Heath on Wednesday night, 
Mrs Thatcher, already weak- 
ened by the Westland affair, 
was cornered by the outright 
opposition of her ministerial 
colleagues to the Ford option. 

One government source 
said that the decision was a 
reverse and it had been 
necessary to swallow it and 
get it out of the way at 
maximum speed. Another 
excited source has said that 
the Chancellor of the Exche- 
quer, Mr Nigel Lawson, had 
been the Prime Minister's 
only ally. 

One minister said last 
night, with evident satisfac- 
tion: “Collective responsibil-

Joseph to 
defy exam 
boycott 

By Lucy Hodges

The new GCSE examina- 
tion for 16-year-olds will go 
ahead despite a boycott from 
the »two bi^esi teaching 
unions. Sir . Keith Joseph, 
Secretary of Stale for Educa- 
tion and Science, said yester- 
day. 

He said courses for the new 
exam would begin this au- 
tumn, as planned, and the 
training programme for 
teachers would continue. 

“The Government does 
not intend to postpone the 
GCSE,” he said. “Parents 
and their children will not 
understand a refusal by 
teachers to implement the 
GCSE”

widely welcomed by Conser-

speculation bad been lifted. 

But Mr Heath, the former 
Prime Minister, said that the

Government had done noth- 
ing to alleviate the “very real 
fears and anxieties” that had 
been expressed by Conserva-

He asked: “Is it not in fact 
accurate to say that what is 
proposed is a complete take- 
over by General Motors of 
British Leytand and control 
would then go to Detroit? 

“it is to that which so 
many of us are strongly 
opposed and we shall main-

Mr Channon told the

that the General Moiors-BL

He said that he hoped “it 
will not be long" before he 
could inform the House of

Hope for exports boost 

Russia trade plan 


By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 


Britain and the Soviet 
Union yesterday announced 
a new long-term economic 
and industrial co-operation 
programme which the Gov- 
ernment said should help 
British firms to win exports 
worth billions of pounds into 
the next decade. 

The five-year programme, 
which could be extended for 
another five years, has been 
drawn up under the British- 
Soviet Joint Commission. 

Mr Paul Channon, the new 
Secretary of State for Trade 
and Industry, said that there 
were good prospects for 
British companies to export 
to the Soviet Union, and he 


sions. The commission’s 
meeting has been postponed 
four times since last year, but 


when he told the Commons 
defence committee that sum- 
maries of key documents 
provided to it by the Depart- 
ment of Trade and Industry 
were inadequate. 

In another serious dash 
with the Government, the 
committee, at the prompting 
of its senior Labour member. 
Dr John Gilbert, demanded 
to see the- full text of the 
papers. 

Dr Gilbert said that Mr 
Heseltine had made a serious 
charge that the committee 
was being misled in materia! 
respects on the instrectioos of 
ministers. 

The papers are 'he minute 
of October 4 from Mr Leos 
Brittan, the former Secretary 
of State for Trade and

not to the expulsions.

Mr Alan Dark, Minister 
for Trade, said at a press 
conference that the outlook 
for UK trade with the Soviet 
Union was given a boost by 
Mr Gorbachov's visit in 
December 1984. He set a 
target of a 40-50 per cent 
increase in trade turnover 
between the two countries. 


solution for the company was 
consistent with government 
policy. 

On Tuesday the committee 
was sent summaries of the 
two documents. Sir Brian 
Hayes, Permanent Secretary 
to the DTT, said in a letter 
that ministers did not think it 
“appropriate or in accordance 
with the normal conventions” 
to make the full documents 
available.

In a confident performance 
before the committee Mr 
Heseltine later directly con-

over a meeting of ministers 
which he said had been 
planned for December 13 

Mr Heseltine told the 
committee that if that meet-

would by now have been 
secure”. 

Bat he said: "We know

meeting- There is no doubt 
who is responsible for the 
position,”

Services announced last 
night. 

His decision to introduce 
legislation this parliamentaiy 
session to remove the historic 
Crown immunity enjoyed by 
hospitals follows ail-party 
Commons pressure in the 
wake of the Stanley Royd 
Hospital food poisoning trag- 
edy which claimed the lives 
of 1 9 patients. 

There have been 211 out- 
breaks of food poisoning in 
hospitals in the past six yeare 
affecting 3.969 people, of 
whom 279 died. 

A survey by the Institute of 
Environmental Health Offi- 
cers lest vear showed that 600 
out of i,000 NHS hospital 
kit: hens broke food health 
regulations and 97 of them 
would have been liable to 
prosecution, but for Crown 
immunity. 

Mr Fowler’s decision, 
which follows an urgent 
review after the publication 
last month of a highly critical 
report into the case of Stanley 
Royd Psychiatric Hospital in 
Wakefield, was immediately 
welcomed by Mr Richard 
Shepherd. Conservative MP 
for Aidridge-BrownhiUs. who 
has introduced a private 
members' Bill to scrap Crown 

immunity. 

He said it was “a real 
victory for com monsense 
since there was increasing 
evidence that protection from 
prosecution was not only 
against patients' interests but 
actuallv dangerous to their 
lives.”' The Government’s 
Bill is expected before Easier. 

In a written Commons 
answer to Mr Shepherd. Mr 
Fowler said the Government 

Peres vow 
to avenge 
terrorism 

From Ian Murray 
Jerusalem 

Mr Shimon Peres threat- 
ened yesterday to strike back 
hard if there were any 
terrorist attacks against Is- 
rael. 

The Israeli Prime Minister 
was speaking after Mr 
Ahmad Jabril, commander of 
the Popular Front for the 
Liberation of Palestine Gen- 
eral Command, had warned 
the public not to fly on 
American or Israeli aircraft. 

Mr Jabril told a news 
conference in Tripoli on 
Wednesday: "We cannot be 
responsible for what may 
happen to them. The Ameri- 
cans and Zionists have inau- 
gurated this new method. 
They can expect to reap the 
results." 

He was referring to Israel’s 
interception of an aircraft 
which it wrongly bejieved to 
be carrying Palestinian lead- 
ers who had been attending a 
radical conference in Tripoli. 

Mr Peres answered the 
threat in a speech to the 
Zionist Executive Council. 
"AH those who dare to strike 
at us must know that we will 
respond." he said. Security 
had to be Israel’s priority. 

He has admitted that the 
interception was “a mistake". 
Intelligence sources here now 
say iHere were three similar 
executive jets leaving for 
Syria, and one did have 
wanted Palestinian leaders on 


buildings, including hospitals, 
it had been government 
policy for many years that 
health authorities should be^ 
have as if they were covered 
by them. 

But the Government had 
decided that stronger safe- 
guards were needed to under- 
pin management effort and 
protect patients. . 

Private hospitals are al- 
ready liable to prosecution. 
In the case of NHS premises 
with unsatisfactory kitchens, 
local health authorities will 
face the prospect of court 
action. 

Mr Fowler said the pro- 
posed legislation would be 
coupled with tougher guid- 
ance to the health service on 
measures to ensure- high food 
hvgiene standards. 

The Government has de- 
cided to introduce its own 
Bill rather than support Mr 
Shepherd’s measure, which 
proposes doing away with 
Crown immunity at all gov- 
ernment premises. 

The move received a warm 
welcome from National Asso- 
ciation of Health Authorities 
which warned, however, that 
considerable extra funds 
would have to be spent to 
bring some hospital kitchens 
up to scratch.

Strike 
follows 
leak at 
N-plant 

By Peter Davenport 
and Pearce Wright 
Eight hundred construction 
workers ai the Sellafield 
nuclear reprocessing plant 
walked out on strike yester- 
day in protest at the handling 
of the escape of radioactive 
plutonium mist 
The men, who are part of 
the 4,000-strong workforce 
engaged in a £3,500 million 
expansion programme at the 
Cambrian plant, complained 
that they bad not been 
informed about the amber 
alert at the complex on 
, Wednesday. 

British Nuclear Fuels, who 
operate Sellafield. insisted 
they had informed union 
officials about the release and 
added that the protest was 
expected to end today. Bet 
the controversy surrounding 
tbe latest incident continued 
with calls from environmental 
groups for its operation to be 
closed down. 

Last night Sellafield was 
again reprocessing unclear 
waste. The building where tbe 
radioactive mist escaped from 
a faulty pump nnit, was also

An inquiry by the

experts from the Nndear

started. The inquiry, demand- 
ed by the Health and Safety 
Commission, will go beyond 
establishing the events lead- 
ing to the leak, and look 3t 
the wider management impli- 
cations at Sellafield. 

But a preliminary report 
from the safety inspectors 
concludes that "the leak has 
been well contained”.

Mountains 
of food ‘a 
timebomb 9 

By John Young 
Agriculture Correspondent 

The continued existence of 
Europe's food mountains rep- 
resented a “time bomb” 
which could blow up its 
agricultural policy, Mr Frans 
Andriessen, foe EEC Agricul- 
ture Commissioner, said yes- 
terday. 

In the dosing address to a 
conference in London, on foe 
day after foe European Com- 
mission announced its latest 
form price proposals, Mr 
Andriessen said it would be 
irresponsible to ignore the 
dangers. 

That was why foe Commis- 
sion proposed to begin this 
year its £1800 million pro- 
gramme to dispose of surplus 
stocks. 

“By any commercial stan- 
dards, foe way in which we 
accumulate and maintain 
such stocks is absurd,” he 
said. 

So, far from stabilising the 
market, they permanently 
destabilized it. “The longer 
we keep them, foe more 
expensive it becomes to 
dispose of them.” he told foe 
conference, organized by the 
magazine Agra Europe.

“They wanted me to do 
something which I thought 
was entirely improper”, Mr 
Bristow said. “They also said 
it was about time foal I got 
foe recognition I deserved for 
my services to British indus- 
try. I think it is quite 
immoral” 

Mr Bristow said that it was 
foe second offer he had 
received that day to buy out 
his shares. “The other 
camefrom an independent 
source. It also spoke of foe 
possibility of some public 
recognition, but did not 
include a seat on the board. I 
have had another snch offer 
since, but I will not say from 
whom.”

Rail in a £35 mQ&on deal 
announced yesterday- 
It wfll begin service in 1989 
on the newly electrified East 
Coast Line, first between 
London , and Leeds ami then 
between London and Edin- 
burgh by 1991, catting 10 
minutes off the 4 hoars and 
20 minutes journey time.' 

The order fin- 31 class 91

GEC Transportation Projects 
which will design and manu- 
facture the electric motors 
and control systems. 

Although the EJectra has a 
top speed of 140 mph, its 
speed on the East Coast ran 
is expected to be kept to 125 
mph to avoid extra fuel costs. 


Two jailed 
for part in 
bomb plot 


Y our invitation to a 


Radical and wide-ranging 
proposals to remove respon- 
sibility for the legal aid 
scheme in Scotland from the 
Law Society and the courts 
and place it with a new 


quango were published by the 
Government yesterday. 

The Legal Aid (Scotland) 
Bill proposes that in future 
the Scottish Legal Aid Board 
should take over responsibil- 
ity for handling all applica- 
tions for civil legal aid and 
other administrative func- 
tions now done by the Law 
Society of Scotland. 

It would also lake over tlw 
assessm ent of a person’s 
financial eligibility for civil 
legal aid, now handled by the 
Scottish Home and Health 
Department, and the bulk of 
criminal legal aid applica- 
tions. ■ 

The courts will retam 
responsibility for legal aid 
applications in the more 
serious criminal cases. 

In two particularly contro- 
versial proposals the Bill also 
outlines what is being seen as 
the first cash limit in a 
scheme which is supposed to 
be open-ended: legal aid’wOl

no longer be available for 
those who plead guilty in 
summary cases. 

It also suggests that the 
new board would have power 
to employ solicitors to do 
litigation under the legal aid 
scherae- 

Officials emphasized yes- 
terday that the measures were 
not aimed at cutting the cost 
of legal aid. 

"They are aimed at tidying 
up and streamlining a system 
which is currently adminis- 
tered across a number of 
bodies, and at ensuring the 
scheme is administered effi- 
ciently at minimum cost.” 

But the immediate reaction 
both from the Law Society of 
Scotland and that of England 
and Wales was concern that 
the proposals would result in 
a curtailing of the system. 

Last year it cost £38 
million. 

The Government has just 
announced a scrutiny of the 
legal aid scheme for England 
and Wales, now costing £320 
million a year. X^ CTe is 
concern that this, too, may 
result in a curtailment.

FA ticket curb on club 
must stay, judge rules 


MiDwall Football Club 
failed in its High Court 

attempt yesterday to lift the 
ail-ticket restriction imposed 
last year by the Football 
Association. The club 
claimed the move is costing 
it £ 100,000 at the turnstiles. 

Mr Justice Scott said the 
restriction imposed last De- 
cember came after senous 
trouble during the match 
with Leeds in November, and 
the dub was later cleared of 
responsibility at an FA inqui- 
ry. But the alt-ucket restric- 


tion was still in force and was 
costing it up to £10,000 a 
game.. 

The dub claimed the FA 
bad treated ft unfairly, mid 
acted unlawfully 
But the judge said Miihuall 
had failed to show an 
arguable case. It was within 
the powers of the FA to 
impose the restriction, and it 
must be binding on MillwalL 
The judge granted the club 
an order for ah urgent 
hearing of its action against 
the FA. 


Two men who took part in 
a “sinister and chilling” plot 
to bomb the home of a 
former Special Air Services 
Regiment officer were jailed 
for a total of 24 years at 
Manchester Crown Court 
yesterday. 

Mr Justice Mann said that 
the planned explosion at the 
Herefordshire home of Lieu- 
tenant Colonel Brian Baty 
had a political otgecL "It is 
unfortunately only too com- 
mon in present times and 
people must be deterred from 
attaining political ends in 
that way " 

Peter Jordan, aged 61. a 
retired teacher, of St Peter's 
Rise, Headley Park, Bristol, 
was sentenced to 14 years for 
conspiring to cause an explo- 
sion. 

William Grimes, aged 44. 
who is unemployed, of 
Cherryfield Road, Dublin, 
received two 10-year sen- 
tences for conspiracy and 
possessing explosives, to run 
concurrently. Jordan and 
Grimes admitted the charges. 

A third man. Peter Lynch, 
aged 46, unemployed, of 
Runcorn Road. Balsall 
Heath, Birmingham, who 
admitted failing to disclose 
information about an act of 
terrorism, was sentenced to 
400 days, which the judge 
said would mean bis iramedi- 
1 ate release after spending 13 
months in jail awaiting triaL 
. The judge told Mr Rhys 
Davies, QC for the prosecu- 
tion: "1 would like to express 
the court's appreciation that 
but for the work of the police 
on- Merseyside and in Lon- 
don, a greater catastrophe 
would have occurred." 

• West Midlands Police said 
yesterday that a stone had 
been thrown through a win- 
dow at the Birmingham 
home of Dr Maire O'Shea, 
who was acquitted on 
Wednesday of all charges 
relating to the bomb plot.

The Philippines election 

Showdown for Marcos 
and Aquino as 
troops go on red alert 

The PhifinrMn*. , From David Watts. Manila 

polls todav KiSL^SSJ 0 ^ him of gunboat diplomacy, the capital first and provided 
JS^J or to w« the Senator exolainah “Om- a yardstick for the subsequent 


S“ “ the “““y’ 5 

Throughout the country 
uie feeling of a turning point 
is almost palpable, whoever 
turns out to be the winner. 

In normal times Manila is 
a city of rumours, but these 
are not normal times and the 
harvest of speculation and 
table is richer than ever. 

An air of foreboding has 
been heightened by an inter- 
view which President Marcos 
gave to local television jour- 
nalists last night He said the 
Government would use “le- 
gitimate force to defend 
itself* if it continued to face 
threats of violence and vote- 
buying by the Opposition. 

On the best evidence both 
chaises appear to be figments 
of the presidential imagina- 
tion. 

None the less, with 51 
■ people already killed during 
the campaign, with few areas 
free o f the threat of violence 
from gun-toting political pri- 
vate armies, the Philippines 
armed forces are on red alert. 

In this atmosphere. Senator 
Richard Lugar, chairman of 
the US Senate foreign rela- 
tions committee, who is 
leading an observation team 
appointed by President Rea- 
gan. began its woric yesterday. 

Though greeted by a news- 
paper advertisement accusing 


From David Watts. Manila 
him of gunboat diplomacy, 
the Senator explained: “Our 
mission is not' to . judge,, 
enforce or arbitrate— simply 
to observe the work of good 
friends." He appealed to all 
involved to make sure that 
the Citizens’ Movement for 
Free Elections (Namfiri) ob- 
tains . results as quickly as 
possible so that “all of us wfl] 
know as rapidly as possible 
what has occurred". 

His group is just part of the 
60 Or so foreign observers of 
the election, who include Mr 
John Hulme, the SDLP MP 
from Northern Ireland. 

With thousands of local 
officials and politicians de- 
pendent on the continuation, 
of Mr Marcos in power, the 
25.000 Namfrel volunteers 
have a formidable task in 
trying to ensure an honest 
election. In Manila alone 600 
nims will, be deployed at 
polling stations in the hope 
that their presence will deter 
the use of forced 

Much wiD depend on the 
honesty and goodwill of 
Government officials from 
the Commission on Elec- 
tions. Before each return is 
reported to Manila it must be 
verified and co-signed by 
both Namfrel and the Com- 
mission representative. 
Namfrel succeeded in fore- 
stalling many frauds in the 
1984 election because its 
more honest , reports reached 


the capital first and provided 
a yardstick for the subsequent 
.Government version. 

Mr Joe Concepcion, the 
Namfrel chairman, is under 
no illusion that crucial con- 
cessions have had to be 
made, but “if I had not done 
this they would have discred- 
ited us completely". 

General Fidel Ramos, 
commander-in-chief of the 
Philippines constabulary and 
the integrated national police 
force, said that of the 74 
provinces only nine were not 
designated as “hot spots" 
where the potential for vio- 
lence and electoral fraud was 
high. 

He said: “At no time in 
our history has a national 
decision-making process been 
so vital.” Genera] Ramos 
knows that whichever way 
the election goes the potential 
for upheaval has never been 
greater. 

If Mr Marcos loses be may 
not go quietly. There are 
rumours of a yacht waiting in 
Hong Kong if he should find 
Mm Corazon Aquino has an 
un surmountable plurality, 
but few believe he would take 
that option. 

Yet if Mr Marcos wins, 
many people will not be 
inclined to believe h. The full 
results may not be known for 
a week, with a consequent 
dangerous spell of 
uncenainity and frustration. 


Spanish 
admiral 
murdered 
in street 

From Richard Wigg 
Madrid 

Vice-Admiral Cristobal Co- 
lon, a direct descendant of 
Christopher Cotnmtas, was 
assassinated in a grenade 
attack on his car in Madrid 
yesterday as be was being 
driven to Spanish natal 
headquarters. 

His driver, Senor Miguel 
Trigo -Manat, was also killed, 
and an aide with him in the 
car. Major Antonio Rodriguez 
Nufez, ns seriously figured. 

Eye-witnesses said that n 
young couple — immediately 
suspected of belonging to 
ETA. the armed Basque 
separatist organization — fled 
after throwing the grenade' 
and machine-gunning the. 
admirers car. 

Crowds gathered near the 
site, chanting: “We want goes 
against ETA." King Juan 
Carlos sent his condolences 
to the family. 

Police chased a car along 
one of the capital's motor- 
ways into the old city centre 
ami surrounded a building 
where they thought one of the 
killers was biding. 

Admiral Cohn, aged 61, 
17th Duke of Veragrn, the 
title Spain's King bestowed 
on Col am bos for his discover- 
ies, and twice Grandee of 
Spain, was travelling from his

Austrian wine 
trade halved 
after scandal 

Vienna — Austrian wine 
exports fell by almost half 
last year after the discovery 
of the . anti-freeze agent 
diethylene-glycol in wines 
(Richard Bassett writes). 

A survey commissioned by 
the Society of Austrian Wine- 
growers and published yester- 
day shows that - Austria 
exported only 270,000 litres 
of wine in 1985, compared 
with 478.000 in 1984. 

Thirteen per cent fewer 
Austrians were drinking 
wine, and nearly a third of afi 
wholesalers admitted that 
their confidence ih the indus- 
try had been “ shattered",."

Earlier this week they

being driven out 
In several boms* combat, 
25 guerrillas and three police 
officers were killed. The total 


death toll in dashes in Canca 
over the last two weeks was 
believed to be more than 60. 

Ecuadorean troops took up 
positions along the frontier in 
an apparent attempt to cut off 
100 guerrillas reported to be 
trying to enter Colombia's 
Southern Narine department 
to join up with the force led 
by MI9. 

It was also reported that 
three British journalists had 
been detained in Popayan, 
capital of die Canca depart- 
ment, after a clandestine 
interview frith members of a 
French television team. 

The French were arrested 
in- similar circ um stances but 
later allowed to - leave the

A high-ranking US State 
Department official has been 
m Athens this week sounding 
out the Socialist Government 
on the prospects for a 
continued American military 
presence in Greece after the 
present bases agreement ex- 
pires in 1988. 

Mrs Rozanne Ridgway. 
Assistant Secretary of State 
for European affairs, told Mr 
Andreas Papandreou, the 
Greek Prime Minister, and 
his ministers yesterday of the 
urgency felt in Washington 
over the issue. 

Mr Georg? Shultz, the 
Secretary of State, who is due 
to visit Athens next month, 
has made it publicly dear 


From Mario Modhtno, Athens 
that he would lifee an early 
reply so that, if the bases 
remain, the United States can 
budget for the cost of their 
improvement or make ar- 
rangements for their transfer 
— probably to Turkey or 
Italy. 

Under existing arrange- 
ments, the Greek Govern- 
ment may in July, 1988, 
exercise an option to termi- 
nate the agreement and ask 
the United Slates to disman- 
tle the bases. 

These include a support 
base at Athens airport, a 
naval communications centre 
at Marathon and air and 
naval facilities in Snda Bay, 
Crete. . 


The Papandreou Govern- 
ment is ideologically commit- 
ted to removing all foreign 
bases from Greece. However, 
the Prime Minister refuses to 
commit himself publicly on 
whether he will exercise his 
option to remove the bases. 

Mr Papandreou is known 
to have reassured the Ameri- 
cans privately that the bases 
will stay- But he does not 
wish to be rushed 

The Americans want a 
firmer commitment now, and 
the possibility that either side 
should denounce the present 
agreement to initiate a new 
round of interminable negoti- 
ations as a way out has been 
aired. 


Museveni 
sticks to 
pledge on 
Cabinet 

From Richard Dowden . 

Kampala 

President Museveni ojT 
Uganda has fulfilled his 
pledge to form a broad-based 
Government by bringing 
members from all parties, 
regions, and religions into his 
Cabinet. 

Mr Paul Ssemogerere. the 
Democratic Party leader, re- 
tains his position as Minister 
for Internal Affairs, to which 
he was appointed by the 
Okello Administration last 
AugllSL 

The Democratic Party now 
has five seats in the Cabinet 
compared with six in the 
Okello Government. The 
Ugandan People's Congress, 
the party of former President 
Obote which was shattered in 
the July coup, has three 
members in the Cabinet. 

Surprisingly, Mr Museveni 
met Mr Paulo Muwanga, Dr 
O bote's vice-president, as 
pan of a Ugandan People's 
Congress delegation this week 
even though he had named 
him as being responsible for 
some of the atrocities com- 
mitted dunng the Obote 
period. Mr Muwanga was not 
given a Cabinet post. 

Fifteen of the 30 ministers 
named so far are from Mr 
Museveni's National Resis- 
tance Movement, but places 
have been found for the 
leaders of Fedemu and thg 
Uganda Freedom Movement 
two small guerrilla organizer 
lions which fought the Obote 
Government but were bigger 
rivals of the NRM. The 
National Resistance Army is 
disarming these guerrilla 
groups. 

The new Foreign Minister 
is Mr Ibrahim Mjkiibi. a 
career diplomat who served 
as ambassador to Moscow. 
Cairo, and Denmark before 
resigning in 1982 in protest at 
the Obote Administration's 
human rights record. 

The Cabinet is intended to 
be an interim one which will 
administer the country until 
a constitutional conference 
draws up a plan for elections. 

The north of the country is 
still held by forces of the 
previous government, and 
the NRA's advance seems to 
have halted, either to allow 
for negotiations or to enable 
more NRA forces to get to 
the front line. It is expected 
that troops loyal to Brigadier 
Basilio Okello. the former 
chief of staff, will make a 
stand.

images of the Earth and Mars, and to locate 
natural resources via satellite. Yet it was 
Hitachi's entry into this exciting new field 
that made high-accuracy imaging possible. 
In fess than ten years, Hitachi-developed 
systems reduced absolute location error to 
a world-record 80 metres. Then 30 metres. 
And the innovations had only just begun. 

You can see where with software 

Today, Hitachi's imaging skills are being 
applied in ever-widening variety. Remote- 
sensing satellite systems aid fisheries by 
detecting differences in ocean water tem- 
peratures and displaying likely fishing zones 
as colour-coded maps on CRT screens. 
Robots mounted on crawlers are able to 
move around and “see'' much like humans 
do through combinations of cameras and 
computers that can calculate distances 
to objects. 

tn fact, we are constantly coming up 
with innovations and new applications. Most 
recently: A method of probing the human 


body with X-ray computed tomography, 
then reconstructing the data obtained as 
three-dimensional colour images of internal 
organs, muscles and bones. 

The best of worlds is yet to come 

Our vision of the future includes computer- 
ized 3-D simulations of surgical operations, 
instant imaging of internal medical prob- 
lems. such as cancer and cardiovascular 
diseases. Three-dimensional charts of in- 
accessible terrain. Remote mapping of 
Venus, Saturn, Jupiter and the other planets 
of our solar system. And much, much more. 

We'd like you to share in the benefits 
of our scieniific research, covering the next 
generation of new materials, lasers and 
other electronic devices. For improved

We wouldn’t recommend this experi- 
ment for real, but it’s an interesting hypothesis 
nevertheless. Imagine it 

The salesman guides you into the 
driver’s seat. It feels reassuringly firm, yet so 
comfortable it could have been made 
specially for you. 

(In fact, it has an adjustable lumbar 
support and a 16-position height and raise 
adjustment) 

The door closes with an effortless dunk 

“ITS A MERCEDES.” 


Good guess, but the wrong one 

Somehow, you can sense the feeling of 
spaciousness inside the car. 

Your hands fall naturally onto the steering 
wheel, and your feet onto the pedals.

instantaneously, dying to a barely audible purr 

“A DAIMLER, PERHAPS?” 

Perhaps, yes. But actually, no. 

As you pull away from the kerb (don’t 
worry, the salesman gives you directions) you 
notice the lightness and precision of the 
power steering. 

You accelerate briskly through the gears, 
enjoying the smooth power of the engine. 

This car is no slouch.

Pik Botha foresees day 


ruling in South Africa 


Cape Town 


n 


President of South 
Afiica b the unavoidable and 
inevitable outcome of the 
negotiating process set in 
pin " 

nis speech opening the 1986 
parliamentary session last 
week, the South African 
5"**P“ Munster, Mr R.F. 

IHk Botha, said yesterday. 

He told a meeting of the 
roreign Correspondents’ As- 
sociation of Southern Africa, 
that he could not suggest a 
timetable for the process 
bwause blacks themselves 
aw not speak with one voice 
and represented a variety of 
points of view. Nor could 
there be any solution if 
minorities were left without 
any protection. 

“We are not in principle 
against the principle of one- 
man-one-vote,” he said. “We 
are against the principle if it 
means that it would put in' 
power a force, an entity, that 
will again dominate others to 
the extent where the others 
will rebel and start tlm 
conflict all over again.” 

Mr Botha was asked at this 
point whether he would serve 
under a black president. “If 
in terms of the structures to 
be jointly agreed upon (with 
black leaders), that (a black 
president) is made possible, 
how can I be (against it)?” he 
replied. “I cannot go and say 
that we are going to share 
power and then try to do it 
my way only. 

“In that power-sharing pro-

me make it dear — as soon as

EEC farm prices 
may be frozen 


From A Correspondent, Brussels 


Dissident 
‘expelled 
as a spy’ 


From Diana Geddes, Para 


The European Commission 
nas proposed a virtual freeze 
on next season's agricultural 
prices in an attempt to 
discourage further over-pro- 
duction. 

But the price package 
comes with a set of much 
tougher measures which, if 
approved by Community ag- 
riculture ministers in the 
spring, would hit British 
termers the hardest and put a 
heavy burden on European 
consumers and taxpayers. 

Under the scheme; - the 
shop price of butter -would- 
fefl by 1 p while the price of a 
pound of cheese would- rise' 
by 2p. The price of beef in- 
Britain and Ireland would 
rise by 3p or 4p a pound over 
the next two years as the 
special EEC subsidy benefit- 
ing consumers and termers is 
phased out. 

