The Commonwealth sum- 
mit opened yesterday with 
signs that au the leaders 
involved are moving towards 
Britain’s. position that. further 
sanctions against South Africa 
should be taken only as part of 
an internationally co- 
ordinated agreement. 

The seven leaders of the 
countries who sponsored the 
Commonwealth Emiment 
Persons Group- mission to 
South Africa had their first 
session at Marlborough House 
apparently determined to' 
avoid an open split! 

Sir Lynden PindHng, Prime 
Minister of the Bahamas and 
the conference chairman, de- 
scribed the mood at the first 
session as one of caution and 
seriousness. “Everyone' rec- 
ognized the importance of 
arriving at a unified dedaonlf 
possible. Everyone recognized 
the gravity of the moment]’ 

He said there was no vitriol. 
“Everyone was calm. My job 
is to keep h cool and to keep it 
calm.” 

Mrs Margaret Thatcher, in a 
more conciliatory mood than 
some of her recent tough 
statements against sanctions 
have suggested, had separate 
meetings before the con- 
ference with Mr Rajiv Gan- 
dhi, the . Indian Prime 
Minister, and Sir Lynden. She 
had already met President 
Kaunda of Zambia and Mr 
Brian Mahoney, the Ca- 
nadian Prime Minister, on 
Saturday. 

She also had meetings with 
Mr Bob Hawke,' the Austra- 
lian Prime Mraistes^Bnd Mr 
Robert Mugabe.; the Prime' 
Minister of Zimbabwe^ ** a 
pre-conference lunch hosted 
by Mr Gandhi at a London 
hotel 

British sources said later 


By Philip Webster, Chief Political Correspondent 

that in all the bilateral talks 
there had been no threat to the 
Prime Minister of departures 
from the Commonwealth, or 
of retaliatory sanctionsagainst 
Britain, or of any plan for a 
full Commonwealth con- 
ference to be held later in the 
year. 

Mrs Thatcher’s aim in all 
the talks was said to be to 
listen to the views of her 
Commonwealth colleagues, 
but British, officials said that 
in all the conversations the 
need for co-ordinated action

Namibia market 
blast kills five 

FromMkhael Hornsby, Johannesburg 


five people were killed and 
24 injured at the weekend in 
two bomb attacks, one at a 
beach resort near Cape Town, 
and one in Walvis. Bay, an 
enclave on the coast of Na- 
mibia which is legally part of 
South Africa. 

By far the most serious, 
explosion was at a meat 
market in Walvis Bay, where 
all the deaths and 23 of the 
injuries occurred. Four of the 
injured are said to be still in a 
serious condition. 

According to the Gov- 
ernment’s Bureau for Inform- 
ation, thorn killed were a 
white woman, a Coloured 
man and his wire, a black man 
and a black woman. Fourteen 
women — one white, six blacks 
and seven Coloureds — and 
nine men — four blacks and 
five Coloureds — were injured. 

A spokesman for the bu- 
reau, Mr Casper Venter, said 
police investigations into the 
explosion suggested that who- 
ever planted the bomb had 


brought it into the market in a 
paper bag. 

Under international law. 
South Africa's occupation of 
Namibia is illegal but the 
Walvis Bay enclave was an- 
nexed by the Capo colony 
during the days of British rule, 
and is legally part of South 
Africa. 

Independence for Namibia, 


would not -affect South 
rican control of Walvis Bay, a 
situation that would present 
serious problems for which- 
ever government emerged in 
Windhoek, the Namibian cap- 
ital after independence. 

The main guemlla move- 
ment fighting for Namibia's 
independence, the South West 
African People's Organization 
(SwapoX is active in the 
populous northern part of the 
country, along the Namibian- 
Angokn border. There is no 
previous record of insurgents

Thatcher should be excluded 
because of her stand on sanc- 
tions. While that would ckariy 
be unacceptable to Britain, the 
Sun that Dr Kaunda had 
accepted the case for a more 
widely co-ordinated effort was 
seized upon by British 
o&cials. 

Dr Kaunda and other lead- 
ers win clearly be pressing for 
Britain to agree to further 
measures over the next two 
days. Mis Thatcher is ex- 
pected to argue that, though 
she may reluctantly accept the 
case m principle for further 
sanctions, none should be 
agreed until late September, 
when European Community 
foreign ministers meet to dis- 
cuss the outcome of the mis- 
sion to southern Africa by Sir 
Geoffrey Howe; the Foreign 
Secretary. 

... Yesterday’s first session of 
the conference was given a 
report on the Enrolment Per- 
sons Group mission by Mr 
Malcolm Fraser, the former 
Prime Minister of Australia, 
and General Ousegun 
Obasanjo, former head of the 
Nigerian Government, Who 
were the group’s co-chairmen. 

Later Sir Geoffrey reported 
on his mission. He said his 
experiences in South Africa 
had confirmed his belief that 
comprehensive sanctions 
would not induce Pretoria to 
take the steps the Common- 
wealth wanted to see. It would 
be unhkefy to move under 
foreign pressure. 

Sir Lynden sgid afterwards 
thm all the Commonwealth' 
beads, .including •- Mrs 
Thatcher, had readily agreed 
that adequate progress had not 
been made towards the ending

Ban sought on house ‘gazumping 9 

By Robin Young 


The Law Commission is 
examining possible ways of 
banning the practice .of 
“gazumping” in property 
sales, which has enjoyed a 
revival during the recent pe- 
riod of rapidly rising house 
prices. 

The commission’s standing 
committee on conveyancing is 
considering a number of ways 
in which vendors might be 
prevented from accepting last- 
minute higher 


having agreed a price with 
intending purchasers. . 

The practice can involve the 
disappointed buyers is hun- 
dreds, or even thousands, of 
pounds of abortive costs in 
survey and legal fees. 

A week ago Mr John Hed- 
dle. Conservative MP for 
Mid-Staffordshire and a vice- 
president of the Building Soci- 
eties Association, wrote to the 
Prime Minister urging her to 
outlaw the practice by adopt- 


ing the Scottish System in 
which acceptance of an offer is 
binding on both parties. 

Other possibilities that the 
committee intends to examine 
are making the vendin' bear 
the financial costs of the 
disappointed purchaser, or 
penalizing the vendor with a 
fine related to the property’s 
value. 

The recommendations are 
to be published later this year. 


Raiu hits 
roads and 
sports 

Torrential rain over much 
of South-east England yes- 
terday made driving con- 
ditions treacherous and 
caused a series of accidents. 
Sport events were affected. 

More than an inch fell in 
many parts and the London 
Weather Centre issued a warn- 
ing that the next few days are 
likely to bring more storms. In 
contrast. Pans was sweltering 
with tempoature teaching 95 
degrees F. 

Wet conditions made driv- 
ing particularly hazardous on 
motorways. On the M25 in 
Surrey 1 1 cars were involved 
in . a collision. Two people 
were hurt. 

Another multiple collision 
happened near Slough when 
five cars were involved in an 
accident on the M4. 

The Automobile Associ- 
ation said; “Conditions on the 
roads have been appalling. 

Despite the weather heavy 
traffic was reported on many 
roads in the morning as 
holiday-makers left for the 
Lake District, Wales and 
coastal areas. 

However, by early after- 
noon there was congestion on 
main roads to London as day 
trippers abandoned their out- 
ings and beaded for home. 

five John Player Special 
League cricket matches were 
abandoned without a bail 
being bowled, and play was 
curtailed at a sixth, at Old 
Trafford. 

There was no play after 
lunch in Derbyshire’s match 
against the New Zealanders. 

At Sil version e, atrocious 
conditions brought a 30- 
minute delay in the Shell Oils 
British motorcycling grand 
prix after an accident on the 
first corner in which Paul 
Lewis on a Heron-Suzuki 
sustained a suspected broken 
ankle.

US offers delay 
and ‘sharing’ on 
space defence 

From Michael Binyon, Washington 


President Reagan has of- 
fered Mr Gorbachov a delay of 
seven and a half years before 
any US deployment of a strat- 
egic defence system, and has 
proposed the sharing O /'“bene- 
fits” of the US Strategic 
Defence Initiative (SDI). 

The offer, the first time Mr 
Reagan has shown real will- 
ingness to bargain over the 
future of space defence, was 
made in bis confidential letter 
to the Soviet leader on July 25. 
The draft was drawn up at a 
secret meeting between Mr 
Reagan's top advisers and cir- 
culated to only a few senior 
officials for comment. The 
usual broader group of arms 
control experts was not con- 
sulted, in order to avoid bu- 
reaucratic stalemate. 

However The Washington 
Post, quoting Administration 
sources; yesterday published 
the gist of the message, which 
is a clear attempt to obtain 
movement on arms control to 
prepare the way for a summit 
meeting here at the end of this 
year. For the first time since 
taking office, Mr Reagan ap- 
pears ready for substantial 
arms control agreements that 
include limitations on new 
defensive weapons. 

In a key passage, Mr Reagan 
proposed that after & five-year 
research period lasting until 
1991. the United States and 
the Soviet Union would begin 
discussions on how to manage 
a transition period to a dr- 
fence-centred era. But if no 
agreement could be reached 
within another two years, each 
side could go its own way to 
pnt into place a space-based 
defensive system. 

The offer to share SDI 
technology with the Russians 
was made on Mr Reagan’s per- 
sonal insistence and against 
the advice of his senior advis- 
ers. But it did not make clear 
what would be shared. 

US allies were informed, 
officials told The Washington 
Post, that the letter implied no 
change at present in Washing- 


ton's “narrow*' interpretation 
of the 1972 anti-ballistic mis- 
sile treaty. 

Mr Reagan’s proposals on 
SDI were clearly linked to the 
deep reductions he is seeking 
in offensive nuclear weapons. 
He told Mr Gorbachov the US 
wanted a 50 per cent cut in 
strategic nuclear forces. 

Until the final stages of the 
drafting, Mr Reagan planned 
to propose that the US, Soviet 
Union. Britain and France 
talk about offensive weapons 
reductions beyond 50 per cent. 
But this was dropped after 
strong protests from Mrs 
Thatcher. Hie Prime Min- 
ister. briefed by Mr Paul 
Nftze, the US aims control 
adviser, said the proposal did 
not reflect Britain's conditions 
for entering talks. 

Mr Reagan dropped a pro- 
posal to reduce US under- 
ground nuclear tests after 
strong objections from the 
Pentagon. In his letter he said 
a comprehensive test ban 
treaty was ihdfUS ultimate 
goal, but gradual progress 
should begin with improved 
verification of nuclear tests. 

He also reportedly proposed 
more bargaining to reduce 
conventional military forces, 
to eliminate chemical weap- 
ons and to halt nuclear proli- 
feration. He offered to co-op- 
erate in space exploration and 
in nuclear power plant safety. 

The President’s change of 
heart on bargaining over SDI 
appears' to be linked to his 
desire for a summit, which the 
Russians have insisted can 
only take place if there is 
progress in arms talks. In 
recent weeks President Rea- 
gan has appeared increasingly 
confident that the summit will 
take place in November or 
December. As a sign that pre- 
parations are underway, Mr 
George Shultz, the Secretary 
of State, will hold talks with 
Mr Eduard Shevardnadze, the 
Soviet Foreign Minister on 
September 19 and 20.

Thatcher seeks split 
of DHSS into two 

By Our Chief Political Correspondent 

The Prime Minister is be- Civil Service, to stay on until 


lieved to be considering a 
limited restructuring of 
Whitehall departments based 
on the splitting of the Depart- 
ment of Health and Social 
Security into two separate 
ministries. 

The plan, which would 
mean a health department and 
social security department 
each with their own Cabinet 
ministers, is understood to be 
one of several that have gone 
before Mrs Thatcher's 
Downing Street policy unit. 

One of the reasons for Mrs 
Thatcher asking Sir Robert 
Armstrong, the Cabinet sec- 
retary and Head of the Home 


the next election beyond his 
normal retirement date was 
that she wanted him to advise 
her on any changes she even- 
tually decides to make: 

The splitting of the DHSS 
would be popular on both 
sides of the party. The right- 
wing Centre for Policy Studies 
has backed the idea, and 
ministers believe it would be a 
way of underlining the 
Government's commitment 
to the health service. 

A plan to widen the func- 
tions of the Department of 
Education and Science to 
cover training is also believed 
to be under consideration. 


£ 800 m 

blunder 

over 

TSB 

By Graham Seaijeant 
Financial Editor 

The Government has unwit- 
tingly given away £800 million 
in its plans to turn the Trustee 
Savings Banks into a public 
limited company. 

This became dear yesterday 
after the publication in The 
Times on Saturday of the 
House of Lords* judgment on 
disputes over ownership of the 
banks. ■ 

The Government was anx- 
ious to move the trustee sav- 
ings banks into the private 
sector but was advised that 
neither the state, the depos- 
itors nor trustees could prove 
ownership of the assets. 

The Trustee Savings Banks 
Act of 1985, brought in to dear 
the confusion, gave the Gov- 
ernment the right to transfer 
the assets to a new public 
limited company, TSB Group. 

The assets, including an 
£800 million surplus built up 
by U>e banks over ISO years, 
were duly vested on July 21, 
after the Law Lords had 
finally rejected depositors’ 
claims to special rights. 

But the judgment ruled on 
Friday that the state had 
actually owned the banks’ 
assets all the time. Lord 
Templeman, in a judgment 
supporting Lord Keith, said 
that under the 1985 Act 
^Parliament decided to 
present their surplus assets 
amounting, it was said, to £800 
million, to the successor 
companies. 

“The House was not con- 
cealed with the wisdom of that 
deciskra,” be added. 

Dr John Vincent, who lost 
his long battle on behalf iff 
depositors in the Lords, said 
yesterday the flotation was 
now being carried out at best 
on tiie basis of a mistake or at 
worst on a deception. “De- 
cisions have all been made on 
the basis of nobody owning the 
banks. Now h appears that the 
£800 million surplus is 
taxpayers' money,” he said. 

“The only moral thing to do 
b to revoke the vesting in- 
strument in view of this new 
judgment that the state owns 
the hank.”. . . 

The depositors’ court case 
had delayed the planned nota- 
tion of TSB Group by more 
than a year. It has now been 
firmly booked for early next 
month. Under the sale, half of 
the group's share would be 
reserved for depositors who 
had significant accounts in 
December 1984 and for 
employees. 

Since the Government had 
arranged the flotation on the 
assumption that no one had 
previously owned the banks, 
the proceeds of the issue are to 
go into the TSB Group; thus 
those who bought the shares 
wifi have the benefit of the 
surpluses as well as any money 
spent buying the shares. 

Last night, the Treasury ■ 
refused to comment on Lord 
Templeman's judgment. 


Woman killed 
in Sydney car 
race accident 

Sydney (AP) — A woman 
spectator was killed and nine 
others injured yesterday when 
a racing car became airborne 
and plunged into the crowd at 
the Amaroo Park Raceway. 

The crash occurred at the 
start of the final round of the 
Australian Drivers Cham- 
pionship when cars driven by 
Peter Hopwood and Graham 
Watson touched wheels. 

HopwootTs car, travelling at 
110 mph, was pushed on to an 
embankment, creating a 
launching ramp for the ve- 
hicle, which flew 10 yards into 
the air. 


Kinnock under attack 


Mr Robert Kilroy-Silk, La- 
bour MP for Knowsley North 
who announced last week that 
he would resign from politics, 
attacks Mr Neil Kinnock, 
Labour Party leader, in The 
Times today. 

Mr Kilroy-Silk said that he 
was exhausted by a prolonged 
fight against the Militant Ten- 
dency in .his Merseyside 


constituency; his derision was 
immediately criticized by Mr 
Kinnock. “Your remarks,” 
Mr Kilroy-Silk writes m an 
open letter to his party leader, 
“have demeaned and under- 
mined the bitter struggle that 
has been and is still being 
waged by ordinary members 
of the constituency party 
against the Militants.”

Gridiron giants pound Wembley’s sacred turf 


by Alan Hamilton 

“This is an excellent grass 
surface, or pitch, as they call it 
over here,” explained the 
American radio commentator 
into his mkropboiie. 

The sacred turf of Wembley, 
curiously lined and painted 
with ""faw'liw numbers and 
symbols, was about to host its 
first game of American Foot- 
ball an event at which bands, 
dancing girls, and freQuent 
pauses are occasionally inter- 
rupted by short bursts of play. 

A day's torrential rain had 
soaked the Wembley grass, 
but with a £500,000 invest- 
ment. a capacity crowd Of 


80,000, and American tele- 
vision waiting to broadcast the 
game fire to a Sunday lnncb- 
time midfence, die event conld 
not be deterred by a mere 
cloudburst. Luckily the rain 
stopped shortly before the 
serious play began. 

By that time, the turf had 
already been pounded by 32 
pairs of boots belonging to the 
Dallas Cheerleaders, a troupe 
of bare-thighed synchronized 
gymnasts who performed an 
energetic warm-up routine, bnt 
who stayed on the sidelines to 
cavort during the conntkss 
breaks in play. 

The Dallas Cowboys, under- 


dogs afta- their 44-0 thrashing 
back home last season by 
yesterday's opponents, the 
Chicago Bears, tried to gain 
the psychological advantage 
by fidding their own team of 
majorettes and' a 20-piece 
band. 

The dancers gave their own 
side tbe frill balletic treatment 
as the squad of padded space- 
men poured on to the pitch, bnt 
awarded the Bears little more 
than a twitch of their ostrich 

feathers. 

A total of 500 players, 
officials, and camp-followers 
from the two teams flew to 
London for last night's match, 
and most seemed to be on the 


pitcb before the kick-off^ 
including over 80 players from 
each side, despite only II 
being allowed to play at one 
time. 

American Football nor- 
mally played on synthetic all- 
weather surfaces, is a game 
with an endless scope for 
statistics. When tbe Bears 
opened tbe scoring after 20 
minutes, there was great de- 
bate amors the knowing over 
tbe precise length of the ran; it 
was judged to be 48 yards, a 
matter of importance to the 
eod-of-season tables. 

The scoring, however, wa$ 
tbe signal for a long pause. 


while television screened the 
co mm ercials. When play re- 
started, attention was focused 
on the hugest player on the 
field, the 23-stone William 
Perry, known as The Refrig- 
erator, and rumoured to have 
spent the afternoon devouring 
several pounds of hamburgers. 


“The Fridge is playing a 
variation of foe Dallas Flex,” 
said the radio commentator. 
The British spectators did not 
appear to be familiar with the 
Dallas Flex, but they cheered 
anyhow, and chanted “Here 
we go.” just to prove that this 
was indeed Wembley and not 
Dallas.

Labour checks 
overspending 
councils’ 
bank loans 

By Hngb Clayton . 


The huge debts incurred by 
many local councils whicn 
have used legal means to 
avoid government spending 
controls are to be investigated 
by a joint committee of La- 
bour MPs and council leaders. 

Loans used by councils to 
finance spending that would 
be ruled out by government 
controls are thought to total 
more than £1,000 million. 

The latest in the series is the 
£30 million deal negotiated by 
Labour members of Liverpool 
City Council with Japanese 
bankers just in time to beat a 
government ban that will 
apply retrospectively from 
July 22 if it is adopted by 
Parliament. 

But the complicated deals 
were pioneered by Conser- 
vative councils with the help 
of British merchant bankers. 

There are two types of deal, 
neither of which is publicized 
by many of the councils which 
use them. One enables coun- 
cils to borrow long-term to 
fund immediate expenditure. 
The other postpones the 
completion of payments for 
capital projects to escape 
downward government pres- 
sure on capital spending. 

The new conference centre 
at Torquay could not have 
been built without the help of 
a complicated deferred pur- 
chase scheme arranged by a 
subsidiary of Morgan Grenfell 
and a company set up to run 
the centre by the Conser- 
vative-dominated Torbay 
Borough Council. 

Last year Labour and SDP- 
Liberal Alliance members of 
the hung St Albans Council 
joined in adopting a scheme 
which enabled 400 new coun- 
cil homes to be built with 


£2 million that was trans- 
ferred to Morgan Grenfell out 
of the Government's down- 
ward spending ratchet. 

Labour leaders are more 
worried about the heavy loans 
being taken out by Labour-led 
authorities to finance immedi- 
ate spending and dodge gov- 
ernment brakes applied 
through grant cuts ana rate- 
capping. 

They are worried that the 
accumulated debt burden is so 
vast that it might disrupt the 
local regeneration of industry 
and public works 

The Audit Commission, 
which monitors council 
spending, is also worried. It 
said that “creative accounting, 
of which inadequate provision 
for bad debts is only one 
example, is a matter of 
increasing concern to audi- 
tors. It has become almost an 
industry.” 

Government figures show 
that the Labour-led councils 
in Manchester and Sheffield 
are each involved in deals 
totalling £100 million while 
the capital spending allocation 
awarded to each for this year 
by ministers is les? than £50 
million. 

Ministers have begun to 
taunt their Labour opponents 
about the gathering debt bur- 
den being accumulated by 
some councils. Mr William 
Waldegrave, Minister of State 
for Local Government, called 
it “a high risk strategy that 
depends on a Labour Govern- 
ment coming back that wall 
pay all their debts.” 

Ministers may manage to 
block part of the package 
recently agreed with bankers 
by Liverpool City Council. 


Treasury 

sustains 

spending 

challenge 

By Philip Webstar 
Chief Political 
Correspondent 

The Government yesterday 
continued its efforts to embar- 
rass the Labour leadership 
over its spending programme 
as Mr John MacGregor, the 
Chief Secretary, said that it 
could cost even more than the 
£28 billion figme which he 
dted last week. 

At the same time Mr 
MacGregor said he would be 
happy to subject his costings 
of Labour's plans to indepen- 
dent audit, provided Labour 
pot its own calculations to the 
same scrutiny. 

Mr Merfyn Rees, the former 
Labour Cabinet minister, sug- 
gested an audit last Friday to 
stop the “deceit coming from 
Tory ministers”. 

Mr MacGregor said that if 
Mr Roy Hattersley, the 
Shadow Chancellor who has 
dismissed the Treasury’s 
costings as silly and fantastic, 
told him which of Labour's 
commitments were not to be 
implemented he would take 
them off the list. 

He said be had not included 
in his calculations a lot of the 
pledges made by Mr Michael 
Meacher,Labonr*s chief; 
spokesman on soda! services. 

“Untfl Roy Hattersley con- 
trols this ungraded missile 
called Michael Meacher 
which seems to be directed at 
his own spending plans the 
overall figure would be a lot 
greater than £28 bOJioa” he 
said. 

• Last night, Mr Meacher 
said spending “promises” 
attributed to Mm worth £7 
billion were “Indricons”. He 
wrote to Mr MacGregor that 
the only commitments be 
made concerned pensions, 
child benefit and the payment 
of supplementary benefit 
That had been costed at 
£3.6 billion, Mr Meacher 
wrote.

Barristers to blacklist 
slow-paying solicitors 


The Bar is to name and 
withdraw credit from solic- 
itors who deliberately delay or 
refuse to pay barristers for 
their work. 

Mr Robert Johnson, QG> 
chairman of the Bar Fees and 
Legal Aid Committee, said 
yesterday that barristers 
would demand fees in ad- 
vance from blacklisted solic- 
itors from the autumn. 

He said that although there 
were less than a dozen firms 
who were persistent slow pay- 
ers, or refused payment a 
number of barristers faced 
financial difficulty because of 
unpaid fees. 

“Outstanding debts to a 
barrister of £30,000 are quite 


usual, and if you get paid 
within two years of the work 
you are doing welL It is the 
younger and weaker barristers 
who are the victims”, he said. 

The problem was most ev- 
ident in protracted matri- 
monial or civil injury cases. 

Mr Johnson said the Usual 
method of dealing with slow 
payment was for the chairman 
of the Bar to write to the 
senior partner of the firm 
involved. 

The withdrawal of credit 
scheme was unanimously ap- 
proved by 250 members of the 
Bar at its annual general 
meeting in Central Hall, 
Westminster.

Printers 
agree to 
end picket 

The National Graphical 
Association has agreed to end 
mass picketing at the News 
International plant, * at 
Wapping, east London. 1 

The derision by the NGA 
national council on Saturday 
brings the onion into line with 
Sogat *82, the biggest print 
anion, which decided last week 
to comply with the High Court 
order limiting to six the num- 
ber of pickets outside the print 
works. 

Mr Tony Dobbins, the 
NGA general secretary, told a 
meeting of 800 print workers 
in Bethnal Green, east Lon- 
don, that tiie union had to 
avoid any action which could 
result in its assets being seized 
by the courts so it could 
continue to financially support 
the seven-month dispute with 
News IntevnationaL 

“The national council has 
agreed, reluctantly, to comply 
with the court order. We have 
issued the instructions of the 
court to oar members", he 
said. 

“Bat we place on record opr 
disgust- that, once again, Jlrit- 
ffch jtttfgesratppearto be -using 
Tory laws on behalf of an 
American to takg.aroy. ftp 
jobs of British workers.” .. - 

On Thursday Mr Justice 
Stnart-Smith ruled tint the 
number of pickets should be 
limited to six at Wapping and 
the former offices in Gray's 
Inn Road and Bonverie Street 
after hearing evidence of vi- 
ol enceand intimidation by the 
protestors against News Inter- 
national workers. 

Demonstrations involving 
“the commission of wrongful 
acts” were banned, but the 
print unions could organize 
“peaceful, disciplined and or- 
derly marches around the 
plant unless police directed 
otherwise”. . _ . 

Print ' onion members 
swelled a march from Tower 
Hill to Wapping organized 7 by 
the Women's Rights Commit- 
tee of the south region of the 
TUC to about 2J500 on 
Saturday. 

The police said the 
demonstration was generally 
peaceful but 10 people- had 
been arrested for pubfic order 
offences. -

denied reports that he was to

Wnriri Chess Champions jup 

Third title draw an 
uneventful affair 


1 


-■Mi 

■ t » 

; r 

Vk' 11 


The third game of the world 
chess championship between 
Gary Kasparov and Anatoly 
Karpov ended in a draw 
after 35 moves. The split 
decision, the third in succes- 
sion, was an uneventful affair 
with the challenger, Karpov, 
aged 35. playing white, enjoy- 
ing what experts called a 
microscopic edge for much of 
the game. , 

After overlooking a clean 
win in the second game of his 
world title defence, Kasparov 
appeared unusually subdued 
for game three. As in his first 
encounter with Karpov, the 
opening was a Grunfeld de- 
fence. this time the Schlechier 
variation. 

After an early exchange of 
pawns in the centre, a sym- 
metrical position arose, but 
one in which Karpov's pieces 
were more aggressively posted 
and commanded greater 
space. Kasparov appeared un- 
comfortable in that he used 45 
minutes for the opening 
move, compared with 
Karpov's 15. 

Kasparov continued to pon- 
der over his moves while 
Karpov moved swiftly and 
easily, probing the black posi- 
tion for possible targets. 
Karpov massed his rooks on 
the “c” file and threatened to 
smash through in the middle 
of the board with the lunge e4. 
Kasparov was obliged to fight 
back and meet this potential 
advance with an apparently 
weakening ■ thrust of his i 
pawn. : 

Karpov broke into the sev- 
enth rank with his rook, but at 
this stage the former 
champion's play slowed as he 
searched for a clear way to use 
his advantage. Black, formerly 
in disarray, regrouped and 
grandmasters were full of 
praise for Kasparov's elastic 
defensive manoeuvres. Three 
games have now been played 
for three draws. 

Soviet officials are im- 
pressed at the high level of 
public attention their players 
are attracting. They are con- 
sidering use of revolutionary 
British technology to relay the 
moves around the world dur- 


ing the second half of the 
match, which will take place 

in Leningrad.

Why women are 
left behind 

Women need to be en- 
couraged more to compete 
against men at chess, a world- 
ranked woman player said 
yesterday. 

Dr Jana Miles, who ranks 
I3th in ihe International 
Chess Federation's table of 
women players, was speaking 
at the world championships 
where the 400-capacity audi- 
ence is predominantly male. 

Dr Miles, an anaesthetist, 
who- began playing chess in 
Prague at the age of 1 1, said 
women were not ai the same 
level as men in chess because 
of social conditioning. 

Dr Miles said the world 
chess rating system meant 
women entered the top ranks 
at a lower leveL but on the 
same scale as the men. 

"Women must be en- 
couraged. but unless they 
encounter good opposition — 
the top men players - they 
will only stagnate.” 

• At the end of round six in 
ihe British championship in 
Southampton, the lead was 
shared by Chandler. Plaskett 
and Mestel with five points 
each. 

In this round Plaskett was 
well held to a draw by Michael 
Adams in 32 moves. Chandler 
drew with Watson in 33 
moves and Mestel won an 
exciting game with the black 
pieces against Hebden in 25 
moves. 

Other results: Norwood 0; 
Speelman 1; Flear Vi; King ft; 
Condie ft; McDonald ft; Con- 
quest (fc Prasad I: Crawley ft; 
Kosten ft. 

In the British ladies 
championship Susan Arkeli is. 
leading with 5ft points ahead 
of Rani Homed and Christine 
Flear with four points each.

Brothers 
shot 

by Army 

Two teenage brothers shot 
by a soldier while being driven 
in their father's car in Co 
Tyrone were said to be poorly 
in hospital yesterday. 

Mrs Elizabeth Rainey, an 
aunt of the two boys, Clifford 
Rainey, aged 13, and bis 
brother Raymond, . aged 18. 
said the family accepted the 
shooting was as accident 

The brothers were being 
driven by their father near the 
strongly Republican village of 
POmeroy on Saturday when 
the car was struck by several 
bullets. Both boys were shot in 
the legs; Clifford was also 
badly hurt in one hand. They 
underwent emergency surgery. 

Neither the police nor the 
Army would comment yes- 
terday but a family friend said 
their father had been told a 
gun, set to automatic fire, was 
accidentally discharged by a 
soldier jumping a ditch. 

About three hours after the 
shooting and again, some five 
hours later, other Army pa- 
trols in the area were fired 
upon by terrorists. Several 
rounds were fired at them and 
on one occasion troops fired 
back twice. There were no 
reported casualties. 

In Londonderry, Spencer 
Road, the main thoroughfare 
of the largely Protestant 
Waterside district, has been 
dosed to traffic by the RUC. 

Traders claim the closure — 
to all traffic except people 
having business in the area - 
will gravely affect business. 


Plea for 
the speech 
impaired 

By Thomson Prentice : 
Extra help for more than 
two million people who suffer 
from speech handicap in Brit- 
ain is urgently needed, accord- 
ing to the results of a survey 
published today. * 
Previous research has 
underestimated the number 
who suffer. Vocal (Voluntary 
Organizations Communica- 
tion and Language), which 
represents 29 charities, says. 

The survey of medical lit- 
erature, was carried out by 
specialists in Bristol. 

It says that a better nation- 
wide system of gathering 
information about such con- 
ditions is essential if the 
quality of National Health 
Service planning is' to 
improve.

Call for attack on parasite 


Cat fleas can kill, says scientist 


The common cat : flea, 
looked npoa as no more than 
an irritation, is a potential 
killer, according to a leading 
aotbority on fleas. 

New research has shown 
that the flea’s ability to carry 
and transmit disease has been 
severely underestimated. So, 
too, has its debilitating and 
sometimes deadly effect oa the 
animals on which it lives and 

feeds. . 

Dr Bernice William* of the 
Medical Entomology Centre 
at Cambridge University, be- 
lieves the flea can also pass on 
the rodent diseases of bubonic 
plague and marine typhus 
from infected animats to 
humans. 


It is also thought possible 
mat the flea has a role in 
t^dsmifttog feline leukaemia 
roro-the cat version of 
AIDS. 

Dr Williams is calling for a 
mil-scale attack on the para- 
site using a new compound 
called Methoprene. 

The substance interferes 
with the flea s natural cycle of 
develop ment and is not as 
pfmfol to animals, and 
humans as conventional 
ntsectiodes. 

She is angry about “mis- 
cowepnons about die flea in 
bio logical and veterinary text- 
looks as well as learned 
scie ntific papers”. 

Writing in Nett Scientist 
she says that one of the more 


the irritation of bites and could 1 . « 
develop a n a emia Tapeworms 
be acquired through 
swallowing fleas carrying .1 
tnpeworm cysts. Fleas can also 
pass on feline gastric enteritis. 

Fleas were thought to be - 
relatively harmless until 
American scientists disco v- . 
wed their ability to absorb 
dangerous micro-organisms. . 

Dr John Maunder, fsrowrty T. 
Sf London School of J 
HHpeae and Tropical Medi- * 
gne and now a colleague of Dr 
WJbams at Cambridge, said 
implications of her re- 
search were 
horrendous”. 

