The Government is lo press 
ahead witfr a package of 
measures armed as reassuring 
nationalist faith in the Anglo- 
Irish agreement, m spile of 
rising J loYaHst” violence and 
protests aimed at destroying 
the accord or preventing its 
implementation. 

.While the Government in- 
dicates its unyielding oppo- 
sition to loyalist threats, a big 
security problem faces the 
Irish Republic's police and 
army if the deputy leader of 
the Democratic Unionist 
party travels south for his 
court appearance on 
Thursday. 

■ "Mr Peter Robinson, MP for 
East Belfast, faces four 
charges, including assaulting 
members of the Garda and 
malicious damagie. after- the 
loyalist ‘invasion" of a village 
in Co Monaghan- He has been 
advised to jump baO or travel 
south accompanied by thou- 
sands of supporters for protec- 
tion. If he is convicted Mr 
Robinson could face a maxi- 
mum prison sentence of two 
years. 

He will consult his legal 
advisers and the Rev fan 
Paisley! who is expected in 
Belfast today after cutting 
short a . trip to the United 
Stales, but it is thought likely 
that the publicity value of 
c&irt- proceeding . will per- ' 
suade him to appear in court 
at Dundalk, Co Louth. 

.Mr Nicholas Scott, Par- 
liamentary Under-Secretary 
of State at the Northern 
Ireland Office, said' yesterday 
that he believ&f Mr Robinson 
should answer, his bail, and 


By Richard Ford 

that the Irish police would 
provide adequate' protection. 
He confirmed that the RUC 
had removed the police guard 
from the MFs home at 
Dundonald, on the eastern 
outskirts of Belfast, but said it 
was an operational matter for 
the police and he bad not been 
consulted. 

He dismissed as “fantasy" a 
claim by. Mr Robinson that 
the British Government had 
plotted to kill him by offermg 
a five-figure sum lo a merce- 
nary. 

Among the measures being 
considered by the Govern- 
ment are repeal of the Flags 
and Emblems Act, which 
effectively makes it unlawful 
to fly the tricolor, moves to' 
give greater recognition to the 
use of the Irish language and 
reforms to allow street signs in 
Gaelic where a majority of 
local inhabitants so wish, 
strengthening of legislation on 
incitement to hatred and 
improvements to the police 
complaints procedure. 

There is no sign yet, how- 



Mr Nicholas Scott, who 
dismissed plot to left! claim 


ever, that the Government is 
willing to accept Irish de- 
mands for a replacement of i 
one judge, non-jury courts 
with a system in which three 
judges sit hearing cases. 

Meanwhile; the dilemma 
facing the RUC in the prov- 
ince was highlighted yesterday 
at the stan of a republican 
parade in West Belfast 
commemorating the fifteenth 
anniversary ofiniemmenL 

In spite of four verbal 
warnings that the parade was 
illegal about 2,000 marchers, 
including a delegation ftom 
the Troops Out movement 
and the Provisional IRA's 
American fund-raisers 
Noraid, marched in the Falls 
Road. 

A huge police and Army 
presence scanned the crowd 
with binoculars and a police 
video team filmed the rally at 
which the main speaker, Mr 
Gerry Adams, Provisional 
Sinn Fein MP for West Bel- 
fast. gave a warning that the 
British and Irish governments 
were conspiring to create an 
atmosphere where internment 
could be reintroduced. 

Rioting in Belfast and 
Londonderry ended shortly 
before dawn yesterday after 
plastic bullets were fired to 
disperse crowds who attacked 
each other in north Belfast 

After the parade yesterday 
in Belfast had passed off 
without serious incident, po- 
lice detained Mr Alex Massey, 
a Provisional Sinn Fein coun- 
cillor, for questioning about 
serious terrorist crime.

Ministers face sex 
, education defeat 

- - By Sheila Gtmn, Political Staff 

The Government's attempt religious views. Whatever the 
to legislate on how school- 
children should be taught 
about sex is in danger of 
collapsing. 

Opposition MPs and many 
Conservative backbenchers 
are strongly against bringing 
the law into such a sensitive 
area and fear it could lead to a 
spate of court actions by 
parents. 

They believe the sex educa- 
tion clause in the Education 
Bill is unnecessary after the 
publication of a draft circular 
by the Department of Educa- 
tion and. Science last week. 

That sets out how the Govern- 
ment expects schools to tackle 
the subject ‘"within a moral 
framework”. 

The Bill will also give 
parents more representation 
on governing bodies and more 
rights to determine what is in 
the sex education curriculum. 

The latest attempt to change 
the Bill comes from a mixed 
group of 64 Labour front- 
bench and Conservative 
backbench MPs who have 
tabled an amendment giving 
parents the right to excuse 
their children from sex educa- 
tion lessons. 

The Labour members want 
to prevent unnecessary court 
cases between schools and 
parents, while, the Conser- 
vatives are reflecting the con- 
cern of parents with strong 


reason, the amendment is 
being strongly resisted by 
Ministers. 

The sex education clause, 
like many other changes to the 
Education Bill, was forced on 
the Government by “the 
moral right" in the House of 
Lords. Lord Buckmasler, an 
independent peer, and Lord 
Denning, the former Master of 
the Rolls, were among those 
who called for sex education 
to emphasize the importance 
of the family and not to 
concentrate only on the. 
mechanics of sexual activity. 

Ministers bad wanted to 
avoid legislating on what 
should be in the sex education 
curriculum. But the pressure 
from the Lords coincided with 
the Government's campaign 
for moral revival. 

Mr Norman Tebbit, the 
Conservative Party chainnan, 
made speeches attacking the 
permissive attitudes of the 
1 960s and MPs received many 
letters from parents outraged 
by their children's descrip- 
tions of sex education classes 
in some schools. 

A clause was added to the 
Bill calling for local authori- 
ties, governing bodies and 
heads to “take such steps as 
are reasonably practicable to 
ensure that ... sex education 
is given ... in such a manner

Minister 
looks into 
Gurkha 
dismissals 

By Rodney Cowton 
Defence Correspondent 

Mr John Stanley, Minister 
of State for the Armed Forces, 
has asked for a report on the 
circumstances surrounding 
the dismissal of more than 100 
Gurkhas from the British 
Army.. 

Both Mr Stanley and Mr 
Roger Freeman, Parlia- 
mentary Under Secretary of 
State for the Armed Forces, 
are due to make visits to Hong 
Kong, where the regiment 
involved, the 7th Duke of 
Edinburgh's Own Gurkha : Ri 
fies, is based, it is believe^ 
that Mr Freeman is due to go 
in the next week or two and 
Mr Stanley a little later. 

Both visits are said to have 
been planned some time ago, 
and not initially to have been 
relaxed to the present diffi- 
culties. It would be surprising, 
however, if they were not now 
dominated by the dismissal of 
the soldiers. 

The dismissals follpwed a 
refusal by the Gurkhas to co- 
operate with an army inquiry 
into a brawl which occurred in 
Hawaii in May, during which 
two army officers were 
injured. 

The Ministry of Defence 
said yesterday that 1 1 1 Gur- 
khas had been dismissed, the 
last of whom flew home to 
Nepal from Hong Kong on 
Saturday. A further 12 would 
have been dismissed, but were 
reinstated after making 
successful representations to 
the Gurkha Field Force in 
Hong Kong. Those who have 
been dismissed have a right of 
appeal to the Army Board 
Mr Jack Ashley, the Labour 
MP for Stoke-on-Trent, has 
called for a public inquiry into 
the-dismissals. He said he was 
disturbed by reports that one 
of the Gurkhas' officers had 
behaved in a racist manner, 
that their pay was half that of 
other soldiers. ' 

**I found it remarkable that 
so many hitherto dutiful and 
loyal servants should be so 
summarily dismissed" he 
said in a letter to Mr George 
Younger, the Defence 
Secretary. 

In Hong Kong, an un- 
married Gurkha private earns 
£1.700 a year, a married man 
£4.220. When stationed in 
Britain the pay for a single 
man increases to £4.000. com- 
pared with a British private's 
basic of £5.274.

TUC blueprint for 
consumer control 
of state industry 


The return of British 
Telecom to public ownership, 
and the establishment of High 
Street consumer centres with 
watchdog powers over major 
service industries, are features 
of a TUC blueprint for reshap- 
ing public industries. 

Other reforms, designed “to 
reverse disillusionment with 
public ownership”, call for 
public industries to become 
Industrial relations pace- 
setters, and the establishment 
of a British investment bank 
to channel long-term finance 
into higb-tephnology and 
“start-up" companies. 

The reforms, which also 
seek more backing for local 
enterprise boards and an 
extension of the parliamen- 
tary select committee system 
to scrutinize large public com- 
panies more systematically, 
will be put to next month’s 
TUC Congress at Brighton. 

The report, called Industries 
for People, is the result of a 
two-year review of public- 
ownership. It says: “National- 
ized industries in their present 
form have failed to give 
people any sense of owning or 
having a slake in public 
enterprise" 

.According to the TUC the 
solution is a “fresh and more 
imaginative approach to pub- 
lic enterprise”, not the 
Government's "blinkered 


obsession” with privatization. 

TUC approval will signal 
the start of a campaign to win 
support for public enterprise 
that meets social needs and 
protects the public interest. 

The TUC believes that pub- 
lic dissatisfaction about the 
performance of parts of the 

S ublic sector has allowed the 
iovemment’s privatization 
programme to proceed so far. 

“There was overwhelming 
popular support for the great 
nationalization initiatives of 
the 1945-51 period, yet less 
than four decades later a 
programme aimed at selling 
those same assets back to 
private owners is greeted with 
apathy or support by a size- 
able part of the electorate." 

It is thought this has more 
to do with the image and 
record of public, enterprise 
than with any positive attrac- 
tions of privatization. 

The most common concern 
expressed by unions is about 
the remoteness and lack of 
responsiveness of public in- 
dustries. in particular those 
utilities which provide ser- 
vices direct to huge numbers 
of people. The proposals are 
aimed at setting new stan- 
dards of accountability. 

The TUCs second broad 
area of concern is that govern- 
ments have too often abused

Chinese show 
off to Mrs 
Gorbachov 

Moscow (AP) — Mrs Raisa 
Gorbachov, the wife of the 
Soviet leader, paid a rare 
social call on the Chinese 
Embassy last week to inspect 
the latest in women's fashion 
on their side of the Great Wall, 
diplomatic sources said 

Mrs Gorbachov's atten- 
dance.- with other Kremlin 
wives, at a Chinese fashion 
show was the latest hint of the 
slow warming in cultural and 
economic ties between the 
rival communist powers, 
whose political . relations re- 
main frosty. 

“This was quite an event” 
said a diplomatic source. 
“TTtis son of thing hasn’t 
happened in 20 years." 

Among Mrs Gorbachov's 
companions was. the wife of 
Mr Eduard Shevardnadze, the 
Soviet Foreign Minister. 


Claws drawn in Polish catwalk scandal 


From Roger Boye$ 
Warsaw 

Beauty, they say. is only 
skin-deep. On the surface, 
everything seems to be in 
order another nice girt with 
all the right equipment has 
just been crowned Miss Po- 
land. the Soviet bloc's main 
contender for the Miss World 
title in London. 

Handled with the reveren- 
tial care normally reserved for 
Mr MikhaiJ Gorbachov, the 
contest's British organizer. 
Mrs Julia Morley, and a 
glowing blonde Miss World 
were whisked to the dilapi- 
dated seaside resort of Sopot' 
to witness the coronation. 

Bui behind the scenes there 
is more than a hint of scandal 
with allegations of stolen or 
“lost? prizes, of favouritism 
and vote-rigging, of walkouts 
and secret trysts. The daws. 







Magdalena Jaworska as 
Miss Poland 1984. 
immaculately painted, are 
drawn. 

The problems began when 
Miss Poland 1984. Miss Mag- 
dalena Jaworska. wrote an 
attack on the Polish organizers 
of the beauty comesL She 
claimed that prizes promised 
by the organizers — and 
provided by the international 
sponsors — were not reaching 

k 


the winners but disappeared 
into somebody's pockets. 

Although the Miss Poland 
contest was a profitable event, 
the beauty queens caught a 
glimpse of only a fraction of 
the money-and indeed had to 
subsidize themselves. 

The organizers of com- 
petitions like Miss Universe 
and Miss Europe give spend- 
ing money' to the contestants 
buu according to Miss Ja- 
worska and others, this also 
evaporates, leaving the Polish 
contender penniless.- 

The in-fighting becomes 
particularly intense at a' spe- 
cial training camp held for ihc 
finalists before the Miss Po- 
land show is staged. The idea 
is to leach the women how to 
walk elegantly and answer 
questions. The real purpose, 
some of the beauty queens 
suspect is to allow the -or- 
ganizers to work out the 
finalists in advance. 

$ 


Last year two girts were 
thrown out of the finals after 
the chief organizer accused 
them of bad conduct. 

They replied in kind and 
spoke out about wild parties 
with the sponsors, special 
excursions for the “chosen" 
girts and vote rigging. 

One of the organizers took 
Miss Jaworska to court, alleg- 
ing defamation. The Warsaw 
prosecutor showed interest 
and the affair looked like 
becoming a national calamity. 

But in the interests of an 
orderly Miss Poland 1986 
contest the libel case has been 
quietly dropped- Emotions are 
slill running high, however. 

The new queen, so far 
untouched by scandal, is an 
art student aged 19. She won a 
Japanese car but is unable to 
drive. Perhaps the organizers 
will be able to solve that 
problem. 


Beacon 
climb 
for the 
Queen 

By Robin Young 

The Queen will be climbing 
up 152 lighthouse steps on a 
rocky outpost of Scotland’s 
west coast today, regardless of 
public concern for her health 
since it was disclosed that she 
had a secret check-up at the 
National Heart Hospital Iasi 
week. 

The tests she underwent 
were "routine and 
insignificant" according to the 
assistant press secretary at 
Buckingham Palace. It is ev- 
ident though, that they were 
more sophisticated than might 
have been performed at 
Buckingham Palace with a 
portable electro-cardiogram 
device, and tight security sur- 
rounded the Queen's hospital 
visit. 

Corridors were closed and 
lifts shut as she arrived for her 
appointment. 

Whatever tests were per- 
formed did not interrupt the 
Queen's schedule in any way. 
She spent 50 minutes with 
consultants, and then com- 
pleted her engagements for the 
day. 

On Wednesday she trav- 
elled lo Southampton to txxird 
the Royal Yacht Britannia for 
her annual cruise around the 
Western Isles cn route to her 
summer holiday at Balmoral. 

On Saturday, the day before 
the news emerged of her heart 
check, the Queen was visiting 
Clydebank to mark its 
centenary. 

In a hectic morning she 
named an oil rig, loured a 
shipyard, an engineering 
works and a hospice, went 
walkabout through Clydebank 
shopping centre, unveiled a 
plaque and a commemorative 
stone, toured the Clydebank 
business park, visited the local 
radio station, lunched at the 
town hall, and went to watch 
youth activities at Dalmuir 
Park in the afternoon. 

Today the Queen will be 
visiting Ardnamurchan light- 
house, on the most westerly 
promontory in Britain — the 
sort of bracing and energetic 
engagement she enjoys best 
“There have been no dele- 
tions, no additions, no 
changes to the Queen’s pro- 
gramme whatsoever. The 
Queen is in excellent health, 
and enjoying her holiday,” 
Buckingham Palace said 
yesterday. 

Britannia arrives at Aber- 
deen on Saturday, and the 
Queen will be spendinga quiet 
week at Balmoral. 

There is no history of heart 
disease in the Queen's an- 
cestry, and she does not use 
salt, excess of which has been 
associated with liability to 
heart attacks and strokes.' 

Nor does she smoke, which 
is reckoned to be an important 
contributory factor to heart 
illness. The Queen is believed 
to have been to hospital only 
once before as anything but a 
visitor — for the extraction of a 
wisdom tooth. 


5 more 
Mont 
Blanc 
deaths 

From Susan MacDonald 
Paris 

Five more dimbers on the 
Mom Blanc massif fell to their 
deaths this weekend, bringing 
the total loss of life on the 
French side of the mountain 
since the beginning of August 
to 1 1. 

A week ago a British 
climber, Mr David Earle, died 
and his wife and climbing 
companion were injured while 
climbing the Aiguille du Midi. 

The loss of life on Mont 
Blanc during Julv had been 
the lowest for ten years, with 
10 people dying compared 
with 15 during the same 
month last year. It is thought 
that the particularly high Au- 
gust figures are due to a 
heatwave in the area, which 
lias caused rock Tails because 
of a lack of ice on the 
mountain at night 

The total numlier of deaths 
on the French side of Mom 
Blunc increases hv around 10 
per cent a year, which is 
roughly the same as the yearly 
increase in climbers in the 
area. The gendarmerie moun- 
tain rescue sen. ice in Chamo- 
nix says that 5Q people died 
last year. 31 of them during 
July and August. 

• Link fails — An attempt to 
form a 53-mile human chain 
from Chamonix to the Swiss 
city of Geneva to celebrate the 
300ih anniversan of the first 
human ascent of Mont Blanc 
failed yesterday when gaping 
holes were detected in the 
chain (AFP reports). 

The organizers were forced 
to admit that too few people 
took pan. 


Checks on 
share 
deals soar 

Investigations into sus- 
pected cases of insider dealing 
on the stock market, a crim- 
inal offence since 1981, nearly 
doubled last year says a Stock 
Exchange report published to- 
day. 

However, few cases ended 
in prosecution because of the 
difficulties in proving that 
anything illegal had taken 
place. 

The Stock Exchange investi- 
gated 81 1 cases of unusual 
price movements, possibly 
caused by investors using 
inside information, compared 
with 465 cases the year before. 

Full inquiries were 
launched into 35 cases, com- 
pared with 48 the year before. 
As a result, 10 cases were 
referred lo the Department of 
Trade and Industry. 

The report says that an 
increase in speculative activ- 
ity was mainly responsible for 
the rise in the number of 
initial investigations.

THE TIMES MONDAY AUGUST II 1986 


Pressure on 
Labour grows 
after spending 
plans audit 

By Sheila Gann, Political Staff 


The Labour Party came 
under increased pressure yes- 
terday to submit its spending 
programme to independent 
audit after the publication of 
two studies estimating that a 
Labour government would 
have to borrow between £23 
and £26 billion. 

Party strategists have so far 
refused to commission an 
independent audit in the hope 
that the claims of Treasury 
ministers will win rather than 
lose them votes. This is in 
spite ofa call from Mr Merlyn 
Rees, the former Labour 
Home Secretary, for indepen- 
dent analysis. 

Mr Roy Hattersley, the 
shadow Chancellor, has de- 
scribed as “fantasy figures" 
calculations made by Mr John 
MacGregor, Chief Secretary to 
the Treasury, which he based 
on Labour's plans. 

Mr MacGregor added to- 
gether the cost of the promises 
made by Opposition spokes- 
men and arrived at a total of 
£35 billion. Mr Nigel Lawson, 
Chancellor of the Exchequer, 
has challenged Mr Hattersley 
to produce his own figures. 

The two new audits, carried 
out by Phillips and Drew, the 
City stockbrokers, and the 
Item club of independent 
forecasters, come too close to 
agreeing with Mr MacGregor 
to be ignored by the Labour 
Party. 

The main dispute between 
the new studies and the Trea- 
sury is about how Labour 
would fund its programme - 
by increased borrowing or by 
pushing up income tax or 
VAT. 

The Phillips and Drew audit 
gives some consolation to Mr 
Hattersley by not agreeing 
with Mr MacGregor that a 
Labour government would 
have to raise income tax from 
29p to 53p in the pound. It 
estimated that if the Oppo- 
sition borrowed more money 
as well, income tax would 
need to go up by only one 


penny in the pound in each of 
the third, fourth and fifth 
years of a Labour government. 

But this would be at the 
expense of government 
borrowing rising to £23biilion 
a year by the end of a five-year 
Parliament The audit report 
concluded that the Treasury 
was overlooking Labour's pro- 
posals for a revamped me- 
dium-term financial strategy. 

The Item group's study, 
commissioned by The Sunday 
Times . calculated that on the 
policies so far announced, a 
Labour government would 
have to borrow up to £26bil- 
lion a year by 1990. This 
compares with the present 
Government’ borrowing tar- 
get this year of £7.5 billion. 

The analysis said that 
Labour government would 
have to borrow £I5-£16 bil- 
lion in its first year in office; 
£18-£20 billion in the second 
year and £23-£26billion in the 
third year. 

The Item group also ques- 
tioned Mr Hattersley's plan to 
cut unemployment by one 
million. The extra spending 
planned by a Labour govern- 
ment would probably reduce 
it by only 500.000. it said. 

Mr Hattersley said the Item 
group's analysis “is in no 
sense independent" and Mr 
MacGregor's costings were 
based on false assumptions of 
Labour's plans. 

“Having said this, of course 
Labour will spend more than 
the present Government We 
will spend on jobs, health, 
education and industrial 
investment Even a modest 
assumption of the annual 
growth rate - say 2 per cent - 
will yield an extra £3.000 
million per annum to finance 
extra spending". 

He said the Shadow Cabinet 
had argued that it would work 
within a firm framework of 
financial control. Extra 
borrowing would be nothing 
like the £26 billion estimated 
by the Item group. 


Stalker in 
long wait 
for ruling 
on his fate 

Peter Davenport 

Mr John Stalker, the sus- 
pended Deputy Chief Con- 
stable of Greater Manchester, 
must wait onto at least August 
22 for the results of an inquiry 
into disciplinary all ega tions 
a gafost 

Thaf is when the Greater 
Manchester Police Authority 
will consider a report on 
allegations arising from his 
17-year friendship with Mr 
Kerin Taylor, a Manchester 
businessman «wf finim, tint 
he kept unwise associations 
with criminals. 

Yesterday Mr Stalker de- 
nied a report in The Sunday 
Times that he has been told 
unofficially that he has been 
cleared. 

As he prepared for a famil y 
party at his home near War- 
burton in Cheshire, he said: “I 
do not know if the report that I 
have been denied is true or 
not 

“I do know that I have not 
been told, either officially or 
unofficially that that is the 
case. Regretfully It has not 
been said, I only wish it had." 
The report of the nine-week 


'Mr ' 







Mr Colin Sampson, Chid 
Constable of West Yorkshire. 
Each copy of the 1,500-page 
report nuts to seven, blue- 
bound volumes. 

It landed on the desk of Mr 
Rowland Moyle, deputy chair- 
man of the independent Police 
Complaints Authority and 
supervising officer in the in- 
vestigation, at tiie end of last 
week. 

Mr Moyle does not expect 
to finish his consideration of 
the report until the end of this 


Mr John Stalker at home yesterday. The 

week. The Police Complaints 
Authority has to authorize the 
inquiry as being fully and 
properly carried oat but it has 
DO rote in i wftnunwdtng 
whether action should be 
taken apina Mr Stalker. 

A decision on whether Mr 
Stalker should face disci- 
plinary charges can only be 
taken by the Greater Man- 
chester Policy Authority. 

Yesterday its acting chair- 
man, Mr David Moffatt, a 
Labour councillor, said that 
the Authority had not yet 
received its copies of the 


-week inquiry has tab 

report He would be the first to 
receive it, cm August 14. 

It is known that Mr Samp- 
son was asked to consider any 
possibility of involvement by 
either MI5 or the freemasons 
in the allegations 

He was also to consider a 
possible Northern Ireland 
connection, because of Mr 
Stalker's role in beading an 
investigation into an alleged 
sfaoot-to-kiD policy by the 
Royal Ulster Constabulary. It 
is. believed that the report 
comes oat against these 
theories. 


en its toll on his family 


Mr Stalker was sent on 
extended leave on May 29, 
four days before be was due to 

return to Northern Ireland to 

finish his investigation. He 
was later formally suspended. 

He said yesterday: “My 
period away from work has 
had a profound affect on my 
family. I am a professional and 
can understand to a huge 
extent the procedures that 
have to be gone through. But 
my family don't understand 
and they have been saddened, 
and confused. 


Three to compete in chess play-off 

By Hairy Gotombek, Chess Correspondent 


Three players tied for first 
place in the Kleinwort 
Grieveson British Chess 
Championship in Southamp- 
ton yesterday after a thrilling 
last round. 

Murray Chandler. Jonathan 
Mestel and Jonathan 
Speelman, all grandmasters, 
took 8 points each out of 1 1. 

There will be a play-off 
between them, with place and 
time yet to be derided. 


Glen Rear and Daniel King, 
who are international masters, 
came next, half a point 
behind. 

Chandler had been half a 
point behind Mestel and 
Sped man before the last 
round. Chandler played black 
against Michael Basman, an 
international master. Mestel 
and Speelman were white 
against Rear and King. 

Speelman played a surpris- 


ingly quick draw with King.' 
and Chandler defeated 
Basman after a hard fight in 
which Basman blundered. 

The last game to finish was 
Mesiel-Flear. Mestel was two 
points up in a rook ending but 
Rear defended well and man- 
aged to draw the game.

Spectacles 
poll ends 
old myth 

The old saying: “Men sel- 
dom make passes at girls who 
wear glasses", is. untrue, 
according to the results of a 
survey published today. 

The survey, by the Gallup 
organization, shows that 89 
per cent of people tho^ht that 
the saying was nonsense. 

It aiso found that while 80 
per cent of people aged ova* 35 
in the United Kingdom wear 
glasses, only one in 10 is self- 
consdons about them. 

• Topping a poll iff spectade- 
wearing personalities were 
Michael Caine, the actor, and 
Anne Kirkbride, the actress 
who plays Deidie Barlow in 
Coronation StreeL 

Michael Caine was followed 
by Cliff Richard, Leslie 
Crowther, Ronnie Corbett, 
Dennis Taylor and Sir Robin 
Day. Miss Kirkbride finished 
ahead of So Pollard, the 
Queen, Sophia Loren, Nana 
Monskouri, Felicity Kendal 
and Marjorie Proops. 

The survey, commissioned 
by tiie British American Op- 
tical Company, showed that 
men generally have more pairs 
of glasses than women, that 
the Scots are more fashion- 
consdons, and that girls in 
Yorkshire are more sdf-con- 
srioos about wearing glasses 
than anyone else in Britain. 

When choosing glasses, 
men and women look first for 
comfort and style, then fash- 
ion, with price finishing

Alliance 
seeks 
unity on 
defence 

By Our Political Staff 

Social Democratic and Lib- 
eral Party strategists ha\c 
acted to’ stop supporters 
widening the rift on defence 
policy during the annual con 
faiences next month. 

The motions accepted for 
debate at the SDP’s con- 
ference in Harrogate call for 
the Alliance logo into the next 
general election with a joint 
defence policy. 

In the Liberals’ assembly 
delegates are told that 
no amendments will be taken 
to the Alliance's blueprint 
Priorities for the 1990s. These 
two moves make it more 
difficult for delegates to press 
for changes in policy. 

The rift has been caused by 
Dr David Owen's call for a 
dear Alliance commitment to 
replace Polaris when it be- 
comes obsolete unless world 
circumstances change 
dramatically. 

Mr David Steel the Liberal 
leader, prefers to go along with 
an earlier Alliance report 
which said the decision could 
be put off for years. 

Mrs Shirley Williams, the 
SDP’s president, in her report 
in the agenda released today . 
tries to emphasize the scale of 
agreement between the two 
parties on defence. 

She says: "The exercise 
(Partnership for Progress) has 
already shown how close the 
two parties' views are, even on 
defence, though the specific 
issue of the replacement of 
Polaris revealed some dif- 
ferences of opinion within and 
between the parties, hardly 
surprising given the uncertain- 
ties of the intematinal scene 
and the unpredictable out- 
come of the superpower 
disarmament talks in 
Geneva.” 

The Social Democrats are 
likely to devote more time to 
examining their defence pol- 
icy, with a two-hour debate 
planned. 

The only discussion on the 
subject at the Liberal assembly 
will come during a general 
debate on the wide-ranging 
Priorities for the 1990s docu- 
ment But the party will 
concentrate more on nuclear 
energy with a motion calling 
for a planned phasing out of 
all nuclear power. 

The SDP conference or- 
ganizers have not selected for 
debate a defence motion from 
the Glasgow North area party 
welcoming a commitment to 
"negotiating a real reduction 
and eventual elimination of 
nuclear weapons, so that 
though in certain circum- 
stances h may be necessary to 
replace Polans. our priority in 
government would be towards 
achieving success in such 
negotiations which would 
make such replacement 
necessary" 


Thatcher 
acts to end 
reports of 
Tebbit rift 

By Our Political Staff 

Mrs Margaret Thatcher will 
set off on her Cornish holiday 
today hopeful that she has 
managed to end. reports of a 
serious rift between herself 
and Mr Norman Tebbit. the 
Conservative Party chairman. 

Mr Tebbit and his wife. 
Margaret, are also off on 
holiday to France after what a 
close adviser described as. 
“one of the most unpleasant 
weeks of his life". 

Downing Street had denied 
speculation last uvok that he 
was on the point or resigning 
because of differences with the 
Prime Minister. But much to 
Mrs Thatcher’s consternation, 
reports of a rift continued. 

There was no contact be- 
tween the two last week. Mr 
Tebbit was in Devon, only 
returning to London on Fri- 
day. while Mrs Thatcher was 
at the Commonwealth mini- 
summit before going into 
King Edward Vi! Hospital for 
Officers in London for surgery 
on her right hand. 

News of Mrs Thatcher’s 
long telephone call to Mr 
Tebbit on Saturday will do far 
more to demonstrate that he 
still enjoys her confidence. 
During the calL from Che- 
quers to Mr Tebbit’s London’ 
home. Mrs Thatcher made 
plain that she considered the 
stories to be untnie. 

He is expected to remain as 
chairman after the autumn 
reshuffle, although a new dep- 
uty will be brought in to 
concentrate oh presenting the 
Government's policies and 
record in the run-up to the 
next general election. 

Mrs Thatcher is known to 
be unhappy that the Govern- 
ment's message is not getting 
across to the electorate. But 
most of her colleagues accept 
this as a normal problem 
when a Government is half- 
way through a second term. 

There is no doubt that Mr 
Tcbbit's health is causing 
concern among his colleagues, 
as he still suffers pain from the 
injuries inflicted by the bomb 
explosion at the Grand Hotel, 
Brighton, 22 months ago.

Damselfly rescue 


Anglian Water has launched 
an operation in Lincolnshire 
to save the damselfly. a slen- 
der-bodied species of the 
dragonfly. 

There are 16 breeding vari- 
eties in Britain although three 
are thought to be extinct. Ten 
of those remaining have been 
identified in surveys of local 
waters in the past 18 months, 
eight of them within a 12-mile 
radius of Lincoln. 

Many of their normal habi- 
tats are highly vulnerable to 
pollution, changing water lev- 


els. removal of aquatic vegeta- 
tion, destruction of bankside 
habitat and overstocking with 
ducks or fish. 

Dr Chris Extence. a water 
authority biologist, said: “Cer- 
tain parts of Lincolnshire 
undoubtedly form important 
refuges for these spectacular 
insects and measures are now 
being taken to help conserve 
critical habitats, to preserve 
the existing damselfly popula- 
tion and hopefully encourage 
additional species to breed" 


Ulster turmoil 


Deputy challenges Paisley 


By Richard Ford 


The streetwise in Northern 
Ireland always say that when 
the Rev Ian Paisley is absent 
from the country trouble be- 
gins. Others add now that 
while tiie “big man" Is away, 
his deputy will play. 

Bat rarely has Northern 
Ireland witnessed the sight of 
Mr Paisley, leader of the 
Democratic Unkuist Party, 
cutting short a tour of the 
United States to return home, 
ostensibly to support his dep- 
uty, Mr Peter Robinson. 

It is the second time this 
year that be has hurried home 
from America, and while no 
one should underestimate his 
ability, popularity and 
determination to remain the 
leader of bis own creation, Mr 
Paisley's position is being 
eroded and exposed by the 
latest crisis facing muoaism. 

It Is not often that Mr 
Paisley, aged 60, is seen in the 
role of sideshow to his deputy 
and if Mr Robinson travels to 
the Irish Republic for hb court 
appearance one thing is ess- 
tain — Mr Paisley wffl be at 
his side for the pictures and 
headlines. 

In the 20 years since his 
political career began Ire has 
commanded the scene with a 
mixture of erode anti-Roman 
Catholic rhetoric, daring pub- 
licity stunts and burlesque 
good humour.. He remains a 
master at coups that both 
delight Us supporters- and 
homfy respectable opinion, 
but he is ageing and visibly 
tiring. 

His party has expanded 
from being kttie more-then an 
adjunct to his other creation, 
the Free Presbyterian Church, 
so that It rivals' the older' 
Official Unionists organize- 



Mr Peter Robinson, role 
seen as threat to leader. 

t.; . 



The Rev Ian Paisley, Ameri- 
can trip cot short. 

tion and he has had to delegate 
authority to younger ambitious 
men. 

With seats at Westminster 
and the European Parliament 
and at least three preaching 
engagements every Sunday it 
is a punishing pace. Party 
colleagues privately admit that 
he s no longer the fount of all 
wisdom and tactics or as sharp 
and surefooted as be was years 
ago. They insist that he wifi 
romam as leader for as long as 


he wishes, but some foresee a 
time when he will increasingly 
be a figurehead, white others 
are In the forefront of the 
political battle. 

White his base is rooted in 
niral Protestant Northern Ire- 
land. with its deep conser- 
vatism and strict adherence to 
the sabbath, many of those 
attracted to the party, because 
of its populism and more 
working class base, have ur- 
ban backgrounds and the 
advantage of further 
education. 

Several of them are dose 
allies of Mr Robinson, who, at 
37, is credited with being the 
person who organized the 
party into a political machine, 
and in the process made 
himself an independent and 
indispensable deputy to Mr 
Paisley. 7 

Although a non-drinker and 
non-smoker who did not come 
to the DUP via the Free 
Presbyterian Church, Mr 
Robinson, with a vast blue- 
collar constituency in east. 
Belfast, is aware of the ddi- 
' cate balance that must be 
drawn between firmly uphold- 
ing Sabbatarian principles and 
the wishes of many working 
class voters. 

Bat it is on the issue of 
hardline tactics to oppose the 
Anglo-Irish agreement that 
the most obvious divisions 
occur between Mr Paisley and 
his deputy. The paramilitaries 
and hardliners have lost faith 
an the DUP leader, while 
wondering whether in Mr 
Robinson they have found a 
man to lead them into 
confrontation. His appearance 
*n Co Monaghan has not. 
disappointed them.

in banks, certificates 
and Premium Bonds 


A “sleeping economy” of 
forgotten savings certificates, 
dormant- bank ■ accounts and 
unclaimed Premium Bond 
prizes, together worth more 
than £i billion, is being built 
up in Britian. 

This mountain of appar- 
ently unwanted money is 
growing steadily, helped by 
the increasing tendency of 
people to change banks more 
frequently. 

The Department of Na- 
tional Savins said yesterday 
that. £163,881,000 was in- 
vested in accounts fiat have 
been declared inactive. 

This means that the 
46,935,000 Post Office saving 
accounts have not been 
touched for five years or more, 
and are apparently forgotten. 

In addition, the department 
said that there were pre-war 
savings certificates worth £13 
million. “out there 
somewhere**, which have yet 
to be redeemed. 

The main clearing basks 
will not disclose bow much is' 
lying in dormant accounts, bm 
the value of 58,683 unclaimed 
Premium Bond prizes 
amounts to £3,494, 1 00. 

Mr Michael Fesemeyer, a 
banking expert with the stock- 


brokers, Savory MiHn, said 
that the amount of dormant 
money must be substantial 
and was bound to increase as 
people moved from tank to 
bank more often, and left 
small amounts behind 

The dormant accounts area 
mixed Messing for the banks, 
which are reluctant to discuss 
numbers. Although they pro- 
vide a core of stable money, 
die individual amounts tend 
to be small and the accounts 
are expensive to process. 

Although bank managers 
try regularly to chase up the 
holders of dormant accounts, 
Mr Fesemeyer said: “If the 
holders suddenly withdrew all 
their money and spent it, 1 
think it would hit the clearing 
banks quite hard, depriving 
them of money they could use 
elsewhere.” 

Building societies will not 
disclose either exactly how 
much money is in dormant 
accounts. A spokesman for the 
Building Societies Association 
said that a very conservative 
estimate would suggest about 
£6 million. 

A new “growth** area for 
slumbering cash is in un- 
claimed share dividends. 
More and more people own 


shares, often through staff 
share schemes, increasing the 
- number of certificates that can 
be lost, forgotten or left in the 
attic. 

Already there are special 
bank accounts into which 
companies pay dividends due 
to people who have apparently 
disappeared. 

Occasionally the sleeping 
economy stirs. This year, 
negotiations with both China 
ana the Soviet Union have 
raised the possibility that mil- 
lions of pounds owed to 
United Kingdom holders of 
pre-revolutionary bonds 
might be paid. 

The news caused a flurry 
among inheritors of the 
bonds, who had hitherto 
thought of them as a superior 
kind of wallpaper. 

Nobody knows what would 
happen if all the dormant, 
money were to be daimed and' 
spent. Some economists be- 
lieve h might give a modest, 
but healthy, boost to the 
economy. 

But. with the chances being 
slim of millions of people 
simultaneously reclaiming 
their forgotten funds, they will 
have to be content to let 
deeping cash lie.

Yard to revive 
art theft squad 

By Stewart Tendler, Crime Reporter 


Scotland Yard is to resur- 
rect its arts and antiques 
squad after an internal survey 
showed a need for the special- 
ist team in the light of national 
and international art theft. 

The squad, considered the 
best of its kind in the country, 
was disbanded several years' 
ago as part of an efficiency and 
reorganization drive. There 
was an outcry from dealers, 
who feared its disappearance 
would open the way for more 
art thefts and frauds. 

Detectives had built np a 
computerized system of 
records with tens of thousands 
of entries.- and issued bulletins 
on thefts or criminal opera- 
. lions. An index on art crime 
continued to be maintained 
for use by London and provin- 
cial forces. 

The inquiry showed that 
there would be plenty of work 
for detectives in this country, 
and working with detectives 
abroad, as the theft of art or 
antiques continues to expand. 

The hew squad, under the 
command of a detective chief 
inspector, wifi expand the 
index and update the files, 
working with other forces and 
specialist groups maintained 
in a number of countries. The 
team, which will be part of the 
Yard’s Cl detective branch, 
will be smaller than its 
predecessor. 


• The number of applicants 
wanting to transfer from the 
Metropolitan Police to other 
areas of the country has been 
rising so steeply that almost as 
many officers have applied to 
leave this year as for the whole 
of 1985. 

According to figures re- 
leased by Scotland Yard, 326 
officers had asked for a trans- 
fer up to the last week of July. 
Last year a total of 397 officers 
sought a transfer but no 
figures are available of the 
number who actually moved. 

This year the latest figures 
show that 137 officers have 
■ been allowed to transfer. The 
vast majority are constables. 

The exodus represents less 
than 2 per cent of the 27,000- 
strong London force but will 
wony senior officers who 
have unproved selection and 
training in recent years. 

All officers seeking a trans- 
fer have been interviewed 
about their reasons and the 
majority refer to domestic 
factors. A huxnber say they 
wish to return to their home 
towns and go on to join other 
targe urban forces. 

The rise comes in the wake 
of the street disorders in 
Brixton and Tottenham last 
autumn. Senior officers have 
accepted that such disorders 
can increase pressure . and 
stress on police. 


Firms ‘unprepared for 
computer sabotage 9 

By Bill Johnstone, Technology Correspondent 


Few British companies 
appreciate the damage com- 
puter saboteurs can do, and 
have . no proper insurance 
cover, according to a com- 
puter insurance director. 

Yet most companies are so 
dependent on computers that 
' any such tinkering would 
throw the business into chaos, 
Mr David Davies, a director 
of the risk management di- 
vision of Hogg Robinson, the 
insurance brokers, added 
He said the spread, of micro- 


computers meant more and 
more people were acquiring 
technical skills. It was becom- 
ing increasingly common for 
disgruntled staff to program 
instructions into the computer 
that would be triggered only 
aftertheir departure. 

Most companies had no 
insurance for the con- 
sequences of such logic time- 
.bombs, he said. Companies 
tended to be. uninsured even 
for accidental computer 
breakdowns. 


Wanted 
Briton in 
Costa Rica 

By Our Crime Reporter 

One of the Britons sought 
by Scotland Yard For 
questioning about the £26 
million Brinks-Mat robbery 
has been discovered living' in 
Costa Rica, after vanishing 
last month while awaiting 
expulsion fro in Spairti 

John Fleming's flight comes 
at a time when there is 
growing concern in London 
that Spain's new legislation 
controlling aliens may en- 
counter difficulties in Spanish 
courts. 