But the taxpayer would 
have to foot the bill for the 
surplus disposal scheme an- 
nounced along with the 
package by Mr Frans 
Andriessen, the Agriculture 
Commissioner — a £1.8 
billion scheme to sen the 
bulk of a £6 billion food 
mountain over three years. 

Mr Andriessen said be 
hoped 270,000 tonnes of 
ageing butter stocks and 
200,000 tonnes of frozen beef 
from EEC cold stores could 
be sold to non-EEC countries 
in 1986 alone. 

He described the surpluses, 
which now include more than 
1.1 million tonnes of butter 
and 750,000 tonnes of beet 
as a “time bomb” which will 
blow apart the common 
agriculture policy if not sold 
without disrupting the mar- 
ket. . . 

The Commissioner warned 
the cost of exporting the 
surpluses would force the 
Commission to demand an 


' extra £450 million for 1986, 
despite sayings it would 
realize by freezing prices and 
changing the rules of farm 
price support 

The Commission has pro- 
posed: A £3 JO levy per tonne 
on all cereals marketed, 
except for the first 25 tonne 
per termer; 5 per cent and 9 
per cent rals respectively in 
the prices of teed wheat and . 
feed barley; a price freeze 
applying only to bread-mak- 
ing wheat and malting bailey; 
and restrictions on the quan- 
tities sold to EEC stores by 
grain and beef farmers when 
market prices are unattrac- 
tive. 

• LONDON: Mr Simon - 
Gouriay, deputy president of 
the National Farmers Union, 
yesterday estimated that the 
proposed measures would rat 
term gate prices for wheat 
and barley by 12 and 15 per 
cent respectively (Our Agri- 
culture Correspondent 
writes). 

While he said he favoured 
an element of price restraint 
and acknowledged the need 
to place the cm ptosis on 
better quality grains, the 
proposed co-responsibility 
levy would be very difficult 
to administer and very easy 
to evade. 

Miss Ann Davison, of the' 
Consumers in the European 
Community Group, de- 
scribed the levy as a “bread 
tax” saying the price of

Jerusalem 


bread was already artificially 
high because of . levies on 


high because of levies on 
imported wheat. 

A conference in London 
this week was told that the 
cost of the common agricul- 
tural policy had risen in real 
terms by 7 per cent a year for 
the last 10 years and was at 
present equivalent to nearly 
£2 a day per family of four. 


Mr Anatoly Sbctoransky 
is to be released by tiie Soviet 
Union because he is a 
convicted spy and traitor and 
not because he is a Jewish 
dissident, according to Victor 
Louis, the Moscow4ased 
journalist. 

Mr Louis, often fed infor- 
mation the Soviet authorities 
want publicized in foe West, 
told tto Israeli newspaper 
Yedioi Ahromot • that Mr 
Sbctoransky was being ex- 
pelled rather than befog 
granted an exit visa. 

According to Mr Louis’s 
Soviet sources, the US want- 
ed . Dr Andrei Sakharov j 
included in the spy swap, but j 
this was rejected because he 
was not considered a spy . 

Mr Sbctoransky, however, 
was convicted if handing 
confidential documents to a 
correspondent of The New 
York Toms, fodudfag details 
of experiments into para- 
psychology, codes on secret 
Soviet post office boxes and ! 
addresses of scientific and I 
military installations. I 

“From our point of view 
Sbctoransky is a spy,” Mr 
Louis was told. “On foe basis 
of that, we are releasing him 
and not because he is a 
Jewish activist”. 

The journalist said Mr 
Sbctoransky was still not 
aware of his munmeaf re- 
lease. But it seems his wife, 
A vital, was told he was to be 
freed several days before 
rumours began to circulate — 
she left her Jerusalem home 
and went into hiding. 

The Israeli Government 
still says it has no official 
word on his release. 

Because he was convicted 
of spying for the United 
States, be may be flown 
directly there. 


France yesterday stepped 
up security throughout the 
capital and at airports and 
important rail stations across 
the country after bomb at- 
tacks in Paris in which 21 
people were injured. 

Rumours continued to cir- 
culate here yesterday linking 
the most recent attacks, 
together with two others in 
Paris department stores just 
before Christmas, to Middle 
East groups directly or indi- 
rectly involved in negotia*-' 
tions with the French 
Government to secure the 
release of four . French hos- 
tages in Lebanon in return 
for the release of Arab 
terrorists imprisoned in 
France. - 

The French Government is 
refusing to comment on who 
may have been responsible 
for the attacks. M Laurent 


Fabius, the Prime Minister, 
who called an emergency 
meeting yesterday morning of 
the four ministers most 
directly involved in the fight 
a gainst terrorism, said that 
the Government had re- 
ceived no demands is rela- 
tion to the French hostages in 
Lebanon. 

With the^jiench. general 
election, 'only five weeks 
awpyf the Opposition has 
-.been quick- to extract the 
maximum political capital 
out of the attacks. 

M Michel Poniatowski, the 
Interior Minister under Presi- 
dent Giscard (TEsteing, ac- 
cused President Mitterrand of

for terrorism in France be- 
cause of his decision to

Trial plea 
In Walesa 


case fails 


Senate blocks Husain 
$1.5bn arms package 


From Michael Bfoyon, Washington 


Warsaw (Renter) - Poland’s 
Supreme Court yesterday re- 
jected a plea by lawyers 
representing the Solidarity 
leader, Mr Lech Walesa, that 
a lower court should handle 
his forthcoming trial on 
charges of slandering offi- 
cials. 

Mr Walesa's lawyers had 
said that the trial should be 
held in a lower court because 
the gravity of his charges did 
not warrant a hearing by the 
higher, provincial court 

But the Supreme Court 
ruled that foe trial, on 
February 11, must be held in 
the Gdansk provincial court 
a court spokesman said. Mr 
Walesa is accused of slander- 
ing election officials by dis- 
puting official voting figures 

The Government has indi- 
cated charges against him 
could be dropped if be stated 
he bad not intended to 
defame election officials. 


The Reagan Administra- 
tion has postponed indefi- 
nitely its proposed Sl.S 

billion (£! billion) arms sale 
to Jordan after being told 
bluntly by the Senate foreign 
relations committee it would 
be rejected in the Senate. 

The decision was taken to 
prevent a bitter fight between 
Congress and the- While 
House and .save'King Husain 
from humiliation. Neverthe- 
less. the King is bound to feel 
slighted, especially after Ad- 
ministration assurances that 
it considered his arms re- 
quests legitimate. 

The Reagan Administra- 
tion insisted last October that 
the sale was “essential to 
create the conditions for a 
lasting Middle East peace.” 

But the Senate, with its 
large pro-Israeli majority, 
insisted that Jordan must 
take the initiative in opening 
direct talks with Israel before 
any arms deal could be 


considered. 

The Administration re- 
served the right to submit its 
proposal later, although it 
must give Congress 90 days’ 
notice. But the deal to all 
interns and purposes is now 
dead 

Jordan has given warning 
that it may now turn to the 
Soviet Union to buy weapons 
to fulfil its military needs. 
This would be seen here as a 
grave setback to relations 
between Washington and 
Amman. 

As originally proposed by 
the White House, the arms 
package included advanced 
F16 fighter planes and mobile 
Hawk air defence missiles, 
totalling $1.9 billion. The 
White House then withdrew 
the missiles. lowering the 
value to Sl.S billion. But 
more than 80 senators and 
270 members of the House of 
Representatives had pledged 
to oppose the package.

Asked by The Times about 
the .documents coming foe 
painting’s export from Spain 
dated 1983, Seitor Migiel 
Sastrustegm, Secretary-Gen- 
eral at the Cnftnre Ministry, 
observed: “If it says Ministry

because by 1977 all such

The signature over the 
rubber stamp, has not yet 
been deciphered and it is 
.midear whether it is forged. 

Senor Sastrostegui, detail- 
ing the procedure, said that 
for- a work of art such as 
Goya's painting to have been 
exported legally “at least” 
three accompanying _ official 
documents were required, -aD

MMstry’s director-general of 
fine arts after receiving the 
written approval of a special 
fine arts committee set ap to 
evalaate works of art more 
than 100 years old before 
they can leave the country. 

There was no such approv- 
al from the Ministry of 
Culture, he said categorically. 

The fife would then pass to 
the Economics and Finance 
Ministry. For a second autho- 
rization and thirdly there 
would have to be a separate 
signed declaration that the 
export was in order from 
Spanish Customs. 


It was disclosed that Ma- 
drid had engaged lawyers 
headed by Sir Matthew 
Farrer in London to advise it 
in foe case. Asked about Lord 
Wimbome's reported remarks 
that be was awaiting an offer 
for the Goya from the 
Spanish Government, SeSor 
Sastrostegui observed: 
“Those may be his words, but 
he goes on keeping that 
painting in Christie’s safe 
catalogue.” 

According to reports in 
Madrid, Senor Saorm, who 
handled foe export of the 
painting, is now in prison in 
Buenos Aires, feeing fraud 
charges relating to other 
matters. 


The panel has to give its 
final report to President 
Reagan within 120 days. It is 
being assisted by Nasa. 

Meanwhile, search crews 
working off Cape Canaveral 
are trying to identify a large 
metal object 1,100 feet under 
water which Nasa experts 
think might be a large section 
of the starboard booster 
rocket that flared irregularly 
before Challenger exploded. 

Recovery of the booster 
would be invaluable to the 
investigation because it is 
thought a flaw, perhaps in the 
seals between the rocket's 
fuel segments or at the point 
where the segments were 
joined, may have allowed a 
flame to leak ouL

of his general amnesty for 
political prisoners on coming

A man aged 27 had his left 
leg amputated yesterday be- 
cause of injuries received 
duritig the bombing of the 
FNAC sports shop in the 
Forum Des Halles, the largest 
shopping complex in Paris, 
on Wednesday evening. Five 
of foe eight others injured in 
the blast are still in hospital 
but were said yesterday to be 
in no danger. 

The attack followed two 
other Paris bomb attacks — 
one at the Gilbert Jeune book 
shop in the heart of the Latin 
Quarter on Tuesday evening, 
in which four people were 
injured; the other in the 
Galerie Claridge on the 
Champs-EIysees on Monday 
evening, in which eight peo- 
ple were injured. 


The opposition of the 
co mm ercial class Is a signifi- 
cant aspect of the unravelling 
of the Dnvalier regime. Last 
month, in a carefully worded 
letter, the Association des 
Industries dHaiti wrote to 
foe President saying it was 
impossible for businessmen to 
play a full role in “a climate 
of tension and fear”. Urging 
die introduction of democ- 
racy, the association said: “It 
is impossible for us to ignore 
the discontent tearing Haitian 
society apart.” 

While there can only be 
speculation about what is 
happenmg behind the walls of 
the presidential palace in 
Port-es-Prince, it is plain 
rimt the 34-year-oM President 
and his family and advisers 
are in some tarmoiL 

Greece, Spam and Switzer- 
land have announced their 
refusal of requests from the 
President for sanctuary. The 
spread of this news arid the 
idea that the President has 
considered making a run for 
ft are bound to be da m agi n g. 

He looks increasingly a 
prisoner in the palace where 
he has lived most of his life. 

Part of his unpopularity 
lies in the return to a position 
of great influence of Haiti's 
mixed-race elite, who are 
about 5 per cent of the six 

mill ion population. 

The President's father. 
Papa Doc Dnvalier. was 
initially popular because be 
wrested power for the black 
majori ty when be took over in 
1957. This strode an im- 
portant chord, a reminder of 
the country's birth when 
black slaves threw out their 
Ftench masters in 1804 and 
set up the world's first black 
republic. 

Jean-Clande Dnvalier’s 
marriage in 1980 to Michele 
Bennett, one iff the elite, was 
opposed in palace circles 
because it was felt that this 
would provide the mixed -race 
m inority with access to 
power, and a return to former 
prominence, undoing the 
work of Papa Doc.

ez faces uphill 
win backing 



Senor Felipe Gonzalez, the 
Spanish Prime Minister, now 
has little more than five 
weeks of uphill campaigning 

sefore him lo persuade a 
■najority of his fellow roun- 
rymen \o voie “Yes” 10 
ipain’s membership of Naio. 

Parliament approved a ref- 
•rendum on Wednesday 
light. and K^ng Juan Carlos 
•ndorsed it yesterday. 

The lines " of bank were 
irawn in the vote: 207 for, 
03 against. with the Basque 
nd Catalan regional ists ab- 
taining. Only the Commu- 
isis. who will now be 
ampaigning for a “No” vole, 
nd the tiny Centre Party of 
. ;e former Prime Minister, 
ehor Adolfo Suarez, which 
so wanted the referendum 
. at will be leaving supporters 
> make up their own minds, 
xed with the Socialists. 
The right-wing Opposition, 
hich really warns to go 
rtner than the G overtime Qt 
■d integrate Spain complete- 
into Nato's military struc- 
rcs. voted “No". declining 
nor Gonzalez's offer lo lay 
e basis of a future common 
fence policy for Spain. 
ley will campaign to induce 
pponers to abstain on 
arch 12. 

‘Many will be voting ‘Yes’ 


From Richard Wigg, Madrid 

who are against Nato and 
many will be voting ‘No' who 
are for Nato.” was the vivid 
summing up of (he debate by 
Sehor Miquel Roca, the 
Catalan leader, who con- 
fessed that he was still not 
sure what were the Prime 
Minister’s real motives for 
holding a referendum. 

Senor Gonzalez has often 
confessed tbai be has 



Senor Felipe Gonzalez: his 
motives doubted 

changed his mind about 
belonging to the Atlantic 
Alliance, and pleaded with 
the Spanish people to do 
likewise. He had to endure 
quotations from many of his 
past speeches against Nato, 
however, from Seiior Manuel 


Fraga, the opposition leader. 

But the Opposition no- 
where probed what lies be- 
hind the Government's three 
conditions: non-integration 
into Nato's military struc- 
ture; non-nuclear status for 
Spain; and a progressive 
reduction by the United 
States of its troops on 
Spanish soil. 

With Spain's Socialist lead- 
ership converted to Nato and 
the opposition long con- 
vinced of Spain’s need of it, 
but anxious now to inflict a 
humiliating defeat on Senor 
Gonzalez in a general elec- 
tion year, the whole debate 
had a confused air. 

It proved a relief to get 
away into Madrid's icy 
streets where anti-Nato dem- 
onstrators. overwhelmingly 
young people, at least were 
saying what they believed, 
however simpUstically. 

Almost everything has 
been left to the Spanish 
people to decide. La 
Vanguardia, the Barcelona 
daily newspaper, suggested 
even before the debate began 
that the best hope now is for 
the ordinary citizens to res- 
cue the politicians from the 
mess they have got them- 
selves into over Nato.

Hail of militia gunfire downs UN helicopter 

m. m - r* TWnxtn cowl hie haluvk 


Beirut (AP) - The Italian pilot of a 
UN helicopter brought down is 
sooth Lebanon said yesterday that a 
hail of militia gunfire forced him to 
make an emergency landing that set 
his craft on fire. 

It was the first time that Lebanese 
militia bad shot down a UN 
helicopter since the nine-nation UN 
Interim Force in Lebanon was sent 
on a peacekeeping mandate to South 
Lebanon in 1978. 

planes have been shot at by 
various militias in war-torn Lebanon 
many times in the past. But this is - 
the first time that gunfire forced a 


crash landing of a UN helicopter/ 
Uniffi spokesman Mr Timor Goksel 
said. 

Captain Dino Disanto said in 
South Lebanon’s port city of Sid on 
after his release yesterday that the 
helicopter’s engine, cockpit ami 
starter were riddled with bullets 
when be made the emergency 
landing in a valley east of the aty on 
Wednesday. 

Captain Disanto was speaking at 
the Sidon headquarters of the 
Islamic Coalition Movement, a 
fun damentalist Sunni Muslim fac- 
tion which claimed Us fighters shot 


down the UN craft by mistake. 

The group held the six crew and 
passengers of the helicopter for eight 
hours before turning them over to 
the LIN officials. An Islamic 
Coalition coautnniiqn£ said that the 
three Italian crewmen and three 
Scandinavian passengers were hand- 
ed over “safe and unbanned”. They 
said their men had mistaken the 
craft for a Sooth Lebanon Army 
helicopter. 

Mr Goksel said that the passen- 
gers were the Finnish chaplain of the 
F innis h battalion, its paymaster and 
the Swedish battalion postmaster. 


Captain Disanto said his helicop- 
ter was on a regular flight 1 mm 
Beirut to UnifQ'» headquarter at the 
Lebanese border town of Naqoura 
when it was lashed by a windstorm 
west of Sidon and forced to veer 

eastward 

The freed peacekeepers beaded 
overland to the L'zufiTs French 
battalion headquarters in Maarakeh, 
east of Lebanon’s southernmost dty 
of Tyre, where they spent the rest of 
the night after their release. They 
arrived for debriefing at Naqonra 
yesterday.

Pope’s visit to India 

Plea for dialogue 
with all faiths 


From Michael HamJyn, Goa 


The Pope yesterday re- 
newed his appeal for unity 
among Christian denomina- 
tions. while his siaff were ai 
the same time stressing that 
tiie sew emphasis in the 
jPope’s attitude was on di- 
alogue with non-Christian 
jreUgions 

{man, Mr Joaquin Navarro 
{Walls, pointed out as the 
(Pope was speaking that his 
{emphasis on dialogue with 
(the non-Christians was a new 
strategy. “It is 20 years since 
{the Second Vatican Council” 
$aid Mr Navarro. “And from 
hen we have been working 
>n ecumenism, on dialogue 
rith other Christian confes- 
sions - Anglicans, Lutherans, 
so on. That should 
[continue. 

“But the Holy Father feels 
[that this is not enough. What 
is needed now is a profound 
dialogue with all the faiths of 
the world, so that we can 
agree on the main issues of 
man and mankind.” 

The Pope, in the course of 
remarks made at a celebra- 
tion at Mangalore in the 
south Indian state of Kar- 
nataka, again urged Indians 
of faiths other than Christian 
to unite in dialogue. He said 
to representatives of Hindus, 
Muslims, Sikhs. Jains, Bud- 
dhists and Parsees that their 
presence meant that they 
recognized “the need for ail 
religious traditions to join 
hands against the forces 
which muitate against the 
luxnan and spiritual dignity 
>f human beings”. 

Earlier, at Goa, he con- 
itrated on the unity of 
istians, saying that the 
and present divisions 
tong them were “a scandal 
non-Christians, a glaring 
miradiciion of the will of 
st, a serious obstacle to 


the Church’s efforts to pro- 
claim the gospel." 

He said that the work of 
ecumenism demanded con- 
stant effort, and that it began 
with the “primary unity” that 
already existed because of 
baptism. 

“But we must be eager to 
work for the fullness of unity 
among the followers of 
Christ," he said at an early 
morning Mass on the banks 
of the River Mandovi. He 
praised the progress that had 
been achieved already. 

In fact. Goa was a slightly 
odd place at which to be 
preaching about Christian 
unity. It was the first place to 
be 'convened by Roman 
Catholic missionaries from 
Europe and. since the first of 
the Portuguese arrived in 
1300, has maintained a 
solidly Roman Catholic loy- 
alty. The Archbishop of Goa 
was created patriarch of all 
the east Indian churches in 
the last century, and the 
number of Protestants in the 
territory would scarcely fill a 
Methodist chapel. 

The Goan Catholics revere 
St Francis Xavier, the Jesuit 
missionary who arrived here 
in 1542 and whose mortal 
remains are in the Basilica of 
Dorn Jesus in Old Goa. They 
go on public view every 12 
years so that the faithful may 
marvel at the miraculous lack 
of corruption after 432 years. 

The Pope will meet Dr 
Robert Runcie, the Arch- 
bishop of Canterbury, who is 
also beginning a ‘tour of 
India, at the weekend in 
Bombay. 

When the Pope sent letters 
to the heads of other faiths 
inviting them to preach 
together on the peace of the 
world. Dr Runcie was the 
first to agree to come.

Out of Africa* starring Meryl 
Streep and Robert Redford. 
are front-runners for tbe 58th 
annual Oscar awards on 
March 24. Each picture has 
gathered 1 J nominations. 

However, Spielberg, even 
though he is me of the most 
successful directors in Holly- 
wood history, - has been over- 
looked personally, despite the 
inany nominations for his 
film. Based on Alice Walker's 
Pulitzer Prize- winning book, 
it has received nominations

Whoopi Goldberg}, best film 
and best supporting actress, 
as well as other technical

nominated for best film, best 
director (Sydney Pollack), 
brat actress (Meryl Streep, 
who has won two best actress 
trophies already), and best 
supporting actor, for Klaus 
Maria Brandaner. 

. Perhaps the most 
pgngmng race is shaping Qp 
m the best actress category. 
Streep feces Goldberg, Aim 
Bancroft as the Mother 
Superior In Agues of Cod* 
Jessica Lange as the Consatry 
and Western singer Patsy 
&***,}? Sm Dreams, and 
GeraMuie Page as the elderly 
m the low-budget 


Whoopi Goldberg; leading a 
cast of unknowns. 

WRhly acclaimed Trip to 
Bountiful. 

In tire best actor category 
®. e front-runner is Jack 
rtltfeobon, for his role as the

The drinks world is currendy ruled by 
international giants 

Ids a sobering thought that two thirds of 
the whisky sold around the world is not Scotch 
whisky. 

It is Canadian whisky. American whiskey. 
Even Japanese whisky. 


So if Britain is to compete in the future, 


strong measures are called for now. 


At Guinness, we believe the merger with 


Distillers will give Britain the strength it needs 


in the international arena 


Our new group will manage an arsenal of 
world famous brands 


And our combined strength will put us 


into the big league with the likes of Seagram 


and Suntory. 


But this merger is not just about muscle. 


It has a great deal to do with the special 


skills required to persuade new whisky drinkers 


in America, Japan and Europe to switch to 


Scotch whisky. 


At Guinness, we have proven flair for 


advertising and brand development. 


We will commit this talent to increasing 


sales worldwide. 


And increased sales mean new jobs 


Significandy, an increase in Distillers’ sales 


of Scotch whisky of just 2% could get a distillery 


in Scotland working again. 


Together, Distillers and Guinness will be 


good for exports 


Good for jobs. And good for Britain. 


We urge you to support our bid.

| While the rest of Britain sadly 
digested last week’s disclosure 
that unemployment had topped 
the 3.4 million mark for the first 
time, John Skipper could not 
resist a wry smile at the irony of 
it all. Mr" Skipper is personnel 
and training manager of a Sussex 
firm which employs 1.200 peo- 
ple. “1 could take on another 100 
if I could find them", he said.. 
And thereby hangs a tale. 

It is a laJe guaranteed to reduce 
the dispirited job hunters of 
Liverpool. T>neside. Scotland 
and South Wales to tears of 
impotent rage. Draw a circle of 
some dozen miles radius around 
Crawley and you identify - a 
region with a unique problem in 
present day industrial Britain: its 
unemployment figure is too low. 

Mr Skipper’s firm, Redifiusioa 
simulation, makes flight simu- 
ators for airline pilot training. It 
s one of scores of companies 
yased in Crawley and spawned 
>y nearby Gat wick Airport whose 
■xpansion plans are currently 
rustrated by a chronic lack of* 
nanpower. “Some of the va- 
■3ncies are for software tech- 
ticians of whom there is a 
lationa! shortage”, he admits, 
"but most are for the sort of 




The town of Crawley, looking 
east: Gatwiek airport, to the 
left of the picture, is the 
expanding gold mine that has 
brought job hooters rushing 
here by the thousand - only to 
find there is nowhere to live. 
Thirty thousand jobs could be. 
filled by 1990 if housing was 
available. But a three- 
bedroomed semi costs 
£50,000 and almost half the 
planning applications are re- 
fused—

raftsmen who would snap up an 
•PDominiiv like this anywhere 


begging in the next five years; 
that the existence of Gatwiek 
Airport is an incontrovertible 
fact: that commercial growth is 
inevitable and that it is far better 
to plan for it than to allow small 
towns and villages to be spoilt by 
piecemeal developments. A rigid 
adherence to Green Belt policies 
is. they say. at best insensitive 
and at worst immoral. 


•ppominily like this anywhere 
Ise in the country." 

Cynics would claim that this is 
•ne more example of a redun- 
!ant national workforce being 
nprepared to shed their roots 
nd go out in search of a pay 
ackeL They would be wrong, 
housands have made the pil- 
rimage to Crawley, undergone 
ie agonies of interview and the 
trill of selection, only to be 
onfronted by the cruel truth — 
terc is nowhere for them to live. 
Despite Gatwick's status as the 
Mirth busiest international air- 
on in the world and Crawley's 
< plosion into a new town of 

1.000 people, both are sur- 
junded by green and gracious 
juntrvside, sandwiched between 
ie noble scenery of the North 
id South Downs. 

The battle lines are drawn. Mid 
assex. an area of determined 
rnlilily whose arguments hith- 
10 have usually revolved 
ound the price of farmland and 
ie cost of a monthly season 
:ket to the City, is bracing itself 
•r a conflict which many believe 
ill prove to be the 
ivironment’s very own 
rmageddon. 

The industrial lobby claims 
at unless there is a last and 
rious housebuilding pro- 
amme. 30.000 new jobs will go 


"If we give in now we 
might as well pack 
in the Green Self 



longer-lived than Liverpool’s, 
Glasgow's or Newcastle’s. 

The arguments have, of course, 
a familiar ring. Many of them 
have been trotted out wherever a 
new airport is planned, a new 
road projected or a new town 
positioned. On two counts, how- 
ever. Gatwiek and its environs 
are dangerously different. First it 
is not a plan; it is already there. 
Second, the battle statistics are 
not comparative but superlative. 
The national unemployment fig- 
ure is the worst ever. At 5 per 
cent Crawley's unemployment 
level is the smallest of any town 
in Britain. The commercial 
growth potential of the Gatwiek 
area is greater than anywhere else 
in the country. 

There is another difference, 
too. Just for a change the 
environmentalists and the plan- 
ners are on the same side. 
Between October 1984 and 
September last year 45 per cent 
of all residential planning 
applications in central Sussex 
(the area around Crawley and 
Horsham) were turned down, 
compared with an average of 
only 26 per cent nationwide. And 
although the average number of 


Caledonian airline manager and 
chairman of Gatwiek 2000. 
"Anyone out of work has an 
abysmal environment, however 
many green fields there are 
around him. Firms here are 
capable of generating employ- 
ment and they are here because 
Gatwiek is here and their 
customers are here - it’s no use 
telling them to move to a 
depressed area. We don’t want to 
see a ribbon of houses all the way 
from Crawley to Horsham — that 
would be a mistake. All that's 
needed is to take one village and 
to build it up into a proper new 
community with all the necessary

enough that a lot of people in

say that they wouldn't be 
snapped up by commuters cur- 
rently paying even more than 
that for similar accommodation 
in Godalming or Leatherhead in

parts of Sussex 25 or 30 miles 
away which are crying out for 
development — with improved 
roads and communications peo- 
ple could live there and travel 
here to work.” 

In an area of fast rising house 
prices — they were up by 13 per 
cent last year and are expected to 
rise even more in I9S6 - estate 
agents say that they would have 
no difficulty in selling twice the 
stock currently available. At first 
sight, therefore, it was strange to 
find one of them, Mr David 
Spread bo rough, Crawley office 
manager of Turner, Rudge and 
Turner, siding with Sir Peter 
Hordern and “the greens".

shock of doing that move in the 
opposite direction.” 

Yet still the figures speak for 
themselves. On just one day in 
August, last year, the job centres 
of West Sussex had on their 
books 3,355 unfilled vacancies 
and there were another 3,(22 on 
the same day in south Surrey - 
the sort of statistics which would 
be unthinkable in most other 
parts of the country. 

Should parts of mid-Sussex's 
green and pleasant land be 
sacrificed to a national clamour 
for jobs or should the beauty 
surrounding such towns as 
Horsham, Haywards Heath and 
East Grinstead be protected for 
the fortunate people who already 
enjoy its company? Pul another 
way: is there a Solomon in the

Long before the first athletes 
leave their starting blocks in 
the 13th Commonwealth 
Games, which open in Edin- 
burgh on July 24, the 
organizers will have com- 
pleted their own gruelling 
private marathon. 

The games will be the 
biggest the Commonwealth 
has held and the first to be 
staged without any financial 
lifeline from the Government. 
A minimum £!0m has to be 
raised from sponsors but with 
five months to go. and after 
four years of planning, con- 
tracts worth only £5J5m have 
been signed. The consortium 
selling the event as a promo- 
tional package to industry 
and commerce remains ‘'per- 
fectly confident" ibat the 
funds are in the pipeline with 
a good chance of reaching the 
original target of £l2m. 

