at the Trades Union Congress

The Labour leader is deter-

strike — enshrined in the 
Conservatives Trade Union 
Act, 1984 — must be retained 
in any future legislation, a 
pledge underlined in the jomt 
Labour/TUC strategy docu- 
ment on the issue. 

But the conference, starting 
in two weeks' time, win be the 
setting for a concerted bid by

A spokesman for the Sudan 
People's Liberation Army, 
which for the past three years 
has been fighting a guerrilla 
war in the counuy's south, 
claimed responsibility. 

The SPLA had warned ear- 
lier that any aircraft flying 
over foe “war zone" would 
risk being shot down. It said it 
had banned all flights, includ- 
ing those being made by relief 
agencies, because the Sudan 
Army was using them to build 
up its position there, where 
several garrisons had been 
besieged by rebels. 

Ail flights to the southern 
Sudan were suspended yes- 
terday including an Inter- 
national Red Cross airlift of 
relief food from Entebbe in 
Uganda. 

Employees of Sudan Air- 
ways in Khartoum launched a 
three-day strike in protest 
against the lack of safety for 
planes and against a delay in 
reporting foe crash. Pas- 
sengers at Khanoum airport 
also protested, throwing 
stones onto foe runway and 
delaying incoming flights 
from the north. 

Aid agencies recently ap- 
pealed to both foe Sudanese 
Government and the SPLA to

Fury over 
sanctions 
vote in US 

By Our Foreign Staff 

The US Administration is 
furious at what is seen as a 
sharp rebuff by the Repub- 
lican-controlled Senate over 
South African sanctions, al- 
though its public response to 
Friday's Senate vote for a 
package of restrictive mea- 
sures has been muted. 

Mr Larry Speakes, the 
White House spokesman, said 
the vote would “impede" 
peaceful change in South Af- 
rica but made no mention of a 
possible presidential veto. Pri- 
vately. however, officials are 
expressing anger and dismay. 

In South Africa President 
Botha rejected foe vote as : 
“interference "

because of the fighting and 
communications have been 
cut, making it impossible to 
move food by road or river An 
SPLA spokesman here re- 
cently admitted that both 
sides were using hunger as a 
weapon. 

Last week the SPLA agreed 
to allow relief supplies to be 
moved in. provided the flights 
were made under its auspices. 
That agreement, however, was 
later withdrawn. 

An SPLA official here 
daimed that 13,000 Libyans 
were massing in western Su- 
dan to assist the Government 
in its drive against the SPLA. 
There has been no indepen- 
dent confirmation of this. 

Talks bet wen the SPLA and 
the Government have been 
going on in Addis Ababa, the 
Ethiopian capital, for more 
than two weeks with no 
apparent result. Both sides 
remain sharply divided — the 
SPLA demanding repeal in 
southern areas of foe cont- 
roversial Sharia law, which 
was introduced throughout 
Sudan by former President 
Nimeiry. 

Mr Sadeq al-Mahdi. foe 
Prime Minister, has set up a 
committee to consider how 
the law could be repealed, but 
the SPLA regards foe Govern- 
ment attitude as unbending.

Fowler tackles 
hospital lists 
and plans 160 
new buildings 


By Jill Sherman 


: Mr Norman Fowler, Sec- 
; rotary of State for Social 
-Services, is to use the Con- 
servative Party conference in 
October to launch a set of 
. initiatives to help to reduce 
waiting lists, and to announce 

■ details of an ambitious health 
■service building programme 

involving 160 new hospitals. 

Last month, Mr Fowler 
asked regions to prepare their 
r.pwn action plans on how to 
ensure that the 661.249 people 
now waiting for in-patient 
treatment get seen more 
quickly. 

■ The regional chairmen have 
been asked to report back by 
October, although they will 
‘ then be given three years to 
produce results. 

Reducing the length of wait- 
ing lists and the time people 

■ have to wait for operations is 
known to be one of the 
Government's lop priorities 
in the run-up to a general 

■ election, and it is likely that 

■ these plans will form the basis 
of Mr Fowler’s speech in 

■ Bournemouth. 

Possible measures which 
have already been used in 
some health authorities in- 
clude: allowing health authori- 
ties to pay for treatment for 


NHS patients in private hos- 
pitals; reallocating theatre ses- 
sions by specialty; referring 
patients to other districts 
where waiting lists are shorter 
or where there is spare operat- 
ing capacity, ana building 
temporary operating theatres 
to clear backlogs. 

Mr Fowler may expect most 
health authorities to im- 
plement these measures with- 
out extra resources. 

He is likely to link the 
measures to a comprehensive 
building programme for the 
next few years. It would be 
funded with money already 
earmarked for the health ser- 
vice. 

Mr Fowler is also concerned 
by problems facing inner city 
hospitals, and teaching hos- 
pitals in particular, which are 
affected by the Government's 
policy of redistributing re- 
sources to areas where services 
are underdeveloped. 

A working party looking 
into the wbole method of 
distribution is expected to 
report at the end of the year, 
but interim measures may be 
needed in the face of the 
increasing number of cam- 
paigns by doctors and Tory 
MPs for more funding. 


Crossing 
humps to 
slow cars 

Legislation is being in- 
troduced this autumn to allow 
local authorities to build 
“sleeping policemen” at some 
. zebra crossings to force ve- 
hicles to slow down. 

Mr John Moore. Secretary 
of State for Transport, wants 
to relax the 1983 Transport 
Act after recommendations 
from safety experts that pedes- 
trians are too vulnerable at 
zebra crossings on winding 
roads with fast-moving traffic. 

The Automobile Associ-, 
ation said that the humps 
would force motorists to re- 
duce speed to IS mph. 

“If it cuts down on the 
number of roads deaths, then 
we welcome it, but we are 
doubtful.” it said. 

“Our main objection is that 
drivers will be concentrating 
on the humps and it will be 
one more complication on the 
roads.” 

The association added that 
the outcome would depend 
mainly on the reaction from 
the local authorities. 


Parkinson 

return 

‘unlikely’ 

Mr Cedi Parkinson, the 
Cabinet minister forced to 
resign after the disdosure of 
his affair with Miss Sara 
Keays. his former secretary, is 
unlikely to return to a prom- 
inent political position before 
the next election, senior gov- 
ernment sources said yes- 
terday (Nicholas Wood 
writes). 

But he may well play a 
behind-the-scenes role assist- 
ing the Prime Minister 
Reports in Sunday news- 
papers said that Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher wanted to make him 
chief of staff of her private 
office to help her polish the 
Government's image. 

Mr Anthony Beaumont- 
Dark, a leading backbencher, 
said that making Mr Parkin- 
son a chief of staff was a 
tremendous idea because it 
would revive his career with- 
out subjecting him to the full 
pressures of Cabinet office. 

But other backbenchers in- 
sisted that an immediate recall 
smacked of political fantasy. 


Missing husband talks to the police 



Mr Robert Healey, the 
missing husband wanted for 
questioning about the murder 
of his wife and stepdaughter, 
(all seen together above) was 
being questioned by the police 
last night 

Mr Healey, wed 37, walked 
into New Scotland Yard in 
London 00 Saturday night. 


Det Chief Sept Cfive Atkin- 
son, the man leading the 
inquiry, said. 

Officers engaged in the 
inquiry at Stockport, where 
the family lived, were sent to 
London and Mr Healey later 
travelled under escort to 
Stockport. 

It is understood that Mr 


Healey had been bring hi a 
flat in the Harrow Road area 
of west London. 

The naked bodies of Mrs 
Greeha Healey and hear daugh- 
ter, Marie, aged 13, were 
found in a shallow grave in a 
wood In North Wales on 
Friday night. 

Mr Atkinson said yesterday 


that Mrs Healey, aged 40, had 
died from multiple fractures of 
the stall, and the girl had been 
suffocated. 

Detectives have been look- 
ing for Mrs Healey and her 
daughter since Mr Healey left 
a smride note and his clothes 
at Prestatyn, North Wales, 
two weeks ago. 


Owen call 
for nuclear 
test ban 

By Nicholas Wood 
Political Reporter 

Dr David Owen yesterday 
urged Mrs Margaret Thatcher 
to press for a comprehensive 
ban on the testing of unclear 
weapons. 

The Social Democratic 
Party leader said that his 
recent d iscussio ns with sci- 
entists and foreign leaders had 
convinced him the time is ripe 
for such an agreement. 

He claimed that technologi- 
cal progress made Western 
fears of cheating by the Soviet 
Union outdated. 

In a letter to the Prime 
Minister, Dr Owea said: “I 
think therefore yon would 
have to agree that things are 
changing rapidly and I would 
hope that the British Govern- 
ment might reconsider its 
position and become a positive 
advocate for progress in this 
area... 

“Scientists are now con- 
fident of being able to detect 
any test over 10 kOotons, and 
they are becoming more con- 
fident that there are very few 
tests of below one ldloton that 
would not now be detected.” 

A possible agreement on a 
comprehensive test ban b 
corned by the Geneva talks on 
arms control between the 
United States and the Soviet 
Union. 


‘Kipper’ link to second girl 


A secretary who dis- 
appeared on Friday conkl be 
another victim of the “Mr 
Kipper” who abducted Miss 
Susannah Lamplugh, as estate 
agent, 19 days ago. 

The police released an 
artist’s impression yesterday 
of a man they would like to 
interview in connection with 
the disappearance of Miss 
Sarah Lambert, who has not 
been seen since being offered a 
“fantastic” job as personal 
assistant It is strikingly simi- 
lar to that of Mr Kipper. 

“Mr Simmons” is also dark- 
haired, smart tanned, with an 
almost identical mouth and 
hooded eyes, but unlike Mr 
Kipper he wore his hair 
forward and swept to one sitfe. 
“Mr Simmons” is described as 
about 40, 5 ft 10 ins tafl, slim, 
with dark hair and a London 
accent 

Miss Lamplugh, aged 25, 
disappeared after taking a 
man to see an empty house in 
Shorrolds Road, Fulham, 
south-west London. Miss 


Lambert also 25, vanished 
after setting out to meet a man 
at South Ealing Tube station. 

Mr Brown said that Miss 
Lambert's kidnapper, who 
called himself J. Simmons, 
appeared “very cunning, cold 
and calculating.” Miss Lam- 
bert of Churchfield Road, 
Ealing, was last seen at break- 
fast on Friday when she went 
to keep a rendezvous with the 

maii- 


She said she was going with 
her new employer for a work- 
ing weekend at the Grown 
Hotel in Amersham, 
Buckinghams hire. 

Anyone with information 
conerning Miss Lambert 
should call the police on 01- 
900-7251, 01-900-7252 or 01- 
900-7212. When last seen she 
was wearing a green half- 
length dress and had a cream 
suitcase.

until 


A leading Conservative law- 
yer yesterday dismissed as 
nonsense a Labour claim that 
the Government is indulging 
in “cynical contortions” in its 
attempt to stop publication in 
Australia of a book by a 
former MI5 officer, Mr Peter 
Wright The book alleges that 
treachery is rife in the security 
services. 

The charge by Mr John* 
Morris, Labour's legal aftaiis 
spokesman, was made after 
the Government tokl the New 
South Wales Supreme Court 
that “for the purposes of these 
proceedings” it . admitted the 
truth of the allegations made 
in the book. These indude the 
claim that the late Sir Roger 
Hollis, the former head of 
MI5, was a Russian agent 

Later, Sir Michael Havers, 


Attorney General, and Sir 
Patrick Mayhew, Solidtor 
General, issued a statement 
saying the admission had no 
validity outside foe proceed- 
ings. 

Yesterday, Mr Ivan Law- 
rence, QC foe Tory member 
for Burton, said Mr Morris 
had completely misunder- 
stood ministers' intentions. 

“This wasn't an admission 
that foe allegations were true. 
The Government was saying 
no more than 'let us assume 
for foe sake of argument they 
may be true to save lime in 
investigating all these 
allegations'” Speaking on 
BBC Radio 4, Mr Lawrence 
said this was normal legal 
procedure and had been done 
to dear foe way for the 
Crown's case 


Lord Fitt 
for heart 
operation 

Lord Fitt, aged 60, former 
leader of foe Social Demo- 
cratic and Labour Party in 
Ulster, is to have major heart 
surgery tomorrow after tests 
discovered be is adfering 
from damaged and diseased- 
arteries. 

Formerly known as Gerry 
Fitt, the life peer is to have 
bypass surgery after a. heart 
attack 12 days ago and win be 
operated on in the National 
Heart Hospital in London. 

Hxs wife Ann said yesterday 
after the couple had attended 
mass near, their home in 
London: “He is being very 
brave and courageous about 
the whole thing. I hope this 
will make him slow down a 
bit.” 


World Chess Championship 

Time beats Karpov 
in eighth game 

By Raymond Keene, Chess Correspondent . 

I have witnessed crowds for Knight and, freed with foe 


dilemma of where to place his 
attacked Rook, the former 
world champion allowed his 
clock flag to fall, thus indicat- 
ing that he bad lost on time 

In the final position a likely 
continuation would be 31 
RdZ 32 Qe7, RddS, 33 Rxf7. 
when black is in grave danger. 

The match score is now two 
wins to Kasparov, one to 
Karpov, with five games 
drawn. Unless an adjourn- 
ment is sought, foe match 
resumes tonight. 



going berserk at the conclu- 
sion of chess games in Mos- 
cow but in London on Friday 
night for foe first time I saw 
Bntish chess enthusiasts nse 
to their feet in a storm of 
applause. 

Some called out Gary 
Kasparov's name as chan 
lenger Anatoly Karpov lost 
foe eighth game of foe world 
chess championship on time 
forfeit 

At the moment of Karpov s 
[.loss grandmasters were soil 
totally confused as to whether 
the former champion was fee- 
ing defeat across foe board. 

As Dutch grandmaster Jan 
Timman, fifth ranked player 
in foe world vainly sought to 
explain foe final position in 
The Times commentary 
room, the audience swept out 
of the room and streamed 
towards the ballroom of the 
Park Lane Hotel, central Lon- 
don, where most of foe spec- 
tators were still applauding 

The opening, a Queen’s 
Gambit Declined, seemed 
headed for equality but on 
move 16 Karpov opted for an 
incredibly risky pawn snatch 
with bis Queen on foeextreme 
edge of the board. 

White’s pieces swirled 
menacingly without, however, 
being able to land a decisive 
blow, but as Karpov fell into 
deeper and deeper trouble 
with his clock eveiyone in foe 
hall sensed a decisive result 
was in foe offing. 

On move 31 Kasparov de- 
clined Karpov’s offer of Rook

Secrets Act attacked 


The Campaign for Freedom 
of Information, a pressure 
group led by Mr Des Wilson, 
foe Liberal Party president, 
will today mark the seventy- 
fifth anniversary of the Of- 
ficial Secrets Act with a party 
at the House of Commons. 

The group wants to register 
a protest at the long life of the 
statute. 

The campaign will put on 
parade five people charged 
under the Act 
They indude Mr Jonathan 
Ailken, Conservative MP for 
Thanet South, who was un- 
successfully prosecuted for 


passing on details or govern- 
ment policy during the Ni- 
gerian civil war. ana Mr Clive 
Panting, the Civil. Servant 
who was acquitted of charges 
that he unlawfully passed 
information about foe Falk- 
lands conflict to Mr Tam 
Dalyeil. 

The first Official Secrets Act 
was passed in 1889, but in 
Spite of later amendments, the 
Act in force today is that 
passed in 191 1 during foe prc- 
First World War period when 
the Government feared Gor- 
man spies were , active in 
Britain. 


Tourism in Northern Ireland 


Visitors deterred by image of trouble 


By Richard Ford 

Far from the troubled image 
of Northern Ireland portrayed 
around the world, the Japa- 
nese Ambassador to Loudon 
yesterday strode the g re ens 
and feinrays of one of the 
province’s golf courses. 

With seven Japanese 
businessmen he was setting an 
example that the tourist board 
wishes others would follow by 
seeing for himself another aide 
to Ulster life. 

Mr Toshhio Yamasaki was 
fulfilling a promise made after 
his first visit three months ago 
by taking friends for a golfing 
weekend at the resort of 
Newcastle, Co Down. “1 like 
the beautiful scenery and the 
people in Northern Ireland are 
very kind to os, I hope my 
guests will be craning back,” 
he said. 

But the pictures of riokoce 
and disastrous summer 
weather are causing a slump in 
the province’s tounst industry: 
foe number of visitors is 
expected to fall for the second 
year running. 

Yet visitors need baldly see 


the worst effects of “loyalist” 
opposition to the Anglo-Irish 
agreement or the results of 
Provisional IRA terrorism. 
Most parts of the province 
remain hugely untouched by 
foe violence in its two cities 
and flashpoint towns. 

With lakes, hills, a dramatic . 
coastline and sparsely 
vehicled roads, foe province 
has much to offer. Since foe 
start of the present “troubles”, 
die Northern Ireland Tourist 
Board . has faced an uphill 
struggle to persuade foe world 
there Is another side to that 
seen on telerisou and in 
newspapers. 

The peak year was 1967, 
when 1.08 million visitors 
arrived for 24 boors or more. 
Nine years later that had 
fallen to 432,000, rising slowly 
to 908,000 in 1984 and bring- 
ing predictions that foe million 
figure would soon be passed. ■ 

A poor summer last year 
saw a drop of 5 per cent, to 
863,000, and an international 
company of travel consultants 
predicts that there could be a 
10 per emit fell in 1986. The 


million figure now appears a 
distant hope. 

The consultants’ report 
said: “Although Northern Ire- 
land is increasingly recognized 
as an excellent tourist dekttut- 
tMHi by the travel trade, politi- 
cal troubles in the province 
continue to impede and hinder 
further progress.” 

Last year 419,000 visitors 
were from Great Britain, 

331.000 from- the Irish Repub- 
lic, 63,000 from North Amer- 
ica. 28,000 from Europe and 

22.000 from foe rest Of foe 
worlds Of those, 111,000 were 
on holiday. 

With unpredictable 
weather, foe tourist board has 
promoted specialist activity 
holidays such as fishing and 
cruising in the Co Fermanagh 
lakeland, sailing along the 
coast and golfing and pony 
trekking. 

The German, Dutch and 
Swiss return annually but the 
British marker remains a 
problem because ■ of the 
amount of coverage the prov- 
ince receives in the media. 

Mr Eric Tboriey, of the 


tourist board, said: “We are 
stowty w arning through, mak- 
ing people realize it is not as 
bad as it appears, but with 
each upsurge in violence foe 
numbers dip again.” 

The industry employes 
9,000 people and during the 
next three years another 600 
jobs are expected to be created 
as people are encouraged to 
develop aa area that many 
believe has been neglected 
during foe past 30 years. 

But while the province at- 
tempts to attract more visitors, 
78 per cent of its own holiday- 
makers leave for destinations 
away from home. Only 22 per 
cent remain in Ulster- 
. The republic also expects 
tittle growth hi its tourist 
industry because of the gen- 
eral eoonomfc situation, disas- 
trous weather and the 
unsettled political climate. 
Visitors from North America 
are expected to be as much as 
25 per cent down. 

The republic is during tour- 
ist board .offices in Bir- 
mingham, Manchester, 
Glasgow, San Francisco ami 
Brussels 


Inquiry into Ulster work threats 


Continued from page 1 
company say that foe names 
are tittle more than those of 
Caiholics.The company said it 
was investigating! 

The incident cranes as the 
outlawed loyalist paramilitary 
group, foe Ulster Freedom 
Fighters, issued a warning to 
Catholics to stay away from 
places of work In largely 
loyalist areas during times of 
heightened tension. 

Tension is high in Lisburn, 
a small predominantly loyal- 
ist town several miles from 
Belfast, where Catholics have 
come to fear the sound of 

f. 


breaking glass followed by foe 
smefl of burning as their front 
room erupts in flame. 

The intimidation is aimed 
not only at Catholic fezniltes 
but at those in mixed mar- 
riages. Such attacks have 
forced more than 300 people 
to flee their homes during the 
past four months. 

In Lisburn, about 124 
Catholic families have been 
attacked on mixed housing 
estates. So fer 77 families have 
been . rehoused with many 
returning to Catholic housing 
estates in west BelfastAa other 


47 are awaiting suitable 
accommodation. 

Mr Seamus Close, an Alli- 
ance party councillor,, said: 
“This is part, of a concerted 
effort to drive Catholics out of 
tbe town. The * Catholic 
community is being 

terrorised-” 

The petrol-bomb attacks be- 
gan shortly after the loyalist 
“day of action” in March 
when gangs intimidated police 
and prison . officers. When 
those stopped, the targets 
became nationalist families. 

. Some, such as Mr John 
McMahon,, aged 42, whose; 


home was attacked last week, 
have vowed to remain on the 
mixed housing estate which 
has been their home for the 
past 18 years but others have 
moved out. 

During sporadic distur- 
bances in eight towns during 
the weekend, loyalists and 
nationalists dashed with po- 
lice, injuring 16 RUC officers. 
Six civilians were slightly 
injured and the security forces 
made 75 arrests. 

Plastic bullets were fired to 
disperse small groups of riot- 
ing mobs. ' 


Fears for

Continaed from page 1 


walk to foe small settlement of 
Skardu. . 

Reports yesterday from 
Islambad and Warsaw in- 
dicated that two Poles. 
Droboslawa Miodowicz-Wolf, 
the daughter of a newly elected 
member of tbe Politburo, and 
Wojeiech Wroz fell to their 
deaths during foe descent after 
a technical mishap involving 
weak ropes. 

Two Austrians. Alfred 
Alsredmitzer and Tadeusz 
Piogrowski, were believed to 
have died of hunger and 
oxygen starvation. 

_ It was not dear whether foe 
eight were climbing as one 
team or had split up. The only 
survivors appeared to be foe 
two other. Austrians. Willy 
Pauer and Mr Diembcreer, 
both of whom are suffering 
from severe frost bite. 

Mr Diembetger. a camera- 
man aged 54. said from the 
hospital in Skardu: “We 
waited and waited, bat the 
storm would not abate. So 
Willy and I broke through 
when we saw a chance on 
August 10.” Everyone would 
have made the descent safely 
but for foe terrible weather. 

He and . Mrs Tullis were 
believed to have reached foe 
summit of foe north-west 
ridge on August 4. Then foe 
atrocious weather that has 
frequently bedevilled teams 
on “Savage Mountain" this 
year struck again.' 

Mr Rouse, who attended 
Birkenhead School before get- 
ting an honours . degree in 
mathematics from Cambridge 
University, took up climbing 
atfoe age of 17. After a trip to 
foe Andes he joined Chris 
Bonnington on the. first 
successful attempt on Mount 
Rongur m the Himalayas .in

An amnesty proposal that evhably lead to controversy if

By David Sapsted 

evnably lead to controversy if ing to it easier for people 


frauds escape tax bills running 
into miUiohs of pounds is to 
be submitted to Treasury min- 
isters at the end of the month. 

The proposal would entail 
the Inland Revenue -ignoring 


merit. But Mr Graham 
Mather, bead of the institute's 
policy unit, believes the plan 
is in tune with government 
thinking. 

• "Whether it is accepted or

eanungs of some social se- cerned yon are about im- 
purity recipient^ if they opted employment and how politic- 
fora new, simplified system of ally important it is for you to 


getting self-employed status. 

The scheme, intended to 
dovetail with the Govertt- 
menfs attack on the black 
economy, is aimed at getting 
people off unemployment 
benefit and legitimately 
operating as selfemployed. 

Under the proposals, drawn 
up by the Institute of Direc- 
tors (IoDX the amnesty would 
apply only to people in areas 
of high unemployment who 
had been . “moonli ghting " 
while receiving benefit, and 
not to those in parts of the 
country where unemployment 
was lower. . 

The selective nature of the 
scheme and public antipathy 
towards lax dodgers will Lo-

Police postings abroad 
to halt drug trafficking 

By Stewart TemHer.Crime Reporter 
Senior police drugs invest]- nabis and cocaine from South 


gators are hoping to post more 
detectives abroad as 
permameni tiason officers 
with foreign forces in Europe 
and the United States. 

It would be part of an 
expanded campaign against 
leading international drug 
traffickers which is under 
discussion at Scotland Yard, 
the Foreign Office and the 
Home Office. 

The moves come when 
greater European co-operation 
on drug problems is being 
discussed within the EEC this 
autumn. 

Liaison officers, usually 
based at British embassies, 
provide ways to speed up co- 
operation and exchanges of 
intelligence. 

Scotland Yard already has a 
liaison officer working in 
Amsterdam but an officer for 
Madrid has been proposed 
before the end of the year. 

The search has started for 
an officer of the right rank and 
experience who speaks 
Spanish. 

Investigators are worried 
that Spain is being used as a 
main staging point for can- 


America. 

The Spanish authorities 
have already agreed to a 
Scandinavian officer working 
there. 

Senior British officers 
would also like to strengthen 
the Dutch liaison operation by 
posting a second man to The 
Netherlands. 

They would like to post a 
man full-time in Washington 
to work with the federal 
agencies and Canadian 
authorities and monitor the 
American hemispheres. 

Senior officers say that the 
liaison officers help to im- 
prove the flow of information 
and investigations. - 

Other countries including 1 
West Germany and Chnada , 
have a large number of baton, 
officers working m different 
capitals. 

The Drug Enforcement 
Agency, which ‘ heads the 
American operation against 
traffickers, now has three 
agents in Britain. 

British customs officers 
have already been posted to a 
number of regions including 
South America and the Mid- 
dle East. 


Curb on 
untrained 
electricians 

A nationwide campaign will 
be launched next month to try 
to curb the activities of un-

tricians. 

The Government will be 
urged to impose tougher con- 
trols on the trade by the 
Electrical Contractors Associ- 
ation. representing Britain's 
leading companies, which 
says: “At the moment anyone 
can become an electrician 
simply by having a business

British Gas and John l- gmg

They are contesting writs, 
alleging negligence and breach 
of duty, issued by 68 survi- 
vors. insurance companies

Fanners can be fined up to

Office staff poorly trained 

By Lucy Hodges, Education Correspondent 






mm 




The education and training 
of the average office worker in 
France is superior to that in 
England, according to re- 
search published by The Na- 
tional Institute of Economic 
and Social Research. 

France produces 10 times 
more trained office staff than 
Britain, and they reach higher 
standards than their British 
counterparts both in office 
skills and in general educa- 
tion, Miss Hilary Steed man, 
anther of the document, says. 

Qualified French workers 
have studied a foreign lan- 
guage but this is the exception 
m England. 

“It has been clear for some 
time that the limited abilities 
of secretarial and clerical staff 
in Britain to handle simple 
inquiries in a foreign language 
have hindered export sales,” 
the document says. 

A team from the institute 
examined education and train- 
ing for office work in Britain 
and France. 

They found that French 
firms are increasingly recruit- 
ing only highly qualified cleri- 
cal staff, and giving them far 
more responsibility through 
new technology. 


French employers are look- 
ing for office workers with the 
Bac G. This is the equivalent 
of two A levels, but covers a 
broader range of subjects, half 
of which are geared to office 
skills. 

By contrast, British employ- 
ers continue to recruit young 
people with good O levels and 
a typing qualification, and give 
them fairly menial tasks. 

The main difference be- 
tween French and British 
training for clerical work is 
that French students go on 
fall-time courses lasting two or 
three years, and this forms 
part of their secondary 
schooling. 

British' trainees go on short 
foil or part-time courses after 
they leave schooL 

French pupils can choose 
between four nationally- 
administered levels of voca- 
tional examinations and 
qualifications below university 
standard, which test a range of 
vocational skills and knowl- 
edge. 

British clerical qualifica- 
tions tend to be based on tests 
in single subjects, and are 
narrow and easier to master. 

-ini rial qualifications, such 


as CSE and BTEC General 

(Business and Tech n i cian 
Education Council), although 
laying the foundations of 
training, can no longer be 
regarded as sufficient prepara- 
tion for efficient work within a 
modem communications 
system.” the document says. 

“Very many more of 
Britain's potential office 
employees win need to be 
educated to the s tan dard of 
approximately Royal Society 
of Arts Grade n- encompass- 
ing business calculations, 
bookkeeping, keyboarding 
and business practice — if its 
industry and commerce is to 
have at its disposal a clerical 
workforce of the same calibre 
as has for long been regarded 
as normal in France and 
Germany."

Energy saving: 1 


New town points the 
way to a world of 
fuel efficient houses 


On a seven-acre site at 
Milton Keynes. 32 developers 
from the United Kingdom 
and overseas have built 50 of 
the most energy efficient 
houses to be seen in Britain. 
Designs range from the con- 
ventional to the most imagi- 
natively futuristic, costing 
from less than £30.000 for a 
one-bedroom flat to more 
than £150,000 for a detached 
house. The development re- 
flects a growing awareness of 
the importance of home-run- 
ning costs as energy prices rise 
and modern living demands 
more and more power-hungry 
gadgets. 

Mixers, microwaves and 
whirlpool baths all add to 
costs, and there is likely to be 
an increasing emphasis in the 
future on energy saving, a 
campaign backed with enthu- 
siasm by Mr Peter Walker, 
Secretary of State for Energy. 

With the support of his 
department, the Milton 
Keynes Development 
Corporation is mounting this 
first exhibition in its energy 
park, with the Anglia Building 
Society as co-sponsors. The 
four-week exhibition is ex- 
pected to attract 100,000 vis- 
itors. and will be followed by a 
special ‘business week'

tion techniques and energy

UK, Scandinavia. West Ger- 
many. the United States and 
Canada is incorporated in 
designs from Britain, Sweden, 
Finland. Canada, Germany, 
Denmark and Poland. 

The houses demonstrate the 
substantial savings that can be 
made by ensuring good insula- 
tion and include a whole range 
of measures such as solar 
systems, heat storage, heat 
pumps and low energy lighting 
to bring down costs. 

To measure savings, Milton 
Keynes has developed its own 
energy cost index, which pro- 
duces an estimate of a house's 
iota! annual energy costs per 
square metre. 


At present a house built to 
UK building regulations 
would achieve an energy cost 
index rating of about 170, 
higher than that of homes 
built to the standards of many 
other countries. The Milton 
Keynes Development 
Corporation has seta standard 
for the exhibition bouses of 
120. representing a saving in 
the region of 30 per cent. 
Energy saving has been a 
priority from the earliest plan- 
ning stages of the energy park, 
and detailed she studies, 
including the most com- 
prehensive micro-climate re- 
search undertaken in the UK, 
have produced planning and 
landscaping guidelines. 

The planting of wind shel- 
ters and earth shaping, to slow 
down crosswinds and deflect 
cold air currents, is estimated 
to reduce annual home foe!

Police authority 
left to deride 


By Stewart Tendb 

Preparations are under way 
for a security company to 
deliver copies of the report on 
Mr John Stalker, the sus- 
pended deputy chief constable 
of Greater Manchester, to 
more than 40 members of the 
force's police authority. 

Later this week the author- 
ity will examine recommenda- 
tions in the report by Mr Colrn 
Sampson, chief constable of 
West Yorkshire, and decide 
whether possible evidence 
that Mr Stalker, aged 47, may 
have committed minor 
breaches of force regulations 
should be taken father. 

Mr Sampson is undostood 
to have left the onus on the 
authority to decide what 
should be done. 

It could decide the matters 
are- too trivial — they are said 
to refer to the use of police 
cars — to warrant further ac- 
tion. Or it could opt for an 
investigation by a disciplinary 
tribunal. 

The tribunal would be 
formed under the aegis of the 
Lord Chancellor, Lord 
Haflsham of St Marylebone. 

The Manchester police 
authority, created after the 
abolition of the Greater Man- 
chester Metropolitan Council, 
consists of 15 magistrates and 
30 local councillors. 

Several leading councillors 
have expressed support for Mr 
Stalker and hope that no 


r. Crime Reporter 
further action should be taken. 


When Mr Stalker was sus- 
tded earlier this year, Mr 

upson, working . fa. the 

Manchester authority and the 
Police Complaints Authority, 
began investigations .which 
included, the use of police 
vehicles and situations which 
arose out of Mr Stalker's 
friendship with Mr Kevin 
Taylor, a Manchester 
businessman. 


Yesterday The Sunday 
Times reported that police 
had examined the activities of 
Mr Stanley Nin, a .leading 
Manchester member of the 
Conservative Party, and a 
Midlands charity. 


In .investigating Mr 
Stalker’s friendship with Mr 
Taylor. Mr Sampson, accord- 
ing to the newspaper, looked 
at the activities of Mr Nin, a 
former treasurer of the Man-

Association. 

Mr Nin was brought into 
Conservative circles by Mr 
Taylor. Staffordshire police 
had been - investigating Mr 
Nin’s involvement with the 
Vincent Foundation, a charity 
based in Stoke-on-Trent. 


According to the newspaper 
yesterday, Mr Nin said that he 
had never been introduced to 
Mr Stalker who said he could 
not ever remember meeting 
Mr Nin.

A new war at sea was

“All the French boats know

Solicitors attack plans 
to aid injury claimants 


By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 


Government proposals to 
help accident victims to pur- 
sue their claims in the courts 
have come under attack from 
a group of solicitors represent- 
ing 14 firms which specialize 
in -personal injury cases. 

The group, which is at 
present handling 99,000 per- 
sonal injury claims — about 
one-third of the estimated 
total made each year — says 
that present procedures are in 
need of reform. 

But it rejects a key proposal 
in the recent consultation 
paper on personal injuries 
from the Lord Chancellor's 
Department that a system of 
paper adjudication could be 
used for all rfanwrf up to 
£5,000 and all road accident 
cases.

settled On the basis of papers 
submitted from both skles to 
an adjudicator. 

The solicitors say it has not 
been thought through. : 

The group said that only 
small cases where damages are 
limited to £1,000, should be 
considered for paper adjudica- 
tion. 

“It is our view that in. 
personal injury claims, mat- 
ters relating to liability can 


, be dealt with by 
i evidence." 

The solicitors also say there 
would be heavy costs in 
putting together a case on 
paper and that the waiting 
time between completing a file 
and the final derision. is most 
unlikely to bea matter of days, 
as suggested by the Lord 
Chancellor's Department. 

The group, which is chaired 
by Mr Roger Goodier, of the 
London firm Rowley Ash- 
worth, also criticizes figures in 
the consultation paper as “to- 
tally unrepresentative and 
misleading". 

Although some High Court 
personal injury cases can take 
four to six years to conclude, 
the average time in the group's 
experience is nearly two years. 

“The consultation paper 
foils to take into account that 
it is vital m all cases to wait 
until a final medical prognosis 
has been given before settle- 
ment of the claim." 

The group does agree, how- 
ever, that there is a need for 
greater publicity to increase 
the knowledge of potential, 
claimants of their right to sue. 

They called for a-group to 
monitor and run a scheme 
which would promote and 
identify solicitors specializing 
in personal injuries work.

British birds use fiord 
in Norway to refuel 


Bird flocks consisting of 
30,000 knots, Cali dr is 
canons, have recently been 
discovered to use Balsfrord, in 
arctic Norway, a$ a staging 
post when returning to their 
breeding grounds after winter- 
iag in western Europe. At first 
it was thought that the knots 
at Baisfiord. which is about 30 
miles from Trotnsp; were part 
Iff the Siberian breeding 
population. 


By John Tirason 


However, detailed observa- 
tions by zoologists from Dur- 
ham University , have shown 
that the birds, which belong to 
the sandpiper family, are part 
of the NearctiC knot popula- 
tion which breeds in Green- 
land mid-arctic Canada.. 


Since 30 of the 38:ringed 
birds found at Bafefjoid came 
from Britain, it seems likely 
that many of the knots at the 
fiord started oat from the 
coast. Knots prepare for 
migration in April and eariy

Djibouti (AFP) — The East 
African slate of Djibouti has 
suspended all air and sea links 
with South Yemen after a 
Djibouti-bound airliner was 
intercepted by South Yemeni 
fighters and detained in Aden 
for nearly six hours, officials 
i said here yesterday. 

The suspension followed an 
incident on Saturday involv- 
ing an Air Djibouti Boeing 
727, which was flying from the 
North Yemeni capital of 
Sanaa to Djibouti and Addis 
Ababa. 

The aircraft had 59 pas- 
sengers on board, including 
Mr Hussein Kassem Ahmed, 
an official of the former South 
Yemeni Government ousted 
in January after two weeks of 
bitter fighting between two 
left-wing factions. 

Djibouti's Foreign Minister, 
Mr Moumin Bah don Farah, 
summoned the South Yemeni 
chaigfr d'affaires to present 
him with an official protest at 
what he said was an act of 
piracy, officials said. 

He also met members of the 
diplomatic corps here to in- 
form them of the incident. . 

The plane, escorted to Aden 
by two jets, was searched at 
the airport by armed South 
Yemeni security forces, who 
were apparently looking for 
supporters of the deposed 
President, Mr Ali Nasser 
Mohammed. 

All the passengers were 
forced to leave ine aircraft, 
including three diplomats 
from moderate North Yemen, 
which maintains close ties 
with Saudi Arabia and has 
been frequently at odds with 
its Marxist neighbour to the 
south.

A political storm was brew- 
ing here yesterday over the 
Canadian Government’s de- 
cision to admit 154 Sri Lan- 
kan Tamil refugees found 
adrift last Monday off 
Canada's east coast. 

The controversy intensified 
over the weekend after it was 
revealed that the Canadian 
Government was tipped off in 
advance that the reftigees were 
coming, but did nothing about 
it on the ground that the 
information was not precise 
enough. * 

Meanwhile, spokesmen for 
the Tamils in Montreal and 
Toronto, where the refugees 
have been settled, admitted 
for the first time that they lied 
in Idling the Canadian 
authorities originally that they 
came from India rather than 
West Germany. 

The West German authori- 
ties have alleged that the 
reftigees were brought to 
Canada's shores by a small 
Honduran-registered cargo 
ship, the Aurigae, which left 
the north Goman port of 
Brake on July 28. 

