From Robert Fisk r . 

Tripoli 

As ingratiatingly selfcriti- 
cat article in the weekly news- 
paper of Libya’s “Revolu- 
tionary Committees*’ and a 
comparatively mild reproof of 
EEC ambassadors for tbeir 
countries’ new measures ag- 
ainst Colonel GadaffTs regime 
provided further evidence at 
the weekend that Libya’s rul- 
ers want to de-escalate the 
crisis in the Mediterranean. 

Demands from whitin' the 
Government that Libya 
should “clean up its house” — 
the words were in the article 
written by a cousin of Colonel 
Gadaffi - have been coupled 
with further Libyan assur- 
ances of undying friendship 
with the Soviet Union. 

Colonel Alexander Kval- 
chok, the commander of the 
Soviet naval squadron now 
visiting Libyan ports to show 
Moscow's moral support -for 
Libya, stood in silence on 
Saturday at the graves of some 
of Tripoli's civilian air raid 
victims. 

In a briefbui almost ecstatic 
report, the official Libyan 
news agency said that Soviet 
officers and soldiers, together 
with the Russian ambassador 
to. Tripoli, stood in the 
cemetary “in respect of the 
; sacred spirits of the martyrs” 
who died in “the foiled Ameri- 
can barbaric aggression.” 

However truculent these 
words may sound, it is equally 
dear that the Libyan leader- 
ship is undergoing a period of 
considerable self examination. 

The article in Jamofioriya 
newspaper; for example, criti- 
cized not just those revolu- 
tionary cadres who “ran 
away” during the American 
air raids two weeks ago. but 
also those who claimed — 
fraudulently — that 24 US jets 
bad been shot down “tike 
autumn leaves” during the 
bombing. 

Even the Palestinian groups 
whom the Libyans support — 
the pro-Moscow Democratic 
front for the Liberation of 
Palestine, the Popular Front 
for the Liberation of Palestine, 
the Popular Front for the 
Liberation of Palestine Gener- 
al-Command and the Pales- 
tine Popular Salvation Front 
— was given ah audience by

Reagan 

warns 

‘cowards’ 

From Michael Binyon 
Washington 

President Reagan warned 
terrorists and dictators at the 
weekend to be prepared for 
the consequences of their 
“cowardly acts”. 

"The world today is a 
dangerous place — even, in 
some regions, a savage place,” 
he said on arrival at Hickam 
Air Force Base in Hawaii But 
the US was showing perpetra- 
tors of cowardly acts against 
Americans that they had best 
be prepared for the conse- 
quences. 

He praised the US armed 
forces, telling the servicemen 
and their families who greeted 
him that they were performing 
a “difficult duty” in the world. 

But America today was 
“standing tall.” It was rebuild- 
ing its defences and going 
ahead with new weapons 
programmes. 

Mr Reagan flies on today to 
Guam on his way to the 
Economic Summit in Tokyo. 
His warning on terrorism, the 
latest in a series threatening 
further military strikes against 
countries sponsoring terror- 
ism. shows he intends to focus 
on the issue in Tokyo. 

He is expecting “forceful 
and collective action” and US 
officials are hoping a joint 
statement on terrorism will be 
made by the' seven countries.

In an article marking the 
anniversary of the communist

newspaper said that criticism 
had been expressed at the slow 
speed of the introduction of 
reforms in fie country. 

it follows the widely-noted 
failure of Mr Mikhail Gor- 
bachov. the Soviet leader, to 
meet Mr Karmal during his 
stay in Moscow for fie 27th 
Communist Party congress in 
February. 

That was seen by many 
observers here as a deliberate 
snub. 

The Pmvda article added: 
“Dissatisfaction wifi what

Although there has been no

diplomats here believe that 
President Karmal, who has not 
been seen since March 30. 
when he left mysteriously for 
an “unofficial” trip to Mos- 
cow, may still be here, being 
treated in secret for a lung

Seal of 
secrecy 
on jewels 

By Suzy Menkes 

The fate of fie Duchess of 
Windsor's jewels will never be 
known unless or until a state- 
ment is made by her lawyer 
and friend Maitre Suzanne 
Blum. 

For fie Duchess’s last will 
and testament will be “sealed” 
and its contents never publicly 
known, legal historian Mi- 
chael Nash suggested 
yesterday. 

MrNash, a senior lecturer 
in law at Norwich College, 
who has made a study of royal 
wills, claims that the Duke of 
Windsor's will was sealed on 
November 27. 1972, and that 
his wife’s will be accorded this 
same “royal” treatment. 

The estate of fie former 
Edward VIII was never re- 
vealed, nor were individual 
bequests, although his will is 
believed to contain a clause 
relating to his wife’s jewels 
and requesting that they 
should never be worn by 
another woman. 

The practice of sealing royal 
wills in perpetuity was intro- 
duced only this century, ac- 
cording to Mr Nash. Queen 
Mary sealed the will of her 
brother. Prince Frank of Teck, 
who died in 1910. after a 
dispute over family jewels. 
MrNash also bad evidence 
that Queen Alexandra died 
intestate in 1925, thus scotch- 
ing fie theory that she left fie 
friture Edward VIII the “Alex- 
andra Emeralds” in her will. 

The present practice is that 
when a royal will is proved, the 
president of the family divi- 
sion at Somerset House orders 
it to be sealed and not opened 
to public inspection. The 30- 
year rule does not apply. The 
Treasury Solicitor seeks the 
views of Buckingham Palace 
whenever an application for 
the sealing of a royal will is 
made. 

A spokesman for Bucking- 
ham Palace said that the royal 
family knew nothing about fie 
will of the Duchess of Windsor 
and that it was entirely a 
matter for her executors. The 
British Embassy in Paris con- 
firmed that its' relationships 
with the Duchess ended yes- 
terday when her “mortal 
remains” were flown out of 
France.

Mr Paul Channon. Secre- 
tary of State for Trade and 
Industry, yesterday triggered a 
new dispute over BL when he 
opened up the possibility of 
General Motors returning to 
negotiations for the purchase 
of BL companies. 

He said in an interview on 
Channel 4’s The Business 
Programme that if an accept- 
able deal could have been 
struck with GM. it would have 
solved the problem of ihe 
truck industry. 

Mr Channon was then 
asked whether there was not a 
risk that he would find himself 
having to go to GM to invite 
them back. He replied: “Per- 
haps they will have to come to 
us, if they want to." 

That remark was pounced 
upon by Mr Roy Hattersley. 
the deputy Labour leader, who 
created the original dispute 
over BL privatization in Feb- 
ruary. He said that his infor- 
mation was that once passions 
had cooled, the Government 
would again seek a foreign 
buyer for BL companies, with 
GM remaining the favourite 
candidate. 

Mr Hattersley said: “Those 
sources which warned us that 
the Government intended to 
sell off British Ley land to 
General Motors and to Fords 
told us last week that it 
remained the Government's 
intention to go ahead with the 
General Motors bid after a 
year's pause. Today Mr 
Channon made dear that our 
information was again 100 per 
cent correct.” 

It was thought last night 
that Mr Hauersley's sources 
were based on disaffected 
areas of BL management — 


upset by ihe appointment of 
Mr Graham Day. who takes 
over as BL chairman next 
Thursday. They have been say- 
ing that ministers will resume 
secret talks with GM once 
ami-Governmeni publicity 
over Land Rover has 
subsidcd.The suggestion is 
that the Government would 
be prepared to offer GM tbe 
opportunity to bid for shares 
in Land Rover when the 
company is floated in about 
I S months* to two years' time. 

However, the BL sources 
have been saying that the 
Government would insist on a 
substantial holding in Land 
Rover remaining in British 
hands, and that ministers 
would require a stronger grip 
on pofiev than at present 
exists with GM’s British inter- 
ests. Those are the points on 
which the previous GM talks 
foundered, and it was evident 
that if GM had accepted such 
terms ministers would have 
favoured a GM deal in spite of 
hostility from some Conserva- 
tive backbenchers. 

Mr Channon said in that 
although he welcomed foreign 
investment, “there are a few 
companies in this country 
where I think that there is a 
very. 'very strong desire that 
they should remain British”, 
and Austin Rover and Land 
Rover fell within that catego- 
ry- 

Mr Channon told the Com- 
mons last Thursday that the 
BL board had decided to turn 
down the four remaining of- 
fers for Land Rover, and that 
BL's new management would 
prepare the company for pri- 
vatization. through sale or 
flotation. 


29 workers seized

ers, including two Britons, at a

Local voting pointer to 
general election as 
Falklands factor fades 


By Colin Hughes, Whitehall Correspondent 


' Local elections next week 
* will see the Falklands factor 
. finally dismissed from British 
. politics and an? likely to be a 
I better test of party popularity 
.than simultaneous parliamen- 
tary by-elections at Ryedale 
and West Derbyshire. 

The Conservatives arc 
heavily on the defensive, 
standing to lose control of 
about fifteen councils. Most 
gains will go to Labour, but 
"the key figure to watch is the 
Alliance poll. 

After Fulham, the Alliance 
is under pressure to prove to 
voters and its own activists 
-that general election gains are 
on the cards. Failure to regis- 
ter a significant poll would 
undermine party morale. 

There are good signs for the 
Alliance. Liberal organization 
for local elections is good, and 
the party tends to poll rather 
better than at national 
elections. 

Several Labour councils run 
by more extreme left wingers 
have brought discredit on 
some of its local party organi- 
zations. most conspicuously 
in Liverpool and Lambeth, 
south London, where council- 
lors face surcharge and dis- 
qualification from office, even 
if they are re-elected. That 
factor is also likely to benefit 
Social Democrat candidates. 

About 5.300 seats are being 
contested in 207 councils. 

The .Alliance bolds 1.100 of 


them, and has set itself the 
ambitious taigel of gaining 
600 to 700 more. Its strongest 
chances are in London bor- 
oughs: five million voters are 
eligible to turn out in more 
than 90 parliamentary 
constituencies. 

Most vulnerable is Tower 
Hamlets, now Labour-con- 
trolled but viewed as a "rotten 
borough” by the SDP. which 
may take advantage of inter- 
nal Labour strife and organi- 
zational difficulties to steal 
control. 

Labour needs to prove itself 
the one and only contender for 
alternative power at the next 
general election. 

The minimum to achieve 
that would be a score of more 
than 37 per cent of the vote -on 
May 8, taking control of at 
least 15 councils which are 
noweithcr hung or in Conser- 
vative control. 

Their greatest advantage is 
that the last time these seats 
were fought, in 1982, the 
Belgian o was recently sunk

Mrs Margaret Thatcher has. 
this month, paid out her 
Falklands cheque to the 
American President over Lib- 
ya. inclining opinion poll 
penalties which the opposition 


is hoping will pay out in its 
favour. 

That means it must at the 
very least win councils which 
were either traditionally La-

usually marginal. 

If Labour fail to gain Brent

London, or Bury, BrisloL

chances of attaining a major-

will look slim indeed. 

Conservative campaign 
managers are dearly reckon- 
ing on damage limitation, 
knowing that mid-term elec- 
tions need to be favourable to 
Labour to cause serious heart- 
searching at Central Office. 

Conservatives, still affected 
in Scotland by rates revalua- 
tion, may also lose control in 
Grampian and Tayside. 

The Inner London Educa-

are being contested in the 12

certain to become a Labour 
majority. 

Of the ten metropolitan 
districts up for full re-election 
(Birmingham, Dudley, Gates-

North and South Tyneside, 
Salford, Sunderland and 
Wakefield), only Dudley is 
likely to change control to 
Labour.

By-election hopes 
rise for Alliance 


By Philip Webster, Political Reporter 


Early canvassing by the 
Liberals has shown lhal the 
West Derbyshire and Ryedale 
by-elections are winnable, ac- 
cording to the party's new 
general secretary. 

Mr Andy Ellis urged Alli- 
ance MPs to do their bit at a 
private meeting at Westmin- 
sier last Wednesday. 

Mr Ellis, a formidable and 
feared organizer, who has 
received much of the credit for 
some of the Alliance's most 
unexpected by-election tri- 
umphs. is listened to. and does 
not make rash claims. 

He is commuting almost 
daily between the Alliance 
headquarters at Malton. 
North Yorkshire, and Mat- 
lock. Derbyshire, bullying 
supporters into ever greater 
efforts. 

But the Government’s deci- 
sion to call the elections on 
May 8. the same day as the 
local elections, has stretched 
Alliance resources. Many 
volunteers who would nor- 
mally be working in the by- 
elections are contesting 
council seats and fighting their 
own campaigns. 

The activity demanded by 

• Mr Ellis indicates the impor- 
tance the Alliance attaches to 
the by-elections, particulary 
after the Fulham disappoint- 
'menL 

• Failure would almost cer- 
tainly damage the Alliance 

■more than would a poor result 
lharm the Government. If at a 


time of government unpopu- 
larity because of the Libyan 
raid the Alliance was unable to 
get at least a good second place 
in both by-elections gloom 
would descend. 

As the campaign enters its 
last full week, there is a certain 
buoyancy in the' .Alliance 
camps, particularly in Rye- 
dale. 

The Libyan factor is un- 
doubtedly the key non-local 
issue, but the parties are 
deeply uncertain about its 
likely effect on the outcome. 
Random surveys suggest 
many Conservative voters 
were’ deeply opposed to the 
Government's role. 

The Tory candidates, Mr 
Patrick McLoughlin, aged 28, 
aformer miner, ■'who is fighting 
West Derbyshire, and Mr Neil 
Balfour, a merchant banker 
and former Euro-MP, who is 
contesting Ryedale, are offer- 
ing full backing for Mrs 
Thatcher. 

If Mr Bill Moore, the La- 
bour candidate in West Der- 
byshire, is right, the Tories are 
correct to take a hard line. He 
believes that at times of crisis 
political support tends to po- 
larize. Alliance opponents of 
the raid will switch their vote 
to Labour. But that would 
almost certainly make the 
Conservatives safe.

Guns Bred 
at IRA 
funeral 


With bine lights flashing as they 
dashed about their business, Thames 
Valley police were potting themselves 
under scrutiny on Saturday night by a 
group of young black people interested 
in joining the force. 

Police officers and potential reermts 
had raced to a discotheque after a 
report of titrable, had driven handcuffed 
ding suspects to hospital and had seen a 
football fan have his fingerprints taken 
at Reading police station. 

A drunk was shooting incoherently as 
the young black people paused in a cell 
to see what it was like. 

It had been a busy 1 day — ideal to 
show the nature of police work to young 
black people considering whether to 
take the plunge. 

Third Division Reading were playing 
Derby County in a top-of- the- table 
(football dash and Pc Nigel Isaac, aged 
27, a Mack officer with only 18 months 
of service, had helped to keep visiting 


fans at bay with just three colleagues. 

He had left school at 15, and had 
scraped into the force at 5ft Bin talL 
Although he has no academic qualifica- 
tions he has a medal ribbon for Army 
service in Northern Ireland and is 
considered bright. 

Though most of the young blacks said 
that theft friends supported than in 
their interest in joining the police, it was 
harder for some. 

“My best friend stopped speaking to 
me,” said Granville Williams, aged 17. 
Granville is a volunteer cadet 


Miss Dawn little, aged 21, said that 
her boyfriend, who is black, was 
shocked when she told him of her 
interest 


Miss Sharon Haye, aged 19, was in a 
car called to a domestic dispnte and to a 
school- There was a radio message, she 
said, reporting that an intruder was 
smashing glass. A window was open but 


there was no smashed glass. “It didn't 
look as if anyeee.was mere, she said.” 

Miss Colleen Young, aged 16. said 
after her night with a crew: “I am going 
to join the cadets.? 

By the end of the night Pc Isaac had 
been on duty for 13 horns, partly to help 
show the yotmg blacks the ropes. His toe 
caps were no longer shixung-brightJy tat 
his eyes were.

Masked men fired three 
volleys of shots yesterday over 
the coffin of a Provisional 
IRA killer and Maze escaper 
who died after a brief gun 
battle with undercover sol- 
diers near the border with the 
Irish Republic. 

The masked men joined the 
funeral cortege after it crossed 
into the Irish Republic and the 
shots were fired near the home 
of Seamus McElwaine in Co 
Monaghan. The crowd was so 
large that the Gardai could not 
get within 300 yards of the 
coffin. 

The soldiers had surprised 
McElwaine. aged 25, one of| 
the Provisionals’ leading | 
“volunteers”, and a colleague 
as they prepared an 8001b 
bomb, intended for the securi- 
ty forces, in a field in Co 
Fermanagh early on Saturday. 

McElwaine had been under I 
surveillance for some time! 
because, since he escaped with 
38 other prisoners from the 
Maze jail in 1 983, he had been 
suspected of leading a Provi- 1

Early-release call 
to help prisons 


By Oar Home Affairs Correspondent 


The release of short-term 
non-violent prisoners within 
the last six months of their 
sentence is part of a 10-point 
programme proposed today 
by the Parliamentary All- 
Party Penal Affaire Group to 
reduce the prison population. 

There should be tighter 
restrictions on courts’ powers 
to pass prison sentences and 
increased resources for 
choices other than prison, the 
group says in a report. The 
Rising Prison Population. 

The prison population of 
England and Wales on April 
1 1 was 46.687, which was 800 
more than at this time last 
year and over 2,000 more than 
two years ago. 

More than a third of those 
m custody spend most of 
every 24 hours in an over- 
crowded cell, without access 
to decent sanitation. The 
group says: “These conditions 
are intolerable in a civilized 
society”. 

The Government's big pris- 
on building programme will 
provide no relief if simply 
filled with increasing numbers 
of additional prisoners. 

The proportion of adult 
males convicted of indictable 
offences who were imprisoned 


or 


rose from 15 per cent in 1974 
to 20 per cent in 1984. Yet 
fewer than one in five have 
committed crimes involving 
violence, sex, robbery 
drugs. 

Apart from executive re- 
lease, the group wants: 

• Statutory guidelines for cus- 
tody to be improved and 
extended to adults; 

• A supervised release 
scheme for short-term 
prisoners; 

• Fewer remand prisoners; 

• Less imprisonment of fine 
defaulters; 

• An end to the freeze on 
Home Office grant aid 
hostels; 

• A crash programme of new 
attendance centres; 

• Reform of central govern- 
ment funding to deal with 
problem drug users and 
drinkers; 

• More encouragement for 
development of reparation 
schemes nationwide; 

• Suitable offenders to attend 
day detention centres on 
Saturdays.

Query for Hurd on Libyans 


By Colin Hughes 


Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary, will this 
week face opposition ques- 
tioning over allegations that 
two ofthe 22 Libyans expelled 
from Britain last week were 
known to be connected with 
terrorist activities. 

Labour MPs want to know 
why Mr Fawzi El Giemazi and 
Mr Muhammad A1 Aswad 
were allowed into Britain in 
the first place. 

Mr El Giaroazi, a language 
student, was expelled from the 
United States in 1983 for 
suspected connections with 
terrorists, and Mr At Aswad 
from Italy the year before 
because he was linked with a 
Rome murder. 

A Home Office spokesman 
said: “Such people are under 
close scrutiny and their activi- 
ties followed. Until last week 
the Home Secretary had not 
been involved. Security mat- 
ters affecting particular indi- 
viduals are not something we 
would ever discuss. 

“However, as regards the 
group of 22 Libyans, the 
Home Secretary decided. 


when the facts were reported terrorism, “levying war 
to him, that their presence was against the Queen in her own

The position appears to be 
confused. Yesterday the De- 
partment of Trade and Indus- 
try said: “We have no reason 
to believe any contracts will be 
cancelled." 

The Ministry of Defence 
said sales of "offensive” de- 
fence equipment were stopped 
after the shooting of WPC 
Yvonne Fletcher in 1984, but 
the United Kingdom had 
continued with its contractual 
obligations for non-letbal 
equipment 

However, 10 Downing 
Street refused to rule out the 
possibility of contracts being 
cancelled.

Secrets of the jewels 


‘Model’ village faces bleak future without mill 


By John Young 


The future of one of 
Britain's largest industrial vil- 
lages has been clouded by the 
closure of the huge mill that 
forms its centrepiece. 

Saltaire, on toe outskirts of 
Bradford, in West Yorkshire, 
was built by the industrialist 
and philanthropist, Sir Thus 
Salt, in toe middle of toe last 
century. It was seen as a model 
of enlightened paternalism in 
an area where bousing condi- 
tions were notoriously bad 
even by toe standards of toe 
time. 

“Every improvement that 
modern art and science have 
brought to light have to be put 
in requisition in the erection of 


the model town of Saltaire *% 
the Illustrated London News 
reported in 1853.

“Healthy dwellings and gar- 
dens in wide streets and 
capacious squares — ample 
ground for recreation, a large 
dining hall and kitchens — 
baths and wash-houses, 
schools, a mechanics' institu- 
tion, a church; these are some 
of the characteristics of toe 
future town of Saltaire.” 


At its peak, the mill em- 
ployed nearly 4,000 people. Its 
dimensions ware vast, with a 
frontage measuring S45 feet 


will became a derelict eyesore 
in the middle of a conservation 
area fat which all the original 
buildings are listed as of 
historic interest. 


Nearly a century later. Sir 
James Richards, former archi- 
tectural correspondent of The 
Tunes described it as “the 
incarnation of the three Vic- 
torian ideals of cleanliness. 


Sir Titus made bis fortune 
mid reputation by his mastery 

or the processing of the wool of 

toe alpaca, a native of Pern, 
and it was estimated that toe 
total length of doth produced 
in one year would stretch from 
Saltaire to Peru. 


The conservation group 
Save Britain’s Heritage held a 
seminar on Friday to dismiss 
the null's future. 


But the final shifts were 
worked last February ami 
there are fears that the mill 


It is considered for too 
important historically to be 
demolished, as so many West 
Yorkshire mills have been. It 
has been suggested that it

Doctors, face scrutiny 



as 

private care costs rise 


By Nicholas Timm ins, Sodotl Services Correspondent 

Doctors are to fece tougher to use high-cost treatments for lently out of line 

which a higher fee can be

■ft- 


sc rutiny of whether they are 
referring private patients for 
□nuecessarfly expensive or 
lengthy treatment as the costs 
.of private medical care contin- 
ue to s oar. 

* Subscriptions for at least 
some private health inninmq e 
plans win rise again in July. 

The two largest insurers, the 
British United Provident As- 
sociation ^and Private Patients 
Kan, estimate that increases 
in doctors’ fees, private hospi- 
tal charges, more claims and 
increasing use of high technol- 
ogy are pushing up the cost of 
private care at between 15 and 
1 8 per cent a year. =• 

Mr Bob Graham, chief exec- 
utive of Bupa, said at the 
weekend that doctors must 
‘refer, private patients for the 
most economical' effective 
treatment, and “not just the 
latest and most expensive”. 

While respecting the special 
nature of the doctor-patient 
relationship and the difficult 
decisions that sometimes 
meant for the doctor, he said, . 
greater awareness of cost im- 
plications was called for. 

Bupa and PPP are building 
databases of individual 
doctor's referral patterns so 
that actifn can be taken if 
doctors are found consistently ' 


charged when a simpler proce- 
dure would do, or ii they refer 
patients to unnecessarily ex- 
pensive private hospitals. 

Mr Graham said; “The new 
data is already beginning to 
mate specialists think twice 
before embarking on a partic- 
ular course of treatment and 
in a particular hospital.” 

Last month, Mr Roy. 
Forman, chief executive of 
PPP, issued a warning against 
the “if you are insured, screw 
the insurer for all you can get 
out ofhim** mentality. He said 
the PPP was “adopting a more- 
questioning stance on what is 
a reasonable charge and 
whether a treatment was nec- 
essarily incurred”. 

A spokesman for Bupa said 
surgeons were using expensive 
laser treatments for some 
surgical procedures, for exam- 
ple, when studies su^ested 
old-fashioned surgery was 
both cheaper and more 
effective. 

Doctors were ordering ex- 
pensive investigations in cases 
where others did not feel they 
were needed and there had 
been a rapid growth in the use 
of intensive- care beds in 
private hospitals. 

“When a doctor is coosis- 


out of line with the 
types or expense of treatment 
he is providing or uses costly 
high technology procedures 
significantly more frequently 
than his colleagues, we would 
contact him and put the facts 
to him for an explanation,” 
the Bupa spokesman said. 

“Where a company on re- 
newing its policy found claims 
were high because a particular 
doctor was overcharging we 
would advise them of that and 
they might well tell their 
employees to steer clear of 
him to keep the premiums 
down. 

“With the vast majority of 
donors there is no problem. 
But there are always 
mavericks.” 

Mr David Cavers, PPP 
commercial manager, said it 
was building a database on 
individual doctor’s treatment 
and referral patterns. It would 
soon allow PPP to cross-check 
“which specialists can be 
shown to overcharge consis- 
tently or which hospitals and 
Specialists somehow persis- 
tently have a longer period of 
stay in hospital for a given 
procedure than others”. 

Bupa and PPP last raised 
their subscriptions in January 
by an average of about 10 per 
cent.

Arson inquiry at 
Hampton Court 

By Colin Hughes, Whitehall Correspondent 


Scotland Yard's fraud 
squad is investigating the 
theory that arsonists started 
the Hampton Court fire in an 
attempt to cover trades in a 
corruption inquiry. 

' The Governments Proper- 
ty. Services Agency Afofinned 
yesterday 4hat tbeYgnTs. pub- 
lic sector corruption unit had. 
Tor some time” before the 
Ere, been investigating alleged 
fraud among Civil Servants 
handling contracts for repair 
and renovation of the pates. 

At first it was assumed that 
the fire had started accidental- 
ly in the "grace and favour” 
apartment of Lady Gale, wid- 
ow of General Sir Richard 
Gale, who was in the habit of 
falling asleep with a candle 
burning in her room. 

It is now suspected that 
arsonists may have started the 
fire-in the Cartoon Gallery is 
the Christopher Wren south 
wiqg which lies directly below 
her room, and was severely 
damaged, to destroy evidence 


connected with work being 
done by contractors on the 
gallery. 

A government inquiry into 
the palace's fire precautions, 
headed by Sir John Gariick, a 
mired Department of Envi- 
ronment permanent secretary, : 
has found that a smoke detec- 
tor in Lady Gale’s room 
appears to have foiled and that 
the fire was discovered only 
when an intruder alarm went 
offi 

The Department of the 
Environment, however, 
would say yesterday only that 
inquiries were continuing and 
that it could not comment in 
detail until Sir John’s report is 
complete. 

Police officers are also in- 
vestigating the suspected sui- 
cide of Mr Geoige lodge, a fire 
patrolman at the palace, 
whose body was found float- 
ing in the River Thames three 
days after the fire on Easter 
Monday.

Nature fears for Dungeness 


By Hugh Clayton 
Environment Correspondent 

Dungeness, a bleak Kent 
promontory with unique colo- 
nies of bumble bees and 
moths, is emerging as the next 
big battleground between con- 
servationists and developers. 

Scientists at the Nature 
Conservancy Council believe 
that the millions of scarce 
creatures, including unusual 
ants and spiders that swarm 
over the bleak shingle ridges 
make Dungeness a "conserva- 


tion site of unique national 
importance”. 

Dr Keith Daft, head of 
geography at the council, said 
“The council is coming to the 
conclusion that there is no 
more room for compromise.” 

Its scientists fear that the 
character of the promontory is 
threatened by proposals to 
extend the Dungeness power 
station complex and to build 
the Channel Tunnel near by. 

Two varieties of moth with 
pale wings that blend with the 
shingle are not found any- 



where else in the world. A 
scarce weevil found at. 
Dungeness cannot be investi- 
gated fully because it lives in 
the roots of a protected yellow 
poppy which it is illegal to dig 
up. 

“The- opportunities for 
more unusual things to be 
discovered are enormous” Dr 
Pat Doody, coastal ecologist 
with the council, said. He said 
that the ridges that give 
Dungeness its character had 
been formed over the past 
5,000 years by tidal pressure. 

Now well over a third of the 
ridges with plants growing on 
them have bon destroyed by 
firing ranges, gravel digging 
and the establishment of a 
nuclear power complex. 

Scientists at the council, the 
Government’s wildlife watch- 
dog, fear that gravel excava- 
tion elsewhere for Channel 
Tunnel development will cre- 
ate pressure to open new pits 
at Dungeness. 

Council scientists say that 
the value of Dungeness to 
naturalists will be threatened 
if the habitat is divided into a 
collection of separate patches 
instead of the present wide 
spread of shingle. 


Contested divorces made easier 

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 


Contested divorces wfll be- 
come cheaper and qnteter to 
obtain under changes in matri- 
monial law which come into 
force today. 

Until now connty coarts 
could bear uncontested suits, 

bat contested ones had to go to 

the High Coart or one of 20 
High Court centres outside 
London where there » a much 
logger waiting Kst and easts 
are higher. ... . 

Frra today, ISO 
county courts will be awe to 
bear defended as vtSL as 

undefended divorces. 

.The changes are lately to 

hdveabenefi^hniactoatbe 

legal aid bill where disputes 


over finance, custody and ac- 
cess arising from divorce are 
one of the biggest drains on 
funds. 

They will also mean a step 
towards rationalization of the 
coarts' family busine s s at a 
time when pressure is increas- 
ing fora single family court. 

The changes are in line with 
a . recommendation made by 
the Law Commission in 1981 
which said that the procedures 
of courts handin g matrimo- 
nial eases should be consid- 
ered for reform. 

After public consultation, 
the Lord Chancellor brought 
in the Family and Matrimo- 
nial Proceedings Bill, part of 


which is aimed at reforming 
the distribution of family busi- 
ness between the High and 
connty courts. 

The President of the Family 
Division and the Lord Chan- 
cellor are to issse directions on 
the detailed effect of the 
changes. The policy wfli be 
that, as far as possible, family 
matters are heard by the 
appropriate level of judge. 

The changes will affect the 
whole spectrum of family busi- 
ness. For example, ft wfli now 
be possible to transfer a 
wardship case to a county 
court when the . main issues, 
such as access, have been 
settled.

Food facts found in rubbish 


Expensive market research 
surveys into what people eat or 
drink are a waste of time and 
money; for more can be 
teamed by sifting through 
thefr dustbins, according to an 
American professor. 

Professor WOlfaun Rathje, 
Professor of Anthropology at 
tiie University of Arizona, 
says that people rarely tell the 
truth about -their eating hab- 
its— especially those of which 
they are ashamed. 

For example, “garbolog- 
ists” in Green Valley, Arizona, 


By John Young 
discovered that residents eat 
20 times more chocolate and 
15 times more pastries than 
they admitted in a consumer 
survey. In another poU, in 
Tucson 85 per cent of those 
questioned said they did not 
drink beer, but three-quarters 
of all dustbins inspected con- 
tained beer cans. 

Professor Ratbje's conclu- 
sions were reported to a con- 
vention of grocery manu- 
facturers in Montreal and 
pa Mis bed in the latest issue of 
The Grocer. 


One of the Professor's most 
bizarre findings was that in 
Marin County, California, the 
county with the highest family 
incomes in the United 
States, people were throwing 
out boxes that had contained 
expensive Scotch whisky but 
not the bottles. He concluded 
that they were buying cheaper 
whisky and potting it into the 
“prestige” bottles. 

• The British trend towards 
healthier eating is condoning 
with more money befog spent 
on food, but less on red meats. 



Plea for 
reform on 
choice of 
judges 

By Frances Gibb 
Legal Affairs Correspondent 

Public support for moves to 
reform the system of appoint- 
ing judges lake it out of the 
hands of Civil Servants comes 
today from the vice-chairman 
of the Bar. 

Mr Peter Scott, QC, who is 
expected to be the Bar's next 
chairman, says that there are 
“some disturbing elements in 
the present system which need 
to be looked at.” 

He puts forward the possi- 
bility of a new Judicial Ap- 
pointments Board, with the 
Lord Chancellor or Attorney 
General as chairman, and 
including judges, members of 
the Bar, solicitors and laymen. 

Increasingly barristers are 
questioning the present sys- 
tem, under which power to 
elect judges is concentrated in 
“one pair of hands", those of 
the Lord Chancellor, he says 
in an article in the Bar's 
magazine. Counsel. 

Pressure for change at the 
Bar has been fuelled by its 
recent legal action against the 
Lord Chancellor, which 
brought barristers in front of 
judges “who included those 
appointed by him and those 
whose prospects of promotion 
depended on him.” Mr Scott 
says. 

Previous proposals to re- 
form the system made in 1972 
by Justice, the law reform 
group, did not go far enough. 
Mr Scott argues. 

In the same article he 
comments on the Bat's action 
against the Lord Chancellor 
over legal aid fees and says it 
conveyed an unmistakable 
message to those in 
government. 

“I believe that they now 
realize that the days when 
their own ignorance could be 
obscured by meaningless am- 
biguities and stalling tactics 
are over for good."

Genetic engineering: 1 


‘Risk profile’ helps in checking 
tendency to inherited illnesses 


A cure for some inherited 
illnesses is in sight, using 
genetic therapy. Within the 
next 12 months doctors are 
expected to attempt a remedy 
■by giving a person a new gene 
to replace a defective one. 

- In tentative steps to move 
from the laboratory to the 
clinic, the treatment will be for 
two or three of the rarest 
inherited diseases. 

Doctors at the Children’s 
Hospital in Boston and the 
Children's Hospital in Los 
Angeles are among the four 
leading American research 
groups expected to ask for 
permission for clinical trials 
later this year. 

The first condition they are 
Hkely to treat makes children 
vulnerable to any and every 
infection. The infants have to 
live in sterile conditions. They 
have no natural immunity 
simply because they fail to 
produce just one of the thou- 
sands of molecules essential to 
the body's biochemistry. It is 
an enzyme called adenosine 
deaminase. 

Few genetic disorders can 
be treated effectively. In Brit- 
ain the emphasis of medical 
research is on prevention. 
Medical teams here will wait 
for the results of the American 
experiments. 

In the meantime they con- 
tinue pioneering methods for 
earlier diagnosis of genetic 


Early in the 1980s, Dr 
Martin Cline, at the 
University of California, 
created a new strain of 
mice by inserting foreign 
genes token from another 
strain. Shortly after, a 
gene that regulates the 
production of human 


growth hormone was 
spliced into another breed 
to produce a mutant strain 
10 tunes as big. In the 
first of a three-part series 
Pearce Wright, - Science 
Editor, reports on die way 
those advances are hefyn 
ing doctors and patients. 


Williamson's laboratory at St 
Mary’s Hospital, London, of 
analysing placental tissue, 
called chorionic villi, diag- 
noses can be made at an early 


disorders. Recent advances 
make the outlook of substitut- 
ing a healthy gene for an 
inactive or missing one 
favourable for only a limited 
number of conditions. 

Genetic illness has become 
increasingly important as in- 
fectious diseases have been 
eliminated in the Western 
countries. 

More than 40 per cent of the 
paediatric beds in hospital are 
for children with some form of 
congenital disorder. 

It was against that back- 
ground that a conference at 
the Royal Postgraduate Medi- 
cal School, in London, was 
aimed at gening information 
about the prospects for quick- 
er diagnosis and treatment out 
of the laboratory and into the 
hands of the non-specialist 
doctors. 

There are more than 2.000 
known illnesses attributed to 
genetic faults. Employing the 
latest tricks of molecular biol- 
ogy, Lhe exact flaw has been 
isolated for about 10 of them. 


But genetic studies are 
showing how to produce a 
“risk profile" for individuals 
of all sorts of things, including 
inherited tendencies to high 
levels of cholesterol and coro- 
naries. In future a woman may 
ask a man for his genetic 
profile before she agrees to 
marry him. 

Ten years ago it was impos- 
sible to study human genes in 
the laboratory. Now. thanks to 
the development of the tech- 
nology known as recombinant 
DNA. it is possible to extract 
single genes from human cells. 

But the question of combat- 
ting inherited illness goes far 
beyond pinpointing which is 
the troublesome one of a 
million or so genes, and there 
are identical sets in all the cells 
of the body with the exception 
of the sperm and egg cells. 

There are trials in the UK. 
with new assays, or gene 
probes, for doing this. When 
they are used with a method 
developed in Professor Bob 


iking at the tissue to see 
whether a particular gene is 
present or missing uses the 
Southern Mot test, developed 
by Dr Ed Southern of Edin- 
burgh University. 


Such tests, costing about 
£400 compared with £5,000 to 
£10,000 a year for treatment 
that only ameliorates but can- 
not cure the condition, may be 
done at eight weeks after 
conception. 

Individual probes or mark- 
ers have to be devised to lock 
on to a specific gene. One of 
the first was for diagnosing the 
mentally debilitating illness , 
Huntington's Chorea. Pio- 
neered at the Massachusetts 
General Hospital, the tech- 
nique is employed by Dr Peter 
Haiper at the Welsh National 
School of Medicine. 

Professor David 

Weatherall’s team at the John 
Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford, 
concentrates on the abnormal 
conditions of the blood known 
as baemoglobinopethies, or 
conditions in which some- 
thing is wrong with the oxy- 
gen-carrying job of the blood.

United stand likely at Tokyo 

and Chirac 





on terrorism 


- ‘Britain and France' have 
. $ ’agreed on the need for West- 
ern countries to take tougher 
treasures to deal with iifterna- 
4xooa] terrorism. 

. "L, At a “eetiiw between Mrs 
Thatcher and M Jacques 
■Chirac, her French counter- 
part at Chequerson Saturday, 
the two leaders also empha- 
sized the need for Western 
nations to maintain a com- 
mon position on terrorism. 

It was M . Chirac's first 
meeting with- Mrs Thatcher 
since he became Prime 
Minister. 