Maurice Griffiths, director 
of the consortium, said that 
sponsors often waited on til 
the lost moment before 
clinching a deal. -What we 
are offering is a worldwide 
television audience of 1.000 
million. the outside 
broadcasting event of the year 
and the most intensive media 
coverage", he said. 

Even so there have been 
several nerve-racking mo- 
ments: an event on which so 
much public artentioo is 
focused may be useful for 
promoting a company but it 
can also be used to promote a 
cause. Protests against apart- 
heid that led to the blacking 
of television coverage of (he 
Dairy Crest Games in the citv 
might have damaged the 
attraction to sponsors of 
linking their product to a 
sport. 


KHO*2ni 


But the organizers see 
nothing before the opening of 
the games that is likely to 
cause any protests. Mr 
Kenneth Bnrthwick. chairman 
of the organizing committee, 
said: “Ail the Commonwealth 
countries know where we 
stand- on apartheid and that 
we are doing everything 
possible to keep pace with the 
Gieneagles agreement. We 
aiso realize that so much is 
beyond onr control." 


About one quarter or the 30 
companies and organizations 
sponsoring the games are 
Scottish, the largest being the 
Distillers Company which 
has signed a £ 1.35m contract 
that will be unaffected by its 
current takeover situation. 
The consortium expects that 
half the sponsors will prove 
to be multi-national compa- 
nies and a marketing drive is 
about to start in south-east 
England to advise businesses 
of the advertising coverage 
still available. 

“We reckon there will be 
121) hours of television in 
Australia and New Zealand 
and 90 hours in Canada 
devoted to tbe games. We are 
negotiating for a leading 
cable company to relay them 


across nearly half the United 
Slates". Griffiths said. 

Two tiers of advertising 
hoardings will stand unavoid- 
ably in the sweep of the 
television cameras at 
Meadow bank and the other 
sporting venues and advertis- 
ing banners will line the 
marathon route. Luxurious 
hospitality suites costing up 
to £30.000 each overlook the 
Meadowbank track ami most 
hare been taken. Sports still 
seeking a sponsor are boxing, 
shooting and cycling plus two 
days each of swimming and 
bowling events. 

The games will bring a 
bonanza to the city of 
Edinburgh with an estimated 
two million visitors during tbe 
10 days of competition. The 
Edinburgh International 
Festival with its tattoo and 
fringe follow a week later, 
maintaining the momentum. 

To date 50 of the 58 
Commonwealth countries 
hare accepted the invitation 
to take pan and about 2,900 
athletes will compete in the 
largest and most repre- 
sentative games ever- Along- 
side tbe athletics nil! be a 
Commonwealth cultural festi- 
val centred on the Princes 
Street Gardens. Each country 
taking pan will contribute 
with its national music, dance 
or arts. 

“It does mean a great deal 
to the city", said Kenneth 
Bonhwick. a former Lord 
Provost and long-serving dis- 
trict councillor. “I was in- 
volved when Edinburgh last 


hosted the games in 1970 for 
which Meadowbank stadium 
and the commonwealth swim- 
ming pool were built. There , 
were terrible rows, about I 
spending so ranch on what 
some were convinced would 
be a couple of white ele- 
phants. They were wrong. 
Not only have they been 
enormously popular and a 
catalyst to the interest in 
sport that sprang from those 
games but they are now 
proving a valuable legacy." 

The 400 volunteers on 37 
committees organizing tbe 
games are non praying for a 
fine summer, a calm political 
climate and an outbreak of 
generous Interest among 
sponsors in south-east En-

The self serving anecdotes, pulling 
of faces and touching of kwi^ 

• expected by chat show hosts (or 
“television vivacities’’, as Gore 
Vidal calls them) and their audi- 
ences of sing-a-long coach parties is 
one reason why Maggie Smith 
avoids prime time television inter- 
views. 

“It's come to the point where 
you're a standnip comic, because I 
don't think anybody can handle it 
unless they’re screechingly funny. 
You know”, she snips her fingers, 
“one-liners and being camp with 
Teny Wogan. 

“1 can’t do that. Fd die of 
embarrassment so I don't go near it 
I hate all those kind of things** 
Dressed for a pre-show workout in a 
black leotard embroidered with a 
silver star, Maggie Smith looked as 
if she were about to join Steed in yet 
another revival of The Avengers. A 
‘j,poor performance (her opinion) 

* earlier that week as Nadia in Ronald 
Harwood's Interpreters at Queen’s 
Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue; was 
blamed on the debilitating effects of 
antibiotics prescribed 'for n heavy 
cold. 

Next month a lavish film version 
of EM. Forster’s comedy of man- J 
ners, A Room With A View, co- 
starring Maggie Smith as Charlotte 
Bartlett, receives its Cambridge 
premiere. 

“One doesn't always fell in love 
with whom one intends — and when 
one does, there’s no certainty that 
anybody else will approve”, is one 
blurb writer’s soapy exposition to 
the media of EM. Forster's comedy 
of manners. 

During . filming on location _ in 
Italy, she says, it was “either raining 
and impossible to shoot or 105 
^degrees with people feinting". 

Smith found Charlotte Bartlett “a 
very irritating woman. I t hink she 
was based on an aunt of Forster’s 
whom he didn’t like”. Chaperone to 
Lucy (Helena Bonham-Carter), 
“Charlotte is one of those people 


Maggie Smith, who stars in a new film version 
- of A Room with a View, talks about her 
current stage role and why she hates chat shows 


who is always driving others mad by 
saying; T don’t want to be any 
trouble’. They’re forever trying to 
keep themselves out of the way and 
are thereby permanently in the way 
by rushing about Still, she fern 
deep remorse in the end — at least 
that's what happens in foe film — 
and saves foe day”. 

Maggie Smith lias been described 
as difficult because of her refusal to 
give interviews on set confining 
them to foe postHsbooting period. 
“That probably goes back to Brodie, 
the only film to date in which 1 was 
involved in every frame and 
therefore your concentration has to 
be fairly bright Quite frankly, Judi 
Dench and I sat around in Florence 
so long f or A Room With A View we 
would have talked to anybody about 
anything. I mean if you're doing 
something very difficult you can’t 
take time out to go to the caravan 
and talk about your divorce — which 
is all they want to know about It 
seems to me fetuous”. 

M aggie Smith has won 
Oscars for The Prime of 
Miss Jean Brodie and 
California Suite. In 1981 
she returned to Britain after four 
years in Canada because “foe boys 
(her two sons) were kind of muddled 
as to whether they should be playing 
ice hbckey or cricket”. She played 
parts- at the Festival Theatre, 
Stratford, Ontario, which she feds 
she would not have been offered in 
Britain. 

In 1975 foe was divorced from 
Robert Stephens and, foe same year, 
mamed script writer Beverly Cross, a 
sweetheart of younger days. They 
have a country retreat in West Sussex 
which she visits “on Saturday nights, 


Sunday meanings ... but the prob- 
lem of where to live only occurred 
now with Interpreters. I am looking 
for a flat in London, a permanent 


Interpreters marks the return of the 
well made comedy and well turned 
phrase. Nadia doesn’t fancy three 
days of sexual athletics with Viktor 
(Edward Fox) — “as if it were an oil 
change” — only to be rejected again. 
Comprising the usual staples of hu- 
mour, sex and foreigners. Interpreters 
affords an opportunity for Russian to 
be spoken on an English stage: Not 
aQ of it was written with detente in 

mind. 

Maggie Smith’s comic style of “wry 
astringency” (Michael Billington’s 
phrase) is allowed full reign in the 
role of nearly jaded innocence. “I was 
fascinated by the idea of Interpreters 
which I had never seen before. I 
mean, there are not many parts for 
women, as you may have observed, 
in this day and age. 

“What I like about Interpreters is 
that Fm not in foe shadow of other 
people, as, say in the classics, which 
have been performed by many others 
before you”. 

Were there more opportunities for 
middle aged actresses in film? “I 
think it's getting easier. I presume 
Joan Collins has hacked her way into 
a new world for us alL You’re not 
totally written off when you get older 
as happened before. 1 think what foe 
does is marvellous. It's sort of high 
camp . . . wonderful”. 

She once said that comedy acting — 
for which she is most renowned 
despite lauded performances of Lady 
Macbeth, Cleopatra and Desdemona 
— required an ability to see foe 
world in a slightly distorted light, 
“always being aware of the absurd 


other side to any serious or tragic 
event”. 

“By that I mean, in tragedy there 
are many areas that could be comic. 
If you're playing a serious pan and 
you have a comic slant in your head, 
you can see what is funny and so 
you tread carefully to avoid that 
area. If 1 were just a straight actress I 
think h would be very odd because 1 
wouldn’t know where those danger- 
ous areas were”. 

Did an absurdist’s vision extend 
to reality? “Would that it did! One 
would have a much easier life. Life 
just always seems to be rather hard*. 

D id she do modi research 
for a role? “Sure, if there's 
a lot to do. Films arc 
different because you have 
a different text from foe original on 
foe whole. Plays, yes ... I could still 
be playing Virginia Woolf. The 
possibilities are limitless except she 
made me desperately glum; midging 
every night into the ooze, stones in 
your got Woolf was mad so I had to 
go mad and that was unnerving.” 

Did she draw on personal experi- 
ence for characterisation? “Experi- 
ences are filed away but you don't 
have a button that you can press 
and say; I'll think of my mother 
dying and that will make me fed 
sad. Everything that happens in life 
is of use to you as an actress — I 
suppose that sounds very Cbekovi- 
an. 

“I don’t think anybody has a 
special knowledge of acting. I don't 
1 don't think it's a thing you can an- 
alyse. Instinct is the truest way — the 
way I do it There’s no handbook on 
acting, no DIY". 

“I suppose one should appear on 
TV more often. TV creates a name 
much more quickly and that gets 
people into a theatre. 

“Acting. It's a dumb thing to do 
but it's fascinating .**

Protecting the baby from 
a mother with herpes 



One important 
concern for 
pregnant women 
who bare a his- 
tory of genital 
herpes, and for 
the doctors who 
attend them, is foe possibility 
that foe viral infection may 
be passed on to foe baby as it 
is born. If the mother is 
saffering from an attack of 
herpes as she goes into 
labour, and foe baby conies 
rate contact with the liras 
through sores in foe birth 
canal, the chOd could then 
become ill - sometimes seri- 
ously. 

Current routine practice is 
to offer a woman in this 
position a Caesarean section 
and so minimize the risk to 
the child. Research from foe 
United States suggests, how- 
ever, that if the Caesarean 
section is done four or more 
hours after (be mother's 
waters have broken it pro- 
vides Btde protection for foe 
infant. The Caesarean, with 
all its disadvantages, is there- 
fore often needlessly per- 
formed. 

At Doncaster Royal In- 
firmary, Dr Tim Moss, 
consultant m genito-orinary 
medicine, has been investigat- 
ing with his colleagnes the 
nse of the anti-herpes drug 
acyclovir as a way out of this 

rlltorwM. 

Their studies have shown 
that when acyclovir is given 
to an expectant mother it 
crosses the placenta to the 
baby and does not do the 
baby any harm. They hope 
that, by giving the drug 
daring labour to mothers 
whose waters have broken 
four or more hours earlier, 
they w3J be able to protect 
the baby safely from herpes 
infection and yet still allow a 
normal vaginal delivery to 
take place. 

Indeed, in the small num- 
ber of instances where this 
approach has been tried, 
healthy babies have been 
delivered. 

Dr Moss stresses that 
acydovir would only be used 
when it was too late to offer a 
Caesarean and that more 
studies are needed before it 
will be passible to say if the 
treatment is of value or doL 
But he added; “We hope that 
ft wOl be a safe alternative to 
section in those women who 
go into labour unexpectedly.”

How tea could 
beakiller 

Take care if you 
like to drink 
scalding tea 
without milk. A 
report from the 
IS, in the Jour- 
nal of the Na- 
tional • Cancer Institute , 
claims that the high rate of 
cancer of the throat found in 
Uruguay, especially among 
women, may be due to their 
predilection for mat* tea. 

- This is an infusion of lies 
paregttamensis, and the hotter 
it is drunk foe better. In other 
parts of the globe where there 
are high rates of cancer of the 
throat - including Iran and 
China - hot tea is also the or- 
der of the day. 

Deafness: it’s in 
the blood 


from restful, although psychi- 
atric wards were quite peace- 
ful. To give some idea of how 
noisy these wards m ere. a 
whisper measures 20dB(A ) — 
filtered decibels - light traffic 
comes in at 4SdB(A) and a 
telephone rings at 60dB(A). 

Noise levels recommended for 
hospital wards in the United 
States are less than 45dB(.4 ) 
during the day and 3SdB(A) 
during the night. 

Readings were taken be- 
tween Il.SOpm and 6.30am 
in 14 wards. In the half dozen 
general medical wards the 
noise level was above SOdB(A) 
for at least a quarter of the 
time and. on one ward, for SO 
per cent of the night. 

The average for the acute 
wards war more than three 
and a half hours a night and 
only the four psychiatric 
wards exposed patients to less 
than half an hour’s distur- 
bance. Because noise is mea- 
sured on a sliding scale the 
general medical and acme 
wards are about 10 times 
noisier than the level recom- 
mended in the States. 

Despite the racket, less than 
10 per cent of patients 
believed that the noise dis- 
turbed their sleep, although 
staff admitted that it might 
wake as many as 40 per cent 
of patients. 

However, a considerable 
amount of the clamour could 
easily be reduced. Trolleys 
and taps, say the authors, 
should be mended immedi- 
ately they become faulty, 
noisy patients should be

A Mood disorder

deafness, re- 
search at 
Glasgow’s Royal

Council Institwe of 
Hearing Research suggests. 
The discovers could mean it 
will eventually be possible to 
treat and prevent the problem. 

Sensineural deafness affects 
12 per cent of adults and 
occurs when cells in the inner 
car (known as hair cells), 
which translate sound from a 
vibration into a nerve im- 
pulse. cease to function. Until 
now there have been few dues 
to its cause although evidence 
from animal work has sug- 
gested that poor blood supply 
to the hair cells may be to 
blame. 

Now, in a study of 140 
people. Dr George Browning 
and his colleagues have 
discovered that sensineural 
deafness is linked to the

Ninewells hospital and medi- 
cal school, Dundee, set out to 
discover just how noisy dif 
ferent wards are. Their find- 
ings are published in the 
current issue of the British 
Medical Journal. 

They found that general 
medical wards and acute 
admission wards were far

to prescribe it for strictly 
jical problems — 
example, a woman who 
has irregular periods. 

Initially the Pill was made 
illegal because of the fears of 
side effects, although now it 
seems that doctors who run 
abortion clinics are particu- 
larly vociferous when (here 
are moves to legalize and 
widen its prescribing. 

What is particularly worry-

be prescribed on medical

are plenty of women, with

found that people with 
sensineural deafness tend to 
have red Mood cells that are 
stiffer than usual. They think 
this could mean that the red 
cells, and hence oxygen, are 
not gening through the tiny 
Mood vessels of the inner ear 
to keep the hair cells alive. 

Red cell stiffness ■ may be 
caused by something else, the 
researchers say in a recent

defect they may soon tackle 
this important cause of hear-

The museum

fom women’s art is so^fhow 
different, perhaps 
ferior. “Fve always 


against isolating men's art 
and women’s art" declared 
the sculptress MarisoL, who 
happens at the moment to 
have pieces on display at 
several major museums. “It 
doesn’t make any sense to me 
because it should an be 
together. Art is an idea." 

Women’s contributions to 
art throughout history were 
restricted primarily because 
women were kept out of art 
schooL The Royal Academy 
of Arts in Paris had a quota 
system which admitted only 
four female students. Even 
those who got there were 
rarely allowed into the life 
class. For centuries, women 
were largely restricted to 
china painting or dainty 
water-colours. Many anony- 
mously assisted their lathers, 
brothers, husbands or lovers, 
but never got the credit A 
few, angry and frustrated, 
adopted men’s names. 

It still happens. Hflda 
Greene has been using foe 
name H. Clinton Greene for 
the past 12 years, ever since a 
critic observed of .her wort 
“Pretty good for a woman”. 
Much of the art wild 
continues to find it difficult 
to peat women as seriously 
as men. And that prindpstily, 
is why Mrs Holladay decuted 
to campaign for a specialized, 
museum. 

She says there have been 
many good female painters 
from the Renaissance on, but 
there were not enough female 
wrjiexs and historians to 

record them. “The men wrote 

about whai they knew best - 
they probably drank and.

WHhdmina Holbday 


record the contributions of 
women, so we have been able 
to do research. We have 
found out that in almost 
every era women were pawn- 
ing very successfully,” 

Although artistic ability , 
knows no sexual barrier, Mrs 
Holbday,, detects a tendency 
of women artists of the past 
to choose particular subject 
matters. “Because women 
were, limited in their activ- 
ities the subject matter 
tended to consist of portraits 
of children, flowers or things 
that they could assemble 
before them.” 

Even today, she thinks 
there may be examples of 
such a. tendency. Shepointed 
out a painting by Elizabeth 
er, Scodahd*s lead- 


Bigjckadde 


ing contemporary woman 
artist, entitled “Games En- 
joyed By Children”, depicting 
a dish of ice cream, a rattle 
'and other children's items. 
“Maybe a man would not 
have picked' this gentle sub- 
ject hut Fm not at all sure he 
wouldn't. Art is art It doesn't 
matter whether a man does H 
or a woman does it” 

The purpose of the mu- 
seum, she insisted, was not to 
separate men's and women’s 
art “but to heighten aware- 
ness and establish some of 
foe great women artists 
throughout history, so they 
will be taken more seriously 
and included in great collec- 
tions. No museum in the 
world will buy a work of art 
unless the artist is established 


and wefl known. Did you 
know that women artists 
were left oat of all American 
textbooks? Totally.” 

It was that discovery that 
set the ball rolling. She and 
her husband Wallace, a 
business tycoon, discovered 
the works of Clara Peelers, a 
17th-century Flemish still-life 

painter, during a visit to foe 

National Museum of Austria 

20 years ago. “When I looked 
her up in foe standard art 
text, H.W. Janson's History 
qf Art. I found that not only 
was she not listed, but no 
woman was included, not 
even Mary Cassatt. But in the 
1 6th edition, in 1985, women 
finally are in c luded.” 

Artistic ability 
knows no 
sexual barrier 

The Holladay collection to- 
day includes works by Cas- 
satt, Helen Frankenfoaler, 
Angelica Kauffmann, Alice 
NeeL Georgia O’Keeffe, 
Elizabeth Sirani and 
Elisabeth Vigfie-Lebrun. 

In about four years the 
museum has raised more 
than SIO million of its $30 
million goal, acquired 20,000 
members paying $20 or 
more, and 229 founders who 
have contributed $5.000 1 
apiece. Corporations have 
given ‘ generously. 

Already, demand fori 
women's art has increased. 
“Paintings are going for more 1 
at auction, they are harder to 
collect” Mrs Holladay de- 
clared- “Dealers are acquiring i 
stock because they think j 
prices will go up when the 
museum opens. As we make 
these artists established and 
well known, their prices will 
go up, They're already going j 
up. Aren't we fortunate that 
we bought when we did?”

Edward Heath and the other

selling BL to the Americans 
asks;“Whai is this fatalism, this 
despair about British industry?" I 
think I have the answer. Yes- 
terday a group of Tory MPs were 
bussed up to Coventry by BL to 
inspect the wonders of its works. 
What kind of bus were they 
traveling in? You guessed it a 
Volvo. Yesterday Mrs Jean 
Denton, the BL director who 
organized the trip, admitted the 
Volvo was “better' equipped" 
than the Leyland buses for their 
needs. The Volvo bus was bigger 
“If we had used Leyland we 
would have needed two 
buses ... I knew I was walking a 
tightrope at the time." 

Old story 

Talking of British Leyland. a 
reader sends me a copy of the 
Daily Mirror. of January 29. 1936, 
which features an advertisment 
for a Morris Eight. Under the 
pricelist (two-seater £118. four- 
door saloon £142. 10d) is the 
banner: "If you don't buy Morris i 
at least buy a car made in the 
United Kingdom." 

Bad form 

It’s official: under a Tory 
government it doesn't pay to live 
too long: A recently bereaved 
friend has jusi been sent a form 
from the ever-caring DHSS 
which reads: "Death grant is not 
payable on death of a man bom 
before 5 July 1883 or a woman 
bom before 5 July 1888.”

One of the Unionist protestors 
now constantly dogging King's

The government's proposal to 
sell off Britain's water industry is 
not only the biggest privatisation 
exercise so far — its assets are 
valued at £27 billion, compared 
with British Telecom's £4 billion 
- but for the first lime involves 
monopoly supply of a basic 
necessity of life. 

Ninety-nine per cent of British 
households (the highest propor- 
tion in the world) have mains 
water, compared with 77 percent 
with piped gas and 76.5 per cent 
with a telephone. 

Last February the Prime Min- 
ister told the' Commons that 
“water authorities are natural 
monopolies for many of their 
fonciions and we need to be 
particularly careful when consid- 
ering replacing a public monop- 
oly by a private one.” She may 
come'io wish she had heeded her 
own advice. 

Apart from the likely outcry 
when the public folly appreciates 
the loss of accountability, the 
whole plan might collapse simply 
because thorough investigation of 
the slate of the industry could 
deter potential buyers. 

The North-West Water Auth- 
ority has admitted to "a legacy - of 
pollution, dereliction, and consis- 
tent under-spending over many 


years.” Fifteen per cent of the 
nation’s sewage system is more 
than 100 years old: each year 
there are 500 sewer collapses. 
The deteriorating pipework and 
sewers have been described by- 
workers in the industry as “a 
time bomb.” 

There is also colossal waste; a 
third of the clean water entering 
the system never reaches tire taps 
because of leakage on the way. 

The 10 water authorities cre- 
*. n 1973 are themselves 
divided. Recently the North- 
West Authority spell out what is 
distinctive about the industry: 

• it has a natural monopoly of 
the services provided. 

• Because a reliable supply of 
clean water is vital to health and 
life, the service must never faiL 

• The industry has important 
regulatory functions and environ- 
mental responsibilities, including 
river quality and the control of 
pollution. 

Issues of public accountability 
and finance arise. Accountability 
was reduced by the government's 
1983 Water Act. This abolished 
local authority representation on 


the water boards, which became 
appointed rather than elected, 
scrapped the automatic rights of 
press and public to attend their 
meetings and abolished the 
National Water Council, co- 
ordinator of national policy'. 

Since then all nine English 
water authorities have refused to 
meet in public, and have been 
widely criticized as a result. It 
seems extraordinary that matters 
concerning the supply and qual- 
ity of this basic commodity 
should be considered in secret. 

Given that we must have 
water, it follows that we have no 
option - but to pay the price 
demanded for it. Thus water 
rates are a form of taxation, now 
totalling more than £2.000 mil- 
lion a year. In future this would 
be imposed by commercial 
companies, making them unique 
in this country of having the 
power to levy taxation. 

The suggestion that a director- 
general of water services will 
maintain some public control of 
the pricing policy of these private 
companies is hardly credible; 


once established, they will be able 
to insist on any price by 
threatening ill efieos on supply 
or infrastructure improvements. 

Will they really want to spend 
the huge sums of money nec- 
essary to repair the infrastruc- 
ture? Will they readily impose 
self-regulation? For that matter, 
should they be allowed to? 

There is too much at stake in 
terms of public health for such 
matters to be subject to short- 
term market considerations. 
Prospects for water conservation 
will be bleak: companies with a 
responsibility to shareholders to 
maximize profit wifi surely 
encourage the use of water, not 
its conservation. 

One can have an open mind on 
the case for privatization gen- 
erally and still believe there is no 
argument for this one. In the 
public interest greater account- 
ability and higher public spend- 
ing are needed, not less of each. 

The course to follow is that 
suggested by the North-West 
Water Authority: “Instead of 
tearing down what has been 
achieved government should 
build on and strengthen what 
already exists.”

John Carlin on the new threat to world financia l stability 



Mexico’s debt 
message: relax 
or we renege 


Mexico City 

One Monday recently tens of 
thousands of workers were given 
the day off to attend a speech by 
the governor of a state adjoining 
Mexico City. They were ferried 
into the state capital in chartered 
buses to honour the governor — 
like all of Mexico’s 31 state 
governors, a member of the 
ruling Institutional Revolution- 
ary Party (PRI). 

The PRI kept the huge throng 
well supplied throughout the 
morning with sandwiches and 
Coke, ensuring a lusty response 
to the loudspeakers' bidding 
when the governor triumphantly 
appeared He spoke for three 
hours, the crowd obediently 
applauding, cheering and stamp- 
ing their feci on cue. 

At vast cost to the nation, such 
ceremonies — as spontaneous as 
a Cecil B. de Mille film — take 
place every day in Mexico; be it 
for a governor, a cabinet min- 
ister. the president or just a local 
mayor, the hoard is turned out to 
pay homage and render thanks to 
the PRI. the winner of every 
election for more than half a 
century. 

Pomp, the image of popular 
support, has been judged by the 
PRI’s wise men to be a key 
ingredient in the power formula. 
There is also bribery, or "co- 
opting” as they call it; a "jobs for 
the boys” policy which has led to 
a vast and absurdly uneconomic 
Soviet-style bureaucracy, control 
of the labour unions through 
their leaders; and not least, 
electoral fraud. 

Loyalty to the party is re- 
warded in the same way that lack 
of it — for example, failing to ap- 
pear at pro-government rallies — 
can be punished by the loss of a 
day's wages. 

Money, in short, and lots of iu 
has been the basis of the PRI's 
success and stability. But now. 
after decades of unparalleled 


economic growth, money is 
becoming desperately short. The 
PRI leadership has never 
sounded so nervous. And the US 
has never been so concerned as 
evidenced by the presence in 
Mexico last month of President 
Reagan and virtually his entire 
senior staff. 

Both Mexico and the big 
international banks, to which it 
owes nearly $100 billion, feared 
for their survival in 1982, when 
the country went bankrupt. 
Emergency loans poured in as 
President Miguel de la Madrid a 
stolid technocrat, look power and 
ensured that the banks received 
the interest due on these, and 
previous, loans. Austerity mea- 
sures were introduced which 
have led to high inflation, low 
wages and a plummeting stan- 
dard of living for most of 
Mexico's 78 million people. 
However, the country has been 
kept afloat and interest payments 
maintained by revenue from oil. 
which accounts for 70 per cent of 
foreign income. 

But the price of oil is now 
sliding. At the last count, 
Mexico's oil income this year was 
expected to be $5 billion less 
than when de la Madrid took 
power three years ago. The $4 fail 
in the price of Mexican oil 
announced last week means that 
total oil income this year of 
$1 1 billion will almost exactly 
equal the amount to be paid out 


in debt interest. By comparison, 
the economic effects of the 

earthquake last September are 
insignificant. 

Blank reserves, meanwhile, are 
dwindling, imports are rising and 
the people are getting restless. A 
recent clash between police and 
ami-govemmem demonstrators 
left two dead. Last week 100,000 
people marched in Mexico City 
against the government, calling 
for non-payment of the foreign 
debts. The leader of Mexico’s 
biggest union conglomerate, for 
years perhaps the system's chief 
pillar, broke all established PRI. 
rules when he declared: "Our 
loyalty is to the people, not to the 
government”. 

President de la Madrid, on 
whom the bankers had pinned 
their hopes, now (ells tbem he 
can no longer finance them at the 
expense of his own political 
future. Speaking in London last 
week, his finance minster, Jesus 
Silva Herzog, said: "How can we 
explain . . . that still more sac- 
rifices are required to enable us 
to continue paying out 
creditors?" 

The sort of sacrifices the PRI 
apparently does not contemplate 
making are those which woulid 
undermine the demagogic work- 
ing of the party machinery. Nor 
has de la Madrid shown any real 
willingness to trim the bureau- 
cracy or to court further un- 
popularity by. for example. 


raising the one peso (a sixth of a 
penny) fare on the Mexico City 
underground. 

Seeing that under present 
conditions there will soon be no 
money left to pay for PRI 
populism, the government yes- 
terday said the previously 
unspeakable — that interest 
cannot be paid. Default is on the 
cards. 

The prospect horrifies the 
bankers, who fear a snowball 
effect that could lead to the 
disintegration of the world finan- 
cial system. In recent weeks the 
governments of Argentina, Ven- 
ezuela and Colombia have said 
that the financial burden im- 
posed on them by the developed 
nations is threatening their stabil- 
ity, posing a danger to their 
fragile democracies. 

Showing an unprecedented and 
growing commoness of purpose, 
Latin American governments are 
sending a dear message to the 
governments and banks of the 
US. Britain and other developed 
nations: “Don't be so greedy or 
you will end up with nothing." 
They are asking, essentially, for 
much lower interest rates and the 
lifing of growl h-li mi ting trade 
barriers. “If we don’t have 
growth we can’t pay" has become 
their motto. 

