Labour aims 


$ 



order vote 


By Richard Evans, Lobby Reporter 


Mr Gerald Kaufman, the 
shadow Home Secretary, is 
planning a dramatic bid to 
*«jvrest the law and order initia- 
tive from the Conservatives 
and promote Labour as the 
party to beat crime. 

He is preparing, with his 
home affairs team in the 
. Commons, what is being de- 
scribed as a comprehensive 
and major policy speech in 
which he will give details of 
Labour's approach to crime 
and the police, with special 
emphasis on crime preven- 
tion, and covering also drugs, 
hooliganism, prisons, guns 
and Baud. 

At the same time, Mr 
Kaufman is actively seeking to 
improve Labour's relations 
with the police and on May 20 
will address a specially-ar- 
ranged fringe meeting at the 
Police Federation annual con- 
ference in Scarborough, north 
Yorkshire, where he will out- 
line the party’s views and allay 
fears that Labour views them 
as a hostile force. 

His wide-ranging policy 
speech, to be delivered after 
the Police Federation meeting, 
is likely to emphasize that the 
police alone cannot deal with 
crime, and that crime preven- 
tion needs improved relations 
between the community and 
police. 

Mr Kaufman has promised 
already that a future Labour 
government would provide 
, specific crime-prevention 
grants for owner-occupiers

and tenants. He is likely to 
focus on the need for better- 
designed estates and public 
places to eliminate the 
favourite haunts of muggers 
and drug dealers. 

Other ideas include: a foster 
response to vandalism and 
quicker renovation of derelict 
property, more caretakers, 
park-keepers and public trans- 
port atiendents to act as a 
deterrent against crime, extra 
aid for crime-prevention agen- 
cies and special facilities, in- 
cluding emergency telephone 
numbers, for people to use to 
talk about problems before 
they lead to crime. 

It is being suggested that the 
Home Office could produce 
an annual report listing the 10 
most successful schemes to 
reduce or prevent crime, while 
local authorities and compa- 
nies publish the crime preven- 
tion measures they have 
adopted. 

The emphasis on crime

is 

Mr Kaufman, who plans 
law and order initiative. 


prevention is coupled with a 
wish to tackle the lack of jobs, 
poverty and bad housing, 
which are seen as helping 
crime to flourish. 

Mr Kaufman is expected to 
propose that the community 
has more say in the way it is 
policed by means of demo- 
cratically elected police com- 
mittees countrywide and 
community police councils. 

He wants more police on 
the beat, longer police train- 
ing, better firearms training 
and independent investigation 
of all complaints against 
police. 

A better deal for police 
officers would include an im- 
proved career structure, a 
better compensation proce- 
dure and free insurance for 
them and their families. 

On prisons and sentencing 
Mr Kaufman is being urged to 
commit Labour to reduce the 
prison population by produc- 
ing alternatives to custody and 
executive release of non-vio- 
lent offenders. 

Minimum standards in 
prisons with better facilities 
for work and education, and 
improved preparation for re- 
lease. are also a likely priority. 

Mr Kaufman’s package 
could include as key items 
tighter gun laws, a nationwide 
campaign against alcohol 
abuse, increased financial 
backing for victim support 
schemes, new laws on racial 
harassment and a tougher 
crackdown on financial fraud.

Marathon 
victory for 
Japanese 

By Michael Horsnell 

Toshihiko Seko, the Zen- 
trained Japanese runner who 
describes running as his only 
girl friend, although be has a 
wife who is eight months 
pregnant, thrilled to the loneli- 
ness of the long distance 
runner yesterday when he left 
the rest of the field in the 
London Marathon on the 
horizon. 

Seko. aged 29. whose ap- 
proach to running is a mixture 
of religious discipline and 
pain, romped home in two 
hrs, 10 mins, two secs - fast 
enough to have had the time 
to fly halfway home to 
Yokkaiichi before the strag- 
glers in the record field of 
18,336 starters crossed the 
finishing line four hours be- 
hind him after losing their 
euphoria in the rain. 

Inscrutably he said: “They 
must be feeling very hungry, 
but I am very happy." 

Breaking the grip of four 
consecutive British victories, 
Seko beat Hugh Jones, the 
1982 champion, into second 
place by 1 min 40 secs after 
running the second half of the 
race alone. The first woman 
across the line was the Norwe- 
gian Grete Waitz. aged 32, in a 
personal best of two hrs. 24 
mins, 54 secs. Nine runners

Ilea exam 
score 30% 
below par 

By Lucy Hodges 
Education Correspondent 

Examination results for sec- 
ondary school pupils in inner 
London are 30 per cent below 
the national average, and 
worse than those for pupils in 
secondary modem schools, 
according to a survey pub- 
lished today. 

These findings, which come 
in a report from the National 
Council for Educational Stan- 
dards, show that O level and 
CSE results for London chil- 
dren are also substantially 
below those for comparable 
comprebensive schools out- 
side London. 

The authors of the survey - 
John Marks, Caroline Cox 
and Maciej Poraian- 
Srzednicki — point out that 
the Inner London Education 
Authority spends 40 per cent 
more on each pupil than most 
other councils, yet pupils of all 
abilities in London do worse 
than similar pupils elsewhere. 
They say the lowest ability 
groups suffer most 
Their report, timed for pub- 
lication just before the Ilea 
elections on May 8, will be 
rejected by the authority on 
methodological grounds. 

The research found big dif- 
ferences between schools. In 
some Ilea comprehensives. 
particularly at the voluntary- 
aided church schools, children 
do as well as anywhere else. 

All exam results are much 
better for pupils at Ilea volun- 
tary schools — about 21 per 
cent better for the brightest 
pupils. 35 per cent better for 
average pupils, and 47 per 
cent better for the least dever 
pupils. 

The survey was given a 
critical reception yesterday. 
Dr John Gray. Reader in 
Education at Sheffield Uni- 
versity, said: 

“The weakness of Cox and 
Marks’ approach is that it does 
not properly compare like 
with like. The latest DES 
report and our own analyses 
use more sophisticated proce- 
dures. They do not confirm 
the claim that the lira is an 
under-performing authority.""

Russians 
collect 
US Fill 
wreckage 

From Robert Fisk 
Tripoli 

The Libyans are believed to 
have let the Russians collect 
the remains of the American 
Fill bomber shot down near 
Tripoli during last week’s air 
raid. 

Colonel Gadaffi, who appar- 
ently gave die Soviet Union 
permission to take the wreck- 
age in a moment of anger after 
tiie bombing, is now said by 
several of his officials to regret 
bitterly his decision as he had 
wanted to put the. plane on 
public display. ' 

Phit of the aircraft — a 
wheel and a section of one 
wing — fell into the village of 
Tajoura, according to officials 
here. Journalists were taken to 
the village only hours after the 
air rani but were toM the 
wreckage bad been taken away 
“by the Air Force". 

A subsequent report by 
Jana, the official news agency, 
claimed its two-man crew had 
been *iuDed by the citizens" 
because the Americans had 
“shot dead Libyan fishermen 
in the Golf of Sirte". In fact, 
the crew are thought to have 
died in the crash. 

In Kuwait, the newspaper Al 
Itihad has reported that the 
American jet fell into the 
Mediterranean and that the 
Soviet and Libyan navies were 
trying to rase it from the sea 
bed. But the Russians are said 
here to have taken the wreck- 
age to the Soviet Union within 
24 hours of the raid, leaving 
Colonel Gadaffi with nothing 
to show to foreign television 
crews. 

Part of an aero-engine has 
been produced in Tripoli and 
officials are now supporting 
the theory it came from the 
Fill. It actually comes from

Howe hints bases 
may be used again 

By Richard Evans, Lobby Reporter 


Sir Geoffrey Howe, Foreign 
Secretary, yesterday declined 
to eliminate the possibility of 
American bases being used 
again for a strike on Libya. 

But with the EEC council of 
foreign ministers meeting in 
Luxembourg today, he insist- 
ed that if Europe could agree 
on a powerful package of 
measures aimed al countering 
ColonaJ Gadaffi 's state-direct- 
ed terrorism the chances of 
President Reagan requesting 
to use the bases a second time 
would be much less likely. 

He also emphasized that it 
was crucial for untjpiying 
problems in the Mi doe East

to be tackled with fresh 
vigour. 

The sense of frustration at 
the lade of firm action by 
Britain's European allies was 
summed up yesterday by Mr 
George Younger, Secretary of 
State for Defence, who said 
they had been "deplorably 
weak". 

Mr Neil Kinnock, the La- 
bour leader, claimed yesterday 
the American attack was spe- 
cifically intended to kill Colo- 
nel Gadaffi. 


"I have nothing but con- 
tempt and detestation for 
Gadaffi. like every other per- 
son, but the fact remains it 
was an attempt at 
assassination." Using Fill 
bombers was aclumsy and 
dangerous form of attack, he 
said. 

Mr Edward Heath yesterday 
doubted the ability of the 
Government to survive if 
faced with a another request 
from President Reagan to use 
British bases. 

• WASHINGTON: In an 
American television inter- 
view, Mr Younger said yester- 
day that President Reagan had 
agreed that any further appli- 
cations for British assistance 
concerning attacks on Libya 
would be treated as a new 
request to be considered on its 
merits (Christopher Thomas 
writes). 

It is believed that an appar- 
ent plot to attack a United 
States officers’ dub in Ankara 
was planned before Monday's 
raid. 

• ANKARA: In Turkey, au- 
thorities said on Saturday that 
they thwarted two attempts to 
attack American targets, and 
were questioning four Libyans 
in connection with one at- 
tempt (Reuter reports). 


Gorbachov talks still 
on despite US ‘poison 9 


Potsdam (AP) — Mr 
Mikhail Gorbachov, the 
Kremlin leader, said yesterday 
that he was still prepared to 
meet President Reagan this 
year despite recent American 
actions which were “poison- 
ing the atmosphere.’’ 

Speaking in Potsdam, East 
Germany, Mr Gorbachov said 
he was willing to meet Mr 
Reagan "if the United States 
realizes that it is necessary 
“We are ready for serious 


steps toward peace, but if it 
goes on doing as it is today, 
trying to poison the atmo- 
sphere, this will throw a 
shadow over any future 
meeting,” he said. 

Mr Gorbachov, who spoke 
at the Cecilienhof, a 
country house where the Allies 
met in 1945 to dedde on the 
division of defeated Germany, 
did not say what American 
actions h&d M “poisoned the 
■ atmosphere. 


Safe-house link with bomb 


By Stewart Tendler 
Crime Reporter 

Scotland Yard detectives 
yesterday searched a London 
“safe-house" thought to have 
been used by a group of Arabs 
linked to the plan to blow up 
an El Al flight and Hs 400 
passengers last week. 

The house was searched as 
Nezar Hindawi. a Jordanian, 
aged 35. continued to be 
questioned at Paddington 
Green Police Station about 
the bomb attempt. 

Mr Hindawi was arrested at 
an Earls Court hotel on Friday 
night after the Yard issued his 
description. He is being held 
under the Prevention or Ter- 
rorism Acl 

The bouse in south west 
London was rented and occu- 


pied by two err three Arabs 
who disappeared soon after 
the bomb was discovered last 
Thursday morning at an El Al 
check-in point at Heathrow 
Airport. 

Detectives from the Yard's 
anti-terrorist branch have 
been sifting papers for dues. 

They may get sufficient 
identification from the house, 
in the Fulham or Earls Court 
area, to pass intelligence to 
other European countries. 

The discovery of the house 
and the possible link between 
the men and the time bomb, 
adds to the speculation that 
the bombing was the work of a 
Palestinian group working 
with other terrorist organiza- 
tions in Europe. 

It was discovered in the 


raise bottom of a hold-all 
carried by Miss Anne-Marie 
Doreen Murphy, Mr 
Hindawi's girlfriend, as she 
went aboard the flight to Tel 
Aviv. Miss Murphy more than 
five months pregnant, worked 
as a chambermaid at the 
Hilton Hotel and was held by 

S tlice for more than two days 
r questioning. 

Police said from early in 
their investigation that they 
believed she had been duped 
and she was released on 
Saturday night. 

She is now thought to be 
staying at a secret address 
under the protection of armed 
police. Members of her family, 
who live near Dublin, came to 
London at the weekend.

Shakespeare wins a Queen’s Award 


By Teresa Poole 

The Royal Shakespeare 
Theatre of Stratford-npon- 
Aron has become the first 
theatre to win a Queen’s 
Award for exports. The 1986

In the period under review 
the company toured the US

Talks on 
child 
murders 
link 

By Piter Davenport 
and Stewart Tendler 

Detectives investigating the 
murder of Sarah Harper, aged 
10, will attend a conference al 
Scotland Yard today called to 
establish any possible links in 
brutal child- kfliings and ab- 
ductions in the past eight 
years. 

Officers from more than 20 
forces will be at the meeting 
called by CIL the criminal 
intelligence department under 
Commander Philip Corbett 
Yesterday senior detectives 
from Nottingham and West 
Yorkshire emphasized that 
the conference had been 
planned before the discovery 
of Sarah's body in the river 
Trent on Saturday. 

Mr Ron Hadfiefd, deputy 
chief constable of Notting- 
ham, did not want to be drawn 
on connections with other 
unsolved child murders so 
early in the inquiry, in case, he 
said, speculation had an ad- 
verse effect on possible 
witnesses.- 

However. he added: “Unk- 
ing is dearly something we 
have an open mind on." 

The conference will be look- 
ing at the murder of 12 
children and another four 
abductions in which bodies 
were never found. They go 
back eight years involving 
children between the ages of 
five and 16 years. The detec- 
tives will be seeking to estab- 
lish if there are common links 
between any of the cases. 

Yesterday in a radio inter- 
view Commander Corbett 
said: “They are all cases where 
blanks have been drawn. They 
are extremely frustrating be- 
cause of the enormous effort 
that has been expended. 

“Yet we are unable to say 
whether there are positive 
connections to be found- It is 
on Monday that we hope, if 
there are connections to be 
made, that we can in fact 
make them." 

Detectives from West York- 
shire, in charge of the Sarah 
Harper inquiry, win, it is 
uricierstood, be looking partic- 
ularly closely at the abduction 
and murder of Susan Max- 
well, aged 11, in 1982 and 
Caroline Hogg, aged five, a 
year later. 

Both children were 
snatched near their homes and 
their bodies later found hun- 
dreds of miles away close to 
motorways. Susan, token 
while walking near her home 
at Coldstream in the Borders 
was found 15 days later, 200 
miles away at Loxley in 
Staffordshire. Caroline, from 
Edinburgh, was found 10 days 
after she vanished, her body 
dumped near Twycross in 
Leicestershire. 

The nationwide search for 
Sarah turned into a murder 
inquiry 24 days after she 
disappeared from her home in 
Morfey, near Leeds, while

MP quits 
over 

Irish deai 

Lord Cranbome. Conserva- 
tive MP for Dorset South, has 
announced he will not be 
fighting the next general elec- 
tion. largely because of the 
Government's “imposition” 
of the Anglo-Irish agreement. 

Lord Cranbome. aged 39, 
heir to the Marquess of Salis- 
bury. said that the Conserva- 
tive Party had abandoned the 
union of Great Britain and 
Northern Ireland. 

In a letter, he said:*T foresee 
the non-Parliamentaiy calls 
on my lime growing consider- 
ably within the next two or 
three years.” 

But the consideration which 
lipped the balance and decid- 
ed him to return to private 
life, was the Government's 
imposition of the Anglo-Irish 
agreement on the people of 
Northern Ireland. 

“1 would find it very diffi- 
cult to stand at the next 
general election as a candidate 
of a party which, in my 
opinion, has. contrary to its 
declared principles, aban- 
doned the Union of Great 
Britain and Northern 
Ireland.” 

Lord Cranbome entered the 
house of Commons in 1979. 
At the last general election he 
retained the seat for the 
Conservatives with a major- 
ity of 15.098 over the SDP- 
Alliance candidate in a four- 
cornered contest 


what these people might want 
to do.” 

She added that the British 
police had treated .Anne-Marie 
“marvellously” but that she 
was obviously upset at what 
had happened. "We want her 
back in Ireland as she will 
need a lot of help to get over

Directors 
want 25% 
target on 
income tax 

By David Smith 
j Economics Correspondent 

The Institute of Directors 
I yesterday called on the Chan- 
cellor of the Exchequer to 
1 formalize his target of a 
25 per cent basic rale of in- 
come tax. by publishing a 
medium-term taxation 
strategy. 

The cut in the basic rate 
should be accompanied by a 
reduction in the top rate of tax 
, to 50 per cent, the institute 
says. This compares with a 
proposed top rate in the 
United States of 35 per cent. 

In a report prepared as 
evidence for the Commons 
treasury and civil service com- 
mittee, the businessmen’s 
group says that last month's 
Budget put die Government 
"back on the path to radical 
reform and to significant re- 
ductions in the overall lax 
burden”. 

The Chancellor should now 
go further and publish a 
medium -term tax strategy 
which would commit the 
Government to reducing tax- 
ation every year and bring 
pressure on ministers to con- 
trol public spending, the insti- 
tute says. 

Any public spending over- 
runs or tax revenue shortfalls 
should be dealt with through 
spending cuts, not the post- 
ponement of tax cuts.

changes in . foe way in which 
servicemen suspected of com. 
mjrting offences are hand?*; 
by the Armed Forces. 

ft is understood, however, 
that the report, by Mr David

ing foe rules during interroga- 
tions to obtain statements, 
which led to eight servicemen 
being charged under the Oflfc-

AH were acquitted after a 
six-month trial, much of ji 
conducted in camera, at the 
Central Criminal Court. 

Mr George Younger, Secre-

been considering the report 
for neariy two weeks, and it is 
expected to be published 
month. 

Mr Calculi is understood to 
recommend that the proce- 
dures by which tire services 
conduct inquiries into possi- 
ble offences should be brought

Paisley campaign for rates strike 





By Richard Ford 

Fourteen police officers 
were injured yesterday as 
‘'loyalist” rioters rampaged 
through two Northern Ireland 
towns, hurling petrol bombs at 
the Royal Ulster Constabulary 
and smashing windows in 
shops and offices. 

Trouble erupted in 
Portadown, Co Armagh, 
hours after about a thousand 
loyalists marched to protest at 
the use of plastic bullets. An 
RUC officer suffered serious 
iqjuries when he was sur- 
rounded, dragged, kicked and 
beaten by a mob of youths. 

Ten officers were injured in 
the rioting, which ended at 
about 3.30 am after police bad 
made seven arrests, and fired 
28 plastic baton rounds tc 
, disperse crowds. A few miles 


away more police officers were 
injured during street distur- 
bances in Lisburn, Co Antrim. 
Nine people were arrested. 

Early on Saturday police 
detained 26 youths during 
troubles in the Sandy Row 
area of Belfast when petrol 
bombs were thrown at tbe 
police and buses hijacked and 
burnt by loyalist mobs. The 
rioting came in the wake of the 
funeral of the first Protestant 
to die from injuries received 
after being hit by a plastic 
bullet. 

On the political front, 
unionist leaden will this week 
unveil new tactics in their 


unionists wilJ be urged to 
withhold paying rates and 
television licences. 

Mr James Molyneaux, lead- 
er of the Official Unionists, 
and tbe Rev Jan Paisley, 
leader of the Democratic 
Unionists, are expected to 
announce the new tactics at a 
meeting of the Northern Ire- 
land Assembly on Wednesday 
in a display aimed at convinc- 
ing their followers that they 
have a coherent strategy and 
that unionist unity remains 
firm. 

The differences between the 
two parties were shown at the 
weekend when tbe annual 


campaign against the Anglo- conference of the Democratic 


Irish agreement. 

The increase in loyalist 
protests is likely to include 
civil disobedience in which 


Linionist Party heard hardline 
speeches demanding the use of 
“physical force". The Rev 
William McCrea. the DUP 


MP for Mid Ulster, asked why 
the Prime Minister had not 
bombed Provisional IRA 
headquarters in Dublin. 

“Why has she not sent the 
bombers of tbe British forces 
to bomb installations in Dun- 
dalk, Drogheda, Grossmaglen 
and Carrickmore?.” 

However Mr Paisley insist- 
ed that the unionist aim was a 

constitutional settlement and 
that whatever a few hotheads 
suggested he was not prepared 
to opt for confrontation. 

As Mr Paisley attacked the 
agreement, in Dublin Mr 
Charles Haughey, leader of 
Fianna Fail, was also con- 
demning it 

He attacked the agreement 
as legitimizing partition, but 
said the situation in the north 
was increasingly “ominous".

‘Loyalists’ set for murderous summer 



By Gavin Bell 

The militant “loyalists’* of 
Ulster are emerging from a 
winter of discontent and pre- 
paring for a summer of mur- 
derous political violence. Ask 
anybody to the ShaakiH. 

An evening spent in the 
pa ramil itary offices and social 
clubs of the stronghold of 
Protestant foyalfcm in west 
Belfast can lea re no doubt of 
mounting fury against the 
Anglo Irish agreement. 

Invective is ranning high 
against Mrs Thatcher, who 
signed the November agree- 
ment giving Dublin a consulta- 
tive role in Northern Ireland 
affairs, and Sir John Hennou, 
chief constable of the RUC 
who is accused of ns ing his 
men as a political took 

Of more immediate concern 
is apparent disenchantment 
with local Unionist politicians 
and the prospect of Protestant 
anger and frustration leading 
to widespread violence daring 
Ulster's traditional marching 
season, which gets underway 
with a procession planned by 


tile Apprentice, Boys of Derry 
in Portadown on May 5. 

A portent of things to come 
bit the streets of Belfast and 
Lisburn this weekend when 
g an g s of youths set op barri- 
cades of burning vehicles and 
attacked police with stones, 
petrol bombs and automatic 
weapons. The trouble began 
on Thursday night a few boors 
after the first Protestant vic- 
tim of police plastic ballets 
had been buried. 

Mr John McMichael of the 
Ulster Defence Association, 
the biggest Protestant para- 
military organization, recently 
issued a succinct warning “for 
possibly tbe first time, loyal- 
ists have come fare to face with 
lire possibility of defeat. 

“ We can smell a united 
Ireland and are battling for 

our existence we have all 

the resources at our disposal to 
make and keep Northern Ire- 
land ungovernable without tbe 
consent of the majority.” 

A more explicit view may be 
held behind a shabby black 
door sandwiched between a 
fish shop and a hairdressing 
salon on Shaakiii Road. A

middle-aged man standing for 
a desk adorned with a replica 
of a hman skull was intro- 
duced as one of tbe UDA's top 
‘‘brigadiers” in command of 
between 800 and 1,000 men. 

“People are getting fed np 
with the potftkaans. Tbe

tance to die agreement is seen 
as an abject failure. They’ve 
jnst been making fools of 
themselves, they're nothing 
more to offer. They’re throw- 
ing it tbe paramilitary's way,* 4 
he said. 

As silent men grouped 
around him nodded agree- 
ment, Mr Little said violence 
now appeared their only op- 
tion and that many people who 
had always abhorred such 
tactics were now actively en- 
couraging his clandestine 
militiamen.

. The snobbishness of parents

Mr Heap said yesterday that 
northern universities have 
been suffering a decline in 
applicants for two years. 
‘There is a general feeling 
among southern parents that 
any university south of a line 
between the Severn and the 
Wash, must be good, but as 
you go further north they are 
not so good," he said 

This was simply not true, he 
emphasized. According to sur- 
veys conducted by The Times 
Higher Education Supple- 
ment. northern universities 
are. if anything, more highly 
rated by academics for their 
teaching and research than 
southern ones. 


Liverpool University, 
which Mr Heap said was 
outstanding for science and 
technology, was suffering a 
decline in applicants because 
of Derek Hatton.

‘ and sterilizations were carried 
; out in 1983 with the figures 
• ; likely to have risen since then 
’after a “piD scare" in the 
'■ autumn of that year, she says. 

While figures for male and 
female sterilization are rising, 
vasectomy is gaining populari- 
- ty more quickly. 

“Despite the feet that vasec- 
tomy is a safer, simpler and 
less costly operation, steriliza- 
tion has in the past been more 
popular," she says. In 1970 
seven women were sterilized 
for every three men who had a 
. vasectomy. But fay 1983 the 
4V numbers undergoing the two 
procedures were roughly 
equal. 


Cost of car 
hire ‘may 
rise 10%’ 

By Derek Harris 
Industrial Editor 

Britain's car renters, hit by 
. cost problems and the threat of 
. a big drop in American tour- 
. ists this summer, are forecast- 
ing a big rise in rental charges. 
Rates have been virtually stat- 
ic ■ k for about 18 months but 
„ could rise by 10 per cent or 
• . more. 

Cancellations by Americans 

* are starting to come through 
and appear to be linked with 

■ . worries over terrorist attacks. 

Mr Max McHardy, Euro- 
. pean vice- president for mar- 
and sales at Bndaet, the 
world's third largest car rental 
company, said it looked like it 
was going to be a bad time for 
Europe, including Britain with 
a do wntu rn of as much as a 
fifth. 

Car renters likely to be most 
affected are those accounting 
for much of the airp orts 
k , business or with strong US 

«■ links. _ - ... 

The phasing out of capital 
allowances is now also biting. 

The change of the car registra- 
tion year start from August to 
October is expected to hit 
renters' second-hand car val- 
ues. Many change fleets in the ;

fc £50,000 watch 
theft in street 

Police yesterday appealed 
for information to help them 
trace one of the most expen- 
sive watches in Britain, a 
man's diamond-siuddcd 
Rolex Oyster. worth £5U,uw. 

It was missing after two 
people were robbed in the 
stirct in Hyson Gram, Not- 
tingham, and police described 
^ . it as a very unusual watch. 

Pit overtime 

The 8.500 miners at North 
Derbyshire colliery .are sus- 
pending thei r overtime ban 
&>m today so that talks can 
take place with the coal board. 


“If it is the young middle 
classes who spearhead social 
trends then the shift towards 
vasectomy might become 
even more obvious. Once 
described as the ‘blue collar 
operation', vasectomy has 
been steadily gaining favour 
among middle class men of all 
ages, but those in their 20s are 
now four times as likely as 
their partners to have been 
sterilized." 

Concern has been mounting 
about the apparently rising 
tide of childless women in 
their 20s who could obtain 
sterilization, but the evidence 
for that happening is not 
strong, the article says. 

The Genera] Household . 
Survey of 1983 showed fewer 
than 1 per cent of childless 
men and women in their 20s 
had been sterilized and in 
] 983 only 3 per cent of couples 
of any age with no children 
had elected to be sterilized. 

New and potentially revers- 
ible methods of sterilization 
are being developed which 
could remove the main draw- 
back of that method of family 
planning. 

Miss Wellings says there 
seems no real grounds for 
alarm over the ability of 
existing counselling services 
to cope as the proportion of 
sterilizations is falling among 
those most at risk of regretting 
the decision; younger candi- 
dates and those who are 
sterilized at times of emotion- 
al trauma such as abortion or 
childbirth. 


sex link 
to allergy 

Sex and exercise were 
among the enormous range of 
things people could be allergic 
to, according to a book pub- 
lished today by • the 
Consumers' Association 
(Nicholas Timmins writes). 

Statistics on what propor- 
tion of people suffer from 
allergy were unreliable, Mary 
Steel in Understanding Aller- 
gies. says. However, under- 
standing allergies was 
expected to improve is the 
next 10 years. 

General practitioners often 
failed to appreciate the impor- 
tance of allergy as a possible 
cause of symptoms, she says. 

Date of birth may have some 
effect In the UK birth between 
May and October is associat- 
ed with boose-dust mite aller- 
gy. 

Perfumes, preservatives in 
shampoos, diet and pets could 
all produce allergic reactions. 
Some women have been found 
to be allergic to their partner's 
sperm and exercise has been 
found both to help asthmatics 
ami to trigger attacks in 
susceptible individuals. 

Mary Steel highlights the 
growing nmnbers of people 

turning to complementary 
rather than orthodox medicine 
in search of relief But anyone 
considering alternative thera- 
py should check that the 
practitioner belongs to a rec- 
ognized association.

Austin’s luxury car a 
glimpse of the future 

By Gifford Webb, Motoring Correspondent 


Austin Rover is trying for 
the limelight at the Turin 
Motor Show this week with 
the unveiling today of a 
luxurious coupe of the future. 

The Rover Coupe Concept 
Vehicle (CCV) will not go into 
production in its present form. 
Unlike some rival “concept" 
models prepared expressly for 
motor shows the design ap- 
pears to be practical, and 
indicates the company's 
thinking on a coupe to follow 
the Rover 800 saloon, which 
will be launched in a few 
months. 

The construction of the 
body shell is conventional 
steel except for the roof panel. 
This is made from extremely 
slippery, ceramic-coated poly- 
carbonate mounted on a steel 
frame. The result is a remark- 
able aerodynamic car with a 
drag coefficient of 0.27. belter 



Two saved from blast 
at council flat block 


Two men who were trapped 
when an explosion tore apart a 
block of council flats were 
described as satisfactory in 
hospital yesterday. 

Mr Lyndon Thomas and 
Mr Thomas Williams, both jn 
their 40s. were buried in 
debris after an explosion at the 
council block in Hendre Farm 
Drive. Ringland. Newport,

Mr Norman Fowler, Secre- 
tary of Stale for Social Ser- 
vices, is being urged to 
overrule departmental opposi- 
tion to a Conservative MFs 
Bill designed to improve the 
protection of children in care. 

The Department of Health 
and Social Security and Mr 
Ray Whitney, who is Under- 
secretary of State for Health, 
is resisting Mr Dennis 
Walters's Bu, which would 
involve magistrates in deri- 
sions about whether children 
who have been victims of 
serious abuse should be al- 
lowed to go back to their 
parents. 

Although the Bill has re- 
ceived a second reading and 
passed its committee stage, 
Mr Walters, MP for Westbury, 
has been told that the DHSS 
does not want it to become 
law. They do not want the 
derisions in such cases to be 
taken away from social work- 


ers, arguing that the whole 
procedure would be slowed 
down. Without government 
support the Bill cannot 
succeed. 

Last week, Mr Walters and 
other sponsors of the measure, 
Mr Roger Sims. MP for 
Chislehurst, and Mrs Virginia 
Bottom ley, MP for Surrey 
South West, saw Mr Fowler in 
a last-ditch attempt to save the 
BilL 

They pointed out how they 
had already compromised on 
the court recommendation, 
making it applicable only to 
children who had been vic- 
tims of cruelty, abuse and 
moral neglect, and only to 
those cases where the magis- 
trate making the original care 
order stated specifically that 
the case shoukl be referred 
back before the child could be 
returned home. 

The MPs came away from 
the meeting in more optimis- 


tic mood because they foil that 
Mr Fowler had appreciated 
the political difficulties for the 
Government in opposing such 
a Bill. It was prompted by tbe 
Jasmine Beckford death and 
the MPs have argued that the 
Government will face criti- 
cism if similar cases occur in 
future. 

Mr Walters also made a 
renewed plea for support to 
Lord H aflsham of St Maryle- 
bone. Lord Chancellor, last 
week. He is not opposing the 
involvement of courts but he 
has made clear to Mr Walters 
that his own department does 
not have the money, £1 mil- 
lion, to pay for the Bill's 
provisions. 

Mr Walters said last night 
that legislation on family 
courts was a long way off and 
the Government had given no 
commitment as to when its 
own legislation on child care 
matters would be introduced.

Exciting end 
to regional 
contest 

By John Grant 
Crossword Editor 

The Birmingham Regional 
Final of the Collins 
Dictionaries/ 77'mes Cross- 
word Championship at the 
Grand Hotel yesterday had a 
nail-biting finish. Dr Peter 
Mayo, who is 42. and lectures 
in Russian and Slavonic Stud- 
ies at Sheffield University, 
tied with Mr D E Morris, who 
is 57 and a meteorological 
officer from Bury St Ed- 
munds. Both have completed 
the four puzzles in an average 
of 12 minutes each. 

In a fifth tie-breaker puzzle, 
Morris finished first, in 12 
minutes, but was found to 
have an incorrect answer. 
Mayo took another four min- 
utes, had an all-correct solu- 
tion, and was, therefore, the 
winner. 

In third place was Wilfrid 
Miron, a retired solicitor from 
Halam. Nottinghamshire, 
who is 73. Like Dr Mayo he 
has been a frequent national 
finalist He took an average of 
14 minutes per puzzle. All 
three go forward to the nation- 
al finals in London in

belonged to plentiful species. 
Even tbe tiger be killed 40 
years ago was in a restricted 
area, overpopulated by tigers.

London and the South-east 
need substantially more 
houses than are planned in tbe 
next 15 years, the inquiry into 
the proposed Tiliingham Hail 
country town development, in 
Essex, is to be told this week. 

In tbe sixth week of the 
inquiry, the argument will 
centre on whether there was 
need for a scheme on the scale 
of Tiliingham Hall, planned 
by Consortium Developments 
to contain some 5,000 homes. 

Consortium Developments, 
a group of the largest building 
companies, has earmarked 
sites for five new towns in the 
South-east. 

Government policy to 
main tain the Green Belt and 
provide land for housebuild- 
ing. conflict in the inquiry. 
Consortium Developments is 
annealing against the rejection 


of the scheme by Essex Coun- 
ty Council and Thurrock local 
authority. 

The proposal's consultants, 
Conran Roche, headed by Sir 
Terence Conran, claimed that 
the minimum estimate of 
housing requirements for the 
South-east between 1981 and 
2001 was well in excess of 
those recognized by the Great- 
er London Council and other 
planning authorities. 

Mr Lee Shostak, of Conran 
Roche, believed that tbe mini- 
mum increase in the region's 
ho using stock requirements 


.-. 4 H i Mi 


760.000 homes, compared 
with 638,000 estimated by 
South-east Regional Planning 
Conference, leaving a shortfall 
of at least 122,000 homes. 

Mr Shostak, who is due to 
give evidence to the inquiry 
tomorrow, argues that mere 
would be housing shortages in 
north-east London by 1991. 

New country towns such as 
Tiliingham Hall would help 
ease local requirements ana 
create opportunities for mi- 
gration m areas of restraint 
within the South-east, he 
claims. 

In his evidence, Mr Shostak 
will list “exceptional" factors 
justifying a search for addi- 
tional housing land in south 
Essex, including curbs on 
development and a likely 
migration which will leave 
south and west Essex with 
10,000 fewer households by 
the end of lhe decade. 

If the private sector is to 
play the leading role, in in- 
creasing housing land, it could 
do so rally in locations where 
development risks were ac- 
ceptable. The inquiry is ex- 
pected to be completed by 
May 9.

What brick? What branch? 
What pole? What plank? 

Things you shudder to think 
about are comfortably absorbed 


by the remarkable suspension 
of the Citroen BX. 

What subsidence? What 
uneven road surface? 

Cobbled streets, corrugated 
farm tracks, even newly laid 
stretches of motorway. The BX 
takes them all in its stride. 

What load? What luggage? 

The suspension adjusts itself 
automatically to different loads. 
So the car handles exactly the 
same whether you’re on your 
own or off on the family holiday. 

$ What wind? 

■ Because the suspension is 
jt, self- levelling, it holds the BX 
at the correct and constant aero- 
dynamic angle, whatever the 
load. What we achieved in the 
wind tunnel, you’ll achieve in 
the wind. 

What sleeping policeman? 

Sorry officer; didn’t notice

By Genuine Norman 
Sate Room Correspondent 

Picture takers come in all 
shapes and sizes, and the 
latest to have Iris red of 
anonymity ripped away is Mr 
Robert Moore, of Bristol a 
cheerful 41-year-old who 
paints nineteenth-century 
shipping scenes for a living. 

A view of shipping off 
Macao which he put together 
by combining a boat scene by 
Joseph Walter (17834856) 
with a view of foe Macao coast 
attributed to William Daniefl 
(1769-1837) and the signature 
of John Wilfiam Hill (1812- 
1879), an obscure American 
mteredmaiat, was auctioned 
as a genuine HilL 
It was sold by Aldridge’s, of 
Bath, in 1984 for £K^00.“We 
had no doubts about it We 
even sent a photograph to the 
Peabody Museum In 
America,” a spokesman for 
the auction room said. 

The .auctioneers bad been 


estimating about £3,000 before 
the sale, bot Mr Rod Hey 
Oraell, who runs die Omeil 
Gallery, Duke Street in 
London's St James's, and who 
spe cializes in marine paint- 
ings, thought he was on to an 
American rarity when he made 
the final bid. 

He took the painting back to 
London and sent it to be 
relined. “My refiner pointed 
out that it wasn’t period, so I 
took it to my solid tor,” Mr 
Omeil said. The solicitor ad- 
vised getting in touch with the 
police. 