' The outcoine means that 
■the way is now dear for the 
seven industrialized nations — 
^ Britain, Fiance, the US, "West 
' Germany. Italy, Canada and 
Japan — to issue a strongly 
Worded statement on terror- 
ism at their summit which 
opens in Tokyo next Sunday. 

. . -The French had been op- 
posed to a new declaration on 
terrorism at Tokyo, believing 
that the summit should con- 
centrate on economic iss ues 
However, they dedded to 
withdraw their objectionsfol- 
towiag recent terrorist out- 
rages in Europe and the US 
reprisal raid against Libya. 

It is- unclear, however. 


Whether the Tokyo dedara- 
-iton will refer to" Libya by 
paine as a sponsor of interna- 
tional terrorism. The Ameri- 

cans want to, so do the British; 

. Japanese, who are 

large importers of Libyan oil, 
are opposed. - ■ 

The Reagan Administration 
has drawn up a five-point plan 
of ‘ action which ' is being 
supported by Mrs Thatcher. 

It calls for improved extra- 
ction procedures between 
.summit countries, stricter visa 
requirements for citizens of 
states that support terrorism, a 
global blacklist of diplomats 
and others with known links 
to terrorist organizations, a 
ban on. arms sales to countries 
that back terrorist organiza- 
tions and closer co-operation 
between national security au- 
thorities. 

In Tokyo President Reagan 
will make' the point that, 
unless there is agreement on 
tough new anti-terrorist mea- 
sures, the'US might find itself 
having to carry out further 
Libyan-style reprisal raids — 
something the other partici- 
pants are anxious to prevent 

He wfi] also emphasize the 
need for Western countries to 
maintain a united front and 


. avoid a „ repetition of the 
damaging public row that 
followed the punitive strike 
against Libya. 

At their Chequers meeting. 
Mrs Thatcher and - M Chirac 
agreed to disagree on the 
American bombing of Libya. 
“I think she understood that 
we donol have the samepoint 
of view and took a different 
position from the British," M 
Chirac said, “but that doesn’t 
make any problems between 
Britain and France." 

M Chirac dearly anxious to 
dispel charges that France was 
“soft on terrorists”, spent 
some time telling Mrs Thatch- 
er about tite measures bis 
Government was talking ag- 
ainst Libya: These include 
restricting the movement of 
staff from Libyan People’s 
Bureaux in France tightening 
up on visa applications by 
Libyans, and reducing the 
number of French diplomats 
in Tripoli. 

During their three-hour 
meeting the two Prime Minis- 
ters also talked about Europe- 
an issues, • especially the 
growing trade war between the 
US and the European Com- 
munity, South Africa, and the 
Channel tunneL

their Spanish base only three 
days before. El Pais, .the

It said it based its report on 
a Spanish air force inquiry. 

The transfer was intended 
by the Americans to take 
Spain out of the air raid 
controversy, the newspaper 
quoted defence sources as 
saying. 

Before the air strikes, the 
Madrid Government repeat- 
edly made clear its refusal to

Rome cuts 
Tripoli’s 
mission 

' From Peter Nichols 
Rome 

. The Libyan diplomatic mis- 
sion here has been instructed 
to reduce its staff by 10. and 
those that remain will be 
limited in their activities. 

At the moment the Libyan 
representation consists of 40 
people in- Rome and another 
seven in consulates in Paler- 
mo and Milan. 

In future the Libyan diplo- 
mats will have to stay within 
the limit of the local province 
in which they work unless they 
are granted a special permit to 
go beyond- the provincial 
boundaries. 

Fiurificino Airport, which 
has been the scene of many 
terrorist attacks, is considered 
to be within the Rome 
province. 

Controls on diplomatic cou- 
riers from Libya and from 
other countries involved m 
terrorism will be reinforced. 
These other countries are 
understood to be Syria, Iran, 
the two Yemens and possibly 
Iraq. 

Entry for Libyan citizens, 
whether diplomats or not,. will 
be scrutinized more closely. 


Smites set the tone at the weekend meeting at Chequers between M Jacques Chirac, the new 
French Prime Minister, and Mrs Thatcher. 


Police ask 
for help 
on Lyons 
attacks 

From Susan MacDonald 
Paris 

The Chief Commissioner of 
the Lyons police, M Alain 
Jezequel. has appealed to the 
public for information about 
the bombing of the American 
Express office and the killing 
of Mr Kenneth Marston. Brit- 
ish managing director of the 
Lyons-based American com- 
pany Blade and Decker. 

A violent explosion, fol- 
lowed by a fire, destroyed the 
American Express office in the 
Part-Dieu district of Lyons 
early on Saturday. One person 
was slightly injured by flying 
glass 

On the garage wall in the 
basement of the building, 
which also houses the offices 
of the multinational company 
Control Data, was scrawled 
the message “Black and Deck- 
er. Control Data. American 
Express — US go home". 

• Despite two. telephone calls 
to news agencies by a person 
with a Middle Eastern French 
accent, referring to Mr Mar- 
ston’s killing and the Ameri- 
can Express bombing in the 
name of the Arab Revolution- 
ary Front, Lyons police are 
unwilling to fink them 

It had been thought that die 
shooting of Mr Marston, out- 
side his front door as he left 
for work early Friday room- 
ing, could have been either a 
terrorist act or have some 
connection with recent bur- 
glaries at Black and Decker in 
Lyons. 


US recalls its 
key Sudan 
embassy staff 

Khartoum — The United 
States Embassy here will this 
week evacuate 30 officials who 
are described as “essential 
personnel", indicating con- 
tinuing fears for the security of 
Americans in the Sudanese 
capita] (Gill Lusk writes). 

Earlier this month, an em- 
bassy communications officer, 
was shot dead here in the wake 
of the US raid on Libya. A 
total of 265 “non-essential 
staff" — dependants and pri- 
vate citizens — have already 
been airlifted oul 

It is understood that this 
latest move reflects US con- 
cern that the Sudanese Gov- 
ernment has done little to 
increase the safety of Ameri- 
can, British and other Western 
interests.

Tussle over body 
of Transkei chief 

From Ray Kennedy, Johannesburg 


A bitter legal battle is being 
fought in South Africa's 
-independent" homeland of 
Transkei over the snatching of 
a chiefs body. 

Relatives of Paramount 
Chief Sabata Dalindyebo, of 
|- the Tembu clan, want bis 
body exhumed and returned 
to Zambia “for a decern 
burial”. 

The chief known as the 
“Comrade King”, was an 
African National Congress 
leader and cousin of Mr 
Nelson Mandela. He died on 
April 7 in Zambia, where he 
bad lived m self-exile. _ 
Transkei officials said they 
would -allow him to be buried' 
at his birthplace near Umiaia, 
the Transkei capital But after 
the body arrived they an- 
nounced severe restrictions on 
the funeral . . „ 

Angry relatives, including 
Mrs Winnie Mandela, ob- 
tained a Transfcei Supreme 
Coun order that the body 
should remain in a funeral 
parlour. But Chief Kaiser 
Maianzima, the former Trans- 


kei President and a rival of the 
“Comrade King” before his 
exile, arrived at the funeral 
parlour and took it away. 

The chiefs coffin was load- 
ed into a pick-up truck and a 
few hours later was buried in 
the presence of homeland 
officials and about 300 Trans- 
kei soldiers and police. 

Chief Sabata’s relatives, in- 
cluding Mrs Mandela, stayed 
away and met lawyers to 
discuss legal redress. But in a 
further complication the Su- 
preme Court ordered them to 
show why their application to 
exhume the body should not 
be withdrawn because of fraud 
and misrepresentation. 

The bearing has been post- 
poned until May 15. The 
Sabata family lawyers say that, 
attempts to secure the services 
of nearly even, senior counsel 
in Souih Africa have been 
unsuccessful. 

In any event, they point out, 
under Transkei Jaw any appli- 
cation for exhumation has to 
be submitted to, and approved 
by. the Interior Minister. 


Athens out of step 
on EEC sanctions 

From Mario Modiaao, Athens 


Greece's European partners, 
-as well as the United States. 
Jare disturbed and puzzled by 
the Greek Government's re- 
luctance to abide by the 
Community's decision to im- 
pose sanctions against Libya. 

The strength of the Ameri- 
can feeling was conveyed last 
week to Mr Andreas Pap- 
andreou, the Socialist Prime 
Minister. It was combined 
with concern that this attitude 
might hurt Greek efforts to 
improve relations with the 
United Slates or to secure 
Western support to overcome 
its serious economic and secu- 
rity problems. 

Now the European Com- 
munity has decided to repri- 
mand the Greeks about their 
attitude. 

The Dutch presidency, and 
also individual members, are 


known to be planning to 
question the Greek Govern- 
ment this week about its 
refusal to implement the re- 
stricted EEC measures on 
Lib> an diplomats, although it 
unreservedly endorsed last 
Monday's unanimous deci- 
sion b> the Community to 
th3i effect. 

The Greek Government 
stated that it would not im- 
pose such sanctions until 
“tangible evidence" of Libyan 
involvement in specific terror- 
ist acts was produced. 

The American displeasure 
was made known personally 
to Mr Papandreou by Mr 
Robert Kecley. the United 
Slates Ambassador, on Fri- 
day. and also 24 hours earlier 
by the State Department to the 
Greek Ambassador in Wash- 
ington. 


US may 
deport 
ex-IRA 
member 

From Michael Binyon 
Washington 

A former IRA man wanted 
in Britain for his alleged role 
in the 1974 bombing of a 
Yorkshire barracks could be 
deported from the United 
States to Northern Ireland, 
after a Federal Appeals Coun 
ruling in San Francisco that he 
is not eligible for political 
asylum in the US. 

Mr Peter McMullen, who 
desened from the British 
Army in 1972 and has been 
living in the San Francisco 
Bay area since 1979, was 
arrested by the IIS authorities, 
but freed on bond after a 
magistrate blocked his extra- 
dition to Britain. 

But on Friday, 3 lhree-man 
panel of the San Francisco 
coun cleared the way for his 
extradition. 

The panel's ruling can be 
challenged with an appeal to 
the full court or taken to the 
US Supreme Court. 

According to the court doc- 
ument. Mr McMullen joined 
the Provisional IRA after his 
desertion from the Army. 

The ruling, which will be 
welcomed both by ihc Reagan 
Administration 3nd Britain, 
comes after President Reagan 
appealed personally to the 
Senate to pass a revised 
extradition treaty with Brit- 
ain. making it easier to extra- 
dite members of the IRA. 

There are currently two 
other IRA members whose 
extradition Britain is seeking, 
one in New York and one in 
California.

ranch to investigate a missing 
person report, they found six 
drifters who claimed they had 
been lured there with the 
promise of a hot meal and 
work, then enslaved, tortured 
and chained in a barn at night 
to prevent their escape. Tapes 
on which the torture can 
allegedly be heard were seized.

What roadworks? What

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 
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 
you there. 


What boulder? 

The self-levelling suspen-

Oslo row 
over polar 
bear ranch 

From Tony Samstag 
Oslo 

An unprecedented applica- 
tion has been filed with the 
Norwegian Ministry of Envi- 
ronment for permission to 
establish a polar bear ranch on 
a small Arctic island. 

Mr Arvid Oevergaard, a 
local policeman, and Mr Inar 
Hanssen. a machinist, want to 
bring five female animals and 
one male from their native 
Spitsbergen, where they are 
strictly protected, to Bjarkoy. 
pan of the Western. Islands 
group. 

v The “ranch” would extend 
"well out to sea. duplicating as 
} far as possiMe the polar heats' 
natural habitat. The animals 
I would be bied for their skins, 
which fetch £500 to £2,000 at 
auction iaCopenhagen. 

Specialists af the University 
of T romse s- Institute of Acetic 
Biology confirmed ihatpofar 
bears do breed TScptigity; 
but consider that the’ costs, of 
setting up and running the 
commercial operation would 
be prohibitive. 

The controversial proposal 
would require exemption 
[ from a formidable number of 
I regulations. - 

The Syssebnon, or Norwe- 
gian governor of Spitsbergen 
under the 1920 Treaty of 
^Svalbard, would even have to 
rule on the question of fencing 
the animals in. which is 
forbidden for animal welfare. 
Opposition -from' conserva- 
tionists would be fierce. 

The argumentlhat commer- 
cial breeding of the animals 
would be good conservation 
may prove crucial to the 
application. 

US vote 
opens way 
to free 
trade talks 

From John Best 
Ottawa 

Canada is getting ready to 
enter into a complex and 
politically sensitive set of free- 
trade negotiations with the 
United States. The chances of 
success are probably no better 
than about 50-50. 

The way was cleared last 
week when the US Senate 
finance committee approved 
President Reagan’s request for 
authority to launch the 
negotiations. 

Bui the closeness of the vote 

- in fact a 10-10 tie. but that 
was enough to stave off defeat 

— demonstrated that ma ny U S 
legislators have strong reser- 
vations about liberalized bilat- 
eral trade. 

In Ottawa Mr Brian 
Mulroney. the Prime Minis- 
ter. said he was delighted with 
the verdict. But he acknowl- 
edged that events in Washing- 
ton were proof of the immense 
challenge posed by the negoti- 
ations. which are expected to 
last up to two scare. 

In the wake of the Senate 
committee vote, Canadian op- 
ponents of free trade inside 
and outside rhe House of 
Commons expressed concern 
o'er promises Mr Reagan 
may have made to .win over 
wavering Senators. H e is 
known to have twisted arms 
furiously in the days before 
the vote to stave off defeat. 

Whatever promises were 
made. Mr Mulroney ba^made 
clear that they are not binding 
on Canada. The coming negp- 
!:anons are without precondi- 
tions. he said repeatedly- - 
Cansda-US trade i» already 
targer than that between any 
other two countries. Last year ; 
it was worth well over. -

enjoying, an SIS billion ■, 
surplus- 


violence. 

There was also a need for 
blacks to be given political 
rights so that the leaders who 
might take part in negotia- 
tions could be identified. Mr 
Botha said. 

Earlier he had told the 
Indian House of Delegates in 
Parliament that -discussions 
between the Government and 
the Eminent Persons Group 
had reached “a delicate stage, 
and it would not be in the 
interest of South Africa to 
make further comment at this 
stage". 

Mr Malcofcm Fraser, the 
former Australian Prime Min- 
ister, who led the group's 
mission to South Africa in 
February, also remarked in 


encouraging sia^". 

It is believed that South 
Africa is insisting that the 
group give an undertaking 
that, if negotiations com- 
menced, there would not. be 
retributive Western action 
against South Africa if it is still 
forced to counter violence 
inspired by the ANC. 

The group is demanding the 
release of Mr Nelson Mandela 
— although Mr Botha has 
again stated he will not be 
freed unconditionally — and 
that the ANC should be 
recognized as a legitimate 
political organization. 

At least three people died in 
continued township violence 
during the weekend. 

The body of a man. killed by 
a shot from a South African 
Army issue rifle, was found in 
Alexandra township, near 
Johannesburg. 

A community councillor 
was knifed to death near 
Worcester, in the western 
Cape province, and a third 
black was shot dead near 
Cradock in the eastern Cape.

EEC tackles cost 
of farming deal 

From Richard Owen, Brussels 


Finance ministers of the 
European Community meet 
in Luxembourg today to deal 
with the consequences of a 
hard-fought compromise over 
form prices, which benefits 
Europe’s formers but has 
worsened the EEC budget 
crisis. 

Herr Gerhard Siohenberg, 
the West German Finance 
Minister, will be under pres- 
sure to help resolve the crisis 
by agreeing to a supplemen- 
tary budget. 

. The EEC form price agree- 
ment reached on Friday after 
talks lasting five days will 
require a supplementary bud- 
get-of nearly £1 billion. Com- 
mission officials said. But 
Herr. StoIfcnbeig. a firm pro- 
ponent of budgetary disci- 
pline; appears to be deter- 
mined to resist moves toraise

here at the weekend that the_ 
present ceflingof T t 4 per cent 
on national YAT contribu- 
tions to HC coffers must not 
be breached before the end of 
the year at the very eaiiiesL 

Bonn’s hard line over the 
budget is due to political, as 
well as economic reasons. 
Hen- Stoltenbeig is seen as a 
likely successor to Chancellor 
Kohl, whose Government 
feces critical local elections 
shortly in Lower Saxony and a 
general election at the begin- 
ning of next year. 

At last week's marathon 
form talks Herr Ignaz Kiechle. 
the West German Agriculture 
Minister, demanded form 
price increases but. like other 


ministers, had to settle for a 
price freeze. In theory, the 
finance ministers can block 
the form package, but are 
unlikely to do so. 

The new form package in- 
cludes cuts in milk quotas, a 
cereals production package for 
“co-responsibility levy" and 
continued beef and sheep 
subsidies. 

Underlying the package is 
devaluation of “green" cur- 
rencies, including the “green” 
pound, following the realign- 
ment of the European Mone- 
tary System (EMS) earlier this 
month. 

EEC officials say the only 
alternative to a supplementary 
budget to meet the resulting 
cost is a cut in regional and 
social funds, already slashed. 

. Farm spending now- ac- 
counts for more than three- 
quarters of the total EEC 
budget. Further cuts in region- 
al -and social spending are 
unacceptable to Spain and 
Portugal and to the European 
Parliament, which at the end 
of last year precipitated the 
1986 budget crisis by voting 
for non-farm spending for in 
excess of the budget approved 
by the Council of Ministers. 

The extra spending is need- 
ed to meet the cost of enlarge- 
ment and inherited regional 
and social commitments. 

The finance ministers today 
meet a European Parliament 
delegation to- seek common 
ground. Mr Nigel Lawson, 
Chancellor of the Exchequer, 
is likely to face pressure for 
Britain to join the EMS. 


Sudanese

eignty which wifi act as head

Negotiations went on to the 
very fast minute. As thousands 
of euphoric demonstrators 
chanted “Democracy" outside 
the Parliament building, polit- 
ical leaders could be seen still 
holding intense discussions in 
the lobby.

R oom for manoeuvre on three sensitive issues 

Tamils find merit in peace 
offering from Colombo 


From Michael Hamlyn . 

Delhi 

Although the kflfings on 
both sides continue, signs of a 
renewed peace offensive are 
building up in the Sri Lankan 
ethnic conflict. . 

The Foreign Minister, Mr 
A.CS. Hameed, who was in 
Delhi last week for the meet- 
ing of the son-aligned move- 
ment brought with him a 
document outlining Colombo's 
latest position on greater au- 
tonomy for the Northern and 
Eastern provinces. 

Though details have not 
been released, the document 
has been received with some 
appreciation. Even foe Gener- 
al Secretary of foe Tamil 
United Liberation Front, Mr 
Appapiliai Anurt hali a gam . 
said it “opens foe door for an 
advance on the earlier propos- 
als formulated by foe Govern- 
ment last August". 

The document shows some 
flexibility over at least three 
sensitive topics: land settle- 
ment, few and order, and 
representation in services. 

. It is stifl dear that President 
jayewardene is unwilling to 
concede any organizational

Three representatives of the

American cuts force UN to 
meet on financial crisis 


From Zoriana Pysarhvsky, New York 



The United Nations is in 
dire financial straits. The Gen- 
eral Assembly convenes today 
! in special session called by 
I Senor Javier Perez de Cuellar. 

1 the Secretary-General, in or- 
der to drive home the magni- 
tude of the crisis to a largely 
oblivious and carefree mem- 
bership. At stake may well be 
the survival of the organ- 
ization. 

The immediate concern is 
i reducing foe S96 million (£64 
million) shortfall out of a 
budget of $800 million by foe 
: end of this year. Unless steps 
; are taken soon, foe UN will 
run out of cash and will be 
unable to pay its 7,000 Secre- 
tarial employees. 

The long-term goal is to 
bring about a stria sense of 
fiscal responsibility that will 
make foe UN less open to 
criticism and less vulnerable 
to cutbacks from its contribu- 
tors which are more often than 
not politically motivated. 

The UN is in the middle of a 
financial and political struggle 
with foe United States, its 
main contributor. 

The outcome will inevitably

Russian 
warning to 
Western 
reporters 

From Christopher Walker 
Moscow 

A new and severe warning 
to Western correspondents 
based in Moscow, whose re- 
porting displeases the Krem- 
lin, has been delivered by an 
official paper here. 

It came in a savage personal 
attack on foe reputation of an 
American reporter known for 
close contacts with human 
rights activists. 

The Saturday edition of 
Sovietskuya Rossiya, the Co- 
mmunist Party daily of the 
Russian Federation, accused 
Mr Donald Kimelman, who 
has been based in Moscow 
since 1983 for foe Philadeb 
phia Inquirer, of “anti-social 
conduct" and of writing “anti- 
Soviet fabrications". 

The paper dismissed allega- 
tions about the stria restric- 
tions imposed on Western 
journalists reporting from the 
Soviet Union. 

It warned: “It appears foal 
foe time has come to talk 
about foe limits of hospitality 
for those who come to our 
country with hardly concealed 
hatred and enmity and who 
smear our ways of life, while 
ignoring our laws and norms 
of condua accepted in this 
country." 

The attack on Mr Kimel- 
man's reporting, including his 
coverage of the plight of 
Soviet Jews (he is himself 
Jewish), was one of foe most 
personal and harshly worded 
of its kind to appear in the 
slate-controlled media since 
Mr Mikhail Gorbachov came 
to power in March 1 985. 

Under his predecessors, vil- 
ification of individual Mos- 
cow correspondents was a 
regular occurrence, but there 
had been hopes that his com- 
munications-conscious style 
might stop the practice. 

The attack in Soviaskaya 
Rossfya. a paper which has 
been in foe vanguard of Mr 
Gorbachov's campaign for 
more open reporting , accused 
Mr Kimelman. on the hasis of 
a contacts list which it alleged 
he had “lost or deliberately 
left" in a public place, of 
making contact “only with 
renegades and criminals". 

The article, later distributed 
by Tass, also claimed he was 
refusing contact with Soviet 
citizens other than those con- 
cerned with the alleged viola- 
tion of human rights. 

Mr Kimelman was to return 
to the US this summer to take 
a senior post as a foreign 
affairs commentator. 


win obtain control of UN 
spending priorities and appro- 
priations . a power now almost 
exclusively m the hands of foe 
Third World. 

Although the UN financial 
crisis has built up over the 
years as a result of partial 
withholding of assessed con- 
tributions from member na- 
tions. the Americans were 
instrumental in forcing it to 
foe forefront. 

This year foe Reagan Ad- 
ministration announced that 
it would cut its contribution 
by $70 million, which repre- 
sents about a third of its $210 
million annual assessment. 

Since the US is responsible 
for 25 per cent of foe UN 
budget, foe unilateral reduc- 
tion has sent shock waves 
throughout its system. 

The slashes in the American 
contributions go beyond the 
requirements of the Gramm- 
Rudman-Hol lings budget con- 
trol law. 

The fact that foe Slate 
Deportment has volunteered 
further cuts in its appropria- 
tion has raised what UN 
officials and diplomats regard 
as dismaying questions about 
the Administration's real in- 
tentions. 


Although this is denied by 
Washington, there is specula- 
tion that the US is slowly 
edging out of the UN door and 
is trying to disable the organi- 
zation in the process. 

Observers point to the irony 
foal the .Americans have de- 
cided to apply the pressure at a 
time when foe UN member- 
ship has become more conser- 
vative and less likely to use it 
as an anti-Western forum. 

But UN officials and West- 
ern diplomats say that one of 
the greatest obstacles in either 
reforming the UN to the 
Reagan Administration's sat- 
isfaaion, or cutting it to the 
level at which it does not 
much matter what it does, is 
the inability of foe Third 
World — which forms the 
majority in the UN - to come 
to grips with foe reality of the 
problem. 

This has been illustrated by 
a marked lack of any sense of 
urgency by the General As- 
sembly in tackling the prob- 
lem. Interest groups have 
already taken political um- 
brage at foe prospect of manv 
"sacred cow” programmes be- 
ing trimmed.

contentious debate oyer the 
manufacture and possible use 
in Europe of new binary 
chemical weapons. 

Ambassadors to Nato meet 
today in Brussels within foe 
framework of the Defence 
Planning Group to reach a 
preliminary decision on de- 
ploying 'binary weapons in 
Europe. Defence Ministers 
will take the final decision in 
Brussels next month. 

A decision lo stockpile new 
chemical weapons could cre- 
ate obstacles in disarmament 
negotiations with the Soviet 
Union 3t a lime when foe 
superpo wer relationship is 
again under strain. 

Nato officials point out that 
foe Russians have huge stocks 
of the weapons, and the West 
must arm itself with nerve 
gases in response. They hope 
that decisions to go ahead with 
contingency plans will not 
arouse public opposition in 
the West comparable to foe 
protests over the deployment 
of cruise and Pershing 2 
missiles in Europe. 

Last year the US Congress 
approved an Administration 
plan for resuming manufac- 
ture of chemical weapons for 
the first time in more than 1 5 
years. But Congress laid down 
that the weapons should re- 
place, rather than supplement, 
existing stocks, which are 
becoming unstable, and that 
European allies must agree. 

This creates political prob- 
lems for The Netherlands, 
which faces a general election 
next month, and for West 
Germany, which has impor- 
tant local eleaions shortly 
afterwards. Neither Govern- 
ment would welcome contro- 
versy on arms issues. 

Binary chemical weapons 
are stored in two halves which 
are harmless apart but form a 
lethal nerve gas when mixed. 
It is believed that under foe 
new arrangements foe weap- 
ons would be stockpiled in 
America and deployed in Eu- 
rope in a crisis, after transat- 
lantic consultations. 

But the controversy over 
the use of British bases for the 
attack on Libya has made 
officials acutely sensitive to 
the problems posed by weap- 
ons that could be used in 
Europe while remaining under 
American control. 


Kohl gives Waldheim his vote 


From Richard Bassett 
Vienna 

The possibility that Dr Kurt 
Waldheim might be prevented 
from entering the United 
States if elected President of 
Austria seems to have had no 
effect on Austrian voters. 

An opinion poll carried out 
by foe independent Austrian 
Company for Marketing re- 
vealed at the weekend that 60 
per cent of voters consider this 
to be irrelevant and that Dr 
Waldheim would make a per- 
fealy “respectable” President 


who would not "tarnish 
Austria's reputation abroad." 

Eighty-five per cent of those 
polled were critical of foe role 
of foe World Jewish Congress 
and believed that the organi- 
zation was “ interfering in 
Austria's internal affairs”. 

Dr Waldheim also received 
support from Chancellor Kohl 
of West Germany, who was in 
Salzburg on Saturday. Herr 
Kohl told Austrian radio that 
he had known Dr Waldheim 
for years and considered him 
to be a "great patriot." 


"I cannot vote in 3n Austri- 
an election but if I could I 
should certainly vote for Dr 
Waldheim.” foe West Ger- 
man Chancellor said. 

• Accuser invited: Dr Wald- 
heim has invited Mr Israel

Opposition assembly delivers 
ultimatum to Chile regime 


From Labe Sagaris 
Santiago 

In a significant departure 
from their law-abiding past, 
leaders of Chile's key social 
organizations, grouped in the 
, opposition Civil Society, held 
, their national assembly “und- 
l aground" here at the week- 
-end, defying a ban by the 
; military authorities. 

More than 270 delegates, 
representing over a million 
i Chileans from all walks of life, 
• listened to speeches by leadere 
! of trade unions, professional 
groups, and women's, stu- 
’ dents' and tony owners' 
organizations. 

The secret assembly ap- 
proved a list of “Chile's 
demands”, calling for an im- 
mediate return to democratic 


government an end to human 
rights violations, the reversal 
of the military Government's 
education policies, and sweep- 
ing changes in current eco- 
nomic policies. It also estab- 
lished a permanent "Ass- 
embly Council”. 

Speaker after speaker gave a 
warning that if the national 
assembly failed, a bloody civQ 
war would engulf the country. 

In the words of Dr Francis- 
co Rivas, one of the speakers: 
"We face a situation that may 
break our people’s very soul 

Mobilization and civil 

disobedience are our weapons 
to defeat tragedy and provide 
our people with a genuine, 
shining alternative.” 

The calling of a national 
assembly by the Gvil Society 


appears to have been an 
ingenious way of getting 
around the apparently insu- 
perable antagonisms between 
Chile's two most important 
opposition groups: the Chris- 
tian Democratic-led Demo- 
cratic Alliance and the Com- 
munist-Socialist Popular De- 
mocratic Movement. 

Political parties are not 
directly represented in the 
assembly. But virtually all the 
leaders of Gvil Society mem- 
ber organizations also belong 
to a political party, and both 
opposition coalitions have 
tacked the assembly. 

The assembly gave the mili- 
tary Government unlit May 
30 to respond to its demands. 

Meanwhile, students* wo- 
men's organizations, universi- 


ty professors and workers 
have called protests which will 
begin this week: 

Senor Hector Moya, presi- 
dent of the Santiago Regional 
Association of Lorry Owners, 
has said that his members are 
considering defaulting on 
debts of more than $200 
million (£131 million) in an 
attempt to put pressure on the 
Government. 

More than 700,000 home- 
owners will hold a referendum 
this week to decide whether to 
defeuh on debts of $1.5 
billion. 

This is the first time that 
conservative groups, like the 
road transport operators and 
home owners, have joined 
other groups critical of the 
regime in an action plan.

When Presadent de to Mar 
drid of Mexico visited the 
woridiig<toss colony of More- . 
b» tost month in the wounded 
heart of Mexico City, the local 
authorities went into a frenzy 
of activity, painting walls, 
filling botes in the roads and 
knocking on doers warning 
people of “reprisals” against 
anyone contemplating anti- 
government protests. 

The object seemed , to be to 

reassure the President that the 


ed the world ova for the mueb- 
trnmpeted National Recon- 
struction Fund were being pot 
to 'good use, - and that_ the 
promises to rive top priority to 
the needs or the earthquake 
victims were being fidfified. 

About 23^00 Morelos fam- 
ilies were left homeless when 
catastrophe struck on Septem- 
ber 19 tost year. Few seem to 
be impressed by the sudden 
activity, since virtually all of 
them remain without a borne. 

In fact a pressure gronp set 
np by dm victims is talking of 
occupying the Aztec Stadium, 
where the World Cop football 
final will be played in June, to 
embarrass the Government 
into taking action. 

Leaders of the group, which 
for months has been holding 
noisy street demonstrations, 
say they are appalled at the 
energy being spent on prepara- 
tions for the World Cup while 
“no reply is given to the 
demands of the families affect- 
ed by the earthquake". 

“We're still in an emergen- 
cy. Things today are just as 
bad as they were seven months 
ago m the days just after the 
earthquake.” the bead of the 
local Salvation Army outpost, 
Captain Rafammdo Reyes, 
said. 

“People - thousands more 
than we can take care of — stfll 
don't have enough to eat 
nowhere to wash, no place of 
their own to sleep.” 

Captain Reyes is viewed as 
something of a saint by 
Adriana, aged 28, a mother of 
three and one of 8300 home- 
less victims the Solvation 
Army provides with a meal 
each day. 

Adriana's house whs flat- 
tened in the earthquake. Most 
of her " neighbovs' houses 
were, too. She has filled in 
endless forms seeking finan- 
cial help from the Govern- 
ment She has been turned out 
of countless city council of- 
fices.. She has taken part in 
demonstrations at the presi- 
dential palace. 

For the jpast seven months 
Adriana lues spent each night 
with her husband and children 
on the floor of a beamy salon 
owned by ah aunt She spends 


the day in a tin-roofed tat on 
the rubble of their home. 

“We'd stay and sleep bere^ - 
but the rats come in and bite *-

taflt - only very recently - a

fear could become their per- 
manent homes. 

Made of wood, cardboard

ment. They promise a lot bat

Sedor Cano>, who now lives 
under a tin roof with his wtfe 
and three remaining children, 
was not at home when ' the 
earthquake strode. He was rat 
for an early morning run, 
preparing for the annual Mex- 
ico Gty marathon. His eldest 
daughter, aged 12, and a son 
aged four were kilted. 

He had promised both of , 
them he would run in the ' 
marathon in December. “Over

I wouldn't make it, bat wheal-

How Briton lost taste 
for Contra adventure 

From Patricia dough, San Josd 


Mr John Davies, a British 
instructor of Nicaraguan Con- 
tra guerrillas, sipped his first 
beer of freedom after his 
release from a Costa Rican jail 
and said his brief career as an 
anti-Communist fighter was 
now over. 

Mr Davies, from Bridg- 
north, Shropshire, was freed 
on £600 bail on Friday after a 
year and a day in San JosCjaiL 
He was arrested with another 
Briton, Mr Stephen GLibbery, 
of Solihull West Midlands, 
and two Americans, a French- 
man and 14 Nicaraguans 
when Costa Rican police dis- 
covered their training camp 
not far from the Nicaraguan 
border. Mr Glibbery is expect- 
ed to be released soon. 

The group were- changed 
with possessing explosives 
and with actions hostile to the 
state, which Mr Davies takes 
to mean violating Costa Rica's 
neutrality. He has beat or- 
dered to report regularly to the 
police and will not be allowed 
to leave the country before the 
trial begins, possibly in June. 

Relaxing at a modem apart- 
ment hotel on the outskirts of 
San Jos£, Mr Davies, aged 23, 
said: “1 came here to fight 
communism. It was a ques- 
tion of idealism; it was all very 
romantic. I had been reading a 
lot about this- part of the 
world, and I paid my own way 
out here.” 

“I was not involved in any 
hostilities,” he said. “I was 
just training tbe Contras. I 
never went into Nicaragua.” 
He had been with the Contras 


only about two months before 
he was arrested. His year in 
prison had made him lose the 
taste for adventure, he said. 

He said he served for three 
years in tbe British Army, first 
with The Royal Green Jackets 
in Berlin and Northern Ire- 
land and later with the Army 
Air Corps. 

Asked if be and his group 
were financed by the Ameri- 
cans, he was silent for a few 
seconds, then said cautiously: 
“Reagan is giving money to 
the Contras, and one could 
assume that this is the way it 
was financed.” He was not 
given any money by tbe 
Americans directly. 

“The Contras will not over- 
throw the Sandinislas, not in a 
hundred million years, even if 
they get the $100 million 
which Reagan wants to give 
them,” he said. "Only the 
United States can overthrow 
the Sandinislas." 

He had been alone in his 
cell, but was able to talk to 
people in other cells. They had 
an hour of exercise a day and 
lived on the eternal Central 
American diet of rice and 
beans. 

The Costa Rican Justice 
Minister, Senor Hugo Alfonso 
Munoz, told The Times it was 
absolutely necessary to in- 
crease and reorganize' the po- 
lice to keep a check on Contra 
actions in Costa Rica. 

“The Contras can stay here, 
but on important conditions 
which derive from the right of 
asylum and Costa Rica’s 
neutrality," be said.

SPECTRUM 


The battle of the New River 


Britain's water supplies are the latest 


Government target for privatization. 


Today, as the environment department 


issues a consultation paper, Richard North 
reviews the arguments and looks at the 
related threat to one ancient waterway 


The New River, which runs very 
gently from Hertfordshire to Stoke 
Newington, north London, is 
venerable. A man-made water- 
■course, built in the first years of 
the 17th century, it provided the 
■first supply of sweele waters'* to 
be piped to London firm the 
countryside and has been supply- 
ing the capital with water ever 
since. ■ 

- It is, however, about to become 
redundant, as the water industry’s 
cwn M25, an underground 
ringmain, win replace it at toe end 


ringmain, 
of the decade. 

An anxious group of residents — 
“The Save the Reservoirs, Filter 
Beds and New River Cham pai g n** 
— gathers regularly to plot the 
conservation of the river, with its 
60 acres of reservoirs and 20 acres 
erf filter beds in Stoke Newington, 
welcome expanses of open water 
among. council tow er Modes and 
gentrified terraces. They attract 
flocks of ducks, geese and swans 
and the London Wildlife Trust has 
been funded by the Thames Water 
Authority (the owner since 1973 of 
the entire New River and its 
works) to survey the wildlife 
interest of the system. John New- 
ton, the trust's conservation offi- 
cer, says: "The New River is a 
unique wildlife resource in Great- 
er London for aquatic plants, 
insects and birds. Its value as a 
corridor bringing wildlife into the 
city is inestimable; its loss would 
have a severe effect** 

The campaigners fear that 
Thames Water will try to sell the 
land to- the highest bidder, and 
that their precious open space will 
be filled in by exclusive housing 
or, worse, industrial units. Their 
anxiety has been fuelled by the 
authority's manager ofproperty 
and estates, Mr M. Chapman, 
who, in a tetter to one local 
resident on the subject of land 
disposal said : “It is our statutory 
duty to obtain the best price that 
we can**. 

The campaign's secretary. Fetor 
Gosnefl, says: “With a modest 
display of imagination a great deal 
could be done in this respect by 
providing homes and industrial 
estates on the many derelict sites 
in the borough". The authority has 
said it win announce plans for the 
sites in May or June. 

That Thames Water would sell 
some at least of the land was 
inevitable, with or without priva- 
tization. But residents believe that 
as a public authority it wouldhave 
been more amenable to “public 
interest" arguments than it may 
prove to be as a straightforward 
commercial enterprise. 

For their part, the authority's 
spokeswoman says: “We recog- 


nize the New River has an 
.amenity value. We're trying to 
find a suitable compromise — one 
which helps alleviate pressure for 
bousing and jobs locally while 
improving the amenity value of 
the river and at least some of the 
reservoirs and filter beds, which 
are, after all, not even open to the 
public ar the moment" 

This last point particularly up- 
sets the campaigners. Peter 
Gosneli, a retired civil servant and 
a council tenant on an estate 
which overlooks the New River, 
says: “When the flats round the 
reservoirs were opened in 1949 
there was a proud boast that a 
promenade by the water had been 
built for residents. Unfortunately 
someone erected a fence ana 
forgot to put a gate in it Instead 
they pot up a notice warning us 
about guard dogs. It has never 
been open." 