While the main 
Britain was to cats 


'quite

It is thought fleas played a 

part in tftedeaths of several i ped ^ ST&to I:

In the bode, Family Por-

that, though many parish

continue to leach family val-

a whole has permitted itself a 
public image of moral 
woottiness. ... 

By silence, extravagant 
circumspection and occa-

ment, it has colluded with 
easier divorce, equivocated

dards so historically entwined 
with normal iamify structure. , 

■ Mrs Hennione Parker says., 
that government policies in 
personal income taxation and 


social security do not offer 
support, to the traditional 
family, but quite the reverse. 

Extra tax reBefe and benefits 
paid to families of broken 
marriages, to cohabiting cou- 
ples or to unmarried motfaeis 
put a premium on family 
break-up on de facto as op- 
posed to legal marriage. 

Tbe bias against the tra- 
ditional 'family, all the nunc j 
remarkable in a governing 
party which calls itsdf tbe 
party of the family, is in- 
creased by the Government's 
recent social security reform 
proposals, Mrs Parker says. 

By building on existing 
irrationalities, Mr Norman 
Fowler, Secretary of Stale for 
. Health and Social Security, 
merely makes matters worse. 

Mrs Valerie Riches writes of I 
scbools subverting family val- 
ues. She itemizes the com- 
plaints of parents about wrong 
sex education which suffers 
from amorality and contempt 
for parental wishes. 

Schools involved are no 
longer content to see them- 
selves as agents carrying out 
specialist educational tasks 
delegated to them by parents. 

Instead, they now teach 
values that are hostile to the 
family

Lord King 
denies 
seeking 
BBC job 

By Gavin Bell 
Aits Correspondent 

Lord King of Wannaby, 
chairman of British Airways, 
has denied that he is seeking 
the chairmanship of the BBC 

A brief statement by his 
spokesman yesterday said no 
approaches had been made to 
Lord King, nor had be made 
any approaches to the Gov- 
ernment for the job. 

Speculation arose that Lord 
King might become head of 
the BBC after the privatiza- 
tion of British Airways, which 
is expected next year, because 
Mr Stuart Young, the present 
chairman, is receiving treat- 
ment for a serious illness. Mr 
Young’s term of office expires 
in 1988. 

The corporation said yes- 
terday that Mr Young had 
been at his desk every working 
day for the past month, and 
that his treatment was due to 
be completed in the autumn. 

However, any candidature 
by Lord Kingis likely to be 
favoured by Downing Street 
and by Mr Norman Tebbit, 
the Conservative Pany chair- 
man, who recently created a 
media bias unit in the party 

Some BBC executives with 
private sector experience 
could also welcome the 
appointment of Lord King, 
but others are known to have 
misgivings about his close 
associations with the Conser- 
vative Party. 

The recent appointment of 
Lord Barnett, afoimer Labour 
MP. as vice chairman of the 
BBC was seen by some exec- 
utives as redressing the politi- 
cal balance which they 
perceived had tilted to the 
right under Mr Young and Sir 
William Rees-Mogg, the pre- 
vious vice chairman. 

An independent source in 
tbe corporation said the prin- 
cipal concern, should be 
whether the appointment of 
Lord King would be in the 
public interest. 

“How does one equate his 
successful management of an 
airline with a public 
broadcasting organization?

Mr Fleming left a message 
for the Spanish police saying 
he had flown to South Amer-

Movements of 
missing estate 
agent relived 

The police win today re- 
construct tbe movements of 
Miss S usanna Lara pi ugh, tbe 
soutb-west London estate- 
agent, on the day she vanished 
in Fulham a week ago. 

Senior officers are now very 
pessimistic about the fate of 
the woman and puzzled over 
her disappearance. 

Miss Lamplugh, aged 25, 
was last seen when she met a 
“Mr Kipper” outside a house 
which was for sale. 

Her FOrd Fiesta car was 
found a mile away near the 
Thames. It was unlocked, and 
her purse was stiO in it 
The police do not know if 
Miss Lamplugh was still with 
the car when it was left - or 
whether she had been taken 
somewhere else. 

There are several routes 
between the two places, along 
main roads or sidestreets, hut 
the information provided by 
witnesses so far allows only a 
short time between Miss 
Lamplugh showing the house 
to the mysterious client and 
the parking of the car. 

Hie road where the car was 
left is fairly quiet but nearby 
there is an (dd people's home, 
a petrol depot and a small 
sports centre. It is also over- 
looked by fiats. 

At the time the car* was 
abandoned the tide had been 
dropping from a high mark of 
about 18ft for nearly two 
horns. The Thames at that 
at has quite a lot of traffic 
. pleasure craft. 


Savage killing of girl

killer said last night. 

She was fund naked from 
the waist down aad had severe . 
farial injuries, Chief Insp 
Geoff Harrison said. *Tt was a 
very savage attack.” 

Miss Smdall, aged 21, of 
Cressington Avenne, 
Tranmere, Birkenhead, also 
wwked as a part-time barmaid 
at a public house in 
neighbouring Bgbingtou. She 

was either on her way home or

Vital statistics reveal 
a fast growing trend 


A . survey which last month 
revealed that women are 
growing has found that men, 
too, are getting bigger and 
taller. 

The survey, by the Hanssen 
Diet Helpline, shows that the 
average male is now 5ft 8fein 
and 11 stone 8Tb, compared to 
5ft 4in and 9 stone 4(b 200 
yearsago. 

It also shows that while 
women now average 5ft 3Wm. 
four inches more than 200 
years ago, and weigh 9 stone 
I lib, most would still prefer to 
lose weight. 

Three in four women think 
they are overweight and one 


in five thinks she is very 
overweight Only one in 20 
thinks she is the correct 
weight. 

The average female waist 
measures 29in while the av- 
erage hip measurement is 
39in. Seventy per cent . of 
women would like to lose one 
to four inches from the waist. 

The survey shows that al- 
most 40 per cent of men and 
32 per cent of women are 
overweight and that one in 
four women starts io diet at 
the age of IS. A quarter of 
women never exercise, al- 
though about 60 per cent own 
a leotard and a tracksuit.

discoveries from one of the 
most important archaeological 
sites m Europe. 

The details, published in 
this week's issue of Nature,

nal contain a radical revision, 
of the inferred fife of the

industry, protected .witbin care.^ witb eosmic rays, tbe amount 


which they were befieved to 
have thrived as a distinctive 
race of human beings. 

The description of a series 
of relatively advanced tools, 
and other artefacts associated 
with than, comes from discov- 
eries at Le Moustier, in the 
Dordogne Valley, south-west 
France. 

Neanderthals w ere thought 
to have become extinct more 
than 50,000 years ago. The 


and rock shelters, has long 
been, regarded as one of tbe 
most important records of 
their evolution. 

But confusion about dates 
led a group of archaeologists 
responsible for the new 
chronology to use the tech- 
nique of thenno-lmninesceace 
dating to measure the age of 
flint found at the remains of 

anripnf /ramp 


of energy released as beat is a 
me a sure of the lapse of time 
between their immersion in the

Tbe scientists were led by 
H ValhdaSj J M Geneste ami 
J L Joront, of the Centre Na- 
tional de la Recherche 
Scientifiqne, Paris, and 
J P Chadefle, of the Univer- 
sity of Bordeaux. 


The effect of their work is to 
show with greater precision 
the conditions in which the 
primitives lived between 
115,000 and 40,000 years ago. 

Writing in the same issue of 
Nature, Dr Paul Mellors, of 
the Department of Archaeol- 
ogy. Cambridge . University, 
said that die consequence of 
the work means that a re- 
analysis is needed of the 
climatic «wd human changes 
during the period. 


Greyhounds 
win backing 
to race ‘away’ 

The Government has 
backed a report from the 
Monopolies and Mergers 
Commission which calls for 
changes in the rules of the 
National Greyhound Racing 
Club to allow ft members the 
freedom to race greyhounds 
on independent tracks. 

The two-year investigation 
found the rules restricted com- 
petition and operated against 
the public interest. 

It took substantial evidence 
which alleged they were often 
broken by the racing dub's 
owners and trainers who ran 
greyhounds on independent 
tracks under different names. 

The racing club's 40 li- 
censed tracks dominate the 
sport, attracting more than 90 
per cent of the estimated five 
million annual attendance 
and the bulk of the £900 
million gambled. 

The commission's report 
says modification of the 
restrictive rules would pro- 
vide more legitimate grey- 
hound racing 
Mr Michad Howard, Min- 
ister for Consumer Affafts. has 
accepted the findings and 
recommendations and asked 
the Office of Fair Trading to 
discuss rule changes with the 
raring club. 


Sweet food 
suggested 
for better 
love life 

Oysters, asparagus and 
powdered rhinoceros horn are 
known the world over as 
aphrodisiacs, but for those 
who really want to revive a 
flagging sex life, scientists 
recommend developing a 
sweet tooth. 

Researchers at the Hebrew 
University in Jerusalem have 
discovered in experiments 
with rats that sexual activity 
can be “greatly enhanced" by 
feeding them sweetened 
liquids. 

They believe that a constit- 
uent in the sugar triggers the 
part of the brain which con- 
trols tbe sex drive. 

The brain is known to 
contain a chemical PEA. 
which acts as a stimulant and 
is supposed to be responsible 
for the "falling id love 
feeling”. 

There are also very small 
quantities of PEA in chocolate 
which could explain why they 
are so popular as a gift from 
those with amorous 
intentions. 

Record for 
jailhouse rock 

Inside Out, a non-touring 
band which includes three 
convicted murderers, is to cut 
its first record tomorrow after 
entertaining inmates at 
Wormwood Scrubs prison, 
west London, every Friday 
night for the past four years. 

A mobile recording studio, 
owned by Mr Richard 
Branson will be set up in the 
prison's recreation hall to 
record the song, described as 
“raunchy” by the group's 
founder, Mr David Bruce, a 
prison officer for 19 years. 

Sticking point 
for sweeps 

Children visiting a Derby- 
shire museum are being given 
the chance to find out what it 
was like being a Victorian 
chimney sweep, but they keep 
getting stuck. 

A 20 ft high mock-up of a 
Victorian chimney, complete 
with authentic cast iron fire- 
place has been built at the 
Sudbury Hall Museum of 
Childhood, in Derbyshire. But 
today's children are a lot 
plumper than the little hungry 
boys and girls in Dickens's day 
and the museum says several 
children had got jammed. 

2p cigarette 
rise expected 

^ Increased cigarette prices, 
adding probably 2p Ufa packet 
of 20 cigarettes, are expected 
to be announced by manufac- 
turers soon. 

The move comes after a 
decision by Imperial Tobacco, 
part of Hanson Trust, to 
increase the price of its cigars 
from August 18 because of 
increased costs.

Infectious disease labs 
face threat of cuts 
as outbreaks increase 

By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 


The number of public 
health laboratories which 
specialize in combatting infec- 
tious diseases is likely to be 
cut, in spite of a government 
pledge 10 months ago that the 
service would stay intact 

The plan is being pushed 
forward when senior officials 
in the service are worried 
about theirability to cope with 
increasing outbreaks of men- 
ingitis, Legionnaire's disease. 
Aids and food poisoning. 

Staff working at the 52 
regional units in England and 
Wales have been told that six 
of the laboratories will effec- 
tively be closed. An official 
decision will possibly be an- 
nounced in October. 

The Government last au- 
tumn abandoned cost-saving 
plans to hand over the run- 
ning of the service to local 
authorities, after its proposals 
were criticized by scientists, 
doctors and health officials. 

Since then, the Public 
Health Laboratory Service 
(PHLS) board has set up a 
working party to review the 
system. In a letter to staff. Dr 
Joseph Smith, director of the 
board, has said it has “pro- 
visionally concluded that it 
might need to withdraw from 
perhaps six of its laboratories'* 
and possibly create a new one. 

Dr Smith's letter says the 


service’s facilities “are now so 
stretched that public health 
will be put at risk unless the 
network oflaboratories is both 
strong and strategically 
distributed for ma ximum ef- 
ficiency and effectiveness.** 

The director of one of the 
laboratories, who asked not to 
be named, said yesterday: 
“The morale of scientists and 
doctors working in the service 
has been devastated by this 
proposaL I have no doubt this 
is only the first phase in the 
plan to reduce drastically the 
number _ of public health 
laboratories.** 

Another senior figure 
within the laboratory service 
said “The service has been 
cut to the botle in recent years 
and our resources have been 
stretched very thinly. This 
plan may lead to a more 
effective system, but many of 
us have serious doubts." 

Dr Dennis Jones, director of 
the service's laboratory in 
Manchester, said: “The 
planned changes are still at an 
early stage. They are an at- 
tempt to improve the ef- 
ficiency of the service and if 
they can be seen to be likely to 
achieve that goal they will be 
welcomed in the long run." 

• Health experts investigating 
an outbreak of meningitis are 
striving to calm parents in an 


area where the incidence of 
the infection is 14 times the 
national average. 

Later this week, Baronness 
Trumpington, junior health 
minister, and Sir Donald Acfa- 
eson, chief medical officer of 
the Department of Health, 
address a public meeting in 
Stroud, Gloucestershire, a dis- 
trict where three children have 
died of the disease and almost 
a hundred people have been 
affected in the past four years. 

The latest victim, a boy 
aged seven, died 10 days ago. 
Seventy-one other people 
have died of the disease so for 
in Britain this year, almost as 
many as in the whole of 1984. 

Mr Edward- Cooper, a 
paediatrician at Gloucester- 
shire Royal Hospital who has 
treated. more than a dozen 
cases, said: “Meningitis has 
not readied epidemic propor- 
tions in this area and the 
chance of a child contracting 
the disease is' still very 
remote." 

Dr Jones, whose regional 
unit has been helping to 
monitor the outbreak, said* 
“The organism causing this 
illness is circulating within the 
community ana is not 
attributable to a specific 
scouice. It is very difficult to 
control.”

Beekeepers’ organizations, 
claim it could take np to five 
years for the industry to 
recover to 1984 levels of 
250,000 hives. 

But Mr Gay, a physics 
master at Dover College dur- 
ing the week and apiarist at

record harvest is due to his 
management techniques. 


He used a poBen substitute, 
comprising soybean floor, dry

crikmies last winter. 

He said the Dalian bee, .<4fuf

cellent nectar gatherer and 
breeder and will maintain a 
large brood area regardless of 
nectar flows until late summer.

British fruit growing: j, 

England’s garden 
changes to meet 
forefen challenge 



filAIL 

THE DA11Y PtANEC?u»y 1986 




The -garden of England is 
not what it was. While many 
of the hop fields where East 
Enders used to spend wonting 
holidays have long since been 
replanted with wheat, the old 
orchards are being grubbed up 
and replaced, if at all, by 
plantations of new trees, too 
dffny and close to the ground 
to be grazed by sheep. , . 

The traditional orchard is 
no longer economic. The cost 
of s easo nal labour is such that 
using ladders to pick fruit 
from high branches is prohib- 
itively expensive. . . 

Conventional varieties take 
two or three times as long to 
mature as the new dwarf 
strains. They occupy more 
space, do not yield as prohn- 
caliy, lake longer to spray and 
prune and — particularly im- 
portant in the case of cher- 
ries- cannot be effectively 
protected from birds. 

But the other reason for the 
disappearance of the orchards 
is that growers have simply 
been unable to compete with 
imports. 

" Not oifly is it cheaper and 
easier to grow fruit in Medi- 
terranean countries and in 
California but, at least until 
recently, the quality of im- 
ported fruit was superior and 
it was marketed more effec- 
tively. 

A new threat has been posed 
by the entry of Spain into the 
EEC 

Spanish growers are hoping 
to dominate the European 
market, but they are expected 
to concentrate, at first, on 
tomatoes and other veg- 
etables. They also plan to 
produce strawberries and, per- 


haps, kiwi fruit on a large scale. 

They may. however, find 
themselves in difficulties if 
and when the EEC imposes 
tighter rules on pesticides 
which, at present, they use in 
large quantities. 

But it is not all bad news. 
Because of the shortness of the 
English season, the market 
anyway has to rely on imports 
for a large part of the year. 

Moreover, year-round 
availability of good quality 
fruit in the shops helps to 
boost demand generally. The 
British still eat less fresh fruit 
and vegetables than most 
other Europeans, but 
consumption is on the 
increase. 

There are also some success 
stories on the home front. 
English apple growers have 
recovered a large part of the 
market they lost during the 
1970s when they looked like 
being buried by an avalanche 
of French Golden Delicious. 

The home-grown straw- 
berry industry is second in 
importance only to apples, 
and growers appear to have 
overcome lapses in quality 
and continuity of supply. - 

English raspberries, during 
their regrettably short season, 
are probably the best m the 
world and there is still a large, 
unfilled demand. 

Peaches and nectarines can 
be grown successfully by ama- 
teur gardeners along south- 
feeing walls, but ' an open 
orchard would not survive a 
typical English spring and 
summer. 

Tomorrow: Research under 
threat 


Reading 
between 
the lines 

By Trndi McIntosh 
- People should nse handwrit- 
ing analysis more to assess 
behaviotrraud personality, 
according to Mis Diane Simp- 
son, a leading graphologist 
- To hdp Britain's millions of 
letter writers, . Mrs Simpson 
has written a guide called 
Your Handwriting And You. 

The 24-page booklet, 
commissioned by the Royal 
Mail, explains die bask sd- 
ence of.graplolegyand gives 
■examples of handwriting and 
its meanings. 

T Mrs Simpson, a grapholo- 
gist for 25 years, says the 
science can be used in recruit- 
ment, vocational gnidan 
medial diagnosis and histori- 
cal research. 

Most people unconsciously 
nse handwriting analysis from 
the .moment they receive 
Jetter, she says. _ 

. “They look at the envelope 
and can hurriedly tone in to 
the' writer's state of mind.** 
Writing rhawgw accord]

late a reaction, Mrs Simpson 

"l^ignatm-es reflect a writer's 
pubhc face and, she says, their 
meanings can be more reveal- 
ing than the rest of the writing. 

Beware of a signature which 
is very ornate compared to the 
rest of the writing because it 
reveals the author amid be a

personality. 

The width of individual 
letters also points to the

Test for 
mature 
students 

A study costing £65,000 is 
to. be carried out by the 
Department of Education and 
Science to assess & special 
interview system for the selec- 
tion of mature students with- 
out traditional qualifications 
for degree courses. 

The technique, developed at 
Harvard University and used 
for the recruitment of fighter 
pilots in the United States, 
uses principles of applied 
psychology to measure the 
candidates’ ability. ; 

Existing students -will be 
examined to identify the per- 
sonal characteristics which 
have led to their success. 
Admissions tutors at a sample 
of universities, polytechnics 
and colleges, will then be 
trained to look for those 
qualities in applicants. 

Similar techniques are being 
used increasingly in. com- 
merce and industry and the 
Manpower Services Commis- 
sion has expressed an interest 
in the system. 

Many potential students are 
thought to be denied higher 
education opportunities be- 
cause skills picked up outside 
the educational establishment 
cannot be counted. : ^ 

TKe Government is keen to 
tackle the problem- now be- 
cause demographic factors 
will lead to a one third drop in 
those aged 18 available for 
higher education in the next 
10 years. 

There is a pilot scheme in 
the United States, although 
none of those selected has yet 
gone far enough through the 
college system for the results 
id be dear. 

Mr George Walden, junior 
minister at the department, 
with responsibility for higher 
education, said: “Adults with- 
out formal qualifications per- 
form at least as wdl as 18- 
year-olds when accepted for 
degree level higher 
education."

Turin health service scandal 


Rome Charges have been 
brought against a nurse and 
two doctors in Turin after 
health service analysts were 
given samples of tea and 
produced reports which in- 
dicated that they were urine 
(Peter Nichols writes). 

Investigators, .took bottles 
containing lenjopade and tea 
to the', health' ' service lab- 
oratory as part of ait inquiry 
into the efficiency of analyses. 
Results included such 


phrases as “colour yellowish 
with normal properties and 
sediment". Each request made 
in the medical descriptions ac- 
companying the- bottles of 
“urine" was answered in a 
plausible way. 

Fears in Turin are less about 
charges of fraud and false 
testimony than that a whole 
.body of medical tests carried 
out by this and perhaps other 
laboratories may have been 
fabricated.

From Peter Nichols 
Rome 

Signor Betti no CraxTs new 
Government will undoubt- 
edly get a vote of confidence 
from the Senate tomorrow, 
but in an atmosphere of 
widespread pessimism. . 

- The partiamentary pro- 
gramme ts simple. Two days 
of delate are planned at the. 
Senate, followed by a similar 
formality in the Chamber of 
Deputies. . The new Govern- 
ment should have received 
full parliamentary approval by 
the end of this week, when 
politicians can start their 
holidays. 

The coalition is drawn from 
the same five parties as the 
outgoing Government, which 
was also- led by Signor Craxi, 
and the principal ministries 
- remain in the same hands. 

To the casual observer, 
nothing substantia] has hap- 
pened since June 27,' when 
Signor CraxTs first Govern- 
ment felL Yet Signor Ciriaco 
de-Mita, the national leader of 
the Christian Democrats, the 
country's largest - political 
party, was heard to comment: 
“We have all lost something." 

The Rome newspaper La 
Hepubbiica commented yes- 
terday that the way the poli- 
ticians behaved in forming the 
new Government "in fact' 
marked the end of the first 
republic”. ■ 

The Communist opposition 
had its own particular com- 
plaint public impatience with 



Signor Craxi: Fall paiiia- 
mentary approval expected, 
the behaviour of government 
politicians has not been ex- 
pressed in the form this time 
of a protest from the Cora- 
munist ranks, and so the 
opposition, like the gov- 
ernmental parties, had proved 
incapable . of fulfilling its 
proper constitutional tasks. 

The principal complaint is 
that the 34 days of negotiation 
and intrigue woe carried out 
in a vacuum where public 
Opinion had no effect. This, 
-the leading pessimists daim, 
means that a break between 
public opinion and the poli- 
ticians is now more complete 
than ever before. 

The parties bad no quarrel 
about the form ofgovemment 
the country required, because 
they saw no alternative to the 
five-party coalition. But they 
quarrelled violently about its 
leadership. The result is a pact 


on leadership try which Signor 
Craxi, a Socialist, will in 
March hand ova the prime 
minister's job to a Christian 
Democrat. 

This change ought, if politi- 
cal ideologies mean anything, 
to marie a substantial change 
in the government of the 
country. 

There is no suggestion that 
the handover might be pre- 
ceded by an election. Indeed, 
any talk of elections has been 
marked by assertions that the 
country could not at the 
moment afford the distraction 
of an election which would in 
any case probably give the 
country's rulers no clear in- 
dication of what public opin- 
ion wants: elections here tend 
to show very little change in 
voting strengths. 

Whatever the dhnaie surr- 
ounding the formation of this 
Government* it is expected to 
have to deal promptly with a 
problem of high importance. 
President Cossiga is under- 
stood to have prepared a letter 
to the Prime Minister asking 
him to take up the question of 
who would be responsible for 
conducting militmy counter- 
measures in the face of 
aggression. 

The constitution is vague 
on the point, and recent 
tension in the area— including 
the two Libyan missiles fired 
at the Italian island of Lam- 
pedusa — has given an un- 
expected reality to the 
problem. 



Mrs Hiroko Yoshizaki, aged 35, and 
ber daughter MUtiko, aged nine, walking 
hand-in-hand post Japan Air lines 
officials at a memorial service in 
Uenomiira in Japan y esterd a y marking 
the first anniversary of the world's worst 

single-aircraft crash. 

-The Boeing president, Mr Frank 
Shronte, spoke briefly at the service, 
making his first appearance before the 
families of the 520 people killed in the 


disaster last year near Uenomiira, a 
remote central Japanese village north- 
west of Tokyo (AP reports). 

Mrs Yoshizaki and her daughter— two 
of four people who survived the crash — 
attended the service, together with about 
1,700 relatives of the victims. An off-duty 
JAL stewardess and a girl aged 12 who 
also survived did not attend. 

Village children joined hands with 
about 100 chOdren related to the crash 


victims to nnvefl a 363ft granite monu- 
ment, made of two symmetrical sections of 

a cone symbolizing hands dasped in 
prayer. 

The monument, on the side of a small 
hill in tire village centre, about five miles 
from- the crash site, faces the ridge of the 
5.408ft Mt Osutaka, where JAL flight 
123, on a domestic run from Tokyo to 
Osaka, plummeted after losing control 
ova Sagwni Bay, sooth of Tokyo. 


Iran gives 
boost to 
Soviet ties 

Tehran (Reuter) — An Ira- 
nian delegation led by the 
Deputy Foreign Minister for 
Economic and International 
Affairs, Mr Muhammad Jav- 
ad Larfiani has gone to Mos- 
cow for political and econo-; 
mic talks, saying relations 
with the Soviet Union were 
taking “a positive trend". . 

The national news agency, 
Irna, quoted Mr Larijani as 
saying before leaving yes- 
terday that bilateral relations 
and regional an d inter national 
affairs would be discussed. 

. Mr Larijani said oil, gas and 
other fields of technology were 
possible spheres of co-opera- 
tion betwen the two countries. 

Tehran-Moscow ties have 
improved since strains oc- 
curred in 1983, when the 
I ranian Government cracked 
down on the Soviet-backed 
Tudeh Communist Party and. 
expelled 18 Soviet diplomats. 

. Last February, the First 
Deputy Foreign Minister, Mr 
Georgy Kornienko, led the 
highest-ranking Soviet delega- 
tion to visit Tehran since the 
1979 Islamic revolution. 


FBI investigating possible 
intelligence leak to Chile 


FtomJVfichael Binyoo, Washington 


The Federal Bureau of In- 
vestigation is trying to find out 
whether Senator Jesse Helms 
or any of his aides leaked 
sensitive US intelligence in- 
formation to the Chilean Gov- 
ernment. congressional and 
Administration sources told 
The New York Times at the 
weekend. 

The papa said the inquiry, 
which began last week, would 
concentrate on whether the 
Chileans were tipped off about 
a covert US intelligence-gath- 
ering operation. The Senate 
select committee asked for the 
investigation after hearing ev- 
idence from the State Depart- 
ment that there had been a 
leak to Chile. 

Senator Helms, a maverick 
right-wing Republican from 
North Carolina, paid a contro- 
versial visit to President Pino- 
chet last month, and denounc- 
ed US policy towards Chile. 

His visit angered the State 
Department and embarrassed 
the Reagan Administration, 
which has , begun to take a 
tough line with the Pinochet 
Government. 


The alleged leak has angered 
the CIA because it threatened 
the agency's ability to gather 
information on .Chile, 
unidentified sources told the 
newspaper. Spokesmen for the 
CIA and FBI refosed to com- 
ment on the report. 

Senator Helms has vig- 
orously denied that he leaked 
any information. “The State 
Department and the Central 
Intelligence Agency are con- 
stantly trying to discredit me, 
and they’re not going to be 
able to do it," he said. 

He raid if they wanted to 
play games of intimidation he 
would meet them "in the 
middle of the field". Congres- 
sional sources, however, have 
reportedly pointed to a 
“Helms connection" with the 
leak. Although the senator is 
not a member of the intelli- 
gence committee, he is given 
sensitive information on Chile 
because he chairs the Western 
'Hemisphere sub-committee of 
the foreign relations commit- 
tee. He has repeatedly sup- 
ported the Pinochet Govern- 
ment because of its strong 


anu-commumsm. 

The Reagan Administration 
appears to be moving closer 
towards outright sanctions 
against Chile because of its 
human rights record. Wash- 
ington has expressed oppo- 
sition to further development 
loans to Chile. Mr Elliott 
Abrams, Assistant Secretary 
of State for Latin American 
Affairs, told Congress he 
would oppose a new loan by 
the World Bank because of 
President Pinochet's failure to 
move towards democracy. 

In Santiago a Harvard 
Medical School team and a 
Republican Party lawyer vis- 
ited imprisoned opposition 
leaders on Saturday, and de- 
nounced persistent human 
rights abuses by the military 
Government. The two doctors 
were sent there to look into the 
detention of leaders of Chile's 
medical association and to 
help one of the two young 
people badly burnt in anti- 
government demonstrations a 
month ago. The other, a US 
resident, died after reportedly 
being set alight by soldiers. 


Nigerian 

report 

absolves 

Shagari 

Lagos (Reuter) - A govern- 
ment report has disclosed de- 
tails of corruption in Nigeria 
unda the administration of 
the ousted civilian President, 
Mr Shchu Shagari, involving 
millions of dollars. 

The 107-page report details 
the findings of a judicial panel 
which investigated the cases of 
1,017 people detained by the 
previous military Govern- 
ment, which toppled Presi- 
dent Shagari at the end of 
1983. 

They included Mr Shagari 
and his deputy. Mr Alex 
Ekwueme. who were cleared 
of corruption but banned from 
holding public office or engag- 
ing in political activity for the 
rest of their lives. 

The decision to clear them 
of wrongdoing has been at- 
tacked by critics, who feel they 
should bear moral responsibil- 
ity for the misdeeds .of their 
government, even if there was 
no legal evidence against 
them. 

At the other end of the scale, 
a man arrested for illegal pos- 
session ol a single 10-naira 
note (previously worth £9.3), 
dating from before Nigeria's 
April 19S4 currency change, 
has been released but ordered 
to stand trial. 

Other cases throw light on 
the extent of financial mal- 
practice under the Shagari 
Government, which the 
military overthrew because of 
allegations of widespread corr- 
uption and inefficiency. 

One contractor, who is still 
detained and will be tried, was 
said to have been awarded 
contracts totalling nearly 42 
million naira (£39.3 miftion) 
to supply goods to the 
Government’s Youth Service 
Organization. 

The report raid the con- 
tracts were irregularly award- 
ed, were not fulfilled and were 
neva intended to be carried 
out 

The panel ordered further 
investigation, and possible 
prosecution, in the cases of 
two men “suspected of involv- 
ement in a grand plan tq trans- 
fer 112 million naira outside 
Nigeria" in breach of ex- 
change control regulations. 

A forma manager of the 
Central Bank's foreign ex- 
change department is to be 
prosecuted for “economic 
sabotage" because of his al- 
leged involvement in transfer- 
ring 4 million naira abroad 
through a private company he 
owned.

South Africa; Zambian leader proposes co-ordinating team i Tutu appeals to Japan # Homeland celebrates 

. _ .... . no j 


Kaunda wants That cher to play no part 

- — — ^ . -r.- 


By Mark Dowd 

President Kenneth Kaunda 
of Zambia yesterday launched 
his opening gambit, hours in 
advance of the summit tails, 
by calling for an elected team 
of three Commonwealth lead- - 
ers to co-ordinate a strategy of 
sanctions against South Af- 
rica. 

At a morning meeting of the 
Commonwealth and Dip- 
lomatic Writers* Association, 
Mr Kaunda insisted, however, 
that Mrs Thatcher should play 
no part -in- helping to im- 
plement any scheme, which 
couldindude Commonwealth 
countries, the EEC, the United 
States and Japan, on account 
of her views on the subject. 

His own preference would 
be for the Prime Ministers of 
Australia, Canada and India 
to take' responsibility because 
of their superior commitment ; 
to punitive measures. ■ 

He said: “I am finding it 
increasingly difficult to sit at 
these summits with my sister 
Margarei Thatcher, who says 
‘don't apply sanctions because 
we need platinum and gold 
from that country*. 

“I find >l impossible to see 
the Commonwealth continu- 
ing arid pretending that all is 
going well when one. of its 
leading figures believes that 
platinum is more important 
than human beings.** j 

Describing the Western 
stance as hypocritical, he said 
there had been occasions. in 
the past when both Britain, 
and America had- imposed 
sanctions on such countries as 
Argentina, Cuba, Libya and 
the Soviet Union “without 
regard as to whether they 
would work or not**. 

South Africa today was 
being run by “Nazis**, he said. 

Britain is a country which has 
successfully opposed Nazis in 
the past and it was time for her 
to do so again. 

President Kaunda was pre- 
vented from delivering his

and therefore he would have-

he expected from the summit

Thatcher would be dictating,

US watches and waits 


From Michael Binyon, Washington 

The Reagan Administration Bonn, and has had a direct 

report from Sir Geoffrey 
Howe ofr the Foreign Sec- 
retary’s visit to South Africa.' ' 

A senior US official has said 
that the talks covered the type

Commonwealth derisions on 
measures against South Af- 
rica, but is waiting for the 
return from Europe of Mr 
Chester Crocker, the Assistant 
Secretary of State for African 
Affaire, to see what co-ordina- 
tion is possible with US allies. 

Mr Crocker has been having 
talks in London. Brussels and 


that could be adopted by the 
US in co-ordination with Eu- 
rope. He insisted that the

not ruled out further steps. .

ered to listen to onr conversa- 
tion nodded vigorously. I had 
asked for their reaction to the 
assassination in a car bomb 
explosion on Tuesday of Mr 
Piet Ntnli, Minister of the 
Interior in the local tribal 
administration. 