Mr Omeil pointed out that 
he does not know Hill's work 
well. Had tbe picture been 
genuine, this would probably 
have been the first time an 
example had turned up in an 
F.nglkh sale. Mr Omeil has 
claimed his money back from 
Aldridge's, but solicitors rep- 
resemfng tbe- two firms -are 
still arguing. 

Mr Moore and the West 


Country dealer who pm the 
picture into tbe auction have 
recently been questioned by 
police investigating the man- 
ner in which this and other 
pastiches by Mr Moore have 
been marketed. Mr Moore 
admits to having painted nn- 
merous pastiefaes, bat says he 
has always openly sold them 
as such. 

“I used to drink a bottle of 
vodka a day from Friday 
through Sunday,” Mr Moore 
said.” And Td sell anything to 
tbe dealers who came bad; to 
my place. But I don't remem- 
ber too well what 1 sold to 
who." 

Mr Moore paints marine 
pictures in nineteenth-century 
style which he signs with his 
own name and sells through 
the David Cross Gallery in 
Bristol and various others in 
Britain and America. He ex- 
hibits regularly with the Royal 
Society of Marine Artists. 

His wateicotoars start at 


about £120 and his oiis go up 
to about £800. He also paints 
pastiches like the so-called 
Hill which be sells to anyone 
who wants one. 

He will nse a toned varnish, 
generally from an ordinary 
spray can, to darken a picture. 
To obtain craquelure, - a 
network of fine cracks in 
varnish characteristic of an old 
painting - he warms glue size

Sales of garden 
seeds booming 

By John Young, Agriculture Correspondent 


The cold, wet spring has 
failed to dampen the British 
enthusiasm for gardening and 
sales of seeds of every kind are 
booming. 

April is the peak buying 
period and the United King- 
dom Agricultural Supply 
Trade Association, which rep- 
resents the main suppliers, is 
confident that this year’s sales 
wifi set another record. 

Last year gardening devo- 
tees bought more than 84 
million packets of seeds, 
worth some £34,600,000, an 
increase of about 9 per cent on 
1984. Sales were divided be- 
tween flowers (40,600.000 
packets) and vegetables (44 


million packets): of the latter 
some eight million were peas 
and beans. 

The market leaders are Sut- 
tons. who last year took over 
the Horticultural and Botani- 
cal Association containing 
such familiar names as Carters 
and Cuthberts. Other large 
suppliers are Charles Sharp 
and HursL Gunson, Cooper. 
Taber (both now pari of ihe 
Bookers group); Sinclair Hor- 
ticultural and Leisure; Kings; 
W. W. Johnson and Fisons. 
who entered the market by 
acquiring Bees and Webb. 

Much of the growth is 
attributed to the boom in 
garden centres

Money and the National Trust: 1 


for small 
businesses 


By Richard Evans 
Lobby Reporter 

A pilot scheme to simpJjjV 
the quagmire of employment 
and health and safety legisla- 
tion facing small businessmen 

will be launched by the Gov- 
ernment this week. 

h is the latest mow by Mr 
David Trippier. minister with 
responsibility for small firms, 
to cut red tape and to encour- 
age employers to take on more 
workers. 

The North-west 'and 
Thames Valley are the areas 
where information packs will 
be sent to local enterprise 
agencies. Thev wilt contain a 
leaflet on health and safety 
and a noliccboard kit lor 
companies setting out in sim- 
ple form the legal obligations 

of employers and responsibil- 
ities of employees, and a 
sample employment form. 

Mr Trippicr's initiative 
came after he discovered the 
vast number of leaflets, some 
of them practically unintelligi- 
ble. which have been sent to 
companies by Whitehall. 

~Tbc reason we are doing 
this, apart from trying to help 
the small businessman, is that 
wc believe he is unlikely to 
increase his workforce because 
he has a perception, rightly or 
wrongly, that he is constrained 
from doing so by government 
bureaucracv." the minister 
s 3 id. V.. Trippier is having 
talks with the Health and 
Safctv Executive in an aticmpt 
to reduce the "0 leaflets which 
are sent to employers.

Transkei roads 
are closed as 


blast kills two 


. Umtata (Reuter) - Eight 
people died in a weekend of 
South African violence and a 
row erupted over the funeral 
of an exiled nationalist and 
former king. 

A black boy aged 12 and a ' 
white man died in a blast at a 
| holiday hotel in Transkei trib- 
al homeland, south of Dur- 
ban. Six other blacks were 
killed in unrelated violence 
elsewhere. A baby was burnt 
to death in an arson attack on. 
the home of a Mack coun- 
cillor. 

Transkei was also the scene 
of the funeral of Sabata 
DaJindjebo, former king of the 
Tembu clan of the Xhosa tribe 
4fend a nephew of the jailed 
black nationalist leader, Mr 
Nelson Mandela. 

Entry roads to Transkei, 
one of 1 0 homelands set up for 
blacks under apartheid, were 
sealed off amid expectations 
that hundreds of ami-apart- 
heid activists would attend. 

After being removed from 
office in 1980 by his arch- 
rival. former Transkei Presi- 
dent Kaiser Matanzima, the 
king joined the banned Afri- 
can National Congress (ANC). 

The king’s family yesterday 
won a court order instructing 
police and a funeral parlour to 
hand the body over to them by 
% 


the afternoon. But they said 
that the body was from 
the funeral parlour and buried 
in a non-royal . cemetery with- 
out their permission. 

Reporters who witnessed 
the burial said they were then 
ordered away by security po- 
lice, and a British correspon- 
dent had his notebook con- 
fiscated. 

No members of the family 
were present as the coffin was 
lowered into the ground. Law- 
yers for the ex-king’s family 
said they had wanted the body 
flown back for burial m the 
Zambian capital of Lusaka,, 
where he had lived m exile 
from 1980. 

Meanwhile, in KwaZulu, 
home of South Africa’s six 
million Zulus, King Goodwill 
Zwelirhim accused the na- 
tion’s biggest union federation 
of advocating suffering for 
blacks by calling for anti- 
Pretoria sanctions. 

He said in a rare political 
statement that the Congress of 
South African Trade Unions 
(Cosatn) was making wild 
suggestions that would destroy 
the economy. 

Cosaiu, comprising 34 uni- 
ons with about 500,000 mem- 
bers, is the biggest labour 
federation in South African 
history. . . 


Israel Cabinet bows to 
public on summer time 

From David Bernstein, Jerusalem 


The Israeli Cabinet yester- 
day recommended putting 
clocks forward by one hour on 
May 17. reacting to a growing 
public rebellion against the 
decision of the Interior Minis- 
ter earlier this month not to 
implement summer lime for 
the next two years. 

Yesterday’s Cabinet vote is 
not legally binding on the 
Interior Minister, Rabbi Yit- 
shak Peretz of the ultra- 
'Veligious Torah Guardians. 
(Shas) Party, who was holding 
consultations on responding 
to the decision. He ■ will, 
however, find it politically 
difficult not to carry out the 
recommendations. - 
Rabbi Peretz has rejected 
claims that summer' time led 


to substantial energy savings 
and fewer road deaths, sup- 
porting the view of some 
religious circles that putting 
the clock forward interfered 
with their early-morning de- 
votions and could lead to 
desecration of the Sabbath. 

But as more factories, and 
even some towns, unilaterally 
introduced unofficial daylight 
saving time in the past two 
weeks, public pressure to re- 
verse the earlier derision be- 
came irresistible. 

Political observers here felt 
that the affair may have 
damaged relations between 
Shas and the labour Party, 
whose' ministers were over- 
whelmingly in favour of intro- 
ducing summer time 




Moscow turns on 
secret slanderers 


KAS.iN 


Moscow f API - Soviet 
courts ha'-e been ordered to 
lake criminal 3ciion againsi 
citizens who defame others in 
anonymous letters. 

After a three-day meeting ot 
the Soviet Supreme Coun Iasi 
«eek. the government news- 
paper Ir.csnu reported ai the 
weekend that the court had 
ordered a number of s'.eps to 
protect ihe rights of citizens, 

A..*r.ong them was a remind- 
er lo lower courts lhai "the law 
envisions strict responsibility 
for slander. Having estab- 
lished that a statement or 
anonymous letter was passed 
around for slanderous pur- 
poses. the court must institute 
a criminal procedure against 
those responsible". 

The reminder followed a 
Politburo order last summer 
and numerous articles in the 


state-run media over the past 
12 months denouncing the 
practice of writing anonymous 
letters to defame work col- 
leagues or neighbours. 

However, the court's order 
io lower courts to investigate 
cases of slander in anonymous 
letters did not appear in a 
report of the meeting pub- 
lished in yesterday’s edition ot 
the Communist Party daily 
Prjvih. 

There was no explanation 
for the omission. 

Neither newspaper suggest- 
ed that the new laws have been 
mandated to punish anony- 
mous letter writers or others 
deemed to violate individual 
rights. 

Existing Soviet law pro- 
vides for up to five years' jail 
for those convicted of severe 
defamation or slander.

Farm concessions sought 


Mr Bob Hawke, the Austra-

day have lengthy talks with 
Mrs Thatcher, during which 
be is expected to press her to 
use her influence to secure 
concessions from the . Europe- 
an Community to assist Aus-

Mr Hawke is in the middle

Washington on Saturday. To- 
morrow he goes to Brussels to

having an audience with the 
Queen at Windsor Castle. 

Australia feels that some 
sections of its farming com- 
munity. are going through a 
financial crisis, and at least 
some of the responsibility for 
this is laid on the European 
Community and the common 


agricultural policy. 

Mr Hawke is likely to seek 
Mrs Thatcher's assistance in 
ensuring that agriculture re- 
ceives due attention at the 
economic summit in Tokyo 
next month, and in London

formulas condemning West- 
ern attitudes to almost every- 
thing else. 

In spile of an all-night 
session to iron out differences 
on a number of topics, the 
ministers eventually simply 
called on India as chairman to 
appeal for peace in the Gulf. 

Even this provoked the 
Iranian delegation to walk out. 
saving that the appeal equated 
Iran and Iraq, and did not 
condemn Iraq for having 
started the war or for using 
chemical weapons. 

The Iranian Foreign Minis- 
ter. Mr Ali Akbar VetaytL said 
later that Iran would continue 
as an active member of the 
non-aligned movement, but 
he gave a warning that the 
organization's unity was 
threatened by its policy of 
taking decisions by consensus. 

The United States attack on

terrorism had figured in a

Vandenberg Air Force Base, Cali- 
fornia (NYT) - The loss of a Titan 
rocket mid its secret military payload 
here on Friday appears to bea serious 
blow to the national security interests 
of the United States, according to 
aerospace experts outside the Gov- 
ernment. 

At worst the experts said, the loss 
of an advanced spy satellite, which is 
believed to have been carried by the 
Titan, will make the negotiating of 
amts control treaties with the Soviet 
Union more difficult 

Photographs from such satellites 
are used to count missiles, to observe 
the Soviet military, and to monitor 
compliance with arms control treaties. 

Although Air Force officials will 


say only that the destroyed payload 
was secret aerospace experts ontside 
the government believe it was a KH11 
photographic reconnaissance satellite 
meant to have been launched into 
polar orbit 

The $65 million Titan 34D and its 
secret payload exploded in flames 
seconds after lift-off. 

The US now has only one KH 11 
satellite in orbit the exp e r ts said. 
Another KH1I satellite — they nsnal- 
ly operate in pairs — was lost in 
August when another Titan rocket 
exploded after lift-off here. 

“It’s a very serious situation,” said 
Mr James Bamford, author of The 
Puzzle Palace, a study iff the National 
Security Agency and the nation's 


system of spy satellites. “The impli- 
cations of this whole explosion are 
very serious. The shuttle might be out 
for several years and, if there's 
trouble as well with the Titans, then 
expendable rockets might also be out, 
which means that America's spy 
satellite fleet is basically grounded.” 

Other aerospace experts agreed, 
adding that the Titan explosion would 
make it more difficult fin- the US to 
sign treaties with the Soviet Union. 

The military spy satellites are far 
more advanced than civilian satellites, 
which cannot approach the photo- 
graphic precision needed for mflitary 
purposes. 

Aerospace experts said that the 
loss of the secret payload did net 


Biff iH the US was vulnerable to 
surprise attack. In addition to the 
single orbiting KH2I, the VS had a 
host of other satellites to monitor the

not been ruled out as a possible canse 
of the explosion. General Jack Wat-

gic Airspace Division, said yesterday 
(AFP reports).

Canada's hopes of a free 
trade zone with the United 
States may be about to flicker 
and die. The Senate finance 
committee in Washington 
votes tomorrow on whether to 
give President Reagan the go- 
ahead to negotiate a bilateral 
trade deal with Canada, and 
advance indications are that it 
will not do so. 

That would doom — possi- 
bly for good — the grand 
design of Mr Reagan and Mr 
Brian Mulroney. the Canadi- 
an Prime Minister, to elimi- 
nate remaining barriers to 
trade between the two neigh- 
bours. Last-minute efforts 
were under way in Washing- 
ton to salvage the plan, even 
as Mr Mulroney insisted in 


Ottawa that his Government 
would accept no “precon- 
ditions”. 

Canada-US trade now runs 
at about SCanl60 billion 
(about £76 billion) a year. 

Most of h is already free, or 
subject to negligible rates of 
duly. But Mr Reagan and Mr 
Mulroney believe that bilater- 
al commerce can be expanded 
still further, with economic 
benefit to both sides, through 
a specially negotiated deaL 

One of Canada's principal 
motives is to exclude itself 
from the effects of various 
non-tariff barriers being intro- 
duced or threatened by a US 
Congress which is increasingly 
protectionist-minded. 

Until very recently, both 


governments had assumed 
that the US Adminis tration 
would have no trouble in 
obtaining the necessary con- 
gressional authority to open 
negotiations. 

A few days ago, however, 12 
of the Senate committee's 20 
members sent a letter to Mr 
Reagan saying that they could 
not support his request for a 
“fast-track” launching of the 

talks. 

This followed an April 11 
meeting of the committee at 
which senators loosed a bar- 
rage of criticism at Canada 
over its heavy penetration of 
the US market. Canada has a 
SCan20 billion US trade sur- 
plus with the US, second only

Computer

sex woes 

Pittsburgh (API - People 
who are too shy to tell a 
psychoanalyst about their sex- 
ual problems have an elec- 
ironic alternative. Now they 
can talk to a computer instead. 

A computer programme de- 
veloped by researchers at Car- 
negie-Mellon University here 
will listen to sexual woes, 
identify the source of the 
problem, and even suggest 
treatment. 

“Research shows people are 
more likely to talk about 
embarrassing things to a com- 
puter than to a person," said 
Dr David Servan-Schreiber, 
aged 25, son of M Jean- 
Jacques Servan-Schreiber, the 
author and economist. 

The programme, Sexpert, is 
designed for use over several 
sessions by a couple dissatis- 
fied with their sex lives. A- 
playwright created the

it interactive and sensitive".

Police to 
launch 
big attack 
on Triads 

From David Bonavia 
Hong Kong 

Hong Kong police are pre- 
paring for a big drive against 
the Triads, clandestine Chi- 
nese criminal societies, whose 
activities seem to be again on 
the increase. 

Mr Ray Anning. the Com- 
missioner of Police, has ac- 
knowledged a tendency in 
recent years to write off the 
Triads, and to regard them as 
little more than gangs of petty- 
criminals. Now an official 
report has clarified the extent 
of Triad activity, and a severe 
crackdown is likely to be the 
result. 

However, some of the_ pro- 
posed measures may infringe 
civil liberties: for instance. 

former Triad members, on 
Their release from prison will 
be banned from frequenting 
establishments where crimi- 
nals congregate, and even 
from carrying electronic pag- 
ing devices - a useful aid to 
organized criminal activity. 

Most of the Triads are pro- 
Taiwan. if they have any 
political inclinations, and the 
British authorities might be 
regarded as negligent if the 
secret societies, with their 
elaborate rituals and vows ot 
secrecv. were still active when 
China’ regains sovereignty 
over Hong Kong in 1 997. 

The Triads - many of 
whose members are illegal 
immigrants from China - 
thrive mainly on drugs, sex 
and gambling, as well as 
carry ing out bloody vendeiias 
against each other. They were 
suppressed in the late 1950s 
but are now active again. 


EEC strikes a sour note in war of the sexes 


From Richard Owen, Brussels 


The European Commission, 
burdened with worries about 
the budget crisis, the trade war 
with the United States and the 
future of European agrteul- 
jtore, has turned its attention to 
ithe pressing question of how 
many women in history have 
written jazz musk, played the 
oboe or sung as troubadours. 

A 92-page report on Women 
and Music issued by the 
Commission uses the re- 
sources of the EEC to tackle 
the favourite challenge of ev- 
ery saloon bar male chauvin- 
ist Why are there no great 
women musicians? 

It concludes that women 
have through the centuries 
“managed to express them- 


selves despite constraints im- 
posed on them by society ", but 
that men have conspired to 
play down or ignore the role of 
women composers and mus- 
icians. 

In the ancient world, the 
report says, there were not 
enough women oboists, harp- 
ists and tambourine players to 
meet demand, so the services 
of these hetairai were highly 
prized. 

In the Middle Ages, unfor- 
tunately, there were only 20 
women troubadours, all from 
Provence. In the sixteenth and 
seventeenth centimes women, 
as usual, were seen as decora- 
tive. 

Yet despite "male censor- 


ship in the music world" 
women's “musical liberation" 
lay in solo instruments like the 
harpsichord and violin. Eliz- 
abeth 1*5 favourite instrument, 
after alL was the virginal, 
“named after the young girls 
who played it". 

Later on, in the eighteenth 
century, women took to the 
pianoforte to find liberation 
from the duties of wife and 
mother. 

In the last century and oar 
own time, the report says, 
women have often had to hide 
behind male pseudonyms — or 
their hnsbands — to be accept- 
ed. But women are now in- 
creasingly prominent in the 
music world, and even the 


word "jazz" may have been 
coined by a woman, according 
to Clarence Williams, who 
recalls that a woman said to 
him with feeling: “Oh jazz me. 
baby!" when he was in mid- 
stomp. 

The report ends with a list ot 
distinguished European wom- 
en musicians and composers. 
It regrets the continuing lack 
of women conductors however, 
noting that male musicians are 
reluctant to be conducted by a 
woman. 

“Men do not readily accept 
the authority of a woman," the 
report observes. “How often 
does one see a squadron of 
police led by a woman?"

collaborators from the ha ^ 
line military regime the two 
led after the violent military 
takeover in Bolivia in July 
1980. are being tried by the 
Supreme Court in the moun- 
tain capital of Sucre. Thej are 
charged with sedition, political 
assassination and genocide, 
misuse of public funds, and 
other crimes. 

But what is being called the 
“trial of the century" here 
may, because of delays and 
division among the court jus- 
tices on trial procedure, last up 
to two vears before a verdict is 
reached, according to judicial 
experts. . 

General Garcia Meza, who 
together with Colonel Arce 
Gomez went into hiding at the 
end of 1982 when the country 
returned to civilian rule, unex- 
pectedly appeared before the 
court earlier this month in 
defence of his coup and the 
regime he led. 

The court is now in such 
disarm v — two members have 
died recently, and prosecution 
and defence lawyers are de- 
manding that five of the 
justices excuse themselves 
from the proceedings for vari- 
ous reasons, ranging from 
personal connections to the 
former regime to claims of 
communist sympathizing — 
that it is uncertain when the 
next session will be held. It is 
also uncertain whether Colo- 
nel Arce Gdraez will appear. 

La Paz offers

Belfast man suspected of cash deliveries 



By A Stiff Reporter 

The conflict with Libya has 
ted security forces a several 
European countries to step up 
their hunt for a Belfest man 
they believe las been passing 
on Libyan funds and weapon- 
ry to the Ira for at test four 
years.- 

'British and Irish police 
declined to comment yester- 
day. The suspect is ag-d 35 
and is known to have had 
close ties with the Provisional 
IRA since it was formed in 

197a 

Early in his clandestine 
career, the man escaped from 
Maze prison where he had 


arms link 


been serving a nine-year sen- 
tence for explosives offences. 
He was eventually recaptured, 
hut was released in 1978. 

Since then be has been 
detained by police in France 
and Canada while travelling 
with false documents, but he 
has now gone into hiding, 
possibly in The Netherlands. 
The source said he is suspect- 
ed of delivering hundreds of 


tenced to three years impris- 
onment in his absence on gun- 
running charges. Belgian po- 
lice said one of his associates 
in the alleged 1983 arms deal 
was a man who is presently 
serving a life sentence In 
Britain in connection with the 
Harrods bomb attack in De- 
cember 1983 that killed six 
people.

Britain to push for tougher action 

EEC meets to find solution 
and maintain US alliance 


Britain today joins its Euro- 
pean partners for the third 
time in a week in a bid to find 
a peaceful solution to the 
Libyan crisis. 

Today Sir Geoffrey Howe, 
the Foreign Secretary, will 
insist on a number of tough 
anti-Libyan sanctions, includ- 
ing the complete closure of all 
Libyan People’s Bureaux in 
Europe, when he meets other 
EEC foreign ministers in Lux- 
embourg to review the impact 
of measures adopted at emer- 
gency meetings in The Hague 
and Paris last week. ■ - - 

But even with transatlantic 
mistrust and misunderstand- 
ing running strong, the EEC is 
reluctant to impose the kind of 
economic and trade sanctions 
the Americans see as the 
minimum condition for an 
agreed Western alternative to 
military action. 

Today’s meeting comes at a 
time when EEC states appear 
to be moving away from their 
initial shock and dismay over 
the American bombing of 
and towards a greater 
ding of American

motives and frustrations. The 
emphasis among European 
officials is now on Colonel 
Gadaffi’s culpability m sup- 
porting, or ordering, terrorist 
attacks that have cost Europe- 
an as wed as American lives. 

The Europeans are anxious 
to avoid a damaging split in 
the Western alliance, with 
Washington writing off the 
allies as “appeasers." On the 
other hand, European officials 
are conscious that public omn- 
ioo in Europe — including 
Britain — is against the Ameri- 
can actios. 

EEC diplomats said Sir 
Geoffrey wiD come under 
today to ensure that 
bases are not used in 
fixture American operations. 

Greece, which has been the 
most reluctant of the Twelve 
to condemn Libya, is expected 
to propose that an EEC con- 
tact group go to Tripoli to try 
to intercede between Libya 
and tibeUSL 

Three months ago EEC 
foreign ministers issued a 
vague condemnation of ter- 


rorism without mentioning 
Libya, by name. Since it fol- 
lowed the Rome and Vienna 
airport bombings, this caution 
aroused American scorn and 
sowed doubts in Washington 
that the Europeans could be 
counted on for helpu But the 
January meeting did set up an 
EEC working group on terror- 
ism, which today will report to 
the foreign ministers and will 
recommend tougher anti-Lib- 
yan measures. 

Britain warns these new 
moves to follow the British 
experience in dealing with 
Libya over the past two years. 
Sir Geoffrey, who has given 
his colleagues detailed evi- 
dence of Libyan links with the 
IRA, wants the EEC as a 
whole to shut down the Liby- 
an People’s Bureaux, which be 
calls “command posts of 
terrorism". 

Such action, combined with 
severe visa restrictions and a 
ban on export credits and 
arms sales to Libya, would 
“restore Europe’s credibility" 
British officials believe. 


diers. Since then a number of 
IRA members are believed to 
have received training in guer- 
rilla warfare in Libya. 

Mr Tom King, the Secretary 
of Slate for Northern Ireland, 
reiterated government .charges 
at the weekend that Libya has 
been supporting the IRA for 
several years. 

“When Gadaffi's head of 
the secret service boasts ‘we 
sustain the IRA', that's no idle 
claim. His oil money, his 
Army, his training camps, all 
hare played their pan," he 
said in a statement Mr King 
said the total sum provided to 
the IRA was not known,

Eg> pt has told European 
countries it will help evacuate 
any of their nationals who 
want to leave Libya by land, 
diplomats and Eg>ptian offi- 
cials said in Cairo yesterday. 

A special flight to Frankfurt 
b> a West German Lufthansa 
DC10 at the weekend brought 
276 people out of Libya, some 
of the first foreigners to leave 
the country since Tuesday’s 
US air raid. 

The Egyptian diplomats 
said that help with evacuation, 
sought amid uncertainty fol- 
lowing the air raids, would not 
be needed so long as commer- 
cial or charter flights were 
operating from Tripoli. 

Sweden. Switzerland and 
Italy were among countries 
which held exploratory talks 
about opening the border, 
closed since a war between 
Egypt and Libya in l<*77, in 
case overland evacuation was 
required, they said.

'■ F^WttftqbertFMc 
SiffiBM^Lfoya; 

Just next to the Stdi Bilal 
Naval Academy is a high 
concrete wall surmounted by a 
concertina of double barbed 
wire. The wall snakes untidily, 
up from the seashore, adjacent 
to a bumpy road, and comes 
to an end beside a gateway 
where fiveyotnig men in jeans 
and combat jackets hold auto- 
matic rifles. 

In one corner of the inner 
compound, a man-watches the 
scene through binoculars. Be- 
hind him, an old cement 
house has been devastated by 
an explosion. The tall building 
beside H has had a massive 
hole punched in its roof The 
German teacher at the naval 
academy next door says it was

He has never entered the 
complex because; he says, it is 
a "restricted area”. But it's not 
to bombs: here is one military 
target the Americans did hit 
last week. 

Not that we were supposed 
to realize that yesterday. Liby- 
an Government officials had 
taken correspondents to see 
the damage to the adjoining 
naval academy. The 200ft- 
long accommodation block, 
officers' club, bathrooms, 
gymnasium, swimming pool, 
and part of the medical centre 
had been smashed to pieces in 
the American air attack — a 
raid which started fires so 
intense that walls and road- 
ways had been twisted in the 
heat. 

Two naval cooks, allegedly 
preparing breakfast when the 
Americans came — at two m 
the morning — were killed 
there, according to a naval 
officer. The accommodation 
block had been empty be- 
cause, so the officers said, the

“Underwater diving

naval officer. “I have never

must- write the truth and 
repeat only the truth. That is 
my personal opinion, if you do 
not mind me telling you." We 
looked across at the wall with 
its barbed wire and we could 
see the man with binoculars. 
He was watching us. 

Officially, the' casualty toll 
at the academy was two dead 
and 15 wounded. No figures, 
of course, were given for the 
dead in the m Hilary installa-

as there was no anti-aircraft 
defence system at the base in 
the event of an air attack. 

We were invited to inspect 
the mins, some of which 
appeared to have been tom 
apart by internal explosions. 

We were urged to enter the 
naval academy's undamaged 
language laboratory where stu- 
dents practised English. 

In one classroom, we found 
Mr Hartwig Looft from Stutt- 
gart teaching science to a class 
of blue-uniformed cadets. 


The visit of a Libyan minis- 
ter to Athens over the weekend 
has caused the Greek Govern- 
ment acute embarrassment, 
but neither side has so far 
offered a convincing explana- 
tion of the purpose of the 
an usual trip. 

Mr Ahmet Shahati, Libya’s 
Deputy Foreign Minister, who 
flew in to a cordial red-carpet 
welcome here on Thursday, 
left for home on Saturday after 
being practically confined to 
his hold room under Greek 
police guard and then escorted 
to the airport by tire Greek 
Public Order Minister.

said that the Libyan, daring a

Protests 

60 held in 
UK rallies 
against US 

By Our Foreign Staff 

More than 60 people were 
arrested in Britain yesterday 
when mainly Muslim and left- 
wing demonstrators rallied 
throughout Europe in opposi- 
tion to the US raids on Libya. 

About 300 demonstrators 
marched to the US Embassy 
in Grosvenor Square in cen- 
tral London and were joined 
by 1,000 more from a Hands 
Off Libya demonstration. 

In Garistedt, near Bremen 
in West Germany, police used 
water cannon to disperse dem- 
onstrators blocking a US 
Army barracks. 

Thousands of West Ger- 
mans took pan on Saturday in 
anti-US demonstrations, with 
a claimed 40,000 inarching on 
the Embassy in Bonn. 

Shouting "Reagan ass- 
assin", several bandied dem- 
onstrators marched through 
Brussels yesterday. They car- 
ried pictures of Colonel 
Gadaffi, and denounced Mr 
Reagan and Mrs Thatcher as 
child murderers. 

Fifty-eight of those arrested 
in Britain were demonstrators 
at RAF St Mawean, near New- 
quay, Cornwall where the 
perimeter wire fence was cut. 

Six campaigners were ar- 
rested by Ministry of Defence 
police inside the base at 
Lakeuheath, Suffolk, after 
paint was sprayed. 


From Mario Modiano, Athens 

the Greek Prime Minister, 
had asked that the Enropean 
Community should establish 
contact with the two shies in 
the crisis to seek a peaceful 
solution, premising Tripoli's 
fall co-operation. 

Mr ShahatFs executive jet 
developed some technical fault 
30 mfmues after retting off for 
Tripoli and returned to Ath- 
ens. Evading Greek police 
surveillance, he addressed a 
hastily convened press confer- 
ence at 1 am to deny indig- 
nantly that he had ever asked 
for Mr Papandreon's or the 
Community's mediation. 

The press conference was 
then broken up by the police, 
who escorted Mr Shahati 
forcibly to his room, while 


outraged journalists scuffled 
with the police amid over- 
turned tables and firing glass. 
The Greek Government later 
said it had acted out of concern 
for the Libyan's safety. 

Mr Shahati told reporters 
as he left the hotel for the 
airport on Saturday that he 
was grateful to the Athens 
Government for having pro- 
tected his life so thoroughly. 
He said Libyan children in- 
jured during the VS air raids 
would be sent to Greek hospi- 
tals for treatment 

New Democracy, the con- 
servative main opposition par- 
ty, attacked the Government 
for “holding Greece up to 
ridicule" by breaking np the 
press conference. 


From Peter Nichols, Rome 


This week should see the 
introduction of sterner mea- 
sures by '.he Italians against 
the personnel of embassies 
representing countries here 
which shew sympathy and 
tolerance toward terrorism. 

Signor Betiino Craxi, Prime 
Minister, said on Saturday 
that he envisaged a reduction 
in the number of diplomats 
belonging to these countries, 
limitations on their move- 
ments and a more severe 
check before granting visas. 

“We must have guarantees 
that diplomatic activities do 
not conceal other activ- 
ities,''he said. 

He confirmed that he had 


advised the Americans against 
taking military action, but it 
was Colonel Gadaffi. he said, 
who set off the Gulf of Sirte 
clash with his irresponsible act 
of firing missiles at the Ameri- 
can Sixth Fleet. 

He added that there was no 
question of Italian weakness 
towards terrorism. 

Italy had no intention of 
making an attack or support- 
ing one against Libya. But 
when Libya launched two 
missiles last week against the 
Italian island of Lampedusa. 
Signor Craxi’s administration 
was forced to order the de- 
fence of national territory “at 
every point”

sages with Tripoli tannediate- 
Kr before and after the 
bombing of a West Berlin 
discotheque which killed two 
people, indnding an American 
serviceman, and injured 60 

more. The blast triggered the 
US attack od Libya. 

Western diplomats call die 
Bureau the bomb factory, or at 
least a bomb depot. The West 
Germans - who warned Soviet 
and East German officials 
about die Dkelihood of an 
assault on Americans on 
March 27, nine days before 

the discotheque was bombed — 

believed that the East Berlin 
mission may have also been 
linked with two other terrorist 
attacks- The Libyans deny 
everything. 

The key » the “bomb 
factory” thesis — which until 
the intercepted details are 
disclosed had to be _ taken 
largely on . trust — is tire 
peculiar status of Berlin. It is 


er to slip undetected from East 
to West. 

If the bombers had diplo- 
matic immunity, crossing the 
border was simply a matter of 
entering a large glass hall, not 
unlike a school eymnasunu, 
finked to the Friednchstrasse 
monteiple railway station, 
passing without luggage 
checks through a narrow chan- 
nel, flashing a passport and 
mounting the .train, the S~ 
Bate, on the far side. 

From that point one Is 
effectively in the West. Even 
without diplomatic immunity 
it is a straightforward matter 
to queue with the jostling East 
German pensioners as they 
prepare to cross the border to 
meet their relatives. 

West Berlin, then, is a top 
target; its targe American 
population exposed to oross- 
- border ffy-by-nights who can 
bring in plastic explosives or 
W gnus with Utile fern* of 
defection; certainly none of the 


risks that are associated with 
passing through airports. 

The Western. side is now 
tightening security as best it 
can. American soldiers and 
their dependants have been 
pot under midnight curfew. 

West German polk* now 
patrol the platforms of the S- 
Bate stations te the West and 
check the documents of the 
swarthy-tooklng travellers. An 
anti-American demonstration 
last Saturday drew a huge 
police deployment around the 
American Library in West 
Berlin. 

On the Eastern side of the 
dty, Mr Mikhail Gorbachov, 
the visiting Kremlin leader, 
was lucky to get by on a 
fraction of that security. The 
East Germans seemed to be as 
worried as the West about the 
possibility of the Libyans 
using their territory as a 
springboard for terrorism, but 
can do tittle.

SPECTRUM 



Poisoned by greed 


Police believe that a 
huge EEC fraud may 
h ave been behind the 
Italian wine scandal 
that has killed 2 1 and is 
set to cost a fortune 
in lost exports 

A plan to defraud the EEC may have 
been behind the Italian wine poison- 
ing <K*nda L which last week saw seven 
people charged with murder and fresh 
arrests. After a series of raids on 
distilleries and wine merchants in the 
Puglia region, police now believe that 
a conspiracy existed to provide grow- 
ers with an artificial excess of wine, for 
which they would be conpensated 
under EEC rules. 

They believe the plan was called off 
after a Puglian wine merchant de- 
nounced the existence of the racket 
last December to a meeting of local 
distillers. It was at this point that a 
group of unscrupulous businessmen 
and wine blenders allegedly decided to 
sell the methanol-polluted wine for 
human consumption. 

The investigators do not rule out the 
possibility that some compliant distill- 
ers may have collaborated in the 
conspiracy, and that large amounts of 
compensation may already have been 
paid. | 

The countrv's wine producers are 
still reeling from the shock of the 
scandal which has so far caused the 
deaths of at least 21 people and 
irreparably damaged the health of 
hundreds more. Vimners are polluting 
entire rivers in the wine-growing north 
with millions of litres of suspected 
cheap table wine. The River Tanaro, 
which runs through the vine-covered 
hills of Piedmont where Barbera, one 
of Italy's finest wines, is produced, 
flowed blood red for two days earlier 
this month. Last Friday the health 
authorities in Venice prohibited fish- 
ing in the nearby River Piave because 
tests showed that fish had absorbed 
dangerous quantities of methanol 
from the Veneto white wines. 


% MONEY AT RISK 


It is predicted that exports 
will drop by 75 per cent 


Fewer than a dozen people acquired 
and marketed 260 tonnes of methanol 
which fortified the alcoholic content of 
the equivalent of 30 million one-litre 
bottles of wine. The three most recent 
arrests are of wine merchants in the 
Treviso area, charged with possessing 
wine containing 20 per cent methanoL 
Previous levels have been no more 
than five per cent, already considered 
deadly and between 15 and 20 times 
the amount permitted under EEC 
regulations. .As news of the scandal 
spreads internationally, the prospects 
for Italy's wine industry dwindle. 
Experts are predicting a drop in export 
sales of up to 75 per cent over the next 
few years, causing overall losses of one 
billion lire (£435 million). 

Yet wine growers are finally begin- 
ning to admit that pan of the reason 
for the scandal is their passive 
acceptance of a series of malpractices. 

Piedmont, in the north eastern 
comer of Italy, in the shadow of the 
French Alps, is perhaps hit hardest by 
the scandal The gentle, rolling hills 
around Asti and Alba produce Italy's 
finest and most prestigious reds — 
.Asti Spumame. Barolo and Barbera. 

Since the scandal broke almost a 
month ago, the name Barbera has 
become irredeemably associated with 
the first three official victims of the 
tragedy, who had drunk bottles of 



Police check wine labels in a Rome supermarket 


cheap wine, labelled Barbera, bought 
at a Milan supermarket Ironically the 
bottlesalmos! certainly had no trace of 
real Barbera or Piedmont wine. 

“The feet is”, said Professor Ussglio 
Tomasset, director of the Italian 
Experimental Wine Research Institute 
in Asti and one of Italy's leading wine 
experts. “Piedmont sells more than 
twice the amount of wine it actually 
grows and produces.” He told and 
informal meeting of Barbera wine 
growers in a schoolroom in the tiny 
hill village of Roatto: **We all know 
perfectly well that many wine mer- 
chants and blenders put additives in 
their so-called wine, but we keep quiet 
about it and in so doing are helping to 
ruin the reputation of the genuine 
wine we work so hard to produce. ” 

The problem, he explained, is that 
there is no effective policing of the rule 
that no more than 15 per cent of wine 
from one region can be added to that 
of another. Permission to add up to 1 5 
per cent of “extra-territorial” wine is 
perfectly valid, and is practised by 
other wine-producing countries, such 
as France. 