Most of the local authorities 
along the route have come to an 
agreement with Thames Water, 
but Hackney Borough Council — 
which has die reservoirs and the 
filter beds in its bailiwick — has 
noL Its planners are broadly 
sympathetic to the campaign. 

The residents believe the site 
would greatly benefit from a water 
sports centre and aquatic wildlife 
park — not least for the several 
schools nearby. Last week they 
formed a subcommittee to explore 
the sorts of “green” business that 
might also work on the site. 

The preservation of the New 
River is likely to attract enthusi- 
asts of industrial archaeology. 
Flowing from the springs of 
Hertford and Ware, it originally 
ambled for nearly 40 miles, right 
through to a Round Pond, con- 
structed just by Sadlers Wells. 
The reservoirs, with their grade 
two listed pumping station known 
locally as Hackney Castle, were 
built in the mid 19th century, and 
the route shortened to 27 miles. 

The New River Company still 
exists, as part of a property firm (it 
sold the river works to the 
Metropolitan Water Board at the 
turn of this century). It is, accord- 
ing to Bernard Rudden. Professor 
of Comparative Law at Oxford 
University, and author of The 
New River, a Lead History (Clar- 
endon Press. £20): “the oldest 
surviving business company in the 

English-speaking world, possibly 
the whole world . 

On the memorial to Sir Hugh 
Myddleton. the merchant adven- 
. tuner who built the New River, it is 
described as “an immortal work". 
It seems unlikely that it will be 
allowed to dry up without a 
considerable scrap. 



GOING PRIVATE 


The Government Intends to 
announce a water Industry 
privatization Bill in this year's . 
Queen’s Speech. It would 
restructure the 10 water 
authorities as water service public 
limited companies (WSPLCs), 
which win be floated intopublic 
ownership indhriduefly. Tne five 
o’ so more profitable authorities 
would be floated soorr-after the 
Act comes into force, i 
In the early summer of 1 887: 


are expected to raise about £1 

each. 

The financial aspects of the & 

WSPLCs, including pricirw, will be 
controlled by a Director-General 
of Water Services at the 
Department of the Environment 
Ultimately the Secretary of State 
for the Environment would 
account to Parliament tor . 
environmental, water quality 
and pricing matters. 



T wwhM Jo Spector, David Fracy andJim Merry fear that privatization means tbe New Riversys- 

- tom will be sold to the high*** bidder by Rey Watts (top centre), chairman of Thames Water Authority, which owns it Right: the New River Head in Hertfordshire - 


ENVIRONMENTAL WARNINGS 


At present, water authorities oper- 
ate and police many of the 
controls which apply to private 
industry (and, anomalously, 
themselves) as they discharge 
effluent and treated sewage into, 
the nation's watercourses. 

“Suppose it should happen that 
a major shareholder of a water 
company was itself polluting, and 
applied pressure on the board of 
the company to take an easy line 
on the matter?" asks David Con- 


dor. of the Council for the 
Protection of Rural England 
(CPRE). 

“And how do you reconcile 
looking after shareholders and, 
say, cleaning up the Mersey which 
it is estimated will require £4 
billion over the next 20 or 30 
years?" 

The nation needs to spend 
money on long-term infrastruc- 
ture: by one reckoning, not less 
than £16 billion on underground 


water and sewage pipes alone. 

The CPRE and others are also 
very concerned that reform of the 
control of land drainage, which 
has damaged many wildlife habi- 
tats. may be delayed because of 
privatization. Many of the water 
companies' activities could be 
environmentally damaging with- 
out the will and money to under- 
take them sensitively (as some 
authorities are now praised for 
having realized). 


POWER OF THE AUTHORITIES

notably the most affluent; Thames 
Water, and its chairman, Roy 
Watts.

than Thaaes tiienght it needed to. 


GOVERNMENT’S GOAL 


Today, Mr John Patten, environ- 
ment minister responsible for wa- 
ter, publishes a consultation 
paper. The Water Environment: 
The Next Steps. It will reveal that 
the Government does not propose 
an independent body to police the 
environmental activites of private 
water companies. (Instead It is 
believed to want to create a new 
body with a wider brief along the of 
the United States's Environmental 
Protection Agency.) 

Moreover, there is ho plan to 
publish an annual “State of the 
Industry" report, although the 
proposed DoE based Water Pollu- 
tion Inspectorate wiB probably 
report annually. 

Proposed safeguards include: 

• Anyone with evidence of poor 
practice by water authorities to be 
able to appeal to the Secretary of 
State; 

• Guidelines of good environmeo- 



Minister John Patten

statute form; 

• Statutory force to be given to 
objectives and standards tor river 
and estuary water quality; 

• Current levels of envi ronm ental 
spending to be main tamed and 
mo nitored; 

• “Protection zones" where po- 
tentially polluting practices to be 
regulated. 


WHO WILL GAIN? 


Paul Herrington, a water econo- 
mist at Leicester University says, 
“I’ve searched the White Paper 
(Privatization of the Water Au- 
thorities in England and Wales) in 
vain for serious evidence that the 
general public will gain. The 
merchant bankers, accountants 
and the Treasury will, but few 
others. This is a case not of selling - 
the family silver but the famil y 
plumbing." ‘ 

John Humphries, a board mem- 
ber for Thames Water!, believes 
that the Government has noright *• 
to seD the water authorities. ' 
“When the ratepayers and others 
were building up the assets of their 
local public health services — 
which is what water and sewerage 
services are — they were doing so 
for themselves and their children, 
not for the benefit of the 
Treasury." 

In a letter to The Times last 



Board member John Humphries 

week, John Patten said that Parlia- 
ment was justified in seflingpuMic 
assets in the interests or “the 
general taxpayer, who in one way 
or paid for them in the first place.” 
The Government believes that the 
planning system will ensure that 
assets such as land in the Lake 
District, or Stoke Newington are 
not sold for inappropriate 
development. - T • 


“The gov e r nm ent has used ns as a 
mOch cow", says Watts. Before 
the protest, the Government ted 
repeatedly declared that privatiza- 
tion was not on the agenda. Within 
months it was at the top-of the. Hst

Survival of a well-oiled fall guy 


A fortnight ago, Dallas con- 
tained a typical humilia- 
tion of Cliff Barnes, J. R. 
Ewing's ill-starred business 
rival. In full view of the 
tuxedoed guests at the Oil 
Barons* Ball, Cliff's wife flung 
a plate of gateau in his face. 
Fumbling to regain bis equi- 
librium, he cried: “Whatta 
gal!'' and forced out a long, 
unconvincing laugh. Mo- 
ments later, he sauntered into 
the dining hall, having forgot- 
ten to wipe clean his face. 

Ken Kercheval has played

In KerchevaTs interpreta- 
tion, Cliff is a millionaire with 
an emotional age of 10. Unlike 
J. R~, who brilliantly conceals 
his designs. Cliff is childishly 
incapable of hiding anything, 
granted dispensation even to 
cry. Fastened to the helter- 
skelter of the plot. Cliff treats 
the twin imposters, triumph 
and disaster, just the same: 
badly, with a bottle in his 
hand. Like a child, too, he 
desperately equates material 
possessions with happiness. 

Yet Cliff was not always 
thus retarded. In synopses for 
the original 1978 mini-series, 
he was a college-educated 
barrister with political ambi- 
tions in the Democratic party, 
determined to avenge the 
Ewings' destruction of his 
father by rooting out corrup- 
tion from the oil state. Playing 
on Kercheval's physical re- 
semblance, he was to be 
modelled on Ted Kennedy. 

For Kercheval, who fought 
his way out of dead-end jobs 
to his first break on Broadway, 
Oiff was the latest of many 
suit-and-lie television roles. 

A lover of the country, 
whose fame has bought him 
bis own popcorn farm, be read 
for the part of Dallas's farm 
hand. Ray Krebbs. “I didn’t 
want to play Oiff but I needed 
the money", he says. 

The rest is television histo- 
ry. Ever since Oiff claimed 



Tomorrow

supergroup’s supertour 


that he was the father of Sue 
Ellen's baby and blood tests 
instead perversely proved 
J. R/s paternity, there has 
been one certainty: Cliff pain- 
fully lacking the Ewings* fa- 
milial props or their expertise 
on horseback, will never beat 
them. 

Kercheval insists, however, 
that Oiff is a survivor. Of all 
J. R.*s adversaries over the 
years, he points out, Oiff 
alone remains. “I'm the coy- 
ote in the Road Runner car- 
toon. Pm dropped off cliffs, I

how ft feete to torn 40. Almost 
single* handedly she seems to have 
made it possible, not merely for the 
abouMo-be 50-year-olds but also 
for those feeing that most dreaded 
ofbirthdays — die end of die fourth 
decade — to con template the event 
without trepidation. Or at least with 
considerably less trepidation than 
before, the days of Dynasty. Women ' 
turning 40 all speak of Ms Collins 
with wonder ana relief If you can 
lodk Hke-that> if yon can behave Eke 
that al 52, who cares what 40 brings? 

Yet 40 itself the birthday, still 
pricks. It doesn’t take much of that 
advertised shampoo. After 40, to 
underline the message that 40 
implies change. There is life before 
40, so the assumption goes: youth- 
ful, chancy, full of hope and 
possibility. And there is life after 40: 
responsible, with views and opin- 
ions, in neat tailored suits. 

That nothing actually alters is 
immaterial: many women believe 
themselves altered. 

Clare Francis, who had her 
fortieth birthday on April 17, said: 
“You can never quite lave behind 
the feelings of horror of your 
mother's generation,' that at 40 a

possible to have fun — but you are 
distinctly past your best” 

If nothing else, these is the 
surprise of in can Hayley Mills, 
forever the sweet little girl in Tiger 
Bay. really be 40? Can Jane Asher 
have really turned that hateful 
corner, and can Joanna Lumfey. her 
co-star ip Blithe ' Spirit ; currently 
playing at the Vaudeville, be about 
to? ...... 

For actresses, however staunchly 
they approach it, the hurdle cannot 


altogether be ignored. Naomi Buch, 
who turned 40 last August, did so 
with disbelief and revulsion: the 
event most feared in her life, the 
unslomachable descent into middle 
age, had finally arrived She was no 
longer able to play the games she 
had enjoyed with her small daugh- 
ter, by now a horrifyingly adult 16: 
“Right up until die was a hulking 13 
. years old, I used to say to hen 
.Darling, if any one asks how old 
you are, say you're three'." 

But then, few women are con- 
fronted on their fortieth birthday 
with an ordeal such as that faced by 
Naomi Buch. She was appearing — 
naked — in Athol Fugard’s State- 
ments After an Arrest Under the 
Immorality Acl “I have never 
before been asked as an actress, to 
. take my dothes off. It seemed a 
defiance against my birthday." Af- 
ter the play, she celebrated the 
occasion by crying all night over 
gallons of wine in a restaurant. But 
40 passed and her life has improved 
beyond aU memory. Not long 
afterwards, she fell in love: she now 
. feels secure, attractive. Her only 
worry is that there are fewer parts 
for older actresses. 

. If Naomi Buch faced up to her 
fortieth birthday with consterna- 
tion. Dtlys Wading, who opened in . 
Time this month, views hers on 
May 5 with- delight. She likes 
birthdays; the more momentous the 
age, the better the. party. She

former dancer she is also fit. “Fm

Maybe it is better to turn 40 in 
business than on the stage. Laraine 
Ashton has been a businesswoman

Fresh at 44k Laraine Ashton, Clare Francis (top right) and Dilys Waiting (bottom right) 


for IS years, running her own 
successful model agency. But it is a 
career where age and looks matter. 
It is not, however, the presence of 
pretty 16-year-olds that depresses 
her — she accepts, laughing, that she 
is now old enough to be their 
mother — but simply that 40 is a 
symbol of growing older. "1 find it 
killing: I can't stand it It terrifies 
me. All this rubbish about 40 being 
a wonderful age — ah yes, but for 
how long?" 

At 25 she longed to be a little 
older, to possess some of the 
gravjtas she felt sure would come 
with age. The gra vitas came and 
went, unperceived “There wasn't a 
moment when 1 felt: this is just 
right.” She talks of mild physical 
complaints but admits to a better 
life generally. 

She travels where and when she 
wants, she feels no constraints about 
what she can wear — “the terrible 
expression ’mutton dressed as lamb’ 
has, thank God gone" — and she 
has stopped frying to please every- 
one. “1 do things ray. way." ' 

She' is single and has no children, 
but doesn’t exclude the possibility 
that she might. “A hundred years 


ago. to turn 40 — well, to turn 25 — 
meant you were a spinster. That’s 
absolutely gone. I look at my 
contemporaries, married divorced 
perhaps even twice, with grown-up 
kids. I might still just do it all, back 
to front-" 

Where do the models themselves 
go at the dreaded age of 40? She 
laughs: “To a little graveyard in the 
sky." 

According to Tom Sheridan, of 
the International Mode] Agency, it 
is quite the contrary. Some do very 
well, at least “those who mellow 
into everyone’s typical image of a 
soft and friendly mum". 

A reminder of passing 
time is what hurts 


Turning 40 is jusr a question of 
how you feeL Kim Lavety, of the 
Well Woman Centre, reports that its 
total physical check-up service is 
much in demand “by women on, or 
turning, 40: it’s as if these mainly 
professional women suddenly fed 
the urge to reassure themselves that 
all is well". 


Clare Francis agrees that it is a 
moment for reassessment, but in 
her case a satisfying one: the sailing 
she did in her twenties and thirties 
has given way to her much enjoyed 
writing and far greater confidence. 
“I'm sure young people look at me 
and think: that woman is middle- 
aged. But I think 1 look pretty good. 
I feel terrific I eat healthy food, I 
run a bit, I don't drink. It's 
important not to get in a rut I tiy 
different clothes. I have my hair 
spikey. I’m glad to be a woman now. 
though perhaps 10 years hence 
would be better — the pioneering 
will be out of the way then." 

She adds, however, that turning 
40 does matter it has to matter, but 
in a somewhat unexpected way. 
“It’s to do with the passage of time. I 
hear the word “forty’: half my life 
gone. Time becomes precious." 

Her words were repeated, almost 
identically, by each of the other 
women. As Naomi Buch put it: “I 
never wanted to be 40. It means I'm 
growing older. I'm very afraid of 
growing old." The reminder that 
time is passing, not the fact of being 
40, is what hurts. 


Sweeter life for a young diabetic 


r-*~. a rf.Ayi 
■’ * - ; , * ‘ v ' * » 






M ax seemed a normal, 
healthy, adventurous 
eight-year-old bav in 
the long hoi summer of 1976. 
He was passionate about 
sport, a member of the school 
choir and played the recorder. 

When he started drinking 
excessive amounts of water 
and soft drinks his parents, 
David and Penny Thomas, 
assumed his thirst was due to 
the weather. They put his 
listiessaess down to the 
heatwave, too. and at first they 
did not notice his loss of 
weight. 

It was not until he began to 
wet the bed that they became 
alarmed. Suspecting an infec- 
tion of some kind, they took 
. him to their doctor. “When be 
suggested that Max might 
have diabetes we were 
stunned". David Thomas 
recalls. 

Max went mto hospital for 
tests and treatment. The 
doctor’s suspicions were con- 
firmed. and life for Max and 
his parents would never be the 
same again. But neither, they 
decided, would it be dim- 
inished. 

He was one of between 
1.500 and 2,000 children un- 
der the age of 16 in Britain 
who each year are discovered 
to have diabetes. The onset of 
the condition is often brutally 
sudden, and its diagnosis is 
invariably shattering for the 
family- , - 

Immediately imposed on 
Max and his parents was an 


At the age of eight 
Max Thomas was 
diagnosed a diabetic. 
His story is told in a 
pew book, designed 
to give parents hope 

essential regime ofblood sugar 
tests, meticulously careful diet 
planning and preparation and, 
most of all, wfaat some special- 
ists have described as “the 
tyranny of the needle” — the 
probability of insulin injec- 
tions every day for the rest of 
his life. 

Max’s story, typical of many 
such cases, is included in an 
important new book. Care of 
the Child, with Diabetes* pub- 
lished earlier this month. It is 
the story of bow he and his 
family have learnt to cope 
with his condition. Above all, 
it is a heartening example to 
all parents of bow diabetes in 
childhood can be tackled suc- 
cessfully and how its victims 
can shake off its shadows. 

W hen Max came home 
from hospital, his 
parents began to re- 
shape the family routine. “The 
first couple of nights, neither 
of us slept particuJarfy well, 
and we left all the bedroom 
doors open. Even now, that is 
still the family practice", his 
father says. 

Meal times were dictated by 






Living life to the folk Max Thomas with his parents Penny and David 


Max’s seeds, and his sister 
Lisa and his parents tried to 
eat the same-food as he did to 
avoid discrimination. The 
family's strategy was to em- 
phasize that he was not going 
to be treated unfairly because 
of his condition. 

Diabetics are prone to at- 
tacks of hypogiycaemia and 
byperglycaemia — deficiencies 
or excesses of sugar in the 
blood, better known perhaps 
as simply “insulin- reactions”, 
and referred to by many 
sufferers as ’“hypos” and 
“hypers". 

Max's first mild “hypo" 
came when he was about nine. 
“One' night we were awoken 


by Max apparently talking. He 
was behaving as though be 
were drunk. His speech was 
very slurred and indistinct., 
and the pupils of his eyes were 
widely dilated. We gave him 
two glucose tablets which we 
made him chew and within a 
few minutes he was awake and 
speaking as dear as a bell." 

Two years passed and Max 
experienced his first severe 
"hypo". The evening meal at 
die Thomas home was spa- 
ghetti bolognese. Max seemed 
“rather vacant". He started to 
play with his food. His parents 
trial giving him some “de- 
fizzed” cola, but that made 
him violently sick. “He then 


went into a fit", David Thom- 
as remembers. “His face twist- 
ed, his eyes rolled up. and be 
went rigid. My wife tried 
phoning the hospital, but 
couldn't get through. Finally 
she reached our local GP who 
agreed to come immediately. 

“It's difficult to describe 
adequately our feelings of 
panic and helplessness in try- 
ing to respond to a situation 
we bad not met before." The 
doctor arrived within 10 min- 
utes and gave Max a glucose 
injection. The boy was put to 
bed. the crisis over. 

Since then Max has con- 
quered several mild reactions 
and one severe one. and he 


and his parents now feel 
sufficiently confident to deal 
with them when they occur. 
They have been assured that 
children never die in such an 
attack. Understandably, how- 
ever. their anxieties remain. 

Max has been active in 
school sports, particularly rug- 
by. He was a cub, then a scout, 
a member of a Sunday football 
team, and a keen participant 
in the Duke of Edinburgh 
award scheme. 

What of the’ future? The 
worst assessment oflife expec- 
tancy for a diabetic child is 
just 40 years. 3 prognosis ihai 
might be discarded as pessi- 
mistic within the next decade. 

Dr Arnold Bloom, a consul- 
tant physician and chairman 
of the British Diabetic Associ- 
ation, says advances in re- 
search and treatment are 
continually improving the 
-prospects. These advances in- 
creasingly offer a better and 
longer life. “Everything de- 
pends on how well parents

The etiquette 
of economics 


Do not think that because the 
Government has issued a 
Green Paper on the Taxation 
of Men and Women that the 
problems of females and their 
finances have been settled. 

The whole area & as 
fraught with uncertainty as it 
always has been, and always 
will be until hell freezes over 
or waiters stop handing the 
bill to a male diner who 
happens to be the guest of the 
woman at the same table — 
whichever comes first 

It is tree that in some 
situations women twitter 
needlessly over money mat- 
ters. That astute social com- 
mentator Sally Vincent once 
wrote chat she could never see 
why a woman should be 
embarrassed at buying her 
round in a pab. All she had to 
do was ask the assembled 
company what it wanted, 
walk np to the bar counter, 
give the order, pay up and 
carry the glasses back. 

This is a perfect plan as 
long as the assembled compa- 
ny doesn’t contain a man who 
thinks that all women should 
model themselves on Her 
Majesty and not carry money 
about their person. (Although 
if it is tree that HM doesn't 
walk about with wads of 
fivers, why does she need to 
have a handbag as big as a 
good-sired overnight case for- 
ever over her arm?) 

The questions are really 
those of etiquette rather than 
economics. For instance, how 
many times do yon allow a 
man to take you out to dinner 
before you start Rapping yoor 
own credit card around? Or is 
there supposed to be a tacit 
deal strode that he runs up an 
overdraft in return for your 
beautiful body? 

In which case, is ft morally 
acceptable for you to get his 
beautiful body at no extra 
charge? 

How can you tell, after a 
fairly short acquaintance, 
whether the man you are 
currently walking out with 
belongs to the breed who 
would blush with mortifica- 
tion if you offered to pay for 
his entrance ticket to the V & 
A or gnaw his lower lip in 
disapproval if yon didn’t? 

1 suppose that a good rule 
of thumb is that if he tends to 
trip yon up m his haste to 
walk on the kerbside of the 
pavement he belongs to the 
first kind, and if he lets you do 
most of the driving he belongs 
to the second. 

These are particularly baf- 
fling times for the rather 
older woman of the type that 
American sociologists refer to 
as the “’displaced 
homemaker", as if she had 
been poshed bodily into the 
front garden. For several 
decades she has become used 
to baring a man around the 
place who paid for everything 
from the school fees to the 
newsagent's bill, so when love 
comes calling for the second 
time, she doesn’t have the 
remotest idea how much she 
is supposed to finance it. Half 
the hotel bill for the romantic 
weekend? The outings? The 
drinks? Or should she just 
send him a thank -you note 
and a pot plant on Monday 
morning?

the sexes are so flimsy that I 
think that everybody is al- 
lowed to make them up as 
they go along. For myself. I 
have decided that the way to a 
bad time is not parting with 
my money but organization.. 

So tbe particular bargain 
that 1 strike is that I pay for 
theatre tickets and dinners 
out if someone else will fritter 
away hours of his time deal- 
ing with box-offices that are 
always engaged and restaura- 
teurs who make you spell out 
your name three times before 
they reluctantly agree to let 
you book a table. If I ever 
meet a man with tax-shelters 
and original Renoirs, I sup- 
pose I shall have to change.- 

As women take on more 
monetary clout, it is interest- 
ing to see what comes natural- 
ly and what goes against the 
grain. I suspect that signing 
cheques for tbe mortgage, the 
water rates and tbe service 
charges merely bolster one’s 
sense of being the New 
Woman incarnate. Whereas 
having to provide one's own 
Cabochard and white tulips 
make one feel like an Old 
Boot. 

If you find it difficult to 
express yourself, you will be 
pleased to hear that the 
American greetings card in- 
dustry can now do it for you 
with several lines of “person- 
al-relationship-orieniaied 
cards ". .4 range called the In 
Touch line even has verses 
created by a consulting 
psychiatrist. 

Hallmark cards, which 
were once all hearts and 
flowers, now sell an item that 
reads. "You're getting mar- 
ried ? I dfdn i even know you 
were sleeping together ". And 
there's another that shows'. a 
harassed working woman ai 
an overflowing desk, saying to 
herself. " There's no place like 
home". The picture inside 
shows her at home, up to her 
elbows in housework. I won- 
der it hat the appropriate occa- 
sion is to send off that little 
item? 

A spokesman for the Greet-, 
mg Card Association sa\'s 
that " greeting cards probably 
reflect societal changes more 
rapidly and more accurately 
than any other industry". 
This is rather alarming nws 
since it suggests that the time 
may be passing when, after 
hours of searching for a piece 
of paper, an envelope and a 
pen with ink in it and after 
much head-scratching, we 
were able to write a letter that 
was all our own work.

Back strain, a touch of stiffness, a 
pulled muscle or the effect of lumbago 
or sciatica can all be unpleasantly 
painful. 

PR Spray is the really quick and 
effective way to relieve that pain. 

Unlike most other pain relief sprays. 
PR Spray is cold. It is the spray used by 
professional trainers attending mjunes. 

PR Spray, which is odourless, rapidly 
lowers the temperature of the skin over 
the painful area, and so freezes pain 
out - quickly and effectively.

Educated

Who on earth would want the job 
of sorting out the turmoil in 
- Britain's schools? In fact, at least 
1 2 politicians consider themselves 
in ihe running for the post of 
Education Secretary, to be vacated 
sooner or later by Sir Keith 
Joseph. Now the name of Kenneth 
Baker, the St Paul's and Oxford- 
educated Environment Secretary, 
has been thrown into the ring to 
join better-fancied candidates 
such as Chris Patten. Lord Young 
and Kenneth Clarke. Insiders at 
Tory Central Office think Baker, 
after a year and a half of wrestling 
with local government affairs, 
may feel ready for a new challenge. 
Hecould be tempted by the fed 
that while he languishes near the 
bottom in the Cabinet hierarchy. 
Sir Keith is No & At any rate. 
Baker is known to be hurt not to 
have featured in speculation, 
which has even mentioned Jim 
Pawsev. a Jowly backbencher from 
Rugby and Kenilworth. 

Hot pursuit 

Lancashire coppers are chortling 
over what they swear is a true 
story concerning two women who, 
driving to work, spotted a box 
marked “microwave” lying appar- 
ently abandoned on a pavement 
Public-spiritedly they assumed 
someone has lost their new oven 
and picked it up, resolving to hand 
it in at Preston police station. A 
couple of miles later, though, a 
siren-blaring police car forced 
them to stop, and a furious 
policeman demanded: “Wbat do 
you think you are doing with our 
radar trap?"

Mounihatten and the Men of the

describing himself as a “Jewish 
Atheist”. Hauling him up on a 
charge. Mounihatten ordered him 
.to visit a synagogue in Plymouth, 
where HMS Kelly was docked. 
There a rabbi, in cahoots with 
Mountbanen. gave the rating 
three lengthy instruction sessions 
designed 10 bring him back to the 
faith. From then on, Mountbanen 
greeted the (gentile) seaman with 
“Shalom”. 

Bach-lash 

Last week's disclosure that an 
American company has refused to 
locate in Wales because it objects 
.to the populace’s accent has 
outraged Welsh Labour MPs. Set 
of them — Donald Anderson, 
Alan Williams, Gareth Warded, 
Ted Rowlands, Ron Davies and 
Ray Powell — have tabled an early 
day motion in the Commons 
expressing “anger and 
puzzlement” at the Americans’ 
decision, noting that they are “so 
ungodly they cannot recognize the 
■language and accent of heaven”, 
and warning. “They will shortly 
have to get used to that same 
accent being used by the United 
Kingdom's next prime minister.”

The BBC is to use Jeffrey Archer

war during the World Cup this 
summer. The American-made 
mini-series of his novel, Cain and 
Abel . originally scheduled for

opposite the matches, which will 
be exclusively on 1TV. Archer, the 
Tory deputy chairman, is clearly 
flattered by the decision of the 
BBC 1 controller. Michael Grade. 
“No one knows more about

, told me yesterday. And nobody

PHS 



The most important question 
raised by America's strike against 
Libya is whether it is an affirma- 
tion of a new strategic approach to 
the Mediterranean and the Middle 
East, or whether it is a shortlived 
improvisatory- tactic that will 
end — as with the Lebanese epi- 
sode of 1982-84 - with America's 
military, and political advantages 
being squandered, resulting in a 
loss of power and influence. And 
underlying that is the question of 
the extent of a nation slate’s 
power, and of a superpower’s 
responsibilities to its allies. 

Witir foe exception of Britain, 
the European members of Nhto 
have preferred to avoid antagoniz- 
ing Libya, rather than help toe ally 
on whose power they depend for 
protection against Soviet am- 
bitions. The grounds for such a 
decision are not immediately ob- 
vious. Libya is not a great power, 
the Arab states have neither the 
desire nor the capacity to band 
together in its defence^ and the 
world is said to have an oil glut 

There remains the matter of 
exports to Libya, and the employ- 
ment which a relatively small 
number of Europeans have found 
in that country. If exports and jobs 
are beneficial to European coun- 
tries. imports and Western exper- 
tise are essential to Libya. But 


There is a remarkable .American 
play at the Royal Court Theatre 
(only to the end of this week, 
though it will reopen at the Albery 
on May 20 fora limited run) called 
The Normal Heart after a line in 
Auden's best-known bad poem. 
The heart thus referred to by the 
author, Larry Kramer, is the 
homosexual one, and its normal- 
ity is proclaimed in a work which 
examines the homosexual 
predicament through the burning- 
glass of the Aids epidemic. In the 
United States, the “gay plague”, as 
it has been called (because its 
known incidence among homo- 
sexual men is proportionately for 
higher than among heterosexuals) 
has so for struck down some 
20.000 people; half of these have 
died of it. and it is virtually certain 
that all the others will do so as 
well, together with anybody else 
who contracts the disease, for 
which there is as yet no cure or 
palliative. 

Mr Kramer is himself a homo- 
sexual, but the play is auto- 
biographical in more than that 
literal sense. It has two main 
themes, of which the second is the 
more interesting: the first takes the 
form of a violent assault on the 
heterosexual world which ignored 
Aids while it seemed to be 
confined to homosexuals, or even 
felt that the disease was some kind 
of retribution for the very feet of 
their homosexuality. The role that 
is based on the author's own 
experience is that of a leading 
homosexual -who rejects the in- 
direct and temperate approach of 
his fellows in the endeavour to 
awaken public interest in what is 
happening so that the sufferers 
may get help and that adequate 
research may be urgently under- 
taken: the odd man out wants to 
lum the campaign into a real 
Kuhurkampf denouncing hetero- 
sexual society as the butcher of 
homosexuals and insisting that no 
progress towards acceptance and 
equality wifi ever be made until 
homosexual love and physical 
sexual relations are recognized as 
entirely valid. 

That, as I say, is the first 
principle of the play, and it is 
mounted in a finely acted drama 
of formidable power, which does 
not quite conceal the feet that- in 
essence it is really a homosexual 
version of Love Story (or, for my 
older readers. The Hasty 
Heart) - that is, a love doomed 
because one of the lovers is dying 
of an incurable disease. But it is 
the second aspect of the author's 
case that is the more interesting; 
before he arrives at it, he makes 
another, self-contained point 
which has had the effect of 
drawing down considerable criti- 
cism on his head from fellow 
homosexuals. For Mr Kramer has 
faced, with implacable honesty, 
the question that the more rabid 
haters of homosexuals . have 
leaped to answer .is Aids the 
homosexuals' own feult? 

Not. of course, in the 
homophobic sense, as a punish- 
ment for perversion, but in the 
extraordinary promiscuity in 
which some homosexuals indulge. 
American research suggests that a 
promiscuous homosexual will be

governments eanndt be .guided 
"exclusively by economic interests. 

Whether this particular US 
venture succeeds or • not, - the 
behaviour of its* European allies 
will, have made foe Nato connec- 
tion seem less desirable in the eyes 
of the American public. 

Critics of US action have 
stressed one theme: that the US 
cannot hope to defeat terrorism by 
force-This is puzzling. Terrorists 
resort to force to achieve their 
aims If a military force greater 
than that wielded by te rrorists is 
brought to bear on them, they will 
be destroyed or neutralized. 
Again, if a state such as Libya 
organizes terrorism, then a point 
must exist at which the benefits of 
terrorism become smaller than the 
costs. 

It can. of course, be argued that 
the force brought to hear in 
America's attack was both in- 
sufficient and of the wrong kind. 
This is an argument for applying 
greater force, and applying it with 
more skill and better judgement. It 
cannot be argued that terrorism is 
invulnerable, which is absurd and 
nonsensical. But it is a yearning 
for foe absurd and nonsensical 
which one senses to underlie the 


assertion that force cannot defeat 
terrorism. The yearning is dan- 
gerous because it does not come to 

terms with a world made up of 
sovereign states which recognize 
no superior, and where the final 
arbiter must be force or its threat. 
Should the US be the only one to 
forswear the use of force? 

. Another argument frequently 
heart is that “moderate” Arab 
slates find ihe American move 
against Libya embarrassing, it 
force them to declare solidarity 
with Gadaffi, for fear that their 
regimes might be endangered- It is 
true that they, equally with the 
“extremist” states, are haunted by 
insecurity and fear. But Libya and 
its Middle East allies have been 
attacking and ‘ denouncing the 
moderates for years, and if US 
resolve were to -weaken, these 
attacks would become even more 
dangerous, as Nasser became 
more dangerous to his Arab rivals 
after the Suez debacle. It is thus by 
no means clear that Arab mod- 
erates will best protect themselves 
by insincerely placating enemies 
Proponents of these arguments 
often affect . a tone of weary 
superiority. This is most observ- 
able when Libyan actions are 



likely to have some 1.500 sexual 
contacts in a lifetime; the research 
took account of the American 
institution of the “bath house”, 
which is a euphemism for a place 
in which male homosexuals gather 
in substantial numbers to indulge 
in repeated single and multiple 
sexual encounters (apparently it is 
not at all uncommon for . a 
participant in such orgies to have, 
in the course of a single evening, 
sexual relations with a number of 
partners running into double fig- 
ures). The bath houses, I believe, 
have not made an appearance in 
Britain; there are recognized meet- 
ing-places where a land of homo- 
sexual Stock Exchange takes place, 
but the astounding figure of 1,500 
sexual exchanges in a homo- 
sexual’s lifetime should presum- 
ably be heavily trimmed for 
Britain. In any case, the figure, 
even in America, applies to a 
minority. 

Even so. the point remains, and 
this is how it is made in Mr 
Kramer's play, by the character 
' based on the author - 

“When are we going to admit we 
might be spreading this? We have 
simply flicked ourselves silly for 
years and years, and sometimes 
we’ve done it in the filthiest 
places . . . Good for yoa, Tommy , 
maybe you haven't, but others 
you've been with have, so what's 
the difference? - . . It's not your 
right to kill me. This is not a civil 
rights issue, this is a contagion 

issue We know. enough to cool 

it for a while! And save fives while 
we do.” 


That 1 must say, is an approach 
considerably more honest than the 
one adopted by Britain’s chief 
medical officers of health in their 
statement reproduced in the cur- 
rent government information 
campaign on the subject of Aids. 
In the full-page question-and- 
answer advertisements that have 
been appearing in the newspapers,, 
they ask the question; “Does Aids 
only affect homosexuals?", and 
answer it with an unqualified 
"No” That is, of course, the literal 
truth, but it is an evasion .of a 
much more important truth. Mr 
Kramer has faced the truth they 
have evaded, and be has tire right, 
having done so. to make his main 
claim. It goes like this: 

“l belong to a culture that 
includes Proust, Henry . James, 
Tchaikovsky, Cole Porter, Plato, 
Socrates, Aristotle, Alexander the 
Great, Michelangelo, Leonardo da 
Vinci, Christopher Marlowe, Walt 
Whitman. Herman Melville, Ten- 
nessee Williams, Byron, E. M- 
Forster. Lorca, Auden. Francis 
Bacon, James Baldwin, John May- 
nard Keynes, Dag Hamraar- 
skjold . . . Why don’t they teach 
any of this in the schools? . . . The 
only way well have real pride is 
when we demand recognition of a 
culture that isn't just sexual . . . 
All through history we’ve been 
there; but we have to claim it, and 
identify who was in it, and 
articulate what's in oar minds and 
hearts and all our creative 
contributions to this earth. And 
until ... we organize ourselves 
block by neighbourhood by city by 


explained stemming from Is- 
raeli’ intransigence and US inabu- 
itv or unwillingness to press for 
change: It is. however, for from 
dear that a settlement of the Arab- 
Israeli Question is possible: or if it 
were, that anyone knows wbai Ji 
might be. A settlement is for from 
being in Washington's gift. 

Even if the Arab-ISradi conflict 
were to be settled, peace and quiet 
is unlikely to descend on the 
Middle East; other ferocious con- 
flicts court easily break out. It js 
also a mistake to think that the US 
has a clear duty and a pressing 
interest to exert itself in the cause 
of Aiab-Israefi peace. 

The critics of. US action have to 
assume one of two things— dial 
the US is a superpower or that it is 
merely a very rich and powerful 
Mate. If it is a. superpower, the 
status. implies a crucial role in the 
defence of its Western allies. The 
discharge of such a role is in- 
compatible with finicky .defi- 
nitions of the boundaries of Naio 
territories. 

And if the US is simply a 
powerful, state, then it cannot be 
denied the right to resort to force 
when its interests require — a right 
enjoyed by every single state 
known to history.

Why gays must

The Nordic spring of discontent 


Oslo 

There is" trouble in paradise. 
Scandinavia has long been a 
byword among, its European 
neighbours for the anodyne (albeit 
affluent) brand, of social efficiency 
created when enlightened bureau- 
crats have their way. But now it is 
tied up in knots. 

Not only is the Nortic spring 
later than usual this .yean it Iras 
already cost the region a Viking’s 
ransom in a series of industrial 
conflicts that threaten to rumble 
on well into the summer. 

Norway is just beginning to 
surface from a week of industrial 
chaos, its worst labour dispute in 
55 years, during which about 
1 20.000 people, more than a tenth 
of the employed population, were 
locked out of their jobs in five 
industries. Norwegian oil and gas 
production in the North Sea was 
shut down for almost three weeks 
and the unrest spread at one point 
to -the British sector, cutting 
supplies of natural gas to British 
indusuy by about 40 per cent 
Negotiations with civil servants 
have foundered, and a strike in the 
public sector is a possibility. 


In Finland, where the last strike 
of any importance was recorded in 
1 97 1 . a quarter of a million blue- 
collar workers walked out for three 
days last month in the worst such 
action in3Q years. No sooner bad 
they relumed than 15,000 public- 
service workers called an indefi- 
nite strike that has ail but halted 
rail and air traffic as it has spread 
throughout the country, involving 
more than 50.000 people. 