Their sentiments are un- 
doubtedly widely shared in 
KwaNdebele, a sprawling ru- 
raf shun of shacks, shanties 
and smalllirick-hnts^pme 70 
miles north-east of Pretoria, 
where, news of Mr Ntalfs 
demise "feus celebrated with 
and other 
ofspohtaneoos rejoicing. 

’ Ntnli headed the much- 

feared Imbokhoto, a rigflante 
squad held responsible for the 
killing of many people op- 
posed to the trihal administra- 
tion and to “independence.** 
At the time of his death, his 


alleged involvement in murder, 
assault torture, theft, and 
corruption was being invest- 
igated. 

The device of “indep- 
endence" is used by Pretoria to 
weaken, or gHmihate al- 
together, the dann of large 
numbers of blacks to full 
citizenship and political rights 
in South Africa outside the 
homelands, which occupy less 
than 14 per cent of the total 
land mass of the country. 

Among those with a motive 
for killing Mr Ntuli are the 
outlawed African National 
Congresvwhkb bitterly op- 


reign of terror of Mr Ntuli and 
his vigilantes, widely seen as a 
foretaste of the kind of role 
that could be expected after 
“independence," did as much 
as anything rise to stir up 
popular opposition to Pre- 
toria’s schemes. 

Mr NtidTs car exploded 
within mantes of his (faring it . 
out of the heavily-guarded 
admini st r ative compound in 
Siyabnswa, where only mem-

Government's own plans for

It is certainly true tint the 


may now be easier to woo the 
chiefs back info the fold. 
Opposition to it is now so 
widespread, they believe, tint 
the Government will be forced 
at least to postpone “ind- 
ependence," which is fixed for 
next December 11. 


after a special 
meeting of the KwaNdebele 
Government and tribal chiefs 
last Friday, Mr Fame Ma- 
hlang n, the homriaod's Min- 
ister of Information, said the 
mood had been one not of 
“rejection (of independence) 
but of the need to inform the 
people". 

In an interview earlier in the 
day, however, Mr Mahlangu 
admitted that the chiefs were 
“not quite happy" about in- 
dependence. He said that tire 
homeland's legislative assem- 
bly, which has 76 members of 
whom only 16 are directly 
elected, would meet on Thurs- 
day to discuss the issue. 

The assembly, be added, 
would also endorse a decision, 
taken earlier by the Kwa- 
Ndebele Cabinet, to disband 
the Imbokhoto, undoubtedly a 
popular move. This derision, 
Mr Mahlangu claimed, was 
taken before Mr NtulTs death, 
but it had not been announced 
publicly. 

Serious unrest broke out in 
KwaNdebele at the start of the 
year when Pretoria announced 
the incorporation, against the 
wishes of most of its inhab- 
itants, of the Montse district of 
neighbouring Lebowa into 
KwaNdebele, in an attempt to 
make the latter a more viable 
unit prior to “independence.” 


Africa gives it a crucial role in 
the issue of sanctions, Bishop 
Desmond Tutu said yesterday 
during talks with Mr Wasuke 
Miyake, director-general . « 
the Foreign Ministry s Middle 
Eastern and African Affairs 
Bureau. 

Bishop Tutu said he told Mr 
Miyake that nations should 

take a moral stand on the issue 

rather than wait for others to 
take the lead. 

Mr Miyake said Japan 
wanted a concerted policy 
with other members of tne 
international co m m unity . on 
economic sanctions against 
Pretoria,’ a Kyodo News Ser- 
vice report said. 

Bishop Tutu said: “Al- 
though it is desirable for South 
Africa’s main trading partners 
to take a joint step, a decisive 
action take n by only one of 
them could have a major in- 
fluence." 

Japan has banned the ex- 
port of computers to South Af- 
rica, discouraged- the private 
sector from-importmg kruger- 
rands. and restricted cul tu ra l ,

changes. 

• HARARE: The former 
Rhodesian Prime Minister, 
Mr Ian Smith, whose rebel 
regime survived 15 years of 
world economic sanctions, 
— sa id - «: similar trade embargo 
on South Africa would serve 
only to unite whites there 
behind their Government. 

In an interview published 
yesterday in Zimbabwe's Sun- 
day Mail newspaper, Mr 
Smith said sanctions against 
Rhodesia had enabled the 
country -to diversify and ex- 
pand its economy -more than 
would have been possible 
without the embargo. 

Before sanctions were im- 
posed on Rhodesia in 1965, 
after it declared unilateral 
independence from Britain,

nessmen appeared set to op-

A woman bank employee 
held hostage for eight days by 
an unknown attacker demand- 
ing a 10 million franc (about 
£900,000) ransom from the 
bank, has been released, 
apparently unharmed. 

She was interrogated by 
police at the weekend, but 
tittle information has been 
released since her release late 
on Friday night. 

The drama started on July 
24 when the woman, Martine 
Pietri, aged 37, a secretary at 
the Worms Bank, was ab- 
ducted from her home in the 
early morning and taken to the 
bank, where her - abductor 
claimed be had planted explo- 
sives on her and demanded 10 
million francs. 

The man and his hostage 
escaped, without the money, 
before police arrived, and for 
eight days he sent messages 
demanding the ransom. 

On Friday the bank broad- 
cast a radio message that it 
would pay the . ransom if she 
w ere released before the end of 
the day. Bat police say that no 
ransom has been paid.

The Salt 2 debate 


Warning of $100bn weapons bill 


Fran Michael Binyon, Washington 


President Reagan's decision, 
renounce the Salt 2 arms 
control treaty could cost the 
United States $100 billion 
(£66.6 billion) for new nuclear 
weapons over the next 10 
years, the chairman of the 
House armed services 
committee said yesterday. 

Mr Les Aspin, an infl uential 
Democrat from Wisconsin 
and one of a growing number, 
of congressional critics of Mr 
Reagan's decision, said the 
price for scrapping the treaty 
“could be mind-boggling, not 
to mention wallet-tugging”. 

Mr Aspin released a paper 
prepared by the congressional 
budget office on the potential 
cost of exceeding Salt 2 mis- 


sile limits, and said research 
indicated that the lowest cost 
of matching a likely Soviet 
build-up would be about $27 
billion over 10 years. 

That would be the price of 
building up to 867 1 0- warhead 
MX missiles and deploying 
them in Mmuteman missile 
silos. 

“That's cheap,” he sa&L 
“It’s also a very unlikely 
response, given that Congress 
has already rejected the idea of 
deploying more than 50 MXs 
in existing silos where they are 
sitting ducks." 

A more likely answer would 
be to put MX missiles in 
superharoened silos, which 
could better withstand a So- 


viet attack. That would cost 
$100 billion. . . ■ 

The ‘ congressional study 
also puts the cost of deploying 
more Trident submarines at 
more than $110 billion. 

Mr Aspm said the Salt 
limits on Weapon launchers 
protected US forces from be- 
ing overwhelmed by huge 
numbers of Soviet missiles. - 

“Abandoning the .ceilings 
abandons the protection. 

Does tins Administration seri- 
ously want to leave such a 
legacy? Somebody over there 
better think through the im- 
plications of what they are 
threatening to do to us, . not to 
the Russians,” he said. 


Moscow reconnecting 
direct dial service 

By Christopher Walker in Moscow and Mary Dejevsky 


Alter a gap of almost four 
years, the Soviet authorities 
are starting to - reintroduce 
direct dial telephone facilities 
for international calls, at a 
selective basis. •

about that is on holiday," a 
spokesman fold Tile Times. 

There was jest as fittie 
information forthcoming in 
London. A spokesman for the 
Foreign Office said he knew 
nothing about even the partial 
restoration of direct dialling.

The BBC is one of die small 
number of Western news 
organizations which have- re-:

enables its two correspondents

Doubts about an . East' 
Berliner’s “dummy run” es- 
cape story strengthened -in 
WestGeraiafiy yesterday. Of- 
ficial sources said the: story 
was a**siBy. season” fantasy or . 
a sniart public refationsex-: 
eicise tiy tconniladal escape 
helper. 

Most Sunday newspapers 
chose to all but ignore the 
story.' They reported only 
briefly the East German news- 
agency charge on Saturday , 
that it was a “lie from atoz”. 

But one paper found several , 
boles in ’ the tale refated by '. 
Herr Heinz Braun, aged 48, at. 
a press conference in West' 
Beran last Friday. 

Herr Braun claimed be had 
driven to freedom two days 
earlier after disguising himself 
and three shop dummies as 
Russian soldiers* 

Herr Braaa.said the dum- 
mies fooled East German bor- 
der guards completely as be 
drove a Lada estate car re- . 
sprayed in military olive green 
through no fewer 'than four 
checkpoints at the Invafiden- 
strasse crossing. 

His story was treated with 
scepticism on West German 
television- on-Friday night, al- 
though -newspapersr on-Satur-

Yesterday the Sonritag Ex- 
press in Bonn carried the front 
page headline “The escape — a 
giant swindle?”. It said: “West 


-German insiders are sceptical: 
Something about the story 
smelts”. 

The paper quoted an un- 
identified “border expert” as 
saying: '^Thc escape story is 
only purely theoretically pos- 
sible. The EastGerman guards 
let through Russian miHtaiy 

vehicles' every day. It can hap- 

peri that after a long shift they 
don't Iqok. so closely. 

“But Rusoan -sentries are. 
also always in the background. 
They: are informed when a

Australia 
faces loss 
of wheat 
exports 

From Stephen Taylor 
Sydney 

An Australian parlia- 
mentary delegation has re- 
turned from Washington chas- 
tened by its inability to 
dissuade the Reagan Admin- 
istration from invading Aus- 
tralian markets with subsid- 
ized wheat 

The mission's Mure will 
cost Australian producers an 
estimated £80 million-£160 
million in lost sales to the 
Soviet Union, a leading cus- 
tomer for Australian gram. 

It could also lead to a surge 
of anti-American feeling, and 
will almost certainly cause 
renewed calls for US military 
bases here to be used as 
bargaining chips in future 
disputes with Washington. 

Mf John Kerin, Minister of 
Primary Industry, who led the 
delegation, foresaw further 
difficulties between the US 
and Australia over grain. 

He said President Rjeagsm’s 
d c d aon to <»ll 4 milHnn 
tonnes of wheat to Russia was 
not as bad as the original 
Senate proposal to extend the 
Export Enhancement Pro- 
gramme to sales to both the 
Soviet Union and China, but 
he believed there were other 
deals in the pipeline which 
would hit Australian exports. 

Mr Bob Hawke, the Prime 
Minister, had personally ap- 
pealed to President Reagan on 
toe issue. 


Moonlighters tax 
aims to boost 
Greek job figures 

From Mario Modiano, Athens 


Greeks who have more than 
one job are to be taxed so 
heavily on their extra' income 
that they wiD eventually give 
up their second post in favour 
of toe unemployed. 

This Is one of a series of 
radical measures announced 
by the Socialist Government. 
The controv er sial d ecision , 
which could affect a large 
section* of tiie country's 
economically active population 
of 3.7 million, is designed to 
relieve unemployment, which 
is officially rated at more than 
$ per cent. 

Bat critics of the measure 
argue that it will not stop 
Greeks from moonlighting. In- 
stead, it will stop them from 
declaring the extra revenue to 
the tax authorities, further 
boosting the thriving black 
economy. 

The Government, caught 
between growing unemploy- 
ment and toe need to attract 
investors and increase compet- 
itiveness, proposed these new 
measures at a meeting last 
week of the National Council 
for Development and Plan- 
tong, whim bring s together 
toe Government, employers' 
associations and trade onions. 

Perhaps toe most important 
stimuli for Greek business 
were derisions to consider on 
merit applications for mass 
lay-ofis by firms In financial 
difficulty, and to introduce 
productivity deals ' 


Other measures include a 
ban on toe employment of 
pensioners in toe public sector, 
while those over the age of 60 
will be offered hatf-day/half- 
pay deals imtS their retire- 
ment without loss of pension 
rights. Greek industry will 
alto be allowed to work fourth 
shifts provided die shifts are 
manned by newly-hired 
workers. 

Greek officials are con- 
cerned at die rise in unemploy- 
ment, which is difficult to 
check under the Government's 
current austerity programme, 
aimed at cutting bade deficits 
aBd inflation. The Opposition 
blames the the Socialists for 
their former largesse, which 
priced Greek products out of 
world markets. 

Last week, in an effort to. 
reduce public deficits, the 
Government increased tele- 
phone, postal and electricity 
rates as well as airline and rail 

tickets by 15 per cent Deficits 
in public enterprises and util- 
ities add to tiie country’s large 
foreign debt 

The new measures, however, 
are not likely to be im- 
plemented before next Octo- 
ber. The Socialists, mindful of 
the political cost involved, 
prefer to unleash their pro- 
gramme after municipal elec- 
tions on October 12, which will 
be their first popularity test 
since winning a second term in 
June last year. 


Aquino to 
axe books 
written by 
Marcos 

From Keith Dalton 
Manila 

President Aquino wants 
school library shelves to be 
emptied of books written by 
ex-President Ferdinand Mar- 
cos, which give a “Mancosian” ' 
interpretation of modem Phil- 
ippines history and politics. 

“Our people have to un- 
learn what Marcos taught 
them about politics and gov- 
ernment,” Mrs Aquino told 
delegates from the Inter- 
national Democratic Union, 
which monitored the presi- 
dential election last February. 

Already under review are 
school textbooks, written by 
Marcos-selected authors, that 
justify toe eight-year impos- 
ition of martial law from 1972. 

During his 20 years in office 
Mr Marcos claimed auth- 
orship of more than a dozen 
books, which were sent to 
schools and presented to visit- 
ing officials and journalists. 

But popular suspicion that 
they were ghost written by spe- 
cialist writers was confirmed 
by presidential palace officials 
in February, shortly after Mr 
Marcos fled after a civilian- 
backed military revolt and 
settled in Hawaii. 

Mrs Aquino said she would 
meet newspaper publishers, 
editors and educators soon to 
discuss her plans for “a re- 
fresher course on democracy, 
especially on toe rights and 
duties of each citizen .

SPECTRUM 


All the President’s soldiers? 


, As America builds up its elite anti-terrorism 
- forces, critics fear a concentration of power 


" in the White House. David Leppard reports 




f ■> 4". • AtyKijr > 


£Wj” • - J: ■ ; 



hen Palestinian 
guerrillas hijack- 
ed an Egyptair 
passenger jet 
containing sev- 
eral United 
States qitizens last November, a 
t&am of American undercover 
specialists was ordered to Malta, 
where the plane was grounded. 
-The counter-terrorist officers 
from the Special Operations Forces 
(SOF) and agents from the CIA 
were to conduct reconnaissance in 
pi'eparation for a full-scale landing 
ofrescue forces. 

' The team boarded an air force 
transport plane but the plane was 
unable to get off the ground. They 
Switched to a second aircraft — "but 
this one broke down too. By the 
time a third plane left the runway, 
the mission was already redundant: 
Egyptian paratroopers had stormed 
the airliner and 60 people lay dead. 

It was the bloodiest aeroplane 
hijacking in history. As one senior 
government official told The 
Times, the American operation 
“was just one fiasco after another. 
It was comical." 

- The sioiy highlights two aspects 
of a critical new phase in US 
national security policy. First, it 
indicates that the Reagan admin- 
istration is more prepared to 
deploy its Special Operations 
Farces than any other US govern- 
ment since the late 1960s. Mora 
important, it demonstrates that 
there is a deep malaise within 
American special operations and 
that the longer this continues, the 
less effective becomes the 
administration's much-vaunted 
desire to deal with international 


terrorism. 

The Special Operations Forces 
are a collection of elite commando 
units which specialize in hostage 
rescue and other counter-terrorist 
arid counter-insurgency missions. 
They are America's equivalent of 
Britain's Special Air Service and 
Special Boat Service, but much 
larger - and strategically more 
important. 

it was SOF units from the Green 
Berets and Rangers which suffered 
13- of the 19 American fatalities 
when spearheading the 1983 US 
invasion of Grenada. And last year 
SOF hijack specialists from the 
Delta Force based at Fort Bragg, 
North Carolina, were airlifted three 
limes to deal with the Egyptair, 
Achille Lauro and TWA hijacks in 
tfie-Mediterranean. 

Since mid-July, SOF troops, 
probably on detachment from the 


cocaine processing plants in the 
Bolivian jungle; other units are 
being used as part of mobile 
military training teams to aid 
America's allies in Central Amer- 
ica and elsewhere against com- 
munist-inspired insurgencies. 

This renaissance in special op- 
erations can be traced back to the 
bungled attempt to rescue the 42 
American hostages held by Iranian 
revolutionaries at the US embassy 
in Tehran in 1980. That operation 
took more than six months and 
about $250 million to execute, yet 
it still failed to achieve its objec- 
tive, ending with the deaths of eight 
US servicemen, most from the Air 
Force's 8th Special Operations 
Squadron. 

That disaster heralded a national 
humiliation. Shortly afterwards 
Ronald Reagan replaced Jimmy 
Carter in the While House: among 
his mandates was one to restore 
America's special operations and 
intelligence-gathering capabilities. 

Since then. America’s very own 
guerrilla army has undergone an 
unprecedented peacetime build- 
up. Its budget has shot up from 
$4*11 million (about £300 million) 
in 1981 to a projected $1,600 
million (more than £1.000 million) 
for 1 987. By 1990. active duty- SOF 
personnel will total 21.600, almost 
double the 1981 figure. 

Although these statistics repre- 
sent barely 0.5 per cent of the 
projected military budget for 1987, 
they conceal the enormous empha- 
sis which the Reagan administra- 
tion is placing on the SOF to 
counter terrorism and communist- 
backed insurgencies worldwide. 

Caspar Weinberger, the US De- 
fence Secretary, told Congress that 
the strategic forces represented 
“one of this Administration's high- 
est priorities". The forces were

Tactical support Seatox 
underwater special warfare craft 


originally conceived to co-ordinate 


Army's Southern Command post 

their 


in Panama, have been flying 
Blackhawk helicopters in the joint 
US-Bolivian operation to wipe out 


with conventional military forces 
in full-scale wars, conducting 
reconnaissance and harassing ac- 
tions and giving support to local 
resistance groups. 

Recently two factors have led to 
a dramatic change in their tactical 
role. For a variety of reasons, 
prospects of US involvement in a 
hilly-fledged military conflict have 
diminished markedly; secondly, 
the rise in international terrorism 
has led military analysts to coin an 
ominous new phrase in the lexicon 
of war. “low-intensity conflict". 

One such analyst is Senator 
William S. Cohen, a highly re- 
spected Republican who sits on 
two powerful Senate committees, 
the armed services committee and 
the select committee on intelli- 
gence. He says: “A new form of 
warfare has emerged, a form of 


warfare that we have not properly 
understood, and that we have not 
effectively deterred. This war takes 
the form of terrorist attacks and 
guerrilla insurgencies.'' 

To Senator Cohen and others 
like him. the revitalization of 
America’s special operations offers 
an effective response. With Senator 
Sam Nunn, he is sponsoring a Bill 
to improve the co-ordination of US 
counter-terrorism policy by re- 
organizing the command structure 
of SOF. 

Senator Cohen argues that the 
problem posed by low-intensity 
conflict cannot be met simply by 
throwing more money, men and 
weapons at it 

That there is a problem is 
evident from government studies 
of the Iran and Grenada missions, 
the two most high-profile SOF 
operations in recent years. The 
studies concluded that in both 
cases SOF effectiveness was seri- 
ously. hindered by appalling de- 
ficiencies in forward planning and 
communications. Worse still were 
the endemic rivalries that: pre- 
vailed —and still prevail — between 
the three arms of the military 
throughout which SOF units are 


dispersed (see box). The lack of any 
permanent unified command 
structure has meant that each time 
a crisis requiring SOF deployment 
arises, the Joint Chiefs of Staffhave 
to set up an ad hoc task-force 
composed of the separate service 
units. In situations where hours 
and often minutes can make the 
difference between the life and 
death of hostages, failure of co- 
ordination can prove dangerously 
time-consuming. 


S enator Cbhen's legisla- 
tion proposes to remove 
the plague of inter-ser- 
vice rivalry with a joint 
military oreanization 
for special forces, and 
creating a “co-ordinating board for 
low-intensity conflict" within the 
National Security Council. 

Pressure on the joint chiefs to 
compromise on their hitherto jeal- 
ously-guarded monopoly of SOF 
operations is also coming from the 
House of 'Representatives. 
Congressman Dan Daniel, chair- 
man of the readiness subcommit- 
tee of the house armed services 


committee, and Congressman Earl 
Hutto, chairman of the special 


operations panel, are hoping to add 
a provision to the 1987 Defence 
Authorization Bill to allow a 
National Special Operations 
Agency to be set up. 

Congressman Daniel's proposal 
is to detach all SOF units from 
their homes in the three military 
services and the Marines and 
create stearate new services. More 
radical is his suggestion that this 
new agency should have direct 
access to the national command 
authorities — the euphemism on 
Capitol Hill for the President (the 
US Commander-in-Chief) and the 
Defence Secretary. This proposal 
would have the extraordinary ef- 
fect of reducing the military's role 
to an advisory capacity, passing 
real control to the civilian 
leadership. 

The joint chiefs are not the only 
ones -voicing concern about 
Congress’s plans. Liberal critics 
note that, unlike the CIA, whose 
(trading is subject to congressional 
approval and whose covert opera- 
tions must be reported to the 
Congress and Senate intelligence 
committees, there are no similar 
requirements for SOF activities. 

The Cohen-Daniel proposals 


have set the alarm bells ringing 
among those who believe that the 
build-up presages a worrying wave 
of US covert operations in the 
Third World. Instead of dealing 
effectively with terrorism, they 
argue, SOF revitalization merely 
increases the risk of the US being 
dragged into another Vietnam. 

The threat to American national 
security from low-intensity conflict 
was summed up by George 
Shultz.the US Secretary of State, at 
a conference on special operations 
and unconventional warfare earlier 
this year."The ironic fact is that 
these new and elusive challenges 
[of terrorism and guerrilla insur- 
gencies] have proliferated in part 
because of our successes in deter- 
ring nuclear and conventional 
war", he said. “Our adversaries 
know they cannot prevail against 
us in either type of war. Low- 
intensity warfare is their answer to 
our conventional and nuclear 
strength. They hqpe the legal -and-, 
moral complexities of thestfitinds 
of challenges will ensnare us in our 
scruples and exploit- our humane 
inhibitions against applying force 
to defend our interests."

Flagship for the 



Cowes may get the 


glory, but Yachting 


Monthly , 80 years 


old, is closer to the 


heart of true sailors 


COWES WEEK? Those snotty 
vachiies in white bags, fit 
young gorillas in designer 
oilskins, and shrill .socialites 
longing for an invitation to the 
Royal Yacht Squadron Ball — 
those are not what yachting is 
really abouL 

As garish racers slid their 
go-fester stripes out towards 
Cowes Road on Saturday, an 
infinitely more graceful pro- 
cession was moving off down 
the River Orwell in 
Suffolk. There was the Alan, a 
1909 ketch: the Firefly, which 
has been in the same family 
for 52 years: a 1926 Hillyard 
design called Iskra, which has 
several Atlantic crossings un- 
der her belt: and five others, 
representing the five decades 
sinceL 

They too raced, but not in 
the spirit of Cowes. They had 
gathered together for a water- 
borne salute to one of the great 
unsung British institutions: 
Yachting Monthly magazine, 
which for 80 years has been 
the champion of the modest 
man and his boat. 

Lei the flashy and rapidly 
obsolescent racing machines 
zip round their Day-Glo 
advertising buoys oo the So- 
lent; the chummy procession 
down the Orwell will have 
drawn more interest from 
Yachting Monthly's loyal and 
muddy readers. And the 
crews, instead of sitting 
hunched neurotically over 
their winches, no doubt found 
time to admire the odd tern 
skimming over the water or 
brew a cup of tea between 
tacks. 

Yachting Monthly repre- 
sents all this. It is a phenom- 
enon in the ' sailing sub- 
culture. Its first edition bad 
Edward VII as “Yachtsman of 
the Month" and reviewed a 
daring new invention called 
the Motogodille. a sort of 
prehistoric outboard engine. It 
has not faltered since. 

It is also a phenomenon in 
magazine publishing; only five 
issues lost in 80 years and only 
five editors overall Even 
more remarkably, the last 
three of those editors are not 
only still on excellent terms, 
but" all write for the anniver- 
sary issue, representing 61 



vessels in distress as an emer- 
gency form of mooring, so you 
are, after all “making proper 
use of the harbour facilities". 


THERE IS no other yachting 
magazine likely to print an 
engaging half-page ramble on 
the number of animal names 
used on board ship (you 
mouse a shackle and cat an 
anchor), nor run a regular 
feature entitled “The Con- 
fessional". in which readers 
recount embarrassing mo- 


ments when they missed' a 
d fo 


Tribute to a king: the first edition of Yachting Monthly 


years of unbroken tradition. 

There is Maurice Griffiths, 
yacht designer of the 1920s, 
the patron saint of all those 
whose idea of heaven is a 
curlew-haunted anchorage up 
a' reedy river after a hard 
passage home from Holland. 
Griffiths, in feet saved the 
magazine: in 1921 the founder 
editor Herbert Reiach died 
(aboard his boat naturally) 
and the editorship passed to. 
one of the Cowes fraternity. 
Major Malden Hecksiall- 
Smith. He filled it with regatta 
and social news, and the 
readership deserted en masse 
to a modest periodical edited 
by Griffiths and chiefly in- 
tended as a brokerage guide. 


IT EVENTUALLY swal- 
lowed the bigger magazine 
entirely and the YM was back 
on course as the flagship of the 
silent non-racing majority. In 
1966, after 40 years, Maurice 
Griffiths handed over to Des 
Sleigh (holme who only relin- 
quished his helm last year. 

It is the Sleightholme style 
which 1 first met: a combina- 
tion of humorous nostalgia for 
the old days and appreciation 
of the new, “Then there was a 


river with a line of wooden 
boats moored to wooden bar- 
rels; now there is a thousand- 
mast marina and an acre of 
parked cars . . . technician 
has replaced craftsman, and 
lamp wick has yielded to light- 
emitting diode." 

He evolved today’s for- 
mula: a winning mixture of 
tarry old wisdoms and rig- 
orously fair consumer tests of 
everything from satellite 
navigation systems to Snack- 
pots. Few readers will forget 
either his joyful and vocif- 
erous discovery of a new. 
seasick pill in the 1 970s, or his 
dreamy little essays on such 
matters as the. best lamp-fuel 
for binnacles (sacristy oil from 
ecclesiastical suppliers). 

Among the hard-facts arti- 
cles. accounts of readers’ 
cruises, and esoteric ads for 
chandlery. and “high perfor- 
mance offshore trousers", 
there has always run a rich 
vein of eccentricity. If you 
write an account of running 
aground in Ramsgate Har- 
bour, a reader, will pop up 
instantly with a quotation 
from a 1 937 pilot book saying 
that the mud banks in Rams- 
gate were often used by fishing 


lighthouse and found them- 
selves in Swan age by mistake, 
or tangled their anchor chain 
round the propeller and lost 
their glasses overboard. 

The new editor, Andrew 
Bray, says he does not have to 
go looking for such diversions. 
“The magazine does it by 
itself. It has a total life of its 
own." All nine editorial staff 
are active cruising sailors and 
the readers art very free with 
their anecdotes. Heath -Robin- 
son ideas and occasional 
scolds. But the secret, above 
all is the romantic streak 
which has survived into the 
age of glass fibre and Terylene. 

Sleightholme understands 
this best: writing about Suffolk 
sailing, he will suddenly burst 
out “This is the joy of sailing 
ancient waters. .Come micro- 
chip or boil-in-the-bag dinner, 
the' wind that lifts my sails 
lifted those of hoy and brig, 
my echo-sounder pings on the 
bones of Saxon. Dane, and 
Dutchman , . 

Cowes Week never pro- 
duced a thought like that. 


In the 
eye of 


a storm 


The British are no 


strangers to foul 
weather. But why 


does it so often 


occur in summer? 


Libby Purves 

© Tima* Nmnpapm Ud. 1988 


There are few more awe- 
inspiring sights than a fiJI- 
btown thunderstorm. Tire 
impact is longstanding and 
ran also be chaotic, as the 
weekend's floods in the north 
and west of the country bear 
witness. 

Even oar most famous 
honeymooners, the Duke and 
Duchess of York, were njwet 
by storms, when the returning 
B ritannia was forced to seek 
shelter in Portsmouth on 
Saturday. 

We can all sympathize with 
the sense of fear recorded by 
Virgil in the Aeneuh “The 
heavens thundered and the 
air shone with frequent fire: 
and all things threatened men 
with instant death." Yet to 
most of us they remain a 
source of mystery. 

Clearly, the vital combina- 
tion for storms is warm humid 
air at low level and ranch 
colder, dryer air aloft. The 
conditions are then right for 
bnbbles of warm air to rise 
rapidly, forming towering 
clouds. This is usually trig- 
gered either when the low 
level air is heated by the 
daytime sun or at the end of a 
hot spell as cooler air moves 
in. 

The right conditions can 
occur at any time, bat are 
much more common in 
smnmerAVinter storms are 
less intense as the surface air 
is cooler and less humid. In a 
normal year central and 
southern England can expect 
to have thunder on between 
10 and 20 days. 

In a single storm cell there 
is a continuous motion, as 
warm air rises np the centre 
and cold air flows down the 
outside. A mature storm is. on 
average about five miles 
across, six miles high and 
lasts for an hour. The energy 
involved in such a brute is 
equal to about 10 to 20 times 
that of the atom bomb 
dropped on Nagasaki 

As a storm rambles across 
die country it will stir op new 
ilistutbtineqSf &Bd .this means, 
that the amount of rain in any 
one place can vary greatly. In 
August 1975 'more ffcau six. 
inches of rain fell on Hamp- 
stead in a few hours while 
places within 10 miles had no 
rain at all. 

A hailstorm can be even 


more dramatic. This is 
formed when raindrops fall- 
ing down die edge of the 
storm are sucked back into 
the central updraft and freeze. 
In Britain hail normally 
ws no bigger than a pea. 
rare occasions, h can grow 
bigger than a golfbalL In 
other parts of the world, 
notably the midwest United 
States, hail of this size is 
more common and the record 
for a hailstone was a l%lb 
mis-shapen object seven 
inches across that fell on 
Coffey, Nebraska in 1970. 

Heavy hail causes great 
damage. In August 1846, for 
instance, hail broke 7,000 
windows in the Houses of 
Parliament and smashed the 
glass arcade that then cov- 
ered the pavements of Regent 
Street. 

Even more fearsome is the 
lightning. By a process as yet 
incompletely understood, the 
impact between raindrops 
and ice crystals builds up a 
positive electrical charge at 
the top of the clouds and a 
negative charge at the bottom. 
Wbea the charge reaches a 
certain level It discharges 
from the base of the doud to 
the ground. The dap of 
thunder is the sonic boom 
created by the stroke of the 
lightning. 

The Romans believed that 
the bay tree provided protec- 
tion from lightning, while our 
folklore ascribes these same 
powers to both holly and 
mistletoe. But anyone caught 
out in the open in the middle 
of a storm is better advised 
not to shelter under trees or 
tall objects. Crouch ■ down, 
clutching your feet and legs 
together. It may look siliv bat 
being struck by 

lightning.

4 Feminists can’t win. They get it in the neck if they advocate abortion and 
are vilified if, finding husbands hard to come by, they have a test-tube baby 9 


Twenty years 'ago; Sir Edmund 
Leadi .gave: the first ami-family 
diatribe I ever heard when he 
delivered the Reith Lectures and 
snarled the-, words, “the family, 
with its narrow privacy and 
tawdry secrets”. 

I had not supposed that his 
lecwrerhad any influences all on 
the popu lation at large, since 
surveyafter surveys shows that it is 
ibe f nienti oii of m ost young men 
and \H5ffieif ti> ger marrietTand 
reproduce themsdvtt; t * s — 

Nevertheless* the authors of a 
book published today. Family 
Portrait's, think that them is a 
perverse desire on foe part of the 
state and its citizens to undermine 
the formal" family, which they 
perceive to be “the family of 
husband, wife and their- own 
dnktren,- -the- jMrento- seriously 
intending- to stay -togetiier T -tbe 
husband being the principal if not 
the only breadwinner". 

The villains who seek to destroy 
this harmonious little 'group are 
threefold.' -fenrinisis, the govern- 
ment of tite day and busybody 
organizations such as the Family 
Planning- Association -and .the 
Heaftfr Edutiatipn Councit .AH of 
these: tf is thqughfc tempt people 
away from “norm al^fanrily life by 
showering financial benefits ana 
moral approval on single-parent 
families and people who would 
rather go on the toot than settle 
down.' 

