THE 


Volcanic gas 
kills 1,200 
in Cameroon 



TUESDAY AUGUST 26 1986 




tv- ( 


TIMES 








At least 1,200 people have 
been killed by a cloud of toxic 
gas rising from a volcanic lake 
in north-west Cameroon, but 
some reports have put the 
figure as high as 2,000. Vol- 
canic activity in the area is 
continuing, and unknown 
numbers of survivors [rave 
fled. 

A government commu- 
nique described the leak, from 
Lake Nyos near Wum, about 
200 miles northwest of the 
capital, Yaounde, as a “geo- 
logical catastrophe”, and ap- 
pealed for international aid to 
cope with the disaster. 

At least three villages have 
been overwhelmed. In one the 
entire population is believed 
to have perished. President 
Paul Biya, who toured the 
region on Sunday, has de- 
clared it a disaster area. He 
said at least 1,200 had died 
and 300 survivors were being 
treated in hospitals for gas 
poisoning. 

Rescue teams wearing gas 
masks backpacked cylinders 
of lifesaving oxygen to the 
remote area. 

The sudden leak of gas 
began on Friday, when 
according to rescue officials a 
volcanic eruption in Lake 
Nyos created a fissure which 
released gas to the atmo- 
sphere. 

A doctor at Yaounde's main 
hospital said the victims were 
poisoned by a mixture of gases 
including hydrogen and 
sulphur. 

The symptoms were burn- 
ing pains in the eyes and nose.

coughing and signs of asphyx- 
iation similar to strangulation, 
he said. It was like being 
gassed by a kitchen stove. 

Radio Bamenda reported 
yesterday that gases were still 
escaping from the fissure in 
the bed of the lake, which lies 
in a volcanic crater. 

The Israeli Prime Minister, 
Mr Shimon Peres, who ar- 
rived in Cameroon yesterday 
on a state visit, brought with

him a 16-man medical team 
with respiratory equipment, 
medicine and oxygen tanks to 
treat gas victims. 

The learn leader. Dr Mi- 
chael Weiner, said before leav- 
ing for the-disaster area that he 
understood volcanic activity 
was still continuing. He said 
that bis team would try to set 
up a base outside the contami- 
nated area and to treat casual- 
ties as they were brought out. 

A French medical team and 
a group of chemists specializ- 
ing in civil defence also ar- 
rived in the country yesterday 
to link up with French aid 


workers and firemen stationed 
in Cameroon who had already 
joined relief efforts. 

A further scientific delega- 
tion is to leave Paris today led 
by M Haroun TazieC the 
former Socialist Secretary of 
State for Prevention of Natu- 
ral Disasters. 

M Tazieff the pre-eminent 
French vulcanologist, pro- 
vided expertise to Colombia 
when (he Nevado del Ruiz 
volcano erupted in November 
1985. ■ ! 

In Paris yesterday he said 
that it was unlikely to be 
sulphur dioxide or hydrogen 
sulphide since both are lighter 
than air and would not stay at 
ground level, while their pun- 
gent odour would have 
warned the local population to 
flee. M Tazieff thought the 
leak was likely to have been of 
carbon dioxide, and said he 
had personally been caught by 
clouds of that gas 

“It's literally like being 
knocked out if there is no-one 
to pull you out in time”, he 
said. 

. Britain and America 
pledged logistical support for 
the evacuation of villagers, 
and several Western em- 
bassies in Cameroon have also 
offered assistance. 

Western Cameroon has a 
large number of lake-filled 
volcanic craters. On August 16 
1984 toxic fumes from a lake 
in a volcanic crater in 
Djindoum killed 36 people. 
The lake lies in the same 
mountain chain as Nyos.

Mr Jack Straw: Failed to 
persuade committees. 


Yesterday, Mr - David 
Blunkett, leader of Sheffield 
City Council and chairman of 
the local government commit- 
tee, said that the super coun- 
cils would be set up but the 
question was whether that 
should be coupled with sweep- 
ing away existing regional 
bodies such as those covering 
health and water. 

Speaking on World at One 
on BBC Radio 4, he said: “We 
want to try to streamline local 
government at the same time 
as looking at sensible demo- 
cratic regional structures.” 

He denied that such bodies 
would be Labour-dominated: 
“I don't think we would ever 
dream of trying to gerryman- 
der a situation. We could not 
do it in the South-west or parts 
of the South-east. Obviously, 
there will be major Tory 
domination and that is some- 
thing we would have to take 
account of.” 


From Robert Fisk 

Bahrain 

US-Egyptian naval man- 
oeuvres in the Mediterranean 
and a fieredy-worded report 
in the W 'all Street Journals 
claiming that the Pentagon 
has plans for more bombing 
raids against Colonel Gadaffi, 
have sent a flurry of concern 
through the Arab world. 

President Assad of Syria 
yesterday flew unannounced 
to Libya to confer with the 
colonel and to promise — if 
Libya's official news agency is 
to be believed — to fight 
alongside him if his regime is 
it is again attacked by the US. 

The five days of US-Egyp- 
tian air and sea exercises, 
some of them off the Libyan 
coast have already been con- 
demned as “openly 
provocative" by Pravda. 
which suggested that they may 
be the prelude to another 
assault on Libya, this time 
involving Egyptian forces. 

It was probably not by' 
chance that Mr Vladimir 
Petrovsky, the Soviet Deputy 
Foreign Minister, turned up in 
Cairo for talks with Egyptian 

The United States believes 
Colonel Gadaffi is plotting : 
new terrorist attacks and has 
completed plans for a second 
and heavier air strike on

said yesterday in a prominent 
front-page article (Michael 
Binyon reports from Wash- 
ington). Targets could inclode

officials as the first Egyptian 
naval vessels put to sea. 

The Syrians certainly seem 
to have taken the manoeuvres 
seriously. President Assad, 
speaking in Benghazi, sug- 
gested that his country would 
itself take offensive action 
against the Americans if they 
again attacked Libya. Yet bis 
rhetorical warning, as re- 
corded by Jana, the Libyan 
news agency, will probably 
lead US officials to regard it as 
something less than a threat 
“Syria and Libya are in the 
same trench in the struggle 
against the hostile imperialist 
plots which are directed not 
only against Libya but against 
the entire Arab nation,” Presi- 
dent Assad was quoted as 
saying. 

“In case of a new (US) 
attack on Libya, Syria will 
shoulder its full responsibility 
and fight it as if it were 
directed against Syria itself” 


• Birmingham’s first attempt at hold-

Volcano’ 

From Pearce Wright 
Vienna 

Earlier descriptions of the 
disaster at the Chernobyl 
atomic power station palra 
into insignificance yesterday, 
when Soviet scientists showed 
for the fust time a video 
recording of what it was like to 
look straight down the throat 
of a nuclear volcano. 

Taken from a helicopter 
when the crisis was at its peak, 
the film showed a charcoal- 
blackened crater, at the bot- 
tom of which was a fearsome 
red furnace that had once been 
the number four nuclear re- 
actor of lhc largest atomic 
power station in the world. 

The awesome view of the 
power station was the back- 
drop to a remarkable intro- 
duction to a report on the 
accident from the head of the 
Russian delegation. Professor 
Valery Legasov, at a meeting 
of more than 500 technical 
experts from 50 countries. 

He began by widening the 
issue of nuclear safely far 
beyond those methods asso- 
ciated with the Chernobyl 
disaster. 

He invited “criticism and 
constructive ideas” to get out 
of the mess the Russians were 
in. 

He said: “The Chernobyl 
accident was a disaster for our 
citizens. It was a material and 
moral loss that is still distort- 
ing the current economic and 
scientific activity of many of 
our organizations." 

But he then stressed that not 
only the Soviet Union, but the 
rest of the world, was depen- 
dent upon an expansion of 
nuclear energy. Without it any 
prospect of industrial growth 
after the year 2000 was a pious 
hope. 

He said: “Without nuclear 
encigy we cannot master the 
next stage in our economic 
and technological develop- 
ment." 

Professor Legasov said: 
“The world of nuclear energy 
brings many dangers of an 
international character: trans- 
boundary releases of radi- 
ation. the danger of the 
distribution and proliferation 
of nuclear weapons, and inter- 
national terrorism and the 
threat of damage to nuclear 
power plants in a time of war. 

“The saturation of the 
world with so many types of 
dangerous industrial installa- 
tions makes conditions in 
which war is not permissible." 

He said the Russians had 
weighed up the potential risk 
and the potential long-term 
effects on health of an escape 
of radioactivity. “Our country 
has chosen a strategy for an 
accelerated development of 
nuclear energy." 

He maintained that the 
reasons were “absolutely com- 
pelling".

nobyl accident, his team

British tax 
incentives 
rival best 
in world 

By David Smith 
Economics Correspondent - 

Britain is the finest “pure” 
tax haven in the world, offer- 
ing incentives at least as good 
as those of the Cayman Is- 
lands or Luxembourg, the 
Economist Intelligence Unit 
says in a report. 

Xt says that Britain semes 
better than most tax havens, 
because its range of tax and 
f franrigl incentives available 
is so vast. 

‘The UK his been used as a 
tax haven by knowledgeable 
foreign business people for 
many years in order to shelter,

Labour’s black sections 


Dispute risk to Hattersley 


Intense last-minute lobby-

tersley by both sides in a 
dispute that could seriously

the two men who were ex-

month's party conference. 

The dispute, over the expul- 
sion of two Sparkbrook 
constituency members, is rap- 
idly becoming a cause cefebre 
on the Labour Party's left 
wing. 

Activists claim that the 
expulsions were to silence 
demands in Sparkbrook, 
where 60 per cent of the 
Labour membership is Asian, 
for special party sections for 
blacks only and to rid the 
constituency of critics of its 
leadership. 

Labour’s national -leader- 
ship is opposed to the creation 
of black sections and Mr 
Hattersley has condemned 
them as political “apartheid”. 

Moderates say the con- 
troversy is being used by left- 
wing members, inside and 
outside Sparkbrook, to dam- 
age Mr Hattersley’s moderate 
standing in the constituency 
and the party. 

Tonight the Sparkbrook 
constituency party will hold a 
crucial general management 
committee meeting. 

Mr Hattersley's moderate 
supporters will attempt to 
gather their strength to over- 
turn a surprise decision at a 
previous meeting which called 
for the two members, Mr 
Kevin Scally and Mr Amir 
Khan, to be reinstated to the 
constituency party that ex- 
pelled diem. 

The poorly-attended meet- 
ing voted by fifteen votes to 
nine to support a left-wing 
resolution at Labour’s forth- 

Norwegian

have become associated with 
calls for them to be brought 
back into its ranks and ac- 
cused the left - wing of 
“hijacking” the meeting and 
bringing up the reinstatement 
issue by surprise. 

Mr Hattersley has at- 
tempted to stay dear of the 
dispute, bat us supponers 
fear that bis credibility could 
be damaged if it becomes a big 
issue at the party conference. 

About forty constituency 
Labour parties are now 
thought to be supporting the 
reinstatement resolution. The 
Sparkbrook affair is as much 
about the disputed reasons for 
the expulsion of the two men 
as about whether they should 
have been expelled in the first 
place. 

The constituency leadership 
says they were expelled for a 
“calculated public campaign 
designed to damage and dem-

party”. 

Mr Khan was expelled after 
he attacked Mr Hattersley's 
opposition to black sections, 
but Sparkbrook moderates 
said he had foiled to disclose 
that he bad previously stood 
for election as a candidate for 
Socialist Unity, which they 
claimed was a front party for 
Internationa] Marxists. 

Mr Scally was expelled after 
taking party in a Channel 4 
programme, which involved 
the former international 
marxisl Tariq Ali, alleging 
that “corrupt” right wingers 
were running the Sparkbrook 
party and suggesting that false

Roadwork congestion

Drivers who spent part of 
the Bank holiday weekend 
trapped in motorway tailbacks 
caused by roadworks were 
helping the Government to 
save more than £1 million. 

That is what it would have 
cost the Department of Trans- 
port to have stopped work to 
ease congestion on 18 motor- 
ways from the Ml to the 
M275, a department spokes- 
man, Mr David Deas, said 
yesterday. 

“The same problem comes 
up every year. It is essential 
that roadworks are done dur- 
ing the summer months be- 
cause of climatic problems. It 
is impossible to schedule work 
so that it stops over a particu-

period.”

Hoverspeed suffers from old fleet and stiff competition 


By Mark Ellis 

As holidaymakers' cars were taken off the 
Hoverspeed hovercraft crippled by an elec- 
trical fire in the engine room, it emerged 
yesterday that Britain’s only cross-Channel 
hovercraft operator is battling against low 
profits, an ageing fleet and increasingly fierce 
competition from ferries. 

The 17-year-old hovercraft Swift, which 
can cany 278 passengers and 34 cars, was 
stranded in the Channel with 132 passengers 
on board on Sunday, is one of four Saunders 
Roe N4 Mk2 craft owned by Hoverspeed. A 
similar craft. Sure, is surplus to requirements 
and mothballed in Ramsgate. 

Hoverspeed is the result of a merger 
between two loss-making companies, Hover- 


Lloyd, Britain's first private cross-Channel 
hovercraft operators and Seaspeed. a subsid- 
iary of British Rail, which also had a major in- 
terest in the ferry company, Se alink - 

When British Rail sold its interest in 
Sealink to British Ferries last year, British 
Ferries also bought the hovercraft business 
for £5 million. 

Last year Hoverspeed, which also operates 
two SRN4 Mk3 craft which can carry 424 
passengers and 55 cars, reported a pre-tax 
profit of £194,000 and a spokesman said 
profits were expected of between £250,000 
and £500,000 this yearA Hoverspeed spokes- 
man said yesterday that it was not known if a 
decision had been made to replace the 
hovercraft fleet 

Two years ago, on the twenty-fifth anniver- 


sary of cross-Channel hovercraft services, 
experts were ’ predicting that it was on the 
verge of collapse as the business had never 
really been profitable because of its inability 
to compete with freight-canying ferries. 

Hovercraft have been forced to rely on 
seasonal tourist traffic and reasonably good 
weather,- as government safety regulations 
forbid crossings for the smaller craft if the 
mean wind speed is 35 knots or higher and the 
wave height is more than 2.5 metres. The 
limit for the larger craft is 40 knots and 3.5 
metres. 

A Hoverspeed spokesman said that during 
the summer it operated up to a maximum of 
27 round trips a day, which was' reduced to 
eight during the winter, but weather caused 
cancellation of one in 20 trips by smaller craft. 


and. one in 40 for the larger craft. Passengers 
are offered alternative crossings by ferry. 

Townsend Thoresen is the main rival to 
British Ferries on the Channel crossing and 
both have up io a dozen ships sailing from 
Dover.

to Calais for a saloon car and two adults is 
likely to cost £40 to.£60 for ihe car and up to 
£58 for both adults, with (he trip taking 26 to 
40 minutes depending on the weather. By

[ Town chaos as 
5,000 sheep 
abandon ship 

Fishermen in Oban, Argyll- 
shire, had a harbour full of 
wool yesterday after 5,000 
sheep leapt overboard from a 
ferry taking them to market 
from the islands of Tyree and 
CoU. 

They were rescued by local 
people in dinghies and speed- 
boats, and the coastguard was 
called in to help sort out 
problems at the pier. 

Police officers and drovers 
then joined in as the animals 
took off through . crowded 
streets. There was chaos as the 
town centre came to a stand- 
still. Eventually, aU were ac- 
counted for. 

The Oban coastguard said 
yesterday: “In a_way it was 
really quite funny. I suppose 
they thought this was their big 
chance to make their bid for 
freedom.”

Crown guide to Scottish holidays 


Scotland is to introduce 
classified guides to tourist 
services from next year, 
listing about 1,800 different 
kinds of accommodation, 
from camping sites to guest 
houses and leading hotels. 

A crown will be used as a 
symbol io denote the facilities 
available, with five crowns 
being the lop award. 


Mr Eddie Holmes, the Scot- 
land Tourist Board's public 
relations officer, said that 
establishments awarded five 
crowns would offer facilities 
such as cn suite bathrooms, 
lifts and easy access for the 
disabled. 

Food classifies lions will be 
based on quality, ambience 
and service and, instead of 


crowns, will carry one of three 
grades: approved, com- 
mended or highly com- 
mended.

Stoke up 
on water, 
athletes 
are told 

A pre-race glass of water 
could mean the difference 
between a gold medal and 
being an also ran. Britain's 
athletes at the European 
Championships in Stuttgart. 
West Germany, are told 
today. 

When it comes to the Coc- 
Cram confrontation it could 
be the one who last had a 
drink who has the edge, 
particularly if it is hot, Mr 
Peter Beny Ottoway. a sports 
nutritionist, says. 

Mr Ouoway, who earlier 
this year told athletes to forget 
their training steaks and con- 
centrate on pasta and beans 
for energy, gives the advice in 
introducing the report of a 
national symposium on nu- 
trition in sport, which is 
sponsored by the Central 
Council of Physical 
Recreation and Shaklee (UK). 

Water, he says, is the most 
important of all nutrients and 
lack of it causes dehydration. 

“Most of our food produces 
heat, not energy , and wc sweat 
to lose it. If a marathon runner 
did not sweat he would just 
about come to the boil by the 
end of his 26 miles. He loses 
1 almost half a pint of water a 
1 mile in sweat, no matter how 
fast or slow he is.” 

Few athletes realize how 
vital it is and lake precautions, 
he says. A marathon runner 
can lose more than a gallon 
but it takes far less, a pint or 
so, to upset performance. 

“American research has 
shown dehydration can cut a 
miler's speed by 3 per cent. 5 
seconds in a 1 500-metre race, 
and by 6 or 7 per cent in the 
5.000 and 10.000 metres, a 
handicap of half a minute or 
more". Mr Ouoway says. 

Dehydration could explain 
some deaths during jogging, 
he says. It leads to the blood 
becoming thicker.

Land price down by a third 

By John Young, Agriculture Correspondent 


The price of farmland in 
England has fallen by nearly a 
third in the past two years, 
from an average of £4,935 a 
hectare (about £2,000 an acre) 
in June 1984 to £3315 a 
hectare (about £1345 an acre) 
m the corresponding mouth 
t|iis year, -according to the 
latest Ministry of Agriculture 
figures. 

. Tfe drop: wai- by no means 
■ unexpected; the surprise is 
that the bo6m in prices which 
followed Britain’s entry into 
the EEC in 1973 persisted for 
as long as it did. 

It was unrealistic to expect 
fanners to be able to service 
loans of £2,000 an acre or 
more on a net income unlikely 
to exceed £150 an acre, even on 
top-grade arable land. 

Shortage 
of arthritis 
specialists 

By Thomson Prentice 
Millions of arthritis and 
rheumatism victims are being 
denied the services of special- 
ists who could ease their 
suffering, a report says today. 

Thirty health districts in 
Britain have no specialist 
rheumatologist the report 
from the Arthritis and Rheu- 
matism Council says. 

Professor Philip Wood, of 
the council's epidemiology re- 
search unit which prepared 
the' report said yesterday: 
“Seven and a half million 
people are without the ser- 
vices of a specialist in what is 
Britain’s most widespread dis- 
ease. Consultant help is essen- 
tial because it brings relief to 
the suffering of these people.” 

There should be one consul- 
tant per 1 50,000 of the popula- 
tion. he said, in England, toe 
actual rate was one for every 
177.547; in Wales, one for 
every 234.166; in Scotland, 
one for every’ 367.857 - "Tin 
extremely serious position” - 
and in Northern Ireland there 
was only one consultant for 
every 524,233 of the 
population. 

"The real trouble is re- 
sources. and for that the buck 
stops with government.'’ 
Professor Wood said. 

The report is published to 
mark the fiftieth anniversary 
of the Arthritis and Rheu- 
matism Council. 


The artificially high prices 
which prevailed in the late 
1970s and early 1980s were 
stimulated not only by the 
banks' willingness to lend 
money freely on the apparent 
assumption that toe land 
would continue to hold its 
value as collateral, but also by 
the eagerness of fiiMnriei 
institutions, including mer- 
chant banks, pension fends 
and insurance companies to 
acquire what they saw as a 
cast-iron investment. 

Now that a degree of sanity 
appears to have retained to the 
market, toe institutions are 
said to be equally anxkms to 
dispose of their holdings but 
are naturally on wilting to ac- 
cept toe losses involved. 

Their embarrassment at the 

Pregnant 
plea for 
fashions 

Pregnant women are tired of 
bans typecast and having 
their special fashion require- 
ments ignored by most manu- 
facturers and retailers, 
according to a report pub- 
lished today 

Expectant mothers through- 
out Britain described mater- 
nity fashions as “frumpish” 
and underwear as “ugly and 
uncomfortable”, the report by 
the market research company 
Campbell Keegan says. 

Miss Sheila Keegan, who 
wrote toe report, which is 
based on interviews with 100 
pregnant women, said yes- 
terday: “Women have changed 
but manufacturers are still 
approaching than as they did 
toe previous generation. They 
don't all want to dress in pretty 
pastels, wear bras built fike 
Sherman tanks, or be coo-eed 
by advertisers. They are look- 
ing for a bit more 
understanding.” 

The Motoercare chain, 
which has 230 stores .said 
yesterday the report’s 
findingswere unfair. “O ur 
range is certainly not frump- 
ish. Maternity fashions, 
including underwear, are much 
more fashionable compared to 
10 to 15 years ago,” a spokes- 
woman said.

their assets has been com- , 
pounded by the fact that most 
of their fend is tenanted and 
there is little prospect of any 
big increase in farm rents. 

For their part farmers are 
tightening their belts in the 
expectation of falling grain 
prices as a result of world 
surpluses. 

Farmers’ organizations are 
in two minds about what is 
happening. On the one hand, 
they are mdmed to welcome 
toe fall in fend prices as a 
more realistic reflection of 
farm incomes. But, on the 
other hand, they are worried 
about the increasing number of 
bankruptcies among those 
who bought fend at the height 
of the boom, 

2 beaten 
for drug 
refusal 

Two students in Sheffield 
were recovering last night 
after drug pedlars attacked 
them when they refused to buy 
cannabis. 

Mr Paul Burke, aged 20. and 
Mr Lawrence Hegarty. aged 
19. both of Filey Street Shef- 
field. were approached by two 
youths as they returned home 
from a nightclub early on 
Sunday morning. 

When they refused to buy 
cannabis they were punched, 
kicked and battered with a 
brick. Mr Hcgany's nose was 
broken and his face and head 

CUL 

Both men were treated at 
the Royal Hallamshire Hos- 
pital in Sheffield. 

“There was no motive for 
the attack, other than their 
refusal to buy drugs.” the 
police said. They were 
alarmed by the assault which 
may indicate a new readiness 
by drug dealers to use violence 
and intimidation. 

It is the second reported 
incident of people being at- 
tacked after refusing to buy 
drugs. 

Three weeks ago in the same 
area a Miss Clare Blackburn, 
aged 25. was injured when a 
blank-firing gun was dis- 
charged against her stomach 
after she and her boyfriend 
refused to buy drugs from a 
gang of eight youths. 

A youth has been charged in 
relation to the attack.

Restaurant smokers breathe easy 


Most leading restaurants do 
not ban customers from smok- 
ing because complaints from 
non-smoking diners are rare, 
Kcwding to a poll conducted 
for toe Freedom Organisation 
for toe Right to Enjoy Smok- 

TP -i rwr. 


The Forest poll, held to 
determine public support for 
demands from anti-smoking 
poops, concludes that smok- 
ing in restaurants in Engl a n d 
*nd Wales is not a great 
problem. 

.According to toe Harris 
foil, of 571 restaurants listed 
m toe 1986 Good Food Guide, 
l *stanrant owners rarely re- 
rebe smolting complaints. 

Among restaurants sampled 
'toere smoking was allowed. 


51 per cent of proprietors said 
that complaints were rare, 41 
percent said that they received 
occasional comments and 7 
per cent thought complaints 
from non-smokers were a 
regular event 

Of toe 571 restaurateurs 
sampled, 65 per cent did not 
operate any smoking restric- 
tions, 27 per cent restricted it 
in parts of the restaurant and 7 
per cent had a total ban. 

Mr Stephen Eyres, Forest 
director, said: “Despite the 
hullabaloo, most restaurant 
owners do not think smolting 
is a major problem. Bnt arti- 
ficial pressure ^whipped up 
by anti-smokers. 

He cited a restaurant in 
Weymouth, Dorset, which 


provided a se parate room for 
aon-smokers. “but only two 
customers used the facility in 
the daytime”. 

Dr Noel Olsen, honorary 
secretary of Action on Smok- 
ing and Health (Ash), said: 
“Only 38 per cent of adults 
smoke. The right of others to 
enjoy clean air should exceed 
the right of smokers to pollute 
ft." 

The British Medical 
Association said: “Last year 
there were about 100,000 
deaths associated with smok- 
ing. Non-smokers are now in 
the majority and people should 
decide for themselves, in toe 
light of these facts, without 
legislation.”

Decisions on 
TV violence 
‘must remain 
with editors’ 

By Gavin Bell, Arts Correspondent 


^Reporters and editors 
should continue to decide 
whether to show scenes of 
horrific violence in television 
news because it would be 
wrong to impose statutory 
guidelines, a panel of broad- 
casters and an MP says. 

The panel at the Edinburgh 
International Television Fes- 
tival reached its conclusion 
yesterday after watching how 
British and American net- 
works edited 10 minutes of 
newsfilm of the disaster at the 
Heysel football stadium in 
Brussels last year. 

Mr Graham Bright Conser- 
vative MP for Luton South, 
was also invited to edit a two- 
minute film of the catas- 
trophe. It emerged as the most 
restrained because be cut two 
scenes of dying fans which be 
rdt went “a little too far”. 

He added, however “I am 
even more adamant now that 
you cannot legislate in what is 
essentially a question of taste 
and judgement 

”7111$ was a traumatic 
experience for me. Editors 
working under pressure obvi- 
ously have to take decisions 
by the seat of their pants. You 
simply cannot have barristers 
hovering around them in such 
situations.” 

Mr Jon Snow, of ITN, said 
he had been disturbed by the 
Heysel film, but that there was 
nothing in the original rushes 
that he would not have shown. 


“There was a desperate 
disaster that had to be re- 
ported and you’ve just got to 
use your expertise and pro- 
fessionalism to tell the story. If 
you deny viewers the opportu- 
nity to judge for themselves 
what's going on you begin to 
sanitize the real world.” 

He added, however, that he 
had seen some “unbelievably 
nasty” scenes in El Salvador 
that he fell he could not 
transmit “There is a set of 
basic responses to such 
things. 71 

Mr Paul Friedman, a direc- 
tor of ABC News, of the 
United States, agreed that, 
given the circumstances of the 
Heysd disaster, he had no 
objection to screening any of 
the scenes. 

He said he was more con- 
cerned about the antiseptic 
view of violence portrayed in 
entertainment programmes, 
in which murder was made 
more acceptable by reducing it 
to the image ofa bloodstain on 
a designer shirt. 

The most cautious broad- 
casting view came from Mr 
Chris Kramer, a BBC news 
editor, who considered certain 
Heysel sequences to be 
unnecessary. 

“It is a fact of life that a 
public Inroadcasting service 
must accept that some images 
they beam into homes ma

The freeport experiment

Southampton's freeport is 
one of the most successful in 
Britain but it is little more 
than an international ware- 
house, not the tax and doty- 
free haven for job-aeating 
manufacturers envisaged by 
its creators. 

A new sign on the approach 
mad to tire zone proclaims: 
“Yon are now leaving the

trade to its European rivals,

Championed by right-wing 
Academics, the freeport con-

the Government, which des- 
ignated six freeports in 1984 in 
Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, 
Liverpool and Prestwick and 
Southampton. 

The idea a! a zone for the 
import, manufacture and ex- 
port of goods free from duty, 
taxes and bureaucracy was 
seen as a stimulant to indus- 
trial growth, bat the induce- 
ments have proved for from 
irresistible. Trade has been so 
slow that Prestwick, Belfast 
and Cardiff freeports are 
considering their future.

Freeports are not free of

goods such as tobacco and

to a promise to pay the duty. 

However, the freeports do 
reap the substantial benefits^ of 
freedom from customs duties

Exam pass 
rates stay 
constant 

Pass rates for A and O level 
examinations show little 
change this year in spite of the 
year-long teachers' pay dis- 
pute which led to thousands of 
children missing lessons and 
receiving no homework (Lucy 
Hodges writes). 

Although some Scottish 
children taking the new Stan- 
dard grade examination were 
penalised by the teachers' 
action and ended up receiving 
a “no-award" certificate, the 
indications are that the rest of 
the United Kingdom re- 
mained relatively unaffected. 

Most of the GCE examina- 
tion boards report that there is 
no significant difference be- 
tween this year's and last 
year's pass rates. Indeed, in 
some cases they are better. 
The Welsh board's pass rate 
for A levels has risen to 73.7 
per cent from last year’s 72.6 
percent. The national average 
is 70 per cent. 

The University of London 
School Examinations Board 
has also shown improvement 
in its A level pass rate, up to 
74.7 per cent from last year’s 
74.5 percent. 


Advisers’ 
role for 
legal 
insurers 

By Frances Gibb 
Legal Affairs 

Correspondent 

Legal insurance companies 
arc making moves to provide 
people with the Mnd of adu« 
Key usually seek from 

W The?r* action comesafier a 
government scrutiny teams 
report on legal.aid 
[hat some advice should no 
longer be provided by 

soliciliofs. . _ . . „ 

The Legal Protection 
Group, a market leader in 
legal expenses insurance, is to 
write io the Lord Chancellor 
urging that such companies 
provide legal advice as well as 
filling the gap which wouMbe 
left S' an. v withdrawal of legal 
aid. 

Mr Brian Raincock, manag* 
mg director of the group, says 
that a key feature of its policies 
24-hc 


is a .w-nour legal advice 

service. , 

It is provided to anyone tor 
a £10 fee- 

**The recent government 
scrutiny report suggests that 
citizens' advice bureaux take 
over much of the advice on 
civil mailers from solicitors. 
We would also like to be part 
of this service.” . 

The company has eight 
solicitors to handle such calls, 
as well as barristers, accoun- 
tants and industrial relations 
experts who will offer round- 
the-clock advice. 

The scrutiny report is being 
seen by legal expenses insur- 
ance companies as an in- 
centive to the private sector's 
role in providing legal 
services. 

It recommended that much 
civil legal advice be trans- 
ferred to the advice agencies 
and that legal aid no longer be 
available for such personal 
mailers as conveyancing and 
wills. 

The Legal Protection Group 
will also provide cover for 
divorce as pan of its family 
policy. The premium is £80 a 
year with a total annual cover 
of £250.000. 

Divorce and its related dis- 
putes on custody and access to 
children and over property, is 
one of the biggest drains on 
the civil legal aid bill. 

Allianz Legal Protection 
which also boasts a 24-hour 
advice service for its policy 
holders, now offers cover for 
criminal prosecutions. 

The legal insurance com- 
panies want to discuss with 
the Law Society the pro- 
fessional practice rules, which 
restrict solicitors from work- 
ing wirh such companies and. 
at the same time, acting 
for members of the public. 

The companies' 24-hour ad- 
vice services could be re- 
garded as being in breach of 
these rules. 

“We would ultimately like 
to employ our own team of 
solicitors to handle the routine 
claims”. Mr Raincock says. 

While the Law Society is 
prepared to establish, its own 
panels of experts, as it has 
done in the case of mental 
health and child care, it is 
likely to take a dim view of 
such panels being assembled 
by outside bodies. 


Free newspapers: 2 


Battle for share of 
advertising cake 


Free newspapers are enjoying a success unparalleled 
since the heyday of the national daily tabloids. Mark 
EUis, in the second of two articles, looks at the 
problems success brings and possible developments for 
the future. 


is 


the 


The phenomenal growth of 
free newspapers is expected to 
reach its peak within a few 
years as the total amount of 
advertisers’ money to be di- 
vided between the media 
stretched to the limit 

In the past decade 

regional press has lost a lot of 
advertising revenue while tele- 
vision and free newspapers 
have captured increasing 
shares of the market 

Advertising Association 
statistics show that between 
1975 and 1984 regional dailies 
lost 6.5 per cent of revenue 
and paid-for weeklies saw 3.7 
per cent* of the total share 
disappear. 

There is little doubt that 
free titles mopped up most of 
that revenue as advertisers 
tried and apparently liked the 
new medium. Bui better 
advertising rates through in- 
creased competition and loy- 
alty to paid-for papers are 
likely to stem the flow. 

Critics challenge some free 
newspapers’ commitment to 
the industry. They make big 
profits, but are said to fail to 
provide staff training courses 
recognized by the printing and 
publishing training boards 
and neglect local papers’ 
fractional role in providing a 
community service. 

Mr Norman Walker, deputy 

director of the Newspaper 
Spciety, which represents 
Britain s regional Press, said: 
“Some free newspapers are 
very- very good and the 
society thinks they arc here to 
stay. 

“Free newspapers are a 
dynamic in the market place 
that cannot be ignored. Thev 
have nor put members out of 
business, but they have 
sharpened up traditional atti- 


tudes and some papers have 
converted to being free.” 