Mr Fleming, aged 45, for- 
merly of south London, dis- 
appeared nearly two weeks 
ago after the courts ruled that 
he would have to leave Spain 
because of passport irregular- 
ities which breached the new 
Aliens Act 

Friends reported that he 
had gone to Brazil, but Scot- 
land Yard was suspicious and 
he has been traced to a hotel in 
Costa Rica, a past haven for 
Britons expelled from Spain. 

The country is one of a 
number in Latin America that 
have no extradition arrange- 
ments with Britain, but the 
Yard has sent out an officer to 
discuss the position with the 
authorities. Last year Costa 
Rica announced that im- 
migration rules were being 

reviewed. 

Another senior Scotland 
Yard officer is doe to travel to 
Spain in the next few weeks to 
talk to authorities in Madrid 
about the progress of the 
Aliens Art . 

Two Britons have been 
excluded from Spain by the 
Act but last week there were 
reports that three others, 
inducting men linked to the £6 
million Security Express rob- 
bery in 1983, have successfully 
appealed against attempts to 
force them to leave. 

There is concern that the 
grounds for successful appeals 
could be used to protect others 
wanted in Britain. Up to 15 
expulsion orders have been 
served on Britons since the 
spring and a number are going 
through the court process at 
present

Pioneering 
surgery for 
Stan the crane 

A veterinary surgeon at 
Bristol University has per- 
formed what is believed to be 
the first operation to implant 
artificial ligaments in a bird. 

The Stanley crane at the 
Rode Tropica] Bird Gardens, 
Somerset, is making a good 
recovery from the operation. 

Dr Alan Goodship, of the 
Bristol University Veterinary 
School, operated on the crane, 
named Stan, after its leg was 
hurt when it was scared by a 
low-flying aeroplane. 

The stf-dissohring poly- 
ester ligaments will help the 
bird to move until its natural 
ligaments grow back. 

Dr Goodship, who- had 
previously used- the treatment 
only on -horses, said: “It was 
his last chance so Fm pleased I 
was able to help”.

Divorced 
wife may 
inherit 

A Bristol woman may in- 
herit £15,000 insurance money 
from the man She thought she 
had divorced. 

The parents of Mr Simon 
Wookey, a welder, aged 24, 
who was killed in a holiday 
road crash, want Mrs Sandra 
Wookey to waive her right to 
the cash in favoar ©f her 
fhiMnPw. Mr Wooiuy died 
intestate. 

Mrs Wookey, aged 24, be- 
lieved that she was divorced 
when the decree nisi forms 
were posted to the registrar on 
a Friday afternoon. But on the 
same day her estranged hus- 
band, was knocked off his 
hired moped on a Greek 
island, and died. 

The weekend postal delay 
meant that the divorce could 
not be nude absolute until the 
Monday morning. 

Mr Wookey’s parents want 
their daughter-in-law to pat 
the money into a trust fund for 
her children, Daniel, aged 
seven, and Luke, Med four. 

They live with Mrs Wookey 
and her friend, Mr Steve 
Nethercotf, at the bouse in 
Water-bridge Road, Bristol 
she shared with her husband 
until 10 months ago. 

Mrs Wookey has refused to 
comment but Mr Nethercotf 
said that she had not agreed to 
the trust fond plan. 

Mr N ethe reott , aged 30, 
sakk “Whatever money comes 
into his bouse will go straight 
to the children. After all it only 
adds up to 15 years* mainte- 
nance money which was what 
she had coming to her 
anyway.” ■ 

• In law, Mrs Wookey would 
not have inherited the money If 
her divorce had been made 
absolute because she would no 
longer be regarded as his next 
of kin. 


Medical negligence 

£lm award ‘is on horizon 9 

By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent. 


Britain's first £1 million 
award to a victim of medical 
negligence “looms ominously 
on the horizon”, doctors have 
been told. 

The number of doctors 
befog sued has doubled in the 
past 10 years, accompanied by 
a “sensational” increase in the 
sums awarded by the courts 
and paid to settle negligence 
claims, according to the trea- 
surer of the Medical Defence 
Union, Dr Hugh Halle. 

“The rise in the frequency 
and cost of litigation is certain 
to continue,” Dr Halle has 
written in the latest issue of 
the union's Journal. 

“On any day, any member 
of the union, irrespective of 
status or seniority, may be 
involved in a mishap which 
may lead lo a huge claim,” he. 


said. Last year, sums exceed- 
ing £600,000 were awarded in 
individual cases, and the £1 
million award “looms omi- 
nously on the horizon”. 

“We can see some of the 
results of fear of litigation,” 
Dr Halle said. “Many doctors 
and dentists are already 
practising ‘defensive 
medicine'; the caesarian sec- 
tion rate is rising and in- 
vestigations are carried out 
which are not clinically nec- 
essary, but whose omission 
might be criticized in court” 

Although patients should be 
told of the principal risks of a 
procedure, over-emphasizing 
those risks could lead to them 
refusing to accept, potentially 
life-saving treatment Patients 
who were damaged as a result 
of negligence deserved 
compensation, he. said. 


The Medical Defence 
Union represents about 
80,000 doctors and dentists in 
Britain, providing advice and 
assistance 'to members who 
have claims made against 
them. It is the biggest 
organization of its kind in the 
world. 

Dr Halle gave a warning 
that the rise in the frequency 
and cost of litigation meant 
“steep increases” in members' 
subscriptions were 
unavoidable. 

The union will announce its 
new rates later this month. A 
report in the current issue of 
General Practitioner, ; a weekly 
magazine for doctors, says the 
increases could be as much as 
70 per cenL A spokesman for 
the union would not confirm 
the figures at the weekend. 


Fears for former patients 


Mind, the mental health 
association, has called for 
greater supervision of people 
discharged from psychiatric 
hospitals after an inquiry into 
the suicide of 1 5 patients of St 
John's Psychiatric Hospital. 
Lincoln. 

The association daimed 
that the effects of hospital 
closures and inadequate 
community care on the safety 
and mental health of dis- 
charged 1 patients' were leading 
to an increase in suicides. 

It called on the Government 
to provide up-to-date figures 
on suicide rates. “We will be 
asking the minister to com- 
ment on these figures in 
relation to the implementa- 
tion of_ its Care-in-tbe- 
Community 1 policy,” Mrs 


By JSU Sherman 

Lydia Sinclair, Mind's legal 
officer, said. 

The policy, introduced in 
1981. encouraged the closure 
of large mental health institu- 
tions., and the provision of 
alternative community 
services. 

Trent Regional Health 
Authority announced last 
week that it wottld hold an 
independent inquiry into sui- 
cides at St John's Hospital in 
the • past 19 months, after 
relatives had complained that 
the hospital may have released 
patients too early. 

Cohse, the health service 
union, has threatened to take 
industrial action at the hos- 
pital due to close in 1991, in 
protest against the alleged 
early discharges. 

The union was due to start a 


work-to-ru!c campaign today, 
but on Friday officials gave 
North Lincolnshire Health 
Authority seven days to con- 
sider a series of proposals. 

Three of the IS suicides 
were hospital in-patients while 
seven were on tnal leave. The 
remainder were patients who 
had been discharged for sev- 
eral months. 

A spokeswoman for St 
John's Hospital said that the 
inquiry had been instigated 
after national publicity about 
the deaths. 

Office of Population Cen- 
suses and Surveys figures 
showed that Trent had the 
second highest suicide rate in 
Britain, with 374 suicides 
recorded in 1984. In the West 
Midlands, 411 suicides were 
reported. 


Baby from ‘family at 
risk 9 dies of Aids 


A baby in Manchester has 
died after contracting Aids 
(acquired immune deficiency 
sydromel a North West Re- 
gional Health Authority 
spokesman said yesterday. 

Mr Ian Rhodes, the 
authority's regionalpress and 
public relations officer, said 
that the child aged about 12 
months was from a family 
classed as being “at risk”, but 
it was not a haemophiliac. 

“The child probably con- 
tracted Aids during preg- 
nancy, or just after, from its 
mother” be said. To protect 
the family, no further details 
were being disclosed. 

Reports that the child died 
at Manchester's Monsall Iso^ 


lation Hospital' were dis- 
missed by a spokesman. 

Mr Rhodes said that the 
death occurred in the plast two 
weeks. “If a mother carries the 
Aids virus we think there is a 
50 per cent chance of that 
being passed on to a child 
during, or just after, preg- 
nancy. 

“However, the chances of 
-the child then passing it on to 
other members of the family 
are virtually nil,” be said. 

Mr Rhodes rejected reports 
that the baby died in an 
ambulance. He would not 
confirm other reports that it 
died in a private car on its way 
to hospital- 


Aids threat behind call 
to rethink TV series 


The Channel 4 television 
company has been urged by 
Mrs Mary Whitchouse to 
reconsider plans to broadcast 
a series on homosexuality, in 
view of the rising incidence of 
Aids. 

Mrs Whhehouse, president 
of the National Viewers’ and 
Listeners* Association, said 
yesterday that she had written 
to Mr Jeremy Isaacs, the 
company’s chief executive, to 
express concern about the 
series. Six of Hearts, which is 
due to be screened in the 
autumn. 

"It is essential, for 
everyone's sake, that before 


these programmes are shown, 
they are most dosely scruti- 
nized for any verbal or visual 
element which could make 
being -‘gay' appear normal or 
in any way to be 
recommended.” 

She was worried also about 
a project for a magazine 
programme on homosexual 
concerns, presently under dis- 
cussion at Channel 4. Every- 
thing possible should be- done 
to protect the public from the 
terrible threat of Aids, she 
said. 

Channel 4 declined to com- 
ment until Mr Isaacs had 
received her letter. 


Gory days again at ‘house of horror’ 


By Gavin Bell, Arts Correspondent 


Shrieks which have been 
issuing from a reputedly 
haunted seventeenth century 
mansion in Berkshire owe 
their origin to the activities of 
Mr John Boorman, foe film 
director, and not to a revival of 
the spirits. 

Sounds of tear began to 
emanate from the former 
Hammer Flints “House of' 
Horror” near Bray last Friday 
when he arrived .to direct 
scenes in Hope nod G lory, a 
film about a family enduring 
the w ar tim e blitz of London. 

The prediction, starring Sa- 
rah Miles and Ian Batmen, is 


title first since the boose by the 
Thames was bought from an 
industrial holding company 
two years ago. 

The Sam nelson FDm Ser- 
vice has equipped the studios 
with a £1 million custom-built 
sound stage, the first to be 
constructed in Britain for 
many years, and Is optimistic 
that the new facilities will help 
to revive the ailing UK film 
iaissttfy. 

Mr Sydney Samudsoo, the 
company chairman, said yes- 
terday: “AH four stages in the 
complex are fully booked until 
October with the Boorman 


film and several television 
productions.” 

His mam concern for die 
future was a relative lack of 
government support for in- 
dependent producers. “Com- 
pared with other countries, 
stale assistance in Britain is 
sadty tacking”, be said; 

“Producers in France and 
Australia, for example, benefit 
from important government 
subsidies, and it shows. 

Mr Tony Bagley, manager 
of the Bray studios since 197L 
said he was delighted by die 
transformation. 


Dncuta and Frankenstein 
moved out of the mansion 20 
years ago, when Hammer 
transferred its spinechiOers to 
Clstree, Hertfordshire. They 
left behind a mysterious lady 
In bine who is said tohauntan 
upstairs corridor. 

“Nobody has seen or heard 
anything of her since we 
moved in”, Mr Samueteon 
saHL “It might be something to 
do with ns removing the 
Idtosyacracies of the old 
plumbing system. Or she 
could be pitting for absent 
friends.”

Champion 
yacht is 
relaunched 

By Barry Pickthall 

Endeavour, the 1 30ft J Class 
racing yacht built in 1934 for 
Sir Thomas Sopwilh’s first 
challenge for the America's 
Cup. was re-launched at 
Calshot, Southampton, 
yesterday .seven years after 
restoration began to return the 
once-crusting hulk to its for- 
mer splendour. 

The 150-ton sloop, the only 
British yacht to win the 
America's Cup twice, cost 
£ 110,000 to build, and was 
one of only 1 0 built to contest 
the cup before the New York 
Yacht Gub. the trophy's 
custodians, reverted to 12 - 
metre class yachts after the 
war. She changed hands for a 
reputed £10 in 1978 when 
John Amos took on the task of 
rebuilding her. 

He sold the hulk in 1984 to 
Elizabeth Meyer, aged 33, the 
American heiress who is a 
member of the banking and 
newspaper publishing family. 

Miss Meyer, who describes 
herself as single and single- 
minded, has made a small 
fortune for herself in real 
estate dealings. 

She has spent £2 million 
replacing all but the mast step 
of the yacht, and those who 
have worked alongside her 
expert the bill to be more than 
£5 million before Endeavour is 
finally fitted out and re-rigged 
in two years' time. 

“Endeavour ’ s rusting steel 
frames and plating were like 
laeeworic, and we've replaced 
almost every bit of her, bit by 
bit to retain her exact lines,” 
one restorer said yesterday as 
the yacht slid gracefully back 
into the water to cheers from 
hundreds of onlookers. 
Endeavour will be towed to 
Germany to be fitted out in 
the style of an old-fashioned 
men's club with five state- 
rooms and crew quarters for 
10 . 

Miss Meyer hopes to race 
her against VelshcdaAstm and 
Shamrock, the only other 
remaining J class yachts, in 
exhibition races in the Medi- 
terranean, West Indies, and 
New England.

Fight against asthmacl 

Inadequate treatment 
is blamed for most 
deaths from disease 


One in every 10 children is 
an asthma sufferer, and al- 
though more research than 
ever is being conducted, a cure 
remains elusive. 

Improvements in treatment 
in the past 20 years mean that 
asthmatics can be helped and 
protected by a range of drags 
and inhalants. Even so, the 
condition remains for many a 
daily, or frequent, blight on 
their lives and a constant 
worry for their families. 

More wotrying is the fact 
that in spite of apparent 
progress, the annual death toll 
is practically the same as it 
was almost 30 years ago. 
“There is evidence from sev- 
eral surveys of asthma deaths 
that inadequate and dilatory 
treatment, and failure to rec- 
ognize the need for immediate 
admission to hospital, are 
responsible for most asthma 
deaths," according to Mr Ian 
Grant, senior lecturer in medi- 
cine at Edinburgh University, 
writing in Asthma News. 

Similar concern has been 
expressed recently by the 
Asthma Research Council, the 
leading charity for asthmatics, 
which is funding more than 40 
research projects. 

Researchers are striving to 
solve some of asthma's many 
mysteries. Is it hereditary? 
What role do allergies to house 
mites and other substances 
play? What happens during 
sleep to aggravate the con-' 
dilion and make the early 
morning hours the most dan- 


About 2,000 people in Britain died last year from at- 
tacks of asthma, a condition which effects more than 
(wo-arid-a-half million of the population. In the first of 
two articles. Thomson Prentice, Science Correspon- 
dent ; looks at the causes and available treatment. 


gerous? Which subtle inter- 
plays in the body's cbemistiy 
pose threats, and which offer 
hope of medical advances? 

It is an affliction misunder- 
stood by many, including 
some of its victims, and which 
even general practitioners fail 
to recognize in some cases. 

Asthma is a respiratory 
disease characterized by inter- 
mittent bouts of breathing 
difficulty. A sufferer feels a 
tightness and an inability to 
expand the chest. Distress 
increases' rapidly, the whole 
body heaving with the effort of 
getting air, often with the 
victim wheezing desperately. 

In such attacks, which can 
last a few minutes or persist 
for several days, the flow of 
oxygen to the lungs is ham- 
pered because of sudden 
contractions of the bronchial 
tubes. These airways narrow 
because the muscle surround- 
ing them tightens. 

In a severe attack, the inner 
walls of the tubes become 
irritated and swollen, produc- 
ing phlegm. 

A variety of external factors 
will act as triggers leading to 
an attack. The most common 
causes are dust, pollen, smoke, 
contact with animals and cold 
air. exercise, particularly in 


children, and infections, both 
bacterial and viraL 

The most commonly used 
drugs are bronchodilators, 
which act by relaxing the 
muscle surrounding the on 
chial tubes, thus allowing the 
airways to widen. The drugs 
are chemically similar to 
adrenalin, which increases 
heart rate and switches blood 
circulation to the muscles, and 
the most commonly pre- 
scribed are fenoterol, 
salbuiamol and terbutaline. 

Most asthmatics use 
bronchodilators in the form of 
aerosol inhalers, which pro- 
duce an almost immediate 
effect lasting four to six hours, 
and which are safe from side 
effects. 

Inhalers for preventing 
more troublesome attacks 
contain corticosteroids, which 
work by making the walls of 
the airways less swollen and 
less sensitive to irritants. 
However, they take several 
days to begin to make an 
impact. 

Severe episodes of asthma 
may occasionally require 
short courses of steroid tab- 
lets.

Benefit rule Ms hidden cut 9 

By Jill Sherman 


The Government has been 
accused of relinquishing its 
responsibility to provide fur-, 
niiure and bedding for those 
in need. 

The Child Poverty Action 
Group claims that cuts in 
lump sum grants lor those on 
supplementary benefit, which 
come into force today, will hit 
hardest the long-term un- 
employed and families with 
children. 

The new regulations, ex- 
pected to save £100 million, 
relate to single payments, 
which are one-off grants for 
those claiming supplementary 
benefit or housing benefit 
supplement, to help with the 


cost of special expenses which 
cannot be met from weekly 
‘supplementary benefit 

The changes, which impose 
restrictions on those entitled 
to grants, come after govern- 
ment concern that the single 
payment system was being 
widely abused. 

However Miss Fran Ben- 
nett the group's deputy direc- 
tor, said that evidence from 
independent research studies 
showed that unmet need 
rather than abuse, was the 
main problem. 

“These cut-backs in effect 
mean a. concealed cut in 
benefit rates for the growing 
number of people dependent 


on supplementary benefit" 
she said yesterday. 

Single payments were made 
at the discretion of the load 
authority, which could decide 
the size of the grant until 
today. Now payments are 
determined by nationally set 
figures: for example £65 for a 
single bed and mattress, £150 
for a cooker and £30 for a 
heater. 

Under the new regulations, 
no one may receive a grant if 
he or she has bad one of the 
same item in the past three 
yearn, and payments are re< 
stricted to the physically and 
mentally disabled, the chroni- 
cally side and pensioners.

Sun’s sex 
survey was 
insensitive 

It was “grossly insensitive” 
of The Sun newspaper to 
publish a sex survey which 
included references to female 
fantasies of being raped on the 
same day that it carried a front 
page picture of a rape victim, 
the Press Council said today. 
But a complaint against the 
paper was not upheld. 

Mr Steven Bridge, of Bex- 
ley, Kent, complained that it 
was irresponsible to publish a 
“dubious” sex survey in a 
week Tn which nationwide 
attention was given to the 
victims of rape. 

In a three-page spread on 
the “Great 1986 Sex Survey”, 
Roslyn Grose, a reporter, 
listed the top six women's 
sexual fantasies, the third of 
which was that many dreamt 
of being taken by force. The 
survey was in the same issue 
asa partly disguised front page 
photograph of a vicar's daugh- 
ter who had been raped. 

Mr Thomas Crone, the 
newspaper’s deputy legal man- 
ager, said the survey’s findings 
were honestly reported and 
the idea of being taken by 
force was given minimal 
prominence. The survey’s 
publication date was fixed 
before it was known that there 
would be a front page rape 
story. 

In its adjudication the Press 
Council said the decision to 
publish the survey “lay within 
the editor’s discretion”. 


Electronic syster 
to detect divers 

By Rodney Cowton, Defence Correspondent 


Several defence ministries 
are looking at new British 
electronic systems for protect- 
ing naval bases and coastal 
installations from attack by 
divers and small submersible 
vessels. 

There is concern that sub- 
marine bases, harbours, 
nuclear power stations located 
on the coast, and oil plat- 
forms, could be vulnerable 
targets for attack by terrorists 
or enemy special forces. 

Key military installations 
will already have sensors 
which ensure that hostile sub- 
marines are detected if they 
try to approach, but there is 
concern about the damage 
that might be done by one or 
two swimmers carrying explo- 
sives if they evaded the exist- 
ing defences. 

rlessey Naval Systems, 
based at Templecombe in 
Somerset, has developed a 
swimmer detection system 
which, it is claimed, can detect 
swimmers at twice the range 
of which other systems ar 
capable, and with a very low 
rate of false alarms. 

Plessey refused to discuss 
who might buy the system 
beyond saying that six coun- 
tries were looking at iL The. 
British Ministry of Defence 
said that it would never 
discuss security matters. 

However Exercise Brave 


Defender, which tried last 
September to counter sup- 
posed assaults on British in- 
stallations . by Russian 
Spelsnaz special forces, 
brought expressions of con- 
cern from naval sources about 
Britain's ability to keep out 
enemy divers, and it would be 
surprising if the ministry were 
noi seeking to improve its 
detection systems. 

It is thought that Marconi, 
Smiths Industries, Dowty and 
Ulvertech are also involved in 
marketing systems. 

The kind of approach now 
being considered would pro- 
vide several lines of detection 
system, the most distant of 
which might be 30 miles 
offshore, to detect relatively 
large vessels, and could in- 
volve the use of magnetic loop 
sensors. 

Goser in on the sealed 
would be sonars with overlap- 
ping fields, for finding small 
submersible vessels, or even 
smaller vehicles carrying a 
single swimmer. 

The last line, close inshore, 
could be a sonar pulse which 
on striking a swimmer is 
reflected back on to a mirror. 
It is claimed that this system 
gives ranges of several hun- 
dred yards, allowing at least 
five minutes fordefenoe forces I 
to counter an intruder. ' i 


More drug 
cases ‘will 
be fought’ 

By Stewart Tendler 
Crime Reporter 


New legislation to con- 
fiscate the assets of drug 
traffickers could lead to more 
contested, expensive court 
cases, according to a new 
bulletin on drug-problems. 

Writing in Drnglink, pub- 
lished today by the Institute 
for the Study of Drug Depen- 
dence, Miss Jane Goodsir, co- 
ordinator for the charity. 
Release, forecasts a rise in not- 
guOty pleas as the stakes 
involved are heightened by the 
confiscation powers, particu- 
larly for small dealers. 

The Drug Trafficking Of- 
fences Bill allows for confisca- 
tion on conviction. The crown 
conrts will have the power to 
assume that everything the 
trafficker has and has had 
over the prerioas six years 
came from drags. . 

Release, which advises 
defendants in drag cases, finds 
“police pitching the signifi- 
cance and scale of drugs too 
high, and defendants whose 
cases could have been dis- 
posed of quickly and qnietiy 
plead not guilty as a result”. 

The legislation means that 
the court can be provided with 
a statement on the value to file 
defendant of (he proceeds of 
drags trafficking, giving police 
“a direct inflnence on sentenc- 
ing levels”. Miss Goodsir 
says.

The lsradis yesterday laun- 
ched their second air raid in a 
month- '-on Palestinian camps 
outside Sidon, sending jets on 
a seven-minute rocket and 
bombing attack against build- 
ings in the Em Hdwe and 
Miefa Mieh districts of the 
dty. According to eyewit- 
nesses, Israeli helicopters also 
took part in .the- raid while 
Israel] gunboats patrolled 
offshore. 

The Israelis said later that 
they had attacked targets 
belonging to Mr Yassir 
Arafat's Fatah Palestinian 
guerrillas and also to Abu 
Moussa's pro-Syrian PLO Ac- 
tion. Clouds of black smoke 
hung over the camps during 
. the afternoon, but there weir, 
no immediate reports from 
Sidon to confirm the targets of 
the raids. Local hospitals said 
that at least five wounded 
were brought to emergency 
operating rooms after the 
attacks, which started at 330 
pm. 

The raids came at the end of 
a violent day in Lebanon. All 


morning, Christian militias in 
east Beirut had fought each 
other in the city streets and on 
the coastal highway to the 
north, as Phaiangists staged a 
revolt to topple the anti- 
Syrian commander of t 
“Lebanese Forces’* militia, a 
group which nominally in- 
dudes the Phalange. 

By dusk. Samir Geagea was 
reported to have fled north to 
his headquarters in the old 
Phoenician town of Bybios, 
while Maroon Mashalani, the 
Pbalangist commander in the 
suburb of Fum eLShefoak, was 
ready to take over Mr 
Geagea's former barracks at 
Karan tina, near the Beirut 
port. 

It was Mr Geagea who 
himself ted a mutiny against 
Hie Hobeika, the pro-Syrian 
Pbalangist leader, in January 
this year, but it was unclear 
last mght what role the Syrians 
had had in restoring the status 
quo. Certainly they ore not 
going to object to what is for 
them a fortunate torn of 
events.

.11- 1-' 


Beirut — It began in the 
usual way. A dean-shaven 
young roan in a striped shirt 
and brown trousers knocked 
politely on the door of a 
Western news agency in Bei- 
rut, said ' k marhaba m (hello) 
and laid a plain envelope on 
the table nearest die door. He 
left withont speaking again, 
dimbed into a red Volkswagen 
Golf and drove away (Robert 
Fisk writes). - 

In the envelope was a single 
typed sheet of paper ami, 
attached to it, a Mack and 
white photograph of a bearded 
American hostage, David 
Jacobsen, the Director of the 
American University Hospital 
in Beirut In the picture, Mr 
Jacobsen — ' who was kid- 
napped in May last year — 
looked tired and distracted. 

The letter was equally pess- 
imistic in tone. 

Islamic Jihad, it -said, re- 
jected those whir issued “re- 
peated pnUkhy pleas” on 
behalf of the three American, 
hostages it holds. It com- 
plained bitterly that the IIS 
Secretary of State, Mr George 
Shultz, should have described 
“the defenders of freedom and 
Ishun as murderer* and 
criminals”. . 

The first reference appeared 
to be directed towards. Mr 
Terry Waite, the Archbishop . 
of Canterbury’s envoy, who 
twice last week appealed to die 
kidnappers to invite him hack 
to Beirut to negotiate die 
hostages’ release. 


Islamic Jihad said the hos- 
tages — Mr Jacobsen, Mr 
Terry Anderson, the Asso- 
ciated Press bureau chief in 
Beirut, and Mr Thomas 
Sutherland, the Acting Dean 
of Agricult ure at the American 
University in Beirut — would 
shortly be permitted to write a 
letter. 

“The hostages have a po- 
sition (sic) towards what 
Shultz has said and we shall 
declare this position in a letter 
from the hostages to the 
American people fet the near 
future. And to all those trying 
to solve the case of die 
bostages~we say; ‘Yon per- 
fectly know our demands and 
bow they can be. met So why 
don't yon take a categoric step 
towards a solution?' * 

Islamic Jihad has been 
demanding the release of 17 
Lebanese convicted in Kuwait 
.for bombing the French and 
US embassies therein 1983. 

' In east Beirut* meanwhile, a 
small, privately-owned Chris- 
tian news agency, claimed that 
Mr Anderson was 111, and that 
a leading Lebanese “notable*' 
(who was unidentified) who 
maintains contact with the 
captors, had seen Mr Ander- 
son sick in bed. The “Central 
INfonnadon Agency,” how- 
ever, is . not considered a 
reliable source of information 
on die hostages- who are, in 
any case, believed to be held in 
the Muslim western sector of 
Beirut, not the east -

Officials careful to kill speculation that reforms may foe imminent 


Kaunda 
hits out 
at West 

Lusaka (Reuter) — Presi- 
dent Kaunda of Zambia yes- 
terday accused Western 
leaders of poisoning race rela- 
tions throughout southern Af- 
rica by supporting South 
Africa. 

Western support for apart- 
heid was also to blame for 
South African trade reprisals 
against Zambia, which were 
likely to have a serious impact 
on its deeply troubled econ- 
omy. he said. 

South Africa had been send- 
ing spies into Zambia and 
neighbouring black states. 
Four white South Africans 
and one black were being held 
after having confessed to be- 
ing spies and saboteurs, he 
said, but he did not believe 
stories that foreigners de- 
tained in recent weeks had 
been seriously mistreated in 
prison. 

Dr Kaunda said he did not 
know of any such cases but if 
this had happened the culprits 
would be punished. 

.President Reagan, Mrs Mar- 
garet Thatcher and ' other 
Western leaders were “poison- 
ing our otherwise happy racial 
atmosphere” in Zambia, Zim-. 
babwe and .elsewhere with 
their support for the Pretoria. 

Dr Kaunda indicated that 
Zambia was not likely to cut 
its air links with South Africa 
soon. ' - 

“That decision will be im- 
plemented at the appropriate 
time,” when Zambia bad co- 
ordinated plans with other 
Commonwealth countries, the 
United Stales and the Euro- 
pean Community. 

Zambia-Airways and South 
African Airways operate a ■ 
total of eight flights a week

nesburg. .... 


Botha convenes rare party 
congress to ‘take stock’ 


From Michael Hornsby, Johannesburg 


Zulu leader, and Mr Sam 
Moisuenyane, president of the 

President Botha of South 
Africa opens a rare federal 
congress of bis National Party 
in Durban tomorrow night as 
the Government prepares for 
economic war with its black- 
ruled neighbours and its most 
important trading partners in 
the Western world. 

There have been only two of 
these congresses, which bring 
together party officials and 
delegates from all four prov- 
inces. in the past 25 years. 
They are usually convened to 
endorse some important cha- 
nge of policy or constitutional 
innovation. 

The last was in Bloem- 
fontein in 1982. It gave its 
blessing to the admission of 
ibe Indian and Coloured 
minorities to a segregated bi- 
cameral parliament shared 
with whites, a reform ap- 
proved by two out of three 
voters, at a whites-only 
referendum in November the 
following year. 

This time, however, the 
congress, overshadowed by 
the. wave of economic sanc- 
tions ‘That seems about- to 
break over South Africa, is 
more likely to provide an 
occasion fora mass wallowing 
in xenophobia and appeals for 
unity and loyalty in the face of 
external pressure. 

Party officials have been ax 
pains to pour cold water on 
press talk of dramatic an- 
nouncements at the congress, 
describing it as “a stock-taking 
exercise” chiefly to consoli- 
date support for reforms al- 
ready carried out rather than 
to unveil plans for the future. 

This low-key approach is 
explained partly by a desire to 


avoid a repetition of events a 
year ago. when expectations 
raised by two weeks of fever- 
ish speculation about im- 
minent far-reaching reforms 
were dashed brutally by Mr 
Botha in a speech to a 
provincial party congress, also 
in Durban. 

The anti-dimactic effect of 
the speech stimulated a run on 
the rand and prompted sev- 
eral American banks to call in 
short-term loans to Pretoria, a 
shock from which the cur- 


Clifford Longley on 
apartheid, page 14 

renev, and the economy in 
general, have never recovered. 

Observers both here and 
abroad are hoping, none the 
less, that this week's congress 
will shed more light on the 
Government's intentions on 
several key questions; . 

• The National Statutory 
Council: this advisory forum 
for negotiation with black 
leaders about the future 
constitution is the only tan- 
gible concession Mr Botha has 
made to blacks' demands fora 
say in .government. 

In his dismissive farewell 
message last month to Sir 
Geoffrey Howe,, the Foreign 
Secretary, Mr Botha boasted 
that, even without Mr Nelson 
Mandela of the African Na- 
tional Congress, he had plenty 
of “authentic and represent- 
ative” black leaders with 
whom to' negotiate. 

So far. however, no black 
leader of any substance has 
agreed to sit on the proposed 
council. Il has been rejected, 
for example, by Chief Gatsha. 


Buthelezi. the conservative 
National African Federated 
Chamber of Commerce. 

Much less well known 
abroad than Chief Buthelezi. 
Mr Moisuenyane’s organ- 
ization represents some 15.- 
000 black businessmen, the 
core of the emerging mer- 
cantile black middle-class 
which according to the theo- 
reticians in Pretoria is sup- 
posed to have most to gain 
from oo-operating with the 
Government. 

If he wishes to breathe any 
life into the council. Mr Botha 
will have to produce some 
powerful new arguments this 
week in Durban on why men 
such as Chief Buthelezi and 
Mr Moisuenyane should re- 
consider their position. 

• Mr Mandela: Chief Buthe- 
lezi's main condition for tak- 
ing part in the council is the 
unconditional release from 
jail of Mr Mandela. Having so 
recently and so firmly rejected 
this very same demand from 
Sir Geoffrey, he has little 
room for manoeuvre here. 

• Group Areas Act some 
discussion at the congress on 
proposals for relaxing the 
basic law enforcing separate 
residential areas is possible, 
but no firm decisions are 
expected because a report on 
the subject is still awaited 
from the President's Council. 

• General election: there has 
been speculation periodically 
that Mr Botha might set a date 
for a general election, at least 
to the white House of Par- 
liament The rationale would 
be that this would be a good 
lime to cut the ground from 
under extreme right-wing 
parties. 


Rent strike 
township 
evictions 

From Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 

.Armed officials, backed by 
police, moved into black town- 
ships near the Vaal River, 
some 40 miles south of 
Johannesburg, at the weekend 
and began evicting dozens of 
residents at gunpoint from 
their homes for failure to pay 

rent. 

Evictions were reported 
from the townships of Seb- 
okeng. Evaton and Boipatong 
which, with Shaipeville, were 
the scene of riots in Septem- 
ber, 1984, provoked by threat- 
ened rent increases. 

The violence quickly spread 
to other parts of the country, 
taking die form of a general 
rejection of government-spon- 
sored adminis trative stru- 
ctures. Over the past two 
years, more than 2,000 people, 
nearly all black, have been 
killed in dashes with the 
police and internecine fending 
within the black community. 

Many residents of the Vaal 
River townships have not paid 
rent since the end of 1984, 
denying the local authorities 
some 20 million rand (£53 
million) in revenue. 

In Soweto on Saturday, the 
police used teargas to disperse 
a crowd of some 2,000 blades 
attending a funeral for three 
youths who were abducted last 
week by unknown men and 
whose corpses were later 
found lying on wasteland. 

Meanwhile, lawyers for the 
owners of South Africa's main 
English-language newspapers 
will argue in the Natal division 
of the Supreme Court today 
that restrictions imposed on 
the press under the state of 
emergency shonld be declared 
invalid.

Eta contact 
denied 
by Madrid 

From Richard Wigg 
Madrid 

The Spanish Interior Min- 
istry has denied there were 
contacts earlier this year be- 
tween the Government and 
Serlor Domingo Iturbe, prin- 
cipal leader of Eta, the Basque 
separatist organization, before 
France expelled him last 
month to Gabon. 

Sedor Julidn San cristobaL. 
Director of State Security at 
the Ministry, denied a detailed 
report in El Pais yesterday. 
The often well-informed Ma- 
drid daily said that between 
March and last month two sets 
of contacts were going on with 
the 42-year-old leader of Eia]s 
military .wing. One was initi- 
ated by Madrid through an 
intermediary, and the second 
was between the Basque 
Nationalisi Party and the 
Basque regional Government 
and Eta, at the latter's 
initiative: 

The denial was only to be 
expected. Setter San Cristobal 
maintained that the only mat- 
ter ever put to Setter Iturbe 
was an oner two years ago to 
negotiate on. when and where 
the Basque separatists would 
give up their armed. struggle. 
There was ho response. 

Sources -dose to the Basque 
Government, however, have 
publicly accused Madrid of 
disrupting promising signs of 
a dialogue by doing nothing to 
prevent the Eta leader’s 
deportation by France. Seiior 
Xabier Aizallus, chairman of 
the Basque Nationalist Party. ‘ 
accused Madrid last week of 
missing opportunities to seek 
a negotiated settlement. 

A Socialist Party leader in 
the Basque region last week 
rejected a claim that Madrid 
had aborted the possibility of 
such negotiations, insisting 
that the French move had 
been entirely uncoordinated 
with Madrid. 

Sehor Felipe Gonzilez, the 
Spanish. Prime Minister, has 
repeatedly, insisted in. public 
that there (fan be no political 
negotiations with terrorists. .

Shcharansky 
leads protest 
on emigration 

Jerusalem (Reuter) — Mr 
Anatoly Shcharansky. the for- 
mer Soviet dissident, led a 
rally yesterday outside the 
office of the Prime Minister, 
Mr Shimon Peres, urging Is- 
rael to abandon planned talks 
unless Moscow stepped up 
Jewish emigration. 

He told about 1 50 protesters 
that an estimated 400,000 
Jews wanted to leave the 
Soviet Union. Only 31 were 
allowed to go last month, 
according to the International 
Committee for Migration. 

At Moscow's initiative, 
Russian and IsraeG officials 
are to meet in Helsinki on 
August 1 8 in their first official 
talks since the Soviet Union 
severed relations over the Six-. 
Day War in 1967. 

Mr Shcharansky, who was 
freed in an East- West prisoner 
exchange in February after 
eight years m a Soviet labour 
camp, said that as a condition 
for-the meeting Israel should 
demand a gesture fro m the 
Kremlin towards Jews who 
seek to emigrate. 


Peruvian jets 
raid Amazon 
cocaine bases 

Lima (Reuter) — Peruvian 
security forces backed by two 
squadrons of Air Force jets 
and helicopters yesterday at- 
tacked 12 cocaine-trafficking 
bases in the Amazon jungle, an 
Interior Ministry statement 
said. 

Seftor Abel Salinas, the 
Minister of the Interior, told 
the official news agency that 
the raids marked the first use 
of fighter aircraft In an anti- 
narcotics operation. 

Seftor Salinas said police 
helicopters involved in tiro 
raids were nut by machine- 
gun fire from traffickers but he 
did not say if there were any 
casualties^. 

The Interior Ministry state- 
ment said the jets bombed and 
fired rockets at two of the 
bases and planned to attack 
others later. Helicopters were 
used to raid one of the drag 
bases called “Yellow Earth,” 
it added. 

The Government said four 
of the raided bases had cocaine 
refining equip m en t. 


Optimism on arms control 


From Frederick Bonnart 
Brussels 

A breakthrough in the pro- 
tracted nuclear arms control 
negotiations is expected be- 
fore the end of the year. As 
Nato settles into lower gear for 
the summer, senior officials 
are cautiously optimistic 
about the recent US-Soviet 
exchanges in the sparring in- 
tended to lead to a summit. 

A senior diplomat at Nato, 
emphasizing the fundamental 
difference between present 
and previous proposals, said: 
“The coming year will be 
crucial.” 

In the past the aim had been 
to limit existing and future 
systems, but the present inten- 
tion was to obtain massive 
reductions at one fell swoop. 

The Strategic Arms Limita- 
tion Treaties (Salt 1 and Salt 
2), as well as the Anti-Ballistic 
Missile (ABM) Treaty, had in- 
tended to equalize Soviet and 
American weapons, the diplo- 
mat said. 

Now, according to Dr Rob- 
ert Barker, the chief US nego- 
tiator. for the first time since 


1 956. when Salt started, actual 
reductions are being consid- 
ered seriously and construc- 
tive proposals are being 
discussed. 

The nine-day special ses- 
sion in Geneva of the US- 
Soviet Commission which 
had tried to find a solution to 
the projected abandonment of 
Salt 2 broke up in disagree- 
ment last week. The talks on 
nuclear testing, on which Nato 
was briefed on Friday, have 
failed to reach agreement on 
the verification problem. 

But matters look different at 
the top. where, according to 
another official “a bargain is 
shaping up”. 

This is particularly so for 
space weapons, where Mr 
Gorbachov now appears to 
have accepted continued re- 
search. subject to its being 
confined to laboratories. 

President Reagan, who had 
previously been adamant 
about not using his Strategic 
Defence Initiative (SDI) as a 
“bargaining chip", appears to 
have agreed to a delay in the 
deployment of space weapons. 

Although details of the con- 


tents of the reccm letters 
exchanged by the two leaders 
remain secret, officials have 
intimated that Mr Reagan 
made a positive offer in 
response to Mr Gorbachov’s 
request for an American 
commitment to continued 
adherence to the ABM Treaty 
for 1 5-20 years. 

He proposes to substitute a 
five-year term for the present 
six-month notice required by 
the treaty, followed by two 
more years during which the 
two sides would discuss shar- 
ing techno logv and managing 
deployment of defensive space 
weapons. After that, cither 
would be able to deploy, sub- 
ject to six months' notice. 

On strategic weapons. Mr 
Reagan proposes a 50 per cent 
cut, as opposed to Mr 
Gorbachov's 30 per cent. 

While there is still a consid- 
erable gap in the initial po- 
sitions of both sides, agree- 
ment appears to exist on the 
possibility of trading deep cuts 
in offensive weapons against 
some restraints on SDI re- 
search. 


Doctors give Reagan 
clean MU of health 


Budget vote casts doubt on allied role in SDI 


From Michael Binyon, Washington 


Doctors gave President 
Reagan a dean bill ofhealtbat 
the weekend, announcing that 
tests on his urinary tract 
showed no abnormality or 
evidence, of tumour or any 
other disease (Michael Binyon 
writes). 

“Everything's normal, 
everything’s fine,” Mr Reagan 
said as he left Bethesda Naval 
Hospital after two hours on 
Saturday. 