It is terribly easy to find fault 
with this book; in met, many of the 
contributors fin'd Suit with, each 
ofoecBemuoite Parker seeschfld 
benefit aSTfie'.tobff cost^Jfeqtive 
means 'of supporting the tra- 
ditional family Wm)e ’David. 
Marsland thinks that' “enormous 


resources currently -wasted on 
better-off fern i lies could easily and 
should properly be transferred 
directly to the genuinely poor'*. 

. Yet the book's most serious 
failing is that everyone portrayed 
in it is a stereotype — feminists are 
man-bating viragos, teachers are 
parent-bating leftovers .from the 
wicked 1960s, children from sin- 
gloparem ifemihes are authority- 
hating deviahts-- " ' ' ‘ ' : ' ■ • 

’ : Ta take- tbei attack cm feminists 
first. It is; now widely accepted, 
although hot by the editors of 
Family Portraits* that feminism 
was in part a response to the flight 
from commitment by men, many 
of them husbands and fathers 
who, in increasing numbers, have 
been walking out-on their wives 
.and ; &iiiilies.~ Given the choice, 

‘ most women would 'sot Aoose to 
bring up children single-handedly. 

i am appalled at how 
little the state invests 
in our children’ 


Even the chapter^ in Family Por- 
traits called “JRemin&f Attempts 
to Sack Father A Case of Unfair 
Dismissal?" admits that “nine out 
of ten of those parents who leave 
the', matrimonial home are male”. 

It is wefl-nigh impossible to stop 
Daddy from leaving if -Daddy 
wants .Co go but that' is not the 
sartieas 1 claimrag, as doe the 
chapter’santhar, Patricia Morgan, 
that there, is a campaign against 
lathers. Nor is thereon “eagerness 
to assume that families headed by 
single mothers provide an ade- 


quate environment - for bringing 
up healthy children .{whidij has 
been reflected in the policies of 
courts and welfare bodies as well 
as lubricating the path of easier 
and easier divorce”. 

On the contrary, so strongly 
held is the notion that children do 
better in a two-parent household 
that divorced mothers of children 
tend to many again as quickly as 
possible. The' 31 per cent of the- 
nation's households which consist 
of married couples with depen- 
dent children scoop up those 
where the children belong to only 
one spouse. 

All the lobbying on behalf of 
single parents is to ensure that 
they and their children do not 
suffer from the disadvantages of 
that state. Nobody is hastening the 
exit of fathers from the home. 
What they are trying to do is see 
that their disappearance does not 
cause damage and, in spite of 
some rather dodgy evidence to the 
contrary quoted by Patricia Mor- 
gan, it would appear that they 
would be winning the battle. 

. It has to be said, however, that 
even when Daddy stays put, he 
may not participate as much as he 
should in his children’s lives anrf 
tins can have negative results. 
Research by Charlie Lewis and 
John and Elizabeth Newsom in- 
vestigated levels of father involve- 
ment within intact families and 
found that some fathers hardly 
knew the meaning of the word. 

Far be ft from me to advocate 
divorce but I have seen children 
flourish -wonderfully when - their - 
divorced father, shows - up at 
weekends arid -cans them on for 
two days of his undivided' atten- 
tion and educational outings.

PENNY 

PERRICK 


) 


Maybe they are better off in this 
son of broken home than in an 
intact one where the male house- 
holder snores the weekend away in 
front of the video and the female 
one snaps everybody’s head off 
every time she trips over her 
husband’s feet. 

A Home Office Research Study 
in 1983 (hardly the work of 
dangerous radicals) reported that 
there was no link between 
criminaiity and fatherless families 
and that “life in single-parent 
fern flies is often more difficult but 
no less caring”. One might even 
deduce that if parents split up and 
so spend less time with each other, 
.they might spend more time with 
their children. But let us not 
deduce that; since any theory can 
be neatly turned on its head. 

Instead of campaigning to keep 


the MMA. 1 think Ms Morgan 
should be striving to bring back 
official Matchmakers. What she is 
more likely lo do is blame 
feminism again. Feminists just 
can't win. They get it in the neck if 
they advocate abortion and arc 
vilified just as much if. finding 
husbands hard to come by. they 
try and have a baby via a test-tube. 

State interference is also re- 
funded as being against the in- 
terests of the normal family. 
Although I do not wish this 
country to become another Swe- 
den, where nursery school teach- 
ers are encouraged to report 
parents who do not seem to be 
bringing up their children in a 
socially approved manner, I am 
appalled at how little the state 
invests in our children. 

1 once interviewed the woman 
who was Maria Colwell's primary 
school teacher. Time and time 
again, she had tried to tell people 
that there was something wrong 
with, the shivering little bundle of 
bones who sat on her lap during 
storytime. Time and time again, 
she was told that the problem 
would have to wait until the next 
committee meeting, or that every- 
thing seemed all right at home. 

The authors of Family Portraits 
would say that such childre n did 
not belong to “normal” families 
and they would be right But I 
have taught in schools in leafy 
suburbs where every family lived 
their life as portrayed in Janet and 
John reading primers. Some of my 
pupils could hardly master simple 
sentences because they were 
looked after by foreign au pairs 
while their mothers went to 
advanced cookery classes. 

Far from urging less govern- 


ment interference I would like to 
‘ see ihe appointment of a Minister 
for Children. And please lei it be 
somebody who regards it as a 
national scandal that a young 
woman is left alone with a bawling 
toddler in a tower block day after 
day; somebody who insists that 
ibe baric rudiments of parenthood 
are taught as part of the school 
curriculum. 

This suggestion will be anath- 
ema to David Marsland, whose 
chapter in Family Portraits insists 
that “the family is still being 
weakened by state hijacking of 
young people”. And it will not find 
approval from Valerie Riches 
who, in the following chapter, 
suggests that sex education should 
be removed from the curriculum. 
They both suggest, as does 
Hermione Parker in another es- 
say, that taking responsibility 
away from parents has produced 

‘We now think sex 
and morals should 
go hand in hand’ 


an offensive, street-smart genera- 
tion of young adults who.' with 
state handouts jingling in their 
pockets, leave home deriding their 
parents' values and intent on 
living a life of sexual 
irresponsibility. 

But look around and what do 
you see? Grown-up children slay- 
ing in the parental home until 
their mid-twenties or even later. 
Common sense tells them that 
they are better off there than in 
squalid lodgings, even if they 
would then be entitled to a board 


■ and lodgi ng allowance of up.to £70 
a week. The young adults wh&do 
take advantage of this scheme -are 
those who are unable to find work 
near home - and that is another 
and far more scandalous story. " 

As for the school's role injjgx 
education, here is a chicken-ami- 
egg situation. Was the suQfect 
introduced because teachers dis- 
covered that parents were leaving 
their children in ignorance? Or did 
parents opt out because . fthe£ 
discovered (one suspects in sqgte 
cases thankfully) that schools were 
taking over the job? 

In any case, one feels that 
Valerie Riches is locking the stqhle 
door after the permissive society 
has disappeared over the horizon. 
Mosi people, the loony left aside, 
now think that sex and .morals 
should go hand in hand, jusras 
they think that the son of primary 
school education advocated bylhg 
ridiculous Plowdcn Report of the 
1960s- should be abolished , in 
fevour of proper timetables which 
leach the three Rs. 

It is hard to be angry with 
Family Portraits since all the illsXt 
portrays are already on the way 
oul Divorce figures are stabiliz- 
ing; students have, on the whqfo 
stopped demonstrating and -art 
anxious to acquire jobs as manage^ 
ment consultants: there is a move 
towards streaming-by-abiliiy in 
schools. Reading the outraged, 
contributions to this book almost 
induces a sense of nostalgia forth? 
bad old days which, the authors 
refuse to notice, have been super- 
ceded by better, new ones.

Government health: experts 
are growing increasingly con- 
cerned about the possibility of 
a national epidemic following 
the deaths of 72 people in 
Britain ibis year. But in 
Stroud, where the incidence of 
meningitis, are is 14 times 
greater than the: national av- 
erage, the risks have become* I some

living nightmares 

“You always think it’s going 
to -happen to someone else 
until it happens on your 
doorstep”, says 27-year-old 
Barbara Stewart, who has a 
three-year-old son, Douglas. 
“Now we are looking over our 
shoulders all the time to see 
where it's going to strike next 

1 watch 1 Douglas like - a 
hawk now.- 1 have told him he 
has got to idl me if he gets a 
headache, and the doctor said 
that if he cant move his bead 
from side to side I have got to 
take him down to the surgery 
immediately.” 

Most worrying for the 
inhabitants' of the 170 square 
miles of- imdulati ng country- 
side,- which makes np the 
Stroud District is the feet that 
the doctors and saentirishave 
so far found no reason for the 
heavy incidence of cases in the 
area. Despite three research 
projects currently in progress, 
the authorities admit they are 
baffled. 

“7 don’t think wehave 
made any 'discoveries m ifie 
past ftye .years.”, says Dr 
James Stuart, Gloucester's 
registrar- in tomm unity 
medicine: 

Dr Stuart is anxious to 
stress that Stroud is not the 
only place in Britain to be 
affected. Yet the experts agree 
that it is unusual for an 
outbreak to last as iongas five 
year?. -While the normal 
chance of catching meningo- 
coccal meningitis is one -in 
100,000, there have been 14 
cases among the 106.000 peo- 
ple jn the Stroud District 
already' this year, and around 
1 00 since 1981. 

Last week • One of 
Christopher’s best friends, 
eight-year-old Geoffrey 
Squibb, was identified as be- 
ing a carrier of -the' disease. 
Now the entire Squibb family ' 
have been pur on antibiotics 


How many moremust die?”, 

; which he took up to Downing 
Street last ’Wednesday. 
“Someone has got to speak out 
and it just happens to be us", 
he explains. 

Doctors believe that the 
tests — carried out by means of

' meningitis germs at ihe back - 
of their throat without being 
infected themselves or passing 
on the disease to anyone else. 
A negative test one week may 
become a positive one the 
next — or vice versa. To the 
anxious parents of Stroud, 
however, swabbing issi least 
some- kind of tangible action.-

Speaking oat Mrs Kaye Squibb and her son Geoffrey, identified last week as a carrier of the disease 


say?- -local GP Dr Michael 
O’Dowd, “a case of something 
being seen to be done. I 
certainly wouldn't want to be 
the doctor in Stonebouse who 
refused to take swabs.” In 
common with the other GPs 
in the area. Dr O’DowcTs 
workload is being increased by 
anxious parents' who - want 
reassurance, -for foe initial 
. symptoms of meningitis -are 
. very similar -to those of flu. 

While the authorities are 
doing' then best to deflect fear 
and prevent panic, Stroud is 
already suffering from a back-

Rethink on drugs 


From Dr Ann Dally, 
Devonshire Place, London WJ 

Your article on drug abuse 
(Friday Page, July 4) seems to 
have been prepared entirely 
from official, government- 
fttnded sources. It contained 
useful information presented 
with an implicit, unquestion- 
ing attitude such as might be. 
found in an estimate of a 
Soviet problem in Pravda. 

Increasingly, prohibition 
and abstinence are the official 
policies. These are being 
strengthened as it’ becomes 
apparent that they have failed. 
Anyone who 

considers the . position seri- 
ously -will see that the illicit 
drug industry is booming as 
neverbefore.' 

The reason for this most be 
that there are more purchas- 
ers. Clearly, attempts to weah 
addicts off drugs and to pre- 
vent people from taking illegal 
drugs have been nnsmxessfiiL 

The ex-addict who describes 
how he stopped taking drugs 
represents a laudable but 
small minority among drag 
addicts. A “success" of this 
sort is often wheeled oat to 
justify present policies. To 
give them such prominence 
brings despair to those who 
know that they or their loved 
ones cannot achieve tins 
result. 

. Much can be done to help - 
addicts before they decide to 
stop, and many can only come 


TALKBACK 


to this decision if they are> 
given a great deal of help whjb£ 
they are still using drags, even^ 
when they are convinced that: 
they cannot stop using them.'” 

Thonghtfnl people from dif- 
ferent professions are become 
lug amtions About • present; 
policies and attitudes towards' 
users of illegal drugs and foe- 
treatment provided for drag^ 
addicts, increasingly, they see ' 
these as inadequate and 
counterproductive. We have' 
lost foe fight against drngsia^ 
it is conducted, -at- present.: 
Only a tiny minority of drag 
addicts present themselves for ^ 
tiert mtert. Of these: ‘ only -ra- 
tiny minority succeed. - ~ “ in 

Policies and attitudes to -i. 
wards drugs have become-a 
kind of political game. The. 
subject needs new thinking, - 
not the tired repetition of old 
and outworn attitudes, even if 
they are the official ones.

MENINGITIS - THE FACTS 


Meningitis is an inflammation of the menaces, the 
membranes covering foe brain and the spinal cord. The 

present epidemic in the Stroad area is dne to a snlphonamide 

resistant Group B meningococcus, a similar strain to that 
which has cassed other recent outbreaks in Plymouth, 
London, Merseyside and Bi rmin g h a m . 

Bacterial meningitis is spread by droplet infection, the 
bacteria entering the bloodstream through the nose and 
throat and bexng carried from there to the meni nge s. Past 
epidemics have shown font 45 per cent' of foe eases involve 
adolescent* or children, whh more males than females. . 

The onset is freqoentfy sndden with headache, pain in the 
back and neck, and fever, ihdnding rigors and vounting.'Very 
often the pulse is unexpectedly slow. A rash appears before 
foe third day. The patient is irritable and dislikes the light 
and so characteristically lies curled up with his eyes covered; 
he may later become confused and comatose. Treatment is 
straightforward: contacts can be prophy l a ct fc a Dy treated with 
rifampicin, and actual cases with high doses of p enicillin . 

In foe past bacterial meidn^tis had a 75 percent mortality 

rate; antibiotics have reduced this to an average of 1 0 per cent. 
Despite the viralence of the Gloucestershire organism, the 
death rate in the present epidemic is only about 4 percent. 


hep he first be- 
came ill the Pri- 
ors were told he 
bad chicken pox. 
As his condition began to 
deteriorate drastically they 
called m another doctor, who 
diagnosed meningitis and sent 
him to hospital where he was 
kept on a drip for 10 days. 

“It's something you think 
will never happen to you", 
says Mrs Prior, “and when it 
does you just don't under- 
stand what’s happening,” 
When Daniel was wal again 
she joined the local action 
group, which has raised 
£20,000 for research Into foe 
causes of the disease. 

With an almost total lack of 
hard facts to fell back on, 
rumours abound among the 
people of Stroud. Their sus- 
picions as to foe causes of foe 
epidemic range from foe re- 
cent dredging of a local canal 
to possible radiation from a 
triangle of nuclear power sta- 
tions that encompass the area. 
Discotheques, cafes and wine 
bars have also been men- 
tioned as possible sources of 


infection. Twenty-year-old 
Robin Jenkinson admits that 
he no longer socializes as 
much as he once did. “I have 
heard that you can catch it 
through saliva”, he says. “L 
don’t cadge fags off people any 
more or use other people’s 
beer glasses.” 

Christopher Knight, a 
builder's son with two small 
sisters, was the fourth fatality 
in foe area and the ninth 
victim on Sionehouse's Park 
Estate. A bright and friendly 
child, foe effects of his death 
have reached far beyond his 
family and friends. 

For Mrs Kathleen Gam- 
bling, foe tragedy holds 
particular poignancy. She is 
foe headmistress of the Park 
Infant School where Chris- 
topher was a pupil “He was a 
lovely little boy, perky, bright 
and full of fun" she says. “1 
think a cloud has fallen over 
us all since his death. I 
suppose teachers are like sur- 
rogate mothers really, even 
though our main job is to 
educate.” 

As soon as she heard the 
news of Christopher's death 
she drove straight over to his 
parents* council house to com- 
fort the family. “The loss of a 
child is really beyond belief 1 , 
she says.

■ In Southern Sudan thousands of hungry 
families, forced by widespread conflict 
and insecurity to abandon their villages, are 
now crowding into the Impoverished towns of 
Wan and Juba; most are destitute, their cattle 
stolen or sold. Oxfam is working with other 
agencies to distribute desperately needed 
emergency food supplies. « 

■ Across the Sahel, locust control! 

programmes have also boon disrupted; 
and the harvest In Sudan's Darfur province is 
threatened. Here Oxfam has provided seed, 
grain to poor fanners, and spraying against the

which thousands will soon depend for food. . 

In the Red Sea Hills, Oxfam’s nutrition 
teams report a high proportion of young 
children, severely undernourished. .Now.

But lharyou should attempt to

be done from the centre is 
something better - miniraum-'-

through parent-teacher associ-

representation to the laboratory-: 
assistant and lollipop person?), ' 
this has gone too far. New sprats 
kit is all very well; rewiring of iter , 
school premises by local volun- 
teers is not. 

The Conservatives will tefl you - 
that good education does not need . 
good surroundings. “Look at my - 
school" the former Secretary of*. 
State was wont to say, basking —in - 
his tortured way 7 in the dis- 


The letter had said -the way authorities: 
-these letters do — “we can prom- L — _ . 
■ise you a happy evening with a J 
■ large, knowledgeable and enthu- 
siastic audience". IfeU for it — the 
way we politicians do — travelled merger ol 
to Wakefield, and stood outside 
the station waiting to be claimed. 

There is a story about 
G.K. Chesterton on a lecture tour: 

Mrs C had put him on .the train 
and. when he arrived he stood 
prominently by the barrier for five 
minutes, then went to the tele- 
graph office and cabled his wife: 

“Am at Market Harborough stop 
Where should 1 be?" 

At least I knew Wakefield was 
right. . . and after quarter of an 
hour they came for me: “Sony , 
this train is usually late . . prepar- 
ing the hall . . . good of you to 
come . . . arranged dinner at an 
Indian restaurant after the 
meeting . . " When we were in the 
car the association chairman said: 

“Watch out for a tall man in a flat 
cap; he’s a bit ofa Trot." 

I thought I made rather a good 
speech: i praised GCSE, persuad- 
ing teachers — who comprised 
most of the audience — that it 
must.be better to have a brave new 
exam of quality, even if it did 
mean going off at three-quarter 
cock, bang on to a tainted, 
outmoded exam, the machinery of 
which was actually being dis- 
mantled I enthused about wider 
access to tertiary education and 
urged the consistent provirion of 
bridges and ladders in case the 
students' first choice turned out to 
be the wrong one. 

1 went on a bit about the Open 
University, that microcosm of 
Liberal educational policy - sec- 
ond chance, breadth of intake, 
value for money, only way to 
involve the handicapped and 
those living in remote areas, 
marvellously inexpensive to ex- 
tend by virtue of the fixed costs 
element 

Then the man about; whom I 
had been warned asked: “What's 
your mob going to do then?" And 
he sat down. 

At Westminster such questions 
are answered by a scathing look 
and the time-worn words: “I

CIA victim? 

On the eve of the 24th anniversary 
of the arrest of the black South 
African leader Nelson Mandela, 
word reaches me of possible 
American involvement .in his 
capture. Mandela had been on the 
run for 17 months, when armed 


down his car. as. it: headed for 
Durban on August 5, 1962. How 
police came' io be there has never 
been explained — although the 
South African authorities spread a 
story that communists m the 
African National Congress had 
betrayed him. Now the ANG I 
learn, is investigating a theory that-, 
a CIA agent- working from a 
consulate in Durban gave the tip- 
offi The 1 story appeared last week 
in three South African papers, 
claiming the agent had spilled the 
beans at his farewell party a year 
later. Yesterday, however, the 
former CIA official Mites Cope- 
land poured scorn on the theory, 
having checked the name of the 
“agent" against his .own records. 
He speculates that a State Depart- 
ment official, on the other hand,, 
may have on bis own initiative 
told police rumours he had heard 
of Mandela's movements: “But 
the CIA simply wouldn't have bad 
the information to give."

Tim Congdon argues that the Baker Plan could worsen world debt 


The relevance of these in- 
fluences is easily explained. If an 
indebted developing country 
keeps its exports and ' imports 
(excluding interest payments) in 
balance, , its debt grows by the 
addition of interest charges to the 
old (fehtThe size of these charges 
obviously depends on the interest 


The world’s debt crisis arose 
because too much money was lent 
to Thud World countries in the 
1970s. It will not be cured by 
lending them more money in the 
late 1980s.. 

This is. not a profound or 
difficult’ liiieof argument, it does, 
nevertheless, possess profound, 
and difficult implications for the 
Baker Plan, the American admin- 
istration’s programme for easing 
the defat problem. This pro- 
gramme has been much discussed 
since it was put forward by James 
Baker.the US Treasury Secretary, 
at the annual meeting of the World 
Bank and International Monetary 
Fund ia'^eoul last October. . 

The . central . idea 'is that, the; 
immediate financial pressures air 
over-indebted developing coun- 
tries will be relaxed if they agree to 
a variety of supply-side economic 
reforms, such as liberalizing trade 
and relying more on the price 
mechanism to allocate resources. 
Tfae-hanfaest pressure on most of 
them '&ese days’ is servicing ffieir 
debts oh tune: The plan therefore 
proposes that— once they hayt 


rate: While the growth rate of 
exports is beneath the interest 
rate, the ratio of debt to exports 
increases and the financial di- 
lemma becomes more acute. 

As commodities constitute the 
greater part of Third World ex- 
ports, the rate of change in 
commodity prices is the key 


detenmhanfofexport growth. The 
worst possible combination for 
indebted developing nations is a 
high level of dollar interest rates, 
and telling commodity prices. The 
high interest rates cause the debt 
to grow rapidly because of the

prices cuts export earnings.' -- 
- Tbe’figures- hr the’ttbte sfrow- 
bow radically the balance between 
commodity prices and interest- 
rates changed between 1979 and' 
1982, laigdy as a by-product of the 
anti-inflationary monetary policy 
being pursued by Paul Yolcker, 
chairman of the American Federal 
Reserve- It is no coincidence that 
the debt crisis began in August 
198& (when' Mexico- first an- 
nounced that it could not-honour 
fts. debts -on rtime), just as the 
exceptionally high real, interest 
rates of the early 1980s had 
become established. 

As long as the unfavourable gap 
between interest rates and the 
change in commodity prices ex- 
ceeds 10 per cent, the debt 
situation will worsen. The only, 
solution is to change macro- - 
economic policy- in the -.major 
industrial nations; particularly the . 
US, so that real interest rates can 
be lowered to an historically more 
normal level. As long as the Baker 
Plan does not address this vital 
issue, it will make no worthwhile 
progress in alleviating the debt 
problems of Mexico or any other 
Third. World nation.

That much is straight- 
forward and would command 
support from most quarters 
except from the most ardent 
and fundamentalist advocates 
of privatization. More argu-

larly children — who might 


otherwise, be daunted by

Hie {mstinfocos 

From Mr -D. R. Wilson j_ 

Sir; Mr JR. L. Smith (July- 15) is 
right to deplore the lack . of a 
national institute of air photog- 
raphy, though its value would 
extend far beyond the bounds. of 
archaeology. Such an institute 
would have three functions: 
photographic survey, photo- 
graphic register or archive, and 
photographic interpretation, all in 
a multi-disciplinary framework.' 

1. 4t has Jong seemed anomalous 
and wasteful that so many govem- 
ment and public bodies should 
each employ their own photo- 
graphic aircraft while others 
commission photographic surveys 
from commercial companies. It is 
obviously more cost-effective for 
the same flight, to serve the needs 
of several clients — a principle 
whfch has proved itself admirably 
in rthe wbrit of the Cambridge 
University Committee fbrAenal 
Photography over a period of forty - 
years. 

2. Current provision for recording 
the existence of air photographs 
once taken shows better national 
co-ordination, through the Central 
Registers of Air -Photography 
mentioned by Mr Dunbar (July 
29); Regrettably ■ however, al- 
though these work- well in Scot- 
land and Wales; that in England 
haslbng been ineffective, and its 
recent transfer from the Depart- 


ment of the. Environment to the 
Ordnance- Survey has yet . to . 
restore' to : it a reassuring degree of 
vigour ' ;---' -' V. - . 

- 3. Facilities for photo-mterpreta- 
lion are as fragmented as Ihiose for 
photogrpahic survey. There is 
indeed a vast quantity of expertise 
located in specialist units devoted 
to agricultural management, 
archaeology, cartography, civil en- 
gineering., ecology. forestry arid 
soil survey,. not. to mention plan-, 
ning. but there- is equally, a meed 
for a 'school of photo-interpreta- 
tion that transcends such' disci- 
plinary boundaries and views, our 

- environment asa whole. 

An institute embracing these 
three functions has been a long- 
cherished hope of those who takea 
broad view of the value of air. 
phoiogrpahy -. to science. . com- 
merce .and -administration, and., 
believe '.that' to be generally effeo- 
tive it .must escape; from the, 
confines of individual specialisms. .

Off the record 

From Dr Julian Lewis 

Sir. I ha'd almost given up/hope of 

tracing pictures of some two dozen 


senior- diplomats and . military 
planners from the J94Qs, when I-- 
was . referred lo the “NationaP 
Photographic Record” housed’w- 
theCarlton House Terrace archive, 
of the National Portrait Gallery. ■ 

In less than an hour, with the 
aid of the Gallery's helpful staff I 
had located pictures of the great 
majority of the individuals fea- 
tured in the book I was complet- 
ing. : ; 

R: appears that the -National 
Photographs- Record -waa -estab- 
lished during the first-world war as- 
a pictorial "Who’s who” of figures 
in British public life. It was 
continuously updated on a sys- 
tematic basis until 1972, when 
there was a breakdown in the 
arrangements between the Na- 
tional Portrait Gallery and -the 
photographic -studio ■concerned. - 
Plans to reconstitute- the NPR 
with a less exclusively Establish- . 
ment-orientgd focus -were still- 
born- . ..." I :• . 

Even. if the National Photo-, 
graphic Record were id be revived 
immediately — as it ought to be — 
it is sad to think that future 
historians researching the 1970s 
and 1980s will find a 14-year gap 
in this unique. collection.

' While- the latter would entail a

From Mrs R. A: Doaglas-Pennant 
Sir. The recent speech of the 
Environment Minister, Mr Rid- 
ley, to the annual conference ofthe 
Royal Institute of British Archi- 


tects (July I0L in which he looked 

. forward to a time when planners 
no longer had. control over the 
exterior appearance of buildings, 
was musjc to my ears. 

In 1969; newly divorced, I 
moved to a 17th century cottage, 
applying for permission to build a 
single-storey extension fora bed- 
room and bathroom. My applica- 
tion was refused on the grounds 
that- only a two-storey extension 
would be -in keeping with the 
existing- -listed building.- Since I- 
neitber needed nor could afford 
this, my architect waged a doughty • 
battle and the original plan was 
eventually passed 
Last year 1 remarried and we 
asked- the same architect to pro- 
vide us with another room up- 
stairs, putting into operation the 
: planners’' former . recommenda- 
tion. Our' parish council, passed 
the plans unanimously 'and Jocal- 
friends, acquaintances and strang- 

so the -planners: this 1 flme our 
application was refused on the 
grounds that a two-storey exten- 
sion would overshadow the exist- 
ing listed building — -and this time 
they could not be persuaded to 
. change their minds. . ^ 

. the .listing of buddings was orig- 

- mally conceived to identify worth- 
' while buildings and prevent their 

d&triiction ' through ignorance, 
but not to render them untouch- 
able. 

If only the butchers, bakers and 
candlestick-makers now presiding 
over our lifestyles had been lucky 

- enough to grow up, as 1 did. m a

Sir Dr Furniss’s plea (July 21 J for

Knot so fast 

From Mr E. A. Hughes 
Sir, As I- have utter confidence that 
The Times' -would never commit 
the schoolboy howler of describing 
a ship^s acceleration as its velocity, 
may I point but an interesting 
conclusion to be drawn from a 
reported claim — “the trireme 
covered the distance at an average 
speed of 7 J knots ah hour” — in 
today's Spectrum article (July 31 ). 

Such a trireme would have 
reached Lesbos travelling finally 
at 53 knots, with an average speed 


for the 1 90-mile trip of 3516 knots. 
This compares very favourably 
with the recent performance of the 
Virgin Atlantic Challmgcri- 
One can only attribute this 
jreraarkable achievement, to -foe 
diet oflaced barley cakes fed to foe 
oarsmen. Perhaps . .our. modem 
sporting oarsmen should adopt 
this regimen to ensure British 
success in their pursuit.

Free access — 
and not so free 

■ From Dr Mervyn Bryn- Jones 
' Sir, The local Government (Ao- 
cess to Information) Act 1985 
came into force on April 1 this 
year. One of its main aims was to 
open up the affairs of loot! 
authorities by providing the pub- 
lic with access to such things as 
meetings, agenda, reports and 
minuus. 

An important innovation was to 
let tiie public inspect foe back- 
' ground papers upon which reports 
were based, and local authorities 
were allowed to make a 
“reasonable” charge for this ser- 
vice. 

It is interesting to see how local 
government has put the Act into 
effect in London. Of the 33 
boroughs, including the City, 28 
make no charge at all for inspect- 
• ' ing ' background papers. Three 

- make a modest charge of a pbund 
or less. In two cases, however, tbe 
fees are £6 an hour (Havering) and 
worst of all Richmond, who 
charge £3 for the first hour mod £10 
an hour thereafter. 

One cannot help but come to 
the conclusion that in these two 
boroughs a deliberate attempt has 
been made to discourage the 
. public- from making use of- the 

- pro visions o f the Act. The feet that 
one of them, Richmond, is led by 
-the party- which has strong views 
about the freedom of information 
is strange indeed. 

Yours -faithfully,- .

Press and Palace 

From Mr G.H.L.Le May 
Sir, “Unattributed leaks” from 
ministers of the Crown have been 
part of the accepted political 
process for so long that they have 
attained the status of constitu- 
tional conventions. One question 
which may 'now . be asked is 
-' whether .a new convention is in the . 
making — that foe Palace is to be 
regarded as. a proper arena for tbe 
activities of lobby correspondents 
or investigative journalists. One 
might also ask why the Palace 
needs a press secretary and what 
his functions are supposed to be. 

The accepted Junctions of the 
Sovereign’s. private secretary, at 
• least since foe death of.the JPripce 
Consort in 1861, have been to act 
as foe Sovereign’s eyes and ears, to 
keep foe Sovereign aware of 
political opinion, to maintain 
links with foe official Opposition 
and, in foe later years of Queen 
Victoria, to . act as a shock- 
absorber between foe. Queen and 
v ministers' (such as" Gladstone)

; interpreted' BagehotV self fulfill- 
. ing prophecy (“foe right to be* 
consulted, foe right to encourage,

confidential, rightly so because 
responsibility Tests with ministers. 

If a new convention is in tbe 
making, , it' is one which is du- 
. biously In the public ihteresl One 
would Tike to" know why foe

Adult-proof 

From DrAi G. White 
-Sir. The problem of removing 
child-resistant fids from drug con- 
tainers, highlighted by your 
correspondent (July 28). is 
particularly acute in the case of 
those suffering from rheumatoid 
arthritis affecting foe hands. 

Unfortunately the solution pro- 
posed by ' your * pharmacist 
correspondent (July 30), that the 
pharmacist be simply asked at the 
time of handing in the prescrip- 
tion not to -provide resistant lids 
foils most often in those cases 
where such lids are foe greatest 
problem — Le_ where foe patients 
are. housebound by this disability 
and relatives, neighbours or the 
home-help collect tbe medicines. 

Several pharmaceutical compa- 
nies have desired special easily 
removable lids for arthritic hands, 
and these can be^specified by foe 
prescriber. A more generally ap- 
plicable solution is to design, as I 
have done, a distinctive rubber 
stamp .bearing foe words “no 
childproof fids please”, which is 
applied to prescriptions taken to 
foe local phtemacist by either 
patient or helper.

AUGUST41949 

In April 1949 HMS Amethyst was 
fired on by Communist batteries 
as she made her way up the 
Yangtze River; the ship, 140 miles 
from foe sea, was damaged and 17 
of her crew, including the 
commanding officer, were killed. 
Lt-Cdr Kerens was able to came 
aboard from Hanking to take 
command. On July 30 Amethyst 

slipped her moorings and the next 

dtp reached the sea. Commander 
Herons, who was awarded the 
DSO, died in September 1985 at 
the age of 70. : . 