Mr Walker said his society 
was disturbed about develop- 
ments in the property and car 
advertising market, where 
competition is cut-throat.

130-year-old Morning Tcte-

Aid for Cameroon gas victims 

Peres aims to restore ties 


Yaounde (Reuter) — Mr 
Shimon Pens, the Israeli 
Prime ’ Minister, arrived in 
Cameroon yesterday for a 
visit expected to restore dip- 
lomatic ties and, in a goodwill 
gesture, brought aid after a 
disaster said to have killed 
more than 2,000 people. 

On board Mr Peres’s Israeli 
Air Force plane was a 16-man 
medical team to treat victims 
of seeping volcanic gas near 
Lake Nips, about 240 miks 
north-west of Yaounde 
The toxic gas wiped out the 
entire population of a village, 
travellers returning from the 
area said. There 1ms been no 
official death toll issued rinse 
stale radio reported 40 
on Saturday. 

Dr Michael Wiener, head of 
die Israeli team, said before 
leaving for the disaster area 
that they had brought respi- 
ratory equipment, medicine 
and oxygen tanks to treat gas 
victims. A French rescue team 
also arrived yesterday. 

Despite the national dis- 
aster, Mr Peres was greeted by 
huge crowds of singing and 
dancing Cameroonians, many 
wearing traditional grass skirts 
or colorful robes embossed 
with pictures of President 
Biya. 

Mr Peres's highly-publi- 
cized visit, the first by an 
Israeli prime minister to Af- 
rica for 20 years, underscored 
Israel's efforts to regain the 
foothold it lost in Africa when 
29 countries abruptly severed 
relations during the 1973 Mid- 
dle East War. 

Cameroon win be the fourth 
country to -renew ties with 
Israel, following Zaire, Liberia 
and the Ivory Coast, which 
have lifted their boycott since 
Israel returned the Sinai desert 
to Egypt in 1982. 

Mr Peres said that his 
summit with King Hassan of 
Morocco last month had 
prompted President Biya to 
respond to Israel's long-stand- 
ing efforts to renew ties. 

“As far as I know, the 
President made his final de- 
cision to renew relations after

encouraged him,” he said. 

Expecting tough questions 
from President Biya on 
Israel’s close ties with South 
Africa, Mr Peres said his 
country would abide by any 
UN resolution against the 
Pretoria Government. 

“If the United Nations 
makes decisions. Israel will 
adhere to them too,” be said- 
He added that Israel con-

But inland the volcanoes are

Dr Fitton said it was very i 
unlikely the leak could be a 
signal of a coming volcanic . 
eruption. Volcanoes in the I 


tiie poulation dependent on area had not been active in 


agriculture. 

Dr Fitton said the incident 
was similar to a gas emission 
in August, 1984, in which 36 


thousands of years and the gas 
was more likely to be from an 
extinct volcano rather than 
from one becoming active. 


Better off than most West African states 


Weather conditions at Lar- 
ak are a considerable hin- 
drance to ofl loading. Iran has 
I moored a series of “mother 
ships” for oil storage around 
the island, after towing the 
hulks down from Sirri, where 
they were already scattered 
across 60 miles of sea to lessen 
the impact of another Iraqi 
attack. But rough seas and 
tides prevented loading for 
several days at the start of 
operations. 

Indeed, there is now 
speculation among the Arab 
oil states that the Iranians may 
soon abandon loading in the 
Gulf altogether and ferry their 
oil through the Straits of 
Hormuz in their own tankers 
transferring the erode at sea to 
foreign vessels. 

At present, the Iranians are 
believed to .be uring right or 
nine of their own tankers as 
shuttles from Kharg island, 
repairing them after attack. 

According to the Middle 
East Economic Survey, the 
weekly journal of oil and 
banking, Iranian oil exports 
have averaged only 600,000 
barrels a-day since the Sirri 
anadq-atirop of more than 50 
per cent in two weeks, but 
Bahrain oil sources discount 
this figure.

From Michael Binyon

The United States believes 
Libya is about to embark on 
new terrorist actions and must 
be taught another lesson, the 
Wall Street Journal prom- 
inently reported yesterday. 

The Pentagon has therefore 
completed plans for a new and 
larger bombing of Libya in 
case President Reagan orders 
it, the newspaper said in a 
front-page article which quot- 
ed intelligence sources. 

“Growing evidence suggests 
the bombing hasn't ended 
Libyan-sponsored terrorism,” 
the newspaper said. “After a 
lull. Colonel Gadaffi has be- 
gun plotting new terrorist 
attacks. US and West Euro- 
pean intelligence officials say. 
And the Reagan Administra- 
tion is preparing to teach the 
mercurial Libyan leader an- 
other lesson ” 

Officials told the newspaper 
that Libyan involvement was 
found in recent terrorist plots 
in Cyprus and Berlin. 

There were growing signs 
that Libya was expanding its , 
terrorism beyond its People’s , 
Bureaux, and Libyan airline 
offices, cultural centres and 
trading companies in Africa, 
Europe and the Middle East 
bad begun recanting “local 
thugs” to attack US and 
European diplomats and bus- 
inessmen. 

The reports come as the US ( 
and Egypt have begun joint 
manoeuvres.

assembled the most reliable 
data possible about a complex 
situation. They relied on 
“computer modelling” for 
information on many of the 
events after foe accident be- 
cause instruments had been 
destroyed. 

The scientists could only 
recreate the conditions by 
tracing back from measure- 
ments of radioactive release to 
determine events that had 
taken place. 

He said: “We will be grate- 
ful for constructive ideas and 
proposals for limiting foe con- 
sequences of foe accident, and 
for improving foe efficiency of 
decontamination. 

“We are prepared for criti- 
cal and constructive advice on 
the reliability of nuclear power 
plants. We want a discussion 
on why large accidents have 
taken place in nuclear power 
plants and, for that matter, in 
other large technological in- 
stallations.” 

Professor Legasov said that 
while recognizing foe serious- 
ness to the Soviet Union of 
such a great radiation acci- 
dent, it was even more bur- 
densome to foe local people. 

Nevertheless, even such a 
catastrophic event could not 
stop foe further use of nuclear 
energy. He said the Soviet 
Union saw one road ahead. It 
was one of international co- 
operation to improve design, 
construction and operation of 
all potentially dangerous laige 
systems. 

The director-general of the 


International Atomic Energy 
Agency, Dr Hans Blix, who 
had arranged foe meeting, said 
foe gathering was not directed 
at foe public. It was a meeting 
of experts, talking foe lan- 
guage of experts. However, 
next month foe agency would 
hold a conference that would 
pro vide a genera] debate about 
the roles of nuclear power in 
the mixture of energy re- 
sources. 

Dr Blix said: “It is true that 
many of foe lessons to be 
drawn from the accident are 
specific for the type of reactor. 
Nevertheless, an understand- 
ing of foe physical and chemi- 
cal process of the accident wall 
contribute to our common 
fund of nuclear knowledge. 

“There will be many aspects 
of the accident — including , the 
human actions leading to it — 
and of the operations to con- 
tain it that will be directly use- 
ful to the world to learn about 

“In the nuclear as in other 
fields, mankind proceeds and 
progresses by trial and error. 
Considering the consequences 
of errors in foe nuclear field it 
is vitally important that we 
learn from each of them.” 

He said: “The accident at 
Chernobyl has already led to 
the International Atomic En- 
ergy Agency proposing new

mote nuclear safety. Hie first

Basques may 
see violence 
as legitimate 

Madrid — The former presi- 
dent of the Basque Regional 
Government Senor Carlos 
Garaikoetxea, yesterday said 
some Basques might consider 
violence legitimate, since they 
had not been allowed foe right 
of self-determination (Harry 
Debeh'us writes). He said he 
favoured negotiating with Eta, 
claiming “the political solu- 
tion is the only way out” 


may soon boast the country's 
firsl woman leader of an 
important political party. 

Miss Takako Doi filed ha- 
candidacy yesterday and is 
likely to win the leadership 
when the 85.000 registered 
party members vole next 
week. 

Miss Doi. aged 57. who has 
degrees in both English and 
law. owes her unexpected 
chance at the leadership to the 
former chairman. Mr Masashi 
Ishibashi. who resigned to 
improve the party's electoral 


showing in the July polls. 
Then it lost 27 scats to record 
a record low level of 85 in foe 
Diet. 

Miss Doi.an academic turn- 
ed activist, is a Socialist of 
firm conviction and a 
constitutional expert who has 
dedicated her life to politics. 

With the ruling party talk- 
ing of revising the constitution 
to write out some of its liberal 
elements, a victory for Miss 
Doi would come at an oppor- 
tune moment for the Oppo- 
sition. 


Progress on nuclear warning 


From Alan McGregor 
Geneva 

A further step towards set- 
ting up “nuclear risk reduc- 
tion centres” in Moscow and 
Washington has been taken 
with a meeting here yesterday 
between US and Soviet 
delegations. 

A communique from foe 
delegations, beaded by Mr 
Richard Perie, US Assistant 
Defence Secretary, and Mr 
Alexei Obukhov, the Soviet 
negotiator in the strategic 
arms talks, said merely that 
the two sides “have agreed to 
maintain confidentiality with 
regard to these discussions”. 

The concept of the centres is 
such that the two super- 
powers can apply it without 
prejudice to their continuing 
military preoccupations. 

Essentially, it is to supple- 
ment foe hot line emergency 
link between the White House 
and the Kremlin — itself now 
being technically improved — 
with a continuing exchange of 


advance explanatory informa- 
tion on military moves ca- 
pable of misinterpretation.

to have an agreement on 
establishing foe centres, with 
adequate bilingual staff mem- 
bers, ready for signature at the.

Millions of tourists swarm-

Mediterranean beaches this

surprise: the sea isdeaner and 
safer for swimmers than at any 
other time in the past decade. 
What is more, the jellyfish are

Australia locked in nuclear debate 

Aborigines granted 
tests compensation 


Aborigines with links to the 
Maralinga area, where Britain 
held nuclear tests in the 1950s 
and 1960s, are to receive an 
initial compensation payment 
of $Aus500,000 (£200,000) 
from the Australian Govern* 
ment. 

Canberra said the payment 
was in line with the recom- 
mendation of the Royal 
Commission on British Nuc- 
lear Tests in Australia. 

The commission, headed by 
Mr Justice James McClelland, 
last year found that Australia 
should bear the cost of 
compensating Aborigines for 
the dislocation caused by the 


From Stephen Taylor, Sydney 

tests, while Britain should pay 
for the restoration of the 
Maralinga site to a state fit for 
unrestricted habitation. 

Britain has been asked to 
contribute SAusl milli on to 
the cost of studies on how best 
to dean up the site, but has not 
yet responded publicly. 

The payment announced by 
Canberra was said to be for 
roads, communications and a 
water supply for around 450 
Aborigines, who were among 
those displaced by the tests 
but who have since returned 
to their traditional areas 
within 80 miles of the 


contaminated test site. 

A government spokesman 
said the payment was not a 
once-and-for-all settlement. 
Further compensation would 
be considered once the future 
of the range had been decided 
in the light of dean-up 
options. 

An interim report by British 
and Australian scientists who 
made an initial clean-up 
study, will be the basis for a 
government policy statement 
next month by Senator Gareth 
Evans, the Energy Minister, 
who will then take Canberra’s 
position to Loudon for further 
talks. 



Hawke under fire over decision

Pakistan opposition rebuffs Junejo 


From Our Correspondent, Sydney 


Mr Bob Hawke, the Austra- 
lian Prime Minister, yesterday 
began a three-week trip 
around the country to sell his 
Government's austerity bud- 
get which aims to slice $Aus3 
billion (about £1.2 billion) 
from public spending. 

The task will be no small 
test of the Hawke leadership, 
in the face of hostility to 
welfare cuts and the plan to 
discount wage increases by 
about half. 

So far, however, the most 
bitter opposition to the budget 
has come not from the average 
voter, but from the left wing of 
Mr Hawke's Australian Labor 
Party (ALP), which is thor- 
oughly incensed by his plan to 
resume the sale of uranium to 
France. 

In a climate induced by 
French nuclear testing in the 
Parific. the uranium ban has 


been a rallying cry for Labor, 
comparable to Wellington's 
ban on nuclear ships, which 
gave rise to the Anzus dispute. 

The budget announcement 
that this sanction against 
France was being abandoned, 
because it had been ineffective 
and would save SAus66m, 
provoked a furore within La- 
bor which has still to run its 
course. 

The left intends to challenge 
Mr Hawke at a meeting of the 
national executive on Septem- 
ber 12, on the grounds that his 
decision flies in the face of 
party policy, and both the 
Liberal opposition and Labor 
dissidents have started 
questioning his justification 
for pursuing sanctions against 
South Africa. 

A number of state party 
officials are so incensed that 
they have resigned, as has one 


senior Hawke aide. The issue 
is reported to have started a 
braw] at a Labor meeting in 
Queensland at the weekend. 

Passion is not confined to 
the left, however. Mr Bill 
Hayden, the influential For- 
eign Minister who leads a 
centre-left faction, was report- 
edly so upset by the uranium 
proposal that he offered to 
find savings of $Aus66m in 
his own department rather 
than see sales to Paris resume. 

But Mr Hawke has over- 
come the firs: obstacle. The 
Labor caucus in Canberra 
gave its approval by 74 votes 
to 42 after he reportedly 
warned that failure to endorse 
uranium sales along with the 
remainder of the budget pack- 
age would bring down the 
Government-But he is by no 
means out of trouble yet. 


From Hasan Akhter 

Mama ha «l 

The opposition group in 
Pakistan's Parliament, at its 
weekend meeting in Lahore, 
decided to reject the invitation 
issued by Mr Muhammad 
Khan Junejo, the Prime Min- 
ister, to the group’s members 
from the Punjab for exclusive 
talks on the political situation. 

Mr Fakhr Imam, the leader 
of the parliamentary oppo- 
sition group, said on Sunday 
that, while the group appre- 


ciated the Prime Minister's, 
initiative^ it believed that it 
should be extended to all 
opposition members. 

He said the growing de- 
mand by the opposition out- 
side Parliament for mid-term 
polls was a national issue. 

Mr Junejo, who is from 
Sind province, should invite 
members from the three other 
provinces as well, and meet 
the opposition outside Par- 
liament, Mr Imam said. 

He said that the Govern- 


ment was responsible for 
precipitating the present poli- 
tical agitation in Pakistan, led 
by the leaders of the Move- 
ment for Restoration of 
Democracy (MRD), including 
Miss Benazir Bhutto. 

Mr Imam demanded the 
release of Miss Bhutto and all 
other opposition leaders and 
workers who were rounded up 
during the past 10 days and 
whose number is estimated by 
the opposition at about 
10,000. More than 30 people 


were killed in Sind in dashes 
with security forces. 

Mr Imam said the group 
also demanded the with- 
drawal of troops from duty 
with police in Sind and op- 
posed any suggestion of 
imposing a state of emergency 

Meanwhile, Mr Junejo, who 
held a long meeting in Lahore 
with the Punjabi members of 
Parliament, later said that he 
was not prepared to talk to the 
opposition outside Parlia- 
ment. 


Greek officials stop hunt for RAF ‘gold’ plane 


From A Correspondent 
Athens 

Harbour officials on the 
central Greek island of Eu- 
boea yesterday stopped a 
group of treasure hunters from 
searching for the wreckage of a 
Royal Air Force plane that 
may have been carrying a load 
of gold sovereigns. 

A Greek machinist. Mr 


Christos Eleftheriou, aged 51. 
who claims he saw the trans- 
port plane go down in the Bay 
of Oreoi in August 1943, had 
teamed up with a Greek 
underwater researcher. 

But authorities, acting on 
orders from the Ministry of 
Merchant Marine, blocked the 
research vessel Poseidon when 
it tried to leave harbour at 
8 am yesterday. 


Local stories say the RAF 
plane was en route to the 
Middle East with 20 cases of 
gold sovereigns, today worth 
£700 million, when it was shot 
down fry Luftwaffe fighters. 

But the hunt for the gold is 
tangled in bureaucracy. The 
Ministry of Merchant Marine 
last Friday issued an injunc- 
tion blocking the search until 
the Greek Supreme Court 


decides which government 
authority has the right to 
sanction such work. 

Mr Eleftheriou, who says he 
was seven when he watched 
the plane ditch and sink from 
a filling boat 400 yards away, 
had received a permit from 
the Naval General Staff and

An extraordinary row be- 
tween a radical priest and a 
conservative cardinal has ex- 
posed a glaring East-West 
anomaly in Bertia- 
The root of the present 
conflict is that the Catholic 
Chmte, unlike the Protest- 
ants, considers Berlin, East 
and West, to be one diocese 
The Catholic hierarchy, nnder 
Cardinal Joacbhn Meisner, j* 
based in East Beilin bat also 
aunisters to the 278,OOOCath- 
oifcs in West Berlin. . 

This arrangement, which 
overlooks the Berlin WaU, 
several minefields, watch- 
towers and ravenous akatian 
dogs, makes it ooe of the 
oddest dioceses in Europe and, 
as in the Intest case, can create 
friction between church tend- 
ers and their flock. 

Cardinal Meisner regalariy 
travels through the WaU to sit 
in on services- In recent, 
months he has been shocked 
by the activities of a West 
Berlin Jesuit, Father Waite 1 
Hdnlera, aged 47. The cardi- 
nal believes the priest has 
been flirting too heavily with 
politics and is too free and 
easy with church doctrine. 

Father Htinlein recently 
protested against a new Brit- 
ish shooting range at Gatow in 
West Berlin, and last Whitson

Malaysian 
politician 
faces jail 

Singapore (Reuter) — Mr 
Tan Koon Swan, a prominent 
Malaysian politician, pleaded 
guilty yesterday to one of IS 
charges related to the collapse 
of a Singapore company, and 
frees np to three years in 
prison when sentenced today. 

Mr Tan, a member of the 
.Malaysian Parliament and 
bead of the country's largest 
Chinese party, pleaded guilty 
to an amended charge of 
simple abetment of criminal 
breach of trust in connection 
with the collapse of Pan- 
Bectric Industries. Tire orig- 
inal charge of aggravated 
abetment was amended at his 
last appearance in the High 
Court two weeks ago. 

Mr Tan, who had been 
released then on bail of 41 
million Singapore dollars (£13 
million), now faces a maxi- 
mum three years' jail an 
unlimited fine or both by 
pleading guilty to abetting a 
Plan-Electric director to dis- 
honestly dispose of 145,000 
Singapore dollars, in company 
funds last September. 

He feces 14 other cfaaiges. 
He pleaded not guilty earlier 
to nine charges of abetment of 


letter from his pulpit because 
tee subject — the Christian 
family — was not appropriate 
for bn overwhelmingly elderly 
mid toady parishioners. 

h morning prayers, broad- 
cast by West Berlin radio,

eastern half of the city, Father 
Hemlem told a mixteni par- 
able, Jesus Christ meets Kail

The church leadership 
beard die broadcast and was 
not amused by the equation of 
Marx aad Christ. 

* The cardinal has derided to 
remove die priest from his 
parish, and there has been an 
angry response from some of 
tee more active parishioners. 
Speakers at a stormy protest 
meeting criticized the cardinal 
for not understanding “free- 
dom of speech in the West”. A 
petition has been sent to the 
Pope and appeals have been 
lodged with the church hierar- 
chy in East Berlin. The cardi- 
nal teows no signs of bodging.

yesterday's hearing. « 

Mr Tan held a big stake in- 
Pau-Etectric, . a marine and 1 : 
industrial group which wentT

Relief firemen 
rushed in as 


four killed in 


Riviera blazes 


From Susan MacDonald, Paris 


IIIlC i» 




Vt ?-J 


Rues raging through the 
hills of southern France have 
killed four people and de- 
stroyed 10,000 hectares of 
forest in the past three days. ' 

Firemen have been str- 
etched to their limit, some- 
times working 48 hours 
without a break, in their 
efforts to contain the fires in 
the Alpes-Mari times, Var and 
Bouches-du- Rhone regions. 
Reinforcements have been 
sent from the north of the 
country, including Paris, to 
relieve some of the 5.000 men 
on duty. 

Yesterday, the most dra- 
matic situation was in the 
Alpes-Maritimes. where 
winds gusting at more than 
60 mph fanned the raring 
flames. 

A fireman was killed when 
flames engulfed a fire engine 
and an elderly lady died when 
she left her car to try to escape 
the fire. Two men died from 
heart attacks while trying to 
save their homes. 

The fires, considered the 
worst for many years, have 
caused the evacuation of 2,000 
people from their homes. 

M Robert Pandraud. the 
Minister for Security, has 


visited th e area and put into 
effect an emergency plan io 
C o-ordinate relief services. 

He said 40 people bad been 
arrested for arson, this 

summer. 

• MADRID: The Costa del 
So! town of Mijas was yes- 
terday declared to be out of 
danger after a blaze, started by 
sparks from- a refuse dump; 
burnt about 100 hectares of 
grassland and woods on the 
edge of the settlement (Harry 
Debelius writes). 

Another fire, in the south- 
west of the country, was still 
burning after four days

Corsica poll re-run

Upper Corsica, one of the 
two departments on the is- 
land, went to the perils a gtin 
on Sunday, after its results in 
the March general election 
were declared null and void 
because of allegations of fraud 

On Sunday 54.6 per cent of 
the eligible population voted, 
against 63 per cent in March, 
but the results were the same, 
with the right-wing deputy. M 
Pierre Plasquini (RPR) and the 
left-wing deputy, M Emile 
Zuccarelli (MRG), being el- 
ected. 

Precautions were taken to 
ensure there would be no 
repetition of the interference 


with ballot boxes which oc- 
curred in March. 

But in three voting stations 
in Bastia masked men armed 
with iron bars and hatchets 
broke in and overturned ballot 
boxes. 

- Corsica has suffered about 
60 bombings and 30 hold-ups 
over the past two months, as 
well as serious forest fires that 
are damaging different parts of 
the island. 

No one has been injured in 
the bombings, which have 
been aimed at specific targets. 
Responsibility for 41 of them 
has been claimed by the 
outlawed Corsican separatist 
movement, the FLNC.

. ; be pre-eminent '. 

The Non-Aligned Move- 
ment tarns 25 next week in a 
location that would infinitely 
please the man behind its 
foundation, the late Marshal 
Tito of Yugoslavia. 

The leaders of ‘Two-thirds 
of humanity'' are assembling 
in Africa's newest sovereign 
state; Zimbabwe, and will be 
: - directing their invective just a 
. morning's drive southwards 
against the last outpost in the 
world of government based op 
fHf discrimination by race. 

South Africa will un- 
1 doubtedly be the chief object of 
the summit's attention. Mr 
Robert Mugabe, the Prime 
( Minister of Zimbabwe, in late 
-a* July at the Organization of 
African Unity summit in Ad-

Mr Mugabe: chairmanship 

will pnt him on the spot. . 

dis Ababa, urged all OAU 
states - which make up more 
than half of the movement's 
membership — to attend to. 
“make it our conference, a 
home affair," in further isolat- 
ing South Africa. 

According to a draft agenda 
drawn np by Zimbabwe, the 
southern African situation, 
dominated by the "internal 
repression and oppression in 
apartheid South Africa, the 
regime's destabilization of and 
aggression against the 
frontline states", as well as its 
occupation of Namibia, is the 
first item for discussion in the 
ghriml political review, re- 
garded as (he most fun- 
damental section of del- 
iberations. 

The issue is expected to be 
one of the few to receive the 
unanimous support of the 
members. 

What they will be able to do 
by way of direct action against 
South Africa is marginal. Few 
of them have any weighty 


economic or political influence 
there. 

The movement is credited 
with limited political clout 
generally. Most members are 
Third World countries with 
shaky economies and inferior 
military capacities. 

Bat observers point to the 
body's greater effectiveness as 
a massive lobby group enjoy- 
ing an array of connections 
with other international power 
groupings. 

Officials of the Ministry of 
Foreign Affairs hoe have 
given assurances that "proper 
attention" will also be given to 
the rest of the world’s prob- 
lems, ranging from super- 
power detente and nodear 
disarmament to Third World 
debt burdens and population 
growth. 

Among the movement's 
membership is counted nearly 
every' trouble spot on the globe 
— Afghanistan, Lebanon, Lib- 
ya, Nicaragua, Sri Lanka, 
Iran, Iraq, Cambodia. Korea, 
Morocco and Angola. 

Following South Africa on 
tbe agenda is the Middle East 
situation, with “Israeli 
aggression" receiving the only 
specific mention. 

The conference will put Mr 
Mugabe, who takes over the 
chairmanship on Monday next 
week from the Indian Prime 
Minister, Mr Rajiv Gandhi, 
on tbe spot as never before. 

Though one of Africa's best 
known leaders, bis influence is 
parochially restricted to sou- 
thern Africa. 

Nor has be ever played a 
significant role as a mediator, 
bnt rattier as a protagonist in 
local and regional politics. 

But his skills as a nego- 
tiator, bis keen sense of-diplo- 
macy and his rich, outspoken 
articulacy would appear to 
arm him well for the rigours of 
tbe coming fortnight. 

For that time Zimbabwe's 
national administration is ex- 
pected to come to a near halt as 
an estimated two-thirds of the 
civil service dedicates itself 
exclusively to conference 

affairs. 

According to budgetary es- 
timates, Zimbabwe will be 
paying £12 milium out of its 
own pocket on mounting the 
conference, excluding the cost 
Of diverting the civil service 
and the armed forces, but local 
and foreign generosity plays a 
key part. 

So far £4 million has been 
received in cash donations, but 
the list of gifts in kind is likely 
to far outstrip this figure. 

The items donated read like 
a Customs rummage sale: 16 
tonnes of Angolan sea food, 
100 East Germany refrig- 
erators, 12 motorcycles from 
the Palestine Liberation Or- 
ganization. to name bnt a few.

Reunion 
for family 
of Soviet 
dissident 


Vienna (Reuier) - Mr 
Anatoly Shcharansky. the for- 
mer Soviet dissident, was 
reunited yesterday with his 
mother, aged 77, who cam- 
paigned tirelessly for his re- 


lease from a Soviet labour 
camp. 

Mis Ida Milgrom, a tiny 
white-haired figure, was acVM 
gout her plans. She replied: 
“To see my son and bug him, I 

want to live, live, live.” 

Mrs Milgrom, Mr 
Shchaianslw’s brother, Leo- 
nid, his ware. Raya, and their 
two sons arrived in Vienna on 
their way to Israel after receiv- 
ing exit visas from the Soviet 
authorities last Tuesday. 

It was tiie first time Mrs 
Milgrom had seen her younger 
son since January 1985. “1 saw 
him then in prison. He was 
not free,” she told reporters as 
she wiped tears from her eyes. 

Mr Shcharansky served 
eight years of a 13-year sen- 
tence on spying charges until 
his release in February this 
year. He was allowed to leave 
the Soviet Union as part of an 
East-West prisoner exchange 
and lives in Israel with his 
wife, AvitaL

Aquino advised to 
crush communism 


Jakarta (Reuter) — Presi- 
dent Suharto of Indonesia 
>esierday advised President 
Aquino of the Philippines, 
whose government is tackling 
a 17-year communist insur- 
gency. to crush communism 
before it grows loo strong. 

His suggested approach 
contrasted sharply with Mrs 
Aquino's softer line towards 
communist rebels in the Phil- 
ippines. She is a attempting to 
arrange a ceasefire and per- 
suade the rebels to surrender. 

In wide-ranging talks lasting 
two hours. President Suharto 
was quoted as telling Mrs 
Aquino that he had 20 years' 
experience of fighting 
communism. 

Asked at a press conference 
about Mrs Aquino's reaction 
to the advice, the Deputy 
Foreign Minister of the Phil- 
ippines. Mrs Leticia Shahani. 
said in general the Philippine 


leader took a more concil- 
iatory approach. 

Mrs Shahani said many 
people had joined the com- 
munist New People's Army of 
the Philippines, which has an 
estimated 16,000 men under 
arms, because of economic 
conditions and abuse of hu- 
man rights during the 20-year 
rule of former President 
Marcos. 

She said they were different 
from the “hardcore of the 
Communist Parly, who are 
undertaking their struggle 
through the use of arms and 
violence". 

It was not sufficient for 
what she termed the softcore 
of the rebels to surrender. The 
Government needed funds to 
give them a new start. 

President Aquino is due to 
leave Jakarta today for a 36- 
hour visit to Singapore before 
returning home tomorrow.

Ah, so welcome in the valleys 


Japanese companies 
have doubled their 
British investments 
since 1980. But are 
they making money, 
asks Stephen Axis 

Once a week, regular as clockwork, 
Kazuo Murata, belter known to his 
colleagues as Ken, summons the 
senior staff of Yuasa Battery (UK) 
for what is, in effect, a company 
prayer meeting. 

Ken Muraia, a friendly, unassum- 
ing man with unruly dark hair, 
dressed in overalls and boots, is 
managing director of the British 
subsidiary of one of Japan's — and 
the world's — largest specialist 
battery makers. Within four years, 
from its windswept base at Ebbw 
Vale, the company has captured 60 
per cent of the British market and 
has. to its intense pride, won a 
Queen’s Award for Exports — only 
the second British-based Japanese 
company to do so. 

Since 1982. therefore, the theme 
of Muraia's weekly sermon has been 
unfailingly optimistic. He talks of 
rising sales, increasing production 
and growing productivity. He also 
urges his staff to greater efforts. On 
the factory floor, a large sign 
exhorts the 210 staff- mainly ex- 
miners and steelworkers from the 
valleys — to "do a little better each 
day.” 

From day one the company has 
been a non-union shop and only 
now is it, like many Japanese and 
British companies, negotiating a 
single union agreement with Eric 
Hammond's electricians' union, the 
EEPTU. 

Potentially. Yuasa is highly pros- 
perous. In Murata's office, where he 
spends little time and which is used 
mainly to receive visitors, a chart 
forecasts that, by 1990. turnover 
will have risen from an initial £7 
million lo over £20 million. 

Patient wait 
for profits 

But among the charts and graphs 
covering the walls there is no 
mention of one subject: profits. Just 
how much money the company is 
making and how much, if any, is 
being sent back to Yuasa's parent in 
Osaka, is not disclosed. 

it cost £3 million to set up the 
operation but, when grants and 
subsidies from the Welsh Develop- 
ment Agency and other bodies are 
taken into account, the company 
itself had to find no more than £1 
million. Murata says il is doing so 
well that it has already recouped its 
net investment and on a month-by- 
month basis is making a healthy 
trading profit 

Since then, another £10 million 
has been injected to finance expan- 
sion up to 1990. This means the 
company is trading at a loss and, 
even if it achieves its targets, it will 
lake at least three or four years to 
move back into the black. 

But this does not deni Muraia's 
confidence one bit. Like many 
Japanese companies operating in 
Britain and Europe, the finances of 
the parent group are strong and the 
shareholders, mostly banks and 
other institutions, are patient For

the time being they are content to 
take the long-term view and receive 
minimum dividends. As long as it 
continues to trade profitably they 
are prepared to wait for their return 
on investment. 

This willingness to plough back 
profits to finance further expansion, 
and to capture -larger dices of 
market share, is not peculiar to 
Yuasa. It is common to the majority 
of Japanese companies who, over 
the past five years, have come to 
Europe in force. 

A recent survey by Jetro, the 
Japanese government body, on the 
-profitability of IIS Japanese com- 
panies operating in Europe, reveals 
the surprising feet that SO, well over 
40 per cent, are losing money or 
only just breaking even. 

The explanation is not hard to 
find. “You must remember”, says 
Felicity Marsh, wife of Lord Marsh, 
'the former Labour Cabinet min- 
ister, who has made a special study 
of Japanese investment in Europe, 
“that unlike most Western com- 
panies. the Japanese are prepared to 
take a long-term view. Their 
priorities are not an immediate 
return on capital but, by relentlessly 
concentrating on quality control 
and production techniques, to build 
up a sound operating base. 

“The fact that, ajgain unlike most 
Western companies, the parent 
companies in Japan are cash-rich 
and shareholders are very passive, is 
also an advantage.” 

These fundamental differences in 
approach to investment and profit 
have caused problems in the pasL 
By all accounts it was the reason for 
the collapse, a couple of years ago, 
of a joint venture between Lord 
Weinstock's General Electric Com- 
pany and Hitachi, the electronics 
firm. “The attitude of the two 
companies proved to be totally 
incompatible. Hitachi was prepared 
to spend a lot of money while GEC 


was only interested in a quick 
return”, says Lady Marsh. 

Over the past five years there has 
been an explosion of Japanese 
investment in Europe and, particu- 
larly. Britain. Scotland is the most 
favoured destination but Wales, 
with 1 1 companies employing 3.500 
people, is not far behind. Overall, 
the figures show that the volume of 
Japanese investment in Britain on 
an annual basis has more than

East by north east: Wearside next 
for Toshialti Yasnda of Nissan 


doubled since 1980 — from £125 
million to £250 million in 1986. 