According to diplomats in 
Mexico City, the banks are being ■ 
either unwilling or too slow to I 
react Meanwhile the clamour 1 
among the people here in 
Mexico, in particular, is growing 
Union leaders are warning of "a 
social explosion". The govern- 
ment wifi use repression if need 
be but fears its consequences. 

In an interview this week, one 
of the Mexican government's 
chief debt negotiators told me 
that “political negotiations” with 
the developed nations must begin

“is rapidly running out". 


Will costs be awarded to legal aid? 

The bailie between the Bar and ° 


the government over increased 
pay for legal aid work comes to a 
head this week, with barristers 
talking of sanctions that lake 
them close to industrial action. 
Bui so far the chances for 
winning higher pay are not good. 

Last month, for example, the 
government announced a top- 
level scrutiny into the workings 
of the legal aid scheme, now 
costing the taxpayer £320 million 
a year. The four-month inquiry 
by civil servants from the Lord 
Chancellors department, the 
Treaury and the Cabinet Office 
efficiency unit comes against a 
background of rapidly rising costs 
in one of the fastest-growing 
branches of the welfare slate. The 
bill is more than three times the 
estimated cost of the scheme just 
six years ago. 

David Edwards, legal aid 
secretary at the Law Society, 
which administers the scheme, 
says he is concerned that the 
scrutiny is aimed at restricting 
eligibility by narrowing the 
scheme's scope. 

Fears are fanned by the 
forthcoming Legal Aid (Scotland) 
Bill, which will remove the 
scheme in Scotland from the Law 
Society and place it with a new 
body with greater control. The 
consul-iaiion paper for that bill 
suggests abolishing full legal aid 


where a defendant pleads guilty 
in the magistrates' court and 
where only his sentence is to be 
determined, even though it might 
be a custodial one. 

Edwards also says that despite 
the growth in the volume of legal 
aid in recent years, admin- 
istrative staffs have been held 
down, causing delays as long as 
three months in granting aid. The 
scrutiny might mean further 
deterioration in the service, he 
says. 

There have been other signs of 
Strains on the legal aid budget. 
This year, the capital limits 
below which people qualify for 
legal aid were not increased in 
line with inflation, which could 
mean that more people have 
been cut from its scope. 

In theory, everyone can obtain 
criminal legal aid awarded on an 
^interests of justice” test. There 
is also a means test based on 
income and capital, by which 
people can be ordered to make 
contributions to costs. 

In practice, about one in five 
defendants are legally aided: 
everyone at risk of custody, or 
loss of job. for example, will 
quality, which means all but the 
tiny number before the Crown 
court who are held to have 
sufficient means. Bui many 
people before the magistrates'' 


court on minor offences will not 
qualify. 

On the civil side, some 70 per 
cent of the population qualify. 
There are two hurdles: the merits 
of the case, decided by a panel of 
lawyers, and a means test. 

Criminal legal aid accounts for 
the lion's share of the bilL The 
figure for 1985/86 is £150 
milljon, compared with £85 
million for civil legal aid. 
Another £63 million js taken up 
by legal advice on both the 
criminal and civil fronts. 
Growth, however, has been 
across the board. Unemployment 
may mean that more people are 
eligible for the scheme and 
consumer awareness has also 
increased the number applying. 

On the criminal side, there has 
been better productivity in the 
criminal justice system with a big 
rise in the work of the courts. On 
the civil side, (he biggest drain 
has been in the matrimonial 
sphere. 

On top of this increase in 
volume; the actual costs of 
individual cases have grown. A 
divorce case in the county court 
which cost roughly £600 in 
1983/84 is projected at £900 in 
the coming year. 

There are strong arguments, 
however, not only for preserving 
the system but for expanding it 


and filling in its gaps. Last year 
the legal aid watchdog body, the 
Lord Chancellor's advisory com- 
mittee. called for a number of 
reforms to remove injustices in 
the scheme, such as lack of legal 
aid for industrial tribunals or 
libel actions. 

The committee wanted consid- 
eration to be given to individuals 
fighting large public institutions. 
It also called for the country's 56 
community taw centres to be put 
on a secure financial basis; at 
present, about half of them are at 
risk of closure. None of these 
proposals was implemented and 
the committee found itself mak- 
ing the same pleas this year. 

At a time when the govern- 
ment is committed to spending 
an extra £20 million for the new 
duty-sdiritor scheme for free 
legal advice in police stations, 
and when lawyers are pressing for 
increases in their legal aid pay, 
the case against all cash limits 
may be difficult to sustain. 

There is a real danger, at 
present that if the lawyers have 
any measure of success in their 
current pay claim, the standards 
of the legal aid service may be se- 
cured, but fewer people will enjoy 
its benefits.

Whitehall pact in 
need of repair 

It turns out that when Michael disobliging to governments does 
Heseltinc claimed the Westland not come from the Tisdales and 


affair was a major constitutional 
issue he was right for the wrong 
reasons. His own thesis - that it 
all showed the Prime Minister as 
too powerful and the Cabinet too 
weak — was quickly disposed of 
as the facts emerged. The trouble 
actually stemmed from Mrs 
Thatcher's weakness, for had she 
shut him up or sacked him 
earlier she would have avoided 
most of her difficulties. But now 
we do have a genuine constitu- 
tional issue, about the right of 
Parliament to cross-examine civil 
servants. 

It involves a clash between 
three competing interests: min- 
isters, the bureaucracy and Par- 
liament In pure constitutional 
theory such a dash is impossible: 
ministers execute the will of 
Parliament, the bureaucracy is an 
inseparable arm of ministerial 
power, the system is a seamless 
web. In addition, ministers are 
supposed to be supported by a 
reliable parliamentary majority 
and bureaucrats are supposed to 
be the permanent, faceless and 
obedient servants of the govern- 
ment of the day. The Westland 
affair illustrates how far all three 
“estates" have moved from this 
ideal picture. 

This government, like its four 
or five predecessors, has aban- 
doned the foil theory of min- 
isterial responsibility. Ministers 
do not feel obliged to take the 
blame for ail the mistakes of their 
ministry. Leon Brittan would not 
have resigned unless an inquiry 
had shown that he had improp- 
erly authorized leaking the Solic- 
itor General's letter. He could, 
and would, have disowned a 
mistake by his private secretary 
or his press officer. By the same 
token. Mrs Thatcher does not 
say: “I must take responsibility 
for the 'misunderstanding' of my 
private office since I appointed 
and oversee its members; l 
therefore resign.” She says in 
effect. “Mr Powdl and Mr 
Ingham made a mistake, but 1 
knew nothing about it until 
later," and assumes that ends the 
matter. 

This attitude breaks the com- 
pact on which civil service 
silence and anonymity rest: "As 
minister I take responsibility but 
expect your silence; as civil 
servant, you keep your mouth 
shut but get shielded from public 
criticism. Mrs Thatcher has 
been desperately trying to pre- 
serve one half of this bargain by 
resisting the appearance of her 
officials in public, but she has 
given up the other, with predict- 
able results. If ministers allow 
blame to rest with individuaL 
identifiable civil servants they 
must expea two consequences: 
critics of government actions will 
hold officials publicly respon- 
sible. and the civil servant will 
claim, and deserve, the right to 
defend himself in public, if 
necessary by shifting blame back 
on to ministers. 

Of these critics, the most 
persistent and prominent are the 
press, a fact which partly ac- 
counts for the enormous increase 
in leaks from Whitehall to Flea 
Street Most inside information 


Pontings but by way of discreet 
"guidance" from senior Gvil 
Service colleagues who do not see 
why they should lake all the flah- 
for their ministerial masters. 

A parallel development has 
also revived, in a new form, the 
1 9th century role of Parliament 
as a potential adversary rather 
than an adjutant of government 
The growing importance of the 
Commons* specialist select 
committees is the result of a 
loosening of the grip of the party 
machines on British politics. 

The Commons Defence 
Committee can insist on sending 
for any “persons and papers" it 
thinks fit because its Conser- 
vative majority is prepared to 
defy the government whips. This 
defiance no doubt arises in part 
because some of its Tory mem. 7 
hers, including the chairman, 
have no good reason to feel 
personal loyalty to Mrs Thatcher. 
This particular committee also 
has a certain cross-bench esprit 
resulting from a common addic- 
tion to defence. But it is more 
complicated than that. A train of 
cause and effect starting from 
long-term social and economic 
changes leads to the Alliance 
threat in Conservative seats and 
then to the waywardness of local 
Conservative parties and willing- 
ness of Conservative MPS to rock 
the boat or even to manufacture 
their own Uferafts. 

There is not much point in 
arguing whether these trends, 
which have contributed vastly to 
the openness of our political and 
administative processes, arc be? 
ter on balance than the closed 
circle of the prewar system. That 
system could not possibly be 
maintained, even if anyone 
thought it desirable, without a 
social culture and a class system 
that has been swept away. 

For better or worse, we have to 
live with professional, full-time 
politicians who live and die by 
the media and cannot afford to 
accept forma] responsiblily for 
more mistakes than they have to. 
As a result, we are gradually 
learning to live with an identi- 
fiable. and to some extent 
separately accountable. Civil Ser- 
vice and we can expea to face a 
parliamentary system which be- 
comes more and more fluid, 
unpredictable and inquisitorial. 

The question is rather how wj- 
maintain or reacquire (since we 
seem to have lost them) the 
minimum requirements of good 
administration: considered, prac- 
ticable policies executed ef- 
ficiently by people who believe in 
them for people persuaded to 
give them a try. How. in fact do 
wc reunite the constitutional 
parts of government? 

Most people agree that part of 
the answer lies in what we do 
with the eleaorai system and 
with the procedures of Par- 
liament But we tend to forget the 
relationship between the other 
sides of the government triangle. 
The Westland affair is another 
symptom of the need to re- 
establish. by some means, the 
badly damaged confidence be- 
tween politicians and their 
permanent officials.

It isn't something we boast about 
a lot, but this column has been 
computerized for several years. 
We use a sixth-generation com- 
puter, which not only thinks for 
itself but argues back ferociously 
and also groans at its own jokes. 
Recently it came up with a good 
idea: why not use its memory 
bank to compute what various 
well-known newspapers would 
have been saying if they had 
existed centuries before the 
invention of newspapers? 

No sooner said than done. We 
turned the date back to 1066, to 
the last great invasion crisis, and 
invited the computer to {Hint out 
the headlines of the day. 

“Naff off you Normans!” cried 
the Sum “Further Rounds of 
Anglo-Norman Talks Expected 
Soon," said the Daily Tele-graph. 
“Why Thanes make the best 
lovers," offered the Daily Star, 
"Why there will be no invasion 
this year." tried the Daily 
Express. “Government Urges 
Country not to Offer Any 
Provocation to Duke William for 
Fear of Retaliatory Action," says 
The Times, with what seems to 
be a note of appeasement 

“Ethel red the Unready? Bli- 
mey, how wrong can you be! 
Court beauty reveals sexy Saxon 
goings-on" is the Mirror’s 
contribution to foreign news, 
while the Daily Saf. as the 
Morning Star then was, is 
content with “Norman bosses set 
to take over Saxon economy." 

Given these encouraging re- 
sults, we turned the clock 
forward to 1588, to see what our 
press would have made of the 
impending Spanish. Armada. In- 
triguingly. the headlines are not 
very dissimilar from before. 

Sun: “Sod off, you Spanish. 1 " 
(or. "Get Stuffed, Sedates!"): 
Guardian: “Very real fear of 
differentials being eroded in 
Plymouth shipyards, say guild 
leaders"; Daily Star “The saucy 
secrets of those sexy Senoresi”; 
The Times : “Government Denies 
Rumours of a Catholic Mole in 
the Cabinet.” 

Mirror “Exclusive: Sir Frauds 
Dralffe on My Way to Playing 


all out 

Better Bowls"; Express: “Why 
the Queen put her career before a 
family life — a courtier reveals 
all": Financial Times: “Dou- 
bloon exchange rate at all-time 
low"; Daily Peasant: "Colonial- 
ist. imperialist armada set to 
meet imperialist, colonialist En- 
glish fleet.” 

We dropped in briefly at 1 745:; 
to see what the English papers 
made of Bonnie Prince Charlie 
and his clansmen, but it seems 
that invasion coverage does not 
change much, with headlines Like 
"The Prince who dresses in 
women's dothes", "Why lairds 
make the best lovers", “German 
George’s gorgeous girls” and 
“Clear off. you clansmen!" 
Admittedly, the Financial Times 
had a bit of a scoop with “The 
money in national anthems: 
Profile of Dr Thomas Arne”, but 
we decided to shoot on to 1777 
and the setting up of the new 
American Republic. 

Daily Labourer: “Freedom ~ 
fighters win self-determination. “ 
cast off British yoke"; Sun. : "Am- 
erica? You’re welcome, Yan- 
kees!** Guardian : “A Guarded 
Welcome to the New Democracy 
Across the Atlantic, While at the 
Same Time Very Real Fears of 
the Emergence of a New Super- 
power to Upset Balance of the 
Developed World. Inside: Mrs

man’s View of the Revolution." 

Mirror “Biggest prizes ever* 
Win a dollanand be rich fo£' 
life!"; Daily Star “Sex secrets of 
those Yankee Doodle Dandies!”: 
/Vents of the World: “Playboy Bill

tution will not harm lucrative 
slave trade, promise US lead- 
ers.": Daily Mail: “Mistress 
Whitehouse condemns Gibbon's 
history of Rome; lascivious and* 
lustful, she says." r. 

Curiously, the computer makes 
no mention of The Times for this 
vital period After sharp ques- 
tioning. it revealed: "Times

Any nuclear accident, how- 
fever trivial, produces a fij*. 
son of fear and no amount of 
'tut-tutting by BNFL spokes- 
man will change that. It is an 
-.inescapable feet that the 
^processing of spent fuel, like 
V° ost processes featuring 
■plutomom, take place in a 
^context of wbat is at best 
ipubttc uncertainty and at 
.‘worst cold fear. Each incident 
at Sellafield, and there have 
4 >een too many, implicates the 
?yery activity of reprocessing 
rin which BNFL has invested 
fboth resource and that most 
fprecious of commodities, the 
^confidence of the public in 
^nuclear energy. 

; f. It may be that each of the 
^successive accidents and in- 
cidents at Sellafield are un- 
f related. They do have a 
^cumulative effect, for it is a 
[natural suspicion that man- 
agerial failure is a part cause 
ajf each. This, the latest 
:inevitably deepens public 
ranxiety. It cannot be buried 
'-as easily as contaminated 
"operatives’ work-clothes. 

-* Accidents will happen in 
.the best-ordered industry. 
[Environmentalists, however 


an aerosol 
jet ora ptunp implies nothing 
beyond itself; nor necessarily 
does a chapter of accidents in 
oinerent locations in the large 
manufacturing and processing 
area that Sellafield en- 
compasses. * 

But a perception has un- 
avoidably grown up that 
Sellafield is accident-prone 
and that somewhere in the 
causal chain there has been 
failure of supervision , the 
sort of failure which ex post 
facto inquiry by the Health 
and Safety Commission and 
other regulatory bodies has 
seemed powerless to prevent. 
That- said, the Nuclear In- 
stallations Inspectorate must 
now provide the fullest pos- 
sible demonstration, within 
the bounds of commercial 
confidentiality, that Sellafield 
is well governed. Where 
safety rules have been in- 
fringed, there must be fines. 
And where fines fail ( BNFL 
has paid out in the courts 
before ) central intervention 
to shake up management may 
be required. 

A single incident of as yet 
unknown seriousness, is a 
flimsy basis for review of 


calculations concerning the 
proposed reprocessing plant 
at the United Kingdom 
Atomic Energy Authority’s 
Dounreay site. 

They concern the safety of 
the plant, and the cost of 
further safety work (to the 
extent that safety is a function 
of investment). They also 
concern the safety of the 
public, meaning the plant's 
neighbours. There may be 
some perfectly plausible rea- 
son for the apparent pattern 
in leukaemia in children in 
Caithness ; the pattern may 
be a statistical apparition; 
even if it exists there may be 
some non-nuclear explana- 
tion. The scare about 
radiocative iodine in the 
water supply of Surrey may 
be just that, a scare. But these 
are not phenomena to be 
brushed under the carpet 
Their investigation is urge ell 
T he feet is that there is a vast 
work of public education 
about the incidence and 
probable causes of cancer. It 
is work in which neither the 
UKAEA nor the Ministry of 
Defence nor BNFL can afford 
to adopt a defensive not to 
say a dismissive posture. 


From Mr. NJ.C. Drummond 
Sir, One of your letters (February 
3) mentioned that the Westland 
amir has shed light on the fact 
that there is a shortage of 
helicopters in the Armed Fortes. 
This is a view very much shared, 
certainly in the Army, where 
often the only alternative to 
helicopter operations are those 
done on foot. 

What the Westland affair has 
not made known is the future 
importance that helicopters are 
expected to play in military roles. 
The helicopter has transcended 
its already nbiquitoas tasks such 
troop transport, casualty 
evacuation, reconnaissance, li- 
aison and artillery observation, 
to become a complete weapon 
system m its own righL 

The British Army already uses 
the Westland Lynx helicopter in 
service to act as an attack 
helicopter - a role for which it 
was not designed. Lynx heli- 
copters armed with Tow anti- 
tank missiles are' seen as being 
key weapons against massive 
armoured thrusts in a future 
European conflict. There is an 
increased requirement for this 
type of helicopter within the 
British Army. The Lynx replace- 
ment is already being considered. 

■Neither have the views of the 
Armed Forces been made clear, 
for they are users -who know best 
what tools they need for the job. 
When defence budgeting de- 
mands cost-effectiveness, the 
Armed Forces simply demand 
the best available equipment for 
the price. They accept that this 


cannot alwa^ be British. Too 
often the Armed Forces have had 
to contend with second-rate 
equipment. 

I served in Belize last year, 
where we relied on RAF Puma 
helicopters to perform every task. 
This helicopter needs replace- 
ment soon. Many of us who have 
seen the Sikorsky S-60 Black 
Hawk helicopter believe it to be 
the best helicopter replacement 
for the Puma. (The alternative, 
the Westland WG-30 was consid- 
ered widely to be inferior). 

The US-made Hughes AH -64 
Apache attack helicopter is 
considered to be the most 
combat-capable of its type. The 
Apache, like the Black Hawk, is 
already in service. Whether 
Europe can develop better 
machinesfor the price of these 
two is debatable, but what 
Europe cannot do is offer 
Britain's Armed Forces suitable 
future machines within an 
acceptable timescale. 


in Fleet Street 

From Mr Kenneth G. Braidwood 
Sir. Congratulations that a na- 
tional newspaper is at last able to 
publish an article dealing in 
detail with overmanning in Fleet 
Street (Bernard Levin. The 
Times. February 3. 1986: “Fleet 
Street: now the truth can be 
town. 


Mr Levin's examples illustrate 
well the lunacy of the labour 
practices and the denial of 
modern technology which 
threaten ruin for the national 
newspaper industry. Costs have 
now escalated to the point where 
they can only be home, and jusL 
by the mass circulation news- 
papers. Newspapers with more 
modest circulations face certain 
closure without heavy subsidies. 
Already there have been closures, 
with tire loss of many jobs. More 
are inevitable without an end to 
the absurd practices of the print 
unions' labour cartel. 


FEBRUARY 7 1896 


The poses of The Times in the 
second half of the 19th century 
constantly carried reports of 
military engagements and 
skirmishes in far-off places as 
Britain canmUdatea and policed 
her empire. That beloip by Colonel 
John Pede is such a one. 


Mr. Hesdtine. the former so- 
called champion of the Armed 
Forces, should have perhaps 
considered such things before he 
laid his job on the line. In 
supporting the European con- 
sortium be has let down the 
Armed Forces, who are not 
allowed to voice what fhev realiy 
think in public. 


Yours faithfully, 

NJ.C. DRUMMOND. 
Trinity College, 
Cambridge. 

Fiebruary 3. 


This is no sudden crisis. Some 
20 years ago I was asked by the 
proprietors and the unions of the 
Fleet Street industry, along with 
the then managing director of tire 
Economist Intelligence Unit and 
under the chairmanship of Lord 
Justice Devlin to lead a team 
which made a factual study of the 
national newspaper industry as a 
basis for the changes which could 
lead to increased efficiency 
within the industry and which 
were seen as vital then. 


NO BOLT HOLE FOR BABY DOC 


It is said now to be a

whether “ Baby Doc” Jean- 
■Claude Duvalier will abdicate

Even if he could,' there are 1 
grave doubts about whether 
Haiti could cope with the 
vacuum he “ would leave. 
There is no democratic infra- 
structure, no politically edu- 
cated middle class to seize the 
reins of power. The great 
danger must be that anarchy

One characteristic of- the 
last week or two. has been the 
pro-American mood of the 
people. Agitators have fer- 
vently unfurled the Stars and 
Stripes as a desperate symbol 


of the liberty they crave. They 
seek democracy and the 
inference one (haws is that 
.they would like the United 
States to restore it to them. 
But would intervention by 
Washington be wise? 

There is too the question of 
who would follow in “Baby 
Doc’s” shoes. The only 
advantage . which the Du- 
valiers have afforded -Wash- 
ington has been a kind of 
stability in- this particular 
coiner of its backyard - and a 
regime which has allowed 
little scope for Communism 
to flourish. Might the devil 
one. knows be succeeded by 
the devil one doesn’t? 

These are difficult ques- 
tions for the State 
Departments answer as it 
ponders the crisis in Haiti. All 
the indications are that Haiti 
will need American help in 
more ways than one in a post- 
Duvalier age. But perhaps it 
should receive it now. Per- 
haps the best service that 
Washington could perform 
for.Haitians would be to find 
a haven for its president, 
however unpopular such a 
move would be. That way, it 
might be able to ensure a 
peaceful transition from 
dictatorship to democracy - 
under the civil as opposed to 
military guidance of the 
United States. 


Leyland sale 

From the Chairman of the 
National House-Building Council 
Sir, Two years ago the “Think 
British” campaign asked all our 
MPs if they owned a British car. 
Only just over 200 replied saying 
that they did so. One hopes that 
in any future debate on the future 
of Austin Rover the other 400 
will acknowledge the contribu- 
tion which they have themselves 
made to Britain's industrial 
decline. 

We ourselves switched our 
fleet of 300 cars to Austin Rover 
m 1981 in the belief that if others 
did so the industry might 
recover. Although there were 
teething troubles we have had no 
cause to regret our decision 
because the quality of the British 
product has improved. Will MPs' 
now set an example? Or are they 
too late? 


ment-owned truck maker - as we 
all know to our cost! 

The industry since 1980 has 
gone through a difficult and 
traumatic business cycle and 
during that period all manufac- 
turers of commercial vehicled 
have suffered severe marketing 
problems. Over this period we 
have had to compete with many 
forms of subsidised competition. 
Competing with a State-owned 
company is. I feel, one of the 
worst, especially as the tax payer 
at the end of the day has to foot 
the bill 


The report look months to 
prepare. It was very detailed. 
Proprietors, management and 
unions accepted its accuracy. The 
Prime Minister of the day. Mr 
Harold Wilson, commended the 
report and he welcomed the 
changes it implied. 


Yours faithfully,

Whilst ERF is not large in 
world terms in the automotive 
industry, we do currently hold 
nearly 10 per cent of the UK 
heavy duty truck market and 
employ nearly 1,000 people 
within the gronp. plus probably 
another 50,000 indirectly through 
our suppliers throughout this

that the new consortium will

■ These are problems any 
Western country feces in its 
dealings with the Soviet 
Union. But they are exacer- 
bated where Britain is con- 
cerned by what Moscow 
perceives as Britain’s special 
nSationship with the United 
States. Even when the British 
government has dissociated 
itself from US policies - as it 
did over exports of equip- 
ment for the Siberian gas 
pipeline - the lack of trust has 
persisted and it has yet to be 1 
' overcome, despite the recent 
improvement in relations: be-

ington. ■ 

But there have been faults 
on the British side, too. 
British fiims, unused to the

The accord initialled yes-

new framework for commer-

countries,. That in turn could 
facilitate a real growth in 
trade: The timing of the 
accord, as the Soviet Union 
finalizes : its next five-year 
economic plan, could not 
have been bettered. And 
Moscow has shown a genuine 
desire to see a significant 
growth in bilateral trade with 
Britain - not just in Soviet 
exports. 

The present leadership in

Care of the elderly 

From Dr W. B. Wright and Dr J. 
S. Meyrick 

Sir, Your uncritical reporting of 
the death rate aiqong holiday and 
social admissions at the 
Whittington Hospital (January 
27) does a disservice to the 
elderly and to those' who care for 
them, both in the community 
and in hospitals. That such 
figures may not be representative 
is demonstrated by our experi- 
ence in the geriatric ward at this 
hospital Admissions are selective 
only in that there are no facilities 
for major trauma or acute 
surgery, although we regularly 
provide convalescence and 
rehabilitation after such events. 

In the five-year period 1981-85 
the 18-bed ward accepted 518 
patients, of whom 99 died (19 per 


cent), 134 were for family relief 
and social reasons, of whom 
seven died (5 per cent); 384 were 
for illness, of whom 92 died (24 
per cent). 

Many disabled elderly people 
can only be cared for m the 
community as a result of such 
admissions to give respite to 
those who care for them, and it 
most be remembered that they 
are already too frail and depen- 
dent to be transferred for such 
“holidays” anywhere except to 
hospital Arousing unjustified 
fears of this nature does nothing 
to promote their welfare. 

Yours faithfully, 

W. B. WRIGHT,

The changes were then talked 
about; and talked and talked 
about. Few changes resulted in 
practice. The unions forbade any 
real concessions to reason and 
efficiency; where they did con- 
cede it was always too little and 
too late. Instead their demands 
became more rapacious and 
unreasonable and the barriers* 
against new technology ever 
stronger. 

In essence industrial anarchy 
began to prevail. Month after 
month millions of copies began 
to be lost and prolonged closures 
were forced on The Times and 
Financial Times. There was 
general despair about the future 
of the Fleet Street industry. 

Mr. Murdoch and his 
workforce at Wapping have 
wrought an astonishing change in 
this scene and we should all be 
profoundly grateful, for their 
fight with the print unions is not 
only about the efficiency, costs 
and profits within the Fleet Street 
industry, it is equally about a 
freedom vital for a free society, 
the freedom to publish. 

As Lord Devlin wrote in his 
preface to that factual report 20 
years ago “The report does not 
raise problems for the press alone 
to solve. It raises problems for a 
free democracy.”

From the Director General of the 
Health and Safety Executive 
Sir, In The Times of January 28 
Mr Nigel Harris complains that a 
health service administrator is 
immune from prosecution in the 
event of his being found neg- 
ligent in some aspect of manage- 
ment that has contributed 10 
death or iqjury of a patient, 
whereas a doctor is sol 
H e is mistaken. Crown immu- 
nity applies to the Crown and not 
to individuals, and an admin- 
istrator is in no special position 
in this respect It might indeed be 
a difficult matter to prove an 
offence under the Health and 
Safety at Work Act against an 
administrator, but he is certainly 
open to prosecution in the 
circumstances envisaged by Mr. 
Hams. 

The Health and Safety Exec- 
utive would not however, pros- 
ecute an individual in 
substitution for the Crown. There 
would have to be clear personal 
responsibility. Nor would we 
attempt a prosecution in matters 
which are more specifically dealt 
with under other legislation, or 
by other inspecting authorities - 
for example, in a case affecting 
food hygiene.

Shackle in Nepal 

From Mrs. J. Men 
Sir, While no one would condone 
the harassment, humiliation and 
persecution which David Alton, 
in his article, “Speak up for these 
Christians” (February IX, alleges 
is meted out to the Christian 
minority in Nepal it should be 
remembered that the present 
situation would never arise if the 
Nepalese were allowed to pursue, 
in peace, the Hinduism which is 
an important pan of their 
indigenous culture. 

Nepal's government have 
made it quite clear that they do 
not want the interference of 
Christian evangelists in their 
country. If their wishes were 
respected, the “zone of peace" 
might become a reality and the 
Christian minority allowed to 
pursue their religion in peace. 

Of course the Nepalese badly 
need help with health care, 
education, agriculture and in- 
dustry but Christians seem un- 
able to offer this much-needed 
aid without, at the same time, 
trying to influence the Nepalese 
away from the traditional beliefs 
which suit their lifestyle and 
culture. 

Surely the Human Rights 
article guaranteeing freedom of 
religious belief, if interpreted in 
its widest sense, means also the 
right to practise one's religion 
without undue interference from 
unwanted evangelists.

THE OPERATIONS 
AGAINST THE 
SANA KACHINS 
(From our Special 

Correspondent.) 