[HMS AMETHYST] 

CAPTAIN’S ACCOUNT 
OF HER ESCAPE 

From Our Special Correspondent 
HONGKONG, Aug. 3 
The Amethyst was given a rt- 
md i ng welcome when she 

reached Hongkong to-day 

y Jeu t enant ^o mmander Karans 
told your Correspondent that two 
♦fowgn made him decide to try to 
make tbe dash for tbe open sea. 
The first was the Communist 
refusal to let him have any fuel and 
his growing conviction that they 
did not intend to let the Amethyst 
go anyway- Tbe second was tbe 
steady worsening of the physical 

condition of the crew. Thu date and 
timing of the escape depended 
partly on the moon and partly on 
the estimated steaming time to the 
open sea. Except for one other 
officer who was in the secret, the 
ship's company were informed only 
on the day of the projected escape, 
I, in I terant - Commander Kerens 
having concluded that the less time 
they mil to mull over this hazard- 
ous venture tire better for their 
morale. He himself put tbe chances 

at fifty-fifty. 

He said that the trickiest part of 
the whole operation was the initial 
getaway. The Amethyst was point- 
ing Upstr ea m nnd had to mnlw d 
180 degree turn, and it was known 
that there were Communist batter- 
ies trained on her. He had packed 
foe cable with sacking to reduced 
noise when it was slipped and had 
spread dark canvas along parts of 
the superstructure to try to alter 
the silhouette. It was several 
minutes before the Communist 
gunners realized what was happen- 
ing, but then fire was intense and 
the machine-gun fire was wither- 
ing.. The Amethyst was hit on the 
sttrbosird bow Iv a shall estimated 
to be a TSnun. He had previously 
decided that if anything went 
wrong he would beach the foip and 
blow her up. For a few minutes he 
thought this might be necessary. 
Not only was the fire intense, but 
he was having difficulty in getting 
under way- “They were anxious 
minutes,? be said. 

Fortunately -the- Communist 
gunners registered no further hits, 

and hp hati now fallen in behind; a 

river steamer. The .Communist 
charge, made yesterday over Pe- 
lting radio, that Amethyst sank the 
steamer Lieutenant-Commander 


Kerens dismissed as an absolute 
lie. The Amethyst fired only one 
round with her large gun; although 
plenty with Brens and Oerlifcons, 
but the fire was directed exclusive- 
ly at the shore batteries to try to 
keep them quiet. 

Just round the bend in the river 
there was the mix-up with 
Communist gunboat or light naval 
vessel which later appeared to have 
been hit by the Communist guns. 
Men in the Amethyst could seethe 
gunboat’s crew jumping into the 
water. Trouble was expected at 
Rose Island, where the original 
engagement took place; nothing 
happened there, but they were fired 
at for a quarter of an boor going 
past the Kiangyin forts. The boom 
they had to get through consisted 
of a row of sunken ships originally 
laid by the Chinese at the begin- 
ning of the Sino-Japanese war, 
with a narrow channel marked by 
white buoys- ■ • 

Kerens

Oppressed peoples : 

From Dr M. C Wheeler 
Sir. Judith Countess of Listowel 
asks (July 25) why South Africa’s 
black majority population is tbe 
object these days of so much more 
international concern than arc the 
principal national, minorities of 
three .Balkan states. To rephrase, 
her question Zip this way is to 
provide a part, of foe. answer she 
seeks. 

The situations are -not analo- 
gous. They could become so, but 
only after black majority rule has 
been won and. foe white minority 
finds itself denied in practice the 
basic human rights guaranteed in 
theory to all South African citi- 
zens. For this, after all. is what the 
ex^mpernd- •.•masters .Jifce -foe 
Hongarians of . Transylvania and 
the Tutta of Bulgaria are suffering 
at the hands of their inheritors. 

The case of foe Albanians of 


.. Ytgpriavia is rather' different 
Oyer the past century or so Serbs 
and .Albanians have taken turns 
oppressing one another in an area 
they have shared for far. longer, 
each convinced that foe land is 
theirs and each occasionally af- 
forded the opportunity to put that 
- thesis into effect. 

■ At present - and contrary to the 

Countess of Lisfowel’s informa- 
tion — It is foe ever-diminishing 
Serb and Montenegrin minority in 
Kosovo which feds most' ag- 
grieved, notwithstanding the 
Albanians’ relative social and 
economic inequality in Yugo- 
slavia generally. • • 

But to equate foe- plight , of 
Yugoslavia’s nearly two million 
Albanians with that o ("Bulgaria's 
Turks or Romania's Hungarians, 
let alone with South Africa’s 
blacks; is not to compare like with 
like. Yugoslavia gaye up seeking 
to expel or denationalize its 


Albanian ' population after- the 
Second World War, and a good 
many Serbs would nowadays ar- 
gue fo'ai it is they who arc paying 
foe price for the Albanian national 
self-affirmation that has been 
encouraged since 1966. 

Whether South Africa's -black 
majority, itself riven by national 
and tribal divisions, wffl- prove 
any wiser or -more forgiving than 
its European predecessors in the 
national- Mancipation- process 
carinoL-of course,- be predicted. It 
is at least arguable, however, that 
greater help from abroad in the 
destruction of apartheid will im- 
prove foe odds.

The fair and gentle treatment of Father 
John Mahoney, SJ, by Cardinal Basil 
Hume, consisting of the discreet with- 
drawal of as unnecessary imprimatur 
on Father Mahoney’s book on moral 
theology, may be- seen as an English 
comment on the much bigger hiss in 
America concerning the Vatican's at- 
tempts to discipline another well known 
theologian. Father Charles Curran. 

He has been told, in effect, to toe the 
line on sexual ethics or face the loss of 
his status as a Roman Catholic theolo- 
gian.. “We handle these things better 
here”. Cardinal Hume seems to be 
saying. 

Curran’s case is becoming a cause 
celebre of the same kud as Hans KOng, 
Edward Schiliebeeckx and Leonardo 
Boffi but it is the only one of the four in 
the delicate and dangerous territory (for 
Catholic moral theologians) of sex, 
marriage, birth control, abortion, and 
homosexuality. 

Father Curran is a professor at the 
Catholic University of America, and he 
teaches and writes liberally on these 
topics. The Sacred Congregation for the 
Doctrine of the Faith at the Vatican has 
investigated his work, and judges it 
contrary to the teaching of the church's 
magjsterium. 

Probably the only reason there have 
not been for more cases like Curran's 
(and more modestly, Mahoney's) is that 
moral theologians as a breed have come 
to regard sexual ethics as.a no-go area, 
given that they are almost bound lo start 
from somewhere other than where the 
Vatican would want them to start, and 
bound therefore to come to different 
conclusions. 

The Vatican ’^current view of the role 
of the theology appears to be that it is an 
intellectual form of “public relations”, 
of explaining why the church’s official 
teaching is righL It does not appear to be 
open to theologians, in this view, to ask 
whether it is in fact right, even less to as- 
sert that it is not. 

What links Curran with Kung, 
Schiliebeeckx and Boffis they all believe 
that theologians must follow their 


honest inquiries wherever they may 
lead. What links them also is that they 
have each raised questions about church, 
authority, and the Congregation for the 
Doctrine of the Faith is foe appointed 
defender of that authority. 

Official Roman Catholic doctrine 
concerning human sexuality rests upon 
fundamental principles which are soil 
widely acknowledged outside * the 
Catholic Church because they are 
implicit in Western culture. Much of 
English law on sexual behaviour derives 
from medieval moral theology and 
canon law, for instance. 

The principles are that sexual inter- 
course is seriously sinful if it is not 
“lawful”, that is to say, within the 
bounds of monogamous matrimony, 
and if it is not “natural”, meaning foe 
deposit of semen into foe vagina try 
sexual intercourse. The assumption is 
that sex - or specifically, foe capacity of 
the male organ to discharge live semen - 
has been designed by God for one single 
purpose, its “end” or “jinalitd”, which is 
the reproduction of the 'species; any 
alternative use must be secondary and 
not contradictory to that, or it is illicit. 

Thus male masturbation, oral or anal 
sex, male homosexual intercourse of 
any kind, sexual intercourse before or 
outside marriage, and sexual inter- 
course using a contraceptive devise, are 
all ruled out.(though it is not so easy to 
catch exclusively female sexual acts in 
foe same logical net). 

Catholic moral theology in general 
has tended to move away from the kind 
of reasoning which concentrates on (he 
ends of certain actions to determine 
their moral status, preferring to make its 
priority the whole person, in relation- 
ship and in community, so that actions 
are judged morally according to their 
consequences. 

The notion of an act which is 
immoral “in itself” is hard to integrate 
into such an approach, yet it stands part 
of the received corpus of Roman 
Catholic teaching on sex. 

Curran, it appears, has been bold 
enough to turn foe logic of the personal. 


relational approach into a critique of 
this body of doctrine. He has thus 
crossed foe Vatican’s picket line. 

Formally speaking foe Vatican can 
not and does not claim infallible 
authority for its teachings on sexual 
ethics, though it is dearly raced with foe 
problem that to retract or fun- 
damentally modify such teachings 
would be a grave admission of 
follibility. 

It therefore tends to act as if all these 
issues were finally and totally closed, as 
-if there was no possible .scope for 
theologians to question er dissent Its 
view seems to be that to do otherwise 
would destroy the church's credibility. 
That was one of the most powerful 
arguments advanced in support of the 
encyclical, Humanae Vitae, on birth 
control in 1968. 

The joint statement by foe vicar 
general of Westminster Archdiocese 
and Father Mahoney, concerning the 
removal. of the imprimatur from his 
book Bioethics arm Belief, dedares: 
“Tension, which is not always necessar- 
ily undesirable, can occur when theolo- 
gians and other experts in foe church, 
encouraged to deepen our understand- 
ing of how the church is to apply 
religious and moral principles in mod- 
em society, advance considerations and 
conclusions concerning some areas of 
life today which are ai variance with foe 
current official teaching on these 
particular matters”. 

It is a cautious defence of open 
inquiry, in other words, and it implies 
that Rome does not always get every- 
thing exactly right. 

What is scandalous in the process 
against Father Curran is that it looks 
rather like an attempt to enforce -by 
discipline a consensus in foe church on 
sexual morality which does not really 
exist; and that in the long term wifi 
undermine foe church’s authority for 
more seriously than could conceivably 
happen by facing up to the issues. For it 
will encourage cynicism, and under- 
mine confidence.

Science report 

How the firefly’s 
lantern aids research 

By A Special Correspondent 


An intriguing experiment by 
scientists in the United Steles 
has led In a way of creating 
plants which glow in foe dark 
in foe same any that foe firefly 
glows. 

While there might be some 
advantage in this invention for 
plants, by attracting pollinat- 
ing insects at mmsoat times, 
the research was done for 
other reasons. 

It was an investigation of 
some O'f the latest fundamental 
ideas in molecnlar generics, 
rather than an attempt to show 
bow to breed a variety of freak 


The. type, of lightproduced . 

by the firefly provides an Meal 
marker to show that the 
genetic characteristics of one 
type of organism had been 
transferred to another. 

The lantern of flu firefly is 
seeH particularly in foe hedge- 
rows of New England id foe 
ssnumar and antnmn. The light 
is generated in an organ of the 
insect that is packed drift an 
enzyme called inriferase. ’ 

Hie enzyme is .essential. for 
stimulating a reaction between 
a molecule called Incifefinand. 
another of the most vital 
molecules for living or- 
ganisms, ATP or adenosine 
triphosphate, which is needed 
in many reactions where en- 
ergy is transferred.' 

The work with firefly was 
reported to a workshop on 
mofecolar genetics in the latest 
of foe series of Gordon re- 
search conferences in the 
United States, by two yosag 
scientists from foe University 
of California at San Diego. 
The gene which carried foe 
code for Inriferase was ckmed 
by- Suresh Snbramani and it 
was pot into a plant- .by 
Stephen HowelL 


Under normal circum- 
stances, genes which carry the 
code for a protein molecule 
sod) as Inriferase are con- 
trolled by other molecules 
found “upstream” of them in 
foedonMe helix of DNA. And, 
those “upstream'' pieces of 
DNA are known as promoters. 

With the advances in ge- 
uetic en^ueering, it« possible 
to separate promoters from foe 
genes they control and then to 
attach them to different genes. 
In this way it is possible for 
gpe A- to be tinned on by a 
signal which normally tarns 
on gene B. One extreme of this 
manipulation . is when a bio- 
chemical is secreted by foe 
action gene in a tissue in which 
that gene is not normally 
found. 

That is what foe San Diego 
team has achieved. Having 
' isolated the gene for tnrif- 
erase, they went on to show 
that this molecule, which 
s tim ulates a reaction giving off 
light can be generated in 
many types of cells under the 
control of different promoters. 

This was done by hooking 
np the Inriferase gene to a 
sequence of promoter DNA for 
a specific plant. The hybrid 
gene-promoter was then in- 
serted into plant, cdls. at an 
early stage of developmentand 
allowed to grow in to. whole 
plants. ... 

The primary use of the 
technique is . as a tool for 
scientists to measure foe arid- 
ity of different . promoters, 
teraose the emission of light is 
such a good indicator. 

The gkw is' discernible to. 
naked eye only in a dark room, 
but it can be captured dearly 
on photographic film, reveal- 
ing foe internal structure of 
foep 2 ant-

OBITUARY 
MR STANLEY ELLIN 

A master of the thriller 


Stanley Ellin, the American Thus 
thriller-writer, died in hospital Circle ( 1 ®58) drew subtle 
in New Yorit on July 31. He for its wdjuMte 

was 69. 

Ellin was one of the very few 


delineation of character ana 
motive in an ostensibly rou- 
tine framework - zhe investiga- 
tion of an allegedly comipt 
police officer. 

r**.u — — -- 7 - demonstrated to sex. 

was apparent to reviewers that component theme ot muroer 
a talent capable of raising that mystery, was not only 
much-abused genre, the thrill- exhausted, but had not, unul 
to the level of, at least, jjj en> tran handled in a man- 


contemporary mystery writers 
whose name does not sit 
uneasily in company with 
Conan Doyle, G. R. Chester- 
ton and Dashiell Hammett. 
And from his earliest days, it 


er, . 

minor art, had made its 
appearance. 

Ellin was in the tradition of 
great story-tellers; his books 
were densely woven and sub- 
tly timed adventures. But both 
his prose and his play of mind 
were things of elegance. Hts 
plojs did not rely, for their 
capacity to enthral, on sheer 
excitement (though with that 
they were richly endowed). 
Rather, there was a funda- 
mental veracity in an Ellin 
story which found a following 
for his books from outside zhe 
ranks of crime fiction buffe. 

They also translated effort- 
lessly onto the cinema screen. 
Directors such as Joseph 
Losey, Claude Chabrol and 
Give Donner all cut their 
teeth on films based on his 
work. 

Ellin was bom in 1916, in 
Brooklyn and educated at 
Brooklyn College, where he 
graduated in 1936. But he did 
a number of jobs - dairy farm 
hand, teacher, worker in the 
Brooklyn Navy Yard - before 
deriding in 1946 to devote 
himself to writing; By this 
time his first book, a collec- 
tion of short stories, had 
already been published. 

This announced to readers 
an, at least, distinctive voice, 
an impresssion its successors 
reinforced and amplified. 


ncr which so folly wpforcd 
sexual psychology. “When w 
doubt” ran Raymond 
Chandler’s dictum, “have a 
man come through die door 
with a gun in his hand, fclhtf 
was capable of this, too, but n 
was his everyday plausibility 
that was his hallmark. 

Ellin was a far ay from the 
typical “novd-a-ycar” roan. 
In the Brooklyn apartment 
where he lived for much offers 
life he worked eight hours a 
day with constant revision 
and much thought about the 

J irecise effects he was striving 
or. 

Of plot - of which he was 
such a master - he used to say: 
“It’s both the most important 
and the least important pan of 
the book. I defy any reader to 
tell me the plots of the books 
he has loved most; it’s the’ 
ambience they recall'* 

Among the many film suc- 
cesses from his books were 
The Big Night (from Dreadful 
Summit, 1948), starring John 
Barrymore, Jn Nothinghut the 
Best (from a story The Best of 
Everything. 1952), starring. 
Alan Bates; and The House of 
Cards (from the book of the 
same name. 1967), starring 
Orson Welles. 

Ellin's last novel. Very Old 
Money, appeared in 1985. 


MR ROY COHN 


Mr Roy Cohn, the New 
York attorney who for a brief 
period in the 1950s was one of 
the best-known figures in the 
world, died on August 2 al 
Beihesda, Maryland, aged 59. 

The immediate cause of death 
-was cardio-pulmonary arrest, 
but he had been treated by 
AIDS specialists since 1984. 

.Though he never regained 
the universal, notoriety that 
came to him as assistant to the 
witch-hunting Senator Joseph 
McCarthy, be continued to 
prosper in his profession until, 
in the last months of his life, 
he was eventually disbarred. 

Roy Marcus Cohn was born 
in the Bronx on February 20, 

1927, the only child of a New 
York State supreme court 
judge. He was a precocious 
hoy, who got through both 
college and law school at 
Columbia in less than four 
years, graduating at 20 . 

As an assistant federal pros- 
ecutor in New York he helped 
to prosecute American com- 
munists for conspiracy, and jn 
1951 look part in the trial that 
resulted in the Rosen bergs' 
conviction and execution. In 
early 1953 he was retained as 
chief counsel to Senator 
McCarthy's permanent Senate 
sub-committee on investiga- 
tions, then at*ihe height of its 
ruthless and indiscriminate 
pursuit of communists in the 
US- government and aimed 
forces. 

'Soon 7 after joining McCar- 
thy, Cohn went on a tour of 
Europe to investigate US in- 
formation services. His com- 
panion on the trip was a rich 
young friend and unpaid con- 
sultant to the sub-committee, 

G. David Schine, and the 
partnership of Cohn and 
Schine became a fhmiliar fea- 
ture of foe McCarthy phenom- 
enon, inspiring disgust and 
derision . in about- equal 
proportions. . . 

The partnership was, how- 
ever, in due course Cohn's 
undoing,' so far as the sub- 
committee was concerned, be- 
cause when in .late 1953 
Schine was drafted for army 
sendee Cohn's demand that 
he be granted- special privi- 
leges led to a clash with foe 
Eisenhower administration. 

After 36 days of televised 
hearings, during which -Mc- 
Carthy and Cohn charged the , and a capacity to charm when 
Aroiy with coddling commit- he did n« repel. In the last 


on his office wall a photograph 
of himself whispering in the 
ear of the junior Senator from 
Wisconsin. 

Returning to law practice in 
New York, he specialised in 
spectacular divorce cases, es- 
tate battles and large-scale 
criminal proceedings. His cli- 
ents at one time or another 
included J. Edgar Hoover, 
Cardinal Terence Cooke, 
Andy Warhol, Bianca Jagger, 
Aristotle Onassis and foe Ma- 
fia “boss of bosses” Carmine 
Galante. One client the real 
estate mogul Donald Trump, 
said of him: “If you need 
someone to get vicious to- 
wards an opponent you get 
Roy. People wijl drop a .suit 
just by getting a letter with 
Roy’s name at the bottom." 

In the early 1960s the 
Justice Department under 
Robert F. Kennedy tried to 
“get" him, but couJd not put 

S ' er a plausible case. 

edy had lakea against 
him when they were both 
working for McCarthy). Be- 
tween 1964 and 1970 repeated 
attempts by Federal prosecu- 
tors to have him convicted of 
fraud, blackmail and perjury 
were equally unsuccessful- But 
in June of this year he was 
found guilty on three counts of 
misconduct and disbarred. He 
was also feeing a claim by the 
Inland Revenue Services for 
nearly 57 million in unpaid 
taxes. 

Though he had residences 
in Manhattan. Washington 
DC, New England and Aca- 
pulco, drove a Bentley, a Rolls 
Royce and a Cadillac, flew a 
J 2 ~seat private plane, and had 
living expenses of about 
$500,000 a year, he. main- 
tained that ibe houses and 
vehicles were owned by ids 
firm or fey friends; and that he 
bad no tank accounts, stocks ; 
or assets of any kind. 

He published four books: 
McCarthy, A Foolfor a Client , 
The Answer to Tail Gunner 
Joe and How to Stand Up for 
your Rights - and Win. At the 
time of his death, he was 
working on his memoirs. 

He was unmarried, and in 
feet homosexual, though he 
denied h and treated it as a 
communist smear. Whatever 
his faults, he had intelligence 


nists and hiding sexual devi- 
ants, Cohn was forced to 
resign by a 4-3 vote of the sub- 
committee. 

As a memento ofhis.service 
to 'McCarthy be always kept 


decade of his life he became’ 
quite a social Hon in New 
York. He also had courage, 
which showed in his determi- 
nation to' keep going durixMc . 
his final illness.

dances for the last three years has

with more first-time theatre-goers 
than ever before". As president of 
West End Theatre, perhaps Mr 
Swash could hardly say anything 
else. True or not, his colleagues

August programme amounts to a

Casken, ontheoiberhand, has ' 
so far concentrated more on 
instrumental pieces. 

Perhaps his To. Fields We 
Have Not Known should be ■ 
heard- as a : fivfr-moyement 
choral sonata! using voices as'

(translating The Seafarer), ^

behind them only the excuse 
for a sense of place, a sense of 
the wide emptiness: of the" 
Northumbrian coast! Occ&- : 
sionatiy the place is !not too : 
well distinguished from the 
Orkney of Mfexwell Davies, V 
particularly as. revealed iu his' ' 
West&Iings, but the “motet- ' 
canon -with douds" of the 


■J. •• -a . 

fourth'- movement is , very: 
beautiful and might con-, 
cei vafily stand as an anthem in 
its own right 

With Swayne’s Missa 
Tiburtina we are much more 
definitely • in- the “world of - 
church-music, notwithstand^- 
ing the African "borrowings," 
which- might -even seem-dr 
. rigupur to those who remem- 
ber such things as the Missa 
~ Luba. Sadly I cannot think 
Swayne adds much to that 
achievement apart from some 
Glass-type repetitive glow, 
and some radiant harmony 
that had -the -BBC - Singers 
malting a splendid noise, as 
ttieji (fid -in Bruckner and the 
after-all quite Brucknerian 
WolFoFthe Eicbendorff sacred 
songs. Swayne’s title, by the 
way, is to indicate that this is a 
Tiber mass, although it is 
perhaps the Rubicon that this 
quixotic composer should be - 
thinking about crossing.

Yet Pinnock has his un-

This short setting of wintry 
verses by the American Wal- 
lace Stevens is distinguished 
by the precise and poetically 
calculated- instrumental ef- 
fects, particularly matters of 
dividedsixj hg!textuxes, varied 
tone' : colours:; and minutely 
shaded -dynamics/ Ii is . a 
.delicate and- fascinating 
mood-picture to an extent 
that, if some instrumental 
lines can be beard at all they 
must perhaps be too loud. 

. If lhat wasa problem for the 
players, it-was not apparent in 
the. assured; artel -carefully' di- 
rected performance. Tbe so- 
prano sounded more at ease in 
this' workS? finwlrawn Vocal 
line than in Mozart's ebneert , 
aria “Non temer, amato 
bene", KiOS, where the' top 
and bottom of the wide range 
required ofher was not always 
firmly in focus. Moreover; 
although . the. introductory 
recitative was colourfully 
sung. . the rondo, aria itself 
lacked contrast- . of' pace and" 
emotional fervour. ' 

Its keyboard element was 
neatly contributed by Imogen 
Cooper, who then went on to' 
give a performance of the C 
major Piano Concerto, K4I5 r 
that was, notable for its un- 
ruffled- grace, of line,, clean 
articulation of the fastest: fin-' 
geiupassages, and the krad of 
styush - phrasing _ that ~ could 
turo even the quiet, ending, 
unusual in Mozart, into an 
exquisite delight Mr Boet- 
tcher was on ' the whole con- 
tent to keep his view of 
Mozart small in scale and 
modest in dynamics, with foe

of apartheid since the heads of 
government meeting in Nas- 
sau last October. He said that 
consideration of what further 
measures should be taken will 
take place today and added: 

"Today was not a day for 
startling conclusions.” 

British officials said that in 
their bilateral meetings with 
Mrs Thatcher the Common- 
wealth leaders had not been 
pressing the case for all-out 
economic sanctions, to which 
they know she is opposed. 
That in itself is regarded as 


something of a victory for the 
Prime Minister. 

In all her talks she empha- 
sized that she was anxious to 
listen to their views. She 
hoped they would be 
approaching the meeting in a 
calm and restrained manner. 

British officials also pointed 
out that the idea of co- 
ordination outside the 
Commonwealth was part of 
the Nassau declaration. After 
their first session last night. 
Commonwealth leaders dined 
with the Queen at Bucking- 
ham Palace.

operating as far south as 
Walvis Bay. 

In the other explosion, near 
Muizenberg. south of Cape 
Town, a limpet mine exploded 
in a liner-bin attached to a 
traffic "stop” sign outside a 
post office, slightly injuring 
the hand of the white 
postmaster. 

Meanwhile, the Govern- 
ment appears to have re- 
scinded a recently-announced 
reform of the Group Areas 
Act. which allowed, or seemed 
I to allow, black students 
1 attending universities in white 
areas to live in residences on 


campus without having to 
apply for a special permit to 
do so. 

Now, however, the Govern- 
ment has announced that, 
because of a “clerical error.” 
the notice to this effect pub- 
lished in the Government Ga- 
zette in June omitted to 
stipulate that the exemption 
only applied for the purpose of 
“daily attending academic 
lectures”, and not to residence 
on campus. 

• Police wounded: Two 
policemen were seriously 
wounded in-an ambush in the 
black township of Siyalemba, - 
east of Johannesburg, r\p 
reports). 


A drive is on in East Anglia 
to give Thomas Gainsborough, 
die artist, a greater share or 
the limelight long dominated 
by his neighbour, John Con- 
stable, English land- 

scape painters. 

Tourism and interest in the 
area’s arts are also to be 
boosted following a recent 
report by two private consul- 
tants, which recommended a 
shake-up and expansion at 
Gainsborough's House in 
Sudbury. 

A £300,000 appeal, beaded 
by Sir Hugh Casson, former 
president of the Royal Acad- 
emy, has been launched to 
improve the gallery for tbe 
crowds of visitors expected for 
the- bicentennial of the artist’s 
death in 1988. 

At the same time, “Gains- 
borough and Constable 
Country” will be marketed — 
and won't just concentrate on 
Constable. The areas are ad- 
jacent to each other on the 
Snffolk-Essex border, but vis- 
itors have flocked to 
Constable’s Dedham Vale, 
with its attractions such as. 
Flatford Mill and Willy Lott’s 
House, while often m freeing 
Gainsborough’s House near 
by- 

Now the appeal hopes to 
change that. Gainsborough’s 
House, a Georgian budding In 
the centre of Sudbury, is the 
only important artist's birth- . 
place open to tbe public in the 
cotmhy. It is ran by a char- 
itable trust, the Gains- 


borough’s House Society, 
which has already identified a 
third of the cash needed. The, 
house contains more works by 
Gainsborough than any other 
gallery, many from his Suffolk 
period. 

Hie consultants, John and 
Ella Halkes, of the Newlyn 
Orion Gallery in Cornwall, 
were called zn earlier this year 
after a financial crisis which 
may have dosed the bouse but 
for the help of Suffolk County 
Conned. 

Their report says tbe house 
is now poised to become a key 
arts centre, in an area which 
badly needs one, and should 
gain national recognition for 
its “unique” quality. 

Mr Hugh Betsey, the cu- 
rator, is delighted with tbe 
report, even though expanded 
gall ery space wdl mean his 
taking outside accommoda- 
tion. “I am most heartened, 
and hope onr funding bodies, 
and the appeal, can now live up 
to the hope the report has for 
our potential,” he said.

Tom Blacksiock lowered 
himself io the ground with a 
Jack of effort which belied ms 
74 years. He was a tall, white- 
haired man whose brown 
wrinkled neck peeped like 
that of a tortoise from his 
clean white shirt, but His huge 
hands were as powerful as 
those of anv voung nun. 

He sat beneath the broad- 
leafed Spanish oak and began 
to whittle with a well-worn 
pocket knife at one of its 
fallen twigs. The southern 
sun was hot, the huge neon 
thermometer on the bank in 
the nearby township read 97 
degrees. 

‘ His battered old straw hat 
afforded little protection, and 
he was glad of the excuse to 
take a break from the chore of 
fencing off the lumber land 
on his 9Q0-acre farm in Hah 
County to the north of 
Atlanta. 

“Course, there was 
That was a pretty bad year, 
yup. But this is the worst. 
Worst in my lifetime.” 
Slowly and methodically he 
whittled the slick entirely 
away. 

Alt around him the fields 
•were parched and brown. 
There had been a little rain in 
the days, before but only 
enough to spray an insubstan- 
tial haze of green across the 
withered pasture. H was — 
farmers, meterologists, 
politicans and agricultural 
historians agreed — the worst 
drought for more than a 
ceniurv in the southern states 
of the USA. 

On Tom Blackstock's farm 
rain has been in short supply 
for more than 12 months; 
only 20in of the normal 5bin 
have fallen. On top of that 
had come the record tem- 
peratures. For the past 26 
days the thermometers had 
not fallen below the mid- 
nineties. drying out die land 
almost entirely. 

So far 30 people have died 
from the heat. The governors 
of six of the southern states 
have asked Washington to 
declare the region a disaster 
area. 

Hundreds of thousands of 
chickens have suffocated in 
their sheds. Fish have died in 
their shrinking ponds and 
rivers. Ancient oak trees are 
withering. Crops have shriv- 


elled on such a scale that their 
loss to date is estimated at S2 
billion. E\en the grass is 
d> ing. depriv mg thousands of 
cattle of their fodder. 

The soil is baked so solid 
that cenielerx crews have, 
despite tight restrictions on 
. the use of water, been forced 
to pour the increasingly pre- 
cious liquid into the ground 
to make it soft enough io dig 
the graves. 

“Back in '25 there was an 
old man over the hill. As l 
remember it. he had some 20 
or 30 cattle. As the drought 
wen! on he sold 'em. one at a 
lime to bus fodder to feed the 
rest. End of that drought, he 
didn't has c but two of them 
left. Mi grandaddy who 
bought this farm jest after the 
Civ A War said them two had 
eaten all the others.” 

Sixty years later the process 
is repeating itself. Stockmen 
and state agriculture officials 
estimate that nine out of ten 
cattlemen are this week sell- 
ins. They have exhausted the 
pasture, they have used up all 
I he hay stored from last year, 
and they have produced none 
to get them through the 
winter months even if tbe 
cattle survive the rest of the 
dedicating summer. 

Some lit Lie relief is on hand 
from hay generously donated 
by farmers in the north and 
west, but the high cost of 
transport means that the 
amounts arriving are but a 
token. 

Toro Blacksiock is one of 
the lucky ones. In good years 
he sells Jia>. too. This year the 

hay meadows, normally cut 

three times, have yielded 
only a few inches. 

Beneath the old oak tree 
the old farmer sighed as he 
rose to his feel. "Gotta get 
.this fencing finished.” Until 
now he has .never needed to 
enclose his timber patch, but 
the point has came when 
even the litlle grass inside the 
wood will be needed for 
grazing. 

“It ain't quite the last 
option.” he said, ejecting a 
huge gob of tobacco spittle 
which began to evaporate in 
the broiling heat oven as he 
spoke. “But it's pretty darn 
close.”

Nature Notes 


Moorhens are still -building 
nests of reed and sedge in the 
shallow .waters of ponds: these 
are birds that are rearing a 
second or even a third brood. 
Many other species are drifting 
away from their nesting areas. 
Yellow wagtails are flocking in 
the pastures, feeding on the 
insects disturbed by tbe cattle's 
feet. Parties of linnets and 
goldfinches travel the country- 
side, twittering musically, in 
search of dandelion seeds and 
other farmland weeds. 

Lapwings are losing their 
summer plumage and looking 
grey around the neck: many are 
moving to the coast Kestrels 
hover over new sites, but few of 
them go very far from their 
summer home, apart from 
Continental binds that are start- 
ing to come into Scotland- 

Many harmless, nettle-like 
plants are in flower they include 
black horehound. which has 
pinkish-purple flowers, growing 
up the stem among dusky 
leaves, and a rank smell; the 
short, violet-flowered self-heal; 
and marsh woundwort, a tall 
and striking purple flower of the 
water’s edge. In some places 
comfrey is still in flower, but 
where it is dying fine patterns 
appear on the dry leaves. Ash 
trees have a dappled look.

Dixons in 
£50m deal 
with Thorn 

Dixons Group, the retailer, 
has signed a £50 million 
contract with Thom EMI 
which, will supply 200,000 
colour television sets to "be 
sold in Dixons' outlets, 
including Power Crty and 
Currys. The sets, which repre- 
sent about TO per cent of the 
annual wiling market, will be 
sold under a new group brand 
name as yet unannounced. 