Wine dealers have, however, consis- 
tently abused the 15 per cent rule, 
seeking to exploit such prestigious 
names as Barbera, Barolo. Valpoli cella 
and Soave by adding massive quanti- 
ties of southern Italian wines, which 
contain a high alcoholic content 

Often, the southern wines added to 
ihe northern table product consist 
mainly of water, sugar, and other 
additives. Sometimes no wine is 
added at alL But even sugar costs 
money, and the idea of using methanol 
to boost the alcohol level probably 
goes back to July 1984 when the excise 
tax on methanol was abolished. 
Suddenly there was an extremely 
cheap alternative to sugar or ordinary 
alcohol. 

The original intention of the metha- 
nol adulterators, according to the 
investigators working on the case, was 
probably to add only a small quantity, 
which would not kill, but which would 
at most marginally affect the eyesight 
or nervous system of the drinker. 

The Milan-based investigating mag- 
istrate in charge of the case. Dr Alberto 
Nobili. is convinced that he has 


arrested — , «, — . — , _ . 

methanol to four large wine dealers m 
Puglia, Emilia-Romagna and Pied- 
mont. 

The six arrested methanol dealers 
ordered the substance from legally 
registered distillers by clai mi ng to be 
authorized chemical companies. 
Judge Nobili has established that 
distribution started on Decamber 12 
and stopped on March 10 this year. 

At least one of the 14 men so for ar- 
rested. Giovanni Ciravegna from 
Narzole in Piedmont, already had a 
long bistory of wine adulteration. Last 
December the Piedmont wine anti- 
fraud squad asked the mayor of 
Narzole to suspend Ciravenga's busi- 
ness licence because of an adulteration 
case which they had just investigated. 
The mayor — himself a wine mer- 
chant. in a town with a population of 
3.500, 200 of whom run wine busi- 
nesses — did nothing. Last week 
charges against Ciravegna and his son 
Daniels were changed from man- 
slaughter to murder. 

The four main adulterators distrib- 
uted the poisoned wine to a second 
level of wine dealers who. though they 
may not have been aware of the nature 
of the poison in the wine, certainly 
knew from the extremely low cost that 
it was adulterated. These medium size 
firms then distributed the wine, often 
with their own labels, to supermarkets, 
exporters or other small dealers. 

The Italian government is now 
saying that everything is under con- 
trol and that though, some rogue 
bonks may still be on sale, the worst is 
over. 


LIVES AT RISK 


Only last week a boy, aged 
three, was in hospital 

There is little evidence of this 
confidence amongst ordinary Italians. 
In .Asti yesterday the owner of one of 
the town's finest restaurants com- 
plained that almost none of his 
customers were drinking his wines, 
which are amongst the best from the 
region and totally untainted. “Many of 
these people are old friends”, he said. 
“I feel personally insulted and of- 
fended by their lack of trust” 

The hardest hit are the respectable 
dealers. Giovanni Carnevali's family 
have been blending the best Barbera 
wines for almost 100 years. “This 
disaster has done a vast amount of 
damage to the reputation of wines, 
which are amongst the finest in 
Europe. This affair has shattered us. 
Inevitably one begins to think ‘what if 
somehow somebody sold me tainted 
wineT. Unfortunately wc have been 
forced to ask our diems — many of 
them old family friends — to write out 
certificates stating that their wine is 
untainted.” 

Despite government attempts to 
issue daily lists of suspected wine 
companies, some people appear un- 
aware of the danger. Last week in 
A versa, in southern Italy, a family of 
four, including a three-year-old boy. 
were in hospital after drinking wine 
adulterated with methanoL 

“What worries me most", said an 
analyst in Asti yesterday, “is the 
number of people who may have died 
of methanol poisoning without it ever 
having been properly diagnosed. The 
first three victims were only diagnosed 
as dying of methanol poisoning be- 
cause they died within the same few 
days at the same hospitaL It is now 
known that at least three other 
methanol victims were registered as 
dying for other reasons. And even 
more worrying: how many people 
have been permanently injured by the 
poison without realizing?”

HOW THE LAW MAKES IT EASY FOR THE POISONERS 


One hi every eight bottles of 
wine drunk in Britain comes 
from Italy, the biggest wine 
producer in the world. Italy 
produces more than a fifth of 
the world's wine, but two- 
thirdsof this is drunk at borne. 
Italians have the most prodi- 
gious consumption of table 
wine of any nation in the 
world, though nowadays they 
drink an annnal average of 
less than 90 litres per bead, 
where a decade ago the aver- 
age was 1 10 litres. It is stilL at 
120 bottles per head a year, 
about 10 times as much as the 
average Briton. 

Italy's attitude to wine has 
been described by Britain's 
leading authority, Hugh John- 
son, as “alarmingly casual”, 
and the country has been a 
notorious source of great wine 
scandals. The previous worst 
case involved 770,000 gallons 
of fake wine seized by the 
authorities in 1966. It had 
been made with a mixture of 
tap water, sugar, ox blood, 
pigeon droppings, chemicals 
and the sludge from banana 
boats. But despite some 30 
arrests, the case never came to 
court. When the trial was due 
It was found that the prime 
exhibit, the 770,000 gallons of 
wine weighing 3,125 tons, had 
completely disappeared. In its 
place die police found pure 
water, and the prosecution was 
abandoned. 

Methyl alcohol (methanol), 
the lethal additive at the centre 
of the present case, occurs 
naturally in wine in small 
amounts, and is easily detected 
in analysis. But the permissi- 
ble level varies from country to 
country, and Britain has never 
set one. Nor does wine law 
anywhere require the publica- 
tion of detailed analyses of 
whai is actually in wine offered 
for sale. 

EEC laws allow the follow- 
ing additives: potassium tar- 


Ox blood and pigeon 
droppings led to the 
last big wine scandal 


trate, potassium bicarbonate 
or chalk to deacklify sour 
grape juice in north European 
wines; tartaric acid or citric 
acid to improve Savour and 
longevity in Mediterranean 
wines; sugar to increase alco- 
holic strength in French wines, 
or concentrated grape most in 
Italian wines; and in wines of 
all countries sulphur as a 
preservative, cultured yeasts 
to control fermentation, and 
chemicals to feed the yeasts, to 
precipitate tartaric acid, to 
reduce the level of sulphides, 
or to produce fizz. The makers 
are also permitted to water 
wine to to dissolve solid 
additives. 

Permissible treatments in- 
clude applications of dried 
blood powder, sturgeon's air 


THE RULES 


Italy’s attitude is 
"alarmingly casual’ 

bladders, potass ram ferrocya- 
ntde, gelatine, casein, egg 
white, silicoH dioxide, benton- 
ite, kaolin, tunaan. or acacia 
gum to dear the wine: centri- 
fuging and filtration to dear 
and stabilize it: refrigeration 
to prevent the formation of 
cry stals; and pasteurization. 

The EEC also sets careful 
rules about the wording, order 
and type size of information on 
wine labels. For Italian wines 
the wine name, its category, 
the producer or bottler's name 
and place of bottling, the 
volume and proportion of alco- 
hol by volume are obligatory. 

Italian wine production is 


theoretically governed by the 
national and regional authori- 
ties in compliance with Euro- 
pean Economic Community 
policy. If exported, the wine 
and label are also supposed to 
meet the standards set by the 
importing nation. The legal 
details are increasingly com- 
plicated, and producers com- 
plain that bureaucracy has 
made hbeffing burdensome. 

Italy has a four-fere! system 
of classifying wine, bat only 
one category, applying to bare- 
ly a tenth of production, is in 
fell effect The detwmmazhne 
di origuut controData (DOC) is 
an approximate equivalent of 
France's Appellations Coat- 
roUes, but DOCs (determined 
by local producers) have been 
granted to many areas produc- 
ing poor wines of no more than 
local interest By contrast 
many of Italy's finest wines 
can only be called rino da 
tarola, a description which 
might equally apply to the 
worse than mediocre. But then 
in France Grand Crn can mean 
anything or nothing; and 
“British Wine” is arguably 
neither British nor wine, being 
made from imported g rape 
concentrate. 

The highest Italian wine 
category, detwmioazioae dx 
origtoe eontroUata e guraatita, 
bas only just come Into opera- 
tion and is barely effective. 
DOC and DOCG wines, under 
Common Market rales, are 
supposed to pass chemical and 
taste analysis before being 
sold. Nonetheless some of the 
Italian wine contaminated 
with methanol was on sale, 
fraudulently, as DOC Barbera 
and Barolo, and detected not 
by the authorities but by an 
observant medical practitioner 
who connected the wine with 
his patient's death.

Why animal welfare calls 
for some human rights 



A friend indeed: Dr Broom believes that cows care, too 

Donald Broom is 


A fter 19 years as a 
research zoologist. Dr 
Donald Broom firmly 
believes that the behaviour of 
pnimpk is much more closely 
linked to that of humans than 
most of us realize — or 
possibly care to recognize. 

Cows, for example, popu- 
larly believed to be stoicly 
indifferent to their comrades, 
have been found by Broom to 
form clear-cut and long-last- 
ing relationships with other 
members of the herd, both on 
a friendly and antagonistic 
level. 

And isolated fin* 

long periods win exhibit the 
same sterotyped behaviour 
patterns as people m solitary 
confinement Broom intends 
to utilize much of the psycho- 
logical work done on human 
behaviour when he takes up 
his appointment in Septem- 
ber as the world's first profes- 
sor of animal welfare, based 
at Cambridge University. 

It is a hot seat in an area of 
high controversy and one 
which is likely, in the long 
run, to affect us afl. Caught 
between the conflicting lob- 
bies of the formers, politi- 
cians, anim al rights activists 
and members of the public, 
Broom intends to work pure- 
ly to produce scientific evi- 
dence aimed at improving 
the lot of animals. 

Possible indicators include 
measures of behaviour, 
physiology, health and sus- 
ceptibility to disease, rates of 
growth and reproductive effi- 
ciency. It is an area in which 
Broom is already working in 
his capacity as reader in pure 
and applied zoology at Read- 
ing University. At tire mo- 
ment his research is based 
mainly on form animals but 
now he will extend his inter- 
est to include zoo and labora- 
tory animals as well as wild 
animals and pets. 

He has been fascinated by 
animals ever since he was a 
child, bird-watching as a 


to become the 
world’s first 
professor of 
animal welfare 

hobby and spending his 
school holidays on a mend's 
form in Cornwall- He read 
natural sciences at Cam- 
bridge and then spent three 
years researching his doctor- 
ate in gniroal behaviour be- 
fore joining Reading 
University. 

His new appointment, 
funded by the Animal Wel- 
fare Foundation, an offshoot 
of the British Veterinary As- 
sociation. will demand a 
combination of academic 
enterprize and practical 
experience. 

Many of his findings are 
likely to prove unpopular — 
especially among the forming 
communities Ever since in- 
tensive forming methods 
were widely introduced into 
Britain in the 1950s, farmers^ 
profits have depended upon 
mass production, frequently 
at the expense of the animals 
involved. 

“If you rear animals in a 
way which helps calves or 
piglets to survive then obvi- 
ously that is good for both 
their welfare and for die 
former who wants his ani- 
mals to survive for both 
mnoral and commercial, 
reason”, says Broom. “The 
same is generally true in the 
case at milk production 
where the interests of the 
animals and the formers coin- 
cide. But that is not always 
the case. 

“If you overcrowd chick- 
ens. calves and sows then you 
get behavioural and physio- 
logical problems as well as 
susceptibility to disease. And 
if it is decided that some 
alternative system is better 


for their welfare it is likely 
that it will cost the farm er 
more to produce his eggs or 
meat”. 

Faced with having to pay 
for their humane beliefs, he 
nonetheless believes that the 
public would accept the nec- 
essary 15-20 percent increase 
in the cost of some of their 
form products^ 

At the moment attitudes 
to animal welfare vary 
throughout Europe with the 
British. German. Swiss, 
Swedish and Dutch more j 
concerned and in favour of 
legislation than the French, 
Italians and Spanish. 

B ut even in this country 
eggs selling as “free 
range” are frequently 
produced in conditions 
winch Broom describes with 
typical understatement as 
“not particularly good. 

“I think most farmers are 
aware of welfare issues and 
would prefer to be able to 
keep their animals in a way 
which would be better for 
their welfare. Box in some 
cases they don't know what 
would be better and they are 
afraid of losing their 
livelihood”. 

He stresses that it is not his . 
job to pass moral judgements * 

on the uses to which animals 
are put but merely to im- 
prove the way they are treat- 
ed. But he admits that "he 
would like to see a reduction 
in the number of animals 
used in laboratory research 
and an endvto white veal 
production altogether. 

“The evidence that the 
methods used to rear calves 
for the production of white 
veal are bad for their welfare 
is very dear cut," he says. 

And he feels that while zoos 
have an important education- 
al function, it is one which 
could be adequately served 
with considerably fewer such 
establishments”

Laughter in the reign 


King Juan Carlos of Spain starts a visit 
to London tom orrow accompanied bv 
the vivacious gueen Sofia. She spoke 
to Douglas Keay in Madrid about the 
trip and her family ties with Britain 



B: 








aughter spjfls out 0 f 
the Queen of Spain at 
the end of practically 
■“ every sentence. She is 
vivacious, yet photographs 
almost invariably show her 
looking glum. 

She shares the same counte- 
nance at rimes of Queen 
Eli zab eth ■ II — they arc both 
direct descendants of Queen 
Victoria — and she admits: 
“When Fm listening to some- 
one making a speech my face 
goes glum. I can't help it I was 

{ ust born that way. And yet 
'm not glum at aDT 
. Que en Sofia spoke to me in 
a sitting room of herprivate 
apartments at the Zarzuela 
Palace, outside Madrid. The 
walls- are a striking pistachio 
green — “there is an ice cream 
the same colour” - with a 
dropped ceiling that concealed 
the subdued lighting. 

“Tbe rest of the palace is 
much more conservative. 
“Wood-panelled", said the 
Queen. She said “wood- 
paneDed” as though the very 
words implied deep sobriety, 
and she laughed. 

Queen Sofia's accent is as 
appealing as her bubbling 
sense of humour. She was 
born a Greek Princess, and 
has also lived in South Africa 
and Egypt She speaks Span- 
ish* English, Greek, and Ger- 
man — “with perhaps a little 
French**. At 48 she is still one 
of the most attractive mem- 
bers of the large famil y of 
European royalty, some reign- 
ing, some in exile, some in- 
waiting. but all related to one 
another. 

This week's State visit to 
Britain is the first by a King 
and Queen of Spain since 
King Alfonso XTTI was the 
guest of Edward VH 81 years 
ago. But both Juan Carlos arid 
Sofia make frequent visits to 
Britain — “it is like a second 
home”. Queen Sofia is very 
dose to her brother, ex-King 
Constantine of Greece, who 
lives in Hampstead wkh bis 
wife and their three children. 

If possible, the. Queen 
would rove tp be_at. Westmin- 
ster Abbey Tor Prince 
Andrew's wedding. She has 
met the Prince only twice — 
once when he was a child, and 
more recently at the wedding 
of Princess Marie Astrid of. 
Luxembourg. 

Family ties mean a great 
deal to the Queen. She con- 
fesses she is not good at 
writing letters, but she uses tbe 
phone a lot to keep in touch 
with her relatives in Britain 
and around Europe. 

Queen Sofia’s immediate 
family is very close. Her own 
life story and that of King 
Juan Carlos already contains 
enough adventure, romance 
and political intrigue to attract 
Hollywood producers. 

Sofia was just two years old 
when the Germans invaded 


Greece in 1940. forcing her 
. parents. Prince Paul and Prin- 
cess Frcderilca, to seek refbge 
in Sooth Africa. She returned 
at the age of eight, crossing the 
Mediterranean m a n aval 
destroyer from Alexandria to 
a country of which she had no 
memory. Her parents became 
king and queen in 1947. Her 
father died when Sofia was 27, 
and ber mother eventually 
went to live in India to study 
religion. 

“It was a disturbed child- 
hood, but it was a wonderful 
childhood too. .We had a 
marvellous Scottish nanny — 
we called her nursie — who 
was tike a mother to us. She is 
70 now and lives in England, 
but we still keep m touch. We 
hope to go and visit her when 
we come over.” 

The King’s childhhood was 
even . more traumatic. IBs 
grandfather. King Aifbnos, 
had abdicated in 1931, but 
when Franco looked for an 
heir to m aintain his authori- 
tarian regime he ch os e tbe 
grandson of Alfonso rather 
than the ex-King’s son, Don 
J uan 

Sofia met ber husband for 
tbe first time when Juan 
Carlos accepted an invitation 
from Sofia’s parents to join 
them on a Mediterranean 
cruise: She was 15, be was 2 1 
months older. However, ro- 
mance did not blossom until 
seven years later when they 
both came to England as 
guests at the Duke of Kent's 
wedding. “We were alone. We 
were without our parents, and 
we more or Jess got engaged in 
London.” 



»ou!d go down ir. history as 
"Juan the Brier. Bui the 
Spanish joke about himself 
that Juan Carlos really appre- 
ciates goes iike this: "Why was 
Juan Carlos crowned in a 
submarine 0 Because deep 
down he isn’t stupid.” 

From the moment he be- 
came King he worked steadily 
and cleverly towards his ambi- 
tion of cresting a modem 
constitutional monarchy. His 
wife, who had just seen her 
own brother toppled from the 
throne of Greece just a year 
earlier, was wholeheartedly 
behind her husband in his 
plans. 

Just two (fays after her 
installation as Queen. Sofia 
returned to Madrid Universi- 
ty to continue her studies in 
contemporary humanities, 
mixing with other students. 

“I was very nervous about 
doing it”, she said, “but 1 
knew 1 had :o break the ice 
immediately or it would have 
been more difficult later on.” 


Queen Sofia of Spain: her life story mutum* enough romance to attract Hollywood 


S he saysfActually, my 
parents had never 
thought of my marry- 
ing into the Spanish 
royal family. For one thing, 
there was the difference in onr 
countries* religions — Roman 
Catholic . and Greek 
Orthodox” 

.That " particular problem 
was solved when Juan 
Carlos's grandmother. Queen 
Fna, travelled — at the age of 
70 — to Rome tor ask the 
Pope’s blessing’ on a double 
ceremony. The couple were 
married in 1962 — Princess 
Alexandra was a bridesmaid — 
and took up residence in the 
Zarzuela Palace, ; a former 
hunting lodge which Franco 
had put at Juan Carlos’s 
disposal two years earlier. 

Franco himself lived just 
five minutes away, at El 
Prado, but the two households 
were completely independent 
In those days most people, 
including the majority of 
Spaniards, believed that Juan 
Carlos was completely under 
the thumb of Franco and that 
following the. dictator's death 
his protege would rule Spain 
in a snnilarty autocratic man- 
ner. In. public and in official 


circles he sometimes gave the 
impression of being somewhat 
dull, given to muscle building 
rather than brain 
improvement 

“The trouble was that dur- 
ing ail the years he was Irving 
here with Franco, how could 
he say anything of what he 
really thought? He 2zad to say 
nothing. And - so everyone 
thought be was not very 
bright”. 

Juan Carlos and Sofia took 
strength and comfort from 
each other and led their lives 
as privately as possible. No 
one, not even a maid or police 
officer, accompanied them on 
their four — month long 
honeymoon. Everything was 
arranged through a travel 
agency. Towards the end, 
passing through London on 
the way back to Madrid, Sofia 
told reporters: “I only wish it 
could have lasted for ever.” 

Today, the King and Queen 
still protect their privacy. 
Although the small Zarzuella 
Palace contains several of- 
fices, ah the staff go home at 
the end of the day, leaving 
only an ADC in residence. 

One wing of the Palace is 
occupied by the King and 
Queen. On the other side of 
the original 200 year old 
building there is another wing, 
specially built for their three 
children, daughters Elena and 
Cristina, and their youngest 
child, 18-year-old Felipe, 


Prince of the Asturias and heir 
to the Throne. 

Felipe, a keen astronomer 
who also likes riding motorcy- 
cles. is at present training in 
the military academy. This 
will be followed by spells with 
the navy and the airforce. 


H is mother told me: 
“We have asked 
that he be treated 
like anyone else as 
far as possible. When he 
doesn’t get up in time for 
morning inspection then he 
gets arrested. Of course.” And 
has that happened? “It has 
happened just once,” replied 
die Queen, wagging a finger 

and laughing . 

Bene, at 22 tbe eldest of the 
three children, finishes a 
teacher training course this 
year while Cristina, 21 in 
June, is studying political 
science at Madrid University. 

Queen Sofiahopes both her 
daughters would take up jobs 
at tbe end of their studies — 
“they would certainly be al- 
lowed to". Similarly there 
would be no problem about 
their marrying outside royal 
circles. The same would apply 
to the heir to the throne when 
he came to choose a wife and 
future Queen. 

“All we ask is that they 
many someone who is nice, 
who will look after them, and 
is a decent person. It would 


not matter if they had titles or 
not, though I think they 
should have the same son of 
educational background.” 

With the exception of 
Prince Felipe while be is away, 
tbe whole family lives together 
in the palace and invariably 
meets up at mealtimes, “be- 
cause sometimes that is the 
only time we have a chance of 
seeing one another” 

Each morning everyone 
rises at 8.30 and breakfasts 
together between nine and 
nine-thirty, discussing wbat’s 
in that morning's newspapers 
before going their separate 
ways: the King and Queen to 
offices and audiences, the 
daughters to college. 

After Franco’s death 11 
years ago. Juan Carlos was- 
prodaimed King within two 
days. But few thought he 
would reign for long. One 
politician prophesised that he 


A nother deliberate ac- 
tion was to have all 
three of her children 
educated at a local 
day school — the Queen used 
to run them to classes herself. 
But the Spanish people were 
use! to the rigid conservatism 
of Dona Carmen Polo Franca 
who always kept her distance, 
and it has taken them a little 
ume to adjust to a Queen who 
goes on royal walkabouts, who 
plays a very active pan in 
helping mentally and physi- 
cally subnormal children, and 
who is often photographed 
skiing, or sailing with her 
husband. 

“The reinstatement of the 
monarchy really surprised me. 
because nobody thought it 
would come back. It was over 
40 years, after all, since there 
had’ been a king Of course, 
one never knows what is going 
to happen next. I think the 
attraction is in having some- 
one at the head who is not 
involved in politics. Who is 
there for all Spaniards.” 

Although the King no long- 
er has any political power, his 
influence and popularity with 
most Spaniards is immensely 
strong. But always, they are 
surrounded by many guards — 
in 1981. the King twice avert- 
ed military coups. 

In the course of her life. 
Queen Sofia has had to face 
several contingencies and dan- 
gers. And tbe new monarchy 
in Spain Is only just over ten 
years old. Bui as Queen Sofia 
says, with a smile of course: “I 
am an optimist”

Women adrift in 
manual labour 


A friend has been giving me 
advice about my careen she 
thinks I should apply to a 
maker of some kind of baf- 
fling technological machinery 
and offer to write die insnuo 
lion manual for him- 

I reminded ber that I am 
tbe soman who, when handed 
a cassette and asked to put it 
in the tape-deck of a car, tried 
to slide it into the ashtray. 
She said that that is «hat she 
meant. Since my life is com- 
posed of a fight to tbe death 
with inanimate objects (and a 
few animate ones too, for that 
matter) I would never be so 
presumptuous as to think that 
somebody who wanted to 
learn how to operate a wash- 
ing-machine already knew 
bow to do it. 

This is tbe assumption that 
all writers of explanatory 
literature make. In fact, this 
is tbe assumption that every- 
one makes when they possess 
a skill that yon don't. People 
who have no difficulty remov- 
ing tbe innards of a vacuum- 
cleaner produce instruction 
manuals where all the illus- 
trations look like bits of 
exotic jewellery designed by 
Andrew Logan. 

When one has absolntely 
no sense of direction, it is 
ridiculous to be told “You 
can’t wi« it” I have missed 
the Mona Lisa, the Bridge of 
Sighs and the Frick museum 
all because 1 was directed to 
all three by people who conld 
hate found their » my to the 
right place in their sleep. 

One of the problems Is that, 
the world being tbe way it is, 
most instructions are written 
by men and have to be 
interpreted by women. Men 
become familiar with man- 
uals from an early age. as 
soon as they glne together 
their first balsa wood model 
plane, in fact. Women are 
denied this early training as 
Barbie dolls and my Little 
Pony don't come with instruc- 
tions on how to play with 
them; yon are just supposed to 
know. And “knowing” is what 
women are good aL They can 
cm out dresses without using 
a paper pattern and follow 
cookery books that state 
vaguely “cook until done”, or 
“shape into medium sized 
balls.” It's supposed to be a 
question of trusting one’s 
riKtfnrft and men don't seem 
to have any to trust. 

They don't seem to have 
any memories either, which is 
why they are not as bitter as 
women when things fall apart. 
If you have forgotten all about 

the enchanted evenings, yon 
can't regret their passing. On 
tbe other hand, you can't 
match ap sofa cushions to the

A book out of the bushes 


Sally Brampton 


talks to a 


compulsive 


writer who has 


finally gone 


into print 


Sharman Macdonald’s tele- 
phone rang twice on the 
morning we met. The BBC 
wanted to hire her Edinburgh 
accent for a documentary 
about drugs; and Books and 
Bookmen wished to intoview 
her for its columns. Both calls 
pnwiM her for both mis s ed 
the point The BBC had 
forgotten that she gave up 
acting several years ago ana 
Books and Bookm en wa s not 
even aware that her first novel 
The Beast is published today. 

It is a delightful book based 
“all did sideways” on an 
actual day in her life, a picnic 
in Hampstead which Macdon- 
ald knew she would write 
about even before it hap- 
pened. Nothing unusual in 
that, she hastens to explain. 
She writes about everything. 

It took ber almost a year to 
finish the book, “sitting and 
staring at the forsythia and 
recalling* mainly on the front 
doorstep of the two-up two- 
down in south-west 
where she lives with Kf 
husband, 

Knightley. and their wo chil- 
dren, Caleb, six, and Kara, 
one. 



Macdonald was progressing 
from children's theatre to 
fringe and workshop, eventu- 
ally appearing at tbe Royal 
Court and regularly on televi- 
sion “in various comedy stuff 
none of it remarkable". All the 
time she was writing: plays, 
short stories, fairy stories. 

Then one day the magic 
faded from the footlights. “] 
simply didn't want to act any 
more. The theatre seemed 
very dark. It seemed as if the 
light diminished every time 1 
went in there.” When the 
Bush accepted her play it 
provided her with the option 
she needed. 

She prefers writing to act- 


ing — “basically you're your

It^was. her husband who 


posted off her first play. When 
/ was a Girl / used to Scream 
and Shout , which was per- 
formed at London’s Bush 
Theatre in November 1984 
and later at the Edinburgh 
Festival It won her the Stan- 
dard award for the most 
promising playwright of the 
year and the Thames Televi- 
sion bursary to be writer “ 
residence at the Bush Theatre. 

Among the people who saw 
it was Michael Hshwick, an 
editor for the publishes 
Chatio and Windus, who 
wrote and asked her whether 
she might by any chance have 
a novel tucked away- Macdon- 
ald, who had just completed 
The Beast . thought I can’t 

the courage to send n to 
Fishwick who, by then, had 
moved to Collins. She posted 
i» op the day that Keira was 
horn and three weeks teg got 
a fetter back from Colbns 
saying they wanted to publish 


iL “I really was surprised” she 
admits. “F didn't know if it 
was a novel or not” 

She is 35 with a froth of dark 
hair and a fare which she has 
always fell was “very 
textured” as is that of Naomi, 
one of tbe women in her book. 
However, it is another charac- 
ter, Roger, who she feds 
resembles her most -“his 
unsureness and hesitation, his 
fear, basically”. The story took 
shape as she went along. 
“Things that happened when I 
was writing became pan of it” 
When her hair began moult- 
ing, the same thing happened 
to Rogers. When she started 
jogging, so did he. The book is 
about an ordinary Sunday 
outing which turns into a 
humorous and dreamlike ad- 
venture. 

She was born in 
Glasgow. Macdonald met her 
husband, who was appearing 
in a play in Edinburgh, when 
she was 20 and married him 
five years later. Meanwhile 


own boss”. She wanted her 
book to be “life enhancing” 
bnt says there are no great 
depths to it. “I think I'm a 
Story-teller. I can't write mes- 
sages. I’ve tried to write 
political pieces but they die on 
me and I do regret that". 

She says that she has anoth- 
er two books which she wants 
to write but first she has to 
complete a play which impre- 
sario Michael Codron com- 
missioned her to write after 
seeing When I war a Girl I 
used to Scream and Shm.Sbe 
has already spent the advance 
on an old Ford Escort chris- 
tened Auntie Nellie after a 
character mentioned in the 
play. 

She has been approaching 
her first publication day with 
some trepidation. “It’s so 
quiet”, she marvels. “With a 
play at least you know you're 
working up to opening night 
but with this, it's just 
Monday.” 

The publishers, at any rate, 
are delighted. When they first 
read The Beast they told her 
"nobody writes like this". 
Says Macdonald: “I think it 
was meant to be a compliment 
but I don’t know what they 
meant. I've been thinking 
about it ever since.”

THE FIRST GIFT 




Flying from The Zenith 
An Angel of Water. 

All the Kingdom's hurl rivers flicker 
In its veins. 

Wells marked with a cross, blocked wells, lost wells 
Are its pores. 

Its purity 

Is the light and silence of all eyes — 

The re-offering 0 f light 

Washed from the refuse of gutters. 


It flies through the hair of the head 
And through the manna of Spring hail. 

It flies under the dream-flutter of eyelids 

And through the crucifixion of streetlight and star in a tear. 

Its wingbeat 

Shatters from the taps. 


The Angel is flying with cupped hands. 
In its dripping hands a flawless mirror. 


In that mirror the one face of the millions 
(The centre of those rays) 

Bends to sip the wholeness of that water. 


AN ALMOST THORNLESS CROWN 




(Titania choreographs a ballet, using 
her attendants.) 


Lei the first be a Snowdrop, her neck bowed 
Watching her modesty — 

Her spermy, fattening gland 
Cold under the ground. 

Let her link an arm 
With a Foxglove, raggily dressed, 
Long-bodied, a rough blood-rope 
Of dark nipples and full cup. 

So she links 

With a Daffodil — one 

Whose chill, scrubbed face and cold throat 

Looks utterly true and pure. 

The hail on her nape, her bare feet in mire. 


Let that one twine her arm around one, a Rose 

Who just now woke 

And wakes wider, seems 

To stretch awake, to peel back 

Bedclothes, to throw off nightdress - to step 

Into the shower, almost to sing 

Flush with morning light — but cannot 

Wake below the neck, or let sunbeams 

Into the sleeping earth (who makes this 

Effort in its dream, stirring a little). 


Let her be linked 

With somebody slender and tall, autumnal Balsam. 
The full pitcher trembling, at evening - 
Humid, soul -drinking insect. 

Like a child-bride of Nepal 

In her pinkish-purple sari, slightly too big for her. 

Over-painted by temple harlots.

More Daffodils - find some nervy daughters. 
Sober sisters, bonnets stiffly bowed 
Watching the gravestones. 

Equinox 

Flint-raw and steely in their glances, 

Who touch at themselves with cold fingeis 
And think upright thoughts.

Laughing bearing the mad can-can music. 
And it comes over them 
To dash off wilder every minute. 
Bare-legged in their tatters, 

Away alongside scruffy rivers —

Now here and there k - 

A Pansy, little pug-face. J 

Baby Panda — #J 

(An intricate, masterly Japanese brush-stroke V 

Dabbed her identity signature) — 

now twine over AS 

And under hot and tipsy Honeysuckles, A 

Their gawky grace, their dark, burgundy flushes 
Already silked a little 

As each one dips her neck through our exclamations. 

And opens a gentle hydra 
To sip human dreams. 

Lips parted, a filament of salmon 

Between the tongue and the teeth, a child's eye in a woman's body. 
This little rhubarb dragon, 

This viper in the leaves 

Bites a numbness, in an anaesthetic perfume. 

Her damage done so kindly 1 


Her clutch of heart-shock, splitting trumpets 
Softens into a scrollwork of eyelashes. 


Now weave in there 

The lofty Arum Lily. She hunches 

Her fleshless scapulae 

And recites in silence from Imitatio Christ i 

With a demented grin. 

Her sweat congeals to pearl 
In a nunnery of the profane — 

Fallen stars her sole nutriment. 


Link her with one more Rose 

Whose dumb utterance cannot be decoded. 

Not a lyrical cry. like the anguished Lily, 

But a muffled thunder of perturbation. 

Wide open, but her secret averted. 

Mountain behind mountain, dawn beyond dawn. 


And now a Cyclamen — her breathless dance 

A ballerina soaring 

Over her astounded audience. 


And here the heavy part, a tumbling peal of Rhododendron, 

The knickerbocfcer lobes, the excess crumple of lips 
Shadowed with bloodier darkness, 

A cry from deep in the plant, hurting the throat and the mouth helpless open, 
A rejoicing, announcing burden of ay. 

An offering cry, and the mouth left open — 

Like the body-offering of a beast, that bewilders the eyes of the beast.

stipple of freckles darkening the fine tissue.

With more Snowdrops. Snowdrops half under snow 
Waiting to be freed. 

As nineteenth-century vicarage maidens. 

Erect, bare- shouldered, bowed, waiting for grace 
At a tea-party — 

Their faces are so childish! 

A congregation of bells. 

Tiny domes 
Of serious worship — 

all Cordelias. 

Or else all green-veined Goneriis 
Under the empty frenzy of hoar-frost. 


Or a little court, all Queens, 
Listening for the Moon.

THE SECOND GIFT 


Flying in from the dark perimeter 
A care-worn AngcL An old midwife crone 
With the touch of Earth. 

Our past under one aim 
As a roll of TV Times 
For bandages. 

Our future under the other — 

For anaesthesia 
A portable telly. 


This Angel is flying 

Through skin bones bricks mortar. 

A hag with bat's wings 

That are sflky-soft as caul-tissue. 

An Angel with the earth’s healing touch 
Flying with cupped hands 


Through the worm, into the ear of wheat, 
A speck into the ovum. 


A rusty old bread-knife for scalpel 
Or maybe the shard of a bottle. 


Not Frankincense, not Myrrh, in her cupped hands, ' 

Not SpennacettL 

In ber mountainous hands 

She has scooped up something brighter than blinding snow. 




It must be the goodness of earth 
(As from the Islands' every comer 


As for Adam.) 


THE SMELTING AND THE FORGING 


(Over the cauldron, shapes appear in the 
vapour rising from the molten metal) 


Here is the Dream-Time Hunter, and the Elk — 
So willing, their noses 
Touch at his nose. 

And the Salmon through the ford 
So many, so many 
He is knocked off his feet 


Here is the Wanderer, who slipped in a dream 
From the Mediterranean’s 
Clangorous womb. 

Who crept up the Tamar. 

In the Orchard of the Blest 
His thanks are tall stones. 


t 


And here is the head of the Raven King, 
To Tower Hill, from Harlech, 

Singing and letting 
Tales to kill sorrow. 

And Ur who hid wisdom 
In the sldn of a Heron. 


And here are the prints of the tread of the Legions 
In the tempered day. 

The chromosomes stamped 
With alien Latin. 

And in the skull's crypts 
Mosaic of Olympus. 


\ 


And here, Wolf-headed, the mercenary brothos 
For pity of the Islanders — 

Brains and bones softened 
By Roman lead — 

Breed from whimpering giris 
Howling berserkers. 



fit 


And here are the shoulders that inched the fongships 
Under HoMemess. 

And the broad-vowdled women 
Of the vales, as if they sang. 

Nursing the North 
Sea's hard, hacked edges.. 


m 


And here is the poltergeist Luther who gave 
Mary to Satan. 

And the boy Cromwell's vision — 

Himself as Luther 
Performing Macbeth — 

Entering the bloodstream. 


And here is the harp that came on the air 
Asa fairy bride 
Murmuring Gaelic — 

That set its chords 
In place of the bars 
In the dungeons of English. 




And here, in the scald of the Kingdom's cauldron. 
The peacock oils 
From Shiva's thumb, 

And the medicine seed 
From under the tongue 
Of the African lion. 


So here is the metal yon pour in the mould. 
Now fold it, hammer it. 

Re-fokl rt, re-hammer it 
Till millionfold 
It is shaped. And you polish 
The Ring of the People. 


