scottish Equitable, i 
Equitable Life and Clerical ; 
Medical & General, says Mr 
Greener.” 

Patrick McNamee takes a 
similar view: “I am sure there 
are other companies which 
could get into a similar situa- 
tion. Many companies have' 
spent a lot of money chasing 
new business — particularly on 
the unit-linked side.” 

And he points out that the 
pressure to keep up the invest- 
ment performance is greater 
now than ever before. Fund 
managers, aware that their 
performance is being moni- 
tored, may wefl be tempted to 
take unwarranted risks. 

He is going totally for unit- 
linked contracts where the 
investment performance can 
be seen in the quoted unit 
prices in the daily papers.

The first unit trust 
designed to tap the strength 
of the German economy 


Last year GT launched the first unit trust to invest 
exclusively in German equities. A unique opportunity to 
participate in the free world's third largest economy, the 
world’s fourth largest stock market and one of the worlds 
consistently strongest currencies. 

Here, for the first time; wasa fund created specifically 
to take advantage of the political stability, financial j 

strength and commitment to sheer hard work 
which has made Germany the most .■ - ; 

successful industrial nation in ■■ f-’V -'it/ 

Euro P e - . 


WILL GERMANY’S ^ / 
STRENGTH CONTINUE? 

Germany’s economic, monetary and 
social climate has encouraged steady Iong-terrn^^ 
industrial growth. As a result, German industry confidently 
continues to invest in its own future prosperity 

With an inflation rate now below Kt>, coupled with 
low interest rates, the German economy could hardly be 
looking healthier. 

German manufacturing industry, with its strong, stable 
management and its excellent industrial relations record, is 
reaping the rewards of the ever growing reputation of its 
products in world markets. 

WHY IS GT THE NATURAL LEADER 
IN THIS VENTURE? 

Since GT Germany Fund was launched in September 
last year the offer price ofUnits has risen by over 39%. 

Of the jC 3 billion under GTs management, some 
£400 million is in European Markets where GT have been 
actively investing for many years. 


The GT Europe Fund was launched in 1982 and was 
the best performing Unit Trust of any kind in the UJC. over 
the three years tO 1 February 1986. (Source- .Money Manatsrmewj 

GT was the first to spot the dramatic changes in the 
German market and the first to be convinced of the funda- 
mental values available in that economy. 

WHY IS THE TIME RIGHT 
. - X FOR GERMAN INVESTMENT? 

• \ GT believes that the long-term trend 

■ \ isstill highly promismg.andthatGernuuiy 
is an essential part of any portfolio. As a 
’ . .s group, GTs policy has always been to

I particularly those paying high-

vour full quota of £5.000 
worth of 31st issue, dont 
delay. There is every chance 
that another reduction in nv* 
terest raxes will precipitate the 
withdrawal of the current 
issue. 

Similarly, it is worth signing 
up for yeariy plan if you pay 
higher rate tax. The return is 
8.19 per rent tax-free and the 
maximum investment is £200 
a month. It is a one-year 
regular savings scheme wiucn 
converts into a four-year rav- 
ings certificate. Here too the 
raw is fixed at the level at 
which vou sign up - but it 
could be reduced for future 
investors, so don’t miss the 
opportunity. 

Finally, for the non-taxpay- 
er, the National Savings Bank 
investment account remains 
the only onshore investment 
allowed to pay interest with- 
out deduction of tax and is 
therefore the only suitable 
investment vehicle. It is pay- 
ing 1L5 per cent.

but he will sot take up the 
floorboards or burrow into the 
roof cavity. 

Paying for this extra service 
brings some come-back on the 
surveyor. But house buyers 
■ who have relied on the basic 
valuation and have bought a 
house in poor condition and 
subsequently tried to sue the 
surveyor have lost 

BiH Taylor of RICS says; 
“In Stevenson versus the Na- 
tionwide the buyer chose the 
cheapest option with all the 
exclusion clauses. He was 
offered a choice but he chose 
the cheapest and he got what 
he paid for, which was very 
little. 

“I know people who spend 
more money inspecting a mo- 
tor car than they would spend 
on a house even though it 
costs ten times as much. It is 
the biggest purchase most 
people make: They should 
take professional advice." 

But even a bouse buyer’s 
report will not give you a legal 
come-back for any defects 
which appear later. The sur- 
vey is less complete than the 
full structural survey and thus 


gives you less protection. But 
you will have a case against 
the surveyor if he misses 
anything which is supposed to 
be covered in the house 
buyer's report 

Anyone considering buying 
a large or old house, which is 
likely to have a major defect 
or is for from standar d should 
have a full structural survey.

valuation or house buyer's 
report. But a faJJ structural 
survey will tend to be a 
narrative report rather than a 
question and answer form — 
and the cost will have to be 
negotiated with the surveyor. 

A basic valuation, which 
building societies are forced 
by law to undertake, will cost 
about £50 for a £40,000 house 
with a house buyer's report 
costing £125 and a full struc- 
tural survey about £200-£300. 

House buyers in the north 
are much more reluctant to 
have a full structural survey 
than those in the south (except 
in Manchester for some rea- 
son), but the intermediate 
house buyer's report intro- 
duced nearly five years ago 
now accounts for about 60 per 
cent of the Halifax's buyers 
with 30 per cent relying on the 
valuation report and 10 per 
cent taking a full survey. 

A valuation would not men- 
tion a crack in a garage wall as 
this would not affect the value 
of the house although it might 
cost quite a bit to repair - and 
the house buyer might like to 
know about iL That would be 
covered by a house buyer’s 


report but details about 
cracked bathroom tiles and 
rotten floorboards under fitted 
carpets would only be re- 
vealed by a full structural 
survey. 

Joe Harley, a surveyor of 
Bristol, said young first-lime 
buyers often took the attitude 
Svfe . that if a vafua-

1 limited 

function of the report They 
also, he said, tend to forget 
that the money they are 
borrowing to buy the property 
is their money and the proper- 
ty is their responsibility. 

The surveyors hope the 
leaflet will be given to buyers 
before they even fill out the 
mortgage application form. 
They must hope, naturally, 
that more buyers will use 
them to undertake surveys 
and they wilt avoid the wran- 
gles which result when people 
believe they are getting more 
than they are.

ment mix. 

THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE. 

Our new fond trill invest primarily in the major markets of 
Continental Europe in high-yielding equities (mainly of larger 
companies), bonds and convertibles. 

A wri* Hm* is different from most other European funds. 
Because it stiB aims for high growth. But also includes the high- 

yielding equities and fixed interest content for income - and, as 

importantly, for a degree erf safety which we believe is sensible 
in these smaller markets. 

And we ought to know. As the first unit trust group to 
launch a European fund 22 years ago, we’ve had plenty of 
experience in getting the best out of Europe. 

FIXED PRICE OFFER UNTIL 2nd MAY

You can investin the new European Income & Growth 
Fund from £250 or from £20 a month -and until 2nd May we'll 
be bolding the price of units to 50p. 

' Just complete foe coupon or talk to your professional 
adviser. 

You should remember that the price of units and income 
from them can go down as well as up. 

But we believe with this new European investment mix, 
the signs are afl good. In anyone’s language:

How clothes fit the bill 

C ALLOWANCES ) 


The opportunity to enhance 
your wardrobe as a perk to 
your job is attractive, and it is 
surprising that more individ- 
uals do not take advantage of 
the income tax allowances. 

The Inland Revenue has a 
number of allowances that 
have been agreed over the 
years, often negotiated with 
the unions. For example, 
building workers such as join- 
ers and carpenters can claim 
£75 a year, stonemasons £55, 
nnH carders and overlookers 
in the textile industry £55. A 
lace maker is permitted £30 
and a railway wagon repairer 
£70. 

The highest allowance is 
£ 1 10 for seamen carpenters on 
passenger lines. 

It is an extension of this 
principle that is now attracting 
higher raze taxpayers and 
companies looking to enhance 
remuneration packages with- 
out passing on all the tax 
liability to the employee. 

There are two basic ap- 
proaches adopted by the Rev- 
enue. For employees of a 
company, taxed under Sched- 


ule said duties, there may be 
deducted from the emolu- 
ments to be assessed the 
expenses so necessarily in- 
curred and defrayed”. 

The addition of hie term 
“necessity" makes it harder 
for employees to make claims 


first loaned as a benefit less 
any sums paid by the employ- 
ee during the leasing period 
which have been taxed. 

For instance, if a suit at a 
purchase value of £100 is 
bought by the company and 
ibe staff member pays £20 a 


tor employees to masc cuu iu» /■ 

than lire srtfemployed and, of 

course, the rule applies to all use of it, the employee pays 


ber 1982 , but ihe ji 
was overturned by the 
of Lords in July 1983.

states that if an employee is 
obliged to “expend money 
wholly, exclusively and neces- 
sarily in the performance of 


wuiaw, Mb iimv " ' 

expenses, hot just expenditure 
on clothes. 

For a feiriy wide range of 
industries, ihe Revenue has 
agreed to accept what are 
termed “consolidated 
allowances”. This is where 
staff are given a flat ram 
deduction from their tax li- 
abilities to compensate them 
for the upkeep of their work- 
ing clothes, as the examples 
given illustrate. 

The Revenue will permit 
other cases to be settled on a 
personal basis by the individ- 
ual where the article of cloth- 
ing is distinctive, such as a 
badge or insignia affixed. 

The more recent develop- 
ment has been where a compa- 
ny offers “finance” clothing 
for an employee, and then 
arranges to lease it to the 
member of staff. 

For tax purposes, the Reve- 
nue says the liability is the 
difference between the sum 
paid for the suit and the higher 
of either the market value at 
the date of transfer or the 
market value of the asset when

Hardly a week passes these 
days without further develop- 
ments in the structure of the 
self-regulatory regime which is 
supposed to be in place and 
running by -January 3 next 
year. 

This week confused follow- 
ers of the comings and goings 
of the so-called sdf-trgalatory 
organizations (SROs) have 


had to come to grips with yet 
another acronym — EBRO. 

This stands for the Regula- 
tory Organization for Invest- 
ment Brokers, Managers and 
Dealers, and is bora out of a 
union between two SROs, 
reducing the-number of potent 
'tnd* SROs- “to- si x. The t wo - 
SROs merging are NASDIM, 
the National Association, of 
Dealers and Investment Man- 
agers. and LUT1RO, the Life 
and Unit Trust Intermediaries 
Regulatory Organization. 

Amid all tiw confusion of 
new and disappearing names, 


what is actually happening in 
text of 5 


the context of specific mea- 
sures to protect investors 
against fraud and insolvency 
of investment businesses, au- 
thorized or otherwise? 

Lawyers acting for the Secu- 
rities and Investments Board 
are poring over the details of a 
compensation scheme which 
the board is setting up to 
protect investors who lose 
money as a result of the 
insolvency of a business ait 
thorized under the new regula- 
tory framework. 

The proposed scheme 
would provide compensation 
up to £30,000 per customer 
from a central fund which 
would be set op through levies 
from investment businesses 
whose customers qualify for 
compensation. 

It has not yet been decided 
whether, within the £30,000 
limit, claims would be met in 
fufl, or whether in fact claims 
would be met up to a percent- 
age, say 90 per cent, with 
£30.000 as the maximum. 