The most spectacular example is 
Nissan Motors, whose £50 million 
Sunderland factory begins fell 
production early in September, with 
a workforce of 310 and a target of 
24.000 cars a year. Next year the 
company will decide whether to 
move to phase two, which would see 
the workforce increased to 3,000 
and production to 100.000 cars a 
year. 

Like Yuasa. Nissan, after a good 
deal of internal debate and in- 
decision, came to Britain because it 
feared a loss in competitive edge. 
The continuing strength of the yen 
was threatening to damage 
profitability of its Japanese-based 
export operation and there were 
political pressures. Britain was 
among Western governments warn- 
ing of reprisals unless Japan curbed 
its export effort. As the Japanese 
saw it, a programme of direct 
investment abroad made sense, 
economically and politically. 

Nervous Japanese industrialists 
were encouraged, towards this by . 
their government- and the Ktidjan- 
ren, the powerful employers* . 
organization, which has far more 
clout than its British counterpart, 
the CBI. “We believe that direct 
investment will help reduce Japan's 
balance of trade surplus and have 
been urging companies to do this for . 
some years”, says H^jime Ohta, the 
Keidanren's man in London. 

Plainly, the Nissan venture is in a 
different league to Yuasa's compar- 
atively modest operation in Ebbw 
Vale. But the attitudes to produo- . 
tion and profit are similar. Like 
Yuasa, Nissan is not looking for 
quick returns. “There’s no way we 
can make money for some time” 
says Nissan’s chief spokesman, 
Toshiaki Yasuda. “The Sunderland 
factory will not break even until it is 
producing a 100.000 cars a year and 
that will take at least three or four r 
years. We are more interested in 


long-term stability than short-term 
gains.” 

The firm has invested a good deal 
of time and money training the 
workforce and introducing them to 
the Japanese way of thinking. 
Teams from Sunderland have been 
sent to Japan to see for themselves. 
But the one thing Nissan says it will 
never do is lay people off.jrrespec- 
tive of how badly the firm is doing. 
“Once you start doing that, you lose 
their confidence”, says Yasnda. “If, 
on the other hand, you show yon are 
doing all you can by cutting prices 


Bothered by 
the prospects 


and overheads, people will appre- 
ciate it and do their best when 
things improve.” 

So for. so good Both the Welsh 
and the Geordies have responded 
well to their new masters and 
sometimes strange customs. The 
Japanese managers have, assumed 
British Christian . names, - tactfully 
drive British cars, and send their 
children to British schools. In Ebbw 
Vale, they drink beer and discuss 
the fluctuating fortunes of Welsh 
rugby. 

. But wifi the honeymoon last? The 
Japanese are friendly and cheerful 
but they are also great worriers. And 
though most are too polite to say so, 
there is, one can detect, an under- 
lying uncertainty, best expressed by 
a Japanese diplomat working for the 
Ministry of Foreign Trade. “l am a 
little bothered”, he confessed “by 
what has happened to American 
companies who have . been here 
much longer. They don't seem to 
have been very successful. Perhaps 
they have become too British. I 
wonder if that's going to happen to 
us, 20 years hence.”

Adonis, blue with cold 


T his has been the sum- 
mer of the butterfly 
shortage. Normally at 
this time of year there 
are plenty of bright specimens 
around and the buddleia 
bushes are dotted with pea- 
cocks and tortoiseshells. But 
only the whites seem to be 
thriving, and to spot anything 
more interesting has been 
quite an event. 

Why is this? According to 
John Taiham of the British 
Butterfly Conservation Soci- 
ety, the number one culprit is 
the weather. After “20 months 
of mild winter” across much 
of the country, you could 
hardly expea better. Butter- 
flies need the sun — most 
simply don’t fly without it — 
and a spring so extremely cold 
and wet got the butterfly year 
off to the worst possible start. 

But it is not the weather 
alone that is to blame, as John 
Tatham makes dear. Modern 
agricultural practices have led 
to widespread loss of habitat — 
165,000 miles of hedgerow 
ploughed up in the last 20 
years, chalk downland dis- 
appearing under arable, 
marshlands being drained, 
woods felled. Butterflies and 
intensive farming simply 
don't mix. Pesticides, killing 
unselectively, are a problem — 
especially when sprayed from 
helicopters - and weedkillers 
have hugely reduced the vari- 
ety of wild plants on farmland- 
What is the outlook for our 
butterflies? Four of them are 
endangered species under le- 
gal protection, and for one of 
these it is already too late. The 
Large Blue is now extinct here, 
but it is hoped that it may be 
reintroduced 'from Scandina- 
vian stock. The spectacular 
Swallow Tail is still breeding 
in its handful of Fenland 
locations, and the Chequered 
Skipper, now extinct in En- 
gland, survives in one colony 
in the north-west of Scotland. 

The Heath Fritillary is lim- 
ited to one location in Kent 


Why Britain’s 
butterflies are 
fighting for 
their survival 



Swallow Tail, a rare beanty 

and three or four in the west 
country. There are half a 
dozen other species almost as 
rare, and others have gone 
into alarming decline. One 
such js the lovely Adonis Blue, 
which 10 years ago was still 
common on chalk downland 
and is now positively scarce. 
Almost certainly, all these 
species wilt be worse off than 
ever after this dreadful sum- 
mer. 

More generally, the only 
realistic prospect is of steady 
decline. Most British butter- 
flies are anyway at the north- 
ern extreme of their range and 


therefore particularly vulner- 
able. But you never can teU 
with butterflies. 

John Tatham records how 
in Leicestershire, where his 
society is based, there was a 
sudden “invasion” of Gouded 
Yellows (a migrant from the 
Continent) in one of our 
recent warm summers, after 
nearly 20 years without a 
single sighting. The reason 
was a particularly strong warm 
southerly air flow, which in 
fact carried these beauties as 
far north as Cumbria. 

A hot summer is ofcourse a 
good thing, but after the 
drought of 1976 and its 
spectacular displays of butter- 
flies came a very lean year. 
Too many wild flowers had 
been lolled off by the extreme 
conditions: 

B ut even in the face of 
the British weather 
and the British farmer 
there is plenty that 
can be done. The British 
Butterfly Conservation Soci- 
ety .is at present establishing a 
42 acre reserve between 
Droitwich and Worcester. 

On a small scale, we can all 
help, by planting our gardens 
with flowers rich in nectar, the 
butterflies' food. What they 
need are michaelmas daisies; 
sedum . .spectabile, buddleia, 
and big asters and marigolds. 
And the. caterpillars of many 
of our most beautiful butter- 
flies feed on the common 
stinging nettle. No garden 
should be without nettles if we 
are to keep our butterflies. _

How Britain’s voice of America for 
more than 40 years stays in tune . 


The scene, is a television 
studio in. a nondescript con- 
crete building next to the 
Pepsi-Cola bottling plant in 
Boston, Massachusetts. 
Sealed behind an enormous 
white grand piano is the man 
known to Britons as die voice 
of America and to Americans 
as the archetypal English- 
man. He turns to the camera. 
“Good evening”, he rays, 
*Tn» Alistair Cooke . 

As host of the American 
television series Masterpiece 
Theatre, which celebrates Its 
15th birthday this year, 
Cooke has acted as front man 
for transatlantic imports as 
varied as Upstairs Down- 
stairs, The Jewel in the Crown 
and The Irish RM. Unlike 
British viewers, who are ex- 
pected to take their culture 
cold, Americans are used to a 
master or ceremonies figure to 
signal a change from the 
prime-time diet of cop shows 
and sitcoms and Cooke's 
urbane and informative in- 
troductions have become a 
part of the regular Sunday 
evening date with the classics. 
His position as a television 
institution is confirmed by the 
number of parodies he has 


room with a view, Motad- 
batten a gtant dassicaT col- 
umn. A caned wooden 
staircase was prorided.-te 
Upstairs, D o wn s t ai rs, an up- 
time Masterpiece .Theatre 
favourite because it confirmed 
so many popular 
preconceptions. 

“Americans think fee Brit- 
ish are either aristocrats or 
Cockneys**, Cooke says, 
“Essentially the Edwardian 
things give you a- picture 
people want to see.” . 

Meeting Alistair Cooke, in 
his New York apartment, is 
like meeting an old family 
friend. The setting is familial; 
his study with its rad 'leather 
chair and books arranged 
from A to Z was used-to fun* 
the beginning and end at fee 
BBC’s America series; And 
his conversation, like Us 
broadcasting style, is witty 
and anecdotal. 

He was bora in Manchester 
in 1908 and educated, at 
Cambridge (where be took a 
first in Enriisti). -Yale and 
Harvard. His original in- 
terest was in fee theatre and 
films.. He worked hi Holly-

inspired. The children's pro- 
gramme Sesame Street has its 
own Alistair Cookie, and the 
Disney cable-TV channel its 
Mousterpkce Theatre. 

To as, of course, Cooke is 
best known for his weekly 
Letter from America, the 
longest-running scries in ra- 
dio history, which can be 
beard in almost every country 
around the world except for 
the US - he has resisted 
attempts to widen the Ameri- 
can audience beyond a select 
band of short-wave listeners, 
feeling it would split the 
target. A New York Tima 
reviewer once described the 
tone of his 15-mhmte talks as 
that of a “stern but kindly 
headmaster addressing a 
recalcitrant schoolboy”, and 
the teacher's hat is firmly in 
place m Masterpiece Theatre. 
When Hudson and 
Mrs Bridges had a below- 
Stairs gnunMe about falling 
standards,' Cooke was on 
hand wife his between-stairs 
rundown on the battle of the 
Somme. When a 1920s mood 
was In order for Frederick 
Lonsdale's On Approval, 
Cooke was there in his dinner 
jacket, to illustrate the sar- 
torial habits of BBC radio 
announcers of the time. 

Describing himself mod- 
estly as a “knockabout 
historian”, be researches and 
writes his own introductions, 
which are recorded on spe- 
cially constructed sets. The 
packaging for Star Quality, a 
Noel Coward series which 
will reach American tele- 
vision screens in the antnmn, 
includes the white piano and

He emigrated to America in 
1937, 'became a citizen in 
1941, and worked as foreign 
correspondent first for The 
Times, then The Guardian. 
His first Letter was broadcast 
in 1946. He retired to con- 
centrate on that and the 
America series in 1972, He 
was knighted fee following

• “I still think of myself as 
an Englishman who fives in 
the US, which doesn't pre- 
empt the feet that 1 fed 
totally at home in both 
countries”, Cooke, who is 
married to an American, rays. 

His role, as a kind of 
cultural fink between the two 
countries, is a relatively re- 
cent one. “Originally, the job 
was reporting on America” 
he says. “Editors would call 
me from time to time when- 
ever there was some crisis in 
British politics. 1 would say:. 
T know nothing about British 
politics, but if you want to 
know how to get a fruit

nia, I can teU yon’.” 

Cooke visits En gland two 
or three times a year, and

Back-to-school clothes pose a dilemma for parents and their 
childrenbut Jane Procter finds solutions in the high street 


G one are the clear- 
cut arguments 
about school uni- 
form. Now it 
seems that even 
the most fanatic supporters 
waver, especially when their 
child approaches the teenage 
years. It is no longer the 
"whining schoolboy with his 
satchel and shining morning 
face,' creeping like snaj l 
unwillingly to school” In his 
stead is a bright modem 
counterpart dressed in the best 
that the outfitters, shops and 
chain stores can offer. Boys 
do seem to accept uni- 
forms with a certain 
equanimity, but one 
does wonder if there is 
really a case for a uni- 
form for the adolescent 
gilt It is very difficult to 
make a 13-year-old wear 
a stria uniform. Many 
parents send their children 
to independent schools hoping 
that, in a property disciplined 
environment, the uniform will 
be worn correctly. Try telling 
that to the said 13-year-old. 

Girts loathe wearing uni- 
forms, and one mother I spoke 
to recently has considered 
moving her 13-year-old to a 
non-uniform school so that 
she can kiss goodbye to the 
fights and frustrations. 

T he problem Is that 
young girls cus- 
tomize their uni- 
forms out of all 
recognition. Skirts 
are instantly shortened and 
tightened. Regulation pull- 
overs are purchased in the 
largest and sloppiest sizes 
possible — and if a Maries and 
Spencer men’s size 44 is a 
dose enough approximation 
to what is required, then that 
is what will be worn. 

• The school coat or blazer is 
rarely considered suitable 
garb, and young girls win 
willingly go to school in sub- 
zero temperatures dad in a 
thin cardigan, rather than 
suffer the ignominy of the 
gaberdine raincoat. 

Fashion is obviously para- 
mount. As a friend summed it 
upc “In .1971 when Ijvas 1 1, JT_ 
was sent borne from school 
because my skirt was too 
short; in 1973 1 was sent home 
because it was too long.” 

Patrida Renting is head- 
mistress of my old school. 
Queen’s College, Harley 
Street, which dispensed with 
uniforms decades ago. “If a 
school has a uniform”, she 
says, “teachers waste valuable 
teaching time nagging chil- 
dren about the colour of their 
socks.” The only advantage of 
uniforms she could think of 
was being able to identify 
pupils on a school outing. 

The regular arguments in 
favour of uniforms include the 
social statement that they 
mask differences in parental 
income. But when the teachers 
at South Hampstead High, an 
independent school which is 
part of the nationwide Girls' 
Public Day School Trust, 
voted to abolish school uni- 
form. the girls protested and 
managed to conjure up several 
more pro-uniform arguments. 

. The non-uniform-wearing 
sixth-formers were the author- 
ity and they produced the 
following statements: a school 
uniform eli mates the worry of 
what to wear each day; it gives 
you a pride in your school plus

All good Blazer of Glory 
stuff. But it does sound as if 
the sixth form wanted to 
retain their lhem-and-us iden- 
tity, and the decision was 
unfortunate for tbeir head- 
mistress. Averil Burgess, who 
had voted for the demise of 
the uniform. 

She agrees with Patricia 
Fleming that the uphill battle 
to police foe uniform is pretty 
daft But in its favour she does 
comment: “It provides a 
reasonably harmless method 
of protest. I would rather that 
foe girts made their statement 
with a slit skin or a ritualized 
holey woollie than la their 
protest emerge in some other 
form which might be infinitely 
more undesirable .” When a 
uniform is absent, it is in- 
teresting to see just how loose 
the pupils’ kit can be. St Paul's 
Girls’ School stipulates merely 
that the girls should wear 
shoes. And they don't mean 
shoes as opposed to trainers. 
The colour-coded solution hit 
upon by many schools is one 
answer. Westminster School

ing foe chain store on its

decided that, for a com- 
prehensive range, its

state schools have 
some form of non-

based on colours — 
usually in the navy, grey, 
black, bottle, burgundy 
spectrum, and individual 
items can be bought from 
chain stores or school out- 
fitters depending on pref- 
erence. 

The chain stores do an 
excellent job in providing 
practical washable basics 
which can be slotted in to 
most of the more enlightened 
schools' uniforms, but the 
main criticism levelled at 
them is that they view the 
supply of schoolwear as a 
seasonal sale and h is down to 
foe trusty old school outfitter 
to constantly slock foe bulk of 
foe paraphernalia of a school

Massacres 
and muzzlers 

Count Nikolai Tolstoy is to ad- 
dress visitors to the Federation of 
Conservative Students* annual 
conference after all. The White 
Russian author of the book which 
accuses Harold Macmillan of 
sending 40.000 Cossacks to their 
deaths in 1 945 was invited months 
ago by the FCS to join Jeffrey 
Archer and George Walden as a 
speaker at their weekend con- 
ference in Leicester in two weeks 
time. But after the rumpus over 
the restatement of Tolstoy's 
allegations in their magazine. 
Conservative Central Office 
warned the FCS that if it went 
ahead with the address all its 
funding would be withdrawn. In 
the end the federation backed 
down, booking Rhodes Bovson to 
speak instead. However. Tolstoy 
will be present — as a guest of the 
Association for a Free Russia, of 
which he is a patron. He tells me 
he still fully intends to speak, 
despite a telephone call from 
Smith Square urging him not to. 

As you were 

The constant renaming of streets 
and squares in Moscow after dead 
heroes and historical events is to 
be curbed. A commission has been 
set up to this end, and among the 
first to revert to their previous 
identities will be the Lermont- 
ovskaya underground station, ne 
Krasnye Vorota or Beautiful 
Gates, and Frunzensky Val street 
— named after a Bolshevik revolu- 
tionary — which will go back to 
being Weavers Street in Russian. 
The news will come as a source of 
hope for those who still refer to 
Leningrad as St Petersburg. 

Tall order 

Dutchmen arc getting so tall that 
the standard doorway size in the 
Hague has had to be lengthened 
four inches to 6ft II in. And 
many new recruits to the army are 
so tall — 477 this year topping 
6ft 7 in — that orders have been 
placed for longer barrack room 
bunks. There must be something 
in the lager.

Rope trick 

In his newly published The Sey-

“Mad” Mike Hoare pays tribute to 
Tory MP Nicholas Fairbaim for 
organizing the defence of his 
mercenary invaders al their sub- 
sequent trial in South Africa, 
whence they set out and whence 
they returned. The colonel recalls 
a dinner in Durban during which 
the flamboyant Fairbaim vaunted 
the fact that no client of his had 
ever suffered the death penalty. “I 
look comfort from that." writes 
Hoare. “and as it turned out once 
again, his record was to remain 
umblcmished." In fact, with the 
South African government re- 
ported to have been more than 
slightly involved in the fiasco. 
Hoare and Co escaped the rope by 
the proverbial mile.

‘It's a lot less bower than a hover* 


Backlash 


The invitation by Peter Imbert, 
deputy commissioner of the 
Metropolitan Police, to the rank 
and file to submit cost-cutting 
suggestions has produced one — 
from a number of bobbies — which 
he is unlikely to endorse: abolition 
of his own job on the grounds that 
he has little to do except fill in 
while the commissioner is on 
holiday. Sir Robert Mark, a 
former commissioner, once called 
the deputy's position "the worst 
job in the force” because it carried 
no real authority. Imbert's critics 
note that axing his post would 
save £43.152 a year, as well as 
perks which include a chauffeur- 
driven car and a tax-free housing 
allowance: enough lo take on five 
cadets at a time when Imbert's 
boss. Sir Kenneth Newman, is 
complaining that the force is 
seriously under strength. 

Newtered 

Newt lover Ken Livingstone is 
celebrating the first big victory in 
his campaign to protect their 
ponds from the advances of the 

E noperty men. After lobbying by 
ivingstone and experts from the 
British Herpetological Society, the 
Nature Conservancy Council has 
designated one of the country's 
biggest colonies of great crested 
newts — at Epsom in Surrey' — as a 
site of special scientific interest, h 
is only the second in Britain to be 
officially protected. But one prob- 
lem has yet to be overcome: 
gypsies recently camped nearby, 
and are filling the pond with their 

rubbish. PHS 




Codes of practice have become the 
parliamentary flavour of the 
limes. The first, the Highway 
Code, came into being in 1 930. By 
1971 only half a dozen minor and 
obscure codes were extant But 
since 1973. 25 statutes have been 
passed under which 48 codes of 
practice could be published. 

The present government prefers 
voluntary codes, drafted and 
administered by the industries to 
which they apply. The Labour 
Party is unsurprisingly suspicious 
of such self-administered controls, 
and has plans to introduce a great 
number of statutory codes. The 
Alliance prefers voluntary codes 
but would enact statutory codes 
wherever voluntary ones proved 
inadequate. 

Codes of practice already 
permeate many aspects of our 
lives, whether we are aware of it or 
noL Yet their exact legal status 
and role is far from certain and by 
no means well understood by 
many of the politicians rooting for 
them. 

In a .House of Lords debate 
earlier this year. Lord Campbell of 
.Alio way, quoting Lord Elwyn- 
Jones, said: “Reliance upon these 
codes [is] representative of a 
modern and unhealthy trend to- 
wards rules of indeterminate 
status." Lord Campbell went on to 
define five different types of 
statutory code and pointed out 
that some of them — quoting Lord 
Scarman — “lack any legal 
significance", whereas others are 
to all intents and purposes laws of 
the land. 

The Fair Trading Act of 1973 
provided the then newly-created 
Office of Fair Trading with a duty 
io encourage the development of 
industry codes. Section 124(3) 
requires the OFTs director-gen- 


Winston Fletcher urges a critical look at 
the ever-growing list of anomalous measures 
for disciplining the commercial world 


eral “to encourage relevant 
organizations to prepare, and to 
disseminate to their membera, 
codes of practice for guidance in 
safeguarding the interests of con- 
sumers in the United Kingdom". 

Twenty such codes have been 
created, covering such diverse 
services as laundering, double- 
glazing and funerals. However, 
many of these codes by no means 
satisfy the Labour Party. It states 
in its recently published Charter 
For Consumers: “Voluntary codes 
of practice have been introduced 
with the support of the OFT. But 
in too many cases these have 
proved ineffective or limited in 
scope, and the powers of the OFT 
to enforce orders slow and 
cumbersome.” 

The charter proposes '‘statutory 
codes of practice dealing with 
particular aspects of trading or 
with specific trades. They would 
cover all relevant companies and 
be properly enforced." 

One might reasonably ask. what 
is the difference between codes of 
practice and laws? What has 
prompted this new-found fashion 
for codes of practice and what are 
their advantages over traditional, 
oldfashioned statutes? 

The eminently practical just- 
ification for the original Highway 
Code was that it .provided direc- 
tions for sensible behaviour which 
could not possibly be enforced as 
law. For example, while motorists 
can be instructed by the code to 
look in their mirrors before 


overtaking, it would be quite 
impossible to prosecute every 
motorist who foiled to do so. 

The Highway Code can, how- 
ever, to quote Lord Denning, “be 
taken into account by a magistrate 
or judge trying a civil or criminal 
case and is therefore not without 
legal significance" — even though 
it is “not a statute which is 
imperative and which one could 
be punished for disobeying". 
Within this context Lord Den- 
ning added, the Highway Code 
works admirably. 

Similar advantages pertain to 
some of the more recent codes. 
For example, the Industrial Rela- 
tions Act of 1971 authorized the 
secretary of stale to issue a code 
for the guidance of management 
and workers. Its prescriptions are 
taken into account in industrial 
legal actions: so as with the 
Highway Code, they have legal 
significance. 

Many other industrial codes, 
however, have no (or al least no 
apparent) legal significance. Take 
the code for advertising practice: 
Like most voluntary codes it 
operates- entirely outside the law. 
Yet the Advertising Standards 
Authority executes summary jus- 
tice: an advertiser has no means of 
appeal if he feels unjustly treated. 
Nor has he any recourse to law, 
since publications reserve the 
right to reject advertisements, and 
they always wish to reject 
advertisements that have been 
declared unacceptable by the 
authority. 


The advocates of voluntary 
codes claim, with some force, that 
they operate more quickly, more 
effectively and more cheaply than 
legislative controls ever could. It is 
argued too that because they have 
the support of the industry con- 
cerned. voluntary codes can be 
and are applied in the spirit as well 
as in the fetter - that being the 
power of self-regulatory justice. 

However, with a profusion of 
new codes being launched — the 
Securities and Investments Board 
will father a host of them, for from 
inexpensively, through its subsid- 
iary self-regulating organizations 
- it is surely time for their legal 
status to be clarified, and for some 
awkward questions to be resolved. 

When, for example. Parliament 
seeks to approve a code word-by- 
word and line-by-line, as it did in 
the case of the recent Local 
Government Act, surely it would 
be more sensible for the code to be 
enacted as law. And where a code 
has statutory backing, as for 
example the Independent Broad- 
casting Authority's code of 
advertising, surely there should be 
some mechanism for legal appeal 
against derisions that can be made 
almost arbitrarily, as many are at 
present, by die statutory body 
involved.) 

One cannot escape the feeling, 
as with all fashions, that the 
present partiality of politicians for 
codes of practice arises at least as 
much from their trendy image as 
from their suitability. “We are 
beset by codes of practice on every 
side," said Lord Airedale in the 
Lords debate. Is it not time we 
tried to sort them out?

Bonn 

In this last week of August, huge 
numbers of Germans are still 
occupying Italy, Greece and the 
South of France. The advert- 
isements in the travel ageuqr 
windows here suggest that the still 
richer ones are seeing action on 
safari in Kenya or in the massage 
parlours of Bangkok. In what one 
would have thought was a bad 
season for politics, the Social 
Democrats (SPD) have chosen 
this week for their party con- 
ference at Nuremberg. 

The unseasonable moment has 
been derided upon because time is 
pressing. A general election is only 
five months away and the hope is 
that those Germans still at home, 
or within reach abroad of West 
German newspapers, will start to 
see and hear a lot of good things 
about Herr Johannes Rau. the 
SPD's candidate for chancellor in 
the January campaign, and that 
this process will go on until 
election day. 

.An alternative theory is that the 
SPD is now like any other left-of- 
centre party and contains a lot of 
jeople, and opinions, which 
tighten most voters. The people, 
and opinions, are the usual ones: 
neutralism, the desire to punish 
the “rich", anything to do with 
“women". It is therefore nec- 
essary, so the alternative theory 
goes, for the more respectable 
Social Democrats, while they still 
control the party, to have the 
conference at a time when not too 
many voters are watching. 

Whatever the truth, these 
respectable ones, as they stroll 
around Nuremberg's restored 
medieval centre while chewing at 
the delirious local delicacy, 
Wurstchen (little sausages, eaten 
three to the bun), will be hoping 
that anyone paying attention to 
the conference will at last realize 
what a good chancellor Herr Rau 
would make. 

Britons occasionally ask of Herr 
Rau what Germans occasionally 
ask of Mr Kin nock: namely, who 
is he? The answer is the same in 
both cases. Herr Rau is amiable, 
warm, compassionate, comes 
from a town which is believed by 
the middle classes to be romanti- 
cally proletarian, has a youthful 
wife, thinks he gets on well with 
ordinary people, is no great reader, 
and has the immense advantage in 
politics of being “underrated.” 

At 54. he is much older than Mr 
Kinnock. Nor was his father's 
occupation all that proletarian 
(Lutheran pastor). They lived, 
however, in a part of the country 
where there are lots of miners (the 
Ruhr). But a similarity with Mr 
Kinnock is that it is cruelly 
suspected of Herr Rau. not least in 
his own party, that inside that

What hope for 
Germany’s

San: warm, compassionate and affable, but

affable head not much is going on. 

Concerning the latter, a Herr 
Klaus Bolling is about to say as 
much in a new book on the slate of 
West German politics. Herr Boll- 
ing was official spokesman for the 
last SPD chancellor, Helmut 
Schmidt, and then head of the 
West German mission to East 
Germany. He emphasizes that 
Herr Rau is a splendid prime 
minister of North Rhine-West- 
phalia. the job he at present holds. 
But this is a tactic lo reinforce 
whal Herr Bolling really wants to 
say. which is that Herr Rau would 
not be much good at the big stuff - 
the grand international subjects 
among which Herr Schmidt, and 
by implication, Herr Bolling, were 
at home: 

This is being interpreted as a 
considerable blow to Herr Rau, 


parity because it is broadly true. 
The interesting question is: does it 
mallei? Herr Schmidt appeared to 
be internationally important. But 
at home be achieved the lethal 
feat, for a West German chan- 
cellor, of presiding' over rising 
inflation and unemployment 
That was one of the reasons for the 
desertion of his coalition partners, 
the Free Democrats (FDP). in 
1982 in favour of the internation- 
ally un glamorous Helmut Kohl, 
who has taken care to preside over 
only one of those sets of rising 
statistics (unemployment). 

Herr Rau's difficulties, and the 
reasons that he at present looks 
unlikely to become chancellor in 
January, have nothing to do with 
an alleged lack of a grasp of grand 
theory. Prices are actually falling. 
Unemployment is high by West 


German standards, but is broadly 
confined to areas which would 
vote SPD in any case, such as Heir 
Rau's native North Rhine-West- 
phalia. 

In the present republic, the SPD 
has never gone directly from 
opposition to government It 
emerged as the biggest single party 
in the election of 1969. having 
been in a grand coalition with the 
Christian Democrats since 1966. 
rather in the way that Labour won 
its majority in 1945 only after 
having been in the wartime co- 
alition. After January, the SPD 
could probably lead a government 
only with the support of the 
Greens, who are fading and are 
unpopular among Herr Rau's 
industrial voters. He keeps having 
to say that he would never form a 
coalition with them. Finally, no 
one knows what the SPD’s defence 
policy is. 

Here Heir Rau differs im- 
portantly from Mr Kinnock. Herr 
Rau is really the choice of the old 
right, the best they could do after 
Herr Schmidt’s fell, and in the face 
of that increased left-wing in- 
fluence which is inevitable when- 
ever a socialist party goes into 
opposition. After his re-election 
by a big margin in North Rhine- 
Westphalia last year, he was 
bound to be thought of as the only 
chancellor candidate with a 
chance of winning in 1987. His 
instinct was to decline the honour. 
The party elders persuaded him to 
do his duty. The demands in the 
party for “neutralism", heavier 
taxation and greater state control 
looked more serious, as they 
always do when parties of this 
land are not in government 

Herr Rau's instinct on accept- 
ing the candidacy, was to stay in 
Dfisseldorf — North Rhme- 
Westphalia’s highly unproletarian 
capital — and to say nothing on 
these contentious subjects. But 
every now and then he had to. 
That only adds to the confusion 
about party policy. 

The young and vigorous Ameri- 
can ambassador, Richard Bun, 
has visited him in Dussddorf to 
“brief" him — as the Americans 
put it — on defence. The gist of Mr 
Burt's findings is that Herr Rau is 
“ail right" really, although if that 
gains too wide a currency it will 
get Herr Rau into even more 
trouble in the party. 

Herr Rau's only hope is the 
government's complacency about 
the outcome of the election. There 
is also the belief that, in the end, 
the voters will opt for someone 
who is provincial, unpretentious, 
does not make out he knows a lot 
about foreigners, and gets on well 
with ordinary people. But in that 
case they are just as likely to vote 
for Herr KohL 


Why Mubarak is safe from a coup 


Is the mildly authoritarian regime 
of President Mubarak of Egypt 
about to be swept away by an 
Islamic revolution? Listening to 
Cairo intellectuals (and to many 
western commentators) one might 
think this perennial American 
nightmare is about to come to 
pass. 

On the face of it. they have a 
point. It is undeniable that 
Mubarak is seen at all levels of 
Egyptian society as a bumbling 
idiot and that lack of direction at 
the top has given a feeling of 
vacuum to Egyptian politics. 

It is also true that the Islamic 
movement is flourishing, and that 
great many ordinary folk, sick of 
rising prices and difficult living 
conditions, are voicing the opin- 
ion that since Nasser’s socialism 
and the late President Sadat's 
capitalism have foiled, they might 
as well give God a try. 

.Amid this general move to- 
wards Islam, its more extreme 
devotees have gained new ground. 
Fundamentalist Muslims now 
have greater power in Egypt than 
before the death of Anwar Sadat 
although they are less noticeable 
on the streets because their beards 
and robes have given way to 
civilian “disguise”. 

The student unions of all the 
country's universities are now 
controlled by fundamentalists. So 
are the ruling bodies of the 


doctors* syndicate and the 
engineers' syndicate, and of the 
lawyers' syndicate outside Cairo. 
These are not posts of power, but 
are very visible. 

The fundamentalists’ influence 
is also strong on two of Egypt's 
three opposition newspapers, At- 
Sha'ab and Al-Ahrar. and they 
have total control of Al-Nur, an 
offshoot of Al-Ahrar. In recent 
weeks Al-Sha'ab and Al-Ahrar 
have sent delegations of journal- 
ists to Iran, who have filed glowing 
reports of life in Tehran. 

In business. Islam is again 
making great strides. Egyptians in 
genera] refuse to invest in any- 
thing other than a Swiss bank; but 
companies run on Islamic lines, 
mostly involved in construction 
and consumer goods — such as 
Rayyan, Sheri f and. Al-Hoda al- 
Masr — have been attracting 
investors by the thousand. They 
offer what amounts to 26% in- 
terest. although in accordance 
with Islam's ban on interest it is 
defined as a share of the profit. 

Many believe that these com- 
panies fund religious extremism. 
The Egyptian government has 
now become sufficiently alarmed 
to attempt to bring them under

government control and to stop 
new investment. 

With propaganda, cash, the 
professions and the universities in 
their pockets, the fundamentalists 
nevertheless appear still to lade 
several essentials for a successful 
revolution. 

First is the army. Its loyalty to 
the government has been re- 
inforced by a number of perks. 
These include a guarantee of 
housing on easy terms, not just for 
officers but for NCOs as welL The 
lump-sum payment for retiring 
officers has been significantly 
raised in the past year, on the 
assumption that serving officers 
are less likely to rock the boat if 
promised good retirement terms. 

And then, even if would-be 
revolutionaries have influence 
within the army, it is unlikely that 
they have the command structure 
necessary to effect a coup against 
loyal divisions; The movement 
appears to consist of a number of 
small groups rather than a pyra- 
mid structure. It also lacks an 
obvious figurehead to lead an 
Islamic government. 