Even in Iceland, where a curi- 
ous strategy of mass resignations 
has evolved in response to strict 
anti-strike legislation, a two-week 
technicians' dispute all but 
blanked out television screens and 
cut some remote telephone ser- 
vices. Half the nation's police 
force has threatened to resign from 
July i, provokinga public reaction 
midway between hilarity and 
apprehension. 

Only Denmark and Sweden 
have so far been spared the worst, 
but the peace that prevails is an 
uneasy one. Denmark last year 
suffered a series of Short strikes 
involving about 100.000 workers. 
The government imposed a two- 
year 2 per cent agreement. Sweden 


pulled back only this month from 
a dispute that would have put 
more than 300.000 people out of 
work. 

Neither country is looking- for- 
ward to next year, when the truth 
of the “last gasp” theory, of 
Scandinavian industrial relations 
will be put to yet another test ‘ 

That theory bolds that tra- 
ditional methods of- centralized 
collective bargaining,' based on 
wide-ranging government powers 
to enforce arbitration, have bro- 
ken down -under the pressure of 
unspecified “economic and soda! 
factors eroding the Nordic tra- 
dition of striving for consensus”, 
as one analyst wrote. 

The natives themselves, while 
undeniably restless, dispute this 
outsider’s view with some ve- 
hemence. The Norwegians, for 
example, have a saying that 
translates easily across the various 
Nordic borders: “We are always 
broke but never poor." The key 
words are “equal” and “never”. 
Despite the relatively recent acces- 
sion to power of right-of-centre 
coalition governments in Norway. 
Denmark and Iceland, and the 


undeniable example set to their 
Nordic, neighbours by new fiscal 
brooms, the approach to the 
social-democratic welfare state of 
those conservative administra- 
tions is very different from that of, 
say, thfe British. Conservatives: 

It is die difference between^ fine- 
tuning (or at worst ifcconsiderad 
tinkering)’ and wholesale demo- 
lition. Accordingly, what; the Brit- 
ish see as industrial chaos and 
thinly disguised class .warfare is 
described here as “increasing in? 
siability in the labour market"/ 

Sven Amstrup. Nordic.Couorfl 
labour consultant, sees'no threat 
whatever. to Scandinavian -social 
democracy, collective bargaining 
traditions, consensus dr anything 
else.“Tbe Nordic governments are 
trying to strengthen their ability to 
compete in ihe world market by 
keeping inflation arid prices 
down, he says mildly. “It's easier 
to lower the price than to improve 
the quality of the goods. 

“Nobody wishes to change so- 
cial democracy in Scandinavia. 
Not even foe Conservatives.”

An outrage to 


$t ate into a united visible commu- 
nity that fights, back, .we’re 
doomed . . . Being defined by our 
cocks is literally killing us. Most 
‘ weall be reduced to becoming our 
own murderers?” 

The eloquence of that plea must 
not be allowed to disguise the 
boldness of his demand, which is 
for a recognition of a\ special, 
separate role, function and po- 
sition for homosexuals in a hetero- 
sexual world. I have to say — and I 
write as one who has repeatedly 
come to the defence of homosex- 
uals suffering discrimination, 
injustice and contempt (and how 
fear) — that ft cannot be accepted. 
Either a homosexual is like the rest 
of ns except in the matter of sexual 
orientation (which is what I 
believe), or the very feet of his 
homosexuality sets him apart 
from — even, it seems, above — 
the rest of us. The names in flat 
list of homosexuals (which itself 
needs thoroughly glossing) have 
nothing m common other than 
their sexual nature, and with one 
or two obvious exceptions, I do 
not believe that their homosexual- 
ity could be deduced from their 
contribution to “a culture that 
isn’t Just sexual”. 

After decades of brutal in- 
comprehension . and indeed 
. persecution, the homosexuals’, de- 
sire to assert their nature pos- 
itively rather than defensively is 
• fiflly understandable. But to assert 
it in terms of an -entirety separate 
- nature is to risk-exchanging one 
kind of ghetto for another. It is 
true, as Mr Kramer charges, that 
the heterosexual world, at any rate 
in itspolitical aspect, ignored Aids 
while the triague seemed to be 
confined to homosexuals. It is also 
true that millions of homosexuals 
throughout the world lead per- 
sonal fives of decency and integ- 
rity. And of course iris true that 
there have been great artists. 

' scientists, administrators * and ; 
teachers who- were homosexuaL ! 
But that does not seerq to me to 
add up to' “a world elsewhere”. If 
it is wrong, as IbeBeve it is, to de- 
fine a black man by his blackness, 
it must beno less wrong to define a 
homosexual by his homosexual- 
ity* whether the definition (in 
either case) is made by his enemies 
or his friends. ' . -v 

Perhaps we should not think in 
terms of “homosexuals” at. all, 
much less of a “homosexual 
community” That, r recognize, is 
easy for a heterosexual to say; 
these who still face derision and 
rejection for the accident of then: 
nature, and who are. now as a 
group more at risk from a horrible 
and fingering death than; hetero- 
sexuals, can be pardoned for their 
impatience and 'anger. But. the 
impatience and anger will be 
wasted (as weft as resisted) if they 
lead to claims for a separate status, 
let alone a special one. Otherwise, 
we may all find ourselves, homo- 
sexuals and heterosexuals alike,

A "bloody public spending round” 
has beta forecast for this autumn 
by The. Economist, which usually 
has a . fair sense of the 

government’s ^.inteniiOTS- - As the 

lobbies in defence of pnbfic ser- 
vices grow ever louder and more 
confident of public support, many 
Conservatives .will be manmg mr 
cover — including some of-ihose 
who until ^oniy recently woe 
publicly denoundng-wasK in the 
public services. • ■ ■ ‘ 

There is soinetmqg pasting 
about the Conservative perfor- 
mance on all' of this. For a party 
that prometes- an image .of man- 
agerial competence and business 
efficiency, it has spedacularly 
faffed to convince the voters that 
there is- any. way of ru nn i n g 
-services more efficiently-^ The 
rhetoric is ah about admin- 
istrative streamlining and enhanc- 
ing productivity. The specific 
proposals always seem to be cuts 
In frontline services. 

• As far as education is cos-' 
cerned, the government has 
Warned the local authorities. 
Manag ement- it claims, is OUT of 
its ’ hands. But in the National 
Health Service ther e- can be no 
such excuse. The government has 
been ruthless in appointing its 
own people to tire hea lth au t hor^ 
ties; and bringing in hard-nosed 
administrators to stand up to the 
vested interests. And it basalraays 
insisted that there are not and will 

not be cuts in rcal.senrices. 

■ And yet the derisions that ftese 
administrators actually make 
seem sometimes to be deliberately 
intended to grind a sted-capped 
bed into the most vulnerable penis, 
of society.- For instance; in these 
days of tiring concert over cfctfld 
abuse, nicest and sexual assaults 
on children, psychiatric services 
for famil ies ana children are under 
threat throughout London, fa 
north London the Tavistock clinic 
has had three out of- five consul- 
tant child psychiatry poos frozen 
and isturinngaway referrals at foe 
rate of five or six a week. Soufoof

foremost national centre of 
psychiatric medicine, are reefing

Until Wednesday last week 
_ x the life of every black man and 
. - woman in South Africa was 
governed by his passbook. It 
decreed where he could live, 
• work and che. . During the last 
40 years failure -to. carry -or 
. possess it sent ait estimated 10 
. million black South Africans 
: lo jaiL 

But influx control — the 
'■ jC afleaesq tie-maze of laws and 
. regulations. of which the- pass- 
book was the outward 
. most visible .sign — did not 
work. It was hideously ex pen- 
sive requiring the services of a 
vast . and mostly, hostile 
\ bureaucracy; it diverted the 

u police from, hunting criminals 

to chasing- pass offenders, thus 
casting them .for aJl time in the 
role of the oppressors" rather 
than the protectors of- other- 
: wise law-abiding citizens; and 
as the .. instrument of 
_ Verwoerdian apartheid' which 

decreed that blacks were tem- 
porary .’ sojourners in white 
South Africa, it was a constant 
reminder of their outsider 
status in ih eland of their birth. 

The damage it did was 
mcalccifable. For, as Pretoria 
.eventually admitted, nothing 
could stem the Third World 
tide to the cities where the 
promise if not the reality was a 
great deal brighter than life in 
overcrowded and 

inproverished homelands. 

And so finally, on Wednes- 
day last week, declaring influx 
control to be hurtful, wasteful 
and a failure. President Botha 
effectively abolished the pass 
laws. His announcement was 
at once greeted with. the. criti- 
cism of “too little, too late”. , 

It is certainly too late for the 
millions ^ who have been 
criminalised by the failure to 


l "■ 


cany a passbook and it is too 
: little for those who seek aoth- 
. ing less than an immediate 
- abdication of white rule. But 
'right up to the moment that 
they were abolished, the pass 
laws were regularly denounced 
as one of the cruellest im- 
positions. of apartheid. And it 
\ is both unhelpniland untrue to 
brush their abolition aside as 
. nothing more -than amimeie- 
- vant concession to black rage. 

A - promise to re-examine 
influx control some years ago 
led to the appointment of a 
government inquiry which 
was swayed by vigorous 
representations from South 
Africa's commerce and in- 
dustry to the effect that the 
system could not be 
“improved" only abolished. 
The decision to-do so was 
taken last year before radical 
black organisations, seeking to 
portray the move as a con- 
1 Cession, extorted by them- 
selves threatened to go on a 
pass burning spree: this May. 
Pretoria'sdelay in announcing 
-its decision is a reflection of its 
lamentable marketing. 

Those who have been long 
innured. to Pretoria's habit of 
promising more and 
delivering less, have reacted to 
the decision with their cus- 
tomary scepticism. But a list of 
the influx, control laws to be 
abolished indicates no fresh, if 
covert, plan to restrict black 
freedom of movement. 
Adriritttedly, residents of the 
“independent" homelands, 
.will not for the time being 
.enjoy the same mobility, .but 
this reflects not so much the 
South African Government’s 
fraudulent intentions as the 
fact that it is trapped by its 
homelands policy into respect- 


A NATION OF SHAREHOLDERS 


* The Treasury’s just-published 
poll on share ownership, 
which suggests it has spread to 
some 14 per cent of adults, has 
been received with a certain 

' amount: ofscepticism. This 
was to be expected. With', tins 
ppm "the Treasury’s estiniate of 
the number ’Wj.inctividual 
shareholders has dramatically 
doubled. At six million^ it is for 
higher /than the Stock 
' Exchange’s estimates. With 
due allowance for doubts, 
however, the poll does suggest 
that personal share owners 
have again become a signifi- 
cant minority. 

, . . This is a welcome develop- 

* raent which has occurred at 
encouraging speed. The Trea- 
sury poll is perhaps most- 
interesting when it presents 
evidence of the diversity of the 
new shareholders, both so- 
cially and geographically. At 
the same time, it raises ques- 
tions as to how this trend can 
best be encouraged further. 

For some of the purposes 
desired by Mrs Thatcher, un- 
der the mono ‘popular capital- 
ism’, it matters not at all which 
route to the accumulation of 
personal financial assets is 
chosen. Independence of the 
state, liberation from the 
threat of dependence on social 
security in old age, will be 
secured by an increase m 
personal • savings, whatever 
form it takes. The possession 
of a stream of personal income 
brings independence, just as 
the possession of\ physical 
property does. 

Yet there are purposes for 
which direct share ownership 
is desirable as an end in itself; 
and it is in the selection of 
these that the Government 
still needs to clarify its objec- 
tives. An equity stake provides 
an identity of interest between 
shareholders among the gen- 
eral public and managers in 

Sign of grief 

From Commander R. D. Wail 
RS. (Rei’d) 

Sir. In the maritime context mere 
is noth mg: obscure or mysterious 
about either the custom of wearing 
■flags ar half-mast or how they 
should be worn. 

Ships use flags , to convey a 
message. In ships of the Royal 
Navy ensigns are worn at_ half- 
; mast to indicate death, usually on 
the day of the funeral and only 
until the time of hnerment or, at 
sea. commitment “to tire deep”. It 
is also a mark of respect or salute 
to the deceased. 

The correct position is as de- 
scribed - at half-mast. The upper 
toggle or swivel, by which the flag 
is secured to the halliard, should 
be at the halfway mark between 
truck and heeL . . 

-.- The reason is to dispel doubt 
anv higher ix may be mistaken tot. 
sloppy hoisting or inattention to 
. stretched halliards; any lower the 
flv footer edge) of the ensign may 
fdui the guard rail and/or null 
plating. • 

- There is no connection between 
the custom of half-masting for. 
mounting and. as has been sug- 
gested. anv wartime mam oi a 


industry — something that has 
been signally lacking in British 
society. Many differences in

Britain and the United States,

share ownershipin America: 

: Hie critical question, how- 
ever, is r the degree of personal 
involvement needed to create 
this desirable element of social 
cohesion. Must my. income 
depend heavily on the fate of 
two or three companies, or 
more vaguely on the profitabil- 
r ity of industry as a whole? 
Must it be closely linked to 
British companies? How can 
"thiy 'be - reconciled with my 
essential personal freedom to 
4 secure the best return on my 
savings? The Chancellor’s pro- 
posals for ’Personal Equity 
Plans', unveiled in the Budget, 
provide an interesting test 
case. 

- Managing a small share 
portfolio is an expensive as 
well as a hazardous business. 
Its new popularity, so hearten- 
ingly revealed by the Treasury 
survey, has undoubtedly re- 
ceived a stimulus from the 
coincidence of well- man a g ed 
privatisation and a bull mar- 
ket Attitudes to share-owning 
could easily turn sour if the 
bears came to dominate the 
stockmarket — an ever-present 
danger of which we had a 
gentle reminder last week. In 
. these circumstances, small 
shareholders may well feel a 
greater need to spread their 
risks. And if personal share 
ownership is to become some- 
thing more than an entertain- 
ing hobby, the smallest 
shareholder needs to be given 
this opportunity.

Stripping of grain 

From Mr CE Stremher

Report” (March 2A ) about a 
“new” grain harvester and the

states. Free entry into South 
Africa for their citizens, there- 
fore, will have to await the 
promised bilateral negotia- 
tions on dual citizenship. 

Thus, for once, scepticism 
about Pretoria's intentions 
fogs rather than promotes 
understanding of what is a 
fundamental reform. Indeed, 
if the sceptics of the Left refuse 
to recognise it as such, the 
legions on the Afrikaner Right 
(who have Cassandra’s gift of 
making prophecies that are 
accurate but disbelieved and 
who have so for been proved 
right in their estimate that 
reform would develop an ir- 
resistible momentum leading 
to' further reform) know only 
too well that it cannot be 
dismissed as cosmetic. For it 
strikes at the very foundation 
of apartheid — the imperma- 
nence of blacks in “white 
South Africa”. The abolition 
of the pass laws, as much as 
President Botha's promise of 
freehold title and the restora- 
tion of citizenship, must lead 
inexorably io the granting of 
further political rights to 
blacks whom Pretoria this 
week tacitly admitted lobe an 
integral part of South African 
society. 

That admission has been 
dismissed as inadequate by 
those who will be satisfied by 
nothing . less than a revolu- 
tionary transfer of power to the 
African National Congress and 
who deny the achievements of 
reform Ity constantly moving 
the goalposts. Those who be- 
lieve that reform remains a 
better choice than revolution 
should see the removal of the 
pa ss laws as one more useful 
step along the right road.

'Spread the risk -and therefore 
interpose themselves between

companies. The Chancellor I 
has to decide whether this . 
would dilute his intentions for | 
PEPs too much, or whether the i 
exclusion of such vehicles for 
savings would destroy the 
appetite for his new scheme. 

Since the tax advantages 
offered for PEPs are distinctly 
modest, it would be best to 
define their coverage as widely 
as possible. There is, however, 
one form of personal 
shareholding that mhst nec- 
essarily belmked to individual 
companies; a form that has 
been increasing most satisfac- 
torily and needs still further 
stimulus. That is employee 
share ownership. 

. For further developments in 
this area we await plans also 
touched on in the Budget: on 
new tax advantages for profit- 
sharing. The Chancellor 
should be urged to introduce 
these on a for more radical 
scale than the trickle of in - 
centives offered through PEPs. 
But he should also take care 
not to divert attention or 
resources from employee share 
ownership. So for as possible, 
the Chancellor’s proposals for 
linking profits and pay should 
build on existing schemes for 
providing remuneration in the 
form ofa stake in the company 
itself. It would be a long-term 
loss if one good new idea were 
to supersede another not yet 
out of its infancy.

These machines actually knock 
the ripe grain from the standing 
com, which is threshed by a drum 
and bagged. However, the by- 
product (or the main product if 
there is a poor crop of. Norfolk 
reed) is the standing straw, which 
can be harvested with a con- 
ventional hinder and used far 
thatching without the need for 
either a separate threshing or 
combing process. 

The drawback to the machine 
was that it could not cope readily 
with laid crops and despite experi- 
ments with rice harvesting in 
Indonesia, wasquickly superseded 
by the combine-harvester. One 
such machine exists in working 
order housed in some thatched 
form buildings at Alscot Park, 
near Stratford-on-Avon.

Village schools 
under threat 

From Mr. C. J. Bunyan 
Sir, When Parliament gave the 
nod to the Education (School 
Premises) Regulations on July 10, 
1981, did they realise that, buried 
deep within it, was the kiss of 
death for hundreds of village 
schools? 

In sub-paragraph 3 of paragraph 
3 of schedule 4 to regulation 5 was 
a provision that wjJl force local 
education departments either to 
close small schools or to spend a 
great deal or ratepayers* money on 
extending them unnecessarily. 

Regulation -8 specifies the mini- 
mum classroom space per child. 
For all categories of school this 
figure is denned on a per capita 
basis, except for schools with 80 
children or less. Most rural 
schools foil within this category. 
For them, there is a minimum 
space requirement pier head plus a 
fixed additional requirement of 70 
square metres regardless of the 
number of children. 

This discriminatory clause 
means that children who attend a 
school with 31 pupils (as my 
children do) officially require 
4.058 square metres each, whereas 
children at a school with 10 times 
as many pupils officially require 
only 2.24 square metres each. So 
Easton Royal School, which 
comfortably accommmodated 51 
children in the year when these 
regulations were passed by Par- 
liament, is now deemed to hie large 
enough for only 13! The same 
building, if part of a larger school, 
would officially hold 42 children. 

The Wiltshire Education 
Department, which for reasons of 
educational dogma dislikes small 
schools, has naturally seized on 
these regulations, which have to 
be acted on by 1991, as a excuse to 
close Easton Royal and merge it 
into a larger school some distance 
away. 

Hundreds of other village 
schools will suffer the same fote in 
the next five years as a direct result 
of this poisonous sub-paragraph, 
despite the opposition of parents, 
teachers, governors and local 
communities.

Grazing policy 

From Mrs Winifred Dixon 
Sir, In their pardonable enthu- 
siasm .for keeping ancient monu- 
ments looking tidy by feeing the 
sites out far commercfol grazing, 
the English. Heritage arm of the 
Department of the Environment 
may be doing more harm than 
good. The feet, of cattle blur the 
edges of earthworks and break up 
the soil, leading to erosion and to 
damage or dispersal of 
archaeological remains. 

For example, at Ludgershall 
Castle it is planned to pen bullocks 
in the southern ringwork where an 
unexcavated medieval hall Iks a 
few indies under the surface. 

The grazing , policy of English 
Heritage should be amended to 
take account of the damage likely 
to be done by heavy animals with 
large hooves. In brief; the motto 
should be: sheep, yes; cattle, no. ■

Cricket on TV 

From Mr EH. Vale 
Sir, In his review of the state of 
county cricket (April 22), written 
no doubt on a wet. cold day at 
Fenner’s, Richard S tree ton lists a 
number of matters in which lovers 
of the game are interested. 

Amongst these concerns are the 
covering of pitches, slow over 
rates, the numbers of one-day 
games, the length of county 
championship matches and the 
points and league table system 
itself 

1, too. feel that the promotion 
and welfare of the county 
championship is of paramount 
impona&ce to the wellbeing of 
English cricket and that it pro- 
vides the only form of com- 
petition for professional players 
which leads to improved stan- 
dards in Test matches; both games 
are the only true challenge to be 
found in the original unrestricted 
form of cricket.

companies, through your col- 

The chapel trail 

From Mr Christopher Steil 
Sir, Mrs Mason (April 12) need 
not navel as for as North Wales to 
satisfy her interest in cbapeUr, 
some of the oldest and best are on 
her own doorstep. Lancashire and 
Cheshire are exceptionally rich in 
chapels and meeting houses dating

the present time. . 

For those who wish to make a 
serious contribution to their study 
may I commend a recent publica- 
tion by the Council for British 
Archaeology, Haileujah! Record-

which draws attention to the 
importance of these buildings

Scholarships for royal birthday 


From Mr A. Christodou/ou and Mr 
P. B. Hetherington 
Sir, Professor Alec Ross (April 22) 
proposes, to celebrate her 
Majesty's 60th birthday, the in- 
auguration of Queen’s scholar- 
. ships for Commonwealth students 
and scholars at British universities 
and polytechnics; and he hopes 
that other Commonwealth coun- 
tries might be encouraged in 
similar enterprise. 

His proposal is altogether laud- 
able and, to our sure knowledge, 
entirety feasible. We should be 
happy to see such commemo- 
rative enlargement, in the name of 
the Head of the Commonwealth, 
to the provision already made 
throughout the Commonwealth 
by the Commonwealth Scholar- 
ship and Fellowship Plan For 
scholarship interchange between 
all pans of the Commonwealth. 

In this, the 26th year of the 
plan's existence, there are in 
Britain over 900 scholars and 
fellows, from nearly 40 Common- 
wealth countries, on awards of- 
fered by the Commonwealth 
Scholarship Commission in the 
United Kingdom; and as befits a 
scheme which is genuinely 
Commonwealth-wide in its pur- 
view and operation, Britain has 
nominated its own candidates for 
awards reciprocally offered by up 

Balance of power 

From Lady Grimond 
Sir, Few will disagree with Sir 
Reginald Hibbert (April 19) when 
he urges Europeans to get their act 
together and one is glad that when 
they do so the result is not always 
as idiotic as the decision to sell 
cheap butler to Libya. 

There will be more doubt 
whether Sir Reginald is right in 
suggesting that European re- 
actions to President Reagan's 
bombardment of Libya reflect 
their relative lack of power rather 
than their different perceptions of 
how to deal with terrorism. 

The Christian Science Monitor 
has described President Reagan's 
foreign policy in terms of the 
mono, “Run it up the flagpole and 
see if it flutters”. The wind that 
waves the flag of US foreign policy 
nowadays is very much a domestic 
breeze and it does not blow this - 
side of the Atlantic. Inevitably 
foreign policy powered by domes- 
tic considerations will run the 
danger of conflict with allies. 

In the particular matter of 
terrorism the attitudes of Europe- 
ans ought not to be dismissed as 
craven and self-seeking. Most of 
the European states in the EEC 
have themselves been victims of 
terrorist campaigns over a number 
of years, in more . than one 
instance actively assisted by Colo- 

A lawyer’s worth 

From Mr David J. Chinery 
Sir, Whilst I have every sympathy 
with my . colleague, Mr Bruno 
Mannorstein (April 22), he at least 
has the crumb of comfort of 
knowing that his application for 
payment has been received and 
dealt with, even if the net result is 
both derisory and insulting. 

In this town, in common with 
my fellow practitioners, I have 
been on standby and have been 
called out on at least one occasion 
every week since January 1. Not 
only have 1 received no payment 
whatsoever, I have not even had a 
bill assessed. 

The theory, of course, is that 
those of us with a substantial 
criminal practice stand to be 
called out anyway, and the rates of 
remuneration as duty solicitor are 
marginally higher than as own 
solicitor. 

mans, that there may be a 
substantial potential audience 
who would enjoy seeing more than 
the current level of coverage of the 
three-day game. This is nonnaUy 
restricted to the final three balls of 
the winner’s last match of the 
season. Surely, a weekly edited 
highlights for 40 minutes or so to 
cover a couple of matches would 
find enough viewers to justify the 
cost of covering the games? 

Television need look no further 
than the Press to see bow isolated 
is their view that the county 
championship merits almost no 
coverage. Indeed, if the news- 
papers cut out their reporting of 
these matches Z suspect their 
circulation would suffer dras- 
tically. 

The BBC had their hand forced 
over transmissions from the West 
Indies and I dearly hope that the 
public can do so again and 
persuade the TV moguls of the 
interest in the county champion- 
ship. 

Yours faithfully.

Loss of Enrydice 

From Mr T. R. Lawrence 
Sir. L too, was intrigued by your 
“On this day” column in which 
you reprinted the report of March 
25, 1878, on the sinking of HMS 
Eurydice off the Isle of Wight. 

Not everybody seems to have 
been moved by the tragedy as 
Winston Churchill was (letter. 
April 19). There were those who 
cashed in on the disaster by 
manufacturing souvenir artefacts 
from parts of die wreckage. I have 
a tobacco box, inherited from my 
grandfather, bearing a small brass 
plaque inscribed “Eurydice sunk 
24/3/1878".

nei GadafFL They have chosen to 
fight terrorism by patient but 
dogged counter-measures both 
military and civil, and both in 
Ireland and in Spain have backed 
these up with political initiatives. 

It can be argued that though 
with regard to Libya Europeans 
may have dismissed the option of 
economic sanctions too readily 
and for the wrong reasons, much 
the same reasons have fed Presi- 
dent Reagan and Mrs Thatcher to 
refiise the option of sanctions 
against South Africa where they 
might persuade a reluctant gov- 
ernment to take the political 
action which alone can prevent 
the triumph of violence. 

The Lebanon, after years of 
Israeli attempts to counter terror- 
ism by punitive action, is no 
nearer peace, it is surely in the 
Middle East that the United States 
ought to make use ofits power and 
its unique position by building on 
the work so successfully started at 
Camp David. The reduction of 
Arab terrorism will only come 
about through the co-operation of 
the superpowers backed up by 
Europe in seeking and finding a 
solution w the problems of the

Israel. "

The reality is that at present we

the Legal Aid Fund in respect of

delays in payment amounting to

Heritage fire risk 

From the Chairman of the British 
Automatic Sprinkler Association 
Sir, For years past this association 
has made continuous representa- 
tion to the Department of the 
Environment and the Home Of- 
fice, warning of the danger to our 
heritage buildings. 

After the York Minster fire we 
posed the question "which build- 
ing will be next?" and suggested St 
Paul's Cathedral or the Houses of 
Parliament as likely candidates. 
We were wrong — it was Hampton 
Court Palace. Where we were right 
was in the knowledge that the 
standards of protection to both 
property and me were lamentable. 
Surely no one can contradict this 
now. 

We have also made representa- 
tion to the Cultural Committee of 
the European Parliament, who are 
discussing natural disasters and 
the cultural heritage, and in these 
discussions it has been found that 
Britain lies for behind in the 
protection of its heritage build- 
ings. Overseas countries protect 
theirs with automatic sprinkler 
systems which save both life and 
property. Until we take the same 
approach, further national trag- 
edies are inevitable.

APRIL 28 1937 

In the history of the Spanish Civil 
War the bombing of Guernica by 
the German Air Force — which 
saw it as a testing ground — nos 
seminal significance. Over 1,600 
people were killed and hundreds 
injured. Condemnatory world 
opinion prompted the Nationalists 
to claim that the bombs had been 
dropped by Republican aircraft 
and that the fires were the work of 
arsonists in the town. Our Special 
Correspondent was George 
Lowther Steer, one of the paper’s 
most distinguished war 
correspondents, who was killed on 
actiiv service at the age of 36. 


THE TRAGEDY OF 
GUERNICA 
TOWN DESTROYED 
IN AIR ATTACK 
From Our Special 
Correspondent 
BILBAO. April 27 

Guernica, the most ancient town 
of the Basques and the centre of 
their cultural tradition, was com- 
pletely destroyed yesterday after- 
noon by insurgent air raiders. The 
bombardment of this open town far 
behind the lines occupied precisely 
three hours and a quarter, during 
which a powerful fleet of aero- 
planes consisting of three German 
types. Junkers and Heinkel bomb- 
ers and Heinkel fighters, did not 
cease milMiiing on the town bombs 
weighing from 1,0001b. downwards 
and, it is calculated, more than 
3.000 two-pounder aluminium in- 
cendiary projectiles. The fighters, 
meanwhile, plunged low from 
above the centre of the town to 
machine-gun those of the civilian 
population who had taken refuge in 
the fields ... 

CHURCH BELL ALARM 

In the form of its execution and 
the scale of the destruction it 
wrought, no less than in the 
selection of its objective, the raid 
on Guernica was not a military 
objective. A factory producing war 
material lay outside the town and 
was untouched. So were two .bar- 
racks some distance from the town. 
The town lay far behind the lines. 
The object of tbe bombardment 
was seemingly the demoralization 
of tbe civil population and the 
destruction of the cradle of the 
Basque race. Every fact bears out 
thiB appreciation, beginning with 
the day -when the deed was done. 

Monday was the customary mar- 
ket day in Guernica for the country 
round. At 4.30p.m., when the 
market was full and peasants were 
still coming in, the church bell rang 
the alarm for approaching aero- 
planes . . .' ' 

Five minutes later a single 
German bomber appeared, circled 
over the town at a low altitude, and 
then .“dropped- six heavy bombs, 
apparently aiming for the station. 
The bombs with a . shower . of 
grenades fell on a former institute 
and on bouses and streets sur- 
rounding it. The aeroplane then 
went away. In another five minutes 
came a second bomber, which 
threw tbe same number of bombs 
into the middle of the town. About 
a quarter of an hour later three 
Junkers arrived to continue the 
work of demolition, and thencefor- 
ward the bombing grew in intensi- 
ty and was continuous, ceasing 
only with the approach of dusk at 
7.45. The whole town of 7,000 
inhabitants, phis 3,000 refugees, 
was slowly and systematically 
pounded t o piec es . . . 

RHYTHM OF DEATH 

It is impossible to state yet the 
number of victims. Jn the Bilbao 
Press this morning they were 
reported as “fortunately small." 
but it is feared that this was an 
understatement in order not to 
alarm the large refugee-population 
of Bilbao. In the hospital of 
Josefinas, "which- was- one of the 
first places bombed, all the 42 
wounded militiamen, it sheltered 
were killed outright In a street 
leading downhill from the Casa de 
Juntas I saw a place where 5b 
people, -nearly all women and 
children, are said to have bear 
trapped in an air raid refuge under 
a maas of burning wreckage. Many 
were killed in the fields, and 
altogether the deaths may run into 
hundreds ... 

_The rhythm of this bombing of 
an open town was, therefore, a 
logical one: first band grenades 
and heavy bombs to stampede the 
population, then machine -gu nnin g 
to drive them below, next heavy 
and incendiary bombs to wreck the 
houses and burn them on top of 
their victims. 

The only counter-measures the 
Basques could employ, for they do 
not possess sufficient aeroplanes to 
face the insurgent fleet, were those 
provided by the heroism. of the 
Basque clergy. These blessed and 
prayed for the kneeling crowds— 
Socialists, Anarchists, and Com- 
munists. as well as the declared 
faithful in the crumbling dugouls . . 


Busy old bees 

From The Chairman of the British 
Beekeepers ’ Association 
Sir, Dr Hal lam (April 23) drew 
attention to some important bene- 
fits of bee products of the populace 
of the eleventh century. It is 
surprising that she omitted to 
mention mead, which was made 
■from honey and was the only 
al cholic beverage widely available 
to the peasants. 

More surprising is Dr Hallam's 
interest in a comparison of the 
productivity of the average 
Domesday drone with his modem 
counterpart. The lazy yawning 
drone, as described by Shake- 
speare in Henn> F. produces 
neither wax nor honey. His single 
function in the bee colony is to 
mate with a young virgin queen, 
should the opportunity arise. 
Yours faithfully.

British Beekeepers’ Association.'

Woman bishop would be a centre of 
disunity, says bishop 


The Bishop of Chichester. Dr Eric 
Kemp, has endorsed the Bishop of 
London's warning that the Anglican 
Church may split over the issue of 
women's ordination. 

He says in his latest diocesan newslet- 
ter that “some form of separation would 
seem inevitable” if the American Epis- 
copalian Church persisted with its plan 
to consecrate a woman bishop. 

The Bishop of London, Dr Graham 
Leonard, was the only bishop of the 
Church of England to have spoken 
publicly about the danger, but “it would 
be a mistake to suppose (hat he is alone 
in his anxiety". -Dr Leonard speaks fora 
number of other bishops. Dr Kemp 
slates. 

His argument is that a bishop is a 
centre of unity in the church, white a 
woman bishop would be a centre of 
disunity. She would not be recognized 
by many other bishops, nor would any 
ordinations she might perform be 
regarded as valid by them. 

Leaders of the American church have 
already notified the rest of the Anglican 
Communion that they wish to appoint a 
woman to their ranks. This led the 
Bishop of London to declare that such a 
step would threaten Anglican unity. 

Meanwhile the Bishop of Southwark, 
the Right Rev Ronald Bowlby, has 
warned his diocesan synod that the 
Church of England faces a “hot 
summer” ahead, with the issue of 
women's ordination figuring in church 
controversy in several ways. He urged 
the church not to be frightened of 
conflict, which was nothing new in the 
church and which could be an occasion 
for growth. He has long been known as a 
leading supporter of female ordination. 

Many such supporters took part in a 
warm-hearted and enthusiastic celebra- 
tion of women's ministry in Canterbury 
Cathedral a week ago. attended by 
women priests from various parts of the 
Anglican Communion abroad. It was 
not a “campaigning” meeting, as the 


advocates of female ordination know 
that they cow hold the high ground in 
the argument, and that is their oppo- 
nents who are on the defensive. 

From the perspective of the. Move- 
ment for the Ordinatin of Women the 
onlv question left is “when?" . They may 
be reluctant to plunge the church into a 
ruinous schism, but there is an evident 
sense of growing frustration in their 
ranks. 

The Bishop of Southwark s contribu- 
tion could conceivably become the basis 
for a deeper examination of the ques- 
tion of conflict in church history, which 
may throw much needed light on the 
predicament which hangs over the 
Church of England. 

The idea he opposes, that Christianity 
must necessarily require the avoidance 
of conflict or of hurt to one’s opponents, 
is hardly born out it is a contemporary 
kind of Christian wetness. However, 
the hurt has usually done lasting 
damage. 

Those whose campaign for change in 
the church was successful were (hose 
who were sufficiently ruthless. Those 
who successfully resisted it were ruth- 
less too. And the hurts of the van- 
quished usually healed into a scar, 
whose permanent embodiment was a 
new Christian denomination, with its 
own myths, grievances, and creed 
(usually a statement of protest justify- 
ing the' recent breach). 

If those favouring the ordinating of 
women in the Church of England are to 
succeed, they have to be prepared, to 
drive the bishops of London, Chiches- 
ter. and others, into the cold. American 
Anglicans did. 

But this contradicts some of the 
values that the movement for women 
priests represents; for instance, that 
power games are male games, and what 
the church needs is a healthy dose of the 
feminine virtues of tolerance and 
tenderness. 

Christian feminism in the Church of 
England is heavily influenced by Jung- 


ian distinctions between masculine and 
feminine principles ioo much maleness 
in the church ministry is held to lead to 
too much “masculinity 1 ", and therefore 
needs a balancing injection of female 
ministry, so that male and female 
together make For wholeness. 

In .this construction, those males in 
the church who are resisting the 
ordination of women are hanging on to 
a distorted ministry: they are, Jungans 
would say. frightened of the feminine 
side in their own nature. And undoubt- 
edly there is a kind of "cam p" misogynv 
in certain circles in the Church of 
England, lending support to this foeoo- 

This self- imposes an inhibition on ine 
movement for women priests: it cannot 
act tough in the cause of tenderness. It 
also raises questions about the basic 
motivation behind iL for if this Jungian 
picture of human nature is untrue - and 
it is not exactly proved or provable - the 
ministry of the church needs defending 
from iL not aligning to it. 

The other lesson from the history of 
conflict in the church is that it often 
starts with the impact on religious belief 
of an alien idea. non-Christian in origin. 
The conflict process is the process of 
digestion and testing, to see whether the 
idea should be let in or thrown out. 

Often the church got it wrong at first, 
and only slowly realized its mistake. 
Sometimes the alien idea is gradually 
discovered to be a useful additional 
piece of knowledge, and doctrine is 
adjusted accordingly. Sometimes the 
church has been quite right to refect iL 

In this case, Jungian insights into 
human nature are that alien idea, 
pressing for acceptance. It is, however, 
not without its own logical and psycho- 
logical weaknesses. Most psychiatrists 
who are not paid-up Jungians seem to 
treat it as about half true. And as a 
matter of genera] observation, it is by; no 
means obvious that some psychological 
characteristics are genetically male or 
female. There is tautological flavour to 
the reasoning.

BESSIE LOVE 

The death of Bessie Love oaf ’ . She was by now approach- 
April 26, at the age of 87,. ing her mid-ihirties andwas 
severe another link with the 


earliest days of the silent 
screen in America. 

She was an established star 
by the end of the First World 
War and the forerunner of 
other fomous film stars such 
as Joan Crawford. Bene Davis 
and Katharine Hepburn, who 
continued io dominate their 
profession long . after their ' 
youth was past. . 

Bessie Love, whose real., 
name was Juanita Horton, 
was born' on September JO. 
1898. at Midland. Texas, and 
was educated in Los Angeles. 