The Tamils were said to 
have been kept in the hold of 
the ship, and fed only with 
cooked rice during the voyage 
to Canada, for which they are 
reported to have paid a total of 
$400,000 (£267,000). Once off 
■the Canadian coast, they were 
cast adrift in two lifeboats. 

They were rescued from the 
lifeboats a week ago and taken 
to St John's, Newfoundland. 
They were granted special 
permits enabling them to re- 
main in Canada for at least 
one year and look for work, 
and were later flown to Mon- 
treal and Toronto. 

Herr Wolfgang Biudel, the 
captain of the Aurigae, has 
denied that he transported the 
Tamils to Canada.

Mr Benoit Bouchard, the 
Minister of Employment and 
Immigration, has continued 
to insist that he had no choice 
but to admit the castaways, 
even after it became dear that 
they lied in telling Canadian 
police and immigration 
authorities that they came 
directly from India, as refu- 
gees from the civil war in Sri 

lanta 

“I believe it was a just and 
human act by this country and 
my Government," Mr Bou- 
chard told reporters. “It was 
what we had to do." 

He noted that Canada has a 
policy of not deporting people 
to a country trembled by civil 
strife. 

Nevertheless, backbench 
MPs of Mr Bouchard's own 
Conservative Party reported a 
flood of complaints from their 
constituents over the fret that 
the Tamils were able to short- 
circuit Canada's immigration 
procedures and gain entry

The information was con- 
veyed to Ottawa by Mr Den- 
nis Baker, the Canadian 
Consul-General in Hamburg, 
who got it through an anony- 
mous telephone call appar- 
ently from a Tamil living in 
West Germany. 

Mr Bouchard admitted that 
the Government had indeed 
received such prior informa- 
tion but said it took no action 
because the West German 
Government was unable to 
corroborate it.

ator Bob Packwood (Repub 1 
lican. Oregon) and Repres- 
entative Dan Rostenkowski 
(Democrat,' Illinois), chair- 
men of their chambers’ respec- 
tive finance committees, just 
managed to agree on new 
figures before Congress* ad- 
journed at the weekend ferits 
summer holiday. 

Their package, approved by 
a voice vote late on Saturday, 
would almost halve tlte top 
individual tax rate to/28 per 
cent, with one other tax rate of 
15 percent. 

Popular deductions allowed 
foF individual pension plans 
and state and loqal taxes 
would be limited or repealed. 

But the average* taxpayer 
would still pay 6.1 percent less 
a year. And six million low- 
income Americans' would no 
longer pay any federal income 
tax as a result of increases in 
personal exemptidns. 

The extra money would 
come from business and in- 
dustry. The genera] rate, would 
be reduced, but the many 
special deductions and loop- 
holes would bo abolished. 

Big industries using these 
loopholes to* avoid paying 
almost any tax will be faced 
with huge new bills. 

Altogether businesses will 
have to pay $120 billion more

President Jayewardeoe held 
two rounds of talks here at the 
weekend with the moderate 
Tamil United Liberation 
Front (Tnlf) on the draft 
legislation for devohitioa of 
power. Government sources 
said a fte rw ar ds that the effort 
to find a solution to the 
island’s ethnic crisis was mak- 
ing headway. 

On Saturday it was reported 
that agreement had been 
reached on the position of 
provincial governors, which 
would be ceremonial rather 
than executive. 

Meanwhile, the Govern- 
ment-controlled Observer yes- 
terday said that some 
extremist Tamil groups were 


forming a new political party, 
the Tamil Eelam People's 
Party (Tepp), which would be 
to the left of Talf. 

The newspaper said the 
formation of a political party 
would legitimize extremist 
activity and prepare the 
ground for extremists to enter 
the mainstream of politics. 

The independent news- 
paper, The Island* reported 
Mr S. Tbondaman, the Min- 
ister of Rural Industries, as 
saying that the next step after 
the conclusion of talks with 
Tnlf would be a tripartite 

meeting in a neighbouring 
country between the Govern- 
ment, Tnlf and representatives 
of the Tamil extremists. 


The instructions hud been 
given by the ship's captain as 
they boarded the lifeboats. 

“We were under severe 
physical and mental stress. 
Our motivation was our 
desperation in our search for a 
permanent home.” 

He said that the reftigees 
boarded a ship in Germany ou 
July 27 and sailed the nexf 
morning. They were put into 
lifeboats on August 9 and 
provided with two barrels of 
water and gas. 

“We wandered and drifted 
on the ocean, losing hope of 
surviving. We are truly thank- 
ful for the fishermen who 
rescued us on August 1 1.” 

The spokesman said that 
most of the group of 30 who 
attended the Montreal press 
conference had flown to Eu- 
rope from Sri Lanka during 
the past few years, entering 
West Berlin after first travel- 
ling to East Germany. 



The Korean athlete, Kee Chung Soho, receiving the antique 
great pressure to push for tax helmet he should have been awarded for winning the 


breaks for the big employers in 
their home states. , 

The general public, which 
was only ever lukewarm about 
the reform, also grew increas- 
ingly suspicious of the 
changes, and saw them as 
benefits for the rich at the 
expense of the middle classes. 

With President Reagan 
lobbying energetically on the 
sidelines, however, both the 
House and the Senate even- 
tually managed to quash all 
the. objections and produced 
Bills that were sweeping is 
their simplicity and lack of 
special interest clauses. 

The full House and Senate 
still have to approve the 
compromise Bin in .a single 
“yes” or “no” vote next 
month. 

There may still be objec- 
tions, especially in the House, 
from those who think too 
many individual deductions 
have been limited, and from 
those in the Senate who say 
business will have to pay too I 
much. 

But if the Bill becomes law, 
economic activity in the 
United States is going to be i

Bhutto arrest brings wave of street violence 


Protest escalates in Sind 


From Michael Harolyn 
Karachi 

The faint but distinct scent 
of tear gas hangs over Lyari, 
the working-class suburb of 
Karachi, Pakistan's biggest 
city, which for five days has 
been the scene of hit-and-run 
dashes between gangs of 
youths and police. 

Yesterday angry mobs gath- 
ered in the narrow streets of 
the district and burnt lyres 
and erected barricades to stop 
the entry of police vehicles. 
They pelted the security men, 
but ran like rabbits if the 
forces, of law and order moved 
towards them. 

Elsewhere in the province of 
Sind the dashes have been put 
down with a great show of 
force by bringing in the Army. 
In at least three districts — 
Thatta, Badic and Dadu — the 
armed forces are patrolling die 
streets. One report said that at 
least five brigades had been 
deployed in the rural areas. 

In Hala, a walled dly, ruled 
feudally by the family of the 
holy man, the Pir of Hala, 
troops and citizens exchanged 
fire yesterday as devout 
followers of die Pir protested 
at the arrest of his secoud son, 
Makhdoom Khalique. 

The pious protesters also 
found time to bum offices, 
banks and other public 
corporations. 

The Makhdoom is presi- 
dent of the Sind arm of the 
Pakistan People's Party, 
whose national leader. Miss 
Benazir Bhutto, was arrested 
last week. Her detention and 
the seizure of almost all the 
first- and second-rank leader- 
ship of her party sparked the 
renewed outbreak of violence 
in the country's two biggest 
provinces, Sind and Punjab. 

The remaining leaders of 
her party and those of the 
alliance of opposition parties, 
the Movement for the Restor- 
ation of Democracy (MRD), 
which is backing her cam- 
paign. have given an ul- 
timatum to President Zia’s 
Government. Unless Miss 





Riot police patrolling the streets of Lahore to enforce a ban on political meetings. Passions 
are running high in the city since four rioters were killed after Miss B enazir Bhutto's arrest. 


Bhutto is released today, they 
plan to organize further huge 
demonstrations. 

According to the editor of a 
Karachi newspaper, the con- 
frontation will be veiy dif- 
ferent from what happened in 
September, 1983. The MRD 
conducted a campaign against 
General Zia's martial law 
regime, but it really only 
caught fire in Sind. Punjab's 
MRD leaders courted arrest in 
Lahore and Rawalpindi, but 
the province as a whole stayed 
calm. 

“That was because Punjab 
is very much averse to Indian 
involvement," said Mr Wajid 
Shamsul Hasan, editor of the 
overnment-owned Daily 
eirj. “Mrs Indira Gandhi 
came out with a statement 


% 


very strongly supporting the 
democratic movement The 
Government were able to 
portray it as a secessionist 
movement 

“This time; there is a 
countrywide following for 
Miss Bhutto, and there is a 
much greater loyalty to the 
Bhutto name than there ever 
could be for such leaders as 
were imprisoned then.” 

A big trial of strength is 
expected today, with demon- 
strations planned in Lahore 
and Karachi. In Lahore feel- 
ings have risen since the death 
of four rioters in the wake of 
Miss Bhutto's arrest 

In Karachi the Government 
is anxious to avoid creating 
more martyrs to add to the 
Lahore total. Last night a 


police inspector coping with 
the drifting mote of stone- 
throwers was in no doubt that 
he would be able to keep 
control of them if only the 
Government would not keep 
him under restraint 

“We are ordered not to use 
lathi-charges, not to use bul- 
lets. We must not do anything 
to hurt any of these poeple," 
he said. 

He complained as stones 
and pebbles skipped along the 
street towards us. “But these 
people are just being ex- 
ploited; they are ignorant 
They are the Negroes of 
Pakistan. They are not Ary- 
ans. They are doing these 
things because they are in the 
pay of Libya and Russia and 
India." 


Five-term Balaguer 


Santo Domingo (AFP) — 
The conservative politician, 
Senor Joaquin Balaguer. who 
is 78 and almost blind, was 
sworn in here on Saturday for 
his fifth term as president of 
the Dominican Republic, in 
the Caribbean. 

In a speech to both cham- 
bers of the legislature, he 
promised to lead his 
Government's fight against 
hunger, poverty and cor- 


ruption. Senor Balaguer, 
elected on May 16, succeeds 
Senor Salvador Jorge Blanco, 
the social democrat leader of 
the Dominican Revolutionary 
Party. 


The new head of state 
inherits a seriously eroded 
economy. In recent years the 
bottom has fallen out of the 
sugar market, the Dominican 
Republic's principal export. 


Paris airspace violated 


From Susan MacDonald, Paris 


An inquiry has been opened 
into the security of Paris 
airspace after a weekend in- 
cident In which a small plane 
flew- low over the Palais de 
Justice and die Prefecture de 
Police on the De de la Gtfe. 

The incident followed one 
last Sunday in which a small 
plane landed on a completely 
empty Champs Elysees, 


cleared of pedestrians for the 
shooting of a promotional fifan. 

It is forbidden to fly over 
Paris at less than 2,000 metres 
and these two incidents, pins 
the daring jaflbreak two 
months ago in which a heli- 
copter was used to whisk away 
a prisoner, hare raised fears 
that a terrorist act coald be 
carried ost by plane. 


Reagan 
hits out 
at cuts in 


defence 


From Michael Binyon 
Washington 

President Reagan accused 
the Democrat-controlled 
House of Representatives of 
waging a “reckless assault on 
the defence of the United 
States". 

In a sharply-worded re- 
action at the weekend to the 
House’s sweeping cutback on 
Friday of his defence budget, 
and its proposals on arms 
control, Mr Reagan said the 
measures, if enacted, would 
undermine US arms nego- 
tiators and eventually imperil 
national security. 

“Soviet arms negotiators 
must be mystified today that 
US legislators would give 
away in Washington what 
they must have been unable to 
win in Geneva," he said. 

“Soviet military planners 
must be astonished at the 
blows the House delivered this 
week to America's national 
defence." 

He was angry at the series of 
votes over the past week that 
have slashed many Pentagon 
programmes for 1987, es- 
pecially tbe Strategic Defence 
Initiative. They represent the 
most fundamental congres- 
sional challenge yet to his 
military build-up. 

Tbe House voted only $287 
billion (£189 billion) for de- 
fence next year. This is consid- 
erably less than the $320 the 
President requested, and it 
freezes spending at about this 
year’s level 

On the House floor amend- 
ments were added to reduce 
the budget for SDL to extend 
for a year the ban on space 
tests of anti-satellite weapons, 
to delay the production of new 
chemical weapons for a year, 
impose a one-year mora- 
torium on nuclear tests if the 
Russians do the same, and 
require continued adherence 
to the Salt 2 arms accord. 

Mr Reagan singled these 
and other measures out for 
vehement criticism in his 
weekly radio speech, taped 
before he left for a holiday in 
California. He promised that 
he would veto the Bill if it 
reached his desk “in anything 
like the present form". 

The Bin now has to be 
reconciled with the Senate 
version already passed. All but 
23 Republicans in the House 
voted against it. 

Mr Reagan seemed particu- 
larly vexed by the cut in funds 
for SDI from the $5.3 billion 
be sought to $3.1 billion. 


Voice of the people heard in 
parliamentary experiment 


From Our South Asia 
Correspondent 
Kathmandu 

The mountainous kingdom 
of Nepal, moving one slow 
step at a time along the road to 
foil democracy, his now em- 
barked on its second five-year 
experiment with a party less 
Parliament, and the King and 
his advisers still very much in 
control 

Last May's elections, held m 
the shadow of the magnificent 
frieze of the Himalayas, sur- 
prised observers by the extent 
of excitement shown and the 
genuine enthusiasm for vot- 
ing. 

These elections prove once 
ji gain that in the In dian sub- 
continent people will gladly 
turn out to exercise their 
franchise under , almost any 
circumstance that gives them 
a chance of making their voice 

heard. 

“The carnival atmosphere 
was the remarkable thing," 
declared one poll-watcher. “A 
district officer told me that Ire 
was worried by the effect of all 
these parties, bnt Ire didn’t 
mean political parties, he 
meant candidates buying dri- 
nks for their supporters.” 

Both observers and officials 
say that the Parliament the 
National Panchayat bears a 
fair reflection of the people’s 
intentions. “There was comp- 
aratively little rigging," a dip- 
lomat said,“and though it was 
said there were no official 
candidates, there were some, 
but their number was few." 

“People who conqrfained 
loudest that the election was 
unfair and rigged were them- 
selves elected," noted a senior 
Nepalese official And it is 
true that such figures as Mr 
Siirya Bahadur Tbapa, a for- 
mer Prime Minister, who was 
loudly alleging an official cam- 
paign against him, surprised 
himself by the aze of his 
majority.

Parliament with 3 landslide 
majority of 88,000 votes. For 
the first time in Parliament 
there is now a moreorJess 
identifiable group of such left- 
wingers. It is reckoned to be 
eight or nine strong, though 
one estimate says there are 13 
ofthem. 

For the first tune their 
voices have been raised within 
Parliament itself, criticizing 
and calling for an end to the 
partyless system. This can has 
led hard-line royalists to call 
for their expulsion from the 
House because they have bro- 
ken their pariiamentaiy oath 
to uphold the constitution. 

Other striking calls have 
been heard, too. Last week, 
Mr Rajeswor Devkota startled 
bis fellow members with a 
swingeing attack on the 
Government’s mismanage- 
ment of the economy. Jte was 
in the hands of a handful of 
smugglers and should be freed 
from their dutches, he as- 
serted in a speech which was 
given full play in the generally 
supine press. 



The Government is headed 
bv a Prime Minister, Mr 
Marich Man Singh Shresta, 
who appeared ana was voted 
on without opposition, even 
though the constitution pro- 
vides for a more open system 
of selection. The King's 
prerogative, it seems, still runs 
to picking his Prime Minister 
personally. 

Tbe man he has picked isa 
former Speaker, but is, un- 
usually, a low-caste school 
teacher from the Newar dan. 
He is also illegitimate and a 
former Communist 
. For the present session hb 
position seems to be secure, 
but party discipline is impos- 
sible in the absence of parties. 

By the next session, the 
post-election honeymoon win 
be fcver, there will be little 
chance of a further distribu- 
tion of ministries to keep 
possible dissidents in line, and 
commentators and senior of- 
ficials here forecast a tough

In Moscow yesterday. a

to savp her brother's lift, At 
the same time Israeli dip- 
lomats in Helsinki * were 
preparing for today's first 
formal meeting in 19 years 
with Soviet officials. 

Israeli hopes that the plight 
of Soviet Jewry might im- 
prove as a result of the 
meeting are high, even though 
Soviet sources have repeated 
that the only subjects ’for 

discussion will be Russian 
church property in Israel and 
consular services for Soviet 
citizens Jiving there. 

• The Israeli delegation, how- 
ever, is under Cabinet .orders 
to raise the subject of .Soviet 
Jewry from the very start of 
the meeting. The sad base of 
MrMikhaS Sherman ^iH be a 
perfect one for them- to ad- 
duce; to try to prove that the 
refusal to pant exit visas isa 
denial of human rights. 

Mr Sherman emigrated to 
Israel ‘ six years ago from

Outside the Prime Minister’s 
office. 

Mr Anatoly Shcharansky, 
who arrived to a hero's wet- 
c6me in Februaiy, had a 
private meeting last week with 
Mr Shimon Peres, the Prime 
Minister, who insists that 
there- must be ‘‘linkage** be- 
tween anything offered to the 
Russians and the heed to 
obtain exit visas. 

In an article in the Jem- 
salem Post this weekend, Mr 
Shcharansky spelt out the 
Israeli case which he believes 
must be put in H elsinki . . 

“We do not hold even one 
person who wishes to emigrate 
to the USSR as hostage in bur 
discussions with the 
Russians,**- he wrote. “We 
must therefore insist that any 
of foe three minion Jews In foe 
Soviet Union who wish to

do so. This is foe only

must be a condition of any

Mr Yitzhak Shamir, foe 
Foreign Minister; who is due 
to take over as Prime Minis ter 
in October, has been even 
firmer than Mr Peres in 
insisting that Soviet Jewry 
must head the agenda. 

For foeir part the R ussians. 
who asked for the meeting, 
have insisted that only the

How Stalin starved the Ukraine 



THE HARVEST 
OF SORROW 

by Robert Conquest 
Pt 1 : Assault on the peasantry 


Stalin's policies were 
responsible for the deaths of 
more than 14 million 
peasants in the Soviet Union 
between 1930 and 1937 — 
more than the total of the 
dead of all countries in the 
First World War, and more 
than twice as many 
victims as Hitler wonld 
exterminate in his 
genocidal war on the Jews a 
few years later. In the 
Ukraine alone, a quarter of 
the rural population died 
in a famine that had been 
carefully planned and 
executed. Unlike the Nazis, 
however, the Soviet Union 
managed to divert the 
world's attention from the 
enormity of its crime. In the 
first of three extracts from 


his new book, Robert Conquest — a leading authority on 
Soviet history — exposes the opening moves of Stalin's 
campaign of terror and death by famine. 


Just over 50 years ago the Ukraine 
and its neighbouring areas, the 
Don, the Volga and the Kuban — a 
great stretch of territory inhabited 
by about 40 million people — 
resembled a vast Belsen.A quarter 
of the rural population lay dead or 
dying, the rest in various stages of 
debilitation with no strength to 
bury their families or neighbours. 
As at Belsen. well-fed squads of 
police and government officials 
supervised the victims. 

This was the climax of the 
“revolution from above", as Sta- 
lin pul iL in which he and his 
associates crushed two elements 
seen as irremediably hostile to his 
regime: the Soviet peasantry as a 
whole and the Ukrainian nation in 
particular. 

Stalin's campaign had begun in 
1929. Although the Ukraine was 
under communist control, the 
population was unreconciled to 
the system. Historically, the 
Ukrainians are an ancient nation 
which has survived through ter- 
rible calamities. They have their 
own language, their own culture, 
and a cementing history of 
persecution. 

Bigger than France and more 
populous than Poland, the 
Ukraine was by far the largest 
nation in Europe not to emerge as 
a fully-fledged independent entity 
in the period between the two 
world wars. And in the aftermath 
of the Russian Revolution many 
representatives of the national 
culture, and even many Ukrainian 
Communists, accepted Moscow's 
rule only conditionally. 

Indeed, in March 1917. soon 
after the collapse of Tsardom, a 
Ukrainian Central Council had 
been formed, its bid for autonomy 
providing an opportunity for the 
first great example of the exten- 
sion of Soviet rule by force over an 
independent East European 
country. 

The region had been the worst 
affected in eastern Europe by the 
great famine of 1921-22 which 
followed the immense social and 
economic disruption in the wake 
of the revolution. On this occasion 
there was no conscious decision in 
Moscow that the peasant should 
starve, and though the drought 
that year was severe, it could not 
be classified as a disaster. 

The factor which turned the 
scale was the Soviet government’s 
method of crop requisition. It took 
so much of the peasant's product 


that he was not left with enough to 
subsist on, while over the previous 
three years the government's poli- 
cies in the countryside had effec- 
tively removed much of the 
incentive to produce. 

The existence of famine was 
admitted, and an appeal was made 
for foreign aid. In the autumn of 

1921. the future President 
Hoover's American Relief 
Administration started moving 
stocks into Russia which would 
eventually feed more than 10 
million. Even then there was a 
tendency to leave the Ukrainian 
peasantry unassisted, with the 
result that official Soviet figures 
admitted the deaths of 800.000 
Ukrainians in the first half of 

1922. an assessment reported as 
not covering some of the worst 
areas. 

The great famine had brought 
the government in Moscow to a 
realization that disaster faced if it 
continued to impose its oppres- 
sive agrarian policies; and to an 
acceptance, at least for the time 
being, of a truce which left the free 
peasantry in existence. 

By 1929. having outwitted and 
crushed the right wing of the 
Communist Party. Stalin was at 
last ready to give effect to his 
hostility against what he saw as 
centrifugal tendencies in the 
countryside. He began with a 
double blow; dekulakization and 
collectivization. 

Quotas were set far 
above the possible 
and all food removed 





“Brigades would make formal searches, and anyone not in a starring state was the object of suspicion'' 


Lenin envisioned the kulak — 
literally, “fist” — as a rich, 
exploiting class against whom, 
after the removal of the landlords 
proper, peasant hatred could be 
equally directed. A kulak was a 
village money-lender and mort- 
gager. of whom there was usually 
one in a village or group of 
villages. Any rich peasant might 
make an occasional loan, indeed, 
would be expected to. Only when 
money-lending became a major 
source of income and of 
manipulation was he seen as a 
kulak by the villagers. 

In practice then, dekulakization 
meant the killing or deportation to 
the Arctic of millions of peasants 


with their families — in principle 
the better-off, in practice the most 
influential and most resistant to 
the forty's plans. 

Collectivization, the second 
measure, meant the effective abo- 
lition of private property in land, 
and the concentration of the 
remaining peasantry in collective 
farms under Party control 

Stalin seems to have realized 
that only a mass terror throughout 
the body of the nation — that is. 
the peasantry — could really 
reduce the country to submission. 
In 1932-33. accompanied by an 
attack on all Ukrainian cultural 
and intellectual centres and lead- 
ers. as well as on the Ukrainian 
churches, came what may be 
described as a terror-famine. 

K was inflicted on the collec- 
tivized peasants by setting grain 
quotas far above the possible, 
while removing every handful of 
food and preventing help from 
outside — even from other areas of 
the Soviet Union — from reaching 
the starving. 

Nationalism was blamed explic- 


itly for the supposed contumacy of 
the Ukrainian peasants in not 
surrendering grain which they did 
not have, all of which was in 
accord with Stalin's dictum that 
the national problem was in 
essence a peasant problem. In fact, 
one of the aims of collectivization 
in the Ukraine had been staled 
officially as “the destruction of 
Ukrainian nationalism's social 
base — the individual land- 
holdings”. The Ukrainian peasant 
thus suffered in double guise, as a 
peasant and as a Ukrainian. 



In normal circumstances, the 
Ukraine and the North Caucuses 
provided half the Soviet Union's 
total marketable grain. In the good 
harvest of 1930, the Ukraine's 
share was 7.7 million ions <33 per 
cent). In 1931 the same 7.7 million 
tons was demanded of the 
Ukraine out of a harvest of only 
18.3 million tons: that is, 42 per 
cenL Only 7 million tons were 
actually collected. This meant that 
what amounted to a famine was 
affecting the Ukraine in the late 
spring of 1932. 

In July of that year, the vital 
derisions were taken which led to 
the holocaust of the next eight 
months. Stalin again ordered a 
delivery target of 7.7 million tons 
out of a total harvest which the 
collectivization and poor weather 
had reduced to 14.7 million tons, 
two-thirds of that of 1 930. 

It was obvious that the pro- 
posed levels of requisition were 
not merely excessive but impos- 
sible. After considerable argu- 
ment the Ukrainians managed to 
get the figure reduced to 6.6 


million ions, but this too was for 
beyond the feasible. . 

The position was bad in July 
1 932 but it was to grow worse. The 
first procurements were carried 
out in August and in many areas, 
by great effort, the targets were 
met. This virtually exhausted the 
countryside. From then on the 
inhabitants of the 20.000 villages 
of the Ukraine awaited an even 
more menacing future. 

On October 12. 1932 two senior 
Russian apparatchiks — A. 
Akulov, who had been deputy 
head of the OGPU (the political 
administration which was the 
forerunner of the NKVD). and 
M.M. Khatayevich. earlier prom- 
inent in Stalin's collectivization of 
the Volga — were sent from 
Moscow to strengthen the local 
Party. At the same time a second 
procurement was announced, 
though there was now almost 
nothing available. 

By November 1, the delivery 
plan had been fulfilled only to the 
level of 4! per cent and people 
were already dying. Far from 
relaxing its demands, Moscow 
launched into a crescendo of terror 
bv hunger. 

A decree passed the previous 
August had ordered that all collec- 
tive farm properly such as cattle 
and grain should henceforth be 
considered state property, “sacred 
and inviolable”. Those guilty of 
offences against it were to be 
considered enemies of the people, 
to be shot unless there were 
extenuating circumstances, when 
the penalty must be imprisonment 
for not less than 10 years, with 
confiscation of property. 

From August 1932 there was a 
great increase in the extent and 
severity of the law and its enforce- 
ment. From the Kharkov court 
alone. 1.S00 death sentences are 
reported in one month. In both 
town and village, officially en- 
couraged brutality flourished. 

One peasant was shot for pos- 
session of 25 pounds of wheat, 
gleaned in a field by his 10-year- 
old daughter. A woman was 
sentenced to 10 years for cutting 
1 00 ears of ripening com from her 
own plot a fortnight after her 
husband had died of starvation. In 
the village of Mala Lepetykha, 
peasants were shot for eating a 
buried horse. 

Some party activists, even ones 
with bad personal records, tried to 
get fair treatment for the peas- 
antry. One activist explained: “In 
some cases they would be merciful 
and leave some potatoes, peas. 

Peasants were shot 
for eating a buried 
horse in one village 


com for feeding the family, but the 
stricter ones would make a dean 
sweep. 

“They would take not only the 
food and livestock, but ‘all valu- 
ables and surpluses of dothing'. 
including ikons in their frames, 
samovars, painted carpets and 
even metal kitchen utensils that 
might be silver — and any money 
they found stashed away." 

In the larger villages, where such 
things could be better concealed, 
women would be procured for the 
party officials by their need for 
food. At the district level, there 
was even luxury. A dining-hall for 
party officials in Pehrybyshcha is 
described: “Day and night it was

at very low prices, white bread, 
meat, poultry, canned fruit and 
delicacies, wines and sweets were 
served to (he district 
bosses . . .Around these oases 
famine and death were raging." 

In many areas, brigades would 
now make complete formal 
searches every couple of weeks, 
and not to be in a starving state 
was to be the object of suspicion. 
The activists would then make an 
especially careful search, assuming 
that some food had been hidden. 

One activist, after searching the 
house of a peasant who had railed 
to swell up, finally found a small 
tag of flour mixed with ground 
bark and leaves, which he then 
poured into the village pond. 
There are a number of reports of 
brutal brigadiers who insisted on 
carrying the dying as well as the 
dead to the cemetery to avoid the 
extra trip, and of children and old 
people lying in the mass graves, 
still alive, for several days. 

But one activist recalls: “With 
the rest of my generation f 
believed firmly that the ends 
justified the means. Our great goal 
was the universal triumph of 
Communism, and for the sake of 
that goal everything was permis- 
sible — to lie, to steal, to destroy 
hundreds of thousands and even 
millions of people, all those who 
were hindering our work or could 
hinder it, everyone who stood in 
the way. 

“With the others I emptied out 
the old folks' storage chests, 
stopping my ears to the children's 
crying and the women's wails. For 
I was convinced that I was 
accomplishing the great and nec- 
essary transformation of the 
countryside . .

Ripples on the waters 


Salmon farms are 


Tom Kidd 


spoiling the amenity 


of Scotland’s lochs. 


according to one 


pressure group 


Ask anyone to describe their 
image of a Scottish loch and 
the words tranquil, remote, 
and beautiful will probably 
figure somewhere in the 
description. But in an increas- 
ing number of cases, you 
probably could not find less 
appropriate adjectives. The 
sea lochs and inland waters of 
the Highlands and islands 
now form the basis of 
Scotland's newest growth in- 
dustry — salmon farming. 

Its spectacular expansion 
has not met with universal 
approval and is now likely to 
be the subject of a court case. 
The Crown Estate Commis- 
sioners, the people who man- 
age the Queen's estates, foes a 
test case bought by the Scot- 
tish Scenic Trust 

The trust alleges that 
salmon fanners have been 
allowed to coionise and blight 
once- tranquil lochs, damaging 
the local tourist trade, denying 
access to other water-users 
and disrupting the privacy of 
local people. 

According to trust chairman 
Neil Jamieson: “If we foil in 
the courts in this country, then 
we may have recourse to the 
European Court of Human 
Rights in Strasbourg. 

“We maintain that in some 
cases licences have been 
granted by the commissioners 
in a completely autocratic and 
undemocratic way. without 
sufficient consultation, and 
that fundamental rights of 
amenity and access have been 
denied to other users of the 

water." 

The test case is an indica- 
tion of the problems faced in 



Ian Anderson on his fish 
trying to bring much-needed 
employment to rural areas. 
After local goverment and the 
tourist trade, salmon farming 
is the main provider of work 
in the Highlands. 

There are now around 100 
companies operating in 200 
fresh and salt water sites in 
Scotland. The industry pro- 
duces 7.000 lonnes a year, 
compared with 600 tonnes in 
1980. and achieves annual 
sales totalling £30m. 

Ian Anderson, lead singer 
with the rock group Jethro 
TuiL has four working sites on 
the Isle of Skye and one on the 
mainland. Anderson is in 
favour of controls on the 
number and nature of the 
farms, even to the point of 
denying expansion to his own 
business. 

Among the measures he has 
taken is the introduction of 
regular checks on the cleanli- 
ness of the water and the offer 
of permanent mooring sites to 
yachtsmen who use the lochs. 
Anderson believes the pen- 
dulum has now swung far 
enough in favour of controls. 

Jamieson says the wider 
consultation procedures being 
proposed do not go far enough 
and that the Scottish Office 


form: in favour of controls 
should take into account other 
industries, leisure interests 
and wildlife. 

“We think fish farming is a 
wholly appropriate industry 
for the rural areas of Scotland 
and the west coast Our argu- 
ment is not with the industry, 
but with the Crown Commis- 
sioners for the way they have 
granted licences, and with the 
Scottish Office for its failure to 
plan the growth of the 
industry.” 

The trust wants the 
Commissioners' power to 
grant licences for sea lochs to 
be dependent on local plan- 
ning authority approval and to 
come within the terms of a 
long-term plan for the 
industry. 

A spokeswoman for the 
Crown Estate Commissioners 
said: “The Commissioners are 
satisfied that they have acted 
in accordance with their statu- 
tory duties." A consultation 
procedure which will take into

news... 

Owners are worth their weight in gold, which 
. ■ may be why they're known as treasures. 
Maggie Drummond looks at the thriving trade 
■ in keeping someone else’s house spotless 


• The only .lime i .ever felt like 
.... throwing a saucepan at my husband 
was when he upset the daily. He had 
apparently said something very 
rude to the cat ion his way to work, 
which reduced the good woman to 
tears: When he arrived home some 
14 weary hours later, I was still 
faming. “Don't you ever talk to the 
cat like that again," I screamed at 
him hysterically. 

Anyone who has ever loved and 
lost a daily will appreciate this tale. 
To the working mother, a husband 
is an optional extra. A daily, on the 
other hand, is ihe staff — or should 
that be the distaff? — of life: She is 
known as a “treasure" because she 
is hard to find and everyone wants 
to steal her. That's why we do daft 
things like tidying up the house 
before she arrives in an effort to 
keep her. 

Quite why finding someone to 
clean your home should be such a 
problem when there are three 
million unemployed is something 
that puzzles many people, including 
the columnist Auberon Waugh, who 
suggested recently that the Govern- 
ment could do a bit of good by 
extending tax relief to private 
domestic service. Well three cheers 
— except that such a measure would 
increase demand but do very little 
to improve the supply. 

Waugh puts the shortage down to 
ideology, the notion “that no citizen 
should suffer the indignity of having 
to earn a living as a personal servant 
of anyone else". He harks back to a 
golden “Upstairs Downstairs" age 
when domestic workers had “a 
secure and enjoyable life — good 
food, comfort and good company". 
And therein. I feel, lies the problem. 

It’s not that people don’t want to 
work; it’s just that few employers 
outside the stalely home class can 
actually afford 'to offer anything ' 
which adds up to a proper Job any 
more, let alone the 'training and 
career structure of yore. 

Everyone complains that the 
traditional daily is in decline, yet 
dozens of agencies have been set up 
in recent yeais to bridge the gap. Sue 
Rorstad. who founded Poppies six 
years ago when, after the birth of her 
first child, she couldn't find a daily, 
now has 40 franchised outlets from 
Durham through the Home 
Counties. 

“There is a tremendous demand 
for domestic cleaning services and 
there are people who want to do the 
work," she says. “The real problem 
is that cleaners want to do more 
than three hours once or twice a 
week. They want to be property 
employed, with training and se- 
curity and regular pay like every- 
body else." 


Cleaning people's homes can be a 
very lonely business, sbe points out, 
particularly now that wives go out 
to work and the employer may 
never be seen. . In these days of 
heightened social sensitivities, 
cleaners want to fed they are doing 
a respectable professional job and 
belong to some kind of organiza- 
tion. They would apparently rather 
be registered with an agency and pay 
tax than stay in the black economy. 

Poppies employs and insures its 
cleaners. Customers pay £2.90 an 
hour, plus VAT, to ihe agency. The 
idea is that they get the same regular' 
cleaner with a relief to cover 
sickness and holidays, and accord- 
ing to Sue Rorstad there are 
advantages for both sides. "It means 
the cleaners aren't exploited. A lot 
of the trouble which people experi- 
ence with dailies arises because they 
underestimate how long it takes to 
dean a house. 

“ You may get a customer who is 
convinced it can all be done in three 
.hours, when what is needed is a 
spring-clean before the daily starts 
work so she doesn't spend her whole 
life fighting the rubbish to get to the 
sink. 

“Then you find people who are 
terrified to ask the cleaner to do this 
or that forfearshe will leave. People 
just don't like to ask. We can sort all 
that kind of thing out." 

There are apparently eight dif- 
ferent ways to clean a window, and 
even more theories on what con- 
stitutes a good daily. One friend of 
mine refused to hire, any home- 
grown cleaners, but swears by the 
Spanish and Portuguese, who don't 

‘There is a social stigma 
attached to 

doing a cleaning job’ . 

speak the language too well but just 
get ob with fire job. Another needs 
someone who can answer the 
telephone and take messages as well 
.as wield a. vacuum cleaner. 

“I try to match the cleaner to the 
householder," says Clare Pembery, 
who runs Clare's Cleaners in the 
Richmond and Twickenham areas 
of Surrey. "The job of the agency is 
to serve as a buffer between the 
daily and die customer. Both sides 
find this a difficult relationship 
these days." 

Unlike Poppies, which employs 
the workers itself agencies like 
Clare's Cleaners operate a finder's 
service and the householder pays 
the daily direct This means the 
customer is also responsible for the 
insurance. The daily can sue if she 
trips and breaks a leg on your frayed

my sainted aunt 


Maids in waiting; sweeping all before them (from left) Kim Kennard, Stephanie Eaton ami Jean Willis 


carpet. So if you are the employer 
and pay direct, you should still 
check your bouse contents policy to 
see you are properly covered. 

According to Pembery, rates are 
up to £3 an hour in the Richmond 
area. There is no VAT payable on 
direct payments to cleaners, but the 
agency's finder’s fee is about an- 
other SOp an hour on top of that for 
a year, payable up front, with 
replacement cleaners guaranteed 
should things go wrong. 

This appears to be cheaper than 
other agencies: Universal Aunts, for 
instance, also operates a finder’s 
service and would probably charge 
the customer £25 a quarter, plus 
VAT, for supplying somebody to do 
six hours of cleaning a week. 
Customers are always expected to 
pay the travel costs for the daily. 

Being clean does not come cheap, 
but why should it? Most cleaners are 
young mothers with children who 
want jobs to fit in with school hours. 
But some students join the agencies 
in college vacations. And amazingly 
there are people who actually enjoy 
cleaning. Katie Dent in her second 
year of Pembroke College, Oxford, 
works for Clare's Cleaners in her 
holidays. 

“A lot of my friends prefer 
temping in an office for less'money 
because they think there is a social 
stigma attached to doing a cleaning 
job," she says. "I actually find 
cleaning quite therapeutic. Orig- 


inally I was worried about h being 
women's work, but at least now- 
adays it's recognized as a proper job 
with a wage attached to it. 

“There’s no doubt, however, that 
lots of people are embarrassed 
about employing cleaners. It's not 
exactly the age of the servant, is it? I 
get the feeling that a lot of people 

‘A lot of people don’t 
want that kind of 
"personal service today’ 

prefer a traditional-type daily so 
everyone knows where they are on 
the social scale." 

There appear to be as many 
methods of cleaning as there are 
agencies. There’s a definite trend 
towards a more impersonal sys- 
tematic approach, with teams of 
cleaners rather than just one 
friendly soul For instance. Dial A 
Char, which operates in Kent and 
Sussex, comes in teams of two at 
£3.25 plus VAT an hour for each, 
plus travel costs of 1 5p a mile. If you 
want six hours of cleaning, say, 
you'll get two cleaners for three 
hours, which somehow doesn't 
sound nearly as comforting as 
having one for three hours twice. 