Myitkyina4>ec.l4 . 
In December, 1892. while 
operations were being conducted 
against the Sima or Kamlao 
Kachins on the north-east 
frontier of Burma, the Sana 
Kachins from the north took the 
opportunity of raiding Myitkyina, 
setting fire to the public buildings, 
killing the Subadar Major and 
some few sepoys of the Mytkyina 
battalion of military polu». and 
then scuttling back as East as they 
could to their own hills, leaving 
some four or five of their dead at 
Myitkyina. As the Sana Kachins 
have been persistent in their raids 
on British territory, and have 
committed dacoities and many 
other offences during the past 
three years, it has been 
determined to punish them, and 
with this in view it was ordered 
that two columns of military 

S olice, one furnished by the 
lyitkyina battalion and the other 
by the Mogaung battalion, should 
proceed by different routes to 
Paakmg, the supposed capital of 
the Sana Tract, meet there, 
demand the fines ordered by 
Government, and. if necessary, 
exact the fines and the 
submission of the various villages 
by force of arms. Both the 
battalions of military police 
named above are composed of 
Goorkhas; so the punitive force 
will consist entirely of those 
plucky little men, and the 
Myitkyina column will have with 
it two small mountain guns, 
worked by the Goorkhas and 
carried by Chinese coolies, who 
have been drilled for the purpose. 
The officer told off to command 
the operation is Major Atkinson, 
of the 1st Bombay Cavalry, and 
now one of the commandants of a 
police battalion. 

A long line' of mules accompanies 
each column as it has been found 
necessary to take rations to last 
for three weeks. The force, after 
combining at Panlong, willl 
stockade itself there, send back 
the mules for more rations, and 
then despatch parties to visit all 
the villages ana exact submission. 
These parties will as far as 
possible move without mules, as it 
is in a long train of transport 
annuals that w eakness in fighting 
jungle savages lies. 

To the south-west of us 150 
military police under Captain 
Hodges, with Mr. Rae as Political 
Officer, and Lieutenant Carey as 
Intelligence Officer, are to work 
the Jade Mines Tract. This force 
is called the Jade Mines Escort. It 
would hardly be available to help 
the Sana column, as it has itself 
to form two posts, one at a place 
called Nanyaseik. where licences 
are just being issued for the ruby 
mines which have lately been 
discovered there, and the other as 
the side mines, to control the 
disorderly rabble that assembles 
there during the cold season. 
There is a very large trade carried 
on in jade between the Kachin 
owners of the mines and Chinese 
speculators. Jade is a green stone 
which is found in large blocks or 
slabs in the mines and in the bed 
of the Uyu river. The Chinese 
iade licence-holder pays the 
Kachins for the mines and lets 
them out in blocks. The 
speculators then dig in their 
blocks and the jade is taken out in 
large masses and carried by road 
first to Nanyaseik, and thence by 
boat to Kmnaing, Morgaung, ana 
Bhamo. I have seen as many as 20 
Shan Chinese coolies struggling 
along with a huge block of jade, 
which was attached to long poles 
by ropes and carried shoulder 
high. The jade is then taken to 
one of the agents of the licensee, 
who values it, say, at RsJ.000. If 
the speculator is prepared to pay 
this sum, be takes the iade away 
with him to China, where after 
being cut - and the Chinese are, I 
believe, the only people who know 
how to cut jade - it may be found 
to yield more than 100 per cent, 
or, perhaps, to be worth nothing 
at all

Staying power 


From Mr Alan Pidgcon 
Sir. In response to Mr Butler’s 
request (January 16) for examples 
of ex-Service material still in use, 
I treasure one such article which 
I feel should qualify. 

In 1945 I was detailed to make 
regular visits over several months 
to a PoW camp in Germany to 
interrogate a group of German 
officers. The war in Europe was 
over and they were glad to co-op- 
erale. partly no doubt with an eye 
to early release. When this came 
about, they presented me with a 
beautiful metal casket which they 
had fashioned from tin cans 


salvaged from the dustbins of the 
Pioneer Corps cookhouse. 


It bas stood on my desk for 40 
years, in daily use, housing 
writing materials, keys and odds 
and ends. Neither rust nor metal 
fatigue have attacked it in all that 
time. 


As it happened, the camp was 
code-named “dustbin!’’

Dishonoured 1 At the other' end, there 
is the sequinned grande dame of the 
later solo concerts, furs squirted 
round her like whipped cream — a 
visual and vocal caricature of her 
former self. Ail die visual evidence 
is there before us: the whys and 
wherefores, however, are absent 

Marlene, then, is infuriating, but 
rarely boring: Dietrich herself makes 
sure of that. And there is always the 
supporting programme for succour. 
Seventeen of her early features are 
showing, changing daily, ranging 
from The Blue Angel to Just a 
Gigolo, made in 1978 and contain- 
ing what must now be counted as 
her last film appearance. 

The Disney company's. Journey of 
Natty Gann is fortunately better 
than its title: better, too, than a bare 
synopsis. indicates. Natty. -played by • 
an attractive newcomer, Meredith 
Salenger. is a . Depression urchin 
from Chicago who sets out by hook, 
crook, train and . foot to reach her 
lumbeijack father in Seattle; en route*: 
she makes pals' with - a friendly, 
good-looking wolf; played by Jed. 

. Twenty or 30 years ago Disney’s 
film-makers would probably have 
settled for the Wand thrills and spills 
of a cross-country trek with a four- 
1 egged friend, but the company now 
aims for a little adult bite in its 
product. So Natty, .faced with 
skinning a rabbit. lets- loose a 
hcartfeh.'“Ughr. Throughout!, great 
pains are taken to root hfer 
adventures in a' particular social* 


world, where the unemployed and 
discarded children haunt the streets 
or crouch in shanty towns next to 
billboards with the ironic slogan 
“Home by Train — Travel While 
You Sleep". In the long run the 
director. Jeremy Kagan, takes too 
many pains over the setting at the 
story's expense. But. despite the 
script's simplicities and some over- 
lacquered photography from Dick 
Bush, enough warmth and sincerity 
. remain 10 make this one of Disney's 
best family offerings for some time 

Some of the world's worst and 
cheapest films deal with mankind on 
its last legs: Roger Cormari's The 
Last Woman on Earth, with a 
tedious cast of three, immediately 
leaps to mind. The Quiet Earth, 
from the skilful New Zealand 
director Geoff Murphy, belongs to a 
far higher level of production, 
though a residue of Z-movie hokum 
remains. The story's. nuts and bohs. 
for instance, need drastic tightening. 
We never receive convincing 
explanations of the meddling 
scientists' activities, or why three 
people survived the catastrophe that 
otherwise depopulated the world at. 
6.12am. leaving a trail of empty cars 
and half-eaten breakfasts. The film 
also shakes the old romantic 
triangle, to dull effect. 

For the first 30 minutes, however. 
The Quia Earth exploits its situa- 
tion with likeable verve and wry 
humour. The scientist hero, decently 
played by Bruno Lawrence, reacts to 
his isolation with fluctuating moods: 


tootling on a bass saxophone, 
moving into desirable addresses, 
boring himself with snooker. Then 
his mind starts to crack, the girl 
shows up. and the film backslides. 

International imports dominate 
this week. The Scorpion hails from 
the Netherlands, while Switzerland 
offers Dangerous Moves — last 
year's mysterious Oscar-winner as 
the Best Foreign Film. This proves 
to be a competent though tepid 
character drama about two Russian 
chess-players — a mercurial dissident 
and an ailing Grand Master — 
meeting in Geneva for the world 
championship. The air reeks of 
intrigue and tactical talk: fascinating 
enough for those fascinated by chess, 
but small beer for the non-believer. 
Michel Piccoli. at any rate, carries 
off the Grand Master's pan with 
elegant aplomb. The writer-director 
Richard Dembo principally works as 
an opera director, though there is 
nothing to suggest this in the film's 
dry style. 

At least Ben Verbong. director of 
The Scorpion, is a film-maker to his 
fingertips, eager to tell his stories 
with a visual flourish. The plot 
concerns a petty embezzler sucked 
into a political conspiracy stretching 
back to the Indonesian war. As in 
his Resistance thriller The Girl With 
Red Hair. Verbong displays great 
skill in sustaining an atmosphere of 
unease, though one could wish the 
atmosphere surrounded a tidier, 
more believable yarn.

Instruments of corruption 


Women Beware 
Women 
Royal Court 

Second only to Dr Faustus, 
Women Ben-arc Women is 
the most tantalizingly imper- 
fect masterpiece in the classi- 
cal repertory. For four acts. 
Middleton coolly unfolds the 
story of a double seduction, 
showing marriage, love, and 
physical disgust all succumb- 
ing to the power of money: 
and how people are violently 
transformed by what they do. 

But at the moment you 
have come to trust the author 
as a modern voice speaking 
clearly across the centuries, 
the play abruptly subsides 
into period convention and 
surrenders all its complex 
truths and detailed humanity 
for the rusty machinery of a 
Jacobean revenge plot. 

Middleton was a writer 
who regularly worked in 
collaboration and you can see 
the appeal of bringing in a 
contemporary collaborator to 
put the piece back on the 
rails: especially as the task 
has been taken on by Howard 
Barker, well known as a neo- 
Jacobean. The first half of the 
evening runs roughly as 
expected, with a condensed 
version of Middleton's text, 
and some -rearrangement of 
narrative order, coming to a 
stop just when the revenge 
mechanism is about to engulf 
the casL 

The ninety-minute second 
half, however, is no mere 
rewritten ending but an 
energetically sustained at- 
tempt to push the entire work 
in a different direction. 
Middleton shows sex no less 
than money as an instrument 
of corruption. When the 
virtuous Bianca is entrapped 
into betraying her husband 
with the Duke, the effect is 
that of taking fruit from the 
forbidden tree. As Barker sees 
things, however, sex is the 


Donald Cooper 



Joanne Wfaalley as Bianca, Nigel Davenport as tie Duke 


grand adversary of money 
and political power, and his 
main emphasis goes on 
asserting its regenerative 
powers even for the Duke 
(played by Nigel Davenport) 
and the arch-procuress. Livia. 
To this end. he reprieves all 
Middleton's victims, and in- 
troduces a new victim of his 
own — the Ward's compan- 
ion. Sordido, originally a 
loutish side-kick, transformed 
into an embodiment of the 
alienated young, who bursts 
into the court and rapes 
Bianca on the morning of her 
marriage with the Duke. 

What fa missing, though, 
despite the apopleptic energy 
of the language, is any trace 
of narrative invention to 
supplant Middleton's ending 
or relate the piece to a latter- 
day society where everything 
and everybody is for sale. 
The impart, indeed, is more 
Jacobean than Middleton, 
and more remote. 

The dominant impression 
of William Gaskill's produc- 
tion is one of long-range 
strategy, which has led the 
company to soft-pedal the 
first act so as not to dash 
openly with the second. 
Bianca's husband Leaniio. for 
instance, is a humble factor 
who has managed to win an 
upper-class girL When the 
RSC first revived the piece in 


1962 it came over as a class- 
warfare drama akin to Look 
Back in Anger. 

Hypergamy. however, has 
no place in Barker's scheme, 
and Stevan Rimkus's Leaniio 
is simply a good-looking boy 
in black tights who may lose 
his wife, but can still find 
erotic salvation with the wily 
Livia. Livia herself, one of 
the greatest female roles ever 
written, receives a highly 
mannered performance from 
Maggie Steed, who holds the 
role at arm's length, seeming 
to mock it: until, in the 
second act, she erupts into 
sexual passion and sheds her 
old personality like a dead 
skin. 

The production, played on 
a bare, pillar-flanked stage, is 
austere to the point of stasis 
during the eventful first act. 
and bursts into animated 
movement for the eventless 
sequeL Everything has been 
done, in short, to give full 
force to Barker's work 
(including spectacular perfor- 
mances from Simon Russell 
Beale and Gary Oldman) but 
I was left mainly wishing that 
Joanne Whatley's delicately 
cruel Bianca had been given 
the chance 10 play the 
original text, poisoned arrows 
and alL 

Irving Wardle 


TV Eye (Thames) marked the 
first anniversary- of the 
teachers* pay dispute by 
paying a brisk visit to a 
comprehensive school in 
•Richmond. Yorkshire, a 
comfortably middle-class 
town whose ancient streets 
flood with 1.500 teenagers 
every lunchtime, there being 
no , .teachers prepared to 
supervise them. 

As in the best produced 
school play, everyone acted 
true to type. The benignly 
sensible headmaster spoke of 
the “disintegration from 
within" caused by the “agony 
of spirit*’ among bis “very, 
very fine colleagues"; bis 
rather dull staff vented the 
grievances that have led them 
to withdraw “goodwill" for 
the past 12 ^ months; the 
brighter pupils expressed 
qualified sympathy for their 


Television 

mentors (whom they rivalled 
for articulacy); a meeting of 
double-glazed, mortgage-pay- 
ing parents threatened to sue 
the local education authority 
for failing to meet the 
provisions of the law; and a 
half-moon- bespectacled NUT 
demagogue drew a standing 
ovation from his loyal mem- 
bers. 

like programme did well to 
present a balanced round-up 
of tbe various factious' views 
in a scant half-hour, but it 
would have been refreshing to 
hear at least one dissident 
voice among this orgy of line- 
toeing — if not a contented 
teacher, then a scholar who 
was not cheesed off about tbe 
loss of lessons and extra- 
moral activates. Those of ns 
old enough to have children 
preparing for GCEs this 
summer are properly per- 


turbed at the patchy tuition 
and postponement of new 
curricula that have resulted 
from this disruption. 

Meanwhile. A CAS has ar- 
bitrated without managing to 
conciliate; intransigence holds 
sway, the money will prob- 
ably have to be found. 
Perhaps this report's most 
useful function was to ad- 
vertise the teachers' continu- 
ing case. Notwithstanding 
their hefty holidays, they 
have, in the eyes of many, 
been underpaid. The Head of 
English at Richmond, for 
example, pulls in a decidedly 
nhefty £12,000. Small won- 
der that her senior pupils 
have no apparent insight into 
what “hopefully" can and 
cannot mean.

-Too often, though, that

strong enough. Rhythmic

a -tendency, for phrases. 10' tail 
off incomplete, especially 
where Pritchard was quicken-

the ultra-smooth phrasing — 
but only in No 2's allegretto 
was there sufficient contrast. 
Indeed. Pritchard seemed to 
eschew entirely that most 
magical of orchestral effects: 
a large body of strings playing 
absolutely pianissimo.. 

If articulation on a bar-10- 
bar level could have been 
■ more imaginatively varied, 
there was compensation in 
Pritchard’s spacious yet flex- 
ible pacing of the larger 
paragraphs. The pungent dis- 
cords of No 1*5 first move- 
ment bit deep, and in the 
same symphony's allegretto 
he judged perfectly the mo- 
ment 10 move from urbane, 
lyricism to more forceful 
passions. The orchestra 
played well for him too: there 
is another chann? to admire 
this very big band at the 
Barbican tonight. 

Richard Morrison 


Cleveland 
Orchestra/von 
Dohnanyi 
Festival Hall 

If one of Che purposes of a 
visiting orchestra- is to stir a 
concert capital into question- 
ing and rc-asscssing its under- 
standing of repertory works, 
then the Cleveland Orchestra, 
at the start of their 21 -concert 
tour of Europe, have already 
succeeded triumphantly. 

Christoph von Dohnanyfs 
understanding of Beethoven's 
Ninth Symphony is revealed 
only, in its end. in a finale 
which for the first time for 
me vindicated itself totally 
and finally. 

From the start, von 
Dohnanyi forces the listener 
10 readjust all sense of scale. 

The first movement pitted 
fragments and angles of 
phrasing against taut, near 
stifled climaxes: the steel- 
spiked scherzo was a master- 
piece of miniaiurism. And 
the Adagio was a mesmeri- 
cally' compelling ' experiment 
in creating cantahile purely 
by the steady, precisely cal- 
culated movement of each 
note. But what did this all 
add lip to? 

Robert Lloyd's magnificent 
entry with Beethoven’s in- 


troductory words to the Ckfe 
of Joy revealed alL By 
refusing, even in a so-called 
cantahile and even in recita- 
tive. to anthropomorphize 
his orchestra by letting them 
for one moment anticipate 
the human voice, von 
Dohnanyi was able suddenly 
to floodlight the full ex- 
pressive purpose of the voice 
itself. And. by taking Beetho- 
ven at his word (“when an 
idea comes to me 1 hear it on 
an instrument, never on a 
voice"), and treating his 
chorus and soloists too 
(Karita Maufia. Alfreda 
Hodgson. Siegfried Jeru- 
salem) as instruments to be 
played upon, deftly and 
flee'ily. he worked the para- 
doxical miracle of folly tlesh- 
ing-out the finale's human 
drama. 

This mercurial extended 
scherzo of a symphony was 
the thought to insist on 
standing alone. It was pre- 
ceded with equal originality 
and distinction by Gunter 
Reich’s performance of 
Schoenberg’s melodrama “A 
Survivor from Warsaw" 
juxtaposed movingly with his 
bittersweet unaccompanied 
choral setting. "Fricae auf 
Erdeh”: a most apposite and 
resonant preparation of the 
ear and mind for what was to 

come. Hilary Finch

Demerger 
to clarify 

The Takeover Panel has 
asked Demerger Corporation 
to clarify several points 
concerning its takeover bid 
for Extel Group. 

The request, described by ! 
Mr . John Walker-Haworth, 
director-general of the peveK 
as “an unusual situation", is 
believed to be for more

However, Britain is in 
eighth position in the list of 
western world exporters to 
the Soviet Union, the leader 


shown that trade doubled being West Germany foi- 
within five years proving that lowed by Finland. 


The White House is irrepressible. 
Hot on the beds of spending 
proposals which merely served to 
illustrate the atrocious tensions in 
American budgetary policy. Presi- 
dent Reagan yesterday predicted 
three more years of robust growth. 
Some 4 per cent or more each year, 
he maintained, could be expected as 
the result of a successful “economic 
formula” lodged in the early days of 
his Administration. 

In his 1986 economic report to 
Congress Mr Reagan said that, 
despite a painful transition from the 
recession of 1982, the United States 
was now poised for a new era of sus- 
tained growth. Its hallmarks would 
be low federal spending, low taxes, 
limited ■ federal regulations and, 
most important, low inflation. 

The report is nothing if not 
optimistic. It concedes that 
America's trade deficit will foil a 
little this year from the record 
$148.7 billion recorded in 1985. But 
it argues that increased business 
investment and continued consumer 
spending will raise America's growth 
rate from 2.5 per cent in 1985 to 4 
per cent. Unemployment, it fore- 
casts, will decline slightly, to 6.7 per 
cent, and inflation will rise only 
modestiy.from 33. per cent to 3.8 
per cent. 

Mr Beryl Sprinkel, chairman of 
the Council of Economic Advisers, 
serves as the Administration's chief 
optimist Undeterred by the failure 
to meet growth figures in last year’s 
official forecasts, be brushed aside 
private economic forecasts for 1986, 
which are mainly well below those 
of the A dminis tration. He has one 
genuine cause to believe outside 
forecasts are too low; few take 
account of the most recent foil in 
the oil price. The consensus among 
private economists is growth of 3 
per cent this year. But Mr Sprinkel 
said that because of tbe sharp 
decline in oil prices, most are raising 
their forecasts. 

The President's report does its 
best to assuage other obvious 
worries such as the rise in household 
debt late last year to 82 percent as a 
share of disposable personal income 
’ (a matter of concern to Mr Paul 
Volcker, chairman of the. Federal 
Reserve Board). At the same time, 
the report plays down the signifi- 
cance of the national lurch into 
debt. Americans have become a net 
debtor nation for the first time since 


World War I. The amount of US as- 
sets held by foreigners exceeds 
foreign assets held by the US, and 
the excess is expanding at as annual 
rate of $100 billion. 

Pressure mounts to 
settle ITC debts 

As negotiations between the 
International Tin Council and its 
creditors drag on, there is an 
intensifying danger that the issue 
will be decided by external forces. 

The 13 London Metal Exchange 
brokers involved with the ITC are 
now paying collectively £800,000 a 
week in interest charges on positions 
on which the ITC defaulted. It is a 
pressure few can stand for much 
longer. 

Worse, the tin price is drifting 
down to a level at which the 
arithmetic of Newco, the company 
proposed by bankers and brokers to 
take over the ITCTs obligations, 
looks fragile. Mines are receiving 
about £5,200 a tonne for their 
output — noticeably below the 
£6,000 on which Newco is based 
and a for cry from the £8,000 
enjoyed last October. 

There are technical reasons for 
this.On the supply side, some mines, 
particularly in Malaysia, are making 
forced sales. Tin trading started in 
Kuala Lumpur because Malaysian 
mines and smelters needed an 
outlet 

On the demand side, purchases 
are limited by users' hopes that 
prices could foil further.But it would 
be a brave broker indeed who 
depended on so precarious a 
balance. The more protracted the 
crisis, the greater the risk that tin 
prices will be too low to suport even 
Newco’s limited aspirations. For 
that reason, the ITC is clearly now 
concentrating its fire on the British 
Government Having foiled to wring 
much extra finance from the banks 
and brokers, the council hopes 
HMG will shoulder the burden, 
which by any reasonable standard, is 
the ITCs. 

It is vital the Government does 
not succumb to this invidious 
pressure. Considered brutally, it is 
better that a number of LME 
brokers go buSt than the British 
Government be inveigled by an 
organisation, of which it is a 
member, to assume all the other 
members’ debts

Yesterday’s Stock Exchange coun- 
cil announcement that the entry fee 
charged to new members would be 
in the lowly range of £10,000 to 
£50,000 is clear proof if any more 
was needed, of the council's fear of 
market fragmentation. 

Entry fees of up to £700,000 were 
suggested a few months ago when 
there was much talk about the value 
of the exchange's assets in both 
buildings and technology. But the 
unwelcome appearance last October 
of ISRO, the proposed International 
Securities Regulatory Organisation, 
coupled with the Securities and 
Investment Board's willingness to 
accept it as a recognised SRO, have 
caused a fundamental rethink by the 
council 

ISRO was the brainchild of 
overseas brokers and market makers 
operating in the Eurobond and 
international securities markets, 
who were independent of the Stock 
Exchange and wanted to stay that 
way. - 


The SIB’s distinction between an 
SRO and a Recognized Investment 
Exchange, caused the council further 
headaches. 

The SIB's thinking was that the 
exchange function of regulating 
markets should be distinguished 
from the SRO function of regulating 
investment business. The Stock 
Exchange would qualify as both, but 
to many at the exchange, the 
distinction was not a necessary one 
and would pave the way for more 
fragmentation and duplication. It 
would also open the door for 
members of other SRO's like ISRO 
and Nasdim to use the exchange's 
facilities. 

Yesterday’s announcement was 
the council's answer to the on- 
slaught — “Keep it cheap and keep 
potential new members sweet”. 

Applicants with more than 150 
approved employees vail pay the top 
price of £50,000 and those with 10 
or less approved employees will pay 
£ 10 , 000 .

Templeton 

John Templeton, who is 
bringing his company 
Templeton, Galbraith & 
Hansbeiger, to the stock 
market next week, has 
looked after other people’s 
money for 43 years. He now 
has nearly $7 billion (£5 
billion) under management, 
representing the savings of 
about 400.000 investors. 

Taking the Morgan Stan- 
ley Capital Internationa] 
World Index as a guide to 
standard practice, 

Templeton is overweight in 
America, Canada and Aus- 
tralia and substantially un- 
derweight in Japan and 
Britain, though that has not 
stopped the company choos- 
ing London as a market for 
its own shares. 

America, which accounts 
for. 63 per cent of 
Templeton’s investments 
against a Morgan Stanley 
weighting of 49 per cent, has 
plenty of undervalued 
growth stocks, according to 
Mr Templeton. He is, how- 
ever, particularly keen on 
the depressed Canadian 
market, partly because the 
limit on wage earners* con- 
tributions to private pen- 
sions is likely to be raised 
from Can$5,000 a year to 
CanS 15,000. 

Mr Templeton believes 
that Britain's economic pros- 
pects are reasonable, but 
that there are few bargains to 
be found in London. He says 
Japanese ratings are too 
high, so only 2 per cent of 
the funds are invested there 
Mr Templeton is clearly a 
man of independent 
thought. Whether that in 
itself will ensure the share 
issue is a success remains to 
be seen as the shares will not 
be priced until February 12. 
We will return to the subject 
of Templeton after that dale.

The problem was raising 
sufficient backing to get the 
McCullough machine to the 
stage where selling could 
start. It was to be portable

AMERE 2% RISE IN DISTILLERS’ SALES 
COULD GET A DISTILLERY WORKING AGAIN 

Guinness, it seems, keeps on going from strength to strength. 

Worldwide turnover continues to rise. 

And so do our sales in the USA, West Germany and the 
rest of Europe. 

We are confident we can put Distillers’ fortunes on the 
same track. 

In feet, if we can increase sales of their Scotch whisky by just 

2%, we can start to take the mothballs off the 20 closed distilleries. 

It will be just the job for Scotland, ttxtxtccc ryTT^ 

And it will work for Britain, too. kjUU\JN-DOO 1 LL

THE 


TIMES 



Bold idea 
# that kept 
its promise 


As the first of the new 
universities in the 1960s, 
Sussex quickly developed a 
reputation for innovation 
and glamour. It attracted 
brains and smartness, as well 
as the daughters of femous 
politicians, and it set out, as 
Asa (now Lord) Briggs, the. 
historian and second vice- 
chancellor, put it, to “review 
the map of learning" 

Whether it quite did that is 
debatable, but 25 years ago it 
hoped to effect a revolution 
in the relations between 
academic subjects. The the- 
ory was that knowledge 
cannot be divided into neat 
subject compartments. 
Schools of study were estab- 
lished rather than depart- 
ments, and students studied a 
subject in depth but in 
different contexts. 

Much of that theory re- 
mains, particularly in the arts 
and social sciences, and 
students still enrol for 
predominantly multi-disci- 
plinary courses. 

Peter Wilby, a Sussex 
alumni and education 
correspondent of The Sunday 
Times, says: “No university 
in history ever launched itself 
upon the world so boldly, so 
brashly, so self-confidently as 
Sussex. It was higher 
education's contribution to 
England's little Renaissance 
of the 1960s, a token that 
academics could swing along 
with the Beaties and Mary 
Quant. 

Has Sussex lived up to its 
early promise? The answer is 
a qualified yes. The univer- 
sity is no longer particularly 
fashionable, and colour 
magazines no longer run 
articles about students 
wandering around Brighton’s 
whelk stalls reading Kafka 
and talking about existen- 
tialism. 

Indeed, in the present 
dimale of opinion ^.wfcicft 
emphasizes the importance of 
instrumentalism in education 
and cuts in the arts, the 
university tends to stress its 
strength in science, particu- 
larly in research where its 
record is outstanding. 

Sir Denys Wilkinson, the 
vice-chancellor, who retires 
at the end of the year, says: 


“Whenever vou set up a 
university you hope it will be 
respectable in research, but 
this place has been stagger- 
ingly successful." 

It has 4,500 students and 
1,700 staff; and is consis- 
tently among the top three or 
four universities to attract 
research funds. In the blest 
listing of Science and En- 
gineering Research Council 
funding, it was, in terms of 
absolute cash, third only to 
Oxford and Cambridge, even 
though, as Sir Denys ex- 
plains, Sussex is classed as 
“small and arts-based”. The 
university received more of 
this SERC money than the 
bottom 12 universities com- 
bined. 

It has had 17 Fellows of. 
the Royal Society, six times 
the national average of FRSs 
- half of all universities have 
no FRS. It had had more 
fellows of the British Acad- 
emy than all the other new 
universities put together, and 
two Nobel prize winners. 

The reason for this emi- 
nence must be that Sussex 
was able to attract first-class 
talent when it was founded in 
October, 1961. 

Able to attract 
first class talent 


The university attracted 
such luminaries as Lord 
Briggs, Lord Fulton, the first 
vice-chancellor and advocate 
of Civil Service reform, and 
David Daiches, who came 
from Cambridge and was 
dean of the school of English 
studies. They were given 
carte blanche to create the 
liberal arts college of their 
dreams. 

Numerically Sussex is still 
more orientated towards arts 
than science, with' arts stu- 
dents outnumbering scientists 
by about two to oneT Bulls if ' 
Denys, a distinguished no- 
dear physicist appointed in 
1976 m succession to Lord 
Briggs, says the university 
has for many years had a 
policy of strengthening sci- 
ence. 

. “We don’t want to run 
down the arts until we can. 



A SPECIAL REPORT ON 

SUSSEX UNIVERSITY/1 

Tough challenge over 
huge funding cuts 


; “ ‘ : ; V- * ' ' 1 


Academic arbiters:. Lord Briggs, standing, and Sir Denys Wilkinson 


bring in appropriately quali- 
fied science students,” he 
says. 