The story was told that she 
began her film career the day 
after she left high school, and 


consrious of the need for a 
change. In J93S she emigrated 
to make her home in England 
and .to work in films and m 
radio. 

During the war years she 
became a co-manager and 
entertainer in the American 
Red Cross Hospital Unit and 
appeared m several English# 
films, including Lire Again 
and Atlantic Ferry. 

. When the war was over, 
Bessie Love entered into a 
long and productive period as 
an actress in the cinema, on 
the stage and in television. 

In 1947 she starred with 
Edward G. Robinson in Jour- 
ney Together for RK.0 Radio, 


although she only plaved a with James Stewart and Mar- 
minor part in D. W. Griffiths' tens Dietrich in A to Highway 


second major film. Intoler- 
ance, in 1916, tbaiofibe bride 
of Cana, that same year she 
played opposite Douglas Pair- 
banks and William £ Hart in 
the Triangle production. The 
Good Bad Man. 

Very small, very dainty and 
very feminine, she made an 
admirable partner for the 
dour, poker-faced Hart, who 
created a film tradition that 
Gary Cooper and John Wayne 
were to follow. 

In all her films with Hart 
she played the role of the 
viigjnal innocent, and be that 
of the outlaw whom she tried 
to reform, whilst Louise 
Glaum played that of the siren 
and temptress. 

Bessie Love went from 
strength to strength during the 
silent era, working for nearly 
all the major studios. 

She displayed a remarkable 
versatility. At times she bad 
adopted the Mary Pickford 
mage of the demure innocent, 
and at others the wistful 
appeal of Lillian Gish, but she 
could also play drama and 
tragedy, and was also some- 
times cast as a vamp. 

One of her fast silent films 
was Dress Parade, with Wil- 
liam Boyd, in 1927. but bv 
now her film career seemed to 
have lost its impetus. 

The change to talking films 
was in her case achieved 
without difficulty. She ap- 
peared in two of MGM’s fim , 


in the Sky for 20th Century 
Fox in 1951, with Robert 
Donat in the British-made 
Magic Box in 1952, and with 
Ava Gardner and Humphrey 
Bogart in The Barefoot 
Contessa for United Artists in 
1954. 

During these years she was 
also seen frequently on stage. 
In June of 1 945 she had taken 
over the part of Miss Dell in 
Love m Idleness at the Lyric 
Theatre, and . when the run 
ended she went on (our with ft 
on the continent in support of 
Lynn Fontanne and Alfred 
LunL 

A year later she made her 
first appearance on televirion. 
Her post-war stage plays in? 
eluded Bom Yesterday in 
1947, The Male Animal in 
1949, Death of a Salesman. 
also in 1949, and The Glass 
Meneagerie&i the Gaiety The- 
atre in Dublin in 1951. 

Meanwhile she was seen on 
television in plays such as You 
Can’t Take It With You and 
Our Town. Her later television 
performances included foe sK 
ries Edward and Mrs Simp* 
son. . 

■ She. was married once, tti 
film director Bill Hawks. Tte 
marriage lasted five years aaST 
ended in 1955. Bessie Low 
continued to work until' she 
was 84, when .deteriorating 
health forced her into 
retirement. j 

Hers was an exceptionally. 


and most famous musicals, " an ^ remarkable career. It 

Hollywood Rente of 1929 and ' WBS enough foe .ait 

the never-to-be-forgotten ' ^P^neinced stage star to turn

It was in Broadway Melody 
that Love really recovered her 
former position and again 
revealed her versatility by 
playing a tough song-and- 
tiancK girl in a Broadway - 
musical One of the first rvi ■

Shakespeare 


Paul Griffiths discovers Busoni’s unfinished opera living in its destined limbo 

Brave approach to faceless music 


Doctor Faust 
Coliseum 

The mystery play that brought 
Busoni's work as a composer to its 
unfinished culmination has been in 
limbo a long time, waiting more than 
60 years for its first British produc- 
tion. What we learn at the Coliseum, 
though, is that Umbo is its destined 
{dace. The s tran geness of much of the 
opera is that of music without a face: 
partly by allowing his orchestra to 
fulfill its own dreams of baroque 
counterpoint independently of toe 
action, and partly by disclaiming any 
intention to force an original style 
-upon hb audience, Busom produces 
an opera which is curiously aloof 
from itself 

If . one were inclined to lake a 
negative view, one. might describe the 
effect as colourless. However, the 
English National Opera production, 
very busily engineered by David 
Pountney and blessed with a power- 
ful, beautiful, vindicating orchestral 
performance under Mark Elder, en- 
courages one to enter the work on its 
own terms, and to see its lack of 
distinct personality as central to the 
issue. Instead of using style to build 
fences around his field of operations, 
.Busoni keeps hb options open and 
works on a wide wasteland with views 
back to Bach and across to Debussy 
and Schoenberg. This b hb world 
without values. It b also toe spiritual 
.world of hb Faust, whose principal 
tragedy b to be unimpressed by 
himself 

From that proceeds the secondary 
tragedy that b toe tragedy of ail 
Faustsrto give reality to the source of 
undared appetites and call it Mephis- 
topheles. Mr Pountney's treatment of 
the splitting personality b simple and 
marvellously effective: Faust creates 
Mephistopheles, first mouthing his 
words, then producing from hb body 
that of hb double, costumed as he is. 
But the virtue of adding to splitting 
personalities splitting atoms b more 
doubtful Faust b presented to us as 
the father of the hydrogen bomb (I 
presume he b intended to resemble 
Edward Teller, on whom there is a 
piece in the programme), which raises 
both general and specific comp- 
lications. 

There b toe matter of dress. The 
period is that of the opera's first 
production, and it does look a little 
odd when a grey-suited gent suddenly 
dons magician's outfit, sets off fire- 
works and summons five purple 
heads. Even if Eikne Hannan as the 
Duchess of Parma looks ravishing in

Thomas Allen's thoughtful and sensitive Faust confronting Stefanos Lazaridis's skyline of filing cabinets 


her beaded black gown, to root the 
action in any precise era, but most 
particularly in a recent one, causes 
too many problems. 

It also leads to the least admirable 
aspects of this production: the visions 
of Edwardian childhood (though 
perhaps they must be accepted as Mr 
Pountney’s trademark) and the ex- 
pressionist grotesquerie. It may be 
useful to be reminded that Kurt Weill 
was one of Busoni's pupils, but toe 
music is not such as to sustain the 
scuttling zombies and nightmare 
cityscapes out of contemporary cine- 
ma, or the pulled faces that draw 
attention to how innocent a burlesque 
Busoni's Cortoge is. 

Nor. can the score, which is 
concerned with toe “Jessness" quali- 
ties of disenchantment, disaffection 
and alienation, quite carry the story 
of the bomb: the Sarabande is a 
wonderful piece, but the effect is 
thoroughly confused when it b made 
to accompany a scene of Mephistoph- 


eles leading Faust to create a warhead 
by origami There b a deep problem 
too at the end, where a naked boy, 
Faust's dying re-creation of himself 
goes off playing with the blood-red 
hydrogen atom that had been 
Mephistopheles's first gift. Quite 
what this signifies is unclear (on the 
other hand, Faust's dead reclaiming 
of his alter ego is well judged), but 
Busoni's intentions too at this point 
are unclear. 

The ENO production uses Antony 
Beaumont's realization of the ending, 
which closes toe work in a curiously 
contented C major. Perhaps that b 
right. Busoni seems from hb writings 
to have suffered from a clear hope of 
the future's promise: the new Faust to 
whom his protagonist gives birth b 
perhaps another of hb Berlin asso- 
ciates , Edgard Vartse, and one might 
give the opera its truest conclusion by 
ending with a sample of the musical 
futurism Varese was creating in New 
York while Busoni was at work on 
Doktor Faust. 


For all its problems, though, this is 
an appropriately intelligent and dar- 
ing production of a profoundly 
unsettling work, and no doubt many 
of its wonders will appear less 
mechanical when everyone is more 
used to dealing with the skylines of 
filing cabinets and the huge magic 
triangle that dominate Stefanos 
Lazaridis's set Already Thomas Al- 
len gives evidence of a deeply 
thoughtful, always sensitively 
phrased portrait of Faust: there are 
moments where toe balance needs 
sorting out, but the great monologues 
and the discourses with Graham 
Dark's quirky, nimble Mephistoph- 
eles found a wealth of colour and 
meaning within a reenacted greyness. 
Among the rest, John Connell b a 
solid Wagner, Henry Newman a 
Brother who really means his prom- 
ises of vengeance (in a scene that 
pointedly contrasts with the rest in its 
moral certainty) and Arthur Davies a 
suitably effete Duke of Parma. Go 
and be bewildered. 


- Theatre: Holly Hill on the New York scene 

Bob Fosse misses his target 






• v j&t ; . ^ - 


Last spring a lively,, pleasant 
show called Big River opened 
just in time to save Broadway 
musical theatre’s face. . No 
such luck this year. Bob 
Fosse's Big Deal (Broadway 
Theatre) is anything but. Writ- 
ten. directed and choreo- 
graphed by Mr Fosse, based 
>on the Italian film Big Deal on 
Madonna Street , tins musical 
was supposed to do for Fosse's 
c ar eer wha t La Cageaux folles 
did for Jerry Herman's — after 


m 


smash hit, and incidentally 
give hope that the mostly 
home-grown musical still 
sparkles. - 

There b some exciting 
dancing in toe show, with such 
Fosse signatures as white- 
gloved hinds bolding hats on 
beads, angular athletic gyra- 
tions, sinuous slithering, and 
syncopated movements com- 
municating toe sheer exuber- 
ance of sweeping through 
space. A chorus of chained 
criminals soft-shoes to “Ain’t 
We Got Fun” with the orches- 
tra contributing mocking 
chain sounds, a night-dub 
crowd, breaks into an almost 
show-stopping .romp and a 
trio snakes through “Me and 
My Shadow". . _ 

No number has the unfor- 
gettable panache of toe open- 
ing to Pippin, however, and 
Big Deaf b just as vacuous 
without the redeeming cos- 


metics that Mr Fosse in vented 
to make the earlier musical 
successful. 

The director beating toe 
house this season is the British 
transplant John Tilfinger. 
First to win accolades was hb 
Off-Broadway production of 
Terrence McNally's Its Only 
a Play this winter. Hb staging 
of Corpse* puttering along on 
Broadway, hb solemnly hilari- 
ous revival of Loot has just 
moved from toe Manhattan 


Music Box and his staging of 
A.R. Gurney’s new play The 
Perfect Party (Playwrights 
Horizons) has just opened 
Off-Broadway. 

I have never understood 
why some critics rush to 
congratulate a fine comic writ- 
er when he supposedly shows 
■ signs of getting “serious”, as if 
a gift for making people laugh 
were not rare enough. Comic 
writers are as prone to dol- 
drums and mean spirits as 
anyone; writing them out b 
not necessarily evidence of 
artistic growth. Neil Simon, 
had a battle with mean spirits 
in mid-career, and now it 
appears to be AJL Gurney’s 
turn. 

The Perfect Party features a 
fiftybh professor trying to give 
a perfect party to a (mostly 
offstage) cultural cross-section 
of guests. He invites the social 
critic from “New York’s ma- 


jor newspaper”, and in hb 
anxiety to get a good review 
assumes a dual identity and 
nearly ruins hb marriage. The 
play has been received as a 
thoughtful satire on the 
playwright's relationship to 
his colleagues, audiences and 
critics, as well as on America’s 
policies. It could be both, but 1 
am not joining the hurrahs 
because, in spite of some slick 
lines and a hearty production, 
1 found it on the wrong side of 


Academic in its framework 
- Brechnan titles for each 
scene and pretty self-defeating 
'ones like “Always like Your 
Characters” and “I^t Your 
Imagination Go” — is a never- 
theless arresting and perplex- 
ing drama, Prindpia Script- 
orise, given urgent direction 
by Lynne Meadow at the 
Manhattan Theatre Cub. 
Richard Nelson spans 15 years 
in toe lives of two men who 
meet as youthful hot-heads 
imprisoned by a right-wing 
government and again when 
toe Latin American has be- 
come a flunkey and the Amer- 
ican a pawn of the revo- 
lutionary left-wing regime. 
Right and left are bad news, 
and the play’s strongest scenes 
show Uie power-plays of poli- 
ticians and writers on the 
make for both themselves and 
their ideologies. 

The story feels unfinished

of constant repartee (from her) 
and toe slower puzzled re- 
sponses (from him) of some- 
one who cannot fathom out if 
there b any depth to her at all. 

Yet Cheryl Maiker and 
Adam Kotz have so whole- 
heartedly immersed them- 
selves into the characters Jim 
Hitchmough has written, and 
there b so much truth in their 
playing, such gusto, that what 
they give us b something of 
toe heady essence of being 
alive. 

When Malcolm offers to 
take her birdwatching she 
cannot believe he means what 
he says, and stares around 
with unconcealed distaste at

mud, a shop assistant with a 
mother to cook hb puddings. 
Brenda b brisk, observant, 
sexy and marvellously sup- 
plied with, funny lines. 

It b a measure of the charm 
and skill of the two players, 
the understanding direction of 
Tony Mulholland and Mr 
Hitch mough’s true and comic 
vision that a partnership that 
seemed improbable at first 
becomes as fitting as anything 
between the guillemots.

But. when that problem is 
Andres Segovia became the pul s ide by side with the 
seventy-first recipient of the difficulties posed by a right 
Gold Medal of the Royal ^d that plucks without pro- 
Philharmonic Society on Sat- during very much singing 
unlay when Sir Thomas Arm- power and a left hand that can 


strong presented him with the 
coveted award after the first 
half of this recital. The grand 
old man made a thank-you 
speech in which it was clear 
that he thought the honour 
had something to do with the 
Royal Philharmonic Orches- 
tra. One can understand his 
confusion — the mistake is 
made by many another — and 
one can also comprehend that 
bis playing is nowadays but a 
pale reflection of his past 
achievements. 

This was an occasion, then, 
to honour him rather than to 


no longer hit a fingerboard 
with the necessary firmness, 
then one must be honest and 
say that he is a virtuoso of the 
past. 

Yeu even if we are now 
denied his performing abilities 
at their best, he has also left a 
rich legacy of music, both his 
own transcriptions and a large 
number of pieces written spe- 
cifically for him. Here there 
were examples of the latter in 
two from the set of Studies by 
Villa-Lobos which form a 
cornerstone of the guitar's 


to honour him rather than to repertoire, > n a Suite hy More- 
marvel. And here the act of no Torroba, in a Sonatina by 


homage was inevitably also an 
act of tolerance. For example 
Segovia now has a tendency to 


Ponce, and in three pieces by 
Alexandre Tansman. Perhaps

Metanoia 
Purcell Room 

Metanoia have not been 
around for very long, but they 
already seem to have hit on 
that elusive but most essentia] 
requirement for a contempo- 
rary performing group: an 
individual profile. The unusu- 
al combination of instruments 
- trumpet, clarinet, cello, 
piano and percussion - cer- 
tainly helps, but there is also 
the more exacting business of 
presenting characterful pro- 
grammes and projecting them 
with conviction. This concert 
came out excellently on both 
counts. 

I am sure that Jonathan 
Impell did not intend to 
dominate proceedings, but it 
turned out like that His 
performing skills were impres- 
sively displayed in Berio's 
Sequent X for solo trumpet, 
where he darted between the 
various musical elements in a 
manner exactly suited to the 
composer's speed of thought. 
The piece calls for a wide 
range of techniques, with an 
emphasis on extremely loud 
overblown notes (murderous 
to play, surely) directed into 
an open piano and setting up a 


sequence of resonances which 
were nicely enhanced here by 
Javier Alvarez's sound-projec- 
tion. As so often with Beno, 
the musical substance itself 
may be slender, but there is no 
mistaking the brilliance of the 
total effect. 

But Jmpett's composing is 
as arresting as his playing - 
there are plenty of strongly 
promoted individuals in the 
contemporary scene who sim- 
ply could not approach the 
trenchant verve and vividness 
of thought in evidence in his 
Cassation, here receiving its 
first performance. The five 
players obviously relished it. 
and seemed just as happily on 
terms with the benign dotti- 
ness of Cage’s Concerto for 
piano and orchestra and Fon- 
tana Mix, both works here 
played simultaneously (and 
why not indeed?). 

Michael Levinas's Concerto 
pour un piano espace no 2 and 
Les Rires du GiUes seemed 
pretentious and inchoate in 
such company, but Michael 
Blake’s Self-Delectative Songs 
(another first performance) 
fell gently and pleasingly on 
the ear. Stockhausen’s Tier- 
kreis made an unexpectedly 
ingenuous upbeat

Coliseum plans 


Jonathan Miller tackles Gil- 
bert and Sullivan, and indeed 
operetta, for the first time 
when he stages The Mikado 
for toe English National 0pera 
next September. The cast in- 
cludes Richard van Allan, 
Lesley Garrett and Bonaven- 
tura Bo none. The new pro- 
duction, the season's first is 
shared with toe Houston 
Grand Opera. 

Two rare Russian operas 
join toe repertoire in 1987. 
Datgomiehsky's The Stone 
Guest has recently been heard 
in Paris, but the Coliseum 
performances (first night, 
April 23) are reckoned to be 
the first to be staged in Britain. 
Keith Warner, whose produc- 
tion of Moses drew a mixed 
reaction recently, is the direc- 
tor. A month later the ENO 
directors of music and produc- 
tion, Mark Elder and David 
Pountney,' work together on 
Shostakovich's Lady Mac- 
beth of Mtsensk , staged by 
Covent Garden some 20 years 
ago in the composer's revised 
version. Katerina Ismailova. 

Earlier in the season Elder 
and Pountney combine on 
Carmen in a new translation 
by Anthony Burgess. The 
leading roles are double-cast, 
with Sally Burgess and Jean 
Rigby sharing the gypsy. First 
night will be on November 27. 
Mark Elder will also conduct 
the new production of Simon 
Boccanegra. 

This time he will be working 
with David Alden and David 
Fielding, whose view of 
Mazeppa was almost as con- 
troversial as Warner's of Mo- 
ses. The Coliseum is clearly 
not going to be deterred by 
adverse public reaction in 
some quarters and appears to 
be equally determined to give 
its young producers and de- 
signers an extended trial. 

The casualty of the season is 
Prokofiev's The Fiery Angel, 
which was to have been 
directed by Andre Serban in a 
co-production with the Gene- 


va Opera. It would have 
rounded off the ENO's collec- 
tion of Russian rarities, but 
proved too expensive and has 
been postponed. The ENO 
still has a deficit of £500,000 
and both Cav and Pag and 
Carmen are being staged on 
budgets that are considerably 
less than originally intended. 

There have been sugges- 
tions that both Covent Gar- 
den and the Royal Shake- 
speare Company benefited 
from toe close administrative 
and financial scrutiny which 
preceded the Priestley Report. 
A team of management con- 
sultants will be arriving at the 
Coliseum in due course.

Prison officers 
to meet Hurd 
over dispute 

■ By Peter Evans, Home Affairs Correspondent 
The Prison Officers’ Assod- maud Centre, one of the 


ation is having talks with Mr 
Douglas Hurd, the Home Sec- 
retary, today in an attempt to 
defuse the Jail crisis. 

- The association is not ruling 
out the possibility of further 
industrial _ action, however. 
That remains in case a mem- 
ber is “isolated and 
intimidated", in the 
association's view, by the 
actions of a governor seeking 
budgetary cuts. 

’ Yesterday’s decision not to 
impose further industrial ac- 
tion “at this time" is, accord- 
ing to a statement from the 
association, “a clear indica- 
tion of our good faith." 

Assodationofficials are still 
upset about a dispute at 
Gloucester jail last week 
which marred good pro g res s 
.in talks at the prison depart- 
ment on manning 

Each side sought yesterday 
to give the impression that it 
was not backing down. 

The moves follow an ex- 
change of blows after the 
association decided that offi- 
cers in IS jails should not 
admit new prisoners, escorted 
by police, between 230pm on 
-Friday and noon on Saturday.

A much lower rate for the 
dollar was needed to bi 
about some sort ofeqratibrC 
am, to reduce the hqgebflater- 
- al deficit between the US and . 
Japan, and American depen- 
dence oo Japanese capital. 

With the trade deficit prov- 
ing to be one of the biggest 
single drags on US economic 
growth, an aJJkmt attack on 
the exchange rate v 
required. 

The threads holding the 180 
yen rate together snapped last 
week. There was a miscalcula- 
tion of the acceptable speed of 
descent of the dollar and the 
result was to throw the bond 
markets into eoafushm and 
fear. 

Between April 11 and last 
Wednesday the June yen fu- 
tures rose from 5635 (1773) 
to 5930 (168.1). 

The bond markets reacted 
violently. The cash long bond 
had been %12S 1 'M last Mon- 
day. By Friday it was strug- 
gling to bold $120. 

By then, however, the worst 
appeared to be over. What the 
markets needed was a period 
of calm in the foreign ex- 
change markets and this was 
what they seemed to . be 
getting. 

The Japanese were not ex- 
pected back m the securities 
markets In force until after 
holidays in Japan: ending on 
May 5. 

Once an equOibrinm level b 
achieved, the absence of pan- 
icky pressure from the foreign 
exchange side will permit a 
resumption ri the secular 
downtrend in US interest rates 
which is demanded and pro- 
duced by die weakness of the 
American economy and by the 
price deflation which has tak- 
en over. 

Consumer prices feD at an 
annual rate of 13 per cent in 
the first quarter, bumping up 
the notional teal rate of inter- 
est from about 4% per cent in 
tbe fourth qnarter to a gargan- 
tuan 9 per cent . in tie first 
quarter. 

Above all, tbe financial 
markets require a slow and 
steady devaluation. The finan- 
cial markets panic at what 
looks like a “free fair in the 
dollar. 

Between September 21 and 
April 11, the yen rose from 
41.8 cents (June contract) to 
5635 cents, a rise of 35 per 
cent. Over the same-period, 
the June T-bond contract rose 
from $72 to $103 — an increase 
of 43 per cent So there is no 
essential incompatibility be- 
tween a devaluing dollar and a 
bond boom.

The fell in the price of oil 
has plunged the coal industry 
into a . new crisis that will 
demand hard decisions about 
the Government's energy poli- 
cy, a new study concludes. 

In a paper published today. 
Dr Biu Rbbinson of - the 
London Business School says 
the question is notwbeiher tbe 
coal price will, fall, but bow 
soon and by bow much. 

. “This effectively removes 
any hope of bringing the 
industry to the point where 
the current workforce all have 
secure jobs in profitable pits,” 
he says. 

The study comes at a mo- 
ment when the Central Elec- 
tricity Generating Board and 
-the National Coal Board are 
still locked in negotiations 
over the bulk supply price. An 
agreement may be reached 
this week. 

Mr Peter Walker, the Ener- 
gy Secretary, takes the formal 
position that the outcome is 
up to the two state industries.

significantly below the present 
general price of £45 per tonne, 
it would pay the CEGB to 
switch to its oil-fired stations. 
This would apply at any price 
above £35 per tonne, accord- 
ing to the London Business 
School, and coal prices would 
need to fall below £30 per 
tonne to regain the usual 
historic relationship to oil 
prices. ■ 

Maintaining coal prices 
would sharply reduce help to 
British industry from lower 


energy costs and distort com- 
petition between fuels. 

Prices below £38 per tonne 
would, however, prevent the 
NCB from achieving the Gov- 
ernment-imposed target tha t 
it should break even in its 
1987-87 financial year. 

If the Board attempted to 
keep prices competitive and 
meet hs target, it would be 
forced into a new round of pit 
closures, possibly costing a 
further 30,000 jobs. 

Because the closure of hope- 


lessly uneconomic pits has left 
many operating on the margin 
of profitability. Dr Robinson 
calculates that “at £35, the 
required closures match those 
which provoked the 1984-85 
strike." 

Dr Robinson urges the Gov- 
ernment to give industry the 
benefit of lower energy prices 
but to subsidize the marginal 
pits in the short term because 
low oil prices are unlikely to 
last indefinitely. 


‘Rise in 
growth 

r9 


By Our Economics Editor 

■ Lower oil prices, easier 
monetary conditions and con- 
vergence in budgetary policies 
are expected to cause some 
pick-up in world expansion, 
according to the new World 
Economic Outlook published 
by the International Monetary 
Fund today. - 

The IMF expects output to 
grow by 3 per cent in industri- 
al countries this year, margin- 
ally faster than in 1985, a year 
it considered “somewhat 
disappointing", accelerating 
mildly to 3.2 per cent growth 
in 1987. Growth in the world 
as a whole is expected to grow 
very slightly faster. 

Although the recent fall in 
oil prices provides an initial 
stimulus to industrial coun- 
tries which the EMF calculates 
to be worth newly 1 pep cent 
of gross domestic product, its 
new output forecast is- only 
marginally more optimistic 
than the predictions published 
last autumn. 

Oil prices have a more 
dramatic impact on the infla- 
tion figures, reducing tbe aver- 
age for industrial countries to 
3.4 per cent this year and 3 per 
cent in 1987 — the lowest 
tevei, the IMF points out, in 
over two decades ■ 

However, the Outlook gives 
a warning that the continua- 
tion of world economic 
growth at only a “moderate 
pace" means that relatively 
little progress will be made in 
reducing the serious unem- 
ployment problem faced by 
many countries. 

The IMF is forecasting 
growth of 18 per cent in the 
United Kingdom this year. 


Woolworth hits 
back at Dixons 


By Lawrence Lever. 

Weekend reports of the executive, 
contents of Dixons formal 
offer- document, drew a furi- 
ous response from Mr Geoff 
Mulcahy, Woolworth 's chief 
executive yesterday. The re- 
ports of the documemt, which 
is expected today indicated 
that Woolworth would be 
strongly criticized for alleged- 
ly disposing of prime retail 
locations to some of its high 
street rivals, and generally for 
abandoning prime high street 
sites 

The reports drew a fresh 
attack from Mr Geoff 
Mulcahy, Woofworth’s chief 


yesterday, on 
Dixons lack of out-of-town 
retail sites. 

He said: “While Mr Kalms 
claims to understand retailing 
he has totally missed the out- 
of-town opportunity despite 
the fact that it is the most 
significant retail trend of the 
last decade. * 

SG Warburg, advisers to 
Dixons said: “these comments 
seem strange coming from a 
group which has just sold 
Woolco, which has 750,000 
square ft of out-of- town 
space.” 


McKechnie dismisses 
Evered bid as pathetic 


The £157 million bid for 
McKechnie Brothers, toe 
Midlands engineering group, 
by Eyered Holdings was yes- 
terday described by Dr Jim 
Butler, McKechnie's chair- 
man, as “pafaeticr 
“There is no industrial logic 
in this bid,” Dr Butler said, 
pointing out that tbe value of 
fevered's share offer — which 
consists of a straight share 


swap of four of its own shares 
.for_ every .five . McKechnie 
shares - stood at “a paltry 9 
per cent premium over our 
pre-bid share price." 

• Mr Ray Mitcben.Group Di- 
rector, Finance of BBA Group 
said yesterday that weekend 
reports that BBA was consid- 
ering a bid for TI Group, came 
as a complete surprise to him. 


Morgan decision soon 


Plans for Morgan Grenfell, the 
merchant bank, to expand its 
capital base are due to be 
announced within the next 
few weeks, the bank said 
yesterday. 

At the same time it dis- 
missed weekend reports that it 
had already decided to raise 
£100 million via a public 
flotation as “ highly 
speculative." 


The new money is needed to 
finance Morgan's plans for 
gilt-edged and equity market- 
making operations following 
the Stock Exchange big bang 
on October 27. 

When Morgan Grenfell an- 
nounced its results for 1985 
last month, it indicated that a 
rights issue from existing 
shareholders was toe preferred 
method. 


Oil prices 
‘could go 
below $10’ 

By Our Fmanrial Editor 

Crude oil prices could fall 
below $10 per barrel in the 
short term unless members of 
the Organization of Petroleum 
Exporting Countries cut out- 
put surplus to present de- 
mand, according to a report 
from the United States De- 
partment of Energy, published 
yesterday. 

The report gives a warning, 
however, that, cheap oil is 
unlikely to last much beyond 
the end of this year and that 
prices will gradually move 
back up to between $25 and 
$32 per barrel by the mid- 
1990s. 

There is little to stop further 
price falls while significant 
excess production continues, 
because the short-term mar- 
ginal costs of most producers 
are no higher than $5 to $9 per 
barrel. " 

Dr Subroto, the Indonesian 
oil minister, predicted that 
Opec’s decision to reduce 
output by 1 million barrels per 
day to 16.3 million in the third 
quarter of the year would raise 
prices to between $18 and $23 
per barrel. 

The report concludes that 
the new lower prices will cut 
the US inflation rate by 2 per 
cent, boost the growth rate by 
1.8 per cent and create 1.1 
million extra jobs by 1990.

A dispute between the Unit-

to the US is expected to be 
raised by Mr Paul Channon, 
Secretary of State for Trade 
and Industry, when he visits 
Washington this week. 

Spain is stepping up its 
duties on com products, 
among them American Bour- 
bon whiskey. Because Spain is 
a member of the EEC the US 
has said it will retaliate against 
similar EEC products. 

The Scotch Whisky Associ- 
ation has described the threat 
as illogical and suggested that 
the matter should be resolved 
before July .1 when proposed 
tariff increases on Scotch are

CBI to fight US liability ruling 


Tbe Confederation of Brit- 
ish Industry is to challenge a 
ruling in the Californian 
courts which broadens the 
scope of product liability in 
the United States. It fears the 
ruling could have serious re- 
percussions for British 
manufacturers. 

Tbe employers' organiza- 
tion. is backing moves by the 
American Chamber of Com- 
merce in London to overturn 
the ruling in the US Supreme 
Court. 

A bearing is expected to 
take place before the end of 
the year and the CBI hopes it 
will become a test case for 
some of the more general 
claims of jurisdiction over 
foreign companies that the US 
authorities have been making. 

The Califoroian rating in- 
volved a claim against a 
Taiwanese company whose 
allegedly defective tyres 
caused a motorcycle accident 

The Taiwanese company, 
having settled out of court for 
substantial da mages , then 
made a claim against a Japa- 


By Jeremy Warner, Business Correspondent 
nese manufacturer which had supplied the final equipment 


supplied the valves in the tyre. 
Although the Japanese com- 
pany had no business dealings 
of its own with the US. the 
Californian courts held that it 
was answerable under stale 
law for the counter claim. 

Sir Terence Beckett, direc- 
tor genera! of the CBI, de- 
scribed the niling as a 
threatening extension of al- 
ready excessive claims by the 
US authorities of jurisdiction 
over foreign companies. 

“If the decision is left 
standing, it could have alarm- 
ing, consequences for British 
and other non-US firms.” be 
said. 

“Component manufactur- 
ers that have no business 
dealings whatsoever in the US 
would be vulnerable to prod- 
uct liability and other claims 
in the American courts if their 
products were incorporated in 
goods sold into the States. 

“Component manufactur- 
ers might not even be aware of 
the rules to which they were 
subject where their customers 


to a wide spread of markets. 

“ This represents a quite 
unacceptable assertion of ju- 
risdiction of US courts and 
comes at a time when escalat- 
ing product liability costs are 
already malting life difficult 
for British manufacters with 
established business links with 
the US." 

The CBI last week filed a 
brief with the US Supreme 
Court making clear its view of 
the Californian ruling and the 
impart it believes it could 
have on international trade. 

The cost of product liability 
insurance for exporters to the 
United States has already 
escalated to almost prohibi- 
tive levels and the CBI be- 
lieves it will be virtually 
impossible to secure cover 
against counter claims of the 
troe the Taiwanese tyre man- 
ufacturer made against the 
Japanese company. 

Mr Paul Channon, the 
Trade and Industry Secretary, 
is expected to raise the ruling 
in talks with officials during 


his visit to the US this week. 

Mr Channon is expected to 
tell US officials that attempts 
to extend US laws to cover 
foreign companies are unac- 
ceptable and carry the risk of 
retaliatory action by the EEC 

Mr Mel Stephens, the US 
attorney bringing the action 
on behalf of the American 
Chamber of Commerce and 
toe CBI. said he thought there 
was a good chance of the US 
Supreme Court overturning 
toe Californian ruling. 

He said that the Supreme 
Court hearing could have wide 
ranging implications for other 
areas where toe US authorities 
had claimed jurisdiction over 
foreign companies. 

There was a risk that toe 
Supreme Court would avoid 
the issue by narrowing the 
scope of toe bearing to toe 
specific case in dispute. 

But he also pointed out that 
toe Supreme Court was not 
obliged to hear cases of this 
sort and therefore felt the 
omens were good for turning it 
into a test case. 


Executive Editor Kenneth Fleet 


Seers do better the 
farther they gaze 


Economic forecasting is an infant 
science. Its critics would say it was 
rather like the child in the Saki story, 
who as he got older never knew better 
— he simply knew more. They should 
take note of the assessment just 
carried out by the man with the 
toughest job in the business, the 
Treasury's Chief Economic Adviser, 
or keeper of the Whitehall crystal 
bail. 

Given the amount of guesswork 
involved, perhaps the most curious 
fact about official forecasting is that it 
manages to get so close to the 
outcome for output and inflation; 
and most outside forecasters, how- 
ever critical of the details, would 
acknowledge this. 

But a most intriguing finding, 
presented by Sir Terence Bums in a 
recent lecture at the Royal Society, 
shortly to be published, is that the 
real strides have been made in 
forecasting output and inflation as 
much as two years ahead. There has 
not been nearly such improvement in 
the business of forecasting the im- 
mediate future. 

That, of course, is not the same 
thing as saying that longer-term 
forecasts are now more reliable than 
one-year forecasts. If forecasters were 
now equally good at both tasks, one 
would still naturally expect errors to 
increase as they peered further into 
the mists of the future. But in the 
same lecture. Sir Terence makes the 
remarkable point that while ibis 
remains true for inflation forecasts, it 
is no longer true for output. 

Man and machine 

If you “annualize” the errors 
(which very crudely means multiply- 
ing by four the error in a forecast 
looking only three months ahead, 
while dividing by two the error in 
forecasts looking 24 months ahead) 
for prices they nse just as one would 
expect, the further ahead the fore- 
caster looks. But the annualized 
errors actually fall, quite dramati- 
cally, with the length of the forecasts 
for gross domestic product Here, it 
seems, long sight has not only 
improved over the past 15 years or 
so; it is nowadays actually rather 
better than short sight 

Sir Terence Burns's crystal ball is a 
compound of man and machine; a 
mathematical model now running to 
something like 1.000 equations, 
which has — on the one hand — to be 
fed through a computer, and — on the 
other — to have his results massaged 
by his econometricians. 

The acid — indeed the only — test of 
economic forecasting is if it is proved 
correct But what happens if policy 
changes, or there are unforeseeable 
international crises? Is it better to be 
shown to be intelligently wrong or 
right purely by chance? Sir Terence 
refuses to be diverted; actual results 
are the only proper test partly 
because it is so tricky to try to recreate 
the world of might-have-been, partly 
because a necessary development in 
forecasting is to build in likely policy 
responses to changing circumstances. 
This is certainly true for an official 
forecaster. 

Even so, there have clearly been 
periods when forecasting was com- 
plicated by dramatic changes, and so 
was objectively more difficult So the 
Treasury economist has constructed 


an “index of variation” — a measure 
of how growth and inflation have 
oscillated from one year to another. If 
GDP increases steadily at 2 per cent a 
year while inflation runs at a persis- 
tent 4 per cent theft the index of 
variation of both is z’ero. 

This is useful, because it enables 
one to test official forecasting against 
the simple no-change method: fore- 
casts that merely assume year two is a 
repetition of year one. If the 
forecasters’ errors are greater than the 
index of variation, clearly the whole 
machinery of model-based forecast- 
ing is a waste of lime. 

Fortunately for Sir Terence and his 
crew, their forecast errors do turn out 
to be a lot smaller than the index of 
variation. For forecasts of output 
looking one year ahead errors have 
recently been a good deal lower, in 
relation to the index of variation, 
than they were in the late 1 970s. But 
the record is not that much better, 
either for output or prices, than it was 
at the beginning of the 1 970s. 

The unknown ‘now’ 

It is in forecasting up to two years 
ahead that there has been the 
dramatic improvement on both 
scores; and for output, the improve- 
ment has been such as to create this 
strange ability to describe the farther 
future better than tomorrow. 

A possible explanation is that 
disturbances to output tend to work 
their way out in the wash. This, of 
course, appeals to the prevailing 
Treasury view that the economy 
contains built-in output stabilizers, 
while there is no inherent tendency 
for inflation to stabilize. But this view 
may equally have led to the Treasury 
putting more effort into forecasting 
farther ahead, which might be the 
simplest explanation for the 
improvement in the results. 

Whatever the merits of that argu- 
ment. it is certainly true that events 
such as strikes or changes in interest 
rates may have dramatic but short- 
lived effects difficult to forecast It is 
also plain that forecasting tomorrow 
is made peculiarly difficult by the fact 
that unlike the weatherman, the 
economist does not even know what 
is happening today; vital information 
is slow to materialize, and often 
heavily revised. 

Policy lessons 

Sir Terence does not expect any 
dramatic improvements in short- 
term forecasts: but he does believe 
errors in official forecasts looking as 
much as four years ahead may 
continue to fall. 

What, meanwhile, are the lessons 
for policy? The first, as he acknowl- 
edges. is the need to look at all 
possible information in the dicey but 
necessary job of forecasting the near 
future. The Treasury now apparently 
monitors about 30 outside forecasts 
on a regular basis. But the second — 
which is particularly relevant to the 
present moment — is the need to view 
short-term forecasts of growth with 
exceptional caution when the econ- 
omy is sustaining some large shock. 
Economies have a tendency to be- 
have perversely in their initial re- 
sponse. Ministers may be wise not to 
invest too much confidence in the 
very short-term.