Mr Burton Smith, the. 
White House urologist, said 
no other urological examina- 
tions were planned. The 
White House refused to say 
what pain or symptoms had 
prompted the tests, which 
were unrelated to Mr Reagan's 
regular check-ups following 
his cancer operation. • 


However. Mr Reagan has a 
history of urinary tract prob- 
lems. including surgery to 
remove 30 sinall stones in 
1967 and tests in 1982 similar 
' to 'those on Saturday: 

Doctors have pointed out 
that such problems are com- 
mon for men in their 70s. 

Saying he felt “great” Mr 
Reagan insisted as he went 
into hospital that he was in no 
danger, and had chosen this 
moment for the routine tests 
because of his busy autumn- 
schedule. 

He also took his drug test 
beforehand so that the an- 
aesthetic would not distort the 
resuIL The rest of his Cabinet 
will take their drug tests,.] 
intended as an example to the 
country, today. ; 


After days of often sharp 
debate, the Senate overwhelm- 
ingly approved a S295 billion 
200 billion) defence budget 
for 1987 which cuts back 
President Reagan's military 
build-up. Including his Strate- 
gic Defence Initiative, and 
may jeopardize the participa- 
tion of Britain and other allies 
in Star Wars. 

The vote came daring a rare 
Saturday session, as the Sen- 
ate tried to complete much 
Important legislation before 
the summer recess begins on 
Friday: By 86 votes to 3, 
senators approved a budget 
that is slightly higher than the 
House version, but cuts some 
$25 billion from Mr Reagan's 
irinal request. 

One of the biggest ents is in 
SDI, reduced from $5.3 brUion 
(0 $3.9 billion. 


An important amendment 
that will raise hackles in 
Europe, especially In Britain 
and West Germany, was a ban 
on awarding lucrative SDI 
contracts to foreign countries. 

Unless the Defence Sec- 
retary can show that snch 
research work “cannot reason- 
ably be performed by a US 
firm,” the Pentagon is in- 
structed to keep the contracts 
at home. 

If this provision is kept in 
the final version of the K1L it 
will severely embarrass the 
Administration hi its attempts ‘ 
to garner allied support for 
SDI with the promise of large- 
scale participation. The am- 
endment does not affect those 
contracts already signed, 
worth a&otrt $25 mulion. 

Senator John Glenn, a 



Senator Glenn: critical of 
contracts for allies, 
mocraf from Ohio, accused 
toe Reagan Administration of 
being like “a kid with a sack of 
.candy” in attempting to win 
friends for SDI by promises of 
partidtmtfon. 

At a time when US univer- 
sities were crying out for help, 


“we're going to curry favour 
with our allies who won't share 
their burdens to begin with, 
and we're going to give than 
our research money.” 

He criticized the proposal to 
“spend billions abroad” to let 
others gain a competitive edge 
over the US in high technol- 
ogy, “and we pay for it” 

West German)' especially 
has agreed to SDI participa- 
tion to gain access to US high 
technology, despite hints that 
little real technology transfer 
wifi be allowed. 

The ban, however, may be 
dropped under Administration 
pressure during the conference 
to reconcile the Senate SOI 
with that of the House, which 
is not yet finished. 

The Administration has in- 
sisted that Congress is en- 
dangering the US defence 
build-up with its budget cots. 
And the Senate's two leading 


military experts, Senate 
Barry Goldwater, an Arizou 
Republican, and Senator Sat 
Nunn, a Georgia Democrat 
said that because of balance* 
budget legislation, the UJ 
faces more than $400 billion ii 
military cuts over the next fiv 
years which, they said, wouh 
create a “crisis for defence”. 

The Senate also approved i

General who planned 
assault on Sikh Golden 
Temple is assassinated 


Lieutenant-General Arun 
Kumar Vaidya. former chief 
of staif of the Indian Army 
and architect of the storming 
of the Sikh Golden Temple of 
Amritsar, was shot dead by 
four clean-sbaveo men in the 
heart of Pune cantonment 
yesterday. 

His wife; Mrs Bhanu Devi, 
was wounded but is said to be 
out of danger. 

The general was driving' 
home with his wife from 
market in Pune, about 100 
miles east of Bombay, when 
the assailants, two on a motor 
cycle and two on a motor 
scooter, drew level with his car 
and Hired at him with auto- 
matic weapons. He was de- 
clared dead on his arrival at a 
military hospital. 

He was hjgb on the hit-list 
of Sikh extremists since Op- 
eration Blue Star at Amritsar 
in i 984, in which their leader, 
Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindran- 
waJe, was killed. 

General Vaidya, aged 60. is 
the most important victim of 
terrorism since Mrs Indira 
Gandhi, the late Prime Min- 
ister, was assassinated by two 
of her Sikh security guards in 
1 984. He and the police were 
warned then by the extremists 
that they would take their 
revenge on him. 

Two days ago newspapers 


From KnJdip Nayar, Delhi 

ran a threatening letter to the 
general on their front pages. 
The Pune police commis- 
sioner had alerted all stations 
and had lightened security 
around him. But there was no 
policeman or security guard 
when he was shot 

The attack came within 24 
hours of the arrest of a feared 
extremist. Manbir Singh

Daunting autumn for Craxi 

Image tarnished 
by coalition deal 

From Peter Nichols, Rome 


Signor Rettino Craxi, the 
Italian Prime Minister, must 
be asking himself on Ms 
holiday whether his deter- 
mination to stay on after his 
record-breaking three consec- 
utive years In the post was 
politically wise. 

The autumn looks politi- 
cally daunting. His last gov- 
ernment fell on June 27 
because of differences within 
the five-party coalition, not 
through the efforts of the 
official opposition. 

Differences remain, even if 
for the moment they are less 
apparent 

The principal one concerned 
who should be Prime Min- 
ster, and that was settled by 
an arrangement imta^which:? 
Signor Cnud,.who is- a Social- . 
1st would hand back the prime 
ministership next spring to a 
Christian Democrat That 
arrangement has been criti- 
dzed. 

Among others,- Senator 
Sandro Pertini, die former 
President said that agree- 
ments on alternating the office 
of Prime Minister should be a 
question for Parliament and 
not for the parties to decide. 

The Christian Democrat 
leadership, moreover, has 
been criticized from its own 
ranks for having gained too. 
little from the foil of the last 
Government 

Members of the Communist 
opposition maintain that the 
Christian Democrats may still 
be tricked out of their torn at 
leading the coalition if, by the 
spring, the political situation 
has deteriorated to the point 
that elections are inevitable. 

Signor Craxi, while in office 
last time, won a reputation for 
a pragmatic approach unusual 
in Italian political affairs and 
for courage as well as a 
generous share of luck. 

At the time that his govern-

From Charles Harrison 
Nairobi 

Two banks and three credit 
institutions have closed here, 
creating panic and uncertainty 
among the new banking ana 
financial institutions which 
have mushroomed in Kenya 
in the past few years. 

Mismanagement and the 
diversion or funds to individ- 
uals and companies linked 
with the directors of some of 
these institutions have been 
Wanted, and President Moi 
has ordered the Central Bank 
to lake over the management 
of institutions where dep- 
ositors’ funds are at risk. 

The President says those 
responsible for mismanage- 
ment will be required to make 
good any losses. 

The first to run into trouble 
was the Rural-Urban Finance 
Corporation, a Kenyan- 
owned building society and 
credit finance operator, whose 
depositors have been trying to 
withdraw their cash for more 
than six months. 

Last month the Continental 
Bank of Kenya and an asso- 
ciated finance house closed 
after the Central Bank with- 
drew overdraft facilities. Last 
week the Union Bank of 
Kenya artf the Jimba Credit 
Corporation closed when the 
Nairobi. Bankers* Gearing 
House refused to accept 
Union Bank cheques. ! 


From M. G .G.PiBai 
Kuala Lumpur 

Less than a week after the 
National Front was returned 
to power in an overwhelming 
electoral 1 victory, it feces an- 
other big financial and politi- 
cal controversy. 

The Malaysian Central 
Bank on Friday froze the 
assets of 23 deposit-taking co- 
operatives. with a total 
membership of 540.000 and 
1.400 million Malaysian dol- 
lars (about £360 million) in 
deposits, after public com- 
plaints. 

Among the 109 directors of 
these co-operatives whose as- 
sets .were frozen and passports 
impounded are two deputy 
ministers, the president and 
secretary-general of the 
Malaysian Trades Union Con- 
gress (MTUQ and several 
newly-elected members of 
Parliament including Mr Tan 
Koon Swan, president of the 
Malaysian Chinese Associ- 
ation (MCA). 

Adding to the official 
embarrassment is the feet that 
many of these co-operatives 
are controlled or managed by 
prominent politicians of the 
ruling coalition. It comes 
amid controversies surround- 
ing a banking and provident 
funds scandal, and another 
over how Mr Daim Zainuddin 
won control of a bank while 
still Minister of Finance. 


Mr Buta Singh, the Home 
-Minister, consulted several 
Cabinet colleagues and put the 
-country on a general aten. 

In a condolence message. 
President Zail Singh said: “It 
is a matter of great disin»$s 
that the cult of violence is 
spreading like a virus. This 
should be condemned by one 
and all, and evil forces spread- 
ing violence should be put 

down with a heavy hand.” 

General Vaidya, who re- 
tired as Army chief on January 
31. was one of India's most 
decorated generals. Commis- 
sioned on January 20. 1945 in 
the armoured corps, he held 
many regimental and staff 
appointments. 

On Operation Blue Star, he 
told a Bombay magazine that 
“a soldier is never told not to 
hit back in case of attack, but 
keeping in view the sanctity of 
the Golden Temple 1 had to 
issue such an order. The 
soldiers were - told not to 
return the fire.” 

Meanwhile, a former Chief 
Minister of Punjab, Mr 
Prakash Singh Badai, and a 
former president of the Sikh 
Gurdwara Prabandhak Com- 
mittee, are being held for 15 
days pending Inal on charges 
of defying an order not to visit 
the areas of Delhi recently 
affected by Sikh riots. 




From Vijftha Yapa 
Colombo 

Shops belonging to Tamils 
were burnt by Muslims in 
Kalmunai in Sri Lanka's East- 
ern Province yesterday, in 
retaliation for the killing of a 
Muslim youth by Tamil 
guerrillas at Kudairuppu on 
Saturday, police sources said. 


Meanwhile, Mrs Sirimavo 
Bandaranaike. leader of the 
main opposition party, the Sri 
Lanka Freedom Party, said 
that Government proposals 
for devolving power through 
provincial councils would di- 
vide the nation further. 

In ah interview with the 
Sinhala-language paper, Sri 


Lanka Decpa, she said the 
Government had no right to 
impose decentralization with- 
out seeking a mandate. 

The second round of .talks 
between the Sri Lanka Gov- 
ernment and the moderate 
Tamil United Liberation 
Front will be held in Colombo 
next Saturday. 


Hungarian 
writer 
banned for 
US essays 

Budapest (AP) — Hungary 
has banned works by a noted 
writer and playwright Istvan 
Csurka. after his essays were 
published in America, and has 
suspended a literary journal 
for political reasons, Hungar- 
ian newspapers say. 

The deputy Minister of 
Culture. Mr Gyoigy Vajda. 
told the daily Magyar Semza 
that Mr Csurka, evading rules 
on Hungarians publishing 
abroad, had had essays 
brought out by an unnamed 
New Vork publisher. 

Mr Vajda said that **hts 
statements and lectures made 
abroad” as well as the US 
essays "violate Hungary's in- 
terests. present a distorted 
picture of public life here, of 
the past 30 years in this 
nation's history”. 

An investigation was under 
way. he added, against the 
editorial board of the sus- 
pended magazine. Tiszatdj, 
who had "committed a whole 
series of errors with regard to 
editing policy, and to the 
democratic and responsible 
Workshop' practice". 

A Hungarian intellectual in 
Vienna believes that the edi- 
tors are being punished for 
publishing poems by Gaspar 
Nagy, dismissed in 1984 as 
secretary of the Writers’ 
Union, and by Sandor Csoori. 
a writer who has had many 
problems with authorities. 


unprecedented length of time. 

There were also signs of 
economic .expansion aided by 
lower oil prices and the weaker 
dollar. 

But the 34 days between his 
two governments had a tar- 
nishing effect. The series of 
parliamentary ambushes that 
finally bmght him down had 
made stability look a more 
fragile growth. 

The fact that the political 
batik only concerned who 
should lead the coalition and 
not what its policies should be 
helped to discredit the whole 
manoeuvre in die eyes of the 
public. 

Few, if any, governments 

Jrave feen formed under the 

shadow of so bad a press. The; 
poHtimns have been severely 
taken to task for contacting 
power games which had no 
direct contact with the coun- 
try's requirements, amidst 
sceptical dismay from the 
public. 

Signor Craxi has shown 
that he can respond to the 
requirements of public opin- 
ion, especially inhis attempts 
to provide a basis for political 
stability and to give the exec- 
utive more power over an 
unwieldy parliamentary set- 
up. 

■ He is also determined to 
seek a redaction in the use of 
the secret vote in Parliament, 
which led his last government 
to suffer so many defeats when 
he was least expecting dis- 
loyally from his own coalition 
ranks. 

After the gruelling mara- 
thon of his first administra- 
tion, Signor Craxi mast now 
show whether the appearance 
of stability he brought was a 
happy but passing phase, or 
whether Italy is now set on a 
long-term course of healthy 
development, . 

But first he must cancel the 
impression of a serious relapse 
given to the public by the 
events of the past few weeks.

Nuclear ban leads to isolation 


Lange sees loss 

ties 



From Richard Long, Sara, Fqi 


Mr David Lange, the New 
Zealand . Prime Minister, ex- 
pects the United States and 
Australia- -to take joint action 
today to isolate New Zealand 
further as a result of his 
Government's ban on nuclear 
warship visits. 

Looking ahead last night to 
today's meeting in San Fran- 
cisco between Pat Bill Hayden, 
Australia's Foreign Affairs 
Minister, and ‘ Mr George 
Shultz, the US Secretary of 
State. Mr Lange predicted that 
the US would tty to drive a 
wedge between Australia and 
New Zealand on defence 
issues. 

This would come at a time 
when New Zealand would 
need to be more dependent on 
Australia For bilateral defence 
exercises, he said. 

Mr Lange, speaking in Suva, 
where he is attending a meet- 
ing of the South Pacific Fo- 
rum. said he was not 
perturbed about the prospect, 
and it would not change his 
Government's anti-nuclear 
policies. He says be will expect 
Australia to act to maintain its 
important defence links with 
Washington. 

The Hayden -Shultz talks 
have replaced the full Anzus 
Council talks which also in- 
cluded New Zealand before 
Mr Lange's Government bar- 
red nuclear-capable warships. 
Mr Shultz has since declared 
New Zealand and the United 
Stales to have parted 
company. 

Speaking after the weekend 
session of ibe Forum here. Mr 
Lange said New Zealand had ' 
been rapped over the knuckles 
by Washington since February 
1985. when it banned the visit 



Mr Lange: no doubt about 
Australia's response. . 


of the AJSS Buchanan, which 
-Spmked the Anzus row. 

“I would think that there is 
a possibility that we would, m 
a bilateral sense, have 
greater dependence on Austra- 
lia for military exercising. It is 
also conceivable that the 
United States, depending on 
what view it took of New 
Zealand after San Francisco, 
could well put conditions on 
Australia which could affect or 
compromise the ability of 
Australia to have a military 
relationship with us. 

"I don't have any doubt at 
all as to wbat the responsible 
Australian response to that 
would be. 

■ "It is pdfocily- plain to me 
that Australia sees Hs relation- 
ship with the United States 
militarily as bring more im- 
portant than hs relationship 
with New Zealand militarily. 
That is the simple fact.” 

Mr Lange said he would 
advise Australia in ibis case 
not to jeopardize its relation- 
ship with Washington "be- 
cause it is ridiculous to think 
that Australia would com- 
promise its security interests 
to accommodate New Zea- 
land.” 

• Confidence on fishing offer: 
Meanwhile, after the talks 
between-the 13 leaders of the 
independent nations of the 
South Pacific. Mr Lange said 
there was a new confidence 
that Washington would come 
up with a satisfactory offer for 
fishing rights when talks re- 
sume later this year. . 

This follows years of irrita- 
tion over the activities of 
American tuna fishermen in 
the SouthTacifk. 

The tunamen claim the 
right to. pursue migratory tuna 
into exclusive economic zone 
waters, and their exercise of 
thisaileged right has been seen 
by Australia and New Zealand 
to be encouraging the island 
nations to enter fishing deals 
whh the.Sovjei Union. 

. Corrective action from 
Washington has been slow in 
coming But Mr Lange, speak- 
ing . after the Forum dis- 
cussion, said the US 
Government had come, to 
grips -with the fundamental 
problem "that it cannot allow 
its foreign policy interests to 
be dictated by the tuna boats 
association.” 1 .

Mongolia pact boosts 
Sino-Soviet thaw 


From David Bona via, Hong Kong 


The signing of a new con- 
sular agreement between 
China and the Mongolian 
People’s Republic, announced 
at the weekend, marks a 
significant step ' forward in 
Sino-Soviet relations. 

Mongolia, though theoreti- 
cally an independent country, 
is tinder total Soviet political 
control and China has long 
complained that Soviet troops 
and missiles are 'stationed 
there to intimidate her. The 
Soviet leadership bos recently 
indicated, however, that it 
may be prepared to withdraw 
some of its forces from Mon- 
golia. as demanded by Peking. 

This is aO part of a new 
Soviet diplomatic . offensive 
aimed at persuading China 
that she is not under threat 
from the- Soviet ride. Mr 
Gorbachov has even said that 
there might be a renewal of 
negotiations on the disputed 
river frontier between the two 
countries, where there 
clashes in 1969. 


Moscow is apparently pre- 
pared to hold talks on the 
definition of the frontier as 
running down the median 
course of the Ussuri River, 
where fighting took place in 
March 1969, instead of along 
the Chinese bank, as insisted 
hitherto by the Russians.. 


This could lead to other 
readjustments concerning dis- 
puted borders along the Amur 
River and in central Asia, 
where there were also clashes 
in 1969. 


a move would be a 
tenia] reversal of the 
Soviet position. Moscow in 
the past has ruled out any 
territorial claims by its 
neighbours. 


Top US 
arms team

Combined with the an- 
nounced withdrawal of a 
considerable number of troops 
from Afghanistan, the Soviet 
Union is dearly doing its best 
to improve its relations with 
China. 


Shoppers need a ticket to buy 


Peking (Renter) — A shop in 
Tianjin, south-east of Peking, 
has proved so popular that the 
crush of shoppers broke down 
the staircase despite then- 
needing to buy tickets to get in. 

The China Daily's Business 


Weekly said yesterday that 
the Tianjin International 
Market was popular because it 
sold scarce high-quality dom- 
estic and imported goods, 
iududug Items from more 
than 200 foreign firms. 


Moscow (Reuter) — A group 
of American negotiators led 
6y Mr Paul Nitze. President 
Reagan's special adviser on 
arms control, arrived here 
yesterday for discussions on 
nuclear and space weapons 
which could help to pave the 
way for a new superpower 
summit 

Tass said that the talks, 
starting today, were part of the 
preparations for a meeting 
between the Soviet Foreign 
Minister, Mr Eduard Shev- 
ardnadze, and the US Sec- 
retary of State. Mr George 
Shultz, in Washington next 
month. 

Mr Shultz and Mr Shev- 
ardnadze will be working to- 
wards a second summit 
meeting between President 
Reagan and Mr Gorbachov, 
which is due later this year in 
accordance with the under- 
standing reached when they 
met in Geneva last year. 

However, Mr Shultz, speak- 
ing last week, seemed less 
certain that the two leaders 
would meet this year, saying 
that Mr Nitze's mission was to 
help to get the next round of 
Geneva arms talks off to a 
quick start. 

Diplomats note that Wash- 
ington has sent a very high- 
level team, including its three 
negotiators at Geneva. 


Western investors find the 


open-door policy jammed 


In the firs of two articles on 
China's economic situation. 
Robert Grieves reports from 
Peking on the difficulties be, set- 
ling some joint ventures with 
Western companies. 


"Because you are an old 
friend, we are awarding you a 
high priority project,” the 
spokesman for a Chinese 
industrial group recently told 
an American banker in Pe- 
king. "We want you to finance 
what will be a very profitable 
enterprise.” 


nese partners — are struggling 
to break even, and why the 
Chinese economy, hailed by 
Peking as the locomotive that 
drives Mr Deng Xiaoping's 
political reforms, faces serious 
problems. 


The banker leaned forward 
with interest in his chair. 

"What we would like you to 
consider." the Chinese spok- 
esman continued, "is a factory 
that will produce tyres exclu- 
sively for aMC Beijing Jeep.” 

“1 could not believe h." the 
banker recalled. "They appar- 
ently had not heard about the 
problems AMC Beijing Jeep 

were having.” 

It is a joint venture between 
American Motors Corpora- 
tion and the China National 
Automotive Industry Corp- 
oration. At the time of the 
banker's meeting with the 
Chinese group, the American 
side of the venture, now in its 
fourth year, had just appealed 
to Mr Zhao Ziyang. the Chi- 
nese Prime Minister, to order 
its Chinese partners to live up 
to their contractual obliga- 
tions to provide spore pans 
and foreign exchange so that 
the factory could continue 
operating. 


Seven years after Mr Deng. 
China's cider statesman, and 
his supporters initiated the 
open-door policy, many eco- 
nomic managers are still 
dogmatically inflexible, the 
work force remains largely 
unskilled, the costs of doing 
business have rocketed, and 
the counted-on heavy infusion 
of foreign investment has yet 
to happen. 


In the case of AMC Beijing 
Jeep, the Americans seem to 
have been unprepared for the 


central hank, curbed foreign 
exchange expenditures m 
1985 in an effort to halt the 
drain on hard currency re- 
serves and the runaway 
growth rate of 23 per cent in 
the first six months of the 
year. 

But unlike the economic 
slowdown of 1980-1981, after 
China had drained its foreign 
exchange reserves to buy turn- 
key plants that it could not 
operate, the slowdown of \ 986 
may not be followed by an- 
other period of expansion. 

Western economists here 
say this is because most of the 
slack in agricultural produc- 
tion has been taken up. and 


the productivity remaining to 
lina’s indu 


China’s 

economy 

Part 1 


difficulties they met. They 
seem not to have realized that 
their Chinese partners might 
want to hoard foreign ex- 
change. or that the Chinese car 
industry might view a foreign 
joint venture as competition 
that must be eliminated. 


AMC Beijing Jeep ul- 
timately won its "quick fix” 
cash infasion, but it may have 
lost the war. Several Chinese 
middle-managers reportedly 
lost so much face over the 
venture's well-publicized 
problems that they may never 
again co-operate with iL 


its problems illustrate why 
Western investors have sour- 
ed on China, why the 
country's 2,645 equity joint 
ventures — most of them with 
Hong Kong or overseas Chi- 


Nor were they prepared for 
the high cost of doing business 
in China. For example, cor- 
porate import duties for office 
supplies and other items av- 
erage about 300 per cent The 
rental for an office suite in 
Peking's Great Wall Hotel 
costs £S5.000 a year. 

The slowdown in state for- 
eign exchange spending must 
be considered a key cause of 
the West’s disappointment in 
the Chinese market. Business 
possibilities have been se- 
verely curtailed as a result. 

After spending billions of 
yuan in foreign exchange to 
import such consumer items 
as video cassettes, refrig- 
erators and Japanese cats, the 
People's Bank of China, its 


be tapped in China’s indus- 
trial sector must be wrung out 
at great expense in both the 
commitment of resources and 
of labour. 

China's State Statistical Bu- 
reau recently painted a mixed 
picture of the economy in the 
first half of 1986. The good 
news was that industrial out- 
put in the private sector had 
increased by 18.4 per cent, 
while grain production, which 
had dropped 7 per cent in 
1 985, was up 3.5 pa* cent to 92 
million tonnes. Consumer 
prices had risen by only 5.5 
per cent, as against 8.6 per 
cent in J 9S5. 

The bad news was that 
China's trade deficit, which 
totalled S6.4 billion (£4.3 bil- 
lion) in the first half of 1986, 
was predicted by officials here 
to grow worse by the end of 
the year. Last year, China's 
trade deficit was more than 
$14 billion. 


Most worrying for Peking 
has been the fall 


in foreign 
investment. Last year, invest- 
ment commitments to China 
totalled S5.85 billion, of which 
Si billion was spent In the 
first six months of 1986 
commitments have totalled 
only $1.24 billion. 20 per cent 
lower than in the same period 
last year. 

Tomorrow: Political 
implications 


Many deals agreed, fewer started 


From 1979 to 1986 in China, 2,645 equity 
joint ventures have been branched, 4,075 
contractual joint ventures and 130 wholly- 
owned foreign subsidiaries, the Ministry of 
Foreign Economic Relations and Trade said. 

Only about a third of the equity joint 
ventures (where a joint company is formed) 
have began operations, but the Chinese Hahn 
that 90 percent are profitable. 

At the beginning of 1986 the level of foreign 
investment agreed to by overseas companies 
since 1979 was $16 billion (£1041 billion), but 
only $4.6 billion of this had actually been 


invested. According to Mr Lin Xiangdong, Che 
ministry's deputy director, foreign investment 
in the first half of 1986 was $1 24 billion, a 
fifth down on the same period last year. 

About 80 per cent of the investment so far 
has been from Hong Kong, and most has been 
in light industry, textiles and hotels. Little has 
yet gone into the high technology, energy and 
transport projects China needs. 

The largest single order obtained by Britain 
in China, valued at £250 million, was for part 
of the Daya Bay nuclear power station, 
awarded to die General Electric Company.

SPECTRUM 


Baby-boomers: first of a three-part series about the people raised on orange juice and flower power 


Peter Pan and the mid-life crisis 


Graham PMoot 


Children of the population boom after the 
Second World War grew up amid huge 
social changes. They have found it hard to 
shake off their teenage ideals and face 


up to middle age, as Steve Turner discovers 


W hen John Haney 
/37). Chris Honey 
(39) and Scon Ab- 
bott (40) set about 
creating a second set 
of question cards for Trivial Pur- 
suiL the enormously successful 
board game which they invented, 
they decided to make it for -people 
like" us”. And people like the three 
Canadians, it turned out. were -the 
baby-boom generation . . .people 
who grew- up with the Beatles and 
television." 

These were people who could tell 
you how many series of Monty 
Python were made, which British 
folk singer had a guitar labelled 
“This machine kills”, and Kookie 
Byrnes’s trademark act of vanity 
on 77 Sunset Strip* The Baby 
Boomer version of the game, 
launched in Britain last October, 
has since sold almost 170.000 
copies at about £20 a set. 

To be a baby-boomer is to belong 
to that generation bom when 
Johnny came marching home at 
the end of the Second World War. 
Four and a half million troops were 
demobilized, and between 1946 
and I q 52 more than five million 
children were bom in England and 
Wales, the birth rate reaching an 
unprecedented 20.5 per thousand 
of the population in 1947. falling 
slowly to a more comfortable 15.3 
in 1952. 

Right from the beginning, the 
baby-boom generation found itself 
on the cutting edge of social 
change. Its schooling was im- 
proved by the 1944 Education Acu 
the newly-created Welfare State 
made sure it grew strong on orange 
juice, cod liver oil and fresh milk, 
and the end of rationing in 1956 
meant that the new consumer 
society was ready and running for 
its teenage years. 

Professor Arthur Marwick, au- 
thor of British Society Since 1945 . 
observes; "Because there were 
more of them, they were more 
influential and they became a 
market worth aiming at. They were 
healthier and filter. They were 
sexier because with rising living 
standards, people become more 
sexually active. They were also 
more independent.’’ 

Their new economic power and 
better education enabled them to 
install their own heroes, to create 
their own culture and force social 
change. In a 1957 magazine article. 
Colin Maclnncs noted: “Today, 
youth has money and teenagers 
have become a power." and 
Marwick, professor of history at 
the Open University, confirms his 
prescience: "The underpinning of 
all social control is older people 
telling younger people what to do. 
By 1957 and 1958. young people 
were no longer prepared to be told 
what to do and to be sold their 
parents' fashions.” 


,4s is recognized by Trivial 
Pursuit a vital unifying factor for 
baby-boomers is that they all spent 
pan of their adolescence in the 
Sixties — when, besides being 
observers of the son of people 
David Bailey photographed, they 
themselves had a starring role. 
Their choices of skin length, 
trouser width, hairstyle and drug 
became front-page news. 

The old ideas of children being 
seen and not heard had gone 
forever. Hamblett and Deverson's 
Generation X. published in 1964. 
consisted of extracts from vox-pop 
interviews with people in their 
teens and early twenties. Three 
years later. World In Action sol- 
emnly filmed Mick Jogger of the 
Roiling Stones being quizzed by a 
bishop, a lord, a Jesuit priest and 
the editor of The Times . “When 
people are interested in you. it 
gives you a sense of power and a 
sense of independence". Marwick 
says. 

What. then, of the baby-boomers 
today, as the oldest of them pass 
the 40 mark? How is the generation 
which wanted to be forever young 
and forever free coping with mak- 
ing families and being middle- 
aged? The answer is "badly”, 
according to Anna Raeburn, the 
advice columnist and Renata 
Oiin.the London Marriage Guid- 
ance Council's director. 


Both say that what might be 
called the "lifestyle options” cre- 
ated in the Sixties have brought 
confusion to the Eighties. "As a 
society, wc pressed for the 
options". Olins says. "Now. having 
got all these choices, one would 
hope that people would be very 
much happier. But the evidence 
shows the opposite." 

Raeburn says of her own genera- 
tion: "Wc love having choices, but 
wc can't make decisions. We were 
the first generation prepared to 



fc We love having 
choices but can’t 
make decisions’ 


accept that we wouldn't be good at 
marriage.” Statistics confirm her 
pessimism: more than 600.000 
baby-boomers were divorced be- 
tween 1974 and 1984 in England 
and Wales. 


•The ansnvr\ to the questions are: 
I Tour (three were called Monty 
Python's Thing (inrush 2. Donovan-. 
J. f ie coinhed ho hair 


Most of those seeking help from 
the London Marriage Guidance 
Council are from the baby-boom 
generation, more than a third of 
them unmarried but living with a 
partner. Olins says a typical client 
is a woman approaching her mid- 
30s (and wanting a child) who is 
with a man who is shy oflong-term 
commitment. "They have a 
relationship that is neither ecstatic 
nor dreadful. They're struggling to 
come to a right decision.” 

For similar reasons. Raeburn 
believes her generation usually 


make lousy parents. "They don’t ■ 
like the responsibility. They don't 
want to be like their own parents. 
They renege on everything. The 
most I'd give them would be five 
out of 10." 

Pan of the problem seems to lie 
with the significance given to being 
young in the Sixties. Growing 
children and ageing partners can be 
a unwanted reminder of the pass- 
ing years. Baby-boomers often shed 
their families in a vain attempt to 
regain their youth. 

.An American psychologist Dr 
Dan Kiley. has named this the 
"Peter Pan Syndrome”; its victims 
are people who are adults by age 
but children by behaviour, marked 
by obsessive self-interest and a fear 
of growing up. Dr Kiley attributes 
the phenomenon to easier living, 
more permissive child-rearing and 
the recent change in male-female 
roles. 

“The idea developed in the 
Sixties that youth was not some- 
thing to pass ihrough on the way to 
adulthood but something to stay 
in". Dr Kiley says. “Those who 
bought this view are now dem- 
onstrating the problems they're 
having by the divorce rate. They 
want to get new toys they don’t 
have to work at It's a form of 
consumerism, and you're gening 
an inercasingamouni of depression 
and alcoholism in this age group." 

The positive aspect of this rush 
back to youth is the new enthu- 


siasm for jogging, pumping iron, 
aerobics, squash, vitamin supple- 
ments and health food, all of it 
essentially created by baby- 
boomers. The average participant 
in the Mars London Marathon was 
bom in 1947. Rolling Stone , once 
the house journal of the baby 
boom, now advertises running 
shoes. Nautilus weight-lifting ma- 
chines and skin conditioning gel 
where it used to show drug 
paraphernalia. 

The baby-boomer can never 
quite forget the horrifying prospect 
that middle age was made out to be 
during the years of his or her youth. 
Mick Jagger had called it a drag. 
Pete Townshend of The Who had 
hoped to die before he got there. A 
not untypical 1 9-year-o!d contrib- 
utor to Generation X said: “Old 
people are ridiculous, they're pho- 
ney. Everything they do is false.” 
Therefore the baby-boomer is 
determined to grow old in an 
entirely different way. 

Saaichi and Saatchi's John Perris 
says: "In this country the most 
significant factor about the baby- 
boomers has been their reluctance 
to give up their youthfulness. 
They've introduced diet conscious- 
ness and the whole 'looking good' 
thing. They've been responsible for 
making Joan Collins a sex symbol 
at 53. A 40-year-old today looks a 
lot better than a 40-year-okl of 20 
years ago.” 

So the baby-boomers have 


moved from Joan Baez to Joan 
•Collins, from the I Ching to Trivial 
Pursuit: they are more likely to 
want to work out than freak out As 
Perris notes, however, they have 
"carried their values through”. 
They are no longer conscious of 
being a generational swell surging 
through society, but as they take on 
' positions of power their influence 


There was nothing 
authoritative left - 
to latch on to’ 


is far greater than when they had 
only placards and rock music. 

Not every graduate of the. Sixties 
though, believes in the lasting 
benefits of an apparently golden 
age. Rosie Boycott, aged 35. who 
founded the feminist magazine 
Spare Rib. was one of the damaged. 

After leaving college in 1967 her 
life traced the arc of alternative 
culture from youthful hope to adult 
disillusion: anti-Vietnam war 
demos, rock at the Roundhouse, a 
pilgrimage to San Francisco, work 
for the underground press, mari- 
juana. LSD. heroin, increasingly 
casual sex. feminism, lesbianism, 
collectivism, meditation in Ban- 
galore with Sai Baba and in Bolder 
with Trungpa Rinpoche. jailed for 
drug smuggling in Malaya and 


eventual alcoholism by the age of 
30. 

"It was a very rudderless time”, 
she admits. "There was nothing 
authoritative left to latch on to. 
There were one hell of a lot of 
casualties and I think there are a lot 
who in a way haven’t recovered 
and who find themselves coming 
up to 40. having had an extended 
youth during which nothing much 
was achieved. 

*T think that being a baby- 
boomer means that ultimately you 
,are more dissatisfied. We were 
naive, we were irresponsible, but. it 
was meant from fife heart and.it 
obviously, hasn't worked. As a 
consequence, things are never 
quite good enough for us. 

“What happens is that you are 
put back into a responsible life, a 
responsible role. Vou can't escape a 
lot of the things you thought you 
could escape and at the same time 
you actually haven't pul anything 
new into place. We are all still 
strapped- with bloody mortgages 
and worrying about the TV licence. 
We were offered a big carrot which 
we never quite caught hold of.”

Forty years • ago 
! Zhazhidong. pan of a sprawl- 
ing area known as the Si no- 
American Co-operation 
Centre, was notorious as 
a US-backed Kuomimang 
concentration camp that held 
300 communist prisoners. On 
the night of November 27. 
1949. just before communist 
forces gained control of 
Chongqing. Chiang Kai-shek's 
wartime stronghold. 
Kuomintang military secret 
service agents under the com- 
mand of General Dai Li put to 
death all of the camp's pris- 
oners (except 15 who escaped) 
and burned the compound to 
the ground. 

In the 1960s Zhazhidong 
and another Kuomimang 
camp nearby called 
Baigongguan were re- 
constructed and turned into 
museums exhibiting national- 
ist atrocities, attracting mil- 
lions of Chinese visitors. 
Today the carefully preserved 
camps underscore the 
government's dilemma. As 
Peking courts Taiwan in a 
propaganda campaign aimed 
at convincing the Republic of 
China to become part of 
mainland China, and woos US 
firms to invest more money in 
Chinese joint ventures, it 
continues to tell the Chinese 
masses that the nationalists 
arc monsters and that Ameri- 
cans are imperialists and 
reactionaries. 

Ironically, far from being a 
centre of leftism. Chongqing, 
the largest city in the Chinese 
leader Deng Xiaoping's hfync 


province of Szechwan, is a 
stronghold of Dengism. And 
the location of these so-called 
anti-Kuomintang and anti- 
imperialist museums there 
may mean that the Dengists 
are in two minds about how to 
present the west, and China's 
recent history, to her one 
billion people. 

The horror of Zhazhidong 
lingers in the narrow cells and 


Centre". Established only a 
few years ago. the exhibition 
was taken to Peking for a 
successful showing for several 
weeks in 1984. 


Chinese communists rather 
than Japanese invaders. Their 
dispatches, filled with doubts 
and warnings, were either 
overruled by President Frank- 
lin Roosevelt or intercepted 
directly by Kuomintang 
agents.

According to a Chinese 
pamphlet entitled "Brief in- 
troduction of the historical 
facts concerning the Sino- 
American Co-operation 
Organization concentration 
campu Chongqing". US and 
Kuomimang organizers set up 
22 special training centres 
throughout China where they 
armed and trained more than 
50.000 nationalist military 
spies and through which they 
provided more than 9.000 
ions of equipment to the 
nationalist military secret 
service. . .

so-called interrogation rooms 
where racks, spiked dubs, iron 
prods and chains were once 
used on inmates. 

Photographs of the camp's 
communist martyrs now 
adorn its interior. Youthful 
idealistic and intellectual faces 
stare out from the glassed 
picture frames. Men and 
women prisoners were seg- 
regated. though at 
Baigongguan members of at 
least one family were incar- 
cerated together. Two walls of 
an exercise yard at 
Zhazhidong cany nationalist 
slogans like "Confess, your 
youth passes very quickly". 

Down • the road from 
Zhazhidong stands the "ex- 
hibition hall of the crimes 
committed by the. Sino-. 
American Co-operation 


The pamphlet lists the US 
field officer in charge of the 
centre — in effect General Dai 
Li's deputy director — as 
M.E Miles. Milton "Mary” 
Miles (1900-1 961). a Chinese- 
speaking graduate of the US 
Naval Academy and later an 
admiral in the US Navy, had 
visited China in the 1920s and 
1930s before being sent by the 
Navy in the early 1 940s to run 
coven operations against the 
Japanese along China's east 
coast. 


O n the other side of the 
mountains from 
Zhazhidong. Miles's 
rambling. 15-room house still 
stands, high on a hill near 
several Kuomintang villas, 
commanding a sweeping view 
of the railroad tracks that once 
brought prisoners to the 
camps. 

This summer the house is 
being renovated by Chinese 
labourers. The workers say 
that they do not really know 
who Miles was. or why the 
house is so special, although 
they know how to pronounce 
his name. They have been told 
only that the house they arc 
repairing will be reopened 
later this year as a museum.

Bull and 
bravado' 
brigade 


There is stamina as 
well as precision 
and presentation to 
Prince Philip’s 
favourite pastime 


If the Queen's Cleveland 
Bays, when they stir in their 
stables' on Wednesday morn- 
ing. are expecting no more 
than another gentle bridal 
trot to the Abbey, they . are in 
for a shock. 

Along with 200 of the finest 
carriage-horses in the world, 
they will be heading for .Ascot 
for the World Team Driving 
Championships. If they win, 
either as an individual team 
or as part of the official 
British entry, it will be a just 
reward for their driver. Prince 
Philip, because it was be who 
virtually invented the sport as 
it is organized today: an 
unlikely blend of boll and 
bravado. 

' The bnD is in the presenta- 
tion section, where drivers are 
judged on the appearance of 
their four horses, carriages 
and harnesses. Presentation 
judges make sergeant majors 
look like social workers: they 
even count the buttons on 
grooms' tail-coats. 

The bravado comes on 
Marathon Day (Saturday) 
when die same horses and 
drivers are tested to their 
limits over a 25-mile, cross- 
country coarse containing ob- 
stacles and awkward terrain. 
To be wrongly positioned by a 
coaple of inches can some- 
times prevent a team from 
clearing an obstacle. It is like 
squeezing four camels (and a 
carriage) through the eyes of 
a row of needles. 

Driving also -attracts an 
nnnsual blend of people. 
When the members of the 
British team are announced 
tomorrow morning the Duke 
of Edinburgh may find him- 



Princc Philip: Help from 
Concorde's designers 


self displaced by either a 
plant-hire contractor from 
Dorking. Alwyn Holder, or a 
scrap dealer from- Cambria, 
George Bowman. It takes 
£30,000 a year to keep a team 
competitive; sponsors provide 
much of that. 


It is no sport for the weak. 
There is the physical stress, 
the sheer pull on the reins and 


the swiftness with which the 


fingers most move to accom- 
plish the most basic of 
manoeuvres (seven finger and 
wrist movements for a left- 


hand turn). But it Is the mind 
which tires before the limbs 
and the winning driver next 
weekend will be the one who 
can still think faster than his 
horses when they cross, the 
finishing line. 