Dixons says it is the largest 
ever such deal signed with a 
British manufacturer. It fol- 
lows a similar arrangement 
last year when Dixons bought 
£J0 million of home comput- 
ers firom Sir Give Sinclair’s 
Sinclair Research. Dixons’ 
comment on the Thom EMI 
deal was that it was the only 
UK retailer which could sell 
such a great volume. 


First Chinese 
bankruptcy 
; since 1949 

*. Beijing (Reuter) — A factory 
in northeast China has been 
formally declared bankrupt 
the first company officially 
wound up since the Com- 
munist takeover in 1949. the 
New China .News .Agency 
reported. _ ;• • r - •••*?■ . - 

- Theigeney saidThie-Shen-. 
yang explosion-proof .appa- 
ratus factory's assets worth 
302,000 yuan (£55,000) would 


be sold off and the proceeds 
divided among the 219 cred- 
itors who are owed more than 
500,000 yuan. 

~ Shenyang is the, first city in 
China to enact bankruptcy 
legislation and the case is 
-being watched -closely 
nationwide. 

■ Under the rules, a loss- 
making firm is given a warn- 
ing by the city government 
and if it does not improve its 
performance within a year and 
its debts are then greater than 
its assets, it is declared bank- 
rupt. The factory was criti- 
cized for bad management 
resulting in losses over a 
number of years. 


Punt devalued 
by 8% 

within EMS 

■ Irish government officials 
■expect the punt to trade 
against sterling at between 85p 
'and 90p when foreign ex- 
changes reopen in the republic 
tomorrow after the bank holi- 
jday weekend devaluation of 
the Irish currency. ■ 

The 8 per cent devaluation 
.against other EMS currencies 
-was requested, by _lhe . Irish. 
government. 

At dose of business on 
Triday the punt was worth 
•about 95p sterling against 78p 
,'a.year ago. 

Although Britain is not in 
the EMS, the move will have a 
knock-on effect an the value 
of the punt against sterling 
and the dollar. 

The steady rise of the punt 
against the declining dollar 
and sterling petrocurrencies 
had threatened disaster for 
Irish exporters. Economists 
estimate that half of the 
country's foreign trade is in 
these two currencies.

By Judith Hartley 

Plessey,, the eleclronics 
company, win unveil details 
tomorrow of new links with 
Westinghouse Electric 
Corporation, the American 
electronics and advanced' 
technology group. 

Westinghouse win provide 
£250 million worth - of 
electronics and radar - for 
Boeing’s early warning aircraft 
if the manufacturer wins a 
contract for six Royal Air 
Force planes.. Plessey .would 
share in tfiework.. ; . . . 

- The announcement looks 

timed to give the maximum 

embarrassment to GEC in a 
week when it is widely be- 
lieved that Mr Paul Channon, 
the Secretary of - State for 
Trade and -Industry, will veto 
its hostile £1.18 billion bid for 
Plessey.. 

The- Westin ghouse/Plessey 
work for Boeing would be a 
strong challenge to GECs 
troublesome radar work for 
the rival Nimrod aircraft 

The Government will de- 
cide in October which of 
several contenders, including 
the Boeing and Nimrod air- 
craft wifi be bought for the - 
RoyalAfr Force. . . .. 

The Boeing early warning 



Above: Plessey’s Sir John 
Clark. Befaxc the Mink* 
Mr Pan! Channon 

<*W 



aircraft is favourite to win the 
.contract. ... " 

It is believed that the fink 
•forged- between Plessey. and. 


Westinghouse will go much 
deeper than the Boeing deal 

The two companies hope to 
work together on developing 

- new: airborne radar defence 
systems which could be sold to 

- the Nito and American forces' 

early warning planes. 

Westinghouse supplies high 
technology defence systems 
for aircraft. It manufactures 
nuclear energy systems and 
has a well-developed robotics 
industry. It has already won 
several US government con- 
tracts; 

The Trade and Industry 
Secretary is expected to im- 
pose conditions if he stops 
GECs bid for Plessey. Mr 
Channon may wish to see 
GECs System X telephone 
exchange company sold to 
Plessey in return for GEC 
taking a 29.9 per cent stake in 
Plessey. 

Such a move is unlikely to. 
be welcome to the Plessey 
board and its chairman. Sir 
John Clark. 

It would, however, rational- 
ize the telecommunications 
work, pleasing British 
Telecom, the customer for 
System X, while a veto on the 
takeover would ensure that 
die Ministry of Defence would 
still-have competitive tender- 
ingforits contracts. -

Reagan faces key 
protectionist fight 

Dom Bailey Morris, -Washington .. .. 



John Butcher his hopes 
hare been disappointed 


On the ere of a crucial vote 
in the US House of Repre- 
sentatives, the White House 
has launched an intense cam- 
paign to halt the passage this 
wedc of textile legislation 
which ft regards as a key test 
of the protectionist mood in 
Congress. .. ~ 

House members will fote.oa 
Wednesday /on ji measure to 
[override President Reagan^s 
veto of restrictive textile leg- 
islation which would cut im- 
ports from developing 
countries by more than 30 per 
cent. 

President Reagan, m his 
weekly .radio address to the 
nation.- said 
legislation” would not only 
sour, relations with the 
country's trading partners but 
also cost American consumers 
more than $44 trillion a year in 
higher dothing costs. 

The intensity of the White 
House campaign reflects the 
problems arising .from 
America's- 5150 bOboa trade 
deficit and moonting criticism 
of the Administration's han- 
dling of trade issues-Canada 
and Australia, have also 
strongly protested against the 
Administration's trade 
policies. . 

Only a week ago, House 
supporters of the textile Bifi 
said they were short of the 
two-thirds majority necessary 
to override Mr Reagan's veto 
of a Bill aimed largely at 
imports from Korea. Taiwan 


and Houg Koag. But tint was 
before the Administration an- 
nounced a new textile agree- 
ment with South Africa which 
provoked a storm in Congress. 

White House officials said

Mr Paul Volcker, die Fed-

Setback for Americans 9 bid to 
launch new mortgage market 


By Graham Searjeant, F inancial Editor 


The prospects for an early 
start to a secondary mortgage 
market in this country have 
been setback by the poor 
performance of the Mortgage 
Corporation, the home loans 
subsidiary of Salomon Broth- 
ers, since its launch in April 
Mortgage Corporation was 
set up with the aim of collect- 
ing mortgage loans which 
could be packaged into securi- 
ties and sold to investors in 
Britain and abroad. Snch a 
market already exists in the 
US. The Salomon move 
seemed likely to be the first 
attempt to create one in 

Britain. • v 

[ - Since its inception, how- 


ever, the Mortgage Corpora- 
tion has been unable to lend as 
much money to homebuyers 
as it wants. According to 
Royal Insurance and Sun 
Alliance; the two insurance 
companies acting as agents for 
selling the company's endow- 
ment mortgages, lending has 
been sluggish. 

Mortgage Corporation has 
spent large sums on TV and 
newspaper advertising in a 
campaign fronted by Mr Barry 
Norman, the film critic. But 
the plan to bring in business 
on a direct response basis has 
so fer failed to produce a large 
volume, of lending. . • • 

The two insurers confirm. 


however, that business has 
picked up since the company 
cut its mortgage rate to 10.25 
percent a month ago. It is now 
offering the lowest home loan 
rate on the market 
- Mr. Hugh Freedberg, chief 
executive of Mortgage 
Corporation, said: “We will 
probably bold back on issuing 
our first mortgage backed 
securities until the first quar- 
ter of 1987. We have to wait 
long enough for our loans to 
receive a credit rating from 
.Standard & Poors." He added: 
“We are on course to meet our 
£500 million lending target 
within the first year to 18 
months. 


Profit-link 
path to new 
pay policy 

. . By Onr OtyStoff - 

The Chancellor's, plans to 
introduce tax relieved profit-, 
sharing into industry could 
pave the way for a new kind of 
permanent pay policy. Mr 
Gavyn Davies, chief UK 
economist at the securities 
-dealer Goldman Sachs, argues | 
in apaperpublisbed today; - r 

Writing -in. his personal 
capacity; Mr Davies' rays that 
profit-sharing would be out- 
side a national pay norm and 
would therefore allow the 
flexibility which has been 
missing in previous incomes 
policies and allow the labour 
market to work. - 

The problem of excessive 
pay increases has re-emerged 
despite felling inflation, high 
unemployment and weak 
trade unions, Mr Davies says. 
Because of these changed 
circumstances, however, it 
should be easier to deal with 
than in the late 1970s. Under 
ibe proposed - pay plan, a 
heavy penalty would be im- 
posed on companies- whicb- 
ignored a : national pay norm 
excqrt where payments were 
justified by genuine profit- 
sharing schemes. 

“This would give a much 
greater boost to profit sharing 
that the Chancellor's rather 
meagre tax incentives for 
employees”, he says. 

The Davies proposals, a 
development of ideas put 
forward by Professor Richard 
Layard, would seek to hold 
basic pay deals at a constant 
level 2 to 3 per cent above a 
very low or zero rate of 
inflation. % 

The scheme would be 
supplemented by tax cuts to 
avoid, the impression that the 
policy was designed to cm real 
wages . •_ . • • - •

eight-mile section of the A27

Flotation cash 
limit set to rise 


By Carol Ferguson 


The Committee .on Quota- 
tions is expected to present its 
definitive proposals on flota- 
tions and pre-emptive rights 
to the Stock Exchange Council 
at its meeting tomorrow. 

This follows the Discussion 
. Paper oh Flotations and Pre- 
emptive Rights,- published in 
January. 7" 

: In the case of flotations, the 
committee is likely to confirm 
that the offer for sale is the 
best method of introducing 
new companies to fisting. 

Nevertheless, the limit of £3 
million, the maximum 
amount that ran be placed in a 
flotation,* looks like being 
increased, bat by less than the 
£25 million suggested in the 
discussion paper. 

In the case of pre-emptive 
rights, it is expected that 
companies will be required to 
seek authority each year from 
shareholders to waive them. 

This is more stringent .titan 


requirement to' gain approval 
for each individual deal will 
be abolished. 

In the battle for greater 
flexibility as to how compa- 
nies raise equity capital the 
Investor Protection Commit- 
tees, who represent the institu- 
tional shareholders, have been 
.winning,.. 

They [have - already suc- 
ceeded' in paiticular instances 
in gaining a bigger share of 
vendor placings for sharehold- 
ers, for example, in Dee 
Corporation's bid for Fine 
Fare. 

As one corporate financier 
put it yesterday: “The ques- 
tion is. will companies man- 
age to' force the institutions to 
allow them to raise equity by 
way of American-style bought 
deals? 

“The I PCs, are very power- 
ful and they seem to be 
making it tougher" 

Analysis, page 17 




allows the authority to run for 
five years. 

It looks as if there will be no 
monetary limits on further 
issues of equity capital. 

But what will be of particu- 
lar interest will be whether the 


shares attracted applications for 
3.61 million, including those 
from employees. Applications 
for up to 350,000 shares will be 
allotted in fuIL Those for more 
than 350.000 will receive 94.7 
per cent of the number applied 
for. 


Sterling 
faces 
new oil 
pressure 

By Otur Financial Editor 

The Organization of Petro- 
leum Exporting Countries 
opened its seventh day of 
meetings in Geneva last night 
amid continued last-minute 
wranglings by members over 
their quotas and voluntary 
cuts in production. 

Further meetings are likely 
today to patch up a short-term 
agreement on voluntary cuts 
as the prospect of agreement 
on formal quotas receded. 

The continued talks, at- 
tended Iasi night only by 
heads of delegation, give some 
hope of an interim agreement 
aimed at stabilizing or raising 
oil prices, but failure to reach a 
conclusion before markets 
open is likely to pul further 
pressure on sterling. 

The cartel had hoped to 
amass voluntary cuts totalling 
2 million barrels a day. Last 
night, however. Dr Arturo 
Hernandez Grisanti. the 
Venezuelan oil minister, said 
that his country could offer 
only a symbolic and insignifi- 
cant cut. The onus, he said, 
was on other countries that 
had exceeded their quotas to 
offer more. 

Saudi Arabia, which has 
1 previously been the swing 
producer and borne the brunt 
of cuts, is again on the 
defensive. Its spokesman said 
last night that its oil minister. 
Sheikh Ahmed Zaki Yamani. 
had received government or- 
ders not to accept cuts in 
output below the minimum 
needed for its development. 

“At the same time, il has no 
objections to any country 
producing as much as it 
needs,” he said. 

Opec &urces claimed that 
Sheikh Yamani had insisted 
on a quota of at least 5 million 
barrels a day. compared with 
the present Saudi quota of 
4.35 million. Kuwait, the 
United Arab Emirates and 
Qatar are also thought to be 
unhappy about their quotas. 

After Friday’s meetings, 
each delegate was asked to 
stale -how much oil they 
wanted to produce over , the 
next two to -three months and 
this was reported to a five- 
nation panelon Saturday. 

The new. more modest 
approach came after Algeria's 
oil minister. M. Belkacem 
Nabi, formally withdrew the 
Algerian six-point plan for 
production and quota policy 
because there was no chance 
of an agreement on the quotas 
set at the previous conference 
at Brioni in Yugoslavia. 

A tentative plan for a 
summit of Opec heads of state 
had to be abandoned when it 
became clear that the warring 
Iraqis and Iranians would 
refuse to meet each other at 
that level. 

The conference is taking 
place when some countries, 
especially those with heavy 
grades of crude oil, have been 
suffering considerably lower 
prices even than in the North 
Sea. 


Pubs threat if inquiry cuts tie 


By Derek Harris, Industrial Editor 


Warnings of a rash of {mb 
closures and threats to cut- 
back investment are being 
made as- Sir -Gordon Borne, 
director general of Fair Trad- 
ing, prepares today to send 0 m 
brewing industry for a fresh 
investigation by the Monopo- 
lies and Mergers Comdission. 

If this Inds to the dis- 
mantfing of .the tied house 
system, smaller brewers, es- 
pecially reliant on tied pubs, 
would also be at risk, it is 
argued. 

Hundreds of pubs could face 
closure if the tied system is 
scrapped, according to the 
National Union of licensed 
Victuallers, foe trade associ- 
ation for tenants of breweiy- 
owned pubs. There are about 
33,000 tenanted pubs and 
another 12,000 managed 


Although foe NULV cam- 
paigned for arelaxatioix of ibe. 
tie on wines aud spirits —now 
-eased through EEC action — ft 
wants the tie on beer retained 
while campaigning for detailed 
improvements to help tenants. 
It is especially worried that 
without brewery back-up pnbs 
would fall into disrepair be- 
cause there is no other ready 
source of fends at reasonable 
cost. 

A warning that if there is a 
question mark oyer the future 
of the tie, some brewers may 
have to reassess die extent of 
their investment in their pnbs 
has come from the Brewers' 
Society. 

Britain’s 70 brewers have 
plans for spending £2,400 
millio n on pnb improvements 
over the next three yean. 

Free . trade on-licences. 


mostly pnbs, .bare increased 
.by 10 , 000 . in fewer than 10 
years and now number 33,000 
or 42 per cent of pubs. 

Britain's system of tenant- 
run pnbs tied to a brewer has 
existed for more than 100 
years and has already survived 
a 1969 monopolies investiga- 
tion and subsequent dose 
surveillance by the Price 
Commission. In foe seventies 
nearly 1,000 pubs were 
swapped among foe brewers to 
reduce concentrations of local 
ownership. 

Guinness, which like 
Carls berg with its Northamp- 
ton lagw production, has no 
tied pnbs, could benefit from 
easing of the tie. 

- But more open competition 
could be exploited by brewers 
wjth strong nati nnal brands 
which & another reason, SO the 


argument goes, why smaller 
brewers could suffer. The big 
national brewers sue Bass (foe 
largest), AJIied-Lyons, 
Whitbread, Grand 

Metropolitan's Watney 
Mann, Hanson Trust's Cour- 
age and Scottish & Newcastle. 

Sir Gordon U expected to 
ask the commission to look at 
beer supply but has already 
made dear his concern that 
the tied house system may 
reduce consumer choice, in- 
hibit competition and push op 
prices. 

There will be 14 days during 
which the Department of 
Trade and Industry, if im- 
pressed by trade representa- 
tions. might quash the 
investigation but no minister 
has ever before sidetracked 
that, sort of monopoly 
reference.

London prices are .20% higher than a year agp. 

The South-East’s have gone up 16.1%. Across Britain

So you'll be delighted with three new mortgages for people 
wanting £50,000 (or a great deal more). 

Bel gravia is a unique new ‘cap and collar’ mortgage. 

Belgravia rates go up and down 
with national levels, but with this 
difference: 

For the first 5 years, you get 
guaranteed maximum and 
minimum rates. Currently, these 
are 11% and 8-5%.

BUSINESS AND FINANCE 


THE TIMES MONDAY AUGUST 4 1986 


( USM REVIEW ) 

Partnership key to expansion 


Small property and building 
companies on the unlisted 
securities market face a peren- 
nial problem of cash con- 
straints limiting their 
opportunities for expansion. 

One of the favourite routes 
adopted by companies to 
circumvent this has been joint 
development partnerships 
with institutional investors for 
commercial projects. Gen- 
erally. the institutions will 
acq iii re the development upon 
completion while the property 
company participates in the 
development profits.; . 

Trench erwood, the west 

Berkshire group, provided an 
illustration of this trend last, 
week when, it announced the 
formation of a commercial 
development partnership with 
Postel for a 48.000 sq ft office 
scheme in the centre of 
Newbury. The proposal is to 
create a village concept office^ 
development with raised 
pedestrian walkways' in the' 
town's conservation area;' 
This marks the latest move in 
Trencherwood's development 
of its commercial arm. The 


company was founded in 1971 
by its chairman, John 
Noigate. as a house builder 
based in- Newbury.lt now 
builds about 350 units a year,: 
predominately in the middle- 
range of housing market. It 
has a substantial land bank in 
the west Berkshire area with 
ter^year options. 

The commercial side also 
has been rapidly developed 
over the last four years with 
both office and shopping 
: developments. It is currently 
developing a supermarket on 
the edge of Newbury as part of 
a technology park' which -may- 
be the first site chosen' for a 
joint Marks and Spencer and 
Tesco project 

Interim results for the six 
months to die end of April are 
due to be announced this 
month and are likely to. con- 
firm.foat the group is well on 
the way to more than £4 
million pretax profit in the- 
current year. This wbuEd give' 
earnings per share of 30p and . 
leave the shares at 450p on a 
prospective multiple of IS 
times. 


Profits for 1986-87 could be 
_ in the region of£5 million and 
the shares are essentially a 
play on the continuing 
development of the Severn 
Valley-. 

- With the onset of the Au- 
' gust holiday period new issues 

on the USM are slowing to a 
trickle. The reception for re- 
cent offerings has produced 
the occasional successes' such 
as GBAM, Anglia Secure 
Homes and -Adas Group, all 
trading.. . at reasonable 
premiums. . 

- - Many of the others, how- 
ever, are struggling around 
iheir issue price or it a small 
discount. Marina Develop- 
ments Group, where dealings 
start today, was under-sub- 
scribed, for instance, on the 
offer for sale and it is expected 
that these shares will open at a 
discount. 

Investors have-been spoilt 
for' choice, in - the last lew 
.months as companies ' have 
rushed to raise money ahead 
of the big bang period. The 
Autumn will see major flota- 
tions from the TSB and Brit- 


ish Gas and these, together 
with the uncertainty created 
by the stock market changes, 
will probably reduce the flow 
of new issues on the secondary 
market in the second half of 
the year, allowing a useful 
period of digestion. 

Holmes & Marchan t, the 
sales promotion group which 
has announced its intention to 
move to a full listing after 14 
months on the USM, believes 
it will be followed by a wider 
range of investors oh the main 
market and is also interested 
in. improving liquidity «r its 
Caress. : 

- The additional shares which 
have just been placed in the 
market will help to achieve the 
latter goal but size and growth 
prospects are the key to 
attracting a wide range of 
investor interest rather than 
the class of share listing. -

US NOTEBOOK 

Fed will 
not face 
realities 

From Maxwell Newton 
New York • 

The pace of the US economy 
continued to slow in June and 
July. The revised index of 
leading Indicators was down 
0.1 per cent in May and June. 
The rate of increase of payroll 

employment in the three 

months to July was down 40 
per cent on the average of 1985 
and down . 32 per emit on: the 
average of ihe-_first four 
months of J986. 

Factory orders continued to 
dedine-There has been a drop 
of almost 5 per cent in all 
factory orders since January 

and a drop of 5 per emit in 
d arable goods orders. Non- 
durable goods orders have 
dropped 5.1 per cent 

This - confirms .the general 

impression of steady decay in 
the majndbctnring sector, a 
trend partially concealed by 
erroneous figures relation to 
June durab! 
released last 

There was a massive trade 
deficit of more than $14 hOlkm 
in June — including $2 billion 
Of gold shipments to Japan 
.without which the. deficit 
would have exceeded $l6 bfl- 
lion. 

A farther big weakening of 
die dollar will have to occur 
before the trade deficit is 
brought under control. There 
is already informed talk of the 
yen rising above 130 and die 
mark above 1.88. 

Meanwhile, die Federal Re- 
serve is anting as if nothing is 
happening. Tne federal funds 
rate is still at 6 Vi, well above 
the level needed for a drastic 
cut in US nominal interest 
rates. Interest rates have 
edged op in recent weeks, with 
the 30-year bond almost up to 
7.5 per cent yield. There is an 
extraordinary sense of indif- 
ference in official dudes. This 
is reflected in the contmmng 
indifference of the stock mar- 
ket to the economic trends. 

The US, having forced the 
initial appreciation of the yen, 
can now see the Japanese 
economy grind to a halt Now 
the Taiwanese and Sooth 
Koreans have been told by Mr 
Janies Baker, the Treasury 
Secretary, they too: most 
appreciate their currencies. 
West Germany and Japan 
should stimulate their econo- 
mies. If this happened, the Fed 
and the Administration tell ns, 
thing s would go much better. 

'/ .The US, however, bar done 
fitde or nothing io-deal-witfa 
the basic problem ofe-over- 
coosumptioa,- low "savings, 
abysmal economic growth and 
negligible productivity growth. 

The confasMHi and fjrastra- 
tion is reflected in the New 
York bond market. Yields rose 
last month and have not fallen 
significantly mnee Maidir de- 
spite evidence of a contin n iiig 
deterioration in the rate « 
economic growth. Traders are 
baffled and bewildered by die 
contrast between official state- 
ments and the reality they 
perceive? 

As happened in 1982, die 
Fed is hang in g on fo hi gh 
interest rates until the last 
moment When the crack oc- 
curs, nominal rates wfil be 
likely to fall as much a£ one- 
third. The earliest time when 
the Fed is expected to admit 
defeat is Labour Day, Septem- 
ber!. 


( gilt-edgedT ) 

Sleep soundly, traders 


In this column last week, 
George Hodgson put forward 
a provocative thesis about 
government funding involv- 
ing afl the usual monetary 
subjects guaranteed to send 
the experts rushing for the hot 
towels, including by implica- 
tion, that subject whose in- 
tricacies have made strong 
men weep — the bill moun- 
tain. In the words of Ernest 
Bevin, “If you open that 
Indore’s Box you never 
know what Trojan 'ones will 
jump out”. Fascinating and 
instructive though Hodgson's 
arguments was, I think it is 
wrong. 

The argument has -three 
parts: 

i) The contention that the 
authorities are now actively 
trying to control MO; 

ii) An accounting-identity.-, 
linking changes in MO with 
the CGBR, net sales of gov- 
ernment debt, and money 
market assistance by the Bank 
of England; 

iii) The contention that the 
difficulties of money market 
management will oblige die 
authorities to conform to this 
relationship by matching the 
level of fonding to the CGBR, 

' This then yidds the conclu- 
sion that since the CGBR is 
likely to be much higher than 
the PSBR (perhaps £10 billion 
as against £7 billion) funding 
will probably turn out to be 
much higher this year than the 
market expects. 

In my view, each link in this 
chain is weak. 1 take them in 
turn. 

Although MO is an official 
monetary target, the authori- 
ties have never given any sign 
of trying to control it or even 
given a hint of their prepared- 
ness to control it at any stage 
in the future. There is a very 
good reason : they cannot 
control MO. And they know 

if- , " ; . 

Why can't' the authorities 
directly control MO? Nearly 
90% of MO consists of notes 
and coin held by the public, 
which they regard as inter- 
changeable with deposits in 
banks. But the banks hold 
very little by way of notes and 
coin themselves, and the bare 
minimum of~ deposits at' foe 

Bank 'of England, which “are 
mterchangeablewifo notes.- So 
if the public should demand 
more notes and coin than is 
compatible with foe official 
monetary target, foe authori- 
ties have a choke, between 
supplying foe cash and forcing 
the banks to dishopour . their 
bbligatioriS' to' Convert tiejfos- 
its intocaste:..“'.i. r;;;'.:’. 1 ; 

In view of foe serious 
consequences of following the 
second course, foe authorities, 
in practice, always follow the 
first-But they can choose foe 
interest rate at -which to 
relieve- foe shortage of liquid- 
-ity- caused by/ an’ increased 
demand.. for notes- Although 
this gives them the option of 
raising interest rates in re- 
sponse to increased demand 
for MO, it is unlikely to have 
more than a minimal effect on 
foe public's demand for notes 
and coin. 

Coming back to the 
aCcountingTdentity: ' " 

Changes in MO = CGBR — 
net sales of government "debt 
+ money market assistance by 
foe Bank.

Suppose foe public's de- 
mand for notes and coin 
exceeds foe official target 
range for MO. With a given 


mere coincidence. It is foe 
result of deliberate policy. In 
July of last year foe. Treasury 
altered foe terms on which 
local authorities and- puhlic 
corporations could borrow 
from central government with 
the express intention of mak- 
ing such borrowing more 
attractive. The aim was to

authorities either cutting, back 
on funding, or, more likely, 
providing extra money market 
assistance. The identity holds, 
but in this instance -MO goes 
up. If they choose not to 
supply the cash, then foe 
identity holds and MO does 
no! move. But interest rates 
would soar and, depending 
upon foe tanks' level of excess 
of liquidity, the whole finan- 
cial system could be 
daggered! .. Either . way 


government borrowing This 
had been going, on for a*| 
number of years, but, with the. 
benefit of further encourage-, 
ment, it happened on a 
particularly large scale over 
foe last financial year. 

To foe extent that local 
authorities and public 
corporations use the funds 
thus acquired to repay 
borrowing outside foe banking 
en- system.' then this .would not 
foe help- foe authorities' objec- 


identity holds, but the eco- lives: For it would, count as 
nomir impact is rather negative ^funding of the PSBR, 
different 


And now to the current 
policy position. Suppose foe 
PSBR turns out to be £7 
billion, as forecast and the 
GCBR £10 billion. Can foe 
authorities comfortably 
square this with setting overall 
net . funding ;■ at ..£7 - biff ion, 
rather than tlO billiion? . . 

. They can. Suppose foe 
public's demand for notes and 
coin to be given. If the 
authorities fully fund foe 
PSBR and not foe CGBR, the 
consequence is a surplus in foe 
money markets of £3 billion, 
which foe authorities must 
take out iffoey wish foe leyel 
of interest -rates to -remain 
unchanged, the most suitable 
way to achieve this would be a 
sale of commercial bills from 
foe Bank's holdings. This 
causes no problems for the 
management of monetary pol- 
icy. And it can -take .place 
without affecting MOi 
-* If -the : authorities- 'wish- to 
influences interest rates one 
way sr. another: they can still 
do so by over- or under-egging 
foe bill sale, although this will 
have foe effect of temporarily 
and in a relatively minor way 
altering MO. - 

If. as against our simplifying 
assumption,, fotsoperatibh oc- 
curs against lheljackgroundof 
a riang demand Tor notes and 
coin, the authorities ■witi havC 
to make extra liquidity avail- 
able. Accordingly, foe size of 
foe bill sale needed to absorb 
surplus cash will be 
correspondingly reduced. 

So far from causing prob- 
lems for foe authorities, hav- 


and if foe authorities wished 
to maintain foe same level of: 
overall funding, they would 
have to make up for this with, 
increased gilt sales. 

It however, they instead 
used the funds to repay bank 
borrowing, then the level of 
outside funding of foe PSBR 
would be unaffected. Hie local 
authorities and public 
corporations would reduce the 
level of foe banks’ lending by 
paying off this debt, but the 
sale of commercial bills by foe 
Bank of England to foe bank- 
ing system to absorb foe 
concomitant money- market 
surplus '-would- restore, foe 
banks' -levels of lending. . fn 
practice, bank lending, to the 
public sector has fallen quite 
sharply over the last year, and 
so foe policy must be counted 
a success. 

What is foe conclusion? 
Net funding this year is likely 
to be set at £7 billion or so.-in 
line - witb-O the:. -Chancellor's 
PSBR;prqjectians..oc possibly 
slightly lessL' Wifo? National 
Sayings likely to bring in £2-3 
billion, and foe possibility of 
significant intervention on foe 
exchanges to support the 
pound providing external fi- 
nance, net gill sales this year 
may amount to £3-4 billion. . . 

. The message for gill traders 
is thisr foere may be plenty of 
things to worry about in 
relation to the gilt market, 
notably foe rate of earnings 
increases, foe state of foe 
pound, and the political situa- 
tion. But whatever else you 
worry about, don’t lose any 
sleep over the idea that fund-

without uutief-fundihg the

( ANALYSIS ) 


New step planned for the 

-moving dance 





■ The pattern of movement in 
the GryLrescznWfis nothing so , 
touch as a. .slow, elaborate 
dance -in '• which - everyone 
changes partners,, but no-one 
knows the steps beeausemany 
hsrvestifl to> be decided on. Yet 
there is not much time before 
big- bang, the signal for the 
music- to quicken, , turning 
stalely progress into a heller 
skelter. — '■"■ ' ■ v 

Still, the process: grinds on 
and tomorrow the Gty wfll 
move another step towards 
defining who' can: do what, 
after October 27. The- Counci] 
of the Stock Exchange mil 
have laid before it the 
Committee .on Quotations 1 
definitive -proposals on 
shareholders 1 lights in equity 
issues.' • . . r. ‘ 7 . 

.While . the proposals will, 
cover ‘flotations ami. pre- 
emption rights, most con- 
troversy surrounds the latter. 
Jt appears likely that, although 
the rules could change some- 
what, preemption rights will 
in practice largely be pre- 
$erved,and this will be seen as 
a victory for the lnvestor 
Protec tio n CommitteesflPCs) 
of the investinginstitiitrons. - 
.■ The institotions, however, 
are not only -members of. the 
IPCs and major shareholders 
in Britisfa industry. They are 
also the recipients of under- 
writing commission on rights 
issues, and therefore have a 
serious : conflict of interest 
when it . comes to- any- dis- 
cussion ofthe alternative mer- 
its of --rights issues : -versus 
bou^it dtals: : _ 
v* Pre-emption • rights allow 
shareholders icf mamtain the ir 
percentage interest hi the com- 
pany if they want -to (See 
right).. As members of the 
IPCs, the institutions are con- 
cerned to preserve-these rights 
so that shareholders’ interests 
■are not riiluted bv manage- 
I ments who may place - blocks 
*of shares in “friendly" hands. 

' . The bought' deal, on the 
[other hand, can offer positive 
‘advantages to the buaness. It 
is qnidc ahd gives access to 
wider financial resources, 
increasing the opportunity to 
raise ; large sums of. money 
while: also broadening the 
shareholder : base. ...'As 
-shareholders; therefore, the 
institutions should be con- 
cerned that the companies of 
which they are.: members 
should be able to compete 
internationally for capital and 
raise money, on the finest 
terms.- -.- ... . 

, It isdifficnlt^to say>riiethear 
- the rights issue or ahe taught 
deal is cheaper. The true cost 
of a rights issue is about 5 per 
cent of the money raised, of 
which 2 per cent is imderwrit- 
ing commission and the bal- 
ance professional- fees. 
Typically, the shares are of- 
fered at a significant discount 
— 10 or .15 per oent is hot 
uncommon. But because the 
shares are being offered to 
shareholders only, this is more 
akin to- a. bonus issue than a 
cost 



’When companies want to 
use uew unity , capital to .(and 
their activities, there are two 
■ principal ^ ways - of doing it — 
tte'r^fds issue; .the method 
pm-aOrng m Britain, and the 
so-called bought deal, more 
common in the United States. 

. issue preserves 

.which is the right 

of shareholders to participate 
in any secondary share offer- 
ins in proportion to their 
eustiug shareholdings. The 
bought deal, in contrast, air 
Joss the company to issue a 
Mock of egmty for cash to a. 
fl—wrial - intennedhuy for 
pladug to the market, asaaHy 
wftfr institntions who may or 


mfl^ not already be sharefaold- 
ers in the issumg company. . 