FINANCE AND INDUSTRY 


THE TIMES MONDAY APRIL 28 1986 


* 


( GILT -EDGED - ") 

Foreign investors may 
plump for mediums 


Mr Nigd Lawson would 
probably vehemently deny it, 
but most commentators agree 
that attempted depredations 
of sterling have been a feature 
of British policy on several 
occasions over die past four 
or five years. 

Typically such attempts 
have ended in tears, with the 
fall in sterling eventually 
threatening to get out of 
hand, forcing a defensive rise 
in base rates.* Indeed some- 
times short-term interest 
rates have bad to rise back 
above their original levels, 
before confidence in the cur- 
rency has been restored. 

Most United Kingdom ob- 
servers have thus been watch- 
ing the recent US attempts to 
effect a managed deprecia- 
tion of the dollar with a 
certain fascination. Hie risk 
has always been that the slide 
in the dollar would get out of 
hand and force into reverse 
the gradual easing of US 
monetary policy which we 
have seen over the past few 
months. 

The Americans have a lot 


the confidence of overseas 
investors. 

International confidence in 
the dollar is thus currently 
more important than ever. 

To cut the discount rate as 
the Fed did without German 
support in the run-up to the 
new bond auction pro- 
gramme thus seemed a dis- 
tinctly high risk strategy. The 
rate cut, rather than adding to 
the enthusiasm for US rates, 
simply resulted in a very 
sharp fall in the dollar. The 
dollar's effective exchange 
rate has thus fallen 6 per cent 
since the first week in April. 

A rise in US short rates 
seems unthinkable given do- 
mestic political pressures. 
The abrupt fell in the dollar, 
spectacular even by the vola- 
tile standards in currency 
markets, is nevertheless going 
to provide a severe test for 
the new bond auctions. Few 
would thus rule out a further 
rise in US longer-term inter- 
est rates 

Moreover. US short rates 
may not be about to rise, but 
bond markets around the 


going for them when they try world may have to face an 
and manage their exchange uncomfortable period with 
rate, not least their sheer short-term interest rates 
economic and political power stuck at levels well above 
to influence economic policy those which bond yields were 


in other countries so that it 
will accommodate US poli- 
cies of the day. 

It would be difficult to 
envisage any modern British 
Chancellor, for example, giv- 


moving to discount a few 
weeks ago. 

In many respects, indeed, 
the United Kingdom gilt 
market may be one of the 
more vulnerable markets in- 


ing "advice" quite so bluntly temationally. Gilt yields of 9 
to the German and Japanese per cent or less are discount- 
governments about how they ing further base rate cuts well 
ought to conduct their eco- below 10.5 per cent 
nomic policies as the Ameri- The Chancellor, however, 
cans have recently done. seems to be pursuing an

US policymakers to get on rate policy — probably wisely 
with the business of cutting — in view of oil price uncer-

mounted dramatically in re- 
cent weeks. * 

Bankruptcies in the fann- 
ing states have been joined by 
bankruptcies in the oil states 


to cut base rates again ahead 
of further cuts in short-term 
interest rates internationally. 

Thus although the gilt mar- 
ket, like bond markets 


The Germans, perhaps ex- 
pecting criticism, may deflect 
it by announcing the token 
cut in the Lombard rate 
which they conspicuously did 
not announce last week. Oth- 
erwise, it must be admitted 
optimism has dwindled. 

So, having seen the initial 
round of interest _raie_ re- 
uses to lower oil prices, 
irther progress towards low- 
er interest rates here and 
around ibe world is likely to 

ckuu 

There will be progress 
eventually, since the current 
level of real interest rates is , 
absurd, given unemployment 
both here and elsewhere. 

As inflation fells away this 
summer, moreover, real rates 
will become even more ab- 
surd and the pre ssures to cut 
nominal rates can oftfy 
mount. But the process of 
gening base rates down in 
line with current gilt yields 
will probably take months 
rather than weeks. 

This sort of time gap will 
inevitably leave the market 
vulnerable to accidents — 
political or economic. Fur- 
ther, until we have actually 
seen some firm evidence of 
this year's low inflation rates 
feeding through to lower 
wage settlements, there are 
some feirly solid arguments 
for not chasing longer yields 
very much below current 
levels. 

There would thus seem to 
be good reasons to avoid the 
risks inherent in the longer- 
dated end of the yield curve 
and for moving a little 
shorter. 

The attractions here are 
only compounded when we 
consider the great hope of 
every gilt broker in London. 

If international (Japanese) 


investors are indeed growing 
it would 


nervous of the dollar it 
seem perfectly plausible to 


as the oil price has tumbled, around the world, fully takes 
The combined result is a very on board the implications of 


suggest that tiv^ might diver- 
sify some of their fun 


jjotent political lobby to ease 


monetary policy and cut 
rates. 

The slow process of putting 
together successive rounds of 
internationally coordinated 
interest rate cuts bas thus 
produced growing US impa- 
tience. This culminated in the 
move to cut the discount rate 
a few days ago in spite of 
fairly obvious reluctance on 
the part of the Germans to 


ipi 

lower oil prices for inflation 
and hence real interest rates, 
further progress is going to be 
difficult unless more cuts in 
short-term rates around the 
world come into view. 

Any reductions in rates 
abroad, unfortunately, are 
likely to be slow. Hopes were 
once high that the approach- 
ing Tokyo summit would 
provide an ideal forum for 
further co-ordinated interest 


rods into 
sterling, particularly given 
Mr Lawson's cautious ap- 


proach to the currency. Any 
benefit 


join in another round of rate rale cuts to be hammered out. 
cuts just yet The Americans, however. 

The American impatience seem to be trying to broaden’ 
to cut interest rates and ease the scope of the summit via 


such switch can only 
gilts. 

International investors, 
however, have seldom found 
the longer end of die market 
particularly attractive and 
this seems unlikely to change, 
given the current shape of the 
yield curve. If international , 
investment does come to play ' 
a role in the gUt market, and 
given the problems with US 
policy noted earlier, it is most 
likely to concentrate on the 
medium-dated issues. 


the dollar has tended to 
overlook, even so. the funda- 
mental dependence of the US 
economy at the moment on 


the introduction of issues 
such as terrorism. This seems 
bound to take the emphasis 
away from economic issues.

Rank looks for new 
direction after 
Granada bid blow 


By Cliff FeHtam 

Th e Rank Organisation's 
dream of creating ‘a multi- 
nriffion pound leisure empire 
but of a merger with Granada 
has . ended as no more ttap a 
footnote in the City’s history 
books. 

But the failure — or bl under , 
as some experts still believe — 
has posed the question for Mr 
Michael Gifford, chief execu- 
tive and driving force at Rank, 
where now? 

The first signs of a crack in 
the Rank share twice appeared 
this week after a downgra ding 
of - profit forecasts by .die 
stockbroker, de Zoete and 
Bevan. 

The brokers lopped £10 
million off their 1986 projec- 
tions after a disappointing 
first quarter from the Xerox 
business indicating an out- 
come of £155 million com- 
pared with £137 mini on last 
(ear. 

Most Gty analysts agree 
that while Rank is not expect- 
ed to pop up immediately with 
another me gabid, l k fi rana<ta 
episode leaves the credibility 
of the Rank board open to 
doubt “The present manage- 
ment has little track record of 
entrepreneurial expansion” 
observed one analyst in pro- 
phetic mood even before the 
Granada offer was launched. 

Granada was a perfect fit for 
Rank. Mr Gifford does not 
disguise his disappointment 
He said this week: “The 
opportunities offered by a get- 
together with Granada were 
unique. We will continue to 
look around but I am never 
very optimistic about the 
chances of finding something 
that fits exceptionally well at a 
price we are prepared to pay”. 

He disclosed that Rank had 
drawn up a “menu” of other 
courses of action in case its 
£750 milli on offer drew a veto 
from, the Independent Broad- 
casting Authority apprehen- 
sive about the transfer of 



Michael Gifford: keen to 
expand holiday business 

ownership of the Granada 
television franchise. 

“These ranged from pledges 
to make no rhangw at Grana- 
da TV to demerging it. What 
we never imagined was that 
the IBA would not even talk to 
ns!” 

There is some sympathy for 
Mr Gifford in the City. One 
analyst said: “The Granada 
muddle should be blamed on 
his financial advisers”. 

Mr Oliver Hail, at the 
brokers Grieveson Grant, 
said: “I am still very keen on 
Rank shares. They have a 
record ofbad management but 
have been turned round. The 
unfortunate aspect of the Gra- 
nada affair is that some people 
might wonder whether the 
management ofrflitg ps have 
gone far enough” 

Like most analysts, be was 
hard pressed to think of a 
likely candidate to fulfil's 
Rank's long awaited acquisi- 
tion programme. 

“Their leisure activities are 
very diversified, so they may 
be able to strap on some bits 
and pieces. There should be 
opportunity for picking up 
some parts of Imperial Group, 
assuming that Hanson decides 
to sdL And there may be some 
opportunities to expand its 


hotels, perhaps in the North of 
England.” 

Jane Anscombe. of de Zoete 
and Sevan, said: “The City 
does not want to see Michael 
Gifford leaping into another 
bid just because Granada has 
failed. It is possible he will 
look at expanding in the 
United States or perhaps in 
film services.* 

But while Rank's ability to 
launch a major acquisition has 
been called into question, 
there is no doubting its success 
in weeding out unwanted 
companies. 

Since moving into Rank 
from Cadbury Schweppes in 
July 1983 Mr Gifford has 
disposed ofa £250 million rag- 
bag of businesses, many losing 
money. 

He has successfully refo- 
cused the group, dramatically 
improving the performance of 
its own managed businesses 
and reducing the dependence 
on its earnings from iis Xerox 
bolding 

So where does Rank go 
now? 

Mr Gifford admits be was 
keen to get his hands on 
Granada's considerable cash 
flows generated from its tele- 
vision rental c hains. 

“We are very good at oper- 
ating a lot of cash businesses 
on a large number of sites. Did 
you know that we have over 
75.000 beds in the UK and 
serve around 10 million meals 
a year? 

“We are keen to expand our 
holiday business and have just 
spent £25 million on Butiin’s. 
We would like to be bigger as a 
holiday tour operator and 
think we are underweight in 
overseas holidays. 

In the meantime. Mr' 
Gifford intends to hold on to 
the 8 per cent stake in Grana- 
da buut up during the briefbid 
battle. “It would be nice to 
have under your belt if we 
ever felt able to go back to 
them.” 


When is a monopoly 
not a monopoly? 


The phoney war which has so 
: for -characterized Tiiflsdown 
Holding's £430 million bid for 
S&W Berisford. whose prize 
asset is British Sugar Corpora- 
' tion, must end. soon. BSCs 
arch-rival, Tate & Lyle, or 
another company will join the 
fray with a counter-bid. 

But whatever course the 
battle takes, its outcome is 
likely to be decided, or at least 
heavily influenced, by White- 
hall. And an important part of 
the regulators’ deliberations 
.will be the consequences for 
Britain's national sugar policy 
of a successful bid. 

BSC is more than just a 
company. It is, in a sense, a 
whole industry- The corpora- 
tion has a monopoly in Britain 
of beet sugar refining and 
controls slightly more than 
half of the 2-2 million tonnes 
of sugar refined each year in 
this country. 

The European Community 
sugar pricing regime ensures 
that BSC is more profitable 
than Tate, which has the rest 
of the British market and 
refines only cane sugar. 

The Community regime is 
crucial to understanding why 
BSC is powerful, to the point 
of being semwnonopolistic, 
even without being merged 
with Tate, as the Tate manage- 
ment would tike. 

The regime is unusual in 
settiite not just the price to the 
beet firmer — as it guarantees 
prices to other farmers — but 
also in establishing the price 
received by the manufacturer. 

But beet and cane refiners 
do not enjoy the same mar- 
gins. Whereas the cost of beets 
at the factory gate is about 
£2 1 8 a tonne, the price guaran-

Enters But Tate has been putting a BSC. 1 
mar - sophisticated case to the Of- the Gc 


fice of Fair Trading. Its argu- 
ment is that abuse of market 
position — the EEC way of 
looking at monopoly — in 
Britain is prevented by the 


ready availability of cheap 
sugar from the Continent 

The question, therefore, to 
which the regulators should 
address themselves in the 
event of a bid by Tale for BSC. 
or indeed by any company 
which raises monopoly ques- 
tions, is whether the monopo- 
ly should be seen only in a 
British context or m the wider 
European one. 

Does the free movement of 
white sugar within the Com- 
munity render the idea of a 
•'British” monopoly 
redundant? 

Whitehall's view at the mo- 
ment seems dear. It is happy 
with the present structure of 
the British industry, and 
wants to keep both BSC and 
Tate in business as separate 
and competing companies. If 
changes are to be made, they 
can be accommodated by 
increasing Britain’s overall 
quota to take account of 
demand for chemical uses of 
sugar (perhaps another 
150,000 tonnes by the mid- 
1990s) or by narrowing the 
differential between cane and 
beet refining margins. 

Underlying this approach is 
thegeneral policy of food self- 
sufficiency. No British gov- 
ernment. whether in the 
Community or not, yet seems 
prepared to countenance de- 
pendence on other countries 
for a commodity as basic as 
sugar. 

The legal obligation on the 
OFT is to recommend a 
referral in a case such as that 
posed by a Tate takeover of 
BSC. It is hard to believe that 
the Government would set so 
portentous a precedent as 
allowing a foil domestic mo- 
nopoly of sugar refining, re- 
gardless of the European 
dimension. 


Institute fears ‘blacklist’ of directors 


By Lawrence Lever 


provisions relating to the dis- 
qualification and personal li- 
ability of company directors 
come into force today. 

: Coming as part of the 
Insolvency Act 1985, they 
have sparked off c laim s from 
the Institute of Directors that 
they will lead to the Depart- 
ment of Trade and Indnsoy 
blacklisting directors of insofc* 
yenl companies. . 

• The Act provides for -dis- 
qualification of directors from 
■holding office on 
4be grounds that they are unfit 


to be involved in the man- 
agement of a company. 

it also obliges the person 
responsible for overseeing the 
winding up of an insolvent 
company, such as the liquida- 
tor, to submit a report to the 
Secretary of State, examining 
the conduct of every director 
holding office in the three 
years • preceeding ibe 
insolvency. 

Any evidence suggesting 
that a director might be unfit 
to.be concerned in the man- 
agement of a company will be

passed on to the Secretary of 
State. 

“It is now dear that the 
Department will require a 
report on every director in- 
volved in a company insol- 
vency. not just those a 
liquidator considers to be 
‘unfit’,” Mr Andrew Hutchin- 
son. principal research execu- 
tive at the institute, says. 

“The material contained in 
these reports, which will have 
lo be submitted, following 
every company insolvency is 
more than enough for the 
Department to build up a 
dossier on directors with a 
track record of company fail- 
ure — and indeed of over- 
lenient liquidators." 

Disqualification of a direc- 
tor will, however, require a 
court application by the Secre- 
tary of State, rather than being 
an automatic process after an 
insolvency is envisaged. 

The Insolvency Act 1985 
also lays down guidelines for 
the courts lo take into account 
in determining whether a di- 
rector is unfit. 

These include a director’s 


responsibility for misapplica- 
tion or retention of monies or 
property of the company, for 
causing the company to enter 
into transactions which de- 
fraud creditors, and for the 
failure by the company to 
supply goods or services 
which had been paid for.

US bank 
takes 
over two 
brokers 

By Richard Lauder 

The City's latest financial 
marriage to result from rela- 
tionships forged over the Iasi 
four years ahead of October’s 
big bang takes place today, 
with the United States bank. 
Chase Manhattan, coming to 
the altar with two partners in 
the shape of the stockbrokers 
Simon and Coates and Laurie 
Miibank. 

Chase is increasing its slake 
in the two brokers from a 
minority to 100 per cent and is 
combining both with its Lon- 
don-based Eurobond and cor- 
porate finance division to 
form a new company to be 
called Chase Manhattan 
Securities. 

The financial arrangements 
involved in creating the con- 
glomerate which will employ 
about 700 people, have not 
been disclosed. 

Simon and Coates's senior 
partner, Mr Michael Prag, said 
the headhunting merry-go- 
round, which has seen foe 
salaries of top City analysts 
and market makers rocket 
over- foe past year, still pre- 
vails. He said:“We are trying 
to build up our equity market- 
making team while other job- 
bing-based firms are looking 
at us for company 
researchers.” 

However, he estimated that 
Chase has now built up about 
half its 30 market makers and 
has lost fewer people over foe 
last 12 months than in a 
normal year. 

As in many marriages, the 
newly-weds are havirg to 
make do with slightly 
cramped temporary accom- 
modation while foe new borne 
is being prepared. 

This weekend, Simon and 
Coates’s gilu bonds and corpo- 
rate finance teams have been 
leaving Finsbury Circus for 
Laurie Milbank's offices 
across London Wall in 
Basinghal! Street, passing foe 
equities personnel from Lau- 
rie Miibank as they move in 
foe opposite direction. 

In August the operation 
will move to Chase's bead- 
quarters at Woolgate House 
near Moorgate. where a new 
250-position dealing room is 
under construction. 


FINANCE AND INDUSTR v 


ANALYSIS 


All this and taxmen 
too beset oil firms 


Most British oil companies 
have financial years which 
end on December 31. The 
catastrophic drop in the oil 
mice has therefore largely 
been a post-balance-sheet 
event. In announcing their 
1985 results, oil companies 
have alluded to foe felling oil 
price in their chairmen's 
statements, but they have 
been spared from showing 
the effects on their results. 

There is, of course, always 
the chance that foe price will 
strengthen again if the Orga- 
nization of Petroleum Ex- 
porting Countries restrains 
its supply meaningfully. On 
present form, however, there 
is a distinct possibility that 
low oil prices will be with us 
for two or three years. 

Although the accountancy 
profession is working on a 
standard which will cover the 
treatment of permanent loss 
in value of assets in the oil 
industry*, it is not expected to 
be ready until later this year. 
In the meantime, oil compa- 
nies will be reporting both 
quarterly and ann ual results 
to March 31, a day when oil 
and currency markets com- 
bined to give £6.95 per barrel, 
the lowest sterling oil price 
seen yet in the current crises. 

At the end of each year, the 
auditor applies a “ceiling 
test" to ail assets to ensure 
that book value is no higher 
than realizable value. In the 
case of oilfields, this will be 
based on foe discounted 
present value of future cash 
flows, normally using period 
end oil prices. 

Once an asset has been 
written down it cannot be 
written back up again Re- 
porting companies will there- 
fore understandably be 
reluctant to use foe March 31 
price. In the absence of any 
guidelines the exercise of 
judgement is certain to pro- 
duce a whole range of prices, 
and anything from $15 to $20 
a barrel is more likely to be 
substituted at this stage. If 
this gives a lower value than 
book value, then the asset 
must be written down. 


The impact of low oil 
prices on the balance sheet 
will vary throughout foe in- 
dustry, depending on foe 
carrying value of these assets. 
The assets which will be hit 
hardest in a revaluation wul 
be foe most recently devel- 
oped. and therefore the most 
expensive, fields, and fields 
in production which were 
purchased rather than devel- 
oped by foe company in 
question. 

Forties and Claymore units 
sold by BP and Occidental 
are therefore likely to suffer 
as they were purchased at 
pretax values when the oil 
price was nearer $30. 

Thus, for a Forties unit 
which had a fully taxed 
present value of just over £4 
million when foe oil price 
was $30. a purchaser was 
willing to pay £7 million 
bf reny he would be able to 
use the tax to shelter his 
drilling. The hanks, which 
had grown used to ever 
inflating oil prices, made 
loans to the purchasing com- 
panies to enable them to buy. 
The terms of these loans vary 
from borrower to borrower. 

There are two main ways of 
borrowing. “Gearing cover” 
is based on the total balance 
sheet and the formula win 
state that borrowing must not 
exceed a certain percentage of 
shareholders' funds. If assets 
have to be written down this 
can, in some cases, reduce 
shareholders’ funds to a leyd 
where they no longer provide 
cover for the loan, creating a 
problem both for foe borrow- 
er and for the bank. 

The “borrowing base 
formula” is more like project 
finance. It is based on the 
capital value of the field, 
using the discounted cash 
flow method as agrred by the 
lending banks. Typically, the 
present value calculation will 
be before corporation tax and 
often it will be before petro- 
leum revenue lax. If assets 
are written down below the 
level of foe borrowing base. 


loans may be called in. or, in 
the case of new fields, fends 
for development may 00 
longer be available. 

_ As foe accountancy profes- 
sion has not issued any firm 
rules it is tar from dear bow 
companies will account for ' 
these adjustments in foe prof- 
it and loss account. If the 
amounts are not significant 
they may be included in foe 
general depreciation charge. 
If they are large they could be 
treated as exceptional or 
even as extraordinary items. 

The new accounting stan- 
dard ED36 allows the defini- 
tion of an extraordinary item 
to include a situation where 
there has been a permanent 
diminution of an asset due to 
an unusual event. The rapid 
collapse in the oil price was 
certainly unusuaL 
. Several companies may al- 
ready be dose to foe point 
where they cannot carry on. 
The trigger mechanism is 
likely to be foe company’s 
banker, and foe banks are 
already worried about the 
dwindling cover for their 
loans. 

But some companies' cash 
flows must also be giving rise 
to grave concern. The direct 
effect of lower receipts from , 
the sale of oil is compounded 1 
by a quirk in foe petroleum 
revenue tax rules. In order to 
collect the revenue as quickly 
as possible, the Government 
estimates each six months* \ 
liability on the basis of the 
previous six months’ pay- 
ments. This amount is then 
paid in monthly instalments, 
and if there is an over or 
under-payment, an adjust- 
ment is made in subsequent 
periods. 

That means the industry is 
now paying monthly instal- 
ments of PRT based on 
liabilities for the six months 
to last December, when the 
oil price was nearly three 
limes its present leveL 

Is there no end to the 
misery?

'and- watch the money rolling 
in — almost as if they had hit

the large companies do on 
their products and sell it for a 
quarter of the cost? 

There is a risk of course — 
make your clone too close to 
the orgjnafand you could find 
yourself in court accused of 
infringing copyrights. 

The law on computer copy- 
right in most countries is 
decidely shaky with copyright 
laws made before the advent 
of computers often being ap- 
plied. Earlier this month the 
British Government pub- 
lished a White Paper on 
copyright ' that should give 
computer programmers in this 
country more protection. But 
where should the line be 
drawn? 

Though it is generally ac* 
cepted that directly copying 
the instructions in someone 


clone at say £100 sells largely 
to small businesses and seri- 
ous computer users at home 
who do not have the £300 to 
£400 to spend on a brand 
leader, while medium and 
large companies still tend to 
favour the established leaders 
with their emphasis on pro- 
viding a good after-sales ser- 
vice — though this is likely to 
change as the clones gain more 
respectability. 

While cheap clones of soft- 
ware packages have not 
caused the slump among the 
brand leaders that many pre- 
dicted, the advent of the cheap 
business computer might 
present a more serious 
problem. 

A rostra d's £450 word-pro- 
cessor cum desktop micro is 
the clearest signal that soft- 


The basic concept of many programs 
can obviously not be patented 
by indmdnal firms so they are 
left with an undefined area in the middle 


rise's program is likely to lead 
to trouble, software compa- 
nies can often, in computer 
terms, arrive at the same 
result through different 
methods. 

The basic concept of many 
programs, such as processing 
words or calculating figures on 
spreadsheets, can obviously 
not be patented by individual 
firms so they are- left with a 
huge undefined area in the 
middle' to argue about. For 
example, the way a program 
looks on the screen - how 
many columns; which screens 
have what information on 
them, etc? 

But in the case of dones. 
most companies can ^produce 
nearly all the advantages of a 
best-selling package while 
changing the content and ap- 
pearance enough to avoid 
charges of copying. 

So far, both types of package 
are still selling — the cheap 


ware firms might have to get 
used to providing their prod- 
ucts at a third, or even a 
quarter, of their current prices. 

Those who spend less than 
£500 on a microcomputer are 
plainly going to baulk at the 
idea of paying several hundred 
for each program. Computer 
software has often been priced 
at what the market will bear 
rather than its cost plus profit 
margin. And when a desktop 
computer costs £3,000 or 
£4,000 consumers were more 
likely to accept programs at 10 
per cent of the cost of the 
machinery. 

Some companies have pro- 
duced cut-down versions of 
their products at anything 
from £50 to £100 specifically 
for the Amstrad. But it is dear 
that these programs are so 
close to their more expensive 
cousins that the price differ- 
ence bears no relation to 
production costs while other 


companies are wary of admit- 
ting their products can be sold 
so cheaply for fear it might 
backfire with their high profit 
customers. 

Though company custom- 
ers tend to place more empha- 
sis on such areas as sales 
support and reputation when 
choosing software rather than 
rushing for the cheapest deal 
available they are also causing 
software developers problems. 

With the increase in linking 
computers through networks 
and systems that can handle 
several users, companies can 
have one piece of software 
that is accessed or even copied 
by several terminals or shared 
around an office. 

Software firms are well 
aware that they are not going 
to get rich selling a single piece 
of software to companies that 
are able to share it around 
dozens of terminals while 
customers are unwilling to pay 
anything near full price if they 
are ronvinced into buying 
dozens of copies of the 
program. 

The most fashionable an- 
swer now is site licensing — a 
sort of half-way bouse where 
companies pay for the right to 
distribute a particular product 
around their organization as 
they see fiL 

Software companies in the 
personal . computer field are 
now faced 'with whether to 
concentrate on producing 
cheaper software or, through 
the use of huge advertising 
campaigns,, attempt the in- 
creasingly difficult task of 
trying to brand their products 
as distinctive enough to com- 
mand a premium price. 

The various factors that are 
pushing towards paying for 
software at a price based on 
what it costs to develop and 
duplicate will mean some 
software firms becoming a 
little leaner to cope with 
conventional profit margins. 

In the end it must be good 
news for th e customer. _

And lo, the wimp was bom 


First there was the chip. And 
the chip prospered among the 
initiated. They came to love its 
flickering green screen, they 
learnt its languages and 
swapped anecdotes about the 
dialects of CPM and MOS- 
DOS late into the night. And 
the word was with the knowl- 
edgeable. Until the sales re- 
turns came in. 

. And they said that knowl- 
edgeable as the average micro- 
user might be, he or she was a 
freak. Most people did not 
want to spend their waking 
hours deciphering computer 
codes in order to carry out 
routine jobs, such as logging 
accounts and sending 
mailshots. And most people 
are where the market is. 

So there was a change of 
heart oa the part «f the 
managing directors. And they 
tamed to their research de- 
partments where, in the full- 
ness of time, were bom three 
creatures of the new comput- 
ing age: the Window, the Icon, 
the Mouse and the Picture. Lo, 
the WIMP had arrived. 

The Apple Lisa is generally 
credited for being the first 
machine to ™ke use of 


WLMPs. In fact the idea first 
originated in the Palo Alto, 
California laboratories of 
Rank Xerox, but it was the 
Lisa which turned it into a 
marketable product. The first 
Lisa, and its cheaper 
conterpart. the Mac, had a 
handy little mouse, a device 
which could move the cursor 
around the screen and perform 
other functions without refer- 
ence to the keyboard. 

Its programs and documents 
were not referred to by the old- 

Change of heart 
on the part of 
managing directors 


fashioned MS-DOS names of 
WSTAR.EXE for a word- 
processing programme, but a 
pretty little picture of a pen. 
When you wanted to delete 
something, you did not type in 
a line of code but used the 
mouse to drag the icon into a 
little rubbish bin sitting in the 
■ corner of the screen. When you 
found you had junked the 
wrong thing, you went back to 


the dustbin to retrieve the 
contents. 

And then there were win- 
dows. These gave the screen 
the appearance of a piece of 
paper which could be stretched 
or increased in size at will. If 
you had written something 
which you wanted to hang on 
to while you edited something 
else, you just shrank it into the 
corner of the screen and 
referred to it during your new 
session. Using these new tools, 
you could almost forget you 
were working on a computer at 
all. All that jargon would fly 
out of the window. French 
without tears had arrived. 

Of course, it was inevitable 
that every other computer 
company which had not 
thought of WIMPS would 
decry them as the da f test idea 
the business had ever pro- 
duced. And equally inevitable, 
when the idea caught on, that 
every single one of them wonld 
try to leap onto the bandwagon 
the minute they could. So 
desperate was the race to 
produce a “windows 
environment" that Apple 
found itself going to court 


against one software manufac- 
turer to defend its copyright 
over the idea. And it won. 

But good ideas will out and 
now windows are appearing all 
over the place, standard on the 
Apricot, the Atari, and bun- 
dled with a number of IBM 
and compatible packages. 
Even the bargain basement 
Amstrad PCW 8256 has a 
bash at user friendliness with 
its pulldown menu -of com- 
mands. So bow useful are 
these brig ht new ideas? well, 

Windows gave 
users a 

differe nt picture 

one must first establish that 
there are wimps and wimps. 

The Mac, and the Atari 
520ST and Commodore 
Amiga which followed, are the 
real thing. They possess what 
are known as bit-mapped 
screens, which means that 
every single high-resolution 
dot confronting the user can be 
changed quickly. Most of their 
predecessors jwst saw the

The age of the 
wimp is nigh 


From previous page ' 
world as an alphabet of low 
resolution green dots, usually 
grouped together as letters. 
Not much good for 
with a complex graphics 
enviomment. IBM and 
compatibles require a graphics 
card and a high-resolution 
monitor just to he able to deal 
with wimps — then, someone 
has to write the software. 

This does not mean that the 
mid results are inferior to 
those on machines jgmd 
for the job — just that they 
take a little longer to arrhei 
and In some cases never quite, 
make it at alL 

Is the effort really worth- 
while? Yes, with a few reserva- 
tions. A computer running a 
visual operating system and 
software which nwfa'iif it ^ an 
save hours of training time, 
and probably make computers 
usable to people who would 

Otherwise find them baffling . 

One example of this ease of 
use will suffice. Imagine copy- 
ing a file called letters from 

All is not what 
ft seems to be 

one disc to another. Under 
standard MS-DOS thh would 
invol ve typ ing the tine COPY 
A:LETTERS Bu An errant 
space in the phrasing would 
throw the. whole operation. 
The wimps user just positions 
his cursor over the relevant file 
and drags it onto the icon 
represerting his new disc. 
Nothing more; 

But~. all wimps are not what 
they appear to be. A number of 
those used on IBM machines 
are shop windows only. They 
will pot a pretty gloss on the 
computer and let you represent 
Wordstar, for example, as a 
typewriter. But once you have 
worked your way through the 
wimps, the software is the 


same old, mtfriendly program 
it always was. 

That kind of set-up may not 
be worth wile. Always remem- 
ber that wimps are slower to 
nse than basic operating sys- 
tems. You may find yourself 
slowing everything np for 
purely cosmetic purposes. 

.Good picture-based soft- 
ware Is a joy to nse and helps 
malm a computer more trans- 
parent to the novice. But not 
everything is suited to the 
wimps ■ environment When 
Apple came out with its new 
Mac Plus ft replaced a couple 
of the key icons with simple 
old word and the keyboard 
also sprouted cursor keys for 
those moments — principally 
in word processing - when the 
moose is not the best way to 
get around the screen. 

In the kmgnm, it is a matter 
of personal choice. People who 
have been using computers for 
-some years and taken the time 
to learn their awkward tittle 
ways may get little or nothing 
out of a system which de- 
scribes a communkatioiis pro- 
gram as a picture of a 
telephone. 

Newcomers may feel differ- 
ently, particularly when they 
discover some of the clever 
tittle add-on programs around. 
The Mac comes with a set of 
desk accessories which can be 
expanded to bold notes, con- 
tacts lists, a calendar and even 
a phone book which, with the 
right equipment, win diaJ pri- 
vate voice calls for you. The 
IBM has a splendid program 
called Sidekick that does 
much the same thing. 

They may not mean an 
awful lot to serious computer 
programmers, but to the aver- 
age user they might just 
represent what personal com- 
puters ought to be about — and 
sell a lot of machines. 

David Hewson 


Everything in 
a memory 
aimed at speed 


Memory is the go-fester stripe 
of the computer business. 
Manufacturers boast of the 
size of their machine's RAM 
(Random Access Memory) in 
advertisements, as if the num- 
ber of K a machine possessed 
were some guarantee that it 
will run fester and perform 
more efficiently than the op- 
position. Would that it were' 
so _ 

Today ? s obsession with 
quoting RAM figures is an 
after-effect of the world slide 
in chip prices. - 

A few years ago the cost of 
64K of RAM was high enough 
to force the price of home 
computers to more than £300, 
and the BBC micro, with half 
that size, sold in thousands for 
even more. 

Then memory prices started 
to tumble and the average 
RAM size of a basic business 
micro rose to 25 6K. Most 
serious micros will now start 
off with at least 512K, and by 
the end of the year that will 
have doubled to one 
megabyte. 

But does the race for bigger 
memory have any practical 
advantages for the ordinary 
user? 

. In the long run, the answer 
is unquestionably yes. Micros 
which have several megabyte 
of RAM will be able to 
perform functions far beyond 
the capabilities of the best of 
today's machines. At the mo- 
ment, however, you must 
choose your software carefully 
or configure your system to 
your own needs if you want to 
make S12K. or one megabyte 
of memory worthwhile. 

Much of the software sold is 
still designed for smaller 
memory machines and offers 


tittle more on something more 
modem. 

RAM is the memory of the 
computer which is available 
for temporarily running pro- 
grams and storing data. The 
larger it is, the more electronic 
jerks software can perform on 
your machine. 

i Equally, if your software is 
already a puny weakling show- 
ing its age, it will still be 
puffing and panting to do the 
job. even if you give ft a 'shiny 
new gym to work out in. 

People with older software 
can get something out of 
bigger memory by buying a 
program known as a RAM 
disc or RAM cache. This fools 
the computer into thinking 
that part of its expanded 
memory is actually a new disc 
drive. 

Transfer a program such as 
Wordstar into that . RAM 
drive and it will run much 
fester than usual. 

The reason is easy to grasp; 
RAM is electronic and fast, 
ordinary disc drives are me- 
chanical and much slower. 
The cache is -an advanced 
RAM disc which remembers 
which part of a- program you 
use most and automatically 
stores them in memory so that 
they are ready for use 
instantaneously. 

A modicum of care is 
needed with RAM discs. Ev- 
erything they contain will 
disappear when the machine 
is switched off, so permanent 
files must be copied onto a 
conventional disc 

Room must also be left in 
memory for the program to 
run, otherwise the computer is 
likely to lode up in a most 
spectacular fashion. 

RAM discs will speed up 



many operations on existing 
machine^ and make an enor- 
mous difference to computers 
such as the Apple Macintosh 
which are ' slow to access 
floppy disc drives. But larger 
memory really comes into its 
own when it runs . software 
which is specifically designed 
for it, and in the last six 
months a number of programs 
have appeared on the market 
which point the way ahead for 
the persona] micro. 

Some of the most interest- 
ing developments are in word 
processing. 

Before expanded memory 
came along word processing 
programs often 


PSION XCHANGE. 

Hie all-in-one business software. 

Try it at our expense. If you don’t like it, 
you can have your old problems back. 


With so much software around, choosing can be 
a nightmare. And costly, if you get it wrong. 

So we've come up with a dream of an idea to help 
you prove for yourself the value of Psion Xchange. 
At our expense. 

Psion Xchange comprises four integrated and 
inter-active business programs: a sophisticated 
word processor (Xchange Quill), one of the most 
advanced databases yet developed (Xchange 
Archive), a comprehensive financial modelling 
spreadsheet (Xchange Abacus), and an extensive 
business-graphics creator (Xchange Easel). 

Data can not only be transferred freely from one 
program to another, you can also switch from 
program to program in the middle of a task, as the 
job dictates. 

Just what you need to transform your 
system into a very powerful, highly efficient 
workhorse. 

There's more. With the Network 
Upgrade, it will run on all popular MS/NET 
networks, with full record locking facilities. 

It's British. Which means we're right on 
the spot for support, should you ever be in 
a spot for help. 

And it costs little more than you'd expect 
to pay for a ny one of the 
individual programs .. 


(which can be purchased separately, if you wish). 
We also offer very attractive site licencing terms, 
and special terms for educational usage. 

However, we don't expect you to 'buy on spec' 
Instead, we've produced an Evaluation Version for 
you to test for yourself, for a nominal handling 
charge of £1 0. If you like it (as 1 50,000 other users 
do), send it back to us and we'll refund your money 
towards the cost of the Psion Xchange suite. If you 
don't, send it back to us anyway, and we'll still 
refund your money. Either way, it costs you nothing 
to prove Psion Xchange is everything we -and the 
media - claim itto be. 5end the coupon for your 
Evaluation copy orfurther details.

RAM discs call for 
a modicum of care to 
avoid painfnl lock np 

links with the electronic dic- 
tionaries and thesauruses, but 
the process of using them was 
time consuming. Usually one 
wrote an article, closed the file 
and then inserted a new disc 
which ran it against the dictio- 
nary. 

After five minutes or so, any 
words which the dictionary 
did not recognise were marked 
in the text so that the writer 
could return to the file to 
check them. 

With RAM, spell-checking 
is fester and more practical. 
The latest word processors, 
such as Word Perfect and 
NewWord3, come with dictio- 
naries as before, but they are 


now loaded directly into RAM 
and check text as it is written. 