The Crown of the Kingdom. 


THE THIRD GIFT 


Flying from the Nadir 
As from the mouth of a furnace 
An Angel of Blood. 


A lucky omen. 

Only the darkest hour 
Finds this star. 


Only the emptiest eye finds it 

Between the faintest stars. The slightest smudge of opinion 
Will miss it. • 


Wingbeat invisible 
As your heart-beat’s aurora 
Over the roof of your mouth. 


Unheard, like the drum 


In your fingertips, that are there, as if abandoned. 
Before dawn, on the coverlet, waiting for you. 


Unfelt ^ 

As the shared circulation through the warm dark inside the warm darkness 
Of unborn child inside mother. 



And single 

As the garment of blood that sews stranger to stranger 


Behind the sequin separateness of faces. 

The garment patched from the jigsaw cloths of a 


country. 




& 


Single 

As the tangled, crimson, twisted yarn 
Of lineage and language. 


Single as the Sun after midnight 

It flies towards us from under the soles of the feet.

The weekend round of half 
point interest rate cuts across 
"V the world, the second set of 
cuts in six weeks, is the surest 
confirmation yet that the con- 
quest -of inflation, strongly 
reinforced by the collapse . of 
oil prices, is bringing an end to 
the era of dear money. 
Cheaper money is vital if the 
recovery of the world economy 
is to continue; also to remove 
the distortion against long-

figures. When he showed 
apparent indifference to the 
sagging value of sterling, 
speculators concluded that he 
was really soil on inflation and 
they could safely keep on 
selling. The third time should 
be luckier, because British 
interest rate cuts are taking 
place against, a much more 
favourable international back- 
ground. 

The first crucial element was 


Stod B bS a S^ 1 *“* ' ' 1he Unit£d States’ discovery of

high in most industrial coun- 
tries. 

The sour note in this cheer- 
ful tune is that Britain is still 
following rather thaw leading 
the band. Banks’ base rates 
still stand at 10.5 per cent here, 
while the official discount rate 
is 6.5 per cent in the United 
States and 3.5 per cent in 
Japan. The figures may not be 
folly comparable but the gap is 
plain enough . 

British industry might have 
been rewarded for the pains of 
the Government's financi al 
strategy with a steady foil in 
interest rates at any time over 
the past four years. Until last 
summer, President Reagan 
might have been blamed for 
delaying that reward. By 
adopting the opposite budget- 


the penalties of a rampaging 
dollar. Since then the Reagan 
administration has switched to 
sustaining its industry and 
depressing its currency. The 
sudden about turn in oil prices 
completed the transformation. 
International co-operation 
helped achieve a 25 per cent 
advance of the yen against the 
dollar through lower rather 
than higher interest rates. And 
the recent adjustment of cur- 
rencies in the European Mone- 
tary System has likewise 
allowed the weaker brethren to 
loosen their monetary belts. 

The collapse in oil prices has 
made that the natural way 
forward — taking the steam 
out of any global inflationary 
threats. Even after the Ameri- 
can raid on Libya, which 
might have had a unifying 


cent retail price inflation may- 
look impressive historically. It 


ary route to the same anti- ■ effect on Arab oil producers 


inflationary ends, he saddled 
other currencies with an all- 
powerful dollar ratcheted up 
by high interest rates. 

Mr Nigel Lawson has made 
two previous attempts to as- 
sert that this country’s own 
tight financial conditions jus- 
tified lower sterling money 
costs. They ended in humiliat- 
ing reversals to prop up the 
pound. That, it must be said, 
was also partly because the 
Chancellor’s claims had to be 
taken on trust rather than on 
the strength of the money 


comparable to the Yom 
Kippur war in 1973, Opec 
ministers have shelved any 
attempt to lever up the price 
until the autumn. And disrup- 
tion to currency markets has 
thus for proved a one-day 
wonder, though it remains a 
cloud on the horizon. 

At home, Mr Lawson has 
come to terms with the cur- 
rency markets. The Chancellor 
confirmed last week that the 
Treasury and the Bank of 
England have relegated their 
interminable wrestling match 


UNEASY IN THE MIDDLE 


As European Community for- 
eign ministers meet today for 
the third time in a week to try 
and formulate some joint re- 
sponse to the confrontation of 
Libya and the United States, 
they could be forgiven for 
asking whether their journeys 
are really necessary. - 

Within hours of their indeci- 
sive first meeting a week ago 
(which urged restraint on the 
United States) American war- . 
planes were airborne. Within 
hours of their second meeting 
on Thursday (which produced 
renewed calls for restraint), it 
was reported that Washington 
would consider further mili- 
tary action. 

At today's meeting Sir Geof- 
frey Howe is expected to 
appeal for new diplomatic and 
economic restrictions on 
Libya. (These should certainly, 
include a veto on _ the 
Commission's absurd decision 
to sell subsidised butter to 
Colonel Gadaffi, thus enabling 
him to buy more guns.) It is to 
be hoped that his cause will be 
heeded. But if agreement to 
take action could not be 
reached either in the wake of 
the West Berlin bombing or in 
the immediate aftermath of 
the raid on Tripoli, it is 
doubtful whether the weekend 
of consultations and reflec- 
tions in the separate capitals 
will produce strong and con- 
certed action either. 

So for, the only European 
policy to have emerged is one 
founded on the lowest com- 
mon denominator: fear. There 
is the fear that any action 
could attract reprisals against ^ 
citizens and property. That is a 


reasonable recipe for caution. 
There is also the fear of losing 
lucrative trade with Libya and 
the Arab world. That is hypo- 
critical because much of the 
recent growth in trade between 
Europe and Libya is a result of 
foe American boycott. 

: But the other and possibly 
greatest fear underlying the 
European Community's re- 
sponse is of losing its fragile 
facade of unity of appearing 
weak and. divided. Europe’s 
initial calls on the United 
States to show restraint went 
unheeded. Europe and' its 
scarcely suppressed ambition 
to be a third polical foroe in the 
world — between the two 
superpowers — were made to 
look inconsequential 

The founders of the Euro- 
pean Community always had 
the hope that it would evolve 
into a political- actor on the 
world stage. As a practical 
matter, however, it was ini- 
tially conceived as an eco- 
nomic organisation, a 
common market, which would 
operate to general benefit 
Only recently have , its inter- 
national (as opposed to supra- 
national) ambitions taken 
practical form. 

But once the member-states 
of the European Community 
moved towards a common 
foreign foreign policy, they 
were always likely to experi- 
ence difficulties in deciding 
what their political identity 
should be. 

Diversity had, after aH, in- 
creased as the Community 
expanded. Individual mem- 
bers brought with them dif- 


ferent traditions of relations 
with the world outside, dif- 
ferent past empires, different 
attitudes to war and death, and 
so to terrorism. The American 
clash' with Libya, wfaicb drew 
on all these attitudes, ruth- 
lessly exposed the divisions. If 
the European Community 
cannot agree on so straight- 
forward a matter as action to 
combat terrorism, what likeli- 
hood is there that the Commu- 
nity will formulate an overall 
foreign policy? 


But the embryonic structure 
of EEC coordination exposed 
another division: that between 
Europe and the United States, 
with Britain uneasily in the 
middle. In this respect the EEC 
could prove to be an obstacle 
to the unity of the North 
Atlantic Treaty Organisation, 
to which most of the 1 2 belong. 

NATO has, of course, a long 
history of internal disagree- 
ments. But they were resolved 
in a framework in which each 
side of the Atlantic could 
influence the other. What the 
Libya episode has dem- 
onstrated is that EEC foreign 
policy coordination has a ten- 
dency to divide rather than 
unite the alliance - especially 
in crises where the Soviet 
threat plays only a marginal 
part 

The prospect is, thankfully, 
not immediate. In the immedi- 
ate future however the coun- 
tries of Europe would do well 
to contemplate the possibility 
that an all-European foreign 
policy and the continuing 
authority of Nato may even- 
tually prove incompatible.

fight against inflation. They 
have shown that by not seri- 
ously attacking sterling as a 

petrocurrency during foe oil 
price collapse. 

New cost pressures at home 
are now preventing Britain 
from catching up with the 
lower interest rates our 
competitors now enjoy. The 
sharp foil in the twelve month 
rate of retail price inflation 
announced on Friday pro- 
vided foe perfect backdrop to 
foe half point cut in base rates 
and could have further to go. 
In the light of the weekend cuts 
in Washington and Tokyo, foe 
Bank of England might have 
seemed overcautious in resist- 
ing a full point cut The Bank 
has, however, good reason for 
caution. 

The full year target of 3.5 per 


look impressive historically. It 
is not so impressive against 
stable or failing prices in 
Germany and Japan. Trends 
in the competitiveness of Brit- 
ish industry are even less 
impressive. Unit wage costs 
are now rising at a rate of 
almost 7 per cent much more 
than in rival countries that will 
draw greater benefit from 
lower oil prices. Business is 
slipping back into bad habits. 

Some argue that as money 
supply guidelines dissolve, in- 
terest rate policy should be set 
according to the trend in. wage 
costs. The Bank, while not 
going that far, rightly sees a 
link. Britain still cannot afford 
to lead interest rates down 
because industry is throwing 
away its reward. 


Front the Organising Secretary of 
the Southern Examining Group 
Sir, As the debate about the 
introduction of the new GCSE 
examination system rages amid 
growing parental concern. I would 
welcome the opportunity, on be- 
half of the five examination 
boards io the Southern Examining 
Group, to confirm that these 
boards will not be offering un- 
official GCE O-tevel or CSE 
examinations after 1987 and that 
all our energies wiD be directed 
towards GCSE. 

Approved GCSE syllabuses in 
all subjects will be despatched 10 
schools and colleges throughout 
the country by the end of May. 
These syllabuses will contain full 
specimen question papers and 
marking schemes, together with a 
wide range of information about 
the assessment of the compulsory 
coursework components. 

I hope that teachers win be 
reassured by these syllabuses on 
two counts. First, they will still 
recognise the subjects they have 
taught in the past, and secondly, 
they will see that the group has 
done its best to ensure that the 
coursewxirk which their pupils will 
be required to present will arise 
naturally from the work which 
ihey would normally have been 
expected to complete as part of 
their normal scheme of lessons. In 
other words, they' will not be 
overwhelmed by the need to 
prepare a series of extended 


projects, as many teachers and 
parents currently fear. 


parents currently fear. 

U is also important to record 
that for the majority of subjects 
draft syllabuses, which provide a 
reliable guide to syllabus content, 
have been in schools and colleges 
since last September. The national 
criteria, which provide the frame- 
work for syllabus development 
and contain details about the style 
of examination papers and ques- 
tions. were distributed even ear- 
tier, in January, 198S. Teachers 
have therefore had some opportu- 
nity to consider what the new 
courses will require of them by 
way of additional resources and 
new classroom leaching and learn- 
ing strategies. 

The number of teachers attend- 
ing the programme of in-service 
training has varied between 30 per 


Attack on Libya 

From Mr Michael Males, MP for 
Hampshire East (Conservative) 
Sir. Your excellent leader, K The 
Case for the raid"(April IS), 
examines folly the American ac- 
tion and argues why it was 
justified and supported. But critics 
are advancing a more pernicious 
argument than simple opposition 
to the use of force which needs 
equally robust refutation. It is 
that. even if the attacks were 
justified and lawful, Britain 
should have no part in them 
bcause it puts our citizens in 
danger of reprisal. 

Aside from the moral cowardice 
of such an attitude, it is based on a 
totally false perception. For we are 
— and have been for many years — 
in danger from the indiscriminacy 
of Gadaffi's terrorism. You re- 
mind us of Yvonne Fletcher's 
death, bm not of the two bomb 
explosions the month before 
which injured more than 20 
British citizens in Manchester and 
London, for which three Libyans 
were convicted. The women and 
children blown out of the TWA 
aircraft could equally well have 
been British, and we could have 
been seeing the funerals in the past 
few days of soldiers from the 
Gordon Highlanders rather than 
the American soldiers with whom 
they are serving to keep ihe peace 
in West Berlin. 

And what of those who say that 
they are against our support of the 
raid because — tragically — inno- 
cent civilians were killed in Trip- 
oli? It is quite dear that the 
pinpoint targets needed extra ac- 
curacy which only the FI I Is could 
provide and that their use guar- 
anteed the minimum risk to 
civilians. Would these Pontius

article of March 31. which was 
devoted to the benefits broughi to 
France by M Jack Lang's manage- 
ment of her cultural affairs, that 
the pyramid in the Louvre 
planned by M Pei “has had the 
advantage of allowing 
archaeological excavations to take 
place in the I2ih-century crypt 
which will be on show to the 
public. 


May I be permitted to observe 
that the archaeological excava- 
tions which have restored to view 
the foundations of the medieval 
Louvre took place in the Cow 
Carrde - that is. approximately 
250 metres from the site of the 
proposed pyramid. 

Moreover, the archaeological 


Historic farmhouse 


From the Chief Planning Officer of 
Dacorum Borough Council 
Sir. Some balance needs 10 be 
given to the article “Problems 
with planning; 2" (April 3) which 
was written without any reference 
10 the local planning authority. 

The site of the warehouse in 
question, over 100 metres from 
Comer Farm, was previously a 
foundry occupied by Hemel 
Hempstead Engineering. The 
foundry gave rise to local environ- 
mental problems such as dust and 
ferric oxide emissions. 

Access 10 the foundry was 
narrow and dose to Corner Farm. 
If the planning application for use 
of the foundry site for a warehouse 
development had not been made, 
another industrial use of the same 
use class could have reoccupied 
the site without planning per- 


cent and 80 per cent. We are 
hoping that all these teachers who 
have so far been unable to attend a 
training course wii» now be trained 
during the tuo-day school closures 
at the end of the summer term 10 
which the Secretary of State has 
recently agreed, specifically for 
this purpose. 

The most important training — 
that which is specific to the 
syllabuses - will commence in 
September and it is at that time 
that the focus will be on the 
different styles of classroom prac- 
tice which GCSE will require. 

Teachers are worried that there 
w ill be no textbooks to assist them 
in planning their lessons. In 
common with the other examin- 
ing groups, however, the southern 
group will be providing training 
materials which will be written to 
meet the specific needs of its 
syllabuses and the gap in textbook 
provision mav prove eo be less 
serious than many fear. 

A further concern of parents is 
that employers will be unaware of 
the significance of the new 
examinations when foe firs: can- 
didates submit GCSE certificates 
in 19SS. The southern group is 
embarking on an extensive pub- 
licity campaign to ensure that 
employers and parents have all foe 
information they need about the 
nature and purpose of GCSE 

Finally, and m view of recent 
concerns about declining stan- 
dards in education which have 
been expressed through your col- 
umns, I am anxious to stress that 
the purpose of the GCSE with its 
emphasis on positive achievement 
and the application of knowledge, 
is to raise foe level of achievement 
in youngsters of all abilities. 

I can g he an assurance that the 
fust cohort of pupils entering the 
new examinations in 19S8 wifi not 
under any circumstances be 
treated as guinea pigs.

Sir, We should all be grateful to 
the United States Government. 
But, before bombing, could not 
their aircraft have dropped mil- 
lions of leaflets on Tripoli and 
Benghazi telling foe Libyans why 
Gadaffi must go? Leaflets, suitably 
worded and illustrated, might 
have prompted those in Libya 
who want to get rid of Gadaffi to 
do so. 

In Malaya, millions of leaflets 
were dropped from planes and 
were effective in inducing dedi- 
cated communist terrorists to 
leave the jungle and surrender 
(and, in one case, to bring foe head 
of their decapitated commander 
with them).

-mission being required and the

The nearest kerb of foe new

away from Corner Farm than the 
farthest kerb of foe former access

vehicle vibration from foe new

less than that emanating from foe

From Sir \nrntan Price 
Sir. The members of foe working 
pany set up by Macro (National 
Association for foe Care and 
Resettlement of Offenders) to 
examine the law and practice 
governing enforcement in foe 
social security field are concerned 
about a number of features of foe 
Social Security Bill now before 
Parliament. Two seem to us to be 
particularly important. 

Clause 45 of the Bill makes even 
more confused than at present the 
situation under which proceedings 
are taken for social security of- 
fences. Case law interpreting the 
Social Security Act 1975 makes it 
apparent th 2 t. for the range of 
benefits covered by that Acl il is 
not necessary for the prosecution 
to show that a false statement was 
made with the intention of obtain- 
ing benefit or that there was any 
intention to defraud. 

The effect of clause 45 appears 
to be that social security offences 
are 10 be treated differently from, 
and more harshly than.’ other 
types of offence. The clause bor- 
rows from section 1 5 of the Theft 
Act (under which, incidentally, the 
more serious social security of- 
fences are prosecuted) the concept 
that an incorrect statement may be 
“recklessly" made, the fust time 
that this condition is introduced 
into social security legists iron. 
However, unlike the Theft Act 
clause 45 contains no requirement 
that there should have been a 
dishonest intent. 

The second area which worries 
the working party is the proposed 
legislation governing recovery of 
over-paid benefit. The present law 
is confused on this matter and 
different rules apply to the various 
benefits. Clause 43 of the Bill 
commendably tries to standardise 
foe procedure but does so in a way 
which is unfortunate. 

The test of failure to use due 
care and diligence, now used in 
relation to many benefits, is to be 
abandoned in favour of foe less 
satisfactory test of misrepresenta- 
tion or failure to disclose, and 
standard housing benefit is to 
remain recoverable whatever the 
reason for its over-payment, 
including official error. 

We hope that these issues will be 
carefully scrutinised and foe Bill 
will be' amended on its passage 
through Parliament. 

Yours faithfully.

Faith and schooling 


From Mr Usuf Islam 
Sir. As a body of men and women 
whose primary concern at foe 
moment is the campaign for 
obtaining voluntary aided status 
for the Islamic school referred to 
in your leader of April 1 5, "Law, 
faith and schooling", we fail to see 
w hy this modest project should be 
bracketed with such issues as 
divorce laws, women’s rights and 
instances of juvenile marriage. 

As British citizens and tax- 
payers we see ourselves merely 
exercising our right to educate our 
children in the manner we per- 
ceive to be the best possible. This 
is a right which has not been 
disputed with respect to foe 
Jewish community in Britain and 
it is only just that ihe same should 
apply to Muslims. 

We take exception to foe sugges- 
tion that our actions are detri- 
men lal to Ihe public interest. The 
authoritarian tone of your leader 
is not in keeping with what are foe 
best of British values — tolerance, 
a sense of fair play and respect of 
individual rights.

From Mr J. D. Usher 
Sir, Mr Butterfield (April 15) is 
correct in saying that the London 
10 Gatwick Airport fere is set at a 
level which reflects the improved 
service on the rail-air link. 

However, he is not correct in 
suggesting that a passenger can 
travel on a cheaper priced ticket 
and use foe break-of-joumey facil- 
ity. Our conditions of carriage 
show that a break of journey 
cannot be made at a station to 
which foe fare is higher than that 
actually paid.

indeed, in granting planning per-

[JESSE JAMES SHOT 
DEAD] 

PHILADELPHIA, APRIL 6. 

The shinning of -Jesse James, the 
outlaw and train rubber, at St. 
'u.^eph. Missouri, April 3, has 
a great sensation through- 
out the western country. James 
had for a long time had large 
rewards set upon his head, but had 
paid liilie attention to this, and 
had lived in hiding at St. Joseph 
since November last. Instead of 
going to Texas, as was his custom 
when hunted down heretofore, he 
h.-d for a good while remained in 
Miss-juri, but kept generally out of 
sight, and was well armed to guard 
against surprise. He was, it is said, 
planning a new robbery, with the 
aid oi two men. Robert and Charles 
Ford. They, it appears, had been 
engaged in roboeries with him 
before, but having made an ar- 
range mem with the governor of 
Missouri to get port of ihe rewards 
offered for James's capture or 
death, they were engaged at this 
time, according to their claim, only 
in a bit of detective work. The 
Express and railway companies 
and State and local Governments 
had offered rewards aggregating a 
large sum, so that the inducement 
for their action was strong. They 
had lived in the same house with 
■James for some time, and at S 
o'clock in the morning on April 3 
the three were together in a front 
mom. Unconscious of danger. 
■James, who had just got out of bed, 
unbuckled his belt, which con- 
tained his pistols, and threw it on 
the bed preparatory to washing 
himself. He was then unarmed, 
when Robert Ford suddenly pulled 
out a revolver and shot him quickly 
in the back of the bead. He died 
almost instantly. His wife rushed 
screaming into the room and flung 
herself upon the prostrate body. 
The Fords pave themselves up to 
the police; the town was in a flame 
of excitement; and hundreds recog- 
nized the corpse of the great 
bandit, who had been so often 
reported killed, yet re-appeared. 
The murderer Ford is a young man 
aged 22, of so slight and boyjfh 
appearance as hardly to be sup- 
posed daring enough for such a 
deed The murder was cowardly, 
and is so generally characterized, 
but it rids the frontier of its 
greatest outlaw. 

The “James boys" have for years 
been the leaders of daring bands of 
robbers, most of their gangs, 
however, being now dead or in 
prison. Frank James is still at 
large. They were audacious and 
most cruel villains, and the sons of 
a Baptist minister. They were born 
in Clay County, Missouri. Frank in 
1841 and Jesse in 1845, the 
younger being the more daring. 
Their mother is still living arid 
appeared at the coroner’s inquest, 
for she was proud of her outlaw 
sons. The atrocities of the civil war 
in Missouri made them bandits, for 
Frank joined QuantreU's band of 
guerillas in 1861, and Jesse being 
threatened with hanging by foe 
Federal troops in 1862 was soon 
afterwards taken into the band, 
though but 17 years old. 
QuantreU's band numbered 200, 
and committed -all sorts of atroc- 
ities. They sacked and burnt 
Lawrence, Kansas, murdering 
nearly every male inhabitant, Jesse 
in this raid boasting that he had 
shot down 36 persons. In Septem- 
ber, 1864, the James brothers with 
some others raided Centralia, Mis- 
souri, robbed rbe stores and then, 
capturing a railway train, stole the 
passengers’ money and valuables. 
This was an atrocious massacre, in 
which they butchered 32 sick 
soldiers who were in the train going 
to hospital at St. Louis. These poor 
wretches were marched out and 
ordered in line by Frank and Jesse 
James. Anderson, the chief of the 
bandit party, then shot and killed 
every one of them, either Frank or 
Jesse handing him freshly loaded 
pistols as fast as he emptied 
them — .

Dissatisfaction continues everywhere, 
over the styie of English used in formal 
public prayer. It has for years been the 
subject most commonly raised by church 
members in letters to this newspaper. 
Now the disgrnntiement in the Roman 
Catholic Church has led the Interna- 
tional Committee on English in the 
Liturgy Inc to begin a 10-year revision 
programme of the English language 
Mass, and an advisory committee of 
JCEL is meeting in London this week to 
plan the work- 

ICEL is one of the ‘‘big too" in this 
field, the other being the Intern ationa l 
Consultation on English Texts (ICET), 
which is ecnmenkaL Many of die most 
important texts are common to both - 
the English Roman Catholics and the 
Church of England use identical modern 
language versions of the Gloria and the 
Creed, for instance, though one 
att ribute s the source to ICEL, the other 
to ICET. In fact the style is ICEL, and 
the ‘“Inc'" rather gives the game away. It 
is not English English, but international 
Transatlantic English. It has been 
stripped of subjunctives, poetry and 
idiom, to make it acceptable everywhere. 

In the Anglica n Alt ernative Service 
Book the ICEL/ICET passages there- 
fore stand oat as starker than the rest, 
whereas in Che present En glish missal 
the style is at least consistent. The 
Catholic revision process has obvious 
implications for Anglicans and others, 
both becan se of the interdependence of 
ICEL and ICET and becanse the ASB is 
not doe for revision for several years yet, 
and will therefore be revised after the 
Catholic work is completed. Although 
the ASB language style does aim for 
rythm and poetry, it has been ranch 
criticized for banality, for incongruous 
archaism, and generally for being not 
very memorable. It is Engl ish E nglish, 
except where it draws on ICET, but it 
cannot be held op as an example of how 
to write successfully in this difficult 
medium. 

The English Catholic bisheps have 
declared their unhappiness with the 
present language of public worship, and 
questioned the present policy of a 
common English version throughout the 


English-speaking world. Language style 
should pay more attention to “the 
culture of the local church”, they have 
said- They are being prodded by the 
Association for English Worship to see 
that the interests of the English “local 
church” are better represented in ICEL, 
to which end the Association has just 
produced a portfolio of texts of its own, 
as possible examples worth following. 

It is not jnst a matter of taste - more a 
matter of ear. The ability to distinguish 
good English from just ordinary English 
is not universal, and many well-educated 
people do not have it. Bat good English 
also works snbliminalty. People kno w 
that what they are hearing is satisfying, 
without being able to say why. They are, 
however, quite able to persuade them- 
selves that what they are hearing is 
good, when it is not. 

These four versions of the opening of 
the proper preface, the first the Latin of 
which the other three are translations, 
illustrate how little great minds t hin k 
alike when writing liturgy. 

“Yere dignmn et justma est, aequum 
et salntare; nos did simper et nbiqne 
grades age re; Domiiw, sancte Fatin’, 
omni po tens aeteree Dens: per Christum 
TVvmTnnni nostrum”; (Latin missal) 

“ft is indeed right, it is oar duty and 
our joy, at all times and in all places, to 
give yon thanks and praise; holy Father, 
heavenly King, almighty and eternal 
God, through Jesus Christ your only 
Son our Lord”; (ASB) 

“Father, all powerful and ever-living 
God, we do well always and everywhere 
to give yon thanks, through Jesus Christ 
our Lord”} (English missal) 

“It is only right, and what Is doe, since 
yon created ami would save us, that we 
should give you thanks at all times and 
In all places, O Lord, Holy Father, 
almighty everlasting God. through 
Christ our Lord”; (Association for 
English Worship) 

The Church of England version comes 
closest to a literal translation (incurring 
difficulties thereby) which is surprising 
as Anglicans are i"nri» Jess likely than 
Catholics to worry about departures 
from the Latin. All three English 


versions avoid “to thank you”, prefer- 
ring “give yon thanks". Two choose the. 
more awkward “at all times and inafl 
places” instead of the smoother “always 
and everywhere” The ASB begins 
twice, and stops and starts; the missal 
loses through terseness and hesitates at 
“we do well”; the association's shot is 
too dose to casual speech with “it is only 
right” while “would save ns” is a 
change of tense that does not work. This 
is probably the least successful of the 
association's prayers, and roost of them 
are of better quality than the other two 
sets. Characteristically, the ASB is too 
hidebound, the English missal too free. 
Somewhere in the direction in which the 
Association for En gl is h Worship is 
beading may lie the answer, hot too 
many of their examples still contain 
stylistic stumbles of the “would save ns” 
variety. 

Whaf their examples demonstrate, 
however, is that an atcompromlringly 
modern En glis h style can possess rythm 
and dignity, and ft is not necessary to in- 
troduce, as the ASB does, deliberate 
echoes of sixteenth century E ng li s h to 
give toe language a “churchy” , effect. 
“We may so pass through things 
tem poral that we finally lose not the 
things eternal-.” (ASB) is a typical 
example. The association's version is 
in mri n g the good things of this 
pairing world, we may yet hold fast to 
things eternal.” It sounds that little bit 
less like a Hollywood script-writer’s 
pastiche of the Authorized Version. 

But the present English Mass has: 
“Guide us to everlasting life by helping 
ns to use wisely the blessings you have 
given to the world.” It is too plain by 
Half; and ft ignores the other texts’ 
echorag phrases and c on tr as ti ng ideas. 
The total quantity of imaginative stimu- 
lus in the passage is therefore far less. 
This impoverishment was the greatest 
penalty inflicted by ICEL when it 
originally chose to ent a ample path 
rfimngfi complex language. It should 
take 10 years to put the damage right.

OBITUARY 

MR DUNCAN FAIRN 
Penologist who pioneered 
jail hostel system 


Mr Duncan Fiairn. Assistant 


Under-Secretary of Stale at 
the Home Office from 1964- 
67, who built np an interna- 
tional reputation a 
penologist, died on April 12, 
aged 79. 

He broke new ground by 
being the first man to move 
from work inside prisons - te 
was deputy governor of both 
Manche ster . and Wakefield 
prisons - to the administrative 
rank of under-secretary. 

■ When Fhirn was Chief Di- 
rector of the Prison Depart- 
ment in 2964, lie was ordered 
by Henry Brooke, who was 
then Home Secretary, to lead 
an inquiry into the dramatic 
escape from prison of Charts 
Wilson, serving 30 years for 
the Great Train Robbery. 

Faint's progre ss ive and en- 
lightened views on prisons, 
which were partly inspir ed by 
a strong Quaker faith, were . 
not always popular with other 
penologists, but all respected 
his immense experience. 

Richard Duncan Faim yas 
bom on June 1, 1906, and 
educated at Battersea County 
School and the London 
School of Economics. Having 
spent four years as a voluntary 
prison teacher and visitor, he 
joined the Prison Service in 
1938 as Deputy Governor of 
Manchester Prison and the 
following year transferred to a 
similar appointment at Wake- 
field. In 1942 he was posted as 
Governor of Rochester Bor- 
stal wh ere he remained for 
three years. 

He was the first prmiepa] of 
the Prison Service Staff Col- 
lege at Wakefield from 1946- 
4S and became successively 
Assistant Commissioner of 
Prisons, a Commissioner of 
Prisons, Director of Prison 
Administration arid Chief Di- 


rector of the Prison Depart- 
ment at the Home Office. 

Faint played a leading part 
in the creation of tiw prison 
hostel system, allowing in- 
mates nearing the end ol long 
sentences to go out to an 
ordinary job during the dajftr 
but returning to the prison at 
night- 

His vests of experience 
made 1 tiro much in demand 
and he visited many countries 
advising on prison adminis- 
tration. He was chairman of 
the committee investigating 
the deaths of inmates at the 
Hda emergency detention 
camp in Ken vain 1959, and m 
die 1960s he led inquires into 
the death ofDr Robert So Wen, 
a psychologist convicted in 
America of spying for tire 
Russians who committed sui- 
cide while being taken from 
Brixton Prison to Heathrow 


airport to be deported, andfe. 
into the escape of Wilson, the 


into the escape of Wilson, the 
train robber, from Winson 
Green Prison in Birmingham. 

His thoroughness was such 
that he questioned every 
warder about how Wilson 
could, have obtained the keys 
to two high-security locks and 
then simply leave without 
being seen by any of the 


Faim was a thoughtful writ- 


er an<L had two books pub- 
lished: Quakerism, a Faith for 
Ordinary Men ( j 951) and The 
Disinherited Prisoner (1962). 

He once offered a conference 
in Scarborough a . splendid 0 
definition of an intelligent 
man: someone able xo follow a 
Church of England service 
from the prayer book, travel 
across Britain relying only on 
a Bradshaw guidebook, and 
undress discreetly on the 
beach. 


PROF BEATRICE WHITE 


Mr A.C. Sinclair 
and Mrs AJ. Barker 
The marriage took place quietly 
on Thursday, April 17. in An- 
dover. Hampshire, between Mr 
Alisiair Sinclair, of Church 
Farm House. Longparish. An- 
dover. and Mrs Alexandra 
Barker, of Draycott Avenue, 
London, SW3. A service of 
blessing and dedication was 
held afterwards at St Nicholas' 
Church. Longparish 


Professor Beatrice White, a 
former Vice-Principal of 
Westfield College, London 
University, and an authority 
on Chaucer. Shakespeare and 
Mary Tudor, has died. 

There are two spheres in 
particular in which roe will be 
remembered: her iife at West- 
field College, where she spent 
the last 30 years of her 
academic career, and he r w o r k 
with the English Association, 
to which, for several decades, 
she gave her active and devot- 
ed service. 

She was successively lectur- 
er, reader, professor of English 
lan g ua g e and literature and 
professor emeritus at London - 
University. 

In the Engfish. Association. 
White was a member of the 
executive and publications 
committees, co-editor and edi- 
tor for 10 years of The Year's 
Work in English Studies, tire 
collector of two volumes and 
contributor to four volumes of 


Essays and Studies g*«d a 
trusieeibr many years. 

In 1933 The Vulgaria cf 
John. Sraabridge and The 
Vulgariaof Robert WhiUinton 
were punished, .edited by 
White with the same scholarly 
care as die had bestowed a few 
years earlier on Barclay’s Ec- 
logues. The Vuigaria are two 0 
of be n umerous school books 
which led up to Lily’s famous 
Latin grammar, itself more 
widely known in the forra-of 
the Eton Latin Grammar. 


White's Mary Tudor, pub- 


lished in 1935. aims at pre- 
senting the tragedy of Mvy 
Tudor in its true perspective 
of her being faithful to out- 
moded loyalties. The sympa- 
thy u forthe queen, not for tire 
cause. ■ 


She was ; a Fellow of the 
Royal Society of Literature, of 
the Royal Historical Society, 
and of (he Society of Anti- 
quaries. 


THE HON LADY BETJEMAN 


JN writes: 


Penelope Begemas was one 
of those rare and memorable 
individuals whose absolute 
joy of living never failed to 
inspire everyone she met. 

Her affection for people, 
horses, an, architecture and 
especially the continent of 
India and its mountains - 
where so aptly for her, but so 
sadly for us, she so suddenly 
died - cannot be exaggerated. 

La a long and exceptionally 
generous life, one devoted to 
her family, she was valued by 
countless friends. . 


It was in later years that 
India became her consuming 
passion. Whether it was tour- 
ing with her adored grandchil- 
dren or friends and instilfing 
in them a fascination for its 
culture, trekking extensively 
in remote areas of the Himala- 
yas, recording the unknown 


and splendid wooden pagoda it. 
temples there or talcing tours, 
her wealth of knowledge and 
wisdom was amazing in its 
diversity and delightful in its 
freshness. Her tremendous 
sense of hum our was never far 
from the surface. 

It wjQ not be easy to forget 
such occasions as mien, with 
almost schoolgirl excitement 
on finding, a particularly ob- 
scure but spendid south Indi- 
an temple in the ruined dty of 
Viyayangar. complete with 
lily-covered pool and spectac- 
ular life-sized granite horse 
pillars, she .rolled out her 
sleeping bag to rest between 
the great beasts and under the 

glittering stars. 

This marvellous, coma- $ 
geous and joyful explorer of 
-life can never be replaced, 
only remembered with love 
and thanksgiving by all who 
knew her.

Chilling 
evidence 
of state 
violence 


A South African undertaker 
buried 34 children in a five-' 
month period last year, all of 
them victims of state violence. 
In Wimas to Apartheid 
(Channel 4) lus recorded voice 
was heard as be went through 
his records describing the 
multiple wounds from whips 
and gnus which had ended the 
chtidreu's fives. The undertak- 
er himself did not appear on 
the film because, as the com- 
mentary pTrphrinfd, he was 
detained by the police before 
he could speak to the camera. 

The film was a chilling 
catalogue of brutality and 
despair. There was visual 
evidence of attacks on schools, 
arrests of children as young as 
seven years old and 
leaving massive scars on 
adults and teenagers. One 
iatentafianal authority esti- 
mated that 83 per emit of 
people detained by the police 
hi Sooth- Africa are physically 
abused. 

Many of the young black 
leaders explained that the 
rising generation in the town- 
ship is resigned to dying in the 
cause of freedom; a white 
woman, who supported apart- 
heid, agreed with this pretfic- 
tion and suggested that a 
massacre on the scale of 
Sharpevffie was the only way 
to preserve the security of ber 
race - and an acceptable way 
of doing so/ 

The producer and director of 
this film was Sharon Sopher, a 
former NBC journalist who 
was persuaded to make the 
programme by one of its chief 
subjects. Bishop Desmond 
Tutu. Their concern was 
raised by the fact that, despite 
the presence of 200 journalists 
in South Africa, material of 
this kind rarely escapes state 
control. The media are re- 
stricted by violent intimida- 
tion. At the conclusion of die 
programme, Sopher recon- 
structed her own arrest and 
detention during filming , and 
used a montage of other 
camera ertws under attack 
with whips and tear gas by. 
Sooth African police. . ; 

Helmut (BBC2> is a German . 
serial which also explored die 
quality of inhumanity, hot in a 
persuasively lyrical style. The 
series is a portrait of life in a 
small German village from 
1919 until the present, and » 
to be screened consecutively 
over 11 evenings. . This estab- 
lishing episode outlined the 
foundations of the drama, 
sketching with subtlety a 
small-minded, xenophobic 
community entertaining itself 
with prednpee. Bdmat has 
been touted as proof that the 
soap open fonn can accommo- 
date serious content, bat its 
structure is tar more cinematic 
than televisual, and -it prom- 
ises to be an exquisite 16-hoar 
art movie. 