Nor would an extremist bar 
nian-style revolution, with its 
overtones of grisly punishments 
and intolerance, have the backing 
of the majority of Egyptians. 
While there is a growing desire for 
a “moderate” form of Islamic 
government the popular mood is 


one of piety rather than Islamic 
revolt 

Hatred of the existing regime, 
such as existed in Iran under the 
Shah, or indeed in Egypt under 
Sadat which might polarize oppo- 
sition. is another missing ingredi- 
ent Mubarak is regarded with 
contempt rather than intense dis- 
like. This is one reason why the 
Egyptian oligarchy, and Egypt's 
American backers, currently see 
hint as the best available option. 

How the future develops will 
hinge to a great extent on the 
economy. Unless the recent re- 
vival in oil prices is sustained, the 
situation may become more 
vulnerable to Islamic exploitation. 
In any case, half a million fewer 
Egyptians will find work this year 
than last in the rich Arab oil 
nations, adding to the pool of 
discontented Egyptians and 
increasing the possibility of riots. 

Even so. the most likely re- 
action in the short term to 
prolonged disturbance would be 
an army takeover. A new military 
regime would find it prudent to 
pay greater obeisance to Islam 
than the present heirs of Nasser 
and Sadat, but for the moment the 
basic common sense of the Egyp- 
tians suggests that Islamic ex- 
tremists will be excluded from real 
power.

Abandon your 
lordships 


In a recent issue nl l he -S/HVWfrv. 
I came across these opening 
sentences of an economics com- 
mentary: “The Viscount White- 
law of Penrith is a big lad. It is. 
perhaps, just as well. A more 
fra gi le frame might have buckled 
under the combined weight of 
Lords Cledwjn and E/fa. and 
Lady Sccar. applied ai the end of a' 
long" hard summer in the Upper 
House." t M 

Reading those words in. New 
York, one experiences a sense of 
vertigo. Is this serious journalism 
or a mimicry of Evelyn Waugh? 
Arc those real people, or fictitious? 
And if- as one suspects - they are 
real people, why aren't they using 
their real names? 

■ Let me sav quickly that I have 
nothing against the House of 
Lordi-or the peerage in general, or 
titles and honours of any kind, 
even hereditary ones. They are 
indeed rather nice and serve the 
purpose of encouraging individ- 
uals to pursue lor maintain) 
personal distinction, something 
verv desirable in our democratic 
age’ In this respect, they resemble 
military decorations. 

But there is this difference: 
People do not ordinarily walk 
around in civilian clothes with 
their military decorations on loud 
display: nor do they change their 
names after being decorated. They 
reserve their use of medals and 
ribbons for ceremonial occasions. 

Whv whould it be otherwise 
with titles? Why should anyone 
wish it to be otherwise? 

So I will make a modest 
proposal: From this time on. let 
the British media ignore all titles 
except on ceremonial oicadons. 
Call people Mr. or Miss. Mrs or 
even Ms. Let everyone travel 
through life under his or her real 
name : Oil ceremonial occasions, 
tlieir assumed names may he given 
in parenthesis, or rice versa. 

As many will be quick to realize, 
this is a somewhat less innocent 
proposal than it seems. That is 
because it touches on one of the 
most sensitive of British concerns. 

I refer, of course, to class and class 
consciousness. 

The English arc a very peculiar 
people. They exude class distinc- 
tions and consciousness as a 
spider exudes his web. But. unlike 
the spider, a great many English- 
men (and many more Welsh and 
Scots) find themselves trapped in 
their own web. and are likely to 
become irritated, frustrated . or 
even downright enraged. This is . 
an unhealthy situation. 

1 remember seeing John 
Osborne's Look Back hr Anger 
early in its London run. My 
younger British friends thought ft 
was a wonderful play. I was 


completely baffled. Why didn t 
this hero simply tell his wife s 
foi her and family to go away and 
slop bothering him? Indeed, ihcv 
weren't bothering him. so far as l 
could determine, hut he was 
nevertheless bothered by them — 
bothered to the point of fury- 
Obviously, it had something io do 
with the sense .of class, but. I 
couldn't figure out what, or why. 

l also 'reeall whervas co-editor 
with Stephen Spender of En-

imagination, though in way’s that 
an American could not easily 
comprehend. Why 'should anyone 
much care whether a “napkin” is 
or is not a “serviette"? 

But it is clear that the British 
people do care. It is. also dear to 
me that there is an element of self- 
destructiveness in this caring. 
Since returning to; America, al- 
most three decades ago. I have 
met dozens of British emigres who 
have assured me -that escaping 
from the “class system" way one of 
the blessings they most appre- 
ciated in America. When I in- 
quired further, it always turned 
out that this “class system” was 
less a sociological reality than a 
subjective code that governed 
perception and 'sensibility. But it 
was nonetheless real for that 

So it does seem to me that the 
British media — print, radio and 
tele vision — would alleviaie.much 
psychic anxiety, and diminish 
whal. in extreme cases, amounts 
to psychic trauma, if they simply 
began to ignore all those titles in

I have recently started collect- 
ing teabags and already have a ■ 
collection of over 600.-What: 
was the earliest known teabag? — 
CM. of Newcastle. 

As for as we know, the earliest 
teabag was made as long ago as 
1 824 by Mrs Harriet Townsend of 
BristoL It was hand stitched from 
finest Irish linen, and em- 
broidered with a scene from Byron 
on one side and with homely 
proverbs on the other, it cos: the 
equivalent of a working man's 
annual wage, so it was presumably 
not intended fora mass markeL it 
was, by the way, re-usable — one 
simply unstitched the teabag after 
use and filled it with fresh tea. 

The second known teabag was 
made in 1825. also by Mrs Harriet 
Townsend. By 1830 she was up to 
three teabags a year. - 
1 enclose a photograph of a . . 

picture which I recently fotmd in 
my attic. It is dated 1850, and 
is of an unknown Victorian lady* 
who seems to be sewing or 
knitting. Can yoa tell me anything 
about it? — GLM. of BtackpooL - - 
Yes. It is rubbish. 

Can you teD me anything else 
about It? - G JVL of Blackpool; 

Yes. Very often when wc find an 
object that is rubbish al first sight, 
there are often ways of increasing 
its value by careful juggling with 
the facts. If. for instance, this 
turned out to be the only known 
portrait ofMrsHaniei Townsend 
actually making one of her fabu- 
lous teabags, and this can be done 
with the right expea then your 
painting would be worth thou- 
sands of pounds. At least, it would 
be when the early history .of 
teabags became more popular. 

I recently went through my at- 
tic in the hope of finding some- 
thing incredibly valuable 
among the usual family rubbish. . 
Much to my chagrin, I found 
the attic entirely bare except for. ' 
the water tank. I enclose a pic- , 
tore of tite water uni, which has 
been iu the family for genera- • • 
tions-Doyou think it is worth 
anything? - M.T ofS.W.1 1. 

It is hard to tell from your 
photo, which seems to have been 
taken in the dark, but this could be 
a;veiy rare find, if indeed it is an 
example of the Townsend Utility 
Tea Carrier. At the outbreak of the 
Crimean War. there was a sudden 
demand for new methods' of 


refreshment , for. the troops, and. 
Mrc Harriet Townsend of Bristol 
invented the first method of 
dispensing 'tea en masse. She 
mounted a tank on wheels and put 
pOfow-slips filled with tea into the 
boiling water, these are believed to 
be the biggest tea-bags ever made.

was adapted .to.' make the first 
water cannon... . V-

Certainly. The very first water

filled with water was laid down in 
the expected path of- the unruly

up so much that when they turned

MORE THAN A MOTORWAY 

outer London orbital road housing demand in a tract of Mr Bottomlev. like Mr 


Eye to the future in education

,an ?- Through traffic, es- 
heavy goods vehicles,

conurbation relatively pain- 
es %- LffVston roads would be 
spared. At the expense of huge 
landscaping works for the 
**2S«.1he obtrusiveness of the 
motorway itself would be 
tntnhtijsed. 

Thtfplanners of this all-too- 
successful road were Pangloss- 
,an - . They underestimated 
traffic volumes, and especially 
the extent to which the exis- 
I tence of the road would gen- 
\ erate new traffic, much of it for 
l journeys within the conurba- 
I lion. ■ 

A cynic jnighl wonder if the 
oSviops weak j n the girdle 
round London, the Dartford 
Tunnel under the Thames, was 
left deliberately as a bottle- 
neck in order to deter traffic by 
queuing. Such far sightedness 
would be out of character. The 
planners of the M25 (under 
which, description fall the 
members of at least two Cabi- 
nets .of opposite political 
philosophy and a generation of 
engineers and consultants) re- 
fused to make preparation for 
the road's premier effect. They 

treated the M25 as a mere road 
instead of also as a generator of 
ccffinomic^tdcvclopmcnt and 


housing demand in a tract of 
land that is already under 
heavy pressure and where 
development is by official 
edict under “severe restraint”. 

To the motorist user of the 
M25. any decision to remedy 
congestion on the road will be 
welcome. The decision to up- 
grade the south-eastern section 
of the North Circular Road 
and to build a new bridge to 
cany it over the Thames looks 
sensible as a way of reducing 
pressure on the motorway. It is 
not without irony, however, 
that an inner-orbital road is 
now being used to relieve an 
outer-orbital road the justifica- 
tion for which originally was to 
obviate the need for the inner 
orbital to be upgraded. 

The Department of Trans- 
port has announced that a 
heavily over-used section of 
the motorway around the M3 
interchange is to be widened, 
and has promised a watching 
brief over other sections of 
road, with a view to increasing 
their capacity if necessary. The 
Department, a frequent butt of 
criticism, has begun to prove 
itself an able manager of road 

refurbishment programmes 
and there is every good reason 
to accept Mr Peter Bouomley’s 
assurances that the flow of 
vehicles on the road will be 
improved “within months". 


Mr Botiomley, like Mrs Linda 
Chalker before him. is finding 
the Department of Transport a 
kind home for a Minister with 
no fixed views about the 
expenditure of public money. 

Widening the M25 between 
junctions 10 and 13 is simple. 
It does not substitute for the 
further choices which the 
motorway’s existence will 
present to this Government 
and its successors. Among. 
these is the balance to be 
struck in the motorway’s use 
between “local” traffic and- 
long distance users. Conges- 
tion on the motorway may 
require a reduction in the 
number of access points. The 
movement of vehicles within 
the London conurbation itself 
is part of the equation, insepa- 
rable from decisions about the 
public transport network and 
its subsidies. Perhaps most 
pressing of all is the dawning' 
recognition that the motorway 
is attracting development, 
from warehouses to new 
houses, and provision will 
have to be made right around 
the green belt- 
Expanding the M2S’s capac- 
ity is easy. Expanding the 
capacity of the south east of 
England to grow without 
reducing the amenity and 
“quality of life" of the inhab- 
itants of the shires around the 
capital is impossible. 


A HELPING HAND FOR SUDAN 


Last wetk’s decision by the 
Sudanese government to break 
off talks with the rebel Suda- 
nese People’s Liberation Army 
has dashed whatever hope 
■remained of a swift conclusion 
to thcrivfl war in the south. As 
a result, the unfortunate 
inhabitants of southern Sudan 
arc likply to bear the full force 
of ihcpresenl famine; there is a 
risk of further instability. 
gifTenshatpyhc present govern- 
ment jame to power last May- 
on a pledge to end the civil 
war. and any chance of eco- 
nomy recovery has been post- 
pone^ indefinitely. 

The logical course for the 
Sudanese government now 
woulej be to resume negotia- 
tions fs soon as possible. Bui 
quite apart from the usual 
Sudarpe preference for doing 
no*5?£Vhe Prime Minister. 
Sadcqlaf-Mahdt. is swayed by 
concern for his own position in 
Khartoum where feeling is 
running strongly against the 
rebels. 

Notonly was public opinion 
in the capital outraged by the 
shooting down of the civilian 
airliner, but the outstanding 
demand of the rebels for the 
repeal : of Islamic Sharia law 
cannot be granted without 


creating intolerable pressure in 
the north. Though weak in the 
country as a whole, the Mus- 
lim Brothers have the ability 
to paralyse the capital with 
riots. 

Eventually, some form of 
compromise will have to be 
reached which involves grant- 
ing a greater share of power for 
southerners in the central gov- 
ernment. The north needs the 
resources of the south, and the 
south, riven with tribal rival- 
ries, could not survive on its 
own. But can the traditional 
northern feelings of contempt 
for the southerners be modi- 
fied? 

. . While there is little the rest _ 
of the world can do to help 
solve such fundamental prob- 
lems. the Immediate course of 
events is already being in- 
fluenced by outside interests. 

It is to the advantage of both 
the Russians and the Ethio- 
pians. who provide bases and 
support for the SPLA. that 
pro-Wesiem Sudan should be 
destabilized, ll was perhaps to 
lessen these pressures that 
Sadcq al-Mahdi recently vis- 
ited Moscow, but it is hard to 
see an end to the war along 
that route. 

Colonel Gadaffi has also 
entered the scene. At the 


invitation of the Sudanese 
government, he ha% provided a 
small amount of military assis- 
tance to the government. But 
Colonel Gadaffi is a dubious 
helpmeet. He has always had 
ambitions to extend his em- 
pire to the Red Sea and once 
he has a foot in the door, he 
may be reluctant to remove iL 

It is clearly in the interests of 
the West that the new Suda- 
nese government should 
strengthen its fragile pro-West- 
ern democracy and achieve 
stability. But Sadcq al-Mahdi 
cannot afford to be tarred with 
the overtly pro-Western brush 
of his predecessor, nor can he 
be seen to accept the amount 
‘of military aid which would 
"suggest. client status. However, 
he docs need — and would 
doubtless accept — economic 
aid and a discreet increase in 
the military assistance he now 
receives. 

Britain already provides 
military' training on a modest 
scale, but more help along 
these lines is needed, particu- 
larly in counlcr-insurgencv 
measures. Such assistance wifi 
not defeat the rebels in itself, 
but it may strengthen the 
Sudanese government’s hand 
in forging what must, in the 
end. be a negotiated solution. 


LITHUANIA REMEMBERED 


Moscow intends to impress 
the world with an image of 
religious toleration by allow- 
ing! ‘clcbthtions to mark the 
millennium of Russian Ortho- 
doxy in 1988. But there is an 
earlier anniversary which the 
Soviet authorities are less will- 
ing to commemorate: the 
600th anniversary of the com- 
ing of Christianity to Lithua- 
nia which falls next year. 

Already there is pressure 
frpm priests and people in this 
staunchly Catholic state to 
invite Pope John Paul II to 
attend the celebrations. Re- 
cently' 127 priests petitioned 
their bishops to start the 
delicate diplomacy necesssary 
for lavish. And the Pope 
himself has expressed his in- 
terest in a visit. Writing last 
May~ to Bishop Julijonas 
Stcponavicius (who is 
rumoured to have been 
apppointed cardinal in pectore 
seven years ago), the Pope 
promised to be with the 
Lithuanians during their 
celebrations, “in prayer and in 
I all Qthri possible ways”. But 
liic atheist authorities in 
IjthuaU 3 havc made it known 
that a papal visit is unlikely.

documents which circulate 
there - and eventually reach 
the West - describe mass 
demonstrations in defence of 
persecuted priests and patri-

underground Chronicle of the 
Lithuanian Catholic Church 
describes the funeral of Father 
Juozas Zdcbskis. who died last 
February in a car accident 
under suspicious circum- 
stances and reminds its read- 
ers of other limes when priests 
have been murdered without 
the perpetrators being brought 
to justice. 

The briefly independent 
slate of Lithuania was incor- 
porated into the Soviet Union 
in 1 940. and here, as in 
Poland, the blend of religious 
and nationalist feelings is a 
potentially explosive mix. A 
papal visit would be a cal- 
culated risk on the part of the 
Soviet authorities. This risk 
would be all the greater follow- 
ing the Chernobyl disaster, 
which caused widespread pro-

due to come on stream later

Paying in cathedrals 

From Mrs R. IV. Schem e! 

Sir. Charging admission to re- 
ligious . and historical places of 
worship (leading article, August 
I S) should be considered a fact of 
life rather than an act of merce- 
nary effrontery. 


Western countries, which have 
refused to to recognize the 
legality of Soviet rule there. 
Prisoners of conscience such 
as Father Tamkevicius. now- 
serving a six-year sentence in a 
labour camp, arc supported by 
human rights groups: the poet 
Gintautas Icsmanias was 
named an honorary member 
of the American centre of the 
International Pen Club when 
serving a six-year term in strict 
regime camps. And Baltic 
cmgircs ha\c designated Au- 
gust 23 a “Black Ribbon Day” 
to commemorate the anniver- 
sary of the Mololov-Ribbcn- 
trop Pact in 1939 which 
opened the door to the Soviet 
occupation of the Baltic states. 
But the scale of protest hardly 
compares with that raised, for 
example, over apartheid in 
South Africa. 

A papal visit to Vilnius next 
year would certainly be greeted 
with a massive public 
demonstration of loyalty to a 
faith older than communism. 
But whether or not a Papal 
visit materializes — and the 
scales must be lipped against 
it — the Lithuanians and their 
neighbours deserve to be 
remembered by the rest of the 
world, and noi just in their 
anniversary year. 

Perhaps a cathedral/abbey pass, 
similar to National Trust 
membership, would encourage 
visits to churches and spread the 
visitors around to some of ihc 
lesser known yet inspiring cathe- 
drals. 

The tourist who is a sincere 
cathedral “bulT'. when confronted 
with paying an entrance fee. will 
probably choose in favour of 
louring "Westminster Abbey and 
forego buying the extra souvenir; 
while the devout souvenir hunter 
will probably choose in favour ofa 
free stroll through Si James's Park 
and leave the abbey less crowded.

From Dr Christopher Cullen 
..Sir, Science teachers have been 
'assured that the new GCSE sylla- 
buses will lead to a greater 
awareness of the social, economic, 
environmental and other implica- 
. lions of their subjects. I have just 
received a specimen paper for 
GCSE electronics from the Mid- 
Jand Examining Group, in which 
candidates are asked to list the 
advantages and disadvantages of 
using microprocessors in the con- 
trol systems of cars. 

In the accompanying “Guide- 
lines for marking” the first 
“disadvantage” listed is that the 
new design “might require fewer 
people to assemble the car”. 

Are we to understand that an 
answer which listed this as an 
advantage would have been 
marked wrong? If the effect of 
GCSE-style social awareness is to 
inculcate such Luddite attitudes in 
our future technologists there will 
soon be no British car industry to 
employ them, however finely their 
environmental sensitivities may 
have been honed. 

Perhaps the examiner who set 
the question might tike to com-

From Dr H. M. R. E. Mayr-

Sir, it is a pity that the President of 
the Historical Association (August 
19) should hijack his own ex- 
cellent point about English lan- 
guage teaching with the very 
dubious one about compulsory 
twentieth-century British history 
for all 14 - 16-year-olds. It is 
doubtful whether boys and girls of 
this age could learn much that 
would help them specifically as 
voting citizens, and extremely 
dangerous to suggest that knowl- 
edge rather than interest is the 
right basis for voting. 

What one acquires from the 
study of history, apart from pure 
interest (in the other sense), is an 

Academic standards 

From Professor P. .-f. Reynolds 
Sir. Your Education Correspon- 
dent has either read with only half 
an eye the report on academic 
standards in universities on which 
she writes (August 20) or has 
decided deliberately to ignore a 
major problem to which the report 
refers. 

It is not possible to compare an 
apple with a lamb chop except in 
terms of individual preference. It 
is possible to compare an apple 
with another apple by identifying 
a number of standards — or 
measures - such as sweetness, 
crispness, juiciness, by which it 
can be generally agreed that this 
apple is belter than that one. 

It would, of course, be possible 
so to “standardize" degree pro- 
grammes that they could be 
compared in the same way as two 
apples. This would require, in the 
words of the report 
an explicit and exclusive 
determination of the purposes of 
higher education and a universally- 
applied blueprint of entry criteria, of 
teaching and assessment processes, 
and of classification procedures. 

It has long been thought — 
perhaps mistakenly — that one of 

Locusts in Africa 

From Mrs Angus Mitchell 
Sir. You reported on August 5 that 
locust swarms were building up in 
Africa. 

In his reminiscences my grand- 
father. Major-General R. E Ken- 
yon. RE wTote: “The hardest 
physical work I have ever had was 
destroying locusts in Cyprus." 

In 1883 canvas screens were 
erected at right angles to the line of 
march of hopping locusts. Along 
the top of each screen was a broad 
strip of oilcloth, kept slippery by 
men with sponges full of oil. AL 
intervals were similar vertical oily 

St John’s Lodge 

From the President of the 
Commonwealth Association of 
Architects 

Sir. Lord Perth's timely observa- 
tions (feature. August 6) on the St 
John’s Lodge. Regent's Park fiasco 
and the consequent loss to Lon- 
don of the great Fred Koch 
collection leads one to wonder, yet 
again, why we never learn from 
our nearest neighbours in France. 

The new Picasso Museum in 
! Paris is housed in a previously 
n^lected 1 7th-ceniury master- 
piece known as the Hotel Sale on 
the rue de Thorigny. which is older 
and of far greater architectural 
distinction than the dreary St 
John's Lodge. 

With characteristic flair, its 
architect Roland Simounet has 
transformed the interior to create 
a thoroughly 20th-century context 
for the Picasso collection and done 
it in an authoritative and imagi- 
native way which counter-bal- 
ances perfectly the old and the 
new. 

There is no sign of hesitant 
historically pedantic procrastina- 
tion. As a result Paris now 
deservedly possesses a superb 
setting for an incomparable collec- 
tion. giving back to the Marais 
quartera revitalised building that 
is a joy. both visually and 
organisationally, to visit 
How sad that such an opportu- 
nity has been unnecessarily lost to 
London, and for reasons that do 
not bear scrutiny.

From Mr John Hawes 
Sir, Your Education 
Correspondent's, report (August 
12) on the- expected enquiry into 
the ways schools teach English bad 
a particular relevance for me when 
read here in France. My special 
interest is in the effect of a lack of 
knowledge of English grammar on 
the study of foreign languages. 

Both my elder children have 
studied modern languages for A 
level. As a modern-language 
graduate, working in industry and 
using my languages regularly. I 
have been able to help them with 
their work. Not surprisingly, the 
intricacy of French grammar was 
one problem area for them but. 
before we could tackle that prob- - 
Icm. 1 had to initiate them in the 
basics of English grammar, they 
had practically no knowledge of.it 
at all. 

Industry finds it extremely diffi- 
cult to recruit people with a good 
knowledge of one or more Euro- 
pean Languages. I suggest that by 
not (caching English grammar in 
our schools wc are contributing to 
this scarcity by making the study 
of foreign languages harder' and 
therefore less attractive. 

Grammar is the framework of 
language and- would not a Utile 
knowledge of it — say taught in the 
first year of secondary schooling — 
help the power of written and 
spoken communication which are 
so important for the young, at 
every level of attainment when 
competing for a first job? 

Yours faithfully.

the great strengths of the British 
university system was its ability to 
offer a variety of degree pro- 
grammes. structured in different 
ways, combining different sub- 
jects. using different methodolo- 
gies. taught and assessed by 
• different methods. 

If this variety is not to be lost it 
is not possible to lay down “what 
standards should be reached by 
students who are awarded a first- 
class degree or an upper second, 
and in relation to what body of 
knowledge” (in your 
Correspondent's words). 

The above statements arc. of 
course, too stark, as the report 
recognizes. The question is Row 
far and in what ways wc should 
standardize (thus reducing vari- 
ety) in order to give comparisons 
greater validity. 

On this opinions-will differ. It is 
likely that the more advanced the 
education the less far should 
standardization go. But the prob- 
lem is a real one and it docs not 
help simply to ignore iL

strips, leading into deep pits. 

The locusts could not pass the 
oilcloth, fell into the pits “so fast 
that the sound was like rushing, 
water” and were smothered by 
shovelfuls of earth. 

With 315 miles of screens, at 
least 195.000 million locusts were 
destroyed in 1883 and one quarter 
of that number in 1884. Thereafter 
Cyprus was not troubled by 
locusts.

For the record 

From Mr Mark Stone 
Sir. This morning I went to collect 
my car, which had been repaired 
after a crash. As I was comprehen- 
sively insured and in no way 
responsible for the crash I as- 
sumed all I had to do was sign for 
the car and drive off. 

No! I had to pay a £25 
surcharge. I took the receipt to my 
insurance broker, who tells me he 
will send this to my insurance 
company (who paid for the car to 
be repaired) and it will send my 
broker £25. He will then send me a 
cheque for £25.

Totally improper 

From Mr Stuart I. Alexander 
Sir. When 1 was a carpenter in 
New Zealand we normally worked 
to the nearest eighth of an inch, 
and used “full” and “bare” to 
describe sixteenths. One and three 
sixteenths — a mouthful to say. let 
alone bawl across a windy build- 
ing site — would therefore be 
expressed either as “one and an 
eighth full” or as “one and a 
quarter bare”. I found this useful, 
and still mutter such measure- 
ments to myself as I work on jobs 
in my flaL 

Are people who ask for a full 
fraction therefore actually seeking 

a little more? 

Yours faithfully.

Refugee status 
in Djibouti 

From Dr A/. Louise Pirouet 
Sir. May 1 draw attention to a 
further hidden refugee crisis 
affecting some 1 7.000 refugees in 
Djibouti. They have received a 
letter, dated July 29. 1986 and 
signed by the Minisjer of the 
Interior, in which they are told, 
that the majority of them left 
Ethiopia for reasons which no 
longer exist .today and they should 
therefore no longer be considered 
as refugees. 

If they accept voluntary repatri- 
ation under the amnesty pro- 
claimed by the Dengue in 1983 
they will receive assistance, to do 
so. However, 

All those who do not accept to 
repatriate voluntarily to Ethiopia, 
must request individually continu- 
ation of their refugee status. A 
special Committee will be created by 
the Qjibouiian-Auihorities to exam- 
ine those requests and will take 
decisions rapidly which would not 

be subject to appeal All those 

who will havc lost their refugee 
status must leave the Qfiboutian 
territory. They will not receive, any 
assistance of any kind as opposed! to 
those who will repatriate mt- 
imtarify ... In the meanwhile and 
with immediate effect all pro- 
gramme*: iff' assistance for resettle- 
nwnt to . third . countries arc 
suspended [emphasis in original]. 4 

Faced with this, threat, the 
refugees arc- appealing to .the 
international community. The po- 
sition of the UN High Commis- 
sion for Refugees is unclean on the 
one hand they are involved in this 
programme of “voluntary” 
repatriation; on the other they are 
committed as. an organisation to 
Lhe protection of refugees and the 
prevention of refoulement. 

Although the Deigue has pro- 
claimed an amnesty for returned, 
it has to be remembered that 
political imprisonment and tor- 
ture on a wide scale are still 
practised in Ethiopia. Amnesty 
International's Ethiopia : Political 
Imprisonment and Torture, pub- 
lished in June of -this 
year, welcomes recent prisoner re- 
leases but documents continuing 
and serious abuses of human 
rights. 

The statement by the 
Djiboulian authorities that the 
conditions which drove ■ people 
into exile no longer obtain is 
therefore difficult to understand. 
The refugees include many who 
fled for their lives to avoid torture 
and imprisonment for political 
opinions or because of their ethnic 
origins. 

Yours sincerely. . .

Morality and Aids 

From Dr R.P. T DatcnportJ lines 
Sir. In -his vindictive article- on 
Aids (August 19) Digby Anderson 
claims that disseminating 
information about methods of 
transmission of the disease is of 
liule preventive value and calls 
Instead foremphasisof “the moral- 
aspects of Aids” and a reassertion 
of “traditional morality”: Anyone 
familiar with ihc-sotiai of medical- 
history of sexually transmitted 
diseases could tell him that such- 
advice is disastrous. ~ 

In the period when syphilis was 
potentially a fatal illness attempts 
to reduce it by- moralistic hector- 
ing not- only failed to restrain 
scxual'-contacls', by 

stigmatising the disease, made it 
less likely for victims to seek 
medical advice. 

Publicising methods of pro- 
phylaxis — that is. making sex 
safer — conversely had consid- 
erable impact before the discovery 
of curative drugs like Salvarsan. 
Human nature docs not change: 
what was bad policy with syphilis 
will be bad policy with Aids. 

Mr Anderson makes other ' 
claims which- arc medically du- 
bious. but the most objectionable 
feature of his article is cowardli- 
ness: “I am not. yet hounding 
homosexuals”, he writes, knowing 
full weH that if his precepts were 
followed, hounding ofa peculiarly 
cruel sort would ensue.

Way ahead for water i 

From Councillor Nadia Conway 
Sir. I hope your readers won’t be 
misled by the article by. Alex 
Henney. “The way ahead for 
water” (August 19), into believing 
that consumer consultative com- 
mittees are merely mouthpieces 
for the water companies. 

I am a member of such a ■ 
committee; appointed by my local 
borough — other members being 
appointed by various interest 
groups —and ! do not think any of 
us see our job .as maintaining a 
front for the water authorities. 

On the contrary, we scrutinize 
its activities closely and act as 
intermediaries for any complaints 
or queries from consumers. 

All the functions that Mr 
Henney would require of an 
independent commission are cov- 
ered by existing consumer consul- 
tative committees. Even if the 
committees were to be given 
statutory powers of an indepen- 
dent commission their influence 
would still be limited to the 
enthusiasm and commitment of 
their members. 

The formation of statutory bod- 
ies is not a short cut to a consu- 
mers’ nirvana and I frankly doubt 
that consumers would, be better 
served under ^different system. .. 

Yours truly.

ON THIS DAY 


AUGUST 26. 1875 

Captain Matthew Webb {1848- 
I883)swam from Dooer to Calais 
in 21 hr 45^ min, covering nearly 

40 miles. On July 24. 1883. he was 
drowned while attempting to swim 
the rapids and whirlpool at the 
foot of Niagara Falls. The record 
time for the Channel crossing 
(Dooer— Gris-Nez) is 7 hr 40 min, 
set by Penny Deem in July, 1978. 


1 C APTAIN WEB B 

The second attempt of Captain 
Webb to swim across the Channel 
i has -been crowned with success 
after a display of indomitable 
courage and extraordinary powers 
of endurance. 

1 At four minutes to 1 o'clock' on 
Tuesday afternoon Captain Webb 
' dived from the steps at the bead of 
t the Admiralty Pier, Dover, and at 
41 minutes past 10 o'clock yester- 
; day morning he touched the sands 
[ on the French coast, about a couple 

: of hundred yards to the west of the 

■ pier at Calais, having remained in 
1 the water, without even touching a 
boat on his. way, no less than 21% 

1 hours. During the early part of the 
journey Captain Webb was partic- 
ularly favoured by the weather. 
The sea was quite calm, and not a 
• breath of wind could be felt. 

« Consequently, the lugger which 
accompanied him across the Chan- 
nel had, for the greater part of the 
way, to be roweo. Captain Webb 
was also accompanied by two small 
rowing boats in immediate atten- 
\ dance, upon himself, one contain- 
ing his cousin, Mr. Ward, who 
supplied him occasionally with 
refreshments, and one of the 
referees who had been appointed at 
Captain Webb's own request to see 
fair play, and the other to take 
messages backwards and forwards 
to the lugger. Nothing occurred 
particularly worthy of comment 
until about 9 o'clock, when Captain 
Webb complained of being stung 
. by a jelly fish, and asked for a little 
brandy. He had previously been 
supplied, with some cod liver oil 
» and hot coffee. The weather was 
simply perfect and Captain Webb 
L was swimming with a long clean 
breast stroke which drove him well 
through the water, and, owing, to 
the phosphorescent state of the 
sea. occasionally surrounded him 
with a sort of halo. At 10.30 he was 
i visited by a steam tug, which had 
put off from Dover for the purpose, 

, and which, .strange to say, left the 
man who had ploughed through Lhe 
waves for over nine hours without 
even the encouragement of a 
parting cheer. At .1 1.45, however, a 
Dover boat, on its way to Calais, 
gave cheer after cheer to greet the 
man who had already done so 
- much, and ohe.of the boats burnt a 
I red llght, which.cast a mddy glow 
lover the' scene and lighted up the] 

- I face of Captain Webb, so that he I 

- (was distinctly,- seen by -those on I

[however, was not the -case. He J 
(struggled manfully on. and by 91

J of crested waves. He was evidently [ 
j fearfully exhausted. The tide was j

[which was at 9.45 only half a mile [ 

[ distant. Fortunately a boat belong- [

Restored windmill helps to set 
the wheels of industry turning 





This impressive 165-year-old 
windmill is the crowning glory of 
an 80-acre business park being 
built by the St Martins Construc- 
tion Group in Swindon, Wiltshire 
(Angella Johnson writes). 

The original windmill base, a 
listed balding, was moved brick by 
brick from an old people's borne in 
the village of Chiseldon, about six 
miles away. 

It cost St Martins two tennis 
courts worth £1,600 for a local 
sports centre and several thou- 
sand pounds to be reconstructed 


on its present site, just west of 
Swindon. 