A third important way of 
raish^ .equity icapHaJ is the 
vendor pfodng,- whrareby the 
vendor of a company receives 
shares ht the aaporing com- 
pany. as considenitionfor the 
sale. Some or all of the shares 
can subsequently be placed or 
sold in the market The only 
restrictions imposed are (a) 
that where the ' shares are 
-offered t at a discount to the 
market price, the discount 
mast not exceed 10 per cent 
and (b) the. number of shares 
issued in any one year cannot 
exceed SO per cent of the:share 
capital already issued. 

Shareholder approval is 


needed, not to waive pre- 
emptive rights, hot only to 
increase the share capital if 

'need'he.. : • 

ft. Is a paradox tint vendor 
pladngs ~ should be so well 
accepted as an established 
mechanism for raising equity 
while there is so mnab resis- 
tance to the use of the booght 
deal. In both types of deal, the 
pre-emptive rights of the 
shareholders can be ignored, 
so in principle, there is no 
difference between filiewa. 

- What distinguishes them is 
fliat in the vendor placing, the 
proposed' acquisition has been 
identified, whereas in . the 
boaght deal, the company is 
free to use the cash as it wants. 


In contrast, the “cost" of a 
bought deal is the discount to 
the mmket price at which the 
financial intermediary takes 
the stock prior to placing it If 
bought deals were to become 
commonplace, there is no 
reason why they should cost 
any more than 3 per cent, as 
competition wifi keep the 
discounts down. Bur most of 
the profit on the deal will go to 
the . financial' intermediary 
who will be doing the placing. 
There will be no underwriting 
commission. 

Ibis highlights the major 
conflict of interest As under- 
writers, the institutions do not 
-want to lose the commission. 

The Stock Exchange seems 
likely to .recommend that the 
shareholders in general meet- 
ing ea» waivts thor . pre- 
emptive rights; mid. gjve the 
company permission to raise 
cash via plarings, but that 
permission must be renewed 
each year. 

This is more restrictive than 
the legal requirements under 
the Companies Acts. The law 
require? only -that permission 
be renewed: every -five years; 
The annual renewal wifi per- 
mit greater control, by 
shareholders. 

The Stock Exchange may 


alto decide that it will no 
longer require specific. issues 
to be approved -when they 
arise, raising the hope, or even 
the expectation, that the 
bought deal could become as 
commonplace in Britain as in 
the US. 

Such an expectation is un- 
likely to be fulfilled, and the 
obstacle will be the continuing 
implacable opposition of the 
institutional shareholders; In- 
deed. many: companies have 
approvals to -waive .-pre- 
emption rights already, de- 
spite the need to have specific 
issues approved. But the waiv- 
ers often limit new issues to S 
per cent of the capital in issue, 
presumably because the 
sharehold^rs, 7 .of- which the 
Insthnnojisi are. usually; Star 
majority, will not j- vote jn, 
favour of anything m'ord. 

Even tf the Stock Exchange 
relaxes its rules, it is still likely 
to be more restrictive than. the. 
law. This win strengthen the 
hand of the institutions who 
appear likely to continue to try 
to Mock bought deals ;in the 
name of investor protection. 
-Tbe evjdence for thisliesin ■ 
recent attempts IP increase 
shareholder rights in vendor 
plarings, such as in the case of 
the Dee Corporation. There, 


the institutions were success- 
ful in raising the. amount of 
the issue offered to sharehold- 
.'ersto 75 per cent from 25 per 
-cent. In the event; sharehold- 
ers only look up 25 per cent 
making the whole exercise of 
questionable value. 

Private investors will not be 
offered stock in plarings, but 
many of them object to rights 
-issues anyway. They tend to 
.be resentful of constant. tie- 
- mauds for cash;: They usually 
regard the needto take action 
on the. offer document as a 
nuisance, and can expect to 
see the price of their shares foil 
as a result of the cash call an 
effect the bought deal on the 
whole avoids. . 

Shareholders, including in- 
p^jshpuld^aye 
epee. - in' .the 
tents they have in- 
vested in to give! them the 
"flexibility' to use the whole 
range of financial services now 
springing tip. After all, vendor 
plarings are allowed, and it is 
but a short step from the 
vendor pforing to the bought 
lieaLAnd-ifroanagwnentsget 
4t "wrong, -they wifi have : to

next shareholders' meeting. :

Greycoat 
faces tough 
bid battle 

By Judith Huntley 
Commercial Property 
Correspondent 

Property Holding* Invest- 
ment Trust, the subject of a 
hostile £108 million bid from 
Greycoat Group, a rival devel- 
oper, will unveil its. defence 
today. The classic defence in 
such cases is to revalue the 
portfolio and boost the net 
asset value. - • • 

Phil’s last revaluation, for 
the year to March -31, 1986, 
showed a 14.5 per cent in- 
crease in the value of its 
properties, which are heavily 
weighted to London offices, 
its NAV was I58p a share, 7.5 
per cent up on the previous 
year. 

It revealed every aspect of 
its present and future develop- 
ment programme, bringing 
the total to £76 million. They 
were moves to convince, the 
market that Phil is not, as 
Greycoat accuses it of bring, 
merely a rent collector and not 
an active "developer. — 

Gty sentiment appears to 
be going Phil's way. 

Greycoat's share price fell 
after the bid announcement, 
making its cash offer worth 
more than the share offer. It 
will be difficult for Greycoat 
to improve -th e offer after 
successively scaling ii down 
during the six months of talks 
before Greycoat made its hos- 
tile hid.

COMMENT 


Laager economy would 
be easy to swallow 


The .financial implications of sanc- 
tions against. South -Africa may not 
affect the aignment, but offer an 
intriguing picture of myopia, self- 
interest and masochistic tendencies. 

While diplomats argue, market 
forces have already hurt South Africa. 
Lobbies of depositors, and worsening 
risk, led American batiks sot to renew 
.credit lines last summer, precipitating 
a currency crisis, a debt moratorium 
and two-tier exchange controls. Un- 
rest in South Africa, -domestic pres- 
sure in the West and a poor outlook 
for the rand, have sharply reversed 
investment flows-The financial rand 
now trades at less than half the 
commercial rand, which has itself 
fallen by 17 per cent since April. 

: These market sanctions hurt mainly 
because they were unofficial The 
Stiuth African ^government was anx- 
ious to keep the business-as-usual sign 

.out It had to tighten its belt to placate 
the bankers, and soothe remaining or 
potential investors. Property pur- 
chases were added to the financial 
rand system on Friday, to encourage 
foreigners to buy on the cheap in a de- 
pressed market 

. Swingeing mandatory official sanc- 
tions could evoke a quite different 


reponse and nu^tl^ve - Soutfi~Afhca 
better off as a siege economy. 

There are three available packages. 

The list left on the table from Nassau 
includes: a ban on new investment or 
reinvestment of profits earned in 
South Africa; the termination of 
double taxation agreements; a ban on 
agricultural imports and cutting air 
links. The non-shopping list of pro- 
sanctions countries in the European 
Economic Community featured coal, 
steel, wine; fruit and vegetables. 

Senator Richard Lugar's US Senate 
Bill wants to ban new investment, 
bank loans, coal and uranium, with a 
back up threat to imports of steel, 
textiles, agricultural products and 
diamonds. 

. Financial sanctions look the barmi- 
est since market forces have .already 
achieved the .object. They ' would 
chiefly punish foreigners and remove 
the incentive for Pretoria to stay 
within international financial rules. 

Shares of companies with South 
African interests fell last week for that 
reason, rather . than the threat to 
enterprises .on. the., ground, in South 
Africa. -A j ; coiifidfential ' Common- 
wealth Secretariat memorandum to 
heads of state at the mini summit 
notes that, on the balance of invest- 
ment, the British and others would 
lose for more from ending double 
taxation agreements than the South 
Africans.- - : ■ - • ; 

:;if bank loans were-banned^ there 
-would be nor : jpoint ini South Africa; " exports through nei; 
torvicing- existing loans. It might just ' - - 

as well declare a moratorium , for the 
duration. That would ease the strain 
on its balance of payments at the 
expense of British and German banks. 

If there were a veto: both on new 
investments and-; on: retention of 
profits made in Souths Africa, Presi- 
dent Botha should logically — in the 
post-imperial manner — expropriate 
subsidiaries of companies from coun- 
tries imposing the sanctions. This 


would ease the present drain of 
investment capital. 

Once adjustments have been made. 
South Africa need not be too short of 
money, since it mines about £6 billion 
a year of gold currency, and no-one 
has seriously suggested a full ban on 
this. The Senate scheme for official 
American gold sales to depress the 
price would not please other produc- 
ers such as Canada, Australia or 
Brazil not to mention the Soviet 
Union, which needs to sell to buy 
American grain. 

The dollar gold price has been rising 
for fear of disruption to the mines 
rather than sanctions. The rand's fall 
has also cut costs, boosting an 
industry that accounts for 1 1 per cent 
of gdp - provided output can be kept 
up. Gold has helped South Africa's 
developing economy overcome the 
inefficiencies caused by apartheid. It 
would certainly help a siege economy 
for which the country has long 
prepared. The same applies to plat- 
inum or diamonds. 

Comprehensive bans on other 
South African exports might similarly 
lead to the laager. No wonder Britain 
and West Germany objected. To- 
gether, they enjoyed a £2.2 billion 
trade surplus with South Africa in 
1984. To inflict maximum damage at 
minimum cost, banning one import 
after another would be more 
promising. 

Here, however, self-interest comes 
into play. It is no accident that EEC 
talks focused on items which Commu- 
nity countries produce and where 
there is an overall glut, although coal 
and steel are certainly important 
South African exports. 

The Commonwealth memorandum 
shows in product-by-product detail 
how rival Commonwealth suppliers 
could take South Africa's market 
Share: Australia and New Zealand for 
wool; Australia, Botswana, India and 
Zambia for coal; Canada and Austra- 
lia for uranium — having already 
. profited from the Krugerrand ban. 

Neighbouring states face a tougher 
equation. South Africa has already 
fired a warning shot by licensing 
imports from Zimbabwe. It recently 
almost strangled Lesotho. But there 
could be offsetting benefits. 

South Africa's US steel and sugar 
import quotas might be transferred to 
its neighbours. British airlines are 
already battling'to fly to Botswana. 
More practically, the Secretariat notes 
their problems could be met by “an 
appropriate mix of flexible im- 
plementation procedures and inter- 
national assistance". Inevitably, that 
means some of the trade diversion 
would be diversion of South African 

_ states. 

Market forces undermine sanctions 
as well as tottering apartheid. In 
distant Helsinki they are already on 
to that Finnish transport workers 
have extended their South African 
trade ban to Botswana, Lesotho and 
Swaziland, having noticed a sus- 
picious rise in business with these 
poor neighbours. Such is the twisted 
logic of sanctions.

A guide to 
career choice 


A challenge in 



taste 


Managing a kitchen calls 
for a number of skills 
including diplomacy. 
Simon Walsh considers 
the unusual demands 
facing a prospective chef 

“The Chef is management Chef de 
Cuisine means Chief of the Kitchen 
Wearing the tall white hat does not make - 
you any less a department head than the 
manag er wearing the suit” These are the 
words of Vincent Farrelly, Chef de 
Cuisine of a busy West London pub- 
restaurant where be provides an average 
of 1,000 meals a week. 

Mr Farrelly adds: “Managing your 
kitchen you need skills in accountancy, 
in knowing the ways of loss and profit, 
and you need to be a good judge of 
character when selecting a brigade to 
work under you. You must be adept nt 
man management and diplomacy dolls, 
and it is here that the ability to delegate 
stands at a very high premium.** 

“It’s a high pressure job in a hot, 
humid environment It demands not 
only creative flair, but also physical 
stamina and mental agility — and it's all 

A lucky chef with experience 
can choose where he works 

done to a deadline. If you try to take on 
the mantle of supremacy in a busy 
kitchen you will end up a nervous wreck. 
You must delegate.” 

In these times of high unemployment, 
a fully qualified chef with experience is 
in the happy position of not so much 
looking for jobs as choosing one —often 
commanding annual earnings in five 
figures. 

To reach this state, you need one thing 
more than the aptitudes so far described. 
This is a love of food and the business of 
preparing it so strong, that it is enough to 
overcame the pressures that a chef must 
bear as part of his job. 

The office of chefisnotso much apro-. 
fession as a vocation, and probably the 
only one that always calls on, but never 
allows for, that sensitive, creative part of. 
a personality. 

Other artists may be fondly indulged 
for their little ways, but the “Woody 
temperamental” chef must create his 
artistry to deadline every time. 

So, assuming you’re still absolutely 
sure about this, where do you start? 

If you are about to enter further 
education, the City and Guilds courses in . 
Cookery For The Catering Industry are 
recommended. 

There is a basic and an advanced 
course, listed as the 7061 and the 7062. 
Should you continue through both of 
them, you would cover a three-year span

Courses 


as day or block release courses or a two 
year period as full-time courses. 

--Philip Conhora of the Hold and 
Catering Industry Training Board sug- 
gests the day release course is a good 
choice, and has some impressive figures 
to support this. 

“We have found this to be very 
popular. It involves them learning on the 
job with an employer for four days of the 
week. Most trainees pass their 7061, and 
in 1984, 90 per cent of the trainees won 
full-time jobs with their employers. 

“At that stags' a 1 7^year-o!d could be 
earning over £i00-per week haying just 
come off a training scheme — in some, 
cases, over £150.” 

For older entrants there is the option 
of doing the 7061/2 on an evening class 
basis, or there are privately run catering 
schools. However, finding funds to study 
catering and support yourself will be 
more difficult 

Philip Corthorn belieyes that the best 
option fov oldetentrants is-to into the 
industry direct, and work your way up 
from the bottom. Vincent Farrelly 
started out in much the same way, as a 
14-year-old trainee in a big hold in 
Dublin in the late 1960s. His apprentice- 
ship, it should be stressed, was harsh by 
today’s standards — “If the man had to 
repeat himself, it wasn’t an excuse me, it 

was a cuff round the eari” ^ 

All the same. It lends an insight “fntb ' 
. the .thoroughness, with Which prospective 
chefs must master their drills if they are 
to succeed. 

*T came back the next morning and he 
put me on the potato machine, and there 
I stayed for the next six months, peeling 
and scrubbing potatoes. 

“From there I progressed to the veg 
corner, where- I-was~ tansbriD the 
different forms potatoes could be served _ 
in, how to cook vegetables, and present 
them imaginative, for another six 
months. 

“After that I was on the grill bar, 
followed by another stint on veg and 
then on to the sauce comer, earh ax six 
months. 


“My apprenticeship .lasted five 

and there were times I'd wished 

known what I was letting myself in for. 
Nonetheless, I got my apprenticeship 
and came out a qualified chef But what 
is a qualified chef when you never stop 
learning?” Mr Farrelly points out. 

“Chefs today have a lot more flexibil- 
ity and can move with tastes acquired by 
a more widely travelled public. Classical 
cuisine is still very much a mainstay, but 


Greater flexibility is called 
forgiven wider public tastes 


now there are also new ideas, the 
Modernes, the Nouvefles.” 

Also new are female chefs. 

Patricia Wright, n ow a d evelopment 
officer with the HCTTB, and who 
previously worked as a chef said in an 
; mherentty conservative worid,tradition- 
ally Jidd to be a male domaim“A lot of 
London kitchens are stiB dominated by 
' men for a practical reason. This is. that 
there is a lot of heavy equipment to be 
manouvred. It’s only in the newer 
kitchens that women can operate on 
equal terms because of the 
provided to carry various objects. 

“But I must admit that I was not going 
to be beaten by -any male contingent 
You have to be determined that there is 
not going to be a barrier, and with the 
new equipment coming in now there is 
no reason why there should be.” 

But it was not she said all plain 
saiiing:“Yes, there was a reaction from 
the start. They wanted to show how they 
knew their job, even though they had 
come in at foe same time as me and had 
the same experience. 

“You need determination as well as 
en thusia sm and creative flair. You need 
foe ability to stand up to people who say 
that foings must be done foe same way 
all foe time; that is your creativity.”

When containers 
are damaged 


YACHTING 


M/S Aswan Engineering 

Establishment Co v Lapdine 

Ltd sDd Others 

Before Lord Justice Fox, Lord 

Justice Uoyd and Lord Justice 

Nicfaolb 

(Judgment given July 16] 

The manufeciurers of plastic 
! containers were not in breach of 
j their duty in either contract or 
[ tort when the containers were 
damaged and their contents 
1 were lost. 

The Court of Appeal, in a 
reserved jud g ment, dismissed 
{appeals by M/S Aswan Eif- 

( gineering Establishment Co, the 

Jlaintim, mid Lupdine Ltd, the 
irst defendants, from a decision 
of Mr Justice Neill in favour of 
I the manufacturers, Thurgar 
BoDe Lid, who were the second 
defendants in ibe action. 

Mr Richard Aikens. QC for 


Aswan and Lupdine; Mr A. W. 
Stevenson and Mr Steven Coles 
for Thurgar BoUe. 

LORD JUSTICE LLOYD 
said that the facts had given rise 
to two difficult questions of law. 
The fim, on which there was 
said to be no authority, was the 
meaning of “merchantable 
quality” as now defined by 
section 14(6) of the Sale of 
Goods Act 1979. That question 
arose in third-party proceedings 
between Lapdine and Thmgar 
Bolle. 

The second question con- 
cerned the scope of the 
manufacturers duty in ton. 
That question arose between 
Thurgar BoDe and Aswan. As so 
often happened, the second 
question only arose because the 
plaintiffs primary remedy in 
contract was not available, or 
rather, was unlikely to prove, 
fruitful, for Lupdine. the inter- 
mediate sellers, were now in 
liquidation. 

Lupdine had been manufac- 
turers of a waterproofing com- 
pound known as LupguanL 
Aswan were a construction com- 
pany carrying on business in 
Kuwait. They bought about 
35,100kg of Lupguard for ship- 
ment to Kuwait 
The Lupguard! was packed in 
[ plastic pails manufactured and 
~ Bolle. Each 
J pall held about 25kg. The pads 
[were stacked five or six high in 
I containers and shipped. 

When the containers arrived 
they were left standing on the 
quayside in full sunshine: As a 
result the temperature inside the 
containers reached 70 degrees 
Centigrade (158 degrees Fahr- 
enheit), the plastic pails col- 
‘ ipsed and there was a total loss 
f the Lupguard. 

Aswan brought a ctaim 
against Lupdine. Lupdine 
brought in Thurgar Bolle as 
third parties. Aswan then 
amended their daim so as to 
join Thurgar Bolle as second 
defendants. 

The judge held that Aswan 
were entitled to succeed «e»wi« 
Lupdine in contract. Damages 
wtere agreed at £1MMU1. r. - 
Bui he^ dismissed Lupdine's 
daim against Thurgar BoDe. He 
bdd that the pads were of 
merchantable quality within the 
meaning of section 14(6) of the 
1979 Act. He held further that 
there was no express or implied 1 
term that they were to be fit for 
the journey to Kuwait. 

As for Aswan's daim against .. 
Thurgar Bolle, he held that 
Aswan had failed to show die 
requisite degree of proximity so 
as to give rise to the relevant 
duty of care. Accordingly, he 
dismissed Aswan's claim 
against Thurgar BoUe. 

Mr Aikens accepted that if the 
case was one of pure economic 
loss then Aswan could not 
recover the damages from 
Thurgar BoUe because of the 
decision in Muirhead v Indus- 
trial Tank Specialities Ltd 
(I198S] 3 WLR 993). 

He said that the case was not 
one of pure economic loss. 
Aswan had suffered physical 
! damage to their goods, namely 
the Lupguard which they had 
lost, by reason of the negligence 
of Thurgar BoDe in manufac- 
turing the pails. That, be said, 
brought the case within the 
ordinary principles established 
by Donoghue v Stephenson 
« 1 932] AC 562). 

On Lupdine's appeal, since 
the judge found that the pails 
were of merchantable quality, 
there was no breach of the 
condition to be implied by 
virtue of section 14(2) of the 
1979 Act. He also found, in- 
ferentially, that no particular 
purpose was made known to .. 
I Thurgar Bolle so as to give rise 
to liability under section 14(3) 
of the Act Mr Aikens attacked 
, both findings. 

The judge's conclusion would 
have been unassailable on the 
law as it stood before the Supply 
of Goods (Implied Terms) Act 
I' 1973. But Mr Aikens submitted 
that the position had been * 
changed, by the definition of 
“merchantable quality” in- 
troduced by the 1973 Act and 
now contained in section 14(6) 
of the 1979 AdC 
**Goods of any kind are of 
merchantable quality within the 
meaning of subsection (2) above 
if they are as fit for the purpose 
or purposes for which goods of 
that kind are commonly bought 
as it is reasonable to expect 
having regard to any description 
applied to them, the price (if 
relevant) and ah the other 
relevant circumstances." 

Mr Aikens submitted that 
goods were not merchantable 


unless they were as fit as it was 
reasonable to expect for all the 
purposes for which those goods 
were commonly bought U was 
no longer sufficient that they 
should be fit for one such 
purpose; 

His Lordship said that since 
the definition presupposed that 
grads of any one kind might be 
sold under more than one 
description, it followed, that the 
definition had of necessity to 
refer to more than one purpose. 
That was the true and sufficient 
explanation for the reference to 
purposes in the pluraL ' 

It would be wrong to infer 
from the use of the phrase 
“purpose or purposes" that 
Parliament intended any soch 
far-reaching change in the law as 
that for which Mr Aikens con- 
tended. 

On section 14(3). the judge 
concluded that the case was not 
one where any special 
characteristics bad been made 
known to Thurgar BoUe in 
circumstances which stowed 
that Lupdine relied on their skill 
and judgment. 

In his Lordship’s judgment 
tlk. circumstances showed pos- 
itively that Lupdine did not ndy 
on the sellers' skill or judgment 
in any relevant sense. Therefore 
there could be no question of an 
implied condition under section 
14(3). 

Lupdine's appeal in the third- 
party proceedings would be 
dismissed. 

On Aswan's appeal, it was 

S ed that the pails were not 
defective in a contractual 
sense, in other words un- 
merchantable or unfit for the 
particular p u roose made known 
to the manufacturers, bat also 
dangerous in a tortious sense: 

Mr Aiken argued that Aswan 
suffered physical loss or damage 
and since that should have been 
foreseen, Aswan could recover 
on the principle stated in 
Donoghue v Stevenson, namely, 
the manufacturer's duty of care 
not to put into circulation 
products which were liable to 
cause foreseeable damage to 

person or p roperty- 
There was a distinction be- 
tween a defective product which 
rendered the product itself less 
valuable and a defective product 
which created a danger to other 
property of the plaintiff 
Where the defect rendered ihe 
product less valuable, the 
plaintiff’s remedy, if any, lay in 
contract. Where it created a 
danger to other property of the I 
plaintiff the remedy lay in tort, I 
although it might also lie in 
contract. • . 

In the peat majority of cases, 
the question whether the danger 
created was danger to other 
properly of the plaintiff admit- 
ted of an obvious answer. The 
peculiarity of the present case 
was that the position was not so 
clear. 

If Aswan had bought empty 
pails from a third party and .then 
used the pads for exportmg^fhie 
Lupguard/ there would hay*' 
been damage to other property 
of Aswan. Bur the property in 
the pails and the property in the 
Lupguard passed to them 
simultaneously. It was artificial 
to think of the property in the 
pails passing at alL Aswan were 
buying Lupguard in pails. 

Questions such as those were 
'not easy. There was little 
authority on the point ip. En^ 
gland, compared to . America 
where the law as to product 
liability was more highly devel- 
oped. 

His Lordship's provisional 
view was that in all such cases 
there was damage to other 
property of the plaintiff; so that 
the -threshold of liability was 
crossed. Whether liability would 
be established in any particular 
case was another matter. 

So, although the purchase of 
the pads was only inddental to 
the purchase of the Lupguard, 
the case would not be decided in 
favour of Thurgar BoUe on that 
ground. 

On foreseeability. In one 
sense almost anything could be 
foreseen. But that was not the 
test. The question was not 
whether the consequence was of 

atype which was foreseeable but 
whether it was of a type which 
was reasonably foreseeable; The 
scope of the manufacturer's 
duty of care did not extend

triangular course from Ccwcs to

The match was played in a

beyond that point. 


Lupguard suffered dam- 
age because the pails were 
stacked six high and left for 
many days reaching tem- 
peratures of 70 degrees, centi- 
grade. -That was not damage 
which was reasonably foresee- 
able. • - - 

Thur^r BoUe were obliged, as 
manufacturers, to exercise 
reasonable care to ensure iimt 
the pails were robust enough to 
withstand the ordinary stresses 
and strains of an export trans- 
action. 

But tbe type of damage which 
occurred, and the conditions in 
which it occurred, were al- 
together outride the range ofl 
what was reasonably foreseeable 
and therefore outride the scope 
of their duty of care. To hold 
otherwise on the facts of the 
present case would be to impose 
on the manufacturers a liability 
not far short of. that of an 
insurer. 

Aswan's appeal, too. would be 
dismissed: 

Lord Justice Nicholls deliv- 
ered a concurring judgment and J 
Lord Justice Fox agreed: 

Solicitors: luce & Co; Ken- 
nedy's,

Child’s best interests 


TyT 

Where, on an 

one parent for custody, care : 
control of a child, it appeared 
that the solution which in a few 
'years' lime would be in the best 
interests of -the child might well 
be different -from the solution 
which was best at the timtof the 
hearing, it was wholly in ac- 
cordance with principle, and 
therefore not wrong, for the 
judge to decide the application 
by reference only to what was 
best for the child in the rel- 
atively shon term. 

Lord Justice May. sitting in 
the Court of Appeal with Lord 
Justice Lloyd and Mr Justice 
Holfings on July 31, so stated 
when dismissing an appeal by 
the mother of a minor from an 


order of Bristol County Court 
(Mr Assistant Recorder 
Fauvdie). which on June 9 had 
awarded custody, care and con- 
tra! of the child to the father.

to the Ripon roar 


Paul Cole can take one step 
nearer his half century of 
winners for the season at 
Ripon this afternoon by 
capturing the R W Armstrong 
Memorial Challenge Cup (4.0) 
with Pochard. At Goodwood 
on Friday Nisnas emphasized 
the continued well-being of 
the Whatcom be team with a 
convincing win in the 
Alycidon Stakes. Pochard can 
carry on the good work by 
defying top weight in the 
feature race on the Yorkshire 
coarse. 

A confirmed front runner. 
Pochard has already enjoyed 
himself twice this season at 
Kempton-.by gaining victories 
when enterprising riding tac- 
tics were employed. And 
around Windsor’s figure-of- 
eight recently the four-year- 
old did well to run Loch 
Seaibil to three-quarters of a 
length, attempting to concede 
181b to Henry Cecil's progres- 
sive lhree-year-oki... . 

Despite Ripon 's five-fur- 
long straight, it$ sharp final 
bend and the ridge-and-ftirrow 
undulations .in the home 
stretch make it particularly 
suitable for those who like to 
bowl along in front. Of 
Pochard’s four opponents. 
Auction Fever, the conqueror 


By Mandarin 

of five Farthings al York, and 
Past Glories would appear to 
pose the chief threats. Past 
Glories did weH to finish 
runner-up to High Tension at 
Ayr but may lack the' pace 'to. 
trouble the selection in the 
closing stages. ‘ 

The day's nap goes on 
Veritable,' who runs intbe 
Children's Day Maiden Slakes 
(2.30). the opening event on 
the North Riding track. Last 
time out the selection was 
only three lengths behind 
Celestial Storm at the New- 
market July meeting. 

The form of this race looks 
cast iron, as. hot only has' 
Celestial Storm finished - a 
dose third to Chinbisdie in 
last Friday's Ex tel. Handicap 
ai Goodwood, but Festival 
City, Boon Point and Reno 
Ralph, who finished down the 
course that afternoon, have all 
won since. The local punters 
are particularly noisy and I 
hope to hear the Ripon roar as 
Veritable proves too good for 
Capricorn .Beau and 
Moonstruck. 

At Wolverhampton's eve- 
ning fixture Jack Berry chal- 
lenges for the Bri-Eden 
Trophy, a race named in 
honour of the Cockeiham 
trainer’s evergreen sprinter.

with Tady Cara. Despite her 
narrow defeat by Russian 
Winter at Ayr last time out, 
the stable hope has a not 
unjustified reputation for 
,-inconsistency- 
. Davill, who spoDt Ms 
chances by stumbling when 
leaving the staHs in. The 
Mechanics Race at Sandown, ; 
was well backed beforehand 
and can now make amends- for 
that lapse from a lenient mark 
in the handicap. Other likely 
scorers on the Staffordshire 
course are Sir Mark Prescott's 
Carlisle winner, African - Sky 
■-(6.0), and Stajfmast, who runs 
in the Threadbare' 
Apprentices-’ stakes (7.30). ' 

Those who do not mind 
taking a short price for their 
money could do worse than 
support Sticky Greene, Barry 
Hills’s Windsor runner-up in 
the concluding Darlaston 
stakes (8.30). 

Visitors to Folkestone’s 
night lark may well see Fulke . 
Johnson Houghton land a 
double by 1 winning, the 8.0 . 
' with Shaflriya and in- the 
Hyihe Maiden Stakes (8.30) 
with Kalandariya. The pre- 
viously unraced Shaikiya 
should have the most to fear 
from Lester Piggott’s Brighton 
fourth, Tangalooma. in the 
two-year-old race. 

I The best bet on the Kent 
course could be Jabaraba, 
unpenalized for a .victory id a 
Chepstow apprentices’ race, 
who makes the long, journey 
from Devon to run in the 
Oaklands Handicap (7.30).

Lead od Time, ridden by Pat 
Eddery, made all the running for 
an impressive victory in the 
£25.336 Group II Prix Maurice 
de Gbeest (6 1/20 at Deauville 
yesterday. 

' Running for only the second 
-time this - year after bcing off the 
course since his second in the 
Green ham Stakes in April, the 
strongly fancied Lead on Time, 
who paid 2.4-1 for a win, was 
never in any danger and won by 
a comfortable half a length from 
the four-year-old Comrade in 
Arms. 

The French 1,000 Guineas 
winner, Baiser Vole. was. two 
aind a half lengths back in third, 
jim getting the better of a mass 
- photograph in which Orojdya 
was placed fifth. The other 
English challengers. Grey Desire 


and Sperry, disappointingly 
filled the last two places. 

It was a great training perfor- 
mance by Olivier Douieb, who 
now plans to ran Lead on Time 
in the Vernons Sprint Cup at 
Haydock on September 6 where 
he may clash with Green Desert

Willie Carson, made it a great 
day for the British raiders in

success in (he £28,249 Group II

John Dunlop’s colt had been 
an unlucky' second in the Grand 
Prix Prince Rose at Osiend on 
his previous start and connec- 
tions also felt that he did not 
have the best of luck in running 
when unplaced in the King 


Edward VH Stakes at Royal 
Ascot 

It was not plain sailing this 
time either as Canon had 
trouble in getting a clear ran. 
Once he found daylight just over 
one furlong from home, how- 
ever. he quickened away .for a 
decisive two and a quarter 
length success over the other..

den by Brent Thomson. 

Greville Starkey, on Zahdam, 
has a fine chance of scoring a 
rare British victory in the 
£27.12S Group III Grand Prix 
de Vichy (12f) today. It wiD be 
the Guy Harwood-trained colt's 
third consecutive outing in 
France; and after his good 
'second to Altayan in the Prix 
Maurice de NieuQ last m onth, 
he seems certain to start a warm ' 
favourite.

Gardner gets 
wet but no 
longer behind 
the ears 


Wayne Gardner's victory in 
yesterday’s 500cc Shell Oil 
British Grand Prix removes 
all doubts that the Australian 
has reached the highest level 
of ability. His third win this 
year was bis first in the wet. 

Gardner was thrust to the 
head of the Rothmans Honda 
team in only his second full 
grand prix season by the 
withdrawal of the world 
champion. Freddie Spencer. 
At Siiver5ione yestendayhe 
reached maturity. 

The race had to be restarted 
30 minutes after an accident 
on the first comer in which 
Paul Lewis, riding a Heron- 
Suzuki, received a suspected 
broken ankle. Gardner had 
been in the lead then as well. 

“This is one race 1 really 
wanted to win." he said 
through teeth chattering from 
the extreme cold. “I copied the 
Americans by grabbing a big 
lead early on. After that I 
could set the pace and ride 
safely." 

The Belgian Didier de 
Radigues's second was his best 
ever finish and he was pleased 
to have triumphed over the 
works V4 Yamahas on his 
three-cylinder Chevallier- 
Honda. 