The strength of partner- 
ship between horse and driver 
cannot be appreciated until it 
fails. I was riding as groom in 
a driving championship a' few 
years ago when one of oar 
horses took fright at the 
unexpected depth of the wa- 
ter-hazard and brought the 
team to a tumbling halt 
Horses Tell and kicked out as 
they desperately struggled to 
keep their heads above the 
water. We bad to cut the 
ani m als from the harness. 


Accidents will happen in 
competition as intense as this. 
Drivers are being pushed to 
the limit and even Prince 
Philip is said to have con- 
sulted the Concorde- design 
team about the ideal weight 
distribution for carriages.

Karieen Koen, a former journalist, has 
become a millionaircss from the 
advance rights on her first book, a 
novel set in the 18tb Century and 
published today. PauI Vallely met her 
in her native Texas. Now read on 


Having written a best-seller 
which hardly-anyone has read, 
the author finds herself in a 
curious limbo. And it was a 
difficult book to write in the 
first place, considering that 
she lives' in Texas and decided 
to set her story in I8tb century 
England and France. . . 

But Karieen Keen is not 
easily daunted and is certainly 
not cowed by the voices raised 
in criticism of tbe advance she 
has been paid for her historical

“I don’t mind bong' a 
.blockbuster**, she says in sar- 
donic, rather elegant Southern 
tones which suggest that the 
reality of it will never quite 
filter through to her unassum- 
ing single-storey home in a 
wealthy Houston suburb. 
“I've put the money in the 
bank, though, and not touched 
it”. 

it is easy to bdieve that 
new-found wealth will change 
her life but little Life is 
comfortable already. Ail 
around her arc the luxuries 
which flow from the “mid six- 
figure income" produced by 
her husband's shrewd han- 
dling of bis oil and construc- 
tion investments. 


“It's an incredible boost to 
the ego. But it win set me up 
for a Tittle mud, too. Certainly 
Pm aggrieved at those people 
who have categorized and 
condemned the book without 
even having read ft”. 

The criticism, has come 
from those quarters of tbe 
literary establishment which 
detect a reductive influence at 
work in the' selection and 
markcu'ng of Through A Glass 
Darkly. To them the book is 
the epitome of a new style of 
novel increasingly in derhand 
among publishers who can do 
longer afford to bet .on the 
long-odds outsiders, once an 
integral pari of the ski!) of 
publishing. A book, in short, 
whose main quality is that h 
can be marketed with- tbe 
high-cost hype prevalent in 
'television and films. 

“That annoys me”. Koen 
says. “People who say such 
things have a tendency to 
downplay the intelligence of 
the average reader.. The public 
won't, buy a book or see a 
movie just because it’s pro- 
moted by a two miUion .dollar 
advertising budget It has to be 
good, too. With established 
authors people know what 
they are getting before they lay 
out their money. 

“There are a lot of other 
factors. Publishers are not 
philanthropists. To be able to 
produce works of literature 
they have to have somebody 
bringing in the money. That 
doesn’t seem dishonourable to 
me. 

*Tm not a genius but on the 
other band I was not writing 
just to make money. 1 tried to 
create a story that people 
could dive into, lose them- 
selves. and at the end say *Oh, 

I did enjoy that*.” 

Koen, leveiMAaded as she 
is, was dearly hot prepared for 
the maelstrom into which her 
book has pitched her. She 
began to wnte ft five years ago 
when her son was 18 months 
old and her daughter was - 
seven. Until then she had been 
editor of one of Houston's 
glassy magazines. Home and 
Garden. 

“I had done the whole 
Superwoman thing, even hav- 
ing my son brought to the 
office so that I could breast- 
feed him between conferences. 

I just derided ft was too much 



Texas cfaainstore massacre; Karieen Koen has enough faith in herself and her blockbuster to counter her critics 


and gave up work. Writing a 
book was my husband’s idea— 
it seemed like something I- 
could combine easily with 
looking after die children.” 

Without considering any 
other genre she began an 
historical novel set in the 18th 
century ^ — the staple diet ofher 
reading as a child in Pasadena, 
“ft was a duD old chemical 
town. You needed to escape. 1 
read the Poldaric books by 
Winston Graham. Daphne du 
Maurier was another of my 
favourites. Ever since my 
college days 1 had had a 
fascination with the 18th cen- 
tury. I didn't need to think 
about what I was going to 
write.” 

The plot is described on the 
back of the book as “the 
grandest love story ever told.” 
For Roger Monigeoffiy. the 
handsome and talented Earl of 
Devane “it was simply a.-, 
marriage of convenience. How 
could he know, as be weighed 
the obstacles to the match 
against her binh and fortune, 
that his chosen bride. Barbara 
Alderley. bewitching grand- 
daughter of his friend and 
hero, the great -Duke of 
Tamworth - had loved him 
fiercely since childhood? 

“But as Barbara comes to 
the very brink of her- heart’s 
desire a devastating secret 
from his past shatters her trust 
to fragmriits. from the mel- 
low fragrance of rural England 
to the opulent stew, of deprav- 
ity that is the French court, the 
18ih century fives in its pages, 
lit up by a love of shattering 
intensity.” 

Karieen Koen’s journalistic 


background fostered in her a 
need for accuracy in even the 
smallest detail. She began to 
spend days at Rice University 
anearthing volumes which 
bad not been opened in some 
cases for decades. 

• ‘I read cookery books of the 
time,, books on etiquette and 
manners, on folldore and 
superstitions, as well as a lot of 
standard history and 
biography”. 

By tbe time the book was 
published sbe had read more 
than 300 works of reference 
and had established an exten- 
sive card index on the period. 
Her concern for detail became 
obsessive, even to the point of 

‘I tried to 
create a story 
people could 
dive into’ 

consulting contemporary al- 
manacs for the time the rim 
had risen on a particular day 
in 1721. It gave precision to a 
dawn love scene. 

Her assiduousness was re- 
warded. When the Finnish 
publishers submitted her 
manuscript to an historian of 
the period he could not find a 
angle error of fact. Rosemary 
Sutcliff doyenne of historical 
novelists, described the book 
as “an incredibly potent 
evocation of the 18th 
century” 

If the research brought plea- 
sure to Karieen Koen, the 


writing did not “It was totally 
different from the sort of thing 
I’d been doing as a journalist. 
Mood, dialogue, tempo, struc- 
ture — all were different. My 
ability as an editor made me 
painfully aware of just how 
bad my writing was. ft was 
humiliating”. 

Two novels withered in the 
early stages. The third went 
through three complete drafts 
before she submitted it to an 
agent whose name she'd found 
in a reference book. 

“Constantly I wanted to 
give up. I knew it wasn't right. 
I would go into screaming 
depressions. It was my hus- 
band who saw me through. 
Each time, be sai± if you 
know it's not right you can fix 
it - it's only when you don’t 
know that there’s nothing 
more you can do’. 

“As I was into the third 
draff he asked me if I thought 
it would help if I went to 
Europe to look at some of the 
places i was writing about I 
said yes. though I probably 
would have said that even ifi 
didn’t think so”. 

After an eight-day, break- 
neck tour of London and 
Paris, in which she saw St 
Paul's Cathedral, Westminster 
Abbey, Ham House, Chiswick 
House and Versailles, the 
third draft finally began to 
take on the feel she wanted. 

If the finished product still 
wears its research a little 
ostentatiously on its sleeve. 
Koen feels it to be immeasur- 
ably better than the early work 
— “I fell I had done my best I 
could have given more only by 


Learning from the language of children 


There is an ordered development even in baby talk. A new 
book will help parents to appreciate the subtle changes 


Sumsh Koradra 


T he wonderful world of 
children's language is a 
source of endless fas- 
cination to parents and doting 
relatives. It has also cap- 
tivated Professor David Crys- 
tal. whose new book is a guide 
to help parents understand a 
child's seemingly jumbled 
grammar. When Crystal 
founded the Journal of Child 
Language in. 1975. he had a 
surprised letter saying. “This 
is hardly a complicated mat- 
ter. Surely ail that children do 
is imitate their parents- Why is 
that so surprising?” The view 
was widespread. 

A good deal of research has 
been done since and broad 
philosophical questions about 


the roots of language itself 
have been raised by thinkers 
such as Noam Chomsky. 
Crystal says. “The debate on 
whether language-learning is 
an innate or a deductive skill 
keeps scholars happy for ages. 
But so far. the research isn’t 
reaching the people who might 
enjoy it most — the parents.” 

Because the parents of ba- 
bies and young children are. 
almost by definition, people 
who are too busy to plough 
through Chomsky and learned 
journals. Crystal set out to 
build his bridge; a simple and 
readable account of precisely 
what we know about the 
process. •

word-by-word imitation. Ev- 
ery parent realizes this when a 
child begins to extrapolate 
from one observed rule into 
other situations: for example, 
to say “mouses'* when nobody . 
has ever Used such a plural; or 
like my son at 18 months, to 
form present participles out of 
new words, when a gusty day 
produced the word “wind- 
ing” 

Children dissect language 
with great efficiency, and the 
best way to observe how they 
do if is to listen to their 
mistakes. A new talker may 
remove the indefinite article 
even from places where it 
should slay n warn my 

nother teddy”): but the very 
mistake is proof that he or she 
has taken in the exact function 
of that indefinite article. 

to fact my son's “wind-ing” 
turns out to be not precocious 
but entirely typical: one of the 
newer pieces of research in the 
book derails the usual order in 
which children team different 
word-endings. Rest there is - 
ing. then the preposition in. 
then on. then the -s plural 
then the irregular past tense 
forms like went, and so on. 

. • Crystal says there is remark- 
able consistency in the order 
of learning. So is there some- 
thing about a continuing 
present tense which makes ir 
particularly important to 
mental development and why 
should in be more important 
than <w? 

The science is at a very 
elementary stage. Wc have 
worked on English, but wc 
would need international, 
comparisons before we could 
say that there is some inherent 
significance ih the order in 
which different -endings and 
tenses arc learned. If it docs

psychological reason”. Crystal 
says. 

Parcntsare familiar with the- 
proccss which goes from vocal 
play (coo. goo. and “rasp- 
berries”). through re- 
duplicated babbling (gagaga- 
gagaga). to sing-song scribble 
talk, to the “proto-word” a 
child invents to mean any- 
thing ft wants (Everything was 
a “Duck-a” to my daughter for 
weeks, including the duck). 

B ut there arc oddities. 
Babbling, for instance, 
is not something which 
“shades into speech”, as used 
to be thought: deaf children 
babble, Down's children bab- 
ble. plenty of children go on 
doing it after they can speak. 

In contrast to the puritani- 
cal 1960s trend which con- 
demned baby-talk. Crystal 
approves of “parcnicse”. the 


simplified language which 
parents instinctively use to 
their children. It is a very 
important form of speech 
which bridges the gap between 
them. Why is it that most 
children learn “no” before 
“yes?” What is this obsession 
with “gone" and “all-gone" 
which develops during the 
second year, and does “all- 
gone” represent an early ab- 
stract idea? Is reduplication 
(duck-duck) a useful way to 
speeding up the learning of 
pronouneiation? As yet no- 
body knows for sure. 

Docs it matter if parents 
adopt children's wrong words? 
In our household, we still talk 
about mix-memers (cement 
mixers;, the car's gazhurst 
pipe, and the filifecatcr (filter) 
under its bonnet. Crystal says 
it doesn't “These created 
words are a tiny fraction of the 


20.000 or 30.000 words which 
children use every day.” 

In fact he is against any 
parental bossiness. If a child 
says. “1 biied my sausage”, the 
trick is to say. “Yes. I bit mine, 
too.” Cues, not reproaches, 
work. 

The book, and the babble of 
my own household, confirmed 
above all what a miraculous 
capacity little children have 
for getting grammatical 
constructions right and how 
keen they are to learn them. 

M v daughter, at two. 
seldom answers yes: 
she prefers the game 
of picking out the verb in the 
question and repeating it; 
“Would you like a drink?" 
gets “I would": “Shall we go 
out" — "We shall”; “Did you 
go to Granny's?” — “I did”. 
Just as children like engines 
and warn to know how they' 
go. ihcy clearly like language: 
why not reach them how it 
works? 

Crystal is optimistic. 
“There was a reaction against 
grammar in the 1950s and 
1960s. and schools chucked it 
out People have now realized 
that there was a lot of waffle in 
the creative' approach, and I 
think that schools are trying to 
bring grammar alive now with 
colour and cartoons. It is 
coming back in a less dreary 
form.” 

Crystal recommends keep- 
ing a'tapcd and written record 
of a child's progress “like a 
photograph album”. He adds. 
“Everyone is thrilled at a 
child's first word, but it's no 
less fascinating to hear the first 
intonation pattern, the first 
two-word sentence, the first 
use of pronouns. The more we 
know about the derails of 
language development, the 
more there is to delight in.”

She never doubted that it 
would be published. “I am a

it would rake offlike this. Now 
all I have to do is wait to see if

Her husband. Edward, re- 
gards that as a foregone 
conclusion — a simple return 
on an investment. “When she 
stopped work sbe was earning 
$37,000 a year. In five years 
she would have made 
$200,000 anyway. She's just 
getting what she deserves”. 

Karieen Koen smiles at the 
notion. However well the 
book sells, the advances alone 
will ensure that she now has 
the freedom to cany on writ- 
ing as she wishes. Her heroine 
is being transported for the 
sequel to a New World planta- 
tion in Virginia. After that she 
has already planned a 
“prequel” which will tell the 
story of her heroine’s aris- 
tocratic grandmother. 

“I hope ! can tell some good 
stories. That’s an honourable 
intention. In the coming 
weeks there will be a lot of 
razzamataz. There wifi be a lot 
of nonsense talked about how 
brilliant it is and a lot of mean- 
spirited criticism. I will try to 
keep a sense of perspective.

only a book.”

During the space of a single 
week. I learm that a woman 
receptionist at the Park Lane 
night dub in Covenny had 
won a £750 settlement for 
being sacked because “as a 
woman she would not be able 
to deal with the increase in 
violent customers”; that male 
exeentives are buying a key- 
board game called Master- 
Type so that they can handle 
their computers as deftly as a 
woman can; and that a 
bridegroom's sister was al- 
lowed to be his best man but 
was barred from his stag 
party in case blue jokes 
thickened the air. 

There seems to be a bit of 
role confusion around here. 

Mrs Claire Catmur, who 
wanted to stay at the Park 
Lane night dub and deal with 
difficult customers through 
sweet reason rather than 
chucking them ont of the door 
was unlucky to be given tbe 
heave-bo berself.lt is now 
generally thought that women 
should be allowed lo be 
lumberjacks and bouncers 
and firefighters — or bodies 
like tbe Equal Opportunities 
Commission will want to 
know the reason why. 

Employers are increasingly 
happy with this arrangement 
because history has shown 
that women work out cheaper. 
When did you last meet a rich 
nurse? 

All those executives des- 
perately playing typing 
games so that they can shape 
the corporate world from 
their terminal had better 
learn keyboard skills fast 
before women start muscling 
in. Once this happens man- 
agers may see their jobs go 
the same way as bank clerks* 
and teachers'. 

An American study by the 
National Academy of Sci- 
ences discovered that when 
women entered a professional 
Geld, earnings tended to drop 
not only for the women them- 
selves but also for their male 
colleagues. 

No wonder the Wall Street 
Journal reported that “men at 
the top feel uncomfortable 
with women beside them”. 
Their discomfort coold be 
because they caa see the end 
of the days of wine and roses 
and Gucci briefcases as soon 
as a woman merchant banker 
becomes as common a sight 
as a female telephonist. 

It is strange that this has 
come about since men's sal- 
aries are based on “the family 
wage” and presumably their 
families don't disappear just 
because Daddy's company 
has started to recruit 
Mummies.

Mummies, in these di- 
vorce-prone days, may even 
have to raise their children all 
by themselves. 

Yet the fact that working 
women have “commitments” 
seems to have become the love 
that dare not speak its name. 
Studies of women in manage- 
ment by Ailecn Jacobson and 
Patricia McBmom found that 
married women with career 
ambitions had to be careful 
not to refer to husbands, 
children or home while at 
work. 

How unfair since working 
men ore allowed to keep 
simpering studio photographs 
of the wife and kiddies on 
their desk and bore for En- 
gland on the subject of tbe 
baby's teething troubles. 

Perhaps there Is a world- 
wide conspiracy on the part of 
the employers which insists 
that all career women behave 
as if they were single. They 
can then be paid a “spinster's 
wage" which will also be 
offered to male employees so 
that nobody can .complain 
about unequal pay. 

Clearly, working practices 
leave something to be desired. 
But ft is no use anyone 
thinking that they can call it a 
day, slink off to be a full-time 
homemaker again and find 
true happiness. Most of the 
opposition to ERA (the Equal 
Rights Amendment) came not 
from men fearing for their 
jobs but from housewives 
fearing for their social 
position. 

They felt that things had 
come to an unhappy pass 
when they had to admit, 
shamefacedly, to other 
women, that they were “only a 
housewife”. 

Perhaps they would feel 
better about it if they could 
add that they put in the odd 
stint as best man.

For those of us who love the 
Church of England, these are sad 
and confusing times. In a world 
threatened by the danger of a 
nuclear holocaust already en- 
gulfed in mass starvation in the 
developing world and mass un- 
employment in the developed 
world: in a world with the tragedy 
ofSouth Africa and at home rising 
drug addiction, marriage break- 
down. inner-rily riots and at the 
same lime an explosion in the 
membership of fringe and some- 
times suspect religions, the 
Church of England's response is a 
threatened split over ihe ordina- 
tion of women. 

Most Christian laymen cannot 
understand why. if women can be 
monarchs. prime ministers, 
judges, surgeons, scientists, they 
must be prevented from celebrat- 
ing Holy Communion and mar- 
riages. It is little wonder that, to 
many, the church is seen as an 
irrelevant religious club and no 
more than a sideshow that can put 
on a colourful performance at 
national tribal rites like royal 
weddings. Only the amazing ex- 
ploits of Terry Waite, the Arch- 
bishop of Canterbury's foreign 
affairs adviser, seem to pul the 
church in a good public lighL 

Of course there is outstanding 
and faithful work being done by 
priests and laity here and there, 
often in very difficult circum- 
stances. although some are left in 
their posts too long by an appar- 
ently uncaring church. But as two 
recent reports - Faith in the City, 
and Rural Anglicanism —show, 
good work is the exception rather 
than the rule. For me. the Faith in 
the City report, calling upon the

actually did the very things which 
arc now being recommended by 
the report, creating strong, well 
Stalled, multi-purpose ecumenical 
church centres which reach out 
and serve the local community. 
Bui we were criticized and con- 
demned for our radical approach. 
In the intervening years the 
church has not just retreated from, 
the inner city: It has stampeded 
from it. so that today there are less 
than half the clergy working in the 
deanery of Greenwich than there 
in my day. 

Today we have, on the one 
hand, a suffocatingly complacent 
ecclesiastical parliament, a church 
near dead in the inner city, a fast- 
dying church in the country areas 
but still struggling on in suburbia; 
a church that gives the impression 
it does not know what it believes. 
But on the other band we also 
have a church which still generates 
much goodwill - a recent par- 
liamentary rowing regatta on the 
Thames raised £50.000 for Si 
Margaret's Church. Westminster 
— and a nation which shows all the 
signs of desperately needing the 
spiritual under-pinning that faith 
can give. 

It could of course be that God 
wants the church, which has 


served the nation reasonably well 
over the centuries, to die in its 
present form so that it may be 
raised up to hew life in a different 
form, to serve a very different 
kind ofsociety. It could be that the 
organized, church is like a drug 
addict oralcoholic and not until it 
is iii the gutter of despair will it see 
the need to radically change its 
habits: It could therefore be that 
we have no alternative but to 

■ waicb and pray as things get 
worse. If thai-is the case it is hardly 
surprising that young men of 
vision, ability and energy do not 
see themselves called to .the 
priestly minisiiy.. '■ 

.1 have no slick solutions, but I 
have four convictions: 

• The Gospel of Our Lord Jesus 
Christ is even more needed today 
than it has ever-been in a country 
like ours, where the material needs 
of most. bin. by no means aft, 
people are. met. 

• The leadership for change must 
come from- the Archbishop of 
Canterbury himself, supported by 
his fellow bishops. It will not come 
from the dericalized laity who 

. serve the church synods and 
boards. The bishops are now so 
frightened about possible splits in 
the church over the ordination of 


women that they got motions at 
the lost synod withdrawn so that 
they could reassess the situation.. 
Perhaps this could, be the opening 
of a new chapter when, instead of 
huffing and puffing, they give a 
firm, strong and decisive cor- 
porate lead, not only , on the 
ordination of women bnl on the 
many other important issues 
which confront the church. 

• The changes required will have 
to be what church people will 
consider as being very radical. 
Clergy will have to be retrained, 
some will have to take early 
retirement, freeholds will have to 
be modified, resources re-de- 
ploycd. A new drive, enthusiasm. 

. energy and urgency will have to be 
injected into the archaic ecclesias- 
tic machine. I can hear the 
archbishop and his advisers saying 
this is worldly- talk rather than 
Kingdom talk, but l fear that so- 
called Kingdom , talk is often no 
more than an excuse for doing 
nothing. 

• The religious dub type church- 
man will find the' changes yery 
painful. Bui those' millions of 
baptised Anglicans- who "vaguely 
consider themselves as being 
believers and who would like io 
get more involved — if they weir 
not so put off by the church — 
would welcome them. 

I think we may have to face the 
Tact that — however dynamic the 
leadership, however much the 
bishops stand together insuppori 
of the archbishop — the church, as 
wc have known it will not .revive: 
not least because the'church’s vast 
endowments. enable It to stagger 
along, however impoverished in 
spirit it is. But we must hot lose 
heart, for, in the end. God has it ali 
under control. He is not mocked. 
His purpose will prevail: His love 
will triumph. His -Kingdom will 
come in earth, as it is in heaven.

Michael Hamlyn on the fresh sectarian crisis the Gurkhas pose India 

Gandhi 




rouses 
a Bengal 
tiger 

Darjeeling 

There is a curious irony in that, 
while the sturdy hill-men of 
India's Gurkha regiment patrol 
the streets of Delhi to keep the 
Hindus and Sikhs from each 
other's throats. Sikhs in jungle 
green ha^c been keeping the place 
among the Gurkhas of Darjeeling. 

For here, in the district around 
the Brihsh-built hill-station, 
where the mean temperature is 
never more than a degree or- two 
abou* London's, the latest in this 
country's appalling ethnic dis- 
putes has already killed around 25 
people by official count and 
between 30 and 40 by a more 
informal calculation. The situa- 
tion. according to Bal Gopalan. 
the district magistrate, is at 
present under control “but far 
from normal”. 

It is less than four months since 
the agitation took its present turn, 
so this is. in a sense, the first ethnic 
crisis faced by -Rajiv Gandhi's 
government which cannot be 
blamed on any previous admin- 
istration. Gandhi's abilities may 
well be judged by the way the 
dispute continues. 

Of course, a certain amount of 
blame-shifting is going on. The 
central government and Gandhi's 
Congress Party say that the 
responsibility for the dispute lies 
with the communist-led govern- 
ment of West Bengal, of which the 
Darjeeling district forms an incon- 
gruous part. The Communist 
Party of India (Marxist) says that 
central government must deal 
with the Gurkha demands. 

Darjeeling itself was given to the 
British by the King of Sikkim 150 
years ago. in return for his being 
restored to the throne by a British 
force which had driven out a 
Nepalese invasion. The area, a ' 
maze of ridges and valleys in the 
southernmost fringe of the Hima- 
layas. was virtually uninhabited. 
Over the years the population 
grew from the 100 or so Lepcha 
tribesmen living in mud huts and 
practising a nomadic, bum-grow- 
and -mo vc-on sivlc of agriculture 
in 1836. to 10.000 by 1850. By the 
turn of the century the develop- 
ment of the tea ' industry 1 had 
attracted immigrants who took the 
population to around 250.000. 



niyw yirw a up— wj— —————— ^ — raw fwwwi 

The Darjeeling line . . . separatists hope h will one day lead to independent Gorkhaland 


These people mostly came from 
neighbouring Nepal, where the 
various castes and tribes of that 
Hindu kingdom all like to- call 
themselves Gurkhas, after the 
home of the king who finally 
united the kingdom. 

Today's population of rather 
over a million is mainly Nepali in 
origin, though obviously the 
majority have been born in the 
district. In the three troubled sub- 
districts around the (owns of 
Kalimpong.' Kurseong. and 
Darjeeling itself, the population is 
95 per cent Nepali. ' 

The open - border with the 
neighbouring kingdom was . rec- 
ognized by the government of 
independent India, .which, in 
1950. signed a treaty, of which 
article seven declares: “The gov- 
ernments oflndia and Nepal agree 
to grant, on a reciprocal basis, to 
the nationals of one country in the 
territories of the other, the same 
privileges in the matter of res- 
idence. ownership of property, 
participation in trade and com- 
merce. movement and other privi- 
leges of a similar nature.” 

The result is that Nepalese and 



Indians can live and work in each 
other's countries; and can cross 
and recross the joint border 
without trouble. Evidence of the 
success of article seven is seen, for 
example, in Delhi, where virtually 
every nightwatchman is a Nepal i. 
J( is strange, then, that this 'danse 
has become the centrepiece of the 
agitation in Darjeeling, where 
demands for its withdrawal are 
written on walls. 

A demand for an autonomous 
Gurkha region was first lodged as 
long ago as 1907. and the Nepalese 
in India have felt a niggling sense 
of grievance ever since. “I would 
say that it is a genuine grievance,'’ 
said - the Anglican . bishop , of- 
Darjeeling. John Ghose. . -^The 
Nepalese people have been ex- 
ploited in North Bengal. “There 
are no job opportunities in the 
area. Economically and educa- 
tionally it is backward/* 

But what brought the agitation 
to its present head was the way 
Gandhi dealt with the agitation in 
the neighbouring state of Assam. 
The Nepal is saw a population of - 
Bengalis suddenly become the 
victims of an anti-foreigner cam- 
paign by the native Assamese. In 
near-by Meghalaya. - things came 
even closer to home. Taking a leaf 
from the Assamese book, the 
Meghalaya government also 
evicted foreigners - but this time 
they were of Nepalese stock. The 
explanation for this was that the 
Nepalese speakers, although they 
claimed to be Indian-born. ’ had 
been allowed to stay because of 
article seven, and were none the 
less foreign. The Gurkha reaction 
was to rail for the abolition of 
article seven, and — in case the 


West Bengal government should 
everltry to evict the Nepalese — 
renewed • their call for , the 
establishment .of a separate 
Gorkhalahd (in Bengal the “ah' 
vowel sound ofmost.oiher Indian 
languages becomes an “oh” -and 
so Gurkhas become Gorkhas.)- 

These fears brought .instant 
feme and recognition to an ob- 
scure agitator. Subash Ghfsing, 
■who had for years led the'Gorkha 
National Liberation Front. He 
began a -series of demonstrations 
to press the .case, .for autonomy. 
The GN1P has never beed;quite 
dear whether it. wants Gorkbaland 
Jo be an autonomous region 
.within Bengal, to have a .separate 
existence within India/ perhaps as 
a union territory, or to be com- 
pletely independent 

The enemies of theGNLF have 
been able to characterize ■ the 
agitation as anti-national, and 
paramilitary police reinforce- 
ments were brought in to 'help 
control it. On July 19 Ghisingwas 
reported to have called for the 
Gurkhas to “cut the throats of the 
central reserve police force", an 
injuction which' his followers - ap- 
peared anxious to take literally. 
Nineteen people died in dashes 
with police. 

Ghising's organization then 
called a 4Vr-day general strike, 
which amply demonstrated the 
popular support his aims now 
have in the district. It also led to 
lethal clashes with CPU M) unions 
among the tea garden labourers. 

After the strike ended: Ghising. 
and . other leaders of the GNLF. 
went underground. Tension re- 
mains high, arid the authorities 
await his next move.

Minutes after his release from

Peter Robinson was driven to

torpedoing the agreement by Pais-

Saint Joan’s 
two armies 


Conor Cruise O'Brien, writing on 
this page recently about Nica- 
ragua. suddenly transported me 
back 30 years into an A level 

English lesson; . . ; . 

A set book for the examination 
that year was Shaw’s Saint Joan. 
Whether the play deserved this 
accolade on literary grounds I am 
• not quite sure, but it certainly 
Should be required reading for any 
politics course. For me the kernel 
of the play lies in a scene between 
the Earl of Warwick, and 
Cauchon, the Bishop of Beauvais. 

■ Both, for their different reasons, 
want to get rid of Joan. To the 
bishop, she represents .a direthreat 
to the. authority of. the Church 
because she will .not - accept ns 
interposition between fieTself and 
her “voices". “What will the world 
be like.” he asks passionately, 
“when the Church's accumulated 
wisdom and knowledge and 
experience, its councils of learned, 
-venerable, .pious men. are thrust 
into the kennel by every ignorant 
labourer or dairy-maid whom the 
devil can puff up with the mon- 
strous self-conceit of being directly 
inspired from heaven?” 

Warwick, tfre secular potentate, 
.is not particularly excited about 
this heresy; indeed he is detached 
enough to analyse it coolly and 
give it a name. “It goes deep, my 
Lord. It is the protest of the 
individual soul against the inter- 
ference of priest or peer between 
the private marr and his God. I 
should call -it Protestantism; if I 
had to find a name for it” He is fer 
more concerned at another dan- 
gerous idea, which Joan typifies 
and which he sees as gaining 
ground among the common peo- 
ple. the erosion of loyalty to the 
feudal lord and its replacement by 
loyalty to the land. 

Cauchon, analytical in his turn, 
develops this second idea, saying 
that, to Joan, “the French-speak- 
ing people are what the Holy 
Scriptures describe as a nation. 
Call this side of her heresy 
Nationalism if you will: I can find 
no better name for it. 1 can only 
tell you that it is anti-Catholic and 
antirChristian; for .the Catholic 
Church knows only .one realm, 
and that is the realm of Christ's 
Kingdom.” 

And this, according to Conor 
Cruise. O'Brien, is more or less 
what the Pope has been saying to 
the Nicaraguan Marxist theolo- 
gians. Protestantism (in the sense 
of -the “protest of the individual 
soul . . . against interference”) 
and nationalism aresiill alive and 
well and tearing the world apart: 
“cen tunes of bloodshed”, as Shaw 
put it presdently in 1924. “that is 
not yet staunched”. 

Shaw saw both forces as pail of 
human evolution and used Joan 
almost: as a mere agent- But 
whetherone. accepts die theory of 
historical inevitability that lies 
-behind this or not it is remarkable 
- what a powerful hold both ideas 
have, despite their long record of 
destructiveness. ■’ Freedom of 


thought and a homeland — what 
could be. more fundamental to 
human happiness, and yet more 
impossible apparently to achieve 
for most of the earth s population? 

Although in the developing 
world it is the left that is seizing 
the two ideas, in Britain and the 
US it is the right. But all too easily, 
the “protest of the individual 
soul” becomes mere individ- 
ualism. acquires the spurious 
glamour of the adjective “ruggetT . 
and degenerates into selfishness 
and a disclaimer of the very idea 
of community responsibility. By a 
similar .corruption simple patri- 
otism slithers into a nasty mixture 
of jingoism, and isolationism.. a 

On a short dip from an Ameri- 
can television report on our own 
news last week, i heard an 
interesting example of Reaganite 
thought- Farmers faring bank- 
ruptcy in one drought-ravaged 
area were being- helped by train- 
loads of hay from luckier farmers 
in another part ofthe country. The 
recipient, expressing his gratitude, 
protested altogether too much. 
“It's not welfare; it’s like a 
neighbour helping you rebuijd 
your barn when it's blown down in 
a storm: it's like a GI helping his 
wounded buddy back to the field 
hospital. Thai’s not welfere." Ob- 
viously the mere idea that he 
might be dependent on any sort of 
public responsibility had thrown 
him into a moral panic. 

. But just as it is the temper ofthe 
right to apologize for dependency, 
so it is The temper of the left to 
apologize for individualism. An 
example is an article defending 
psychotherapy by Susie Orback in 
the latest issue of Marxism Today. 
She is worried about the “link 
between the therapeutic notion of 
persona] responsibility and the 
prevailing right-wing idealpgical 
stance of personal responsibility”. 
She admits that therapy is often 
criticized on the grounds that it is 
"a repudiation of public 
responsibility, an individual re- 
sponse to public ills”, but rejects 
these criticisms on the grounds 
that therapy need not be “devoid 
of political content" and should 
lead to a realization that “our 
psyches -are an embodiment of 
social relations”. 

- Now I have no doubt at ail that 
the former speaks to more hearts 
than the feminist — and not only 
because he is more easily under- 
stood. A left using language, even 
opaquely, to convey the message 
that public equals good and 
individual equals bad is up against 
an overwhelming prejudice. 

Mrs Thatcher of course realizes 
this better than any other poli- 
tician. Even Bernard Shaw, whom 
I cannot imagine feeling anything 
but detestation for her. policies, 
would have seen the Saint Joan in 
her! Her voices, too, tell her she is 
right Which is why. despite her 
brittleness, her shrillness, her pig- 
headedness and her incom- 
petence. die is still where she is.

The first thing we 'noticed about 
the circus was- that -almost every- 
one workmgrn it had a bad .limp. 

. One doesn't expect much of a 
tiny travelling cirnis turning lip in 
a tiny Breton village, as this did 
one day last month; but one does 
expect that most of the performers 
wiH walk - normally. As It was. it 
seemed that sometertibie series of 
accidents must have happened in 
the past Sparing- only ihe . down 
and the ring-master. The man who 
brough the; props on and ■ off 
seemed to have been injured the 
worst he limped not only with his 
legs but also wfth Jus back. 

■ The other thing we noticed was 
how sad -everyone looked. We 
could understand -the badly in- 
jured stagehand looking tragic, as 
he thought of his brilliant future 
behind him. but there seemed no 
excuse for the ring-master's furi-

did no such thing. He cracked his 
whip several times and finally got 
a direct hit, at which the llama did 
change direction. The injured 
stage-hand put out a pole so low 
that the Hama did not notice it 
while sweeping over. 

The ring-master promised us 
that -Serge the llama would lie 
down aslf fest asleep. Serge did so. 
And this is where things started to 
go badly wrong, because Serge 
now refused to get up again. He lay 
there, bead flat on the ground, 
while the ring-master tried in vain 
to pull him up. We clapped and 
laughed, because we thought it was 
all in the act, but the ring-master 
did not laugh and nor. for the first 
time, did the down when he came 
on to help pull the Mama up. 

- Within minutes there were half 
a dozen circus people in the ring, 
all trying to remove the llama. An 
old man we had never seen before 
limped on and tried to tempt Serge 
off with a loaf. Serge accepted it in 
his mouth, but still lay motionless,

President Reagan's decision to 
sell cut-price wheat to the 
R ussians has been justly -criti- 
cised. Once again national 
interest has been seen to 
prevail . over international 
solidarity, market principles 
have been blown to the wind 
and the m efficient, non-mar- 
ket economy of the Soviet 
Union has been the benefi- 
ciary: 

.It is not, of course, quite as 
' simple as that. The price the 
Russians are paying ' for their 
. American wheat is unlikely to 
- be lower than the present -, 
average world price. - It is 
subsidized m terms of domes- 
tic US wheat prices (by about 
Si 3 a tonne), but sales are 
. being finalized around the 
world at lower prices even 
than these. Moreover, the 
quantity the Russians are buy- 
ing would justify a discount in 
almost any market conditions. 

Given that the Soviet Union 
is obliged, under the terms of 
the present US-Soviet grain 
agreement, to buy a minimum 
of four million tonnes of US 
wheat a year, the Russians are 
buying their quota advanta- 
geously; But if that obligation 
did not exist, they might well 
be able to buy a similar 
quantity more cheaply else- 
where. To this extent the 
bargain is more limited than it 
may seem. 

The real problem is twofold: 
the worldwide subsidies for 
commodities — like grain — 
which are in plentiful supply, 
and the politicization of the 
grain trade. Grain is now — 
and has been since President 
Carter restricted US grain sales 
to the Eastern bloc following 
the Soviet invasion of 
.Afghanistan — a political 
commodity. Not only is It a 
past and potential weapon in 
East-West rivalry. It is also a 
potent force in domestic poli- 
tics. and not in the United 
States alone. 


In the European Commu- 
nity. the farming lobby has 
shown its hostility to market - 
principles time and time again, 
for reasons of domestic 
expedience. It ill behoves* 
European leaders to complain 
about subsidies to US farmers' 
for grain sales lo the Soviet 
Union when European butter 
is sold at knock-down prices to 
the Eastern bloc, when arti- 
ficial mechanisms allow sales 
of- cheap (Le. subsidized) 
wheat m traditional US mar- 
kets, and when European 
solidarity with the United 
States in another matter — the 
sale of equipment for the 
Siberian gas pipeline - was not 
forthcoming, far reasons of 
national interest 

The grain trade has become 
equally politicized in the main 
recipient countries. In the So- 
viet Union it is a matter of 
national shame that the 
•'progressive"’ collectivized . 
agricultural sector has proved . 
incapable of feeding a popula- 
tion smaller than that of the 
United States, which has so 
large a grain surplus. In recent 
years, Soviet leaders have 
treated the statistics for grain 
production as state secrets, 
though there is evidence that 
total production has. over the 
past five years, fallen by 20 per 
cent compared with the pre- 
vious five years. Details of 
grain purchases from the West 
are not made public. 

In China; the achievement 
of self-sufficiency in grain 
(which was largely a result of 
the revival of market prin- 
ciples in the countryside) was 
regarded as a triumph not 
simply because it meant more 
food for the people of China, 
but because of the greater- 
political freedom it permitted 
the country’s foreign policy 
makers. 

At the same time, the politi- 
cization of the world grain 
trade has only been possible 


because a few countries, chief 
among them the Soviet Union, 
are unable to feed themselves. 
They are vulnerable to the 
grain weapon. However, the 
use of that weapon by the West 
is of questionable value. Not 
.. only is it morally doubtful 
whether people should be de- 
prived of food in peacetime in 
protest against their leaders* 
policies. It is also, if those 
. leaders are willing to pay 
market prices for the food they 
themselves have been unable 
to produce, bad economics — 
as President Carter’s grain 
embargo demonstrated. 

The one glimmer of hope to 
emerge as a result of President 
Reagan's derision is the 
strength of the opposition 
expressed from within the US 
establishment Even such loyal 
presidential supporters as Sec- 
retary of State George Shultz, 
and Commerce Secretary Mal- 
colm Baldrige. have publicly 
voiced their misgivings about 
the wisdom of selling sub- 
sidized wheat to the Soviet 
Union to placate American 
farmers. 

Given that boih Shultz and 
Baldrige are engaged in deli- 
cate discussions with the So- 
viet Union with a view in the 
one case to a future successful 
summit meeting, and in the 
other to valuable orders for US 
companies, there may have 
been a measure of expedience 
in their objections. Nonethe- 
less, this defence of free trade 
and market principles in pref- 
erence to the short-term na- 
tional interest is praiseworthy. 

Widespread acceptance of 
these principles offers one 
■way, perhaps the only way. of 
breaking the unholy alliance 
which currently exists between 
the US farmers and the eco- 
nomic planners of the Soviet 
Union — an alliance which 
'does much to keep world grain 
prices unnecessarily high. 


From Afr James Bourlct 
Sir. Three years ago the EEC 
information office here in Tokyo 
made arrangements with Japan to 
limit shipments of video-cassette 
recorders to EEC member states 
and since then supplies have 
indeed been reduced and prices 
raised. 

As a recent Trade Policy Re- 
search Centre study has shown, 
the result for Britain has been an 
important consumer loss without 
any corresponding employment 
gain. The balance of advantage for. 
other member countries has also 
.been, to say the least, question- 
able. . 

But though hardly noticed at the 
time, the arrangement had an 
effect offer greater significance in 
that it was a -break through” in 
wresting decision-making on trade 
policy from EEC member govern- 
ments to the EEC executive itself. 
Since this political effect was in 
feci the main aim. serious dis- 
cussion of the economic effects of 
the arrangement were — and are — 
irrelevant 

In addition to restrictions on the 
sales of VCRs the arrangement 
provided for EEC “monitoring" of 
selected Japanese items sold in the 
EEC and this in turn has led to 
numerous actions against selected 
products such as electronic type- 
writers. Thus the EEC has now 
effectively consolidated trade pol- 
icy aspects of sovereignty in its 
own bands. 

Here officials, journalists and 
foreign correspondents now duti- 
fully attend EEC information 
office press conferences. There is 
virtually no trace left of a British 
voice or perspective bn such 
important matters as Common- 
wealth interests, free or multi- 
lateral trade, die UK’s invisibles 
trade position and much else — 
such concerns are simply sub- 
merged in the EECs protectionist 
clamour on behalf of continental 
manufacturing interests. 