Sir Denys justified the shift 
in the sciences away from the 
original Sussex model of 
schools of study with subjects 
being taught in other contexts 
as appropriate. Though they 
are still within schools of 
study, the sciences operate 
like traditional university 
departments. 

An exception, according to 
Dr Geoffrey Lockwood. 
Sussex’s registrar who has 
been with the university since 
its beginning, is the school of 
biological sciences, which is 
not divided into separate 
departments such as zoology, 
botany, but integrates the 
study of living organisms and 
evolution. Another exception 
is engineering. 

Dr Lockwood denies the 
Sussex principle has been 
eroded. Hie original concept 
of schools of study and 
"contextuals” was dynamic, 
so one would expect it to 
have changed. 

He says: “The economic 
and social situations have 
changed quite a lot so the 
■university was bound to 


change its teaching and 
research in line with the 
demands of students, ap- 
plicants and society at large 
and taking into account the 
money you have available. 

“When one looks at the 
differences between this 
university and the rest, the 
remarkable thing in many 
ways has been that so little 
has occurred. We still have 
schools of studies based on 
contextuals and 

interdisciplinarity. We still 
have small-group teaching, 
our research still largely 
springs from a mixing of 
different disciplines together. 
Though applications dropped 
sharply in the 1970s, from 
13,632 in 1968 to 8,114 in 
1975, they are climbing 
again. The tutorial system is 
modelled on Oxbridge, which 
means that students are 
taught in small groups. Sus- 
sex avoids the mass of finals 
examinations and has, in- 1 
stead, instituted a varied 
examining system, based on 
extended essays and disserta- 
tions. Another attraction is 
its beautiful campus set in 
the downs with buildings in 
■good condition and designed j 


to a human scale. The 
buildings are, however, di- 
vided sharply into arts and 
science, with the former 
benefitting from more grace- 
ful architecture and scenery. 

The university has a good 
library and laboratories, but 
students complain the cam- 
pus is too quiet aL weekends. 
The student union says it 
contains “too many trendies 
from London suburbs” but 
also the “most beautiful 
female students in the UK”. 
It adds that Sussex is an 
exciting place for a student 
but that it can be hard on 
those who are not socially 
self-confident. 

Mr Wilby say’s Sussex was 
like this when he was there in 
the eariy 1960s. He adds: “I 
am surprised that over 20 
years the ethos of the place 
has changed so little.” 


When Sir Denys Wilkinson 
retires this year as the 
university's vice-chancellor, 
he will have been 10 years in 
the top job. He arrived in 
Sussex in 1976 when chill 
winds were beginning to blow 
through the academic clois- 
ters. He was chosen presum- 
ably because he was a 
distinguished scientist and 
would help to switch Sussex 
in the direction of science. 

Lord Briggs, the historian, 
bad also spent 10 years as 
vice-chancellor. When he left, 
be said: “The intellectual 
excitement of the early days 
can still be recaptured, but 
only rarely. In I960 there was 
hope, now there is fear." 

The big change came with 
the new Conservative govern- 
ment in 1979, as h did for all 
universities, specifically with 
the decision to charge so- 
called full cost fees for 
overseas students. This 
meant Sussex's funding was 
reduced by 16 per cent in 
direct relation to its percent- 
age of overseas students. 

But the Government as- 
sured the universities then 
that they would receive level 
funding.' that is that the real 
value of their funding would 
be maintain ed. It was not 
and it is not. 

In 1981 came the famous 
university cuts whereby the 
University Grams Commit- 
tee decided how much less 
each university would get in 
future. Sussex's cut was about 
average. 

The university .was faced 
with an effective reduction in 
income in real terms of 21.5 
per cent between 1980-81 and 
1983-84. Again the university 
system was promised level 
funding once these cuts had 
been made. 

Sussex planned its aca- 
demic profile carefully in late 
1981 and eariy 1982, match- 
ing its activities to the 
number of staff needed. By 
the end of September 1982 it 
had lost 30 of the 65 jobs 
needed by means of vol- 
untary redundancy. 

“At the moment we have 
not yet reduced our academic 
iaculty numbers to the 


amount we would have Liked 
in order to break even, and 
the reason is that we thought 
we would be on level 
funding” Sir Denys said. 

The university system is 
now faced with a cut of about 
2 per cent a year. Some 
universities will be cut more 
than thaL some less, depend- 
ing on how they are assessed 
in the “select! vi ty" exercise 
being undertaken by the 
UGC. Under this, univer- 
sities that are strong in 
research will be awarded 
more money, and those 
which are weak less. 

Sussex is expected to do 
well out of this because of its 
strength in research. “We 
know we shall do quite well, 
because part of the UGGs 
research funding formula will 
be to give universities 40 per 
cent of what they get from 
the research councils.” Sir 
Denys said. 

Mode of teaching 
may have to change 

Moreover. Sir Peter Swin- 
nerton-Dyer. chairman of the 
UGC. has said that univer- 
sities which are favoured in 
this exercise may be on level 
binding by the end of the 
decade. Sussex must be 
hoping it is in this category, 
though level funding for 
some will, of course, mean 
less for others. 

Sir Denys said the poten- 
tial at Sussex is great, and 
that only with level funding 
can it be realized, both in 
terms of teaching research. 
Teaching consumes 70 per 
cent of the university's re- 
sources. Sussex has always 
put great emphasis on the 
Oxbridge model of small 
group teaching, but this is 
being eroded slowly. 

Where once the 
staff/student ratio was 10 to 
one, it is now 12 to one, and 
moving in the direction of 13 
or 14 to one. “If that number 
increases, a fortiori students 
cannot get the degree of 
individual attention they 
used to get We may have to 
move away from small group 


Leaching.” Sir Denys said. 

The siaffrsiudent ratio 
could worsen enough for the 
university to have io rethink 
its method of teaching. ThaL 
Sir Denys said, could mean 
moving over to lectures as 
the sole method of teaching. 
“We have to recognize that 
beyond a certain point the 
mode of leaching may have 
to change. That is something 
that universities have not yet 
had to grapple with.” 

One aspect of its affairs 
that Sussex does no: have to 
worry too much about is its 
own ' internal organization. 
The way in which univer- 
sities manage themselves was 
criticized strongly in the 
Jarrell committee report ear- 
lier this year. but. according 
to Dr Geoffrey Lockwood. 
Sussex's registrar and sec- 
retary. who sat on the Jarreii 
committee, the university 
was already halfway along the 
road of implementing re- 
forms in management. 

Since the report was pub- 
lished. Sussex has moved 
about three-quarters of the 
way 3long the Jarren road. It 
has always possessed some of 
the characteristics recom- 
mended by Jarretu notably a 
planning "committee which 
combined buildings, finance, 
social and academic affairs, 
and linked senate and the 
council. 

In its estates management 
it does everything recom- 
mended by Jarreii and in 
financial management it has 
almost achieved the Jarrett 
ideal. It had always had 
budgetary devolution so that 
each adademic unit controls 
its own budgeL 

Politically, as was the case 
in all the universities, there 
was a hostile reaction to the 
Jarrett report People who 
regard themselves as pro- 
fessionals do not like being 
told what to do by indus- 
trialists when industry is seen 
to be failing. 

“All university members 
had that feeling.” Dr 
Lockwood said. “But in 
terms of the practicalities, the 
report was dealt with 
pragmatically.”

SUSSEX UNIVERSITY/2 


(( FOCI JS )) 


The institute with a heart 


The Science Policy Research Unit is 
held in high esteem by the Govern- 
ment ana other organizations in 
Britain, and throughout the world. 
Established in 1966 as the brainchild 
of Asa Briggs, its aim is to undertake 
research that will help to advance 
public knowledge about the relation 
between scientific and technological 
development and economic, social and 
political processes, and the implica- 
tions for public policy. 

It is a research unit for science and 
technology policy. Its director is 
Professor Geoffrey Oldham and it is 
renowned for its work on the 
development of fifth-generation 
computers. It is monitoring the 
progress of the Alvey programme. 

The unit's work is focussed mainly 
on solving problems. Natural and 
social scientistswork together on most 
projects. The unit has three main 
themes: it tries to understand the 
nature of scientific discovery and 
technological development, and how to 
secure innovation; the problems of 
efficient management and the 
evaluation of research and develop- 
ment and innovation; and the eco- 
nomic environment and the social 
consequences of technical change and 
its implications for policy. 

Though the unit's primary objective 
is to carry out research, it also has an 
obligation to teach students. In 1983 it 
became responsible for organizing and 
teachin g its own postgraduate pro- 
gramme — a master's degree in science, 
technology and industrialization. ‘ 

It takes other research students - 
specifically 40 full-time students doing 


MSCs and D Phils — and does some 
undergraduate teaching in a variety of 
schools of study. But, like the Institute 
for Development Studies, it does not 
run its own undergraduate degree: 

One of its main activities springs 
from its designation as a research 
centre funded by the Economic and 
Social Research Council to look ai 
science, technology and energy policy 
in British economic development 

The unit has done a major piece of 
work for the Cabinet Office under Ben 
Martin and John Irvine on how one 
can predict in some areas of science 
what developments are likely to be 
more successful than others. 

Ian Miles is researching the impact 
of technical change on the division of 


Awarded funds of more than 
£1 million in eight years 


labour and on work and leisure and 
Julian Robinson is working on 
militanr technology and arms limita- 
tion. There are about 10 acres of 
research at the unit seven people are 
engaged on the anns-control work. 
Their aim is to doscover what causes 
states to arm themselves as they da 
The armscontrol academics have 
received their money from the Ford 
and McCarthy foundations and the 
Quaker trusts in Britain. The unit also 
operates its own Armament and 
Disarmament Information Unit to 
provide information on almost any 
aspect of defence control or weapons. 

Another important research outfit at 
the university which, like the Institute 


for Development Studies, is entirely 
independent, is the Institute of 
Manpower Studies, since 1970 
conducting research and advisory work 
on manpower and labour market 
problems. 

With a staff of SO and a turnover of 
£1.2 million, the institute works for 
iheGovernment, the research councils, 
other agencies and industry. Its 
chairman is Sir Peter Walters, chair- 
man of BP. 

Much of its research is into graduate 
employment, particularly in informa- 
tion technology, and the unit is looking 
at the problem of levels of graduate 
mobility. U is examining the availabil- 
ity of graduates and whether there will 
be enough of them for different kinds 
of future jobs. 

Another area of the Institute of 
Manpower Studies' work is helping 
individual employees to look at the. 
careers of their staff, known in the 
jargon as “staff development” It is 
helping firms to examine how an 
individual's career can progress with- 
out a new job having to be created. 

Firms have the problem of how to 
bring new generations through the 
company with fewer promotion pros- 
pects than previously. 

The institute helps individual 
employers who want to relocate offices 
and it has been working recently on 
the shortage of nurses. There are a lot 
'of nurses working in the community 
but some areas find it difficult to 
recruit them. 

The unit has looked at the extent to 
which temporary work is a growing 
feature.

TALK TOTALLB ON 01-728 7276 



The university's success in 
research is based to a large 
extent on its dose collabora- 
tion with big companies, 
foreign and domestic. Its 
nascent science park offers 
help with research and 
development to all companies, 
whatever their size, and 
especially to industrial firms 
locally. 

Sussex has also compiled a 
Services for Industry pro- 
gramme that includes .con- 
sultancy services, access to 
test equipment and workshop 
and computing fariliriga, and 
staff training. 

The university is also going 
into business. It has framed a 
company called Cognition 
with the aim of commercializ- 
ing the university's software 
ideas. Its function is to 
produce software products for 
the marketplace from 
developments by Sussex 
academics. 

Poplog, the new computer 
software system, is one exam- 
ple. By adding graphics to it, 
says John Golds, of Services 


In the business 
of research 


to Industry, it could be used 

in a financial environment, 
such as banks and finance 
booses. 

The science park has one 
completed building occupied 
by Aisio Seiki. a research 
arm of the Toyota group 
which specializes in energy 
conservation. 


The university is concerned 
that such companies should' 
be part of the academic 
community and does not want 
to set op a speculative science 
park where there is no 
guarantee of collaboration. 


So right next door to the 
Aisin Seiki building is the 
thermo-fluid mechanics re- 
search centre, that con- 
centrates on research in beat 
transfer and fluid mechanics 
and, in particular, with the 


’■ cooling of gas tnrbioe . en- 
gines. 

. Most of this research is 
sponsored by the Science and 
Engi aeering Research Coun- 
cil , Rolls-Royce and GEC- 
Ruston Gas Turbines. The 
-Sassex researchers hope to 
combine with tire Japanese to 
develop a small self-contained 
turbine unit for cunbhied 
and power applications. 

This is potentially an 
important development. Until 
now combined heat and power 
applications have bees done 
on a large scale, bat smaller 
rails would . be extremely, 
useful for, say hospitals, 
because such seff-ceutamed 
systems use only SO per c&xt 
of the fuel needed in con- 
ventional systems. 

Most of tire work in tire 
centre is concerned with tire 


cooling of advanced gas 
turbine engines, such as die 
; RB2JI engines of SoB*. 
Roy ce. The tan is to make 
engines mere efficient and to 
keep feel costs down. Two 
Sussex engineers. Professor 
Fred Baylor and Dr Mike 
Owen, were awarded first 
prize last year by tire British f 
Technology Group 8 b ; the ■■ i 
Academic Enterprise com- 
petition for their work in this 
area. 

A second company, 
Enrotiterm International, & 
building a second building for 
itself in the science park in 
order to base tire whole of its 
research tine. 

The unvmity benefits 
from tins kind of develop- 
ment, says Mr Golds, fit 
various ways. 

Sussex has so for worked 
with more than 100 compa- 
nies. Dow Corning, for exam- 
pi e. the multinational 
chemical ceramics company, 
collaborated with the 
university's chemists on a 
new form of glass. 






High climbers on the technology tree 


Sussex is proud of its 
reputation in information 
technology and, in particular, 
in artificial intelligence where 
it is ranked among the top 
three or four universities in 
Britain. It has established an 
Institute of Cognitive and 
Information Services and has 
a chair of computing science. 

Computing is particularly 
diversified at Sussex and the 
computing centre enables aQ 
schools of study to use 
computers. 

Staff at tbe centre have 
developed a microchip that 
can be plugged into a BBC 
micro, thereby enabling it to 
be used as a terminal to the 
mainframe computing centre.

ings for the centre. The 
brains behind it are Ken 
Blanchard, Brian Wflbams 
and Simon Barnes, who work 
at the centre. • 

The main centres of 
comparing activity in the 
university are in the cog- 
nitive studies programme, a 
mixture of artificial intelli- 
gence, psychology and 
linguistics, »nd in the school 
of engineering and applied 
science. The school of bio- 
logical science is also active; 
but to a lesser extern. 

Engineers are inevitably 
en gaged in comparing, but at 
Sussex they are involved in 
designing what are called 
large-scale integration drips. 
Dr Fred Halshall and Profes- 
sor Dick' Grimsdaie are 
working on distributed sys- 
tems, designing computing 
systems so that big problems 
can be shared by several 
processors. 

Both men are associated 
with research into broad- 
band networks: sending 
information between comput- 
ers by a braadostmg system. 
Professors Grimsdaie works 
on image processing and 
image generation. The aim of 
the latter is to produce much 
more realistic visual displays 
for flight simflaiors. 

The university has consid- 
erable support under tbe 
Alvey programme for its 
work in computers and tire

we already know about the

The collaborative work . 
with linguistics involves f 
studying language. The aim is 
to try to define formal 
grammars, sets of rules which 
can be held to underfy 
everyday language. 

It is only two decades since 
psychologists thought they 
would be able to account for 
language in the same way as 
we account for other skills. 
They believed language 
would be amenable to some 
kind of explanation. 

But language is learnt bit 
by biL It is a generative 
process and linguists have 
developed what are known as 
generative grammars and sets 
of roles. Computer language 
has become more com- 
plicated and software en- 
gineers rely on linguists to^ 
help them to refine and*' 
define computer languages. 

Sussex has tbe wood leader 
in this field. Professor Gerald

“phrase st ru c ture grammars”. 
These are more general and

A study 
in the 
art of 

inquiry 

Arts and social studies are 
one of the most exciting areas 
at Sussex with the work 
organized into five schools of 
study which are taught in a 
contextual framework. As 
Professor Margaret 
McGowan, pro> vice-chan- 
cellor (arts and social stud- 
ies), explains, the idea is that 
a student ‘‘majors’’ in, say, 
economics or history and 
studies it in depth ’ but in 
different contexts. 

This means that history 
can be studied in either the 
school of European studies, 
the school of African and 
Asian studies, in English and 
American studies, m a y ial 
sciences or in the school of 
cultural and community 
studies. The aim is that .one 
subject w31 inform another 
and connections made that 
would be less likely in a 
conventional university arts 
course. 

Economics studied in the 
school of European studies 
would, for example, be the 
same discipline as in a 
conventional course but 
would be examined in the 
context of a European social, 
political and cultural back- 
ground. 

That makes the subject 
very different, not least 
because students spend a year 
on the continent studying 
economics in French wain 
French compatriots. Econom- 
ics is a different subject in 
France. 

This approach to study' 
has, however, been criticized 
by more conventional 
academics, and others who 
have experienced the Sussex 
model. Peter Wilby, the 
Sunday Times's education 
correspondent, studied his- 

Intellectual history is 
one specialism 

tory at the university in its 
heyday in the early 1960s. He 
said a bare majority, of his 
study was on history and that 
the rest of his time was spent 
studying literature, sociology 
and philosophy. 

“I covered the 17th and 
19th centimes hot Tfiever 
found out what happened in 
the 18th century,” he said. 

During the past 25 years 
there have been changes in 
the course work to accom- 
modate this kind of com- 
plaint. Some courses have, 
however, survived from the 
beginning. One, “The Mod- 
ern European Mind”, was 
strongly criticized on tire 
grounds that it was brought 
over in a suitcase from tire 
USl 

It is popular with both 
academics and students. 
Some of the lecture series for 
the course have finished up 
as books. Examples are’ 
Humanirv and' Warfare* by 
Geoffrey Best and Tolstoy’s 
View of Art by Terry Difley. 

Professor McGowan ex- 
plained that the arts and 
social sciences have tried to 



A centre searching for a better world 


The Institute of Development 
Studies, based at Sussex 
University, is Britain's first 
national centre for the study 
of Third World problems and 
was set up five years after the 
university was established 

It investigates problems 
faced by the Third World 
such as rural development 
(irrigation, crop storage, 
seasonality). North-South 
relations (the Brandi report 
commodity trade and 
transnationals) and gender 
relations, education and 
health. 

The institute has suffered 
considerably from the new 
politics) ciimale in the coun- 
try. Its grant from the 
Overseas Development 
Administration of the For- 
eign Office was cut by the ' 
Government in 1979. and in . 
future the money would- 


provide for only 12 research 
follows and a director, it was 
told, instead of the previous 
25 follows and a director. The 
ODA funding, currently at £1 
million, would have been £2 
million but for the cut. 

The institute reacted by 
attracting funds from other 
sources and saved all 25 
posts. Another £1 million 
comes from work for 
organizations like the World 
Bank, the food and agri- 
culture organization. Unesco. 
as well as from Sweden and 
Canada. 

Each member of staff must 
raise one-half of his or her 
salary on a complicated work 
points system. 

Mike Farmer, the lDSTs 
director, explains that there is 
a good deal of interaction 
with the university. Although 
the staff do not teach - 


undergraduates, they super- 
vise 70 PhD students and 
teach two intakes a year of 50 
MPhil students. The institute 
also operates a pattern of 
three 1 4- week courses a year 
for between 20 and 26 people 
a time. It also runs an annual- 
seminar on food aid. 

These short courses attract 
people from the Third World 
- administrators, researchers, 
teachers and other develop- 
ment workers who want to 
develop new skills, to update 
their knowledge and to ex- 
change views with people 
from other countries. 

John Oxenham, one of the 
research fellows, explains that 
the JDS's research has three 
focuses: the role of the state 
in aiding or obstructing 
development; the part played 
by the various state sectors - 
rural development, public 


administration, health, 
education, and siaius and 
role of women; and finally, 
internal order. 

Under the last heading are 
raised such issues as how the 
policies of rich, industrialized 
countries affect development 
and the fight to eradicate 
poverty. How. for example, 
do countries differ in how 
they are hit by international 
movements? How are 
developing countries affected 
by the policies of the Inter- 
national Monetary Fund? Are 
they adjusting at the expense 
of the poor? 

The institute is aware that 
in Zambia, for example, 
infont mortality rates are 
beginning to rise again. “This 
is a frightful step backwards", 
said Mr Oxenham. 

The institute has a thread 
in disarmament and develop- 


ment through the work - of 
Robin Luckham who has 
researched Third World mili- 
tary institutions. 

The IDS has been doing 
some interesting work on the 
“diploma disease”, the no- 
tion that the relentless pur- 
suit of paper qualifications is 
an end in itself and does not 
always lead to productive 
employment. The aigument 
has important implications 
for developing countries be- 
cause if schools are not 
producing young people with 
marketable skills develop- 
ment is held back. 

Malcolm Scgali and 
Emmanuel dc Kadi are 
researching into the develop- 
ment of the idea of primary 
health care, mainlv in Africa 
helping Third World coun- 
tries formulate new ap- 
proaches to public health. 



The chemical and biological aspects 
of health are of primary concern to 
Sussex’s school of biological sciences 
which ranks in the top four schools 
in Britain, with Edinburgh, Dundee 
and Oxford. 

Biological sciences has attracted 
about £1.2 million for its work from 
the research coaorib, the Overseas 
Development Administration, tire 
World Health Organization and the 
Wellcome Foondafioo. Wellcome 
has given the nahrersity a lectureship 
in ModKmistnr and the British 
Diabetic Association has donated a 
lectureship. And under the 
Govenuneat’s new blood scheme, the 
school has been given four new

Another course that has 
survived since the earfy 
1960s is the study of history 
or literature with philosophy. 

At Sussex the study of 
humanities gives an im- 
portant place to intellectual 
hisioiy. This is not the 
simple transmission of an 
idea from one period to 
another, bqt the way in 
which people have thought of 
themselves as human, social 
and political beings. 

The university has devel- 
oped a particular specialism 
in intellectual history from 
the 19th centmy onwards. 
John Burrow is a world 
expert and Stephan Colliiii 
works in the same period. 

•In music Sussex combines . 
high scholarship with creativ- 
ity in Jonathan Harvey, a 
wcOrknown com p oser and 
highly regarded scholar. The 
same applies -to English 
where Gabriel Josopovia is a 
professor, but also the author 
of novels, poems. , 

Since the beginning the arts 
and social sciences have had 
a dose relationship with the 
continent because of the 
European studies school, and 
with the US because of its 
American studies. 

The university is develop- 
ing strong finks with Africa 
and with the Far East - Hong 
Kong and Indonesia. It is 
developing a new integrated 
degree with the aim of 
attracting students from 
Indonesia who will spend a 1 
preparation year at a lan- 
guage school in Brighton. 


Prof John Morrell; Greater 
a traditional university 


In 1985/86, biochemistry attracted 
£754,000 in grants of which 63 per 
cent was for medkally-criated re-' 
search. Dr Irene Green, for example. 


won a 10-year senior research 
fellowship from the British Diabetic 
Association for her research into the 
way in which fonKn is secreted. 

One of the largest grants of 
research money — £2WMW0 from the 
Overseas Development Administra- 
tion — has gone to Dr Tim Flowers 
for his work on developing a salt- 
resistant strain of rice, vital because 
at present rice can only be grown In 
salt-free water which hampers its 
g row t h in tropical countries where 
salt is brought to the surface and 
pollutes irrigation water. 

Dr Don Thomas, io his WHO- 
recognized laboratory, is looking at 
environmental control of the snail 
which causes schistosomiasis or 


hiUwira by manipulating the chem- 
istry of the water in the tropics. 

Jonathan Bacon is examining 
neural systems and Professor Mike 
Land, a fellow id the Royal Society, 
is looking at the optics of insects — a 
result is a new wide-fiekl X-ray 
telescope, an example of how useful 
things can emerge from seemingly 
pointless research. 

In chemistry, the imiversfty's 
strength lies in foe interface between 
organic, inorganic and physical 
chemistry. It is probably the leading 
institution in Britain for organo- 
tnetallic chemistry. 

Professor John Morrell, pro vice- 
chancellor (science), says there is a 
greater depth in Sussex’s school 


structure than in a traditional 
university. Sussex has a unique 
degree - chemistry by thesis — 
whereby yon can get a first degree in 
chemistry by entering a research 
laboratory in the noddle of year first 
year and spend most of your time do- 
ing practical chemistry through 
project work. Five students a year 
are able to do this. 

Sussex is noted for the work it 
does in the interface between 
mathematics and chemistry, and is 
one of the few places where students 
can specialize in theoretical chem- 
istry. 

In physics the university does 
much on the structure of materials 
and electron microscopy. The most 
consistently excellent academic 
group is which includes the five 
astronomers. They have dose links 
with the Royal Observatory.

No fielding in the cow slips 
as dog takes French leave 


By Stuart Jones, Football Correspondent 


The Screen Super Cup final 
will be staged in March or 
April or May or perhaps even 
early next season. No one 
knows and it would seem 
that ihe public does not care 
either. It was to have been 
held at Wembley, but that 
adventurous prospect has 
already been ruled oul 
A two-legged affair is now 
planned but the two clubs 
involved, which will almost 
certainly be Everton and 
Liverpool- may agree to 
reduce it to one leg. If so. it 
might be appropriate to play 
it in the middle of Stanley 
Park, the open stretch of 
greenery 1 dial lies between 
their two homes. 

The competition has be- 
come a farce, as seemed 
likely from the outset. De- 
signed initially to fill the gap 
left bv the European ban on 
Englis'h clubs, it has been 
largely ignored by spectators 
from "the start and threatens 
to become a monstrous 
inconvenience by the end. 
whenever rhat may be. 

Everton have provisionally 
arranged the second leg of 
their semi-final against Tot- 
tenham Hotspur for March 
19. Thai would be their 
fourth meeting in six weeks, 
their third 3t Goodison ParL 
If they go through. Everlon's 
officials have “no idea" when 
they will be able to squeeze 
in 'the final. 

Everton and the outstand- 
ing Southall held Tottenham 
to a goalless draw- on 
Wednesday night but the 
crowd, almost Lost amid the 
snow-flakes at White Han 
Lane, was a more relevant 
statistic. At a mere 7.548. it 
confirmed that Tottenham’s 
followers have been the most 
apathetic during the course of 
the competition. 

The lies against Southamp- 
ton, Liverpool and Everton 
were watched by 
Tottenham's three smallest 
audiences since the war. 
Their last home League 
fixtures against those three 
sides attracted a total of some 
92.000 spectators. In the 
Super Cup. the overall figure 
fell by a staggering 63.000 to 
a mere 29.000. 

Everton's supporters have 
been only ma iginallv more 
enthusiastic. The official 
travelling party that gathered 
in Liverpool for the journey 
to North London on Wednes- 
day. for instance, amounted 
to 15. Their two home gates 
so far. of under 31.000 for the 
visits of Manchester United 
and Norwich City, represent 
a drop of some 44.000. 

The others are not far 
above them on the graph. 
The crowds at Liverpool 
have gone down by about 
41,000. at United by 34.000 
and at Southampton, where 
the capacity is more limited, 
by 26,000. Indeed, the aver- 


age decline in attendances 
during the dozen first round 
matches was an alarming 
16.000. 

Cairo w Road stands alone 
as the one arena where the 
Super Cup has proved any- 
thing like an attractive propo- 
sition. That should not be 
surprising. The locals at 
Norwich City, the leaders of 
the second division and 
heavily favoured to be pro- 
moted welcome the arrival 
of more testing and talented 
opposition. 

The only other party to 
have gained from the compe- 
tition. which was suggested 
by the six clubs who would 
have qualified for Europe, is 
Screen Sport. The company, 
which donated £250.000 in 
sponsorship, is represented 
by Advantage International 
and Graham Walker, the 
managing director, yesterday 
described the event as “a 
fantastic success". 

"We came in when the 
national television networks 
were not covering any foot- 
ball. It was a coup. Exclusive- 
ly. we were beaming live 
games across Europe by 
satellite and because the cup 
was also attracting the atten- 
tion of the domestic media, 
the name of Screen Sport has 
become recognized both here 
and abroad." 

"The latest figures show 
that cur transmissions via 
cable have been seen official- 
ly by 80.000 people in the 
United Kingdom and by 
200.000 on the Continent. 
Since they can be watched 
anywhere in the world we 
estimate that the unofficial 
total of viewers probably 
amounts to several millions. 

"That may not seem much 
when you compare it with 
the figures of the national 
networks, but cable television 
is still in its infancy. Our 
only problem has been re- 
scheduling because of post- 
ponements but otherwise we 
have to be very pleased with 
the way that things have 
gone." 