Maids, another franchise which 
operates in and around the Thames 
Valley, comes in teams of threes, in 


tracksuit uniforms and brightly- 
coloured vans with their own 
products. It's all designed to spruce 
up the image of the domestic 
cleaner as a professional, according 
to Maids' manager Terry Eccleston. 
“A regular clean could cost anything 
from £20 to £26 a time, depending 
on the size of the house." he says. 

" We don't aim to be like a daily. 
A lot of people don't want that kind 
of personal service any more. They 
don't want to get familiar with 
someone who comes to dean their 
home and probably wants to chat. 
What customers get from us. I 
suppose, is a mini spring-dean, a 
thorough job. which is not what you 
usually get from an ordinary 
charwoman. 

"There are lots of things that daily 
cleaners never seem to get round to 
doing, aren’t there? Well so as not 
to offend her, people often have us 
in to give them a really good clean 
when their regular cleaner goes 
away on holiday."

1 am luckier in the matter of 
aunts than P. G. Wodehouse, 
whose real-life aunts were as 
terrifying as the fictional ones 
he described as "aunt calling 
10 aunt like mastodons across 
a primeval swamp". 

Unlike Wodehouse. who 
had 20 aunts, I have only one 
who. again unlike his. never 
tries to make me pull myself 
together but abets me in going 
adrift, most recently by taking 
me to Paris on the* Orient 
Express. 

If my aunt has a fault it is 
that she regards my under- 
stated way of dressing as a bit 
casuaL so before we left she 
wrote to me; “Wc are advised 
■you can never be overdressed 
on the Orient Express' — so 
there”. 

I didn't much care for the 
tone of that “so there", so I 
arrived at Victoria in a silk 
tunic dress and high heels. 
These began io look a bit 
undepressed the minute my 
aunt stepped through the bar- 
rier wearing gilt earrings 
shaped like palm (caves and 
approximately the same size. 
Her pcarlized lilac eyeshadow 
also ensured that she stood out 
in the crowd of Orient Express 
passengers, who were mainly 
Japanese honeymoon? rs tak- 
ing photographs of each other 
beside the train's Pullman 
carriages. 

A Wodehouse aunt would 
not have considered ordering 
a whisky in the middle of the 
morning but mine would, and 
did. Seated majestically in 
lone ("First class kitchen car, 
20 seats, built 1928 by Metro- 
politan Cammelf Carriage and 
Wagon Co Ltd for the Queen 
of Scots Pullman", according 
to the guidebook), we both 
became quite toffee-nosed, 
insisting that “We can't stop 
at Bricklcy. it's a non-place”. 

The Orient Express is a joy 
for the early riser, which is 
what every female member of 
my family is. because when 
you wake up at 5am you are 
more than ready for lunch at 
11.30. which is when the 



PENNY 

PERRICK 


D 


Orient Express serves il.The 
opportunity “to recreate the 
style and glamour of a h\gone 
age" was rather lost oh the 
Channel crossing since the sea 
behaved like something in a 
Nicholas Monsarrat novel and 
most of the passengers dipped 
their faces into a sick -bag at 
Folkestone and didn't pull 
them out again until Bou- 
logne. My aunt, a sensible 
woman, looked out of a 
porthole, groaned and lav 
down full-length on a sofa, 
presenting a pair of gloaming 
mauve eyelids to the world. 

Since I was once married to 
a Cornish mariner, the heav- 
ing of the fern and the other 
passengers' shoulders held no 
terror for me and I showed off 
no end by tripping daintily 
around Ihe lounge in my high 
heels even when the dock 
became vertical. Had 1 only- 
known that all those miserable 
boat trips off the Cornish 
coast with people shouting 
"lee-ho" and booms hitung 
me on the head would prove 
to be good preparation for 
going to Paris, I wouldn't have 
made so much fuss at the 
lime. 

How nice, though, that 
those days of roughing it have 
ended, overtaken by Travels 
With My Aunt. 


Setting store by departments 


Once upon a time. London was 
a city with a department store 
on nearly every comer. Bourne 
& Hollingsworth. Derry & 
Toms, Whiteley's, Woo Hands, 
Marshall & Snelgrove and 
Swan & Edgar, all among the 
dear . departed, could supply 
you with most things from 
aprons to umbrellas. 

Then came the boutiques, 
which made shopping a lot 
more decisive since they of- 
fered you the choice of scarcely 
more than a dozen garments. 

After that there was a rise in' 
what's known, inelegantly, as 
“lifestyle retailers" like Habi- 
tat and Laura Ashley. AH you 
had to do was decide which 
lifestyle appealed to you and in 
one single Saturday morning 
yon could go (Hit and boy 
sheets, curtains, tablemats 
and kiteben tiles all in the 
same pretty pattern. 

I don't know what happened 
to people who suddenly re- 
alized that they had chosen the 
wrong lifestyle. Maybe they 
sold their honse with all the 
contents down to the last 
printed cotton photograph 


frame or maybe they just shot 
themselves. All I know is that 
the departure of the old-style 
department stores meant that 
yon could walk for miles 
before you could buy a spool of 
sewing thread or some fuse 
wire. 

But now look wbat's hap- 
pening. Smart little shops that 
once used to offer a couple of 
overpriced jumpers and a bi- 
kini are now going in for 
cosmetics and home 
furnishings. 

It sorely can't be long now 
before some retailing wizard 
dreams up the idea of one big 
building with a lift with a 
uniformed man in it who 
intones, “Third floor, 
lampshade trimmings, padded 
coat-hangers and shoe pol- 
ishes. Going np. Fifth floor, 
gentlemen's outerwear, curtain 
tracks." 

Once again shopping will 
become the confusing business 
it always used to be, bnt 
tailoring chalk and dusters 
and cntlery containers will 
once again be within walking 
distance. 


Illusion collusion 



Tonight the elders of the 
Magic Circle will debate what 
to them is an absurd notion: 
that women should be treated 
as eqnals and not just objects 
to be sawn in half. 

Anyone gazing into their 
crystal ball will be able to 
predict the result of the de- 
bate. Women win not be 
allowed to join the Circle, not 
now, probably not ever. 

Stacey Lee, a 19-year old 
magician, says this is discrimi- 
natory' and damaging to her 
professional status. Sbe wants 
to join the Magic Circle, 
renowned as the world author- 
ity on magic and illusion, to

has a simple if jocular defence 
when accused of sexual 
discrimination. In the words of

members: "Women can't keep 
a secret." 

Formed at the beginning iff 
the century as a private 
members* dub, the Magic 
Circle is housed in a converted 
garage off Tottenham Court 
Road In London's West End. 
The ethos of secrecy pervades 
the building, wbicb houses a 
line library, a museum, and a 
small theatre where every 
Monday night performances 
and lectures in the art of magic 
are delivered. The telephone 
number is ex-directory, and 
members are disdplined for 
breaking the secrecy rule. 

Magician Colin Francome, 
one of the Circle members, has 
proposed tonight's debate. 
"It's grossly unfair not to let 
women in," he said. "Magic is 
not simply buying a few tricks 
from a shop and trying them 
out — yon need advice. If the 
Magic Cirde does not allow 
women as members, it will 
destroy its credibility.*' The 
feelings of the old guard are 
summed up by Circle official 
Harry Devano (immortalised 
by his eponymous rising card 
trick) who says, "If women 
want a magic dub they can 
found one. But why intrude 
into ours?" 

The Circle has managed to 
see off an investigation by the 
Equal Opportunities Commis- 
sion but was forced to concede 
a point by allowing girls into 
their annual competition for 
young magicians. Stacey Lee 
reached the finals a couple of 
years ago, "but no way were 
they going to let me win" 
Another magician. Faye 
Presto, holds out little hope for 
a change. "How can they 
discriminate against 50 per 
cent of the population? If 
they're going to be the govern- 
ing body of magic, they’ve jolly 
well got to open their doors. 
But because the old fogies hold 
sway and will continue to hold 
sway for the next 10 years, it's 
extremely unlikely."

Peering through the health 
warnings smokescreen 


The latest messages 


on cigarette packets 


bluntly predict an 


early death, but 


health groups seek a 


still stronger line 


The warnings arc bigger, 
bolder and blunter than be- 
fore. Fifteen years after the 
first comparatively mild 
message on cigarette packets, 
today’s smokers arc left in 
little doubt of the hazards of 
their habiL 

From the initial govern- 
ment warning that 'smoking 
can damage your health’ in 
1971, when cigarettes cost 5s 
3d (26ftp) for 20. the latest 
advice has progressed to grim 
forecasts of early death and 
even of premature birth for 
smokers’ babies. 

The warnings now appear- 
ing would have seemed too 
alarming a few years ago. 
Among the slogans that will 
soon become familiar are: 

'More than 30,000 people 
die each year in the UK from 
lung cancer' 

'Smoking when pregnant 
can injure your baby and 
cause premature birth' 

• ‘Smoking can cause lung 
cancer, bronchitis, and other 
chest diseases' 

‘Smoking can cause fatal 
diseases' 

‘Stopping smoking reduces 
the risk of serious diseases* 
The warnings have been 
issued by voluntary agree- 
ment between the tobacco 
industry and the Govern- 
ment For added weight they 
are attributed on packets and 
advertisements to chief medi- 
cal officers of the health 
departments. They also take 
up more space in advertise- 


ments, 1 7ft per cent com- 
pared with 15 percent 
They have been welcomed 
by organisations such as the 
Health Education Council 
and ASH (Action on Smok- 
ing and Health). But will they 
be effective deterrents? 

Both groups share the main 
complaint “They don't go far 
enough. The message we 
want is simply that smoking 
kills," says Patti White, dep- 
uty director of ASH. 

Research by- the HEC 
showed that smokers felt that 


PangSoM 



only the ultimate warning 
would make them quit ciga- 
rettes. “Previous warnings 
have been ineffective. Telling 
people that smoking can be 
dangerous isn't enough." Mi- 
chael Jacob of the HEC says. 

“It needs to be short and 
blunL The latest wordings are 
too lengthy. Why not say that 
smoking kills? After all we 
have plenty of proof that it 
does." 

Such a blunt warning is 
already issued to smokers in 
the Irish Republic, where the 
government has adopted a 
more aggressive attitude re- 
cently. Bui the British health 
lobby's demands were re- 


sisted by the industry when 
the latest agreement with the 
Department of Health was 
reached. “We weren’t pre- 
pared to accept a. 'smoking 
kills’ label These are draco- 
nian messages and we are 
under no obligation to accept 
them,” says Clive Turner of 
the Tobacco Advisory Coun- 
cil which represents the 
industry. 

Other countries have a 
variety of cigarette health 
statements. In the United 
States, they range from stem 
cautions by the Surgeon Gen- 
eral that “Cigarette smoke 
contains carbon monoxide"; 
“Smoking by pregnant 
women may result in fetal 
injury, premature birth and 
low birth weight": Smoking 
causes lung cancer, heart 
disease, emphysema and may 
complicate pregnancy" to the 
more positive and encourag- 
ing advice:“Quitting smoking 
now greatly reduces serious 
risks to your health." 

Germany limits itself to the 
federal health minister's 
comment: “Smoking en- 
dangers your health." France 
is similarly low-key. Iceland 
more progressive, has a bat- 
tery of 16 messages about 
different health risks. 

Britain was one of the first 
countries to introduce health 
warnings on packets, with the 
United States following. “We 
led the way then, but we have 
lost our way in recent years." 
White says. 

Turner says: “Nobody 
really knows whether trying 
to frighten people to stop 
them doing something is 
actually effective. Cigarette 
consumption has declined in 
the last 1 5 years, but probably 
more because of the annual 
hefty tax increases than the 
health warnings."

One idea is to have Tam Dalyeli's 
Beigrano question as a running gag' 

Stirring stuff 

Rough Justice, the axed BBC show 
that investigated wrongful convic- 
tions. claims it has sprung another 
prisoner. George Beattie, jailed in 
Edinburgh for murder 13 years 
ago. has been released on parole. 
Journalist Peter Hill, who — with 
Martin Young — was suspended 
by the BBC earlier this year for 
their methods in another case, 
says the release vindicates their 
work in the past. Beattie's mother. 
Jean, agrees: “If it hadn't been for 
them stirring it up George would 
have been in prison for another 
two years.” While pointing out 
that many lifers serve less than 13 
years, the Scottish Office refuses 
to comment on his release. The 
Rough Justice duo have now been 
redeployed. Hill on a docu-

BARRY FANTONl 


The international crusade for 
sanctions against South Africa 
owes much of its appeal to the 
illusion that there is no alter- 
native. Because of this, otherwise 
sensible people are persuaded to 
support a policy which they 
suspect to be at worst bankrupt, at 
best a product of the politics of 
fatigue, frustration and failure. 

South African liberals have 
reacted to sanctions with dismay, 
because they see white South 
Africa's resistance to change hard- 
ening under external threat There 
is little talk of reform in Pretoria 
these days, reform having ceased 
to be politically attractive now 
that it can be portrayed by the far 
right as a concession to inter- 
national demands. 

And yet for those who recoil 
from the prospect of reducing the 
only successful industrial econ- 
omy in Africa to yet another Third 
World basket case, but would 
hasten the processes of internal 
change, there is a viable alter- 
native, a Marshall Plan for South 
Africa. In reality it represents a 
variation of the Reagan policy of 
“constructive engagement” — 
with one important difference. 

Constructive engagement 
sought to engage the South African 
government A Marshall Plan 
would seek constructive engage- 
ment with the South African 
people themselves — black and 
white. It would accept that the 
only successful pressures for 
change are those generated within 
South Africa which have the 
support of the majority of whites 
and it would seek to increase those 
pressures by offering them (if not 
the government) an alternative to 
isolation and blacks an alternative 
to deprivation. 


Sir Alfred Ayer will have surprised 
many with his recent suggestion 
that ’ the closure of university 
philosophy departments might 
have repercussions for the future 
of information technology in Brit- 
ain. After all, the popular percep- 
tion of philosophers and computer 
scientists is of people at opposite 
ends of the academic spectrum, 
the very embodiments of 
C.P. Snow's “two cultures”. Yet 
the truth is that in the field of 
information science those two 
irTeconcilables — the quest for ab- 
stract truth and the pursuit of 
practical utilitarian goals — have 
become interdependent. 

The point is that although a 
computer is, at one level, an 
ingenious electronic machine it is 
also no more than a tabula rasa 
upon which die programmer may 
realize any and all possible ma- 
chines —"machine”, in this sense, 
being equivalent to “logical 
system". And foe exploration of 
formal logical systems is, of 
course, one of foe central concerns - 
of 20fo century philosophy. 

But this does not simply mean, 
that philosophers have been given 
a new toy. On foe contrary, it has 
turned out that foe work of the 
logicians and pure mathematic- 
ians is crucial to the development 
of foe computer's potential. 

In foe 1950s, for example, the 
American philosopher Noam 
Chomsky revolutionized foe study 
of linguistics when he suggested 
that all grammars shared a com- 
mon “dap structure" which could 
be described in terms of formal 
logic. It might be thought that 
Chomsky's ideas would be of little 
interest outside foe ratified disci- 
pline of linguistic theory, in fact, 
they provided the basis for foe 
construction of most of today's 
“high-level" languages, without 
which computer programming 
would be arduous to foe point of 
impractical ity. 

In foe past few years foe 
connection between programming 
languages and logic has become 
even more direcL It is foe key to 
one of foe most promising 
developments in computer applic- 
ations, foe use of programs known 
as "expert systems”. The idea of 
an .expert system is that it can 
incorporate not just foe facts 
which a human expert has at his or 
her fingertips, but also the rules 
which guide foe expert’s thinking 
when addressing a problem.. 
Enthusiasts foresee a day when 
every doctor, lawyer or engineer 
will have access to an expert 
system which will serve as a sort of 
computerized consultant in his 
particular field. 

One of the most effective ways 
of "capturing" structures of 
knowledge in which facts are 
related to one another by complex 
rules, which even the human

and whites — and suggests an alternative 


It is a Marxist shibboleth that 
capitalism is the handmaiden of 
apartheid and that economic 
growth and investment . merely 
prop up foe apartheid society. 
South Africa’s recent history 
shows foe reverse to be true. 

Apartheid first began to crum- 
ble under the pressures of a high 
economic growth rate when the 
demand for a skilled and stable 
workforce led to foe recognition of 
urban blacks as a permanent 
community rather than “tem- 
porary sojourners". This led in 
turn to foe granting of freehold 
rights in so-called “white South 
Africa" and eventually to foe 
abolition this year of foe pass laws. 
But black aspirations, fanned by 
reform and frustrated by its 
limitations, inevitably began to 
concentrate on the ultimate goal — 
full political rights. 

It is an ‘ uncomfortable irony 
that. because of a prolonged ana 
deepening recession, aggravated 
by the withdrawal of foreign 
investment. South Africa’s eco- 
nomic growth has now dwindled 
to less than 2 per cent a year, while 
its population is growing at be- 
tween 2 and 3 per cent. Instead of 
being starved of foreign capital 
South Africa needs an infinite 
source of funds if apartheid, once 
banished from foe statute books, 
is not to survive as gross economic 
inequity. 

It has been conservatively es- 
timated that South Africa needs to 


create a million black jobs a year if 
it is to begin to mop up foe 
growing pool of unemployed. Last 
year, as foreign capital dried up. 
500,000 blacks lost their jobs. If 
foe proposed boycott of iron, steel 
and coal exports is effective they 
could be joined by some 40,000 
more. 

International investors are un- 
likely to reverse their decision to 
stop putting money in South 
Africa or Western governments so 
to defy the cuxiem mood thatthey 
release loan funds to Pretoria. 

Instead, the answer is for the 
US, Britain and the other EEC 
nations to join in an offer of 
massive aid to enable black South 
Africa to create its own infrastruc- 
ture, and thus make it less 
dependent on government funds 
and controL This would create an 
alternative society far better 
equipped and motivated to claim 
its political future than an apa- 
thetic society of foe unemployed, 
obsessed with material survivaL 

One agency for well-targeted 
foreign aid is already in place. The 
Urban Foundation, funded by 
South Africa's private sector, but 
under multi-racial control and 
dedicated to the creation of viable 
black communities, has proved its 
worth as a major instrument for 
social and political change. Simi- 
lar local agencies could be formed 
to create an alternative private 
education system for blacks, for 
agricultural assistance and train-

called predicate calculus. This has 
led to the development of so- 
called “logic programming” and 
to foe invention of a new program- 
ming language, Prolog, in which’ 
every statement represents a for- 
mula which foe computer can 
manipulate according to the rales 
of predicate calculus. 

The interrelationship between 
the abstract world of logic and the 
practical world of electronic en- 
gineering is neatly illustrated by 
another recent development The 
basic idea of any high-level lan- 
guage is that it provides a sort of 
shorthand in which the pro- 
grammer can concisely express 
instructions, leaving foe computer 
to translate them into a step-by- 
step program. The more complex 
foe instructions that can be ex- 
pressed, foe more powerful foe 
language will be. 

In 1936 foe American logician 
Alonzo Church showed that all 
arithmetical formulae could be 
expressed in a common form 
called the lambda calculus, and 
that all forms of compulation 
could be carried out by converting

Chomsky: applying logic

into another according to a given 
set of rules. Obviously, a program- 
ming language that made it pos- 
sible to implement this on a 
computer would be extremely 
powerful, and a number of such 
languages have in fret been pro- 
duced, including one called Hope. 

It seems likely, however, that 
the full advantages of the elegance 
and economy of languages such as 
Hope will be realized only if they 
are run on "parallel computers”, 
machines which contain many 
processors rather than the single 
central processing unit of the 
“classical" computer, and which 
can, therefore, carry out many 
logical operations simultaneously. 
A team at Imperial College, 
London, has built a parallel 
computer called Alice, designed 
for use with Hope. But the most 
intriguing thing is that Alice was 
also, m some sense, designed by 
Hope: the original specification 
was written in that tangnay. and 
fed into an orthodox computer 
which then generated foe logical 
design for the new machine. 

In another area, that of 
articificaJ intelligence (AI), the 
distinction between philosophy 
and computer science is blurring 


ing, for a network for hospitals 
and clinics, for social and commu- 
nity services and for agencies to 
help black entrepreneurs. 

It is- probable that a programme 
like this would bump heads with 
foe South African government, 
especially if it created pressure for 
the proclamation of more town- 
ships in metropolitan South Africa 
and foe repeal of foe Group Areas 
Act. which keeps blacks penned in 
racial ghettos. 

The plan could serve another 
political purpose. There is a 
substantial element within the 
National Party which is deeply 
disenchanted with the govern- 
ment's inability to grasp foe nettle 
of further, fundamental political 
reform. Earlier this year powerful 
voices within foe Afrikaner 
community urged a split in the 
party and the creation of a multi- 
racial transitional government of 1

affection does not flourish tinder

applied President Botha could 
succeed in reuniting foe majority 
of whites and leading them perma-

If. however, instead of threaten- 
ing isolation, the world were to 
offer a viable alternative, and if 
Botha were to reject it in favour of 
isolation, the tide could swing 
decisively against him. A Marshall 
Plan could thus finally destroy the 
artificial unity of the National 
Party and create foe conditions for 
real negotiation between South 
Africa's polarized communities.

even more. As AI struggles to 
widen the computer’s repertoire, 
to find ways in which it may 
advance from the status of a mere 
mechanical drudge and begin to 
see, speak and reason like a 
human being, foe endeavour is 
turning into a strange blend of 
philosophical inquiry and tech- 
nological research project. 

The point is that if we want a 
computer to “see” — that is, to 
recognize foe content of a visual 
image, to understand everday 
lan guag e, or, perhaps most im- 
portant of ail, to acquire the sort of 
everyday knowledge which we call 
common sense — we must first 
determine what it is, exactly, that 
we do when we recognize a 
familiar free, engage in conversa- 
tion or learn how to cope with the 
world around us. 

We could of course turn to the 
neurologists for an explanation of 
what was going on in our brains 
when they performed such feats 
but they could, as yet, provide us 
with tittle helpful information. 
There are, it should be added, 
some signs that we may in the 
future be a We to build machines 
which work like a brain in this 
very literal sense. But in the 
meantime, if we want to make the 
best of the machine which we 
already have — foe computer -we 
will have to “ think about 
thinking” at a very different level 

We will have to find ways to 
make concepts like “recognition”, 
“understanding” and “learning” 
rigorous a nd unambiguous, and 
devise logical symbolisms that can 
be used to represent our existing 
knowledge and ideas. This, again, 
is the business of philosophers; 

Already, espeaally in the 
United States, collaboration and, 
often, controversy between en- 
gineers and philosophers con- 
cerned with AI is generating some 
of foe liveliest and most exciting 
interdisciplinary debate seen since 
the Darwinians confronted foe 
theologians 125 years ago. Leading 
members of the “artificial intel- 
ligentsia” such as John McCarthy. 
Marvin Minsky and- Seymour 
Paper! have not been afraid to 
address the philosophical issues 
head-on. Philosophers such as 
Daniel Dennett. Hubert Dreyfus, 
Douglas Hofstadter and- John * 
Searle have enthusiastically 
plunged into the fray. 

So. before foe government starts 
to axe away the roots of British 
philosophy — if that is indeed its 
intention — those responsible 
should reflect on the origins of the 
computer. Although we may now 
see it as a prodigious child of 
technology, it was first conceived 
as a twinkle in the roving eye of 
philosophy; and the philosophers 
may yet have as large a part as the 
technologists to play in bringing it 
to full maturity. 


Could the expat vote save Thatcher? 


Joan Collins may not portray the 
acceptable face of capitalism, but 
she could be a definite electoral 
asset The Conservative party 
hopes that she. along with other 
Britons in Hollywood - Michael 
Caine and Scan Connery among 
them — will give a glamorous 
boost to the Tories* flagging effort 
to register expatriates as voters. 

First came a mailshot delivered 
to 100.000 expats — not a 
conspicuous success, as was re- 
flected by the figure, reported in 
The Times last week, of only 420 
responses. Then came the per- 
sonal touch: a visit to Los Angeles 
by Jim Spicer, the party's vice- 
chairman. ended an extensive tour 
of whai is now a global constit- 
uency for the British political 
panics. 

Last year Parliament conferred 
the vote on at least 500.000 of the 
three million British citizens who 
live or work overseas. These are 
people who ha*e been abroad for 
less lhan five years and who 
intend returning’ to the UK. By 
making a declaration to a British 
consul they can be registered to 
vote by post or proxy in the 
constituency in which they pre- 
\iously Iricd. 

The move attracted less notice 
lhan other changes in the I9g5 
Representation of the People Act 
But unlike votes for holiday- 
makers — which onlv really count 


in a midsummer poll — foe 
expatriate vote has impact when- 
ever an election comes. If. as 
generally, predicted, the next gen- 
eral election is a neck-and-neck 
contest the expatriate factor could 
be crucial. Half a million votes is. 
more than 1 per cent of the 
electorate, or about 800 per 
constituency. That is more than 
enough to decide what govern- 
ment we shall have. In the 1964 
election 84 votes in force constit- 
uencies would have changed the 
result. 

Electoral reform is almost al- 
ways carried out by foe party 
which stands to gain most from it 
(such as Labour's abolition of the 
business vote in 1948). It is no 
surprise that foe Conservatives are 
out to exploit the new expatriate 
vote, through the mailshot 
Spiccr-s mission and foe forma- 
tion of a new membership 
organization. . Conservatives 
Abroad. For subscriptions ranging 
from £15 to £45, far-flung Tories 
will receive invitations to meet 
visiting ministers and MPs. 

Spicer's tour did not include 
South Africa. But critics of the 
Tory campaign are preparing to 
make political capital out of the 
possibility that the next Conser- 
vative government could be 
elected on the strength of “while 
South African votes” 


The Labour Party, which re- 
sisted foe change, admits that the 
Conservatives will benefit most 
and - that it cannot match their 
effort. A-comparison can be made 
with foe introduction (by Labour) 
of postal voting, which in the 
1950s was estimated to be worth 
10 or 1 2 seats to the Tories. 

It is too late to wake up to what 
has happened in constitutional 
terms. For a start purists com- 
plain that expatriate votes are 
incompatible with a House of 
Commons elected on the principle 
of geographic representation. Un- 
til now. residence in this country 
has been the essential qualifica- 
tion.' In theory, at least people 
vote not for a government but for 
an MP to represent them. Now we 
have a class of voter who does not 
live in foe country, let alone a 
specific constituency, has no di- 
rect contact with i ts problems, and 
probably pays no taxes. 

Gerald Kaufman neatly defined 
Labour's objection. He asked why 
the votes of people sunning them- 
selves in tropical dimes should 
effectively decide the heating 
allowances of pensioners . shiver- 
ing in Britain, indeed, with voles 
at stake, it will be interesting to see 
if the government actually moves 
m the direction of the expatri- 
ates — for example, in the treat- 
ment of their tax or pensions. 


Conservatives Abroad plans to 
distribute a news-sheet sped fically 
to inform its members about UK 
legislation which might affect 
them. 

What is the case for giving 
people foe vote wherever they 
may be in foe. world? There is the 
narrow precedent of proxy votes 
for diplomats and foe Services 
overseas. Yet ifihego-geners who 
built foe Empire never had the 
vote why give their successors the 
privilege now? . 

The answer, principally, is that 
in these limes of easy travel and. 
the advem of multi-national 
employers, many people work 
abroad for temporary periods but 
do not Jose touch with Britain. For 
them, the right to vote is. an 
essential tic. and , foe reformers 
claim that constitutional practice 
should evolve to recognize mod- 
em conditions of life. - 

Parliament's compromise .is to 
limit the overseas franchise to 
voters who have been abroad for 
less lhan five years. Originally the' 
government had proposed a' cut- 
off at seven years, and some 
Tories wanted it to be 10 years. . 
The Home Office promised to 
keep this m mind for future 
legislation. Plainly, this reform of 
the franchise could, run longer

Putting exams 
to the test 




The other dav I was sent a sample 
GCSE examination paper entitled 
“English Paper 2 - Understand- 
ing and Response” set by the 
London and East Anglian Group. 
The paper consisted of several 
extracts from The Secret Diary oj 
Adrian Mole, that wise contem- 
porary classic, and another pas- 
sage. unidentified, about a young 
girl's visit to an old people's home. 

Candidates have 15 minutes to 
read the passages and an hour and 

three quarters to answer five 
demanding questions. One re- 
quires the candidate to "Imagine 
that you are an elderly person 
reading these two passages” and 
“Give your impressions of foe two 
young people involved”. This 
exam, to be sat by most 15 or 16- 
y ear-olds, requires considerable 
skills of perception, comprehen- 
sion and writing ability. Any pupil 
who can approach these questions 
will not only understand and 
respond to a wide range of writing 
but also be equipped to continue 
to respond outside school. 

When foe argument over the 
timetable for introducing GCSE 
was at its height, one of the factors 
that influenced me was the dis- 
crediting of foe old, parallel 
system of GCE and CSE. It is not 
just the tout neuf. tout beau 
syndrome, as in the August plate 
change which influences foe whole 
pattern of car sales. The entire 
philosophy and organization of 
foe old dual system had been 
shown up as being fruity. 

It is true that GCEs and CSEs 
had come to cater for frr more 
children than was originally in- 
tended It is also true that foe real 
impact of GCSEs will not be felt 
until foe candidates are assessed 
against set standards rather than 
against one another — in foe jar- 
gon. criterion rather than norm 
referenced But with a far more 
imaginative approach to “set 
books” and questions, the new 
English exam looks like a distinct 
improvement. In aiming to test 
understanding as much as knowl- 
edge, it also seems to avoid the 
other extreme of merely setting up 
arbitrary technical criteria, or foe 
new accounting assumption that 
can be measured 
. But in applauding these 
changes, let me sound two notes of 
caution.The first concerns the 
continued over-dominance of our 
whole school system by exams, 
and thus the retention of a 
hierarchy of exams, subjects and 
knowledge created by foe univer- 
sities. The new GCSE boards have 
broken away from their prede- 
cessors, which were creatures of 
university requirements; yet it is 
still the case, as one iconoclastic 
headteacher commented that 
young people seek employment 
only when they have failed at one 
of foe hurdles, rather than feeling 
qualified by leaping a hurdle. 

Thus, although the A level 
syllabus continues to be largely 
determined by university entrance 
regulations, less than a third of A 
level candidates actually go to 


university. I am not suggesting 
that we move towards measuring 
more factors - as YTS courses 
now “measure” time-keeping and 
personal cleanliness — but rather 
that complementary means of 
recording achievements should be 
developed alongside foe GCSE. Is 
it necessary, for example, even for 
a pupil gifted in the con- 
ventionally academic way and 
intending to go on to A levels and 
higher education, to take examina- 
tions in all subjects studied to 16? 

My second caution is in respect 
of those for whom foe GCSE is, in 
effect, too late (or of foe late 
developers, for whom it is too 
early). Although no one seriously 
believes that exams are anything 
but a very rough proxy for the real 
talents of job applicants or those 
aspiring to continuing education, 
we are. all of us. reluctant to drop 
our reliance on them as often as 
we should. 

Mature students and ones with- 
out A levels still form a tiny 
proportion of those entering 
higher education. In this context 
foe government's recent ann- 
ouncement of research funding to 
help explore ways of selecting 
adult students is welcome — 
though one wonders what kept 
them. I hope that the acceptance 
of the principle of transferabil- 
ity — foe system to be researched 
originated in the United States — 
will be only foe first step along 
that road, f do not accept that 
institutions cannot acknowledge 
experience gained informally in 
the formal context of admissions. 
Both formal, school-based learn- 
ing and knowledge absorbed in life 
after school do, in the best of all 
worlds, bead in foe same direc- 
tion. 

Exams that depend on passing 
or failing as foe main categories — 
which GCSE, for ail its differenti- 
ation for different pupils, will still 
do — overlook the obvious: that 
the demonstration of many abil- 
ities is more probablistic than 
absolute. Human behaviour does 
not always fit into foe superficially 
simple and attractive boxes of 
“can” and “cannot”. In addition, 
it is worth pointing out that 
mature students often gain better 
results than those entering straight 
from school. 

As foe recent Alliance docu- 
ment Partnership for Progress 
says: “There is nothing wrong with 
seeing educational certification as 
a passport, provided it is given on 
fair criteria and is available to all. 
If we persist with a system in 
which only a limited number of 
passports are available, it will not 
be surprising if the majority feel 
disenfranchized." 

Thus examination papers 
involving Adrian Mole are only 
foe first step. The example he 
offers should be used, not only for 
exam questions, but to force us to 
accept the skills he displays in bis 
life as being equally valid to those 
of foe classroom.

distinction of having performed in 
both the Commonwealth Games 
and the Edinburgh FestivaL A 
singing athlete? A 400 metres 
mime artist? Not quite; he is a fine 
piper, and his band was to be seen 
and beard marching in the open- 
ing ceremony of both events — 
though, if I read correctly be- 
tween .foe lines, the Festival 
Cavalcade was more fun, if only 
because there were too many 
people at foe Games (which is die 
first time they have had that 
particular criticism). 

“Our band is called the Scottish 
Caledonia Gas Pipes and Drums, 
for foe very good, reason that we 
are sponsored by the Gas Board”, 
Hugh says. “They look after us 
well enough, and I hoped at the 
start that we might be eligible for a 
discount on zbe gas bill. But this 
proved too revolutionary.” 

“Do you wears special tartan?” 

“Yes, we do. Very. special, as a 
matter of fact, because we asked 
foe Scottish College of Textiles to 
design it for us. We gave them foe 
Gas Board colours, foe bright blue 
and the touch of purple, and they 
got their computer to come up 
with the best possible arrange- 
ment. so we've actually got a 
computerized tartan. Nothing 
fuddy-duddy about foe Gas 
Board!” 

"What’s foe tartan called?” 

“Hunting Propane.” 

For a moment, I almost .be- 
lieved him. 

“No, actually, it's called foe 
William Murdoch tartan, after the 
man who invented foe casserole or 
something” 

As if this were not enough work 
for Edinburgh, Hugh has also 
helped, organize a Festival show. 
He is with the newly united 
National Museums, .and did a lot 
of work on foe new Ingenious Scot 
exhibition down at foe National 
Gallery. This is a hymn of praise 
ip all foe bright Scots who have 
invented and perfected the things 
that make the world a better place 
ao live, and also people like 
Alexander Graham Bell and John 
Logie Baird, who came up with foe 
telephone and television. So I had 
to pay the show a visit, ostensibly 
to please Hugh, but really to see 
how well foe Scottish Gas Board 
came out of it 


It sounds a funny thing to say, 
but I don’t think the Scots tike 
boasting much about their home 
achievements, only their inter- 
national successes. Harry Lauder, 
like Billy Connolly, is a bit of a 
hero because be made it abroad, 
and one of foe stunning items in a 
good show is the life-size version 
of Lauder which (thanks to a 
filmed performance by Bill Pater- 
son) actually talks, laughs and 
winks at you. 

On the other band, foe Scots get 
sick of their international reputa- 
tion if it’s based .on tourist 
trimmings: There are two symbols 
of Scotland on display outside the 
gallery. One is Oor Wullie, foe 
cartoon figure from the Sunday 
Post foe cheeky lad frae Glasgow. 
The other is a Gerald Scarfe 
creation, a tartaned piper blowing 
bagpipes which light up electric 
bulbs at every extremity. The 
crucial point is that Scarfe's 
Scotsman, whistled up by an 
English artist, contains all the 
Scottish cliches, while there is 
nothing about Oor Wullie - visu- 
ally -which makes him in the 
least Scottish. Mark you, Oor 
Wullie is himself a bit old- 
fashioned now — he must be. the 
only Scots character left still 
raying Mings” and "Crivens” - 
but he’s still a necessary corrective 
to foe English view of John Logie 
Baird as a wee kilted man saying. 
a a bonny bonny 

Mel Caiman, with whom I am 
touring foe show, points out that 
quite rightly there is a showcase 
devoted to Scottish drinking his- 
tory, which includes a 1 9th cen- 
tury c ^ v ‘9 e measuring die 
arengfo of drinks. It’s a little box 
of numbered glass beads, all 
different. When foe right-num- 
oered bead drops to the bottom of 
foeglass. youve got foe. correct 
strength of foe drink. 

Imagine using them at a 
efti murmurs Mel, “and find- 
mg u harder and harder to get the

eventually people don’t care any 
more, and are swallowing the glass

Wiih ihe textbook launch of its 
new HI rocket Japan has in the 
pasr- few days taken a stride 
toward independence in space 
technology, freeing itself from 
reliance on the United.States. 
If the next steps are executed 
as faultlessly, the first truly 
made-in-Japan rocket will take 
to the sky in 1991, with the 
power to put a two-ton satellite 
into the geostationary orbit 
essential'fbr communications, 

It is difficult to resist the 
symbolism of the launch. Here 
is the end of tutelage, and not 
just In high technology (signs 
abound of Japanese move- 

mem into basic. science). The 

launch of HI comes only 
weeks after the Nakasone gov- 
ernment committed itself to a 
much-expanded defence pos- 
ture: the capacity, to launch 
rockets and the capacity to 
wage war may not eventually 
be easily disentangled. Japan's 
emergence as a space power 
crystallizes its past progress 
towards global economic 
strength. It points forward to 
new Japanese diplomatic and 
military activity, and the selfc 
conscious (second) arrival of 
Japan as a world power. 

The launch itself was a 
milestone on a long path. 
More modest payloads have 
been launched during a careful 
programme of space technol- 
ogy which began 17 years ago. 
The technology for the rockets 
was licensed from the United 
States, in parallel with other 
Japanese development work. 
The arrangement was restric- 
tive. h forbade the use of 
vehicles to launch satellites for 
foreign countries. 

The first vehicle to be built 
in Japan, called N1 and based 
on the American Delta rocket, 
was fired successfully in 1975. 
The new H2 launcher, on 
which' work starts next year, 
will challenge the progenitors. 