The idea is that only indi- 
vidual private investors will 

S * tfy for compensation. The 
will not, for instance, be 
used to compensate profes- 
sional customers or other 
investment businesses. 

The scheme will, subject to 
the exceptions mentioned be- 
low, apply to all investment 
businesses which seek the 
authorization required under 
the Financial Services Bill 
directly from the SIB. 

It win also be open to any 
SRO which wants to partici- 
pate in it. Should an SRO not 
want to join- SIB’s scheme, it 
must have one of its own 
which provides protection of 
at least an equivalent standard 
to customers of its member 
firms. 

It is worth noting that the. 
protection given by the in- 
tended scheme is much better 
than that given to individuals 
in the case of the collapse ofr 
say, a bank or building society, 
both of which events fan 
outside the scheme’s scope. 

Under' the Banking Act 
1979, the maximum compen- 
sation available where a hank 
or licensed deposit laker col- 
lapses is only £7,500. This 
applies to personal deposits, 

the precise rule being that you 

qualify for compensation of 
75 per cent of deposits up to 

f!nnffi' IfyOUbadmore ^ 
£10,0(X) you are confined 
nevertheless to 75 per cent of 

words to £7,500. 

Joint depositors are treated 
as having separate deposits 

viduaj beneficial interests in 
the relevant accounts, 


Excluded from this com - 
pensation scheme are tbeTSB. 
National Savings and Channel . 
islands and lsfeof Man banks. 

The building societies, ac- 
confii^ to the Building Sodttt- 
ics Bid, were going to provide 
a compeasationscbemewhich 
would provide only the -same 
level of compensation as. the 
banks. Under present vbfcm-' 
- tary ar ra ngements. they cur- 
rently provide a higher level “ 
90 per cent of deposits up to 
£I0,Q00 l 

However, in the committee 
stage of die ' Bifl there was 
stanheh. opposition -id the 
proposed reduction in com- 
pensation levels,' and thfeGoY^" 
eminent said it would be 
prepared to increase the cover 
under the investment protec- 
tion scheme to 90 per cent on 
amounts of up to £10,000, for 
as long as the limits in the new 
legislation on societies’ non- 
traditional lending activities 
remained in force. : 


Insurance companies will 
also fell outside the scope of 
the SIB compensation scheme 
as the Policyholders Protec- 
tion Act 1975 comes into {day 
here. 

■This applies only to private 
policyholders, with policies 
effected with UK-authorized 
insurance companies. Friend- 
ly society policies and Lloyd's 
syndicate policies are 
excluded. 

if an insurer collapses . the 
Policyholders Protection 
Board will pay out m frill cm 
all proven claims arising out 
of the insurance of compul- 
sory risks, such as 1 motor 


False claims are 
criminal offences 


insurance against injuries to 
third parties. ' • 


With regard to other forms 
of insurance, non-compulsory . 
insurance in effect, the board 
will pay Out on 90 per cent of 
the claim. For example, if you 
are burgled, claim on your 
household policy and find the 
insurer is unable to meet its 
liabilities, the board will pay 
out 90 per cent or your proven 
daim. You will not, however, 
get a refund of any unused 
premiums.

{The Chancellor opened a hornet's 
nest with the publication of hfs Green

[critic to add his weight to the growing pile 
of protests a Christopher Johnson, 
Uoyds Bank’s economist He rejects the

Paper. Abotitioh of the married man’s 
{allowance, says Mr Johnson, would

week on child benefit or 3p off the 
basic rate of tax, or a IS per cent increase 
in personal tax allowances. ."This 
'would help one-earner couples with

lout "It would nptdfecrmilnate between 


members of households, or between

the Greenwich Building Society is on

i and Colonial appears to take a 
reasonably confident view of the UK 
stock market although recommends 
only an average weighting. “The stimulus 
of a buoyant world economy lower oil 

■ prices and a competitive exchange rate 
have contributed to an extremely 
strong equity market," the review i 
"Industrial profits growth is exped 
to accelerate m 1886 to 15 per cent a year 
from 9 per cent last year and 
dividends should continue their 12 per 
cent growth. Takeover activity . 
continues to help bid up financial asset 
prices." 

Foreign and Colonial Is, however, ter 
more confident about Japanese shares, 
recommending an average weighting 
In them or htgnar. The review says: 
"Long-term growth remains in the 
domestic economy. The strength of the 
yen is largely discounted in the export 
stocks and a policy of gradual 
accumulation of this sector should be 
pursued.” 

It’s in the book 

■ Where can I get a good book which 
wffl explain some of the complexities of 
money and investment? This is 
perhaps one of the commonest cries from 
Times readers. The problem is that 
apart from base principles, most books 
on money are out of date as soon as 
they are written. However, the latest 
addition to the money library - The 
Famffy Money Book from LBC’s Douglas 
Moffitt— to good on basic | 
but not so hot on the [ 
example. It has a very good 
explanation of howto obtain income from 
your property if you come into tiie 
over-70 age bracket The answer is a 
home annuity and the explanation of 
how this works Is dear and easy to 
understand. But the book does not tell 
you at the end of the section where you 
can go for advice on home annuities, 

nor who markets them, it is stffl worth 
j hold of a copy, though, just for 
• basics. - 

The book is'pubRshed by Dent and is

the queue while the person In front

during the past four years has been 
dominated by two trusts. The latest 
statistics from the Association of 
Investment Trust Companies shows 
Lowland Investment Trust and F&C 
Eurotrust occupying the top two 
positions on a retum-to-sharehoUer 
basis over one war, two, three and 
five years. A £100 investment In F&C 
Eurotrust over one year to March 31, 
1986. would have produced a return of 
£170.70, and a corresponding 
investment in Lowland woukfhave 
produced £157.54. The five-year view 
shows Lowland far ahead of the 
opposition, with a £100 stake valued 
at £645.20. F&C Eurtrust, the next 
closest, has a return of £467.10. 

The A1TC has revamped the 
presentation of its statistics on 
investment trusts, breaking them 
down into three sets. These show share 
price total return — the increases In the 
share prices quoted for the trusts — nef 
asset value total return and 
management group fisting. These last two 
compos the performance of the 
underlying investments and that of the 
management groups which manage 
Invesmnent trusts. 

The statistics are available from the 
AITC at £12 a year for each fist or £30 for 
all three. Details from AITC, Park

How your pension funds fared 


How well have the investment 
managers who ran your com- 
pany pension scheme done hi 
the performance stakes? If 
they were good they would 
have managed to tarn in a 
return of more than 36 per cent 
in the past year — the tafl- 
emfers, however, would have 
prodneed only a 2 per cent 
improvement. 

These facts emerge from the 
latest snrvey of pension funds’ 
performance from Noble 
Lowndes. “The year 1985 was 
the fust year since 1981 in 
which some managers, free 
from any constraints o n their 
investment produced returns 
below the levels of both earn- 
ings and prices inflation,” said 
Ph3 Cooke, investment direc- 
tor of Noble Lowndes Invest- 
ment Monitoring. - 


The avenge return Jar all 
tiie pension tends monitored 
was 1&5 per cent - 7-3 per 
cent above the rise hi national 
average earnings. The report 
says: “The range of retains 
among portfolios in 1985 has 
been very wide- Not since 1960 
have they beat so extreme. 
One .message is dear - the 
markets, are becoming amove 
volatile and thus a mere 
dangerous place. As in previ- 
ous years, it has been stock 
selection which has been the 
most important factor in deter- 
mining whether performance 
has been above or. below 
average, with most managers 
foiling into a relatively narrow 
band of market sel ect ion 


The report adds that, al- 
though pension tend invest- 


ment managers get the overall 
market strategy right, they 
were net so hot on picking the 
right shares: “If market selec- 
tion produced few sarprises, 
stock selection was a different 
story socumtfog for by far tiie 
greatest measure of gains and 
some substantial losses. Vola- 
tility between investment 
booses was pro noanc ed. A 
mixture of an overweight ex- 
posure to electronics and 
electricals, anderweight in 
metals and shipping and a like 
for Japanese export-related 
stocks was a near perfect 
recipe for poor performance in 
1985."* 

Unfortunately for tee peo- 

sion fond members -concerned, 
the report does sot name those 
funds that got it wrong — nor 
the ones that got it right.

The abolition of capital trans- 
fer tax on lifetime gifts to 
individuals was one of the 
bolder reforms made by a 
Chancellor who has shown in 
his last three Budgets a healthy 
disregard for maintaining the 
status qua What remains of 
capital transfer tax has now 
been renamed inheritance tax 
and is largely similar to the old 
estate duty abolished by the 
Labour Government in 1974. 

Inheritance tax will now be 
chargeable at rales of up to 60 
per cent on all gifts made on 
death or within seven years of 
death. Gifts made wi thin three 
years of death will be taxable 
at the full death rates, whereas 
gifts made between four and 
seven years before death will 
be reduced by reference to a 
sliding scale of taper relief, 

Inheritance tax win also be 
chargeable on lifetime trans- 


Estate planning 
has been turned 
on its head 


fers into trust (other than 
accumulation and mainte- 
nance trusts and trusts for the 
disabled), although in these 
cases the tax will be charged at 
one half the corresponding 
death rate. 

As a result of these radical 
reforms estate planning has 
been turned on its head and 
tax specialists are eagerly wait- 
ing to see the small print of the 
proposed legislation when the 
Finance Bill is published later 
this month. 

The Budget proposals have 
already all but lulled the 
inheritance trust market 
which was previously a popu- 
lar way of mitigating CTT 
liabilities. The popularity of 
such schemes relied on die 
ability to be able to transfer 
assets while still being a We to 
enjoy an income from the 
assets. 

Unfortunately for the insur- 
ance companies that marketed 
the schemes the new legisla- 
tion will include a “reserva- 
tion of benefits” clause which 
will mean that for inheritance 


fits clause is lifted. 

However, all is noi lost for- 
the insurance companies as 
there is likely to be a profitable 
market in seven-year term 
assurance as recipients of 
lifetime gifts seek to avoid- 
financial toss should the do- 
nor die within seven years of 
making the gift. 

The abolition of CTT on 
lifetime gifts to individuals 
may lead to a rush of outright 
gifts to children and grandchil- 
dren as wealthy individuals 
hurry to divest themselves of 
wealth before the next election 
and a possible reintroduction 
of tax on lifetime gifts. 

However, human nature be- 
ing what it is, many, people 
will undoubtedly wish to hang 
on to their property for as long 
as possible and may end up 
paying more tax than would 
hav e bee n the case under the 
old CTT rules. 

Table 1 compares the rates 
of tax applicable to a top rate 
CTT payer (60 per cent) in 
respect of gifts made under the 
new inheritance t ax ru les and 
under the old CTT rules. 
Under CTT rules gifts made 
more than three years before 
death attracted tax at half the 
death rates, but under the new 
tapering relief provisions it 
will be five y ears before the 
previous CTT position can be 
bettered. 

Care should also be taken 
not t o confuse the abolition of 
CTT on lifetime gifts with the 
impact of capital gains tax 
which is chargeable on lifetime 
disposals but not on death. 

Capital gains tax on gifts is 
calculated by reference to the 
market value at the date the

recipient is a UK resident and 
both parties so elect, the gain 
can be held over. The recipi- 
ent effectively stands in the 
shoes of the ghrer and interns 
the giver’s bast cost forCGT 
purposes. This is different 
from a transfer on death where 
no CGT is payable and the 
recipient takes the probate 
valuation as his base cost. 