Mr Lindsey Robinson, develop- 
ment surveyor for the group, said: 
“When we acquired me land it 
was called Windmill Hill by local 
people, even though there was 
neither a windmill nor a hill there. 
It therefore seemed natural for us 
to find a windmill and put it on the 
site. 

“Then we heard there was a 
dilapidated old windmill near by 
which could be rebnOt in the 
centre of the business park**. 


The new mflJ is 40ft high and 
has been restored to partial 
working order with a new top and 
sails. 

So successful has been the move 
that the local council is consid- 
ering placing a rateable value of 
£4,000 on die building, which they 
describe as an advertising feature. 

St Martins are appealing 
against the rate which they say is 
too high for a building not being 
used and which was only saved 
from ruin by their reconstruction 
work.

A new Museum of the Iron 
Age is lo open in Andover, 
Hampshire, nexi month to 
display the finds from the 
excavations at Danebury 
Camp, a hillfori near by. 
Housed in a convened school 
(he museum will include life- 
sized reconstructions of Iron 
Age life based on discoveries 
at Danebury. 

The project has been set up 
by Hampshire County Coun- 
cil which has also just bought 
more than 18 acres of land 
near the hillfon to protect its 
archaeological potential. 

“This area provides the 
crucial link between 
Danebury and its landscape, 
and it is very satisfactory that 
it is now in public ownership", 
said Professor Barry Cunliffe, 
of Oxford University, who is 
directing the excavations. 

"It will improve the land- 
scape presentation of the site, 
and preserve Lhe archaeologi- 
cal features, which include a 
very long linear earthwork 
I. which is bordered by Iron Age 


fields and stock enclosures", 
he said. 

Professor Cunliffe plans to 
begin work outside the ram- 
parts of Danebury next year, 
at a point where the newly 
acquired land joins the area 
already owned by the council. 
He feels that this is likely to 
have been where a market was 
held in prehistoric times, a 
view reinforced by the finding 
near by of coins of the first 
century AD. 

These coins, of the 
Atrebates tribe who lived in 
the area prior to the Roman 
conquest of 43 AD. show that 
activity al Danebury contin- 
ued after the fort itself was 
abandoned around 100 BC. 

This year's excavations, the 
eighteenth season and the last 
inside the ramparts, are un- 
covering the remains of round 
houses of the last two centu- 
ries of the fon’s history. 

The houses were built io a 
quarry hollow originally dug 
around 400 BC to obtain 
material for enlarging the 


ramparts. As the hollow silted 
up. it formed a protected area 
away from the wind in which 
people could live, although 
Professor Cunliffe believes 
that the more important 
dwellings were further up the 
slope towards the centre of the 
fort. 

The largest house found this 
year is nine metres (30ft) in 
diameter, and seems to have 
been associated with storage 

K its to one side. A decorated 
ronze ring from a horse's 
harness was found on the 
floor. A granary, with six large 
posts holding up the floor, has 
also been further excavated. 

As digging inside Danebury 
finishes, an area covering a 
fifth of the fort has been 
designated as an "archaeologi- 
cal reserve" which will not be 
dug for at least a century, and 
which is being kept free of tree 
growth to preserve the buried 
features. Other areas wil be 
left for possible future digging 
within that period.

The process of combining 
(he Son's energy with water 
and carbon dioxide in photo- 
synthesis, essential to all 
higher forms of life, is not 
productive enough as far as 
farmers and vegetable growers 
are concerned. 

Because some plants lose a 
third of the organic material 
they have produced, biologists 
at the Agricnltnral and Food 
Research Conacil’s 
Rotfaamsted Experimental 
Station are trying to improve 
on Mother Natere to get better 
crops. 

The most important and 
best understood . process of 
photosynthesis is carbon fixa- 
tion, when carbon dioxide 
from the air is am voted into 
_ ir. From man's point of 
view, plants do undo that my 
well; no sooner have they 
produced sugar than they 
break down a significant 
proportion- of It by photo- 
respiration and torn it back 
into carton d io xide by co»-

useful purpose. 

dearly, it is in the grow e r ' s 
interest to eliminate or, at 
least reduce this waste. 

Photorespiration is a 
continuous process, because 
the vital catalyst of carton 
fixation, the enzyme Rnbisco 
(ribulose bisphosphate car- 
boxylase) contributes both to 
the malting of sugar and to 
rec on v er t in g it into carbon 
dioxide. 

Originally Rubisco's in- 
discriminate beharhmr did not 
matter, became it started life 
in organisms rich in carbon 
dioxide and poor in oxygen. 
Today, even though some 
modern plants use Rnbisco 
more efficiently, the process is 
still unacceptably wasteful. 

At Rothamsted, researchers 
are trying to develope an 
enzyme that win prevent 
photorespiration. To do that 
they are investigating Rnbisco 
to find oat how its varions 
components contribnte to 
photorespiration. 


that the marked 
difference between the incom- 
ing and outgoing carbon di- 
oxide was due to Rnbisco, they 
decided to engineer genetically 
an improved Rnbisco. Bat 
when they studied the resalts 
of their first experiments to 
see what changes had occurred 
in the catalytic activity of the 
mutants, they realized their 
new Rabsco enzyme was 
producing less sugar than the 
one in natere. 

This, of course, was the 
exact opposite of what they 
wanted to achieve. But, para- 
doxically, they were en- 
couraged by these preliminary 
results, because they proved 
that Rubisco coeld be manipu- 
lated. 

They hope that they will be 
able eventually to create a 
strain that in a test tube will 
reduce 

losses due to pi 

But, equally, they me .aware 
that a wide gap crisis between 
the laboratory and the field. 


Forest tax 
loophole 
criticized 

Steve Davis, the snooker 
player, and Cockney enter- 
tainers. Chas and Dave, are 
among many of Britain's high 
income earners who profit 
from lax loopholes which fiiel 
the multi-million pound coni- 
fer afforestation industry, 
according to a report to be 
published today. The report. 
The Theft of the Hills - 
Afforestation in Scotland , pub- 
lished by the - Ramblers' 
Association and the World 
Wildlife Fund, has been writ- 
ten by Mr Stephen Tompkins 
who has spent the past six 
years working for the Eco- 
nomic Forestry Group advis- 
ing investors. It is the first shot 
in a new campaign, backed by 
the Council for the Protection 
of Rural England and the 
Royal Society for the Protect 
tion of Birds, lo end the tax 
benefits enabling high earners, 
including pop stars and City 
entrepreneurs to pay only 
£120 of the £400 cost of 
planting an acre of fast grow- 
ing conifers. 

Mr Tompkins says a hand- 
ful of companies, including 
the Economic Forestry Group, 
reap a combined turnover of 
up £40 million a year by 
helping investors make capital 
gains out of income that 
would otherwise be taxed at 
the top rate. 

He claims that the Govern- 
ment pays ten times more for 
subsidizing forestry than for 
sheep farming on the same 
land. 

The report says tax law 
allows Schedule D taxpayers 
to offset other income against

plantations mature they are 
sold as appreciating assets and 
owners can switch to Schedule 
B on which they pay tax on the 
rental value of the land, 
sometimes as little as 5 Op an 
acre. 

Mr David Cbndcr, assistant 
secretary of the Council for the 
Protection of Rural England, 
said the tax dodge had been 
acknowledged by the Govern- 
ment and three separate of- 
ficial estimates since 1979 had 
put its cost to the Exchequer at 
£10 million a year. 

“It is not right that the 
taxpayer should subsidize 
high income earners in this 
way”, he said. 

"But the worst cost is that it 
is encouraging silviculture of 
the worst kind for the environ- 
ment with short cycles of 
intensively planted and man- 
aged plantations. 

"These foreign conifers con- 
sume wild, open moorland 
and replace it with dull forests 
that are sterile for wildlife and 
contribute to acid rain 
problems."

So how do we picture the Sixties? 
Do we m feet picture the Sixties 
clearly at all, or are we sdJI too 
close to have succeeded in fusing a 
lot of scattered ideas satisfactorily 
into a coherent — let atone a 
reasonably accurate — whole? Any- 
way. it must be high time we put 
our notions on the subject m order 
why, already one musical, the 
revival of Cnarly Girl . , has opened 
in London with a full assumption 
of Sixties nostalgia in its audience, 
and a consequent assumption that 
they will recognize what they are 
seeing. And now the Fbndation 
Cartier, a recent addition to Paris’s 
cultural resources (it is in feet nr 
Jouy-en-Josas, a little way out in 
the Ile-de-France), is weighing in 
with an enormous show, accompa- 
nied by an even more enormous 
book-catalogue, which is intended 
to put an end to any residual 
vagueness on the subject. It is 
called, unequivocally, Les Annies 
60: La Decade triomp haute, and 
runs until September 30. 

Perhaps we do not quite see the 
Sixties as “triomphante". What do 
we think of? The deaths of Ken- 
nedy and Marilyn Monroe; the 
arrival of . the Beatles: Carnaby 
Street, Swinging London, -mini- 
skirts and Nehru jackets; Gagarin 
in space; flower-power and the May 
1968 upsets in Paris; drugs and 
sexual permissiveness . . . Not, 
perhaps, a particularly bad period, 
on balance, but surely a period of 
some uncertainty, with things very, 
much in a state of flux? The image 
presented at the Fondation Cartier 
is much simpler than that. The 
layout of the place, with a “village” 
of small exhibition areas, a large 
“bunker" which was apparently the 
headquarters of the Luftwaffe dur- 
ing the Occupation, and extensive 
grounds ready to be littered at will 
with large sculptures or, in this 
case, cars of the period, seems to 
lead somehow to snap judgement 
and shorthand evocation rather

than any in-depth e xami nation. 

Also, the point of view is 
necessarily French, and this means 
that, though the major events m 
the great world outside are mir- 
rored, a lot of the detail seems, for 
the time it is meant to represent, 
curiously old-fashioned. French 
pop music (prominently featured, 
of course) remained resolutely 
Fiftyish almost all through the 
decade; and you would imagine 
that flower-power and such had 
never existed at all, presumably 
- because the hippy way of life did 
not hit France until the Seventies, 
and then not in any form which 
would have rung bells in San 
Francisco. On the other hand, the 
section devoted to painting and 
sculpture does admirably remind 
us that Abstract Expressionism did 
not disappear overnight and that 
there were many strains besides tbe 
dominent ones of hard-edged, gar- 
ishly-coloured abstraction and me- 
dia-obsessed Pop Art. 

If we leave Jouy-en-Josas little 
clearer what we think of the Sixties 
than when we arrived, there are, as 
it happens, quite a number of other 
shows in Paris at the moment 
which throw additional sidelights 
on the question. The show at the 
Musee <TArt Moderne de la Ville 
de Paris until September 7, 196®, 
Les Nonveanx ReaBstes. is about a 
very small and precise group who 
called themselves that, or were so 
called by Pierre Reslany, who 
virtually invented the movement. 

They were realists not in terms of 
any illusionist approach to the 
depiction of reality in art, but 
because they used the actual matter 
of reality in their arL carefully 
preserving ready-made abstracts 
from the progressive and uneven 
stripping of posters from bill- 
boards. or squashing up waste 
metal or plastic into compressed 
cubes pregnant, possibly, with 
significance about the agonies and 
ecstasies of the consumer society. 


Some of the names are still 
familiar Christo, Yves Klein, 
Tinguely and Niki de Samt-PhaUe 
went on to bigger and better, or at 
arty rate more distinctive, things. 
But it is unlikely that names like 
RoteQa (the best of the tattered- 
poster conserves) or Hains or 
Dufrene or Deschamps mean 
much to anyone today. Nor, truth 
to tell, does this show present any 
very convincing evidence that they 
should. 

The Sixties also bulk large in the 
Centre Pompidou's major summer 
show. Qa’est-ce Qae La Sculpture 
moderate? (until October 13). This 
rapidly disclaims any intention of 
being a panorama or a comprehen- 
sive survey (though the organizers 
do incidentally remark bow odd it 
is that there has been no such show 
devoted to 20th-century sculpture 
in Paris since the Second World 
War): its intention is rather to raise 
the deeper and more impalpable 
question of what exactly we mean 
by modernity in the arts, and what, 
specifically, makes certain sculp- 
‘ tares of this century seem modern 
while others, closely contem- 
porary, do not In the event, one 
could be forgiven for regarding tbe 


that can be fitted into either only 
with a shoehorn, if that Ii probably 
.is as reasonable a formulation as 
any to say the sculpture property 
railed "modern” is not concerned, 
like 19th-century sculpture, with 
models in the world one can see, 
but with invisible models from the 
realm of the mind. Even so, are 
social-realists tike Gutfreund, or 
grotesque realists like Raymond 
Mason, or photorealisls like Duane 
Hansen, all to be dismissed as 
irrelevant to the century in which 
they have been working? 

In this summer season, as one 
might expect, the effects of the 
Sixties on that most notoriously 
Parisian of the arts, the art of haute 
couture, are certainly not to be left 
out The bigshowat the new Musee 
des Arts de la Mode in the Pavilion 
de Marsan is devoted to Yves Saint 
Laurent: 28 Arutees de creation 
(until October 26). and it is 
complemented by a show at the 
Musee des Arts Decoratifs on Yves 
Saint Laurent et !e theatre (until 
September 7). 

Elementary mathematics in- 
dicates that the key period in the 
making of Saint Laurent's reputa- 
tion must have been the Sixties. 


show as the long-needed survey: , and it is amazing to notice bow 


the didactic purpose is used 
primarily as an excuse for getting 
together a lot of very famous 
sculptures, and leaving us to ask 
our own questions and reach 
(hopefully) our own answers. But 
at least the layout is helpfully 
suggestive: go down one side and 
you encounter sculptures inspired 
by abstract notions, of form or 
ideology, while down the other side 
you encounter biological and or- 
ganic forms, based on a philosophy 
of nature and a respect for myth. 

Or so they say. Naturally there 
arc some, strictly geometric, which 
belong dearly in the first grouping, 
and some, soft and amorphous, 
which fit equally weD into the 
second. But there are many more 


much more distinctive and in- 
stantly recognizable the Sixties 
clothes are than those of any 
subsequent period. It is not just the 
well-over-the-knee hemlines, but 
the whole wildly inventive ap- 
proach, the sometimes glaring 
colours, the extreme eclecticism in 
the use of primitive and peasant 
motifs as well as highly sophis- 
ticated evocations of modem art 
movements — everything excites 
and dazzles. And, wonder of 
wonders, the dothes again begin to 
look outrageously elegant, rather 
than just grotesque or campy or, 
worst of all. faintly dowdy. The 
reconsideration of the Sixties to 
which Paris invites us does not 
come a minute before time.

Company is already a legend,

already in the making. If is the 
most thrilling production of a 
Greek tragedy I have seen in 
any language.' ■ 

'It has found an incom- 
parable setting in the univ- 
ersity's nobly-proportioned 
Old Courtyard, whose granite 
neo-classicism matches the 
stylistic references and sheer 
magnitude of YuJrio Nina- 
gawa. With a mass public 
facing its balustrade^ steps 
and triple doorways, it com- 
bines tbe qualities of an 
ancient amphitheatre and a 


Jason, or where slow marches 
are interrupted by the frenzied 
heroine scattering the chorus 
like dead leaves. It is also 
achieved musically through 
the interweaving of tbe 
chorus’s pentatonic unison 
and a feteful baroque death- 
march that reactivates 
Medea’s vengence. The power 
is intensified by the feet that it 
is at moments of climax that 
the most Japanese and the 
most weste rn conventions 
coincide. •

rounding effects, the Medea of 
Mikijiro Hire (last year’s Mac-

huge playing space. The one 
thing be does not suggest is an 
abandoned geisha. The tenor

Edinburgh at the weekend 
offered a choice of 20th-

ranged by Alexander Goehr. 
In that this provided coherent 
programmes, excellently per- 
formed, one can hardly com- 
plain. And in that it brought 
together for the first time in 


their degree of unanimity is 
almost uncanny: the second of 
Stravinsky's Three Pieces, for 
instance, was keenly presented 
as a little kaleidoscope for four 1 
players acting as one, and they 
also gave a fascinating account 
of Bart6k's Third Quartet, 
more bradngly incisive than 
barbaric. They were, too, the

The Princesse de Polignac, 
extraordinary patroness of the 
arts and particularly of music, 
is just about the ideal subject 
for a didactic event like this, 
which was devised by Michael 
Rennison and reasonably 
enough called “An Evening 
with the Princesse de Pol- 
ignac". 

If one were to lake the easy 
option, one could complete 
this review simply by listing 
some of the great figures she 
helped or otherwise knew: 
artists, musicians, writers 
alike. As it was. the effect of 
having the names of such a 
diverse array of genius pre- 
sented side by side, many 
illustrated by slides, revealed a 
scale of philanthropy that one 
never before quite appre- 
ciated. 

Unfortunately this happen- 
ing did rather sprawl. It took 
the form of a reminiscing 
interview, much in the man- 
ner of Desert Island Discs. 
between the veteran singer 
Doda Conrad, who himself 
knew the Princesse and who 
sang in Nadia Boulanger's 
celebrated Monteverdi record-

ger). Those who weather the 
climate best are Odin Bruce's 
stem Laertes and Richard 
Kay’s wholesomely pompous 
Potonius; the comic interplay 
between Potonius and Hamlet 
works wefl. 

It is Hamlet however who 
has the hardest job. David 
ThreHall begins at such a point 
of high-pitched hysteria that 
his craftily mad Hamlet has to 
become a gibbering, wild-eyed 
maniac, rushing about tbe 
stage in a dress and with 
ringlets, looking tike an 18th- 
century heroine on speed. 
Occasionally he emerges wit- 
tily, and at points where he is 
able to stow down near the end 
shows a stature, understand- 


they do create a feeling of ing and depth that otherwise 
eerie, twitching oppression, remain submerged. 


Reeling from tbe Russian 
productions at the King’s 
Theatre, operatic souls have 
been comforted at Edinburgh 
by a fresh, lively and winning 
production of Dido , and Ae- 
neas within the elliptical audi- 
torium of one of the city's 
Georgian churches. The com- 
pany concerned. Opera Re- 
stor’d. belong to fiie “auth- 
entic" school as far as musical 
performance is concerned, 
and it was a pleasure to hear 
the light, pastoral tones of this 
opera so naturally delivered 
by a string quartet with harpsi- 
chord and guitar, tbe in- 
strumental music beim beefed 
up by fiie addition of dances 
from Purcell's other stage 
works of the period. Peter 
Holman was responsible for 
the musical direction. 

The stage style, though, 
made no pretensions to recov- 
ering the original performance 
conditions, which would argu- 
ably reauire a cast entirely of 
schoolgirls. Instead we had 
professional singers pretend- 
ing to be ladies and gents of 
the period adopting, as ladies' 
and gents of that period so 
often do on the modern sta^, 
a kind of slow-motion fop- 
pery. However, the costumes, 
by Robin Linklater, were of- 
ten gorgeous, and the very 
artificiality of the hisioricizing 
(with modern materials for the 
dothes and with wigs for the 


instrumentalists a full century 
later than those for the sing- 
ers) was part of the charm. 
Indeed it solved an essential 
problem. 

Dido is a work that needs 
some ' explanation for its 
quaintness, since couplets like 
“Our plot is took / The 
queen's forsook" are ex- 
tremely hard to place in any 
serious context By introduc- 
ing an element of historical 
pageant into the proceedings. 
Jack Edwards's production 
effectively withdrew the dan- 
ger of bathos. 

The cast was a fine one. 
Bronwen Mills provided a 
stately Dido, tragic but not a 
bit self-indulgent in her final , 
chaconne, which benefited 
from Mr Holman's unstuggish 
tempo. Susan Bisatt was a 
Belinda terribly eager to 
please, but generating joy 
through the generousness and 
vibrancy of her singing. The- 
resa Lister was a brightly- 
voiced Sorceress, happily 
doing without any caricature 
wickedness, and Andrew 
Knight strode manfully 
through the part of Aeneas. 


The live musical interludes 
naturally enough consisted of 
works directly associated with 
the Princesse. In Faure’s in- 
cidental music for Pelleas et 
A/cfisande, as in Ravel’s Pa- 
vane pour une Infante d&funte, 
the London Sinfoniclta under 
Esa-Pekka Salonen did not 
play with quite their usual 
crispness, but for Stravinsky's 
severely neo-classical Con- 
certo for Piano and Wind, 
which the composer himself 
gave in the Princesse’s salon, 
their wits seemed to have 
sharpened. Paul Crossley gave 
an aptly gritty account of the 
solo part, just about managing 
lo avoid imbuing the slow 
movement with too much 
expression. 

At length came the grand 
finale, a resurrection of Barry 
Smith's production of Falla's 
Master Pctcr*s Puppet Show, 
another piece dedicated to 
Polignac. And charming, not 
10 say spectacular, it was too. 
with some fine playing and 
some excellent, disembodied 
singing from Elizabeth Gale 
(the Boy), Robin Leggate 
Master Peter) and Stephen 
Roberts (Don Quixote).

Britain dons its raincoat for a Bank holiday washout 


Continued from page 1 
optimistic meteorologist re- 
ported: “There is still lots of 
heavy rain up there waiting to 

fell". 

This time the blame fell 
upon Hurricane Charley, 
which began life as a tropical 
storm, hit North Carolina and 
then swept out into the At- 
lantic to be reinvigorated by 
an involvement with cooler 
polar air. 

Yesterday. Hurricane Char- 
ley took the form of an intense 
depression moving from 
southern Ireland across the 
west country and through the 
Midlands, bringing heavy rain 
to all areas except northern 
Scotland, and hoisting gale 
warnings throughout the Irish 
Sea. English Channel and 
North Sea. 

Off the Cornish coast a 
family of five were rescued by 
a Royal Navy warship when 
their yacht began taking in 
water in stormy seas. 

HMS Jersey went to the aid 
of the French boat Fabulo 
after picking up a distress call. 

The French family, includ- 
ing three children, were trans- 
ferred to the ship; the yacht's 
skipper stayed on board to 
help the St Mary's lifeboat to 
tow her back to St Ives. 

In South Wales and the 
West Country. Bank holiday 
Monday afternoon was distin- 
guished by one and a half 
inches of rain. Many parts of 
the South-east soaked up at 
least an inch. 

In Ireland. 60 mph winds 
caused power blackouts in 
areas near the coast and pans 
of .Co Waterford and Co Cork 
were flooded after hours of 
heavy rain. 

Damp spirits at 
NottingHill 

In London, where the high- 
est temperature was an 
unseasonally low 61 F, there 
was a fifth of an inch. 

An air and sea search for 
two men missing after their 
dinghy sank off the 
Merseyside coast was aban- 
doned last night Two survi- 
vors had been swept ashore 
wearing lifejackets on Sunday 
night 

The Nolting Hill Carnival 
in west London was marred by 
the atrocious weather that 
reduced the expected three- 
quarters of a million people to 
200.000 for the two days. 


■ Many people, however, did 
brave the rain and danced to 
the rhythm of calypso music 
in the streets on the final day 
of the celebrations. 

The police monitored 
crowd levels using a network 
of computerized cameras in- 
herited from the Falklands 
war. 

About fifty officers manned 
the nerve centre of “gold 
control" which was set up in 
the gymnasium of Sion Man- 
ning School. Charles Street, in 
the heart of the carnival area. 

Their aim was to watch the 
crowd and send in snatch 
squads to pick up trouble 
makers or petty criminals. 

Their job was made easier 
by the rain which began early 
in the afternoon, although 
more petty crime was reported 
over the two days than last 
year. 

83 arrested at 
scooter rally 

Several people were injured 
and 83 arrested as violent 
clashes marred the end of the 
Isle of Wight scooter rally. 
Thousands of pounds worth of 
damage was caused after gate- 
crashers. said to be Hell's 
Angels, invaded the site near 
Newport. 

A beer marquee was looted 
and set on fire. A caravan and 
supply trailers belonging to 
the caterers were also set 
ablaze. 

It took police officers sev- 
eral hours to quell what they 
described as a serious distur- 
bance. At one stage, a fire 
engine called to the rally site 
was pelted with stones and a 
fireman was cut by flying 
glass. 

Hampshire police said that 
most of the people arrested 
were charged with theft from 
the marquee; others faced 
public order charges. 

Rain severely affected all 
the county cricket matches 
yesterday, with play at 
Bournemouth, Worcester, 
Cardiff and Hove being 
washed out without a ball 
being bowled. 

Even the World Formula 
Two Powerboating Grand 
Prix at the Royal Victoria 
Dock. London, was called off 
because the driving rain made 
conditions too hazardous. But 
the Football League and rac- 
ing programmes continued as 
normal.

S Africa 
hit by 
£2.<46bn 
outflow 

From Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 

The political and civil strife 
in Sooth Africa stimulated a 
net outflow of Hands 9-547 
billion (£2.46 billion at the 
. commercial rand rate) during 
. the 12 months since Joly 1985, 
according to the Sooth African 
Reserve Bank's annual report 
yesterday. 

This period ronghly co- 
incides with the 12 months 
since the imposition of a 
partial state of emergency on 
Joly 21 1985, lifted on March 
7 bat replaced on Jane 12 by a 
national state of emergency. 

The declaration of the first 
state of emergency, “in a 
general climate of political 
nnrest, contributed to a 
worsening of overseas percep- 
tions of South Africa's socio- 
economic stability and of the 
prospects for the economy", 
the report states. 

“The resultant renewed net 
onflow of foreign capital and 
. intensified downward pressure 
on the exchange rate began to 
assume ' critical proportions 
when, towards the end of July, 
certain foreign banking in- 
jsfkutiaa*. made known, their, 
intention of not renewing 
credit facilities." 

The stricter foreign ex- 
change controls, and the uni- 
lateral “standstill" on the 
copayment of more than half 
Sooth Africa's foreign debt, 
imposed by Pretoria last 
September, “did not succeed in 
stemming the outflow of cap- 
ital from South Africa". 

The report says the sharp 
increase in short-term capital 
outflows in the second half of 
1985 was partly due to the 
repayment of large amounts of 
loans falling outside the stand- 
still net, “that might well have 
hem rolled over if Sooth 
Africa's credit rating had not 
been reduced by the 
standstill". 

Outflows of short-term and 
long-term capital have re- 
mained high in the first half of 
1986, because of perceived 
threats of intensified economic 
sanctions against South Af- 
rica. news of continued social 
unrest and because “foreign 
loans falling due had to be 
repaid without new loans being 
made available". 

The capital outflow is seen 
here as the most serious threat 
to the prospects for long-term 
economic growth, without 
which it will be impossible for 
the government to defuse un- 
rest by creating more jobs _ for 
blacks and improving housing, 
schools and other facilities. 

Earlier this month, the gov- 
ernment approved a proposal 
for widening the use of the so- 
called financial rand in the 
hope of reviving foreign invest- 
ment in' South Africa, which 
has completely dried np. 

The financial rand is a 
special restricted exchange 
rate, introduced with other 
foreign exchange controls last 
September to discourage the 
outflow of capital. 

The financial rand is worth 
only around USl9c-20c, al- 
most half the value of the 
commercial rand, which is 
valued at about US38c. Cap- 
ital can only leave the country 
at the financial rand rate, 
which imposes a heavy loss on 
the disinvestor. 

In the past foreigners could 
purchase financial rands only 
to invest in pnblidy listed 
Sooth African stocks or cer- 
tain other approved assets. 
Under the new rales, financial 
rands can now also be bought 
for investment in property and 
private companies. 

Meanw hile, Mr Kent Dorr, 
the Deputy Minister of Fi- 
nance, described as “unadul- 
terated rubbish" a report in a 
British Sunday newspaper 
that Pretoria was “poised to 
nationalize" British com- 
panies here if the European 
Economic Commission de- 
cides to impose economic sanc- 
tions this year. 

“South Africa has always 
been a good and safe invest- 
ment for British investors and 
things will remain that way," 
he told Business Day, a 
Johannesburg newspaper. 


Interest rate hope 
fuels record rise 
for Tokyo shares 


By David Watts in Tokyo and David Smith 


Hopes of lower interest 
rates brought strong gains in 
share prices in Japan and West 
Germany yesterday. Prices on 
the Tokyo Stock Exchange 
posted their biggest ever one- 
day gain. 

The market optimism came 
in spite of official caution 
about the prospects for mone- 
tary relaxation in the two 
countries, following last 
week's half-point reduction in 
the US discount rate. 

, The Nikkei-Dow Jones in- 
dex in Tokyo surged fry 432.78 
points to 18.565.61, easily 
beating the previous largest 
I one-day rise, of 320.56 points, 
i recorded on September 29, 
1981. 

Last week, the market had 
fallen back on fears of the 
consequences for the economy 
of the strong yen, dropping by 


800 points in the space of 
three days. 

In West Germany, die 
Commerzbank index in 
Frankfurt rose by 1 1 2 points 
to 2,102-2. 

The council of West 
Germany’s central bank, the 
Bundesbank, meets on Thurs- 
day, amid intense pressure on 
it to make at least a token 
reduction in interest rates. 

According to Mr David 
Morrison, international 
economist at Goldman Sachs 
in London, the Bundesbank 
may opt to cut its Lombard 
rate from 5.5 to 5 per cent at 
Thursday’s meeting. This has 
little impact on current money 
market rates but could signal 
the intentions of the West 
German authorities and alle- 
viate the upward pressure of 
the mark. 


World economy 6 is 
close to recession’ 


The world economy is close 
to recession, according to the 
Charterhouse business fore- 
cast published today. Persis- 
tently high interest rales have 
cut investment in new capac- 
ity and diverted funds into the 
hands of non-risktakers, the 
report S3ys. 

The quarterly forecast pre- 
pared by Mr James Morrell, 
says the world oil crisis has led 
to large cuts in oil producers' 
investment and incomes but 
there has been no offsetting 
rise in spending by oil 
consumers. 

As a result the world econ- 
omy has entered a period of 
stagnation which will be exac- 
erbated by the efforts of- the 
United Slates to cut back its 
balance of payments and bud- 
get deficits. 

Other countries, the report 
says, show no signs of adopt- 
ing expansionary polities to 
counter this. * 

In addition, the report says, 
the collapse of oil and other 
commodity prices has deep- 
ened international debt 
problems. 

“The magnitude of the oil 
and debt problems must be 


taken as warnings that the 
world is perilously close to 
recession.” the report con- 
cludes. 

The forecast for Britain, like 
that of the National Institute 
for Economic and Social Re- 
search last week, is for slow 
growth — 2 per cent this year 
and 2.6 per cent in 1987 — and 
a small rise in inflation, to 4.5 
per cent next year. 

The Government is ex- 
pected to push down interest 
rates, even at the risk of 
sending the pound lower. One 
reason for this, the report says, 
is the need to sustain equity 
markets ahead of the British 
Gas flotation. 

Unemployment is expected 
to remain at the 3.2 million 
to3.3 million level, and the 
balance of payments is ex- 
pected to move into deficit 
next year. 

However, Charterhouse's 
forecast for the current ac-'- 
count, a £1 billion deficit in 
1 987 after a £2 billion surplus 
this year, is considerably less 
gjoomy than that of the Na-. 
lional Institute, which last 
week predicted a 1 987 deficit 
of nearly £6 billion. 


Tin brokers to step up 
fight for crisis millions 


By Our City Staff 


London tin brokers are 
stepping 'up their fight to 
recoup from the British Gov- 
j emmem some of the £400 
million they lost on the col- 
I lapse of the tin market last 
year. 

Tinco Realisations, the 
group of 1 1 London broker 
creditors of the International 
Tin Council has sent a de- 
tailed briefing of its case to the 
22-member states of the ITC, 
including the British Govern- 
ment. 

Tinco says the member 
states are financially respon- 
sible for the large debts left in 
the wake of the tin crisis. 
Creditor banks are still owed 
£340 million. 

The British Government 
denies any legal liability for 
the losses. A spokeman for the 
Department of Trade and 
industry said yesterday: “The 
circumstances surrounding 
the tin crisis, which were fully 
probed by the Trade and 
Industry Select Committee, 
do not favour any sort of 
agreement or settlement at the 
moment. We are waiting for 
the case concerning a writ 
issued by a tin broker, to come 
to court." 

JH Rayner, one of the 
London Metal Exchange bro- 
kers. is taking all 22 members 


of the ITC to court to recover 
its losses after the collapse of 
the tin market 

Unco's lengthy document, 
which has ban sent to Mr 
Paul Channon, the Trade and 
Industry Secretary, alleges 
that member states were fully 
aware of the haphazard fund- 
ing of the Sixth International 
Tin Agreement and its impen- 
ding collapse. It uses minutes 
from ITC meetings to back up 
its case. 

Mr Michael Arnold, a se- 
nior partner of Arthur Young, 
the firm of accountants, and 
the leader of Tinco Realis- 
ations, commented: “Tinco 
has received the strongest legal 
advice confirming the culpa- 
bility and liability of the 
member states. We have sent 
this document to all the 
relevant ministers, in aiding 
the British Government's 
representatives, and we have 
requested them to respond. 

“We look forward to these 
reactions, which we hope will 
be constructive in settling a 
dispute which we believe has 
been very damaging, not only 
to us but to the London 
commodity markets generally 
and to the City of London’s 
standing in the international 
financial community."