U will compete directly , with 
the American launchers and 
with Ariane, the European 
vehicle, for the potentially 
lucrative business of putting 
commercial and scientific pay- 
loads into space. . 

The Japanese success would 
have been spectacular at any 
time. To arrive during the 
disarray at the National Aero- 
nautic and Space Administra- 
tion and the grounding of 
Ariane adds poignancy to the 
Japanese achievement Worse, 
from the American point of 
view, is the coincidental news 
. that the Soviet Union has 
established a new. space 
. agency, Glavkosmos. which is 
offering the West bargain-price 
launches on its Proton rocket 
In an opportunistic move, the 
Russians are offering a price of 
under $20 million — or half 
that of Ariane — to launch a 
satellite. 

There is some way to go 
before Japan becomes a full 
member of the first division in 
space. The flight of HI was 
really a test for the next 
generation in. rocketry. None 
the less, in the process the 
Japanese put two satellites into 
space, one for use by ham 
radio operators and the other 
for geodetic surveys. 

Japan's success will result in 
a welcome increase in com- 
petition in the international 
market for communications 
satellites. The Japanese gov- 
ernment recently decided to 
allow private business to buy 
satellites for launching, follow- . 
ing the ending of the monop- 
oly belonging to NTT, the 
huge state-owned Nippon 
Telegraph & Telephone Cor- 
poration. Previously, the 
shackles imposed by the 
Americans on launch avail- 
ability were exacerbated by 
domestic restrictions on type 
of satellite. Here was another 


reason why the lopsided bal- 
ance. of Japanese trade could 
not be redressed by buying 
foreign satellites for launch, or 
by collaborating with tele- 
communications firms in the 
United Slates and ■ Europe 
which would supply equip- 
ment and knowledge for the 
development of information 
technology and broadcasting 
networks. Now the field of 
telecommunications services ' 
is open to competition, though 
considerable government re- 
gulation remains: 

In its first phase of develop- 
ment, the Japanese National 
Space Development Agency 
limited its programme to two 
satellite launches a year. In 
customary Japanese spirit the 
agency ordered spacecraft only 
from a fledgling local industry, 
so removing the danger of 
being swamped by the more 
experienced high technology 
teams in this field from the 
United States and -Europe. 
Now the. doors of competition 
are open, Japanese capacity- is 
in' place, and strong. 

But the programme of large 
satellites planned for H2, with 
50 launches expected over 15 
years, still requires an injec- 
tion of more advanced tech- 
nology. The Japanese launch 
is, unmistakeably. an early 
warning of the emergence of a 
formidable competitor in tele- 
communications. satellite pro- 
vision and launch capability: it 
also signals an opportunity for 
new collaboration. And the 
motto has wider relevance. 
Some role grander than its 
present intermediate or 
“‘Asian" standing in diplo- 
macy and world politics awaits 
the Japanese competitor/ 
collaborator. The capacity to 
launch rockets and so to take 
part in the utilization and 
exploration of space is a good 
definition, for the century to 
come, of great power status. 


CHARGING IN THE CATHEDRAL 


The English Tourist Board 
reports that three and a half 
million visitors per year pass 
through the doors of West- 
minster Abbey, making it the 
most- visited historic building 
in the country. .'Those i who 
have been recently report that , 
they aH seem to be there on the 
same day. 

It is not surprising that the 
Abbey’s own staff are said 
sometimes to repair to St 
Margaret's next door or West- 
minster .Cathedral nearby, in. 
search of a peaceful space to 
say their prayers. By press of 
numbers^ England's principal 
house of religion is more or 
less given over to tourists in 
the month of August Also St 
Paul's. York and Canterbury 
cathedrals, where the numbers 
visiting are of the same order. 

Tourism has economic im- 
portance. so it is plain that the 
national heritage of ancient 
religious buildings is a contrib- 
utor to the wealth of the 
nation. In return, the nation 
invests very little, for the total 
returned to the Treasury in 
VAT on repairs and mainte- 
nance for such buildings prob- 
ably exceeds what they receive 
in state aid: 

Any cathedral chapter which 
dares to contemplate imposing 


an admission charge can be 
sure of a wave of local and 
national resistance. So they . 
tend to take the less controver- 
sial course- of charging for 
admission to the crypt- or - 
chapter-house, or “inviting” 

. donations' at the . door — . the . 
most effective ruse being to 
make the invitation to donate 
look like a compulsory charge 
without actually saying soJn 
‘ many cases the fabric quietly 
deteriorates, as necessary re- 
pairs are postponed. Or the 
chapter just gets by, on pro- 
ceeds from the book shop, 
collections, and spasmodic ap- 
peals. 

Either the inhibition against 
sensible entrance charges 
should be sensibly overcome, 
or some way found of return- 
ing through the state purse 
much more of the revenue, 
from, tourism, that these his- 
toric assets generate. 

Controversy over admission 
charges arises from a false 
opposition between piety and 
trade. An opposition is some- 
times proposed between the 
clamour of coach parties and 
the. requirements of the con- 
gregation of regular worship- 
pers, one purpose thought 
essentially secular, one con- 
sidered spiritual. But the medi- 


eval cathedral was usually 
designed tp cope with the co- 
existence of couth and -un- 
couth: canons at their office at 
one end, chickens'bbught and 
sold at the other. The .' 
medieval s knew, why Jesus, 
drove the money-changers out 
of the Temple: and it was not 
because commerce itself is 
ungodly. 

The attraction of visitors in 
large numbers to these ancient 
buddings is a remarkable trib- 
ute to the magnates and ma- 
sons who built them, and to 
those who have cared for them 
since. Visitors are glad they are 
there, and want them to re- 
main. They would surely not 
count it an imposition to be 
asked to make the future of the , 
buildings more secure: 

Nevertheless not every great 
cathedral is geographically i 
well-placed to profit from ! 
tourism, and the introduction 
of standard entrance charges at 
ail of them would cope un- 
evenly with need. The case for 
charging for admission to 
Westminster Abbey would be 
even stronger, and the willing- 
ness of visitors to accept such a 
charge even greater, if it was 
known that Ripon or Peter- 
borough. say, would share in 
the proceeds too. 


CAMP DAVID AND TABA 


Last week's arbitration agree- 
ment between Israel and Egypt 
oveT the disputed Sinai area of 
Taba must be counted a small 
step in the wider search for 
Middle East peace. Yet the 
dispute, over a mere 700 yards 
of beach on the Red Sea, was 
always bigger than it appeared. 
On it hinged the chance of 
improvement in relations be- 
tween Egypt and Israel, which 
the Egyptians have doggedly 
resisted since withdrawing 
their ambassador from Tel 
Aviv- during Israel's invasion 
of Lebanon in 1982. For the 
sake of that opportunity the 
Taba agreement is welcome. 

To both the Israelis and the 
Americans, Egypt's insistence 
on settling Taba has seemedio 
be little more than a pretext for 
President Mubarak to avoid 
taking steps towards “nor- 
malization” of relations as laid 
down in the Camp David 
accords. Distancing himself 
from Israel gave the president 
the opportunity both to im- 
prove relations with his Arab 

Prime time for crime 

From Inspector G. Bourne-Taylor 
Sir. Your editorial (August II) 
suggests that daily television pro- 
grammes on the lines of weather 
bulletins could be broadcast to 
help the community in the “battle 
against crime*’. - • 

An interest in the weather is 
acknowledged to be our national 
pastime, but although anti-crime 
bulletins may be in the public 
interest they arc not in the same 


neighbours and contain his 
own religious extremists, at the 
expense of the peace process. 
Egyptian popular feeling saw 
in the refusal of Israel to 
submit the Taba question to 
arbitration a symbol of the 
Jewish state's bad faith. Anti- 
Israeli feeling in Egypt is not 
confined to religious fanatics 
and intellectuals. It runs right 
through society. Nevertheless, 
there were good reasons for the 
Egyptians, with some pressure 
from the Americans, to come 
to an agreement over the issue. 

Shimon Peres is seen by the 
Egyptians as holding out hope, 
for some eventual overall 
settlement of the Palestinian 
problem. It was important that 
Cairo should improve rela- 
tions before he leaves office in 
October, as a sign to the 
Israelis of Egypt's own good 
faith in peace. 

The question after Taba ts 
how far President Mubarak 
can afford to have genuinely 
better relations with Israel, 
and to what extent the West 

way of interest and might not be 
regarded as attractive viewing — 
Crimenwcb has a dramatic appeal 
which could not be sustained on a 
daily basis. 

The Home Office produces 
good crime-prevention material 
for which the commercial tele- 
vision channels offer free off-peak 
viewing lime, but regrettably, as a 
consequence, these “fillers" are 
only seen late at night. if at aJL ' 

Television time costs money 
and without considerable goodwill 


should exert pressure for them. 

The Israelis want not just 
the return of an Egyptian 
ambassador, and a summit 
between the two presidents, 
but also an improvement in 
trade and tourism. In short, 
they would like a move to- 
wards the normalization pro- 
cess cut short in 1982. 

This may be impossible for 
President Mubarak to deliver 
without endangering his own 
domestic position. Egypt's 
economy is in a poor state: 
discontent at rising prices is 
vocal. Overt agreement with 
Israel would increase the un- 
popularity of the Mubarak 
regime, and heighten the risk 
of violent disturbance. ' 

For the West the balance of 
advantage lies at present in 
keeping Mubarak in' power,* 
rather than in forcing the pace 
in what is a long-term process 
of peace-seeking. It is more 
important that Egypt remains 
stable than that the fine print 
of the Camp David agreement 
is observed.

From MrJ. C. Hartgilf and others 
Sir. Now that the panel of the 
HM61 112 enquiry set up by the 
Tower Hamlets District Health 
Authority has reported, and Mrs 
Savage has been reinstated, it is to 
be hoped that the enquiry into the 
Department of Obstetrics and 
Gynaecology at The London Hos- 
pital which is now being organised 
by. the district health authority will 
see fit to explore the problems that 
led Ip Mrs Savage's suspension, as 
well as the . effect which the 
prolonged, expensive procedure 
has had on the department, the 
hospital and the community. 

Far many years the maternity 
department of “The London" 
have supported the rights of 
women to determine the mode of 
their care believing it to be. 
fundamental that they be fully 
counselled, prior to their decision, 
by a professional of their own 
choice. 

Every effort has been made, 
within the limited resources avail- 
able. to support those who wish to 
devolve the care of healthy mater- 
nity patients to the community, 
provided that this process is 

properly and comprehensively 
organised for the welfare of the 
women concerned. Similarly, the 
processes of natural childbirth 
have been encouraged, in conjunc- 

Post beyond the pale 

From Lord Beswick 
Sir, The splendid results reported 
by the Post Office for 1985-86 
support the contention that it is 
possible to secure an efficient, 
innovative. profitable 

organisation without the fashion- 
able device of hiving off cash by 
way of dividends to absentee 
shareholders. Much credit should 
go to the public-spirited leadership 
of the present Post Office chair- 
man and his colleagues. 

But could I add some further 
thoughts? Internal letters carried 
by the Royal Mail increased by 5.9 
per cent, the bigbest-ever leveL 
Positive marketing no doubt ac- 
counts for some or this. However, 
judging by my own mad increase 
and that of friends this extra 
carriage does not reflect the 
growth of a genuinely healthy 
economy. 

Of course personal letters are 
more than welcome; commercial 
correspondence, bills etc. some 
charity appeals are expected, but ' 
more than a 5.9 per cent increase 

Chapel heritage 

From the Director of the Council 
for British Archaeology 
Sir. Not everyone would agree 
with Mr -Ralph Fennell's sugges- 
tion (August 2) that "far too 
many” Nonconformist chapels are 
being listed. Nor is it unreasonable 
that pants for die repair of 
outstanding chapels should cany 
conditions which may preclude 
the drastic alteration of their 
interiors. 

Many conservationists are puz- 
zled by the impression which is 
sometimes given by members of 
the Free Churches that their 
ministry in some way lessens their 
responsibilities towards listed 
buildings. Owners of listed bouses, 
or mills, or railway stations, free 
up to the challenges of conserva- 
tion, sometimes with reluctance, 
but just as often with enthusiasm 
and pride: 

In feet, my council is not alone 
among national organizations in 
supporting a continuation of 
ecclesiastical exemption, albeit in 

Used engine oil 

From Dr John Drewe 
Sir. The widespread scepticism of 
motor manufacturers that 6.000 
miles is too short an interval 
between routine oil changes, 
which was mentioned in your 
report (August 9) of the possible 
health hazards of contact with 
used engine oil, is completely 
misplaced. 

Firstly, the petroleum-based oils 
generally used in the United 
Kingdom have different prop- 
erties to tbe mineral oils which are 
used, for example, in Germany, 
There is evidence, from claims 
made under manufacturers’ war- 
ranty, that mechanical problems 
occurring when fabrication is by 
the petroleum oils are insignifi- 
cant when using mineral oils. 

Secondly, whatever the physical 
composition of the oiL it will 
experience a more rapid deteriora- 

Upstairs, downstairs 

From Mrs E. Donald 
Sir. There was concent at the 
Queen having to- climb 152 steps 
after a heart examination. I hope I 
may extend this concern to the 
lives of commoners. 

At Lancaster Gate underground 
station both lifts are shut down for 
renovation. A notice directing 
users to the stairs tells us the lifts 
will be dosed for two years. I 
counted 103 steps, half of them on 
a spiral staircase. 

Dragging up and down them 
daily are mothers and babies and 
small children and their gear: also 
the dderly, some of them no 
doubt with bad beans. What 
happens to the handicapped I 
have - no idea. Those who can't 
make it are blithely told to use 
another station. 

Nor is this just a residents’ 
station. It caters for thousands of 
people catching trains at Padding- 
ton or airbuses to Heathrow, and 
it serves a main tourist hold area. 
That means luggage, too. 

If a skyscraper can be built in 
two years, which I am told it can. 
what is the matter here? More to 
the point: what can be done about 
it? 

Yours faithfully.

Clearly no large maternity unit

Since this necessitates integrated

reduction in viscosity, occurring 
because of oil dilution, is com- 
bined with increased wear over a 
given mileage. A number of 
problems then occur because the 
majority of car owners ignore the 
recommendation (owners' man- 
uals) that oil should be changed 
more often during urban driving. 

Finally, h is inappropriate to 
dismiss any suggestion that con- 
tact with used engine oil may be a

good practice to avoid wearing

Fatherless families 

From the Chairman of Families

Sir. Life experience and common

parents thrives better than one 
reared by only one. Why is it that 
the one-parent family lobby

■ against apartheid 

i From Dr Brian Dollcry 

Sir. Economic sanctions against 
South Africa as an instrument for 
effecting political change can be 
questioned on both efficiency and 
equity grounds. Moreover. West- 
ern moral standards are not 
compatible with the notion that 
the sins of a few should be visited 
on the many. 

What is needed is a carefully 
considered policy which seeks to 
penalise those perpetuating apart- 
heid and reward those individuals 
and organisations who oppose 
apartheid — the so-called “rifle- 
shot" approach. 

It should not be beyond the 
capabilities of Western intelli- 
gence services to acquire the 
membership records of the 
governing National Party and 
other far-right political 
organisations such as the 
Brocderbond and the Conser- 
vative Party. 

People belonging to 
organisations of this kind could be 
refused visas, denied employment 
and contracts with multinationals 
operating in South Africa and 
elsewhere, until such time as they 
publicly and categorically re- 
nounce apartheid. 

Similarly, organisations which 
practise racial segregation by 
choice — like the universities of 
Poichefsiroom and Pretoria — 
should be appropriately penalised. 

On the other hand, those in- 
dividuals and organisations who 
actively express their opposition 
to apanheid should enjoy the 
moral and financial support of the 
Wen. Thus, bodies like the South 
African Communist Party and 
others who employ violence as a 
means toward the end of revolu- 
tionary socialism would not only 
forfeit Western assistance, but also 
subject themselves to the kinds of 
penalties outlined above. 

A policy designed along these 
lines would avoid the twin dilem- 
mas of collective punishment and 
economic destruction inherent in 
international sanctions. More- 
over. it would place the benefits of 
Western support where they be- 
long — in ihe hands of the broad 
majority of moderate South Af- 
ricans who seek a future free of 
racism and totalitarianism from 
the Left or Right.

Parking tickets 

From Mr B. R- Drake 
Sir, The Greek method of dealing 
with parking offences Getter, Au- 
gust 8 ) has much to be admired. 
The .police there remove the 
registration plates, allowing the 
driver to drive his car to his home 
only. It is then up to the driver to 
call at the police station to pay his 
fine and reclaim his plates before 
he can drive the car again. 

With this method the admin- 
istrative cost of collecting fines 
would be vastly reduced and 
would place the burden of fine 
settlement firmly with the of- 
fender. The manufacture of 
registration plates would need to 
be rigidly controlled, as in Greece.

Customer power 

From the Director of the 
Consumers' Association 

Sr, The TUCs suggestion of high 
street shops in which “distressed 
or dissatisfied" customers might 
seek redress (report. August 1 1) is 
scarcely new. My association pio- 
neered the idea of high street 
consumer advice centres 15 years 
ago and saw them develop 
throughout the UK until in 1980, 
with more than 130 such centres 
operating, the withdrawal of Gov- 
ernment money curtailed and 
eventually led to the cut-back of 
this activity.

ON THIS DAY 


AUGUST 18 1920 

A correspondent '* rrfleciitins 
during the Russn- Polish campaign 
nf 1920 which resulted in the 
tH'enthplm ing d> -feat nf the tfwpirf 
Army u hen ir had advanc'd

RUSSIA IN THE 
MASS. 

(Fmm A Correspondent). 

The Russian is utterly unlike the 

Englishman; a few examples will 

show how completely his 3Ltiiude 
of mind differs fmm ours. A 
Russian peasant wants to go by 
train: he walks to the nearest 
station, and wrapping himself in 
his sheepskin coat he sits down and 
waits for the train to come; on 
hour, six hours, a couple iff days, a 

week: it is all the same to him so 
king as be can get hnt tea several 
times a day. 

There was a Russian soldier 
named Michael whom I knew very 
well; he had fought against the 
Germans; the Bolshevist power 
arose, and being taken over by 
them he became a "Red": the 
Ukraniaofi captured him and he 
became one of Petlura's army: from 
there he somehow dritted to the 
“Greens." and was a freebooter 
with his hand against every man: 
he was next taken prisoner by the 
Volunteer Army, and joined it as a 
"White"; by the Volunteers he was 
lent to tbe British Mission, and 
served them well. His needs were 
simple: first and foremost a master 
to tell him what to do: then clothes 
and food; and he was satisfied. 
Given a good officer he wiuild fight 
bravely on any side with the very- 
vaguest ideas as to what he was 
fighting for. 

Literally hundreds of Russians 
of every class have snid to me 
during the last years. “Russia 
cannot right herself: we must have 
outside help"— and this is true, for 
Russians as a whole have reached 
such depths of despair and misery’ 
that they have almost given up 
struggling. They want the British 
to come, for they say the British 
rule without giving offence to the 
ruled, whereas the Germans are 
insulting and bullying, hut that if 
the British will nut help, they must 
call in the Germans, for better 
German help than no help at alL 

THE ARMY. 

Reports from Russia speak of 
Bolshevist “armies." “divisions," 
“regiments," and “battalions." To 
the British public this conjures up 
a vision of columns of Red troops 
with transport and guns, each 
soldier equipped and armed, and 
marching joyously forward to bat- 
tle for his cause. Just as the 
Bolshevist theories of government 
are by no means all bad on paper, 
so are their armies well organized - 
on paper _ 

AD this is done from Moscow — 
on paper. In reality, these armies 
are nothing more than an armed 
rabble, kept at the front against its 
will by a small minority, who bully 
the docile majority into submis- 
sion. Ninety-five per cent, of the 
so-called officers at the front are 
useless — for the Jews, who are the 
driving force of the Bolshevist 
movement, rarely cume up to the 
front line, although each regiment 
has a commissar attached to it. 
The men are armed with every 
imaginable sort of shooting instru- 
ment — Russian, English. German. 
Austrian, French and Japanese 
rifles — all filthy diny and coated 
withrusL 

CLAD IN RAGS. 

Uniform consists of a mans own 
rags, and whatever he can lout or 
steal from prisoners or the dead. 
When following up a Bolshevist 
retirement their dead are usually 
half naked, having been stripped of 
all their clothing by their com- 
rades. On one occasion when the 
Bolshevists were retreating under 
heavy fire 1 found a dead man with 
his trousers and boats gone: they 
had been taken under machine 
gunfire by some comrade who must 
have had considerable need of the 
garments; another time I found a 
young Russian cavalry officer who 
had ventured too far ahead of a 
cavalry attack: some retiring Bol- 
shevist horseman had found time 
to leap from his horse, strip off the 
officer's boots and trousers, and 
poke out his eyes ... 

During the last six months there 
has been a noticeable improvement 
in the Bolshevist forces, as they are 
gradually dropping their Socialist 
ideas of running the army and are 
going back to the old military 
methods. Now Bolshevist officers 
have their servants, and soldiers 
have to salute or stand to attention 
while speaking to an officer or 
Commissar _ 


Awful warning 

From MrJ. A. Meredith 
Sir. We hear these days of sub- 
stances being toxic. Drugs such as 
heroin and cocaine we know are 
addictive. Should we not go back 
to the good old word poison? If 
you swallow enough you will be 
dead, and that is the eno of it

Forthcoming marriages 


The dramatic high-point of the Church of 
England's year so far was die passionate 
speech to the General Synod in July by the 
Bishop of Durham, the Rt Rer. Da rid 
Jenkins, in deface of his doctrinal opinions. 
Since then that pordailar controversy has gone 
suddenly rather quiet; and the quietest are 
those who were previously defe nd i n g the 
bishop. It is a significant silence. He seems to 
have lost some allies. 

If this b the case, the reason most be that he 
overstated his case so strongly that many who 
'tboagfat they were with with him now realize 
they are not. The Bishop ofDnriuun, it begins 
to appear, is not really a typical liberal 
theologian at all bnt a “one-ofT, with opinions 
all his own. 

The straggle between him and his critics will 
inevitably go on, hat it ceases to he a collision 
between conventional liberals aid conserva- 
tives, as it has bees billed so far. The Church of 
i England thought it had solved that one, by 
means of the statement from die House of 
Bishops. It laid down the conservative position 
as die Chnrdi of England’s official belief; and 
thea licensed the liberals who want to question 
bits of it, on the grands that it is not the Angli- 
can way to stifle genuine scholarship. 

Bnt the Bishop of Durham's address to the 
synod repudiated the whole of the statement, 
notwithstanding that he was supposed to be a 
signatory. He appeared to be saying drat die 
great majority of the bishops - perhaps all of 
them apart firmn himself - were not Christians 
at alL So the response since then can only be 
called an embarrassed one, the start of tone the 
local vicar might adopt on bring co n fro n ted 
with the parish crank. And they had best over 
backwards to make room for what they thought 
were hisopiniora. 


would have to repudiate the conservative 
position as anti-Christian and evil, not just 
intellectually weak in the light of the evidence.

The Bishop of Durham’s theological posi- 
tion, as he toM it to the synod, amounts to this: 
there could not have been any miraculous 
factor (any superaatml intervention overrid- 
ing natmal order) in the conception of Jesns 
nor in His Resurrection, became the God of 
Christianity would never de such frogs. The 
concept ofa God held by those who put faith in 
such “divine laser beam" miracles is either a 
“cubic idol" or “the very devil” (in whom, 
unlike most liberals, the Bishop of Dmham 
seems to believe). 


Mr &E.T. Synge 

and Miss M.F. Macdonald 
The forthcoming marriage is 
announced, and will take place 
on September IS, between Ed- 
ward Synge, of London, SW3, 
and Moira Macdonald, of 
Ancnun, Roxburghshire. A 
reception will be held in Loudon 
later in the year. 


For such a God would be guilty, by inaction, 
of allowing Auschwitz and pennittiBg Hiroshi- 
ma, when he could have intervened to stop 
them. God did not intervene; therefore He was 
not able to: He is not that start of God. 

So even liberals who are sceptical about 
miracles in the Bible, on the grounds that toe 
historical and literary evidence is doubtful, 
could well still be idol worshippers or devil 
worshippers. To escape such a charge, they 


■ One school of theology defines the problem 
differently by taming to the idea of God as an 
action rather than a thing, a verb rather than a 
noun, and finds His presence in the straggle for 
human liberation, which therefore takes on a 
mystical as well as a political aspect, They 
concentrate on God's “immanence”, down- 
grading; his “transcendence”. 

What the Bishop of Durham has done is to 
take this novel and interesting perspec tiv e and 
make it the exclusive truth, by means of which 
he would have none call themselves Christians 
who do not adopt it too. But it is at besta tenta- 
tive tori, not to be pnshed too fost or too for, for 
exploring difficult theological frontiers. Such 
speculations are ill-suited as knock-down 
arguments against standard orthodoxy, espe- 
cially when they are pushed to toe point of «- 
dmetio ad absardum. It is now dear, more than 
a month after the bishop's speech to toe synod, 
that toe Church of England Is not amused.

OBITUARY 

CAPTAIN H. RYAN PRICE 
Champion trainer and master of the turf 


The Bishop of Durhxm has taken to 
extremes the sincere appeal of post-war 
O irfctfr" theologians on the Continent, partic- 
nhriy Gennaoy, that it is no longer possible 
“to do theology with one's hack to Auschwitz". 
But their writings are foil of fear aad trembling 
as they contemplate the awfrdness of what 
happeaed there, and they would surely count it 
irreverent to use Aus chwit z to score a point 

about something else. 

They have re-examined toe theological 
“problem of evil” in the fight of it, as well as 
delving into toe Christian origins of anti- 
Semitism m a radical way. But they have 
shown no great interest in cfcaDeugjng toe 
Virgin Birth and Empty Tomb in the name of 
post-Hofocaust integrity, however. Perhaps it 
is not dear to this Co ntinenta l school that 
Auschwitz aad EGroshnoai raise philosophical 
problems of evil that were not already around: 
why, for instance, God did not intervene with 
“laser-beam miracles" (to use the bishop's 
expression) to prevent the Battle of the 
Somme, die Blade Death, toe pers e c uti on of 
die early Christians, or Indeed the Oudfixlon 
itsd£ 


The so-called problem (or paradox) of evil Is 
♦hat evil exists and jot God does not intervene 
to prevent it Either He cannot be absotately 
powerful (He would intervene if He coaid, hot 
cannot); or He cannot be absolutely good (He 

answers vary from the clinical (<*od allows 
men's free will, even if toe result is evil) to dm 
mystical (the re dempti v e power Of s uffering 
through union with Christ on the Cross) and 
even die atheistir (_ therefore God does not 
exist).

Captain H. Ryan Price, MC, 
one of the most colourful and 
successful racehorse trainers, 
died on August 16, his 74ih 
birthday, after a prolonged 
illness. 

Henry Ryan Price was Sus- 
sex-born and bred, one of 
right children of George and 
Catherine Price in the village 
of Wisbo rough Green. Sur- 
rounded by horses - his father 
was an outstanding horseman 
- Price became a brilliant 
point-to-point rider at an early 
age. 

Too heavy to become a 
professional jockey, he turned 
to training horses The war 
intervened, however, and he 
joined 6th Commandos (N. 
Staffs) and saw distinguished 
service at the Normandy land- 
ings. He ended the war on the 
shores of the. Baltic and was 
awarded the Mfihaiy Cross. 

After demobilisation. Price 
got together a small string of 
jumpers and tried a gain . After 
a slow start, he moved to 
La vant in Sussex from where a 
steady stream of winners 
brought "the captain”, as he 
was affectionately known, into 
the public eye. From that 
moment, he saw to it that he 
was rarely out of it 

An important member of 
the team was Price’s wife, 

I Dorothy, whom he bad met in 
1 1946 and married in the space 
I of four days. Throughout his 
tempesttious life, Dorothy was 
a calming influence who also 
took an active role at Lavant 
as work rider, secretary, cook 
and box-driver: 

Price later bought Downs 
House and the stables at 
Frndon from where Bob Gore 
bad sent out two Grand 
National winners. It was not 
long before there was a third, 
Kilmore. 

He was an accurate judge of 
people as well as horses, and in 
1949 he hired the young Fred 
Winter as stable jockey. The 
years between 1951 and 1961 



were the golden days of 
Fmdon and aw Price and 


inquiries lasting six months - 
during which time Price's 
loyal owners gave their un- 
stinting support and his em- 
ployees worked without 
payment - the stewards exon- 
erated him. 

He now turned his attention 
to training exclusively for the 
flat In a sudden decision, he 
sold Downs House and the 
surrounding stables to Jodi 
Gifford and moved to a new 
house on Soldiers Field de- 
signed largely by Dorothy. 
Any doubts that he would not 
be successful were dispelled m 
the opening week s of the 1970 
flat race season when, with his 
customary flair for showman- 
ship, he saddled the winner of 
the first two-year-old race ran 
in the south with his very first 
runner. 

In the coming years, Price 


Winter together win most of proved that be was equafly 
the important National Hunt adeyrt at producing horses to 

Kv linn tin* rnKtlRAHl flat fflCCS 


races. Winter was champion 
National Hunt hockey on four 
occasions and his successor. 
Josh Gifford, also won four 
championships. Price himself 
was leading trainer four times, 
but then the flow of winners 
dried up. 

Price was disqualified from 
training over the running of 
Rosyth in the 1964 Schweppes 
Gold Trophy, and the stable 
was disbanded and the horses 
dispersed to other trainers. 
The captain, however, had his 
licence returned in time for 
the next season, but he was 
g ym in the eye of the storm 
over yet another winner of the 
Schweppes. Hill House in 
1967. 


The circumstances concern- 
ing Hill House were bizarre. 
The Newbury stewards did 
not accept the trainer’s expla- 
nation over the improvement 
in form and referred the case 
to the National Hunt stew- 
ards. Then, to the surprise of 
many. Hill House railed a 
dope test It became a cause 
c&ebre and. after numerous 


win the prestigious flat races 
as he tad been with the 
jumpers. He won two Classics 
for Mr Charles St George, the 
Oaks (with Ginevra) in 1972 
and the St Leger (wiih Brum) 
in 1975. Giacometti, in the 
same ownership, was placed 
in three 1974 classics- Like 
many of Price’s best horses,.aIl 
three were cheaply bought. 

Ryan Price was, quite sim- 
ply, a genius with horses. He 
understood them and, after 
they had been successful, gave 
them die freedom of his 
beloved Downs. Jt was a 
touching sight to see him 
feeding his pensioners, as he 
called them. "They put me 
wbere I am; now, they can 
enjoy life". 

He had an insatiable hunger 
for success, always straining at 
the bit and happiest when 
leading from the front. If this 


leading from the front. If this 
led to a whip of his tongue - 
and it did - praise invariably 
followed in the next breath. 
He both commanded and 
earned respect. 

He is survived by his wife, 
two sons and a daughter. 


MR JOHN TREVELYAN 


Mr John Trevelyan, CBE, 
•secretary of the British Board 
of Film Censors from 1958 to 
1971, who wielded his scissors 
with a diplomatic touch, died 
on August 15. He was 83. 


Trevelyan was born in 
Beckenham, Kent, the son ofa 
parson. His brother, Hum- 
phrey (later Lord Trevelyan), 
was to embark on a glittering 
career at the Foreign Office 
while one of his sisters was to 
many the Bishop of Oxford. . 

He was educated at Lancing 
and Trinity College, Cam- 
bridge, where he gained a third 
is history. It was hoped that 
the young Trevelyan might 
consider a vocation in the 
Church; but his fondness for 
jazz, enthusiasm for sport and 
addiction to cigarettes, which 
he had been developing since 
he was thirteen, seemed to 
suggest otherwise. 



The family moved to the 
south coast where Trevelyan’s 
apprenticeship began in the 
darkness of foe Electric Cine- 
ma in Bournemouth’s Com- 
mercial Road. A casual 
interest in tanking led to an 
interview with the Bank of 
England where he was told 
that, as far as banking was 
concerned, his three years 
reading history had beat a 
; waste of time. 


when be returned from Ger- 
many in 1951, it was suggested 
that he apply to foe BBFC 

board where they bad a vacan- 
cy for an examiner. He got the 
job. and, eight years later, 
against half-a-dozen contend- 
ers, was appointed secretary. 


His desire to travel then 
took him to the Gold Coast on 
a teaching job: It was a period 
which nurtured in him an 
abiding regard for children. As 
fere had it, he was struck down 
with, fever - learnedly de- 
scribed as PUO, pyrexia of 
unknown origin - and wassent 
home on extended leave with 
foe warning not to return to 
Africa. 

Trevelyan spent the next 
two decades as an educational 
administrator in Kent, Sussex, 
Westmorland and. finally, in 
Germany wbere he was re- 
sponsible for setting up 
sdiools for .tiie. children of 
Allied servicemen. Within a 
year, one hundred schools had 
been opened. During his time 
in Westmormnd, as director of 
education, be handled the 
huge intake of evacuees from 
the north-east coast It was at 
this tune that he also wrote m 
article attacking the British 
Board of Film Censors for its 
failure to consider the effect of 
tiie cinema on the young. 

It was not forgotten and. 


Trevelyan came lo the job at 
a time of increasiflgly wide- 
spread permissiveness. He 
tad inherited an organization 
of conservative tastes and 
quickly realised dial he had to 
make up the rules as he went 
along. He knew, many film 
makers personally and was 
fascinated by their work, going 
to foe studios to "meet the 
boys who push the cameras 
around". He was keen to bera 
help rather than a hindrance 
and, to this end, encouraged 
producers to send him unfin- 
ished scripts for inspection, a 
novel .suggestion which tad 
him critized for needlessly 
negatory intervention at the 
creative stage. 

. He realized, too, that the 
cinema could not be seen 
morally to trail behind televi- 
sion in what it screened. With 
shrewdness and tact, he man- 
aged to keep abreast of chang- 
ing attitudes, rolling bade the 
limits of acceptability _ but 
never too far. 


His finest hour was, per- 
haps, the celebrated incident 
at tbe Open Space theatre dub 
in Tottenham Court Road. 
When the Warhol film. Flesh, 
was still rolling, foe police 
burst in and seized it Trevel- 
yan, who had earlier passed 
the film - "It is not my cup of 
tea and, if it was shown 
commercially, people would 
walk out in boredom? - ar- 
rived on the arRni% and at- 


tempted to intervene. It was 
all to no avail; but the incident 
made him to many a champi- 
on of liberalism, an accolade 
which he was happy to accept 
' Trevelyan's was under no, 
illusions that his was a thank- 
less task. He was to be found 
each lunchtime in his 
, favourite Dean Street restau- 
rant wining either a film 
producer or someone from the 
morality lobby. Just around 
the corner, in his Soho offices 
with pornography lapping at 
his doorstep, a 60-hour, week 
was the norm '* 

His appearance lived up to 
the popular image of a censor 
tall thin, with a scholarly air 
and beaky, bespectacled face. 
Visions of bowler hat. dark 
coat and rolled up umbrella 
come naturally. 

In conversation, he was 
fast-talking and very witty. 
But bis greatest gift was diplo- 
macy. It was a gift which he 
often exercised and he never 
shrank from using his scissors, 
especially when it came . to . 
protecting the young. 

"I was perhaps unusual in . 
being a censor who did not 
believe in censorship, in 
principle", he said on his 
retirement. "But, despite this, 

I saw that at the time it was 
desirable". . 

Through his readiness to 
discuss his work in public, he 
became as familiar a figure as 
any non-acting member of the 
film industry, the almost ac- 
ceptable free of censorship 
who preserved, even devel- 
oped. . his libertarian 
convictions. 

He published, in 1973, 
What the Censor Saw, a lively 
survey of censorship through 
the ages which recommended 
that the current film censor- -' 
ship and obscenity laws ; 
should be abolished, accom- 
panied by suitable statutory '; 
provisions for the protection : 
of the young. 

There are numerous hilari-. ' 
ous stories in What the Censor 
Saw. He could not hear the 
Brahms StriDg Sextet No l in r 
B flat without recalling his 
problems in cutting an erotic 
scene in Les A mams, and he 
reflects how. at the BBFC 
office, “we used to call France . 
The home of the X-certiflcate 
bed-scene’ ". ” 

Trevelyan was appointed - 
CBE in. 1971. He was married . 
four times. 


MR HUGH GARDNER

David Robinson discovers history brought to life at the Avignon Film Festival 

’s masterpiece in triumph 



Music in London 
COE/Abbado 
Albert Hall/Radio 3 


This year is the seventieth anniver- 
sary of David Wark. Griffith's Intol- 
erance, the most influential film in 
cinema history and still unsurpassed 
m iis scale and ambition. In ail these 
years, t hough, it can never have had a 
more impressive theatre than was 
provided by the Cour tfHonneur of 
the Papal: palace, of Avignon. The 
soaring . medieval walls seemed a 
natural extension of Griffith's visions 
of ancient ; Babylon, Judaea and the 
Massacre of St Bartholomew's Day- 


Shown on a screen forty feet high, 
the images had the depth and clanty 
of a brand-new film. The print used 
was reconstituted by Raymond 
Rphaucr from Griffith’s - personal 
copy, complete with the original 
colour timing which was an im- 
portant feature of silent film. A new 
symphonic accompaniment by An- 
toine Duhamel and Pierre Jansen was 
performed by the 75-piece Orchestra 
de Tile dc France, under Jacques 
Merrier. 


At each show two and a half 
thousand people crammed the place 
to standing-room capacity, and their 
concentration was awesome tribute to 
Griffith's power as a slory- teller. His 
complex interweaving of four sepa- 
rate stories, brought to simultaneous 
conclusion m a veritable torrent of 
cross-cutting images, remains mes- 
meric no one in these 1986 audiences 
seemed tempted- to laugh at the 
unrestrained sentimentality of 1916. 
or the finale, when angel hosts 
descend to bring peace between the 
warring European armies and trans- 
form prison walls into rose hedges. 