Suppose, for example, 

Charles transfers to his son.

£15,000 but which originally 
cost him only £ 2 . 000 . If the 
transfer is made during 
Charles's lifetime a capital 
gain (ignoring indexation) will 
arise tf£lL<X)0. 

Charles can either pay the 
30 percent capital gains tax or 
jointly elect with his son that 
the is held over, in which 
case William will inherit 
Charles's base cost of £2.000. 

If; on the other hand, the 

Each case most 
be considered 
on Its merits 

transfer was made on 
Charles’s death no CGT 
would arise and William 
would inherit the asset at its 
probate value of £1 5,000. 

Effectively then there is a 
choice to be made. Either 
property can be passed as a 
lifetime gift, in which case 
CGT will oe chargeable; or the 
property can be transferred on 
death, m which case inheri- 
tance rax wifi be chargeable. - 

Given that CGT is charge- 
able at a flat rate of 30 per cent 
and inheritance tax is charged 
at various rates (see Table 2) 
of up to 60 per cent, it wflj 
often be the case that the CGT- 


charge is the lesser of the two 
evils — particularfy as it can be 
rolled over and deferred, more 
or less indefinitely id some 
instances. 

This, however, will by no 
means always be the case and 
every case must be consi dered 
on its merits, in particular, 
certain assets may qualify for 
the 50 per cent business 
property refief from inheri- 
tance tax, which will effective- 
ly reduce the top rite of 
inheritance tax to the CGT 
rate of 30 per cent and it such 
cases lifetime transfer may 
not be best. J 

On the other hanfi. the 
indexation relief for fcapiial 
gains tax may ensue that 
CGT is the fesser chage. In 
addition, as CGT wilt Become 
payable only as and Wfien the 
assess are eventually s&d, the 
intentions of the recipient 
should not be overlooked. 

The least fevotxrabiri solu- 
tion may arise where rafts are 
made shortly before <te|th, in 
which case both CGT and 
inheritance tax may b* pay- 
able unless the new fegtiation 
permits some, form of id-off

Two good reasons for 
watching the vintages 






X WINES 0 

Two events — the devaluation 
of the French franc last week- 
end by 2.97 per cent against 
sterling and France's second 
most important wine auction 
— 4 have prompted aririari in- 
vestment interest to the 1985 
Bordeaux and Burgundy 
vintages. 

Hardly any British newspa- 
per carried news of the auction, 
of Hospices de Nuits wines 
from northern Burgundy 
therefore the information 
not yet reached investors this 
ride ofthe Charmed. But prices 
rose 48.9 per cent for the 1985 
vintage, which is of very good 
quality. The average price per 
piecev/as 25,958 Fr compared 
with 17,437 FF for last year's 
sale. Ami the volume on offer 
was up: .from 164.16 
hectolitres (each hectolitre is 
worth approximately 1 1 doz- 
en bottles of wme)to 193.8C8U.

John Harvey and Sons 
(Harvey House, Whitchurch 
Lane, Bristol, Avon BS14 QJZ) 
is making an offer of 1985 
Burgundies at opening prices. ' 
Mr John Harvey himseff who 
is looking after orders, says 
‘this is an exciting vintage for 
Burgundy and one of the best 
for many years. 

There is no question about - 
the vigour of the wines, panic* 
ularty the reds, which contain 
a good balance of tannin and 
acidity — hallmarks of poten- 
tial for investment wines. 

There is already great de- 
mand for the 1985 Burgun- 
dies, both within Europe and 
from the United Stales. While 
the prices are significantly 
above those of 1 984, they will 
look inexpensive on an histor- 
ic cost basis by the time of 
maturity in some six to eight 
years. 

As examples, Harveys are 
quoting Beaune 1985 from 
Charles Vienot at £64,. 
Pommard 1985 from Leonce 
de Valleroy (an exclusive to 
the firm) and two. .splendid

If lime is money are you using 
yours efficiently? Or do vou 
waste time — and therefore 
money — on household chores 
that could be done by some- 
one else? Many women da 

Marjorie Shaevitz, author 
of The Supennomen Syn- 
drome. observes that even 
highly paid working women 
are often reluctant to spend 
money on household services 
traditionally performed by 
women. “They reject hiring 
outside help with a passion 
that outweighs reasonable 
explanation." 

YeL she asks, why is it all 
right to hire a plumber to fix 
the loo if a husband can't or 
won’t, but not all right to hire 
someone to clean it if the wife 
can't or won't? 

Certainly there seems little 
sense in making a martyr of 

yourself if you could use the 
time normally spent on house- 
work earning more than, it 


would cost you to pay for a 
cleaner. 

Sue Partridge from Barnet 
works part-time from home 
teaching English to foreigners. 

She charges £8 an hour. She 
employs a cleaning lady to 
come in once a week for four 
hours and pays her £10, plus 
60p for fares. 

A growing number 
of small 
bnsinesses that 
offer a 

cleaning service 

She says: “In that time the 
whole house gets done, cer- 
tainly as well as I would do it.

hours housework. I can do 

four hours teaching. Not only

Employing a dally — or a 
oace-a-weekly — is the tradi- 
tional way of paying for 
household help. But there are 
a growing number of small 
businesses which offer the 
kind of service that would suit 
the woman who can cope with 
the day-to-day chores, but has 
neither the time nor the 
inclination to tackle major 
ones, like spring cleaning.

The company, which is

London, charge £20 + VAT 
per hour and say that to spring

usually takes about four

Be flexible and 
think carefully 
about the sort 
of domestic 
help yon need 


prices start from about £150. 
They can also “spring clean” 
your garden and can supply a 
handyman to do odd jobs. 

If you can find a local 
handyman who will work by 
the hour or the day, rather 
than by the job, he can work 
out far cheaper than calling 
out individual tradesman to 
deal with a series of problems. 


Christine Parris, of Hadley 
Wood. Hertfordshire, pays her 
handyman £55 a day. 

She says: “I save up lots of 
little jobs, then call him in. 
Last time he was here he 
painted the part of the landing 
that I couldn’t reach without a 
very tall ladder, he fitted locks 
to all our windows, he fixed a 
leaking radiator, he put a light 
in the garage, he mended a 
broken door and a light fitting 
in the hallway. 

“Even if my husband bad 
been able to do all the work 
himself it would have taken 
far longer than a day, and 
calling in a plumber, a carpen- 
ter, a painter and an electri- 
cian would have been far more 
expensive.” 

One such handyman is 
Mark Cine who has set up 
Jobs Unlimited which oper- 
ates in and around the Isling- 
ton area of north London. 

He says: “I do the kind of 
work that most builders con- 
sider too small — putting up 


shelves or curtain rails, 
plumbing in a washing ma- 
chine or adding an extra 
power point. 1 price each job 
individually, but I work on a 
basis of £7.50 an hour.” 


need a daily but it might be an 
idea to pay someone to do 
your ironing, or make your 
curtains. Kathy Wise, of 
Finchley, says: “f hate swing 
and even making a pair of 


pinched curtains cost me only 
£20 to have made up, and u 
was money well spent” 
Gardening, too, is some- 
thing people generally love or 
loathe. One person’s retax- 



When considering the ques- 
tion of paying someone el se to 
take over some of the domes- 
tic chores, be flexible. Maijo- 
rie Shaevitz says: “Many 
women are inhibited about 
buying help because they 
think too big.” 

Maybe you do not really 


curtains, which are relatively 
simple, takes me forever. So I 
pay someone to do it for me. 

“She charges by the width, 
not the length, so fully lined 
curtains cost from £3 to £5 a 
width, depending on the kind 
of tape used- A pair of doubte- 
‘ width, fully lined permanently 


ation is another's chore. Tins 
is an area where an increasing 
n amber ofsmall firms are now- 
offering “spring deans” or 
more regular maintenance. 

The York Garden Centre, m 
Palmers Green, north Lon- 
don, for example, not only 
handles contracts for estate- 


agents and the like, but also 
keep private gardens looking

They will trim ireev prune 
roses, weed, dSgflower beds, 
edge the lawns and cot the 
grass and dear away any 
garden rubbish for £&50 an

the hours you spend On do- 
inestic drudgery, and particu- 
larly if you could use those 
boms to do something more 
profitable or enjoyable, then 
perhaps it is time you did 
some sums. It could pay

What it costs to spend 


Guess who charges you most 
for drawing a cheque? All who 
bank with the Post Office 
National Giro Bank wQl know 
the answer became Giro’s 
customers pay a hefty 75p a 
time if they ran 19 an 
overdraft. 

The cheapest is Save ft 
Prospers Classic account 
where there are no hank 
charges unless the balance on 
your account falls below the 
£1,000, in which case there is a 
flat fee of £2 a month. In 
addition, SftP pays you 8.75 
per cent interest on your credit 
balances. 

Of the high street banks 
Lloyds and MfrUand are 
cheaper than Barclays and 


National Westminster. Lloyds 
charges only 20p for writing a 
cheque when yon are over- 
drawn - but you also get 
charged 20p when yon pay 
money in, whereas Midland 
charges you 28p for writing 
cheques when you are over- 
drawn but nothing when you 
pay money into your account. 

Co-op and the TSB don't 
come out too well in the 
comparison (pot together by 
SftP), charging 36p and 3Sp 
respectively for writing 
cheques when yon are over- 
drawn. Copies of the guide can 
be obtained from Save ft

FAMILY MONEY/9 


Sean Geer, a recent graduate, gives a view from personal experience of how to live on a grant 


Why a loan may be the last thing you need 


t ; STUDENTS 

Mgch Ea* been written of the- 
difficulties 'of living on a 
student grant. Though" life, at 
college can involve financial 
problems, . the- situation is 
often , made ' easter, by the 
willingness, of banks to lend 
what may be large, sums of 
money.. . v . .. 

- This is often, dan ge r o u s in 
the fang ran. Payment of a big 
overdraft once college days mtt; 
over isa depressing and often 
impossible project “ . 

AB inatt, atis sensible to jgy 
to keep wit hin the 'limits 
imposed by,: the size of. the 
grant .Many students would . 
claim this is just not possible. 

•' Yet it can be done, provided 
one is prepared. to make a few 
sacrifices. Students are in- 
creasingly following examples 
set by the unemployed, where 
low income forces . them, to 

show remarkable resourceful- 
ness when ft comes to Hving 
cheaply. 

Of the items most impor- 
tant in keeping alive, renris 
probably the most expensive. 
The only way to reduce costs 
on this front is to apply to the 
local council for a rent rebate. 
Unfortunately, students re- 
ceiving a grant and paying less 
than £15.75 a week in rent do 
not qualify (in London 
£20.80), and even those pay- 
ing more than this often get 
nothing. - 

' Even so, it is -well worth 
applying anyway, especially 
for those on a low grant Every 
case is assessed individually 
during term time and you may 
well .qualify for something. 
From 1987-88, however, 
housing benefit will be with- ; 
drawn if the proposals go 
through.

firet refuges of impecunious 
students. It is a thoroughly 
practical way of saving mon- 
ey. Beans and pulses' m their 
myriad forms are cheap and 
healthy and can be stored 
.almost indefinitely. This 
makes them suitable for bulk- 
buying and hence more sav- 
ings. 