The name of Graham 
Walker may be familiar. For 
four years until last May he 
was the marketing manager 
of the Football League and 
was involved in the sponsor- 
ship deals with Canon and 
the Milk Marketing Board 
He resigned because he was 
disenchanted with the lack of 
progress in the television 
dispute. 

It seemed ironic not only 
that he was able to take 
advantage of the protracted 
row between the League, the 
BBC and ITV but also that 
he should now be in charge 
of the successful coverage of 
a competition that is regard- 
ed as utterly irrelevant and 
thoroughly unattractive. 
"You said it” he replied 
"noi me."

French that at least he can be 
thankful to be spared those. 

Wednesday afternoon's prac- ‘, n ‘ • 
tice was cancelled because the ILi-Im. 
pitch at the Police ground and I 543005 - 
its surrounds were wet from Althouj 
overnight rain. And when naturally 
yesterday morning they re- Barbodiai 
turned there after breakfast, it may b 
they found that a number ol the seed 
stray cows had been having batsman 
their own bit of fun in the- Richards, 
middle. Other than passing a Because 
part of the morning in fielding Vincent 1 


the team postponed doing 
anything until 2.30. 

Much of this, of course, has 
to be put down to ill-luck. On 
the other hand, it never ceases 
to surprise me that England 
touring sides do not do more tc 
guarantee in advance the best 
available practice facilities. Al- 
though the time is never 
wasted, it is far too rare tha! a 
member of a touring party is 
sent on ahead in 
reconnaisancc. Had that hap- 
pened here, at least the pitches 
to be used for practice might 
have been protected. .As neither 
of the them played against the 
Windward Islands. Gower or 
Botham could easily have 
come on a day early, as could 
Willis for that matter, for all 
the use that was made of the 
last day at St Vincent. 

The Recreation Ground, 
where today’s match is being 
played, has been unavailable 
for practice and is not, in fact, 
in particularly good shape. A 
shortage of rain during the wet 
season shows in the outfield, 
which will be in much better 
condition by the time of the 
fifth match in April Still, a 
quiet influence there is Danny 
Livingstone: who held the 
catch which clinched 
Hampshire's first champion- 
ship in 1961 and is now the na- 
tional coach of the Leeward 
Islands. 

Although cricket comes as 
naturally to .Antiguans as to 
Barbadians, Livingstone thinks 
it may be a long time before 
the seed brings forth another 
batsman quite as good as 


lion fof the Tcsi matches is 
some way behind schedule. 
Botham, for one. needs hard 
work; but so do all the bowlers 
to get them into trim. It stokes 
me that there is a little too 
much freedom and nor quite 
enough subjection, that there is 
a reeling that w-ha: will be will 
be. 

The West Indians, for their 
part, are already wdl primed. 
In winning the Shell Shield for 
Barbados. Garner and Marshall 
have taken 48 wickets between 
them at only 13 runs apiece. 
Garner picking up 2c in four 
matches and Marshall 22 in 
three- 

With Richards resting and 
Andy Roberts now m rerirc- 
meni and more busy with rod 
and line than leather, the only 
Test player in the Leewards 
side today will be Richie 
Richardson. Ferns, who 
showed such promise for 
Leicestershire in 1984 before 
injuring a knee. may. with 
Winston Benjamin, give 
England's batsmen a taste of 
things 10 come- There is said to 
be nothing much between them 
for speed. 

I am sorry to say that the 
prisoners from the nearby jail 
no longer look after the ground 
here, though if the pitch is as 
good as. in the days when they 
did. England will have no 
complaints. In St Vincent, the 
Windwards’ victory over En- 
gland. though an obvious boost 
10 their cricket, meant less to 
the people there, so they said, 
than had they beaten Barbados 
or Jamaica. I would like to

England name six 
from Altrincham 

Non-League football by Paul Newman 


The continuing revival of 
Altrincham, spectacularly dem- 
onstrated when the Gola 
League side knocked Bir- 
mingham City out of the FA 
Cup Iasi month, has been 
emphasized in the announce- 
ment of a preliminary England 
squad for this season's semi- 
professional internationals. 

Altrincham have six players 
— Davison, Cuddy. Johnson. 
Conning. Newton and Ander- 
son — in the 50-man party, 
which will form the basis for 
the England team to face Wales 
in Merthyr Tydfil on March IS 
and for the annual four-nations 
tournament in Scotland from 
May 20 to 24. 

This season Altrincham have 
enjoyed the longest FA Cup 
run in their history - they were 
knocked out by York City in 
the fourth round — and 
consistent form in the league. 
The Cheshire club lie third in 
the table as they seek to 
reclaim the Gola champion- 
ship. which they last won in 
1981. 

Telford United also have six 
players (Charlton. Turner, 
Hancock. Joseph, McKenna 
and Williams) in the England 
squad and Enfield, the current 
Gola League leaders, are the 
next best represented club with 
five (Pape. Barren. Howell. 
Ashford and Richards). 

The squad, managed and 
chosen by Kevin Verity, a 
Football Association coach, 
reflects the increasing strength 
of the Gola League, whose 
clubs provide a total of 39 
players. The Drybroughs 
Northern League and Vauxhall- 
Opel League each supply five 
plavers. the Multipan League 
and North West Counties 
League one each. There are no 
Southern League players in the 
squad

Lloyd said before his first 
round match with Ben 
Tesleman that he was uneasy 
because he did not hit the bail 
well in practice. But he won 
easily, 6-4. 6-2. 

He was in unexpectedly good 
form in yesterday's second 
round match as he hit II aces 
and lost only nine points in 
eight service games during the 
49-minute victory over 
Gunnarsson. 

“I felt great and was really

auathema to several influential

THE TIMES FRIDAY FEBRUARY 7 1 986 


Howe is suddenly left 
out in the cold 
at Flushing Meadow 


Th<- .~i. -o 85 ®* x Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent 

Referee" Sir Howt ' 10 **ieve lie rare feat of 

““aS "°J on }f? ap_ r ^ mpttu ’ s at Wimbledon for 
ong the list of 16 consecutive years, with 

particular distinction 


officials at the United States 
championships. Howe, aged 
60, has been sacked. Accord- 
ing to a mutual acquaintance 

Bob is a very disappointed 
man right now - and this 
business could have been 
handled better by the United 
Stftes Tennis Association 
(UalA). 

Howe was assistant referee 
for 12 years before taking 
over in 1983. He had begun 
to seem part of die furniture 
at Forest Hills and Flushing 
Meadow in turn and his 
sudden dismissal is startling. 
Its prime cause is said to be 
staffing problems wi thin the 
USTA because of restricted 
opportunities for promotion. 
Howe had an annual short- 
term engagement as referee of 
the championships. By con- 
trast his successor will proba- 
bly be a fiill-time USTA 
official. 

Bora in Sydney, Howe 
trained as a navigator in the 
Australian Air Force, studied 
physical education at Sydney 
University, and was a 28- 
year-old country school 
teacher when he was persuad- 
ed to try his luck on the 
tennis circuit in 1954. 

In spite of bis late start he 


in 

mixed doubles (once champi- 
on, twice runner-up). 

Howe was also one of the 
regular Australian partici- 
pants in the annual players' 
cabarets at Monte Carlo, 
where his quasi-dramalic 
sketches with Virginia Wade 
had to compete with such 
drag acts as Fred Stolle 
(Shirley Temple), who 
mimed “The Good Ship 
Lollipop”, and John 
Newcombe (Marlene 
Dietrich), whose scarred 
knees detracted from the fact 
that he otherwise had good 
legs for the role. All that was 
part of the vanished joys of a 
circuit once dominated by 
Australians on and off court. 

Howe worked for two 
sportswear companies in 
Britain before moving to 
California. In recent years he 
has refereed a Davis Cup 
final and the Olympic Games 
‘"demonstration" event and 
has helped a London-based 
entrepreneur, David White- 
head, to organize a world- 
wide series of events for 
formerly distinguished play- 
ers aged 35 or more. Such 
promotions usually combine 
entertainment and instruc- 


tion with the marketing 
programmes of a variety of 
commercial companies. 

John Alexander and Ros- 
coe Tanner will bring their 
powerful services to bear 
among this year's “Internat- 
ional Thirty-Fives", as the 
series is known. Stops on the 
circuit will include Kilternan 
(a new tennis centre near 
Dublin), Paris. Moor Park 
(the golf club contains a 
thriving tennis dub), the 
Netherlands, Monte Carlo or 
Bournemouth, Italy, Macao. 
Barbados. Auckland, Welling- 
ton or Christchurch, and a 
Middle-Eastern tour of Bah- 
rain, the United Arab Emir- 
ates. Oman and Qatar. 

Ilie Nastase (Paris) and 
Tom Okker (Netherlands) are 
the best known local organiz- 
ers and it is likely that the 
players in action will also 
include Mark Cox, Cliff 
Drysdale. Bob Hewitt, Jan 
Kodes, Frew McMillan. Ma- 
nuel Orantes, Nikola Pilic, 
Marty Riessen, Stan Smith, 
Adriano Panatta and Roger 
Taylor — that is, when such 
old chums can spare the time 
from television commentat- 
ing, serving as captains or 
coaches of Davis Cup teams, 
or running this or that aspect 
of a game in which all made 
yesterday's headlines.

Howe: yesterday's man at the Meadow 


RUGBY UNION; CARRYING THE GAME TO A NORTHERN OUTPOST 


Forward thinking Wakefield adjusting well to 


on the back issue a whole new ball game 


By Gerald Davies 


By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 


An old and familiar phrase, 
redolent of a former time, has 
been brought out of a darkened 
cupboard, dusted down and 
freshened up and is. fashion- 
ably. doing the rounds again in 
the best circles. “It's only 40 
per cent possession the welsh 
team need" is already tripping 
off many an excitable lip. 

For once again half backs 
and the rest of the ihreeqnaner 
line are seen to carry them- 
selves with a bit of swank and 
swagger again. It may appear to 
be very flimsy evidence — only 
two tries scored but eight 
penalties kicked — upon which 
to base sucbconfidence. but 
there were other attacking runs 
which, though they brought no 
reward, encourage the belief 
that the Welsh bocks can do a 
lot with very linle. 

This is a source of cheer in 
that the backs, after many a 
long year in the doldrums, are 
on their way to recovering their 
rightful place in the scheme of 
things- But it is a mixed 
blessing. It implies an accep- 
tance that the Welsh forwards 
cannot achieve parity in the 
contest for possession. It may 
be that Welsh rugby, at 
national level at least, will have 
to live with Ibis adversity for a 
while so as to lay to rest its 
over-emphasis on scrummaging 
and mauling. 

It is 12 years since the 40 per 
cent phrase went out of fashion 
when the power of the British 
forwards ascended with the 
destruction of the South Af- 
ricans in 1974. Thai South 
Africa never expected their 
forward pride to be so utterly 
beaten was a rude awakening to 
them, but to take them on 
successfully' where they least- 
expected it was a great tactical 
victory for the Lions of that 
year. The trouble is that many 
an influential head has re- 
mained in the clouds ever 
since, thinking that forward 
power alone is enough to win 
matches. 

Now. with a Welsh pack as 
currently constituted unable to 
exert itself, faith in the back 
division is born a g a in . In 
considering the Welsh perfor- 
mance in the first two inter- 
nationals. it can be argued that 
this has been forced upon 
them. The sparkle in the eyes 
of the youngsters and their 
cheeky', precocious confidence 
— Jonathan Davies even found 
lime at one stage during a lull 


to chat with someone in the 
crowd and to comment on how 
good a game be thought it was 
— is good enough reason to 
(want to go back and watch 
them play again. Davies. I have 
no doubt, has his eye on a 
captaincy at some future stage, 
too. 

Although the Scottish for- 
wards were neither as 
overpowering nor as controlled 
as England's were at Twick- 
enham, they were nonetheless 
sufficiently dominant to ensue 
that Wales would not com- 
mand an even share of the boll, 
and to put them consistently 
back on their heels. 


So far, the three' main 
sources of possession, remain 
inconclusive. Wales are in- 
consistent at the lineouc they 
hardly fell the ball at Twick- 
enham. and if they won the 
count in the first half against 
Scotland, it soon dried up in 
the second. The scrummage, 
periraps because of the lack of 
bulk of both Waters and 
Brown, is of such uncertain 
quality that it puts Jones under 
constant pressure. Thirdly, 
perhapslargdy because of the 
uncertainty of the two set 
pieces, they are not winning the 
race for the loose ball, the area 
which could prove most profit- 
able for the attacking qualities 
of the threequarters. 

The task ahead is to ensure 
that parity, not necessarily 
domination, is achieved io at 
least one of these areas and 
preferably in two if they are to 
make life just a little easier for 
Jonathan Davies, Robert Jones 
and the rest A 40 per cent 
share is not really quite good 
enough, however talented these 
players are. 


Sporrell out 


The John Player Cup hold- 
ers, Bath, will be without their 
former captain, Roger Spurrdl. 
in their fourth round tie at 
Moseley tomorrow. SpurrelL, a 
flanker, has not trained fully 
since suffering sore ribs in the 
third round match at OrrdJ 
two weeks ago.He is replaced 
by the former England back- 
row forward, Paul Simpson, 
bringing the number of inter- 
nationals in the side to 1 1. 
•Steve Bainbridge.lbe former 
England second row forward, is 
to rejoin Gosforlh next season. 


For years when people 
have talked about rugby in 
Wakefield they have meant 
Rugby League and Wakefield 
Trinity. Trinity were one of 
the original clubs who, in 
1895, broke away from the 
Rugby Football Union to 
form the Northern Union 
and, over the passage of 
years, they have been a 
leading light of tbe Rugby 
League. 

Over the last decade, how- 
ever, Trinity’s fortunes have 
declined and the name of 
Wakefield has become asso- 
ciated with an open style of 
Rugby Union, an attractive, 
possibly lightweight but 
nonetheless empassioned 
club. Rosslyn Park may 
disagree with the adjective 
lightweight ten years ago 
they scraped through to the 
final of the John Player Cup 
by beating Wakefield 12-6 in 
a tense encounter. Last 
month they bowed out of tbe 
cup in the third round, 
beaten by a flurry of York- 
shire points which took 
Wakefield to a 23-19 win and 
a fourth round tie tomorrow 
(weather permitting) against 
Nottingham. 

None of their subsequent 
cup seasons lived up to the 
promise of that 1976 run 
which established Wakefield 
as a first-class club and lifted 
them out of Trinity’s shadow. 
They offered new personal- 
ities to the national scene: 
Jeff Dowson, a fine back row 
forward and captain for club 
and county, Les Cuswortb, 
who subsequently moved 
south to Moseley then to 
Leicester, whom he now 


captains. “We had many 
moments over the first 70 
years (Wakefield were 
founded in 1901) of winning 
the Yorkshire Cup" Robin 
Foster, tbe club c hairman. 
said “but we weren’t achiev- 
ing regularly. We had to 
watch Wakefield-born players 
achieving elsewhere." Among 
them were Phil Taylor 
(Northampton and England). 
David Rollitl (Bristol and 
England) and, of course, 
Cusworth, capped ten times 
by England. 

Peter Cook, who played so 
well for the Midlands in the 
divisional championship this 
season, returns with Notting- 
ham tomorrow to the club 
with whom he won Under 23 
honours though, as a Lan- 
cashire lad, he was not part 
of the enormous nursery 
provided by the schools 
which surround Wakefield, of 
which Queen Elizabeth GS. 
Silcoates and Norman ion 
Freeston are probably the 
fc ~r known. 


stayed with Wakefield that 
has helped us tremendously. 
Barley will not be facing 
Nottingham: the centre who 
toured with England during 
the Iasi two summers, is 
building up fitness after 
long-standing leg injury. 

But Harrison, who joined 
England in squad training at 
Twickenham last Sunday, 
will play on the wing as will 
Bennett another wing, who 
survives from that 1976 
season. They, along with 
Heron, tbe prop and captain, 
and Town end. at stand-off 
half are tbe old beads in 
young, inexperienced side 
which will run every piece of 
possession on the basis that 
they may not see very much 
coming their way from the 
Nottingham forwards. 


“It's almost Welsh, bring- 
ing up children here” Mr 
Foster said. “They all play 
with an oval ball and many 
of them, of course, go to 
Rugby League. 1 was asked, 
when we had lost seven 
players to league one season, 
what would happen to Wake- 
field. I told people the Rugby 
League would ran short of 
brass before we ran short of 
players. 


“We have been delighted 
in the last few years to see 
Bryan Barley and Mike 
Harrison win England caps. 
But it's the feel that they've 


“Every copper we've had 
out of tbe cup has been 
ploughed back into the club." 
Mr Foster said — hence the 
new 500-seat stand and 
concrete terracing which can 
accommodate gatherings of 
over 4,000 at College Grove, 
which is part of a sports 
complex. LLanelli pay their 
first visit there on March 8 
which will be a case of Greek 
meeting Greek. 

Wakefield are also con- 
scious that northern pride has 
been dented somewhat rudely 
this season. They and 
Broughton Park are the only 
northern survivors in the 
cup. Earlier this week they 
received the good wishes of 
Orrell, who lost in a drawn 
game to the cup holders Bath 
in the last round. Wakefield 
will fly the flag well. 


London beat last year’s finalists

The London will make their 
first appearance in the semi- 
finals of the Hospitals Cup for 
three years when they pay Sl 
T homas's on February 26. The 
other semi-final will he played 
a week earlier when St Mary’s, 
tbe holders, play Guy’s in a 
repeat of one of last season’s 
semi-finals. 

The London disposed of 
Charing Cross-Westminster, 
who were finalists last year, by 
15-10 in their second round 
encounter, flunks largely to 
Mac Lean, their stand-off half 
who kicked two penalties and 
three drop goals. London's 
forwards also played a major 
pan as did the StMary's pack 

m their convincing 33-3 win 
over Sl. Bartholomews. 


The British Polytechnics won 
their second representative 
match of the season when they 
beat the Universiry Colleges of 


London 11-6 on the British 
Aerospace ground at Bristol. 
Although it was a far from 
exciting encounter both Poly- 
technic wines, Layton and 
Nelson-Williams advanced 
their cause for a place in the 
side against the UAU on 
March 19 at Manchester 
University. 

Nelson-Williams (South

Edwards (Oxford), the Rosslyn

contenders for a place in the

to be chosen on February 17 
which will face the French

“J would say that it is now 
exceptional for a state school to 
have good rugby in depth, that 
is representative XV* all 
through the school. I suspect 
that a frequent problem in state 
schools these days is that 
games are held to be the 
responsibility of the PE special- 
ists. whereas in independent 
schools, all kinds of other 
specialists are willing to run 
teams."

BASKETBALL 


TV misses 
out on 
a Kingston 
thriller 


By Nicholas Hurling 


Portsmouth 114 

Team Kingston 116 


A basket, six seconds from 
time, by Steve Bontrager gave 
Team Polyccll Kingston a 
crucial victory over one of their 
chief rivals for the Carlsbeig 
national league championship 
on Wednesday night. 
Kingston's victory makes them 
slight favourites to regain their 

title. 

The BBC had declined to 
televise die game for their 
Sportsnighl programme 
suggesting that it might not be 
exciting enough, but a capacity 
crowd at the Mountbauen 
Centre must have thought 
otherwise as Kingston sped 
into a 1 5-2 lead after three 
minutes only to be caught by a 
furious response from the 
home side that gave them the 
lead by 58-44 at half-time. 

The introduction of Jod 
Moore, who has been out since 
November 3fier haring glass 
splinters removed from an eye 
when he was involved in a car 
crash, sparked off the Ports- 
mouth revival, which looked 
certain to give them a worthy 
success. But with Dassie and 
the excellent Irish in foul 
trouble. Kingston gradually 
reduced the deficit until 
Bontrager. who had looked 
nothing like his normal prolific 
self in the first half — scoring 
only nine points — levelled the 
scares with SO seconds left 

Bontrager then dispossessed 
Dan Lloyd to set himsel f up for 
what proved to be the winning 
basket with six seconds remain- 
ing. There was still time for 
more drama, however, as Irish, 
who had been fouled by 
Bontrager. missed the first of 
his free shots which could have 
have taken the game into over- 
time. 

Portsmouth have little time 
to pick themselves up. Tonight 
they go to Brunei Ducks 
Uxbridge and Camden, rc vital- 
ized after four successive wins, 
and tomorrow visit Sharp 
Manchester United, the other 
team in contention for the title. 
“We've got no lime to sit back 
and cry,’’ Danny Palmer, the 
Portsmouth coach said. “We’ve 
got to brat United and all the 
rest of them. It was really 
frustrating as we were still eight 
points up with three minutes to 
go. Bui we didn’t play too 
smart.” 

Well as be had played. 
Moore accepted the blame for 
letting the tempo of the game 
run away with him on his 
return, “ft was difficult on my 
first game back, but I should 
have slowed it down.” he said- 
“I take the blame. Bontrager 
was hoL We didn’t do a good 
enough job on him.”

BOXING 


Graham’s victory 
brings him 
closer to Sibson 


By Sriknmar Sen, Boxing Correspondent 

bi's 


The confrontation ■ between 
the arch-rivals Hero! Graham, 
of Sheffield, and Tony Sibson. 
or Leicester, came near yes- 
terday after Graham's em- 
phatic 10th round victory over 
Ayub Kalulo, of Denmark, in 
the European middleweight 

championship at the City Hall. 
Sheffield, on Wednesday night. 

Brend 2 n Ingle. Graham's 
trainer, said yesterday : “No 
problem about Sibson getting a' 
fight with Graham. Barney (B. 
J. Eastwood. Graham's man- 


Mugabi's manager. Mickey 

Duff, is a business associate of 


age 

fifth 


r) said Sibson can have the 
any time as 


gbt any lime as long as 
Barney puts it on. He will put 
up the money but it is up to 
Sibson to go after Graham's 
title” 

it all depends now on 
whether Frank Warren, 
Sibson's exclusive promoter, 
will allow him to box on an 
Eastwood show. Warren had 
been threatening to stop 
Graham’s European challenge 
through a High Court injunc- 
tion because of contractual 
problems. It is difficult to see a 
London promoter allowing 
Eastwood to take the profits 
from a show that would be a 
sell-out if Graham and Sibson 
were to meet. 

Eastwood is in the happy 
position of not needing Sibson 
as much as Sibson needs 
Graham. For Eastwood be- 
lieves it will not be long before 
Graham takes on Marvin 
Hagler. the world champion. If 
Hagler were somehow to be 
beaten in his next defence by 
John Mugabi of Uganda, 
Graham's world chance could 
come even sooner, for 


n 

Eastwood's. Sibson could then 
find that pinning Graham 
down to accepting a challenge 
is even harder than nailing him 
in the ring. 

Eastwood, who is also Barry 

McGuigan's manager, was im- 
pressed by the crowd at City 
Hall and wants to put the 
world title bout on at Sheffield 
football ground. After 
Graham's victory Eastwood 
said: "If this was not a 
champion. 1 don't know who 
is.” 

Graham's insidc-the-di stance 
victory over Kalule was not 
unexpected, however. For the 
shorter Ugandan former world 
champion, was not only a shell 
of his old self but never fully 
able to catch the elusive 
Graham with both hands. I 
have, however, one reservation 
about Graham. Even though 
the Sheffield boxer was on top 
from the start and giving the 
advancing Ugandan Dane a 
pasting round after round, it 
was surprising how often Gra- 
ham was caught by Kalule’s 
jabs til in the end his mouth 
was bleeding, nose was red and 
he had a cut on his cheek 
under his left eye. I am sure 
this fault would not have been 
missed by Ingle, who being the 
strategist that he is is bound to 
go to work on the flaw. 

Kalule has a date to meet 
Sibson in Monte Carlo at the 
end of February but after (hat 
defeat it is unlikely that a 
contest will be held, much of 
its drawing power now having 
been lost.

New York (AP) - A post-bout 
test found there were traces of 
marijuana in Tim 
Witherspoon's system when he 
won the World Boxing Associ- 
ation heavyweight title in 
Atlanta last month, the pro- 
moter Don King said here. 
King said he had been notified 
of the test results by the 
Georgia Boxing Commission. 

Witherspoon, who took the 
title from Tony Tubbs on 
points over 15 rounds decision 
on January 17, said that he had 
smoked marijuana only once, 
“during a party in Philadelphia 
around Thanksgiving” in 
November. 

“That was way before the 
fight, way before training and 
everything." Witherspoon said. 
“It could not help me beat 
Tubbs, because you get sluggish 
when you smoke marijuana. It 
doesn't help you win 
Witherspoon, who was 
named Boxer of The Month on 
Tuesday by the WBA. asked 
the country to forgive him. 
saying: “I let everyone down. I 
gave Don King my word that I 
was dean and that I didn't use 
it. but I lied. 1 hope they will 
forgive me. 1 will never do it 
again.” 


Witherspoon said he had 
smoked the marijuana with 
friends who were celebrating 
the fact that he was getting a 
chance at the title again. 
Witherspoon held the World 
Boxing Council title for less 
than six months in 1984, 
before losing a 12-round de- 
rision to Pinklon Thomas. *T 
was young-minded and foolish 
and went ahead and smoked 
rhis stuff, knowing that they 
were testing people," 
Witherspoon said. “Bui we 
were happy, and I did it 
anyway.” 

The Georgia Boxing 
Commission chairman said he 
was bound by law to make no 
public statement on the matter 
until after a hearing, which was 
scheduled for next Monday. 


“We have already notified the 
World Boxing Association of 
the hearing, and what they do 
after that is up to them,” 
Lanny Franklin, the commis- 
sion chairman, said in Atlanta. 
“As far as we are concerned, 
tbe result of the fight will 
stand. Under our rules, we 
cannot change a decision ex- 
cept for collusion, fraud or a 
mathematical error.”

Sebastian Coe, David H emery, Dan Topols ki: is fear of defeat stronger than will to win? 

David Miller hears about the importance of motivation 


The mind does the running, 
the body pulls the strings 


One of tbe values of sport is 
that, being at tbe most super- 
ficial level about winning and 
losing, it encourages a degree of 
self-ana lysis in tbe participant. 
Sport can help ns to understand 
more about ourselves, and 
simnltaneonsly or easily to 
communicate with others. Sport 
can contribute to a rounded Ufa. 

It is a recognition of this, 
reinforced by an internal under- 
current of some anxiety, that 
has persuaded Oxford Univer- 
sity to initiate a series of 
lectures this term on tbe 

sporting scene, which this week 
Sebastian Coe, David 
H emery. Dan Topols ki and 
Dan Masked gathered in the 
Examination Schools to discuss 
Motivation and Coaching”, 
under the discerning eye of that 
historic motivator Kaiser Bill, 
whose portrait has stared down 
upon generations of undergrad- 
uates. 

Coe and Topols ki particu- 
larly emphasized that, contrary 
to a widespread misconception, 
motivation conies from within 
the competitor rather than from 
the coach- Topolski, himself a 

successful university and inter- 
natioital lightweight oarsman, 
a coach has transformed 
Oxford's record in tbe Boat 
Race from a miserable 12 
victories in 70 years to 10 
successive victories. Coe, who 
chose Loughborough University 
because of its parallel tra- 
ditions in economics and sport, 
gave admissions tutors a lead 
towards the true valency be- 
tween academia and sport with 
his dosing words. 

With that other intellectual 
record breaker, the nemofogist 
Sir Roger Bannister, among the 
audience. Coe said: “The coach, 
whose job it is to train both 
mind and body to simultaneous 
performance, can watch the 
results with objectivity, rather 
than die athlete hims elf. In the 
end. however, the true experi- 
ence and t in self-knowledge 
that goes with it belongs to the 


runner and to him alone. This 
still leaves us with one unan- 
swered crucial question. Was it 
ultimately the mind that made 
success possible, or was ft the 
body that allowed the mind to 
be successful?” 

Many academics at both 
Oxford and Cambridge are 
alarmed by the trend of the 
past 30 years — accelerated by 
the competition for places, 
including the increased female 
intake, and reduced government 
expenditure - in which any- 
thing less than three A grades 
excludes a pnpO, no matter that 
they may have conspicuous 
sporting excellence. Several of 
the sLx graduate colleges at 
Oxford, in contrast take ac- 
count of sporting and other 
achievements for admission, 
while tbe notable success In 
many walks of life by overseas 
Rhodes scholars is continuing 
proof of a positive relevance of 
sporting ability. 

Statistical analysis of gradu- 
ates over the years dem- 
onstrates unmistakably, given 
equal academic status, the 
ability of those who are sports 
orientated io organize them- 
selves, and others, efficiently. A 
first-class degree does not 
necessarily make a first-class 
business or industrial mind, 
though academic excellence at 
university tends to be more 
faithfully reflected In achieve- 
ment in the profession. Cam- 
bridge at (bis moment has an 
ad hoc committee investigating 
the matter of admissions, with 
an emphasis not unconnected 
with protection of die first-class 
fixture status of Oxbridge in 
cricket. As Peter Coe, father 
and coach to Sebastian and a 
retired production engineer, 
observes: “Excellence in any- 
one area has a liberating effect 
on others.” 