This triumphant resurrection of 
Intolerance is symptomatic of a 
current enthusiasm for retrieving the 
cinema's past — a process that has 
been given as much impetus by 
television's dependence-on old film 
as by the work of. archivists and. 
scholars. With increasing possibilities 
to see old films as they were intended 
to be shown — in bright, clear prints, 
with original tinting and sympathetic 
musical support — it becomes easier 
to view the cinema like any other art 
in a whole cultural and historical 
continuity. Literature and painting 
would be that much less meaningful if 
wc were unaware of Chaucer and 
T mgenev or Carpacccio arid Hogarth: 
and the cinema signifies Lumfereand 
Griffith and Eisenstein as well as next 
week's West End releases. 



Those who have grown too old 
for the Europan Community 
Youth Orchestra, but who still 
cherish the concept of musical 
fraternization on a trans- 
continental scale, graduate to 
the Chamber Orchestra of 


Europe. This starry ensemble 


plays together for several 
months each year, and plays 
very well, too - which only 
increases one's frustration 
when it chooses such safe, 
ordinary programmes. 

Wagner's Siegfried Idyll, a 
Mozart piano concerto 
(K27I). Brahms's Serenade 
No l: this is the meat and 
drink of an average night on 
the South Bank, not the son of 
high hurdles that 50 of 
Europe's best young pro- 
fessionals should be challeng- 
ing themselves to surmount 
on an important tour. It is a 
little surprising that Claudio 
Abbado. who has often spoken 
up elsewhere for more ad- 
venturous programming, does 
not freshen up the thinking 
here. 


Still, at least we were given 
comparatively rare Brahms: a 
work which one is unlikely to 
hear played so well again for a 
long time. Without losing the 
vein of dance-likc rusticity 


running through the music. 
Abbado obtained textures of 
uncommon clarity, and arti- 
culation of exemplary pre- 
cision. It was entirely typical, 
for instance, that in the Ada- 
gio he encouraged a sensuous, 
almost silky string blend while 
insisting firmly on the exact 
placing of the double-dotted 
rhythms. The woodwind solo 
playing was exquisite, both in 
phrasing and timbre, as it had 
been earlier conveying the 
delicious ingenuous quality of 
Siegfried Idyll. 

Andras SchifT was a refined 
and painstaking, rather than 
mercurial, soloist in the Mo- 
zart concerto, giving the sort 
of performance where ev ery' 
note of an Alberti bass is made 
to seem terribly important. A 
penchant for stressing ac- 
cented passing notes in a 
romantic, highly expressive 
manner (especially wistful in 
the tragic-ioned Andantino) 
was a rare indulgence in what 
was essentially an interpreta- 
tion of classical poise. If 
anything. SchifT underplayed 
dramatic possibilities like the 
startling harmonic sidestep in 
the first-movement cadenza. 
But his ornaments were mod- 
els of taste and neatness, he 
frequently gave left-hand de- 
tails a telling prominence, and 
his passage work had a cul- 
tured evenness.

with fall orchestral accompaniment 


than events devoted to 17th-century 
drama or 19th-century opera. The 
. most important of these events 
besides Avignon take place annually 
at Pordenone in northern Italy and 
Perpignan. 


Old films are not museum objects, 
but have still -the vital power to 
express the personalities of artists and 
the sentiments of the times in which 
they Jived. This momentous realiza- 
tion has brought about the creation of 
new festivals exclusively dedicated to 
past fifan. culture — no odder after .all 


Avignon this year organized a 
panorama of wodd cinema between 
1915' and 1920. When this period 
began the old European order was 
still in process of disintegration, 
accomplished by the First World 
War. In 1917 America entered the 
war and Russia left it on the 
whirlwind of revolution. The start of 
the Twenties seemed everywhere to 
mark the dawn of a new age. 


In 1915 Griffith had just made 
Birth of a Motion and was un- 
challenged as the world’s greatest film 
artist. By the end of the period he was 
already eclipsed and he embarked on 
a decline — set off, ironically, by the 
financial disaster of Intolerance. In 


the same period Chaplin leapt to a 
peak of unprecedented international 
idolatry. In America and Europe, as 
the Avignon programme dem- 
onstrated unequivocally, the silent 
film realized its full artistic potential. 

The great political affairs of the 
time figured very little in the movies: 
the audience clearly demanded es- 
cape. An exception recently rediscov- 
ered and unveiled in Avignon is a 
film speculatively entitled Bol- 
shevism — a polished dramatic piece 
about aristocratic Russians robbed 
and abused by the Bolsheviks and 
eventually emigrating to Turkey. The 
film is for the moment one of the 
mysteries of cinema history. There is 
every sign that it was made in a well- 
equipped studio by people who had 
personally experienced the traumas 
of emigration, but no clue has yet 
emerged to indicate who they were or 
where they made their film. 

The period saw the debuts of many 


of those who were soon to become 
major figures in world cinema. In the 
Avignon programme. Fritz Lang 
appeared as screenwriter of a turgid 
thriller. Hilda Warren and Death 
(1917). and an over-dressed period 
piece. Plague in Florence (1919). 
which nevertheless has bits of horrific 
invention — a ghostly figure of death, 
dancing to her own fiddle — that look 
forward to Destiny. On the other 
hand Alexander Korda gave no 
promise of things to come in an early 
Hungarian film. Man of Gold (1918), 
a dull and literal adaptation of a novel 
by Mor Jokai. 

John Ford however, even at 23. 
was already beyond question a great 
film-maker, with a natural, almost 
mystical, ability to express himself in 
moving pictures. His recently redis- 
covered first feature. Straight Shoot- 
ing (1917). might stand with honour 
beside any Western from the.seyenty 
years since it was made:

\!« 


The Summerscope season at 
the Queen Elizabeth Hall 
seems intended by the new 
South Bank management 
. . primarily to give that house a 
sense of purpose as some- 
■ where suitable for particular 
activities rather than a place 
for left-overs. They are look- 
.■» ing for new possibilities and. 

. having tried out a couple of 
. ' operas on the temporary stage. 

. they turned on Friday to their 
first full dance programme. 

The first thing to become 
clear was that the restricted 
• space on. either side of the 
stage will limit the choice of 
what can be done there. 
Besides that, a delegation 
- from several potentially suit- 
able companies commented 
forcibly on the need for a 
properly sprung floor. If that 
can be put right we have a 
good new venue for small- 
scale dance and music-theatre. 

It is a pity that the actual 
.. • programme given on Friday 
did not live up to the occasion. 

. The small English Dance The-, 
atrc from Newcastle, directed 
by Yair Vardi. was presum- 
ably chosen on the strength of 
the programme's musical con- - 
tent. in panicuiar a chamber 
version of Petrushka. VardPs 
ballet uses large chunks of 
Stravinsky's score (slightly . 
more, I think, than the 
composer's own suite which 
John Ncumcicr took for his 
Petrushka I ' ariations. re- 
viewed last week). At its 
premidne last Christmas they 
were arranged fora jazz group: 
this time they were played on 
two pianos. 

Whereas Ncumcicr made 
an abstract treatment Vardi 
attempts a brief chronicle, a 
rearranged version of the full 
plot minus all the incidental 
characters. Ukc Ncumeier. he 
quotes Fokinc's original chor- 


eography for Petrushka, but 
more literally and only in 
rough and ready approxima- 
tion. The result is a crude 
melodrama, with a perfunc- 
tory attempt to give it contem- 
porary point through some 
minimal punk allusions in the 
designs (also by Vardi). 
Worse, none of ■ the four 
performers comes anywhere 
near the measure of the roles 
they are burlesquing. 

Sea Change showed the 
company better. To an aptly 
watery score by Gary Carpen- 
ter, awash with wave-tike 
rhythms, Ed Wubbe's chor- 
eography and design (three 
sails provide the setting) sug- 
gest sailors coming home and 
departing again. The emo- 
tional implications are all too 
wet but die dances, although 
not very original, are capably 
put together. 

Next door on the South 
Bank. London Festival Ballet 
completed its Festival Hall 
season with further perfor- 
mances of Coppelia, including 
several likeable newcomers to 
the. leading roles. Among them 
were Martin James as a nota- 
bly lively, high-jumping 
Franz, Kevin Richmond as Dr 


Coppelius. concentrating suc- 
cesslulh 


fully on the role’s comic 
aspects, and Mireille Bour- 
geois with Davida Bomba na 
as a well-matched pair of 
young lovers at cross pur- 
poses. 

But the company's most 
important performance all- 
week was marching to dem- 
onstrate. with Royal Ballet 
representatives, outside the 
Lyceum. A new London home 
for larger companies is for 
more desperately needed that 
one for small groups. Arts 
Council action now please, 
before it is too late.

After a week of Fringe-going, 
as days and nights begin to 
merge, shows to blend into an 
homognous blur and a hazy 
longing for normality to set in, 
it has to be a strong play that 
pins you to your seat* One that 
does just that is. Bophal 
(Traverse until August 30l an 
electrifying production from 
the Earth Players of the Mar- 
ket Theatre, Johannesburg. 


Percy Miwa’s play is a 
rapid-fire succession of short, 
tightly constructed scenes 
showing life in South Africa 
through the divided loyalties 
and compromised position of 
the black policeman. Weaving 
in disturbing facts about the 
laws governing arrest and 
police activity, it gradually 
moves towards the inevitable 
crisis in a family of which two 
members are in the police 
while a third is a schoolboy 
engaged in demonstrations. 
The three-strong company, 
Aubrey Radebe, Sydney Khu- 
malo and Aubrey MoaJosi 
Molefe, slip in and out of 
moods and roles with dexter- 
ity and speed, and Mtwa's 
production, sometimes angry, 
sometimes moving, vibrates 
with energy and humour vital 
theatre in every sense. 

Rural Catholic Ireland is 
the setting for Polly Peale’s 
one-woman play Fallen, based 
on the recent “Kerry Babies" 
case (Arc Theatre, in associ- • 
ation with the National Stu- 
dent Theatre Company. St 
Mary's Hall until August 30). 
Taking the form of a continu- 
ous flashback. Miss Peale's 
play is not so much concerned 
with establishing firm answers 
about the case — in foci she 
leaves explanations ambigu- 
ous— but with tracing how the 


fife of an ordinary but in- 
dependent-minded girl could 
gradually be turned into a 
nightmare through isolation 
from society. The flashback 
structure of remembered ex- 
perience gives the play an 
inbuilt impediment when it 
coma to expressing intense 
emotions of the nigbtmar- 
ishness of the situation at the 
end. but it is written with 
emotional honesty and hu- 
mour and creates a beautiful 
sense of intimacy. Directed by 
Julia Bardsley, Carole Pluck- 
rose's performance finely con- 
trols the development from a 
candid, inquisitive young girl, 
already noticing the dis- 
crepancies between nature 
and the rulings of society, to a 
desperately lonely but stau- 
nchly defiant young woman. 

At the Mandela Theatre 
(until August 30) “ Eileen 
Nicholas gives a brave and 



What makes a satisfying pro- 
gramme? You may argue that 
it has to do with aesthetic 
coherence, but this extrava- 
ganza of a Prom, conducted by 
Oliver Knussen, proved that 
one answer, at any rate, is 
simply a collection of good 
and attractive pieces. Not that 
the London Sinfonietta's 
choices were entirely un- 
connected: but if there was a 
theme, aside from the obliga- 
tory Italian one. here repre- 
sented by Madcma's Amanda 
and Nono's Condones a 
Guinmar as well as. more 
obliquejy. Oliver Knussen's 
tantalizing Frammenti da 
"Chiara" (given by the BBC 
Singers under Simon Joly). it 
was one that had something to 
do with 20th-century compos- 
ers coming to terms with the 
past. 

Alexander Goehr, in his 
. a musical offering (JSB 

1985) written last year, 

has obviously done that, and 
with the lightest of touches 
which came perhaps dan- 
gerously close to distorted 
pastiche on occasion, though 
the organization of his ma- 
terial is definitively of his own 
time. Webern's wonderful 
orchestration of the Ricercare 
from Bach's Musical Offering 
paid the same sort of homage 
in a different way. by con- 
sciously illuminating the inner 


processes at work. It aho 
emphasizes rhe link of Web- 
ern's own later music with the 
past, whereas the Op 1 3 songs 
(here sung with abundant and 
natural expression by Phyllis 
Bryn-Julson) come 'from' an 
earlier stage. 

For Stravinsky it was the 
influence of the music of the 
late 19th century which for 
most of his life he tried to 
shake off. Witness the two 
brief, dry memorial pieces 
heard here. Epitaphium and 
Double Canon (Raoul Dufy in 
memoriam). boih of 19591 or 
for that matter the brilliant 
burlesque Renard (1916). 
given a sharp performance 
here by the vocal team of Peter 
Hall Ian Caley. David Wj|- 
son-Johnson and Terry Ed- 
wards. But in his eloquent yet 
utterly faithful transcriptions 
of two songs from Wolfs 
Spanish Song Book (1968) 
(Bryn-Julson again), his last 
published work, he seems to 
have completely capitulated. 

In the end. though, it was 
the Italian link that seemed to 
come out on top. Nono's 
work, composed in 1962. is 
long-spanned, other-worldly 
lyricism all the way. Bryn- 
Julson once more gave" a 
lovely performance. The cen- 
tral role in the Madema was 
taken with equal aplomb by 
the violinist Nona LidelL 
letting forth a flowering 
stream of melody in a terrain 
of the most delicate textures.

Sincerity is a quality univer- 
sally praised in public life. The 
Market Theatre Company of 
Johannesburg, who first gave 
this production in September 
last year, leak sincerity from 
every pore. Directed by Bar- 
ney Simon, the piece was 
cobbled togcibcr in the space 
of 1 a month through , the 
expedient of individual re- 
search. Thus. Fiona Ramsay 
boned up on the pan of a 
liberal lawyer. Gcina Mhlophc 
winkled out the nuances of a 
black schoohcachcr. Neil Mc- 
Carthy delved into the meatier 
role of a police spy. and so on. 

Their efforts, unfortunately, 
have resulted in a play which 
has as much sense of pace and 
attack as a telephone direc- 
tory. What passes for plot 
concerns Mr McCarthy’s grad- 
ual. initially reluctant induc- 
tion into the ranks of the 
security police. With a wife 
(Terry Nonon) and baby to 
support, he takes money' for 
betraying his fellow students. 
When he begins an adulterous 
affair with an an teacher 
(Vanessa Cooke) and discov- 
ers seditious pamphlets in her 
flat both she and her activist 
contact (Thoko Ntshtnga) are 
arrested . and subjected not 


unexpectedly, to close ques- 
tioning. 

Personally, one would like 
to question the wisdom of 
presenting such material, 
innocent of dramatic shape or 
purpose, to an audience com- 
posed largely of intelligent 
“Westerners” who must be 
presumed to have followed 
the South African agony in 
newspapers and on television 
at least since the state of 
emergency was first declared 
last year. 

When Miss Norton asks us 
"Did you hear about the.bomb 
in the Wimpy Bar in town?* 7 
one can still picture the after- 
math of that particular out- 


rage. When Mr McCarthy 
declares that apartheid is a 
form of pornography over 
which the outside world 
gloats, one can but notice that 
the stage on which he stands is 
covered with newsprint — and 
wonder whether he under- 
stands the concept of media- 
porn. The evening begins and 
ends with dramatic newsreel 
footage of “the unrest". Noth- 
ing resembling drama occurs 
in between. 

• My apologies to Kerry 
Shale for implying that he 
iff for I 


Glyndeboume showed on Sat- 
urday night that not only 
champagne and summer 
lawns, but scenery itself — 
apart, that is. from grand- 
father clocks and greengrocery 
— can be well-nigh dispensable 
to the success of their produc- 
tion of Albert Herring. Semi- 
staged by Christopher Newell 
for a Summerscope concert 
performance. Peter Hall’s 
original production has trav- 
elled well: the humanity which 
John Higgins praised in it 
earlier this season is still 
warm, and it radiated effort- 
lessly. even over a challeng- 
ingly audible and visible 
orchestra in the Queen Eliza- 
beth Hairs shallow pit. 

It could even be argued that 
the -comparative austerity of 
(his staging was turned' to 
positive advantage. With no 
painted backdrop and no 
wings, a . single black rear 
curtain sufficed, and parallel 
rows of chairs accommodated 
the cast at either side, h had 
the cunning effect of creating 
the claustrophobia of a court- 


room. and anticipating the 
work's denouement: a small- 
town inquisition in which the 
issues, like the costumes, are 
very much a matter of black 
and white. 

Against this inky back- 
ground, the artfully turned 
profile of each player was 
silhouetted to a nicety. There, 
again, was Albert himself, in 
John Graham-Hall a lanky

ing) fussiness of Adrian 
Thompson's Mayor.

cast. Alan Opie as Sid. pro- 
vided ample balance in the 
moral scales, and nice vocal 
counterweight to Derek Ham-

Arson at 
Hamburg 
police 
station 


Continued from page 1 

from within the Tamil 
community. 

Herr Wolfgang Bindel. the 
German sea captain named 
bvHamburg police as having 
carried the Tamils aboard his 
coastal freighter the Aurigae, 
was yesterday sailing home 
and positioned somewhere off 
ihe Azores. According to Ger- 
man police an international 
warrant for his arrest is being 
considered by the Canadian 
authorities, but Herr Bindel 
by ship-to-shone telephone is 
stoutly maintaining his 
innocence. 

He said that the first he 
knew of the affair was when he 
received a telephone call from 
his wife and he then immedi- 
ately turned for home. He 
predicted that it would take 
him nine or 10 days to reach 
Germany. 

Hen* Bindel is believed to 
have paid about 150.000 DM 
for an operation which is 
estimated to have netted him 
at least 700.000 DM. Accord- 
ing to Tamil sources he 
charged 50 marks for a coca- 
cola during the voyage, which 
would have cost 45 pfennigs in 
a German supermarket 

Shore-to-ship radio stations 
in Britain and West Germany 
tried throughout yesterday to 
contact Hen* Bindel aboard 
the Aurigae. but the vessel 
maintained radio silence. 

An official at the Portishead 
radio station in Sommerset 
said it was still not clear if the 
ship was heading north off the 
West African coast as main- 
tained by the captain or was 
travelling east across the At- 
lantic near the Azores. 

**He told the German radio 
station he did not want to 
speak to anyone and that is the 
last we have heard of him," 
said the official. 

German and British sta- 
tions tried around the dock to 
contact Captain Bindel on 
short wave radio, but he never 
answered. 

A shipping source added 
that although sattellites were 
reportedly being used to trace 
the vessel it would be almost 
impossible to identify it on the 
open sea. because it was not 
equipped with a satielite 
signalling device.

Brighton bomb hotel back in business 





»!“Bo

The Grand Hotel, Brighton. 

The Grand Hotel in Brighton will 
open its doors to guests today for the 
first time since the IRA's murderous 
bomb attack on the Government 22 
months ago (David Sapsled writes). 

Five people died and 31 were 
injured in the blast, which blew out 
the front of the hotel. 

About 30 people are expected to 
check in this morning — 10 days 
before the official reopening — at a 
wholly rebuilt hotel designed to new 
standards of elegance, luxury and 
security. There wifi be no signs and no 
reminders of the bomb planted in 
Room 629 by Patrick Magee. 

Mr Richard Baker, hotel manager, 
said last mght:“We are not living in 
the past and we certainly don't intend 
to try and cash in on the tragedy. We 
have what is really a brand new hotel 
and our challenge is to make it work." 
In fact. Room 629 no longer exists. 
Sea-facing bedrooms have been trans- 
formed into large, £130-a-uight exec- 
utive rooms, while the state occupied 


after the IRA bomb blast and now restored to its former Victorian splendour. (Photographs: Peter Trievnor) 


by Mrs Margaret Thatcher on that 
fateful last night of the Tory Party 
conference in October 1984 is now the 
Presidential Suite, with two bed- 
rooms, two sitting rooms, a lounge, 
and a £600-a-oight price tag. 

But the lessons of that night have 
been learned. As part of the £1 1 mil- 
lion rebuilding project, which has 
returned the hotel's facade to its 
Victorian splendour and turned the 
interior into something few of die 
guests two years ago wonld recognize, 
an extensive security system has been 
installed. 

Sussex Police worked closely with 
the architects for De Vere Hotels, 
which owns the Grand, to ensure it 
could be easily “swept” for explo- 
sives. Also, a £63,000 computerized 
entry system will control the locks on 
all bedrooms. 

Even the exterior is not quite the 
same as in 1984. Extra storeys have 
been built on the west side of the 
bunding to give it balance. 


Inside, there has been a major 
redevelopment in which little but the 
fine oak staircase remains Intact The 
reception and concierge areas on the 
ground floor have been moved to the 
front of the hotel, while the main 
bar — refurbished shortly before the 
bombing bat considered by many at 
the time to be out of keeping with the 
rest of the interior — has been rebuilt 
in dark mahogany. 

Throughout, there is a strong 
Victorian feel to the decor with the 
furniture, carpets and fabrics coming 
from British manufacturers. 

Perhaps the biggest change is on 
the lower ground floor, which for- 
merly housed the Grand's vast kitch- 
ens. Half of it has been turned into a 
leisure area with a swimming pool, 
sauna, solarium and beauty salon; tire 
remainder has become the Midnight 
Bines nightclub. 

By last night, Mr Baker and his 
160 staff were working flat ont to be 
ready to welcome tire first guests. 


Workmen were patting the finishing 
touches to the cloakrooms but they 
were expected to be ready by this 
morning. 

Mr Baker added: “I think the hotel 
is very much better than it was before. 
It's a magnificent hotel Fm sure it 
will turn ont to be one of the great 
British hotels." 

Although the renovated building 
does not have a plaque as a reminder 
of the bombing, the incident has not 
been totally forgotten. Later this year, 
De Vere plans to hold a charity ball at 
the Grand as a tribute to the 
emergency services who worked un- 
ceasingly during that dramatic night 

MrNorman Tebbrt, Conservative 
Party chairman, who was trapped In 
nibble after the explosion, and whose 
wife was severiy disabled by her 
injuries, has been invited. 

None of the party's hierarchy will 
be present next week, however, when 
a flypast by Concorde will mark tire 
official opening.

Nature Notes 


Most of the swifts have gone, 
and the rest are about to leave: 
one evening they are hurtling 
past the roofs where they nested, 
screaming wildly, and the next 
morning the sky is empty and 
silent 

On the coast more wading 
birds are coming down from the 
north. Golden plover are arriv- 
ing from the Scottish moors, 
some still in their glittering 
yellow summer plumage. Cur- 
lew-sandpipers. which are small 
waders with a slightly curved 
bill like a curlew’s, have flown 
from the Arctic tundra: at the 
moment, most of these are 
young birds, only a few months 
old. 

Wild buddleia is in bloom, 
and attracts many butterflies 
and other insects- A common 
ground plant is the yellow 
tormentiL rather like the 
cinquefoil but with only, four 
petals. 

Ivy-leaves toadflax casca des 
down moist wails. Heather is in 
full flower, and on the bilberries 
that often grow amongst it the 
fruit is plump and juicy. 

Winged ants are emerging 
from anthills, the males leading 
the females, and both sexes rise 
in thick clouds on their nuptial 
flight Ponds are full of green 
algae floating near the surface; 
fish swim deeper,* where the 
water is still dear. DJM

Le tter from Warsaw 

A summer purge 
on the smugglers 


Summer is the season of 
frontier warfare in ihe War- 
saw Pact and this year ihe 
skirmishing is particularly 
venomous. 

With the zeal of their 
breed, customs officers in 
Romania and Czechoslovak- 
ia have been opening cases, 
unscrewing bonnets and dis- 
mantling tooth paste tubes in 
an effort to stop cross border 
black marketeering by other 
Soviet Bloc tourists. 

The following scene was 
recently reported in the Pol- 
ish press. A Polish mother 
passing through a Czecho- 
slovak customs control was 
ordered to lake off her son's 
shoes saying that no child- 
ren's footwear was allowed 
out of Czechoslovakia. The 
child screamed, obviously 
not understanding the strange 
habits of adults. Somebody 
lent the mother a pair of old 
slippers so that the child 
would not have to walk home 
in his socks. Polish customs 
officers working in the same 
shed watched the scene word- 
lessly. They waited until a 
Czech car arrived from Po- 
land with brand new tyres 
that had undoubtedly been 
bought in Poland, asked po- 
litely how much the tyres had 
cost and when the driver 
failed to supply a satisfactory 
explanation, they removed 
the tyres and propped up the 
car on the Polish side of the 
border. 

And these are allies? Tour- 
ists. travelling to other east 
European countries, often 
have to pul up with very tight 
currency restrictions. They 
therefore do a bit of business 
on the side. East Germans 
take bicycles to Hungary, 
Poles lake jeans lo the Soviet 
Union. Hungarians take cof- 
fee to Poland and everybody 
takes Kent cigarettes to 
Romania, and somehow 
summer holidays become 
more affordable. This year 
there has been a crackdown 
and the main victims seem to 
be Poles, partly because they 
are the most business- 
minded tourists, partly be- 
cause it is easier for them to 
traveL 

The Hungarians are de- 
manding that Polish tourists 
show that they have a certain 
amount of currency for each 


person per day when m 
transit and the Czecho- 
slovaks want each Pole to 
draw up a written list of ail 
valuable objects. Bui what is 
valuable? The terms are kept 
deliberately elastic: radios, 
tape-recorders, cameras, elec- 
tric shavers, even expensive 
looking l3cy underwear have 
come under suspicion. 

What comes in, must go 
out there must be no back 
street dealing. 

East Germany has always 
been tough on Polish tourists. 
This is mainly because of ihe 
large number of Polish 
“gasiarbeiter" in East Ger- 
many and the relative ease 
with which Poles can travel to 
West Berlin. 

Tourists, but also black 
market speculators, come 
back loaded with fruit, choc- 
olate and clothing that can 
later be sold profitably in 
Poland. 

From East Berlin to ihe 
Polish border is a very short 
trip but the East German 
baggage checks give it the air 
of a journey into the heart of 
the dark conti nenL 

Romania, however, has 
gone the funhest. Tourists 
have to pay a large dollars 
surety on all valuables taken 
into the country. 

It is a fact that the black 
market on the communist 
seaside, above all in Romania 
and Bulgaria, enjoys a boom 
in ihe summer. But the main 
effect of the crackdown is io 
pauperize ordinary tourists 
rather than hit at the bijtiime 
dealers. The real profiteer* 
are crooked money changers 
who travel to Bulgarian re- 
sorts to fleece West Germans, 
and hard currency prostitutes 
who travel from W arsaw and 
East Berlin to work the beach 
hotels of the Black Sea. It is 
almost impossible to slop this 
trade. 

Polish customs officers can 
work off some of the national 
frustration by being extra- 
vigilant against Yugoslavs 
who. in a disturbing com- 
ment on the slate of the 
native economy, have dis- 
covered that buying cheap in 
Poland and selling dear ai 
home can produce a tidy 
profiL

at Chloride 

The Chloride shareholders 
action group sprang to the 
attack yesterday after reports 
that the company is dose to 
selling its controlling stake in 
Chloride India. 

Dr Maurice Gfllibrand, the 
chairman of the group and -a 
former Chloride research 
■ chief said: “The jewel in the 
crown of Chloride should not 
be sold without the full 
endorsement of shareholders 
at an extraordinary general I 
meeting. i 

**We are very anxious that 
shareholders should have a 
full disclosure of fern about 
any disposal." 

Dr Gfllibrand las been a 
persistent critic of the 
company's management but 
last month failed to obtain a 
seat on the board. 

Cast year Chloride made 
pretax profits of £0.5 million 
and reduced its net borrow: 
bigs to £25 million. 

‘Historic’ cut 
in US taxes 

The most radical overhaul 
of the United States tricorne 
tax system in a generation has 
cleared a House and Senate 
tax conference committee, 
and was sent on for expected 
passage by Congress next 
month.' 

The ‘ committee approved 
legislation making thousands 
of changes in income tax law. 
The legislation aits income 
tax rates for individuals and 
corporations to their lowest 
since the Second World War, 
and takes about six nuQfon 
working poor off the tax rolls.. 

President Reagan, on holi- 
day at Santa Barbara. Califor- 
nia, described the reform as 
"an historic achievement.” 

Malawi 

devalues 

Malawi yesterday devalued 
by 10 percent its currency, the 
Kwacha, which is pegged 
against a basket of western 
currencies. It said the move 
was a bid to keep exports of 
tea, sugar and conee compet- 
itive on the world markets. 

Tesco wins 

Tesco Stores has won a 
planning appeal to build a 
75,000 sq ft superstore at 
Hatfield, Hertfordshire. A 
Tesco outlet, there will be 
closed but the new store, 
expected to employ 400 peo- 
ple. will bring a net gain of 270 
jobs.

Oil price ‘should 
stay at $15 for 
next 18 months’ 


By David Young, Energy Correspondent 


The world oil prices should 
be sustained at the $ 1 5 a barrel 
level for the next 18 months as 
members of the 
Organizationof Petroleum 
Exporting Countries absorb 
the effect of their price war on 
.their current account deficits, 
according to die latest world 
investment review by Philips 
& Drew, the broker. 

. The review says that the 
Opec accord- appears to be 
solidly based, and that the past 
month's evidence suggests 
that the Arab Gulf producers 
have tacitly abandoned ibeir 
strategy of raising market 
share at all costs. 

“Thai strategy may weD be 
seen by. the Gulf states as too 
dangerous, both politically 
and financially," says Philips 
& Drew. . 

“At the same time the other 
Opec members, after their 
1986 nightmare, now seem to 
be be in the mood to make 
whatever sacrifices are needed 
to restore order to the oil 
market. Thus there is a good 
chance that further arrange- 
ments will be made to curb 
Opec output after the present 
accord expires at the end of 
October. 

“The accord came when 
almost all participants in the 
oil market were agreed that a 
fun her collapse in oD prices 
would be in no one's interest." 

Philips & Drew adds: “The 


oil producers were suffering. 
The Opec current account 
deficit is likely to widen from 
513 billion in 1985 lo $55 
billion this year. A weaker 
price profile would result in an 
even more disastrous 
deterioration in Opec’s collec- 
tive current account. 

"Industrial countries like 
Germany and Japan, seem- 
ingly the major beneficiaries 
ofloweroTl prices; found their 
export industries threatened 
by a falling US dollar, itself 
induced in part by lower oil 
prices, and by dislocations to 
trade in oil producing 
countries.” 

The: British oil exploration 
industry has been moire badly 
hit by the fell in oil prices than 
its European counterparts, 
according to a survey by 
Cline, the indepen- 
mdustry consultancy. 

Its figures show that 
exploration, development and 
appraisal drilling in Britain 
each fell by 33 per cent in the 
second quarter of this year 
compared - with the 
corresponding period last 
year. 

In Norway exploration 
drilling fell by 25 per cent, but 
development drilling in- 
creased, while there was a . 
surge of exploration drilling in 
the Netherlands and Ireland. 

-Mr Geoff Cull, managing 
director of Gaffney Cline's 


European operations, said: 
“The downturn in drilling 
activity offshore the UK was 
not unexpected. The majority 
of companies operating in the 
North Sea have announced 
-severe budget cuts and the 
only uncertainty was the geo- 
graphical regions in which 
these cuts would be most 
severe. 

“It is significant that 
exploration drilling cuts are 
evident in the more hostile 
areas of the continental shelf 
rather than in areas of 
comparatively shallow water 
such as the Netherlands. 

“it is too early to say if the 
decline in Britain will con- 
tinue or if the derisions taken 
at the meeting of Opec will 
affect activity in the short 
term." 

Exploration drilling at 
present is being carried out 
with a view to production in 
the next decade, according to 
the Department , of Energy in 
the 10th licensing round 
announcement. 

Mr Cull added: “This feet 
will undoubtedly encourage 
companies with sufficient 
cash flow to maintain explora- 
tion drilling programmes in 
the near future. 

“Another positive aspect of 
the development of the UK oil 
and gas reserves is that there is 
now more gas under develop- 
ment than since the end of 
1973."

Rolls and BA face Elders bid 
criticism from US decision 

By Our Industrial Staff on way 

RoBs-Royce and British prevent it offering its own c ~„ 

Airwavs. which are to follow enaines if thev were in the *** u ® r Lli y ° CM1 


RoBs-Royce and British 
Airways, which are to follow 
British Gas into the public 
sector and raise more than £1 
-billion for the Treasury, are 
expected to shrug-off adverse 
comments from the .United 
States and. continue their drive 
towards profitability, . . 

The engine maker is ex- 
pected to be, criticized by 
General Electric, its American 
partner in -a ..joint .engine 
project, for offering a compet- 
itive engine for use in the 
Boeing 747s ordered by Brit- 
ish Airways las ft week. 

GE had offered as an alter- 
native the engine it is jointly 
developing with Rolls-Royce 
and is reported to be annoyed 
that Rolls-Royce has uprated 
one of its own designs to 
compete with the new engine. 

The RoUs-Roycer says its 
agreement was not to compete 
with engines of the same 
physical size as the joint 
project, but that did not 


prevent it offering its own 
engines if they were in the 
same power band. 

Rolls-Royce has said that ft 
sees no reason why GE should 
be upset and no reason why 
the joint project should be 
jeopardized. 

-However, in the United 
Slates there is a feeling that . 
Rolls won the- £600 million I 
order from British Airways 
because of Government , 
interference. % • 

Although British Airways is < 
due to reveal pretax profits for I 
the first quarter Of the present 
financial year, which wiD 
show revenue more than 
halved compared to the same 
period last year, its long-term 
prospects and its announce- 
ment to renew its fleet of 747s 
are expected to create a more 
favourable dimate for its 
privatization. 

The BA order also makes it 
likely that-Rolls will come to 
the stock market at about the 
same -lime. 


Chinese funding changes 


By Our City staff 


The Chinese Government is 
proposing to improve the 
funding of joint ventures; the 
official Xinh ua news agency 
said at the weekend. 

From next year funding for 
Si no-foreign ventures will be 
incorporated into the national 
credit plan and the options for 
obtaining credit will be 
expanded. 

The Bank of China vice 
president, Yang Huiqiu, said 
that the central bank will be 
able to grant special or tem- 
porary credit or use current 


deposit overdrafts, foreign 
trade credit and long and 
medium-term loans for for- 
eign enterprises.Priority 
would be given to projects 
which import technology, ex- ! 
pon products or substitute 
Chinese goods for imports. 

One of the biggest US 
manufacturing investments in 
C hina, the $50 million Peking 
Jeep Corporation plant, has 
been shut down fra* the past 
two months because of a lack 
of foreign exchange to import 
parts: 


Both Elders IXL nod AHfcd- 
Lyons yesterday expressed 
surprise at reports that Mr 
Pan! Chanson, the Secretary 
of State for Trade and In- 
dustry, will this week give his 
decision on the Monopolies 
and Mergers Commission re-' 
port into Elders £1.8 bfllion ; 
bid. 

Mr Christopher Roshler, at 
H01 Samuel, Elders merchant 
bank advisors, said he would 
net expect the decision for at 
least another week, - 

He added: “We have had no 
indication yet" Mr John El- 
liott chairman of Elders, is 
i not expected in Britain until 
! the beginning of next month. 

The Commission's report i 
was delivered to Mr 
Chaunoo's office this month 
and is widely believed to give 
the bid for Allied-Lyons the 
go-ahead although it is as- 
sumed that conditions will be 
included relating to the 

financing . 

It was the highly geared 
debt-financing aspect of the 
proposed takeover which led 
to foe referral. 

Mr John Denies, finance 
director at Allied-Lyons, said 
he would be snrptsed at such a 
quick announcement. 

AlUed-Lyons shares last 
week gained 28p to 335p, well 
up on the 255p value of the 
first bid. 

In Canada, the coot hear- 
ings which will deride the 
outcome of Allied-Lyons battle 
to acquire the liquor business 
of Hiram- Walker are dne to 
start on September 29 and win 
last at least two weeks. 


Pteasurama, the fast-grow- 
ing leisure group which is now 
one of Britain's top six pack- 
age holiday companies, is 
joining a marketing con- 
sortium which in the autumn 
will break new ground in 
promoting packaged English 
holidays. 

A brochure launch to attract 
tourists to 13 cities, most of 
them at the heart of conurba- 
tions best known for their 
“smokestack" industries, is 
planned for the end of next 
month by the group. 

While all the dtks have 
some industrial background, 
the attractions which mil be 
promoted range from concerts 
and theatre to shopping as 
well as their heritage, all 
aimed at prompting holiday- 
makers to sample places 
which until now they would 
seldom have considered for a 
leisure break. 

Mr Alan Goodenough, 
managing director of 
Pleasanuna's holidays di- 
vision, said: "The unusual 
nature of this venture appears 


Derek Harris, Industrial Editor 

to present a problem to a tour 
operator, but it could be 
precisely that which will prove 
the endearing feature of it, 
attracting people by its 
novelty." 

One destination is Man- 
chester, which wiD be pro- 
moted largely on its industrial 
heritage, exploring its cotton 
and wearing traditions. 

The consortium, called the 
English Cities Marketing 
Group, is an unusual depar- 
ture for the British tourist 
industry which, despite losing 
so much trade to the increas- 
ingly popular foreign package 
holidays, has seen few at- 
tempts at collaborative 
marketing among resorts and 
nothing on the scale of the new 
consortium. 

The English Tourist Board 
has switched cash resources 
from smne projects to back the 
consortium, matching the 
cities' contributions pound for 
pound. Total funding for the 
marketing push at present 
stands at £250,000, but the 


number of participating cities 
could grow. 

The consortium includes 
Birmingham, Bradford, Cov- 
entry, Leeds, Leicester, Liver- 
pool, Newcastle upon Tyne, 
Nottingham, Plymouth, Ports- 
mouth, Southampton and 
Stoke-on-Trent. Sheffield and 
Hull are other likely can- 
didates. 