However, Mr Morrison ex- 
pects such pressure to force 
the German central bank into 
a significant cut in the dis- 
count rate, prior to the annual 
meetings of the International 
Monetary Fund in Washing- 
ton at the end of September. 

One possibility is that the 
United States, having thrown 
down the gauntlet by reducing 
the discount rate last week, 
would then seize the opportu- 
nity to make a further 
reduction. 

Yesterday, currency mar- 
kets were quiet. Last night in 
New York, the dollar was 
quoted at 153.8 yen and 
DM2.0425. The pound was 
weak at $1.4810, implying 
that there will be problems 
about Britain's participation 
in any round of interest rate 
cuts. 

German 
growth 
in doubt 

The outlook for West Ger- 
man industry has deteri- 
orated, according to a report 
published yesterday by the 
IFO Economic Research In- 
stitute in Munich. 

The report, which comes 
amid a healed debate in 
Germany over whether the 
economy requires the boost of 
lower interest rates, will put 
pressure on the West German 
central bank at its council 
meeting on Thursday. 

Other figures released yes- 
terday suggested that infla- 
tionary pressures in West 
Germany remain very weak 
indeed. 

The cost . of living in 
Germany’s largest federal 
state. North Rhine West- 
phalia, was down by 0l2 per 
cent in mid-August over a 
month earlier. 

' . Compared with .a year ear- 
lier, the cost of living' was 
down by 0.7 per cent. Ger- 
many has been posting cost of 
living fells, on a 1 2-month 
basis, since late spring. 

The IFO report on German 
industry concluded that slow 
growth in output was set to 
continue. Companies which 
took pari in the institute's 
regular survey of industrial 
trends last month were scep- 
tical about the prospects for 
stronger growth in the second 
half of the year. 

The German government 
has consistently claimed that 
such growth will emerge with- 
out any action by the authori- 
ties, including on interest 
rates. 

The rise in the value of the 
mark has bit export prospects, 
although there was no further 
deterioration in companies’ 
assessments of overseas sales 
prospects Iasi month. 

Wholesale trade prospects 
were worse than in June, 
however. 

Last week, Herr Martin 
Bangemann, the Economics 
Minister, claimed that the 
growth rate for the economy 
would pick up in the second 
half of the year, to give 3 per 
cent rise in gross national 
product for 1986 as a whole. 

In the first half of the year, 
growth is believed to have 
been running at 2 to 2J per 
cent, implying a stronger 
performance in the second 
half of the year. 

ft has become clear that if 
such stronger growth is to 
emerge it has to be 
doe rustically generated. De- 
spite a record trade surplus of 
DM50 billion (£16.5 billion) 
in the first half of the year, 
export volumes, hit by the 
strong mark, are only rising 
slowly.

John Elliott: transfer of voting rights puts him in a powerful position 


Elders ‘close to winning 
go-ahead for Allied bid’ 


By Alison Eadie 

The Monopolies and Merg- 
ers Commission is believed to 
have given Elders EXL the go- 
ahead to bid forAliied-Lyons, 
the British food and drink 
group. The Secretary of State 
for Trade and Industry, Mr 
Paul Channon, is expected to 
give the MMC report his 
blessing any time now. 

The Australian brewer 
I would then be free to relaunch 
its offer, almost a year after it 
, stunned the City with its first 
£1.7 billion debt-financed bid 
— then the biggest to hit the 
British takeover scene. 

The intervening year, how- 
ever, has been one of enormous 
change for Elders and Allied- 
Lyons. Allied has produced 
impressive profit figures, 
which have helped boast its 
stock market value to £23 
billion. Elders would not be in 
with a chance unless it offered 
a substantial premium to that 

Allied has also made a 
C$2.6 billion (£1-25 billion) 
bid for Canadian * Hiram 
Walker Resources' drinks di- 
vision: The acquisition would 


greatly increase Allied's size 
and make much more difficult 
for Elders to digest. However, 
it has been fraught with 
difficulty’ and is not yet In the 
bag. 

Although Allied seemed the 
agreement of Hiram's board to 
the acquisition, Hiram was 
then taken over by Olympia 
and York, a Canadian real 
estate and resources group. 
O&Y opposes the deal. 

Its first blocking attempt 
failed in July, when the On- 
tario Supreme Court dis- 
missed with costs its appeal 
against a lower court's de- 
cision approving Hiram's 
right to sell to Allied. O&Y 
returns to court a week tomor- 
row to ask leave to appeal 
against the July decision. 

Allied goes to court on 
September 29 to try' to enforce 
its original contract. 

Elders sees Allied's move as 
being designed to spoil its 
chances of rebidding. A Tew 
months ago, the Hiram pur- 
chase may have done just that, 
but Elders too has undergone a 
transformation; -- ‘ - 


Last April Elders and Bro- 
ken Hill Proprietary, 
Australia's largest company, 
exchanged what appeared to 
be defensive cross holdings in 
each other in what was seen as 
an attempt to stymie the long- 
running attempt by Bell Re- 
sources, led by Mr Robert 
Holmes a Court, to take over 
BHP. 

Mr Holmes a Court, how- 
ever, turned the tables this , 
month by transferring his 
voting power in BHP to Mr | 
John Elliott, chief executive of . 
Elders, for Blip's annual , 
meeting on September 23. 

Mr Elliott, through the | 
addition of Bell's 28 per cent 
stake to his own near 20 per | 
cent, is in a powerful position. 

The possibility has been 
raised of Elders and Bell doing 
deals together. The most 
popular theory is that Elders 
will shortly be in the driving I 
seat at BHP and will buy ont 
Bell’s stake. 

Mr Elliott would then be 1 
extremely well placed and 
have the financial muscle re- 
quired to bid for AJlied-Lyons 


New bid for BHP ‘ready’ 


Sydney (Reuter) — Mr Rob- 
ert Holmes i Court's Bell 
Resources has prepared a new 
formal takeover for the Bro- 
ken Hill Proprietary Co, but it 
is delaying having it reg- 
istered, analysts said i n Sydney. 

They believed that Mr 
Holmes a Court had filed a bid 
with the National Companies 
and Securities Commission 
(NCSC), but that the commis- 
sion had refused to register it 
in the form submitted. 

Mr Ray Schoer, the NCSC 
executive director, confirmed 
that the NCSC and its agent, 
the Victorian Corporate Af- 
fairs Commission, had re- 

EEC to tax 
Japanese 
photocopiers 

The European Commission 
is to impose 15.8 per cent duty 
on the import of Japanese 
photocopiers into the EEC in 
one of the largest anti-dump- 
ing actions taken by the 
Community so far. 

The action follows com- 
plaints from the Committee of 
European Copier Manufac- 
turers last year and an EEC 
investigation which revealed 
that Japanese photocopiers 
were being sold in Europe at 
up to 69 per cent less than 
their normal price in Japan. 

The import duty will come 
into effect from tomorrow but 
it is expected to have little 
impact initially as the Japa- 
nese manufacturers are ex- 
pected to absorb it 


sponded to documents 
submitted by Mr Holmes d 
Court But the matter is now 
back with Mr Holmes a Court 
after examination by the 
NCSC and CaC. Mr Schoer 
said. 

“You should not assume 
there is a registered part A 
(formal takeover) statement in 
any sense whatsoever,” he 
added. 

The range of possibilities 
mentioned by dealers and 
analysis includes a buyout of 
Bell by Elders IXL a takeover 
of Elders by BHP or a new bid 
by Bell that might be aimed at 
triggering a buyout. 


The anaylsts said that they 
understood that Bell. BHP 
and Elders had been involved 
in talks. 

Mr Tony Moody, an analyst 
with A C Goode and Com- 
pany, said Mr 
Holmes d Court now knew 
what it would take to have 
another bid registered 
successfully. 

That gave him the option of 
launching an immediate fifth 
bid for BHP shares in a form 
he knew would be acceptable, 
or continuing a waiting game 
with BHP. 

Mr Holmes & Court was 
unavailable for comment. 


Last-ditch 
Greycoat 
battle to 
winPhit 

By Judith Huntley 

Greycoat Group, which is 
making a hostile £1 OS million 
offer for Property Holding and 
Investment Trust, launched 
its bid only five months after 
its £37.1 million rights issue 
because of a plan to develop a 
£100 million office and retail 
scheme with the British Rail 
Properly Board at London’s 
Charing Cross station. 

Greycoat would like to re- 
tain a lion's share of the profits 
from the Charing Cross 
scheme. If it is successful in 
acquiring Phil, it would have 
an asset base on which to 
finance such a development 
without seeking institutional 
funding, which would reduce 
its profit share. 

Greycoat is making its final 
attempt to persuade Phit 
shareholders to accept its 
13S.3p per share ofTcr or the 
cash alternative of I37.5p per 
share before Thursday's dos- 
ing date. But Phit knows it can 
count on 24 per cent of its 
shares held by two large 
institutions. 

Greycoat's shares have 
fallen below the level of its 
cash offer: therefore that is the 
more attractive option for 
Phit shareholders. 

Greycoat has said it will not 
improve its offer as it believes 
its portfolio to be folly valued. 
The valuation methods of 
both companies have been the 
battleground in the increas- 
ingly acrimonious fight after 
the breakdown of amicable 
talks over the question of 
price. 

Yorkshire 

prospectus 

Yorkshire Television's 
prospectus, out today, values 
the company at £41.2 million 
and includes a profit forecast 
of at least £8.25 million for the 
12 months to September 30. 

On a 41 per cent tax charge, 
the shares are on a p/c ratio of 
8.4 limes. The indicated divi- 
dend yield is 7 per cent. The 
prospectus, published on page 
19. also contains a figure of 
£12.4 million for cash bal- 
ances at the end of July. 

Analysts believe the shares 
are attractively priced com- 
pared with those of similar 
companies. However, they say 
a fair amount of institutional 
liquidity has been taken up by 
the flotations this year of 
Thames Television and TV- 
am. 

Baring Brothers is offering 
8327.923 shares, or 25 per 
cent of the equity, for sale at 
125p each. 

Yorkshire is now the only 
1TV company not to be 
quoted or be part of a quoted 
■group.

Trafalgar tipped to win rail site 


By Judith Huntley, 
Commercial Property 
Correspondent 

The future of British Rail 
Engineering's 150-acre site in 
the heart of Brunei’s railway 
town of Swindon will be 
revealed next month when the 
successful developer for the 
redundant > works is 
announced. 

Trafalgar House Develop- 
ments, part of the property, 
shipping and construction 
company headed by Sir Nigel 
Broackes is keenly interested 
and is being tipped by some as 
most likely to succeed. t 

The company says n has 
gone to great pains to comply 

with Brel's requirements for 
the site. Mr Geoffrey Carter, 
the chairman of the commer- 
cial and residential property 
divisions of Trafalgar House, 
said: "We are very enthusias- 
tic about the site and we hope 
we are in the pole position to 
win iL" 












But there are other contend- 
ers including Swindon Bor- 
ough Council in partnership 
with the private sector and a 
consortium called the Great 
Western Works which would 
involve joint development 
with the Heron Property 
Corporation, part of Mr Ger- 
ald Ronson's empire. 

It will not be an easy ate to 
develop. The vast sheds, for- 
merly housing 2,300 engineer- 
ing workers, will have to be 
demolished before develop- 
ment can begin. There are 
listed buildings on the site 
which will have to be retained 
and there are infrastructure 
problems. 

There will be a mix of 
development on the site 


including housing, a small 
amount of retail space and 
continuing engineering uses. 
Brel also wants to see a 
working railway museum. 

Swindon's economy can be 
seen as a microcosm of the 
British economy. It has had to 
find a wider and more buoy- 
ant economic base to offset its 
dependence on the declining 
railway industry which gave it 
birth. 

The Swindon Enterprise 
Board, set up by the local 1 
authority, has been very 
successful in attracting growth 
industries to the town such as 
high technology and electron- 
ics companies. 

But the depression in 
America’s so-called Silicon 


Valley on the West Coast is 
taking its toll in Swindon. 
Many companies operating in 
the town are European head- 
quarters of US parents and are 
dependent on the state of the 
micro chip and computer 
industry in California. 

Intel, an American electron- 
ics company, had an option to 
expand on a 30-acre site in 
Swindon but backed out due 
to the state of affairs tack 
home. National Semi- 
conductor, which has its Euro- 
pean headquarters in 
Swindon, is pulling in its 
horns. 

But while the Americans 
may be reducing their growth 
rate, the Japanese could step 
in to replace them. Honda, the 
Japanese car manufacturer, is 
coming to Swindon and al- 
though details of its plans 
have not been made public, 
Japanese companies which 
supply Honda are already 
showing interest in coming to 
the town.

Shares sharply lower 


New York (Renter) — Share 
prices opened sharply lower 
yesterday led by futures-re- 
lated selling and investor dis- 
appointment that prone nates 
did not fall after last week's 
discount rate cut, analysts 
said. 

The market's mildly over- 
bought position contributed to 
the decline, they added. 


The Dow Jones industrial 
average, which fell 12 points 
shortly after the opening, was 
down a farther 1.50 by mid- 
mormng to U87430. The 
broader New York Stock Ex- 
change composite index whs 
down 0.84 to 14344. 

IBM ted the active shares, 
rising Vi to 138 Vi.

( COMMODITIES REVIEW ) 

Panic could push 
coffee to £3,000 


Ii is nol often that the 
commodity markets are 
moved by announcements af- 
ter anticipating them a week 
in advance. But that is what 
happened in the coffee market 
• last week when Senor Paulo 
Graciano, president of the 
Brazilian Coffee Institute, first 
hinted, then spelled out that 
the Brazilian coffee crop was 
not going to be all it might 

Futures prices started to 
take off on the first notion that 
1 Senor Graciano was about to 
j reveal a pretty shocking set of 
I figures. This he duly did on 
" Thursday, when the Brazilian 
- crop was estimated at only 
' 1 1 .2 million bags of 60 kg — 
well down on the 14.7 million 
bag estimate made in May and 
barely one-third of last year's 
crop. 

By that lime, November 
prices in London had risen 
more than £200 a tonne to 
£2.050, the highest level for 
three months. The market 
decided that was not enough, 
however, and sent prices up 
another £100 on Friday. New 
York traders followed much 
the same line of thinking 
during the week. 

The curious thing about this 
year's Brazilian crop is that 
the damage was done by a 
drought at the end of last year.

which was known to all and 
sundiY in the coffee world 

Indeed, the market soared 
to £3.000 a tonne in January 
before collapsing alarmingly 
by almost 50 per cent over the 
next six months as a number 
of factors combined to reduce 
the importance of the Brazil- 
ian drought European roast- 
ers showed little demand, 
preferring instead to obtain 
their supplies from the mas- 
sive stocks lying in Amster- 
dam and Le Havre, while 
what needs they did have 
could be filled adequately 
from Colombia. 

The trend was reinforced as 
the roasters went off on their 
summer holidays while the 
Brazilian cherries bloomed 
with an almost total absence 
of frost the chilling killer 
responsible for sending prices 
above £4.000 and emptying 
supermarket shelves in 1977. 

What compounded last 
week’s news from Sao Paulo 
was a realization that the 
shortfalls of good quality mild 
coffee from Brazil might not 
be so easily covered as was 
first thought Stocks in Eu- 
rope. while still large, have 
diminished in quality as roast- 
ers have taken the richest 
pickings. Colombian and Cen- 
tral American exporters are 
pretty well sold out and there 
is little to be had among the 
comparable African varieties. 

In short it now appears 
there is not an awfiil lot of 
coffee in Brazil or anywhere 
else. Add to that the commod- 
ity markets' version of 
lngedient X — speculators and 
price chan followers — and the 
result is rapidly-rising prices. 

What happens next depends 
largely on how the roasters 
behave. At present their 
needs are still fairly well 
covered in what is by far the 
slowest time of the year. Come 
the final quarter, however, 
demand will start to pick up 
again. Any sign of panic 
buying by one roaster could 
quickly spread through the 
industry' and prices could 
approach £3,000 again.

(US NOTEBOOK) 

Fed’s chief! 
puts Bonn 
and Tokyo 
on spot 

From Maxwell Newton 

New York 

Mr Paid Volcker, the Fed- 
eral Reserve chairman, threw 
down the gauntlet to the West 
Germans and Japanese with 
his detishm to cut the discount 
rate to 5% per cent last 
Wednesday — a decision that 
looked panteky at the time and 
which is expected to be fol- 
lowed by another cut within a 
few weeks. 

The Germans and Japanese 
now face the unpleasant pros- 
pect of farther substantial 


appreciation of their cur- 
rencies against the dollar. 

Mr Volcker has, in effect, 
made it plain that be is 
prepared f« a substantial 
further devaluation of the 
dollar in order to achieve two 
important policy objectives 

(1) A modification of the 
huge US trade deficit, which is 
the biggest deterrent to the 
growth of the domestic US 
economy. 

(2) Forcing the Germans 
and Japanese to modify their 
domestic fiscal and monetary 
policies towards domestic 
expansion (and higher im- 
ports) in order to protect their 
seriously threatened exports. 
(These exports are threatened 
not only in the US but also in 
third markets, as the defla- 
tionary world impact of an ever 
weaker dollar spreads). 

la order to achieve these 
objectives, Mr Volcker has 
bad to saaifice the policy of 
bolding up the federal foods 
rate at an artificially high level 

— a policy which caused a 
disturbing flattening of the 
yield curve. 

He is prepared to accept a 
significantly easier domestic 
monetary policy, as sym- 
bolized by the decision to allow 
the funds rate to drop. 

Since early June the funds 
rate has fallen 100 basis 
points — the 90-day Treasury- 
bill has fallen 93 basis points 

— the 10 -year note has fallen 
52 basis points and the 30- 
year bond has fallen 50 bams 
points in yield. 

This decision to modify 
materially the artificial 
character of the funds rate 
level has had the effect of 
helping to restore health to the 
US financial system and to 
provide the basis for a further 
good rally in bonds. 

Mr Volcker is also prepared 
for a much larger devaluation 
of die dollar than he woold 
have been prepared to contem- 
plate in May or June (the 
second of the four recent 
discount rate cats came in late 
April). By last Thursday, the 
September yen had reached a 
record of 153 and the Septem- 
ber mark had reached a record 
of 2.04. 


Year 


( ANALYSIS ) 

of the property takeover 



Paul Volcker: prepared for a 
farther reduction 

He has plenty of scope for 
an easier monetary policy. The 
0.6 per cent revised real GNP 
growth rate of the second 
quarter shocked the 
‘consensus* thinkers and 
gave the Administration a 
nasty jolt 

Other economic information 
released during the week 
underlined the Hapressfoi of 
weakness and deflation. July 
boasing starts fell 1J8 per cent; 
real wages per honr in July fell 
025 per cent after a revised 0.5 
per cent decline in real earn- 
ings in June; the consumer 
price index for July showed no 
rlwny (malting the total drop 
in coosnmer prices 0.1 per cent 
so far this year); personal 
consumption and spending 
growth in Jaly was only about 
half of the percentage growth 
rate of the last year. 

It is very difficult for Mr 
Volcker or anyone else to 
argue that inflation is a threat 
Hence, it is easier for him to 
justify a domestic monetary 
policy which I imagine will 
soon have the Germans and 
Japanese crying bloody 
murder. 


This may be the year of the 
bear market for stocks, but 
for the quoted property com- 
panies it is the year of the 
takeover and merger. 

It all began in 1985 when 
Liberty Life, the South Af- 
rican insurance company, 
gained 91 per cent of Capital 
3T Counties, one of the fore- 
most British retail developers 
and a company in which it 
already had a stake. 

That contested £173 mil- 
lion fad was triggered by the 
technicalities of Britain’s 
takeover code, which _ re- 
quired the South African 
company to make a bid once 
its shareholding passed the 
29.9 per cent mark. 

Liberty Life may well be 
looking to dilute its control- 
ling stake, making this an 
exception to the present 
round of takeovers and merg- 
ers in the sector. 

The real flurry of activity 
began early in 1986 when the 
Dutch investment group, 
Robeco — through Rodamco, 
its property arm — made a 
dawn raid on Haslemere 
Estates, the well-liked and 
well-established property 
concern, giving it 24 per cent 
of the company. 

So well known was 
Haslemere for its refurbish- 
ment of old buildings into 
offices that “doing a 
Haslemere” passed into the 
property world’s vocabulary. 

Unfortunately for 
Haslemere, its reputation was 
not enough to save it from the 
Dutch bidder. Rodamco in- 
creased its offer from 60Gp a 
share to 640p, valuing 
Haslemere at £252 million 
after the company defen- 
sively revalued its assets to 
show a net asset value of “at 
least" 728p per share. 

Institutional shareholders 
lost no time in selling to 
Rodamco, doing so while the 
going was good. 

Haslemere’s share price 



and net asset value had 
underperformed other 
significant property com- 
panies before the fad. And 
earnings per share for the 
year to March 31 1985 were 5 
per cent lower than those of 
1981. 

More was to come. Stock 
Conversion, the established 
property company, became 
vulnerable to a takeover once 
its co-founder, Mr Robert 
Clark, died. His family 
shareholding went to the new 
and aggressive property com- 
pany Stockley. which was a 
thorn in Stoat Conversion's 
side for some time. 

Stockley and Stock 
Conversion could not agree 
on a solution to the problem 
largely because of price. In 
the event. Stock Conversion 
became the subject of a 
hostile £377 million bid from 


Sir Jeffrey Sterling; Stockley succumbed to his coaxing 


the Peninsular and Oriental 
Steam Navigation Co. 

Stock Conversion’s 
management, reluctant to en- 
ter a protracted and bitter 
battle, advised shareholders 
to take the P & O offer after 
Stockley swiftly succumbed 
to Sir Jeffrey Sterling’s 
blandishme nts. 

P & O made a small 
improvement to its cash offer 
for Stock Conversion to 720p 
per share, enough to tempt 
shareholders away. Slock 
Conversion's net asset value 
was later shown to be 770p a 
share. 

‘ P & O’s underwriters, how- 
ever, were left with many 
shares as the company's share 
price fell below its cash offer. 

The attractions for P & O 
were obvious. It could use 
highly-rated paper to launch 
its bid for a company with a 


juicy collection of assets 

Institutional investors 
were increasingly looking at 
their property investments in 
the same light as any other 
equities. The argument that 
property was a long-term 
investment was holding less 
weight. 

with that sentiment creep- 
ing into the market and 
property investment com- 
panies trading at a discount 
to net asset value, the way 
was dear for them to become 
the prey of new trading 
companies with highly-rated 
paper. 

The agreed £86 million 
merger between David, in the 
shape of Clayform Prop- 
erties, which came to the 
Unlisted Securities Market in 
1985 with net assets of £5.19 
million, and Goliath, in the 
guise of Samuel Properties, 


with net assets of £94.1 
million, reinforced the trend. 

Institutional investors are 
backing the trading com- 
panies, particularly: those in 
specialist areas of the market, 
above the older companies 
which are saddled' with an 
ageing portfolio. 

Mounddgh is the latest of 
the property companies trad- 
ing at a premium to assets to 
agree a takeover, in this case 
with the former chairman of; 
United Real Property Trust, 
Mr Maurice WohL He owns 
51 per cent of the company, 
and eventually agreed to 
Mountlrigh’s £127 million 
offer, valuing United's shares 
at 975pi 

United's last quoted net 
asset value was 744p, but 
Moundeigh estimates that it 
is now l,250p per share, 
making its offer stand at a 28 
per cent discount. - 

The only real defence that 
investment companies have, 
given that the price is right is 
to boost net asset value by 
revaluing the portfolio. 

The acrimonious . fight 
wbch has developed between 
Greycom Group and Prop- 
erty Holding & Investment 
Trust, for whit* it is making 
a £108 million bid, hinges on 
the value of the respective 
portfolios. Both rides accuse 
the other of over-generous 
valuations. 

But, in reality, it is a classic 
battle between an investment 
company with assets and a 
glamour stock with large 
amounts of highly- ratal 


, ..at has a tough battle 

mt its hands over the price it 
is offering the Phit sharehold- 
ers, although some may be 
tempted by the cash offer of 
137p per share.

Tombs 
defends 
AE bid 

By Amanda Gee Smyth 

‘ Sir Francis Tombs, chair- 
man of Turner & Newall. has 
hit back at claims that his 
company's £261 million bid 
for AE the engineering group, 
lacks industrial logic. 

The offer, due to close on 
Friday, is likely to be extended 
until September 12. T&N on 
Friday bought another I mil- 
lion AE shares to bring its 
stake to 19.5 per cenL 

AFs second defence docu- 
ment. in what has become a 
fiercely-contested bid battle, 
attacked the industrial logic of 
the bid and expressed doubts 
about T&N’s South African 
interests. 

Sir Francis Tombs, in an 
interview with The Times. 
said that the fad was a 
complementary and not a 
competitive one. 

The A E range of piston and 
crankshaft products were not 
in direct competition with any 
T&N products, and a merger 
would provide an extended 
and streamlined range. 

Sir Francis claimed that the 
companies did not overlap 
geographically. Although they 
had plants in the same coun- 
tries they did not manufacture 
the same products. 

There was, he said, no 
intention of cutting AFs re- 
search and development, but 
high expenditure was not in 
itself a virtue. 

In reply to AFs claim that 
T&N was still financially 
over-dependent on Southern 
Africa and in particular South 
Africa, he said that the group 
had reduced its interest in its 
South African holding com- 
pany from 78 per cent to 51. 

AFs fears that T&N is not 
being clear on liabilities from 
claims relating to asbestos- 
related diseases were unjusti- 
fied. Sir Francis said. 

T&N has reached an agree- 
ment with American produc- 
ers and insurers to 
handle all forward claims, 
cutting the costs of litigation. 

T&N has also recently re- 
ceived a number of substantial 
payments from insurers who 
had refused to pay damages 
until sued by the company. 

T&N insists that the two 
companies will form a strong 
international Force in the 
motor component industry. 


C GILT-EDGED ) 


Domestic and global trends 
justify investor optimism 


Gilts have been trading side- 
ways, significantly underper- 
forming both US and West 
German bonds over the last 
month. This disappointing 
formance has stemmed 
un official caution on Brit- 
ish interest rates, rapid domes- 


tic money supply growth and ; revenues. 


indications are that the budget 
deficit in this financial year is 
likely to remain under reason- 
able restraint This prospect is 
dependent on continued oil 
price firmness, tightly con- 
trolled expenditure and fur- 
ther buoyancy ; in • non-oil 


increased political and cur- 
rency uncertainty in Britain. 

As the rate of inflation has 
fallen in Britain, real gilt yields 
have risen sharply to about 7 
per cent, the highest level 
among leading nations. The 
yield margin over US bonds 
remains stubbornly high, at 
2J> per cent Indeed, m terms 
of absolute value, the gilt- 
edged market hardly reflects 
the drop in the British rate of 
inflation of recent years or a 
reasonably encouraging infla- 
tion outlook. 

In such circumstances, a 
question which both inter- 
national and British investors 
may well ask is: “How best to 
evaluate the gilt market?" In 
trying to answer this question, 
it is helpful lb focus first on 
the domestic scene. A key 
feature here is that nominal 
GDP growth this year is likely 
co be at least 2 percent below 
the level anticipated by the 
Treasury at the time of the 
Budget. Expressed differently, 
both inflation in Britain and 
“real" economic growth are 
likely to continue to under- 
shoot government objectives, 
giving room for - policy 
stimulus. 

Scope for increased British 
largesse is also suggested by 
last week’s PSBR figures. The 


Interestingly, the recent 
domestic worries in the gilt; 
market are no longer at the 
forefront of investors' 
thoughts. Above-target broad 
UK money supply growth is 
not just a British, but a world, 
phenomenon and reflects tbe 
continued prevalence of high 
real interest rates. 

The attractive risk-free re- 
turn on cash has increased the 
incentive to remain liquid. 
Rapid growth in British unit 
labour costs is more of a 
problem, but is not a cause for 
extreme concern in a climate 
of low imported inflation. 

Also, the British political 
scene is less of a dampener on 
market sentiment True, the 
possibility of a Labour gov- 
ernment could lead to specu- 
lative selling of the pound in 
the run-ap to the general 
election. However, this could 
be as late as mzd-1988, by 
which time the domestic eco- 
nomic climate and the for- 
tunes of tbe Tories could be 
much improved. 

It has to be emphasized, 
however, that in the short 
term, the main influences on 
gilt prices are likely to arise 
overseas. Indeed, there is a 
danger of taking too narrow 
and insular a view of eco- 
nomic and monetary pros- 


pects in a financial environ- 
ment in which domestic 
worries are likely to be over- 
shadowed by international 
events. In particular, attention 
needs to be paid to three key 
global trends, namely: , 

• Oil prices: Hie prospects 
for the recent Opcc agreement 
bolding art. encouraging and 
this should help sentiment in 
the gilt market Oil prices in 
the next year are likely to 
remain at S 10-516 a barrel 
initially trading in the upper 
end of this range. A firmer oil 
price will help the British 
balance of payments on cur- 
rent account and will reduce 
the Government's funding 
requirement 

• World Interest Rates: In the 
United States, subdued 
growth (only 0.6 per cent a 
year in the second quarter), 
low inflation and domestic 
and third world financial 
problems will continue to 
encourage a relatively lax 
monetary policy. A further cut 
in the US discount rate to 5 
percent cannot be ruled out in 
the short term. Nominal 
short-term^ interest rates in 
other leading countries could 
be as much as 1 to 2 per cent 
lower by early next year, even 
though real interest rates will 
remain high. Britain is likely 
to play an important part in 
the world move to lower 
interest rates. 

• Currency Trends: The re- 
cent firming in oil prices has 
reduced downward pressure 


on sterling. Britain's balance 
of payments may be heading 
towaids a current account 
deficit next year, but this is 
likely to result more in weak- 
ness against the mark bloc 
currencies and the yen than 
against the- dollar. This 
- prospective British currency 
mix, encompassing- a signifi- 
cant depreciation against our 
biggest competitors without 
fuelling an inflationary run on 
the pound, is not a bearish 
factor for gifts: Sentiment 
towards sterling is still widely 
influenced by the pound's 
performance against the dollar 

- which is expected to be good 

— rather than by its trend 
against the Euro-currencies 
and the yen. 

Whal then, is the overall 
outlook for gilts? Recent eco- 
nomic data remain supportive 
for bond markets generally. In 
Britain, provided tbere is a 
realistic response to the lower 
inflation climate over the next 
round of wage settlements 
(which I expect), the case for 
policy relaxation and lower 
interest rates wilt be strong. 

With domestic funding and 
liquidity pressures less 
demanding than earlier. this 
year, thegm market is likely to 
establish a yield base hearer 
8.5 per cent by early next year 
compared with 9.75 per cent 
today. For sterling ana doliar- 
based investors this move- 
ment will . represent a 
'substantial total return.

USM REVIEW 


Partner with deep pockets 
comes to Air Call’s aid 


One of the 1 1 founder stocks 
I on the l ■SM. Air Call, an- 
[ nounced a restructuring this 
. week that may prove to be a 
; taste of things to come for 

• small U$M companies which 

• are finding trading conditions 

■ too difficult to flourish. 

■ Air Call is a radio commu- 
nications group. It operates 

< paging systems and is also a 
; distributor of cellular tele- 

• phones for Ratal Vodafone. 
‘ Although the tefocoixununica- 

■ dons market is in a phase of 
very rapid growth, it is diffi- 
cult for small companies to 
compete effectively against 
the muscle of British Tele- 
communications and 

. Mercury. 

In particular, BTs policy m 
: the paging market has caused 
■difficulties for Air ffrti. The 

■ company made pretax profits 
last year of £139,000 on sales 
of £40.1 million, compared 
with a peak of £1-3 million 
profits in 2983. In order to 
maintain market share in the 
next few years, the company 
will have to invest heavily — 
to the detriment of profits and 
dividends. 

The company plans ' a 
restructuring which involves a 
share swap with the -private 
company which owns 58 per 
cent of Air Call, with a cash 
alternative of 225p. After 
this,BelI South, the operating 
company of Bell, will take a 40 
per cent stake in the commu- 
nications business and ft must

The first news from Mrs 


Air Call has therefore found Fields since its flotation came 
a paruwr with a deep pocket to this week. The US biscuits 
help the company over its company was launched on the 
difficult years. This will limit USM in May with the greatest 
the downside risk and over the marketing hype ever seen on 
medium terra growth pros* the secondary market and 
pects look attractive. The subsequently distinguished it- 
shares would be a buy but for self as one of the greatest flops 
one drawback: there are no as 85 per cent ofthe shares was 
plans to list Air Oil and left wfth the underwriters. The 
Holdings, the private com- problem was felt to be a 
pany buying out Air Call's simple issue of over-pricing 
shareholders. Nonetheless, Mrs Fields, whose president 
shareholders should consider and chief executive is Mrs 
seriously taking the paper Debbi Fields, operates from 


321 scores selling freshly 
baked biscuits. Expansion has 
been very rapid as the group 
started trading only in 1977 
and continues at a breath- 
taking rate. A further 80 stores 
are scheduled 1 to open m the 
second half, including four in 
London. 