Vegetables as a whole, espe- 
cially roots and the ubiquitous 
potato, are cheap and can 
provide a . diet of enormous 
variety. The savings can be 
great — two friends have cut 
-their food hill to about £5 a 
week between them without 
enduring a moment’s hunger. 
There are other inescapable 
expenditures. The most signif- 
icant of these is electricity. 
Electricity lulls have a nasty 
habit of turning up at the end 
of term. They can reach truly 
frightening proportions with- 


out the user being aware of ft. 

After years . of living at 
home, ft is inevitable that such 
tilings as electricity are taken 
for granted, but it is vital to 
appreciate how expensive it is. 

The best way of reducing 
the cost is simply to avoid flats 
with electric fires, cookers or 
storage heaters. These all eat 
up money at an astonishing 
rate. Gas is a much cheaper 
(and warmer) alternative — 
you are much less likely to end 
up with a bill for £300-plus 
which you cannot pay. 

It is also worth remember- 
ing that electricity boards are 
very good at tracking down 
non-payers and are always 
prepared to go to court, so 
moving out is not a solution! 

There are many other ele- 
ments of a student’s life which 
are equally important but on 
which it- is more difficult to 


economize. Such things as bus 
feres are unavoidable without 
serious risk of felling foul of 
the law. But a visit to a student 
travel office will yield valuable 
information about season 
tickets. 

Concert tickets, records and 
pub crawls are an important 
part of student life and the 
cost must be borne according- 
ly. Money can be saved in less 
obvious ways, however. 

Text books, for example, are 
very expensive, especially sci- 
entific manuals, and although 
their purchase is universally 
recommended by lecturers it 
is often tinnecesrary. Library 
facilities at all universities and 
colleges are extensive, and 
several copies of recommend- 
ed books can usually be found. 
There will always be some that 
are worthwhile investments, 
particularly less specialized 


ones that may cover the entire 
scope of a course. Neverthe- 
less. it is very important to be 
fully acquainted with all the 
services of the library — it mas- 
save you pounds on books you 
may barely use. 

On a less academic level 
home-brewed beer and home- 
made wine are potentially 
great money-savers. Students 
are not generally noted for 
their teetotal virtues. Alcohol 
accounts in some cases for a 
large chunk of the grant. 
Home brewing is a very cheap 
way of guaranteeing that 
much needed drink after a 
hard evening's work. 

With the advent of kits such 
as those sold by Boots, the 
process is incredibly quickand 
simple — a minimum of 
expertise has excellent results. 
Initial expenditure on the 
necessary equipment may be

Even were surprised. When we launched our Special Opportunities Fund, 
we had high hopes. .We’ve exceeded them. 

In the last 12 months it’s grown by 60.5%* thanks to our special formula. 

Our special formula. 

We search out smaller companies with good management and a strong 
balance sheet. We go for under-researched companies before they become 
fashionable. Often, they have lost favour with the market and are undervalued. 
But not by us. 

We always try. ‘to get to know the company well. It gives us a better insight 
into how the company is run, and likely future developments. 

We believe that knowing what to leave alone is as important as knowing 
what to buy. For example, we took the fond out of technology stocks in 1984, 
and stayed out during 1985. 

We stick to what we know best and we actively manage. We keep to our 
principles. Our approach seems to have worked. 

For future success. 

Can we pfomise to match this performance in the future? Certainly not. 
In feet, the price of units and the income from them can go down as well as up 
and past performance i$ never any guarantee of the future. 

But prospects in the UK are good. Opportunities abound, and we intend 

to consistently apply our philosophy. [ TR SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES FUND jf|

less than £10. Although your 
living room may not have 
quite the atmosphere of the 
local pub. doing it yourself can 
keep the spirits up when the 
bank balance is shrinking. 

Commonsense approaches 
such as these, can save a lot of 
money. There are plenty of 
less conventional ones which 
are generally a product of 
individual skill and ingenuity. 
The most secure way to 
supplement the grant is to get 
an evening or pan-time job. 
This is not always possible, as 
every other impecunious stu- 
dent may be doing the same 
thing. So alternatives are 
sought keenly. 

Busking is popular in many 
areas and, although frowned 
upon by the law. can bring in 
welcome extra pounds. 

Pavement artists are always 
popular with the public and 
can make a killing in busy 
shopping precincts. 

Obviously, none of these 
measures is going to allow 
spending sprees in clothes 
shops and restaurants. But it is 
certainly true that by adopting 
some of them in whole or in 
part, it is possible to save quite 
a lot of money. 

Compromise is the impor- 
tant thing.

“The currency madcets have 
gone totally crackers, especial- 
ly over the last few days.” 

.That is not the despair of an 
uncomprehending outsider, 
but the considered drcmm of a 
professional investment man- 
ager who plays the foreign 
exchange markets with money 
from ineinvestizigpubGa. .- 

It seems that the days of that 
once fashionable disease, the 
total allergy syndrome, may 
notbeeatirely over, at least on 
tbcforeign exchanges. 

^Cmrendes like steriiqg are 
reacting incredibly sensitively 
to just about everything. 
There’s been extra uncertainty 
created by the recent realigxF- 
raent of the currencies in the 
European .Monetary System, 
notably the German tnark and 
the French franc,” adds PauL 
Talbot, manager of Brown 
Shipley's managed currency 
fund. 

But where does that leave 
the ordinary members of the 
public who- have money com- 
mitted on the foreign ex- -. 
changes through the device of 
managaH currency funds? 

Managed currency funds 
are the small investor’s way of 
putting money into foreign 
currencies without having to 
pay over the odds. A mini- 
mum commitment of £500 to 
a currency fond means that 
your money win be converted 
into whatever currencies the 
manager thinks fit. And the . 
conversion rates will be 
“wholesale" — they win hot 
suffer the fat commissions 
that tourists have to pay in the - 
high street banks. 

Of course, your money will " 
be earning interest for you, 
whether it has been convened 
into francs, Deutschmarks or 
dollars. 

When the time comes to 
withdraw, the manag er will 
convert your holding back 
into pounds, and you will 
have made money if the other 
currencies have appreciated 
against sterling or if the 
interest earned is great 
enough. 

If you give your money to a 
manager he or she win take an 
initial fee of 3 to 5 per cent, 
plus an annual charge of 
anything between 0.75 and 2 
per cent. The central idea of 
making money from money is 
that the manager switches 
from currency to currencyjust

the best time to buy pounds 
.would have been in February 
last year when a pound cost 


just $1-03. If you sold pounds 
now you would get 40 percent 
more dollars' for your money. 
It's all very- easy with 
hindsight. 

The stock market's move- 
ments have been compared to 
those of a lunatic in a lift, and 
the foreign exchanges are tra- 
ditionally even more volatile. 
But -currency fund managers 
.hold themselves, but as ex- 


franc weaker. Did the profes- 
sionals anticipate that? 

“We expected ft to happen," 
says Phillip Saunders of 
Guinness Mahon, “but we 
were slightly surprised by the 
timing of h. 

“When tire franc went down 
we were just 5 per cent 
committed, with a fer larger 
exposure to the mark. Now we 
can expect a little more from 
the franc, we've moved up to a 
20 per cent stake. But our 
main currency is still the 
mark. We see no reason for 
any strategic switch from 
mark to franc.” 

Tyndall’s currency fund in- 
vestment consultant, Simon 
Hard, was a little more re- 
served; “We had sold out of 
francs back into the pound

perts, able to predict what will 
happen. 

; . it is interesting to see what 
. the professionals made of the 
revaluation - of the 
■Deutschmark, and the 
downgrading of the franc this 
week. Both these currencies 
are members of the European 
Monetary System, unlike 
sterling. 

The idea of the EMS is to 
keep the currencies in a frame- 
work, and so Airly stable, in 
relation to one another. They 
can floataround alittle, but no 
more than 2J5 per cent either 
side of a set, mid rate. The 
result of negotiations in the 
Netherlands was a 3 per cent 
rise for the Deutschmark and 
a drop of the same amount for 
the franc in the mid rates. The 
markets reacted '.slightly 
against the .new values at first, 
but the Deutschmark is now 
generally stronger and the 


before the realignment We're 
now around- 30 per cent 
committed to francs for our 
sterling fund.” 

For some the realignment 
made little difference. Mr 
Talbot has an aggressive in- 
vestment policy for his Brown 
Shipley fund: 

He says; “It's a relatively 
small fond, of some £200,000, 
but that gives us the advantage 
of being very flexible. We are 
100 per cent committed to the 
mark, and we were before the 
changes. We take a view and 
go with our currency naps. 
Obviously, we're delighted at 
the strengthening of the 
mark." 

The EMS happenings were 
of even less interest to Chris 
Cheetham, manager of the 
Vanburgh currency fond. His 
strategy centres on the pound 
and the dollar, playing the one 
against the other, and as such 


Justices should not go for view alone 


“the events in Ootmarsum 
weren't really significant — we 
don't commit that much mon- 
ey to the European 
currencies." 

Now the surprise; Although 
currency funds invest in a 
notoriously quixotic market 
(which is why the Department 
of Trade will not allow them 
to be authorized unit trusts), 
they are not really speculative 
investments at alL The table 
shows rather modest perfor- 
mances, even from those who 
got it light. 

An average improvement of 
9 per cent, barring the excep- 
tionally poor performance of 
Forexfund, the worst funds 
have managed to lose just 7 
per cent of their diems’ mon- 
ey before charges are 
deducted. 

The managers may chop 
and change their portfolios of 
currencies and the various 
instruments they use, such as 
bonds, cadi deposits, etc, but 
they do not seem to stay very 
well ahead of the market. The 
manager of top performer 
Guinness Mahon, Phillip 
Saunders, admits: “The per- 
formance of currency funds as 
a whole is chequered.” You 
may wish to interpret that as a 
charming euphemism for “ 
not particularly good”. 

So should you do it your- 
self? Perhaps have a punt 
using self-managed vehicles 
called multi-currency depos- 
its? These schemes do not 
have front end charges, but 
will cost you between 0.25 and 
I per cent annually. 

The currency fond manag- 
ers say not. Thinking of . the 
charges, Mr Hard says: “Obvi- 
ously I've an axe to grind, but 
to deal in currencies you need 
to follow the madcets on a 
day-to-day basis, and have 
your own view of currencies, 
interest rates and relative 
value for money." 

Mr Cheetham at Vanburgh 
asks: “Would you try to build 
your own car? It is a specialist 
skill.” The very idea, accord- 
ing; to Mr Saunders, is 1 
“ndicuous”. 

Currency funds are an in- 
vestment conundrum in that 
they perform unexcitiiigly in 
extremely speculative mar- 1 
kets. Furthermore, according 
to the managers, to deal in 
these markets requires a high 
level of sophistication — the 
sort of skills a psychiatrist 
might need to deal with 
someone who is thoroughly 
“crackers”. 


Parry v Boyle 

Before Lord Justice Glidewell 
and Mr Justice Scbiemann 
[Judgment given April 10] 

Where justices determined to 
view -the scene of an alleged 
offence which they wen: trying, 
because they believed it was 
right and helpful so to da they 
should not normally do so 
without being accompanied by 
the parties and their legal 
representatives. 

The justices should allow the 
parties the opportunity to com- 
ment thereafter on what they 
saw. and therefore the view 
should occur at some time 
before the conclusion of the 
evidence. 