The cities' programme will 
cater for travel by coach, rail 
and independently by car. 
Prices, based mi using some of 
the big chain hotels in the 
three and four-star category, 
will (excluding travel) begin at 
£19 a night. Including foil 
breakfast, and the main target 
will be the short stay market. 

The initiative has been wel- 
comed by Lord Young, Sec- 
retary of State for 
Employment, because of its 
potential for job creation and 
producing economic benefits 
in areas away frmn established 
tourism destinations. 

He believes that a flourish- 
ing tourism industry in a city 
means better leisure facilities. 


Cut-price cement rejected 


The precast concrete in- 
dustry has rejected 1 million 
tonnes of cut-price Greek 
cement, reportedly en route lo 
Britain. 

Several shipments of ce- 
ment have been sent by 
Greece to Britain and brokers 
have been attempting to find 
customers by undercutting 
British cement prices. Greece 
can offer cheap cement be- 


South Korea 
to cut debt 

South Korea's outstanding 
foreign debt was S46.S billion 
at the end of April against 
$46.7 billion at the end of 
1985. It now plans to reduce 
substantially the $48.1 billion 
target for foreign borrowing by 
the end of the year, according 
to government sources. 

The new figures have led to 
many economists saying that 
the revised projection for a 9 
per cent growth in the econ- 
omy is too conservative. 


By Out Industrial Staff 

cause its works have been 
using cheap coal, often from 
South Africa, to fire the kilns. 

The big cement users, how- 
ever. have doubts about the

New fears 
on Brazil’s 
coffee 
harvest 

By Richard Lander 

The international coffee 
markets are on full alert this 
week as they await a new 
estimate of the drought-dam- 
aged crop in Brazil, foe 
world's biggest producing 
country. 

Fears about the state of foe 
Brazilian crop, which have 
waxed and waned over foe 
past few months, were raised 
again by Friday’s Reuters 
report in which Senhor Paulo 
Graciano. president of foe 
Brazilian Coffee Institute, was 
reported as saving foal 
drought damage was much 
bigger than previously 
expected. 

Senhor Graciano. who had 
just returned from a tour of 
the country ’s growing regions, 
declined to estimate foe sizcot 
the 1986-87 crop, but he said 
that it would be lower than foe 
May estimate of 14.7 million 
bags. 

The new forecast is ex- 
pected to be made this week, 
after which Senhor Graciano 
will decide whether Brazil will 
change its plans to export 14 
million bags this year. He also 
indicated thaL next year's har- 
vest is likely to be affected. 

The report had an immedi- 
ate effect on the coffee mar- 
kets. sending London 
November future prices £90 
higher to £1.900 a tonne. The 
rally continued in New York, 
where December coffee rose 
more than S cents at one stage 
to 1 76.50 amts a lb. 

Analysts expect further 
gains this week as speculators 
who sold coffee short seek to 
cover their commitments, and 
other investors return to the 
market after sitting on the 
sidelines in the absence of 
firm news from Brazil. “The 
fact that Graciano gave no 
figures on the crop will keep 
people interested." said Mr 
Paul Prescott, of the Drexel 
Burnham Lambert trading 
house in London. 


Three-year 
pay deal for 
exhibitions 

By Our Industrial Staff 

A new foree-vear wage and 
working agreement has just 
been signed between foe Brit- 
ish Exhibition Contractors 
Association and the trade 
unions in the industry. 

It is seen as a move to dispel 
suggestions that our ex- 
hibitions are still dogged by a 
poor industrial relations 
record, leading to organisers 
choosing foreign venues for 
traditional British exhibitions. 

The Association said: 
“Both foe increased com- 
petition from overseas con- 
tractors and foe moving of 
UK exhibitions to foreign 
venues have been based — so it 
is claimed — on the unstable 
relationship between employ- 
ers and foe unions. This claim 
is totally false. 


Rocco Forte looks overseas for growth 


By Cliff Feltham 


Even foe heir to one of foe 
largest hotel and catering 
empires in foe world does not 
spend £200 million every day. 

Bet foe champagne corks 
stayed firmly corked when. Mr 
Rocco- Forte completed his 
first major deal since taking 
over as chief executive of 
Trosthonse. Forte force years 
ago. 

In foe face of stiff com- 
petition, be successfully bid 
for an assortment of roadside 
restaurants, inns, and hotels 
from Hanson Trust represent- 
ing part of the Imperial Group 
business. 

But Mr Forte maintains a 
matter-of-fact air about the 
deal and plays down the 
impression that the ac- 
quisition marks the start of a 
new aggressive ’era at 
Trusfooase Forte. 

; “There has been no big 
change in the way foe business 
is ran. It is more of a 
transition," be says. But he 
added quickly: “Of course, I 
was pleased the deal went 
through because it broadens 
our horizons. Also, because I 
think some people outside may 
have felt that we were not quite, 
as active as we might have 
been, this acquisition has cer- 
tainly improved our image." 

He has a hard act to follow. 
City folk still talk in awe of the 


famous deal polled off by his 
lather 10 years ago when he 
paid £27 million to foe cash 
hungry' JXyons group for 35 
hotels and promptly recouped 
£11 million within a year by 
cutting costs. 

But - Rocco knows that 
opportunities like that occur 
once in a lifetime. And he is 
well aware that, much like the 
way football dobs mark np foe 
cost of a player for sale when 
foe big dubs show interest, foe 
price usually goes up when 
Trustbouse Forte arrives on 
the scene. 

But Rocco at 41 has foe 
advantage of teaming the 
trade at first hand from one of 
the masters. He frankly ad- 
mits that be seeks foe advice 
of Lord Forte on lots of things. 

“We see a lot of each other, 
inside and ontside the office. 
He still remains intensely 
interested in foe business, 
every part of it. There is no 
great difference in our outlook 
or philosophy." 

They will have certainly put 
their heads together this year 
to consider the impact of foe 
sharp fon in the number of 
American tourists which cost 
Trustbouse Forte between £4 
million and £5 million in foe 
opening half. 

Rocco admits the drop in 
room bookings caused by 



Rocco Forte: still asks his 
father for advice. 

cancellations . following the 
■Libya raid was bod. Bat he 
points out that the decline 
looked worse because of the 
exceptional summer m 1985. 
Compared with 1984 the 
performance was not too bad. 
And things are getting better. 

Rocco has been groomed to 
succeed his father since he 
first worked hi foe business as 
a teenager. There were times 
when be wondered if foe 
dynasty would survive; as he 
worked alongside his father to 
stave off a takeover bid from 
Allied Breweries (now Allied- 

Lyons) in 1971, living through 
the desperate days when the 
family put everything in hock 
to raise enough cash to boy 


their own shares and keep 
them out of foe enemy's hands. 

Bat it is to foe younger 
generation that foe future 
development of foe business 
now rests. 

Rocco has clear ideas of 
where he wants to direct 
Trustbouse Forte - If it is to be 
a truly multi-national hotel 
company then it must generate 
a greater proportion of its 
profits from overseas. 

He says : "A national group 
of hotels will not succeed 
against major international 
chains unless it has a wide 
spread of properties giving it a 
better distribution so that ft is 
less prone to difficulties hi any 
one area." 

■The .United States remains 
the obvious target and Rocco is 
focusing on building up the 
TraveLodge motel chain, hiv- 
ing off some of the better 
outlets into the more up mar- 
ket Viscounts “to help gel foe 
Trust house Forte name more 
recognised throng hoot the 
States." The plan .is to in- 
crease the 2,500 rooms at 
present to 4,000 by the end of 
the year but foe market re- 
mains h uge . 

At home, foe group has been 
unloading its hotels at the 

bottom end of the market “We 
don't want any hotels below 
three-star in the future," says 
Rocco. 


He is also pushing ahead 
with plans to build family 
priced accommodation next to 
the Little Chef roadside res- 
taurants. He has 250 Little 
Chefs and sees scope for 
1 , 000 . 

Another idea bring exam- 
ined is breaking into the high 
street, perhaps through 
expanding foe Julie’s Panfry 
outlets while the acquisition of 
the 87 Imperial taverns from 
Hanson - trading under the 
Harvesters and Falstaff ban- 
ner -may be used to attack foe 
Berni steak bar market 

Rocco remains Him on one 
issue. Trustbouse Forte has no 
intention of letting foe Savoy 
off the book. It still thinks ft 
can do a better job than foe 
present management and re- 
jects the notion that foe Forte 
family has been motivated by 
emotion rather than commer- 
cial logic in pursuing its goal 
so relentlessly. 

“My father has gone into 
this on sound business rea- 
sons. If there are emotional 
reasons they are in seeing one 
of foe country's finest assets 
being slowly allowed to 
distingrate. We went into foe 
Savoy because foe group is foe 
one remaining first class hotel 
business left in the world. We 
could do so much with the 
name, and improve its 
reputation."

Unit trust capitalism 
soars in popularity 


By Carol Ferguson 

The concept of popular 
capitalism is bu3i on the 
premise that the world is full 
*of individuals ready 1o follow 
hot tips and invest directly in 
stocks and shares. 

While it is undoubtedly the 
case that the private share- 
holder is making something 
of a comdback after years or 
decline, direct investment in 
the stock market is still very 
much a minority sport. A 
recent Stock Exchange survey 
estimated that 12 per cent of 
the adult population (5 mil- 
lion) are Shareholders. 

It is also rather an 
upmarket activity. 42 per 
cent fall into social grades A 
or B (senior white-collar 
workers, professionals and 
managers), a group Much 
comprises only 17 per cent of 
the population as a whole. 
Shareholders are also more 
likely to men (58 per cent) 
and middle aged or elderly 
(43 per cent are aged 55 or 
over). 

While it is true that direct 
investment in shares is grow- 
ing in popularity, of at least 
equal significance has been 
the recent burgeoning of the 
unit trust movement 
Unit trust investment 
tends on the whole to be 
short-term money. It is part 
of the folklore that private 
investors pile into the market 
at the top and bail out at the 
bottom. And this has been 
especially true of unit trust 
holders. 

Unit trust sales have been 
growing at an average rate of 
50 per cent a year since 1981. 
Life and pension funds in 
contrast have been growing at 
only 4 per cent a year and 
building society net inflows 
have been growing at 18 per 
cent 

This extraordinary rise in 
the popularity of unit trusts 
accelerated in the first half of 
this year. Net sales in the six 
months to June 30 were £ 2. 5 
billion, nearly equal to the 
whole ofl 985*5 sales. 

It is not dear how many 
individuals own unit trusts. 
There are 3 million unit trust 
accounts, but many holders 
have more than one account

The Unit Trust Associ- 
ation estimates that there are 
probably around 1 million 
individual holders, of which 
75 per cent are male and 70 
per cent are over 55. 

Much of the new unit trust 
investment has been at the 
expense of the building soci- 
eties. which have been losing 
a lot of their appeal as interest 
rates have come down. Mr 
Fenn-Smrtiv chairman of the 
Unit Trust Association re- 
ported that in both May and 
June unit trust net new 
investment figures exceeded 
building society net receipts. 

However, much of the 
growth has been due to efforts 
of the life insurance com- 
panies who have been active 
in selling unit trusts, both in 
the foiro of unit-linked bonds 
and as direct investments. 

Abolition of tax relief on 
premiums on life assurance 
policies (LAPR) in 1984 and 
the consequent decline in the 
attractions of endowment 
policies forced the insurance 
companies to devise new 
products to offer their clients. 


The rising, stock market 
made unit trusts a dear 
favourite and many of those 
who would traditionally have 
bought endowment policies 
now prefer to buy unit-linked 
products or even straight 
units. 

And the insurance com- 
panies themselves have seen 
their in-house unit trusts as 
good investments for their 
own fends as an alternative 
to shares. There can be tax 
advantages in investing pre- 
mium income from endow- 
ment policies, which would 
traditionally have been in- 
vested directly in shares, into 
a unit trusts vehicle instead. 

Of £7-5 billion of net unit 
trust sales in 1985, an es- 
timated £1-3 billion was 
linked to life arid pension 
business leaving £12 billion, 
as direct holdings. While no 
figures are available, it is 
likely that the single pre- 
mium unit-linked bond, 
which can be withdrawn as 
easily as a direct holding, 
forms only a small propor- 
tion. The bulk is contractual 


savings and insurance com- 
pany investments in in-house 
trusts. . . 

Mr Richard Dmgwail- 
Smith. economist at Wood 
Mackenzie. the 

broker.belicves that fuelling 
the equity market with 
shorter term savings in the 
form of unit trusts isa slightly 
worrying trend. 

“Unit-linked business may 
be closer to the 
Government’s idea of 
people’s capitalism," he says. 
“But reliance on short-term 
inflows does leave the equity 
market vulnerable to any 
downturn - in popular 
confidence". 

But if it is the case that a 
significant proportion of new 
sales are to insurance com- 
panies, and a large proportion 
is linked to contractual sav- 
ings, then the weight of short- 
term money waiting to flee 
the market, exacerbating a 
downturn, may not be as 
great as the bare figures 
would imply. 

What is dear is that unit 
trust sales of one sort or 
another have to some extent 
been sustaining institutional 
cash flow and demand for 
securities. In so far as de- 
mand for units is the result of 
contractual savings and 
insurance companies' own 
investment, it will remain a 
force. To the extent that it is 
short-term private money, it 
will grow only for as long as 
the stock market is strong: 

Mr Nathan Parnaby, 
investment manager at the 
Standard Life, is positive 
about the outlook for the 
equity market. He believes 
that it will make significant 
progress in the next six 
months. 

But next year, after big 
bang, there will be plenty of 
competing banks, building 
societies, unit trust managers 
and other financial inter- 
mediaries able to compete 
with the insurance com- 
panies, cold calling on the 
doorstep to sell their wares. 
They must hope that there 
will continue to be a big 
appetite on the part of the 
public for direct unit trust 
ownership: 


Pension cash flows become a trickle 


The rate of gro w th of life 
id pension cash flow, has 
slowed dramatically. Between 
1981 and 1985, itrose by only 
4 per cent a year from £13.2 
btflioD to £15.4 bflfioo. This 
; been - doe to various 
factors, mdudmg die abo- 
lition of LAPS, reducing the 
attractions of endowment 
assurance, and the strong 
performance of the equity 
market which has caused 
many pension schemes to be 
overfunded. 

The Government Introduced 
measures in die last Badge! to 
ensure that pension fund sur- 
pluses were reduced. Bat dm 


pensions industry had afready 
started to reduce contributions 
and Increase benefits to 
p ens i on e rs. Otherwise,, it is 
believed, the life ' companies* 
1985 cash flows tjrnM': have; 
been as much as £1.5 MDioa • 
higher than they were. 

In the last 20 years, indeed 
over any extended period,, 
equities hare risen at about 5 
per cent a year over the rate of 
inflation. Actuaries set the 
level of cootribntians depend- 
ing on the outlook for hrflation 
and different types of invest- 
ment. 

Daring die years of 
inflation in the late 1971 


equities grew more slowly than 
inflation. Negative real rates 
of retina meant that pension 
fond contributions had to be 
Jacked up, and the life 
! companies’ net inflows rose to 
as mochas 25 per cent offhbds. 
under management. 

Low inflation and a strong 
equity market have caused the 
rate of inflow to fell to only 6 
per cent of . funds under 
management, not much more 
than die yield on die insurance 
companies* portfolios. 

Net inflows are like to stay 
down for some time, not least 
because- actuaries are now 


making -more optimistic 
assumptions about fixture rates 
of return. - - 

According to * Mr. Jim 
McCaughan, who is 
an actuary and fund manager 
at Phillips & Drew Fond 
Management, ac- 

tuaries are now looking at 
ratesofretmuofl te 3 per cent 
over prices c om p ar ed with 0 to 1 
per cent in the late 1970s. ; 

The physical manifestation 
of this is the number of 
companies announcing 
contribution holidays or re- 
duced contributions, and m- 
. creased benefits.

Another 
victory 
for gloom 
and doom 

From Maxwell Newton 
New York 

The third quarter has 
started very Inaaspitionsly 
with indnstrfal- output down 
0.1 percent in July, taking the 
revised level back to that of 
April 1985. 

Retail sales fell by 04 per 
cent in July, mainly beat use of 
weak motor sales, mostly due 
to a deep-seated failure by 
General Motors to improve its 
product line. Its models are 
now rather elderly is design 
and appearance and demand 
huge infusions of credit from 
the corporation's Croesus-rich 
GMAC subsidiary, to keep 
sales moving. Even so. Gen- 
eral Motors has more than 100 
days’productioa 
stockpOetLcompared with the 

indastry norm of €5 days and 
like the rest of fee US motor 
industry wiU have te slash 
third quarter production 
(dans. 

The “devaluation" of the 
(foliar has been so ineffective 
tint in July tire annual rate of 
imported vehicles had reached 
33 million. American car 
manufacturers have plans to 
increase this number substan- 
tially as they locate more 
prodoefion plants, in -Taiwan, 
Korea and Mexico, —•where 
they are being joined by 
Japanese manufacturers who 
are now finding that the strong 
yen has pushed wages too high 
The Federal government 
has nationalized yet another 
bank, the First Bank of Okla- 
homa, giving the bankrupt 
institution $130 mfllfoa cash 
in return for a continuing 
share. Officials from the Fed 
are now a permanent fixture in 
most leading banks in the 
United States. There is cer- 
tainly a team of them burrow- 
ing into tire horrors at the 
Bulk of America, which-conld 
soon be a candidate for na- 
tionalization itself, to join the 
Continental Illinois and the 
First Bank of Oklahoma. 

Meanwhile, the - dollar 
coutinnes to weaken against 
the other leading currencies, 
reflecting growing , inter- 
national acceptance of. Unde 
Sam as a sort of mendicant 
unde, who cannot live on 
except through iafnaons of 
cash, drawn from the savings 
of tire world, often from coun- 
tries modi poorer than itself. 

Mr Pan! Vokker, Chairman 
of tire Federal Reserve Board, 
has been trying to get die 
Japanese and tire' Germans to 
co-operate- m - measures to 
stimulate import demand! But 
if the US trade deficit is to be 
dosed, Germany and- Japan 
combined woaULliave to raise 
their imports over the next two 
years more than twice as last 
as in 1983-1985. 

Meanwhile* m response to 
the evident weakness of the 
US economy, bond-yields have 
dropped sharply since the 
major Treasury auctions on 
Wednesday August 6 and 
Thursday August 7. The 10 
year note yiddhas fallen from 
tire 7.47 per rent level at the 
auction to 7:13 per ceqt and 
tire 30 year bond has fallen 
from the 7.63 per rent auction 
average yield to 7.28 per cent. 

The optimists in the Admin- 
istration who have been talk- 
ing of a “surge of growth" in 
tire second half of the year 
have been routed. The Fade- 
wood Committee which is 
trying to stitch together what 
looks likaa very anti-business 
and anti-growth tax “reform" 
has jnst had to abandon its 
latest plans- becanse tbe eco- 
nomic conditions have led to 
new estimates showing a $17 
bfllkis revenue shortfall fcom- 
ingap. . ■■ 

The President is gtoqg to 
have to talk fost'toftaaintain 
Republican Senate control in 
November. Many, thoughtful 
Republicans tirink the cause is 
already lost, due to .fire fed 
that the whole of tire interior of 
the nationrwfth'tite exception 
of the coastal states, is already 
in recession, often very serious 
recession. The President has 
consistently been misinformed 
about bow well things are 
going, in the economy hot by 
now even he most realize bow 
much danger be is in, , ' 

This was another week of 
defeat for Polly anna 
‘Y»nseosns" finii]ai^ and an- 
other- victory for gmom and 
doom.

Thrills and spills in store 
for third market investors 


The Unlisted Securities 
Martet has entered the period 
of .summer quiet and calm. 
Bui with less than 1.00 days U> 
the big bang, there is no 
holiday' period for” a Stock 
Exchange attempting to for- 
malize proposals for the third 
market against the back- 
ground of a legislative frame- 
work where the fine print has 
still to be hammered out. 

The rapid growth over the 
last four years of the over-the- 
counter market, which trades 
in stodcs -which are unquali- 
fied for either a lull fisting or 
tbeUSM, has caused a certain 
amount of concern about 
whether there was an adequate 
degree of protection for inves- 
tors . in "an., unregulated 
environment. The see of the 
market and the number of 
companies traded by lbe OTC 
dealers (boosted partly by the 
Business Expansion Scheme) 
has fenced the Stock. Exchange 
to act. 

In April this year, it an- 
nounced plans 10 set up a third 
market which would bring the 
OTC under its umbrella. 

The proposal to launch a 


third market was greeted with 
initial enthusiasm by aH par- 
ties. ranging from the Depart- 
ment of Trade and Industry to 
the OTC Practitioners' 
Committee. In principle, 
everyone believes that it is 
desirable that OTC companies 
should be traded m a rec- 
ognized securities market 
Discussions of the derailed 
proposals have, however, 
shown there to be a number of 
stumbling blocks. In particu- 
lar. the teeraingly arcane 
differentiation between an 
SRO and an RIE which is still 
undefined has proved to be a 
large obstacle. 

Most of the OTC traders are 
small and could probably only 
qualify for recognition- as an 
RIE and as such h is not yet 
dear whether they can trade 
under the umbrella of' the 
Stock Exchange which should 
be recognized as an SRO (or 
possibly as both an SRO and 

an RIE). 

It seems unfortunate that 
the timing of the proposal to 
set up the third market should 
have coincided with the 
changes in the legislative 


framework for the securities 
industry -which have effec- 
tively blocked the OTC trad-, 
ers from becoming members 
. of the Slock Exchange. 

The other large problem 
which the Stock Exchange, 
faced is what type of company 
would qualify for a third 
market listing. Under their 
draft proposals companies in- 
volved in overseas trading, 
property, investment and 
companies with less than one 
years trading record would all 
be excluded. 

- Unfortunately, this would 
also exclude many of the 
stocks already traded on the 
OTC and as such the original 
intention to bring these stodcs 
under the auspices of the 
Stock Exclrange would foiL 

The OTC traders last week 
announced their intention of 
setting up their own market. 

Mr Tony Prior of Prior 
Harwin. the chairman of this 
alternative exchange, states 
that the new market will have 
the most up-to-date electronic 
technology for bargain 
information and reporting 


(one area where some OTC 
dealers have attracted some 
criticism). 

The new market will com- 
ply with SIB requirements so 
that, it can operate as a 
recognized investment ex- 
change. The numbers 
subscribing to the new ex- 
change so for total 52 and 
include accountancy and legal 
firms as wen as OTC traders. 

Provided this new exchange 
qualifies as a recognized 
investment exchange, the 
problem of the uncontrolled 
OTC market will have been 
solved. 

Regulation alone, however, 
will not prevent thrills and 
spills for the mvester in these 
.young and small companies 
and the solution to the prob- 
lems of the OTC market will 
have been effected outside the 
Stock Exchange umbrella. 

Hardly an encouraging 
omen for the authorities.

view the question of a final at

CBI takes 
action on 
hoax calls 

By Our City Staff 

Hoax callers who daixn to 
have poisoned foodstuffs and 
toiletries are to face prosecu- 
tion, heavy fines and possible 
imprisonment, according to 
the Confederation of British 
Industry in a statement today. 
The CBI, says it has persuaded 
the Government to insert a 
clause in the Public Order Bill 
to toughen the law in this area. 

The legislation, which is 
now at the committee stage in 
the Lords, wDl make it a 
criminal offence to claim to 
have contaminated goods 
with the aim of causing finan- 
cial loss to retailera or manu- 
facturers. 

Hoax calls have cost in- 
dustry and commerce millions 
of pounds in lost business. 

Mr Kenneth Edwards, dep- j 
uty director general of the 
CBL says: ~ Previously the law 
was inadequate to cover such 
activity. The CBI has per- 
suaded the Government that 
the new clause should also 
apply to . electrical and 
pharmaceutical goods, as wen 
as food, drink and toiletries." 

In the past, CBI members 
have had to withdraw from 
sale products such as choc- 
olate bars, turkeys, packaged 
meats, oranges, shampoos and 
other toiletries, after hoax 
calls warning of 
contamination.

COMMENT 


Case for a blitz on 
unemployment 


There is no shortage of worry over 
unemployment as a social problem; 
not enough attention has been paid to 
it as a direct economic problem. 
Indeed, it is sometimes said, and more 
often thought, that long dole queues 
are necessary for sustained economic 
growth for the majority. The Govern- 
ment has unwittingly encouraged such 
thoughts by its entirely correct analy- 
sis that unemployment is a problem 
on its own, not soluble through 


They provide industry with necessary 
conditions for growth. Rather, other 
policies should be focused on putting 
people into jobs. 

There is no shortage of measures to 
improve the labour market, stimulate 
enterprise and persuade more io stay 
at home. Most, however, are long- 
term structural adjustments that are 
slow to build an effect For example, 
the profit-sharing scheme is aimed to 
be permanent so it must be designed 


monetary and fiscal management of modestly to avoid setting up new 
the economy. And those who oppose distortions. 


sound money policy give the same 
message by falsely implying that 
inflation and unemployment are 
alternatives. 

Now that inflation is on the run, 
unemployment is the prime remain- 
ing obstacle to economic health. The 
loss of tax revenues and the swelling 
cost of social security — not simply in 
unemployment benefit - are at the 


If the rate of job creation can be 
maintained as the bulge of school- 

leavers ends and the Job Start scheme 
helps those long out of work, the tide 
of rising unemployment will be 
reversed. But present policies are not 
enough to cut unemployment 
dramatically in the forseeable future. 

There is a case for supplementing 
long-term restructuring with a blitz of 


heart of the fiscal impasse. The cost of short-term policies over the next four 


special employment measures is hefty 
and looks permanent. Excessive local 
authority spending and enduring re- 
gional subsidies are also partly due to 
lack of jobs. 

Attempts to measure the total tax 
cost of having 2.5 million out of work, 
who might be in work, are political 
guesses. But it is probably worth at 
least eight pence off the rate of income 
tax or £10 billion a year of public 
works. 

On such a scale, consumers who are 
not producing are also an inflationary 
force. As earnings figures show, 
unemployment no longer damps wage 
rises. So monetary and fiscal policies 
have to be that much tighter. 

The waste of productive potential 
prevents the British economy — and 
most others in Europe — growing at a 
foster pace. Too often, even those who 
reject postwar notions of economic 
management put ft die other way 
round. Unemployment and low eco- 
nomic growth go together, especially 
when the available labour force is still 
expected to rise a further 550,000 
between this summer and 1 990. But to 
say that low economic growth causes 
unemployment implies that economic 


years — or over the next Parliament — 
to break the logjam. A succession of 
initiatives that are limited in advance 
in time and cash, carries the advan- 
tage that they can be more risky and 
dramatic. 

The defensive climate of manage- 
ment thinking needs to be changed, so 
that expansion in new projects is seen 
as the counterpart of job-shedding 
rationalization. Employers might en- 
joy National Insurance holidays if 
they add to their workforce from the 
dole queues. And profitable com- 
panies might then be liable to a stiff 
levy if they foil to take on more staff. 
A three-year moratorium on take- 
overs of profitable companies that do 
not guarantee more jobs could help. 
And how about Queens Awards for 
those who create jobs in Britain and 
an embargo on honours for those who 
do not.? 

On the spending side, the defence 
budget could be diverted to advance 
rather than delay warship orders. 
Livwpool-style partnerships with 
business might be used to give project 
grams to invest in the earning power 
of one depressed town after another.

unemployment keeps taxes high and 
absorbs available spending!. Low 
growth causes unemployment, but 
unemployment causes low growth. 
Thinking needs to shift to identify 
unemployment as the cause rather 
than die effect. 

That is not to say that tax and 
money policies should be reversed. 


Such measures can readily be 
dismissed as panic gimmickry, irrele- 
vant to the serious business of creating 
“real” jobs in a healthy economy. But 
there is much to be gained by such cal- 
culated risks.

“Earnings doubled over five years” 


Sir Colin Comess, chairman, reports: 

• 'An average annual growth in earnings per share ofl9% over five years 
has doubled corporate income whilst maintaining a consistently high 
return on capital employed' 

• 'Redland’s international spread is rightly perceived by investors to be 
one of its foremost attractions' 

• 'With a market capitalisation of around £1 billion and low gearing of 
25%, we are able to contemplate capital investments and acquisitions in 
a number of countries'

Bread accounts for 70 per 
cent of the turnover for all 
bakery products. Total sales 
value is around £2 billion a 
year. Although sliced while is 
taking a hammering, the Mid- 
lands .and the North, where 
sandwich consumption is 
higher are still big buyers. 

Euromonitor, in its Bakery 
Products Report for Britain, 
points our that new Govern- 
ment regulations concerning 
the purity of bread win be 
mainly concerned in ensuring 
that consistency in the 
description of different types 
ofbread ends the malpractice 
of simply dyeing, white bread 
and calling it brown. 

It will also emphasize what 
additives may be used.

GILT-EDGED 




Short-term balance favourable 


Last week's industrial 
production data showed a fall 
of 0 l 7 per cent between the 
first two quarters of this year. 

On the teas of growth _ra 
the remaining services, with 
part of the economy continu- 
ing at its recent rate of around 
2 p&centa year.tbiff suggests 
that the preliminary es- 
timates for real GDP, due to 
be published on Wednesday, 
will be broadly unchanged 
between the first and second 
quarters of calendar 1986. 

With unchanged real GDP, 
and an underlying rate of 
inflation of not much more 
than 4 per cent, nominal 
GDP itself will show only 
some 4 per cent yearly 
growth, very significantly be- 
low the 6% per cent objective 
for 1986-87 given in the 
Medium Term Financial 
Strategy last March. This 
follows subdued growth of 
per cent in the first 
quarter of calendar 19 86 at 
below last year’s MTFS 
objective of Sra per cent for 
1985-86. 

The latest CBI survey re- 
ported a weaker outlook, for 
orders. The underlying trend 
in unemployment also "re- 
mains upwards. Indeed, it 
accelerated in the first half of 
the year. There two in- 
dicators provide added ev- 
idence for the current 
shortfall in growth of real 
GDP which will be high- 
lighted on Wednesday. 

The Chancellor has consis- 
tently taken the position, and 
did. so again in his March 
B udget speech, that the 
MTFS “provides as firm a 
guarantee against inadequate 
money demand as it does 
against excessive money 
demand”. It is also- worth 
stressing that the Treasury's 
preferred monetary indicator, 
M0, is continuing to grow 


more slowly than the mid- 
point of its taigei range: 

•These developments 
should mean that the Chan- 
‘cellor is seriously considering 
some form of policy 
relaxation. 

In . die free of last 
Thursday's money supply 
data, which confirmed that 
sterling. M3 has grown by no 
less than 19 per cent over the 
last 12 months, this might 
seem a surprising conclusion. 
But. the Chancellor has 
repeatedly given good rea- 
sons for downgrading the 
importance of. the broad 
money measures at a time 
when real interest rates are so 
high and -when shon interest 
rates are above long rates. 

■ A more pressing concern 
for the Chancellor wfll un- 
doubtedly be the UK's deteri- 
orating balance of payments 
position. If oil prices main- 
lain their recent strength, the 
UK current account's move 
into deficit may be delayed 
until at least 1987. At 03 

S lices- of $10 and below, 
owever, the underlying po- 
sition would move into defi- 
cit this year, although for 
1986 as a whole a small 
overall surplus would result. 

This background win obvi- 
ously make policy relaxation 
seem more risky to the 
Chancellor but a consistent 
application of his frequently 
stated philosophy makes 
some measure of relaxation 
increasingly likely. 

Turning to the supply and 
demand of funds for the 
market, tight liquidity was 
clearly an important reason 
for the unexpectedly large 
fall-back in the gilt-edged 
market after its April peak. 
These pressures are now less 
acute. 

The latest published in- 


stitutional liquidity figures 
are for end-March. and show 
liquidity at an estimated 3% 
per cent of funds, some £3 
billion above what is prob- 
ably an effective minimum 
leveL But calls then outstand- 
ing were over £3 billion and 
so there was effectively little 
spare liquidity. 

We estimate that excess 
liquidity fell by about £1 
billion in the second quarter 
but has subsequently been 
buih up in the last six weeks 
to stand dose to its end- 
March level Further, calls 
outstanding are currently 
only half their end-March 
level. There are. however, the 
forthcoming issues by TSB 
and British Gas for which 
funds will be reserved. 

The authorities made good 
most of the underfunding in 
the month to mid-July. The 
immediate funding pressures 
are therefore not acute. Re- 
cent funding initiatives may 
herald a wish to get ahead so 
that there is no treed to push 
hard over the TSB issue in 
September. 

The dramatic worldwide 
bull phase in bond markets 
up to April was triggered by 
the sharp fell in oil prices. 
Although oil prices have yo- 
yoed since April commodity 
prices have in general contin- 
ued tofelL 

On the basis of 
commodities' use in the UK, 
including oil their average 
price has fallen 15 per cent 
over the last year and is more 
than a quarter below the peak 
in early 1985. Indeed, the 
July producer input price 
index fell a further 3.4 per 
cent in July so that it is now 
almost 10 per cent lower than 
a year ago. The weakness in 
non-oil commodity prices is 
unlikely to reverse sharply 


unless the cuttcih shortfall in 
the worldwide economic 
recovery is rapidly made 
good. 

The signs from the main 
business leading indicators in 
the larger economies are 
ambiguous. Economic 
growth may accelerate some- 
what but not sufficiently 
strongly to make up for the 
dip so far this year. Neither 
the leading indicator series 
nor the data for orders her- 
alds a large surge in output. 

Although narrow monetary 
growth has accelerated in, for 
example, the US and West 
Germany, the worldwide 
downward trend in inflation 
and inflationary expectations 
is likely to have caused a 
greater willingness to hold 
money among companies 
and individuals. 

’The response of Teal eco- 
nomic activity to accelerating 
real monetary growth and 
increased real economic 
activity is therefore likely to 
be more muted and more 
delayed than in periods when 
inflation was rising, such as 
the 1970s. 

Furthermore, real interest 
rates remain high; nominal 
rates have fallen less than 
published inflation in most 
countries this year. In very 
many cases, the return from 
holding interest bearing 
deposits is greater than that 
from stocks of goods. These 
are not the conditions for a 
sudden, sharp acceleration in 
economic activity. 

In conclusion, it will be a 
surprise if short-term interest 
rates abroad do not resume 
their fall before long. Against 
such a background, how will 
the gilt-edged market re- 
spond? The much larger 
correction in the UK since 
the April peak took place at a 


time when the opinion polls 
consistently showed a lead 
for the Labour Party. 

With a General Ejection 
within two years, the fears of 
rising public borrowing, 
higher inflation and re- 
directed investment plans 
have become more important 
for the market. Admittedly, 
overseas investors continued 
to be net purchasers of gilts in 
the last four months, buying 
more than £1 billion so far in 
this financial year. But this is 
likely to reflect the negative 
attractions of US treasuries as 
much ns the positive attrac- 
tions of UK gilts. 

Domestic funding and 
liquidity pressures are more 
favourable than at the 
market’s peak in April, but 
the forthcoming TSB and 
British Gas issues have a two- 
edged impact They will re- 
move liquidity from the 
market but the authorities 
have a vested interest in their 
success and hence will wish to 
avoid any damaging actions. 

Despite uncertainties for 
markets, especially the ster- 
ling foreign exchange market 
resulting from volatile oil 
prices and the unpredictable 
political outlook, the less 
buoyant world economic out- 
look raises hopes for a further 
round of interest cuts. 

The fact that the UK is 
fully sharing this weak eco- 
nomic performance, and that 
nominal GDP growth is fell- 
ing well short of the 
Government's preferred 
path, suggests in the near 
term that the balance for the 
gilt-edged market is on the 
favourable side.

and' interesting courses. The Institute has two colleges with excefent 
facilities, particularly the libraries with their special collections. Both 
colleges are In attractive settings with access to the South Downs and the 
sea. Students find this a good environment for learning and recreation. 
Brighton and London are easily accessible. There are opportunities for 
students to follow degree programmes and professional training, 
particularly for teaching. The following degree programmes are currently 
available;

ist Thursday A-levd candidates CfnHi»ntc hflVP failed Still be made offers during the ha 

noughout the land received iheir JtUdentS WHO nave IdllCU WBete - ..y 


Last Thursday A-levd candidates 
throughout the land received their 
results. 

I spent the morning at Peter Symonds 
College, a sixth-form institution in 
Hampshire, sitting with a careers adviser 
and careers teacher as they held instant 
counselling sessions with pupils. Fortu- 
nately. very few had foiled their exams 
but there were a number whose results 
were variations on their conditional 
offers. Given the uncertainties of entry to 
higher education this year, it meant that 
the state of suspense on acceptance or 
rejection would be prolonged for at least 
another week. 

Peter Symonds College sends about 75 
per ant of its sixth-form on to degree 
courses, with aJarge number of Oxbridge 
successes. It means that there are strong 
social as weD as academic pressures to 
get into higher education and the college 
goes to extensive lengths to collaborate 
with its local careers office to ensure that 
pupils are well advised during this 
crucial period. 

“For students who have just missed 
their required grades by a point or two it 
is still very likely that they will be 
accepted." said Sue Rogers, the local 
careers adviser, who will be in the college 
virtually non-stop until the end of 
September. 

"The problem is that it depends very 
much on the course. In some cases such 


to get the right A-level 
grades can still get a 
place on a degree 
course. Edward Fennell 
gives some tips on how 
to go about it 


The Times Network for Schools and 
during the next few weeks the careers 
teacher, Paul Northcott, will be working 
alongside Sue Rogers probing for va- 
cancies at the polytechnics and institu- 
tions of higher education. 

A scan of courses on Thursday 
morning showed that across the nation 
teacher training courses were, almost 
without exception, undersubscribed. As 
with the polytechnics, the Bachelor of 
Education courses are experimenting 
with a new application system this year 
which makes it difficult for lecturers to 
gauge exactly how full (or empty) their 
courses are. 


But David Bolton of King Alfred's 
stitute ofHieher Education felt that his 


The trick lies in identifying 
where yon will be viewed as 
a good candidate 


as medicine; dentistry, law and vet- 
erinary science there is no room for 
error. And conditional offers from 
Oxbridge may have to be met in full. But 
it depends on how well other candidates 
have done and on the circumstances of 
the individual.” 