The role of the coach fa 
essentially to discover what 
motivates the competitor, which 
varies hugely, and with feVany 
response to exhortation. 


H emery vividly recalls his 
experience of first working with 
an American coach the year 
before the Olympic Games in 
Mexico, when one day a storm 
seemed to have wiped out any 
possibility of outdoor work. Yet 
when H emery suggested a day 
oft tbe coach merely said: 
“The road to Mexico is out 
there”, and in driving wind and 
rain stood for an hour taking 
Hemery’s split times. He 
achieved, in that hoar, the 
absolute confidence of the 
athlete in the coach. 

Yet for H emery and Coe, and 
for any other gold medal 
winner, all the qualities of 
technique and fitness, which 
can be tanght. are worthless, as 

Topolski said, witboat fire in 
the belly, “the wild card, which 
cannot be created”. 

It was Coe who came closest 
to an abstract analysis of 
motivation and the extent to 
which there should be an 
attempt to see it as a reaction 
to measurable objectives rather 
than as jingoistic catch 
phrases: 

O Sports psychology makes 
many assumptions. For the 
elite athlete and coach, whose 
application of science is likely 
to be physiology or 
biomechanics, to accept such 
assumptions is difficult. 

9 Sports psychologists should 
concern themselves not with 
looking at tbe force of motiva- 
tion but showing the strength of 
the drive created by- tbe motive. 
9 The weakness of popular 
theories of motivation is that no 
serious attempt has been made 
to bring out from the shadows 
an athlete's training mid place 
it on an equal footing with 

performance. 

• Motivation centres on the 
fine fine between success and 
failure, but any reasonable 

coach knows that if the 
performance is measured solely 
in terms of winning or losim* 
then little can be learned froii 
it.

Judicial review should not

save m the exceptional case. 

The House of Lords so 
held, dramming an appeal by 
the applicants, Mr Ricky 

\ £“5H!T r Mr* Angela 
Puhlhofer, from the decision 
of the Cburt of Appeal (Lord 
Juaice Ackner, Lord Justice 
Slade and Lord Justice 
GlidewdI) (The Times Au- 
gust. 17,1985) reversing Mr 
Justice Hodgson, who had 
granted the applicants judi- 
cial review of the decision of 
the Hillingdon London Bor- 
ough Council that the appli- 
cants were not homeless or 
threatened with home- 
lessness. 

Mr James Goudie, QC, Mr 
David Watldnson and Mr 
Robin Allen for the appli- 
cants; Mr Konrad 
Schiemann, QC and Mr 
Robin Barra tt for the council. 

>, LORD BRIGHTMAN said 
v that the 1977 Act had 
generated a mass of litigation, 
at the receiving end of which 
were local authorities 
endeavouring to cope with 
intractable bousing problems, 
and to balance competing 1 
claims to limited housing 
resources. 

Section 1(1) of the Act 


or lacked the basic amenities 
of family life; such basic 
amenities should include not 
only sleeping but also cook- 
washing and eating 
facilities. 6 

. if the premises were defi- 
cient in any of those respects, 
they were not accommoda- 
tion. The local authority had 
. to take into account the size 
of the family and whether the 
premises were capable of 
being regarded as a “home" 
for that family. Put shortly, 
“accommodation" had to 
provide the ordinary facilities 
of a residence. 

Therefore, they argued, no 
local authority properly di- 
recting itself could have 
formed the view tha t the 
room allotted to the appli- 
cants at the guest bouse was 
"accommodation" within the 
meaning of section 1, at least 
after the child of the marriage 
had been born in April 1984, 
because it had then bean 
overcrowded in the statutory 
sense and had lacked both 
exclusive and communal fa- 
cilities for cooking and 
clothes- washing. 

Mr Justice ■ Hodgson, re- 
flecting the observations of 
the Cburt of Appeal in R v 
Wyre Borough Council, Ex 
pane Parr ( The Times, Feb- 
ruary 4, 1982; [1983] 2 HLR 
71), had concluded: "The 
accommodation in this case 
is so inappropriate . . . 
particularly in respect of 
overcrowding ... that no 
reasonable local authority 
properly directing itself . . . 
could come to the conclusion 


any dramatic increase in its 
available housing stock. 

It was intended to provide 
for the homeless a lifeline of 
last resort, not to enable 
them to make jmoads into 
the local authority's waiting 
list of apjpHcams for housing. 

Some inroads there proba- 
bly were bound to be. but in 
the end the local authority 
would have to balance the 
priority needs of the home- 
less on the one hand and the 
legitimate aspirations of 
those on their housing wait- 
ing list on the other. 

In that situation. Parlia- 
ment plainly, and wisely, had 
placed no qualifying adjective 
before the word “accom- 
modation" in section 1 or 
section 4 of the Act, and 
none was to be implied. 

The word “appropriate” or 
“reasonable" was not to be 
imported. Nor was accom- 
modation not accommoda- 
tion because it might in 
certain circumstances be un- 
fit for 


because he would have no 
accommodation in any rele- 
vant sense. 

In the instant case the good 
faith of the council was not 
in dispute. On the facts in 
evidence, it was plain that 
the council had been entitled 
to find that the applicants 
were not homeless for the 
purposes of the 1977 An 
because they had accommo- 
dation within the ordinary 
meaning of that expression. 

His Lordship was- troubled 
at the prolific use of judicial 
review for the purpose of 
challenging the performance

The plight of the homeless 


Housing Act 1957 or might 
involve overcrowding within 
the meaning of Part IV of 
that Act 

Those particular statutory 
criteria were not to be 
imported into the 1977 Act 
for any purpose. What was 
properly to be regarded as 
accommodation was a ques- 
tion of fact to be decided by 
the local authority. There 
wore no rules. 


-x- “a" miM i, . that ihis particular accommo- 

pro video: A person is ltome- dation was appropriate wiih- 
fea fm- the purposes of this s^on 

Several features of the 1977 
Act had to be borne in mind. 
Although it bore the word 
"Housing" in its short title, it 
was not an Act that imposed 
any duty ona local authority 
to house the homeless. As the 
king title indicated, its object 
was to make "further provi- 
sion as to the functions of 
local authorities with respect 
to persons who are homeless 
or threatened with home- 
lessness ..." 

It. was, an Act to assist. . 
persons who were homeless, 


Act if he has no accora- 
modation~.".“He" included 
any other person who nor- 
mally resided with him as a 
member of his family. 
“ Accom modation"was not 
defined. 

At the date of their 
application for judicial re-, 
view the applicants had 
occupied one room at the 
guest house containing . a 
double and a single bed, a 
baby's cradle; a dressing 
table, a pram and a steriliser 
unit. Than were no' cooking 
or washing facilities in the 
room. There were three : 


Clearly some places m 
which a person might choose 
or be constrained to live 
could not properly be regard- 
ed as accommodation at all: 
it would be a misuse of 
language to describe Dioge- 
nes as having occupied ac- 
commodation within the 
meaning of the 1977 Acl 

What tiie local authority 
had to consider, in reaching a 
decision whether a person 
was homeless for the pur- 
poses of the 1977 Act, was 
whether he had what could 
property be- described as 
accommodation within the 
ordinary ~ meaning of that 
word in the English language. 

Although, however, the 
statutory definition of over- 
crowding in the 1957 Act had 
no relevance, accommoda- 
tion .must,, by definition,, be 
capable of accommodating. 
If, therefore, a place was 
properly capable of being 
regarded as accommodation 


not an Act to provide, them . from an objective standpoint 
with' homes. It was ah Act . but was so small a space that 


was a desperate one, and the 
plight of the applicants in the 
present case commanded the 
deepest sympathy, but it was 
not appropriate that the 
discretionary remedy of judi- 
cial review should be made 
use of to monitor the actions 
of local authorities under the 
Act save in the exceptional 
case. 

Where the existence or 
non-existence of a feet was 
left to the judgment and 
discretion of a public body 
and that feci involved a 
broad spectrum ranging from 
the obvious to the debatable 
to the just conceivable, it was 
the duty of the court to leave 
the decision of that feet to 
the public body save where it 
was obvious that the public 
body, consciously or uncon- 
sciously, was acting perverse- 
ly. 

His Lordship hoped that 
there would be a lessening in 
the number of challenges 
mounted against local au- 
thorities who were en- 
deavouring. in extremely 
difficult circumstances, to 
perform their duties under 
the 1977 Act with due regard 
for all their other housing 
problems.

Until the arrival of the 
New Lancia Thema last 
autumn, the Italian company 
have never managed to make 
an impact on the profitable 
executive car sector in Brit- 
ain. The Gamma and Trevi 
were attractive enough but 
there was always a question 
. mark about their quality. 
And for a company already 
battling to shed itself of a no- 
ionger justified reputation for 
rusting, even the slightest 
about quality became a major 
stumbling block to sales. 

If the quality of the Lancia 
Thema I have just been 
driving is representative of its 
kind, then Lancia at last has 
a well-built, competitively 
priced executive car to spear- 
head its fight back. And it 
needs all. the help it can get. 

Since the the Heron group 
acquired the concession for 
Lancia UK in April, 1983, 
sales have plunged disas- 
trously from 5,000 cars in 
1982 to 2,600 in 1984. 

Some ten months ago 
against a background of 
rumours suggesting that it 
had bad enough and that it 
was pulling out. Heron 
reorganised its Lancia 
management team and 
slashed overheads by moving 
the whole operation to the 
premises of its existing 
Suzuki import business at 
Crawley, West Sussex. 

Sales crept up slowly to 
reach 3077 cars by the end of 
last year, an increase of 17%. 
Lancia is by do stretch of the 
imagination out of the wood 
yet but helped by the timely 
arrival last summer of the 
trend-setting new Y10 
Supermini and more recently 
the up-market Thema, there 
are encouraging signs. 

There is more good news 
to come with the impending 
launch in June of the face- 
lifted Delta Prisma and the 
possibility of the most excit- 
ing Lancia yet, a Ferrari- 
engined Thema, which will 
be announced shortly to- 
gether with a 4-wheel drive 
version of each model in the 
range. I shall be surprised 
however, if at this early stage 
m its recovery. Heron im- 
ports more than one example 
of the new 4x4 models. 

With the fantastic new 
turbo-charged and super- 
charged Lance Delta S4 rally 
flyer, winning the RAC and 
Monte Carlo rallies on its 
first two outings, the pub- 
licity machine will be work- 
ing overtime. 

Four versions of the 
Thema. all fuel-injected, are 
being imported starting with 
a two-litre model costing 



The Thema V6: the pick of Lancia's bunch 





Ford Escort 
the latter at £15,500 and the 
one I tested, the 2.8- litre V6 
automatic at £14,300. 

I had driven all four 
previously but only for a 
couple of hours. That was 
time enough however, to 
convince me that the V6 
automatic is the pick of the 
bunch. The others will find 
equally adamant supporters, 
particularly among younger 
performance-conscious 
exectives but for my money 
the big V6 is the more 
relaxing companion. Its

smooth flowing power is so

What a pity however, that

fitted out with imitation 
suede leather upholstery 
which looks even better than 
the real thing and is said to 
be very slain resistant. Stan- 
dard equipment includes an 
adjustable steering column, 
electric front seat adjustment, 
tinted glass sunroof, rear 
window blinds, automatic 
temperature control, central 
door locking, electric win- 
dows, electric mirrors and 
self-levelling headlamps. 

The test included a 400- 
mile round trip from the 
Midlands to the South Coast 
with only a short break out of 
the car. Despite driving rain 
and high winds for most of 
the way, Thema carried me 
along in such splendid, iso- 
lated luxury that I was still 
surprisingly fresh when I 
returned home. 

Anti-lock brakes 

The news that anti-lock 
brakes will be available on 
the new Ford Escort for the 
first time on a popular priced 
sir suggests that anti-lock 
braking is following the same 
pattern as disk brakes. When 
they were introduced in the 
late 50s they were only fitted 
to expensive, high perfor- 
mance models. It was more 
than 10 years before they 
found their way onto the 
family saloon. Today they are 
standard fittings on almost 
all cars sold. 


Anti-lock systems similarly 
appeared on expensive per- 
formance care in the late 70s 
and that remained the posi- 
tion until Ford launched the 
new Grenada a year ago with 
the German Tevis ami-lock 
system fitted as standard 
throughout the range. 

Bui the electronic systems 
developed by Tavis and 
Bosch are expensive. Actual 
prices payed by the carmak- 
ers are difficult to find but 
where they are offered as 
optional extras they can cost 
from £650 to some £1,500. 

The Lucas Girling System ' 
appearing on the new Escort 
uses hydro-mechanical tech- 
niques which are claimed to 
be much less complex and 
more cost effective. Unlike 
electronic systems however, 
it does not use sensors on all 
four wheels, relying instead 
on mechanical monitors on 
the front wheels only. These ■ 
in turn control the diagonally * 
opposite tear wheel through 
load apportioning valve. 

Doubts have been ex- 
pressed about the system on 
two counts. Can a median i- . 
cal layout possibly react as 
quickly as an electronic 
circuit and is front wheel 
sensing sufficient? Until I 
have tried a car equipped m 
this way, 1 am staying 
neutraL If experience is any - 
guide, then Lucas Girling has 
been in the anti-lock business 
for much too long to risk 
ruining its reputation with a 
half-baked launch. And so for 
that matter has Ford. 

Lucas Girling began experi- 
menting with anti-lock some 
25 years ago. Starting with 
"wheel slide" protection for 
railway carriages, it pro- 
gressed to the very successful 
Skidcheck system for trucks, 
buses and trailers which is 
now the market leader in 
Europe. 


Ford is offering the Lucas 
Girling system as an optional 
extra at around £300. Actual 
prices will not be announced 
until the new Escort appears 
early next month. However, 
this price is based on small 
initial volume. My enquiries 
suggest that it will be halved 
when production runs be- 
come more economic. 

The ability to steer while 
braking on rain, snow or ice 
affected roads is such an 
enormous advance in car 
safety that the day must 
come when governments will 
make anti-lock brakes com- 
pulsory. If the Lucas Girling 
system is all it's cracked up 
to be that day has moved 
appreciably nearer with last 
week's - announcement 


Tenant is unable to Rent review clause not 
re-register rent term relating to rent 


Regina v Chief Rent Officer 
for Ke nsi ngto n and Chelsea' 
London Borough Council, Ex 
parte Moberly 

Before Lewd Justice Nome. Lord 
Justice Woolf and Sir George 
Walter 

■ t {Judg m e nt given January 30] . 

There was do provision in section 
67 of (be Rent An 1977 permitting 
an application by a tenant for the 
re-registration of an existing rent, 
and a determination by a rent 
officer made upon such an applica- 
tion, by which be increased (he 
rent, should be quashed. 

The Court of Appeal so held, 
allowing an appeal by the tenant. 
Sheila Moberiey, from the refusal 
by Mr Justice McCullough on 
November 29, 19S4. to grant her 
judical review by way of cenioran 
to quash a registration by a rent 
officer on December 7, 1983. of an 
increased rent for the flat occupied 
by her. 

The appellant in person; Mr Guy 
San key for the drier rent officer. 

LORD JUSTICE NOURSE said 
that the rent for the appellant' s flat 
haul been registered at £14 a week 
on Octobcr O.1980. In 1983. fearing 
(mistakenly) that after three years 
, ter landlords would be free to 
r i n c re as e her rent without reference 
to the rent officer, rile applied to 
him for a farther determination at 
the existing rent. . 

The landlords were informed, 
and replied that they wished the 
rent to be increased. The rent 
officer, having informed the appel- 
lant that her rent could not nave 
been increased unless the landlords 
first applied to him. told her u was 
open to her to make a written 
request to withdraw ber application. 

She claimed to have done so. 
though the rent officer dented 
having received ber letter. Op 
December 7. 1983. he made his 
detemtijation and registered a new 

rent of £16 a week. . 

The ippdhht argued that section 
67ft) and (3) of .the 

permtned two kmds of appwauon 
u the rent officer an appp 0 8 ^ 0 ” 
for the 'nfewi reparation of a rent, 
and an application for 
non ofa different «m (winch couM 
not be "**** within three yeans oi 
the previous registration). 

Accordingly the appellants 
application for the rwtgmranoo of 
the same rent was notcTfectrvc and 
the rent officer should not “ awe 


made the fresh determination which 
be did. 

The judge had concluded that 
Here was nothing in section 67(1) to 
prevent an application for the 
registration of the same rent as that 
already registered. - 

.But in his Lordship's view that 
was not the. case. Otherwise, it 
would be open to any tenant to re- 
- register - a tow rent every three 
months, and so prevent (under 
section 67(3}) the landlo rd reg isicr- 
mg any increased ■ rent within three 
years. It would defeat the intentions 
of the Act. Further support for the 
applicant's construction was de- 
rived from paragraphs 4 and 5 of 
Schedule II to the Acl 

In tire circumstances, the appel- 
lant was entitled to judicial review 
of the rent officer's decision and. in 
the exercise of his discretion, his 
Lordship would grant the enter of 
certiorari sought 

Lord Justice Woolf . and Sr 
George Waller delivered concurring 
judgments.

Regina v Dunstable Justices,

A solicitor should not prosecute a 
case against a defendant whom be

The Queen’s Bench Divisional 
Court (Lord Justice Watkins and 
Mr Justice Nolan) so held quashing 
tire defendant’s three convictions

review of his convictions by the 
Dunstable Justices on March 8, 
1985 of permitting his motor vehicle 
to be driven by a person not 
bolding a driving licence, having no 
insurance and no test certificate. 

LORD JUSTICE WATKINS said 
that it was absolutely vital for the 
appearance of forfoess m the 
conduct of proceedings that, a 
defendant should not be faced with 
such an alarming prospect. U must 
have been posriNe that but forthe 
severe discomfort that the defen- 
dant must have feft. ho «wd m r*“

MFI Properties Ltd v BICC 
Group Pension Trust Ltd 
Before Mr Justice Hoffmann 
(Judgment given January 31] 

A rem review danse was not a 
term relating io rent. Mr Justice 
Hoffmann bdd m proc ee di ng s by 
tire, plaintiffs, MFI Properties Ltd, 
against the defendants, BICC 
Group (tension Trust Ltd. in 
construing the words “tire terms of 
this sub-undertease (other than 
those relating to rent)" which 
occurred in provisions for rent 
reviews. 

Mr Nigd Hague, QC and Mr 
Nicholas Patten for the plaintiffs; 
Mr Nicholas Dowding. for the 
defendants. 

Mr JUSTICE HOFFMANN said 
that a short question of construc- 
tion arose mi two identical rent 
review clauses in an underlease and 
a reversionary underlease of 
commercial premises in Norwich. 

The initial underlease was for a 
term of 15 years from December 3. 
1974 and the reversionary 
underlease for 35 years commenc- 
ing on . the expiry of the initial 
underlease, both of which provided 
for. frvo-yearty rent reviews. 

The relevant provisions were that 
“the rent . . . reserved shall be 
revised so as u> equal the rent at 
which having regard to (he terms of 
this sub-undertease (other than 
those relating to rent) the demised 
premises might then reasonably be 
expected to be let in the open 
market by a willing landlord to a 
willing tenant for a term of 20 yean 
with vacant possession 

The issue was whether tire words 
in parenthesis “other than those 
relating to rent’’ required an 
assumption that the hypothetical 
letting contained no rent review 
clause. 

The landlord said that tire rent 
review clause was plainly a term 
relating to- tent- which must 
therefore be assumed to be ex- 
cluded; [be tenant said that white 
that might be (be literal meaning, 
the -consequences of such a 

construction were so contrary to 
common sense that the words 
should be construed more narrowly, 
so as to include only terms 
concerning rent which the review 
was intended to revise. 

A rent review danse was tterigneri 
to deal with a particular commer- 
oal problem, namely that of a 
tenant who wanted security of 
tenure for a lengthy term, and a 
landlord who. in times of inflation 
or a. rapidly changing property 


market, did not want to commit 
himself to a fixed rent forthe whole 
of that term. H therefore permitted 
the rent to be periodically revised to 
an amount calculated on the 
assumption of a fresh rent at the 
relevant date. 

The terms upon which such 
hypothetical letting had to be 
assumed to take place would 
naturally depend in each case on 
the particular language of the rent 
clausa Prima facie the ponies bad 
to be assumed to hi tend the 
hypothetical letting to be for the 
residue of the actual lease, and in 
the circumstances existing at the 
relevant date. Bin the langu _ 
might show that a departure from 
reality was intended. 

Where the language was capable 
of more than one meaning, the 
court was emitted io select the 
meaning which accorded with the 
apparent purpose rather titan one 
which appeared commercially ir- 
rational 

Here, precisely tire same words 
were used as in section 34 of the 
Landlord and Tenant Act 1954, and 
it seemed clear that in that context 
they had been treated as bearing the 
meaning . contended for by the 
tenant, rather than the wider 
meaning suggested by the landlord 
The exclusion of the rent review 
clause from the hypothetical tease 
was an assumption which had no 
apparent commercial justification, 
and which gave rise to practical 
problems. 

It was common knowledge that in 
practice landlords did not nowadays 
grant long leases of commercial 
premises at rack rents without rent 
reviews. 

In this case the animal was not so 
much fabulous as extinct, but the 
problem was the same. 

A valuer asked to determine the 
rent at which, premises could be lei 
io the open .market for a lengthy 
term without a rent review had no 
comparables in the real world to 
which he could refer. All be could 
do was to make an arbi t rar y 
adjustment: it was improbable that 
the parlies could have intended the 
rent to be determined in that way. 

The only plausible alternative to 
the literal construction was the 
narrower construction advanced by 
the tenant. That was the construc- 
tion which his Lordship prefer r ed, 
and there would be a declaration 
accordingly.

Agony in Colombia wins photography award 


Letter from Manila 


By Clifford Longiey 
Religious Affairs 
Correspondent 


With only minor reserva- 
tions. (he Anglican report 
highly critical of government 
policy in the inner cities was 
adopted as official policy by 
the General Synod of the 
Church of England yesterday. 

An attempt to distance the 
chuTch from the more polili 
cal and controversial aspects 
of the report was defeated. 
One frequent criticism was 
taken on board, however 
that it dealt incompletely 
with the more specifically 
spiritual pans of the church's 
function. 

There will therefore be 
■■further examination of the 
opponunities for the church 
to fulfil its evangelistic 
mission" in inner city areas, 
which the synod asked its 
standing committee to take 
in hand. 

The report, published in 
December, castigated the 
Government for allegedly 
cutting the level of govern- 
ment spending in inner city 
areas, and proposed a mas- 
sive transfer of financial 
resources to the less prosper- 
ous parts of Britain. 

Its publication brought at- 
tacks from government 
sources for being left-wing, 
even Marxist. Although the 
Archdeacon of West Ham. 
the Vcn. Peter Dawes, said in 
proposing it that this did not 
mean endorsement of e very- 
line. a member for Norwich 
diocese. Mr. Paul Rippon. 
moved the exclusion of the 
section concerning govern- 
ment policy .But this was well 
defeated. 

Yesterday's debate was 
largely about details. There 
was an approximately even 
division concerning the 
report's proposed Commis- 
sion for Black Anglican 
Concerns, the one suggestion 
opposed by the synod's 
standing committee. An 
amendment supporting the 
idea was narrowly defeated. 

The Synod accepted in 
principle proposals for the 
establishment of a £10 mil- 
lion Church Urban Fund. 



Hope and fear in 
‘foreign meddlers’ 


To Resident Ferdinand 
Marcos they are “foreign 
meddlers*’. But to the oppo- 
sition camp foreign 
correspondents covering the 
surrealistic presidential elec- 
tion they are talismans of 
hope for a reasonably fair 
test of voters’ opinions. 


The problem for" Mr 
Marcos is that foreign news- 
papers introduce an element 
of realism into a country 
which is no longer sure what 
is real and what is imaginary 
about its leader after 20 
years of his stewardship. 

.Foreign newspapers have 
broken the stories which 
have been the principal 
issues in the campaign: the 
-feting of Mr Marcos’s war- 
time record as leader of the 
Mahariika “fire men" guer- 
rilla force against the Japa- 
nese, and allegations of 
fortunes stashed abroad not 
only in cash but in property. 


a foray inio Mindanao last 
week the Davao airport 
looked as though it were 
staging an exhibition of 
business jets. Mr Marcos 
arrived in the presidential 
Fofckcr F2S twin-jet airliner, 
named Mahariika after his 
now-discrcditcd guerrilla 
unit. Mrs Marcos used 
more stylishly feminine 
white Dassault Falcon Exec- 
utive jet; “Bong- Bong”, foe 
President's son. who also 
happens to be. governor of 
the family's home province

Only skiers gain as snow brings road chaos 


By Ronald Faux 
Ski resorts in Scotland 
suffered an embarrassment of 
snow yesterday, while m 
other parts of the country it 
brought confusion to the 
roads. 

The falls were so heavy- 
roads to • the Cairngorm 
slopes ont of A vie mo re and at 
the Devil’s Elbow- in Glen 
Shee. near Blaigowrie, were 
completely blocked. The 
Lecht ski centre on the Cock 
Bridge Tomntoul Road was 
manned by an automatic voice 
on the telephone warning that 
all access roads had been 
closed by drifting snow and 
were unlikely to reopen that 
day. 

On Cairngorm about 1.000 
resolute skiers took their cars 
as close to the slopes as 


possible and then trudged to 
the ski lifts. 

The mountains were thick- 
ly blanketed with snow in 
contrast with the Christmas 
holidays when skiers had 
little more than their memo- 
ries of the sport to enjoy. 

In the morning rush hour 
motorways in the South-east 
were worst bit, with lane 
closures and speed restric- 
tioos on all principal routes to 
London. The Automobile As- 
sociation said that the worst 
congestion was on the Ml 
south- bound carriageway be- 
tween Northampton and 
Harpenden. where ice and 
accidents brought traffic to a 
standstill from junction 15 to 
junction 9. 

The Ad was closed by- 
accidents between South 


Minims and London Colney, 
in Hertfordshire. 


In Essex black ice caused a 
series of accidents and 
blocked the A12 and A127. 

The M4 elevated section in 
west London was dosed by an 
accident on the ice, and in the 
Thames Valley the M40 was 
reduced to a single lane by- 
snow np to fire inches deep. 

In the Midlands snow and 
ice gripped 12 comities, 
dosing steep sections of the 
A34. and bringing out the 
snow ploughs at Birmingham 
International and East Mid- 


the Penniaes. The Al in 
Northumbria was only nego- 
tiable with extreme care. 


In the west Of En gland 
principal routes across the 
Cotswolds were dosed for 
lorries. 


lands airports. Many high 
routes in Derbyshire and 
north Staffordshire were 
closed. 

The M62 was for a time 
the only passable route across: 


The AA criticized lack of 
salting and gritting in some 
areas, particularly on the Ml 
and a Department of Trans- 
port spokesman admitted that 
Bedfordshire County Council 
had miscalculated by with- 
drawing gritting teams at 11 
pm on Wednesday night 
Although they were called ont 
again at 4 am it was already 


Although temperatures 
were little lower than minus 
three degrees centigrade over- 
night the Weather Centre 
said yesterday that it would 
stay cold for several days 
with persistent frost and more 
snow showers, particularly 
near the east coast. 


• BIELLA, Italy: Two 
mountaineers who disap- 
peared dming a snow storm 
in the Italian Alps 10 days 
ago survived by sheltering In 
a hole they dug in the snow, 
according to the police (Reu- 
ter reports). 


loo late because the newly 
fallen snow had already been 
hard packed into a surface 
like an ice rink. 


Alessandro * Benna and 
Roberto Miglietti were caught 
in a blizzard while climbing 
in the mountains near Vercel- 
li, north-west Italy. 


Until 1984 Filipinos would 
probably never have learned 
anything of these reports, 
but now there is a vigorous 
opposition press which glee- 
fully reprints every un- 
complimentary report it can 
get its hands on. Some of the 
president's journalist cronies 
take n rather hard: one 
columnist wondered in print 
if the American journalists 
might not be bringing a kind 
of journalistic Aids. 

But foe foreign journalists 
can hardly be ignored. There 
are already about 1,000 if 
you include the Americas 
networks, all of which have 
at least four camera teams in 
the country at fabulous cost. 

But not even foe Ameri- 
can networks can match the 
expenditure of the presiden- 
tial campaign. The children 
of sugar workers may be 
starving to death on foe 
island of Negros Occidental, 
but Mrs Imelda Marcos sees 
nothing incongruous in 
wearing an awesome di- 
amond ring in some of foe 
country's more backward 
areas. The cost of operating 
the presidential “air force" 
alone would transform the 
lives of thousands of her 
husband’s subjects. 

When foe President made

authorities.

Food prices 


Consumption of mushrooms,