The damage however, is by no 
means limited to Britain. The vast 
EEC-generated publicity, both in 
Japan and in Europe, complaining 
of the- difficulties of selling in 
Japan, which was supposedly 


intended to influence the Japanese 
authorities, has in feci backfired 
by frightening many European 
buisnesscs away from the Japa- 
nese market or away from making 
the necessarily high marketing 
investment and commitment 
here. Thus the bilateral visible 
trade imbalance between Japan 
and the EEC is now in part a 
product of EEC ham-fisted ness! 

Meanwhile, those companies 
who have ignored such propa- 
ganda and have quietly investi- 
gated and invested here on their 
own initiative, such as BMW and 
Wedgwood, are doing well. Simi- 
larly. adverse EEC publicity here 
on whisky import taxes is unlikely 
to lead to lower imported whisky 
prices but has “informed" the 
Japanese consumer that such 
products “cost** little and thus can 
no longer serve as worthy gifts. 
Everyone has lost — but EEC 
politics grind on. 

But these are mere details 
compared 10 the main effect on 
Japan, where the overwhelming 
need is to enable consumers and 
voters to fed that it is in Japan's 
national interests to accept im- 
ports and enjoy the consequent 
retail price reductions. The real 
tragedy of the EEC's only 100 
effective publicity campaign is 
that it has identified such an 
import policy firmly with foreign 
rather than Japanese gains and has 
thus greatly strengthened the 
hands of Japanese domestic pro- 
ducer interests. 

Sadly one must conclude that a 
most useful economy for the EEC 
to make would be to ask their 40- 
odd staff here in Tokyo to pack 
their duty-free bags and return 
home forthwith, leaving the nor- 
mal diplomatic and consular staffs 
of EEC member states to handle 
matters in their traditionally 
experienced and effective way. 
Yours faithfully.

CRIMEWATCHING 


. . . Miles Kingtos

&•- 


■a. 


Not so very long ago the only 
visual aid available to. the 
police in their fight against 
crime was the photograph of a 
wanted man displayed in a 
• public place. A- more "recent 
*- variant has been the Identikit 
picture, composed . from the 
descriptions .of witnesses, 
which gives at least some idea 
of the appearance of a person 
wanted but unknown. An en- 
tirely new dimension, how- 
ever, has been provided by 
television, with its unprece- 
dented scope for involving the 
eyes of the public in the 
business of criminal investiga- 
tion. 

How much has it so far been 
used for this purpose? The 
pioneer in the field was Shaw 
Taylor with his programme 
Police 5, which has been 
running for well over 20 years 
in close collaboration with the 
Metropolitan Police. The 
programme’s success is ev- 
ident not only from its durabil- 
ity, but also from official 
figures. In his report for last 
year the Metropolitan Police 
Commissioner, Sir Kenneth 
Newman, states that •‘out of 
the 249 cases featured in Police ■ 
5 in 1985, information was 
provided which- was of direct 
value in no less than 167 
eases.” This was “more than 
double the number in 1984.” 
Mr Taylor, also does similar 


programmes for Central Tele- 
vision and Television South. 

BBC Television was perhaps 
rather . slow to follow Mr 
TayJor’sexample onITV. But 
for the past -two years BRC1 
has been . obtaining a huge 
nationwide* audience for its 
progr am me Crimewatch UK, 
which specializes iii the dra- 
matic reconstruction of 
crimes. It, too, can claim 
strikingly good results. In the 
21 showings of the programme 
to date, 204 cases have been 
covered; and in consequence 
60 people have been arrested 
and charged. Of these 34 have 
so far been brought to trial, 
and all found guilty. (The cases 
against the rest are still pend- 
ing). 

There has been one local 
offshoot of Crimewatch UK 
Crimewatch South, which ran 
through last autumn and win- 
ter on BBC Southampton. In 
addition, 'a few local police 
. forces — notably Kent — make, 
their own videos to assist them 
in preventing or investigating 
crime. These can either be 
shown to audiences in schools, 
halls or old people’s homes, or 
supplied to local television 
stations for inclusion in then* 

. programmes. 

All this is fine so far as it 
goes, but does not yet amount 
to much when set against the 


daunting statistics of crime. 
Above all, it does not amount 
to. much in the total length of 
time given to slid* -pro- 
grammes. on the air. Shaw 
Taylor’s appear weekly, more 
or less throughout theytar, but 
• each runs for only 15 minutes. 
Crimewatch UK is* 40-minute 
programme going out at 
9.30pm, and followed by a IQ- 
minute update at a quarter to 
midnight But it appears only 
once a month. Granted the 
success rate of both pro- 
grammes, and the scale of the 
problem, it would seem that 
far more air time should be 
given to both of them, and to 
other programmes that might 
be launched to serve the same 
purpose nationally and locally. 

Of course there is a limit to 
what can be done with only 
four channels. But since there 
are, for instance, frequent 
weather programmes every 
day to help us take suitable 
precautions against sun, rain, 
wind or frost, it. is surely 
reasonable to suggest that 
equally frequent and daily 
programmes might be broad- 
cast to help the community in 
its (at present losing) battle 
against crime. Moreover, with 
the gradual development of 
cable television it should be. 
possible for a Whole channel to 
be made available for anti- 
crime broadcasting. 


Tale of two faiths 

From Mr G. £. Hester 
Sir. I congratulate you on the 
publication, on succeeding days, 
of complementary articles — Ber- 
nard Levin's “The snake still lives 
in the garden” (August 1) and 
Conor Cruise O'Brien’S “War of 
two faiths in Nicaragua” (August 
2). Bernard Levin wanted us of the 
intellectuals who will visit and 
justify totalitarian regimes. Mr 
Levin even put “And the latest, of 
course is Nicaragua” 

“Latest” was ’ die right word 
because the next day we had Mr 
O'Brien solemnly telling us that 
“The Sandinista elite is un- 
questionably joined to the 
people.” Mr O’Brien expects us to 
believe that the Marxists of Nica- 
ragua are really in favour of the 


Catholic Church: they just hap- 
pened to be opposed to the 
bishops of Nicaragua and the 
Pope. 

- When the Marxist regime ex- 
pelled two Catholic bishops, it 
accused them of being “supporters 
of American aggression”. The 
regime has just refused to allow 
Mother Teresa of Calcutta per- 
mission to set up two commu- 
nities of her Missionaries of 
Charity. Presumably the Nica- 
raguan Marxists regard Mother 
Teresa also, as a supporter of 
. American aggression. Presumably 
there are visiting intellectuals who 
will believe them.

Greyhound racing 

From Mr P. A. Sweeney 
Sir, The criticism of the Monopo- 
lies and Mergers Commission by 
Mr Mqjury and Lord Newall 
(August 5) is unwarranted. The 
investigation into the greyhound 
monopoly could have been 
avoided with a little measure of 
consideration or tolerance. 

The closure of many tracks 
during the sixties prompted hun- 
dreds of owners and trainers to 
form the Greyhound Council of 
Britain in 1970 to foster racing. 

Because a restrictive role which 
forced owners to race greyhounds 
under false names on non-NGRC 
tracks was seen to be strangling the 
sport I was appointed to lead a 
deputation to beg the NGRC 
stewards to change this rule. We 


were told that they had no power 
to alter any rale which might affect 
the interests of their member 
trades. 

This rule was fundamental to 
the terms of reference of the recent 
inquiry. The inevitable verdict 
that it has operated 'against the 
public interest is welcomed by all 
who believe in equal opportunity 
for all owners, trainers and lic- 
ensed tracks, but only a statutory 
control board can ensure the 
future and integrity of the sport. 
Yours faithfully,

COLOMBIAN CONTINUITY 




Nine months after the costly 
terrorist assault on the Palace 
of Justice in Bogota and the 
immense catastrophe of the 
.Nevado del Ruiz, last week the 
Conservative BelisariO 
Bctancur completed his 
presidential terra and handed 
office to his successor the 
Libera] Dr Vfrgilio Banco. 
Colombia’s democratic in- 
stitutions have once again 
shown their ability 10 survive 
extraordinary stresses. 

; This transfer of power also 
marks the end of coalition 
arrangements between the 
Republic’s two traditional par- 
ties that were- entered into 
nearly 30 years ago. The 
outgoing Conservatives have 
declined Dr Barco's offer of a 
share of ministerial posts. 
They have refused not from 
sectarian resentment or quib- 
bles about numbers but from a 
cool calculation of their future 
political interests, and can do 
so now without fear that their 
absence from government will 
lead to a revival of the partizan 
hatreds that cost the country 
so dear ip the 1 940s and 50s. 

. Despite the. Liberals’ land- 
slide victory in the elections, 
the Conservative are by no 
means to be written off. Presi- 
dent Betanciir's standing in ihe 
opinion polls at the end of his 


term has been unusually high 
— the Colombian political 
system customarily erodes 
Presidential prestige unmerci- 
fully. • 

There are grounds therefore 
for some optimism in this 
change, and also in some 
elements of likely continuity 
with the previous administra- 
tion. DrBarco has not repudi- 
ated his predecessor’s attempts 
to reach peace, accords with 
Colombia's various guerilla 
groups, attempts whose 
considerable success and 
popularity have been too 
much overshadowed .by the 
occasions on which they have 
spectacularly failed. The truce 
with the largest and tret 
organized group, the Moscow- 
line FARC, has held, and in 
the congressional elections its 
political arm obtained a- small 
but significant representation. 

The new government ■ has 
promised to reinforce the 
peace agreements with those 
sincerely inclined ...to accept 
them with greater resources, a 
degree of agrarian reform and 
, an attack on unemployment in 
cities which particularly affects 
the young. At the same time 
Dr Barco is. markedly less 
inclined to enter into imagi- 
native • dialogues than Dr 
Bctancur. 


Economic prospects have 
recently somewhat improved. 
At the higher levels. Colombia 
has for two decades produced 
the best economic manage- 
ment in Latin America. Those 
tempted to comment that 
there has not been much 
strong competition should be 
reminded that Colombia was 
alone among, major — and 
minor — Latin America 
Republics in resisting the in- 
cessant and sophisticated urg- 
ing to borrow that was the 
bankers' wisdom of the 1 970s. 
That resistance had something 
to do with the free play of 
politics and criticism, , which 
did not prevail elsewhere. 

Colombia suffers from vi- 
olence. drugs and persistent 
poverty, and nobody would 
describe Colombian democ- 
racy as perfect But it is in large 
degrees a democracy, and in- 
isofar as it is. there is plenty of 
Colombian evidence that 
democracy works. There is no 
reason to demand that - its 
party system should conform 
10 some arbitrary norm; it is 
not the only Republic of the 
Americas to be frilled . by. an 
archaic-seemingtwo-party sys- 
tem with obscur 1 9th -century 
origins, where the independent 
Left can* never gel 5 perceni of 
the vote. 


Anonymous views 

From Mr R. Edmonson- Woods 
Sir. In accordance with accepted 
custom, readers' letters are never 
published by reputable news- 
papers unless they are duty signed. 
Yet dairy you publish leading 
articles which are anonymous. 
Openness in public affairs, much 
lauded in your own columns, is 
the watchword in these so-called 
enlightened days but this practice 
of concealing the identity of those 
writing articles calculated to in- 
fluence and mould, public opinion 
would seem hard to justify. 

The leading newspapers on the 


continent of Europe have long 
followed the usage of linking the 
contents of main columns with the 
name, or ax least the initials of 
those who compose them. This 
practice enables readers to connect 
the information contained in lead- 
ing articles with its author and at 
the same time, to assess both. 
Thus, secrecy is done. away with, 
writers acknoweldge certain 
responsibility for their views and 
generally, there is more interest in 
reading the newspaper. 

Yours truly.

Up the family tree 

From Dr Mark McEredy 
Sir. Your Science Editor. Mr 
Pearce Wrighu in an interesting 
review (August 4) of the latest 
.dating for Neanderthal stone 
tools, suggests that these ancient 
men were contemporaries of our 
early ancestors and probably inter- 
bred with them. 

I would like to put forward the 
alternative hypothesis that Nean- 
derthal man could not interbreed 
with Cro-Magnon man because he 
had 48 chromosomes, like the 
apes, while we and the Cro- 
Magnons have 46. 

If this is true we shall never find 
any skeletons of Neanderthal/ 
Cro-Magnon cross-breeds and the 
biochemistry and chromosomes 
of all the many and di verse sorts of 
modem man will prove so similar 
that descent from a mutant 46 
chromosome person living only 
IOO.OOO years ago will appear very 
likely. 

Perhaps wc really are all broth- 
ers under the skin!

Chapel heritage 

From Mr Christopher Stell 
Sir. The General Secretary of the 
Methodist Church Property Di- 
vision (August 2) fails to grasp the 
distinction between listed build- 
ings and those deemed by English 
Heritage to be eligible for grants. 
No reduction in the number of 
listed chapels would increase the 
limited funds available since 
gram worthiness is assessed in- 
dependently of statutory listing. 

It is a sad commentary on 
official Free Church attitudes to 
conservation that a demand for 
unlimited licence to alter build- 
ings of outstanding historical im- 
portance should be coupled with 
an evident belief that grants 
should not inhibit the destruction 
of notable interiors. 

Religious observance is en- 
hanced by a respect for the 
monuments of the past Abolition 
of ecclesiastical exemption will 
hurt only insensitive ritualists 
whose wilful tinkering? have too 
long gone unrestrained. 

Yours faithfully.

Stepping up in 
clinical science 

From die President of the Royal 
College of Physicians of Edinburgh 
Sir. Much of the fine record of the 
NHS regarding patient care and 
the improvement in treatment 
and prevention of disease in the 
UK has depended on providing 
young doctors with opportunities 
to study and develop new ideas 
and methods. 

This has been a vital but poorly 
recojgnised keystone of modern 
British medicine. But the recent 
consultative document on hos- 
pital medical staffing, issued on 
behalf of the UK health depart- 
ments. commendable as it may be 
for the health service, gives cur- 
sory and imprecise consideration 
to the way doctors in training 
might either be offered opportu- 
nities to pursue clinical research 
without prejudicing their future 
career prospects in the health 
service or to embark on a career in 
academic medicine which will 
rank equally with a career in the 
health service. 

Sir David Innes Williams and 
his distinguished colleagues 
rightly describe in a recent letter 
(July 30) clinical reseach as “under 
dire threat” and predict, again 
rightly, that once its base has been 
eroded it will be extremely diffi- 
cult to re-establish. 

One solution which should go 
far to reverse the current disas- 
trous downward spiral in aca- 
demic medicine and the 
consequent deleterious effects in 
ihe quality of the health service is 
to establish an entirely new career 
structure to which medical and 
non-medical graduates may as- 
pire. 

Unfortunately, the constraints 
on the Medical Research Council 
are at present too great to provide 
sufficient new posts. The structure 
should provide junior and senior 
career-investigator posts within 
existing university medical 
schools, offer security at senior 
level and permit lateral movement 
into and out of the existing 
university and health service sys- 
tems. 

Such a career structure would 
re-establish the identity of clinical 
science: It would offer a real future 
for many bright young graduates, 
be a great fillip to morale and 
improve the quality of the health 
service.

Jury challenge 

From his Honour Paul Layton 
Sir, I am disappointed that no one 
seems to have written to you 
following John Spencers’ ad- 
mirable and important article. 
7 H 0 W to weed out the biased 
juror” (August 1L Among other 
things be suggests that court 
officials should check potential 
jurors for defects such as deafness 
and literacy; good in its way but 
not enough. A better procedure 
would be on the following lines. 

With each jury summons would 
be a short and simple ques- 
tionnaire covering such things as 
occupation, education and in- 
terests. The answers would be 
made available on a confidential 
basis to counsel on both sides. 

Challenges for cause by both 
defence and prosecution could be 
based on them. No one but the 
judge would be permitted to 
question any potential juror. The 
judge could deal with circum- 
stances relating to individual cases 
(e.g_ employees of a prosecuting 
authority). 

In any event, as challenges for 
cause are likely to become more 
common if the peremptory chal- 
lenge is abolished, it would be well 
in the interests of consistency for 
there to be some broad statutory 
guidelines for the exercise of the 
judges* discretion in deciding 
whether to allow a challenge. 

Yours faithfully.

Yellow peril 

From Mrs Brenda Anus 
Sir. The highways and byways in 
this part or the country are now 
bright yellow with ragwort, mak- 
ing the oil-seed rape spring flower 
show pale. Ragwort is poisonous 
to ruminant animals, but unpalat- 
able until it is withering, either 
from old age or from being 
sprayed. 

I and my small work-force have 
spent, at least 100 person/hours 
clearing this detestable weed from 
56 acres of newly bought land: but 
the county council is doing noth- 
ing about the verges of the A23 
near by. Quite shortly this bumper 
harvest win go to seed with 
foreseeable disastrous con- 
sequences. 

Yours faithfully,

For the record 

From Mr William Barrett 
Sir. Mr Woodruff's timber mer- 
chant (August 6 ) must have a 
system for record and security 
purposes and it must perforce be 
used whether the transaction is for 
30p or £1,000. To me the system 
sounds a not unreasonable one: 
Mr Woodruff has made it appear 
long-winded by describing it in a 
long-winded way. Indeed, he took 
5 Vi column inches of paper to do 
so. 

Yours faithfully.

ON THIS DAY 


AUGUST 11 1868 

This extract from a long narrative 
relating the experiences of a^vung 
lady who survived the massacre of 
C awnporp in June 1857 was sent 
to The Times by o third party. A 
leading article thought that "The 
authentication . . . is so far 
satisfactory that we do not 
hestitate la submit it to our 
readers, but we must remark that 
room seems to hare been left for 
what in scholastic language would 
be termed a corruption in the 
text..." 


TA CAPTIVE OF] 

[MUTINEERS. J 

. . .“I had to accompany the flying 
enemy, and made a detour of 
great portion of the North-West 
Provinces on foot. viz.. Bareilly, 
Rohikund, Futtegfaur, 

Shafajehanpore. and the district 

near Delhi. After travelling 
through all these places we joined 
the mutineers at Lucknow. On our 
arrival here I met my sable 
benefactor. Ian African who had 
befriended her] who informed me 
that Mouh’ie AhmedooQah Shah, 
commonly called the Fyzabad 
Mouhrie. was one of the principal 
men or generals among the muti 
neers, and he was certain that the 
Moulvie would shelter and protect 
me if I wrote to him, stating my 
hard case . . . 

“As the Moulvie could read and 
write English I had not much 
difficulty in making him under- 
stand my deplorable condition. On 
a piece of dirty paper, in which 
some salt had been served to me, I 
managed to scribble with a bit of 
charcoal a few lines to him, stating 
my case in a few words, and 
begging of him, in the name of his 
prophet, Mahomed, to help me. as 
it was impossible to drag on my 
miserable existence with the native 
soldiers, whose conduct to me was 
cruel in the extreme. The kind 
African, under whose advice I 
acted, not only promised to take 
my note to the Moulvie, but to 
plead my cause for me . A day after 
he brought me a verbal reply from 
the Moulvie to the effect that the 
Begum, his mother-in-law, would 
take me under her protection, and 
that I should be one of the ladies of 
her household. 

“The following day a suit of 
dothes similar to those worn by 
Mahomedan ladies of distinction 
was brought to me, and 1 was 
instructed to bathe and proceed to 
the Begum's Palace at the 
Kaiser bagh. 

“I shall briefiy pass over the 
particulars of my conversion to the 
Maho medan faith and installation 
as a Lady of the Household, as 1 
feel pained fo think of this period 
of my eventful existence; suffice it 
to say that I had had to contend 
with sufferings enough to bend and 
subdue any' woman. The effect of 
the fll-treatment I had endured 
tended to make me a downright 
hypocrite. I could have been made 
to do anything, and I played my 
part as a convert to the 
Mahomedan creed in a style at 
which I feel astonished now. I was 
obliged to learn by heart portions 
of the Koran (Mahomedan Bible), 
and had, mornings and evenings, to 
get through my devotions. If 
excited the least suspicion in the 
minds of those about me of being a 
Christian instant death would have 
inevitably followed. When I accom- 
panied the troops I was at one time 
orderedtobeblownfromagun.bat 
on account of a hasty retreat I 
fortunately escaped, though at the 
time 1 was glad of the order, for my 
life then was well-nigh 
intolerable 

Nearly a month had elapsed 
thus, and reports were rife that the 
Commander-in- Chief of the Brit- 
ish forces, Sir Colin Campbell, was 
advancing effectually to relieve the 
garrison, and the way in which be 
afterwards achieved bis purpose 
has been acknowledged by all as 
excellent 

“The Begum, with whom I was 
now putting up, wss a grim and 
suspicious woman, and, when 
thwarted or annoyed, acted with 
prompt cruelty. She understood 
well her position, and on rumours 
reaching her of the frequent defeat 
of her troops by the British, she 
was irritable to the fast degree. On 
the approach of the Commander- 
Chief her equanimity entirely 
forsook her. She treated me with 
great severity, and abused me 
frequently, calling me Kaffir, or 
unbeliever, a hypocrite, a shit, ami 
serpent who would yet sting her 
benefactors. Her treatment of me 
at last became crueL I tried to bear 
up with her 01 -humour as well as I 
could, for to have saida word to her 
would have been needless. Death, I 
knew fbH welL stared me in the face 
should my conduct be in the least 
offensive. 

“One morning she entered my 
apartments in a frantic state, ana 
commenced, as usual, calling xne 
smses. I thought it was one of her 
usual fits, but my eyes were opened 
when she said, ‘Your general is 
approaching, but will find it no 
easy task to take Lucknow, for we 
have done all in out power to 
strengthen our defences. Wretch 
you shall die rather than escape. I 
therefore advise you to prepare 
yourself today, and make your 
peace with Adah, for tomorrow at 
dawn of day you shall be shot' . . . 


Verbal shorthand 

From Mrs Nonna Bell 
Sir. My excited daughter phoned 
me from Oxford yesterday and 
had only time to blurt out, “Guess 
whati John got a one one. Sue got a 
two two and Anna Golla got a two 
two too!” before we were cut off. It 
took me several hours to figure it 
om. 

Have any of your readers re- 
ceived similar incongruous phone 
messages?

Award for 
Burrell 
Gallery 

By Charles Knerift 
Architecture Correspondent 

The Burrell Gallery in Glas- 
gow, a Roman Catholic 
church in Orpington. Kent, 
and the Royal Concert Hall in 
Nottingham are among seven 
architecture awards presented 
this year by the Royal I nsliluie 
of British Architects. 

Tfie Ismaili Centre in South 
Kensington, London, built for 
the Aga Khan Foundation, the 
restoration of the Old Vic 
Theatre in Waterloo, London, 
the Herman Miller warehouse 
in Chippenham, Wiltshireand 
the J.EL Conservation Cen- 
tre in Bramhall. Cheshire, are 
among 23 commendations. 

All the buildings were com- 
pleted between 1 978 and 
1983. Embarrassment caused 
in previous awards when 
buildings failed to live up to 
their expectations led lo the 
decision that they must have 
been in use for at least two 
years before they become 
eligible. 

The purpose of the RIBA 
architecture awards is to give 
public recognition to 
outstanding examples of cur- 
rent architecture and thereby 
to achieve greater public 
appreciation of good design. 
The award winners are: 

Armstrong Works, New- 
castle upon Tyne - Ryder

for V & E Friedland Ltd, 
Reddish. Stockport - Derek

If proof were needed ihaL the Church of 
England moves and breathes within the 
moral and intellectual atmosphere of 
English society generally, it would be 
the way the general synod debated the 
issue of sanctions against South Africa 
last month with no more reference lo 
the underlying moral and philosophical 
issues than has been made in the secular 
political argument in more recent 
weeks. 

it is the famous English bias against 
theoretical ideas, and dislike of moral 
argument. “Sanctions” have somehow 
become the touchstone of serious 
opposition to apartheid: it is enough 
that it is so. for gut-reactions to tine up 
for or against. 

An analytical philosophical or 
theological case for sanctions would 
have to start by establishing that there is 
something peculiar to apartheid, which 
lifts it out of the general category of the 
denial of human rights by other Iess- 
ihan-perfect regimes (against which 

sanctions are not proposed). And it 
would have to show that sanctions are 
precisely appropriate, and not just a 
blunderbuss. 

The general synod supplied this son 
of careful analysis to the issue of nuclear 
weapons, and did a public service 
thereby: but not over sanctions. 

Apartheid is by its nature a profound 
denial of the unity of the human race. It 
originates in the Dutch Reformed 
Church's explanation of mankind's 
racial diversity, and its defence of the 
white race's innate superiority, relying 
upon far-fetched biblical evidence that 
the black races were cursed by God. 

. The Dutch Reformed Church no 
longer believes this, but South African 
society has retained the shape this belief 
gave iL and it is therefore still implicitly 
part of the ideology. And observers may 
judge that it continues to motivate 
white South African behaviour towards 
the black races. By the colour of their 
skins they are being excluded from their 
rightful membership of the human 
community. 

This denial of the unity of the human 
race contradicts the emerging moral 
consensus throughout the world. By 
virtue of modem technology, no one 
nation or people can be ignorant of the 


common humanity they share with 
those who are a little different; and they 
cannot be allowed that ignorance, or the 
very survival of mankind is pul at risk. 

No nation or people can therefore be 
autonomous and completely sovereign, 
living as if it alone existed. Its polluted 
rivers will flow, and its poisoned or 
radioactive air will blow, without regard 
for political or racial frontiers. Nor is 
there any scientific substance lo the 
division of mankind into races: their 
blood and tissue are totally interchanges 
able, and they are totally inter-fertile. 
Between different - even closely related - 
species of animal this is not so. 

But the unity of the human race is 
more than a scientific phenomenon ora 
political expedient it is an overwhelm- 
ingly strong moral instinct It is not 
questioned that entire local authority or 
government departments should have 
to turn out all their pockets and drawers, 
and senior officers face sharp interroga- 
tion in public, their careers at stake, in 
order lo explain the death of one small 
black baby, to whom they owed 
prolection. 

That is civilization, honouring the 
unity or the race. The unique feature of 
apartheid is that it denies that in 
principle; which is nothing like the same 
as not observing iL or not observing it 
very well, in practice. 

As a cause and as a consequence of 
this unity, all the peoples of tbe globe 
now contribute to the constant inter- 
national exchange of goods, persons, 
and cultures, thereby constituting a 
world community, and thereby sharing 
the benefits of civilization among' 
themselves. It is clear that while South 
African society has no right to belong or 
take part in this mutual exchange, for it 
denies its basic moral premise, in 
principle. Tbe price of membership of 
the world community is commitment to 
the unity of the race. 

Thus sanctions, meaning the forced 
withdrawal of white South African 
participation in the life of this commu- 
nity, are a singularly appropriate re- 
sponse. The moral character of 
sanctions is of the same order as the 
moral character of apartheid. Each in its 
way is an exclusion from sharing in tbe 


benefits of membership of tbe human 
family. 

But black South Africans do not 
deserve such exclusion, which is where 
the only possible moral case against 
sanctions arises. It is necessary, it is. 
said, to allow white South Africans to 
enjoy what they are not entitled to, in 
order that black South Africans should 
not suffer. 

To that there are two answers. The 
threat front sanctions to black South 
African welfare is essentially economic 
and material. It is the greater evil 
because it is a moral spiritual and 
religious evil, to deny their full human- 
ity. The rest of the world may certainly 
make that judgment, and chose the 
higher value. Such a choice canHOt .be 
called immoral. 

Group Captain Leonard Cheshire, 
VC. OM, was once asked whether RAF 
bombing crews would have been pre- 
pared to try to bomb the Auschwitz rail- 
heads and gas ovens, knowing That - 
apart from the risks to themselves - they 
would be bound to kill many of the Jews 
in the camp, and perhaps miss their 
targets too. He replied that he thought 
they would have done, provided they 
knew that the Jews in the camps had 
wanted them to. 

That is the second answer. So the 
political assessment has to be made, 
whether there is consent to sanctions in 
black South Africa, in spite of the likely 
consequences. 

The irony of apartheid's origins in 
biblical fundamentalism is that the 
story of Adam and Eve. if taken literally, 
is the clearest possible argument for the 
unity of the human race: all people of all 
races having common first parents. 
Though the story is now regarded as 
strictly mythical, human beings are so 
closely related that it is a myth which 
ought to be true. 

The story, as a moral parable, teaches 
that humanity is one enormous ex- 
tended family, with all the obligations of 
family membership. Race and national- 
ity are nothing in comparison; no real 
family would ever reckon them im- 
ponanL And it is by denying that that 
white South African society has no just 
claim on the rest of the family. That is 
the meaning of the ancient Christian 
penalty of excommunication.

Rectory 

railway 

threatened 

By Trudi McIntosh 

After 24 years of delighting 
steam engine endmsiasts, the 
Cadeby Light Railway and its 
unique Fat Clergyman's 
collection of memorabilia, 
built up by the late Rev Teddy 
Boston in his rectory gardens 
in Cadeby, Leicestershire, 
may have to be split op. 

His widow, Mrs Audrey 
Boston, pictured with Pixie, a 
Dagneli narrow gauge loco- 
motive, is determined to beep 
tbe collection intact despite 
plans to merge the parish of 
Cadeby with Market 
Bosworth, which would mean 
selling the rectory. 

“It would he heartbreaking 
to part with the collection 
which has become a landmark 
in this district", she said 
yesterday. 

Mr Boston, inspiration for 
tbe Fat Clergyman in Thomas 
the Tank Engine and other 
tales of steam trains written by 
his friend, the Rev W. V. 
Awdry, died last April 

More than 10,000 people 
visit Cadeby every year to 
admire his Great Western 
Railway model and traction 
engines. 

Mrs Boston hopes the 
twenty-fourth Market 
Bosworth Traction Engine 
Rally, to be held at Cadeby 
next weekend, will not be the 
last.

OBITUARY 

PROFESSOR GLEN 
SCHAEFER 
Ecology and pest control 


professor Glen Willard 
Schaefer, who had been Direc- 
tor of the Ecological Pbw 
Research Group at Cranfield 
Institute of Technology since 
1975, died on July 25 after a 
long illness. He was 56. 

He had done distinguished 
work in nuclear physics before 
turning to the ecological inter- 
ests which were to be domi- 
nant in the latter part of his 
life. ^ 

Born in Kitchener, Ontario, 
on May 25. 1930. he devel- 
oped a deep interest in natural 
history in his early years. But 
his ability in mathematics and 
physics also blossomed and he 
gained a BA (1st Class) and 
MA degrees in Mathematical 
Physics at the University of 
Toronto. 

He came to this country in 
1953 to do a PhD at the 
University of Birmingham, 
and remai ned, at traded by the 
stimulating intellectual atmo- 
sphere he found here. 

Having- completed his re- 
search degree in Quantum 
Electrodynamics, he went into 
industry in 1956 with the 
English Electric company, 
where he developed the basic 
physical models for under- 
standing the behaviour of 
nuclear power reactors. 

His interests in the living 
world continued - especially 
his studies of bird migration 
and flight mechanics - and 
had, by 1966, become domi- 
nam. He then formed the 
Biophysics Research Unit in 
the University of Loughbor- 
ough, where, using a tracking 
radar, he was able to measure 
the flight characteristics of 


individual birds, gathering 
much useful data on wingbeat 
frequencies and migration 
patterns. 

He also turned his attention 
10 the economic problems 
created by migrant pests, in- 
cluding locusts in Africa and 
Australia. He worked too. for 
the Canadian Forestry De- 
partment. helping to control 
the Spruce Bud worm Moth 
which attacks spruce trees. By 
refining his work -on radar 
analysis he was able to show 
for the first time the scale and 
intensity of insect migration 
and its relation to atmospheric 
phenomena. 

The research group had 
moved to Cranfield in 1975. 
and he was given the status of 
a professor. At Cranfidd he 
worked on problems associat- 
ed with the dispersal of agri- 
cultural sprays. His concern 
was to reduce the damage to 
the environment and to hu- 
man beings. 

A lifelong Christian Scten- 
tisL he was latterly exploring 
the relationship between 
Christian Science healing and 
what is normally underatood 
bv science, with the aim of 
developing an expanded view 
of natural philosophy. 

Glen Schaefer was a stimu- 
lating colleague who enjoyed 
an intellectual challenge. 
Philosophical by nature, he 
was dynamic in his approach 
to his work, to which he 
devoted a great deal of time 
and mental energy. 

He married, in 1964, Mary 
Malecka. They had a son and a 
daughter. The marriage was 
dissolved in 1981. 


DR FREDERICK HALLIS 


Dr Frederick Hallis. barris- 
ter and author of Corporate 
Personality ; died on August 3. 
He was 85. 

Bom in Port Elizabeth, 
South Africa, of emigrant 
parents from Vienna, he grad- 
uated from Grahamstown 
University, and then went to 
Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar at 
Balliol. There he look his 
DPhiL 

A member of the Inner 
Temple, he was called to the 
Bar in 1927, and in 1930 
published his study in juris- 
prudence, Corporate Personal- 


ity. This was reprinted in 1978 
and has recently been translat- 
ed into Japanese. 

For over 40 years, with a 
break for war service in the 
Royal Artillery, he was a head 
of chambers in the Temple 
with a substantial common 
law and commercial practice. 
His strength and reputation as 
a practitioner were based on 
the great care and attention he 
gave to paper work. Cases, he 
maintained, could be won or 
lost on the pleadings. 

In 1933 he married Helga 
Slang, who survives him with 
one son of the marriage. 


MR CLIFFORD HARPER 


Mr Clifford Harper, who 
died on August 3, aged 85, was 
one of the last headmasters of 
the 1930s who guided their 
schools through evacuation. 
Later he did much for educa- 
tional exchanges with France 
and the United States. • 

Educated at Shrewsbury 
and Christ Church. Oxford, he 
was briefly a traffic apprentice 
on the old London and North 
Eastern Railway, before teach- 
ing at Stowe and at Bedford 
SchooL 

In 1932 he was appointed 
Headmaster of Ring Edward 
VI School Southampton, and 
in 1939 he Supervised the 
school's evacuation to Poole, 
where it remained for the 
duration of the war. . 


In 1946, with the school 
restored to Southampton, 
Harper resigned his appoint- 
ment to become a school 
inspector and was appointed 
Metropolitan Divisional In- 
spector in 1952. 

After fils retirement in 1960 
he was for five years chairman 
and director of the British 
Committee for the Inter- 
change of Teachers with the 
USA 

He was appointed Offider 
d'Acaderaie for his services to 
Anglo-French cultural 
exchange. 

His first wife. Georgette, 
died in 1977. Three years later 
he married Margaret Benezra, 
who survives him, with two 
daughters of his first marriage.

‘New cells for old’ 
heal wounds 


By Barry Shurlock 


Cells from young people are 
being ttsed to make biological 
dressings for treating non- 
healing wounds in elderly 
people, whose own cells mul- 
tiply too slowly. 

Skin cells from the donor 
are grown several layers deep 
in culture and then fixed to the 
surface of the dressings, which 
are used like conventional slrin 
grafts. 

The new grafts (called cnl- 
tured allografts) conld be a 
significant advance for many 
of the 300,000 people in the 
UK who are estimated to 
suffer from leg ulcers, accord- 
ing to skin specialist Dr Irene 
Leigh, who leads the team 
which is developing the new 
treatment at the London Hos- 
pital, Whitechapel. 

"eg ulcers are generally a 
problem of the elderly: they 
often do not respond to con- 
ventional treatment and may 
cause pain and discomfort over 
many years. The new allo- 
grafts have been shown to 
relieve pain within 24 boars 
and to promote healing in 
abont 60 to 70 per cent of 
cases. 

The discovery that the 
grafts are not generally re- 
jected, despite . consistn^* of 
“foreign” cells, came as a 
surprise to the London grou p, 
whose work was prompted by 
what where regarded as in- 
credible claims by Dr Jack 
Hefton, the man who first nsed 
cultured allografts In 1983 at 
Cornell University, New York. 

The London studies follow 
earlier work on cultured skin 
cells which showed that grafts 
grown from patients' own slrim 
cells (called autografts) can be 
used effectively to heal teg 
ulcers, bums, wounds, ^ 
other serious Iqjnries. How- 
ever, the snag with autografts 
, tiie cells of many 
elderly people have lost the 
ability to replicate rapidly fa 
culture. 7 

This problem has been over- 
come in the allograft technique

by using cells taken from 
young women undergoing 
breast reduction and other 
forms of cosmetic surgery. 

Examples of cases in which 
cultured allografts have been 
nsed with great success at the 
London Hospital were pre- 
sented recently by Dr Tania 
Phillips at a meeting of the 
British Association of 
Dermatologists, held at Shef- 
field University. 

A typical case was that of an 
elderly patient who had -been 
suffering continuously since 
1970 from ulceration, includ- 
ing two attempts at skin 
grafting. The ulcers would not 
heal said Dr Phillips. With 
the use of cultured allografts, 
healing was achieved after a 
few weeks and is still main- 
tained after a year, she said. 

The apparent lack of rejec- 
tion. which is found in about 
half of the allografts, . is 
thought to be due to the 
absence of the Lunger bans 
cells, which are not supported 
in culture. They play a major 
role promoting rejection by 
recognizing foreign antigens in 
the skin. 

The researchers are not yet 
sore w hether the allograft cdls 
become incorporated into the 
patient's tissues or act as a 
biological dressing for long 
enough to allow their own skin 
cells to grow over the wound. 

Dr Leigh said: “We suspect 
that they Take* initially and 
are then gradually replaced by 
the recipient's slrin cells with- 
out any rejection episode." 

Some skin specialists have 
suggested that the promising 
rtsolts reported by the London 
poup are a placebo effect due 
to the closer attention given to 
patients, but Dr Phillips re- it 
rates this. 

If she is right, there are 
many thousands of elderly 
patients who will eventually 
benefit, together with their 
t*Ps and district nurses, whose 
semces are at present needed 
for regular dressing of wounds.

As in the best Stalag-Lnft' 
stories, the hairy moments 
were decorated with comical 
elements, particularly the 
gross, bearded, Urdentsch 
refugee who fell in with an 
organization who blacked him 
up like a village- ball Othello 
and whisked him out on a

One tends to respond to this

on the occasion of the Waifs 
twenty-fifth anniversary, that, 
the thing had never been buflt 


Certain things never change in Ve- 
rona. There are the myriad sellers of 
soft seats, who could be on 
secondment from Lord's. And at 
9 pjn. sharp, a quarter of an hour 
later in July when on some evenings 
darkness never seems to fell, there are 
the thousands of candles simulta- 
neously lit by the audience in the 
upper tiers: votive offerrmgs to the 
great god Opera who rules in this city 
for two summer months. Take a look 
at the wings of the Arena dose to the 
stage: if there is a full glow then it is 
likely to be an Aida night, but if the 
wauage is low then the opera is an 
unpopular one. 

Aida is, to be sure, present this year, 
but one or two othfr works in the 
repertory are not Verona favourites. 
Verdi's Un baiio in maschera, for 
instance, has been heard in only one 
of the past twenty seasons. But then 
Dan Pasquaie has never been given at 
the Arena and L’elisir da more only 
once, back in 1936. No, this is not a 
great place for humour: it modi 
prefers spectacular dramatic strokes 
sweeping across the massive playing 
area. 

Un balk) in maschera looked at the 
start as though it might collapse 
under the sheer weight of scenery 
during the first act despite a very 
sizeable wattage glow coming from 
the audience. The Governor’s res- 
idence — the opera was given in -the 
Boston version — with its massive 
grey walls looked more like the state 
penitentiary. Ulrica's cave was 
equally sumptuous in glaucous col- 
ours to match her-costume. a .throw-

Pietro ZuffL who combines the roles 
of director and designer, had delib- 
erately built on the darkness so that 
he could light every tight on stage 
shortly before midnight for the 
masked ball itself turning the Arena 
into some heavenly Versailles. The 
audience was duly dazzled. 

Luis Lima, the Riccardo, declined 
to be depressed by the weight of all 
around him, including the massive 
chunks of very un-Bostonian statu- 
ary. The part sounds just right for him 
at this point in his career, with the 
voice carrying enough lightness for 
the Fisherman’s song, “Di tu se 
fedete". and a sufficiency of maturity 
for the Act 111 “Ma se m*6 forza”. 
This was in every way a most 
engaging performance, with the tim- 
bre cutting cleanly across the Arena.

Gustav Kuhn's control of the or-

from Luis Lima on the mercurial 
aspects of Verdi's score.