According to Mr P Oakley, general 
secretary of tire Universities' Central 
Council on Admissions, the joker in the 
pack is the effect of the teachers' strike. 
“It could be that the overall results are 
lower this year because of the impact of 
tire industrial action and it may be that 
the universities are more flexible than 
usual." 

The admissions tutors in the univer- 
sities take some time to digest the exam 
results and to decide what variation they 
will permit on the conditional offers. 

“I'm afirtid all I can say to students is 
that they must be patient," said Sue 
Rogers. “By the end of next week almost 
everyone will have been notified by 
UCCA on where they stand and, until 
then, tire most they can do is think about 
alternatives in case they're not 
accepted." 

Peter Symonds College is hooked up to 


Institute of Higher Education felt that bis 
college was in line with others in bong 
short of good applicants — especially in 
subjects such as craft, design, technology 
and music 

Even in a popular “main subject" for 
teacher training, like English. 34 out of 
5 1 courses were still looking for students, 
and in religious studies it was 31 out of 
43. For maths and physics it should be 
posable to get into teacher training 
virtually anywhere if your grades are at 
all reasonable. 

The next two weeks is the period when 
all the vital, but unofficial, deals are done 
between candidates and colleges. The 
clearing schemes for both polytechnics 
and universities swing into action on 
September 1, but. by then, the smarter 
students will lave brought themselves to 
the attention of admission tutors. Even 
popular courses can take on fresh 
applicants at this late stage. 

“We have about 1 .200 applications for 
65 places." said Tim Wheeler, ad- 
missions tutor for the degree course in 
communications and media production 
at the Dorset Institute of Higher Educa- 
tion. 

“It's a popular course because about 
half the time is spent on practical 
production in radio and video projects 
so tire students gain lots of hands-on 
experience. But even though we are very 
popular we still expect to pick up about 
seven or eight of our eventual students 
about now. The fluidity within the 
system means that good candidates can 


still be made offers during the Iasi few 
weeks." . 

The trick, of coarse, lies m identifying 
where you will be viewed as a good 
candidate. Mr Wheeler puts almost as 
much emphasis on personal qualities 
and a portfolio of creative work as he 
does on A-levd grades: Subjects that are 
more “academic" will depend bn exam 
results alone. 

Mr Northcott of Peter Symonds 
College emphasises that, in general, the 
engineering and applied science courses 
are the ones to aim for: They are more 
likely to have vacancies, and they offer 
good career prospects. At Kingston 
Polytechnic, for example, a new degree 
course in manufacturing engineering 
(which ispacked full of the latest robotics 
and computing) needs to recruit stu- 
dents. It offers a short cut to excellent 
career prospects in high-tech industry 
but is in danger of being overlooked. 

The same applies to physics, 
mathematics, computer studies and 
electronic engineering. In aD of these 
vital subjects, applications through 
UCCA went down significantly this year. 
Meanwhile, accountancy, business stud 
ies and law went op. 

As Mr Oakley of UCCA comments 
“On the basis at these figures it is likely 
there will be places through clearing in 
those subjects where applications de- 
clined and unlikely there will be places 


For wflths and physics it is 
possible to get into teacher 
training virtually anywhere 


where applications have increased." 

Mr Northcott finds there is still some 
prejudice against polytechnics among his 
students. “I had a chip on my shoulder 
for the first six months of being in poly," 
said one former Peter Symonds student, 
“and then I suddenly realized the course 
was much better than the one Td applied 
for at university.” 

There is little doubt that the teething 
problems following this year's introduc- 
tion of new application methods for 
polytechnics and teacher training is 
causing considerable anxieties among 
both schools and institutions. One 
business studies course at a polytechnic, 
for example, has made over 600 offers 
for 60 places and is desperately hoping 
that most of those candidates will either 
foil or go elsewhere because it is obliged 
by law to take people who have satisfied 
Its conditional requirements. 

The best policy is to seek advice from 
your careers teacher, exploit the comput- 
erized vacancy information at your 
school or careers office, and then make 
contact with admissions tutors. But 
waste not a moment — speed is of the es- 
sence at this stage of the game.

. ' „ tire computotion of the rent 

piorthand/awfao secre- allowance provided by foe 

roSnoSSl deSrtoent parties, isduding the Home 


of the police authority's bousing 
stock. 

In 1985 the police authority 
for Greater Manchester sought 
approval of a revised force 
maximum limit based upon an 
increased notional rental value 
of a selected “typical” house: 

The Home Secreuiy refused 
to approve the new maximum 
limits and stated, inter alia, that 
it was doubtful whether the 
selected house could be regarded 1 
astypicaL 

Similarly, the Humberside 
police authority sought the 
Home Secretary's approval of a 
maximum limit rent allowance 
based upon a selected typical 
property. 

The Home Secretary refused 
approval on foe ground that the 
requirements of the circular 
were not met. 

There was no patent ambigu- 
ity in regulation 47(4Xb) in foe 
two roles, namely, that foe 
police authority fixed the maxi- 
mum limit for each rank and 
that that limit did not come into 
effect unless approved by foe 
Home Secretary. 

The regulation placed no 
constraint on the Home Sec- 
retary in the performance of his 
role and the exercise of his 
authority to approve or dis- 
approve could only be subject to 
foe inherent duty to act reason- 
ably. 

The Home Secretary had to 
treat each application on its own 
merits. It was not open to him to 
prejudge his consideration by 
laying down in advance criteria 
by which he would exercise his 
power. 

To the extent that the circular 
announced new criteria by 
which future applications would 
be examined rather than consid- 
ering each application on its 
own merits, foe circular was 
ultra vires and of no effect. 

The central question was 
whether foe court would order 
judicial review of decision let- 
ters. whether as evidence of an 
unreasonable exercise of power 
under the regulation or under 
the principle of legitimate 
expectation. 

Section I of the Police Nego- 
tiating Board Act 1980 which set 
up foe board to represent foe 
interests of the police force 
provided ample bass for a 
legitimate expectation on the 
pan of the applicants that a step 
which would substantially prej- 
udice rent allowances would not 
be taken without having re- 
sorted to the negotiating proce- 
dures established by foe Act. 

Once it was established that 
the selection of foe “typical 
house” was not merely a refine- 
ment of an existing procedure 
but made a substantial dif- 


Las Lenas, Argentina (Reuter) 
— P^ter Mueller, of Switzerland, 
got his World Cup season off to 
a fine start al foe weekend by 
opening up an eariy lead in the 
championship despile a strong 
attack from his compatriot 
i Piimin Zurbriggen. 

After two (teys of competition 
in foe men’s downhill event, 
Mueller was on 40 points, five 
points ahead of his team-mate, 
having finished first and third in 
his two races. Third place went 
to Leonhard Stock, of Austria, 
foe former Olympic champion. 
' The bad weather which had 
plagued foe tournament from 
the start had all but disappeared 
by foe second day. And with 
conditions more conducive to 
last times, the skiers were able to 
attack the course from foe off. 
Zurbriggen. the 1984 World Cup 
champion, who won the second 
race after finishing sixth in foe 
first, said: “I was much more 
aggressive and really skiing at 
the limit. The snow was hard 
enough to make it a good race.” 


Mueller, however, blamed 
falling visibility on the tact he 
was 'more cautious in foe second 
race, while Danilo Sbarddlotto. 
who arrived as one of Italy’s 
brightest hopes, finished seven- 
teenth and complained that the 
course was too steep and too 
short for a downhill race. Marc 
GirardellL of Luxembourg, the 
reigning champion, finished 
tenth in foe second race, but lies 
sixth overall — courtesy of a 
fourth-place finish the previous 
day.

On November 30, 1984 

Home Office Circular . No 
90/1984 was published. It 
slated, inter alia, that the Home 
Secretary would take into ac- 
count the rateable value of foe 
selected bouse and whether it 
was broadly in line with the 
average rateable value of the 
police authority’s housing. 

When applying for the Home 
Secretary’s approval ofincreases 
in maximum limits it required 
the police authority to state 
whether the selected bouse met 
that description, giving foe rate- 
able value of the selected bouse 
and the average rateable value 


of rent allowances, lhar was a 
change in procedure. in respect 
of which the applicants had a 
legitimate expectation that foe 
question would be considered in 
the negotiating procedure. 

The judge, was correct in 
quashing the two decision letters 
which were based upop the 

circular. 

In exercising his powers to 
approve or disapprove, the 
Home Secretary had an un- 
fettered discretion which was 
subject to a duty to act reason- 
ably in the Wednesbury sense 
([1948] 1 KB 223) and a duty to 
exercise his power in accordance 
with the principles established 
in the agreements. 

The Home Secretary foiled to 
exercise his powers within those 
constraims. 

Lord Justice Lloyd and Lord 
Justice GlideweU delivered 
concurring j udgments. 

Solicitors: Treasury Solicitor;

circuit in Northern Ireland at 
foe weekend, and followed that 
with a remote fourth behind 
Stephen Cull in the 250ec class, 
his admirers had visions of 
Dunlop being eclipsed over his 
favourite circuit. 

But Dunlop was saving his 
best for the last race of the day: 
the Classic. He set a lap record 
of 120.83 mph, averaging 1 18.29 
mpb. as he came in 14 seconds 
ahead of Roger Marshall, his 
Honda team-mate. 

Brian Reid retained his For- 
mula Two world title when be 
j finished second to Eddie 
Laycock. Reid, who rode a 
tactical race in the worst of the 
weather, never attempted to 
close on the Dubliner who took 
foe flag 66 seconds ahead. 
“There was no point in pushing 
it in those conditions,” Reid 
said. “The circuit was awash 
and as long as I kept in touch the 
title was fine.” He finished with 
31 championship points. 

Dunlop's distant second to 
Robinson was attributable to 
two factors: wrong choice of 
lyres and a near-accident on the 
first lap when he virtually had to 
stop after a rider came off at the 
hairpin bend just in front of 
him. ... 


Jack Nickiaus. w ho struggled to 
a plus one total. Bob Tway, the 
recent PGA championship win- 
ner, with no points, and Tom 
Watson who finished at minus 
two. Other casualties included 
Hal Sutton, John Mahaffcy and 
Corey Ravin. 

In ibis new tournament, each 
par is worth no points, birdies 
two. eagles five and double 
eagles 10. Each one over par 
scores minus one point white 
two over par or worse is minus 
three. 

The winner of the 12-player 
final round will collect S I S0.000 
while the twelfth placed finisher 
will earn $28,000.

SHOOTING 

Braisher’s 

superiority 

confirmed 

By our Shooting 

Correspondent 

Neil Braisher, a marketing 
executive from Chichester, took 
most of the major trophies at foe 
National Small Bore Rifle 
Association meeting which 
ended at Bisley on Saturday, but 
had a hard task to win foe 
British individual 

championship. 

He won foe title for foe 
second time in four years but 
was forced to a tie-breaker by 
Michael Babb, aged 22. of 
Soufoborough, Kent, when they 
both scored 778 out of 800 for 
their 40 shots at 50 metres and 
40 at 100 yards. 

Although the general level of 
scoring was lower than in recent 
years, all were equally affected 
by the conditions and in foe tie- 
breaker, 20 shots at 100 yards, 
Braisher scored 194 and Babb 
191. 

Braisher, of foe Havant Rifle 
Club, dominated the meeting, 
winning the grand aggregate and 
the 50 metre championship. 
Although he was unplaced in the 
three- positi ons cham pionship a t 
foe start of foe meeting, his 
prone scores throughout the 
week were so high that he also 
won the combined aggregate 
trophy with 3,883 out of a 
possible 4,000.

Stockton-on-Tees Borough 
Coandi v Brown 
Before Mr Justice PoppleweU, 
Mr J. P. BeD and Mr W. Sirs 
[Judgment given July 21] 
Section 60(1) of the Employ- 


ment Protection (Consolida- 
tion) Act 1978. which rendered 
dismissal on the ground of 
pregnancy automatically unfair, 
did not apply where an em- 
ployee was made redundant and 
not selected for re-eogpgemem 
because she was pregnant. 

The Employment Appeal Tri- 
bunal allowed an appeal by the 
employers. Stockton-on-Tees 
Borough Council, from a de- 
cision of a Middlesbrough 
industrial tribunal last August 
that the applicant, Ms Maria 
Brown, had been unfairly dis- 
missed. 

They had appealed on the 
ground, inter alia, that the 
industrial tribunal had erred in 
their interpretation of section 

6< Section 60 provides: 

“(1) An employee shall be 
treaied. . . as unfairiy dismissed 
if the reason or principal reason 
for her dismissal is that she is 

pregnant . . .**. 

Mr J. Scott Wolslenhobne for 
the employers; Mrs Vera Baud 
for foe applicant. 

MR JUSTICE 

POPPLEWELL said that selec- 
tion for re-employment was 
according to certain criteria 
which included an applicant’s 
ability to undertake the required 
duties. 

The applicant was made 
redundant and not re-engaged 
because she would have been 
absent on maternity leave at the 
start of foe contract The indus- 
trial tribunal held that the

It was argued on appeal that i 
the dismissal had nothing to do 
with the applicant's pregnancy. 
She was dismissed on account of 
redundancy. It was only when 
foe q uestion of whether she was 
unfairiy dismissed by reason of 
redundancy that the question of 
pregnancy arose because it was 
the unfair selection for redun- 
dancy which brought foe preg- 
nancy argument into existence. 

The applicant replied that foe 
object of section 60 was to 
ensure that an applicant did not 
lose her job because she was 
pregnant and that if she was 
selected for redundancy because 
she was pregnant she was in the 
same position as if she was 
dismissed because she was preg- 
nant 

The appeal tribunal con- 
trasted the reason for dismissal 
in section 59 (dismissal on foe 
ground of redundancy) with 
section 60 (dismissal on foe 
ground of pregnancy) and ob- 
served that if selection for 
redundancy on the ground of 
pregnancy were automatically 
unfair it would be possible for 

section 60 to be so worded. They 
did not -accept the applicant's 
argument that section 60 ap- 
plied. 

U had been agreed by both 
parties that the question 
whether foe criteria for re- 
employment were fair bad not 
bean dealt with by the industrial 
tribunaL 

lf both parties represented by 
experienced counsel consented 
to the appeal tribunal acting as a 
feci-finding body, they would do 

so and consider the fairness of 
the criteria. 

The parties would thereafter 
be barred from taking objection 
to that course on appeal. 

The industrial members took 
foe view that it was in no way 
unfair to require applicants to be 
able io fulfill foe job throughout 
its comparatively short dura- 
tion. 

The dismissal for redundancy 
was &ir. The appeal would be 
allowed.

Theobalds, Stockton-on-Tees;

Another field day for

By Peter Marsoo 


Allan Lamb’s run-making

and Richards 70 not out in 
Surrey's 427 for nine declared 
from 96.1 overs against Somer- 
set at Taunton and at 1 Nuneaton 
Gloucestershire managed three

SWIMMING 

Gross has 
the edge 
over his 
rival 

Madrid (Reuter) - Michael 
Gross, the Olympic gold medal 
winner, set a championship 
record as he opened the defence 
of his 200 metres freestyle title 
at the world swimming 
championships here yesterday. 
In doing so he upstaged Mau 
Biondi. the American world 
record holder over 50 and 100 
metres freestyle and Gross’s 
main rivaL 

Biondi demonstrated his 
power when he clocked I min 
49 .22 see to win his his qualify- 
ing race and slice 0-33 of a 
second from the West German’s 
1982 championship record. 

But the 22 year-old Gross won 
the final heat — in which Biondi 

also swam — in 1:48.70, this 

boding well for an attack on the 
world mark of 1:47.44 he set in 
the 1984 Olympic Games. 

On a blazing bot day. Biondi 
was fastest out. passing the 100- 
metre mark in 52.29. nearly a 
second quicker than the West 
German. Bui Gross, stretching 
out in his seemingly effortless 
style, had a clear edge in the 
return 100. 

Gross and Biondi were well 
clear of the rest as Marcel Gery, 
of Czechoslovakia, returned the 
third fastest time, more than a 
second slower than Biondi. 
Adrian Moorhouse. of Britain, 
gained a psychological advan- 
tage over Victor Davis, his 
Canadian arch-rival, breaking 
the championship record with 
the fastest final qualifying time 
in the men’s 100 metres breast- 
stroke heats. ' 

Moorhouse, the Common- 
wealth Games 200 metres cham- 
pion. clocked a European record 
1:02.28 which also beat the 
1:02.75 world championship 
mark set by Steve LundquisL 
the American, in Guayaquil, 
Ecuador, four yean ago. 

Gianni Minervini.of Italy, 
yesterday's third fastest qualifier 
in 1:03.27. was the previous 
European record holder at 
1:02.61. Davis, who beat 
Moorhouse in the Common- 
wealth Games 100 metres, was 
second swiftest in 1:03. 16. 

In the diving pool, Greg 
Louganis. the world and Olym- 
pic double champion made a 
fine start to his defence of the 
men's springboard title. He 
scored two perfect 10s on his 
third dive and compiled an 
aggregate 251.07 points for his 
five morning dives. Tan 
Uangde, of China, was second 
on 237.66. 

Jenna Johnson, of the US, 
topped qualifiers for the 
women's 100 metres freestyle 
final in 55.58. but Kristin Otto, 
of East Germany, was just 0.3 of 
a second back. Otto, world 
champion over 100 metres 
backstroke in 1982, is bidding 
for an unprecedented seven 
world championship medals in 
Madrid. 

East Germany, who won 10 of 
the 14 world championship 
titles last time, led the way in the 
two other women's events. 

Kathleen Nord. double Euro- 
pean champion in Sofia last 
year, topped 400 metres individ- 
ual medley qualifiers with a 
time of 4:47.94. But Michelle 
Griglione. of America, was a 
mere 0.02 of a second adrifL 
The East Germans also 
clocked the fastest 4 x 200 
metres freestyle relay time of 
8:08.93. with the Netherlands 
second fastest on 8:13.88. 

CYCLING 

Glasgow is 
tuning up 
for Peiper 

By a Correspondent 

The itinerant band of pro- 
fessional racing cyclists will 
roost tonight in Glasgow after 
the fourth event in the Kelloggs 
City Centre Championships. 

Seven days ago, the series 
started in Manchester, and has 
travelled via Dublin and Cbrk 
to Glasgow. The ever-present 
flock of .stallings in George 
Square will be ousted from the 
trees and buildings by the noise 
created by the massed ranks of 
spectators crowded on to the 
pavements at seven o'clock 
tonighL 

Last year, the Falcon Flyer, 
Shane Sutton, was first across 
the line in Glasgow, and went on 
to win the championships. Sut- 
ton, the rough, tough Austra- 
lian. was following the 
precedent set by his fellow 
countrymen, Danny Clark, who 
won in 1984, and Phil Ander- 
son, the 1 983 event winner. 

For the Glasgow event this 
year, the organizers have im- 

E jrted another Australian, Al- 
n Peiper. 

With the addition of “guest 

riders’’ to selected cities, the 
Kelloggs Championship is a race 
within a race. The overall 
winner in London on September 
7 must have contested all seven 
events. In Cork on Friday night, 
the eJTect of this arrangement 
was most evident as the visiting 
firemen, Stephen Roche and 
Sean Kelly, recruited for two 
events in Ireland only, stretched 
the field. Kelly finally won the 
event. Behind them, Joey 
McLoghlin. the winner in Man- 
chester. and his strong ANC- 
HaJ fords team, contained the 
main contenders for the overall 
championship. 

Phil Bayton, who is affec- 
tionately known as the 
“Staffordshire engine" for his 
driving power al the front of the 
field, slipped the net and 
steamed into third place in 
Cork. 

He rides for Moducel who 
have Mike Doyle in ihe Green 
Jersey as King of the Sprints 
leader. Team member Steve 
Joughin (the pocket rocket) was 
in sparkling form in Cork, and 
the star-spangled jerseys of the 
Condor-Bilion riders were al- 
ways in the action. 


RACING MOURNS PASSING OF ONE OF THE SPORTS MOST COLOURFUL CHARACTERS 


Start-Rite can 
lead Ives to 
double helping 
of winners 


Farewell to a great horseman 


By Mandarin 


That talented jockey Tony 
Ives, who teams up with royal 
trainer Ian Balding at 
Kingsclere next season, has an 
excellent chance of riding a 
double today for his present 
retainer, the Newmarket- 
based Bill O'Gorman. 

Ives, who will always be 
remembered for his wonderful 
association with the prolific 
winning two-year-old 
Provideo, should be on the 
mark at Windsor this after- 
noon with another O’Gorman 
juvenile, Start-Rite, who is 
napped to open his account in 
the six fiuiongs Newholme 
Stakes. 

After a quiet introduction 
behind Le Favori at New- 
market Start-Rite displayed 
rapid improvement when foil- 
ing to catch the more experi- 
enced Riot Brigade by a short 
.head in a Yarmouth maiden 
event earlier this month. 

My selection, a well-made 
son of Comedy Star, looks to 
have plenty of scope for 
improvement and can take 
full advantage of the 61b he 
receives today from the Barry 
Hills-trained course and dis- 
tance winner, Centauri 

John Dunlop's candidate. 
King Richard, shaped nicely 
when staying on strongly for 
third place behind Anyow in a 
small field at Brighton and 
commands respect but Start- 
Rite is preferred 

Ambassador, making his 


first racecourse appearance, 
could not match the finishing 
speed of the 33-1 Wragg filly 
Norpelia at Newmarket nine 
davs ago, but this General 
Assembly colt can complete 
the O'Gorman-Ives double at 
Leicester in the Captains EBF 
Stakes. 

The Aga Khan repre- 
sentative, Roubayd, scored 
decisively at Bath last month. 
However, the opposition may 
not have amounted to much 
that day and Ambassador, 
receiving 51b, can take his 
measure. 

Lester Piggott celebrated his 
21st training success with his 
smart two-year-old Deputy 
Governor at Newbury on 
Friday, and another of his 
youngsters, Paleface, can 
carry on the good work by 
landing the Leicester Tigers 
Cup Treble Nursery. 

Last time out, al Redcar, 
Paleface was a warm order to 
land a similar handicap, but 
was run out of it in the closing 
by the Tom Jones- 
trained Khadruf 

The Alec Stewart-trained 
Sender looks on a favourable 
weight for the Leicester Tigers 
Handicap following his credit- 
able second behind Brave And 
Bold at Redcar, while John 
Sutcliffe's River Gambler, 
caught in the last stride by 
Siillou at Lingfield, could be 
the answer to die tricky 
Measham Handicap.

By Michael Seely 

The raring world yesterday 
paid tribute to the memory of 
Captain Ryan Price, that 
flamboyant soldier of fortune 
and natural genres with horses, 
who died in the early hours of 
Saturday morning on his 74th 
birthday. 

Fred Winter, foer times cham- 
pion jockey during his IS years 
with the “wizard of Flndgn" 
said: “He was a man's man. He 
certainly didn’t suffer fools 
gladly. Some people liked him 
and some people hated hint, but 
he didn't give a damn either 
way." 

“He was a wonderful man to 
work for, though,” Winter said, 
"We had only two serious rows 
daring our time together. And as 
for his way with horses, be 
thought of them like people and 
had an intuitive understanding 
of their nature. He left them 
alone and studied their whims 
and idiosyncrasies. He excelled 
at finding out their best 
distances." 

Winter won three Champion 
Hardies for the stable on Clair 
Soleil, Fare Time and 
Eborneezer. But Josh Gifford, 
himself four times National 
Hant champion and now the 
owner of The Downs, Findon, 
Price's former headquarters, 
-was on board "the Captain's" 
four winners of the Schweppes 
Gold Trophy. Rosylfa (twice), Le 
Vermont© is and Hill House. 

Backers of the last two of 
these snccessfiii gambles were 
counting their winnings a long 
way from borne. Le Vermontois, 
despite hardly bothering to lift 
his legs at the last three bardies 
won by six lengths in 1966. Hill 
House, the horse, who was 
afterwards found to have mana- 
factnred his own cortisone, 
romped home by 12 lengths in 
1967 to a rising crescendo of a 
mixture of boos and cheers from 
the Newbury crowd. 

Paul Ke lieway, now a success- 
fill trainer at Newmarket, rode 
What A Myth to victory in the 
1969 Cheltenham Gold Cop for 
Findon. "People used to talk a 
lot of nonsense about him giving 
'them staff to make than go 
faster" be said, “It was utter 
rubbish. He was a wonderful 
feeder and could improve ani- 
mals very quickly. When a hone 
was coming to his peak, you 
could almost see him haring 
grown in his box overnight. 

Kelleway saRh“I was with him 
for over 20 years and he made 
me what I am today. He was a 
wonderful trainer with a lot of 
common sense and that what it’s 



Ryan Price and Fred Winter attending the Newmarket September sales in 1963 


all about. He was a good man to 
work for and you always knew 
where yon were with him." 

Gifford paid this tribote: 
“They don't make characters 
like him any more. And he will 
be sadly missed. He was a good 
friend mid a great governor. His 
bark was so much worse than his 
bite and most people never 
realised it." 

David Coleman, of the BBC 
certainly felt the rough edge of 
Price's toogoe after Winter and 
KOniore had won the Grand 
National In 1962. 

Kllmore's record that season 
prior to Aintree had not exactly 
been distinguished and Coleman 
attempted to grill the trium- 
phant trainer. Fixing his even- 
tually flustered interrogator with 
an indignant and baleful stare, 
“the Captain" uttered the im- 
mortal words. "I trained him for 
the race." 

Before Price turned his atten- 
tions exclusively to the Flat in 


1970. the victories of Persian 
Lancer and Major Rose in the 
Cesarewicfa in 1966 and 1968 
had already illustrated the 
trainer's total mastery of his 
craft. 

You coaid always tell -a 
FJndon-trained horse instantly 
in the paddock by the bloom on 
its coat and the well-being of 
Ginevra. Bnmi and Giacometti 
were evident before their suc- 
cesses in the Oaks, St Leger and 
Champion Stakes, respectively. 

I only met this remarkable 
individual once socially. It was 
during a long and convival 
evening at Michael Stoute** 
when the wine and port flowed 
freely. The rakish trilby was left 
on a hook in the hall and his 
bald dome gleamed in the 
candlelight 

He was on the top of his form. 
Talking about boises he said, 
“They are net what they were. 
They used to be like wild things. 


climbing up the walls of their 
boxes. The lads used to be 
shaking in the corners, terrified 
of them." 

Bob McCreery, a lifelong 
friend and admirer, ventured his 
opinion that the reason for this 
over-exuberance might have 
been too much food and lack of 
sufficient exercise. 

“Staff and nonsense," roared 
the Ca plain across the polished 
table. “They were like tigers. 
They had fire in their bellies in 
those days." 

Come to think of it, what more 

fitting epitaph could there be for 
the piratical and kindly Ryan 
Price than his own colounu! and 
dramatic words about his 
lavonrite creature, the thorough- 
bred racehorse, coming as they 
did from a man, who understood 
them so welL

Polonia is 
pick of 
Irish team 
at York 

From oar Irish Raring 
Correspondent 

Jim Bolger. the only Info 
trainer who has so for saddled* 
Flat race winner is England 
during the current season, pm- 
vidcs the Irish banker at York 
this week, having elected to semi 
Polonia over for the Lowther 
Stakes. 

This will be Pcrionia's secoiffi 
start in England and sbc.ran wrij 
below her best when out of the 
Fust four behind Cutting Blade 
in the Coventry Stakes ai Royal 
Ascot. 

Bade in Ireland, she was as 
easv winner at The Conagb 66 
Derby day and then ran prob. 
ably her best race so for to be 
third, a short head and a length; 
behind those two smart English 
fillies Minstrefla and Forest 
Flower in the Heinz “57" Phqe$ 
nix Stakes. 

Bolger also runs Park Express 
in the Yorkshire Oaks, but d 
better cach-way prospect here 
could be the Irish Oaks runner* 
up Fleur Royale, who has beej 
very lightly raced. Thq 
pick, though, of the David 
O'Brien runners should btf 
Sheikh Mohammed's AuthaaL 
whose objective is the Great 
Vohigcur Stakes. 

Al The Curtagh on Saturday. 
David O'Brien introduced an 
attractive two-year-old colt 
Stately Don in the Dunmurry 
maiden. Starting favourite at 
even money be strolled home

Cause 

Pat Eddery rode three more 
winners on Saturday, two of 
them on Ihrec-year-old colts 
Fleet Commander and Wise 
Counsellor trained at Ballydoyte 
by Vincent O’Brien. 

This was Wise Counsellor's 
first outing since filling the role 
of whipper-in in the Derby at 
Epsom. 

Eddery pushed him into tho 
lead one and a half furlongs our 
and he soon had the opposition 
in the group three Desmond 
stakes al full stretch. Mr John, 
tieing up the form nicely, fits 
ished a two length runner-up, 
trying to give 51b to the winner. 

Vincent O’Brien is by no 
means sure that Wise Coun- 
sellor will race again this year, it 
being the intention to keep him 
on in training as a four-year-old.

German doable Leger prospect 


Lining and Acatenango made it 
an afternoon to re m e m ber for 
the Cologne trainer Heinz 
Jentzsch by winning group one 
races at Deauville and Gelsen- 
kirchen yesterday. 

Lining, enterprisingly ridden 
by Steve Cauthen, made all the 
running to land the Prix du 
Haras de Fresnay-Ie-Buffard 
Jacques le Marois from the last- 
finishing Regal State with John 
Dunlop^ Efuio (Willie Carson), 
thini. 

Pal Eddery, riding Arokar, 


BakharofT. third in both the 
French and Irish Derby, upheld 
the classic form when justifying 

6-4 favouritism in the Walinac 
International Geoffrey Fr eer 
Stakes at Newbury on Saturday. 

The Khaled Abdulla coll, 
trained by Guy Harwood and 
ridden by Willie Carson, be- 
cause stable jockey G re Wile 
Starkey coaid not make the 
weight, shook ofTSirk inside the 
final furlong to win by a length. 

The winner received a 6-1 St 


earned a four-day suspension Leger quote from William Hill, 
towards, commencing and Harwood said: “The idea 


from the stewards, commencing 
on August 26, for causing inter- 
ference to Elle Seule. 

Carson later took second 
place to Darara in the Prix de 
Psyche on the Dick Hem 
trained Cocotle.

Raymond cleared 

Top English jockey Bruce 
Raymond has been allowed to 
leave Hong Kong for the first 
time in six months after being 
cleared in a long-running probe 
into race fixing. The indepen- 
dent commission against 
corruption has given Raymond 
back his passport and financial 
papers and on Saturday he flew 
to Singapore for a short holiday 
with his wife. Gillian. 

In July the Royal Hong Kong 
Jockey Club banned the English 
trainer Derek Kent for three 
years following the corruption 
investigation. The ban means 
that Kent cannot set foot on a 
racecourse or have anything to 
do with horse racing anywhere 
until I9S9.

after a tense finishjo the Croft

yesterday because Mrs Green 
withdrew after contracting a

Robert Lemieux, who lost 
his chance with The 
Gamesmaster after a fell al the 
last fence, made up for it with 
a good round on his second 
horse; The Poser, to finish in 
sixth place. 

Outside the championship 
class, the most inspired rides 
of the day came from 21-year- 
old Rachel Hunt who won the

ai their customary pace; putting 
.... on 104 in 21 overs before Nick 
. Cook and harper slowed the 
tempo to a degree. 

Gooch was well held by Lamb 
at long-off and thereafter neither

'match, nor Pringle quite man-

Northamptonshire's bowling. 
Handle's century, made off 107

It was his first John Player

' ever his innings featured idio-

‘and- pulls are liable to go 
anywhere, but more often than 
. not through the gaps. They 
brought in foe bulk of his runs 
yesterday. 

■Still on a good hatting pitch, 
Northamptonshire must have 
been reasonably pleased to keep 
Essex down to 234 for five: That 
was until they lost Larkins and

Derbyshire enjoy a 
crushing victory 




CHESTERFIELD: Derby- 
shire (4 points) bt Yorkshire try 
10 wickets 

Outstanding seam bowling by 
Die Monensen and Michael 
Holding sent Yorkshire to a 
rushing defeat yesterday, their 
first by Derbyshire in the John 
Player League since 1978. After 
Yorkshire had been bowled out 
for 132, Barnett and Hill's 
-unbeaten partnership took 
Derbyshire to victory with 1 1 
avers to spare. 

/ With Queen’s Park at its best 
in foe sunshine. Chesterfield 
l altered fully into the Sunday 
league spiriL The Chesterfield 
band — a silver and brass 
Misembie — played jauntily 
oefore the start. As Derbyshire 
_ ame out the announcer in- 
‘ 'ormed us they were being led by 
David Baimow, correcting him- 
: jdf only after hectic gestures by 

• ihe Derby players.

straights, and as Warner, with 
foe aid of another stunning 
catch, this tune by Roberts, and 
Finney chipped into remove 
Bairstow and Love, there 
seemed no escape. Garrick and 
Peter Hartley revived them 
briefly whh a stand of 48 in 10 
overs before Holding returned 
to end foe resistance. 

Any thought that Yorkshire's 
seam bowlers could be 
effective were quickly 
by Barnett and H3L Alter a 
cautious start, spending 16 
overs accumulating their first 
50, the tempo increased sharply. 
The second SO took only eight as 
Yorkshire's dispirited bowlers 
were treated contemptuously. 
Hill batting with almost as 
much freedom as bis captain.

. Derek .Randall marked his 
return to first-team cricket noth 
an entertaining 88 yesterday as 
Nottinghamshire maintained 
their challenge in foe John 
Player League. Randall, who has 
been absent since breaking a 
finger on July 9, was top scorer 
as No tting h am s hir e m ade 237 
for five. 

Ned Faiibrother hit 79 in 
aggressi ve sty le to lead 
Lancashire's reply, though be 
was dropped at long-on when 13 
off Hemmings. Richard Hadlee 
was resting a minor groin strain 
and Nottinghamshire were not 
always able to keep foeir oppo- 
nent subdued. In foe rad. 
though, Lancashire found the 
target was too difficult. 

Lancashire bad begun badly, 
losing three wickets for 20 as foe 
cricket vied for the crowd's 
attention with a display by the !L B 
Red Arrows, who were perform- J, j 
ing at a nearby airshow. Clive ~ “ 
Lloyd hit the baD hard as be and 
Fairbrother shared a promising 
stand before Lloyd was well 
caught on foe long-on boundary. 
O’Sbaughnessy was 

Fairbrofoer’s next partner but 
55 were still needed from five 
overs when these two were out 
in successive overs. 
Fairbroiher’s innings ended 
when he drove a catch to extra 
cover. 

Nottinghamshire, similarly, 
made an uncertain start. They 
were 44 for three before Rice 
and Randall righted the ship by 
adding 127 in 22 overs. Before 
this Johnson and Broad were 
both out in the twelfth over. 

Johnson, foe non-striker, was 
unluckily ran out when 
Makinson, the bowler, deflected 
a straight drive into tbe stumps. 

Broad was splendidly caught by 
Lloyd. He recalled the days 
when he was a spectacular cover 


Hampshire lost ground in the 
John Flayer Special league at 
Lord’s yesterday 

when Mid d l e sex romped home 
to win by eight wickets. Set to 
make 196, Radley made 47, and 
Slack, 75. before Butcher, 42 not 
out and Carr, 26 not oat, hit the 
winning runs with six balls to 
spare. 

Having chosen to field first, 
Gowans got Middlesex away to a 
rood start when he bowled 
Greenidge for 13 with the sene 
24. At 71, Terry fen to Ed- 
monds, and though he and 
Emburey bowled well Robin 
Smith pushed on to make 65, 


By Peter Marsoa 

and Nicholas, 41, as Hampshire 
rallied. 

It was a desperately close 
affair at Hove where Kent beat 
Sassex by one wicket with four 
bails to spare. Kent's target had 
been 182, and Hinks and Aslett 
had made runs before tbe 
brothers Cowdrey came to- 
gether. Baptiste (44) and Ellison 
(33) saw Kent home. Batting 
first, Sussex made good progress 
against Baptiste. Ellison, and 
later Underwood, and in 
conceding 117 runs, none of 
these three had a wicket to show. 
Alan Wells, who made 30 and 
Parker (18) put on the first 50, 
and if Imran and Colin Weils

If Somerset’s crowd at Taun- j 
ton were hoping for more 
fireworks in another explosive 
display from Ian Botham, then a 
foil 01 rain put an rad to that 
idea. After Surrey bad made 1 98 
for five from 36 oven, .the 
match was abandoned. Surrey 
had done well to make 1 10 for 1 
foe first wicket. Marks then 
caught and bowled Butcher, 
who made 50, and Taylor prised 
oul Clinton, who made 70. 
Taylor, Botham and Garner: 
then combined to round up 
Stewart, Lynch and Ward, but 
Richards held fost to make 47 
not out. 

At Edgbaston, 

Warwickshire's score of 284 for 
five moved to be too great a 
target for Gloucestershire whom 
they beat by 46 runs. A invita- 
tion to bat first obviously suited 
Warwickshire's book. 

Hopkins is 
back in 
the runs 

SH ANSE4: The New Zealand- 
ers, with seven second-innings 
nickels in hand, are 149 runs 
ahead of Glamorgan. 

John Hopkins, the Glamor- 
gan opening batsman, fought his 
way back into form after a lean 
spell, which has kept him out of 
the first team, when be hit his 
first cranny of foe season 
against the New Zealand touring 
side at Swansea yesterday. 

Hopkins, aged 33, who is 
celebrating his benefit year, hit 
1 42 in 252 minutes off 209 balls, 
including 16 fours and five 
sixes. He took three sixes off one 
over of spin from Evan Gray. 
His innings laid foe foundation 
of a convincing response to the 
New Zealanders* first-day total 
of 378 for five declared. 