Some wil] even beep at the 
writer every time he types 
something it doesn't recog- 
nize, a feature which, perhaps, 
wisely, can.be turned off if it 
becomes too annoying 

Modern word processors 
will .not just tell you that yon 

have misspelt a word but offer 

what they think is the correct 
spelling as well, and if you 
need to flick through a The- 
saurus , you should be able to 
find several possible substi- 
tutes in under a second. 

They are also a boon for 
anyone who wants to cheat at 
crosswords; by using wild- 
card checking techniques you 
. can ask the dictionary to list 
every word it knows which has 
seven letters and begins with a 
and ends with a 

. The other computer users 
who are most likely to take 
advantage of expanded mem- 
ory at the moment are accoun- 
tants. who find that large 
spreadsheet operations are too 
memory-hungry for unex- 
panded machines and 
database users who need a 
system that can address a large 
number of data entries from 
RAM and not floppy disc. 

But, fast as all these im- 
provements may appear, they 
are only the start of what 
could happen in a world where 
computer memory is far great- 
er than today. 

The key probably lies in 
what the computer world calls 
“multi-tasking” the ability of 


a . computer to do several 
things at onct ; 

' This ■ is ; bard "for most 
micros. A number can, for 
instance, write a letter while 
despatching a ■ telex/ but .the 
more tasks' which -are- run 
concurrently^ fife; slower each 
becomes. With a greatly -in- 
creased RAM and hew fester 
CPUs, one small desktop mi- 
cro should be able to cany out 
several tasks in : background 
and, ’at the same time, com- 
municate with other comput- 
ers in the same office network 
while still' functioning az full

Amstrad finds the 
price is right 


The personal micro Tnismete 
has gained its own equivalent 
Of the -Model T Ford daring 
-the past year in the form of the 
Amstrad PCW ,8256, £399 
worth of computer, screen an d 
primer, which is remarkable 
for no other reason but its 
'prices ...... . 

Amstrad broke all the rules 
by using yesterday's technol- 
ogy to produce a computer for 
a rock bottom price. And, of 
course; it has proved an 
astonishing success, creating 
in its wake the sans sort of 
software boom which fol- 
lowed the popularity of the 
Sinclair Spectrum in the home 
games market 

The. PCW has also persuad- 
ed software companies that 
there might be a market for 
their wares among snail users 
if they are prepared 10 drop: 
their prices. Before : the 
Amstrad arrived the custom^. 
asy price fora standard piece 
of business software was at 
least £200. The most popular 
products retailed well above 
thirfevel, usually at about 
£500. • • - 

- Where the tittle computer 
changed perceptions com- 
pletely was m the price level of 
standard business programs 
for word processing, account- 
ing, database and communica- 
tions which had been around 
for years selling in relatively 
small numbers to those who 
could afford them: The ma- 
chine' uses CPM, once tile 
industry standard operating 
system, now largely aban- 
doned for MS-DOS. 

The machine's qwn custom 
word-processing ' program, 
LocoScript, had .a few defi- 
ciencies ur its early versions, 
most of which are now cured. . 
Bat once it became apparent 
that the machine was selling in 
large quantities, software 
houses started to adapt their 
long-abandoned CPM . soft- 
ware • - 

Within a few months famil- 
iar IBM names such . as 
Wordstar: dBasell and 
SuperCalc2 started to become 
available. The software re- 
mains basically the same, the 
'price has tumbled. - . 

But how much of a bargain 


is the software? It depends on 
. bow you rate a bargain. Few 
large companies wiu take it 
into their hands to write 
programs simply for one ma- 
chine T.albne and, ‘ since 
Amstrad has made it dear that 
its next machine is. an. ultra- 
cheap" 16-bit IBM compatfe 
the days of the PCW as flavour 
of the month are limited.. 

The Amstrad has attracted 
ode highly regarded ' new 
word-processing program. 
New Word which, for a mere 
£69.00, ' includes a 45,000 
word, .spelling, checker. But 
ihat may be an exception; 
whatever new software ap- 
pears is likely to come' from 
small independent houses 
whose products may be every 
bit as good; ifnot better than, 
the .industry standards, . but 
they will lack the backup - 
■ The old software that has 
been' adapted for die Amstrad 
may be perfectly: adequate for 
your needs, which may be just 
as weUsmceitis unlikely to be 
upgraded or improved from

short, you are buying a ma- 
chine with a vast software base 
of programs which -tee,- in the 
main; sligh tly antiquated and 
may soon be teetering on the 
obsolete. . 

But, Amstrad users may 
respond, the ' machine has 
proved there is no such word 
as obsolete in the computer 
world; 'Only computers which 
work (or not! and sell- and 
tbose which work (or not) and

does, where isthe problem?

ing flight schedules of more 
than 750 airlines and offering 
direct flight booking. 

Datasolve's current price is 
£1 a minute for which users 
have access to material from 
newspaperssuch as the Finan- 


cial Times. The Guardian, 
Washington Post and The 
Economist, plus news agencies 
including the Associated Press 
and BBC External Services. 
These two gateways are only 
the stan, says Mr Bury. 

Prestel, now with 65,000 
users, 55 per cent of whom are 
in the business sector, preced- 
ed Gold as public information 
provider and now has 330,000 
pages of data drawn from 
more than 1 ,200 sources. 

A home subscription to 
Prestel costs £6.50 a quarter, 
£18 for business users, plus 6p 
a minute line charge during 
peak hours, with 98 percent of 
UK calls charged at local rate. 

The most popular items are 
MicroNet, a service for home 
computer users, Citi Service, 
providing share prices, and 
Prestel Travel containing 
holiday details. CitiService 
has many rivals, from Fmstat, 


run by Financial Times Busi- 
ness Information to the inter- 
national news agency Reutera. 

Brokers can choose from a 
wide range of services special- 
izing in different aspects of the 
market. including 

Daiasiream. owned by Dunn 
& Bradstreeu for statistical 
analysis; Quotron for the US 
Dow Jones Index; Bridge Data 
for fiitures. 

For background on individ- 
ual companies, Extel cards are 
now online as the Extel Exam- 
iner database, and McCarthy 
cards as McCarthy Online, a 
service launched in February. 

"The database is growing at 
25 million characters a week 
and we now have files on 
16.000 companies and more 
than 300 industrial subjects. 
Our emphasis is on full text 
information and on getting it 
up on the system within 72 
hours of receiving it." says 
Anthony Garnett, managing 


SOFTWARE/3 


director of McCarthy Infor- 
mation in Warminster. 

The selection of publicly 
available databases in Britain 

,; kely to widen considerably 
over the coming year. 

One US supplier. Mead 
Data Central, is making a 
serious bid for UK subscribers 
after its takeover of 
Bunerworth Telepublishing 
opening up databases such as 
Nexis (news). Lexis (law), and 
US patents (also available 
from Pergamon-Infoline in 
London) over leased transat- 
lantic lines. 

/rooicafly. the US Patent 
Office is a major customer of 
Pergamon-Infoline. which is 
growing at an annual rate of 
100 per cent and exporting 60 
per cent of its products to 52 
countries. 

Despite Pergamon's news- 
paper interests there are no 
plans to put these online. Mr 
Gibbins doubts whether home 
users will ever become major 
subscribers. 

“There are probably no 
more than 100,000 users in 
Europe, the majority of whom 
are still information profes- 
sionals such as technical li- 
brarians and corporate 
information officers. The 
home consumer thinks of 
information as free. 

“People think that when 
they buy a newspaper they are 
paying for the paper — they are 
not used to separating the 
contents from the medium 
and this must happen for 
online services to succeed,” he 
explained

career choice 


Tough rewards in outdoor life 



■fene and Tiin Bayliss have taken an 
unusual step for young formas with the 
start-up of their own agriculture business 
ro addition to their regular forming job. 
The couple hopes that one day this will 
allow them to form independently. The 
venture started with the purchase of 50 
ewes, and as the couple cautiously 
report, they have already started to repay 
their loan. But they point out that the 
scheme is only feasible because Tim is 
employed as a form manager, while Jane 
runs their sheep and goats enterprise. 

This fact illustrates one of farming's 
hard realities: the high cost of land and 
the targe capital needed for start-up 
make it very difficult for young people to 
be their own boss unless their parents 
own a form or are tenant 
Neither of these requirements applies to 
Tim and Jane. 

However, fanning knowledge and 
skills are also necessary, and it is here 
that the couple have a good start. Both 
have the Higher National Diploma from 
Wrinle Agricultural College: From the 
start of his training Tim now 27, knew he 
wanted the challenge of management 
and 3 financial stake in his work. After 
college he spent two years as assistant 
form manager in Lincolnshire, this 
eventually led to his present job manag- 
ing an arable and beef form in Essex. 

lane, meanwhile, worked at a research 
institute, and later became a shepherdess 
in Sussex. But with support provided by 
Tim's managerial job they married and 
moved into the house that goes with his 
work. Tim then rented 30 acres — mainly 
from his boss — and foe couple set up 
their own venture (unaided by the

Romantic ideas are blown 
away by harsh circumstance 


because

they had not heard of it.) 

Their venture is comprised of sheep 
for commercial fot lamb production and 
a goat's milk unit. Jane makes organic 
cheese, a process foe learned by trial and 
error and attending a course. At present 
outlets 3re wholesalers and small chains. 

The hours are very long, starting at 
6.30am. At harvest lime Tim may be 
occupied until midnight, whereas Jane is 
frantically busy in foe lambing season. 
He helps when he can, but foe responsi- 
bility for animals means they cannot get 
away for more than a weekend, even 
with the hiring of a lad to help. 

The couple think they have been 
lucky, primarily because Tim's boss is 
cooperative. “Lack of money is a 
difficulty in forming today and there's a 
shortage of opportunities for beginners, 
so you have to take on the responsibility 
yourself" says Jane. "We have used foe 
focilities we've got. to start reasonably 
small and build up." 

Says Tim: "It's only frightening when 
you look back, not when you're starting. 
We enjoy having our own business, the 
challenge to create something from 
nothing. Romantic ideas of forming are 
blown away by foe harsh circumstances, 


but I like foe challenge and satisfaction 
of working with animals and with the 
weather." 

Tim has just taken a course on the 
former as manager, a useful subject for 
anyone hoping to progress in agriculture, 
and an indication of foe importance of 
business skills. Some Agricultural Train- 
ing Board courses have tides similar to 
those for managers in any commercial 
organization: work planning, managing 
staff, self-management, selection and 
training; others deal with financial 
management. 

The ATB has also introduced the S 
series, or supervisory development pro- 
gramme. for high fliers between 20 and 
30. who attend residential courses over 
two years, combined with projects at the 
work place. 

Rates of pay do not compare well with 
industry and forming calls for great 
dedication. But, it also has much to offer 
people willing to work alone, keen to 
work with animals, crops and machinery 
and prepared to be outdoors in aU 
weather. You must also be open to 
change from the constant developments 
in science and technology. 

Training lakes three categories, de- 
pending on your choice and the entry 
qualifications you can offer. You can 
prepare for a degree in agriculture or one 
of several related subjects such as 
veterinary science, agricultural science 
or agricultural economics, agricultural 
botany, agricultural biochemistry. A 
qualification can lead to a research, 
administrative or advisory post; there 
are also postgraduate grants and awards. 

Your career could also lie in one of the ~ 


teaching opportunities, too, in universi- 
ties and colleges. 

Most counties have an agricultural 
college where students can take a one- 
year certificate course or a tfuw-year 
sandwich diploma, generally after a 
year's practical experience. Opportuni- 
ties exist for people prepared to move 
around after qualifying, 

The HND is science based with a 
managerial element, and is available in 
agriculture and allied subjects such as 
a g ri cultural engineering or agricultural 
marketing and business administration, 
among others. There is a National 
Diploma in agriculture, horticulture or 
forestry, and some shorter courses in 
horse management, fish forming, poultry 
husbandry, food technology, form secre- 
tarial work. The National Certificate 
leads to a variety of practical jobs with 
the chance to progress. 

The third type of entry is for young 
form workers who attend a college course 
part-time or belong to the Youth 
Training Scheme. There is also the 
ATB's apprenticeship and craft training 
scheme, involving day or block release. 

In addition, the ATB mounts numer- 
ous brief, on-site courses for experi enced 
people needing to update or improve 
their skills. Andrew Yates, wbo managed 
600 acres in Hertfordshire, reckons he 
fia^ falfpn some 1 5 such courses, the most 
recent in advanced spraying. 

"Ninety per cent of my work is 
practical, often coping with problems. 
Farming is changing all the time and

Management skills are

essential In farming today 


you've got to keep up to date,” says 
Andrew, who has foe NC and was 
formerly bead tractor driver. An evening 
course in management paved the way to 
his present job. 

Skilled staff and sophisticated machin- 
ery mean the 600 acres are fanned by 
three people; there are only 25 for the 
partnership's entire 5,500 acres. 

The pay and the long hours — 46 a 
week basic and 80 or more in foe 
summer — are disadvantages, but An- 
drew believes the open air life and that 
each day is different are compensations. 

"People doing other work may earn 
more but dislike their job, longing for 
Friday and dreading Monday'. Here, 
nearly everyone stays until they retire. I 
would recommend forming to anyone 
with a bias towards the land and the 1 
outdoor life."

— ▼ Oxford Regional 
Mental Health Review friba- 
®al and Another, Ex parte 
Secretary of State for the 
Home Department 
Regina ▼ Yorkshire Mental 
Heahfc Review Tribunal and 
Another, Ex parte Same 
Before Lord Justice Lawton, 
lord Justice Stephen Brown and 
Sir John Megaw 
[Judgment given April 231 

Where a mental health review 
tribunal had made an order for 
the discharge of a mental patient 
subject to satisfactory arrange* 
menis, the tribunal had no 
power to reconsider the decision 
to discharge the patient 
. The Court of Appeal so held 
m allowing two appeals by the 
Secretary of State for the Home 
Department against the judg- 
ments of Mr Justice Woolf and 
Mr Justice Kennedy, who re- 
fused applications for judicial 
review of a decision or respec- 
tively the Oxford review tri- 
bunal in relation to Mr Ernest 
Campbell, ami of the Yorkshire 
review tribunal in relation to 
Miss Mollie Lord. 

Mr John Laws for the sec- 
retary of state; Mr Oliver Thor- 
old for the applicants. 

LORD JUSTICE LAWTON 
said that both cases raised the 
same point concerning the pow- 
ers of the mental health review 
tribunal tinder section 73(2) of 
the Mental Health An 1983. 

In 1959, Mr Campbell then 
seed 17 was convicted of man- 
slaughter by reason of dimin- 
ished responsibility and 
sentenced to 10 years imprison- 
ment. He was released in 1963. 

In 1 969, be became aware that 
he was suffering from mental 
disorder and he was detained for 
treatment at Broadmoor Hos- 
pital pursuant to section 26 of 
the Mental Health Act 1939. 

While in hospital be con- 
fessed to minor offences of 
burglary and was brought before 
the crown court which made 
orders under sections 60 and 65 
of the 1959 Act, under which he 
had been under the care of the 
hospital ever since. 

He applied to the tribunal for 
a review of his case. The 
secretary of stale was. under the 
Mental Health Review Tri- 
bunals Rules (SI 1983 No 942). 
entitled to notice of the bearing 
as well as of any psychiatric 
report put forward in support of 
the application. 

The hearing took place on 
February 12, 1985 but, unfortu- 
nately. the tribunal gave no 
notice of those matters lo the 
secretary of state. The tribunal 
made a direction under section 
73 of the 1983 Act (which had 
replaced the 1959 Act) that the 
patient should be discharged, 
such discharge to be deferred for 
proposals to be prepared tomeet 
the conditions. 

Mr Justice Woolf held that 
there had been no final decision 
by the tribunal so as to entitle 
the secretary of state to apply for 
judicial review. 

In refusing the application for 
judicial review, be said that the 
failure to give the relevant 
notices to the secretary of state 
was an irregularity but the 


tribunal could reconsider their 
decision in the light of 
representations by the secretary 
or state. 

In 1975, Miss Lord, when a 
patient at a Wakefield hospital, 
set fire to the premises and was 
convicted by the crown court of 
arson and was similarly de- 
tained under orders made under 
sections 60 and 65 of the 1939 
Act. 

On her application for dis- 
charge, the tribunal on April 1, 
1915 directed that she be con- 
ditionally discharged but de- 
ferred the direction pursuant to 
section 73(7) of the 1983 Act 
pending satisfactory arrange- 
ments therefor, and further 
directed that in the event of such 
arrangements not being made 
within six months the tribunal 
would reconvene to reconsider 
the direction for conditional 
discharge: 

Mr Justice Kennedy, too, 
refused the secretary of stare's 
application for judicial review. 

The question was whether 
either tribunal made a decision 
which was subject to reconsider- 
ation. 

Under the 1959 Act the 
secretary of state was entrusted 
with the derision as to whethera 
patient should be released from 
hospital. The 1983 Act en- 
trusted the derision to the 
tribunal but the 1983 Rules 
envisaged that the secretary of 
state, as guardian of the public 
interest, should be entitled to 
make representations to the 
tribunal before they reached 
their decision. 

The tribunal's duty to order 
conditional discharge under sec- 
tion 73(2) was mandatory and in 
performing that duty the tri- 
bunal were only concerned with 
the criteria laid down in section 
72(1 XbXi)and (n) of the Act and 
nothing outside those pro- 
visions. 

In Mr Campbell's case, the 
tribunal directed a discharge 
and the only outstanding matter 
concerned the arrangements to 
be made in relation to the 
discharge. There was no power 
wha lever to go back on the 
decision to discharge. If no 
satisfactory arrangements were 
made then the conditional dis- 
charge lapsed. 

Therefore Mr Justice Woolf 
misdirected himself in conclud- 
ing that the tribunal had power 
to reconsider their decision. 

The failure to give the re- 
quired notices to the secretary of 
state was not an irregularity 
which could be remedied under 
the 1983 Rules, once the tri- 
bunal had made their decision. 
It was a classic case of a failure 
of natural justice and the court 
had to order judicial review. 

The tribunal as a matter of 
practice should inquire in such 
cases whether the secretary of 
state had been informed of the 
relevant matters. 

Mr Justice Kennedy also mis- 
directed himself in holding that 
the tribunal could .reconsider 
their decision. Accordingly the 
two appeals should be allowed. 

Lord Justice Stephen Brown 
and Sir John Megaw delivered 
concurring judgments.

Alexander & Partners, Wtiles- 
den; Irwin Mitchell, Sheffield. 


Limit to powers of 
review tribunals 


Grant v Mental Health Re- 
view Tribunal 

Regina v . Mersey Mental 
Health Review Tribunal, Ex 
parte O'Hara 
Before Mr Justice McNeil 
[Judgment given April 23] 

The Mental Health Act 1983 
did -not expressly or by implica- 
tion, empower a tribunal deal- 
ing with the case of a restricted 
patient, which was specifically 
dealt with in section 73, to 
exercise powers given to it. by 
section ' 72 which apptied to 
unrestricted patients, except 
where those provisions of that 
section were expressly incor- 
porated into section 73. 

Mr Justice McNeil so held in 
the Queen's Bench Division, 


that (and ex hypothea declined 
to direct that the patient be 
discharged), that they might “(a) 
with a view to facilitating his 
discharge on a future date 
recommend that be be granted 
leave of absence or transferred 
to another hospital or into 
guardianship and (b) further 
consider his case in the event of! 
any such recommendation not 
being complied with”. 

It was to be observed that, 
save in so far as section 72(3) 
itself included a limited form of ! 
conditional discharge, there was 
no provision for conditional 
discharge under section 72 as 
there was expressly in section 
73. where the distinction was 
drawn between “absolute" and 
“conditional'' discharge. And 


dismissing an appeal by way of there was no provision in sec- 
case stated, brought by MeJvyn non . echoing or similar to 
Roy Grant, and an application section 72(3). 
for judicial review by James 
Frederick O'Hara, who were 
both restricted patients whose 
cases fell under section 73. 

In the case of Grant, the 
tribunal indicated that it would 
recommend the transfer from 


In his Lordship's view, that 
plainly indicated the intention 
of Parliament to repose wider 
powers on a tribunal dealing 
with an unrestricted patient and 
to limit the power of a tribunal 

in directiiu the conditional

considered it had the power to by enacting specific powers in 


do so. In the case of O’Hara the 
medical officer did recommend 
a transfer. , .

apply to restricted patients, did

FOOTBALL IPSWICH PASS ON THEIR FEARS TO OXFORD AS LIVERPOOL AND WEST HAM PUT PRESSURE ON EVERTON 


Butcher leaves 
Oxford facing 
an unpalatable 
change of diet 




By Clive White 


Ipswich Town 3 

Oxford Utd 2 


Oxford United had handled 
the change in diet without fiiss 
— from milk and honey to 
bread and butter all in the 
same week. But the bitter pills 
that Terry Holbrook, the Wol- 
verhampton referee, asked 
them to swallow could be 
responsible for putting them 
on something even less nutri- 
tious in the second division 
next season. 

A man who had remained 
emotionally sober at the sight 
of his team scoring three 
glorious match-winning goals 
before 90,000 spectators at 
Wembley was unlikely to be 
moved by seeing them con- 
cede two illegitimate goals in a 
quiet corner of East Anglia. 
But inwardly Ipswich's goals 
were sufficiently provocative 
to make Maurice Evans, 
Oxford's reluctant leader, re- 
mark: "And you wonder why I 
don't want lo be a manager." 

One would wonder why, 
after Saturday's experience, he 
prefers to be a scout, the 
position that he finds more 
emotionally rewarding. Of the 
3,000-odd boys he bas 
watched over the years at 
Sunday trials he has only ever 
signed one on professional 
forms — Atkins for Shrews- 
bury Town. That same Atkins 
1 1 years later repaid that faith 
by scoring the goal for Ipswich 
Town in the 92nd minute that 
may banish Evans and his 
team back to whence they 
came last season. 

But Evans knows that, 
should it happen, the man 
most responsible for it (Mr 
Holbrook apart) was Butcher, 
the Ipswich centre half back- 
bone, heartbeat and just about 
every other influential part of 
Ipswich Town Football Cub. 
“He was the difference be- 
tween the two sides," Evans 
said. If ever a player was 
bigger than the dub in the 
acceptable sense it is the 6ft 
4 in Butcher. Long after the 
departure of the Mariners and 
Muhrens, and even his side- 
kick, Osman, the gentle giant 
remains true to the cause of 


Ipswich, encouraging and 
cursing youngsters, most of 
whom would still have been 
playing' in the Football Com- 
bination bad that exodus of 
talent never taken place. 

Nowadays Butcher has lo 
leadby example at both ends 
of the field. It was real blood 
and guts stuff against Oxford. 
Having fired Ipswich ahead 
himself with the least likely 
part of his anatomy, his right 
foot, be bad to leave the field 
with blood pouring from a 
deep cut in his forehead. He 
was already playing on with a 
cut by his right eye that would 
have forced most heavyweight 
boxers to retire. 

From the corner Butcher 
had conceded in his damaging 
clash of heads with Hebberd, 
Oxford equalized through a 
volley by Phillips, punched 
towards him by Cooper in a 
position that would have been 
commanded by Butcher. Our 
hero returned five minutes 
later with his head heavily 
bandaged to the left back 
position and lo applause that 
ieft him in no doubt of his 
position in Suffolk hearts. He 
will bear this in mind, I am 
sure, when the lucrative offers 
come in again this summer for 
this English oak. 

The fear of relegation, and 
therefore losing Butcher, has 
been momentarily dispelled 
and passed on to Oxford, an 
undeserving encumbrance. To 
cries of ‘Ole’ which, under- 
scored their controlled posses- 
sion football. Oxford had taken 
the lead through the matador 
himself, Aldridge. They lost it 
when Wilson charged into 
Judge, their goalkeeper, flat- 
tening him, leaving Dozzell 
free 10 score. And suddenly all 
three points were gone when 
Dozzell, backing into Shotton, 
earned a free kick from which 
Atkins repaid Evans so 
unkindly.

Villa make 


sure of 
survival 

By Vince Wright 

Aston Villa's first division 
place is secure for another 
season. They made certain of 
safety by beating Chelsea 3-1 in 
an ill-tempered encounter at 
Villa Park on Saturday. 

Villa's manager, Graham 
Turner, whose position has been 
under threat, must be pleased by 
the recent response from his 
players. Their resolve was lested 
in the second half when Chelsea 
equalized, but Villa refused to 
buckle and won the match with 
two goals in the final six 
minutes. 

While VQIa breathe a sigh of 
relief, Leicester City move 
nearer the urination trap door. 
Leicester's defence, who are 
conceding goals at an alarming 
rate, sprang another leak at Old 
TrafTord. where Manchester 
United finished 4-0 winners. 
Leicester have a match in hand 
over the ride immediately above 
them. Coventry City, but - can 
hardly relish their next game — 
at home to Liverpool on 
Wednesday.

five-goal bonus

Liverpool 5 

Birmingham City 0 


When Kenny Dalglish was 
asked on Saturday whether he 
thought Liverpool's goal ' dif- 
ference was now worth an extra 
point iii the championship race, 
be replied in bis typical laconic 
manner that he would rather 
have tiie point. What be would 
like still more, no doubt, is 10 be 
finishing the season with an- 
other game against Birmingham 
City. 

Even before Birmingham's 
home defeat by Southampton 
seven days earlier had consigned 
them to the second division, this 
match at Anfidd raised the 
question not so much of who 
would win but by how many. 
Conservative estimates would 
have been for a two-goal Liver- 
pool victory and Dalglish's team 
would have had to settle for that 
had they not found an un- 
expected marksman in 
Gillespie. 

Having scored only once for 
Liverpool and not at all this 
season, Gillespie collected three 
goals, desphe occupying a role 
as central defender. The only 
other surprise was that Liver- 
pool did not score more, be- 


Hearts most wait 

By Hugh Taylor 

A spectacular goal quelled the next Saturday at Dens Paris, 
nervousness shown by Heart of which is expected to house its 
Midlothian against Clydebank biggest crowd for years as an 
on Saturday and it pushed the army of Edinburgh supporters 
league leaders to within a.pbint travel to Dundee to encourage 
of their first championship win their, team over the final hurdle, 
for 26 years. 

“We looked edgy for' just 
about the first time titis season," 
said their manager, Alex Mac^ 

Donald, “and there was a lot of 
tension on the field." The goal 
splendidly struck by Mackay 
after 34 minutes gave Hears a 


above Portsmouth into second once they had put a point 

place after defeating Bfackbarn beyond their vfe tors* reach with 
Rovers 3-0, will almost certainly • - - 

go up iTtire^ beat Fulham at 


Hearn wUl-find Dundee in more 
combative mood at home than 
they were at Parkhead because 
their opponents need two points 
to give- them a glimmer of hope 
of finding a place in next 
season’s UEFA Cup. 

. Dundee are equal on points 
1-0 victory over a stubborn . with Rangers, who played with 
Clydebank ride and stretched more resolution and skill to earn 


iheir unbeaten run to 31 
matches. 

Celtic's chance of snatching 
the title appears to. have van- 
ished even though they beat 
Dundee 2-0 with goals from 
McClaire and Johnston. But 


a 1-1 draw with Aberdeen at 
Pittodrie to make themselves 
favourites for the coveted place 
in Europe. 

The season is also ending 
disappointingly for Dundee 
United. They lost 2-1 at home to 


they were unconvincing against St Mirren, who gave their oppo- 
opponents who played for most nents a lesson in goal scoring, 
of the game with 10 players. Gallagher was the marksman on 
The climax to Hearts’ both occasions and Radford 
astonishing season will come scored for United. 


Selburst Park tomorrow , and 
Wimbledon are strongly fancied 
to join them. Fashano, an 
inspired signing from Mill wall, 
scored twice in their 3- 1 victory 
over Hull City at Plough Lane. 

Portsmouth, who missed 
promotion on goal difference 
last season, may fail by a bigger 
margin this time. Thqy could do 
no better than bold Sheffield 
United to a goalless draw and 
have only one game left 

However. Portsmouth’s prob- 
lems are slight compared with 
those of Sunderland who appear- 
to be fighting a losing battle 
against relegation. A 3-1. defeat 
at Brighton deepened the crisis, 
at RokerPark. 

A victory against Cardiff City 
could not prevent Wotverr 
hamptou Wanderers sliding 
from the first division to the 
fourth in successive seasons. 
Cardiff are also relegated. 

At the top of the third 
division Derby County continue 
to falter while Wigan Athletic 
and P lym ou th Argyle prosper. 

Part Vale clinched promotion 
from the fourth -division by 
winning 2-1 at Torquay -United. 


two goals in the first four 
minutes of the second half to 
lead 3-0, Birmingham seemed to 
be longing for the less exacting 
spaces of the second division. 

Liverpool, it can reasonably 
be assumed, will have to win 
both their remaining games, at 
Leicester Gty, where their for- 


mer stalwart. Cordon Milne, is 
trying to manage bis team away 
from relegation, and Chelsea, if 
they are to claim the title 

Since they have won their last 
five' League games, scoring 1-S 
goals ana conceding' one, they 
clearly have form on their ride. 
Better than that, they have 
Molby and Johnston who. with 
such belligerence and. artistry as 
they demonstrated here, might 
have made even Birmingham 
look good had. they been wear- 
ing blue shirts instead of red. 
How Denmark must hope, for 
the sake - of their World Cup 
chances, that the giant Molby 
does- not find his 14 stones too ' 
heavy a load 10 carry around in 
the heat of Mexico. 

Molby H was who posed most 
of the first-half problems for. 
Birmingham with three shots 
which went narrowly wide. And 
Johnston it was who evaded a 
lunging tackle by Hagan in the 
25th minute and crossed for 
Whelan's shot to be touched in 
by Rush. 

Gillespie's header, for which 
he rose above Clarke to meet 
Johnston's comer, was the best 
of his goals, and Molby made it 
34) from a penalty after Roberts 
had handled. Gillespie com- 
bined with Rush to score the 
fourth and when Dicks' reck- 
lessly tripped Rush in the' area 
the former Coventry City player 
was offered the penalty, un- 
hesitatingly beating Seaman for 
his third goal. .

Whatever the outcome to this 
season’s League championship 
West Ham have finally Jtroved 
that they -art no longer m tne 
business of flattering to deceive. 
With only -a week of-tbe season 
left they remain in contention 
for the tide, an achievement in 
itself for a club who in the pa» 
have usually faded from the 
picture long before now. 

In many ways the perfor- 
mance: West Ham gave oti 
-Saturday typified the Fun- 
damental change which - Bas 
come over them in recent 
. months, for while they fell a long 
way short of the fluency for 
which they are renowned they 
maintained a high level of 

commitment against a team 
who were themselves hardly any 
' less eager for the points. 

- After the heights of brilliance 

West Ham had' reached in 
beating Newcastle 8-1 last week 
it was- perhaps not surprising 
that their football bad a slightly 
incoherent, bung-over quality. 
Now they must make sure they 
keep a clear head for their- 
remaining four games, starting 
with tonight's visit to Upton 
Park of Manchester City and 
ending a week today with Thor- 
own trip to Everton. -It could be' 
a storming climax to : the 
championship — provided 
Liverpool do not steal the 
thunder first * _ 

As for Coventry, the cloud of 
the second division is growing 
blacker by the week. Despite 
this, they played in a positive 
frame ofmind and were unlucky 
not to come away with a point 
They bad created much the 
better openings when, after an 
hour. West Bam exploited a 
momentary lapse in concentra- 
tion to take the lead. Ward's 

3 nick throw-in (fid the da ma g e , 
(lowing McAvennie to take the 
ball deep into the Coveany area. 
A melee ensued and when the 
ball emerged there was Cottee to 
turn ft into the net 
The watching Bobby Robson 
must have been- impressed with 
the enthusiasm and speed with 
which Cotiee scored bis 24th 
goal of the season, toil whether 
he will force his way into the 
World -Cup squad, to be an- 
nounced today, remains 
doubtfhL 

Parices. the West Ham-goal- 
keeper, may also be wondering 
whether there is room for him 
on the trip to Mexico now that 
Bailey is injured. He was his 
usual impeccable self at his best 
in the dosing stages when Brazil 
had a dear ran at goal only for 
. Partes, perfectly positioned, to 
guide him away from the danger

An isolated cause for celebration

All -is not .despondency in the 
West Midlands. The area does 
have orte team worth crowing 
about. Halesowen, who at Wem- 
bley on Saturday retained the 
FA Vase, flattered though, they 
were-by their victory margin. 

Before a record crowd for the' 
final of 18,340, swollen no 
doubt by supporters borrowed 
from West Bromwich Albion, 
Wolverhampton Wanderers 
and Birmingham City, tired of 
watching their local league dubs 
in their relegation throes, 
Halesowen produced one cause 


for celebration. It wffl be an- 
other if the Southern League 
decide at the third time of asking 
to admit the West Midland 
League leaders. 

Now Halesowen's case for 
admission is overwhelming, 
even if Saturday's was far from 
being one of their best displays, 
according to their manager, 
Paddy Page. Ultimately they 
were indebted to the alertness of 
their goalkeeper, Alan 
Pemberton, whose save midway 
through the second half to deny 
Pierre, a spectacular diving 
beaded goal was the turning 
point. 

Halesowen, lucky to be ahead 
in the 35th minute when Moss 
beaded passed MacKenrie, con- 


firmed their superiority with 
•two scrappy goals in four 
minutes-They came from Lee 
Joinson , the scorer of two goals 
in last year's fired triumph, and 
Moss. “We weren’t embar- 
rassed, but we just didn’t get any 
"of the breaks, Gordon Bartlett, 
Southall's manager said. Nor 
did they. The VauxhaU-Opd 
second division club had the 
best player on ihe field in Rowe, 
but there was to be no reward for 
his valiant pursuit of every lost 
cause.

Chance for 
Armada 
to win more 
admirers 


From an Irish pointer view, 

the most significant happening r&fLs «$**£(-.'• *£*1* 1 

regarding to the English cS 
over the weekend may not have Ji ’’ ■ '■• •"■ - . 

been the surprise booking of *■***■?> ■ 

Lesier^ggou for Tate . Gallery ;>?«■£ 

V m M^^nragh success of '-&X 

Imperial Falcon, but .rather the **&$*. &B 



narrow defeat of Ramich John 
at Sandown. • 

In getting within a head and a 
neck of Supreme Leader and 
Iroko,- Ramich -John 
emphasised the very solid 2,000 
Guineas chance of Toca Ma- 
dera. Ramich John has y*n 
sharing the gallops with Toca 
Madera and the trainer Liam 
Browne was emphatic that his 
Guineas challenger was very 
substantially superior to the 
older horse. 

There were mixed feelings 
among onlookers as Pat Eddery 
brought Imperial Falcon home 
116 lengths ahead of the filly 
Welsh Fantasy over the ten 
furlongs of the Ballysax Race. 

Halfway up the straight Im- 
perial Falcon looked to be 
galloping over his rivals and set 
to go away and win by a wide 
margin. For a few strides when 
Welsh Fantasy came at him, 
Eddery looked to be in trouble, 
but; Imperial Falcon, without 
being put under severe pressure, 
quickened away. 

“He will be much more 
effective. when the ground dries 
up", was the opinion of Vincent 
O'Brien, who confirmed that 
Sheikh Mohammed's Northern 
Dancer colt would have his final 
pre-Epsom preparatory race in 
the Makioum sponsored 
Derrmstown Stud Derby trial at 
Leopardstown. 

Irish bookmakers pushed Im- 
perial Falcon out to 12-1 in the 
aftermath of the Curragh event, 
but a more impressed 
Ladbrokes representative Mike 
Dillon trimmed him a further 
point to 9-1. 

Imperial Falcon proved to be 
the middle leg of a -treble for Pat 
Eddery. He' nad an 'armchair 
ride on the newcomer Wise 
Counsellor in the Warren three- 
year-old maiden. 

Eddery had however, to work 
a good deal harder, to force 
Kemago up to catch Lady Loire 
in the Mount Coote Stud Athasi 
Fillies' Stakes.

POINT-TO-POINT 

Highland Blaze 
and Greenall 
show the way 

By Brian Beel 

Highland Blaze stayed on too 
strongly for Paddy’s Peril in a 
competitive race for the Lady 
Dudley Cup for which ten 
started at the Worcestershire 
point-to-point on Saturday. 

It was soon apparent that 
Tanker was having an off day 
and with five fences to jump 
Paddy’s Peril poached a six- 
length lead from Peter GreenalL 
on Highland Blaze. 

Perhaps, if his rider, John 
Deutsch. had kicked for home 
and widened the gap, instead of 
being content with this margin, 
the result would have been 
different As it was Greenall 
worked bard on Highland Blaze 
and slowly narrowed the gap to 

g t in front just before the last 
nee and extend his lead to 
three lengths at the post 
This was Greenairs second 
win of the day - he had been 
successful on Sandicliffe Boy in 
the adjacent - so his total was 
increased to 14, now only one 
behind Mike Felton who had 
another blank day.

Boldness in 
another 
success for 
France 

By Rex Bellamy 
Tennis Correspondent 
French players have made a 
good start in the Lawn Tennis 
Association’s five-week spring 
circuit- Thierry Pham, who» 
unexpected surname comes 
fromTviemamcse . father- 
the mert'5 smgles id .the Hr* 1 
tournament at Hampstea^ 

Pascale Etchemendy wonihe 

women's stnglw in the second 
tournament, beating Helena 
Olsson. of Sweden; b - v ^ 7 * 5 al - 
Queen’s Oub on Sawnday. 