Credo (Channel 4) retained 
for a new series with a 
thorough examination of the 
confrontation between femi- 
nism and Christianity hi Brit- 
ain, a Birmingham ricar 
declared than an egalitarian 
society was a Godless society; 
more sophisticated theolo- 
gians pointed out that die 
concept of women's eqnaUty 
laid an axe at the root of 
Christian doctrine. Not sur- 
prisingly, several groups of 
thinking female. Christians 
were looking for solutions 
outside the established church 
structures.

Wby do people go to the cinema? 
What takes them into a darkened 
room where, for two hours, they 
waidb the . play of shadows on a 
sheet? The search for entertain- 
ment? The need for a kind of drug? 
All over the world there are, indeed, 
entertainment firms and organ- 
isations which exploit cinema and 
television and spectacles of many 
other kinds. Our starting-point, 
however, should not be there, but m 
the essential principles of cinema, 
which have to do with the human 
need to master and know the world. 
1 think that what a person normally 
goes to the cinema for is time: for 
time lost or spent or not yet had. He 
goes there for living experience; for 
cinema, like no other art, widens, 
enhances and concentrates a 
person's experience — and not only 
enhances it but makes it longer, 
significantly longer. That is the 
power of cinema: “stars” story- 
lines and entertainment have noth- 
ing to do with it. . 

What, is the essence of the 
author’s work? We could define it as 
sculpting in time. Just as a sculptor 
takes a lump of marble, . and, 
inwardly conscious of the features 
of his finished - piece, removes 
everything that is not part of it — so 


the film-maker, from a “lump of 
time” made up of an enormous, 
solid cluster of living facts, cuts off 
and discards whatever he does not 
need, leaving only what is to be an 
element of the finished film, what 
wifi prove to be integral to the 
cinematic image. 

Cinema is said to be a composite 
art. based on the involvement of a 
number of neighbour art-forms: 
drama, prose, acting, painting, mu- 
sic ... In fact the “involvement” of 
these art-forms can, as it turns out, 
impinge so heavily on cinema as to 
reduce it to a kind of mishmash, or 
— at best — to a mere semblance of 
harmony in which the heart of 
cinema is not to be found, because it 
is precisely in those conditions that 
it ceases to exist. It has to be made 
clear once and for all that if cinema 
is an an it cannot simply be an 
. amalgam of the principles of other, 
contiguous art-forms: only having 
done that can we turn to the 
question of the allegedly composite 
nature of film. A meld of literary 
thought and painterly form will not 
be a cinematic image: it can only 
produce a more or less empty or 
pretentious hybrid. 

Nor must the laws of movement 
and the organisation of time in a 


film be replaced by the time-laws of 
theatre. 


Time in the form of fact again 1 
come back to it. I see chronicle as 
the ultimate cinema; for me it is not 
a way of filming but a way of 
reconstructing, of re-creating life. 

I once taped a casual dialogue. 
People were talking without know- 
ing they were being recorded. Then I 
listened to the tape and thought bow 
brilliantly it was “written" and 
“acted”. The logic of the characters' 
movements, the feeling, the energy 
- how tangible it all was. How 
euphonic the voices were, how 
beautiful the pauses? ... No 
Stanislavsky could have found justi- 
fication for those pauses, and 
Hemingway’s stylistics seem preten- 
tious and naive in comparison with 
the way that casually recorded 
dialogue was constructed . . . 

This is how I conceive an ideal 
piece of filming: the author takes 
millions of metres of film, on which 
systematically, second by second, 
day by day and year by year, a man's 
life, for instance, from birth to 
death, is followed and recorded, and 
out of all that comes two and a half 
thousand metres, or an hour and a 
half of screen time. (It is curious 


also to imagine those millions of 
metres going through the hands of 
several directors for each to 
his film — how different thev would 
all be!) 

And even though it would not be 
possible to have those millions of 
metres, the ’’ideal” conditions of 
work are not as unreal as ail that, 
and they should be what we aspire 
to. In what sense? The point is to 
pick out and join together the bits of 
sequential fact, knowing, seeing and 
hearing precisely wh 2 i lies between 
them and what kind of c hain holds 
them together. That is cinema. 
Otherwise we can easily slip on to 
the accustomed path of theatrical 
playwriting, building a plot-struc- 
ture based on given characters. The 
cinema has to be free to pick out and 
join up facts taken from a “lump of 
time" of any width or length. Nor 
do 1 think that it's necessary to 
follow one particular person. On the 
screen the logic of a person's 
behaviour can transfer into the 
rationale of quite different — appar- 
ently irrelevant — frets and phe- 
nomena, and the person you started 
with can vanish from the screen, 
replaced by’ something quite differ- 
ent, if that is what is required by the 
author's guiding principle. For in- 


stance it is possible to make a film 
in which there is no one hero 
character figuring throughout the 
film, but where everything is de- 
fined by the particular foreshorten- 
ing effect of one person's view of 
life. 


Cinema is capable of operating 
with any fact diffused in time; it can 
lake absolutely anything from life. 
What for literature would be an 
occasional possibility, an isolated 
case (for instance the interpolation 
of “documentary material” in 
Hemingway's book of shon stories. 
In Our Time) is for cinema the 
working of its fundamental artistic 
laws. Absolutely anything! Applied 
to the fabric of a play or a novel that 
“absolutely anything” could appear 
limitless; it is most limited for a 
film. 


Juxtaposing a person with an 
environment that is boundless, 
collating him with a countless 
number of people passing by close 
to him and far away, relating a 
person to the whole world: that is 
the meaning of cinema.

It is a thin story, its main 
purpose befog to provide a 
vehicle for biting political 
satire. But here, despite a witty 
and caustic script (for South 
Sea Bubble read British 
Telecom shares), it does not 
hold together. Without tbs 
back-up of suggested opera 
parody, the narrative, stret- 
ched very thinly here, feels too 
spurious to support the satiri- 
cal material A feeling of 
unease infects the production, 
which never seems to be quite 
sure on what level of parody 
or reality to operate. It stops 
and starts in an uncomfort- 
able, uncertain way which 
only really loosens up during 
the songs. 

Here David McNiven’s 
huge talent for pastiche wryly 
mat che s every song to its 
subject — an a capella song for 
the macho drinking boys, a 
country-aDd- western sheriff's 
song for the chief inspector, 
semi-serious sentimentality 
for Polly’s song (beautifully 
delivered by Maggie RydeT) 
and even a pastiche Weill 
“with a Brechrian teat”. Here 
the musical talent of the cast is 
undoubted, displayed in both 
their versatility and the brash 
vitality which they bring to the 
music, that somehow is dissi- 
pated in between musical 
interludes. 


whether this is conscious 
choice on her pan, or whether 
it indicates a lack of options. It 
may simply have been a 
strange acoustical conse- 
quence of taking the lid off the 
piano, as you usually have to 
do when conducting from the 


keyboard. But 1 am not sure 
that such monochrome 
melowness is quite right in 
K503, in which the sunlight 
shined more brightly than in 
any other Mozart concerto 
(except perhaps K467, also in 
O; much of the passagework 
did not sparkle as it should. 

That said. Miss Uchida's 
over-view of this effortlessly , 
brilliant work was impressive: 1 
grand and spacious in the 
opening paragraphs, rythm- 
ically alive at all points, and 
with an agreeably idiomatic 
cadenza (her own?) in the first 
movement - big, but then this 
is a big concerto. The F major 
Concerto, K413, in the first 
half of the concert suited Miss 
Uchida's style even better. She 
brought a wonderfully unaf- 
fected touch to its enchanting 
little Larghetto, finding a tem- 
po which allowed the curious 2 
ly constructed phrases of the 
opening tune to drop into each 
other quite naturally, deliver- 
ing its later exquisite orna- 
mentation with a lovely 
straightforwardness (letting 
Mozart do the talking), and 
securing some telling, orches- 
tral support, especially from 
the woodwind. 

Earlier, the leader Jose-Luis 
Garcia had directed the or- 
chestra in Handel’s Concerto 
Grosso in B flat. Op 3 No 2 — a 
likeable prelude to what was 
to follow, with Neil Black 
making much of the long- 
breathed oboe phrases in its 
Largo second movement. 

Malcolm Hayes 


Nonhcott’s 10-minute piece 
hardly a word emerges clearly 
from the complex choral tex- 
tures. despite the best 
endeavours of the BBC Sing- 
ers, giving an assured first 
performance under John 
Midis's direction. In particu- 
lar. the three soloists had to 
work hard to be heard at all, 
and this seriously undermined 
the dramatic impact. 

That said, the work im- 
pressed with its luxurious 
harmonic palette, its careful 
variation in choral register, its 
discreet use of percussion 
(mainly vibraphone) and dou- 
ble bass, and above all its 
passionate sweep from its 
opening siren-calls to a tense 
conclusion. 

Minnesang by the Portu- 


century German religious 
verse, but in a far more 
distorted way. Its first 10 
minutes were occupied by a 
major-third interval, held in 
some of the 12 unaccompa- 
nied voices against an increas- 
ingly intrusive background <of 
quasi-speech. Then this hyp- 
notic texture snapped, the 
choral techniques became 
darker, more declamatory’ and 
varied, and occasionally an 
eerie ecclesiastical tone per- 
vaded the harmonies. 

The texts hinted enigmati- 
cally at a metaphysical change 
possible by meditation; in this 
radiantly confident British 
premiere the music did not fall 
too short of evoking this 
worthy eternal goal. 

Richard Morrison 


energy, or simply lost enthusi- 
asm for holding the tide of 
biggest and fastest gun in 
town, remains a matter of 
conjecture, but his show at the 
newly tarted-up Dingwalls 
was so restrained as to be 
\crgjng on the timid. 

While the occasional flour- 
ish and one or two solos 
showed his sureness of touch, 
speed of reflex and ambidex- 
trous abilities to be largely 
undimin.shed. ihe material 
played boreal! the qualities of 
easv listening jazz-rock of a 
particularly anodyne nature. 
Although Gerry Elkins's syn- 
thesizer solos and Dean 
Brown's guitar forays were 
accompanied by much slack- 
jawed grimacing and shaking 
of the head, their contribu- 
tions were like treacle splash - 
ing on a lightly baked sponge. 
The studious-looking Cob- 
ham. supported by' Baron 
Browne on bass and Sa Davis 
on percussion, kept to an 
amiable, relaxed groove, often 
with a massive Latin under- 
current 

The superlative standard of 
the playing ensured that the 
experience was by no means 
unpleasant but the approach 
seemed curiously spineless. 
“Light Shines In Your Eyes” 
could scarcely be heard above 
the chattering of the crowd, 
while a brief retrospective 
section included arrange^ 
ments of "Stratus" and “Red 
Baron” that were travesties of 
the originals. 

The market for supper-club 
fusion is a bard one to locate, 
and. while the crowd at Ding- 
walls gave him a good recep- 
tion. Cobham may have to 
look elsewhere for the new 
“audiophile” audience that he 
now appears to be seeking.

Sadness as Britons pull out of west Beirut 


Beirut (AP) - Britain evacu- 
ated most of its remaining 
nationals from Muslim west 
Beirut yesterday, after the 
killing of two kidnapped Brit- 
ons and one American by 
terrorists seeking to avenge 
the US attack on Libya. 

The British Ambassador. 
Mr John Gray, said that 32 
Britons, one American, one 
Irishman and one New Zea- 
lander were evacuated to 
Christian east Beirut. 

He would not give the names 
of any of the evacuees. He said 
a few Britons remained in 
kidnap-plagned west Beirut, 
but weald not give their num- 
ber or names. 

The evacuees were driven in 
two police buses and four cars 
across Beirut's dividing Green 
Line into the Christian sector 
of the Lebanese capital at first 
light. Jeep-loads of Drnze and

BA agency 
bombed in 
Peshawar 

Peshawar (Reuter) — A 
bomb here yesterday badly 
damaged a British Airways 
ticket agent's office, injuring 
one man, but Pakistani police 
said that a man seen taking a 
bag into the building and then 
running away without it two 
minutes before the blast had 
been arrested. 

Police said the office was I 
empty at the time but refused | 
to give further information. 
Originally police and witness- j 
es had identified the office as 
the Aviona travel agency. 

Witnesses said the suspect 
appeared to be an Afghan and 
was caught by passers-by in 
the busy Saddar bazaar where 
the office is located. 

Four people died in January 
when a bomb shattered the 
office of Pakistan Internation- 
al Airlines a few Mocks from 
yesterday's blast

The imm ediate effects of the 
air raid are still being felt in 
tiie Libyan capital 'where two 
more crritians died of their 
usuries on Saturday night, 
bringing the official death toll 
of civilians to 39. Doctors at 
the Central Hospital in Tripoli 
yesterday said three more 
people, including a chSd suf- 
fering from bond) pressure 
damage to the head, were 
likely to die. 

On Saturday a young man 
was brought to the hospital 
after losing part of an arm and 
most of his other hand after

mtexploded bomb fay children. 

Libyan officials have al- 
ready shows journalists two 
unexploded American 5001b 
bombs that feO near the 
airport on Tuesday morning. 


As welt as a tow of 
fbotbalL another thing the 
Russians and English have in 
common is an a biding - pas- 
sion for discussing the 
weather. , 

At no time is that more 
a p parent among Muscovites 
t haw during lire spring, when 
popular wisdom has it that 
the capital is often capable of 
experiencing tba weather of 
all four seasons within. the 
span of a single day. 

This year the weather bom 

have had a field day beca use 
of the earty thaw and its 
accompanying eddies of 
muddy water; swirling oflai 
ankle -high through the streets 
and forming treacherous 
pools in the pot-holed side 
streets of the city. 

The final removal of the 
filthy pack toe which has lain 


is effected by bands of writ- 
ers (many of them women) 
who chip away at it with a 
remarkable array of antitjuai- - 
ed-tooking tools. 

The 1 apgw^ e is rich with 
folk-sayings which illustrate 
the central point that the 
beady relief of a few days of 
warm sunshine should not he 
equated with the final depar- 
ture of winter. One says that 
“when March comes, you 
must don seven pairs of 
trousers" and another wains 
that "one swallow does not 
make a spring". 

But wading through the 
slu rigg and avoiding the occa- 
sional football-sized loom of 
ice dangerously dislodged 
from the roofs of the tall 
apartment blocks near The 
Times' office, 1 was recently 
informed by our courtyard 
sweeper (usually an impecca- 
ble source on these vital, 
matters) that the last of the 
winter snow had passed, and 
I could put away my for hat 
for another year. 

Most, but notaB, of the city 
dwellers have come to die 
same conclusion, and for the 
first time since my arrival last 
November, it is possible to 
walk in the streets hatiess 
without earning a severe 
dressing-down from a ba- 
bushka, the elderiy women 
who regard it as their dmy to 
instruct one and all on the 


unwritten sartorial ndo of 
the Soviet Union. 

Although often timely, 
their advice — especially eon- 1 
earning the need to add 
another layer of clothing to 
3 D already near-stifling chikl 
— is one Ot the more irritating 
aspects of Soviet life. 

As one long-time Western! 
resident explained; "They get 
so used to the state telling 
them what to do that they 
apparently fori obliged to 
adopt the same^ hectoring 
attitude so others." 

The Muscovites have long 
ago learnt how eo adapt to the 
vagaries of their climate and 
sensibly wear waterproof 
boots on their way .to and 
from work, changing into 
indoor shoes at either end. A 
similar practice is followed 
when visiting friends, and 

.L. n^nil !amI Anri 


foreign residents think noth- 
ing of departing for a chic 
social engagement clutching a 
pair of shoes in a plastic Tsag, 
In a country where every* 
thing Western has a special 
cachet for beyond its original 
standing in the West, the 
plastic tag is a notable casein 
point. As bemused first-time 
visitors from the other side of 
the Iron Curtain quickly dis- 
cover, a Marks & Spencer or 
Hanods bag is a coveted 
possession for a Moscow 1 
housewife, both fof .snob 
appeal and for. practical rea- ; 
sons: in most stores in the 
capital (apart from Beripzhld, 
special shops for bard-curren- . 
cv-paying foreigners), no bags 
of any sort are available. 

The definitive end of win- 
ter win be signalled at the end 
of month when the 
colourful funfair* in Gorky 
Park will open , for business, 
Bui the advent of the short, 
sharp Moscow summer will 
not be without its drawbacks. 
As residents are quick to 
warn newcomers, all -hot 
water wifi be switched off as 
boilers are given their annual 
repair and bay fever sufferers 
mil brace themselves for the 


nitons whtafltiffwtiicb floats 
douna from, the fens of thou- 
sand; of poplars planted on 
Stalin's orders.

Nature notes 


The main influx of willow 
warbles into Britain is under- 
way. and many have been seen 
in London and other cities. On 
passage, they sing quietly to 
themselves - they are not yet 
ready to announce with loud 
song that they are owners of a 
territory. Just now. they are 
often found feeding in willows, 
where there are plenty of small 
insects among the opening 
leaves: but most of them will 
nest in bitch woods. 

The last redwings are leaving 
for Scandinavia - but for fewer 
will return than came here in the 
autumn, for they were badly hit 
by the February cold. There are 
also very few goldfinches about 
titter they, too, suffered serious 
losses, or an unusual number 
emigrated and have not yet 
come bade. Sheld-duck, which 
look more like small geese, are 
moving to the sandy coasts 
where they breed, and odd pairs 
are sopping en route at many in 
land ponds. Reed-buntings are 
singing in the osiers, lifting their 
black bead-feathers and puffing 
up their white collars. 

Primroses and dandelions are 
in flower. Large red catkins are 
breaking out of golden buds on 
the black Italian poplars, and 
some small sycamores have 
their leaves folly open. DJM

Base rates could fall again 
despite oil price fears 


The pressure will be on for 
another cut in base rates Ais 
week, desphe the prospect of 
renewed oil price weakness 
:and official caution from the 
Bank of England. 

Even before the announce- 
ment. of half-point discount 
rate Cuts in Ae United ffrafg 
and Japan over Ae weekend, 
money market rates in Lon- 
don were consistent with a 
base cate of 10 par cent Base 
rates were cm from 11 percent 
to KX5 per cent on Friday. - 

The reduction m the US 
discount rate from 7 per cent 
to 6.5 per cent and the - 
Japanese discount rate from 4 
per cent to 3:5 per cent 1ms 
opened the way for a further 
early drop in British base 
rates, which are high by 
international standards. 

The Japanese discount rate 
cut, Ae mird Ais year, could 
be followed by another next 
month. Mr Satoshi Sumita, 
the Governor of the Bank of 
Japan, Ad not rule out a 
further cut, and Mr Hidemhsu 
Yamaguchi, a vice-minister at 
the Ministry of Finance, pre- 

Hirlfvt SI npHlirfiftn OVin oftor

month.

war low of 1978/79.

diets a cm in rates to 9 percent 
by Ae summer. However. Ais 
will not occur if Ac pound 
shows signs of weakness 
against the European curren- 
cies. Ae report says. 

This could arise from re- 
newed oil price weakness, 
with some experts predicting 
an early drop in spot prices 
below SlQ a barrel, because of 
Ae failure of Ae Organization 
of Petroleum Exporting Coun- 
tries. meeting in. Geneva, to 
agree on production limits. 

However, the pound has 
shown more resistance to oil 
price weakness in recent 
weeks. Opee ministers will 
reconvene their meeting to- 
day, after a brief session 
yesterday. 

Far the past week the 13 


Opec oil ministers have been 
in Geneva attempting to agree 
tm a formula ■ which would 
restore the present supply- 
demand imbalance in Ae 
world oil market. 

White most accept that a 
sharp cut in output later this 
year is vital, only Iran. Algeria 
and Libya are prepared to 
back a new limit of 14 million 
barrels a day compared wiA 
the previously agreed total 
output quota of 16.5 million. 

Sheikh Ahmed Zaki Yama- 
ni, the Saudi oil minister, said 
yesterday: “We are making 
progress but we have a long 
way to go". 

His closest ally in Ae cam- 
paign to keep pressure off 
prices to force co-operation 
from non-Opec producers. 


Sheikh Ali Khalifa, Ae Ku- 
waiti oil minister, said 
yesierd3y:‘i have no com- 
ment to make until after we 
have reached an agreement". 

However it is increasingly 
unlikely that Ae Geneva 
meeting will end wiA any- 
thing other than an agreement 
to continue investigating 
problems lacing the cartel and 
to come up wiA a series of 
resolutions that can stand a 
chance of unanimous accep- 
tance at Ae next scheduled 
ministerial meeting in Brioni 
in Yugoslavia in Juoe. 

The prospect of renewed oil 
price weakness will help infla- 
tion prospects, already im- 
proved in Britain by Ae 
promise of mortgage rate cuts.

Euro-dear, the securities 
clearing house.besed in Brus- 
sels, has given a fillip to the 
burgeoning market in Euro- 
equities by launching today a 
complete clearing system for 
internationally traded shares. 

Under Ae new Equities 
Service, fully automated set- 
tlement will be possible in any 
of Euro-deart 23 currencies. 
About 100 equities from Bel- 
gium, Germany, Ae Nether- 
lands, Sweden and 
Swhzeriatkl .are covered in Ae 
first phase of Ae scheme. 

British stocks have not been 
induded.m Ais first phase 
because of uncertainty about 
Ae proposed lak on American 
Depositary Receipts, Ae main 
form in which British equities 
are traded internationally. 


M. Benoit Dumont, a vice- 
president of Euro-dear, said 
the stocks had been chosen 
after taking market advice. 
“They are all big companies 
which are genuinely traded 
outside Aeir home market,” 
he said. The German stocks, 
for example, indude BMW, 
Bayer, and Commerzbank. 

The service will allow inves- 
tors to clear transactions ei- 
ther wiA counterparts in 
Euro-dear or in national sys- 
tems. Euro-dear also acts as a 
custodian of securities. The 
service will cover rights issues 
and depositary receipts,, and 
cater for Ae growing practice' 
of syndicating equities in Ae 
same manner as Eurobonds. 

Euro-dear already runs a 
limited equity service. 


Dixons challenged over 
offshoots’ accounts 


By Teresa Poole 


The £1.6 billion takeover 
battle- by Dixons for Wool- 
worth Holdings produced fur- 
ther acrimony yesterday wiA 
claims that Dixons has failed 
to file accounts at Companies 
House for 34 British subsid- 
iaries for Ae year ending 
April. 1985. 

WoolworA alleges that two 
of these, Currys Group pic and 
Dixons Finance pic, should 
. have filed by November 1985 
and the oAers, which are 
limited companies, should 
have filed by Febniaiy this 
year. ■ 

Mr Geoff Mulcahy, group 
, chief executive at WoOlworth. 
said: “The big question is why 
Aey decided not to file Aem.” 

In response to Woolworth’s 
solicitors, the Registrar of 
Companies said in a letter that 
Ae efom* were worrying and 
would be looked into. 

A spokesman for S.G War- 
burg, the merchant bank 
which acts for Dixons, was 
unable to confirm that Ae 
accounts bad not been filed 
but dismissed Ae issue as a 
technicality. He added: “It 
doesn't seem to me that Ais 
has any relevance to anyof Ae 
issues i hat are important.” 

BoA sides yesterday said 
Aey were anxious to avoid a 
“dirty tricks” campaign and 
wanted to focus on the' main 


issues. In expectation of 
Dixons’ formal offer docu- 
ment. WoolworA wrote to 
shareholders at Ae weekend 
questioning Dixons’ diversifi- 
cation record. 

Mr Mulcahy said: “We went 
over their attempts to diversi- 
fy in the past 10 years and 
identified 1 6 businesses which 
Dixons were very positive 
about at Ae time of acquisi- 
tion and which it later sold or 
closed.” He attacked Dixons 
plans as ’’vague and 
inconsistent” and said it had 
no credible strategy for man- 
aging WoolworA. 

• F H Tomkins, which has 
launched a £172 million bid 
for Pegler-Hattersley, sent its 
offer document to sharehold- 
ers yesterday. The offer values 
Pegler-Hattersley at 60 per 
cent above net asset value, Ae 
document says, and it claims 
that shareholders who accept 
Ae ordinary share offer of 
561p a share will have regis- 
tered a 40 per cent capital gain 
since April 4, when bid specu- 
lation started to lift Ae Pegter 
share price. 

The offer document in- 
cludes a 1985-86 profit fore- 
cast for F H Tomkins of £7.1 
million, compared wiA £3.5 
million in 1984-85, and a 
1985-86 dividend of not less 
than 11. 5p share.

Industry 
acts to 
lift trade 

By Our Economics 
Correspondent 

A new Movement for Inter- 
national Trade (MIT) has 
been set up wiA the aim of 
reversing Britain's manufac- 
turing and trading decline. 

The private sector body 
aims to perform a similar role 
to Ae Ministry for Interna- 
tional Trade and Industry 
(MIT1) in Japan. 

The idea is the brainchild of 
Mr Peter van Cuylenburg. Ae 
British managing director of 
Texas Instruments’ British op- 


First there was the locomotive the- 
ory. in which one iasl-growinj econ- 
omy. the L ni’.ec States, pulicd the 
rest along. Then came the idea of □ 
convoy of r.ajor economies, al! 
pulling evenly im steady, sustainable 
recovery. 

Now,’ perhaps, a more appropriate 
analogy is the deg sledge, with the 
two major economics set to g 2 in most 
from lower oil prices — Germany and 
Japan — yelping and straining ic drag 
Ae world economy along at a good 
pace. 

This model holds, despite un- 
expectedly strong first-quarter growi h 
in the L'S where gross national 
product rose by an annual rate of 3.2 
per cent, and the Administration 
confidently re-asserted Ae 4 per cent 
growA target for Ais year. 

German> and Japan have a ic: in 
common. They both enjoy large trade 
surpluses. The German current ac- 
count wii- probably be in surplus by 
S2S billion Ais year, and Japan's by 
more than S7G billion. BoA countries 
have negligible rates of inflation, with 
the ! 2-momh change in consumer 
prices likeiv to mm negative during 
Ae year. 

Germany and Japan share an 
obsession against reflation. The two 
countries have in recent months 
taken steps that could be construed as 
stimulative fiscal policy. But this is 
strictly wiAin the context of declin- 
ing budget deficits. 

The dogs, if Aey are going to pull 
Ae sledge along, will have :o do so 
without artificial stimulants. 

Germany's reluctance to take risks 
with inflation is legendary. The 
hyper-inflation of the Weimar years 
has entered Ae German psyche. No 
serious politician in the Federal 
Republic, it appears, can advocate 
reflation. 

The distinction between reflation 
when Aere is excess capacity, and 
inflation, appears to get lost some- 
where in translation. Even zero 
inflation and 9 per cent unemploy- 
ment is no excuse for departing from 
a pre-arranged path for fiscal policy. 

The German government is im- 
plementing a two-stage income tax 
cut, Ais year and in 1988, within the 
context of a decline in Ae budget 
deficit to l per cent of gross national 
product by 1989. GrowA in the 
economy is expected to be a reason- 
ably robust 3.5 per cent Ais year. 

But, even with Ae benefits of 
cheaper oil and Ae first of the income 
tax cuts, Ae prospect is for a 
slowdown in growA by Ae end of the 
year. Exports are expected to slip 
because of Ae rise of the mark against 
Ae dollar and. as a result of Ae recent 
realignment, the European Monetary 
System currencies. The German 
government has already faced pres- 
sure to do something more on the 
fiscal side, if only by bringing forward 
by a year the 1988 income tax cut. So 
far this has been to no avail. 

In Japan, the self-imposed con- 
straints on fiscal policy' are a liule 
easier to explain. The Ministry of 
Finance, with liuie prodding, pro- 
duces figures showing the Japanese 
economy to be struggling under the 
weight of government debt 

Long-term debt in the 1985 fiscal 
year amounted to 48.4 per cent of 
gross Rational product, substantially 
more than in any of the other major 
economies. Long-term debt per per- 
son is 1.26 million yen. or £4,750. 
More important, Japan has a low ax 
base, no genera! consumer tax and a 
generous system of lax reliefs on 
saving, a fact which contributes to a 
saving ratio of around 18 per cent of 
disposable income. 

The result is Prime Minister 


Yasuhiro Nakasonc's policy of 
removing dependency on so-called 
deficit- financing bonds by 1990. 
Deficit-financing bonds are issued to 
finance current govemmeni spend- 
ins. and are distinct from construc- 
tion bonds. The latter are issued to 
finance spending on in frastructure, or 
so the theory 1 goes, although the 
distinction is of questionable prac- 
tical significance. 

Japanese economic policy is geared 
to one target — removing the 
embarrassment of a large trade 
surplus. How this is achieved, and 
whether it results in stronger growth 
for the world economy, is less 
important than getting the protec- 
tionists in Washington off Japan’s 
back. 

Thus, the Maekawa report on the 
Japanese economy, and the 
Nakasone package which followed, 
have a short-term common goal — 
getting more imported consumer 
goods" into Japan. In the case of the 
package, Ais is Arough a combina- 
tion of exhortation and a tax cut. said 
to be worth 1.000 billion yen (£4 
billion) in the form of price cuts by 
the energy utilities. 

The Nakasone package is expected 
lo boost the economy by 0.7 percent- 
age points, to achieve 1 986 growl h of 
4*’per cent, in spite of the adverse ef- 
fects on exporters of the yen’s rise. 

Even so. it is fair to characterize the 
fiscal policies of Japan and Germany 
as extremely cautious. In the case of 
Japan, the charge of inappropriaie- 
ness in fiscal policy can be added. 

What Germany needs, even the 
hairshirts would concede, is action to 
improve the supply side of the 
economy. Germany as much as other 
Western European countries, suffers 
from supply side shortcomings that 
more substantial income tax cuts 
would help to alleviate. 

It may be that this is just reflation 
in supply side clothing. But if the 
short-term effect is stronger German 
growth, lo help Ae world economy, 
then aU well and good. 

Japan, on Ae other hand, is not 
badly in need of higher consumer 
spending, except for the single objec- 
tive cf reducing the trade balance. 

And Japan is hardly in need of a 
supply side miracle. In fact, to judge 
from the Maekawa report, the gov- 
ernment is seeking to inject a few 
rigidities into the labour market by 
reducing working hours and increas- 
ing holidays. 

The ideal fiscal policy prescription 
for Japan, and one Aat will do most 
for its ability to keep the world 
economy going in the medium term, 
is one that broadens the tax base, 
mobilizes the high domestic savings 
and allows far higher infrastructure 
spending. This is also a more 
effective method of correcting the 
export bias of the economy. 

At the Bonn economic summit a 
year ago. Aere was some relief among 
the European countries and Japan 
that, thanks to the dominant subject 
of a new Gait round, all talk of 
reflation was avoided. 

Since then, of course, we have had, 
Arough the Group of Five, co- 
ordinated intervention in the foreign 
exchange markets, and co-ordinated 
interest rate cuts. In this atmosphere 
of co-ordination and co-operation, a 
little gentle pressure on Germany and 
Japan to do what looks to be in their 
own interest would not go amiss. Is it 
too much to ask — assuming there is 
time left after Libya — from the 
world's leaders at the Tokyo summit 
in a fortnight's lime?

Central banks ‘may have to 
extend supervisory role’ 

By Richard Thomson, Banking Correspondent 


Central banks may soon be 
i forced to extend Aeir supervi- 
sory authority over a wide 
range of non-banking institu- 
tions because of rapid changes 
in the financial markets, the 
Bank for International Settle- 
ments says in a report today. 

The report follows warnings 
by the Bank of England and 
other central banks that the 
supervisory structures would 
have to be modified to take 
account of permanent changes 
m financial markets. 

According to the report, 
innovations in world financial 
markets sue making Ae old- 
style regulatory system based 
on the form of institutions 
redundant. 

A more realistic system 
would be based on the func- 
tions carried out by institu- 
tions That would mean 
extended supervisory control 


over non-bank financial con- 
glomerates and other institu- 
tions participating in 
international capital markets 
which do not at present fall 
under any particular regula- 
tory system. Many such insti- 
tntibas carry out functions 
which are effectively banking 
operations. 

The report says that central 
banks may be expected in- 
creasingly to take some form 
of residual responsibility for 
these companies. 

The BIS aims to set out a 
framework for International 
discsssioa on innovations and 
changes m financial markets, 
although it fa not meant as a 
recommendation oo the de- 
tailed policy of central basks. 
If h the result ofa study group 
set up by the central bank 
governors of the Group of Ten 
most industrialized conntries. 


The report sounds a warn- 
ing that while financial inno- 
vation may be desirable, there 
are dangers in Ae rapid 
growA of off-balance sheet 
operations in international 
markets. 

They were reliant an ad- 
vanced computing and commu- 
nications exposed to technical 
failures. 

The report says that many 
of the innovations were de- 
signed to improve efficiency, 
bat many were also intended 
purely as ways of avoiding Ae 
regnlatory rules of supervisory 
authorities such as central 
banks. 

The BIS concludes that an 
extension of Ae power of 
central banks will be neces- 
sary and Aat non-banks car- 
rying out these operations will 
have to be Included under bank 

supervision rules.

World bond markets 
hound onwards and upwards. 

The latest crisis in the Near 
East and the American GNP 
numbers served only to lend 
strength to tbe adage that, m a 
rising market, the wise inves- 
tor sells on foe rumour, but 
buys on the news. 

US long bonds dipped 
through to 7 per cent yield 
“bamer”, only two months 
after the ‘*ba^iH , ’ at 9 per 
cent gave way. A powerful 
engine must be driving this 
juggernaut on, it would ap- 
pear — and this is indeed the 
c&sc* 

Falling oil prices are widely 
seen as the lever on bond 
prices. The decline in enei» 

cosis has, indeed, encouraged 

the bond market, most obvi- 
ously through its impact on 
expectations regarding offi- 
cial interest rate policies. 
Central banks in foe industri- 
al countries probably do fed 
less constrained to keep inrer- 
est rates up since they per- 
ceive the in natio n threat to 
have lessened. _ 

Arguably, despite substan- 
tial cuts in official discount 
rates around foe worjd since 
the beginning of this year, 
there has been no effective 
relaxation of official credit 
policies since interest rates 
have been maintained in real 

terms. . 

Probably a more powerful 
influence than this in de- 
pressing short-term interest 
rates worldwide has been the 
reaction of the commercial 
banks to foe foil in oil prices. 

It is tempting to see the 
process at work now, when 
oil prices are foiling, as being 
simply the reverse of tore 
which operated m the 1970s, 
when oil prices were rising. 
This is not so, however, at 
least as for as the commercial 
banks' behaviour is 
concerned. 

In the 1970s. higher ofl 
prices improved foe financial 
position of the oil producer 

and created a financial defiat 

in the oil-consuming sector. 
By and huge, the improve- 
ment in the oil producers 
position took the form of an 
increase in their 
indebtedness. 

Oil consumers, on tbe oth- 
er hand, adjusted their finan- 
cial position not through a 
rundown of deposits, but by 
increasing their borrowings 

foe banks. The banks 


were willing, indeed eager, to 
intermediate these trans- 
actions. . , _ 

These were foe days when 
banks generally judged their 
success by to rate of growth 
of iheir balance sheets ana 
were generally insensitive to 

*^n the present oil shock, it 
is to oil consumers who are 
benefiting financially, whue 
to oil producers are feeing 
hardship. This time, howev- 
er, the commercial ba nk s are 
unwilling to fill the recycling 
rote which they performed in 
foe oil shocks of foe 1970s. 

The ofl consumers’ im- 
proved position is reflected in 
a rise in their deposits with 
the banks (hence, booming 
domestic money supply 
growth rates around the 
world). The bank’s balance 
sheets are expanding, but 
they are not willing to bold as 
assets, against their increased 
liabilities to oil consumers, 
loans to tbe oil producers. 

Although the oil producers 
need financial support, most 
notably in foe case of to 
Latin American oil exporters 
and the tJS energy sectors, 
to bonks are proving reluc- 
tant to shoulder the risks of 
increasing their exposure lo 
such hard-pressed borrowers. 
The banks prefer to tend to 
the oil-consuming sector, 
where they perceive tbe risks 
to be less. 

The oil-consuming sector, 
however, as_a result of the fell 
in oil prices, has less need for 
borrowed funds than it did. 

■ Consequently, the commer- 
cial banks are having to 
compete aggressively to find 
borrowers of their own sur- 
plus funds within to ofl- 
consuming sector. This is the 
engine which is driving down 
short-term interest rates. 

This engine is not a perpet- 
ual-motion machine. Eventu- 
ally, rates will be driven down 
so for that enough borrowers 
will be uncovered to absorb 
the bank's loanable surpluses. 
If governments were willing 
to increase their fiscal defi- 
cits. the extra official borrow- 
ing might take up these 
surpluses. 