The Amelia and Renaio both gave 
much more routine interpretations. 
Maria Chiara is an experienced 
Verona hand, knowing exactly where 
to position herself on stage to achieve 
maximum vocal effect, which she 
duly did for “Motto, ma prhna in 
grazia”. but the result was still 
uncomfortably lumpy, with some 
notes swelling and others close to 
disappearance. Silvano Carroll's 
tones are much more evenly, pro-

another to combine the directorial 
and design functions, created a series 
of massive assemblies on stage, 
whose functions were often far from 
clear. Just as Zuffi had numbers of 
spear-carriers hanging around Rio- 
cardo's house in Baiio. so Colonello 
employed an army of topiarists 
snipping away Maddalena di Coig- 
ny's garden: they were later to change 
into revolutionaries. And when 
Maddalena and Andrea do finally 
march off to the scaffold, with 
Giordano’s soaringly defiant duet of 
love, they could, haye been going 


away to yet another well attended 
function. 

Chenier began w ith a very glossy 
cast: Caballe. Carreras. Bruson. This 
month the level is a bit less starry, and 
notable mainly for Eduardo Cianella 
in the title role. After a stirring 
improvriso in Act 1 the audience 
cheered him and Gelmetti into an 
encore, and that left the tenor 
dangerously short of stamina for the 
Act IV poem, which went adrift. But 
in between Cianella presented a poet 
handsome in figure and voice — 
another tenor on the wav up. 

Both Giovanna Casolla and 
Alessandro Cassis as Maddalena and 
Gerard, the soprano and baritone on 
opposite sides of the political spec- 
trum. could have done with more 
vocal projection. Casolla tends to 
graininess in the timbre and Cassis 
could have used a bit more dcclama- . 
tion in “Nemico della patria”. Both 
would surely have sounded better in a 
less demanding space, but here it is 
the big effects that rule. 

A couple of evenings later I 
dropped into a town hall on Lake 
Garda where some aspirant singers 
were showing their paces — entrance 
free and house full. “Forza c 
coraggio!” was the frequent advice of 
the MC as they waded into the Italian 
operatic repertoire. And those words 
sum up just what is needed at Verona. 


uncommonly large num- 
ber of donors arc thanked for 
goods and sen ices supplied to 
the Bush for their admirable 
production of Jacqueline Hol- 
borough's first full-length 
play. The list begins with turf, 
old woodworking tools and a 
Bruce Springsteen T-shin. and 
moves down through trellis 
and vodka, bread, brick sins 
and a green pepper. Large 
branches arc acknowledged, 
cinders, red day. \ermiculrte 
and eventually ferns, a sundial 
and wine-gums. 

Two girls are lying on ihe 
neat garden turf, inches away 
from the audience, when the 
lights go up. Mary is (ailing in 
make herself read a hook and 
Barbara, known as Dog. sun- 
bathes. topless, with her 
I breasts pressed down on the 
grass. The dialogue, after an 
initial qualm, is going to 
centre around well-bred self- 
do ubis. A coloured girl 
bounds in. jumps on the 
sunbaiher and makes olt with 
her Bruce Springsteen shirt. 

Dog crawls and cringes in a 
panic that at first seems out of 
all proportion to the mishap. 
Nobody offers to lend the girl 
any covering until Aggie (Do- 
reen Mamie), glumly imdcing 
back from the duekpond.' ex- 
changes her vest (or the prom- 
ise of bath-soap. We are in a 
women's open prison and the 
girls work in its gardens. The 
play follows the lives of five of 
them through a summer that 
begins with the refusal of 
parole to one of them and ends 
with another's release. 

The author's first one-act 
play, eight years ago. won the 
Koestler Award, given each 
y ear for an artwork created by 
a prisoner. She formed Clean 
Break, a touring company of 
women former prisoners^ in 
the following year and has 
been with them ever since. I 
have not seen her previous 
work for stage or television 
but the titles suggest that her 
prison experience is present in 
all of them. Her knowledge of 
this world within the world is 


dearly comprehensive and 
one accepts the naturalistic 
detail without question. 

Totally convincing also are 
the lambent comments that 
conjure up the pam and worry, 
hut the author is considerably 
more interesting than a docu- 
mentary writer with u good 
ear. Scene after scene reveals 
an ability to let action, charac- 
ter and mood evolve accord- 
ing to their own mysterious 
law s, and the result is drama — 
living, riveting drama. 

The set. designed by Geoff 
Row. is in two parts, the trim 
garden with its sundial and 
v emneuliie path, and the tool- 
shed where the women find a 
refuge from their duties in the 
fruit cages, greenhouses and 
dung-heap. It is in the shed 
that wc first meet the fifth 
woman, known only us Jock, 
an uncouth veteran from Lan- 
ark who bloodies Dog's nose 
at their first encounter 

If this sounds heavy, u is 
just one element m the drama. 
The writing offers five kinds 
of humour: grim Scottish 
jokes, spriteiv nonsense, qui- 
etly comic self-efi: i cement, old 
lag's gloom and nervy wit. 
“He's a changed man since his 
tropical fish died*', is the sort 
of line seldom heard in the 
theatre since the death of Joe 
Orton. 

The actresses respond to 
Simon Stokes's sympathetic 
direction by giving perfor- 
mances that' illuminate their 
author's text. We have the 
fluid jumping movements of 
Suzctte Llewellyn's coloured 
girl, delighting in any comic 
upheaval she sets in motion. 
In Sophie Thompson's Dog 
we see the alarms and quick 
retreats from anything that 
looks like danger, followed by 
a slowly opening smile as she 
fits herself back into company. 
Maggie McCarthy's Jock lets 
oui the seething violence of a 
hard case in abrupt move- 
ments and masterfully blunt 
scorn. Maureen O'Brien gives 
bright little smiles and bright 
little observations, which 
make her revelation of time in 
solitary all the more frighten- 
ing. Sirongly recommended.

colours or to relate to the 
depths of feeling that moti- 
vates it. One might have 
hoped for the tiny details that 
continually emerge and retire 
from the surface of Orchestral 
Piece jA to have glistened 
more, or for the overlapping 
chords and subsequent slow 
staccato exchanges in Orches- 
tral Piece F to have sounded 
more punchy. 

■ Nevertheless the imriii-lay- 
ered beauty of the piece 
survived, helped in no small 
measure by the contributions 
of the soprano Elizabeth j 
.Laurence, who. negotiated -the 
interspersed vocal cycle with 
distinction. -But perhaps she. 
tod. might have used a more 
vivid range of colours. 

Both orchestra and audtr 
ence seemed ' more intensely 
involved in the second half, 
televised later. Iona Brown 
played Walton’s Violin Con- 
certo with admirable presence, 
though once or twice, her 
confidence seemed slightly 
misplaced But she is aboveall 
a lyrical player, and it was that 
quality which dominated her 
reading here, for all the Al- 
liance contained within the 
piece. Downes seemed happy 
to go along with her view, and 
the responses of his players 
were always alcn.

terranean and Berio shows a 
typically Iiaiianate refine- 


thrown himself into a no- 
madic. three-season conduct- 
ing schedule of epic pro- 
portions: over 200 concerts in 
22 countries. It is a life-style 
that seems to symbolize his 
musical personality: utterly 
professional, dependent upon 
an admirable stick technique, 
high-powered in profile, yet 
curiously impersonal and 
given to making carefully 
calculated gestures. If Maazel 
has derided that he best relates 
to orchestras on a “short stay, 
quick results” basis, it also 
occasionally sounds as if he is 
relating similarly to the scores 
he conducts. 

Yet his interpretations fre- 
quently have unrivaled po- 
tency. Even in a heavy-handed 
and often laborious perfor- 
mance of Beethoven's Eighth 
Symphony there were startling 
insights. One instance was at 
the first movement's re- 
capitulation. where Maazel 
reduced the upper-string

Overriding enthusiasm: the Jamaica National Company 

Dance 


It could never have been 
predicted that Mrs Thatcher 
would preside like an Astraea 
over a renaissance of British 
music, but ■ the past seven 
years have proved astonish- 
ingly productive, and the sum- 
mer festival at the South Bank 
is reflecting some of the 
dazzle. Just 24 hours after the 
premiere of Birtwistle's new 
opera, the London Sinfonietta 
were back with a programme 
of new and very new music by 
younger composers. Only the 
two contrasted dawnsc’apes. 
Simon Holt's ominous Era 
madrugada and George Ben- 
jamin's celebratory At First 
Light, had I heard before: the 
others were all works of the 
past year or so. 

Dominic Muldowney's new 
Sinfonietta is an exceedingly 
smart piece, it lakes on the 


rush up in a staccato jazzv 
closure, a gesture that wifi 
often be repeated in xaried 
forms. Then the machine is 
off. It slows for the "second 
subject", marked by solos for 
oboe and viola, and" speeds up 
for the scherzo-cum-develop- 
menu then eases itself towards 
a moment of repose for strings 
with piano and marimba, the 
only passage where the jug- 
gling with tonality almost 
relaxes into concord." But most 
of the recapitulation-finale is 
as tricksy, rhythmically- 
surprising and harmonically 
needling as this work requires. 

The difference from 
Schoenberg, whose parallel 
work seems to hover in the 
wings, is that Muldowncy is 
not sure the game is a serious 
one. But this is not at all a 
frivolous work: he is very- 
serious indeed about the busi- 
ness of playing the game, and 
his own appeal to Stnax insky 
rather than Schoenberg as

Seeing three contrasted dance 
companies over the weekend 
set me thinking about the 
different ways in which they 
made their effects. What 
started it was the thought that 
by all the rules Janette Mul- 


ligan ought not to be suited to 
Juliet. She is so obviously- a 


actually marked triple-forte) 
to allow the cellos' unusual 
domination with theirtnain 
theme. Melodramatic cer- 
tainly. contrived perhaps: but 
this typical Maazel “effect" 
was executed with such tech- 
nical finesse that it was hard to 
resist. 

The scaling down of the 
violins* attack in the Alle- 
gretto. from prim off-the- 
string clarity to a glowing glide 
through the lyrical middle 
passages, was delightful, as 
was (in a- more world-weary 
mood) the fulL ripe tone he 
elicited from the excellent 
boms in the Trio. 

Indeed, the London Sym- 
phony Orchestra responded 
well throughout to his ap- 
proach and the playing in 
Mahler's First Symphony was 
often exhilarating. The open- 
ing bars whispered into 
mysterious life from a su- 
perbly controlled pianissimo: 
the section principals re- 
sponded cxtrovertly in the 
middle movements and there 
was a welcome bravado about 
the strings’ "Viennese" 
glissandos. 

Again there was. at times, a 
feeling that a carefully nur- 
tured pose was being adopted. 
The parodistic dance-hall 
scoops of the third movement, 
for instance, were drooled 


Juliet. She is so obviously a 
healthy, attractive, balanced 
young woman, not an over- 
emotionaJ adolescent girl 
Yet Festival Ballet's Romeo 
and Juliet at the Festival Hall 
was still enjoyable with her in 
ihe role. The explanation is 
that the character, the plot and 
the emotion are all conveyed 
in Ashton's choreography. 
Given a competent, sincere 
performance, the choreog- 
raphy itself will make its 
points. Mulligan danced with 
skill and thoughtfulness, 
strongly supported by Peter 
Schaufuss. and there were

also that, although its own 
school produces many good 
dancers, the Bolshoi can lake 
its pick among many who 
began their careers elsewhere 
In the Soviet Union once they 
have become noted either 
through performances or by- 
winning medals at inter- 
national dance competitions.

haired Georgian beauty, made 
her transfer from Tbilisi to 
Moscow even earlier, whilst

as a sonata allegro and as a

The balance changes in the 
Bolshoi's Spartacus. Yuri 
Grigorovich's choreography 
for this is posier-an. rely ing on 
the blatant repetition of sim- 
ple, even crude patterns. 
Everything depends on the

Irek Mukhamcdov. he is a 
strong, forceful dancer, and 
Alexei Lazarev, who played

dramatic tension with his

The Jcxcl of teaching and 
professional expectation in 
Russia* is such that soloists 
there start from a higher lose 
than here. Even in the Targe

among the men. there arc 
quite a few dancers of a 
technical standard far ahead

sicians and technicians have 
other jobs. What brought 
them together and has kept 
them going for 24 years is love 
of their work and determina- 
tion to find roots for dance in 
their national heritage. 

So it becomes less im- 
portant that their level of 
prowess is. to say the best, 
uneven (the men on the whole 
better than ihe women, al- 
though Arlene Richards has 
an individual quality), that the 
choreography, mostly by their 
founder -and director Rc.\ 
Nettleford. veers between 
various popular idioms, from ! 
reggae iq slightly featureless 
mainstream modern dance, or 
that most of the pieces given 
on Saturday tended towards a 
shapeless pot-pourri form. 
What communicates itself to 
the audience is sheer enthu- 
siasm. without which neither 
skill nor refined choreography- 
can make much effect.

TUC want 
return

ownership 

Continued from page 1 

their power of direction over 
public industries. 

Thirdly, the TUC believes 
there is an opportunity, cur- 
rently being wasted, to make 
more use of public enterprise 
to promote economic expan- 
sion and create jobs. 

In proposing the consumer 
centres, the report suggests 
that they should be financed ! 
by a levy on the profits of the I 
public service industries, and 
governed by boards elected by 
the industry's own consumers. 

The TUC attacks current 
public industry watchdog bod- 
ies .such as the Electricity 
Consumers Council, claiming 
that they don't represent a 
cross-section of consumers 
and tend to be “top down** 
organizations with no effec- 
tive channel for local opinion. 

It believes that they are 
under-resourced, and “lack 
clout" to tackle big 
institutions. 

Other options include a new 
kind of savings called “public 
enterprise securities", to let 
consumers take a financial 
stake in public enterprise and 
make borrowing more flexible 
for the industries themselves. 

The report also has a de- 
tailed section on buying back 
privatized assets. Suggested 
priorities are: 

• Vital national utilities and 
public services, including BT 
and (if privatized) British Gas; 

• Concerns such as the de- 
fence factories, which are cen- 
tral to the defence and security 
of Britain: 

• Key strategic companies, 
such as Britoil. 

“The aim of the opening 
stage should be to exercise the 
maximum control in the pub- 
lic interest for the minimum 
cost in economic resources 
and parliamentary time.** 

On British Telecom, the 
TUC wants shareholders to 
remain as long-term investors 
by exchanging new interest- 
bearing securities for BT 
shares, with a built-in in- 
centive to retain the securities. 
Shareholders should get the 
original offer price only if they 
cash in their securities 
immediately. 


Berlin wall 



A demonstrator kicks a panel from the wall on the East 
German side while (right) others with a West German flag 
taunt communist guards m front of the Brandenburg Gate. 

. . From A Correspondent Bonn 


East Germany delivered a 
strong protest note to the West 
Berlin city administration yes- 
terday over the unprecedented 
weekend incident at the Beilin 
Walk in which as many as 200 
people forced their way into 
East Berlin at the Checkpoint 
Charlie crossing. 

Young demonstrators scaled 
the 9ft-high concrete barrier 

President Reagan called the 
wall an insult to the human 
spirit in an interview with the 
newspaper Bild and said it 
underlined the need to safe- 
guard Western democracy 
(Reuter reports from Bonn). 

on Saturday night, - taunted 
armed communist border 
enards with West German 
flay and slogans, and de- 
stroyed aa East German flag. 

In its protest note the East 
German Foreign Ministry 
called the demonstration a 
serious provocation and a 
criminal act that took place 
under die eyes of West Berlin 


police, the East German news 
agency ADN reported. 

The note said border guards 
had been attacked, then- lives 
and health endangered hr 
missiles, and a door and traffic 
lights at the crossing point 
damaged. It demanded mea- 
sures to halt such actions and 
said West Berlin would be 
responsible for any 
consequences. 

In another incident early 
yesterday a man started a fire 
in front of the Brandenburg 
Gate which spread to a wooden 
catwalk on the eastern side 
and had to be extinguished by 
East German guards. Police 
said the man was bdd briefly 
by British military police. 

The Americans, in whose 
sector Checkpoint Charlie 
lies, had no comment on 
Saturday night's “invasion” 
other than to say that “we're 
pretty much burned to this 
sort of thing." 

The incident came as East . 
and West prepared to engage 
in ideological battle about the 
wall on Wednesday, the 25th 



anniversary of its initial 
-construction. 

West Berlin poflee said that 
on Saturday evening abont 80 
people ran past Checkpoint 
Charlie and climbed over or 
under the barrier a few yards 
into East Berfin. 

. A fire-cracker was thrown 
towards the East German 
guards, who did not react, even 
when about half-an-bour later 
another 70 to 120 joined the 
crowd. Some of them then 
pulled down and destroyed an 
East German flag. 

One man hacked stones 
from the wall and threw them 
at approachhig communist 


guards. Others dapped, sang 
die West German national 
anthem and chanted 
“Deutschland, Deutschland". 

West Berlin police -sealed 
off the Western approaches to 
prevent others from crossing, 
and die East Germans ap- 
pealed to the demonstrators 
through lond-baOers to leave. 

Most had tinned back by 
10pm, except for about 15 who 
the police said appeared to be 
“rather drunk". About an hour 
later they, too, returned. . 

It was suggested yesterday 
that the initiators of the 
incident were the remnants of 
some handreds who had ear- 
lier formed a human rham 


along a section of the wall -at 
the mid of a protest rally. 

At the rally die Mayor of 
West Berlin, Herr Eberhard 
Diepgea, had called on people 
to make die wafl “as perme- 
able as posable" until die day 
when it fell, “which it must 
and will do.” • 

Police said about 4,500 
people took part in the rally 
although the organizers, die 
youth wing of the .governing 
Christian Democratic Union, 
spoke of 12,000. No incidents 
were reported, apart from 
attempts by about 30 people to 
shout down the US Ambas- 
sador to Bonn, Mr Richard 
Burt. . 


■ On Friday the East Berlin 
authorities returned to the 
West a 69-year-oM American, 
:Mr John Runnings, who the 
day before had ctimbed the 
wall, chipped away at the 
round concrete pipe on top and 
then, balancing precariously, 
walked a few hundred yards 
along it before descending a 
ladder provided by an East 
German guard. 

In a. letter, to the. East 
German Government, released 
to -journalists yesterday, fear 
East German ch i nc h activists 
demanded a .liberalization of 
rigid trayel curbs and said the 
wall “cannot be passed over in. 
silence.” . . 


Ministers 
face defeat 
on sex 
education 

Continued from page 1 

as to encourage those pupik yj 
have due • regard to . moral 
considerations and the vaw 
of family life**. '' r : ... 

Mr Chris Patten, iheEduc*. 
lion Minister, struggled to 
defend it in the committee 
stage, but it survived by-ojjg 
one vote. Most MR saidjfej 
the issue was bea dealt wife 
by a circular. 

Mr Giles Radice, labour”) 
chief education ' spokesman 
argued: “The Government has 
given way to the moral right, 
the Lord Buckmasters of tluj 
world and thorn who -believe 
that moral standaidsarefraite 
away like straws in the WmJ 
and that the sin* of Sodom 
and Gomorrah are rampant in 
the land." 

Mr Steve Norris, Conser- 
vative MP for Oxford East 
and a committee member who 
did not vote for the- clause, 
said yesterday: “The Govetn- 
meat is in a hole. Having 
accepted these amendments it 
is difficult to turn these’seai 
moral thoughts into practice.” 

Mr Mark Fisher, a Labour 
frontbench spokesman, said 
yesterday. “We fed that the 
clause wilt not help .teachers 
and parents to provide to- 
gether good sex education for 
the sake of their children ami 
we believe that the cupular is a 
better way to do it 
“This present circular 
seems to be very much along 
the right lines, and to he 
extremely helpful. . 

“We do not believe legisla- 
tion will help and it, could be 
the cause of unnecessaiy. legal 
actions and a lack of con- 
fidence between parents of 
very strong religious convic- 
tions and head teachers.” - 
In the committee he argued 
that the clause was “an open 
invitation ip someone, .like 
Mrs Victoria Gilikk, who may 
feel affronted by a certain 
method of sex education”. 

The Department of Educa- 
tion and Science said -foe 
amendment givin^parentsfoe 
right to excuse -children from 
sex education classes was un* 
necessary, impractical .and in- 
appropriate. Itwould also seta 
precedent for parents who 
wanted to prevent their chil- 
dren being taught other 
subjects.

Nature Notes 


More birds are drifting south. 
Wh calcars that- nested on the 
hillsides are appearing on com- 
mons and playing fields. Whin- 
chats. which are dose relatives 
of the wheatear and have a 
similar bobbing movement, are 
arriving on bushy sketches of 
the coast. Greenshahks from the 
moors have come down to feed 
at the edges of lakes: they.- are , 
large, -silvery, wading birds with 
green legs, and have a dear, 
ringing cry. 

The commonest noise in the 
woods is the insistent calling of 
small flocks, of titmice and 
nuthatches. Coal tits are particu- 
larly restless and VocaL. con- 
stantly fliuingfrom one tree to 
another, whispering and whis- 
tling as they go. A few wrens are 
still singing - this is the end of 
their summer song - while 
robins are beginning to take up 
their winter territories, arid one 
or two ofthose arc singing again. 

A widespread flower just now 
is -duckweed, which has five 
white petals, each divided into 
two, so they look like. 10. 
Greater duckweed, a rarer spe- 
cies, grows by streams; some- 
times it is found near yd low 
loosestrife, a tail plant -whose 
dark yellow flowers have bright 
red stamens. Acorns are 
developing on the oaks, but 
most of them are still flat cups, 
with the fruit . scarcely rising 
above the brim. DJM

' Tlie week of the Treasury's

higher. 

The 10-year notes, which 
yielded 732 per cent on 
Thursday, July 31, finished 
the auction at an average 
<4 7X1 per cent (with 60 per 
cent of the auction going for a 
yield of 7.48 per cent). 

JBot by Thursday, August 7, 
this issue was selling for a 


yield of 736 per cent,.whkh at

Some dealers said the Japa- 
nese bought a peat amount . of 
the aoctiou, after big pur- 
chases of US agencies' issues 
in the last week. (But the 
Japanese were under instruc- 
tions from the finance ministry 
not to divulge anything about 
their purchases). ' 

-Others thought the New- 
York dealers had been left 
with a huge slice of the issue. . 
-This time it does not appear 
the Japanese have fleeced the 
WaU Street dealers who, in the 
May auction, believing the 
Japanese would have to sell 
back a good deal of their 
purchases of the 30-year^ 
bought wads of the 10-year, 
only to find the Japanese 
refusing to sell the 30-years 
and leaving Wall Street in a 
terrible short squeeze. 

Goldman Sachs is one firm 
wjuch is said to have lost up to 
$100 Bullion in this short 
squeeze.' 

,0n Monday, July 28, the 
Japanese organized a bear 
raid on the New York bond 
market, driving yields up 
sharply. 

_It was feared by Wall Street 
traders, who feB before the 
onslaught, that the Japanese 
would follow through on the 
Tuesday, possibly attempting 
to drive the yield on the 30-

However, there was no fol-

bemused by this, thinking the 
Japanese had lost a great 
opportunity to massacre the 
bond market in preparation for 
the auction. 

And the Opec rumbling did 
not help the Treasury auction. 

But this was as nothing 
compared to the damage 
caused by Mr Beryl Sprinkei, 
the chairman of the Council of 
Economic Advisers. ■ 

In the middle of the auction, 
he produced a forecast of 4 per 
cent growth in the second half 
of . this year, followed by 43 
per cent growth next year, 
accompanied by some increase 
in short-term interest rates 
and inflation. 

The consensus in the bond 
pits was that Mr Sprinkei had

Standard bank rescue 
trio ‘to be directors’ 


by Richard Thomson, Banking Correspondent. 


The three businessmen who 
rescued Standard Chartered 
from the bid by Uoyds Bank 
last month are believed to 
have accepted -invitations 
from • Standard to become 
directors. But speculation 
continues-over the intentions 
they may have for the bank 
.which announces its half year 
results in a week's time. 

Sir Yue Kong Pao, the Hong 
Kong entrepreneur, holds the 
largest stake with 15 per cent 
followed by Mr Robert Holmes 
a Court, chairman of - Bell 
Group, with more than 8 
per cent. Tan Sri Khoo Teck. 
PuaL a Singapore business- 
man. holds 5 per cent 

Sir Yue Kong and Tan Sri 
Khoo are believed to favour 


floating off the more profit- 
able parts of the bank, such as 
the far eastern and US opera- 
tions. Mr Holmes a Court may 
favour keeping the -bank, 
which receiitiy granted him a 
£1 billion credit facility, 
intact 

'Standard has been consid- 
ering the possibility of gaining 
separate quotations for dif- 
ferent parts of the group. 

There were suggestions in 
the City last week that Tan Sri 
Khoo had been negotiating to 
buy Sir Yue Kong’s stake. Tan

Accor plans £60m hotels expansion 



By Derek Harris, Industrial Editor 


Accor, the French-based 
hotel and catering group 
which claims to be the ninth 
largest operation of its kind in 
the world, intends to expand 
its British hotel chain to 100 
or more. It Is already bidding 
for motorway service areas 
and has plans for a separate 
restaurant chain. 

Best known for its Sofitel 
Norotel and Ibis hotels, 
Accor plans to have at least 
20 more of these within three 
to four years, involving a total 
investment of op to £60 
million. 


But Accor's strategy also 
calls for the establishment in 
Britain of between 50 and 100 
low-bndget hotels now at the 
pilot stage in France. The 
British start-Hp is expected 
by the end of next year. 

Sofitel is Accor's most up- 
market ehain and is aiming 
not only at a central London 
flagship but is in talks for a 
new hotel in Bristol said Mr 
Peter Charles, chairman of 
Accor UK. He added: “Edin- 
burgh is another possibility 
bat not Birmingham or Man- . 
Chester which wQI be well 


supplied with five-star 
hotels.” 

Accor so far has in Britain 
six Noiotels. which it wholly 
owns, and one Ibis at 
Heathrow which is con- 
sortium financed. Noiotels 
are in the three to four star 
bracket while Ibis falls more 
into the two- star. 

A further Ibis will be added 
next year near Easton station. 
. Construction has also 
started on Ibis hotels in 
Greenwich and Manchester 
and on Novotels at Stevenage, 
York, Ipswich and Taunton. 

Accor is now moving to- 
wards a series of deals in 
which consortiums, often of 
local investors, will be in- 
volved.. Accor usually takes a 
small, percentage stake. 

Although the Ibis hotels 
are budget-priced at between 
£23 and £24 a night — 
implying a building cost of up 
to £24.000 a bedroom — the 
experimental chain planned 
to be introduced in Britain is 
likely to. offer a room accom- 
modating up to three people 
for £10 a night 

Mr Charles said: “Formula 
One will be a one-star chain. 


Saatchi seeks quote on 
Tokyo stock market 


By Our City Staff 


Saatchi * & Saatchi. the 
world’s largest . advertising 
agency, has been holding talks 
with a Japanese securities 
house, in the hope of gaining a 
stock market listing in Tokyo. 

The company’s inter- 
national business has ex- 
panded rapidly and Saatchi 
wants to attract a wider base of 
shareholders, although no 
final decision has been made 
to go for a listing. 

A share quote in Tokyo will 
help the company's aim of 
building up business in Japan. 

Saatchi has been rapidly 
expanding in the United 
States with the purchase of 
Ted Bates and Backer & 


Spievqgel. both American 
advertising agencies, this year 
and has had a share listing on 
the Nasdaq over-the-counter 
market in New York since 
1983. 

A quotation on all three of 
the world's largest stock mar- 
kets may also help the 
company’s share price, which 
slumped by more than 250p 
after the purchase of Ted 
Bates for £297 million. 

Saatchi announced in May a 


67 per cent rise in half-year 
profits

Brussels and 
US resolve 
fruit dispute 


Brussels (AP-Dow Jones) - 
The European Economic 
Community and the United 
States reached an agreement 


in principle yesterday, resolv- 
fru 


ing a lengthy citrus fruit trade 
dispute over the community's 
preferential trading arrange- 
ment with Mediterranean 
countries- 

Mr Clayton Yeutter, the US 
special trade representative, 
said: “Both sides are delighted 
to have a 16 year-old trade 
dispute behind us.” 

The agreement, details of 
which are expected tomorrow, 
appears to resolve a US com- 
plaint that the EECs trading 
arrangement discriminates 
against American citrus fruit 
producers. 


ing arrange mom with the 
Mediterranean. 

According to a community 
official, the US has agreed to 
recognize the political and 
economic value of the 
arrangement and not to chal- 
lenge it legally under inter- 
national trading rules. 

In exchange, the Reagan 
Administration has gained a 
trade concession from the 
community, the official said. 

Later, in a communique, 
the officials said that both 
sides will implement a senes 
of reciprocal measures which 
will further liberalize trade. 


The agreement is expected 


to be ratified by the i: 
member states today. Both 
sides will then dismantle pu- 
nitive tariff increases imposed 
on each other's agriculture 
trade last November. 

The Reagan. Administration 
is expected to unblock a steel 
accord negotiated this year, 
allowing community produc- 
ers to ship more semi-finished 
steel products to the US, 

Mr Yeutter said: “We be- 
lieve the agreement is well- 
balanced, satisfactory and 
meets the needs of both 
parties.” 

The tariff increases that are 
expected to go include pu- 
nitive US duties on imports of 
community pasta and pu- 
nitive community duties on 
imports of American walnuts 
and lemons. 

But the centrepiece of the 
agreement concerns the status 
of the EECs preferential trad- 


According to the commu- 
nique. the two sides have 
found a modus operandi for 
reaching a prompt and mutu- 
ally satisfactory solution on 
pasta, which has been the 
subject of a long-standing 
dispute. 

The community official de- 
clined to say whether the it has 
agreed to immediately reduce 
the level of its export subsidies 
on pasta as pan of an overall 
deal that includes the dis- 
mantling of punitive US pasta 
duties. 

But he said the two sides 
have set a deadline of July 1. 
next year for a resolution of 
ihe problem. Mr \ cutter said 
the agreement augured well 
for the future of US- EEC trade 
relations. 

In reaching an agreement 
both the US and the EEC 
avoided a new round of trade 
retaliation which had threat- 
ened to poison the atmosphere 
of preparatory talks for a new 
round of world trade talks. 
These are scheduled to take 
place in Ltruguay from 
September 15 to 20.

However Touche intends to

Unctad calls for a loosening

ANALYSIS 


Vendor platings reveal need 
for capital issues rethink 


Car rental 
market 
likely to 
decline 


The spate of vendor placings 
and vendor rights issues is 
making it increasingly clear 
that the regulatory environ- 
ment surrounding secondary 
capital issues is going to need a 
rethink. 

The trouble with vendor 
placings is that they seem to 
please no-one except the issu- 
ing companies and possibly 
their merchant bankers. 
Shareholders are deprived of 
their rights and they reduce 
the Bank of England's ability 
to regulate capital issues. 

Vet the accounting stan- 
dard. SSAP 23 positively en- 
courages acquisitions for 
shares, surely an unintended 
effect. 

The Stock Exchange set out 
its position on the subject in 
last week's press release on 
notations and pre-emption. It 
has decided that there will be 
no limits on vendor placings. 
except that large issues will be 
disallowed if the enlarged 
group would be treated as a 
new applicant 

Without question, vendor 
placings ride rough-shod over 
the pre-emption rights of in- 
dividual shareholders. But 
faced with a fait accompli that 
they arc now endorsed by the 
Stock Exchange as a legitimate 
way of raising money, the 
large institutions have' come 
up with the “clawback" 
device. 

This ensures that sharehold- 
ers can apply for the issue in 
proportion to their 
shareholdings. 

There is no implication here 
that the institutional 
shareholders approve of ven- 
dor placings. Rather, clawback 
is seen as a way of salvaging 
some shareholder rights out of 
the mess. 

Mr Jim Findlay, managing 
director of Prudential Port- 
folio Managers, believes that 
"the rights issue route is the 
best way forward.** He stresses 
the importance of keeping 
shareholder involvement in 
thcircompaniesand not going 
the American route of 
shareholders becoming di- 
vorced from management 

Vendor placings also ad- 
versely affect the tax position 
of insurance company and 
other funds. In an ordinary 
rights issue, the nil-paid rights 
can be transferred between 
funds without attracting cap- 
ital gains tax so long as (he 
proceeds are less than 5 per 
cent of the total holding. 

Under the capital gains tax 
pooling arrangements, stock 
acquired in a vendor placing 
cannot be moved around the 
funds without incurring 
potentially enormous tax 
liabilities. 

In its role as supervisor of 
capital issues in Britain, the 
Bank of England must be 
becoming increasingly wor- 
ried. The Government has 
supervised all capital raising 
activ ities in Britain one way or 



IlnrTh-, 1 1 l.i/niil 

Karan rtantoarj 


another since 1939. In 1967, 
the power passed to the Bank 
of England which now ex- 
ercises control over the raising 
of capital via the government 
broker. 

The government broker 
controls all new issues and 
secondary issues by requiring 
the issuing companies to seek 
his consent as to the timing of 
the issue. 

The list of pending issues 
has become known as the 
queue, ihe purpose of which is 
to maintain an orderly mar- 
ket. and to make sure that 
government funding policy is 
not interfered with by, for 
example, so many company 
issues that it reduces the 
appetite for gilts, or 
privatizations. 

To avoid bunching, the 
government broker requires 
the issuing company to seek 
liming consent for capital 
issues. He will ensure that 


announcements of issues do 
not coincide with each other 
or clash with Government 
issues, that the issues them- 
selves are not too large and 
that there are not too many of 
them. 

Having allowed through on 
the nod what was expected to 
be the occasional vendor plac- 
ing, with no need to wait in the 
queue, what began as a trickle 
is becoming a veritable flood 
of queue-jumpers. 

Mr Gareth Jones of the 
Association of Corporate 
Treasurers said: “The UK 
securities market has been 
appropriated by the govern- 
ment. whose capital raising 
activities are much greater in . 
relation to the size of the 
market than the US 
government's or West 
Germany’s.” 

Things happen the other 
way round in the less- regu- 
lated US market. In Britain 


Merger and acquisition 


That merger accounting, as 
opposed to acquisition 
accounting, is allowed at all in 
Britain is something of an 
anomaly. In the United States, 
for example, all takeovers and 
mergers must be accounted for 
as acquisitions. 

The key differences between 
the two approaches are: 

• in acquisition accounting, 
where A acquires B, all of B's 
assets are revalued at the date 
of the aeqaisidon for incor- 
poration into A's accounts. If 
the price paid by A is greater 
than the value of the assets, 
then a goodwill account is 
created, which most then be 
written off. either against 
distributable reserves or profit 
in the profit and loss account. 

• In merger accounting the 


two companies simply merge 
their balance sheets and profit 
and loss accounts as if they 
had always been together. 
Past years are restated, and 
book values are unchanged. 
There is therefore no goodwill, 
and the distributable reserves 
in both companies are avail- 
able for the shareholders in 
the combined group. 

The Companies Act 1981 
allows merger accounting, but 
it was left to the accountants to 
come np with a standard to 
govern practice. SSAP 23 
appeared in April last year. 
Acquisitions for shares may be 
accounted for as mergers if 
certain criteria are fulfilled. 
All other amalgamations must 
be accounted for as 
acquisitions.

The car rental market

year in sales, is likely to shrink 
this year, hit by declines in the 
leisure sector and business 
users. 


registration" wherby blocks of 
shares are on the SECs shelf 
for issue when required, but 
bunching of issues is more 
likely lo occur. 

Mr Tim Hazel!, analyst at 
the brokers, Phillips & Drew 
said: “If the market is weak, 
there may be only six inches of 
secondary issue announce- 
ments in the weekly news- 
paper, Barrons. If the market 
is strong, it will be three times 
that on a conservative 
estimate." 

Meanwhile, the Accounting 
Standard Committee is in 
danger of bei ng acutely embar- 
rassed by abuse of its standard 
governing accounting for ac- 
quisitions and mergers, SSAP 
23. 

As a general principle, 
accounting rules should be 
neutral as far as business 
decision-making is concerned. 
But by allowing merger 
accounting, SSAP 23 pos- 
itively encourages the use of 
equity rather than cash for 
making acquisitions. 

The acquiring company ob- 
tains considerable advantages 
— not least because it need not 
create a goodwill accounL It 
therefore avoids reducing its 
earnings while the goodwill is 
being written off. 

Through the use of vendor 
placings, issuing companies 
are driving a coach and horses 
through SSAP 23. Vendor 
placings are in serious danger 
of becoming an artificial de- 
vice to allow companies to 
merger accounL 

The standard is open to 
abuse, and it needs to be 
lightened up. Indeed, the law 
needs to be lightened up. But 
the processes of the law, and 
indeed of the Accounting 
Standards Committee can be 
ponderous and slow. 

The big bang will not wait 
But what has been revealed is 
that companies and their advi- 
sors are only too ready to 
exploit loopholes. 

What is alio being revealed 
is that every time one set of 
rules is changed, it affects 
other parts of the regulatory 
framework. It is a bit like 
■trying to rearrange the bricks 
in a wall. If some of the bricks 
are removed, other parts of 
the structure start to fall down. 
How much easier it would be 
if we could start again with a 
new walL 


One of the few growth areas ! 
is renting prestige cars such as , 
Porsches. said Mr John How- 
ard. managing director of 1 
Hertz UK. one of Britain's top 
three car renters. 


He added: “It is in the 
South-east that the prestige 
cars are in demand and the 
City of London has a lot to do 
with iL We are running at up 
to 500 rentals a month, double 
the rate we had been seeing." 


Hertz, which claims to be 
the world's largest car rental 
operation, is now part of 
United Airlines. Its main 
competitors in Britain are 
European Avis and Swan 
National. 


The drop in the number of 
American visitors . including 
business travellers, in the 
wake of the terrorism scares 
earlier this year, compounded 
by the weaker buying power of 
the American dollar, hit the j 
leisure sector in car rental J 
badly. 


Mr Howard said: "The 
Hertz leisure product out of 
the United States was down 20 i 
per cent earlier this year and 
the total market was further 
down. But there has been a j 
resurgence in July and Hertz is | 
just about getting back to the ; 
big volumes seen in the simi- i 
lar period of last year." I 


There was also a sharp 
decline in business usage in 
May and that sector generally 
was probably down by be- 
tween 5 and 6 per. cenL he 
said. 

British companies had been 
cutting back on car rental for 
several months, so he was 
cautious about prospects for 
any growth in this sector this 
year. 


The leisure sector for the car 
rental industry overall was 
likely to be down this year. 
Bui Hertz was set lo beat last 
year's results because there 
had been offsets in the leisure 
sector such as growth in the 
number of travellers from 
Europe, Mr Howard said 
Hertz was also making further 
inroads into the half of the car 
rental market which has been 
in the hands oflocal garages. 


Carol Ferguson 


And it had attacked the 
business market with what it 
claimed was the best service in 
the industry. Hertz believes 
there is a group of business 
users willing to pay for 
quality.

GILT-EDGED 


No justification 
for high yields 


When the annual inflation 
rate was Iasi at the present 
figure of 2'A percent in 1967. 
the yield on long gilts was 
about 6.9 per cenL In con- 
trasL typical current yields on 
long gilts now stand over 2 !6 
per cent higher at a level of 
about 9.5 to 9.75 per cent 
If inflation remains at its 
current level, then the real 
rate of return on long gilts 
would be about 7 per cent - a 
generous return by any stan- 
dards. So an observer may 
well ask: "What’s wrong with 


the market gels of a change in 
policy, or a problem with 
implementation of policy, is a 


sudden surae of gilt sales by 
the Bank or England. 

Just such a surge has in fact 
recently taken place. The 
money supply figures for the 
month to mid-July show that 
the Government sold £1.2 
billion more gilts than was 
necessary to fund the P5BR. 
including calls on previously 
issued stocks. It tried to sell 
even more gilts during that 
month by announcing an 
extremely badly received 
tender of Treasury 856% 2007 
stock, but the issue flopped 
and is still overhanging the 

markeL 

This behaviour provides 
the market background to the 
discussion in the past two 
weeks' contributions to this 
column about what the objec- 
tives of official policy ac- 
tually are. In November 1985 
the Chancellor formally 
abandoned the official policy 
of “overfunding", that is, 
selling more gilts than was 
necessary to finance the 
PSBR, as a means of control- 
ling the money supply. 

An unwanted side-effect of 
the previous policy was a 
huge build-up of commercial 
bills of exchange in the Bank 
of England. When the Gov- 
ernment sold the extra gifts, it 
created money market short- 
ages which it relieved by 
buying bills. This accumula- 
tion of bills was getting so out 
of hand that the policy would 
have had to have been aban- 
doned anyway. 

However, the Batik of En- 
gland has also discovered a 
clever indirect way of provid- 
ing assistance to the money 
markets. This involves lend- 
ing money to Local Authori- 
ties via the Public Works 
Loans Board, who then give 
inadvertent assistance to the 
money market by repaying 
bank loans or making 
deposits. 

In March and April the 
authorities' desire for this 
cheap finance was so ardent 
that the ceiling of £35 billion 
on these loans was in danger 
of being breached. So. in a 
last-minute amendment to 
the Finance Acl the ceiling 
was raised to £42 billion. 


thegilt-edged market?" 