The figures announced this 
week showed the group made 
$6.4 million for the six 
months to June, an impressive 
88 per cent increase, and the 
group is confident it can meet 
its forecast of $18.5 million. 

Bargain hunters in the stock 
have bun' relatively dis- 
appointed. Despite the under- 
writing stick the shares have 
only dropped- at the bottom to 
a 2 Op discount from the 140p 
placing price and since these 
figures the shares have rallied 
to 13 Op. That' leaves the 
prospective p/e ratio for this 
year looking expensive at 17 
limes. At some point, how- 
ever, the market will look to 
the prospects for next year and 
if the impressive rate of 
growth is maintained, the 
shares mil perform. The tech- 
nical position in the stock will I 
remain difficult until the I40p 
issue price is cleared and it

Prospects 
for Norway 
oil ‘never 
worse’ 

From Tony Samstag, Oslo 

The Norwegian Govern- 
ment's intention to modify tax 
proposals, announced last 
week, and feared by oil com- 
panies as malting their opera- 
tions unprofitable, emphas- 
izes Norway's concern over 
the oil market. ; 

Concessionary rales on new 
developments would mean a 
tax of about 60 per cent 
against 85 per cent for those 
already in production, reflect- 
ing a virtual cessation of 
exploration and development 
activity. 

The latest figures released 
by the Norwegian off-shore ofl 
industry make gloomy read- 
ing. Since the beginning of this 
year, 4,000 jobs in the North 
Sea have been lost as 40 oat of 
more than 90 rigs have been 
taken out of operation. ' 

Managers and trade union 
officials, who seem to have 
found little encouragement in 
the decision by the Organiza- 
tion of Petroleum Exporting 
Countries to co-operate in 
curbing production from the 
beginning of next month, are 
describing the situation as 
catastrophic.

Industrial nations that are economi- 
cally unsuccessful or out of balance 
tend to outnumber those that get it 

right The strong are the odd men out 
So it is natural to blame them for 
international economic problems. 
The rest of us are normal and doing 
our best Germany and Japan must 
change. Most immediately, it is 
argued, the world economy is slowing 
down because the countries which 
already enjoy the lowest interest rates 
have not cut them even further. 

For years now, the ire of North 
America and Europe has focused on 
Japan. This has had the great advan- 
tage that the citizens of Europe and 
the United States have tittle contact 
with their opposite numbers in Japan. 
Propositions that would plainly be 
preposterous if directed at home can 
be justified by the Japanese being 
“different” 

Thus, their, success in selling here 
and our failure to sell there must be 
due to unfair practices or cultural 
peculiarity. What would be well- 
planned marketing strategies in our 
hands become targeted trade 
offensives in theiris. High productiv- 
ity and cooperation of labour and 
management become obsession with 
work and slavish devotion to com- 
pany goals. The Japanese save too 
much and should whoop it up on 
credit Their low interest rates stem 
from restrictions on financial mar- 
kets. Low unemployment is at our 
expense. 

The Americans, in particular, now 
. sense that pressure on Japan cannot 
be raised much further. The yen has 
boomed, the post-election Japanese 
government plans to spend more, and 
reports on Japan's economic future 
have contained suitable confessions of 
error. 

The focus of pressure for economic 
policy changes is, therefore, shifting to 
Germany. Foreign exchange markets 
sensed it last week, pushing the mark 
to new highs against sterling and the 
dollar as well as other currencies in the 
European Monetary System. 

No one can guy the Germans as a 
nation of economic fanatics. They are 
the solid citizens of the world econ- 
omy. For a generation, they have 
dwelt in the virtuous circle of low 
inflation, strong currency and rising 
living standards by cautiously follow- 
ing the monetary and fiscal notebooks. 
Propaganda must here give way to 
argument 

German recovery over the past 
three years has certainly been sluggish, 
with growth stagge ri ng to 3 per cent in 
1984, then faltering to a drop in 
output in the first quarter of this year. 
Such growth as there has been 
stemmed from exports. And export- 
led growth is becoming much more 
difficult 

The US market which took an 
average 20 per cent annual increase in 
mark-denominated imports during 
1980-85, is no longer buoyant More- 
over, the 40 per cent rise in the mark 
against the dollar has made German 
exports less competitive, in the 
United States (which accounts for 


around 10 per cent) and third mar- 
kets. The mark has also climbed 
steeply against sterling. Meanwhile, 
oil producers are slashing imports and 
West Germany's Eastern European 
markets have poor prospects. 

Germany must look to internally- 
generated growth. The third most 
powerful free world economy, a prime 
beneficiary of cheaper oil, should also 
do its bit for the world while the 
United States is counting the cost of 
its demand-induced leap forward. 

There is, in addition, a European 
perspective. With its strong trade 
surplus and rich market, it is argued, 
Germany can help stimulate the 
whole Western European market in a 
way that Britain or France cannot 
individually attempt. 

As it is, however, Germany is acting 
as a brake on the rest of the EEC 
through its pivotal role in the Euro- 
pean Monetary System and the 
mark/sterling exchange rate. Yet 
Bonn is stalling on interest rates and is 
running a low budget deficit destined, 
to fall furthernext year. 

The trouble with this argument lies 
in the prescription rather than the 
analysis. The German economy has 
become strong, and pivotal in Europe, 
precisely because it has aimed at 
monetary and fiscal stability to allow 
the economy to grow at the natural 
rate of its productive potential. Under 
Bundesbank control, interest rates 
have been used to provide stable 
money growth, not to stimulate or 
rein back output in the British 
tradition. German interest rates are 
not only presently lower, but have 
been much more stable over a long 
period (even in real terms) than in the 
US or Britain. 

Opinion in Germany is divided, 
with the camp favouring lower in- 
terest rates pointing to continued 
sluggishness for the economy, as in . 
the latest report from the IFO 
Institute in Munich, published yes- 
terday. But the authorities still worry 
that the money supply, growing at an 
annual rate of 7 per cent in the three 
months to July, is expanding too fast 
Meanwhile, Herr Martin Bangemann, 
the Economics Minister, pointing to 
the sharp recovery in the second 
quarter, claims that the economy is on 
course for 3 per cent growth this year, 
thanks to investment and the boost to 
consumption from the twin stimulus 
to living standards from oil prices and 
the exchange rate. 

German growth prospects remain 
unimpressive and unemployment 
high. The main cause, however, is that 
the underlying growth In productive 
potential has slowed to about 2.5 per 
cent The economy has become 
sclerotic. The tax and welfare system 
has become oppressive. Deregulation 
and privatization, strongly supported 
by Herr Bangemann, have made little 
progress. Industrial subsidies are rife. 

Here perhaps, Britain and the 
United States might have something 
to teach the Germans. We had better 
leave macroeconomic management in 
their capable hands.

Saboteurs threaten havoc - jri 


The press repons Iasi week that a major 
bank was the subject of computer fraud 
focussed attention once more on com- 
puter hackers. The bank — Barclays — 
denied that the loss, reported to have 
been nearly half a million pounds, was 
the result of any form of computer 
hacking. 

But the denial did little to allay the 
fears of those who believe that the 
computer installations of financial in- 
stitutions around the world are becom- 
ing increasingly vulnerable to attack 
from computer professionals and ama- 
teurs alike. 

The spread of computers at home and 
in the office has aggravated the situation, 
as has the sfoppiness of some computer 
management. Many computer experts 
who have studied security claim that the 
banks and financial institutions could be 
losing as much as £50m a year from 
computer-related fraud. 

No one wiU confirm the figures or 
quantify the losses, but fears of publicity 
have prevented many cases getting to 
court - particularly the ones that involve 
employees — despite the encouragement 
given to the companies by the police. 

The reports of last week came in the 
wake of a disclosure — only a few days 
before — that few British companies 
appreciate what damage computer sabo- 
teurs can do. The companies had too 
little appreciation that much of their 
business depended on the efficient 
operation of their computer systems. 


Substantial damage to such systems 
could cripple a business in a matter of 
days. . , . 

Few companies were properly insured 
for the damag e which might result from 
such illegal acts. David Davies, a 
director of risk management at insurance 
brokets Hogg Robinson, who assesses 
the security risks of computer systems, 
maintains that many companies might 
never recover from an attack on their 
computer systems. 

That view was endorsed by computer 
security expert Dr Ken Wong from 
consultants BIS Applied Systems. About 
15 incidents of computer sabotage have 


THE WEEK 


By Bill Johnstone 

surfaced recently and about a third have 
stopped the companies concerned trad- 
ing. The saboteur is usually an employee 
who has programmed the system to 
develop a fhult or activate a command 
some time after his departure from the 
company. 

The onsupervised computer pro- 
grammer or systems analyst is therefore 
in an easy position to alter computer 
commands at wilL “He can be making an 
illegal change as well as an authorised 
one,” says Dr Wong. 

These changes, known as logic time 


bombs, are becoming widespread but 
companies arc still reluctant to pros- 
ecute. The bombs placed by disgruntled 
employees are now believed to be 
inflicting millions of pounds worth of 
irreparable damage on companies ever 
year. T 

These computer saboteurs construct “ 
and place their bombs just before - 
departure. The less destructive designs 
abort a computer system and require the “ 
departed employee to be recalled to “ 
repair the damage for a fee. Others are“~ 
more damaging in naiure. Valuable sales - 
invoices, dient lists, files, outstanding 1 , 
bills and other vital information for 
running a business have been destroyed 
by these commands. 

Britain is only experiencing what has 
been rife in the United States for some * 
time. There, the logic time bombs are 
more sophisticated and take the form of 
a virus — illicit commands which in turn 
generate a train of others in an un- 
controllable chain. 

These appear easier to implement in , 
computer systems on a public tele- - 
communications network. Usually the , 
hacker or saboteur would enter the - 
network at one node but be able to ... 
initiate commands which would do 
damage at another. 

Legislation which forces companies to *• 
publicly disclose all the details of ' 
computer fraud appears to be the only • 
sensible remedy. 


The City offers a golden bait 


Computer programmers used 
to have two options if they 
wanted to earn a king’s ran- 
som rapidly — take a chance 
on a freelance career or do a 
tour of duty in the Middle 
East. The approaching de- 
regulation of the City of 
London has created a third, 
more palatable possibility. 

With the October deadline 
getting closer, finance bouses 
in the City are said to be 
finding their information sys- 
tems woefully incomplete. 
Computing expertise is at a 
premium and the bait used to 
attract it is becoming increas- 
inglyiiricy. 

Inflated salaries are only tbe 
beginning. There are cheap 
mortgages, free pension 
schemes, pre fere n tial loans, 
life and health insurance, 
profit-sharing, share options 
and bonuses. There are even 
reports of large cash payments 
that would put data-process- 
ing staff into the same cate- 
gory as head-hunted market- 
makers. 

Recruitment specialists dif- 
fer on how closely this version 
of events corresponds to re- 
ality. According to some, tbe 
Dick Whittington syndrome is 
at work — the streets of 
London will always seem to be 
paved with gold from a certain 
angle. But even those who 
would expect to be freewheel- 
ing at this time of year say that 
the Gty is keeping them busy. 

The finance sector has al- 
ways been a generous em- 
ployer of computer staff in the 
benefits it can offer. Sub- 
sidized mortgages were com- 
mon long before tbe ugly 
phrase “golden hello” was 
invented, used in the days 
when the Big Bang was an 
alternative to the Book of 
Genesis. 

But the scope of the perks 
on offer has certainly grown 
and the qualifying period has 
shrunk in some cases. “People 


S»phen JoWWCo 



are finding that mortgage 
benefits are available from 
day one rather than after six 
months or a year of service,” 
said David dark of the 
specialist recruitment con- 
sultancy, Sector Personnel 
A weB-known international 
bank helpfully worked out the 
cash value of banking benefits 
for employees in a recent 


c JOB SCENE) 


By David Guest 

advertisement aimed at data 
processing staff To somebody 
on a salary of £13,000 a year, 
and with a £50,000 mortgage, 
its package would be worth 
£4,700 a year. 

A spokesman for one of the 
largest programming body 
shops said: “There are some 
pretty fancy prices being paid, 
but nowhere near what the 
market makers are getting.” 
Jayne Boynton, of Hal tech, 
said that a qualified analyst- 
programmer might expect a 
salary of £20,000 as opposed 
to £12,000 anywhere else. 


Advertising that specifically 
mentions the Big Bang doesn't 
bear out this view. Taking into 
account the problem of job 
definitions, a study of the 
recruitment pages of the trade 
press reveals a large spread, 
from analyst-programmer 
posts at £1 1,000 plus benefits 
to senior systems analysts at 
£30,000 plus benefits plus 
bonuses. 

Bounty hunters are also 
warned by the recruitment 
specialists that the least tar- 
nished. “golden hellos” are 
going to people with experi- 
ence of the finance sector and 
its procedures. One individ- 
ual with just 16 months* 
experience of a stockbrokers 
system, has moved to a bank 
for £23,000 a year. 

The golden hello in any 
meaningful form is rare at the 
levels of programmers and 
analysts unless very specific 
applications skills are in- 
volved. At the higher levels 
managerial staff tend to be 
head-hunted rather than re- 
cruited through advertising. 

At all levels, but particularly 


in software development, the J 
acute shortage of people with . 
the right skiDs is prompting ' 
some finance houses to a ban- ‘ 
don the golden hello for a 
much less glamorous expedi- 
ent — retraining. 

On one hand, computer 
staff with a good technical 
background can be trained in 
the ways of the business; on 
the other,, particular types of 
modern computer system are 
less demanding of program- 
ming talent Consultants see 
these factors leading salaries 
to a plateau. 

For the moment, the * 
possibility ofbig money is still 
perceived as real by computer 
staff Jane Boynton com- 
mented: “It's an ideal oppor- 
tunity for people to get into 
the finance sector.” 

This drift towards the City 
prompted one local authority *" 
in London to fight fire with 
fire by offering its own golden 
hello — worth £3,000 to pro- 
grammers. The offer is 
thought to be closed now, but 
the City’s, such as it is, 
remains open until October 27 « 
and probably beyond.

H Can IB M wear 
a Euro cloak? 

From Matthew May id Oberiech, Austria 


What factors go to make up a 
European company has been 
an especially thorny subject 
for IBM over the last year as 
the company's “Europcan- 
' — " or lack of it has become 


As the EEC has pushed 
forward pan-European re- 
search programmes designed 
to boost European compet- 
itiveness against the strength 
of American and Japanese 
multinationals in high tech- 
nology. so too ironically it has 
had to involve the biggest 
foreign multinational of than 
alt IBM. 

little suprise then that 
Kaspar Cassani, president of 
IBM Europe, turned up daring 
a series of seminars held in 
this winter resort town last 
week by the company to stress 
tow important he believes the 
formation of “information, 
technology p a rtner sh ips" are 
to advancing European 
competitivenessin world mar- 
kets. 

The seminars, otherwise 
known as the IBM Europe 
Institute, ran for eight weeks 
every summer and are de- 
signed to attract up to 50 
European researchers and 
academics a .week to listen to 
v-. speakers on the latest 
developments in high technol- 
■} ogy across the continent 
j- • They are one of a series of 
measures taken by IBM to 
convince the world that IBM 
Europe, which accounts for 
t*, nearly a third of the 
company’s worldwide busi- 
ness, should be given at least 
•£3^33 honorary European status 
when it conies to planning for 
y ifj§ the 1990s. 

T “Our own labs and plants in 

Europe are every bit as ad- 
fvji vanced as their American and 
j ! | Japanese . counterparts,” Mr 

S ^ & Cassam sakk sidestepping the 
- 1 faff .that, this . is hardly 


industrialists that such pro- 
grammes should be only for 
European companies, rather 
than for foreign subsidiaries. 

But with (me of the mam 
.targets of European co-opera- 
tion being the formation of a 
set of common standards 
the early 1990s to ena««. 
different brands of computer 
equipment, telephone systems 
and networks to tink with each 
other easily, necessity de- 
mands that IBM cannot be be 
ignored. 

As Mr Cassani put it, 
“Many vested interests are at 
stake and will be defended 


and many sacred 
cows will have to be 
sacrificed."

IBM’s European chief* 
Kaspar V. Cassam 
Cassani in response tol 
questioning over the effect off 
the launch of cheap clones off 
the PC such as Amstrad*s 
£460 version due to be an- 
nounced next Tuesday. Earlier 
this month IBM cut prices on 
some versions of its basic PCs 
by nearly 20 per cent, although 
a complete system still costs 
more than £1,000. 

But in other parts of the 
market Mr Cassani predicts an 
end to the general reduction in 
the cost ofhigh technology. 

He said: “Computer prices 
in Europe have been coming 
down in the last nine to 12 
months very rapidly, as in- 
ti den tally have IBM's, but we 
don't expect this to continue. 
On a worldwide scale prices 
could now start to rise."

Regina v Hammersmith and 
Fu lham London Boroogh 
Council, Ex parte Beddowes 
Before Lord Justice Fox. Lord 
Justiccr Kerr and Sir Denys 
Buckley 

[Judgment given July 3!] 

A local authority did not 
impose an unlawful fetter on its 
powers by entering into cov- 
enants restricting its future use 
of hs housing estate. 

The Court of Appeal, by a 
majority (Lord Justice Kerr 
dissenting) dismissed, in a re- 
served judgment, an appeal by 
Doreen Beddowes, a resident of 
Fulham Court. Fulham, from a 
decision of Mr Justice 
Schiernann in an application for 


the appeal was really based upon 
the contention that the cov- 
enants fettered the councirs 
discretion to deal with the 
retained land and were had 
accordingly. 

The first question in relation 
to that contention was whether 
the council was entitled to 
impose on its retained land 
covenants which were restric- 
tive of iis user of that land. 

Fulham Court was “land ac- 
quired or appropriated by the 
council for the purposes or Pan 
V of the Housing Act 1957. It 
was now held by the council tor 
the purposes of Pan II of the 
Housing Act 1985. 

Section 104 of the 1957 Act 


judicial review of a decision of (now incorporated in section 32 
the housing policy committee of of the 1985 Act) authorized a

Hammersmith and Fulham 
London Borough Council 
concerning a sale of pan of 
Fulham Conn to Barrens, the 
developers. 

Leave was given to appeal to 
the House of Lords.

Caroline Hunter for the ap- 
plicant; Mr Raymond KidwcU, 
QC. and Mr Joseph Harper for 
Barrens; Miss Elisabeth Laing

LORD JUSTICE FOX raid 
that the application was for(i) 
an order of certiorari to quash a 
decision of the committee which 
authorized the borough valuer 
to conclude the sale of Block A. 
Fulham Court, on terms which 
included covenants restricting 
the future use of Blocks B-J. 

! Fulham Court, and (2) an 
injunction restraining the coun- 
cil from entering into a contract 
for the sale of Block A on those 
terms. 

Fulham Court was built in 
1933 and was owned by the 
council. It consisted of 372 flats 
in Blocks A-J together with an 
open space. All the blocks were 
in a very bod state of repair and 
were much in need of renova- 
tion and improvement. 

Prior to the local government 
elections on May S, 1986 the 


local authority to dispose of 
"land" held for housing. 

Under Schedule 1 to the 
Interpretation Act 1978 “land" 
included **any estate interest 
easement servitude or right in or 
over land". 

It seemed, therefore, that a 
local authority could, with the 
consent of the minister, create 
restrictive covenants over its 
Pan v and Pan 11 land (see 
section 32(2) of the 1985 Act) 

Power to create restrictive 
covenants did not. however, 
resolve the question whether the 
covenants constituted an unlaw- 
ful fetter. 

It was clear that a local 
authority could not in general 
make declarations of policy 
binding on a future council. A 
council could not extinguish 
statutory powers in that way. 
But it might be able to do so by 
the valid exercise of other 
statutory powers. 

If a statutory power was 
lawfully exercised so as to create 
legal rights and obligations be- 
tween the council and third 
parties, the result would be that 
the council tor the time being 
was bound even though that 
hindered or prevented the ex- 
ercise of other statutory powers. 

What their Lordships were 
concerned with in the present 


council was controlled by a- case were overlappii or 
group which, politically, was conflicting powers. There was a 
predominantly Conservative power to create covenants

The committee resolved that the but of owner accommodation at

It was the resolution of 
November 19 of wbich judicial 
review was sought.

apparently reasonable prices. 

If the purpose for which the 
power to create restrictive cov- 
enants was being exercised 
could reasonably be regarded as 


regard to relevant consid- 
erations: (4) irrationality. 

The council appeared and was 
represented but Barratis were 
■not a party. Thc judge dismissed 
the application. 

Political control of the council 
changed after the local govern- 
ment elections. On the appeal, 
the case was argued by counsel 
on behalf of the applicant and 
Barretts. The council took no 
pan in the argument. 

The applicant's principal 
argument was that the cov- 
enants imposed an unlawful 
fetier upon the councirs powers 
as a housing authority. 

As a preliminary consid- 
eration, it was necessary to be 
clear as to what the council was 
doing and why. 

The result of the covenants 
was that, apart from persons 
having statutory rights of occu- 


A1J the powers exercisable for 
the achieving of the statutory 
objects in relation to the land 
and the honest and reasonable 
exercise of a power for that 
purpose could not properly be 
regarded as a fetter upon an- 
other power given for the same 
purpose. 

There was something to be 
said for the view that so long as 
the council retained Part V land 
it should retain all the powers 
which the statute gave in rela- 
tion to that land. 

Thai was simple and logical. 
But it was too inflexible and 
took no account of the diffi- 
culties of administering such an 
estate as Fulham Court. 

The argument based on fetier. 
would be rejected. 

It was further submitted that 
the council did not comply with 
its statutory obligations as to 


pancy the dwellings in the consultation. But. on the tons, 
blocks, were only to be let on that ground of challenge also

Fatima Whitbread, one of

in the javelin, needs to re- 
establish her competitive

breakdown when losing the

Budd is gening back into

helped in the 3,000 metres by

Kristiansen is the outstanding 
favourite.

day of the European athletics 
championships, 1 must fake 
issue with them. We can 
expect, for example, that 
Messrs Ferner, Braun and 
Assmann. of the Federal Ger- 
man Republic, and Basse and 
MogaUe, of the Democratic 
Republic, will be de- 
monstrably more sociable be- 
fore and after the 800 metres 
than are their political masters 
on either side of the Berlin 
WalL 

Regrettably, the many un- 
wholesome aspects of sport, 
such as the deaths in Brussels 
and recent hooliganism in 
Amsterdam, the political boy- 
cotts and self-evident cheating 
with drugs, persuade intelli- 
gent commentators on our way 
of life, such as leader writers in 
The Spectator last week, to 
condemn all sport. 

It is manifestly unfair, not tv 
say illogical, to make no 
distinction between those who 
seek to exploit sport - spec- 
tators who are maladjusted 
social misfits and politicians — 
and those who play sport; or 
between professional and ama-

Cram's quest for further 
gold has found him. torn 
between the podium and the 
therapist's table. But he main- 
tains that he is over the calf 


competition of a higher stan- 
dard, promising faster and 
more exhausting beats, but 
Coe is over the illness which 
forced his withdrawal from 
Edinburgh, and the Britons' 
confrontation in both 800 and 
1,500 metres is one of the 
highlights of these 
championships. 


The saga begins today with 
the 800 metres heats at 7.40 
BST. It would be invidious to 
ignore the foreign opposition 
(as well as the British third 
man, Tom McKean, whose 
fast finish would threaten 
anyone in a slow race) as this 
event has proved on the last 
two occasions, with the little- 
known Oiaf Beyer taking out 
favourites, Ovett and Coe, in 
tbe last few strides in 1978, 
and Hans-Peter Ferner doing 
the same to Coe in 1982. 

But such is the authority 


that Cram brings to bis races, 
even at this shorter distance in 
the Iasi two years, it is difficult 
to see anything other than 
further injury laying him low. 
His 1 min 43_22sec in cold and 
windy conditions in Edin- 
burgh is the fastest in the 
world this year, and his times 
for 800 and 1,500 metres, both 
one second foster than Coe, 
are more indicative of current

last week that ‘'sport is the 
continuation of war by other 
means”, suggests that all sport 
should be abolished. This i$ a 
quite common philosophy 
among intellectuals who breve 
little understanding or no in- 
terest in sport, which Mr 
Levin admits he has not He 
should have a chat with 
Professor Ayer. 

Because there is so much 
war in the world, is it not 
advantageous that sport 
should offer an alternative 
form of aggression, in which 
violent, competitive instincts 
may be, most of the time, 
agreeably sublimated? 
Though I cannot imagine that 
if, say, Steve Cram and Jhigen 
Hingsen were not involved in 
attempting to defeat Sebastian 
Coe and Daley Thompson they 
would be scheming some gun- 
powder plot 

What they are doing here in 
Stuttgart is not only a public 
spectacle preferable to the 
games of Beirut and Belfast, 
but representing an objective 
which can satisfy' and fulfil 
some of tiie human emotions, 
physical and mental, of vast 
numbers of the population 
incapable of appreciating the 
intellectual subtleties of Wag- 
ner, Proust, Keynes or Henry 
Moore. 

The fact that sport is war 
without bullets is why the 
politicians are so eager to use 
it for their own ends. It is 
nonsense for The Spectator to

Y Blevskaya ing politicuus. It is unjust to 


Wame the Olympic Games for 
the murder of the Israelis and 
for Mr Levin to claim the 
Olympics are “the greatest 


culprits among sporting 
horrors". No Court of Appeal 
would accept such judgement 
on the evidence. Did the 
Germans and British in the 
trenches during the Kaiser's 
war not play football on 
Christinas Day? 

Sport's opponents are able, 
of course, to raise a shaming 
list of accusations, all undeni- 
able, against sport. Yet they 
are, in effect, accusing society, 
because sport will always be a 
mirror of the way we live. That 
in part is its fascination, and if 
sport is seen in some instances 
to be evil, then we should all be 
turning our gaze upon our- 
selves: not, in the case of 
Brussels, fulminating about an 
inadequate Minister of Sport 
Brussels apart, let us admit 
however, that the evidence of 
the prosecution is 
uncomfortable. 

There is indeed, as Bernard 
Levin says, a similarity be- 
tween the distorted faces of 
Manchester hooligans and the 
fallen Mary Decker when she 
saw the rest of the runners 
scampering away for the med- 
als in Los Angeles. It is even 
more deplorable that Vainio, 
of Finland, is here competing 
in the 10,000 metres event 
after being convicted of drug- 
taking when coming second in 
Los Angeles. 

Sport has been corrupted by 
politics, nationalism, money 
and drugs, yet some beauty 
remains. The heritage of 
Weeks, Won-all, Walcott and 
Sobers may have been tar- 
nished by intimidatory West 
Indian bowling, but there is 
still the batting of Richards. 
The legends of Matthews, 
Peie and Di Stefano live on in 
Rush, Zico and Bntraguenou 
Orwell's sour pronounce- 
ment that international sport 
Is an unfailing cause of ill-will 
is an exaggeration. The foot- 
ball teams of Hungary and 
Brazil in the fifties, of Aston 
Villa and the Corinthians in 
older times, created inter- 
national goodwill which sur- 
vives to this day. The tennis of 
Maria Bueno and Santana was 
an internationally appreciated 
aesthetic pleasure. The Olym- 
pic triumphs of Owens and 
Zatopek united the minds of 
free men, and Blankers-Koen 
the minds of liberated women. 

The European champion- 
ships have a history of memo- 
rable, honourable moments 
uncluttered by human frailties; 
for example, tbe 5,000 metres 
of 1954 between Kurs, 
Chataway and Zatopek, and of 
1974 between Foster, 
Knscbman and Viren. I am 
optimistic that tbe champion- 
ships of 1986 will have some- 
thing worthwhile to give to the 
world.

RACING; IN-FORM TEAM OF HARWOOD AND STARKEY LOOK SET FOR A TREBL E AT EPSOM

By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 

A highlight in any young a mile and a half on unduiai- 
jockey's career is winning the ing courses and each lime 


Steve' Donoghue Apprentice Jabaraba has been ridden 
Handicap on this the second most competently by Gerald 


day of the August Bank Holi- 
day meeting at Epsom. 

The race is run annually in 


Cottrell's promising young 
apprentice Tommy Lang. 
Clearly they get on well 


1 lie 10^-C 19 IUII (UIIIUUIIJ III hap 

memory of the great jockey togetner. 

who was champion 10 times Every bit as important after 


in a row from 1914 and 1923. 
Also during his career 
Donoghue won ihe Derby six 
times in addition to eight 
other classics. 

Today's race is run over the 
full Derby course, which is an 
experience in itself and after- 
wards the successful young 
rider is presented with a whip, 
a memento which will remain 
a life-long treasure. 

In recent years no tutor has 
been more adept at producing 
promising riders for this 
particular occasion than 
Henry Candy, who has seen 
his own colours worn success- 
fully by both Tyrone Williams 
and Luigi Riggio on that ideal 
equine schoolmaster Going- 
Going. 

Today the master of Kings- 
ton Warren is relying on Ben 
Adhem and Chris Rutter and 
at their best that combination 
would be hard to beat. Ben 
Adhem was a winner at New- 
market in the Spring, while 
Rutter is as experienced as any 
in this sphere. 

However, with the stable 
not exactly firing on all cyl- 
inders at present and Ben 
Adhem absent for almost four 
months, 1 am content to go 
nap again on Jabaraba .who 
did this column a good turn at 
Folkestone a week ago when 
he won his third race in a row. 
starting at 2-1. 

AH three victories were over 


IS long frustrating months, 
Cottrell appears to have got to 
ihe root of the respiratoiy 
problem that had been trou- 
bling Jabaraba since his three- 
year-old days when he was 
sold out orFrank Durr’s virus- 
riddled yard for only WOO 
guineas. 

As a two-year-old Jabaraba 
had a Timetonn rating of 109 
following meritorious vic- 
tories at Redcar, Leicester and 
Doncaster. However, by the 
start of this season that had 
slumped to only 66 and with it 
a lowly spot in the Jockey 
Club's handicaps. 

Recently though, Jabaraba's 
breathing has come right, 
almost overnight, and with it 
this surge in form. His last two 
victories at Folkestone have 
been achieved with the mini- 
mum of fuss and with Lang 
able to claim 3 lb this after- 
noon 1 believe Jabaraba will 
prove hard to beat again. 

Cottrell is also hopeful that 
Tez Shikari. Jabaraba's iravel- 
ling companion from 
Cullomplon m Devon, will go 
well in the Ladas Maiden

Kempton and Folkestone,

at long last at Chepstow by

the River Maiden Stakes. 


Ian Balding's Musical Re-

division of the Castle Maiden 
Slakes at Chepstow yesterday 
and coming from a stable that 
has had more juvenile winners 
than any other, was made odds- 
on favourite, but she met her 
match in Rhondaling. 

The two had the race to 
themselves through the last two 
furlongs. drawing eight lengths 
dear of the rest, and Rhondaling 
outstayed the favourite to win 
but threequarters of a length. 

Nicky Howe, riding his tenth 
winner of the season, told Mrs 
Peter Wajwyn that he had got to 
the front sooner than be wished, 
but he had not wanted to 
disappoint the filly. Mrs 
Wahvyn said “Rhonda] ing is 
such a good mover we thought 
she miglst not like the wet 
ground, but she handled it well”. 

Conditions were also pretty 
testing for the IS apprentices in 


the Cierwent Handicap. They 
were riding into driving rain and 
a mist, but it is a day Russell 
Price will never forget, for be 
rode die first winner of his 
career on Petit Bot, a 14-1 
chance. The filly was not ex- 
pected to enjoy the soft ground, 
but she came through it really 
well to master Stone broker dose

Price, aged IS, from Barry, 
said: “Its fantastic to ride your 
first winner, and I hope to have 
many more. I've been with Mr 
Mnsson at Newmarket for six 
months, and be is giving me a 
chance. I've never been in the

The Erst American to witness

Stanley to find Livingstone, who 
arranged the US Arctic ex- 
pedition of 1879 and who pro- 
moted die Commercial Cable 
company. He was also a great 
patron of American sport. 

After watching some matches 
.at Hortingham in 1876, this 
formidable jomwalist took a 
good su pply of sticks and halls

Bbssoa, New York's leading

they ride very hard, bnt the most 
impressive feature was their 
invariable amt co nsumma te po- 
sition play.” 

For Che next seven years the 
Americans went to work os their 
tactics and. under the strict 
training mid captaincy of Harry 
Payne Whitney, in 1909, won 
the Westchester for the first 
time. With the same fine-np, in 
1911 — Whitney, Devernex

and with the waste of, the War 
years, had not only lost toe 
momentum of the game, bat were 
financially poorer, too. 

In contrast, the American 
economy of the 1920s boomed,

ever, and, while some of oar

1956 and 1959. Only in 1936 - 
when Hortingham was repre- 
sented by Gerald Balding, 
Hesketh Hegbes, Eric TyrreJJ- 
Martin and Humphrey 
G aimless (a Royal Soots Greys 
captain and champion rackets 
player) — did England give a 
good account of herself. “There 
was little or nothing to choose 
between the two teams from 
start to finish,” The Times 
correspondent wrote. “A slight 
superiority in pony-power was 
responsible for the American 
victory.” 