There is little sign, howev- 
er, that Japan or Germany 
will accede to US pressure to 
adopt reflationary fiscal poli- 
cies, while the US itself is still 


to tempi private-sc ctoi^bor - j 

rowenm ite credit markets. | 

There is no saying how for 
short-term rates will have to 
fell before a strong enough 
demand is generated tor pn- 1 
vale-sector TJeup-; 

surge will probably owwai i 

different times m diflerent 
countries, which will in turn, 
have implications for cunen- 
cies, with capital . shnting I 
from low-credit demand cen- 
ties to higb-credrt demand; 
centres. 

The features to look for as 

signalling to end of to fell m 
short rates are sharp private- 
credit demand increares, a 
spurt, probably short-lived, 
in economic activity or an y 
sudden outbreak of currency 
instability. When these con- 
ditions are fulfilled and short 
rates stop felling, the dedme 
in bond yields will also 
probably be halted. 

Where does this leave gilts? 

In foe next few weeks, asp 
rates and inflation continue 1 
to subside, further gains, may 
be had. However, m Britain, 
the banks have experienced 
tittle difficulty in stimulating 
private-sector credit demand 
recently. The interest rate 
slide may well, therefore, 
come to an end sooner in 
Britain than elsewhere. 

Although the sterling ^ ex- 
change rate will probably 
then benefit, for a time, as 
foreigners seek to le nd to 
Britain’s relatively high inter- 
est rate credit market, foeir 
eagerness to do this is likely 
to be dampened when, even- 
tually, credit demands pick 
up in foeir own countries, so 
absorbing their loanable 
surpluses. 

The gilts market will then 
be left to depend on British 
economic fundamentals. , In 
other words, with Britain's 
domestic unit costs rising at 
5-6 per cent a year and real 
interest rates, represented by 
index-linked yields, standing 
at about 3 Vi percent, gilts will 

be high and dry in a friendless 
world. 

The moral for foe investor 
in gilts seems to be “mind 
your eye. The juggernaut 
could be heading your way."

Building 
growth | 
forecast 

By Edward Townsend 

Industrial Correspondent \ 

Britain's straggling building j 
industry faces three years of j 
modest growth, with a relatiie j 
boom in construction of new 
commercial property and a 
coafiaaing rise hi repair and j 
maintenance work- 

Latest forecasts from the [ 
National Council of Bnflding j 
Material Producers published i 
today show that the industry ! 
expects almost all of the j 
growth to come from non- j 
boosing markets. j 

The total value of all work, j 
calculated at 1980 prices, is j 
expected to rise by 4 per cent | 
next year to £2&5 billion 
followed by a further increase 
of 3 per cent to 1988 to £24 J 








Private honsebaifding is 
forecast to grow by 8 per cent 
this year to a constant 1980 
value of £3.2 billion but then 
rentals static for the next two 
years. 

Council house building is 
predicted to foil in value by 
another 14 per cent this year 
after plummeting 175 per cent 
in 1985. Frather foils of 11 per 
cent in 1987 and 7 per cent m 
1988 to a new low-level of £535 
million are expected. 

Commercial bnflding work 
will grow by 8 per cent this 
year and 10 per cent next year 
to £4.000 milium.

U PWARD 


The last three years have seen Plessey 
Semiconductors' export sales of microelectronic 
components rise by 150%. Sales to Japan have 
trebled; in the USA they have doubled and in 
some forty other countries impressive results 
have been achieved 

As a result Plessey Semiconductors has 


received the 2986 Queen’s Award for Export 
Achievement 

It's a further demonstration that, given 
the right technical ability, marketing skills 
and entrepreneurial spirit, a British company 
can compke in the world’s toughest markets 
- and keep winning.

A SPECIAL REPORT ON 

SPAIN/1 



A nation returns to Europe 


% King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia 
tomorrow begin a four-day state 
, to Britain. The king will 
address both Houses of Parliament 


Spain has underaone an ex- 
traordinary transfo rma tion in 
recent years. A country which 
for many years had been 
remote from the mainstream 
of European affairs, it 'went 
through, a period of even 
greater isolation during the 
long Franco dictatorship. Po- 
litical developments were sti- 
fled and Spain was to a great 
.extent cut off from economic 
ijCjnd social changes rapidly 
taking place elsewhere. 

Behind the Pyrenees ft was a 
world apart, distinguished not 
just by bull-fights and the 
tricorne-hatted Guanfia Civil, 
but by a traditional society 
very much under the influence 
of the Ro man Catholic 
Church, marked by the ab- 
sence of effective political and 
social institutions and, at one 
time, extreme poverty. 

Today the boll-fights and 
the Guardia Civil remain, but 
much else has chany d Spain 
has a democratically elected 
Socialist government, many of 
whose members are relatively 
3 young men with a directness 
of manner which contrasts 
with the starchiness of the 
past. 

So Spain is at last in a 
position to play its full part in 
European affairs. It has been a 
member of the European 
Community since the begin- 
ning of this year, and in the 
referendum held last month 
confirmed that it would re- 
main a member of Nato. 

The results of recent eco- 
nomic development are visi- 
bie almost everywhere — from 
new building in the cities to 
the nearly continuous line of 
hotels and blocks of flats 
which adorn, and in many 
ways spoil, the Mediterranean 
coast,' 

In social matters with the 
weakening of the influence of . 
the Church, the old inhibi- 
tions on divorce, abortion and 
sexual explicitness have been 
to a great extent lifted. 


Moreover, Spain is not a 
reluctant, member, British- 
style, of the EEC Though it is 
going to have difficulty adjust- 
rag its economy to member- . 
ship, the concept of Europe is 
a po pular one, and no signifi- 
cant body of political opinion 
is opposed- Loss of sovereign- 
ty is hardly raised as an issuer 
Members of the Government 
speak enthusiastically, per- 
haps over-enth usiastically . of 
the advantages of closer 

integration. 

This is partly due to Spain 
being, in spite of the barrier of 
the Pyrenees, a continental 
country. Spaniards have not 
just absorbed enormous num- 
bers of foreign tourists, but 

EEC membership 
sets the seal 

have themselves travelled 
widely to other European 
countries to find jobs. 

Beyond that, Europe was 
seen during the Franco years 
as a symbol of the freedom 
and progress they themselves 
aspired to, so that member- 
ship of the Community sets a 
seal on the country's new 
democratic status. As one 
member of the government 
put it, Europe is not a matter 
of “them**, but of “us". 

The transformation of 
S panish life was given its main 
impetus by the death of 
Franco in 1975. But it had 
began before that, with the 
rapid economic development 
of the 1960s — the result of 
Franco's decision to bring a 
new breed of technocrats into 
his government. While the 
political system remained os- 
sified, the Spanish economy 
began to grow dramatically, 
helped by the development or 
other European economies. 

' By Franco's death the great- 
er prosperity, and the political 
pressures which accompanied 
it, did much to promote the 
transition to democracy. 



The rock that is 
still an obstacle 


The continuing sensitivity 
the Gibraltar issue was 
brought home by the incident 
last mouth in which a Span- 
ish aircraft carrier, the 
Dedal o. intruded into the 
colony's territorial waters. 
There were immediate sug- 
gestions that King Juan 
Carlos's visit might be called 
off. 

Similarly in 1981 tire King 
and Queen Sophia did not 
come to the wedding of the 
Prince and Princess of Wales 
as a protest against the fact 
that they were intending to set 
off on their honeymoon from 

Gibraltar. 

Gibraltar has been a bone 
of contention between Britain 
and Spain since 1713. w hen it 
was ceded to Britain. When- 
ever the two governments 
want to improve their rela- 
tions there is always the issue 
of Gibraltar standing in the 
way. 

Spain insists that it has. or 
shonld have, sovereignty over 
the Rock. Britain repeats that 
it will not hand over sover- 
eignty unless the Gibraltari- 
ans agree. And the 
Gibraltarians make it abun- 
dantly dear that they do not 
want to become part of Spain. 

General Franco tried to 
force the issue. In 1969 be 
closed the border altogether. 
Bat this only made the Gi- 
braltarians even more deter- 
mined to remain British. 


After the return of democ- 
racy to Spain new efforts were 
made, and in 1980 an Aoglo- 
Spanish agreement was 
signed in Lisbon which pro- 
vided for the opening of the 
border and the beginning of 
talks on Gibraltar. 

This was not implemented 
until February, 1985, when 
the frontier was finally 
opened .and discussions on a 
number of relatively 
uncontentions subjects began. 
The sovereignty issue was left 
on one side, though the 
Spanish insisted it was part of 
the negotiations. 

The hope was that agree- 
ment could be reached on 
some or all of these — the 
communique spoke of eco- 
nomic. cultural, touristic, avi- 
ation. military and 
environmental matters — and 
that dial would improve the 
atmosphere. The most prom- 
ising area appeared to be 
aviation, and the possibility 
that Spanish airlines would 
be allowed to nse Gibraltar- 1 

But agreement has been 
held op bv Spanish insistence 
that Spanish passengers ar- 
riving in Gibraltar from 
Spanish airports and intend- 
ing to go straight back into 
Spain should nut have to go 
through immigration and cus- 
toms controls. The Gibraltari- 
ans are reluctant to accept 
that, seeing it as the thin end 
of the wedge. 


It was none the less a 
difficult transition, as was 
shown by the attempted coup 
d'etat by senior Army officers 
in 1981. The Spanish Army, 
and the Spanish Right general- 
ly. continued to have theft- 
own views on the proper way 
to conduct affairs. Though 
they were a minority, they had 
to be carefiiQy watched while 
steps were taken after Franco's 
death to bring in a democratic 
system. 

King Juan Carlos played a 
key role in this process, in the 
knowledge that there was a 
considerable body of opinion 
pressing for democracy. He 
was also aware that the only 
kind of monarchy that can 
expect to survive today is a 
constitutional one. He used 
the powers that he had inherit- 


ed as Franco's chosen succes- 
sor to select a prime minister 
with s imilar views to his own, 
Senor Adolfo Suarez. When 
the new democratic system 
was subsequently challenged 
in the 1981 coup, he used his 
authority to thwart the 
plotters. 

Since then Spain has under- 
gone the critical test of a 
democracy: the change of 
power from government to 
opposition. As a result of the 
1982 election the Socialist 
Party of Senor Felipe Gonza- 
lez replaced the Union of the 
Democratic Centre previously 
led by Senor SuArez » 

But anxious glances contin- 
ue to be cast from time to time 
in the direction of the army. 
The publicly expressed pique 
of a genera! at being passed 


over for promotion on the 
decision of the minister of 
defence made headline news 
last month. But the hope must 
be that the 1981 affair was the 
last gasp of a dying breed. 

Certainly the Socialist gov- 
ernment has taken firm and 
effective steps to bring the 

Effects of isolation 
are still there 

armed forces under civilian 
control. One of the arguments 
in favour of Spain’s member- 
ship of Nato is that it will turn 
military eyes from the tradi- 
tional dose watch on their 
fellow-citizens, to the wider 
horizons of external defence in 
a European context. 

Problems remain, not least 


the terrorism in the Basque 
country There are also signs 
that Spain's long isolation 
continues to have its effects. 
In the recent referendum on 
Nato membership, for in- 
stance. it might have been 
thought that the nature and 
extent of the Soviet threat, the 
raison d'etre of the alliance, 
would be examined and as- 
sessed. together with the im- 
plications for Spain. In the 
event, however, the issue was 
seen, not as primarily one of 
international dimensions but 
as a party political one. 

The Socialists, who had 
been opposed to Spain's Nato 
membership when in opposi- 
tion. and who came to see its 
merits once in power, advo- 
cated remaining in the alli- 
ance. The decision was taken 


despite reservations by many 
of their rank and file. The 
opposition Popular Coalition, 
though stronger believers than 
the Socialists in Nato. as 
advocates of Spain's joining 
the integrated military com- 
mands. called vigorously for 
absiention. 

On the day. the vote went 
for staying in Nato and was a 
personal triumph for Senor 
Gonzalez, and a welcome 
boost for the alliance. It 
decisively marked the end of 
Spain's isolation from interna- 
tional affairs. But there was 
much about it that was 
paradoxical. 

One factor which emerged 
was a degree of anti-Ameri- 
canism and, at times, a ten- 
dency- to see Americans and 
Russians in the same light. 


The Spanish, after all. not 
havsng been involved in the 
Second World War. have no 
historical reason to see the 
Americans as liberators. There 
is resentment of their support 
for Franco. And there are 
those who like to point out 
that the US was Spain's enemy- 
in the country’s last major 
external war. the Spanish- 
American War of 1 S98. 

There is a strong emotional 
attachment on the other 
hand, to the Spanish-Ameri- 
can countries. Though Span- 
ish trade with them is less than 
with western Europe, there is a 
belief that Spain should try io 
forge closer links between 
Spanish America and the Eu- 
ropean Community.

1905, Spam’s balance of trade 
vas certainly in the orange. 

The last Spanish royal visit to this country was 
in 1905, when King Alfonso XIII came to pay his 
respects to Edward VII. 

from) ] At that time, Spain’s economy was 

heavily dependent on fruit and vegetables. 
Indeed, any money that didn’t grow on trees 

almost certainly grew from the earth.. 

Fruit and vegetable exports accounted for over 
a third of all Spain’s earnings from the British market. 
Now, in the year of King Juan Carlos’ visit, the 

story is somewhat different.

components is growing too. 

But we’re not neglecting our traditional exports. 

Three years ago, the Spanish Government 
Export Promotion Body INFE, or Instituto Nacional 
de Fomento de la Exportacion , set up an organisation 
in London. Fortunately with a shorter name. 

The Spanish Promotion Centre currently con- 
sists of three divisions, Foods from Spain, The Sherry 
Institute and Wines from Spain. 

And soon there will be divisions to promote 
industrial goods and the work of designers 
of furniture and fashion. 

Promoting these goods in this way 
helps Spain raise the money to pay for, 
amongst other things, traditional British 
exports such as whisky and Worcester Sauce. 

After all, man cannot live by oranges alone.

ptc UK - H?edynas- 
tv But that is the position that 

King Juan Carlos, who begins 
a state visit to Britain tomor- 
row. the First by a King of 
Spain for 80 years, has created 
for himself. He can take ; a 
areai deal of the credit for the 
process which led to the 
introduction of democracy in 
Spain after the death of Gener- 
al Franco in 1975, and for 
thwarting the most senous 
threat to it when Army gener- 
als attempted their coup d eiat 
in 1981. . . , 

There is no automatic loyal- 
ty towards the monarchy in 
Spain of the son enjoyed by 
the British royal family. But 
bv his own personal qualities 
Juan Carlos has achieved a 
wide popular following, so 
that the Socialists, who form 
the present government, and 
even the Communists, two 
parties which were long hos- 
tile to the monarchy, have 
fullv accepted him as King, 
Their surprise, and that ot 
almost everyone else, was all 
the greater in view of the 
upbringing Juan Carlos was 
given as a young man. Franco 
had an ambivalent attitude 
towards the monarchists, be- 
ing glad of their support in the 
Civil War but keen to ensure 
that there was no challenge to 
his own position from Juan 
Carlos's father, Don Juan, 
Count of Barcelona, the pre- 
tender to the throne. 

He therefore arranged tor 
Juan Carios rather than Don 
Juan to be his own formal 
successor, and insisted that he 
should have an education in 
Spain. His assumption ap- 
pears to have been that this 
would instil in him a respect 
for the principles of the 
Francois! system, and that 


when the time ca ™ e ^ or ? , 7„S 
succeed he would be a didy 
malleable head of state m the 
hands of a strong prime 

minister. , 

This was also the expecta- 
tion of almost everyone except 
Juan Carlos's few close 
friends. He kept his thought 
verv much to himself as long 
as Franco was alive - and 
even since his death allows uo 
disrespect to be sho^i w l he 
Generalissimo. But he had 
come to the conclusion that 
the only monarchy which tad 
a chance of sumvjng in the 
contemporary world was a 
constitutional one; and he 
used the powers bequeathed 
him by Franco to ensure that 
he presided over a democracy . 

No intellectual himself, but 
a man of much shrewdness, he 
has from his earliest days 
listened 
carefully to a 
wide range 
of political 

opinions. .

One result is that Spain is 
now the TV society of Europe 
par excellence. The parlmfr 
game, One Two Three, has 17 
million viewers. Control at 
television, traditionally exer- 
cised by the government, has 
become one of the "hottest 
political issues. _ 

Another result is that there 
are newly prosperous migrants 
who do not share the tradi- 
tional values of the old work- 
ing class. There is a new class 
of business executives on 
higher salaries than their Brit- 
ish equivalents. Hard workers, 
trained in modem business 
methods, they do not resem-

typical product of the 1960s,

in a hard struggle in a market 
economy where privilege and 
protection are vanishing. 

At the same time, though 
mechanization and agribusi- 
ness have destroyed the Anda-

have not relieved its chronic 
structural unemployment.

But this newly permissive

than it sometimes looks. The

crisis, and an international 
economic crisis. 

The government of Sen or 
Felipe Gonzalez was forced to 
lower Spain's sights until al- 
most all that remained was the 
single, minima], essential ob-_ 
jectrve — getting the treaty 
signed. 

a^ .That accomplished, the So- 
cialist government has been 
trying to recoup in Brussels 
since Spain became a member 
on January 1 what it could not 
obtain before. 

It has already achieved 
something. Spain's quota for 
steel exports to other EEC 
countries has been raised for 
1986. In addition, the govem- 
tneni has successfully invoked; 
safeguard clauses in Spain's 
accession treaty "and persuad- 
ed the EEC Commission to 
curtail exports of steel to 
Spain from the rest of the 
Community.tfris year, alleging 
that some countries have en- 
gaged in dumping. 

So if Major Round One — r 
the entry ^ '‘terms — went. fo- 
Bhissels. Mini Rotmd Two 
was Spain’s. Round Three is 
I likely to be iii IS^'ntthe md- 
oflhe transition period to foil : 
membership- In 10 years’ time 
! Spain is expected ' to be a 
market leader in Europe in. 


certain form products and a 
market leader in cam. Its 
' wines will be holding their 
market' share. Certain steel 
products and certain textil es . 
and certain leather goods and 
shoes will be competitive. 
Spain will be a major cement 
exporter. Aik! tourism, which 
brings in over $8 billion a year 
in foreign exchange, will still, 
be booming. 

The challenge is getting 
from now to then. Spanish 
industry (in general the weak- 
est part of the economy) is 
going to be exposed soonest to 
EEC competition. The tariffs 
for industrial goods are being 
dismantled over seven years. 
In contrast, the tariffc for. 
Spain’s most competitive 
farm output (the citrus fruit of 
Valencia and the early vegeta- 
bles .and exotic fruits and 
flowers that are being grown 
tinder plastic in south-east 
Almeria) are going to be 
brought down over the longest 
period -U) years. 

No one seriously believes 
that the four-year virtual 

'freeze on dairy and livestock 
imports from the rest of the 
"EEC is going to give Spain’s 
"poorest" farm regions in the 
north and centre enough time 

to adfost In Galicia, Asturias, 
parts of the Basque oonntry 
and Castile, the. smallest 
: minijundia system .in Europe, 
with as few as four cows per 
Emn anti holdings of less than 
one hectare, is threatened with 
. extinction. . Invoking safe- 


guard clauses to protea these 
regions will merely delay the 
blow. 

. .Even in fish, where Spain, 
western Europe's leading fish- 
ing nation, has obtained a 
good arrangement in general, 
Spanish trawlers are to be 
excluded from a 30-mile zone 
pff the West of Ireland for 10 
years. This is the zone where 
the fish that are most con- 
sumed by EEC countries are 
caught. But overall-Spain got a 
better deal on fish than had 
been expected, partly because 
Spain's fishing unions were 
almost as persistent in their 
lobbying for Spain's interests 
as southern French farmers 
were in their lobbying against. 

EEC rights on the free 
movement of labour are going 
to be denied to Spain for seven 
years, however, which is a 
particularly nasty cut when 
unemployment is officially 
running at 22 per cent — a 
higher rate than in any other 
EEC country. Furthermore. 
Spain's economy has to grow 
at least three per cent a year 
just to absorb newcomers on 
the job market Last year, 
according to the Bank of 
Spain, economic growth was 
..only 1.7 percent. 

The boost to farmers’ in- 
comes that is expected as a 
result of ’bigger hand-outs 
from the EECs regional and 
social foods than from the 
Spanish Ministry of Agricul- 


greater mechanization on the 
Spanish form, but it win also 
lead to a reduction in farm 
jobs. 

The escape valve is the 
black economy. This is 
thought to reduce official un- 
employment figures by as 
much as five per cent and to 
represent 10 per cent or more 
ofSpain's GNP. 

Northern member countries 
were wary about the possibili- 
ty of yet another member state 
not fulfilling its Value Added 
Tax commitments after trou- 
ble with VAT in Italy. VAT 
was introduced in Spain at the 
moment of entry, January I. 
This could cause difficulties, 
and Spain has simultaneously 
had to end tax relief for 
exporters. In three years state 
subsidies for ailing industries 
will also have to go. 

The fear is that VAT may 
undermine the government’s 
anti-inflationary policies. The 


Socialists have managed :o 
bring inflation down from 14 
per cent at the time they were 
elected in October. 1982. to 
eight per cent last year, Bui 
this is still three points above 
the EEC average, and if VAT 
makes inflation increase, most 
of the government's plans to 
reduce the budget deficit and 
to stimulate consumer de- 
mand and private Spanish 
investment will come to 
nought. 

Against this, the sharp de- 
cline in international oil prices 
after the latest Opec meeting 
will have a dampening effect 
on prices. This piece of news is 
like manna from heaven as 
Spain embarks on its first year 
of EEC membership. Seventy 
per cent ofSpain’s oil needs is 
imported. At a stroke the 
surplus in the current account 
of Spain's balance of pay- 
ments is bound to increase. 

Spain had little choice about 
joining the EEC. There was no 


question of the 19^0 Trade 
Agreement with the EEC. 
»h:;h gave Spain the best of 
all possible arrangements, be- 
ing renewed if Spam’s applica- 
tion to become a member of 
the European Communitv had 
failed. 

Yet. as Sc nor Luis tie 
Velasco. Spam s Secretary of 
Slate for Trade, puts it: ”In 
i9&5 the EEC absorbed 50 per 
ccn: of Spain’s evpons. pro- 
\ idee 50 per cent of imports. 
70 per cent of Spain's tourists 
ar.d 40 per cent of tola! foreign 
private investment." 

EEC membership will pro- 
vide Spain with a framework 
for modernizing the economy 
and lead to improvements in 
productivity and the quality of 
Spanish goods. It is in these 
two areas that the gap between 
other EEC countries (except 
Portugal) and Spain is grcai-

The present Socialist govern- 
ment. which came to power in 
1982, has done more than its 
predecessors to make the 
economy competitive. 

The Socialists have been the 
first to tackle one of industry s 
most fundamental problems — 
overmanning. In the past, job 
security was traded for indus- 
trial peace and Spain has one 
of the most rigid labour mar- 
kets in the world. But under 
the Socialist government’s 
plans, a total of 72JJ00 jobs 
are to be cut in traditional, and 
often slate-owned, industries 
such as integrated steel and 
shipbuilding, as well as in 
leading employers such as 
textiles and shoes. 

The government has even 
enforced 40.000 redundancies 
at the institute National de 
Induslria (INI). Spains 
sprawling and hitherto un- 
touched state industrial con- 
glomerate. The measures are 
overdue. INI's annual losses 
are running at Si billion. 

.Another plank in the 
government's programme has 
been the relaxing of Spain's 
foreign investment rules and 
the offering of generous incen- 
tives to foreign investors. A 
case in point was AT&T 
( American Telephone and 
Telegraph). This year AT&T 
went ahead with a S210 mil- 
lion investment in a microchip 
plant in Madrid. 

It is the biggest foreign 
private investment in Spain 
since General Motors estab- 
lished car assembly and com- 
ponent plants in Saragossa 
and Cadiz. But when all the 
state grants and soft credits 
are added up. it will be Spain 
that will be footing the bill for 
almost 60 per cent of the new 
project 

The government is also 


promoting new, fogh-teclmol- 
ogv industries, for a*™**}* 
defence, office equipment, 
electronic* and food proca- 
ine. And INI is selling subsid- 
iaries to foreifiD multinationals 
thai can benefit from a 
multinational's international 
technology and distribution 
and marketing networks. This 
was the reason behind the sale 
of a 51 per cent shareholding 
in SEAT to Volkswagen m 
April after the Spanish gov- 
ernment had assumed 51— 
billion of SEAT'S debt. 

Finally the Socialists have 
adopted a new policy on 
nationalizations. During the 
Franco era, state takeovers of 

ailing private companies be- 
came a commonplace way of 
saving the private sector from 
embarrassment and of pre- 
serving jobs. The custom went 
un during the first six years of 
democracy. Almost half the 
loss-making companies con- 
trolled by INI were acquired 
during this time. But the 
Socialists have put an end to 
the practice. 

Tbe exception is R omasa, 
the holding company with 
interests in wine, hotels and 
banks that was nationalized in 
1983 to avert a disaster. But in 
just under two years almost all 
the Rumasa banks have been 
reprivatized. 

The only company that the 
government seems determined 
to bang on to is the R omasa 
data centre near Madrid, be- 
lieving this will be useful in 
sorting out Spain’s VAT re- 
turns now that Spain is in the 
EEC. The computers may also 
help the government recover 
some of the S2.5 billion that it 
is estimated to have cost the 
Spanish Exchequer to sort ont 
R omasa's affairs.

An old identity adds 
new life to the nation 


■jh.j-TJf. 'ysr-'k .• 


Rose Macaulay once praised 
Barcelona for conveying a 
sense "of irrepressible life and 
brio more than any other city 
in the world-* - 

Spain's most prosperous 
and. many would quickly add. 
most European big city has 
long been the place where 
modem ideas have first en- 
tered the whole country. And 
Catalonia, of which it is the 
capital, was one of the regions 
which most eagerly seized 
upon the advent of democracy 
in 1977 to re-assen an old 
identity. 

Democracy has led to an 
upsurge of moderate Catalan 
nationalism, which is regard- 
ed suspiciously by Madrid but 

has brought new life as well as 
new institutions. 

Barcelona is staking a lot on 
hopes of hosting the 1992 
Olympic Games; the disap- 
pointment will be acute if next 
October the International 
Olympic Committee passes it 
aver for a fourth time. 

In 1*324 Baron Coubertin 
changed his mind and the 
Games went to Paris. The 
abdication of King .Alfonso 
XI 11 in 1931 caused the IOC 
to ha\ e second thoughts about 
Barcelona and the Games 
went, disastrously, to Hitler’s 
Berlin in 1936. Finally. Mu- 
nich was favoured over Barce- 
lona in 1972. Barcelona's chief 
rrials this time are Paris. 
Amsterdam and Birmingham. 

The 500th anniversary of 
Christopher Columbus's dis- 
coverv of America is also in 
1991. ’and it was u> Barcelona 
that he relumed afterwards io 


be received in triumph by 
Spain's Catholic Kings, a fac- 
tor that may help Barcelona’s 
candidacy. 

As the capital of the Catalan 
region of north-eastern Spain. 
Barcelona is relying on the 
stimulus of the Games to go 
ahead with an ambitious in- 
vestment programme, esti- 
mated at £750 million, 
including both Olympic sports 
facilities and urban 
redevelopment. The spur of 
hosting a major international 
event appeals to Catalan pride 
and hopes of beneficial effects 
are based on experience of the 
1929 Universal Exhibition 
held here. 

Barcelona is remembering 
that event, faithfully rebuild- 
ing. at a cost of half a million

German pavilion, widely con- 
sidered the masterpiece 
among his pre-American peri- 
od architecture. 

h will join Barcelona’s 
many fine buildings going 
back to Romanesque 
churches, a Gothic cathedral 
and. more recently, the flower- 
ing of art nouveau domestic 
architecture, known in Catalo- 
nia as maderrusnie. and 
Gaudi’s unfinished Sagrada 
Familia church. The visual 
arts and music have always 
meant a lot to Catalans, and 
Barcelona has Spain's only 
permanent opera. 

Barcelona is also now 
Spain’s chief book-publishing 
centre, in boih Castilian 


(Spanish) and Catalan, the 
region's Romance language. 
Us La Vanguardia is the best 
provincial newspaper, El Pais , 
Spain's most influential daily, 
based in Madrid, also publish- 
es an edition there. 

The Generalitat. the 
region's autonomous govern- 
ment. has made a conscious 
effort to promote Catalan after 
its persecution during the 
Franco era. Eightv-five per 
cent of the region’s primary 
schools now teach in Catalan. 

Catalonians industrial 
growth began in the last 
century with textile mills im- 
ported from Lancashire. It has 
recently undergone a painful 
decade of restructuring, and 
now has some of the country's 
high technology industries 
aiming to take advantage of 
EEC membership. 

During the years of eco- 
nomic boom under Franco 
immigrants from the poorer 
regions of southern Spain 
flocked to Catalonia, finding 
jobs, especially in industry. 
Big. ugly dormitory towns 
grew up around Barcelona. 
But the immigrants, and espe- 
cially their children, made a 
remarkable effort to identify 
with their new homeland, not 
always appreciated by native 
Catalans. 

Unlike what has happened 
in the Basque country, the 
Catalan brand of nationalism 
has spared the region the. 
scourge of violence. But a 
certain tension was generated 
during the first administration 
of Senor Jordi Pujol, 
Catalonia’s chief minister, 
when the emphasis on the use

of Catalan was felt by some to 
be overdone. 

His second administration, 
after triumphant re-election in 
April 1984. has shown a more 
confident, and relaxed, 
approach. 

That election revealed the 
extent of nationalist sentiment 
among the working class. This 
was under-estimated by the 
Catalan Socialist Party, and 
the party remains handi- 
capped by what is regarded 
locally as too subservient an 
attitude to the Socialist gov- 
ernment in Madrid. 

The Catalan nationalists are 
among the prime movers fora 
centre-right coalition to chal- 
lenge Socialist dominance in 
Madrid: and in spite of its 
greater awareness of Europe 
than the rest of Spain, there 
was a majority in Catalonia

dum. taken as a protest vote

Some accuse Catalonia of 
having turned in on itself 
since the advent of democracy 
in Spain, but this is vigorously 
contested in Barcelona. 

La I'anguardia asked the 
other day: "How can we as 
Catalans be accused of being 
inward-looking when two of 
our most beloved institutions, 
Barcelona Football Club 
(‘Barca’) and the Orfeo Catala 
Choir, are currently directed 
by Englishmen. Terry

Hidden country awaits tourists* 


Richard Wigg 


Spain has been successful for 
many years now in attracting 
large numbers of tourists, 
above all to Its beaches. Tour- 
ism has come to play an 
Important part in the economy, 
and has also played its part in 
breaking down the barriers 
between the Spanish and other 
Europeans. 

But Spain is more than 
beaches, and efforts are being 
made this year to attract 
people to the less visited areas 
inland. 

Sunshine and reliable good 
weather are of coarse Spain's 
main attractions, and this has 
been confirmed by a surrey 
carried out last year for the 
Spanish Tourist Office. It 
showed that nearly 78 per cent 
of those questioned put the 
climate at the top of the list 

People praised the beaches 
and landscapes and, in addi- 
tion, British and French trav- 
ellers rated Spain's reasonable 
prices favourably. 

What people do not like 
about Spain are, above all, 
noise and bad roads. Criticism 
of the noise level was especial- 
ly severe among visitors to the 
Costa Brava and the Balearic 
Islands. They also complained 
about crime, public transport 
and the general state of 
cleanliness. 

But, for all those com- 
plaints, the poll indicated that 
most holidaymakers go home 
happy. A total of 77 per cent 
said they were satisfied or re^y 
satisfied with their holidays in 
Spain. 


Armed with a knowledge of 
what foreign visitors like and 
dislike about their country, 
Spanish tourist officials have 
set out to correct the deficien- 
cies as much as possible, and 
to show potential tourists that 
Spain's attractions are by no 
means limited to sunay beach- 
es and cheap drinks. 

It is no easy task to quieten 
down gregarious Spaniards, or 
persuade them to stop singing 
and shouting in the streets at 
an boor when visitors from 
more northerly dimes think it 
is time to go to bed. So, 
fittingly enough, there is no 
secret plan by the tourist 
officeto counter the noise 
oomptoints. 

Roads are another matter, 
but they are costly to improve, 
especially in as 


recent criticism on this score. 
Thev emphasize that they 
fa avi hi fact, been paying 
dose attention te it in tourist 
areas for several years. To 
protect holidaymakers, the In- 
terior Ministry reinforces po- 
lice forces in seasonally 
crowded coastal areas at peak 
periods. It also gives special 
training in languages and oth- 
er skills to policemen fo 
contact frith tourists, and if 
increases the number of patrol 
cars and other equipment 
available to police units in 
popular areas. 

Spain is a big country by 
European standards, and there 
is a lot to see and do. The 
different languages spoken at- 
test to its variety. Its tong 
fldf 


history assures a wealth 
exceptional monuments. Its

ing to set visitors on the right 
rood. A new "tourist road 
map", printed for free distri- 
bution, makes it dear to 
foreign visitors which roads 
are better, which mountain 
passes may be blocked by 
snow at certain times, where 
the main airports and border 
crossing points are, and the 
locations of stafe-nm ions 
(paradoxes), ski resorts, spas, 
yacht basins, golf courses, 
monuments and otfad* items 
The crime rate is 
rise that can be tackled, 
the authorities are sensitive to 


ties. Its passion for fiestas 
means there are days of fun 
and entertainment the year 
around somewhere in the 
country. 

Thus tire bask slogan of this 
year's campaign, which ns m tf -

Spain expects to ploy host to

up for tire 15 mHfion drop iu

If you travel out of Madrid on 
the road which leads eventnal- 
ly to the Portuguese frontier, 
you .immediately pass lor® 
lines of barracks and other 
army installations, part of the - 
“Iron Ring” around the capi- 
talwhich Franco organized 
after winning the Civil War: 
The 'armed forces were the 
backbone ofhis regime, play- 
ing largely a policeman's role. 

. With the advent of demoo 
racy Spain's defence establish- 
ment has undergone a major 
shakoup, shedding the role of 
feeing a supposed “internal 
enemy” and gradually assum- 
ing the one normal in any 
western democracy of defend- 

S external Se? 8 * p ?*f a " 
But the growing tensions in 
the Mediterranean region, 
parriculariy to Spain’s south 
.in North Africa, have revealed, 
that the pace of the change has 
hardly been fest enough. 

After the restive years under 
the fust centre-right demo- 
cratic governments, which 
came to a peak in the coup 
attempt in February 1981, the 
Socialist government of Sefior 
Felipe Gonzalez, which took 
office in 1982, has had a 
surprisingly smooth ride. 

- But as the Libyan crisis has 
underlined, much is still left to 
be done to get Spain's armed 
forces into proper shape. 

The political framework for 
this change has been the North 
Atlantic Treaty Organization. 
Spain joined in 1982 under a 
centre-right government — 

The aim is to take 
a more active part 

over the opposition of the 
Socialist Party.. When they 
came to power, the Socialists 
carried out a complete about- 
turn, and their victory in last 
month's hard-fought referen- 
dum over whether to stay in 
the alliance has now consoli- 
dated Spanish membership. 

During the referendum . 
campaign, Senor Narcis Sena, 
the Defence Minister, re- 
vealed die extent to which 
Spain's Joint Strategic Plan 
(blown as “PEC"), approved 
only last October, depended 
bn the Nato framework. PEC 
identified Nato’s convention- 
al enemy to the east and, for 
the first time, Spain’s endan- 
gered southern flanks. It pro- 
vided for. units of the three 
services to be moved; away' 
from the big cities to face 
potential external enemies. 

Now that the referendum is 
over, Spain can begin negotir 



A Coldstream Guard helps a 
- Much Spanish weaponry is a 

axing the coordination of its 
defence planning with that of 
die rest of the alliance. Its aim 
is to move from a passive role 
to more active participation. 

But the government got an 
endorsement in the referen- 
dum for not joining the inte- 
grated command structure, 
and any change over that 
looks at best many years away. 

Spam believes it can best 
make its contribution to the 
alliance by defending its own 
teriitory and the adjacent 
waters. A link-up of SAD A, its 
radar and communications 
network, with Naio's integrat- 
ed air defence network is an 
objective because SADA is 
patchy, for instance, in such 
areas as the Canaries on the 
crucial Atlantic sea routes. 
Much of the existing equip- 
ment is old-fashioned. 

• A lot of Strain’s military 
equipment is at least a genera- 
tion behind that of the mam 
Nato countries. A defence 
proc u rement programme run- 
ning from 1983 to 1990 is 
muter way to provide a new 
naval combat group complete 
with a new aircraft-carrier for 
the navy, advanced combat 
aircraft for the airforce and 
new tanks for the army. 