The Queen’s Bench Di- 
visional Court so held when it 
dismissed the prosecutor’s ap- 
peal against the decision of 
Bromsgrove Justices on June 
II, J985. when they dismissed 
an information charged against 
Marion Josephine Boyle of driv- 
ing without due care and atten- 
tion, contrary to sections 3 and 
177 of the Road Traffic Act 
1972, as amended by section 21 
of the Road Traffic Act 1974.

prosecutor Mr Roger D. H.

driven into the wrong carriage- 
way on a dual carriageway, and 
that an accident had occurred 

l he justices had evidence 
from photographs taken during 
dayjjgbi of ibe road approaching 
the dual carriageway. The ac- 
cident had occurred at night. 

At the conclusion of the 
prosecution evidence, the defen- 
dant gave no evidence. The 
justices informed the parties 
that they proposed to view the 
scene, and it had to be implied 
that if either party wished to 
accompany them then the jus- 
tices would have acceded to that 
wish. 

Neither party so indicated 
and the justices, having visited 


the scene, dismissed the 
information since the road signs 
were inadequate to indicate 
there was a dual carriageway 
His Lordship said that the 
justices had made a view and 
nothing else: it was to supple- 
ment the oral evidence and the 
photographs, and broadly 
speaking, they had complied 
with the principles set out in 
Sa/sbun' v Woodland (119701 1 
QB 324. 343-344). 

Although that case related to a 
civil matter, the principles 
should be adopted generally 
Here.there had been an im- 
plied invitation to the parties to 
accompany the justices. 
However, it was undesirable 


for justices to view the scene 
without the parties present since 
it was possible that some feature 
of the locality might have 
altered, and justices might see 
something which impressed 
them but which the panics 
would not have seen and been 
able to evaluate. 

In any event, the justices had 
directed themselves properly on 
the law and made conclusions 
which a reasonable bench of 
justices would have reached on 
evidence. 

Mr Justice Scbiemann agreed.

Co for Mr B. G. Coase, Worces- 
ter John McCormack St Co.

Entering UK on a false passport 


Regina v Secretary of State for 
the Home Department, Ex 
pane Patel 

An applicant who on entering 
the United Kingdom presented 
to the immigration officer a 
passport and entry clearance 
which had been fraudemly ob- 
tained had, in those circum- 
stances, made a representation 
which he knew to be false or did 
not believe to be true within 
section 2U 1 Kc) of the Immigra- 
tion Act 1971. 

Mr Justice Webster so held in 


the Queen's Bench Division on 
March 26 when dismissing an 
application for a writ of habeas 
corpus. 

HIS LORDSHIP said that in 
R v Secretary of State for the 
Home Department, Ex parte 
Addo ( The Times April 18. 
1985). Mr Justice Hodgson de- 
cided that a person who pre- 
sented his passport to an 
immigration officer on entering 
this country, if he said nothing, 
was making no representation

Unprecedented Growth 

Growth in the sfte of continental 
European stock markets has been dramatic 
over recent years and yet the largest. West 
Germany, for example, has a stock market 
that is around half the size of that of the 
United Kingdom while its economy is 
□early twice as large 

However, increasing international and 
domestic interest; continuing recovery 
from the recessionary environmentof the 
early 80's; and the re-rating of shares in 
some of Europe’s successful multi-national 
companies, combine to suggest an exciting 
future for European stock markets. 

U.K. and Continental Europe 

The European Growth Fund will invest 
in the 2,400 plus public companies quoted 
on the U.K. stock market as well as those of 
continental Europe, providing the Managers 
with an 80% wider investment range over 
purely continental European companies. 

The objective of the Fund is maximum 
capital growth and initially the Managers 
anticipate investing the portfolio as - 
follows 

West Germany 25% 

Economic optimism abounds, inflation is 
a low 1.8% and lax cuts expected this year 
should boost consumer expenditure. 


European 
Growth Fund 




Low inflation, together with double digit 
gains projected For corporate profits and 
dividends, combine to create many 
excellent investment opportunities. 

France 20% 

Against a background of encouraging 
economic indicators, shares continue to 
provide prospects fa r growth . 

Switzerland 4% 

Business confidence is tunning high with 
inflation dediningand capacity utilisation 
averaging.86%. 

Italy 7% 

The Italian stock market, although modest 
in size, is growing following strong demand 
from Italian mutual funds set up in 1983. 

Netherlands 5% 

Low inflation and increases in domestic 
consumption and exports should boost 
share prices.

Old age is inevitable. But a pocn and lonely one is 
something different- something rhat many people 
face with growing fear. In a largely uncaring, 
inflationary world we aw trying rostem the ride. 

But we desperately need mow funds. Will you be a 
friend and help us by making a covcnaar or by 
remembering us In your will? 

Friends of the Elderly have been looking after 
the elderly and needy since 1905 . and now have 
eleven residential homes. Here, men and women 
from professional backgrounds And security 
and freedom, with expert nursing care. They are 
"at home' and not 'in a home" - they never have 
to leave. We also give financial help toold people 
from all backgrounds who wish to stay in their 
own homes. 

Please belp us to make old age the 
happy and contented time it should be. 

Ton really can be a friend. 

Do write to us.

SPORT 


Whitsunday to confirm 
his Newbury promise 


i If „ ^ 

t E ft 

y=AS 


Whitsunday Is. napped- to 
trigger off a doable for las 
most able Lainboura trainer 
Nicky Henderson at Ascot 
today by winning the Royal 

Fern Novices Chase, a double 
to. be completed hopefully 
neariy .two hours later by 
Pike's Peak in the Alpine 
Meadow- Handicap Hurdle, 
run over three miles, a dis- 
tance that he dearly relishes. 

After Whitsunday had run 
so well to finish second to the 
smart Polar Sunset in Ins first 
steeplechase, at Newbuiy, 
having already shown an 
abundance of promise in 
point-to-points. Henderson 
considered putting him away 
for the time-being and keeping 
him a maiden -.until next 
season when he could run up a 
sequence of victories in condi- 
tion races. 

But after further thought he 
decided to go for today’s race, 
his decision being based upon 
the theory, “if you're going to 
lose your maiden’s tag you 
might as wefl do it in a race 
that is worth a lot rather than 
in some inconsequential 
affair." And with £8,000 add- 
ed to the sweepstakes today’s 
race at Ascot is certainly weB 
worth winning. . . 

I have seldom seen a point- 
to-pointer adapt to jumping 
the bigger and stiffer race- . 
course fences more fluently 
than Whitsunday dkf at 
Newbury. . Having already 
been a joo&ihne admirer of 
his conqueror. Polar Sunset, I 
was even more impressed with 
the way that he not only got so 
close to the winner, but also 
with the way that he floated 
over both tire 'ground , and the 
obstacles. 

Fora big horse he has great 
agility and be is a wonderful 
mover. So he should relish 


% Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 

) today’s ground. Furthermore, i 
s . Polar Sunset has won again in ' i 
r the meantime so h wiD be 
t even more disappointing . if :

- would not still be raring this ]

come to the conclusion that 
with Michael Bowfby claiming 
71b he should go well even 
' against the likes oflshkomann 
and Here's Why. 

• Well that Ishkomann won 
at Liverpodeighl days ago the 
feet remains he is an unknown- 
quantity over today’s distance 
of three miles whereas Pike's 
Peak is not. 

Following those decisive 
victories at Cheltenham and 
Liverpool. Jobroke is the oth- 
er horse that I really fancy at 
Ascot today, to win the Trilli- 
um Handicap Hurdle 
Top weight for . the 


Contiboard Novices Handi- 
cap Chase will.be carried by 
Desert Orchid. .Weii that he 
should go I still fed that a 
succession of hard races at 
Sandown, Cheltenham and 
Sandown again could have left 
their mark and certainly left 
me wondering whether he will 
manage to give weight to Gold 
Bearer who. with only three 
races under his belt this 
season, will strip fresher than 
most and that is a major 
consideration at this stage. 

At Bangor five of the six 
races have been sponsored by 
Alfred McAlpine PLC. 

Baby Sigh, a winner on the 
course already this spring 
before finding himself some- 
what out of his depth at 
Liverpool, will be attempting 
to win bade some of the family 
firm’s contribution for his 
enthusiastic owner Bobby 
McAlpine in the Minerals 
Novices Hurdle. 

. Bui here 1 just pre fer Boffin 
Palace, who was pulled up in 
his last race at Newbury, but 
only after his rider’s stirrup 
leather had broken as the 
result of a melee early on and 
the subsequent collision with 
the rails. Before that Boffin 
Palace's form was every bit as 
good as Baby Sighs if not 
actually better. 

Rboecus is my other princi- 
pal fancy at Bangor to win the 
Alfred McAlpine Construc- 
tion Handicap Hurdle follow- 
ing that six lengths victory at 
Wetherby 1 1 days ago. 

Finally, I can pass on a tip 
from George Robinson, onr 
Newmarket Correspondent, 
that Olivier Douieb's new- 
comer Bananas is expected to 
beat the much more experi- 
enced Top Guest in the Judi 
Murden Maiden Stakes at 
Beverley.- , 





Tate Gallery for a 
classic exhibition 

From Oar Irish Correspondent, Dublin 



Fat Eddery dear on Con Horgan's newcomer Enchanted Times in the 
Polyanthus Stakes at Kempton (Photograph: Ian Stewart) 

Cole maintains momentum 

By John Kartar 


Backers who pot Mind faith in 
the old racing of foUow- 

iag the trainer hi form when the 
season is ia its infancy would 
have foond themselves on the 
right cad of two attractively 
priced pay-outs at Kempton 
Park yesterday. 

Paid Cole, the man who 
provided them with the warming 
35-1 doable on a bitter after- 
noon, has now saddled six 
winners from his last eight 
runners, so dearly anything be 
pots on a rac e cour s e most be 
treated with the utmost respect 
In the next few weeks. 

Cole’s principal success came 
with Nfenas in the Labornam 
Stakes, a classic trial of sorts, 
although one that had been 
greatly devalued by the over- 
night withdrawal of Dancing 
Brave, Guy Harwood's heavily 
Guineas candidate. 

Nisnas, in feet, drifted in the 
market yesterday, while Khaled 
Abdulla 's American bred colt, 
Esdale, was rmnoured to be “the 
business’' ami Pat Eddery, who 
has been in such dominant form, 
rode the favourite with such 


extreme confidence that it 
seemed there could only be one 
winner. 

That was tmtQ the last 100 
yards or so when Eddery coasted 
up to challenge Nisnas and it 
seemed merely a question of bow 
far Esdale would win. In a flash, 
though, the picture changed and 
as Nisnas responded to a crack 
of the whip from Richard Quinn. 
Esdale was snddenly straggling 
to go with his rival, who drew 
away to win narrowly, but 
conrindngly. 

Cole describes Nisnas as the 
most improved horse in his 
stable and says that the farther 
be goes the better be wiB be. The 
son of Tap on Wood will make 
his next port of call, therefore, in 
one of the recognised Derby 
trials to see if he is up to Epsom 
standard. 

Cole was hack in the winner’s 
enclosure half au hour later after 
Torwada, carrying the same 
bottle-green colours of Fahd 
Salman, had won the Magnolia 
Stakes very easily from Russian 
Logic. And, an hoar or so earlier, 
with a furlong left to ran in the 


Jonnie Mailings Memorial 
Handicap it looked long odds on 
the same combination initiating 
a treble when Pochard, whom 
Quinn bad sent dear of his 
rivals from the start, had the 
other jockeys scrubbing away 
and apparently getting no 
response. 