Bui the third-placed Eddie 
Lawson (Marlboro-Yamaha) 
had drawn further into the 
championship lead and ex- 
pressed satisfaction: "I 
couldn't afford to take any 
risks and 1 needed the points. 
We needed to finish well and 
]*m pleased that we did." 

His team-mate, Rob 
McElnea, was fourth and 
looked as if he would beat 
Lawson. "When I caught him 
1 throttled back because he is 
leading the championship " he 
said. "What else could I do? In 


By Michael Scott 

fact. I t hink he speeded up as 
well." 

Others had trouble in the 
conditions. Christian Sarron 
(Yamaha), of France, was 
moving up into the top three 
when he crashed. 

Randy Mamoia, who had 
been second in the champion- 
ship, finished fifth but had to 
be lifted off die motor cycle 
after the race. He had crashed 
in practice and injured his 
shoulder. In spite of poin- 
killing injections the injury 
almost prevented him from 
finishing. 

In the earlier 250cc race 
Alan Carter, of Britain, led for 
much of the race but crashed 
on the final lap while defend- 
ing the lead he bad lost to 
Dominique Sarron, of France. 

On Saturday British riders 
did well. Ian McConnachie, of 
Derbyshire, became the first 
Briton to win a motor cycle 
grand prix since 1983 on his 
works Krauser and the York- 
shire sidecar crew, Steve Web- 
ster and Tony Hewitt moved 
into the championship lead 
with second place.

Warwick blunder 
wrecks hopes 


Jerez (Reuter) — A crash on 
the first comer among their 
main rivals gave Oscar Larrauri 
and Jesus Pareja their first world 
sponscar championship victory' 
yesterday m the sixth round of 
the scries. -r 

The Jaguar team — Derek 
Warwick and Jan Larnmers, 
Eddie Chcever and Martin 
Brundle and Jean-Louis Sch- 
lesscr and Gianfranco Branca- 
telli - were effectively 
eliminated on the first comer of 
the 86-lap race after Warwick 
collided with Brancatelli. an 
incident which also involved 
Chcever. 

The .Argentinian and Span- 
iard pairing then romped to win 
from Frank Jclinski and Walter 
Bran, their Porsche team-mates. 

"It was my faulL" Warwick 
said. "I fumed in to the first 
comer and just didn't see 
Brancatelli." Warwick finished 
third, the only one of the three 
drivers involved in the accident 
to finish. 

As tempraiurcs soared to 
inodcgF, Ian Harrower, of Brit- 
ain. was taken to hospital with 
heat exhaustion after finishing 
second in the group C2 class,

Turner takes advantage as 
Stadler strays off course 


Craig Stadler, the former 
United Slates Masters cham- 
pion, threw away a golden 
opportunity yesterday to win 
the Scandinavian Open 
championship in Ullna. Swe- 
den. The 33-year-old American 
was three up with three holes to 
play when be bit a bad patch, 
scoring bogeys at each of them 
to be forced into a sudden-death 
play-off with Greg Turner, of 
New -Zealand. 

Stadler s tale of woe started at 
the short 16th when he put his 
tee shot into a bunker. He 
followed that set-back by almost 
hooking into the lake at the 
17th, before dropping another 
shoL and tbeu took three putts 
at the last. 

With such-a sequence behind 
him. the odds swung heavily 
against the American — who had 
scored 66 in each oftfae previous 
three rounds. It was an opportu- 
nity that Turner could not resist, 
and be took it gratefully at the 
first extra hole, scoring a birdie 
with a putt from 30 feet to take 
his first- European title 
Turner, winner of the New 
Zealand PGA tide shortly after 


turning professional 20 months 
ago. and the younger bother of 
former Test cricket captain 
Glenn, said: “I was playing for 
second place when Craig hit a 
few loose shots. But 1 played and 
putted welL 

"My brother Glenn gave me a 
telling off for being a lazy so- 
and-so when I missed the Dutch 
Open to go to Lord’s to watch 
New. Zealand play England in 
the Test. But I needed that resL" 

In contrast there was only 
disappointment for Stadler, who 
is without a victory since Iasr 
year's European Masters. The 
American, who lost out to Sam 
Torrance in the 1983 Scandina- 
vian event after a last-hole 
bogey, missed the cut in this 
year’s US Masters after taking 
seven shots at the last. Two 
weeks ago he was forced to 
' withdraw after taking 82 in the 
opening round of the British 
Open at Tumberry, having in- 
jured a wrist when playing out of 
the rough. 

He said: "My confidence was 
very low but three 66s here 
really encouraged me. I was in 
complete control until 1 bun- 


kered my tee. shot at the 16th. I 
didn't hit another decent shoL I 
just lost confidence again. It 
wasn’t the pressure. I don't 
choke. My mind just seemed to 
wander."

the Cellnet Formula Three 
Superix Trophy and a share of 
the £25.000 prize fund (a Special

The Warmastyle Racing for

after the start when his arch 
rival. Maurizio Sandro Sala, the 
Brazilian, retired. 

Martin Donnelly, of Ireland, 
never managed to catch Wallace 
who led throughout the 30-lap 
rain-soaked race. Donnelly had 
to be content with a lonely 
second place. Surprise of the 
meeting was Johnny Herbert,

who powered ahead of the far 
more experienced Formula 
Three field to take third place.

The coxless pair's race was

into an early lead, followed by 

the Soviet Union and Great 
Britain. Subsequently, the lead 

changed twice, but in the last 

250 metres foe Yugoslavs drew 

away from the Soviet Union 

whilst the British boys mounted 

a furious attack. Great Britain

cheers and some booing, 
Botham came on. He majes- 
tically assisted Roebuck to set a 
field, and then bowled a wide, 
which produced hearty laughter 
all round. But he took a couple 
of wickets, the first to a magnifi- 
cent running catch by Harden at 
long-om the second giving us the 
opportunity to see again the 
famous heavenward-pointing 
Ibw appeal. 

Botham then opened the 
Somerset innings, but soon a 
blow intended for a straight six 
resulted a lofted return catch. 
Richards was run out and soon 
Somerset . were drooping. 
Somerset needed 56 in five 
overs and never looked like 
ting them until Palmer and 
Nos 7 and 8, scored 
18offthe I8tb over. 

In the final over, with nine 
runs needed, Marks stroked two 
consecutive twos, then scooped 
a six on the third ball to win the 
match.

Yorkshire 

By Peter Ball 

OLD TRAFFORD: No Result. 
Lancashire 2pts. Yorkshire 2. 

Manchester escaped the wont 
of the rain yesterday, but not 
successfully enough to produce 
a result. After Lancashire bad 
scored IS4 in their 40 overs, 
Yorkshire's decision to accept 
an offer of bad light after seven 
overs for tactical reasons was 
greeted with hostility, Moxon 
having to be pulled away from 
one critic on the pavilion steps 
by his partner, Neil Hanley, but 
it rebounded on them as rain set 
in soon after to wash out playfor 
the day. 

Initially indebted to Fowler, 
who was in determined mood if 
not at his most fluenL Lan- 
cashire made, only cautious 
progress against some accurate 
bowling, backed by excellent 
outfielding by Neil Hartley, and 
a spectacular catch at deep 
square-leg by his namesake to 
remove Lloyd before he could 
commence an assaulL 
The blemishes in Yorkshire’s 
fielding, however, were costly. 
Fowler had been dropped twice 
on his way to his 50 in 31 overs, 
and the ret uni of Peter Hartley 
and Jarvis - after notably tidy 
spells in the middle of the 
innings by Carrick, Shaw and 
Fletcher — at last enabled Lan- 
cashire to escape the leash as 73 
came from the last eight overs. 

The light had not been good 
throughout Lancashire's in- 
nings. When Yorkshire began, it 
had deteriorated; and after 
seven 'overs, and the loss of 
Metcalfe, they accepted the 
umpires* invitation with alac- 
rity, to the vocal displeasure of 
the members in front of the 
pavilion.

CRICKET 

Botham makes 
a modest 
comeback 

By Peter Marson 

. Ian Botham's dramatic -re- 
entry into the big time— a flurry 
of sixes and fours bad decorated 
his innings of 94 for an England 
XI on Friday last — was tem- 
pered by a relatively tame 
bowling performance for 
Somerset against Worcester- 
shire at Weston-super-Mare, 
yesterday, where Curtis alone 
.played down the wrong line to 
become Botham’s single success 
at a cost 'of 70 runs from 20 
overs. 

..This anti-dimactic twist had. 
been the result of a combined 
operation on the pan of the first 
five in Woroestmshiie’s baaing 
order, and in particular of the 
left-handed David Smith, 
Worcestershire's own giant, who 
displayed a nice sense of theatre 
by upstaging Somerset's star 
turn in a big innings of 165 not 
Out. 

Curtis made 64, and Neale 70, 
and if this was unquestionably 
Worcestershire's day, then 
Coombs, the slow-left arm 
bowler, with Richards’s help, 
had done Somerset a great 
favour by brin g in g down 
Graeme Hick for a modest 25. 

Middlesex, too. will have 
been well satisfied, not to say a 
touch relieved to have punched 
a - sizable hole in 
Northamptonshire's attack at 
Lord’s, where Mike Gatling 
made 158 as Middlesex banked 
four points on foe way lb 353 for 
five. 

At Cheltenham, where Hamp- 
shire chose to field first, Mar- 
shall. Connor, Tremlen and 
James complemented 
Nicholas's decision by com- 
bining to brine down 
Gloucestershire for 201. in 63.4 
overs.

Wright gets a fright 

9DV. *Pf sr ” 


DERBY: The New Zealanders, 
with all first innings wickets in 
hand, are 366 runs behind 
Derbyshire. 

John Wright had to face only 
three balls before rain cut short 
' his ' confrontation with his 
county, Derbyshire, at Derby 
yesterday. However, that was 
time enough for the New Zea- 
land vice-captain to find the fast 
bowler, Devon Malcolm, in 
anything but friendly mood as 
he opened the New Zealanders* 
firet mniqgs after Derbyshire 
had batted on to 366. 

Malcolm’s first two HalH 
caused -Wright 


tiated Malcolm's third ban be- 
fore heavy rain set in to rule out 
further play. 

.The ov ®™«8ht batsmen, Geoff 
Miller and Alan Warner, had 
both goner, on to make 30 as 
D erby advanced from 276 for 
six. Warner's came from 55 balls 
and included two sixes, off 
Derek Stiriing and Willie Wat- 
son. as he added 70 from IS 
overs with Miller. One six brake 
the window of the scorer’s boix,

England’s big step 
forward with Small 


By John Woodcock 
Cricket Correspondent 

The England selectors have 
taken one pace forward and 
three paces back, or at the best 
sideways, in choosing their 
side for the second Test match 
against New Zealand, spon- 
sored by Cornhill and starting 
at Trent Bridge on Thursday. 

They have picked 
Warwickshire’s Gladstone 
Small for the first time but 
retained Willey, whose days 
must surely be numbered, as 
well as Athey. who has played 
12 Test innings with a top 
score of 44. and French when 
they need a wicketkeeper who' 
can bat Gower has resisted 
any move there may have 
been to give him a rest- 

Bom in Barbados. Glad- 
stone Cleophas Small was IS 
when he came to England. He 
finished his education in Bir- 
mingham and there is a lesson 
in his recent success which 
needs to be heeded by every 
coach in the country. 

Since coming into first-class 
cricket in 1980 he has bowled 
great quantities of no-balls, 
including 1 1 in one over for 
Warwickshire against Middle- 
sex in 1982. He was still being 
plagued by them halfway 
through Warwickshire's 
match with Worcestershire a 
few weeks ago. As a remedy he 
tried bowling off a much 
shorter run. 20 yards rather 
than 35. since when he has not 
looked back. 

According to Humpage. the 
Warwickshire wicketkeeper, 
he has lost nothing in pace 
through doing so. He feels 
more balanced in delivery and 
has found himself hitting the 
seam more often than before. 
That is the moral of the story, 
he is a better bowler for not 
running so far. One or two of 
the Warwickshire side put his 
pace at something slightly 
above Foster's but not quite as 
fast as Dilley's when he is 
going welL And Dilley, like 
Small, runs nothing like as far 
as he used to.

Small: shorter run 

Before cutting back on his 
run Small had taken nine first- 
class wickets this season at 36 
runs apiece. Since doing so he 
hastaken52al 19, a full share 
of them at the.topofthe order. 
With 61 wickets he is the 
leading wicket-taker among 
bowlers qualified for England. 
Only Walsh and Marshall, of 
West Indies, and the Austra- 
lian, Alderman, have taken 
more. 

The idea of Small is not a 
new one. As far back as 1982 
he was pulled out of 
Warwickshire’s game against 
Lancashire at Southport to 
stand by to play in the second 
Test match against Pakistan at 
Edgbaston. In the event 
Pringle, whose place he would 
have taken, reported fit. 

Small spent last winter in 
Australia, where his seven for 
42 for South Australia against 
New South Wales at Adelaide- 
was one of the best analyses of 
the season. He finished with 
37 Sheffield Shield wickets at 
31 apiece, a number exceeded 
only by Jeff Thomson, who 
took 42 for Queensland, and 
Brown, of Tasmania, with 41. 
Small now replaces Foster, 
who bowls at times with such 
fire and promise and at others 
with a lack of control that can 
but infuriate him.

Radford has been dropped 
after failing to do himself 
justice in his two Test 
matches. Pringle and 
Emburey return after injury 
Ellison and Allott remain in 
contention. Pringle's fitness is 
a problem. Although be 
played in that Edgbaston Test 
in 1982, he missed the next 
after ricking his back while 
writing a letter. That, anyway, 
was what he said. ■ 

' It was his back that went 
again before the Test at Lord's 
the other day. If it keeps 
happening the selectors will 
have to turn elsewhere, per- 
haps to De Freitas, who also 
has some batting to go with his 
medium-paced bowling. 
There is also Botham now that 
he is back in business, though 
l imagine the selectors will 


want to see him showing some 
form before they pick him. 

Athey dearly has a friend at 
court. But for that, the stroke 
that got him out in the second 
innings at Lord’s, together 
with nis Test record, might 
have finished him o9l There is 
only one Test left in which to 
give Robert Bailey a chance, 
or Lancashire’s young left- 
hander, Neil Fairbrotber, who 
does seem to be something out 
of the ordinary. 

Lamb would probably have 
come back if Gower had been 
given a holiday but in the nine 
Test matches England . have 
played since beating Australia 
last summer — against West 
Indies, India and New Zea- 
land — Gower's average (33.5) 
is only slightly below Gooch's 
(36.2) and there was no ques- 
tion of dropping Gooch. It is 
also a costly matter being left 
out these days, ea ch appear- 
ance being, worth a minimum 
of £1,500. - 

Willey's retention, with his 
poor old knee and a bowling 
record in 26 Tests of seven 
wickets at 65 runs apiece, 
smacks of selectorial obfusca- 
tion. As a batting replacement 
at Lord’s he did his stuff 
admirably. But if he is being 
seen as a Test all-rounder be is 
not one; , and if he-, has been 
chosen as middle-order ballast 
Lamb is in better form and 
would have sharpened up the 
fielding Small, by the way, is 
the 27th different player to 
have been summoned this 
summer for the Tests and one- 
day internationals. 

They indude Botham, if 
you.remember he was in the 
original squad for the first of 
the one-day matches against 
India. Another of them. 
Larkins, was improbable 
enough to have come up as the 
result of a computer error. 
Throw in Taylor and Parks, 
who each kept wicket for a 
while at Lord's, and it gives 
"The silly season" a new 
meaning

COMMONWEALTH GAMES 


Loss of top clash underlines 
depth of disappointment 


By Pat Butcher, Athletics Correspondent 



Evan after a 
pair of gold med- 
als, Steve Cram 
did not hide his 
disappointment 
at the absence of 
Sebastian Coe. And, ul- 
timately neither could we at 
the absence of everyone else. 
Two of the six days’ athletics, 
Sunday and Thursday, had a 
full and exciting programme 
of events. But for the rest, 
empty lanes, thin heats and 
straight semi-finals or even 
finals told of the impact of the 
boycoiL 

The cool, wet and windy 
weather did not help. Coming 
so soon after the successful 
world junior championships 
in Athens, where Kenya and 
Nigeria, the most prominent 
of the boycotting nations here, 
did so well, the gale that swept 
this “Athens of the North” 
during the closing ceremony 

The Commonwealth Games 
Federation are investigating 
an incident of drug taking at 
Edinburgh. Dr Howel Jones, 
of the Federation's medical 
commission, said yesterday 
that a competitor — whose 
name, nationality and sport he 
would not reveal, bnt who was 
not a medal winner — bad been 
found positive in a random 
test. He said: “There are 
complications. We are making 
inquiries, bat it appears the 
competitor had been taking 
the drug therapeutically for a 
long time." 

was like the last sign of 
displeasure from the Olym- 
pian gods. In terms of the 
Theatre Festival, which fol- 
lows soon in Edinburgh, this 
was a Fringe Games, illu- 
mined by half a dozen inter- 
national stars. 

And Cram was the best of 
them. “Very disappointed," 
were his last words as he left 
on Saturday after winning the 
second leg of the 800/1, 500m 
double in which he had cx 
pecied to meet Coe. And since 
that challenge went missing, 
due to the throat infection, 
w hich caused Coe to pull out 
Cram has set himself another 
challenge, that of contesting 
the same 800/1 500 double at 
the European championships 
in Stuttgart in three weeks* 
time. 

The additional factor that 
has seduced Cram to his 
decision is the intriguing 
possibility that he would meet 
Coe over 800 and Steve Ovett 
over 1.500. For. although the 
European championships 
pose a much stronger test for 
all the other Britons — and will 
put many of the medals here 
into perspective - the chal- 
lenge for Cram internationally 
still comes from the older 


colleagues he has followed to 
middle distance greatness. 

But those duels in Germany 
depend on Coe’s return to 
fitness and the selectors’ 
choosing Overt. Coe should be 
recovered sufficiently,, and 
should meet Cram at one or 
the other distance, if not both. 
Both athletes are pre-selected. 
Cram for the 1,500, and Coe 
for the distance of his choice. 

Cram's selection for the 800 
also should now be a formal- 
ity, as would have Coe’s. 

The days of doubling up for 
both Coe and Ovett should be 
over. Ovett’s musing about 
returning to 1 ,500 for Stuttgart 
should be regarded as merely 
reminiscing out loud. For he 
can win tire European 5,000, 
while he would only be run- 
ning for second place behind 
Cram in the 1,500. Cram is in 
the form of his life — that 
adding to his disappointment 
at not meeting Coe. 

Despite the slowest 1,500 
winning time (comparably) 
since Bill Parnell, of Canada, 
won the mile in Auckland in 
1 950. Cram’s greatness is mea- 
sured by other Common- 
wealth statistical compar- 
isons. He joins Herb Elliott, of 
Australia, and Peter Snell, of 
New Zealand, as an 800/1500 
double winner, and Kip 
Keino, of Kenya, as the only 
other man to retain the longer 
title. 


Fortunately, Cram is also 
level headed — he will not risk 
losing precarious peak form 
by -being tempted into too 
many- races before Stuttgart, 
and that includes die match 
bn his home track tomorrow 
night, when he will only 
present awards. 

Cram is due to run either 
800 or 1,000 in Budapest next 
Monday, and said that that 
may be his only race before the 
European's. Ovett runs either 
1,500 or 5,000 in Koblenz on 
Wednesday, and Coe, if recov- 
ered, will race an 800 against 
McKean, Gladwin and David 
Sharpe at the IAC meeting at 
Crystal Palace on Friday.

Kirsty Wade’s similar dou- 
ble will, in contrast, be ex- 
posed in Stuttgart. She will 
only run the 800, and will do 
well to get near a medal Apart 
from the warring English jav- 
elin throwers, Tessa 
Sanderson and Fatima 
Whitbread, who resume battle 
at Gateshead tomorrow eve- 
ning . Debbie Flintoff of 
Australia was the only real 
world class woman displaying 
her laients in Edinburgh. And 
she will stay on the European 
circuit in order to attack the 
400 hurdles world record. 


Brave Curran Goode slip-up 
paid double brings joy 
gold dividend to Gilliland 



Bold riding 
by Paul Curran 
helped him to 
emulate the feat 
by Malcolm El- 
liott four years 
ago in Brisbane 
when he added the 105-mile 
road race title on Saturday to 
the gold medal he won for 
England in the 100-kilometre 
team time trial a week earlier. 

The turner from Thomaby, 
aged 25. burst away on his 
own 21 mites from the finish. 
But his solo attempt to snatch 
glory seemed destined to fail- 
ure when his 30-second lead 
disappeared with five miles to 
go and he was caught by Brian 
Fowler, of New Zealand, and 
Jeff Leslie, of Australia. How- 
ever Curran, of Manchester 
Wheelers, still managed to nip 
through in the sprint, although 
he later admitted he was 
suffering from cramp in his 
left fool. 

"It was only a twinge, but I 
dropped back to get a flyer for 
the sprint — and it worked 
when Fowler surprisingly left 
a gap." he said. “This is my 
best win: winning two gold 
medals will take some time to

medals adds up 
to sad memories 
Tor Andy Goode, 
of England, but 
joy for Scotland 
and Australia. 

White England marched to 
four golds, through Steve 
Baddeley in the men's singles, 
Helen Troke, again ladies 
champion. Gillian Gowers 
and Gillian Clark in the ladies 
doubles and the team event 
Goode injured his right calf 
muscle and lost two doubles 
finals, partnering Nigel Tier

vented England from becom-

completely dominate the com- 
petition. - but brought Billy 
Gilliland and Dan Travers, of 
Scotland, and Michael 
Scandolera and Audrey 
Tuckey. of Australia, their 
country's first gold medals. 

Despite Goode's surprising 
failure and Gilliland's de- 
lighted response, the high- 
lights were still Baddeley's 
domination of Sze Yu, . of . 
Australia, and Troke becom-

Organizers 
still 
in the dark 

By Paid Martin 

A Japanese bfflhmalre, pro- 
duced os if from a magician’s 
hat, departed Edinburgh at the 
weekend, leaving _ the or- 
ganizers . of ..the Common- 
wealth Games without ' any 
firm commitiBent that be will 
make ap their losses. * 

Mr Byokhi Sasakawa said 
he wanted to help the or- 
ganizers in their plight, bnt 
would only cover part of the 
shortfall, estimated by one of 
the Games' financial officers 
as around £1.8 million. 

The official disclosed that 
the deficit would come about 
despite a saving of £300,000 
that is expected from- the 
reduced air fare contributions 
and lower food bills resulting 
from the boycott. The calcula- 
tions, be said, were com- 
plicated by the vagueness of 
arrangements with the Mirror 
Group: the precise formula 
determining how modi they 
would pay for the scoreboard 
advertising was stiU to sorted 
oat. 

Mr Sasakawa, an 87-year- 
old industrialist, said he would 
have been able to be still more 
generous had he been invited 
sooner. "I would have brought 
a gift in my briefcase for the 
opening ceremony,” be said. 
Instead of which be had 
received a phone call from 
Robert Maxwell chairman of 
Minor Group, only when the 
Games were close to 
completion. 

Mr Sasakawa stressed that 
although Japan was not a 
Commonwealth member and 
his interest stemmed only from 
his belief in the value of sport 
to world peace, he would be 
prepared to contribute more 
extensively to the 1990 
Commonwealth Games in 
Auckland New Zealand. 

He invited the organizers to 
make an early approach to him 
— be would not wish, however, 
to U impune their honour” by 
giving an impression that be 
was intervening in their affairs 
or casting donbt on their 
ability to raise the necessary 
funds. 

“My contribution could be 
seen as a congratnlations 
present for holding the event 
and making it work,” he said. 

Though be would not wish 
to withdraw his support 
should another boycott be 
threatened, the shipping mag- 
nate admitted he he would not 
become involved if the event 
became enviable doe to a 
boycott of greater proportions 
than at Edinburgh. “I most 
draw the line somewhere,” he 
said. 

Cut-price bowls 

Commonwealth Games of- 
ficials were worried about the 
meagre attendances . at the. 
bonis tournament Free ad- 
mission was considered, bnt 
spectators were later a d m it t ed 
at half-price. 


Britain and Ireland, and their 
captain, made history on Sat- 
urday when they broke a 30- 
year drought of victories, and 
smashed the American 
domination of the Curtis Cap 
match. Arriving, at- Prairie 
Dimes, Kansas, last week, the 
odds - were -stacked heavily 
against them, even accumulat- 
ing a handful of points, let 
alone the comfortable 13-5 
triumph they stole from under 
the noses of the mighty 
Americans. 

From the moment 50-year- 
old: Belle Robertson holed a 
3fcfoot -putt: across the 18th 
green to Win her. foursomes 
match with Mary McKenna 
against Kim Gardner and 
Kathleen McCarthy, and take 
their team to the first-ever 3-0 
lead for a Great Britain and 
Ireland lead .after the first 
morning on Friday. : ‘ 

There «as*a buzz of expec- 
tancy among theplayers them- 
selves. and British xnpporteis 
who had made the trip es- 
pecially for the occasion. The 
team then broke into a con- 
fident stride, and went on to 
lake a further three-and-a-half 
points from the .afternoon's 
singles to put them in a perfect 
position for their sprint to 
baome-the-first British and 
Irish side to win any inter- 
national golf match against a 
US team on American soil. 

It seemed that the US team 
and their captain, Judy. Bell 
had not quite recovered' from 


totally overpowered on the 
first day when play got under 
way on Saturday. Great Brit- 
ain and Ireland's non-playing 
captain, Diane Bailey, rec- 
ognized a winning formula 
and put out identical pairings 
for the foursomes, knowing 
that another dean, sweep 
would give diem the nine-and- 
a-half points required to make 
the afternoon singles just a 
formality for record books. 

The eariy signs were that 
this might just be the case. 
Reinforcing -their strength, of 
combination^ Jill Thornhill 
arid- Lillian Behan accounted 
for Leslie Shannon and Kim 
Williams by five and three. In 
the top match, Patricia John- 
son and Karen Davies got into

a . comfortable position three 
up with three holes to play 
before, -i ' V Danielle 
Ammaccapane . . and ' Dottie 
Pepper Mochrie dedded not 
to go down without a struggle. 

Consecutive bogeys by Pa- 
tricia and Karen at the 16th 
and 17th allowed the Ameri- 
cans some reprieve, but need- 
ing only to halve the final 
hole, the two British girls 
rolled in a birdie at the 372- 
yard par-four 18th to match 
the three of the Americans for 
victory. 

•In yet another titanic strug- 
gle with their opponents of the 
previous day. Belle Robertson 


consolidate their early po- 
sition of three up against Kim 
Gardner and Kathleen Mc- 
Carthy, but another par-sav- 
ing pun at the 18th, this time 
from 1 5 feet by the remarkable 
Miss Robertson, brought in a 
valuable half point 
Twenty-year-old' - Patricia 
Johnson proved to be the star 
player of both sides. It was 
fitting, therefore, that hers 
should be the first point from 
the afternoon's singles to seal 
the fate of the Americans. Her 
five and four win over Kath- 
leen McCarthy, 1 regarded as 
the strongest player oE the US 
side, gave her the only 100 per 
cent record of four points in 
the event, and left her three 
under par for the 33 holes she 
played in the two singles 
matches.

Devon have a champion at last 


Jonathan Langmead suc- 
ceeded another 18 year-old 
Devon golfer, Roger Win- 
chester, as English amateur 
champion at Hillside, South- 
port, on Saturday. If that 
seems a matter of less than 
riveting significance it has to 
be set against the feet that 
until last year there had never 
been a Devon winner in the 54 
previous championships. 

Langmead beat Bernard 
White, the Surrey champion 
and five years his senior, by 


Keen as 
Muster 

Thomas Muster, of Austria, 
won the Dutch Open tennis 
championship at Hilversum 
over the weekend to claim his 
first grand prix title in a 
tournament he had not in- 
tended to enter. Ranked 79th 
in the world, the 18-year-otd 
seventh seed took just 80 
minutes to overpower Jakob 
Hlasek, of Switzerland, 6-1, 6- 
3.6-3. 

The Austrian originally 
planned to join the United 
States circuit in July and 
switched to the Dutch event 
only after Davis Cup duty 
.prevented him arriving in 
lime for a tournament in 
Boston. Among his victims, in 
a week where power play paid 
fine dividends, was Miloslav 
Mecir, of Czechoslovakia, the 
top seed. 

Birkby signs

rugby league chib player, has

two and one over 36 holes. If 
the match lacked a little 
quality in a fierce wind, both 
players being unseeded, there 
was enough cut and thrust to 
keep a surprisingly large gal- 
lery absorbed. 

Not until White’s driver 
betrayed him towards the end, 
causing him to lose the 12th, 
I4th and 15th and go three 
down, did the end come 
clearly in sight A splendid iwo 
at the short 16th revived a 
flicker of hope for him, but 


two stupendous hits with a 
helpful wind at the long 1 7th 
by the boyish Langmead, a 
drive of 328 yards and a three 
iron of 220 yards, emphati- 
cally shut the door with White 
yet again in the rongh off the 
tee. 

Langmead has won not only 
a tide but also, surely; Ins first 
England blazer. The team for 
next month's home inter- 
nationals is to be announced 
on Wednesday.

Noble 
lords 
of prize 
ring 

Nine days of amateur box- 
ing at the Commonwealth 
Games was a welcome change 
after nine months of the hard 
professional game. It was good 
to see honest endeavour In the 
ring rather than some 
matchmakers' manonevrings 
to get a boxer moved op in the 
world rankings. It was marvel- 
lous to wake np in the morn- 
ings in the beautiful . city of 
Edinburgh and write about 
young boxers in search of gold 
and silver medals rather than 
about promoters bedecked 
with gold or loaded with silver 
and their friends hi smalt suits 
and after-shave who pressure 
yon with hype-powered talk. 

The boxing was not always 
of the highest quality in the 
absence of the Africans but the 
best of it was as good as much 
of the professional variety I 
have seen this year. While a 
lot of the professional game in 
Britain is a rearrangement of 
old faces in new situations, 
much of it contrived, the 
Games uncovered fresh feces 
with new and vibrant 

techniques. 

How well John Lyon, the 
England flyweight, has ma- 
nned into a boxer of world 
class, picking his shots with 
perfect accuracy and timing. 
And how refreshing it was to 
see the Canadians, Howard 
Grant, the light-welterweight; 
Asif Dar. the brilliant Paki- 
stan-born lightweight who for 
me was the best boxer of the 
Games; Bill Downey, the 
clever featherweight; and 
Scott Olson, the diminutive 
light-featherweight, who made 
boring seem as pleasurable as 
potting a deckchair out m the 
stm. ’’ 

Men in control of 
their destinies 

So perfectly in control were 
they of their own capabilities 
that even under extreme pres- 
sure they never forgot them- 
selves or their boring. Nor will 
I forget their constant dtang: 
ing of stance from southpaw to 
orthodox and back, over and 
over again, that confused their 
opponents, or the little Olson 
tearing into Mark Epton, of 
England, and at the point of 
exhaustion looking np at the 
dock.. ... 

The boxing was always 
dean, crisp and uncluttered, 
thanks to die referees observ- 
ing the rules strictly. How ont 
of place were the professional 
tricks used by some British 
boxers who clearly had im- 
bibed the habits from watch- 
ing^rofessional boxing on 

one outstanding lesson 
from the success of the 
Canadians who won six gold 
medals was to follow the 
golden rale to box within your 
potential It prevents a boxer 
from taking on too much and 
enabling him to remain cool - 
under pressure and always 
beingin a position to bunch an 
attack and above all never 
losing right' of his boxing 
capabilities. 

The two Canadian gold 
medal winners from the last 
Commonwealth Games in 
Brisbane who turned pro-' . 
fess tonal Shawn O'Sullivan 
and Willie DeWit, have so far . 
fsfled.to make their mark hot 
these new Canadians who are - 
the target oTprofessional man- 
agers may do better, for not 
only are they more skilful than 
O'SnUJvaD and DeWit, bnt 
they are more aware of their - . 
own potential. 

If they stay, as they say they 

will with their coach, Kay lor 
Gordon, until the 1988 Olym- 
pics they will be better able to - 
judge whether they can make 

their wa y in the professional . - 

world or not. 


Sad defections 
to paid ranks 

It is a pity that the British- - 
Olympic team are too often hit 
by .boxers moving off to make 
their -fortunes in die pro- 
fessional world. The two most 
likely to leave England this - 
time are Rod Douglas gad 
Darren Dyer. 

And yet how unimpressive . 
and plain against the Ganadi- 
ans these two English gold 
medal winners looked as they 
tried to knock their opponents 
4jyer with a single blow.. Dyer’-s 
final ended with the fast solid 
blow from -him hi ftfpg Jim 
McAllister's eyebrow, though 
Douglas was given q rougher •