This yearns defence spend- 
ing, set at 630,000 million 
pesetas (£3,000 million) is 
double defence expenditure in 
1980. It noW represents about 
nine per cent of Spain's total 
national budget or three per 
cent of the gross domestic 
product. 

The Services have also been 
promised-by-the government, 
subject to parliamentary ap- 


geaeration behind that of its ? 

proval, that defence spending 
until the 1990s will grow 
annually by 2.5 per cent over 
the national budget figure fen* 
the rest of government depart- 
ments. 

But defence seeds are still 
ahead of {dans and purchases. 
Spain has not yet taken deliv- 
ery from the Americans of any 
of the 72 F/A-lSA Hornet 
aircraft derided upon by the 
Gonzalez government and 
largely chosen to be able to 
attack North African targets, 
nor are any of the planned 
Roland and Aspide low level 
anti-aircraft missiles in place. 

There have none the less 

National service 
will be reduced 

been advances. “The army 
will undoubtedly benefit from 
the referendum result,” Lt- 
Gen Jose Saenz de Tejada, the 
Army chiefs declared, it was a 
significant remark, reflecting 
the evolution of the service’s 
altitude towards Nato. The 
advantages of a future role 
within Nato had previously 
been seen more clearly for 
Spain’s navy and air force 
than for the 230,000-strong 
army. 

* The government has also 
embarked on reducing person- 
nel, which now totals 320,000 
officers and men including 
conscripts. National service 
will be reduced. 

In order to provide a youn- 
ger, sleeker fighting army, 
instead of a top-heavy officer 
corps, PEC provides for a 16 
per cent reduction of officers 
over the next six years — 
compared to only eight per 


ips with an anti-tank weapon. 

Into partners 

cent each for the navy and the 
airforce. 

A major reform was intro- 
duced test month for senior 
officer promotions. The old 
arrangement by which the 
generals themselves virtually 
selected those who were to 
join the hr ranks, and the 
cabinet then merely rubber- 
stamped their derisions, has 
been discarded. The final say 
will be left to the defence 
minister. 

Senor Gonzalez has been 
content to leave the running of 
defence affairs to Senor Serra. 
but the prime minister has 
pondered the blunders com- 
mitted by democrats during 
the Second Republic in their 
handling of the armed forces. 
He therefore folly backs Senor 
Serra's basic approach of mak- 
ing haste slowly over army 
reforms and he constantly 
uses language sympathetic to 
the services' mentality. 

The government summarily 
dismissed the army general 
commanding the high-prestige 
Castile military region, based 
on Valladolid, when he sought 
to reassert the doctrine of 
Spain's armed forces as an 
“autonomous power", an atti- 
tude which could be the kernel 
of some future coup attempt. 

Just recently Senor Serra 
nominated one of his chief 
planners to the post when it 
became vacant again- He 
passed over the artillery gener- 
al whose “turn” it was, in the 
view of the army hierarchy. 
The passed-over general re- 
signed his existing job in 
disgust.

A guide zo career 
choice 


M6re than a matter of degree 


iSSSSF*- 1 ™* *e university and 
polytechnic campuses in an attempt to 

wuit onr most able graduates they sue 
cMpoitan Ibr the best brains 
wj academics who seek those with the 
htghest academic qualifications to assist 
them "with their research, 

. Unlike industry and commerce whir* ■ 
has to resort to advertisements* bro- 
chures* presentations and other t^c h- 
niques to annua these recruits, 
academics have the advantage of three 
years’ dose involvement with their 
students to interest them in their 
endeavours. Undergraduates, taught in 
an environment where academic 're- 
search is valued above all else, can be 
flattere d by an approach fiom their 
professor with the opportunity to contin- 
ue their s tudies for a Ph.D. 

Is the acceptance of such an offer the 
best way to make progress in one’s 
career? What factors should be 
considered? 

■ ..In the 1960s when the great expansion 
of higher education was under way* a 
Ph.D was often a means of entry mto 
acad em ic life. Today lectureships in 
universities or polytechnics are difficult 
to. obtain. The recent introduction of 
“new blood” lectureships, designed to 
adjust the over-40 age .profile of those in 
academic life has provided some oppor- ' 
tunities, but the newly qualified PfaJD is 
more likely to find opportunities for an 
academic career abroad than at home. 

As a qualification for a re se arch career 

- a Fh.D is still , a considerable asset 
Occasionally the research leads to spe- 
cialist knowledge which is of industrial 
importance. Ink is most likely to occur 
if the work is undertaken in dose 
collaboration with industry or com- 
merce. Critica l analysis, persistent en- 
quiry* creativity and ' originality are 
among the attributes which can be- 

The time-scale is one major 
problem faced by the student 

gained fiom these studies. The ability to 
understand and apply theoretical knowl- 
edge and to provide solutions to prob- 
lems with die minimum of supervision 
‘are others which are attractive to would 
be employers of Ph.D’s. 

A PhJD is an especially important 
qualification for anyode. wishing to 
pursue a research career in pharmaceuti- 
cal or medical research and in the other 
areas of biological science including 
biotechnology. A postgraduate qualifica- 
tion is often necessary if entry into the 
professions of geologist and geophysicist 
with an oil company Is a goal 

Other employers welcome PhD's as 
recruits for the qualities mentioned 
earlier with the proviso that the person 
does not have such a narrow perception, 
that they can only see the skills they have 
gained being applied to the subject 
studied. V ' . . ^ . . 

- There are, however* many difficulties - 
students encounter on theroadtoa PhD 


TheroadtoaPh.D. 
is frequently an uphill 
struggle. Neil Harris 
examines the difficulties 
facing the postgraduate 
student about to embark 
on research work 

which are not always plainly visible to 
the applicants. Intending students are 
wise if they weigh these carefully before 
they begin. 

The most important problem is time. 
University regulations normally state 
that the minimum time a student must 
■ study to obtain a PhD is twti years. Most 
of the finance for research studies of this 
kind comes from the Research Councils 
and is provided ibr three years of study. 
Yet only about SO per cent of these 
students complete their courses and gain 
the qualification in under four years. 

Finance can be a major difficulty and 
many students complete their theses 
while drawing state benefits. Others 
obtain employment and attempt to 
finish the work in their spare time. If the 
employment necessitates further study 
forprofessional q ualificatio ns this can be 
a problem. 

The relationship between academic 
supervisors and then* students lies at the 
heart of the direction of PhD studies. In 
1980 the Science and Engineering Re- 
search Council was so concerned about 
this state of affairs that it published a 
brochure. “Research Student and Super- 
visor— an approach to good supervisory 
practice” in an attempt to have more 
students complete their stutfies in good 
time. Now, six years on* the situation has 
not improved. Statistics published by the 
Council show that thirty seven per cent 
of the PhD students they sponsor to 
start a PhD m 1980 are in the fifth year 
of their studies and twelve percent nave 
simply given up. 

The Economic and Social Research 
Council has- encountered similar prob- 
lems. It recently produced a list of 
universities where it did not intend to 
make grants* because Jess than tea per 
cent, of their students sponsored by 
ESRC had completed their PhD studies 
in four years. ~ 

The academic view of this state of 
affiurs tends to be that these studies are 
complex and often require skills which 
take time to master. The research council 
view that a PhD can be gained by two 
and a half years of research, followed by 
sax months devoted to writing a thesis is 
largely rejected in university circles. 
Many academics believe that it is not 
realistic to expect to obtain a PhD in 
under four years. Some fed that the 
Research Councils are interfering with 


what is an .academic matter and not 
tolly their business. 

The message for would-be students 
must be to take a close look at the 
published statistics and find out how 
long it took previous students to 
complete their studies with any prospec- 
tive academic supervisor. 

The second problem students encoun- 
ter is concerned with the definition of the 
project. Some academics recruit Ph.D 
students to embark on a dearly defined, 
well thought out project whilst others 
begin with fairly nebulous ideas which 
they ask their students to develop. If 
there isn't a dear idea to begin with of 
what the study is about* it can take a year 
or more to develop one* and the chances 
of an early completion recede. Similar 
circumstances can arise in science and 
engineering if the necessary equipment is 
not actually available and must be 
purchased, installed and commissioned 
before progress can be made. 

The attraction of working with an 
international name in a specialist field 
can work out well if it places the student 
right at the forefront of research in that 
field. It can turn sour, however, when the 
supervisor is constantly in demand from 
other quarters and rarely present for 
consultation. 

It is apparent from published statistics 
that interdisciplinary studies are particu- 
larly difficult. Such students may nor be 
totally accepted by the department in 
which they are undertaking their re- 
search. Of those whose research projects 
were funded jointly by the Economic and 
Social Research Council and the Science 
and Engineering Research Council com- 
mencing their studies in 1980, fourteen 
per cent completed their work in four 
years, twenty five per cent abandoned 
their projects and sixty one per cent 
continued into their fifth year of 

Further study should never 
be entered into lightly 


research. Many of these will be experi- 
encing serious financial difficulties. 

There are many good reasons for some 
people to undertake PhD studies but 
they should not be entered into lightly or 
as a way out of making a real career 
decision after graduating with a first 
degree. This indecision is likely to persist 
even to the completion of a research 
degree. A deep interest in the subject of 
study Together with considerable re- 
sources of determination and persistence 
are essential for success. 

Britain's research base has been erod- 
ed by cuts in higher education and the 
squeeze on research council budgets. In 
technology we have slipped into sixth 
place in the number of European patents 
granted, behind the USJ, West Germa- 
ny, Japan and France. If we are to retain 
our inventiveness and creativity to 
devise new products for the future, a 
healthy system of PhD education is 
essential.

Princely Estate should 





John Winter, the Newmar- 
ket- trainer. sends his three, 
year-old, Princely Estate, on 
the longjouraey to Edinburgh 
this afternoon to contest the 
second-' division of the 
Inveresk Maiden Stakes and 
this improving colt -can repay 
the- travelling expenses by 
opening his account. 

The son of Nonhfields 
looked on the backward side 
last season and raced only 
three tunes, on each occasion 
in. good company against the 
likes of Primary, lmnsky and 
Faraway Dancer. . 

On his seasonal reappear- 
ance over seven furlongs at 
Leicester last month. Princely 
Estate showed plenty of ability 
and after leading three fur- 
longs out was caught in the 
last stride by the Nicky Vig- 
ors-tramed Emrys. 

The: main danger to my 
selection appears to be Bill 
Watts's London Bib, who had 
two useful outings as a juve- 
nile under the care of John 
Ciechanowskt. However, 


By Mandar in 


Princely Estate may have the 
edge on fitness. 

.The first division of this 
event may also go to another 
£™narket contender, Mark 
Prescott’s newcomer. Auction 
Tnne, who has been showing 
plenty of speed on the gallops. 

The best bet on a moderate 
card should be Sotmenelle, 
who competes in the frve- 
finiong North Berwick Stakes. 
The three-year-old filly hpiH 
from John Wilson's in-form 
stable. Harry Hastings and . 
Young Driver, wfao ran with 
such credit in this year's 
Grand National, are two of the 
t alen ted National Hunt per- 
formers ■ trained at Wilson's 
famous Cree Lodge stable near 
Ayr racecourse, and 
SonneneQe, who has run twice 
with distinction in handicap 
company this term, can boost 
the stable's tally. 

My nap foiled to score as a 
two-year-old, but quickly got 
off the mark this season witha 
three-length success over Our 


ourney 


Mumsie at Hamilton at the 
beginning of the month. She 
tried to make all again at Ayra 
week later, but just foiled to 
withstand the late challenge of 
Capeability Pound, who beat 
her by threequaners of a 
length. 

Peter FeiMen’s Newmarket 
raider Heart of Glass disap- 
pointed at LingfieJd, but had 
previously held off Booty by a 
neck at Warwick, and must be 
respected, while Raas, from 
Steve Norton's yard, ran the 
useful Taranga to six lengths 
at Hamilton. However, 
Sonnendle looks a sporting 
wager to get back on the 
winning traiL 

Tnr Scorer lost his maiden 
certificate with an emphatic 
victory over Merhi and the 
odds-on Pop the Cork, at Ayr 
earlier this month and the 
Denys Smith-trained four- 
year-old should defy a Sib 
penalty in the seven-furlong 
Dalmeny Handicap at the 
expense of David Thom's 
Alnashme. 



GUINEAS TRIALS 

Faustus victory 
fails to impress 


Sore Blade, who ran a fine 2,000 Guineas trial at Thirst 

Toca Madera looks potent threat 


The Gallagher's New York 

2,000 Guineas Trial ax Phoenix 
Park on Saturday did not merely 
uncover a strong challenger for 
the Nmnaritt dasde hot also 
wrote another chapter in the 
record of the “rags to riches" 
performer. Toca Madera (Our 
Irish Correspondent writes). 

As a yearling Toca Madera 
was originally sold for 4A00 
gameas. but he was found to 
have a wind aOment and the deal 
feU through. Subsequently the 
Doblin auctioneer. Den is 
Mahoney, purchased him pri- 
vately for just £500 and had trim 
bobdayed before putting him 


into training with Liam Browne. 

He landed a gamble at Phoe- 
nix Park last a Btnma and was 
then resold to Miss Deborah 
Threadwffl for £30 lOOO. In his 
new owner's colours be woo a 
seven-forioag stakes race 

He has obviously made a lot of 
improvement over the winter 
because he was aa easy winner 
from London Tower, with 
Cranny's Money six lengths 
away in third. 

Lnua Browne rates Toca Ma- 
dera superior m Dara Monarch, 
who won the Irish 2,000 Guineas 
and the St James's Palace 
Suites at Royal Ascot. Book- 


maker reaction to this win by 
Toca Madera was to trim his 
odds from 25-1 down to 16-1. 

The other trial of the 

afternoon the North Ridge Farm 
1.000 Guineas Trial produced a 
major upset with the rank 
outsider. The Bean Sid he, beat- 
ing her galloping companion, 
Carol's Lack, by a head with the 
even-money favourite. Park Ex- 
press, three lengths in arrears. 
Jim Boiger (bought the ex- 
tremely heavy ground was to 
blame for this defeat of Park 
Express and be is still 
contemplating letting her ran in 
rbe 1.000 Kmneas. 


Newbury punters did not sec 
the winner of the 2.000 Guineas 
in Saturday's Clerical Medical 
Grcenham Slakes at Newbury 
according to (be bookmakers. 
Hills and Ladbrokes were 
umimpressed with Henry 
Cecil's Faustus, who won by a 
short head and a head from 
Lead On Time and HaUgaie. 
Faustus can still be backed at 20- 
1 with Hills and 16-1 with 
Ladbrokes Tor the Newmarket 
classic. 

Lead On Time, trained at 
Newmarket by Olivier Douieb 
and ridden by the French 
jockev. .Alain Bade!, tried to 
make" the running and did so 
even* here but in the last stride 
of lhc seven-furlong race. Sieve 
Cauihen had been working hard 
cn Faustus on the outside and 
managed to get a renewed effort 
from the colt in the last 50 yards. 

"Fausius is a very lazy horse 
and Sieve rode him a very 

Strong finish. ” Cecil said. “I was 
very pleased to see him win like 
that. Its been very difficult for 
him when he has been under a 
cloud during the winter". 

Cecil continued: “My wife 
Julie is really the trainer of this 
horse and she always rides him 
out. 

Sally Hall, tile Yorkshire 
trainer, was delighted with the 
performance of Hallgatc. "I 
think he'll get any trip because 
he relaxes so well in a race. He is 
sure to improve and definitely 
runs in the 2.000 Guineas." 


Bookmakers were 
oressed with the performance oi 
K Blade, who .easily 
Cimiax Classic TrtaJ at 
Sure Blade is now down to /-» 
for the 2.000 Guineas. 

George Du'flield incurred a 
four-day suspension from April 
■»& and his mount. Wasmi. was 
disqualified from second pace 
m the Compton Maiden stakes, 
[he last race at Newbury. The 
stewards found wasmi ban 
interfered with Baracuda Bay. 
ridden by Richard Quinn, inside 
the distance and the incident 
was caused by Duflicld's care- 
less riding- _ . , 

Du flick) said: “I’m definitely 
appealing. The other jockey had 
been riding on rop of me from a 
long way out-" 

Hardy Lad sprang a 28-1 
surprise in rhe William Hill 
Scottish National and provided 

Fren ch racing, page 4fl 

23->ear-otd Michael Hammond 
with the biggest riding success oi 
his career. Although he only 
took the advantage at the last on 
Hardv Lad. Hammond was 
confident that he had the race 
sewn up before then. 

"My horse was going so well I 
Knew I had the race won turning 
into the home straight." Ham- 
mond said. 

Although Corbiere. the I9S.I 
Grand National winner, was 
beaten five lengths by Hardy- 
Lad. he received a great ovation

Advocate General ?■ O- “-“L 
The right granted by a mem- 
ber state to its own nauooab: to 
be accompanied by ^partner 

in a stable ra* atl0nsi, ^ t 2 h 5 
than a spouse or a natiomti o

advantage which h^therefore 
to be granted lo EEC mwam 
worked under same co^ 
ditions as were appli^“e " 
nationals of the member state 


concerned. : . _ . 

On November 5, 1981 Miss 
Re^L a UK national, arrived m 
the Netherlands where, on Janu- 
ary 22, 1982 she was registered 

at the VrcemdeUngendienst 

(Aliens Office) antf declared tint 
die was seeking work although 
she was subsequently unable to 
•■find anv. 

On 'March 24, 1982 she 
applied for a residence pennitra 
order to be afjfe to five with Mr 
W. The latter was also a UK 
national who bad been working 
in the Netherlands since 
November 5. 1981 and who, on 
February 23, 1982. was issued 
with a residence permit of 
limited duration as a national of 
an EEC member state. - • 

Miss Reed and Mr W who 
were both unmarried, bad had a 
stable relationship for approxi- 
mately five yeara. • • 

On October 21, 1982 the 
Minister for Justice, rejected 
Miss Reed’s application for a 
residence permiL Smce her 
application fora review of that 
decision did not have suspen- 
sory effect she applied, to > the 
SSident - of the 
(District Court). The Hague for 
an order requiring the' Nether- 


lands to refrain front adopting 
an y measure resulting in her 
deportation pending a final 
decision on her request for the 
issue of the residence permiL 

The President granted the 
application, however the State 
appealed against that order to 
the Gerechtshof (Regional 
Court of Appeal). The Hague, 
which upheld the order. 

The State further appealed 
against the judgment of the 
Gerechtschof to the Hoge Raad 
der Nedfirianden (Supreme 
Court of the Netherlands) which 
referred three questions on the 
interpretation of European 
Community law to the Coun of 
Justice of the European 
Communities for a preliminary 
ruling. 

It appeared from the file that, 
under the State's policy on 
aliens, an alien who naA a Stable 
relationship with a Netherlands 
citizen or with another person 
who enjoyed an unrestricted 
right of residence in the Nether- 
lands could be authorized to 
remain in the Netherlands un- 
der certain conditions. 

In its judgment the European 
Coon of Justice held: 

It was appropriate to deal first 


with the question whether, in 
certain circumstances, a person 
wbo had. a stable relationship 
with a worker was to be treated 
as his “spouse" within the 
meaning of article 10(lXa) of 
Council regulation 1612/6$ on 
freedom^ of movement for work- 
ers within the Community. 

Pursuant to article 1B9 of the 
EEC Treaty, regulation 1612/68 
was of general application, bind- 
ing m its entirety and directly 
applicable in all member states. 

it followed that the Court's 
interpretation of a provision of 
the regulation would have con* 
sequences in all of the member 
stales and i^ar an interpretation 
of legal concepts based upon 
social changes was to be made 
by an examination of the situa- 
tion in the whole of foe Commu- 
nity and not that of a Single 
member state. 

Article KXU of regulation 
1612/68 conferred upon certain 
members of foe “family" of foe 
worker, including his “spouse”, 
whatever their nationality, “the 
righi to install themselves with a 
worker who is a national of one 
member state and wbo is em- 
ployed in the territory of an- 
other member state". 


In the absence of any indica- 
tion of general social develop- 
ments which would justify a 
broad intejpreiation. and in the 
absence of any contrary indica- 
tion in foe regulation, it was 
necessary to find that, by using 
foe word “spouse’’, article ID of 
the regulation referred only to a 
relationship based upon 
marriage. 

Article 7 of foe EEC Treaty 
provided that “within foe scope 
of application of this Treaty — 
any discrimination on grounds 
of nationality shall be 
prohibited.” 

It was therefore necessary to 
establish whether foe possibility 
of being accompanied by a non- 
married partner fell within foe 
scope of application of foe 
Treaty and should consequently 
be assessed in foe light of foe 
principle of non-discrimination 
set out in article ? and. more 
specifically, in article 40 in foe 
context of the freedom of move- 
ment for workers within foe 
Community. 

Given that according to The 
order for reference. Mr W was 
an employed worker, it was 
necessary to examine foe ques- 
tion more specifically in the 


light of articles 48 and 49 of foe 
Treaty and of the provisions of 
secondary legislation adopted 
for foeir implementation, in 
particular Council regulation 
1612/68. 

Article 7(2) of that regulation 
provided that a worker who was 
a national of another member 
state "shall enjoy the same 
social and tax advantages as 
national workers". 

As the Court had previously 
held foe reference to “social 
advantages" in article 7(2) could 
not be interpreted resirictively. 

The advantages which the 
regulation extended to workers 
who were nationals of other 
member states were “all those 
which, whether or not linked to 
a contract of employment, are 
generally granted to national 
workers primarily because of 
foeir objective status as workers 
or by virtue of the mere fact of 
foeir residence on the national 
territory and the extension of 
which to workers who are 
nationals of other member 
states therefore seems suitable 
to facilitate their mobility 
within foe Community* (Case 
207/78. Mi rust ere Public v Even 
[19791 ECR 2019. 2034). 


Thus foe Coun had held that 
the reduction of public transport 
fares for foe benefil of large 
families [Crist ini r SMCF 
([1975] ECR 1085)) of foe 
possibility of using one's own 
language in criminal proceed- 
ings before the courts of the host 
member slate iMinisiere Public 
v Mutsch. (The Times July 29, 
1985)) were social advantages 
within the meaning of arude 
7(2) of regulation 1612/68. 

In that spirit it had to be 
accepted that the possibility for 
a migrant worker to be granted 
foe right for bis non-married 
partner, not being a national of 
foe host member state, to be 
allowed to reside there with 
him. could contribute to his 
integration into foe society of 
foe host country and therefore 
to the achievement of the objec- 
tive of foe free movement of 
workers. 

In those circumstances, that 
possibility had also to be re- 
garded as felling within the 
concept of a social advantage 
within foe. meaning of arude 
7(2) of regulation 1612/68. 

It had to be concluded there* 
from that a member state which 
granted such an advangate to iu 


national workers could not 
refuse it to workers who were 
nationals of other member 
states without discriminating on 
the ground of nationality con- 
trary to articles 7 and 48 of foe 
Treaw. 

On those grounds, the Court 
held: 

1 Article 10 (I) of regulation 
1612/68 could not be inter- 
preted as meaning that a partner 
who had a stable relationship 
with a worker who was a 
national of a member state 
employed in foe territory of 
another member state should, 
under certain conditions, be 
treated as a “spouse" within the 
meaning of that provision. 

2 Article 7 of foe Treaty, 
combined with article 48 of foe 
Treaty and article 7(2) of n^ula- 
lion 1612/68. was to be inter- 
preted as meaning that a 
member stale which allowed its 
nationals to obtain permission 
for their non-married partners, 
who were not nationals of that 
member state, lo reside on its 
territory, might noi refuse to 
grant the same advantage to 
migrant workers who were na- 
tionals of other member states.

IT 






OUR LANGUAGE. 


There's one word that’s common to most of Europe at the 
moment- 

profits. 

Because with European markets rising 39%* on average 
last year, there's no mistaking the potential. 

And now. Save & Prosper (one of Britain's largest unit 
trust 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. 


A FEW WORDS ON WHY 
YOU SHOULD INVEST. 


AO the signs in Europe ace adding up to excellent long- 
term growth prospecis. 

•Underdevetoped stock markets that are now attracting 
more and more investors both domestic and foreign — 
and. 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 co m p a ny profits on their way up -and now helped 
by lower oil prices. 

There's every chance of excellent returns. 

Bui these stock markets are relatively small. (Even Ger- 
many, the largest economy in Europe, has a stock market only 


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 
com panies ), bonds and convertibles. 

A mix that is different from most other European funds. 
Because it stiJJ 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, wove had plenty of 
experience in getting the best oat of Europe.

. If ^ie sponsors of the Inter- 
nationa] Rugby Football 
Board’s centenary celebra- 
tions^ Save and Prosper, can 
extend . their - generosity to 
making an instructional filny 
of the game played at Twick- 
cnham on Saturday, they wiB 
do British rugby a consider- 
able service. The gulf in 
playing standards between the 
southern and northern hemi- 
spheres yawned wider than 
ever and if the English Colts 
team, in the west enclosure, 
learned as much as they 
should have from the Over- 
seas-side, England may have 
the makings of a good team in 
the future. .. 

But not next year. The 
31,222 crowd who came to see 
the Overseas Unions win by a 
goal, five tries and two penalty 
goals to a goal, a by and a 
penalty, know now why it has 
been to harrowing watching 
the British Lions in New 
Zealand in 1983, England in 
South Africa in 1984 and 
again in New Zealand in 1985. 
There is no time to change 
anything before the first worid 
cup comes round next year.- . 


place in the company. If he is 
not Bigand’s . first-choice 
scrum half now, regardless of 
the fitness of his ri vals, he 
-should be. 

But the combination of 
colossi on the other side was 

irresistible. Uncluttered by the 

dpcnmtf. HArin in “hn {_«* iUn 


Micbae} Doyle, coach to the 
Five Nations XV, said: “The 
difference between the ban 
skiUs of thc Overseas team 
and ourselves, in tight-loose 
situations, backs and forwards 
alike, was a tremendous lesson 
far us and unless we get our 
act together in the schools and 
start playing realistic rugby, 
nolmatter what we do at 
international level, it is too 
late.” 

.Nevertheless, as a celebra- 
tion of what rugby has to offer 
ai the highest level it was a 
wonderful afternoon, ft is 
hard to -believe Twickenham 


with that scored by Gsrel du 
.Ptessis midway through the 
second half which started on 
the right behind his' own goal 
line and ended in the opposite 
coiner. Hancock’s lung-burst- 
ing effort against Scotland in 
1965 was a long, long by but 
did not involve the s tr e ng th, 
speed, perception and ball 
control of Saturday's. / 

The tone was the old insis- 
tent one played on a newly- 
minted black, yeHow and 
green instrument. The Over- 
seas Unions commanded the 
ball far an hour, absorbed 
everything the Five Nations 
could offer and when they had 


nothing left, ran in four glori- 
ous tries. No blame should be 


ous tries. No blame should be 
attached to the home , side: 
they tried and were found 
wanting though it was hard 
not to weep for Sella, that 
supreme French centre, who 
shook his head time and again 
at such limited rations' and 
such limited play from many 
of the men around him. ■ 
Blanco emerged with repu- 
tation intact; his skills re- 
mained undiluted. Jeffrey and 
Ringland competed manfully 
and Hill did not look out of. 


desperate desire to “tie in" the 
opposition, the Overseas for- 
wards won the ball at s peed 
and Loveridge left it to Botha 
to run foe game. The Hood 
South African stand-off half 
™ immense in attack, 
though his defensive skills did 
not bear scrutiny; he ran the 
ball close to his forwards, be 
ran' it wide, and when be 
locked be covered acres of 
ground. 

Outride Mm Gerber fre- 
quently turned up on the wing, 
Kirwan as frequently in the 
centre; if Gerber was like a 
charging rhinoceros, Kirwan 
high-stepped through the field 
like a giraffe, Jong (egged, 
upright, all-surging swaying 
power. Twice he saved tries, 
one he scored as well as 
helping towards three more. 

The Overseas team led 10-7 
at the interval, Underwood 
having crossed in the opening 
minutes only to be brought 
back for a knock-on by SeDa. 
It was a correct derision by 
David "Burnett, who had an 
excellent - match. The Five 
Nations might have scored at 
the start of die second half too, 
Ringland streaking through 
the middle but missing Blanco 
with Ms pass , which allowed 
Kirwan to crash Sella into 
touch on the comer. 

Thereafter, we sat bade , to 
admire southern -hemisphere 
skills. Du Plessisft tty, started 
by Botha from Kieman’s 
missed penalty kid; involved 
Kirwan, Gould, Getber and 
Tuynman, before the South 
African wing scythed past the 
rest of the cover. At least the 
guests, politely, left the final 
word to their hosts and the 
speed ..of : the ! ball through 
Sefla’s hands g awe Ringland 
the final try. - .

As tbe Bath players bind up 
their many wounds and p re p are 
for tbe John Player Special Cup 
final at Twickenham next Sat- 
urday their chib selectors are 
presented with some interesting 
c o n undr ums. 

This victory by two goals, a 
try and a dropped goal to a try 
and two penalty goals over a 
tenacious but at times strangely 
ragged Llanelli team, increased 
Bath’s confidence; added to 
their long iqjury-list and 
strengthened the damn of play- 
ers who thought their chance of 
appearing at Twickenham bad 
evaporated in tbe euphoria of 
their team’s cup ran without 
them. 

Trick conjured up two tries of 
supreme quality to make one 
wonder why he had been been 
dropped from the side earlier. 
No less praiseworthy was the 
performance of the back row of 
Sparred, Simpson and HalL The 
maimer in which they shredded 
the Welsh defence in the second 
hatf was most impressive. Simp- 
son gave the kind of display that 
could keep oat the No. &, 
Egerton, who has been on the 
fringe of selection for Eng la nd 
this season and who is likely to 
be declared fit this week after 
injray. 

The Bath back row perfor- 
mance seemed to improve 
markedly after the startling 
appearance in the Uaneffi pack 
near half-time of Pickering, the 
Wales captain, amid speculation 
that his recent absence from the 
team was more tbe result of a 
personality dash than injury. 
Pickering popped out of a track 
suit in the stands hke a surprised 
jack-in-the-box taking the field 
in place of the injured Ferego, 
instead of one of tbe two other 


replacements. 

Llanelli, whose season seems 
to have fellen a little flat since 
their departure from the Welsh 
Cup, caused Bath many a fright 
despite some uncharacteristic 
. sloppy play in midfield and an 
erratic service from their scrum 
half Griffiths. 

The Welshmen had taken the 
lead through a penalty goal by 
Gravefle but several adroit 
moves by the centres, Halliday 
and Palmer, produced a try 
under the posts for Halliday 
which his partner converted. An 
orthodox Llanelli threequaner 
movement enabled Lewis to 
outflank the defence and score 
an unconverted try in the comer 
to give i a one-point lead 
at the interval. 

The second half belonged to 
Trick and the Bath back row. 
The wing’s first try came when 


he wrong-footed the Llanelli 
cover as ne changed directions 
20 metres out and his second 
after a devastating turn of speed 
from the halfway line. Sand- 
wiched between the tries. Cue 
collected a drop goal for Bath, 
and Gravelk replied with a 
penalty goaL 

Palmer limped off with a 
groin strain but, not surprisingly 
in view of the occasion, the 
captain announced that be 
would be fit for Saturday. The 
cup holders casualty list in- 
cludes Redman, Morrison. 
Chflcott, Egerton, Barnes, and 
Trevaslas.

seven goals, two tries and two

Three successive defeats, 
including their John Player Cup 
exit at the hands of Bath, meant 
Leicester were in no mood to let 
Gosforth add to their woes. 
Such was L eicester's domina-

they cookl weB have rattled up a 
huge score. As h was, they 
rammed nine tries past a 
Gosforth side forced to make 
five changes from their original 
boo-up because of injuries. 

No-one enjoyed himself more

Cardiff

It is that time of year with the 
long season drawing to iis close 
that injuries and — not surpris- 
ingly, because of the unseasonal 
weather forcing even the garden- 


ers lo watch rugby — that 
illnesses cause a difficulty or two 
for team selection. What doubts 
both these dubs had were 
reflected in the alternative 
names given to some positions 
in tbe programme. The pro- 
gramme was well inked before 
the game began. 

Neath have bad their share of 
difficulties. A fortnight ago 16 of 
their 24 players it seems were 
out with injuries. Jonathan Da- 
vies, their Welsh stand-off halt 
has not played for them since 
February 16. tbe day after tbe 
Welsh match in Dublin. Neath, 
having had a good start to the 
season, have now lost 10 of their 
last 16 games. 

Cardiff can look for no such 
reasons and have- lost four of 
their Iasi five matches. They 
have simply not been playing 
welt although in the first half at 
tbe GnoU they looked as if they 
might and could cope better 
with the wet conditions. Gareth 


Roberts foraged successfully, as 
did Crothers and Stone; Ring 


was showing increasing con- 
fidence in midfield. They went 
on attack and it looked good. 
But, without much possession 
from the Uneom it foiled to last 
and they lost by two goals, a try 
and two penalties to two goals. 

Neath had gone into an early 
lead with Mark Jones and 
Rowland Phillips in the fore- 


front, setting up the position on 
tbe Cardiff 22 for Jones, the 


scrum halfi to go on a long 
diagonal run for the try which 
Thorbom converted. 


Cardiff in feet had enjoyed 
most of the advantage. They 
equalized a little while later with 


iter with 


Cordle’s try, converted by Ev- 
ans. but the crucial score for the 


ans, but the crucial score for the 
home team came not long after. 
Neath bad hanfiy left their own 
half when Evans's attempted 
chip ahead was charged down by 
Powell. He hacked the ball on 
towards the line, tbe bounce 
defeated him, but Graham Da- 
vies was on hand to touch down. 
Thorburn kicked this as well as 
scoring a try of his own before 
going off with a shoulder injury. 

Cardiff's fete was sealed and. 
for all their pressure, they must 
have wondered bow it happened 
but they never recovered. Even 
though the home side tod to 
rearrange their back division 
with Powell at full back. Davies 
in the centre and the replace- 
ment Gary Tucker on the wing, 
they proved themselves better 
than Cardiff in deteriorating 
conditions in the second toff 


In between the two penalties 
kicked by Robert Jones, Cardiff 
scored an excellent try created 
by Ring and Donovan which 
Roberts scored and Evans con- 
vened. Cardiff have a week to 
sort themselves out before play- 
ing Newport next Saturday ui 
the Scweppes Cup final.

Johannesburg ( Reuter h-Att 
invhaiion World XV. lifted by 
the presence of seven Ail Blacks 
and playing flowing, attractive 
rugby, cruised 10 a 24-1 7 victory 
over Transvaal on Saturday, 
winning by three goals and two 
penalties to one goal, two tries 
and a penalty. 

Hundreds of police and se- 
curity men surrounded Ellis 
Park stadium in Johannesburg 
before the game, the final event 
in the city's centenary celebra- 
tions. 

Two Transvaal plavers had to 
be drafted into the World XV 
side to replace the Argentinian 
pair. Nlanguez and Morel, who 
were suffering from jet-lag, but 
the rest of the side, including the 
New Zealand contingent, who 
begin an unoffinal tour of South 
Africa next week, showed no ill- 
effects from their long journeys 

Four New Zealanders held the 
World XV pack together and 
another AJi Black. Simpson, was 
outstanding at centre. Accurate 
kicking by his compatriot. Fox. 
with two penalties and three 
conversions, gave the World 
XV the edge over Transvaal, 
who also scored three tries. 

The World XV stunned the 
South Africans with a try after 
only five minutes. Simpson 
broke through the Transvaal 
defence before feeding the wing. 
Purcell, of the United States, 
who scored in the corner. Fox 
convened. 

Seven minutes later Trans- 
vaaL, one of the strongest South 
African provincial sides, hit 
back with a try by Breedt, their 
captain and No. S. 

The World XV extended their 
lead in the 21st minute with a 
try by the Transvaal flank 
forward Hartmann after another 
brilliant run by Simpson. Fox 
convened and scored a penalty 
a few minutes later to give the 
World XV a 15-4 lead. 

An exhilarating show of in- 
dividual flair by the stand-off. 
Naude. gave Transvaal their 
second try. twice chipping over 
the heads of World XV defend- 
ers. before Breedt gathered the 
ball to put Venter over in the 
right-hand corner. Naude con- 
verted to cut the World XV lead 
to 15-10 at half-time. 

Both sides lost their sense of 
urgency at the start of the second 
half and it was 20 minutes 
before Naude added to 
Transvaal's score with a pen- 
alty. Fox replied with a penalty- 
for the World XV five minutes 
later. 