However, Pochard's strike be- 
gan to shorten dramatically and 
Derek Brown drove David 
Elsworth's 33-1 shot. Holy 
Spark, past in the last 100 
yards. Indeed, Pochard bach- 
peddalled to such an extent that 
he lost second place to another 
outsider, Kentucky Quest. 

Cole, apart, probably the 
warmest smile seen on the 
course yesterday was that of 18- 
year-old Alison Harper, who. 
riding Top Wing, showed both 
style and calmness under pres- 
sure to hold off the much more 
experienced Gay Kelleway on 
Benisa Ryder in the Florence 
Nagle Girl Apprentices Stakes. 
Miss Harper is certainly a fine 
advertisement for the New- 
market Apprentice School, 
whose first winner she is. 


A year ago, the 2.000 Guineas 
prospects of the Vincent 
O’Brien-trained ante-post 
favourite. Gold Crest, were 
exploded when he was beaten at 
long odds-on by tbe 33-1 
chance. Caparison, in the Glad- 
ness Stakes at Tbe Curragh. It is 
unlikely that the same me will 
overtake today’s O'Brien repre- 
sentative. Tate Gallery, who 
should find underfoot con- 
ditions very much to his liking. 

The race has taken on a new 
title with Gladness p re- fixed by 
the name of Michael Smurfiu 
who this year took office as the 
chairman of the Raring Board. 

In recent weeks, Tate Gallery 
has been the medium of heavy 
support for the 2,000 Guineas, 
and yesterday afternoon the best 
price available about him was 5- 
1 for the Newmarket classic. 

As a two-year-old. he made 
three appe ranees and although a 
first-lime failure in the Heinz 57 
Phoenix Stakes, be went on to 
redeem himself witb a brace of 
smooth successes over seven 
furlongs at Hie Curragh. the 
same distance as today’s race. 

The more important of these 


wins was recorded in tbe group 
one National Stakes in which he 
beat Nashamaa by one-and-a- 
halflcngths. I was surprised that 
this did not earn him the top 
mark in the Irish two-year-old 
justification, but the handi cap- 
per preferred another O’Brien 
juvenile. Woodman. 

The opposition to Tate Gal- 
lery is headed by two youthful 
four-year-olds Lidhame and Mi- 
ami Count, who coincidentally 
finished first and second in the 
Salisbury 2.000 Guineas Trial 
last season. 

Lidhame did not win again 
and during the winter was 
transferred from John Dunlop 
at Arundel to Kevin Prcndeigast 
at The Curragh. 

Miami Couul has likewise got 
a new handler this season, going 
to Dcrmot Weld, and I would 
rate him likely to reverse the 
Salisbury placings with 
Lidhame and follow Tate 
Tallery home. 

The Irish Lincolnshire Handi- 
cap has produced a maximum 
turn-out of 30 runners, and Pat 
Eddery should have a good ride 
here on Wolveratar. 


Luqman to star in Italy 


Bright As Night (Greville 
Starkey). Hello Emani (Walter 
Swinburn) and Luqman (Paul 
Eddery) carry British bopes in 
the £28.956 added Premio 
Parioli (Italian 2.000 Guineas) 
at the Capannelle. Rome, today. 

Luqman, who won half his 
ten races last year, including the 
Mill Reef Stakes, is a fancied 
contender, although he has not 
run since finishing fourth to 
Stalker in the Middle Park on 
October 5. 

The other two have both been 
beaten this year, but Hello 
Emani failed by only half a 
length against Tisn’t at 
Kempton recently. 

Steve Cauthen rides Alex 
NuP*i-*.' winner of both bis 
races this year, while Brent 
Thomson is on Tanque Verde. 
Cauthen gained a 20-1 success 
on this colt in the Gran 
Criterium, in October. 


The French challenger. 
Bestcbreuje (Yves Saint-Mar- 
tin), who topped the Italian free 
handicap but ran terribly on his 
reappearance. Max D*or 
(Gianfranco Dettori) and 
Miscrown (Cash Asmussen), 
who used to be with Luca 
Cumani but is now trained in 
Italy, arc others with chances. 

Grevifle Starkey.wilf stay in 
Rome to ride Chapel Cottage, 
another raider for Bright as 
Nighfs owner. Terry Ramsden. 
and trainer. Mick Ryan, in the 
£10.341 added premio Natale di 
Roma (SO tomorrow . 

Tbe mare's stamina is a little 
suspect, even on the expected 
good going, but she is receiving 
weight from her eight opponents 
and that may see her safely 
home in front of Sieve 
Cauthen's mount. Mantero. 
Malevic and Capo Nord.

Grand Pn.\ racing’s newest 
circuit which has been created 
out of barren land in only six 
months, has been given a quali- 
fied welcome by drivers practis- 
ing for tomorrow's Spanish 
Grand Pnx. The 2.6-tnilc track 
on the eastern outskirts of Jerez 
de la Froniera — the heart of 
Spain's sherry producing re- 
gions — has surpmed everyone 
by us speed, especially as its 16 
comers are linked together by 
comparatively short straights. 

“It is about 20 mph faster 
than we thought and at compet- 
itive speed it represents a 
considerable driving challenge." 
Nigel Mansell said. His Wil- 
liams-Honda was only knocked 
off die provisional pole position 
yesterday by a meteoric last lap 
from Ayrton Senna in his Re- 
nault-powered JPS Lotus. 


“1 think the Spanish have 
done a fantastic job to get the 
track together in such a short 
space of time." added Mansell. 
“It isn't perfect, of course, but 

basically all the ingredients are 
there and the circuit can only get 
better with urne." One thing 
which was not quite all there 
yesterday morning was the full 
communication between race 
control and the individual 
marshals' posts and the result- 
ing 90-rmnute delay during the 
day meant that qualifying took 
place in relatively cool after- 
noon air. which must have 
helped lap limes. 

The circuit's mam drawback 
is the lack of overtaking 
opportunities. The first uphill 
comer after the start is the only 
logical passing point between 
cars of near equal performance. 


so we may see a lot of queueing 
tomorrow afternoon. But 
FISA'* circuit inspector. Derek 
Dngaro, sees this as a plus point , 
Both ManseQ and Senna en- 
countered certain problems dur- 
ing their domination of 
quaiifving. Mansell was in- 
advertently hindered by his 
former team colleague, Kekc 
R os berg (now with Malboro 
McLaren), on his vital lap and 
reckons would otherwise have 
been wj) down into the Imin 
22$cc bracket, while Senna, who 
lost considerable time while his 
team completed a quick engine 
change following a series of 
problems during the morning 
session, had to make his qualify- 
ing attempt with his car set too 
low. with the result that the 
bodywork was dragging along 
(he ground at several points. In 


the circumstances, his was a 
remarkable effort.

For the second successive

and hope that their struggling

Irish struggle 
to gain draw 
against Scots 

By Joyce Whitehead 
Ireland's women, going for 
the Home Countries grand 
slam, scrambled a l-I draw 
against Scotland as the last of 
the senes's four tournaments 
began at Largs yesterday. Mary 
Barnwell equalized in ihe last 
minute from a penalty comer 
after a goal by Marsala Young 
had given Scotland the lead in 
the 24th minute. 

In the day's oiber match 
Gillian Brown scored both 
England's goals in iheir 2-0 win 
over Wales, but the Welsh 
nonetheless defended well.

McLean calls the title tune 


The four contenders for the 
Scottish League championship 
line up against each other in 
fierce conflict on an afternoon 
which may well become the 
most momentous in the history 
of the premier division. 

At Tannadicc. Heart of Mid- 
lothian. the leaders, meet Dun- 
dee United, who are three points 
behind but have a game in hand. 
At Pinodrie. Aberdeen and 
Celtic, who jointly command 
third place, five points behind 
Hearts but also with a game each 
in hand, know victory is essen- 
tial if either club is to remain in 
contention. 

It is an intriguing situation, 
bui the most popular view is 
that the winners of the match in 
Dundee should become the 
champions. A draw, of course, 
would restore the winners of the 
Aberdeen game 10 a more 
favourable position in the race. 

Although Hearts beat Dundee 
tinned in the semi-final of ihe 
Scottish Cup last week, the 
Tannadicc l earn have recovered 


By Hugh Taylor 

from that disappointment so 
well that they beat St Mima 
convincingly in mid-week and 
arc confident that they can turn 
the tables. 

That is the opinion of the 
shrewd Jim McLean, who bases 
his prediction on a sound judge- 
ment. “Hearts." said the United 
manager, “are the best team in 
the League and are playing to 
(heir strengths. But I do not 
think they have much scope for 
improvement while, on the 
other hand, we can only im- 
prove on last week's display. But 
this time we will not allow them 
to play it their way but call our 
own tune." 

Aberdeen are beset by injuries 
but their home record against 
Celtic is impressive and they 
realize that defeat would end 
their hopes of winning a third 
successive championship. 

Celtic, who have won their 
last three games, are heartened 
bv the return of Johnston after 
suspension and McGhee, the 
former Aberdeen forward. 


following injury. Both sides 
have been inconsistent in their 
mdiflerem season and a draw 
seems the most likely result. 

Rangers are determined to 
climax with a victory in one of 
their most dramatic weeks, 
which saw the arrival of Graeme 
Sou ness as player-manager. 
Alex Totten, the assistant to the 
deposed Jock Wallace, is in 
charge of the team at Clydebank 
and he springs a surprize, bring- 
ing back MacDonald, a forward, 
who has long been out of favour, 
and dropping Cooper, the inter- 
national wing. 

Old boys 9 final 

The final of the Arthur Dunn 
Cup takes place at the Dulwich 
Hamlet ground at 3.0pm today . 
Old Brentwoods play Old 
Cholmeleians. who last won the 
trophy in 1959. Old Brentwoods 
have reached peak form in 
recent weeks, and must be 
favourites to win the Cup which 
was last theirs in 1 973. 


FIFA rift deepens as S African money lures top players 

Grant fuels defection row 


The £1 million grant an- 
nounced yesterday by South 
African Breweries (SAB) to the 
National Soccer League (NSLJ 
will inevitably increase the con- 
flict between Sooth African 
football and FIFA over the 
import of foreign players. As in 
much of the economics of Africa, 
the wealth of the continent lies 
within the southern tip. and 
more than SO professionals have 
been enticed by NSL teams to 
defect from Malawi. Mozam- 
bique. Swaziland and Lesotho, 
with the probability that further 
players will be affected from 
Zambia, Zimbabwe and Zaire. 

There are 17 Malawi inter- 
nationals already banned by- 
FIFA for transferring to their 
prosperous, expelled neigh- 
bours. The latest to move is 
Gabriel Njerngo. the Malawi 
national goalkeeper, who has 
signed for the QwaQw# Correct 
team Fairway Stars, currently 
second bottom of the league. 
South African prosperity- in the 
almost exclusively black and 
totally integrated sport, ironi- 
cally poses a threat to other 
African nations trying to develop 
World Cop teams. 

The breweries' grant, spread 
over five years, is part of an 
ambitious NSL plan to establish 


From David Miller, Johannesburg 

a £3 million academy for raising 
the levels of coaching and 
administration for their two 
million registered players, and 
ultimately for helping to build, 
with foreign investment, their 
own stadiums. At present their 
teams are obliged to rent local 
authority grounds, with per- 
mission sometimes withdrawn 
wit boat reason at the last 
minnte. or to rent “white" rugby 
grounds such as Ellis Park 
which are in financial difficulty 
and welcome black money. 