Geoffrey Holmes helped 
Hopkins put on 180 for foe 
fourth wicket, the best partner- 
ship for foe county against foe 
New Zealanders since 1937. 
Hopkins got a top edge trying to 
sweep Bracewel! and was caught 
behind by Smith, who also 
stumped Holmes, who pro- 
duced a studied 74, off Gray. 

Glamorgan declared at 303 
for five. 75 runs behind, 
challenging Coney, foe New 
Zealand captain, to go for a 
result on foe final day.

FOOTBALL 


Thoroughbred 
gives the 
two-horse race 
fresh kick 


By Give White 


Liverpool. 

Everton.— 


With a summer break as 
foreshortened as this one. 
there was no reason to believe 
that things should be any 
different from last season. 
And so it proved in the 
General Motors Charity 
Shield at Wembley on Sat- 
urday (for all Everton's 
strange new laces) as the two 
Merseyside favourites raced 
stride for stride towards the 
finishing line almost certainly 
not for the last time this 
season. 

The moment Dalglish 
Joined this quality stalemaie 
m the 65th minute we were 
reminded of just how little life 
has changed as he shook up 
Liverpool with the same 
marked improvement as a 
racehorse whose apprentice 
had been swapped for Piggott 
with a couple of furlongs to ga 

Though they momentarily 
slipped behind to an auda- 
ciously taken eightieth-minute 
goal by Heath, they deservedly 
forced a dead heal with two 
minutes remaining when the 
forces of Dalglish and Rush, 
the two-goal hero of the FA 
Cup Final three months ear- 
lier, produced a fitting climax. 
The Welshman instinctively 
accepted Dalglish's driven 
cross, swiping it past Mimms 
in one lethal stroke. Rush's 
annual goal haul had begun. 

The trouble Liverpool bad 
replacing Souness will be dou- 
bled when this pair eventually 
move on; Rush to his waiting 
pot of gold in Italy at the end 
of the season, Dalglish perma- 
nently to the bench. He spent 
65 minutes there on Saturday 
until he could contain himself 
no longer, coming on to 
replace the plodding Mac- 
Donald. How unusually 
gratifying it must be for a 
manager to be able physically 
to right the wrongs that tor- 
ment his counterparts . 

But for how much longer 


can Dalglish, at 35, be so 
blessed? He says that he 
cannot afford to pick anyone 
on sentiment, including him- 
self; and adds modestly that 
Liverpool have in the past 
played well without him and 
badly with him. Someone 
should have defied him to 
name those occasions, 
particularly the latter. His 
impact on Saturday's game 
was felt from his first touch, 
an aggressive, positive ball 
struck behind the Everton full 
back which put Jobuston in 
where it hurts. 

The fizzy Liverpool winger- 
cum-mid fielder narrowly lost 
the man of the matcfa award to 
Everton's Steven, a player of 
the same ilk. It was encourag- 
ing to see a World Cup 
traveller performing with such 
zest after only a three-week 
break from the game because 
of a dub tour as wdL 

Impressive during that tour 
and again on Saturday was the 
tall, sturdy Langley, signed 
recently from Wigan for 
£120,000. Howard Kendall, 
the Everton manager, seems 
to have spent his holidays at 
the summer sales, strengthen- 
ing his squad and possibly the 
team after the departure of 
Lineker to Barcelona for £2.75 
million. 

Kendall's decision not to 
buy a replacement for the 
England star seems to have 
been vindicated by Heath, 
who was on the point of 
leaving Goodison Park last 
season because of his inability 
to command a first-team 
place. He was voted best 
player in one of Everton's pre- 
season tournaments and, 
comforted with a new four- 
year contract, he and Sharp 
worked together on Saturday 
against the redoubtable Han- 
sen and Lawrenson in a way 
that suggested they had never 
been apart. 

Before a serious injury to 
Heath two seasons ago Ken- 
dall considered his liaison 
with Sharp the most for- 
midable in the country. His

goal was typically full of Adams, signed from Stoke, lion if the divided opinions of 


was 

impudence, pouncing on a 
ball while others pondered, 
before sweeping it confidently 
past Hooper, a substitute for 
Grobbelaar. who had to leave 
the field after 57 minutes with 
a stomach strain which may 
yet delay his League start 
Kendall must have been 
particularly cheered to see a 
team with Reid, BraceweQ, 
Southall, Stevens, MountfiekL, 
Van den Hauwe and Pointon 
fi gh t their way back into 
contention after a dodgy start 
Those reliable deputies. 
Richardson and notably 
Harper, were as able as ever 
and most of the new feces, 
including a familiar one, too, 
in Manchester City's former 
captain. Power, aquitted 
themselves admirably, though 


was understandably over- 
awed by it all during his 25- 
minute spell as substitute. 
Kendall will probably need 
another look at the big, quick 
young Liverpudlian centre 
back, Marshall, before decid- 
ing whether to return to the 
marketplace. 

No doubt Everton's overall 
appearance will be much the 
same as usual in the coining 
weeks, as will that of Liver- 
pool, who, in the absence of 
the injured Nicol, gave Veni- 
son, their only bigsuxnmer 
signing, his debut 

Whether the two teams 
produced sufficient excite- 
ment and enterprise to tempt 
more of those five milli on live 
viewers out of their armchairs 
this winter was open to ques- 


the television pundits were 
anything to go by. Certainly 
both sides played too much 
offside for anybody’s liking. 

A change of casts would be 
no bad tiling but the 
streamlining of the League 
makes thallesslikely. With the 
Merseysiders spending hun- 
dreds of thousands of pounds 
merely to strengthen their 
squads, what chance do the 
others have?

Celtic setting the standard 


The late goal scored by Mau- 
rice Johnston to give Celtic a 1-0 
victory over Clydebank has 
already shortened the odds on 
the Scottish champions retain- 
ing the premier division title 
after only three matches from 
13-8 to 6-*. 

While they never discovered 
real form at tight Kilbowie Park 
and lacked inventiveness during 
the near 90-minute siege on the 
Gydebank goal, their display of 
strength and pace was impres- 
sive enough to show why they 
are the side every other aspirant 
will have to overcome this year. 

Yet sympathy went out to the 
gallant and well-organized home 
defence which faltered only in 
the 87th minute when what had 
previously been a sleeping 
partnership of Johnston and 
Brian McClair woke up to 
manufacture a simple goal, 
Johnston heading into the oet 
from his partner’s cross. 

In contrast to Celtic's bright 


By Hugh Taylor 

start as the only major dub with 
full points. Rangers continued 
to stumble. A near-capacity 
crowd of 44,000 at fbrox was 
stunned when, only two minutes 
from the end, Redford, a former 
Rangers player, scored the win- 
ning goal for Dundee United. 
Yet Rangers, playing splendid 
football, had lead 2-0 at half 
time, thanks to fine goals scored 
by McCoist United adopted a 
more positive attitude in the 
second half, as the expensively 
constructed Rangers defence 
collapsed and Galiacher paved 
United's way to a dramatic 
recovery with two goals before 
Redford completed Rangers' 
misery. 

A troubled week lies ahead for 
Graeme Souness. Not only has 
the player-manager seen his club 
slump from the position of joint 
favourites for the title to third 
choice, but be feces an SFA 
disciplinary committee tomor- 
row following bis sending-off 
against Hibernian. 


Aberdeen have become sec- 
ond favourites for the champ- 
ionship after a comfortable 2-0 
win at Pittodrie over Hamilton 
Academicals, with Stark scoring 
both goals and Connor, trans- 
ferred from Dundee days earlier, 
providing promising touches. 
Hamilton, who are still without 
a point, are finding life in the 
premier divisison just as diffi- 
cult as they had anticipated and 
so are Falkirk, tire other new- 
comers, who were beaten 1-0 by 
Heart of Midlothian at 
TynecastJe, Watson scoring in 
toe 84th minute. 

Hibernian have faltered after 
their dramatic win over Rangcra 
and they were beaten 3-0 by 
improving Dundee. The new- 
comers, Ferguson, from Rang- 
ers. and Angus, from Aberdeen, 
were in fine form, both scoring. 
Harvey was the other 
marksman. Yet another late 
goal, a penalty scored by 
Walker, enabled Motherwell to 
draw 1-1 with St Mirren. 


Tottenham close 
in on Gough 


Richard Gough, the Dundee 
United defender, was expected 
to sign for Tottenham Hotspnr 
last night to- a fee of around 
£650,000. With the two dubs 
haring agreed a price for the 
Scotland international, ft only 
remained for the player to agree 
t erm s with the Loudon dob. 

Capped 26 times, Gough, aged 
24, played in all three of 
Scotland's World Cop 
this summer where be 
impressed David Pleat tire 
Tottenham manager, who was 
working in Mexico as a tele- 
vision commentator. 

Gough’s last match to Dun- 
dee United was Saturday's 3-2 
win over Glasgow Rangers at 
Ibrox. Graeme Souness, the 
Rangers manager, had also been 
keen to sign the versatile defend- 
er, bat United were reluctant to 
sell to another Scottish dnb. 
Consequently, Souness turned 


his attentions to Terry Butcher, 
tiie Ipswich and England centre- 
half (and Tottenham' s summer 
target) and the English dub 
turned their attentions north of 
the border.. 

Born in Stockholm, ft a 
Swedish mother, Gough- was 
broug h t up in Sooth Africa. He 
moved to Scotland in 1980 and, 
alter being turned down by 
Rangers, signed to Dundee 
United. He wfl] be tire second 
member of the Gongh family to 
play in London — his father, 
Charlie, played to Charlton. 

Tottenham lar k ed a top-class 
defender last season and Gough, 
together with another new sign- 
ing, Mitchell Thomas, the for- 
mer Luton fall-hack, would 
undoubtedly strengthen then- 
attempt to win the first division 
title: All being well be should 
make his debut in the opening 
match at Aston Villa next 
Saturday. 


CARRIAGE DRIVING 


Team and individual domination by Dutch 


After five days of happy, 
friendly competition on Ascot 
racecourse and in Windsor 
Great Park. Tjerd Velstra, the 
Dutch champion, has regained 
the world championship, which 
he lost to Laszlo Jubasz. of 
Hungary, in 1984. 

Velstra and Ijsbrand 
Chardon. his team-mate, won 
the team gold medal for the 
Netherlands by 35 points from 
Hungary. 

Theo WeusthofT. the third 
member of The Netherlands 
team, whose score was not 
needed since only the best two 


By a Special Correspondent 


count confirmed the decisive 
Dutch victory by finishing sev- 
enth of the 41 starters from 
twelve nations. 

Hungary have the team silver 
medal on the strength of the 
scores of their two ex-world 
champions, Lazio Juhasz and 
Gyorgy Bard os. who finished 
third and fourth respectively, 
and the team bronze medal went 
to West Germany. 

The United States team relied 
on the scores of Mrs De indie 
Pine and William Long, driving 


Finn Caspersen's horses, since 
their third member injured him- 
self while walking the course just 
before the first competition, and 
finished in fourlh place ahead of 
Great Britain. The British team 
suffered misfortune when 
George Bowman had to retire 
from the marathon with a horse 
apparently suffering from colic. 

The Duke of Edinburgh was 
in sixth place after his presenta- 
tion and dressage but dropped 
to 20th after a steady trouble- 
free marathon. Pieter Mum and 
Alwyn Holder carried British 


hopes in Bowman's ab- 
and finii 


team 

sence and finished 19th and 21st 
respectively. Mark Weston, the 
youngest British competitor, 
competing as an individual with 
new horses ibis year, saved 
Britain's reputation by finishing 
twelfth, ahead of many more- 
experienced drivers. 

This has been a happy, well 
run championship in which only 
the performance of the British 
team has been below average. As 
host nation we seem courteously 
to have conceded the laurels to 
our guests.

HOCKEY 

Irish continue 
to spring 
surprises 

Amsterdam (Beater) — The 
reigaiug champions. The 
Netherlands, book control of 
their group in the women's 
World Cop yesterday, while h 
the other pool the awfanded 
Irish continued to 


surprises. 

Sophie von Wefier scored 
three brilliant goals as the 
Dutch, holders of the Olympic 
and European crowns as weft 
beat RngianH 5-1 and went a 
point dear of Australia, their 
nearest Pool A rivals. 

Bat in Fool B Ireland followed 
np their draw yesterday with 
West Germany, the Olympic 
stiver medal winnexs, by bolding 
the powerful Soviet team to a 
Hi rilling 3-3 draw. The Irish 
went a goal down in jnst 10 
seconds without so much as 
touching the ball bat bounced 
back through penalty corner 
goals from Mary Barnwell to 
lead briefly before Natella 
Kraa nikg v a levelled the scores. 

Early in the second half 
Caroline Fasco put Ireland in 
front again but as the game drew 
(0 a dose Krasnticova scored a 

sdo goal to and ensae tbe draw. 

The end of the second round 
saw the Soviet Union heading 
Pool B with New Zealand in 
second place, while West Ger- 
many, with many world-class 
players ie their side, lay second 
from bottom. 

The United States, who cap- 
tured the bronze medal at the 
Olympic Games, compounded 
their defeat by the Russians by 
losing 2-1 to the physical New 
Zealanders, thus anchoring 
themselves in bottom place. 

Canada were the mdocky side 
of the day, dictating their game 
Australia for long pm- 
but losing to two fijit-half 
penalty comer goals scored 
the ran of play by 
Dement. 


High price 

The £200.000 transfer tag on 
Imre Varadi, the West 
Bromwich Albion .forward, has 

forced Sheffield United out of 

the bidding. 


CYCLING 

Hinault is 
ready to 
make his 
attack 

From John Wilcockson 
VaU, Colorado 

Going into yesterday's crucial 
lime-trial op tiie vail Pass. 
9.500 feet up in the Rocky 
Mountains, the Coors Inter- 
national Classic was developing 
into a battle between Greg 
LeMond and Bernard Hinauli. 
the Tour de France protagonists, 
and .Andrew Hampsten. 

The overnight race leader, 
surprisingly, was Jeff Pierce, 
aged 28. from California, who 
turned professional less than 
two months ago. Pierce took the 
lead on Friday when he was one 
of 14 riders who gained four 
minutes on the main field at the 
end of die so-called Tour of the 
Moon stage at Grand Junction. 

It wasa tactically fought stage, 
controlled by the Levi's team of 
Anderson and Hampsten and 
Red Zinger team of LeMond 
and HinaulL The big losers were 
the former joint race l ea d er s. 
Doug Shapiro, of the 7-Eleven 
team and Dag-Otto Lauritzen, 
of Norway — neither of whom 
could follow the pace set by 
Hampsten and LeMond on the 
second ascent of the aptly- 
named Cold Shiveis Hill in the 
lunar-type landscape of the 
Colorado National Monument 
Park. 

On Saturday, Raul Alcala 
defeated Steve Bauer, of Can- 
ada. to win the 60-mile eighth 
stage at the delightful Alpine 
resort of Aspen. The Mexican, 
aged 22, began a spectacular 
chase six taps from the end of 
the 30-lap raced to bridge a 70- 
second gap to a strong five-man 
break, and then attacked with 
Bauer on the circuit's one climb. 

Pierce retained his overall 
lead, but Hinault was only five 
seconds behind and threatening 
10 add the red-and-white Coors 
Classic leader's jersey to his 
collection of yellows and pinks 
from five victorious Tours de 
France and three tours of Italy. 

In the women's section of the 
race, Jeannie Longo, the world 
champion, of France, was hold- 
ing a strong lead after only 90 
miles of raring. Two second 
places and a victory in the 
Aspen stage put her more than 
one minute ahead of Maria 
Canins, the Italian, and recent 
winner of the Tour de France 
Feminin, while Marianne 
Berglund, of Sweden, and Inga 
Thompson, of the United 
States, were the only others in 
contention.The best of the four 
British ridexs has been dare 
Greenwood, from Cardiff, who 
was holding 14th place, just over 
four minutes behind Longo.

RUGBY UNION 


New Zealand’s 
rebels are 
back in the fold 




By Paul Martin 


Tea of Ihe New Zealand squad 
which toured Sooth Afria this 
year in defiance of (heir own 
Union and of the International 

Rngby Board have been selected 
for tira second international 
against Australia this Saturday. 

They will coastitnte the entire 
forward pack, together with two 
of the backs. Gaig Green, who 
scored three tries in 
Canterbury's 30-10 win over the 
Australians oa Saturday, and 
Warwick Tayto, a centre. The 
forwards are Gary Knight* Hika 
Reid, Steve McDowell, Murray 
Piewe, Gary Whetton, Jock 
Hobbs (who captained the team 
three times against the Spring- 
boks), Alan Whetton, Murray 
Pierce and Wayne Shelford. 

Their incfostai is causing 
concern, . even alarm, within 
world rngby, raising as H does 
the possibility lhat some nations 
may withdraw from the inaugu- 
ral World Cup in New Zealand 
and Australia next year rather 
than compete against the 
“rebels". 

A number of Third World 
nations may now come under 
political pressure not to cake 
their long-awaited place in the 
rugby limelight. In the British 
Isles, doubts ova* whether to 
taite part have surfaced most 
forcefully in Ireland, where a 
division of opinion exists drat 
largely pits those from Eire 
against the N o rt he r n ers. Many 
English and Scottish rugby 
representatives are also in a 
quandary. 

The return of the "rebels’* has 
distressed Mr Harry 
McKibbena, who as chairman of 
the IB's emergency committee 
had been charged with in- 


vestigating the circumstances 
surrounding the unauthorized 
tour. "It has rendered our work 
almost pointless,” he said. 
There was universal surprise at 
the lightness of the t*o*match 
ban imposed on the players 
earlier this year as punishment 

for touring South Africa, and at 
the continued role of Cofin 
Meads, who managed the rebel 
team, as one of the three 
national selectors. ■ 

However, New Zealand's 
rugby president, Mr Ross 
Thomas, maintained that* the 
players could stifl be hatred 
from future internationals. He 
insisted that an investigation 
into whether die players had 
breached their amateur status 
was still being "actively 
pursued”. The NZRFU wit ( 
asking players to provide them’ 
with more information than was 
contained in their original writ- 
ten statements. 

It is the prospect, however 
remote, of further disciplinary 
action, that is being hehl out by 
World Cnp organizers as a good 
reason for rugby nations to 
vrithold judgement. Mr John 
KendaU-Gurpenter. of England, 
who has jnst returned from the 
Antipodes on a World Cup 
mission, said the two-match 
suspension should be seen as 
”an hors d 'oeuvre” before what 
he hoped would be the main 
meal — banning if found guilty of 
profess kmalism . He said the 
New Zealanders woe having to 
move "gingerly'* to fear of legal 
writs by the players.

YACHTING 


Indulgence pressed 
by Frontrunner 


By Barry PickthaU 

Following their impressive 
win in the first inshore race for 


the Three-quarter Ton Cup in 
Totfray, Graham Walker and his 
crew continued to make the 
front running in the long- 
offshore race from Torquay. 

Indulgence, the Daniel And- 
rieu-designcd yacht, was first to 
round Wolf Rock lighthouse 
guarding the Stilly Isles yes- 
terday. However, with Front- 
runner, the Danish entry, 
second, closely followed by 
Robert Bottomley's DecosoL 
the outcome for double points 
of this 335-mile race taking the 
fleet back to Plymouth before 
heading up Channel to round 
EC1... midway between Poole 
and Cherbourg and turning back 
to Torquay, is still far from 
decided. 

The lighthouse keeper, who 
reported light north-easterly 
winds, opposed to the Wester- 
lies still blowing off Torquay 
yesterday, timed the leaders 
around 105 minutes ahead of 
Applecore arid Smoky Bear, the 
British tafl-enders. 

Better placed was Tony 
Fitton's Scenario, in sixth place. 


but other home-based boats- 
were less impressive. 

The aptly-named Frontrun- 
ner, one of nine almost identical 
production yachts designed by 
Niels Jeppesou, the Danish 
skipper, had been judged above 
the line at the start of Friday’s 
first race, but was later re- 
instated to second place after the 
international jury cast doubts 
on the race officer's derision 
after hearing inconclusive ev- 
idence from the spotter position 
at the leeward end of the line. 

Frontrunner failed to answer 
the recall and had a penalty been 
incurred this- would have cer- 
tainly blighted their chances of 
winning. But now this highly 
competitive “works crew” stand 
a good chance of repealing their 
recent success at the One Ton 
Cup. 

• Roger et Galiet, the 75-foot 
French catamaran skippered by. 
Eric Loizeau, capped a success-' 
fill week’s raring in the 
Southampton mulUhufi grand 
prix on Saturday by further 
improving their record by 27 
seconds for rounding the Isle of 
Wight to 3hr42min OSsec. 


TENNIS 


Becker finalist again 


Toronto (Reuter) — Boris 
Becker, playing an unusual base- 
line game, defeated Jonathan 
Canter, an unseeded American, 
7-6. 7-6 in Geneva on Saturday 
to advance to the final of the 
Player's International 
Championship. It is Becker's 
second final in two weeks, 
having lost in straight sets to 
Ivan Lendl, the top-ranked 
Czech, in a Grand Prix tour- 
nament in Vermont 

In the other semi-final Stefan 
Edberg. the in-form Swede, 
crushra Christo Steyn, the un- 
seeded South African, 6-1, 6-2 in 
just 50 minutes. 

Only two hours before, Steyn 
had beaten Kevin Curren, the 
No 15 seed, 7-6, 7-6 in a quarter- 


final match postponed from the 
previous day because of 
thunderstorms. Those earlier 
exertions dearly contributed to 
the downfall of Steyn. who at 
one stage lost 16 points in 
succession. 

Edberg. the 20-year-old 
Australian Open champion, has 
failed to defeat Becker on any of 
the last three occations they 
have met. But they ha ve afl been 
closely contested affairs and he 
said: “I am in good shape now 
and if I play well I can beat 
him.”

Old firm in final 


Manhattan Beach (AP) — 
Martina Navratilova and Chris 
Lloyd moved smoothly into yet 
another final confrontation in 
the S250.000 (£180.000) Vir- 
ginia Slims tournament in Los 
Angeles. 

Miss Navratilova, the top 
seed, scored a 7-6, 6-1 victory 
over Helena Sukova, the fifth 
seed from Czechoslovakia, 
while Mrs Lloyd quickly strode 
past Pam Shnver, her fellow 
American, 6-4, 6-4, Only Miss 
Navratilova had any difficulty 


securing victory as Miss Sukova 
missed five break points in the 
eighth game of the first set. But 
then the world No 1 hit her best 
form in the tie-break for a 7-2 
win and then used her serve- 
and-volley game to devastating 
effect in the final set. 

Mrs Lloyd, however, contin- 
ued to show her mastery over 
Shriver, the fourth seed, hitting 
a stream of winners from the 
baseline as she moved through 
to. meet Miss Navratilova in yet 
another confrontation between 
the world’s two top players.

SCALES OF JUSTICE (JTV,

British television, senior 
senring judges have been seen 
but not neanL Not that Lord 
Terapieman sticks his neck out 
tonight. He denies teat judges 
are s o metim es used by

and does not accept teat they 
always decide in favour of 
grinding the feces of the poor. If 
It Is controversy you're after, 
you wfl find a flavour of it in what 
two tamer Recorders have 
tosay. One alleges teat the 
reason he was not made* 
judge was that he was an Irish 
Cateofic, and teat he got tee 
of the downward thumb

other believes she failed 
because she was a woman, and 
was thought to tM a mffitant 
to boot The prize for the 
programme's most simplistic 
judgment must Surely go to the 

former judges' marenal who, 
criticizing judges for their 
remoteness, asks 
rhetorically: "How do you know 
what reality is like when you 
wear a black tie for dinner every 
evening ?". 

• The other wince-causing 
comment on TV tonight comes in

documentary about American 
BOkfiers being knocked into

•There's no end to tee 
ambition of tee playwright Peter 
Barnes, creator of Barnes'

monologues, then the 
duolo gues. Now it's tee trios, 
and AFTER THE FUNERAL 
(Radio 3, 930pm) is the first of 
them, if we ever reach tee 
quartet stage. Radio 3 wU 
probably run out of cash 
because only Bg Names are 
thought fit to be Barnes' 

People. Tonight, it's Sean 
Connery. John Hurt, and 

Donald Pleasence, playing three 

rogues who look back on a

Onus on Botham 


to perform like 


a conquering hero 


By John Woodcock 
Cricket Correspondent 


Ian Botham is back. Per- 
haps partly in deference to 
public demand, he has been 
included in the England team 
for the third Test match 
against New Zealand, spon- 
sored by Comhill and starling 
at The Oval on Thursday. 
Lamb also returns, and Gooch 
has been retained despite his 
unavailability for the Austra- 
lian tour. More surprisingly, 
the selectors have allowed 
themselves Willey again. 
Moxon. Pringle and Thomas 
arc dropped. 

The general impression will 
be that it looks more like an 
England side than some of the 
recent ones. Obviously 
Botham's presence has a lot to 
do with this. It is up to him 
now to show what he can still 
do. No doubt he will be 
cheered like a conquering hero 
when he comes out to bat or is 
called on to bowl. It will be 
splendid if he can perform like 
one. The very prospect should 
fill the ground. 

The side is a proper com- 
pliment to the New Zealand- 
ers. Priority has been given to 
beating them. Only Athey. 
French and Small have played 
fewer than 20 Test matches. 
The 12 players have won over 
450 caps between them, and 
they contain three England 
captains. The average age is 
30. 

To judge by the runs he has 
been scoring for North- 
amptonshire. Lamb has bene- 
fited from his break away 
from the Test scent Before 
being dropped during the 
senes against India he had 
scored 285 runs in 11 first- 
class innings at an average of 
26. Since then he has scored 
856 runs in only one innings 
more at an average of 95. 
Being left out may well have 
been the spur he needed. The 
regular members of the side 
get so much Test cricket these 
days that they do tend to take 
it all for granted.

being left high and dry — 
perhaps 30 not out but with- 
out a partner. The alternative 
was to hang on to Pringle, or. 
as I had hoped, to give a 
chance to de Freitas or Cape! 
(if he really looked the part for 
the TCCB XI Iasi week). 
Willey has to be seen now as a 
candidate for Australia, where 
they may think that he would 
come in useful at “the bits and 
pieces." like blocking up an 
end in the one-day games. 
That was the idea in West 
Indies, though it never quite 
worked ouL 

Unless Botham is to be 
given the new ball,, to the 
exclusion of Small or Dilley, 
or the pilch looks very dry, 
either Edmonds or Emburey 
will find himself doing the 
drinks on Thursday. The 
choice of Dilley confirms his 
present rating, which puts him 
ahead of Foster and Thomas. 
Whether all three go to 
Australia, as well as Small, 
will depend on the number of 
fast bowlers to be taken, either 
three or four. Foster is doing 
himself no harm at the mo- 
ment. picking up a lot of 
wickets for Essex. 


In standing by Athey. who 


will go in first, and giving 
Willey another game, the 
selectors are at least being 
consistent They seem deter- 
mined to ■ take Athey to 
Australia, and no doubt they 
will do if he can give the 
innings a sian against Hadlee. 


He will be Gooch's fifth 
different opening partner in 
six Test matches this summer, 
but they can both be heartened 
by what happened when they 
went in together in the second 
of the one-day internationals 
against New Zealand at Old 
Trafford a month ago. 

England lost their first 
wicket then at 193. and in 
making 142 nol out Athey 
showed just how well he can 
play. He has no sort of a Test 
record, but in giving him 
another chance the selectors 
will have been influenced by 
his workmanlike method and 
two somewhat dubious de- 
cisions he has had recently — 
one in the second Test against 
India, ihe other at Trent 
Bridge last Monday. 

England's No 6 at Trent 
Bridge was Pringle. Their 
number seven at The Oval 
will be Willey, presumably to 
reduce the risk of Botham 


If this England side fails, as 
most of the others have this 
season, then we really shall 
know we are bad. Some 
mercurial selecting has 
contributed to several perfor- 
mances in the Iasi two and a 
half months that have been 
horrendous even allowing for 
the fact that India and New 
Zealand are no longer the 
push-over they sometimes 
used to be. This time Gatling 
can have few complaints with 
the side he has been given. 

The case for omitting 
Gooch has been resisted, and 
Botham will be on his mettle. 
By choosing Botham the selec- 
tors have transferred the pres- 
sure from themselves to him. 
His many supporters wil) 
expect the world of him. more 
than is fair I fancy. His 
bowling figures since his 
suspension ended — two for 
263 in 57 overs — are scarcely 

auspicious: yet he is within a 

single wicket of equalling Den- 
nis Lillee’s Test record of 355. 
His hitting has been phenom- 
enal There will be high drama 
at The Oval, weather 
permitting.

James wins after play-off 


By Mitchell Platts 


Mark James holed a putt of 
IS feet for a birdie at the first 
extra hole to overcome Hugh 
BaiocchL of South Africa, and 
Lee Trevino, of the United 
States, in a sudden-death fin- 
ish to the Benson and Hedges 
International Open on the 
FuJford course in York 
yesterday. 

James, who had missed a 
chance from three feet to win 


the title on the 18th bole, 
earned £30,000 for his first 
victory on English soil since 
he became a professional in 
1976. Baiocchi was first to 
putt at the opening extra hole, 
but after be had missed from 
20 feet so Trevino left his putt 
short from a similar distance. 

Trevino and Baiocchi, who 
each started out two strokes 
behind James (70), both com-

totalled 274, which is 14 under

nior finished strongly with 
three birdies in the last four 
holes to complete a 71 which 
was one shot too many for 
him to be involved in the play- 
off 

Trevino was first to finish, 
setting the target, but Baiocchi 
matched his total so leaving 
James requiring a birdie at the 
long 18th to win. 

Trevino, visibly dis- 
appointed, had failed to make 
progress over the last six boles

quence of four birdies in six 
holes from the seventh. He 
was also involved in a fair 
amount of drama at the last

shot from out of the trees 
across the fairway. The ball 
struck a spectator and laid out

lucky break for Trevino be-

unable to get up and down

moved through the field with 
an exciting outward half of 32,

dropped a shot at the long

of a two from six feet at the

Mansell 

has 

to walk 
home 


By John Blunsden 

Alain Prost climbed to 
within two points of Nigel 
Mansell the world champion- 
ship leader, yesterday by win- 
ning the Austrian Grand Prix 
at Zeltweg, a high-speed race 
run in such intense heat that 
car after car had to be 
abandoned. 


Frost's Marlboro McLaren- 
TAG was the only car to 
complete the 52 laps, Michele 
Alboreto’s Ferrari leading the 
distant chase to the chequered 
flag more than a lap in arrears. 
With Stefan Johansson taking 
third place, it was by far the 
best result of the season for 
Ferrari. 

It was also the best day yet 
Id the relatively short career of 
Carl Haas's team of Lola- 
Fords, who picked np their 
first championship points, 
with Alan Jones and Patrick 
Tam bay alarming fourth and 
fifth places respectively. 

For several other teams, 
however, it was a desperately 
disappointing race. Hopes had 
been high at the start for 
Benetton, for whom Teo Fain 
bddalmed pole position. 

At the start Berger shot 
straight into the lead to the 
delight of the Austrian crowd, 
and with Fabi tucked in behind 
him they quickly outpaced the 
rest of the field, led by Prost 
and Mansell, who

Now it was Prost and Keke

The fastest race lap was to be 
poor compensation for such a 
promising performance. 

Berger’s stop put Mansell 
into the lead but Prost, who 
had stopped for tyres on lap 
22 , went to the front when 
Mansell made his own stop six 
hips later.

Nelson Piquet, the winner of 
the previous two grands prix, 
was not proving a match for 
Mansell this time, and he was 
a distant fourth even before he 

brought his Williams- Honda 
in for its first stop after only 18 
laps. Soon after half distance 
Piquet was at his pit again, 
tills time to retire. 

With Ayrton Senna having 
abandoned his JPS Lotus with 
a persistent misfire, and Pi- 
quet gone, Mansell looked 
well set to reinforce his 
championship claims, bet at 
the end of 33 laps he passed 
the pits with a rough-sounding 
engine, not to reappear; he 
parked his car at the side . of 
the track and walked home. 


It was a dismal day for the 
Brabham team. Trouble with 
two cars during the morning 
warm-up meant that Rkcardo 
Patrese took over Derek 
Warwick's car. 


He was slow off the grid and 
one of the first retirements,

Donkova’s rise 



From Fat Butcher, Athletics Corespondent, Cologne 
It did not need a crystal ball ran 1 137. before comi 


to see that Jordanka Dankova, 

of Bulgaria, was goma to brrak 

the 100 metres hurdles world 
record soon. But to break it 
twice inside an hour here 
yesterday simply emphasized 
her current pre-eminence m 
an event in which she was not 
even national record-holder a 
month ago. 

That accolade belonged to 
Ginka Zagorcheva, who was 
second yesterday. But, after

heat, and there was a slight

wards: “I knew then that ifibe 
weather stayed the same 1 
could do even better." And 
even a 0.40 metres per second

stop her taking the record 
even further • down. Miss 
Donkova will not run again 
until the European champion-

1236 seconds 

in the heat. Miss Donkova 
took the record to 12.29 in me 
final, winning by three metres 
from Miss Zagorcheva. 

Miss Donkova first came to 
prominence in 1982 when she 
set four national records, the 
best of which was 12.44 
seconds, and finished second 
in the European champion- 
ships, and seventh in the 
pentathlon, ’ at which she 
scored a creditable 6,187, m 
1983. But her hurdling lan- 
guished in that and the follow- 
ing year because of severe 
knee problems. These she has 
had since since 1 980 and they 
her lime down to 13.24 sec- 
onds last year, good enough 
for only 50th place in the 
world. Meanwhile, Miss 
Zagorcheva had taken the 
Bulgarian record with 12.42 
seconds. 

Miss Donkova retrieved the 
national record with 12.40 at 
the Goodwill Games in Mos- 
cow just over a month ago, 
one of only four competitions 
that Miss Donkova had at the 
beginning of the season. She 
then went back into training 
and emerged in this last week 
with the will and tire form to 
do even better. She ran 12.38 
seconds in Budapest last Mon- 
day, 1136 in Vienna last 
Wednesday, equalling Miss 
Rabsztyu’s record in Warsaw 
in 1980. Then, in Berlin on 
Friday night. Miss Donkova

time. But sire said that if 

weather conditions were snip, 
for she feels that she can get 
dose to 12.10 seconds. 

It needed those two fine 
runs by Miss Donkova to 
relegate Said Aouita to second 
place in the proceedings in this . 
latest Mobil Grand Prix meet- ! 
ing. But the Moroccan had 
another extraordinary run ra 
the 3,000 metres, even better 
than in Zurich last Wednes- 
day. This time Aouita was 
only 0.13 sec outside Hemy 
Rono's worid record, and this 
is sorely, another case for 
ignoring die crystal ball 

The . initial pace was less 
frenetic than in Zurich, with a 
231.24 first kilometre here. 
The pacemakers had dropped 
out by two kilometres, in 
5.04.75, and only Paul 
Kipkocch was able to stay 
with Aouita, and then only 
until the last fop when the 
Moroccan ran right away, for j 
the third time in 10 days • 
missing a world record by a 
fraction. This time he clocked 
732.23. But. with two weeks

Bndd finds perfect . 


response to Wade 


By Cliff Temple 

Not for the first time, Zola characteristic way, with. Mrs 


Budd managed to end a bleak 
spell in her career m dramatic 
fashion when she outsprinted 
Rimy Wade, the double 
Commonwealth Games gold 
medal winner, over 1,500 
metres at Hendon yesterday in 
the HFC women’s 
international 

It was the dash which did 
not happen ai the Common- 
wealth Games, when Miss 
Budd was declared ineligible, 
and it is quite possible that the 
result in Edinburgh might 
have been different 

It was Mrs Wade, rep- 
resenting Wales in the match 
against England, Poland, and 
Scotland, who was really seek- 
ing the race, and Miss Budd 
(worried, she admitted, after 
her recent poor form) had 
actually sought to switch to 
the 800 metres. Butas she had 
originally been selected for 
that, and then changed to 
1,500 metres, the team' 
management for once was not 
willing to comply with her 
request ' 

But she bore the pressure 
welL After leading in her 


Wade predictably poised ai 
her shoulder, the final Mb* 
seemed about to fell down the 
bock straight when - the 
Commonwealth champion 
moved ahead. But this time, 
Miss Budd was able to. re- 
spond. 

In her. last competitive 
appearance before the Euro- 
pean championships m Stutt- 
gart next week, a poor result 
could have further under- 
mined her confidence and 
raised questions as to whether 
she should still double up at 
1,500 and 3,000 metres. As-i! 
was, her time of 4min 05.56sec 
re-established her as a con* 
tender, while Mrs Wade ran 
her fastest time this season of 
4:07.01.

national one of the other 



highlights was the hurdling Of

wealth title-holder, who

All-the-way British 
inched out at finish 




By Jim Kjuftm 

The would championships 
began on a perfect note at 
Nottingham jyesterday. The 
sun chased away the 
morning's threatening clouds; 
the water conditions were very 
good; and from the first race 
there was drama and excep- 
tional competition in the heats 
of the men's lightweights and 
women's heavyweights. 

The first race— a neat of the 
men's lightweight single sculls 
— ’ brought together three 
exceptional scullers in an 


event in which only one 
)r Fri 


qualifies directly for Friday's 
semi-finals whilethe remain- 
der are. banished to 
Wednesday’s repechages. 

The line-up inducted Peter 
Antonie, of Australia, the 
favourite on form; Raimund 
Haberi, of Austria, who has 
twice been world champion; 
and Bjarne Htang, of Den- 
mark, who also has been twice 
world champion and who 
broke Steve Redgrave, of Brit- 
ain. in this year’s Diamonds' 
at Henley Royal Regatta. 

El tang gave up the ghost 
halfway down the course. 
Haberi, aged 36, - wore the 
Australian down for his first 
defeat of the season in the last 
500 metres. Haberi first won 
this title a decade ago in 
Villach in his native country. 

The other heat winners 
yesterday were an impressive 
Glen Fiona, of United States, 
and a -surprised Mark Emke; 
ofTbe Netherlands. 

Britain's men's lightweight

thriller in which they were