Two tries in the last three 
minutes ended the game with a 
flourish. The power of the 
World XV peck gave Shelford a 
push-over try in the comer in 
the 78th minute which Fox 
converted, and Rademeyer 
scored Transvaal's third try.

tion (IBF) heavyweight cham- 
pionship boul on Saturday — 
and retired from the ring still 
craving the acceptance 10 
which his record entities him. 

While ihe preformances in 
his prime placed him among 
the great heavyweights — 
Rocky Marciano. Muhammad 
Ali. J’oe Louis and his own 
idol Jack Johnson - Holmes 
knows it will take years before 
he is recognized as a member 
of that elite. Asked how he 
thought he would be remem- 
bered 20 years from now. 
Holmes said:“There‘s no 
sense in me chasing ghosts 
anymore." he said, in a refer- 
ence 10 the careers of Louis, 
Marciano and Aii. ''I mean it's 
written on the wall. I'd be 
punch drunk and crazy jf I 
kepi going.*’ 

He reigned continuously as 
World Boxing Council (WBC) 
or IBF champion for a longer 
period than any heavyweight 


fiSri™ enough credit 
beacause he boxed in the long 
shadow of Ali. one of the most 
popular champions in history. 
•Tm going to be viewed as a 
great fighter ifl have to build 
mv own museum, and I m 
really contemplating doing 
it," Holmes said. 

He has already earned toe 
respect of Spinks, undefeated 
with 29 wins and Ihe nrst 

light-heavyweight ever - 10 

move up and win a heavy- 
weight crown. "No matter 
whaL he's still my champ." 
the 39-year-old champion 
said. . . 

Spinks said he let Holmes 
burn himself ouL giving him 
the first three rounds, but 
from the sixth round ”1 was 
hustling Larry. From the lOlb 
round on I was out-hustling 
him totally," Spinks, who 
weighed l Sib less than 
Holmes, showed unexpected 
power and amazing stamina 
as he survived near-knock- 
downs in the last two rounds.

Overseas take-over at 
the Cumberland club 


By Rex Bellamy Tennis Correspondent 


The British Home Stores 
tournament produced two sin- 
gles winners from overseas 
(both aged 23) for only the third 
time since the Cumberland club 
tournament was inaugurated in 


the year Lindbergh flew the 
Atlantic, 1927. Catrin Jexeil 
(Sweden) beat Jane Wood (En- 
field! by 6-4, 6-2 and Thierry 
Pham (France) saved a match 
point before beating Andrew 
Castle (Taunton) by 2-6. 7-6. 6- 

Neither runner-up was 
seeded. Miss Wood, aged 18. has 
recently been unfit and did 
remarkably well to win four 
matches at the cost of one set In 
the final she had a break point 
fora 4-1 lead. Castle, aged 22, is 
in bis first season of professional 
competition after more than 
four years at Wichita State 
University. He did not lose a set 
on the way to the final and 
Pham (“Where has he been?”) 
| could noL understand why such 
a good player should be un- 
known to him. 


Pham, who has a French 
in other and a Vietnamese fa- 
ther. was born in Lyons and 
lives in Paris. He returned 
service so well that Castie, more 
than four inches taller, had 
difficulty working out how best 
to serve to him: but Castle's 
attitude was restlessly positive, 
his volleying often superb. In 
the second set be had a match 


point at 6-5 and won ihe first 
three points of the lie-break. 

The most familiar Swedish 
women are Catarina Lindqvist 
and Carina Karlsson. A tear ago 
these two and Miss Jexeil were 
chosen to form a sponsored 
team coached by Sven David- 
son. The idea was to raise 
Swedish women's tennis be>ond 
the standard set by ChnsiinA 
Sandberg almost 20 years ago. 
The benefits of the scheme may 
be more apparent in the next 
generation than in this one. 

Miss Wood's second prize of 
£714 exceeded Pham’s first 
prize or £696. This is a ridicu- 
lous example of the nonsense 
often inflicted on such modest 
tournaments by the game's 
modem structure. There' is no 
reason why women should have 
less: but nor is there any reason 
why they should have more. 

The remaining four tour- 
naments on this Lawn Tennis 
.Association circuit will be' 
played at Queen's Club (begin- 
ning tomorrow). Sutton. 
Bournemouth and Lee-on-So- 
lenL In the absence of other.- 
sponsors as generous as British- 
Home Stores the LTA must pick 
up most of the bill.

Gloucester 


Last year, when Sale became 
England Merit Table A cham- 
pions, prolonged periods of grim 
defence were needed. In the 
cnidal match against Glouces- 
ter on Saturday at Brook! ands 
there was little evidence of such 
dedication and Gloucester, tbe 
new champions, emerged 
comfortable winners by three 
goals, two tries and a penalty to 
two goals and a penalty. 

Gloucester had come to Sale 
to do a job and they did it 
efficiently with the minimum of 
fuss and flourish. 

Sale played all the early rugby. 
Three spectacular breaks by the 
full back, Jenion, who had a fine 
match, and one by Bond flat- 
tered to deceive, as weak sup- 
port play and mistiming of 
passes allowed Gloucester's gen- ! 
erally sound defence to regroup.

Football: Oxford upset odds by winning Milk Cup for the first time; United and Chelsea slide oat of tide race 


Rangers sink without a whimper

Oxford United have com- 
pleted a remarkable set of 
achievements since they came 
of age as a Football League 
dub three years ago. They 
have set a new record in each 
season. 

In 1984 they finished with 
95 points, the highest total to 
be collected in the third 
division, and won the title, in 
1985 they became the first 
promoted side to win the 
second division champion- 
ship. Yesterday they added 
the Milk Cup to their list of 
trophies and the margin of 
their victory was the widest 
since the competition was 
moved to Wembley almost 
two decades ago. 

The holders then, in 1967, 
happened to be Queen's Park 
Rangers. The score itself 
not surprising but the side that 
was expected to dominate the 
afternoon was Rangers. They 
had been unbeaten in their last 
eight games to lift themselves 
away from the fear of relega- 
tion. they had supposedly the 
superior talent, the better 
organization and were unmis- 

■ takably the clear favourites. 

Yet Rangers were lamenta- 
ble. Woefully poor in defence, 
laborious in midfield and 
negligible in attack, they of- 
fered only one direct attempt 
during the whole game and 
that came, significantly, from 
one of their full backs. Unable 
' to construct a single move of 
any consequence, their chal- 
lenge W 2 S surely one of the 
most feeble ever to have been 
staged in the national 
stadium. 

Picture, page 40 

Jim Smith, the Rangers 
manager who had led Oxford 
into the first division, admit- 
. ted that he was “sickened by 

■ the way that we played and it 

’ was our worst performance of 
the year." No one could aigue 
' with his honest appraisal but 
his words should not diminish 
the increasingly impressive 
display of his former players. 

After an opening half-hour 
of astonishingly low quality. 
Oxford climbed above their 
bewildered and embarrassed 
! opponents and finished wor- 
; thy winners. They were even 
‘ denied a penalty on the way. 
Hebberd. a picture of compo- 
sure, released the dangerous 
Aldridge through the middle 
and he was brought down by 
Wicks inside the area. 

The referee denied Oxford 
then but 1 0 minutes later, with 


Rangers already in sorry disar- 
ray. they look the lead. Mc- 
Donald, in particular, will 
remember the opening goaL 
He was beaten initially for 
speed as Hebberd accelerated 
on to Aldridge's flick. He 
subsequently failed to read the 
intentions of Hebberd who cut 
back from the byline and 
threaded his shot through 
McDonald's legs and inside 
the near post. 

Rangers, no more penetra- 
tive or imaginative after the 
interval, predictably fell apart 
again in the S2nd minute, 
although the approach work 
would have unhinged a for 
more cohesive back four. 
Hebberd and Houghton cov- 
ered about 70 yards with runs 
and passes before Hebberd 
casually rolled the ball across 
for Houghton to tap in from 
half a dozen yards. 

Oxford were by now so far 
ahead that they could afford to 
miss an open goal. Aldridge 
being the guilty party, and for 
two shots from Charles and 
Aldridge again, to be cleared 
off the line. The threat from 
Rangers, even though' they 
replaced Allen with Rosenior 
to strengthen their attack, was 
insignificant 

Four minutes from time 
Oxford, who kept their ideas 
admirably close to the ground, 
were rewarded with another 
goal of simple design. 
Houghton freed Aldridge on 
the right and he controlled 
Hebberd's return pass before 
firing from the edge of the 
area. Barron parried but only 
into the pass of the advancing 
Charles. 

The nephew of the legend- 
ary John Charles nonchalantly 
prodded in the rebound to 
complete the humiliation of 
the club that he left some 18 
months ago. The opponent 
closest to him, as throughout 
the afternoon, was Wicks. The 
pair, who were close friends at 
Loftus Road, now live next 
door to each other. 

Smith, taunted by cries of 
“you should have stayed at the 
Manor" from his former fol- 
lowers. was the first to con- 
gratulate those who conquered 
his new team. Oxford's prize, 
apart from the silverware, was 
£72.000. To think that four 
years ago. before the arrival of 
Robert MaxwelL they were on 
the verge of bankruptcy.

Hoddle glows with class 


By Simon O'Hagan 

Tottenham Hotspur 0 

Manchester United........ 0 

With England playing their 
last match before the World Cup 
finals on Wednesday and with 
their preparations, not for die 
first time, being hampered by 
injuries and club commitments, 
it will be of some comfon to 
Bobby Robson that Glenn 
Hoddle is finally fulfilling his 
potential. 

While almost every other 
position in the national team is 
still open to question, Hoddle's 
seems assured. A player for 
whom inconsistency was once a 
byword has. over the past year, 
proved that creativity docs not 
have to come in bursts. 

The feci that the World Cup is 
to be staged in Mexico — a 
venue ill-suited to most English 
players — is a key element in 
Hoddle's elevation to the status 
of England regular. For it was 
there, on England's tour last 
summer, that his ability to hold 
the ball play at bis own pace 
and produce the telling, accurate 
pass — all skills on which a 


premium is placed in beat and at 
altitude — came into its own. 

Since then Hoddle has main- 
tained his form, despite playing 
for a Tottenham Hotspur side 
whose overall performances 
have fallen a long way short of 
what was expected of them at 
the start of the season. Such was 
the case on Saturday when 
Robson was there to see Hoddle, 
against the greyest of backdrops, 
glowing with class. 

The two minutes immediately 
preceding half-time encap- 
sulated Hoddle's gifts. First a 
lazy-looking chip forward 
caught the Manchester United 
defence square, only for Turner 
to get down well to smother 
Allen's low shot; then Hoddle 
limed a ran forward to perfec- 
tion, met Thomas's cross on the 
half-volley and looked certain to 
score until Turner got across to 
Mock the ball bravely. 

With a third outstanding 
save, low to his left from a sharp 
drive by Thomas. Turner went 
some way to rivalling Hoddle as 
the game's best player. Turner 
has continued to serve United 
well throughout their recent 


Hearts revive at the last trump 


The unquenchable fighting 
spirit of Heart of Midlothian 
enabled them to earn & point in 
a 1-1 draw with Aberdeen at 
Tynecastle yesterday and virtu- 
ally assured them of the League 
championship. They extended 
their unbeaten record to 50 
games. 

Although not at their best, 
they fought back to equalize 
three minutes from lime. 
Colquhoun being the marks- 
man. after a composed Aber- 
deen went ahead through a 
penalty scored by Weir. 

A crowd of 19.047 watched 
this. Scotland's first premier 
division game to be televised 
live. It was highly entertaining. 
Hearts were nervous at the start 
andthough they did not equal 
the quality of Aberdeen, they 
never gave up. Only an unlikely

disaster can prevent them win- 
ning the title. 

On Saturday two late goals from 
Archdeacon and McClair ore- 
served Celtic's dwindling hope 
of thwarting that ambition with 
an uninspired 2-0 victory over 
Hibernian. After a bright open- 
ing spell Celtic became over- 
anxious and verged on panic as 
their opponents, who had elimi- 
nated them from the two cup 
competitions this season, de- 
fended valiantly. 

Dundee United are virtually 
out of contention after dropping 
a point in a 1-1 draw with 
Clydebank. 

gan to play with style and 
conviction. With eight minutes 
remaining. Conroy scored the 
equalizer. 

Dundee, who had started ner- 
vously against Motherwell at 


game's best player. Turner 'Oarenport (sub: j Oteen), m Hughes, F 

iris's 

Waddle may be back 


Dens Park, scored four goals in 
the second half through 
Glennie. Rafferty, Forsyth and 
Brown to gain a point advantage 
over Rangers in the quest for a 
place in Europe next season. 

Rangers again played dis- 
mally to lose 2-1 to a lively St 
Mirren at Paisley. McGarvey 
and Abercromby scored for 
Saints and, in a brief rally in the 
second half. Lawson at last 
found the net for the visitors 

There was nothing to cheer 
the new coach, Walter Smith, 
who was in charge of the team 
for the first time, and the Ibrox 
club are about to end their worst 
League season for 83 years 
because, having lost 14 of their 
34 games, they can finish at best 
with only 36 points, their pre- 
vious worst being 37. 


Chris Waddle is hoping to 
retain his place in the England 
team against Scotland on 
Wednesday despite missing 
Tottenham's goalless game with 
Manchester United on Sat- 
urday. A stomach virus caused 
Waddle to lose 71b in weight, but 
he will report to White Han 
Lane today for training. 

Tottenham’s manager. Peter 
Shreeve. said : “Chris has man- 
aged to put a couple of pounds 
bock on and it is now a question 
of him getting some fluid 
down.” 

England's manager, Bobby 
Robson, a spectator at White 
Hart Lane, refused to write off 
Waddle's chances of feeing Scot- 
land. He said rChris looks thin 
and pale, but he still has a few 
days to get some food down and 
keep it in. The most important

one of the goalkeepers Robson 
wants to take to Mexico. 

Hoddle and T inner excepted, 
there was title to catch the eye in 
a match in which neither side 
seemed quite convinced of the 
relevance of the occasion. 
Whiteside, suffering from an. 
injured back, was not his usual 
abrasive self, though he did 
come closest to a goal for United 
when his shot from the edge of 
the area bounced off the angle of 
post and bar. The best that could 
be said for United was that they 
came away with their self- 
respect intact, which is all they 
have recourse to now that their 
championship challenge is fi- 
nally over.

• On a line through Watford, as 
the racing men might say. West 
Ham's form looks superior to 
Everton's. Both sides have 
beaten Watford with a couple of 
lengths to spare in the last few 
days foil as Graham Taylor, the 
Watford manager, pointed out. 
West Ham did so with a lot 
more to spare. Just as in raring, 
though, handicapping applies 
and m that respect West Ham 
have a lot to do. 

After their midweek fen it was 
encouraging to see them re- 
mount, determined to get bade 
into the race. They now enter 
the home straight with four 
consecutive games at Upton 

Park, by the end of which they 
could be at the hind quarters of 
the joint Merseyside leaders. 
But one senses it is the onerous 
finishing back straight of two 
away games at West Bromwich 
Albion, and, appropriately. 
Everton that will test their 
stamina and championship 
mettle. 

Encouragingly, some of West 
Ham’s finest performances this 
season' have been away from 
their own yard, notably at Old 
Traf fo id in the FA Cup and 
Stamford Bridge. To those they 
could add their relentless assault 
at Vicarage Road on Saturday 
when Taylor conceded that “we 
were beaten by a better side in 
every department". He added: 
“They controlled us in a way 
that Everton didn't do. They 
had more idea than Everton of 
what they were doing as a 
team." 

This, however, ignores 
Evertoa's resilient qualities and 
the feet that they won without 
playing welL In midweek when 
West Ham did not play well 
they Iosl Though no one would 
disagree that West Ham have 


lost their southern softy image, 
it would seem they still have 
some toughening to do by 
northern standards. 

McClelland, die Watford centre 
back, said that Everton's advan- 
tage in the physical stakes was 
still noticeable. 

A comparison of the qualities 
of Lineker and Cottee was more 
difficult since McClelland could 
only have had a fleeting glimpse 
of those high-speed robbers. He 
did well to restrict both — 
Lineker on the previous Tues- 


day - to one „ — 

Cottee strikes with such alac- 
rity that be sometimes seems 
too hasty for his own good. You 
tend to forget that he reaches 

parts that other forwards do not. 

Taylor was dearly more im- 
pressed with Cottee than 

McAvennie. the other half of the 
double act. He said of Cottee: 
“We haven't got something that 
works like that in the box.” 

• Watford, so ravaged by injury 
that West had to play instead of 
convalescing, saw their one 
hope come and go after five 
minutes when West tentatively 
side-footed a good chance over 
the crossbar. 

From then on it was a battle of 
survival as West Ham splattered 
the Watford goal with shots 
from all angles. Ward was 
incessant, whether crossing or 
shooting (be hits both balls the 
same way). Having flashed a 
volley against the crossbar, 
Cottee. from .a similar position, 
pounced successfully in the 59th 
minute before McClelland or 
Coton could Mink. Watford 
eventually collapsed to the East 
Enders' old one-two 20 seconds 
before the final bell when 
McAvennie caught them on the 
break.

question concerns his general 
fitness, but he must be in with a 
chance of playing.” 

Graeme Sharp, who headed 
the goal that gave Everton a 1-0 
win over Ipswich at Goodison 
Park, has been forced to with- 
draw from the Scotland squad. 
Sharp has an ankle injury. 

Kenny Dalglish, whose Liver- 
poo] team were at West 
Bromwich on Saturday, has 
withdrawn Mark Lawrenson 
and Jim Beg] in from the Repub- 
lic of Ireland squad for 
Wednesday’s friendly against 
Uruguay in Dublin. Dalglish 
said Lawrenson, who made an 
unexpected comeback, had re- 
ceived a slight recurrence of the 
ankle stress fracture which had 
put him out of action for four 
weeks. 


The frony of felling out of the 
championship race as serious 
contenders may not be lost on 
Chelsea. David McKellar, New- 
castle United's on-loan goal- 
keeper who did roost to defy 
them on Saturday, injured a hip 
in the 1-1 draw at Stamford 
Bridge And may Hii« tonight's 
game at West Ham United. 

It wiD be to Chelsea's irrita- 
tion if West Ham, whom they 
beat at Upton Park on Tuesday, 
benefit from McKeDaYs absence 
by staying in pursuit tonight 
Newcastle's problem is that 
their first choice, Thomas, has a 
troublesome shoulder. One of 
them will have to face West 
Ham. Chelsea's cause might not 
have been so hopeless had 
Nevin put away some easy 
chances either side of the goal he 
did score, which was later 
cancelled out by one from 
Anderson. 

Liverpool stayed on top. by 
virtue of an unconvincing 2-1 
away victory against the bottom 
club. West Bromwich Albion. 
Madden equalized an early goal 
by Dalglish, only for Rush to 
plunder Liverpool's winner in 
the second telf 

With the exception of those 
matches involving the 
championship, every other first 
division fixture had the relega- 
tion issue ai stake. Not even 
Manchester City, after their 2-1 
home defeat by No ttingh a m 
Forest, can breathe safely, 
particularly since Coventiy City, 
for whom Pickeriim scored the 
only goal against Lnfoa Town, 
are showing signs of making 
their annual great escape. Aston 
Villa's 2-0 defeat at Sheffield 


Wednesday leaves them feeing 
an anxious last two matches u 
they are not to join West 
Bromwich and Birmingham 
City in the second division next 
season. Birmingham's relega- 
tion became certain when they 
went down 2-0 at home to 
Southampton before a post-war 
record low crowd of 5,833 at St 
Andrew's. 

With Norwich City securing 
the second division champion- 
ship in their 1-1 home draw 
against Stoke C5ty it is still two 
from the next four to join them, 
Portsmouth being the 
favourites. Stung into action by 
the public criticism of their 
manager, Alan Ball, they ended 
a run of three reverses with a 3-1 
victory a gainst Grimsby Towi^ 

With Wimbledon and 
Charlton Athletic held to 1-1 
draws at Shrewsbury Town and 
Hull City respectively. Crystal 
Palace kept their remote hopes 
alive with their biggest win of 
the season, 3-0 against Leeds 
United. Leeds had Sheridan sent 
off and others to discover the 
feel of loneliness in an empty 
dressing room were Stevens, of 
Shrewsbury, Marden boro ugh, 
ofNewport County, and Barries, 
of Wolverhampton Wanderers. 

Parker, of Fulham, who are all 
but down, also left early but it 
was a dislocated shoulder that 
caused his departure at Carlisle 
United, whose 2-1 win means 
that Bob Stokoe may yet push 
his old dub. Sun de r la n d , Lawrie 
McMenemy and all, into the 
third division, despite their 2-0 
victory over Barnsley. 


Everton — — J 

Ipswich Town 0 

Everton took another step 
towards retaining their League 
title in a match which empha- 
sized the widening gap in quahty 

between teams near the top and 
bottom of the first division. 
Everton. in second place, won 
without playing anything like as 
well as mey can while Ipswich 
Town, in nineteenth p osition , 
were oonaantiy on the retreat, 
even before injuries to $ 
Zondervan and lYAvray re- f 
duced them to 10 men for much J 
of the second half. J 

D’Avray. who was carried off A 
after 55 minutes, has damaged a 1 
knee ligament and is out for die \ 

remainder of the season. ' 

Despite Ipswich's desperate } 
need for three points, it ap- 'i 
peared that their intention was ! 
simply to contain Everton. ’ 
whose s u pp o rters seemed bored 
with the one-sided nature of the 
contest. Ipswich did not force a 
corner until five minutes from 
the end and their only genuine 
goal attempt was made seconds 
rater when a cleanly struck shot 
by Gleghom brought a good 
save from Minims at the foot of 
a post 

It is easy to see why Ipswich 
have the worst scoring record in 
the League and have failed to 
register a goal in their last four 
games. They will have to be 
bolder in thrir three remaining 
fixtures, starting on Saturday 
when they are at home to 
Oxford United, their feflow 
relegation stragglers and the 
Milk Cup winners. Whoever 
comes off second best will 
probably lose their first division 
status. 

The game in ‘hand which 
Everton have over Liverpool is 
looking more priceless by the 
week as the Merseyside teams 
continue to be separated only by 
goal difference. Everton have 
four matches left and perhaps 
their biggest test wiD be on 
Saturday against Nottingham 
Forest, who have a habit of 
upsetting championship 
contenders. 

Everton had so much pos- 
session and forced so many 
corners that it was surprising 
that they created so few chances. 
The opening minutes augured 
well with Steven's forceful 
header hitting the upright and 
Heath's lob from the rebound 
being headed off the line by 
Cranson but from then on the 
proce e dings were almost as drab 
as the weather. It was mainly 
because of Cranson and his 
centre bark partner. Butcher, 
that Everton bad to wait until 
the 64lh minute for their break- 
through. The pair were for once 
caught out as Richardson deliv- 
ered a diagonal centre from the 
left and Sharp timed his Jump 
perfectly to glance the ball into 
tiie roof of tin net. 

Everton were unable to in- 
crease their lead and it was a 
depleted Ipswich who amw 
closest to scoring in the final 
seconds. If only they had had the 
courage to have started the 
match as they finished it — on 
the attac k.

emergency meeting that any 
further taxation on dubs this

The appeal needs to be deli-

guidance might be advisable. 
The cause is good and emotive. 
The British junior team should 
be selected on merit and not

MONDAY APRIL 21 1986 




Seko sails in 
ahead of rest 


By Pat Batcher, Athletics Correspondent 


A high uind in the Jamaica 
Road signalled the end of 
Toshibiko Seko’s attempt at a 
world best time in the Mars 
London Marathon yesterday. 
At that point. 1 1 miles into the 
26. the Japanese had sailed 
a«ay not only from any poten- 
tial opponent but also from 
Steve Anders, the pacemaker, 
and was on rime for something 
iust under the 2hr 7min I2sec 
that Carlos Lopes set in Rotter- 
dam one year ago. 

Seko got a respite shortly 
afterwards when he turned 
across Tower Bridge and head- 
ed east into the Isle of Dogs. 
But having fallen outside five 
minuies a" mile for the first 
rime at IS miles, the wind in 
his favour again for the final 
si\ miles was so effective that 
Seko’s winning time was 
pegged to 2hr lOmin 2$ec. 

That was still good enough 
to beat Hugh Jones, the 1982 
London winner by over one 
and a half minuies and Jones 
admitted that he had given up 
any chance of trying to catch 
Seko four miles from the finish 
after slithering across the 
cobbles beside the Tower, still 
one of the most problematic 
pans of this course, although 
they had been made extra 
dangerous by earlier rain. 

But Jones successfully 
achieved the parallel task of 
qualifying to join the pre- 
selected Steve Jones in the 
European championships mar- 
athon in Stuttgart in late 
summer, as did AUistcr 
Hutton, who finished third 
yesterday. Both Jones and 
‘Hutton admitted that the com- 
bination of the effects of the 
fast early pace and the high 
wind in the latter stages also 
slowed them such that they 
were well outside their best 
times. 

There should have been 
little question about the choice 
of Hugh Jones and Hutton at 
yesterday afternoon’s selection 
conference, the outcome of 
which is due to be announced 
later this week. The British 
women’s selection is less 
straight forward. 

Yeronique Marou the holder 
of the British best with 2hr 
28min 4sec had to drop out 
early in the race having been 
sick for the previous 12 hours. 
Vet any precedence that the 
mins. Ann Ford 3nd Paula 
Fudge, may have had over her 
when they finished third and 
fifth behind the personal best 
victory of Grete Wait* (2hr 


2-imin 54sec). albeit in much 
slower times than Maroi’s best- 
disappeared when Ford re- 
vealed that they did not wish 
to be considered for either the 
European championships or 
the Commonwealth Games. 

Ford said afterwards that 
neither was interested in an- 
other such long-distance race, 
but at 34 years of age they also 
realize that there is not much 
time left to benefit from the big 
money read races that they are 
capable of winning in the 
United States nowadays. Only 
Marot will go to the European 
cbgampionships. the British 
Amateur Athletic Board decid- 
ed vesierday. 

Sarah Rowell, who held the 
previous British best with 2hr 
2Smin 6sec was unable to run 
yesterday through injury- but if 
she recovers, she is the obvious 
choice for Edinburgh, and with

day in 2hr 41 min I2sec and

Jackqui Hulbert in ninth place 
set a Welsh best of 2hr 39min 
26sec and should certainly go 
to Edinburgh for her country. 

leuam Ellis was an equally 
impressive Welsh representa- 
tive yesterday. He finished 
eighth in 2hr 14min 38sec. also 
ensuring a Commonwealth se- 
lection. .And Ellis also helped 
to give Kevin Forster a desper- 
ate last miles. Forster had

difficult par for the North

surpass Peter Baker and Da-

with three other players inter-

minder to the England 
selectors, whose faith in him 
declined last year to the point

Georges Mikhalides con- 
firmed Hail To Roberto as a 
definite runner for the -.000 
Guineas even though that colt 
was beaten 1 •/: lengths by Bad 
Conduct in yesterday's Prix de 
Guiche at Longchamp. 

Mikhalides may also run

Maisons-Laffme on Friday, 
while he has Rose Of The Sea 
and Prospect Tora lined up for 
the 1 . 000 . 

Bad Conduct, who complet- 
ed a big-race double for his 
trainer. Patrick Biancone. will 
bid for ihe Prix Lupin in 
which he will meet the Prix 
Noailles winner. Bearing. 
Barjer won the Prix Vanteaux 
to initiate Biancone’s double. 
Biancone said: - She will run 
in either the Diane or the Oaks 
and my preference is for the 
Oaks." 

Bearing gave Criquette 
Head her first important suc- 
cess of the year when gaining 
an eight-length victory in the 
Prix Noailles. He will be a

m- 


pre-selected Gateshead club 
colleague. Charlie Speeding, in 
the England team in Edin- 
burgh when he was in the first 
IQ at 20 miles. But when he 
started to suffer and drop back, 
he mistook Sits for the En- 
glishman. John Boyes. The 
when Phil O’Brien, in his first 
official marathon passed For- 
ster. the Geordie almost 
dropped out thinking the last 
Edinburgh ticket had been 
cancelled. When told of Ellis’s 
true identity, he almost at- 
tacked the exhausted and pros- 
trate Welshman in order to 
verily- the fart. 

O’Brien had run unofficially 
in the Harrow Marathon last 
October in his first attempt at 
the distance. He ran under 2hr 
20min. and was almost 45 
minutes faster yesterday with 
2hr 15min. He said he was 
disappointed with that time, 
but it should be good enough 
for Edinburgh. Forster was 
1 5th, and should also be 
selected, and Boyes was, in 
fact 22nd. 

Seko dedicated his victory in 
his first marathon since finish- 
ing fourteenth in the Olympic 
Games to Kyoshi Nakamura,

HORSE TRIALS: DOWNPOUR MAKES MANY A RIDER SUP OUT OF CONTENTION 


Stark’s success in the mud 


By Jenny MacArthnr 


Ian Stark, who two years 
ago fulfilled a life-long ambi- 
tion by merely competing at 
the Badminton Horse Trials, 
yesterday triumphed in the 
mud to become the first 
Scottish winner of the 
Whitbread Trophy since 
Anncii Drummond-Hay in 
1962. Riding the Edinburgh 
Woollen Mill's Sir Whattie. 
Stark held off the challenge of 
2 1 -year-old Rachel Hunt on 
Piglet U. whose outstanding 
cross-country performance 
lifted her from forty-seventh 
to second position. 

Rodney Powell's bout of 
bad luck, which kept him out 
of last year’s European cham- 
pionships, was decisively end- 
ed when he finished thud on . 
Michael Kent's Pomeroy. 

Relentless rain dominated 
this year's Badminton and 
there was no let up yesterday, 
with the organizers starting 
the show-jumping earlier than 
scheduled. . 

Bruce Davidson, of the 
United States, dropped from 
fifth to sixth place on J J Babu 


after one fence down. Virginia 
Leng. whose refusal coming 
out of the lake on Saturday's 
cross-country prevented a sec- 
ond successive win, produced 
a superb dear round on Night 
Cap II to retain fourth place. 
Powell then had two fences 
down but kept his third place. 

By the time Miss Hunt 
appeared in the arena the rain 
was coming down so hard that 
she “couldn't see the fences,” 
but she and Piglet H complet- 
ed a fine round with just one 
fence down to stay in second 
place. 

Stark was then able to have 
two fences down and still win. 
Sir Whattie, competing in his 
first three-day event since 
straining a tendon at Burgh ley 
in 1984. looked fit and well 
and galloped through, with 
just one fence down.to claim 
the trophy. “He jumped bis 
heart out for me on Saturday,” 
said Stark, who flies to Austra- 
lia on Thursday to compete 
with Oxford Blue in the world 
championships. • . 

Inevitably the appalling 


conditions played a part in 
Saturday's cross-country. Da- 
vidson, who said he had never 
ridden in worse condi rionSs 
was one unlucky victim. Lead- 
ing after the dressage he saw 
the trophy slip from his grasp 
ai the coffin, the fence that was 
also the undoing of Mark 
Todd, of New Zealand, who 
had a refusal there on Any 
Chance and a fan on Michael- 
mas Day on an otherwise 
brilliant round. 

Lucinda Green was die 
most notable victim of the 
cross-country course. The six 
times winner of Badminton 
had one of the worst rounds of 
her life on the 1 1 -year-old 
Shaonagh, but despite an hor- 
rific fall at the Stockholm 
fence and another at the lake, 
she climbed back on to finish 
the course — only to find that 
she then had to comfort her 
husband, David, whose horse. 
Walkabout, had just dropped 
dead from a suspected heart 
attack on the steeplechase 
phase. 

No one finished in the time 


although Miss Hunt came 
close with only 18 time 
penalties. Her astontdiingjy 
quick time is put into perspec- 
tive when set alongside the 
next two fastest rounds — 
Powell’s (112 time penalties) 
and Todd’s with Any Chance 
(19.2J. 

The heavy going produced a 
lot of tired horses by tire endof 
Saturday's crosscountry but, 
with 12 horses collecting no 
jumping faults and with 36 out 
of the 52 starters finishing the 
cross-country, the effect of the 
conditions. . as predicted by 
Colonel Frank Weldon, the 
course designer, was less than 
bad been feared by riders and 
spectators. 


Robbing sho&lders 

with rami gentry 


If you happen to nonce 
Luanda Green, the braves 
sporting mother in Britain, 
hording headlong into the ditch 
when attempting the frighten- 
ing Stockholm fence, or almost 
come to grief at the voyeuristic 
double water jump — Princess 
Anne Sank Here - then that is 
an inddennd bonus. 

Even the vicarious thrill of 
dan^r. Hfe that at Silversione, 
makes strangely tittie impact on 
a seffconteraed public who 
have crane to rub shoulders 
with ratal gentry, to give 
motber-m-faw* treat or just to 
get the kids out of the house. To 
whisper sweet nothings to the 
frtpg amour under a dripping 
oak tree. TogrtsttadSy merrier 
on fager six-paths or btitfaly 
packed in the boot, depending 
on whether you arrive by 
Allegro or Range Rover,

RUGBY LEAGUE 


SNOOKER 


Relief for Halifax No rub of green 


After the roost nerve-wrack- 
ing 80 minutes Halifax sup- 
porters have endured, the 
Thrum Hall dub yesterday 
won the Slalom Lager champi- 
onship after an agonizing fast 
few minutes in which 
Featherstone Rovers threat- 
ened to deny them of the prize 
(Keith Macklin writes). 

In the second halt Rovers 
had pulled back from. 1 1-1 to 
13-13, and the Halifax follow- 
ers roared as much with relief 
as delight when the final 
hooter put them out of their 
misery. Rovers were also 
grateful for the point, because 
it was enough to keep them in 
the first division after York's 
18-15 defeat at Dewsbury. 

Halifax seemed to be coast- 


Bland does 
a Nicklaus 

Cannes (Reuter) — John 
Bland, of South Africa, “did a 
Jack Nicklaus" to beat 
Severiano Ballesteros in the 
Cannes Open golf champion- 
ship yesterday. Bland, celebrat- 
ing his 41st birthday a day 
early, shot 67 for a 12-under- 
par 276. coming from two 
behind Ballesteros before the 
start of the final round to finish 
four in front 

Ballesteros slipped to a 73 
after several unsettling inci- 
dents involving photographers 
but refused to make escuses. It 
was at the US Masters a week 
ago that Ballesteros spoiled his 
chances by hitting into a lake. 
Bland said: “It's bard to believe 
1 gave the world’s best golfer 
two shots and beat him by 
four.” 

Quick Duran 

Panama City (Agencies) — 
The former world boxing 
champion. Roberto Duran, 
needed less than two rounds to 
defeat Jorge Suero, of the 
Dominican Republic. The 
scheduled 1 0-round middle- 
weight bout ended Imin 45sec 
into the second round when. 
Duran connected with a left to 


ing to the title when first-half 
tries by George and Dixon, a 
goal from Whitfield and a 
dropped goal from Stephens 
gave them an apparently com- 
fortable lead. However, 
Rovers hit back immediately. 

Wigan bad a comfortable . 
win over Leeds to maintain 
their threat right to the end,

the opposition following the 
withdrawal through injury of

Fifth triumph 

Southgaic's hopes of re-en- 
tering Europe next year were 
revived yesterday when they 
retained the Hockey Associar 
Lion Cup after defeating Pick- 


Dennis Taylor’s reign as 
world snooker champion end- 
ed at the Sheffield Crucible 
Theatre on Saturday night as 
it had begun — with a smile 
and a joke. ' 

The Irishman’s sporting, re- 
action to being toppled at the 
first hurdle in his champion- 
ship defence by a 200- i out- 
sider, Mike HaUett, from 
Grimsby, was in marked con- 
trast to the mask of frozen 
horror that Steve Davis wore 
after Taylor’s astonishing 
fighrback from 8-0 down in 
last year's finaL 

“There is no point in groan- 
ing about it and at least I made 
a fight of the match,’’ Taylor 
said yesterday. He fell 8-4 
behind in the first session biit 


wick 3-0 in' the final at 
Wilksden (Sydney F risian 
writes). Hounslow are champi- 
ons tor the first time of the

Final path 

Amelia Island, Florida — 
Steffi Graf and Claudia Kobde-

vanced to the final of the WTA 
Championships. Miss Graf

eventually lost 10-6 after win- 
ning the first five frames on 
Saturday evening. His win- 
ning streak ended when he 
missed a crucial green in the 
15th frame for HaUett, the 
world No. 28* to seize on . a 
frame-winning break of 67 
which he followed up with 76 
in the next frame for victory. 

“It is ironic that the green of 
aft colours let me down. It 
virtually cost me the match. 
.Stupid Irish bail!” Taylor 
joked afterwards: •• •••'.

tribute to his beaten oppo-