Miss Eichemendy. aged l^ts 
5ft 10in talL She was born near 
Biarritz, which is almost tnsepa^ 
table from Bayonne, fee itoj 
that gave its name to. Uje 
bayonet. Gascony was also lb? 
birthplace of a famous sword* 
man. tTAnagnan. Wnh such 
traditions to inspire her it is 
hardly surprising that Miss-. 
Etchemendy plays a boW game^ 
She hits hard and deep, is 
particularly effective on ibe 
forehand, and can improvise a 
left-handed return on her usu- 
ally two-fisted backhand. 

Miss Etchemendy. who was 
on target consistently enough to 
overpower the smart but slow 
Miss Olsson. who is too hefty to. 
reach the standard her court-' 
craft suggests, should be within 
reach. Miss Olsson comes from 
Uppsala, between the Baltic and 
the Gulf of Bothnia, and is 
among 16 Swedish women spliL 
into three categories under a 
development scheme sponsored 
by Volvo. . '■ 

There was no men s final 
because John Frawley's shoul- 
der trouble was so bad that he. 
decided to withdraw from the 
circuit and go home to Queens- 
land. That .gave Denys 
Maasdorp, of South Africa, the 
fust prize. The most successful 
men in the first two weeks have 
been Maasdorp, Pham, Frawley. 
Alfonso Gonzalez (a Mexican 
who lives in Antwerp) and three 
British players, Andrew Castle, 
Stephen Botfield and Mike 
Walker. The leading women 
have been Miss Etchemendy. 
Catrin Jexell and Miss Olsson 
(both Swedes). Jane Wood (Brit- 
ain) and Digna Ketelaar 
(Netherlands). 

The remaining tournaments 
will be at Sutton (beginning 
tomorrow). Bournemouth and 
Lee-on-Solent The circuit is 
costing the LTA about ££0.000. 
In addition British Home Stores 
put £8.000 into the Hampstead 
event. Bournemouth. Corpora- 
tion has allocated £2.000 to iis 
local tournament, and there is 
further support from Dewhursts 
(butchers) and Dexters (soft 
drinks). 

In short, the circuit inaugu- 
rated last year, is beginning to 
attract t he sponsorship -such an 
expensive venture needs. The 
point of it is to provide rising 
players with experience .. and

Milovsorov in 
a heartening 
run for Tipton 

By Pat Botcher 
Athletics Correspondent - 

Tony Milovsorov, the son ofa 
Soviet wartime emigre, had one 
of the best runs of a steadily 
improving athletics career on 
Saturday. He not only ran the 
fastest long leg of the day in the 
National 12-stage road relay in 
Sutton Park. Birmingham, 
becoming one of the few to dip 
under 25 minutes - which he 
did by one second — for the lap 
of five miles 706 yards, but his 
effort on the eleventh stage also 
gave Tipton Hamers the de- 
cisive push which took them 
away from their perennial Mid- 
lands rivals. Birchfield. Tipton's 
victory was their third in 
successionand for the second 
year running Birchfield and 
Gateshead were second and 
third respectively. 

The best weather since 1980 
helped produce a spate of fast 
limes, one of which was the 25 
min lb see for a "very pleased” 
Dave Moorcroft. who took his 
Coventry club from 23rd ' tb 
eighth oh the fifth stage. But that 
was still some way off 
Moorcroft's lap record of 24mm 
27sec. 

Including his excursions in 
the Midlands 12-stage relay at 
the same venue. Milovsorov has 
a collective time over the last 
five years for his six best short, 
legs and six besr long legs (the 
composition of the relay) of 3hr 
57min 28see. which is better 
than Bristol’s race record of 4hr 
Omin 37see set six years ago. It 
has all been achieved since his 
worst long lap ever, 27m in in 
1 97$. which came one ' week 
after an exploratory heart opera*! 
tion. following which doctors 
told him to stop running or risk 
sudden death.

<UGBY UNION: BATH AND CARDIFF BASK IN SUNSHINE AT TWICKENHAM AND CARDIFF 

squeeze life out of Wasps 



By David Hands 
Rugby Correspondent 


Bath. 

Wasps, 


25 

17 


. boy David, clad in the 
bwdc of Wasps, cast a mighty 
pebble at Goliath at Twicken- 
ham on Saturday. There the 
biblical analogy ends because 
the giant rose to his feet once 
more and, with ponderous 
tmad, -squeezed- the life out of 
the North -London challengers 
to ensure the retention or die 
John Player Special Cup far 
the third successive year. 

Even When Wasps had 
soared into a 13-0 lead after 25 
minutes the thought never 
occurred that Bath had not the 
capacity to come back. They 
dm so, but not at their best (for 
which Wasps must take sub- 
stantial creditX retying on 
mutual . self confidence, the 
tech nical and physical 
strength of their fbnrards for 
victory by three goals, a try 
and a penalty goal to a goal, 
two tries and a penalty. 

- Bath's treble, matching 
Leicester’s between 1979 and 
1981, must receive due credit 
before Wasps's glorious fail- 
ure. It is a quite outstanding 
achievement which has in- 
volved — or so it seemed on 
Saturday — most of the city. 
The press box shook its collec- 
tive bead at the sight of Bath's 
international back division so 
completely unemployed, but 
that was. to lose sight of Bath’s 
aims and ambitions. 

Richard Card us, the Wasps 
captain, was nearer the mark 
when he said: “They played 
their game better than we 
played ours." But what a game 
Wasps produced. They took 
everything fete could offer — 
the loss of five players in the 
weeks before the cup final: of a 
sixth, Kendall, the corner- 
stone of their pack on the 
morning of the game with 
meajles (he may also have a 
strained calf muscle); and 
finally of Bates, their scrum 
half, with a broken forearm 34 
minutes into the game. 

His replacement, the 21- 
year-old Balcombe, was mak- 
ing his first appearance in the 
senior! side, but it was another 
Harrovian who caught the eye: 
England's selectors should 
make sure that Gareth Rees 


takes up the qualification an 
English mother gives him 
before that of his Welsh father 
or Canadian birthplace. His 
vision for the game makes 
him an outstanding prospect 
and he will still be only 23 
when the projected 1991 
world tournament comes 
along. 

One of the best things in the 
final was Rees’s long pass m 
deep defence to Stringer and if 
Bailey had not had to reach 
behind him for the pass he 
might have got round Martin 
with a clear field ahead. Rees 
defended well, his kicking is 
improving and his passing was 
critical in the two splendid 
tries scored by Wasps within 
three minutes of each other, 
the second, by Pellow which 
began in Wasps 22 and in- 
volved timing, speed and 
perception, will not be im- 
proved upon in any cup game. 

The Wasps back row also 
played superbly and if Pegler, 
another West Countryman, is 
picked out Rigby and Rose 
were not far behind But Bath, 
digging deep into their re- 
serves of character, hauled 
themselves out of a substan- 
tial hole; at 13-7 down at the 
interval they were back in the 
match and five minutes later 
they were level. 

They did not get the antici- 
pated lineout dominance, but 
they spread Wasps’s first 
scrum over the landscape and 
the discipline of their loose 
play is illustrated by the award 
of only three penalties to 
Wasps, while eight went 
Bath's way, though three of 
them were for collapsed 
scrams. 

Yet the Wasps front row 
survived, thanks in no small 
way to the former 21-year-old 
England Colt. Holmes, at 
loose head and their resur- 
gence may account for the 
outburst of punching in the 
second half, which led to 
warnings for Redman and 
Simmons and lectures from 
the captains to their respective 
teams. The referee said 
afterwards: 44 ! told the captains 
that if they could not control 
their men then they could go 
and we would have two 
captains who could I thought 
that when they told their 
players it would reduce the 
heat because nobody would

want to be responsible for 
having his captain dismissed 
It worked" 

With Barnes on the field 
with a broken toe and Palmer 
with a painful groin strain, 
Bath were in no doubt about 
the game they had to play. It 
was nine-man rugby, which 
exposed the chinks in Wasps's 
otherwise well-ordered ar- 
mour, Hill nagging away be- 
hind his forwards, of whom 
Simpson and Morrison were 
quite outstanding. The ball 
went down their line in the 
first five minutes and the last, 
otherwise it stayed light as a 
drum. 

Swift, who played for Swan- 
sea in two losing Welsh cup 
finals, crossed from a well 


rehearsed blind ride move and 
Trick, after three failures by 
Palmer, took over the place 
kicking as to ihe manner bom 
(he may have thought it was 
the only way to get his hands 
on the bail). SpurrelL, from a 5- 
metre scrum. Hill from a 
marvellous rolling maul 
which covered 40 metres, and 
Simpson, again from a scrum, 
scored the tries which carried 
Bath away, leaving Wasps to 
apply the final sting through 
Balcombe. 

Though the crowd of some 
23,000 was a long way short of 
the record cup final atten- 
dance of three years ago. this 
game was second only in 
calibre to the 1983 Bnstol- 


Leicester match. Its impor- 
tance in terms of the 
development of a Wasps team 
of great potential is hard to 
overestimate but Bath, like no 
other team in England, win 
when it matters.

How the Bostick 
hands lost grip 


' ^T don't know which one was 

the nker or the more surprising. 

The: sun had got his hat on for 
the first time in about 18 
tombs, which was joy eaosgh. 
batto make things better and yet 
more improbable, I watched a 
rugby match in which gergeoas, 
beate-tifting tries were sawed at 
immense pace by men with 360 
degree vision. Bostick hands and 
soaring nrftgintfnii- 

And this was not even ragby 
got op in its party gear of sevens, 
this was the John Player Cop 
final, the new, frightfully vulgar 
and splendidly enjoyable climax 
of die dab rugby season. Bath, 
twice the winnars, were the 
mighty favonrites: Bath, of all 
places. Yon expected London to 
be quailing under an invasion of 
creaky colonels and decayed 
gentlewomen, all ap for the day 
from their Nash temces, madly 
braadishing antimacassars hi 
team colours and pelting the 
referee with stale rock bans 
pnrioined from the Pomp Room. 

It was Wasps who were the 
nkore piquant. Bath favoured 
rugby of the glacier variety; slow 
bat crashing. Their rambling, 
grumbling pack was knocked 
sideways by 13 points all in a 
burst, all the result of wisphUy 
ila«hhig anti-glacial running and 
handling. 

" It was not to last. In the end 
the Bath pack started ro lling 
forward. This was net a swift 
process, but it was desperately 
sore. With an immensely devel- 
oped taste for physical 
confrontation, and none at all [for 
the things of the imag i n ati on , 
the Bath pack took on two teams

at once and won. They made sure 
that the Wasps never touched 
the hall and, with awesome 
dedication, they fooght off every 
attempt by tbeir own 
threequarters to fay hands on 
the damn thing as welL 
They rolled on the ball, they 
pushed it, they trampled an it, 
they kicked it, they spat on it, 
they Mt It Occasionally, sane- 
one forgot himself so for as to 
pick it up: then everyone pushed, 
trampled, kicked and otherwise 
propelled h im up the field. Every 
now and then someone broke 
into a trot, hot this was to co ur t 
social ostracism. 

Naturally, this aO made for a 
cracking game of football, with 
Wasps desperately trying to 
repel the forces of darkness that 
gnutuaDy overwhelmed them. It 
was a trifie disappointing to see 
the forces of die imagina fen go 
down, bat this is the way of 
things, and one gets osed to it 
For of coarse, Bath were 
thoroughly appropriate winners. 
The fleet-footed, the dashing 
and the skilled were brooght 
down by a bunch of slow, fot, 
sedentary fellows who weren’t 
much good at throwing the ball 
or catching it, let alone anything 
so exhatsting as running with ft. 
If yon are going to have an event 
sponsored by a cigarette com- 
pany, yon couldn't imagine more 
appropriate winners.

And, at last, after months of 
dreary experience, did not the 
sun shine? Was it not after all 
the first day of blue skies that 
could property be called ihe 
spring? And in tune with these 
delights, did not Cardiff play 
like a dream? They did and they 
all came together on a cup final 
day that worthy of the name. 
After a series of shabbily dis- 
appointing finals this one flour- 
ished spectacularly. 

On this occasion Newport 
may not have played as they 
themselves would nave wished, 
the bounce and the decision 
often going against them, bui, 
whatever ine excuses, they were, 
if they cared to admit, up against 
a learn who suddenly and 
surprisingly recaptured Lhe kind 
of style which beat Bath on New 
Year's day, but which had 
eluded them thereafter. 
Cardiff's second half may noi 
have been as sharp as their first, 
but they were on song and it was 
their day to succeed brilliantly 
to defeat their old rivals by three 
goals, a uy and two penalties to 
three goals and a penalty. 

Apart from the occasional 
flurry by Collins and Powell and 
the brilliant individualism of 
Turner, who had a marvellous 
game. Newport were not al- 


lowed to settle down to' their 
forward rhythm. Cardiff with 
Scott playing a maturely mea- 
sured game, were confidently in 
charge. Tactically, they stole the 
show. Newport wanted to play it 
dose. Cardiff beforehand ap- 
peared to want to do the same 
but, from the kickoff ' they 
spread the ball about to get-away 
from Newport's forward grip. 
They succeeded. Newport reeled 
backwards at the onslaught in 
the first half. Roberts had an 
immense game, so did Golding. 
And Davies, against his most 
feared opponent, Powell, was, 
despite hitting the upright 
successively with dropped goal, 
penalty and conversion at- 
tempts, was in immaculate 
form. O’Brien had the game of 
his life. Ring and Donovan ran 
and probed, Hadley got three 
tries. Newport, although they 
ended with a flourish, tailed to 
cope with Cardiff s options. 

After attacking Newport's line 
in the fourth minute, following 
charges by Roberts and O’Brien. 
Davies, with a touch of genius, 
noticing the flat blanket defence, 
chipped the ball wide to his 
open side wing for Hadley to 
collect the kindest of bounces 
for the first try. Davies con- 
verted this, as well as kicking 
another penalty. Although New- 
port replied when Pin collected 
his own upwind-under in a 
confused Cardiff defence to 
score a try, which Turner con-

Calculating winners 


■The end of the rugby season 
xrrives accompanied by a fever- 
ish rush for electronic cal- 
culators as the various merit 
tables reach their climax (Bryan 
Stiles writes). It is a delight for 
the statistically-minded rugby 
follower, but a positive pain to 
those who thought success was 
limply a matter of winning 
nore .matches than rhe 

Jr ?he new John Smith's Merit 
rable B leaders are Orel! after 
their 10-3 away victory over 
on Saturday, but these 
two dubs will have to wait until 
next Saturday after the northern 


side play Coventry in another 
top of the table encounter to 
discover which two of the three 
of them will secure promotion 
to table A. 

There is another finely bal- 
anced situations the bean of 
the country, where it was 
thought by some statisticians 
that Leicester had already won 
the Midlands merit table. Un- 
fortunately for them their great 
rivals. Moseley, have a re- 
arranged merit table game with 
Nuneaton on Wednesday and 
that will decide which club takes 
the laurels. 


Tbe final of the Lancashire 
Cup at Fylde yesterday ended in 
a 9-9 draw with Vale of Lune 
scoring two dropped goals and a 
penalty to Preston 
Grasshoppers’ convened pen- 
alty try and penalty (Michael 
Stevenson writes). 

Tbe power of both packs 
tended to cancel each out in a 
game played at a frantic pace, 
which was a credit to both 
teams, but Vale finished the 
stronger and looked as if they 
would snatch victory. They led 
after 20 minutes through a 
dropped goal by Glover and 
immediately a penalty by 
Higgin stretched their lead, but 
jus* before half-time Ralston 
was caught offside and obstruct- 
ing Preston, tbe Grasshoppers' 


left wing. A penalty try was 
awarded and Kerry converted, 
and the same player added a 
penalty when Grasshoppers 
were penalized for tackling a 
man without the ball 
There was some exhilarating 
play in the second half, but the 
only points came from a second 
dropped goal for Vale, kicked by 
Kirby.

thrust for Cardiff allowed 

• O'Brien to run in for a try, with 
Davies again adding the extra

Davies and Tinner exchanged 
penalties in the second half 
before Cardiff produced 
marvellous manoeuvre in mid- 
field by. Ring. Donovan and 
Rayer which was so dean cut 
that Hadley was able to canter 
easily over from 30 metres. The 
uy was convened by Davies. 
Appropriately for Newport both 
their tries were scored by the 
two men who had contributed 
so much to their game. Turner 
scored a scintillating individual 
try, while Collins charged over 
from a short penalty dose to 
Cardiff's line. These were con- 
verted by Turner.

Hampshire 
feel the 
presence 
of Rice 

By Ivo Tennant 

TRENT BRIDGE: Nottingham- 
shirk, with aU their second 
innings wickets in hand, are 33 
runs ahead of Hampshire. . 

In conditions that favoured 
all bowlers other than those of 
extreme pace, Hampshire found 
runs hard to come by for much 
of the day. Boosted ultimately 
by an unbroken stand of 67 
between Bobby forks and 
Rajcsh Mara, they declared 24 
behind to try to fashion a 
positive result today. 

. It was a cool, hazy day 
conducive to swing. Rice 
bowled very differently from in 
South Africa during the winter, 
keeping the ball well up to the 
bat at little more than medium 
pace. It was with a full toss that 
he dismissed Greenidge in his 
first over, the batsman missing a 
dip to leg. 

Rice then had Terry nicely 
held at first slip as he went to 
drive. Chris Smith was taken 
there too, this time by Rice 
himself off Cooper, whose fine 

and length were as impress ve as 

his figures would suggest. 

It was questionable whether, 
in such conditions, defence was 
the best form of attack. Nicholas 
look an hour over his first three 
runs while Robin Smith opted 
to drive anything short or over 

S titched — Hemmings was swept 
or six and the fester bowlers 
driven to the short boundary in 
front of the Parr stand. - 
Smith reached his SO off 100 
balls with seven fours, before be 
was surprised by Cooper’s extra 
lift No one doubts he has the 
ability to play for England: he 
needs now to emphasize it with 
a weight of runs. 

Other than forks, only Mar- 
shall then made much of a score. 
The majority of runs in a 
partnership of 55 from 18 overs 
with Nicholas were his. Rice 
took his wicket, too, caught and 
bowled .and the Hampshire cap- 
tain. having lasted 38 overs for 
23 by means of admirable 
concentration, received a simi- 
lar delivery from Cooper which 
he spooned to short leg. 

There was a fair crowd at 
Trent Bridge since spectators 
were admitted free to encourage 
membership.

Hardie provides

therefore, 

« «h UHIUI utwih stutno hit as be tnea to u«i 

most attractive inmngs for Es- ^ ^ « him off 


sex yesterday but it was a dour 
81 by Hardie which provided 
the backbone to their totaL 
Pringle led a late rally by the 
tailenders to check 
Warwickshire's attack after they 
threatened to give their side a 
first-innings lead. 

For most of the day tbe Essex 
batsmen, other than Border, 
found it hard to go through with 
their shots on a slow pitch. 
Warwickshire's .five seam 
bowlers, who included two 
promising newcomers in Mifian 
and M union, were often able to 
swing the balL 

Handle’s unglaraorous but 
effective qualities were tailor- 
made for the circumstances. 
When he was fourth out in 
Gifford’s first over after tea, 
Hardie had batted four and 
threequarters hours without giv- 
ing a chance. 

Prichard wasHandie’s partner 
in a staunch second wicket stand 
after Gooch-fell to the first ball 
of the day. Gooch had rung 
down the curtain on Saturday 
with three successive fours from 
Small's final over. Now be felled 
to offer a proper stroke to a 
breakback from McMillan. 
Warwickshire’s new signing 
from South Africa. 

McMillan also yorked Prich- 
ard in tbe last over before lunch 
which brought m Border, bris- 
tling with determination and a 
beard grown since we saw him 


tbe pitch. . , . . 

Mumon, who is making his 
championship debut, added 
three feel to his 6ft 5tn with a 
celebratory leap ip lhc «r. 
Formerly with Leicestershire, 
Munton always maintained a 
good line. 

Hardie and Fletcher were out 
in successive overs after tea. 
Prio&le found gaps with sensible 
strokes afid Raster and Lever 
were his main helpers os Essex 
secured iheir fourth batting 
point and then declared.

TAUNTON: Yorkshire have 
seared 183 for two against 
Somerset. 

On Saturday, in bright sun- 
shine. there was no play. This 
irritated a few of the rider 
brigade, especially as there was 
no cider either, but it was a 
reasonable decision, for the 
ground was like a squab pie 
which had been dropped into a 
water butt. Yesterday the morn- 
ing was gloomy, but brightness 
gradually fell from the air. and it 
was decided to make a start at 
2 . 0 . 

Roebuck, Somerset’s new 
captain, looking solemn as a 
judge, if his former colleague, 
Popplewell will forgive the anal- 
ogy, took a sprightly decision to 
put Yorkshire in. At 5.0, in the 
sixtieth . over. Yorkshire were 
120 for no wicket and Roebuck 
was still looking solemn, though 
by this time the comparison that 
occurred to me was more that of 
a worried old owL Never mind. 
It was his bat chance of forcing 
the finish in such an abbreviated 
match. But the ground, even the 
pitch, was still too soggy to help 
the bowlers, though the slower 
outfield reduced Yorkshire’s 
score by many runs.

increasing serenity, and the 
partnership was only broken by 
a run out, a good throw from 
Richards at cover catching Met-

He and his partner had laid a

•Much excitement in the 
Panorama office at the weekend. 
Tonight (BBC 1,9.30pm) will 
show whether all the huffing and 
puffing was mispiaced.Thsra 
does not seem to be much 
likelihood of that judging by 
what Httie I have been able to 
glean about THE DREAM 
THAT FELL OUT OF THE 
SKY, Robert Harris's 
investigation into the chain of 
errors mat led to tha space 
shuttle Challenger blowing up 
less than two minutes after Ks 
launch in January. For NASA, 
this was the triumph that 
fumed into a scandal. 

Panorama , taking a 
responsible attitude, pursues its 
inquiry beyond the stage of 
pointing a Naming flnger.lt 
attempts to gauge the fu8 
extent of the shadow which the 


CHOICE 


Challenger disaster has cast 
over the future of space traveL 
•No point. I'm afraid, writing 
to me m complain about what 
many of you think is the 
excessive amount of time (six 
hours today) that BBC2 is 
devoting to tha Embassy 
snooker championship.ft is, 
in any case, just not true to say 
that B8C2 has aU but cleared 
the decks to allow us to watch 
the action. Take tonight. for 
example. Except for a tedious 
Presley musical, Girt Happy. 
(6.00). this is an average to 
strong BBC2 night, with a 
controversial Horizon fflm about 
a classroom mathematics 
revolution. ( 8 . 10 pm) and the 
eleventh episode of the 


marvellous German film Hsimat 
(9.00]u All this - plus the 
unpredictability of Newsnight 
(10.55). Scarcely a night 01 
total snooker, „. 

•I cannot remember when I 
last heard such a satisfying farce 
on radio as John Ty deman s 
production of Pinero's DANDY 
DICK (Radio 4. 8.15pm). 
Stylistically, this tale of an 
unwordly Dean sucked into 
the world of the Turf, is a 

S lorious collision between 
ane Austen. Trollope and Ben 
Travers. Plot-wise, it is as 
mischievous as a wagon-load of 
monkeys, and it nails, once 
and for all l nope, that 
nonsensical judgment that 
Alec McCowen (as the Dean) 
cannot play comedy.

Big day in the 


power game 


Liverpool and Everton are 
the principal members of an 
exclusive club who have col- 
lected almost all the honours 
in English football in the last 
Five years. .As if to illustrate 
their" omnipotence, between 
them they are about to add the 
FA Cup to their list of trophies 
and. more than probably, ihe 
Canon League title. 

West Ham United must 
beat Manchester City at Up- 
ton Park tonight if the 
Merseyside neighbours are not 
to be left alone at the head of 
this season's race. Another 
fixture to be staged in London 
this afternoon could encour- 
age Liverpool and Everton to 
be part of a minority group 
next season as well. 

Their chairmen. John 
Smith (Liverpool) and Philip 
Carter (Everton). were influ- 
ential figures in secret discus- 
sions. which lasted for some 
nine months, with their col- 
leagues from Arsenal, Man- 
chester United and 
Tottenham Hotspur. Last Sep- 
tember they unveiled their 
threat 10 break away from the 
League unless certain condi- 
tions were met. Three months 
later firm proposals were 
formed. 

The first and second divi- 
sion chairmen drew up a 
formula which included a 
redistribution of wealth, a 
restructuring of the divisions 
and a change in the manage- 
ment committee. BuL as al- 
ways in such meetings in the 
past, the most significant deci- 
sion to be taken by the 92 
chairmen today concerns the 
suggested alterations to the

progress will be made and the 
patience of the so-called ‘super 
league' clubs as well as the 
foundations of the antiquated 
system may be broken. If so. 
the run-in that is about to 
begin will indeed be final. It 
promises to be the most 
thrilling for years after Liver-

Griffiths shatters 
Higgins’s dream 


For the second year running 
Terry Griffiths shauered Alex 
Higgins's dreams of a third 
world title when he won a 
nerve-jangling second-round 
encounter 13-12 in Sheffield 
on Saturday night 
Higgins had been seeking 
revenge for two world champi- 
onship defeats by Griffiths - 
at the same stage last year and 
a quarter-final defeat in 1979.

to win the world title.

decisions made by the referee 
and I hope the powers-that-be 
will take the necessary 
action,” he said, without en- 
larging on his complaint 


Griffiths, without a major 
title for more than three years, 
said: “I have just spent 10 
minutes crying in my dressing 
room, and I haven't done that 
since 1979.” 


Trailing 7-9 when the final 
session began, Higgins pulled 
up to level at 10 and then 1 1 
frames each, before clinching 
a controversial 24th frame, 
when ten minutes without a 
ball being potted led referee 
John Smyth to tell both 
players they had one more 
shot before "he would order a 
re-rack. 

Both players appeared to 
accept the position, but al- 
though Higgins went on to win 
65-23 to force a decider he 
later claimed that he was far 
from happy. “I have put in a

RUGBY LEAGUE 


Leeds capitalize on 
St Helens blunders 


By Keilb Macklin 


Halifax, the champions, 
Wigan. Warrington and Leeds 
will contest the semi-finals of 
the last premiership trophy to 
be sponsored by Slalom Lager. 
The surprise result of the first 
round was provided by Leeds, 
who ran in six tries against a Si 
Helens side who were regard- 
ed as the candidates for the 
title. St Helens squandered 
several early try-scoring 
chances, and their defence 
opened up alarmingly lo allow 
Leeds to score three tries from 
as many attacks. 

Leeds grew in confidence as 
the game progressed, and al- 
though St Helens worked 
three good tries. Leeds added 
three more of their own in a 
convincing 38-22 win. The 
Leeds tries came from Gibson 
(2). Kevin Rayne, Owen, 
Medley and Conway, with 
seven goals from Creasser. St- 
Helens scored through Allen. 
Loughlin and Hughes, with 
five goals from Loughlin. 

Halifax are determined to 
prove that their championship 
triumph was not just a trick of 
fixture congestion. Led by 
their Australian coach. Chris 
Anderson, who scored two 
tries, they played some bril- 


liant attacking rugby, particu- 
larly in the second half to beat 
Hull 32-20. One of Anderson's 
tries was a spectacular 60-yard 
run from inside his own half. 

Hall Kingston Rovers 
showed that their minds were 
on Wembley nexi week as. 
after half an hour of token 
resistance, they collapsed 
against Wigan and were 
trounced 47-0. 


Warrington produced a 
“ling fini: ' 


thrilling finish in their derby 
tie against Whines. They were 
trailing 8-6 with just over a 
minute to go when McGinty 
made a break. Bishop support- 
ed him, and Duane finished 
the move with the match- 
winning try. 

In the semi-finals Halifax 
will be home to Leeds, and 
Wigan will entertain Warring- 
ton. In the second division 
Leigh won at Doncaster and 
win the second division title.

Noah left 
holding 


the baby 


From Richard Evans 
Monte Carlo 


Yannick Noah, of France, 
found himself with a strong 
Swedish connection over the 
weekend. In the space of 24 
hours, the Frenchman scored 
one of the best victories of his 
career over Mats Wilander in 
the semi-finals of the Monte 
Carlo Open, became the father 
of a baby daughter by his 
Swedish wife and then pro- 
ceeded to lose 6-3, 6-2 to 
Joakim Nystrom, Wilanderis 
close friend and doubles 
partner. 

In the end it was a damp 
demise for Noah who, in 
beating Wilander, had become 
the first Frenchman since 
Pierre Darmon in 1963 to 
reach the Monte Carlo final 
with as thrilling a display of 
pure athleticism as one could 
have wished to see. 

Considering it had come 
after a quarter-final win in the 
morning as the committee 
somehow got the tournament 
back on schedule, Noah was 
entitled to feel exhaused even 
without the news from New 
York where Cecilia Noah was 
having the baby. 

But none of that should 
detract from the achievement 
of the laconic Nystrom who 
strolled through the tourna- 
ment for the loss of only one 
set — to Stefan Edberg in a well 
played semi-final — and so 
collected his fourth Nabisco 
Grand Prix singles title of the 
year, a number equalled only 
by Ivan Lendl. 

The final started in the rain 
but for all Nystrom cared it 
might have been snowing. 
Noah went at him from the 
start and led 2-0 before the 
Swedish passing shots began 
to (low and Noah's lunges at 
the net became less and less 
effective. The end result was 
marginally closer than 
Nystrom’s one-side success 
against Noah in the final at La 
Quinta in February, but not 
much. 

On Saturday the emergence 
of the sun enabled the tourna- 
ment to come alive and, 
having suddenly been provid- 
ed with a proper stage, the 
players did not muff their 
lines. Noah was able to reap 
the benefit of an occasional 
error by Wilander while giving 
full rein to his attacking flair 
and breathtaking athletic abil- 
ity. A stop volley winner, the 
product of a full-length dive 
across the net,, was typical of 
the way in which Noah 
thrilled the crowd and, more 
importantly, wrenched the 
game from Wilander’s grasp. 

There remained only one 
further irony. Noah's" first 
child, a boy, is called Joakim. 
Nystrom. in his quiet way, 
thinks that is rather amusing.

when car after car came to a 
halt in the closing minutes of 
yesterday’s race and the win- 
ner managed to cross the line 
only after zigzagging in order 
to eke out the last few drops 
from his fuel system. 

.Alain Prost whose Marl- 
boro McLaren-Tag had also 
been first to finish Iasi year's 
race but was subsequently 
disqualified when it was found 
to be fractionally underweight 
had no such problems this 
time, though his victory was a 
close calL “Going into the last 
lap my computer told me that 
I had enough fuel with about 
three litres to spare, but 
obviously it was a mistake,” 
Prost said. ** My engine be- 
came starved with three cor- 
ners still to go.” 

The problem was aggravat- 
ed by the fan that two of them 
were slow S- bends, so there 
was little chance of freewheel- 
ing all the way to the line. 
Only his violent rocking of the 
car down the two short 
straights enabled him to keep 
his engine running for those 
vital last few seconds. 

Prost who had taken the 
lead from Nelson Piquet’s 
Canon Williams- Honda after 


the mid race pitstops for fresh 
tyres, then built a lead of 
almost half a minute over 
Piquet who was in severe 
clutch trouble and doing his

best to conserve his gearbox. 
But as Prost slowed during 
the final lap. Piquet with 
plenty of fuel in hand, closed 
to within 7.6 seconds in the 
run-up to the flag. They were 
the only drivers to complete 
the full distance. 


Gerhard Berger, who was 
also in clutch trouble with his 
Benetton-BMW. was running 
in sixth place with three laps 
to go. Then a dramatic series 
of events unfolded. First Mi- 
chele Alboreto, after looking 
likely to pass Piquet suddenly 
swept his Ferrari into the pits 
and out of the race with 
suspected turbo failure. A 
minute or two later Keke 
Rosberg whose McLaren had 
led the race for four laps 
around mid distance, sudden- 
ly slowed and was parked off 
the track as his fuel ran out, 
and within a few seconds 
Riccardo Patrese’s hopes of 
finishing either third or fourth 
were dashed when be, top, 
came to a halt with the 
surviving Brabham-BMW. 

So. suddenly. Berger was 
third and. wisely, as be came 
up behind Prost in the run-up 
to the line, he held back just 
behind him rather than pass 
and then have to complete a 
further lap. He was followed 
home by Stefan Johansson, 
who scored Ferrarfs first 
points of the season, and 
Rosberg and Patrese. were 
credited with fifth and sixth 
places respectively. 

Once again the Arrows team 
finished the race tantalizmgly 
close to being in the points, 
Thierry Boutsen finishing sev- 


enth and Marc Surer ninth, 
with a sore Martin Brundie 
sandwiched between them in 
bis Data General Tyrrell. On 
the wanning up lap Brundie 
lost control on his race car 
which went nose firs into a 
barrier and, after explaining 
that “something seemed to go 
wrong at the tear of the car. - 
he was given an aerosol spray 
of pain killer on a badly 
bruised left knee before being 
strapped into his 1985 spare 
car for the second race in 
succession. 

It was a disappointing day 
for British drivers. Nigel 
Mansefl. who had been third 
fastest in practice with his 
WiUiams-Honda, was an early 
retirement with a broken en- 
gine. “It had frit rough rig 
from the start,” he said , wh 
Johnny Dumfries, like his JPS 
Lotus team leader, Ayrton 
Senna, dropped out with an 
overheated right rear wheel 
bearing; Jonathan Palmer was 
also out of luck.

powered Lola started weft with

He was full of praise, though,

Ballesteros beaten for third 
time after leading the field 


From Mitchell Platts, Madrid 


Howard Clark gave 
Severiano Ballesteros further 
food for thought by coming 
from behind to win the Sepsa 
Madrid Open on the Puerta de 
Hierro course here yesterday. 
An extraordinary swing of 
three shots at the twelfth 
enabled Clark to move from 
two behind to one in front of 
his Spanish rival and from 
that point he did not lose the 
lead. 

Clark, who had previously 
won the title in 1978 and 1 984, 
had a dosing round of 69 for a 
score of 274, which gave him 
the £20.000 first prize by one 
shot from Ballesteros (70). 

Then Clark rubbed salt into 
Ballesteros's wounds by win- 
ning a play-off for a car, 
valued at £22.000, by holing 
from 25 feet at the first extra 
hole. That prize was based on 
the five-round aggregates of 
the players induding the pro- 
am score last Wednesday. 

For Ballesteros it was the 
third time in three weeks that 


he had lost after appearing to 
be in command. At the US 
Masters in Augusta Jack 
Nicklaus made up six shots on 
Ballesteros in the last ten 
holes. Then a week ago the 
journeyman South African. 
John Bland, started the final 
round two shots behind 
Ballesteros, but came through 
to win tbe Cannes Open. 

On this occasion the twd fth 
hole proved to be Ballesteros' 
Waterloo. He drove left then 
struck his next shot right and 
35 yards short of the green, 
from which point be needed 
four more shots to gel down. 
Clark provided the dagger 
blow by chipping in from 1 5 
yards for a birdie three. 

Ballesteros, who had started 
out level with Clark, had 
moved ahead with an outward 
half of 34, but he now found 
himself under extreme pres- 
sure. Clark immediately holed 
from 10 feet at the thirteenth 
for another birdie and, as 
Ballesteros threatened to 


counter-attack, he holed from 
five feet for a two at the 
seventeenth. 


“What happened at the 
twelfth was such a surprise 
ihat I didn't even realize I was 
leading.” said Clark. “By that 
time, having been rather tense 
and tentative, 1 had resigned 
myself to the need to relax, 
especially as there were other 
players threatening to catch 
me.”

Bad break 
for rebels 


Pretoria (Reuter) — The 
New Zealand rugby rebels 
overcame the loss of their 
captain Andy Dalton, who 
suffered a broken jaw, to beat 
a strong Northern Transvaal 
side 10-9 here yesterday. 

The tourists escaped defeat 
when a Naas Botha penalty 
scraped the post in the dying 
seconds of tbe game. Officials 
said Dalton is unlikely to play 
again on the unofficial tour.

Troke is a 
heroine 
in the heat 


From Richard Eaton 
Jakarta 


Helen Troke’s 6-1 1, 1 1-5. 1 1-3 
win over the Afl-Engiand 
champion Kim Yon Ja res- 
cued a good deal of self- 
respect for England, even 
though the last medal hopes 
disappeared in a .4-1 defeat for 
the women to South Korea in 
the Uber Cup changnonships 
held here yesterday. • 


England's men ended with a 
5-0 win in the Thomas Cup 
over Singapore, but they too 
foiled to qualify after defeats 
earlier in the event to Malay- 
sia and China. 


Both teams reached the last' 
four last time but the plain: feet 
of the matter was that this 
time, after injuries and argu- 
ments and the absence of four 
players, the squad was just hot 
good enough to do any better. 


Indonesia, China, Denmark 
and Malaysia qualified in the 
men’s event with Indonesia, 
tbe holders, looking a likely 
bet to bang on to the title after 
an emphatic win. over Den- 
mark enabled- them to avoid 
China in tbe last four. 


Meanwhile, China, Indone- 
sia. Japan and South Korea go . 
through m the women's. 


Troke was a heroine. The 
heat and humidity were worse 
than ever and the opposition 
tougher. Yet for the first time 
in this event the European 
champion responded with a 
belief in her ability to survive 
in the awful conditions —even 
though she trailed by a game 
and 2-5. 


“U was so unbelievably hot 
out there that J thought I had 
been left for deadr Troke 
said. “But when I looked ai 
Kim she looked even worse: 
and f told myself to get out 
there and do it" - 


However, singles losses for 
Fiona EHion and Gillian 
Gowers and a doubles defeat 
for Karen Beckman and Sara 
Halsall confined England to a 
spectators’ role for the rest of 
the tournament