The United States held its 
place as die supreme polo nation

The championship leaders. 
, Gloucestershire, are entitled to 
( feel that fate is turning against 
. them. Yesterday play was Te- 
. stricted to two hours in the 
; morning, the fourth time in 
, their last five matches that the 
[ middle day has been virtually 
> washed out 

, The widespread rain ensured 
i that their rivals were not able to 
lake advantage of their idleness, 
but with' Essex breathing down 
■ ihcir necks, a weakened Lan- 
cashire had offered the prospect 
of extending their lead by claim- 
ing their first win since early 
August 

Thai was on paper anyway. 
But even before the rain set in 
Gloucestershire had made only 
faltering progress after declaring 
at their overnight total of 354. 
Without the services of Russell, 
who had relumed to be with his 
brother, who is in intensive care 
after a weekend accident 
Brassinglon taking over behind 
the stumps, Walsh and Law- 
rence extracted little life from a 
dead pitch, although Walsh beat 
the bat on several occasions. 

Benjamin 
brightens 
a dull day 

By Peter Marson 

Derbyshire lost their last 
three wickets to Eddie 
Hemmings. who took five for 
107. in their advance by 32 runs 
in 13 overs to 275. against 
Nottinghamshire at Trent 
Bridge, yesterday. After Sharma 
had fallen leg before as be bad 
aimed to sweep, Hemmings 
promptly bowled Wood and 
Malcolm. 

When Nottinghamshire made 
a start to their innings. Broad, 
who had been Notting- 
hamshire's hero in making a 
hundred on the previous day, 
now got out for nought caught 
at third slip by Barnett off 
Malcolm's bowLmg with the 
score two. Robinson was in 
form, though, and he had made 
47 not out and Newell 26 not 
out when rain, shortly after 
lunch, brought about an early 
dose, 

’ There had been time only for 
one and a half hours play at 
Grace Road, Leicester, in the 
match between Leicestershire 
and Northamptonshire. 
Leicestershire moved on by 104 
runs to 36? for nine. 

Starting out at 263 for five, 

I Boon and De Freitas put on 55 
1 for the sixth wicket before De 
I Freitas, in foiling to Cook, 
became the first ofCook's three 
; wickets. When Larkins caught 
Whittkase. Harper too. had 
taken three wickets, and then, 
Leicestershire were 308 for nine. 

It was here that Winston 
Benjam iii’s batting brightened a 
dull day. and in a flourish of 
four sixes and five fours, Benja- 
min had made a half century off 
24 balls in 23 minutes. 


Cfod wictT frnppedTeg before on

With two centuries already to 
his credit, he looked on course 
for a third until the ram arrived. 
His ability against -pace is un- 
questioned. reviving the sugges- 
tions of two years ago that he 
should receive serious consid- 
eration as a potential England 
tourist, and he was severe on

after his fall 

By A Correspondent 

Neil Robinson scored his first 
win in the I300cc Shell Oils 
ACU British Transnational 
championship at Oulton Park 
yesierday. 

In the previous day’s round 
the Skoal Bandit Heron Suzuki 
rider had challenged ihe even- 
tual winner, Roger Burnett, i 
before falling but ibis time 
Robinson made no mistake in 
the rain to take the sixteenth 
round ahead of Roger Marshall 
and Roger Burnell, the 
Rothmans Honda Britain stars. 

The 250cc race was taken by 
Kevin Mitchell from RobOrme. 
despite Orme putting in the 
fosiesi lap in the race, which was 
shortened to six Japs, as was its 
predecessor, because of the atro- 
cious conditions.

Injudicious comment 
to referee earns 
Rush a sending-off 


By Dennis Shaw 

Liverpool 0 

Manchester — 0 

Players and officials were 
involved in after-match con- 
troversy when Ian Rush was 
sent off in the aftermath of the 
goal -less draw at Anffeld. The 
Welsh international, who 
moves to Juventus for £3 
million at the end of the 
season, was “sent off” for 
‘‘foul and abusive” language 
as he was leaving the field. 
“He made a comment to me 
and I sent him off,” Ken 
WaJmsJey, the Blackpool 
official, said. 

The ill-feeling dated to an 
84th minute incident when a 
shot by MacDonald, a sub- 
stitute, struck Cements on the 
arm but the referee waved 
play on. 

As the players and officials 
left the field there was a good 
deal of arguing and dissent 
“There is one law for the 
players and one for officials,” 
Kenny Dalglish, the Liverpool 
player-manager, said. “An of- 
ficial swore at one of my 
players but tbe lad could not 
send the official off” Rush 
declined to comment on the 
incident 

Liverpool, who last season 
won the League and FA Cup, 
proudly displayed the latest 
additions to their unique 
collection of trophies before 
the kick-off' but were then 
unable to reproduce the 
match-winning qualities 
which captured them. The 
champions were frustrated 


and ultimately mesmerized by 
a defensive display of commit- 
ment that contained every- 
thing — including the 
necessary luck. 

Manchester City had ar- 
rived with a record of one win 
at Liverpool in 13 attempts 
dating to 1953, but they can 
never have worked harder to 
improve those sad statistics. 

It was a day when nothing 
that Liverpool tried in attack 
worked out right. In contrast 
City’s defence, around 
Clements and McCarthy 
could do little wrong. How the 
champions needed one of 
those winning goals by Rush. 

They started slowly, squan- 
dered a chance or two, became 
enmensbed in a rear guard 
which often numbered 10 and 
went through a range of 
moods from casual to frantic. 

By three-quarter time Liver- 
pool had been reduced to 
launching one frenzied assault 
after another on the goal at the 
foot of a Kop becoming more 
alarmed by tbe minute. 
Lawrenson missed twice, 
Whelan run the ball passed a 
post and defensive deflections 
and interceptions added to the 
mounting tail of those that got 
away. In truth Suckling, City’s 
new young goalkeeper from 
Coventry, hid few saves to 
make though he did dive to 
keep out Whelan late on. 

Johnston’s right wing surges 
were the greatest threat to a 
retreating defence though 
Gillespie, a defender, almost 
broke through with a long shot 
which curved the wrong way. 

City were granted the rare 


luxury of two scoring chances 
in the early minutes. Botb fell 
to Christie, the ex-Derby 
striker, conceded by a defence 
temporarily vulnerable as 
■Gillespie and Hansen sorted 
out their positional duties. 
Christie felled to connect 
firmly with the first allowing 
Hooper to save. He then 
stubbed his studs in the turf as 
he attempted to improve on it 

The opposition at Anffeld 
get few such favours and City 
had wasted theirs. However, 
Liverpool proved to be 
equally charitable with their 
finishing. Whelan was a frac- 
tion ofT target from the left 
hand side then fired straight at 
the goalkeeper from the right 

In tbe absence of the famed 
Liverpool brand of finishing 
the crowd chilled by wet, raw 
November-like conditions, 
were forced to concentrate on 
the delicate skills of Daglish 
for first-half consolation. 

Most of the build-ups were 
directed through him allowing 
tbe player-manager to dem- 
onstrate his repertoire.. 

City’s contribution was 
essentially one of dosing 
down the opposition ana 
denying space wherever pos- 
sible. However, it worked to 
perfection helped by 
Liverpool's shortcomings and 
will frustrate opponents at 
lesser venues than this.

Uncertain Everton hold on 


By John Doagray 

Sheffield Wednesday — 2 
Everton 2 

Everton, weakened by inju- 
ries to key players and tbe 
departure of Gary Lineker to 
Barcelona, were fortunate to 
escape with a draw after a 
stuttering performance against 
Sheffield Wednesday at 
Hillsborough yesterday. Twice 
Everton found themselves in 
arrears to a lively Wednesday, 
but each time they picked 
themselves up to earn a point 
from a vigorous, if occasionally 
dap-dash, contest 

Wednesday began con- 
fidently, missing two half 1 
chances, before Everton came 
within inches of taking the lead 
in the tenth minute. A well- 
constructed attack that had 
begun with Heath shaking off 
his marker, Madden, with an 
astonishing turn of speed, ended 
with a chance in front of goal for 
Sheedy, who headed over the 
bar. 

It was a miss Everton were to 


regret, for two minutes later 
Wednesday went ahead through 
Shutt following some confusion 
in the Everton defence. Wednes- 
day attacked down tbe right and 
after Gregory’s low cross was 
mis-kicked by Shelton, the ball 
travelled to Snodin who rifled it 
back across goal where Shelton 
deflected it into the net 

As is their wont. Wednesday 
employed an off-side trap which 
Everton strayed into time and 
again. On the half-hour, how- 
ever, Sharp cleverly made room 
for himself only to pull the ball 
narrowly wide. A near miss by 
Snodin at one end was followed 
two minutes later by a goal at 
the other. Langley won a chal- 
lenge midway inside the 
Wednesday half before turning 
4he ball wide to Sharp who 
scored from just inside the' 
penally area. 

After 61 minutes the defender 
Worthington came off to be 
replaced by David Hirst, aged 
IS, as Wednesday looked for 
more scoring power. The 
substitution worked a treat. 
Almost immediately. 
Marwood's low cross penetrated 


the Everton defence and Hirst 
came thundering in to drive the 
ball home with his first kick of 
the game. Wednesday’s lead was 
short lived though. In the 69th 
minute, Langley drove the ball 
low into a crowded goalmouth 
where it took a wicked deflec- 
tion to send Hodge the wrong 
way and put Everton on level 
terms.

Tottenham Hotspur-— 1 
Newcastle United 1 

A goal by Peter Beardsley 
against the run of play three 
minutes from the end or a game 
in which they had been largely 
outplayed by Tottenham 
Hotspur gave Newcastle United 
their first point of the season ax 
White Hart Lane yesterday. 

Beardsely's late strike left 
Spurs rue mg their lost opportu- 
nities and the feet that they had 
only a lucky Clive Allen goal to 
show for all their domination. 
But it would be churlish to 
complain, for at no time did 
Spurs shut up shop, content 
with their lot, in an entertaining 
game. 

The price Tottenham paid for 
their adventurous outlook was a 
heavy one, as Beardsley empha- 
sized with tbe goal which only 
served to remind us of what he 
had achieved for En gland in 
Mexico. 

So scant was the earlier 


service to Beardsley and his 
much bigger partner in attack, 
the muscular Whitehurst, that 
Spurs could almost be forgiven 
for neglecting their duties in a 
sense. With the greasy surface 
not conducive to defending. 
Spurs sensibly kept on the attack 
from the first minute when 
Mitchell Thomas, their other 
new signing, almost let in Davis. 

Apart from another aberra- 
tion, by Mabbutt this time, 
which presented Whitehurst 
with a shot which Cfemence 
dealt with. Spots kept going 
forward with Hoddle, as ever, 
creating the openings for Allen, 
Waddle and Falco. 

The scorer of all three Totten- 
ham goals against Aston Villa 
on Saturday, Allen owed his 
latest strike to a fortunate 
rebound. It came from the 
outstretched hand of Thomas, 
who bad dived to keep out a 
cross from Waddle, who had 
brought tbe ball out of defence 
and exchanged passes with 
Galvin after Newcastle had 
earned a rare corner. 

Psychologically, the goal had 


come at a good time and 
Tottenham were not slow to 
take tbe initiative after the 
resumption. They poured for- 
ward as relentlessly as the rain 
continued to come down. Rob- 
erts almost ran through for an 
astonishing goal for a man ofhis 
bulk, only for Thomas to fling 
out a desperate hand, and Falco 
had two shots stopped by the 
goalkeeper and another by 
Clarke’s midriff 

Clarke, for upending Waddle, 
and Bailey, for tripping AUen, 
were booked as Newcastle re- 
sorted to foul means to with- 
stand the pressure. Their 
obstinacy bought its reward 
when Beardsley, after exchang- 
ing passes with Wharton, clev- 
erly slipped the ball past 
Clemen ce and Stevens, who had 
come back to challenge.

Stoke, having taken a first- 
minute lead through Carl 
Saunders, lost 2-1 at Leeds and 
had George Berry, their captain 
and centra] defender, sent off 
three minutes from the end. 
Berry was dismissed for his 
second bookable offence of the 
game. 


Gordon is put on stand-by 


Wimbledon, at home to 
Aston Vina today, will give 
late fitness tests to Laurie 
Sanchez and John Fashanu. 
Sanchez, a midfield player, 
injured his foot in Saturday's 
3-1 defeat at Manchester City, 
while Fashanu, a forward, 
injured an ankle in tbe same 
match. 

Standing by in case Fashanu 
fails his test is Colin Gordon, 
Wimbledon's £90,000 sum- 
mer signing from Swindon, 
whose 1 7 goals helped his side 
to last season’s fourth division 
championship. 

David Bassett, the manager, 
has also added Mick Smith 
(defence) and John Gannon 
(midfield) to the squad. 


Bassett sai± The lads are 
fairly buoyant after Saturday. 
They realized they played 
quite well at Maine Road, but 
are disappointed they concede . 
ed tbe goals the way they did 
in those eight minutes.” 

Martin Reown, Villa’s sum- 
mer signing from Arsenal, is 
also on stand-by to make his 
debut. The defender, aged 20, 
missed the 3-0 home defeat by 
Tottenham Hotspur on Satur- 
day because of a slight ham- 
string strain, buz could take 
over at right back because of 
an injury to Gary Williams. 

Graham Turner, the Villa 
manager, is unlikely to change 
the side drastically: T could 
not be too critical of the 
players on Saturday,” he said

Juantorena’s 
support for 
North Korea 

Stuttgart (Reuter) — Cuba will 
boycott the 1988 summer Olym- 
pic Gaines in Seoul if North 
Korea is not allowed to stage the 
Games jointly, Alberto 
Juanlorena. the former Cuban 
top athlete said yesterday. 

Juanlorena. in Stuttgart as 
Cuban delegate to the Inter- 
national Amateur Athletic 
Federation (IAAF) congress. 

told Reuters; “We want to have 

the Olympic Games in North 
Korea too. 

“If the discussions between 
South and North Korea about 
sharing the Gaines does noL 
succeed, we will definitely not 
be going. But naturally we hope 
they will succeed” 

Juanlorena. who won gold 
medals over 400 and 800 meters 
at the 1976 Olympics, said Cuba 
considered Korea ro be a single 
country. 

The International Olympic 
Committee has awarded the 
Games to Seoul but has en- 
couraged discussions between 
the two countries about staging 
some events in the north. 

The IOC fears that Mure to 
find a solution could spark off a 
general Soviet bloc boycott of 
the Games.

By Give White 

Oxford United 1 

Chelsea 1 

TbeJekyUandHydein David 
Speedie’s c haracterjoined forces 
yesterday for a good cause, if not 
entirely synonymous with that 
of tbe Chelsea forward Tbe 
volatile little Scot and a Mow 
Chelsea supporter, having 
agreed to donate £10 each to 
charity every time Speedie 
scores or is booked this season, 
found themselves each having 
to pay out to a worthwhile 
cause. 

Having been booked in . the 
26ih minute for spitefully kick- 
ing the ball against Briggs while 
the Oxford player lay on the 
ground he was not about to let 
his associate off lightly. Nine 
minutes later the donah cm was 
doubled when be boldly dived 
to head the ball between Dixon's 
legs and past the confused Judge 
in goal 

Last season the good and the 
bad of Speedie would have 
earned for some grateful charity 
£350 (including a £25 bonus for 
a three-goal match or a sending- 

ofT), of which Speedie's 
contribution would have bam 
£1 50 which suggests he is not all 


bad If hitting himself In the 
pocket is not going to curb his 
temper it is difficult to know 
what John Hollins, the manager, 
ran do other t h a n dropping his 
most talented player. Off the 
field Speedie is such a person- 
able young man. 

The early Irritability which 
abounded in yesterday's game 
did not all stem from Speedie 
but fortunately it slowly cooled 
in the unrelenting rain and the 
football eventually surfaced. 
Considering the conditions at 
the Manor Ground, Chelsea 
looked suitably attired in a new 
aqua-marine lot But it was 
Oxford who looked the more 
attractive with a directness 
which Chebea always struggled 
to emulate. 

Godden, in the Chelsea good, 
did well to block a dose-range 
volley by Aldridge in the open- 
ing minutes and McLaughlin 
deservedly earned himself the 
same fete as Speedie when he 
cynically fouled tbe Oxford 
striker as he broke dear. 

After Speedie’s 

misdemeanour, an instance in 
which Phillips of Oxford was 
booked, Chelsea sealed down to 
their best spdL And Speedie's 
goal gave them the lead in the ' 
35th minute. Dune, their latest 


expensive signing from north of 
the border, was notable for tbe 
poverty of his finishing rather 
than anything else, heading over 
in the free position and then 
succeeding in striking tbe ball at 
right angles to tbe Oxford goal 
after a- fluent .move which 
originated ’with foe skilful 
Murphy. 

' Oxford eventually polled 
level in the 52nd minute with an 
equalizer which proved to be 
well merited. Langan swung a 
long free trick to tbe far post and 
Briss, climbing high, scored 
with an obtusely angled header 
from dose to the byline. 

Thereafter, Godden was bat- 
tered from post to post as the 
Milk Gap holders rallied for 
what they believed would- have 
.been a deserved victory. Bui 
Chelsea held firm and inevitably 
Speedie almost had the last 
word, chipping in a perfect cross 
to. Dixon’s feet but the England 
forward jabbed the ball over the 
crossbar.

Vanessa Redgrave: on Channel 4, 

tonight at 9.00pm 


• There Is both sorcery and 
source™ at work in the three- 
parter THREE SOVEREIGNS 
TOR SARAH, episode one of 
which Is on Channel 4, 

9.00pm. The sorcery Is the 
witchcraft alleged to have 
been practised by men, women 
and cnHdren of Salem, Mass. 

In 1 69* The sourcery Itos in the 
authenticity of tonight's film 
because Vic Pisano's script 
draws heavily on the 
transcripts of the witchcraft 
trials. In contrast, at least two 
eminent writers. Miner ( with 77*e 
Cmdb/oJ and Sartre (with Las 
Sorderes de Salem), used the 
hysterical happenings in . . 
Salem as a basis for plays and 
films that transferred the 
persecution of the "witches' 
from their original religious 
context to wider political and 
psychological frameworks. 


CHOICE 


Pisano is no Sartre or Miter but 
Uka them, be searches beyond 
the Devil and all tts works for the 
truth behind the witchcraft 
trials , and from what I have seen 
of Three So vemigns for 
Sarah so far, he seems to have 

found it in ecclesiastical 

politics and domestic bad blood. 
Atmospherically. Sarah 
cannot be faulted, with its wintry 
landscaped opening and 
hangman's tree complete with 
human fruit The dialogue is 
functional and occasionally 
anachronistic as, for 
instance, when Vanessa 
Redgrave, frying to dear her 
dead sisters names in front of a 
Royal Commission, talks 
wryly about one of the 


possessed Salem girls going 
into her hysterical act " on

McAvennie keeps 
United waiting 
for first victory 


By Stuart Jones 

Football Correspondent 

Manchester United 2 

West Ham United ........... 3 

Eleven months ago, after 
Manchester United had won 
their opening 10 League fix- 
tures, the nation was wonder- 
ing when (hey would ever be 
beaten. Now, after beginning 
with two successive defeats, a 
significant number of their 
own disgruntled supporters 
left Old Traffard yesterday 
wondering when they might 
see their side claim a victory. 

The season in the famous 
arena was officially a mere 32 
seconds old before United 
were behind. Orr gained pos- 
session. Dickens chipped over 
a line of red statues, 
McAvennie accelerated to- 
wards Turner with no-one to 
accompany him and scored 
with accustomed ease. It was 
West Ham United's first at- 
tack of the rain-swept 
afternoon. 

They did not construct 
many more except for the odd 
break. Nor, for some 40 
minutes, did they need to. 
Their defence, led by the 
outstanding Martin, was 
comfortable enough as it with- 
stood a challenge that was 
energetic but, without either 
Robson or Olsen, short of 
inspiration and, therefore, 
penetration. 

West Ham did creak occa- 


sionally. A Davenport volley 
stretched Parkes, for instance, 
McGrath's effort was ruled 
out for offside, Davenport 
struck the side-netting from an 
oblique angle and, after evad- 
ing Parkes, saw his low cross 
blocked But they never lost 
either their composure or their 
discipline. 

No side is better equipped 
for the rapid coumer-ankk 
and, six minutes before the 
interval, they extended their 
lead with a goal of delightful 
simplicity. Devonshire, glid- 
ing in as usual from the left, 
exchanged neatly with the 
accomplished Parris and 
lobbed accurately over 
Turner, a goalkeeper notably 
short in stature. 

The rest, it seemed, would 
be predictable. United are so 
lacking in fire-power that 
Blackmore, a midfield player 
in the mould of Wilkins, was 
their lone marksman during 
their disappointing perfor- 
mances in their pre-season 
games. But, within a minute, 
they pulled one back and, 
what is more, the man respon- 
sible was a forward. 

Stapleton, lingering menac- 
ingly at the far post behind 
Hilton and Pams, struck a 
timely psychological blow by 
nodding in Gibson's long 
cross. West Ham's belief and 
shape began to fade and, 
moments into the second halft 
they were no longer in control 
nor in the lead. 


A comer from Strachan, 
United’s most consistently 
threatening figure, was nudged 
on by McGrath and ushered in 
though not touched by 
Stapleton and Parris. The rest, 
it seemed, would be predict- 
able. United, lifted by a crowd 
that was over 2,000 below last 
season's average, had taken 
over the superior role. 

Stapleton again, Gibson and 
Blackmore, who clipped the 
bar from 20 yards, might have 
confirmed it and will now 
regret not doing so. Five 
minutes from the end West 
Ham, so fleet-footed in the 
front line, broke once more 
and claimed the winner. 

Ward controlled a lengthy 
clearance, looked up to check 
on the position of lus col- 
leagues and curled a cross 
precisely on to the forehead of 
McAvennie. Turner, exposed 
again for his lack of height, 
was caught in two minds as 
the subsequent header looped 
over him. McAvennie, who 
claimed 26 goals in the League 
last season, is already on his 
way.

Shreeve to coach full time 


Peter Shreeve, who was 
sacked as manager of Totten- 
ham at the end of last season, 
yesterday agreed to join 
Queen’s Park Rangers' coach- 
ing staff. The popular Shreeve 
dii some temporary work for 
Rangers while the first team 
were recently on torn- in Swe- 
den. His new post is full-time. 

Shreeve was bora in Wales 
and brought up in London. He 
played more than 100 League 
games for Reading and, after 
his playing career was cut 
short by in» sry, qualified as a 
London taxi driver as well as 


gaining a fid! Football Associ- 
ation coaching badge. 

He coached at Charlton 
before joining Spurs in 1974. 
In his 12 years at the North 
London dub he worked his 
way np from youth team 
manager to reserve team coach 
to assistant manager and, 
when Keith BerMasiaw left, 
to manager in June 1984. 

His first season in charge 
saw Tottenham mount a seri- 
ous challenge for the League 
title but last season the first 
team's performances stomped 
as badly as the club’s finances 


and Shreeve eventually paid 
the price. 

• Queen's Park Rangers yes- 
terday completed the £200,000 
signing of Sammy Lee from 
Liverpool. The London dnb 
had been favouritks to sign 
the England international 
midfield player for some 
weeks, but were rehmtant 
to meet (he champions' asking 
price. Saturday's disastrous 
start to the season, when 
Rangers lost 5-1 at Southamp- 
ton, obviously persuaded than 
to stop baggfing. 


CYCLING 


Hinault takes his revenge 

From John Witoockson, Boulder, Colorado 


American cycling com- 
pleted another step in its 
Europeanization when a shin- 
sleeved crowd of 50,000 Colo- 
radans saluted Bernard 
Hinault after he won the 12th 
Coors International Gassic on 
Sunday, ahead of his great 
rival, Greg LeMond. “It’s 
always nice to win a great 
victory,” the Frenchman, aged 
31. said, "particularly as this 
was the last stage race of my 
career." 

Hinault reversed the 
plarings of this year's Tour de 
France over his American 
colleague, LeMond, who 
experienced a difficult finish 
to the 1 5-day race. The Ameri- 
can was too sick to attend an 


official team reception on 
Saturday night, and he strug- 
gled during the early pan of 
the final 61-mile stage that 
covered 37 laps of a hilly 
circuit in North Boulder Park. 

Phil Anderson, of Australia, 
who was challenging LeMond 
for second place, said: “I saw 
that Greg was having trouble 
on the hill, so I was trying to 
call all my team-mates to the 
front to set a fast tempo. But 
they all seemed too tired to 
carry out my instructions.” 

LeMond admitted that he 
was on the point of being 
dropped several times, but his 
Canadian team colleague.

Botham 
brings 
back the 
magic 

By John Woodcock 
Cricket Correspondent 

THE OVAL: England, with 
five first innings wickets in 
hand, lead New Zealand by 
101 runs. 

There was only just over an 
hour's cricket in the third Test 
match against New Zealand, 
sponsored by CornhilL yes- 
terday, but it was worth many 
a week of push and prod. In 1 5 
overs England took their score 
from 281 for three to 388 for 
five with much their most 
uninhibited cricket of the 
year. By- the time the rain set 
in for the day, the great 
Hadlee, armed with a new 
ball. was bowling to one slip 
and with all his other fielders 
on overseas postings. 

It was. of course, a dreadful 
disappointment when the 
weather forecasters were 
proved righL The crowd was 
in ecstasy at the time, Botham 
having scored 59 in 36 balls as 
only he and Vivian Richards 
can. The match finishes today, 
and if New Zealand are to be

beaten now they will have to 
lose their heads as they- no 
longer do. In the days of 
uncovered pitches there 
would have been a lot more 
possibilities. 

There were no half mea- 
sures about England yes- 
terday. Suspecting that time 
was short they made the very 
most of what there was. There 
was no question of putting 
persona] considerations first 
Gower soon played on off the 
inside edge, throwing the bat 
at Chatfield. His had been a 
lovely innings. Gatting, 86 not 
out at the start of play, led by 
example, storming to his hun- 
dred with three fours in four 
balls from Gray — a back-foot 
pull, a lofted on-drive and a 
delayed, Comptonesque 
sweep. 

After going 30 Test matches 
without making a Test hun- 
dred this was Gattiiig's sixth 
in bis last 17 (though few do 
any better than that), bis 
second since taking over the 
captaincy earlier this summer 
and his first against New 
Zealand. Despite losing 
Gower, he went racing on 




• v! ■'! hill 

A myth in motion: Botham living np to the legend at the Oval yesterday 


before being bowled trying to 
hit Chatfield through the leg 
side. Gatling made 35 yes- 
terday in 35 balls and 35 
minutes. On his way out he 
had a talk with Botham, no 
doubt weighing up the op- 
tions. Of ti»e . 41 which they 
had made together. Gatting’s 
share was 36. With Emburey, 
Botham now made 51 of the 
next 62. At the rate he was 
going the rain would not have 
had to hold off for much 
longer for Richards’s fastest 
Test hundred (in 56 balls 
against England in Antigua 
last April) to be in danger. 

When the new ball was 
taken, at 332 for five, Botham 
was 12. No one had been 
looking forward to Botham's 
confrontation with Hadlee 
more than Botham himself 
He had been talking of going 
down the pitch to him, the 
first ball they met, just to 
make a point. In the event he 
thought better of it, Gatting 
ha ring just been oul Not only 


that Botham sent for his 
helmet when Hadlee came on. 
But he soon broke up Hadlee's 
attacking field. It was a very 
special piece of cricket. 

At the other end Botham 
gave a suitably spectacular 
chance to Blain. the wicket- 
keeper, off Stirling. Making to 
pull, he skied the ball to the 
height of the Post Office 
Tower. Just to watch it going 
up gave one vertigo, and its 
very steepness made it a 
horrible catch for Blain to 
judge. When eventually it 
came down he was only just in 
the same parish. 

In Stirling’s next over, he 
went for 24. Botham hitting 
him for two sixes and three 
fours, the sixes to long-leg and 
long-on. But by the time he 
reached his 50 in 48 minutes 
off 32 balls the ground staff 
were making their way to the 
covers. Botham and Emburey. 
I'm sure, would have stayed 
on in the rain, but there was 


no reason why the New Zea- 
landers should. Once the rain 
started, that was it for the day. 

Forgetting West Indies and 
his troubles over there, it has 
made a world of difference 
having Botham back in the 
side. His bowling was not up 
to much after his remarkable 
start on Thursday, but at No 6, 
certainly in England, certainly 
he remains a towering figure, 
capable of persuading even 
Richard Hadlee to have eight 
men in thfr deep. Already we 
are living again in the present 
rather than labouring the re- 
cent past.

Peter Lush, ihc marketing 
manager or the Test and 
County Cricket Board, yes- 
terday’ announced that spec- 
tators who had tickets for 
yesterday's ram-hit play at the.

last day of the match.

of the season flvo Tennant 
writes). Peter .Edwards, the 
secretary/manager, said the 
cricket committee would be 
unlikely to discuss the sitting 
of another overseas player to 
replace Allan Binder before 
the end of the season. He ruled 
out the prospect of Ken 
McEwan returning to Essex 
since he is no longer registered 
as a player . 


is Philippe Collard, of France, 
who has -run lmin 45. 11 sec 
this season. 

Cram, who starts as gold 
medal favourite for both 800 
and 1,500 metres, has a 
slightly harder heat than 
McKean. Cram lines up in 
heat number three with Viktor 
Kalinkin, of the Soviet Union, 
who has run 1:45.18 this 
‘season, and Sammy Mogalle, 
of East Germany, and Bo 
Breigan, of Norway, while 
McKean, in heat number two 
faces one of the West German 
medal hopes, the national 
champion, Matthias 
Assmann, who has run 1:44.59 
this year. The only other 
runner likely to trouble 
McKean, who has run 1:44.80, 
in winning the Common- 
wealth bronze medal, is 
Coloman Trabado, the Span- 
ish multiple indoor medal 
winner. 


SPORT IN BRIEF 


Coe gave a Press conference 
yesterday and said that he 
wanted to avoid the same trap 
that he and Ovett fell into in 
1978, that of thinking that this 
was going to be a two-man 
race; but this time between 
himself and Cram. Having 
never won an international 
gold medal at this, his world- 
record distance, Coe said that

thinks that the heats and semi- 
finals will be run in around 
1:46, “with the final run in 
under 1:43". Coe also said that

The resurgent Allan Wells 
has had the worst of today's 
100 metres heats. With three 
to qualify from each heat, plus 
only one fastest loser overall 
-from the five heals. Wells 
feces three men with far faster 


times than him this year. 
Antoine Richard, of France, 
has run 10.09. Christian Haas, 
of West Germany, has ran 
10.18 and Viktor Muravyev, 
of the Soviet Union, has run 
10.19. Since Wells has ran 
only 10.40, he seems to have a 
difficult task. Linford Christie 
has drawn the next strongest 
heat, with Ronald Desrueiles, 
of Belgium, and Bruno Marie- 
Rose, of France. But Christie, 
with his new United Kingdom 
record of 10.04 seconds, is one 
of the two fastest men here. 
Mike McFarlane has drawn 
the fastest . man. Viktor 
Bryzgto, of the Soviet Union,

10.03, finished last in his only

There was so much to

too. 

The medal distribution was 
healthily wide, tn the men’s

' World championship row- 
ing Is about having the right 
athletes, time, money and 
coaching expertise along with 
many other variables. It is a 
hard technical sport and one of 

the purest remaining. 

There are so many mem- 
ories from the 21 world titles 
contested over the weekend. 
The young heavyweight 
Australian eight must be ad- 
mired. They have impressed 
aD season and a medal beck- 
oned, although not necessarily 
the gold. After winning at 
Lucerne (with the top Soviets 
and the United States absent) 
they went on the win the 
Commonwealth Games title. 

Oi Sunday, the Australians 
progressively wound them- 
selves np down the course and 
remarkably had clear water 
over a broken-hearted Russian 
eight and the United States. 
The British eight finished last 
in the Small finals and one 
wonders bow they tost so much 
in a relatively short tune. In 
Lucerne and Strathclyde they 
were always hanging on to the 
tail of the Australians. 

While Some areas of the 
British team leave much to be

build on. The British coxed

was a classic victory. 

The British coxfess pair. 
Cross and Clift, were just 
short of medal class. These at 
present are Britain's front- 
runners for the 1988 Seoul 
Olympics regatta. The British

It is remarkable, too. that 
the likes of single scullers, 
Peter-Michae! Kolbe, of West 
Germany, and -Finland's 
Olympic champion, Perrti 
Karptonen, can still rule the 
rOost after a decade of suc- 
cesses at the age of 33. . 

This is normally well , past 
the appropriate moment to 
ug np one's scull s and

fervour, and they go yet faster.

Britain's new world champion 
in lightweight double stalls, a 
teacher, Allan WhitwelL aged 
32 , won the Olympic, silver

To win his lightweight world 
.title on Sunday, Whitweil had 
to shed some eight kilos 
skilfully enough to keep his 
strength. He now feels as fit as 
a fiddle. But every crew and 
individual has a story to tell iQ

by the British. 

Thankfully, too, the British