The answer seems to be 
thaL even though most trad- 
ers in ihe market recognise, 
that it does look cheap, 
bearing in mind the prospects 
for inflation, there are all 
sorts of real or apparent 
problems in the short term. 

The first set of problems 
relates to the currency and 
oil. In July 1985. sterling, 
having traded for four 
months very dose to the level 
of 76 on the exchange rate 
index, suddenly drifted 
downwards, prompting the 
usual rash of bearish 
commentaries. 

The foil in the currency 
does mean that with a lag, 
inflation is likely to rise from 


its current cyclical low. How 
ever, the effect will not be 
very great because sterling is 
still strong against the dollar 
in which most commodity 
prices are denominated. The 
fall in sterling could not 


justify the current premium 
of dll vidds over inflation. 


of gill yields over inflation. 

The principal effect of the 
fall in sterling on demand for 
gilts has been to mute de- 
mand from Japanese inves- 
tors. who are by for the major 
source of overseas interest. In 
yen terms, the foil of the 
pound from Y270 to Y230 
has wiped out mosL if not alL 
gains Japanese investors have 
made in the sharp rise in gilts 
in the first quarter ofl 986. 

Oil worries are another 
potential source .of un- 
certainty — but even here, the 
recent Opec oil price agree- 
ment must help sentiment 
Certainly the Chancellor will 
be quite content with the 
current level of oil prices. 
Given the buoyancy of tax 
revenues reflecting both past 
and present economic 
growth, oil prices around 
these levels could lead to a 
considerable undershoot on 
the current Public Sector 


Borrowing Requirement tar- 
get of £7 billion. 


Another more nebulous 
concern is confusion 
surrounding the objectives of 
Government's monetary pol- 
icy. The problem here is that 
it does not' spoon-feed the 
marker with information 
about its objectives (in con- 
trast to the US Federal Re- 
serve Board). It can often 
happen that the first inkling 


These technical manoeu- 
vres do not signal yet a 
further change of policy. 
They do mean, however, that 
overfunding can come back 
without a rise in the bill 
mountain. 


Alternatively, the bill hold- 
ings can be reduced, as they 
have been, and then a bout of 
overfunding can follow later 
which rebuilds the holdings,, 
as dearly- happened in July. 
The Government Iras now 
greater freedom of action. 

As the money supply, mea- ' 


sured by sterling M3, is still 
growing at I9 !m per cent a 
year, the Government must 
be sorely tempted to resort to 
at least temporary 
overfunding. However, its 
recent actions in the market 
arc still just consistent with 
the officially declared policy 
of no-overfunding, so for the 
time being it must be given 
the benefit of the doubL 

Another fact which would 
be regarded as going against 
the market is the political 
uncertainty arising from the 
next General Election. Most 
traders would expect either 
higher gilt sales or higher 
inflation, or both, to arise 
from any alternatives to the 
present Government's poli- 
cies. (It is fair to say that 
worries about this do not 
appear to be a major factor in 
the markeL although perhaps 
they should be.) 

Apart from the rather neg- 
ative arguments considered 
above, there are many good 
reasons for buying. Public 
spending is under controL 
There is more likely to be an 
undershoot than an over- 
shoot on the PSBR target of 
£7 billion, especially if the 
sterling price of oil remains at 
present levels. 

The current yield margin of 
about 2 percent of UK bonds 
over US bonds is quite high 
on the history of the past two 
years. The Plaza Accord, 
which is likely to lead to 
continuing moves to boost 
the world economy by the 
concerted international 
lowering of short-term in- 
terest rates, is still intact and 
is unlikely to rekindle world 
inflation, in today's disinfla- 
tionary climate. 

Many factors that are bear- 
ish for equities, such as 
worries about the pace of 
economic growth both in the 
UK and worldwide, should 
be good for bonds. 

In terms of absolute value, 
bonds worldwide are hardly 
reflecting the tremendous 
progress made against infla- 
tion over the past few yeans. 
In the UK. conditions are 
particularly favourable be- 
cause of the low level of 
public borrowing compared 
to the US or Japan. 

From a medium-term 
perspective, in its obsession 
with guessing what the UK 
authorities are going to do , 
nexL the market does seem to 
be ignoring the fun- 
damentals. To revert to the 
question asked at the outset - 
what's wrong with the gilt- 
edged market? The answer 
seems to be: nothing that can 
justify the current high level | 
of yields relative to inflation.

Industrial boom in South-east 


By Derek Harris, Industrial Editor 


Industry in the South-east is 
still bucking the national trend 
with a wide range of com- 
panies reporting rising orders 
and outpuL The claim comes 
from Mr Frank 
Middeihwaite. chairman of 
the south eastern regional 
council of the Confederation 
of British Industry, whose 
recent quarterly trends survey 
showed that — taking the 
country as a whole — manu- 


facturing was in the doldrums 
although there was some 
expectation that output would 
pick up, probably about the 
turn of the year. 

Mr Micklethwaite said: 
"Business is good for many 
firms in KenL Surrey and 
Sussex. Right across the re- 
gion firms in a wide range of 
industries, including electron- 
ics, communications, comput- 
ers, packaging and paper and 


board are reporting that orders 
and output are up." 

Patchy industrial perfor- 
mance outside the South-east 
accounted for the national 
picture. 

One South-east company 
found that while it could sell 
well in its own region the' 
further north and west it 
penetrated the worse business 
became.

One of the most under- 
researched areas on the USM 
is the property sector but there 
are a number of companies 
that have chosen to use the 
secondary market as a route to 
raising capital which has still 
succeeded in attracting 
considerable interest. 

The background to the di- 
rect property market over the 
last fiveyears has been diScuh 
because qf the poor commer- 
cial rental growth in the 
aftermath of the 1980/81 
recession. Large amounts of 
industrial and office spaa 
were available in the early 
1980s* much of which was 
perceived _ as increasingly 
obsolescent while the change 
in sentiment towards inflation 
and' the need for the tra- 
ditional inflation hedge which 
property investment has al- 
ways provided also under- 
mined . institutional 
competence. 

The amount of available 
industrial and office space has 
however begun to decline 
since 1983 and this has pro- 
vided the opportunity for 
young property development 


• BESTWOOD: The company 
is to buy Property Building & 
Maintenance (London). PBM is 
a private company with an 
annual turnover of £L2 million 
and is in the maintenance, 
refurbishment and specialist, 
dean rag of commercial property 
in the Greater London area. The 
vendors ofPBM have warranted 
that pretax profits for 1986 will 
be not less than £400,000. 

• MORGAN CRUCIBLE: The 
company has bought the 
remainder of Moriynn Ceramics 
from Ceramo NZ. Moriynn’s 
sales in 1986 will be about 
AusJ25 million (£10.35 
million). 

• GRIQUALAND EXPLORA- 
TION & FINANCE: Half-year 


companies who sell on their 
develop merits on completion 
to fund their next projecis and 
whose, profits are primarily 
derived from the develop- 
ments. not from rental in- 
come. 

For these entrepreneurial 
companies a USM listing has 
particular advantages. It pro- 
vides the ability to finance 
future acquisitions with the 
issue of paper and the means 
to incentivize key members of 
the management team as for 
all public companies, but also 
of particular importance to a 
cash hungry property com- 
pany, it enables the founder 
shareholders to retain a 
significant stake, in their busi- 
ness while attracting; an ade- 
quate amount -of outside 
capital- 

The most successful prop- 
erty stock floated on the USM 
has recently graduated to afiifl 
listing by means of a- reverse 
takeover. Clayform Properties 
joined the USM in April. 1985 
with a track, record which 
showed the management's 
ability to develop major retail 
and hi-tech developments- An 


to June 30. Net pretax income 
. R9. IS. million (£2.36 million), 
against R9.7S million. Turnover 
R41.77 million (R43J2 mil- 
lion). Interim dividend 7J$ cents 
(10 cents). Earnings per share 18 
cents (22.6 cents). . 

• JW SPEAR & SONS: Half- 
year to June 30. Turnover £3.54 
million (£3.23 million). Pretax 
loss £80,000 (profit £35.000). 
Loss per share l-2p (earnings 
0.5pX The board is expecting a 
higher increase in turnover Tor 
the second halt leading to a 
“satisfactory result** for 1986 as 
a whole. 

• YOUGHAL CARPETS: Pre- 
tax loss for 1 985 lr£1.43 million 
(£L3 million), against a loss of 
In£1.33 million. Turnover 


-ambitious bid for the depart- 
ment' store group Owen Owen 
for the purpose of redevelop- 
ment was thwarted last sum- 
mer by a counter offer from 
Ward White but the group 
made good progress with its 
own development programme 
especially .the Schofield Shop- 
ping Centre in Leeds which 
will cover over 250.000 sq ft. 

In June the company an- 
nounced an agreed mercer 
with Samuel Properties whlot 
valued Samuels at £86 mil- 
lion. The acquisition provides 
Clayform with the opportu- 
- nity to increase its asset base 
so that a greater proportion of 
its developments can be re- 
tained and financed . in- 
ternally. There is perhaps an 
irony that a company whose 
shares have appreciated be- 
cause it has been a property 
trader and has avoided the 
dullness of rental income 
stocks should seek to turn 
itself into such a vehicle as it 
matures. It will however be 
better equipped to withstand 
any downturn in the develop- 
ment cycle. 

At an earlier stage of 


Ir£4L2 million (Tr£40.77 mil- 
lion)- Loss per share 2.8 d (5.6p). 
Half-year to June 28. 1986: 


Half-year to June 28, 1986: 
Pretax profit Ir£23,000 (loss 
WE497.000). Turnover U£21.76 
million (Ir£22. ] ! million). Earn- 
ings per share 0.05p (loss 23p). 

• REA BROTHERS GROUP: 
(enlarged group): Six months to 
June 30. Pretax profit £1.16 
million (£843,000). Earnings per 
share 3.02p (2.02p). The board 
intends to declare an interim 
dividend ofOASpas soon as the 

reor ganiz ation of die enlarged 
group has been completed and it 
has sufficient distribution 
reserves.

development is Brookmouni 
which joined the USM in 
January this year. The Group 
has principally three invest- 
ment properties - namely 
large shopping centres located 
in Northern Ireland which 
offers a source of revenue and 
cashflow from which the 
group can finance develop- 
ment projects either directly 
or jointly with partners. Major 
projects include the 
redevelopment of the 
Brooklands Race Circuit to 
include industrial retail office 
and leisure schemes arid a 
60.000 sq ft office develop- 
ment at Uxbridge. 

The majority of the £2.1 
million gross profit in the year 
to March 1986 came from 
rental income but this balance 
is likely to shift as more 
development projects get 
underway. At 290p the shares 
stand at a premium to net 
asset value of 221p but it is 
unlikely to move to a 
discount.

Borne concentrates 
minds of the beerage 


As they head for the grouse moors, the 
brewers have more on iheir minds 
-than the birds. In recent momJis, the 
brewing industry has had some 
powerful shocks to the system. The 
predatory drive of outsiders like John 
Elliott and Lord Hanson have threat- 
ened the slants quo , but the unkindest 
cut of all is the decision of Sir Gordon 
Borrie, Director General of Fair 
Trading, to ask the Monopolies and 
Mergers Commission to investigate 
the industry. 

In the two years the investigation 
will take, the brewers will have their 
work cut out to persuade the MMC 
that, the structure of the industry, held 
together by the tied house system, 
should not be reformed in a radical 
manner. If they faiL the practices and 
habits of a commercial lifetime might 
have to be abandoned. 

The brewers have a great deal to 
lose and they can be relied upon to de- 
fend their estate to the last drop of tied 
beer. Through their well-fortified 
trade association, the Brewers’ Soci- 
ety, they have moved quickly to retain 
the seasoned services of Jeremy 
Leaver, QC. They have also set up a 
high-level defence committee under 
the leadership of Ian Prosser, heir- 
apparent to Sir Derek Palmar at Bass 
and the industry's most prominent 
intellectual. He is thought to be the 
best qualified man to take on those 
clever chaps at the MMC. 

Alongside him will be Sir Derrick 
Holden-Brown, chairman of Allied- 
Lyons, Allen Sheppard, head of the 
Watney-Truman division of Grand 
Metropolitan, and Anthony Fuller, 
the next chairman of the Brewers* 
Society, and spokesman for the 
“small” brewers. • 

Sir Derrick is a hardened as well as a 
polished performer. He is currently 
undergoing the MMC treatment (the 
report on Elders' bid for Allied should 
be with the Secretary of State next 
month). Allen Sheppard is another 
shrewd choice, for two reasons. He is 
tough and determined. And Grand 
Metropolitan's vigorous competitive 
discounting of beer prices helped 
persuade the demon Borrie that the 
industry's price structure is too high 
and at least bears examination. 

The brewers tried to deflect Sir 
Gordon by pointing out that the 
industry had been investigated before, 
at great cost in management time. 

There have been two major in- 
quiries in the last 20 years, by the 
MMC in the late 1960s, and the 
European Commission in the early 


.ADVERTISEMENT. 


1980s. The brewers claim that these 
led to significant changes. In practical 
terms, it is hard to see much impact 
Not surprisingly, perhaps, because 
both inquiries concluded that the tied 
estate system was wrong because it 
restricted consumer choice and kept 
prices up. but it was so entrenched 
that a major effort of political will 
would be needed to make any 
fundamental change. 

Having identified the lied house as 
the chief reason why the price of beer 
was so high.ihe MMC suggested a 
series of pub swaps to reduce the level 
of regional concentration of pub 
ownership. The brewers happily 
complied. 

Since then, the real price ofbeer has 
risen by about 1 per cent a year. 

The EEC investigation focused 
largely on consumer choice. Its 
recommendations did result in a 
loosening of the tic for tenants only on 
wines and spirits — again to the relief 
of the brewers. Spirits brands not 
ow-ned by the brewers now have better 
distribution in tenanted houses than 
in managed houses. Nonetheless, the 
leading brands are still not as widely 
available in tenanted as in free houses. 

Furthermore, the focus on spirits 
meant that other beverages such as 
beer, cider, and soft drinks were 
unaffected. Less than 1 per cent of 
bitter sold in tied pubs is produced by 
a brewer other than the brewer owning 
the pub. The charge against the 
brewers is thus that they still exercise 
virtually complete control over choice 
of brands. 

The brewers argue that if the tie 
were weakened or abolished, the 
choice of brands would actually be 
more restricted. This is a doubtful 
claim, since existing brands that are 
popular would probably thrive in a 
more competitive environment. As 
for the survival of local brands, the 
brewers have been compelled to 
preserve regional ales because of 
consumer pressures. 

High prices, high costs, falling sales, 
and tiny exports sill point to the need 
for change in the industry. If the 
Brewers' Society is as confident as it 
says that there is no case to answer, or 
if there is a case, it has the answer, it 
should not lament “the cost of 
management time” involved in the 
MMC investigation. Whether through 
the agency of the commission or other 
means like takeovers, the industry is 
in a phase of inevitable change. The 
discipline of having to think about 
fundamentals can do no harm.

New long range air defence [nuclear 
radar ready for launch proof 

l the Famborongfa Air Show GOGGLES 


At the Famborongh Air Show 
from Angnsi 31 to September 7 
Plessey will show for the 
first time its new AR-325 
Commander long-range, three- 
dimensionaL, S Band air defence 
radac 

This radar draws on Plessey 
experience gained from over 
twenty AR-3D air defence 
systems in operation around 
the worid, the AR-320 NATO 
Class l radar chosen for the air 
defence of the UK, and 
programmes such as Type 996- 
the Royal Navyls latest surveil- 
lance and laiget indication 
radac 

FLEXIBLE PATTERNS 

The AR-325 Commanderradar 
is capable of detecting targets 
250 miles distant and operating 
in the most severe electronic 
warfare environment. 

It employs unique patented 
techniques to produce flexible 
pulse patterns which are largely 
responsible for its outstanding 
performance. 

In its tactical configuration 
.the AR-325 Commander 
provides full facilities forpoint- 
to-point and air-ground-air 
communications, - normally 
contained in a single cabin. 





The PI esse)' Caswell laborato- 
ries are working on an appli- 
cation of PLZT electro-optic 
material to provide nuclear 
flash-proof goggles for aircrew 

PLZT material can literally 
twist fight when placed in an 
electric field. 

When H is coated with trans- 
parent electrodes and placed 
between two cross-polarised 
polarisation filters an electronic- 
ally controllable light shatter can 
be constructed. 

In the case of aircrew goggles, 
for example, a photosensor 
delects the blinding flash of a 
unclear explosion and discon- 
nects the vohage from tbe crystal 
electrodes to block the fight in a 
millionth of a second. 


Plessey has invested over 
250 man-years in developing 
the software and hardware 
associated with the data hand- 
ling and display systems for air 
defence and air traffic control. 

A complete system pro- 
duct, known as ConLroIlet; is 
now available incorporating

Scientists at Plessey have deve-

Plessey is supplying integrated 
drenits worth over £L5 mflfioa 
for the Interceptor -the world’s 
first hand-held teletext receiver 
manufactured by Telebeam 
International limited of 
Crawley. 

The Interceptor designed 
and assembled in the UK, will 
be available in October 1986 
and is the result of extensive 
collaboration between Plessey 
and Telebeam. 

Plessey was chosen to 
supply the circuits because of 
its proven expertise in pro- 
ducing standard broadcast 


products. Plessey also 
produced the special chips 
designed by Telebeam. 

Apart from public teletext.

fared wing aircraft. 

The invention has the 
potential to prevent fatal acci- 
dents like the crash of the 
Boeing 737 into the Potomac 
River in Washington DC in 
1982 which cost 78 lives. 

Techniques currently avail- 
able to stop ice forming are

primarily on military aircraft. 
However these techniques are 
more complex and only work 
once ice has formed. 

The Plessey invention 
consists of a heated probe ther- 
mostated at a typical 78°C. 
It measures the liquid water in 
the air around the aircraft. 

W>rk on the probe began in 
1980 and it has been tested 
extensively on a number of 
aircraft including Chinook, 
Vtessex and Puma helicopters. 
In all the tests the sensor 
proved 100% reliable, with no 
sign of degradation in its 
erosion-resistant coating. 

The potential for the inven- 
tion is not limited to aircraft. U 
has an obvious application for 
vehicles and agricultural uses.

I TNrtVFR STTY APPOINTMENTS ^ 


The way to make the grade 


IF you're wailing for your A level results 
then you don't necessarily need 10 read 
this. But how strong are your nerves? 

With any luck you have passed your 
exams with Hying colours and soon the 
champagne and congratulations will be 
flowing. And yet in a Tew days time, 
without question, there will be a sizeable 
number of sixth-formers who will be 
casting around for a bolt hole after 
getting disappointing grades. So you had 
better be prepared. 

As far as the universities are con- 
cerned. of course. UCCA operates a 
“clearing scheme" which helps to match 
rejected candidates with vacant places. 
Last summer 7,200 applicants were 
placed in this way so there may still be 
some room in the system if you have 
missed your required grades by just a 
point or two. 

Bui what if the UCCA net doesn’t 
scoop you up? Have you explored the 
other possibilities? For example, most of 
the really exciting things in higher 
education are happening in the poly- 
technics. Have you made any arrange- 
ments with them? 

“Students take months deciding which 
courses to apply la so it's a shame if they 
have to rush into a decision at the last 
moment just because they've got poor 
results," said Tony Higgins, chief exec- 
utive of the Polytechnics Central Ad- 
missions Sustem (PC AS). “I advise 
students to work out a contingency plan 
before they get their grades so that they 
are prepared to move quickly if 
necessary." 


A 24-hour telephone 
information system, ' 
seven days a week 


This year, fortunately, those who are 
looking for a last minute vacancy are 
able to call on a range of computerized 
information systems which should mean 
that finding a course is no longer a 
lottery. 

The introduction of a co-ordinated 
system of polytechnic admissions has 
triggered on* a huge effort to provide 
applicants with up-to-the-minute 
information. And due to the use of 
electronic mail there will be a quick and 
easy system for relaying applicants' 
details to admissions tutors. 

As far as schools are concerned the 
most useful source of vacancy informa- 
tion should be The Times Network for 
Schools (TTNS) which has 2,400 
“subscribers" scattered across 1,800 
schools and 600 other educational 
outlets. 

From this month 13 TTNS will be up- 
dated daily by the polytechnics so there 
is an exact tally of what is available and 
where. “We've tried the route already," 
said TTNS chief executive Gordon 
Jones, “and we know it works. We think 
it will be a great asset to candidates and 
advisers." 

Prestel will also be carrying vacancy 
information both through the Polytel 
system administered by Middlesex Poly- 


It’s not a complete 
disaster if your 
A-levels are not 
up to scratch. 
Edward Fennell 
has some good 
practical advice 

technic and through ECTIS (the Educa- 
tional Counselling and Credit Transfer 
Information Service funded by the 
Department of Education and Science). 
Again, for both services there will be a 
daily update and ECTIS also offers 
candidates a “Thesaurus" of courses to 
refer them to other relevant disciplines if 
their first-choice subject is full. 

For studen ts w ho don't have instant 
access to the TTNS or Prestel, PC AS is 
offering a telephone information system 
24 hours a day. seven days a week. This 



* aH# jegg 



Mftnfyroi. 


should be particularly valuable to people 
on holiday because whenever you phone, 
even at three o'clock on a Sunday 
morning, there will be someone on hand 
to give detailed information (but not 
advice) about vacancies in the courses 
you want. 

Finally, for those who have no truck 
with electronics, the Sunday Times will 
be carrying the PC AS vacancy informa- 
tion on key weekends in the next month. 
In short, when it comes to getting the 
latest information, you will be spoiled 
for choice. And that means there is no 
need to panic. If your results are good 
enough, somebody, somewhere will take 
you- 

The key question, however, is whether 
any place, anywhere, is what you want 
“The most common reason for students 
dropping out of college eariy on is that 
they make a snap decision to go on a 
course without enough information and 
without enough preparation,” Tony 
Higgins emphasized. 


Information alone, therefore, is not 
enough. Indeed, the more information 
available the more advice and guidance 
is needed to sort through which courses 
are appropriate. And lhat advice is best 
available through your local education 
authority's careers service. 

"I expect that we will be busier than 
ever this year because the cut-back in 
places is bound to result in more people 
on our doorsteps who need advice." said 
Tony Corder. the principal area careers 
officer in Cambridgeshire with the 
responsibility for setting up the various 
computer systems. “Although the 
computerized information is extremely 
valuable I see it as being primarily an aid 
to the careers adviser. 

“When students come in looking for 
vacancies they need to receive careful 
guidance about course content and its 
relevance to their career ambitions. In 
their haste to get on to a course they 
shouldn't take rash decisions. In any 
case, most of them will need assistance in 
finding their way through the computer 
programme so the involvement of the 
careers adviser is bound to be 
extensive." 

About 1.200 careers advisers are on 
stand-by at this lime of year as part of the 
Advanced Further Education Informa- 
tion Service and most of them will be 
tuned into the various computer 
information systems. But as Tony 
Corder, one of the advisers involved in 
AFEIS, points out. there is still a sizeable 
chunk of degree places — in the colleges 
and institutes of higher education — 


Details depend on 
the weekly circulation 
of printed lists 


which remain outside the daily updated 
computerized system. 

“As a result we will still be working on 
slightly incomplete information." 

Details of the slate of play at the 
colleges and institutes of higheT educa- 
tion will depend on the weekly circula- 
tion of printed lists to the careers 
advisers. But because the situation 
changes so rapidly this information can 
rarely be relied on. 

It must also be admitted that even the 
computerized systems cannot be guar- 
anteed as defln iti ve or Anal statements of 
vacancy status. 

As one academic registrar said: “The 
information which we give to PCAS will 
be generally correct. But in reality there 
are very few inflexible courses. There are 
always marginal candidates who can be 
squeezed in if we like them enough. So if 
an admissions tutor who had officially 1 
closed their books on admissions was 
approached by a candidate with eight or 
nine A level points, then the chances are' 
that a place would be found." 

The moral is that if your results are 
good it is always worth contacting direct 
by phone your favoured institution or 
course even though officially it may be 
full. If they like you enough, somehow 
they will get you in.

Sweet revenge 
for MinstreUa 
in photo finish 


RACING: ENGLISH-TRAINED RUNNERS LEAD THE WAY AT PHOENIX PARK 

Frank The Bank 


From onr Irish Racing Correspondent, Dublin 

of the running until headed by 
MinstreUa 300 yards out 


English-trained youngsters 
filled four of the first five 
places at the Phoenix Parle 
yesterday in the IR£200,000 
Heinz “57~ Phoenix Stakes, 
the richest two-year-old race 
ever run in Europe. 

However, contrary to most 
expectations victory went to 
MinstreUa, who in a gripping 
finish held on by a short head 
from the 9-4 iavourile Forest 
Fewer. 

This represented a reversal 
of the form in the Cherry 
Hinton Slakes at Newmarket 
in which Forest Fower had 
given 21b and a threequarters 
of a length beating to 
MinstreUa. 

The winning jockey, John 
Reid, said “I came too soon to 
take the lead at Newmarket 
and once in front she was 
inclined to idle with me and 
this allowed Forest Fower to 
lake the race.” 

Doubtless there is some 
justification for this argument 
but it was surely a change in 
ground, rather than a change 
in tactics, which produced 
yesterday's result. Despite 
very limited rain in Dublin 
over the previous 48 hours the 
official going was still returned 
as yielding to soft and Forest 
FLower's trainer Ian Balding 
expressed the opinion that 
"this blunted the speed of my 
filly.” 

Even so. Forest Fower, a 
diminutive sort, rallied splen- 
didly well under the pressure 
of Pat Eddery and would have 
got up in another stride. 

The only Irish-trained con- 
tender to reach the first five 
was Polonia. who made most 


From that point she lacked the 
final turn of speed and 
dropped back to be a length off 
Forest Fower. Her trainer Jim 
Bolger said afierwards: u ’I am 
delighted with the way she ran 
and only wish that this race 
bad been run at the Curragh." 

Bolger will get a chance to 
put this theory to the test as 
Charles Nelson said “I intend 
to bring MinstreUa back to 
Ireland for the Ii£l 00,000 
Moy^Iare Stud Stakes.” That 
race is likewise the next target 
for Polonia.

In the previous race yes- 
terday there was another En- 
glish photo-finish viclory-with 
North Verdict holding on by a 
neck from Spending Contin- 
ues and Gorgeous Strike in a 
finish of necks to the 
Ir£I2,0G0 added Shan bally 
House Stud Stakes. - North 
Verdict had been fourth in the 
Italian Derby lo Tommy Way 
and has been running well 
under big weights in handi- 
caps. For his trainer Michael 
Jarvis this represented a first 
win in Ireland after many 
years of trying. He reminded 
me that as long ago as 1970 he 
had saddled Meadowville to 
finish second to Nijinsky in 
the Irish Sweeps Deity.

Radial, who beat sole rival. It’s Now Or Never, at Ungfield’s 
night meeting on Saturday to give Stove Cauthen his third 
winner of the day, die American rider having collected a dou- 
ble at Newmarket with Laluche and Power Bender. 

Laluche looks top class 

Lalaefee, tacked from 5-4 to 
13-8 on, led from start to finish 
in the Sweet Solera Stakes at 
Newmarket on Saturday, to give 
Henry Cecfl his fifth saccess in 
this race. 

Ladbrokes immediately of- 
fered the fffly at 33-1 for next 
year’s UMO Gnineas, but Cedi 
is not thinking so far ahead at 
the moment. He said “she's a 
good tittle filly and wo aid have 
been much better salted sitting 
in behind instead of mairmp dm 
running bat they went no gallop.. 

She will get « mile bat I still 
want to see her improve. She's in 
all the races tike the Hoover 
Fillies Mile." 


Walter Swinbarn, 
two Mack eyes after a horse 
threw back its head and hit him 
in the face on the gallops, once 
again demonstrated fenltiess 
judgement when producing five 
Farthings entering the Bn»l 
fariong to overwhelm Twice 
Bold and Witchcraft in the Air 
New Zealand Handicap. 

The lady amatenr riders tri- 
umphed over the male pro- 
fessionals when Brooke 
Sanders, riding Dctryar, landed 
the Dkkins Invitation Stakes. 
The Stan MeUor-trained horse, 
a 13-2 chance, beat Brent Thom- 
son, on Mr Jay-Zee, by one and 
a half lengths. 


John Sutcliffe, that astute 
Eusom trainer, has been eryoy- 
ma a profitable campaign, 
particularly with his three- year- 
bid gelding Aventino. who «tr- 
lier m the season collected five 
races in a row for him. 

Sutcliffe must have htgn 
hopes that one of his younger 
brigade. Frank The Bank, will 
record his first success, in the 
ffuifl Acre Maiden Stakes at 
Windsor this afternoon. 

Frank The Bank, a well-grown 
son of Full Extent, caught the 
eye on his first racecourse 
appearance, also at Windsor, 
when he made good late head; 
way to take fourth place behind 
Jovick last month. 

Sixth in that event, three and 
a half lengths behind my selec- 
tion was Skybolt. who reopposes 
Loday. However, But 
0’Gorman‘s youmpter has since 
been beaten into fourth place in 
a Yarmouth auction stakes, and 
appears not to have the scope of 
prank The Bank, who is napped 
to open his account. 

Also at the Berkshire course 
there is an interesting contest 
between two course winners, 
Nilambar and Boon Point in the 
Skypon Stakes. 

The Aga Khan's Nilambar. 
after two Windsor victories, was 
allowed to take his place in 
Goodwood's competitive Exiel 
Handicap, and he ran really 
well, leading two furlongs out 
before lading into fourth place 
behind the eventual winner. 
Chinoiserie. 

However, that effort may 
have left its mark and slight 
preference is for the Arundel 
trained Boon Point who showed 
much-improved form when 
comfortably accounting for Red 
Shoes over the course and 
distance earlier this month. 

Dunlop and Pat Eddery 
should also collect the Juniors 
Nursery with Strath Wane, who 
before her Salisbury outing be- 
hind Grey Wolf Tiger, had 
shown the utmost gameness to 
bead Lingering at Brighton. 

Gary Carter looks the jockey 
to follow at Newcastle where 


this competent apprentice can 
claim a double on Get On 
Gerashty (235) and Catherines 
Well (3.45). 

Geoff Huffer’s Get On 
Geroghiy. who runs in die ' 
Wansbcck Auction Stakes, . 
landed the odds in effortless 
style to gain his first victory m a , 
similar event over (he. course 
and distance last month, and he 
is likely to be at short odds again * 
to complete a double. 

Mick Easterby. the Flaxton 
trainer, has recognised the value 
of Carter's 3Ib-aJlowance, book- . 
ing him for his well-handi- - 
capped filly Catherines Well in 
the feature race of the day, the - 
Northumberland Sprint 
Trophy. 

A smart two-year-old, Cath- . 
trines Well has been running ’ 
consistently all season without ' 


Asmussen banned 


Cash Asmussen, the French 
champion jockey, received a 
four-day suspension at Deau- 
ville yesterday. Asmussen’s bon 
starts next Tuesday which 
means the American jockey win

C hampionship at York. ' 

winning. An indication of this 
was her latest effort when 
carrying 9st 61b she finished a 
close-up third behind. Sew High 
at Pontefract. Today she has two 
stone less on her back. 

Her main rivals today could 
be the speedy Hallgate and the 
Alan Jarvis-trained Lochonica, 
who showed signs of a return to 
his best form at Gosforth Park 
last month when be was third 
behind Pasticcio. 

Ameghino was strongly fan- 
cied for last month's Stewards* 
Cup at Goodwood, but did not 
get the best of runs in that 
cavalry charge, finishing 14th 
behind Green Ruby. However, 
this talented sprinter has a fine 
opportunity to recoup the losses 
in tonight’s Nottingham 
Stewards' Cup. at the expense of 
Powder Blue and Roysia Boy.

Saunter for 
Singletta 

Singletta. ridden by Walter 
Swinburn. made all for a very 
easy nine and a half length 
success over Noretia and 
Comprida in the group three 
Hcrbslsiuten-Preis um den 
GatzweiJm Alz-Pokn) over tea 
and a half furlongs at Neuss 
yesterday 

Rakaposbi King (Steve 
Cauthen) also tried to make ail 
in the group two Prix Kergoriay 
at Deauville, but he was headed 
by the comfortable four length 
winner. King Luthier, just over 
a furlong out and faded into 
fourth. Family Friend (Willie 
Carson) was a disappointing 
seventh. 

Robert Williams had a day of 
mixed luck at Ostende. 
Chaumiere was beaten two 
heads under top weight in the 
Prix du President et de Mme 
Max Dugniolle with Philip 
Mitchefft Kala Nashan in sixth, 
but the two-year-old My Buddy 
literally romped away under 
Tony Ives with the Prix Mona 
by 20 lengths.

Cricket Correspondent 

Stilt looking sadly unlike a 
decent side, England conceded 
a firei innings lead of 157 in 
the second Test match against 
New Zealand, sponsored by 
CornhilL, on Saturday . and 
then lost Unimportant wicket 
of Gooch before the. close of 
play. With two days logo and 
a forecast of fine weather, they 
will do well now to get away 
with a draw, 

Even in this awful year for 
English cricket, Saturdays 
have sometimes brought some 
reGefl In two of the five Test 
matches in ihe West Indies, 
for example, they did so. But 
not this time: As New Zealand 
ground out a first innings total 
of 413. England looked devoid 
of resilience and imagination, 
not to mention class. Of New 
Zealand's last six batsmen, 
three took the opportunity to 
make their highest Test score.

Gatting took on' the captaincy.

end of a New Zealand innings 
to derisory noises from the 
crowd. It happened first in the 
one-day international at. Old 
Trafford after England's 
bowlers had been flogged all 
round the ground. On Sat- 
■urday it was not because they 
had taken heavy punishment 
but for their general ineptness, 
made to seem worse, .1 am 
afraid, by Gatling's handling 
of affairs. 

Much as the England play- 
ers liked Gower, they fa- 
voured a change to Gattingfor 
the greater incisiveness they 
thought it would bring, but 
-which was not . now in ev- 
idence. Since the amateur

What I 



- Braoeweirs day: Gooch fens victim to Bracewell who excelled with bat and ball for New Zealand on Saturday 


often in rather . distance 
communication with his 
bowlers, was out of all propor- 
tion and quite unlike him.. 

When Gray was out after 
making a laborious, albeit 
valuable. 50 in five hours, the 
England side assembled to- 
gether. It would have been 
strange had they not. But they 
were still in a huddle after the 
next man in. Smith, had taken 
guard. That was bad cricket 
and bad psychology. England 
took drinks on Saturday 
morning when it was entirely 
unnecessary. That, too. 
smacked of self-indulgence. 

It is. an unlucky England 
captain who has to set a field 
for such a wayward last bowler 
as Thomas. The best coach of 
bowlers in the country is 
reckoned to be 
Leicestershire's evergreen Ken 
Higgs, who would. 1 am sure, 
be delighted to have a look at 
Thomas. The great golfers are 
always going back to their 
mentors for a check-up, so 
why not send Thomas to 
Higgs, to straighten him out? 

As Jbr Edmonds and 


Emburey it seems to me that 
at the expense of guile and 
cunning they have come to 
rely on fielders m suicidal 
positions unsettling the bats- 
men. That is not high class, 
good-wicket bowling. These, 
then, are some of Gatting's 
problems. 

I have great confidence in 
him to lake the side out of the 
doldrums, but only if he does 
things his way, which is to get 
on with the game. There were 
times on Saturday when it was 
as though England's circula- 
tion. had stopped. Small was a 
reasonable success, because he 
bowled a presentable line. 
Pringle missed his chance on 
Friday, when the ball was 
moving about Gooch has 
been under-used again. 

New Zealand, surprised to 
find England so lacking in 
professionalism, are enjoying 
it all enormously. England 
would no doubt be holding 
their own if they had Richard 
Hadlee on their side; yet 
Saturday belonged to John 
Bracewell, who nils the bill of 
the unsung hero. Coming in 
when Hadlee was out he 


scored his first Test hundred 
and then, to cap it he took 
Gooch's wicket when England 
batted for seven overs before 
the end of play. 

After being first left out of 
the New Zealand side that 
went tb Australia towards the 
end of last year, Bracewell was 
called for halfway through the 
tour. He at once made 83 not 
out and took five wickets in 
the second Test at Sydney. 
When, soon afterwards, 
Australia paid a return visit to 
New Zealand, he took 10 
wickets at Auckland in the 
victory which gave New Zea- 
land the series. He is a taU, 
unassuming cricketer, who is 
finding that application and 
common sense go a long way 
even in Test matches. 

Perhaps, one day, England 
will again have a side that can 
recover from 144 for five to 
make 413. as New Zealand 
did For the moment they 
have 10 successive Test 
matches without a single first 
innings lead to look back on. 
something which I imagine no 
other country can. ever have 
achieved Not surprisingly. 


All-round relief for Middlesex 


As Middlesex managed to get 
their batting right at Chelten- 
ham on Saturday, their support- 
ers will haye sighed with relief 
while in the dressing-room Clive 
Radley wiR have allowed him- 
selfa smile as he earned a pat on 
the back (Peter Marson writes). 
In answering 


think the crowd 
.found so trying on Saturday, 
'other than the shortage of 
■strokes; was England’s lack of 
drill, the very thing which 
'undermined them in the West 
Indies. The time Gatling took 
fiddling about with the field 


could reasonably have thought 
his combination of speed and 
spin sufficient to give bim the 
inilalive, Middlesex batted 
bravely before resting more 
easily on their laurels than for 
some time as they won the first 
round on points 3-2 in making 
302 for five. 

Slack and Miller made an 
encouraging beginning in which 


they successfully countered 
Walsh's and Lawrence's hostil- 
ity and the foundation to an 
innings of substance was made 
here. Then Butcher was briefly 
belligerent before Brown and 
Radley displayed circumspec- 
tion and composure in a 
consolidating process. 

All of which can only have 
been stimulating, not to say 
inspirational- And so it went on. 
with Carr making 55 not out and 
Downton, who had adopted 
Radley's idea of assuming the 
acting captaincy, responding in 
the best way by making his 
contribution 34 not out. 

At Leicester, where Fletcher 
had chosen to bat, Essex were 
grateful to have Harche make a 
halfcentury as they were hustled 


out by Leice st ershire's bowlers 
for 216 in 83.2 overs.

tbe England dressing room is 
said to be a very depressing 
place and the team collectively 
and individually vulnerable. 
Nor would the air have been 
cleared on Saturday evening 
when Gooch, after being given 
out, caught at silly point ofT 
bat and pad. a derision which 
clearly upset him. found that 
the selectors were wanting to 
know within 72 hours whether 
or not he intends to make 
himself available to tour 
Australia this winter. 

It aft revolves, apparently, 
around matters domestic. His 
wife presented him with twins 
earlier in the season and he is 
haunted by the prospect of a 
four-month parting from the 
family. Perhaps he will think 
tint the most beneficial way of 
investing some of the 
£150,000 which his benefit 
brought him in last year would 
be to take a house in Sydney. 
The climate there at that time 
of year is worth all tbe cod 
liver oil in the world. 

The selectors’ confidence 
can be no higher than that of 
the players. If this presentTest 
match is lost tbe pressure will 
mount .on them to bring back 
Botham. They are not, I think, 
overkeen to do that just yet, 
and that is natural after the 
insults he has paid them. But 
their priority must be to pick 
the best possible side for the 
Oval (with a caveat about 
Gooch),' and the longer 
Botham has been gone the 
more he has been missed. 

Mark of progress 

Mark AJIeyne. the 18-year-old 
Gloucestershire batsman, has 
signed the three-year contract be 
was offered two weeks ago. He 
recently became the youngest 
player to score % century for the 
county and David Graveney. 
Gloucestershire's captain, said: 
“What he has achieved in such a 
short time is remarkable." 


CYCLING 


Prologue is epilogue 
for the favourite 

From John Wflcockson, San Francisco 


' When Greg LeMond, who 
won the Tour de France for the 
first time two weeks ago, began 
the quest for his third victory in 
.the Coors International Bicycle 
^Classic on Saturday. 40,000 
Mtttow-Axnericans roared him 
.away from the start of the 
rproiogue time trial at 
? Fisherman's Wharf LeMond, 
^who comes from Sacramento, is 
i^gain the favourite to win this 
two-week, 1,065-mile stage race, 
,and he was expected to win the 
1 .05-mile uphill prologue 
through the streets of San 
' Francisco. 

i Before LeMond began, tbe 
'last of the 84 starters from 14 

• countries, the fastest time stood 
;to Petr Ugrumov. the Soviet 
l amateur who finished fourth in 
t the British Milk Race two 
.'months. The supporters 
J chanted: “Greg. Greg. Greg," as 

• they waited in Grant Street. 


half-way up the' climb to Coil 
Tower. But their roar was 
silenced as LeMond rounded 
the 90-degree corner to climb 
the vicious one-in-five gradient, 
and stopped. 