Abdul Bhamiee. the public 
relations officer and mainspring 
of the NSL, is nare pen tent about 
the drain on other countries. 
“Professional football is an open 
market,” be says. “If players 
want to lead a better life by 
coming here, who are we to stop 
them. We believe In the forces of 
entertainment and democracy, 
and we want to develop the 
human resources and education 
of our people.” 


One of the many bizarre facets 
of the Rational social crisis, yet 
in this instance a cheerful part of 
football's integration, is that the 
current top team, Grinaker 
Rangers, is all-white yet owned 
by black directors. The chair- 
man is Victor Setbole, a broker 


for the Grfnaker BoBding Com- 
pany. who bought the dob last 
year for £60,000. He had won- 
dered whether he woaM get the 
loyalty of white players bat there 
has been no pre ssu r e on Alex 
Forbes, their manager and for- 
mer Arsenal and Scotland mter- 
nxoosai, to promote the several 
premising black and coloured 
players among a squad of 26, 
which he inns with George 
Easth a m - 

“ Any black player will only be 
selected on merit,” the amiable 
Setbole says. “Throughout the 
NSL, nobody has the issue of 
apartheid oa their mind when 
they are involved with footbalL” 

But be does not believe that 
the NSL would welcome re- 
admissioa to FIFA at this 
moment, eves were that pos- 
sible. it would, be argues, be 
unacceptable to go looking for 
international prestige by using 
sport as a ladder. “Before we 
join the FIFA highway. It is 
necessary to get everything right 
socially and internally,” he says. 
He bought a football dab as a 
means of helping to establish the 
community. Eighty per cent of 
the 15,000 crowds supporting 
Forbes' team are black: the 
manager travels animpeded ia

BOXING 

Chance for 
Marsh to 
prove he is 
ready 

By Sriknmar Sen 
Boxing Correspondent 

Terry Marsh, Britain's world- 
ranked light welterweight Euro- 
pean champion, gels his chance 
this afternoon to prove that bets 
ready to challenge Patrizio 
Oliva, of Italy, the world Box- 
ing Association champion. 

When March defends his title 
against another Italian, 

Francesco Prezioso. at the Paris 
Lido, Douglas. Isle of Man, he 
must dispell doubts about the 
left band be broke when he 
stopped Alessandro Scapecetii. 
yet another Italian, to win the 
European title last October. 
Against Oliva, who was voted 
the best boxer at the Moscow 
Olympics. March's jab will have 
to be in top shape. 

The doubts about his hand 
arose in his last defence in 
January against Tex 
N'Kalenkete. of France, March 
stopped using his left after two 
rounds and wrestled the French- 
man around the ring for the 
remaining ten boring rounds. If 
bis hand was giving him trouble 
it was the only thing he could do 
to save his title, even if tele- 
vision viewers at home were 
switching off. 

The next day. however. 
March said his hand was all 
right It was only because he 
thought that his hand was 
plaving up that he hung on to 
N*Kalenkete tightly as if be were 
rescuing the Frenchman from a 
fire in his proper job as a 
fireman in Basildon. It was not 
quite a convincing story. Today 
that hand will be put to the test. 

If Marsh’s hand is in feet in 
good order he should win 
clearly. Prezioso has not met a 
man so mentally sharp, quick, 
agile and fit as the former 
marine. With Oliva's energy 
devoted to chasing the world 
title, and Scapecdu forced into 
retirement after the sixth round 
knockout by Marsh, Prezioso 
bad little trouble winning his 
national title against moderate 
opposition. The Italian is not a 
puncher, having stopped only 
one opponent in his 18-bout 
career, and relies on boxing and 
evasive skills to survive. 

March, who relies on his jab 
to set his man up for the short 
body and head shots, may have 
trouble finding him and may be 
led a dance before collaring the 
Italian. March in full flow is 
exciting to watch and the crowd 
should be well entertained by 
this contesL 

Manxmen should also get 
their money's worth from the 
chief supporting contest in 
which Hughroy Currie, of 
Caiford, the British heavy- 
weight champion, defends 
against a stable mate of Frank 
Bruno. Horace Notice. 

Notice has boxed only 35 
rounds in eight bouts but looks 
the sharper and more alert and 
carries an explosive punch. 
Even though Currie has the 
heavier punch Notice is not 
averse to carrying the fight to 
the champion. 

The challenger, who like all 
Terry Lawless's boxers, is bound 
to be superbly turned out, will 
probably push Currie to a fester 
pace than the heavier champion 
would like in the hope of 
finishing off as soon as he begins 
to puff and his arms and legs 
sian to protest

The American Cougars make 
a interesting entry to the Mel- 
rose Sevens this afternooon at 
Greenyards. The Cougars, six of 
whom played in Hong Kong, 
include Tommie Smith, who 
was named player of the tour- 
nament- The Americans are all 
big. fost men who are keen to 
make an impression on the 
Scottish circuit. 

The other overseas team is foe 
Racing Club de Paris who list 
foe French international. Pardo 
amongst their players. The third 
invitation side are Wasps, who 
won the Middlesex tournament 
last season. They have three 
England backs. Baflev, Smith 
and Davies in their line-up. 

The main challenge by a 
Scottish side will come from 
Kelso, who hope to have their 


captain and hooker. Callander 
fiL The Border side have won 
there for the last two vears and 
with six of their men fresh from 
Hong Kong they are confident 
of success. The other home 
challengers will be Hawick, who 
will have gained confidence 
from their win in foe Gala 
tournament last Saturday. They 
have Cottrell deputising foe

Lochore. who wifi coach the

Romania’s 
tough task 

An infltrenza^strickea Roma- 
nian foam face a huge challenge 
when foe)* meet France in the 
northern. French, town of LiDe 
today. The Romanians, demor- 
alized after their 30*18 defeat 
against Scotland in Bucharest a 
fortnight imo. and in the throes 
of developing a team for next 
year’s World Cup. have never 
won an international on French 
soft. . . . 

For France, whose team will 
be the same as foe one which 
beat England last month to gain 
a share of the five-nations' 
championship, the match is an 
important part of the process of 
spreading the rugby gospel be-

Timms benefits from 
influence of Fletcher 

B; Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent - 


Swedes in 
title hunt 


Sally Timms, of Woodford 
Green, Essex, has beaten three 
seeded players to reach, today's 
girls' singles final of the British 
junior championships on shale, 
sponsored by foe Prudential 
Assurance Company and played 
at Wimbledon on courts seldom 
exposed to public scrutiny. The 
seeds dismissed by Miss 
Timms, aged’ 16, have been 
Alison Fleming (8th). Clare 
Wood (2nd), and. yeserday, 
Anne Simpkin (5th). 

Miss Timms. 5ft 6tn tall, is 
sturdy lass, who weighs in at 
almost ten stone. She is one of 
force teenagers who, in foe past 
two months, have benefited 
from the advice of Ken Fletcher, 
the onoe-renowned Australian 
who now manages the Slough 
Indoor Tennis Centre. 

Fletcher liked what he saw of 
Miss Timms, Kate Rickelt and 
Vafda Lake during foe junior 
indoor championships in Janu- 
ary. Sue Mappin, foe women's 
national team manager, agreed 
to allocate some of her budget to 
their advancement under 


Fletcher's guidance.. In return, 
she demanded of all three 
players “£2l worth of sweat an 
hour", as .Miss Mappin put ii 
yesterday. 

“They all think he’s terrific". 
Miss Mappin said. Miss Timms 
suggested foal Fletcher had been 
particularly helpful in terms of 
technique, ways of winning 
points, and what to think about 
between rallies. She confessed 
that, pre- Fletcher, her mental 
approach to competitive tennis 
had been far from ideal. 

These junior championships 
have had a wretched week: wet 
and windy, cold and dreary. 
Yesterday's play began two 
hours late — because frost had 
damaged the shale courts — and 
was then confined to the only 
court provided with electrical 
underground heating. The 
weather was chilly — but often 
sunny and embellished, visu- 
ally, by the slightest of snowfalls. 
In short, it was no day for tennis 
but. eventually, they played 
anyway. 


Sweden, maintained their 
dominatien of the WCT Finals 
on Tharsday aighf in Dallas 
when Stefan Edberg, the third 
seed, and the mueeded Anders 
Jarryd won straight-set victories 
to advance tetbesari-Emds. 

Ed berg, a quarter-final loser 
but year in his first WCT finals, 
beat the Frenchman Yannick 
Noah 6-3, 7-6, 7-6, and wffl non 
face the winner of foe match 
between Boris Becker, of West 
Germany, foe second seed, and * 
Faal Annaooae, of foe United 
States, in foe semi-finals on 
Saturday. 

Jarryd beat his fellow 
countryman, Joaltixa Nystrom. 
foe fourth seed. 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 ia 
an earfier match, in die semi' 
ftMlt he wffl play his compa- 
triot, Mats WHander, foe top 
seed, ensuring font at least one 
Swede wiB reach foe fatal for foe 
first time since Bjorn Borg lost 
to John McEnroe in 2979. 

Edbeig's t wo h oa r victory 
over Noah was a pleasant 
change from k&t' week's dismal 
first-round defeat in Atlanta fra 
the 20-yearwrid right-hander.

Wienecke pulls out 


By Philip Nkksan 


Frank Wienecke. the West 
German who in 1984 won foe 
Olympic light-middleweight ti- 
tle at the expense of Britain’s 
Neil Adams, will not after all be 
coming to meet Adams in the 
2 1st British Open champion- 
ships at Crystal Palace today 
despite being listed earlier as a 
member of bis country's team. 

Wienecke won the Dutch 
Open last weekend and has 
derided that the British event 
comes too soon after it This 
gives Adams a clearer run to 
what would be a record ninth 


British title, though it will be by 
no means easy. He will face a 
powerful challenge from Jean- 
Michel Berth et of France, foe 
American, Brett Barron, and his 
main domestic rival, Martin 
McSorley, of Scotland. 

Despite WieneckeV absence 
there is still a world-dam 'field 
for foe event in which Elvis 
Gordon. Britain's top heavy- 
weight, and Kerri tb Brown, an 
Olympic bronze medal winner 
at lightweight, will be hard 
pressed to win titles. ’

Rugby warm 
to Hewitt 
challenge 

- By Nicholas Keith 

The key factor on the second . 
.day of the Halford Hewitt 
yesterday was the weather and 
with - the word “thermal" on 
everyone's tips, you could be 
sure that foe conversation had 
turned to underwear rather than 
warm winds. 

The unfinished match be- 
tween Rugby and Hafleybury 
lived up to the best traditions of 
foe Hewitt. The derisive third 
game resumed at the nineteenth ijh 
in a flurry of snow, driven across 
the finks at Deal by foe biting 
north east wind. 

Gardner and Paflock missed a 
chance for Hafleybury at the 
second extra hole by taking 
throe, puns from no distance; 
Osborne saved Rugby with a 
long putt for a half at the third 
and the match ended in his 
side's favour at the short fourth 
■where a one iron off the tee was 
the order of the day. Rugby woo 
with a four.' ' 

in the prime match of foe 
second round. Sherborne found 
themselves up in .all five 
matches early, on . against#) 
Shrewsbury, but they allowed 
tilings to slip mainly through 
poorputting. 