“The chain went into my 
wheel as I changed gear,” 
LeMond explained. “I don't' 
know how it happened. I had to 
run up the hOl cyclo-cross style. 
It was a stupid way to lose:" 

LeMond remounted and 
completed his effort in 3min 
36sec. while Ron KiefeL a fellow 
American, who started one 
minute in front him, raced to a 
time of 3min 12_53sec for a 
brilliant victory. It was the 
fourth successive year that 
KiefeL from Denver, has won 
the prologue in the Coors 
Classic.

DRESSAGE 


Marzog does not put a foot strong 


All rumours of the Olympic 
silver medal winner, Marzog, 
not being In form were dispelled 
in the first section of the 
dressage world team champion- 
ships (a Special Correspondent 
writes). It was, perhaps, a little 
stiffer than in the past bat he 
stfli did the difficult movements 
with such ease that be earned 
tire high score of 1,71k and 
helped Denmark establish a 
good place in the race for tbe 
team medals. 

With excellent footing in the 


the dressage at Cedar 
Valley has been of the highest 
standard. Many riders have 
performed their best-ever test. 
Two of these were Britain's 
representatives: Elisabet Jokey 
started the day with a mistake- 
free test on her hnge home-bred 
Fowdermoakey to reach the 
1,500s for the first time. 

Tbe star was Jane Bartle- 
Wilson who, despite mistakes, 
did stxrh outstanding piaffe and 
passage that she scored L622 
and had the large crowd cheer- 


ing in appreciation. As on the 
previous day's Intennediaire II

stongest representatives, Chris- 
topher Bartle and Jennie 
Loriston-Clarke, to come; the 
latter is still in the bunt for a

EQUESTRIANISM 

Mullins in 
Irish 

Grand Prix 
victory 

From Jenny MacArfhnr 
Dublin 

In a country where 
showjumping is still a major 
sport. Captain Gerry Mullins' 
victory on the 17-year-old, 
Rock barf on. in the Grand Pm 
of Ireland on Saturday, the last 
day of the Dublin Horse Show, 
brought an unashamed display 
of emotion. It was the first time 
the trophy had gone to Ireland 
for 20 years. 

Based at the Irish Army's 
School of Equitation at the 
McKee barracks in Dublin. 
Mnllins became a household 
name when finishing fourth on 
Rockbarton in the 1982 world 
championships In Dublin. At 
this year's world championships 
at Aachen. West Germany, the 
pair finished in seventh position. 

John Whitaker, who came 
sixth on Ryan's Son. described 
Steven Hickey's track as the 
biggest be had seen this year 
outside Aachen. He. and his 
brother. Michael, on Warren 
Point, both had one fence down 
in the first round, but then 
produced clears in the second 
round. 

Peter CTiarles did well to 
reach tire second round on April 
Sun, who was exhausted after 
his two good rounds for the 
winning British team in Friday's 
Nations Cop. Despite his eight 
faults on Saturday, the horse, 
who had an operation to remove 
an internal blockage in April, 
has shown this week that he is 
again capable of taking on the 
world's best. 

Only three riders produced 
doable dear rounds to go into 
the jump-off — Mullins, Jay- 
Land, for the United States, and 
Kieran Rooney, of Ireland. Land 
set a Cast time on the Irish-bred 
Leapy Lad. which looked near 
impossible to beat. Bat Mullins 
and Rockbarton were more than 
half a second faster. 

Mnllins simply said: “I’d have 
been shocked if I'd have come 
home any slower.” Rooney, tbe 
bast to go on Hyland Serpent, 
retired after knocking down two 
fences, and ended the day in 
third place.

Becker in the final 
as McEnroe 
goes down talking 


Siration Mountain. Vermont 
(Agencies) — John McEnroe, in 
his first tournament for nearly 
seven months, held four match 
points before going down to his 
successor as Wimbledon cham- 
pion. Buns Becker, here on 
Saiurdav night. The match con- 
tained a few clashes of personal- 
ities between the two players but 
afterwards McEnroe said the 
game would be dull if they were 
not permitted to show their 
emotions. 

"I think people should be 
allowed to express lhcmsekcsT 
McEnroe said. "It's boring if we 
simply hit the ball over the nci.“ 
From a contest filled with 
posturing by both players. 
Becker emerged triumphant. 3- 
6. 7-5. 7-6 to set up a final 
against Ivan Lendl, who runner- 
up to him at Wimbledon last 
month. It was only the second 
lime that the 18-vcar-old Ger- 
man and the 27-year-old New- 
Yorker had met and they are 
now level with one win apiece. 

It was almost a classic 
confrontation between the for- 
mer king and his successor who 
was testing his power game 
against McEnroe's touch. "It's 
always a special meaning to beat 
McEnroe, whether it's in a first 
round somewhere or in the final 
of a Grand Slam." Becker said. 
“To me. he's the greatest 
player." 

Becker won the loss and 
elected to receive, which was 
surprising considering the Ger- 
man teenager's big service. 
Then, as McEnroe started to 
serve to begin the match. Becker 
turned his hack on the court. 
McEnroe waited until Bcckcr 
was ready, then prepared again 
to served And again. Becker 
turned around and walked 
away, causing McEnroe to shake 
his head and wait some more. 

Later, following a 41 -minute 
rain delay in the sixth game, 
both players were at the net 
when McEnroe smashed the ball 
at Becker's feet. McEnroe 
turned and walked away as 
Becker glowered at him. 

In the fifth game of the middle 
set. Becker hit four straight 
volleys before finally winning a 
point that brought him to deuce. 
With McEnroe looking at him. 
the young redhead went into his 
"Becker Shuffle" to celebrate 
winning the point But it was his 

& not his posturing, that 
y gave Becker the victory, 
although McEnroe exploited a 
weakness that other players may 
use against the strong right- 


hander. Time and again, Becker 
was unable lu handle a hall hit io 
his backhand, sending u into (he 
net or down ihe line wide. It 
must have been especially 
gratifying, therefore, for the 
game-winner, at ID-8 in the tie- 
break. to be a backhand passing 
shot down the line that 
McEnroe volleyed into the net 

Referring to Becker's accusa- 
tion lhai he had tried to 
intimidate thr young West Ger- 
man. McEnroe said: "I didn’t 
abuse him. I just told him I 
didn't need stuff like that." 

The start of ihe other semi- 
final was delayed by rain but 
when it did begin. Lendl forced 
an early break against Jimmy 
Connors and led 4-1 Bui Con- 
nors pulled even at 4-4 before 
the Czechoslovak broke again, 
serving out ihe set ri-4. In the 

second set. the fierce baseline 
battle continued and Connors 
won the set ft-3 on a backhand 
error by Lendl. 

In the third set. Connors 
broke for a 1-0 lead but Lendl 
seized an immediate break back. 
Then the world No 1*5 con- 
fidence returned and he carved 
out a t>-2 v ictorv in the third set 
and he achieved his tenth 
consecutive win over the 33- 
\ ear-old American.

BOWLS 


Wright in Bournemouth win 


Jeff Wright of the Cadoxton 
dub, Barry, won the Bourne- 
mouth open tournament singles 
at his first attempt at Meyrick 
Park on Saturday. In the final he 
beat Arthur Jackson, of Swin- 
don, 21-16. Welshmen have 
often done well at Bourne- 
mouth. among them Ray Hill, 
who won the singles three years 
ago. 

Wright, a Welsh indoor inter- 
national. was Hill's lead in the 
world indoor pairs champion- 
ship at Bournemouth last April. 
Another strand of coincidence is 
that Hill beat Jackson in the 
quarter-finals during his 
Bournemouth success in 1983. 


By Gordon Alton 

The nearest Jackson came to 
catching Wright was when- the 
score stood at 16-15 to Wright- 
Two fours — the first with a trail, 
the second when Wright bowled 
a careless end — gave Jackson 
the chance. It proved to be his 
last, leaving him as runner-up 

Wright had beaten the En- 
gland player. David Taylor, 21- 
18 in the semi-finals. It was the 
second of T aylor's th ree 
matches on Saturday, which 
kept him on (he green for more 
than eight hours. In the first, he 
and Peter Unc beat Albert 
Williams and David Wilkins 21- 
20 in a pairs semi-final after 
gathering five shots on the 21st 


end to make the score 20-20 and 
force an extra end. 

In the final. Taylor and Line 
took the tide with a 28-16 win 
over Duncan Hayne. aged 16. 
and Neil Smith, aged 20, of St

FOOTBALL: SFA INQUIRY LOOMS FOR RANGERS FOLLOWING MASS PITCH BRAWL 


Souness debut wrecked by dismissal 


By Hugh Taylor 

The Scottish Football Associ- 
ation are certain to call for an 
inquiry into the disgraceful in- 
cidents which marred the match 
between Hibernian and Rangers 
at Easter Road on 
Saturday.Ranger*' new player- 
manager. Graeme Souness, was 

ordered off. nine other players 
were cautioned, and a brawl in 
the centre circle following 
Souness's fierce tackle on 
McCluskey saw 21 players lash- 
ing out at each other in front of 
television cameras. 

Among those booked were 
Rangcre' expensive imports 
from England. Butcher and 
WesL both of whom were 
perhaps fortunate to stay on the 
field after striking opponents. 

Although the abrasive 
Souness was repentant after- 
wards when he made a public 
apology for the tackle which left 
McOuskey in hospital with 
severe lacerations on his knee, it 
is difficult to see Rangers escap- 
ing an inquiry by the SFA. who 
have indicated that punishment 


for violent play will be more 
severe this season. 

Last October they were fined 
£1000. and Aberdeen £1.000, 
after an investigation into an ill- 
tempered league match which 
saw two Rangers players sent off 
and six others cautioned. So it 
■ was an ill-fated introduction to 
Scottish league football for 
Souness. whose team, of whom 
so much had been expected, was 
far too often in disarray follow- 
ing the dismissal of their man- 
ager. Hibernian deserved their 
2-1 victory. The goals were 
scored by Beetie and Cowan for 
Hibernian, and by McCoist with 
a penally for Rangers. 


In contrast, it was probably 
just too peaceful at Parkhead 
where Celtic beat Dundee 1-0 to 
earn their opening two points in 
defence of the premier division 
championship. Johnston scored 
a superb goal in tbe third 
minute, but although Celtic 
were always superior to their 
opponents who lacked the 
finishing touch, they never 
found their brightest form. In- 
deed. David Hay. the manager, 
confessed: “It was rather a let- 
down. and we can play much 
better." 

Aberdeen, whose poor results 
away from home Iasi season 
• undoubtedly cost them the

prove on an abject record when 
they lost 2-1 to Dundee United 
at Tannadico. Gough, who had 
been making headlines all week 
because of his transfer demand, 
showed why United are so keen 

to retain his services. The 
international defender scored 
the first goal and provided the 
pass for Redford to make vic- 
tory secure. Aberdeen, who 
lacked a midfield personality to 
dictate play, pulled back a goal 
in the 88th minute 

Hemt of Midlothian did little 
at Paisley to show they have 
fully recovered their composure 
following the cruel Mows which 
robbed them at the last moment 
last season of league and cup 
wins, and they were fortunate to 
draw 0-0 with a St Mirren team 
who played for most of the time 
with 10 players. Gallagher hav- 
ing been ordered off. 

Neither did Falkirk and 
Hamilton Academicals, the 
newcomers to the division, 
show that they have the re- 
sources to challenge for hon- 
ours.

Windermere’s 
cold comfort 
for Newman 

By John Good body 

Marc Newman, of Poole, ably 
withstood the unwelcoming wa- 
ter temperature of 58 degrees in 
Lake Windermere to win the 
first Fina world long distance 
cup on Saturday. Even though 
ihe sun shone throughout the 
event, the conditions were so 
chilly that only 19 of the 34 
crimes completed the 25 
kilometres ( I S'c miles) race as 
many swimmers, suffering from 
hypothermia, had io give up. 

Newman had tire necessary 
pedigree both to withstand tire 
cold and to maintain a sustained 
pace. Last year he was deprived 
of a probable record for swim- 
ming the Channel when the 
French pilot of his accompany- 
ing boat forced him to tread 
water in a shipping lane. 

After five miles he was six 
minutes behind the American 
Florence Barker, ranked tenth in 
the world last year for the 
Olympic distance of 1.500 me- 
tres. and he was closely followed 
by Lyndon Dunsbec. Britain's 
leading competitor. 

Dunsbec. however, had to 
retire after tearing his left shoul- 
der and as Miss Barker began to 
suffer with the cold Newman 

began to catch her. The Ameri- 
can suddenly collapsed and had 
to be pulled out of the water and 
this left Newman alone to win in 
6hr 22 min 6sec, understandably 
slow because of the conditions. 

In ihe women's race Alexa 
Reepz. of ihe United Stales, 
finished dear of the Hungarian 
Gizella Szlaviisck. whose hus- 
band stood throughout the race 
at ihe front of the suppon boat 
to dictate her stroke. Every time 
he rhythmically clapped she 
pulled her arm over. Bridget 
Young, from Dover, was third.

CRICKET 


Sixes climb the sky 
as Botham outdoes 
even his exploits 


WELLINGBOROUGH: No 
result. Northamptonshire 2pts. 
Somerset 2. 

Ian Botham hit 13 sixes and 
12 fours as be made 175 not 
out yesterday in a remarkable 
assault on the Northampton- 
shire bowling, which left him 
one short of the individual 
John Player Special League 
record. It was baiting of a 
power and dominance 
extraordinary even by h|s 
standards, and continued his 
eventful comeback to cricket 
after a nine-week suspension. 

Botham, who marked his 
return last Monday with a 64- 
ball championship hundred, 
batted 119 minutes and faced 
122 balls. The mathematical 
details utterly fail to convey 
the brute force allied to perfect 
timing and technique with 
which he punished the ball, 
especially past mid-on. There 
were seldom any half-mea- 
sures: the ball either skimmed 
along the ground with a force 
that stung the fieldsmen's 
hands, or it sailed high above 
them for six. 

A 7,000 crowd, standing 10 
deep in places, ringed the 
ground, but were deprived of a 
finish by heavy rain when 
Northamptonshire were 54 for 
one from 15 overs. Their 
target had already been re- 
duced to 231 in 33 overs by 
earlier rain, which interrupted 
Somerset’s innings near its 
end. Northamptonshire's two 
points were enough to keep 
them at the top of the table. 

Botham's batting was made 
all the more memorable by the 
fact that this was not wild, 
indiscriminate slogging but a

sustained, carefully calculated 
display of aggressive stroke- 
making. Baiting, in fact, was 
not always easy, with the ball 
moving about freely from a 
damp pitch and the light 
worsening as rain clouds gath- 
ered. 

Northamptonshire's well 
equipped attack at no time 
lost their heads but one by one 
they were reduced to im- 
potence against a full variety 
of strokes from Botham. Once 
he settled in he never hit the 
ball with less than enormous 
force, and despite the rate he 
travelled, he never gave any 
sort of a chance. Nine of his 
sixes were straight or over 
long-on, three others were 
hooked or pulled to the leg 
■side and one was over extra 
cover. 

The Wellingborough School 
ground is a small playing area 
by first-class standards but 
several of his sixes went out of 
the ground and would have 
been sixes on any ground. His 
first eight sixes came in sepa- 
rate overs and were followed 
by a deliberate single to keep 
the bowling. He took 59 balls 
for his first fifty, starting in 
feel with nine careful singles; 
his second fifty came in 28 
balls and his third fifty in 29 
balls. 

Somerset were 18 for two 
from five overs when Botham 
came in. They were 51 for 
three from 12 overs when 
Richards was third out. Rich- 
ards had hit Capel for six over 
extra cover and was then 
beaten by a ball which came 
back a long way. Botham was 
eight at this point, which 


Yorkshire stay in 
title hunt 


By Peter Ball 


SCARBOROUGH: Yorkshire 
(4pts) beat Glamorgan by 19 
runs. 

Yorkshire kepi up their pur- 
suit of the John Player League 
title and laid a Welsh bogey at 
the same time, beating Glamor- 
gan for the first time in seven 
years. Their second siring seam 
bowlers proved too much for 
Glamorgan, with Fletcher. Den- 
nis and Pickles all making 
invaluable contributions as the 
last six Glamorgan wickets fell 
for 35 runs in the last seven 
overs. 

Yorkshire’s final 200 repre- 
sented considerable riches after 
they had been held in chains by 
some splendid out-cricket, with 
notable catches taken by Davies, 
diving round to silly point, 
Hopkins at point, and Derrick at 
deep backward square4eg.The 
turning point came in an event- 
ful 3Jrd over from Holmes. 
Nine runs came from the first 
four balls, the fifth yielded a run 
and a wickeL, Bairstow being run 
out going for a second as Oniong 
recovered his initial mis-field at 
mid-on. From the sixth. Byas 
edged on. aiming a big drive at a 
wide half-volley. 

Ai 133 for six, Yorkshire were 
in trouble. But as Morris per- 
sisted with Holmes and Derrick, 
instead of recalling his front line 
bowlers. Carrick and Pickles 
swung effectively to pul on 67 in 
the last seven overs. Twenty- 


three of them came in Holmes's 
last over, Carrick hitting him for 
successive sixes over the finger- 
tips o flong-on and long-off. and 
finishing with a three

The French prize 


By Ivo Tennant 


J7.VCf.VT SQUARE: Old 
MiUrcrnians beat Downside 
Wanderers by six wickets. 

_ Old Malvemians. half their 
side comprising current or for- 
mer county cricketers, won the 
Cricketer Cup for the third time 
when they beat Downside 
Wanderers ’yesterday in a well 
contested final. Their main 
prize is a day trip to Epemay in 
France in October. 

The Cricketer Cup was con- 
ceived by A S R W’inlaw. the 
cricket writer. It began in 1967 
with 16 old boys' sides taking 
part. Now there are 32. the 
competition is sponsored by 
Moui and Chandon and run by 
Ben BrocklehursL managing 
director of The Cricketer. 

The key to its success is that 
the cricket is both social and 
competitive, which is not always 
an easy mix. Yesterday, before 
some 2.000 spectators. Ellcock.' 
of Worcestershire, and Mac- 

Laurin. of Middlesex, were play- 
ing for Malvemians as were the 
Tolchard brothers and Richard- 
son. late of Leicestershire and 
Worcestershire respectively. 
Roger Tolchard is probably still 
good enough to play county 
cricket. 

Downside included Hender- 
son. recently of Worcestershire 
and Glamorgan, who with Ber- 
nard got his side away to a 
century opening partnership on 
being put in. The pitch was on 
the slow side, too slow for 


Ellcock. It was the change 
bowlers who broke through and 
restricted Downside to 228. 

Barbecues had been banned 
by the headmaster of West- 
minster School, whose ground 
this is. It is sacred turf. Imbib- 
ing. though, was in full swing 
when Malvemians began their 
innings. Richardson started 
confidently and for the second 
wicket. Jeff Tolchard and Mao- 
Laurin. who gives the ball a fair 
crack, added 96 in 62 minutes.

Somerset’s last 221 runs in 27

Felton, too, hit well as be

before he holed out to deep

before he hit his first six. He 
reached his century with a six 
off Nick Cook, his fifth six, 
and at this stage had also 
hammered 10 fours. The 
scoreboard were two runs 
behind at this juncture and the 
crowd missed the milestone at 
the proper time. 

when Somerset were 220 
for four from 34.5-overe, rain 
drove the players off, with 
Botham 130. It reduced the 
game at this point to 39 overs 
and when play resumed 
Botham took sixes from three 
successive balls from 
Mallander.

Stepping up: Hide on his way to 27 for Worcestershire 
against Surrey yesterday (Photograph: Hugh Roudedge) 


Sussex inspired by Parker 


Hampshire slipped up at 
Dean Park. Bournemouth, yes- 
terday. where a splendid innings 
of 92 by Paul Parker and 
another by Alan Wells, who 
made 63. saw Sussex gain their 
seventh victory in the John 
Player Special League this sea- 
son with five balls to spare in a 
match reduced to 36 overs. 

After Hampshire had been 
invited to bat, Greenidge was 
soon seeking to destroy the 
bowling, and the fall of Teny's 
wicket at 40 did nothing to ease 
the pressure. Robin Smith then 
made 57 not out, and all the 
remaining batsmenexcept for 
James, who was the last to fell to 
le Roux (4-40), helped make the 
runs* Nicholas required. 

At Leicester, Essex moved up 
into joint leadership with their 
eighth victory against Leicester- 
shire. whom: they beat by 24 
runs in a match reduced to 18 
overs. Essex had gone off at a 
great pace, and leading the 


By Peter Marson 

charge, Handle had made a half 
century out of 97 for two in 1 1 
overs. 

Kent's match with Warwick- 
shire at Edgbaston was aban- 
doned after rain had stopped 
play at the point when Kent had 
gotto 74 for two in the sixteenth 
over. There had been time for 
Hinks to make a quick 50 in a 
useful beginning, but with the 
score 52. Gifford bowled Ben- 
son. and after Hinks and Tavart 
had put on 22. Hinks fell to a 
catch behind off Ferrdra. 

At The Park, Buxton, a fine 
innings of 60 not out by Roberts 
enabled Derbyshire to beat Lan- 
cashire by three wickets with 
three bails to spare. 

Put in to bat, Lancashire were 
soon in trouble. Mendis felling 
to Holding with the score on 
nine, and when another three 
wickets fell for the addition of 
57 nuts, 15 overs remained. 
With ^Derbyshire's quintet of 
bowlers giving nothing away. 


Fairbrolher did especially well 
to make 52 not out. 

Hooliganism spoiled the 
game, for more than 3,000 
people packed into the tiny peak 
district ground as three arrests 
for public order offences were 
made. The police bad been 
forewarned that a group of 
foothai) fens from Derby were 
i nten l on having a confirm tation 
with Manchester United and 
Manchester City supporters at 
the. game and the laige police 
presence succeeded in segregat- 
ing the rival groups. 

At The Oval, Surrey beat 
Worcestershire by four wickets. 
Set to make 190 to win, Clinton 
made 59, Jesty 31 and Thomas 
37 not out. Having been invited 
to bat, Worcestershire made a 
fine stan with Smith and 
Rhodes putting on 77 for the 
first wicket. With half their 
overs gone, Worcestershire 
needed to accelerate, but Surrey 
bowled well enough to make 
sure that their target would be 
within range.

wealth team to take part in the 
team competition. Todd also 
convincingly won the individual

Starostin’s attack 
wins him his 
second world title 

From Michael Coleman, Montecatini Terme, Italy 


Nothing could stop Anatoly 
Starostin. of the Soviet Union, 
from winning the world 
championship here yeste rday 
Not even the hero-worshipped 
Daniele Masala, of Italy, die 
Olympic gold medal winner in 
Los Angeles. Starostin immtth- 
ately attacked in the final 4,000 
metres cross country run, dou- 
bling by the 1 . 500 m mark the 
17-second advantage he had 
earned at the time-handicapped 
start. But the Russian's opening 
charge turned out to be un- 
necessary for Masala had al- 
ready settled for, at best, second 
place. 

“I am not stupid,” Masala 
told me when questioned just 
after He had finished a gasping 
third behind colleague Cano 
Massullo. **1 knew I could never 
catch Starostin. What matte red 
was to hold off Dobi the 
Hungarian who started close 
behind me, save my strength 
and then draw away before the 
finish. The team was so vitaL 

Massullo who started 59 sec- 
onds after Starostin bad pulled 
back 41 seconds on Masala, 
running with Dobi. by halfway 
and then lengthened to streak 
home for the silver. 

Masala held the bronze place, 
not wbat Italy really desired, bui 
for a man of 31, married and 
with a child, who has been at the 
top since fourth place at the 
Olympics in Montreal of 1976. 
it was a praiseworthy perfor- 
mance. 

So it was Starostin s second 
worid title — he won in 1983 — 
after taking the Olympic gold in 
1980. Attila Miszer, the defend- 
ing champion from Hungary, 
finished 10th. The Hungarian 
also had to concede first team 
place to the Italians with die 
French winning the bronze. 
Irina Kiselyeva, the Soviet 19- 
year-otd, took the women’s title 
with 5,323 points. 

Our women won the team 
run. Wendy Norman indeed.

Duran fighting on 

Roberto Duran, of Panama, 
the three-times former world 
boxing champion, plans to con- 
tinue competing despite a 
humiliating defeat last month 
against' Robby Sims, of the 
United States. He said: “I'll 
keep fighting until I think I rant 
win any more." Defeat by Sims, 
the WBA’s fourth-ranked 
middleweight, was considered 
by many to mark the end of the 

Panamanian ’s career.

Norman 
loses 
record 
to Tway 

Toledo. Ohio (Reuter) - 
Greg Norman shot a steady 69 
on Saturday to maintain a 
four-stroke lead after three 
rounds of the 6Sih PGA 
Championship. But the round 
of the day went to Bob Tway 
who set a course record 64. 
seven under par. 

Norman, who was angry 
with himself on Friday when 
he struck his first two bogeys 
of the championship, made 
two pars and no bogeys in 
taking his 54-hole total to 202. 
eleven under p 31 "- f° r t ^ lc 
6. 982-yard course at the Inver- 
ness Club. 

Tway. who started the day 
nine shots behind Norman, 
moved into second place with 
a score which bettered by one 
stroke the course record which 
Norman set on his way to the 
first round lead. 

Norman, who lied the ma- 
jor championship record of 63 
on his way to winning last 
month's Open, could not fail 
to be impressed with T way's 
round. “What Bob Tway did 
was fantastic.” Norman said. 
"It was an exceptional score — 
a great, great golf score.” 

Tway. who has won three 
tournaments this year on the 
American lour, made four 
birdies on each nine but he 
also bogeyed the ninth hole, 
where he three-putted from 30 
feel. Two of his birdies, on the 
seventh and 1 7th holes, came 
on putts of 25 feet. 

Norman, on the other hand, 
could not make a putt but he 
chipped in twice, both limes 
to save par. The second chip- 
in came on the 523-yard 13th. 
a par five, which had to be the 
strangest hole of the tour- 
nament. Norman drove into 
the right rough and then 
pulled a six-iron into the left 
rough under a tree. When he 
could not take a normal stance 
because of an overhanging 
branch, he pul the ball back 
into play by hitting it with a 
sand wedge lefl-handed.

Piquet is the new star of the East 


From John Blnnsden 
Budapest 

Nelson Rquet won the first 
world championship race to 
be held in Eastern Europe 
yesterday after a race-long 
battle of tyre-conserving tac- 
tics with his fellow Brazilian. 
Ayrton Senna. Although the 
Hungarian Grand Prix 
quickly developed into a Iwo- 
car race, it nevertheless pro- 
vided one of the best contests 
of the season, with the 
winner's Canon Williams- 
Honda and the runner-up's 
Renault-powered JPS Lotus 
locked in combat virtually all 
the way and lapping the 
remainder of the field in the 
process. 

Senna led at the start and 
kept Piquet at bay for 1 1 laps 
before the Williams driver 
found a way past. By this lime 
other cars were already arriv- 
ing at their pits for their first 
change of rubber, as drivers 
discovered the hard way the 
wisdom, or otherwise, of their 
pre-race tyre choices. Both the 
front runners conserved their 
tyres well and Piquet made his 
last until lap 35 before making 
a change. 

This put Senna back into 
the lead until he, too. stopped 
seven laps later. He was still 
ahead when he rejoined the 
race, but only by a few 
seconds. Then the gap be- 
tween them see-sawed repeat- 
edly as they each took turns to 
cool their rubber for a while in 
their search for more grip. 

By lap 55 out of the 77-lap 
contest they were nose to tail 
and Piquet tried to retake the 
lead at the end of the pits 
straight, only to lock up a rear 
wheel and immediately let 
Senna through again. Two 
laps later he tried a similar 
manoeuvre, but on the out- 
side. and this time he suc- 
ceeded, but only after holding 
one of the most spectacular 
slides seen from the leader of a 
grand prix in years. 

Senna did his best to get 
back on terms but in the end 
the power of the Honda engine 
proved decisive as Piquet set 
the fastest race lap to confirm 



Following the leaden Mansell shows the way to Tam bay and Prost in Budapest. Despite coming third, the British driver still leads the world 


his eventual control of the 
race. 

This time Nigel Mansell 
had to be content with third 
place, a lap behind his team 
colleague, but he was feeling 
far from content as he took his 
position on the victory ros- 
trum. For the second race 
running his car had handled 
badly whereas Piquet's had 
been visibly superior. 

“No doubt the team will 
discover the reason when they 
examine the car in detail, but 
all I know is that I suddenly 
lost all grip about four laps 
into the race.” Mansell said. 
“After the first tyre change 
things got a bit better fora few 
laps but then it all went to 
pieces again.” 

Mansell still leads the world 
championship and his closest 
rival before the race, Alain 
Prost. retired with an electron- 
ics problem (Prost's McLaren 
partner. Keke R os berg, also 
dropped out. with a handling 


problem). But Senna and Pi- 
quet closed the gap to seven 
and eight points respectively. 

British drivers had a gen- 
erally good day. only Derek 
Warwick failing to be among 
the 10 finishers — his 
Brabham ended in the sand 
after an incident with Michele 
Alboreto*5 Ferrari. Johnny 
Dumfries was over the moon 
after scoring his first points for 
JPS Team Lotus in fifth place 
behind Stefan Johansson's 
Ferrari while Martin Brundle 
was rewarded with sixth place 
after a gritty performance in 
his Data General Tyrreli- 
RenaulL 

“It began to slip out of 
fourth gear just before my tyre 
stop, then it gradually got 
worse until ft disappeared 
altogether with 30 laps still to 
go, Brundle said. “Fourth is 
the most important gear of the 
lot here, so all I could do was 
switch off the rev limiter and 
rev the guts out of the thing in 


third, and thank goodness the 
engine took the punishment.” 

Jonathan Palmer was the 
last of the survivors in his 
Zaks peed- “No brakes, turbo 
boost all over the place, and all 
sorts of handling problems, 
but at least we got there ” was 
his post-race summary. The 
Lola-Fonds were going great 
guns early in the race with 
Patrick Tambay fourth and 
Alan Jones sixth but Tambay 
needed a push start when his 
car stalled in the middle of the 
track on its way to finish 
seventh and Jones retired 

In spectator terms the 
Hungarian Grand Prix was a 
resounding success with an 
estimated 200,000 people 
watching from the surround- 
ing grandstands and terraces 
in baking hot weather. For the 
drivers it was an exhausting 
two hours (the flag came out to 
end the race at the time limit 
when only 76 of the scheduled 
77 laps had been completed) 


but Piquet probably spoke for 
all his rivals when he said 
afterwards: “I think we’ll all be 
very happy, indeed, to come 
back here again next year.”

From Michael Scott, Anderstorp 
Lawson, of the Another American, Mike 


Eddie 

United Stales, won his second 
500cc world championship in 
Sweden yesterday with a 
convincing victory over 
Wayne Gardner, his main 
rival. 

Lawson put his works Marl- 
borough Yamaha in the lead 
on the third lap. with 
Gardner's Rothmans Honda 
og his tail and. though the 
Australian appeared to chal- 
lenge, Lawson waited until 
they started lapping slower 
riders at two thirds of the 
distance before making his big 
effort. At the finish he was 1 5 
seconds ahead. 

Gardner had smashed the 
lap record in his pursuit but in 
the end that went to Lawson 
as well.

McElnea, from Humberside, a 
close fourth. The pair, on 
identical works Yamahas, had 
been scrapping fiercely 
throughout the race. It was 
again slow traffic that gave 
Baldwin his one-second 
advantage. 

Raymond Roche, of France,

both on Hondas, and Niall 
Mackenzie, of Scotland,

race. 

Randy Mamola was eighth, 
racing in considerable pain 
with a shoulder broken in 
practice at Silverstone nine 
days ago. 

Lawson, aged 28. has won 
six out of 10 races this year. 
His immaculate performance 
was overshadowed only by the 
question of what would have 
happened had Freddie Spen-

eliminated. 

With one race remaining, 
Gardner fuelled speculation 
that he may switch loyalties 
next year. “This year was for

YACHTING 


Giving a best performance 
and winning the silverware 


Cowes Week, the only nine- 
day week in the calendar 
where the landed gentry and 
their ladies freely mix it on the 
water with up-and-coming tal- 
ent from the lower classes, 
ended with a splash yesterday 
as Sir Thomas Sopwith’s for- 
mer J -Class America's Cup 
challenger slid back into the 
Solent waters at Calshot after 
a £2-mjllion seven-year 
restoration programme 
funded by Elizabeth Meyer, 
an American heiress. 

Despite the low number of 
competitors this year, the 
Sandhurst-sponsored week 
proved as action-backed as 
ever with one sinking, several 
man -over board calls, numer- 
ous dismastings and two near- 
misses with a supertanker. 


By Barry Pickthall 

The one low point was the 
tragic accident during Friday 
night's firework display when 
one among the crowd watch- 
ing from craft anchored out in 
Cowes Roads set off a magne- 
sium distress flare hori- 
zontally which hit and killed a 
person on another boat. 

Perhaps this often-seen but 
highly irresponsible and illegal 
practice of setting off out-of- 
date emergency flares during 
festivities like this will now be 
more rigorously discouraged. 

Winner of yesterday’s much 
depleted class I race was Peter 
Vroon's Formidable. But the 
best performance during the 
week was earned by Roger 
Egfin and his crew. aboard 
Fruesli II who chalked up six 
wins in the Sonata class. And - 


just to show ft was no fluke 
they went out again yesterday 
and cleaned up the class 
silverware. 

They are followed by the 
Swiss crew from Aiglon Col- 
lege sailing Little Eagle in the 
highly-competitive J-24 class 
who shared five wins with the 
J Williams skippered Dragon- 
fly, convincing victors in the 
Dragon class. 

Arachon, competing in- the 
three-man Swallow class, the 
Ufla Fox-designed Flying 15 
Forrader, the daring sailors on 
Darius and South African 
class 2 entry Thee Spears also 
went home last night well 
pleased with their four wins 
apiece.

1 3 — beating the previous best 
of 10 held jointly by Gordon 
Grcenidge, of Hampshire, and 
Graham Stevenson, of

ATHLETICS 

Selectors’ 
changes 
hit Solly 

By Pat Butcher 

Athletics Correspondent 

The British Athletics selec- 
tors are often spoiled for 
choice, but they more often 
seem to be spoiling for a fight 
with their selection policy, or 
rather lack of il For ft seems 
that Jon Solly, the Common- 
wealth 10.000 metres cham- 
pion, who was selected last 
Wednesday to run in the 5,000 
metres in the European 
championships in Stuttgart, 
will be replaced by Tim 
Hutchings when the team is 
announced this morning. 

There should not be too 
much argument about 
Hutchings's inclusion with 
Steve Ovett and Jack Buckner, 
since the trio had a dean 
sweep of the medals at the 
Commonwealth Games, and 
Hutchings's sprint to third 
place in the 3.000 metres at 
Crystal Palace on Friday night 
(ahead of Ovett and Solly) 
indicates a move back towards 
the form which took him to 
fourth in the Olympic Games 
two years ago. 

But Solly is entitled to feel 
bard done by. since only he 
and Ovett have bettered the 
13min 25sec qualifying time 
which the British selectors put 
down as a guideline, instead of 
the official European mark of 
13.40at the start of the season. 
And Solly felt that two 10,000 
metre races, the AAA and the 
Commonwealth, both of 
which he won, were sufficient 
for this season. It remains to 
be seen whether Solly will take 
the vacant 10,000 metres place 
for Stuttgart. 

Steve Cram, the double 
Commonwealth champion, 
will be offered the same 800 
and 1,500 metres places for 
the European championships, 
as will Sebastian Coe. Cram 
has had to pull out of today’s 
Mobil Grand Prix meeting in 
Budapest because of a calf 
injury, which he believes will 
keep him out of training at 
least until Wednesday, and 
out of racing until next 
Monday’s meeting in 
Birmingham. 

Coe, recuperating from the 
throat infection which caused 
his withdrawal at Edinburgh, 
was turned down by Swiss 
officials when he asked to run 
800 metres in their national 
championships yesterday. Coe 
wanted it as preparation for 
hi4 1,500 metres in Zurich on 
Wednesday. 

Allan Wells’s return to form 
ha seamed him a place in both 
sprints in Stuttgart, but Wells 
has chosen instead to run the 
200 metres in Budapest today. 
Other British competitors in- 
clude David Sharpe, the world 
junior 800 metres champion, 
who has been chosen as 
reserve for that distance for 
Stuttgart, Fatima Whitbread 
and Geoff Parsons, who 
equalled his UK high jump 
record of 2.28 metres at 
Crystal Palace on Friday. 


Athletes 

must 

play the 
game 


DAVID 

MILLER 


The absence of Said Aouita 
from the - take a deep breath 
- FAC-Miller Lit e-Mobil 
Grand Prix ou Friday night, 
an anri-dimax for many Brit- 
ish enthusiasts, will oblige the 
International A mat ear Athlet- 
ics Federation to introduce a 
system of disciplinary mea- 
sures in conjunction with 
Grand Prix promoters when ft 
meets before the final in Rome 

next month. 

As John Holt, general sec- 
retary of the IAAF, perti- 
nently asks: “At what point do 
we have to say that the athlete 
is no longer a free agent?” 
Professional athletes can no 
longer hide behind a doctor's 
certificate. 

Dave Bedford, the IACs 
energetic and ■ slightly emo- 
tional organizer, had beea 
promising one of the most 
attractive meetings ever staged 
at Crystal Palace, with Aouita 
the star turn. What happened? 
R amour started to circulate 
last Monday that Aouita was 
doubtful, with an alleged in- 
jury. On Wednesday, he ran 
the third fastest ever 5)000 
metres in Corunna; doubts 
about Crystal Palace contin- 
ued to moult, Bedford could 
not or would not confirm or 
deny Aouita's participation, 
television cynically con tinned 
to plug his presence: and be 
fatted to arrive. 

Last year. Holt attempted to 
impose a rale that athletes 
who withdrew from a Grand 
Prix in which they were sched- 
uled to appear should be 
suspended for a week so as to 
exclude them from the next 
tournament, but the promoters 
rejected the proposal. 

There is seme evidence that 
Aouita currently does have a 
musde condition on account of 
which he can lap at 62 seconds 
but cannot sprint at 55. That 
may legitimately be so. Holt 
will propose in Rome that any 
athlete capable of running 
only one race in any week mast 
commit his appearance to a 
Grand Prix or not ran at alL 
And he will again recommend 
the one week suspension for 
non-appearance. 


Protection needed 


Mobil have to have some 
protection for their sponsor- 
ship of a fixture system which 
has bronght some coherence to 
what was previously a lottery 
of wheelers and dealers, on 
and off tiie track. The diffi- 
culty is that wider athletic 
legislation, it is the national 
federations who have to disci- 
pline competitors. Aouita, a 
Moroccan, lives, and primar- 
ily runs, in Italy. It is symp- 
tomatic of the disunity within 
British domestic athletics that 
on what should be the biggest 
night of the year, neither Nigel 
Cooper, the British Board 
secretary, nor Andy Norman, 
the subventions co-ordinator, 
were in attendance. 
Tweedkdummery lives on. 

• Ten days ago in Edinburgh, 
attending the Commonwealth 
Games, Mrs Thatcher was 
saying unofficially, on the eve 
of a new football season, what 
an improvement there had 
been in crowd behaviour in the 
past 12 months. My comment 
to her, at a reception by the 
Sports Aid Foundation, of 
which her husband is a direc- 
tor, was that however effective 
the control inside English 
grounds, the test would come 
the next ' time the English 
played in Europe. 1 was think- 
ing of the European champion- 
ship match in Stockholm next 
month. The test arrived sooner 
than expected. 


Ban should stay 


The truth is that hooligan- 
ism is a product of the 
combination of two 
characteristics: drunkenness 
and a liberally free society in 
which anarchy flourishes. It is 
as common in Benidorm as a 
Brussels stadium. Sadly but 
unavoidably, English dabs 
should continue to be banned 
from European football indefi- 
nitely. It is not oar football, of 
coarse, which is on trial bet 
our society: a society which 
hurls chairs at a Bnmo fight 
and teams coloured cricketers- 

We can argue ourselves 
dizzy about what the police, 
the football authorities or the 
consuls should have done to be 
more prepared to cope with 
last week's outrage. Yet noth- 
ing would have eliminated the 
basic problem: that such peo- 
ple exist. The one man with 
sense was the Dutch captain 
who dumped them back at 
Harwich. 

John Smith, the chairman 

the Sports Council and of 
Liverpool, had rightly said 
before last week's incident 
that it is far too soon to 
contemplate a retort to the 
European battlefield. The slo- 
gan “Core Hooliganism — Ban 
Football'* nay lave no logic, 
bat it is anacceptaMe teat 
football should be permitted to 
provide hooliganism with a 
vehicle.