In the bottom, half. 
Uppingham and Maxiborough, 
two of foe stronger teams, 
qualified to meet io the third 
round - this morning. Malvern 
narrowly defeat Stowe; their 
bottom pair got their noses in 
front at the seventeenth -

From John Woodcock Cricket Correspondent St John's, Antigua 


West Indies did not have 
things ail their own waj when 
the "fifth Test match, spon- 
sored by Cable &. Wireless, 
began here yesterday. Asked 
to bai on an under-prepared, 
somewhat unpredictible pilch, 
they could manage only SO for 
the loss of Grcenidee and 
Richardson from the first 36 
overs.

watered overnight. Gower 
opted in the end to bowl on iu 
though knowing i! would be 

slow" 


Botham was again at the 
centre of things," taking the 
first wicket to fall but missing 
two awkward catches at slip. 


Some offensive stuff in the 
two little local newspapers, 
aimed at Gooch, did not stop 
the people of Antigua filling 
the ground. Because of the 
cricket it had to be declared a 
public holiday, and there was 
more of a West ir.dian flavour 
to the atmosphere than at any 
previous time in the series.

Gatling's return. Unfortunate- 
ly. in the second over of the 
match Botham put down a 
low chance at second slip, 
offered bv Haynes off Foster. 


carry the attack to the faster 
bowlers. 


Although Gower decided 
that his damaged wrist would 
allow him to play. Smith stood 
down with a recurrence of 
back trouble. This has given 
Robinson a chance to redeem 
himself at the end or a 
disappointing series, on the 
pitch where, against the Lee- 
ward Islands, he made his best 
score of the tour. He is 
expected to bat at No 3.

This was much the nearest 
Foster came to taking a wicket 
in a wayward opening spell. 
Having got a couple of early- 
long hops out of his system. 
Botham was kept going for the 
first 95 minutes. He came 
within two of Lillee’s world 
record of 355 Test wickets 
when, in his sixth over, he 
uprooted Grcenidge’s off 
stump, having all-but caught 
and bowled him the ball 
before. The ball that did the 
trick was of full length and 
may have swung inside 
Green idge’s attempted drive. 


When Gower brought 
Emburey on, Richardson was 
a different player, anxiously 
popping forward as the field- 
ers closed in on him. In the 
last over before lunch he was 
caught at forward short leg. off 
bat and pad. Haynes's contri- 
bution to the morning's play 
was a mostly-dour 21. in 
which he gave no second 
chance. 


Go»er took long enough to 
put West Indies in to suggest 
that England's batsmen might 
be wanting to bowl and their 
bowlers to bat. There being a

into his stride, hitting Botham

This was the fifth time in a 
row that Richardson had fall- 
en to Emburey, who could 
have had Gomes, as well, in 
the first over of the afternoon. 
The ball bounced quite steeply 
as Gomes tried to force it 
away, and Botham, diving to 
his left at slip, juggled with the 
chance before putting it down. 


Emburey would as soon 
have lift to exploit in a pitch as 
turn, and soon afterwards 
Gomes was not quite on top of 
another ball to Emburey that 
was only just wide of giving 
Gatting a catch at cover point. 


Captain

curtain-raiser 


David Lawrence and Greg 
Thomas, who were rivals for 
an England place on the 
current*Wosi Indies lour, will 
open the bowling together for 
the firs: time when they play 
for MCC against the Britannic 
Assurance county champions. 
Middlesex, in the traditional 
opening same of the season at 
Lord's on April 23 to 25. 

The team, which was cho- 
sen. as usual, in consultation 
with the chairman of selectors. 
Peter May. is captained by 
Mark Nicholas, of Hampshire. 

By tradition, the reigning 
England captain is offered the 
job of leading the side, but 
David Gower was unable to 


accept. Nicholas will be hop- 
foi 


ing for similar batting success 
as in the corresponding game 
last spring, when he and 
Moxon scored centuries. 


Lawrence and Thomas 
burst on to the scene last 
summer and both were tipped 
to go to the West Indies, with 
Lawrence the favourite if only 
one were selected However, it 
was Thomas who toured the 
Caribbean, while Lawrence 
went on the B tour of Sri 
Lanka. 

Five of Lawrence's B tour 
colleagues are included in the 
side, including the lop four in 
the bailing order - Chris 
Smith. Moxon, Nicholas and 
Alhey - along with Cook, the 
former Leicestershire bowler 
now with Northamptonshire, 
who was the only specialist 
spinner in Sri Lanka. 

The attack is completed by 
Ellison and the left-arm spin- 
ner. Mini, of Hampshire, who 
will be bowling against his 
former colleagues at Middle- 


sex. the team he left three

Ellison is one of three 
members of Lhe England lour- 
ing team currently in the West 
Indies who will no doubt be 
wearing multiple sweaters 
during the match, which takes 
place only five days after they 
leave the sunshine of Antigua. 
Thomas and French are the 
others. 

French was always booked 
for this match, despite the 
claims that the B team wicket- 
keeper. Rhodes, has for fur- 
ther recognition.

Sharjah, United Arab Emir- 
ates (Agencies) - Australia 
crashed out of the Australasia 
Cup tournament here yester- 
day as a magnificent 95 by the 
Pakistan opener, Mudassar 
Nazar, helped his side to an 
cight-wicket victory in their 
first round tie. 

Australia won the toss and 
batted first an unbeaten 60 by- 
Ritchie taking them to 202 for 
seven. But the Pakistanis 
sailed past the total, reaching 
206 for two with five balls to 
spare. 

Mudassar’s 95 off 1 40 balls 
included five boundaries. But 
his hopes of a century' were 
dashed as. trying to force the 
pace, he was bowled by Reid. 
Mohsin Khan hit 46 before 
being trapped leg before by 
Bright.

Ringing in the new talent 


The Kraft Champions All tournament at 
Wembley today will again be the stage for 
leading countries to test young gymnastic 
talent in international performance (Peter 
Aykroyd writes). For example, the Soviet 
Union, the world's top gymnastic nation, are 
entering their national youth champions, 
Tatiana Godenko and Alexander Kolyvasov. 


The performance of Miss Godenko win be 
watched with great interest as Russian women 
gymnasts are now attempting to emulate the 
classical beam and floor styles of great 
gymnasts from the past Among the British 
entries is Sally Larner, who has recently 
completed a five-week, training session in 
Moscow. 


EQUESTRIANISM 


jand prix course 
offers comfort to Pyrah 



From Jenny MacArthnr, Gtiteborg. Sweden 


Malcolm Pyrah has two 
main worries as he enters 
tomorrow's third and final 
round of the Volvo World 
Cup here. The first is whether 
Towerlands AngJezarke’s age 
— he is now 1 5 — will begin to 
tell over the gruelling two- 
round grand prix course which 
awaits them: the second con- 
cerns his own fitness. He is 
suffering from severe back 
trouble and is riding in a 
corset. 


Neither worry distracted 
him in Thursday night's first 
round, a speed class, in which 
they finished runners-up to 
Australia’s Jeff McVean on 
Furst Z. Pyrah. like Nick 
Skelton on Raffles St James 
and John Whitaker on Next 
Hopscotch, who finished fifth 
and sixth respectively, was 
pleasantly surprised at the size 
of the course which the Swiss. 
Paul Weier. had built, 
it was technical as well as 


big. which suited the Irish- 
bred Towerlands Anglezarke 
well. He has rarely jumped 
cleaner or better. Afterwards 
Pyrah said that two years ago, 
when the equivalent class in 
the final was much smaller, he 
went at the same speed and 
finished 25th.

If Pyrah is to win the final 
and give Britain her first 
World Cup victory, he will 
have to stop giving advice to 
McVcan. The Australian rid- 
er. who is based in Gloucester- 
shire. is trained by Ted Edgar 
when in England but out here 
he turned to Pyrah for advice. 
Pyrah toid him. among other 
things, to ride carefully. 

"It was very sporting of him 
really," McVean said after his 
win. while Pyrah. standing 
beside him, winced. They will 
both have to keep a wary eye 
on Canada's Ian Millar, lying 
third after the first round, on 
Big Ben. who jumped every bit 
as cleanly as Towerlands 
Anglezarke but was slower. 


The course, described by' 
Millar as “confusing" put a 
premium on the rider's experi- 
ence. John Whitaker, compet- 
ing in his eighth final, had to 
draw heavily on his after 
knocking down the first fence 
on Next Hopscotch. Outward- 
ly unruffled, he went on to 
complete the rest of the diffi- 
cult course faultlessly. Hop- 
scotch is going so well that he 
decided to ride him. and not 
the less experienced Milton, in 
Iasi night's second leg of the 
final. 

Skelton and Raffles St 
James also had a frustrating 
knock down at a comparative- 
ly easy fence. His came at 
fence five, an oxer over water, 
but fortunately his quick time 
kept him well in contention. 
Michael Whitaker was less 
fortunate: he has not yet found 
top form with Next Warren 
Point, who had the last two 
fences down.

Leading clubs’ test of resources 


By Clive White 


Seldom has the role of the 
squad player been more signif- 
icant than it is in this season’s 
championship, becoming ever 
more dramatic after Manches- 
ter United’s monopoly. 
United's dream of ending a 
1 9-year famine in this compe- 
tition was shattered by inju- 
ries that they could not 
disguise. Now to a lesser 
extent the season is taking its 
toll on the joint leaders. 
Liverpool and Everton. 

But the Merseysiders are 
better equipped than United 
at finding nicely-rounded 
players to plug their holes. 
Everton must have feared that 
their title would slip from 
them when they lost Southall, 
their goalkeeper, with a bro- 
ken ankle. If Grobbelaar cost 
Liverpool 15 points, as has 
been alleged, then Southall 
must have saved Everton 
about the same. Then along 
came Mimms and the 
“irreplaceable” was replaced 
Similarly Liverpool have been 
able to call upon Dalglish to 
fill the void left by the 
irrepressible Walsh. 

One could hardly imagine 
better quality substitutes than 
Gillespie and Heath, who

SPORT IN BRIEF 


Belgians 

criticized 


Zurich (Reuter) — The Eu- 
ropean Football Union has 
criticized Belgian security 
forces, which it blames partly 
for the tragedy at the Europe- 
an Cup final at the Heysel 
Stadium in Brussels that 
claimed 39 fives last May. The 
criticism is in a report Hans 
Bangencr. the UEFA general 
secretary, will present to a 
UEFA congress in Portugal on 
April 24. 

“The English 

vandals... would never have 
been able to perform such 
lcnible deeds and create such 
misery if they had not been 
helped by the frightful incom- 
petence of the Belgian security 
forces,” Bangerter said. He 
regretted that guidelines 
drawn up 10 years ago had 
failed io prevent the disaster. 



Sad Britain 


Karachi — The British 
hockey team watched Paki- 
stan beat Australia 3-1 to 
snaich the bronze medal on

ons Trophy tournament here

writes). Earlier. West Germa- 
ny beat the Netherlands 2-1 to 
win the gold for the first time, 
Australia finishing second.' It 
was a disappointment for 
Britain, but they had not 
played well enough. 


The former Finnish world 
champion, Ari Vatanen 
(above), said in Helsinki yes-

Krstzert, who sacked his 
caddy only two hoars before
